(EAW intro plays.)
(The intro fades into a highlight video of last week’s Voltage episode.)
(For the second week in a row, Ms. Extreme found herself banned from the building, but there was some good news for Ms. Extreme this time around. At King of Elite, she will be facing Dr. Bethany Blue for the Interwire Championship. The opening match of the night saw Lars Grier completely destroy Shaun Gascoigne. The match was nothing more than a glorified squash. Lars wanted to continue the beatdown on Gascoigne but his opponent for King of Elite, Consuela Rose Ava would come down and make the save. The next match of the night would pit Jesse Barlow against Shortfuse PAKA, and PAKA’s nemesis, Korey Gaines, would join commentary. The match would end when Korey got involved, and as a result PAKA would get the win via disqualification. One-half of SASS, Sarah Price, would take on Consuela in a great back and forth match. Consuela would pick up the win and both women would show each other a tremendous amount of respect. As Consuela would leave the ring, Lars would attack her and spear her right through the barricade! The other half of SASS, Sierra Bradford would compete in her first ever EAW Deathmatch. The newcomer would pick up her second win of the weekend after forcing Komatsu Ogawa to pass out in a submission hold. Terry Chambers and Andrea Valentine would meet in the middle of the ring after Terry called Andrea out. Terry would throw out a stipulation for their King of Elite match and Andrea would accept. That’s how we got ourselves a Chains Match for the EAW World Championship. As far the main event goes, well it was certainly filled with its fair share of fuckery. Ms. Extreme would show up after somehow getting a ticket to sit in the front row. Dr. Bethany Blue would be a little unsettled, especially after her trusted nurse, Nurse Goldstein, would have to leave earlier in the evening. Charlie Marr would of course take advantage of the situation. The tension between Ms. Extreme and Dr. Blue would boil over and Ms. Extreme would ultimately end up costing Dr. Blue a chance to make history and advance to the King of Elite finals. Ms. Extreme would end up arrested and led out of Voltage in handcuffs.)
(The highlight video fades out and we cut to live action inside the Stark Arena in Belgrade, Serbia. The Serbians are on their feet as “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami plays throughout the arena. Gold and white pyro shoots from the stage and once the smoke clears, the camera cuts to Rich Russillo and James Peters who are standing up behind the broadcast booth. The Voltage duo wear T-shirts with a picture of Ms. Extreme’s mugshot on it :wow:.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Sunday Night Voltage!
Rich Russillo: Last week, Charlie Marr became Voltage’s King of Elite finalist.
James Peters: But that was not without a little bit of controversy, Rich. Ms. Extreme would end up arrested thanks to her actions against Dr. Bethany Blue, and their match at King of Elite should be intense to say the least. It’s personal between those two women.
Rich Russillo: I feel like it’s going to be pretty personal later on tonight when Rex McAllister steps into the ring against Chris Elite. Last night on Showdown, Raven Roberts scored the win over Ahren Fournier, and no doubt Rex wants to keep that momentum going Fire and Ice. The two teams will meet at King of Elite with a chance to score a future match for the Unified Tag Team Championships. There’s a lot on the line there.
James Peters: The stakes are high everywhere because with each show, we find ourselves inching closer and closer to the big show. Pain for Pride will be here before we know it, and everyone wants to put their best foot forward from here on out. We have a great lineup, and I personally can’t wait to get things started.
Rich Russillo: Tonight’s matches are filled with Elitists looking to help themselves out as we move forward to King of Elite. Zak Simmons and Shawn Sturgis are looking to keep the ball rolling towards their showdown with New Breed Champion, Justin Windgate, and Sierra Bradford looks to continue sending the message to Darcy May Morgan that she should be competing for the Specialists Championship.
James Peters: Lars Grier and Terry Chambers are switching opponents for the night. Lars will take on Andrea Valentine in a rematch of sorts that dates back to Territorial Invasion 2018 when Lars defeated Andrea for the Openweight Championship. As for Terry, he is going to face Consuela Rose Ava, who is looking to avenge a loss she suffered with Andrea two weeks ago when Terry pinned her during a tag team match.
Rich Russillo: It’s lit!
(Rich and James stop talking and their attention is immediately diverted to the stage. The crowd is booing the hell out of Jordie Marr, who has just walked out. The petite blonde is dressed in a stunning midnight blue evening gown by Alexander McQueen and on top of her golden curls sits a beautiful platinum and jewel encrusted tiara.)
Jordie Marr: I said AHEM!!!!
(The boos are deafening at this point and Jordie has to cover her ears with her hands. That just makes the crowd react even louder and finally Jordie’s had enough.)
Jordie Marr: You people are so tacky! I’m not sure what I expected by coming to a country that only knows about war and political unrest, but whatever. That’s not going to stop me from introducing the man who has proudly ruled over this brand since June. The man, who in two weeks time will have his official coronation as king! All hail the King of Elite Answers Wrestling… KING CHARLES MARR THE FIRST!!!
(The booing doesn’t stop as “It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta starts to blast throughout the arena. Charlie Marr walks out dressed in a suit that matches Jordie’s gown and a crown that is similar to hers. Jordie looks at him with heart eyes and hooks her arm through his. Together, EAW’s royal couple begin to make their way down to the ring. Jordie walks up the steps first and sits down on the ropes for her king. Charlie gets into the ring, adjusts his crown, and waits for Jordie to step up beside him. She clings to his arm and passes him the microphone.)
Charlie Marr: That was such a lovely introduction from my wife and queen.
(Charlie kisses Jordie on the forehead and begins to talk.)
Charlie Marr: I’m a lucky man to have a woman who knows her role and loves it. The same can’t be said for that ball-less sack of shit, Jamie O’Hara. Not only did he allow his cumslut of a wife to beat him for the Answers World Championship back at Road to Redemption, he simped for her last night too. Imagine being a weak ass vanilla midget who’s armbar can’t even make a 130-pound woman tap out. It’s a sad fucking day when the so-called ‘Ace’ needs the help of a beached whale in order to advance to the King of Elite finals. Wonder what would have happened had Xander Payne not waddled his fat ass down to the ring and attacked Jamie? Would Jamie have actually won the match? I doubt it. I’m not buying this bullshit he is trying to sell about putting 2019 behind him and letting go of what he failed to fucking do. That dumb cunt continued to fail in the big-time situations. His fucking inadequacy cost him an Answers World Championship match against Theron Nikolas :mjlol:. Then he couldn’t follow up his victory at Grand Rampage at Pain for Pride, which really pissed me off because I did all the work in that match on my way to setting the record for the most ever eliminations. War Games was a fucking disaster. Imagine losing to three of the most useless sluts this sport has ever seen. Couldn’t be me. Jamie O’Hara makes me sick and if last year taught us anything, it’s that Charlie Marr is better than Jamie O’Hara. The biased fucking referees on Dynasty had to stop the match in order to save that husk of a former champion from having his career ended by me. At King of Elite, I finally get Jamie inside the ring again and mark my words, I’m going to emasculate him worse than Cameron Ella Ava does every time they’re in bed together.
Charlie Marr: As far as the Dynasty represenative goes, does it fucking matter at this point who it is? The Visual Prophet spent last season in my fucking shadow wishing to Gawd he could be Charlie Marr. The fact he’s got the balls to act like him winning is just a formality is hilarious because he’s too much of a pussy to face a glorified jobber when he’s supposed to face him. Ain’t nobody buying this bullshit about Viz making everyone wait. That faggot just doesn’t want to face the possibility that he is going to end up losing another big time match. There are very few things in this world that are guarantees. Charlie Marr being better than everyone is one of them. The Visual Prophet coming up short in a big match is another. We’re making the assumption he’s beating this other bitch, because who the fuck is NvL anyway? Never heard of her. But hey, that was the entire Dynasty King of Elite bracket, now wasn’t it? It was nothing more than a handful of jobbers and Viz, and the whole thing was designed to give him an opportunity he had no chance of getting otherwise. It will all be for nought though, because the only person who is leaving Italy with that crown is me.
Charlie Marr: When my EAW Championship was stolen from me at Road to Redemption, I made it my goal to destroy everyone and everything that tried to stand in my path. I want my championship back and I will get it back, and King of Elite is just another step towards getting that championship around my waist again. I will do whatever it takes to make sure that happens, and I will fuck up whoever tries to step in my path.
(Charlie pauses for a moment, and as he does “Stabbing In The Dark” by Ice Nine Kills begins to blast across the PA system. The audience seems a little shocked as Komatsu Ogawa saunters out onto the stage with a microphone in hand.)
Charlie Marr: Who the fuck are you?
Komatsu Ogawa: Truthfully, Charles, it doesn’t matter who the fuck I am in this scenario. What matters is that you are a man who likes a good fight and so am I. Now I have a match later on tonight, but teaming with a dumb fuck like The Woogieman and facing people like Zak Simmons and Shawn Sturgis is not what I had in mind when I signed with EAW. I want to face the so-called badasses of this brand, and you are a man who has been in a lot of wars. The Barbed Wire Massacre Matches you have been in are legendary and so are all the other crazy ass matches you’ve competed in. I’m a deathmatch master myself, and I’m out here to challenge you. You fancy yourself the King of EAW, well guess what? I’m the fucking Serpent King.
Charlie Marr: :skip:
(Charlie turns and looks directly at Jordie.)
Charlie Marr: Did you hire this Asian to play a joke on me?
Jordie Marr: What? No! Of course not.
Charlie Marr: I know you’re still holding a bit of a grudge from when I ruined our dinner in Paris a few weeks ago because I thought Malcolm Jones had gotten into our room, but fucking with me two weeks before I’m officially crowned King of Elite isn’t a smart move, babe.
Jordie Marr: Are you fucking serious right now? That man works here, and I think he’s legitimately challenging you to a match next week.
Charlie Marr: :skip:
(Charlie turns his attention back towards Komatsu who is leering at Jordie. The blonde feels a little uncomfortable and she moves behind Charlie, pressing her face against his back.)
Charlie Marr: So you really do work here?
Komatsu Ogawa: Stop clowning around. You know good and goddamn well that I’m one of the sickest bastards to ever step foot in this sport and I got no problem playing spoiler and ending your chances at heading to King of Elite.
Charlie Marr: The fact you are even out here addressing me leaves me baffled and confused. They really just sign anyone these days, and I really don’t understand this at all. Do you honest to Gawd think that you can just step out here and demand a match with me? Do you have a deathwish?
Komatsu Ogawa: Perhaps I do, but while I’m here I want to have some fun. Last week I got the blood of Sarah Price and Sierra Bradford on my hands, and despite coming up short in that match, I have never felt so alive.
Charlie Marr: Imagine losing to a slut whose only purpose is to suck the virgin dick of Drake King. Couldn’t be me.
Komatsu Ogawa: Imagine losing your world championship to someone you said had no place inside the ring.
Charlie Marr: Alright, you fucking bozo. If you want to clout chase and have a match with someone actually worth a damn here in EAW, you got it. But don’t fucking blame me for what happens to you on Voltage. King of Elite is right around the corner and I wasn’t joking when I said I was going to rip everything that gets in my way to pieces. Your stupid ass, wannabe serial killer narrative and fake attacks don’t mean a goddamn thing to me because when you stare into my eyes, you are looking at man who has no heart. You are looking at someone who has no soul. You are looking at someone who has done unimaginable things inside the ring and has gotten away with it. The last thing you want is a match against me, so be careful what you wish for.
(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta begins to blast across the PA system, and on the stage, Komatsu Ogawa grins like a maniac having just gotten himself the biggest match of his career so far. He points at Charlie and makes a throat slashing gesture before turning and walking off. Charlie glares at his opponent next week while Jordie looks on in concern.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for the Netflix docuseries, ‘Cheer.’ Fall down the rabbit hole of the world of competitive cheerleader and procrastinate on your writing.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to Bella Braxton, who is inside the ring. She wears a gorgeous, fitted pink sequined cocktail dress and clear spiked stilettos.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: AND IT’S A TAG TEAM MATCH!
(“Stabbing In The Dark” By Ice Nine Kills echoes throughout the arena as Komatsu Ogawa appears on stage. He stops for a moment and glares at the crowd, as he EAW fans in attendance boo him out of the building. He then walks down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Tokyo, Japan… weighing in at 251 pounds… He is the Serpent King! Komatsu Ogawa!!!
James Peters: Komatsu Ogawa was very clear this week when asked to comment about his upcoming tag team match against Shawn Sturgis and Zak Simmons: he simply does not care.
Rich Russillo: I mean, why would he? He already defeated The Woogieman in single competition. He doesn’t have beef against Sturgis nor Simmons. But you know what, James? Komatsu is someone who loves to fight and he sure loves to hurt people as well. Tonight he gets not just one, but two opponents to hurt! I’m sure he’ll be happy. Please he has a huge match coming up with Charlie Marr next week!
James Peters: That’s right. Before the break, Komatsu came out and interrupted Charlie, challenging the former EAW World Champion to a match. During the break, Captain Charisma made it official and the two men will meet in next week’s main event!
(Ogawa approaches the turnbuckle as his music fades)
(“If Ya Smell” By Adam Massare blasts through the speakers as The Woogieman appears on stage, accompanied by Hannah Marin. The two walk down the ramp as the crowd reacts strongly to the entrance)
Bella Braxton: And his tag team partner… from Jacksonville, Florida, weighing in at 260 pounds… Accompanied to the ring by Hannah Marin, The Woogieman!
Rich Russillo: These two… just what in the world is happening here? Has Hannah Marin lost her mind? Her and Jesse Barlow used to be EAW’s number one couple!
James Peters: Hold on just a minute, partner. I am not entirely sure that Hannah Marin is happy with her current situation. All I know is that this intricate “love” triangle is going to unfold at some point and man, I am sure Jesse is going to beat the heck out of The Woogieman here.
(Hannah Marin doesn’t enter the ring and just stands at ringside while The Woogieman salutes the crowd)
(“King of the World” by Porcelain Black hits as Zak Simmons shows up on stage. He holds the Big Bak Bhampionship around his waist as he looks down to the ring. )
Rich Russillo: When I think of “Intensity” I think of Zak Simmons. This guy is one of the most fearsome fighters on Voltage and he is out here tonight on a mission.
James Peters: They call him The Machine for a reason. Zak Simmons is ruthless and relentless. Tonight The Woogieman and Komatsu Ogawa are going to find out just how tough the Big Bak Bhampion is.
(Zak Simmons enters the ring and stares down The Woogieman, as his music fades)
(‘Beautiful People’ by Marilyn Manson echoes throughout the arena as Shawn Sturgis makes his entrance)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his partner… from Riverside California, weighing in at 199 pounds, he is The Fresh Prince of Mid Air… Shawn Sturgis!
Rich Russillo: Many people said Shawn Sturgis and Zak Simmons cannot coexist, that they cannot work together as a team. This week Shawn Sturgis said it very clear: him and Zak Simmons will be on the same page tonight, they will learn how to work together as a unit. The Woogieman and Komatsu Ogawa will be their first victims.
(Shawn Sturgis creepily stares down his opponents as the referee tells him and Zak Simmons to back up to their corner so that the match can get underway)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And here we go! The match is on! Looks like The Woogieman and Shawn Sturgis are going to start things off tonight, as Hannah Marin looks on by ringside.
Rich Russillo: The two lock up in the middle of the ring, let’s see who can get the upper hand in the early part of the match. The Woogieman pushes Shawn Sturgis to the ground with ease! Maybe Hannah’s presence at ringside is giving him extra power!
James Peters: You know what Rich!? I’d feel galvanized too if I had a beautiful woman such Hannah Marin following me around wherever I compete…. anyways! Back to the action! The Woogieman keeps up the pressure and launches Shawn Sturgis to the corner with a strong Irish whip. He tries to follow up with a corner body splash but The Fresh Prince of Mid Air gets out of the way just in time!
Rich Russillo: Nobody’s home! And now The Woogieman is stunned! Shawn Sturgis has the upper hand now and tries to make the most of it with a flurry of kicks as The Woogieman is trapped in the corner! Sturgis then hits Woogieman with a Snapmare that leaves him stunned in the middle of the ring.
