Chaos flipped over the top rope, he walked up to Young and started talking some trash. Young was having none of it and smacked Chaos around the head. Chaos quickly hit a pile driver followed by a drop kick. Invader held his head in his hands as he watched Young take an early beating. Young then dodged a clothesline and jumped up onto Chaos' back hitting an impressive crucifix pin. The first of the match was a close one mainly because of the surprise. Chaos fought back with a slam and a power bomb. He climbed the turn buckle for the first of many high flying moves. He waited for Young to stand. As he did Chaos hit a hurricanrana, Chaos then stood up and flipped over to land a summersault splash from standing still. Chaos then picked up Young and threw him into the corner. Chaos ran to the other side and charged at Young, he jumped up on the top rope and hit a 360 kick onto Young's jaw. The crowd cheered as their hero took control. However Young was fighting back, he hit a back drop and then a back braker onto the challenger. Young then climbed the turn buckle and hit a great flying elbow drop, the crowd also erupted for this move not fort Young, but for the execution of a man back on the rise. Young then put Chaos in a Canadian Cross face but Chaos reversed it into a submission move of his own! Invader saw the trouble as Young was about to tap out, He jumped up to the ring apron and distracted the ref!
Scoop- He's tapping.
Snoop- So am I
Scoop- Shut up!
Young was tapping out but the ref didn't see it. Chaos broke the hold and turned around, Young quickly got up and hit a full nelson suplex with a bridge pin! The ref made the count as Invader jumped down and applauded Young. Young bounced Chaos into the corner and placed him onto the top of the turnbuckle. He then hit an superplex onto Chaos!
Scoop- Young is getting more and more technically sound as the days go on.
Snoop- I tell you, people say Tremere made Hardcore famous, Tiger Young is bringing the European title to the level of greatness.
Winner via pinfall and STILL European Champion: Tiger Young
The action cuts backstage Angel is seen smashing down locker room doors, he smashes down Pimp In's and the two meet eye to eye.
Angel- Look bitch you don't want to get in my face I am after Hawk and thats it.
Pimp In- Well he don't appear to be in here, so you kid came looking in the wrong place.
Angel- Maybe I didn't.
Pimp In- I'd love to stay and talk pal, but a girl is waiting for me to talk to her.
Missy all of a sudden walks in the locker room.
Missy- Oh I am sorry I must have came in the wrong place.
Pimp In- Sorry darling I'll make you come in the right place next time!
The action goes back to the ringside area fading on Angel being pulled out by Ozaki and Traxs Pimp In has a sly look on his face as he looks over a letter with a big heart on the bottom!
English Invader (c) vs Tremere
Scoop- Well Angel seems to have lost the plot.
Snoop- You got Pimp In in Angel's face and what was Missy doing there, I tell you Pimp In is fucking Killboy's niece.
Scoop- Be serious, she is in love with Torch, its obvious its another Pimp In mind game an nobody plays them better than him.
Snoop- Except maybe the Management.
Scoop- All that aside we got Tremere challenging English Invader for the Intercontinental title tonight.
As the lights dimmed the crowd stood up and blasting over the speakers was the music from a the challenger Tremere. Invader then walked out in front of the T.F.W.F fans with a look of complete concentration over his face to the music of 'Four Play'. Invader knowing full well last time they met, Tremere had Invader's number. The two men scouted each other around the ring for a while before locking up. Invader the more technically sound took advantage with a quick side headlock and taking Tremere down to the mat, but Tremere countered with headscissors roll up pin and a near fall. Both men got to their feet, Invader came off the ropes, but Tremere leap frogged him and scored a monkey flip on the rebound. Invader came to the outside holding his back he walked around the ring, 'Four Play' hit the speakers again. Tremere turned around to see the European Champion Tiger Young standing on the ramp, Invader started to applauder Young as he walked to ringside.
Scoop- I guess the cavalry is coming.
Snoop- Hey you don't complain when Angel and Hawk have Naldo as their security guard.
Young got a chair and headset and joined Scoop and Snoop at ringside.
