Story Interlude - Meanwhile, in Texas...


Houston, Texas

March 30, 2016

11:45 pm




Farrah Hesketh should have been in bed when her phone rang. Instead, she was pouring over the financials for her Queens of American Wrestling promotion, wondering why on earth she didn’t just hire a full-time account to deal with these things. Looking at her net cash flow usually helped her remember that paying an accountant was the reason. Though she needed to get the books in order, and soon, Farrah was glad for the interruption. At least, until she saw who was calling. Farrah felt a bit of a drop in her stomach as she answered. “Hello?”



“Hello, Farrah? Cat Quine. I’m sorry calling so late, but I wanted you to know that I’m hiring one of your girls.”


Farrah pushed the financial statements to the other side of the table and grabbed a notebook. QAW and AAA had signed a working agreement when Cat first took over AAA from Anne Stardust, but for the first three months, no one had invoked the agreement.


“Who are you thinking about, and who are you proposing to send me in return?” Farrah asked. There was a pause on the other end of the line.


“I’m not calling about a talent trade, Farrah. I’m calling because I’m offering a contract to one of your performers.”


The dropping feeling in Farrah’s stomach increased. When Farrah decided to open QAW, she sought Anne Stardust’s blessing before she did. This was because Farrah had seen what had happened with Babes of Sin City, and how even without an outright declaration of war, Anne’s displeasure was enough to sink an all-women promotion. Farrah had decided to open in the East End of Houston for similar reasons. Sure, she talked about how she wanted to incorporate lucha libre into the product and how Houston and the Mid-South region’s Hispanic population made it a more viable product concept, which was all true. But it also meant that Queens of American Wrestling was well outside Anne’s personal fiefdom in the Northwest United States. BSC was close enough for Anne to regard it as an enemy.


But Anne, for all of her possessiveness of the Northwest, never left the Northwest. She seemed content enough as professional wrestling’s Duchess of Seattle. When Anne decided to sell AAA to Cat Quine, Farrah figured Cat would probably keep doing what Anne had done. After all, Cat was Anne’s lieutenant, if one was being kindly; or Anne’s lackey, if one was not inclined toward kindness. Anne could tell Cat to jump, and Cat wouldn’t even need to ask how high - she’d know without asking. But as soon as she officially had control of the company, Cat started running shows in the Midwest. QAW had made sure to stay out of AAA’s way, but now Cat seemed intent on bringing AAA too close to QAW for comfort. If AAA chose to go to war with us at this point, we don’t have the resources. We’d lose, though Farrah. It was a scenario that had kept Farrah Heskath awake on more than one night.


“Who?” asked Farrah.


“Foxy LaRue,” answered Cat.



Crap, thought Farrah. Why Foxy? But Farrah knew exactly why. Foxy was hot fire, maybe the fastest-rising star she had on the roster. She was fundamentally sound, but particularly excelled at knock-down, drag-out visceral brawls that got the audience buzzing. She was good on the mic, with a naturally bold attitude that swept audiences along with her. Foxy was QAW Champion material, Farrah could put the belt on her at any time. Now Cat wanted her.


“Foxy’s one of my best workers, Cat. Listen, we’ve got that working agreement for a reason.”


“We do, Farrah, and I’m glad we do. This isn’t a declaration of war, this isn’t even a declaration of breaking our agreement. Our agreement was that neither one of us would sign each other’s workers to an exclusive contract. And I’m not looking to sign Foxy to an exclusive contract, at all.”


Farrah felt infinitesimally better. “Then why are you calling me?” Farrah heard Cat sigh on the other end of the phone. It was a bad habit of Cat’s, because even when she wasn’t meaning to be condescending or sound exasperated, she easily gave that impression.


“Because...let me be honest, here. The reason I’m hiring Foxy is because USPW came and hired away Sara and J-Ro. They were our top draws, and USPW just took them. Like AAA was rich soil where they had grown and been nurtured, and after we had put so much into developing them, USPW comes and harvests what we had grown. They never called me. They never talked to me. I don’t think they were trying to harm AAA. I don’t think they even really thought about how it would affect us. We’re so far under them that they don’t realize the damage that does. That’s why I’m calling. Because I know how important Foxy is to QAW. Listen, there’s more than enough room in this country for two women’s feds. Yes, I am expanding where we do shows, but as far as I’m concerned, the Mid-South is yours. We won’t run shows on your turf. I want Foxy to keep working for you. It makes her a better performer, and we can both benefit from that.”


Farrah found herself nodding, though no one could see her. Cat certainly had a different way of putting things than Anne; maybe she wasn’t Anne Stardust 2.0 after all. Or maybe she was just as much of a killer as Anne, but she’d shove the knife in your back while she was giving you a hug. “You’re not hiring her just to bury her, are you?”


Cat laughed. “Good god, no! Foxy’s got money written all over her. She’s getting a push, for sure. Which is why I’m offering her a contract, instead of loaning her from you. I have long-term plans for her. And speaking of money...who knows? Maybe getting a paycheck from both of us will be enough that Foxy won’t put a call into the boys in Atlanta?”


“We can hope,” said Farrah. Did she trust Cat Quine? No, she did not. But if Cat was being honest, Foxy would be a star not just in one territory, but in two. Might make her a bigger draw back home in Houston. There was a chance that Cat was right - this could benefit both companies, and in the end, pride only mattered when you were making enough money to keep the lights on. “I mean, it’s not like I need to give you permission to sign Foxy. She’s an independent contractor. Suppose I appreciate the head’s up from you, I appreciate the respect you’re showing me and the company. Just don’t screw me on this. Houston’s a big city, which means it’s got a lot of lawyers looking for work.” Farrah hoped she sensed a grin on the other end of the line.


“Seattle’s the same,” said Cat with a chuckle. “Listen, Farrah, I’m serious when I say I’m glad QAW exists. It’s good for women’s wrestling. You’re bringing legitimacy and new fans to women’s wrestling. I’m...some days, I’m not sure if the ideals Anne preached to us were what she actually believed in, or if it was what we needed to hear so we’d work our asses off for her for pennies. But I believe in those ideals, even if Anne was just blowing smoke. You’re fulfilling those ideals. I hope I am, too.”


Farrah wasn’t sure what to say. “Suppose time will tell. For both of us,” she ventured.


“Suppose it will,” Cat agreed. “I know it’s an hour ahead there - “


“It’s actually two hours,” Farrah corrected. Cat was silent for a moment.


“Really? You’re in the Central Time Zone?”


“Yuuuuuup,” Farrah said, with the tiniest bit of Texas drawl creeping into her voice. Guess I have been here long enough for that to happen...


“Well. Crap. I really thought...well, I’m glad I didn’t wake you. I didn’t wake you, did I?”


Farrah couldn’t help but laugh. “No, Cat, you didn’t.”


"Good. Good. Thanks for picking up the phone.”


“Yeah, thanks for calling and telling me, instead of me reading it on the dirt sheets. Good night, Cat.”


“Good night, Farrah. Good luck down there.”


The line went dead. Farrah had to admit, Cat was charismatic. Trustworthy? Time really would tell. But at least for tonight, Farrah wasn’t going to need to take antacids to maybe get some sleep.

<p>Dark Matches</p><p> </p><p>

Sarah Taylor vs. <strong>Selina Svelte</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Devil's Daughter</strong> vs. Joanna Silver</p><p>

Just a little concern that maybe Joanna's entertainment skills make it tempting to push her despite the limited wrestling skills. But I think DD takes this.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Princess & the Punk</strong> (Sentinel & Higgins) vs. Ariel Breaks & Bobbie McGee</p><p>

I believe in the Princess and the Punk. <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

Main Card</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Cherry Bomb</strong> vs. Katherine Goodlooks</p><p>

Not sure where Cherry is heading, but it would shock me if she stumbled here.</p><p> </p><p>

AAA Top Contender's Championship Match</p><p>

Laura Flame vs. <strong>Foxxy LaRue ©</strong></p><p>

No way Foxxy drops the title on the first defense.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The A-List</strong> vs. Wendy Anderson & Golden Delicious</p><p> </p><p>

Jaime Quine & a Mystery Partner vs. <strong>Lilly & Rose</strong></p><p>

Ok, this is really difficult to predict, but I'll go with team chemistry beats class, to keep the tag teams feel legitimate. It could be part of a "make Jaime look strong" push, but I think her team can eat this loss.</p><p> </p><p>

AAA Femme Fatale Championship Match</p><p>

Suzanne Brazzle vs. <strong>Steph Blake ©</strong></p><p>

The woman that sent York and JRo packing must be made to look strong. She can't lose here, right?</p><p> </p><p>

Bonus Questions</p><p> </p><p>

1. Who will be Jaime Quine's tag partner? Hint - she's an on-roster member of AAA. - <strong>Paige Croft</strong>?</p><p> </p><p>

2. Talia Quinzel suffered a torn quad at Not Just a Pretty Face. She's had surgery done. A successful surgery will drastically reduce her injury time. If the surgery is unsuccessful, Quinzel will be out for an entire year. Will the surgery succeed, or is Quinzel on the shelf until 2017?</p><p>

I've had torn quads i my game, but I don't remember how long they were out... It's still going to be some time. I say <strong>8 months. Edit: For clarity, I think the procedure is successful.</strong></p><p> </p><p>

3. What will the numeric rating for this show be? AAA Not Just a Pretty Face was a 49. I'll go higher. <strong>54.</strong></p>

<p>I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Talia won't be out for too long, but by the sound of it, the injury seems pretty serious. She's one of the young wrestlers that AAA can build around, so hopefully this won't impact her stats in the long-term.</p><p> </p><p>

It seems like this would create a ready-made feud for Foxxy and Selina while Talia heals up, but the timeline might be too long to make that effective.</p><p> </p><p>

Other than that, great show. I don't mind splitting it up into multiple-parts (obviously) because that injury is so important it deserved the extra spotlight.</p><p> </p><p>

Buckner Fieldhouse</p><p>

Fort Richardson, AK</p><p>

April 16, 2016</p><p> </p><p>

Dark Matches</p><p> </p><p>

Sarah Taylor vs. <strong>Selina Svelte</strong></p><p>

What does the future hold for Selina, now that she's lost her partner due to serious injury? <em>Making Ms. Taylor tap out!</em> <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Devil's Daughter</strong> vs. Joanna Silver</p><p>

<em>Learn Joanna, learn!</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Princess & the Punk (Sentinel & Higgins)</strong> vs. Ariel Breaks & Bobbie McGee</p><p>

