It was coming close to DreamState, and Chris Matthews is set to take on Vincent Lyons Jr. For so long, Vincent has been wanting to get back at Chris, for what happened at the Battle of Attrition. Chris had other plans, and it involved Championships. Chris wanted nothing to do with Vincent but sometimes, the plans have to change. Sunday is going to be the place where everything comes to an end. Vincent wanted this fight and Chris is more than willing to give it to him. When Chris found out that his match was going to be going up against Vincent, he wasn't happy. But he's going to take that off his shoulders and beat him down.
Chris is seen sitting down on top of a hill. He was dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt, jeans, black sneakers, and a black beanie on his head. He was thinking about all the things that are gonna go down at DreamState and needs to prepare for it. He needs to prove that there's not going to be anything to stop him from beating Vincent and continue the winning reign that he has going for him right now. It was dark outside and began to light pour down from the rain. He put his hands together and rocked back and forth a bit.
Chris knows that Vincent wants to shut Chris up once and for all. But Chris has never been known as the type of man to go speechless. People from the past have always been the one to want to shut Chris up. But Chris has always been known as the type of guy who isn’t the silent type. There has been Rock, Jacob Cass twice, Dystopia, and so many more. But Chris hasn’t been able to be shut up by anyone and he sure as hell won’t be shut up by a second rate wrestler like Vincent Lyons Jr. and his sister. He speaks softly to himself.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "Burning through the sky. I won’t be silenced. I will not crumble to anyone."
He closes his eyes and tilts his head back and feels the cold rain splashing onto his face. He takes off his hooded sweatshirt and is seen wearing a black t-shirt, black vest, and his dog tags worn around his neck.
Walking up the hill silently behind Chris happened to be none other than Pandora Barrett herself. She was wearing one of Chris t-shirts with a pair of skinny jeans and a bright smile. Slowly she made the journey up the hill coming to a hault behind where he was seated and wrapped her arms loosely around his neck giving him a hug from behind.
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "Whats up handsome? What has you up here thinking all by your lonesome?"
She pressed a quick kiss against his cheek and then allowed her arms to release her hold on his neck and stepped around to face him completely. His eyes opened and he looked down at her. He smiles down as the rain continues to fall from the dark sky.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "Sunday is what I’m thinking of babe. Trying to wrap my mind around Vincent and figure out the best strategy to defeat him. I know that I have what it takes to beat him. But it is more than that, doll. I feel like my streak is in danger. Lyons is a fighter and I know that. But Victoria could be a big factor in this match...but at the same time, I know you’re gonna be there to make sure that she doesn’t give him the advantage. Funny, but she is the reason why he’s so successful. But I know I have someone to counteract that advantage and that is you, babe. You and I are ying-yang. We cover each other's weaknesses and help build on the strength."
She tilted her head towards the side as those dark eyes watched his facial reactions. Pandora knew that Chris could beat his opponent inside the ring. She also knew his opponent's sister could be an issue.
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "Babe, you know I've got your back. Your not alone out there anymore but seriously, you don't need me. You already know your more talented, you've got more experience inside that ring, and your much easier on the eyes."
She winked, trying to lighten the tense atmosphere as much as possible. The malicious madam already knew who the winner was gonna be, there was no denying that fact. Chris breathes in softly as his soft eyes kept staring at his girl. He put his hand through her black hair. He uses his other hand and takes off the beanie on his head. His jet-black hair rested on his back and he chuckled.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "You know, you’re the same way dollface. You have those perfect eyes that will make any man fall in love with you. I guess I was the lucky one when we first met. I knew when I saw you, you were the one. I know we had problems in the past, but I don’t want anything to happen to us."
He smiles as he leans in and kisses her forehead softly. He never thought them working out again would be the last time. This time, he doesn’t want to lose Pandora or his family. He wants to be the best man that he possibly could. He knows that every man has a story and this is his. His story started when Pandora came back to him and now they are heading to DreamState where she could be the one factor that he needs to beat Vincent. His happiness is now and shall be happier at DreamState when he finally shuts Vincent up once and for all.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "After I beat Vincent, you and I are going to go away with the children. We’ll go somewhere where nobody can mess with us. Nothing and I repeat nothing will ruin us. Not the haters, other wrestlers, or people who don’t understand. Our love is unbreakable."
