Tempest (2019)

(EAW intro plays.)

(The cameras cut to the inside of the KFC Yum! Center! It’s pitch black and the fans inside are going crazy! Eventually, the crowd noise dies down, and after a few minutes, Morgan Freeman’s voice begins to play.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: Mythology tells the tale of the east wind…

(Dramatic shots of all the Voltage Kings flicker across the video tron.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: Constantly carrying devastation and suffering on its back…

(Video highlights of all of tonight’s blood feuds begin to play.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: Destruction of entire civilizations was brought by its whispers…

(Charlie Marr is seen slamming Jordie Ripley in the face with a chair. Xander Payne is seen attacking Noah from behind. The Visual Prophet is seen cutting Myles down in a promotional video. Daryl Kinkade is seen standing up to Rex, getting right up in his face. POP is seen walking away from a backstage fight with Lethal Consequences. Jackson Blayde is seen having Farrell V deported.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: For behind it lies a violent Tempest storm…

(The Woogieman, Landerson, Provencal, and Chudd are seen tearing into one another during the amazing build-up to the Big Bhris Bhampionship match.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: One that cuts and tears at the fabric of our manufactured lives…

(Jack Ripley is seen superkicking Charlie Marr off the stage. Noah Reigner is seen putting Xander Payne through the Faroe Islands announce table. Myles is seen hitting the De Facto on The Visual Prophet during tonight’s preshow. Rex is seen going back and forth with Daryl. LC is seen running his mouth to POP. Farrell V is seen destroying Jackson.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: Few are those that survive its fearsome power…

(A full blown highlight reel of Charlie Marr versus Jack Ripley is shown.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: And many are those that fall to its might…

(A full blown highlight reel of Jackson Blayde versus Farrell V is shown.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: When the Tempest wind blows…

(A full blown highlight reel of Lethal Consequences versus The Prince of Phenomenal is shown.)

Morgan Freeman Voiceover: Where will you find yourself?

(A full blown highlight reel of Noah Reigner versus Xander Payne is shown. It ends with a final shot of Noah Reigner with the World Heavyweight Championship.)

(Pyro begins to explode in various shades of green, purple, and gold. “One Minute” by XXXTentacion begins to blast throughout the building and a freaking hologram of the controversial deceased artist appears on the stage, singing the song. The fans start singing along, locking their arms around one another, and waving their cellphone flashlights in the air.)

(Once the song comes to a close, more pyro explodes. Once the smoke clears, and the tron flickers back on, the graphic for the first match of the night flickers across it.)

James Peters: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN WELCOME TO THE VOLTAGE EXCLUSIVE EVENT, TEMPEST!!!

Rich Russillo: I’M SURE TONIGHT’S SHOW IS GOING TO BE GOAT GOAT AND WE AREN’T WASTING ANY TIME!!! ONE OF THESE MEN WILL BE GOING TO NEXT MONTH’S QUAD-BRAND FREE-PER-VIEW GRAND RAMPAGE TO FACE THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!

(The shot cuts to Bella Braxton inside the ring.)

(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray hits to a big mixed reaction as Prince of Phenomenal walks out wearing his black leather vest and ring tights, looking around at the crowd as he begins to make his way to the ring)

James Peters: We are about to get set for a match that I think has the potential to steal the entire show! Two hall of Fame competitors who’ve held nothing but hate for each other lately. The Prince of Phenomenal always comes ready to put on a spectacle and get a win and I can’t say he looks like he’s ready for anything less here tonight!

Rich Russillo: Well he’s going to have a hard time. He’s made his presence felt to Lethal Consequences in recent months and the man who took Voltage by storm when he first returned during the annual draft show wasn’t exactly pleased when POP got involved in the Openweight Championship match at King of Elite.

(POP climbs up and into the ring, posing momentarily for the crowd against the ropes before settling over to his corner to loosen up)

(“Blackout” by Company Flow hits to a big mixed reaction as Lethal Consequences now makes his way out, his eyes fixed on POP as he makes his way down)

Rich Russillo: And here comes the man who actually led POP into battle at Territorial Invasion as a part of Team Enterprise. That night obviously didn’t go their way and you could almost look to that as a seed that was planted for this bitterness between them now. And let’s not forget, Lethal Consequences has had his eyes on the World Heavyweight Championship since the day he returned, that much he’s made very clear. And it’s easy to forget with this rivalry between them that this match is actually to determine the number one contender to the World Heavyweight Championship!

James Peters: That’s right and— LC JUST SLID INTO THE RING AND IS GOING RIGHT AFTER POP!!!

Rich Russillo: LC GETS IN AND LAYS A FEW PUNCHES INTO POP! Oh but now the referee shoving himself between them! POP is shoved back into his corner and the ref tries to drive LC back to his and— POP WITH A LEAPING FOREARM OVER THE REFEREE CONNECTS TO LC’S JAW AND NOW BOTH MEN ARE BRAWLING ON THE MAT!

(Several referees rush the ring and pull the brawl apart, dragging both men to their respective corners)

Rich Russillo: BOOOOOO! LET THEM FIGHT!

James Peters: The officials trying to restore some order so we can get things properly underway.

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest Is scheduled for— ONE FALL!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Bella Braxton: And it is to determine the number one contender to the EAW World Heavyweight Championship!!!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Atlanta, Georgia by way of South Beach, Florida, weighing in at 220 pounds… EAW Hall of Famer… PRIIIIIINNNNCCCCEEE OOFFFF PPPHHHEEENNNOOMMEENNNAALLLL!!!!!

(Camera shows POP still being restrained by the referees in his corner)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 230 pounds… EAW Hall of Famer… LEEEETTTHHHAAALLLLLL CCCOOONNNSSSEEEQQQUUUEENNCCEESSS!!!

(LC is shown struggling against the referees as the initial ref walks to the center of the ring and calls for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: THE OFFICIALS LET THEM GO AND BOTH MEN MEET IN THE MIDDLE! POP GOES FOR A PUNCH TO THE JAW BUT LC DROPS HIM WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN AND THESE TWO ARE BRAWLING AGAIN! LC RAINING DOWN SHOTS FROM THE TOP AND POP TRYING TO COVER UP WHILE LANDING SOME BODY BLOWS! LC NOW DROPPING 12 TO 6 ELBOWS RIGHT INTO THE FOREHEAD OF POP! POP TAKING SHOT AFTER SHOT! HE MAY BE OUT ALREADY!! LC REACHES BACK AND HOOKS A LEG!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Rich Russillo: NO! POP still managed to kick out! He looks rocked though! But LC is ever the man all about business and grabs POP by the soccer mom hair and pulls him up! DRIVING KNEES DIRECTLY INTO PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL’S SKULL! POP is— POP DRIVES LC BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! NOW POP DRIVING THE SHOULDER INTO LC’S RIBS OVER AND OVER! POP has to take advantage of this! He gives up ten pounds and four inches in this matchup against LC! POP stands and lands several firearms across the jaw of LC! Pulls him back… MONKEY FLIP SENDS LC TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND HE LANDED HARD ON HIS SHOULDER AND BACK! POP gonna yank himself up to the top rope quick as he can! Looking to put this away early! CHAPTER SIX! HE TAKES OFF WITH THE SPIRAL TAP!

James Peters: BUT LC GETS THE BOOT UP AND POP LANDS ON IT JAW FIRST! POP crashes hard off the failed attempt and rolls underneath the bottom rope to the apron! He’s clutching at his face and he may have a fractured jaw after that landing! But LC is up now! Runs the ropes! BASEBALL SLIDE SENDS POP CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! LC gets out and makes chase! He grabs POP up and gets him into his shoulders! GORILLA PRESS DROPS POP HARD ONTO THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE! HE FALLS OVER INTO THE FAN SECTION BUT LC GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR AGAIN! He drags POP’s body across the barricade and grabs him the head with the feet still up on the barricade! ELEVATED DDT TO THE FLOOR! Now LC grabs POP one more time and rolls him back into the ring! He hooks the leg for a pin!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Rich Russillo: STILL NOT ENOUGH! POP MANAGED TO POWER OUT AFTER BEING BRUTALIZED IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THIS MATCH!

James Peters: That’s the heart of a man who wants to be champion. The instinct to survive.

Rich Russillo: Both if these men with World Championships in their last and it’s easy to see why from both the dominance of LC and the resilience of POP! LC stomping now into POP! Continuing to wear the smaller man down! Forcing him to expend all energy just to survive! LC continues to stomp— BUT POP PICKS THE LEG TRIPS LC! Now POP on the offensive as he manages to roll over on top of LC and throws some punches of his own! These men want to see each other put down tonight! And neither will stop until it’s done! POP SWINGING LIKE A MAN POSSESSED! HE LANDS SHOT AFTER SHOT NOW AND LC IS BARELY ABLE TO COVER UP AND— LC JUST HAD HIS NOSE BROKEN I BELIEVE! THERE’S BLOOD RUNNING FROM HIS NOSE NOW AND SPREADING ALL OVER HIS FACE AND INTO HIS HAIR WITH EVERY PUNCH FROM POP!

James Peters: It’s this kind of drive that’s kept POP alive in many matches in the past! He rolls off of LC and is quick to his feet as he runs the ropes now! PUNT KICK! CLEAN ACROSS THE TEMPLE OF LC! He steps out to the apron now! Lines up! SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH CONNECTS! HOOKS THE LEG! THIS COULD BE IT!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THR—

James Peters: BUT LC GETS THE SHOULDER UP! JUST IN TIME! POP isn’t about to waste any time getting back on the offensive either! He steps back up jumps! Double foot stomp to the chest of LC! That could crack a man’s sternum easily! LC looks like all the wind was driven out of his lungs! POP steps back out to the apron to take advantage! He’s lined up! He pulls the elbow pad down! LC is standing slowly! He turns around! POP LEAPS! SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH!

Rich Russillo: NOO! THE ACID REIGN!!! LC CAUGHT POP OUT OF MID AIR INTO THE DIAMOND CUTTER!! HE DRAPES OVER HIM WITH THE LATERAL PRESS PIN!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Rich Russillo: HE DID IT!!!

James Peters: NO! LOOK! POP GOT HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! THE REF IS WAIVING OFF THE COUNT AND LC IS LIVID! He grabs POP by the leg and drags him away from the rope! He drops down and hooks the leg!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOO—

Rich Russillo: Not enough as POP has had a moment to recover! LC stands and grabs POP’s leg up! He holds it up and— DEAR GOD HE JUST BENT POP’S KNEE SIDEWAYS WITH THAT KICK! POP IS IN PAIN! LOOK AT HOW HES CLUTCHING THAT KNEE! I THINK ITS ALREADY STARTING TO SWELL!

James Peters: And LC is now on him like a lion mauling a zebra. He wraps up that knee and yanks it into a standing kneebar! POP is screaming in pain on the ground but refusing to give in! But the damage being done to those ligaments can only go so far! He can only take so much!

Rich Russillo: But LC finally releases the hold and now stomping into that knee! Over and over just driving his boot into it, crushing it with everything he has! Now LC grabs his legs… LOOKING FOR THE BLACKOUT! THAT COULD SPELL THE END OF THIS MATCH!!! He goes to wrap the legs up… BUT POP SHOVES HIM OFF WITH HIS GOOD LEG! POP is hobbled but he’s still gonna fight. He tries to get to his feet but LC clubs him from behind! POP struggling to get to his feet with his banged up knee and LC’S assault but he’s clinging to the top rope to keep himself up! BACK ELBOWS FROM POP INTO THE BLOODY FACE OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!! LC is stumbled but here he comes again and—

James Peters: PELE KICK! POP THREW THE INJURED LEG BACK FOR ALL THE MOMENTUM AND CONNECTED WITH LC’S FOREHEAD!! LC DROPS TO THE MAT AND POP TRIES TO PULL HIMSELF UP AGAIN! HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND LOOKS OVER TO SEE LC NOT MOVING! HE PULLS HIMSELF ALONG THE ROPE AND HE GETS HIMSELF TO THE TURNBUCKLES!! SURELY HE’S NOT GONNA TRY THIS AGAIN?!?

Rich Russillo: DON’T CALL ME SHIRLEY BUT IT LOOKS LIKE POP IS GOING FOR THE BIG WIN! HE’S PULLING HIMSELF TO THE TOP ONE ROPE AT A TIME! GINGERLY ON THAT BAD LEG! HE BALANCES HIMSELF ON A SINGLE LEG AND LINE UP! LC IS LAYING FLAT ON HIS STOMACH WITH HIS HANDS UNDERNEATH HIM! POP HAS THAT LOOK IN HIS EYES! CHAPTER SIX!! HE EXECUTES THE SPIRAL TAP OFF ONE LEG!!!

James Peters: BUT LC ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! POP CRASHES HARD ON THE MAT!! HE ROLLS IN PAIN! LC GETS UP AND— HE JUST RAN INTO THE REFEREE!! THE REF STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CORNER!! POP IS STRUGGLING TO HIS FEET AND—

Rich Russillo: LC JUST PUNCHED POP IN THE FACE AND— IT LOOKS LIKE… YES! LC IS PULLING SOMETHING OFF HIS FINGERS! HE JUST BUSTED POP IN THE FACE WITH… THOSE ARE HIS HALL OF FAME RINGS!!! HE JUST PUNCHED POP IN THE FACE WITH HIS TWO HALL OF FAME RINGS! POP IS BUSTED OPEN! BLOOD FLOWING FROM A GASH UNDERNEATH HIS EYE! LC SHOVES THE RINGS BACK INTO HIS TIGHTS AND DRAGS POP TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! THE BLACKOUT! LC APPLIES THE BLACKOUT! THE SHARPSHOOTER HEADLOCK COMBO! HE CRANKS IT IN TIGHT! AND HERE COMES THE REFEREE!! HE CHECKS ON POP!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY SUBMISSION… LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!!

(LC stands and has his hand raised. He has a giant grin on his face as he stands over POP’s body and “Blackout” plays over the sound system again.)

James Peters: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES JUST SCREWED POP! HE USED THOSE RINGS AND—

Rich Russillo: SHUT UP! YOU ONLY WISH YOU COULD BE AS RESOURCEFUL AS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! Besides! Look at the damage done to POP’s leg! Look at his unconscious face! Lethal Consequences dominated this match and he has EARNED the right to face the World Heavyweight Champion!

(LC stands and holds his fist in the air before exiting the ring as the medical team now tends to POP.)

Rich Russillo: A fantastic win here for LC and he will be going on to do big business against the winner of tonight’s main event!

(Commercial Break for the DVD of Peanut Butter and Jelly: A Romance of Destiny.)

(Tempest returns to the backstage medical area. The Visual Prophet is being checked over by Dr. Winston Brett, and Veena Adams looks horrified.)

Veena Adams: Is Vizzy going to be okay?! Is he going to be able to face Myles tonight?!

The Visual Prophet: I’m fine, I’m fine. If Myles honestly thinks putting me through our perfect preshow panel table is going to stop me from kicking his beautiful booty tonight, then our wanna be New Breed Admiral is sadly mistaken. Just like Gawd healed you at the Iconic Cup and gave you back your legs, he is going to heal me so I can go out there and beat the living hell out of Myles tonight.

Dr. Winston Brett: Mr. Prophet is good to go tonight.

???: That’s fantastic news!

(Voltage commissioner and resident sexpot, Captain Charisma, walks into the picture. Neither Veena nor Viz look happy to see him.)

Veena Adams: Matty.

Captain Charisma: Veena. Viz.

(The Visual Prophet responds with a sassy sigh.)

Captain Charisma: I’m glad that tonight’s match is still on. You must have really irritated Myles this week with your bullshit, Viz. I’m sure you will have no trouble at all beating him tonight since you’ll be out there all on your own.

(Veena goes to reply, but Captain Charisma holds up his hand.)

Captain Charisma: I also wanted to inform you about a little match I have put together for you on next week’s Voltage.

Veena Adams: Another match?! Viz needs a week off. He’s been busting his ass week after week, and I already told him that next week he’s off.

Captain Charisma: Who gave you that authority, Veena? I’m the Voltage commissioner and you are MY assistant. You’ve gassed up The Visual Prophet to be the most must see thing in all of Elite Answers Wrestling, so I have been talking with Hurricane Hawk. For next week, we have made a trade. Jack Ripley will be heading to Showdown to represent Voltage in a match against Chris Elite.

(Captain Charisma smirks at that.)

Captain Charisma: In exchange, one of the best talents on Showdown will be coming BACK to Voltage to face The Visual Prophet in our main event.

(Veena narrows her eyes.)

Veena Adams: And who is this talent, Matty?!

Captain Charisma: The King of Elite himself, Malcolm Jones.

(If looks could kill, Captain Charisma would be dead. Veena takes a deep breath and quickly schools her face into a neutral expression.)

Veena Adams: Of course. It will be great for ratings to have Malcolm Jones back on Voltage. Surely they won’t completely tank like they did when you exchanged Noah for Cumslut Ava. Vizzy will be ready, won’t you baby?

The Visual Prophet: Mmmmm, having a King say my name? I’m here for it.

Captain Charisma: Good.

(Captain Charisma turns and walks off, and Dr. Brett takes his leave. Veena’s face scrunches up in anger.)

Veena Adams: Matty is going to regret this. The Visual Prophet versus Malcolm Jones. Literally no one wants to see that.

(Viz doesn’t reply. The hardest working man in EAW knows his challenge tonight is Myles. Veena pulls her cellphone out and starts texting away. Tempest cuts back to ringside.)

(Rich and James are heard back on commentary as Bella is seen in the ring.)

Rich Russillo: James, we have a good old fashioned father-son showoff next. Daryl Kinkade and Rex McAllister have a special bond, beginning when Rex took Daryl and Charlie under his wing to mentor them. Rex became the father of the group, gaining the trust and respect from the two.

James Peters: Nothing made Rex happier than helping them become successful on this platform. Former tag team champions and co-National Elite champions. Rex even hand picked them be apart of Team Voltage at Territorial Invasion. However, things have went off of the rails for our happy little Voltage family. Marr turned his back on Kinkade, and Daryl lashed out at Rex, especially after Daryl believes that Rex put him and Marr on the backburner and chose Raven Roberts.

Rich Russillo: I mean… I would have done the same thing, though. At some point you have to focus on yourself and your own life and career. Rex made his choice, and it was Raven. Daryl is upset at that, and he’s snapped. He’s shown his mentor nothing but disrespect for weeks. And, to be honest – while I think Rex chose right, I also am totally onboard with this new attitude of Daryl. Maybe that will be what he needs to put him over the hump and propel him to the top.

James Peters: Well, taking on the former two-time World Champion is no easy feat especially in a Submission match. Rex is a technical genius and submissions are his game. This is a ballsy move for Daryl, but he did let Rex pick the stipulation.

(“Snakeskin” plays over the sound system, and the ‘tron comes to life with a prepared package of Daryl Kinkade. The former tag team and National Elite champion walks out from behind the curtain, and for probably the first time in his life – he receives a mixed reaction.)

Rich Russillo: And that is exactly why I like this for Daryl. Overcoming the handicap of submission match, AND a former Multi-time champion? His career will take off in a big way if he can pull this out.

James Peters: It’s a test for him, for sure. I’m interested in seeing how he handles this.

(Daryl slides into the ring, mounting the nearest turnbuckle where he taunts the crowd.)

Bella Braxton: The following match is a special Submission match. Introducing first, from Norwich, England — Daryl Kinkade!

(Daryl climbs down from the turnbuckle and removes his entrance jacket. He crosses the ring and waits in the far corner, squatting down with his eyes focused on the ramp. It didn’t take long before “Still Unbroken” begins to play.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Sea Isle, New Jersey — Rex McAllister!

(Rex emerged from behind the curtain to a thunderous reaction of cheers from the Kentucky crowd. He stands on top of the stage, a half-smile touching his lips as he looked around the arena.)

James Peters: The crowd has erupted for the former World champion. Rex is the embodiment of fan favorite, and tonight is no different. His heart and willingness to never give up have earned the respect of everyone worldwide, that is why he gets the reaction he does.

Rich Russillo: Rex has reserve tanks that he can tap into at anytime, we’ve seen that before in the past. That is one of the reasons why he’s won the championship twice, because of his limitless stamina. So as you said, this is definitely a test for Daryl, perhaps the biggest he’s faced yet.