<em>McGee is best used in these situations, and Simony and Christy should get a nice win to build off of.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Main Card</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Cherry Bomb</strong> vs. Katherine Goodlooks</p><p>

<em>Goodlooks would actually be a decent dark horse to build up to challenge Blake, but I think you will be keeping Cherry strong for now.</em></p><p> </p><p>

AAA Top Contender's Championship Match</p><p>

Laura Flame vs. <strong>Foxxy LaRue ©</strong></p><p>

<em>This should be a hot match. At least I would pay to see it, but I don't know if I would go all the way to Alaska to do so. </em><img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The A-List </strong>vs. Wendy Anderson & Golden Delicious</p><p>

<em>It will be interesting to see the dynamic of the A-List here, but I can't see them losing this.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jaime Quine & a Mystery Partner</strong> vs. Lilly & Rose</p><p>

<em>I'll always be a mark for Jaime, so this is more personal bias overcoming logic. The partner is the key here, but I'll say it's someone strong enough to help Quine pick up the win.</em></p><p> </p><p>

AAA Femme Fatale Championship Match</p><p>

Suzanne Brazzle vs. <strong>Steph Blake ©</strong></p><p>

<em>Should be a fun match, but I think Blake's run has started out strong and there's more story to mine when it comes to her reign. Plus, I like her character more. </em><img alt=":p" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/tongue.png.ceb643b2956793497cef30b0e944be28.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

Bonus Questions</p><p> </p><p>

1. Who will be Jaime Quine's tag partner? Ah, doesn't necessarily have to be a face right? I'll say <strong>Zoe Ammis</strong> as a way of starting a feud with Jaime.</p><p> </p><p>

2. Talia Quinzel suffered a torn quad at Not Just a Pretty Face. She's had surgery done. A successful surgery will drastically reduce her injury time. If the surgery is unsuccessful, Quinzel will be out for an entire year. Will the surgery succeed, or is Quinzel on the shelf until 2017? This is just wishful thinking, but I'll say it's <strong>successful</strong> and she's out 6 months.</p><p> </p><p>

3. What will the numeric rating for this show be? I'll say <strong>52</strong>, with a hotter main event than last show.</p>

AAA The Lass Frontier - April 16, 2016


The live feed for The Lass Frontier opens with a short spotlight on Talia Quinzel’s recovery from injury. Quinzel’s surgery was a success, as the tear was found to only be a partial tear, not a full tear, putting her on track to come back sooner than the year that was feared when the injury happened. (Angle Rating - 23)


The audiences who came early got to see three short matches that aren’t part of the live feed. The first match saw Talia Quinzel’s tag partner Selina Svelte defeat an overmatched Sarah Taylor by submission. Devil’s Daughter took out her recent frustrations in a victory over the charismatic but not quite physically imposing Joanna Silver. The final pre-show match saw Simony Sentinel and Christy Higgins, the team of the Princess and the Punk, defeat Ariel Breaks and Bobbie McGee in a fast-paced, high-flying affair.


(In a pre-show bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Selina Svelte defeated Sarah Taylor in 4:49 by submission with a Prawn Armlock. Match rating - 41.)


(In a pre-show bout that didn't have much heat and terrible wrestling, Devil's Daughter defeated Joanna Silver in 4:33 by submission with a Going Down Below. Match rating - 39.)


(In a pre-show bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Sentinel & Higgins defeated Ariel Breaks and Bobbie McGee in 9:13 when Simony Sentinel defeated Ariel Breaks by pinfall with a Sentinel Strike. Match rating - 31.)


Those who watch the show feed online get an extra vignette.


In an old log cabin somewhere in the Pacific Northwest


A woman in black robes cradles a battered and dirty baby doll in her arms. Her hands are unnaturally white, and are the only part of her body that’s visible. A cowl covers her head, and shadows completely obscure her face. She sings to the baby doll.


"Hush, little baby, don't say a word,

Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird.


And if that mockingbird don't sing,

Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.


And if that diamond ring turns brass,

Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass.


And if that looking glass is broke,

Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat,


And if that billy goat won't pull,

Mama's gonna buy you a cart and a bull.


And if that cart and bull turn over,

Mama's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.


And if that dog named Rover won't bark,

Mama's gonna buy you a horse and a cart.


And if that horse and cart fall down,

you'll still be the sweetest little baby in town."


The song ended, she whispers to the doll. “I hear you, baby. I hear you, my child. You cry out for your mother. Don't worry. Mommy’s coming.”


The show feed begins with AAA’s broadcast team of Cat Quine and Jim Lou Freebush.



“Good evening everyone, and welcome to The Lass Frontier! We’re coming to you from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson just outside beautiful Anchorage, Alaska!” Jim proclaims.


“This is going to be an exciting night, Jim,” says Cat, with a smooth transition “Not only because of the excellent matches we have on tap tonight, but we are also excited to say that we’re celebrating a first tonight - the first show AAA has held in the great state of Alaska!”


Two weeks ago, in Cat Quine’s Office



“Alaska. You booked a show in Alaska.” Cherry Bomb’s voice was flat, as if she couldn’t quite believe the words coming out of her mouth. “You do realize it’s winter until June up there, right? And that it’s only April?”


“You remember when I told you I was looking into non-traditional venues?”




“Well, I made some inquiries to various military bases. Turns out they’re starved for entertainment in Alaska.”


“That’s because it’s Alaska, Cat.”


“I know, Sharie, I know. But I thought - this could be a great opportunity. For one, we know no one’s competing with us up there. And secondly, when those soldiers get transferred or go back to wherever home is when their service time is up, they’ll go all over the country. Talk us up, nationwide, if we can make some fans.”


Cherry bit her lip. “Do you know what I hate about you, Cat?” she said, jovially.


“I don’t have time to sit here all afternoon as you list them all off, Sharie, so what’s the thing you hate about me at this particular moment?”


“What I hate right now, is your ability to make even stupid and terribly inconvenient ideas sound completely reasonable.”


The strains of

fill the Buckner Fieldhouse. Cat rolls her eyes. “Unfortunately, we all know what that means - we’re about to be ‘graced’ with the presence of our Femme Fatale champion, the Queen of Mean, Steph Blake.”



Blake walks to the ring with her nose in the air, as if she smelled something sour. When she gets in the ring, she holds her hand out, expecting a microphone. It comes, but a bit too late for Blake’s liking. She shoots the hapless ring tech a look that, if it could kill, would have killed the poor tech five times over. Composing herself, she addresses the audience. “We know you Americans barely know your own history, much less anything beyond it, so we’ll talk slow. Do try to keep up. Throughout history, monarchs are most vulnerable at the beginning of our reigns, before we have been able to consolidate our power and fully impose our will. Two weeks ago, a would-be usurper thought she was our equal and tried to take our throne. But we prevailed, confirming our superiority. There can be no doubt now - we are no fluke! We are no accident! We are, and we always have been, inevitable! And now that we have our throne, we dare any pretender to try and take what is our very birthright!”


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Q2Oh3mlGHEc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Clearly someone is ready to take Blake up on her implicit challenge, as “Mysterious Ways” fills the arena. “It appears Suzanne Brazzle was listening in the back,” notes Jim.


“I have to be honest with you, Jim, if I was one of the girls in the back, I would probably put on a set of noise-cancelling headphones if I saw Steph Blake with a microphone. But let’s see what Suzanne Brazzle has to say - anything has to be better than this self-important bragging!”



Blake looks incensed, clearly trying and generally failing to keep her temper under control. Brazzle - still sporting bruises from her hellacious “I Quit” match with Tracy Brendon two weeks ago - enters the ring with a confident swagger. “Steph, I remember when you first got here. You had a crappy attitude then. I thought, maybe with some time, you might grow up a little, grow out of it. Unfortunately, I was wrong on that count. You’ve only gotten worse over the years. I should have tried to instill a little humility into you back then...but what’s past is past. Let’s talk about tonight. Let’s talk about sending you a message. You think you’re the queen? We don’t do royalty in this country. You, me, that championship, tonight!” The crowd cheers the idea.


Blake is steaming. “Shut up! Shut up, you miserable peons!” Blake turns her attention on Brazzle. “You know what has been bothering us, Suzanne? What has bothered us is that you have defeated us in the past. When we were but young, not fully formed as we are today. It bothers us that you might thus hold illusions that you are our better. But we have no betters. We are, by birth, by breeding, and by this title - “ she says, pointing to the Femme Fatale championship around her waist, “ - the superior of every woman in this company. We will grant you a chance to take this from us, Suzanne - only because we will enjoy humiliating you.” Blake drops her microphone, daintly, as if it were a soiled handkerchief. (Angle rating - 54)


“Strong words from our champion, Cat.”


“I have to give a teeny tiny sliver of respect to Steph Blake for being a fighting champion,” says Cat. “Just don’t let her know that I gave her anything remotely resembling a compliment. Clearly, she doesn’t need her ego inflated any more than it already is. We’ll have that match later tonight, all you Angels out there, but we’ve got a whole card’s worth of action for you tonight!”


The proto-punk strains of the Runaways’

blare over the loudspeakers. “That’s right, Cat, and kicking off the in-ring action tonight is the ever-explosive Cherry Bomb, taking on Katherine Goodlooks, half of the already legendary tag team Good Lookin’ Bunny.”



Cherry grabs a microphone as she enters the ring. Before the music can be stopped, she begins speaking, or more accurately, ranting. “Goodlooks! Gooooooodloooooooks! Come out to plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! But first, you better think about what your new name is going to be, because when I’m done with you, nobody’s ever going to want to call you Goodlooks again! Here, I’ll help you with that. How about Katherine Hideous? Katherine Smashedface? Katherine the Mangled? Katherine of the Rearranged Face? You better take every mirror in your house down as soon as you get out of the hospital after I’m through with you, unless you want to be reminded every day of that terrible moment your path crossed mine. GET OUT HERE SO I CAN END YOU.” (Angle Rating - 87)

Cherry Bomb vs. Katherine Goodlooks


To her credit, Katherine Goodlooks emerges from behind the curtain as upbeat as ever. Unfortunately, a positive attitude is no match for the sheer power and beserker rage of Cherry Bomb. Goodlooks is only able to get in some weak offense before Cherry Bomb ends the match with authority, dropping Goodlooks with a devastating Cherry Bomb powerbomb. The three-count afterwards is merely academic as Cherry Bomb again lays waste to another AAA competitor.





