PLAY BY PLAY
HPW and HXS TV set the scene!
Whose hungry? The stars of Hyrule Pro-Wrestling sure are! Hungry for competition, and hungry for something more! The Clash of Fates has already shaped much of HyruleMania 3, and with Arrow Club holding most of the gold, they’ve all got targets on their backs! One big target is on young Torbevito’s back as he’s still Death Mountain Champion. Tali isn’t allowed to challenge him again, but a legal loophole allows Aveil of the Desert Flowers to throw her proverbial hat into the ring! But she, Onox, Ghirahim (yes, even Ghirahim) and the Dark Horses, Ralph, Odolwa and Byrne, must all fight to qualify!
The next biggest target is the HPW Trios Championships! The Swamp Boss, Bad Croc Scaly, and the Young Ducks, Mack & Rick Quackson, crossed off the Desert Flowers, but the Dames of the Dunes are a different story. Tali swaps with Aveil so that she, Riju & Buliara are now part of a massive Trios match! They are joined by The Dark Forces and the UnderWorld Order, two factions that previously held these titles, as well as former champions, Groose & Tingle. Of course, this is a Trios match, so Groose & Tingle do need a partner. Did they find someone to join them in this golden opportunity? Or will they be replaced by a team that’s chomping at the bit?
But first! As an appetizer for their showdown at HyruleMania, we see the HPW Triforce Champion, Kage, take on the Hyrule Warriors winner, Igos du Ikana, in a tag team match! 2v2 is rare, but Kage really only has one ally available to him in Wizzro, so 2v2 it will be. Who will taste sweet victory on the way to the Celebration of Greatness? HPW Fyter Feast on Trilby Plain starts now!
Kage & Wizzro VS Igos du Ikana & Captain Keeta!
The Hero’s Shadow had one of the most brutal matches perhaps anywhere against Link not even a month ago, but he doesn’t care. Will the HPW Triforce Champion stay strong just a month out from HyruleMania? Or will he already #FallToRuin here at Fyter Feast?
The teams sort out, and fans fire up as Kage and Igos both start for their teams, giving us all an appetizer of their title match. Kage and Igos circle, approach, feel things out, and then Igos knees Kage low! Kage sputters and stumbles to the ropes, his ribs still hurting from the Blood Match. Igos and Keeta laugh at Kage’s pain, and Igos mockingly asks Kage what’s wrong. Kage snarls and glares at Igos, but he is clutching his ribs. Igos waits on Kage and Kage approaches. They tie up, go around the ring, and Kage gets a headlock. Kage grinds the hold, but then Igos throws a body shot! Kage’s bad ribs get him again!
Igos slips out of the headlock, CLUBS Kage on the back, then wraps on a rear bearhug! Kage endures as Igos squeezes the bad ribs! Fans rally, Kage pries at the hold, but Igos RAMS Kage into the Ikana corner. Igos RAMS his shoulder in again and again, and then digs his shoulder in. The referee counts, Keeta tags in, and Igos brings Kage out of the corner for a BACK SUPLEX NECKBREAKER! Keeta covers, TWO!! That was a close one and even Kage knows it! Was taking this match too much too soon? Keeta stomps Kage to the ropes. Keeta stands Kage up and pushes him against the ropes. The ref counts and Keeta lets off at 4 with a hard body shot!

Keeta reaches out for Igos, but Kage slips away and scrambles to his corner.
Fans rally up as Kage sits up, but Wizzro tags in. Kage grimaces but he slides out of the ring. Kage growls in frustration but Wizzro assures him that he’s got this. Wizzro taunts Keeta and fans rally up. Keeta looks to Igos and shrugs. Keeta and Wizzro approach, tie up, and Keeta’s height advantage makes it easy for him to push Wizzro to ropes! The ref counts, but Wizzro steps through the ropes to get on the apron. The ref reprimands as Wizzro holds onto Keeta’s arms. Wizzro says, “Okay, hold on.” And then he HOTSHOTS Keeta!

