#1 Contender Match for Supercard 81

With Supercard 81: Royal Roulette just two days away - The Great Genku had his Undisputed Championship match ripped out from under him by a Friday challenge from VenoMark!

The match cost Genku the title shot he'd earned at Pre-Show 81, but not all hope is lost! Genku will now receive a second chance when he faces The_Purple_Bunny in a new #1 Contenders rematch tomorrow - in the undercard of Royal Roulette!

It's another exciting match on a stacked card, which will include an Undisputed Championship main event between old rivals VenoMark and reigning champ "The Hitman" DECEPTION!

Also complicating the mix will be the winner of the annual 30-fighter Royal Roulette Match, which will grant one ultimate survivor the right to challenge for any title of their choosing at any time of their choosing! A wildcard element as we count down to the 2016 Summer Olympic Games and the annual spectacular of All-Star Summer Showdown!

Be here for all the action from Royal Roulette as the Summer Season takes hold! Must-see!

- VenoMark versus "The Hitman" DECEPTION (c) [Undisputed Championship]

Friday Night Fights (July 22, 2016)

With Supercard 81: Royal Roulette mere days away, not everyone was prepared to test their luck at the annual event! Friday Night Fights played host to a shocking challenge as VenoMark questioned the legitimacy of The Great Genku's right to be #1 contender!

VenoMark rejected Genku's win at Pre-Show 81, pointing back to the June 17th edition of FNF when he defeated The_Purple_Bunny and was considered #1 contender! He noted only eventual Mid-Year Grand Slam winner Ratt was able to beat him. He also cited last week's win against Damo as further proof he's bested all contenders! This led to an inevitable one-on-one showdown, where VenoMark completely took Genku by surprise! Lucky +13p scored VenoMark a stinging victory and the right to challenge for the Undisputed Championship! That means in two days it will be VenoMark who takes on "The Hitman" DECEPTION in the main event - Sunday, July 24th!

Further discontent was on show as ElJobber was booked to face "The Guardian" CaTigeReptile in a rematch of their Pre-Show 81 Royal Roulette qualifier! The 2-time Battle Royale winner and former Undisputed Champion was upset to have missed guaranteed entry into the title opportunity. He channeled his disappointment into a high calibre performance, reversing the Pre-Show upset to earn a convincing win. It was enough to impress officials into granting ElJobber guaranteed entry alongside confirmed qualifiers: CaTigeReptile, TonyTheTiger and Loopster!

July 22nd also saw the return of The British Invasion to Friday Nights! ShawnMichaels was aggressively rejected from this week's Monday Night Invasion - exiled by DaemonX for his failure to meet an ultimatum of victory at Pre-Show 81! The British Exit started with promising wins for duos Liam & nif and Ironize & AcidicWonder, but things fell apart as Politics fought hard to beat the former leader of The Invasion! It's all part of Politics' effort to fight on for his fallen comrade Menas, but that won't come as any comfort to ShawnMichaels!

This weekend, the beleaguered Briton takes on The Invasion fighter who went European at Pre-Show 81, and cost The British Invasion their Survival Sequence match: "Italian Cyclone" Shen_DuHBK! All this, plus CCShadow & Scott-Howell taking on the history making Duo Division Champions, the annual thirty-fighter Royal Roulette match, and so much more! Don't you dare miss it!

Friday Night Fights (July 22, 2016):
10. VenoMark d. The Great Genku [+13] [#1 Contender]

Royal Roulette Card Announcement

2016 in The Great Arena just keeps getting better - and Supercard 81: Royal Roulette is fixing to raise the bar to another level! Today - the official announcement of the Royal Roulette card promises a compelling undercard full of bad blood, grudges, and hardcore competition!

Pre-Show 81: The British Exit set the table for an exciting Supercard event, delivering three well earned title contenders: The Great Genku will rise back to the Undisputed Championship when he faces DECEPTION; time tested tandem CCShadow & Scott-Howell will attempt to end the record breaking run of "Team Xtreme" Marz & Violent`J; and "The Fallen" LordSkarlet will cash in his American Dream to take on Aussie KFL Champion: StatixTournament tested Division 2 Champion avenger45 will have to wait and see who he'll face in his first defense of his new gold!

Pre-Show 81 was also where ShawnMichaels suffered one defeat too many, leaving him in exile from The Invasion he helped to begin! It was his own people who turned against him, and at Supercard 81 he'll target the one he blames the most: "Italian Cyclone" Shen_DuHBK!

Coup leaders DaemonX & Banging will represent the new era for The Invasion when they take on the duo who invaded the invasion: "The New Generation" Baraka_MK & Onryo! It's a match between two of the brightest stars in the 2016 Duo Division and could have major title implications! There will also be championship level scrutiny when "The Secret Weapon" SubScorpTile takes on arch-rival Benjamin in a Division 2 grudge match!

PLUS: While LordSkarlet tries to win gold from Statix, his "Fallen" will defend themselves from the attack of the KFL Champion's Alliance comrades: AlbertBeefcake & The_Hurricane!

It all goes down this weekend - Sunday, July 24th! Stay tuned for full results and any last minute developments as we count down to the final Supercard before the 2016 Summer Olympic Games!

Supercard 81: Royal Roulette (July 24th, 2016):

United & Krew Play Royal Roulette

At Pre-Show 81, The United became a trio once again - replacing injured Shoe with surprise Hall of Fame recruit: Mimik! The addition couldn't get them retribution in their grudge match with "The Service Krew" Damo, DeathScepter & __-Standards-__ -- but timing may still be on their side!

