The scene shifts to an outside shot of the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado! We then transition inside the arena, where white fireworks shoot off in various patterns. We then head to a wide shot of the arena. The camera pans around, capturing the rabid crowd.
Kris Cruise: Welcome everyone to the final night of the 2018 Dynamic Duos Tag Team Tournament! I am Kris Cruise of Vertigo and joining me at this time is Flashpoint’s very own Geoff Penzer! Geoff, how are you doing tonight?
Geoff Penzer: I’m doing great, Kris. Tonight features the conclusion of FGA’s annual tag team tournament. We are now down to eight teams left. Only the best of the best are left in this tournament, Kris.
Kris Cruise: That’s right. We started out with sixteen teams this year. This year’s tournament featured less teams than last year’s, which was the biggest field ever for Dynamic Duos. But the competition this year was equally stiff.
Geoff Penzer: Indeed it was. Teams like Shootcamp, Cassius Reed & Daph the Destroyer, Riley Sweet & Aries Armadaist, The Resistance, Tommy Evans & Aurora and more all took part in this tournament. Those teams that I listed would be favorites to win in any other year. But they were one and done this year, which speaks to the skill of the teams left in this field.
Kris Cruise: Well let’s get right to it. In one of our quarterfinal matches, we’ve got the team of SHINIGAMI taking on The Sweet, Sweet World of Jimmy Sprinklez!
Geoff Penzer: There’s something equally sweet and equally creepy about Jimmy Sprinklez and his partner, Sherbet. On the surface, they appear innocent. But I’ve got this feeling in my gut that there’s something very off about them underneath the surface.
Kris Cruise: It isn’t just you getting those vibes from them, Geoff.
Geoff Penzer: I’m glad I’m not alone. With that being said, they were able to defeat the team of Aurora, who is a living legend and Tommy Evans, who is carving out his own legacy with a record setting reign over in HKW. But we cannot count out the team of SHINIGAMI. .PAAK and ASURA are going to provide an equally dangerous threat and may just go all the way.
Kris Cruise: In another quarterfinal match, the odd pairing of the Pride Champion Fujiko Mine and Izzy Anders will take on Sex & Mercy!
Geoff Penzer: I am shocked that Fujiko would agree to team with someone of Izzy’s ilk. I don’t trust Izzy. With that being said, I’d not surprised that the team has had success thus far. Fujiko is having a heck of a year. She’s arguably having the best year of anyone in FGA. Then you have Anders who, while I don’t like her, I’d be a fool to deny her talent. If they continue to stay on the same page, then they could very well take this entire tournament. But again, I don’t trust Izzy Anders. Maybe I’m wrong for this, but I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. I just hope that Fujiko gets what she wants out of this and doesn’t get hurt. She deserves better than being turned on.
Kris Cruise: I’ve seen these two in action up close. While they aren’t a traditional team like a lot of the other teams in this field, they do work well together. Fujiko even sacrificed herself and saved Anders by putting herself in harm’s way. Will Anders return the favor if the situation presents itself? Up next, we’ve got another quarterfinals match as the team of RubyWay takes on Ashley Marie Chase and Antoinette Sands!
Geoff Penzer: Sands comes from a family rich with wrestling talent. This business is in her blood. She’s had some success early on. But I do have to question her focus at times. It’s a good thing she’s got veterans like Ashley Sullivan around her, as well as her partner for this tournament, Ashley Marie Chase. Quiet as kept, Chase has racked up quite a few championships over in Hard Knox. Both her and Sands have recently won the Global Tag Titles over there and will no doubt look to bring that momentum into the remainder of this tournament. But across the ring from them is a team that many are calling the odds on favorite to win and that’s RubyWay. Kevin Hardaway is no stranger to FGA championships as he was the first-ever Pride Champion some time back. Both Hardaway and Ruby Tyler have proven that they can perform on the big stage. They’ve won their fair share of tag championships. If all goes according to plan, they could be the team that makes it out of the top half of this tournament.
