Flamo vs Law and Order
Two former IC Champions met in Flamo and LAO in a match which would see A power house against technical skill. Flamo had a lot to prove this week many critics had doubted why the Irish wonder be so firmly placed in a Main Event as he had missed much time due to Easy's pregnancy, tonight's performance would have some bearing on Flamo's future. LAO started off hitting Flamo with a right hand, but LAO was quickly shown that this was a wrestling ring catching a second punch, Flamo flicked him to the mat and nailed a quick leg drop. Flamo pulled LAO to his feet and hit a massive clothesline. However LAO is a resilient man and countered with a few rights and lefts at electric pace backing Flamo into a corner he charged Flamo with a big splash. LAO then put Flamo on the top turnbuckle and went for a superplex, but he isn't quite schooled in the art of technical moves and was pushed off by Flamo who went for a double axe handle, LAO caught him and nailed a belly to belly suplex and got a near fall. LAO got Flamo to his feet and nailed a DDT and another quick leg drop, he went for a series of submission moves, but failed to attach any properly and Flamo fought his way out. Flamo hit a few big elbows to the ribs and a quick snap suplex, he went for his finisher, but LAO blocked it and nailed a massive fireman's carry a cover again a near fall. This was too much for the Firm Court and the Management sent two of his stooges Casa Nova and Sly Fox to ringside they charged Flamo with rights and lefts, the ref called for the DQ, but Flamo caught them in a double ddt to a massive roar from the crowd. Flamo got to his feet with the Operators now out, Flamo scored a big suplex and went for the 'irish wonder' ouy of nowhere English Invader appeared on the ramp he had a microphone and was carrying what appeared to be a baby!
'When the cradle rocks the baby will fall and down will go Easy, Flamo and all!'
He tossed the baby off the ramp to the floor and began to urinate on it! Flamo was incensed he charged Invader the two men traded punches on the ramp the crowd were loving it, then Yankee appeared he grabbed a microphone and shouted.
'You sick puppy Invader you man are in the BIGGEST match of your career on March 11th, no titles involved, but you got Damned Yankee in the hell in a cell sadistic style! Flamo man lets take it easy this puppy ain't got nowhere to run at Highlight Night!'
As Yankee spoke Tremere appeared from the back and cracked a spear head across Yankee it was a sharp one ripping him open Tremere went for Flamo as well, but from nowhere, Naldo ran from the back and hit the devastating 'power of naldo' on him! Naldo took the microphone,
'Tremere you just got a warning of whats to come....power....MADE FLESH!'
The crowd was electric the second half of the Main Event was starting to take shape.
Winner by DQ: Flamo
After a good win for Flamo the T.F.W.F. cuts to the backstage area were the Management arrives in a limo with the Earl of Cleveland the crowd boo as he is shown through to his office were him and Earl take seats, Earl looks concerned.
'Brother dear I have to say I am rather concerned about a few things lately, I mean what is going on with Killboy, why is he still in charge.'
'He is NOT in charge and NEITHER are YOU! I have always been in charge, Killboy just realises that the millions of dollars I put in his bank account is worth backing me up for, he gets to book his matches, I get to book mine through him and we are making a hell of a lot of money.'
''True brother, but I am worried about the Hardcore Haven, I mean they are just damn crazy, I mean with the four corners, sure they are loud obnoxious degenerates, but at least they get the job done, I am not sure about the Haven though.'
'See Earl, the reason you have been under me is that you won't take risks, X and Peacemaker are extreme hardcore youngsters and a legend like Tremere alongside, please look I want them here with us, their job is simple take out who we say when we say and now we are saying Phenom, Misery and Torch, but especially Phenom.'
'Ok, but what about Hawk aren't you risking him in the Main Event, I mean, Pimp In and Fallen Angel are tow of the best in the game and they both hate him.'
'No, Pimp In and Angel HATE each other more than either hate Hawk and at Highlight Night 2001, Hawk will take full advantage of this, I am not booking any old match, I am possibly booking the greatest rivalry title match since Dependence Day I! Earl what you got to realise is I hate the REVOLUTION and all of them, but at the same time, boy oh boy, do they sell tickets and at the end of the day thats what I want money lots of it and we got our boys working hard for their cash by simply keeping them in line, its what I call beautiful!'
The camera fades on the Management lighting a cigar and laughing.
