Yūgen: Bloody Rose
June 29th, 2019
Oddly enough, the show began with me. Or more specifically, with me walking out to the ring. I greeted the fans and thanked them for joining us for the evening. Afterwards, I told everyone that I had a special announcement.
The first NEO Academy show featured a match with Yugen’s own, Cora. Well, because of that, the academy has returned the favor and sent us two wrestlers. Those two would kick off the show in a few minutes.
The fans were quite receptive of the news. The only question they seemed to have was, who were the wrestlers?
Well, the first wrestler was Morgiana!
And her opponent?
The head trainer at the NEO Academy. My aunt. Michi Marsuda!
The crowd seemed happy. So with that, I exited the ring.
Michi Matsuda O [8:19 via Falcon Arrow] | Morgiana X
Time for a fun fact!
Morgiana is actually Hisano Fujikawa’s younger sister. One wouldn’t exactly know that, based on their demeanors. But it was the truth.
Both sisters were talent in the ring, but in different ways. From what I’ve always been told, wrestling came easy to Hisano. It didn’t come as easily to Morgiana, but according to Aunt Michi, she was one of the hardest working students within the NEO Academy. She wasn’t perfect in the ring, but her willingness to strengthen her weaknesses and her dedication were unmatched.
Aunt Michi and Morgiana met in the center of the ring as soon as the bell rang. She showed a bit of that Fujikawa fire as she walked up and slapped Aunt Michi across the face. It might have caused a different person to stumble, but Aunt Michi was unmoved.
In fact, she laughed.
Morgiana laid in about six or seven forearms. From there, she switched to kicks to the midsection—
Aunt Michi responded with one fatal forearm of her own.
It was thunderous.
Morgiana fell flat on her back. My aunt went for the pinfall, but Morgiana got her shoulder up.
Aunt Michi spent the next four minutes or so using her size as a mighty advantage. She picked Morgiana up, ran, and delivered a front-roll. And of course, she maintained that hold. Aunt Michi made it to her feet, only to leap into the air and hit a crushing Samoan drop. She went for another pinfall, but Morgiana kicked out. Next came a series of belly-to-belly suplexes. Then came another pinfall attempt…
Morgiana got her shoulder up.
It looked as if the match was nearly over when Aunt Michi lifted her student up for a suplex, but Morgiana slipped out. She then rolled Aunt Michi up. Two-count. Morgiana jumped back up and threw mean roundhouse. It was a clipping blow, but it was effective nonetheless. It forced Aunt Michi to roll away use the ropes for leverage. Morgiana shot herself into the ropes…
And then she delivered a mean dropkick; in fact, Morgiana’s momentum carried her outside of the ring. She delivered an elbow to the back of Aunt Michi’s head before she slid back into the ring. Morgiana hit the ropes and rebounded with a leg lariat. That led to a two-count.
Morgiana locked in a sleeper hold in the match’s final moments―an homage to her sister. And to Morgiana’s credit, she had wonderful form. And for a split second, it appeared as if Aunt Michi would fade away. But that second was fleeting as she mustered up her strength and stood to her feet. She then backpedaled and rammed Morgiana’s back into the corner turnbuckle. That led to a deep snapmare.
The youngster was quick to get back to her feet, but all she received as a knee to the sternum. That led to a nasty brainbuster. She maintained that grip and got back to her feet. From there, Aunt Michi nailed a Falcon Arrow. That earned her the three-count.
Aunt Michi and Morgiana had a small interaction after the match. I’m not sure what she said to her student. Morgiana nodded her head afterwards. Aunt Michi soaked up some praise before she exited the ring. And then crowd clapped it up for Morgiana before she left the ring.
This was a short video that detailed Nohelle and Yumi’s interactions over the past tour. Noehelle’s wild antics and cheating ways from Night One were covered. It then cut to Nohelle gloating about how much better than Yumi that she was. The last scene showed simply showed Yumi in the gym. But, she had that determined look in her eyes.
Yumi O [12:34 via Last Song] | Nohelle Bentlee X
If you’ve been paying attention this tour, then you know why this match was made. Nohelle and Yumi fought on Night One; throughout the course of the bout, Ms. Bentlee broke many rules and took advantage of certain situations. Her tactics earned her a “win,” but they also served to piss off both me and Yumi. Ms. Strong deserved the run-back.
