Episode 34: Road Paved in Lethal
The intro to the season finale of Thursday Night LAW plays, featuring the song “Venom” by Icon for Hire. Shots of LAW mainstays such as Jessica Hendrix, Tori de Vil, April Song, Evelyn Bennett, Io Ishimori, and Celes Dumont. The final part of the intro shows LAW Tag Champion RAVE, Inc., Specialist Champion Revy, and Lethal Angel Co-Champions Roni de Vil and Sweet Roxy.
The camera opens to an empty LAW Arena. The only people seen are various production staff, and LAW’s commentary team Melissa Flash and Kat Ricci. Melissa welcomes the audience to a special edition of Thursday Night LAW. She explains because of certain precautions related to the virus epidemic, tonight’s episode would be held without an audience. Kat Ricci reminded those watching that Lethal Hearts, taking place on March 29th at the Galen Center will see a crowd of LAW’s most faithful...and careful as the company will be giving out sanitizer and masks to those in attendance. Melissa and Lat both thanked the fans for their support.
Jessica Rose came out and announced that she was going to be signing with JET starting next season. She recalls the tour she did with the company back in 2014, at the age of eighteen. She talks about teaming with Stephanie Matsuda and how much the experience as a whole changed her life. She feels that special feeling has been lost the past few years and wants to go back to Japan to “revive her soul.” Before she could continue, Sidney Knight comes out and begins taunting Jessica, calling her a quitter. She describes her desire to join JET as nothing more than an excuse to run away from her problems. She cites how after being in two failed tag teams in both LAW and OWA, and losing to both partners, Jessica has no choice but to hide her face from the Western world. She then makes a deal with Jessica: one more match for the road. A Last Woman Standing Match to determine Jessica’s future. If she wins, then she can go where she wants. If Sidney wins, then Jessica has to hang her boots up for good. After thinking it over for a moment, Jessica vehemently agrees. Sidney laughs and shakes her head as she walks to back, satisfied with the outcome. Jessica looks on in defiance.
Jessica Hendrix vs Evelyn Bennett
Jessica Hendrix vs Evelyn Bennett
This was a classic match of speed vs power. Hendrix did her best to outmaneuver Bennett for the majority of the match, until Eve caught her diving crossbody and countered with a fallaway slam that sent the Texan halfway across the ring! Eve then took advantage of the power game by dominating her opponent with Samoan Drops, STO Backbreakers, and several Pounces. When Bennett opted for one more Pounce, Jessica countered with a drop toe hold and went for an ankle lock. Eve didn’t tap, but after making it to the ropes, the results of her submission could be seen with her limping across the ring. That’s all Hendrix needed, so after some more maneuvering to increase more stress upon the leg. Once Eve started stumbling, Jessica hit a Superkick, followed by a Famouser for the victory.
Winner: Jessica Hendrix
Frankie - “Big Sexy” Santana’s manager is looking at her phone backstage when she’s approached by Jessica Hendrix. She assures Frankie that she’s not going to harm her, but wants to know why Santana did what she did. Hendrix goes on to talk about how successful their tag run was and stated if Santana wanted to break up or fly solo for a bit she would understand. She even considered Santana to be family, almost like a sister. Frankie admitted that she herself was confused, but had to support Santana either way, adding that she thinks Santana feels this is her one shot to go solo and aim to the top of the card. Jessica disagreed, stating that she’ll be a singles champion before Santana, and at Lethal Hearts she’ll prove it. With that said, The Austin native walked away, feeling proud of herself.
Kylie Monroe vs Tiffany Santana
Kylie Monroe vs Tiffany Santana
This match never took off because when Tiffany was waiting for her opponent, the tron showed Kylie Monroe brawling with an enraged Revy backstage. The two were trading blows in a brawl that spilled out to the arena and into the empty seats. Both women traded their fists for chairs and continued their assault upon one another. To separate herself from the rampaging specialist, Kylie started throwing chairs at Revy, who swatted them aside with her own chair. This was only a ruse as Monroe would surprise her with a chair-assisted Bloodshot enzuigiri from out of nowhere. Laughing at the downed body of her rival, Kylie walked off, chanting “Two More Weeks!” as medical staff and officials arrived on the scene.