James Peters: TAG! Now it’s Zak Simmons turn as The Woogieman is still sitting in the middle of the ring, stunned after that Snapmare. Simmons doesn’t waste any time and quickly applies a headlock on The Woogieman.
Rich Russillo: Smart man, he is trying to slow down the pace of the action and cut the ring in half. Woogieman struggles as the big arm of Simmons is wrapped around his neck! How can he get out of this predicament?
James Peters: With the power of love of course! You really think he would tap out in front of Hannah Marin!? Hell no! The Woogieman feels the energy from the crowd and his manager and somehow manages to get up to his feet again. A hard elbow to the chest of Zak Simmons! Another one!
Rich Russillo: Zak Simmons has to let go of The Woogieman… Simmons charges in for a Clothesline but Woogieman ducks underneath, bounces off the ropes and… SAMOAN DROP from Zak Simmons! What an impact! He goes for the cover!
Rich Russillo: Kick out! It’s not over yet! We are just getting started! The Machine Zak Simmons made it very clear this week, the time for games is over! He is here tonight to win and it looks like he’s going to do just that. He picks up The Woogieman again, wraps his arms around him and hit him with a BELLY TO BELLY Suplex!
James Peters: The Woogieman bounces off the mat almost lifeless as Komatsu Ogawa doesn’t really look like he cares about what’s happening inside the ring! Apparently he truly meant it when said he didn’t care about Woogieman and this tag team match!
Rich Russillo: That might be true but Woogieman is in a world of trouble now as he really needs to get the tag and catch a breather! Zak Simmons and Shawn Sturgis did a perfect job in cutting the ring in half and isolating him. Zak Simmons is now stalking The Woogieman as he is slowly getting back up to his feet, using the ropes as leverage. Zak Simmons hits him with a well placed kick to the gut, then puts him in the Powerbomb position…
James Peters: The Woogieman is fighting back! Straight punches to the face of Simmons who just has to let go! The Woogieman lands on his feet… kick to the gut and SNAP DDT!!! He got all of that one!
Rich Russillo: It is now or never for The Woogieman, he has to make a tag right now! Komatsu Ogawa is not reaching for his partner but that doesn’t matter. The Woogieman is crawling towards his corner as Zak Simmons is still recovering! The Machine is stunned and doesn’t even know where he is!
James Peters: And Woogieman makes the tag! Komatsu Ogawa is now the legal man! The Serpent King isn’t wasting any time and he charges in, hitting Zak Simmons with a strong clothesline and another one! Zak Simmons is down and out!
Rich Russillo: Momentum is definitely on Ogawa’s side right now. Zak Simmons gets back to his feet… but Ogawa hits him with a straight jab to the face, so hard it makes him turn around, leaving his back exposed. Komatsu Ogawa gets down to his knees, put his head between Zak’s legs and powers him up for an Electric Chair! I can’t believe this!!! He somehow managed to lift Simmons on his neck!!! Komatsu just hit him with a double knee facebreaker on his way down! He calls that the Jörmungandr!!! Will it be enough?
James Peters: Shawn Sturgis breaks up the pin! And now The Woogieman gets inside the ring as well! All Hell is breaking loose as all four competitors are now inside the squared circle! Sturgis and The Woogieman are going at it in the corner, exchanging blows after blows and neither of them seems to be letting up!
Rich Russillo: Simmons just flattened Komatsu Ogawa with a Spinebuster! Meanwhile Woogieman has left Shawn Sturgis stunned in the corner… CLOTHESLINE FROM THE WOOGIEMAN!!! Sturgis is thrown out of the ring all the way to the floor and he almost crashed into Hannah Marin who got out of the way just in time.
James Peters: The referee tries to take back control of the situation as Simmons is still on the attack. Ogawa counters and slaps him on the cheek! ANGLE SLAM FROM THE WOOGIEMAN! He just hit Zak Simmons from behind with a devastating Angle Slam! Now the referee has had enough! He forces The Woogieman out of the ring! But the damage has already been done! Ogawa crawls on top of Zak… the cover…
Rich Russillo: NOOO! It’s not over yet! Ogawa is in disbelief, he doesn’t know what to do. Meanwhile The Woogieman is jumping on the apron, HE WANTS THE TAG! Komatsu Ogawa struggles back to his feet and tags him in!
James Peters: Shawn Sturgis is out like a light, Zak Simmons and The Woogieman are the legal men, while Komatsu Ogawa is recovering in his corner. The Woogieman is stalking Zak Simmons, he needs to end this now! Bring it home kid! The Woogieman is calling for it… is he going for the People’s Elbow?
Rich Russillo: The Woogieman bounces off the ropes… Nobody’s home! Zak Simmons managed to get out of the way! He gets back to his feet as The Woogieman is stunned. A stiff elbow knocks Komatsu Ogawa off the apron… The Woogieman charges in but Zak Simmons catches him with a kick to the stomach… ELITE ENDING!!! Zak Simmons just hit the Elite Ending on The Woogieman right in the middle of the ring! This has to be it! The cover…
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners, The Machine Zak Simmons and The Fresh Prince of Mid Air, Shawn Sturgis!
(Shawn Sturgis crawls back inside the ring and shakes Zak’s hand. Meanwhile the camera shows Hannah Marin looking on at ringside)
Rich Russillo: High drama! That match could have gone either way! Tag Team matches are always unpredictable, you never know what’s going to happen! But in the end, Zak Simmons managed to survive and put this match away with a sick Elite Ending.
James Peters: The Woogieman has nothing to be ashamed of. He put on one heck of a match. But now I’m afraid he has other problems to take care of, two problems to be precise. Hannah Marin and Jesse Barlow.
(We cut to a commercial for King of Elite, the upcoming FPV.)
(A promotional ad for King of Elite airs highlighting the past history between Jake Smith and Harlow Reichert. The two Showdown Elitists will meet once with the PURE Championship on the line as King of Elite comes to you from the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy. Check out King of Elite on February 8th, 2020, only on Free-Per-View!)
(When Voltage returns from break, Bella is once again seen. It’s time for the next match!)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Land of the Innocent” by Feathers begins to play and the crowd erupts in cheers.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY SIERRA BRADFORD… WEIGHING IN AT 121 POUNDS… FROM LONDON, ENGLAND… SHE IS ‘THE GUARDIAN ANGEL’ SARAH PRICE!!!
(Both members of SASS appear on the stage, all smiles, and full of energy. They wave to the crowd and begin making their way to the ring, slapping the hands of the fans along the way.)
Rich Russillo: These two just bring forth much needed positive energy here on Voltage! Sierra and Sarah have made it their mission to stand up to bullying and spread good vibes here on Sunday nights.
James Peters: Tonight, Sarah is facing perhaps the biggest bully of them all here on Voltage in Veena Adams, and I can’t wait to see how this match plays out. If Sarah can defeat Veena tonight, it would be her biggest win to date. Regardless of Veena’s record since her return, she is still an Adams, and beating someone with Veena’s pedigree is still a very big deal here in EAW.
(SASS slip into the ring and take their corner. Sierra and Sarah start talking amongst themselves as Sarah’s music fades out. It’s immediately replaced by “ME” by Taylor Swift ft. Brendon Urie. All the cheers for SASS immediately turn to jeers.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT… WEIGHING IN AT 125 POUNDS… FROM GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT… SHE IS VEENA ADAMS!!!
(The boos get even louder as Veena steps onto the stage. She looks completely disgusted by everything she is seeing and it’s plain as day she has absolutely no desire to be in Serbia.)
Rich Russillo: Considering Veena suffers from RBF, you never really know what kind of mood she’s in. She didn’t hide the fact she felt extremely put out that she had a match this week, and no doubt she is looking to start this year off in better shape than she ended the last one on.
James Peters: Things just haven’t gone Veena’s way on Voltage, but it’s hard to find any sympathy for her. Everything that’s happened to Veena on this brand is her own doing and no one else’s. She can get back on track tonight, start fresh for this year, but Sarah is no joke inside that ring. When people say this woman is a future champion, they mean it, because she has all the tools necessary to become a huge star in this business. She just needs to polish some things up, but that will come in time.
(Veena gets into the ring and glares at SASS. The referee asks both women if they’re ready and even though Sarah is, Veena is not. She brushes past the referee and screams at Bella to hand her a microphone.)
Rich Russillo: Listen to this crowd as Veena takes the microphone! They don’t want to hear her talk at all.
James Peters: I don’t blame them. I have never once come to Voltage thinking ‘Gee, I can’t wait to hear what Veena has to say.’
Rich Russillo: :wow:
(Veena looks around at the booing crowd and her eyes narrow.)
Veena Adams: BOOOO! BOOOO! FUCK YOU TOO.
(The really sends the crowd into an uproar. Sarah and Sierra look at one another and hide their smiles, but that doesn’t stop Sierra from motioning to the crowd and encouraging them to get louder.)
Veena Adams: You want to boo? Fine. I’ll wait. I have nothing but time.
(The spoiled princess folds her arms across her chest and just takes in the reaction of the crowd. When it becomes clear that Veena really is content to wait, Sarah rolls her eyes and asks for a microphone of her own.)
Sarah Price: Why the stalling tactics, Veena?
(Veena looks down her nose at Sarah, and the look on her face is nothing but pure hate.)
Veena Adams: I’m not sure why you are addressing me like you are familiar with me. It was just a few months ago that I was your boss here on Voltage, so if anything, you should really be addressing me as Miss Adams.
Sarah Price: We both know that’s never going to happen, and we both know that no one in this building wants to hear whatever garbage is about to come out of your mouth. We are both here to wrestle, and in my humble opinion, that is exactly what we should do.
Veena Adams: Well no one asked for your shitty opinion, and after the way these ungrateful fans have reacted towards me since I walked out here, I’m definitely not letting them see me wrestle tonight. This whole fucking brand is a joke and you know what? So are you. Your stupid fucking sunshine and rainbows attitude makes me sick to my stomach and it’s people like you that just destroy this business I love so much. It is a fucking insult that I have to be here tonight to wrestle someone like you. You are fucking trash and this is exactly the kind of thing I wanted to eliminate from Voltage. No doubt this is going to be a lop-sided match because what the fuck do you have in your arsenal that can really stand up to me? I was trained by legends and my lineage is second to none. I’m wrestling royalty and you are NOTHING, Sarah. NOTHING.
(Sarah looks over at Sierra and rolls her eyes.)
Sarah Price: The things you’re saying are things I’ve heard since I got here. You just manage to put a little more bark in your bite. But here is something you need to learn about me, Veena. Words are just that… words. I refuse to let them hurt me, and I’m going to make sure your words don’t hurt anyone else on Voltage.
(Veena can’t help herself. She laughs in Sarah’s face. Sarah looks back at Sierra, who gives her an affirmative nod.)
Sarah Price: You hate Voltage and you hate being here, so why don’t you just put your Voltage career on the line?
Rich Russillo and James Peters: WHAT?!
James Peters: Did I hear Sarah correctly?!
Rich Russillo: Judging from the look on Veena’s face, I would say that you did.
Veena Adams: Did you really just ask me to put my Voltage career on the line? What are you, stupid?
Sarah Price: You think I’m nothing and so far below you that I stand no chance in this match, so why not just put up or shut up? I really don’t like you and I want to beat you, but if I don’t, then that’s on me. I will have to live with what I failed to do, and you get to continue being your awful self here on Sunday nights.
Veena Adams: Those Beating Heart cunts couldn’t rid this brand of me because despite my setbacks, I’m still here. I’m still going. I still want to make this shitty, mismanaged brand a better place.
Sarah Price: With all due respect to the Beating Hearts of Voltage, none of them stepped up and challenged you for your spot on this brand.
(Sarah had a valid argument there. Even though the Beating Hearts of Voltage had gotten the better of Veena time and time again, and were the reasons Veena and Charlie no longer had any power on this brand, the one thing hadn’t done is run the Adams spawn off for good. Veena shook her head, chuckling to herself.)
Veena Adams: Alright little cunt, if that’s the game you want to play tonight, then so be it. But know this. After I beat you tonight, I’m going to make your life a living hell, and that goes for your partner too. The fact you had the fucking audacity to make such an absurd challenge to me goes to show how fucking stupid you really are.
(Sarah just shrugs and after an encouraging pat on the back, Sierra gets out of the ring. Veena laughs once again and turns her back, shedding her ring coat. The referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: Well this match has certainly tak-
Rich Russillo: SARAH PRICE JUST CAUGHT VEENA WITH ‘PLOT TWIST’!!! THE BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE JUST CAUGHT VEENA IN THE FACE AS SHE WAS TURNING AROUND TO GET SET FOR THE MATCH! SARAH WAS WAITING!!!
James Peters: SARAH QUICKLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! ‘HAPPY ENDING’ MOONSAULT! IT CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS! SARAH WITH THE COVER!
(The entire sold-out crowd starts to count.)
Crowd: OOONNNEEE… TTTTWWWWOOOO…. TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Rich Russillo: :damn:!!!!
James Peters: :damn:!!!!
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER! SARAH PRICE!!!!
(“Land of the Innocent” by Feathers begins to play and a jubilant Sarah rolls out of the ring and leaps into the arms of Sierra!)
Rich Russillo: SARAH PRICE JUST ENDED THE VOLTAGE CAREER OF VEENA ADAMS! AND IT TOOK ABOUT THIRTY SECONDS!!!!
James Peters: Shocked. Stunned. Floored. Holy shit! That just happened!
(Sarah and Sierra are jumping up and down in excitement, and every single person in the crowd is on their feet.)
Rich Russillo: This is by far the biggest moment of Sarah’s career and you can see it all over her face, James. Since she’s come to EAW, she’s made it her mission to get rid of bullies and stand up for the people who don’t necessarily have a voice. Tonight, she tricked Veena into accepting a challenge for her career and she made sure she was ready. Sarah Price really is a superhero.
James Peters: I don’t even know what to say other than this might be one of the best things I have ever seen in my life.
(Sierra and Sarah have made their way halfway up the ramp before they stop. They take a few seconds to enjoy the moment before Sierra takes Sarah’s hand and raises it in the air. The audience continues to shower them with cheers, and that’s when the camera cuts to inside the ring.)
(Veena Adams is sitting up, clutching her stomach from where the moonsault connected, and she seems a little confused as to what’s happened. The referee is explaining it to her, and that’s when it dawns on her.)
Veena Adams (Off Mic): No.
Referee (Off Mic): I’m sorry, Veena. She beat you fair and square.
Veena Adams (Off Mic): I wasn’t ready!
Referee (Off Mic): The bell had been rung.
Veena Adams (Off Mic): I WASN’T READY YOU DUMB FUCK! MY BACK WAS TURNED! I WAS TAKING OFF MY COAT!!!
(The referee shrugs and goes to walk out of the ring.)
Rich Russillo: VEENA JUST GRABBED THE REFEREE BY THE NECK AND SHE’S CHOKING HIM! SASS HIT THE RING AND VEENA IMMEDIATELY GETS THE HELL OUT OF THERE!
James Peters: Veena is on the ground now pitching an absolute fit! Her Voltage career is over and there’s nothing she can do about it! She is screaming obscenities and stomping her feet, and I have never seen her look more enraged than she does right now! :lupe:
Sarah Price (Off Mic): GOODBYE VEENA!
(All of a sudden a smirk crosses Sierra’s face. She calls for a microphone.)
Sierra Bradford: Na na na… na na na… hey hey hey goodbye…
Veena Adams (Off Mic): SHUT UP!
Sarah Price & Sierra Bradford: Na na na… na na na… hey hey hey goodbye…
Veena Adams (Off Mic): SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
Crowd: Na na na… na na na… hey hey hey goodbye…
Veena Adams (Off Mic): SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT THE FUCK UP!
(Tears of pure anger fill Veena’s eyes and she takes a look at everyone who is waving at her. She takes several deep breaths, covers her ears with her hands, and lets out a scream. The singing just gets louder and even Rich and James join in. Several EAW officials come out and they gently take the screaming and crying Veena to the back. Once she’s gone, SASS turn to one another and hug, and Voltage fades into a recap for Dynasty.)