Kris Cruise: Then finally, our opening contest of the night will feature Best for Business taking on The Bad Boys in our first quarterfinals match of the night.
Geoff Penzer: All four of these men have been around the business for awhile with varying levels of success. I wouldn’t be surprised if either team advanced. But if I had to make a pick, I’d have to lean towards The Bad Boys.
Kris Cruise: There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. That was the rundown of this evening’s quarterfinals matches. The four remaining teams will advance to the semifinals and then to the finals in our main event. The winning tandem will not only be crowned the 2018 Dynamic Duos Tag Team Champions, but they will have their choice of picking between which champions they want to go up against.
Geoff Penzer: You’d have to think that The Chaotics, the reigning World Tag Team Champions and Pendragon, the reigning United States Tag Team Champions, will have their sights set on the Finals.

• DYNAMIC DUOS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT (QUARTERFINALS) • Best for Business vs. The Bad Boys

When McKinnon returns, Gregory throws him down with a snap spinebuster or another two count! Gregory then grabs McKinnon by the hair and pulls him up onto his knees. He takes a step or two back before throwing out a superkick. But McKinnon catches his foot.

In the 8th minute, McKinnon reverses an irish whip, sending Gregory into the ropes. When Gregory returns, McKinnon brings him down with a frankensteiner! While Gregory is down, McKinnon begins to crawl towards his corner. Just then, Savell gets in and drags McKinnon back to the center of the ring.

He then follows up with another pelé kick, sending Savell through the apron and down onto the apron. When McKinnon gets back up, Gregory goes for another running high-impact clothesline. But McKinnon ducks. When Gregory turns around, McKinnon knocks him down with a spinning heel kick. A tag is finally made out to Snow in the 9th minute. Snow gets in and ducks a running high-impact clothesline attempt from Gregory. After Gregory bounces against the ropes and comes back, Snow throws him down with a snap scoop powerslam for a two count! He then shoots Gregory off into the ropes, where Savell makes the blind tag. When Gregory returns, Snow scoops him up from the side before delivering a belly to back suplex! Snow goes for the cover when Savell delivers a leg drop across the back of the neck. Savell puts the boots to him before pulling him back to his feet. When Snow returns after getting whipped into the ropes, Savell sets up for a back body drop when Snow stops and places him in a front facelock. He’s got Savell set up for a DDT when Gregory counters with a superkick to the back of the head. While Snow is dazed, Gregory runs into the far ropes. When he comes back, Snow goes for a back body drop. But Gregory slips down from behind. As soon as Gregory lands on his feet, McKinnon hops onto his shoulders from behind, flips back and spikes him with a reverse frankensteiner! While Gregory rolls out to the floor, Snow knocks Savell back with a hard European Uppercut! McKinnon then rocks Savell with a roundhouse kick to the back of the head! When Savell staggers back over towards Snow, he turns Savell inside out with a lariat takedown! He then pulls Savell back up, lifts him up high over his head and brings him down with the Winter Solstice (Crucifix Cutter) for the ONE, TWO, THREE!

In the parking lot opposite the Pepsi Center, a rusty ice cream van skids to a stop, belching some smoke from its exhaust as it comes to rest. The shutter flies up and the masked face of Jimmy Sprinklez leans out over the counter as a crowd forms around it.
Jimmy Sprinklez: 'Ow's it going, boys and girls!? It's me, yer old pal, the Sundae Driver, Jimmy Sprinklez! And guess who's with me...
A huge, bulbous green head appears beside him while Jimmy hands out frozen delights to the throng. Its owner waves enthusiastically.
Jimmy Sprinklez: That's right! It's my best friend and The World's Sweetest Frog, Sherbet! We're here at Dynamic Duos to make a lot of new friends and see a lot of new things!
Sherbet jumps up and down clapping her hands, so hard the van starts rocking.
Jimmy Sprinklez: And do you know what else, children? We're ready to learn a new word! A very big word indeed! Sherbet, if you please...
Sherbet claps her hands then spreads them apart, and like a rainbow, the word shoots out in sparkles: SHINIGAMI.