(Rex climbs into the ring, removing his ‘Fire and Ice’ track jacket, dropping it over the ropes to the stagehand. The music cuts off and the crowd can be heard in dueling chants – “REX! REX! REX!”, “KIN-KADE! KIN-KADE! KIN-KADE!”. Daryl and Rex have locked eyes, and haven’t looked away..)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: The bell has sounded, and it doesn’t take long before the trash talk begins. Daryl shouts something to Rex, and Rex waves him on. Daryl explodes out of his corner and onto Rex with a series of rapid punches and forearms. Rex throws up his arms, blocking a number of them but succumbs to a spinning sole kick to the stomach. Rex is doubled over and Daryl sprints to the ropes, coming back .. CLOTHESLINE! Rex just stopped whatever momentum Daryl was building, and now the former World champion has pulled Daryl up to his feet, feeding his protege forearm shots that stagger him, only to take him down with a fireman’s carry and immediately into a reverse Chinlock. Rex already looking to apply submissions onto Daryl.

Rich Russillo: It’s a little too early in the match, though. Daryl hasn’t been sufficiently worn down yet, and you can see that as he’s managed to unlock Rex’s hands and work himself up to his feet. Rex has transitioned into a side headlock as Daryl’s moved up to his feet, but Daryl fires a back elbow into Rex’s stomach. One, and then another. Rex’s grip is broken completely and Daryl turns around, hitting a sudden – and stiff – Gamengiri kick to Rex! Rex doesn’t drop, but instead looks a little wobbly. Daryl’s quickly back up to his feet, pushing Rex into the corner – keeping him there with rapid fire strikes. Elbows, forearms, kicks. All to weaken him enough for Daryl to turn and sprint around the ring, coming back with a BIG facewash kick!! His boot smacks off of Rex’s face, and Rex drops down to a single knee in the corner.

James Peters: Daryl exits out onto the apron and climbs up to the top rope quickly. Rex has moved up to both feet, and as he’s lifting himself up from a bent over position, Daryl jumps off – hitting a double foot stomp to the back of Rex’s head! Rex crashes onto the mat and normally after something like that, Daryl would attempt a pin. Instead he flips Rex onto his back, grabbing his legs. He looks a little uncomfortable, though. He has one submission move in his arsenal, so he goes for it. With Rex’s legs held, Daryl twists Rex over and steps over him, placing a knee into the small of Rex’s back. ‘WORKING OUT THE KINKS’ submission from Daryl! Rex thrashing around immediately, reaching for the ropes and managing to grab the bottom one. Daryl didn’t pull Rex away far enough and now he has to break the hold.

Referee (Off-Mic): Come on Daryl, let him go. One.. Two… Three.. Four.. Fi…

Rich Russillo: Daryl lets the hold go, standing back up to his feet and placing multiple stomps on the small of Rex’s back. Daryl grabs Rex up again, whipping him into the corner again – following him in quickly with a stiff running European Uppercut! Rex looks to stumble out of the corner, but Daryl pushes him back in, and SLAPS HIM IN THE FACE!!

James Peters: :damn:

Rich Russillo: Shoving his face, shouting directly at him.

Daryl Kinkade (Off-Mic): COME ON DAD! FIGHT BACK! DO SOMETHING!

James Peters: Daryl is egging Rex on, provoking him. I don’t know if that’s the smartest move on his part.

Rich Russillo: Other than the small bit of offense Rex had a moment ago, Daryl has been in control. Daryl has said he’s disappointed in Rex, and he’s letting him hear it now. Daryl rears back and swings again.. SLAP!!

James Peters: No! Rex throws up a hand and blocks the strike. Daryl is shook! Rex has grabbed him and flipped him into the corner. CHOP! CHOP! CHOP! Rapid fire knife edge chops turn Daryl’s flash to a bright red color quickly. Rex throwing everything he has into those chops. Rex has stepped away and lets Daryl come out of the corner.. OVERHEAD RELEASE BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! Daryl was just sent half-way across the ring and crashes hard. Rex has quickly returned to his feet now and rushes to Daryl who’s just returning to his feet – BULLDOG TAKEDOWN BY REX! Daryl’s face is driven into the mat. He’s trying to fight this attack from Rex off, but the experience from Rex is proving too much to handle.

Rich Russillo: Daryl’s on his back and Rex has mounted him, hammering him with punches to the head. Daryl is doing everything he can to block the shots, but Rex is relentless. The referee is standing by, watching – not stopping this at all.

James Peters: No, he knows there is bad blood between these two right now and is allowing them to fight it out. I respect that.

Rich Russillo: Rex has grabbed the back of Daryl’s head, “I’m going to beat respect into you!” He just shouted at Daryl. :wow:

James Peters: Rex pulls Daryl up to his feet and whips him into the ropes. Daryl comes back and is wrapped up in a sleeper! Rex slipped one arm tight around Daryl’s neck and the other around his head. The standing submission is locked in, and Daryl is a little panicked. He’s reaching out for the ropes, but he’s dead center of the ring.. And now REX HAS DROPPED BACK! Daryl is not in a good position now. The sleeper just locked in even tighter. The way they fell, Daryl is ontop of Rex and his arms outstretched trying to find the power to get out of his. Daryl’s hands grabbing at Rex’s arm around his throat, trying to pry his arm away – but it’s not working.

Rich Russillo: Daryl looks like he’s beginning to fade, James. Imagine that this is how you’re put down, by a sleeper hold? Come on, Daryl!

James Peters: Wait a second. Daryl’s arms dropped, but his feet are moving. OOP!! Using that agility of his, he managed to whip his legs up and roll backward! With the sudden movement, Rex’s hold was released and he looks up shocked at Daryl rolled backward up to his feet.. JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP, DRIVING HIS FEET RIGHT INTO THE CHEST CAVITY OF REX MCALLISTER!! Daryl moves off of Rex and immediately sprints to the ropes. Rex has sat up, holding his ribs in a a great deal of pain..

Rich Russillo: ‘AFTER MIDNIGHT’!!!!!! DARYL KINKADE JUST HIT THE ROPES TO GAIN MOMENTUM AND HIT REX PERFECTLY WITH HIS SHINING WIZARD!!

James Peters: Oh man, that knee looks like it knocked Rex out cold. Daryl sits up on his knees and he’s smiling when he looks down to his mentor. Daryl has completely went off of the rails and a new, aggressive side is coming out. Daryl hops back up to his feet. Only to swing his arms one way and then the other before he suddenly drops with a Pendulum Elbow drop right to the heart of Rex. Daryl moves and locks in the same grounded sleeper that Rex just had him in, and he’s wrenching it in tightly.

Rich Russillo: This doesn’t look good for Rex. The Shining Wizard from before put him down and now he looks out of it in this sleeper. The referee is standing over the two in the perfect position to see Rex’s responses or, lack thereof? Rex hasn’t really moved since Daryl put in the sleeper and it’s beginning to get concerning. Everyone’s on their feet watching. The referee grabs Rex’s wrist, lifting it up once — and drops it fully.

Referee (Off-Mic): ONE!

James Peters: If the referee does this twice more, Rex is officially declared unconscious. He’s grabbed Rex’s arm again and lifts it. Daryl’s shouting to the referee to drop the arm. The referee looks around before dropping his arm again…

Referee (Off-Mic): TWO!!

James Peters: Rex is at two. Daryl tightens his arms around Rex’s head and throat more, wanting to make sure Rex was out cold.
Daryl Kinkade (Off-Mic): DO IT!!!

James Peters: You can hear Daryl shouting more. The referee reluctantly sighing as he grabs Rex’s arm for the third time and lifting it high. If it drops once more, Daryl will have choked out Rex and will win the match. … He’s let the arm go!!

Rich Russillo: :damn:

James Peters: :damn:

Everyone: :damn:

Rich Russillo: DARYL’S LET THE SLEEPER GO AND MOVES REX’S BODY ONTO THE MAT. HE’S UP TO HIS FEET IN CELEBRATION. HIS ARMS RAISED HIGH IN THE AIR, HE’S DONE IT!

James Peters: NOT SO FAST! … The referee is telling the ring announcer something and waves off the bell before it could ring. WHAT!? He’s saying Rex’s arm never fully dropped!!

(REPLAY: The referee drops Rex’s arm for the third time — but Rex is able to stop it from fully falling!! Daryl releases the hold, under the assumption that he’s won but the referee double checks Rex and Rex tells him he’s good to go!)

Rich Russillo: The referee has just informed Daryl, and he’s LIVID!

James Peters: Daryl truly thought he choked Rex out and that he won the match. I was even convinced that Rex was out of this, but there’s that reserve of stamina I was talking about. When it seems that it’s over for Rex, he pulls down deep and somehow fights out of it.

Rich Russillo: I don’t know how much he’ll be able to fight anymore. Daryl is absolutely furious. Daryl watches Rex sit up to his knees and removes his elbow pad. NO! Don’t tell me that Daryl’s going to attempt this?! James, Daryl has been working on perfecting a new strike that is devastating .. and I think he’s going to make sure Rex is done for. Daryl lets out a primal scream… KILLED! YOU! DEAD!!!!! HIDDEN BLADE ELBOW STRIKE TO THE BACK OF REX’S HEAD!!!!

James Peters: NOOOOO!!!!! REX MANAGES TO DROP TO THE MAT AND AVOID IT!! HE MUST HAVE HEARD THE QUICK APPROACH AND HIS INSTINCTS KICKED IN! DARYL’S OWN MOMENTUM TAKING HIM INTO THE CORNER HARD!

Rich Russillo: Thank god! I’m pulling for Daryl here, but that would have done more than just end Rex’s night. Rex is back up to his feet, still groggy, but grabs Daryl and pulls him out of the corner.. Only to throw him back in between the ropes – SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL POST!! DARYL LET’S OUT AN AGONIZING SCREAM JUST BEFORE HIS BODY SLUMPS OUT ONTO THE APRON. Rex pulls Daryl back into the ring, positioning him with his legs to the steel turnbuckle before he climbs out of the ring.

James Peters: What is Rex doing, taking a hold of both of Daryl’s legs. The referee moves between the ropes, shouting at Rex to return inside of the ring.

Rex McAllister (Off-Mic): This is personal! I’m doing this!!

James Peters: Rex just shouted back at the referee and the referee threw up his hands. Like I said, he’s allowing them to work this out. Rex uses his strength to pull Daryl more into the corner. Not enough to low blow him into the post, but his legs are hanging on the outside. Wait! I know what Rex is doing! He’s wrapping Daryl’s legs around the post… FIGURE FOUR!!! REX IS HANGING UPSIDE DOWN WITH THE FIGURE FOUR APPLIED, AND DARYL IS SCREAMING IN PAIN INSIDE OF THE RING!

Rich Russillo: The referee is right there, asking Daryl if he submits. James, he’s answering with repeated “eff” no’s! The pain must be excruciating but Daryl is trying to stay in this. Rex uses his core strength to sit up, removing the padding around Daryl’s knee before proceeding to smash the point of his elbow into it several times. Daryl screams are louder now when that happens… REX SNAPS BACK DOWN, APPLYING INSANE TORQUE ON THAT SUBMISSION!!

James Peters: Rex is doing serious damage to Daryl’s knee now, and if this continues Daryl may not be able to compete – but he’s not submitting. Rex isn’t the only one on the roster with a big heart – and Daryl isn’t going to give this up that easily. And I think Rex realizes that he’s not going to submit just yet. He releases the hold and unwraps Daryl’s legs from around the post. Daryl pulls himself back into the ring a little, clutching his knee. I think there’s extensive damage there, Rich.

Rich Russillo: Rex has climbed back into the ring, grabbing Daryl up and kicks him hard in the stomach. You’re right, James, Daryl can barely put any weight on his leg right now. Rex hits a clubbing forearm blow to Daryl’s back, dropping him to the mat. But Daryl is fighting back to his feet. Rex waves him up.. And runs forward..

James Peters: REX EFFECT!!! REX JUST DRILLED DARYL’S HEAD INTO THE MAT WITH THE REX EFFECT!! DARYL IS OUT OF IT, THERE’S NO QUESTION RICH!

Rich Russillo: But this is a submission match. The Rex Effect won’t end this for him tonight. He’s going to have to get Daryl to submit or to pass out in a submission.

James Peters: Well, Daryl just rolled out of the ring. Using his instincts there to get away from anymore damage. Rex rolls out as well, landing on his feet unlike Daryl though. Daryl lays out on the ground and is easily grabbed up by Rex who moves him to the steps and slams his head off of the steel steps. Daryl drops to the floor, sitting against the steps.

Rich Russillo: Rex has backed away the length of the ring, but hasn’t removed his eyes from Daryl. What is he planning , James?

James Peters: I don’t know, but something tells me it’s not good. Look at the expression on Rex’s face, it looks like he’s… sad? .. He just mouthed “I’m Sorry” toward Daryl.. And charges forward! OH MY GOD, SANDWICHING DARYL’S HEAD BETWEEN HIS KNEE AND THE STEEL STEPS!

Rich Russillo: NO HE DOESN’T! DARYL DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY AND REX COLLIDES WITH THE STEPS, KNEE FIRST!!! REX FLIPS OVER THE STEPS, INSTANTLY SCREAMING OUT LOUD AS HE CLUTCHES HIS KNEE!

James Peters: Both men are down on the outside of the ring and both are in extreme pain. But look, they’re both trying to fight their way up to their feet. Neither man being able to put full weight on their knees. Rex is up fully first and moves back to Daryl, moving gingerly on that leg.

Rich Russillo: DARYL OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A BACK ELBOW TO REX’S FACE! REX STUMBLES BACK HOLDING HIS NOSE.. ENZIGURI BY DARYL! BUT HE’S USED THAT BAD LEG!

James Peters: He’s fighting through the pain, though. Rex is down and Daryl moves to him.. NO WAY! YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! .. DARYL HAS GRABBED REX’S LEGS AND TWISTED HIM INTO POSITION, LOCKING HIM IN REX’S OWN “REX LOCK”!!!!

Rich Russillo: TALK ABOUT THE ULTIMATE FORM OF DISRESPECT! DARYL HAS APPLIED REX’S OWN SUBMISSION TO HIM ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO COUNTER THIS, IT WOULD BE REX, BUT DARYL HAS IT APPLIED EXPERTLY. ALL OF THOSE YEARS OF WATCHING REX APPLY IT IN MATCHES AND PERFECT IT IN TRAINING. WHAT A BRILLIANT MOVE ON DARYL’S PART!

James Peters: We need to remember, though, that the decision needs to happen in the ring! Daryl can’t win this on the outside of the ring. And the referee has exited the ring, presumably going to tell that to Daryl .. BUT DARYL SHOVES THE REFEREE OFF OF HIM!

Rich Russillo: The referee stumbles to the ground, momentarily taking him out of the equation as he falls facing away from Daryl and Rex. Daryl has released the ‘Rex Lock’ and moves off of Rex. He’s reaching into his boot…

James Peters: THOSE ARE BRASS KNUCKLES, RICH! HE’S JUST PULLED BRASS KNUCKS FROM HIS BOOT — AND HE SLAMS HIS LOADED FIST INTO REX’S TEMPLE AS HE’S PUSHING HIMSELF UP TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES! OH MY GOD! REX MCALLISTER WAS JUST BLINDSIDED WITH THE BRASS KNUCKLES WHEN THE REFEREE WAS DOWN!

Rich Russillo: DARYL GRABS REX AND ROLLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING AFTER CONCEALING THE KNUCKS. DARYL MOVES INTO THE RING AND IMMEDIATELY PUTS REX BACK INTO THE “WORKING OUT THE KICKS” LIONTAMER! REX MCALLISTER IS LIFELESS! HE’S NOT MOVING A MUSCLE, THAT SHOT KNOCKED HIM OUT COLD..

James Peters: THE REFEREE HAS MOVED BACK INTO THE RING AND NOTICES THE SUBMISSION. DARYL HAS PULLED BACK ON REX’S LEGS, APPLYING MORE PRESSURE TO HIS SPINE WHERE THE POINT OF HIS KNEE IS DIGGING IN – BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYWAY, REX IS OUT COLD. THE REFEREE DROPS TO HIS KNEES BESIDE REX, TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH HIM….

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: IT’S OVER! THE REFEREE HAS CALLED FOR THE BELL! DARYL KINKADE HAS DEFEATED REX MCALLISTER IN A SUBMISSION MATCH! HOLLLYYYYY!!!!

James Peters: He had to use brass knuckles to seal the deal, Rich — cleverly concealing the weapon while the referee was turned away.

Rich Russillo: This win is HUGE for Daryl Kinkade, no matter how it came. The son has beaten the father. The protege has passed the mentor. DARYL KINKADE WITH THE WIN!

Bella Braxton: Due to Rex McAllister being unable to respond, the referee has stopped the match. Your winner.. DARYL KINKADE!

( “Snakeskin” plays again and Daryl rolls out of the ring in victory. Walking backward up the ramp, never taking his eyes off of Rex in the ring.)

James Peters: I don’t know about you, Rich, but I don’t think this is going to be over anytime soon. I agree with you though. This win is monumentous for Daryl’s career. Rex is one of the top talents in the world, and on paper – Daryl Kinkade has forced him to pass out.

Rich Russillo: The final decision is the only thing that matters, James, and the final decision is that Daryl Kinkade is victorious. Both men fought hard and it could have went either way, but this night belonged to Daryl.

(Commercial break for PETA featuring the GOAT Ahren Fournier. He is seen eating a big, bloody steak, wearing leather and fur. :wow:)

(Tempest returns and Bella is seen standing in the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: You are god damn right it is. And it is for the Big Bhris Bhampionship!!!

(Members of the audience are shown passing out from anticipation. Big Mike briefly appears on the TitanTron giving a thumbs up while holding a plate of Belgian chicken and waffles.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…

(“Fat” by Weird Al hits as the crowd explodes off their feet.)

Bella Braxton: From Little Rock, Arkansas allegedly weighing in at 450 pounds… he is “The Absolute Unit” CHUUUUUUUUUUUUDDDDDD!!!

James Peters: Absolutely amazing that this man is coming out here to compete tonight after his heart attack earlier.

Rich Russillo: It just goes to show how prestigious the Big Bhris Bhampionship really is in this business! Chudd is so stunning and brave! But where is he… he hasn’t come out…

(After several moments Chudd emerges slowly from behind the curtain breathing heavily and clutching his chest.)

James Peters: HE’S HERE!!! BAH GAWD THE RESILIENCE OF THIS MAN!

(The camera cuts to a man in the crowd who is shown crying in an emotional state at the stunning bravery of Chudd.)

Rich Russillo: Possibly the most inspiring EAW moment of the year. Chudd clutching his chest in one hand and clutching his burrito in the other. Much respect to the homie.

(La Marmelade de Ma Grand Mere” by Florent Caubien hits!!!)

Bella Braxton: From Triffouillis-les-Oies, France weighing in at 204 pounds he is the “Butter Knife” PRRRRRRRRRRROVVVVENCALLLL!!!

(Provencal makes his way to the ring walking past Chudd as he eats a hot pocket in front of him before entering the ring.)

James Peters: Here he comes Rich! The winner of the Hot Pocket eating contest and my pick for the next Big Bhris Bhampion!

Rich Russillo: Like hell! The only reason that he won that eating contest was because Chudd’s heart gave out!

James Peters: You have to have a lot of heart to make it in this business Rich and nobody has more heart than Provencal!!!

(Provencal’s starving horde of children are shown huddling together for warmth at ringside. Provencal tossed the final bite of his hot pocket over to them as they begin to fight each other to obtain it.)

Rich Russillo: Awww they are adorable! I hope Provencal can win this or they might not eat again for weeks!

(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massare hits as the crowd comes unglued.)

Bella Braxton: From Jacksonville, Florida weighing in at 260 pounds he is “THE” WOOOOOOOOOOGIEMAN!!!

(Woogieman makes his way to the ring past Chudd who is still slowly making his way down the ramp towards the ring.)

James Peters: Chudd really should have brought his scooter out here tonight! But honestly even then he could never outpace the incredible speed of Woogieman!

Rich Russillo: Can you smell it James?

James Peters: Well I smell something but I thought that was just Chudd.