(A recap of Friday Night Dynasty plays showing the EAW World Heavyweight Championship match between TLA and Osamu Arcichida. After an incredible back and forth match, TLA would hit the corkscrew 360 senton to put Osamu away and retain the championship. TLA’s King of Elite opponent, Drake King, would attack after the match and curb stomp TLA right onto the championship.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Captain Charisma’s office. The Voltage Commissioner is sitting behind his desk, looking at something on his phone when someone knocks on the door.)
Captain Charisma: Come in.
(The door opens and in walks Jalyn Garcia. The talented Elitist gives Captain Charisma a put out look as he walks into the office.)
Jalyn Garcia: You wanted to see me.
(It wasn’t a question. It was a statement and Jalyn’s voice was flat. Captain Charisma smirks and motions for Jalyn to take a seat. With a sigh, The Wildheart slumps into a chair and looks across at the commish.)
Captain Charisma: I did want to see you. The match you had a couple of weeks ago with Zak Simmons showcased just a fraction of what you are able to do, and I wanted to tell you congratulations for that win. It was well earned.
(Jalyn shrugs his shoulders.)
Jalyn Garcia: It’s Zak Simmons. Winning was a given.
Captain Charisma: That’s not necessarily true. Zak Simmons has done nothing but improve with each match he competes in, and at King of Elite he finds himself with a chance to dethrone Justin Windgate and win the New Breed Championship. He’s not a pushover.
(Jalyn rolls his eyes.)
Jalyn Garcia: Whatever. We’ve already had a conversation about what you feel I am capable of doing, anyway. All I did a couple of weeks ago is get in the ring and do my job. I redeemed myself from what happened against Rex, and now I’m just waiting to see what’s next.
Captain Charisma: Well that’s what I want to talk to you about, Jalyn. We do need to talk about what’s next. There is so much untapped potential in you and we both know you haven’t really gotten a chance to show it. You’ve had flashes of brilliance, and there have been some times where I’ve had to question your motivation. Mentally, I feel like you are in a better place now, and hopefully that means you are ready to cope with everything it takes to truly become an EAW Elitist.
(Jalyn can’t help but feel a little bit defensive.)
Jalyn Garcia: Well, I came in knowing this wasn’t going to be easy. I know it takes a lot of drive, determination, and motivation to be a top level Elitist. I know I’m talented, or else people wouldn’t spend their time on me. I can’t really help that some days are harder than others, but that is my own battle to fight. I didn’t get the job done against Rex, but I wasn’t gutted. It wasn’t the result I wanted, but I showed I can bounce back. I do have that competitive drive inside of me.
(Captain Charisma nods his head.)
Captain Charisma: I’m glad because you really are a future star, and it’s going to be up to you to see how far you go. Your fate rests on your own shoulders, and that’s not something to take lightly. All the greats seize the moments they’re given and make the most of them. Success isn’t guaranteed every single time, of course, but setbacks don’t have to define you.
Jalyn Garcia: I don’t really think I’ve let them define me.
(Captain Charisma keeps his expression neutral.)
Captain Charisma: I think you are a little guilty of being your own worst enemy.
(Jalyn doesn’t reply and for a few seconds, silence fills the office. Finally, Captain Charisma decides to break it.)
Captain Charisma: I want to give you a chance to showcase your untapped potential.
(Jalyn gives him a curious look.)
Jalyn Garcia: I’m listening.
Captain Charisma: Starr Stan, Jenny Punk, and myself have decided to put together a match featuring an Elitist from each of our brands to take place at Clash of Kingdoms. The winner of the match is going to get a future shot at the New Breed Championship. I’m sure you know more than most how important winning that championship can be.
(Jalyn definitely knew what winning the New Breed Championship could mean to someone’s career.)
Captain Charisma: That championship has been held by CM Bank$, Xavier Williams, Chris Elite, Rex McAllister, and of course Jamie O’Hara just to name a few. All of those men are in the Hall of Fame, or will one day be in the Hall of Fame. Not to mention that championship basically jump started the career of Raven Roberts. Of course, like all championships, the belt has had a few bad apples and total flops hold it as well. That doesn’t take away from the fact it’s a highly sought after championship and could very well take someone like you, someone who has the talent, right to the next level. There’s no doubt in my mind that you will be able to defeat whoever Dynasty and Showdown decide to place in that match, and whether Justin retains at King of Elite, or we crown a new champion in either Simmons or Sturgis, you have a great chance of winning your first championship here in EAW.
(Jalyn remains quiet, taking in Captain Charisma’s words, and just thinking about what this could possibly mean for him.)
Captain Charisma: You have to want this, though. I can give you the opportunity, but you’re the one who has to make the most of it. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. You need to remember that.
(To his credit, Jalyn refrained from rolling his eyes. No one would ever understand the battle he fought inside his own head on a daily basis. He knew that no other person could really match him inside the ring, but he was fully capable of beating himself and that was something he had to learn to overcome. He finally gets up, brushes his hair back again, and heads for the door.)
Captain Charisma: Are you going to be ready for Doha?
(Jalyn sighs as he reaches the door, his hand brushing the door handle.)
Jalyn Garcia: Yeah. I’ll be ready.
(Captain Charisma nods and lets Jalyn leave without saying another word. Voltage fades back to ringside.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons plays up to cheers as Terry Chambers makes his way out to the stage. He looks around with a determined look before rolling his shoulders and making his way to the ring shadow boxing along the way)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Detroit, Michigan… weighing in at 287 pounds… THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers has high hopes going into this matchup. He hopes to beat his opponent tonight then go onto face off for the EAW Championship at King of Elite, if he wins tonight this match could seemingly be a boost heading into this match.
James Peters: Just imagine the possibilities. But if time shows well like three weeks ago when Terry got the pin over Consuela, it might not be so different. He came for a fight tonight and he plans to take out one more Beating Heart tonight.
(Terry enters the ring and raises one arm in the air before looking around and giving a smirk before going to his corner and warming up as ‘Natural’ fades out. ‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes plays up as Consuela Rose Ava makes her way out to the ring. She hypes up the crowd as she gives a smile before raising her arms in the air and heading to the ring interacting with the crowd along the way)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… residing in Los Angeles, California… weighing in at 120 pounds… THE PERFECTIONIST… CONSUELA ROSE AVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Meanwhile on Consuela’s side she still feels like she let her partner, Andrea Valentine down three weeks ago in the tag match when she took the pin for her team. I think we know for sure she wants to make things right.
James Peters: She did say she’s not heading into this match with the intent to lose. She’s got a lot to prove and I’m sure she wants to put her words into action tonight without any mishaps going on.
(Consuela enters the ring and goes to the top rope raising two arms in the air before jumping down and beginning to warm up giving a glance at Terry as ‘We Appreciate Power’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: This match is underway as Consuela Rose Ava and Terry Chambers quickly lock up a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Consuela immediately relinquishes her side of the hold, ending it as she goes around his waist and pushes him away. Terry turns around as Consuela jumps up! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!
James Peters: Chambers is unfazed by it as Ava comes rebounding off the ropes for a second try! CHAMBERS TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK!! Terry now comes off the ropes, Ava jumps down, prompting Terry to leap over as he comes off the ropes once again for another shoulder block!
Rich Russillo: Chambers continues to ground his opponent here as he bounces off the ropes! AVA JUMPS UP AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A HURRICANRANA!! CHAMBERS QUICKLY RISES UP TO HIS FEET AND MEETS AVA IN THE MIDDLE!! HE GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!!
James Peters: Ava lands safely on the apron as Chambers charges into her! CHAMBERS GETS HIT WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED FOREARM! Ava sprints across the apron, ducks his arm and comes back in. CHAMBERS WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS AVA SPLATTERING ONTO RINGSIDE!! AVA WITH A HARD PLUMMET ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR AS CHAMBERS QUICKLY RUNS THE ROPES!! SUIIICIIIIDDEEE DIVE!!!
Rich Russillo: THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE GOES FLYING THROUGH THE ROPES AS HE GETS CONSUELA BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE. Chambers steps through the ropes, connects with a big boot across the head, leaps into the air and drives his body into the heart of Consuela Rose Ava with a senton. He shoots the half.
James Peters: Ava gets her shoulder up. Chambers immediately engages in a chinlock, looking to slow down the pace of this match and soften up his opponent. Ava however, still has plenty of fight left in her as she starts to fight out of the hold with bodyshots. Chambers takes her down with a snapmare, kicking back and LANDING A DEVASTATING KICK ACROSS THE BACK OF AVA!
Rich Russillo: Ava screeching in pain as Chambers grabs her hair, pushing her head forward and clearing the target zone as HE POUNDS THE BACK OF HER NECK WITH A KNIFE-EDGE CHOP! What a brutal display of strikes as Chambers stomps her body into the ground, then rebounding off the ropes and JUMPING UP!! ANOTHER SENTON!!
James Peters: NO!!!! CONSUELA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND REELS HIM INTO AN ARMBAR!! CHAMBERS COULDN’T GET THE MONKEY GRIP IN TO AVOID THE FULL INITIATION OF THE LOCK AS AVA CONTINUES TO UNRELENTLESSLY PULL HIS ARM BACK! BUT CHAMBERS QUICKLY GETS HIS FEET ON THE MAT AND DEADLIFTS HER OFF THE CANVAS!
Rich Russillo: CHAMBERS GOES FOR A POWERBOMB!! BUT CONSUELA ESCAPES THE HOLD AND DECKS HIM WITH A SCORPION KICK! Chambers is staggered on knee, opening up a window of opportunity for Consuela as she comes off the ropes and over the head of Chambers! FLIPPING DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER!! CHAMBERS CATCHES HER IN MID AIR, POPS HER UP INTO THE SKIES, AND SLAMS AVA DOWN WITH A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!
James Peters: KICKOUT! Chambers showing how powerful his arsenal is in this match as he grabs the chin of Ava and batters her chest with another heavy knife-edge chop. Ava trying to catch her breath, but Terry’s pack mentality refusing to let her recuperate as he hoists her up into a suplex hold! Ava drives her knee into the crown, evading the suplex as she stands on her feet.
Rich Russillo: Chambers charges in, BUT EATS A KNEE TO THE FACE, COURTESY OF CONSUELA ROSE AVA!! It seems Terry was going in for the legs, but Ava was one step ahead and met him halfway with the point of her knee. Chambers is groggy while Ava sprints towards him. He picks her up, sending her over the ropes and onto the apron. He turns around and gets blasted with a rope-assisted enziguri.
James Peters: Consuela putting her foot on the pedal here as she leaps onto the top rope and springboards! CHAMBERS CATCHES HER ONTO THE ROPES, GRABBING HER TIGHTS AND BRINGING HER INTO A SUPLEX!!! AVA GOES AROUND THE HEAD, PLACING HER KNEES ONTO HIS NECK AND BRINGING HIM DOWN INTO A BACKSTABBER!
Rich Russillo: Ava doesn’t elect to go for the cover and that’s understandable as she is feeling the effects of two-hundred and eighty pounds landing onto her knees. Ava fends off the leg pain as she is perched on the top turnbuckle! SHE SOARS!!! ELBOW DROP!! NO!!! CHAMBERS CATCHES HER ON THE GROUND AND GOES FOR THE CLUTCH!! BUT AVA QUICKLY MANEUVERS OUT OF THE HOLD AND PINS HIM DOWN!
ONE… TWO… T-
James Peters: HE ESCAPES!!! Both elitists get up to their feet and charge into each other. Ava is quick to get up as she spins around, connecting with a gut kick, following up with a kick to the face and A DROPKICK TO THE KNEES, GROUNDING THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE! Chambers is down on both knees as Ava jumps up! STOMPING BOTH HANDS SIMULTANEOUSLY AND SPINNING AROUND!! SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE FACE!
Rich Russillo: CHAMBERS DUCKS, AVOIDING THE KICK AS HE SHOVES AVA INTO THE ROPES!! AVA COMES REBOUNDING AND BLASTS HIM WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE JAW! CHAMBERS IS STUNNED AS AVA GOES AROUND HIS WAIST, WRAPPING HER ARMS AND ATTEMPTING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!! BUT CHAMBERS KEEPS HIS GROUND ON THE MAT!
James Peters: Terry slaps her wrist, releasing out of the hold and turning around! CHAMBERS DIVES IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE! AVA DUCKS THE ARM, SHOOTS UP AND DRILLS TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A JUMPING NECKBREAKER!! SHE GOES FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! Ava giving herself no time to fully recollect her thoughts as she impatiently bites her nails in the corner! SHE CHARGES INTO HIM!!! SHOTGUN DROPKICK!! NO!! CHAMBERS GRABS BOTH LEGS IN MID AIR AND GOES FOR A ONE-LEGGED BOSTON CRAB!! BUT AVA IS QUICK TO USE HER FREE LEG TO LAND UPWARD KICKS INTO TERRY!!! TERRY GRABS BOTH LEGS, GOES BACKWARD INTO THE GROUND AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO SEND AVA INTO THE CORNER!
James Peters: AVA GETS HER FEET ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE, LANDING SAFELY AS SHE TWIRLS OFF THE TURNBUCKLES!!! AND DRILLS CHAMBERS WITH A DEVASTATING TORNADO DDT!!! Chambers’ skull goes bouncing off the canvas and Ava is unable to get a cover in as he immediately rolled out of the ring.
Rich Russillo: Great in-ring awareness from the Barbaric Carnivore as he recuperates on the ringside floor. The fight that Terry Chambers brings to the squared circle is always a cross to bear for his opponents, but Consuela Rose Ava has done a magnificent job battling him. AVA LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPES!! SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY!
James Peters: NO!! Ava lands onto the apron, stopping mid flight as Chambers slid into the ring as she was about to step off. Chambers turns around while AVA SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES! CROSSBODY!!! CHAMBERS CATCHES HER IN MID AIR!! HE THROWS HER UP!! AVA ROLLS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND LANDS ONTO HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA RUNS PAST HIM AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! CHAMBERS TURNS AROUND!! AND ANNIHILATES CONSUELA WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!! AVA GOES INSIDE OUT AS CHAMBERS PICKS HER UP!!! AND LAUNCHES HER ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH A BUCKLE BOMB!!
James Peters: AVA SLIDES DOWN THE TURNBUCKLE, SEATED IN THE CORNER AS CHAMBERS COMES CHARGING IN!!! CLEAR THE DECK!!! CANNNONNNNNNBALLLLL!!! CHAMBERS ROLLS HER OVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! COVER!!
ONE.. TWO… T-
Rich Russillo: SHE GETS HER SHOULDER UP! Chambers continuing this match as he picks Ava up and places her onto the top turnbuckles. Terry steps onto the buckles, joining her as both competitors are the highest in the room! We’ve seen Chambers devastate people with top-rope maneuvers before, and he may have something in store for Ava.
James Peters: However, Ava repeatedly drives her elbow into his head, slowing him down. Chambers is staggered on the top turnbuckle as AVA LEAPS AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES!!! SHE BRINGS CHAMBERS DOWN WITH HIM!! SPANIIIIISHHHHHH FLYY!!!! THREE HUNDRED POUND SPANISH FLY INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! I’M SURPRISED THAT DIDN’T BREAK THE RING!! COVER!!
ONE… TWO… THR-
Rich Russillo: CHAMBERS POPS HIS SHOULDER UP OFF THE CANVAS!!! AVA CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! SHE’S IN DISBELIEF!!! AVA WITH A SINISTER LOOK ON HER FACE AS CHAMBERS IS KNEELING!! ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE CHEST!! AND ANOTHER ONE!! ANOTHER ONE!!!
James Peters: AVA REPEATEDLY POUNDING THE CHEST OF CHAMBERS WITH ROUNDHOUSE KICKS BEFORE GOING FOR THE LAST ONE!! CHAMBERS DUCKS AND CLOCKS CONSUELA WITH A HEADBUTT!! AVA IS DOWN AND OUT!!! AVA IS OUT ON THE GROUND AS CHAMBERS PICKS HER UP!!! HE’S GOING FOR IT!!! THE T-5!!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT AVA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET!!! AND CONNECTS WITH THE FINAL ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! AVA GOES BACK INTO THE CORNER!! SHE REBOUNDS OFF!! THIS IS IT!! LA RADILLA DE LA MUERTE!!! NO!!! CHAMBERS CATCHES HER INTO THE POWERBOMB!! HE CARRIES HER ACROSS THE RING!! BUCKLE BOMB!!!
