After several months of deliberation, I have decided to reboot the AWC, and this new incarnation of the federation will go back to the roots and stay there.
This federation will not use any bootlegs like the previous one did, since that led to oversaturation on the roster. We’re keeping it to official cards, and hopefully this will allow me to simply build up a solid foundation and keep the AWC manageable.
Commissioner: Thakur the Oppressor
New Age Gladiators
Dark Menace (Manager)
Necro Butcher (GOA)
Rush & Turmoil (Manager: The Leveler)
Category Five & Torment
Evolution (Manager: Doomsayer)
Santon the Loner

Yeah, the last fed was insane! But you managed it very well! Looking forward to the reboot!

AWC Reborn Card 1
This card features the first four matches of the Heavyweight tournament and the first two matches of the Tag Team and Women’s tournaments.
Spike (4) d. Disaster (6) via Pinfall (Head Rammer) 5*
In an intense back and forth match between two Gladiator Elites, neither side was willing to give up the upper edge, with Disaster even kicking out of the MEGA DESTROYER. The battle would continue until Spike would hit the Head Rammer one final time to put Disaster down.
After the match, the two men shook hands in a sign of sportsmanship and respect.
Apex w/The Dark Menace d. Wolf (4) w/Brute via Pinfall (turnbuckle counter) 2*
In a dominant display by the newest Gladiator, Apex showcased his might as he overpowered Wolf on numerous occasions, even with Brute getting involved in the match. Wolf was a fighter, though, with him kicking out of the APEX OF GLORY once. The match would end however after a hard clothesline from Apex as he was coming out from the turnbuckle.
Category Five (2) & Torment (1) d. Brute (2) & Massacre (4) via Pinfall (GLADIATOR PILEDRIVER) 2.25*
It was a back and forth match between both teams until Torment and Category Five hit some excellent double team moves on Brute, hitting him with the GLADIATOR PILEDRIVER twice throughout the match to eventually win it.
Storm d. Aethran Soldier (1) via Pinfall (VICTORY LAP) .5*
Storm got an Aethran Soldier in the first round and she absolutely dominated it. The soldier fought valiantly, but she was no match for the wrestling trained Storm, who would hit the MILITARY PURGE and the VICTORY LAP to secure the win.
Malice (1) d. Mayhem (4) w/Alpha Female/Strafe via Pinfall (FIELDS OF MALICE) 2.5*
This was a back and forth match between both wrestlers until Malice stepped up and hit the FIELDS OF MALICE late into the match. While Strafe distracted the referee the first time, Malice just went back up and hit the FIELDS OF MALICE again to win the match.
Aethran Overmaster (2) w/Thrash d. Screw (4) via Pinfall (REIGN OF THE OVERMASTER) 3*
In a back and forth match between the distant past and the recent past, these two showcased their might in the ring, but the Overmaster was better than Screw in every way, eventually putting it all to an end with the REIGN OF THE OVERMASTER.
Rumble & Overkill (1) d. Gladiator Siege (Siege (2) & Fist) via Submission (massive bear hug) .75*
Before the match, the Dark Menace was ejected.
The match got chaotic, but Siege was never able to make the tag to Fist, allowing Overkill and Rumble to beat down on Siege and eventually get a surprise win with a bear hug.
Thrash d. Aethran Soldier via Pinfall (FEMME FATAL) SQUASH
This match was only two completed moves as Thrash countered a left hook and hit a single arm DDT on the Soldier before finishing her off with the FEMME FATAL.
After the match, Storm comes out and eyes up Thrash. These two gladiators are on a crash course to the semi finals and the crowd is interested in the result.

AWC Reborn Card 2
This card features the second half of the first round of the Heavyweight, Tag Team, and Women’s Championship tournaments.