She closed her eyes feeling his hands in her hair making her instantly calm down her racing heart. Pandora drew in a deep breath and then opened her orbs looking at her handsome man's face.
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "You know what? I like the sound of that. I think a nice family vacation sounds like music to my ears."
Pandora leaned forwards resting her forehead against his own slightly just feeling his chest rising and falling against her body.
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "Use that. Use us going on a family outing as a driving force in this match. It's just one insufficient man inside that ring with a head full of illusions. You are going to be a driving force that rids him of all those silly boy fantasies."
She rose her arms upwards and placed them around his neck pulling herself closer to him. He looks at her and puts his arms around her waist. He kisses her lips and brings his hand and rests it on her back and places the other one on the back of her head. He slides his tongue into her mouth and eventually breaks it.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "We won’t go speechless against those two."
He smiles as the camera eventually starts to roll and they both look at the camera. He backed up slowly and turned towards it. He breathes in slowly and put his hands on his beard.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "Vincent, you have been begging and pleading to fight me for the longest time. Yet, you finally got it and you went quiet on Twitter. I want to know what the deal is. Do you fear me? Do you fear Pandora? Do you fear that you called an inmate out and finally regretted it? I want to know what goes through that little mind of yours man? Tell me. I want to know everything."
He shakes his head slowly as he looks down at the ground and walks towards the camera in the rain. He brings his head up and looks directly at the camera again.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "But you want to know what breaks my heart the most man? That you dared bring your sister into this fight. This fight isn’t hers nor is it Pandora. Nonetheless, here we are. We’re a few days away from this fight and you dare to still be silent. I honestly feel bad for you man."
He put his hand on his heart and showed some sort of pain. He gently slaps his heart a few times. It was almost like he was showing some type of emotion for Vincent and his sister.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "But what is going to happen to you or sister is going to be put on you man. You could’ve been a man and leave her in the back so we can finish this out like a couple of men. But no, you couldn’t do that, could you? DreamState, you wanted to see crumple...but I didn’t. Vincent, people like you are just the others who I faced before. They all tried to silence me but couldn’t. You’re no different than the rest and I can see that. I wish you could also."
He grinds his teeth silently and then stops. He wants to make sure that Vincent knows what he’s getting into.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "But you should understand what's gonna happen at DreamState won’t be pleasant. Do you think that Victoria is going to be your leverage? But you two never expected Pandora to have my back. You see, I and Pandora are something special. We've been through the wringer more times than not. This match? This match is going to be a testament to who wants it more. But what you need to understand is that I don’t need Pandora to watch my back against you. She is only here to keep that sister of yours at bay. To make sure she doesn’t interfere to help you. But if for some reason she does...well, Pandora will knock her senseless."
He lowers his hand as he continues to talk to the camera that is in front of him.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "The agony that you’re gonna feel is going to be unbearable. I know the feeling of what it's like to be outmatched and outclassed. Vincent, what have you done after losing your title to Sabertooth? You leeched onto Simon and Anderson. You thought you were a great leader but you weren't. Because of you, you guys lost the tag team titles to us crazy people. The pain that I’m going to inflict on you isn’t going to be normal. I know a thousand ways to hurt...but I only need one. You can talk about what you’ve done...but right now, you continued to choke. Battle of Attrition, you were the last man to enter the match but then was eliminated by me. That day, I eliminated three people. You, Johnny, and the current WWH champion, Havoc. It was there where I knew that I was going to eventually face. But if you’re still not sure Vincent, then I’ll let my girl tell you. But trust me, I was beating around the bush. Pandora? She doesn’t hold back."
He backs up and looks at her. He holds his hand out for her.
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "Babe, you want to rip him or Victoria a new one? Cause we know that when you start talking you really know how to slaughter the competition."
He continued to look at her and smiled even more. The raindrop hit his arms and it started to pour down. The couple is now drenched in the rain and their hair is completely wet. Chris loves it when she talks. Cause he knows that she can lay it down when she wants to. But what he wants to hear is her ripping both Vincent and Victoria apart. Pandora makes her way toward Chris. She holds his hand and smiles brightly towards the camera.
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "Vincent, you and your sister are no match for me or Chris. Sunday, we're gonna show you just how tough we are. Vincent, your nothing more then a little boy with a little boy fantasy. You made your fate when you dare challenge Chris to a fight. Its like you don't know him enough. When this match was announced, it sealed your doom. Chris Matthews is one of the toughest men to ever step foot in the ring of WWH and he and I knows it. We know that you're no match for him."
