(The show begins with a single man sitting in an empty Medieval banquet hall dressed in chain mail and armor wearing a crown. The man’s head is obscured from view as he twirls a sword’s tip against the stone floor.)
Ever since the beginning of time, mankind has engaged in near-constant struggle. OtheBe it land, riches, food or religion, people have always had reasons to fight. Some were bred to fight, merciless and disciplined like the Spartan. Others, like the knight and the Samurai, were trained to fulfil that role. Even now, some warriors remain that exhibit the essence of fighting spirit: unflinching courage, unwavering resolve, and burning passion…..
For the past two years, a brave few warriors have gone above and beyond to find if they have these traits in themselves in the wrestling ring. Men and women have put themselves to the hazard in search of glory, honor, and retribution. Those who succeed in proving their fighting spirit become the stuff of legend, revered and deified for all of time.
(In a clip from the very first Fighting Spirit in the Seibu Dome, Diamond Cage is shown getting his hand raised and clasping onto the EAW Championship after his successful title defense.)

(In another clip, Mr. DEDEDE is shown clutching his Answers World Championship after besting Liam Catterson.)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner… AND STILLLLL THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… MR. DDDDDEEEEE! DDDDDEEEEE! DDDDDEEEEE!!!
Alliances have been forged and broken. Kings have ascended and been made humble. Warriors have found the strength of will to survive when most normal men and women would flee. Tonight, near the shores of the River Thames, they have come to do battle again.
(A flood of images featuring the competitors of various matches scheduled show on screen before slowing down considerably.)

Warriors will not be bound to gender either. Only skill and brute force can forge the path….
(The history between Aria and Ahren Fournier is shown, including Ahren’s Hardcore championship victory, Aria’s Young Lions Cup win and celebration and Ahren’s brutal attack on an episode of Voltage.)
And in the end…the strongest of them will stand above and rule as Champion, the epitome of Fighting Spirit.
(Clips of Drastik’s EAW Championship victory are shown before giving a quick look at his long war with Eclipse Deimos.)
(The clips end and the screen is dark. There is no music playing, no one is speaking. Only the sound of a sword’s tip twirling against the cold stone floor can be heard. The picture returns to the banquet hall where Drastik, sitting on a throne in full armor and holding a sword can be seen as the voice over continues.)
Tonight, for the third time, the best and brightest that Voltage has to offer have gathered to find out who truly has Fighting Spirit. When the smoke has cleared and the last blade has been sheathed, we will know who are the true warriors and who are the pretenders. Welcome…..and prepare for combat.
(Drastik rises from his seat on the throne, slashing at the camera with his sword as the scene fades to black.)
(“Know My Name” by Derek Lewars ft Dumi Maraire & Edward Scott Bleming starts to play in the background as we now fade into the O2 Arena in London, England where sold out crowd is on their feet in excitement, shouting at the top of their lungs and waving around their signs while the camera does a pan around, switching over to the pyrotechnics blasting on the stage. As the fireworks cease, we transition to the commentary table where WWEFan and Kawajai are sat.)
WWEFan: HELLO EVERYBODY AND WELCOME TO THE FINAL FREE PER VIEW BEFORE PAIN FOR PRIDE X; WELCOME TO FIGHTING SPIRIT! WE ARE LIVE FROM THE SOLD OUT O2 ARENA IN LONDON, ENGLAND! WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS NIGHT FOR WEEKS AND IT’S FINALLY HERE!
Kawajai: The Voltage roster has been on edge, anticipating this night! There is so much going on this evening: Drastik vs Eclipse Diemos 2 for the EAW Championship! The rematch that I personally have been looking forward to since Grand Rampage! Voltage has been chaotic since these two have crossed paths and now finally it is going down, and from what HRDO has said, he will be there at ringside watching!
WWEFan: HRDO’s influence will definitely be felt on this show as Sanitorium brothers, Maero and Solomon Caine face off in a match that will be No DQ on his orders! And let’s not forget about some of the other great matches! Nasir Moore and Aren Mstislav team up once again to take on the People With Class! Zack Crash and Carson Ramsay face off! Keelan vs Terry Chambers! ONI vs Marco as well, and who can forget Ahren Fournier vs Aria Jaxon for the Hardcore Championship!
Kawajai: That’s a match I REALLY have to see and it looks like we won’t need to wait anymore! Let’s do it now! Ring announcer, take it away!
(The camera swings on over to ringside where the ring announcer is awaiting his cue for the upcoming match.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall…and is for….THE EAW HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“Formation” by Beyonce plays to a huge pop from the crowd as Aria Jaxon steps out onto the stage sporting a newly designed blue and gold half jacket. She looks around the arena, admiring the sold out crowd on her side as she continues to walk down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 116 pounds….she is “The Queen of The New Guard”……ARRRRIIIIIIAAAAA JAAAAXXXXONNNNN!!!
WWEFan: Here she is, the Vixen who has earned the reputation as The First Lady of Voltage. Aria Jaxon shocked the world last month when she went ahead and called out Ahren Fournier for his Hardcore Championship. She is entering a hardcore match at a one hundred four pound disadvantage and yet she, and the fans, are not worried at all! What Aria Jaxon lacks in size she more than makes up for in heart and pure skill. It is at this very event last year that she competed against the likes of Y2Impact and Drake and Jones with no issue at all. Who can forget her curb stomping Imp? She is very much at home in this kind of environment and there is no doubt that she will look to top her previous performances against Elitists.
(“Little Violence” by Waterparks plays as Ahren Fournier steps out onto the stage, sporting a “Trill Fairy” t-shirt and tattered jeans instead of his usual in ring attire. He has the Hardcore title slung over his shoulder and is looking at Aria Jaxon, mocking her from afar.)
Ring Announcer: And her opponent, the Champion, coming to the ring from Planet Fournier, weighing in at 220 pounds….he is the EAW Hardcore Champion: “The Crown Jewel”……AHRREEEENNN FOURNIERRRRR!!
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier is not dressed for a wrestling match this time around! Ahren Fournier is dressed more comfortably, more for a fight! For months Ahren Fournier has labeled himself as things like the King of Hardcore, our forever Hardcore Champion, titles that deem him as unstoppable, and so far they have looked valid. That is, until Aria Jaxon called him out. Aria Jaxon is looking to take away everything he has built, to expose him as overly confident and that is something Ahren won’t stand for. The way he sees it, she has some nerve to challenge him, she shouldn’t even be here and he is currently entering this match with the mindset of putting her in her place. That will be a tall order though.
(The two get settled in the ring as Ahren Fournier gives one final kiss goodbye to the Hardcore title before handing it off and the referee ringing the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: The bell has rung as Ahren Fournier steps out of the corner and stands in front of Aria Jaxon, putting up his hand as he smugly is offering it for a handshake! Aria Jaxon can barely even believe it as Ahren is still putting up that hand, clearly trying to be patronizing here as Aria kicks that hand away! Ahren Fournier is taken by surprise but comes back and winds that hand back for a punch, she ducks it and then this time delivers a kick to the gut! Ahren Fournier is momentarily hunched over as Aria Jaxon goes to hit the ropes! As she rebounds Ahren Fournier moves out of the way to allow her to go off of the ropes on the other side, sending her right into a rolling elbow to the jaw! Aria Jaxon falls back into the ropes and then winds up in the arms of Ahren Fournier who lifts her up and then BODY SLAMS her onto the canvas! Ahren Fournier now takes his boot, and digs it against the forehead of Aria Jaxon, trying to punish Aria, applying force now with that boot to the head! Aria Jaxon is taking her hands and trying to pry him off but the weight of Ahren is making it difficult! Ahren Fournier FINALLY steps off of her but immediately turns back to her, waiting for her to get up so he can go for his next move!
Kawajai: This has not been a good start for Aria so far, Ahren Fournier is chomping at the bit, ready to run off as he mows her down with a shoulder tackle! Ahren Fournier is not done yet either, he now leans in and picks her up, looking to go for a suplex — but wait! Aria Jaxon floats over and lands on her feet! REVERSE DDT BY ARIA! Ahren Fournier shoots up, holding his neck as Aria Jaxon is rising to her feet with him! Forearm to the face! Another forearm! Ahren Fournier pushes her away in desperation but she just comes back around! Ahren charges at her as Aria Jaxon side steps him and catches him with an enzuigiri to the back of the head which sends him falling forward! Ahren Fournier lands on all fours as Aria Jaxon stands in front of him AND NAILS HIM STRAIGHT UP WITH A DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE FACE! Ahren falls back as he is covering up his face, leaving his upper body open as Aria Jaxon runs up and springboards from the middle rope, LOOKING FOR A MOONSAULT!
WWEFan: Oh, but Ahren Fournier puts a stop to that as he rolls out of the ring to avoid it! Aria Jaxon lands on her feet as the crowd is letting our Hardcore Champion hear it for his retreat! Aria Jaxon will not let him hide though, she preps herself and then gets ready to take off as she runs off for momentum and then goes to dart toward Ahren Fournier! Aria shooting out of the ropes for a SUICIDE DIVE! But wait! Ahren Fournier moves out of the way AGAIN! Aria Jaxon telegraphs it though, she holds onto the ropes and then swings onto the apron! She switches around and then jumps off to the side, catching Ahren Fournier with that moonsault she was aiming for before! Down goes Ahren as Aria is now on top of him, throwing heavy rights his way!
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier manages to knock her off of him as he now heads toward the ring tarp to help pull himself up, Aria though stays on him as she crawls over and then lunges toward him for a chop block to the back of the knee so she can cut him off! Aria Jaxon now grabs him by the hair and with all of her strength pulls him back, bringing him toward the steel steps! Aria Jaxon leans him against those with malicious intentions! Aria Jaxon backs away….AND THEN RUNS AT AHREN FOURNIER FOR A CROSSBODY, SANDWICHING HIM BETWEEN HER AND THE STEEL STEPS! Aria Jaxon getting a lateral press here as the referee slides out of the ring and drops down for the cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWWOOOOOOO —
WWEFan: Ahren Fournier kicks out! Aria Jaxon will need more than that to get the win here! Aria Jaxon is already standing up, wanting him to get to his feet. He takes a knee and Aria catches him directly in the chest with a roundhouse as we could literally HEAR the impact of her boot connecting against his ribs! Ahren Fournier sinks down, covering himself up as it seems that blow really hurt him! Aria Jaxon looks to bring him up, doing her best to have him open — BUT THERE GOES AHREN FOURNIER JUMPING UP FOR AN UPPERCUT, GETTING ARIA RIGHT IN THE MOUTH WITH THAT CLEAN SHOT! Aria Jaxon is sat up on those steel steps in a daze as Ahren Fournier now has an opportunity to catch his breath! He walks around and now begins to walk up those steps to join her there!
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier stands over her as he YANKS her up to her feet by her hair as she is now stood up with Ahren! Ahren drives his knee directly into her midsection and then brings her in as her in….he her has her up in the air in crucifix position! Aria Jaxon is struggling with him though, trying to get out of it! Aria Jaxon falls out of it! She is not off the hook yet! Ahren Fournier reaches out to stop her from hopping off of those steps! Ahren Fournier pulls her back! NECKBREAKER ONTO THE STEEL STEPS! A VIOLENT THUD AS BOTH COMPETITORS FALL IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS OFF OF THOSE STEPS, I THINK THEY BOTH FELT THAT! Aria Jaxon appears to be out while Ahren Fournier is clutching his back, his spine went right off the edge of that steel there, he was so caught up that I don’t think he really thought that move through and prepared himself!
WWEFan: Ahren Fournier is taking a few seconds to recover but he has to capitalize right away! He claws his way over to Aria Jaxon, turns her over and hooks the leg as the referee counts!
WWEFan: Aria Jaxon gets the shoulder up and this match is still on! Ahren Fournier is frustrated here, running his fingers through his hair and trying to calm himself down as he thinks things over. Ahren Fournier has cleared his head and now he goes back to work on Aria, forcing her up onto a vertical while she still can barely stand on her own, holding her head and shouting into her face! Ahren is warning her of what is next as he binds back her arm and then he rears her back….oh…no…oh no….OH MY GOD — ARIA JAXON IS TOSSED INTO THE BARRICADE, CRASHING THROUGH INTO THE TIME KEEPER’S AREA AS I AM SURPRISED HER ARM DID NOT JUST SNAP!
Kawajai: Aria Jaxon is just absolutely covered in all of that wreckage as her body is bent up on the ground! Ahren is looking real proud of himself, look at him bragging right now, just grinning ear to ear in front of our audience, saying that this is what she gets! Ahren Fournier seems real satisfied with his handy work as he comes back around and checks on the body of Aria, he is coming here to finish this and WOAH! Aria! Aria Jaxon just CRACKED a bullpen hammer over the head of Ahren! Aria having enough time unattended to retrieve that hammer used to ring the bell at ringside! Ahren gave Aria a moment to scramble and it cost him dearly as now blood is dripping down his face!
WWEFan: Ahren Fournier is sporting a crimson mask and is currently wiping away blood in shock! He is SHAKING at the sight of red on his hand! Aria Jaxon stands over him, hurt arm and all, and has a look of vengeance on her face! She has a devious smile right now! She gets behind the panicked Ahren and hits him AGAIN, this time on the back of the head with that bullpen hammer! Aria follows Ahren as he wishes to get away! She is looking amused as she limps behind him. Ahren looks to lick his wounds as he returns to the ring, those hammer shots really messing with his balance. Aria rolls in behind him though, wrapping the base of the hammer around Ahren’s throat, choking him with it and then dropping him with a backstabber! Nice transition there as Aria Jaxon gets on top of Ahren while still favoring that arm right now, the referee gets in position…..
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOOO……THREEEEEE —
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier turns up off of his back and breaks the pin! I think the fact that Aria couldn’t hook the leg and get any leverage on that cover really cost her there. Aria appears to be in deep thought, momentarily rethinking her game plan. Aria gets up and corners the now downed Ahren and begins stomping on him viciously, not allowing for him to get up! Ahren is doing his best to power through and return to a standing position, but then Aria temporarily stuns him with a chop to the chest! Aria then gets some distance for a follow up…..and then sprints toward Ahren, yakuza kick to the face, perhaps a nod to her friend Nasir with that Ether there! But hold on! Ahren eats that shot and grasps at the leg of Aria! Ahren has Aria’s leg up in the air and Aria is hopping on one leg, being left at the mercy of Ahren WHO SENDS HER INTO THE AIR WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX!
WWEFan: Ahren Fournier ragdolled Aria Jaxon with that throw as she goes skidding across the canvas! Ahren rolls out of the ring following the delivery of the move as he goes underneath the ring and starts digging around for weapons! From what I heard both competitors asked for the ring crew to make sure to raise the stakes for this match up as far as supplying for it and it seems they have as LOOK AT WHAT AHREN FOURNIER IS PULLING OUT FROM UNDER THE RING! A BAG OF THUMBTACKS! A PACK OF LIGHT TUBES! A BARBED WIRE BOARD! Aria is currently shaking the cobwebs in the ring, unaware of what is going on while Ahren is bringing these things out. Ahren brings out a table next and soon notices Aria beginning to stir as he makes the decision to kick it into high gear! Ahren does a wise move as he places the light tubes and thumbtacks onto the flat table so he can now slide all three into the ring at once to save time!