A previously recorded video of Tarah Nova is shown. She’s at home dressed in casual clothing, and in a moment of rarity she’s seen wearing her glasses. She goes on to talk about the challenge that April Song has issued to her. Before she provides an answer, she goes on to talk about how everyone and their mama wants to fight her before she retires for good. While she has an idea of who her final opponent will be, she’s willing to grant April Song a shot at immortality. She talks about how Song was an Empire original like her upcoming opponent Stephanie Matsuda and she feels honored that in her last days she’ll be taking them both on. She then adds that she “well not go quietly into that good night”. She is The Shock Collar Siren of Professional Wrestling, and the world shall hear her “song” one last time in the midst of “April”. Ending in a wink, the camera fades to black.
Io Ishimori w/ Celes Dumont vs Kiki Kumiko w/ Cassidy Vega
From the moment the bell rang, this was an intense match. Both women came at each other with hard kick and knee strikes. Io was getting the upper hand, but Kiki shut that down with a brutal discus clothesline. A well-placed Indian Deathlock in the center of the ring drained any momentum Io had, but a ref distraction from Celes allowed Io to spit Asian mist into Kiki’s eyes. Cassidy Vega cried foul, but the ref didn’t see it so the match continued. The match was now in Io’s hand, who turned the tables with an Indian Deathlock of her own. Kumiko found a way to not give up and managed to reach the ropes. Once she was on her feet, a dropkick to the chest knocked her out of the ring. While the ref was holding back Io, Celes used that opportunity to knock Kiki back down with a running clothesline. When Cassidy saw this, she started brawling with Celes outside the ring, causing for the ref to eject them both. Io used this chance to hit Frog Splash to the outside upon a standing opponent! She rolled Kiki back into the ring for a pin, but Kumiko kicked out at two. Io attempted to end things with her Black Lotus somersault reverse DDT, but Kumiko reversed with with a roll-up for the surprise victory!
Winner: Kiki Kumiko
When Cassidy Vega comes out to celebrate, Celes attacks her from behind. When Kumiko tries to aid her, she’s attacked from behind by Ishimori. Celes gets a mic and states that the tag titles will be theirs “no matter what” at Lethal Hearts.
Madam Vega hosted a contract signing between the Co-Interim Lethal Angel Champions, Roni de Vil and Sweet Roxy. The general manager opened the floor for both competitors to speak to one another. Roni spoke first saying how ever since she lost the title at Homecoming, she’s been hard on herself. The fact that more barriers kept her from getting a proper rematch made things even worse. Roni declares that as of late she’s feeling more like her old self and guarantees that she will be getting back what;s rightfully hers. Roxy simply yawned and asked “are you finished?” Roni shook her head, stating that she’s not finished “until Roxy gets a Silver Bullet to the chest” referencing her signature move. Roxy then counters by saying that “women like Roni” were a dime a dozen. She brings up the other feds she’s held titles in such as WWH and OWA. She mentions how those places have “a thousand Ronis with no differences between them” and urges Roni to accept this reality. She feels the sooner de Vil accepts, the sooner she can start her “legendary reign”. It was Roni’s turn to roll her eyes, but she simply responded by signing the contract. Sweet Roxy follows suit and signs with her signature. Afterwards, Roxy asks her if she has insurance. When Roni looks confused, a hooded person slides into the ring and delivers a lightning kick Tramp Stamp to the “New Face of LAW”. When the person removes the hood, it turns out to be DiVa, Sweet Roxy’s former tag partner from OWA. Roxy stands over Roni’s stunned body and starts yelling about how this was a “do or die” situation for her. She adds that it was “absolutely imperative” for her to be the sole Lethal Angel Champion, and that nobody or nothing would stand in the way of her rise to “absolute power”. On that note, Tori de Vil comes running out for the save. Roxy and DiVa exit the ring and casually walk off as Tori checks on her sister. The final shot of the camera shows Roxy raising her interim Lethal Angel Championship in the air while yelling “there can only be one!”