(“Here Comes The Boom” blasts over the speakers as a respectful silence falls over the crowd who awaits the arrival of the champion with the anticipation only ever seen for Pain for Pride main events.)

Bella Braxton: And finally… I was unable to find his signup so I have no idea how much he weighs or where he is from…

Rich Russillo: Personally I believe that he lives in each of our hearts. <3

Bella Braxton: Wait I found it. From San Jose, California weighing in at 160 pounds…hee is the Big Bhris Bhampion… ELLLLLLL LAAAAAAAANDERRRRRRSONNNN!!!

(El Landerson makes his way down to the ring with his Championship defiantly held high in the air. Landerson takes in the adoration of the crowd as he jogs down the ring past Chudd into the ring and poses on the top turnbuckle for his millions of fans.)

James Peters: Bah gawd Rich! I got goosebumps just watching this legend make his entrance!

Rich Russillo: Same here James. This is going to be Match of the Year hands down. Hell let’s already name it Match of the Decade because nothing will ever top this!!! It’s gotta be better than that shitty Decade Awards list that came out a couple years ago at least!

(El Landerson hands his championship off to the timekeeper and also challenges him to a Steel Cage Match on Battleground show. The referee goes to call for the bell but the timekeeper doesn’t ring it.)

James Peters: Wait what’s going on???

Rich Russillo: Lazy ass timekeeper! Do your god damn job!

Referee: We can’t start this match until all four competitors are in the ring!

(The camera zooms in on Chudd who is leaning against the ring steps dripping in sweat from his long walk to the ring.)

Chudd: Don’t worry about me guys! Go on ahead I will catch up! Just give me a minute I’ll be right there!

(The referee is shown angrily yelling at Chudd to hurry his fat ass up and begins a 10 count.)

Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!! FOUR!!! FIVE!!!

James Peters: Chudd is standing up! If he can’t make it into the ring he will lose this opportunity by forfeit!!

Referee: SIX!!! SEVEN!!! EIGHT!!!

Rich Russillo: CHUDD HAS ONE LEG IN THE RING!! BUT HE IS LOSING HIS BALANCE FROM LIFTING HIS LEG SO HIGH!!! NO CHUDD!!! NOT THIS WAY!!!!

Referee: NINE!!!!

James Peters: CHUDD FALLS!!!

Referee: TEN!!!!

Rich Russillo: But Chudd fell into the ring! Holy shit that was close!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: But as soon as the bell rings Woogieman intelligently leaps on top of Chudd for the pin!!!

Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!!

Rich Russillo: But Provencal breaks up the pin!!! I’m not sure why Woogie thought he could go for a pinfall in this Fatal 4 Way Match with two of his opponents just standing by.

James Peters: Provencal now locking Woogieman up in a headlock on the mat as Chudd lies motionless on the canvas. Are you sure he is alright???

(The referee is shown checking on Chudd’s condition.)

Rich Russillo: Nah he is just tired from getting in the ring. Give him a little catnap and he will be ready for action! Wait look out!!!

James Peters: Off the ropes!!! El Landerson with a Springboard Dropkick to the face of Woogie as Provencal holds him in a headlock! The champ taking control here tonight! Provencal back up as he swings at Landerson but misses! Landerson runs the ropes as he collides with Provencal swinging around him with a Spinning Headscissors Takedown! Landerson then immediately follows all of that up with a stunning Standing Shooting Star Press! But he’s not done yet!!! Instead of going for a pin Landerson grabs the leg of Provencal and proceeds to twist him into a submission maneuver! What the hell is this?!?!? Landerson has tied up Provencal in a submission hold so intelligent… so advanced… I don’t even know how to call this!

Rich Russillo: How is his foot and his neck able to twist that way it’s like he just completely folded his opponent up in a way I cannot even describe! What an absolute submission artist! I haven’t seen innovation like this since the last time I watched Japanese wrestling!!!

(Wrestling “journalists” are shown at ringside adding a sixth golden star to their review of the match.)

James Peters: Provencal is about to tap but he looks out to ringside and sees the tear stained faces of his countless children! He somehow finds the strength to hold on!!! WAIT WOOGIEMAN!!! WOOGIEMAN OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A DIVING HEADBUTT INTO LANDERSON!!! HOLY SHIT THAT ANGLE!!!

(A replay is shown of Woogieman doing a literal Diving Headbutt onto Landerson breaking up his submission.)

Rich Russillo: Usually when we see Diving Headbutts in wrestling the wrestler keeps their body horizontal and drops the front of their head onto the opponent. Woogieman just dived off the top rope like he was diving into a swimming pool and landed vertically on the top of his head onto Landerson!

James Peters: That seems like it would be really bad for his neck and spine Rich. Don’t try this at home kids!!!

Rich Russillo: Woogieman is motionless after his Diving Headbutt as is Landerson. Provencal crawls out from the carnage as he places an arm up over Landerson!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!! TWOOOO!!!!!

James Peters: Landerson kicks out! The desire to remain champion keeping him alive here tonight!!! Woogieman now moving too! How is he even alive? Chudd still motionless however.. He has had the hardest night out of everyone so far in this match.

(Chudd is heard snoring in the ring as the referee screams at him to get his fat ass up.)

Rich Russillo: Woogieman, Provencal, and Landerson all make it back to their feet and begin to trade blows in the ring! Provencal gets hit with a hard right from Landerson as he falls back… but he lands on Chudd’s belly and bounces right back up! The momentum from Chudd’s flab sends Provencal flying forward as he takes down Woogieman with a vicious Clothesline sending Woogie to the outside!!! And the momentum sends Provencal tumbling to the outside with him! El Landerson the last man standing in the ring right now! What does he have planned next???

James Peters: El Landerson soaking up the cheers of the crowd as he stands in the ring being admired by the masses! This man is truly the epitome of a champion! He represents EAW, he represents Voltage, he represents Mexico. He is absolutely everything that an honorable luchador should be!!!

(The camera cuts to El Landerson casually taking his mask off in the ring so he can pick his nose.)

Rich Russillo: Wait what the hell is that?!?!?

(Suddenly a looming shadow begins to darken over El Landerson who turns around to face the terror standing behind him.)

James Peters: IT’S CHUDD!! CHUDD HAS AWOKEN!!! IT SEEMS THAT PROVENCAL FALLING ON HIM WOKE HIM UP AND HE DOES NOT LOOK HAPPY ABOUT IT!!!

Rich Russillo: Chudd letting out a booming war cry as he grabs the face of El Landerson with both hands and then drives his skull crashing into Landerson! A devastating headbutt but Chudd isn’t letting go! Chudd bashes his head into Landerson’s repeatedly and now what is he doing! Chudd biting into Landerson now! Chudd using those experienced teeth as weapons in this match! I heard that he files his teeth with a nail file to make them extra sharp! Chudd has drawn blood! Chudd like a vampire out here tonight as he feasts upon El Landerson! I can only imagine what Landerson tastes like but I suspect it may still be better than Taco Bell!!!

James Peters: Don’t hate Rich you racist bastard. Taco Bell is amazing and I’m going there tonight after the show just to fuck with you. But Chudd is clearly fucking with Landerson here as he palms the back of Landerson’s head sending him flying face down onto the mat with force! Chudd takes a sumo stance as he notices Provencal and Woogieman getting up on the outside! Chudd challenging them to come at him! Provencal and Woogieman look at each other and nod as they come into the ring to unleash a double team assault on Chudd! But Chudd will not be moved! Chudd absorbing the blows from both Provencal and Woogieman as he shoves Woogieman back! But Provencal ducks underneath Chudd’s slow moving arm! Provencal with a Running Enzuigiri connects to the side of Chudd’s head! Chudd staggers a bit! Is the big man going down!?!? NO! Chudd regained his balance!! Chudd charges forward with a Running Splash tackling Provencal as he charges forward and sandwiches Provencal between him and Woogieman.

Chudd: Mmm sandwiches.

Rich Russillo: Did he hear you James? What amazing hearing… yet another one of Chudd’s many talents!

James Peters: WAIT FROM BEHIND!!! EL LANDERSON OFF THE TOP ROPE!!! LANDERSON WITH A MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP AS HE COMES CRASHING DOWN ON CHUDD!!! BUT CHUDD CATCHES LANDERSON!!! NO WAIT! LANDERSON SWINGS AROUND AND DROPS CHUDD WITH A DDT!!! LANDERSON SPIKING CHUDD TO THE MAT AS HE FALLS TO THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!! TWOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THRR-

Rich Russillo: Chudd powers out sending Landerson flying into the air! But Landerson lands on his feet! Landerson off the ropes as he dives into Chudd with a Running Dropkick!! Chudd knocked the hell out and Landerson now running the ropes… Springboard Moonsault to Chudd connects!!! But Woogieman is back in the ring as he grabs Landerson from behind and tosses him shoulder first into the turnbuckle! Landerson connecting with the metal ringpost! Provencal now back in the ring as he kicks Woogieman hard in the gut! Provencal with a Snap Suplex on Woogieman as he has taken control of this match! Provencal seems confused about what to do next as he grabs El Landerson pulling the champion to his feet! Provencal connects to Landerson with a thunderous bitch slap! Landerson cannot even believe the disrespect! Provencal grabs Landerson as he hooks the arm! Going for a Suplex attempt here!

James Peters: NO WAIT!!! PROVENCAL JUST COUNTERED INTO THE PETIT PAQUET! THE SMALL PACKAGE OUTTA NOWHERE!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!!! THRE-

Rich Russillo: Holy shit look at- No wait he ju- I think I just saw hi- Oh shit I can’t believe all of th- Are you kidding about this I don’t even kno-

James Peters: Are you okay Rich? You seem to be having trouble finishing your sentences on commentary here tonight.

Rich Russillo: I will beat your ass you little bi-

James Peters: I bet. Holy shit what is th- Shit now I am doing it to- Somebody stop me from this pain I can’t take anym-

Rich Russillo: CHUDD JUST LUNGED IN TO BREAK UP THE PINFALL!!! HOW CAN HE EVEN JUMP?!?!?

James Peters: Chudd just landed on top of Landerson and Provencal crushing them!! I’m not sure if he can get up Rich! Landerson and Provencal screaming out in pain as Chudd struggles to get a leg up… But he trips! Chudd trips and falls down onto them again! I think they are dead now! No man can survive that much weight falling on top of them! Wait look from behind!

Rich Russillo: It’s Woogieman and he has a sick smile on his face! Woogieman charges in but Chudd manages to get an arm up and shoves Woogie back into the corner! Woogie reaches into his tights! He is going deep down inside! What will he find in there?!?!?

James Peters: Oh god is that what I think it is?!?!?

Rich Russillo: Woogieman just pulled out a rusty knife! Somebody call security this is getting too dangerous!

James Peters: Calm down Rich. It’s just a knife. This is a Fatal 4 Way match so there is no disqualifications. This is all perfectly legal and fine. I certainly have no problems with it.

Rich Russillo: You monster James!!! Woogieman is going in on Chudd with the knife!! He is about to carve into his rolls!!!

James Peters: It’s okay. He has plenty to spare.

Rich Russillo: But Chudd blocks the knife! Woogieman drops it! No wait! Oh god!

James Peters: The knife nearly hits the mat but Woogieman catches it right before it falls! He thrusts the knife upward towards Chudd!!!

Rich Russillo: … I can’t watch this. Oh god my eyes!!!

James Peters: This is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe we just witnessed this in a wrestling match of all places…

(Woogieman and Provencal are shown crawled into separate corners now passing out from what they have just seen.)

Rich Russillo: Well at least he didn’t stab him. But maybe that would have been better than this…

(A replay airs showing Woogieman grabbing the knife and thrusting upwards. Woogie stabs into Chudd’s tights severing the belt. Chudd’s tights drop to the mat with a sickening thud as the entire audience is forced to look away from the pink thong Chudd was wearing underneath.)

James Peters: *vomit noises are heard*

Rich Russillo: I feel you buddy let it all out. Woogieman is sickened! He backs away as he drops the rusty blood covered knife in horror and the referee quickly kicks it out of the ring where a security guard snatches it for safety reasons. Woogieman backs into the corner but Chudd charges in with a Splash!!! Woogie collapses down in the corner as bolts and screws come unscrewed from the turnbuckle due to the impact of Chudd!!!

James Peters: Why can’t stuff like this happen on Empire instead? Provencal and Landerson up now as they charge in at Chudd! BUT CHUDD TAKES THEM BOTH OUT WITH A HIP BUMP! Landerson is shown flying out of the ring again from the impact as Provencal crawls onto the apron and lies there motionless in shock. Chudd slowly turns around and looks at Woogieman still collapses in the corner. Oh god that smirk on his face! What is he thinking?!??

Rich Russillo: CHUDD BACKS DAT ASS UP INTO THE CORNER AS HE DELIVERS A STINKFACE TO WOOGIEMAN!!! PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!!

James Peters: WOOGIEMAN IS AN NWF ORIGINAL! HE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS!!!

(A replay of Chudd’s stinkface is shown in slow motion featuring a shot of Chudd’s smiling face as Woogieman’s muffled screams can be heard.)

Rich Russillo: The referee pulling Chudd off of Woogieman now! He was in there for awhile James! He might not have been able to breathe!!! Just think what the air must have been like I saw Chudd eating an entire buffet of burritos backstage earlier!

James Peters: *vomit noises are heard*

Rich Russillo: Are you okay buddy? I hope you aren’t playing sick to get out of doing commentary. We have a long ass show ahead of us!

James Peters: *crying noises are heard*

Rich Russillo: It looks like Woogieman survived. The referee has confirmed that he is breathing and we all know how trustworthy referees are in this business so I trust it. Chudd now standing up as he begins to pat his gut like drums. What is this…

(The entire crowd is shown pounding on the chair in front of them as Chudd leads the choir from the ring.)

Chudd: I’M HUNGRY!!!

James Peters: The crowd on their feet as Chudd reaches down to his tights and pulls them back up tying the belt together. Well thank god I don’t gotta look at that anymore! But what is he doing he is digging through his tights trying to find something… Chudd pulls out… oh no is that what I think it is?!?!?!

Rich Russillo: It is! Chudd pulling out a bottle of ketchup!!! Chudd begins emptying the ketchup out onto the ring mat! Oh shit this looks too much like blood we may need to use the black and white video filter for the replays of this! Chudd walks over to the corner as he grabs Provencal…

Chudd: RAAAAAA IT’S TIME FOR FRENCH FRIES!!!

James Peters: Chudd now lifting up Provencal as he begins to dip him head first into the puddle of ketchup! Is this racist? I’m pretty sure this is racist.

Rich Russillo: Whatever it is it seems to be working as Chudd dips one of Provencal’s fingers into the ketchup and takes a bite!!! Provencal screams in pain!!! CHUDD’S RAZOR SHARP TEETH SINK INTO THE FLESH OF PROVENCAL’S FINGER-

James Peters: WAIT IT’S WOOGIEMAN! HE’S BACK UP! WOOGIEMAN CHARGES AT CHUDD WITH A SUPERKICK! BUT CHUDD CATCHES THE LEG AND BITES INTO IT LIKE A DRUMSTICK!

Rich Russillo: Admit it James you stole that commentary line from someone else and have been just waiting for a chance to use it.

James Peters: I admit nothing! Wait El Landerson is back up! Chudd reaches into his tights again… CHUDD PULLS OUT A GLASS JAR OF SALSA!!!

Rich Russillo: CHUDD SMASHES THE GLASS JAR OF SALSA INTO THE HEAD OF LANDERSON! WAIT WHY DIDN’T YOU QUESTION IF THIS ONE WAS RACIST JAMES??? CHUDD FALLS TO THE MAT ROLLING OVER PROVENCAL AND WOOGIEMAN BEFORE SITTING UP ON LANDERSON’S CHEST! CHUDD DIPPING CHIPS INTO THE SALSA TO EAT AS THE REFEREE MAKES THE COUNT!!!

Referee: ONEE!!!! TWOOO!!!!! THREEE!!!!

James Peters: NO WAIT!! CHUDD JUST FELL OVER CLUTCHING HIS CHEST AGAIN!!! IS HE HAVING ANOTHER HEART ATTACK?!?!?

Rich Russillo: Ummm no James. Both Woogieman and Provencal got up and delivered concurrent Dropkicks to his chest to knock him off Landerson. I’m not sure how you missed that…

James Peters: My bad… I’m a terrible commentator I don’t know how I got this job. But now it looks like Woogieman and Provencal are double teaming Chudd in the ring! Stomping away at him to keep the big man down! Woogieman kicking Chudd towards the corner. WAIT FROM BEHIND!!!

Rich Russillo: Provencal with a low blow from behind on Woogieman! What a betrayal! Provencal has to fight for his brood tho and that means doing anything to win tho! Come on Chudd! We need you! The age of the Big Bhudd Bhampionship is upon us!!!

James Peters: Chudd begins to rise as Provencal measures him from behind… NO WAIT OFF THE TOP ROPE!!! EL LANDERSON!!! LANDERSON WITH A FLYING HURRICANRANA TO PROVENCAL AS HE THROWS PROVENCAL RIGHT INTO CHUDD!!! PROVENCAL BOUNCES OFF CHUDD AND COLLIDES WITH WOOGIEMAN AS THE TWO OF THEM FALL OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE!!! CHUDD FALLS OVER LANDING CHEST FIRST ON THE MIDDLE ROPE!!! OH MY GOD!!!

(The entire ring is shown rising slightly on the opposite side about to tip over from the weight of Chudd on the ropes.)

Rich Russillo: I have no idea how this is even physically possible but Landerson doesn’t care! The champion is setting up for it! LANDERSON RUNS THE ROPES… LANDERSON SIX ONE NINE CONNECTS!!! CHUDD FALLS BACK ROLLING INTO THE POOL OF KETCHUP!!! LANDERSON TO THE TOP ROPE… MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP!!! LANDERSON COMES CRASHING DOWN ON CHUDD BOUNCING OFF HIM LIKE A TRAMPOLINE!!! BUT HE FLIPS AROUND DOING A SHOOTING STAR PRESS IN MID-BOUNCE AND LANDS RIGHT BACK ON CHUDD!!! THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL THE BIG BHRIS BHAMPION… ELLLLLLLLLLLLL LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANDDDEERRRRRSON!!!!

(“Here Comes the Boom” hits as the referee awards El Landerson with the Big Bhris Bhampionship in the ring. Provencal’s kids are shown angrily throwing their hot pockets in the ring splattering sauce all over Landerson’s championship.)

James Peters: Chudd looks angry now! Look how wide his eyes are after what those disrespectful brats did to the championship he almost won!! I thought those kids were starving! How did they get so many hot pockets? I feel lied to…

Rich Russillo: No wait! Chudd licking his lips as he bites into the Big Bhris Bhampionship!!! Chudd consuming this title belt in the ring! What are you doing man that’s not yours!!!! You didn’t earn the right to eat that!!!

(It only takes a few bites before the Big Bhris Bhampionship is completely consumed. El Landerson looks appalled.)

James Peters: Well we will have to get Landerson a new one. I’m pretty sure that title was a $3 piece of shit anyway.

Rich Russillo: Are you kidding James? That was the most prestigious title in the business and we just witnessed the match of the century! Of the millennium!!!!!! Chudd overcame the odds with his stunning bravery! From heart attack survivor to almost being wrestling champion! What an inspiration for the kids!!! But Landerson came out the winner in the end! Get this man a new title immediately! Make it out of pure gold with diamonds and rubies and emeralds and…

(The camera cuts to an advertisement for McDonald’s french fries which airs on the TitanTron in the arena causing Provencal to cry in the ring.)

(5 Minute Intermission to give the crowd a chance to calm down after the match of the decade.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Bella Braxton: AND IS FOR THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first!

( ‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi blasts through the speaker. The crowd jumps up to their feet, some with bristol boards in their hand, reading a bunch of words as the light begins to flicker, going completely out. Footage of Myles’ performing inside ring begins to glitch, reappearing and disappearing, perfectly syncing with his theme song. The lights flip back on while the chorus of the song begins. The camera pans across the venue, stopping at it focuses on Myles, who is wearing his occasional Gold and Black attire, with a matching cape draped over him and an intimidating skull mask made of gold. Myles poses on the stage, taking in the energy of the crowd before marching down to the ring )

Bella Braxton: From Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 208 pounds….. HE IS THE SOLDIER…. MYYYLLLLLESSSSSSS!!