Nohelle was back on her bullshit again as soon as the bell rang. She stepped right up to Yumi and started jaw-jacking. She told Yumi that she wasn’t even a quarter of the wrestler that she was. Afterwards, Nohelle tried to get the crowd to agree with her words. But the crowd wanted no part of her vile speech. And the fans made it pretty clear as they threw their support behind Yumi. That support allowed Yumi be confident and stand strong.
That really pissed Nohelle up.
She got up in Yumi’s face and started talking more trash. And then she slapped Yumi. She slapped her again…
Nohelle‘s hand got caught on the third attempt. That’s when she got pulled in and slaughtered with a lariat. Nohelle was slow to get up, but when she did, an elbow came flying her way. It caught her on the side of the neck.
That elbow was a wake up call. It let Nohelle know that she was in a fight. And how did Ms. Bentlee respond? She dipped out of the ring and looked as if she was going to leave.
Yumi was having none of that.
Strong Song followed Nohelle out of the ring. But she played right into Nohelle’s trap as blasted Yumi in the stomach with a hard punch. Yumi responded by drilling her opponent with firearms, but her offense got shut down when Nohelle clapped Yumi on the ears. Afterwards, she rammed Yumi’s head into the guard rail. A boot to Yumi’s head was soon to follow.
Following her assault, Nohelle slid into the ring and demanded that the referee begin the twenty-count. The referee had used her discretion before and let both wrestlers fight. However, she did start the count.
It took her some time, but Yumi did beat the twenty-count; she rolled underneath the bottom rope at seventeen. Nohelle hit the ropes and connected with a sliding dropkick. She then went for the pin, but Yumi kicked out.
Yumi got kicked in the ribs as she crawled over to the corner. Nohelle also gave her a few forearms before she ran to the adjacent corner. Ms. Bentlee came blazing in and clobbered Yumi with her Bass Clef running cannonball senton. But she didn’t stop there. She pulled Yumi out of their corner and hit a huge leaping senton before she went for the pin. Yumi kicked out when she tossed Nohelle off of her.
A certain level of urgency hit Nohelle once they both got on their feet. She charged full speed at Yumi and looked to drop her with lariat.
Yumi? Well, she had other plans. She grabbed a charging Nohelle and yeeted her into the air. Yumi then caught Nohelle and powered her down with a Samoan drop. She then grabbed Nohelle and deadlifted her up for a gut-wrench suplex. Yumi maintained that grip and rose back up only to plant her with a Doctor Bomb. She went for the cover, but Nohelle kicked out.
Well, Yumi was quite fired up after that. She brought Nohelle back up to her feet and looked to end things—
Until Nohelle jammed her thumb into Yumi’s eye. Yumi wobbled backwards as Nohelle shot herself into the ropes. However, Nohelle wasn’t able to take advantage. Yumi delivered a nasty boot to the face despite her stinging eyes. And man, did it rock Nohelle. That’s when Strong Song yoked her up and crushed her with a Last Song sitout-powerbomb. That earned her the three-count.
Once again, the fans threw their support behind Yumi. Strong Song lifted a fist up in victory. She also shot a glare to her fallen foe. Yumi shakes her head and rubs her eyes before she walked away.
Prince HITOMI and Gina Yanagi made their way out to the ring. The Scheming Prince tried to sell her board game while Gina interacted with some of the fans in the front row. Afterwards, those two got to work selling everyone’s t-shirt’s and such. It was a mild affair; not too much to report. I think people were saving their energy for the last two matches.
It was a simple little video that showed highlights of both Lisa and ASURA in the ring. Lisa’s voice then came in and stated that she was coming for the gold no matter the cost. ASURA had a small voiceover too. She said that no in Yugen could hold a candle to her, that’s why Lisa was brought in. But ASURA said her Strong Style would conquer all. And with that, the video ended.