Jimmy Sprinklez: SHINIGAMI, girls and boys! My, what a long word that is! I wonder what it means?
Jimmy and Sherbet both do hand-to-chin thinking poses, and with the help of TV's old faithful wavy screen effect, we warp into a colourful library set. There, Sherbet, in a teacher's mortarboard cap, opens a big old book. Inside it, the word of the day is printed in big letters, above pictures of monsters in a cartoonish interpretation of the classical Japanese style. Jimmy looks at the book, then to the screen, bringing his hand to his mouth in surprise.
Jimmy Sprinklez: Well bless my stars, kids! Look at this! Shinigami - Japanese spirits of death! Isn't that interesting! It says here that Shinigami are a type of demon who can arrange for people to die, foretell their time of death, or even force them to commit suicide! Goodness me. I love being an ice cream man! You get to meet so many interesting people with interesting jobs!
But after reading a little more, he shakes his head sadly.
Jimmy Sprinklez: Oh no. It says here that some people believe Shinigami are lonely and want people to join them in the afterlife! Well, I don't fancy dying just yet, kiddies, and I'm sure Sherbet doesn't either.
Sherbet shakes her head. No, she doesn't at all.
Jimmy Sprinklez: But if ASURA and .PAAK are lonely, well, we simply can't have that, can we! Your pals Jimmy and Sherbet will be happy to play with them tonight and keep them company. We'll give them a playing with they'll never forget! Maybe we can even find just the right sweet treat for spirits of the dead to enjoy! I wonder what flavours of ice SCREAM ghosts like! Send your answers to the usual address, girls and boys, and Sherbet's favourite will win a goodie bag!
Something occurs to Sherbet as she snaps her fingers, and whispers in Jimmy's ear. He shrugs.
Jimmy Sprinklez: Yeah, or maybe they just nicked it from some cartoon, I dunno. Anyway, see you very soon indeed, children!

When the cameras cut backstage, the first sight the fans sees makes for a mixed reaction. Izzy Anders, the former FGA Undisputed Champion and Most Hated of 2017, sits on the locker room bench with her hands clasped together. She raises her head up, revealing a conflicted expression to the audience and whoever else may be nearby to see.
Izzy Anders: Just one night.
She mumbles to herself, but mumbling picks up on the audio devices around her. For a moment, she pauses to contemplate, but soon she smacks her hands into her face, squishing her cheeks briefly. Izzy shakes her head, ridding herself of any thoughts that may linger.
Fujiko Mine: There’s a lot than can be done in one night, Izzy.
The voice of the FGA Pride champion rings out, and less than a moment later she is revealed, leaning against the wall by the door that serves as the main entrance to the locker room she’s in.
Fujiko Mine: You and I both know how true that statement is.
There is a small performance of a coy smile as Fujiko says this.
Fujiko Mine: You, especially.
The only allusion to this is a small arch in her right eyebrow.
Fujiko Mine: ...we’ve proven that we can work together. You’ve kept to your word, and me? She adjusts the glistening Pride championship on her shoulder into a more comfortable position.
Fujiko Mine: There isn’t any doubt on my end. All these remaining teams are pretty great and all. I would be a fool to try and sell any of them short. But the two of us?
She wags a finger back and forth between herself and Izzy.
Fujiko Mine: The former Undisputed champion, and the best wrestler in FGA right now? That’s quite a tall order to try and take us down.
Izzy narrows her eyes at Fujiko, letting them rise and drop at the whim of her emotional state.
Izzy Anders: There’s a joke there, but I won't bother.
She takes one of her wristbands from off the ground, putting it back where it belonged.
Izzy Anders: Was this a pep talk?
Her voice lacks the bite that it normally would, but it has the intent.
Fujiko Mine: Statement of fact. I don’t think you need any sort of pep talk. Any motivation. It’s all here.
She doesn’t gesture, leaving things a bit ambiguous.