James Peters: What an opportunity Myles has for himself tonight, the EAW New Breed Championship, a championship that jump started the careers of those who are inducted into the EAW Hall Of Fame. Myles has proven why he deserves his opportunity as he has beaten Xander Payne, a former EAW New Breed Champion, two times in a row.

Rich Russillo: However, this match is a wildcard, no pun intended. Both of these men started their EAW careers in Battleground, where Myles would be in the main event, overlooking The Visual Prophet. Vizzy is a completely different challenge for Myles compared to Drake King and Xander Payne. Not only is he the most charismatic person in the building, but he also has the ability to knock you out cold and that is what Myles needs to watch out for.

( As Myles hops into the center of the squared circle, walking over to the northeast corner of the ring to stretch and prepare for his championship match, the lights go down as the crowd instantly gets quiet. A spotlight appears on the stage. Silence is abundant for about a minute until the sounds of a military drum roll can be heard coming from the public announcement speakers.)

Rich Russillo: What’s going on?

(Out walks a teenager wearing full military attire as he thumps away at his drum hanging from his neck. The cadet is as serious as can be as the young Caucasian kid makes his way down the ramp and stops midway. Suddenly, from on top of the stage, out rolls a military tank painted completely in purple as the fans erupt with disdain and anger.)

James Peters: He just brought out a freaking tank? It can’t be? All that purple? It’s got to be…

( BOOM!! )

(A burst of pyro shoots out of the barrel of the tank as gold sparks fly into the air. The drummer stops as the tank parks on top of the stage. The drummer hops off the ramp and leaves as the lights turn purple and “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen plays over the speakers.)

Rich Russillo: Yeah, it’s him! It’s the Visual Prophet! This is so elaborate and gaudy, it could only be him!

James Peters: At The Iconic Cup, he mocked Tyler Wolfe by entering the arena wearing a Wolf fur alongside Veena Adams who also had a fur on. This time? It seems to be a mocking of Myles and his Soldier nickname as Viz hops out of the tank!

Rich Russillo: He’s not done mocking Myles either! He’s wearing Purple army fatigue tights and has a military jacket on! This guy is insane! I guess Myles attempting to injure him earlier didn’t teach Viz anything!

(Viz stands on top of the stage after hopping out the top of the army tank as fans bombard him with heckling and boos. Prophet stands poised, he has his New Breed Championship around his waist, his army jacket on, a pair of aviator sunglasses, and his army-themed tights as he pokes his lips out at the fans and Myles.)

Rich Russillo: And now here come the gyrations!

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT…Hailing from Detroit, Michigan…weighing in at 230 pounds…He is the New Breed Champion…”The Sovereign”…THE VISSSSSUAALLLL PROOOOOOPHET!!!

James Peters: Viz stops as Bella announces him and…oh my goodness, he’s standing and saluting Myles who is not amused what so ever!

Rich Russillo: The guy is a showboating son of a gun but he will have to bring everything he has in his arsenal to get past Myles! Prophet makes his way down the ramp finally as Myles is anxiously waiting for a chance to shut up and end the reign of the current New Breed Champion!

(Viz makes his way down the ramp, avoiding the fans who try to reach over and touch him. Prophet walks up the stairs and enters the ring the middle rope. Viz begins to spin in the middle of the ring with his arms wide open and with lips puckered. The referee holds back Myles as Viz stops and turns to his challenger.)

🎶 Are you ready, hey, are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the doorway, the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat 🎶

James Peters: More gyration, he’s trying to rile up Myles before the match even starts! Looks like that knee may be 100%!

Rich Russillo: Tyler Wolfe nearly ended The Sovereign’s reign at The Iconic Cup last weekend but thanks to Veena Adams, Viz escaped still champion. With Veena Adams gone and out of the picture, will Viz be able to get past Myles and defend his title again?

🎶 Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one is gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I’m gonna get you, too
Another one bites the dust 🎶

(Viz stops gyrating towards Myles as he runs and climbs a nearby turnbuckle as he does his signature pose and gold sparks fall from the ceiling.)

James Peters: What’s with this guy and golden showers?

Rich Russillo: I may need a shower after watching this spectacle!

(As the pyro stops, Viz removes his military jacket and aviators as he hops down and gets ready for his championship match.)

( DING! DING! DING! )

James Peter: That crowd still on their feet after the referee called for the bell while The Visual Prophet and Myles walk towards the center of the ring, standing in front of each other as the dividing crowd chants “Let’s Go Vizzy” and “Let’s Go, Myles”. The Visual Prophet confused as Myles’ chants begin to overpower his chants. Or maybe he’s confused because people are actually chanting for him. Who the fuck know even knows any more?! Myles with a smirk on his face as he extends his hand, looking for a handshake.

Rich Russillo: What in the world is Myles thinking? Earlier tonight, Myles put him through a table and he believes he could get an ounce of respect from the New Breed Sovereign? He must be crazy. Vizzy extends his hand, but Myles turns around, bows his head forward AND FLIPS HIS HAIR BACK, PROJECTING WATER AND SWEAT ON VIZZY.

James Peters: The Visual Prophet is livid! Myles showing his disrespectful attitude to the New Breed Champion and he is trying to get into his mind as he walks around the ring with a smirk on his face. VIZZY CHARGES INTO MYLES! Myles dodges the clothesline, sending jabs and punches to the body of Vizzy, forcing him into the ropes as Myles Irish whips him into the opposite side of the ring!

Rich Russillo: Vizzy rebounds off the ropes as Myles runs into him, VIZZY LIFTS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDER!! HIP TOSS!! NO!!! MYLES FLIPS OVER HIS SHOULDER, LANDING RIGHT ONTO HIS FEET!!! Myles quickly running back towards the ropes, back into Vizzy as he jumps upwards! HURRICANRANA!! BUT VIZZY FLIPS FORWARD RIGHT ONTO HIS FEET!!!

James Peters: Myles leaning onto the turnbuckles with an impressed look on his face while The Visual Prophet focuses onto Myles, gyrating his hips. MYLES QUICKLY DASHES INTO HIM, ROLLING HIM UP!!!! MYLES GETS UP TO HIS FEET AS VIZZY IS ON HIS KNEES!! Myles now begins to gyrate his hips, mocking Visual Prophet!

Myles (Off Mic): Do you see how stupid this is?!

Rich Russillo: VIZZY GRABS MYLES’ FOOT, SWEEPING IT DOWN AS HE BOUNCES ONTO HIM FOR THE COVER!!! The referee was unable to get a count in as Myles powers out of it! Both men make their way up to their feet! The Prophet runs past Myles, bouncing off the ropes as MYLES LIFTS HIS LEG UP!! BICYCLE KNEE!! NO!!! PROPHET CAUGHT HIS KNEE!!!

James Peters: Vizzy grabbing his knee while Myles is hopping on one foot. The Visual Prophet telling him that he ain’t stupid as he shoves him away! HE SPINS AROUND!! IKE TURNER SPECIAL!!! SPINNING BACK FIST!! BUT MYLES CAUGHT HIS ARM!!! Myles holding onto his arm, pulling his shoulder back as Vizzy is in pain!

Rich Russillo: Both men playing mind games! MYLES WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS WAIST, LIFTS HIM UP!!! VIZZY FLIPS OVER HIS BACK, LANDING ONTO HIS FEET!! The Visual Prophet rolls him into a pin! Myles quickly getting out of it once again as both men get to their feet! Vizzy charges into Myles, but Myles grabs him and pushes him out of the ring and onto the apron!

James Peters: Myles runs the ropes and into Vizzy! VIZZY CAUGHT HIM WITH A SIDEKICK!!! Myles staggered as Vizzy recuperates on the apron! MYLES USES HIS LEFT FOOT TO HOP UP THE MIDDLE ROPE AND SHATTERS THE JAW OF VIZZY WITH A KNEE STRIKE!!! SENDING HIM OUT TO RINGSIDE! Myles runs towards the ropes, rebounding and JUMPING OVER THE TOP ROPE!! TOPE CON HILO!!!!! MYLES CRASHES DOWN TO VIZZY AND PUSHES HIM BACK INTO THE RING!!

Rich Russillo: Myles not going for a cover as he begins to climb up the turnbuckle, overlooking Vizzy as he turns around! HE JUMPS UP!!! METEORA!! NO!! VIZZY GRABBED HIS FOOT, DUCKING THE METEORA AS HE ROLLED UP TO HIS FEET AND TRANSITIONED IT RIGHT INTO AN ANKLE LOCK!! WHAT AN UNIQUE COUNTER FOR THE METEORA!! NO ONE EXPECTED THAT!!

James Peters: The Visual Prophet has him in an ankle lock, twisting his ankle as he screams in pain! Myles didn’t go for the pin and went for a high-risk maneuver and didn’t get what he wanted and that costed him! If Prophet gets down to his feet, fully wrapping his legs around his leg, he could be done for!

Rich Russillo: Myles uses his foot to push him away, sending him out of the ring! Myles slowly making his way to his feet as he limbs. He rolls under the bottom rope over to ringside, following Prophet as he walks over to us! MYLES CHARGES INTO HIM!! BUT PROPHET PICKS HIM UP! AND PLANTS HIM ONTO THE CONCRETE MAT WITH A SPINNING SPINEBUSTER!!!

James Peters: Myles’ back went crashing onto the concrete mat with that spinning spinebuster as Prophet pushes him into the ring to engage a cover!

ONE…
TWO

James Peters: KICK OUT!!! Prophet quickly wrapping his arms around his neck. A headlock sinked in as the crowd begins to chant him on. Myles fighting out of the headlock as Prophet begins to his feet planted on the mat, trying to get more leverage on Myles. Myles sending shoulder strikes to the midsection of Prophet, forcing him to release the hold!

Rich Russillo: Myles shoves him into the ropes, pushing him forward and into the other side. Myles jumps down as Vizzy hops right over him, running the ropes and back into Myles! HE JUMPS UP!! BUT MYLES CATCHES HIM!!! AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB!!! BUT HE ISN’T DONE AS HE STILL ON HIS FEET, HOLDING ONTO VIZZY AS HE LIFTS HIM OFF THE GROUND!! SPINS HIM AROUND AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH ANOTHER POWERBOMB!!! COVER!!!

ONE…

James Peters: The Prophet gets his shoulder up! Myles and The Prophet exchanging a number of moves and we are that point in the match where both men are exhausted. Myles now lifting him up to his feet, grabbing his arm as he irish whips him into the corner! PROPHET HOPS UP ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! SPINNING OVER AS HE SOARS!!! JUMPING KNEE STRIKE IN MID AIR!!! MYLES CAUGHT HIM WITH A KNEE STRIKE IN MID AIR AS PROPHET REELS INTO THE ROPES, QUICKLY GETTING OUT OF THE RING!!

Rich Russillo: Myles waiting for The Prophet to get up to his feet to perform another aerial maneuver. The Prophet grabs something in his pocket and slides it into the ring as Myles runs the ropes! The referee moves quickly to grab the weapon as Vizzy peaks under the apron sheets! MYLES DIVES!!! AND THE PROPHET THROWS A STEEL CHAIR TO THE FACE OF MYLES!!! THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT!!

James Peters: THE NEW BREED SOVEREIGN OUTSMARTING MYLES AS HE SLIDES INTO THE RING! Vizzy grabs Myles by his head, pulling it down as he grabs him! TWISTING DDT!!!! COVER!!

James Peters: MYLES GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!! The Visual Prophet nearly finishing the match with his signature Twisting DDT. He slowly pulls Myles up to his feet with a smirk planted onto his face.

James Peters: Myles not taking it lightly AS HE SLAPS THE FACE OF PROPHET! AND EXPLODES ONTO THE VISUAL PROPHET WITH PUNCHES!!!! PROPHET SPINS AROUND!! AND STUNS HIM WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST!! The Prophet runs the ropes AND IS MET WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE FROM MYLES!! MYLES SHATTERING THE JAW OF THE PROPHET AS HE HOOKS HIM UP!!!

James Peters: This could be it! HE IS PERCHED AT THE TOP!!! MYLES GETS UP TO HIS FEET AND HOPS ONTO TOP, JOINING PROPHET!! He caught The Visual Prophet off guard as he picks him up, hoisting him in a fireman’s carry! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS HE THINKING!?!?! WITH VIZZY ON HIS SHOULDERS, HE HOPS OFF THE TOP!!! AND VIZZY GOES CRASHING ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!! SECOND ROPE DROP DOWN!!!

Rich Russillo: Myles quickly picking him up! HE’S GOT HIM HANGING IN A CANADIAN RACK!! AND SPINS HIM RIGHT INTO A DDT!!! THIS COULD BE IT!! COVER!!

ONE…
TWO…
THRE-

Rich Russillo: NO!!! THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP IS STILL WITH THE VISUAL PROPHET!!! The Visual Prophet rolling under the bottom rope, resting on the top of the apron as Myles maps in his mind on what he plans to do next. Myles steps through the middle rope, pulling on Prophet’s head as he grabs his tights, using it lift him up vertically into the air! HE COULD BE LOOKING FOR A RUNNING SUPLEX ONTO THE APRON!!!

James Peters: But The Visual Prophet flips over his head, going over the top rope and landing into the ring. Myles turns around, trying to bang his shoulder into the midsection of Vizzy, but Vizzy countered with a knee strike! Myles hanging from the middle rope as The Visual Prophet begins to develop a smile onto his face. He climbs the top rope while Myles is still unconscious! VIZZY SOARS!!! AND CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW DROP ONTO THE HANGING MYLES!!! COVER!!

ONE…
TWO…
THRE-

James Peters: HE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!! MYLES KICKS OUT!!!! When The Visual Prophet connected with the elbow drop, Myles’ head went spiking into the canvas and that must’ve caused a concussion. Myles laid out on the canvas, looking up at the ceiling while the Prophet uses the ropes to get up to his feet. He is reeling his shoulder, stretching it as he yells at Myles to get up!

Rich Russillo: The Visual Prophet appears to be going for his Kiss To The Head! If he connects with this, that would secure the chances of him retaining tonight. Myles crawling over to the referee, using his pants to get to his feet as Prophet is in the corner, stalking his prey! PROPHET CHARGES INTO HIM!! MYLES DODGES AND PROPHET CHARGES INTO THE REFEREE!! BUT PROPHET HALTED AT THE RIGHT SECOND, AVOIDING THE IMPACT INTO THE REFEREE!!

James Peters: Myles runs into the corner and back, right into Prophet as he turns around! PROPHET DODGES HIM AND MYLES SENDS THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING WITH A KNEE STRIKE!!! THE REFEREE IS OUT!!! Myles just took out the person he needs to win the EAW New Breed Championship! Myles looking down onto ringside as medical staff attend to the referee, he may have shattered his jaw!

Rich Russillo: Myles focuses his attention onto the Prophet! PROPHET WITH A LOW BLOW!! NO!! MYLES CAUGHT HIS FOOT, HOLDING ONTO IT AS HE SPINS HIM AROUND!!! AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE STRIKE!!! MYLES GRABS HIS ARM, HOOKING HIM INTO A PUMP HANDLE POSITION! DEEEEEE FACCTOO- PROPHET JUMPS OVER MYLES!!

Rich Russillo: …….

James Peters: HE KICKS OUT!!!! MYLES MIRACULOUSLY GETS HIS SHOULDER UP OFF THE CANVAS TO STAY ALIVE IN THIS MATCH!! After a low blow, Prophet Driver, and the Elbow Drop that won him the EAW New Breed Championship, Myles somehow had the energy to pop his shoulder off the canvas to continue this match.

Rich Russillo: The Visual Prophet thought those three moves would retain his EAW New Breed Championship, but the heart and soul of Myles said differently! The Prophet scanning the crowd with a worried look on his face as he hooks The Soldier up to his feet, what in the world. VIZZY MOCKING MYLES!!! HE’S GOING FOR HIS DE FACTO MOVE!!! VIZZY LIFTS HIM UP!!! BUT MYLES ROLLS HIM UP!!!

Myles on his feet, standing over the defenceless Visual Prophet as he walks over to the corner, leaning onto it as he begins to stomp the feet. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Myles this aggressive as he stomps the feet more, waiting for the EAW New Breed Champion to get up! Very slowly, Viz does get up and he turns around! MYLES CHARGES TOWARDS VIZ! VIZ FINDS A RUSH OF ADRENALINE AND RUSHES TOWARDS MYLES!!! KISS TO THE HEAD!!! NO!!!! MYLES EVADES IT!!!! VIZ IS SHOCKED!!!! MYLES GRABS VIZ!!! HE’S LOOKING FOR A DDT!!!!

James Peters: AND HE HAS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS! NO! NOT THIS WAY!!! KICK OUT MYLES!!! COME ON!!!!

ONE…
TWO…
THREE!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

(The crowd erupts in disgust as the referee pounds the mat for the third count. The Visual Prophet quickly rolls out of the ring and looks for his championship!)

Rich Russillo: VIZ JUST STOLE ANOTHER WIN!!!!

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION… THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!!

James Peters: Well, Viz did say he could get it done without Veena in his corner, and he did. In this match, both men put their careers on the line, strike after strike, hold after hold, and move after move, all devastating exchanges, showcasing why they are the best of the best when it comes to the New Breed division.

Rich Russillo: Myles with a spectacular performance here tonight, putting the New Breed Sovereign to the limit. Both of these men lived up to the hype and that is what the New Breed division is all about.

James Peters: The Visual Prophet’s New Breed Championship reign lives to see another day, congratulations to Vizzy even if he did do it in a dirty way.

(An absolutely livid Myles is seen inside the ring, while The Visual Prophet walks up the ramp, championship held in the air. Tempest fades to commercial break.)

(Commercial break promoting next week’s Empire show. Cleopatra will face Minerva in the main event, and the Specialists Champion, Serena Bennett, will take on Remi Skyfire in a Submissions Count Anywhere match in a blockbuster championship match!)

(Tempest returns and once again the lovely Bella Braxton is inside the ring.)

(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta begins to blast across the public address system. The crowd becomes unglued with jeers as Charlie Marr steps onto the stage.)

James Peters: This match scares me. The rivalry between Marr and Ripley has become so personal and they basically have a license to do anything to one another tonight.

Rich Russillo: Neither man is going to hold anything back tonight because this has become about more than the National Elite Championship contendership.

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM TOWER HAMLETS, LONDON! WEIGHING IN AT 240 POUNDS… CHARLIE MARR!!!

(The crowd lets Charlie have it and he does not acknowledge him because he’s awesome like that. Charlie slips inside the ring, takes his corner and gets set. His music fades out and is soon replaced by “A Story To Tell” by Woe, Is Me.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT!!!!

(The crowd pops huge for Jack Ripley as he steps onto the stage.)

Bella Braxton: FROM LAS VEGAS, NEVADA!!! WEIGHING IN AT 202 POUNDS…. HE IS THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER… JACK RIPLEY!!!!

Rich Russillo: PEW PEW PEW!!!!

James Peters: The RIP Daddy looks focused and ready for this match tonight! He’s been highly emotional these past few weeks and rightfully so. Charlie Marr attacked his family, and has had some disgusting things to say about Jordie Ripley since then.

(Jack climbs into the ring and his eyes never leave Charlie’s. These two are ready to kill each other, and the referee doesn’t wait. He calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: This match now underway as the two slowly move out of their corners. They slowly begin to circle the ring, BUT THE TWO NOW COLLIDE, GOING RIGHT AFTER EACH OTHER, TRADING FISTS ONE AFTER THE OTHER!!! RIPLEY WITH A STRIKE TO MARR!! NOW MARR SENDS ONE BACK!!! RIPLEY!!! MARR!!!! RIPLEY!!! MARR!!! RIPLEY WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!!! Marr and Ripley are holding nothing back early on, but MARR WITH THE CHARING CROS- RIPLEY DUCKS IT, AND THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, DROPPING MARR!!! Ripley now waiting for Marr to get back to his feet, and Marr does just that! Ripley now, YOU’LL FLOAT TOO..- No, Marr rolls out of the ring just before Ripley connected with the Superkick!