Evolution (1) w/Doomsayer d. Solitude (2) via Pinfall (HIGHLY EVOLVED) 1.5*
It was a back and forth match between the two Aethrans that saw not a lot of excitement, but a lot of tension. Eventually, Evolution was able to find an opening after hitting a diving elbow drop from the top rope and he quickly finished it off with the HIGHLY EVOLVED (+3).
Ultimatum d. Santon the Loner (3) via Submission (LEAVE AND LIVE) 1.5* SQUASH
It was a completely one sided match with Ultimatum completely destroying Santon the Loner, hitting the STAY AND PERISH within two moves, only for Santon to not give up. A Face Remover, some human torture racks, and the LEAVE AND LIVE later, and Santon finally gave it up.
Gladiator Rebellion (Rage (4) & Havoc) w/Strafe d. Gladiator Z (Scar (1) & Necro Butcher) via Submission (ground and pound) 1.25*
It was a back and forth match between both teams with Rage taking serious damage from Scar and Necro Butcher, even taking the DEATH BY AETHRAN (though Havoc did make the save). Eventually, however, Rage was able to find an opening in Scar’s defenses and brought him down for the ground and pound, forcing Scar to submit.
Alpha Female d. Destina (3) via Pinfall (SLAVE NO MORE) 1.5*
It was a highly contested battle, but Destina was unable to overcome the odds and she would eventually fall to the SLAVE NO MORE after numerous times.
After the match, both Scar and Necro Butcher charge the ring and give Alpha Female a double clothesline. Destina would get back up and lay in the punishment, hitting her with the DESTINY’S SPIN before the Gladiator Rebellion were able to run in and save Alpha Female/Strafe from any further injuries.
(Alpha Female is injured for 4 fight cards.)
Vengeance (5) d. Monolith (2) via Stoppage (Eye Cleaver) 3.5*
Monolith threw and slammed Vengeance across the ring, but Vengeance would not say “die”, even surviving the I BREAK YOU once. Vengeance gave it everything he got, somehow hitting the HELTER SKELTER onto Monolith midway through the match. Ultimately, it was the Eye Cleaver that dealt the final blow to Monolith, forcing the referee to stop the match.
After the match, the Aethran Overmaster comes out and the two of them lay a further beatdown on Monolith to the delight of the fans. As the Overmaster hit the Revolutionary Spear, he threw Monolith over to Vengeance who then hit the HELTER SKELTER again before going back to the eye. A few more seconds in the Eye Cleaver later, and Monolith was nearly blinded in his left eye. Vengeance and the Overmaster went to the back to celebrate.
(Monolith is injured for 5 fight cards.)
Mayhem Unleashed d. Crush (4) via Pinfall (Mayhem Madness) 2*
It was not as one sided as many had expected, but it was clear that Crush was in over his head as Mayhem Unleashed crushed Crush’s ego pretty fast, not even having to use the LEAP OF DOOM to win the match, but instead just smashing Crush with his chain and hitting the Mayhem Madness multiple times.
Rush (4) & Turmoil (11) w/The Leveler d. Thunder (7) & Paralyze (1) w/Thrash via Pinfall (ADRENALINE RUSH) 5*
In what many could consider one of the greatest tag team matches of all time, all four competitors put it all on the line, looking for a shot to advance to the second round of the tag team tournament. Paralyze and Thunder would hit the TEAM PARALYSIS on Turmoil (who put his body in massive pain at this point), but The Leveler got involved and hit Thunder with the metal arm, allowing Rush a chance to eventually get in and bring the match back in favor of the smaller team. Rush would hit Paralyze with the ADRENALINE RUSH to win the match.
Bulldoze w/The Dark Menace d. Aethran Soldier (2) via Pinfall (Powerbomb) 1*
Bulldoze showcased her power on the Aethran Soldier, and while the soldier did fight, she was no match for Bulldoze, who hit the soldier with the BARRAGE and followed it up with a Deathjump and a Powerbomb to win the match.