Igos digs his boots in, the ref counts, and Igos lets off at 4 to tag Keeta. Keeta stomps Wizzro, digs his boots in, then lets off at 4. Keeta drags Wizzro up, CLUBS him on the back, then clamps on a headlock, grinds the hold, but Wizzro throws body shots. Wizzro powers out but Keeta grabs onto his hood! Keeta uses that to reel Wizzro back in! Keeta hits a headlock takeover but Wizzro keeps his shoulders up. Keeta blocks Wizzro’s headscissor attempt, and he throws down palm strikes. Wizzro grabs at Keeta’s face, but being a skeleton, Keeta has no hair or ears to pull at. So Wizzro uses a forearm to push Keeta into the headscissors!
Keeta kips free, Wizzro reverses the roles and hits a headlock takeover! Keeta headscissors back and Wizzro can’t get free as Keeta holds on tight. Wizzro kicks and hops around, and pops free, and he jumps on Keeta to get a headlock! Fans cheer the technical exchange but Igos coaches Keeta to get up.

Wait, what’s that on the tron?
“FACE YOUR FOE” plays on the titantron, and it’s rather glitchy… And there’s even glitchy audio saying those three words. Then it’s practically shouting, “Face your foe! Face your foe! FACE! YOUR! FOE!!” The image goes away, the lights all go out, and then the lights come back up as if nothing happened. But what does it all mean?

Sahasrahla says that Groose and Tingle tagging at the same time voids the tag, the Gibdos are both still legal! UWOG DECKS DFG! UWOG drags DFG up and puts him in the uWo corner and tags ReDead.
The uWo stomp away on DFG, Sahasrahla counts and ReDead lets off. ReDead taunts the rest of the Dark Forces, and Sahasrahla has to keep Volga from jumping. But this allows Skull Kid to CHOKE DFG! Groose protests, Sahasrahla heads back over to reprimand Skull Kid, and Skull Kid tells Groose to mind his own business! ReDead drags DFG up and ROCKS him with a right. DFG staggers and ReDead stalks him to ropes. ReDead CHOKES DFG and shouts at him, “You should’ve joined when you had the chance!” Sahasrahla counts, ReDead lets off at 4, and ReDead runs side to side. Cia sneaks a tag in before ReDead clotheslines DFG up and out!
Cia slips in behind ReDead for a BACKSTABBER! She manages to get ReDead up and over into BLACK MAGIC! ReDead flails and reaches out while Cia pulls back on the hold! UWOG runs in but Volga springboards to FLYING KNEE him down! Volga DECKS Skull Kid for good measure, but Tingle runs in to kick at Cia! Cia lets ReDead go to grab Tingle’s leg!

DFG gets back in the ring but Tali is there and she SPEARS him down! ReDead is back up and he BOOTS Tali! But Tali rebounds and RAMS ReDead! ReDead staggers and Buliara holds the ropes down! ReDead teeters but he doesn’t really fall out. Tali runs over to clothesline ReDead up and out! ReDead staggers up to his feet and Beedle rushes over to check on him. Buliara CROSSBODIES ReDead and Beedle down!
Fans are thunderous while Sahasrahla is panicked! Buliara drags ReDead up and puts him in, then tags in off him. Buliara storms over to DFG and drags him up to a fireman’s carry. DFG fights free and HEADBUTTS Buliara. DFG reels Buliara in for a SPINEBUSTER! DFG drags Buliara into a drop zone, and he goes up the corner?! But then Skull Kid trips him up! Fans boo but this is the Studly corner, though, Skull Kid can’t tag in. Skull Kid still goes up top, and he ROCKS DFG into a Tree of Woe! DFG tries to sit up, but Skull Kid gives him WOE STOMPS! Skull Kid then drags Buliara up, but Buliara gives him a POP-UP GORON DROP! Cover, TWO!
Fans fire up while Buliara drags Skull Kid back up. Buliara heads for the Dames’ corner but Skull Kid slips free and CHOP BLOCKS a leg! Buliara drops to a knee, Skull Kid hits a BASEMENT DDT! Cover, Riju stomps it apart. Riju brings Skull Kid up but Skull Kid HEADBUTTS her back! Buliara pops Skull Kid right up to an Electric Chair! Riju goes up top, fans are thunderous as they hit a DOOMSDAY DEVICE!! Or maybe, DUNES Day! Buliara covers, but ReDead SPINEBUSTERS Riju onto the pin! Fans boo as ReDead saves Skull Kid and drags him away! ReDead tags in, then he storms over to drag Buliara up.
ReDead scoops Buliara, SLAMS her, then roars before he runs the ropes! But DFG POUNCES him off course! DFG roars at UWOG and dares him to get back in! UWOG stares DFG down, and he tags in off ReDead! The Gibdos fire off haymakers, but Sahasrahla reprimands DFG for being in illegally! DFG knees low, BOOTS UWOG, but UWOG rebounds to BOOT back! DFG rebounds, but UWOG avoids the boot to run and BODY CHECK DFG! UWOG storms over to Buliara but Buliara hits a JAWBREAKER! UWOG wobbles, Buliara DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous again while both wrestlers are down!
“THIS IS AWESOME!” as UWOG and Buliara both crawl. UWOG ends up in the Studly corner and Ladrona tags in! She hurries and anchors Buliara’s foot! Ladrona drags Buliara away, but Buliara rolls and kicks at her. Ladrona holds on tight, and she gives the leg a DDT! Then she wraps the leg up for a HEEL HOOK! Buliara endures and fans rally!