Rich Russillo: But Ripley runs straight after Marr! SUICIDE DIVE BY JACK!!! Jack taking out Marr, and now he’s dragging him by ringside, before SENDING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE!!! Charlie Marr tries to crawl away, BUT RIPLEY ONCE AGAIN SENDS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE!!! Jack Ripley with the cover now as this is a falls count anywhere match!

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
TTTTWWO-

Rich Russillo: MARR KICKS OUT!! Ripley now grabbing Marr once more as he tries to throw him into the ring post, but he’s able to stop himself with his foot on the post! Marr now with an elbow to the jaw, before SLAMMING RIPLEY’S HEAD ONTO THE APRON!!! Ripley stumbling back before GETTING BLASTED WITH A LARIAT!!! Marr now reaching under the ring, and, what is that? OH, IT’S A STEEL CHAIR!!!

James Peters: Charlie Marr with the Steel Chair in hand, and this could get bad for Jack Ripley, who’s getting to his feet! Charlie charges in, BUT RIPLEY WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, BEFORE PUSHING THE CHAIR INTO IT!!! Ripley now throws Marr back into the ring as he goes onto the apron! SLINGSHOT DDT- NO, MARR CATCHES RIPLEY, AND HE TURNS IT INTO A SPINEBUSTER!!! THE HEADMASTERS RITUAL JUST CONNECTED BUT MARR ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER!!! Marr instead tossing Jack out of the ring, and you’ve got to wonder where he’s going with this. Marr bringing Jack Ripley to the ramp, and now he attempts to lift him up! But no, Jack uses his weight to stay down, BEFORE DROPPING A DDT ONTO THE RAMP!!! Ripley barely sitting up now, as he goes for the second cover in this match!

OOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!
TTTTWWWWOOOOOOO-

James Peters: ANOTHER KICK OUT!!! Ripley getting to his feet now but you can tell he’s still feeling the effects of that Spinebuster. Ripley now grabbing Marr, and he’s dragging him up the ramp! Ripley now attempts to throw Marr into the minitron but he now stops himself! Marr turns around now and he kicks Ripley in the midsection! Marr now with a forearm to Ripley, before going behind him, AND THERE’S A SLEEPER HOLD!!! IT’S LOCKED IN, AND HE WRAPS THE LEGS AROUND HIM NOW!!! RIPLEY HAD NOWHERE TO GO, THIS IS NO DQ, AND HE’S NOT EVEN IN THE RING!!!

Rich Russillo: But Ripley, quickly able to get out of the legs, AND HE ROLLS INTO A PIN!!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEE!!!!!!
TTTTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
TTTTTTHHHRRREEE-

Rich Russillo: MARR GETS OUT, AND THE TWO GET BACK TO THEIR FEET!!! Ripley charges at Marr, BUT HE’S MET WITH A BIG BOOT, AND RIPLEY HAS JUST BEEN FLOORED BY MARR!!!! Marr now dragging Ripley to his feet, AND HE THROWS HIM INTO THE MINITRON!!! FACE FIRST!!! Ripley is out as Marr just looks at what just may be his corpse before grabbing him by the neck. Marr now dragging Ripley back down the ramp, and it looks like he’s bringing this back into the ring! Marr rolling Ripley right into the center of it, as Charlie makes his way to the top rope. Ripley slowly finds his footing, but that doesn’t matter now BECAUSE MARR CONNECTS WITH THE DEATH OR GLORY!!!! THE DIVING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT HITTING JACK STRAIGHT IN THE JAW!!! Marr now going back out of the ring, and he has once again armed himself with that steel chair!

James Peters: Marr gets back into the ring, AND SLAMS THE CHAIR ACROSS RIPLEY’S SPINE!!! HE DOES IT ONCE MORE, AND A THIRD TIME BEFORE DROPPING IT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! Marr dragging Ripley up now, and he’s got him by the arms. Marr moving right over the chair.. Oh no, he’s going to- NO!! RIPLEY WITH A BACK BODY DROP, AND HE AVOIDS WHAT MAY HAVE BEEN THE QUEEN IS DEAD CONNECTING ON THE CHAIR!!! Marr now holding his stomach as he slowly gets to one knee- DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!!! RIPLEY DRIVES A RUNNING KNEE RIGHT INTO MARR’S SKULL!!! Marr is out, as Ripley tries to catch his breath, before making his way to the top rope! Ripley, BELIEVE IT OR NOT- NO!!!! MARR AVOIDS THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY ROLLING OUT OF THE RING!!!

Rich Russillo: Marr on the floor outside the ring, still holding his head, but I think Ripley is done for! Marr slowly gets back into the ring, and he makes his way into the corner, waiting for Ripley to get to his feet! Ripley slowly does just that, but Marr charges in! THE CHARING CROSS!!!!! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS, AND MARR DROPS ONTO THE COVER!!!!

OOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!!
TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
TTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!!

Rich Russillo: RIPLEY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!!! IT’S NOT OVER YET, THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER!!!! Marr in complete disbelief, Ripley just managed to kick out of the Charing Cross!

James Peters: It’s incredible that Ripley managed to kick out of that, but now Marr is just punching probably everything Ripley had left out of him! Marr now rolling out of the ring, before pulling Jack out with him, and what’s this? Charlie has him up on his shoulder, and he’s charging towards the barricades, BUT RIPLEY STOPS HIMSELF, AND HE HITS A TORNADO DDT OFF THE BARRICADE, DROPPING BOTH MEN!!!

Rich Russillo: Ripley now crawling over to the ramp, reaching out to the barricade in an attempt to get to his feet, away from Marr, who’s grabbing the ringpost in an attempt to get up as well! Both men slowly manage to do so, and Marr slowly makes his way up to Ripley who is waiting for him at the ramp! AND NOW THEY START THE BRAWL ONCE AGAIN!!! The two trading fists, slowly making their way up the ramp, and now they’re all the way up the stage!

James Peters: These two won’t stop trading blows, they hate each other’s guts! But now, it looks like they’re making their way backstage!

Rich Russillo: This fight between Jack and Charlie has spilled backstage now and Jack has taken control of Charlie! He drives him headfirst into the wall and Charlie drops to his knees! Jack is clubbing Charlie in the head and neck now, showing absolutely no mercy! Remember, falls count anywhere in this match!

James Peters: Jack grabs Charlie and starts dragging him down the hallway! People are getting the hell out of their way too! He takes Charlie and slings him into an equipment box! Charlie hits head first and Jack looks around. He grabs a cable cord, wraps it around Charlie’s neck, and begins choking him! Charlie is grabbing at the cord, but Jack starts punching him in the face, putting a stop to that! Jack headbutts Charlie, tightens the cord around Charlie’s neck and screams at the referee to check on Charlie!

Rich Russillo: The referee lifts Charlie’s hand… it drops!!!!

James Peters: He does it a second time…

Rich Russillo: It drops again!!!!!

James Peters: The referee checks Charlie one more time….

Rich Russillo: Charlie clenches his hand into a fist! He’s still in this! Jack lets go of the cord and begins wailing away on Charlie! He jerks him back up to a vertical base and whips him into the wall! Charlie slams into that wall and Jack lunges forward, catching Charlie with a big boot to the face! He drives his knee into Charlie’s gut over and over, and throws him forward, down the hallway!

James Peters: Jack is grabbing that cord and he folds it in half… HE IS WHIPPING CHARLIE LIKE A GOVERNMENT MULE!!!! JACK IS JUST WHIPPING THE SHIT OUT OF THE CHARLIE RIGHT NOW!!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE IS TRYING TO CRAWL AWAY BUT JACK STARTS PUTTING THE BOOTS TO HIM! HE’S STOMPING AWAY AND YOU CAN FEEL EVERY BIT OF FRUSTRATION FROM THE STRAIGHT SHOOTA RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: JACK REACHES DOWN AND PULLS CHARLIE UP BY THE BEARD! HE THROWS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE WALL! THE MOMENTUM SENDS CHARLIE STUMBLING BACK! JACK IS THERE! HE GRABS HIM AROUND THE WAIST! GERMAN SUPLEX ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR! JACK GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE KICKS OUT!!!!

James Peters: JACK GETS UP AND STARTS LOOKING AROUND FOR SOMETHING!

Rich Russillo: A LADDER!!! JACK RIPLEY SEES A LADDER LEANING AGAINST THE WALL OVER IN THE CORNER!

James Peters: Jack walks over and grabs the ladder, dragging it back over to where Charlie is still down! Jack stomps on Charlie a few times before hoisting that ladder up over his head!!!!

Rich Russillo: JACK DROPS THE LADDER! IT LANDS ON TOP OF CHARLIE!! JACK STARTS STOMPING ON THE LADDER THAT IS NOW ON TOP OF CHARLIE MARR!!! NOW JACK IS GRABBING THAT LADDER AND WHAT’S HE DOING??

James Peters: Jack has grabbed the ladder and now he’s setting it up a little ways away from Charlie Marr! I feel like Jack Ripley is about to take a huge risk here and who even fucking knows if that is going to pay off…

Rich Russillo: Jack starts scaling the ladder and he gets himself set up at the very top!

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: :lupe:

James Peters: BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE MOVES!!! CHARLIE MOVES!!!!

Rich Russillo: How in the hell did Jack Ripley get his shoulder up?!

James Peters: Charlie is shocked right now! Surely he thought he had the match won! I think we all kinda thought that! Charlie is slowly getting back to his feet now and he looks around at their surroundings.

Rich Russillo: Charlie sees a fire extinguisher and he goes to grab it!!!!

James Peters: Charlie snatches that thing off the wall and he waits for Jack to sit back up! Jack finally gets his bearings and he’s very gingerly getting back to his feet. Charlie sprays Jack in the face with the fire extinguisher! HE SPRAYED HIM IN THE EYES!!!! JACK CAN’T SEE! CHARLIE TAKES THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND HE SLAMS IT INTO JACK’S FACE! JACK IS BACK DOWN AND CHARLIE GRABS JACK!!! HE DRAGS HIM OVER TO THE STAIRCASE AND THROWS HIM UP THE STAIRS! HE STILL HAS THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND HE SLAMS IT INTO JACK RIPLEY’S KIDNEY AREA!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DOES THAT AGAIN AND AGAIN! HE FINALLY DROPS THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND GRABS JACK BY THE HAIR! HE PULLS HIM UP THE STEPS AND THE TWO ARE HEADING DOWN THE CORRIDOR NOW! THEY ARE IN THE MAIN PART OF THE ARENA NOW AND FANS WHO HAVE BEEN IN LINE GETTING DRINKS AND FOOD ARE NOW STARTING TO SCATTER!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE TAKES JACK AND THROWS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE BATHROOM!

(The lone guy in this particular bathroom lets out a startled cry, quickly zips up, and gets the fuck out of there.)

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE IS BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF JACK NOW WITH THOSE CLUBBING BLOWS TO THE BACK! HE GRABS JACK BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE TRASH CAN! JACK HITS THE GROUND AND CHARLIE STARTS STOMPING ON HIM! JACK IS DEFENSELESS RIGHT NOW AND CHARLIE JUST SEEMS REALLY ANNOYED! HE GRABS JACK AND LOOKS TO RAM HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE URINAL…

James Peters: BUT JACK GETS HIS FOOT UP!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE FIRES OFF A FOREARM THAT CATCHES JACK IN THE JAW, AND JACK SOMEHOW FINDS THE STRENGTH TO ANSWER BACK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN!!!! THE TWO MEN ARE EXCHANGING FOREARM SHOTS NOW AND IT’S JACK RIPLEY WHO FINALLY CLOCKS CHARLIE MARR RIGHT IN THE JAW!!! THAT SENDS CHARLIE STUMBLING BACK AND JACK DOESN’T LET UP!!!

James Peters: Jack looks frustrated but he’s finally getting back to his feet now! Jack grabs Charlie by the beard and they make their way out of the carnage that is the broken bathroom stall!! Jack grabs Charlie… I THINK HE’S GOING TO RAM HIM INTO THE MIRROR!!!! JACK HAS CHARLIE BY THE BACK OF THE NECK AND HE LOOKS TO SLAM THE FORMER CO-NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION INTO THE MIRROR!!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE GETS HIS FOOT UP! HE BLOCKS!! HE HITS JACK WITH AN ELBOW! JACK FIRES BACK WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT! CHARLIE WITH A FOREARM! JACK WITH ANOTHER KNEE TO THE GUT! JACK WITH ANOTHER KNEE! AND ANOTHER KNEE! HE GRABS CHARLIE AND HE SLAMS CHARLIE FACE FIRST INTO THE MIRROR!!!!

James Peters: THAT MIRROR JUST SHATTERED! HOLY SHIT! THAT’S SEVEN YEARS OF BAD LUCK FOR CHARLIE MARR BECAUSE HIS FACE AND HEAD JUST BROKE IT!!!!

Rich Russillo: YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!! JACK WITH THE SUPERKICK!!!!

James Peters: NO!!!! CHARLIE DROPPED DOWN TO HIS KNEES!!!!

Rich Russillo: JACK WHIRLS AROUND! HE HITS A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF CHARLIE’S HEAD!!! CHARLIE FALLS FORWARD AND JACK DROPS DOWN, TURNS HIM OVER, AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE. KICKED. OUT.

Rich Russillo: :damn:

James Peters: Jack is shook! Surely we all that was going to be it!!! Charlie Marr is a bloody mess right now and Jack Ripley slams his hand into the floor! Jack makes his way up to his feet and he snatches Charlie up! He wraps him in a headlock and drags him out of the bathroom! Charlie lands a few punches to Jack’s side, but Jack drives his fist repeatedly into those open wounds on Charlie’s head!!!

Rich Russillo: They’re making their way through a group of fans who are in line at the concession stand! Those fans quickly scattered as Jack grabs Charlie and slams his face off the counter!

James Peters: Jack turns Charlie around and nails him with a chop to the chest! Look at the concession stand workers, Rich! They’re frozen! They don’t know what to do!

(Jack looks around and sees the fan standing closest to them holding a beer.)

Rich Russillo: Jack just snatched a beer from a fan and he’s pouring that alcohol into Charlie’s open wounds. Yikes!

James Peters: Jack using his fists now and this match has just broken down into an all out war. Jack grabs Charlie and lifts him up! He drops him face first across the counter, and now he’s thrown Charlie over it! Jack climbs over the counter as well and those concession stand workers seem to be in shock right now!!!

Rich Russillo: Well this is a fucking health code violation I’m sure….

James Peters: Bruh, this is Kentucky. The whole fucking state is a health code violation.

Rich Russillo: JACK’S GRABBED A MICROWAVE AND HE’S RAISING IT ABOVE HIS HEAD!!! IF HE HITS CHARLIE MARR WITH IT THIS MATCH IS OVER!!!!

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: LOW BLOW!!! CHARLIE WITH THE LOW BLOW! JACK DROPS THE MICROWAVE AND CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND! CHARLIE LOOKS EXHAUSTED BUT HE KNOWS THIS IS AN OPENING FOR HIM! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY THE FORMER DOUBLE CHAMPION IS ABLE TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! CHARLIE GRABS JACK AND HE WHIPS HIM INTO THE STEEL REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER THING! HE SNATCHES THE DOOR OPEN AND PLACES JACK’S HEAD INSIDE! CHARLIE SLAMS THE DOOR SHUT!!! CHARLIE GRABS JACK BEFORE JACK FALLS, AND HITS HIM WITH AN UPPERCUT!

James Peters: JACK FALLS BACK AGAINST A PREP TABLE AND CHARLIE GRABS HIM, THROWING HIM AGAINST THE FRYERS!!! CHARLIE GRABS JACK BY THE HAIR AND NO… NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! DON’T FUCKING DO THIS CHARLIE!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE IS TRYING TO SHOVE JACK’S FACE INTO THE HOT GREASE!!!

James Peters: JACK IS FIGHTING FOR HIS FUCKING LIFE RIGHT NOW! HE CATCHES CHARLIE WITH AN ELBOW TO THE GUT! ANOTHER ELBOW! CHARLIE FINALLY HAS TO LET GO AND JACK DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO CHARLIE’S FACE!!! CHARLIE STUMBLES BACK! JACK GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND SLAMS HIS FACE OFF THE STOVE TOP! JACK GRABS A FRY BASKET BY THE HANDLE AND HE THROWS IT AT CHARLIE!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DUCKS AS THAT GREASY HOT FRY BASKET GOES FLYING!

(Suddenly a woman starts screaming!)

James Peters: Oh shit.

(The fry basket has hit one of the concession stand workers in the face, burning her badly. She crumbles to the ground in a heap.)

Rich Russillo: Well that’s probably going to get us sued.

James Peters: YUPP!

(Meanwhile, Jack and Charlie continue to fight on!)

Rich Russillo: JACK HAS POSITIONED CHARLIE OVER THOSE FRYERS AGAIN!!! BUT CHARLIE HEADBUTTS JACK!!! HE HEADBUTTS HIM AGAIN!!! HE REVERSES THEIR POSITIONS AND NOW IT’S JACK WHO IS IN THE PRECARIOUS POSITION!!! JACK THROWS A RIGHT HAND!! CHARLIE BLOCKS!!! HE GRABS JACK’S HAND AND HE PLUNGES IT INTO THAT GREASE!!! DEAR GAWD!!!

James Peters: JACK RIPS HIS BURNING HAND FROM THAT GREASE AND HE LOOKS TO BE IN SHOCK!!! CHARLIE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION AND HITS JACK WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE!!! CHARLIE IS NOW STOMPING AWAY AT THAT INJURED RIGHT HAND!!! CHARLIE GRABS JACK AND HE THROWS HIM BACK OVER THE COUNTER!!! NO ONE WATCHING THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW REALLY KNOWS HOW TO REACT!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DRAGS JACK TO THE EXIT AND THROWS HIM THROUGH THE DOORS!!! THIS FIGHT HAS NOW GONE OUTSIDE!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE RIGHT NOW IS ALL OVER JACK!!! CHARLIE WITH REPEATED STOMPS TO HIS BACK, AND NOW HE DRAGS HIM TO HIS FEET! MARR MAKING HIS WAY DOWN TO THE PARKING LOT, AND HE THROWS JACK ONTO THE HOOD OF A CAR! CHARLIE MAKES HIS WAY ONTO THE CAR, BEFORE PUTTING JACK ON HIS SHOULDERS!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT JACK IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT, REPEATED ELBOWS TO THE FACE, BEFORE MANAGING TO SLIP BEHIND! INVERTED DDT ON THE HOOD OF THE CAR!!! BOTH MEN DROP OFF THE CAR, BUT THIS MAY BE IT FOR CHARLIE!!!

James Peters: Ripley is slowly manage to sit up, Marr’s out of it! His back just went crashing into that car hood, AND JACK ISN’T DONE YET!!! JACK DRAGS CHARLIE UP, AND HE’S GOING BACK TOWARDS THE CAR! OH MY GOD!!! JACK JUST THREW MARR INTO THE FRONT WINDSHIELD OF THE CAR!!!

Rich Russillo: WHOSE CAR IS THIS!?!? MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW IS MARR SUPPOSED TO RECOVER FROM THIS!?!?

James Peters: I DON’T THINK THAT’S POSSIBLE AT THIS POINT! JACK DRAGGING MARR OUT OF THE CAR, BACK ONTO ITS HOOD, AND NOW HE GOES FOR WHAT LOOKS LIKE THE LAST COVER FOR THIS MATCH!!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!
TTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!
TTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEE!!!-

Rich Russillo: MARR’S STILL IN IT!!! WHAT IS JACK SUPPOSED TO DO AT THIS POINT!?!?

James Peters: Oh no, I think I know! Jack dragging Marr to the side of the building, and now he RAMS HIM RIGHT INTO IT!! MARR HAS TO BE DONE FOR! THERE’S NO WAY HE CAN CONTINUE AFTER THAT, AND NOW JACK HITS A SUPLEX OUTSIDE THE BUILDING!!!

Rich Russillo: MARR IS DONE FOR! THERE’S NO WAY HE CAN COME BACK FROM THIS!! Ripley is now dragging Marr across the parking lot, towards another car! Ripley, opening the hood of the car, BUT MARR GOUGES RIPLEY’S EYES, AND SLAMS THE HOOD ON TOP OF HIS INJURED HAND!!!! RIPLEY’S HURT, AND NOW MARR- CHARING CROSS!!!!! BUT MARR CAN’T CAPITALIZE!!!