Afterwards, Bulldoze’s stablemate Storm comes out, and the two of them shake hands. The potential of this matchup brews as the cameras fade to black.

AWC Reborn Card 3
This card features the second round of all the major tournaments.
Apex (3) w/The Dark Menace d. Spike (3) w/Paralyze via Pinfall (APEX OF GLORY) 3*
It was a strong back and forth match between the two gladiators, and while Dark Menace watched, Paralyze got involved after Apex hit the APEX OF GLORY the first time. This did not deter the P1 fighter, however, and we was able to hit the APEX OF GLORY a second time to win the match.
Malice d. Aethran Overmaster via Pinfall (FIELDS OF MALICE) DUD
Thunder got ejected from ringside before the match began, and that threw the Overmaster off his game, with Malice coming in and hitting The Wasteland four times in a row and winning a brawl on the outside before landing the FIELDS OF MALICE to win the match.
After the match, the Overmaster argues with the referee about the count until Malice saw evil intentions and attacked the Overmaster. Malice would then tell him to stay down while hitting the FIELDS OF MALICE multiple times in a row. The pain of the move eventually caused the Overmaster to feel some serious pain in the gut. The referee tries to stop him, only for him to be thrown out of the way, allowing Malice to hit the move some more.
After a little more damage, Malice celebrated in the ring as the Overmaster was carried out on a stretcher.
(Aethran Overmaster is injured for 6 fight cards.)
In Thakur’s office, the AWC staff await a decision, but considering that Malice is still in the tournament, a decision won’t be made until Card 6 at least, just so Malice can finish up the Heavyweight Championship tournament.
Rumble (1) & Overkill d. Category Five (1) & Torment (4) via Pinfall (TURNBUCKLE TRAP) 1.5*
It was a strong back and forth match between both teams, but Overkill and Rumble worked over Torment a lot in the early goings. It wouldn’t deter the team of Category Five and Torment, however, and Torment would eventually tag in Category Five into the match. However, after a little bit of a fight, Category Five couldn’t keep up and got hit with the TURNBUCKLE TRAP by Overkill to secure the win.
After the match, Torment charges in and knocks Rumble down, giving Category Five and Torment the chance to beat down on Overkill. They would beat down on Overkill for a while until Category Five was able to get Overkill in position to hit the HURRICANE AETHRA and hits it to near perfection. This caused Overkill to land badly and for a bone to crack, causing Rumble to run in alongside Malice to make sure their partner was okay.
(Overkill is injured for 5 fight cards.)
Storm (5) w/The Dark Menace d. Thrash (6) w/Thunder via Pinfall (MILITARY PURGE) 5*
In a classic match between two amazing women, Storm and Thrash put each other through the ringer, causing serious damage to each other, and while Storm did some damage, Thrash was able to bounce back for a bit thanks to the help of Thunder. Eventually, however, after multiple big moves from both women, Storm would hit the MILITARY PURGE to win the match.
Evolution d. Ultimatum (3) via Pinfall (HIGHLY EVOLVED) 1.5*
This was a surprisingly one sided fight as Evolution put Ultimatum through the ringer, hitting him with the Inevitability of Evolution as well as the Total Disaster, but after two HIGHLY EVOLVED, Ultimatum was done.
After the match, Evolution lays down the law and hits Ultimatum with multiple big moves after the bell, stomping away before hitting the HIGHLY EVOLVED multiple more times. Doomsayer had to run in and pull Evolution away before anymore damage was done, but Ultimatum will be feeling it for a while.
(Ultimatum is injured for 4 fight cards.)
Back in Thakur’s office, he decides that what Evolution did was uncalled for, and while it was against someone the Gladiators hated, a punishment has to be set.
(Evolution will be suspended for 3 fight cards after the tournament ends.)