James Peters: AVA COMES OFF THE BUCKLES!!! AND DRIVES HER KNEE INTO THE NOSE OF CHAMBERS!!! WHAT A RESPONSE AS BOTH INDIVIDUALS ARE DOWN AND OUT!! WHAT A MATCH THIS HAS BEEN!! BOTH CHAMBERS AND AVA HAVE GAVE IT ALL SO FAR IN THIS MATCH AND THIS A PREVIEW OF WHAT’S TO COME FOR VALENTINE AND GRIER!
Rich Russillo: Both elitists are now on their feet! FOREARM FROM AVA!!! CHAMBERS RESPONDS WITH A SLAP TO THE CHEST!! AVA TAKEN ABACK BY THAT SLAP AS CHAMBERS COMES OFF THE ROPES! AVA WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW!!! AVA COMES OFF THE ROPES!!! CHAMBERS RUSHES IN AGAIN AND DECIMATES AVA WITH YET ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! AVA IS DOWN AS CHAMBERS NOW BEGINS TO GINGERLY CLIMB THE TURNBUCKLES!
James Peters: Ava comes shooting off the canvas and launches herself onto the top turnbuckle with Chambers. Ava refuses to be shut down as she continues to fend off the two-hundred and eighty pound elitist. She was able to ground him with a super spanish fly a few moments ago as Chambers peppers her with headbutts over and over again.
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers slowly places her head between his legs… Consuela is at bay on the top turnbuckle while Chambers leans over and wrapped his arms around her waist!! HE ROLLS OVER HER SHOULDERS AND OVERTURNS CONSUELLAAA!!! CANNNNADDDIANNNNN DESTROYYYERRRR!!!!!
James Peters: HOLY SHIT!!! DON’T ADJUST YOUR SCREEN, TERRY CHAMBERS JUST DID A CANADIAN DESTROYER!! Imagine NEARLY THREE-HUNDRED POUNDS OF MASS FORCING THE CROWN OF YOUR SKULL INTO THE CANVAS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! CONSUELA JUST FELT THAT AT FIRST HAND AND SHE MAY BE OUT!
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers is not only a monstrous, technical behemoth, he has what it takes to step out of his box and implement things that an individual his size shouldn’t be able to do! Both individuals have been laid out for a long time now. Who will be the first to get up!? WHO THE!?!?
( Lars Grier comes sprinting down the ramp with his wrestling attire as he slides into the ring. He completely ignores the referee as he stands in the center of the ring, possibly contemplating on what he is going to do to both lifeless Elitists. )
James Peters: Lars Grier is standing in the middle of the squared circle and this match is still going on. Grier looking down on both Chambers and Ava as the referee warns him and yells at him to get out immediately!! Grier has been stirring the pot recently with Consuela Rose Ava, but Grier knows that he doesn’t want to get on the bad side with the dangerous Terry Chambers.
Rich Russillo: GRIER LANDS A STOMP ONTO AVA!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner by disqualification, CONSUELLLA ROSSSEEEE AVVAA!!!
Rich Russillo: LARS GRIER NOW LAYING WASTE TO THE EXHAUSTED CONSUELA ROSE AVA!! GRIER JUST SPOILED FROM WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN AN INSTANT CLASSIC, A POSSIBLE MATCH OF THE YEAR, AND I DON’T THINK HE GIVES A FLYING FUCK ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES THIS IMPOSES ONTO HIM!
( While Lars Grier continues to stomp Consuela Rose Ava in the corner, Terry Chamber rises from the ground. The camera angle faces the front of Grier as Chambers rises up to his feet from behind with a menacing look on his face. )
James Peters: LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS!! TERRY IS ATTEMPTING TO LOCK THE COQUINA CLUTCH IN BUT GRIER QUICKLY ESCAPES, SLIDING OUT OF THE RING AND RETREATING UP THE RAMP. GRIER EVADING WHAT WOULD HAVE RESULTED HIM ASLEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS HE RETREATS!
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers standing in the ring, staring down Lars Grier as the referee checks up on Consuela Rose Ava. We hope to see these two go hold-for-hold in the future as what we saw in that match before the interference was amazing.
(An evil look has crossed the face of Lars Grier and there’s no doubt he’s sent his message to Consuela loud and clear tonight. He is coming for her 24/7 contract and he’s going to be almost impossible to stop.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for the ‘True Crime All The Time’ podcast. Available on Spotify, Pandora, and the Apple podcast app. The episode about the Chicago Ripper Crew is particularly disturbing.)
(Voltage once again returns from commercial break and cuts backstage where Sofia Clarke is standing by. She has a huge smile on her face as she starts speaking into the camera.)
Sofia Clarke: Last night on Showdown, Universal Women’s Champion, Raven Roberts, scored a huge victory over one-half of The ILLIONAIRES in Ahren Fournier. Tonight, her tag team partner, Rex McAllister, looks to do the same thing against the other ILLIONAIRE, Chris Elite. Joining me right now is Rex McAllister.
(The camera shot widens and Rex walks into the scene. Sofia grins at him.)
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for joining me tonight, Rex. How confident are you as you head into this match against Chris?
(A smirk crosses Rex’s face.)
Rex McAllister: I’m no stranger to Chris Elite at this point and I know exactly what he’s going to bring to the table. For as talented as he is, and I’m not going to deny that, he never deviates from the norm. What works for him against other Elitists isn’t going to work for him against this Elitist, and I think it’s fair to assume this match is only going to end in my favor. I’ll be honest with you, Sofia. When The ILLIONAIRES struck a couple of weeks ago and cost me my spot in the King of Elite tournament, I was a bit frustrated. The same thing continues to happen every time I find myself with a chance to get back to where I want to be, and I haven’t shied away from letting my goal be known to everyone. I suspect I painted the target on my back early on when I said from the very beginning that the main event of Pain for Pride is exactly where I plan on being at the end of this season. I don’t like having question marks when it comes to my ability to win the big one on the biggest stage of them all, and that’s not something I’m going to let go of. Chris and Ahren struck first, and I’m pissed at myself for not seeing it coming, but knocking their egos down a peg last week was a small consolation prize. I know it irritates them both to no end that Ryan Wilson and The Ringmaster have bragging rights over them because they are ego-driven individuals with very little to cling too other than what happens inside the ring. They haven’t been the same team since getting slapped back down to Earth by Heavenly Hell and I think Raven and I are going to have a lot of fun humbling them some more come King of Elite.
Sofia Clarke: I’m sure you’re aware of this, Rex, but in case our viewers at home aren’t, winning at King of Elite and securing Fire and Ice a future shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships will give you the opportunity to go for something that’s rarely accomplished here in EAW and that’s a Grand Slam Championship.
(Rex takes a moment to think about that. For everything he’s done in his career so far, with more on the horizon, no doubt, winning the Grand Slam would be a huge feather in his cap.)
Rex McAllister: This Elitist is definitely aware of that, and he’s also aware that it would get Raven closer to that as well. She’s the first female in this company to have that kind of opportunity with being a former New Breed Champion and the current Universal Women’s Championship. Believe me, both of us know what winning the Unified Tag Team Championships could mean for us. We are both driven by the thrill of competition and the recognition that comes with being the absolute best in the world at our craft. We want those championships and Raven is the only person I want to share them with. Our competition at King of Elite don’t have a clue of what Fire and Ice are capable of together as a team. Ahren made it perfectly clear that he doesn’t know the history the two of us have as a team. That’s no surprise there since he’s always been one of the most uneducated wrestlers to ever come into this company. Raven and I were well on our way to meeting the Jaded Hearts in the Grand Prix finals a year ago, but Impact felt the need to stick his nose in our business and take that chance away from us. Raven and I have both waited a long time to get back into the ring together, and even though we’re both busy with our singles careers, there is no time like the present. Those championships need to be with a team this company can actually depend on, and that’s not meant to be disrespectful towards Heavenly Hell. They have done their best with those championships despite the lack of competition, but Raven and I plan on beating The ILLIONAIRES and then taking those belts for ourselves and elevating them.
Sofia Clarke: I think it’s safe to say both ILLIONAIRES know what Raven and yourself are capable of now.
Rex McAllister: There never should have been any doubts, and it was inevitable that this match would happen. It’s a money match and at the end of the day, EAW is a billion dollar business. I’m always up for whatever this company throws at me and at King of Elite, Raven and myself are going to end The ILLIONAIRES for good and go on to become the Unified Tag Team Champions.
Sofia Clarke: :wow: Good luck tonight, Rex.
Rex McAllister: See you soon.
(Rex nods and heads off. The camera follows him as he rounds the corner and nearly bumps into his fiancee. Raven looks a bit shell-shocked and she’s holding her phone. Rex’s entire demeanor immediately changes.)
Rex McAllister: Ray… what’s wrong?
(Raven looks up at him and she frowns, clearly not sure where to even begin. Rex’s hands touch her shoulders and he gives them a gentle squeeze.)
Raven Roberts: I.. I.. I really don’t even know where to begin.
Rex McAllister: Just start at the beginning.
(Raven takes a deep breath and that’s when her face falls. Rex knows whatever she’s about to tell him is something he doesn’t want to hear, and he takes Raven in his arms, pulling her close. He holds her for a moment, just long enough for Raven to gather herself and finally she lets out a defeated sigh.)
Raven Roberts: It’s the wedding venue. It’s gone.
Rex McAllister: Gone? What do you mean it’s gone?
Raven Roberts: There was a fire last night and nothing could be saved. No one was hurt, thankfully. It was empty and unused, but it’s gone and with the wedding coming up in a couple of months it’s not going to be rebuilt in time. They don’t even know if they’re going to rebuild it at all. All the flowers, the food, the reception, travel arrangements… everything is obsolete now. Because we have no fucking venue.
(Rex doesn’t reply right away because he’s not really sure what to say. They had taken their time picking the perfect location for their wedding and their invitations had been sent out. The guests and the wedding party had already had their travel arrangements made, and everything was pretty much set in stone for the future Mr. and Mrs. Rex McAllister. It was a punch to the gut. Raven’s crestfallen face was like a punch to the gut for Rex. He hated seeing her upset for any reason, but this one hurt his heart as well. They were ready to be married and Rex knew one thing they would both agree on is that they didn’t want to wait.)
Raven Roberts: I realize this isn’t exactly the best time to find this out…
Rex McAllister: There never would have been a good time for this.
Raven Roberts: I know, but you have a match and…
(Rex gently cut her off.)
Rex McAllister: And nothing. We’ll figure something out, Ray. I promise you that. Let’s just get through the rest of the show, and tonight when we get back to the hotel, we’ll figure out a back up plan. Okay?
(Raven nods and Rex kisses the top of her head. Together they would weather this storm, and still have the wedding of their dreams.)
(Voltage cuts back to ringside and the camera focuses in on the broadcast booth. Shortfuse PAKA is sitting to the left of Rich, and he is smirking.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, we are being joined by Shortfuse PAKA for this next match. Welcome to the booth, PAKA.
Shortfuse PAKA: HA! I just want to watch Korey get his ass beat!
(The camera cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…
(Thunderstruck by AC/DC lights this place up.)
Bella Braxton: Weighing in at 170 pounds… from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma… he is The Aerial Wonder…
Shortfuse PAKA: And also in your Direct Messages. Ha!
Bella Braxton: KOOOOREEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY GAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNES!
(Korey Gaines runs out onto the stage, hands up in the air for the crowd! He checks the watch that’s not on his wrist and points to the ring because IT’S TIME! And then he takes off running down the ramp and leaps up through the ropes and into the ring! He motions to the crowd again before turning to hang over the ropes and make faces at Shortfuse PAKA.)
James Peters: Trouble between Korey Gaines and Shortfuse PAKA has been ongoing for weeks now.
Shortfuse PAKA: Started by Korey Gaines.
(Gaines backs off to a corner as his music fades.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent…
(The Path by Senses Fail strikes a chord through the arena.)
Rich Russillo: And this poor guy has been trapped in the middle of it!
James Peters: Poor guy?! Jesse Barlow is no saint, you know. I don’t think anyone is feeling sorry for him.
Bella Braxton: Weighing in at 210 pounds … from Hoboken, New Jersey… here is “The Virtuous” JEEEESSSSSSEEEEEEE BAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRLOOOOOOOOOOOOW!
(Jesse Barlow backs out onto the stage and spins around to look at the ramp. He looks to the side where Hannah Marin usually is and scoffs before focusing on his walk down the ramp towards the ring.)
Shortfuse PAKA: All wars need casualties.
James Peters: This is not war. It’s wrestling.
Rich Russillo: EAW is WAR!
Shortfuse PAKA: And the war ends when I end Korey Gaines.
(Jesse Barlow climbs into the ring and eyes Korey Gaines for a moment before backing immediately towards one of the corners while his music fades sooner than usual. It’s not the same without Hannah.)
(Ding Ding Ding!)
James Peters: And there’s the bell!
Rich Russillo: Both men coming out of the gate swinging early on here! Right dead in the center of the ring and they are trading blows back and forth! Barlow! Gaines! Barlow! Gaines! Barlow! Gaines!
Shortfuse PAKA: Meh. Foolishness.
James Peters: Barlow getting the upper hand here and stumbling Gaines back with a series of quick right hands! Gaines can’t quite keep his footing but he doesn’t need to because Barlow boots him right in the gut! Gaines is doubled over and Barlow sends him down to the mat with an elbow to the back of the neck!
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow is not having any of Korey’s nonsense tonight.
Shortfuse PAKA: A lesson we all should take from Jesse Barlow. The foolishness of Korey Gaines should be extinguished, not only from EAW but from society as a whole. What exactly does a ‘dab’ represent in any context?
James Peters: Korey’s recovering fairly quickly but Barlow’s headed back towards him to keep his momentum going. Korey Gaines catching Barlow with a swift dropkick! Barlow hits the mat and Korey Gaines is feeling it already! Looks like that momentum Barlow wanted to hold onto is already switching hands!
Rich Russillo: Don’t count Barlow out just yet. It was one move, JP!
Shortfuse PAKA: A poor excuse for a dropkick. His form was as terrible as his attitude is. This is getting tiresome to watch.
Rich Russillo: We’ve got a lot of match left, PAKA-chu!
Shortfuse PAKA: (grunts)
Rich Russillo: Right. We’ve got a lot of match left, PAKA! And Barlow’s back on his feet after Korey’s desperate dropkick! Barlow with the clothesline but Gaines ducks! Gaines with a kick but Barlow sidesteps! Barlow goes for a sweep but Gaines is leaping over that leg with relative ease! Gaines aims a knee for Barlow’s skull but Barlow’s too quick, rolling out of the way! Both men showing their speed and agility here tonight, folks!
James Peters: What a stalemate that last exchange was.
Shortfuse PAKA: It was indeed stale, mate. HA!
James Peters & Rich Russillo: … alright then.
James Peters: Neither man giving any quarter but that might be about to change here as Barlow has doubled Gaines over with a kick to the gut. Barlow has Gaines in a headlock and right now Gaines is struggling to get himself free. Barlow increasing the pressure and keeping Gaines away from the ropes! Barlow looking to keep Gaines from breaking free but Gaines is not about to let this match slip through his fingers this early!
Rich Russillo: Korey Gaines using those strong right hands we saw earlier to fight his way out of this hold! A few stiff body shots to Barlow’s gut and Barlow’s grip loosens. Gaines peels himself out and flips himself up onto Barlow’s shoulders… HURRICANRANA! Korey Gaines showing his ass right now with a little stank on it!
Shortfuse PAKA: I have seen better hurricanranas from Provencal’s children.
James Peters: That may be true, I’m sure it’s not, but regardless, Korey Gaines just took control of this match! And he’s about to capitalize! Gaines wasting no time, pulling Barlow up to his feet. Barlow is wobbly and Gaines lays him out with a discus elbow smash! Barlow’s face caught all of that one and The Aerial Wonder is standing tall!
Shortfuse PAKA: His height is lacking. I despise your attempt to make Korey Gaines seem taller than he truly is. Shame upon you and your family, James Peters. Shame.
James Peters: Uh.