(In a decent match, Cherry Bomb defeated Katherine Goodlooks in 8:11 by pinfall with a Cherry Bomb. Match rating - 58)


“Another dominant victory by Cherry Bomb,” notes Freebush.


“Absolutely, Jim. Honestly, the only person to give Cherry Bomb a run for her money this year so far has been, and I’m trying to be objective as I can be, Jaime Quine, my stepsister. I honestly believe Jaime would have won that ladder match. That said, a victory like this one tonight, you can’t deny that. Speaking of my stepsister, I’m getting word general manager Cat Jemson has commandeered one of our camera operators, and it has something to do with Jaime.”


Backstage at AAA The Lass Frontier



Jaime Quine walks into Cat Jemson’s office. “Cat, you wanted to see me?” Jaime asks, clearly trying, and only partially succeeding, in masking her annoyance.



Cat Jemson smiles a disingenuous, beauty pageant smile. “Yes, Jaime, I did. Listen, this thing between you and Cherry Bomb and Devil’s Daughter? I get it, you’re all competitors wanting to prove something, and I respect that,” she says, in a way that indicates she neither gets nor respects the sentiment. “But things have just been getting too hot between the three of you. Several weeks in a row, the problems between all of you have caused problems for me. Clearly, I need to establish some consequences around here, to ensure these things don’t continue to happen. Which is why I am putting you in a match between our Tag Team Champions, Kate Lilly and Debbie Rose, tonight!”


Jaime stands aghast for a moment. “Wait, what? Cherry and DD came in here and intimidated you into giving them what they want, and you’re putting me into a handicap match?”


Cat waves her hands in front of her face. “Oh, no, no. Well, maybe. It doesn’t have to be a handicap match. I’m giving you until the match starts to find a partner. If you don’t find one...well, then, yes. It’s a handicap match. Listen, Jaime, this is nothing personal about you - but it has to be made clear to everyone on this roster that you have to remain professional.”


Jaime is clearly steaming, but holding back. “Oh, I get it. You’re embarrassed that you got punked out, but you’re still too scared of Cherry Bomb and Devil’s Daughter to take it out on them, so you’re going to take it out on me.” She scoffs. “I would be angry, but mostly, I just feel pity for how truly sad you are.” Cat scowls and looks like she’s going to say something, but Jaime interrupts. “Let me rephrase - I am angry, Cat, and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.” Cat sits back in her seat, the scowl disappearing immediately. “But you see, lucky for you, I am a professional. And it doesn’t matter what you throw in my way, I’ll get over one way or another.” Jaime leaves the office. Cat Jemson exhales deeply, keeping an eye on the door to make sure Jaime isn’t coming right back. (Angle Rating - 44)



The feed returns to the ring as Foxxy LaRue

for her first AAA Top Contender’s title defense. “AAA, what’s going down? It’s time to welcome your brand-new Top Contender’s Champion, the foxiest lady in AAA, Foxxy LaRue!” Foxxy comes out, mic in hand, stunner shades complementing the belt around her waist. “Now, I ain’t never been in Alaska. I’m a Texas girl, I ain’t used to all this cold! How do y’all handle it up here?” The crowd chuckles, and hoots a bit in local pride. “Far as I can tell, y’all are some tough sons of guns around here! Especially all y’all in uniform,” Foxxy says, getting the easy pop from the base personnel in attendance. “Well, in front of a buncha tough guys and gals like y’all, I ain’t going to embarrass myself in front of you! Laura Flame, y’all is legit tough, but Foxxy LaRue is going to show ya she’s fireproof!” (Angle Rating - 52)





Laura Flame (Challenger) vs. Foxxy LaRue (Champion)


Laura Flame proves to be a solid test for Foxxy in her first title defense. Laura’s martial arts training is able to keep Foxxy and her street-fighting brawler style at bay, getting in some offense as well. Foxxy keeps coming, however, and it becomes clear that Flame’s not going to win a battle of attrition. Foxxy clotheslines Flame to the outside and follows her, only to get a face full of ring bell from a frustrated Flame. The referee immediately signals for the bell, which of course isn’t literally possible at the moment. Nevertheless, Foxxy LaRue wins by disqualification in her first Top Contender title defense.





(In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Foxxy LaRue defeated Laura Flame in 9:07 when Laura Flame was intentionally disqualified. Foxxy LaRue makes defence number 1 of her AAA Top Contender's title. Match rating - 47.)


Despite taking the loss - or perhaps because of it - Flame continues to bash Foxxy LaRue with the ring bell. Each time she connects, a dull metallic clang sounds. The referee pulls Flame off Foxxy, which gives Foxxy an opening to leap at Flame. Event security comes down and manages to separate the two women after some difficulty. Each woman is taken to the backstage area via different paths.


“Probably not how Foxxy LaRue wanted to earn her first title defense, Cat, but nevertheless she gets the win tonight.”


“Definitely, Jim,” replies Cat Quine. “Foxxy’s a real competitor, and you know she would much rather win by pinfall or submission than disqualification. Very disappointing, Laura Flame’s behavior. She took her best shot and it wasn’t enough to beat Foxxy, so she decided that if she couldn’t win, she’d do a number on Foxxy instead.” (Angle Rating - 27)


The feed cuts to Demelza Wade and Nadia Snow walking into General Manager Cat Jemson’s office.


Backstage at AAA The Lass Frontier



Jemson is looking at herself in a hand mirror and doesn’t seem to notice them. Wade makes a loud, obvious not-cough to get Jemson’s attention. Jemson doesn’t startle, and takes a moment longer to stare at herself - and to make the A-List wait. “Oh, hello, Demelza. Nadia. Do you need something?”



The A-Listers look at each other, a silent message passing between them, before Wade speaks. “Yeah, what the crap, Cat? We go away for a while, attending SXSW and then hitting up Cancun, like we told you about months ago, and when we come back, everything’s changed on us!”


“Yeah, Cat, it’s not fair!” adds Nadia.


Cat lets out a mirthful, malicious chuckle. “It’s not fair? Oh, girls. Listen, I know we go way back, and you’re still totally my besties. But Steph Blake was here. You weren’t. I’m all about opportunities, and a big part of opportunity is showing up. That’s how I became general manager. That’s why Steph Blake is Femme Fatale champion.” Cat absentmindedly pulls out a nail file and stops paying active attention to Blake and Snow. “Besides, I gave you a chance before you took your little vacation, and you two couldn’t get the job done.”


The A-List are flabbergasted that the casual disregard of their formerly staunch ally. “We were this close, Cat, and you know it,” says Wade. “Listen, you think we’re not up to the task? That we’re suddenly on the B-List? Fine. We’ll prove it to you. Give us a match, right now, and we’ll show you that we are still the alpha females in this organization!”


Jemson theatrically sighs. “Fine. You want to prove y’all are still headliners? Go on out there and beat...let’s see...how about Golden Delicious and Wendy Anderson? You think you can do that?” She arches an eyebrow.


Wade scoffs. “Can we do that?” She turns to Snow. “Can we do that?”


Snow scoffs in return. “Um, yeah? Of course we can!”


No one says anything for a moment. The sound of nails being filed fills the silence. Jemson finally looks up. “Um, yeah, then go on and get out of my office and go do it!” The A-List are taken aback, but comply. Jemson rolls her eyes as they leave, then goes back to her nail maintenance. (Angle Rating - 55)


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VbrfXDFuzu0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Golden Delicious and Wendy Anderson are already waiting in the ring when a familiar drum roll heralds the coming of AAA’s resident superstars, at least in their own minds, the A-List.


http://i.imgur.com/VcZ3dx5.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/AWOWtpe.jpg vs. http://i.imgur.com/dmZuyG1.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/PVM1Kw9.jpg

The A-List (Demelza Wade & Nadia Snow) vs. Golden Delicious & Wendy Anderson


The A-List come out motivated in this match - not because they have something to prove, because they believe they don’t need to do such, but out of a sense of wounded pride that someone would even think they might need to prove themselves. Golden Delicious and Wendy Anderson might both be Cat’s Lair graduates, but that pales in comparison to the second-nature teamwork and the chip on their shoulders exhibited by Wade and Snow. The A-List want to end the match early, but Anderson and Delicious are veterans and don’t fall for any obvious traps. However, veteran or not, grabbing a handful of tights is a tried-and-true edge, which is exactly how Wade puts Delicious down for a quick three count off a roll up.





(In a decent match, The A-List defeated Golden Delicious and Wendy Anderson in 12:52 when Demelza Wade defeated Golden Delicious by pinfall with a handful of tights. Match rating - 52)


The feed cuts to Selina Svelte in the catering area, counting out twenty-dollar bills.


Backstage at AAA The Lass Frontier



“...$400, 20, 40, 60, 80, and $500,” she says, handing the money over to Laura Flame. “And I appreciate your services. Talia appreciates your services. And hopefully ”



Flame looks over the bills. “If you want them again, it’ll be another $500. At least another $500. Depends on if I'm feeling charitable.” She walks away, leaving Selina looking supremely satisfied. (Angle Rating - 31)


The feed cuts to the A-List in their private locker room - as befits stars of their caliber. Despite their earlier win, however, Wade and Snow do not appear happy.


Backstage at AAA The Lass Frontier



“I can’t believe Jemson made us go do that! We are stars, we don’t have to ‘prove ourselves’ like the rabble have to do,” complains Snow.



“Well, Nadia, she did, and thanks to me, we jumped Jemson’s little hurdle,” snaps Wade. “And might I remind you, it was you that suggested we go to that stupid convention. I should have known better than to ever let you talk me into stepping foot in Texas.” Wade shivers with disgust.


“Whoa, hold on, wait a second. Two things. One, you didn’t win that match all by yourself, Demelza. You got the pin, sure, but you didn’t fight a handicap match. And two, it’s not like I twisted your arm to make you go,” says Snow.


“Yeah, well, Nadia, because of you, I missed a shot to end that pathetic B-lister Joanne Rodriguez. Because I wasn’t here, I missed a shot to become AAA Femme Fatale champion again.”


Snow lets loose a small laugh. “You missed your shot? Jemson might have given me the title match, you know.”


“As if!”


Snow looks genuinely hurt. “What’s that supposed to mean?”


Wade takes a moment to register Snow’s expression, then says, “All I’m saying, Nadia, is that I’ve already been Femme Fatale champion once. If Jemson was going to pick one of us to pry the belt off that corn-fed, white-bread Sara Marie York, you’d have to favor the person who’s already gotten the job done before, right?”


