(EAW intro plays)
(‘Girl Gang’ by Leikeli 47 plays over the loudspeakers as the crane camera takes in the crowd of the capacity packed Hampton Coliseum. ‘Andrea, by my Valentine’, ‘Punish Me, Remi’, ‘Layla is my Princess’ can be seen on crowd signs as the camera pans down to the announce desk with CJ Hana and Gavin Kirkland.)
CJ Hana: Hello everyone and welcome to Thursday Night Empire! We wanna wish a very happy Valentines day to everyone…Aw, Gavin buddy…what’s wrong?
Gavin Kirkland: Nothing…
CJ Hana:Alright, you’re just seeming broody is all, toni-
Gavin Kirkland: Valentine’s Day is bullshit! It’s not even a real Holiday, just an excuse for commerce…dammit *A thud can be heard as Gavin bangs the announce desk with his fist*
CJ Hana: Aw, you’re upset Cleo shot you down, yeah? It’ll be okay, Gav! We’ve got a hell of a show tonight, debuts, qualifiers, and more! Don’t worry Gavin, I’m sure you’ll be back to your pleasant self in no time! First up we have the debut of Io Ishimori against Santana Matthews!
Gavin Kirkland: Oh, no, yeah, that’s what I need, the flattest chests on Empire in a match together!
CJ Hana: annnnnd there he is…
(The camera cuts to Maria Del Rey in the middle of the ring)
Maria Del Rey: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“California Love” by 2pac feat Dr.Dre plays as Santana Matthews casually makes her way down the ramp)
Maria Del Rey: Making her way to the ring…residing in Somerset, Kentucky weighing in at 122 pounds… SANTANA MATTHEWSSSSSS!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Here is someone trying to prove a point, Santana Matthews is here to prove that she can beat the best of the best and what way to prove it by beating a future star in the debuting Io Ishimori
CJ Hana: But Ishimori is bright she’ll find a way to beat Matthews I feel it.
( Santana gets into the ring as “Underground” by GOB hits and Io Ishimori makes her way to the stage with a mask on)
Maria Del Rey: And her opponent…from Osaka Japan weighing in at 119 pounds, IO ISHIMORIIIII
Gavin Kirkland: Io Ishimori is not someone to mess with, she stated she wants to make Santana Matthews evening full of “pain and suffering”
CJ Hana: Well I think we’re going to see that happen tonight for both women none of them will back down.
(Io Ishimori takes off her mask and gets into the ring and the referee sounds for the bell)
(DING DING DING!)
Gavin Kirkland: This match is underway as they lock up in the middle of the ring, Ishimori gets the advantage as she pushes Matthews in the corner…clean break as Ishimori is circling around Matthews, Matthews tries to lock up again but ISHIMORI KICKS HER IN THE GUT Ishimori throws her out of the ring Ishimori runs SUICIDE DIVE it connects as Matthews grabs for leverage on the barricade.
CJ Hana: Matthews lands a punch on Io but she shakes it off as Santana punches her again. NO ISHIMORI GRABS THE FIST AND OPENS IT, FINGER SNAP SANTANA FALLS TO A KNEE ISHIMORI KNEES HER IN THE FACE AS THE CROWD BOOS. Ishimori quickly rolls Santana into the ring to go for the cover
Gavin Kirkland: Santana quickly kicks out and Ishimori quickly locks Santana into a headlock. Santana pries herself out of it as she catches Ishimori with a back forearm, Ishimori stumbles back as Matthews runs forward…BUT ISHIMORI LEVELS MATTHEWS WITH A DROPKICK THIS IS NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR MATTHEWS AS ISHIMORI MAKES A QUICK CUT THROAT GESTURE AND WITHOUT HASTE QUICKLY PULLS MATTHEWS UP AND INTO POSITION FOR THE…
CJ Hana: INVIERNO! THE SPINNING REVERSE STO CONNECTS AS ISHIMORE GOES FOR THE PIN
(DING DING DING!)
(“Underground” by GOB plays as Ishimori gets up to her feet with no surprise to her win)
Maria Del Rey: Ladies and gentlemen your winner…IO ISHIMORI!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Ishimori was ruthless against Matthews and in the end finished her quick.
CJ Hana: Winter has come Gavin, and Io Ishimori is here to prove a point but I have a feeling the worst is yet to come.
(Commercial for Sunday Night Voltage, LIVE! From the Xfinity Center in College Park, Maryland, featuring a special look at the Champion versus Champion match between the Visual Prophet and Noah Reigner.)
( Camera opens up backstage to Kassidy Heart who is wearing an Ahren Fournier “BAHHH-lieve it” GOAT Champ T-shirt and standing by her lonesome, appearing unamused and rather indignant while scrolling through her timeline full of corny Valentines day memes and jokes. )
???: Ms. Heart?
( Kassidy looks up, and a nervous intern who appears shorter than her due to her heels is standing by waiting for her attention. )
Intern: Hi there, sorry for bothering you, but the VIP Meet & Greet crew people are here to see you.
Kassidy Heart: *sigh* How long is this going to take again?
Intern: Not so sure.
Kassidy: It’s so stupid that they’re making me do this. Typical EAW to market the soul and authenticity out of everything, even turning my last name into a stupid promotion. “Meet & Greet with Kassidy HEART on Valentines Day!” How clever… not.
( A group of ecstatic fans approach, courtesy of the intern. There is a photographer with a Canon T6i camera ready to take pictures. They talk amongst themselves, all jumping at the opportunity to take a photo-op, but they are preemptively restrained by security. Kassidy is first approached by a married couple with their child. )
Married man: Hello Kassidy! My wife and my daughter are such huge fans of yours, they rave about you every single week and after giving one of your matches a chance I can certainly see the appeal!
Kassidy: Yeah yeah, that’s nice.
( The family gathers around Kassidy and take several photos together. Kassidy signs their Kindergarten aged daughters Jaded Wolf Hearts poster, and hands it back to her so fast it looks like she threw it at her. )
( The next two male fans to approach her are psychotic, buggy-eyed superfans wearing matching Kassidy Heart cosplay gear. )
Superfan # 1: OH MY GOD CRAIG THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING.
Kassidy: Unfortunately it is…
Superfan # 2: I’M IN THE VICINITY OF KASSIDY HEART HERSELF!
Superfan # 1: QUEEN KASSIDY ASHLYNN BRIGHTON CORVINGTON!
Superfan # 2: BORN ON JANUARY 26TH, 1995 AT 8:38 AM!
Kassidy: The time though?
( The two superfans continue to fawn over her as they exchange selfies, both snuggling up to Kassidy prompting an uncomfortable look on Kass’ face. Security drags them away after what feels like an eternity, and she is approached by two teenage girls. They are taken back by her presence. )
Teenage girl: Kassidy I just wanna say I’m your biggest fan.
Kassidy: You sure you’re a bigger fan than those guys?
Teenage girl: Uh huh. I even roleplay as you in in e-fed.
Kassidy: An e-what now?
Teenage girl: E-fed! You know, a fantasy wrestling league? I use you as my pic base, cut promos as you, I even ship you with the Theron handler :embarrassed:
Kassidy: Yikes. Well, I hope you’re at least winning all the titles.
Teenage girl: I’ve been World Champion for 9 months now!
Kassidy: Nice to know the cyber me gets more title opportunities than the real me 😐
Teenage girl: One request Kass, do you mind doing more photoshoots without Sienna, Tyler and Ahren in them all the time? You’re making it hard for SkyHighDrakeKing to do cutouts.
Kassidy: …I guess?
( An EAW road agent approaches Kassidy. )
Road agent: ‘Scuse me Kassidy, you have a delivery sent to your dressing room.
( Kassidy leaps at the opportunity to follow the road agent away from the group of fans still clamoring for her attention. She walks down the hallway and cuts left to enter a dressing room that reads “KH :heart: ” on it. )
( Kassidy swings the door open, and her dressing room is drastically different from how she last saw it. There are violinists playing a rendition of “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion as the room is covered with flowers, and the walls are draped with Titanic-themed decor — reimagining the room itself into a Titanic-themed sanctuary. )
Kassidy: Oh… my gawd… This is not real.