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier now picks up the barbed wire board and goes to slide that into the ring — But Aria! Aria Jaxon with a baseball slide to the back of that barbed wire board, sending the wire directly into the face of Ahren, getting caught up in his skin as he has to rip away from it all! Ahren holds that open wound on his forehead as it surely is aggravated, looking even worse than it did previously! Ahren tries to shake it off and get back into this but Aria is standing over him on the ropes, leaning down upon him with one of those light tubes in her hand, ready to whack him in the head with it! She swings down at Ahren but Ahren puts both of his hands up and clasps it with quickness to block the shot! The two fight over control of it! Aria seems to just allow Ahren to take it, giving up early on the struggle, but why….
WWEFan: HOLY SHIT! ARIA JAXON LEAPS OFF OF THE ROPES! HOLLYWOOD HANGOVER! ARIA JAXON WITH THE SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG! ARIA JUST WENT FLYING INTO AHREN FROM INSIDE THE RING, COLLIDING INTO HIM WHILE HE HAD THAT TUBE IN HIS HAND AS IT JUST BROKE IN HIS FACE! THE MERCURY FROM THAT LIGHT TUBE IS FLOATING AROUND IN THE AIR AND IS FOR SURE GETTING INTO THE EYES AND BURNING THE WOUND OF AHREN! AHREN IS SPASMING ABOUT, MOVING LIKE A CHICKEN WITH ITS HEAD CUT OFF AS HE TRIES TO PROCESS THE PAIN OF THAT MOVE!
Kawajai: Aria cut herself up on the landing there but it was worth it, BRILLIANT strategy on her part as she now guides Ahren to his feet, throws him into the ring and then hops up onto the apron to walk to the corner and scale to the top rope! Aria Jaxon is perched there while Ahren lays there barely conscious! She preps herself….AND SHE LEAPS! ARIA DIVING FROM THE HEAVENS WITH A 450 SPLASH TO ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH TO THIS MATCH! YOU CAN SEE ALL OFF THE AIR SHOOT OF AHREN’S LUNGS AS HIS EYES WIDEN! ARIA HOOKS THE LEG AS WELL AS SHE CAN! WE HAVE A COVER!
WWEFan: NO! KICKOUT! AHREN FOURNIER WAS ALMOST A SPLIT SECOND AWAY FROM LOSING THE HARDCORE TITLE! ARIA CAN NOT BELIEVE! ARIA JAXON ROLLS OVER AND LAYS ON HER BACK NEXT TO AHREN, TIRED OUT AS SHE PUT HER ALL INTO THAT SEQUENCE!
Kawajai: Can you really blame her for being tired? I need a moment to calm down myself honestly, this match entered a whole other level in a matter of moments! Both competitors are just looking up at those lights, breathing in and out, neither really making an attempt here to get up just yet. Aria Jaxon finally turns over and begins stirring, but so is Ahren Fournier! Ahren Fournier on hands and knees, climbing up to his feet as Aria Jaxon gets on him, putting her hands on his back and pushing up to get to her feet! Ahren weakly tries to push her away, still a bit too loopy from that Hollywood Hangover to put any major force behind it as Aria gets right back to him and aims for a roundhouse to the temple! Ahren Fournier ducks it though and he again pushes her, this time with more strength behind it as she goes toward the ropes! Wait, Aria taking advantage of it! Aria handsprings against the ropes! THE BEAUTY MARKY BACK ELBOW SMASH!!!
WWEFan: —COUNTERED! AHREN STOPS HER RIGHT IN MID AIR WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE NECK! ARIA JAXON JUST DROPPED LIKE A TON OF BRICKS! THAT’S THE KIND OF HIT THAT PARALYZES SOMEONE! Ahren follows it up with a knee drop to the skull! Aria has been moving all over the ring this entire match and it looks like Ahren is determined to clip her wings once and for all! He gets close and takes both hands AHREN FOURNIER NOW BEGINNING TO CHOKE THE POOR WOMAN NOW! AHREN IS STARING DOWN AT HER COLDLY WITH NO EMOTION AS HE JUST CHOKES HER! WHAT POINT IS HE TRYING TO MAKE? OUCH! ARIA TAKES HER NAILS AND DIGS INTO AHREN’S OPEN CUT, DOING WHATEVER DAMAGE SHE CAN AS HE IMMEDIATELY GRABS AT IT AND LET’S GO! THE FLOW OF BLOOD WAS STARTING TO STOP UNTIL JUST NOW! AHREN FOURNIER COMES BACK AROUND ONCE THE PAIN GOES AWAY AND HE LOOKS PISSED!
Kawajai: OF COURSE HE IS! AHREN FOURNIER GETS IN A MOUNT AND STARTS PUNCHING ARIA JAXON IN THE FACE! AHREN WITH AN INTENSE SERIES OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS WHILE HE KEEPS HER GROUNDED! GOSH, THESE ARE NASTY SHOTS AS ARIA IS BEGINNING TO BECOME BLOODY! THE REF CRINGES AS HE CAN DO NOTHING ABOUT IT! AHREN FINALLY GETS UP BUT JUST LOOK AT WHAT HE DID!
WWEFan: Aria Jaxon is spitting up blood from her mouth now as Ahren Fournier walks away momentarily, picking up that bag of thumbtacks from the ground and now untying it! He holds up that open bag to make sure the entire London crowd can see as he then turns it over and lets all of the comments from it pour out! The thumbtacks cover the canvas as Ahren Fournier now tosses it away and walks over to Aria Jaxon! This is not good at all! Aria Jaxon is helpless, having no clue where she is really as Ahren Fournier drapes her arm over him and then lifts her up! A perfect vertical position here as he walks backwards toward the thumbtacks….OH DEAR GOD…..OH!!!!!!!
Kawajai: BRAINBUUUUUUSSSTTEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!!!! AHREN FOURNIER JUST DROVE ARIA JAXON HEAD FIRST INTO THOSE THUMBTACKS AS THE CROWD IS IN SHOCK! ARIA GETTING PLANTED WITH AUTHORITY AS THE CROWN OF ARIA’S HEAD HAS JUST BECOME DECORATED WITH THOSE SHARP OBJECTS AND SHE APPEARS TO BE DOWN FOR THE COUNT! ARIA’S BODY IS JUST OUT LIKE A LIGHT, LAYING ON THOSE THUMBTACKS AS AHREN FOURNIER GETS ON HER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS! THE REFEREE WORRIEDLY RUSHES OVER TO COUNT, THIS COULD BE IT!
Kawajai: What the — NO!? HUH!? ARIA JAXON LIFTED HER SHOULDER UP! ARIA’S OFF THE MAT AND THE PIN IS NO LONGER OFFICIAL, THE MATCH IS JUST BARELY STILL ON AND AHREN LOOKS TO BE ON THE VERGE OF A BREAKDOWN! HE WENT TO EXTREME MEASURES IN THE HOPES OF TAKING HER DOWN AND SHE STILL KEEPS THIS GOING! Ahren Fournier just gets up and in a fit of rage GRABS A LIGHT TUBE AND SWINGS IT OVER THE BACK OF ARIA JAXON AS IT SHATTERS UPON IMPACT! MY GOODNESS THIS MAN HAS LOST IT! AHREN FOURNIER IS FUMING AS HE PICKS UP THE TABLE IN THE RING AND SETS IT UP NOW! UH OH!
WWEFan: Ahren Fournier approaches Aria Jaxon — AND PUNTS HER IN THE FACE AS HE AGAIN LEAVES THE SQUARED CIRCLE AFTERWARD, HEADING UNDERNEATH THE RING! JUST WHAT ELSE COULD HE WANT!? AHREN FOURNIER IS ON A MISSION AS HE LOOKS PAST THE TARP, CRAWLING FAR UNDER THE RING TO RETRIEVE SOMETHING WHICH IT LOOKS LIKE HE HAS FOUND! AHREN FOURNIER IS CRAWLING BACK OUT AS HE PULLS OUT….LIGHTER FLUID! AHREN FOURNIER HAS LIGHTER FLUID IN HIS HAND!
Kawajai: Jesus Christ, no! Ahren Fournier rolls back into the ring, opens up the bottle of lighter fluid and squeezes it all over the table! Ahren Fournier is making sure to empty out the whole bottle onto that table as it is drenched in fluid! Ahren Fournier is now digging through his jean pocket as he pulls out a match! Ahren bringing them with him in anticipation, you have to think he put that lighter fluid there himself! Ahren now lifts his boot off of the mat and strikes the match against the bottom, lighting it up with the edge of his shoe-sole! A creative idea there as he now takes that match and tosses it against the table AS IT GOES UP IN A BLAZE! THAT FIRE IS JUST ROARING, WE BOTH CAN FEEL THE HEAT OF IT FROM HERE AT THE BOOTH! I HAVE NOT SEEN A FLAME LIKE THAT EVER, THIS IS SOMETHING SERIOUS!
WWEFan: And Aria Jaxon is still on the ground, eyes glazed over defenseless as I am sure she knows what Ahren Fournier has in mind! Aria Jaxon is just trying to pick herself up, thumbtacks still hanging in her hair while she has to take them out. Ahren Fournier places her over his shoulder and then BATTERING RAMS HER INTO THE CORNER, FORCING HER UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE AS A FOLLOW UP! Ahren Fournier looks her in the eye and continues to talk trash!
Ahren Fournier: Just remember that you asked for this! You put this on yourself you STUPID –
WWEFan: Aria Jaxon just spit in his face! AHREN FOURNIER SOCKS HER WITH A HARD RIGHT IN RESPONSE! Aria Jaxon going out with defiance as Ahren Fournier has had enough of this! He gets between the ropes and climbs to the top, joining Aria Jaxon there as he lifts her up! Ahren Fournier has Aria Jaxon in the air, right above those flames on the table! The crowd is in a hush here, on edge in fear as they know what is next, the exclamation point to this match. That fire is at its worst right now as it all over the entire table! Ahren Fournier balances himself up at the top….bends his knees in preparation….AND GOES OFF THE TOP, POWERBOMBBBBBBBBBBB —
Kawajai: WHAT THE HELL!? OH MY LORD! ARIA JAXON COUNTERS IN MID AIR, TURNING IT AROUND ON AHREN FOURNIER! HURRICANRANA! HURRICANRANA THROUGH THE FLAMING TAAAABBLEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IN AN INSTANCE THE ROOF OF THIS PLACE HAS JUST BLOWN OFF! THE CROWD HAS SHOT UP TO THEIR FEET, NOT SURE WHAT THEY WITNESSED! CAN YOU IMAGINE — AHREN FOURNIER WAS JUST MOMENTARILY ENGULFED IN THE FIRE AS HE WENT THROUGH THE TABLE! AHREN DYING BY HIS OWN SWORD AS ARIA JAXON CAUGHT HIM COMPLETELY BY SURPRISE WITH THAT LAST MINUTE SAVE! AHREN FOURNIER IS ON HIS KNEES, HOLDING HIS BACK AS HE SOON DROPS AND ROLLS AROUND TO PUT HIMSELF OUT IN CASE THERE IS ANYTHING LEFT ON HIM! AHREN FOURNIER IS A SCARED, BURNING MESS WHO CAN NOT EVEN NOTICE ARIA JAXON SLUMPED IN THE CORNER RIGHT BEHIND HIM, STEPPING OUT AND COMING AT HIM WITH THE LAST OF HER STRENGTH!
WWEFan: THE CONTRACT KILLER SUPERKICK! AHREN FOURNIER GOT HIS HEAD KICKED OFF AS HE FALLS OUT! ARIA JAXON ROLLS ON TOP OF HIM, PULLING AT HIS LEG WITH HER INJURED ARM! THE REFEREE HEADS DOWN! WE MAY JUST HAVE A NEW CHAMPION HERE, HOLD ON!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Kawajai: SHE DID IT – WAIT! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THE REFEREE IS SAYING IT’S A NO GO! WHY?
WWEFan: THE SHOULDER OF AHREN FOURNIER IS POSITIONED OFF THE MAT THERE! NOT A SHARP KICK OUT BUT IT STILL QUALIFIES! WHO KNOWS IF THAT WAS A CONSCIOUS ACTION OR EVEN INSTINCT! AHREN CAUGHT A LUCKY BREAK AS HE HAS MOMENTARILY SAVED HIS TITLE! ARIA JAXON ARGUING WITH THE OFFICIAL BUT IT WILL BE NO USE! Aria Jaxon realizes that and in exhaustion lays down….ONLY TO KIP UP! Aria Jaxon has trouble keeping her footing and immediately falls forward into the ropes! The crowd is excited for her, cheering her on as she is using it as motivation! Aria Jaxon points toward a member of the crowd! She’s gesturing to him and shouting out instructions! She wants something from him it appears as…THE AUDIENCE MEMBER TOSSES HIS CHAIR INTO THE RING! A SECOND CROWD MEMBER TOSSES THEIRS! Aria seeming to have gotten what she needs as she takes a steel chair and places it underneath Ahren! She has the other one with her! You know what’s next! ARIA SWINGS DOWN UPON HIM!
Kawajai: BUT AHREN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! THE IMPACT OF THAT MISS SHOOTING UP THE ARMS OF ARIA AS SHE IS THEN FORCED TO DROP IT! Aria is stunned but Ahren Fournier is still too hurt to capitalize! Aria shakes the feeling out of her hand and makes her way to Ahren — who shoots for her midsection, literally headbutting her! That’s all Ahren could think of there as it definitely bought him some time! Ahren grabs Aria’s hair and pulls her down to his level! Ahren using all of his might to keep her down, another head butt, this one to the skull as Ahren now straightens himself up…AND THEN HE JUMPS UP HIMSELF! THE STORYBOOK ENDING CURB STOMP ONTO THE CHAIR! DOWN GOES ARIA! AHREN FOURNIER WITH A PIN ATTEMPT, WILL THIS BE WHAT ENDS THE MATCH!?
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
WWEFan: ARIA JAXON KICKS OUT! THESE TWO WON’T QUIT! WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO END THIS MATCH! NEITHER COMPETITOR WILL SAY DIE, THEY WILL NOT ALLOW THEIR BODIES TO SURRENDER! Ahren Fournier lays on top of the sideways body of Aria Jaxon, perhaps too spent to make the effort to get up at the moment, but Aria reaches with her legs, flipping Ahren over in a head scissors! Ahren Fournier is trapped in the hold, doing what he can to get out of it! He pops his head out but then Aria just repositions her legs as he comes at her! A DROP TOE HOLD SENDING HIM INTO THE TACKS! AHREN FOURNIER PUT HIS HANDS UP TO PROTECT HIMSELF BUT IT IS NOT MUCH USE! ARIA NOW SCRAMBLES TO GRAB A STEEL CHAIR AGAIN, UNFOLDING IT AND THEN WRAPPING IT AROUND AHREN’S NECK! NO, NO, NO! ARIA JAXON IS ABOUT TO TAKE THIS EVEN FURTHER TO THE EXTREME!
Kawajai: ARIA JAXON HAS SOMETHING TO PROVE TONIGHT! ARIA SAID WHAT MAKES HER HARDCORE IS SHE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO OBTAIN AN ACCOLADE AND THAT IS SHOWN TO ITS FULLEST RIGHT NOW! Aria Jaxon heads to the ropes, climbing up to the top! Ahren Fournier is lost, moving around hunched over with that chair over his head! Ahren Fournier is just swinging at anything but I think he soon realizes Aria is up above! Ahren bumps into the referee AND HE SWINGS HIS FOOT BACK, CATCHING THE REFEREE BELOW THE BELT! AS HE DOES THIS ARIA JAXON GOES OFF! THE CALIFORNIA CRUSH! CORKSCREW STUNNER WITH THAT CHAIR WRAPPED AROUND AHREN’S NECK, THAT WILL DESTROY YOUR VOICE BOX! AHREN FOURNIER FALLS OVER AS ARIA JAXON GETS ON TOP OF HIM, HOOKING THE LEG!
