(EAW intro plays.)
(A highlight video recapping last week’s episode begins to play. Azrael, Myles, The Corona Hombres, Ms. Extreme, and Drake King all picked up victories, although the victories for Ms. Extreme and The Corona Hombres were marred in controversy. Nothing was settled between Darcy May Morgan, Malcolm Jones, and their War Games teammate, Drake. In fact, the situation was made worse when Drake laid out Malcolm with ‘The Guillotine.’ Captain Charisma rewarded the Voltage Brand Warfare team for their dominating performance at Territorial Invasion. TLA asked Captain Charisma to give him Drake in a Barbed Wire Massacre Match at Wicked Games. Ahren Fournier, Terry Chambers, and Minerva all stated their intentions to dethrone the newly crowned EAW World Champion, SOSA Henderson. Captain Charisma decided a triple threat match to crown the rightful number one contender would take place on the next episode of Voltage. Myles would decline an offer to make the match a fatal fourway, stating he just wants to continue hurting people and having great matches. After everyone would leave, Minerva would drop a little hint to Myles that perhaps he should set his sights on the National Elite Championship currently being held by Sienna Jade. Later on that night, Myles would do just that :wow:. Another match for Wicked Game was set when Parental Advisory and The Realm came face to face before PA’s match. The Unified Tag Team Championships will be defended on Halloween night!)
(The video fades out and the virtual members of the EAW Universe are shown as the camera pans around World 1 Theatre. “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula and ZillaKami, the official Voltage theme song is blaring through the speakers and after a moment, the camera cuts to the broadcast booth where James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone Tsitsipas are standing by.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another amazing episode of Sunday Night Voltage! As always, I am James Peters and joining me tonight are my broadcast colleagues, Rich Russillo, and Persephone! Guys, we are on the road to Wicked Games and last week, we had two huge matches announced.
Rich Russillo: That’s right, James! As we found out, TLA will finally get a chance to get his hands on Drake King and inside Barbed Wire Massacre no less. Last year, Charlie Marr defended the EAW World Championship against Ms. Extreme inside Barbed Wire Massacre at Wicked Games and it was a bloodbath to say the least.
James Peters: Every Barbed Wire Massacre Match has left an impression on the Elitists that have competed inside of it. I fear for TLA and Drake King, I really do.
Persephone: Well I don’t! Let them fuck one another up! Who cares? They’re both losers anyway and if I gotta suffer through a singles match between the two of them then it may as well be one where they could potentially have their careers ended. :wow:
(James just shakes his head.)
Rich Russillo: In addition to TLA and Drake, we found out that The Realm will defend their newly won Unified Tag Team Championships against the number one contenders, Parental Advisory. We are going to get a preview match of sorts later on tonight when Sierra Bradford takes on Korey Gaines.
Persephone: Those dumb bitches wasted our time last week by mocking Korey and whatever sexual tension he had going on with whatever the hell Silver Ann Gold was. Korey is definitely going to be looking for some kind of revenge tonight.
James Peters: We’re also going to find out who SOSA Henderson is going to face come Wicked Games. Ahren Fournier, Minerva, and Terry Chambers will compete to see who gets the first crack at dethroning SOSA. I can’t wait for that.
Rich Russillo: It’s going to be a great night, and let’s not waste anymore time. Our National Elite Champion, Sienna Jade, is on her way to the ring!
(The lights begin to flash as ‘Unfuckwithable’ by Deez Nutz begins to blast all throughout the arena.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… SIENNA JADE!!!
(A few moments pass as Sienna Jade emerges with her EAW National Elite Championship in her hand. She poses and raises her title high as the camera focuses on the glistening gold. Sienna then turns around and shows off her leather jacket with the letters, “UNFUCKWITHABLE” attached. She turns and takes the championship and throws it on her shoulder as she begins to strut down the ramp.)
Persephone: So honestly, I thought it was kind of funny that Myles being a fucking simp for Minerva prompted him to attack Sienna last week on Voltage. All Minerva had to do was whisper a few sweet nothings in Myles’ ear, and Sienna found herself on the receiving end of a ‘De Facto.’
Rich Russillo: It was interesting, that’s for sure. When Captain Charisma went to reward the Voltage Brand Warfare team for a job well done, Myles let it be known that he wasn’t really interested in pursuing any championships.
James Peters: Myles just wants to hurt people and stick to his own particular set of principles, and that is what Minerva pinpointed when she suggested he target Sienna Jade and the National Elite Championship.
(Sienna slides under the ring and climbs the nearest turnbuckle as she raises her title above her head with her two hands. She climbs down and motions for the microphone, and doesn’t waste any time getting down to business as soon as her music cuts.)
Sienna Jade: Life is good when you’re La Campeona, however I know that when I come to work and walk these halls, I’m a woman with a target painted firmly on her back. Everyone wants to be the one who dethrones Sienna Jade! If I were in their shoes and saw someone like myself representing Voltage as the face of the brand, I would have my sights firmly set on me. There is no better way to make your name and raise your stock than by facing me. Take Adam Lucas for example. The powers-to-be were so impressed with how incredible I made him look as a competitor that Dynasty immediately requested him for their roster. That’s the type of power and influence I have here, and as The Locker Room Leader, I speak for everyone when I say good luck on Dynasty, Adam Lucas. :wow:
(The virtual members of the Voltage crowd, as well as everyone else pretty much echoed Sienna’s words. It’s no doubt that in a short amount of time Adam Lucas managed to cement himself as a rising star in this world, and there’s no doubt he is destined for great things on Friday nights.)
Sienna Jade: Now, about that target painted on my back. Apparently I missed the memo where Myles and Minerva were crowned King and Queen of Voltage, but if Myles wants to listen to his lady and get himself involved in an unwinnable situation, then so be it. I would be going against my own words if I didn’t accept Myles as a challenger to my National Elite Championship with open arms, so I can only assume that’s what he wants. It’s not like I’m buying the bullshit that’s swirling around about his intentions. Even though I don’t know that much about Myles, people talk, and apparently he is yet another person who has some criticisms about how I live my life. I really don’t think I’ve ever pretended to be anything other than a spoiled, privileged princess who’s had everything handed to her throughout her life. My easy life is what’s allowed me to get into wrestling and focus solely on becoming the greatest to ever live. I am the model Elitist, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with how I conduct myself. More people should strive to be just like me, even though the standard I set is impossibly high. I can’t wait for this dumb ass muthafucka Myles to come out here and publically state his intentions, so why waste anymore time? I would love to see this pussy stand before me as opposed to attacking me from behind.
(Sienna smirks and lowers the microphone, and as if on cue, “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi begins to play. There is a mixed reaction for Myles as he steps on stage, but that’s really the last thing someone like Myles cares about. The fans and their opinion of him are not his concern. Myles has his eyes fixed firmly on Sienna as he makes his way to the ring. He takes a moment to grab a spare microphone before climbing in and standing right in front of La Campeona.)
Myles: Here’s my biggest problem with you, Sienna. ‘Even though I don’t know much about Myles.’
Sienna Jade: Well, at least I’m honest about it. Who are you to me anyway?
Myles: Well for starters, I’m one-half of the team that dethroned the Jaded Hearts for the Unified Tag Team Championships. You are pretty familiar with me, at least inside the ring, because we all know you pretty much coasted and was carried during your tag team days with Kassidy. I know, I know… that’s what everyone says. Must be some truth to it, huh? She did most of the talking that week anyway while you focused on your Women’s World Championship defense against Raven Roberts, so maybe I shouldn’t be surprised that you don’t have a clue as to who I am and what I’m really about. You made a similar mistake against Shane Gates when you conveniently forgot you had already faced him back in War Games 2018. Your memory though :wow: Your lack of awareness of what really goes on around here :wow: Your attention to detail when it comes to match results :wow: What’s the expression the cool kids use? We stan a true leader :wow:
(Sienna does not look happy that Myles is mocking her at the moment.)
Myles: Go ahead and clap back with one of your usual generic replies about how none of this matters because you are unfuckwithable, and the greatest thing alive. You’re no better than Charlie Marr when it comes to hiding your own incompetence behind a few insults and a lot of repetitive, incoherent babbling. It’s kind of surprising that you actually know I recently lost to Rex McAllister when I faced him for the EAW World Championship, but good on you. That’s something, I guess, unless you thought I was going to find it insulting that you pointed it out. I don’t because I accomplished my main goal that night and it was laying waste to Rex. He’s another greedy, materialistic Elitist who lives in la la land, and needed a reality check, but that night I settled for leaving a lasting impression on him. I guess Rex got that reality check at Territorial Invasion, and that’s more than fine with me. Come Wicked Games, I plan to give you a much needed one.
(Sienna raises an eyebrow.)
Sienna Jade: Is that so?
Myles: You just said that you would be going back on your own words if you didn’t accept me as the next challenger to your championship, however unlike you, I make sure I know every member of the roster. You’ve never been known for being honorable, and speaking of actual bullshit, imagine thinking that this title reign of yours is going to be different than the rest :mjlol: Still cheap victories, but hey, that’s another story for another day.
(Sienna Jade takes a deep breath. It’s clear that she is attempting to maintain her composure and not slap the shit out of Myles for being so disrespectful towards her.)
Sienna Jade: Just make your fucking point, or announcement, or whatever.
Myles: Alright, then. At Wicked Games, it’s going to be you versus me for the National Elite Championship. There will be no third person added to the match for you to pin after capitalizing on someone else’s work. There will be no dimwitted bitch with one foot out the door for you to beat up and take an eye from. Instead you’ll be getting the absolute best version of Myles, and I look forward to ripping that belt from your hands, and watching you crack after the fact.
(Sienna’s eyes narrow and she removes the championship from her shoulder. She let’s it dangle in Myles’ face.)
Sienna Jade: You can bring the best version of Myles to Wicked Games but it won’t make a damn bit of difference in the end when my hand is raised, and I’m STILL the National Elite Champion. Bitch.
(Sienna drops the microphone and “Unfuckwithable” by Deez Nuts begins to play. The champion shoots another glare at Myles and exits the ring, leaving her Wicked Games opponent standing in the ring with a smirk on his face.)
(Voltage fades to the backstage area.)
(The camera fades backstage, specifically to newly crowned EAW Champion SOSA Henderson’s locker room. The locker room is decked out and decorated, giving it a very royal look. SOSA himself is dressed in very fine clothes with the EAW Championship strapped around his waist, and he’s seated in a throne as bitches surround him, feeding him grapes. In the room is also SOSA’s Uncle, Tony Henderson standing next to SOSA.)
Bitch: Are you ready for Kasey later?
(SOSA just starts laughing, clearly not seeing Kasey Kaos as a very big threat to him. Meanwhile, the other bitches around him begin talking.)
Bitches: Of course he is! He’s SOSA Henderson! SOSA’s always ready, that’s why he’s the EAW Champion! SOSA can do anything 🥰! Nobody can touch SOSA!
SOSA Henderson: That’s right. Nobody can touch me, no matter who they are. Not Kasey Kaos, and especially not anybody in that contendership match tonight. I already said everything I needed to about Kasey this week, I’m just gonna beat her and move on. That contendership match though, I really don’t care who wins it. Minerva, Terry Chambers, Ahren Fournier, doesn’t matter, it’s all the same to me. I’mma beat they ass just like I’mma beat Kasey’s later tonight. This is my show, and I ain’t losin’ this title for a very long time. I don’t care how good those three are or how good Kasey Kaos may be. It didn’t matter how good Rex was, I still outsmarted him for weeks then took his title, and whoever steps up and wins that contendership match is gonna suffer the same fate. All they really fighting for is to see who gets to be SOSA’s first EAW Championship defense. I ain’t worried about Wicked Games, not one bit. I got this far, ain’t nobody taking this away from me.
(As SOSA finishes speaking, another bitch walks into the camera’s view, and she’s holding an iPad in her hand.)
Bitch: SOSA, it looks like Terry, Minerva and Ahren had some final words before their match.
SOSA Henderson: Really? Bet, let’s see it.
(The bitch hands the iPad to SOSA Henderson. SOSA opens it, and the first video that plays is from Ahren Fournier. Ahren’s sitting in front of a white backdrop with the words “Wicked Games” repeated all over it, and after a few seconds Ahren begins to speak.)
Ahren Fournier: C’mon, we already know who’s winning this match and becoming number one contender. Not weird ass Minerva. Not Terrance who couldn’t even take out Chris Elite with three of us next to him. Me! I pinned SOSA’s overrated ass back at Bloodsport and that same night I said I should’ve been the one getting an EAW Championship match! Somehow SOSA got it instead of me when he literally lost that match, but whatever. I’m the GOAT, I’m way better than someone like SOSA, so I’m just gonna have to be the one that takes the title from him. I don’t know how Rex let that SOSA of all people get the title in the first place. Thought he was better than that. Guess not. Oh well, sucks to be him. Winning the EAW Championship’s just gonna be way easier now anyway since Soda Henderson can’t do anything right. He’s always been a flop, he can’t compare to me and my greatness. I already proved I’m better than him back at Bloodsport and I’m easily a bigger star than SOSA could ever dream of being. Once I get the opportunity that title is mine. Nobody cares about “Soda appreciation month”, these people need me as their EAW Champion! Just imagine Voltage with Ahren Fourner as EAW Champ. No Kassidy Heart to screw me over. No ILLIONAIRES in sight. No Ryan fucking Wilson purposefully trying to hold me back. Just me with the title I rightfully deserve after pinning SOSA at Bloodsport then winning AGAIN at Territorial Invasion, and the Unified Tag Team Championship I’mma win with Jamie after we run through the Grand Prix since most of the other teams in it are trash and don’t have the chemistry we do. This is exactly what I needed. The GOAT is finally getting the recognition he deserves! Minerva and I guess Terry helped Voltage win at T.I or whatever, but I was team Captain for a reason. I deserve this way more than either of them. I led our team to victory against Dynasty and Showdown. I really earned this opportunity ages ago to be honest. I’ll settle for this contendership match but after all I’ve done for Voltage I should’ve just been handed the EAW Championship. Then again, I’m fine with kicking SOSA’s ass again. SOSA’s an easy match. What better way to continue my GOATdemption tour than beating SOSA again with the EAW Championship involved? It was nice of SOSA to keep that title warm for me. I haven’t held a Championship in a while, but very soon that’s gonna change.
(The video ends, and SOSA Henderson looks up at his Uncle Tony, completely unimpressed with the video and what Ahren Fournier said.)
SOSA Henderson: Really?
(Tony Henderson shrugs, and Voltage fades to its first commercial break of the night.)
(Commercial for Ronan Malosi’s new “Victory Milk” brand milk. It’s probably for the best that you don’t buy it.)
(‘Ich Will’ by Rammstein begins playing as “Rotten” Ben Roth makes his way onto the stage, holding a sjambok in hand. As he makes his way to the ring with a pure look of determination in his eyes, set to do battle against Lisa Wren. Meanwhile, Bella Braxton prepares to start her introduction)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Hailing from Soweto, South Africa, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is… “ROTTEEENNNNNNNNNNN” BEN ROTHHH!!!
James Peters: “Rotten” Ben Roth, a competitor with a lot of promise here on Voltage. He’s shown so much potential since bursting onto the scene here at Fight Grid.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, you have to think he’s feeling particularly “rotten” after losing to Azrael last week in a hard fought matchup.
Persephone: He’s smelling particularly rotten too.
James Peters: With the look he has in his eyes right now, you better hope he didn’t hear you, Persephone.
Persephone: Please, I’ll call 911 to send his ass back to prison.
James Peters: :whoa:
Rich Russillo: Nevertheless, Ben Roth is looking to bounce back from his loss last week and he’s looking to do so at Lisa Wren’s expense who certainly has her work cut out for her against this mountain of a man tonight.
(Ben’s theme is eventually replaced by the instrumentals of “Rage” by Rico Nasty. The virtual crowd gives a mixed reaction as Lisa Wren makes her way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… hailing from British Columbia, Canada… weighing in at 140 pounds… LISA WREN!
James Peters: Here comes Lisa Wren! She’s coming into this match with a very similar situation to Ben Roth. Looking to bounce back and pick up some steam after her loss to Kasey Kaos in the Specialists Tournament.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, tough break for Lisa. You have to imagine she’s very frustrated. But maybe she can turn that frustration from a bad thing to a good thing and use it as fuel to take down this much bigger opponent.
James Peters: Most definitely! But who knows though? Kasey’s cockiness could come cost her as she’s said she doesn’t really see Ben as being on her level.
Persephone: Not on her level? They’re both trash so I don’t really see a difference in the two.
James Peters: What my colleague means to say is they’re both bright up and coming stars looking to make an impact. And this match sure does have combustible written all over it!
Perspehone: That’s not what I meant at all.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: There’s the bell and the match begins with these two locking up in the center of the ring. Ben Roth uses his strength advantage to back Lisa Wren up into the corner. Roth attempts to score a knife edge chop on Lisa Wren who ducks under and scores one of her own.
Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK! IT HAD NO EFFECT ON ROTH WHO’S JUST SHRUGGED IT OFF! Roth gives out a tiny smirk as he shoves Lisa into the ropes and tosses her overhead with a BACK BODY DROP!
James Peters: Lisa Wren is in a world of hurt right now as Ben goes to pick her up BUT LISA COUNTERS WITH A KICK TO THE FACE WHICH STUNS BEN! Lisa makes her way to her feet and delivers a flawless dropkick! Lisa makes that look easy!
Persephone: Eh, I’ve seen better.
James Peters: :wow: Lisa Wren is back on the attack! She delivers a JUMPING HIGH KNEE STRIKE which connects right on the jaw of Ben Roth!
Rich Russillo: I think I just saw a tooth fly out!
James Peters: That knee strike is definitely taking effect as Ben backs up into the corner, clenching his jaw. Lisa Wren begins building up a head of steam as she DELIVERS A DROPKICK TO BEN ROTH IN THE CORNER!!
Rich Russillo: SHE’S NOT DONE YET! LISA SPRINGS BACK UP AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES TO DELIVER ANOTHER DROPKICK TO ROTH IN THE CORNER!!
Persephone: :yawn: Can she do something different?
Rich Russillo: You could try something different by going on a date with me.
Persephone: Ew, you’re gross.
Rich Russillo: :mjcry:
James Peters: Meanwhile in the ring, Lisa is looking to connect with another dropkick while Ben is stunned in the corner. BEN IS LOOKING TO COUNTER THOUGH AS HE ATTEMPTS TO CONNECT WITH A VICIOUS LARIAT ON LISA! WHO DUCKS UNDER AND SPRINGS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND LISA DELIVERS ANOTHER DROPKICK TO BEN WHICH TAKES THE ALMOST 7-FOOTER OFF HIS FEET!! Ben rolls out of the ring to get some breathing room. But Lisa isn’t going to allow him to recover as Lisa runs off the ropes. AND SHE FLIES TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A CORKSCREW PLANCHA!!!
Rich Russillo: NO, WAIT! BEN CAUGHT LISA, AN- OH MY GOD! HE JUST SLINGED HER INTO THE RINGPOST! YOU CAN JUST HEAR THE IMPACT LISA’S BACK MADE WITH THE POST! Lisa grabs a hold of her back in pain. But Ben wastes no time and rolls Lisa to the center of the ring. HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS! CAN THIS BE IT?!
James Peters: NO!! LISA WREN SOMEHOW HANGS IN THERE! HOW ON EARTH?!
Persephone: Damn! Why’d she have to kick out?! I’m tired of sitting through the bore of a match damn. :noah:
James Peters: Bore of a match? These two are putting on a great match so far. Both are on their “A” game to pick up a victory tonight. It could do a lot for their momentum.
Persephone: If you say so, still a borefest.
Rich Russillo: Ben mounts the downed Lisa Wren and delivers some elbow strikes right to the face of Lisa. Lisa is clearly dazed and Ben attempts to stand up BUT LISA GRABS HIS ARM AND LOCKS HIM IN A TRIANGLE CHOKE! THE TRIANGLE CHOKE IS CINCHED IN ON BEN ROTH! BEN IS FLAILING HIS ARMS LOOKING FOR SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY TO ESCAPE THE HOLD HERE!
James Peters: THERE MAY BE NO ESCAPE, LISA HAS BEN TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO, WILL HE TAP?!
Persephone: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, TAP OUT!!
Rich Russillo: You may just get your wish, Persephone. BEN ROTH SEEMS TO BE FADIN- WAIT! ROTH IS MANAGING TO HOIST UP LISA WREN WHILE STILL HAVING THE TRIANGLE CHOKE LOCKED IN!
Persephone: GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!
James Peters: ROTH ATTEMPTS TO DUMP LISA OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT LISA HANGS ONTO THE TRIANGLE CHOKE!! ROTH IS PANICKING! BUT LISA CANT KEEP THIS HOLD LOCKED ON THOUGH AS THE REFEREE IS BEGINNING HIS COUNT! LISA HAS TIL THE COUNT OF FIVE TO RELEASE THE HOLD!!
James Peters: Lisa releases the hold and rolls to her feet on the outside. Ben meanwhile drops to one knee, grabbing his shoulder in pain after that deep triangle choke was cinched in. Ben may wanna turn around though as Lisa Wren has gotten up onto the apron and seems to be setting up for something. Ben notices this and looks to cut Lisa Wren off who drives her shoulder into his gut which hunches Ben over. What’s Lisa gonna go for here? LISA SPRINGS OVERHEAD OF BEN AND CATCHES HIM WITH KAI-ROPRACTOR!! THAT FRONT FLIP BACKSTABBER! THE ATHLETICISM OF LISA WREN IS ON FULL DISPLAY!