Vengeance w/Thunder d. Mayhem Unleashed (4) via Stoppage (Eye Cleaver) 2*
It was a one sided match for the most part with Mayhem Unleashed failing to hit a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Vengeance would take advantage and start going after Mayhem Unleashed’s good eye with the Eye Cleaver, with Mayhem Unleashed almost unable to stop it. Eventually, after hitting the Eye Cleaver three times, the referee decided to call the match off for the safety of Mayhem Unleashed.
Rush & Turmoil (3) w/The Leveler d. Havoc & Rage (5) w/Strafe via Pinfall (ADRENALINE RUSH) 2*
It was a back and forth match for a little while until Turmoil kicked it up a notch against Rage, hitting the TRIPLE SUICIDE and the TOTAL TURMOIL multiple times, causing Rage to get put in a bad spot. As Rush hit the first ADRENALINE RUSH, Strafe was able to make the save, but the second one and Havoc was unable to do the same, giving Rush and Turmoil the win.
Bulldoze d. Alpha Female via Pinfall (BARRAGE) DUD
The injuries proved to be too much as Alpha Female couldn’t fight the big Bulldoze the way she would have liked. Bulldoze eventually hit Alpha Female with a massive slap to the head, sending her down, before Bulldoze hit the BARRAGE to win the match.
After the match, Storm came out and congratulated her partner, but then the two wrestlers stared each other down, aware of the implications of this tournament. The cameras then fade to black.

Spike vs Disaster would be super hard for me to run as they're two of my top 3 favorites.

AWC Reborn Card 4
This show begins with Apex and Malice in the ring, set to begin their semi-finals matchup in the AWC Heavyweight Championship tournament.
Malice d. Apex (1) w/The Dark Menace via Pinfall (lariat out of the corner) .5*
It was a back and forth match despite Malice hitting the FIELDS OF MALICE early. Malice would throw everything at the wall as would Apex, but Apex made the mistake of throwing Malice into the turnbuckle. Malice would come back out of the corner with a massive lariat, taking the big man down for the man.
The next match is the second semifinals match in the AWC Heavyweight Championship tournament, as Vengeance and Evolution make their way to the ring with their respective managers.
Vengeance (6) w/Paralyze d. Evolution (9) w/Doomsayer via Pinfall (roll up from the ropes) 5*
It was an intense back and forth match between both wrestlers, with both of them giving it everything they got. Vengeance would dive to the outside multiple times in the match, slowly wearing down the big man, but Evolution wasn’t easily deterred by the dives, and he would try for his own, only for them not to work as well. Eventually, Vengeance hit the HELTER SKELTER, only for Doomsayer to interfere and be ran out of the area by Vengeance and Paralyze. Evolution fought on, however, and eventually it led to Evolution throwing Vengeance into the ropes. Vengeance would jump over and put Evolution into a sunset flip pin to secure the win.
As things started to get back to normal, the cameras head to a dome like setting with a thunderstorm going on in the background and a familiar face standing in front of it.
“Welcome to the Thunderdome!”
Thunder looks at the camera and smirks.
Thunder: “Tonight, I’m here with a member of the Gladiator Rebellion, and one of the semi finalists in the AWC Tag Team Championship Tournament, Havoc!”
Havoc enters the studio and sits down in the chair.
Thunder: “So, Havoc. You asked for this time, and you seem to have a lot on your mind. What do you want to tell all of the Aethrans in attendance and all of the people watching at home?”
Havoc: “Well Thunder, as much as I have an issue with a lot of people, yourself included, there’s one group of thugs on this roster that need to be dealt with. That group is Gladiator Z. Let me be clear, the Gladiator Z lost their matches against us, but instead of being honorable and taking the losses like true gladiators should, they decided to attack Strafe after her match against Destina. The pure cowardice they showcased is disgusting to me.”
Thunder: "Sounds like you want to fight them again, despite the fact that you have already beaten them. Wouldn’t it be easier to move on?”
Havoc: “Of course not. They sabotaged Alpha Female’s chances at becoming the first ever AWC Women’s Champion, and the only reason they did it was because they lost.”