WWEFan: The referee is too busy hurting on the ground to handle the cover though! Aria Jaxon has Ahren Fournier down for the count but there is no official available to count the pin! Aria Jaxon gets up, frustrated as she limps over to the referee and shakes him about, yelling at him, demanding that he suck it up and get to his feet! The referee is starting to get to a knee but is gingerly doing so! Aria Jaxon starts to push him around, she doesn’t have time for this! Aria continues to threaten the official as he is now finally is up! Aria Jaxon now drops down and goes for the cover for real this time!
Kawajai: AHREN FOURNIER WILL NOT BE PUT AWAY FOR THE THREE! DAMN IT, THOSE FEW EXTRA SECONDS, THAT ONE MOVE BY AHREN GAVE HIM ENOUGH TIME TO MUSTER UP THAT KICK OUT! Aria Jaxon gets up and says “that’s it!” Aria Jaxon is yelling for Ahren Fournier to get up to his feet! She wants this to end NOW! Aria Jaxon watches Ahren Fournier use the ropes as a crutch as he soon turns around and locks eyes with her! The two begin to limp toward each other, slowly making their way over as they meet up and they go to blows! Aria Jaxon ducks a punch by Ahren, a punch of her own! Then a second! And a third! Ahren catches the fourth though! PUNCH TO THE ARM, THAT INJURED ARM OF ARIA! ARIA HOLDS ONTO THAT AS AHREN COCKS HIS FIST — AND CONNECTS ALL OF THE WAY WITH A HARD RIGHT! OH MY GOD! ARIA JAXON’S HEAD WHIPS BACK VIOLENTLY AS BLOOD GOES FLYING FROM HER MOUTH, ARIA FALLS OVER! AHREN GETTING A PERFECTLY CLEAN PUNCH THERE AND THE WEAKENED ARIA GOES DOWN! AHREN THEN RUNS UP ON WITH A ROUNDHOUSE!
WWEFan: Ahren Fournier just ran through Aria Jaxon! Ahren Fournier is running off of pure adrenaline and is now leaning over for those fallen chairs! He is setting them up parallel to each other, planning something out as the wheels in his head are spinning! Ahren Fournier looks around the ring and spots the remainder of those light tubes, he is now laying them over those chairs! Ahren making up a makeshift table here with the chairs and the light tubes, this could be bad!
Kawajai: It may just be even worse, Ahren Fournier sees the barbed wire board and then he slides it underneath the chairs, this is three levels of pain here! I don’t know what he has in mind but I do not like a single bit of it!
WWEFan: You have to be an absolutely sick individual to think a contraption like this up! Ahren Fournier looks down upon Aria Jaxon who is struggling to get up to her feet, spitting up blood, literally using his legs to pull herself up and is laughing! He loves this! Aria Jaxon sees his cockiness and it is making her sick! PELE KICK BY ARIA! Ahren Fournier nearly falls onto his own set up but catches himself! He bounces back — SHOTGUN KNEES INTO THE CHEST OF ARIA JAXON AS SHE GOES FLYING! AHREN SHOOTS TO HIS FEET AND GRABS HER ON THE REBOUND, HE POPS HER UP AND THEN TURNS IN MID AIR — POWERBOMB INTO HIS CREATION! ARIA JAXON GOING THROUGH THOSE LIGHT TUBES, BREAKING PAST THE CHAIRS AND THEN DROPPING INTO THAT BARBED WIRE BOARD BELOW! OH DEAR GOD WE NEED SOME HELP OUT HERE, ARIA JAXON JUST GOT DRILLED!
Kawajai: MERCURY, CHAIRS AND BARBED WIRE SURROUND ARIA, COVERING HER AS AHREN FOURNIER GOES FOR THE COVER! MY GOD, COUNT THE PIN!
TReferee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Little Violence” by Waterparks plays as Ahren Fournier stands up, letting out a laugh as the referee hands him the EAW Hardcore title. He raises the belt up high and with that last action he falls on his back, out of energy. Meanwhile EMTs rush over to Aria Jaxon, pulling her apart from the mess she was thrown through.)
Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH AND STILL EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION………AHHHHHREEEEEENNNN FOOOOURRRNNIEEERRRR!!!
Kawajai: My goodness…..Ahren Fournier is a sick, twisted, hardcore GENIUS. I CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE JUST SAW!
WWEFan: I have never seen a match like this take place between an Elitist and a Vixen. What a brutal, bloody, war that this was! These two fought to the very last breath and it took the most insane creation I have ever seen to put an end to this match! Kudos to Aria Jaxon for showing us why she is The First Lady of Voltage and in my opinion, one of the premiere Hardcore athletes in EAW, along with a congratulations to Ahren Fournier, our winner.
Kawajai: Aria Jaxon almost had it. You had to think if the ref could count sooner she would be our Champion. But still, with blood dripping down his forehead, burns on his back and thumbtacks embedded into his face, this man pulled through! Ahren Fournier with another incredible defense in his reign! Ahren Fournier rolls out of the ring as the referee is helping him to the back, he’s going to have the celebration of a lifetime once he recovers I assume! Now, if we can just get Aria’s status right now — hopefully she is ok.
WWEFan: EMTs are looking over Aria Jaxon, pulling her out of the barbed wire as they are now ordering for a stretcher to load her onto. The medics are looking to lift her up onto it– but wait. Aria! Aria Jaxon is shaking her head no, she’s pushing them aside! The medics are asking her just what in the world she is doing but Aria Jaxon goes off of the stretcher! Aria Jaxon is dripping blood and can barely stand but she’d rather walk up the ramp using the barricade to keep standing instead of going away on a stretcher! Just WOW! I don’t think we have ever seen a competitor quite like her here. What an athlete!
Kawajai: You have to admire her guts. There is no denying the performance she put on. I am sure this is not the last of her in the Hardcore division.
(The crowd gives out a roaring applause as Aria Jaxon continues to walk up the stage, giving a wave to the audience as we fade away from ringside.)
(We cut backstage to where we see Keelan Cetinich preparing for his match in the locker room. His phone rings, but at the same time, Nathan Fiora enters the scene on crutches and Keelan puts his phone on top of his bag…)
Keelan: How may I help you?
Nathan (looking at Keelan’s phone): Two missed calls from Mad-
Keelan: HOW MAY I HELP YOU?!
Nathan (laughing): Just wanted to check in and see how you were doing. You picked up that win over Zack Crash last week, so congratulations on that.
Keelan: Well thank you. Too be honest your pep talk before that match really got me going.
Nathan: Well, I meant everything I said. You’re the next big thing here on Voltage, and everybody knows it. You’ve just got to stop overthinking and your time will come.
Keelan: I really appreciate it …… you know, despite the fact that you were a MASSIVE asshole last year when I was coming after your Hardcore Title at the time, it’s really cool to see you have turned a new leaf. I used to have that attitude too, and it always got me into hot water.
Nathan: Yeah well that attitude got me that championship and while I held onto it for a lengthy amount of time, towards the end of my run with it, I just didn’t feel like I earned it properly. And I think karma bit me on the ass. Remember when I destroyed your knee? Well … look at me now.
(The two share a laugh, and a bit of a silence. Nate pats Keelan on the back…)
Nathan: You’ve got Terry Chambers tonight. He is beneath you, and you know it. Go out there and do what you do best! I believe in you!
Keelan: Thank you, Nate.
(The two exchange a handshake and Nathan leaves. Keelan picks up his phone and begins to dial the phone…)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!
(“Vengeance on My Mind” by G-Eazy ft. Dana plays as Marco Fedor arrives in the arena, a cast on his “injured” arm as makes his way down the ramp to the ring, a crescendo of boos greeting him.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, Representing the WOLVESDEN, from Lexington, Kentucky, weighing in at 185 pounds…….MARRRRRRRRRRCOOOOOOOOOOOO FEDORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
Kawajai: The “White Wolf” of the WOLVESDEN as he calls himself is here to fight a longtime nemesis in ONI. Marco still mourning the loss of the stable, still hung up on their demise. He tried to get the jump on him on our last episode of Voltage but it didn’t work out as planned. Instead, he cost JD Damon a match against ONI and was forced into retreat.
WWEFan: This young man is extremely talented. Very quick but also a fine striker and versed in submission holds. The one wild card that he definitely has though is his neverending army of followers. Every time you think you’ve seen it all, he has something else in store.
Kawajai: Plus he has that arm that he had to sit out some time with that was injured, broken at the hands of his opponent tonight. My sources tell me it’s fully healed but he insists on wearing that hard cast over it, no doubt with intent to use it as a weapon tonight.
(The arena goes dark as “The Black Wind Howls” begins to play, setting off a surprisingly loud round of cheers from the audience. As the guitar riff picks up, strobes hit the stage, illuminating the smoke that has built up there. ONI strides out, in his long leather jacket, draped in chains, followed by Keiji Baiyushi. ONI stalks down the ramp, a brandishing a sick smile on his face, followed by his grandfather. When ONI reaches the ring, he nimbly hops onto the apron and climbs atop a turnbuckle, posing for the crowd, as his grandfather takes the stair onto the apron. ONI hops down from the corner beside his grandfather, as Keiji leans in to give ONI last minute advice.)
Ring Announcer: His opponent, Representing the Sanatorium, residing in the Prescott Hill Sanitarium in Arizona……”The Demon of the Sanatorium”…….OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!
WWEFan: As dangerous as they come, as violent as they come and it’s got to be in the back of Marco’s mind that this man injured him badly.
Kawajai: Indeed it does. But ONI has to find himself prepared to face not just this man but people from almost any direction.
(DING DING DING!!!!)
WWEFan: And Marco immediately charges at ONI, using that cast-shielded arm to batter ONI across the head, back and shoulder with clubbing forearm blows. ONI answers with a rake to the eyes and a vicious chop to the chest to buy himself a slight reprieve, but Marco retaliates with more clubbing blows!
Kawajai: The referee trying to warn him about that as ONI’s grandfather Keiji is shouting instruction. Marco pulls ONI to the center of the ring and starts landing a flurry of kicks, elbow strikes and knees from a Muay Thai clinch before taking him down with vicious European Uppercut! ONI strugging to get out of the gates here as Marco immediately grabs at his arm, stomping at it, trying to cause some damage!
WWEFan: I don’t agree with all of Marco’s methods but this would be some poetic justice if he could break the arm of the man who injured him.
Kawajai: ONI’s Arm is held down on the Canvas as Marco leaps into the air………..KNEE DROP RIGHT ON THE ARM! ONI’s rolling around holding that arm and Marco very well may have injured it! That cast has played a big role in him getting an early jump on the Demon but the crowd is not impressed.
Crowd: MARCO IS A WANKER! MARCO IS A WANKER! MARCO IS A WANKER!
WWEFan: That is putting it rather mildly. Fedor pulls ONI up by the hair and ONI lands a punch right to the gut but Marco uses that clubbing forearm again. The White Wolf goes charging into the ropes, Looking for a flying forearm strike but ONI counters with a flapjack! ONI up on his feet quickly as Fedor is up as well! Marco tries a kick to the head that’s thwarted by a block from ONI…ONI grips that same leg…DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP!
Kawajai: Marco rolling around, clutching at his knee before dipping out of the ring, leaving ONI alone in the ring to lay on the mat, posing and beckoning Marco to rejoin him back in the ring.
WWEFan: The Kentuckian looks a bit flustered at the moment but he recollects himself as the referee begins his 10-count. Marco back in and ONI immediately up to his feet, landing some punches to the head and a slap to the face for good measure! But Marco retaliates with that casted arm again, forcing the referee again to step in after he staggers ONI with a blood to the head!
Kawajai: This is bordering on insanity. If the cast isn’t necessary, he shouldn’t even have been allowed to wear it.
WWEFan: ONI is forced back into a neutral corner as Marco tells one fan at ringside to go do something that I’d rather not repeat on air. Marco pulling him up to the top rope! Is Marco looking to kick off a Superplex Party!? NO! ONI BATTERING HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH DESPERATE FOREARMS!
Kawajai: Marco retreats back to the canvas. ONI standing up on the top turnbuckle….FLYING BUSAIKU KNEE FROM THE TOP ROPE! A BEAUTIFUL STRIKE! ONI HOOKS THE LEG!
WWEFan: NO! Marco kicks out right before three.
(ONI looks up at the referee, somewhat irritated at what he thought was a slow count. The referee holds up two fingers signaling the count and ONI simply spits in his direction before standing up.)
Kawajai: Well that was disrespectful. ONI is up as he tries to figure out what to do with Marco. He’s looking around the ring but Fedor is rising. ONI sees it and nails him with a running stomp right to the head! ONI taking care of business with stomp after stomp after stomp! Marco trying to cover up to keep his head from getting bashed in and ONI has enough….he goes for a clench from behind…lifting up Marco…..HE’S GOING FOR A DEADLIFT GERMAN!
WWEFan: ONI’s power is one of his most underrated assets and it’s on full display as he pulls Marco up from his knees on the canvas…he’s going to lift him UP! NO! MARCO COUNTERS WITH SOME VICIOUS ELBOWS TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD, BREAKING HIMSELF FREE! MARCO GOES RUNNING INTO THE ROPES….SPRINGBOARD PELE KICK TAKES ONI DOWN AGAIN! MARCO SCRAMBLES TO HIS FEET AND LOCKS IN A SHARPSHOOTER! He’s got it hooked in the center of the ring!
Kawajai: This is a little strange to me. He spent the early parts of the match attacking the arm and head of ONI. Why try a leg submission here?
WWEFan: I think this is more about wearing down the man, causing pain, maybe taking away that vertical base. I think he’ll go back to the arm eventually but I do sense there is some strategy in this from a man notorious for using all sorts of holds. ONI is being asked over and over again if he wants to quit, but he’s shaking his head no even as he screams in pain! He pushes his upper body upwards…crawling on his hands to try to get to that bottom rope!
Kawajai: Marco needs to sit back a little more and get a little more leverage….ONI’s having way too easy a time getting to the ropes!
WWEFan: ONI gets to the ropes but Marco is refusing to let go of the hold.
Referee: (no Mic) CMON! LET HIM GO, MARCO! ONE! TWO!
(the crowd starts to boo even louder as Marco refuses to let go)
(as the referee prepares to count five, Marco releases the hold.)
Kawajai: No good, but smart strategy. He kept the hold in as long as he could before getting disqualified. Marco back to work on that arm stomping at it as ONI tries to pull himself up to his feet. Marco slams his casted arm down over the uncovered arm of ONI, the Demon screaming and reeling in pain! Marco smirking a bit as he pulls away. What is he doing?
WWEFan: I think I know what he’s got planned! You remember when he tried to lariat ONI last week with that steel chain wrapped around his arm! I think he’s going to go for it again but this time with the cast!
Kawajai: ONI is up to his feet as MARCO COMES CRASHING IN! DISCUS LARIAT NEARLY TAKES ONI’S HEAD OFF!
WWEFan: NO! HE MOVED! MARCO CLOCKED THE REFEREE INSTEAD! ONI PULLS MARCO IN….POP UP STUNNER!
(The crowd starts to murmur as a large man steps over the barricade, pushing the security aside as if they were small children.)
WWEFan: Who the hell is this!?
Kawajai: I think it’s that bodyguard of Marco’s! There’s Kronos! At least six foot eight and well over 300 pounds! He’s tossing security around like sacks of tea or something! ONI sees him and gets up to his feet! ONI gets a running start into the ropes and does a LEAPING DIVE OVER THE ROPES BUT THIS MONSTER CATCHES HIM IN MID AIR LIKE A SMALL CHILD….SMASHING HIM INTO THE RING POST!
