RAVEN TAKES USWF BELT FROM MAYHEM
FORMER CHAMPION HAS A SURPRISE VISITOR
In December 2113, USWF Heavyweight Champion Mayhem attacked and injured Raven in the locker room area at the Dione Saturndome after Raven had defeated him in a non-title match. USWF Commissioner Grogan suspended Mayhem for the first six weeks of 2114 because of the incident. Raven, who has yet to lose a match in 2114, made very clear on numerous occasions that he wanted a title match with the Aethran star as soon as Mayhem was reinstated.
On February 20, Raven finally had his wish granted and got his opportunity for revenge. Mayhem made his return to the USWF ring on a card at the Gemenid Grand Grotto, and Grogan ordered a title match between the champion and the former W.A.R. star in the main event.
The title contest was as violent and intense as one would expect from the two long-tme enemies with a championship on the line. Through nearly twenty minutes, the combatants threw everything they had at each other, both risking disqualification numerous times to inflict more damage. Mayhem had his challenger down and stunned at one point but missed his "Leap of Doom" finisher, and the match continued until both men were bloody and spent. Finally, after one of many melees on the arena floor, Raven connected with a crucifix power bomb and pinned the champion to claim the USWF Heavyweight belt for the fifth time.
As Raven left the ring, Mayhem called for a microphone. "You'll regret this, Raven!" the Aethran shouted. "We're not done. I'll destroy you next time. You better be watching your back. I laid you out before, and I can do it again."
"You'll do nothing to anyone. You're through," came an unexpected answer from the backstage area. As the fans screamed, Aethran Minister of War Spike stepped out to the top of the ramp. "You lost your belt, and that title was the last thing that justified letting you keep wrestling. Now you're coming back to Aethra to answer for your crimes."
"What crimes?" Mayhem spat. "You got nothing to accuse me of."
"Oh, I have plenty," Spike responded. "We have evidence that ties you to Vengeance and his murder of Massacre. The high command wants to talk to you. Now, we're leaving. I am ordering you to come with me."
With a howl, Mayhem dove out of the ring and into the crowd, running toward the nearest exit. Spike simply smiled. "He won't get far," he said. "I didn't expect him to go willingly. The building is surrounded. Commissioner Grogan, you can take this as Mayhem's resignation. He won't be coming back to your federation . . . or any other."
ANOTHER ENEMY FOR DEATH KNIGHT II
Since his arrival at the side of his manager Death Knight in late 2113, Death Knight II has been focused on tormenting Exo-King and Jack of Diamonds. However, he has recently engaged in a pair of outstanding matches with Lance At-Las. Each competitor has won one match, and both have expressed their intention of continuing their newfound rivalry.
"I'm not in this to defend Exo-King," Lance explained. "I don't agree with a lot of the things he's done. But I do consider Jack of Diamonds to be a friend, and I never had much use for Death Knight. I've enjoyed pounding on the new Death Knight, and I don't think we've settled anything yet in the matches we've had so far. So I'm ready any time he wants to go at it again"
"Lance At-las means nothing to us," Death Knight stated on behalf of his protégé. "We are focused on Exo-King. But if At-las wants to fight, we are very willing. He's another of the group that I owe payback to from the old GWF days. We will crush him just as we will crush the King and his men. Death Knight II is unstoppable, and we will run all of them out of this federation."
OTHER USWF NOTESThe newly formed tag team of Dark Justice and Splatter started the year very well, winning their first three matches before Splatter was injured and put on the shelf by the Mace and the Pekhota. The lunatic is expected to miss as much as two months of action. In his absence, Dark Justice has turned his attention to singles matches and has also indicated a change in his image.
"No more Dark Justice," the long-time superstar stated. "The 'dark' part was Krakan's idea, and I've held on to it too long. From now on, just call me Justice again, like when I started. I'm not the same person I was back then, but I'm not the guy who worked for Krakan either. I'm at a strange point in my career. I never thought I'd be teaming with Splatter again, but no one seems to want either of us, so we're better off together. And I have no problem teaming up with Raven again after so many years. So the three of us are just going to do our own thing and watch each other's backs, and we'll let things happen however they play out."
(Note: Instead of the last Dark Justice card, I am now using an updated version of Justice created by Christian Keller, Roger Pratcher Jr., and Jim Karantonis as part of their bootleg tag team "American Justice.")
USWF Tag Team Champions Blackout (Charon and Scorpio) suffered a blow when Scorpio was injured in a brawl after a successful defense against the Troubleshooters. The Troubleshooters and Holocaust were suspended for the incident, but Scorpio was expected to miss at least two months of action. Rather than vacating the titles, Commissioner Grogan agreed that Blackout's Star Defender teammate Lance At-Las could substitute and team with Charon to defend the titles.
Newcomer Thayne has won five of his first six matches, with the lone loss coming to his arch-rival Dar Gova in their first one-on-one match.