She let go of his hand and crossed her arms over her chest. She smiles at the camera.
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "But you already know that. Vincent I'm not going to feel sorry for you. Chris has more skills and experience in these types of situations. You? You're nothing when it comes to this man. Chris will destroy you and make you regret everything that you said about him."
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "And I'm going to enjoy it. I'm gonna enjoy hurting you, and making you understand that Chris Matthews ain't someone you should underestimate. Sunday I'm going to bring the fight to you. At DreamState, your little "fantasy" about beating me will just remain a fantasy. Here in the real world, I'm the fighter of which you wish you never met. At DreamState, I'm gonna prove that even people like you can bleed."
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "And we haven't forgotten about you, Victoria. You won't be able to help out at your brother or help him to victory. I'm in Chris' corner and you bet your ass that I'm gonna make sure to keep you at bay. If you interfere, I'll have a trick or two up my sleeve."
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "Remember, blood maybe thicker then water..."
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "Lets see how much blood will you spill. We're ready for you two and we're ready to put you down in the ground."
CHRIS ⭐ MATTHEWS "We'll see you two Sunday. This week, you two will never ever forget the name Chris Matthews."
PANDORA ✪ BARRETT "Or Pandora Barrett."
Chris throws the camera down to the ground. Pandora and Chris looks at each other as they kiss and the scene fades to black.

Dystopia has been a kingdom ruled by greed and tyranny for far too long. Nick Sanderson proved to just be a short moment of bliss for the good people of the WWH Universe, before it all fell back to the greed of Noah Hanson. Hanson’s greed however, would finally come to an end by the one known as Havoc, who has since brought his own brand of terror to Dystopia.
Havoc isn’t the only one bringing destruction to the lands of Dystopia, as a viking invasion threatens to take everything for their own. Truly, someone needs to step up and act as the hero Dystopia needs, and while he may still be young, and even have his own demons, The Young Lion has taken it upon himself to be that hero. The one to end the Madness of Havoc, the one to end the Invasion of Ragnarok.
Vincent, however, continues to create his own obstacles, making demands which led him into his own personal battle against Chris Matthews, the warrior who feels more machines than man, and seeks to terminate those in his path.
Vincent only has himself to blame, allowing his elimination at the hands of Matthews to get to his head. Only the lady Victoria, Vincent's sister has been able to keep The Young Lion truly grounded. The machine of a man known as Chris Matthews is merely a personal obstacle created by Vincent’s own ego. And while everyone has an ego to some extent, Vincent can be said to use his to better himself, and continue to try and be the best, others use it for power and personal gain. So for young Vincent, Matthews is more of an important obstacle than may be realized.
An empty iron throne sits in a hallway, there are no guards, no bannermen. Just a sole empty throne, in need of a king. The feeling of loneliness is broken by the sound of a voice, the voice of Vincent Lyons Jr.
“I do not deserve to sit upon this throne yet, but in due time I will.” he said, as the camera turned to reveal Vincent standing in the hallway looking at the empty throne, as he spoke.
“You sat there on a throne not unlike this one a few weeks ago Havoc, and I can not deny it. You deserve to sit there, World champion and Shogun. How can anyone deny the words you speak are true? They can’t, and the truth is Havoc your words are true...mostly. You are, no doubt as good as you say you are. However, people like you think they’re completely infallible, and THAT...is where I have a problem.” Vincent spoke to the camera with passion, showing in the eyes of his half-painted face.
“That myth was broken by Renee Jonae, nobody is infallible Havoc, not even you. I know, everytime you and I have encountered each other, it’s gone in your favor, but I also know that each and every time you do get one over on me, that just makes you think that much less of me...and the one day, when you don’t expect it I will take everything you love from you, I will take that World Championship from you.” said Vincent
Vincent grins to the camera, he does truly want to take the championship from Havoc, but could he have more planned? He has after all found himself as the guest referee for one of the biggest matches of the year.
“We may not be opponents at Dreamstate, but I do hope Havoc understands that this time...I am the one in charge, and my goal of “taking the championship” from you..could be construed many ways.” Vincent says with a smirk and wink.
“I’m kidding of course.” Vincent continued, “I’m not that type of guy, and I will be calling this match RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE.”