WWEFan: UH OH……His eyes are turning towards Keiji. I hear this old man is tough but this giant of a human being is dangerous. This giant grabs Keiji by the collar of the shirt…BLACK MIST! BLACK MIST TO THE FACE OF THIS MONSTROSITY….AND THEN A CANE SHOT RIGHT TO THE BALLS….THIS MONSTER FALLS TO HIS KNEES AND KEIJI HITS HIM AGAIN WITH ANOTHER STRIKE RIGHT TO THE HEAD!
Kawajai: DON’T MESS WITH JAPAN! Now, hopefully it’s one on one now…ONI is still laid out on the floor as Marco is back up to his feet! His insurance policy didn’t do a bunch of damage but maybe he did enough to help him win this match. Marco is up and pulling ONI up…but ONI catches him with GREEN MIST! AND NOW ONI GRABS THAT CASTED ARM….SLAMMING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN INTO THE STEEL STEPS AND RING POST! HE’S GOING LIKE AN ABSOLUTE MADMAN!
WWEFan: He’s breaking the cast! THE CAST IS STARTING TO FLY APART FROM ONI’S SAVAGERY! MARCO IS PULLING AWAY NOW THAT HIS PRIMARY WEAPON HAS BEEN DISABLED! ONI CHASING AFTER HIM AND SLIDING BACK INTO THE RING. ONI TRIES A DISCUS LARIAT!
Kawajai: HE MISSES THOUGH! MARCO TRIES TO GO FOR THE REGALIA BUT IT’S COUNTERED INTO A BEAUTIFUL DOUBLE KNEE ARMBREAKER!
WWEFan: That’s the same arm that ONI injured before! ONI’s not finished yet as he quickly gets up to his feet…HE GRABS THE ARM……EXCRUCIAN! OH MY GOODNESS! THOSE KICKS TO THE HEAD LOOK EXTRA VILE TONIGHT! MARCO IS STRUGGLING TO TRY TO GET FREE BUT HE CANNOT! THE REFEREE IS CHECKING ON HIM! MARCO IS OUT! THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL AND THAT WILL BE ALL!
(DING DING DING!!!)
(“The Black Wind Howls” plays as ONI relinquishes the hold and stands up, posing for the crowd before his hand is raised by the referee! ONI immediately departs with his grandfather as Marco struggles to regain consciousness and his footing.)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this contest….OOOOOOOOONIIIIIIIII!!!
WWEFan: That match was pretty damn brutal at times! Both of these men had a lot of tricks up their sleeve but its ONI who picks up the win and he looks to have finally settled the score with Marco Fedor.
Kawajai: I’m not sure about that. Marco’s never the one to let a defeat like this go. He will be back again, sooner rather than later I think and next time ONI may not get as lucky as he did here tonight.

(The lights cut off as the opening guitar riff to “Oblivion” by 30 Seconds to Mars plays. When Jared Leto starts singing a spotlight shines on stage as Keelan stands there posing. He signals to the crowd a bit before sprinting towards the ring just before the chorus and after the first verse.)
Ring announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first! From Logan City, Queensland, Australia! KEEEEEELLLAAANNN CEETTTIIINNNIIICCCHHH!!!!
Kawajai: Listen to the reaction from this crowd! They love Keelan! And this match is fascinating. Terry Chambers has been destroying everything in his path to prove he is one of the best in this company, and Keelan has come in his path.
WWEFan: It’s not just that, though. Keelan is beloved by the Voltage fans. Terry might hate that even more.
Kawajai: But Keelan is just trying to earn his keep here. How can he help it that the fans have are behind him.
(“Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. plays as Terry Chambers slowly walks out from behind the curtain to loud boos from the crowd. He looks out over the audience and stretches his shoulders before starting his way down the ramp, staring at every fan that jeers him.)
Ring announcer: And his opponent! From Detroit, Michigan! TEEERRRRRRYYY CHHHAAAMMMBBBEEERRRSSS!!!!
WWEFan: And then listen to this reaction. See what I mean? Terry just wants to be the best and he wants to get rid of the worst out there. His eyes have settled on Keelan.
Kawajai: But how can you even blame Keelan for that?
WWEFan: It’s easy. Terry doesn’t have to say it though. He shows it!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: And these are ready to go now. Keelan comes out of his corner ready to meet Terry head on, but Terry isn’t budging just yet. He’s sizing his opponent up from his corner and now he comes out, too. Almost stalking Keelan with that expression on his face. Keelan goes for the tie up! Terry just shoves him away! Keelan runs out again and another shove from Terry! No respect!
WWEFan: Terry doesn’t need to show Keelan respect. If Keelan wants that, he can earn it. You don’t earn it just by stepping in the ring with a man. Keelan going to try this again!? Terry just shoving him back into the corner now and runs right after him! Clothesline in the corner and Keelan bounces off of the turnbuckle and right into the mat! That’s the power behind the 6-foot-7, 287-pound body of Terry Chambers.
Kawajai: Keelan not letting this start get him down as he stands right back up, but Terry is waiting! Suplex from behind! Terry wasting no time hauling this man right back up to his feet again and hitting him with yet another suplex from the back! Keelan trying to crawl his way up to his feet and now Terry from the front with a German suplex! He dusts off his hands as Keelan grabs the nearby rope and goes to pull himself up.
WWEFan: This is a mauling, and it’s exactly what I expected. Keelan is a nice fighter, but he doesn’t really compare to Terry at this level. Look, Terry’s about to take him on a ride again!
Kawajai: No! Keelan delivering an elbow to the gut and now he comes in with a quick flurry of punches to back Terry away! He hits the ropes. Oh my! A powerbomb from Terry just absolutely lays Keelan out and Terry will try to put an end to this!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!!
WWEFan: Keelan kicks out and I have no idea why. Why does this man wish to cause himself more physical pain!? Terry doesn’t care. He’s got a little bit of a grin forming as he hauls Keelan back to his feet and tosses him back into the ground! This is hilarious. This crowd hates it, but Keelan had this coming.
Kawajai: Don’t act like this is over.
WWEFan: It’s over. Keelan doesn’t have any offense and Terry is playing with him like a predator with wounded prey.
Kawajai: Not so fast, my friend! Keelan with a burst of energy as he rushes to his feet and starts delivering punches right to the gut and doubling Terry over. Now Keelan heading for the ropes. Terry going for the powerbomb again! But Keelan remembers that trick from last time as he ducks under and hits the ropes on the other side. Discus clothesline from Keelan and Terry is stumbling backwards.
WWEFan: That was a lucky shot. He didn’t even get all of it.
Kawajai: Keelan will run the ropes again and again he ducks a move from Terry. Keelan coming back with a sling blade! Terry didn’t get turned around in time and now for the first time in this match Keelan Cetinich has taken his opponent down to the ground. How about that?
WWEFan: I’ll admit I’m surprised by this sudden offensive showing from Keelan. But I won’t be surprised if it doesn’t last.
Kawajai: Keelan is picking apart at Terry as he tries to get up from the ground now. A clothesline there. And now a dropkick and Terry is getting frustrated by this. Keelan rushing to the nearby corner and going up top. He’s waiting for Terry to stand up and turn around. Terry working his way up to his feet.
WWEFan: Terry better look out here.
Kawajai: Diving crossbody from Keelan! Terry catches him! Right out of the air he catches him! He couldn’t have seen him more than… more than a second!? Terry tossing Keelan on his shoulders. Here it comes!
WWEFan: T-5! What the hell!?
Kawajai: Terry went for his version of the F-5, but Keelan just spun around and landed on his feet! Superkick!! Keelan lays out Terry and he rushes down to the ground for the pin!!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!!
WWEFan: Terry just tossed Keelan off of him and he’s immediately getting back up to his feet. Keelan back up, too, and here he comes. Terry with the stiff kick right to the gut and he lines him up. Another powerbomb. He pulls him right back in and goes for another one! Terry’s going for it again! He pulls in Keelan and here comes another powerbomb!
Kawajai: Keelan punching him from on top of Terry’s shoulders! He’s trying to sneak his way out of trouble! Oh but it’s too late! Terry breaks out of the trouble and slams Keelan right back on to his back. Terry bending down and slapping his hands on the mat as he paces around the ring. Keelan is absolutely laid out.
WWEFan: Terry just reminded us all just how powerful he can be. Even when it looked like Keelan would escape, Terry just powers through and finishes the job. And now he’s lining up in the corner and waiting for Keelan to get up.
Kawajai: The evil intentions in the eyes of Terry Chambers as he again stalks Keelan. Now he moves to another corner so he can stay behind Keelan’s vision. Keelan doesn’t know what’s coming as he crawls his way back up to his feet. He scans the ring for Terry. SPEAR! HE JUST SPEARED THE LIFE OUT OF KEELAN! GOOD LORD!
WWEFan: And mercifully, Terry is going to bring this one to an end.
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!
Kawajai: He kicked out! Terry looks a little shocked. Or maybe more pissed!
WWEFan: What is going through Keelan’s mind? Is he insane, or just stupid!?
Kawajai: Terry now stomping away at Keelan. I think he’s going to make him pay for kicking out! Keelan trying to roll away, but Terry is right there. Now he goes down and he’s going ground and pound style on Keelan. Get in there ref!
WWEFan: No! Let it continue! This is great!
Kawajai: The ref is forcing Terry back into his corner, but Terry heading right back for more as he hauls Keelan back up to his feet. Terry going for the ankle slam! Keelan slinking right off of his shoulders and he hits a low kick and a tornado DDT! Keelan coming back with another flurry of offense as he brings Terry back up to his feet and he drives him back into the corner with a series of punches.
WWEFan: Where does this man find this energy to come out of nowhere with his offense. Terry had this match completely out of control. Keelan backing up for something now, but Terry coming out of the corner and giving chase. Keelan running away toward the nearby corner!
Kawajai: Death from Above! Terry never saw it coming! Keelan with the mindset to change his course and go another direction. But now he’s got to get back up and take advantage. Keelan using the ropes to drag himself up and climb the turnbuckle. Terry is already stirring and he’s up on his hands and knees. Keelan coming off the top with a double knee drop right into the back! Terry grasping at his back and screaming!
WWEFan: That took something out of Keelan, too! He’s rolling away and grasping at his left knee. It might be hard for either one of these guys to pull it all together and win this match.
Kawajai: But both are finding their way back to a vertical base to give that a try. Keelan giving it a run. HUGE CLOTHESLINE FROM TERRY AND IT TURNED KEELAN INSIDE OUT.
WWEFan: Damn! Did he kill him!?
Kawajai: Somehow, Keelan is trying to get right back to his feet and Terry is heading for him. Here comes a belly-to-belly suplex! Keelan stops it and now he grabs Terry’s arms and he’s prying away at the grip. Keelan with a headbutt! Terry just absorbs it and he hits a Angle Slam! Terry letting out a primal scream as he leans down and hooks Keelan’s leg!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!
WWEFan: NO! HOW THE HELL DID KEELAN KICK OUT AGAIN!?
Kawajai: From the very bottom of his reserves, Keelan Cetinich is still alive in this match. Terry Chambers can not believe it. Keelan starting to stir more on the ground and Terry reaches down and grabs him. Look at the face of Terry. He’s going to kill, Keelan. He’s going for the T-5 again! Terry gritting his teeth!
WWEFan: This one is over! Terry Chambers taking out yet another one!
Kawajai: KEELAN BREAKS THE GRIP AND ROLLS OFF OF TERRY’S SHOULDERS! KILLER-KO! THE JUMPING CUTTER FROM KEELAN AND NOW HE’S GOING FOR THE PIN, TOO!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: You’ve got to be kidding me!
Kawajai: Keelan Cetinich pulls off the win. He withstood everything Terry threw at him and pulled out a win when it looked like all hope was lost.
WWEFan: I’ll give Keelan his due. But Terry is still a force of nature.

(We return to the 02 Arena with the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring….)
Ring Announcer: The following is a Falls Count Anywhere – TWO OUT OF THREE FALLLLLLLLSSSSS MATCHHHHHHHHHH!
Kawajai: Well ladies and gentleman this match should be interesting to say the least if I were a parent, I would think to possibly put the kids to bed early because this is going to be a fight!
(“Long Live The Chief” by Jidenna plays as Aren Mstislav and Nasir Moore step out onto the stage as the crowd explodes. The two of them are out in matching black and red attire with T-Shirts promoting their reunion.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, they are the team of Nasir Moore and Aren Mstislav…..THE NAAAAAASSSSS AAAANNNDDDD MSTISLAV CONNECTION!!!!
WWEFan: These two are back in action and it is great to see it! For the first time in years we are seeing them as a regular unit once again. These guys had a rough patch in recent weeks, there was some uncertainties due to miscommunication but now they have come together with a common goal: defeating the People With Class and getting their victory back. They are brothers in arms once more and that is a scary sight for whatever team crosses their path!
(“Don’t Stop” by Innerpartysystem plays over the loudspeaker as the crowd boo’s Mike Showman and Jon McAdams make there way down to the ring….)
Ring Announcer: And their opponents at a combined weight of 419 pounddsss………………..PEOPPPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEE WITHHHHHHHH CLAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
WWEFan: Mike and Jon have huge potential as a great tag team and has shown it already the past few weeks. They could boost up to the top of the tag team division if they get a win over Aren and Nas right now at Fighting Spirit III! They have done it once before but this right here, on such a big stage will be HUGE!
(Ding, Ding, Ding)
Kawajai: We start here early with both teams rushing at each other and exchanging blows right off the bat as LOOK OUT! Mike Showman goes ahead and launches Nas out of the ring with a big clothesline near the entrance way! Down goes Nas as Mike rolls out of the ring to add more damage! Meanwhile Aren Mstislav has Jon McAdams in the corner and is delivering blows to the mid section!
WWEFan: Interesting key in this match-up is that they’re two referees assigned with one inside the ring and one outside as of right now. So if things get messy the officials will be able to handle the chaos. Both referees are on high alert watching these brawls for any attempt at a cover.
Kawajai: LOOK OUT! Mike irish whips Nas into the ring post as his skull hits hard and falls to the floor! Look at Mike so proud of himself taunting to the crowd!
Crowd: (no mic) BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
WWEFan: Back in the ring Aren continues to work on Jon as they keep exchanging blows but Mstislav has started to gain the upper hand. AREN IS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG HERE! AREN TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK AND RUSHES TOWARDS JON AND LANDS A BIG ENZIGURI TO THE SKULL OF JON, HE MAY HAVE KNOCKED MCADAMS OUT COLD!
Kawajai: HANG ON! I THOUGHT HE WAS OUT TOO BUT LOOK! JON IS SLOWLY TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT NO WAY! MICHONUKU DRIVER! MICHINOKU DRRRIVVEEERRR! ! WHAT A MOVE BY AREN! AREN PULLING A MOVE FROM HIS VOIN PERSONA THERE! Mike realizes what just happened to his tag team partner and decides to look under the ring for a nice toy! Meanwhile in the ring, Aren is focusing on getting one victory in the books as he goes for the cover!
WWEFan: WAIT! THIS IS GOING TO HURT! STEEL CHAIR RIGHT TO THE BACK FROM MIKE SHOWMAN! AREN IS ROLLING AROUND THE RING IN PAIN AS HE STRUGGLES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! AGAIN?!?