( Kassidys words were directed to the road agent, however when she turns to speak to him he is no longer there. Her curiosity leads her further into the room, surveying the scene, watching the violinists play the rendition, and gazing at the running fountain equipped with speakers where the lyrics sung by Celine Dion can be heard. A golden spotlight then shines on a treasure chest sitting at an altar in the center of the room, which prompts Kassidy to draw nearer. )
( Kassidy reaches for the treasure chest, but before she lays a hand on it the lid slowly opens up automatically to reveal a ‘Heart Of The Ocean’ necklace replica with a gold encrusted trim. Kassidy’s eyes light up in wonder, and she picks it up in disbelief. )
( Underneath the necklace words can be seen written on the velvet surface. )
( Note: “This Valentines Day I am only a specter. On the next, I will be your lover.” )
(“Boom Clap” — Charli XCX plays through the speakers as Layla Lockhart comes out from the curtain to a positive reaction from the crowd. This places a huge grin on Layla’s face as she poses on top of the ramp.)
Maria Del Rey: The following match is a TAG TEAM MATCH and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, from Salem, Oregon, she is “The White Lion”, LAAYYYYYYLAAAAAAA LOOOCCKKKKHAAAARRRRRRRRTTT!!
CJ Hana: Layla Lockhart has had a tough time with getting that victory since returning to Empire! She has managed to put on fantastic performances; however, it hasn’t been enough to win! Layla is an excellent wrestler! She puts everything into her matches, but she just needs to dig deeper and pull out the one thing that will assure her the victory!
Gavin Kirkland: She’s not going to win looking like that, CJ! I mean, her hair looks like cotton candy! This girl is constantly choking on her opportunities! She can’t seem to win to save her life! Perhaps, she will get a victory tonight as her partner will be the one doing the heavy lifting!
(“Roll With Me” — Charli XCX replaces “Boom Clap” as the crowd gives a standing ovation as Andrea Valentine walks out from the curtain with a huge smile on her face. Andrea stands next to Layla Lockhart before posing for the crowd.)
Maria Del Rey: Introducing her tag team partner, from Orlando, Florida, she is “The Heart of Empire”, ANNNDRRREEEEEAAAAAA VALLLEEEENNNNNNTIIINNNNNNNEEE!!
Gavin Kirkland: Here is my second choice when it comes to being my Valentine, CJ! Andrea Valentine was robbed at King of Elite by that traitor Serena Bennett! Andrea is one of the most deserving in the back to get a title opportunity! However, she may not be as deserving to go on this dinner date as Cleopatra is!
CJ Hana: Dude, Cleopatra rejected you last week!
Gavin Kirkland: She was playing hard to get!
(“Glory and Gore” — Lorde replaces “Roll With Me” as The Crowe’s Nest’s Raven Roberts and Empire Tag Team Champion, Jael walk out to a mixed reaction from the crowd. The two women are embracing the reception as they look down their opponents, who are already in the ring.)
Maria Del Rey: Introducing their opponents, the team of Raven Roberts and one-half of the Empire Tag Team Champions, Jael! THE CROWWWEEEEEEEEEE’SSSSS NEEESSSSSSSSSTTTT!!
CJ Hana: The Crowe’s Nest are two women who managed to make a huge comeback by dethroning The Queen’s Court at King of Elite to become two-time Empire Tag Team Champions! They are the only team to have accomplished that! You may like or hate them, but these women are good!
Gavin Kirkland: I hate these bird brains more than anything on this brand! They took the Empire Tag Team Championship away from my precious Cleopatra! How dare they do such a fowl act? Why is Empire encouraging this type of behavior! This is not FOX-like behavior!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: Jael from The Crowe’s Nest and Andrea Valentine from her team begin this tag team match! The two women circle around each other before locking up! Jael manages to get the upper hand by twisting Andrea’s arm, but our lovely blonde manages to do a cartwheel and counters the arm twisting onto Jael! Jael manages to get Andrea’s head down as she connects with a side headlock, but Andrea manages to push Jael off of her! Jael turns around as Andrea tries to go for a superkick, but Jael manages to duck and gets Andrea by her right leg before connecting with a dragon screw leg whip! The former Specialists Champion clutches to her right leg as it seems like “The Original Sin” has found a body part to pick on for the remainder of the match! Jael gets Andrea by her right leg as she slams it down against the mat! Don’t hurt her, you monster! You can see the pain on Andrea’s face and she must be wondering why I am not coming to her aid? “Help Gavin, save me” is what Andrea is probably saying in her mind at the moment!
CJ Hana: You are a strange, strange man. Jael gets Andrea Valentine’s right leg before connecting with a leg ddt! Andrea jumps in response as she is clutching to her leg in pain, but Jael manages to get a good hold on Andrea’s leg before stretching herself out and tagging in Raven Roberts into the match! Jael gets on one knee as Raven gets a good hold on Andrea before connecting with an aided knee bulldog! Andrea Valentine is down as Raven Roberts is the only Crowe in the ring at the moment! IT LOOKS LIKE RAVEN IS SITTING ANDREA BACK UP BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF MUAY THAI KICKS ON ANDREA! RAVEN KICKS BEGIN TO GET FASTER AND FASTER AS ANDREA GOES BACK, BUT SEEMS TO BE DOING HER BEST WITH TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT SHE SITS HERSELF UP! ONE LAST MUAY THAI KICK ON ANDREA AS SHE GOES DOWN! RAVEN STAYS ON THE OFFENSE AS SHE GETS ANDREA BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A JUDO THROW! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER JUDO THROW! RAVEN ROBERTS IS THROWING ANDREA VALENTINE LIKE SHE IS A RAG DOLL! SHE COULD POSSIBLY RIP ANDREA’S ARM OFF IF SHE WANTED TOO! WITH ONE LAST JUDO THROW, ANDREA LANDS HARSHLY ONTO A SEATED POSITION AS RAVEN IS QUICK TO FOLLOW THAT WITH A LOW DROPKICK THAT KNOCKS THE FORMER SPECIALISTS CHAMPION TO HER BACK!
Marti Solo: OOOOOOONE!!
Gavin Kirkland: The beautiful and blonde Andrea Valentine kicks out at one! I knew that she could do it! There are times that Andrea finds herself with a lack of offense in matches, but this girl has a ton of heart and she has a never die attitude to match! Raven applies a chinlock on Andrea, who is trying to reach over to her corner and tag in the useless tag team partner of hers for tonight, Layla Lockhart! Raven wrenches in the chinlock as the crowd begins to chant “LET’S GO ANDREA” and rally our second favorite blonde on Empire! The chants of the fans are getting stronger as Raven begins to lose grip of Andrea! Andrea is trying to use the chants of the fans as strengths as she is stumbling up to her feet! That bird brain is trying to keep my Andrea down, but it is not working whatsoever! Andrea manages to break herself free from the chinlock and back to her feet! RAVEN DOES THE SAME THING AS ANDREA GOES RIGHT AFTER RAVEN, BUT RAVEN MANAGES TO CLOTHESLINE, BUT ANDREA DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE AND REBOUNDS FROM THE ROPES! ANDREA WITH A TRIES TO GO FOR THE TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN, BUT RAVEN TRIES TO COUNT WITH A SIDEWALK SLAM, BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO TWIST HERSELF BACK INTO POSITION! RAVEN ROBERTS GOES ROUND AND ROUND AND SHE DESERVES EVERY SECOND OF IT! ANDREA FOLLOWS THAT WITH A HEADSCISSORS TAKE DOWN AS SHE SEES THAT SHE SEPARATED HERSELF FROM THE FORMER NEW BREED CHAMPION FOR THE TIME BEING! ANDREA IS REACHING TO HER CORNER AS SHE TAGS IN THE BUBBLY, BUT ANNOYING LAYLA LOCKHART!
CJ Hana: LAYLA LOCKHART HOPS HERSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE AND INSIDE THE RING! RAVEN ROBERTS SEEMS TO BE QUITE DIZZY AT THE MOMENT, BUT SHE IS TRYING HER BEST TO REGAIN HER COMPOSURE AND GET BACK TO HER FEET. THAT IS IMMEDIATELY STOPPED AS LAYLA CONNECTS WITH AXE HANDLES, WHICH KNOCKS RAVEN BACK DOWN, BUT SHE GETS HERSELF UP AS LAYLA CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER AXE HANDLES, WHICH KNOCKS RAVEN DONE AGAIN! LAYLA CONNECTS WITH SOME AXE HANDLES FOR THE THIRD TIME AS SHE MANAGES TO KNOCK “THE BIRD OF PREY” TO HER KNEES! LAYLA STAYS ON THAT OFFENSE AS SHE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SUPERHERO KICK! THE SUPERKICK THAT KNOCKS RAVEN ROBERTS TO HER BACK! LAYLA SEES THAT RAVEN IS DOWN AND QUICKLY CONNECTS WITH A REALITY CHECK! THE CARWHEEL KNEE DROP ON RAVEN AS LAYLA GOES FOR THE COVER!
Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!!
Gavin Kirkland: Can’t Layla Lockhart do anything right? If Andrea had nailed that move, the match would have been over! I may be exaggerating, but I’m just calling things how I see it! Layla gets Raven in position as she connects with a snap suplex! Layla gets Raven again and with the strength I’m surprise that she has in that scrawny body of hers, she manages to connect with another snap suplex to Raven! THIS TIME, SHE THROWS RAVEN ONTO THE CORNER! RAVEN MANAGES TO TURN HERSELF AROUND, BUT SHE IS STILL DOWN! LAYLA RUNS AND YES! LAYLA WITH THE BRONCO BUSTER! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST MOVE THAT SHE DID IN THIS BLOODY MATCH! RAVEN ROBERTS IS TRYING TO COMPOSE HERSELF AS LAYLA GETS RAVEN BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE AT THE CORNER! RAVEN MANAGES TO USE SOME STRENGTH TO PUSH LAYLA BACK A BIT! THIS MUST HAVE HAPPENED TO GIVE RAVEN SOME ROOM TO BREATHE, BUT LAYLA GOES RUNNING BACK TO RAVEN AS SHE CONNECTS WITH SHOTGUN DROPKICK AS THAT SENDS RAVEN BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! RAVEN IS BACKED AWAY TO THE TURNBUCKLES AS LAYLA FINDS HERSELF IN THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! LAYLA STANDS ABOVE RAVEN AS SHE GOES FOR SOME PUNCHES TO THE TOP OF RAVEN’S HEAD! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! RAVEN IS USING HER STRENGTH TO WALK AWAY FROM THE CORNER AS SHE HAS LAYLA IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! RAVEN CONNECTS WITH THE HUNTRESS BOMB! THE SIT-OUT SPINEBUSTER ON LAYLA!
CJ Hana: Raven Roberts gets back to her feet as she goes over to her corner to tag in Jael back into the match! This will be Jael’s second appearance in this tag team match! Raven gets Layla Lockhart in a position for the Alabama slam! Jael uses that and connects with DDT on Layla from Raven’s shoulders! The Song of Crows! Jael goes for the cover!
Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
Gavin Kirkland: Layla Lockhart kicks out at two! That was an impressive move for a couple of bird brains! I had to admit that, CJ! Jael begins to stalk on Layla as she slowly makes her way back to her feet! Layla is holding her neck as Jael runs and connects with a running swinging neckbreaker that takes “The Warrior Princess” down again! Jael gets back to her feet as she smirks at the sight of Layla Lockhart on the ground! JAEL BEGINS TO STOMP ON LAYLA’S STOMACH! OVER AND OVER AGAIN, LAYLA IS GETTING HER STOMACH STOMPED ON! THE OFFICIAL IS NEEDING TO TELL JAEL TO STOP IT! JAEL EXCHANGES A LOOK AT OUR OFFICIAL BEFORE TURNING HER ATTENTION BACK TO LAYLA! JAEL PULLS LAYLA BY HER RIGHT ARM TO MAKE HER RISE BACK TO HER FEET! JAEL THEN WHIPS LAYLA HARSHLY TO ONE OF THE CORNERS! JAEL RUNS AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO LAYLA LOCKHART! JAEL FOLLOWS THAT WITH KNEELING FACEBUSTER! POOR ANDREA VALENTINE IS TRYING TO CHEER ON THAT USELESS PARTNER OF HERS IN THE RING! YOU SHOULDN’T BE MAKING A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN LIKE ANDREA UPSET AND WORRIED! THIS GIRL’S SMILE RADIATES THE ROOM AND THAT CANNOT HAPPEN IF LAYLA CAUSES HER TEAM TO LOSE! JAEL MANAGES TO LIFT LAYLA ON HER SHOULDER BEFORE GETTING HER IN POSITION FOR A TREE-OF-WOE! BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS, LAYLA LOOKS LESS UNATTRACTIVE HUNG THAT WAY! JAEL IS TAKING A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH A DROPKICK ON LAYLA! LAYLA GETS OUT OF THE TREE-OF-WOE DUE TO THE IMPACT OF THE DROPKICK! JAEL GETS LAYLA IN POSITION FOR THAT ROPE HUNG DDT AS IT LOOKS LIKE THIS CAN BE THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR LAYLA! THE UNHOLY SERMON ON LAYLA LOCKHART! JAEL GOES FOR THE COVER AS THIS MATCH IS POSSIBLY OVER!
Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
CJ Hana: Andrea Valentine stops the count by jumping on top of Jael! Andrea is trying to save this match for her team as Raven Roberts goes right Andrea with a Lou Thesz press on Andrea as the two women begin to brawl! The two manage to roll themselves out of the ring as the official is demanding that the two women go back to their respective corners! Raven is demanding for a fight with Andrea, but Andrea is pointing to the ring, almost like she wants to settle it there! Meanwhile, Layla and Jael are the legal people in this match! The two women are back on their feet as Layla tries go connect with a kick to Jael’s stomach, but Jael manages to grab Layla by her leg before connecting with a dragon screw leg whip on Layla Lockhart’s leg! “The Original Sin” is back to her feet as Layla begins to cry out in pain as she clutches onto her leg! JAEL GETS LAYLA BY HER INJURED LEG AS IT LOOKS LIKE SHE IS GOING FOR A LEG DDT ON THAT SAME LEG THAT JAEL CONNECTING WITH A DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP ON! BUT, LAYLA USES HER LEFT AND UNINJURED LEG TO TRY TO KICK JAEL AWAY FROM HER! SHE IS QUICKLY TRYING TO KICK JAEL A FEW STEPS BACK, SO THAT SHE HAS ROOM TO BREATH AND GO TO HER PARTNER! THIS CAN BE THE OPENING THAT LAYLA NEEDS TO MAKE A COMEBACK IN THIS MATCH! JAEL MANAGES TO GRAB LAYLA BY HER UNINJURED LEG AGAIN, TRYING TO GRASP ON IT AND MAKE SURE THAT LAYLA DOES NOT MANAGE TO TAG IN ANDREA INTO THE MATCH! LAYLA LOCKHART CONNECTS WITH WITH AN ENZIGURI, MAKING JAEL STUMBLE TO HER KNEES! LAYLA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SUPERHERO KICK! JAEL FALLS TO HER BACK AS LAYLA IS SLOWLY CRAWLING FOR A TAG TO HER TAG TEAM PARTNER! IT SEEMS LIKE JAEL IS DOING THE SAME THING WITH RAVEN ROBERTS! JAEL MANAGES TO TAG IN RAVEN INTO THE MATCH AND JUST BARELY, LAYLA MANAGES TO TAG IN ANDREA VALENTINE TO THE MATCH!
Gavin Kirkland: The two former champions, who lost their championships at King of Elite are battling each other right now! RAVEN ROBERTS GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT ANDREA VALENTINE BENDS OVER BACKWARDS AS RAVEN GOES RUNNING PAST HER! ANDREA GETS BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE BEFORE TURNING HERSELF AROUND AND CONNECTING WITH A BACK KICK AS RAVEN BENDS FORWARD, HOLDING HER STOMACH! ANDREA BOUNCES FOR THE ROPES! LOVE HAZE! NO! RAVEN ROBERTS GOES BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SIDE CHOP TO ANDREA’S CHEST! ANDREA IS HOLDING HER CHEST IN PAIN AS RAVEN GOES FOR ANOTHER SIDE CHOP! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! ANDREA FINDS HERSELF BACKED INTO A CORNER AS RAVEN DELIVERS ONE LAST MEAN CHOP! MY POOR ANDREA’S CHEST IS RED! SOMEONE GET THIS BIRD BRAIN AWAY FROM THIS BEAUTY! Raven takes a few steps back before running and connecting with a big boot to Andrea at the corner! Andrea falls against the corner as Raven pulls Andrea closer before taking a few steps back again! Raven runs before she spikes Andrea with the spike DDT! The former Specialists Champion is planted on the ground before Raven rushes for the cover!
Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!
CJ Hana: LAYLA LOCKHART RUSHES BACK INTO THE RING TO BREAK THE PIN FALL! SHE DID NOT WANT TO RISK THE CHANCE OF ANDREA VALENTINE NOT BEING ABLE TO KICK OUT ON TIME! JAEL RUSHES INSIDE THE RING AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BICYCLE KICK! LAYLA FALLS TO HER BACK AS SHE MANAGES TO ROLL HERSELF OUT OF THE RING! JAEL GOES RIGHT AFTER LAYLA! JAEL IS PROBABLY LOOKING TO GET LAYLA OUT OF THE EQUATION FOR THE TIME BEING! THE TWO WOMEN ARE TRADING SHOTS WITH ONE ANOTHER! LAYLA TRIES TO MAKE IT BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE, BUT JAEL DOES A FANTASTIC JOB WITH KNEEING LAYLA IN THE STOMACH! JAEL GRABS LAYLA BY HER ARM AS SHE LOOKS TO WHIP LAYLA AGAINST THE BARRICADE, BUT LAYLA COUNTERS AS SHE WHIPS JAEL AGAINST THE BARRICADE! JAEL GRASPS ON TO HER BACK AS SHE GOES FORWARD TO LAYLA, BUT LAYLA RUNS AND CONNECTS WITH THE BOTTLE ROCKET! THE SPEAR THAT TAKES DOWN JAEL!
Gavin Kirkland: Meanwhile inside the ring, Raven Roberts gets Andrea Valentine! Raven with The Facelift, but Andrea drops down and prevents that spinning heel kick from connecting! Andrea connects with a jawbreaker as that gets Raven to one knee! Andrea connects with a Valentine’s Massacre! The handstand modified headscissors driver to the former New Breed Champion! RAVEN ROBERTS IS PLANTED ON THE GROUND AS ANDREA GETS TO ONE KNEE AS SHE BEGINS TO GESTURE AT RAVEN TO GET HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET! ANDREA IS SLOWLY RISING BACK TO HER FEET AS RAVEN IS DOING THE SAME THING AS WELL! ANDREA RUNS AS SHE CONNECTS WITH LOVE HAZE! THE RUNNING CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER ON RAVEN ROBERTS! ANDREA GOES FOR THE COVER!
Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEE!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Roll With Me” plays through the speakers again as Andrea Valentine is on her knees. Raven Roberts rolls out of the ring to ringside. There, Jael is holding her stomach in pain while checking on Raven. Layla Lockhart meets Andrea inside the ring as the two women get their hands raised by the official.)
Maria Del Rey: The winners of this match, the team of Layla Lockhart and Andrea Valentine!
Gavin Kirkland: Andrea Valentine gets a victory in a holiday dedicated to her! We should all be worshipping the ground that she walks on! She managed to carry that bum Layla Lockhart to victory! I knew that Andrea would be able to get the job done! This was well-needed and hopefully, she will find herself in the title picture again!
CJ Hana: This was not the Crowe’s Nest’s night, Gavin! Raven Roberts seems like she has taking a different turn since losing the New Breed Championship, but she’ll find some sort of way to turn her luck around! Jael was fantastic in her own way and justified why she is an Empire Tag Team Champion! This was an amazing match!
(Commercial for an EAW Network special: Unfuckwithable: The SIenna Jade Story.)
(After the commercial the scene opens backstage as Layla Lockhart is walking while unwrapping her wrist tape. Walking around the corner, she bumps into Remi Skyfire who is heading toward the ring for the next match. Layla, who had only barely been paying attention, looks up, startled at first, then narrowing her eyes at the sight of her former ally. Before she can say anything, Remi holds a hand up cutting her off.)
Remi Skyfire: Look, Layla, I’ve got a match, and I don’t have time for your bullshit….
(Layla slams the wall, cutting Remi off.)
Layla Lockhart: MY BULLSHIT?! Remi, you’re the one who came at me when I thought we were friends, you’re the one who cut yourself off from all your friends, even your sister, and you’re the one who seems to have changed. If anything, I’m tired of your bullshit! Now, I’ve got to go, excuse me…
(Layla moves around Remi who shakes her head.)
Remi Skyfire: I’ve not changed, Layla, this is who I’ve always been. Just because you want everything to be sunshine and rainbows doesn’t-
(Layla smacks Remi across the jaw, knocking Skyfire back. Layla looks at her seething.)
Layla Lockhart: Just because I look on the bright side of things doesn’t mean I’m stupid, or a child, Remi. I know damn well what kind of world it is out there, I was just hoping you were different. Am I a bit naive? Maybe, sure, but I still don’t see how that’s a bad thing to want to see the best in people!
(A trickle of blood runs from Remi’s nostril as she glares at Layla. Finally after a moment Remi smirks and shakes her head.)
Remi Skyfire: Well, what do you know? Maybe the Pride done some good after all…
(Shaking her head and wiping away the blood, Remi turns to head to the entrance as Layla is shaking from her outburst.)
(Maria Del Rey is standing in the center of the ring.)
Maria Del Rey: The following contest is a tag match set for one fall! Introducing first, weighing in at a combined weight of 240 pounds, the Fatal Destiny!
(‘Rainmaker’ by Dillon Spears plays as Celes Dumont and Karina-Ann make their way to the ring.)
CJ Hana: The Fatal Destiny is determined to make their impact known here tonight, Gavin, I know you’re not the biggest fan of Celes, but she and Karina both have to be given credit for their never say die attitude, wouldn’t you agree?
Gavin Kirkland: I’ll give the two of them this; they don’t know when to quit, that’s for sure! Oh, I’ll give them this too, Karina’s got LEGS!
Maria Del Rey: Introducing their opponents, introducing first, weighing in at 155 pounds and hailing from Liverpool, England…The Deus Ex Machina, Sian Ryder!
(‘O Father O Satan O Sun’ by Behemoth (EAW edit) plays as Sian walks out onto the stage but doesn’t proceed, rather, she paces back and forth awaiting her partner.)
CJ Hana: Sound strategy here from Sian by not heading to the ring right away, the Fatal Destiny would certainly jump on the opportunity to gain an early advantage over the team that Remi has called Diabolus ex Machina!
Gavin Kirkland: Listen, CJ, I don’t care what tribe you’re from, no one wants to hear any French around here, so let’s keep it to English, alright?
CJ Hana: …
Maria Del Rey: Introducing her partner, weighing in at 150 pounds, hailing from Somerset, Kentucky, Remi Skyfire!
(‘Walk’ by Pantera plays as Remi Skyfire walks out onto the stage, rubbing her jaw. She walks up beside Sian, who gives her a nod, before heading down the ramp.)
CJ Hana: Remi Skyfire looks like she had a fight before her match tonight, there is a light trickle of blood from her left nostril. Despite the fact that both of the Fatal Destiny have spoken highly of Remi, the former Specialist Champion doesn’t seem impressed, especially with the comparisons between herself and Celes that Ms. Dumont spoke about!
Gavin Kirkland: You know what I’ve noticed?
CJ Hana: *Sigh*
Gavin Kirkland: There is a disproportionate number of lesbians on Empire. I mean, Look at these two! They shoulda called themselves the ‘Scissor Sisters’, and take a look at the dykish haircut on that waste of genetic material tagging with Karina…LESBIANS ALL OVER THE PLACE!
(As Remi and Sian enter the ring Maria exits and the official calls for the bell.)
(DING DING DING!)
CJ Hana: Looks like Sian and Celes are starting off the match…wait, what is this?
Celes Dumont: I want Remi!
(Sian looks over her shoulder at Remi Skyfire who shrugs and extends her hand to be tagged in. Shaking her head, Sian tags herself out.)
CJ Hana: Celes wanted Remi, and it looks like she’s got her! Remi enters the ring and begins quickly circling away from Celes while adopting a fighting stance. Dumont shoots in for the double leg takedown, but Remi is just fast enough to avoid her, and lands a kick to the side of Celes knee! Standing with a determined look on her face, Celes pulls up a boxers stance of her own and motions for Remi to bring it! In my opinion, this is a mistake from Celes, Remi is an accomplished striker, and gives even the best of Empire trouble in that department! Celes throws a cross that connects with Remi’s jaw, but it doesn’t slow Skyfire as she moves in close and lands an elbow across the bridge of Celes’ nose!