It’s unclear if Vincent's words ring true or not, and only time would tell what his ultimate goals were, and Havoc wasn’t the only one in this match Vincent had his eyes on, on the other end Fenrir Ragnarsson brings his viking army, and the force he calls RAGNAROK.
“You may think I would be upset that I didn’t get my proposed match with Fenrir, and I can tell you that you would in fact be wrong. My challenge to The Wolf of Odin was just to make him take notice, I want him to know that I am not going to stand in fear of Ragnarok, rather I will call it, out and take it head on.“ Vincent said. Keeping his tone rather serious.
“...But perhaps we shouldn’t do this alone.” a feminine voice called from down the hallway, it was of course Victoria Lyons, who most would consider the true brain power behind the duo.
“I still say we should seek some alliances, I think seeking alliances with Renee Jonae, or Johnny Cedrone could be good jumping off points.” said the female Lyons, “And I STILL believe we could make an arrangement with David Gibson.”
Vincent shook his head, in disagreement, “David Gibson hates me, and I hate him. I don’t see why you keep pushing me to form an alliance with him. Renee? Sure! Johnny? Sure! But the chance of David and I working together are about the same as John Blade becoming a world champion. It just ain’t gonna happen.”
“Some of the best alliances were formed from bitter enemies” explained Victoria.
“Look, it won’t work. Besides we tried this with The Pride, and that ended badly, I think we’re better off doing this alone.” said Vincent.
“Or we just fight alongside said individuals, watch their backs, have them watch ours, and come together to stop the destruction both Havoc and Fenrir threaten to bring.” said Victoria.
“This isn’t the fucking Avengers Victoria, we don’t need anyones help.” Vincent said, as he glared daggers at his sister.
“Calm down, I’m on your side here remember?” Victoria said, she met her brother with a daggerlike gaze of her own, and Vincent calmed down, taking a slight step back.
“Sorry..just, I think we can do this ourselves. We don’t need to declare anything formal. I already have good history with Renee and with Johnny, so fighting alongside them isn’t out of the question, but I really don’t want to go out there, all like AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!, or something.” Vincent explained.
‘I get it.” Victoria said with a nod, ”Just understand at some point you might have to call on some support...just something to think about.”
Vincent nodded, and he knew Victoria was right. For now this young warrior wanted to find the seat on the empty throne by his own accord.
“And what of Chris Matthews?” asked Victoria. “Do not forget your most immediate obstacle brother. If you don’t overcome Chris Matthews, how can you expect to overcome someone like Fenrir, or Havoc? That’s not a knock on Matthews of course, but there is a reason those two hold arguably the two most prestigious championships in the company.”
“I’m not worried about Matthews” replied Vincent, “I only wanted this match to prove to myself that Matthews got lucky when he eliminated me. I just want to make it clear to Chris Matthews that when it comes to a good one on one match, that I am better that he is. Whatever problems he has in Sanatorium is his business. I’ll beat Matthews, don’t worry.
“I’m concerned that maybe you're too focused on being the guest referee for the main event,” replied Victoria, “Just remember, you do have a match.”
Vincent furrowed his eyebrow, his sister's concern coming off to him as somewhat condescending, “I said not to worry about it.” he said, “I’ve beaten bigger threats than Matthews, he’s going to find out just who Vincent Lyons Jr is. You just make sure Pandora Barrett minds her business."
Victoria had grown used to her brother by now, so his attitude wasn’t something that bothered her, at this point she could only hope he knew what he was doing, “Of course” she replied, “Pandora will stay in her corner where she belongs if she knows what’s good for her, because The Lioness will be on the prowl, so long as you’re sure you have Matthews under control we should...….”
“I DO!”Vincent interjected abruptly, “I wouldn’t have made the challenge otherwise, Matthews likely isn’t even in the right frame of mind after his recent loss to Mr. Jinx, the man thinks he’s some sort of machine or something, and honestly if that’s the case I have no problem turning him into a scrap heap.”
Victoria simply nodded,perhaps it was best to keep her brother in this frame of mind, he seemed determined, and was not the same kid who walked into WWH a couple years ago, he had become one of WWH’s top talents, and she would be there to guide him every step of the way on his quest to be THE top talent in WWH.
Both twins looked at the empty throne in front of them, seizing it would be no easy task, but with a relentless attitude like Vincent's, that time could come sooner than later.