Kawajai: ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT TO AREN THIS TIME TO THE SKULL AS AREN FALLS TO THE CANVAS! Meanwhile outside Jon has rolled to the outside and he and Nas are back to a vertical base. They lock eyes and are trading blows! Nas gets the upper hand, catching a punch by McAdams, kneeing him in the gut and then landing a big suplex on the concrete floor by the entrance ramp! WAIT! WHAT IS NASIR DOING NEXT? NAS IS NOW CLIMBING ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE AS JON IS GETTING BACK UP!
WWEFan: DIVING CROSS BODY ONTO JON AS THEY BOTH FALL TO THE FLOOR!
Mike: (no mic) GET UP! GET UP YOU SON OF A BITCH! YOU WANTED THIS ISSUE RIGHT!? WELL YOU’VE GOT IT! I OWE YOU FOR LAST TIME!
WWEFan: Showman is measuring Aren with that steel chair as he gets back to his feet and gets crushed with the chair across the skull as Aren begins to have blood rushing down his face! MY GOD! THAT CHAIR JUST GOT PRESSED IN OVER AREN’S SKULL! A PERFECT SHOT AT AREN MAY BE OUT! GOODNESS! COVER!
Ring Announcer: People with Class has scored the first fall!
Kawajai: Wow! That steel chair did a lot of damage as Mike Showman and Jon McAdams score the first fall on Aren and Nasir! Aren does the smart thing and rolls out of the ring, but he needs to recover quickly because this is a Falls Count Anywhere match! Medics are coming by and checking on Aren as that wound is NASTY!
WWEFan: Meanwhile Nasir and Jon get back to their feet but come on! Really?!?! A LOW BLOW BY JON MCADAMS! Smart strategy by Jon to take a breather by kicking someone in the nuts right, Kawajai?!?
Kawajai: Yeah……. Sure…..? Anyway Jon takes a moment to recover as he goes back to work on Nasir and throws him in the ring! Oh look what we have here now WWEFan? Aren is still outside bleeding like a pig, and Nasir is all alone with People with Class and Mike still has that steel chair in hand!
WWEFan: The pair are now stomping on a downed Nasir, making sure he can not get up! They kick and they kick, continuing their offense until the fight has been taking out of Nas! They now look at each other with knowing smiles! What do they have in mind here?!? OH NO! PLEASE STOP THIS! THIS IS GOING TO FAR, MIKE IS PLACING THE CHAIR AROUND THE HEAD OF NASIR MOORE! PLEASE DON’T TELL M-
Kawajai: OH MY GOD! WE NEED HELP OUT HERE! A DOUBLE ENZIGURI, TO THE SKULL OF NASIR MOORE AS THE CHAIR IS BENT IN HALF AROUND THE HEAD OF NAS! BLOOD IS POURING DOWN HIS SKULL NOW! NOW LOOK JON AND MIKE ARE TAKING THE BLOOD OF NAS AND AREN AND THEY ARE RUBBING IT ON THEIR CHESTS! LEAVING A MARK OF THEIR DOMINANCE HERE! THESE DUDES ARE SICK! SOMEONE STOP THIS!
WWEFan: HANG ON! AREN FROM BEHIND! AREN PUSHING THE MEDICS ASIDE AND WIPING THE BLOOD AWAY! He’s now back in the ring and he has a baseball bat now?!? WHERE DID HE GET THAT FROM! THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR THE PWC! Aren rushes Jon first and tries to swing the baseball bat but he moves out of the way, Aren turns around and runs into a big boot by Jon! COME ON! THE COMEBACK OF AREN STOPPED AS IT NOW LOOKS LIKE IT IS TIME TO DISSECT! AREN MAY HAVE RE-ENTERED THE MATCH TOO SOON, THOSE CHAIR SHOTS ARE DANGEROUS!
Kawajai: As more blood rushes down Mstislav’s face, Jon and Mike throw Aren outside the ring to the floor as they want to punish Nas as he is still out cold!
WWEFan: One of the officials is taking a look at Nasir as he took the steel chair off of his head and throws it out of the ring. Jon pushes the official aside and tries to cover Nas, the referee looks disgusted and quite frankly so am I!
McAdams: (no mic) COUNT TO THREE, JUST DO IT!
Kawajai: WHAT! HOW DID HE! NASIR KICKED OUT!
WWEFan: LISTEN TO THIS CROWD, THEY ARE ON THEIR FEET! NASIR WILL NOT GIVE UP! ….But the pitbull like mentality stomping down on Nasir but from behind Aren once again back to his feet!
Kawajai: Aren calls for the People With Class! He is here to take a stand! He ducks their advances and then waits for them to turn around! DOUBLE KICK BY AREN TO PEOPLE WITH CLASS AS THEY BOTH FALL TO THE GROUND! Aren uses this moment to recover as he shakes his hand and again wipes away blood. Aren takes the steel chair, AND SLAMS IT ACROSS THE SKULLS OF JON AND MIKE! NOW WHAT IS AREN DOING?!?
WWEFan: Aren is going outside the ring and looking under the squared circle to look for some toys I would assume!?!? Wood is about to get broken?!? NOT ONE BUT TWO TABLES AREN HAS NOW THROWN INTO THE RING BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! OH GOD HIDE YOUR CHILDREN, BARBED WIRED BASEBALL BAT!
Kawajai: Look at those Aren has! Voin is very alive and well tonight here in London! People with Class are getting back to their feet but Aren is now back in the ring with the barbed wire bat and things are about to get ugly people….
WWEFan: Mike Showman is back to his feet and look out, batter up! MIKE GETS SLAMMED ACROSS THE SKULL WITH THE BARBED WIRED BASEBALL BAT, YOU THOUGHT THAT CHAIR SHOT WAS BAD EARLIER?!?! THIS IS WAY WORSE! BLOOD IS ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE AS IT QUICKLY RUSHES DOWN MIKE’S FACE AS HE FALLS TO THE FLOOR! JON, YOU’RE UP!
Kawajai: BATTER UP! ANOTHER HOMERUN HIT BY AREN AS JON FALLS TO THE FLOOR AND BLOOD IS GUSHING DOWN BOTH OF THEIR HEADS! BOTH OF THEM MIGHT HAVE GASHES NOW!
WWEFan: AREN IS NOW GOING TO THE TOP ROPE! WOOZY AND WITH SPAGHETTI LEGS, AREN MSTISLAV IS PERCHED AT THE TOP! 4500000 SPLAASSSHH! RIGHT ON MCADAMS AS HE TRIED TO PULL HIMSELF UP! COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEE! TWO! THREE!
Ring Announcer: The Nas and Mstislav Connection has scored the second fall!
Kawajai: WE ARE IN OVERTIME LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THIS CROWD IS ELECTRIC, JUST LISTEN TO THEM! WE ARE TIED AT ONE FALL A PIECE, ONE FALL TO GO!
WWEFan: Aren goes outside the ring to check on his tag team partner Nas!
Aren: (no mic) NAS! Get up, let’s fini-
Kawajai: WAIT! NAS ACCIDENTLY GAVE A RIGHT HAND TO AREN, AS HE IS STILL TRYING TO WAKE UP FROM THAT ENZIGURI! NAS FINALLY REALIZES WHAT HE DID AND LOOK AT AREN, THE ANGER ON HIS FACE!
WWEFan: I thought they made up! You screwed up this time Nas!
Kawajai: Nas is trying to plead with Aren to calm down and explain to him it was an accident and Aren takes a deep breath and tries to focus his attention People with Class. LOOK OUT!
WWEFan: JON AND MIKE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND TAKEOUT BOTH AREN AND NASIR AS THEY BOTH FALL TO THE FLOOR! BUT WAIT MIKE THROWS NAS! NAS GOES OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD — AND THE SAME THING WITH JON ON AREN AS HE THROWS AREN TO THE CROWD ON THE OTHER SIDE! Both members of People with Class are now in the crowd with the Nas and Mstislav Connection!
Kawajai: Jon is continuing to lay elbows on Aren but he is taking none of them, Aren doing his best to fight the pain! Jon better be worried that the gash on his skull may get a little bigger in a minute as Jon looks scared for his life! Jon runs to the scaffolding and realizes he is almost ten feet in the air and he has nowhere to go! Aren is slowly but surely coming up those stairs to meet Jon up there! Jon is looking for a way down but there isn’t! Jon is trying to throw punches but Aren dodges- and just look at the strength of Aren! He has Jon McAdams up! OH MY GOD PLEASE! AREN IS GOING FOR A SUPLEX AND HE DOES! HOLY SHIT! TEN FEET IN THE AIR TO THE FLOOR AS THEY GO FALLING RIGHT THROUGH OUR PRODUCTION TABLES! BOTH MEN ARE OUT COLD, SOMEONE GET THE EMERGENCY ROOM READY!
Crowd: (no mic) HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
WWEFan: Medical personnel are rushing to the scene as we go to the other side of the crowd where Mike and Nasir are brawling and slowly returning to the ring. IT IS ALL ON THEM NOW AS THE OTHER TWO ARE OUT! Mike has the upper advantage and throws Nasir into the ropes and lands a nice bulldog! Mike is looking for something big right here to end this match and cap off this feud once and for all as he lands an ANDERSON’S DDT! DDT BY SHOWMAN! COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEE…..TWWWWOOOO!……THHHH –
Kawajai: KICKOUT! THE MATCH IS STILL ON! But look at Mike Showman right back on the attack struggling to get Nasir back to his feet! He forces Nas up and weakens him with a shot to the face! Showman grabs Nas by the hand and tries to irish whip him but WAIT! Nas reverses it! Nasir now throws Mike into the corner! Mike Showman hits the corner hard as HERE IT COMES, ETHHHHEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR! WHAT A HELLUVA KICKKKKKKKKKKKK OUT OF NOWHERE! COVER!
(Ding, Ding, Ding!)
(“I Am Electric” by Heaven’s Basement plays over the loudspeaker as the crowd explodes over the carnage they just witnessed….)
Ring Announcer: The winners of this match Aren Mstislav and Nasir Moore…….THE NAS AND MSTISLAV CONNNNNNNNNNNECCCCCCCTIIIIIIIIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!
Kawajai: I don’t even what to say…..WHAT A MATCH!
WWEFan: Stretchers have arrived here at the O2 Arena as officials are still checking on Jon McAdams and Aren Mstislav. I noticed something there honestly, even though there was a bit of an argument, Aren still doing a selfless thing there, taking out McAdams even if it meant he was out of the match himself. Aren putting his faith in Nas and it pays off!
Kawajai: Incredible team work on display by both teams! They went to the limit tonight and in the end, Nasir got the win along with Aren. But People with Class have nothing to ashamed of, they put up a war tonight!
(Advertisement: Check Out A Special Encore Edition of Burning Desire Wednesday On The Fight Network.)
(We return to the O2 Arena.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for one fall!
Fans: Una Caída!
(“My Own Summer” by Deftones play as Carson Ramsay comes out in his signature leather jacket. There’s a mixed reaction amongst the crowd)
RA: First! Making his way to the ring! From Batman, Turkey by way of Boulder City, Nevada! Weighing in at 230lbs! The Man with The Silver Swing…CARSON RAMSAAAAAAY!!!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay looks ready for a fight as always!
Kawajai: Zack Crash spent the past few weeks playing mind games with him! He’s had enough of his antics!
WWEFan: What about the crap Carson has pulled?
Kawajai: Zack’s a nerd. EAW is one giant high school ‘Fan. It’s eat or be eaten!
(Carson climbs into the ring and throws off his jacket as “My Own Summer” dies down.)
RA: And his opponent…
(The lights go black in the arena. A small spotlight shines upon a small, but beautiful woman playing “Four Seasons” on a violin. Another spotlight shines on Zack Crash who comes out, shadowed by his loyal servant Senor JJ.)
Fans: ERASE! ERASE! ERASE!
RA: From The Shattered-verse aka Charleston, West Virginia, weighing in at 225lbs…The Shattered One…ZACK! CRAAAAAAASH!
WWEFan: Determined to spread his own philosophy of enlightenment, Zack Crash sees Ramsay as a roadblock to achieving his true goal of merging EAW with the Shattered-verse!
Kawajai: Hopefully it’s more ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ than ‘New 52’!
WWEFan: What about Rebirth or All-New All Different EAW?
Kawajai: Isn’t that the SJW brand, Empire?
WWEFan: Shots. Fired.
(Zack Crash climbs into the ring as the lights come back on. JJ removes his trench coat and leaves the ring. Carson is glaring at Crash as the ref goes to the middle of the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: The ref calls for the bell to start the match as these two competitors meet in the ring! Carson has his hands up, but Crash is walking towards him is this arms outstretched?
Kawajai: The match barely started and the mind games has already started! The Damaged One has a creepy grin on his face as he stares into Ramsay’s eyes! Carson’s not buying what Zack is selling and delivers several quick jabs to the face! Crash is stunned but is still on his feet! He walks up to Crash STILL GRINNING!
WWEFan: He’s trying to psych him out, Kawajai. He’s sending a message that he can handle whatever Carson Ramsay brings to the table! Carson seems keen on accepting this challenge as he dances around Zack, delivering jab after jab showing off a boxing background with brilliant footwork! The Hall of Famer is taking every hit in stride, to the point of laughing at Ramsay’s attacks! Carson points at Zack and looks at the crowd, laughing in disbelief! Crash waves his hand in response!
Crash: (off mic) ERASE! ERASE! ERASE!
Kawajai: Carson turns to to Crash and ends up on the receiving end of a RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! Ramsay gets back to his feet- ANOTHER RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! Carson needs to mount some kind of offense! Carson ducks a third clothesline, Crash rebounds off the ropes, CARSON WITH THE SPINNING SIDE SLAM! Ramsay’s back in this as he follows up with a grounded headlock! He’s squeezing for extra effort, trying to lower Crash’s stamina.
WWEFan: Sometimes you need to weaken the enemy with rest holds. Carson is no stranger to the mat, as he grappled with technical masters such as Starr Stan! The ref is checking on Crash, who manages to roll out of the hold, gets to his feet- he gets Carson in a headlock of his own as The Defiler of Ordinary gets on one knee. Ramsay has no choice but to be lead to his feet! He’s struggling to get some kind of momentum going! He grabs Crash by the waist and whips him into the corner! Carson charges, but Crash moves out the way- Ramsay jumps off the ring post and CRASH IS STRUCK WITH A WILD HAYMAKER! THE DAMAGED ONE FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES!
Kawajai: Carson’s instincts kicked into high gear as he created some much needed separation between him and Crash! Carson runs to the ropes and- wooooooooooooOOOOOOAH! RAMSAY WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES! HE FLIES INTO ZACK CRASH THE MOMENT HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! One devoted Crash fan is booing Ramsay who simply flips him the bird! That’s just a LITTLE KID! Come on Carson, have more decency- NOW HE’S GIVING ME THE FINGER! The crowd is trying to amp up Zack Crash with their ‘Erase’ chants! Crash is struggling to get back to his feet!
WWEFan: Crash finds himself against the barricade receiving gut punch after gut punch from Ramsay, who’s not letting up! Vicious European Uppercut! Crash is rocked to the core!
WWEFan: Zack Crash finds himself in a tight spot as Ramsay attempts to smash his head against the barricade! Crash starts fighting back! CHOP ACROSS THE CHEST!
WWEFan: ANOTHER ONE!
WWEFan: A THIRD!!
WWEFan: Zack whips Ramsay- HE CRASHES INTO THE STEEL STEPS! PUN INTENDED!
Kawajai: Zack climbs to the apron, as if he’s waiting for the perfect moment to capitalize on his opponent! He needs to pay attention to the referee’s count!
WWEFan: Carson is crawls atop the lopsided stairs, his body in obvious pain! He’s used to taking a severe beating from his opponents, but pain is pain Kawajai!