Young- Shut up Scoop, God Snoop it must really suck having to carry this loser in the commentary position. I know what you want to know why am I here, well in case you didn't realize I face the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time on June 23rd 2001 and I also face that boob Tremere so I am here on a scouting mission. Snoop would you like me to take over the colour position and you the rest of the commentary?
Snoop- I'd be honored.
Young proceeds to shove Scoop out of the way and Snoop takes up a commentary position. Back in the ring, Tremere is still waiting for Invader to get in, he keeps sliding in to break the count. Invader eventually slides in and Tremere catches his leg, Tremere pulls him into a sling shot position and sends the champion crashing into the ringpost Tremere scores a belly to belly on the rebound and a near fall. He gets Invader to his feet and hits a ddt, Invader stands up and then falls over again, Tremere attaches a sideheadlock and works in a crank of the neck. Tremere gets Invader to his feet and chops him into the corner scoring a superplex off the top ropes and a 2 count.
Snoop- This is a disgrace, I am sure that was an illegal chop.
Tiger- I wouldn't surprise me Snoop, Tremere is illegal. He shouldn't be allowed to wrestle here.
Tremere gets Invader to his kness, but Invader nails a low blow and attaches an eastern stretch. After a minute of pain, Invader releases the hold and scores a german suplex and a 2 count. He gets Tremere to his feet and hits an axe kick of a run of the ropes and another 2 count. Invader nails a side suplex and goes for a figure four, but Tremere is near the ropes and easily grabs one to release the hold. Tremere and Invader get on thier feet and exchange rights and lefts quickly, but Invader takes advantage again getting in two quick jabs he nails a samoan drop and scores a near fall. With Tremere back on the mat, Invader starts to work the leg stomping it into the ground and tweaking the muscles, it starts to take its toll on Tremere.
Snoop- Tiger if I have never see a better technical wrestler in this sport than Invader.
Tiger- I wouldn't doubt his credentials, the 'scum of Britannia' is just that, though he might be second technically to me, after all Snoop I am the original 'corporate champion'.
Invader continues to crank Tremere's leg scoring a second figure-four leg lock, Tremere this time has no ropes nearby and is in agony. Young and Snoop jump from their seats to cheer English Invader on who is looking at them and clapping his hands. Tremere starts to fight the hold trying to turn Invader on his front the only counter for the figure four is a modified indian death lock. Tremere starts to reverse the hold, Invader a quick thinker quickly releases it so not to be countered, He goes back to tweaking the leg and slamming it into the mat. Invader gets Tremere to his feet, but Tremere falls with the pain in his leg. Invader slams his elbow into the side of Tremere's leg over and over to add more pain in this seemingly epic contest. Invader went for a third figure four, but this time Tremere countered with a small package! A near fall, Invader jumps to his feet and Tremere nails a chop block taking him down to the mat were the challenger starts to choke the life out of Invader. Young fearing the worst drops the headset and starts to encourage Invader to fight back. Tremere got to his feet or foot and hopped scoring a ddt and a near fall. Young mounted the apron in a bid to buy Invader some time, Tremere raced over and clotheslined him into the steel railings on the outside to a huge crowd pop.

The crowd couldn't believe it! Invader got to his feet very slowly he backed Tremere into a corner and went of r a big irish whip into the rope, but Tremere reversed it and caught Invader in a second 'pure evil' this time the ref counted the three, Tremere had beaten Invader for the Intercontinental title.
Scoop- Tremere has regained the Intercontinental title.
Snoop- Not this way...not this way, I am going to call lawyers, bankers and executioners and we will show them the tape of this match and the injustice with which he won.
Scoop- Do you realise that Rezerection have the Heavyweight and Intercontinental titles now...I think maybe Young and Torch are next on their hit list.

'The Commandment' plays over the speakers form the T.F.W.F. Music album, Samson all 600 pounds of power walks onto the ramp he looks into the crowd who cheer his name as he walks down ready for action. Their is a delayed hush around the arena as 'Fall from Grace' blasts and the pyros go off, Angel with Naldo following walks out ontpo the stage. He surveys the action and crowd some signs in the crowd say 'Hawk is the MASTER' Angel walks over to the guy holding thi sign and rips it out of his hand and carries on up the aisle. Naldo takes his posiytion at ringside.
