We get a shot of the arena for tonight, lights dimmed before all coming on at once. The sound of “Grand Sword” hits the speakers as the legendary Kenta Kobashi makes his way to the ring. The roster stands shoulder to shoulder as they clap for the general manager of Anarchy Wrestling. Mic in hand, Kobashi welcomes the crowd to the first ever episode of WCA: Anarchy. He says that tonight will see a lot of action that you will soon come to know and love from all World Class Alliance brands. “We have something for everyone. We have hardcore wrestling, high flying, tag team action, and classic puroresu action”. “I have someone to help me with our hardcore division. I think you all might be aware of him, let me bring him out!” Jun Kasai comes out and enters the ring to a huge applause. He gestures towards all of the talent in the ring “Now we have many titles we must begin to crown. We will crown one tonight and begin on the road to crown another. The Anarchy Openweight Title Tournament begins with two action packed matches. Speaking of action we will kick off tonight’s show with a fatal four way ladder match for the Anarchy Asylum Championship. Enough talking, let’s get this show started!
Anarchy Asylum Match: El Hijo Del Vikingo vs PAC vs Masashi Takeda vs Suzu Suzuki:
A ladder is in the middle of the ring as all the competitors make their entrances. The bell rings and our first official match is underway. Takeda heads to the outside to look for something more dangerous, Suzu follows to the other side and pillages the ring for weapons, this leaves Vikingo and PAC to be in the ring alone. PAC shoots Vikingo off the ropes with an Irish Whip, and Vikingo returns with a leapfrog. Hitting the ropes to the other side, this time PAC leap frogs both keep running until they meet in the middle and Vikingo levels PAC with a standing Spanish Fly.
Suzu and Takeda enter the ring, Suzu has a barbed wire bat in hand meanwhile Takeda has a bundle of tubes. They enter the ring and rush from both sides, Vikingo still in the middle backflips away. Suzu and Takeda collide as the bat crashes through the tubes in a messy but beautiful sight. Takeda falls to the mat and rolls out to the floor while Suzu, Vikingo, and PAC square up. Vikingo and Suzu decided to gang up on PAC as they figured he’s the biggest threat, throwing him off the ropes and meeting him with a leg trip/lariat combo.
They continue putting the boots to PAC on the ground, Vikingo climbs to the closest left turnbuckle while Suzu grabs her bucket of bells and climbs to the top of the ladder. Vikingo hits a double moonsault on PAC as Suzu rains down the bells on top of both of them. As she prepares to make her dive, Takeda slides back into the ring and climbs the ladder. He gets Suzu up in a powerbomb position and carries her off towards the heap of people and bells that she helped create. Takeda sends her crashing down with a big powerbomb and now he stands alone.
He rushes up the ladder quickly to try and secure the title hung above the ring. Just as he’s about to reach it, PAC meets him at the top. They exchange blows back and forth before PAC grabs him and tosses Takeda and himself off with a superplex. Meanwhile, Suzu sets up a table on the outside. As she turns to head back, Vikingo comes off the top with a meteora through the table. The crowd clapped loudly at the amazing action that they are witnessing.
Vikingo looks up and realizes he’s the only one standing, he rushes to the apron. Spring boarding from the ropes onto the ladder he climbs up and is inches away from pulling the title away. PAC crawled towards the ladder and shook it enough to disturb Vikingo enough until he got to his feet and pushed the ladder over, sending Vikingo to the floor. Takeda comes into the ring with a new ladder in tow, this one looks a bit different. He sets it up and it’s revealed that there are light tubes lined across the steps.
He gives a devilish grin as Suzu slides in and meets his glare. Takeda kicks off his boots and looks towards the ladder, urging Suzu to do the both. They both climb the hellacious ladder, their feet crunching the tubes as they wince. Takeda makes it up first, he makes a grab at the belt but can’t quite get it. Suzu makes her way up and actually gets a hold on it but Takeda throws some strikes her way causing her to lose grip and making it sway side to side. Suzu fires back as they begin to go back and forth for a bit. Sliding his hand under his foot, Takeda takes a small bit of light tube and hits it over Suzu’s head causing her to take a few steps down. Blood trickles down Suzu’s face as she can only look up as Takeda pulls the title down and claims the Anarchy Asylum Championship.
He celebrates atop the ladder and makes his way down. Special Assistant, Jun Kasai comes down to congratulate the first champ and a longtime friend of his.