Yugen Ethos Championship
ASURA O [20:01 via God Slaying Spear] | Lisa Seldon X
This was a match that a great deal of fans were excited for. The match up was also intriguing due to their relationship. At the very least, they appeared to be friends (I think). Even still, they’d gone to battle in the past. Most recent, an iteration of Lisa’s Hellcats faced ASURA, .PAAK, and Amira Kassouri in After Dark. ASURA’s team picked up the victory and retained their Trios Championships.
It’s important to note that there was A LOT of hostility between both teams. Maybe some of that aggression carried over to this match?
Or maybe they were just two wrestlers hungry for glory and hell-bent on murking each other. It was a coin flip.
The match started off with a series of strike exchanges. ASURA blasted Lisa with a flurry of elbows. Ms. Seldon took them in stride. It wasn’t long before Lisa landed a flurry of her own. ASURA returned fire with six or seven clinched knees to the sternum. Lisa? She did the same…
The two continued to go back and forth until Lisa broke up the cycle with a spinning back elbow. It actually caught ASURA off guard and allowed Lisa to kick out her left leg. Lisa quickly hit the ropes and rebounded with a sliding dropkick. As ASURA attempted to rise, Lisa launched out her Man Opener grounded roundhouse. It likely would have ended the match, if it had connected. ASURA was able to dodge it. She then hopped up to her feet and delivered a front push kick to Lisa’s chest. That gave her ample room to set up for her God Slaying Spear knee strike. That time, Lisa showed some dexterity and moved out of the way. It was long before both wrestlers got back up, but ASURA made sure that everyone in attendance knew that she was “this close” to winning the bout.
ASURA and Lisa battled back and forth until Lisa hit a flying triangle hold. It was beautiful submission. It also caught ASURA off guard initially. Lisa had the hold locked in for a moderate amount of time, but ASURA was eventually able to pry Lisa’s legs away and power out.
As they got back up, ASURA completed a running switch. She dropped Lisa with a Greco-Roman takedown before she rolled and placed her opponent in front channsory. Lisa crawled at ASURA’s arms to escape—
That’s when the knees started flying.
Three to be exact, ASURA rolled Lisa over and went for the pinfall after the third; Lisa kicked out. This led to them standing back up. ASURA connected with a series of alternating forearms. After the last forearm rocked Lisa, ASURA then went for a drive-by kick. It would have done major damage had it connected; Lisa moved out of the way. She then delivered a back brain kick before she shot herself into the ropes. Lisa rebounded and clobbered ASURA with Yakuza kick. The Ethos Champion spun and hit the ground pretty hard. That’s when Lisa dropped down for the pinfall. Two-count. Lisa later continued to show her offensive prowess when she hit a Northern Lights suplex. She rolled through instead of going for the pin. She then lifted ASURA onto her shoulders, leapt into the air, and delivered a Death Valley Driver. The crowd got a bit excited as Lisa went for the pinfall. Two-count.
Well, Lisa was feeling it at that point. She exited the ring and stood the apron. A second later, she used the ropes to spring into the air and nail a leg drop―
But no one was home.
Lisa landed hard on the mat as ASURA rose up. She hit the ropes and connected with that drive-by kick she’d been seeking earlier. ASURA then hit the ropes once more; she rebounded and drilled Lisa with a sliding forearm strike. ASURA hooked Lisa’s leg, but Ms. Seldon was able to kick out.
Something, err, interesting happened as the match went on. ASURA backed herself into the corner and gave her opponent this very flirtatious wave. You’re probably wondering how wave can be flirtatious. You’ll just have to trust me on this one.
It was, it was a moment.
And then ASURA attempted to bash Lisa’s brains in with a few kesagiri chops. After the last on connected, ASURA attempted to shoot herself into the ropes―
But her momentum was shut down when Lisa grabbed ahold of her hair. Lisa used ASURA hair to pull her in; a snap dragon suplex resulted.
And then her Man Opener grounded house connected.
Lisa returned ASURA’s previous affections by blowing her a kiss before she dropped to the mat and went for the pinfall. ASURA kicked out before the referee’s hand hit the mat for the third time.
