Lillian Garcia: The following contest is the ‘Money in the Bank’ Safe Match! The rules are simple; the first
man to open the safe and retrieve the briefcase within is declared the winner, earning himself a shot at the GameTalk Undisputed
Championship, any time, any place, up until but not limited to WrestleMania VI! Now, suspended above the ring is a key; once
the key is retrieved, the location of the safe will be revealed.
Back off, I’ll take you on!
Headstrong, I’ll take on anyone!
Lillian Garcia: Making his way to the ring, from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada…weighing in at around two hundred twenty
[Hybrid steps onto the scene, receiving a negative reaction from the fired-up crowd, who are unbecoming to newcomers. They
jab and jeer at the young superstar as he makes his way from out of the makeshift stage, a theatre, and down a line of cleared
street, security desperately trying to keep the fans at bay. Hybrid appears a little uneasy, as if he were being presented
before a pack of ravage dogs, ready to be devoured at any moment. Not wasting any more time, he climbs into the ring, to safety,
and awaits the biggest challenge of his career.]
Lillian Garcia: Introducing next, from Jonesboro, Jackson, Louisiana…weighing in at around three hundred forty pounds,
he is the INTERCONTINENTAL NEO-X CHAMPION…MUUUUUUUUUUUSE!
Devils that drive us…
Do not discriminate…
A state of mind…
That becomes the ultimate end…
[The doors of the theatre shoot open as Muse explodes outwards, moving with a fierce purpose. On his face, there sits
his expressionless white mask, enigmatic yet charming; resting over his shoulder, his pride and glory, the Intercontinental
Neo-X Championship. He moves with purpose; a seething hatred seems to permeate the air around him as the tribal beat pulses
from the bass-heavy PA system, echoing throughout the streets of New York. The crowd does not know how to react, afraid to
boo him, scared to cheer him; they just stare in awe of the sadistic giant, careful not to get too close, for fear of their
A sociopath with empty eyes…
And no soul…
Paranoid psychotic heart of stone…
My blood runs cold…
[Muse climbs into the ring as Hybrid puts as much distance between them as possible. He centers himself and then looks
at his feet, soon throwing his head back and whipping his hair from his face. The ring is illuminated in a rain of blue flares,
erupting from the ring posts. The music fades as Muse moves to his corner, eyeing Hybrid very carefully.]
Lillian Garcia: Now, from Cambridge, England…weighing in at around two hundred forty pounds…JOOOOOOOOOOOOOHNNY
I’VE GOT THE POWER!
[As Johnny Perfect steps through the doorway and out onto the streets, the crowd is thrown into a rage. They yell and
scream and hiss at the most hated man in sports entertainment, doing whatever they can to show their disapproval. As cocky
as ever, and unaffected by the crowd, Johnny moves down to the ring with a smile on his face, despite the various objects
being hurled at him. As he pulls himself up onto the apron, a “Johnny sucks!” chant breaks out, much to the pleasure
of Hybrid, who thought his reception was bad.]
Lillian Garcia: Last but not least, from BROOKLYN, NEW YORK…weighing in at around two hundred fifty-two pounds, he
is ONE-HALF of the GTWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIN!
Crazy! But that’s how it goes…
Millions of people… living as foes…
Maybe… it’s not too late…
To learn how to love… and forget how to hate…
[This time, the crowd goes wild. They swarm around the ring and the entrance to the theatre, waiting to welcome their
hometown hero. Every single person in attendance is cheering, highly anticipating the arrival of Devin. And so, he appeared,
but not out of the entrance, but from atop the scrolling marquee. The crowd erupts into a sheer frenzy, a riot; Devin takes
off his shirt and throws it into the air and before long, he is soaring through the sky, performing his version of the Shooting
Star Press, the High Sign. He lands in the crowd who have extended their arms to catch him, and they slowly move him towards
the ring. Devin at last is rolled between the ropes and takes his corner. The bell rings, and the match is underway.]
[Now, there is a ladder centered in the middle of the ring. High above that is a key, tied to a string, and hanging from
a crane. Each superstar takes a brief moment to think out a strategy, a plan of attack; soon, Devin goes charging into Hybrid,
taking him down, and Muse and Johnny engage in a test of strength. Devin starts to hammer away while Muse tosses Johnny to
Jim Ross: And what a match we have for you here tonight! The second-ever ‘Money in the Bank’ challenge, right
here in New York City, at WrestleMania V!
Jerry Lawler: One of these four men will have a guaranteed shot at – OH WHAT A MOVE BY MUSE! Johnny Perfect is down!
Devin pulling Hybrid up by his hair…lowering his head, now…DDT! Devin planting Hybrid headfirst into the mat!