Rich Russillo: There’s no shame in Korey’s game right now, that’s for sure! He’s got Barlow right where he wants him! Gaines is measuring as Barlow gets to his feet. Barlow turns around to get his bearings but Korey Gaines is right there! Dropsault! DROPSAULT ON JESSE BARLOW! The Virtuous Jesse Barlow is sent reeling into the ropes and Korey Gaines has to be feeling like a million bucks right now!
Shortfuse PAKA: I believe you have spoken incorrectly, Rich Russillo.
Rich Russillo: What?
Shortfuse PAKA: You clearly meant to say that Korey Gaines has to be feeling like a million sucks. Because he sucks. You see?
James Peters: Boo. BOO.
Shortfuse PAKA: Ha!
Rich Russillo: I can’t even right now. I need a minute after that one. JP?
James Peters: I got you, partner. Barlow’s tied up in those ropes and Korey Gaines is laying on the pressure. He’s even taken a moment to give our guest commentator, Shortfuse PAKA, a wink! Now Gaines is rushing Barlow… with a Suicide Spear! What in the hell is a Suicide Spear?! Korey Gaines with just suicide dove through Jesse Barlow and now both men are down on the outside! What a move!
Shortfuse PAKA: I am not impressed.
Rich Russillo: Then you need to have your head examined because that was fucking amazing. And it looks like Gaines is the first to his feet. Jesse Barlow is struggling to get up, using the barricade to pull himself up. Gaines moves in to capitalize but Barlow recovers quick enough to catch Gaines in the eyes! Gaines can’t see and Barlow grabs Gaines by the head and slams his face into the barricade! Gaines goes down and Jesse Barlow backs off to the ring to recover.
James Peters: Smart move by Jesse Barlow here. Slowing down that Gaines momentum and giving himself an opportunity to get this match back in hand. For all of Barlow’s misguidedness, he’s a damn good operator in that squared circle.
Rich Russillo: Agreed.
Shortfuse PAKA: He is better than Korey Gaines, at least.
James Peters: Korey Gaines has recovered and is hopping up onto the apron. Barlow’s right there to lay into him with a forearm smash! Gaines wobbles but hangs onto the ropes! Barlow with another forearm smash! Gaines wobbles again but this time Barlow grabs Gaines around the head, hoists him up and brings him back into the ring with an incredible suplex!
Rich Russillo: There’s the Jesse Barlow I know and love!
James Peters: Rich, your man crush is showing.
Rich Russillo: Don’t force your gender conformity onto my unconditional affection for Jesse Barlow.
James Peters: So you don’t want to have his babies.
Rich Russillo: I didn’t say that…
Shortfuse PAKA: Your banter is amusing to me. You will continue after I mention that Korey Gaines is having his head crushed by the boots of Jesse Barlow.
James Peters: Good eye, PAKA! Jesse Barlow going to town on Korey Gaines right now. Those vicious stomps driving Korey’s head into the mat! Barlow backing off now and stalking the slow rising body of Korey Gaines. Barlow could be looking to put this match away right here.
Shortfuse PAKA: I would enjoy that very much.
Rich Russillo: Gaines is up but Barlow takes Korey’s knee out with a quick kick! Gaines goes down and Barlow hits the ropes. Curb Stom– NO! NO! KOREY GAINES WITH A JUMPING KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE OF JESSE BARLOW! These two men just had a mid-air collision that you had to see to believe! Holy shit!
James Peters: Both men are down on the mat right now but it looks like Korey Gaines is the first to stir. I think Jesse Barlow got all of that knee. Barlow might be completely out. Gaines crawls over to Barlow’s body and lays an arm across him. The official drops down for the count.
Rich Russillo: And Barlow gets the shoulder up.
Shortfuse PAKA: Ha! It is clear that Jesse Barlow is the superior competitor of these two. Jesse Barlow has kicked out of yet another puny attack from the puny Korey Gaines.
Rich Russillo: Barlow and Gaines both on their feet again. Barlow looking to take this match over from Gaines right here. Barlow with the snapmare and he follows it up with a dropkick to the back of Korey’s head! Korey falls forward and down onto the mat. Barlow scooping Gaines up by the waist and… GERMAN SUPLEX!
James Peters: Gaines is down and Barlow is starting to feel himself this time around. Barlow hits that top turnbuckle and motions for Korey to get back to his feet. Gaines has no clue where he is but he’s up! Barlow… FLYING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Jesse Barlow proving that Korey Gaines is not the only one that can fly!
Shortfuse PAKA: Fact. Peter Pan can also fly. Also, better than Korey Gaines.
Rich Russillo: Barlow looking to put this one away here with the pin! Barlow hooks the leg and there’s the ref!
James Peters: Kickout! By Korey Gaines!
Shortfuse PAKA: False. The referee was counting extremely slow. Korey Gaines is too weak to kick out of a pin attempt from Jesse Barlow.
Rich Russillo: Barlow staying in control of the match now. He picks up Gaines! Looks like he’s going for a backbreaker! This could really put a hurt on Gaines– Wait! No! Korey Gaines with the reversal! FRANKENSTEINER! FRANKENSTEINER ON JESSE BARLOW!
James Peters: Korey Gaines is not done! He’s got Barlow pinned to the mat and he’s wailing on him with a series of punches! Gaines climbs off Barlow and backs up to the ropes. Barlow gets up to his feet! Barlow rushing Gaines! Gaines on the defensive and stumbles Barlow with a kick to the shin!
Shortfuse PAKA: No. Do not start this! Listen to me! Do not!
Rich Russillo: Korey Gaines is feeling it and so is this crowd! Korey Gaines with another kick to the leg of Jesse Barlow!
James Peters: Gaines smiling as the crowd cheers this move on!
Crowd: KICK! KICK! KICK!
Rich Russillo: Barlow hits his knees!
Shortfuse PAKA: Get up, Jesse Barlow! Get up!
Rich Russillo: Korey’s calling for it!
Shortfuse PAKA: Oh no…
James Peters: Oh yes! SUPERKICK PARTY! Korey Gaines’ boot connects with Jesse Barlow’s face and I swear I heard something snap! Barlow hits the mat! If Korey Gaines wants to put this one away he better cover Barlow right now!
Rich Russillo: No! Korey Gaines is headed for the corner! He’s heading to the top rope!
James Peters: And there goes Shortfuse PAKA! This is about to get ugly folks! I can feel it in my bones.
Rich Russillo: You might wanna’ get that checked out. That’s weird as shit.
James Peters: PAKA is up on the apron now and it looks like he’s headed for Gaines! Gaines not having it and drops down from the top rope back into the ring. Gaines meets PAKA at the ropes and these two are right in each other’s face! No love lost between Korey Gaines and Shortfuse PAKA tonight!
Rich Russillo: Oh, here we go. Looks like the official is going to break things up! The referee trying to keep this match under control here. Gaines and PAKA trying to get at each other but the official is forcing himself between them! Gaines jumps at PAKA and PAKA flinches! He looks pissed now!
James Peters: OH NO! PAKA JUST LAID THE OFFICIAL OUT WITH A PALM STRIKE! THE REFEREE IS DOWN! OH SHIT! WHAT?!
Rich Russillo: PROVENCAL! PROVENCAL’S IN THE RING! THAT SLIPPERY BASTARD WAS WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT! BOOBY TRAP! BOOBY TRAP ON KOREY GAINES! I KNEW PROVENCAL WAS A SON OF A BITCH!
James Peters: And there he goes! Provencal rolls out of the ring and hightailing it up the ramp! This is fucked up! No! I can’t believe this!
Rich Russillo: Barlow gets back to his feet and he spots Gaines on the mat. He sees PAKA hopping off the apron and doesn’t give a shit, hitting the turnbuckle and hopping up to the top rope… I think we’re about to feel it!
James Peters: Feel what?
Rich Russillo: FEAR OF GOD! JESSE BARLOW WITH THE 650 SPLASH! This one is OVER! Make the cover, Jesse!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow covers and the referee struggles to make the count…
(DING DING DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here’s your winner… JESSSEEEEE BAAAARRRLLLLOOOOOOOWWWWW!
James Peters: Robbed. Korey Gaines was robbed here tonight.
Rich Russillo: Or, and hear me out on this one, Jesse Barlow was just the better man tonight. And every night. That I see him. In my dreams.
James Peters: … Nope. No thank you.
(Jesse celebrates his victory while Provencal and PAKA head up the ramp, clearly pleased they managed to get one up on Korey. Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial for ‘Golden Ghosts’ starring Betty White and the ghosts of Beatrice Arthur, Estelle Getty, and Rue McClanahan. This Fall on TVLand.)
(Post commercial, we return to Voltage and right there in the backstage area. Jesse Barlow comes from the stage. He’s holding his side a bit but all pain he was feeling is gone when he sees who’s waiting for him.)
(It’s Hannah Marin.)
Hannah Marin: Jesse!
(Hannah practically leaps at Jesse and throws her arms around him. She can’t let him go even though he’s just had a brutal match against Korey Gaines.)
Hannah Marin: I can’t take being away from you. It was too long. Brutal. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t function…
Jesse Barlow: Shhhh. My child, everything is fine now. You have been returned and all is well. There shall be nothing else that comes between us.
(The affectionate hugging is all from Hannah Marin’s side but that is all there ever needs to be. Jesse Barlow’s words are his affection. Hannah revels in every word and breath from Jesse’s lips. It’s clear he is happy to see her as well. Jesse tucks a strand of blonde hair behind Hannah’s ear and gives him a smile. Hannah beams and finally gets to the question she wants to ask.)
Hannah Marin: What was in the envelope?
(Jesse has been waiting to share this news with Hannah because it was her sacrifice that got the information for him.)
Jesse Barlow: The Woogieman delivered as he said he would. The envelope contained crucial information about both of my parents. My mother was a drug addict and my father… he abandoned her.
(Hannah’s face during this story is going through a range of emotions. It’s as if she’s watching the man in her life relive the tragedies of his past. She is.)
Jesse Barlow: My mother, she is in Kansas. Somewhere. And that was it. Nothing else about my father. That’s all the information I was given.
Hannah Marin: That’s it? There has to be more. What are we going to do, Jesse? What’s our next move?
Jesse Barlow: Honestly? I’m at a bit of a loss. I’m unsure of what to do with this new information. I assumed I would never have any. But now… I think I am most curious about my father. He abandoned my mother. He abandoned me. I would like to know more.
Jesse Barlow & Hannah Marin: ?!
(The reunited duo turn to see that The Woogieman is standing there in all of his Woogie Glory. He’s wearing another one of the most expensive silk shirts that money can’t buy, his Woogie Shades and is holding a peach… which is missing a huge chunk.)
Jesse Barlow: Uh. Can we hel–
(The Woogieman raises a finger in the face of Jesse Barlow. Barlow narrows his eyes at the finger.)
The Woogieman: Shhhhh. Let The Woogieman enjoy his peach.
(There’s a long and awkward non-silence as The Woogieman consumes the peach right there in front of Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin. The Woogieman’s finger never leaves the position that seems to be holding Barlow’s attitude hostage. Finally, The Woogieman is finished and drops his finger.)
The Woogieman: The Woogieman is here for his property.
Jesse Barlow: What?! Nobody here got anything of yours, Woogie…
(The Woogieman pulls his shades down a bit and just LOOKS in Hannah’s direction.)
Hannah Marin: No! Not again! I don’t want to go!
(Hannah clings harder to Jesse’s side.)
Jesse Barlow: She’s done. We’re done with this Woogie. Move along.
The Woogieman: The Woogieman would beg to differ but The Woogieman doesn’t beg. Instead, The Woogieman will simply say this and be on his way. If Hannah does not leave with The Woogieman then The Woogieman will have no choice but to not give you, Orphan Boy, the next piece of information that he has about your truly embarrassing family issues. The Woogieman will give you a moment to realize your mistake and correct it.
Jesse Barlow: No. You can just tell me what you know. What information do you have now?
The Woogieman: The Woogieman does not negotiate with orphan terrorists. Hannah?
(Hannah reluctantly peels herself off Jesse’s side. Jesse looks at her but doesn’t make a move to stop her.)
Hannah Marin: I hate this, Jesse. I hate being away from you. I can’t stand it. But he’s the only one that knows anything about your parents. And you need to know. We need to know.
Jesse Barlow: Hannah. Don’t. I’ll find another way.
Hannah Marin: I’m doing this for you, Jesse.
(Hannah tears herself away from Jesse and stands at The Woogieman’s side. Her head down.)
The Woogieman: The Woogieman will deliver new information to you next week. Congratulations, your deal with The Woogieman continues.
(The Woogieman turns and waits for Hannah to link her arm in his before the two of them walk away. Hannah turns to look back at Jesse but The Woogieman snaps his fingers and she turns her eyes back forward. Jesse is left absolutely seething at this, clearly frustrated over this turn of events and the lack of information he’s been left with.)
Jesse Barlow: If only I wanted to go down that road again…
(Jesse is referring to his old life, his old resources, and how could change things with a snap of his fingers. He knows he doesn’t want to go back down that road though and he clenches his fists to the side. The camera fades away as Jesse is left pondering what the hell else The Woogieman could possibly have in store for him.)
(James and Rich are head talking in the background as the camera pans around the sold-out arena.)
James Peters: Welcome back! This shit with Woogie, Jesse, and Hannah just keeps getting more bizarre. Anyways, coming up next, a thrilling singles bout between Joy Cassidy and Sierra Bradford! I absolutely cannot wait for this one, both of these young women have set out on a mission to flip EAW on its head, I have no doubt they’re going to tear the house down tonight!
Rich Rusillo: Agreed, James. We are in for quite an interesting collision tonight, one woman in Sierra Bradford, who only wants to compete, and Joy Cassidy, who exudes confidence. However, both are elite level athletes and high caliber superstars! I cannot wait to see what they both bring to the table tonight!
James Peters: Fortunately, the wait is over! Let’s dive right into it!
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake begins to play, as Sierra Bradford enters the arena to quite the positive reception.)
Bella Braxton: LADIIIEEESSS ANDDDDD GENTLEMANNNNNN…THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLEEESSSSS MATCHHH, SCHEDULED FOR ONEEEEE FALLLL!!! INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF SAN JOSSSEEEE, CALIIFORRRNIAAAAAA….WEIGHING IN AT 141lbs…THEEEE BULLETTTTT CHICKKKK….SIEEERRRAAAAAA BRADDDFORRRDDDDD!!!!
(Crowd cheer in support of Sierra Bradford who walks out with her tag team partner, Sarah Price. Both women are still on cloud nine from ending Veena’s time on Voltage earlier in the evening.)
James Peters: Let’s talk about Sierra Bradford for a minute, Rich. She continues to maintain this happy, upbeat personality, but when she steps into the squared circle, all of that positivity goes out the window. She is able to distinguish between what’s personal and what’s business very well. She competed in that horrific deathmatch with Komatsu Ogawa just last week, you know she must still be feeling the effects.
Rich Russillo: I’d bet, though she doesn’t seem to be wearing them, she looks like she’s itching to just get in the ring and wrestle. Sierra Bradford is one of the most promising talents on Voltage, in my opinion. She doesn’t cheat, but she isn’t afraid to go to whatever lengths necessary on her way to the top. She’s out for gold and glory, and nobody’s getting in her way.
James Peters: Now we just await the arrival of Joy Cassidy.
(SASS get into the ring and get set. ‘Desire’ by Meg Myers begins to play as Joy Cassidy appears on the stage, motioning with one of her signature twirls.)
Bella Braxton: ANNNNDDD HER OPPONENT….WRESTLING OUT OF LONDOOONNNN, ENGLLANNDDDDD….WEIGHING IN AT 130lbs…. JOOOYYYYY “THEEEE KILLLEERRRR QUEEENNNNN” CAAAAASSSIIIDDDDYYYYYYY!!!!
Rich Russillo: This arena is deafening, some cheering and some jeering, but EVERYONE is on their feet! Joy Cassidy is certainly a lot of personality, but do not mistake all that flash for a lack of in-ring substance. Joy’s moveset is an arsenal packed with punishing and relentless offense. She can dissect you, finish you, or just toy with you. She is a prolific talent, her confidence only makes her more dangerous.
