HPW Triforce Championship: Link VS Kage!
Why is it that the Hero of Hyrule and the Dark Force’s newest member look so much alike? Why does Kage have an obsession with him? Is there something someone isn’t telling us? All of these questions deserve an answer, but the squared circle only cares about one question: Who is better? Can Link keep this title from his dark and brooding doppelganger? Or will a shadow be cast on all of HPW?
To further the resemblance, Kage is wearing a copy of Link’s Hero of Old entrance gear! But instead of green and gold, it’s all black and grey! It makes his stark white skull face paint and red eyes stand out even more! And just like in Necluda, he stares at the entryway as Link makes his entrance.

She gets up on the apron, Sahasrahla tells her to hop down, Link pushes back to turn sleeper into a cover! TWO, and Kage ENZIGURIS Link down! Aryll shouts for them to stop and she opens the folder. She wants them to look at the papers. Kage just goes back to Link, for the third SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!
Link flounders to a corner while Kage stalks him. Kage hoists Link up to the top rope backwards then climbs up behind him. Kage wraps on a sleeper! Fans anticipate what Kage’s after and so does Aryll! She quickly runs around to the timekeeper’s area and grabs a mic! “Please, stop! Don’t do this!” She wants Kage to spare Link, but not because of the title. “You shouldn’t do this to your own brother!” Kage stops and stares at Aryll as she’s on the apron and fans are definitely shocked to hear that. Aryll points to the folder and tells him to read it for himself. Kage looks over, fans are dueling, “YES! YES! YES!” “NO! NO! NO!” and Kage steps down!
Kage walks over to the folder and picks it up. He looks at the papers, and he’s both angry and confused. He throws the papers away and says it has to be a trick. But at the same time, everyone else sees the resemblance… Aryll defends it’s true, but he tells her she’s lying! “IT’S NOT TRUE! IT’S A TRICK!” Kage climbs back up behind Link and CLUBS away on his back! “IT’S A TRICK! IT’S A TRICK!” Kage sits Link up and wraps on the sleeper! Link holds on for dear life as Kage tries the suplex! Kage hops down but brings Link into the Tree of Woe! Kage holds Link up to KICK away on his back! Then he CLUBS Link back down!
Kage stomps away on Link, shouting, “IT’S A TRICK! IT’S A TRICK!” Sahasrahla counts, Kage won’t let off, so Sahasrahla pulls him away. Kage shoves him away and then basement dropkicks Link in the head! Aryll shouts and Sahasrahla warns Kage but Kage just shouts in Link’s face, “You are not my brother! You are NOT my brother!” Aryll says he is but Kage shouts at her, “HE’S NOT! He’s not my brother! And you’re not my sister!” Kage stomps Link more, Sahasrahla counts but Kage won’t stop! Sahasrahla warns Kage again, but Kage sits Link back up on the top rope. Kage climbs up behind Link and wraps on the sleeper!
Sahasrahla counts, Aryll stands up on the apron! Aryll pleads with Kage and Link fights the hold! Sahasrahla tells Aryll to hop down, and he counts the ropebreak for being in the corner. Kage throws forearms on Link’s back and neck as the count climbs! Kage gets Link up in the sleeper hold, but Sahasrahla is having the bell ring?!? Link pushes off the corner, SLICED BREAD! But what’s the decision!? Sahasrahla goes to the ring announcer, Purah, and she announces that the decision is LINK wins, by disqualification!
Winner: Link, by disqualification (still HPW Triforce Champion)
Kage’s anger got the better of him and the referee made him pay for not listening to authority. But speaking of that anger, he gets up and wants after Link, not aware of the decision. Sahasrahla stands between him and Link and explains, and that only makes him angrier! Kage shoves Sahasrahla down, then fires off hands on Link! Link counter punches, fires haymakers in return, then clotheslines Kage up and out of the ring! Aryll wants Link to stop, pointing to the papers. Is that all true then? Is Kage their long lost sibling? Link is frustrated and conflicted, but he still goes out of the ring.
But instead of going after Kage, he grabs the belt and then ushers Aryll to the ramp. Aryll wants him to wait and go to Kage, but Link shakes his head. Link keeps ushering his sister up the ramp and to the stage, but what about his brother?
Second Annual Hyrule Warriors Match!
The 33-person battle royal returns, and the rules are the same as last year. We start with three, a new entry will be sent out every minute, and eliminations are over-the-top-rope until only two are left. Then it becomes a standard 1v1 match, first fall to a finish! Who will be standing tall at the very end, headed for a head-on collision with the Triforce Champion?
The very first entry this year is the boulder busting Sage of Fire, Rosso! A tall task being among the first three, even for one as big and tough as him. Second is the Dark Force’s Gibdo! He wasn’t in last year’s Hyrule Warriors, how will he fare? And the third entry is… The Dark Force’s Cia! She did very well for herself last year but the bigger point is that she’s already got back-up! The bell rings and yep, the Dark Forces mug Rosso! They’re definitely motivated to win since Kage failed to take the Triforce title. Gibdo CLUBS away on Rosso and puts him in a corner, where he and Cia both stomp away on him.