Lisa was in control for a few minutes. She connected with her Funlay Roll basement fireman’s carry. Lisa got back to her feet and attempt to hit her Evil Dead Fisherman Driver, but ASURA was able to slip out of her grasp. This caused Lisa to shoot herself into the ropes; ASURA followed her. Lisa went for a lariat on the rebound, but ASURA ducked underneath it. ASURA hit the ropes, rebounded, and nailed a God Slaying Spear right to Lisa’s jaw. The crowd thought the match was finished, but Lisa kicked out.
In order to get some space, Lisa rolled out to the ring apron. ASURA’s response? She followed her and picked Lisa up. Well, that led to a forearm exchange. And once again, Lisa flipped the script with a toe-kick to the sternum. She then dropped ASURA onto the apron with an X-Factor. She also gave ASURA a boot to the head before she shoved her back into the ring. Ms. Seldon jumped on the apron and waited for ASURA to rise. That’s when she sprung up and hit a dropkick.
Well, it was safe to say that Lisa was fired up at that point. She certainly continued her assault as ASURA rose back up. Lisa laid in a stern roundhouse. But to ASURA’s credit, she remained on her feet. Lisa hit a mean spinning heel kick. But ASURA wouldn’t fall. That’s when Lisa shot herself into the ropes. She rebounded and connected with a lariat. That finally floored the champion. Lisa went for the pin, but ASURA kicked out. Lisa shot herself into the ropes once more, but that time ASURA rose back up and cut her off with a knee to the sternum. ASURA then connected with a front push kick in order to knock her opponent back a bit. From there, she landed a rolling koppu kick. That blow sent Lisa straight to the mat. Ms. Seldon rolled onto her stomach, but that’s when ASURA let out this loud shriek:
“BOW DOWN TO YOUR MASTAAAAA!”
A thunderous axe kick followed. All that was left was to roll Lisa over and hook the leg―
I’d describe the last ten minutes of the bout as the “overdrive portion.” Lisa hit a quick sitout jawbreaker; that allowed her to lift ASURA up for a gordbuster. That earned her a two-count. ASURA would then hit a CCS enziguri and follow it up with a curb stomp. Another two-count. Lisa would finally hit that Funlay roll; afterwards, she connected with her Evil Dead Fisherman Driver. Another two-count. How did ASURA respond? She broke out her Kill, Destroy, Annihilate combo. Lisa got hammered with corner chops, then kicks, then knees.
It was brutal. But it still didn’t keep Lisa down.
ASURA attempted to end everything with a pumphandle piledriver. Lisa? She had other plans. She slipped out and landed behind the Yugen Ethos Champion. Lisa quickly spun ASURA around and looked to blast her with a Wolfsbane mist attack―
But ASURA moved out of the way.
She then drilled Lisa with a forearm. Lisa as able to recover and fire back with a forearm of her own. They traded those forearms until ASURA superkicked Lisa’s knee. That led to a vicious Kiss My Converse grounded superkick―
Lisa remained on her knees, though.
This caused ASURA to nod her head and smirk. She then hit the ropes. ASURA rebounded and hit Lisa with the nastiest God Slaying Spear that she could muster. She then made the cover and got the three-count.
The crowd went wild after the match. The fans also clapped very loudly and showed their appreciation for the match they’d just seen. The camera lingered on both wrestlers as they lay on the mat. Then it cut to black.
I figured the fans needed a quick ten minute breather before the main event. Most people simply went to the restroom or got some snacks. There was a mild buzz floating throughout the air. People were ready for what was to come.
Yugen Eternity Championship
Milena LeCavalier O [35:11 via Extinction Crisis B ] Kagami Nakanishi X
Per usual, the crowd was buzzing before the Eternity Championship participants made their way to the ring. Everyone in the arena knew that there was going to be a war; and they were ready for whatever bloodshed might occur.
I’m not sure I was, not in the moment.
The lights dimmed down real low as Jackson Eppley’s “A Place Darker Still” played throughout the arena. The song’s heavy tone was quite ominous. And it was all accented by Milena’s black and silver attire. She deliberately walked to the ring and slid underneath the bottom rope. There was a look in her eyes―
She meant business. That’s for damn sure.
Milena had this air of confidence about her as she paced around the ring. It wasn’t long before her music died down. And once it did, the lights got even more dim.
