Dangerzone 91 began as Scott "The ICON" Thunder came out to the ring. Thunder announced that since he defeated Spaz in the number 1 contendership match at Rage Party, he is now entitled to receive a World Heavyweight Title shot at our next PPV, Payback 3.
Thunder also announced that since Payback has traditionally been "his" PPV, Thunder will once again be determining all the matches himself. Not TWO CEO Paramecium and not the Board of Commissioners, but the President of the T.W.O. Scott Thunder will sign the matches at Payback 3.
Then Mr. Malicious (who hasn't been seen in action for several months) came out to the ring. "What the hell are you doing here?" Thunder asked, "I thought you were dead!"
Mr. Malicious: I came here tonight because I have a special announcement to make.
Scott Thunder: This announcement better be worth my time because I don't appreciate being interrupted like this.
Mr. Malicious: You might find my announcement interesting. I understand you and Paramecium have been attempting to find out the "secret" identities of the T.W.O. Board of Commissioners for quite some time.
Scott Thunder: Did you find out who they are?
Mr. Malicious: Believe it or not, I came out here to reveal the identity of the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners. The big man who has been responsible for sending you and Paramecium those telegrams and signing the important matches that you don't want anything to do with.
Scott Thunder: Really? Who is it? Give me a name. I'll kill him!
Mr. Malicious: His name is Mr. Malicious.
Scott Thunder: What?
Mr. Malicious: That's right Thunder. It's me. For more than a year now, the Board of Commissioners has made your life and Paramecium's life a living hell and the person behind it all was me, Mr. Malicious!
Scott Thunder: I can't believe this! You traitor! We brought you to the T.W.O. in it's inception in 1997 and since then we've given you titles matches and all kinds of stuff. Why would you turn on us like this?
Mr. Malicious: Because Scott Thunder, the T.W.O. isn't just about you and Paramecium. It's also about the young guys and gals that want a chance to make a name for themselves and for over a year I have seen fit to making sure that the newcomers in the T.W.O. get treated fairly!
Scott Thunder: Why reveal yourself now? After all this time?
Mr. Malicious: Because I knew that Payback has typically been "Scott Thunder's" PPV, given to you by your tag team partner Paramecium, but I'm here to tell you that the Board of Commissioners is going to have a say in that PPV as well. Sure you may be able to put yourself in the main event, but you aren't going to short-change the young talent here and make fools out of them at Payback 3.
Scott Thunder: But what fun would Payback be if I didn't get to make fools out of jobbers like you?
Mr. Malicious: I'm not here to fight Thunder, but I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to kick your ass. No, I'm not here to fight but I do have a couple announcements to make tonight.
Scott Thunder: Fine Malicious, make your stupid announcements tonight, but listen to me right here and now because I'm only going to say this to you once. PAYBACK IS MY PPV AND NOT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM THE ICON OF BACKYARD WRESTLING, SCOTT THUNDER!!!
Mr. Malicious: First off, you and your buddy Paramecium will be in action tonight. I don't care how banged up the both of you are from last week's Rage Party PPV, you will compete tonight and your opponents will be John Cynic and Arachnid!
Scott Thunder: But Paramecium isn't even here! He's recuperating from his cage match!
Mr. Malicious: If Paramecium doesn't show, then you'll have to fight John Cynic and Arachnid in a handicapped match!
Scott Thunder: That's BS, I don't have to do anything.
Mr. Malicious: If you don't do as the Board of Commissioner's say, you will lose your No. 1 contention status and you will not face the World Champion at Payback 3.
Scott Thunder: Fine. What's your other announcement.
Mr. Malicious: Tonight, Stryknieghn will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against his longtime rival... Spaz!
Scott Thunder: No way! Spaz does not deserve a shot, I defeated him for No. 1 contendership remember?
Mr. Malicious: I remember. But that No. 1 contendership match was to decide the challenger for our Payback PPV. Tonight is not Payback, it's Dangerzone 91, therefore I will decide who is worthy of a title shot!
- On a side note, Mr. Malicious also announced that Paramecium & Scott Thunder would no longer be allowed to hold their weekly interview segment entitled "The Main Event," instead, tonight we would see a new weekly talk show emerge entitled "The Exclusive" and it would be hosted by the resident T.W.O. Interviewer who has great credibility and a reputation as an unbiased reporter.
