Hello GCF Fans! I am very excited about this weeks show, because I finally have an Impact Raw logo! I will now incorporate pictures in my writing, I hope you guys like it! Be sure to check out my first Pay Per view, Domination, this Sunday! Email me your thoughts, at email@example.com! Well then, let’s get started!
Impact Raw’s opening video ends and the electricity is in the air only a few days from the first ever GCF pay per view, Domination! “Ladies and Gentlemen, we have sold out the Prudential Center here in Newark, New Jersey! I’m Michael Cole, along with my partner Tazz, and I am so ready for Impact Raw tonight!” “Oh man Cole, we have not on, not two, but three main events scheduled for tonight! First, we will determine who will fight for the GCF Tag Team Championship at Domination as Team 3D takes on The Motor City Machineguns!” “That’s gonna be great Tazz, but also tonight, Samoa Joe, Edge, and AJ Styles team up to face Wade Barrett, Kurt Angle and Sheamus!” “Every man in that match are rivals Cole and I am positive that tensions will be running high!” “Well Tazz, our first main event will take place right now, Kaval and Rey Mysterio go one on one with the winner being the final participant in the Ultimate X match at Domination!”
X Division Tournament Semi Finals
Kaval vs. Rey Mysterio
Kaval enters to a mixed reaction from the crowd; the crowd seems split on who will win this dream match here tonight. Kaval leaps into the ring and warms up for this huge match. When Rey Mysterio music hits, the fans go absolutely crazy! Mysterio runs down the ramp, high fiving every fan he can on the way to the ring. Rey slides in the ring, and gets right into his corner. Both men study each other and the bell rings. Rey quickly walks towards Kaval, but Kaval backs up and holds the ropes so Rey can’t go at him. Rey screams at Kaval to man up, and Kaval looks like he is about to respond, but instead he knees Rey in the gut. Kaval pounds on Rey’s back until Rey falls on his gut. Kaval knees Rey’s back some more, before locking in a submission where he drives his knee into Rey’s back and pulls Rey’s arms back. Kaval is focusing all of his attention on the back, as Rey tries to squirm out of it. Rey succeeds by flipping over Kaval and Rey ends up behind Kaval. Rey keeps the arm locked and puts Kaval in the same submission that Kaval just had Rey in! Rey now pulls back on the arms of Kaval and now ironically, Kaval is the one trying to squirm out of it! Kaval reaches his foot out and is able to hook the ropes with his foot and Mysterio is forced to release the hold. Both men stand up and quickly lock up. Kaval is able too push Rey against the ropes and Irish whip him. Rey bounces off the ropes and when he comes back, Rey hurracarranas Kaval! The move sends Kaval through the second rope onto the arena floor! Rey quickly flips over the top rope right onto Kaval! Rey stands and hops over the guard rail while fans pat him on the back and Kaval tries to stand. When Kaval stands, Rey jumps over the guard rail, going for his patented seated senton, but Kaval catches him in a powerbomb position, and falls back for an electric chair, slamming Rey’s face onto the ring apron! The fans boo at Kaval, while Rey lies on the floor holding his face. Kaval tries to gain his composure, and slides back into the ring. The referee is at a five count and Kaval signals for the referee to speed it up. Kaval seems ready to take the count out victory, while Rey is just getting to his feet at an eight count. The referee is about to count to ten, but Rey hops in the ring right before the ten count. Kaval is astonished that Rey was able to beat the count! Kaval walks towards Mysterio, but Mysterio drop toe holds Kaval, causing Kaval to land flat on his face. Mysterio jumps up, runs against the ropes, and dropkicks Kaval right in the face! Rey goes for the pin, One, Two, kick out at two by Kaval. Mysterio quickly shakes it off and throws Kaval into the corner. Mysterio lifts Kaval to the top rope, and Rey head up there as well. Rey stands on the top rope, looking to execute a top rope Hurracarrana, but Kaval causes Rey to lose his balance, and Mysterio falls into a tree of woe. Kaval regains himself on the top rope, before jumping and stomping Rey for a Warriors Way while Rey was in the tree of woe! Rey lands on the back of his head, and Kaval slowly drags Rey away from the ropes, and goes for a pin, One, Two, kick out at two!! Rey somehow kicked out, and Kaval cannot believe it! Kaval pounds his fists down, grabs Rey’s mask and puts him in a suplex position. Kaval lifts Rey up, going for his signature Kaval Krusher (Fisherman Driver), but Rey reverses with an Arm Drag that sends Kaval right onto the second rope! Rey runs against the ropes and *BAM* 619! The 619 sends Kaval on his back in the middle of the ring, and Rey jumps off the top rope for a splash! Rey has the pin, One, Two, and Three!!!
Winner- Rey Mysterio!!
Rey celebrates in the ring while Kaval lies on the mat holding his gut. “There you have it Cole. At Domination, it will be Homicide vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Dolph Ziggler in an Ultimate X match for the X Division Championship!” “A very impressive showing by both men Tazz, and Rey certainly earned the win.” “It’s going to be awesome at Domination Cole, but right now, we have Todd Grisham standing by for an interview.”