Rich Russillo: LISA SPRINGS INTO A COVER, HOOKING THE LEG OF BEN ROTH AND THE REF GOES TO COUNT!
James Peter: BEN MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! MUCH TO THE SHOCK AND DISMAY OF LISA WREN WHO ALMOST HAD BEN BEAT THERE!! LISA SEEMS TO BE WONDERING WHAT SHE’LL HAVE TO DO TO TAKE DOWN BEN ROTH!
Rich Russillo: Lisa may have just hatched out a plan though as she ascends to the rope. Lisa is stalking Ben Roth as he slowly makes it to his feet AND LISA SOARS OFF THE TOP! ONLY TO GET CAUGHT WITH A KICK TO THE GUT BY BEN ROTH! WHO HITS LISA WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! Ben kips back up to his feet and runs off the ropes to connect with a BIG BOO- BUT NO! LISA ARCHES HER BACK TO EVADE THE BIG BOOT LIKE SOMETHING STRAIGHT OUT OF ‘THE EXORCIST’ OR ‘THE MATRIX!’ Lisa pops back up to connect with the SUPERKICK!! AND LISA CHARGES AT BEN WHO REMAINS STANDING BUT BEN SIDESTEPS OUT THE WAY CAUSING LISA TO REBOUND OFF THE ROPES! BEN USES LISA’S MOMENTUM AGAINST HER THOUGH TO CATCH HER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! LISA ROLLS THROUGH AND BEN CATCHES HER WITH A BIG BOOT-
James Peters: LISA MANAGES TO EVADE AND AGAIN AND THIS TIME CATCHES BEN IN A SCHOOL GIRL!! IS LISA GONNA PULL OFF AN UPSET HERE?!
James Peters: ROTH KICKS OUT!! LISA SEEMS TO HAVE INFURIATED THE ROTTEN ONE! AS BEN HOISTS HER ABOVE HIS HEAD IN A GORILLA PRESS POSITION!! LISA HAS TO BE CLOSE TO 7-FEET IN THE AIR RIGHT NOW! ROTH SOON DRIVES LISA DOWN RIGHT ACROSS HIS KNEE FOR A GORILLA PRESS GUTBUSTER!! ALL THE WIND HAS TO BE TAKEN OUT THE SAILS OF LISA WREN RIGHT NOW!! YOU CAN SEE HER DESPERATELY TRYING TO GASP FOR AIR! BEN NOTICES THIS AND SEES THIS AS THE PERFECT CHANCE TO GO FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN NOT ONLY KICKS OUT BUT CATCHES BEN INTO A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK CROSSFACE!
James Peters: BASED OFF HOW CLOSE BEN CAME TO DEFEAT EARLIER WHEN LISA SLAPPED ON A SUBMISSION, THIS COULD BE IT RIGHT HERE!! BEN IS CLEARLY PANICKING AGAIN AS HE KNOWS THIS CAN SIGNAL FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE END!
Rich Russillo: LISA IS WRENCHING ON THAT HOLD WITH EVERYTHING SHE’S GOT! SHE MAY POP BEN’S SHOULDERS RIGHT OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS!! BEN’S BEST BET IS TO GET TO THE ROPES RIGHT NOW! AND LUCKILY FOR HIM, HE’S NOT TOO FAR AWAY!
James Peters: BEN IS LITERALLY TRYING TO INCH HIS WAY OVER TO THE ROPES USING HIS LEGS!! BEN IS LITERALLY LIFTING HIS LEG UP AND TRYING TO THROW IT ONTO THE ROPE BUT IT’S NOT WORKING!! BEN NEEDS TO GET A LITTLE BIT CLOSER! BUT YOU CAN SEE THE WEAR AND TEAR THIS HOLD IS TAKING ON BEN! HE IS SCREAMING TO THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS OF RIGHT NOW! HE MAY JUST GIVE UP! THE REF IS ON STANDBY ASKING BEN IF HE WANTS TO QUIT! BUT WAIT!! BEN SOMEHOW MANAGES TO GET HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE JUST BARELY GOT IT!
James Peters: Lisa notices this and has let go of the hold. You can almost see a brief look of reprieve on Ben’s face. As he favors to both of his shoulders. One of those shoulders which already had some damage done to it when Lisa locked in that triangle earlier.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, if Lisa gets him in one more predicament like that, it’s over. Lisa has come close to submitting Ben on two occasions now. He needs to be more careful, and a bit more cautious to stay in the fight.
James Peters: You can see a look of cockiness on the face of Lisa Wren. She knows that she could quite possibly have this win in the bag. And in turn, prove that Ben Roth just isn’t on her level.
Rich Russillo: If you ask me, Ben may be on her level already or pretty damn close to it cause he’s going toe-to-toe with Lisa in this match and holding his own.
James Peters: Yes, this one can go either way. As Lisa turns around to notice that Ben has rolled over onto the ring apron. Lisa notices this and goes to retrieve Ben WHO ENDS UP CATCHING HER WITH A HOTSHOT! DRIVING LISA’S THROAT DOWN ONTO THE TOP ROPE! LISA GRABS HER THROAT AS SHE TRIES TO GET AIR! IT SEEMS THAT THE ART OF WAR HAS INDEED PAYED OFF FOR ROTH! AS HE JUST DECEIVED LISA WREN!!
Rich Russillo: LOOK! BEN ROTH HAS SLID BACK INTO THE RING AND CATCHES LISA WREN WITH A DEVASTATING BIG BOOT THAT TURNS HER INSIDE OUT!! BEN HAS BEEN ATTEMPTING THAT MOVE ALL MATCH!!!
James Peters: AND BEN IS SIGNALING FOR THE END!! AS HE IS LINING UP LISA WREN IN THE CORNER, WAITING FOR HER TO GET TO HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN HAS MADE IT TO HER FEET BUT SHE’S NOT GONNA LIKE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SHE TURNS AROUND!! BEN ROTH BUILDS UP A HEAD OF STEAM FOR THE SHANK!!! NO- LISA WREN EVADES THE SPEAR WITH AN AERIAL CARTWHEEL!! ONCE AGAIN THAT ATHLETICISM ON DISPLAY!! ROTH’S MOMENTUM ENDS UP DRIVING HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!
James Peters: LISA HAS NOTICED THIS AND ROLLS OUT TO THE APRON! WHAT’S SHE GOING FOR?! SHE DROPKICKS BEN’S HEAD AGAINST THE RINGPOST AND HE PLOPS DOWN IN THE RING!! LISA TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THIS BY REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES, ROLLING THROUGH AND LANDING…ROLLING THUNDER!!! LISA GOES FOR THE PIN!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(The instrumentals of ‘Rage’ by Rico Nasty once again blasts over the PA System as Lisa Wren has won. The crowd bursts into cheers after Lisa’s performance in the match.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. LISA WREN!!
James Peters: Great match, and great win by Lisa Wren. She’s definitely going somewhere on the Voltage Brand if she keeps picking up wins like that.
Persephone: Yeah, hopefully to the garbage.
James Peters: More like to the main event.
Rich Russillo: Lisa definitely impressed here but so did Ben Roth. He certainly gave Lisa a run for her money. I’d love to see both these up and coming talents some more here on Voltage.
(Lisa Wren is seen walking up the entrance ramp. But Ben Roth is clearly infuriated by his loss tonight.)
James Peters: Ben certainly does not look happy. Let’s hope he doesn’t do anything to get himself landed back in jail.
(Ben is shown throwing a fit at ringside, knocking over the steps, slamming his hands on the ring apron. The referee attempts to calm Ben down but Ben grabs the ref by his head and begins crushing it with his hands!)
James Peters: WHAT THE HELL!?
Rich Russillo: :dahell: Somebody get this maniac outta here, what is he hurting this poor ref for!?
James Peters: Ben Roth is crushing the referee’s head! Someone needs to get out here!
Rich Russillo: Look, here comes some security, thank God!
(Ben continues crushing the referee’s head, until finally security gets involved and pulls Ben away from the referee as some security members tend to the ref.)
Persephone: Of course, the most interesting thing of the match happens AFTER the match! I wanna see Ben do that again.
James Peters: :comeagain:
Rich Russillo: Well, it seems that Ben’s work is done here as he makes his way to the back.
(Ben Roth makes his way to the back as Voltage fades away from ringside.)
(Promotional ad for Wicked Games, featuring matches such as Drake King versus TLA in Barbed Wire Massacre and Sienna Jade versus Myles for the National Elite Championship.)
(The camera fades backstage, and Donovan Duke is in the area performing some squats, preparing for his big match with Myles later tonight. Donovan has had some huge performances lately and last week he took Drake King to the limit. As Donovan continues to work out, Mr. Jacobs suddenly shows up. Donovan stops and looks up at the brother of Azrael and his keeper.)
Mr. Jacobs: I am glad I found you back here, Donovan, I think we need to talk about you and Azrael.
Donovan Duke: There is nothing to talk about, Mr. Jacobs, now if you will excuse me, I need to get ready for my match with Myles.
Mr. Jacobs: I can appreciate your efforts for a win here tonight, just like last week against Drake King, but we need to talk about what happened at Territorial Invasion. It is very important that….
(Duke cuts him off.)
Donovan Duke: With all due respect, Mr. Jacobs, I just want to move forward and concentrate on the future. It is important that I am able to just concentrate on the4 here and now, so while I appreciate the sentiment and wanting to talk to me about what had happened, I rather just let it all bygones be bygones and focus on Myles and anyone else that gets in line.
Mr. Jacobs: That is very noble of you Donovan, but I don’t think that Azrael is ready to move on. In fact, I am afraid that Azrael is becoming more dangerous than ever, since Territorial Invasion, and I am worried that Azrael is going to set his sights on you, next. That is why I am here, trying to prevent anything horrific happening to you.
(Donovan Duke looks a bit confused since he was the model tag team partner and Azrael was the one who was all over the place, almost killing Hannah Marin in the process.)
Donovan Duke: Okay, then my question to you is Mr. Jacobs is, why would he do that? I did the best I could at TI, and it’s not my fault we lost the match. I didn’t get pinned. I wasn’t the one that went crazy and attacked his own partner, I am also not the one who almost hurt a woman no matter who she is. I was a good partner, I did my job and unfortunately we didn’t win, I am not blaming him by any means, it was a team effort, but still, you do understand what I am trying to say.
Mr. Jacobs: I do but unfortunately that is not the way Azrael sees it. He only does what he feels and what his own eyes tell him and I am afraid that you could be his next target, Donovan.
(Shaking his head, this is not what Donovan Duke needed to hear at the moment, trying to get focused on Myles, another huge match tonight. He is about to answer.)
Donovan Duke: Look…..
(Suddenly they are both interrupted with a blood curdling scream from a woman, Donovan Duke’s eyes widen, Mr. Jacobs looks like he has seen a ghost, quickly running down the hall to find a beaten and bloodied Lisa Wren on the floor sprawled out, still in her wrestling gear. Azrael is screaming as there are officials trying to hold him back as he attempts to go after her again. Donovan Duke and Mr. Jacobs jump on top of Azrael and pull him out of the locker room as he continues to throw men around left and right.)
Mr. Jacobs: ENOUGH! WE HAVE A MATCH RIGHT NOW AZRAEL! STOP IT AND LET’S GET TO THE RING
Donovan Duke: CALM DOWN! GET HIM OUT OF HERE NOW!
(The officials continue to push Azrael out, Mr. Jacobs is able to get him focused on him as he pushes people out of the way and Jacobs clips the chain around his neck and pulls him out. Donovan Duke looks on as Mr. Jacobs leads the monster to the ring. The Oklahoma Gentleman turns back around and checks on the unconscious Lisa Wren, screaming for EMT’s to check on her bloody mess, Donovan holds her as he looks back at Azrael storming off and Mr. Jacobs pulling him away.)
(Thankfully, the scene fades away from the backstage area.)
(It reopens a few seconds later to the ringside area.)
(‘Girei’ by Yasuharo Takanashi starts playing as the creepy monster with the name of Azrael is seen walking to the ring. Azrael walks all by himself as we can see a little bit of his brother, Mr. Jacobs’s shadow behind him. Jacobs looks very cautious, especially after what Azrael just did not long ago.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from The Warehouse, weighing in at 290 pounds, accompanied by Mr. Jacobs, AZRAEL!!!!!
James Peters: I…. Honestly don’t know what to say. Azrael was just seen laying waste to Lisa Wren, and now he’s coming out to have a match. Is this really okay? I feel like Azrael shouldn’t be allowed out here, he could be a serious danger to us all.
Rich Russillo: Azrael’s becoming extremely dangerous, but I worry for Donovan Duke right now. As for his match tonight, I have no idea how it’ll go. Neither man is the most stable, this is about to be quite the match.
Persephone: Budget horror movie villain versus angry homeless man, I’m not too excited about this.
(As Azrael is seen waiting on one corner,’Overlord’ by Suicide Silence is getting louder and louder. The Natural Born Killer, Shane Gates walked to the ring in a face full of rage. He walks slowly to the ring as the crowd watches him, booing at the same time, despite the booing not at all bothering Gates as he continues walking down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… making his way to the ring, from Huntington Beach, California… weighing in at 213 pounds… HE IS THE NATURAL BORN KILLER, SHANE GATES!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Will Shane Gates beat Azrael? That’s what I’m wondering right now, and I feel like this could be a very close contested contest. Both men suffered a loss at Territorial Invasion, and at this point it looks like it might have had the same effect on them both.
Rich Russillo: You’re not wrong. As the weeks go by Shane Gates just looks angrier and angrier. Only a matter of time until this anger is put to good use, and Shane breaks this streak of bad luck he’s been having.
Persephone: streak of bad luck? Funny way of saying he has no talent.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: WOAH, A QUICK CLOTHESLINE FROM SHANE GATES, SENDING AZRAEL DOWN, BUT AZRAEL GETS RIGHT BACK UP!?
Rich Russillo: Now, Shane Gates is trying to destroy his adversary with a couple of elbows to his face but Azrael isn’t backing down and he kicked Shane’s guts! Azrael with an attempt of throwing Gates to the turnbuckle but Gates countered and he threw Azrael to the ropes, Azrael ran and he charged, Shane Gates with a dropkick attempt, missed his target and he fell flat on his face! Azrael with a quick headlock, trying to control the match all for himself while Mr. Jacobs is waiting outside, what is he doing right now?
James Peters: When he is still focusing on his client, Azrael’s headlock is still getting tight on Shane Gates as he tried to reach the ropes, Azrael changed it into a Russian Leg Sweep! Azrael isn’t wasting any chances, he quickly got Shane Gates up and threw him to the ropes, Big Boot and Shane Gates bounced and landed on his head! A quick Suplex! Another one! Another one! Azrael, quick with the elbows to Shane’s face before he went to kick his head. Those are some nasty kicks! He is grabbing Shane Gates again, ready for a Sitout powerbomb, AND HE MANAGED TO PULL IT OFF! WOW! However, he is playing with Shane Gates right now!
Persephone: Wow. Shane is just the worst, isn’t he?
Rich Russillo: Azrael with a chop right to the chest of the Natural Born Killer! OH! THAT MUST HURT! Azrael quickly throws him to the other side of the turnbuckle, Shane Gates is in position, Azrael with a Stingers Splash, and he misses! Shane Gates charges, DROPKICK! Shane Gates now, kicking Azrael who is stuck in the corner right now!
James Peters: Shane Gates throws Azrael to the outside but Azrael uses the ropes to his advantage and the ropes are going to help him stand up, WAIT HE RECOVERED QUICK! ANOTHER STAREDOWN BETWEEN THE TWO!!!! Shane Gates pushed Azrael and Azrael delivered a devastating chop that could be heard around the ring but SHANE GATES DIDN’T EVEN FLINCH!!!! HE IS LAUGHING AT AZRAEL, AND NOW HE IS GOING TO THROW AZRAEL OUT FOR REAL!!!! HOWEVER, MR. JACOBS THREW HIM IN THE RING AND SHANE GATES ALREADY WENT FAR WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!!! MR. JACOBS GOT HIT AND HE FELT THE IMPACT OF THAT TOPE CON HILO!!!! HOWEVER, SINCE THAT DIDN’T HIT AZRAEL, AZRAEL IS GOING TO RECOVER EASILY.
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates now posing after the move on Mr. Jacobs, he is celebrating before the match even ends! He ran into the ring, BIG BOOT! AZRAEL GRABS SHANE GATES, HEADLOCK AGAIN! HE THROWS GATES TO THE ROPES, HE GOT HIM THIS TIME, SPINEBUSTER!!!!! HE GOT HIM UP AGAIN, BIEL THROW BUT SHANE GATES STOOD ON HIS OWN TWO FEET AGAIN, HE QUICKLY JUMPS TO THE TURNBUCKLE AND NOW, MOONSAULT!!!!!!! AZRAEL LANDS ON HIS BACK!!!! Shane Gates quickly went to the turnbuckle to rest but OH NO, HE CAN’T REST EASILY! AZRAEL GOT UP AGAIN!!!!! Shane Gates’s eyes are opened big! He is shocked! AZRAEL WITH A CANNONBALL OUT OF NOWHERE!
James Peters: Is Azrael even a human? I don’t expect something like this! This is something extraordinary. He went with even more elbows to Shane Gates, not giving him any chance to make a comeback!!!! Now, the referee starts counting. We might see a count out victory for Azrael.
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates is struggling to crawl to the step and now he grabs the step, he is going to get up fast. Using his hand to assist him, he is going to get up by himself but wait a minute!!!! Mr. Jacobs is grabbing his legs right now while Azrael is looking at his opponent outside!!!! AZRAEL WITH A CROSSBODY AND THEY’RE BOTH DOWN AGAIN!!!!! Mr. Jacobs grabs his leg while Azrael jumps, causing his leg to spin a little bit. Now, Shane Gates is seen grabbing his leg right now. Shane Gates is on his way to the steps again, this time he is crawling hard, even when Mr. Jacobs is still getting his leg, Gates changed his target for some time, ONE PUNCH TO THE HEAD OF MR. JACOBS, TWO PUNCH, HOWEVER, MR. JACOBS WENT WITH ONE PUNCH TO HIS LEG WITHOUT THE REFEREE NOTICING! AZRAEL IS BACK AGAIN AND HE QUICKLY CAME WITH SOME ELBOWS! Azrael throws Shane Gates back into the ring. Azrael also went to the top ropes…. He is ready! SENTON!!!!!!! Shane Gates’s legs are done!!!! He went to pin the Natural Born Killer! HE WENT FOR THE COVER, THIS COULD BE IT!
Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!!!! THR-
James Peters: SHANE GATES KICKED OUT!!!!! How did he survive easily?! That leg damage would’ve broken my legs and I bet I wouldn’t get to walk. Azrael quickly kicked Shane Gates’s legs! He is just torturing him and this point. He quickly grabs his legs again, he is ready to lock Shane Gates with the Sharpshooter!!!!! HE IS IN!!!!!! SHANE GATES IS STRUGGLING!!!!! I THINK HE’S GONNA TAP OUT- WAIT NO! HOW!? SHANE GATES MANAGES TO TURN HIMSELF OVER AND PUSH AZRAEL OFF OF HIM! BOTH ELITISTS GET BACK TO THEIR FEET- BUT AZRAEL HITS A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! AZRAEL WITH TBE COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!! THR-
Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES KICKS OUT! Azrael gets back to his feet, and he just pushed the referee! This is not good, BUT GATES WITH A SUDDEN ROLLUP, IS IT ENOUGH TO PUT AZRAEL DOWN?
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!! THR-
James Peters: Kick out from Azrael and he quickly got up again while Gates is kneeling, SMALL BOOT TO HIS FACE BUT GATES FELL DOWN AGAIN, CAUSING AZRAEL TO MISS HIM! SHANE GATES GOT SUPERMAN POWERS, HE IS UP TO DELIVER A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT IT LOOKED SLOPPY AND NASTY AT THE SAME TIME!!!! Of course, the move will be sloppy mainly due to his movement getting limited after his legs got injured. However, I think it’s going to be a short injury. Gates went to the right side of the turnbuckle to relax while Azrael was recovering. Now, Azrael on one knee, Gates wanted to move but Mr. Jacobs came out of nowhere and pushed him, Azrael got him, CHOKESLAM! HE PINS SHANE GATES, MR. JACOBS IS CONFIDENT AS HE IS NODDING HIS HEAD UNSTOPPABLY WHILE ALSO SMILING!!! THIS IS IT!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!! THR-
Rich Russillo: ANOTHER. KICKOUT. How? Seriously, this is amazing. How can he survive this many times? Azrael went with another headlock to waste some time with Shane Gates, like always. He is going to the ropes but Shane Gates pushed him, Azrael went to the ropes and a Clothesline is done to Shane Gates, Shane Gates with a kip up but he failed to land perfectly so he just sits on one knee now!!!! Azrael looked at him, nodded at him and now Azrael also sits, taunting his opponent right now! This actually felt like a conversation between these two amazing wrestlers. Shane Gates is talking while Azrael is just nodding his head uncontrollably. Shane Gates started with an elbow! Azrael with his own! GATES WITH ANOTHER! AZRAEL WITH ANOTHER! SHANE LOOKING TO DELIVER THE LAST BLOW! AZRAEL HAD ENOUGH AND HE TRIED TO PUT ONE HAND IN FOR THE LAST BREATH BUT SHANE GATES IS HESITATING!!! SHANE GATES PUSHED AZRAEL’S HAND AND AZRAEL WITH A CHOP TO HIS HEAD! AZRAEL PREPARING HIMSELF FOR A POWERBOMB, GOT HIM UP, HURRICANRANA! AZRAEL GOT UP QUICKLY, SAME GOES TO HIS OPPONENT, GATES CAUGHT HIM, SPINEBUSTER AND SUPERKICK, IT’S KILLSHOT! HE WASN’T GOING TO WAIT ANY LONGER AND HE PREPARED HIS HAND FOR THE RECKONING, HOWEVER, HE IS GETTING AZRAEL TO THE TOP ROPE, THEY ARE BOTH UP THERE, SHANE GATES!!!!!! RECKONING FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!!!!! HE WENT FOR THE COVER, COULD THIS BE IT?!!!! MR. JACOBS IS TRYING HIS BEST TO INTERFERE!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. SHANE GATES!!!!!!