“I’m sorry I snapped at you” said Vincent, “I just want to be champion so bad, it’s been too long since I held a championship, and I’m tired of coming up just short. Dreamstate will the the beginning of a new chapter in my career. I’ll dispose of Chris Matthews, and then I can deal with Fenrir and Havoc."
Victoria nodded, “Just remember, you still have your honor, so be sure the right man wins."
“I already said I would.” replied Vincent, “I would ask that my sister doesn’t doubt my honor, I just intend to let both of them know who’s in charge, let them both know who calls the shots. I’m even prepared for the aftermath.”
“Aftermath?” asked Victoria curiously.
“I mean, I don’t even really NEED to screw them do I? After it’s all over, whoever loses is going to blame me, regardless of how it all goes down. These guys won’t admit to a true loss to each other, so the loser is going to make me the scapegoat.” explained Vincent.
“You’re probably right,” said Victoria in agreement, “Their egos will get the better of them, and the loser will likely be cross with you no matter what.”
“But will it be the viking, or will the mad king continue his reign?” said Vincent looking back to the throne, “Either of these men can take it, but once again it’s me who will decide the ultimate winner.”
Vincent approached the throne, and put a hand on one of the armrests, only touching it, still not sitting.
“Soon, I will take my seat upon this throne, I have been a “good hand” for far too long, and I won’t let Fenrir, Havoc or Matthews stand in my way.” he said, palming the armrest with his hand, “Speaking of you Chris, I’m sorry I had to make you a pawn in my quest to become champion. You threw me out of War of Attrition, and now I need to give you the receipt, it really is that simple. ”
Victoria stepped forward, appearing next to her brother and the throne.
“We know you are out to prove yourself as well Matthews.” she said, “Things haven’t been going too well, and you probably figure a victory over my brother, one of Dystopia’s top talents, is just what you need to pull yourself out of your recent funk.”
“But, we’re going to fight this time Chris, you won’t be able to just toss me out and call it a day. You’re going to need to defeat me, and anyone who has faced me in the past knows that there is little to no quit in The Young Lion.” said Vincent, removing his hand from the throne.
“The time is coming for this seat to be mine, I am ready to step up and be THE GUY for this company.” said Vincent, “I am ready to become the champion the fans need, and that they deserve. Dreamstate is going to be an interesting night, and anything can happen, but when the smoke settles, whoever the new champ ends up being, had best watch out, because The Young Lion will be on the prowl and you WILL be his victim."
“Fenrir, Havoc, Matthews,” chimed in Victoria, “The three of can’t possibly comprehend what my brother is going to bring to Dreamstate, and not just the three of you, but WWH as a whole. My brother and I will defend Dystopia and all of it’s honor, be you an outside threat from Sanatorium like Chris Matthews so their kingdom can gain some power, or someone like Havoc who threatens to destroy it from within due to their own greed and power, or even still, a viking invasion that threatens to seize it for themselves.”
“I am the Imperial that will restore order for the people.” said Vincent, “When I take my seat upon this throne, the fans will have a champion that they not only respect, because make no mistake of it, all three of you, these fans aren’t stupid, they DO respect you. You don’t have to like someone to respect them. But they will have a champion, a leader that respects THEM.”
Vincent stared at the camera, intensity and fire in his eyes as he spoke his closing thoughts, “A new era is coming to this kingdom, and anyone who stands in the way of The Lyons Dynasty, as we make our charge for the throne will be dealt with. I still hear the whispers about me, like I’m some sort of nobody around here, when I AM one of the mainstays of WWH and have been for almost two years now. I have the talent and ability to hang with the best, I’ve proven it before and I’ll continue to prove it. All I can say to anyone who stands in the way of me taking the throne for my own, I just ask that you…...BE PREPARED.”
Vincent and Victoria both stare into the camera, a serious look on their faces, as the scene comes to an end.
The Young Lion does seem ready for his upcoming battles, and beyond. Dreamstate looks to be one of the bigger nights of his career, one that can go really well, or incredibly wrong. He speaks of being ready, and pushing himself to try and step his game up more as he continues his quest for the throne, but a loss to Matthews could be a devastating blow to his morale, and overall progress on his quest.
And just what will he do as the guest referee, will he indeed call it right down the middle as he claims, or will his emotions get the better of him. Anything can happen, but at least nobody can deny that Vincent is prepared, hopefully everyone else is too.