?: "Oh boo hoo hoo, cry me a river, won’t you!?”
Scar steps into the frame with Thunder and Havoc looking at the big man.
Scar: “You claim that we fight without honor, when need I remind you that your team is full of nothing but traitors to Aethra? We only did what every Aethran on this planet wanted to do, and the fact that you can’t accept that is baffling to me.”
Havoc then stands up and the two of them are almost ready to get into a shouting match when Thunder steps in.
Thunder: “Whoa, whoa, whoa fellas. You are not going to fight in my Thunderdome. If you do, then I’m billing both of you the damages.”
Scar: “That’s fine. Instead of right now, I’ll give you a chance to say your prayers, because on the next card, Havoc, I’m challenging you to a match.”
Havoc: “You’re on.”
Scar then smirks and turns to walk away.
Scar: “Be ready to make your funeral arrangements, Boy Scout.”
Havoc looks at Scar some more before the cameras go back to Thunder.
Thunder: “Well ladies and gentlemen, this has been an exciting episode of the Thunderdome. We’ll see you guys for the next one!”
It’s now time for the AWC Tag Team Championship finals, with the winning team being crowned the first ever AWC Tag Team Champions. Rush and Turmoil make their way to the ring, ready to fight for tag gold and they await their opponents.
Rumble comes out first and after a while, Overkill makes his way to the ring. While he has some exploitable targets (from his injury), he’s still able to fight, and the crowd are looking forward to this match.
Before the match gets underway, the referee ejects The Leveler from the match, making sure that this match is a fair two on two encounter.
AWC Tag Team Championship
Rush & Turmoil (3) d. Rumble & Overkill (3) via Pinfall (Deathjump) 1.5*
Rumble started the match off quickly after taking a few shots from Turmoil, hitting the DECAPITATOR onto Turmoil as well as a Gladiator Piledriver. As Rumble tagged in Overkill to try and put Turmoil away, however, things started to fall apart. Turmoil would hit the TOTAL TURMOIL onto Overkill and then he would tag in Rush to hit a Double Table Breaker. Rush would then keep the momentum going and land a picture perfect Deathjump onto Overkill, and despite Rumble’s best efforts to make the save, Rush would keep Overkill down for the 3 count.
Rush and Turmoil celebrated their win as the referee handed the two of them the AWC Tag Team Championships. Now as the first ever champions, Rush and Turmoil look to accept all challengers for their titles.
It is now time for the AWC Women’s Championship final, as the two finalists look each other down. They may be teammates, but tonight, they are opponents. The bell sounds and the match begins.
AWC Women’s Championship
Storm (2) d. Bulldoze (4) via Pinfall (Moonsault) 3*
Despite being teammates, Storm and Bulldoze did not hold back in the slightest. Storm used her agility and Bulldoze used her power. The two of them fought valiantly, but Storm kept Bulldoze at bay for a long time, hitting the VICTORY LAP on a few occasions as well. Eventually, Storm was able to hit a picture perfect Moonsault to pin Bulldoze for the three.
After the match, Storm celebrated as she was given the AWC Women’s Championship. Bulldoze looked at her teammate and the two of them shook hands. Bulldoze took the AWC Women’s Championship and helped Storm wrap it around her waist, showing that despite being on opposite sides tonight, the two of them are still a force to be reckoned with.
An interviewer appears on stage, and she looks around, nervous, but she gathers her composure as much as she can.
“Greetings everyone. I know all of you are looking forward to the main event, but first, I wish to interview someone who has some connections to one of the participants in the main event. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome at this time, representing the Gladiator Elite, Spike.”
Spike appears on stage, walking up to the interviewer and looking at the cheering fans.
Interviewer: “Spike, I have one question for you. Is there anyone in the AWC that you dislike?”
Spike ponders that question for a moment.