Kawajai: You make a good point. Carson gets to his feet- MOONSAULT PRESS FROM THE RING APRON BY CRASH! Ramsay’s back smashes into the steel below!
Kawajai: Zack is taking his time getting back up, but manages to roll Carson and himself back into the ring right after the six count! Crash’s risky maneuver may have paid off as he makes the cover-
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!
WWEFan: Kickout by Ramsay! Zack nods his head, as if he knew it would take more than what he did to take him out! He picks Ramsay up and tosses him to the corner. Zack climbs to the second rope! He fires off a barrage of punches!
Crowd: UNO! DOS! TRES! CUARTO! CINCO! SEI-
Kawaji: Carson pushes Zack off! Crash lands on his feet like a cat! Crash charges forward but Ramsay dodges throwing Crash into the corner! Corner forearm smash! Carson follows up with a bulldog! Ramsay’s on fire as he kip-ups, tearing off his wife beater!
WWEFan: Tank top.
WWEFan: Uh…we’re not supposed to say wife beater.
WWEFan: Anyways, Carson waits for Crash to get to his feet! He sets up for the Fateful Eighty Nine Headlock Drive- BACK SUPLEX COUNTER FROM CRASH! SMOOTH TRANSITION TO A SINGLE LEG BOSTON CRAB! THE DAMAGED ONE HAS CARSON RAMSAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! CARSON TRIES TO CRAWL FORWARD BUT CRASH PULLS HIM RIGHT BACK IN THE MIDDLE! CARSON HAS TO THINK FAST! THIS COULD BE THE END FOR HIM!
Kawajai: CARSON USES EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH TO ROLL FORWARD! CRASH IS ON HIS BACK! HE ROLLS OVER- STRAIGHT JACKET CROSSFACE! TYSOB!!!! TAP YOU SON OF A BITCH! It’s ALL OVER! CARSON HAS HIM RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS HIM! HE COULD MAKE ZACK CRASH, LAST YEAR’S HALL OF FAMER TAP IN THIS VERY RING! CRASH IS IN PAIN, SCREAMING FROM THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!
WWEFan: wait! SEÑOR JJ!! CRASH’S LOYAL SERVANT IS ON THE APRON! THE REF MARCHES OVER DEMANDING THAT HE LEAVES THE RING! Carson breaks the hold and charges towards Crash’s servant! A hard bump SENDS JJ FLYING OFF THE APRON! CARSON REBOUNDS TOWARDS CRASH- TOE KICK TO THE GUT FROM CRASH! HE STUMBLES BACK, STILL IN OBVIOUS PAIN!
Kawajai: Carson may have just lost his chance to win this! Wait! Crash is too hurt to continue his assault! Carson’s doubled over, on one knee! ENZUIGIRI FROM CRASH! HE GOES FOR THE COVER-
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREE-
WWEFan: CARSON KICKSOUT LAST SECOND! HE’S STILL IN THIS! CRASH IS FURIOUS! Carson is picked up once more! Crash sets up the unprettier for his grand finale! Carson wiggles out! He kicks Crash in the gut and pulls him in! Suplex from Carson!
WWEFan: As if on cue Carson lifts him up A SECOND TIME! SUPLEX!

WWEFan: SUPLEX NUMBER THREE! UTCH AKADAS! Carson is back on his feet- Signaling the nd- CRASH ROLLS UP RAMSAY! HIS LEGS ARE FLAILING ABOUT AS HE PINS HIS SHOULDERS! HE HAS HIS HANDS ON THE TIGHTS!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEI
Kawajai: CARSON GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: IT’S TOO LATE! JUST HALF A SECOND TOO LATE!
RA: Your winner by pinfall….ZACK! CRAAAAASH!
(“Four Seasons” play as Zack Crash rolls out the ring, behind held by his servant JJ. Carson gets to his feet, yelling at the ref.)
Kawajai: Wow! What a match! Zack takes advantage, using the oldest trick in the book to pull up the tights from the ref’s view to get his victory!
WWEFan: He played his last trump card Kawajai! It was all or nothing- FAITHFUL EIGHTY NINE TO THE REF! CARSON JUST DID HIS SIGNATURE HEADLOCK DRIVER TO AN EAW OFFICIAL!
(Carson climbs out the ring as multiple officials make their way to check on the ref. Carson climbs the barricade, walking out the arena in frustration.)
Kawajai: Where is he going?
WWEFan: With any luck, to the nearest bar to calm himself down!
Kawajai: Let’s hope he’s not the angry drunk type…
(LIVE PERFORMANCE: Derek Lewars Takes The Stage To Perform Voltage’s Official Theme: “Know My Name”!)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is a No Disqualification match scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: …ONE FALL!
(The lights in the arena shut off suddenly, and just a moment later, “Heart-Shaped Box” — Nirvana begins to play, prompting the audience to boo loudly. A single spotlight shines down on Solomon Caine as he walks briskly toward the ring with his signature black towel draped over his head. He rolls under the bottom rope and makes a beeline for one of the corners, where he leans back and grits his teeth, staring at the ramp intently.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first! From Parts Unknown, weighing in at 240 pounds…SOLOMONNNNNNNN CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINE!
WWEFan: Solomon Caine might not be in the best mood after last week. Sure, he managed to score a win over Mike Showman, but he didn’t exactly have the most productive conversation with HRDO.
Kawajai: To be fair, this match came from that whole interaction, but I know what you meant. It seemed like Caine was trying to make it sound like HRDO was somehow disrespecting or writing off the Sanatorium. Even worse, he accused him of being scared of Eclipse Diemos.
(The camera transitions backstage briefly where HRDO is seen looking on as Caine makes his entrance.)
WWEFan: Speak of the devil! In any case, for Caine’s troubles, now he has to do battle with his Sanatorium brother, Maero. These two are products of one of the most bloodthirsty stables in EAW history. HRDO turned them loose with no rules and a promise from him that the winner will be well on their way up the Voltage ladder to bigger and better things. I expect things to get very interesting.
Kawajai: Or nasty.
(“Megalovania” hits, and the lights in the arena remain dark. Red and blue lighting pick up, flashing all around the arena before a piercing scream tears over the PA system. The song transitions to “Hellraiser” — Ibenji, and Maero emerges on the stage, bathed in a single red spotlight. He dons his signature blood-stained mask and scrubs. Maero makes his way into the ring, where he wrenches a lighter from his pocket, lighting the paper-thin scrubs on fire and leaving only the ring gear that was underneath. He then shoves the lighter into his boot.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent! From Sydney, Australia, weighing in at 175 pounds…“The Priest of Life” MMMMMAAAAAAAAEEEEERRRRRRROOOOOOOOOO!
WWEFan: Here he is, the former Hardcore Champion! The fact that Caine is pretty damn unhinged might mean that he’ll feel at home in this environment, but we KNOW that Maero can more than hold his own. Matches like this are right up his alley. This is where he thrives, and I don’t think the fact that he’s tangling with his “brother” will hold him back tonight.
Kawajai: Momentum is a valuable thing. The winner of this match will certainly have it if HRDO’s statements from last week were anything to go by. Normally, these two work together and would never hurt each other, but they both have a pretty interesting prospect being dangled in front of their face right now. I’m not saying they’ll try to kill each other, but the stakes might make them do things they normally wouldn’t.
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: No sooner than the bell’s rung is Caine charging right at Maero! So much for blood being thicker than water! Caine absolutely FLOORS Maero with a running double axe handle to the face, flattening him! Maero is blinking and shaking his head, trying to get his bearings back but Caine stays on him. Caine grabs two handfuls of Maero’s hair to yank him to his feet. GOODNESS! He nails Maero with a hell of a headbutt and it’s a miracle Maero’s not sporting a bloody nose right about now! Caine reels Maero back in and Irish whips him into the ropes and catches him with an EMPHATIC knee lift to the midsection when he rebounds! Solomon drops down to try and cover Maero — with a forearm across the face, no less — but he wriggles out of position for the cover before the official can even drop down to count.
Kawajai: Caine is normally pretty relentless to begin with, but he’s kicked it into another gear since the bell rang. He gets up to his feet pretty quickly after the cover, yanking Maero up along with him. OH! A close-fisted shot to the smaller man! And another! And another…we got blood already, Maero’s been busted open! Maero’s pawing at the cut on his forehead!
Solomon Caine (no mic): It’s just business, brother! I’m sure you get it.
Kawajai: A KICK TO THE KNEE FROM MAERO! Oh, he gets it alright! With Solomon hobbled momentarily, Maero starts to wear down the other leg with stiff shoot kicks to the thigh. Solomon drops down to a kneeling position, and Maero nails him with a THUNDEROUS implant DDT! He rolls him over! Cover!
WWEFan: Caine powers out just after one! I’m sure the impact from that DDT rung his bell, but it’ll take a lot more than that to put him away. Both men get back to a vertical base and Caine immediately swings for a haymaker! He misses! Maero had ample time to get out of the way and he ducks underneath it! He takes a few steps back before catching Caine with a running front dropkick to the chest, which sends him flying back into the ropes! Maero rushes in with a clothesline next, sending Caine tumbling over the top rope and down onto the arena floor with a loud thud! That hurt, no doubt, but Caine is already trying to ignore the pain and drag himself back to his feet with the aid of the ring apron. Maero is eyeing him, both hands latched onto the top rope. What’s he got in mind? Caine gets steady on his feet, and Maero launches himself over the top rope…SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY TO THE OUTSIDE…!
Kawajai: …NO! CAINE DEMONSTRATING A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF STRENGTH AND SNATCHING MAERO OUT OF THE AIR MID-MANEUVER BEFORE FLINGING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE BACK-FIRST! Holy spinal injury, Batman! Somebody call a chiropractor. Maero is writhing in pain on the floor. Caine shoves Maero onto his back before promptly dropping a standing elbow drop right into the center of his chest. He stands and plucks Maero from the floor. Caine places both hands on the back of Maero’s head before slamming him face-first into the top of the barricade! The cut to the forehead came first, and this certainly won’t help matters! Caine isn’t done yet, either. He rips Maero away from the barricade and uses a battering ram to drive him back-first into the edge of the ring apron! Pain flickers across Maero’s face before he slumps down to a seated position against the apron. I know this is a man who’s been through some pretty rough matches in his EAW tenure, but his stablemate Caine is really putting him through the wringer!
WWEFan: Uh oh, what’s Caine got in mind now? He’s rifling around underneath the ring skirt, and something tells me things are about to get a hell of a lot more interesting. OH, NOW IT’S A PARTY! SOLOMON BROUGHT OUT THE BARBED-WIRE COVERED STEEL CHAIR! Maero is bringing himself back up to his feet but Caine is sizing him up! CAINE SWINGS FOR THE FENCES…!
Kawajai: IN THE NICK OF TIME, MAERO AVERTS DISASTER! Solomon swings the chair and catches nothing but ring apron when he does! He turns around to give it another go…JESUS! MAERO BIG BOOTS THE CHAIR RIGHT INTO CAINE’S FACE! SOLOMON IS DOWN, AND UNDERSTANDABLY SO! CAINE’S FACE IS LITTERED WITH CUTS AFTER COLLIDING WITH THE CHAIR, AND NOW HE’S BLEEDING, TOO!
Maero (no mic): GET UP, SOLOMON!
WWEFan: Why the hell wouldn’t Maero grab the chair?!?! He’s shouting now and gesturing for his bleeding Sanatorium brother to get back to his feet. He eyes Caine, who is pulling himself up using the barricade. Hey! Maero snatches a drink from one of the fans in the front row! And…that dude looks pretty loaded, so I’m 99.9% sure there’s alcohol in that cup. Maero is chugging whatever it is now! Stop it, you don’t know where that guy’s mouth has been! He’s holding it in his mouth and he’s wrenching that lighter from his boot. What is he…?
Kawajai: I don’t know, but he’d better figure it out quick, because Caine has shaken out the cobwebs and he’s heading right for him! Maero flicks the lighter a couple times and strikes a flame! He spits the drink…FLAMING COCKTAIL RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF SOLOMON CAINE! CAINE STOPPED RIGHT IN HIS TRACKS AND IS PAWING AT HIS HEAD AND NECK AREA TO KEEP HIS HAIR FROM BEING SINGED! It looks like he’s been able to keep it from possibly turning into a disastrous situation but Maero isn’t backing off. He grabs ahold of the still-panicked Caine’s arm and reels him in…ANESTHETIC! A SICK-LOOKING RIPCORD ELBOW TO THE FACE DROPS CAINE! Maero’s got a real shot at ending this now, but he can’t do it without Caine in the ring! He grabs the much-larger Solomon by the hem of his tights and heaves him up onto the ring apron before rolling him under the bottom rope. Maero follows suit, rolling into the ring and scrambling into the cover! He hooks the leg!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOO! TH–
WWEFan: NOPE! Not even a heinous combination of fire and barbed wire can keep Solomon Caine down and out long enough for Maero to put him away! The look on Maero’s face tells me he isn’t surprised, though. Like we’ve been stating since the beginning, these men are from the Sanatorium; hellacious matches like these are essentially their home turf. Maero exits the ring once more and stoops down to reach underneath the ring skirt. HE PULLS OUT THE TABLE! This London crowd on hand is losing their minds now! They know the ante has just been upped a little bit! Maero slides the table under the bottom rope and then re-enters the ring. Caine is stirring but it looks like Maero might have ample time to finish setting up the table. LOOK OUT! Caine comes rushing in and LEVELS Maero with a Lariat! Maero might have had his back turned for a bit too long! Caine hunches over to yank Maero to his feet, but Maero sends him staggering backwards with a couple of forceful body blows! Maero steps out onto the ring apron before grabbing onto the top rope and launching himself back into the ring…SPRINGBOARD VARIATION OF THE OVERDOSE! HE’S LOOKING FOR A SPRINGBOARD HURRICANRANA!
Kawajai: …NO! CAINE CATCHES MAERO! HE EXECUTES A POWERBOMB, PUTTING MAERO THROUGH THE TABLE THAT HE SET UP! MAERO’S CRUMPLED BODY IS LAID ON TOP OF THE REMAINS OF THAT TABLE, AND HE’S NOT MOVING! CAINE HOOKS THE LEG! THIS ONE’S GOTTA BE OVER AND DONE WITH!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE—-
WWEFan: WHAT THE HELL? MAERO GETS HIS SHOULDER UP, AND NO ONE IS MORE SURPRISED THAN CAINE! HE’S HOLDING UP THREE FINGERS, ARGUING WITH THE OFFICIAL TO TELL HIM THAT WAS THE END, BUT MAERO JUST BARELY MANAGED TO KEEP THIS ONE GOING! Solomon gets to his feet and stares down at Maero with his head tilted to the side as if to ask, “What do I have to do now?” Caine exits the ring to retrieve his barbed wire-wrapped steel chair and this crowd is buzzing. Like I do, they probably predict that things are about to get a lot worse for Maero! Maero is showing signs of life, rolling away from the wrecked table and onto his stomach, pulling himself up to a kneeling position.