Gavin Kirkland: How could you miss that nose!? Skyfire continues to throw strikes with lightning efficiency, though, and drives her opponent back into the corner, allowing Karina ‘Legs’ Ann to enter the ring! Karina ducks a roundhouse from Remi, quickly moving behind her, and locking her arms around the waist of Skyfire! Remi tries to elbow her way out, but the Siren Assassin pops her hips beautifully and leaves Remi laying with a German Suplex! Remi rolls quickly to her feet, though, and gives Karina a menacing grin, her gum guard giving it a more sinister appearance than normal!
CJ Hana: Remi can take a lot of punishment, and while that German Suplex was beautifully done, it’s not gonna stop Remi! Skyfire moves in to striking range, but Karina grabs her arm and delivers an armdrag, then follows that with a dropkick, this time propeling Remi back into her corner! Sian tags in, eyes locked on Karina, and enters the ring as Remi exits. The Deus ex Machina steps up into the face of Karina who, to her credit, refuses to back down! A forearm from Karina catches Sian, but it doesn’t move Ryder! Sian whips Karina to the ropes…spinning wheel kick! Karinba is down! Ryder pulls Karina up by her hair and backs her into the corner, but the referee gets between them, calling for the break!
Gavin Kirkland: PERFECT! Karina goes for Sian’s eyes as the referee seperates them! That’s a fair strategy to take down someone much larger than you, either go for the eyes or the dick, and from the looks of Sian, she and dick isn’t even in the same zipcode…
CJ Hana: The absolute worst, you know that? Sian is reeling from the cheap shot from Karina who looks to quickly capitalize with a running head scissors! Sian is flipped inside out with that! Karin hits the ropes…legdrop! She moves for a pin, but Sian is out before the referee can get into position to count! Karina is looking to pull Ryder to her feet, but the larger woman pushes Karina away, forcing distance between the two…BIGFOOT! Sian stomps on the face of Karina! She moves quickly back to the corner and tags Remi in who enters the ring quickly and moves to block Karina off from her half of the ring! Skyfire is measuring Karina, back turned to Celes, as the Siren Assassin is gaining her feet….BACKSTABBER FROM CELES! Remi, who hasn’t had many tag matches in her career, lapsed a moment, and now Karina is making the pin!
Referee: ONE! TWO!
CJ Hana: Kickout from Remi! Skyfire looks angry now as she makes her way to her feet. Karina goes for a tieup, but Remi rolls under and tags Sian in! As Ryder enters the ring, Remi is eyeing Celes…REMI HITS A SPEAR TO CELES, CAUSING BOTH TO FALL OUTSIDE THE RING! An absolute brawl is going on outside the ring, but in the meantime Karina and Sian are in the ring, both legal! Collar and elbow tie up from the two, Sian clearly the stronger woman, but Karina is doing her best to hold the momentum…she whips Sian to the ropes…SUPERKICK! Sian is on the mat after that! Karina looks to capitalize and runs to the ropes for a springboard moonsault it looks like…NO! THE FEAR! Sian made it to her feet and caught Karina as she came down in that rear naked choke! It’s locked in tightly and in the center of the ring! The referee moves to check on Karina as Celes notices and tries to help, but Remi catches her foot and drags her out of the ring! THAT’S IT, KARINA IS OUT!
(DING DING DING!)
CJ Hana: Sian and Remi beat the Fatal Destiny!
(As ‘O Father O Satan O Sun’ by Behemoth (EAW edit) plays Remi and Celes are still brawling outside the ring! Sian releases Karina and watches are her partner and opponent fight up the entry ramp, each with handfuls of the others hair.)
(Commercial plays for EA Shop featuring an exclusive Andrea Valentine Pop Vinyl, use code: VALENTINE for 25% off for the next 24 hours!)
(Back from commercial and the scene opens into the office of Stephon Hunte, Network Representative from FOX. After a moment there is a knock on the door and Andrea Valentine walks in. Stephon shoots the blonde a menacing grin and leans back in his chair.Andrea, seemingly annoyed, crossed her arms over her chest.)
Andrea Valentine: Well? I’m here, Stephon, what do you want?
(Smile unwavering, Stephon doesn’t seem to flinch.)
Stephon Hunte: Ms. Valentine, I won’t bore you with the details, but FOX has decided that it wants you to be the centerpiece of the brand going forward! Isn’t that exciting?
(A confused look crosses Andrea’s face before she shakes her head in annoyance and rolls her eyes at Stephon’s comments.)
Andrea Valentine: Nevermind the fact that I’ll never work with you, that doesn’t even make sense! Sienna is the champion, she should be the focus of the show!
(Stephon, still seemingly unfazed, leans forward and starts looking through a manila folder.)
Stephon Hunte: See? That kind of humility is something that Fox feels like will resonate with the fans! You’ve got the complete package, Andrea, you’re blonde, beautiful, and photogenic as hell! Oh, and as far as working with me? Don’t worry about that, Andrea, I’m not the hands on type…at least not in that way. I’ll be bringing in a specialist to help you with becoming the perfect spokesperson for us!
(Seemingly not believing what Stephon is saying, Andrea leans forward on Stephon’s desk, seething.)
Andrea Valentine: Look, Stephon, I don’t give a shit about Fox, I don’t give a shit about being a representative for the network, and I certainly don’t give a shit about you or your ‘specialist’!
Stephon Hunte: What? Oh, you were talking, sorry, really Andrea, if you didn’t want people looking down your gear you really shouldn’t dress in it for meetings. I was too…distracted to hear you, but I get it, it’s a lot to take in all at once. She’ll be here next week, Andrea, here *He pulls a picture out of the folder on his desk of a blonde middle aged woman.* This is her, just take the folder, it’s full of her information.
(The Heart of Empire takes the folder and throws it in the trash can beside the door. Stephon sighs and finally his smile fades a bit.)
Stephon Hunte: Well, that was mature. I can’t wait to work with you, Andrea, but right now you need to behave like every other blonde bimbo I entertain for a few minutes…leave me alone so I can get some work done.
(Incensed, Andrea jerks the door to the office open and starts to storm out as Stephon stops her by clearing his throat.)
Stephon Hunte: Oh, Andrea…? Happy Valentine’s Day!
(Stephon smirks as Andrea slams the door.)
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(The arena goes dark as the sound of “Big Bad Wolf” by In This Moment plays. Minerva enters the stage and kneels, her hood covering her face and a gypsy chain in her hand. She looks around at the crowd that either boo or cheer her, before smiling and proceeding down the ramp.)
Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM COYOTE FLATS, TEXAS…WEIGHING IN AT 125 POUNDS…SHE IS ‘THE GYPSY MOTH’ MINERVAAAAAAA!!!!
(Minerva gives a wink before she hops onto the apron, hanging upside down on the ropes for a moment as the crowd continues to boo.)
CJ Hana: Look at the eyes of Minerva! Last week on Empire, she was blindsided by Mali Evans in her match against Jael, and tonight, she has a chance to get some payback!
Gavin Kirkland: Meh, she honestly deserves it! I mean look at her, she’s practically glowing from how pale she is! Wasn’t Twitter going off about how Eugenia Cooney had gone missing for a few days? I think we’ve found her, and she’s standing in the ring right now!
CJ Hana:..would it ever kill you to say something nice about someone?
(“Big Bad Wolf” fades out, and is replaced by “The Enemy” by the Commonjets. Mali Evans stands atop the ramp, wearing a scowl on her face. She marches down to the ring, her eyes focused on Minerva.)
Marina Del Rey: AND HER OPPONENT…FROM BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND…WEIGHING IN AT 175 POUNDS…’THE SUPLEX QUEEN’ MALIIIIIIIIIII EVANSSSSSSS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Look, all I’m saying is that I don’t blame Mali for her actions last week. An eye for an eye and all that. She came back from injury—mind you, she was on the verge of winning her returning match—and Minerva cheated her way to victory!
CJ Hana: Uh, weren’t you completely dismissing Mali the last time these two squared off?
Gavin Kirkland: Yes, and I changed my mind! That gothic Tarah Nova lookalike was scared of a fucking eighteen year old! That’s why she had no choice but to cheat. Makes me sick!
