[I ain’t gonna eat, I ain’t gonna sleep
Ain’t gonna breathe, til I see, what I wanna see
And what I wanna see, is you go to sleep, in the dirt
Permanently, you just being hurt, this ain’t gonna work
For me, it just wouldn’t be, sufficient enough
Cuz we, are just gonna be, enemies
As long as we breathe, I don’t ever see, either of us
Coming to terms, where we can agree
There ain’t gonna be, no reasoning, speakin wit me
You speak on my seed, then me, no speak-a ingles
So we gonna beef, and keep on beefin, unless
You’re gonna agree, to meet with me in the flesh
And settle this face to face, and you’re gonna see
A demon unleashed in me, that you’ve never seen
And you’re gonna see, this gangster beat on himself
I see you D-12, and thanks, but me need no help
Me do this one all by my lonely, I don’t need fifteen of my homies
When I see you, I’m seeing you, me and you only
We never met, but best believe you gon know me
When I’m this close, to see you exposed as phony
Come on, bitch, show me, pick me up, throw me
Lift me up, hold me, just like you told me
You was gonna do, that’s what I thought, you’re pitiful
I’m rid of you, all of you, Ja, you’ll get it too!
Now go to sleep bitch!
Die, motherfucker, die! Ugh, time’s up, bitch, close ya eyes
Go to sleep, bitch! (what?)
Why are you still alive? How many times I gotta say, close ya eyes?
And go to sleep bitch! (what?)
Die motherfucker die, bye, bye, motherfucker, bye, bye!
Go to sleep bitch! (what?)
Why are you still alive? Why, die motherfucker, ah, ah, ah…
…Go to sleep bitch!
Hey dog, I’ma walk like a beast, talk like the streets
I’ma stay blazin New York wit the heat
Stalk on the beat, walk wit my feet
Understand my pain, the rain ain’t sleet
Peep how I’m moving, peep where I’m going
Shit don’t seep, then sleep not knowin
But I’ma keep growing, getting larger than life
Easy-going with the same one that started the fight
He be knowing how dog get, when dog gon bite
Tried to show him the dog shit, it’s dog for life
Grand champ, and my Blood Line is tight
Cuz it’s all good, it’s all right
tried to holla, but couldn’t holla back
Now they gots to swallow, everything in the sac
Blood Line, and, we can go track for track
Damn dog, why’d you have to do them like that?]
‘Go To Sleep’ by DMX, Eminem and Obie Trice hits the sound system, and the fans rise to their feet as the arena is illuminated with red and yellow fireworks shooting up back and forth along the entrance ramp like machine gun fire. Four red fireworks explode up into the air, one from each ring post and they burst into a great red explosion above the centre of the ring to the delight of the crowd who are on their feet cheering before any Dynasty Wrestler has even come out.
The promotional video for DW Highway To Hell then begins to play on the DW-Tron, and on the screens of millions of fans watching worldwide.
A couple of stagehands are shown backstage reminiscing about various things, and sipping on coffee, when all of an entrance door to the Compaq Centre swings open and in walks Sean Manning to the displeasure of the fans. They boo and taunt him, as he walks into the building and past the stagehands. He wears black Levi’s jeans, a pair of white and blue Nike basketball shoes, a white Miami Hurricanes hat, and a shirt that says “What Have The Fans Ever Done For You?”. Once the people in the building read his shirt they erupt in a chorus of boos. Manning continues toward the locker room area, as the scene fades.