Riju leaps off Buliara to CROSSBODY Groose! But Groose rolls through! Groose stares Tali down as they each hold the other’s teammate up!
But Skull Kid runs in to TORPEDO MAJORA Groose down!! Skull Kid drags Groose out of the ring, and Tali looks to Buliara. They both shrug, and then Tali tosses Ladrona to Buliara for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Ladrona sits up in a daze, Buliara drags her back up and picks her up. Tali runs in and they SANDWICH Ladrona! Tali then gut wrenches Ladrona and Buliara helps out, DOUBLE PILEDRIVER!!! Tali covers, the Dames win!!
Winners: The Dames of the Dunes, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contenders to the HPW Trios Championships)
The Gerudo Alliance has succeeded! But this is only the start of their redemption! Aveil is going after Torbevito in the Ladder Match, and now Tali, Riju & Buliara are going after- OH! Speaking of going after, Groose and Skull Kid are still brawling outside! Groose clotheslines Skull Kid over the barriers! The rest of the uWo hurries over but the Dark Forces go after them! Groose chases after Skull Kid among the crowd! The Gibdos also brawl, and ReDead going after Volga. Cia chases Beedle off! What will it take to settle things between all these grudges?
WAIT! Arrow Club makes their way on stage! Bad Croc Scaly & The Young Ducks raise their trios titles, and Shabonne is already saying The Dames are getting that gold! Will redemption be completed at the Celebration of Greatness?
This was a fun card to put together. Now, granted, I put a lot more into that huge Trios main event, but there’s a lot going on with all those characters there, obviously. There are definitely grudge matches cooking for the Gibdos, as well as Groose and Skull Kid. And while it might seem a bit much, but the Gerudo Alliance is all getting in on the rematches. The Ladder Match is going to be wild with Ghirahim also getting another shot at Midna. In the field of Ghirahim, Midna (true form), Torbevito, Aveil and Odolwa, Odolwa is the biggest but he’s not a hoss, so this is going to be a fast paced, physical ladder match. The Trios Championships could also be a toss up, but it’s also tricky since we just saw the Gerudo Alliance lose to Arrow Club at Clash of Fates.

Cia VS Harlequin!
Speaking of The Dark Forces, the Dark Sorceress now steps up to represent. But will she beat the literal Bokoblin clown to then face her teammate? Or will this Face of Evil be laughing all the way to the bank?
Harlequin is already laughing at the bell. He and Cia circle, feel things out, but Harlequin’s laughter is annoying Cia. Cia kicks low, CLUBS Harlequin on the back, then clamps on a headlock. Harlequin powers out, then dodges Cia to run and run her over on the return. Harlequin laughs some more, but Cia gets up to kick him again.