Spike: “Yeah, there is. I hate the Dark Menace. There, I said it. He thinks he can lead a group of champions to the promised land, and yet all I’ve seen him do is enhance these “Gladiators” like Doomsayer putting someone through the Transevolver. I’m not stupid, Menace. Your team is on performance enhancers that are not approved by Aethra, and I bet without those enhancements, your team is nothing. I’m calling out the New Age Gladiators to show their might without enhancements.”
The fans are looking forward to this potential matchup as Siege makes his way to the stage.
Siege: “The Dark Menace is one of the greatest assets to the Aethran race, and you dare say that he’s only there to supply performance enhancers!? The guy is a mastermind, having worked in wrestling for many years. With the strategies we have been taught, I’m going to accept your challenge, and I’m going to destroy you!”
The crowd is excited for this matchup, as Thakur appears on screen.
Thakur: “Whoa, guys, chill out! You two want a match? Well, let’s have one right now. It will be a regular match, but no one will be allowed at ringside!”
The crowd cheers and the two opposing forces go to the ring to have this impromptu match.
Spike (2) d. Siege (3) via Pinfall (MEGA DESTROYER) 2.5*
It was a back and forth match that saw Spike and Siege absolutely destroy each other with Spike hitting the MEGA DESTROYER two times in a row and with Siege hitting the AETHRAN CRIPPLER and a Siege Stunner. Eventually, however, Spike was able to hit a third MEGA DESTROYER to win the match.
As Siege left the ring, Spike was yelling at him, saying “I told you” to him over and over again. Siege eventually had enough and just stormed out, leaving Spike in the ring to celebrate for the time until Vengeance came out. Spike would head to the back as Paralyze would step out and be at Vengeance’s corner. Malice would step out next, setting the stage to crown the first ever AWC Heavyweight Champion.
AWC World Championship
Vengeance (2) w/Paralyze d. Malice (4) via Pinfall (HELTER SKELTER) 3*
In an incredible back and forth match, the two gladiators gave it everything they got, but fans were worried that the match would end via stoppage after Vengeance hit the Eye Cleaver twice in a row. Malice fought on, however, and eventually the brawl went out where Malice dove onto Vengeance with a Tope Suicida. As Malice threw Vengeance back into the ring, Vengeance was eventually able to fight back and go outside himself, landing a springboard Moonsault onto Malice. As Vengeance rolled Malice back into the ring, Vengeance would hit the HELTER SKELTER to secure the win and the championship.
The referee hands Vengeance the AWC Heavyweight Championship and Vengeance raises it over his head. Paralyze puts the championship around the new champion’s waist, and the rest of the Gladiator Elite came out to celebrate. Malice went to the back as he saw an injured Aethran Overmaster just staring at him. Malice left and the Elite celebrated in the ring.
Vengeance was lifted up to the sky by Paralyze with the other gladiators clapping and cheering as the cameras faded to black.

AWC Reborn Card 5
Before the show gets underway, the first ever AWC Heavyweight Champion, Vengeance appears on a talk show featuring Thakur. Before the interview happens, however, the New Age Gladiators appear from behind and attack Vengenace! All five members get in on the beatings as the Dark Menace watches in glee and delight. The attack ends with Siege and Fist hitting the SIEGE & STORM and with Apex hitting the APEX OF GLORY through the table in the talk show room.
(Vengeance is injured for one fight card.)
The New Age Gladiators retreat as the Gladiator Elite make it to the location to check on the champion. They carry him away as the camera heads to the ring for the first match.
Wolf w/Brute d. Crush (2) via Submission (SAVAGE FACE CLAW) 1* SQUASH
Crush tried to go for the Gladiator Piledriver after a few counters from both sides, but Wolf wouldn’t go up easily, hitting the Wolf Skullcrusher twice along with the running clothesline. After that, it took a few more big moves for Wolf to lock in the SAVAGE FACE CLAW and keep it in tight for Crush to tap out.