Cia and Hilda both kick low but they both block the other’s kick!
Cia and Hilda tell the other to let go and they complain when the other doesn’t. They eventually agree to do it at the same time.

But then Gibdo sucker punches Rosso! They brawl and Joelle gets to hide in another corner.

Ravio runs and RABBIT KNEES!! Cover, RAVIO WINS?!?
Winner: Ravio, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the HPW Triforce Championship)
Incredible! Ravio was the last one in and is the last one standing! And now he’s going to challenge Link for the top title in all of Hyrule! But will Murausagi’s luck run out when he has to face the Hero of Hyrule head-on?
Woo, what an epic! Just like last year, that Hyrule Warriors match took a lot of time to put together, and was a lot to writhe just in general. Title status quo was kept but I hope the matches were good enough to justify it. And I have a feeling the finish to Link VS Kage feels very WWE in that it was “ruined” because of how it became about the story beat of the long lost brother and stuff. It was easier than claiming Cia and the Dark Forces somehow created Kage out of dark magic, though that still probably could’ve happened cuz this is HPW.

Cragma stands, Freezlord FLYING- NO, NORTHERN LIGHTS COUNTER! Bridging cover, TWO!! Cragma is beside himself, but he hurries to get Freezlord up. JAWBREAKER from Freezlord!

Yunobo VS Dinalfos!
A third generation Goron wrestler takes on a physical specimen who set a new standard at the Training Center. This is truly a big way to end the Stampede, who will be the final Dark Horse heading to the Coliseum?
Yunobo is a bit shy as he makes his entrance, and also slow rolls into the ring. Dinalfos gets in Yunobo’s face, and Yunobo gulps before putting on a tough face. The ref has them back off, the bell rings, and fans rally up as Yunobo and Dinalfos approach again. Dinalfos UPPERCUTS Yunobo right down! Fans rally for Yunobo but Dinalfos drags him up to put into a corner. Dinalfos CLUBS Yunobo again and again and again, then fires off forearms and body shots and fast hands! The ref counts, Dinalfos lets off and brings Yunobo out to short arm LARIAT! Fans boo Dinalfos as he looms over Yunobo.
Dinalfos sits Yunobo up and wraps him up in a seated abdominal stretch! Yunobo endures, fights as the fans rally, and Yunobo throws body shots in return! Yunobo is free, he runs, and rolls Dinalfos up, TWO! Dinalfos CLOBBERS Yunobo! Dinalfos roars and soaks up the heat before he drags Yunobo up, whips him to a corner, and then SPLASHES!

Dinalfos snarls and CHOKES Yunobo!
The ref reprimands and counts, Dinalfos lets off, then covers again, TWO! Dinalfos tries another cover, TWO! Dinalfos snarls again as he brings Yunobo up.