James Peters: IT WAS TOO LATE!!!! MR. JACOBS GOT THE REFEREE’S LEGS AND THE REFEREE LANDED OUTSIDE OF THE RING BUT THE THREE COUNT IS ALREADY MADE. To be fair, that was a pretty fast count but after a Top Rope Reckoning? I don’t think a slow count will even change the ending!
Rich Russillo: Mr. Jacobs can’t believe it at all. He is very shocked. Look at him right there! He sits in silence, and this can’t be good after what’s been going on with Azrael as of late. If you ask me, this loss might just make things even worse.
Persephone: In that case can we just move on to the next match? I don’t wanna look at this anymore.
(The referee raised Shane Gates’s hand as Mr. Jacobs is seen smacking his head while sitting at the steps. He is disappointed. Azrael was looking at him from behind. As Shane Gates went out of the ring, we are left with Mr. Jacobs and Azrael. Jacobs looks at Azrael, and while disappointed he also looks a bit scared seeing what the loss at Territorial Invasion already did to him.)
(Commercial for J. Cole’s Lewis Street singles featuring Andre Walker. The songs are over two months old but Andre just wanted an opportunity to talk about J. Cole.
(The camera transitions to the ring where Bella Braxton is standing by ready to introduce the next matchup for the evening. The virtual audience can be heard already buzzing in unison, anticipating what’s next.)
Bella Braxton: The following interbranded matchup is scheduled for ONE FALL!
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake blares through the P.A. system and the virtual audience gives a warm welcome to Sierra Bradford who enters onto the stage first followed closely by Harper Lee, The Realm. Both members are proudly wearing their Unified Tag Team gold around their waists as they are making their way down the ramp. Harper Lee is already talking to her partner who appears to be listening intently, no doubt reminding her who she’ll be sharing the ring with on this evening and what happened the week before on the last edition of Voltage.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…She resides in San Francisco, California…She weighs in at ONE HUNDRED FORTY ONE POUNDS…She’s accompanied by Harper Lee..REPRESENTING THE REALM…She’s one half of THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…’THE GIRL ON FIRE’…SIERRA!!!! BRADFORD!!!
James Peters: The Unified Tag Team Champions are here tonight on the gold brand, Rich! They’re looking great as well, especially since winning Unified Tag Team titles from The Grand Athletes at Territorial Invasion in that rather unruly and chaotic ladder match. But just last week they paid a visit to Voltage and both The Realm and Parental Advisory were taking a lot of verbal shots at each other before and after Parental Advisory’s matchup against the Grand Prix tandem of Terry Chambers and TLA, a match that went to the Corona Hombres, but after the match it was Harper and Sierra of The Realm that were laid out by a steel chair courtesy of Jesse Barlow after they had taken out Hannah Marin.
Rich Russillo: Right. And you can bet that’s not going to change tonight if The Realm mind themselves, I can assure you of that. Parental Advisory, I’m sure, didn’t enjoy being humiliated like that and being cost a victory. They’ll no doubt be looking for a measure of payback here tonight!
(Each member of The Realm are posing on opposite turnbuckles, continuing to rev up the virtual audience for the upcoming matchup. ‘Middle Fingers’ by Missio begins now as Korey Gaines pulls back the curtain and appears on stage. He’s flanked by Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin of Parental Advisory, looking confident and no doubt feeling just as much about his chances of coming through with a much needed victory for his side as they get closer to officially matching up with The Realm for the Unified Tag Team Championship gold. All three are looking toward the ring, with Jesse and Hannah visibly taunting the members of The Realm as they approach the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent…He’s Oklahoma City, Oklahoma…He weighs in at ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY POUNDS…He’s accompanied by Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin…REPRESENTING PARENTAL ADVISORY…He’s known as ‘THE AERIAL BASTARD’…KOREY!!! GAINES!!!
James Peters: Korey Gaines would like nothing more than to get a victory here tonight, for himself and Parental Advisory. He took exception to a lot of the things that both Harper and Sierra said about him, and he no doubt will use that to fuel his fire tonight.
Rich Russillo: After coming up short last week against competition from the Grand Prix tournament who’s to say it really matters who ultimately ends up coming out of this bitter war with the Unified Tag Team gold? There are so many great teams that joined the field this year, whoever comes out of it as the winners will no doubt be a daunting task for any one of these sides to overcome!
Persephone: Ummm. Next match please.
(Harper and Sierra look on as each member of Parental Advisory makes their way into the ring. Jesse Barlow is already smirking at the sight of the two Realm members who were left lying last week, and judging by the mischievous expression he’s presenting at the moment there must be more in mind that he has for them as well. Upon entering the ring in their corner Parental Advisory poses in the ring much to the dismay of the virtual audience before finally ‘Middle Fingers’ dies down.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And there’s the bell, and the members for each side, the non participants in this match, are leaving the ring to the outside. We’ve got one half of the current Unified Tag Team Champions Sierra Bradford from the Showdown brand and one half of the current number one contenders to the titles in Korey Gaines, The Realm vs Parental Advisory. Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin are here at ringside as is Harper Lee for their respective sides looking on, but Parental Advisory are usually up to no good which we all saw at Territorial Invasion, and I’m sure that’s what Sierra Bradford can sense as well as you can see her telling the referee to watch out for Jesse and Hannah, and of course Jesse objecting at ringside as one might expect.
Rich Russillo: Try not stress over the little things, Sierra. Korey has a smirk on his face as the referee lets him know that he expects a clean match, and why? Why question someone from Parental Advisory, honestly? They’re here on Voltage to clean things up!
James Peters: Yeah, sure they are. Both competitors begin circling the ring, and hey. HEY! BARLOW JUST SWEPT THE LEG OF SIERRA BRADFORD FROM THE OUTSIDE AND KOREY GAINES OF COURSE DID THE REST AS HE JUST CHEAP SHOTTED BRADFORD FROM BEHIND AND THE REFEREE MISSED IT! KOREY GAINES ALL OVER SIERRA PUTTING BOOTS TO HER SIDE AND HEAD! HOW FAIR IS THAT!!??
Persephone: Stop getting so dramatic, James, she clearly had that coming after accusing them of shit before they even did anything! Dumb bitch!
James Peters: Harper Lee obviously taking up for her own tag team champion partner as she argues with Hannah at ringside!
Harper Lee: (off mic) I dare you to step up, Hannah, I will knock you silly, you try me!
Hannah Marin: (off mic) Stick to what you’re good at, Harper, being the poor excuse of a tag team partner! You suck and you know it, bitch!
Persephone: I couldn’t agree more with that statement!
James Peters: Korey Gaines putting a boot to the throat of Sierra in the corner, the referee has to get in there, and does. Korey getting in the referee’s face now and LOOK AT JESSE BARLOW AGAIN! HE’S CHOKING SIERRA AND THE REFEREE IS COMPLETELY MISSING IT! HARPER LEE DARTING AROUND THE CORNER CLEARLY FRUSTRATED OF WHAT’S TAKING PLACE!
Rich Russillo: Jesse and Hannah quickly retreat to the otherside of the ring getting out of dodge of Harper who’s chasing them off!
James Peters: Harper Lee checking on her partner, obviously concerned. Parental Advisory up to their tricks once again similar to what they did at Territorial Invasion, and this time it’s up to Sierra Bradford, who’s always been a fighter, to figure it out. Korey Gaines moving in on Sierra as she starts to recover in the corner, and now a kick sent to the midsection of Korey Gaines, but Korey shoots back with a kick and now sends Sierra Bradford off the ropes and now goes for the discus elbow smash but Sierra ducks it! Now arm drag by Sierra! Korey quickly gets back to his feet only to be sent back down from a running dropkick by Sierra! Korey back up again and once again he charges for Sierra and once again Sierra gets the best of him with another running dropkick! Korey holding his shoulder as he stumbles back to his feet, but Sierra is ready and she runs up the corner turnbuckles and backflips behind Korey! Korey Gaines turns right into another dropkick from Sierra Bradford, and Korey hits the canvas hard and this time rolls under the bottom rope to the outside where his backup Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin are.
Rich Rusillo: Sierra Bradford pumps her fist, showing her intensity as the virtual audience can be heard reacting positively in the background! Jesse, Hannah, and Korey seem to be conferencing now, and Sierra’s tag team partner Harper Lee is encouraging Sierra on the opposite side!
Persephone: What’s that blonde bitch getting so excited about? This match unfortunately looks like it’s nowhere near being over, and all this huddling crap isn’t helping matters. Any day now, you Parental Awareness nerds!
James Peters: The referee has reached a six count on the ring out count, and finally Korey Gaines is making his way back onto the ring apron as Sierra Bradford awaits inside the ring. Now both competitors are in and circling the ring once more, and now we get a tie up! Headlock takedown by Korey Gaines, and Sierra appears to be in a bit of trouble as she immediately reaches for the nearby ropes. Korey Gaines is trying to keep Sierra grounded after she just showed off the obvious quickness advantage she has over him. Now Sierra is trying to roll through, but Korey holds the headlock tight.
Rich Russillo: He’s looking to wear her down, James. Korey transitions into a modified chicken wing submission pulling her away from the ropes, but Sierra is keeping one arm freed for the moment and she’s using it to elbow Korey in the head, and it appears to be working. Korey is loosening his grip on the submission, and Sierra finally reverse rolls back to her feet showing her agility! Korey is back to his feet as well, and now they tie up again and it’s Korey using his strength advantage to force Sierra back into the ropes! Now a spinning kick followed up by a roundhouse kick from Korey Gaines! Sierra tried to block those shots near the head but those kicks still knocking her down to her knees!
James Peters: Korey runs right at Sierra, and the step up jumping knee connects on Sierra Bradford! Sierra falls back and Korey goes for the pin!
Rich Russillo: Not quite by Korey, had a feeling Sierra would be able to kick out that time! Korey has not done quite enough damage, but he’s definitely making her exert extra effort by making the pin this early in the match. Sound strategy by Gaines! Now he has Sierra locked in another headlock, but Sierra is already fighting out with elbows to the midsection! Korey releases Sierra and Sierra immediately bounces off the ropes and baseball slides through the legs of Korey avoiding the lariat by Korey! Korey goes for another roundhouse, but Sierra avoids the contact and sweeps Korey’s leg and he loses his footing and falls back to the canvas. Sierra takes a couple of steps back and now connects with a cannonball senton! Now Sierra lays back to hook the leg of Korey Gaines!
James Peters: And Korey Gaines kicks out, not even a two count there but as you alluded to a moment ago when it was Korey making the pin attempt this time it’s Sierra using her instincts to her advantage in making Korey exert more energy to kick out! Now Hannah attempts to get up on the apron, but the referee sees her! Hold on a minute! Now Jesse Barlow gets up on the apron behind the-HEY REF! TURN AROUND! BARLOW JUST DISTRACTED SIERRA BRADFORD AND HUNG HER OUT TO DRY ON THE TOP ROPE AND NOW KOREY GAINES TAKES ADVANTAGE WITH A STEP UP ENZIGIRI! HARPER LEE PULLS HANNAH MARIN OFF THE APRON ON THE OTHER END! HANNAH FALLS TO THE FLOOR! SHE GETS UP AND DOESN’T LOOK TOO HAPPY TO SEE HARPER!
Hannah Marin: (off mic) WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, HUH!!??
Persephone: Wow, what weak slap that was by the blonde bitch that orgasms to anime characters in her sleep! But this parental awareness nerd still went down! No wonder she’s the third wheel!
James Peters: HARPER LEE HAD SEEN ENOUGH! SHE JUST SLAPPED THE HELL OUT OF HANNAH MARIN! SHE WARNED HANNAH EARLIER ON! NOW SHE’S POUNDING AWAY AT THE GROUNDED MANAGER OF PARENTAL ADVISORY!! JESSE BARLOW IS NOW DARTING TO WHERE HARPER IS AND HARPER TAKES NOTICE AND STEPS AWAY!! BARLOW IS WALKING TOWARD HER, AND THEY BOTH APPEAR TO BE IN A VERY HEATED ARGUMENT ON THE OUTSIDE!! IN THE RING KOREY GAINES HAS SIERRA BRADFORD DRAPED ON THE MIDDLE ROPE! ROPE HUNG DDT BY KOREY GAINES! KOREY ROLLS SIERRA OVER, AND HE’S GOING TO STEAL THIS ONE!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA SHOOTS A SHOULDER OFF THE CANVAS! KOREY THOUGHT HE HAD THAT ONE! HE DOESN’T LOOK TOO HAPPY ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW! I DON’T BLAME HIM, I THOUGHT HE HAD HER!
James Peters: Sierra Bradford is a hell of a competitor, she’s going to fight you until the end. Her and Harper Lee have sure come a long way since they both debuted late last year around the same time, so you know she’s not going away so easily! Parental Advisory has tried to do everything to throw Sierra off her game but she’s hanging in there! Gaines brings Bradford back up to her feet but Sierra comes to life! Sierra with a couple of hard-hitting forearms that staggers Gaines back. Sierra bounces off the ropes and now she clotheslines him over the-Oh they both go over the top rope! Both competitors hit the floor right out in front of us!
Persephone: They’d better keep their distance and not get any closer than they already are, that’s all I got to say!
James Peters: Jesse is looking on just a few feet away from the action as is Harper Lee, in Harper’s case I’m sure she’s making sure Parental Advisory aside from Korey keeps enough distance, especially with what they’ve managed to do in just this match. They’ve used the numbers game to their favor at different points, but now it’s Korey and Sierra rising back to their feet. The referee is now at the count of four. Korey goes for a kick to the midsection and connects, and now he grabs Sierra Bradford by her hair and sends her crashing into the ring post! My God he sent her with such force! And of course Hannah and Jesse are cheering him on nearby as Korey rolls under the bottom rope to break the referee’s count. Harper Lee is checking on her tag team partner, Sierra is favoring her shoulder after the impact she took against the ring post.
Rich Russillo: Now Gaines grabs Sierra up once more and you can hear the heckles coming from the virtual audience who are making their emotions be felt, but Korey Gaines could care less it seems as he now sends Sierra crashing hard once again, this time into the barricade!
James Peters: Come on dammit, enough is enough! Get the woman in the ring, Korey, you’ve made your point! You’re a regular tough guy that’s gotta jump people from behind and use so many underhanded tactics to gain the advantage!
Rich Russillo: Looks like he heard you, James. Korey finally rolls Sierra back into the ring, she’s still holding her shoulder. Korey is on the apron just outside the ropes, and now he launches himself over the top rope where he delivers, it was almost a wreckingball leg drop! Korey going for the cover!
James Peters: And Sierra Bradford once again barely shoots the shoulder off the canvas! You can tell that shoulder is giving her some serious problems as she attempts to finish this match against Korey Gaines! Gaines grabs Sierra up by her hair and shoves her back into the corner, and now he’s lunges with a knee for Sierra’s midsection but Sierra moves out of the corner just in time and Korey crashes right into the turnbuckle and he comes out of it limping and favoring his knee right into RIGHTING WOES!! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK BY SIERRA BRADFORD! KOREY HURRIES AS FAST AS HE CAN TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET BUT HE BACKS HIMSELF BACK INTO THAT CORNER BUT HERE COMES SIERRA AGAIN! THIS TIME SHE CONNECTS WITH A FLYING KNEE TO THE FACE!! SHE CALLS IT THE SEEKING MISSILE! MULTIPLE SHOOT KICKS NOW BY SIERRA BRADFORD HAS KOREY GAINES OFF BALANCE!! SUPERKICK BY SIERRA NOW KNOCKS KOREY BACK INTO THE ROPES AND HE WALKS RIGHT INTO THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE BY SIERRA BRADFORD!! KOREY IS DOWN AND LOOKS TO BE OUT OF IT!! SIERRA STILL FAVORING THAT SHOULDER BUT HURRIES AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE COVER AND PERHAPS END THIS BOUT!
Persephone: Are you kidding me right now! Can’t this match be over already! There’s gotta be better matches for tonight than this!
James Peters: I’m not so sure about that, Seph. We’ve already seen quite a bit of non-stop scintillating action in this one as well as the action from earlier on in this program, and right now Sierra Bradford is bringing Korey Gaines up to his feet and now she sends him to the ropes and it looks like she was anticipating that he would bounce off the ropes but instead ‘The Aerial Bastard’ hangs on and now delivers a series of kicks repeatedly to the chest of Sierra! Sierra finally falls to her knees, and Korey delivers a superkick right to her face! He calls it the SUPERKICK PARTY!! SIERRA BRADFORD HIS DOWN AGAIN!! GAINES WITH ANOTHER COVER, TRYING TO END THIS ONE!
(Sierra places her leg on the bottom rope; Barlow shoves it off)
Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL!!?? DID YOU SEE THAT?
James Peters: I SURE AS HELL DID!! JESSE BARLOW REMOVED THE LEG OF SIERRA BRADFORD OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE JUST AS THE REFEREE’S HAND SLAPPED THE CANVAS THE THIRD TIME!! THERE’S SOME CONTROVERSY AS BARLOW IS HOLDING HIS HANDS UP INNOCENTLY!! HARPER LEE IS RIGHT THERE ARGUING AND TAKING UP FOR HER PARTNER ONCE MORE! THE REFEREE SUSPECTS SOMETHING BECAUSE IT WAS OBVIOUS THE BOTTOM ROPE WAS MOVING AT THE TIME THAT THE REFEREE LOOKED TO SEE JUST THAT, HE WAS IN THE BEST POSITION TO SEE IF THERE WOULD BE ANYTHING THAT WOULD STOP HIS COUNT!
(Harper Lee is yelling at the referee, explaining what happened and why the rope was moving just a moment ago, and the referee seems to buy it. He points a finger at Barlow and Hannah.)
Referee: (off mic) If either one of you get involved in this match again you’ll both be banned from ringside. This match continues, as far as I’m concerned!
Hannah Marin: (off mic) What!?
James Peters: THANK GOD! JUSTICE SERVED! THE REFEREE JUST SAVED THIS MATCH FROM ENDING IN WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN A TRAVESTY FROM MY POINT OF VIEW!!! AS KOREY GAINES WAS GOING FOR THE COVER IT WAS JESSE BARLOW ONCE AGAIN LOOKING TO GIVE HIS SIDE THE UPPERHAND, AND PERHAPS THE VICTORY BY REMOVING SIERRA BRADFORD’S LEG FROM THE BOTTOM ROPE TRYING TO STEAL THE VICTORY FOR PARENTAL ADVISORY! JESSE AND HANNAH ARE LIVID ON THE OUTSIDE OVER THE FINAL RULING! HARPER LEE IS QUITE THE OPPOSITE AND IS ALREADY SHOUTING ENCOURAGEMENT TO HER PARTNER WHO’S PULLING HERSELF UP USING THE ROPES STILL FAVORING THAT SHOULDER!
Persephone: Nobody hates that referee more than me right now! This match could have finally been over! UGH!! DAMN!!!
Rich Russillo: Sierra Bradford is still alive! But she needs to turn around because Korey Gaines is no doubt even more determined to knock her lights out now, James!
James Peters: Sierra does just that and just as you predicted here comes Gaines, but Sierra is able to react in time. She goes for the drop toe hold, and now VINEYARD!!! THE HEEL HOOK!!! SIERRA BRADFORD IS TRYING TO SUBMIT KOREY GAINES!! KOREY YELLS OUT IN OBVIOUS AGONY BUT HE’S CLOSE TO THE ROPES AND DESPERATELY INCHES TO THEM AND IT’S ENOUGH FOR THE REFEREE TO HAVE SIERRA BREAK THE SUBMISSION LOCK!!! Sierra had the right idea but to his credit Korey didn’t panic in that situation and was able to get to the ropes! Korey rolling under the bottom rope and is now pulling himself up to a vertical base on the outside apron. Sierra moves in on Korey but Korey with a blatant thumb to the eye, and the referee lets him know about it! Sierra is staggered a bit and this is enough to give Korey time! He’s going for the 720!! BUT THE CORKSCREW SPRINGBOARD PART OF THE MOVE WENT AWRY BECAUSE SIERRA BRADFORD CAME TO JUST IN TIME TO MEET GAINES WITH A HUGE FOREARM TO THE FACE!! GAINES IS ROCKED ON THE OUTSIDE BUT HE’S STILL HANGING ON TO THE TOP ROPE! SIERRA SHOWS HER STRENGTH BY HOISTING KOREY ON HER SHOULDERS!! SHE’S GOING FOR IT!!! SHE’S GOING FOR WHAT SHE CALLS MISERY BUSINESS!!! THE FIREMANS CARRY STUNNER CONNECTS!! IT WAS DEVASTATING AND THE VIRTUAL AUDIENCE IS BUZZING!! SIERRA HAS IT! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!! BUT WAIT…THE REFEREE WAS ACCIDENTLY KNOCKED DOWN!! THIS ONE SHOULD BE OVER!!