James Peters: I agree Rich, to discount Joy Cassidy is foolish. It only takes one strike for Joy Cassidy to finish you, to turn your lights out and leave with a win on her record. She’s a killer! With these two, I believe we can expect a clean contest, though Joy Cassidy is willing to bend the rules in her favor, to gain the upperhand in a desperate situation. That could prove the x-factor in this match.
Rich Russillo: Enough with the talking, James! It’s time for the match!
James Peters: Whatever you say, Rich. Let’s get into it!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Both women start with a cautious approach, not immediately pushing forward. As they slowly approach each other, beginning to grapple, attempting to body one another for an advantage…Sierra Bradford pressures Joy Cassidy back towards the corner…But Joy Cassidy manages to escape the clench, bringing right back to the middle of the ring, back to square one, BUT JOY CASSIDY ATTEMPTS A STEP-UP ENZIGURI, EXPLODING ON BRADFORD, BUT SIERRA AVOIDS IT AND PROCEEDS TO LAUNCH JOY CASSIDY ACROSS THE RING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! MY GOD, WHAT A SEQUENCE TO KICK OFF THIS BOUT!!
Rich Russillo: JOY CASSIDY THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO TURN SIERRA’S LIGHTS OUT EARLY, BUT BRADFORD SAID NO, AS SHE SENDS JOY CASSIDY FLYING ACROSS THE RING WITH THAT GERMAN! Sierra Bradford too quick for Cassidy! Joy attempting to get to her feet, but Bradford comes off the ropes…LOOKING FOR A PENALTY KICK, RIGHT TO THE FACE…NO JOY CASSIDY CAUGHT HER LEG, AND DRIVES THE KNEE OF SIERRA BRADFORD DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! SHE ABSOLUTELY CRUSHED HER LEG, THAT ONE MOVE MAY HAVE JUST CHANGED THE COMPLEXION OF THE ENTIRE MATCH! Bradford cries out in pain, you could feel the impact of Sierra’s knee against that unforgiving canvas from a mile away, sheesh. At this point Joy Cassidy has turned the tide of this match in her favor, and she isn’t going to let Sierra Bradford change that anytime soon. Cassidy now with a stomp the the injured right knee of Sierra…Now another, and again, she is just picking her apart right now. We spoke earlier about how Cassidy has the ability to dissect her opponent, that’s exactly what you’re seeing here. JOY CASSIDY NOW WITH A SMIRK ON HER FACE, RIPS APART THE KNEE OF SIERRA BRADFORD WITH A DEVASTATING DRAGON SCREW!! THAT DRAGON SCREW HAD MALICE IN IT, SHE DOESN’T JUST WANT TO WIN THIS ONE, SHE WANTS TO DO IT IN FASHION, EVEN IF IT COSTS SIERRA BRADFORD HER CAREER!
James Peters: It’s an unforgiving and merciless strategy, but a brilliant one. We mentioned Sierra’s ability to separate personal matters from business matters, I believe that’s just what Joy Cassidy is doing right now, whatever she needs to, to make her way to the top. JOY CASSIDY ATTEMPTING ANOTHER DRAGON SCREW…BUT SIERRA BRADFORD IS TRYING TO COUNTER, SHE’S FIGHTING BACK, TRYING TO RALLY …THE CROWD BEHGIND HER, CLAPPING AND CHEERING…SIERRA BRADFORD TWISTS HER BODY AND FLIPS JOY CASSIDY, AS SHE GETS BACK TO HER FEET!!!
(The crowd erupts with support!)
James Peters: SIERRA BRADFORD IS FEELING THE ENERGY OF THIS ARENA, SHE SEEMS TO HAVE CAUGHT A SECOND WIND! BRADFORD ONCE AGAIN LAUNCHES JOY CASSIDY HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING, THIS TIME WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! BRADFORD LETS A ROAR OF ENERGY, THIS IS NOT A CRY OF PAIN, IT’S A CRY OF RESURRECTION! BRADFORD ONCE AGAIN BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, BUT SHE’S MET WITH A BOOT TO THE MIDSECTION, NOW JOY CASSIDY STACKS HER UP FOR A POWERBOMB, ONE AGAIN LOOKING TO TAKE CONTROL OF THIS MATCH…BUT SIERRA BRADFORD ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR, AND NAILS CASSIDY WITH A SUPERKICK!! RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, WHAT A NASTY MOVE, BUT LOOK WHERE JOY CASSIDY IS, SHE FELL ONTO THE SECOND ROPE, SHE IS IN PERFECT POSITION FOR A TIGER FEINT KICK!!! BUT DOES SIERRA BRADFORD HAVE THE STRENGTH TO PULL IT OFF, THAT KNEE IS STILL GIVING HER TROUBLE …SHE’S GOING TO TRY ANYWAY!!! SIERRA BARDFORD WITH TWO BOOTS RIGHT TO THE FACE OF JOY CASSIDY, AS SHE LANDS THE TIGER FEINT KICK TO PERFECTION!!!
Rich Rusillo: THE ATHLETICISM IS IMPRESSIVE, BUT THE HEART OF SIERRA BRADFORD IS EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE, SHE IS LAYING IT ALL ON THE LINE RIGHT NOW, SHE JUST WONT BREAK! NOW BRADFORD SEES HER OPPORTUNITY, SHE SEES VICTORY ON THE HORIZON, SHE IS GOING FOR SOMETHING EVEN MORE HIGH RISK….SHE SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE SECOND ROPE, LOOKING FOR A BIG KICK…BUT JOY CASSIDY AVOIDS IT!!! NO WATER IN THE POOL FOR SIERRA BRADFORD! JOY CASSIDY NOW ATTEMPTING TO SPRINGBOARD OFF THE ROPES, AND SHE DOES AS SHE DRIVES SIERRA BRADFORD DOWN WITH A SPRINGBOARD DDT! WOW!!!
(The crowd send massive applause to both women and chants of “THIS IS AWESOME, THIS IS AWESOME, THIS IS AWESOME!)
Rich Rusillo: JOY CASSIDY WITH A HELL OF A MOVE, SHE SMELLS THE BLOOD IN THE WATER, THIS IS HER CHANCE TO CAPITALIZE!! SHE BRINGS BRADFORD BACK UP TO HER FEET… AND SHE NAILS A KNEE STRIKE!!! SHE NAILED THAT “BREAK YA FACE” KNEE STRIKE, I THINK THAT IT MIGHT’VE DONE JUST THAT, JESUS CHRIST!! NOW STACKING SIERRA BRADFORD UP, NO WAY, SHE CAN’T …SHE BRINGS BRADFORD CRASHING DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB!!! HOLY SHIT!!! A RING RATTLING POWERBOMB!!! THAT’S IT!!! JOY CASSIDY INTO THE COVER, FOR A WIN…
James Peters: KICKOUT!!! HOW?!?! JESUS CHRIST, HOW DID BRADFORD STAY ALIVE AFTER THAT THUNDEROUS POWERBOMB, HER LEGS MUST HAVE GIVEN OUT LONG AGO, BUT SHE WILL FIGHT TO THE END! SHE HAS THE HEART OF A WARRIOR, SHE WILL NOT QUIT, SHE WILL NOT SUBMIT, SHE’D RATHER DIE IN THAT RING IN A BLOODY HEAP, THAN TO QUIT RIGHT NOW!!! WHAT A MATCH, MY GOD!!!
Rich Russillo: Joy Cassidy looks as stunned as anybody, but she knows she can’t stop now, she knows she’s got Sierra on the ropes, that one final nail in the coffin may seal Sierra’s fate and etch Cassidy;s name in the history books, with a win here tonight! Joy Cassidy now bringing Sierra Bradford to the corner, what does she have in mind now?!? Wait…Cassidy’s scaling he ropes, positioning herself on the top turnbuckle…NOW SHE BRINGS SIERRA BRADFORD UP TO THE SECOND ROPE, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING TO HAPPEN HERE!!?!? OH NO…RICH, SHE CAN’T BE THINKING WHAT I THINK SHE’S THINKING …SHE’S NOT GOING TO ATTEMPT AN AVALANCHE POWERBOMB FROM UP THERE, IT’LL PUT SIERRA BRADFORD ON THE SHELF, THIS IS CRAZY…. NO WAY, SHE’S GOT HER IN POSITION, JOY CASSIDY WITH AN AVALANCHE POWERB-
James Peters: BRADFORD COUNTERS AND LAUNCHES JOY CASSIDY OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A HURRICANRANA, ALL THE WAY FROM THE SKIES BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!! JESUS, YOU COULD HEAR THE ORGANS OF JOY CASSIDY BOUNCE OFF HER RIBCAGE!!! WHAT A MOVE FROM SIERRA BRADFORD!!! SHE HAS TAKEN CONTROL NOW, THIS IS HER CHANCE, IT’S DO OR DIE, SHE NEEDS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE NOW!!! SIERRA BRADFORD ATTEMPTS A 450 SPLASH FROM THE TOP ROPE, BUT CASSIDY AVOIDS IT, BRADFORD ROLLS THROUGH, SIERRA BRADFORD NAILS A SHOOT KICK RIGHT TO THE CHEST OF CASSIDY, THEN FOLLOWS UP WITH A SWEEP OF THE LEGS, DROPPING JOY CASSIDY, BRADFORD ATTEMPTS A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! CASSIDY ESCAPES AND NAILS ANOTHER KNEE TO THE FACE, RIGHT ON THE CHIN!! NOW A BELLY TO BACK INVERTED SLAM, THE “EAT DEFEAT” LANDED, BUT BRADFORD GOT RIGHT BACK UP AND EXPLODES WITH A LARIAT! COUNTERED INTO A DDT BY JOY CASSIDY!!!!!!! WHAT A SEQUENCE!!!
Rich Russillo: THESE TWO WOMEN ARE ABSOLUTE WARRIORS, THEIR HEART AND PERSEVERANCE ARE UNMATCHED, MY GOD, COMPETITORS LIKE THESE DON’T COME AROUND OFTEN, AND WHEN THEY DO, YOU KNOW YOU’RE WITNESSING SOMETHING SPECIAL!! BOTH WOMEN LAY LIFELESSLY ON THE CANVAS, THIS CROWD IS GOING CRAZY!!! WHAT A BOUT BETWEEN THESE TWO WOMEN!!! THEY’RE TRYING TO GET BACK TO THEIR FEET…SOMEHOW BOTH COMPETITORS BACKUP TO THEIR FEET, NEITHER WILLING TO BREAK, NEITHER WOMAN WILLING TO GIVE UP, THEY’RE BOTH WILLING TO DIE BEHIND THEIR PRIDE, THEY MIGHT HAVE TO…HERE WE GO, BOTH WOMEN TRADING FOREARMS AND PUNCHES, JUST A FRENZY OF STRIKES, SIERRA BRADFORD SEEMS TO HAVE GAINED THE UPPER HAND, COMING OFF THE ROPES, BUT SHE’S MET WITH ANOTHER VICIOUS KNEE STRIKE FROM CASSIDY, BUT BRADFORD RETURNS WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!!! A DESTRUCTIVE LAIRAT FROM BRADFORD, CASSIDY’S GONNA HAVE TO GO COLLECT HER TEETH FROM THE FRONT ROW!
James Peters: What a war this has been, I don’t see either woman walking out of here witho- WAIT WHAT THE HELL, WHO THE, SOMEONE JUST JUMPED THE BARRICADE AND IS- WAIT THAT’S DARCY MAY MORGAN, THE SPECIALIST CHAMPION, SHE JUST CAME OUT OF THE CROWD, AND SHE JUST NAILED SARAH PRICE WITH THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON, WHY IS SHE DOING THIS!? DARCY ENTERING THE RING, AND SIERRA TRYING TO GO AFTER DARCY- TTYN!!! THAT KNOCKOUT PUNCH CONNECTS BUT DARCY ISN’T FINISHED!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Rich Russillo: WHY THE HELL IS SHE HERE, WHY IS SHE ATTACKING SIERRA?!?! JOY CASSIDY HAS LEFT THE RING, NOT WANTING ANY PART OF THIS AND MORGAN NOW NAILS THE REFEREE WITH THE TITLE, HE WONT STOP HER, SHE’S OUT FOR BLOOD!!!! MORGAN NOW WITH ANOTHER HORRIBLE SHOT WITH THE TITLE, THAT ONE BUSTED SIERRA BRADFORD WIDE OPEN, HER HEAD LEAKING BLOOD ALL OVER THE CANVAS, HER BODY BROKEN AND BRUISED, WHY THE HELL WOULD DARCY MAY MORGAN DO THIS, WE SAW SUCH HEART AND FIGHT FROM SIERRA AND JOY, NOW FOR A GREAT MATCH TO BE TARNISHED IN THIS FASHION IS A DISGRACE!!!
(As Sierra lays on the mat in a pool of her own blood, Darcy goes to grab a microphone. She then re-enters the ring as the crowd continues booing.)
Darcy May Morgan: Yeah yeah yeah, I’m sure each and every single one of you saw what happened on Dynasty. You all saw me lose to Drake King when I know I had him beat! I had Drake laid out on the mat, and if it wasn’t for her right here, I would’ve won. Drake knows it, and clearly you knew it too after doing what you did. I was supposed to win that match, but of course you just had to get yourself involved. You just can’t seem to get away from me. I should be able to stand here and say I beat Drake King, but once again you had to make your presence known. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of you Sierra. These past few weeks have been an absolute nightmare. Having to listen to your voice. Having to see you, and even compete against you. It’s all been almost torturous. It’s an experience I hope I can forget as soon as possible but I know you’re not going to just leave me alone after all this, so I’ll tell you what. I’ll give you what you want. I’ll give you what you’ve been practically begging for these past few weeks, but soon enough you’re gonna wish you never stepped up to me. I hope you remember how it feels right now. Laying there in a pool of your own blood. I hope you keep that memory with you up until King if Elite, because when the time comes, history is going to repeat yourself.
(Loud boos are heard, but at the same time confusion seems to show on some of the fans faces as Darcy named the King of Elite event coming up, as she was not yet scheduled for a match at the event.)
Darcy May Morgan: Yes, you heard me right. King of Elite. Sierra, I’m going to give you your match at King of Elite. Sierra Bradford versus Darcy May Morgan. The Leading Lady and Specialists Champion, versus you. You’re going to get exactly what you’ve been asking for, and soon enough exactly what you deserve. I’m not just going to defeat you Sierra. I’m going to destroy you. Decimate you. If I have to, I’m going to kill you. You’re going to regret this Sierra. You’re going to regret it all. The day you became a thorn in my side. Don’t forget Sierra, you wanted this. You started all this, and I’m going to be the one that finishes it. Our match is going to be for the Specialists Championship, so when I pin you on the mat and send you crying to Sarah, Drake, or whoever else you’ve made friends with around here, I hope you truly take the time to soak in that moment, because our match is going to be the last time you come close to the Specialists Championship. Good luck Sierra. You’re going to need it.
(‘Spotlight Savior’ hits as Darcy slams her microphone down onto Sierra. The crowd begins booing as Darcy takes her Specialists Championship and begins to walk out of the ring, but it’s clear that she does not care about the audience’s reaction as she got her message clear. Sierra is just barely even awake as she’s still laid out in the ring, left to process everything Darcy said.)
(Voltage fades into a recap for Saturday Night Showdown.)
(A recap of Showdown airs highlight the emotionally charged Answers World Championship match between Cameron Ella Ava and Jamie O’Hara. Personally feelings were off the table as Jamie systematically picked apart the champ’s left arm, and Cameron showed her will and her desire to never give up and keep what is hers. The match would end when Jamie trapped Cameron in an armbar, but thanks to Xander Payne showing up and destroying Jamie with a chair, the match would end in Jamie’s favor via disqualification. Jamie would move on to the King of Elite finals, while Cameron remained champ, and things between the two are still left unsettled.)
(Voltage fades back in and cuts to the backstage medical area. An aspiring local wrestler is seen walking into the office of Dr. Bethany Blue. Nurse Rannanah Goldstein greets this young man with a business-like smile and motions for him to have a seat on the examination table.)
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Name.
Patient: Dušan Milovich.
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Is everything correct on this form? Age? Height? Weight? Medical history?
Dušan Milovich: Yes, it’s correct.