Fujiko Mine: We win out. There is no “or else” attached to it. We’re both pretty well versed in the ‘high stakes, back to the wall’ kind of atmosphere this tournament provides. If you really want a facsimile of a pep talk, it was right there for you.
She changes the angle of her head, so that she isn’t looking at Izzy.
Fujiko Mine: It’s none of my business what you’re thinking. It’s none of my business where your head is at now. But I know that once that bell rings, you are going to be one-hundred percent on the match. It’s not me questioning it. Because…
She fires a look at Izzy that punctuates her next statement.
Fujiko Mine: It’s more important to you than you’ve been letting on.
Izzy Anders: It’s pretty hard to determine anything that I’m up to, Fujiko. The importance to me is simple. I want to win.
Izzy Anders: I just hope that tonight isn’t another night of you slamming me into the lockers. That wasn’t exactly fun, which, by the way, I have something to say on that.
The Mindkiller stands from her place, closing the gap between her and Fujiko.
Izzy Anders: Just because I’ve been playing the good woman here and trying my best to mend a bridge that probably never existed doesn’t mean I’m open to taking shit from anyone, especially you.
Izzy looks the Pride Champion up and down.
Izzy Anders: So don’t ever do something like that again...please?
Fujiko chuckles softly to herself. She makes a move to put herself into a defensive stance, but thinks better of it and just returns a look back at Izzy.
Fujiko Mine: Oh, I see. So after poking and prodding at me, when you knew I was upset with what happened earlier in the night...you are, at best, annoyed that you questioned my mindset, and I put you on your back foot for a change? Okay.
She looks away from Izzy, and towards the door.
Fujiko Mine: People keep wondering, keep asking me if I’m worried you’ll turn your back on me during this tournament. They point to the Gold Rush rumble, and remind me how you eliminated me as soon as you had a chance. But I figure differently.
She laughs, humorlessly.
Fujiko Mine: If your goal is to stab me in the back, I figure you wouldn’t do it yet.
She taps her chin with her index finger.
Fujiko Mine: You’d wait until the finals. It would make the most sense there. Cause the most heartbreak. Be the most devastating. In the middle of the match, or if we lost, you’d strike. You’d find the moment where it caused the most damage. “The best revenge is the kind you never see coming.” If that was your aim at all.
Fujiko cooly looks down at her championship, then at the ground near Izzy’s feet.
Fujiko Mine: You can do whatever you like, Izzy. Including be displeased that I put you off-balance. You can even ask me not to do it again. But let’s get one thing completely clear.
She locks a cold expression at the former Undisputed champion, her words coming out monotone.
Fujiko Mine: I am not that girl you beat a few years ago. And while I’m over the past, don’t you think for a second that I haven’t learned from it all. I’ve proved I’ll literally push you out of harm's way if it means we can win this tournament. But that’s this tournament.
She pushes herself off the wall, and lets the Pride championship slide off her shoulder. She regrips it, so that it dangles from her hand. The tone in her voice warms a little.
Fujiko Mine: I honestly don’t mind if you wanna ‘take off the muzzle.’ We don’t even have to speak, if you’re really feeling some type of way about it. I don’t need shades of Izzypop. I don’t need you to try and ‘mend the bridge that might not have been there’, as you put it. I don’t need niceties from you. You wanted me here, knowing full well what you were getting, what you were walking into. If you wanna be the Izzy that kicked her way out of FGA? Go for it. But don’t expect me to care.
She offers a simple shrug.
Fujiko Mine: Some people heard your suggestion that I might turn on you and actually bought stock in it. But you wanna know something?
She gives Izzy a thoughtful expression.
Fujiko Mine: It wouldn’t happen. Because despite me quoting what the best revenge is, Izzy? She pauses for just a moment.
Fujiko Mine: That wouldn’t be it for me. Even if you struck like a viper? I’ve already got my “revenge.” So I’m just fine.
Her thick lips curl into her midwest sweet smile, her eyes joining in to tell the story. Izzy’s eyes widen for a moment, as if there was a switch tampered with in her head. Yet, it subsides for a moment.