James Peters: Charlie Marr isn’t even able to stand right now, much less go for the cover, but he’s still trying! Marr, slowly crawling to Ripley and turning him over, AND THERE’S THE COVER!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEE!!!!!
TTTTTWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
TTTTTTHHHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: RIPLEY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!! THIS MATCH IS STILL ON!!!

Rich Russillo: But can you really be surprised? Marr wasted valuable time there.

James Peters: You may be right, but it doesn’t look like that matters now as Marr slowly gets to his feet. Marr now approaching this car’s front windshield and, what’s he doing? MARR JUST RIPPED OFF THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS!!! WHY!?!?

Rich Russillo: LOOKS LIKE WE’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT! MARR NOW, HITTING RIPLEY RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH ONE OF THEM!!! JUST AS JACK WAS GETTING TO A KNEE, MARR USED THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS TO TAKE HIM RIGHT BACK DOWN!!! LOOK AT THE MARK THAT LEFT ON JACK’S FACE!!! AND NOW CHARLIE IS CHOKING JACK OUT WITH THE WINDSHIELD WIPER!!! PRESSING IT CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE GROUND AS THE REFEREE IS CHECKING ON JACK!! THIS COULD BE IT!!! THIS TIME IT’S JACK WHO’S FADING!!!! THE REFEREE LIFTS UP THE ARM, AND THERE’S NO RESPONSE!!!

James Peters: HE LIFTS THE ARM UP AGAIN, STILL NO RESPONSE!!!

Rich Russillo: HE LIFTS IT UP, ONE LA- JACK!!!! JACK’S STILL FIGHTING!!! JACK GRABS ONTO THE WINDSHIELD WIPER, AND KICKS CHARLIE OFF OF HIM!!! NOW IT’S RIPLEY WITH THE WINDSHIELD WIPER, AND HE WHACKS MARR WITH IT RIGHT IN THE MIDSECTION!! HE DOES IT AGAIN!! AND AGAIN!!!! RIPLEY DROPS THE WIPER, AND NOW HE THROWS MARR BACK INTO THE BUILDING, THROUGH THE DOOR!!!

James Peters: NOW JACK, THROWING MARR OVER THE COUNTER THIS TIME, AS IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S BEGINNING THE WALK BACK OUT INTO THE ARENA!!! Jack is bringing Marr all the way back by force, and so far Marr hasn’t been able to fight back, until now! Marr with multiple elbows to the midsection, AND HE ATTEMPTS ANOTHER LOW BLOW, BUT JACK CAUGHT HIS FOOT!!! RIPLEY NOW WITH A LOW BLOW OF HIS OWN, AND THIS IS NOTHING SHORT OF PAYBACK AS RIPLEY CARRIES MARR BACK!!!

Rich Russillo: Jack is getting closer to the stage, BUT MARR NOW IS WRENCHING ON JACK’S FACE, PULLING IT BACK BY HIS NOSE!!! JACK DROPS MARR, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX BY CHARLIE!! NOW CHARLIE IS DRAGGING JACK BY THE ARMS, AND THEY’VE FINALLY RETURNED TO THE ENTRANCE STAGE, BUT I DON’T THINK EITHER MAN IS WILLING TO WALK DOWN THAT RAMP, AS MARR DROPS DOWN FOR ANOTHER PINFALL!!!

OOOONNNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!
TTTTTWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!-

James Peters: RIPLEY GETS THE SHOULDER UP, AND MARR, doesn’t look that shocked at this point, as much as he does exhausted! Marr now picking Ripley up, and he’s carrying him down the ramp on his shoulder. Marr eyes the apron though, and this could get bad!

Rich Russillo: Marr now running towards the apron, but Ripley manages to drive multiple elbows into his back! And Marr now, CRASHES RIGHT INTO THE APRON AS RIPLEY MANAGED TO GET OUT OF HIS GRASP!!! Ripley grabs Marr now, AND SENDS HIM INTO THE RINGPOST!!! Now it’s Ripley looking under the ring for… A KENDO STICK!!!

James Peters: RIPLEY HAS THE KENDO STICK IN HAND! MARR TRIES TO GET TO HIS FEET, BUT RIPLEY WHACKS HIM ACROSS THE MIDSECTION AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME IT’S WITH THAT KENDO STICK!!! AND THERE’S ANOTHER ONE!!! MARR IS JUST TRYING TO ESCAPE THIS ASSAULT BY RIPLEY BUT IT’S NO USE AS RIPLEY KEEPS FIRING THESE KENDO STICK SHOTS ALL OVER HIM!!! JACK NOW, SWINGING THE KENDO STICK RIGHT TOWARDS THE FACE-

Rich Russillo: MARR CATCHES IT!!! THERE’S A KICK TO JACK’S MIDSECTION AS MARR DROPS THE NEARLY BROKEN KENDO STICK!!! MARR NOW THROWING JACK BACK INTO THE RING AS HE FOLLOWS BEHIND, BUT JACK IS QUICK TO QUICKLY START FIRING SHOTS, AS THE TWO BEGIN TO TRADE BLOWS ONE MORE TIME!!! I DON’T THINK THERE ARE ENOUGH WORDS TO DESCRIBE WHAT YOU’RE SEEING! BACK AND FORTH, ONE AFTER THE OTHER, CHARLIE MARR AND JACK RIPLEY!!!

James Peters: THESE MEN HAVE GIVEN IT EVERYTHING THEY’VE HAD TONIGHT! HOW EITHER OF THEM ARE STILL STANDING IS BEYOND ME! JACK AND CHARLIE ARE STILL THROWING PUNCHES! CHARLIE CONNECTS WITH JACK! JACK CONNECTS WITH CHARLIE! THEY’RE SLUGGING IT RIGHT NOW AND ALL BECAUSE THEY BOTH WANT TO GO TO GRAND RAMPAGE AND BECOME THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!!!!

Rich Russillo: JACK CONNECTS WITH AN UPPERCUT TO CHARLIE! CHARLIE FALLS BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! JACK LOOKS FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT CHARLIE GETS HIS FEET UP!!! JACK STUMBLES BACK AND CHARLIE RUSHES FORWARD! CHARING CROSS!

James Peters: NO!!!! JACK DUCKS!!!! JACK WHIRLS AROUND!!! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE GRABS JACK’S FOOT!!!! CHARLIE SPINS JACK AROUND!!! CHARING CROSS! IT CONNECTS! CONNECTS!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT HE’S NOT GOING FOR THE COVER!!! WHY ISN’T CHARLIE GOING FOR THE COVER?!

James Peters: CHARLIE MARR SLIPS OUT OF THE RING AND HE’S GRABBING A CHAIR! CHARLIE HAS A CHAIR!!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE SLIPS BACK INSIDE THE RING AND HE PLACES THAT CHAIR OVER THE BATTERED FACE OF JACK RIPLEY!

(All of a sudden, the crowd lets out a huge cheer! Jordie Ripley has come rushing from the back and she slides inside the ring, throwing her hands up.)

James Peters: JORDIE RIPLEY NEEDS TO GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE! CHARLIE MARR ISN’T GOING TO FUCK AROUND WITH HER RIGHT NOW!

Charlie Marr (Off Mic): GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE RING!

Jordie Ripley (Off Mic): FUCK YOU!

Rich Russillo: JORDIE SNATCHES THE CHAIR UP AND SCRAMBLES TO HER FEET!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE LUNGES FOR HER! HE GRABS THE CHAIR! JORDIE TRIES WITH ALL HER MIGHT TO WRENCH IT FREE FROM CHARLIE’S HANDS BUT HE’S TOO STRONG!

Rich Russillo: BUT JACK RIPLEY IS SITTING UP AND HE SEES HIS SISTER FIGHTING WITH CHARLIE! HE SEES THE CHAIR AND THE FORMER PURE CHAMPION IS ON HIS FEET!

Jack Ripley (Off Mic): DON’T FUCKING TOUCH HER!!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE LETS GO OF THE CHAIR AND HOLDS HIS HANDS IN THE AIR!!!

CRACK!!!!!!!

James Peters: :damn:

Rich Russillo: :damn:

Crowd: 😐 😐 😐

James Peters: JORDIE RIPLEY JUST SMACKED HER BROTHER IN THE FACE WITH THE CHAIR!!!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE MARR IS LAUGHING! THAT SON OF A BITCH IS LAUGHING!!! AND LOOK AT JORDIE! THAT BITCH IS SMILING! JACK RIPLEY IS SURELY UNCONSCIOUS AFTER THAT CHAIR SHOT TO THE FACE AFTER ALL THE ABUSE HE’S TAKEN IN THIS MATCH!!!!

(Jordie tosses the chair down and turns her attention to Charlie. The two lock eyes and all of a sudden Jordie jumps in his arms! The crowd loses their fucking minds as Jordie presses her lips against Charlie’s!)

James Peters: YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!

Rich Russillo: I GUESS HE REALLY DID FUCK HER AND MAKE IT UP TO HER!!!!

(Charlie slaps Jordie on the ass and she drops to her feet, smiling proudly at the damage done. Charlie arrogantly places his foot on Jack’s chest and the referee drops do-)

James Peters: DARYL KINKADE! DARYL KINKADE!!!!

Rich Russillo: DARYL IS IN THE RING AND HE SLAMS INTO CHARLIE AND JORDIE! BOTH OF THEM GO DOWN AND DARYL IS ON TOP OF CHARLIE, BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF HIM! YES! YES! THIS HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING AND DARYL IS FINALLY GETTING HIS REVENGE!!! DARYL GRABS CHARLIE UP AND THROWS HIM INTO THE ROPES!!! CLOTHESLINE!!! DARYL CROUCHES DOWN!!! HE IS SCREAMING AT CHARLIE TO SIT UP! SLOWLY HIS FORMER TAG TEAM PARTNER RISES UP… GETTING TO HIS KNEES!!!! DARYL RUSHES FORWARD!!! KILLED. YOU. DEAD!!!! THAT HIDDEN BLADE ELBOW JUST TOOK OUT CHARLIE MARR!!!

James Peters: DARYL KICKS CHARLIE OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND GRABS JACK!!! HE THROWS JACK ON TOP OF CHARLIE JUST LIKE CHARLIE THREW MYLES ON TOP OF DARYL ON THE VOLTAGE AFTER KING OF ELITE!!! THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN AND HE GOES FOR THE COUNT!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!
TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!
TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP…. JACK RIPLEY!!!!

(Jack’s theme music hits, but it’s Daryl Kinkade that everyone is focused on! Jordie Ripley has pulled Charlie Marr out from underneath Jack and his checking on him, while glaring up the ramp at Daryl.)

Rich Russillo: What the fuck did we just watch?

James Peters: We just watched a man put his career on the line to defend his sister’s honor, only for her turn on him and align with his enemy.

Rich Russillo: Daryl Kinkade saved the day, though.

James Peters: But at what cost? Do you honestly think Jack Ripley is going to be happy about any of this? The man fought his fucking heart out tonight only to have it ripped out by his own blood. When he comes too and finds out what happened, I doubt he’s going to be happy about this win at all.

Rich Russillo: Never in a million years did I ever expect Jordie Ripley to do something like this. What a cunt.

James Peters: Sheesh.

(The cameras get one last shot of the carnage inside the ring, and of Daryl disappearing to the back before cutting to commercial break.)

(Commercial break for AOL instant messenger featuring Rex McAllister.)

(Tempest returns and focuses on Bella inside the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following is a No Disqualification match and is for the EAW National Elite Championship…

(Cue the music. Hair of the Dog by Nazareth hits the PA system, and the crowd erupts.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, all the way from Indonesia… Weighing in at two hundred and thirty-five pounds… Mr. Every Night… FARRELL V!

(Farrell V explodes onto the scene, charging out from the tunnel beneath the entrance. He stops center stage; taking in the crowd and the scenery. Farrell V looks determined – This is his night, and that championship is his for the taking.)

James Peters: Farrell V was given a unique opportunity back on Voltage, defeating Korey Gaines and…

(SMACK! Farrell V gets fucking creamed by a steel chair upside the head. The sound of chair meeting the skull of Farrell V echoes threw the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The crowd goes dead silent – Not expecting that at all as Mr. Every Night goes stiff and falls face first into the arena floor, and then you see his attacker, standing behind the number one contender with a look of anger mixed with satisfaction is Jackson Blayde holding a now bent steel chair. Your President has arrived!)

James Peters: What the hell is this, this is…

Rich Russillo: Awesome!

(Jackson Blayde tosses the steel chair – No longer having any use for it, as he waves his hand in front of his throat, and just like that Hair of the Dog by Nazareth ends and Real American’ by Rick Derringer fires up.)

James Peters: That isn’t awesome; that’s a dirty cheap shot!

Rich Russillo: A cheap shot? This is a no disqualification match James; which means anything goes!

James Peters: The match hasn’t even started yet!

Rich Russillo: Well call it a strategic move by our National Champion then… tactics like this prove why Jackson Blayde is the National Elite Champion, and an illegal immigrant is not…

James Peters: Don’t even start with that.

(Jackson Blayde – The cocky prick – steps on Farrell V, like literally steps on top of him and walks right over Mr. Every Night. Jazmin – Jackson Blayde’s sexy ass assistant and girlfriend follows suit, walking right over top of the number one contender, making sure to dig the heels of her pointy ass shoes into the back of Farrell V.)

Bella Braxton: And making his way to the ring from Memphis, Tennessee… Weighing in at two hundred and twenty-nine pounds… He is, your National Elite Champion… The Prodigy… JACKSON BLAYDE!

(The crowd; which is no longer silent shows their hatred towards the National Elite Champion, even overtaking the music, with there chorus of booing.)

Rich Russillo: This is an outrage… these people… They need to show there National Elite Champion and the President of the United States of Blaydemerica the respect he deserves!

James Peters: He doesn’t deserve an ounce of the respect… You need to earn respect, and Blayde hasn’t done – OH! Look at this…

(Farrell V recovers like a little whipper snapper, and he looks fucking livid as he spears Jackson Blayde from behind, tackling the Prodigy to the ground – No cheap chair shot is going to rain on his parade.)

Rich Russillo: How dare he… Interrupting such a… Moment of greatness!

James Peters: What’s that saying? You reap what you sow? Eye for an eye? Well this is Jackson getting a taste of his own medicine as Farrell V is firing with all cylinders, delivering a boatload of left and rights to the back of Jackson Blayde’s head.

Rich Russillo: The referee needs to get in there and put a stop to this, get this under control! This is an outrage!

James Peters: What do you mean? Isn’t this a no disqualification match?

Rich Russillo: The match hasn’t even begun yet!

(The referee; trying to get control, exits the ring right as Jazmin tugs viciously on the ponytail of Farrell V – Just yanking the shit out of it. The referee manages to intercept, putting an end to the relentless attack by the contender, but Farrell V is having none of it because this fucker almost got him deported and cost him a match against the Prince of Phenomenal.)

James Peters: Farrell V isn’t wasting this opportunity, oh no, he is going right back at Jackson Blayde!

Rich Russillo: Come on! Give the champion a moment to regain his barring’s! This just isn’t right… He should be showing the President of Blaydemerica some respect!

(Fuck it – The referee realizing, he isn’t going to get any control, throws his hands into the air in defeat and then signals for the bell… The match for the EAW National Elite Championship is underway and they never even made it to the ring.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: Farrell V grabs Jackson Blayde by the arm and the back of the neck and whips the champion into the steel steps!

(The steel steps break in two, as Jackson Blayde’s knees make the first contact sending him flipping over the stairs. Crashing hard on his back. Jazmin, who has seen enough steps in to be the distraction…)

Rich Russillo: Stay back Jazmin! This guy is a proven women beater…

James Peters: That’s lie…

Rich Russillo: Oh is? If my mind is correct Farrell V kick her in the face back on Voltage.

James Peters: That was an accident.

Rich Russillo: Didn’t look like an accident from where I was sitting, I saw the intent in his eyes… OH! Jazmin just slapped Farrell V across the face! YES! That’s what you get for laying your filthy hands on the first lady of blaydemerica!

(Farrell V just looks and points the finger at Jazmin – Like bitch, if I wasn’t a gentleman I’d knock you right out! )

James Peters: She needs to stay out of this…

Rich Russillo: Stay out of it… She’s looking out for her president – DAMN! Jackson Blayde just clobbered Farrell V with a forearm to the back of the head sending Farrell V stumbling into the guardrail!

James Peters: Farrell V pushes off the guardrail turning back towards Blayde…

Rich Russillo: Spike DDT! Blayde connects with a spike DDT driving the head of Farrell V into the arena floor!

(The Prodigy picks up a groggy Farrell V and rolls him underneath the bottom rope and follows right behind as both men are now inside the ring. Farrell V on his stomach and Jackson Blayde on his feet.)

Rich Russillo: Jackson Blayde is raining down a myriad of boot stomps to the back of Farrell V, connecting with the exposed back and legs of Mr. Every Night!

James Peters: What is he doing now?

Rich Russillo: Proving a point maybe… Why he’s the champion and Farrell V has no place in this match… Go home Farrell this is President Blayde’s arena!

(Jackson Blayde stops with the boot stomping and as Farrell V starts to push himself back up…)

James Peters: Come on Jackson, show some class… He’s open palm bitch slapping Farrell V upside the back of the head.

Rich Russillo: He’s showing class… Class in dominance!

(Rich Russillo chuckles – He’s really into the match. Jackson Blayde even though he looks to be enjoying the situation, seems to be growing tired of the slaps to the back of Farrell’s head and starts pushing Farrell V over with the toe of his boot.)

James Peters: So disrespectful.

Rich Russillo: Oh, Jackson Blayde has Farrell V by the ponytail and is using it to bring Farrell V to his feet…

James Peters: Come on he’s using the ponytail as if it’s a leash!

Rich Russillo: This is why men should never have ponytails.

(Jackson Blayde walks Farrell V over towards the ropes and hops over the top turnbuckle while keeping a hold of Farrell V’s ponytail.)

Rich Russillo: Well isn’t that a smart move by our champ, he is using Farrell V own ponytail as leverage as he is choking him with the top rope!

(And that he was; that he was. Jackson Blayde held on for dear life, both hands gripped on Farrell V ponytail as he hung in the air, feet not even touching the ground – looks like he is swinging in the air – while Farrell V throat pressed into the top rope. Farrell V is squirming, unsure what to do, either save his ponytail or his throat. He’s in quite the predicament.)

James Peters: He’s going to rip the ponytail right off of Farrell V if he doesn’t let go!

Rich Russillo: I think President Blayde is just trying to help him you know… like look dude, ponytails, and man buns just aren’t manly! They don’t belong in Blaydemerica! They don’t belong on grown ass men!

James Peters: Would you just stop with that!

(Jackson Blayde almost pulls Farrell V right over the top rope but stops just before that can happen and let’s go. Jackson Blayde lands on his feet outside the ring while Farrell V falls back into the ring holding his head. Jackson Blayde taunts outside the ring giving the crowd around ringside a real show; while giving them all an ear full of knowledge – on why you never put your hair in a ponytail for a no disqualification match.)

Rich Russillo: Turn around BLAYDE!

James Peters: Farrell V with the suicide dive over the top rope; turning his body into a weapon and throwing himself right into Jackson Blayde!

(Jackson Blayde stumbles from contact and falls backward into the guardrail – And the crowd lets Jackson Blayde know why you always keep your eye on your opponent.)

James Peters: Looks like Farrell V just got a shot of adrenaline, connecting with the suicide dive and then rolling onto his feet! He charges toward Blayde and lunges driving his knee right into the face of Jackson.

Rich Russillo: He almost took Blayde’s head off with that knee.

(And shit he nearly did, as from the speed and impact both men flipped over the guardrail and end up in the crowd – popcorn and drinks go flying!)

James Peters: Jackson looks a little light on the feet as he tries to stand holding his face.

Rich Russillo: And look at this… Just like he robbed all those banks back in Bali, now he’s stealing that chair from some child!

James Peter: He didn’t rob any banks and the kid pretty much gave him the chair!

Rich Russillo: That’s not what I saw… Why is Farrell V handing the chair to Jack – Don’t take it President Blayde!

