Dark Match Results
Vampiro def. Shane Douglas & Justin Credible
William Regal def. The Hurricane & Steve Austin

-[[ The show opens in a doctor's office, the text "Three days ago" written across the bottom of the screen. Taz sitting in a waiting room, his head bandaged, he looks doped out on pain killers. A doctor steps into the room with a clipboard in his hand, he approaches where Taz is seated, his expression grim. ]]-

Doctor: I'm afraid I have some bad news..

-[[ Taz doesn't acknowledge the doctor or even move. ]]-

Doctor: I know this is the last thing you want to hear.. It's tough on anybody when something like this happens. And even though, you'd think it would eventually, it doesn't get any easier for me... To deliver news like this.. So, I'm going to say it..

-[[ The doctor fights hard not to look away, the fact that Taz is looking down, not looking back at him, makes it easier. ]]-

Doctor: It's over.

-[[ Taz shakes his head. ]]-

Doctor: Your concussion isn't getting better, it's getting worse... It's one of the worst cases I've ever seen. You can't get back inside of another ring. I don't know how long you can hold up, but the next body slam, the next suplex... The next stiff punch... Could be what kills you.

-[[ Taz stands up and starts slowly for the door. ]]-

Doctor: I know how much it means to you.....

-[[ Taz looks back at him. ]]-

Doctor: I guess it's weird to hear from me, being a doctor and all, but I used to watch SGW fairly regularly... And seeing your style of wrestling, I guess it doesn't surprise me the condition you're in... I know, Taz.. I know how much you want the belt... But it's not worth dying over...

-[[ The doctor pauses. ]]-

Doctor: ...It's just a belt.

-[[ The doctor stops and waits for anything to happen. Taz to blow, Taz to break into a promo, punch him, anything. Instead, he gets the one response he didn't expect. ]]-

Taz: You don't know what you're talkin' about.

-[[ Taz walks out as the doctor stands there, defeated. ]]-

Chris Kanyon vs. Taz
Title on the Line: None
Stipulation: None

-[[ Taz is extremely uncharacteristic. He doesn't look confident, as a matter of fact, he's shaking like a leaf. The news from the doctor has rattled him, but he wants to continue his quest for the title.. But this could mean life or death... Chris Kanyon jumps on him and begins hitting him with a barrage of punches, throwing the book of wrestling out the window. Life or death? Any punch can be his last. Taz dropped to the mat, away from Kanyon and rolled under the bottom rope to the outside. The referee begins counting Taz out. Kanyon taunts him, wanting him back inside, but Taz just looks at him.

Disappointed in himself, but in his mind, he knows he made the right decision. Walk away. ]]-
Winner: Chris Kanyon via Count Out


-[[ Taz begins his walk up the ramp and the fans catch on to what's happening. Kanyon doesn't look pleased at all, chatting with Paul Heyman at ringside, but the fans have begun to give Taz a standing ovation. Anyone could respect why he made the decision he did. Taz looks out at the people, showing him respect for everything he has done for the business. The roars, stomping, and clapping pick up and Taz wipes his eyes, it wasn't supposed to end like-- ]]-

-[[ Val Venis' music hits. The fans nearly blow the roof off of the place with their boos. Taz turns toward the entrance way, his look of appreciation replaced by a look of rage and a more subtle look that says he expected it. Val Venis walks out onto the ramp. Arn Anderson is behind him with a microphone in his hand. Anderson and Venis stand on the stage area, away from Taz. Anderson begins to speak. ]]-

Arn Anderson: Taz.. It took two beatin's... One from Raven, one from Steve Corino... To get it into your head that you're not Solid Gold material.. On one hand, I'm glad... I'm glad you came to your senses and are calling it quits.. On the other hand, I can't be that proud of you.. Because it took a career ending injury to smarten you up enough to walk away...

-[[ Anderson shrugs. ]]-

Arn Anderson: But I want you to know somethin'... Injury or not, if you walk through that curtain, there won't be a next time. In six months, you won't be back all healed up... You're gone for good, leavin' on the biggest losin' streak of your career.. Lettin' that eat you alive inside... Every day for the rest of your life..

-[[ Venis has an extremely smug smile across his face. ]]-

Arn Anderson: Sittin' right there on your couch, that's where you'll be.. Bret Hart eatin' away at part of you.. Val Venis eatin' away at the rest of you.. Till there ain't nothin' left but an empty shell. And that's when you'll decide you want to come back, that's when you'll want revenge, to fill up that emptiness.... But then you'll remember that it's over and that you'll never be complete again....