Holly cheers from outside of the ring as Darkhan swings his big arm looking for a clothesline on Stevens, however the quicker lighter Stevens ducks under the arm of Darkhan and bounces off of the opposite ropes. Darkhan hardly has any time to react as Stevens dropkicks him in the leg on the comeback.
Darkhan drops to one knee, presenting a perfect opportunity for Stevens to unload a hat trick of big punches to the face of Darkhan to get him down on the floor. Stevens quickly jumps on the upper body of Darkhan with a knee drop and then begins pounding away with mounted piston like punches. The crowd react angrily to Stevens’ domination of Darkhan, but Stevens blocks out the crowds as he is forced to do in many of his matches as he decides to bring Darkhan up to his feet. Stevens quickly runs Darkhan into the nearest corner, and stomps down with well-aimed kicks at his upper body.
A ‘Stevens’ Sucks’ chant echo’s around the arena as Stevens takes a few steps back before jumping up to the second rope and hooking Darkhan’s lowered head under his arm, Stevens then falls back with a DDT on Darkhan out of the corner. A few of the fans break rank to cheer for the impressive move, and others continue to boo Stevens. Jason Stevens quickly hooks the tree trunk like leg of Darkhan to make the cover.
Darkhan powers out of the cover sending Stevens’ flying which prompts cheers from the crowd.

Darkhan toys with Stevens a bit before nailing him with a huge ‘Dark Judgement’! The crowd explode into cheers for the huge impact move on Stevens and it looks as if Stevens could be down for the count, Darkhan however doesn’t go for the cover, and pulls Stevens back up.
Stevens is wobbly on his feet as the crowd go crazy as Darkhan locks on the ‘D-Day’ on Stevens! Stevens tries to put up some resistance, but after a few seconds of the devastating submission hold, Stevens is forced to tapout. The fans go crazy as the bell rings and the referee tries to get Darkhan to release the hold on Stevens. Darkhan eventually lets go and lets Stevens back up to his feet as ‘Immortal’ begins to play over the sound system again. Darkhan holds the rope down for Holly to enter the ring, before the referee raises his hand in the air in victory. With Darkhan overcoming the first line of defence laid down by DW Boss Jon Page, what’s next for the man that because of his contract is sooner or later is going to have to be granted a World Title Shot?

Winners of the match and NEW Tag Team Champions, Sinister Konnection (26:50)
As the Highway to Hell theme music fades out, the scene fades in, it shows a shot of DW Owner Jon Page’s office, where he sits, feet resting on his desk, and donut in hand. Page is laying back and enjoying the action that his very DW has to offer in the form of Highway to Hell. Suddenly the door is thrust open and in walks Sean Manning. He still carries his duffle bag, as he came right to Page’s office before going to his locker room.
“Hey Sean, what’s happening bro?”
“Well, I was thinking about this on the way to the arena, and well, I feel it’s a fitting idea for the circumstances. What I am thinking, is that since Blackhawk so rudely decided to cut me for many stitches on Destruction with his steel pipe, what if you made our match, a street fight?!”
The fans cheer at the suggestion of the stipulation.
“Well, that’s an interesting idea to say the least, and I’d without a doubt enjoy seeing you beat Blackhawk into the ring canvas with various weapons, so I’ll tell ya what, I’m going to grant you the match…”
The fans cheer as Manning smiles, Page and Manning shake hands, and Manning gets ready to leave but Page won’t let go…
“Sean… see to it, that you not only win this match, but that Blackhawk cannot walk come tomorrow.”
Page and Manning smirk evilly as the scene fades.

