EDGE: Masked Warrior 2 (NFL)
Rich Reilly of New Jersey; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

The members of EDGE have gathered in NYC during the last few days. Paparazzi have spotted them living it up at various hot spots, enjoying VIP bottle service while celebrating. Tonight they are spotted entering Peter Luger's in Brooklyn. As they make their way in, they are seated at a large table. Rich Reilly takes his place at the head of the table and immediately asks the waiter for something. Minutes later, glasses are filled and he calls for a toast.

"Before we get started, there's something I need to reveal... Come on out here, big guy."

IWA World Champion Masked Warrior 2 walks in, looking larger than when he last competed, and goes to unmask himself.

"Let me introduce the man behind the mask... Big... Ha ha, I'm just kidding. Had you guys going there, didn't I? But seriously, join us, bro."

The man removes the mask, revealing himself to be Rob Reilly, clearly laughing it up. He goes over to his brother, and they embrace. He sits down at the table with the rest of EDGE as Rich continues.

"Seventeen down and one to go. History has been made once again, and as I stand at the precipice of greatness, let us go out with style. They didn't think we had what it took to step up to the plate. Despite all our losses, we stand at the top of the mountain, taking our place in history. So, gentlemen, let us raise our glasses to 2016 and to each other. Cheers!"