HPW hears from The UnderWorld Order!
Hollywood ReDead, Gomess, Death Sword and Ted Beedle Ossi defeat another group of Stalfos Bokoblins, aka Stalkoblins. Well, ReDead, Gomess and Death Sword do, Beedle was cowering behind a shield. The group continues moving through the dark maze that is the Thyphlo ruins, but then they stop. They look around, and Gomess asks, “Have we been going around in circles?” ReDead says, “I don’t know! The torches are all the same, I can’t tell if we’ve seen these before or if they’re new!” Death Sword shouts, “Then how the [censored] are we supposed to find where they put Āléx?!” The three start arguing, but Beedle speaks up.
Beedle looks past them and points to a glowing in the distance. “Could that be it?” The others look over, and there’s an eerie green-blue light. ReDead asks, “Is that blue fire?” Gomess says, “It’s more like green fire.” Death Sword says, “I dunno, it’s a bit of both. Y’know, like teal or aquamarine.” The others ask, “What?” Death Sword is a bit embarrassed but ReDead has them all move on towards the light. As they approach, they notice the light moving. It goes up gently, stays put for a second, then comes back down gently, and repeat. Beedle asks, “Is it… breathing?” The uWo gets closer, and they see the light is coming from an orb.
And that orb is attached to a chain that forms a necklace, around someone, or something, very, very big. Gomess whispers, “Is that Hinox?” Death Sword whispers, “The hell is he doing here?” ReDead whispers, “And what is with the glowing ball around his neck?” Beedle whispers, “It has to be something important, obviously! Let’s take it!” The four creep closer, and they each look to each other. They all expect someone else to grab the glowing ball, and this turns into a whispered argument. Eventually, Death Sword is volunteered as the tallest of them. Death Sword reaches out, but then Hinox’s one big eye opens up!
“So they were right!” Hinox says as he sits up. “You guys did decide to walk in here to get Alex back!” Beedle corrects Hinox, it’s “Āléx.” “That’s what I said. Alex.” “No, you keep saying it Al, Lex. It’s Ay, Lex.” Hinox and Beedle go back and forth with “Alex” and “Āléx,” and ReDead tells them to stop! ReDead asks about the glowing ball, and Hinox says, “Oh, this is the key to getting Alex back.” Beedle says, “Āléx, and I was right! We gotta get the ball!” The uWo, except for Beedle, jump on Hinox! They CLUB away on Hinox, but Hinox explodes out! Hinox ROCKS ReDead with a right, pushes Gomess away, then BOOTS Death Sword!
Gomess comes back, throws hands, but Hinox HEADBUTTS Gomess! Death Sword swings on Hinox but Hinox blocks Death Sword’s punch, to then HEADBUTT Death Sword! But ReDead grabs at the ball! ReDead pulls on the chain and it starts to choke Hinox! Hinox shouts for ReDead to stop, but ReDead keeps pulling! Hinox grabs at the chain, unlocks it, and ReDead staggers away as he has the whole thing! The uWo regroup and Hinox grumbles. “Fine, you can have it. The center of the ruins is just over that way. There’ll be a special platform for you to put the ball in, and that’ll raise a special platform, and, well, you’ll see.”
The uWo head off, find the space Hinox described, and see a square pedestal with the same teal light glowing from it. There’s an indentation, the ball is placed in it, and both square and ball go from teal to orange light. And up from the ground just ahead rises a conical shaped structure! Glowing in a similar orange light is the eye-shaped symbol of the Sheikah. “Of course it’s the Sheikah,” ReDead grumbles. “Whatever. Āléx must be inside there.” ReDead leads the way and they all walk inside, only a platform glowing blue. The platform lowers, revealing itself to be an elevator. The uWo enters inside a large underground space that feels both futuristic, yet ancient.
The space is lit by glowing blue pyramids atop sculpted stone. There are also blue runes running along the walls, with water shimmering as it reflects that light. But what the uWo focuses on is the sarcophagus from HyruleMania! They all rush forward, knowing Āléx is inside! Beedle knocks on the sarcophagus, asking if Āléx is okay in there. No answer. Gomess and Death Sword try prying it open but it is sealed shut. Then the group notices the runes on the sarcophagus.
ReDead asks, “What language is this? Wingdings?” Beedle says it’s just Sheikah. Beedle gets out his Sheikah Slate to translate. ReDead rolls his eyes and says, “Oh of course. Create a special alphabet, then sell a device that can translate it. Scam artists.” Beedle tells him to shut up and listen. “If the… U… W… O… Wait, us? If the uWo is… reading this… We’ve got two words for ya, dot dot dot. Oh wait a minute!” ReDead is pissed at the “smug” Sheikah for trolling them, and he starts beating on the sarcophagus! The others tell him to stop, that’s not helping things! ReDead says, “Whatever! Let’s just get this outta here and figure it out later.”
They haul the sarcophagus back to the elevator, it goes up, but things get really crowded once they return to the surface. With a lot of arguing, cursing, and Beedle shouting, “PIVOT! PIVOT!” the uWo figures out how to get the sarcophagus out of the cone and they hurry to retrace their steps. But then more Stalkoblins show up! Or perhaps, the ones they beat up earlier are back on their boney feet? Either way, the uWo does their best to run past them to avoid fighting again. But there are so many, they end up making some really sharp turns, lose control, and lose hold of the sarcophagus! IT ENDS UP HITTING A TORCH AND CATCHING ON FIRE!!
“AAAAALEEEX~!” they all shout! “NOOO~!” The sarcophagus is burning, but then BLAM!! Alex busts out of it!! But he’s on fire, too!! Alex shakes free of the burning rags, and the flames cast his silhouette. Alex looks at the uWo (and into the camera) with piercing teal eyes. What has been reborn from the ashes that was Alex the Gibdo? And with the HPW Trios Championship #1 Contenders Gauntlet on the horizon, will this be the second life of the UnderWorld Order?
Fin Balure VS Garo Master!
The Zora Rock ‘n’ Rolla lost the Termina Championship at HyruleMania, but he looks to redeem himself by aiming for a bigger prize! Will the leader of Arrow Club hit the mark? Or will he lose to one of the Three Great Masters?