Bryan Danielson, Ben-K, And Kouki Iwasaki vs Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao, And Shota
Danielson alongside his Dragon Dojo disciples come down to the ring as Final Countdown plays. Adorned in custom maroon and black robes they pose in the middle of the ring in a very simple but disciplined manner. Endo/Soma/Shota come out in their traditional leather jackets as Endo’s BURNING theme plays. The flashy group hit a fun pose in the ring and then hit the corner as the match got prepared to start. Danielson defers starting the match to Ben-K and Endo lets Shota start off.
Like he was shot out of a cannon, Ben-K rushes Shota and hits him with a huge spear. Continuing the assault, Ben-K just pounds away on Shota with punches with speed and power. Ben-K pauses the onslaught for a moment to pose for the crowd. It doesn’t last long though as he goes right back to pummeling Shota, this time with stomps. Ben-K picks Shota up and shoots him into his corner and levels him with a few elbows to the chest and chin before tagging in Kouki.
Kouki gives a few swift kicks to the chest of Shota before whipping him down in a seated position. A couple more kicks to the back that sound like a gunshot be Iwasaki applies a headlock and looks right at Endo and Soma and taunts them. The camera cuts to Danielson as he shoots an approving grin towards Kouki then Ben-K as he seemingly approves of them thus far. It cuts back as Kouki begins to transition into a triangle choke. He has it locked in for a few moments before Endo and Soma come rushing in to break it up.
Ben-K and Kouki take turns getting heat on Shota for a bit before they finally tag in Danielson. Danielson grinds away on Shota with submissions and elbows with the biggest grin on his face, just embracing the violence of it all. Bryan throws him into the corner and tags in Ben-K so they can do a double team move but Shota slips away and is finally able to get out of the match. Tagging in Endo, he comes in like a house of fire firing off on all of the Dragon Dojo with forearms and chops. He clears the ring so Dragon Dojo sits outside the ring trying to regroup but they don’t get a lot of time before Endo launches himself over the top rope with a tornillo. At the same time Endo did his dive, Shota and Soma did stereo suicide dives which completely takes out Dragon Dojo and the momentum has shifted.
Endo tosses Ben-K in the ring and immediately hits the ropes hard and hits his signature handspring kick on Ben-K and goes for the pin. He kicks out at two while the crowd claps loudly at the action. Endo moves over to tag in Soma Takao as Soma begins to light up Ben-K with some slaps. It’s not too smart of a decision though, as Ben-K fires back with some hard slaps across the cheek. They continue to trade slaps and chops before Ben-K finally gets the upper hand but they both fall to the mat in exhaustion.
Ben-K and Soma crawl towards their respective corners and tag out. Danielson and Endo come in and stare each other down for a moment. The crowd clapped as they were very excited to see the two leaders of the respective groups lock up. Danielson lures Endo into a test of strength before kicking Endo in the gut and laughing. Then he takes Endo’s arm and twists it behind his back, slipping slowly but surely down to the mat before striking his arm and back with a thunderous kick.
Danielson flexes his technical prowess for a little bit, twisting Endo’s arm every which way. Bryan gives his pupils a look, they nod as if they understood a silent cue and pull down both Shota and Soma. Like a shark smelling blood in the water, Danielson attacks and locks on his vintage Cattle Mutilation submission hold. Endo struggles in it for a bit but is just able to stretch his leg to the bottom rope. On the outside, Soma and Shota have fought off Ben-K and Kouki and both returned to their respective corners.
Meanwhile, Danielson is readying up for his Busaiku Knee strike. Endo gets to his feet gradually as Bryan rushes in, Endo is able to leap over Danielson and evade the move. Thinking quickly, Endo hits with a dropkick dead on the chin of Danielson. Up top he goes, looking for his signature Shooting Star Press. Endo flies through the sky but just before he can make an impact, Danielson gets his knees up. Bryan tries to scramble to get the LaBell Lock synched in and he does. Ben-K and Kouki run in to stop Shota and Soma from interfering. They are able to hold them off long enough for Endo to tap and Danielson to secure the win. Danielson pulls Ben-K and Kouki in close and they stand shoulder to shoulder with Danielson’s hands wrapped around them. A good win for Danielson Dojo as they look to set sights on the Anarchy United 6 Man Titles.