The crowd boo Death as he strokes his beard as he smiles waiting for T-Money to struggle up to his feet. Death kicks T-Money right in the stomach winding the Champion, before pulling him right back up and racking his eyes. The referee can do nothing about it under the rules of the match as Death knocks T-Money down once again with a head butt to the back of T-Money’s head.
Death however does not go for the submission move, he rolls out of the ring and walks over to the announcers position. The announcer question Death on his actions, but he just ignores them and grabs hold of a steel-folding chair. Death slides back into the ring and turns around in preparation to hit T-Money, but T-Money kicks the chair back in Death’s face! The crowd pop as Death stumbles backwards allowing T-Money to rise back up to his feet. T-Money quickly walks up to Death and hooks him up in a front face lock while he is holding his face from the chair shot.
T-Money pulls Death straight up in the air in a vertical suplex position, but then drops him down on his head with the ‘Thugged Out’. The crowd pop for T-Money as he stalks Death signalling for the ‘Harlem Death lock’. Death slowly begins to get up to his feet, but as T-Money pounces with the finishing move, Death goes behind with a waist lock on T-Money and hits him with a shot to the back of the head. T-Money stumbles forward a little and Death locks on the ‘Harlem Death lock’ on the originator of the move, T-Money! T-Money manages to struggle out of the hold with a ‘stunner’ type move on Death, Death drops to the floor and T-Money staggers into the corner.
Death gets to his feet and T-Money runs at him looking for a clothesline, Death ducks under the clothesline, and then catches T-Money with a flapjack as he turns around to go for the move again. T-Money’s head bounces off of the steel chair. As T-Money holds his head in pain, Death takes the chance and locks on a sharpshooter on T-Money! The crowd boo Death as T-Money, now bleeding heavily from the head tries to struggle closer to the ropes, T-Money etches closer and closer, but as he is within a hair’s breath away Death pulls him out of the ropes and back into the centre of the ring. T-Money tries to fight out even more, but Death pulls right back on his legs and T-Money is forced to TapOut after being locker in the hold for a very long time.
The crowd boo as Death’s hand is raised in the air by the referee as the timekeeper fetches the belt. Death is presented with the Championship belt by the referee, but as he is T-Money nails him down with a steel chair shot to the back of the head! T-Money stands over the New TapOut Champion with a look of disgust on his face as he clenches the steel chair in his hand.
Ring Announcer: Winner of the match and New TapOut Champion, Death (21:38)
Change of Plan…
Backstage in the plush office of Jon Page, the man himself is sitting discussing tonight’s plans with new found friend Shawn Storm. Storm is dressed for combat with tonight’s Hardcore Title Ironman match with Kore not far away. Page is wearing a white and blue chequered shirt and blue jeans. Suddenly there is a knock at the door, and in barges Tim Smith with DW Camera crew.
Smith – “Hey Jon, you mind if we come in here and ask a few questions?”
Page – “Actually yeah Smith I do, you know I’m a busy guy on most nights, then you come in here on a PPV night and expect me just to give you a little interview at the drop of a hat? Smith you go and sit over their in the corner and just wait your turn.”
An embarrassed Tim Smith walks over and sits in a chair in the corner as his camera crew snicker at him. Storm and Page turn back to each other and continue their conversation despite the presence of cameras.
Storm – “So yeah as I was saying, I’ve just had a few problems with me knee, so that 60 minute thing against Kore, I don’t think its going to happen. It shouldn’t matter anyway because I would have had him finished off within five, but there is always that 0.01% chance that Kore could actually come here tonight and do some damage, so I think its best that we just reduce that match to a normal match.”
Page – “Yeah sure man, you know best.”
Storm – “Yeah I’m glad you see it that way. Oh and one other thing while we are on the subject, I know its for a Hardcore Title belt and everything, but Shawn Storm in a Hardcore rules match? I don’t see that happening, could that really be down to the number one player in this industry? I think not, maybe just a normal rules match would be an improvement.”
Page – “Consider it done Shawn.”
Storm – “Ok nice one, can’t wait to see Gillesp in his little match tonight, watching him get slapped about is almost as fun as doing it yourself, I should know I’ve done it a fair few times.”
Storm and Page shake hands as Storm leaves the office. As Storm leaves, Smith comes over for a few words with Page.
Smith – “You’ve reduced the stipulations in the match tonight between Kore/Storm? Are you sure the fans are going to want this?”
Page – “Tim Smith who is the boss of the multi billion dollar company?”
Smith – “Well you are…”
Page – “Exactly, so that means I am richest and better than all of those snivelling fans out their. They will like what I tell them to like and they will dislike what I tell them to dislike, that the way it works around here. Storm/Kore is going to be another awesome Storm victory, lets not forget that because Kore needs to be put back in his place.”
Smith – “There have been rumours that ever since DW Destiny 2003, there have been guys in the back just waiting to rise up and rebel against your leadership of this company, what do you have to say about that?”
Page – “I have to say there will be serious, very serious repercussions for anyone would decides to do anything like that, just like their will be for you Smith if you don’t get out of my sight right now, Go on get outta here!”
The transmission is cut to static as Page screams at Smith and his camera crew….