J.R.: Now look at Muse, he’s adjusting the ladder…but here comes Johnny from behind! Muse falls to his knees
as Johnny rams Muse into the ladder!
King: And Devin returns the favour! Johnny meets steel, and both Muse and Perfect are down! Look, Devin starts to scale
J.R.: But Hybrid’s up to stop him! Hybrid running up the opposite end of the ladder…but he’s stopped
by Muse! Muse wraps an arm around Hybrid’s neck and smashes him into the ground!
King: Look! Johnny Perfect is up, and he’s climbing the ladder! Devin’s swatting at that key…but Johnny
with a hard right hand to Devin! Oh, what action here tonight!
J.R.: Muse has finally finished disposing of Hybrid…and now he looks to the ladder…Devin and Johnny vying for
position on top…but…what is Muse doing? He’s tipping the ladder! MUSE IS TIPPING THE LADDER!
King: There is no floor…just thousands of raging fans! OH NO!
[The ladder falls, Devin and Johnny with it. The ladder bounces off the ropes, but the two it supported are not so lucky;
Devin and Johnny Perfect disappear among the fans, possibly going all the way to the ground. However, within seconds, Devin
reappears, hoisted up into the air, and is transported back to the ring. Johnny Perfect does not reappear; instead, a crowd
of people seem to be stomping away at him.]
J.R.: Where is Johnny? Where did he go? That’s a ravenous crowd out there! If they have their way with him, it could
all be over!
King: Well, Devin is back in the ring and…recovering…Muse and Hybrid exchanging blows here…a right by
Muse BUT HYBRID DUCKS UNDER IT! He takes Muse by surprise and hits him a side-slam! Hybrid the only man up now!
J.R.: He’s going for the ladder…setting it up in the middle of the ring…both Devin and Muse slowly coming
to…Hybrid up the ladder…what’s he going to do? He’s reaching for the key…but he stops! HYBRID
OFF THE LADDER WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY! HYBRID TAKES DOWN BOTH MUSE AND DEVIN AND ALL THREE MEN ARE DOWN!
King: What a high-risk manoeuvre there…Hybrid putting everything on the line there to gain the advantage…whether
or not it worked, well, we’ll just have to wait and see…
J.R.: As expected, Hybrid is the first one to come to…the crowd is growing rowdy here…he’s slowly climbing
the ladder…BUT MUSE GRABS HOLD OF HIS FOOT! WITH A MIGHTY TUG, HYBRID FALLS CHIN-FIRST INTO THE LADDER! MY GOD!
King: Now it’s Muse who’s scaling the ladder! He’s up, up, but now so is Devin! Devin climbing up the
opposite side of the ladder! Both men are at the top, both these team-mates, and they’re going blow for blow! Devin,
Muse, Devin, Muse, Devin, Muse! Muse! MUSE! Devin teetering…teetering…but Muse stops him! He…he’s
doing something…and…oh no! NO! HE’S UNDERHOOKING THE ARMS…ART OF WAR! ART OF WAR! ART OF WAR TO DEVIN
OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER!
J.R.: MY GOD! HE COULD BE BROKEN IN HALF! Muse is trying to catch a second wind here…but look! Hybrid! HYBRID! HYBRID’S
CLIMBING THE LADDER AND…AND HE’S GOT THE KEY HYRBID HAS GOT THE KEY!
[The crowd is in awe, wondering what is about to transpire next. All eyes turn to the scrolling marquee, waiting for the
location of the safe to be revealed. Soon, music is heard…and then an image is revealed. It’s another theatre…a
play is going on…it’s…it’s CATS! The camera zooms in on the safe, right in the middle of the stage!]
J.R.: Well, this is awkward…the safe is somewhere here on Broadway…in a theatre! Muse and Devin don’t
know what to think…Hybrid climbing down the ladder…but Devin with a quick burst to the ropes! He jumps up, bounces
off, twists around, and dropkicks Hybrid in the back! Hybrid goes crashing flat into that ladder!
King: And there goes the key! The key goes flying through the air and MUSE CATCHES IT! MUSE HAS THE KEY! He’s not
wasting any time, he’s slowly climbing out of the ring…and he’s out! The crowd dispersing to allow room
J.R.: Devin following suit! Devin slides out of the ring and…and what’s this? Someone’s handing him…a
baseball bat! What? Devin with the baseball bat…he’s chasing after Muse!
King: And finally, here comes Hybrid…still a little weary…all three men are out of the ring and are making
their way to the first theatre that says ‘CATS’! Muse moving quickly…Devin close behind…but all of
a sudden he stops! Devin turns around and RAMS THE BAT INTO HYRBID’S CHEST! HYBRID KNEELS DOWN!