Fans rally as Yunobo runs, to LARIAT! Yunobo starts rallying with big clotheslines! Yunobo is starting to fire up, and he fires haymakers on Dinalfos! Dinalfos knees low! Dinalfos runs, but Yunobo ducks the clothesline to hit a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Fans rally while Dinalfos goes to a corner.
Yunobo gets up and he looks around, wondering what to do. He signals with his hands for some rolling and fans fire up! Yunobo runs in, CANNONBALL but Dinalfos moves! Yunobo only hits buckles, and Rusl jokes that the ring might’ve shifted towards that direction. Dinalfos drags Yunobo out of the ring, and RAMS him into railing! Those also shift from the impact! Dinalfos CLUBS away on Yunobo’s back while the ref starts the ring count. Dinalfos brings Yunobo back up and whips him hard into more railing! Those railings definitely move, and Dinalfos leaves Yunobo behind for the count to take care of!
Fans rally for Yunobo as the count climbs to 5 of 10! Yunobo drags himself up with the railing to stand at 7, hobbles over at 8, and he rolls in at 9! Only for Dinalfos to stomp him right at the ropes! Fans boo as Dinalfos CHOKES Yunobo on the ropes, but he lets off as the ref counts. Dinalfos mocks Yunobo, “All that size and you can’t do anything with it! Hope your family isn’t watching!” Fans boo and Dinalfos runs to SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Yunobo survives, and he looks upset! Fans rally for Yunobo but Dinalfos stomps Yunobo. Dinalfos drags Yunobo to a corner, goes up, and FALLING SPLASHES! Cover, ONE!?!
Fans are going nuts and Dinalfos is shocked! Dinalfos CLUBS Yunobo, grabs a leg, and SMASHES the knee! Dinalfos puts on a HALF CRAB! Yunobo endures, fans rally as he crawls and reaches out, ROPEBREAK! Dinalfos holds until the ref counts 4, then he drags Yunobo up. Dinalfos scoops Yunobo! That’s his combine record setting strength! But Yunobo slips free and he scoops Dinalfos back! Yunobo SLAMS Dinalfos! Fans fire up and Yunobo is feeling it now! Yunobo stalks Dinalfos to a corner, but Dinalfos throws haymakers! Dinalfos backs Yunobo down, whips, but Yunobo reverses, only for Dinalfos to KNEE SMASH! And then he CLOBBERS Yunobo!
Fans boo as Dinalfos talks a bunch of trash on Yunobo’s family! Dinalfos then eggs Yunobo on, dares him to stand, and Yunobo does. Dinalfos kicks low, and he manages to suplex Yunobo up and over! Dinalfos roars, runs, and drops a JUMPING ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Yunobo is still in this, but Dinalfos is furious! Dinalfos stands Yunobo up, ROCKS him to a corner, then stomps a mudhole in!

Dinalfos stands Yunobo up, RAMS into him again, and repeat!
The ref counts again, Dinalfos stops at 4, and he whips Yunobo corner to corner! But Yunobo bounces off buckles to NECKBREAKER DROP! Yunobo crawls to a cover, TWO! Both men rise up, and they start throwing hands! Fans rally behind Yunobo, he whips, but Dinalfos whips to kick low! Dinalfos underhooks, but Yunobo back drops him up and out of the ring! Fans fire up as Yunobo goes out to stomp on Dinalfos! Yunobo’s rage is boiling and fans are loving it! Yunobo goes back for Dinalfos, but Dinalfos YANKS him into steel steps! Fans fire up but the ring count is climbing as Dinalfos drags Yunobo back up.
Dinalfos whips Yunobo, but Yunobo reverses! Dinalfos goes crashing into railing! That definitely moved things around! Fans are loving this as Yunobo storms up, but we’re past 5 of 10! Yunobo’s rage is getting the better of him as he drags Dinalfos up. Yunobo whips but Dinalfos reverses, and Yunobo goes crashing into steel steps! The steps go tumbling away! Fans rally up as hard they can and Yunobo staggers up to his feet. And then Dinalfos SPEARS him through railing!! Fans lose their minds and even commentary is completely stunned by it! But the ring count is still climbing! The ref hits TEN, it’s a DOUBLE COUNT OUT!!
Double Count Out Draw
Fans are going nuts again, and some are upset! What does a draw mean for the Dark Horse Stampede? Speaking of upset, Dinalfos and Yunobo get up and keep throwing hands! Did they not hear the bell? They go around commentary and Dinalfos RAMS Yunobo into the apron! Yunobo CLUBS and hammers Dinalfos, security rushes out to stop this! Wait, here comes HPW COO, Humpback Hook Halibut! Hook’s very involved in the HPW Training Center which many of these Dark Horses pass through. Hook talks with the ref and the ring announcer. And as the announcer tells us, Hook has decided this draw means BOTH men advance to Clash of Fates!!
Fans cheer again and this news helps calm Dinalfos and Yunobo down. So now we have five Dark Horses entering the Hyrule Warriors match despite the field only being eight. Then will Dinalfos and Yunobo be able to settle this fight within the massive battle royal? Will any of the Dark Horses make it to the end?
I did my best to get this done a bit quickly, in anticipation of Clash of Fates being a bigger endeavor because of the Hyrule Warriors match, but also because my schedule’s rather busy and I wanted to make sure I didn’t wait until the last minute. It was a bit trickier to really give these matches what felt good to me, but at the same time, these “Dark Horses” are supposed to be newer/younger wrestlers, they aren’t at the top of the card, so none of these matches should be matching championship caliber stuff. Also full disclosure, I changed up my choice on the final match as I was putting it together because I felt it’d be a shame for one of them to lose.