Kawajai: GOOD LORD! CAINE WHACKS MAERO IN THE BACK WITH THAT CHAIR! Maero falls stomach-first onto the canvas, screaming in pain! He tries to pull himself up onto all fours, but Caine fires away with ANOTHER chair shot to the back! Caine tosses the chair aside and plucks Maero from the mat, heaving him up into position for a powerslam. Caine gets a running start…HE PLANTS MAERO BACK-FIRST ONTO THE WAITING BARBED WIRE-WRAPPED STEEL CHAIR WITH A RUNNING POWERSLAM! FUCKING HELL! He grabs Maero by an ankle and quickly drags him off of the chair, no doubt cutting up his back and shoulders even more in the process. Caine drops down to cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE–
WWEFan: WE’RE. NOT. FINISHED! Maero manages to throw that shoulder up just before that three-count concluded! I don’t know which one of these men is going to bring this one home, but at the end of this, I hope they’re both content knowing they’ve both been putting up a hell of a fight since the bell rang! Caine’s out of the ring again, fishing around under the ring skirt…and this time HE is the one that pulls out a table and slides it into the ring! Once he’s back in the ring, Solomon sets the table up by standing it up in a leaning position in the corner. He turns back to Maero, pulling him up from the canvas and Irish whipping him into the corner with the table!
Kawajai: Or not! Maero plants his foot and pivots, using Solomon’s momentum against him and sending Caine hurtling into the corner instead! The bigger man smacks face-first into the table! Maero charges in right after him…PULSE CHECK! THAT MUSHROOM STOMP VARIATION DRIVES CAINE THROUGH THE TABLE AND RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BENEATH! AN ABSOLUTELY SICKENING CRACK EMANATED FROM THE SOUND OF THE TABLE BREAKING ON IMPACT! MAERO DRAGS CAINE AWAY FROM THE DEBRIS AND ROLLS HIM ONTO HIS BACK! HE HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE–
WWEFan: NOOOOOOOOPE! Caine kicks out at the last possible second, albeit weakly! Maero rolls away from the failed pin attempt, and the look on his face tells me he’s pondering what to do next. Oh man, he’s going to pick up Solomon’s discarded barbed wire steel chair! HE’S–nevermind, he’s laying the chair across the chest and midsection of Caine, who’s still lying face-up on the mat. The crowd starts to buzz as Maero makes his way to the corner and scales the turnbuckles! He’s perched on the top rope, and this entire audience is on their feet! MAERO LEAPS!
WWEFan: YES, CLEAR! MAERO NAILS THAT DIVING MOONSAULT DOUBLE-FOOT STOMP RIGHT INTO THAT CHAIR, DRIVING THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR INTO SOLOMON CAINE! HOLY HELL! MAERO SCRAMBLES INTO THE COVER! HE’S GOT BOTH LEGS HOOKED! THE OFFICIAL DROPS DOWN TO COUNT!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE–
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Hellraiser” hits once more to a thunderous mixed reaction as a tired, bloodied Maero rolls away from the match-ending pin. He looks over at Solomon before being helped to his feet by the referee, who raises his hand.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner…MMMMMAAAAAAAAEEEEERRRRRRROOOOOOOOOO!
Kawajai: I’d say this win for the Priest of Life was hard-fought, but that almost doesn’t do it justice! These two teammates threw everything but the kitchen sink at each other! Honestly, if throwing kitchen sinks at people wasn’t Nasir Moore’s thing, I’m sure one of these guys would’ve done that in this match, too.
WWEFan: Even with no real bad blood between these two, we saw Maero and Caine unveil tables, barbed wire-wrapped steel chairs, and flaming drinks!
(Backstage, HRDO is briefly shown again, looking on intently as Maero’s hand is raised post-match.)
Kawajai: There he is, the man who orchestrated all of this. You have to wonder what HRDO will have to say regarding this match on the next episode of Voltage.
(Maero helps Solomon to his feet as EMTs begin filing down the ramp to check on both me. Once Solomon stands, he and Maero exchange a glance, but neither man says anything as the shot fades elsewhere.)
(10 MINUTE INTERMISSION.)
(We make our way back to ringside as fans are getting settled back in from intermission. The camera momentarily focuses on an aisle in the audience as security is beginning to come down. Upon a close up we see that they are escorting HRDO to the front row, where he sits at a specially reserved seat ready to watch the match.)
WWEFan: It is now time for the match you all have been waiting for folks! Drastik and Eclipse 2, our main event of the evening is next!
Kawajai: I can not wait for this and neither can the people in attendance! You know things are about to get crazy when even HRDO wants to see it up close! Let us have our ring announcer take it away!
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for….THE EAW CHAAAMMMPIOOOONNNSHHHIPPPPP!!!!
(The lights go out in the arena and echoing footsteps can be heard. The titantron flicks on as splashes of blood coat the screen, and a loud laugh echoes around the arena. The lights continue to flicker, flashing red before shutting off once again, this time with a loud pop.)
???: Mary Ann Nichols. Annie Chapman.
(As the names are said by a deep voiced man, images of the victims flash on the screen, as blood continues to coat it.)
???: Elizabeth Stride. Catherine Eddowes.
(As the next two images flash the screen displays a single lantern, in the middle of a bloodied alleyway, as smoke begins to circle around it. The lantern dims out, until only a single flame can be seen.)
???: Mary Jane Kelly.
(The last victim can be seen racing through the streets. She stops in front of the lantern, breathing hard before turning back and letting out a scream as the lights go out once again.)
“YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE…MY ONLY SUNSHINE…”
(“You Are My Sunshine” by ALONE hits as Eclipse calmly walks out, holding the blood soaked lantern in front of him. Behind him he drags the ‘body’ of Mary Jane Kelly, a knife embedded in her skull. He blows out the lantern, setting it down onto the ground before leaning and yanking the blade out of the skull of the ‘victim’ before roaring to the sky, the ramp bursting with pyro.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Prescott Hills Sanatorium, Arizona, weighing in at 286 pounds…..he is “Fear Incarnate”……EECCCCCCCCLLLIIIIPPPPSSSSEEEE DIEEEEEEMOOOOSSSS!!!
WWEFan: Talk about a way to make an entrance! Eclipse Diemos has arrived and is looking better than ever this evening. Eclipse Diemos is focused on his goal and that is regaining the EAW Championship! These past few weeks since losing the title we have seen an intensity in Eclipse that we have not seen in a long time. He is experiencing something that many former Champions do, once you have that feeling of being at the top of the mountain, you will do whatever you can to have that feeling again. Eclipse Diemos longs for that feeling and he already shown it does not matter what type of action he must take in order to get there.
(The lights in the arena go out as “Adventures” by Kid Cudi begins to play, but for some reason sounding oddly different this time around. Lights flicker on the stage and we can now see that the theme is being played live for the audience. As the opening verse is going on, suddenly we begin to notice someone rising up from the stage next to him. Drastik steps out from the elevated platform in a specially designed red and white attire, his coat having the words “6 Time World Champion” designed into the back of it.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, the champion, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 225 pounds, he is our EAW Champion……DRAAAAASSSSTIIIKKKKKKKK!!!
Kawajai: The Champion is here! His confidence has definitely went up some since Grand Rampage! Drastik now knows he can compete at the level that he once was, he knows he can be a champion! Drastik is now owning everything and willing to go to bat for himself as a proven success. The way he sees it, he’s beat Eclipse Diemos before, he can do it again. This match right here, it’s just to prove to the world his legitimacy for those who still hang on to the idea that he does not belong anymore.
(Both men are now in the ring as Drastik passes his EAW Championship to the referee. The referee raises it up high and then hands it to the ring announcer to take to the time keeper’s area before signaling for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: This match is underway and both men run out of their corners and meet up in the center of the ring! Drastik shoots low and goes for a takedown, dropping Eclipse Diemos down onto his back as he is now on top of him in a mount, teeing off with those MMA like strikes to the head! Eclipse Diemos just eating those shots though as he grabs Drastik and turns him over so now he is the one in the dominant position, and instead of closed fists, Eclipse Diemos decides to go for clubbing forearms! Look at that wind back, the hesitation behind each shot as he then drops down with force for those heavy hits! Drastik putting his hands up to cover while Eclipse switches it up to backfists! Drastik begins to turn over as Eclipse Diemos bangs his fists over the body of Drastik, smashing into him like a gorilla! The referee urges Eclipse Diemos to calm down as Eclipse roughly lifts up our EAW Champion in a waist lock!
Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos wants to try for a deadlift German but Drastik stops him with a sharp elbow to the chin before slipping out of the waist lock, getting past Eclipse Diemos and grabbing him by the arm, smacking him in the back of the head! Drastik showing blatant disrespect as Eclipse Diemos snaps at him with a hard clothesline! Drastik drops as he starts to back away, trying to escape from Eclipse Diemos but Eclipse shoots straight for him! Eclipse stomping on Drastik and Drastik pulls himself into the ropes to catch a break! The referee now HAS to break this up as he gets between the two! Eclipse Diemos is yelling for Drastik to drop the rope break and fight! Drastik takes his time in obliging, stepping out but then side stepping Eclipse Diemos when he charges at him!
WWEFan: Eclipse Diemos goes bouncing off of the ropes right into a knife edged chop! Eclipse Diemos brushes that right off, grabs Drastik by the back of his neck and then tosses him in the corner, beating him down! Knees to the face! Punches to the back! Drastik firing back to try and get himself out of this hole as the two fall over again on the ground in a mess of fists being traded! They have to cut it out and get to their feet as it is now back to square one for both competitors! I don’t think we have seen a single real move so far, these guys have just been duking it out! That appears to change though as Drastik bypasses Eclipse Diemos by sliding through the legs and then getting behind him! Swings with a kick! Eclipse gets under it and wishes to lift Drastik up onto his shoulders! Drastik counters though!
Kawajai: DRASTIK SWITCHES AROUND AND PERFORMS A HURRICANRANA DRIVER! Eclipse Diemos just got spiked as he begins to roll away while holding his neck, Drastik though jumps over him and then blocks any escape to that side of the ring, he does not want Eclipse to get any breathers! Eclipse Diemos looks up at Drastik and receives an elbow smash to the top of the head! That rocks the big man but he won’t drop just yet! SUPERKICK! WAIT! NO! Eclipse Diemos catches it! An enzuigiri to the side of the head though frees Drastik! Eclipse Diemos staggers back in a daze as Drastik now looks to go for a follow up! He advances toward Eclipse!
WWEFan: But Eclipse Diemos shakes the cobwebs and is then able to telegraph his attempt! He grabs Drastik and uses his own momentum against him for a scoop slam! That was a hard slam there! Eclipse Diemos now gets up and then takes a few steps away from Drastik….and comes back for a senton, crashing into the chest of Drastik! Eclipse Diemos now turns over and hooks the leg! We have a cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO —
WWEFan: Our EAW Champion kicks out! It is too early to put him away, you have to think Eclipse Diemos would know that with how experienced he is, perhaps he was more so trying to tire out Drastik, the effort to kick out of those pins can be exhausting over time. It appears he might be continuing that strategy of wearing out Drastik, Eclipse Diemos places Drastik in a headlock and forces him up to his feet! Drastik is struggling to get out, pushing, pulling, throwing punches Eclipse Diemos’ way but Diemos stands firm and does not let go!
Kawajai: Drastik places his hands on the side of Eclipse’s tights, grips them for leverage and begins to attempt to lift him up! Could he be looking to go for a back suplex here? We may not find out as Eclipse Diemos is doing his best to weigh himself back down! Drastik will not give up, he lifts again! He has Eclipse Diemos up in the air, but he’s not going for a back suplex, he places the legs of Eclipse Diemos over the ropes in the corner! Eclipse Diemos is hanging upside down in the tree of woe! Eclipse Diemos is helpless as Drastik sprints towards him AND CATCHES HIM IN THE FACE WITH A DROPKICK! THE SOUND OF HIS BOOT CONNECTING TO DIEMOS’ JAW WAS SOMETHING ELSE! Drastik isn’t finished yet either, Eclipse Diemos is still hanging there, eyes glazed over, practically a sitting duck for Drastik to make his move! Drastik gets close and digs his boot into the gut of Eclipse!
WWEFan: A superkick to the ribs right after! Eclipse Diemos is left sucking air while Drastik continues to work him over! Drastik is now getting on the second rope, falling back down to catch Eclipse in the jaw with a stomp! Drastik is not done either! Drastik scaling up to the second rope again, but he’s not stopping there! Drastik is going to the top rope above Diemos! Drastik trying to position himself good with what little space he has due to Eclipse’s legs — hold on! Eclipse Diemos sitting up! Eclipse Diemos reaches out and gets Drastik in a waist lock! GERMAN SUPLEX DELIVERED FROM THE TREE OF WOE! DRASTIK GOES FLYING FROM THE TOP ROPE AND DROPS RIGHT ON HIS NECK! THE SPIDER GERMAN DELIVERED WITH PERFECTION THERE, QUICK THINKING BEING SHOWN BY THE CHALLENGER!
Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos is now trying to lift up his upper body even further, keeping his legs hanging on the top rope as he looks to sit at the top! Eclipse Diemos bringing himself up and then scooting into a comfortable position! Eclipse Diemos now turns around and stands himself up! Uh oh! That is an almost three hundred pound man standing from the top rope! Eclipse Diemos is way up high while Drastik is still laying on the ground, recovering from the spider German! Eclipse Diemos is perched….AND HE LEAPS OFF! ECLIPSE DIEMOS WITH A HIGH IMPACT SPLASH RIGHT ON TOP OF DRASTIK! ECLIPSE DIEMOS DAMN NEAR PUTTING DRASTIK THROUGH THE RING WITH THAT DIVE AS HE NOW HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……..THRRR —
WWEFan: KICK OUT BY DRASTIK! Eclipse Diemos wastes no time in transitioning into his next move once he figures out the champion was not put away! Eclipse Diemos turns Drastik over, places him between his knees and then brings him up high so he can PLANT him with a sitout powerbomb! Eclipse Diemos puts his hands on Drastik’s chest, looking to go for his third cover but Drastik positions his shoulder off of the mat before the referee can even get down and count. Eclipse Diemos then decides to keep ahold of Drastik’s legs and then flip over so that he’s sitting on Drastik’s back! Eclipse Diemos is getting Drastik into a Boston crab just like he did at Grand Rampage, trying to take out a good amount of Drastik’s offense! Eclipse Diemos is applying that submission hold well, wrenching on it and pulling back as hard as he can!
Kawajai: Look at the way the back of Drastik’s is beginning to bend! That is not natural! Eclipse Diemos is twisting up those legs as hard as he can, Drastik is yelling in pain but doing whatever he can to not submit, he will not give up here! Eclipse is pulling back even further now as this might just be crossing over into the liontamer variation! Drastik is pushing back now, doing whatever he can to fight this! The longer he is in this hold the more damage will be done to this legs! Eclipse Diemos is changing his positioning, digging one of his knees into the lower back of our EAW Champion while leaving the other foot placed on the canvas! Drastik puts an arm up, will we have a submission?
WWEFan: Drastik is twisting his body around, reaching out for the leg of Diemos! Drastik wanting to pry Diemos off! Drastik is pushing Eclipse Diemos off of him! Diemos loses his balance and falls forward while looking to maintain the submission! Drastik finally kicks him off and he is FREE! Eclipse Diemos puts his hands up to keep from falling on his face and the scramble to get back to their feet begins! Drastik is hurting from how long he was in the Boston crab and so is taking more time to get back up. He turns to look at Eclipse Diemos, and Eclipse uses his speed advantage to run Drastik over with a crossbody! Eclipse Diemos colliding into Drastik like a freight train!
Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos leans in looking to grab Drastik as Drastik feebly reaches out to Eclipse Diemos, wanting to try for a jaw breaker, but Eclipse Diemos stops him from doing so and in one swift motion turns him over to sling him onto his shoulder! Eclipse Diemos SLAMS Drastik into the turnbuckles and then makes a mad dash into the center of the ring! POWERSLAM! Eclipse Diemos is just playing with Drastik now, he lays there, waiting for Drastik to get back to his feet after that! This has been all Diemos these past few minutes, you have to think if it keeps going like this Eclipse will be able to wrap it up soon! Eclipse Diemos has Drastik lined up in his sights, watching him intently while he stirs!