Rich Russillo: Should be but the referee was in the wrong position at the wrong time, and when Sierra swung Korey around to finish the move Korey’s boot caught the referee in the head! Anything can happen now! Sierra, she can hardly believe it!
James Peters: Now Jesse Barlow gets up on the apron and Sierra quickly rises to her feet and rushes to strike a forearm at Barlow, BUT JESSE STRIKES FIRST WITH GG2EZ!!! HARD STIFF PUNCH TO THE FACE BY BARLOW CONNECTS! HANNAH MARIN AND JESSE BARLOW ARE NOW IN THE RING! BUT SO IS HARPER LEE WHO JUST SLID UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE! SHE GOES RIGHT FOR HANNAH! NEVERMORE!!! HIGH KNEE TO THE HEAD TO THE ONCOMING HARPER LEE!
Rich Russillo: OUCH! GOOD-NIGHT! THAT KNEE HAD TO OF KNOCKED HARPER LEE STRAIGHT INTO NEXT YEAR!!
James Peters: FOR THE SECOND WEEK IN A ROW THE PARENTAL ADVISORY HAVE LOOKED DOMINANT OVER THE REALM! NOW THEY’RE TRYING TO STEAL ONE HERE, AND THE REFEREE IS STILL DOWN! KOREY GAINES GRABS SIERRA BRADFORD UP FROM BEHIND AND LOCKS HER ARMS!! I DON’T LIKE THIS! SIERRA SEES JESSE YANKING HARPER LEE BY HER HAIR AND GIVING HER THE BAD MOUTH! HANNAH MARIN…SHE JUST PULLED OUT JESSE BARLOW’S PERSONAL FAVORITE…BRASS KNUCKLES! THE REALM ARE IN BIG TROUBLE RIGHT NOW!
Jesse Barlow: (off mic to Harper) You both make it too easy for us, now you’ll find out what it’s like to be humiliated before we take those precious tag team titles!
Hannah Marin: (off mic to Sierra) Nobody humiliates Parental Advisory, bitch! Any last regrets before I knock you and your partner the fuck out?
Persephone: Ewww! Gross! Don’t they fucking know we’re still in the middle of a pandemic!!??
James Peters: I DON’T THINK THAT SIERRA BRADFORD CARES BECAUSE SHE JUST SPIT DIRECTLY IN THE FACE OF HANNAH MARIN! HANNAH IS INCENSED!! SHE WINDS HER FIST WITH THE BRASS KNUCKS ON THEM UP AND STRIKES SIERRA!! NO!!! SIERRA BROKE FREE IN TIME AND HANNAH MARIN JUST STRUCK KOREY GAINES DIRECTLY IN THE HEAD WITH THE BRASS KNUCKS!! HANNAH’S EYES WIDEN, SHE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE’S PANICKED AND DROPS THE BRASS KNUCKS! AND A LOW BLOW!! HARPER LEE JUST LOW BLOWED JESSE BARLOW!! BARLOW FALLS TO HIS KNEES! HARPER LEE IS BACK UP!! SIERRA BRADFORD GRABS HANNAH UP AND HOISTS HER UP ON HER SHOULDERS!!! MISERY BUSINESS ON HANNAH MARIN!! PEACE SIGN BY HARPER LEE TO JESSE BARLOW! THE RUNNING FACEWASH CONNECTS! BOTH JESSE AND HANNAH HAVE ROLLED OUT OF THE RING TO THE OUTSIDE! SIERRA BRADFORD HURRIES UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! SHE WASTES NO TIME! SIERRA MIST! TOP ROPE DIVING MOONSAULT CONNECTS ON KOREY GAINES TO ADD AN EXCLAMATION POINT, AND I THINK THE REFEREE HAS FINALLY COMES TO…BARELY! SIERRA HOOKS THE LEG OF KOREY GAINES!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake begins to play again as the virtual audience can be heard cheering positively as Harper Lee is shown sliding back into the ring with both Unified Tag Team Championship belts, both her and Sierra embrace each other. On the outside near the rampway Hannah Marin is still distraught with herself over what just transpired and how her actions just cost Korey Gaines his match tonight, one that would’ve given him and Parental Advisory needed momentum as they prepare to take on the tag team champions very soon down the line. Jesse Barlow is shown scolding her on top of things as she continuously apologizes on her behalf.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by pinfall…SIERRA!!!! BRADFORD!!!!
Persephone: THANK. FUCKING. GOD. I thought I would never see the moment arrive! I ALWAYS KNOW WHEN YOU IDIOTS START YELLING YOUR LOUDEST INTO THE SET THAT THESE BOREFESTS ARE ABOUT TO END!
James Peters: If you’ll please excuse my broadcast partner Persephone and her obvious contempt for doing what she’s paid to do, we just witnessed a contest that went back and forth that ended in a bit of controversy here tonight!
Rich Russillo: A bit!!?? The referee was out for like an hour. They should’ve sent another one down immediately, but this wasn’t a main event match and no titles were on the line, but either way The Realm lucked out is what happened here tonight, James! Sierra Bradford comes on here from Showdown and steals one from Korey Gaines after Korey’s own teammate in Parental Advisory accidentally blasted him with a pair of Jesse Barlow’s brass knucks!
James Peters: And it looks like they’re not done because here comes Hannah and Jesse, they’re back for more! But Harper and Sierra, they were ready for them! SNAP DDT BY SIERRA ON HANNAH MARIN! JESSE BARLOW NOW FINDS HIMSELF OUTNUMBERED! HE TAKES A WILD SWING FOR SIERRA BUT SIERRA DODGES THE GG2EZ THIS TIME AND BOTH HER AND HARPER HOLD AN ARM OF JESSE BARLOW! THIS IS THEIR FINISH! THEY CALL IT MEETING IN THE MIDDLE, A MOVE THAT WOULD USUALLY INCLUDE THEIR FORMER REALM PARTNER BUT STILL THEIR BFF SARAH PRICE!! DOUBLE HIGH KNEE STRIKE STAGGERS BARLOW IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! BOTH HARPER AND SIERRA MEASURE BARLOW! BITTERSWEET ENDING! THE SUPERKICK THAT WOULD BE SARAH PRICE’S SPOT! I DON’T REALLY KNOW IF YOU CAN CALL IT A DEDICATION TO SARAH, THOUGH I’M SURE SHE WOULD APPRECIATE THE GESTURE, BUT AT ANY RATE JESSE BARLOW IS OUT! PARENTAL ADVISORY IS DOWN AND THE REALM, THE CURRENT UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS ARE STANDING TALL!
(‘NEVER TOO LATE TO DANCE’ by DREAMERS now starts up as The Realm hold up their Unified Tag Team Championship belts in the center of the ring as their music blares.)
Rich Russillo: You can definitely feel this rivalry starting to pick up, and I personally can’t wait to see how it all unfolds! Last week Jesse Barlow stood tall for Parental Advisory, making a big statement and they were certainly looking to do that here tonight but The Realm had other ideas.
James Peters: That they did, Rich, and this week they made an emphatic comeback after plenty of interference on the part of Parental Advisory from the outside to almost aid Korey Gaines to victory, and he gave it a hell of an effort but tonight Harper Lee did everything in her power to keep Parental Advisory from stealing this one, and in my mind, the right competitor won the match! Congratulations to your winner, one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Sierra Bradford!
(The last shot shows The Realm outside on the ramp helping one another along as Parental Advisory is still out of it inside the ring.)
(The scene at ringside fades out and after a few seconds pass, it reopens backstage. Voltage backstage reporter, Sofia Clarke, is standing by.)
Sofia Clarke: In addition to The Realm versus Parental Advisory for the Unified Tag Team Championships, another huge match was announced for Wicked Games last week. TLA got the match he has been asking for and will face Drake King in the fifth installment of the Voltage exclusive match, Barbed Wire Massacre. Tensions have been high between these two Elitists since Bloodsport, when Drake made his season debut and handed Malcolm Jones a huge win over TLA. Neither man has ever stepped foot inside of Barbed Wire Massacre before, and joining me to talk about that, as well as some other things, is Drake King. Drake, how are you this evening?
(The camera zooms out and Drake is seen standing next to Sofia. ‘The Last Messiah’ has a thoughtful look on his face and he’s dressed for his match later on tonight against the one and only Ms. Extreme.)
Drake King: Every day I wake up is a blessing, Sofia, and I’m grateful to be alive. Some people aren’t so lucky and my heart goes out to those families who are grieving, as well as to the people of the Louisiana coast who were affected by Hurricane Delta.
Sofia Clarke: :wow: Thank you for that, Drake. I am sure everyone will appreciate those sentiments.
Drake King: Of course. What kind of Messiah would I be if I did not show compassion and empathy towards my people? That’s why I’m here, Sofia. I’m here to lead everyone into a better tomorrow. I know that we can weather any and every storm that crosses our path. That’s why I’m not fretting about Wicked Games and the Barbed Wire Massacre match against TLA. Under normal circumstances, I would condemn this sort of match, but the way I see it at the moment, it’s a necessary evil. TLA is a cancer and he’s been allowed to grow and spread for far to long. That’s why I did what I did back at Bloodsport, and I thank Myself for that. While I wish I would have handled myself differently at Territorial Invasion so I could give Brother Malcolm and Sister Darcy what they deserved, I will not dwell on that. My focus is on the Grand Prix, where I will make up for the injustice I did to my sister, and on Wicked Games, where I will end TLA once and for all.
Sofia Clarke: If I may ask, where does this hatred for TLA even come from, Drake? You have a great record against him, and last season you were the one who dethroned him for the World Heavyweight Championship.
(Drake slowly nods his head, agreeing with Sofia.)
Drake King: One thing I have to admit is that my pursuit of the World Heavyweight Championship was selfish. I was consumed with gold and power, and being the face of Dynasty. I was being led by greed back then, HOWEVER, there is one good thing that came from all of that. I did dethrone TLA and got that championship out of the undeserving hands of a serial philanderer and sex trafficker. Under no circumstances should someone like TLA EVER have a chance to win championship gold. I blame Impact’s own incompetence for allowing such a horrific thing to happen, but I digress. That’s another conversation for another day, Sofia. My ultimate goal is to save this company from the future I saw, and part of that future involved TLA behind the broadcast table. I refuse to let that man linger here any longer, nor does he deserve any kind of platform to push his agendas on the rest of the world. Some people just aren’t worth saving and unfortunately, TLA is one of those people. I know it sounds harsh. I wish I could be forgiving when it comes to this man, but to be forgiving and to allow TLA to continue his reign of terror would be a disservice to this company.
???: Okay, puto.
(The look on Drake’s face sours, as Sofia’s eyes widen. Strolling into the picture is a grinning TLA.)
TLA: Ayo what do you mean… “those people”? :mjpls:
Drake King: You know what I mean.
TLA: I sure do homie. I know you been out here hatin’ somethin’ fierce. Got your salt levels at the highest levels I ever seen in a long ass time. Getting real sick of yo shit tho for real for real. Now you gotta callate and let Hermano TLA spit back at you for once.
Drake King: Hermano TL- No! You are not my brother not anything like Brother Malcolm!
TLA: Nah at this point we closer than hermanos out here we been thru all them wars and our next one finna make all them past ones look like minor skirmishes. We gonna throw down and there gonna be all kinds of barbed wire all kinds of blood n shit. Imma kill the shit outta this puto and make him eat all his words. Gonna show him exactly why ain’t nobody gonna get TLA out this business. Drake no different than any other politician who is lying on you promising some kind of better tomorrow or some shit if you do what he says give him power and take out his enemies. But anyone with half a mind up in they cabeza knows that he is full of shit and that shit gonna spill right on out when I tear him open with barbed wire ya heard? I mean imagine thinking that I am a cancer on this business or some shit like that. I am an innocent hombre who ain’t never did nothing. I been down to represent for this company and this business since day one and these people know that. Now you got Drake coming out here and thinking he can tell them otherwise with no proof. All he got is hate in he corazon. Drake looking to make up for his fuckups at Territorial Invasion but notice he ain’t calling himself a cancer. Nah unlike him I brought that W home for Voltage and brought that glory to this brand.
Drake King: Voltage would have been better off if you had lost honestly. I am going to make Voltage a better place and save it from you ever having another title reign.
TLA: Oh so that is what this is about dawg? Well y’all should have just said so. I mean I ain’t even going for the gold right now you know I be looking to settle my business first. You want a better future for Voltage but you know I ain’t give a fuck about shit that is so far off. Nah imma practical vato. I be looking to take Voltage as it is and make it the best present we got. I ain’t gotta make no promises and take people out cuz they ain’t fit my agenda. Nah we all here and we all gotta live and work together here. We got them differences we settle them in the ring. But you wrong about me holmes. You want to talk about how selfish you was back then back gunning for that gold. You want to say how I’m such a bad person and such a cancer to this industry but all you doing is repeating the same shit that I told you way back then. It’s sad that it took you this long to realize it but apparently you just had to get that culo handed to you by the Visual Pr-
Drake King: NO! DON’T SAY IT!
TLA: Que? Por que? Why is he yelling?
Sofia Clarke: He doesn’t like it when you say that name.
TLA: What name? You mean the Vis-
Drake King: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
TLA: Oh shit. This is gonna be fun.
Drake King: I am a compassionate and loving Messiah. But this animal… he is nothing but a savage torturer! You need to educate yourself. Start reading and become a productive member of society! Far away from EAW!
TLA: You know I like reading. I should really read some more. But you know when it comes to learning I am really more of a visu-
Drake King: No.
TLA: -al learner.
Drake King: Oh.
Drake King: I refuse to be toyed with like this.
TLA: Well you need to do some learning of your own cabron. Cuz you dumb as fuck. All you doing is making the shit you saw even more of a reality. It’s not my fault that you did so much drugs that you saw some kind of fucked up future where TLA was behind a broadcast table as a commentator or some shit. Now you want to take away my opportunity to get that gold and you want to take me out in a Barbed Wire Match and get me so badly hurt that imma have to retire and become a commentator. Bitch you some kind of special kind of idiota. You finna make the proph-
Drake King: :mjpls:
TLA: -ecy come true all on your own.
Drake King: That is where you are wrong TLA. After this match you are going to be hurt so badly by me that I will save EAW from you completely and I will make Voltage great once again without you. You won’t be able to even sit at the broadcast table because you will be in a hospital bed breathing through a tube. It is for the good of EAW and for the good of the future that this happens. I wish you would just submit your resignation papers already and we wouldn’t have to bother with this match but unfortunately you always have to choose to do things the hard way.
TLA: It’s true. I always gotta do shit the hard way don’t I? Just can’t let a good fight get away from me huh? Well how about I take your advice for once and make shit just a little bit easier.
Drake King: Well I am surprised that someone like you would actually take my advice. Maybe there is more ho-
(TLA suddenly removes a lead pipe from his hoodie and hits Drake King in the gut with it. Drake keels over to the ground as TLA presses his boot down on the back of his neck forcing him down on the ground. Sofia Clarke is shown dropping the microphone as she quickly runs out of the area to safety. TLA reaches over and picks up the microphone.)
TLA: Consider this a warning of what happens when you fuck with me puto. I hope you think twice before you decide to get involved in my match later with Darcy. Cuz yo… escúchame hijo de puta…
(TLA takes a look at the lead pipe in his hand and shoves it right in Drake King’s face.)
TLA: There’s a lot more where this came from.
(TLA wipes his boot on the back of Drake King’s hair before dropping the mic and taking his leave. Drake is shown slowly pulling himself up holding his gut in pain as he clenches his teeth in rage before the camera fades to black.)
(Camera cuts to a commercial featuring Myles singing a corrido to El Landerson’s lovely daughter. Let’s hope Minerva doesn’t see it!)
(Voltage returns from break and once again cuts to SOSA Henderson’s lockerroom. SOSA and Uncle Tony are still discussing Ahren’s video.)
SOSA Henderson: Is he serious with this shit? He does know how lucky he got at Bloodsport, right? He wins tonight and we won’t have that Candice bitch to worry about. I know damn well I’d beat Ahren’s ass. Who the fuck does he think he is?
Tony Henderson: He ain’t shit, Bullet. You the Champ, you ain’t got nothin’ to prove to him.
SOSA Henderson: Damn right I don’t. I ain’t keeping this title warm for nobody. This is mine, I earned this. I don’t give a fuck what they did in Brand Warfare, if anyone’s got something to prove it’s him. I’m the one that beat Rex for the title whether he likes it or not. If he wants to make it to me he still needs to win tonight, not like it’ll matter. Ahren wins tonight then I’m smokin’ him, simple.
Tony Henderson: Yeah, well it looks like he ain’t the only one that had something to say.
(SOSA and Tony look at the iPad and click on the next video. This time, it shows Minerva sitting in front of the same white backdrop Ahren was previously. After a few moments, Minerva finally begins speaking.)
Minerva: If there is anyone that deserves a shot at the EAW Championship against SOSA Henderson, there’s no doubt that it’s me. Ahren Fournier may have defeated SOSA Henderson this season, but we’ve seen how Ahren got the job done. I defeated SOSA Henderson while I was injured. The same man now holding the EAW Championship was defeated by me when I was able to compete at my best, so there is no doubt that I am capable of taking him out once again and winning the EAW Championship in the process. For months I was a World Champion, but while I was at the top, I only ruled over the Women’s division. Only one small part of this company belonged to me, and I want more. Ahren Fournier has held the EAW Championship before. He’s had his chance. He performed well at Territorial Invasion, but he did not “lead” us into victory, nor does that win alone make him most deserving of this opportunity. Terry Chambers competed for the EAW Championship before. You’ve had opportunities in the past, and your failure to capitalize on them does not make you most deserving either. I’ve been scratching and clawing to get here for two whole years. For two years I’ve had to fight for an opportunity like this, and this opportunity will not go to waste. No amount of respect I have for the two of you will stop me from winning this match and capturing the Championship I deserve. As for SOSA Henderson, your time is running out. Your first World Championship reign will not be a very long one, and it will be thanks to me. It’s a shame that you beat me to the punch and took away the one thing Rex McAllister had left in the EAW Championship. Now you’ve made yourself a target to someone you cannot defeat. You’ve already proven your inferiority to me, and when the time comes I will finally take the Championship I’ve never had the chance to fight for before, and soon the Gypsy Moth will finally be at the top. Not at the top of a single division, but at the top of this entire brand. History will repeat itself, only this time without Serena Bennett there to increase your chances. In the end, my rise to the top is inevitable. Terry, Ahren, try as you might, you will not be the one competing for the EAW Championship. SOSA Henderson, it’s only a matter of time. At Wicked Games a new EAW Champion will be crowned. Your streak of luck will soon end, and I will get what I’ve deserved for a very long time.
(The second video ends, and this time SOSA just sighs before shaking his head as some of the bitches reapproach him with more grapes.)
Tony Henderson: Nah Bullet, this ain’t it. So what if she beat you before? That don’t mean shit.
(SOSA just shakes his head and on that note, Voltage fades back to the ringside area.)
(Bella Braxton smiles into the camera.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(Before long ‘Enemy Strike’ plays up to a mixed reaction as Myles makes his way out to the center of the stage. He looks ready as he crouches down before getting up and spreading his arms out as he keeps them spread out as he makes his way over and down the ramp to the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Melbourne, Australia… weighing in at 227 pounds… THE MANIFEST… MYLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Last week on Voltage Myles got a win over Shane Gates and not only that made his intentions known more than anything else as he confronted the National Elite Champion, Sienna Jade and took her down with a sickening De Facto which left her splayed on the ground which has sure to sent shockwaves right to her.
James Peters: Well its clear Myles’ intentions are on the National Elite Championship for more things than one yet the one thing that he has to do is continue on as now he has a match against a prosperous elitist. Can Myles continue his streak of wins that he’s been accumulating as of late, don’t take him out of the running for a second.
Persephone: Stop dropping down to his knees in front of him. I know he might be abnormally strong but you know, he ain’t no Sexy Rexy. If he was though…
(Myles stops at the bottom of the ramp and brings his hands back down to his side as he circles around the ring before turning and making his way up the steel steps and onto the apron. He dusts his feet on the apron before entering into the ring and spreading his arms out once more. He looks around before turning around and making his way over to the corner as ‘Enemy Strike’ fades out as Myles awaits his opponent in the ring. Before long ‘The Phoenix by Fall Out Boy plays up as Donovan Duke makes his way to the stage. He looks hyped as he jumps around the stage before making his way to the center of it stand preparing it before posing and making his way down the ramp and to the ring with a determined yet cheerful look on his face as he does so)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Stillwater, Oklahoma… weighing in at 215 pounds… THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMEN… DONOVAN DUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Donovan Duke despite coming up short last week against Drake King he has managed to standout despite that and become a hair away from being close to beating a former World Champion and that in itself so early in his career is very impressive for him considering his odds heading into whatever EAW has coming for him.
James Peters: The common trend is simple, Donovan Duke will always come out like a million bucks despite the situation that he’s in. But now he has the chance to get one of the biggest wins in his career so far coming up against his opponent tonight. And I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens. Let’s see magic happen.
Persephone: Oh really?! Look how short he is! He’s motherfucking 4’5″ and you expect him to have a future. He can’t even reach up to the top shelf what makes you think he can reach for that brass ring?! Stupid…
(Donovan Duke makes his way down the ramp as he runs forward and slides into the ring as he jumps up to the top rope. He poses before spreading his arms out as he jumps off the top rope and circling around the ring before stopping in his corner and getting ready as he eyes his opponent as ‘The Phoenix fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: BUT DONOVAN POWERS OUT OF THE PIN ATTEMPT!

Persephone: Yikes Myles has bigger boobs than most of the locker room, you’d expect him to be strong but more than meets the eyes I guess.
Rich Russillo: Myles slowly getting up to his feet now but Donovan grabbing him by the head once more, as he sends him into an Irish whip to the corner as he’s backed up against it! DONOVAN RUNNING FORWARD AND LOOKING TO ATTACK! BUT WHATEVER DONOVAN WAS GOING TO DO MYLES MOVES OUT OF THE WAY OF IT AS BOTH OF THEM SWAP PLACES! MYLES WITH A KNIFE EDGED CHOP KEEPING HIM IN THE CORNER AS HE’S QUICKLY THROWING HIM DOWN TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! Donovan slowly recovering as Myles is beginning to climb up to the top rope as he does so, AS HE LAUNCHES OFF OF IT AND PLANTS DONOVAN DOWN WITH A TOP-ROPE METEORA IMPALING HIM BACK DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS!
James Peters: And Myles quickly mounting onto Donovan while he’s on the ground and taking advantage, AS HE BEGINS TO VICIOUSLY SLAM PUNCHES INTO HIS FACE! DONOVAN HOLDING UP HIS FOREARMS AND BLOCKING AS MUCH AS HE CAN, BUT HE PUSHES THE FACE OF MYLES AWAY AS BOTH OF THEM SEPERATE FROM ONE ANOTHER! Myles running forward as he’s going for a kick, BUT DONOVAN DUCKS UNDER IT AND GRABS THE LEG AND BRINGS IT DOWN TO THE GROUND! DONOVAN HAS THE ANKLE LOCK IN! MYLES IS SCREAMING IN AGONY AS HE’S TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE HOLD AS HE’S RESORTING TO HEADING TO THE ROPES! DONOVAN TRYING TO WRAP HIS LEG AROUND MYLES’ ANKLE BUT MYLES IS PERSISTENT AS HE TRIES TO TILT HIMSELF ONTO HIS BACK! MYLES IS ON HIS BACK! MYLES SENDS A KICK TO THE FACE OF DONOVAN FORCING THE ANKLE LOCK HOLD TO BREAK!
Rich Russillo: Myles bringing himself up to a sitting position, BUT DONOVAN STEPPING FORWARD AND STOMPING ON HIS LEG! Donovan has a target as he’s quickly bringing his leg up, AND SENDING A ELBOW DROP RIGHT DOWN ONTO IT AS MYLES GIVES A SCREAM! Donovan digging down into the leg, BUT MYLES KICKS HIM WITH HIS OTHER LEG RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!

James Peters: Myles moving to the turnbuckle and pulling himself up as he’s stumbling out of the corner. DONOVAN GOING FOR A SUPERKICK! BUT MYLES BLOCKS AND SPINS HIM AROUND! BUT DONOVAN QUICKLY FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH A ENZUIGIRI THAT TAKES BOTH OF THEM DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: Donovan is beginning to recover as Myles is bringing himself up as well, Donovan readying up! HE’S GOING FOR DEALER’S CHOICE! BUT MYLES DUCKS UNDER THE SPINNING BACKFIST AS HE GRABS DONOVAN AND LIFTS HIM UP OFF THE GROUND! HE’S GOING FOR WRATH OF PANDORA! BUT DONOVAN SLIPS OUT OF THE CANADIAN RACK DDT AND RETREATS BACKWARDS AS HE RUNS TO THE ROPES AS MYLES IS CAUGHT OFF GUARD AND TURNS AROUND TO TRY TO TURN HIS ATTENTION TO DONOVAN!

James Peters: Donovan is running to the ropes and back as Myles is coming back up to his feet, MYLES SPINNING AROUND AND GOING FOR A DISCUS LARIAT! BUT DONOVAN DUCKS UNDER AND GRABS MYLES FROM BEHIND, AS HE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A QUICK RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP SENDING HIM TO THE CANVAS! Donovan quickly transitioning, AS NOW HE HAS A CROSSFACE LOCKED IN! MYLES SCREAMING AS HE’S TRYING TO ESCAPE THE EXPANSIVE REPERTOIRE OF DONOVAN DUKE IN THIS MATCHUP AS MYLES IS BEGINNING TO CRAWL BUT DONOVAN HAS ALL HIS WEIGHT DOWN ON HIM!
Rich Russillo: MYLES IS FINDING IT HARD TO FIND SOME BREATHING ROOM AS HE’S SCRAMBLING HIS ARMS OUT JUST TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING TO ESCAPE OUT OF RIGHT HERE! BUT WAIT! MYLES IS BEGINNING TO SHIFT HIMSELF! HE SENDS DONOVAN INTO A BACKSLIDE PIN!
James Peters: NARROW KICK OUT BY DONOVAN AS MYLES PUSHES HIM AWAY! Donovan is recovering as he’s up to a knee, BUT MYLES WITH A BICYCLE KICK TO HIS HEAD SENDING HIM BACK DOWN! Donovan beginning to crawl as he’s continuing to fight and grab the ropes, BUT MYLES SENDS A BOOT TOWARDS HIS HEAD SENDING HIM BACK DOWN FLAT! Myles taking advantage of this now as he’s grabbing him by the head and bringing him up to his feet, BUT DONOVAN WITH A BIG FOREARM TO HIS FACE TAKING HIM OFFGUARD! Myles beginning to lose the offense as Donovan is bringing the fight to Myles!
Rich Russillo: MYLES GOING FOR A RUNNING LARIAT! BUT DONOVAN DUCKS UNDER IT AND KICKS MYLES FROM BEHIND TOWARDS THE KNEECAP! Myles has already had his leg targeted a few times during this matchup as Donovan I think is coming to see that as he’s grabbing the leg, AND SNAPPING IT DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A QUICK DRAGONSCREW! Donovan grabbing the leg again, BUT MYLES COMING UP AND SENDING A FOREARM TO HIS FACE TRYING TO SEPERATE HIM AWAY FROM HIMSELF! Myles getting back up to his feet as Donovan is grabbing the ropes, MYLES RUNS TOWARDS MYLES BUT DONOVAN GRABS HIM AND LIFTS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! Donovan turning around to face Myles, BUT MYLES WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZUIGIRI TO HIS FACE!
James Peters: Donovan sent backwards as it’s Myles that’s beginning to climb up to the top rope from the apron as Donovan doesn’t see! BUT DONOVAN MOVES FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO HIS FACE! Myles is dazed as Donovan is joining him up on the top and if we know anything from prior knowledge, this isn’t going to be pleasant for either of them. Myles beginning to fight back with punches aimed towards Donovan as he seemed to be backed up at the moment, seconds away from falling off the top! BUT DONOVAN QUICKLY STEPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS HE CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TO HIS FACE! Myles is out of it as Donovan is grabbing him this can’t he good can it?!
Rich Russillo: AVALANCHE HURRICANRANA! MYLES LAUNCHED OFF THE TOP ROPE BY DONOVAN AS HE SENDS HIM TO THE GROUND WITH ABSOLUTE IMPACT! HE REALIZES THIS AS HE’S GOING FOR THE PIN NOW! COILD THIS BE IT!
James Peters: AND IT’S A CLOSE PIN ATTEMPT AGAIN AS MYLES KICKS OUT OF THE ATTEMPT! Donovan grabbing the ropes as he’s going to take advantage of what he has in front of him as he’s leaning back in the corner. Myles is back up to his feet as Donovan is moving towards him, BUT MYLES WITH A SPINNING BOOT TO DONOVAN’S GUT AS HE MOVES BACK AGAIN! Donovan stepping backwards, AS HE GOES FOR A SUPERKICK AS HE ATTEMPTS TO RECOVER! BUT MYLES CATCHES THE FOOT! DONOVAN ATTEMPTING A ENZUIGIRI! BUT MYLES DUCKING UNDER IT AS DONOVAN CONNRCTS WITH THE AIR AS HE KEEPS AHOLD OF THE LEGS AND TRANSITIONS! AS HE’S GOING FOR THE SHARPSHOOTER!
Persephone: Ain’t I supposed to be saying something? You know sometimes I forget to commentate, gosh what a bore. You know what would spice this up? A little bit more blood if you ask me, YEAH!
Rich Russillo: We didn’t ask you-
Persephone: Maybe a severe injury, yeah! VOLTAGE!
Rich Russillo: Ok then… MYLES HAS THE SHARPSHOOTER LOCKED IN AS DONOVAN COULD NEARLY BE SNAPPED IN HALF IN THIS HOLD! DONOVAN BEGINNING TO CRAWL LIKE HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT AS MYLES HAS DROPPED ALL HIS WEIGHT TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT HE DONOVAN DOESN’T MAKE IT OUT OF THIS AS HE CONTINUES TO CRAWL TO THE ROPES! HE’S FINGERTIPS AWAY BUT A PART OF ME IS BEGINNING TO THINK THAT HE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SUSTAIN FOR THAT LONG!
James Peters: BUT IT’S DONOVAN THAT GRABS THE ROPES! MYLES LOOKING IN SHOCK AS THE REF IS TRYING TO TELL HIM THAT DONOVAN HAS AHOLD OF THE ROPES AND THAT THIS MATCH IS GOING TO CONTINUE ON! Myles is getting up to his feet as it is becoming apparent that he is at his wits end with the persistent Donovan Duke as he’s beginning to get up to his feet using the ropes for support as he’s in a world of pain. But look at Myles stalking him, waiting for that moment to strike on his prey and possibly take him out of commission! MYLES GOING FOR A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!
Rich Russillo: DEALER’S CHOICE! OH MY GOD! DONOVAN DUCKS UNDER THE KNEE AND CONNECTS WITH THE SPINNING BACK FIST TO THE BACK OF MYLES’ HEAD SENDING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND! DONOVAN SEEING THAT HE HAS MYLES DOWN ON THE GROUND AS HE’S ROLLING HIM ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKING THE LEGS! ONE OF THEM FINALLY MANAGING TO HIT ONE OF THEIR BIG MOVES IN THEIR REPERTOIRE AS WITH THAT WE MIGHT SEE A END!
James Peters: MYLES BARELY KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! DONOVAN IS IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK AS HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HE WAS A HAIR AWAY FROM GETTING THE WIN ON MYLES AS DONOVAN IS NOW GETTING UP TO HIS FEET! It’s becoming clear that the desperation is beginning to kick in for the both of these competitors now as Myles doesn’t know where he is getting up to his feet! I don’t think he’s ready for it either! ROYAL FLUSH!
Rich Russillo: BUT MYLES SPINS AROUND WITH A DESPERATION SPINNING HEEL KICK SENDING DONOVAN DOWN TO THE GROUND AND MYLES ONTO A KNEE! DONOVAN UNABLE TO FINISH IT OFF AS MYLES CONTINUES TO FIGHT HIM OFF! Myles bringing Donovan up to his feet now, MYLES GOING FOR RAPID CHEST STRIKES! THEN INTO A CHEST KICK!

James Peters: BUT DONOVAN PUSHES AWAY FROM THE KNEELIFT AS HE’S BEHIND MYLES! HE’S GRABBING MYLES NOW AND RUNNING WITH HIM! OH MY GOD! DOUBLE DOWN! TORNADO DDT CONNECTS AS DONOVAN ISN’T DONE GETTING BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HE’S SENDING MYLES TO THE ROPES AND BACK NOW, ANOTHER DEALER’S CHOICE! SPINNING BACKFIST!
Rich Russillo: NO WAY! MYLES SLIPPING THROUGH AND USES THE ARM AS HE DROPS DONOVAN DOWN INTO THE DE FACTO! SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP SLAMS DONOVAN DOWN TO THE GROUND AS MYLES IS ROLLING THROUGH! PIN ATTEMPT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Enemy Strike’ plays up once more as Myles gets up to his feet in absolute pain all throughout his body. He leans against the ropes to the displeasure of the crowd as he looks around with a smirk on his face before pushing himself off and making his way to the center of the ring as he taps his wrist telling the Ref to raise his hand up in victory as he continues to celebrate his victory)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… MYLES!
James Peters: Myles picks up the win tonight! What a great paced match from the both of them as Donovan Duke led us to believe at points that he was going to get the win and really put us on edge just as he always did! A bright prosperous future for this young man if he continues like this because so far he’s managed to put up a fight with the majority of the most hard working elitists on the brand currently!
Rich Russillo: As for Myles he has another win under his belt as he continues to beat anyone standing in his way and by the looks of whatever happened last week. I’m sure the National Elite Champion, Sienna Jade is watching in interest at him tonight.
James Peters: Speaking of…
(Before long Myles takes notice to the figure on stage as Sienna Jade is seen with the National Elite Championship around her shoulder. She’s sarcastically clapping for him as both of them stare down one another as Sienna raises the National Elite Championship up in the air as Myles watches in anticipation as Voltage fades out to commercial break.)
(Corona beer commercial featuring the Corona Hombres, TLA and Terry Chambers. They’re both wearing masks throughout the commercial to prevent catching a different type of Corona.)
(Voltage returns and reopens back in SOSA’s lockerroom. SOSA and Uncle Tony are still musing over the three potential challengers for SOSA’s championship.)
SOSA Henderson: Of course they’re gonna hang their wins over my head. For all I care they can keep going, ‘cause like I said I’m walking into Wicked Games as Champion and walking out as Champion. If they can’t beat me a second time after not being able to shut the fuck up about it the first time they’re just gonna look stupid.
Tony Henderson: That’s right, don’t let ‘em get to you, nephew. You’re the Champ for a reason, you earned this shit no matter what anybody tells you.
SOSA Henderson: I ain’t finna trip over that shit man. If Minerva wins, she gonna suffer the same fate Rex did. Pretty poetic since she’s so upset I dethroned him before she got the chance. Guessing Terry’s up next then, this shit better be good.
(SOSA clicks on the third and last video, and as expected it is Terry Chambers seated in front of that same white backdrop from before. After a few moments he begins talking.)
Terry Chambers: I say it over and over. I’m not supposed to be here. Setback after setback, rough patch after rough patch, I shouldn’t be competing for an opportunity at the EAW Championship, but I am. I’m here because I don’t want to let these setbacks stop me from reaching the top. I’m not going to let anything get in the way of me winning my first ever World Championship in EAW. I’ve let it be known just how much stuff like what went down at Territorial Invasion gets to me. Coming so close to succeeding just to be taken out. It hurts, but very soon it won’t matter. Soon two of the people that succeeded without me will fall to me as I go on to compete for the EAW Championship against SOSA Henderson. I’m going to overcome all the setbacks I’ve faced in my career and work my way up to the top. I know I can defeat Minerva and Ahren Fournier. I’m not intimidated or worried about my chances at all. My last opportunity at a World Championship was back at King of Elite against Andrea Valentine and I came so close to doing it. I was this close to becoming EAW Champion but I failed that night. I failed to win the EAW Championship, and that’s something that won’t happen again. This opportunity means more to me than both Minerva and Ahren could possibly realize. This means everything to me. I need this match, and I know I have what it takes to do it. Neither of them are invincible, and no matter what it takes I will walk out of Voltage as the new number one contender. At Wicked Games, I’m going to finally become a World Champion. I’m finally going to prove everyone who’s ever doubted me wrong, so SOSA can continue to stay confident. If he doesn’t see me as a threat, that’s his own problem. His ego’s gonna come back to bite him, and when Wicked Games is said and done, I’ll be the reason SOSA Henderson’s first ever World Championship reign is cut short and mine begins. Unlike Ahren and Minerva I haven’t had the pleasure of beating SOSA earlier in the season, but that won’t play a factor in this match nor will it matter come Wicked Games. Whether it’s our first match ever or our thousandth, this match is different. This match means more than anything we could’ve done in the past, because this time the EAW Championship will be on the line. This is what I’ve been waiting for. It’s time for Terry Chambers to finally reach the top. It’s been a long, unforgiving road here, but finally it’s time. I’ll be looking forward to seeing you at Wicked Games SOSA, because this contendership match is mine.
(The final video ends, and SOSA looks back at Tony.)
SOSA Henderson: Ridiculous. You hear this shit? All three of them are fuckin’ delusional, imagine my first World Championship reign ending at Wicked Games of all places. The EAW Championship isn’t leaving my hands anytime soon so they really just need to give it up. They shoulda just joined Myles and challenged for the National Elite Championship, at least then they’d have a chance.
Tony Henderson: They just wasting their time if you ask me.
SOSA Henderson: They are wasting their time, but so did I actually listening to this shit.
(SOSA hands the iPad over to one of the bitches, and they walk out of the camera’s view. As they walk off, SOSA looks down at the EAW Championship and pats the front plate.)
SOSA Henderson: It doesn’t matter who I end up facing at Wicked Games, I ain’t losin’ this belt in my first ever EAW title defense. Since they still ain’t get the memo, I’mma send them a message via Kasey Kaos’ annihilation. Nobody can fuck with SOSA, and I’mma teach Kasey and whoever I have to face at Wicked Games that. This is SOSA appreciation month, and nobody is ruining this for me. Whoever wins that contendership match is just gonna have to have their World Championship dreams crushed, ‘cause there’s nothing that’s gonna stop me from defending this title. I’ve finally reached the top of this industry, and I plan to stay here for a very long time.
(As Tony and SOSA continue talking amongst themselves as they’re surrounded by the bitches, Voltage finally begins to fade away from SOSA’s locker room and from the backstage area.)
(Voltage returns to ringside.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Diva” by Beyoncé begins to play across the PA system and the crowd erupts in cheers.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 126 POUNDS… SHE IS ‘THE HOT COMMODITY’… CANDICE BLAIR!
(Candice walks out from behind the guerilla curtain and poses for the fans.)
James Peters: It was an impressive showing for Candice Blair last week as she took the Universal Women’s Champion, Serena Bennett, to her limits and nearly pulled off the upset.
Rich Russillo: Absolutely. Candice showed everyone why she is one to watch in EAW, and it wouldn’t shock me at all to see gold in her future.
(Candice is in the ring now, and after a moment, her music fades out. It’s replaced by “Unfuckwithabe” by Deez Nuts, and the virtual audience begins to boo.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 135 POUNDS… SHE IS THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… SIENNA JADE!!!
(Sienna walks on stage, already holding up her championship, posing for everyone watching at home.)
Persephone: Welp the match absolutely no one wanted was made officially earlier tonight. At Wicked Games, Sienna Jade will defend the National Elite Championship against Myles. Yawn.
Rich Russillo: :skip: That’s actually one hell of a match, kitten. Myles has all the talent in the world, and I don’t think anyone would be surprised if he actually is the one who takes that belt from Sienna.
(Sienna has gotten into the ring and is set for the match. The referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And here we go! Both women fly at one another and begin to jostle back and forth for positioning! It’s the National Elite Champion who manages to outmuscle Candice and she gets her pressed up against the ropes. The referee orders Sienna to break and she does, BUT SHE SLAPS CANDICE ACROSS THE FACE!
Rich Russillo: Candice is pissed! She pushes off the ropes and looks to hit Sienna with a clothesline, but Sienna manages to duck! Candice hits the brakes, whirls around, and she catches Sienna with a spinning heel kick! The champ falls against the ropes and Candice clotheslines Sienna over the top! That’s fun.
Persephone: Sienna crashes to the ground and I think Candice is going to go high risk! She’s climbing up top and now she’s perched on the top turnbuckle! Candice lies in wait as Sienna Jade gets to her feet… AND SHE FLIES! CROSSBODY OFF THE TOP ROPE TO SIENNA! BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN ON THE GROUND AND CANDICE IS THROWING HANDS!!!
James Peters: Candice was so close last week to becoming the Universal Women’s Champion and it seems like she’s come out tonight to prove a point!
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Well she proved a hell of a point last week against Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, and no doubt got inside of ‘The Steel Magnolia’s’ head.
Persephone: Totes, and it’s kind of hilarious.
James Peters: Sienna finally manages to throw Candice off and she scrambles to her feet! Sienna is a bit dazed, but nonetheless she rushes towards Candice, but Candice nearly decapitates Sienna with a massive lariat! Candice grabs Sienna by the hair, slams her face first off the hardest part of the ring, and rolls her back inside! Sienna forces herself up but Candice is on the apron… SUNSET FLIP INTO A PIN!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT BY SIENNA! Sienna rolls towards the ropes, and quickly latches on! The referee stops Candice from making a beeline towards the champ, and Sienna looks grateful to have a small reprieve. In the spirit of fairness, Candice backs up and yells at Sienna to get back up, and I’m not sure if the National Elite Champion prepared herself for the fight and the spirit of Candice Blair!
James Peters: It wouldn’t be the first time Sienna has underestimated an opponent, but one thing is for sure, Sienna always finds a way to adapt. Candice motions for Sienna to come at her, and now both are locked in a collar-and-elbow tie up. Neither woman really wants to give an inch, but Candice manages to force Sienna into the corner. Sienna does strike back with a knee to the gut, that allows her to reverse their positions, but Candice with a quick knife edged chop to the chest of Sienna catching her offguard! Sienna caught by surprise as now it’s Candice grabbing the arm of Sienna and sending her to the ropes, AND CANDICE LEAPS OFF THE GROUND GOING FOR A DROPKICK! But Sienna grabs the top rope to hold herself before she rebounds as nobody’s home for Candice!
Persephone: You know maybe if she did grab the ropes you know what you could’ve done… not go for the dropkick???
Rich Russillo: Candice back up now as she’s recovering quickly, AND SIENNA MOVING FORWARD AND KICKING CANDICE CAVING HER CHEST IN AND SENDING HER BACKWARDS! Candice falling down to a sitting position as she finds herself trying to recover, BUT SIENNA GOING FOR A SOCCER KICK TO HER FACE! BUT IT’S CANDICE GRABBING THE LEG JUST IN TIME BEFORE IT MAKES CONTACT WITH HER FACE! Sienna on one leg now as this is allowing Candice to get up to her feet as she’s in a bad position at the moment, CANDICE SWEEPING AT HER OTHER LEG AND TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! Sienna trying to push away but Candice grabbing the leg and wrapping her arms around in getting a better grip, AS SHE DROPS SIENNA’S LEG DOWN INTO A DDT!
James Peters: Candice is bringing the fight to Sienna as its become evident that she is beginning to slowly flip the switch as this match progresses. Sienna is grabbing her leg as Candice is awaiting her to get back up to her feet, AND IT’S CANDICE RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR A QUICK FOREARM SMASH! But Sienna managing to duck under as she’s grabbing the head of Candice and running with her, AS SHE SLAMS HER CHEST FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE TAKING HER DOWN! Candice falling down to a knee but it’s clear that Sienna isn’t settling for less than satisfactory as she grabs her by the hair, AND SLAMS HER HEAD DOWN ONTO ON THE GROUND AS IT WHIPS ONTO THE CANVAS!
Rich Russillo: Sienna dusting her hands off as she’s leaning against the ropes waiting for that right moment to continue the offense on Candice Blair as it’s clear the National Elite Champion wants to take her time. Candice is up onto a knee as Sienna is running towards her, BUT CANDICE EXECUTING JUST IN TIME AS SHE LAUNCHES OFF OF THE GROUND AND TAKES SIENNA DOWN WITH A QUICK SLING BLADE OUT OF NOWHERE! Sienna sitting up as she’s trying to recover as Candice is back up to her feet and moving forward to lock in a headlock!
James Peters: Sienna finding it hard to breath as she’s struggling to move around as she’s trying to find a way to recover out of the rest hold clearly. Sienna finding some ground as she’s bending her leg and planting her feet to the ground as she’s beginning to get up to her feet now! Candice is trying to keep the hold locked in as now Sienna is up to her feet, AS SHE SLAMS MULTIPLE ELBOWS INTO THE GUT OF CANDICE GETTING HER TO LOOSEN THE GRIP AROUND HER NECK! Candice forced to let go as Sienna grabs her, AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SNAPMARE! Sienna bracing herself as Candice is grabbing her head in pain, AS SIENNA LEAPS UP AND CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF SIENNA’S HEAD SENDING HER DOWN!
Rich Russillo: Candice back down to the ground as she’s grabbing her head yet still managing to get back up to her feet in time as she runs over to Sienna, BUT IT’S SIENNA THAT TAKES HER DOWN WITH A QUICK ARMDRAG! Sienna keeping ahold of the arm as it’s Candice that’s trying to get out, BUT SIENNA IS TEEING OFF AS SHE SLAMS STOMPS DOWN ONTO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS IN HER ATTACKS! The Ref moving forward and beginning to split them apart before anything else happens, BUT SIENNA STEPPING FORWARD AND LEAPING UP IN THE AIR AS SHE DROPS A KNEE ONTO CANDICE’S HEAD!
James Peters: Sienna showing her aggression in this matchup as she continues to stomp around the body of Candice, seemingly to make sure that she stays on the ground! Candice begins to roll away as Sienna is grabbing her by the arm and bringing her up to her feet, AS SHE GOES FOR A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! But Candice ducks under it as she slips from her grasp and runs to the ropes and back, AND TAKES THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION DOWN WITH A BIG ROCKET KICK! Sienna grabbing her head as she’s flat down on the ground as Candice is beginning to climb up to the top rope and position herself as she flies off, AND LANDS WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT OF SIENNA TAKING ALL THE WIND OUT OF HER AND GETTING BACK UP TO HER FEET!
Persephone: You know, Sienna is the National Elite Champion for a reason isn’t she? Well I wouldn’t know but still… you wouldn’t expect it to be THAT hard for her to capitalize on any of the shit that she’s doing, would you think?
Rich Russillo: Well we’ve seen the repertoire of Candice Blair and on the outside it might not seem like much, but it doesn’t take much to realize that she’s someone that the opponent facing her should be taking seriously 100%, and that’s a mistake that Sienna Jade has had to learn from early in this match but she’s managed to get into the groove of things, I can say for certain right now that we’re in for a matchup tonight between these 2 competitors.
James Peters: Candice grabbing Sienna by the head and bringing her up to her feet, BUT IT’S SIENNA THAT CATCHES CANDICE WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Candice moves backward as Sienna pushes forward, BUT CANDICE IS ALREADY TAKING A LEAD GOING FOR A SPINNING HEEL KICK! BUT SIENNA DUCKS UNDER! Candice caught by surprise as she takes a whole 360, BUT SIENNA DOUBLES HER OVER AND GOES FOR A NORTHERN SUPLEX THAT PLANTS CANDICE DOWN TO THE GROUND! Candice in pain but Sienna is keeping the bridge as the Ref is sliding down and beginning to count the pin!
Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S CANDICE THAT KICKS OUT AND PUSHES AWAY FROM SIENNA! Both of them are up now as Sienna is just a bit quicker, AS SHE LEANS HER HEAD BACK AND CRACKS A SICK HEADBUTT TO THE HEAD OF CANDICE! Candice is sent backwards as it’s clear that has taken a lot out of her, but how is she still up on her feet?! CANDICE LEANS HER HEAD BACK AND CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT OF HER OWN AS SIENNA FALLS DOWN TO A KNEE COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED! Candice shaking off some pain as well as she grabs her, AND CONNECTS WITH A SIT-OUT JAWBREAKER!
James Peters: Sienna grabbing her jaw in pain as she’s grabbing the bottom ropes and sliding out of the ring. Creating distance between the both of them as Candice waits in the ring, Sienna jumping up onto the apron now! Candice quickly running forward but Sienna was faking it as she jumps back down to ringside, AND SWEEPS THE LEGS OF CANDICE TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! Sienna pushing Candice into the ring as she enters in as well and begins to circle around her prey.
Rich Russillo: Candice is crawling now as she’s already beginning to get to her feet and onto her knees, BUT SIENNA MOVING FORWARD WITH A AXE HANDLE THAT STUNS HER! Sienna grabbing Candice by the head and throwing her towards the ropes as Candice rebounds off of them and back, AS SIENNA LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND GOES FOR A STANDING SHINING WIZARD TO THE HEAD OF CANDICE! But it’s Candice that manages to duck under as she turns around as Sienna is dumbfounded, AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SPEAR! Candice hooking the leg and going for the pin!
James Peters: BUT SIENNA KICKS OUT! Candice back up to her feet as she’s trying to lock in a side headlock, but Sienna holding her hand out and pushing away, BUT CANDICE AIN’T WAITING AS SHE STOMPS ON THE FACE OF SIENNA AND BRINGS HER UP TO HER FEET! Sienna trying to fight back with weak forearms that try to fend Candice off, BUT CANDICE WITH A STIFF ELBOW TO HER FACE FORCING HER BACK! Candice running to the ropes as Sienna is up to her feet, AS SIENNA IS ATTEMPTING A RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO TAKE SIENNA DOWN!
Rich Russillo: BUT SIENNA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS CANDICE COLLIDES WITH THE ROPES TANGLING HER UP! Candice pushing away as she turns around to face Sienna, but Sienna is already grabbing her and unwinding her! OH! WITCHES HAMMER! RIPCORD ROLLING ELBOW TAKES CANDICE DOWN AS SIENNA IS GOING FOR THE PIN!
James Peters: BUT IT’S CANDICE THAT KICKS OUT OF THE PIN ATTEMPT! Sienna looking very frustrated at the moment as she’s using the ropes to get up, it was clear she was under the assumption that she could take Candice down right here, it is also become apparent that it’s also going to take much more than that! Sienna is climbing up to the top rope now as I think she’s looking to double up on the big moves as Candice is down at the center of the ring, Sienna on top! SHE’S GOING FOR STARSTRUCK!
Rich Russillo: NOT TODAY! CANDICE GETS HER KNEES UP BEFORE SIENNA CAN CONNECT AS SIENNA IS IN A WORLD OF PAIN RIGHT NOW!
Persephone: Hah, ok I’ll admit it. THAT was funny…
James Peters: What was funny about that?!
Rich Russillo: Sienna rolling around as she’s trying to get up to her feet as Candice is in the corner anxiously awaiting the moment! CANDICE IS RUNNING! BICYCLE KNEE TO THE HEAD OF SIENNA TAKES HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! CANDICE SAW A MOMENT AND SHE WAS WILLING TO TAKE IT AS CANDICE IS DOWN ON THE GROUND AND NOW SHE’S THE ONE HOOKING THE LEG AND GOING FOR THE PIN!
James Peters: BUT IT’S SIENNA THAT POWERS OUT OF THE PIN ATTEMPT THIS TIME! Candice sitting up as she’s grabbing at her hair and that seems to go both ways in this match both of them slowly beginning to boil up with frustration beyond any other at this point as Candice is pulling herself back up to her feet. She’s slowly bringing Sienna up as well as she begins to Irish whip her to the ropes, Candice has the momentum as she runs to the other side! CANDICE WITH A HANDSPRING, AND CATCHES SIENNA WITH A STUNNER!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! NO! SIENNA MANAGES TO PUSH AWAY BEFORE THE STUNNER CONNECTS AS SIENNA IS BEHIND CANDICE NOW! BUT CANDICE TURNS AROUND AND CONNECTS WITH A ENZUIGIRI AS SIENNA FALLS BACK ONTO THE ROPES! But Sienna bounces back, AND TAKES CANDICE DOWN WITH A LARIAT! Both of them are down but it’s for sure the fact that they’re still fighting!
James Peters: Of course and it’s just a matter of exactly that, the will to fight on continues to flow inside the both of them as now it’s Sienna that’s trying to crawl to the ropes, and it looks like that’s the next best option for Candice as well as she’s beginning to follow. Both of them are crawling up using the ropes and I think they’ve locked eyes with one another. They’ve gone through hell and back with one another and have tried to throw the kitchen sink at one another every single chance they get. Both of them want to come out with this win, but know damn well that only one of them can!
Persephone: Yawn, maybe we should anticipate the match ending instead of them having an intense moment then going through a back and forth and shit, I know it looks cool and all but don’t get your hopes up gosh.
Rich Russillo: AND HERE THEY GO! BOTH OF THEM RUNNING FORWARD AS THEY SEND PUNCHES TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS AS THEY TRADE A BACK AND FORTH! SIENNA AIMING FOR THE KNEECAP AS SHE KICKS CANDICE RIGHT THERE BEFORE GRABBING THE LEG OF CANDICE! BUT BEFORE SHE CAN LIFT IT UP CANDICE SENDS A FOREARM TO HER FACE SENDING HER BACK!
James Peters: Sienna stunned as she turns around, AND CANDICE GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! THAT SIENNA IS ABLE TO DUCK UNDER AS SHE GRABS AHOLD OF CANDICE AND GOES FOR A DDT! BUT CANDICE THROWS PUNCHES AT HER GUT FORCING HER TO BREAK THE HOLD AS SIENNA RETREATS OVER TO THE CORNER! Candice running forward, AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A CORNER SHINING WIZARD! Candice jumping off now as she pulls Sienna in, AND GOES FOR A LARIAT! BUT SIENNA SLIPS THROUGH AND CONNECTS WITH A NECKBREAKER TAKING CANDICE DOWN!
Rich Russillo: Candice sitting up as Sienna runs forward, AND GOES FOR A FORWARD SOMERSAULT CUTTER! BUT CANDICE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS SIENNA LANDS BACKFIRST ONTO THE CANVAS! Both of them have traded places now as Candice is bringing Sienna up, BUT SIENNA GRABS HER BY THE HEAD AND SENDS A KNEE TO HER GUT SENDING HER BACK! Sienna going for a sidekick, BUT CANDICE SLIDES UNDER AS SHE GRABS THE LEGS OF SIENNA AND PULLS THEM DOWN TO THE GROUND AS WELL!
James Peters: Sienna grabbing the leg now as she’s beginning to tear into it as she sends multiple stomps down right onto the back of it, BUT CANDICE WITH A KICK TO THE FACE OF SIENNA WITH HER OTHER LEG AS THIS ALLOWS HER TO GET UP! Sienna moving towards her, BUT CANDICE ISN’T HESITATING AS SHE GRABS SIENNA AND LEADS HER INTO A CHOKEHOLD STO WHICH TAKES HER DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: She better be lucky that title isn’t on the line because believe me… :sas2:
Rich Russillo: Candice is going for it as she stands on the side of Sienna facing away from her as she leaps into the air, STANDING MOONSAULT INTO DOUBLE KNEES! BUT SIENNA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS CANDICE FALLS DOWN TO HER KNEES! BUT SIENNA IS PULLING CANDICE UP! SHE’S GOING FOR THE CLAPBACK!
James Peters: BUT CANDICE IS AVOIDING THE GORY SPECIAL AS BEFORE SIENNA CAN GET A GOOD GRIP SHE DROPS DOWN TO THE CANVAS AND GRABS HER, SHE ROLLS SIENNA UP! CANDICE PINNING THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!
Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S SIENNA THAT POWERS OUT AND PUSHES AWAY AS NOW BOTH OF THEM ARE UP TO THEIR FEET! CANDICE GOING FOR ANOTHER ONE OF HER PATENTED BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO TAKE SIENNA DOWN TO THE CANVAS ONCE MORE! BUT SIENNA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS SHE PUSHES THE KNEE WHICH SPINS CANDICE AROUND AND ALLOWS SIENNA TO TAKE OPPORTUNITY AS SHE GRABS CANDICE FROM BEHIND! AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SWIFT BACK SUPLEX TO THE MAT!
James Peters: Candice slowly getting up as Sienna is beginning to crawl over to Candice taking her time, AS SHE RAKES THE BACK OF CANDICE! Sienna isn’t done as she grabs Candice and begins to execute something, SHE’S GOING FOR THE WITCHES HAMMER!
Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S CANDICE THAT DUCKS UNDER THE RIPCORD ROLLING ELBOW AS ONCE AGAIN SIENNA IS UNABLE TO CONNECT WITH IT! Candice turning around Sienna as Sienna is clueless, CANDICE WITH A SINGLE KNEE FACEBREAKER! Sienna falls down as she tries to find some sort of ground in this as Candice is on fire right now! CANDICE IS RUNNING FORWARD AS SIENNA IS UP! BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE!
James Peters: SIENNA IS TAKEN DOWN TO THE GROUND AS CANDICE IS LEANING AGAINST THE ROPES! SHE SEES THE OPPORTUNITY IN PLAY HERE AND I’LL BE SURE THAT SHE’S WILLING TO TAKE IT AS SIENNA IS UP ONTO HER FEET COMPLETELY UNKNOWING OF WHERE SHE IS! CANDY DESTROYER!
Rich Russillo: BUT SIENNA AVOIDS IT AS SHE PUSHES CANDICE TOWARDS THE ROPES-
(Before long Candice stiffens up as she absolutely crumbles down to the ground. The camera pans over to show none other than Kensingten Calhoun Astor pushing herself out from under the ring and slamming her purse filled to the brim with bricks right across the back of her as she stands up and dusts herself off as the Ref is completely unknowing of what just happened and confused. Sienna looks around and gives a shrug as she picks the lifeless Candice up off of her feet)
James Peters: RDG! BRIDGING FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX CONNECTS ONTO CANDICE AS SIENNA GOES FOR THE PIN! NOT LIKE THIS! PLEASE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Unfuckwithable’ plays up as Sienna Jade gets back up to her feet. She’s handed the National Elite Championship as she looks around with a chuckle raising the National Elite Championship in the air as she looks down at Candice before climbing up the middle rope and posing for a moment before beginning to celebrate)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… SIENNA JADE-
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD! KENSINGTEN ISN’T DONE! SOMETHING SNAPS INSIDE OF HER AS SHE SLIDES INTO THE RING AND THROWS THE PURSE RIGHT AT THE FACE OF CANDICE! CANDICE IS ALREADY HURT AS KENSINGTEN IS THROWING MULTIPLE PUNCHES INTO HER FACE MAKING SURE THAT SHE DOESN’T FORGET WHAT SHE’S DONE TO HER THE PAST FEW WEEKS!
James Peters: AND I DON’T THINK SHE’S DONE AS SHE’S BRINGING CANDICE UP! THE SOUTHERN SWAG SHOT! LEFT HAND KNOCKOUT PUNCH FOR GOOD MEASURE SENDS CANDICE DOWN TO THE GROUND AS SHE CAN DO NOTHING TO DEFEND HERSELF!
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is seen standing above Candice as she fans herself for a moment before shaking her head as she rolls out of the ring and makes her way up the ramp, eyeing the knocked out Candice Blair as that’s the last thing seen as Voltage transitions to elsewhere)
(Commercial for EAW 2k21, still coming out soon.)
(“Gangsta” — New Year’s Day starts to play as Ms. Extreme begins to walk out, focused in the ring, looking out at the virtual crowd before sliding in and climbing the middle rope, pointing out to the fans.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first from Calabasas, CA.! Weighing in at 135 pounds! She is “THE RED QUEEN” MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!
James Peters: We have seen Ms. Extreme go to hell and back, she is a woman that had shown just how tough she is, and we all know that tonight she wants to prove it again.
Rich Russillo: Territorial Invasion saw her burn, and still continue to fight. Last week we saw her defeat Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, this week it gets a bit tougher.
Persephone: I need to find a new object of my desire, maybe it will be Drake King.
James Peters: Seriously?
Persephone: Of course not.
(As “Gangsta” dies down it is replaced by ‘This is Your Life’ by The Dust Brothers & Tyler Durden. Drake King slowly comes out with his arms spread and a huge smile on his face, standing at the rampway looking at the virtual crowd ready to do a sermon.)
Bella Braxton: His opponent, hails from the Dead Sea in Israel! Weighing in at 225 pounds! He is “THE LAST MESSIAH” DRAKE KING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(As Drake hears his name, nodding he comes walking down to the ring slowly, getting to the apron and walking up the stairs, looking around before turning to his opponent, Ms. Extreme and nodding.)
James Peters: Drake King had a war with Donovan Duke, we also saw him lay out Malcolm Jones, he is all over the place.
Rich Russillo: Well, many are saying he was the reason behind Voltage’s loss at Territorial Invasion, so let’s see what happens here tonight.
Persephone: Can I say it again? Praise the Lord!
(Rich and James again both look over at Persephone who rolls her eyes. The referee checks on both competitors as Drake extends his hand out for a handshake. Ms. Extreme shakes her head no and slaps it away as Drake looks a bit shocked by the gesture but shrugs his shoulders as the referee calls for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(Drake King and Ms. Extreme circle the ring before locking up, Drake quickly kicks her in the gut and hooks Ms. Extreme for a quick snap suplex bit she rolls out and gets behind him slamming him down on the mat and slapping the back of his head a few times!)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme starting off this one strong and Drake is not happy about that at all. He gets back up to his feet and claps for Ms. Extreme.
Drake King: (Off Mic) A Wonderful start there, Sister Extreme, or would you prefer Sister Camille?
Ms. Extreme: (Off Mic) Shut the fuck up and just wrestle Drake!
Drake King: (Off Mic) Such harsh language, but I forgive you, Sister Extreme.
Persephone: He almost makes me want to go to church.
Rich Russillo: You would spontaneously combust if you went to church Persephone. Ms. Extreme is not amused by Drake’s gestures though he is trying to be a holy man here. They circle the ring and lock up again, this time Drake with the leverage and pushes Ms. Extreme back to the ropes, wow it is a clean break!
Drake: (Off Mic) Can I get a hug, Sister Extreme?
Ms. Extreme: (Off Mic) Blow it out of your holy ass!
Persephone: Ms. Extreme is such a bitch, I hate her.
Rich Russillo: Well, I am sure she won’t be able to sleep at night know this information, Persephone. They lock up this time Ms. Extreme with a hug hip toss! Drake is back on his feet, Lou Thesz Press! Ms. Extreme raining down the punches on Drake King! He is quickly rolling out of the ring, but Ms. Extreme is on hot pursuit! Drake slides back in and is caught with a huge clothesline, NO! Ms. Extreme ducks! Drake walks into a Belly To Back suplex! Ms. Extreme showing the power that made her dangerous! Drake is already in trouble early in the match, she grabs him into a Northern Lights Suplex! The Bridge with the pin!
James Peters: Drake King kicks out! He is trying to get his bearings, crawling to the corner but look at Ms. Extreme! She is trying to grab for him, NO! Drake with a handful of tights and pulls Camille into the turnbuckle face first! She is stunned! This is the opening Drake needed! He grabs her by the hair, whipping her into the turnbuckle, followed by a stiff elbow, and bulldog combination! Drake grabs Ms. Extreme, a whip into the ropes, with a huge back body drop, NO! Ms. Extreme lands on her feet! SAITO SUPLEX BY MS. EXTREME! SHE FOLDED HIM LIKE AN ACCORDIAN! Ms. Extreme gets right back up, this time waiting as Drake gets to his feet, Ms. Extreme runs at him with the spinning heel kick! That connected hard and Drake is down! Ms. Extreme is climbing to the top rope! She is waiting for Drake King to get up! Drake is up…. GLASS CEILING! THIS MATCH IS OVER ALREADY! MS. EXTREME FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE KICKS OUT!
Persephone: It is a miracle!
Rich Russillo: Will you stop, Persie! Drake King kicks out and Ms. Extreme looks shocked already early in this match! She picks up Drake, whipping him into the turnbuckle, she charges in, NO! Drake with a huge boot! Ms. Extreme stumbles back, DRAKE KING WITH A EXPLODER CLOTHESLINE! CAMILLE FLIPS IN THE AIR! That is how you change the momentum of a match! Drake King with a huge tide changer, and I think he did it on extinct! Drake King is now smiling, looking around before extending his arms out and bowing. Camille is getting back to her feet, Drake hooks her up, SCRIPTURE! THE JUMPING CUTTER JUST CONNECTED! DRAKE KING TELEGRAPHED THAT MOVE AND NOW HE ARROGANTLY COVERS MS. EXTREME!
James Peters: SHOULDER UP BY MS. EXTREME! DRAKE LOOKS A LITTLE SURPRISED BU HE IS SMILING, CLAPPING OVER MS. EXTREME….
Drake King: (Off Mic) WELL DONE SISTER EXTREME! WELL DONE! YOU HAVE THE HEART OF A LIONESS! THE LAST MESSIAH IS PROUD OF YOU! BLESS YOUR HEART!
James Peters: The nerve of this man! He is lifting up Camille by her long orange locks, COBRA CLUTCH! DRAKE HAS THE COBRA CLUTCH HOOKED AND HE IS TRYING TO END THIS NOW! MS. EXTREME IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND SHE CAN’T GET TO THE ROPES! SHE IS TRYING BUT SLOWLY FADING AND LOOK AT DRAKE KING! HE IS SMILING AS SHE DROPS TO ONE KNEE! HE COULD BE PUTTING HER TO ASLEEP AND WHAT AN EMBARRASSING WAY TO LOSE THIS MATCH!
Persephone: Stop, this bitch is known for passing out during matches like she has narcolepsy.
Rich Russillo: That means she doesn’t give up and Drake knows that it is why he has this Cobra Clutch cinched in quickly and look at her! She is starting to fade! Ms. Extreme she is… DOWN TO BOTH KNEES! THE REFEREE CAN CALL THIS AT ANY SECOND! HE LIFTS HER ARM….. ONE! IT DROPS! HE LIFTS HER ARM AGAIN…. TWO! IT DROPS! THIS IS IT! DRAKE KING IS GOING TO WIN THIS, SHE LOOKS UNCONSCIOUS! HERE COMES THE THIRD TRY….. YES! NO! NO! MS. EXTREME HODLS HER ARM UP AND NOW SHE IS STRUGGLING! SHE IS FIGHTING WITH ALL HER MIGHT! DRAKE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HE IS STILL HOLDING ON TO THE HOLD… NO! SNAPMARE OVER BY Ms. EXTREME AND DRAKE ROLLS THROUGH, CHARGING IN! KICK IN THE GUT! TWIST OF FATE ON DRAKE KING!
(The virtual crowd cheers as Ms. Extreme collapses, she tries to stand up slowly with the help of the ropes.)
James Peters: SHE IS GETTING TO HER FEET! MS. EXTREME IS UP AS DRAKE IS SLOWLY UP AS WELL! HE IS GETTING UP… METEORA! SHE HOOKS ONE LEG FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: DRAKE KICKS OUT! MS. EXTREME THOUGHT SHE HAD HIM! SHE IS BACK TO HER FEET! IT LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS HER SECOND WIND! GRABBING DRAKE KING AND WHIPPING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! SHE CHARGES IN WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK! MS. EXTREME CLIMBS THE SECOND ROPE AND SHE STARTS RAINING PUNCHES ON DRAKE KING!
(The Virtual Crowd cheers)
Persephone: Those are illegal fists!
Ruch Russillo: MS. EXTREME HAS HIM REELING RIGHT NOW! HE SLOWLY STUMBLES OUT OF THE ROPES AND MS. EXTREME WITH RED HANDED! NO!!!! DRAKE SPINS AROUND! A KICK TO THE GUT! ASCENSION! THE PEDIGREE HIT AND DRAKE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: AND MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT! SHE KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! DRAKE KING CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HE IS STARTING TO PUNCH MS. EXTREME REPEATEDLY AND THE REFEREE IS HAVING NONE OF IT! HE IS COUNTING DRAKE!
James Peters: DRAKE KING STOPS RIGHT BEFORE THE FIVE COUNT! PICKING UP MS. EXTREME BY THE HAIR, HE LIFTS HER UP OVER HIS SHOULDER! HE SITS MS. EXTREME ON THE TOP ROPE! DRAKE IS CLIMBING! WHAT IS HE DOING!? LOOKS LIKE HE IS SETTING HER UP FOR SUPERPLEX! HE HAS HER SET UP! TRYING TO BRING HER OVER! DRAKE IS PULLING! HE IS TRYING BUT MS. EXTREME IS HANGING ON! SHE IS …… HEADBUTT! DRAKE IS DAZED! ANOTHER HEADBUTT! DRAKE IS AGAIN DAZED, ONE MOR EHEADBUTT AND THAT DROPS DRAKE OFF THE TOP ROPE! HE CRASHED HARD ON THE MAT! WAIT, CAMILLE IS STANDING UP, A BIT SHAKY BUT SHE COULD END THIS RIGHT HERE! SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY MS. EXTREME AND THIS ONE IS OVER! SHE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: How the hell did he kick out of that!?
Rich Russillo: HE IS ONE OF THE BEST DAMN WRESTLERS IN THE EAW, THAT IS WHY! MS. EXTREME CANNOT BELIEVE IT!? SHE IS IN COMPLETE AND UTTER SHOCK RIGHT NOW! WHAT DOES SHE HAVE TO DO TO TAKE HIM OUT! MS. EXTREME IS BACK TO HER FEET AND SHE GOES FOR THE AVA LOCK! SHE HOOKS ON THE AVA LOCK! NO! DRAKE KING QUICKLY TURNS OVER AND REVERSES INTO A SMALL PACKAGE!
Persephone: WHY DO YOU HAVE TO KICK OUT!?
James Peters: MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT! SHE KICKS OUT! DRAKE GRABS HER AS SHE TRIES TO GET BACK TO HER FEET, A HIGH KNEE TO MS. EXTREME! THAT STUNNED HER! CROWN OF THORNS! DRAKE HIT THE CROWN OF THORNS! HE DOESN’T COVER HER, INSTEAD DRAKE IS WAITING FOR HER TO GET UP, CAMILLE BETTER BE CAREFUL! SHE IS GETTING ON HER FOURS, AND…. DRAKE WITH THE JUDGMENT DAY!!!!!! NO! CAMILLE GETS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND! DRAKE TURNS INTO A DDT! CAMILLE WITH THE DDT! IS SHE GOING FOR THE COVER! NO! MS. EXTREME SHE IS GOING FOR THE AVA LOCK AGAIN!
Rich Russillo: IF SHE HIT STHE AVA LOCK AND THIS ONE IS OVER! MS. EXTREME….. SHE LOCKS IT! MS. EXTREME HAS LOCKED AND DRAKE IS TRYING HARD TO BREAK IT BUT HE IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! MS. EXTREME IS ABOUT TO PULL OFF THE BIGGEST WIN OF HER SEASON 14 VOLTAGE! DRAKE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN AND HE IS TRYING TO DRAG TO THE ROPES BUT CAMILLE SCREAMS, PULLING BACK AND DRAKE CONTINUES TO FIGHT IT! HE MIGHT TAP OUT!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME IS ABOUT TO PULL OF A HUGE WIN! SHE WRENCHES BACK AND THE REFEREE IS WATCHING CLOSELY… HE…… WHAT THE HELL!?!?
(Suddenly the referee is dragged out of the ring and he disappears, in the background he is shown thrown into the barricade flipping over into the virtual screens. Ms. Extreme lets go of the hold when suddenly Shane Gates slides into the ring…)
James Peters: IT IS SHANE GATES! HE TOOK OUT THE REFEREE! HE TOOK OUT THE REFEREE! MS. EXTREME HAS NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON…. SHANE GATES WITH A HUGE BOOT ON MS. EXTREME! DRAKE KING IS ROLLING OUT OF THE RING! HE IS NOT STICKING AROUND!
Drake King: (Off Mic) Enjoy your harvest Brother Gates!
(Drake high tails it out of there as Gates picks up Ms. Extreme by the hair.)
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME IS FIGHTING BACK! SHE IS FIGHTING BACK! BUT GATES WOITH A HUGE KNEE TO HER GUT! SHE FALLS TO THE MATS BUT MS. EXTREME GETS BACK UP! FOREARM! AFTER FOREARM! GATES IS STUMBLING BACK! MS. EXTREME CHARGES IN BUT NO! SPINNING CLOTHESLINE BY GATES TAKE HER HEAD OFF! HE IS PICKING MS. EXTREME UP…. THE RECKONING! CAMILLE IS UNCONSCIOUS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS GATES STANDS OVER HER! LOOK AT HIS FACE! THE DISGUST! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE, WHY!?
James Peters: HE IS GRABBING A MIC!
Persephone: This should be interesting.
(Shane Gates grabs the mic, standing over a motionless Ms. Extreme.)
Shane Gates: DID THAT LOOK LIKE A JOKE TO YOU!? EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU IN THE BACK THINK THAT I AM THE PUNCHLINE!? FOR YEARS I HAVE BEEN A DOMINANT FORCE IN JAPAN, I TERRORIZED IT OVER THERE, I BECAME A BONAFIDE LEGEND DESTROYING OPPONENT AFTER OPPONENT AND THEN I CAME HERE FOR THE SAME RESPECT! BUT NO! OH NO, INSTEAD I HAVE TO ENDURE THE RIDICULE THAT I HEAR EVERY SINGLE WEEK ON THIS PROGRAM! I AM ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED AND DANGEROUS WRESTLERS IN THIS GODDAMN COMPANY AND NOTHING MAKES ME MORE SICK AND TIRED OF HAVING TO TAKE A BACKSEAT TO THE REST OF THE ROSTER AND NEVER REACH MY FULL POTENTIAL! I SHOULD BE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! I SHOULD HAVE BEEN NEW BREED OR PURE CHAMPION! I SHOULD HAVE BEEN A TAG TEAM CHAMPION AND INSTEAD I STAND AMONGST AN ENTIRE LOCKER ROOM THAT DOESN’T SEE ME AS ANY SORT OF THREAT!? ASK HER! ASK HER WHAT KIND OF THREAT I AM IF SHE WAS AWAKE TO ANSWER!
(Shane Gates squats down and lifts Ms. Extreme’s head by her hair, she slowly starts to stir as he picks her up and throws her over the top rope.)
Shane Gates: NOW THAT THE GARBAGE IS OUT OF MY RING, I CAN FINISH WHAT THE HELL I WAS SAYING! I WAS A STAR IN JAPAN! I WAS CONSIDERED A KING FOR WHAT I DID! I HEADLINED THE TOKYO DOME THREE TIMES; HOW MANY HAVE ANY OF YOU DONE THAT!? I AM AN 8 TIME WORLD CHAMPION WHO CAN SAY THEY HAVE DONE THAT!? I KNOW THAT I AM BETTER THAN THE RESULTS I AM GETTING AND IT ENDS NOW! EVERYONE WANTS TO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO ME AND CARE WHAT IS NEXT FOR SHANE GATES!? ASK MS. EXTREME RIGHT NOW OR THE REFEREE OR DAMN ADAM LUCAS WHO WAS SHIPPED TO DYNASTY! EVERYONE BACK THERE OR EVEN HER ON THE FLOOR, I AM PUTTING EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU ON NOTICE AND I LAY DOWN A CHALLENGE FOR REASONABLE DOUBT TO ANYONE THAT WANTS TO STEP IN THE RING WITH ME AND TEST ME!
(Shane Gates throws the mic down as he stands in the middle of the ring. “Overlord” by Suicide Silence starts to play throughout the arena as officials run down to check on the referee and Ms. Extreme. Shane Gates starts to back up some watching his handy work…)
James Peters: That is one scary man, and the statement was made! Shane Gates is tired of being overlooked, tired of being the butt of all jokes and ask Ms. Extreme later what she thinks of Gates now. He laid down the challenge, we will see who accepts.
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates always had the potential to be a major player in the EAW and I think Territorial Invasion in a loss was his breakout performance but like he said, this is a former world champion in Japan, now he is looking for that same success here in the EAW and I’m not betting against this man. We had a great match between Ms. Extreme and Drake King…. Wait we are getting the official announcement….
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen! The match has been thrown out and it is ruled a NO CONTEST!
(Shane Gates smirks before exiting the ring. Ms. Extreme is trying to fight off the officials and the EMT’s but they have surrounded her to make sure she is alright. Gates stands at the entranceway and smiles, glaring right at her.)
James Peters: Those are the eyes of a determined man.
Persephone: Yeah, he is ugly as sin too. We’ll be back.
(The scene fades from ringside and cuts backstage. Darcy May Morgan is ready for her match against TLA, which is next, and she’s just finished watching Drake’s match against Ms. Extreme. Unfortunately, Shane Gates disrupted the match and attacked Ms. Extreme, but what had Darcy concerned is the fact Drake just bailed. He didn’t stand up to Shane. He didn’t try and stop Shane. Instead, ‘The Messiah’ just rolled out of the ring and started making his exit. Darcy knew that Drake was going to try and come to ringside with her, especially after TLA hit him with a leadpipe earlier in the evening. She wasn’t in the mood to deal with that, and she certainly didn’t want to be the recipient of a cheap victory over the former World Heavyweight Champion. Darcy was looking for statement victories against big time opponents. She didn’t want any handouts.)
???: (off-screen) THAT’S your partner, huh? :mjlol: Muthafucka runnin’ from Shane Gates now. You got to be kidding me.
(Darcy can’t help but roll her eyes as Malcolm Jones walks up beside her. She’s clearly not in the mood for Malcolm tonight either, and he can’t help but laugh at Darcy and her predicament.)
Darcy May Morgan: Honestly, I don’t really want to talk about Drake right now. Everything is completely fucked. Drake is fucked.
Malcolm Jones: We been knew, but we both let it go too far.
Darcy May Morgan: The only thing I’m guilty of is trying to be a team player and get a win in War Games.
Malcolm Jones: Don’t act like a fuckin’ martyr. I put aside all my issues with the bozo to work with him, when I could have been doin’ literally anything else. Don’t be actin’ like you the only person who’s had to make some sacrifices and put some shit on hold, and is now suffering.
(A sigh escapes Darcy’s lips because deep down, she knows Malcolm is right.)
Darcy May Morgan: Well whatever. What’s done is done, and we can’t really go back. I don’t feel that great heading into Dynasty, but at least I know I can handle Jake Smith and Bronson Daniels on my own if I have too. They’re nothing.
Malcolm Jones: Jake Smith knows Drake King better than anyone, and the last thing you need to do is underestimate the ability of the Mile-High Club. You workin’ with an unstable fucking weirdo, and who’s to say he’s not gunna jump in the ring when you got one of them pinned and try to steal the win from you? What if you argue with him, and Jake or Bronson take advantage of that and roll you up? Huh? Then what? Fuck him, Darcy. Why not just drop his ass and save yourself the drama? We both know he can’t be trusted, and I don’t know how you ever expect to make it through a whole ass tournament with him by your side, spouting his bullshit, and lookin’ like a fool.
Darcy May Morgan: It’s really not that simple…
Malcolm Jones: :skip: The fuck you mean? It is. You drop him and go into business for yourself. Focus on when you’re going to cash in your briefcase and become the Universal Women’s Champion. House of Glass is coming up, and whether it’s Serena or Harlot… iight, so Serena… you need to seriously consider cashing in after that match.
Darcy May Morgan: Believe me, I have already thought about that. That would be a great chance for me, no doubt. However, right now I’m just focusing on my next match. I want this win against TLA more than anything because it’s a win I deserve. I have been working towards getting another big time victory, and there is no better person to beat than one of the most beloved members of the roster.
(Malcolm gives Darcy a pitying look, and she kind of takes offense to it.)
Darcy May Morgan: What’s that look for?
Malcolm Jones: Because you really think it’s going to be about you once you walk down to that ring. Drake gunna be right at your side, pushing his own agenda against TLA, and it’s all gunna happen at your expense tonight. You either getting fucked, or getting the type of win you’re afraid of getting because it does you no favors and just gives people another talking point to use against ya.
???: (off-screen) SISTER DARCY! BROTHER MALCOLM!
Malcolm Jones: Nawww, I’m out. I got a receipt for Drake the Redeemer, but I ain’t ready to be the redeemer quite yet.
(Malcolm exits, knowing that if he’s even around Drake for more than a few seconds, he is liable to snap and beat the shit out of him. There’s a time and a place for everything, and right now is not that time.)
(Drake steps up beside Darcy and he looks crushed that Malcolm would just walk away from him like that.)
Drake King: Why did he take off so fast?
Darcy May Morgan: Other things to do, I guess.
Drake King: Oh well. I hope Brother Malcolm accepts the Amazon gift card I sent him the other night as an apology. I just hate what happened between us, but at least the two of us can continue working towards your goals.
(Darcy gives Drake a tight smile.)
Darcy May Morgan: Right, so about that. I wo-
(Drake holds up his hands, a large smile crossing his face.)
Drake King: Say no more, Sister Darcy! It would be an honor to accompany you to the ring tonight and I agree that it’s the best way for me to scout my opponent. That’s clever thinking on your part.
Darcy May Morgan: I really don’t wa-
Drake King: Right? TLA is unstable and a criminal like that needs to be watched at all times. I promise to have your back tonight and lend a helping hand whenever it seems feasible.
Darcy May Morgan: :whoa: That is definitely no-
Drake King: Come, sister, it’s time to head to the ring. Your match is next :blessed:
(Drake takes Darcy by the arm and starts to lead her towards the guerilla curtain. Miss Cash in the Vault jerks her arm away but Drake is not at all deterred. They make it to the curtain and before they go to walk out, Drake turns to Darcy.)
Drake King: Darcy, it means alot to me that you trust me, and have decided to enter the Grand Prix with me. My past history with stables and tag teams isn’t that great, but I swear I have changed. You can trust me, and you can trust the fact I will do whatever I can to help you win our matches. I’m doing all of this for you.
(Drake flashes another incredible smile at Darcy before turning towards the curtains. Darcy is honestly speechless because she can’t help but feel something bad is going to happen.)
(Voltage fades into a promotional ad for Wicked Games.)
(Promotional ad for Wicked Games, this time featuring SOSA Henderson in an EAW Championship defense against an opponent soon to be revealed.)
(Inside the World 1 Theatre with the virtual crowd waiting in anticipation of what’s to come next, the camera comes around to Bella Braxton, who stands in the ring!)
Bella Braxton: The following singles contest is scheduled for-
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea plays, and Miss Cash in the Vault comes walking out with her briefcase in hand and Drake King trailing behind her, following after Darcy with applause!)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Kent, United Kingdom… weighing in at 135 pounds…. She is Miss Cash in the Vault…. “The Leading Lady” DAAARRRRCCCYYYY MAAAAAYYYY MORRRRGAAAAANNNN!!
Rich Russillo: Darcy comes to her first match since War Games, and it’s an interesting one at that, as she takes on her Grand Prix partner’s Wicked Games opponent, TLA, here one-on-one while Drake watches from ringside!
James Peters: Given their history, I expect things between TLA and Drake to certainly escalate in some way, shape, or form, but how it’ll impact this match, I can’t be sure! But Darcy doesn’t appear to be worried, whether that’s because of Drake or her own assuredness, who knows, but it’s not like it’s her drama to worry about.
Persephone: Or is it? Drake totally kicked the shit out of Malcolm and Darcy didn’t even know how to initially react; imagine if he does something that costs her tonight’s match. Honestly, it’d be the only thing interesting to happen anyway.
(Darcy enters the ring while Drake stays on the outside on the far side of the ring away from the entrance aisle. “Ambitionz Az a Ridah” by Tupac comes blaring into the World 1 Theatre and from the side entrance, TLA arrives in a lowrider with the sound of cheers being heard over the music.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… from Miami, Florida… weighing in at 210 pounds… TLA!!!!
James Peters: TLA was quick to make sure he got his shot at Drake King, and with the competition he faces tonight, sending that message through Darcy that he’s coming right for Drake’s head would only make that clearer! With Territorial Invasion coming to pass, the only thing between him and getting his hands on Drake in a match is time but we’re only a few short weeks away from that!
Rich Russillo: And what a match it’ll be! A Barbed Wire Massacre match featuring these two?! It’ll be something that no one is going to want to miss :wow:!!!! But how that impacts things tonight, leaves things up in the air for what kind of drama we could be getting!
(TLA has eventually come to enter the ring, standing across from Darcy while Drake looks on with an expression of revulsion; clearly, he’s not a fan of TLA. TLA gives the former World Champion an unimpressed look of his own, obviously knowing he’ll have to keep his guard up. Darcy snaps her fingers, calling for TLA’s attention just as the referee calls for the bell!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Darcy and TLA circle the ring with Darcy shouting out TLA that he needs to be completely focused on her, but that smirk on her face surely has to be a sign that she knows that will be difficult for TLA!
Rich Russillo: No doubt! And you can see that same expression being shared with her ally, Drake, who’s leaning onto the apron as he watches them go to lock up!
James Peters: TLA manages Darcy against the ropes in the tie-up, the referee and even Drake King calling for TLA to break so as to follow the rules- BUT TLA WITH A MODIFIED TAKEDOWN THAT SENDS DARCY ACROSS THE RING!