Torch vs Tremere
During the months this rivalry has brewed quite a lot on and off the wrestling calendar until both wrestlers decided to meet in a normal match way! No niceties here, it was quite obvious Tremere was looking for revenge on Torch and Torch was looking to kick the crap out off Tremere it would be a true test of wrestling skill. Could either resist Hardcore antics? Tremere started off berating Torch, Torch just launched himself at Tremere and overpowered him, too much trash talking in the T.F.W.F and not enough training showed as he was taken to school by Torch's technical ability. But it was a half-hearted suplex by Torch which allowed the reversal for Tremere into a small package, a near fall to Tremere but Torch was able to kick out. A brief exchange of small body moves, punches and takedowns took place, not really much for the eyes but still a grueling match. Torch went on the offensive again with a few rights and lefts and a big slam, but a missed elbow drop and Tremere had him on the mat for some submission moves, it was good to see both men could do more than just take shots with weapons again showing why they are rated so highly. Tremere put Torch in the corner and scored with a superplex and tossed him to the outside, you could see that Tremere wanted Torch to take a few chair shots and grabbed a chair the ref warned him so he dropped it and proceeded to slam him onto the steel steps. Torch was in pain, but was able to reverse Tremere's whip onto a table and nailed a slam on it. Both men were taking it to the maximum without using any illegal objects. Tremere and Torch took it back in the ring where Tremere hit a sunset flip! But didn't get the pin. Torch countered with a ddt and a near fall, both men were full of energy and looking for more. Tremere and Torch exchanged more punchs, Tremere naild a titl a whirl backbreaker, Torch countered with a dragon screw and a leg lock. A Tremere neckbreaker, was followed by a Torch belly to back suplex it was a great match. However it was obvious that neither could control their hardcore emotions for too long especially when X appeared the current European Champion. He had Tremere's bag of tricks with him and seized the opportunity to toss Tremere a barbwire kendo stick, Tremere sung it, but Torch ducked and grabbed X's belt and swung that, Tremere ducked the referee couldn't call a DQ on either one of the wrestlers, but he could call a DQ when X got in the ring and slammed a chainsaw blade into Torch's back, he signalled backstage were Peacemaker raced down they went through Tremeres bag of tricks nailing Torch with all sorts the referee calling for the DQ, The Haven went over the top sadistically making Torch pay. They stood celebrating with their arms high as a battered and bloody Torch lay near them.
Winner by DQ: Torch
Both men had proved how well they could wrestle even when hardcore isn't involved the T.F.W.F. cameras went backstage to a locker room thats says Hellbound, inside is Ozaki still injured, but hoping to make his return next week to action at Highlight Night. There is a knock at the door its Charlie, Ozaki looks suspicious.
'Look I came here for one reason only Ozaki first off I know you won't hit a lady.'
Ozaki looks at her
'What about a tramp!'
Charlie flicks her hair and huffs.
'Listen here, Origami, I am just here to warn you that Fallen Angel and Pimp In have their problems, but tonight is going to be a clean match, if you or any of your cronies interfer and damage our Big Pimp Daddy, there will be hell to pay!'
Ozaki goes to slam the door in Charlie's face when Aleblad, Radcliffe and the Allies attack Ozaki and Millennium both in the locker room. With the Asylum warming up else were, Angel not arriving yet and Grunt in hospital the Hellbound faithful was out numbered and badly beaten.
Insane Asylum vs Invader/Hawk
The second to final match was Invader and Hawk tagging against the Asylum Pez was backstage conducting an interview with the Heavyweight Champion.
The Asylum wasted no time coming to the ring and went straight for Invader who had waited around. After the excitement of the opening moments the fans settled down to the match. The four men battled down the ramp and around the ring. Invader got the advantage by landing a spinning heel kick on Creeper and then running the man into the steel steps. With Creeper stunned Hawk and Invader took Apocalypse into the ring and began to work him over the double team moves, a double back drop and a double leg drop had the crowd cheering. By this time Creeper had come round and charged Hawk from behind, he took him down with a clothesline and then one for Invader as well! The ref was finally able to get the four men apart as Invader and Creeper paired off in the ring. Creeper took control with a big rights and lefts, they pounded Invader into the corner, a back elbow and then a kick to the stomach dropped Invader to his knees. Invader signaled to the crowd and took a few steps back and charged Creeper hitting him square in the face with both knees! He picked the dazed man up and lifted him high in the air for a suplex followed by a few kicks to the head and body. Invader went for the first pin but Apocalypse broke it up with a boot to the head. Hawk grabbed the distracted Creeper from behind and landed a perfect neckbreaker. This gave Invader some time and he tagged Hawk in legally. Apocalypse came in and began to work over Hawk's legs, slamming his knees into the mat, kicks and punches to his knees had the champ in trouble. Hawk showed his technical ability and locked in a single leg grapevine but Apocalypse struggled to the corner and tagged in Creeper. He leaped over the ropes and hit the backing away Hawk with a headscissors take down. He climbed to the second rope and caught the staggered Hawk with a tornado DDT. He picked the champ up and put on a sleeper hold but dropped to the mat with a sleeper/neckbreaker combination! Creeper climbed the ropes and landed a leg drop from the top rope and went for the pin but somehow Hawk kicked out just before the three! Invader and Apocalypse had been watching for long enough and both men charged into the ring! They traded big punches as the ref tried to split the two men apart. Hawk rolled out the ring as Creeper joined the attack on Invader they had him backed in the corner as Hawk picked up the ring bell and charged Apocalypse from behind at the last second he ducked as Creeper pulled Invader in front of the charging Hawk he hit his partner straight in the head with the bell busting him wide open! The crowd noise level increased as the blood flowed! Hawk was DDT into the mat by Creeper as Apocalypse picked up the bleeding Invader and hit him with with the 'last ride to hell' for the 1, 2, 3! The Insane Asylum had won, they celebrated by hitting Hawk with a spiked piledriver that left Invader lying next to his partner in the centre of the ring.