Snow’s lip curls. “I...guess you’re right.”


Wade beams. “Of course I’m right! Now, come on. I know better than to believe anything resembling civilization exists in this godforsaken state, but I do have everything we need for Manhattans at the hotel. Maybe we can drink enough to forget we’re in Alaska.” (Angle Rating - 58)


“That’s something we haven’t seen before - some friction between the A-List,” notes Freebush.


“It couldn’t happen to nicer people,” Cat replies. “Folks, we’ve already got our AAA tag team champions, Kate Lilly and Debbie Rose, in the ring. Our general manager decided Jaime was somehow responsible for Cherry Bomb’s recent...interactions, shall we say, with Jemson. Interactions where Jemson was hopefully wearing her brown pants, based on the way she reacted when face to face with Cherry Bomb. If Jaime hasn’t found a tag partner, she’s going to have to face one of AAA’s greatest tag teams all by herself.”


“And here comes Jaime now!”



The crowd cheers as Jaime Quine emerges from backstage. Jaime looks confident, particularly for someone who’s facing a sanctioned two-on-one match. Jaime enters the ring and asks for a mic. “Cat Jemson, our leader - I can’t say ‘fearless’ or ‘benevolent’ and stay honest - gave me the task of finding a partner during the show. Now, a lot of people already had or have matches tonight. Can’t ask them. Some folks, I figure I could just stab myself in the back and save them the trouble, if I ask them to team with me.” Lilly and Rose nod, sporting wicked grins at the idea of having the numbers advantage. “But there was one person, who when I found her, said she had been looking for me the whole time. Someone who is ready, no matter how much or how little notice she receives. And I am proud to have her as my teammate tonight. Paige, come on out and let’s do this!”



The industrial soul mash-up that signals the imminent arrival of AAA’s Tiny Terminator, the Machine, Paige Croft fills the arena to a good pop from the audience. Lilly and Rose immediately go to the referee to frantically plead their case, to no avail. Croft walks to the ring, quickly but without hurry, methodically but not slowly, with a face clear of expression, except for a glimmer of pleasure at the idea of twisting Lilly and Rose into flower chains. (Angle Rating - 46)


http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/F4Wr0uD.jpg vs. http://i.imgur.com/Lz8zst8.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/ftiHnYI.jpg

Jaime Quine & Paige Croft vs. Lilly & Rose (Kate Lilly & Debbie Rose)


Lilly and Rose show why they’re tag team champions early in this non-title contest, as their experience from years of tagging together helps to isolate Jaime Quine, preventing her from making the tag. Both women take full advantage of post-tag five counts to legally double team Jaime, making frequent tags to lay in two-woman damage as possible. But just as it seems Lilly and Rose has Jaime Quine right where they want her, Jaime lands a massive K.O. Kick square to the jaw of Debbie Rose. Both women collapse, both in desperate need of a tag. It becomes an agonizingly slow crawl to each corner, Lilly nearly bouncing out her boots imploring Rose to make the tag, while Croft simply holds out her hand with a look of anticipation on her face. Finally, both women lunge at their respective corners, and both women manage to tag their partners in.


Croft immediately sends Lilly crashing to the mat with a drop toe hold, and starts to set up a Memphis Cloverleaf. Lilly wisely scrambles to the ropes, holding onto the bottom rope for dear life. The referee forces Croft to release the attempted hold, giving Lilly time to send a straight kick from the ground into Croft’s knee. It’s enough to tremble Croft, and Lilly immediately goes to work on the knee. Croft proves agile and resilient, however, and she managed to turn an attempted kick to the knee into a dragon screw. Limping slightly, Croft makes the tag to a rested, if not fully so, Jaime Quine.


Quine runs into the ring as Rose tags back in, and starts building up momentum. Quine unloads stiff strikes, both fists and feet, against Rose, who seems to be reeling from the onslaught. After one particularly nasty combination, Rose’s hands are dropped, leaving her wide open for Quine’s second K.O. Kick of the night. Rose ragdolls to the canvas. Unfortunately, Jaime is unable to make the pinfall, as she is leveled by a lariat to the back of the head, courtesy of Cherry Bomb.





(In a decent match, Paige Croft and Jaime Quine defeated Lilly & Rose in 16:05 when Kate Lilly was disqualified when Cherry Bomb ran in and attacked Jaime Quine. During the match we also had Devil's Daughter run in and attack Quine. Match rating - 57)


Devil’s Daughter - Cherry Bomb’s crony as of late - slides into the ring immediately after Cherry and the two women lay boots into Jaime Quine...at least until a massive chop block by Paige Croft sends Devil’s Daughter crashing to the canvas. Cherry Bomb stops her assault as Paige Croft puts DD into an ankle lock. DD starts tapping, but Croft doesn’t let go until she’s stared directly at Cherry Bomb for several seconds. Infuriated but knowing when to cut her losses, Cherry backs out of the ring. Croft releases DD, pushing her out of the ring with her feet. Croft returns and helps Jaime Quine get to her feet. Both women glare as Cherry Bomb and Devil’s Daughter go behind the curtain. (Angle Rating - 47)


“There’s something Jaime hasn’t had all through this feud with Cherry Bomb and her henchwoman Devil’s Daughter - someone to watch her back,” says Cat Quine, clearly relieved by the turn of events.”And not just anyone - she may be small, but Paige Croft may be the single most dangerous woman in AAA.”


“I agree, Cat. You have to think, if this marks the beginning of an alliance between Jaime and Paige, that it could be the tipping point in terms of the ongoing bad blood between Jaime and Cherry Bomb.” Freebush is cut off by the bombastic, yet elegant, strains of “Pomp and Circumstance.”


“Speaking of the balance of power, right now the prestige of the AAA Femme Fatale championship lies around the waist of the Queen of Mean herself, Steph Blake, who’s coming down to ringside to defend that title against Suzanne Brazzle and...oh no, she’s got a mic.”



Steph Blake glares at the jeering crowd. “Suzanne Brazzle...you have held this title. You know the prestige that comes with this crown. Few have accomplished this feat, and those who have represent the greatest wrestlers that have ever stepped foot into this ring. To win this title is to transcend mortality and become a legend. And indeed, Suzanne, your reign did contribute to that legend. We will not deny that. But whereas you contributed to the legend of this title, as did every woman before me who possessed this title contributed...we have perfected it. In us, the legend finds its final form. The promise, fulfilled. Yes, you once held this title, but you lost it, because this title is bigger than you. Bigger than any woman before us. Finally, the title has come home to the one woman who is as big as it is. You fought hard to make another woman submit to your will, and we respect that - but that only makes you submitting to our will all the more meaningful.”


“Mysterious Ways” fills the arena as Suzanne Brazzle enters the ring. If she was in any way impressed by Blake’s speech, she isn’t showing it - saver, perhaps, for a look of disgust as she faces the champion head on. (Angle Rating - 59)




http://i.imgur.com/p39q1H6.jpg vs. http://i.imgur.com/2m3v59w.jpg

Suzanne Brazzle (Challenger) vs. Steph Blake (Champion)


As soon as the bell rings, Blake’s gameplan becomes clear as Blake hones in on the bruises left from Brazzle’s grueling “I Quit” match two weeks ago. Every time Brazzle begins to string some offense together, Blake lands a hard shot, with her elbows or her knees, on Brazzle’s still-healing injuries. To her credit, Brazzle stays in the match, and after a running bulldog, Blake’s in perfect position for Brazzle’s “Miracle Connection” lionsault. To Blake’s credit, Blake draws her knees up as Brazzle takes to the air, likely preventing what otherwise would have been a three-count and the end of her title reign.


The longer the match goes, the more advantage it is to Blake, as even without Brazzle being worn down from her match two weeks ago, Blake’s conditioning gives her an advantage. A massive Impaler DDT looks like the end of the line, but unbelievably, Brazzle kicks out at the very last moment. Blake, looking incredulous and frustrated, throws Brazzle out to the floor. While out there, Blake finds a crescent wrench under the ring. She puts it on the ring stairs, but turns around right into a flurry of punches from Brazzle, who rolls Blake into the ring. Blake gets up and immediately goes to the opposite corner, where she starts untying the turnbuckle pad. The referee steps in, admonishing Blake, but turns his back on the action to retie the pad. That’s enough of an opening for Blake, who surreptitiously grabbed the wrench when she was thrown into the ring, to blast Brazzle in the ribs, and then in the back of the head once Brazzle’s doubled over. Tossing the wrench out of the ring right before the referee turns back to the action, Blake immediately goes for the pinfall on the unconscious Brazzle, getting an uncontested three-count.





(In a decent match, Steph Blake defeated Suzanne Brazzle in 25:07 by pinfall after using a foreign object. Steph Blake makes defence number 2 of her AAA Femme Fatale title. Match Rating - 56)


“Again?!?!” Cat exclaims. “All that talk of honor, of how perfect she is, and she uses a weapon to score a cheap victory! I’m not a fan of Steph Blake, at all, but she wrestled a former champion to a stalemate for twenty-five minutes. You don’t do that unless you are the real deal. The only thing more infuriating than seeing someone cheat to win, is seeing someone cheat when they could win just based on skill but choose to take shortcuts. Unbelievable.”


“I can’t disagree with you, Cat, but it must be said that the record books will show Steph Blake scored a pinfall in her second defense of the AAA Femme Fatale title,” states Freebush. “Folks, thank you so much for joining us, whether you’re here with us in person or watching out on the web. We hope you’ll join us in two weeks for Girls Aloud, when we come to you live from the Valley Ice Center in Bozeman, Montana. For my broadcast partner, Cat Quine, and all of us in AAA, thank you and good night!”


Final show rating - 58.

Congrats, Dar, I'll contact you about your narrative prize soon.


General Thoughts


This show, looking back, is not a bad one but does feel a little bit like a holding pattern. The Jaime Quine/Cherry Bomb feud continues onward, after a slight fakeout that Jaime was over it. It's been a great feud so far, probably the defining feud of the diary to this point, but hopefully it doesn't feel like it's interminably dragging. I do have a very clear endpoint in mind...if all goes well.


Some folk who've been good enough to leave comments on this diary have expressed their enjoyment of Steph Blake. She's easily the worker I have grown the most affection for as a result of writing this diary. Others I have always loved, like Cherry and Paige and Jaime. But Steph was definitely someone I wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to use. Turning her into a royal "we" using egomaniac wasn't my first plan with her, but it seems to be working.