(Nurse Goldstein nods and sets the clipboard to the side.)
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Strip and I’ll take your blood pressure.
Dušan Milovich: Strip? I need to strip in order for you to take my blood pressure?
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: That is correct. Doctor’s orders.
(Dušan doesn’t seem so sure, but one evil look from Nurse Goldstein keeps him from protesting. He quickly strips off his clothes and looks around, seeing that there’s no hospital gown for him to wear. He looks a little embarrassed, especially as Nurse Goldstein looks down and gives him a pitying look. She goes to work taking his blood pressure and once she’s finished, she takes the clipboard and makes some notes.)
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Very good. Dr. Blue will see you shortly.
(Nurse Goldstein heads out of the examination area and shuts the door. She walks into Dr. Bethany Blue’s small office and sees the doctor is watching a video on EAW.com. A bright smile crosses her face.)
Gina Romano (O.S.): Here is your winner, and new number one contender to the EAW PURE Championship… JAKE SMITH!!!
(Dr. Blue claps her hands in delight as she watches Jake celebrate his victory for the 88th time that afternoon. She has not stopped watching his match and to say she is more than pleased over the outcome would be an understatement.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: This has legitimately been the worst week of my life but knowing that Jake Smith is going to be at King of Elite makes me so happy and excited. Can you picture it, Nurse Goldstein? I retain my championship. Jake reclaims his. The two of us stroll hand-in-hand through the streets of Rome as EAW’s undisputed golden couple??
(There are practically stars in Dr. Blue’s eyes and Nurse Goldstein just shakes her head. Try as she might, Nurse Goldstein just can not get the good doctor’s mind off of Jake Smith. The doctor was crushing.)
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Dr. Blue, your patient is ready. Blood pressure is good. Vitals are good. He looks healthy. His penis is below average in size and he does not appear to be circumcised, although that is not uncommon here in Europe. After losing our last patient due to infection from his circumcision, I feel it’s best we stay away from those at the moment. Your mother has made the lawsuit go away, but we can not afford another malpractice suit.
(Dr. Blue rolls her baby brown eyes.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: It’s not my fault he didn’t wash properly post-op. I did my job and I did it well, and it’s that young man’s own irresponsibility that cost him his life. I can only do so much, and even my mother said nothing could be done.
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Of course, Dr. Blue.
(Dr. Blue gets up and rolls up the sleeves of her doctor’s coat. She smooths down her sandy blonde hair and checks her deep red lipstick in her compact mirror. She finally takes the clipboard from Nurse Goldstein and heads into the examination office. Much to her shock, Dušan Milovich is gone.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Um, Nurse Goldstein! What happened to the patient?
(A confused Nurse Goldstein pops up behind Dr. Blue and pokes her head into the room.)
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: Well that’s odd. I left Mr. Milovich on the examination table.
(She steps into the small room and looks around.)
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: His clothes are gone as well.
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well check the bathroom! I was told this man needed a physical in order to get cleared for an in-ring return!
(Nurse Goldstein crosses over to the adjoining bathroom and right as she goes to open the door, it opens itself and slams into her head. A startled cry erupts from Nurse Goldstein as she flies back and hits the wall. Ms. Extreme darts out of the bathroom and nearly cuts Dr. Bethany Blue in half with a spear! Ms. Extreme mounts the doctor and begins throwing lefts and rights, absolutely beating the hell out of the doctor!)
Dr. Bethany Blue: NURSE! NURSE! NURSE!
(Nurse Goldstein gets up as she hears the doctors cries and she sprints over to Ms. Extreme. She uses her hulking strength to rip Ms. Extreme off the doctor by the hair, but Ms. Extreme is far from done fighting. She stomps on Nurse Goldstein’s foot, catches her in the face with a back elbow, and breaks free.)
Ms. Extreme: YOU’RE DEAD!
(She jumps back on top of Dr. Blue, but this time the doctor has had a little time to prepare. She is able to fend Ms. Extreme off and sit down on top of her! Ms. Extreme struggles and the doctor does her damndest to try and get her knees down onto Ms. Extreme’s arms and pin her down in place. Dr. Blue slams her fist into Ms. Extreme’s face a couple of times but all that does is cause Ms. Extreme’s adrenaline to spike and she is able to muscle Dr. Blue off of her! Ms. Extreme scrambles to her feet but Nurse Goldstein has recovered and she quickly cracks Ms. Extreme upside the head with a metal bedpan.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Goodness! How the heck did she get in here!!!
(Dr. Blue and Nurse Goldstein look at Ms. Extreme who is holding her head and struggling to sit up.)
Nurse Goldstein: I’m not sure! Perhaps she let Mr. Milovich out and snuck in??
(Ms. Extreme has gotten herself into a sitting position and despite her throbbing head, she looks up at Dr. Blue and Nurse Goldstein. The good doctor gives Ms. Extreme an annoyed look.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: How’s your head?
Ms. Extreme: Believe me, it’s just fine.
(Ms. Extreme leaps to her feet and she goes after the nurse first! She slams Nurse Goldstein into the wall and begins beating the hell out of her. Dr. Blue jumps in and grabs Ms. Extreme by the hair, but Ms. Extreme fends her off, takes Dr. Blue, and slams her face first into the medical table. Dr. Blue hits the ground and Ms. Extreme starts stomping away on her.)
Ms. Extreme: There is nothing that’s going to stop me from destroying you at King of Elite, bitch. Enjoy your time with that Interwire Champ-
(She’s promptly cut off by Nurse Goldstein coming up behind her and wrapping her in a choke. Ms. Extreme screams and fights, kicking her legs and clawing at Nurse Goldstein’s arms, but Dr. Blue quickly gets back up and fishes a syringe out of her pocket. She wastes no time jabbing the needle in the side of Ms. Extreme’s neck. Ms. Extreme goes limp and Nurse Goldstein lets her drop. Nurse and doctor take a moment to recover.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: I should have known those nasty Avas would get this one out of jail. I was hoping to avoid her this week, but life never works out how I want it too.
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: What should we do with her, Dr. Blue?
(Dr. Blue looks down at the woman who cost her her winning streak, her chance to make history by making the King of Elite finals, and most importantly, the woman who decided to come after her Interwire Championship. A dark look crosses the doctor’s face.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Throw her on the table and strip her.
(Nurse Goldstein doesn’t hesitate. She hauls Ms. Extreme up and throws her down on the medical table. She cuts Ms. Extreme’s clothes off leaving her in just her bra and panties. Nurse Goldstein goes to cut away the rest, but Dr. Blue holds up her hand. The nurse stops and Dr. Blue takes Ms. Extreme by the face and squeezes her cheeks as hard as she can.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: You disgust me, Camille. Look at all this body fat.
(Dr. Blue lets go of Ms. Extreme and takes a marker from her pocket, drawing circles all over what she deems are Ms. Extreme’s problem areas. It’s rather degrading for someone who’s unable to defend herself and once Dr. Blue is satisfied she’s marked all the areas, she folds her arms across her chest.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: You don’t belong in this company and I’m going to make sure I’m the one who takes you out of it. I’m going to end your career and quite possibly your life at King of Elite, you fudging bee itch, and the world will NEVER have to see Camille Jane Ava wrestle again. Nurse, finish stripping her and take her to catering. Throw her in that freezer we saw earlier and let her get a nice taste of hypothermia. She should wake up in about 10 minutes which is just enough time for the cold to reach her bones and give her a fright.
(Nurse Goldstein nods and picks up Ms. Extreme, lugging her over her shoulder. Catering happens to be right across from the medical area. It’s also empty and Nurse Goldstein takes Ms. Extreme right to the freezer that Dr. Blue had pointed out. She carelessly dumps Ms. Extreme inside and slams the door shut before walking off and sending Voltage to a promotion ad for Clash of Kingdoms.)

(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘CARION IS’ by LOVECraft hits to a now widely negative reaction as Lars Grier slowly makes his way out to the stage. He keeps the same focused look as always as he looks around at the arena, observing his surroundings but not paying attention to the booing fans. Eventually, Lars begins making his way down to the ring as Bella Braxton begins to speak.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… Residing in Toledo, Ohio…. Weighing in at 264 pounds… LAAAAAAAAAARS GRRRIIIIIIIIEEEERRR!!!!
James Peters: I think we’ve already said enough about how destructive Lars has been since his return, but tonight, I’m actually worried for his opponent. After what Lars did to all his opponents thus far, what do you think he’ll be able to do to Andrea Valentine?
Rich Russillo: Andrea is the EAW Champion, don’t act like she’s anything less. Lars is going to be more than a challenge, but if anyone can overcome it, I think Andrea can. She’s survived numerous challenges before, this shouldn’t be an exception.
James Peters: You’re right. Andrea is the EAW Champion for good reason. If anything, this is the match where Lars has to prove himself.
(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX hits and the crowd explodes as Andrea Valentine makes her way out to the stage with the EAW Championship on her shoulder. She looks completely focused on her opponent, as she makes her way down to the ring, making sure not to look away from Lars.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… From Orlando, Florida… Weighing in at 110 pounds… SHE IS THE EAW CHAMPION, AAAANNDRRREEAAAA VAAAALENTIIIIIIIINE!!!
James Peters: That’s an over 150 pound weight difference.
Rich Russillo: I never thought about that. This will be harder than I thought.
James Peters: Even so, Andrea has overcome size differences before, and she’s gonna have to do the same at King of Elite anyway. I still think she can do this.
Rich Russillo: I don’t know. I’m starting to think Lars might actually take this after doing some more thinking. I guess we’ll see though.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is now underway! Unlike another member of the Beating Hearts of Voltage Raven Roberts when she faced Lars, Andrea isn’t immediately going after Lars, instead it looks like she’s waiting to see who’ll make the first move! The two slowly approaching each other, possibly to lock up- NO! LARS WITH A HUGE KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! THAT KICK BROUGHT ANDREA DOWN TO A KNEE, AND NOW LARS IS LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE! LARS SENDING ANDREA INTO THE ROPES- BUT ANDREA DUCKS A LARIAT! ANDREA RUNNING OFF THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES- BUT SHE’S CAUGHT THIS TIME WITH A BIG BOOT! Lars has been such a destructive force since his return and it looks like he’s aiming to continue that path!
Rich Russillo: Andrea using the turnbuckles to pull herself back up to her feet, AND NOW LARS CHARGES IN- NO! ANDREA MANAGES TO JUMP OVER LARS, AND NOW SHE PULLS HIM DOWN FOR A SUNSET FLIP BOMB! ANDREA WITH THE FIRST PIN ATTEMPT OF THE MATCH!
Rich Russillo: LARS QUICKLY KICKS OUT! It’s not taking very long for Lars to get back to his feet, so now Andrea is already running the ropes- BUT THIS TIME LARS MANAGES TO HIT THAT LARIAT, AND HE JUST TURNED ANDREA INSIDE OUT WITH THAT ONE!
James Peters: Lars pulling Andrea to her feet, and he just throws her into the corner! Lars running in once more- BUT THIS TIME ANDREA CONNECTS WITH A BOOT RIGHT INTO LARS’ FACE! Andrea onto the middle rope, AND SHE DIVE- NO!! LARS WITH A BOOT TO THE MIDSECTION, SENDING ANDREA CRASHING RIGHT BACK INTO THOSE TURNBUCKLES! THE FORCE OF THAT BOOT SENT ANDREA INTO THOSE TURNBUCKLES HARD, AND NOW LARS GRABS ANDREA, AND HE DELIVERS AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY, SENDING ANDREA NEARLY TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: There’s been nobody quite like Lars Grier as of late. This man has been a huge threat to everyone who’s had the misfortune of having to face him. Andrea using the ropes to pull herself up, and still Lars isn’t ready to give her any room to breathe as he runs the ropes- BUT ANDREA WAS PREPARED AS SHE SENDS LARS THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! LARS LANDED ON THE APRON AND HE WAS ABLE TO GET UP QUICKLY, BUT THERE’S A FOREARM BY ANDREA! ANDREA GRABBING LARS NOW, AND SHE RUNS WITH HIM, SENDING HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST, KNOCKING LARS OFF OF THE APRON!
James Peters: Lars is still on his feet though! Lars holding his face as he walks around the ring, BUT NOW ANDREA RUNS THE ROPES- AND THERE’S A HUGE DROPKICK THROUGH THE ROPES, SENDING LARS INTO THE BARRICADE! HOW IMPRESSIVE WAS THAT BY ANDREA!? LARS IS SOMEHOW STILL ON HIS FEET, BUT ANDREA IS WASTING NO TIME IN FIXING THAT, AS SHE SENDS LARS CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS! ANDREA IS DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO TAKE DOWN LARS, AND SO FAR SHE’S DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB!
Rich Russillo: Lars is trying to use the apron to pull himself up- AND ANDREA SLAMS LARS FACE FIRST RIGHT ONTO THAT APRON! Andrea finally rolling Lars back into the ring, and now she’s climbing up to the top rope! Lars is still managing to get back up to his feet despite what we just saw, so it looks like Andrea is looking to fly! Andrea in position, DIVING CROSSBODY- Oh. OH NO! LARS JUST CAUGHT ANDREA RIGHT OUT OF THE AIR! WHAT A BACKBREAKER BY LARS! I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE DAMAGE SOMETHING LIKE THAT COULD’VE CAUSED!
James Peters: If Lars keeps this up he could gain a win over the EAW Champion! Andrea trying to crawl into the corner, but Lars is once again not giving Andrea a chance to as he deadlifts her up, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLE- NO! ANDREA MANAGED TO LAND ON HER FEET- AND SHE JUST HIT A DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF LARS’ HEAD! Andrea holding her stomach and I can only imagine that she’s still in pain after that backbreaker, but now there’s the cover! To put Lars Grier away!
Rich Russillo: LARS KICKS OUT! Lars slowly getting back to his feet- WAIT! CROSS ARMBREAKER! CROSS ARMBREAKER BY ANDREA VALENTINE! ANDREA HAS THAT ARM BAR LOCKED IN, AND IF THERE WAS ANY WAY FOR ANDREA TO GET BACK INTO THIS MATCH, THIS IS IT! LARS IS STRUGGLING IN THAT ARM BAR, AND HE’S REACHING OUT FOR THOSE ROPES BUT THEY’RE JUST BARELY TOO FAR FOR HIM! ANDREA IS LOOKING TO PUT LARS AWAY, AND SHE MIGHT JUST DO THAT IF SHE KEEPS THIS ARM BAR LOCKED IN LIKE THIS! LARS IS CLENCHING HIS FIST, HE’S TRYING AS HARD AS HE CAN NOT TO TAP!
James Peters: WAIT, LARS IS GETTING UP TO A KNEE! WE SAW RAVEN ROBERTS ATTEMPT SOMETHING SIMILAR IN HER MATCH AGAINST LARS AND WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT ENDED! LARS IS SOMEHOW GETTING TO HIS FEET, AND I THINK THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GO THE SAME WAY FOR ANDREA! LARS IS SOMEHOW PICKING ANDREA UP WITH HIS ARM- BUT OH MY GOD! JUST AS HE DOES THAT ANDREA JUMPED ONTO LARS AND LOCKED IN A GUILLOTINE CHOKE! ANDREA COULDN’T GET HIM DOWN ONTO THE MAT, BUT EVEN SO LARS IS IN TROUBLE! HE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING FAST!
Rich Russillo: NO, HE’S NOT IN TROUBLE! LARS JUST RAMMED ANDREA RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! LARS NOW, WITH A HUGE BACK BODY DROP! Andrea hit the mat hard, but surprisingly it looks like Lars has to take some time to recover! I don’t think we’ve even scratched the surface of what this man is capable of, but even so Andrea has clearly put up a great fight thus far! Lars deadlifting Andrea up though, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S TRYING TO SET UP FOR A POWERBOMB BUT ANDREA IS DOING HER BEST TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! ANDREA WITH REPEATED PUNCHES, OVER AND OVER, AND- OH MY GOD!
James Peters: LARS GRIER JUST POWERBOMBED ANDREA VALENTINE OUT OF THE RING! OH MY GOD! ANDREA WAS JUST LAID OUT BY LARS, AND NOW LARS IS JUST LOOKING DOWN ON THE EAW CHAMPION AS THE REFEREE FINALLY BEGINS TO COUNT, THIS MATCH MAY ACTUALLY BE FINISHED HERE!