Thakur appears on the talk show again, this time discussing the action that just transpired, and how if Apex wants action, then he’s got it, against Mayham. The camera heads to the ring as Apex and Mayham step into battle.
Apex d. Mayham (2) via Pinfall (Ballistic Headbutt) 1* SQUASH
After the first few moments of the match, Apex completely destroyed Mayham, even with Apex not even hitting the APEX OF GLORY once, he still dealt a lot of damage to Mayham, eventually finishing Mayham off with a last Ballistic Head Butt.
Thakur appears back in the studio, discussing how Apex could be a potential challenger to Vengeance’s title in the future, but the next match could feature some more goliaths as Disaster takes on Screw.
Before the match gets underway, Screw tries to attack Disaster during his entrance, but Disaster was able to fight back and put Screw through a table, starting the match off hot and heavy.
Disaster (1) d. Screw (6) via Pinfall (Decapitator) 3.5*
It was an intense match between both wrestlers, but Disaster constantly hit the Decapitator on Screw throughout most of it, causing the cleansed outsider some trouble. Eventually, Screw would succumb to the Decapitator.
Thakur is in the studio again when Brute and Massacre sit down in chairs nearby. This time, they talk about the Tag Team Championship tournament and how they are ready to redeem themselves. They then show a skit featuring Crush, which showcases exactly what they plan on doing to the tag team division, giving the guy a painful looking DECAPITATOR before Brute ruffles his hair in front of the camera. Thakur and the original gladiators appear on screen again, this time with Brute and Massacre laughing a bit.
Thakur: “There you have it. Let’s get back to the ring for some more tag team action.”
Malice (3) & Rumble (3) d. Category Five (2) & Torment (2) via Pinfall (FIELDS OF MALICE) 2.5*
It was an intense back and forth match between both teams, with Category Five and Torment showing some amazing teamwork. Malice did save Rumble from a vicious GLADIATOR PILEDRIVER, allowing him the chance to recover and eventually make the tag to Malice, who proceeded to stay aggressive against both Category Five and Torment despite their best efforts to keep him down. The match would end when Malice hit the FIELDS OF MALICE onto Category Five, and while Torment attempted to make the save, both Malice and Rumble fought off Torment and threw him to the outside before hitting the FIELDS OF MALICE again to get the three count.
Thakur appears in the studio again, talking about how the tag team division is heating up, but it could come unraveled quick, reminding the fans that Malice will likely be suspended for his attack on the Aethran Overmaster during the second round of the AWC Heavyweight Championship tournament. But tonight’s not about that, as it’s time for Women’s action featuring Thrash and Bulldoze.
The referee comes out and both women exchange some words before going to their opposite corners.
Thrash w/Thunder d. Bulldoze (2) w/Dark Menace via Pinfall (FEMME FATAL) 1*
The match started off back and forth, but then Thrash got the upper hand with the brainbuster bludgeon. She followed up with three FEMME FATAL back to back to win the match.
After the match, Thunder rolls in and attacks Bulldoze some more with Thrash helping out. The two of them beat down on the big woman and they eventually hit the FEMME FATAL and THE TEMPEST before Apex and Storm came out to check on Bulldoze.
(Bulldoze is injured for 6 fight cards.)
After Thrash and Thunder leave, Bulldoze makes her way to the back with assistance from Apex and Storm, likely indicating a serious injury.
Thakur appears in the studio and announces that there will be no suspensions put in place for the Gladiator Elite’s actions, deeming it to be retaliation from earlier in the night. Thakur then announces that Scar has a few words on his mind.
Scar appears in a locker room with Necro Butcher and Destina, with Scar getting ready for the main event.
Scar: “Havoc, you and I are going to step in that ring tonight, and while you want me more than anything in the world, keep in mind that you won’t have anyone by your side, not even your “girlfriend”, Strafe. Thakur may have the match type chosen in advance, but it won’t matter what he has in store for us, because traitors like you deserve capital punishment, and that punishment, is DEATH, BY AETHRAN!”