(“The Enemy” dies down as Mali Evans enters the ring, her eyes never breaking contact with Minerva’s. The referee checks with both competitors to make sure they’re ready and signals for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
CJ Hana: Mali Evans isn’t even hesitating! She’s unloading punch after punch into the face of Minerva! ‘The Gypsy Moth’ is looking a bit rocked right now as Mali winds up…A WICKED LARIAT! MINERVA IS UP AND MALI STRIKES WITH ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER, I DON’T THINK MINERVA IS GETTING UP FROM THAT! Minerva is down to one knee as Mali takes a moment to catch her breath…SUPERKICK TO THE CHIN OF MINERVA! THAT ONE DROPS HER FOR GOOD!
Gavin Kirkland: Mali glares at the grounded Minerva with a fire raging in her eyes! I think the crowd is asking for Mali to do what she does best! Mali picks Minerva up…GERMAN SUPLEX! She doesn’t let go as she delivers yet ANOTHER GERMAN! Once more Mali picks her up, stalls Minerva in the air for a while…BEAUTIFUL DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX! Impressive strength from the eighteen year old, she’s practically ragdolling Minerva around at this point!
CJ Hana: Not so fast, though! Minerva is up to her feet again, showing some form of life in this match still! She lands a few gut punches on Mali, but it’s not enough to knock the ‘Suplex Queen’ down! Minerva looks to slow the match down with a headlock: she’s really cranking that neck, but Mali won’t be worn down so easily! Minerva notices Mali trying to escape the hold and delivers some NASTY elbows to the back of Mali Evan’s skull! This is Minerva’s chance to break through! She releases the headlock and charges to the ropes…LOU THESZ PRESS! MINERVA ON TOP OF MALI NOW AND HERE COMES A RAIN OF CLOSED FIST PUNCHES!
Gavin Kirkland: On second thought, I think this match just got kinda hot! You know, ‘gothic hospital’ is one of my go-to search terms on—WAIT! It looks like Minerva is bringing Mali up to her feet this time, she has her up for what looks like a fisherman suplex…SEEDS OF EVIL! SHE GOT ALL OF IT! MINERVA GOES FOR THE COVER…
CJ Hana: KICK-OUT!!! Mali Evans is not giving up just yet! Both competitors are up, and Mali plants Minerva with a dropkick! This could be the opening she needs, and the crowds is solidly behind her! Mali is calling for it, she eyes Minerva down as the ‘Gypsy Moth’ gets to her feet! Mali locks it in…SNAP SUPLEX!!! SHE CONTINUES TO HOLD MINERVA IN POSITION AND GETS UP FOR…….THE MALI DRIVER II!!! THE FALCON ARROW CONNECTS!! MALI NOW GOING FOR THE PIN…
Gavin Kirkland: KICK-OUT!!! MINERVA MANAGES TO LIFT THE SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE! MALI IS IN COMPLETE DISBELIEF AS—HOLD ON!!! MINERVA SOMEHOW ABLE TO FLIP OFF THE CANVAS AND CRAWLS ON MALI’S BACK! SHE LOOKS TO HAVE MALI IN POSITION FOR THE BRIDGING DOUBLE CHICKEN WING…OWL OF MINERVA!! THE OWL OF MINERVA IS LOCKED IN, CENTER OF THE RING!! MALI HAS NOWHERE ELSE TO GO!!! SHE TAPS!!! THIS ONE IS OVER!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Maria Del Rey: THE WINNER VIA SUBMISSION…’THE GYPSY MOTH’ MINERVAAAAAAAAAA!!!
(“Big Bad Wolf” by In This Moment plays again, and the referee raises Minerva’s hand up in victory. She licks her lips as she watches Mali struggle on the ground, laughing at the young blonde.)
CJ Hana: What an incredible victory for Minerva here tonight! I must hand it to Mali Evans though, for her to have complete control at the start of the match like that was truly impressive. Minerva, though, was able to pull through and get the win and show why you should never interfere in her affairs!
Gavin Kirkland: Wow, her first clean victory. Like, does she want a cookie or something? Eh, she probably won’t even eat it anyways. But congratulations to her anyway. There CJ, I said something nice. You happy?
CJ Hana: I’m ecstatic, Gavin. More action coming your way as Empire returns LIVE!
(Commercial plays for Icy Hot, featuring Raven Roberts and Rex McAllister. Icy to dull the pain. Hot to relax it away.)
(Cleopatra is standing with Kathy Kush in the backstage interview area. Dressed in street clothes, the former Vixen’s Champion looks impatiently at Kathy as she smiles into the camera.)
Kathy Kush: Joining me now is one of the newest members of the 1% and the former EAW Vixen’s Champion, Cleopatra! Cleo, this past week you, along with the rest of the Court, joined the 1%, what motivated that?
Cleopatra: It’s simple, if you’re not an idiot. It’s the same reason Amber and I backed up Madison all those months ago: They appreciate us. It’s really as simple as that, and if those Score idiots aren’t careful they’re going to end up hurt bad, because ask Andrea, or Raven, or even Cloud or anyone else we’ve faced. We hurt people, bad.
(Kathy takes a half step away from Cleopatra, who notices and smirks.)
Kathy Kush: Well, last week on Empire you defeated Tyler Wolfe, and you’ve beaten Kassidy Heart before that, some people have noticed a pattern, is there anything to read into there?
Cleopatra: Anything to read into? You’re a moron, aren’t you? Look, I’ll speak slowly, so keep up. I hold victories over the entirety of the Jaded Bitches, all but the big one, Sienna fucking Jade. I’ve had my sights set on her empty head for a while now, and lo and behold, now she has the Unified Women’s title? Damn, it’s like Christmas for ole Cleo!
Kathy Kush: Just to be clear, you’re, right now, challenging the Unified Women’s World CHampion, Sienna Jade, to defend her title against you?
(Cleopatra stares at Kathy in disbelief.)
Cleopatra: Yes, Kathy, I’m challenging Sienna Jade. For her title. Everyone is running around here acting like Sienna shits gold, ‘Oh, she won a title back that she shouldn’t have lost in the first place.’ No, morons, she didn’t. Just like me, Sienna was never the Women’s World Champion, she was the REVOLT! Freeweight champion, it’s not the same title. This is her first reign, and she won it in a match she should have never been in against the greatest Women’s Champion this company has had in Madison Kaline. Don’t worry, though, Sienna, I know what it takes to be a great champion, and I’m more than willing to show you, unless your candy ass is too afraid to face me.
Kathy Kush: Well, there you have it, Cleopatra has laid the gauntlet down! Is there anything else you’d like to say before we go?
(Cleopatra gives Kathy a disgusted look and walks off set. Kathy watches her walk away for a moment before turning back to the camera.)
Kathy Kush: Thank you for joining me tonight, now for a word from our sponsors!
(Commercial break for cupcakes featuring Noah Reigner. Don’t get mini chocolate ones whatever you do!)
(Empire returns and cuts to the ring. “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen begins to play and purple and white smoke begins to fill the arena. Two rather beefy looking men walk out onto the stage and between them, they’re carrying a covered chair of sorts. They begin to move down the ramp, heading straight for the announce table. A few seconds pass and The Visual Prophet, New Breed Championship strapped securely around his waist, appears on the stage with Veena Adams at his side. The two survey their surroundings and smirk at the reaction they are getting, and begin to walk down to the ring.)
CJ Hana: So they really did show up, after all. Veena said on Voltage this past Sunday that she and the New Breed Champion would be watching this match.
Gavin Kirkland: You know, Veena Adams is something else. I never thought I would be the one to have a neck brace fetish… but the visual of Veena wearing that and nothing els-
CJ Hana: You should probably watch what you say about the niece of our chairman.
Gavin Kirkland: Yeah, fair enough.
(The Visual Prophet and Veena get inside the ring, Veena making a big show of holding her neck while climbing through the ropes. Maria Del Rey is in the ring and Veena signals for the microphone once she’s standing in the center. Viz’s theme music fades out and the crowd really unleashes on the Voltage pair. The Empire faithful don’t care for Viz and Veena whatsoever, and Veena can’t help but roll her eyes.)
Veena Adams: I should have expected a group of virgin neckbeards from Virginia to act like this. Completely disrespectful and out of line towards your New Breed Sovereign and wrestling royalty like myself. You know, it’s bad enough that The Visual Prophet and myself had to lower ourselves and come to Empire tonight, but to do so in Virginia? That’s such a big yikes.
(The jeering crowd gets even louder.)
Veena Adams: I CAN RAISE MY VOICE IF YOU’D LIKE!!!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
(Veena looks at Viz and rolls her eyes.)