J.R.: Devin…raising the bat into the air…the crowd is going wild…this could be the end…! But…but
wait! Devin turns around and…and HE THROWS THE BAT IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION! THE BAT GOES WHIRLING THROUGH THE AIR
AND STRIKES MUSE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
King: GOODNIGHT! Muse has got to be out…Devin making his way towards the fallen giant...he’s looking for the
key…rolling Muse over but…!
J.R.: Muse is still awake! He shoots his hand outwards, and grabs a hold of Devin’s neck! Devin is in shock!
King: Muse climbing to his feet…is he going to do it? Devin is up, and MUSE CHOKESLAMS DEVIN! DEVIN CHOKESLAMMED
ONTO THE PAVEMENT!
J.R.: BUT HYBRID FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! HERE HE COMES FLYING THROUGH THE AIR, HE WRAPS AN ARM AROUND THE HEAD OF MUSE AND
CONNECTS WITH A TREMENDOUS SPINNING DDT!
King: And there goes the key! Hybrid scampering after it, the crowd backing away…but wait…there’s a little
boy coming out of the crowd! He…HE KICKS HYBRID IN THE FACE! OH, THE HUMANITY!
J.R.: But he’s not disillusioned…he fights through the embarrassment and scrambles for the key…he has
it…but now both Devin and Muse are up! They’re slowly making their way towards Hyrbid…Muse gaining ground,
Devin still feeling the effects of that chokeslam…
King: Muse picking up a garbage can on the way! Muse…Muse…MUSE! Muse smashes the garbage can over Hybrid’s
head! There goes the key!
J.R.: But Devin now! Devin jumps up into the air and drives Muse’s face into a streetlamp! NO!
King: Devin is the only man up…someone from the crowd tosses him the key…and he’s on his way! Look! The
theatre is in sight!
J.R.: Yes…Devin has a clear path to the theatre…he’s going…but…but what?
[Sure enough, a rumble is heard from behind Devin…everyone turns around to see a taxi blaring through the street,
honking wildly. Devin starts to run, be he is no match for the high-speed of an automobile! The taxi floors it, and strikes
Devin from behind, flipping him onto the hood, into the windshield, and then up over the roof and back onto the pavement!
Devin is…Devin is down…]
J.R.: WHAT IN CARNATION? DEVIN WAS JUST HIT BY THAT TAXI! Look, the driver door is opening…
King: Who is it? It’s…it’s…JOHNNY PERFECT!
J.R.: Hybrid and Muse can’t believe it…they go running towards Johnny, who has just picked up the key…but
Muse and Hybrid with a double clothesline! Johnny is down, and now they’re stomping away at him!
King: But where is the key? I think Johnny still has it…
J.R.: Muse and Hybrid exchanging words…Muse nods his head and picks Johnny up, lifting him on his shoulders…Hybrid
climbing to the top of the taxi cab…they’re pointing at each other…
King: And Muse falls back just as Hybrid leaps into the air! Johnny lands on his back, and here comes Hybrid with the Annihilation!
HYBRID FLYING THROUGH THE AIR, CHANGING HIS PITCH…HYBRID HEAD-FIRST INTO THE STERNUM OF JOHNNY PERFECT! MY GOD, WHAT
A DOUBLE TEAM MOVE!
J.R.: But now Devin is up…finally…he’s also climbing to the top of the taxi…it looks like he’s
going to go for the High Sign! The crowd is rallying behind him! But…but wait! Hybrid is up, and he’s on top of
the cab! Both men are on top of the cab now, and they’re exchanging blows!
King: How Devin is able to stand is beyond me…looks like he has the upper-hand! Hybrid…Hybrid is put into position!
WE ALL KNOW WHAT’S COMING NEXT!
J.R.: DEVASTATOR! DEVASTATOR! DEVIN JUST PUT HYRBID THROUGH THE ROOF OF THE TAXI!
King: LOOK! MUSE HAS THE KEY! He’s climbing into the taxi…AND AWAY THEY GO! HYRBID IN THE BACK SEAT, MUSE IN
THE DRIVER’S SEAT, AND DEVIN ON THE ROOF, HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE!
[The taxi goes roaring through the streets, people of all sorts diving out of the way. Muse blares the horn as he steers
up onto the curb, rocking the cab back and forth. Hybrid is slowly coming to in the back seat as Devin loses his grip, hanging
onto the shredded metal hole in the roof with a single hand. Suddenly, without warning, Muse opens his door and bails out
of the taxi, hitting the sidewalk and rolling to a stop. The taxi, however, continues speeding ahead, straight into the wall
of a theatre. Debris and dust go flying into the air as the taxi explodes into a million pieces.]