The cameras then cut to the studio where the table was rebuilt.
Thakur: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Thakur’s Talk Show. This time, we have the AWC Tag Team Champions, Rush and Turmoil!”
Rush and Turmoil appear, holding their AWC Tag Team Championships as they look at Thakur with respect.
Thakur: “First off, congratulations on becoming the first ever AWC Tag Team Champions, but now since you two are the champs, you two will not have to focus on defending them against a lot of different challengers. What do you two have to say to your next challengers?”
Rush: “Thakur, winning the AWC Tag Team Championships is not an easy feat, considering that we had to go through a heck of a lineup to get to this point. We had to beat Thunder and Paralyze of the Gladiator Elite, Havoc and Rage of the Rebellion, and Overkill and Rumble of the Aethran Supremacy. Now, while that’s a lineup that most teams would die to beat, I’m certain there’s plenty more challengers ready for us. So I say, bring them all on. Let them challenge us, and we’ll show them why we’re the best tag team in the AWC!”
Turmoil: “We’re willing to go to any lengths to defend these championships, including the possibility of putting our bodies on the line! Can any other team be able to say that they’re willing to do the same?”
Thakur: “Thank you Rush and Turmoil, for your time. Now let’s get straight back to the action.”
The Dark Menace makes his way to the ring to give Fist a boost, but then all of a sudden, Spike makes his way to the ring, announcing himself as the manager for the Gladiator Elite. The Dark Menace is angry about this, but Spike shows proof that he is legally allowed to manage a team.
Gladiator Siege (Siege & Fist) w/Dark Menace d. Gladiator Elite (Thunder & Paralyze) via Pinfall (AETHRAN CRIPPLER) DUD
This was not an exciting match as there weren’t even any tags. Siege would keep control after causing a brawl outside between Thunder, Paralyze, Siege, Fist, and Spike. Apex would come running in to even the odds as Siege and Thunder continued fighting in the outside until Siege ended up winning. Siege hit the AETHRAN CRIPPLER and got the three count, with Thunder just a split second too late.
The two teams continued brawling to the back alongside Apex and Spike with the Dark Menace retreating to avoid casualties.
Before the main event, Thakur appears on stage, ready to announce the match type.
Thakur: “Ladies and Gentlemen, these two participants exchanged words on the Thunder Dome last card, and now it’s time for them to settle their differences. Tonight, it will be a HYDRA LUMBERJACK MATCH!"
The crowd goes crazy as every active member of the Gladiator Rebellion and Gladiator Z standing around at ringside before Havoc and Scar enter the ring to start the fight.

The two combatants duke it out and Havoc pulls out the big guns early, hitting the Liberation Lance and the Wreaking Havoc before hitting the TYRANT NIGHTMARE, only for Scar to get help from Destina. Havoc and Scar fought a little more until Scar got a comeback, hitting the DEATH BY AETHRAN, only for Rage to make the save.
Brawls would happen on the outside for a little while until Havoc hits Scar with a big move on the outside. Scar would kick out, but Havoc wasn’t done. The two sides would brawl it out some more until Scar hit the DEATH BY AETHRAN again, only for Mayhem to come in and hit the LEAP OF DOOM from behind onto Scar. As Mayhem was being thrown out by Necro Butcher, Havoc tried to go for the win, only for Necro Butcher to smash him with the chain in his hands, eventually hitting the Decapitator with Chain before sending Havoc back to Scar who hit the DEATH BY AETHRAN one more time to get the three count.
After the match, Scar would celebrate with Necro Butcher and Destina as Rage and Mayhem picked up Havoc and tried to carry him to the back. Havoc eventually found strength in his body again and walked out on his own, but as he walked back, Disaster was seen, looking on from a distance. Scar celebrated in the ring as the cameras faded to black.