I had to use "Cherub Rock" for the A-List. That over-dramatic drum roll? The overall message of "screw you calling me a sellout, I actively do not care what you think of me, I'm making bank," in the song? Yeah, those are sentiments the A-List can definitely roll with.


Is it fairly obvious that I don't really have much affection for Good Lookin' Bunny?


On one hand, the creepy woman vignettes are radically opposed to everything else happening in the show. One could argue it's radically opposed to AAA in general, seeing as how it's mostly based around the notion of athletic competition. So I'm not certain how well it's meshing and will mesh in the future. On the other hand, WWE managed to have the Ministry of Darkness in the middle of the Attitude Era, so I'm not sure that it's impossible to have two very different narrative themes happening during the same show. But it's definitely VERY different. Hopefully it doesn't come across as being lame and cheesy.


Also, I think I've turned the corner in terms of how to score well in a post-SMY and J-Ro AAA. My plans to get to cult and get a TV deal continue onward.

For the record, I like those creepy little vignettes. As with Wyatt vignettes, it can be hard to deliver on them in the end, but in the meantime, they suggest something good to come. I'm onboard.


I can't believe I predicted Jaime's partner to be Paige Croft and still did not predict them to win. There are some individuals paired that transcend the rule of named tag teams beating unnamed ones.

<p>Queen of Mean!</p><p> </p><p>

I'll add that you are writing Steph really well, and she's gone from being a transitional champ in my eyes to a JBL-like villain that can hold the belt for a year and drop it in a meaningful way to make a new top babyface.</p><p> </p><p>

I'm not sure where the A-List goes from here, whether a quick break-up or a slow-burn, but it should be entertaining either way.</p><p> </p><p>

I agree with Dr_Avalanche on the vignettes. I like the difference vibe from the rest of the show, and it puts Cat Quine's distinct stamp on her vision for AAA.</p>

<p>Story Interlude - Dropping the Bomb</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Reverie Center</strong></p><p><strong>

Atlanta, GA</strong></p><p><strong>

September 20, 2015</strong></p><p> </p><p>


Cherry Bomb – or, Sharie Guthrie, according to her driver’s license – had been waiting in the lobby of the 12th floor of the <a href="https://www.emporis.com/images/show/179654-Large.jpg" rel="external nofollow">Reverie Center</a>, home of United States Pro Wrestling, for at least forty-five minutes.</p><p> </p><p>


She had already tapped her foot to the point where the receptionist glared at Cherry. She’d already browsed through the previous few months’ issues of Sports Illustrious laid out for consumption, stopping to read anything on MMA and mostly skimming the rest. She got up, stretched, went to the water fountain, sat back down, stared at the clock. Finally, the man she had been waiting for emerged from the elevator.</p><p> </p><p>


“Sharie! Good to see you! I’m sorry about making you wait, I got caught up dealing with some edits for a video package we’re airing tonight.” Robbie Sanchez – Sharie could never get used to calling him “Robert” even after he traded in the zebra stripes for a suit and tie – offered his apologies while dropping off a package with the receptionist, who required Robbie to “sign there”, “sign there”, and “sign down there” on a series of documents. After working his way to the bottom of the stack, Robbie motioned toward the hallway leading to his office. “Come on back, Sharie, let’s talk.”</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie’s office was a corner office, and all glass. He could peer out over Atlanta like it was his own personal fiefdom. Robbie gestured to a seat in front of his desk as he opened up a decanter with scotch from a side table. “What do you think? It’s a step up from changing in utility closets in high school gymnasiums, don’t you think?”</p><p> </p><p>

Cherry glanced around the room. “Kind of feels like a fishbowl with all this glass.”</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie laughed as he brought over two glasses, handing one to Cherry. “Honestly, you’re not too far off,” he said as he sat down behind his desk. “That’s the tradeoff. We’re the biggest wrestling company in the world. Everything I do, people judge. I sneeze, and some internet moron thinks it means I’m burying their favorite indie sweetheart.” He rolled his eyes. “Still, it’s a fair tradeoff. And it’s a heck of a lot better on the knees that having to make three counts.” He grinned.</p><p> </p><p>

Cherry smiled a perfunctory smile. “Robbie, you’ve already used up forty-five minutes of my time, making me wait. I know you didn’t ask me to come here to chit-chat.”</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie took a drink before he spoke. “Well, my circumstances may have changed, Sharie, but you remain the Cherry Bomb you were when you first got here.” His eyes did not agree with his smile. “Always business with you.” Cherry said nothing. After realizing nothing was forthcoming, Robbie continued. “So, let’s talk business. Your contract expires about a month from now.” Cherry nodded, but still said nothing. “We’ve decided to offer you an extension.” Robbie pushed a leather folder across the desk. Cherry immediately opened it and began reading. Within a few seconds, Cherry’s head jerked back up.</p><p> </p><p>

“One year? You’re offering me a year?”</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie sat back in his chair. “I talked to the rest of the booking committee, and Allen Packer. We decided one year was what we felt comfortable with at this time.” Cherry let her stare linger for a moment, then returned to reading the contract. “I’ll save you the time, Sharie. One year, $5,000 a month. We plan on using you as a gatekeeper.” Cherry’s face began to flush.</p><p> </p><p>

“Not even sniffing the title. And to top it off, that’s a $2,500 a month pay cut, Robbie.”</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie nodded. “Yes, it is.”</p><p> </p><p>

Cherry took a swig of scotch. It burned all the way to the pit of her stomach. “Are you kidding me with this, Robbie? This is an insult. After all I’ve done for this company. After having been here, day in and day out since you hired me back in 2007. After having not said a word to anyone outside of this company about the fact that I haven’t had a title run since 2008. After having sat around on my ass for years while you had nothing for me to do, you’re offering me this…slap in the face?” Cherry’s face was as red as the firework she was named after, and it wasn’t just the scotch causing it.</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie shook his head. “Cherry, listen, this isn’t personal, all right? It’s business.” Cherry’s eyebrows furrowed. “Let me be honest, Cherry. You’re just south of 40.”</p><p> </p><p>

Cherry laughed. “You have got to be kidding me.”</p><p> </p><p>

“No, Cherry, I’m not,” Robbie replied. “We’ve run surveys. You’ve been steadily losing popularity with men 18-30 years old, who, as you know, are a key demographic for our sponsors. Your merch sales are middling. You don’t move the needle in terms of getting butts in seats or eyes on the screen.” Robbie sighed. “You don’t draw money like you used to, Cherry, and your contract reflects that.”</p><p> </p><p>

Cherry swigged the last of the scotch and pounded the glass onto Robbie’s desk. “That’s because I never got a chance to get over, Robbie! Come on, I expect the friggin’ suits to not understand how this business works, but you know better! As for why I don’t draw money, maybe it’s because you’ve been putting me in more dark matches than on TV for the past three years.” Robbie tried to speak, but Cherry cut him off. “I’ve been keeping track, Robbie, so don’t try to contradict me on that. I’ve been doing house show circuits, and even then, I’m in the toilet break slot. I’ve been booked to ensure no one gives two craps about me, and what do you know, all your fancy stats people confirmed what we’ve known about this business for almost eighty years. Congratu-friggin’-lations, Robbie.” Cherry sat back in her chair, arms folded. She stared out of the office windows, watching the constant flow of traffic merging on and off <a href="http://imgc.allpostersimages.com/images/P-473-488-90/27/2738/1XOND00Z/posters/traffic-backs-up-on-the-downtown-connector-in-atlanta.jpg" rel="external nofollow">Interstates 75 and 85</a>.</p><p> </p><p>

Robbie massaged the bridge of his nose. “I get it, Cherry, I do. Listen, I fought to ensure you got a contract offer. Most of the booking committee was against offering you an extension at all. They think we’ve been paying you to do nothing – and yes, that’s partially their fault. But we don’t have anything for you. I told them you’ve got cachet as the first USPW women’s champion still. If we put the next generation of girls over you, that means something if we frame it right. In this business, everyone’s got an expiration date. You can either hang on way too long, or you can go out in a way that makes a new generation of stars. You can go out with class. You know for a fact, Cherry, that other women laid down for you when you first started, to get you over. You should do the same for others.”</p><p> </p><p>

Cherry continued to stare out at the traffic. “Maybe I am past my prime, Robbie. I’m definitely not getting any younger. But you’re wrong about me hanging on too long. I’m not finished. I have several years left in the tank. You know what else you’re right about? That maybe I do owe a debt of gratitude that needs to be paid.” Robbie smiled. “But not here.” Robbie’s smile evaporated immediately. “You can toss that contract in the shredder, Robbie, I’m done here.” Cherry got up, finally looking Robbie Sanchez in the eye again. “But I’m not done.” Cherry walked out of the office, with her head held high.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>**********</strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p>

Cherry still hadn’t gone home yet. After her meeting with Robbie Sanchez, she rode the <a href="https://i.ytimg.com/vi/beLZq2webeQ/maxresdefault.jpg" rel="external nofollow">MARTA</a> for a while, heading nowhere in particular. She had a number in her phone she hadn’t called for years. Cherry wondered if the number was still in service. It had been enough of an open question that she could not allow herself to hit send. As the MARTA pulled into the Airport station, Cherry stood up. Robbie had made her wait 45 minutes, but here she was, delaying herself for over an hour. She walked up to street level and sat down on a bench. Finally, Cherry pressed “send”.</p><p> </p><p>

The phone rang, one, twice, three times. Cherry thought about hanging up. And at that moment, the other end of the line came to life.</p><p> </p><p>


“Angel Athletic Association, this is Anne Stardust. So, you finally ready to come home, Sharie?”</p>

The dynamic between Cat and Cherry (should they develop differing opinions) could really drive a lot of the backstage segments, and I like that Cherry reached her breaking point with USPW. It shows a spine to move on from guaranteed money near the end of her career, and also gives her extra motivation to convince the rest of the locker room that Atlanta might not be all it's cut out to be.</p>

<p>Thanks, fellas. When I first started this diary, I really thought this would be Cat Quine's diary. I thought her journey from bright-eyed rookie wrestler to owner of the company would make for some compelling stuff. But pretty soon, I started telling this story from multiple points of view. I still think Cat Quine's the central narrative thread, but it's no longer her story entirely. In fact, I've come to believe that the Angel Athletic Association itself is the main character of this diary, and because of Cat Quine's role as owner and booker, she happens to be the viewpoint character with greater frequency. She's also got the advantage of having been with AAA from its inception through to the present, which means I can place her anywhere in the company's history.</p><p> </p><p>

