Cathreine Zeta Jones defeats Salma Hayek to become War Queen

Catherine Zeta Jones (53%) conquers Salma Hayek (47%) Negotiations are being finalized for this grudge rematch for The "War Queen" Title. Salma, after recovering from her first match that left her handcuffed, beaten, disrobed and stripped of her title had thought of little else but getting revenge on Catherine. "War Queen", Catherine was now enjoying that status. She was enjoying defending her title against all comers and defending it admirably. She had expected Salma to challenge her and was ready to accept.

She had heard rumors that Salma was afraid of her, that she had taken the fight out of the previous "War Queen". Catherine had thought they were only rumors, knowing Salma had taken time to convalesce and take a limited number of fights when she recovered. And now she was sure there was no doubt Salma was ready to take her on again and regain the title and exact her revenge when the terms of the fight were brought by Salma. She wanted a handcuff strap match. Catherine in her bravado had publicly exclaimed, "If she wants to fight in handcuffs, I'll fight her in handcuffs or anything else she wants!" Now she was ready to see if Salma was sincere. Both women eyeing the other to see if the other blinked when the match was described as the two being handcuffed and tethered with one end of their handcuffs to a set of leg irons making them a mere 4 feet from each other. No chance to escape until one could retrieve the universal key which would be taped to one of the ring posts, in which case she could then handcuff both or just one her hapless opponent's arms or even her legs to whatever she could, the ring, guardrail, whatever and have her way with her for two minutes. The story of the upcoming fight was now in the fighter's eyes, neither blinking both studying the other intently for fear or hesitation. With signatures signed and neither showing emotion the match was now officially set. But both knew from her own feelings there was both fear and exhilaration at the prospect of this fight. Salma will get her revenge and her title back and Catherine will humiliate her again and keep her now coveted title.

The night of the fight arrives. The fighters are introduced, Salma first. She enters in an Aztec design decorated poncho and ornate headdress. As she slides through the ropes we get a good look at her magnificent tan legs contrasted by white wrestling boots. Catherine enters know in a black robe, her curly long hair blows in the breeze caused by fans to cool off the ring. She jumps in the ring limbering up. Formal introductions are made. Salma carefully removes her accouterments as if this fight were the preparation for an ancient ritual but probably no less important in this modern ritual for her. Catherine is also removing her entrance clothes and seems in awe as Salma is a vision in a bright yellow two piece with white wrestling boots with Aztec designs adorning the sides and white plush socks. The light colors contrasting her bronze skin. Cat pales in comparison wearing a simple black one piece and black boots, the only contrast being some white ruffles on the suit and white laces on the boots against her creamy complexion.

The two approach as the referee motions them center ring where she attaches to each a wristband then handcuffs over Cat's left wrist and Salma's right wrist. The leg iron has already been attached leaving the fighters a mere 4 feet from each other. No need to go to their corners as the bell is sounded. The two tug at each other realizing quickly despite the cotton wristband the metal handcuffs still dig harshly into their soft skin. Both seem to be on the same wavelength as they give up trying to pull each other toward them and fly at each other wrapping the cuffs around their fists. Both collide striking hard each other in the chest. They collapse on the mat. Slowly rising to their knees they wrap as much of the chain around their fists and begin to pummel the other. The fight taking an early toll as each is beginning to already show marks and cuts as they face each other knee to knee they take the fight to their feet where they know they will be tested. Continuing to pummel each other they've opened gashes to each other's faces. Cat reels back and goes for a crotch kick which winds Salma, then another but Salma catches her wrapping the iron around her ankle and sending her twisting back then flipped to the floor. Salma stomps her mercilessly then axehandles the Welsh woman with fists of iron. She wraps the chain around her throat and chokes her till her face turns red. For some reason instead of choking her out she releases it seeming to enjoy inflicting punishment of all kinds she whips Cat over to the ropes and through the middle ropes. Salma leaps over the top rope as the two are now dangling over the ring apron. Salma climbs Cat situating herself securing her boots to the back of Cat's knees and upper calves as she pummels her. The punches are only somewhat effective due to the irons stretching her tethered arm and only having so much room to punch her. Cat blocks many of the punches and manages to throw a few of her own.

Frustrated, Salma leaps back over the top rope and drags Cat back continuing her punishment against the ropes. Both fighters lean back too far and flip over the top rope then continue to drag one another on over to the ring apron. Salma tries to choke Cat but Cat blocks it grabbing her briefs and lifting her up. Salma screams as Cat holds her threatening to DDT her onto the concrete floor below but instead turns it into a suplex and goes off the apron onto the floor with her following her leaping off the apron knowing the chain would send her over anyway. She lands hard with a cross body press on top of Salma. Salma is stunned and winded from the hard fall and Cat landing on her. Cat pummels her with the chain and then rams her into the ringpost. Up to now both had only minor cuts but this opened a large gash on Salma's forehead.

Cat dragged her back into the ring and flipped, choked and beat Salma. Salma gamely fought back at one time slowing the momentum with a well executed headscissor converted to a figure four but Cat escapes and puts on her own squeezing her head between her legs. Both had time to regain some wind. But now Cat had made it over to the post with the key. Untaping it she had it in hand. Salma tried to wrest it away from her only to have her already bloodied head opened further with a furious fist. Cat unlocked her end of the handcuff rubbing her irritated wrist.

Salma getting some of her bearings looked sick as she knew what was coming as Cat dragged her out of the ring tangling her handcuff around the ring and locking her other wrist to her handcuff and the ropes. She takes apart the leg irons and locks her ankles in place one on the ringpost and the other spread across the ropes. Salma looked like she was forming a big X. Cat had a pair of paramedic shears that could cut through anything and proceeded to once again humiliate Salma by cutting off her clothes and shearing some of her hair. She pummeled her senseless with fists then as a further humiliation on the beaten woman she climbed and held onto her body as she caressed the naked bronze skin for the last of the two minutes she was allotted. Just before her time was up she sunk her teeth into both tits at Salma screamed in excruciating pain. Cat slid off her and posed in victory but just before she left the hanging Salma she delivered one last crotch shot that made her pass out. Cat leaves victorious and humiliates Salma a second time. Cat is beaming as chants of "War Queen" reign out and Cat responds looking back only once at Salma and smiling all the more through her own pain from the battle.
