The show began backstage as Billy HaRdCoRe arrived at the arena. Suddenly, he was attacked by Paramecium & Scott Thunder. After beating Billy senseless, Paramecium & Scott Thunder went to the ring.
Scott Thunder grabbed the microphone and began complaining about the unfair treatment he and Paramecium have received ever since Mr. Malicious seemingly took charge of booking on Dangerzone. He then demanded that Mr. Malicious come out to the ring and face the ICON like a man.
Malicious did and he had a few words for Paramecium & Thunder. Because they had decided to begin tonight's Dangerzone by doubleteaming Billy HaRdCoRe in a sneak attack, there would be repercussions.
First off, Paramecium will see what it's like being outnumbered when he takes on Skarekro & Skavenger in a handicapped match, tonight! Also, Mr. Malicious announced that he will be taking away all booking rights at Payback 3 (our next PPV).
Scott Thunder: But that's my PPV.
Mr. Malicious: Not this year Thunder. In fact, if you continue to defy my authority I will take away your World Heavyweight Title shot as well.
Scott Thunder: You can't do that!
Mr. Malicious: I can do whatever the Board allows me to do, and since I am the chair of the Board, they will allow me to do whatever I see fit. Especially when it comes to disciplining you and Paramecium!
Scott Thunder: This is Paramecium's company! He started it and he is still the CEO! And I am still the President! So unless you want a war on your hands, you will back off and leave me my PPV, Payback 3!!!
Mr. Malicious: You'd better watch your threats Thunder because the Board of Commissioners has a lot of influence in the locker room. Just think of us as a union for the T.W.O. Superstars. We are watching out for their best interests and if you or Paramecium threaten those interests and make this company an unfriendly working environment for it's employees, then we will strike and you won't have a T.W.O. to command!
Paramecium: This bickering is getting us nowhere. I am still the CEO and I still have the power to sign matches. I think even you Mr. Malicious would agree that I have to power to sign at least 1 match on my own Dangerzone broadcast.
Mr. Malicious: I guess one match wouldn't hurt.
Paramecium: Then we're agreed. We will solve this dispute between you and Scott Thunder and we will solve it TONIGHT!!! At Dangerzone 93! When Mr. Malicious and Scott Thunder step in this ring 1-on-1. The winner will receive exclusive rights to sign whatever matches he sees fit at Payback 3!!! Will the 2 of you agree to these terms?
Scott Thunder: I still don't think my authority at Payback should be disputed. Even so, I will agree to the match just to shut him (Malicious) up!
Mr. Malicious: I also agree.
Paramecium: Then it's settled. After tonight, the winner will be allowed to sign whatever matches he sees fit at Payback 3.
Mr. Malicious: Now that that's settled, I believe it's time for our first match of the evening.
Paramecium: And what is that?
Mr. Malicious: Your match with Skarekro & Skavenger.