There was about a thirty second pause before MUCC’s “Ranchuu” began to play. The song went on for about forty-five seconds before Kagami stepped onto the entryway. Her red, black, and silver attire was swanky. The Eternity Championship was fastened to her waist. Kagami let out might roar and raised a fist before she began walking to the ring.
I knew that Kagami was ready to fight. She always was. Even still, there a quite a look of serenity in her eyes. There was also a slight smirk on her face. I’d seen that smirk before all of her big fights. It was as if she enjoyed the harshness of battle.
Kagami didn’t linger long as climbed the steps and entered into the ring. Afterwards, I entered the ring and we handled all the pre-match photography formalities. The referee also checked in with each wrestler. Both were ready. And with that, the referee called for the bell to ring…
And it began.
There was a “Big Fight” feel in the air as Kagami and Milena circled each other in the middle of the ring. Milena asked if Kagami was ready; she also said she didn’t want to hear any excuses afterwards. Kagami? She responded by patting her head and flexing her arm; an indication that she was ready to go.
The match started with a lock up. But not a run of the mill one. It was reminiscent of two bulls colliding with each other. It was quite a sight. Nonetheless, neither of them could gain the advantage, so that lock up ended in a stalemate.
Both wrestlers took a moment to regroup before they locked up again. Kagami was able to strike that time as she place Milena in a hammerlock. That didn’t last long as Milena reached down, grabbed Kagami’s boot, and dropped her to the mat. From there, Milena began to twist and contort the New Ace’s ankle. Kagami has pained expression on her face all the while. To counteract the maneuver, Kagami flipped to her stomach and brought her free leg down onto the one Milena had holding. Her positioning allowed Kagami to slap on a headlock. Milena crawled at her opponent’s head and arms; that’s when Kagami sent her to the mat with a takedown. Though, it was a blessing in disguise for Milena as she was able to use a head scissors and slip out of Kagami’s grasp. Both wrestlers rolled away and stood up. Kagami went for an elbow, but Milena gave her mean side-step and ended up behind her. She grabbed Kagami by the waist and dropped her to mat; Milena then transitioned into a front chansory. But Kagami grabbed her arm, spun, and drove it into the mat. That allowed both wrestlers to roll away and regroup once again.
Kagami had a particular aggressive aura about her as she went back on the offensive. She flustered and frustrated Milena with some rapid palm strikes. But it wasn’t long before Ms. LeCavalier fired back with some stiff slaps to the face. But Kagami put a stop to that head she drilled Milena in the chest with a headbutt. She then spun Milena around planted her with a Saito suplex. Milena kicked out of the pinball attempt.
The Tiniest Giant wasn’t done there as she delivered some vicious stomps to Milena’s head before she wrapped her up in a triangle choke. It was a tight one too. Milena kept her composure and her wits about her, though. After a bit of work, she was able to pry one of Kagami’s legs away. From there, she transitioned into a STF. She cranked back on Kagami’s neck, but the champion still had a bunch of fight in her. Slowly but surely, Kagami made her way to the edge of the ring. She then got her hand on the bottom rope to break the hold.
A strike exchange broke out as soon as they made it to their feet. Kagami laid in some mean elbows, but Milena won the battle when her Scorn reverse roundhouse connected. Milena then shot herself into the ropes. She blazed in—
A wicked rolling elbow floored Ms. LeCavalier.
Kagami didn’t even wince after using that right arm of hers. Afterwards, she went for the pin. Two-count.
Both wrestlers were a little spent at that point; it took them a moment or two to get back up. Kagami tried to strike first as she launched out and forearm, but Milena beat her to the punch with a standing Extinction Crisis A V-Trigger.
Kagami? She fell to the mat like a rock. Her unmoving body lay there for a second before Milena rushed in and made the cover. I thought Milena had knocked her out with that strike and that we had a new Eternity Champion. The “clunk” sound that resulted wasn’t cute all…
But somehow, Kagami got her shoulder up just in the nick of time. And based on the glassy look in her eyes, it was probably all instinctual.