-[[ Anderson pauses and strokes his beard, Taz's eyes settle on the image of Venis cracking his knuckles like he's ready to fight. ]]-

Arn Anderson: You know as well as anybody that SGW legends don't leave clean.. Not a one.. Especially ones like you, Taz.. And I want to give you the chance, Taz, I want to give you the chance to take your shot at ol' Double A.. You know you want to... This is the last time we're ever gonna be standin' face to face... You've been talkin' for years, ever since Heartbreaker, about how much you wanted to take a swing at me.. This is your first and your last chance.... You hit me, knock me on my ass, and you walk out of here a free man, nothin' left to eat you alive.. Heartbreaker avenged...

-[[ Anderson walks down, just a few feet away from Taz.. Venis stays on the stage. Anderson raises his chin, waiting for impact. Taz stares at him, the fans buzzing loudly.. Taz yanks the microphone out of Anderson's hand. ]]-

TAZ: ....Ya' not even worth it.

-[[ Taz throws down the microphone and pushes past Anderson, walking up the ramp. He walks past Venis, eyeballing him as they cross, the fans clapping for Taz.. And Venis hits him in the back. ]]-

-[[ The fans erupt in boos as Taz sprawls face first into the steel ramp. Venis stomps Taz repeatedly and begins punching him in the back of the head. Venis looks like he has absolutely snapped.

Taz is dazed, but like a wounded animal, he's up and refuses to quit, throwing punches back at Venis, blood pouring from a wound on his forehead, Venis throws a punch and Taz ducks it and shoves Venis from behind, slamming him face first into the ring post!! Venis slams backward off the post, blood pouring from a wound above his eye now and without even stopping to wipe his face, he begins brawling with Taz again and Taz whips Venis hard into the guardrail!!

Venis is up like he was hit with nothing and charges blindly at Taz, only to get a BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!! Venis stays down this time and Taz rolls out of the ring and pulls a table out from under the ring.... He slides it into the ring and follows it in himself and by this time, Venis is on his feet again, running at Taz and Taz rips his head off with a lariat!! The fans are going absolutely fucking APE SHIT!! Taz sets the table up and looks at Venis, then at the table.... And he shakes his head. What the hell? Taz rolls out of the ring again and goes searching under the ring for something else.. What is he looking for!? Taz finally finds what looks to be a white bottle..... And rolls back in the ring with it.. The fans begin buzzing with excitement and he begins squirting the contents of the bottle onto the table!! MY GOD, HE'S GOING TO LIGHT IT ON FIRE!!! Taz strikes a match and the table is set ablaze!! The fans are ready to explode, and Taz starts to pick Venis up, Venis' blood on Taz, Taz's blood on Venis, and Taz is nailed from behind with a chair by Arn Anderson!!! Taz drops Venis, yells in total rage, and turns around, staring at Anderson, not batting an eye about the chairshot!! Anderson takes a step back and throws the chair down!! Taz begins advancing on him, yelling obscenities at him, and Taz grabs Anderson by the shirt, the fans are going absolutely crazy and Val Venis cracks Taz right on top of the head with the chair!! Taz slumps down to both knees, his fingers tearing Anderson's shirt in an effort to hold on, to exact his revenge, and he stares hard into Anderson's eyes as Venis brings the chair down hard on his head again... He doesn't feel the third shot and he's already face down on the mat when the fourth shot makes blood come out of his ears. Venis throws the chair down and Anderson looks at Taz, looks back at Venis, and says...... ]]-

Arn Anderson: Finish him off.

-[[ Finish him off!? Oh hell no, he can't possibly mean.... ]]-

-[[ Venis pulls Taz off the mat, his body limp, blood draining out of several different wounds in his head, and sets him up... AND POWER BOMBS HIM THROUGH THE FLAMING TABLE!!! Some of the fire catches on Taz's outfit, burning small holes in it.. Venis stares down into the flames, the fans booing so loudly that you can't hear anything else. EMTs flood the ring, scurrying past Venis to put out the flames. The camera pans in hard on Venis, his face covered in blood, a glassy look in his eyes, surveying the damage done. ]]-

Kane grabs Cena, hoists him up.... CHOKE SLAM!! Kane and Raven leave the ringside area. ]]-

-[[ John Cena staggers to his feet, woozy from the impact.... He wonders why the fans are making so much noise, could it be because they love him? Because they're happy he's still standing?

Goldberg yells loudly, "CHRISTIAN!!!!!! YOU'RE NEXT!!!!" ]]-