Referee: One!… Two!… Three!…
James Peters: The referee is still counting, but wow, Andrea is actually stirring! I don’t know how, but it looks like she’s somehow managing to get back to her feet!
Referee: Four!… Five!… Six!…
Rich Russillo: Andrea is slowly getting back up, AND WAIT! LARS IS RUNNING THE ROPES! WHAT’S HE DOING!? OH MY GOD, TOPE CON HILP BY LARS GRIER!! LARS GRIER JUST HIT A TOPE CON HILO, THERE’S NO WAY SOMEONE HIS SIZE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT!! Wait a minute.. Why isn’t Lars… ANDREA MOVED! ANDREA MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT! LARS HASN’T GOTTEN BACK UP AND IT’S BECAUSE HE CRASHED RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE AND HE DIDN’T EVEN HIT ANDREA! ANDREA ROLLING LARS BACK INTO THE RING, AND NOW ONCE AGAIN SHE SLOWLY MAKES HER WAY UP TOP!
James Peters: LARS SLOWLY GETTING BACK UP- BUT THERE’S A DIVING METEORA BY ANDREA VALENTINE!! ANDREA NOW WITH THE COVER TO PUT AWAY LARS GRIER!!
ONE! TWO!! THR-
James Peters: LARS KICKS OUT!! Andrea looks clearly frustrated and it’s clear to see why! After everything both competitors have done to each other so far, still this match doesn’t seem like it’s going to end any time soon! This match has already taken so much out of both competitors, how is this supposed to end? Andrea pulling Lars up to a knee, and now she run the ropes! VALENTINE’S MASSACRE- WAIT, NO!
Rich Russillo: LARS IS HOLDING ONTO ANDREA AND HE’S SLOWLY GETTING BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HOW IS THIS MAN DOING THIS!? LARS GRIER, WITH A SIT OUT POWERBOMB!! COVER BY LARS NOW!
ONE! TWO!! THR-
Rich Russillo: ANDREA MANAGES TO KICK OUT THIS TIME! LARS HASN’T EVEN GOTTEN BACK TO HIS FEET YET DESPITE THAT, AND IT LOOKS LIKE LARS IS ALREADY FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THIS MATCH AS HE’S FORCED TO PULL HIMSELF INTO THE CORNER! I don’t know how these two are doing it! Lars is slowly pulling himself up to his feet, and it looks like he’s now waiting for Andrea to get back up herself!
James Peters: Andrea is just barely managing to get to her feet, although the fact that she’s getting up at all is outstanding. Andrea turning towards Lars, AND NOW LARS CHARGES IN! RAVENB- NO! ANDREA WITH A HUGE KNEE TO LARS’ FACE! ANDREA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES- BUT LARS CATCHES HER WITH A POP UP POWER- HURRICANRANA! WHAT A HURRICANRANA BY ANDREA, JUST AS SHE WAS ALMOST MET WITH ANOTHER POWERBOMB! LARS STUMBLING INTO THE CORNER, AND NOW ANDREA CHARGES IN, WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA RUNNING THE ROPES ONCE MORE AS LARS STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER, AND THERE’S ANDREA WITH A- NO! LARS CATCHES ANDREA, AND NOW HE SETS HER UP! TOLEDO SUNRISE!! THAT TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS, AND ANDREA LOOKS ABSOLUTELY OUT OF IT! IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS STARTING TO FIND HER WAY BACK INTO THIS MATCH DESPITE ALL WE’VE JUST SEEN, BUT NOW WE MIGHT BE CLOSER THAN EVER TO THIS MATCH ENDING! LARS THOUGH, HE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S GOING FOR THE COVER! INSTEAD HE’S SLOWLY STARTING TO BACK UP ONCE AGAIN, AND I THINK HE’S INTENT ON HITTING THE RAVENBEAK!
James Peters: Maybe Lars had a feeling that the Toledo Sunrise wasn’t gonna get the job done. Or, he just wanted to do some more damage. Whatever the case is, he’s aiming to hit a move that’d surely cause the end of this match. Andrea looks nearly unresponsive though after that tombstone. The referee is checking on her- BUT LOOK AT THAT! LARS JUST RAN OVER TO ANDREA, AND NOW HE’S JUST STOMPING ALL OVER HER! THE EAW CHAMPION IS DEFENSELESS, AND ANDREA NOW IS FORCED TO ROLL OUT ONTO THE APRON TO TRY AND ESCAPE THOSE VICIOUS STOMPS!
Rich Russillo: Lars though, he’s pulling Andrea up by her hair! Andrea looks completely out of it, and- OH! WHAT A FOREARM BY ANDREA! ANDREA IS HANGING ONTO THE ROPES TO EVEN STAY ON HER FEET RIGHT NOW, BUT THAT FOREARM CAUSED LARS TO STUMBLE! LARS GOING BACK FOR ANDREA- BUT NOW ANDREA PULLS LARS THROAT FIRST ONTO THE TOP ROPE! LARS DROPS DOWN TO BOTH KNEES WHILE HOLDING HIS THROAT, AND NOW ANDREA GETS BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! WHAT A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO LARS’ BACK! ANDREA NOT FINISHED AS SHE RUNS THE ROPES AGAIN, AND THERE’S A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO LARS’ STOMACH THIS TIME! ANDREA FALLING ONTO LARS FOR THE COVER!
ONE! TWO!! THRE-
James Peters: LARS GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Andrea now wasting any time though as she immediately makes her way to the top rope as fast as she can! MAGIC HOUR, WHAT!? IT CONNECTS!!! THE MAGIC HOUR CONNECTS PITCH PERFECT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT, RIGHT!? LARS GRIER IS DONE FOR, ANDREA VALENTINE WINS!! ANDREA GOING FOR THE COVER, AND WHAT A PERFORMANCE BY LARS, BUT IT’S GOTTA BE OVER NOW!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
James Peters: YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! HOW!?
Rich Russillo: Andrea is in complete shock! How did Lars do it!? Why is Lars Grier still in this match!? Andrea herself looks tired, as if she’s barely even able to get up. This match has clearly taken a huge amount out of both competitors, and to think this match still isn’t over yet, it’s insane. To think that Lars is giving the current EAW Champion this much trouble, it shows just how impressive he’s been since his return. Lars is not someone to take lightly. Not anymore at least.
James Peters: Andrea climbing up to the top rope, and it looks like she’s just gonna wait there as Lars slowly begins to stir! I’m guessing she’s waiting for him to get back up, so I can only wonder what she’d be going for! Lars is slowly getting back up but he doesn’t seem to even know where he is, and that’s exactly what Andrea wants! Andrea in position, V-DAY!!! WAIT, WHAT!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? LARS ONCE AGAIN WAS ABLE TO CATCH ANDREA OUT OF THE SKY, AND HE HAS HER IN THAT POWERBOMB POSITION AGAIN BUT ANDREA IS DOING HER BEST TO FIGHT OUT OF IT!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA FIGHTS OUT, BUT LARS IMMEDIATELY BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES! RAVENBEAK- NO!! ONCE AGAIN ANDREA COUNTERED IT, THIS TIME WITH A KICK RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF LARS! LARS BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES ONCE MORE THOUGH, AND THERE’S A HUGE ELBOW TO ANDREA! ANDREA THOUGH, RETALIATES BY KICKING LARS’ FOOT OUT FROM UNDER HIM BEFORE HITTING A HUGE SPINNING BACKFIST! ANDREA RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A RUNNING METEORA!! ANDREA IS DOING IT, SHE’S TAKING DOWN LARS GRIER!! LARS IS STARTING TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT ANDREA ISN’T GIVING HIM ANY CHANCE TO RECOVER AD SHE BEGINS PUNCHING AWAY AT LARS!
James Peters: LARS IS LEFT DEFENSELESS IN THE CORNER AS ANDREA CONTINUES PUNCHING AWAY AT HIM! WAIT, NO! LARS PUSHES ANDREA AWAY! LARS CHARGING IN- BUT ANDREA SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! LARS STILL IN THAT CORNER AS ANDREA RUN S TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! ANDREA CHARGING IN NOW, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK TO LARS’ BACK! LARS FALLING OUT OF THE CORNER AND ANDREA RUNS THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME- JUMPING KNEE BY LARS! LARS JUST HIT A HUGE JUMPING KNEE OUT OF NOWHERE AND BOTH COMPETITORS NOW FALL!
Rich Russillo: Lars pulling Andrea up now, AND THERE’S A RIPCORD- FOREARM BY ANDREA! ANDREA IS STILL TRYING TO FIGHT AS MUCH AS SHE CAN- BUT LARS DROPS HER WITH A HUGE CLOSED FIST! THE REFEREE WARNING LARS AGAINST THE USAGE OF A CLOSED FIST BUT HE CLEARLY DOESN’T CARE! LARS JUST STOMPING AWAY AT THE FACE OF ANDREA, AND HE’S JUST DOING AS MUCH DAMAGE AS HE CAN! LARS PICKING ANDREA UP- AND ANDREA ROLLS HIM UP! SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP BY ANDREA! ANDREA TO STEAL THE WIN, SHE’S GONNA BEAT LARS!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
James Peters: NO SHE ISN’T, NOT YET! LARS KICKS OUT AND BOTH COMPETITORS GET BACK UP! LARS TRYING TO CLOTHESLINE ANDREA OUT OF THE RING, BUT ANDREA PULLS THE ROPES DOWN AND SENDS LARS OVER THE TOP ROPE! ANDREA RUNNING THE ROPES AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOING FOR ANOTHER DROPKIC- NO! LARS GOT HER THIS TIME, AND IT LOOKS LIKE LARS IS TRYING TO HIT THAT APRON POWERBOMB, BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO GRAB ONTO THE ROPES! ANDREA MANAGING TO KICK LARS AWAY, AND NOW SHE’S ON THE APRON! ANDREA RUNNING OFF OF IT, AND THERE’S A METEORA OFF THE APRON!!
Rich Russillo: NO! LARS HOLDS ONTO ANDREA! LARS PUSHING ANDREA AWAY, AND- OH MY GOD!!! LARS JUST HIT THE RAVENBEAK, HE JUST SPEARED ANDREA THROUGH THE BARRICADE!! LARS IS SOMEHOW STILL IN THIS, AND HE STILL DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S FINISHED AS THE REFEREE IS AT A COUNT OF THREE! LARS PULLING ANDREA AWAY FROM THE BARRICADE, AND NOW WHAT’S HE GONNA DO!?
Referee: Four!… Five!…
Rich Russillo: WAIT, WAIT! IT’S CONSUELA!! CONSUELA ROSE AVA IS RUNNING OVER HERE! CONSUELA IS RUNNING STRAIGHT TOWARDS LARS, AND- WAIT!!! OH MY GOD! WHO’S THAT!? SOMEONE JUST BLASTED CONSUELA IN THE FACE OUT OF NOWHERE! TWO PEOPLE JUST CAME FROM THE CROWD AS CONSUELA WAS ABOUT TO TRY AND ATTACK LARS!
(The two men take off the hoodies they were initially wearing, revealing themselves to be Levi and Rath, two members of the Corvus. Slowly Lars turns his attention away from Andrea and shifts it to Consuela, who is being grabbed by the two Corvus members.)
James Peters: IT’S RATH AND LEVI! TWO OF LARS’ CORVUS MEMBERS! THEY HAVE CONSUELA BY BOTH ARMS, AND NOW LARS IS JUST SLOWLY WALKING UP TO HER! LARS HAS IS ALMOST COMPLETELY EXPRESSIONLESS AS HE APPROACHES CONSUELA, BUT THERE’S A HUGE KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, CAUSING HER TO DROP TO HER KNEES! IT LOOKS LIKE LEVI IS GIVING ORDERS OR SOMETHING, BUT I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT!
James Peters: ANDREA’S OWN FRIEND CONSUELA IS GETTING DISMANTLED RIGHT NOW BY THE CORVUS, AND I DON’T THINK SHE EVEN REALIZES IT! LEVI AND RATH ARE JUST STOMPING AWAY AT CONSUELA!
James Peters: ANDREA ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING! LARS AND THE CORVUS COULDN’T SEEM TO CARE LESS ABOUT ANDREA, AS THEY’RE JUST DESTROYING CONSUELA! THE REFEREE THOUGH, HE REACHES TEN!

(‘Roll With Me’ hits as the Corvus continues to make their way up the steps. The match Lars and Andrea had was incredible, but after how it ended, there was not much to say as the Corvus made their way out. Meanwhile, Terry and Andrea begin to check on Consuela Rose Ava as the camera begins to fades to commercial break.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Alive’ by P.O.D. plays up to cheers as Rex McAllister makes his way to the stage. He stands there for a moment looking around before not long after Raven Roberts follows him out. They stand next to each other both eliciting a smirk before they give a nod and make their way to the ring interacting with the crowd along the way)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… accompanied by RAVEN ROBERTS… from Sea Isle, New Jersey… weighing in at 230 pounds… REX MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Last week Rex McAllister expressed his anger about the actions that unfolded over the past few weeks. And also about how Fire and Ice are going to beat them and set themselves out and take the opportunity that The ILLIONAIRES practically begged to get till now.
James Peters: Despite the setbacks Rex is coming into this match with a set intent on setting things straight for their opponents at King of Elite. He wants to get himself back on top, and what better time to start than now.
(Rex enters the ring and goes to the top rope looking around with a smile before jumping down and getting ready as ‘Alive’ fades out. ‘Odee’ by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie plays as the cheers turn to boos as Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier come out to the stage. Chris looks with determination on his face as Ahren hypes up the crowd behind him before they make their way to the ring both accompanied with big grins on their faces)
Bella Braxton: And their opponent… accompanied by AHREN FOURNIER… from Brooklyn, New York… weighing in at 210 pounds… CHRIS ELITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Both members of The ILLIONAIRES have had a lot to say about Fire and Ice, especially about crashing their wedding…
James Peters: But with that out of the way, they stated they have a lot to live up to in this match. They have come with intent motivation after Rex McAllister interfered in their match and caused a sure to be disappointing loss that strikes deep for both of them. Whilst Fire and Ice have a lot of motivation, I’m sure The ILLIONAIRES are coming in with the same amount as well. And I’m sure after Showdown they’ve also come for revenge
(Chris Elite enters the ring and goes straight up to Rex McAllister. Before any harm can be inflicted the Ref quickly splits them apart. Chris raises one arm in the air in the center of the ring with a smirk as ‘Odee’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)

Raven helps Rex up as she raises his hand up in victory to loud cheers from the crowd)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner, REX MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: What a battle we just witnessed. Both of these men gave their all in hopes of getting the upper hand come King of Elite. And in the end even with Ahren Fournier trying to help out Chris Elite get the win, it was Rex McAllister who turned it around surprisingly in a snap with the Rex Effect and managed to get a win. But other than that this match shows the will of both of these competitors. None of them wanted to stay down for a minute and it was evidently shown over the course of this match. In the end it took a lot to take either of these men down and it was just at that point where we just had to wait for one of them to snap in order to see the victor. And even with the tides turned on Rex McAllister he’s shown countless times over and over again that he can turn the situation around, this is just another example.
Rich Russillo: You have to give it up to The ILLIONAIRES though. On both showings on Showdown and Voltage although they both lost they gave it their all, to show why they truly earn the Unified Tag Team Championships. While Fire and Ice might’ve won both nights who knows? The tides might change, but this doesn’t take anything away from Rex and Raven. They both had a goal set in mind and they were flawless in execution. So congratulations to Fire and Ice. If we saw this on both nights, imagine what we’ll see at King of Elite when all members of each team settle the score.
James Peters: What an exciting Voltage we’ve seen but unfortunately all good things must come to an end. See you next week, signing off.
(A hurt Ahren Fournier has pulled Chris Elite out of the ring. Chris is still in shock as he looks at Fire and Ice and yells slurs at them grabbing his head in pain. The camera panned over to Fire and Ice who continued to celebrate their victory. Rex was on one turnbuckle while Raven was on the other as they pointed around as the camera fades out)