I think one benefit from the fractured perspectives has been writing Cherry Bomb. I've really grown to enjoy Cherry, and I hope she (and all of my other workers!) comes across in an individual voice, instead of everyone sounding like me. In some ways, I wish I had taken Cherry as my user avatar and left her installed as AAA's booker. It'd save me her salary costs <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> But no time to look back, we must move forever forward!</p>

<p>An Interview with Paige Croft and Prediction Contest for AAA Girls Aloud</p><p> </p><p> <em>Posted to the “Interviews” section of AAA’s website</em></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/kEkUwNO.jpg</span></p><p> <strong>Cat Quine</strong>: Hello everyone, I’m Cat Quine, one-half of the AAA broadcast team, coming to you from AAA headquarters! Today, I’m excited to have the chance to interview a woman of 1,000 holds, but very few words. I’m hoping I can get a few more than normal out of her today. As requested by so many of you Angels out there, let me introduce today’s guest, Paige Croft.</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/F4Wr0uD.jpg</span></p><p> <strong>Paige Croft</strong>: Thanks, Cat.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: You’re not a woman of many words. It was actually a surprise to me that you agreed to this interview.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Well, it’s not like I’m unable to talk. I just think there’s no point saying something unless you have something worth saying.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: The saying goes, actions speak louder than words.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: A saying I agree with.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Certainly, then, you’ve said volumes to your opponents in the ring. You’re known for some of the most painful submission holds in AAA.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Is that what I’m known for? Causing pain?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: The looks on your opponents’ faces and the frantic tapping out would suggest so.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: I’m not looking to cause pain, Cat. I’m looking to win. You’re confusing ends with means. The pain is not the ends, it is simply the most effective means. The pain I cause to my opponents is just a byproduct of me pursuing my goal.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: And that is?</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/mkLIQNG.jpg</span></p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: The same as every other woman in this company - the Femme Fatale title.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Steph Blake achieved that goal for the first time <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2204268&postcount=54" rel="external nofollow">recently</a>. What do you think of Steph as a champion?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: I think Steph is very talented, but she lacks confidence.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Lacks confidence? She’s constantly telling people how incredible she is!</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Exactly, Cat. That’s how you know she lacks confidence. If she believed it, she wouldn’t need to say it. She says she's incredible all the time, which means the person she’s trying to convince the most? Is herself. She certainly hasn’t convinced me.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Huh, you may be right about that.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: The quiet ones usually are, aren’t we? Anyway, Steph takes shortcuts, regularly. If you needed further proof of her lack of confidence.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Are you confident that you could take the Femme Fatale title from her?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Absolutely. That’s not to say Steph Blake couldn’t beat me. She’s Femme Fatale champion for a reason. But I have no doubt that if you put me in a ring with Steph Blake, I can - and I will - come out on top.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: I, for one, would love to see that match. Let's talk about your nickname. You’re called the Tiny Terminator.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: I don’t call myself that. You do.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: It was the Angels out there who first coined the term. And I immediately understood why. Despite your undoubted technical abilities, you are possibly the smallest woman on the active roster.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: And?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Well, that’s got to be a disadvantage, doesn’t it?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: It’s a disadvantage, yes. But it doesn’t have to be. Let me illustrate my point. Take just one finger, and push it into the soft tissue underneath your tongue.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: ...now?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: No time like the present, Cat.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Oooookay....ow! Jeez! That hurts!</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Yes, it does. How much pressure do you think you used?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Not much!</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: There you go. Look at what you can do with a single finger on a single spot on your body. You could be seven foot tall and if I pressed down on that spot, I could still bring you to your knees. It doesn’t matter how big you are, because it doesn’t make it hurt any less. That’s why it my size disadvantage hasn’t stopped me, and that’s why it won’t stop me.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Those are bold words, Paige.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: If I didn’t believe them, I wouldn’t say them.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Among other beliefs, it appears you don’t believe a woman should have to fight at a two-on-one disadvantage, since you stepped in to break up Devil’s Daughter and Cherry Bomb’s ambush on my stepsister Jaime at <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2209037&postcount=85" rel="external nofollow">The Lass Frontier</a>.</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/Dw8k489.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/Ij4JV2X.jpg</span></p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Jaime Quine was my tag team partner for that night. You protect your tag partner. Didn’t matter that the match was over. That’s what you do.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Not everyone would do so.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: But everyone should. Have we really gotten to the point where being a decent human being is a praiseworthy act, instead of the bare minimum of behavior?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Still, that could put you directly in the crosshairs of possibly the most destructive woman on this roster in Cherry Bomb. Not to mention Devil’s Daughter, who’s already in the AAA Hall of Fame as half of the legendary Wild Times tag team.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: It may have. Sometimes doing the right thing has consequences. I accept that. If Cherry Bomb or Devil’s Daughter wants to confront me about that, they’re free to challenge me any time.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: Do you think this is the beginning of a friendship with Jaime?</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: Friendship is a big thing, Cat. I saved her from getting double teamed. That doesn’t make us friends. But we were a very effective team, and I respect Jaime. I would absolutely team with Jaime again, and even if we are not friends, we might develop a very effective partnership.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: They say efficiency is the measure of just how good a machine is.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>PC</strong>: I challenge “them”, whoever they are, to step in the ring with me. Because <strong>that</strong>, is how I measure just how good I am.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>CQ</strong>: I think that’s a solid note for us to end on. On behalf of the Angel Athletic Association, thank you for watching. Make sure you join us on May 2 when we present Girls Aloud from the Valley Ice Center in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. No place like Big Sky country. See you soon, Angels - and remember to leave your predictions in the comments below!</p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>**********</strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="42833" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p> <strong>AAA presents Girls Aloud</strong></p><p><strong> Valley Ice Center</strong></p><p><strong> Bozeman, Montana</strong></p><p><strong> May 2, 2016</strong></p><p> </p><p> <strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Pre-Show</span></strong></p><p> </p><p> <strong>Laura Flame vs. Joanna Silver vs. Sarah Taylor</strong></p><p> </p><p> Laura Flame took her best shot at Foxxy LaRue & her Top Contender’s title at Lass Frontier, but chose to get herself intentionally DQ’ed when it wasn’t enough to keep Foxxy down.

This was the perfect time to have this interview as I feel Paige is already well on her way towards the main event scene (well you know, besides actually being in the main event of this show :D).


Should be a good show too, and I'm excited to see who the mystery woman is. I have a guess, but I don't think it's right.


Quick Picks

Laura Flame (just seems like she has the most to offer right now out of the three)

The Princess & the Punk (Ellie May should take all falls)

Zoe Ammis & Tracy Brendon (It feels like Brendon needs this win, while McGee doesn't seem like she's in-line for much other being a jobber with a good backstage attitude)

Foxxy LaRue (I had a hard time picking this one, but I think Selina will just be a placeholder until Talia gets back. She might win by countout or some other non-title way, but Foxxy looks like she's going straight to the top)

One Half of the A-List (who needs the win more in the A-List? I say Wade. Golden Delicious should still put in a good effort though and make this closer than it should be on paper)

Steph Blake (similar to the Top Contender's Match, this could get thrown out or end in a DQ, but I'll stick with the Queen of Mean)

Jaime Quine & Paige Croft (tough one here, but with Devil's Daughter in the match, I think she takes the fall. Hopefully Jaime and Paige will get a nice bump out of winning, and Quine's rematch against Cherry should be epic whenever it happens)


1. Which member of the A-List, Demelza Wade or Nadia Snow, gets the AAA Femme Fatale Championship spot? Nadia Snow, just feel that Wade vs Brazelle is the bigger match, so that's being saved for another show down the road.


2. Who is the mysterious woman, who’s been hijacking AAA feeds to sing disturbing lullabies? Well, Emma Bitch has a darkness to her, so that's the only one that springs to mind. I'm expecting to be wrong though.


3. Someone will cut the highest-rated promo in this diary’s history at this event. Who will do so? Thinking Steph Blake. Her momentum should be through the roof right now and the more Blake on the show, the better


Tiebreaker: What will the numeric score for the highest-rated promo in diary history be? I'll go 92, let's get crazy

<strong>Laura Flame</strong> vs Joanna Silver vs Sarah Taylor</p><p>

Give Sarah some experience, and build up Laura. Seems straight forward.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Princess & the Punk</strong> vs Ellie May Walton & Ariel Breaks</p><p>

Can't see Princess & the Punk coming up short here.</p><p> </p><p>

Bobby McGee & Steffi Chee vs<strong> Zoe Amiss & Tracy Brendon</strong></p><p>

I figure McGee gets to take a pinfall here. That, and I'm a registered Amiss fan, so what can you do?</p><p> </p><p>

Selina Svelte vs <strong>Foxxy LaRue</strong></p><p>

If Foxxy isn't 100% I can see the match being more competitive than otherwise, but I still can't see Svelte stealing the title.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>One half of the A-list</strong> vs Golden Delicious</p><p>

If the A-list are going to start bickering about who's the top dog in the team, it would really help if the one that gets the title shot fails and the one that didn't wins. I think it's Nadia Snow in this match, but I figure the result will be the same regardless. It may be that I'm underestimating Golden Delicious though, a wrestler I'm not very familiar with.</p><p> </p><p>

One half of the A-list vs <strong>Steph Blake</strong></p><p>

If there was gambling on AAA wrestling, I'd put a small bet on the next champion being *either* Jaime Quine or Paige Croft. Anyone else beating Blake would be an upset to me. Would be cool to be wrong, but I'd be very surprised if it happened here.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jaime Quine & Paige Croft </strong>vs. Cherry Bomb and Devil’s Daughter</p><p>

I suspect DD eats a pin here. Build Jaime.</p><p> </p><p>

Bonus Questions:</p><p> </p><p>

1. I think <strong>Demelza Wade </strong>gets the title shot.</p><p>

2. First I thought it might be a repackaged Devil's Daughter, but I think she has had matches on every show with those creepy segments, so that might exclude her. I like the guess of <strong>Raven Nightfall</strong>. Let's go with that.</p><p>

3. I think MrWolf101 and Theheel has made very good guesses who might have delivered the best promo in AAA history. I'll go with <strong>Cherry Bomb.</strong></p><p><strong>

</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Tie breaker: Not sure how high your angles have gone in the past. I'll say <strong>74.</strong></p>

Ammis takes the upper hand early, clearly not taking Bobbie seriously, but an enziguri from Bobbie that allows her to make the tag to Steffi Chee after some early Ammis offense suggests Ammis may have underestimated AAA’s resident hippie. Stunned by the boot to the head, Ammis stumbles over to Brendon and makes the tag. Facing off against veterans seems to bring some level of primal hatred out of Brendon as she viciously assaults Chee, who’s able to get a little offense in, but can’t create enough space to fight off Brendon. Chee takes an opening to tag in Bobbie after she lays Brendon out with an STO. Ammis proves that she’s a strategic tag wrestler no matter her partner, as she hits Chee with a Double Cross backstabber when Chee rolls out of the ring following the tag. Bobbie McGee goes for a flying cross body which Brendon - now on her feet - uses Bobbie’s momentum to reverse her leap into a massive Idaho Crunch powerslam. With her partner neutralized, Brendon gets the unopposed three-count.