His first match back is his first win back! Former champion as he may be, will Link return to his former glory?
Getting this one done just in time, but it was a lot of fun. I feel bad for Ralph, but Kevin couldn’t lose after that big win over Alex at HyruleMania. And of course Harlequin was going to win his first match after the Faces of Evil made their debut, so now each bracket has one FOE in through to the second round. I really like where the uWo is heading with this new form of Alex. He’s no longer a Gibdo because his bandages are gone, I can’t wait for the reveal in that Trios gauntlet. And Fin and Link both winning, we’re going to get a great showdown from them. Link is definitely going to have the crisis of confidence trope underlying his matches as the difficulty level goes up every round.

Lupay’s entrance has a lot of dubstep and lasers. The eye-like gem on his forehead even flashes to the beat. The bell rings and fans rally for “Master Kohga!” Clap clap, clap-clap-clap. Lupay bares his fangs and flexes his arms in an attempt to intimidate, but Kohga sucks in his gut to make it look like he has a good physique.

King Nicolas Foolyere speaks.
“Hello, ladies and gentlemen here in Eldin Canyon!” Pause for the cheap pop. “Now, I’m sure you all saw Arrow Club claiming they’ll easily be the #1 contenders to the HPW Trios Championships once again. Well, that doesn’t seem fair to all the other trios in HPW to just assume you can defeat them and move on. Shortly after Arrow Club shot off their mouths, I discussed things with upper management, and the answer was actually rather obvious: A GAUNTLET MATCH!” Fans love the sound of that!
Foolyere continues, “If Arrow Club thinks they can defeat the Ikana Royal Family, and the Doombringers, and the Three Masters, and the UnderWorld Order and the Poe Sisters, then that’s what they have to do! Whichever team makes it to the end of that gauntlet will face the HPW Trios Champions at the Triforce Anniversary event, but Scaly, Ducks, I’m telling you right now, you’re STARTING that match! This match will happen on March 17th, Mount Dunsel in Faron! Best of luck to every trio in that match, even Arrow Club.” Fans are going wild after that huge announcement! Will the Arrow Club stand a chance at hitting their targets when their targets are coming for them?