“Ladies and Gentlemen, my guest at this time, Wade Barrett. Wade what are your thoughts on this Sundays Number One Contenders Fatal Four Way match?” “Todd, I warned everyone that I would be a force to be reckoned with in GCF. I took out Jay Lethal. I took out the Viper, Randy Orton. I destroyed a multiple time World Champion, because he was threatened by me. Randy Orton is a shell of his former self, and I took advantage. I am the future of this business, and I took out one of the top guys here. At Domination, I will prove why I am the future, and that Randy Orton and the other competitors in the Fatal Four Way, are the past.” Wade walks away with a serious look on his face. “Thanks for your time Wade.”
“Wade seems pretty confident about his chances, Tazz.” “Why not, Cole? He has been on a roll lately and he has a reason to be confident.” Mark Henry’s music hits and he are ready for our next match.
Mark Henry vs. R-Truth
Henry walks down to the ring with an angry snarl on his face. The fans show their hatred towards Henry, but he is too angry to care. Truth runs out singing his entrance theme as always, and the fans sing along. Truth is trying to rebound from his loss to Dashing Cody Rhodes a few weeks ago, but he has to get through an angry beast in Henry. Truth dances into the ring, and shouts what’s up to the Newark fans. He puts the mic down, and the bell rings, but when Truth looks up from putting the mic down, he is greeted by Henry running full force at him! Henry splashes Truth in the corner, and knees Truth in the gut a few times before backing up. Truth falls to one knee, but Henry lifts him up and locks him in a bear hug. Truth flaps his arms around to try to escape, but Henry isn’t letting Truth go anywhere. Henry walks towards the middle of the ring, and keeps the hold in tight. Truth elbows Henry trying to escape and doesn’t stop the elbows. Henry lets go of the hold and truth hops away from him. Truth dropkicks Henry, and it knocks him into the ropes. Truth runs back at Henry, but Henry throws Truth over the ropes onto the floor! Henry holds his head and regains himself, before reaching over the ropes and grabbing Truths head, and pulling him into onto the ring apron! Henry tries to pull Truth back into the ring, but Truth holds onto the ropes. Henry goes for a punch, but Truth catches his arm, and drops it across the ropes. Henry backs away from the ropes, stunned, and Truth heads to the top rope. Truth dives and hits a cross body on the big man! Truth has the pin, One, Two; Henry throws Truth off of him before the three count. Henry quickly gets to his feet, as does Truth. Truth runs back at Henry, but Henry catches him and slams him down for the Worlds Strongest Slam out of no where! Henry pins Truth, One, Two, and Three.
Winner- Mark Henry
Henry screams in satisfaction, but it doesn’t look like he is done. Henry stomps on Truth some more before tossing him to the outside. Henry slowly walks out of the ring, and gets in front of the fallen Truth. Henry rips off the protective padding on the outside and picks Truth up. Henry looks like he is getting ready to hit the Worlds Largest Slam on the cement! Right before Henry slams him down, Tyler Black runs down the ramp. Henry notices, drops Truth down and runs at Black. An all out brawl ensues between Henry and Black with Black holding his own. Referees and Security run down the ramp to separate the two. Henry and Black try to break free, and the crowd chants Let them fight! Black breaks free and jumps over security onto Henry. Security hops back on Black and are separated. Security pulls Black to the back, while Henry tries to break free from the hold of security. “This feud is getting heated Cole. Both men want to rip the others head off!” “Well bravo to Tyler for helping Truth before Henry could hurt him some more.” “I don’t think Black really cares about Truth, I think Black just wants some of Henry.”
The camera pans to the back where we see Jeff Jarrett and Eric Bischoff walking down the hall arguing. “Hang on Eric, I’m on the phone.” “Jeff, who could you possibly be on the phone with?” “If you must know Eric, I’m trying to get a hold of Matt Morgan. I haven’t seem him in a while, and he’s our champion!” Eric grabs Jeff’s cell phone and closes it. “I gave Matt a break until after Domination, Jeff. I think he deserved a little vacation.” “You did what?! We are co-gm’s, you need to tell me things?!” “Listen Jeff; forget that, I need to talk to you. Our match at Domination is coming up, but I am willing to make you a deal. If you surrender that match and make me full general manager again, I will give you the Intercontinental Championship. What do you say?” Jarrett still has an angry look on his face after hearing the news about Jarrett. “No Eric, I won’t accept that offer. In fact, since you didn’t talk to me about the Morgan decision, I won’t talk to you about this, I’ll just tell you. Our match at Domination will be No Holds Barred.” Jeff’s angry face turns into a smile and he walks down the hall while Eric stands there in shock.
“Haha, looks like Jeff Jarrett had the last laugh Tazz.” “This isn’t fair Cole! Eric Bischoff is not a trained competitor, but Jarrett is a multi time World Champion!” “Whatever Tazz, right now we get to see four of the best competitors compete with a shot at the GCF Tag Team Titles on the line. Team 3D vs. The Motor City Machine Guns is up next!”
GCF Tag Team Tournament Semi Finals
Motor City Machine Guns vs. Team 3D
The Guns run out to a huge applause from the crowd. The Guns look ready to go as they are already in the ring. The Guns motivate each other, until Team 3D walk out.