Izzy Anders: Oh my freakin’--
She mumbles to herself before giving Fujiko an incredulous look.
Izzy Anders: Poking and prodding you? You really do think so little of me that you thought that I was trying to fuck with you? Every time that I do anything, it’s met with this backlash and it’s not because that any of my tirade against this corrupt company--which, by the way, I was right about. Look to how people like Stryker got screwed and over and tell me that I’m wrong.
Fujiko Mine: I can’t, but Jimmy and I? We handled that problem. Brandon’s gone. Because of Jimmy. And Izzy, please. You can’t sit here with a straight face after suggesting that I might turn on you and not call that you prodding me.
Izzy Anders: It wasn’t prodding you. Prodding you would have been more than that. I was checking to see if you were okay, because you were thrown off after Natalie came and tried to apologize. Is it such a foreign concept that just maybe, JUST MAYBE, I care about your well-being?
She taps on the side of her head with a derisive chuckle.
Izzy Anders: No, you can’t get that because you only see me as your enemy. That’s it. Which is asinine to me because what reason do you have to hate little ol’ Izzy Anders? Because I said something about you when I was losing my mind? With the way you keep parading around the whole “I’m not the same woman” schtick, it’s like you’re trying to prove something. Is that it?
Izzy holds for a beat, staring directly into Fujiko’s eyes.
Izzy Anders: Do you just think of me like this because you couldn’t beat me?
The Mindkiller lets out a scoff.
Izzy Anders: I just realized that I don’t need to preach to you or try to convince you of anything. I finally got it. I’ve been trying to see you for everything that I’d hope you’d be. I’m a realist, and I forgot that for a second. I knew you wouldn’t be open arms and smiles, but I didn’t expect you to be like this.
She pauses again, trying to catch her calmness.
Izzy Anders: While I’m sitting here thinking of the world of you, buying into the Apex Goddess hype, and seeing as everything that I wanted to be when I started out--you’re over here, thinking that I’m making plans to ruin you. Or that everything that I do is a personal attack against you.
Izzy Anders: We’re not going to win DDT3 like this. I’m fucking stupid for thinking that this could really work. I should have gotten the message from the training meeting.
Izzy sits down on the bench, her shoulders sunk down and her head lowered. Her voice reaches Fujiko, but it is no longer directed at her.
Izzy Anders: Whatever, man.
Izzy Anders: Whatever.
Fujiko doesn’t say anything the entire time, and waits for a moment before responding.
Fujiko Mine: For as smart as you are...you’re way off the mark, Izzy.
She shakes her head at the Mindkiller. Her expression does not present condescension.
Fujiko Mine: I don’t think of you as my enemy. If I did? I might actually buy stock in people talking about me turning on you. I’ve not forgotten the past, but I’m not waiting for the opportunity to destroy you over it. Why?
She takes a step towards Izzy, forcing her to meet her eyes.
Fujiko Mine: Because you’ve done that to yourself enough.
There is a bit of a mean smirk on her face.
Fujiko Mine: I’m not eaten up over “not being able to beat you”, Izzy. It hasn’t impacted my career, nor has it defined it. This…
She taps the Pride championship.
Fujiko Mine: ...has. Beating Molly Reid, Chris Madison, Tyler Storm, and Seth Iser has helped define my FGA career. And quite frankly, you’ve been keeping a copy of me living rent free in your head for years. On the flip side? I’ve not been trying to redeem myself against you, or prove anything to you. If that hurts your feelings, so be it. But let me ask you something, Izzy...
Her gaze softens.
Fujiko Mine: Why do you think I agreed to be your partner?
Izzy doesn’t seem exactly ready to respond, but sighs to herself.
Izzy Anders: Why? So you finally get this speech out?
Her words don’t carry the venom it would have against people like Johnny Karma or Noelle Smith. Fujiko seems genuinely surprised by her answer.
Fujiko Mine: Is that what you think? That, if I was still so upset with you...I would “torture myself” by teaming with you just to tell you all of this? I could’ve accomplished that with a phone call and a face-to-face meeting.