WWEFan: Drastik has his back turned to Eclipse Diemos, the challenger is out of sight and out of mind right now, he’s just worrying about getting his head back into the game and OH NO! ROOM 13! ROOM 13 BIG BOOT! WAIT A MINUTE! DRASTIK DROPS DOWN TO AVOID IT! Drastik then kips up behind him! NECKBREAKER BY DRASTIK! Drastik has found his second wind in this match, he might just be in this again! Drastik gets up around the same time Eclipse does, he make sures to keep Eclipse from getting back onto a vertical base with a spinning heel kick! After that he picks up some speed – SHINING WIZARD! IT CONNECTS ACROSS THE FACE OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS!
Kawajai: It is enough to send Eclipse Diemos rolling out of the ring! This is Drastik’s chance, he can start building up some offense! Eclipse Diemos gets up to his feet in confusion, looking around before settling his focus back on Drastik! Eclipse Diemos hops on the apron but then there goes Drastik! BASEBALL SLIDE THROUGH THE LEGS, DROPPING ECLIPSE DOWN AND FORCING HIM TO FALL FACE FIRST ONTO THE APRON! Eclipse Diemos swings wildly now as Drastik avoids his shots, gets past him, whips him around and then places him in a front facelock, BEFORE RUNNING UP HIS SURROUNDINGS, GUIDING ECLIPSE DIEMOS AROUND FOR A TORNADO DDT ONTO THE FLOOR! And with that, Drastik goes under the bottom rope and right back into the ring! Is he going for a countout victory?
WWEFan: I don’t think so! The referee went to start up the ten count but Drastik halted him! Drastik has something else in mind! Drastik sees Eclipse Diemos pull himself up and so begins gripping the ropes! OH! Drastik springboards up to the top rope, balances himself, and then bounces up into the air FOR A SHOOTING STAR PRESS RIGHT ON TOP OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS! DRASTIK FALLING DOWN UPON HIM LIKE A METEOR AND TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE AWE OF THE CROWD! Drastik shoots up and is now pounding on our announce table, he is hyped up, he is ready to get back into this as he stands on top of the table and shouts out to the audience!
Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos gets on his knees and creeps behind Drastik while he is standing on to the table, pulling Drastik by his ankle and tripping him over and then dragging him off as our monitors going down with it! A messy fall there as Eclipse Diemos has Drastik and SWINGS HIM INTO THE SIDE OF OUR TABLE! ECLIPSE NEARLY CRACKING THE SIDE OF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE WITH DRASTIK’S BODY! Drastik is slumped over covering himself as Eclipse pulls him up AND THEN SLAMS HIM DOWN FACE FIRST ONTO THE TABLE! WAIT, NO! DRASTIK BLOCKS IT! ELBOW TO THE STERNUM OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS TO GET HIM TO BACK OFF! Drastik grabs Eclipse Diemos, slings his arm over the back of his neck! Woah, woah, WOAH!
WWEFan: ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS LIFTED UP AND THROWN THROUGH OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE WITH A BACK SUPLEX! DRASTIK SHOWING GREAT STRENGTH AS THE TABLE JUST EXPLODED UPON THE TWO OF THEM CRASHING DOWN! DRASTIK DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES TO KEEP THE TABLE TURNED IN HIS FAVOR! DRASTIK WON’T EVEN REST, HE GETS RIGHT ON TOP OF THE FALLEN ECLIPSE DIEMOS AND IS HAMMERING AWAY, PUNCHING, SCRATCHING, CHOKING, SLAMMING ECLIPSE DIEMOS’ HEAD UP AND DOWN AGAINST THE CONCRETE! HRDO IS GETTING UP AND SHOUTING AT THE REFEREE, TELLING HIM TO ENFORCE THE RULES HERE AS THE REFEREE NOW BEGINS TO SIGNAL FOR THEM TO HEAD BACK!
Kawajai: Drastik grabs Eclipse Diemos by the hand and pulls him up, bringing him up onto his shoulders in a fireman’s carry! The referee is urging him as he begins a count! Drastik does not want to settle for a count out defense it appears, he wants the satisfaction of pinning Diemos! He tosses Eclipse Diemos between the middle and top rope, getting him into the ring! Drastik takes a second to rest, feeling the strain from his hurting legs, his injured back, the beating he has taken throughout this match, but now there is a hope that he can wrap it up! Drastik steps up onto the apron and stops Diemos from lifting himself off of the mat — HE SHOOTS THROUGH THE ROPES DOWN INTO DIEMOS WITH A TAKEDOWN!
WWEFan: Immediately after he rolls through and gets onto his feet, stepping forward into the corner as he shoots up to the top rope! Hey, Drastik almost ended up falling over for a second with that sudden movement, he still is a bit shaky, he is tired out but he wants this! Eclipse Diemos lays there, still on the mat from Drastik shooting into him, he is going to have a difficult time getting up as meanwhile Drastik is perfectly set up! Drastik stands up straight….AND THEN HE GOES OFF OF THE TOP FOR THE STIGMATA! CORKSCREW MOONSAULT ONTO THE BODY OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS CONNECTS! DRASTIK HOLDING HIS RIBS, ROLLING AROUND IN PAIN AS HE PUT HIS ALL INTO THAT MANEUVER! HE ROLLS BACK ONTO ECLIPSE DIEMOS AND HE HOOKS THE LEG! THE REFEREE COUNTS!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO………THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai: KICKOUT BY ECLIPSE DIEMOS! THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH! ECLIPSE AND DRASTIK LAY ON THE GROUND, EXHAUSTED! DRASTIK IS PUSHING HIMSELF UP ON THE BODY OF ECLIPSE! KNEE AFTER KNEE! AGAIN AND AGAIN KNOCKING THE WIND OUT OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS! DRASTIK MOVES TO THE TOP OF THE BODY, LOOKING TO MOVE ON INTO A FRONT CHANCERY! ECLIPSE DIEMOS COUNTERS WITH A GATOR ROLL TO EVADE IT!
WWEFan: Eclipse Diemos shaking Drastik off as both men lay on their chests, looking across from each other! They get to a knee in unison! Drastik is the first to fully be on his feet in the race! He grabs at Diemos! BUT DIEMOS TAKES HIM ABACK WITH A THROAT THRUST! Drastik is then hit with a spinebuster! Eclipse Diemos looking to catapult Drastik across the ring now! Drastik is slingshotted! BUT HE SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES TO SAVE HIMSELF, FLYING DIRECTLY —
Kawajai:…..INTO A ROOM 13 BIG BOOT BY ECLIPSE DIEMOS! DRASTIK RUNNING FULL FORCE INTO THAT BIG BOOT OUT OF NOWHERE! ECLIPSE DIEMOS GETS ON TOP OF DRASTIK AND NOW HOOKS BOTH LEGS! THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN! THIS COULD BE IT, WE MAY HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE….
Kawajai: Drastik gets his foot on the bottom rope! Drastik didn’t even have the energy to break the count there, that one move of his leg has saved this match! Eclipse Diemos rolls over, looks into the sky and just starts laughing! Eclipse is doing his best to keep his cool but he may have just gone off the deep end! Eclipse Diemos get on fours and crawls backward halfway across the ring so he can stalk Drastik from afar! Eclipse Diemos is watching Drastik reach for the ropes and drag himself to a vertical base! Eclipse Diemos rises with him and moves around, making sure to keep himself in Drastik’s blindside! The referee is checking on Drastik’s status, asking him if he’s ok as Drastik waves him off and turns around; GLASGOW SMILE! ECLIPSE WITH THE DISCUS!
WWEFan: DRASTIK MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! DRASTIK GOT OUT OF DODGE AND ECLIPSE DIEMOS JUST LAID OUT THE REFEREE! OUR OFFICIAL IS DOWN AS ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS TOO DISTRACTED BY THAT TO NOTICE DRASTIK! AN ATTACK FROM BEHIND! FLYING FOREARM RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! ECLIPSE DIEMOS FALLS OVER AS DRASTIK SMELLS THE BLOOD IN THE WATER! DRASTIK TEARS AT THE SHIRT OF ECLIPSE AND CHOPS HIM RIGHT IN THE CHEST! A SERIES OF CHOPS, BEATING AT THE EXPOSED CHEST OF DIEMOS AND TURNING IT RAW AND RED WHILE DIEMOS IS PRESSED UP AGAINST THE ROPES! Drastik now takes a moment to take his hand AND SMACK ECLIPSE DIEMOS RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! WOAH! ECLIPSE’S EYES JUST WIDENED!
Kawajai: That woke him up! Eclipse Diemos grabs Drastik by the neck and pushes him down! SPEAR TO DRASTIK! DRASTIK IS DOWN BUT AGAIN, THE REF IS STILL OUT! Eclipse sees HRDO having made his way to the side of the ring checking on the ref as it looks like the referee might take a while, that was a three hundred pound Elitist knocking him on his head, that’s hard to come back from! Eclipse sees there is time as he rolls out of the ring and makes his way to the time keeper’s area, FOLDING UP A STEEL CHAIR! Eclipse is about to do something he’s wanted to do for quite a while! Eclipse Diemos gets back into the ring, steel chair in hand, standing over Drastik! Eclipse pats the chair on the ground and hears a good, solid smack! He’s ready to swing! He pulls up the steel chair and takes his shot!
WWEFan: NO! HRDO! HRDO rolls into the ring and yanks the steel chair out of Eclipse Diemos’ hands! HRDO is admonishing him right now but it is in one ear and out the other! Eclipse Diemos is trying to grab it out of his hands! HRDO and Eclipse Diemos struggling as Eclipse Diemos overpowers HRDO and gets it back in his clutches! He is determined to punish Drastik! He is daring HRDO to stop him, getting in his face as HRDO appears to be backing away! Eclipse Diemos smirks and turns back to Drastik with that chair — but HRDO heads back and turns him around to stop him! OH! UPPERCUT! ECLIPSE DIEMOS JUST KNOCKED DOWN OUR BOSS FOR THE SECOND TIME! SHADES OF GRAND RAMPAGE! ECLIPSE DIEMOS HAS LOST IT, HE MUST HAVE A DEATH WISH! THE MAN IS ALREADY ON THIN ICE! ECLIPSE HAVING DISPOSED OF HRDO AS HE NOW TURNS BACK TO DRASTIK —
Kawajai: SUPERKICK! DRASTIK KICKING THAT CHAIR AND SHOOTING IT INTO THE FACE OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS, TAKING HIM OFF OF HIS FEET! THE PLAN OF ECLIPSE’S HAS JUST BACKFIRED! DRASTIK IS NOW THE ONE STANDING OVER ECLIPSE! DRASTIK KICKS THE CHAIR AWAY, GRABS ECLIPSE BY HIS ARMS AND DRAGS HIM INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! DRASTIK IS GOING ON THE APRON AND HEADS TO THE TOP! DRASTIK HOPING THE SECOND ONE WILL PUT HIM AWAY THIS TIME! STIGMAAAAATTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Kawajai: CHOOOOOOOOKEEEEESSLLAAAAMMMM!!! HRDO JUST TURNED ECLIPSE DIEMOS AND CHOKESLAMMED ECLIPSE DIEMOS STRAIGHT INTO THE MAT! WHAT THE HELL? THAT’S OUR CEO JUST LAYING OUT AN EMPLOYEE! HRDO IS SEETHING RIGHT NOW, HIS EYES LOOKING DEMONIC! ECLIPSE DIEMOS HAS PUSHED OUR BOSS TOO FAR! HRDO SHOUTS AT ECLIPSE, LETTING HIS FEELINGS BEING KNOWN AS HE NOW LOOKS AROUND THE RING….
WWEFan: HRDO checks out the disoriented Drastik….AND HE GUIDES HIM ON TOP OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS! HRDO NOW PULLS THE REFEREE IN THEIR DIRECTION TOO AS HE IS JUST NOW COMING TO! HRDO IS DEMANDING THAT HE COUNT THE PIN! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Adventures” by Kid Cudi plays as the crowd is unsure of what to make of this, looking around in confusion while Drastik starts to get up, realizing what is going on as he is smiling and asking for his championship.)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match…..ANNNDDDD STTTIILLLL EAW CHAMPIONNNN…..DRAAAAAAAASSSSTTIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!
WWEFan: I am speechless. What just happened there!? HRDO just snapped! Eclipse Diemos had the match won until HRDO came to and chokeslammed him there!…I guess HRDO finally had enough. It’s hard to be professional after getting punched in the mouth.
Kawajai: You can only give people so many chances and let things go! HRDO was already wary of things getting overboard due to past behavior, that’s why he came out tonight, but then the disrespect to authority Diemos showed, and then having the nerve to lay hands on him again, it was just too much. I haven’t seen HRDO in a mood like this in a long time.
(HRDO walks off, ignoring the audience who question his actions. He undoes his tie and unbuttons his cuffs, messing up his professional attire and trying to unwind as he heads up the ramp.)
WWEFan: Well it looks like our boss is heading to the back to let off some steam, but anywho, no matter how it ended, at the end of the day you have to accept the fact that Drastik is still our EAW Champion! Drastik held his own throughout the match up and very much showed it wasn’t just a lucky win at Grand Rampage. That shooting star press…the suplex through the table…the way he was able to turn Eclipse’s chair shot against him, there was a lot of impressive offense put on display by our EAW Champion and he definitely seems proud of himself as he is holding that EAW Championship up high!
Kawajai: Drastik is doing a walk around the ring, making sure the whole London crowd can see him with that belt! Drastik is enjoying his moment with the belt! Eclipse Diemos rolls out of the ring and is making his way to the back, for sure heading out to find HRDO! The ring is all Drastik’s! He makes his way to the last corner, doing a pose at the top! After so many doubts, Drastik can now say that he’ll be walking out of Fighting Spirit, still the top dog on Voltage! Still…Champion!
(Drastik puts the belt around his waist and looks to head out of the ring when suddenly the lights go out.)
WWEFan: It looks like we’re having some technical difficulties here, if we can just fix this real fast so that we can sign off just give us a moment here —
Kawajai: I don’t think it’s technical difficulties, Fan! The lights are back on AND IT’S TIBERIUS IV! TIBERIUS AND THE KINGSGUARD ARE IN THE RING STANDING BEFORE DRASTIK! WHAT ARE THEY DOING HERE IN LONDON!? DRASTIK IS LOOKING AROUND TO FIND AN OUT — BUT THEY IMMEDIATELY GO ON THE ATTACK! TIBERIUS AND THE KINGSGUARD PERFORMING A BEATING, A MUGGING ON OUR EAW CHAMPION AND I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY!
WWEFan: DRASTIK IS FAR TOO HURT FROM HIS MATCH TO PUT UP MUCH OF A FIGHT! TIBERIUS IS ASKING THEM TO HOLD DRASTIK UP! TIBERIUS STANDS IN FRONT OF DRASTIK….AND YANKS THE BELT RIGHT OFF OF HIM! TIBERIUS STARING DOWN AT THAT EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, GIVING IT A GOOD LOOK AS A LIGHT SMILE SHOWS UP ON HIS FACE ; AND HE THEN BASHES IT AGAINST DRASTIK’S SKULL AS THERON AND THE BURNED MAN ALLOWS FOR HIM TO FALL! DRASTIK IS OUT ON THE GROUND, BUSTED OPEN WITH THE EAW TITLE LAYING ON TOP OF HIM!