(Too late as Farrell V spins with a roundhouse kick, driving the heel of his boot into the chair sending the base of the chair right into the face of The Prodigy. The steel chair and Jackson Blayde tumble back over to guardrail into the ringside area.)

James Peters: Mr. Every Night is following pursuit as he hops back over the guardrail and stalks Jackson Blayde who is crawling on all four trying to put some distance between himself and Farrell V.

(Jackson Blayde is using the ring apron for some assistance as he pulls himself back up onto his feet.)

James Peters: Farrell V breaks into a quick sprint, leaping up onto the steel steps then the apron and launches off… CROSSBODY!

(Farrell V – The highflying genius – connects and rolls off Jackson Blayde, then starts digging underneath the bottom of the ring.)

Rich Russillo: Wonder what he’s looking for?

James Peters: My guess is he’s searching for anything to make this night a lot worse for Jackson Blayde.

Rich Russillo: What is that… Farrell V has found a wrench! Is that even legal?

James Peters: In a no disqualification match it is.

(Jazmin intervenes, putting herself in the way of Farrell V and Jackson Blayde.)

James Peters: You know Jackson Blayde must have really gotten underneath the skin of Farrell V if he plans to beat him into the bloody pulp with a wrench.

Rich Russillo: President Blayde really needs to put some distance between himself and Farrell.

(And that’s what Jackson does, as he crawls away from the two towards the announcer’s table.)

James Peters: Did Jazmin just come to reason with Farrell V, because… He just dropped the wrench… Is it wrong for me to say I’m sort of disappointed in that?

Rich Russillo: Yes James! YES!

(Farrell V drops the wrench that could of caused some serious fucking damage and walks past Jazmin – Doesn’t even touch her – and heads towards The Prodigy, who at this time is back up on his feet leaning against the announcer’s table.)

James Peters: You cannot take that!

(James Peters is yelling at Jackson Blayde. Farrell V breaks into a sprint towards Jackson Blayde who rips the monitor off the announcer’s table and chucks it a Farrell V, who just misses the monitor with his hands and takes it right into the face. Blood squirts from a gash formed just above the eyebrow of Mr. Every Night.)

James Peters: That; that’s going to leave a scar… Farrell V shuffles backward on his feet as Jackson runs and leaps off the steel steps…

Rich Russillo: 901 KNEE!

(Farrell V collapses like a sack of potatoes.)

James Peters: Farrell V looks like he is out!

Rich Russillo: I’d be, taking a knee like that right to the face… I’d be in a coma.

(Jackson Blayde grabs Farrell V, picking him up and pushing him underneath the bottom rope.)

James Peters: Looks like Jackson Blayde is hoping the 901 Knee was enough and is going for the pin.

Rich Russillo: I think that should be it, folks! One, two, three and that is a wrap!

ONE!

TWO!

KICKOUT!

James Peters: Not even close… Farrell V still has a lot of fight inside of him.

(Farrell V kicks out, and Jackson Blayde looks frustrated – He’s arguing with the referee, giving the referee a lesson in counting – Their is no Mississippi!)

James Peters: He needs to stop worrying about how fast the referee should count and start paying attention to Farrell V.

Rich Russillo: It was a slow count.

James Peters: It was like every other count we’ve ever seen! Legit!

Rich Russillo: In Blaydemerica… that’s too slow.

James Peter: Oh, what you all of a sudden are expertise on Blaydemerica?

Rich Russillo: Done some following, yes.

(Jackson had about enough with the referee as he notices Farrell V is crawling towards the turnbuckle.)

James Peters: He’s lucky this is no disqualification because he’d be disqualified pushing the referee like that!

(The referee falls on his ass.)

Rich Russillo: Ah! That’s going to hurt… President Blayde with the stomp right to the fingers of Farrell V.

(Farrell V falls onto his back, holding his hand in pain. Farrell V knuckles are bleeding.)

Rich Russillo: What is the referee doing, he cannot get in the face of Jackson like this.

James Peters: He pushed the referee out of the way, you think he’s just going to sit there and just take it?

Rich Russillo: He has no business getting in the face of Jackson; he’s distracting him… it isn’t fair!

James Peters: And Jazmin distracting Farrell earlier isn’t?

Rich Russillo: That’s different!

(Jackson Blayde sticks his hand into the face of the referee and pushes him out of the way – Like you would with an annoying child.)

James Peters: Triple German Suplex! Triple German Suplex!

Rich Russillo: Using the referee as a distraction… How dirty!

James Peters: Farrell V is going for the cover!

ONE!

TWO!

KICKOUT!

(Jackson Blayde lifts his shoulder.)

Rich Russillo: Jackson Blayde got his shoulder up for the two counts! If Farrell V wants to end this match, he’s going to need to do more than just a triple German Suplex to put away the President.

James Peters: I think he knows that…

Rich Russillo: Jackson Blayde is back up on his feet now…

James Peters: OH! Rolling Thunder Kick! Jackson Blayde is out, in the middle of the ring!

Rich Russillo: What is Farrell doing now?

(After the signature move Farrell V makes his way over to the corner turnbuckle. Farrell V leaps up top – This is his moment!)

James Peters: If he connects this could be it, we could have a new National Elite Champion!

(Farrell V leaps from the top rope.)

James Peters: Five Star Frog Splash!

Rich Russillo: NO! He missed! Jackson Blayde moved out of the way!

(Farrell V body bounces off the canvas, as Jackson Blayde had moved. Rolling out of harm’s way.)

Rich Russillo: President Blayde back up…

(Farrell V stands up holding his stomach. Most likely knocked the wind right out of him.)

Rich Russillo: President Blayde grabs Farrell V.

James Peters: CROWN BREAKER!

Rich Russillo: This could be it, folks.

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

DING! DING! DING!

Rich Russillo: President Jackson has retained!

(‘Real American’ by Rick Derringer plays again.)

Bella Braxton: And here is your winner and STILL EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… JACKSON BLAYDE!

(The crowd breaks into another chorus of boos, while the referee checks on Farrell V. Jazmin enters the ring holding the championship and hands it off to Jackson Blayde; while Rich Russillo stands up and claps his hand for the champion.)

Rich Russillo: What an epic performance by the President and still the National Elite Champion!

James Peters: There was nothing epic about that… He got lucky!

(Rich and James continue there bickering as Jackson Blayde exit the ring with his championship draped over his shoulder.)

James Peters: Why is he coming over here?

(Jackson reaches over the announcers table and rips the headset right off the head of James Peters and tosses it into the crowd. Jackson and Jazmin walk off, as James Peters looks for his headset.)

(While poor James searches for his headset, Tempest cuts backstage. Captain Charisma is seen marching down the hallway, and honestly he looks kind of pissed. Somehow this makes him even more attractive, but that doesn’t really matter right now. He storms into his office and much to his chagrin, he finds Veena sitting behind his desk, Louboutin clad feet propped up. She flashes CC a smile.)

Veena Adams: Hey Matty!

Captain Charisma: I just got a text message about the Gold Rush tournament being cancelled.

(Veena dramatically gasps.)

Veena Adams: Cancelled?!

Captain Charisma: Yes. I was supposed to be out at the ring right now, announcing the eight men who will compete in the tournament for the right to go to Pain for Pride and compete for the World Heavyweight Championship. You know entry into that tournament was Korey Gaines’ unique opportunity.

Veena Adams: Wow. That really sucks! What are you going to do?

Captain Charisma: Well I’m going to find out why the hell it’s been cancelled since it’s been a thing for the last couple of years or so. Then I guess I’m going to have to break the news to Korey.

Veena Adams: Awww! Poor Skater boi. That really sucks for him.

Captain Charisma (sighing): He earned that ticket into the Gold Rush by winning that ladder match.

Veena Adams: Ehhh. You love handing things out like candy, Matty. I’m sure you’ll figure SOMETHING else out for Korey.

(Captain Charisma doesn’t reply. He’s clearly aggravated about the recent turn of events. Tempest fades to its final commercial break.)

(Commercial break for EAW’s quad-branded FPV, Grand Rampage.)

(Tempest returns from break.)

(“It Follows” — Cane Hill plays through the speakers. The crowd erupts in boos as Xander Payne stands on top of the ramp as he has his arms out in confidence as he is taking in the boos. Xander is as confident as possible going into the match. It’s his most important match in his career, but he feels pretty good going into the match despite people doubting him.)

James Peters: On the last episode of Voltage, Noah Reigner managed to connect with an Ace in the Hole on Xander Payne! I don’t think that Noah will have any issue lifting Xander up, but Xander is going to do everything in his power to make sure that Noah does not pull off anything like that again! He has spent the week having not only Noah, but the majority of the locker room and even some of the fans in the arena tonight underestimate him! He may have size to his advantage. He may have that ruthless attitude, but Noah still manages to be a favorite going into this match. What do you think is running through Xander’s mind going into this match, Rich?

Rich Russillo: Anyone who is underestimating Xander Payne is an idiot! This guy is a monster in the ring! This is the biggest match in Xander’s career! He has managed to leave Noah Reigner beaten up! It is not impossible to leave Noah a beaten mess! Xander just needs to dig deep into that ruthlessness that he hasn’t brought out just yet! What Noah has said to him this week in his war of words should be considered enough motivation for Xander to do whatever it takes to walk out as the World Heavyweight Champion!

(Xander Payne is stretching himself out inside the ring as he waits for Noah Reigner to come out. A few moments later, “DON’T STOP” replaces “It Follows”. The crowd erupts in a massive pop as Noah Reigner comes out with Evelyn Ridley right behind him. Noah has the World Heavyweight Championship on his waist as he looks at the sea of fans tonight at Tempest. Noah has his full confidence in display before turning his attention to Xander Payne in the ring.)

Rich Russillo: Noah Reigner is confident as well! However, he has spent the week almost mocking Xander Payne from his weight to almost everything else! In a way, I do agree with you, Peter. I don’t think Noah is taking Xander as seriously as he should! Xander may not have the best winning streak! He may have had a little of a career spiral since losing the New Breed Championship, but I feel like Xander is just waiting for an opportunity like this to sink his teeth in!

James Peters: Noah Reigner has managed to make it through one title defense, but he needed a little help from Tyler Wolfe to retain his championship. :eyes: In a way, I think Noah is going into this match with full intentions to retain his championship by himself! He is going to go into this match without needing any sort of assistance from anyone! Noah is “The New Ace”. He needs to perform like one tonight and pull out something amazing in this match!

(“DON’T STOP” fades as Bella Braxton steps in the center of the ring. Xander Payne stands on her left side as Noah Reigner stands on her right as he unhooks the World Heavyweight Championship and places it on his shoulder. The reception of the crowd is electric as they await for the introductions.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING…

(The crowd cheers.)

Bella Braxton: …AND, IT’S FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first, the challenger, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, he is “Paynekiller”, XAAAAAAANNNNNNNNDDDEEEERRRRRRR PAAAAYYYYYYYYYNNNNNNNEEEEEE!!

(The crowd erupts in boos. Xander Payne is trash talking to the crowd as he has his hands out in the open in full confidence before gesturing for the World Heavyweight Championship on his waist before going back to his respective corner. Noah Reigner is waiting for his introduction as the crowd is getting a little anxious.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent, from Seattle, Washington, he is the CURRENT ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, “The New Ace”, NOOOOOAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH REEEEEEIGGGGNNNNNEEEEERRRRRR!!

(Noah Reigner raises his World Heavyweight Championship above his head in full confidence as the crowd gives him a pop. He holds the title high for a moment before handing the title off to the official. The official shows Xander Payne the World Heavyweight Championship as Xander looks at the title for a moment before nodding his head. It was a good reminder of what he and Noah are going to be fighting for. The official calls for the bell!)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Rich Russillo: THIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH IS UNDERWAY! World Heavyweight Champion, Noah Reigner takes on former New Breed Champion, Xander Payne! Now James, these two men have an obvious size advantage — Noah at 184 pounds. Xander at 240! It seems like Xander would need to incorporate his strength and power! Noah would have to rely on his speed and wits! The two men meet up in the center of the ring! Both men looking eye-to-eye at one another! This is gonna be an intense World Championship Match, guys!

(Noah Reigner and Xander Payne are having an exchange in the middle of the ring. Both men’s eyes haven’t left the other as they are fueled with anger and intensity. Xander is running his mouth, trying to get his own share of trash talking, but Noah is remaining calm and cool.)

James Peters: XANDER PAYNE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! Noah Reigner ducks and connects with a baseball slide as he manages to roll Xander to a seated position! Noah follows that with a dropkick that takes Xander to his back! Noah quickly goes for the cover, but Xander manages to lift Noah up before throwing him behind him! In response, Noah crashes onto his stomach! Xander rises back to his feet! Noah clutches his hand onto the ropes to assist him back to his feet! BUT, XANDER AGGRESSIVELY GETS NOAH BY HIS NECK BEFORE THROWING HIM ACROSS THE RING! WHAT IN THE WORLD? XANDER PAYNE JUST THREW NOAH REIGNER ACROSS THE RING WITH ALL THE EASE IN THE WORLD! XANDER IS NOT GOING TO JOKE AROUND IN THIS MATCH! NOAH SOMEHOW MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET AS XANDER FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE THAT TAKES THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OFF HIS FEET! NOAH FALLS ONTO HIS BACK AS XANDER GETS NOAH UP IN POSITION TO CONNECT WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! NOAH LANDS ON HIS NECK, BUT XANDER MAINTAINS CONTROL OF THE WAIST BEFORE CONNECTING WITH ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! LIKE LAST TIME, XANDER MAINTAINS CONTROL OF THE WAIST BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A THIRD GERMAN! A FOURTH! A FIFTH! A SIXTH! A SEVENTH! WITH THAT, XANDER LETS GO OF NOAH’S WAIST BEFORE NOAH LANDS ON HIS NECK!

Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE IS SOMEONE THAT PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE SERIOUSLY! THIS GUY IS A MONSTER IN THE RING! THIS GUY COULD RIP UP YOU AND THOSE YOU LOVE AND NOT FEEL ANY REMORSE ABOUT IT! NOAH REIGNER IS CLUTCHING THE BACK ON HIS NECK AS XANDER TRIES TO SAY ON THE OFFENSE! THE LAST THING THAT HE NEEDS TO DO IS GET NOAH BACK IN THIS MATCH AND RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP! Xander gets down and begins to throw some stiff punches at the World Heavyweight Champion! Xander is managing to get each shot in! Noah is defenseless at the moment as he cannot control these punches to his face! Xander gets Noah up by that pathetic highlighted hair before pushing him towards the corner! Xander holds Noah’s face at the corner before connecting with an uppercut that gets Noah sitting down on the middle row of the ropes! Xander begins to stomp on Noah’s stomach as he manages to get Noah in a seated position! NOAH IS DOWN AS HE TRIES TO RECOVER, BUT XANDER IS NOT GOING TO GIVE HIM ANYTIME! XANDER TAKES A COUPLE STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH A CANNONBALL SENTON ON NOAH REIGNER!

James Peters: NOAH REIGNER IS FLATTENED LIKE A PANCAKE AS XANDER PAYNE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! I WOULD NOT BE SHOCKED IF NOAH HAS SOME BROKEN RIBS FROM THAT SENTON! HE PULLS NOAH BY HIS LEG BEFORE TAKING HIM AWAY FROM THE ROPES BEFORE GOING FOR THE COVER!

…OOOOOOONE!!

Rich Russillo: Noah Reigner kicks out at one! Xander Payne seems calm about that at the moment, but I feel he has so much destruction to put onto this match! That should be quite terrifying! However, it just shows how much Xander wants to be World Heavyweight Champion! It just shows how much it would mean for him to win the match! Before Noah can get back to his feet, XANDER CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW DROP ON HIM! THAT MAKES NOAH FALL ONTO HIS BACK AGAIN! XANDER CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ELBOW DROP! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! SHOUT OUT TO THE GOAT, TALIB BARI BECAUSE XANDER PAYNE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ONE! XANDER RISES BACK TO HIS FEET! HE FEELS LIKE HE IS ON FIRE AS HE GETS NOAH BY HIS HEAD BEFORE THROWING HIM AGAINST THE CORNER AGAIN! NOAH CRASHES AGAINST THE CORNER! Xander runs towards Noah before connecting with a clothesline that sends Noah seated onto the middle rope! Xander pulls Noah by his right arm was he whips him to the opposite corner, but Noah ends up countering as he sends Xander crashing onto the corner! XANDER MANAGES TO HOLD ONTO THE CORNER, BUT NOAH DELIVERS A DEVASTATING DROPKICK TO XANDER AT THE CORNER! HOWEVER, IT SEEMS LIKE THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH TO GET THE “PAYNEKILLER” DOWN! NOAH TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK AGAIN BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH ANOTHER DROPKICK, BUT JUST LIKE LAST TIME, THAT DOES NOT EVEN BRING XANDER DOWN TO HIS KNEES! NOAH TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK ONCE AGAIN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A THIRD RUNNING DROPKICK AS THAT MANAGES TO MAKE XANDER STUMBLE FORWARD! NOAH FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SUPERKICK THAT TAKES XANDER BACK INTO THE CORNER! NOAH IS GOING TO NEED TO DO A LOT IF HE WANTS TO DEFEAT XANDER PAYNE!

James Peters: Just like it is going to take a lot to put Noah Reigner down, Rich! He is the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason! It seems like Noah is trying to regain a bit of the energy he lost as he steps on the second row of the turnbuckle before connecting with some punches to the top of Xander’s head! One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! Xander begins to hoist Noah into a powerbomb position! Seven! Eight! Nine! Xander Payne manages to connect with a powerbomb on Noah! Noah is flat on his back! Xander holds him there for a cover!

…OOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!

Rich Russillo: Noah Reigner kicks out of the pin! Xander Payne manages to get Noah and connecting with some elbows to the head! Now, it seems like Xander is going to go for a submission hold! Xander is trying to apply the crossface on Noah, but Noah is trying to scramble himself away from Xander for the time being! Xander is so determined to lock in the crossface! The World Heavyweight Champion could find himself in serious trouble at the moment! Xander manages to lock in the crossface! Noah is losing sight of where he is at the moment! Xander has made sure the block out any vision that Noah could have! Xander is applying more pressure on the submission hold! If he can get Noah Reigner to tap out, it would be such an amazing accomplishment for Xander Payne! It would be the biggest victory of his career! Noah is trying to reach for the bottom rope! This would be the only way to break free of the submission hold! Noah is struggling with trying to reach his long ass limbs to the bottom rope, but Xander is trying to pull Noah away and decrease his chances of having this submission hold released! You can hear the noise of pain from Noah, but he is not planning to quit anytime soon!

(The crowd begins to clap as a sign of encouragement. They are hoping that this could be some sort of way for Noah Reigner to get to the ropes, but Xander Payne is making sure that Noah doesn’t make it to the bottom ropes.)

James Peters: Noah Reigner is trying to claw to his side! It looks like Noah is going to try to make it to the bottom rope on his left side! He is scratching and clawing! He is making sure that he is going to deep deep in order to save this match and his title reign! Noah is getting closer, but the more he tries to reach his arm, the more farther it seems, but he is not going to let that stop him! Evelyn Ridley is underneath the bottom rope as she is smacking her hands against the apron! She is trying to root Noah as — Noah makes it to the bottom rope, but he has his foot underneath the bottom rope! Xander Payne is going to need to release the hold!

ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE!