Fallen Angel vs AOD (handicap match referred by Pimp In)
The Main Event of the week would see Angel attempting to get revenge on AOD, but the match had a twist! Pimp In was set to referee it! Pimp In dressed in referee attire made his way to ringside and got in the ring he asked the crowd 'why they should buy it' they responded with electric enthusiasm. Angel coming down the ring to the new T.F.W.F. music cd 'Embrace the Darkness' as he entered the ring he and Pimp In stared each other down and looked ready to go at it. AOD's music came over the speakers the crowd went crazy with some of the biggest heat of the night and guess who was accompanying them to the ring, yep the T.F.W.F. Heavyweight Champion Night Hawk, this was going to get really physical and very quickly. Hawk berated both Pimp In and Angel in the ring, but Pimp In ordered him back to the locker room.
'Hawk these stripes here make me the referee material and as the referee I tell you now to get your curb crawling ass back to the locker room!'
As Pimp In spoke AOD jumped Angel who was caught up in the action and pounded lefts and rights into him. Hawk returned to the ring as Pimp In was caught up in the action. Carnage slammed him into the corner and nailed a drop leg as Vagan choked him on the outside. Being a handicap match both of AOD were legally in the ring at the same time and used full advantage at the beginning a small smile seemed to be on Pimp In's lips. Hawk was enjoying it he jumped around excitedly on the outside he had been beaten badly by the Asylum, but this was pure rush he was running on. Carnage hit a massive stalling suplex, Vagan followed with a running powerslam it appeared to be torcher in the ring. Vagan hit a big suplex, Carnage nailed a powerbomb, Scoop screaming at ringside of the injustice that was happening, Snoop claimed the referee couldn't control these monsters. Vagn hit a few clotheslines and Carnage hit a neckbreaker they went for the 'black out', but Angel reversed the irish whip unknown to Carnage on the rebound he lifted Vagan high in the air, Carnage nailed him with the 'blackout' carrying the momentum from his own bounce of the ropes, even the monster which is Carnage couldn't believe what he'd done and the crowd went crazy, Carnage went for a right hand, Angel blocked it and countered with three quick jabs and a belly to belly suplex the crowd were on their feet the rafters shaking under the noise. Hawk was upset on the apron he shouted for justice and climbed on the apron, Pimp In turned around and smashed a right hand in Hawk's face and he fell through a table on the outside, the other three corners ran from the backstage area with the Hardcore Haven in hot pursuit they were going to get Angel and Pimp In from nowhere came Damned Yankee with a chair! He started swatting Firm-Court members if they were flies slamming chair shots into Tremere's, X's and Invader's faces, the rest backed away, but Da gremlin walked into a 'power of naldo' on the ramp showing him hurtling off the ramp to the ground, Peacemaker was met by a mighty Phenom clothesline the Four Corners and Hardcore Haven had been dispanded. Back in the ring Angel was still on the offensive with rights and lefts into Carnage's body and a piledriver, but he couldn't keep his shoulders down! Vagan recovered and got to his feet he grabbed Angel pulled him to his feet and hoisted him on his shoulders they were going to try a flying clothesline from the top rope, Carnage mounted the turnbuckle, but looked unsteady, Angel battled free of Vagan's grasp as Carange jumped Angel caught him in mid air in a front face lock and delivered a ddt, the 'angel death drop'!!! He drop kicked Vagn out of the ring onto Hawk and covered Carnage for the three! Angel had won, but his attention quickly turned to the referee, him and Pimp In had their stare down, Pimp In looked to turn his back on Angel and Angel like wise, simultaneously they slammed right hands to each others face and went full blow at it. Referees pulled them apart with Hawk on the outside battered and bloody....Next week would be a war!
Winner by pinfall: Fallen Angel