Veena Adams: Ugh, whatever. You know, last week Kendra Shamez mentioned something about giving the Empire roster the opportunity to show the entire world what they’re made of. Now I’m not entirely sure what that dumb bitch means by that, but it got me thinking. Empire prides itself on being the best and most competitive brand in all of Elite Answers Wrestling. We are women, hear us roar, blah blah blah. Apparently this show is supposed to be just as good as Dynasty, Showdown, and Voltage. I honestly have no idea how that’s even remotely possible because literally no one wants to watch women’s wrestling in 2019. They especially don’t want to watch Empire, because lets be honest. None of these cunts even remotely have talent. Most of them got their job because they’re easy on the eyes and can deepthroat a cock. It’s not like any of them are actually good at what they’re doing inside the ring, and that was made abundantly clear at King of Elite when precious wittle Waven Woberts got her ass handed to her by three men, and a trailer park troll. We all saw Viz dominate that match and walk away with the New Breed Championship.
That belt is finally back on Voltage where it belongs.
The fact that Empire is getting the first shot at this championship is absolutely ridiculous. These bitches have more than proven they don’t have what it takes to compete with the kings of this company. How many times do we have to watch some errant little slut try and take on a man, and ultimately succumb to him? Quite frankly that’s totally boring. There’s a reason EAW separates the women and men. It’s because women’s wrestling in 2019 is at an all time low. These so-called women have no fucking clue how to wrestle. They shit the bed every single time they’re inside the ring. They’re jokes… actual laughing stocks, and it seriously blows my fucking mind that they think they can compete against everyone else in this company. Empire was made because no one gave a fuck about the girls except 40-year old perverts and lesbos, and EAW has some stupid policy about being all inclusive. I’ll never get it and it honestly annoys me that I used to be an Empire Elitist.
That being said, I have decided that come next week, The Visual Prophet will grace the Empire ring with his presence. We are issuing a challenge to any little whore in the back who wants to act like she has a dick and step up to the plate. If women can go to other brands and wrestle, then men should be allowed to come to Empire and show the world exactly why we have separate brands. That’s going to be on display at the Iconic Cup regardless, but we might as well start putting all these skunts out of their misery now. Honestly, neither Viz nor myself give one iota of a fuck about who steps up. Whatever cunt decides to get inside the ring with Viz, the match is going to end the same way.
(Veena holds the microphone out to Viz. He lowers his sunglasses and smirks.)
The Visual Prophet: I will make my opponent say my name.
(Veena beams up at The New Breed Sovereign and drops the microphone. Empire fades to its final commercial break of the night.)
(Commercial break featuring Karina-Ann promoting Bath and Body Works. She’s rubbing Sheer Freesia scented body lotion on her arms. The voiceover was going to list the various scents that make up Sheer Freesia but it’s a lot, and nobody has time for that.)
(Empire returns and cuts to Maria Del Rey inside the ring.)
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Maria Del Rey: AND IT WILL DETERMINE THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(The cameras cut to The Visual Prophet who’s taken a seat at ringside in a purple velvet throne trimmed in gold; the covered mystery chair! Veena has joined CJ and Gavin at the broadcast table.)
(‘Voices’ by Motionless In White hits the PA system and a few seconds later, Harlow Reichert emerges from behind the guerilla curtain.)
Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND… WEIGHING IN AT 155 POUNDS… SHE’S MISS NO FUCKS GIVEN… HARLOW REICHERT!!!
Veena Adams: Look at this disrespectful cunt. Bad dye job, shitty gear. Extra junk in her trunk. Looks exactly like the type of person Xavier Williams would invest in. Trash. Trash. Trash.
CJ Hana (ignoring the female embodiment of Satan sitting beside her): Harlow has been a roll since returning from an injury she sustained a few months ago on Battleground. She continues to improve by leaps and bounds, and gain more confidence with every match.
Gavin Kirkland: Huh… I never noticed. She does have quite the ass on her. I bet Jax Walker has a hell of a time tearing her shit up on the regular.
(Harlow plays to the crowd just a little bit before sliding inside the ring and taking a corner. She gets herself warmed up while her theme music fades out and is replaced Katy Perry’s song, “Roar”. Constance Blevins bursts through the curtain following the loud sound of the Lioness roar [which leads into the chorus of “Roar”].)
Maria Del Rey: AND INTRODUCING HER OPPONENTS!!! COMING OUT FIRST… FROM BALTIMORE, MARYLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 120 POUNDS… SHE IS THE LIONESS… CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!!
(Constance raises her arms parallel with her index fingers pointing upward to the heavens. Constance smiles, then blows a kiss upward as well before starting her journey to the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: Didn’t Minerva wrestle earlier tonight?
CJ Hana: … Constance Blevins and Minerva are two totally different people.
Veena Adams: Are they though? I see black hair, pale skin, and complete mediocrity with both of them. Might as well be the same person. They both fucking suck.
CJ Hana: Constance Blevins does not suck. In fact, she’s one of Empire’s bright, young stars. The sky’s the limit for Constance and she has the power of God on her side.
Veena Adams: Oh spare me. Uncle Ryan probably doesn’t even know who the fuck this cingey bitch is and he’s the only god we acknowledge. After all, he’s the reason all you ungrateful people have jobs.
(Constance makes her way to the ring, slapping hands with the fans along the way. She enters the ring, nods her head at Harlow, and takes her corner. Constance’s theme fades out and is replaced shortly thereafter with “I Smell A Massacre” by The Butcher Babies. A few seconds later, Tyler Wolfe walks out on stage.)
Maria Del Rey: AND THEIR OPPONENT… FROM SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA… WEIGHING IN AT 153 POUNDS… SHE IS THE WALKING WEAPON… TYLER WOLFE!!!!
Veena Adams: That’s a big yikes…
Gavin Kirkland: Nah. We stan Tyler Wolfe because she’s thicc and blonde.
Veena Adams: We really don’t. This cunt is the worst example of a woman I have ever seen in my life. Imagine thinking you’re a feminist in 2019. Imagine pretending to support women, while you secretly wish you had a dick of your own to suck. That’s Tyler Wolfe summed up in the only two sentences she deserves, and she is fucking disgusting.
CJ Hana (sighing): This is going to be a long ass match to call.
(Tyler gets inside the ring and takes a deep breath. Harlow and Constance are both staring at her, their game faces firmly in place. Tyler gets herself set for this match and her theme music fades out. The official looks at all three women and calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
CJ Hana: Well here we go! Tyler, Harlow, and Constance are circling one another. These three women know the stakes tonight. With The Visual Prophet sitting there on his throne…
(The camera cuts to a shot of Viz sitting on this throne again. He’s looking at the ring, very uninterested, and his New Breed Championship is in his lap.)
Veena Adams: Nothing but the best for our New Breed Sovereign.
CJ Hana: Tyler and Harlow look at one another and both turn their attention to Constance. Constance looks at Harlow. HARLOW AND CONSTANCE WITH SIMULTANEOUS DROPKICKS TO TYLER WOLFE!!! The Walking Weapon falls back against the ropes and Harlow and Constance start working the double team! Harlow is stomping away on Tyler, while Constance is throwing punches to Tyler’s face and head!!! Tyler finally forces herself up and fights through the onslaught from Harlow and Constance. She catches Harlow in the gut with a boot, and lunges forward, hitting Constance in the face with a forearm. Constance fires back with a stiff right hand and Harlow comes back, clipping Tyler in the back of the knee. Tyler drops down to the mat and Harlow picks her up! Tyler eats a huge European uppercut to the face. Constance catches Tyler in the gut. Constance she grabs Tyler and runs forward, taking the former Specialists Champion down with a running bulldog!!
Veena Adams: I mean honestly, anyone can do that. Constance won’t have enough speed or power to keep Vizzy down with that if her false fucking deity blesses her with a victory tonight. *Veena starts giggling* :wow: I can’t even say that and keep a straight face.
Gavin Kirkland: Constance goes for a quick cover on Tyler, but Harlow is right behind her, jerking her up, and tossing her backwards with a German suplex!!! Harlow keeps hold of Constance and goes for a second one, executing it perfectly. She hangs on, looking for a third, but Tyler is back up to her feet. Tyler catches Harlow in the stomach and Harlow drops down. Constance crashes as well and Tyler jumps on top of Harlow, throwing straight punches to the face!!!