J.R.: NO! NO! MY GOD! NO! NO! WHAT HAS JUST TRANSPIRED HERE?
King: Has Muse just…just killed Devin and Hybrid? Muse…he’s approaching the flaming wreckage…as
well as that now-gaping hole in the wall…
J.R.: THE PEOPLE INSIDE ARE SCREAMING AND RUNNING IN EVERY WHICH DIRECTION! THE PLAY HAS STOPPED, AND PURE CHAOS HAS ENSUED!
King: Muse with the key…stepping over a pile of bricks…wait! WAIT JUST A MINUTE! THERE’S A SHADED SILHOUETTE
BEHIND THE RISING SMOKE! Who could it be?
J.R.: It’s Devin! Devin! Devin is alive and well! He comes charging out of nowhere and NAILS MUSE WITH A SPEAR! He’s
King: Muse down…Devin trying to pry the key free…BUT HE’S HIT ON THE BACK WITH…WITH THE HOOD OF
J.R.: Sure enough, it’s Hybrid! Hybrid! Hybrid using the hood of the taxi as a weapon! What a sickening crack! Another!
King: Hybrid finally relents…taking the key…he’s making his way through the concession area and into
the auditorium…dozens of people rushing past him!
J.R.: He’s all alone! He’s got a clear path to the stage! LOOK! THERE IT IS! THE SAFE IS THERE! NO!
King: Hybrid sprinting now…he makes his way through a row of seats and down the aisle…he’s up onto the
stage! HYBRID! HYBRID!
J.R.: He puts the key into the safe…but…but? It’s not going in! The key isn’t fitting! What in
blazes is this?
King: LOOK! Look! Behind the curtain! It’s Muse! Somehow, someway, Muse has emerged from behind the stage curtain!
Hybrid doesn’t see him approaching…
J.R.: Muse with a rope! He’s strangling Hybrid! Muse trying to choke the life out of Hybrid! They’re moving
towards the edge of the stage! Hybrid trying to break free, but to no avail! MUSE! MUSE! MUSE WITH THE WARRIOR’S DEATH
OFF THE STAGE, CRASHING INTO EQUIPMENT BELOW! MY GOD!
King: What has transpired here…Muse and Hybrid are down, Devin is nowhere to be seen…wait! Muse! Muse is up!
He’s…he’s climbing back onto the stage! There’s no one else here! LOOK! He’s holding up a key,
the REAL key! He’s moving towards the safe…
J.R.: Look there, King! Up in the sky!
King: It’s a bird?
J.R.: No, it’s Devin! Devin high above the stage, on the rafters! HE’S GOING FOR IT ALL! DEVIN! DEVIN WITH
THE…THE STARCROSSED! DEVIN SOARING THROUGH THE AIR…ONE ROTATION, TWO ROTATION! HE LANDS AN ARM AROUND MUSE AND
DDT! DDT INTO THE WOODEN STAGE!
King: And the stage gives way! Devin driving Muse and himself through the stage! MY GOD!
J.R.: That’s MY line!
King: Hybrid is out…Muse is out…and Devin has just sacrificed himself…all men are down and out…LOOK!
TO THE FRONT!
J.R.: It’s…it’s JOHNNY PERFECT! He’s making his way down the aisle! Up onto the stage and…AND
HE’S PULLED INTO THE HOLE! NO!
King: Hybrid is up! He pulls himself back together and climbs back onto the stage…he looks around but no one is home…
J.R.: AND HE DIVES HEAD-FIRST INTO THE HOLE! HYBRID TAKING OUT ALL THREE MEN…POSSIBLY!
King: All four men are below stage…we…we don’t know what’s happening…
J.R.: Look! LOOK THERE! A HAND! IT HAS THE KEY!
King: It’s inserted into the safe…which is just inches away from the hole…and…and it’s open…!
THE SAFE IS OPEN!
J.R.: Muse! MUSE! MUSE IS UP! Muse is up, but…BUT HE’S DOWN! DEVIN FROM BEHIND, SMASHING MUSE’S FACE
INTO THE SAFE!
King: And…he’s got it! HE’S GOT IT! HE’S GOT IT! DEVIN WITH THE BRIEFCASE!
Devin: I’ve got it!
Mario: Hee-hee, he’s got it!
J.R.: DEVIN! DEVIN! DEVIN! FOR THE SECOND TIME EVER, DEVIN IS NOW “MR. MONEY IN THE BANK!”
Lillian Garcia: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, AND NOW “MISTER MONEY IN THE BANK…DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN
