Voltage 1/3/21

(EAW intro plays.)

(A highlight video plays recapping the Voltage action from Road to Redemption.)

(The men and women of Voltage put it all on the line at the year end finale. One of the most star studded Extreme Elimination Chambers in history ended in controversy when SOSA Henderson pinned Terry Chambers to retain the EAW World Championship. Terry’s shoulder would never be completely down, though. It would ironically land on Terry’s own chamber weapon and SOSA would make sure to hide that evidence so the referee couldn’t reverse the decision. Another Voltage Elitist would find themselves seemingly screwed out of a world championship win. After dominating her Universal Women’s Championship match against the champion, Serena Bennett, Ms. Extreme would fall victim to foul play. A returning Eris LeCava would strike Ms. Extreme in the face with a crip-a-cola bottle, knocking her out and allowing Serena to get the cheap victory. National Elite Champion, Myles, would finally get revenge on the evil Jesse Barlow once and for all. He would successfully defend the championship and send Barlow, and Barlow’s girlfriend, Hannah Marin, packing for good (with a little help from his lady love, Minerva, of course). The most stacked Grand Prix tournament in history came to an end when the Blicky Boyz, Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite, defeated the tournament favorites, Liquid Swordz. Mr. DEDEDE and Impact put up a fight, but in the end, Elite pinned DEDEDE for the win. The first Specialists Championship defense for Kasey Kaos didn’t exactly go as planned for the champ. She did retain her belt, but it was thanks to a shocking turn of events. Still ripe with anger over being defeated at Reasonable Doubt, Andrea Valentine would sneak her way into the chamber right as Harlow Reichert had the match won. She would take Harlow out, throw Kasey over top of ‘Miss No Fucks Given’, and give Kasey the win. Constance Blevins made a surprising return at Road to Redemption. After having her eye damaged at the hands of Sienna Jade back at Bloodsport, Constance would get some measure of revenge on the former National Elite Champion. After suffering defeat at the hands of Minerva, in an incredible match between two of the top females in professional wrestling today, Sienna would have her head smashed in by Constance, and Heavenly Hell would embrace one another. Finally, the Cash in the Vault briefcase would be on the line when Darcy May Morgan went into a barbed wire ladder match to defend against Drake King. This match would be an absolute war, and something not for the faint of heart. In the end, Darcy would retain but she paid a hefty price along the way.)

(The highlight video fades out and cuts to a live action shot of the virtual crowd, as the Voltage theme song pumps through the speakers. The rabid, bloodthirsty Voltage fans are excited to see what the gold brand has in store for the new year and reacted accordingly as gold and white pyro shoot off from the stage. When the smoke clears and the music fades away, the scene transitions to the broadcast booth where James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone are sitting.)

James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the first Voltage of 2021! As always, I’m James Peters, and joining me are my partners in crime, Rich Russillo and Persephone! Guys, how are you doing?

Persephone: Great! I got to spend a lot of time with Rex over the last few days and I really think we grew closer 😍😍

Rich Russillo: For the life of me I can’t figure out why he hasn’t gotten a restraining order on you yet.

Persephone: Because he clearly loves me you dumb fuck.

James Peters: Well anyway, we have one hell of a show lined up for you to-

Persephone: YES! Rexy takes on that dirty bitch Minerva in the main event! Rex should have every main event ever.

Rich Russillo: That match is also a first round match for the King of Elite tournament. Another first round match we will see tonight is the monster, Azrael, against the talented Candice Blair. Next week, two more first round matches will take place before we move onto the quarterfinals the following week.

James Peters: In addition to that, we have a Bloodsport rematch. Miss Cash in the Vault, Darcy May Morgan, will take on Terry Chambers. These two had vastly different experiences back at Road to Redemption and are in much different places now than they were back in August. This match should be a good one.

Persephone: I mean, I thought their first match kinda sucked…

Rich Russillo: It did not. And you know what else isn’t going to suck?

James Peters: What’s that?

Rich Russillo: The first ever one on one match with Drake the Redeemer and Myles :blessed:

James Peters: :blessed:

Persephone: 🥱😴

James Peters: We have the solo debuts of a new tag team, IDOL-GUN! Ms. Extreme and Constance Blevins will take on Hikari Kanno and Miku Sakai respectively. Our EAW World Champion, SOSA Henderson, is in action against Shane Gates. The Grand Prix winning Blicky Boyz will be here tonight as well. It’s going to be a great night.

Persephone: Boring night.

(Before anyone else can reply or chime in, the lights inside of World 1 Theatre go off.)

Rich Russillo: Well I guess we know what this is about…

(Rich is speculating about the events that went down on Dynasty and Showdown over the weekend. A small movement was started on social media, #BoycottKOE, and on each show so far a voice has been heard speaking out about why the annual King of Elite tournament should not take place. Graffiti had been spray painted on the building before Dynasty, and on Showdown, two of the participants, Consuela Rose Ava and Kassidy Heart, had been threatened by a nun because of their gender. It was a lot for everyone to try and take in, but still the tournament continued to press on.)

(Rich’s suspicions are correct.)

(The videotron flashes on and the fans begin to boo.)

(#BoycottKOE)

James Peters: It looks like you’re exactly right, Rich. I was a bit surprised to come in today and find everything seemingly quiet. After the disturbances on Dynasty and Showdown before and during their shows, I came to work today fully on guard.

Rich Russillo: Same. I know how important King of Elite is to a lot of people. Rex and Minerva spoke so passionately this week about wanting to get that crown for their own reasons. For someone like Candice, advancing in the tournament is only going to continue to raise her stock and make her the one to watch. And for Azrael, a man hellbent on death and destruction, this tournament provides him with plenty of chances to hurt people…

Persephone: All I care about is living in a world where Sexy Rexy reigns as king 💯

(#BoycottKOE flashes across the tron several times along with various propaganda inspired messages. The past winners are denounced, with The Visual Prophet’s face even being blurred out. This year’s announced female participants are shown with reasons listed as to why they would never be fit to reign.)

Voiceover: Boycott King of Elite.

(The videotron flickers off, engulfing World 1 Theatre in complete darkness. After a moment, a white spotlight shines on the stage. “Triumph” by Tenth Dimension begins to play and that causes all the fans to feel some type of way. As Drake the Redeemer strolls onto the stage, white silk robes billowing dramatically behind him, microphone in hand as well, the fans really unload, letting him know exactly what they think of him.)

Virtual Fans: FUCK YOU DRAKE 👏👏 FUCK YOU DRAKE 👏👏 FUCK YOU DRAKE 👏👏

(Drake doesn’t even bother to go to the ring or wait for his music to fade. He flashes his brilliant smile to the crowd.)

Drake King: HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AS WELL :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:

Virtual Fans: NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

Drake King: YES! Since you people won’t boycott King of Elite and actually cheer these greedy self-righteous, ego driven Elitists on, I have decided to take it upon myself to do something about this bull crap!

Virtual Fans: BOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOO

Drake King: I forgive myself for using such harsh language, but it seems as if none of you wanted to listen to the truths I had to say on Dynasty and on Showdown. I tried to tell everyone why King of Elite was bad. I ran down the past winners and it goes without saying that most of them have been banned from the EAW history books and for good reason. They are utter disgraces and last year, the biggest offender of them all was allowed to walk away with that crown. Sickening. It was just such a horrific display of greed. I try and be merciful when it comes to dealing with those who oppose me and scorn my teachings but there are just some people in this world who don’t deserve my kindness. Last year’s winner is one of them and really everything he represents is one of the biggest reasons as to why I want to see this tournament stopped. We hit rock bottom last year and right now, we are on track to have an even worse winner and I didn’t think that was possible. It just completely blows my mind when I look at the participants still left. This is without even knowing who will compete next week for Voltage.

(It’s obvious that Drake is visibly upset about this tournament. His voice is full of absolute disdain for everything about King of Elite and in his deluded brain, he does actually believe that the winners of the tournament are going to continue to be people who deserve to be erased from the EAW record books for good. His feelings towards Malcolm and The Visual Prophet are pretty obvious, and his biggest fear is this year’s winner following in their same treacherous footsteps.)

Drake King: My heart is broken that men like Xander Payne and Jake Smith have advanced. Neither of them deserve anything in this world but pain and suffering. They both had the chance to better themselves and time and time again they fail. This vanity stable Jake Smith has put together is a harsh reminder of a dark time in my own life and it seems like Jake hasn’t learned from that shared experience. He’s coerced an innocent young man in Donovan Duke to join him. It’s awful. Looking at Xander Payne is awful. He’s the physical embodiment of gluttony at the dinner table and away from it. Someone tell me how in the heck he is fit to be king? Someone tell me why someone like MITSUBACHI was given a chance? He’s nothing more than a sloth, someone who shows up whenever he wants and is okay with that. This is why King of Elite is bad. This is why we need to get rid of this tournament once and for all. Consuela Rose Ava and Kassidy Heart advancing to the next round are absolute travesties. A female running around and calling themselves king is not okay. It’s just not okay at all. Do you all understand why that would be wrong? It’s bad enough most of the past winners have been erased from history for one reason or another, but to give wanton women this type of platform to promote their sexuality and their sinful behavior is not a good idea, like at all. This is not what female empowerment is supposed to stand for. Take a look at Minerva and Candice Blair for example. They pride themselves on their sex appeal and selling their looks, in addition to their wrestling skills. How is that type of thing right? Why is that something we need to see in a tournament that is supposed to be about men competing for a crown? I don’t get it, and I don’t understand why you people support it. I really just don’t see how this tournament is going to benefit anyone. All it will do is give someone a reason to brag about something the rest of us don’t care about, and have a title shot they could have earned the old fashioned way.

(Drake is really riled up now.)

Drake King: If professional wrestling was as pure of a sport as it claims to be, then there wouldn’t be titles or pointless tournaments, or even any reason at all for people to run around fighting over who is the best. It would be about getting in the ring and showcasing our skills, and competing just for the heck of it. That is why we all got into this, right? Lust for championships is certainly not right, and some of EAW’s biggest offenders are still in this tournament. I went to Captain Charisma earlier today to campaign in person about canceling this. Unfortunately, he does not see my position, and neither do the rest of the general managers and board members. They are all about the ratings this tournament gets and the revenue it generates, and to heck with all the bad apples who have been allowed to profit from this. It doesn’t really matter that all the former kings have been terrible people who will one day burn in Hell for all their crimes against humanity. EAW’s answers to their insolence is to pretend they never existed. This is wrong. This is wrong on so many levels. If we had never had this tournament in the first, then certain people would never have been allowed to flourish, and this company would be a better place. Thank Myself for the fact I am here. I will fix this. I may not be able to get this tournament cancelled. You people may refuse to boycott. But I will impact this entire thing in one or another. I will make sure that the worst of the worst do not make it to the finals, and if they have a problem with that, then they can take it up with me. That being said, I wish you all a pleasant viewing experience tonight.

(“Triumph” by Tenth Dimension kicks back up and Drake raises his arms in the air. He is showered with jeers and but none of that seems to phase ‘The Messiah’. He smiles brilliant once again, knowing he is going to change the course of the tournament.)

(The camera takes a final shot of Drake before fading to the first commercial break of the night.)

(Commercial break for the COVID-19 vaccine which features former Elitist TNT receiving the first dose. Immediately he begins to foam at the mouth and twitch, and the camera quickly cuts because they still want everyone to believe the vaccine is safe :mjpls:)

(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons begins to play, and the virtual fans in the World 1 Theatre begin to cheer as Terry Chambers makes his way to the stage. As Terry walks out to the stage he has a microphone in his hand, and it’s pretty clear to everyone that he’s not happy at all as he continues walking down to the ring. As Terry enters the ring he waits for the crowd to quiet down, and finally he begins to speak.)

Terry Chambers: I’ve had a lot of time to think about what happened at Road to Redemption. It’s been a few weeks now, but no matter how you look at it I was screwed over. There’s nothing else I can say about it. I was screwed over. That match shouldn’t have ended when it did. That Championship was MINE! For years I’ve struggled winning my first World Championship. For years the narrative has been circling around that Terry Chambers just couldn’t win the big one, and for a while now that narrative has actually been the truth. For a while I actually wasn’t able to get the job done, and I had opportunities in the past that I simply failed to capitalize on, but THIS? This wasn’t it. This wasn’t one of those matches where I just failed to deliver. This wasn’t just another blown opportunity, that Championship was stolen from me and each and every single one of you knows that. Road to Redemption was supposed to be my night. That was supposed to be the night where I finally break this curse and win my first World Championship, and you know what happens? I didn’t lose! My shoulders were never down, but for some reason I’m not holding the Championship right now! For some reason a faulty call was allowed to be made when I was THIS close to finally winning that damn title! Believe me, I tried looking at the bright side, I tried to just forget about it, but there is no way I’m letting this pass. I was screwed over at Road to Redemption and there is no way in Hell I’m letting that fraud of a Champion get away with that. I want my rematch for the EAW Championship, my RIGHTFUL rematch! I don’t give a damn about some tournament, not after I had that title stolen from me. Fuck a crown. I want SOSA Henderson right NOW!

(Finally, ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef begins to play, causing the virtual crowd to begin booing heavily as SOSA Henderson walks out to the stage wearing his EAW Championship and holding a microphone. SOSA actually has a smile on his face, clearly amused by Terry Chambers, and he begins walking down towards the ring while speaking.)

SOSA Henderson: Terry, Terry, Terry. I thought you knew what you were getting yourself into? This wasn’t just any fuckin’ match, it was an EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER! Weren’t you in one of those before? You should be the last one complaining about “being robbed”. All bets are off inside of that Chamber, so I just did what I had to do. You win by hook or by crook, that’s how it goes. Who the fuck cares if your shoulder wasn’t down or whatever you’re crying about? You lost. The bell rang and the referee’s decision was final. Is your ass really this mad just ‘cause you lost ANOTHER title match? Not my fault you weren’t ready for this.

(SOSA finally enters the ring, walking up to Terry. Terry’s clearly frustrated, but SOSA keeps that same grin on his face as he continues to speak.)

SOSA Henderson: I told all of y’all that I was walking outta Road to Redemption the same way I was walking in. I told y’all that I was gonna retain the EAW Championship no matter what, and now look at you. Now you’re out here bitching and moaning over a match where anything goes. That’s your own fault for even being in that position. Maybe if you were as big and bad as you pretend to be every week you would have actually won the title. I’ve outsmarted each and every opponent I’ve been presented with throughout this reign, from Rex McAllister to Ahren Fournier to an entire Extreme Elimination Chamber. You can’t handle being at the top like me and that’s why you’re not the one holding this title. I’ve been able to get past each and every obstacle thrown my way, and at this point can’t nobody fuck with the King of Philly! I’ve already beaten the “best” Voltage has to offer, so I don’t care who the fick is put in front of me no more. I’mma continue to come out on top because I’m that damn good.

Terry Chambers: Alright, alright. You know what SOSA? That’s fine. You’re right, the referee’s decision is final. I did lose another World Championship match, meanwhile you’ve defeated everyone that’s stepped up to face you. I’m hearing a lot of talking, but if ANY of what you’re saying is true then you should have no problem giving me the rematch I deserve. You know that match should not have ended how it did, so what’s it gonna be SOSA? Are you going to put your money where your mouth is or are you going to keep being a little bitch?

(The virtual crowd begins to cheer after hearing Terry’s words, meanwhile SOSA takes a second to think to himself. Despite being face to face, SOSA doesn’t lose the smirk he has. Instead he begins laughing, and soon he begins to speak once again.)

SOSA Henderson: I don’t know if you forgot, but we kinda already have things planned for tonight. I’ll tell you what though, since I’m such a fighting Champion. You want your rematch? I’ll give it to you. Terry Chambers versus SOSA Henderson for the EAW Championship is gonna happen, and it’ll happen at KING OF ELITE!

(The virtual crowd cheers hearing this announcement, and Terry looks pleased to hear it too.)

Terry Chambers: That’s exactly what I wanted to hear. See you soon, “Champ”.

(Terry extends his hand out for a handshake, and SOSA stops and just looks at his hand for a second. Finally, SOSA raises his own hand and looks to shake Terry’s.)

James Peters: WAIT A SECOND!! SOSA HENDERSON JUST SUPERKICKED TERRY CHAMBERS! Terry had went for a handshake and I thought SOSA was going to shake his hand, but instead SOSA pulled Terry into a huge superkick! I’m not sure if SOSA made the right choice there, Terry Chambers is not someone you want to piss off!

Rich Russillo: Did you see what SOSA just did to him? SOSA dropped Terry with that superkick, I think the Champion will be just fine. SOSA’s right, he managed to overcome every challenge put in front of him so far. I don’t see how this could be any different.

Persephone: I can’t believe this garbage title reign is still going.. And Terry is gonna fight for it next? Might as well burn that useless belt.

(‘Faneto’ begins to play once again, and the virtual crowd begins to boo heavily. SOSA shakes his head as he looks down at Terry Chambers, before taking the EAW Championship off from around his waist and holding it over him. As SOSA holds up the EAW Championship, Voltage begins to fade away from ringside and into a commercial break.)

(Commercial promoting the rapper Playboi Carti’s album “Whole Lotta Red” featuring Bronson Daniels, who tries to convince Dynasty’s Serena Bennett to listen to it, but to no avail. Probably should’ve named it Whole Lotta Blue :lupe:.)

(‘Born for This’ by Paramore starts playing as Holly Arrow is seen running to the ring with a big smile on her face as everyone is cheering for her. The ring introductions start.)

Bella Braxton: This match is scheduled for ONE FALL!

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: And it is to determine the number one contender for the Specialist Championship. Introducing first, from Gold Coast Australia, weighing in at 151, she is Extraordinary, HOLLY ARRRRROWWWW!!!!

Rich Russillo: Here is someone to talk about for the topic of improvements.

James Peters: At the Swedish-Saudi Christmas Miracle, she failed to beat Eris LeCava. However, facing Eris LeCava is already enough to show growth in her career.

Persephone: Eh, if she won, that’d be better.

James Peters: This is Eris LeCava we’re talking about. She’s almost a legend.

Rich Russillo: We all know how much Holly Arrow wants to face Kasey Kaos for the Specialists Championship.

Persephone: It’s not like her opponent doesn’t want to do the same thing. Isn’t that OBVIOUS enough?

James Peters: Alright, then.

Persephone: To be honest, if I was Holly Arrow I’d also be too confident. Because my opponent is someone that I could beat even with my eyes closed.

Rich Russillo: Damn.

(As Holly Arrow is getting ready in the middle of the ring, :”Feel It Still” [instrumental] by Portugal the Man starts playing as her opponent is out for the battle. Lisa Wren appears with a depressed look on her face.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent, making her way to the ring. From British Columbia, Canada. Weighing in at 130 pounds, she is LISA WRENN!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: Don’t you think Bella Braxton got unenthusiastic there?

Rich Russillo: I heard just a small introduction for Lisa Wren. But for Holly Arrow, she went for a long call for the Arrow part of her name.

Persephone: I don’t know about you guys but I believe that people in Voltage could be… rac-.

James Peters: Don’t start. You’re going to ruin it.

Persephone: Fine.

James Peters: Lisa Wren probably looks depressed as she was giving an interesting performance in the Extreme Elimination Chamber match for the Specialists Championship at Road to Redemption.

Persephone: What happened to her was sad, she needs to finally get her own redemption.

Rich Russillo: If she can win this, that’ll be perfect for her own good.

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: The match started with Lisa Wren running wild onto her opponent but Holly Arrow got her locked in a normal headlock, Lisa escapes and throws Holly to the ropes, Holly jumped off it and tried to execute a Tornado DDT but Lisa Wren caught her with the Front Chancery mid way through.

Rich Russillo: However, Holly Arrow got away and an uppercut attempt was done by Lisa Wren and she went with a German Suplex but Holly Arrow managed to land straight on her feet as she went to the turnbuckle. Lisa ran to her but Holly escaped and Lisa collapsed with the turnbuckle.

Persephone: Lisa ran. Smart.

James Peters: Holly Arrow attempted a Dropkick but she missed her target and kicked the turnbuckle instead. She falls flat on her face and Lisa Wren attempts a Sleeper but she gets pushed to the ropes and Holly Arrow attacks her with some chops to her chest. Holly ran to the ropes, ready for a Lariat but Lisa Wren ducked and went with a Superkick, ducked by The Diamond Darling and Holly with an Enzuigiri to her opponent!

Rich Russillo: As Lisa Wren is almost down, Holly Arrow is ready to attempt a Superkick but Lisa Wren caught her ankle and Holly falls down, Ankle Lock almost locked in but Holly Arrow rolled over and stood on the ropes while Lisa Wren was standing there. Holly Arrow with a quick attempt at a cheap shot to the face but Lisa caught her arms and a wrist lock is done, Lisa Wren punched Holly Arrow in her gut and Holly was struggling with the lock but she was close to the ropes so the referee asked Lisa to break it up.

Persephone: She almost lost because of a wrist lock?

Rich Russillo: Not that she was losing but it definitely looked like a lot of damage. Lisa is asked to go to a turnbuckle while Holly is exactly on the opposite side, they both locked up and quickly, the advantage is obvious towards Holly. Holly quickly throws Lisa to the ropes and she gets her out with a Lariat but still both of them only landed on the apron.

James Peters: Both of them got up and they went with multiple elbows to each other’s faces. Holly tried to throw Lisa down there but instead, Lisa grabbed her hair and Holly Arrow was down! Lisa Wren with an Elbow Drop from the apron right to Holly Arrow!

Persephone: Ouch.

Rich Russillo: A correct reaction that deserved having you on a Buzzfeed video. Lisa Wren also got down to inflict even more damage to her opponent as she is sending up shots to Holly Arrow’s head. Holly Arrow is seen grabbing it in pain as she had to let Lisa Wren get most damages in. Lisa throws her to the steps but OH, she bounced off it and she got into the ring. Lisa Wren also followed and Holly Arrow with a fully charged Hurricanrana sending Lisa Wren down but she’s back up again. Holly Arrow was quick with a Jumping Forearm Smash but Lisa Wren ducked.

James Peters: Lisa Wren quickly Superkicked her from the back of her head and she is holding onto a turnbuckle. Lisa Wren quick with some chops to Holly Arrow before throwing her to the other side of the turnbuckle but Holly Arrow jumped off the steps and Lisa Wren ran to her Tornado DDT and both of them fell to the floor!

Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren is seen grabbing her back after that pain while Holly Arrow is probably unconscious due to the landing of her head on the floor. Lisa Wren tried her best to get up, some seconds went by.

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

James Peters: She is still struggling as her hands are already on the steps.

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

Rich Russillo: In before the third count she’s finally standing up again and she goes to Lisa Wren and Holly is thrown into the ring. Lisa Wren goes to the turnbuckle, she is posing and another Elbow Drop was done but Holly moved out the way and Lisa Wren felt the damage on her arm!

James Peters: She tried her best to ignore it as she grabbed Holly Arrow for another German Suplex, she almost threw Holly with it but her hands can’t help and she ended up letting The Extraordinary go. Lisa Wren tried to chop even more but Holly Arrow pushed her down.

Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren tried to do a Kip Up but she failed, that is a funny moment, she tried flying and landing but she can only fly and land on her back. Holly Arrow quickly grabbed her legs and a Boston Crab was done.

James Peters: That was pretty much a sad sequence for Lisa Wren because it looked like she might have to tap out to this submission lock because this goes on for pretty long. She is crawling her way to the ropes and her legs managed to push Holly Arrow away. However, she stood on the turnbuckle and Holly Arrow was quick with a Stinger’s Splash! Snapmare and a kick to the back of the head to Lisa Wren. Holly Arrow with another headlock but Lisa Wren managed to stand up with Holly Arrow on her back, this is an act of a father and son and they’re recreating.

Persephone: I didn’t have these things in my childhood.

Rich Russillo: …….

James Peters: Lisa Wren jumped on her back on purpose and Holly Arrow got her back bones squashed! Holly grabbed her back but it’s clear that Lisa Wren has the advantage. She quickly got Holly in a DDT position but Holly escaped and a bunch of chops were sent in Lisa’s way. Holly throws her to the ropes and a Lariat is done to Lisa Wren! Holly Arrow goes running and a Jumping Senton is done, Lisa Wren caught her with the knees! Holly Arrow flew with a bad landing!

Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren goes to a turnbuckle while Holly Arrow is trying her best to stand on the ropes. However, Lisa Wren was the fast one and she gets Holly Arrow with an ambush, they’re both on the apron!

James Peters: Now that they’re both on the apron, Lisa Wren got Holly Arrow up but Holly managed to grab her by the foot! Holly Arrow quickly got the hold, Lisa was thrown to the turnbuckle after a Slingshot. Holly Arrow throws her back to where she belongs!

Persephone: In the h-

Rich Russillo: In the ring. Holly Arrow goes to the top rope as she is ready to execute her next move, she is already preparing herself for her signature move, The Diamond Destroyer. Lisa Wren is up, Holly Arrow jumped and Lisa countered with a Spinebuster! Lisa Wren quickly went to her and delivered a couple of good ol classic punches!

James Peters: Lisa Wren isn’t waiting any longer as she is really hyping herself up! She throws Holly Arrow to the turnbuckle. She ran to her, Dropkick and Holly Arrow almost falls in front but Lisa Wren caught her and delivered her away with a Front Chancery but of course Holly Arrow escapes!

Persephone: They kept having counters and counters, can’t they stop? This isn’t gymnastics.

James Peters: Holly Arrow quickly throws Lisa to the ropes but Lisa countered and Holly ended up collapsing with the turnbuckle! Lisa Wren is having this match on her favor. She quickly goes with a Running Dropkick to the back of The Diamond Darling. Lisa Wren is pretty much leading at this point, she quickly turns Holly Arrow around but Holly went with a slap to her face!

Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren doesn’t like this at all, she felt disrespected as to why she is giving out the hardest sounding chops here! Lisa Wren doesn’t stop there, she also goes with a couple of elbows but Holly Arrow responds with the same manuevers!

Persephone: They are both tired at this point.

James Peters: They should be. This is too much effort from both of them but it looks like Lisa Wren got the advantage and they are both on the top of the turnbuckle, Lisa Wren is ready for a Superplex, but Holly is resisting! She is putting too much effort and she is not letting Lisa Wren take this.

Persephone: She can’t do it. No.

Rich Russillo: They are both still trading elbows and they’re not stopping until someone gets down and lose to the 3 count. However, Lisa is on hold, A STRAIGHT PUNCH BY HOLLY, HOLLY JUMPED ON TOP, CANADIAN DESTROYER FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!! Holly Arrow quickly lies on top of Lisa Wren for the cover. This needs to be it, if it’s not, I don’t know what should be the end to this.

Referee: ONE!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!! THR-

Persephone: Lisa Wren with that power of equality!

Rich Russillo: How did she do that?! That is unbelievable.

James Peters: I mean, it’s not Holly Arrow’s biggest move anyways so it’s not a surprise that Lisa Wren can kick out of it.

Rich Russillo: But still, the impact of a flying Canadian Destroyer is pretty crazy. You flew from the top rope and you land on your head. You could’ve had amnesia!

Persephone: I don’t think that’s how science work.

James Peters: By the way, Holly Arrow is on the corner, setting up something. She looks desperate as if she really needs this victory.

Persephone: It’s for a title!

Rich Russillo: She is indeed ready for this, the Holly Arrow plane is ready to take off! Lisa Wren is up and Holly Arrow charged. PART II TO LISA WREN!!!!! Holly Arrow pins, this must be it!

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

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… HOLLY ARROW!!!!!!

James Peters: Kasey Kaos better watch out because Holly Arrow is on her way to beat him!

Rich Russillo: Her career is just 1 FPV long, yet she already got a shot.

Persephone: I’m impressed. However, let’s also say good luck next time to Lisa Wren. She needs to know that I don’t hate her.

James Peters: She did great for herself but Holly Arrow was the definitive winner after all.

Rich Russillo: I guess that’s a fact and now it’s official. Kasey Kaos. Holly Arrow. Specialists Championship.

(‘Born For This’ by Paramore was playing as the referee raised Holly Arrow’s hand. Lisa Wren remains unconscious as Holly Arrow gives out a goodbye pose before she looks at the camera. She told Kasey Kaos that she is coming, and she’ll be the one to end her reign.)

(The scene opens backstage where we see Kensingten Calhoun-Astor walking through the hallway, and she stops at a door that reads “Captain Charisma.” She gets ready to open the door, but she is interrupted.)

???: How does it?

(A victorious Holly Arrow walks into the frame, cutting off Kensingten from entering the office.)

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Ugh, what do you want?

Holly Arrow: You catch that out there? I have a chance to become a champion this early on in my career!

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Oh nice, you get to be Kasey’s play toy. Now if you would please excuse me…

Holly Arrow: Aww, is someone a little bit mad?

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: NO! Why can’t you ever just mind your own business?

(Kensingten then without knocking then barges into Captain Charisma’s office. Captain Charisma is on the phone talking with somebody, and he notices Kensingten coming in heated with Holly following her.)

Captain Charisma: I’ll have to call you back.

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: We need to talk! Why was “she” given a chance to fight for the Specialists Championship, and not me?

Captain Charisma: Well–

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I’m sick and tired of this! You need to make this right!

Holly Arrow: Likely because I bring more value to the brand making an impact as quick as I have? Maybe I have a better upside than you?

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Mr. Charisma, I did better than HER at Road to Redemption! How does it make sense she got the shot over me?!

(Holly Arrow can’t help but laugh at this plea from Kensi.)

Captain Charisma: Yes, you did have a better finish than Holly. And you’re right that you should have caught the eye of an authority figure.

(Kensingten puts her hands on her hips.)

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Wonderful! You are gonna fix th–

Captain Charisma: You didn’t let me finish…the SHOWDOWN general manager, Ryan Wilson.

(It dawns on both Holly and Kensingten what he’s about to say.)

Holly Arrow: HAH!! You’re being traded! :blessed:

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: This unprofessionalism by this woman! Is this who you want potentially representing the Specialists Championship?

Captain Charisma: She’s right. As you saw last night on Showdown, Sierra Bradford was traded here to Voltage, and she was traded in exchange for you, Kensingten.

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: gasp

Captain Charisma: I appreciate your efforts here, and I know you’re gonna do great things on the blue brand.

(Kensi is speechless, not knowing how to react to this news.)

Captain Charisma: As for you Holly. Congratulations on your win. I have news for you too!

Holly Arrow: Oh no, please don;t tell me I’m part of the deal and going with her?

Captain Charisma: No, not at all.

Holly Arrow: Oh thank goodness. :whew:

Captain Charisma: I wanna tell you that you’re not gonna have to wait to get your crack at Kasey and the title. Because you are going to challenge her for the Specialists Championship…NEXT WEEK!

(Holly’s eyes widen.)

Holly Arrow: Wow! I wasn’t expecting to have the title match this early on, but I’m ready for the challenge and I’m gonna do whatever it takes to take that title off of Kasey! Thank you for the chance!

Captain Charisma: Both of you ladies are excused.

(Kensingten lets out a grunt as she turns around a bit annoyed as Holly turns around with her and the both head for the exit together.)

Holly Arrow: Have fun on Showdo–

(Both Holly and Kensi are blindsided by the brand new team “IDOL-GUN, Miku and Hikari, and they are pummeling down on both women. Miku then picks up Kensingten and throws her into a pile of steel poles and she falls to the floor. They then turn their attention to Holly Arrow.)

(Hikari is beating down Holly as Miku motions to lift her up off the concrete. And now Hikari picks up Holly and lifts her up in the hammerlock, and then Miku connects with “Night Night.” They calls this “OnlyEnds.”)

Hikari Kanno: ほんの始まりです!エクストリームさんとコンスタンツさんは後で怒りを感じるでしょう! (It’s only the beginning! Ms. Extreme and Constance will feel the wrath later on!)

(The women then laugh and shout some things in Japanese, before Captain Charisma comes to the office door and security then comes in breaking it up before IDOL-GUN can do any more damage. Captain Charisma is calling for help for both Kensingten and Holly Arrow.)

Captain Charisma: Let’s get some help over here!

Rich Russillo: Talk about making a statement.

(The scene then fades away from the backstage area, and to a commercial break.)

(Commercial for Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s Math classes where you learn how to count ballots but take away all votes that aren’t for Trump.)

(‘God Bless America’ by Arch Rival starts playing as the newly debuting star, Honor Guard goes out and runs to the ring. Once he arrived, he quickly posed on the top rope, showing off with a pose.)

Bella Braxton: This match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from The Capital City, weighing in 261 pounds, he is The Last Bastion of Liberty, HONOR GUARD!!!!!!

James Peters: What we are looking at right now is a new talent.

Persephone: Oh great. Another Christian DeMarco?

Rich Russillo: He won’t be that bad. I mean, he is going to debut against an established competitor. That’s big enough for him.

James Peters: He looks like a real American to me.

Rich Russillo: He does look like a real damn American!

Persephone: From what I looked at from some information place, he is indeed a super patriot.

James Peters: Being patriotic is good. Definitely.

Rich Russillo: Oh, 100 percent.

Persephone: Can’t wait to see what happens with this guy.

James Peters: If he can win this, I’m sure he would be proud of what he has achieved.

Rich Russillo: I don’t think this is much of a big deal.

James Peters: It’s a debut after all. And in a debut, you must look good.

(‘Hell on Heels’ by Pistol Annies starts playing as it’s time for Guard’s opponent to do her entrance. Full of class, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor walks to the ring with a catwalk that is only done by models. Very sassy indeed.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent, from Savannah, Georgia. Weighing in at 143 pounds, she is The First Lady, KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR!!!!!!

James Peters: So, Kensingten is probably the attraction for this match because she is the one known while Honor Guard is trying to prove himself.

Rich Russillo: This is not like a sure loss for Honor Guard, he could have a chance to show why he’s promising!

Persephone: If she doesn’t beat him in a squash, maybe the power of patriotisme is going to help him.

Rich Russillo: He’ll do it in the name of America!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: The match is underway and it was quick as Kensingten quickly got Guard down after a Lariat, but it looks like he stood up before Kensingten launched herself into him on the turnbuckle. He escaped and Kensingten collapsed with the turnbuckle. Guard tried to throw her to the ropes but she got the better of him and he was the one thrown to the ropes, Kensingten with a Big Boot attempt but Guard ducked and went out of the ring.

Rich Russillo: What is he doing down there? He possibly is trying to steal some time as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor quickly chases him off and she also goes out of the ring, here is pretty much the recreation of the famous Woogieman chasing Strawberry Steve scene!

James Peters: However, Honor Guard quickly got into the ring, Kensingten followed and she got locked in a normal headlock.

Persephone: What are with these wrestlers and headlocks?!

Rich Russillo: I guess there is a certain obsession when you combine the two topics together. Kensingten is pushing Guard to the turnbuckle but Guard held on and finally he let go.

James Peters: Guard and Kensingten traded some glares before they restarted their bout, this time with Guard on control. Guard got her locked with a normal lock but she rolled off and the submission was cancelled, they went with another lockup, this time with Kensingten Calhoun-Astor owning up to her mistakes. Kensingten got Guard, it looks like she has caught him….

Persephone:….. Off guard.

Rich Russillo: Kensingten with a fast one on Honor Guard, a DDT down and Kensingten goes for another wrist lock, this time since spun gave the advantage a little bit more towards Honor Guard. He escaped the move and executed a Dropkick to Kensingten and she was pushed to the ropes.

James Peters: Honor Guard quickly delivered some chops to Kensingten as she got nowhere to go. After sending out 4 shots, Honor Guard charged himself from the back as he was going to launch Kensingten outside but Kensingten was faster and Honor Guard was thrown to the outside!

Rich Russillo: Kensingten was quick as after the throw she quickly went outside and tried to throw Honor Guard to the steps but he kept resisting. As Kensingten failed another attempt, she flew after Honor Guard caught her with a surprise Biel Throw and Kensingten landed on the steps!

James Peters: Honor Guard quickly realizes that this is an opportunity he can’t waste. He quickly grabbed Kensingten by the head but Kensingten goes with a Jawbreaker so his opportunity has come to waste!

Persephone: Gee…. It’s not like I care.

Rich Russillo: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor caught Honor Guard in the Sleeper Hold but Honor jumped on himself and Kensingten’s back is exposed to the floor again! Kensingten can feel all that damage and I’m sure you don’t want to feel what she is feeling right now.

James Peters: All I know right now is that Honor Guard is giving out a normal performance, he doesn’t get his ass kicked easily and he straight up dominated Kensingten Calhoun-Astor for a good amount of time. We need to respect that for a new competitor.

Rich Russillo: Honor Guard quickly throws her back into the ring and as he slides back, Kensingten quickly rolls over and a roll up is done!

Referee: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: Fast kick out by Honor Guard and he’s standing up by himself! Kensingten also gets up and she runs to Guard, it looked like a big mistake because she got caught in the Uranage! However, after the landing, she bounced and managed to stand up again, this time dizzy so Guard just delivered a big Stingers’ Splash! Honor Guard with some chops to the chest of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, he let her go and went to the middle of the ring, he did a salute!

Rich Russillo: Now that is a real American!

Persephone: Is he being serious right now?

Rich Russillo: I guess he was indeed. He quickly goes to Kensingten and she is thrown to the turnbuckle, she jumps to the top, a Diving Crossbody to Honor Guard but Guard caught her! Oh no, this doesn’t look good for The Steel Magnolia of Elite Answers Wrestling! Honor Guard got her on the powerbomb position, she was thrown to the corner! Honor Guard goes to the top rope as the walking Kensingten remains unconscious, Missile Dropkick to The First Lady!

James Peters: Kip up by The Super Soldier as he can be seen locking Kensingten Calhoun-Astor with a Single Leg Boston Crab! Kensingten quickly crawled her way to the ropes.

Rich Russillo: Honor Guard let go of the submission as Kensingten can be seen standing up on a corner. Both of them were up and Kensingten was chased by Guard but she was fast, Kensingten instead caught Guard and he was thrown to the ropes, Lariat ducked, German Suplex attempt by Guard failed, Overhead Belly to Back Suplex by Kensingten Calhoun-Astor!

James Peters: However, Honor Guard has also stood up very fast, Kensingten with an attempt to send him out of the ring, however Honor Guard landed on the apron, Kensingten tried to clothesline him out but she failed. Honor got a hold, SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE!

Rich Russillo: Guard quickly goes up and grabbed Kensingten and she is thrown to the steps but she managed to jump off it and she ran back into the ring and Honor Guard was distracted, Tope Con Hilo by The Steel Magnolia of Elite Answers Wrestling!

James Peters: Kensingten quickly throws Honor Guard back into the ring. She goes to the top rope, Heart of Dixie is ready to be shown as Honor Guard can be seen lying there! Kensingten flew in the sky but Honor Guard moved out of the way and Kensingten ended up stomping nobody! Honor Guard quickly goes to her and Kensingten gets destroyed with a fast Big Boot by Honor Guard! He got her up and he tried to throw her to the turnbuckle!

Rich Russillo: However, Kensingten got the upper hand instead and she was the one throwing Guard over to the turnbuckle, however Guard is aware of what’s happening and he quickly countered Kensingten, they spun a lot as the moves changed owners and now Guard throws Kensingten to the turnbuckle! Guard ran to the turnbuckle for a splash, he missed. Kensingten quickly goes for some elbow strikes and a few kicks were given to the low part of Guard’s body.

James Peters: One punch, another and another before an uppercut is executed! Kensingten really is different tonight which shows that a new year can bring someone new hope! Even though she lost at Road to Redemption, she would get even better right now!

Persephone: I mean, maybe.

Rich Russillo: Kensingten tried to throw Honor Guard back to the ropes and they both do ran from opposite sides and Kensingten attacked with a Handstand Headscissors Takedown but Honor Guard landed perfectly on one corner as he quickly charged to Kensingten for a Big Boot, The First Lady ducked and Kensingten looked back at her opponent, he is throwing his hand for Lariat and Kensingten ducked again!

James Peters: Kensingten tried to charge to the front again but she needs to be careful! Honor Guard caught her with a sleeper lock but when Kensingten turned around, she gave out her own version of the Spinebuster!

Rich Russillo: However, Kensingten can’t stop as she kept giving shots after shots to the newly debuted star, Honor Guard! The referee asked her to back off and she did! However, as Honor Guard is getting up, The Steel Magnolia of Elite Answers Wrestling quickly got him up and she is going for the Electric Chair Driver or known as Bless Your Heart, it connected!

James Peters: Kensingten turned him round and she is, what exactly is she doing right now?

Persephone: She is kicking and elbowing his back!

Rich Russillo: OH! I THINK I KNOW IT!

James Peters: She is paying Guard what he gave her from the start, the damage to her back unstoppably! The referee asked her to stay at the corner. She goes to the turnbuckle, she is real mad now! She is trash talking Honor Guard and she isn’t waiting for long! As soon as Honor Guard got up, SHE QUICKLY LOCKED IN THE KATA HA JIME, A LITTLE TOUCH OF SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY! Honor Guard can’t take it anymore, he passed out? HE DID!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR!

James Peters: The First Lady showed us why she’s called what she’s called. Her performance was classy, it was a beautiful showing and she managed to pick up the victory.

Rich Russillo: For a debut, Honor Guard can be seen controlling half of the match so instead of getting embarrassed, he should be proud of what he did!

Persephone: Only children will say that they don’t care about losses and instead good performance matters.

James Peters: I mean, for a rookie, he is still ready for upcoming challenges. We can’t act like he can’t do anything, he almost won!

Rich Russillo: I agree and this kid should definitely be in the lookout for the future!

Persephone: Guys. Honor Guard didn’t win this, go celebrate the winner instead!

James Peters: What more can be said about Kensingten Calhoun-Astor? She is the full package of a wrestler and I think this match already proved why she is known as The Steel Magnolia of Elite Answers Wrestling.

(‘Hell on Heels’ by Pistol Annies echoes throughout the arena as the referee raised Kensingten’s hand, as she puts one foot on top of Honor Guard in a pure act of disrespect. She got a perfect smile on her face, she knew that she destroyed Honor Guard. After Kensingten Calhoun-Astor left the ring, the medical team checked on Honor Guard in case there were injuries.)

(We transition through to an area of the backstage that’s quiet as much as it is reserved, like a sanctuary if you will where nothing special went on nor stuck out, almost as if it were forgotten altogether. The lighting was dimmer here than in other places, but there was still something here that you couldn’t find anywhere else. Here, but forgotten. Fittingly this place was the perfect setting, as it described the EAW wrestling career of a once rising star that had plenty of potential to go as far as she wanted to go before she set forth a butterfly effect unlike any other that saw her hit rock bottom months ago at Bloodsport, leaving said career in question. Constance Blevins was that rising star with plenty of potential, left now to answer the question of what exactly is there left. Her light, once very bright is now dim, it flickers. The shot then transitions to a stairwell at the top of the first level, where we see Constance Blevins standing with her arms resting along the rails. She’s clothed in a red halter top underneath a black leather jacket with matching leather pants and boots. Her long dark brown locks hang down past her shoulders, with a layer hanging over her right eye that’s fully covered by a black patch. Her expression is an indifferent one, somber as she manages to speak to the EAW audience for the first time in months.)

Constance Blevins: Well…never thought I’d ever see this place again. Lots has changed since the last time I spoke in front of one of these things. Professing independence, promising revivals. Four months ago I found myself trying to make a name out of myself. Myself. But…just like at other points right through the course of my career I found out just how hard that can be. It’s not been an easy thing to do when all I’ve basically been known as is being a member of a group that was never built strong enough to last, or as simply the worser half of a tag team that nobody really saw as anything special that should be pushed. That was all supposed to change this season when I was drafted by Voltage, but due to the festering anger and the rage that I held inside of me, that bitterness that I kept bottled up, I let it consume me whole by the time Bloodsport came around. I lost more than some Tai Pei Deathmatch, I’d lost myself, losing everything that made me me. That fateful night, the one that will forever live in infamy for as long as I choose to go on in EAW, it still haunts me. This patch I wear over my eye is always a reminder of it.

(She brushes away the layer of her hair that hung over her eye patch, pausing for a moment so the cameras could catch a close up of the eye patch over her eye that was mangled at Bloodsport in her deathmatch against Sienna Jade.)

Constance Blevins: I was exiled, sent home. Heavily anesthetized for the longest time that night removing small fragmented shards, spending many weeks bed-ridden to heal from the heinous attack by Sienna that’s left me like this….left me to be forgotten, forced to rethink everything and where it went wrong, or even if I would ever be able to get any of it back again. Guess my cameo at Road To Redemption partly answered one of those thoughts didn’t it? For months since Bloodsport I’ve watched and listened as that callous, cold-hearted, malevolent, little bitch bragged about her successful conquest that became the final straw that broke the camel’s back. Thinking that she’d ended me for good, done this place a real favor she believed, but she didn’t get the job done. She messed up, she was reckless, sloppy, had been for some time and at Road To Redemption she paid for it, but the price was far from right. Did it feel good to put the finishing touches on Minerva’s work by taking Sienna out? As far as I’m concerned, what I did to Sienna Jade could’ve been done a thousand times over and it still wouldn’t ever be enough when comparing the way she tried to end my career. The way she defaced me.

(There is now a hint of a frustration on her face as she looks down over the rail of the stairwell, thinking of what Sienna had done to her, and more so what she herself had done that derailed her own career.)

Constance Blevins: I’m never gonna be someone whose face is meant to show up on banners, billboards, posters, and all the gaudy merchandise all the time. I’m not ever going to be the Barbie doll flavor of the month or fashion model that’s constantly campaigning for endless amounts of TV time through self-promotion to be remembered as just another cheap imitation of many of others who came before me. That’s never gonna be me. Those announcers can try their damnedest to hype up my return, hype up me and Minerva’s reunion like we’re going back to what we did the season before on Showdown where we were looking for respect, looking to be noticed. We’ve moved on past that. Minerva has found her own success. She’s done a lot in two years, and I’m happy for her success. I’ll always be there for her, I’ll always have her back when she needs me. But I’m after so much more.

Constance Blevins: It’s hard to be remembered for anything good when you’re the cause of your own undoing, and very easy to be forgotten about when you’re not here to make any kind of an impact at all. I’m back to find my own success in this company, be it beating big names, winning titles, stealing the glory of others. One way or another I will make it happen. I’ll start from scratch again, as crazy as that may sound. I’ll do another career reload if that’s what it takes and I will find my way out of the long arduous struggle to that success, because as I’ve said… I’ve no longer got anything else to lose. I’ve been forgotten, and I’ve lost a lot…but I haven’t lost everything. And everything you’ve forgotten about me? I’ll remember, and I’ll make sure to never let you forget again.

(Constance turns her attention toward the camera and stares a hole into it, nothing but the same indifference and somber expression from before as the shot fades out.)

(“Gangsta” by New Years Day plays through the speakers of the World 1 Theatre as the crowd gives a positive reaction as Ms. Extreme comes out with a confident swagger on her face. If Ms. Extreme was upset over the result of her match at Road to Redemption, she wasn’t showing it at all because she wears a huge smile on her face.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA… SHE IS ‘THE RED QUEEN’… MS. EXTREME!!!!!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme faced Serena Bennett at Road to Redemption for the Universal Women’s Champion. She was moments away from winning the title until a returning Eris LeCava made her presence known and helped Serena Bennett retain the championship.

Rich Russillo: I was surprised to see Eris LeCava return. I had my heart on Camille winning the title, but she has nothing to be ashamed about her performance at Road to Redemption. She showed why she should be in World title matches and possibly a World Champion in 2021.

Persephone: Oh god, the adopted one is inside the ring and she just asked for a microphone. Do I need to cover my ears?

James Peters: Ms. Extreme did request some time to speak before her match with a debuting Hikari Kanno, so I’m wondering what she’s about to see.

(“Gangsta” dies down as Ms. Extreme is standing in the middle of the ring with a microphone in her hand. The virtual crowd is clapping and cheering before Ms. Extreme speaks.)

Ms. Extreme: First off, I might as well address the big elephant in the room and that’s I couldn’t capture the Universal Women’s Championship. At Road to Redemption, I had that fugly looking bitch in position for the Redrum. I was this close to capturing the Universal Women’s Championship from her, but a disgraced Vixen from EAW circa 2015 decided to stick her nose into my match and hand our champion a victory on a silver platter. Now, that bitch can talk all this shit about how she came out of the match with her pitiful reign still intact, but looking at the expression on her hideous face, she was confused about the result because she knows that she shouldn’t be the Universal Women’s Champion. She knows that her reign should have ended at Road to Redemption and she should be thanking whatever god she believes or even Eris LeCava that she’s still champion, but I can assure everyone that the champion will get the karma that she rightfully deserves. I’m not angry about the result. I really don’t give a fuck about how Road to Redemption went for me.

Ms. Extreme: If I had to feel some sort of emotion for how Road to Redemption went for me, it’s amusement. I’m amused that for all the stupid shit Serena talks, she still couldn’t get the job done. She couldn’t pun or submit Ms. Extreme. I should be surprised, but in the words of Nate Diaz: I’m not surprised motherfucker. It doesn’t surprise me because I’ve already proven that I am the superior athlete. Road to Redemption was not to prove anything to Serena because I don’t give a fuck about her. I proved that that I am heads and shoulders above the competition and what the fuck did Road to Redemption prove? MS. EXTREME IS STILL BETTER THAN YOU! Serena, you heard that bitch. Good, because you need to get that point driven across your skull until you get that point. But, back to talking to you all.

Ms. Extreme: It’s one of the reasons why I am the superior athlete to the Universal Women’s Champion. People are expecting how I would respond to the loss at Road to Redemption, but I am going to do what I’ve done with all the losses and setbacks that I’ve faced this season and that’s by carrying on regardless of the situation. You’re not going to see me duck anyone or shy away from challenges. I’ve always looked at the challenges and embraced them. I’ve always looked them dead in the eye and prepared myself for whatever impact that challenges will have in my wrestling career. I don’t care about what man or woman who stands in front of me, but they shouldn’t perceive me as someone who will back down from a fight. I’ll be coming at them guns blazing and ready for their shots.

Ms. Extreme: Now, people are wondering about where I go following my loss at Road to Redemption? It really didn’t take much for me to think about, but I can assure everyone that my dreams of being a World Champion are far from dead. In fact, being aware of how close that Universal Women’s Championship was to me, it’s made me hungrier than ever. I don’t know or care how I get to my first World Championship, but I am going to dive into any opportunity that comes my way. That’s why I am thrilled to get another crack at King of Elite this year. I had my chances of being “King Camille” crushed by an evil doctor, so I am really going to be excited about getting another opportunity at reaching that finals. One of the things that I am really going to look forward to when I win King of Elite is having everyone bow to me and refer to me as King Camille.

Ms. Extreme: Before I move on with all of that, I need to focus on my match in a matter of moments, but it’s nothing that I’m really sweating about. I’m not nervous about facing Hikari Kanno. From the exchanges that we’ve had this week, nothing about this bitch has impressed me. I am far from impressed with IDOL-GUN and it’s tragic that they attacked Holly and Kensi backstage just a few moments ago. In fact, it’s kind of pathetic to make your statement by attacking relevant nobodies. Am I supposed to be intimidated? Am I supposed to be shaking in my boots about facing a faded Japanese idol? Someone who believes that they can use my spotlight for their own? That’s now how things work around here, but I am the perfect candidate to let her know how things work on Voltage and she’ll be learning first hand going into this match. Yeah, I get that Miku Saki will be a factor in this match, but I can take on both of those bitches if needed. If there is anyone that could give Hikari that welcome that she thinks someone like her is deserving of, it’s me and I can assure her that she’ll be welcomed to Voltage the hard way.

(As Ms. Extreme waits in the ring, Voltage fades into a promotional ad for King of Elite, EAW’s next free-per-view event.)

(Ms. Extreme readies herself in the ring for her next match as “Dream and Drive” by The Oral Cigarettes plays throughout the arena and the debuting Hikari Kanno steps from the curtain alongside Miku Sakai and the duo makes their way down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for..ONE FALL!!

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Bella Braxton: Making her way down to the ring! Accompanied by Miku Sakai, hailing from Okinawa, Japan, weighing in at 121 pounds…HIKARI KANNO!!!

James Peters: Here comes the debuting Hikari Kanno, someone who has a major opportunity ahead of her tonight as she takes someone on the caliber of Ms. Extreme. And I have to ask, if you’re Ms. Extreme, how do you prepare for someone like Hikari here?

Rich Russillo: I honestly don’t know, Hikari has never stepped in an EAW ring before now so you don’t have anything to scout, and you don’t really have anything to go off of.

James Peters: Plus, you have to keep a keen eye on Miku Sakai who’s on the outside. Tonight will certainly be a testament to not only Hikari’s skills but Ms. Extreme’s as well.

Persephone: If she can’t beat someone that’s barely stepped in a wrestling ring before, that’s pathetic if you ask me. :mjpls:

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: There’s the bell and this match is underway! Both competitors start off with the traditional collar-and-elbow tie-up where it’s Hikari Kanno who’s gets the early advantage by trapping Ms. Extreme in a side headlock. But Ms. Extreme already has an answer and bounces Hikari off the ropes! Hikari comes back to be taken down with a shoulder block by Ms. Extreme who instantly goes down for the cover!

ON-

Rich Russillo: Quick kickout by Hikari who immediately goes back to locking horns with Ms. Extreme in the tie up. But this time it’s Ms. Extreme who gets the better of the exchange by slipping behind Hikari for a rear waist lock. Hikari attempts to pry the hands of Ms. Extreme off her waist, but her attempts are made futile by Ms. Extreme who sends Hikari down to the mat and follows up with a side headlock of her own on the downed Kanno.

Persephone: Can they please stop with this chain wrestling shit?

James Peters: :wow: Hikari has an escape for the headlock of Ms. Extreme by utilizing a headscissors around the neck of Ms. Extreme forcing her to release her hold. Although, it isn’t long before Ms. Extreme slips out and these two are both back on their feet. It seems we have a stalemate when it comes to wrestling between these two. Hikari looks to change that by charging in at Ms. Extreme who’s just one step ahead with an arm drag that gets transitioned into an arm lock. Ms. Extreme has that knee of hers grinding into the face of Hikari while she keeps in this hold.

Rich Russillo: This isn’t able to prevent Hikari from finding a way to get back to a vertical base as the armlock remains in. It’s not gonna be as effective though, and that’s showing as Ms. Extreme gets backed into the corner by Hikari who levels her with a huge forearm. Hikari follows up and whips Ms. Extreme into the corner across from them. HIKARI CHARGES IN- OH! Eats a big boot from Ms. Extreme who got the leg up at the very last minute. Now Ms. Extreme jumps to the middle rope and comes flying down with a huge dropkick! MS. EXTREME HOOKS THE LEG!

ONNNNNEEEEEEEE!

T-

James Peters: KICKOUT BY HIKARI! But they may have her done more harm than good as Ms. Extreme just puts the boots to a downed Hikari after that kickout! I think the final stomp from Ms. Extreme just caught Hikari right between the eyes as well! Ms. Extreme is not taking it easy on the newcomer one bit and attempts to hoist her up for a Suplex, but it’s Hikari who drops to one knee and is able to deadweight Ms. Extreme for the time being. Long enough to mount some offense with shots to midsection that causes Ms. Extreme to release Kanno from her clutches.

Rich Russillo: HIKARI TAKES THIS MOMENT AND CAPITALIZES WITH A THRUST KICK THAT SENDS MS. EXTREME OUT THROUGH THE ROPES! Hikari is not far behind and slams Ms. Extreme’s head down onto the steel steps! That’s gonna leave a mark, and so is the barricade that Ms. Extreme just got head slammed off of as well. Hikari is using the environment to her advantage and you can’t fault her for that.

James Peters: She knows she’s gonna have to bring out everything to beat someone like Ms. Extreme. Who now is gonna get thrown into the ringpost by Hik- MS. EXTREME COUNTERS! And Hikari goes into the ringpost instead, causing her to retreat back into the ring. You can see a little hesitation on the part of Ms. Extreme to follow and turn her back on the looming threat of Miku on the outside. BUT IT’S THE HESITATION THAT COSTS HER WHEN KANNO QUICKLY PLANTS HER DOWN WITH A NECKBREAKER THROUGH THE ROPES! HIKARI LOOKS TO PUT MS. EXTREME AWAY, COULD THIS BE IT?!

ONNNEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWW-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! Hikari isn’t gonna give Ms. Extreme any chance to breathe and wastes no time to trap her in a chinlock. Excellent gameplan by Hikari, this move is gonna give her some recovery time, and wear down her opponent in the process. Ms. Extreme is looking to pry the hands of Hikari Kanno from her head and neck area but is thwarted when Hikari releases the hold and drops Ms. Extreme with a dropkick to the back of the head!

Persephone: Only took them forever to actually start picking up the pace.

James Peters: The pain from that dropkick causes Ms. Extreme to roll into the corner to create a little separation. But here comes Hikari who presses her knee into the face of Ms. Extreme, and the referee is gonna have no choice but to make a count here.

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI-

James Peters: Hikari finally releases at the very last second, making sure she got every ounce of punishment in before letting go. Referee forces Hikari out of the corner, allowing Ms. Extreme to maintain a vertical base once more. HIKARI TAKES NOTICE AND RUNS AT MS. EXTREME WITH A BACK ELBOW IN THE CORNER! …BUT IT’S MS. EXTREME WHO SIDESTEPS! HIKARI STUMBLES BACK AND INTO THE ARMS OF A WAITING MS. EXTREME WHO DROPS HER RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HER NECK WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! Now it’s Hikari using the ropes to bring herself back up. BUT MS. EXTREME GOES FULL STEAM AHEAD AT HIKARI WHO TOSSES MS. EXTREME OVER HER SHOULDER!

Rich Russillo: LOOK! Ms. Extreme managed to catch herself on the apron and I don’t think Hikari noticed! MS. EXTREME WITH A SPRINGBOARD INTO A BULLDOG THAT PLANTS HIKARI DOWN FACE-FIRST! THERE’S THE PIN BY MS. EXTREME!

ONNNNEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THRR-

Rich Russillo: LAST MINUTE KICKOUT BY HIKARI! Ms. Extreme thought she had the match won right there and is ushering Hikari to get back up to her feet. MS. EXTREME BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES- STOPPED! HIKARI WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT THAT ALMOST TAKES THE HEAD OF MS. EXTREME CLEAN OFF ITS SHOULDERS! A dazed Ms. Extreme takes a wild swing at Hikari, but she ducks under and hooks the arms! MS. EXTREME IS TRAPPED IN THE FULL NELSON AND KANNO BRINGS HER DOWN WITH A SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme may be on auto pilot as she rolls to her knees of that Suplex, she certainly doesn’t look like she knows where she is right now. HIKARI OFF THE ROPES…MS. EXTREME SUCKERED HER IN FOR A EXPLODER SUPLEX…DENIED! The back elbows from Hikari forces Ms. Extreme to release! HIKARI OFF THE ROPES ONCE MORE AND CONNECTS WITH A JAW SHATTERING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!

Persephone: How is Ms. Extreme having this hard of a time finishing Hikari what’s her name off here?

James Peters: :wow: More so a true showing of the skill Hikari has being able to hang with someone like Ms. Extreme, who has held multiple championships here in EAW. But back to the action, Hikari Kanno is scaling the top rope and I don’t think there’s gonna be any opposition to stop her as Ms. Extreme has lied nothing short of motionless since that stiff uppercut from Hikari. HIKARI TAKES TO THE SKIES!! I SPOKE A BIT TOO SOON AS MS. EXTREME PREVENTED HIKARI FROM JUMPING AT THE VERY LAST SECOND WITH A FOREARM SMASH! That certainly rocked Hikari who is now accompanied to the top rope by Ms. Extreme who is hitting blow after blow after blow to Hikari.

Rich Russillo: I think we’re beginning to see Ms. Extreme’s true intentions as she hooks Kanno up for a superplex off the top. Believe me, those ropes hold no small height. SUPERPLE- HIKARI SLIPS OUT FROM UNDER MS. EXTREME AND ATTEMPTS TO POWERBOMB MS. EXTREME OUT FROM THE CORNER! BUT MS. EXTREME HAS JUST A BIT TOO MUCH WHEREWITHAL FOR THAT AND REIGNS DOWN ON HIKARI WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH!

Virtual Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!

James Peters: Hikari comes stumbling out of that corner, and Ms. Extreme takes to where she’s familiar with being the top rope. MS. EXTREME LAUNCHES HERSELF AT KANNO FOR GLASS CEILING!! TOP ROPE STUNNER ADOPTED FROM CAMERON ELLA AVA CONNECTS! Wait, HIKARI COUNTERED! MS. EXTREME GOT CAUGHT AND GETS TAKEN OUT WITH A SNAP SAITO SUPLEX! HIKARI SCRAMBLES FOR THE COVER, SHE MAY HAVE IT HERE!

ONNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: You have got to be kidding me, A LAST SECOND KICKOUT BY MS. EXTREME!

(Hikari Kanno bangs on the mat in frustration after that kickout by Ms. Extreme, having thought she had the match won there; even pleading with the ref that was the count of three.)

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno is making the grave mistake of getting frustrasted. You can’t get frustrated if things don’t go your way here, you have to keep going, and stay on your opponent. I think Hikari is coming to realize that now, and grabs Ms. Extreme from behind. The arm of Ms. Extreme has been hammerlocked and she is now lifted into the air by Hikari Kanno. Are we gonna see it…ROPPONGI DREAMS!! …NO! MS. EXTREME SLIPS OUT THE BACK AND LANDS ON HER FEET!

James Peters: HIKARI IS CAUGHT OFF GUARD AND GETS TWISTED AROUND INTO…TWIST OF FATE!!! SPINNING NECKBREAKER PLANTS DOWN HIKARI!! MS. EXTREME SHOOTS FOR THE COVER!

ONNNEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWOOOOOOOO!!

TH-

James Peters: MIKU SAKAI! Miku is on the apron, and the referee’s attention is diverted! Ms. Extreme had the match won right there, and is rightfully angry at Miku’s interference. Ms. Extreme attempts to lift Hikari back to her feet- EYE POKE! REFEREE’S ATTENTION IS STILL DIVERTED AND HIKARI WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE! And NOW Miku wants to step off the apron. THE REFEREE GETS INTO POSITION!

ONNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!

…..

….

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT!! I thought Hikari had Ms. Extreme right there! Both competitors jump back to their feet, AND MS. EXTREME GETS CAUGHT IN BRIGHTSTA- SHE TURNS THE URANAGE INTO AN ARM DRAG! Both competitors jump back up, AND MS. EXTREME TAKES KANNO DOWN WITH ONE OF HER SIGNATURE METEORA’S IN POP UP FORM! Hikari Kanno is down and now is Ms. Extreme’s chance to put the finishing touches on this match. MS. EXTREME LEAPS IN THE AIR!

Rich Russillo + James Peters: A BLIND FURY!!!

James Peters: DIVING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP CONNECTS!! AND MS. EXTREME LUNGES INTO THE PIN!

ONNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Gangsta” by New Years Day plays throughout the arena to a huge pop from the virtual audience and Ms. Extreme gets to her feet for her hand to be raised by the referee.)

Bella Braxton: HERE’S YOUR WINNER…MS. EXTREME!!!!

Persephone: Finally, I’m glad it’s over.

James Peters: What are you on about? That match was a fantastic showing by both women and Ms. Extreme proved why she’s one of the best female competitors on the brand today.

Rich Russillo: Exactly, Ms. Extreme defeats Hikari Kanno and starts off her 2021 the right way and that’s with a win. And while she may have lost at Road to Redemption, if she can keep building wins like this, she will inevitably build herself back up to get another match for the Universal Women’s Championship of Serena Bennett.

James Peters: Yep, but take absolutely nothing away from Hikari Kanno as well. She proved tonight that she’s gonna be a very valuable asset in the Voltage roster by taking someone like Ms. Extreme to her limit, albeit with questionable tactics at times. But she certainly has nothing short of a bright future here and someone I could see contending for a Women’s Championship sooner rather than later.

(The camera pans to show Ms. Extreme heading her way to the back in victory as Miku Sakai tends to her fallen partner and we fade to black.)

(The scene fades to Sofia Clarke backstage with a microphone in her hand. The Voltage backdrop is behind her as she’s smiling to the camera.)

Sofia Clarke: We are starting 2021 in the best way possible. There are a ton of Elitists who have their own respective goals about what they want to get out of 2021, but my next guest has a chance in advancing to the next round of the 2021 King of Elite tournament. Right here to discuss everything related to King of Elite and 2021 as a whole is ‘The Hot Commodity,’ Candice Blair!

(Right on cue, Candice Blair walks out in her shiny sky blue ring gear. Her layered blonde hair is all curled up as she smiles at Sofia. The spotlight loves Candice as always and due to the body glitter around her arms, she is sparkling.)

Sofia Clarke: Now, Candice in a matter of moments, you will be facing Azrael in a first-round match of the King of Elite Tournament, but before we talk about that, I wanted to talk about you about your thoughts and emotions about how 2020 was for you?

Candice Blair: I would have loved nothing more than to have concluded 2020 as the Specialists Championship, but that didn’t happen. I suppose, I got a little too confident in my skills and ignored some of my trainer, Desmond’s advice and it took getting a barbed wire hand brush stuck in my hair to realize that I fucked up and underestimated the intensity of the match. I wanted nothing more than to be in the final two along with Kasey, but I found myself in the final three spots for the second year in a row. After Desmond’s ranting, I realized that I needed to be more focused and I guess, that’s a resolution for me in 2021. I thought I was focused, but apparently, I need to be MORE focused and goal oriented if I want to hold my very first championship.

Sofia Clarke: Is winning your first championship something that you want to accomplish in 2021?

Candice Blair: Of course it is. As much as people talk down on 2020 for the whole pandemic, deaths and what not, it was also the year, where I realized what I wanted to accomplish in my tenure in this company. One of those things was winning my first championship. Facing Serena Bennett after Territorial Invasion, made me realize that I could be a champion and I could be the next goat Elitist in this company. I went from a part-timer in a comfy contract to being a committed member on the Voltage roster and that’s beyond insane to look at since I never really wanted to be tied down to anywhere, but honestly, I don’t see myself going anywhere for a while and I’m just enjoying this whole EAW experience. Once this whole pandemic ends, I’m not sure how I am going to handle all of this traveling, but that’s something that I’ll figure out when the time comes.

Sofia Clarke: Now that we’re aware of what you want to get out of 2021, let’s turn our attention towards King of Elite. Now, people on social media have been stating that if there is a year for a female to win the tournament, it’s this year. We’ve barely seen any women take part of this tournament, let alone be in the finals, but how do you feel about your chances in the King of Elite tournament? Are you confident? Do you have your doubts?

Candice Blair: Have you seen the main event of Voltage? Rex McAllister versus Minerva; that seems like a semi-finals match in itself. Honestly, just looking at that match terrifies me. I’ve been in the ring with someone like Minerva, who is talented as hell and Rex is a workhorse and pulse of this brand, so if there comes a point where I face one of them, I am going to have my work cut out for me. Now, in facing someone like Azrael? He found himself to be the first eliminated in the match. I made it further than him in my own respective Chamber match as —

(Candice Blair stops talking as she stares across to Azrael just standing there inches away from her. Candice looks to be quite confused, almost like she’s ready for him to say something, but nothing comes out of his mouth.)

Candice Blair: …

(Despite the weirded out look on her face, Azrael still doesn’t move, which almost annoys her.)

Candice Blair: Okaaaaaaaaay, can I help you?

(Azrael reaches his hand out, looking to strike Candice Blair in the face, but instead, he uses his index finger to curl her hair around it. Then, he proceeds to pet Candice’s hair as she wants to internally scream, but Azrael is a freak to her and who knows what he can do to her?)

Candice Blair: Well, it was nice meeting you, but I’ll be on my way.

(Candice Blair backs away, but bumps into something as a part of her is quite afraid to turn around. The person behind her is Mr. Jacobs and he places an arm around Candice before turning her around and shoves her back to Azrael.)

Mr. Jacobs: Sweetheart, you’re way over your head with thinking that you’ll be able to advance to the next round of the King of Elite tournament. You think that you’ll be able to beat Azrael? No, the force of Azrael will be too much for you to conquer. The force of Azrael is something that you should be afraid about. Did you see what Azrael was able to accomplish in the Extreme Elimination Chamber? This is the same man who ripped TLA’s tooth out of his mouth. The same man who bit through metal. Despite being the first eliminated, it took many men to get him out of the equation. It’s a natural instinct to be afraid of Azrael. There’s nothing wrong with that, sweetheart, but I’m just here to tell you that you will fall victim to Azrael and it will be too much for you to handle.

(Azrael sniffs Candice Blair’s blonde locks which may or may not smell like strawberries. He slowly snakes his arm around Candice’s shoulders as she tries to break free of his grasp. If there was one moment for her to scream, it would be right now, but Mr. Jacobs is not done with giving her a warning.)

Mr. Jacobs: What’s the matter here, sweetheart? You got places to be. It was my idea to get us all acquainted before we face off in our match. I thought that we should all get to see what the other is like. Azrael has talked to me about wanting to get to know you better and I figured that it would be a splendid idea.

Candice Blair: Well…uh…nice to know…

(Candice Blair continues to struggle to get out of Azrael’s grasp, but it’s Azrael that manages to release his grasp on her.)

Mr. Jacobs: Azrael may have been nice to you, sweetheart, but in the ring, it’s going to be a completely different story. See you out there.

(Mr. Jacobs snaps his fingers, trying to catch Azrael’s attention, so that the two of them can leave. Azrael leaves, but he seems to be looking back at Candice Blair, almost lingering his stare on the blonde. Candice is trying to rub the back of her neck and tries to get her breath back, almost calming down her nerves. Azrael almost seems enamored by her and by the look of Mr. Jacobs’ face, he is in no mood for that. He pulls out a small cane out of his pocket, unfolds it and strikes Azrael in the back of the head, but Azrael is still looking at Candice from afar.)

Mr. Jacobs: I SAID COME ON NOW!

(Mr. Jacobs hits Azrael with the cane again on the back of the head and this time, Azrael’s attention is caught as he tears his eyes away from Candice Blair and walks away from the scene. Scene fades out to ringside, where Bella Braxton is standing in the center of the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The Following Contest is a first round King Of Elite Tournament Match and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from The Warehouse! Weighing in at 290 pounds! Accompanied to the ring by his manager, Mr. Jacobs, he is AZRAEL!!!!!

(The arena goes dark, red lights and smoke form at the beginning of the entranceway as Girei by Yasuharo Takanashi begins to play, Mr. Jacobs walks out with Azrael behind him, he has a collar and chain to hold back the monster until they get to the apron. Mr. Jacobs leads him into the ring and holds Azrael back as he looks around at the Virtual Crowd.)

James Peters: First Round King of Elite match and this is going to be a good one. Azrael the monster who was scary dominant in the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road To Redemption will be facing another woman with a great performance at the same show in Candice Blair. Two contrasting styles.

Rich Russillo: A Beauty and a Beast. Candice is in a lot of trouble.

Persephone: This is like Bambi versus Godzilla, it should be quick, then on closer to seeing Rexy win it all!

(As Azrael’s theme starts to fade it is replaced with “Diva” by Beyonce. Candice Blair steps out and poses before taking a deep breath and walking toward the ring.)

Bella Braxton: And the opponent hails from San Francisco, CA.! Weighing in at 126 pounds…. She is “THE HOT COMMODITY” CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!

(Candice looks around and smirks before sliding into the ring and keeping her distance as Mr. Jacobs has a huge smile on his face controlling Azrael, then stepping out as Candice nervously takes off her ring gear.)

Persephone: She looks scared.

Rich Russillo: Wouldn’t you be!?

Persephone: Well yeah but Sexy Rexy would protect me.

James Peters: Candice doesn’t know what to make of this monster and the referee is ready to get the match going.

(The Referee checks both competitors and rings for the bell and the match to begin.)

(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Candice looks concerned, as the monster Azrael is breathing heavily, watching the gorgeous Candice as she tries to fin da way to approach this beast. Candice starts to circle the ring as Azrael stands there, Mr. Jacobs yelling in the background.)

Mr. Jacob: (off Mic) KING OF ELITE! DESTROY HER!

(Azrael looks at his brother, then to the gorgeous Candice as she is trying to find out how exactly to deal with this man.)

James Peters: Candice is trying to figure out what to do with this beast, and we saw earlier how rough Mr. Jacobs was on him, and the extreme tactics he is taking to ensure that Azrael is ready, the King of Elite is a big deal, everyone knows what is at stake, and the last thing Mr. Jacobs wants to see is his brother being eliminated in the first round.

Rich Russillo: How the hell can he lose!? Look at Candice, she is petrified right now trying to figure out how to approach this guy! She is the size od his thighs, and if this little lady is going to try and make history like we will see in our Main Event with Minerva and Rex McAllister in another first-round match, she needs to get by this, this monster!

Persephone: She’s totally dead, and let’s hurry this up so I can see Rexy put down that Goth bitch.

(Candice continues to circle around, Azrael goes to grab her but she slides under his legs, turns into a dropkick to the knees.)

James Peters: Candice with a good strategy, a quick dropkick to the knees! It staggers Azrael a little! Candice again, runs into the ropes, Azrael with a clothesline, NO! She quickly ducks, bounces back and another dropkick to his knees! Azrael stumbles forward, Candice is using her speed, she hops on the second rope, he turns into spinning heel kick! Candice is now going high! Azrael is staggered, she is so quick, and he can’t get his bearings, Candice now runs against the ropes again, chop block on Azrael and he falls to one knee!

Rich Russillo: I can’t believe it, she is actually slowly tearing this redwood down piece by piece, she may not be as experienced as many of the other wrestlers, but Candice Blair is showing why she has always had the pedigree and how important this match is to her! She is climbing the second rope again, trying anything to get Azrael down and she flies off! NO! Azrael caught her by the neck, he is back on his feet and look at the eyes of Candice! Those meat hooks are bigger than her head! He is going to squash her like a bug! Pop her like a pimple! He lifts her off the mat! She is dangling there and look at Mr. Jacobs!

(Mr. Jacobs is smiling, slamming the mat, and screaming for Azrael to drop her flat on her back.)

Persephone: Yes! Finish this early! The faster we get to Rexy!

James Peters: He has Candice up but no! Candice is pounding on his wrist! He puts her right in his face! Candice pokes Azrael in the eyes! He drops her, Candice is recovering from the choke, she gets back on her feet, charging in and BICYCLE KNEE SRIKE! AZRAEL ISS NOT OFF HIS FEET AND CANDICE GOES FOR A SECOND ONE AND IT HITS! AZRAEL FALLS TO THE MAT! CANDICE WITH THE STANDING MOONSAULT WITH THE KNEES! SHE GOES FOR A COVER!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TW…..

Rich Russillo: AZRAEL THREW HER OFF LIKE SHE WAS NOTHING AND CANDICE LANDED ON HER FEET! SHE IS KICKING HIM WHILE HE IS DOWN! BUT AZRAEL IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, Candice is attacking him now! Kicks and fists, she doesn’t care! Candice is trying to beat him down now and ANOTHHER DROPKICK! Azrael bounces off the ropes, BIG BOOT ON CANDICE! HE HIT HER FLUSH IN THE FACE AND NOW CANDICE IS DOWN! AZRAEL IS LOOKING OVER AT MR. JACOBS! Look at the evil smile on Jacob’s face! He is telling Azrael to destroy Candice! Azrael picks up Candice like a rag doll and LAUNCHES HER HALF-WAY ACROSS THE RING, MY GOD!!!!

Persephone: I hope Rexy does that to Minerva tonight! Candice just quit! Save yourself the embarrassment, no one is beating Rexy! No one! This is all a waste of time!

James Peters: No, it isn’t because both of these wrestlers have a chance to be in the finals of the King of Elite, they are capable, and we cannot discount them just because of Rex McAllister! Candice though looks hurt, she is trying to get back to her feet, and AZRAEL RUNS OVER HER WITH A MASSIVE CLOTHESLINE! HE ALMOST TOOK HER HEAD OFF! CANDICE IS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE RIGHT NOW AND AZRAEL DROPS ON HER! HE IS CHOCKING OUT CANDICE! THE REFEREE CAN’T STOP IT AND MR. JACOBS IS YELLING AT HIS BROTHER TO FINISH THE MATCH!

(The referee tries to break up the choke, he quickly tries to pull him off before administering the count.)

1!

2!

3!

4!

(Azrael breaks the choke, glaring at the referee as he backs up. Azrael chokes her again.)

Rich Russillo: HE IS CHOKING HER AGAIN! THIS MONSTER IS RELENTLESS AND ALL HE WANTS TO DO IS PUT CANDICE DOWN! SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN THAT IS A THIRD OF THE SIZE OF AZRAEL AND THIS MATCH JUST ISN’T FAIR! CANDICE IS OUTMATCHED IN EVERY WAY EXCEPT SPEED AND WHEN SHE CAN’T WALK THEN WHAT!? THE REFEREE AGAIN TRYING TO BREAK THE CHOKE! HE ADMINISTERS THE COUNT!

1!

2!

3!

4!

(Azrael breaks the hold and slowly gets up, holding Candice by the hair, he scoops her up over his shoulders and walks around the ring, Mr. Jacobs gives the execution symbol, but Azrael stops, tilting his head and placing Candice, sitting her up on the top rope as she looks confused.)

Persephone: What are you doing!? Finish her! End this now!

James Peters: IT looks like Azrael is a bit confused on what to do with Candice, look at Mr. Jacobs, he is furious right now, Mr. Jacobs is on the apron and Azrael is looking over at him, he is berating the monster!

Mr. Jacobs: (Off Mic) WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM! FINISH HER OFF SO WE CAN ADVANCE TO THE NEXT ROUND OF THE TOURNAMENT! FINISH HER, NOW!

(Mr. Jacobs whips him with the leather strap and chain as Azrael nods, turning right at Candice who catches him in a Tornado DDT which shifts all his momentum to fall on the mats as the virtual crowd cheers.)

James Peters: CANDICE WAS ABLE TO TAKE THE BIG MAN DOWN WITH A TORNADO DDT! AZRAEL DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW AND CANDICE IS CLIMBING THE TOP ROPE, THIS IS HIGH RISK… FROG SPLASH! SHE HIT THE FROG SPLASH AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Azrael throws her off again! This monster is not staying down and Candice is trying to figure out what to do! He is slowly getting up, she charges again with a Bicycle Knee… NO! WHIPLASH! THE BATTERING RAM HEAD BUTT CONNECTED RIGHT IN THE CHEST OF CANDICE AND SHE IS DOWN! HE KNOWCK THE WIND OUT OF HER…. AND AZRAEL JUST STEPPED ON CANDICE! HE PUT ALL HIS PRESSURE ON HER CHEST AND SHE IS OUT OF BREATH! THE MONSTER IS RELENTLESS! PICKING HER UP AGAIN…. WHAT IS HE DOING…. OH GOD NO….. POWER BOMB ON CANDICE BLAIR! HE IS STARING AT HER LIFELESS BODFY AS MR. JACOBS IS YELLING FOR HIM TO PIN HER! THIS HAS TO BE IT, CANDICE IS NOT MOVING!

(Azrael drops for the pin….)

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THREE…..

Persephone: HOW DID SHE GET HER SHOUDLER UP! STAY DOWN CANDICE! DAMN IT!

James Peters: Candice Blair is not done yet! She is trying to stay alive in this as the monster has already picked her back up, look at how Azrael is looking at Candice, his hands around her neck, listening to Jacobs in the background, he hoists up Candice off her feet! He is literally talking the air out of her…. SLAMMING CANDICE BACK AND HEAD FIRST TO THE MATS! OKAY, THE REFEREE HAS TO FIND A WAY TO STOP THIS MATCH! HE NEEDS TO PRESERVE THIS WOMAN’S CAREER…. And oh no…. she’s hemorrhaging!

(Candice starts coughing up blood, turning to her side barely able to move. Azrael continues to stare at her, tilting his head some, turning to Mr. Jacobs.)

Mr. Jacobs: (Off Mic) THAT IS IT! NOW SHE IS DONE! YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO! EXTINGUISH HER PRETTY LIGHT AND LET US ADVANCE TO OUR NEXT VICTIM! DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW!

(Azrael slowly turns back to Candice and hoists her up by the hair, she is spaghetti legged, trying to get her bearings as he yanks his fist back……)

Rich Russillo: “O h no…. DEMON PUNCH! HE JUST CLOCKED CANDICE ON THE JAW AND I THINK HE KNOCKLED HER UNCONSCIOUS! SHE IS NOT MOVING JUST PIN HER AND END THIS DAMN IT! SHE NEEDS A DOCTOR! THERE IS INTERNAL BLEEDING!

Persephone: PIN HER YOU STUPID BRUTE!

Rich Russillo: HE DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THREE…..

Persephone: HOW!? HOW!? IS SHE GETTING THE SHOUDLER UP!? HOW!?

James Peters: Candice Blair is still alive in this! She was able to kick out! What resiliency by this young woman and now Azrael is hearing it from Mr. Jacobs. Candice is right for the pickings, though she is trying her best to keep fighting She has a never quit attitude and Azrael is picking her up again, he picks her up FOR THE BURIAL! THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER AND THIS WILL BE IT! NO! HE HAS HER UP BUT CANDICE LOOK AT HER! SHE IS STILL FIGHTING! DOING EVERYTHIGN THAT SHE CAN TO BREAK OUT OF THE HOLD! AZRAEL IS READY TO DROP BUT CANDICE IS ABLE TO GET OUT OF IT! LANDING ON HER FEET! AZRAEL LOOKS SURPRISED! HE GRABS HER AGAIN BUT CANDICE WITH AN ENZINGUIRI TO THE HEAD OF THE TALL MONSTER! HE STAGGERS AND CANDICE IS BARELY STANDING! WHAT IS SHE DOING!? A KICK TO THE GUT OF AZRAEL….

Rich Russillo: CANDY DESTROYER!?

Persephone: No FN’ Way!

Rich Russillo: CANDICE GOING FOR THE CANDY DESTROYER! SHE IS TRYING TO FLIP BUT CAN’T! WAIT! AZAREL BREAKS OUT OF THE HOLD! SHE LOOKS UP AND LAST BREATH! AZRAEL HAS THE LAST BREATH LOCKED IN AS CANDICE IS COUGHING UP BLOOD AND SCREAMING! THIS IS OVER AND……

Persephone: Oh what now!?

James Peters: Azrael let go of the move, what is going on here!? He was in for the kill and he couldn’t finish it!? What is he doing!?

(Azrael screams before turning and rolling out of the ring, slowly making his way toward the back. Mr. Jacobs chases him down trying to stop him as the referee administers the count…

1!

James Peters: Azrael doesn’t want to hurt her anymore!?

Rich Russillo: It looks that way!

6!

7!

Mr. Jacobs: (Off Mic) GET BACK IN THAT RING RIGHT NOW AND FINISH HER AZRAEL! FINISH HER!!!! ARE YOU STUPID! SON OF A BITCH, FINISH HER!

(Azrael looks back at a confused and hurt Candice Blair before turning back to continue walking away.)

8!

9!

10!

(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Bella Braxton: The winner of the match as a result of a count out and advancing to round two of the King of Elite Tournament…. CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!

(Diva by Beyonce begins to play throughout the arena as Candice collapses to one knee as the referee raises her hand and signals for medical attention to come out. Azrael stops and looks at Candice when Mr. Jacobs starts to whip him with the leather strap and chain. Azrael howls some in pain as Jacobs continues, Candice looks almost sympathetic but there is nothing physically she can do as she collapses to the mats.)

Rich Russillo: He had the match won, Candice beauty maybe was what soothed the savage beast!? She put up a great effort and this time, her looks probably kept her alive in the Tournament.

James Peters: I must agree and Azrael is being berated by Mr. Jacobs who seems to have had enough, but what we saw tonight from Azrael… compassion, maybe?

Persephone: She’s hot, he’s ugly, she led him on, way to go girl, now let’s get moving we need to get to Rexy!

(Azrael is continues to be hit by Mr. Jacobs, screaming at him all the way to the back as the EMT’s check on Candice who continues to watch him leave to the back area.)

(Commercial for Komatsu Ogawa’s wrestling class, where he teaches you how to wrestle exactly like the great MITSUBACHI.)

(The camera fades in to Bella Braxton standing at the center of the ring)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following is a singles match! And it is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons played up to loud cheers from the virtual crowd as Terry Chambers came out to the center of the stage. With a motivated look on his face he would look up directly at the ring before making his way down the ramp with intensity beyond any other as a stern look accompanied it as well)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Detroit, Michigan… weighing in at 257 pounds… THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Two weeks ago at Road To Redemption Terry Chambers participated in the Extreme Elimination Chamber match for the EAW World Championship. Although coming up short he did remarkable as he ended up being the final two in the matchup showing the lengths he was willing to go in order to capture his first World Title.

James Peters: While that didn’t go his way now that that’s in the past Terry can focus in on the new year. With a lot more on his plate this could be the chance for Terry to open more doors to opportunities that I’m sure he’s been waiting a long time for. While 2020 ended with a loss, I’m sure he’s looking to start 2021 with a win tonight.

Persephone: I’m sure Terry’s New Years Resolution was to lose weight, but if we know how all resolutions go. That definitely is not going to happen. :mjlol:

(Terry circled around the ring before climbing up the steel steps as he entered in. Climbing up to the top rope he would pose at the top for a moment before climbing down as he made his way over to his corner as ‘Natural’ faded out. Not long after ‘Spotlight Savior’ by Iggy Azalea would play to a mixed reaction as Darcy May Morgan made her way out to the stage with a grin and the Cash In The Vault Briefcase. Holding it up in the air for the virtual crowd to see she made her way down the ramp keeping it glistening in the air as she did so with confidence beaming down on her)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Kent, United Kingdom… weighing in at 130 pounds… she is MS. CASH IN THE VAULT… THE LEADING LADY… DARCY MAY MORGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Meanwhile the last time we saw Darcy May Morgan was at Road To Redemption as well where it seemed like a more positive outcome for her. Defending her Cash In The Vault briefcase against longtime rival Drake King, to her joy, she retained it, ending her 2020 with a bang. That’s got to make her happy.

James Peters: Of course! Now heading into 2021 the only thing she’d want is to keep that momentum going. Hell with the briefcase still in her possession maybe even cash it in when the time is right. 2020 did Darcy well, but I’m sure 2021 will be the one that shows exactly what The Leading Lady can do.

Persephone: Oh c’mon now let’s not blow things out of proportion. We obviously know once Sexy Rexy gets back his EAW World Championship that he never should’ve lost Darcy won’t have a chance at cashing it in. In my opinion? She should be watching Andre Walker and that New Breed Championship, just a suggestion though!

(Darcy would go around as she jumped up onto the apron. Bringing her briefcase down to her side as she entered into the ring. Making her way up the middle rope as she spread her arms out as the crowd cheered loudly as she did so before she made her way over to her corner, preparing for the matchup ahead as ‘Spotlight Savior’ faded out and the Ref signaled for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: Here we go as this Wicked Games rematch is underway! AND TERRY RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE RUNNING FORWARD AS HE TAKES DARCY DOWN WITH A BIG RUNNING LARIAT! Terry is not wasting any time laying waste to Ms. Cash In The Vault as he brings her back up again, AND PULLS HER IN FOR ANOTHER LARIAT!

James Peters: Nope! Darcy ducks under as she’s immediately running to the ropes knowing the danger she’s in early into this match, AS SHE LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND SENDS TERRY FLYING WITH A HURRICANRANA! Terry falling down to the ground as he’s up into a seated position but is getting up to his feet with quickness, BUT NOT BEFORE DARCY CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK TO HIS HEAD WHILE HE’S ON A KNEE!

Persephone: Look at him he’s like a fucking turtle trying to flip itself over. But nonetheless all good things have to come to an end as unfortunately he’s back up to his feet. Darcy grabbing him and with immense strength is sending him into an Irish whip, AS SHE LEAPS UP AND GOES FOR A KNEE TOWARDS HIS HEAD! But she’s too short! It’s either that or it’s the fact Terry caught her, AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SPINEBUSTER! All 500 pounds of him just absolutely crushing Darcy!

Rich Russillo: Darcy attempting to catch her breath as she’s beginning to pull herself back up to her feet in an attempt to recover, but Terry stops her dead in her tracks with a big axe handle to the back of her head! Darcy struggling as Terry brings her up and drags her towards a corner, Terry leaning her against it as he leans back and connects with a big knife edged chop against her chest! Darcy trying to retreat out of harm’s way, BUT TERRY GRABS HER AND LAUNCHES HER WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX SENDING HER BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!

James Peters: Terry has had a vice grip on this match so far and he’s only going to continue to bring the offense to Darcy tonight! Terry grabbing Darcy by the head and lifting her up, AS HE’S LIFTING HER INTO A GERMAN SUPLEX!

Rich Russillo: BUT DARCY FLIPS AROUND AND TRANSITIONS IT INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO-

Persephone: BOOOOOOOO!!!

Rich Russillo: TERRY QUICKLY POWERS OUT! Both of them are back up now, BUT DARCY CATCHING TERRY WITH AN ENZUIGIRI BEFORE HE CAN FULLY RECOVER! Darcy taking advantage of the situation as Terry is beginning to stumble back up, BUT DARCY WITH A BIG FACE BUSTER TO TAKE HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!

James Peters: Darcy is persistent as she’s making sure Terry isn’t getting a moment to breathe right now! Darcy sliding down to the ground as she’s locking Terry into a headlock and attacking his head with a cesspool of punches towards his face! Terry scrambling his arms out trying to find a way out of it, as he manages to grab at the head of Darcy and roll through! TERRY’S LIFTING DARCY UP AND DROPPING HER DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB!

Persephone: Hah what a fucking twig. Darcy grabbing her back in pain and lets admit her spine is probably snapped in half. Terry bringing her back up to her feet, and look! :mjlol: She’s actually attempting to fight back with punches and shit. Wait :dahell: it’s actually working??? Terry being sent to the ropes as Darcy runs backwards, but that’s not the point you’re supposed to be running towards him what the fuck!

Rich Russillo: AS DARCY SLAMS A KNEE INTO THE GUT OF TERRY CHAMBERS SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND AGAIN! Terry in pain as he attempts to roll out of the ring, but it’s Darcy that barely manages to grab him by his hair and bring him up onto the apron. Terry attempting to send shots towards Darcy but Darcy is fighting back as she attempts to fend The Barbaric Carnivore off just for this moment! Darcy grabbing Terry by his head now!

James Peters: BUT TERRY LIFTS HER OFF THE GROUND AND OVER THE ROPES! ANOTHER POWERBOMB! EDGE OF THE APRON! DARCY IS ABSOLUTELY DEAD BUT TERRY IS PUSHING HER BACK INTO THE RING AS HE HOOKS THE LEG AND GOES FOR THE PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Persephome: GODDAMMIT! ONE OF YOU JUST DIE ALREADY!

Rich Russillo: DARCY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Darcy completely lifeless as Terry is slowly beginning to get back up to his feet. Terry grabbing Darcy and bringing her up! HE’S GOING FOR A BIG SUPLEX! But it’s Darcy that manages to escape out of it before it can connect! Darcy landing on her feet as she goes behind Terry, CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF HIS KNEECAP SENDS TERRY DOWN TO ONE KNEE!

James Peters: Darcy up to her feet as she grabs Terry by the head, AS SHE SENDS HIM DOWN WITH A BULLDOG! Terry grabbing his face as now Darcy is beginning to stomp down on him repeatedly! Terry on instinct rolling to the ropes as he’s absorbing the attack Darcy is sending to her chest as he grabs onto the ropes and Darcy takes a step back! Terry slowly beginning to bring himself up, AS DARCY RUNS FORWARD AND ATTEMPTS A KNEE TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD BEFORE HE CAN FULLY RECOVER!

Persephone: NAH! Terry managing to move out of the way as he shoves Darcy out of the ring! Hah! What a pussy as Terry is taking this moment to breath, if you ask me? Bad cholesterol as he rolls out of the ring and grabs Darcy as he brings him back up, BUT DARCY GRABBING HIM AND PUSHES THE LUMP OF FAT RIGHT ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON!

Rich Russillo: Terry in a world of hurt as Darcy grabs him by the head, AND SENDS HIM FLYING TOWARDS THE BARRICADE AS TERRY COLLIDES SPINEFIRST WITH IT! Terry crawling away but Darcy is not letting up as she’s grabbing Terry and rolling him right back into the ring as she enters back in following him.

James Peters: Darcy rolling back in as I think she’s setting Terry up as he gets back up to his feet, DARCY GOING FOR FACE ACHE! BICYCLE KICK INCOMING!

Persephone: HAH! SHE MISSES! Terry moving out of the way as he turns her around in his direction, AND WITH THE MOST CLICHE THING EVER HE GOES FOR ANOTHER BIG MOVE IN RESPONSE! MOMENT OF SILENCE!

Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S DARCY THAT AVOIDS THE HEADBUTT ATTEMPT AS SHE SLIDES THROUGH AND ROLLS UP TERRY INTO A SCHOOLBOY OUT OF NOWHERE!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

James Peters: TERRY KICKS OUT! Darcy slamming the mat but is right back up to her feet as Terry is back up as well, AS DARCY SPINS AND GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO HIS HEAD! BUT IT’S TERRY THAT CATCHES HER AND LAUNCHES HER THROUGH THE AIR AS SHE’S DROPPED DOWN INTO AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! Darcy in pain but is still attempting to get up, to the shock of Terry but that isn’t letting him stop! AS TERRY GRABS HER AND CONNECTS WITH A PULL-BACK FOREARM SMASH SENDING HER BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND FOR GOOD MEASURE!

Persephone: That stupid punch takes Darcy down to the ground as Terry is bringing her back up, YEAH! MISOGYNY!

Rich Russillo: Wait a minute…

Persephone: ???

Rich Russillo: Nevermind. TERRY GOING FOR ANOTHER LARIAT! But Darcy manages to duck under that attempt once more as she grabs Terry and turns him around, DARCY GOING FOR AN ENZUIGIRI! But Terry ducks under that one as well just barely! Darcy falling flat to the ground but she’s bringing herself up, AS TERRY GOES FOR A BELLY TO BELLY!

James Peters: But Darcy flips over and lands behind Terry as she grabs him from behind, RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE TO THE HEAD OF TERRY SENDS HIM FALLING BACKWARD! Terry flat on the ground as Darcy is waiting for him to get back up to his feet again, DARCY IS GOING FOR TTYN! TALK TO YOU NEVER!

Persephone: MOMENT OF SILENCE! HEADBUTT OUT OF NOWHERE WHICH I HOPE THEY BOTH GOT A CONCUSSION OUT OF AS AT LEAST TERRY IS COMPETENT ENOUGH TO GO FOR THE PIN ON DARCY!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHH-

Rich Russillo: BUT DARCY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Terry in pure agony but it isn’t stopping him as he’s right back up to his feet. Terry backed up against the corner keeping himself up as he watches Darcy, watching her just roll around in pain as he begins to stomp his feet on the ground! Darcy is using the ropes to recover as I don’t think she sees what’s coming because what’s about to happen isn’t going to be so pleasant! TERRY WITH RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! CLAYMORE KICK!

James Peters: DARCY SLIDES UNDER! Terry falling down to the ground as he gets back up as Darcy finds herself going out onto the apron as Terry makes his way over to her! AS DARCY LAUNCHES FORWARD AND TAKES TERRY DOWN WITH A SUICIDE SPEAR!

Persephone: Darcy managing to turn it around in her favor as she’s just really small and quick and Terry being big and fat and the complete opposite of Darcy obviously losing his breath right now as Darcy enters back into the ring and gets him back up to his feet just for the fuck of it. As she grabs him into a headlock, is this really about to be pleasant! DARCY RUNNING TO A CORNER AND REBOUNDING OFF OF THE ROPES GOING FOR A TORNADO DDT!

Rich Russillo: WHICH CONNECTS! Terry faceplanted on the ground as Darcy is bringing him up and throwing him to the ropes looking to capitalize off of it as Terry rebounds back! TTYN CONNECTS! BICYCLE KICK SENDS TERRY DOWN AS DARCY GOES DOWN FOR THE PIN AS WELL!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRR-

James Peters: TERRY GETS THE SHOULDER UP JUST BARELY! Terry barely hanging on as Darcy is slowly bringing herself up and grabbing Terry by his hair, but Terry is beginning to fight back! Shots to the gut of Darcy forcing her to let her grip of him go, but she’s right on the rebound as she runs towards Terry! BUT IT’S TERRY THAT MANAGES TO FIGHT THROUGH THE PAIN AS HE LIFTS DARCY UP AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SPINEBUSTER TAKING THEM BOTH DOWN!

Persephone: Are they really that tired? If I were in that position I’d be going for the pin! I’ve got stamina for days!

Rich Russillo: Is that so? :shaq:

Persephone: Get away from me.

Rich Russillo: :will: Terry beginning to get up first as he’s clutching onto the bottom rope as he’s taking his time knowing that Darcy is still flattened on the mat. Terry grabbing Darcy’s leg and putting it under his head as I think we know what he’s going for here! HE’S ATTEMPTING TO GO FOR THE TORTURE CHAMBERS! BROCK LOCK ABOUT TO BE SYNCHED IN ON MS. CASH IN THE VAULT!

James Peters: But Darcy is continuing to fight back! Darcy slamming her foot into the face of Terry before he can fully lift her off the ground as Terry is finding himself in a rough spot here is he going to continue to lock in the submission?! TERRY LIFTS DARCY UP OFF THE GROUND AS HE TRANSITIONS IT INTO A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!

Persephone: Hah couldn’t even lock in a submission on her, apparently he’s giving it a second go. But this time Terry is pulling Darcy in as he traps the arms, CHAMBERS OF PAIN! FUTURE SHOCK DDT!

Rich Russillo: BUT DARCY SPINS OUT OF IT AS SHE KICKS TERRY IN THE GUT! AXE KICK TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! Darcy stumbling backwards as it’s clear the offense that Terry’s had on her so far has leveled her. Terry beginning to once again attempt to get back up as Darcy grabs him, DARCY! HOW THE HELL DOES SHE HAVE THE STRENGTH LEFT IN HER?! SHE’S LIFTING TERRY ONTO HER SHOULDERS FOR CURTAIN CALL! INVERTED GTS!

James Peters: BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH AS SHE’S FORCED TO LET GO! It gives Terry some room as he falls behind Darcy and stumbles backward, Darcy turning around!

Persephone: RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! CLAYMORE KICK AS WITH THAT AMOUNT OF FAT COLLIDING WITH HER SHE MIGHT’VE SNAPPED HER NECK! TERRY GOING FOR THE PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEE-

(Immediately the Ref is pulled out of the ring before the count can finish. SOSA Henderson is seen as the crowd begins to give their loud reaction for him is arguing with him as the Ref is absolutely dumbfounded. Terry is back up to his feet as he looks around before focusing his attention in on SOSA. SOSA with a slight smirk on his face holds his hands up as he backs away from the Referee, who rolls back into the ring. Terry continues to keep his sights on the EAW Champion as he yells at him in which SOSA completely ignores as he slowly makes his way up the ramp…)

Rich Russillo: DARCY ROLLING UP TERRY! PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Spotlight Savior’ plays up as Darcy May Morgan slowly rolls out of the ring. Terry sits up absolutely confused, irritated, and angered as he looks around completely unknowing of whatever in the world just happened. Darcy looks to the camera to the right of her as she leans against the barricade as she simply gives a shrug with a smile on her face before she raises her own hand in victory as the Ref hands her the Cash In The Vault briefcase and she circles around the ring)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… DARCY MAY MORGAN!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: Wow, what a finish that we just saw. Terry put up his best effort and hell he was a hair close to the win, and he could’ve got it if it weren’t for the interference by SOSA Henderson as he pulled the Ref out of the ring. Definitely fueling the fire a bit more between the two as SOSA knows how to get the gears whirling in Terry’s head. Nonetheless, Darcy gets the victory in this well awaited bout.

Persephone: Look at him, he looks like one of those blobfish right now, what an idiot…

Stew-O: Well that’s probably not what Terry Chambers wants to here right now!

(Terry rolls out of the ring as SOSA, looking satisfied in himself has turned away and walked up to the stage. Terry runs up to him as he turns him around)

James Peters: TERRY WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! BUT SOSA BARELY MANAGES TO EVADE AS HE LAUNCHES HIMSELF FORWARD! WE HAVE A BRAWL ON OUR HANDS NOW AS BOTH OF THEM ARE TRADING LEFTS AND RIGHTS!

Persephone: HAH! LOOK AT THOSE IDIOTS! I BET SOSA IS GONNA WIN! 20 BUCKS RIGHT HERE AND NOW! REX IS THE MAIN EVENT BUT ATLEAST THIS’LL KEEP ME ENTERTAINED!

Rich Russillo: BOTH OF THEM ARE JUST ATTACKING ONE ANOTHER AS TERRY! MOMENT OF SILENCE! HEADBUTT ACROSS THE SKULL OF SOSA SENDS HIM BACKWARD!

(Immediately SOSA stumbles off of the ramp and to the ground next to it as he stumbles away off of the stage. Terry attempts to lunge forward and grab ahold of him as SOSA continues to retreat away with a smile on his face as he does so. Terry is seething as the last shot is of them looking at one another as SOSA gives a wave before heading through the curtain as Voltage would fade out to commercial break from there)

(Commercial for Corona beer featuring the Corona Hombres, where they remind everyone that the drink and the virus are NOT the same thing.)

(Voltage returns from commercial break to show Bella Braxton stood in the center of the ring, holding an EAW-branded microphone.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: ONE FALL!

(‘Forgotten’ by Avril Lavigne hits the speakers, as a mix of cheers and boos flood the arena for the returning Constance Blevins, who walks through the curtains, onto the stage, now sporting an eyepatch over her right eye.)

James Peters: And here she comes, the returning Constance Blevins, who had been put out of action many months ago, in the middle of 2020, one of the worst years in history. But now she’s back, and quite possibly, can start 2021 off with a bang!

Rich Russillo: Having returned to take out Sienna Jade at Road To Redemption, AND reuniting with Minerva, she’s already made quite the impact. Tonight will be no different. She’s taking on a rookie, so it’s going to be easy work, I say.

James Peters: Over the past few months we’ve learned that someone being a rookie doesn’t mean easy work, you know?

Rich Russillo: Do you mean Holly Arrow? Yeah uh, she’s not a rookie. Just a rookie here.

James Peters: :wow:

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. Weighing in at 120 pounds… ‘THE FORGOTTEN’ CONSTAAAAAAAAAANCE BLEEEEEEEVIIIIIIIIINS!!!

(Constance climbs onto the apron, before going up the turnbuckles and posing on the top rope. She drops into the ring, as her theme fades out. ‘Masterpiece’ by SCANDAL hits the speakers, as Miku Sakai walks out onto the stage, accompanied by Hikari Kanno.)

Rich Russillo: So as I was talking about… rookie!

James Peters: As I was talking about… being a rookie doesn’t mean instant loss! Anyone can beat anyone, at any day of the week. All it takes is a bad night, luck, or the right amount of skill! We haven’t even seen Miku in an EAW ring yet.

Rich Russillo: Are you telling me The Woogieman could defeat Mr. DEDEDE?

James Peters: Let’s be real, who can The Woogieman NOT beat?

Rich Russillo: Everyone. Literally everyone.

James Peters: :skip:

Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent… hailing from Fukui, Japan, weighing in at 110 pounds… MIKUUUUUU SAKAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!

(Miku Sakai climbs onto the apron and enters the ring. She and Hikari pose together, before walking to their corner to talk strategy, before Hikari exits.)

Rich Russillo: Probably planning some scheme to cheat to victory!

James Peters: :usure:

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: And we are underway, as we are about to witness the debut of Miku Sakai against the returning Constance Blevins! Now whoever deserves this victory more is very subjective. Does a return or debut matter more? Who can truly say? But the fact of the matter is, a win for either one will do great for them. Constance Blevins will be able to get back on track, however Miku Sakai needs to prove that she’s more than just some “new talent”! Either way, regardless of who needs it more, these two need to win this match!

Rich Russillo: Miku and Constance begin to circle the ring, looking to grasp a feel of the atmosphere before going all out with their moves, locking their hands for a test of strength! But the smarts go to Constance’s corner, due to her having more experience, as she pushes Miku’s hand backwards before they fully lock up! A neat tactic into giving herself control, and possibly throwing Miku off her tracks, which we’ll find out later on. Constance manages to push her opponent to a knee, before transitioning into a hammerlock, one in which drags Miku down to the ground for more effect!

James Peters: A great transition by Constance, and an even better takedown. All she needs to do now is keep her there, and perhaps we can see an early submission? Though, I heavily doubt that could be the end of the match! Constance tries to slide into a dragon sleeper, but Miku Sakai is one step ahead, and quickly rolls back into a cover!

ONEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: But it’s quickly kicked out of, as Miku takes a few steps back… BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD TO TRY AND HIT THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER- Only for Constance to push her backwards into the ropes! Miku bounces forward and attempts a lariat, however it’s ducked, before transitioning into a German Suplex!

Rich Russillo: Miki doesn’t let this suplex land, however, locking her legs around Constance’s left leg, before rolling onto her back and taking her down, forcing her to trip forward and land on her stomach, before rolling into a cross-legged pinfall attempt!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: But much like last time, Constance is able to kick out! It’s clearly too early for a legitimate finish of the match to occur, and Miku tried to catch Constance off guard with a surprise pinfall twice now, a third definitely won’t work. You know what she needs to do? Hit the most dangerous move in history; THE OVERDRIVE!

Persephone: What the fuck?

Rich Russillo: I know, it’s a bit too brutal. Sorry.

Persephone: :dahell:

James Peters: Miku and Constance rise to their feet at, near enough, the same time, as Miku stumbles back into the corner. Constance runs forward to attack, but Miku gets a boot up, before climbing to the middle rope- Only for Constance to push her down to the outside onto the apron! HOWEVER SHE CATCHES HERSELF, HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES, BEFORE ROLLING TO HER FEET!

Rich Russillo: MIKU SAKAI WITH A KNEE TO CONSTANCE BLEVINS OVER THE TOP ROPE, LANDING ON HER FEET ON THE MAT TOO! SHE’S SHOWING HER ATHLETICISM OFF AT THE START OF THIS MATCH, BUT ALSO THAT KNEE ROCKED CONSTANCE BLEVINS! THERE’S ALL THE POSSIBILITY THAT IT COULD’VE GIVEN MIKU A TARGET IN THIS MATCH ALREADY!

James Peters: Somehow, however, Constance doesn’t drop to the ground! Instead she remains on her feet, albeit dazed, and Miku sees this! She quickly runs forward to hit another knee- But Constance comes to her senses, and moves out of the way, which sends Miku straight into the corner she escaped to! However that wasn’t a great trip, as it was her knee crashing against the turnbuckles! That is not a place you need to be in, a knee injury in a wrestling match is one of the worst injuries you can sustain, other than brain damage, or worse. You need to rely on your legs to carry you through the match, even if your upper body is heavily damaged, your legs need to work so you can actually get back up! You can’t win a match if you can’t stand up. Being a heap on the floor will do nothing for you but cause you to lose. Maybe even cause her to walk into her next match not 100%, if thinks go from bad to worse. Miku best hope that her knee isn’t too badly damaged, or else SHE will be the one with a target on her!

Rich Russillo: Constance looks to take that knee and turn it into a target, like you said, but Miku is smart about it! She places her leg on the outside of the ropes, forcing the referee to pull Constance away from Miku Sakai, due to the rope break! What a mind she has on her!

Persephone: That’s too close to something Gavin would say. That’s too much PTSD from last week.

Rich Russillo: :oh:

James Peters: Miku steps out from the ropes, and Constance walks forward- BUT SHE’S TRIPPED UP AND SENT FLYING INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE! NO! SHE CATCHES HERSELF- HOLD ON! THE MIDDLE ROPE IS EXPOSED! MIKU ISN’T DONE THOUGH, SHE SPRINTS TO THE OTHER SIDE AND BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, BEFORE GOING FOR A THIRD KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD- NO! IT’S DODGED, AND MIKU’S KNEE GOES STRAIGHT INTO THE METAL! MIKU MADE THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN! THIS TIME IT’S REALLY GONNA COST HER! HITTING THE TURNBUCKLES IS ONE THING, BUT AN EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE IS ANOTHER! SHE BEGINS TO HOP BACKWARDS, BEFORE CONSTANCE HITS A CHOP BLOCK, TAKING OUT THAT KNEE AGAIN!

Rich Russillo: This is just an all-out assault on that knee right now! Constance has begun punching the kneecap, the part that connected with the turnbuckles twice! It’s now being assaulted, and damaged, to the best of Constance’s ability! And it’s safe to assume that if the damage is bad enough, she won’t be able to walk, which is near enough guaranteed victory for Constance! She quickly stands back up, and now begins to kick underneath the thigh, to just lay into the damage done to the knee!

James Peters: But Miku refuses that attack to continue, as she uses her other leg to kick Constance back so her leg isn’t as damaged as it was intended to be! But to me, using the other leg is just showing the targeting is working. If you look here as she’s getting up, all pressure is removed from that hurt knee, and it’s all put into the other leg. Smart to avoid hurting it more, however it’s not smart to be showing to the world that you have a target. Especially in your first match here, yikes. Constance turns back towards the leg, however Miku Sakai is able to lift her leg out of the way of a kick, before returning fire with a Monkey Flip out of nowhere! But wait! Constance has her caught! BEFORE DUMPING HER ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND HITTING A HUGE ENZUIGIRI, WHICH DROPS MIKU ONTO THE APRON! THIS TIME, SHE ISN’T’ ABLE TO CATCH HERSELF FROM A HUGE FALL!

Rich Russillo: A hard bump onto the apron, before crashing to the outside, sends Miku Sakai into deep trouble! She hasn’t been able to use that leg properly for a short while, she may have landed on it funny on the way down, AND she’s in risk of being counted out! I don’t know about you, but that’s a troubling situation for her to be in right now, and it’s far from the ideal spot she needs to be in to take control of this match! It’s quite literally impossible, and Constance Blevins understands this! She’s looking to exploit that as much as she possibly can, maybe even getting a count out victory here right now! The referee begins to count!

ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

James Peters: Miku Sakai has barely moved on the outside, only time she’s moved is to hold onto her knee. Boy does that look bad for her. I’d be surprised if she was able to even get back up after that, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough if she’s able to power through and come out victorious, or at least get through a little bit more of this matchup. It would be a shame if she couldn’t.

FIVE! SIX!

James Peters: We’re up to a six count now, and she’s only just making it to her knees, however it doesn’t look too promising on her behalf. Let’s not count her out though! There’s still four more seconds, slowed down, for her to recover, or at the very least, roll in and out of the ring to break the count, and give her more time to recover and get that knee functioning properly. If it even can function properly, right now. Two shots to the turnbuckle, one being exposed, a chop block and some punches is more than enough to make that knee stop working.

SEVEN! EIGHT!

James Peters: Hold on! Miku is using the apron to pull herself back up! For a rookie, that’s great ring awareness, that not a lot of people who are fresh are able to do. It seems like such a simple thing, but it does factor in to having you win the match. Contrary to popular belief, wrestling isn’t “who can hit the most moves”! There’s layers upon layers to the sport, and more often than not, it has to do with skill, smarts, and experience. Miku lacks in the latter, but she’s certainly made up for it tonight with the first two!

NINE! TE-

Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH! THE REFEREE COUNTS TEN- NO! HOLD ON! MIKU WASN’T ABLE TO GET INTO THE RING, HOWEVER SHE WAS ABLE TO PULL CONSTANCE BLEVINS OUT OF THE RING, AND NOW SHE’S TRAPPED BETWEEN THE APRON AND THE APRON COVER! THE COUNT IS BROKEN, AND NOW MIKU IS FIRING DOWN PUNCH AFTER PUNCH AFTER PUNCH ONTO CONSTANCE BLEVINS, SHE MANAGED TO FIND THAT WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY, EVEN IF IT WAS A LAST DITCH EFFORT, QUITE SEEMINGLY! CONSTANCE HAS NOWHERE TO GO!

James Peters: All she can do now is take these punches, and hope Miku buckles, or runs out of energy, but it seems like she made the wrong call letting her get counted out! Miku was able to regain some energy, and some strength. She recovered on the outside, and Constance made a mistake! Hell, even watching Miku so close to the ropes like that was a mistake, that’s what caused her to get dragged to the outside after all, and now she’s the one being beaten down with punches, she’s the one who looks helpless!

Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai now has Constance Blevins set up, ready to hit some sort of move, having lifted her up onto the apron next to the ring post? I don’t exactly know what it could be, but it certainly looks like it’s going to end terribly for one of these women! Whenever the ring post is involved, it always ends up with somebody being knocked out, at least a majority of the time!

Persephone: Like the “hardest part of the ring”, the apron right? :mjpls:

Rich Russillo: Yep! I agree with you on that, honey bun!

Persephone: Is it bad I somewhat missed this, considering I was stuck with Gavin for a few hours last week?

Rich Russillo: Did you just compliment me?

Persephone: Yeah it really is bad. Hate myself for even considering otherwise.

Rich Russillo: :noah:

James Peters: Miku Sakai climbs onto the apron, and now begins to adjust Constance’s positioning! She faces her towards the other ring post, before walking back to it herself! What does she have planned?? Oh no… OH NO! SHE RUNS FORWARD ON THE APRON, BEFORE LEAPING… MUSTACHE RIDE!!! BRONCO BUSTER INTO THE RING POST, POPPING CONSTANCE BLEVINS’ HEAD LIKE A ZIT RIGHT AGAINST IT!

Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE BLEVINS HAS TO BE OUT OF IT! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY SHE’S WAKING UP FROM THAT! I DON’T KNOW HOW MIKU DID IT, BUT IN A SPLIT SECOND, SHE SHIFTED THE TIDEWAVE OF THIS MATCH COMPLETELY ON ITS HEAD, AND MANAGED TO REGAIN FULL CONTROL OF THIS MATCH, MAYBE HAVING WON THE FUCKING THING RIGHT HERE! ALL SHE NEEDS TO DO IS CAPITALIZE! SHE ROLLS CONSTANCE INTO THE RING, NOW SHE JUST NEEDS TO COVER HER- AND… SHE’S NOT DOING THAT??? WHAT THE HELL IS SHE DOING? COVER HER! DON’T GO TO THE TOP ROPE!

James Peters: IT SEEMS SHE’S LOOKING TO MAKE SURE CONSTANCE BLEVINS IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT, AND I KNOW WHAT MOVE SHE’S LOOKING TO HIT HERE! SHE CALLS IT SKY FALL, WHICH IS A DIVING CORKSCREW CUTTER! IF SHE HITS IT HERE, IT’S GAME OVER, AND LIGHTS OUT FOR CONSTANCE BLEVINS, WHO IS BARELY CLIMBING UP TO HER FEET RIGHT HERE! OH MY! HERE IT COMES! ‘SKY FAAAAAAAAAALL’!

Rich Russillo: NO! SHE’S CAUGHT WITH ‘THE ABOLISHMENT’ OUT OF MID-AIR! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE, LEAPING INTO THE AIR, CATCHING MIKU STRAIGHT IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! MIKU LOOKS TO BE COMPLETELY OUT OF IT, AS SHE CRASHES DOWN TO THE MAT, NOT MOVING! CONSTANCE CRAWLS TO THE COVER, AND LIES ON TOP OF MIKU!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Forgotten’ by Avril Lavigne hits the speakers as Constance Blevins rolls off of Miku Sakai, before slowly getting back up to her feet, clearly exhausted after such a performance from Miku.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… CONSTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANCE BLEEEEEEVIIIIIIIIIINS!

James Peters: Constance Blevins is declared the winner of the match, but let’s not forget that performance from Miki Sakai tonight. That was an extremely impressive first showing from her, and if she keeps up performances like this she’s going to go places. Congratulations to Constance Blevins, but after such a good first impression did Miku Sakai really lose here?

Rich Russillo: Yes. The rookie is the loser. She didn’t win.

James Peters: That’s not what I mean, but sure.

Rich Russillo: Regardless, congratulations to Constance Blevins for a nice victory in her return!

Persephone: Yeah yeah, whatever. Just move on the match is done.

(Constance Blevins has her hand raised by the referee, meanwhile Miku rolls out of the ring and Hikari Kanno goes to tend to her. As Constance celebrates her victory, Voltage fades away from ringside.)

(Backstage…)

(As Constance Blevins is celebrating her victory over Miku Sakai, the camera cuts Backstage to Kasey Kaos who is watching this on a monitor with a pretty lustful look on her face. Very intrigued and focused on the returning Blevins, her different colored eyes are almost mesmerized at her actions and beauty. Sophia Clarke bravely walks in, she knows that this could be gas poured on an ant pile and lit on fire, and she is the ant, but is dedicated in getting her job done and approaches her wanting to ask the Specialists Champion on her upcoming match tonight against TLA, Sofia clears her throat.)

Sofia Clarke: Excuse me, Kasey can I….

Kasey Kaos: SHUSH!

(The response came a little surprising as Kasey loves to talk when approached but was smitten watching Constance Blevins instead. Sofia starts to wonder if this is not such a good idea and instead should just leave but Kasey grabs her arm and points to the monitor.)

Kasey Kaos: SHUSH! Can’t you see that we are intrigues by this beautiful so-called “Forgotten One”? We mean one half of the former Unified Tag Team Champions in Heavenly Hell and partner of Minerva, oh you know how much we like and respect Minerva, so yes, we are rather captured by this one and her return. How cute is it she wears the eye patch? Doesn’t even look like she missed a beat. This brings a smile to our face. Look at her Sofia, the milky skin, plump lips, it is so great that she has returned and best part of it all, Sofia? She is ripe, right for the taking. Oh how we would love for her to cross paths with us, soon….. very soon.

(Sofia is obviously a bit weirded out and slowly backpeddling some wondering if now the best time is to make her exit. But even with this very odd and somewhat troubling infatuation Kasey Kaos seems to have on Constance, Sofia as a journalist continues to do her job.)

Sofia Clarke: I don’t mean to pull you away from admiring Constance Blevins, I think all of us are happy to see her return back to the EAW and Voltage as many thought her career was probably over, but I do need to ask you about your match with TLA tonight?

Kasey Kaos: TLA? The Vato Loco? The Corona Hombre? The fact TLA is simply a moniker to us, he should be in Mexican Beer Commercials for all we care. TLA to everyone else is a legend, to us he’s an afterthought. TLA will learn that we are not here to have a good time, Sofia. We are here for pain. Constance signifies what we like most, soft on the outside, rough on the inside, but TLA, he is a pig, pimping his whores all over the EAW like he means something. Tonight we teach him, that he is nothing more than stepping stone, and we will crush his skull doing so.

(Sofia Clarke clears her throat.)

Sofia Clarke: And Holly Arrow next week after she defeated Lisa Wren and became the number one contender to your title?

(Kasey tils her head back and starts to laugh loudly before stopping quickly and glaring right into Sofia Clarke.)

Kasey Kaos: Holly Arrow? Are you trying to insult us?

Sofia Clarke: NO…. I…..

Kasey Kaos: SHUSH! Holly Arrow, just the fact both of those two were even competing for a shot at our Specialists Championship is a joke in itself. We are one of the top champions in this promotion and you consider Holly on our level? She is greener than moss, she’s barely had a month in the EAW and suddenly now she wants to try and take away what we have defeated the very best for? What Holly represents is the lamb to the slaughter, the sacrifice in which is required once a month for us. DO you know what we will do? Enjoy the easy title defense against someone as naive and as pretty little Holly Arrow is. Oh yes, she represents the cover girl of the EAW, but don’t you understand Sofia that we are about nothing pretty, instead our beauty lies in the ugly and filthy truth of the darkness within. Do you want to know what Holly Arrow is to us?

Sofia Clarke: I want to know yes and….

Kasey Kaos: NOTHING! That is exactly what she is to Kasey Kaos, absolutely NOTHING. It’s sad really that she was put in this predicament, but you cannot blame us for what is going to happen next week, or even this week to TLA. Holly Arrow will receive the greatest beating of her life and then she will be NOTHING to the Specialists Champion and we will continue to dominate as that champion for many more to come. Sofia, we admire your tenacity, the drive to find the story and get it first, so since we know that you will be seeing Holly Arrow, give her this message for us. Tell her that after next week her world will change, and she will then become a believer in the muck and avarice which has consumed those who want the gold we hold. This doesn’t represent the EAW or even Voltage, it represents that devils can shine in the light too. Look at those who have proven them wrong, Kasey Kaos, Minerva and yes, silky smooth, Constance Blevins. Now, if you will excuse us, make sure Holly gets a good night’s rest this week. Make sure Holly tells her family how much she loves them, and make sure that Holly knows that come next Voltage will be her last at the hands of Kasey Kaos. Now, if you will excuse us, we are enjoying the show, so in another words, GET OUT!

(Sofia quickly scrambles almost dropping the mic and heads out of the locker room where Kasey Kaos starts to laugh, turning back to the monitor and watch Constance celebrate some more before leaving the ring.)

(“Ambitionz Az a Ridah” by Tupac plays as the virtual crowd gives a standing ovation as TLA drives from the back and into the side of the stage in a Mexican themed lowrider. Some of the bitches from the Poon Palace are in the other seats meanwhile, TLA is in the driver’s seat. He parks the lowrider on the side of the stage before the poons take turns kissing TLA in the cheek and showing him love.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!!

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM THE POON PALACE IN MIAMI, FLORIDA…WEIGHING IN 210 POUNDS…. HE IS ‘LA PANTERA SEXUAL’…TLA!!!!!

James Peters: TLA had a wonderful showing at Road to Redemption. One of the most impressive things that he did in the match was eliminated Rex McAllister from the match —

Persephone: Can we not talk about that? Thanks.

Rich Russillo: He managed to find himself in the final three of the match! Now, he is looking to begin his 2021 with a victory underneath his belt, but his opponent may be as unpredictable and wild as him, so it’s something that he may need to keep an eye on going into this match!

Persephone: God, I can’t believe that he made it further in the match than Rexy. It’s an abomination that Rexy is not the EAW Champion! TLA is on my shitlist and that’s something that he should be aware of.

(“Ambitionz Az a Ridah” fades as it’s soon replaced with “Cry Little Sister” by Marilyn Manson as the crowd gives a negative reception as Kasey Kaos does her usual entrance as the Specialists Championship shines on her waist.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…FROM THE LAKE OF FIRE… SHE IS THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… ‘MISS MAYHEM’… KASEY KAOS!!!!!

James Peters: Now, here’s a woman who seemed to have done the unthinkable and that’s retained her Specialists Championship in the Specialists Chamber at Road to Redemption. I think that a lot of people were betting that she was going to be a transitional champion, but she proved a lot of doubters wrong that night.

Rich Russillo: Some people have stated that if Andrea Valentine never stuck her nose in Harlow Reichert’s business, Harlow would be the Specialists Champion.

Persephone: Yeah, I think Kasey got lucky at Road to Redemption, but I don’t see that happening at King of Elite.

James Peters: She is stepping into the ring against a decorated wrestler in TLA. He is a different breed and one of the best underdogs in this company’s history. There’s no doubt that he is going to give it everything that he has to win!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(Kasey Kaos and TLA meet each other in the middle of the ring. Both Elitists are holding down their glares at one another as Kasey has a look of intrigue on her face. Meanwhile, TLA is looking at her like she’s some sort of freak, but not the freaks that they have in the Poon Palace.)

Rich Russillo: TLA nails Kasey Kaos with his variation of a pimp slap called the ‘Swag Shot.’ I don’t think that Kasey and her multiple personalities are going to take that lightly. But, what in the hell?!?!

Persephone: Kasey Kaos has a grin on her face as she seems to be laughing at TLA. It seems like she enjoyed that Swag Shot a little too much.

Kasey Kaos: (off-mic) Hit us again. We like this game.

James Peters: TLA delivers another Swag Shot to Kasey Kaos, BUT KASEY MANAGES TO CATCH TLA’S HAND BEFORE HE CONNECTS WITH THE SLAP! KASEY PULLS TLA’S HAND CLOSER TO HER AND GIVES IT A GIANT LICK ACROSS THE HAND!

Rich Russillo: TLA is quick to get his hand away from Kasey as he whips it on the side of his pants, but Kasey manages to nail him with an ‘Ask the Angels’ a spin kick as that knocks TLA back towards the ropes! TLA manages to catch himself towards the ropes as Kasey Kaos charges towards TLA, but TLA lifts her out of the ring, but Kasey manages to land on the apron as TLA turns around! Kasey nails him with a forearm before she steps back inside the ring! Kasey charges towards TLA, but TLA rushes towards her with a dropkick as that takes the Specialists Champion down!

Persephone: Kasey Kaos manages to recollect herself to her feet, but TLA follows up that dropkick with a step up enziguri as that knocks Kasey to her side, but she’s not completely down yet! TLA pulls her closer before picking her up and connecting with tiger suplex as she has the champion down in the perfect position for the count! Might as well do us the favor and end this match right now!

OOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!

James Peters: Kasey Kaos manages to roll to her feet, bUT SHE MANAGES TO COUNTER WITH VAE VICTIS, AN INVERTED DDT ON THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AS SHE MANAGES TO SLAM HIM DOWN! KASEY QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!

OOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!

Rich Russillo: TLA kicks out quickly! Now, it seems like Kasey Kaos is getting TLA to his feet as she has her arms wrapped around her waist and seems to lift him up with a German suplex! But, TLA manages to land on his feet as Kasey turns around, BUT TLA RUNS TOWARDS HER AS SHE TAKES HER DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE! KASEY MANAGES TO GET TO HER FEET, BUT TLA MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH ONE LAST CLOTHESLINE! KASEY TRIES TO GET UP, BUT TLA MANAGES TO DROPKICK HER TO THE CORNER! THE CHAMPION GOES SLAMMING HARD AT THE CORNER AS TLA RUSHES TOWARDS HER WITH A RUNNING UPPERCUT TO THE CORNER! Kasey Kaos staggers forward, but TLA manages to catch her before following that up with a scoop slam!

Persephone: TLA applies a basement headlock on Kasey Kaos. It’s one of the wrestling moves that I hate because it makes the match last longer. There’s no purpose for them.

James Peters: They’re normally used to keep an opponent down, which is what TLA is doing with Kasey at the moment. Now, it seems like TLA is getting to one knee, but he still has that headlock applied to the Specialists Champion. But, it seems like Kasey is trying to push TLA away from her, but it doesn’t seem to be working at the moment! TLA manages to take her down with a headbutt out of nowhere! Kasey is trying to shake the cobwebs out of her head as TLA manages to rebound himself off the ropes and connect with a basement dropkick as Kasey falls to her back!

Rich Russillo: TLA stands in front of her left side before connecting with a standing shooting star press! He hits Kasey Kaos on the ribs as it seems like Kasey has found herself in a bit of trouble at the moment. TLA is bringing that fire to her in this match! NOW, TLA IS GRABBING HER BY THE LEGS! HE’S GOING FOR THAT LASSO FROM EL PASO, ‘AR15’ ON KASEY! KASEY IS TRYING TO KICK TLA AWAY FROM HER! SHE IS TRYING TO DUCK HER HEAD OUT OF THE RING, BUT TLA MANAGES TO GET HER BY ONE OF HER LEGS BEFORE PULLING HER AWAY FROM THE ROPES! TLA KICKS HER IN THE RIBS BEFORE LOCKING IN THE SUBMISSION!

Persephone: The move is locked in as Kasey Kaos looks to be in intense pain at the moment. Do you know what would make this better? SUBMIT NOW! I’m not kidding. The sooner this match ends, the sooner I can see Rex and that would make me a very happy woman. I think that everyone would want me to be a happy woman.

James Peters: I think Rich does. :troll: But, Kasey seems conflicted on what she should be doing at the moment. It seems like she is desperately trying to reach for the bottom rope, but TLA has the move locked in quite well! Kasey is literally digging her nails underneath the mat as she tries to pull herself closer to the bottom rope. I mean, she’s literally trying to get her nails into the mat as she uses all of her strength to get closer to the bottom rope. I think that even TLA is starting to feel his grasp on her loosening as Kasey is needing to drag her entire body until she gets her hand on the bottom rope!

Rich Russillo: You can see that Kasey Kaos is inches away from getting her hand on the bottom rope as…SHE MAKES IT! TLA doesn’t rush in releasing the hold. I don’t think that he wants to risk any chances of winning the match. The referee manages to back up TLA from Kasey while Kasey is trying to use the assistance of the rope rope to help her to her feet, but at the first sign of Kasey getting to her feet, TLA MANAGES TO NAIL HER WITH A BIG BOOT AS THAT TAKES HER DOWN TO ONE KNEE! TLA PICKS HER UP BEFORE SUPLEXING HER TOWARDS THE ROPES, BUT SHE ENDS UP FINDING HERSELF IN A TREE-OF-WOE POSITION AS TLA RUNS TOWARDS HER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SLIDING FOREARM, NAILING HER IN THE FACE!

Persephone: TLA slides himself underneath the bottom rope! Kasey Kaos manages to lift her entire body up, so that she’s sitting on the top rope! TLA looks towards the ring, but is met face-to-face with the Specialists Champion, who has a demented smirk on her face! TLA seems to be a little startled that Kasey is looking at him! She gives a demented, but playful wave as TLA manages to step onto the apron and look at Kasey in the face!

James Peters: The two of them look across from each other, BUT IT’S KASEY WHO NAILS TLA WITH A HEADBUTT, BUT TLA MANAGES TO BALANCE HIMSELF ON THE APRON! KASEY DELIVERS ANOTHER HEADBUTT TO TLA, BUT THIS TIME, TLA SEEMS TO BE TRYING TO KEEP HIMSELF ON THE APRON! KASEY DELIVERS ANOTHER HEADBUTT! THIS HEADBUTT WAS HARSHER THAN THE OTHER ONES AS TLA GOES FLYING OUT OF THE RING!

Persephone: Now, it seems like Kasey Kaos is trying to balance herself on the apron as she is stalking TLA up to his feet before —

Rich Russillo: FALL FROM PARADISE! THE DIVING HURRICANRANA ON THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AS BOTH OF THE ELITISTS ARE DOWN AT THE MOMENT! THE QUESTION AT THE MOMENT IS WHO WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO THEIR FEET! From the looks of things, it seems like it will be Kasey who gets to her feet as she gets TLA to his feet, but TLA pushes her towards our table! TLA wants to be able to get to his own feet in his own power! Meanwhile, it seems like Kasey is trying to get on top of our desk as TLA tries to catch up to her, but Kasey from our announce table with a crossbody!

James Peters: BUT, TLA MANAGES TO CATCH THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION BEFORE FACING HIMSELF TOWARDS THE RING POST! HE RUSHES TOWARDS THE RING POST AS HE RAMS KASEY KAOS BACK FIRST AGAINST IT! Kasey is arching her back in pain as TLA manages to get himself to his feet as he grabs Kasey before rolling her back into the ring before the referee makes it to the ten count! TLA goes for the top rope and it seems like we’re going to see ‘La Pantera Sexual’ going for another one of his moves! He keeps an eye on Kasey to make sure that the Specialists Champion is down!

Persephone: 420 ON KASEY KAOS! TLA WITH THE COVER! CAN THIS BE THE WAY TO END THE MATCH? 🙏🏻

OOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

James Peters: KASEY KAOS KICKS OUT!!!!!

Rich Russillo: TLA is looking back at the referee, who clarifies that it was indeed a two count! You really gotta keep an eye on these kick outs! TLA was SO close to winning the match for himself, but in these types of situations, TLA can’t help, but get a little frustrated with himself! He can’t show that type of emotion or he will be bound to make some mistakes in this match up! TLA begins to apply a chinlock on Kasey, hoping to weaken ‘Miss Mayhem’ in this match! TLA lifts her chin up to apply more pressure as Kasey begins to cry out in pain! The referee is asking Kasey if she wants to throw in the towel now, but Kasey is telling him that “we’re not giving up.”

Persephone: Honestly, this match isn’t for the championship. Even if Kasey finds herself in the losing end of this match, she still has her title. She has her next contender to worry about. Losing to TLA isn’t a big deal.

Rich Russillo: Is that what you tried to tell Rex? :troll:

Persephone: Don’t even remind me, Rich. TLA is the reason why Rexy isn’t EAW Champion and I will never forgive him for that.

James Peters: It’s still a sensitive topic for her, Rich. TLA is placing his knee on the back of the champion, which is applying more pressure to her! I don’t think that TLA is looking for a submission here, but the best thing that he is able to do in this scenario is make sure that Kasey Kaos stays down long enough for him to secure the win.

Rich Russillo: But, Kasey Kaos is refusing to go down! She is refusing to give up as she is trying to use all of her might to get herself to her feet! TLA is trying to keep her down by her chin, but Kasey is fighting through the pain as she tries to arch herself out of the chinlock as she manages to do that! She spins herself around before nailing TLA in the stomach! She rebounds off the vertical set of ropes before connecting with a spinning neckbreaker on him! TLA goes down as Kasey tries to get to her feet as she picks TLA up before nailing him with an uppercut! TLA staggers back as Kasey manages to clutch TLA by his arm and whips him towards the other set of horizontal ropes, but TLA manages to connect with a shoulder block on the Specialists Champion!

Persephone: Kasey manages to get down to one knee as she connects with a jawbreaker on him! TLA staggers back, but he comes at her with a roundhouse kick, but Kasey manages to duck the roundhouse kick and sweeps underneath TLA’s feet as he falls to the ground! Kasey gets on top of TLA before mounting him with punches! TLA is trying to cover his face from all the punches, but Kasey manages to get him with each one! Kasey manages to pin TLA’s shoulders to the mat!

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!

James Peters: TLA manages to get a shoulder up before Kasey Kaos could sneak away with the victory! But, TLA manages to get himself up as he has a roll up on Kasey! Is he going to be the one that sneaks away with the victory?!?

OOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos rolls herself to her feet — Cherry Bomb! The shining wizard on TLA, but TLA manages to go for another roll up, but before the referee can get in position for the count, Kasey manages to roll herself back to her feet! The nails TLA in the stomach before connecting with a headbutt that takes the former World Champion to the ground! Kasey manages to wrap her arms around the waist of TLA before taking him down with a deadlift German suplex! KASEY RECOLLECTS HERSELF TO HER FEET AS SHE STALKS TLA, WHO IS LOOKING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET BEFORE KASEY TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SPEAR! IT’S NOT AS DEVASTATING AS MR. DEDEDE’S SPEAR, BUT IT’S ENOUGH TO TAKE TLA AND POSSIBLY FOR THE THREE COUNT! KASEY WITH THE COVER!

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Persephone: FUCK! TLA KICKED OUT!

James Peters: TLA WITH A KICK OUT! TLA is not ready to throw in the towel for this match! He wants to get a victory over the Specialists Champion! Kasey Kaos seems to be upset that she couldn’t keep TLA long enough for the three count, but she’s not going to stay bummed out about it! She is going to continue on with this match! When we see Kasey getting frustrated, it makes her more dangerous. It makes the voices inside her head more dangerous and that’s not something that TLA wants to happen! What would happen to him will be unclear, but it won’t be pretty.

Rich Russillo: KASEY IS UP TO HER FEET AS SHE STALKS TLA BACK TO HIS FEET! TLA IS TRYING TO REGAIN SOME BALANCE WITH EACH STEP THAT HE TAKES! HE IS TRYING TO STAND COMPLETELY ON HIS TWO FEET AS KASEY RUSHES TOWARDS HIM — ASK THE ANGELS! THE SPIN KICK ON TLA!

Persephone: TLA DUCKS FROM THE SPIN KICK AT THE LAST SECOND AS KASEY KAOS STUMBLES FORWARD IN RESPONSE! But, TLA dropkicks Kasey on her back as she manages to fall into the middle ropes! The front half of her is on the outside as it seems like TLA is in a decent position for his next move! TLA rebounds off the opposite set of ropes before connecting with a 305, which is a tiger feint kick as he nails Kasey in the face! Kasey falls back as TLA springboards off the top ropes before nailing the Specialists Champion with a flying forearm which takes her down as well!

James Peters: TLA gets Kasey Kaos in position for the Mexican Destroyer, which is his version of the Canadian Destroyer, BUT KASEY MANAGES TO LIFT TLA OVER HIS HEAD, BUT TLA MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET AS KASEY TURNS AROUND! TLA CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK WHICH STAGGERS HER BACK A BIT! TLA delivers another dropkick to the champion as she falls back against the ropes! TLA rushes towards her before kneeing her in the ribs and following that up with a running bulldog! TLA rolls Kasey over to her back before going for the cover!

OOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOO–

Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos gets a shoulder up! TLA begins to elbow Kasey in the face, hoping to keep ‘Miss Mayhem’ down long enough! TLA manages to stand on his feet before connecting with a double foot stomp on Kasey’s ribs! You can see that Kasey is beginning to clutch onto her ribs! TLA manages to get Kasey before throwing her to one of the corners! TLA takes a couple of steps back before rushing towards Kasey at the corner with a meteora, nailing her in the ribs again!

Persephone: TLA MANAGES TO STAND ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS HE NAILS KASEY KAOS WITH SOME PUNCHES TO THE TOP OF HER HEAD!

Crowd: UNO! DOS! TRES! CUARTO! CINCO! SIES! SIETE! OCHO! NUEVE! DIEZ!

James Peters: WHAT IN THE WORLD? KASEY KAOS IS LIFTING TLA OVER HIS HEAD BEFORE NAILING HIM DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB! SHE HAS TLA IN A ROLL UP POSITION!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS HAS HER FEET ON THE ROPES! THE REFEREE DOESN’T SEE IT!!!

TTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Persephone: TLA MANAGES TO GET HIMSELF OUT OF THE ROLL UP ATTEMPT! BUT, HE HAS KASEY KAOS BY HER ARM! HE HAS KASEY BY HER ARM! CROSSED PATHS! THE CROSS ARMBAR ON THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! HE HAS THE MOVE LOCKED IN!!! IS KASEY GOING TO SUBMIT TO TLA RIGHT NOW!!! KASEY IS SCRAMBLING FOR A WAY OUT OF THE MOVE!!!

James Peters: KASEY KAOS MANAGES TO COUNTER WITH A ROLL UP!!!!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO! TLA MANAGES TO LOCK HER IN THE CROSSED PATHS AGAIN! WAIT, LOOK AT THIS??

Persephone: TLA TRANSITIONS THE CROSSED ARMBREAKER INTO A ROLLING PIN ON KASEY KAOS!!!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Ambitionz Az A Ridah” plays once again as the virtual crowd delivers a huge pop as TLA rolls out of the ring before he could feel Kasey Kaos’ wrath. Kasey is in disbelief of what just happened. To say that she’s pissed is an understatement, but if looks could kill, TLA would be dead already.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE WINNER OF THE MATCH…TLA!!!!!

James Peters: TLA sneaks away with a victory over Kasey Kaos! He outsmarted the Specialists Champion tonight. He was ready for all the games that she was going to play tonight! He was going to make sure that she didn’t leave with a tainted victory. I almost thought that Kasey was going to win after she managed to lift TLA as he was delivering those punches to the top of her head, but TLA kicking out of that was amazing.

Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos thought that she had TLA’s number on a couple of points in this match, but TLA and his heart is something that needs to be talked about. You may either like or hate him, but he seems to find himself on a roll right now!

Persephone: Eck, can we move onto Rex right now?

James Peters: Wait, look who’s out!

(Constance Blevins is shown coming out from the back as he walks down the ramp and heads towards the ring. But, she stops at the apron as Kasey Kaos has her eyes on Constance. Constance is laughing at Kasey’s misfortune, which only seems to annoy the Specialists Champion.)

Constance Blevins: (off-mic) Watching me? Hopefully, watching me teaches you how to be a better champion and competitor.

(The referee hands Kasey Kaos her championship, but Kasey snatches her championship from the referee before hugging it. With that statement from Constance, she turns on her heels and heads towards the back. Kasey is staring back at Constance as she clutches her title and glares at Constance’s direction.)

(Awareness ad encouraging Elitists to stay safe featuring Ronan Malosi… And Ryan Wilson since Ronan is not the most trustworthy guy.)

(Voltage returns from break and cuts to Bella.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOW CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!

(“Enemy Strike” begins to blast across the PA system and crowd greets Myles with a mixed reaction.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA… WEIGHING IN AT 227 POUNDS… HE IS ‘THE WARLORD OF EAW’… THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… MYLES!!!

James Peters: I have literally been waiting all night for this match. I can’t wait to see how these two fare against one another. So many people have been waiting to see Myles take on Drake in a one on one match, and quite frankly, I am one of those people.

Persephone: Well, I’m not and I don’t care about this match.

Rich Russillo: Good thing your opinion doesn’t usually factor in too what we see and don’t see.

(Myles is in the ring now, and he is getting set for the match. “Tenth Dimension” begins to play and of course, the crowd begins to boo.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT… HAILING FROM THE DEAD SEA… WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS… HE IS DRAKE THE REDEEMER!!!

Drake King: :blessed:

Persephone: Oh brother. This guy is annoying.

James Peters: But he definitely knows how to get a reaction from the crowd. These people hate Drake King and something tells me they’re definitely going to want to see Myles win tonight.

(Drake enters the ring, smiles politely at Myles, and offers a handshake. Myles basically tells him to fuck right off, and the referee calls for the bell.)

( DING! DING! DING! )

James Peters: This match is underway as we kick off The Warlord against The Redeemer. This match is quite ironic considering at King Of Elite 2018, these two were involved in a triple threat along with Xander Payne, and two years later, here they are two years later crossing paths yet again. Myles and Drake King have made huge leaps and bounds in their EAW careers and I am sure both of them know that winning this match is something that will surely get them to a great start in the new year.

Rich Russillo: The Redeemer and The Warlord meet in the middle of the ring. They both go for a collar-and-elbow tie-up, however Myles is quick to go around the waist to take him down. Myles hovers and gets a front facelock before King is able to slip out his hands and go around the waist. He wraps his arms around his waist and thrusts him into the ropes. Myles clings onto the top rope while King rolls back safely into the middle of the ring! MYLES JUMPS UP FOR A YAKUZA KICK!! KING GRABS HIS FOOT BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT!!! Drake King with a smile in his face as Myles is hopping on one foot. King politely lets go of his foot and MYLES SWINGS FOR A PUNCH!! DRAKE DUCKS AND LIFTS HIM UP BY THE WAIST!! BACK SUPLEX!!

James Peters: Myles manages to flip out of it and onto his feet! King is clueless as he approaches the corner and turns around. THE WARLORD SHOOTS FROM RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM FOR THE SHOTGUN DROPKICK!!! NO!! KING GRABS BOTH LEGS AND BLOCKS THE KANGAROO DROPKICK AS MYLES IS JUST DANGLING FROM THE REDEEMER’S ARMS!! KING WITH ANOTHER SMILE ON HIS FACE AS HE FALLS BACKWARDS AND SLINGSHOTS MYLES BY THE LEGS OVER THE TOP ROPE!! MYLES IS DEPOSITED OUT OF THE RING AS KING SLIDES OUT OF THE RING TO JOIN HIM!!

Persephone: I am on the cusp of falling asleep on this damn announcer desk right now! King grabs his wrist and THROWS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! The sheer impact sent the steel steps back by a few inches as Drake picked him up and grabbed him for another IRISH WHIP!!! MYLES MANAGES TO TURN IT AROUND AND WHIP DRAKE INSTEAD!! DRAKE MANAGES TO STOP THE BRAKES BEFORE GOING INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! BUT HERE COMES MYLES RUSHING IN FROM BEHIND!!

James Peters: Drake flushes him with a precision superkick to the jaw! Myles is down onto one knee whereas KING SPRINTS TOWARDS HIM AND JUMPS UP!! AND MAKES MYLES MEET HIS JUDGMENT DAY!! NO!! MYLES SIDESTEPS THE CURB STOMP ATTEMPT AND SNATCHES HIM FROM BEHIND!!!! HE HOISTS HIM UP INTO THE AIR AND CHUCKS KING ONTO THE BACK OF HIS NECK ACROSS RINGSIDE WITH A RUTHLESS RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! MYLES GETS HIM BACK INTO THE RING!!! AND HE SPRINGBOARS OFF THE TOP ROPE!! AND HE DRILLS THE REDEEMER ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A BEAUTIFUL SPRINGBOARD METEORA!! BOTH LEGS ARE HOOKED!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
T-

Rich Russillo: KICK-OUT!! Myles immediately brings King back up to his feet and backs him up into the corner! He begins to dump body shot after body shot into the midsection as he is just unloading onto Drake King! Myles showing no mercy and remorse as he just hammers his opponent down! The referee finally separates him, but it doesn’t stop MYLES FROM TAKING A FEW STEPS BACK AND CHARGING INTO THE REDEEMER FOR A CORNER JUMPING FOREARM SMASH!!

James Peters: DENIED!! KING GETS HIS FOOT UP AND MYLES IS MOMENTARILY STAGGERED!!! THIS IS A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR THE REDEEMER AS KING SITS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! AND HE SPRINGS OFF THE SECOND ROPES FOR A JUMPING BLOCKBUSTER!!! BUT MYLES CATCHES HIM IN MID-AIR!! MYLES SNATCHES HIM STRAIGHT INTO A SUPLEX POSITION AND RUNS WITH HIM TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!

Persephone: DRAKE KING EATS A YAKUZA KICK TO THE FACE!! AND MYLES GETS CLOCKED WITH A ROLLING ENZIGURI KICK TO THE MUSHER IN RESPONSE!! King and Myles are standing on spaghetti legs right now as Drake comes from behind and hooks both legs! AND HOOKS HIM UP FOR THE HOOK AND LADDER!! BUT MYLES TURNS IT AROUND AS HE LIFTED HIM UP!! AND HE HAS THE RIPCORD IN!! AND AIMS TO TWIST HIM AROUND!! DRAKE JUMPS UP AND TRANSITIONS INTO THE SINGLE UNDERHOOK!!! DAWN JUSTICE!! AND HE HOISTS HIM UP!!! MYLES GOES AROUND THE WAIST AND COUNTERS IT WITH A SCHOOL BOY!!! THIS COULD BE IT!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: KING POWERS OUT!!!! Myles gets up to his feet and he seems like he wants to end this match already! Myles pulls King up to his feet and lifts him up into the canadian rack! AND HE SPINS HIM OVER FOR THE DDT!! THE WRATH OF PANDORA!!! NO!! KING FLIPS ONTO HIS FEET TO COUNTER IT!! AND HE ROCKS THE WARLORD WITH A SUPERKICK!! MYLES IS STAGGERED AS KING RUNS IN FROM BEHIND AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! MYLES GETS DROPPED ONTO HIS NECK, BUT HE IGNORES THE PAIN AND IMMEDIATELY SHOOTS UP INTO THE AIR!! AND NAILS THE REDEEMER IN THE CHEST WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!

James Peters: The Warlord taking it to the former World Champion as Myles quickly grabs and gets him up to his feet! He grabs the wrist from behind and signals for the end!! MYLES SPINS AND TURNS HIM AROUND FOR THE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE!! AND HE LANDS WITH THE KNE- NO!! DRAKE BLOCKS THE KNEE AND HOISTS HIM UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!!! INTO A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! MYLES IS STUNNED AS HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! AND HE TWISTS AROUND FOR A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!! DRAKE DUCKS AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS!! AND DRILLS THE WARLORD WITH THE HALF NELSON BACKBREAKER!! CROWN OF THORNS CONNECTS AS HE CRAWLS OVER FOR THE COVER!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Persephone: MYLES KICKS OUT!! Drake King gets up to his feet and looks at Myles with frustration. He steps through the ropes and begins ascending the turnbuckles as Myles is just laid out in the center of the ring! Myles is in a supine position while King is up on the third turnbuckle! WAIT A MINUTE!! Myles shoots up off the canvas and leaps onto the top turnbuckle! I do not know where Myles is getting this energy as he lifts King up into a fireman’s carry!! AND HE JUMPS UP OFF WITH HIM AND DRIVES HIM DOWN ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! THAT IS BRUTAL!! SECOND ROPE DROPDOWN CONNECTS AS MYLES GETS UP AND QUICKLY PICKS KING UP INTO THE CANADIAN RACK!! AND CONNECTS WITH WRATH OF PANDORA!! WRATH OF PANDORA!! THIS COULD BE IT!! YES PLEASE!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
T-

James Peters: DRAKE KING POPS HIS SHOULDER UP AT TWO!!! MYLES CAN’T BELIEVE IT! Myles is up on his knees shocked as Drake King is just out! He is out like a light and Myles just can’t process this heart and soul shown by the former World Champion!! Drake King proving that he is one of the best as Myles is impatiently waiting for him to get up to his feet! King is gingerly emerging up to his feet while Myles is in the corner waiting to put the finishing touches on this exhibition match!! DRAKE IS UP ON HIS FEET, BUT LOOT HIS EXPRESSION!! DRAKE IS SMILING AS HE IS INSTRUCTING MYLES TO BRING IT ON!! WHAT IS THIS??!!? DRAKE IS BEING BOLD AS MYLES SPRINTS TOWARDS HIM WITH A SMIRK!!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE GETS CLOCKED WITH A YAKUZA KICK TO THE JAW!!! IT DOESN’T DO THE JOB ENOUGH AS IT ONLY BRINGS THE REDEEMER DOWN ONTO ONE KNEE!! KING BRANDISHES A SMIRK ON HIS FEET AS MYLES NOW RUNS INTO THE ROPES FOR ANOTHER YAKUZA KICK!!! DRAKE GRABS HIS FOOT!!! MYLES IS BLOCKED AS DRAKE THROWS IT DOWN AND JUMPS FOR THE SUPERKICK!! MYLES DUCKS AND ROLLS UNDER THE ATTEMPT!! AND HE NAILS DRAKE WITH ANOTHER YAKUZA KICK!! IT STILL DOESN’T TAKE HIM DOWN AS MYLES GOES FOR ANOTHER YAKUZA KICK!! AND DRAKE GETS TURNED INSIDE OUT BY IT!! YAKUZA KICK FOLDS THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION LIKE AN ACCORDION AS MYLES PULLS HIM BACK UP TO HIS FEET!! RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE!!

Persephone: DRAKE KING CONNECTS WITH A KNEE FIRST!!! AS MYLES PULLED HIM IN FOR THE KNEE, KING WAS THE ONE TO LIFT HIS KNEE UP FIRST!! WHAT A BRILLIANT COUNTER AS KING AIMS TO RUN THE ROPES!! BUT MYLES GRABS HIS HAND AND PULLS HIM IN FOR THE KNEE STRIKE!! THE KNEE STRIKE FINALLY CONNECTS AS KING REELS INTO THE CORNER OF THE RING!! THIS COULD BE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR MYLES TO GET THE VICTORY!! MYLES RUNS INTO THE CORNER AND OFF FOR THE SHOTGUN DROPKICK!!! THE KANGAROO KICK!!!

OVERHAUL!!!! OH MY GOD!! OVERHAUL!!! KING COUNTERS WITH THE SWINGING REVERSE STO!! OH MY GOD!! COVER!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
THR-

Rich Russillo: IT ISN’T ENOUGH!! MYLES GETS HIS SHOULDER UP AT TWO!!

James Peters: YOU CAN SEE THE FRUSTRATION BUILDING IN DRAKE KING WHO COULDA FOR SURE THOUGHT HE HAD THE MATCH WON RIGHT THERE! But Drake realizes he has to keep the pressure on Myles who gets brought back to his feet here. It looks like Drake gonna be looking for another Overhaul that will undoubtedly seal the deal here. OVERHAUL…GETS COUNTERED INTO A ROLLUP BY MYLES!

ONNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY DRAKE KING! And both these competitors spring back up to their feet after that pinfall! SUPERKICK BY DRAKE! DRAKE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND INCOMING!! LARI- MYLES DUCKED UNDER THE LARIAT, AND HE GRABS THE WRIST OF DRAKE! RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE FINALLY CONNECTS!! DRAKE KING IS OUT, BUT MYLES SURPRISINGLY ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER HERE!

James Peters: No, I think Myles realizes that he’s gonna need to do a bit more to the Last Messiah. Myles grabs the arm of a recovering Drake, what is Myles gonna attempt here? WE AREN’T GONNA FIND OUT AS DRAKE GRABS MYLES BY THE WAISTBAND OF HIS SHORTS AND SENDS HIM OUT THROUGH THE ROPES! But Myles was able to catch himself on the apron! Drake realizes this and charges at Myles, WHO FIRES FIRST WITH A STRONG FOREARM SHOT!! DRAKE COMES BACK WITH AN ENZIGURI THAT STUNS MYLES TO HIS KNEE ON THE APRON! And now Drake balances himself on the middle rope. Myles could be in some serious trouble as he gets hooked up for a reverse Suplex of sorts. But how is Drake gonna pull whatever he has in mind off?

James Peters: You may not have to wait for an answer on that one, DRAKE DEADLIFT SUPLEXES MYLES ALL THE WAY INSIDE THE RING! EXCELLENT SHOWING OF STRENGTH ON DISPLAY BY KING, WHO ISNT DONE YET! DRAKE ROLLS THROUGH WITH THAT REVERSE SUPLEX STILL LOCKED IN OVER MYLES…INVERTED FALCON’S ARROW!! MYLES IS OUT AND DRAKE GRABS BOTH LEGS FOR A PIN!

ONNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: UNBELIEVABLE! MYLES KICKS OUT AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE! How many big hits are these guys gonna take from each other before this match is finished?! The resiliency on display by both men is insane here! Drake King can’t believe that Myles was able to kickout of that unique combo. But Drake seems to have an idea of what he has to do now. Myles is brought to all fours by the Messiah. If Drake is gonna hit what I think he’s gonna hit, this one is all over! DRAKES RUNS OFF THE ROPES FOR JUDGEMENT DAY! CURB STOMP CONNE- MYLES! HES TURNS IT INTO THE BLACK BLAYDE! POP UP KNEE STRIKE CRACKS DRAKE KING IN THE HEAD, AND HE STUMBLES BACK OUT OF THE RING!

James Peters: I don’t think that one was intentional at all by Drake King who just got his bell majorly rung by Myles who faces the tall task of getting Drake back into the ring now. That’s proving to be easier said the done as the limp body of the 225 pounder in Drake King isn’t budging at all and Myles needs to figure out something quick as the ref’s count is at four.

Referee: FOUR! FIVE! SIX!

Rich Russillo: I say it’d be smarter for Myles to take the count out loss, but he seems insistent on getting Drake back in that ring. He’s finally making progress in that area, and Myles may pull off getting Drake back in. BUT DRAKE! MYLES GETS PUSHED BACK FIRST INTO THE STEPS! DRAKE JUMPS BACK IN THE RING AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES TO COME CRASHING INTO MYLES WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!

James Peters: BUT THE STRENGTH IS MYLES IS ON FULL DISPLAY AND HE CATCHES DRAKE IN MID AIR IN A SUPLEX THAT GETS TURNED INTO RUNNING BRAINBUSTER ON THE OUTSIDE! Myles grabs Drake and throws him into the ring! Myles may be closing on victory, and like a shark who smells blood in the water, he’s swooping in on the groggy Drake King. KICK TO THE MIDSECTION…DE FACTO!!!! PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP!

Rich Russillo: YOU MAY HAVE SPOKE TOO SOON THERE, JAMES, DRAKE COUNTERS DE FACTO INTO A CRUCIFIX PIN! DRAKE TURNED MYLES’ MOMENTUM INTO HIS AND THE REFEREE SPRINGS INTO ACTION!

ONNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THH-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY MYLES!

Persephone: Do these guys have any finishers that actually work?

Rich Russillo: Speaking of work, I think me and you could work together as a cou-

Persephone: Back to the action in ring.

James Peters: First time I’ve ever seen you direct attention back to the match.

Rich Russillo: :mjcry:

James Peters: Drake King switches to a new plan of attack over the hurt Myles! Myles gets put through the legs of Drake King and he hoists him up. BUCKLE BOMB! THAT MOVE CAN END CAREERS ESPECIALLY WHEN DONE BY SOMEONE LIKE DRAKE KING! BUT MYLES SHRUGS OFF THE BUCKLE BOMB AND COMES OUT IMMEDIATELY WITH A JUMPING KNEE!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING GETS BROUGHT UP FOR A MICHINOKU DRIVER, BUT HE SLIPS OUT THE BACK OF IT! DRAKE TWISTS MYLES AROUND AND USES THE ROPES FOR ASSISTANCE TO SPIKE MYLES DOWN WITH A TORNADO DDT!

James Peters: DRAKE KING SPRINGS TO THE TOP ROPE! Could be seeing his signature frog splash? MAYBE NOT! MYLES IS STILL KICKING AND PUNCHING TO THE VERY END AND FOLLOWS DRAKE UP TO THE TOP ROPE! MYLES REIGNS BLOW AFTER BLOW AFTER BLOW ONTO DRAKE! MYLES HOOKS KING UP FOR A SUPERPLEX!!

Rich Russillo: MYLES GETS PUSHED OFF BY DRAKE WHO STILL HAS THE WHEREWITHAL IN HIM AND MYLES HITS FACE FIRST ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE BEFORE GOING DOWN BACK FIRST ONTO THE MAT! DRAKE KING IS FEELING FROGGY AND COMES DOWN ON MYLES HARD WITH A FROG SPLASH! DRAKE HOOKS THE LEG TO SCORE A COVER HERE!

ONNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHRRRRREE-

James Peters: MYLES GETS THE SHOULDER UP! On some nights, some people are just unbeatable, that statement could be ringing true for Myles here who just refuses to stay down. Drake King is just toying with Myles now who’s he’s trying to get back to his feet but just keeps getting kicked back down. DRAKE KING REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES FOR- POP UP POWERBOMB! MYLES PLANTED DRAKE WITH THE POWERBOMB, AND DEADLIFTS HIM BACK UP FOR A SPINNING SITOUT POWERBOMB!!! Myles doesn’t even go for a cover, he just pushed off Drake!

Rich Russillo: Myles is posted up into the corner across from Drake who’s slowly getting back to his feet. MYLES RUN AT DRAKE WHO THIS TIME DOESNT HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THE KANGAROO DROPKICK THAT SENDS DRAKE BACK INTO THE CORNER HARD! Drake out of instinct just rolls to the apron, Myles is gonna be forced to follow him if he wants this match to end.

James Peters: Drake gets brought up by Myles who’s ducking his head through the middle rope to grab Drake. BUT DRAKE BREAKS FREE FROM MYLES CLUTCHES AND ATTEMPTS JUDGEMENT DAY, ONLY FOR MYLES TO DUCK HIS HEAD BACK INTO THE RING! MYLES USES THE MIDDLE FOR A STEP UP KNEE STRIKE ON DRAKE, WHO DODGES AND PULLS MYLES OUTSIDE TO THE APRON!

Rich Russillo: THESE TWO MEN NOW BATTLING BACK AND FORTH WITH PUNCHES IN BUNCHES! MYLES HITS DRAKE HARD WITH A BICYCLE KICK! DRAKE RESPONDS BACK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN! MYLES WITH A STRONG ENZIGURI WHILE HANGING ON TO THE TOP ROPE! DRAKE KING GETS SET UP…BRAINBUSTER!! …NO! DRAKE PUTS HIS WEIGHT DOWN BEFORE MYLES COULD GET HIM UP ALL THE WAY AND SENDS MYLES BACK-FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST WITH A SHOVE!

James Peters: DRAKE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING, MYLES GOES IN AFTER HIM…JUDGEMENT DAY!!! CURB STOMP CONNECTS WHILE MYLES WAS ATTEMPTING TO GET BACK INTO THE RING AND DRAKE HOOKS THE INSIDE LEG OF MYLES FOR THE PIN!

ONNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Triumph” by Tenth Dimension plays throughout the arena as Drake gets his hand raised in victory while the virtual audience watching at home showers the man who they refuse to accept as their messiah in boos. The boos become even more prevalent when the fans realize that Myles had his foot under the ropes during that pin and got cheated.)

Bella Braxton: HERES YOUR WINNER…DRAKE KING!!

James Peters: Call it controversial due to the finish, but Drake King opens up his new year with a big win over the National Elite Champion, Myles. Certainly has to be a tough loss for Myles.

Persephone: All he had to do was kickout and he wouldn’t have had this problem.

James Peters: :wow:

Rich Russillo: You have to think that this win certainly raises the stock once more for Drake King who came off a loss to Darcy May Morgan at Road to Redemption for her Cash in the Vault briefcase, if you wanna even call that a loss. Drake King keeps picking up wins like this, and it won’t the Cash in the Vault he’ll be worrying about, it’ll be the EAW World Championship or Myles’ National Elite Title.

(The camera pans to show Drake heading up the ramp in victory while Myles recovers from that grueling match he just went through on the outside as we fade to black.)

(Commercial promoting EAW 2k21. Cyberpunk 2077 may have flopped, but this game didn’t!!)

(‘Blixky Gang Freestyle’ by 22Gz begins to play throughout the World 1 Theatre, and this causes a huge mixed reaction from the crowd. Soon, the reaction gets even louder as Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones make their way out to the stage. Both men have microphones in their hands and Chris noticeably has a smirk on his face. The two men make their way into the ring, and as the crowd begins to quiet down the two men begin to speak.)

Malcolm Jones: Just a few days ago on Dynasty Chris and I showed up and sat at ringside.. And if we’re being honest we wasted our fucking time. No seriously, were we supposed to be impressed by that? If I knew that’s what I was getting myself into I never would’ve wasted my time going to Dynasty, because that didn’t do shit for me and that was supposed to be one of the Champions we had to watch wrestle. So Harper beat Mary S. Atlas. No fucking shit. What result was everyone expecting? The match was literally only ever made to put Harper over, of fucking course she won. You telling me that’s what I had to go to Dynasty for? To watch Harper Lee beat some random newcomer in their debut match? I don’t know what reaction we’re supposed to be giving here because the Realm clearly aren’t gonna be defending their titles against any rookies. Harper can get her little win. What matters is the Unified Tag Team Championship match and that’s really not gonna be close. Not in the slightest.

Chris Elite: Wait wait wait, I think you’re forgetting something. The bitch barely even won that match. All that shit she talked and she was out there struggling. And she’s the Champion here? We went and ran through tag team after tag team, and THEY’RE the bitches standing in our way from the titles? You gotta be fucking joking. The two oldheads in the first round, the House of Eaters, the Jaded Bitches and their men. We ran through former World Champions like it was nothing, shit I pinned Mr. DEDEDE and the Visual Prophet in the same weekend and THIS is our competition? Bitches might as well just hand us the titles now. This ain’t finna be like any of our last runs as a tag team. We didn’t make it past that whole damn tournament for nothing, and if half of their team is struggling to whoever Mary Atlas is and the other half is losing to KID OHIO then why the fuck were they even Champions in the first place?

Malcolm Jones: And shit, Ryan Wilson fucking sucks at being general manager but even he doesn’t give a shit about that bland bitch Sierra. How the fuck are you gonna let yourself get traded for a literal sack of shit in Kensingten Calhoun-Astor? One half of the Unified Tag Team Champions is so irrelevant and useless that some Trump supporting jobber is valued over her meanwhile the other half is out here struggling against debuting Elitists. It’s honestly pretty fucking embarrassing that they managed to stay Champions this long but yeah this little fairy tale run is coming to an end at King of Elite. I don’t give a fuck what they did to the Grand Athletes, Chained Fury, or whatever teams they beat that aren’t even around anymore. There’s a whole lot of differences between the Blicky Boyz and the Realm, and if it wasn’t obvious just by looking at us we’re on a way different level from those two.

Chris Elite: Their power of friendship or whatever stupid shit they be on ain’t finna be a problem for us. We been doing our thing against teams way better than those two. They need to just accept what’s coming ‘cause ain’t shit they can do about it. At King of Elite the Blicky Boyz are winning the Unified Tag Team Championships, and we’re gonna be the Champions this place needed for a VERY long time.

(As Chris finishes speaking the virtual crowd begins to boo, but the booing stops as ‘In Over My Head’ by grandson begins to play. The virtual crowd cheers as Sierra Bradford and Harper Lee make their way to the stage with the Unified Tag Team Championships on their shoulders and microphones in their hands, and they make their way to the ring as they begin to speak, leaving the Blicky Boyz unamused seeing their interruption.)

Harper Lee: I’m sorry, I just find it funny hearing Chris talk about me “barely” beating a newcomer. Didn’t you spend like the majority of 2020 losing to random rookies?

Chris Elite: Bitch there ain’t a single person I lost to last year that couldn’t beat your ass, but that’s besides the point because they didn’t have what you have. We went through the whole Grand Prix for those titles and you’re not gonna get a lazy Chris Elite or nothing like that at King of Elite.

Sierra Bradford: Sounds like what you’ve said every other time, but alright. I’m sure this is gonna be the fight of our careers. We’ve accepted that a very long time ago, but we’ve made it this far as Champions for a reason. If we were really undeserving Champions and jokes and all that other stuff, we wouldn’t be here right now. It’d serve you two well to take us seriously, otherwise that whole Grand Prix tournament you ran through would all be for nothing. I thought you would’ve learned after your last tag team run Chris, but I guess that’s not the case. What a shame.

Harper Lee: Honestly I’m looking forward to seeing the looks on your faces after King of Elite. Imagine beating some of the best tag teams in the world in probably the most packed Grand Prix tournament ever just to drop the ball where it matters most.

Malcolm Jones: Damn, well it’s a good thing that’s not gonna happen isn’t it?

Chris Elite: Y’all bitches should be the last ones talking about dropping the ball. Weren’t y’all spending your whole careers losing title match after title match? Now you beat the fucking Grand Athletes and you think you’re the shit. Can’t stand you fucking morons. Maybe at King of Elite instead of just taking your titles we’ll go ahead and send you two wherever the fuck Sarah went. You two been obsessed with her for however long now. ‘Bout time you joined her and stopped holding those titles hostage.

(The crowd boos after hearing the Blicky Boyz’ words, and both Harper and Sierra just look at one another, shrugging their shoulders before turning their attention back to the Blicky Boyz.)

James Peters: THE REALM CHARGES AT THE BLICKY BOYZ!! THE REALM IS ATTACKING THE BLICKY BOYZ, AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A BRAWL AT OUR HANDS AS HARPER IS ATTACKING CHRIS AND SIERRA IS ATTACKING MALCOLM! THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS HAVE THE UPPER HAND OVER THEIR CHALLENGERS, BUT WAIT A SECOND! THAT DOESN’T LAST TOO LONG AS THE BLICKY BOYZ PUSH THE REALM TOWARDS THE ROPES!

Rich Russillo: THE BLICKY BOYZ GO FOR SIMULTANEOUS CLOTHESLINES, BUT BOTH HARPER AND SIERRA DUCK THEM BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! DOUBLE DROPKICK BY THE REALM, SENDING CHRIS ELITE AND MALCOLM JONES ROLLING OUT OF THE RING! IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THEY’RE FINISHED THERE THOUGH, THEY’RE ALREADY BACK RUNNING THE ROPES AS MALCOLM AND CHRIS GET BACK UP!!

James Peters: SUICIDE DIVE BY BOTH HARPER AND SIERRA!! HARPER AND SIERRA JUST CAUGHT THE BLICKY BOYZ WITH HUGE SUICIDE DIVES AND NOW THEY’VE GOT THE UPPER HAND OVER THE GRAND PRIX WINNERS, LEFTS AND RIGHTS BEING THROWN ALL AROUND THE RING!

Persephone: 🤦‍♀️ Is this REALLY the tag title match for King of Elite? This has to be some type of joke.

(The brawl between the Realm and the Blicky Boyz continues, causing Malcolm and Chris to find themselves at the ramp as they finally get the Realm off of them.)

Harper Lee: (off-mic) Where’s all the laughing now!?

Sierra Bradford: (off-mic) It’s not so funny anymore is it!?

(Neither Malcolm nor Chris look happy as they stand halfway up the ramp, and sure enough they aren’t laughing this time around.)

Chris Elite: Y’all really don’t know what you’re getting yourselves into. I can’t wait until King of Elite, it’s over for you two bitches.

Malcolm Jones: Hope you enjoyed your little title reign, ‘cause y’all aren’t making it past us with those titles.

(‘Blixky Gang Freestyle’ plays once again, and the Blicky Boyz make their way backstage. This leaves Harper and Sierra down at the bottom of the ramp, and they both look at each other with the same lack of amusement on their faces as Voltage begins to fade away from ringside.)

(Commercial spreading awareness for Autocorrect-19, a new virus being spread that’s already affected Elitists such as Chris Elite, Andre Walker and Xander Payne.)

(Voltage returns from commercial break with Bella Braxton standing in the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: ONE FALL!

(‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence hits the speakers, to a chorus of boos. Four spotlights appear on stage, as a hooded Shane Gates begins to walk through them. One by one they change colors to red, before disappearing. The last one remains however, as Shane takes down his hood, being followed by Lizzie The Doll.)

Rich Russillo: Shane Gates. Boy is he a bit weird, right?

James Peters: :comeagain: You used to be his number 1 fan.

Rich Russillo: Yeah… nah. Ever since that doll started coming out with him it’s been rather off putting. It just stands there… staring. Surely it’s fake right?

James Peters: :wow: Whatever. Here comes Shane Gates! After losing at Road To Redemption in the Extreme Enigma Memorial Battle Royal, he comes out here and looks to defeat the EAW World Champion himself, and in turn, possibly earn a future shot.

Persephone: Rex is here???

James Peters: No… I said EAW World Champion.

Persephone: Yeah, Rexy. Because we all know SOSA stole that title from him! Such a shame he was never apprehended.

James Peters: :mjpls:

Persephone: What?

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… From Huntington Beach, California. Weighing in at 213 pounds… THE NATURAL BORN KILLER… SHAAAAAAAAAAANE GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATES!

(Shane Gates climbs onto the apron, as Lizzie stands at ringside, watching him. Staring at his every move. Shane does the same, staring, down the hardcam, before his theme fades out, and ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef replaces it. SOSA Henderson walks out wearing his EAW World Championship around his waist, as the camera cuts to one of the virtual fans holding a sign saying ‘These bitches love SOSA!’)

Rich Russillo: Now we’re talking! The EAW World Champion himself, someone who was SUCCESSFUL at Road To Redemption, and will continue to be successful until he dies, which is hopefully never. One of the greatest to do it inside the ring, and one of the most entertaining out of it!

Persephone: NOT the EAW World Champion! My Rexy is!

James Peters: He… literally won the title. Nevermind. SOSA! The EAW World Champion, and someone who had one of the best years ever in 2020. He managed to rise up to the occasion, dethrone Rex McAllister, and he even retained inside of an Extreme Elimination Chamber match. That’s impressive! But we’ll see how well he does when he steps inside of the ring against Shane Gates, in a match bound for glory.

Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent, hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Weighing in at 191 pounds… THE EAW WOOOOOOOOOOORLD CHAMPION! SOSA HEEEEENDERSOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!

(SOSA Henderson walks up the steps, and enters the ring, before raising his championship, staring down the hardcam. His theme fades out as he removes his glasses, and hands the title to the referee.)

Persephone: QUICK! REF! RETURN THE TITLE TO REX- and he’s not listening to me. Fire this man!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: And here we see The CHAMP face off against some lunatic who got brain damage after being buried alive :francis:. I can totally see this opportunity being wasted- Did that doll just look at me? That has to be remote controlled right? I mean I refuse to believe that is actually haunted. It’s just not possible. Don’t care if it’s been here for months, that’s easy to fake. I mean, even I could do it… right? Guys… TELL ME I’M RIGHT! I’M RIGHT, RIGHT? RIGHT! RIGHT? Right. I’m right. I knew I was right. Could never be left.

Persephone: Chill out, damn.

James Peters: :wow:. Anyway, this match begins, as Shane Gates, and SOSA Henderson square off in the center of the ring! Shane stares down SOSA, who has a grin plastered across his face, clearly not scared of Shane, nor his doll. Very much like back when he faced Kasey Kaos, showing absolutely no fear- OH! HE JUST SLAPPED SHANE ACROSS THE FACE! I MEAN, EVEN IF YOU SHOW NO FEAR AGAINST THIS MAN, THAT ISN’T A SMART IDEA! THAT’S BEYOND A DEATH WISH!

Rich Russillo: He’s SOSA Henderson, he’ll be fin-

James Peters: WAIT! SHANE GATES LIFTS SOSA UP… SPINEBUSTER!! HE STANDS BACK UP, BEFORE DELIVERING A SUPERKICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! ‘KILLSHOT’ LANDS ALREADY! IT COULD BE OVER, AS SHANE GATES KNEELS DOWN FOR A COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: THANK GOD!

James Peters: HE ALMOST JUST PUT SOSA HENDERSON AWAY WIT THAT MOVE RIGHT THERE, RIGHT OFF THE BAT! SHANE GATES IS CLEARLY NOT TOO HAPPY ABOUT LOSING THE BATTLE ROYAL AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION, AND NOW HE HAS ALL THE CHANCE IN THE WORLD TO BEAT THE WORLD CHAMPION, AND MAYBE EVEN GET A SHOT BECAUSE OF THAT!

Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES LIFTS SOSA HENDERSON UP FROM THE GROUND, WITH A LOCK OF HIS HAIR IN HIS HANDS! OH GOD, SHANE RIPS IT STRAIGHT OUT OF HIS HEAD, BEFORE THROWING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! SHANE THROWS THE HAIR STRAND TO LIZZIE, THAT CREEPY FUCKING DOLL NOW HAS A LOCK OF SOMEONE’S HAIR! THE FUCK SHE GONNA DO, MAKE POTIONS WITH IT!? CREATE A CLONE?! NO! BECAUSE SHE’S NOT REAL- SHE LOOKED AT ME AGAIN, IT FUCKING LOOKED AT ME AGAIN!

James Peters: SHANE GATES THEN SPRINTS OVER TO SOSA, BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE RUNNING BIG BOOT, TAKING HIS HEAD CLEAN OFF! IT’S SAFE TO SAY SOSA WASN’T FULLY PREPARED FOR THIS SIDE OF SHANE GATES, HOWEVER ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST! IF HE CAN FIND A WAY TO RETURN FIRE, HE CAN TOTALLY STOP SHANE’S DESTRUCTIVE PATH, AND TAKE HIM DOWN! BUT THE REAL QUESTION IS… is it possible right now?

Rich Russillo: Surely it must be! Despite Shane picking up control, and getting advantage of SOSA’s slap, Shane isn’t invincible, as we’ve seen countless times in the past! SOSA however? He’s been on FIRE! I’m sure the heat Shane is bringing right now will light a fire under SOSA, and he’ll burn like a star! Give it time, and he’ll be running this match!

James Peters: Give it time, perhaps. But right now is not that time! Shane Gates is manhandling SOSA Henderson, and I don’t think he’s going to stop, as he grabs the champion by his hair once more – this time not ripping any out – and pulling him to his feet! Shane hooks SOSA’s head, before lifting him straight into the air, and dropping him with a vertical lift brainbuster! He holds on though, before rolling to his feet… HE LIFTS SOSA UP AGAIN AND HITS ANOTHER BRAINBUSTER, THIS TIME QUICKER, YET STILL HOLDS ON! HE ROLLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET, BEFORE PULLING SOSA UP! FACEBREAKER DDT! AND YET AGAIN, HE STILL HOLDS ON! SOSA IS BEING BRUTALIZED RIGHT NOW! SHANE GATES RISES BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND LIFTS SOSA UP IN A VERTICAL SUPLEX POSITION, BEFORE THROWING HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BACK FIRST! HOLY SHIT! SOSA LANDS ON HIS HEAD, HIS HEAD BOUNCES AGAINST THE MAT! WRESTLING ISN’T SAFE FOR ANYONE, BUT I DON’T THINK THAT’S SAFE WHATSOEVER! SOMEBODY NEEDS TO CHECK ON SOSA, THERE’S NO WAY HE’S NOT CONCUSSED AFTER THAT LANDING!

Rich Russillo: You see what I mean? Insane! What normal man decides to throw another man into turnbuckles, knowing he’ll land on his head? Even if it’s a wrestling match? The answer is no normal man would do that! And this isn’t a compliment! I’m not saying Shane Gates is better than the average man, no, he’s worse! And somehow with this insanity he always finds a way to lose, every single week. He only exists to make people’s jobs harder! Quite literally too! I would imagine SOSA will walk out here tonight, and all night be unable to sleep due to having a massive headache. You know how much of an inconvenience that is to the champ? Hopefully nowhere above 6/10!

Persephone: …What? Are you intentionally being annoying right now, or do you actually believe what’s coming out of your mouth?

Rich Russillo: What do you think ❗❓

James Peters: Shane Gates walks over to SOSA, and tries to pick him up, but the referee is forced to push him back! He’s looking to check on SOSA after that nasty landing on the back of his head. I’ve seen this happen before, a wrestler landing on the back of their head, and when I saw that, he never wrestled again. This is… This isn’t how I expected this match to go. And quite honestly, I’m worried for SOSA’s health after this.

Rich Russillo: SOSA is a fighter! I’m sure he’ll be able to get through it. Right?

Referee: (off-mic) No! That’s it! I’m calling it off!

James Peters: The referee’s going to ring the bell! SOSA is going to lose VIA being unable to compete-

SOSA Henderson: (off-mic) Don’t you fucking dare!

James Peters: BUT SOSA HENDERSON GRABS THE REFEREE’S SHIRT, AND PULLS HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! SOSA JUST STOPPED THE REFEREE FROM CALLING IT OFF, AND NOW HE’S CLIMBING UP THE ROPES TO CONTINUE THE MATCH! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HOW IS HE EVEN STANDING RIGHT NOW-

Rich Russillo: BUT SHANE GATES RUNS FORWARD WITH ANOTHER BIG BOOT- SOSA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! SHANE GATES’ LEG FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE, AND HE STRUGGLES TO PULL IT BACK! BUT SOSA ASSISTS HIM, AS HE GRABS THE TIGHTS, AND PULLS HIM BACK STRAIGHT INTO A LUMBAR CHECK! I TOLD YOU, SOSA WAS ABLE TO GET THROUGH IT! AND NOW HE JUST SNAPPED SHANE GATES IN HALF! SOSA COVERS!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOO-

James Peters: HOW DID SHANE GATES KICK OUT ALREADY!?!?! SHANE GATES KICKED OUT AT ONE! SOSA DRILLED HIS KNEES STRAIGHT INTO SHANE GATES’ BACK, AND HE’S RUBBING IT OFF AS IF IT’S NOTHING! BUT SOSA ISN’T DONE! SHANE GATES GETS UP, BUT SOSA IS UP BEHIND HIM… SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, MAKING SHANE GATES STUMBLE FORWARD AND BOUNCE OFF THE ROPES… REVERSE RANA! SOSA HENDERSON DRIVES SHANE GATES INTO THE MAT WITH A REVERSE RANA! SHANE ISN’T STAYING DOWN THOUGH! HE’S SLOWLY GETTING TO HIS KNEES- UNTIL HE’S MET WITH A HUGE ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! SOSA COVERS SHANE ONCE MORE!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

T-

Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES KICKS OUT AGAIN! WHY WON’T HE JUST STAY DOWN? IT’S PROBABLY FOR THE BEST! SOSA IS LOOKING TO EITHER BREAK THIS MAN’S BACK, OR CRACK OPEN HIS SKULL, MAYBE BOTH! I DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE, THAT’S GOING TO PUT YOU ON THE SHELF! SHANE GATES IS INSANE, I REFUSE TO BELIEVE ANYTHING ELSE! HE’S NOT RIGHT IN THE HEAD, THE COGS AREN’T TURNING CORRECTLY, SOMETHING IS WRONG UP THERE, HE NEEDS THERAPY, NOT PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING! AN ASYLUM OR SOMETHING!

James Peters: SOSA Henderson gets back up again, as he stares at Shane Gates, who’s beginning to move! SOSA looks to end this right here, grabbing Shane’s hair, and pulls him to his knees… BEFORE HITTING HIM WITH ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE KICK STRAIGHT TO THE HEAD! THE SOUND OF HIS FOOT MEETING SHANE’S HEAD RINGING OUT THROUGH THE ARENA IS ALMOST DISGUSTING, THE FLESH BEING SLAPPED BY A FOOT ONLY LETS ME KNOW HOW MUCH THAT MUST BE HURTING SHANE! SOSA DOESN’T LOOK TO STOP THERE THOUGH, HE GRABS SHANE AND PULLS HIM UP ANOTHER TIME! BEFORE DELIVERING ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD! SHANE SLUMPS OVER, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IT LOOKS AS IF SOSA HENDERSON HAS KNOCKED HIM OUT COMPLETELY! ALL HE NEEDS TO DO NOW IS PUT HIM AWAY WITH ONE BIG MOVE, AND HE HAS IT WON! DESPITE BEING BADLY BEATEN UP AT THE VERY START OF THE MATCH, DESPITE BEING DROPPED ON HIS HEAD, SOSA HENDERSON LOOKS TO HAVE THIS IN THE BAG AS HE CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE, ALBEIT SLOWLY, LOOKING DOWN AT SHANE GATES BELOW THE TURNBUCKLES! SHANE IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT AFTER THREE ROUNDHOUSE KICKS TO THE HEAD! SOSA REACHES THE TOP…

Rich Russillo: ‘SOSA BOMB’!!!! SWANTON BOMB FROM THE TOP ROPE CRUSHES SHANE GATES! IT COULD BE OVER RIGHT HERE, SOSA HOOKS THE LEG!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THR-

Rich Russillo: BUT HE KICKS OUT, AGAIN! HOW IS SHANE GATES DOING THIS?? IS HE ON STEROIDS OR SOMETHING? HE HAS TO BE, OR SOME FORM OF DRUGS! IT’S BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE TO JUST TAKE THIS AMOUNT OF DAMAGE, SURELY!

Persephone: We see a murder almost every week and they get back up the next week.

Rich Russillo: :wow:

James Peters: SOSA Henderson gets back up to his feet, and stares down at Shane Gates, who’s only just moving to his knees. Shane really wants to send a message everyone, but mainly, a message to SOSA! He wants SOSA to know who he really has to worry about when it comes to his championship! However SOSA Henderson is managing to fight Shane off right now, damaged head and all! That takes strength, and I admire that strength!

Persephone: His championship that he stole from Rexy? It’s still a crime how it hasn’t been returned! But that’s okay, soon enough my Rexy will bring it home in absolutely no time, believe me!

James Peters: SOSA grabs Shane by the beard, before slapping him in the face again! And again! I don’t know if this is a wise decision, but whatever works for SOSA, I won’t doubt him. He goes to slap Shane again- BUT SHANE GRABS HIS WRIST AND PULLS HIM INTO THE SHORT-ARM LARIAT, THE FINAL PART OF HIS FINISHING MOVE- BUT SOSA DUCKS, BEFORE GOING BEHIND SHANE! RIPCORD LARIAT OF HIS OWN! NO! SHANE DUCKS! GERMAN SUPLEX! NO! SOSA BACKFLIPS OUT OF IT! RUNNING SHOOTING STAR- SHANE GETS THE KNEES UP! THEY’RE GOING BACK AND FORTH NOW, COUNTER AFTER COUNTER!

Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES GETS BACK UP, AND LIFTS SOSA UP FOR THE ‘ACES HIGH’ POWERBOMB COMBO, BUT SOSA SLITHERS OUT OF IT, AND KICKS SHANE STRAIGHT IN THE FACE WITH ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE KICK- NO! IT’S DUCKED THIS TIME AROUND! SHANE GRABS SOSA AROUND THE WAIST AND GOES TO DELIVER THE GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT SOSA STUMBLES FORWARD AND HOOKS HIS ARMS ON THE TOP ROPE, BREAKING THE PRESSURE, AND ALLOWING HIMSELF TO STAY ON HIS FEET!

James Peters: SOSA THEN BEGINS TO ELBOW SHANE IN THE JAW FROM IN FRONT OF HIM, OVER, AND OVER, LOOKING TO BREAK HIS GRIP, AND POSSIBLY TAKE CONTROL OF THE MATCH! SOSA THROWS ANOTHER ELBOW, BUT THIS ALLOWS SHANE TO PULL BACK AND CONNECT WITH THE GERMAN SUPLEX! HE’S ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE FINISH! HE LOCKS THE WRIST, AND BEGINS TO PULL HIMSELF AND SOSA TO THEIR FEET! AND WHEN HE DOES, HE SPINS HIM AROUND… ‘SUFFER AS ONE’ RIPCORD LARIAT–

Rich Russillo: ‘STOLE YO BITCH’!!!! THE CUTTER OUTTA NOWHERE CATCHES SHANE GATES OFF GUARD, DRILLING HIM INTO THE MAT FACT FIRST! IT’S OVER, THERE’S NO WAY SHANE IS GETTING BACK UP AFTER THAT! THE CHAMPION HAS IT WON, IT’S IN THE BAG! HE COVERS SHANE, HOOKING THE LEG!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… SOSA HEEEEEEEENDERSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!

(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits the speakers as SOSA Henderson rolls off of Shane Gates. He begins to stand up, as the referee hands him his EAW World Championship)

Rich Russillo: What did I say? He always finds a way to prevail! That’s a champions instinct right there. Dropped on his head from a great distance, still comes out the winner, still able to walk!

James Peters: SOSA did win, yes. But Shane Gates really stood out here! SOSA tried to prove he wasn’t scared of Shane, but ended up getting manhandled like we’ve never seen before. Shane came up short, but he did better than anyone could’ve thought.

Rich Russillo: Is that the doll telling you to say that? The only thing that matters is the outcom- Oh god she’s staring at me again.

(As SOSA Henderson poses on the top rope with his championship, Voltage fades away from ringside.)

(The camera fades backstage, where Minerva is seen preparing for her upcoming match against Rex McAllister. Myles is there next to her with the National Elite Championship to keep her company, and Minerva looks very focused as she continues getting ready. The two are in the middle of a conversation it looks like, and they continue talking as Minerva’s almost finished getting ready.)

Myles: Are you sure you’re ready for this, Minerva? I know how important this is for you and just how much you want to be the first woman to ever win King of Elite. I’ve had my own experiences with Rex McAllister, just want to make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into.

Minerva: Of course. I said 2021 was going to be my year, and that is a promise I intend to keep. Becoming the first ever women’s King of Elite winner would be a fantastic way of doing so, don’t you think?

(Myles simply nods his head. His feelings on accolades like that are well known already, but it’s clear just how much this means to Minerva and he obviously wants her to get what she wants.)

Myles: I know you and Rex have some history of your own as well. After everything you did to him and Raven Roberts I’m sure Rex isn’t taking this match lightly.

Minerva: And neither am I. I’m ready for this match, Myles. The King of Elite crown will be mine.