The arena light go out, and the fans begin to cheer. The DW-Tron displays the words, “He Walks Amung Us…”, “Here Comes the Pain!”. The fans begin to scream as ‘Adrenaline’, by Gavin Rossdale blasts through the sound system.

Manning reaches under the ring and pulls out a steel pipe, but as he does Blackhawk slides under the bottom rope and comes after Manning.
Manning swings at Blackhawk with the pipe, but Blackhawk ducks under the pipe shot and picks Manning up on his shoulder. Blackhawk then runs with Manning on his shoulder and slams him into the ring post spine first. The crowd pop as Manning lies down on the floor clutching his back. Blackhawk picks up the steel pipe that was going to be used against him by Manning and holds it waiting for Manning to get up to his feet. Manning slowly pulls himself up using the announcers table, but when Manning turns around Blackhawk is straight there to hit him hard in the face with the steel pipe. Manning falls backwards and falls across the announcer’s table holding his head.
The fans cheer as Blackhawk throws down the pipe and climbs up onto the table with Manning. Manning sees Blackhawk coming and quickly gets down from the table to avoid being put through it by Blackhawk. The fans boo Manning’s actions as he tries to mop away the blood from his forehead. Manning sliders back into the ring, and Blackhawk follows after collecting a garbage can from under the ring. Manning runs up and dropkicks Blackhawk causing the garbage can to bounce back into Blackhawk’s face.

Change of Plan…
The scene opens inside the tarnished locker room of of Social Distortion. Slipknot, Slayer, Metallica, Pantera, and MudVayne posters are all over the walls. Suicidal is sitting down on an old couch with Tony Shields talking about his match with Bigg Rigg. Suey picks up a bottle of water, and is about to take a sip when the door opens, and in storms Apocalypse.
Suicidal: Apoc, what’s up? Thought you were going to be thrashing some wise asses back home at Seattle and watch the match on TV.
Apocalypse: Yea, me to man, but then I started to think about what you did on Monday Night, when you burned that Italian flag.
Suicidal: Yea, that was some great shit wasn’t it.
Apocalypse: Well yea, I for one enjoyed seeing, but I’m sure Bigg Rigg didn’t.
Suicidal: Well duh, that was the point man.
Apocalypse: I know, but I think you may have angered him just a little to much. Take it from someone whose half Italian, when you burned those colors, you made yourself a death wish. Bigg Rigg is going to take it to you tonight like neverbefore, he is going to make sure that your put out of action for good.
Suicidal: A death wish is perfect, I mean hey, think about my name! But other than that what are you trying to get to?
Apocalypse: Well I figure, I don’t have a match tonight, and the people need to see more of Apocalypse. They need to know that when they look into my eyes, they are afraid. The locker room needs to learn to respect me.
Suicidal: Ummm, ok…
Apocalypse: So here’s the deal, tonight Apocalypse is going to be out there with you, and weather or not you win, lose, or even if I’m sent to the back during the match, you can bet that after the bell rings, Apocalype is going to rush out to the ring, and Social Distortion is going to send Bigg Rigg a message he won’t soon forget.
The two men display a wicked smile, and laugh out loud.
Suicidal: Sounds like a plan. And one thing is for sure… Tonight we will teach Rigg that Hate… is… Contagious

Death goes under the ring and pulls out a create of beer, the FTA make their way down to the ring and all 5 celebrate drinking beer as Rick holds both his titles in the air as DW Highway To Hell 2003 goes off of the air with the new era of Dynasty Wrestling well and truly in affect.