Veena Adams: I guess that’s one good thing Tyler can use all that extra weight for. Between her and Harlow I’m shocked this ring hasn’t broken yet. They’re both so fat for women wrestlers.
Gavin Kirkland: More cushin’ for the pushin’!!
Veena Adams: Noah and Jax must really be into BBW stuff. Ick.
CJ Hana: Constance is back up and she grabs Tyler by the hair, slamming the back of Tyler’s head into the mat. Constance drops down and begins wailing away on Tyler, and that gives Harlow time to recover and get back to her feet. She grabs Constance by the hair and looks for a side headlock, but Constance fights out of it and both women lock up. They jockey back and forth for position, before Harlow uses her size advantage to force Constance back into the corner. Harlow begins driving her shoulder into Constance’s midsection. Harlow grabs Constance by the hair and drags her to the center of the ring but before she can do anything, Tyler grabs Harlow from behind! She slams Harlow to the mat with a side suplex and locks the redhead into a front facelock. Harlow fights her way out of the facelock, grabs Tyler in a bodyscissors, and looks to wrap Tyler up in a choke. Constance comes flying in, taking Harlow out with a foot to the face! Constance grabs Tyler, but Tyler is able to bring Constance down and turn that into a crucifix style pin!!!
Veena Adams: Constance ironically gets herself out of a crucifix. Too bad good ole Jesus couldn’t do the same…
Gavin Kirkland: I wonder if Constance is religious in every aspect?
Veena Adams: Well if she were, she would be married right now and serving her husband just like a good, obedient girl would. After all, Eve was apparently made from Adam’s rib, to spread her legs for him and be a cum receptacle.
(CJ Hana is honestly speechless.)
Gavin Kirkland: Conerva is pulled back to her feet by Tyler and thrown into the corner! Tyler looks to run towards her, BUT BIG BOOTY HARLOW WITH THE ROLL UP FROM BEHIND!!!
CJ Hana: Tyler powers out and Harlow slams her knee into Tyler’s face!!! Harlow turns her attention towards Constance!!! Constance pushes her way out of the corner!!! Harlow flies forward with a clothesline! Constance ducks and follows up with a roundhouse kick to Harlow’s chest! Harlow staggers back!!! TYLER FROM BEHIND ON HARLOW!!! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! HARLOW ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND HITS THE FLOOR!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Tyler and Constance lock up now, and this is a total mismatch! Tyler easily powers Constance into the corner. She drives her knee repeatedly into Constance’s midsection and begins striking her all over! Constance covers up but there are no rules. That’s not going to help her. Tyler grabs a hold of the ropes and places her foot under Constance’s chin. She’s choking her now with her foot, and honestly that’s kind of hot. I love choking and it’s always been a fantasy to have a woman kiss my kingly foot. CONSTANCE… STICK YOUR TONGUE OUT!!!! USE IT TO TOUCH TYLER’S BOOT!!!!
Veena Adams: Tyler releases the choke, although I find that pretty stupid. She could have just choked this Jesus slut out and put all of us out of our misery.
CJ Hana: Tyler grabs Constance and hits her with a European style uppercut. She drags her over to the ropes and drapes Constance across them throat first. Tyler backs up and runs forward!!! She leaps and lands right on Constance’s back with both knees. Constance’s throat snaps against those ropes and Tyler pulls Constance out of the ropes and covers her.
Gavin Kirkland: THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS CONSTANCE TO KEEP GOING!!!!
Veena Adams: I wish someone would have made this a shotgun on a pole match as opposed to a New Breed Contendership match. This is so stupid. I hate women.
CJ Hana: Tyler pulls Constance back up and whips her across the ring. Constance comes flying back, and Tyler takes The Lioness down with a drop toehold. She immediately pounces, grabbing Constance by the hair and locking her into a camel clutch submission!!! Is Constance going to tap?
Veena Kirkland: Well she’s supposed to be submissive.
Gavin Kirkland: Goals.
CJ Hana: HARLOW REICHERT JUST TOOK OUT TYLER WOLFE WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!
Veena Adams: Yawn.
CJ Hana: HARLOW IS STOMPING AWAY ON TYLER WOLFE NOW!!! MISS NO FUCKS GIVEN PULLS TYLER UP BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HER OUT OF THE RING!!! SHE FOLLOWS HER OUT AND THE TWO ARE FIGHTING ON THE OUTSIDE. TYLER PULLS HERSELF UP AND NAILS HARLOW IN THE STOMACH WITH A RIGHT HAND!!! HARLOW DOUBLES OVER AND TYLER GETS UP AND BEGINS BEATING DOWN HARLOW. HARLOW DROPS TO A KNEE AND TYLER IS RELENTLESS RIGHT NOW!!! SHE GRABS HARLOW BY THE HAIR AND ATTEMPTS TO THROW HER INTO THE BARRICADE!!! HARLOW STOPS HER THOUGH!!! HARLOW RAKES TYLER ACROSS THE FACE AND SHOVES HER TO THE GROUND!!! TYLER LANDS AGAINST THE STEEL RINGSTEPS!!! HARLOW BACKS UP AND RUSHES TOWARDS TYLER!!! KNEE TO THE FACE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!!! TYLER MOVES!!! HARLOW’S KNEE SLAMS INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS!!!
Veena Adams: I hope Jax didn’t want Harlow on her knees later.
CJ Hana: Tyler is working on that knee now and Harlow is in a lot of pain. It’s written all over her face. Tyler grabs Harlow by the leg and slams that knee right into the ground. Tyler jerks Harlow up by the hair an-
Gavin Kirkland: CONSTANCE IS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!!
CJ Hana: CONSTANCE JUST LAUNCHED HERSELF OFF THE TURNBUCKLES!!! FLYING CROSSBODY AND SHE TAKES DOWN TYLER AND HARLOW!!! CONSTANCE JUST TOOK A HUGE RISK AND IT PAID OFF!!!! CONSTANCE GETS UP AND SHE GRABS TYLER!! SHE BOUNCES TYLER’S FACE OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING!!! SHE TAKES TYLER AND THROWS HER INTO THE STEPS!!! CONSTANCE SHOWING SOME AGGRESSION HERE!!!
Veena Adams: If only Jesus had this much fight when they nailed him to the cross. Instead he was a pussy about it.
Gavin Kirkland: You know, I never thought about it like that.
Veena Adams: Like if someone tried to put a nail through my perfect hand I would have at least kicked them. I wouldn’t sit there and hang like a bitch.
CJ Hana: Constance throws Tyler back into the ring and sizes her up! The Lioness waits for Tyler to get back to her feet and she attacks!!! Constance takes Tyler down with a swinging neckbreaker and covers the Australian!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! TYLER JUST RAISED HER SHOULDER LIKE JESUS DID ON PASSOVER!!!
CJ Hana: That is not what Passover is…
Veena Adams: Isn’t it all the same shit?

To walk into a championship match just to get humiliated? These fucking skanks don’t know who the fuck they’re going to be facing at the Iconic Cup. The Visual Prophet is the New Breed SOVEREIGN. He is the FUTURE of Elite Answers Wrestling. These sex toys can get fucked. None of them have a chance in hell at defeating Vizzy.

HARLOW TAKES HER SHOULDER AND DRIVES IT INTO TYLER’S STOMACH! SHE FORCES TYLER BACK INTO THE CORNER AND STARTS KICKING HER IN THE CHEST!!!!

CJ Hana: SHE DID IT! TYLER WOLFE DID IT!! SHE’S GOING TO THE ICONIC CUP TO FACE THE VISUAL PROPHET FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“I Smell A Massacre” by The Butcher Babies starts blasting throughout the arena. Tyler rolls off of Harlow, too exhausted to even stand up. Veena Adams has removed her headset and has made her way over to The Visual Prophet. She’s whispering in Viz’s ear, and he has not taken his eyes off of the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: Jesus Christ. What a massacre that ended up being.
CJ Hana: Wow… I honestly don’t even know what to say.
(Tyler FINALLY gets to her feet after resting for a few minutes and allows the official to raise her hand. She is battered, covered in her blood as well as the blood of the two warrior queens she went to battle with tonight, and exhausted. But there’s something in Tyler’s blue eyes that at the moment humanizes her to the sold out crowd inside the Hampton Coliseum. They’re filled pure, raw emotion. Tyler places her hands on her knees and finally locks eyes with Viz. He holds his championship to his chest while Veena looks on, disgust written all across her face.)