Scoop- You know a lot of questions have been going through my mind about Hawk and Angel, I mean who is really to blame for their resentment.
Snoop- I think they are on equal parring, I mean Hawk the ungrateful son of a bitch did a hell of a screw job at Ice Storm 2k, yet Angel did a hell of a screw job with Hawk's family...hahaha. I guess its what you value more important, money or family. I say money.
Scoop- You would.
Angel and Samson started to stae each other down. There had been rumours of a lot of backstage tension between these two superstars which had been overshadowed by Hawk and Angel and Samson's experimental commentary job. A bit of trash talking started with Samson pushing Angel, Angel came back with a push. Samson pushed Angel into the corner and went for a charge, but Angel moved and countered with a few fierce right hands and a foot choke. Samson shrugged him off and caught him in a belly to belly suplex scoring big time and then dropping a leg to the throat of Angel. Samson nailed a big back suplex and got a one count. Samson got Angel to his feet and attached a bearhug, but Angel countered with a eye rake and a big clothesline rocking the big man, a second had Samson up against the rope, Angel delivered a boot to the face and sent Samson to the outside and crashing into the steel railings.
Scoop- A battle of two powerhouses.
Snoop- Yes indeed.
Angel then propels himself with the rope onto Samson on the outside, afterwards ramming the big man's head and face into the steel steps and ringpost. Angel rolls Samson back in the ring, but only gets 2 on the count. Angel nails a few thrusts to the throat as he backs Samson back into the corner he goes for a foot choke, but Samson grabs hois leg and takes him down with an STO. Samson drop s big leg drop and a elbow smash to the gut, but gets no joy, he then scores a gut wrench suplex on an irish whip, but Angel is only down for two. Samsonn seems frustarted as he hits a massive stalling suplex and a big splash, but again Angel is able to kick out.
Scoop- Samson using some great power moves, but look at the physical shape that Fallen Angel is in its really something to see.
Snoop- Well he seems to have shed some puppy fat, plus Samson of course not 100% yet, I mean you can't just commentate for like 2 months and expect to step in the ring unless your name is Snoop.
Samson goes for a piledriver, but Angel is able to get a modified hurricana although not well schooled in this high fly move, it does the job of breaking up the piledriver. Samson gets to his feet and nails a vicious clothesline and drops his elbow into Angel's neck choking him a nice move. Samson gets Angel to his feet and goes for a belly to belly suplex, but Angel breaks the hold and topples Samson with a great clothesline of his own Angel bounds off the rope and nails a knee drop to Samson's forehead before scoring a snap suplex on the big guy. Angel begins to back Samson into the corner with rights and lefts, but Samson grabs him on the third attempt and executes a 'samson bomb', Samson covers Angel for an almost certain three count, but Samson gets up he is smiling he takes Angel over to the corner and hoists him on the turnbuckle.
Scoop- Oh my he is going to samson bomb, Angel off the third rope.
Snoop- Somebody ain't going to DOG 2001.
Scoop- Here he goes...wait...Angel blocks it! ANGEL DEATH DROP! ANGEL DEATH DROP! COVER!!!! ONE, TWO THREE HE GOT HIM!
Angel had got a great win as the T.F.W.F. waited for June 23rd, Angel didn't bother to celebrate he just walked backstage.
Winner via pinfall: Fallen Angel
The crowd are electric as a kind of rematch from Highlight Night 2001 takes place, Night Hawk against Pimp In one, on one.
Pimp In vs Night Hawk
The main event for Thursday pitted two of the top men in the T.F.W.F for the last year. NightHawk was ready to take another step closer to Fallen Angel and their meeting inside a steel cage and Pimp In was just looking for a fight, plain and simple. The crowd pop was massive as Pimp In made his way down to the ring with Charlie in tow. Many T.F.W.F fans have felt that Pimp In has been making too many enemies over the past few weeks, but the look of confidence on his face showed the world he wasn't bothered about what anyone thought. As Pimp In made it to the ring the arena lights dimmed as the TA-tron burst into life with NightHawk's entrance video played on the screen. Just like the week before the crowd reaction to Hawk was mixed as some of the fans still hate him for the things he has done in the past and especially selling out Hellbound and joining the Firm-Court. But after his departure from there and his problems with Management, some of the fans are beginning to cheer on their once favourite T.F.W.F wrestler.