The crowd gives a nice pop as the AAA Top Contender champion emerges from the back, mic in hand. After taking in the crowd’s adulation, Foxxy speaks as she walks to the ring. <p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/gVkOI5G.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> “Thank y’all here in Big Sky country for the warm welcome!” The tried-and-true local cheap pop works. “When I got here <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2206353&postcount=71" rel="external nofollow">a month ago</a>, I told y’all Foxxy LaRue was comin’ to be the new boss lady of A-A-A! I took on Talia Quinzel and we let it all hang out. Now, Talia hurt herself and that’s not the way Foxxy plays the game. I ain’t looking to put people on the shelf. Selina Svelte, I getcha, honey. You mad because your girl got injured. You want to take it out on me, you think this belt belongs to you and Talia? Well, you come on down and get you some. But paying somebody to beat me black and blue? Girl, come on. Fight me straight up, like you got some respect.

Selina uses her masterful ground game to keep Foxxy off her vertical base, reducing Foxxy’s ability to rely on her brawling-based offense. As the match continues, it becomes clear Selina is targeting Foxxy’s left leg - the same leg Selina’s tag partner, Talia Quinzel, injured. Selina sits back and wrenches a single-leg crab, forcing Foxxy to crawl to the ropes to break the hold. Stretching out, she barely grabs onto the rope, forcing a break. Selina doesn’t release the hold until the ref counts to four, risking a disqualification. When she releases the hold, right before the five count, she gets into the ref’s face about his count. This gives Foxxy the opening to roll up Selina while she jaws at the ref. With the ref right there, he makes a three count that Selina just barely misses kicking out of in time.

Foxxy LaRue’s been a house on fire from the moment she stepped foot in AAA. She’s a fighting champion of the highest order, and you have to love the confidence to put the belt on the line, just to get an opportunity to even the score with Laura Flame.” Cat puts a finger up and pressing her headset closer to her ear. “I’m being told the A-List are having a meeting with our general manager, Cat Jemson, and that we’ve got a camera back there.

We go back a long ways. Remember when USPW chose not to resign both of you?” Snow and Wade look like they just sucked on a lemon. “You were at New York Fashion Week, I was on the runway, and at the afterparty we decided that you were going to show everyone that Atlanta just lost their biggest stars? And how I said that with me as your agent, you were unstoppable? I remember that. You remember when I led you two to the tag team championships? I do. You remember how the Femme Fatale championship felt around your waist, Demelza? How about the Top Contender’s belt around yours, Nadia? Because it was me who led you there. So, don’t talk to me about forgetting who did what for who around here.”</p><p> </p><p> Snow and Wade are stunned. They look at each other, searching for words. “Not to put too fine a point on it, Cat,” hisses Wade, “But <em>we</em> were the ones who actually won those championships in the ring. And in the present, we went all the way to friggin’ ALASKA and fought Wendy Anderson and Golden Delicious, like we were a couple of nobodies who had something to prove, which we obviously don’t. And you promised us a title shot once we won.”</p><p> </p><p> Jemson shrugs. “So I did, so I did. I’m a woman of my word. But here’s the thing - I’m also a fair woman.” Jemson shows no indication of irony in making that statement. “Steph Blake deserves a one-on-one match. After all, I promised a title shot. Giving you both an opportunity would be giving more than I promised.” The A-List starts to complain, but Jemson cuts them off. “Listen, I don’t have to give either of you one at all.” That shuts the A-List up. Cat pulls out her purse - a Gucci bag, but of course - and fishes a quarter out. “Demelza, call it in the air.”</p><p> </p><p> “Heads,” says Demelza. The camera zooms in to show tails.</p><p> </p><p> “Oh, I’m sorry Demelza. Looks like Nadia gets the title shot tonight.” Snow does a little hop and even audibly squees, but quickly composes herself when she sees Wade’s caustic expression. “But Demelza, these people in Montana deserve a chance to bask in your greatness. So, you get to take on Golden Delicious. Right now.”</p><p> </p><p> “What!?!?” exclaims Wade.</p><p> </p><p> “I think you heard me,” Cat says with a disingenuous smile. “In fact, I can hear her music starting. I think you better hurry.”</p><p> </p><p> Wade looks like she wants to say something, but instead she just lets out a frustrated huff and storms out of the office. Snow watches her go, and silently says, “Thank you” to Jemson before hurrying after her tag partner.

Delicious seemed to have learned from the experience, as she approached the match cautiously and methodically, keeping an eye out for Nadia Snow - who, surprisingly, did not involve herself in the match at all. Even without her A-List partner, Wade shows why she is a former Femme Fatale champion as she takes advantage of Delicious’ well-founded paranoia. Several times through the match, Wade is able to make a feint, to which Delicious over-commits, leading to a flurry of offense from Wade. Delicious won’t be kept down, and with the crowd behind her, she turns the momentum with a series of devastating clotheslines and a pair of missile dropkicks. Dazed, Wade tumbles into the corner, and Delicious goes for a corner splash from the opposite turnbuckle. This proves to be Delicious’ fatal mistake, as Wade clearly had been playing possum - once Delicious has committed too much speed to stop, Wade unleashes a vicious SuperStar Kick that drops Delicious like a sack of apples. Given the force of the kick, combined with the momentum Wade turned against Delicious, it’s no surprise that Demelza gets the three-count.

Clearly, Jaime’s comments at Not Just a Pretty Face about how she feels like she proved that she could have - should have - beat Cherry in their ladder match at Girl on Girl Action back in March has gotten under the skin of Cherry Bomb.

Nevertheless, the action is solid as Snow seems to want to prove the adage that you can’t play a player. At one point, Blake catches Snow in a roll up and puts her feet on the middle rope for leverage. Instead of kicking out, Snow tells the referee to check Blake’s feet, which he does. Having caught Blake red-handed, the ref does not count the illegal pinfall, much to Blake’s consternation. Meanwhile, both women seem to skirt the edges of disqualification, as eye pokes and hair pulls are used liberally throughout the bout.</p><p> </p><p> “Nadia Snow had better watch out,” warns Cat Quine on commentary. “Not only could she get disqualified for some of the shenanigans she’s pulling, but her calling attention to Blake’s cheating could get Blake disqualified. She might win the match that way, but the title does not change on a disqualification.”</p><p> </p><p> The action spills to the outside, where the heels use the audience railing, the ring post, and the ring stairs to attempt to maim their opponent. Blake goes under the ring and pulls out a wrench, not unlike she did in her match with Suzanne Brazzle at The Lass Frontier. Snow has this scouted, though, and the referee catches her clutching the wrench. He takes it from her hands and goes over to the timekeeper’s table to deposit the foreign object. It’s at this time Blake pulls a pair of brass knuckles that she had been keeping in her ring boots, with which she clobbers Nadia Snow in the back of the head, since Snow’s still watching the ref take the wrench to the timekeeper’s table. Blake hurriedly places the brass knuckles back in her boot right before the referee turns around. Seeing Snow laid out in the ring, the ref slides into the ring to count the three for Blake. (<em>In a decent match, Steph Blake defeated Nadia Snow in 17:50 by pinfall after using a foreign object. Steph Blake makes defence number 3 of her AAA Femme Fatale title.

And you blew it! You knew Steph was going to try and blindside you with some weapon. Nadia, we’re better than anyone at doing that to other people! How could you not see it coming?”</p><p> </p><p> Snow winces. “My head is ringing, Demelza, could you please keep it down?” She winces again. “You could have had my back out there, you know? You could have been watching for her to pull a trick like that.”</p><p> </p><p> Wade’s jaw drops, slightly. “Oh, so this is <em>my</em> fault, now? It’s <em>my</em> fault that you got a Femme Fatale title shot and you lost the match? I didn’t see <em>you</em> out there with me when I beat Golden Delicious, Nadia.”</p><p> </p><p> “Oh, come on Demelza, that’s not fair. I was getting ready for this title match. Jemson dropped that match on you right away, I needed the time to prepare.”</p><p> </p><p> Wade snorts. “Well, a fat lot of good all that prep time did for you, huh?” Snow sulks, and Wade sits on a bench, her shoulders stooped. “Listen, next time a title shot comes along, you give it to me, all right? I’ve won the big one before, Nadia, and I can do it again. Deal?”</p><p> </p><p> Snow sighs. “Yes, Demelza, deal. Now, I need to find some aspirin.” Snow leaves the locker room, icepack still pressed against her head. Wade watches her leave, and when she hears the door close behind Snow, shakes her head in disgust. (<em>Angle rating - 51</em>)</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> “I don’t know that we’ve ever seen the A-List in such disarray, Cat.”</p><p> </p><p> “I don’t think we have either. Wade and Snow have been nigh-inseparable - and totally insufferable - since they first came to AAA after being shown the door in Atlanta. They’ve won and lost tag championships, even stuck together when Wade held the Femme Fatale title without any outward sign of jealousy on Snow’s part. When Wade lost the title, she didn’t blame Snow. You have to wonder how much of the A-List’s cohesiveness was a result of Cat Jemson’s management, and if her new duties as general manager mean the glue that kept the A-List together is wearing thin.”</p><p> </p><p> Freebush and Cat Quine suddenly wince in pain and remove their headsets. After a moment’s trepidation, they put them back on. Cat listens for a moment, then picks up a house mic. “Angels, we have been told the woman who has been hijacking our video feeds during our recent shows wants to reveal herself to the world. We direct your attention to the projector screens.” The show feed cuts to static, then to black.</p><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="42833" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><em>In a Dark Cabin Somewhere in the Pacific Northwest</em><p> </p><p> A single, bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling slowly brightens. It is the one source of light in the room. Underneath the bulb, sitting in a threadbare antique armchair, is a robed and hooded figure. The shadows from the hood obscure her face. Only her chalky white hands and her talon-black fingernails can be seen. The figure, without moving, speaks.</p><p> </p><p> “Legends say Adam had a wife before Eve. She was made of the same clay as Adam, and so was his equal. For her refusal to submit to Adam, she was exiled to the darkness beyond Creation. Adam was given a new wife made from his own rib, who would exist not for herself, but for him. But Adam never forgot his first wife. One can only wonder whether it was her that he thought of, when he ate the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, as he and his new wife were cast out of the garden themselves.</p><p> </p><p> Did Adam go looking for his first wife - the one he truly desired? No one knows. But she did not go looking for him. When she was cast out of paradise, she traveled the darkness beyond. She learned many things in the darkness, strange and powerful things. She met many strange and powerful creatures. She lay with them, but she refused to let any of them control her, as she could not be controlled. And so she she gave birth to entities of great and terrible power, and the children of Adam and Eve trembled before their might. In their fear, they called these creatures demons. Monsters. They hunted the first wife’s children, slaying them in a vain attempt to quiet the fears that kept them awake in the night.</p><p> </p><p> But the first wife was as wise as she was independent. Seeing her children slaughtered by the Sons of Man, she lay with the Sons of Man and created children with a body like Eve, but the soul of their mother. And these children of the first wife, she watched from the darkness - the darkness that she was once exiled to, that was now her domain. She watched, and she waited. Waited for when one of her brood called out for her.</p><p> </p><p> She has heard her child cry out to her. And so, <strong>I</strong> arrive.

