Cameras pan to the ring at the legendary IWA Coliseum in Willowick, Ohio. The Basket Case Sid Skyscraper, IWA World Champion, and Jigsaw, IWA Elite Champion, both stand victorious in the ring.

Jimbo Hoss: "Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here with the new IWA World Champion, The Basket Case Sid Skyscraper, and IWA Elite Champion Jigsaw! Snake-Man, this is your fourth World Champion and first Elite Champion here in the IWA. What is next--"

The Snake-Man (cutting Jimbo off): "The Misfits have once again made history! World Championship? Check! Elite Championship? Check! We have, to my left, the IWA World Champion, and to my right, the IWA Elite Champion! (Sid and Jigsaw stand stoically in the ring with their respective titles around their waists.) This is the first time one man has led two of his superstars in ONE NIGHT to these prestigious titles!"

Hoss: "Indeed. What a huge accomplishment, one that many thought not possible until TONIGHT!"

Snake-Man: "Jimbo, history is written by the winners, and it will continue to be written by the Island of Misfit Toys!!!"

Hoss: "What a night for The Island, who have not only retained the IWA World Championship, but also taken the IWA Elite Championship!"

"Symphony of Destruction" by Megadeth kicks up over the P.A. system, and both champions go to opposite turnbuckles and raise their prestigious belts defiantly into the air as the cameras fade out.