Rich Russillo: Xander Payne releases the crossface, but Noah Reigner still doesn’t feel any better at the moment! You can see the look of anger and intensity on Xander’s face, James! This is one man you do not want to mess with! Xander manages to get Noah back to his feet, but Noah seems to be a little wobbly at the moment! Noah falls back against the ropes as Xander goes right after the champion! Xander gets Noah by his right arm as he delivers a whip as Noah goes rebounding off those ropes! Noah manages to connect with a baseball slide as he spins his feet around to sweep Xander off his feet, but Xander manages to stumble back, so Noah takes advantage of that by connecting with a chop block to bring the former New Breed Champion to one knee! Noah rapidly gets back to his feet before running and rebounding from the ropes to connect with a dropkick, but that does not bring Xander to his back! NOAH GOES RIGHT BEHIND XANDER BEFORE APPLYING A SLEEPERHOLD! HOWEVER, IT SEEMS LIKE NOAH IS HAVING A TOUGH TIME WITH COMPLETELY APPLYING THE SLEEPERHOLD! JUST LIKE IT WAS STATED EARLIER IN THIS MATCH, JAMES. XANDER IS 240 POUNDS! GOING INTO THIS MATCH, NOAH SHOULD HAVE RECONSIDERED THE MOVES THAT HE CAN DO IN THIS MATCH! SUBMISSION HOLDS SUCH AS A SLEEPERHOLD WILL GIVE HIM A TOUGH TIME, BUT IT’S NOT POSSIBLE! I MEAN, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IN THIS COMPANY! NOAH IS DOING HIS BEST TO WEAR DOWN XANDER WITH THE SLEEPERHOLD, BUT BY THE LOOK ON XANDER’S FACE, GOING TO SLEEP IS THE LAST THING ON HIS MIND! THIS MAN IS HUNGRY TO BECOME A WORLD CHAMPION!

James Peters: Xander Payne is forcing himself back up to his feet, but Noah Reigner still has the sleeperhold applied! I have no idea how Xander is managing to do all of this! Regardless of the size of the competitor, getting a sleeperhold applied to you is not a pleasant thing and if you’re not like Xander, you are going to pass out from it! I’m amazed at Xander using all the strength in him to pick himself up, but Noah is not going to let go of a that submission move as well! Xander rushes backwards to the corner as Noah’s back collides with the turnbuckle! Noah is crying out in pain, but he still has that sleeperhold applied! Xander goes forward before running backwards as Noah goes crashing onto the turnbuckle again! Noah seems to have lost his grip as Xander uses that as an opportunity to pry Noah off his back and flip him to a seated position! Xander runs towards the ropes in front of Noah before rebounding off of them and connecting with a forearm smash to a seated Noah Reigner! That takes the World Heavyweight Champion down to the ground! Xander Payne gets back to his feet right away as he gets Noah back to his feet as well! Noah manages to push Xander away enough to distance himself from him! XANDER GOES BACK TO NOAH, BUT NOAH STOPS XANDER IN HIS TRACKS BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A ST-NOAH, THE STO AS THAT FLOORS THE CHALLENGER! NOAH REIGNER IS DOWN FOR THE MOMENT, BUT HE KNOWS THAT HE NEEDS TO STAY ON THE OFFENSE! HE LET XANDER DOMINATE A GOOD CHUNK OF THIS MATCH SO FAR! THE LAST THING HE NEEDS TO DO IS FOR XANDER TO CONTROL THIS MATCH EVEN MORE! NOAH QUICKLY GOES FOR THE PIN ON XANDER!

…OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Rich Russillo: Xander Payne kicks out at two! Noah Reigner was able to connect with the ST-NOAH out of nowhere, but like it was stated before, it is going to take A LOT to put Xander down for the three count! Noah gets Xander by the head as he gets him on a vertical base! Noah uses his shoulder as he pushes Xander onto the turnbuckle! Noah connects with a few shoulder thrusts to Xander’s stomach! Xander bends down in response to that as Noah begins to throw some punches onto Xander’s back! Each of those punches are doing enough work to bring the bigger man down to his knees! Noah manages to get Xander to all fours before connecting with a switchblade kick that gets Xander down even more! NOAH DECIDES TO STAY ON THE OFFENSE BY CONNECTING WITH MULTIPLE KNEE STRIKES TO XANDER’S HEAD! THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IS TRYING TO WEAR DOWN HIS CHALLENGER BY THOSE KNEE STRIKES! XANDER IS TRYING TO COVER HIS HEAD IN ORDER TO AVOID THE KNEE STRIKES, BUT THOSE KNEES ARE COMING SO QUICKLY AT XANDER, IT MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO DO SO! XANDER WAVES HIS HAND IN FRONT OF NOAH, ALMOST TRYING TO GET HIS ATTENTION, BUT NOAH MANAGES TO GET XANDER’S ARM AS HE HAS A STANDING ARMBAR ON THE CHALLENGER! XANDER IS TRYING TO RETRIEVE HIS ARM AWAY FROM NOAH, BUT NOAH BENDS XANDER’S ARM BACK BEFORE SMACKING IT AGAINST THE MAT! INSTANTLY, YOU CAN HEAR XANDER YELLING IN PAIN AS HE CLUTCHES INTO RIGHT ARM!

James Peters: The best approach for Noah Reigner in this match could be to target a body part of Xander Payne that he may find useful! His right arm is a good one! Noah manages to get Xander’s right arm once again before bending it back again before connecting with a single arm DDT on Xander! Xander goes back to clutching his arm in pain as he manages to roll himself out of the ring! It seems like Xander Payne is going to buy himself some time! It seems like Noah did a pretty good job with wearing down that right arm! Xander is walking around ringside, trying to regain feeling back to his arm! NOAH REIGNER IS NOT A PRETTY BIG FAN OF HAVING HIS TIME WASTED AS HE BOUNCES FROM THE ROPES AND GOES THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE TO CONNECTING WITH A SUICIDE DIVE THAT COLLIDES HIM WITH XANDER PAYNE! XANDER WAS TRYING TO CATCH NOAH, BUT THAT ARM WAS GIVING HIM QUITE AN ISSUE AS THE TWO MEN COLLIDE AGAINST THE FRONT OF OUR TABLE! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN FOR THE MOMENT, BUT IT’S NOAH THAT MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET! HE GETS XANDER UP BY HIS HEAD BEFORE RUNNING AND THROWING XANDER HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE STEEL TURNBUCKLE! XANDER’S HEAD GOES BOUNCING BACK AS HE SEEMS COMPLETELY LOST AT THE MOMENT! THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION SEEMS LIKE HE IS FINDING HIS WAY INTO THIS MATCH AS HE GETS XANDER BACK TO HIS FEET AGAIN! NOAH HAS XANDER BY HIS HEAD AGAIN BEFORE RUNNING AND THROWING IT AGAINST THE STEEL RING POST AGAIN! XANDER PAYNE GOES CRASHING DOWN! THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FIRST TIMES THAT WE HAVE SEEN XANDER DOWN IN THIS MOMENT!

Rich Russillo: NOAH REIGNER GETS XANDER PAYNE BACK TO HIS FEET! NOAH GETS XANDER’S RIGHT ARM BEFORE WHIPPING HIM AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS! XANDER’S BACK COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL STEPS! NOAH GETS XANDER’S RIGHT ARM! JAMES, THIS IS THE SAME ARM THAT NOAH WAS WORKING ON AT A FEW MOMENTS AGO! NOAH EXTENDS XANDER’S ARM BACK BEFORE BASHING IT AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS! XANDER CRIES OUT IN PAIN AGAIN AS HE IS CLUTCHING ONTO HIS RIGHT ARM! NOAH GETS THE STEEL STEPS AND SEPARATES IT FROM THE RING POST BEFORE PLACING XANDER’S ARM IN FRONT OF THE RING POST. THE STEEL STEPS ARE IN POSITION RIGHT IN FRONT OF XANDER’S ARM BEFORE NOAH TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING AND DELIVERING A DROPKICK DIRECTLY AT THE STEEL STEPS! AT THE SAME TIME, THE STEEL STEPS CRUSH XANDER’S ARM AS THAT GOES BASHING AGAINST THE STEEL RING POST! NOAH SEPARATES HIMSELF FROM XANDER, WHO IS ANXIOUSLY TRYING TO GET HIS RIGHT ARM AWAY FROM THE STEEL STEPS! THAT HAS GOT TO HURT LIKE A BITCH! I WOULD NOT BE SHOCKED IF HIS ARM ISN’T INJURED AT THIS MOMENT! XANDER GETS HIMSELF TO A SEATED POSITION AS HE IS CLUTCHING HIS RIGHT ARM IN PAIN! But, Noah seems like he is not going to waste anymore time! Noah Reigner with a sliding forearm smash to a seated Xander Payne! Xander falls to his back, but his head collides with the steel steps that were previously used as a weapon! Noah got one lucky shot! Xander seems out of it at the moment as he rolls Xander back in the ring! Noah gets on the apron before heading for the top rope!

(Noah Reigner tries to situate himself on the top turnbuckle. Meanwhile, Xander Payne is a little wobbly, but he someone makes it back to his feet! He is unaware of where Noah is at at the moment as he turns himself around …)

James Peters: NOAH REIGNER WITH A DIVING KNEE DROP ON XANDER PAYNE!

Rich Russillo: NO! XANDER PAYNE MANAGES TO CATCH NOAH REIGNER FROM MIDAIR BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SPINEBUSTER! HOW IN THE WORLD DID XANDER PAYNE MANAGE TO DO ALL OF THAT? THE GUY SEEMED OUT OF IT MOMENTS AGO! XANDER JUST CONNECTED WITH A SPINEBUSTER ON NOAH! NOAH SEEMS TO BE FAVORING HIS NECK AT THE MOMENT! XANDER GETS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! HE HAS A CANADIAN RACK ON NOAH REIGNER — OVERDOSE! XANDER CONNECTS WITH THE CANADIAN RACK AS NOAH GETS DROPPED ON XANDER’S KNEE! NOAH GOES BACK AGAINST THE ROPE! HE DOESN’T FALL COMPLETELY ONTO HIS BACK AS HE MANAGES TO CATCH HIMSELF ON HIS ROPES, BUT XANDER IS NOT GOING TO LET THAT PHASE HIM AT ALL! XANDER GETS NOAH IN POSITION FOR THE PAYNEKILLER! THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER ON NOAH REIGNER!

James Peters: No! Noah Reigner manages to maintain his feet on the ground! Noah knows that if he allows Xander Payne to hit this move! It is going to be over for him! He cannot allow that to happen at all! Xander tries to get Noah in position for Paynekiller, but Noah is not letting his feet go off the ground! Xander is trying to go for the Painkiller for the third time in these past few minutes, but Noah still has his feet planted on the ground! NOAH MANAGES TO PUSH XANDER PAYNE AWAY FROM HIM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A FOREARM THAT ONLY STAGGERS XANDER, BUT XANDER THROWS A FOREARM TO NOAH! NOAH THROWS A FOREARM TO XANDER! XANDER THROWS ONE TO NOAH! NOAH! XANDER! NOAH! XANDER! NOAH! XANDER! NOAH! NOAH! NOAH! NOAH MANAGES TO BACK XANDER AGAINST THE ROPES BEFORE GETTING HIM BY HIS RIGHT ARM, BUT XANDER COUNTERS THE WHIP! NOAH GOES BOUNCING OFF THOSE ROPES AS XANDER CONNECTS WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK! NOAH GOES FLYING BACK AS HE FINDS HIMSELF ON HIS BACK! This was something that Xander needed to do as he gets Noah Reigner by his head before throwing him through the middle rope! The World Heavyweight Champion falls to ringside as Xander has taken control of this match once again! Xander is trying to shake some feeling back to his right arm before getting Noah to his feet before throwing him onto the barricade! Xander goes right after Noah and connects with some stiff elbows onto Noah’s head as he is going fast with them! There is no stopping Xander Payne from causing as much destruction as he can!

Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE STOPS CONNECTING WITH THOSE HORRIBLE ELBOWS TO NOAH REIGNER! NOAH IS DOWN FOR THE TIME BEING BEFORE HE GOES OVER TO THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA! BELLA BRAXTON IS FREAKED OUT AS SHE MOVES THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY! THIS LEAVES AN EMPTY STEEL CHAIR FOR XANDER TO SHUT CLOSED! REMEMBER WHEN WE SAID THAT XANDER CAN BE DANGEROUS IN THESE HIGH STAKES MATCHES? WELL, YOU ARE GOING TO GET THAT RIGHT NOW! XANDER BRINGS THE STEEL CHAIR ABOVE HIS HEAD —

James Peters: EVELYN RIDLEY SWIPES THE STEEL CHAIR AWAY FROM XANDER PAYNE’S GRASP!

Rich Russillo: Is this bitch crazy? Xander Payne has eaten women like her for breakfast! Evelyn Ridley is nothing compared to the monster that is Xander Payne!

(With the steel chair in her possession, Evelyn Ridley stands toe-to-toe with Xander Payne. Evelyn is not scared of Xander, which may or may not be a mistake on her part, but Xander is not going to let her get away with anything.)

Xander Payne (no mic): WHY DO YOU BOTHER GETTING INVOLVED IN HIS BUSINESS? WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL THAT HE IS NEVER GOING TO LOVE YOU —

James Peters: EVELYN RIDLEY STRIKES THE STEEL CHAIR AT XANDER PAYNE!

Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE RIPS THE STEEL CHAIR FROM EVELYN RIDLEY’S GRASP!

James Peters: XANDER PAYNE WACKS EVELYN RIDLEY’S BACK WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! Evelyn falls down to her knees before Xander Payne swings the steel chair again before walking Evelyn head first with it! Evelyn falls to her side as Xander Payne gets Evelyn back to her feet! The steel chair is under her as Xander gets Evelyn position! Is he going to go for the Paynekiller on that steel chair? Evelyn Ridley was looking out for her friend! She was looking out for Noah Reigner! Who knows what would have happened is she never got involved! Xander gets Evelyn in position — PAAAAYYYYYYNNNNNNNEEEEEEEKIIIILLLLLLEEEEERRRRRRRRR!! THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER ON EVELYN RIDLEY! THAT MONSTER! HE JUST LAID OUT EVELYN LIKE THAT!

Rich Russillo: It would teach her not to stick her nose in business that does not belong to her! She should have stayed in her lane, but nope! She wanted to play superhero! She wanted to save Noah Reigner from Xander Payne probably murdering him! Xander gets back! The crowd is getting more in a frenzy, but Xander puts not much attention to it as he finds his way back to his feet before he turns around —

James Peters: THE KILL SHOT! THE SICK KICK! NOAH REIGNER SPRINGS BACK TO LIFE! Noah gets Xander Payne by his head before bashing his head against the edge of the apron before rolling Xander back into the ring! Noah slides underneath the ring as well before going for the cover! It seems like this is going to be it, Rich!

…OOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: Xander Payne grasps onto the bottom rope! The official sees Xander’s hand on the bottom rope! The official waves off the count! This match still goes on as Noah Reigner has an irked look on her face! Noah was so confident that The Kill Shot was going to be it! He only needs one direct shot, but it seems like he took quite a while with getting Xander back into the ring! That, combined with Xander’s great ring awareness, is what is making this match continue! Noah is on an emotional high right now. He just saw his bodyguard and friend just be attacked by Xander Payne, you could say that his emotions are what is keeping him going in this match! Noah is back up on his feet as he gestures and yells for Xander to get back to his feet! Watch out, Xander! This may not be good for you in the end!

(Xander Payne slowly rising back to his feet as he turns around …)

James Peters: NOAH REIGNER GOES RIGHT AFTER XANDER PAYNE BY CONNECTING WITH A SHOT DOWN! THE JUMPING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT! XANDER GETS PLANTED TO THE MAT AS NOAH GOES FOR THE COVER! THIS COULD BE ENOUGH FOR THE VICTORY, RICH!

…OOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Rich Russillo: Xander Payne manages to kick out! Xander is still in this match as Noah Reigner seems to be getting more irritated! All he wants to do is put down Xander! Xander has looked fantastic in this match! He has proven that he is more than worthy of hanging with some of the best on the Voltage brand! Xander has watched men that he loathes like Myles potentially surpassing him and Drake King, winning the Interwire Championship at Under Siege! Xander wants to make that jump from a New Breed God to become a God among men on Voltage! Xander is not going to quit! Xander is not going to give up one bit! Noah gets back to a vertical base as he brings Xander along with him! XANDER DELIVERS A HUGE FOREARM TO NOAH, BUT NOAH DELIVERS A HUGE FOREARM TO XANDER! XANDER! NOAH! XANDER! NOAH! XANDER! XANDER! XANDER! XANDER IS GROGGY ON HIS FEET AS HE SLOPPILY PUSHES NOAH AGAINST THE ROPES! NOAH DOES HIS BEST TO HOLD ONTO THE ROPES AS XANDER GOES RIGHT AFTER HIM, BUT NOAH GETS HIS FOOT AND PUSHES XANDER AWAY FROM HIM! NOAH REBOUNDS FROM THOSE SAME ROPES AGAIN — THE KILL SHOT! THE KILL SHOT ON XANDER PAYNE! THE KILL SHOT BRINGS XANDER TO HIS KNEES AS NOAH SEEMS LIKE HE IS GOING TO TRY SOMETHING ELSE! NOAH GETS ON XANDER’S BACK! IS HE GOING TO GO FOR ANOTHER SLEEPERHOLD ON XANDER?

James Peters: Nope! It looks like he is going for the crossface chickenwing, Rich! Noah Reigner is applying the crossface chickenwing on Xander Payne! He now has the body scissors on Xander as Xander falls to the submission hold! Noah has the crossface chickening applied completely as Xander is trying to reach for the bottom rope! He is trying to reach for something that could be useful for him to get out of the hold! Xander is not trying to roll himself over so that he is above Noah, but Noah is not letting that happen whatsoever! Noah is yelling for Xander to tap out! Noah would love nothing more than to make Xander submit!

(Evelyn Ridley, who is seen recovering as she is pounding her hands on the apron, trying to get Noah Reigner to apply more pressure onto the submission hold! Noah does that as Xander Payne continues to struggle to get out of the hold.)

Rich Russillo: THE OFFICIAL IS CHECKING ON XANDER PAYNE, BUT XANDER IS NOT RESPONDING TO HIM! NOAH REIGNER IS DEMANDING FOR THE OFFICIAL TO RING THE BELL, BUT THE OFFICIAL GETS XANDER’S ARM UP BEFORE DROPPING IT DOWN! THE OFFICIAL GETS XANDER’S ARM AGAIN BEFORE BRINGING IT UP BEFORE DROPPING IT DOWN AGAIN! IF THIS HAPPENS ONE MORE TIME, THIS MATCH WILL STOP VIA STOPPAGE! THIS CANNOT GO ON! THE OFFICIAL GETS XANDER’S ARM UP —

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: :lupe:

Evelyn Ridley: :lupe:

Crowd: :lupe:

World: :lupe:

James Peters: — XANDER PAYNE’S ARM DROPS FOR A THIRD TIME! THE OFFICIAL IS GOING TO CALL FOR THE BELL! THIS MATCH IS OVER!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“DON’T STOP” plays once again as Noah Reigner holds the crossface chickenwing for a bit more before releasing the hold as Xander Payne falls onto his back. He is unconscious and out of it. Noah gets on his knees as Evelyn Ridley joins him back in the ring as he gives him the World Heavyweight Championship before getting Noah up before raising his hand in victory along with the official.)

Bella Braxton: THE WINNER AND STILL ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, NOOOOOOAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH REEEEIIIIGGGGHHHHNNNNNEEEEEEERRRRRR!!!

Rich Russillo: Noah Reigner manages to retain the World Heavyweight Championship! This was a well-fought battle and I believe Xander Payne surprised a few people going into this match! Not much people believe that Xander would give Noah much of a fight, but he proved that he could be a credible threat for any championship on Voltage! I mean, this guy didn’t give a damn about who he hurt, he was going to hurt them! He managed to connect with Paynekiller to Evelyn Ridley onto the steel chair with no hesitation at all! The thought that Evelyn is still standing from that is unbelievable!

James Peters: It seemed like those mind games came back to haunt Xander Payne! Noah Reigner knew that he needed to do whatever he took to wear down Xander! That is where the crossface chickenwing came into the equation! The Kill Shot may have been enough, but Noah wanted to make sure that Xander stayed down period!

Rich Russillo: Good gawd, what a match.

James Peters: What a fucking show.

Rich Russillo: You know what this means, right?

James Peters: :wow: Grand Rampage is upon us.

Rich Russillo: Pain for Pride season is almost here.

James Peters: Voltage threw down the gauntlet tonight and set the standard.

Rich Russillo: I’m so proud of this roster and what they accomplished here tonight. Everyone went after what they wanted, and we got a few surprises along the way.

James Peters: You mean like Jordie Ripley being a fucking jezebel?

Rich Russillo: :wow:

James Peters: It’s lit. That’s all we’ve got for you guys. Thank you EAW Universe and goodnight.