Most people in Milena’s situation would have been phased. She wasn’t. The Last of a Dying Breed simply stood to her feet and cracked her neck. It was time to get back to work. She picked Kagami up a few moments later.
Now, allow me to say this. At that point in the match, I knew something was wrong. Kagami might have appeared to be one hundred percent at the start of the match, but she certainly wasn’t after that knee strike. She wobbled and seemed unsteady as she tried to get herself back into the match. And in the back of my mind, I feared that another concussion had reared its ugly head.
Me and the referee must have been on the same wavelength. She told Milena to back away as she checked on Kagami. She quickly checked her pupils before she asked if Kagami wanted to stop fighting. And of course, the champion declined. She said that she was fit to fight.
And so, the match continued.
Kagami threw out a few palm strikes, but they didn’t have much mustard behind them. They were also slow and imprecise; Milena was able to effortlessly dodge out of the way. Ms. LeCavalier retaliated with a series of stern chops to the chest; and when that was said and done, she whipped Kagami into the corner. Milena ran in and connected with a corner Shining Wizard knee. Kagami’s head rocked back violently, so much so that some fans in the front row let out a gasp. Afterwards, Milena lifted Kagami up and placed her on the top rope. Milena attempted to grab her, but Kagami began to show some life as she connected with a few slaps.
A step up knee put a halt to Kagami’s rebellion.
From there, Milena was able to yoke Kagami up. She took a few steps before she leapt into the air and deliver a devisitanting Head Over Heels muscle buster. Milena quick flipped over and went for the pinfall―
Rope break. Kagami had gotten her boot on the bottom rope.
Just about everyone in the crowd started to clap. They appreciated Milena’s grit and determination; they also appreciated Kagami’s heart and desire to keep fighting. Some of the fans began shouting Kagami’s name in support as the Tiniest Giant crawled to ropes and tried to get up to a knee. She was hurting and tired. And because of that, she was unable to move out of the way.
A high speed Extinction Crisis A hit!
The “clunk” sound was even greater this time. So was the force. Kagami tumbled through the ropes and nearly hit her noggin on the ring apron. Fortunately for her, Milena had gotten ahold of her boot. She gritted her teeth and yanked Kagami back in the ring. Afterwards, she dropped down and went for the pin. Once again, Kagami got her shoulder up just in time.
If that first Extinction Crisis didn’t concuss Kagami, the subsequent knee strikes certainly did. I could tell as she rolled around on the mat.
But Milena had no mercy. And honestly she shouldn't have. Both wrestlers knew what was at stake.
The Last of a Dying Breed lifted Kagami up in an electric chair position. She was thinking about that Usurp the Throne Croyt’s Wrath. However, Kagami started to squirm. She was able to slip out and land behind Milena. And once she steadied herself (to the best of her ability), she drilled Milena in the back of the head with an elbow. That one actually had some stank on it. She then grabbed Milena by the waist and planted her with an elevated German suplex. She bridged into a pin, but Milena kicked out at two.
Kagami held her head as she made it back to her feet. However, she let out an aggressive grunt and fought through the pain. The Eternity Champion shot herself into the ropes just as Milena began to rise to a knee. She rebounded and connected with a shining boot. A pinfall resulted, but Milena kicked out once again.
A sea of adrenaline flooded Kagami’s body as she stood up and made her way to the corner turnbuckle. It wasn’t long before she made it to the top rope. She spotted up before she leapt off with a nice frog splash―
But Milena moved the hell out of the way as she descended.
The New Ace of Yugen crashed and burned on the mat. The miscue allowed Milena to rise and hit the foots. She rebounded and trashed Kagami’s chest with running soccer kick. Milena hooked Kagami’s leg as she went for the pinfall…
But Kagami kicked out!
The fans began to get a bit wild as Milena stood Kagami back up. Another strike exchange broke out. Surprisingly enough, Kagami was on the better end of it. Seeing an opportunity, she went for another rolling elbow. However, Milena blocked it by kicking her arm. Kagami winced in pain. Milena? She went to attack―
But she walked right into a headbutt.
It wasn’t smartest attack by Kagami. She felt it immediately afterwards as she held her head for a second or two. But once more, she let out a mighty shout! That shout helped her fire herself up. She was able to grab a staggering Milena and yoke her up.