A smile filled with pity is all Fujiko affords her now.
Fujiko Mine: You think I’m bitter that you’ve beaten me twice? That you managed to become World Champion before me? You think I’m still not over what you’ve said to me, and about me? Hah. To hold onto that anger? Would be like swallowing poison myself and expecting you to die from it.
She shakes her head again.
Fujiko Mine: I agreed to be your partner because you and I? We can actually win DDT3. We can actually be Tag Team champions. But, I don’t need you doing your brand of checking in on me for that to happen. We just have to not try and kill each other out there. Think you can accomplish that? Because I already proved that I can…
She makes a move for the door, opening it and looking at Izzy over her shoulder.
Fujiko Mine: See you out there.
No response, no venom, not a word at all from the Mindkiller. Instead, Izzy meekly lifts up a thumbs up before slumping back down. Her head doesn’t raise to meet Fujiko’s gaze at all.

• DYNAMIC DUOS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT (QUARTERFINALS) • Fujiko Mine & Izzy Anders vs. Sex & Mercy
The match starts with Mercy sucker punching Fujiko with a Superman Punch as soon as she turns around, knocking the FGA Pride Champion through the ropes and to the floor! This brings in The Mindkiller, who knocks Mercy back with forearm strikes. She then takes Mercy and goes for an irish whip. But Mercy reverses, sending Anders into the ropes. When Anders returns, Mercy leapfrogs over her. Anders ducks underneath. But as soon as she stands back up, Kassouri knocks her down with a spinning heel kick!

The scene opens up inside an empty movie theater. Well, mostly empty. As the camera zooms in, ASURA and .PAAK are shown sitting in the center of the sixth seating row. A massive bulk box of Hi Chew rests in .PAAK’s lap. ASURA totes a giant bag of assorted Skittles.
.PAAK: Hi darlings! It’s time for your absolute favorite portion of Dynamic Duos. Your ear gates have the chance to be serenaded by me and ASURA’s sultry voices! Aren’t you all just so lucky!
Taking a handful of the sugary treats, ASURA deposits them like the rainbow waterfall they are into her mouth. She smiles, enjoying the taste.
ASURA: They’re extremely lucky. In fact, this is the best day of their life, especially to our opponents. You see, we’re here in a theatre because we’ve been watching their child-friendly antics and we have to say that we like the cut of the jib. They’re nice, respectful, and pretty cute, despite what other people might believe, due to their costumes. I like them. It’s endearing.
She gets more of the Skittles.
ASURA: Endearing only gets you so far, isn’t that right, .PAAK?
.PAAK: Enduring may get you in the door. But you need a little bit more than that to get to the top and win it all.
She grabs a strawberry piece of candy and unwraps it.
.PAAK: You two have probably noticed this already, but we aren’t like you. Sure we, might might be cute. Hell, we’re actually pretty sexy. But we aren’t nice. We aren’t respectful.
ASURA: But for the both of you? We don’t mind you two, so we’ll shed you all a little of respect. Treasure that. Cherish it like nothing else matters in the world because when we have to beat you down, we’ll do with the utmost care because we do humor you two. But don’t think that us humoring you both is a sign of us falling for the allure that you all brought to the table. We’re not getting beat like Tommy Boy and Thundertits did. Not us, boys and girls!
ASURA’s dig at Tommy and Aurora causes .PAAK to burst out into laughter.
.PAAK: Damn it…
She takes a moment to compose herself.
.PAAK: Guess it all boils down to this—you’re both going to get this work. Not because we hate you. Not because we’re vindictive. But because it’s what’s got to be done for us to get to the finish line. We won’t hold back for you two, or anyone else.
She pops that Hi Chew into her mouth and turns towards her tag team partner.
ASURA: We’ll see you all very soon. It’s a brand new episode where everything isn’t so sweet. We like you both enough, but we got something to prove. We’re not going home without that trophy and everything is dead in our wake. That’s what Shinigamis do and that’s what we’re about.