The match started off with Hawk in control, he hit a few quick arms drags and a nice drop kick that sent Pimp In through the ropes and to the outside. He tried to catch his breath but all he caught was a sommersault plancha from Hawk that sent both men to the concrete on the outside! Hawk was on his feet first and fired off a few right hands and a knee to the gut before whipping Pimp In over the steel guard rail and into the crowd! Hawk climbed back into the ring and ran at the ropes, he bounced off and sprinted towards the other side. He jumped up onto the top rope and stood there for a second with perfect balance looking out over the huge crowd, before he jumped and hit a high cross body on Pimp In, who was still in the crowd! Hawk dragged Pimp In back over the guard rail and after a couple of forearms to the back he threw the big man back into the ring. Hawk hit a rolling senton splash and followed it up with a corkscrew leg drop before going for the first cover of the night, but Pimp In just got his shoulder up! Hawk scored with some big kicks to Pimp Ins side and shoulders before a nice running clothesline had the former T.F.W.F Champion down again! Hawk was looking in control and went to the top rope. Just as he was getting ready to go for a big move Charlie pulled his foot and Hawk was croched on the top turnbuckle before falling backwards off the top and onto the cold concrete floor! Hawk was in real pain and the fall looked really bad on the replays. Pimp In went to the outside and started to work Hawk over with boots to the back of the head and spine. He picked Hawk up on his shoulder and ran him head first into the ringpost, before rolling him back into the ring. Pimp In hit a few more boots to the head before whipping Hawk off the ropes and scoring with a powerslam and a close two count. He landed a belly to belly over head suplex before three elbows drops to Hawk's face. Pimp In went to the second rope on the inside and landed a leg drop and another close two count. As he picked Hawk up he was caught in the gut with a few punches from the man from Nigeria, before his brains were scrambled with a DDT, Hawk was back in the match, but still badly hurt!
Both men were down when Fallen Angel made his way down the ramp. He stood about halfway down the ramp looking on at his two greatest enemies. Hawk was to his feet first and noticed Angel, he stared down at his former friend before being hit from behind with a side russian leg sweep by Pimp In! He went for the cover but Hawk put his foot on the ropes! Both men were slow getting to their feet and they started trading punches in the middle of the ring. Hawk got the best of the exchange and whipped Pimp In off the ropes before taking him down with a flying head scissors take down. He placed Pimp In on the top rope and hit a nice looking tornado DDT! Pimp In was dazed as Hawk signaled for it one more time and placed Pimp In on the top rope, but this time Pimp In hit a sit down powerbomb on Hawk that nearly got him the win but again Hawk kicked out! Pimp In whipped Hawk into the corner and went for a big splash but Hawk pulled the ref in the way and he caught the brunt of the move knocking him out.
Pimp In went to the outside and grabbed a steel chair, he was looking to end this one way or another. Hawk was still dazed in the ring as Pimp In climbed to the top rope. He jumped off the top and smashed the chair down on Hawk's skull, a sickening blow that bent the chair in half! Pimp In went for the cover but there was no ref! As he turned to see where the official was Fallen Angel slid under the bottom rope and hit a massive spear that sent Pimp In crashing back into the turnbuckles and knocking the wind out of him! Angel signaled for the 'Angel Death Drop' and scored with it sending Pimp In crashing down on to the steel chair! He rolled Hawk on top of Pimp In and started to shake the ref awake, what was going on? The ref came around after a couple of moments and made the slow count but before the three Pimp In kicked out!! Angel couldn't believe it!!
Hawk got to his feet and grabbed the chair and smashed it down across Angel's head knocking him through the ropes and to the outside. By this time the ref had come around and saw Hawk with the chair and called for a DQ!!! Hawk was irate and nailed both Pimp In and the T.F.W.F official with the chair before jumping out of the ring and escaping through the crowd!! Another wild night of T.F.W.F action was over as Angel and Pimp In were left dazed and hurt from Hawk and the steel chair!
Winner by DQ: Pimp In.
