Segment 2: Empire PromoEdit
- Barnes and crew make their way out to the Empire Theme Song*
Barnes: "It feels good to be King. *Boos* Oh, stop, you guys really still mad about my remarks on HeatWave? You guys need to let go of your grudge, that's not cool. I just want to say, giving a nod to Lorna here, Mikey is now apart of The Empire, he is still there as will I for you.
Now, Coren. Oh, where is he? Is he hurt? *Barnes gives a shocked face, like he doesn't know.* Wait, I got it, he's in a hospital in back in whatever hole he's crawled back into. *We Want Coren Chants* You won't be seeing him again so don't worry about that. Dumbfucks.
Here comes a REAL champion, The Empire's champion, Goatface Bryan!"“Headstrong to take on anyone…” *Never before was this statement truer as Goatface Bryan walks down the ramp with the APW World Title wrapped around his waist. The crowd boos him as Barnes yells "Shut up!" and gives him the microphone and begins to talk.*
Bryan: "THE APW title….is finally with someone worth its bling. Antonio Castanogli? Coren? They don’t deserve it and it’s evident now cause I AM the champion while they lie on their asses waiting to be put out of their misery after the ass whooping they received last week at Backlash. Now, you might wonder why I did what did last week. You want to know why? It’s because of this…. (Taps the title)
Since day one I had my eyes on this title and I was guaranteed this title during my contract signing. This was all an elaborate plan and you sheep believed it with your eyes closed. Don’t you think it was convenient enough for me to be added into that match? (Boo)
So to tell you freaks the truth about my actions, you’re seeing it in front of you. I am your champion whether you like it or not. And now to talk about Mark Barnes… THE BOSS… The reason why you all are watching legends like me in front of you. Consider yourself lucky…
Calling me a sellout won’t change the facts. I’m down in the history books and I’m going to stay there forever because I’m, not losing this title and The Empire? We together will rule this ring and all of you puppets will watch it all happen before you. You are witnessing the new era and this era will end only when we end it. And guess what, that’s never going to happen. So anyone backstage who wants to challenge my decisions are welcomed here but beware… The Empire will strike you down. I’ll strike you down and as the champion, I am unstoppable. Accept this fate quicker will be better for you because I am a mainstay.”
I haven’t turned my back on you, You all have… I AM YOUR CHAMPION! YOU DON’T BOO ME! FUCK YOU ALL”
(drops the mic)
- Barnes picks up the microphone* "This man is the best pound for pound wrestler in the whole Fucking WORLD! You will respect him, because he is your World Champion and he will stay Champion for as long as He wants, so all you dumb, simple, sheep will RESPECT YOUR CHAMPION!" *They leave together to boos and more We Want Coren chants*
Match 2- Antonio Castanogli vs Tom Carter W/ Mikey SaloneEdit
- Castanogli makes his way out to a gigantic amount of cheers but something seems different with the Sport, he walks down with uncertainty and looks so different without the APW World Championship around his waist, he looks like a shell of his former self*
Antonio: "I've been very quiet over the past 2 weeks since Backlash, just the way it ended and how everything went down. Coren, you're a hell of a competitor, you gave me the fight of my life and I'll respect you for the rest of my life. Coren, you talk a big game, but you back it up every time you're out there and I hope we can get in the ring again.
Onto Goatface, you call these people sheep? These people are the lifeline of APW, not that power hungry Barnes. These people are what keep me ALIVE dammit! Goatface, I hope you enjoy your time with that belt because it's mine soon e-"
- Tom Carter makes his way out with Mikey Salone*
Mikey: "Oh Antonio, just shut the fuck up. No one cares about you anymore, All these people care about is The Empire. *Boos* You guys know you do. I'm here to intrduce the Enforcer of The Empire, TOM CARTER! *Tom just looks smug and angry as he walks his way to the ring.*
The two men start by brawling each other back and forth until Antonio is able to catch one of Carter's punches and turns his around into a German as Carter goes flying backwards and lands hard on his back. He heads out of the ring to get a breather as Mikey comes over and gives Carter some advice. He slowly walks up the steps telling the ref to hold Antonio back.

Hal: "Tonight, I go back to my drug so to say, I go in that ring, in front of all these diehard fans in Kansas City and I get my revenge. Goatface, you betrayed me, you betrayed everyone when you went with Barnes. Don't you understand it's all about him? Everything, you're just a piece in his Empire bullshit.