Both men quickly stand, but Sabin quickly connects with a snap suplex on Devon. Sabin leaps up to the top rope, and dives down again with a frog splash.

Devon rolls out of the ring holding his chin. The Guns pose to the crowd, and the fans show their love. Break down the walls!

The Guns look ready for a fight, but from behind Christian slides in the ring! Christian boot Sabin the back of the head and Sabin falls to the ground.

Christian and Jericho leave the ring, shake hands and talk while walking up the ramp.
The camera goes back to the commentary table where Tazz has a smile on his face and Michael Cole has a concerned look on his face. “What’s wrong Cole? Looks like you just saw a ghost.” “What do you mean what’s wrong?! The Guns were just attacked for no reason by Jericho and Christian!” “Oh come on Cole. Christian and Jericho wanted to show The Guns that they have the ability to beat them and they just proved it.” Oh Radio tell me everything you know.
The much more aggressive Ryder walks down the ramp. The fans scream their hatred at Ryder in the form of boos. The Long Island Loudmouth walks up the steps and into the ring. Ryder taunts to the fans, and the boos get even louder. Finlay’s music comes on and the fans give the Irishman a great reaction. The fans know that when Finlay is around, Hornswoggle is near. Finlay slides into the ring and wastes no time in running at Ryder. Finlay really does love to fight as he kicks and punches Ryder in the corner.

“What a win for Ryder, Cole! Finlay tried to cheat, but Zack turned that around by smacking Finlay with his own shillelagh!” “Zack has definitley placed himself right in the IC Title picture, Tazz. Ladies and Gentlemen, this Sunday is the first ever pay per view.” “I have some huge news Cole. Jeff Jarrett and Eric Bischoff have decided that at Domination, Tyler Black and Mark Henry, will face off one on one in a grudge match!” “That is some huge news, Tazz. Those two guys want to tear eachother’s head off, and they get the chance at Domination.” We go to the back where we see Carlito walking to his car in the parking lot. Todd Grisham is chasing after him and gets his attention, “Carlito, are you still planning on making an open challenge at Domination?” “How many times do I have to say this, Todd. Yes, I’m opening an open challenge. Why? Because…….Thats cool.” Carlito smugly walks away.