(Myles stays silent as he believes Minerva, but he’s able to sense the nerves coming from her knowing that this is one of her biggest opportunities yet, if not her biggest. Myles puts his hands on her shoulders and the two look at each other eye to eye as Myles begins to speak.)

Myles: You can beat Rex. You’ll win this entire tournament, Minerva. I believe in you.

(Minerva smiles, and she goes to respond but before she could both her and Myles notice the man walking up to them. It’s turn out to be Rex McAllister himself, and both Myles and Minerva would turn their attention to him as he walks up to the couple.)

Rex McAllister: Minerva, your dedication is admirable and so is your confidence, but it’s not going to get you far. Your time in the King of Elite tournament is a one and done, so don’t get your hopes up of moving on to the next round.

(Rex then turns his attention to Myles, someone who Rex has his fair share of history with. Rex looks at his National Elite Championship before looking back at Myles. The two men go face to face, and Myles doesn’t look very amused as Rex begins to speak.)

Rex McAllister: It’s nice to see you bounce back from Bloodsport, Myles. Many men have proven that they’re not capable of doing the same over the years, and it’s nice to see that you haven’t met the same fate. But, have you really improved since Bloodsport is my question. Have you learned from your loss against me, or are you just on one big streak of luck?

Myles: I think I’ve let my actions do all the talking these past few months. If you want to know whether or not I’ve improved.. Try asking Xander Payne. Try asking Sienna Jade. Hell, try asking Jesse Barlow. Oh wait, you can’t because I sent him packing. Don’t worry about me Rex. You have a match up next to worry about, don’t you?

(Rex looks between both Myles and Minerva, before nodding his head at Myles and slowly beginning to leave the area. Before he’s gone however, he turns his attention towards Minerva one more time.)

Rex McAllister: Good luck tonight Minerva. You’re going to need it.

(With that being said, Rex finally leaves the area, leaving Myles and Minerva with that final message. Minerva stays quiet for a bit, but Myles quickly looks back at her.)

Myles: Don’t listen to him. You have this match in the bag no matter what.

(Minerva nods her head in agreement, and as she continues to prepare for her upcoming match Voltage fades back to ringside for the final time in the night. Bella Braxton stands in the center of the ring with her microphone as always, and she soon begins to speak.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is our main event of the evening… And it is a King of Elite tournament round one match scheduled for ONE FALL!!!

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

(‘Champion’ by Barnes Courtney hits, and soon after Rex McAllister walks out to the stage. Cheering is heard all throughout the virtual audience, and Rex looks around the World 1 Theatre before finally walking down the ramp. He looks confident and prepared for the match despite the conversation that occurred not too long ago, and as he makes his way to the ring Bella Braxton begins to speak.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… From Sea Isle, New Jersey…. Weighing in at 238 pounds….. RRREEEEEEEEXXXXXXXX MMCCCAAALLLLIIISSSSTTTEEEERRRRR!!!!!

James Peters: Rex McAllister failed to win the EAW Championship in his return match back at Road to Redemption, but we said it wouldn’t be long before he found himself back in the title scene. It looks like we were right about that one, as right now Rex is getting ready for his first round match in the King of Elite tournament.

Rich Russillo: It’s not going to be an easy match. Rex McAllister is facing Minerva tonight, and I’ll admit this had to have been a long time coming. Both Elitists have their own reasons for why they want to win this match, and I can only imagine what’s gonna happen tonight.

Persephone: Yeah! REXY IS GONNA SQUASH MINERVA, RUN THROUGH THE ENTIRE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT, AND TAKE BACK HIS EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! :blessed:

Rich Russillo: Sure.. Let’s go with that.

(‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie hits, and all of the cheering from the audience disappears and is replaced with boos. As the booing continues Minerva makes her way out to the stage, and both her and Rex McAllister keep eye contact as she makes her way to the ring. It’s clear that these two don’t like each other and they don’t have the most kind history, and if there’s anything Minerva needs right now it’s a victory over this man, something Minerva herself clearly understands.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent… Residing in the Florida Everglades… Weighing in at 122 pounds…. MIIIIIINNNNEEEERRRVVVAAAAA!!!!

James Peters: At Road to Redemption Minerva was actually on the winning side of things as she faced Sienna Jade and came out victorious. Tonight she has a huge opportunity in front of her as she can become the first ever women’s King of Elite winner.. But like you said Rich. This match won’t be easy.

Rich Russillo: At one point Minerva spent weeks tormenting Rex’s own wife Raven Roberts. She even said at one stage that she hoped to be the one to end Rex’s EAW Championship reign. Are her words and actions gonna come back to bite her, or is she gonna actually make the most of this?

Persephone: Is that a serious question? Did you forget she’s facing REX!? Please someone just ring the bell.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And here we go! King of Elite round one match for the main event of Voltage! Rex McAllister versus Minerva! This is going to be great, after all not only are there high stakes but these two have history with each other and that history is not too pretty. After everything Minerva did to Rex’s own wife Raven Roberts, I can only imagine the hatred these two really have for each other. Both Elitists are circling the ring and I believe they’re waiting to see who’ll make the first move- BUT BOTH OF THEM ENGAGE IN A LOCK UP!

Rich Russillo: KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY MINERVA! Minerva with a huge kick to the midsection, AND NOW SHE SENDS REX SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! Minerva just sent Rex crashing into the ring post and now Rex has fallen down into a seated position in the corner, ALLOWING MINERVA TO JUST STOMP AWAY AT THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION! This has been a brutal display by Minerva early on in the match, and there’s still a lot of time to change that but things are definitely not looking good for Rex! Minerva now dragging Rex back up to his feet, AND SHE GETS HIM IN A FRONT FACELOCK! ATLAS FALLS!!

Persephone: NO YOU IDIOT, IT DIDN’T CONNECT!! REX PULLED HIMSELF BACK DOWN TO HIS FEET, AND HE JUST RAMMED MINERVA INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! Rexy dragging Minerva away from the turnbuckles, AND HE SENDS HER ACROSS THE RING WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! This is what I’ve been waiting for! Rexy is gonna beat this edgy, emo.. Vampire? Whatever Minerva is supposed to be, AND HE’S GONNA WIN THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT! I’m so ready for Rexy to become Champion again!

James Peters: Minerva is back up to her feet and now both competitors charge towards each other, AND REX WENT FOR A LARIAT BUT MINERVA DUCKED IT- JUST FOR REX TO TURN AROUND AND PULL IN MINERVA FOR A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE! REX NOW RUNNING THE ROPES WHILE MINERVA GETS BACK UP, AND NOW REX TAKES HER DOWN WITH A FOREARM SMASH! REX RUNNING THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME AS MINERVA SLOWLY GETS BACK UP, AND REX CONNECTS WITH A HUGE DROPKICK, CAUSING MINERVA TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING! Rex is doing amazing right now, what a great line of offense!

Rich Russillo: Rex now rolls out of the ring in pursuit of Minerva- BUT THAT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN THE BEST CHOICE AS MINERVA CATCHES REX WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! Rex was on a roll but just like that Minerva’s cut it short! Minerva now grabbing Rex, AND SHE RAMS HIM RIGHT INTO THE RING APRON! She grabs Rex again, AND THIS TIME SHE THROWS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE! Rex isn’t looking great right now, and it’s crazy just how quickly Minerva was able to take back control of this match! Minerva’s pulling Rex back up while approaching the ring post, AND SHE SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST INTO IT!

Persephone: Nooo no no no, this was NOT supposed to happen! Minerva shouldn’t be getting the upper hand right now! Actually, you know what? I’m sure Rexy is just allowing Minerva to get all this offense in! He’s just letting her do what she can now and then after this he’s gonna squash her and end the match immediately! Sounds great! Minerva’s rolled Rexy back into the ring, and as soon as she enters the ring she attempts to hit Rexy with a running knee but Rex manages to get out of the way!

James Peters: Rex now grabbing Minerva from behind after she missed that knee strike, AND HE ATTEMPTS TO HIT A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT MINERVA HITS HIM WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW! MINERVA NOW BOUNCING OFF OF THE ROPES, AND SHE TAKES REX DOWN WITH A THESZ PRESS BEFORE BEGINNING TO PUNCH AWAY AT HIM! Rex quickly manages to push Minerva off of him before both Elitists get to their feet- AND REX CATCHES MINERVA WITH A HUGE DROPKICK! That dropkick just brought Rex right back into this match as Minerva is down!

Rich Russillo: Minerva trying to get back up to her feet, BUT REX QUICKLY PUTS HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK BEFORE LIFTING HER UP! SNAP SUPLEX BY REX, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S NOT FINISHED THERE AS HE ROLLS BACK UP WHILE STILL HOLDING MINERVA! A SECOND SNAP SUPLEX BY REX, AND ONCE AGAIN HE ROLLS BACK UP TO HIS FEET WHILE HOLDING MINERVA! Rex finally lets go of her, BUT NOT FOR LONG AS HE SWITCHES TO A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! REX WITH THREE SUPLEXES IN A ROW TO MINERVA AND NOW HE LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE AS HE GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!

ONE!
TW-

Persephone: Alright whatever, Minerva kicked out but you guys see what I mean right?? No way Minerva wins this match, not when Rexy can do stuff like that! If I were Minerva I’d just give up while I still could, because this match can get really ugly. Uglier than Minerva already is. Anyways Minerva is starting to get back to her feet, AND REX HITS HER ACROSS THE CHEST WITH A HUGE CHOP, BEFORE SENDING HER TOWARDS THE CORNER AND CHARGING IN! RUNNING CLOTHESLINE BY REXY, BUT NOW HE GRABS MINERVA AND PULLS HER OUT THE CORNER WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG-

James Peters: NO! THE BULLDOG DOESN’T CONNECT!! MINERVA AVOIDS THE BULLDOG AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT AND INSTEAD PUSHES REX RIGHT ONTO THE MAT! MINERVA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND BEFORE REX COULD GET BACK TO HIS FEET MINERVA HITS HIM WITH A RUNNING METEORA! Rex is on his knees doing his best to try and get back up anyway as this match hasn’t lasted too long just yet, BUT MINERVA DROPS HIM ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME WITH A SHINING WIZARD! Minerva now hooking the leg, looking for the cover on Rex McAllister!

ONE!
TWO!-

Rich Russillo: REX GETS THE SHOULDER UP! That was a great combination but it’s not gonna get the job on Rex McAllister, especially not this soon! Minerva now running the ropes once more, AND SHE GOES FOR A KNEE DROP ON REX’S FACE- BUT REX MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! MINERVA JUST CRASHED RIGHT ONTO HER KNEE, AND REX CAPITALIZES ON THE OPPORTUNITY PUT IN FRONT OF HIM AS HE GRABS THE SAME LEG AND PUTS MINERVA IN A SINGLE LEG BOSTON CRAB! What a move by Rex McAllister! This is why Rex is as accomplished as he is!

Persephone: YEP, THAT’S IT! It’s only a matter of time now! Minerva is gonna tap out and Rexy is gonna move on to the next round of King of Elite! There’s no way Minerva gets out of that, especially not after she jumped right onto her own knee like an idiot! Minerva is gonna tap out and just like that she’s gonna be eliminated from the tournament. I’m pretty sure she really wanted to be World Champ again too. Sucks to be her! Maybe if she was a better wrestler she wouldn’t be in this situation.

James Peters: I THINK YOU SPOKE TOO SOON PERSEPHONE! Minerva is doing her beat to climb towards the ropes, and she’s not too far away at this point! If Minerva can get just a bit closer to the ropes then she’ll be able to escape the submission! I can’t begin to imagine the pain she’s in, but somehow she’s fighting through it! WAIT, JUST AS MINERVA WAS ABOUT TO MAKE IT TOWARDS THE ROPES REX TEMPORARILY LETS GO OF THE HOLD AND DRAGS HER BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!

Persephone: HAHAHA YES!!! NOW SHE’LL DEFINITELY HAVE TO TAP OUT!

Rich Russillo: NO, MINERVA MANAGES TO TURN HERSELF ONTO HER BACK WHICH CAUSES REX TO LET GO OF THE HOLD! MINERVA NOW KICKING AWAY AT REX, AND JUST LIKE THAT SHE’S FINALLY FREE FROM THE HOLD! Minerva gets back to her feet and stumbles into the corner, AND REX TRIES TO CHARGE TOWARDS HER- BUT MINERVA CATCHES HIM WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! MINERVA NOW WAITING FOR REX TO TURN BACK AROUND TOWARDS HER- AND NOW SHE GOES FOR THE DEVIL’S TOUCH- JUST FOR REX TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! REX GRABS MINERVA, AND NOW THERE’S ANOTHER BELLY TO BELLY-

Persephone: WAIT WAIT WHAT!? NO!! THAT’S NOT FAIR, MINERVA JUST RAKED AT HIS EYES! The referee is yelling at her but the hell is that gonna do!? DON’T WARN HER, DISQUALIFY HER! UGH, whatever! Rexy will be fine! Minerva used the eye rake to take Rexy to the mat with multiple knees, and now she’s stomping away at him! I really don’t see how that’s fair but that’s just how Minerva is. She’s so trash at wrestling that she has to constantly cheat to have an advantage. Too bad she’s still not gonna win.

James Peters: UH, YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE BACK THOSE WORDS! HELL’S BELLS!!! MINERVA TOOK DOWN REX MCALLISTER AND MADE SURE HE WOULDN’T GET BACK UP, AND NOW SHE JUST HIT HIM WITH HELL’S BELLS! NOW THIS IS WHERE THINGS STOP LOOKING GOOD FOR REX MCALLISTER! HE NEEDS TO MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN RIGHT NOW IF HE WANTS TO WIN THIS MATCH, OTHERWISE HE’S GOING TO BE ELIMINATED FROM THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT RIGHT NOW! COVER BY MINERVA!

ONE!
TWO!!
THRE-

James Peters: KICK OUT!! REX MANAGES TO KICK OUT JUST BEFORE THREE! That was really close, I thought Minerva actually had it there!

Rich Russillo: It’s a good thing she didn’t. We wouldn’t have heard the end of it from Persephone if Minerva managed to win after that eye rake. Minerva has her foot on top of Rex’s jaw right now, just adding insult to injury. I’m sure Minerva has a lot more in her arsenal, but I’m sure even she’s wondering what she has to do to put Rex down for good! Minerva pulling Rex back up, before pulling him into an inverted facelock! I THINK I KNOW WHAT SHE’S SETTING UP FOR, AND THIS WILL DEFINITELY END THE MATCH! PARADISE LOST!!

James Peters: NO!! REX TURNS AROUND AND GETS MINERVA IN THE INVERTED FACELOCK BEFORE PUSHING HER AWAY! MINERVA TURNS BACK TOWARDS REX- BUT ONLY TO BE TAKEN DOWN WITH A HUGE SPINEBUSTER!! WHAT A FANTASTIC COUNTER BY REX MCALLISTER!! There’s no doubt that Rex avoided the end of his King of Elite run just there, but I don’t think he’s able to go for the cover just yet! He’s still hurt after the Hell’s Bells, and he hasn’t had a good chance to recover until just now! I’m not sure if that spinebuster would’ve ended the match anyway, but it definitely made a difference!

Persephone: See!? I never lost faith in Rex, and now look! Minerva’s dumb cheating tactics failed and she couldn’t get the win. Imagine cheating and still losing the match. You’ve gotta suck pretty badly for that to happen, and let’s be honest with ourselves. Has this really been a great season for Minerva? The highlights of it were some dumb Brand Warfare match everyone already forgot about and some meaningless win over Sienna Jade. Minerva’s just not all that good and Rex is proving that right now. Can’t wait for Rexy to be Champion again! 🥰

James Peters: Rex is getting back to his feet, but it looks like Minerva’s trying to as well! WAIT, REX QUICKLY GOES OVER TO MINERVA, AND HE LIFTS HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION! IF REX CONNECTS WITH THIS IT COULD BE LIGHTS OUT FOR MINERVA! MINERVA’S PUNCHING AWAY AT REX BUT REX FIGHTS THROUGH IT, BEFORE SENDING MINERVA INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH A BUCKLEBOMB! REX POPS MINERVA BACK UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE TURNING AWAY FROM THE CORNER, AND HE DROPS HER WITH A SIT OUT POWERBOMB! INCREDIBLE COMBINATION OF POWERBOMBS BY REX, AND NOW THERE’S THE PIN! THAT’S IT, THIS MATCH HAS TO BE OVER AFTER THAT!

ONE!
TWO!!
THREE-

Rich Russillo: WHAT!?!? HOW!?!? MINERVA KICKS OUT!! MINERVA KICKS OUT BEFORE THREE!!! I really don’t understand how Minerva managed to kick out of that! That was insane! I don’t think Rex cares though, AS HE IMMEDIATELY PUTS MINERVA INNA FULL BOSTON CRAB! THIS TIME HE HAS AHOLD OF BOTH LEGS, AND RIGHT AFTER RECEIVING A POWERBOMB I DON’T KNOW HOW MINERVA IS GONNA GET OUT OF THIS! THE ROPES AREN’T TOO FAR FROM MINERVA, BUT DOES SHE HAVE ENOUGH IN HER TO REACH OUT FOR THEM AFTER WHAT JUST HAPPENED!?

Persephone: I don’t know why she’d WANT to get out of the submission. What’s she gonna do after escaping it? Get beat up even worse than before? She was just powerbombed into the turnbuckles and then powerbombed onto the mat. If that didn’t let her know that she should probably just quit while she’s ahead, then I don’t know what will. Minerva’s still trying to get to the ropes, but come on. Just tap out Minerva, it’s really not worth it at this point. You’re never gonna beat Rexy, so give up so you don’t injure yourself or something… Actually… I wouldn’t mind seeing Minerva taken out with injury. INJURE HER REXY!!

James Peters: Minerva’s close to the ropes, AND SHE GRABS THEM! MINERVA GRABS ONTO THE ROPES, AND SHE IMMEDIATELY PULLS HERSELF OUT OF THE RING AS REX IS FORCED TO LET GO OF THE SUBMISSION! That was a very smart move by Minerva! Rolling out of the ring so Rex can’t continue his offense. You can’t deny how talented Minerva is, and definitely how smart she is. Rex now tries to exit the ring to follow Minerva- BUT MINERVA QUICKLY GRABS REX’S LEG AND PULLS IT OUT FROM UNDER HIM, CAUSING HIM TO DROP BACK FIRST ONTO THE APRON!

Rich Russillo: At this point of the match both Elitists are starting to look pretty worn out. This match has clearly taken a toll on both competitors, and honestly that’s nothing we didn’t already expect. We all knew going into this that things weren’t gonna be pretty. All these two are doing is proving exactly what we already knew. That was a great move by Minerva sweeping Rex’s leg out like that, she needs all the time she can get to recover right now after everything Rex has done in the past few minutes!

Persephone: It was a free shot! Rex clearly just let her get that one free shot in because things were so easy for him! Come on. Do you guys really think Rex couldn’t have ended the match by now if he really wanted to? You guys keep doubting Rexy and I don’t think I like it. You two need to start respecting him and stop pretending Minerva has any actual chance here. You guys have been hyping Minerva up all season just for her to not go anywhere. Why would anything suddenly change tonight!?

James Peters: Minerva rolled back into the ring before rolling right back out to restart the count, and now she goes after Rex- JUST TO RECEIVE A HUGE RIGHT HAND! REX IS TRYING TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST MINERVA- BUT MINERVA HITS REX WITH A FOREARM! MINERVA NOW GRABBING REX, AND SHE SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST ONTO THE APRON! Minerva now backs up as she notices the fact that Rex is right next to the ring post, AND NOW SHE HITS REX WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD, CRUSHING HIS HEAD AGAINST THE RING POST!

Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD!! Is Rex gonna be okay after that!? Minerva is rolling Rex back into the ring and if you ask me, this match is about to end right here and now! Minerva pulls Rex back up to his feet, AND SHE GETS HIM IN AN INVERTED FACELOCK! TWILIGHT!! TWILIGHT CONNECTS BY MINERVA, AND THAT’S IT! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT, REX MCALLISTER IS DONE FOR AND MINERVA IS MOVING ONTO ROUND TWO OF THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT! THE COVER BY MINERVA!!

ONE!
TWO!!
THREE!!-

Rich Russillo: WHAT!? HE GETS THE SHOULDER UP!?!?

Persephone: YES!!! I KNEW HE WOULD!! I ALWAYS KNEW REXY WAS GONNA GET THE SHOULDER UP BECAUSE HE’S THE BEST WRESTLER IN THE WORLD!! :blessed: !!!! I really don’t care what Minerva has to offer, because clearly it’s all been ineffective. Like I said she’s better off just quitting while she’s ahead. She’s actually embarrassing herself at this point.

James Peters: But Persephone, this has been a great back and forth match. Neither Minerva NOR Rex have been able to put the other away yet!

Persephone: Didn’t I already explain why? Were you listening? Rex is just letting Minerva stay in the match longer. She’s embarrassing herself clearly, but I think the gesture is actually very generous from Rexy.

James Peters: Well, I’m not sure how much I agree with that, ESPECIALLY AS MINERVA LOCKS IN THE OWL OF MINERVA!! MINERVA HAS THE OWL OF MINERVA LOCKED IN, AND WE ALL KNOW HOW GOOD REX MCALLISTER IS WITH SUBMISSIONS BUT THIS TIME HE’S ON THE RECEIVING END OF ONE! THIS DOESN’T LOOK GOOD AT ALL FOR REX, IMAGINE IF MINERVA IS ABLE TO DEFEAT HIM BY SUBMISSIO-

Persephone: SHUT! UP! DON’T YOU EVER SAY SOMETHING THAT STUPID AGAIN! Rexy is gonna be fine, something like that’s not gonna put him away!

Rich Russillo: How can you be so sure Persephone :lupe:. After everything these two have already went through tonight this submission is the last thing Rex wants to be put through! Rex isn’t one to usually lose by submission but I don’t know guys. I feel like that might just change tonight if Rex doesn’t quickly do something! There’s no way for him to try and grab the ropes in a submission like that, so he has to either break free of the submission or just tap out!

Persephone: Rexy can get out of it! He’s definitely gonna get out of the submission and he’s gonna be perfectly fine!

James Peters: Look. I’m not sure about this. Rex is clearly struggling in this submission and I don’t know HOW he’s gonna escape this! I think he might actually have to tap out here! Rex is trying everything he can to get out of it, but Minerva is doing a great job of keeping the submission locked in! I think this match is about to end, there’s no way Rex isn’t about to tap out in the next few moments-

Rich Russillo: WAIT!! REX ROLLS ONTO HIS BACK AND FREES HIS ARMS, BEFORE HITTING MINERVA WITH A HUGE BACK ELBOW TO THE FACE! REX ESCAPES THE SUBMISSION! BOTH ELITISTS GET BACK TO THEIR FEET, BUT REX IMMEDIATELY GRABS MINERVA FROM BEHIND AND DROPS HER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! HE DRAGS HER BACK TO HER FEET, AND DROPS HER WITH A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX!! REX GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET ONCE AGAIN WHILE HOLDING MINERVA, AND HE CONNECTS WITH A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX!! Rex with three German suplexes in a row, and that’s how you get back in the match! For a good while there it looked like Rex might have lost this one!

Persephone: Well that’s why you should start listening to me! I keep telling you guys that Rex is winning this match no matter what, yet you insist on trying to make Minerva feel better and for what?? They’re not paying attention to us, you can be honest! You both know Minerva has no chance, stop pretending otherwise. Now Rexy is pulling Minerva back up to her feet, and it looks like he’s gonna finally put this match away! REXY BOUNCES OFF OF THE ROPES, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE REX EFFECT!!

James Peters: NO!!! MINERVA PUSHES REX INTO THE CORNER- AND THEY JUST CRUSHED THE REFEREE BETWEEN THE TURNBUCKLES! MINERVA JUST SLAMMED REX INTO THE REFEREE, AND THE REFEREE IS DOWN! I DON’T THINK EITHER OF THE COMPETITORS NOTICED IN THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT THOUGH, AS REX HITS MINERVA WITH A HUGE JUMPING KNEE! Rex now running the ropes once more, AND THERE IT IS!! THE REX EFFECT CONNECTS ON MINERVA, AND JUST LIKE THAT REX GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

….
….

James Peters:… But there’s no referee to count his pin :lupe:.

Persephone: WHAT ARE THESE REFEREE’S MADE OUT OF!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? THIS MATCH SHOULD BE OVER RIGHT NOW!

Rich Russillo: Rex just now realized what happened, and he doesn’t look happy. I’m sure the match would’ve ended right then and there if the referee was able to make the count but the referee was knocked out while he and Minerva were fighting! It’s such a shame to see something like that happen, but now Rex is doing the smart thing and trying to wake up the referee! If the referee gets up quick enough Rex can still finish the match! He really needs to get back up though, the longer he stays down the further and further this match escapes from Rex-

James Peters: WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT!! MYLES!!! MYLES JUST SMASHED THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP IN REX’S FACE!!! WHAT THE HELL!?!?!? WHILE REX WAS TRYING TO WAKE UP THE REFEREE MYLES JUST RAN DOWN THE RAMP AND NOW HE JUST KNOCKED REX OUT WITH THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP! Myles has entered the ring now, and he’s helping Minerva up! Myles is letting Minerva know what just happened, and now he’s going to wake up the referee as Minerva pulls Rex towards the center of the ring!

Rich Russillo: ATLAS FALLS!!! ATLAS FALLS CONNECTS ON REX MCALLISTER, AND MYLES HAS WOKEN UP THE REFEREE!!! MINERVA GOES FOR THE COVER ON REX, DON’T TELL ME THIS IS HOW IT ENDS!! NOT LIKE THIS!!!

ONE!
TWO!!
THREE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner and advancing to the second round of the King of Elite tournament….. MMMIIIIIIIIIINNEEEERRRRVVVVAAAAA!!!!!!

Persephone: Not. Him. Again. You’ve got to be kidding me.

James Peters: MINERVA IS IN THE SECOND ROUND OF THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT, BUT… REALLY!?!? Myles completely screwed Rex over! There’s no way Rex stood a chance after being hit with the National Elite Championship! That was such a good match too, but in the end Minerva was basically handed a spot in the second round!

Rich Russillo: I’m sure Rex isn’t gonna take this lightly, but in the end I’m sure he had to have known Minerva isn’t the cleanest fighter.

James Peters: I don’t think anyone could have expected what happened at the end of that match.

Rich Russillo: Well, either way that’s it! Minerva is in the second round of the King of Elite tournament, so congratulations!

(‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ begins to play, and the virtual crowd begins booing as loud as they possibly can. Myles re-enters the ring with the National Elite Championship, and he holds up Minerva’s hand after the referee does the same. The two continue to celebrate despite all of the boos, meanwhile Rex has managed to pull himself over to the corner of the ring, holding his head while looking at Myles and Minerva, clearly unhappy with how things turned out. As Rex watches the two celebrate, Voltage fades away from ringside for the final time.)