With the annual Royal Roulette match just one week away - officials have announced that all six members of The United and The Service Krew will be entered into the thirty-fighter random draw! They join Pre-Show 81 qualification match winners: "The Predator" TonyTheTiger, "The Guardian" CaTigeReptile and boastful Invasion fighter: Loopster!

Mimik's Hall of Fame reputation was built on a legendary run of Battle Royal match victories, including the 2012 Battle Royale! Random entry will have a major influence on the success of both teams, but if The United can convene during the multi-man scramble they'll pose a major threat!

The winner of Royal Roulette gains an opportunity to challenge for a championship of their choice at a time of their choice. In the past it's enabled Ratt to conquer the Duo Division Championship, and delivered The Great Genku, VenoMark and ElJobber to Undisputed Championship opportunities!

An announcement concerning the rest of the Supercard 81: Royal Roulette card is expected in the coming days. It all goes down this coming Sunday - July 24th! Stay tuned for updates!

Supercard 81: Royal Roulette (July 24th, 2016):
- 30-fighter Royal Roulette Match
- The Great Genku versus "The Hitman" DECEPTION (c) [Undisputed Championship]
- CCShadow & Scott-Howell versus "Team Xtreme" Marz & Violent`J (c) [Duo Division Championship]
- "The Fallen" LordSkarlet versus Statix (c) [KFL Championship]

Monday Night Invasion (July 18, 2016)

A tense stand-off opened Monday Night Invasion as the consequences of the bombshell conclusion to Pre-Show 81: The British Exit came to pass! DaemonX had warned The British Invasion last week that if they failed to deal with their European Union counterparts - they would no longer be welcome on Monday Nights!

Apparently Invasion leader ShawnMichaels didn't believe the threatened coup, confronted by Banging as he attempted to enter the arena. ShawnMichaels was able to fend off Banging alone, but when he was joined by new Invasion figurehead DaemonX, it was a 2-on-1 beat down that sent a clear message: Britain has officially exited Monday Nights! DaemonX declared the beginning of a new era for The Invasion, and invited the fighters of Europe to remain - but warned that it would be at their own peril. Next week: The Invasion will unveil their long rumored secret weapon!

The European Union's surprise victory in a 5-on-5 Survival Sequence came courtesy of surprise new recruit Shen_DuHBK! Strangely, the "Italian Cyclone" was nowhere to be seen on Monday night, leaving the likes of Nephrite, Sgtf and The Greek Crisis to carry on hostilities with The Invasion.

The Fallen were having the inverse luck of Europe as they limped out of a failed Duo Division #1 Contender challenge at Pre-Show 81, into another match orchestrated by LordSkarlet -- a grudge bout against false KFL contender: Loopster! Just like last week, Loopster recruited an impromptu partner to deal with the consequences of his recent big noting, this time finding an ally in Jericho! The choice seemed to be a good one, too, as the pairing fought off the advances of the would-be title contenders, UlcaTron & Corrupt hydraslash! Will it be a bad omen for LordSkarlet as he rides his American Dream Battle Royal victory to a KFL Championship match? We'll find out this weekend when Statix defends the title at Supercard 81: Royal Roulette - Sunday, July 24th!

Last week it was "The New Generation" Baraka_MK & Onryo who came to Monday Night Invasion to shut Loopster's big mouth. This time, they were on the receiving end of a challenge from Jason_Voorhees & edge! The Invasion duo attempted to even the books in favour of the team, but found themselves outclassed by a superior Duo! It was a similar story for Rhyno & TripleH, who individually attempted to take out "The Alliance" AlbertBeefcake & The_Hurricane, only to be embarrassed in the process!

Friday Night Fights (Jul 18, 2016):
8. Loopster & Jericho d. "The Fallen" UlcaTron & Corrupt hydraslash [+1]
7. "The New Generation" Baraka_MK & Onryo d. Jason_Voorhees & edge [+2]
6. AlbertBeefcake d. Rhyno [+3]
5. "The European Crisis" maxilos & proXade d. The_Rock & KurtAngle [+1]
4. The_Hurricane d. TripleH [+2]
3. "The European Union" Nephrite & Sgtf d. MattHardy & Ghrimm [+2]
2. DaemonX & Banging d. ShawnMichaels [+5]

Weekly Rankings Recap - 7/17/2016

Pre-Show 81: The British Exit went off with a bang, creating a seismic shift in the very make-up of The Great Arena! Living up to the event's name: ShawnMichaels and The British Invasion were defeated in a 5-on-5 Survival Sequence that may have exiled them from the Monday Night Invasion they were instrumental in starting! DaemonX issued the ultimatum this week, declaring they would be "unwelcome" if they failed to defeat The European Union! We'll have to wait until the next Monday Night Invasion to see exactly how it plays out, but the original Invasion leader may be out!

The result was underscored in this week's rankings with DaemonX & Banging continuing their slow, steady climb through the Duo Division ranks. At third, they're becoming serious contenders for the unshaken Duo titles. CCShadow & Scott-Howell remain firm top and will challenge Marz & Violent`J this coming weekend at Supercard 81: Royal Roulette!

Instrumental in defeating the Britons was Shen_DuHBK! The Invasion fighter known as "The Italian Cyclone" was a surprise addition to Europe's 5-fighter line-up, giving them the edge from the get go! He helped push ShawnMichaels out of The Invasion Top 10, to be replaced by Shen's contemporary and the fighter who eliminated Michaels from the American Dream Battle Royal - Jason_Voorhees!