Her Dealer’s Choice package piledriver connected!
A portion of the crowd stood up as Kagami went for the cover―
But Milena kicked out!
The Yugen fans were going a bit wild as both Milena and Kagami laid on the mat. I can only imagine how tired those two were at that point. The referee should have been counting, however, she used her discretion and allowed Kagami and Milena to get up at their own pace.
With Milena having kicked out of the Dealer’s Choice, Kagai knew that she only had one option. She mustered up all the coordination and strength that she could in order to deliver an overhand chop to Milena’s chest. Her fingers then interlaced with Milena’s…
It was time for Bated Breath.
Kagami ran up to the top rope. She was just about to spring backwards and deliver that cutter. That is until Milena lift up her boot and kicked out Kagami’s right leg―The Tiniest Giant free-fell and landed on her neck and shoulders.
It was, it was a nasty sight. I can’t lie about that.
A majority of the fans went silent. They thought that Kagami might have been seriously harmed. And she could have very well been. Regardless, the fight in Kagami allowed her to crawl and end up in the corner. The referee immediately rushed in to check on her. Kagami told the referee that she wasn’t going to quit...
The next thing we all saw was the referee rolling out of the way as Milena glided through the air. Her double knee strike hit perfectly. She called that the Show Me Where It Hurts. She pulled Kagami out of the corner and went for the pinfall, but Kagami got her shoulder up once more.
We saw both Kagami and Milena on their knees for the final sequence. They simply smacked the mess out of each other. But Milena’s strikes had more weight to them. A strong slap caused Kagami to drop her guard. And it was clear that she didn’t have anything left in that tank. Milena hopped up and hit the ropes―
Extinction Crisis B Boma Ye to the back of the head.
Kagami slowly slumped to the mat. From there, Milena dropped down and rolled her over. She hooked the leg and got the three-count.
That was a grueling match to watch. I can’t imagine how it felt to be apart of it. Milena was the first one to make it to her feet. Kagami? She rolled underneath the bottom and rested on the apron. She was still holding her head, by the way.
I then walked out of the ring and strapped the Yugen Eternity Champion on Milena’s waist. Aunt Michi handed her a trophy. And of course, the photographer spent a bit of time capturing history. After all of that was said and done, Milena was given a microphone.
She spoke about how it was an honor to call herself the Yugen Eternity Champion. She let it be known that she was quite aware what it meant to hold the belt, that only the best in the company could say that. Milena then looked over at Kagami. Ms. LeCavalier stated that she might have doubted Kagami’s prowess during the build up to the match. She didn’t any longer. Milena said she understood why people flocked to her, why everyone called her the ace…
The ace that she’d just beaten.
Yugen’s fans didn’t really like that comment, not all the way. But Milena remained unbothered.
She told Kagami to get better and climb the ranks agained. She looked forward to doing battle once more. And even though Kagami was hurt, she saw a smirk come to her face.
Milena then exited the ring. Kagami lay on the ring apron for a few more moments before she rolled back into the ring. She said that she wanted to say something. Kagami began to thank all of the Yugen fans that had supported her throughout her jo―
Her words were cut off just as abruptly as that sentence.
In the blink of an eye, those four masked women appeared and clocked Kagami in the back of the head. I looked to the entryway, waiting for the new security team to break things up. But they never arrived. I didn’t know it at the time, but those four women had decimated the security team backstage…
There was no cavalry.
Kagami received a gang-style beating for about thirty seconds. That’s when one of the women left the ring and grabbed a chair. She positioned it on the ring apron. Kagami was dropped with a powerbomb and then rolled onto the apron. She was then picked up by the woman who’d done the talking last time. She glared into the camera for a moment before she picked the ace up―that woman then crushed Kagami’s skull with a jumping piledriver.
Kagami fell to the floor.
She didn’t move. She didn’t even respond when the medics arrived.
And the group? They looked so proud of what they’d done. It was enraging to watch. I nearly slid in the ring myself, but Aunt Michi stopped me. She told me that she knew it was hard, but I couldn’t make any hasty decisions.
And so I watched on in anger as the night came to a close.