Igos KNEES Veran in the back, then clamps on a chinlock. Igos pulls Veran against the knee, but fans rally and duel as she fights up. Veran pries the chinlock open, and she arm-drags Igos! Igos comes back but into a SHOTEI! Igos staggers, Veran runs in to knee lift! Veran keeps moving to LARIAT! Both of them are down and the fans are thunderous! Fans chant “This is Awesome!” again while the two crawl for opposite corners. Veran stands up first, she runs corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Igos reels Veran in, TORNADO HOTSHOT! Veran staggers, Igos slingshots in to springboard QUEBRADA! Direct hit this time! Cover, TWO!
Veran stands, Igos fires off the strike fest! IKANA- NO, Veran avoids the knee thrust! Veran fires off fast hands and ROCKS Igos with a forearm! Veran whips, Igos reverses but Veran comes back to FLYING FOREARM! Fans fire up with Veran and she drags Igos back to a drop zone. Veran goes back up the corner, BEETLE- NO, Igos kicks her from below! Fans fire up, Igos ROCKS Veran! But Veran ROCKS Igos in return! They go back and forth, and Veran eggs Igos on! Igos fires another shot! Veran fires another, Igos fires another, and repeat! The forearms fly fast and furious! The fans fire up, and Igos choke grips Veran!
Veran choke grips Igos in return! They fight for control, Sahasrahla reprimands, they break but also shove Sahasrahla away! Igos kicks low, but then he ducks Veran’s SHOTEI, and it hits Sahasrahla!! Down goes the referee! Veran apologizes to Sahasrahla, but Igos DECKS Veran! And then he notices Sahasrahla is down! Igos is frustrated, and he storms over to where Sahasrahla fell. Igos gets Sahasrahla back up, but he’s still pretty woozy. Igos shouts at Sahasrahla to wake up, but Veran O’Conner Rolls! Sahasrahla counts, TWO!!! Veran and Igos both check with Sahasrahla, and he’s pretty sure that was still two!
Veran swings but Igos boots the haymaker away and back elbows her! Igos gets Veran’s arm for a SAYANAGI! Igos drags Veran back up, SAYANAGIS again, then drops for an ARMBAR! But Veran quickly scrambles up to her feet and stacks Igos! TWO, Igos still has Veran’s arm, but Veran kicks his legs out!

Igos avoids the dropkick, and KNEES Veran as she sits up! Igos drags Veran up, POSTS her, then goes out to the apron. Igos BOOTS Veran’s head into the post!! Fans lose their minds while slumps in the corner! Igos gets in, drags her out of the corner and throws her down. Cover, TWO!?!?!? Fans are thunderous but Igos is seething!

Winner: Igos du Ikana, by pinfall (advances to the next round)
It is a standing ovation here in Eldin Canyon! The Ikana Royal Family appears to celebrate with Igos and accompany him back up the ramp. Will the Ruler of Ruin rise from the ashes and take over all of Hyrule?
As for Veran, she is clearly emotional. It was an incredible match, but it was still a defeat for the Sorceress of Shadow. But fans cheer her on as she stands back up, and even chant, “Thank You, Veran!” Veran manages a smile through the tears, and she waves to the fans. She bows in thanks for them saying that, wipes the tears away, and makes her own way backstage. Is this the last chapter for Veran’s legacy?
This one was a lot of fun for how tricky it was to choose who goes over. Two former Dark Horse Stampede winners in Ladrona and Byrne, but Byrne goes over. Ladrona is a fun character, a strong character, but Byrne is the stronger competitor. Lupay ended up a lot more El Phantasmo than I meant him to be but who else is known for clawing his opponent’s back these days? I ended up making Lupay the high-flyer of the Faces of Evil, too, since there are two powerhouses in Glutko and Militron, and Harlequin is going to be a bit wilder.
Odolwa VS Ghirahim and Veran VS Igos were the hard ones to say who should go over. Well, alright, it was easy to say Ghirahim didn’t need to go over because he’s already gotten a lot of shine with his year long feud with Midna. Odolwa is another Dark Horse Stampede winner, he deserves to move up the rankings a bit. Veran VS Igos could’ve gone either way in my head, maybe I could’ve waited for that match-up in a later round but it is what it is. Igos moves on, we’re going to have a fun match-up of him and Odolwa, while Veran’s story is both in limbo and open to possibilities. I just have to figure out what those are.