Or, really, I don’t know. The woman is clearly insane.”</p><p> </p><p> “Be that as it may, Cat, she sounded like she believed every word she said was true.”</p><p> </p><p> “Oh, I agree, Jim. And <em>that’s</em> what terrifies me. Whoever this Lilith woman is, she is malevolent. She means to do harm. Worst of all, she believes every word of her, frankly, insane fairy tale. And she’s promised to come here, for the sake of her ‘children’. That’s extremely distressing. That could mean this Lilith’s ‘children’ are already here, among us.”</p><p> </p><p> “A disturbing and disquieting thought. Well, we’ve still got one more match tonight, our main event, and I don’t know about you, Cat, but I’m more than ready to get to it. Standing by in the ring are one-half of tonight’s main event, Jaime Quine and Paige Croft.”</p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> Jaime Quine stands in the center of the ring, microphone in hand, while Paige Croft sits on the top turnbuckle of one of the corners. “JAI-ME! JAI-ME! JAI-ME!” chants the crowd, while Jaime Quine grins wide. As the chant dies down, Jaime raises her mic. “Thank you, thank you all so much. It’s been a rough few months here in AAA. We’ve seen a power-mad dictator at the helm of the company. We’ve seen an egomaniac and, despite her obvious talent, cheater become champion. We’ve lost two of the <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2203595&postcount=43" rel="external nofollow">icons</a> <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2204268&postcount=54" rel="external nofollow">of</a> this company, no-doubt Hall of Fame talents whenever they finally choose to hang up their boots. And we’ve had another Hall of Fame level talent in Cherry Bomb decide they want to make my life a living hell, make the lives of anyone who helps me hell.</p><p> </p><p> It’s been a difficult few months for all of us. I stepped up to Cherry Bomb at the very first show of the year, <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2200904&postcount=6" rel="external nofollow">Pretty Amazing</a>. It could have gone either way, and it was an honor to be in the same ring as Cherry. I reached out my hand to her, to show my respect, and what did she do? She clocked me over the head with a microphone. We met again at <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2202937&postcount=31" rel="external nofollow">Girl on Girl Action</a>, two months ago, in a ladder match. This time, I was within a fingertip of defeating Cherry. So what did she do? She had her little crony, Devil’s Daughter, come out and ensure she got the victory. Now, I was ready to let it go. I was done with Cherry’s games, and I said as much. But two wins against me wasn’t enough, no, so she and her henchwoman <a href="http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2209037&postcount=85" rel="external nofollow">attacked me from behind</a> during a match they had no business being involved in.”</p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/F4Wr0uD.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> Paige Croft nods toward Jaime and motions for the mic. Jaime willingly gives it to her. “That was your mistake, Cherry. I didn’t like the way you were doing business, but it was <em>your</em> business. But then you decided to interfere in one of my matches and you made it my business. You got into my business before I got into yours. So no more of this two-on-one crap. I’m a machine, Cherry. I’m a woodchipper, and you just threw yourself right in my path. Yeah, you’re big. Yeah, you’re strong. Doesn’t matter. Sapling or redwood, there’s no one I can’t chop down to size. As for you, Devil’s Daughter? It doesn’t matter whose daughter you are. I’ll make you tap just like anybody else.”</p><p> </p><p> Croft, having said her fill, holds the microphone back out to Jaime. “The past few months have been hard. But there is a right way of doing things, an AAA way of doing things. Sara Marie York did things that way. Joanne Rodriguez did things that way. My stepsister Cat Quine - “ Jaime nods to acknowledge her ringside “ - did things that way. The history of this company is proof that you don’t have to cut corners to be a success. That you can compete with honor. And tonight, me and Paige are going to prove that to you and to everyone watching!” (<em>Angle rating - 55</em>)</p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/F4Wr0uD.jpg</span> <strong>vs.</strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/Dw8k489.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/Ij4JV2X.jpg</span><p> <strong>Jaime Quine & Paige Croft vs. Cherry Bomb & Devil’s Daughter</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> Though it’s obvious Jaime wants a chance at Cherry Bomb, she starts the match facing off against Devil’s Daughter. Though tenacious, Devil’s Daughter winds up on the losing end of several sequences against Jaime. The tides turn, however, when DD is able to whip Jaime into her corner. A massive forearm blow from behind by Cherry Bomb sets up a tag from DD to Cherry Bomb. The two women proceed to kick Jaime into a seated position, then continue to stomp her until the referee pulls them off. Paige Croft comes into as well, but this backfires as the referee turns around to stop Paige, leaving Jaime open to more double-teaming by Cherry and DD.</p><p> </p><p> Cherry and DD seem to be on the same page, making quick tags and taking liberal advantage of the referee’s count for the non-legal partner to return to the ring apron. Cherry Bomb sets up for her Cherry Bomb double underhook powerbomb, but Jaime is able to reverse this into a facebuster once she’s up in the air. With a chance to finally rest on the apron, Jaime crawls toward Paige Croft. Cherry, shaking off the cobwebs, makes the tag to DD...just in time for Jaime to make a leaping tag to Paige Croft.</p><p> </p><p> Croft launches into the ring with a slingshot shoulder tackle, and immediately goes to work on DD’s knees and lower back. Croft is quick, but methodical, giving a clinic on how to work an opponent’s limbs. Croft gets DD set up for a dragon screw, but DD seizes the opportunity to poke her eyes, letting DD tag Cherry Bomb back in. Bomb’s size and power advantage, as well as the momentary advantage off the eye poke, lets Cherry hit some vicious-looking power moves, including a spinebuster hard enough to make Paige bounce off the mat before landing again. Cherry decides to go for the arrogant pin, with one foot on Paige’s chest, but Paige responds to the insult by grabbing Cherry’s foot and immediately putting her in an ankle lock. Cherry scrambles to the ropes, her larger size allowing her to pull Paige behind her. The referee breaks the hold, giving space for Cherry to tag DD back in, while Paige tags Jaime.</p><p> </p><p> Jaime, having had a chance to get a breather after having been dissected earlier, floors DD with flying forearm shots. One shot takes her close to Cherry Bomb, lurking out on the apron. Cherry takes a wild haymaker swing, which Jaime grabs and uses to run Cherry into the ring post, sending her tumbling to the mats outside of the ring. DD’s just getting up from the flurry Jaime just unleashed, leaving her wide open as Jaime connects with a hellacious K.O. Kick. Jaime makes the quick cover for the three, and the victory. (<em>Jaime Quine and Paige Croft defeated Devil's Daughter and Cherry Bomb in 21:05 when Jaime Quine defeated Devil's Daughter by pinfall with a K.O. Kick.

Devil’s Daughter, glassy-eyed, rolls out of the ring and slowly stumbles to the back. In the ring, Jaime’s music blares over the loudspeakers as she and Paige ascend the turnbuckles to receive the adulation of the fans.

And Paige Croft continues to show that she’s the real deal and a force to be reckoned with.”</p><p> </p><p> “That wraps up our show for tonight. We hope you’ll join us in two weeks, when we come to you with Midwest Mayhem III, held live at the Proctor Speedway in Proctor, Minnesota. For you fans in the Northwest, we'll be returning to the Bohler Gymnasium on the campus of Washington State University in one month for Babe Blast. Tickets are still available for both shows!

The danger, of course, is that NOTBPW or USPW could suddenly swoop in and hire away an important member of the storyline. Never the less, I think I've gotten to a point where I feel fairly comfortable with the individual personalities on the roster and with how to book an effective AAA show.</p><p> </p><p> There was a lack of a Steph Blake promo in this diary entry. Don't worry, the Queen of Mean is back on the mic at Midwest Mayhem III, if you're experiencing withdrawls from not having Blake's egomaniacal, royal-we using promos in your life <img alt=":p" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/tongue.png.ceb643b2956793497cef30b0e944be28.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p> The A-List really became the centerpiece of the show. I suppose in some ways it makes up for their absence during the sudden rise of Steph Blake. There's a lot of ways their story can go, and because AAA isn't trying to win the Monday Night Wars, I see no reason to hotshot the angle, whatever the final outcome may be. Hopefully the interpersonal dynamics are interesting and my writing about them is interesting.</p><p> </p><p> Overall, I think that's where AAA's strengths lie, and thus, the approach this diary's going to take. I don't want to get to late-stage WCW where there's only 3 minutes of wrestling in an hour's worth of show time, because that's boring and stupid. But I really do think the strength of AAA can be in constructing narratives around the wrestling. Building characters to get attached to. The wrestling matters, but in AAA, I think you can make the wrestling matter by telling stories that make the wrestling matter. Hopefully, these narrative elements are why you enjoy reading this diary!</p><p> </p><p> <strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Questions for you:</span></strong></p><p> </p><p> 1.