Rich Russillo: DARCY QUICKLY RISES TO HER FEET AFTER BOUNCING OFF THE MAT AND SKIDDING ACROSS THE CANVAS, BUT TLA’S ON HER WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! MISS CASH IN THE VAULT STUMBLES BACK INTO THE ROPES AND TLA FLINGS HER TO THE MAT WITH A SNAP SUPLEX!
James Peters: TLA FLOATS OVER TO END UP ON TOP OF DARCY AND LOOK AT HOW HE’S COMING DOWN ON HER FACE WITH THOSE RIGHT HANDS! HE’S GOT A HANDFUL OF HAIR AND DARCY’S SHOUTING FOR THE REFEREE TO DO SOMETHING AS TLA IS NO DOUBT TAKING THE TIME TO SEND A MESSAGE TO DRAKE!
Rich Russillo: He’s already thinking about Wicked Games, but while there’ll be anything goes in that Barbed Wire Massacre Match, he’s got to let up here as the referee gets to four in that count of five! TLA raises his hands to show he’ll comply but that’s just the opening Darcy needs as she manages to kick TLA in the face! And Sister Darcy’s actions come much to the delight of The Messiah!
Persephone: Do you think this is a match she’ll try to walk out of? She’s tried to do it before a while back, I’m hoping she’ll bless us again :wow:!!
James Peters: I don’t think Sister Darcy will be doing anything like that, especially if she can maintain control of the match! Defeating a former World Champion after the way things went at Territorial Invasion for Team Voltage is just the kind of thing she knows will instantly put her back on the right path; she won’t give something like that up so easily!
Rich Russillo: And now she’s got TLA in a headlock as she works to bring him to his feet, suddenly throwing her knee up right into his face as she has him doubled over! The former Specialists Champion striking with another knee and now a third! And now she throws him to the mat by his hair!
James Peters: Darcy comes down with a knee drop to the face, being sure that she put as much weight behind that as possible! Drake applauds her from outside the ring while watching on as she drags TLA towards the ropes, propping him up by his neck against the bottom rope!
Rich Russillo: AND DARCY COMES CRASHING DOWN ON ACROSS THE BACK OF HIS NECK WITH THAT GUILLOTINE-STYLED LEG DROP! TLA’S HEAD SNAPS BACK AND EVEN THE REFEREE HAS TO FLINCH AT THE SIGHT OF THAT, BUT DARCY’S DIRECTING HIM TO MAKE THE COUNT AS SHE’S GOT HIM PINNED!
James Peters: TLA gets his shoulder up- BUT DARCY STARTS GOING AFTER TLA’S EYES, TRYING TO SCRATCH AND DIG HER NAILS AT THEM! THE RING OFFICIAL IS ADVISING HER TO DISCONTINUE HER CURRENT ACTIONS AND SHE DOES- EXCEPT ONLY TO START CHOKING TLA!
Rich Russillo: TLA’S LEGS ARE FLAILING AS HE TRIES TO PRY DARCY’S HANDS FROM AROUND HIS NECK BUT IT’S NO USE! DARCY STARTS SLAMMING HIM UP AND DOWN, THE BACK OF TLA’S HEAD HITTING OFF THE MAT BEFORE DARCY SLAPS HIM ACROSS THE FACE UPON LETTING GO!
Persephone: I would’ve been more impressed with her getting herself disqualified but what else can be expected from the idiot literally wasting a shot like the one that comes with carrying that briefcase on a so-called “title” like the worthless Universal Women’s Championship? 🙄
James Peters: :skip: Wasting her shot? The Universal Women’s Championship is highly sought after in the women’s division!
Persephone: Yes, wasting it! She could be getting retribution for Rex and get the EAW World Championship from SOSA as soon as possible to keep him from defiling it any further, and then she can just hand it over to Rex so that everything’s back to being right in the world 😌
James Peters: That’s… an awful idea :wtf:
Rich Russillo: But what’s not being wasted is the advantage that Darcy has now, as she manages to suplex TLA in the direction of a corner of the ring! TLA ends up seated against the bottom turnbuckle and Darcy comes charging in, trying to take TLA’s face off with that running face wash kick!
James Peters: Darcy wastes no time going right into stomping down on TLA as much as she can, looking to wear him down here in the early going! And now she presses her boot just beneath his chin, working to keep TLA in vulnerable positions like this so that he can’t even get the chance to properly fight back!
Rich Russillo: And there’s Drake right there at the same corner watching on smugly, the referee having to warn him to get back! But Drake assures that he’s simply spectating, though surely enjoying more than anyone the sight of the beating that TLA’s taking right now!
James Peters: The referee’s hoping to maintain the order of this match, as he has to know that it only takes one wrong action to send this whole thing spiraling! He turns his attention back to Darcy, warning her about the illegal choke-
Rich Russillo: But TLA grabs her ankle and stops the absolute assault he was taking to his face! TLA manages to bring himself to his feet with the help of leaning back into the turnbuckles and Darcy’s anxiously hopping on one foot, trying to swing at TLA but he’s well out of reach!
James Peters: Darcy’s pleading with TLA now to let her leg down but TLA isn’t hearing it! He shakes his head and right about now, being associated with Drake isn’t about to do Darcy any favors- TLA YANKS HER LEG AND THROWS DARCY DOWN INTO A SPLIT-LEGGED POSITION!
Rich Russillo: Can you do that, Persephone? 👀
Persephone: Mind your business! One of these days you’re gonna learn to stay the hell out of mine and Rex’s marriage; we’re happily committed to one another!
James Peters: I’m thinking you need to be a whole other type of committed- AND NOW TLA WITH A QUICK DROPKICK TO LAY HER OUT ON THE MAT BEFORE DARCY CAN EVEN REACT! TLA SCRAMBLES OVER TO GET HIS HANDS ON DARCY AND FOLLOWS UP WITH A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: DARCY CRASHES TO THE MAT AND TURNS OVER HOLDING THE BACK OF HER HEAD; THAT WAS AN ATROCIOUS LANDING JUST NOW! AND TLA COMES CHARGING AT HER WITH A HURRICANRANA AS SHE’S ON A KNEE, SPIKING HER HEAD RIGHT ON THE MAT!
James Peters: TLA WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD TO DRIVE HER FACE AGAINST THE MAT! AND HE SOMERSAULTS FORWARD TO TAKE OFF INTO THE ROPES AND COMES SPRINGING BACK OFF THE ROPES TO KNOCK DARCY RIGHT OUT THE RING WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: Drake King rushes over from around the side of the ring and looks to tend to Darcy, making sure she’s alright while trying to help her up to her feet-
James Peters: TLA LAUNCHES HIMSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CORKSCREW PLANCHA AND HE TAKES DARCY TO THE GROUND! DRAKE KING JUST BARELY ESCAPES BUT HE MANAGED TO SCURRY AWAY IN TIME NONETHELESS, AND NOW HE’S ARGUING WITH TLA FOR TRYING TO TAKE HIM OUT!
Rich Russillo: TLA sounds more annoyed that Drake got out the way; he was no doubt looking to make sure he caught Drake in the chaos of the attack!
TLA: (off-mic) You got lucky just now, but it ain’t gonna be the same for Wicked Games! Gonna have you feeling worse than you did after Pain for Pride!
Persephone: Drake instantly covers his ears and turns away in a hurry, not wanting to hear anything else TLA has to say! And I’m starting to think I should do the same when it comes to this match; it’s gone on for too long! TLA unfortunately wants to torture me by continuing this, pulling Darcy off the ground and rolling her back into the ring. Don’t these people know a count-out win is just as good?
Rich Russillo: :mjpls: As if TLA is gonna settle for anything like that when he wants to make it clear that he’s not fucking around when it comes to Drake. He jumped at the chance to be the one to get his hands on Drake first, and right now, this is one of his best opportunities to show he’s as serious as ever!
James Peters: TLA brings Darcy up to her feet but she tries to fight him off with a number of punches to the gut! She’s got him stunned for a moment but TLA grabs her by her hair as she turned to take off running- AND TLA SPINS HER AROUND RIGHT INTO A SWAG SHOT! A PIMP SLAP ROCKS DARCY AND TAKES HER RIGHT OFF HER FEET! TLA DROPS INTO THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: Darcy kicks out! But she sits right up into a chop across the chest! Darcy tries to console the pain but TLA forces her arms out the way and strikes with another, the sound of that chop echoing through the World 1 Theatre! And now TLA with a backhand slap to the face as Darcy was anticipating a third chop!
James Peters: Drake doesn’t like that one bit, reprimanding TLA for the blatant act of disrespect! But TLA doesn’t care at all, in fact, it just might be more motivation for him to ensure his victory here at all costs! TLA hauling Darcy up to her feet and he launches her with a double underhook suplex in Drake’s direction!
Rich Russillo: Darcy trudges to the ropes where Drake attempts to offer some advice while she tries to pull herself up! BUT TLA COMES SWINGING THROUGH THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH THE 305!!! THE TIGER FEINT KICK KNOCKS DARCY BACK TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!
James Peters: AND TLA LOOKS TO TAKE THINGS EVEN FURTHER WITH DRAKE AS HE TRIES TO KICK HIM AWAY FROM THE THE APRON! But Drake had already backed away, and now the two of them arguing again; clearly, TLA doesn’t trust Drake out here at ringside but he can’t allow himself to be easily distracted!
Persephone: For once we’re thinking the same thing because Drake’s presence is doing nothing but prolonging this bullshit. But I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone accuse TLA of ever being smart; being easily manipulated is just the kind of thing those weirdo cult leaders like Drake will happily prey upon and take advantage of.
Rich Russillo: AND DARCY STRIKES WITH THE FACE ACHE! TLA DOESN’T SEE HER COMING AND DARCY NEARLY KNOCKS TLA RIGHT OFF THE ARPON WITH THAT BICYCLE KICK! BUT TLA SOMEHOW HAS THE WHEREWITHAL TO HOLD ONTO THE TOP ROPE- NO, HE DROPS TO A KNEE BUT DARCY PULLS HIM OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE INTO A SMALL PACKAGE!!!
James Peters: TLA KICKS OUT! BUT DARCY IS IMMEDIATELY PULLING THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION UP AND WHIPPING HIM INTO THE ROPES! BUT AS SOON AS TLA HITS THE ROPES, DARCY MEETS HIM THERE WITH A STEP-UP KNEE STRIKE!
Rich Russillo: TLA IS SLUMPED AGAINST THE ROPES, LOOKING TOTALLY OUT OF IT! DARCY QUICKLY STEPS OUT ONTO THE APRON AND WRAPS HERSELF AROUND TLA FROM BEHIND, TRAPPING HIM IN A DRAGON SLEEPER WITH THE AID OF THE ROPES!
Persephone: YEEESSSS!!! GET YOURSELF DISQUALIFIED, QUEEN :blessed:!!!
James Peters: DARCY IS TOTALLY IGNORING THE REFEREE AS HE CALLS FOR HER TO RELEASE TLA, BUT SHE’S HELLBENT ON TRYING TO CHOKE HIM OUT RIGHT NOW! But even while realizing that TLA’s focus is definitely elsewhere, Darcy is clearly out to make a lasting impression on TLA!
Rich Russillo: It’s not necessarily TLA’s fault, but it almost can’t be helped! Darcy wrenches the hold while the referee is finally left with no choice but to start the count! One! Two! Three! Four! Fi- Darcy lets go and TLA drops to a knee- DARCY KICKS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD THROUGH THE ROPES!
James Peters: The referee continues to admonish Darcy for her tactics but she simply waves him off, calling for him to stay out her way! After hitting off the mat, TLA goes to push himself back up- BUT DARCY ENTERS THE RING, COMING FROM BEHIND AND DROPPING HIM WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG! DARCY GETS A HOLD OF TLA AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO THE AIR!
Rich Russillo: DARCY GETS HIM UP AND OVER FOR THE CURTAIN CALL!!
James Peters: BUT TLA PUSHES OFF JUST IN TIME AND GOES STUMBLING BACK INTO THE CORNER! DARCY CHARGES IN AFTER HIM BUT TLA KICKS HER AWAY, THWARTING HER EFFORTS AND DARCY FALLS TO THE MAT!
Rich Russillo: TLA’S CLIMBING THE TURNBUCKLES LOOKING TO GO UP TOP! TLA REACHES THE HIGHEST TURNBUCKLE AND TAKES A MOMENT TO POSITION HIMSELF PROPERLY! BUT THAT’S JUST ENOUGH TIME FOR DRAKE KING TO HAVE COME OVER AROUND THE RING POST AND TLA STOPS EVERYTHING TO TELL DRAKE TO STAY BACK!
James Peters: AND HERE COMES DARCY! MISS CASH IN THE VAULT TAKING EVERY OPPORTUNITY SHE’S GOTTEN THIS FAR TO REMIND TLA THAT SHE’S WHO HE NEEDS TO BE FOCUSED ON! SHE MIGHT NOT BE ONE FOR WANTING TO SHARE THE SPOTLIGHT, BUT DRAKE’S PRESENCE HAS CERTAINLY BENEFITTED HER, AS SHE CLOBBERS TLA WITH A RIGHT HAND ON THE WAY UP!
Rich Russillo: DARCY GETS ONTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AND STRIKES AGAIN, PUTTING TLA IN A PRECARIOUS POSITION AND I DON’T SEE IT ENDING WELL! DARCY GOES TO THE TOP BUCKLE TO MEET TLA THERE, AND DARCY GETS HIM IN PLACE FOR A SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!
James Peters: BUT TLA BLOCKS IT! DARCY TRIES AGAIN WITH MUCH ENCOURAGEMENT FROM DRAKE BUT TLA ISN’T BUDGING! TLA NOW COUNTERING AND LIFTING DARCY UP, AND HE DROPS HER FACE-FIRST TO THE MAT FROM ALL THE WAY UP TOP!
Rich Russillo: TLA NEARLY LOSES HIS BALANCE BUT HE STAYS UP ON THE TOP ROPE! BUT DOWN BELOW, DARCY TURNS OVER COVERING HER FACE AFTER THE FALL! 420!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM TLA COMES DOWN WITH PRECISION AND DRAKE KING APPEARS WORRIED, GRABBING AT HIS HAIR AS TLA HAS DARCY PINNED!!!
Persephone: Darcy gets her foot on the rope?! Gross! I thought this was over!
James Peters: And so did Drake from the looks of things! He tries to rouse Darcy back into the match, but she looks pretty out of it, though we all know Darcy isn’t to be underestimated! TLA bringing Darcy to her feet and he strikes with a punch to the face! Darcy stays on her feet but TLA has her unsteady after a spinning side kick, and now a kick to her knee to take her down!
Rich Russillo: TLA MOVING IN QUICK SUCCESSION AS HE KNOCKS DARCY BACK AGAINST THE ROPES WITH A SUPER KICK! DARCY STRUGGLES TO MAKE IT BACK TO HER FEET BUT TLA PULLS HER AWAY FROM THE ROPES! TLA WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!
James Peters: NO! DARCY DROPS DOWN TO HER FEET BEHIND AND WHIRLS HIM AROUND! VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT- NO! DARCY PUSHES OFF HIM AND CAUSES THEM TO SPIN AGAIN- DARCY STRIKING WITH A MASSIVE FOREARM SMASH!
Rich Russillo: TLA IS STUNNED AND DARCY WHIPS HIM INTO THE ROPES! TLA COMES SPRINGING OFF THE ROPES AND DARCY LIFTS HIM OFF HIS FEET AS SHE LOOKS FOR A SPINS LOOKING FOR A SPINEBUSTER!
James Peters: BUT TLA SLIPS OUT OVER HER AND TRIES TO TAKE HER DOWN INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN COUNTER!!
Rich Russillo: BUT DARCY USES THE MOMENTUM TO ROLL OUT! TLA RUSHING TO HIS FEET RIGHT INTO THE TTYN! THAT PUNCH FLOORS TLA AND DARCY COLLAPSES DOWN ONTO THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION, DRAKE KING ON THE OUTSIDE WITH OVERJOYED ELATION!!
James Peters: PERSEPHONE AND DRAKE SHARE THE SAME BLANK EXPRESSION AS TLA KICKS OUT! CLEARLY, THEY WERE BOTH WRONG TO THINK THIS WAS OVER!
Rich Russillo: DARCY SITS UP LOOKING AT DRAKE AND THEN TO TLA, ANNOYED AND FRUSTRATED! Darcy is without a doubt a strong competitor, but she’s struggled with TLA’s resilience and what it’d take to put him away. Darcy goes to bring TLA up and lifts him off his feet! German suplex from Darcy-
James Peters: TLA LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND HER! DARCY QUICKLY TURNS AROUND LOOKING TO HIT A SPINNING LARIAT BUT TLA DUCKS, ENDING UP BEHIND DARCY AGAIN!! TLA JUMPING UP AND BRINGING THE BACK OF DARCY’S HEAD BASHING AGAINST THE BACK OF THE MAT AS HE HITS THE ZIG ZAG, PUTTING DARCY DOWN AND OUT!!! BUT TLA ISN’T DONE, POINTING TO DRAKE AS HE’S NOW HAULING DARCY UP!! DRAKE LOOKS FURIOUS AS HE HAS TO WATCH WHILE TLA GOES TO HIT THE MEXICAN DESTROYER ON DARCY AND TLA GOES TURNING OVER INTO THE COVER!!!
Persephone: Whose idea was it to have this Charlie Manson asshole at ringside?! He just put Darcy’s foot on the rope when this could’ve been over! This is bullshit!
James Peters: AND TLA HAS TO BE THINKING THE SAME THING! HE SAW DRAKE PUT DARCY’S FOOT ON THE ROPE, HOWEVER, THE REFEREE DID NOT!
Rich Russillo: TLA IS LIVID AS DRAKE KING TURNS AWAY, FEIGNING INNOCENCE AND TLA REACHES THROUGH THE ROPES GETTING DRAKE BY THE HAIR! DRAKE TRYING TO TEAR HIMSELF AWAY BUT TLA ISN’T LETTING GO!
James Peters: WE JUST MIGHT GET A WICKED GAMES PREVIEW EARLY HERE!! TLA IS TRYING TO PULL HIM INTO THE RING AND DRAKE IS SCREAMING FOR TLA TO LEAVE HIM ALONE!!
Rich Russillo: DARCY GETS A HOLD OF TLA FROM BEHIND, EFFECTIVELY TEARING HIM OFF OF DRAKE AND IN THE SAME MOTION SHE HAS JUST QUICKLY ROLLED TLA UP INTO A PIN ON THE MAT!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea hits and Darcy rises to her feet, getting her arm raised by the referee while TLA is left to sit up on the mat with a look of surprise on his face, which quickly turns into pure anger!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… DAAARRRCYYYY MAAAAYYY MORRRRGAAANNN!!!
James Peters: Darcy is able to steal this one here tonight, as Drake’s assist at the end allowed her to stay in this! And clearly, TLA is well aware of that!
Rich Russillo: There’s nothing TLA can do about it now-
James Peters: AND DRAKE SLIDES INTO THE RING, GOING RIGHT AFTER TLA GIVING HIM NO TIME TO REACT!!! DRAKE PUMMELS AWAY AT TLA, PUTTING FISTS TO FACE AS HE HAS TLA STRUGGLING TO BREAK AWAY FROM THE ASSAULT!
(Darcy’s music has quickly come to a stop, and she turns around to find the sight that’s transpiring, causing her to appear confused as she never even saw Drake enter the ring! Drake lashing out at TLA and holding nothing back has Darcy watching on, unsure of what to do as even she apparently wasn’t expecting this to go down!)
Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE TRIES TO INTERVENE BUT DRAKE PUSHES THE REFEREE AWAY! THE REFEREE FALLS OVER TO THE MAT AND DRAKE DOESN’T CARE, AS HE’S GOING RIGHT BACK TO PUTTING ALL HIS FOCUS ONTO TLA AND WANTING TO BASH TLA’S FACE IN! TLA TRIES TO FIGHT BACK BUT DRAKE FIGHTS HIS HANDS AWAY AND EFFECTIVELY MAGES TO PIN DOWN HIS ARMS- SOMEONE HAS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
James Peters: HE’S GONNA BREAK TLA’S FACE!! DRAKE BRINGS TLA’S HEAD UP AND REELS BACK READY TO STRIKE ONE MORE TIME-
Persephone: And the only one with any sense in the ring to actually do something puts a stop to this, as Darcy grabs Drake’s arm before he can even swing and pulls him right off of TLA! Thank you! Now get this deranged fucker out of here!
James Peters: Darcy stands between Drake and TLA, trying to calm down Drake! He’s dropped Malcolm where he stood the other week, now he’s viciously attacked TLA, and Darcy’s left to be the one who has to figure out how she’s supposed to deal with Drake lashing out like this!
Persephone: Do you think he’s gonna actually remember this one this time? Or is he gonna try to plead bullshit insanity again? :mjgrin:
Rich Russillo: What I know is that TLA won’t be forgetting it, as the referee has to aid him in trying to make it back up to his feet, but it’s certainly taking some time as he’s trying to brush off the attack!
(Darcy gets Drake to leave from the ring, while TLA has sat up and turned to face the exiting duo with his focus clearly on Drake, whose attention is on TLA as well, the two of them staring each other down with tension toward their Wicked Games match continuing to grow. With TLA’s intense expression and Drake’s cold stare appearing on split-screens, it’s shortly after that the scene fades out.)
(Commercial break for new Crip-A-Cola flavors, such as blue. We’re not exactly sure what “blue” tastes like, so buy it and find out!)
(Voltage returns from commercial break to see Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring, holding a live EAW-Branded Microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson floods through the speakers, as the virtual EAW Crowd erupts in a mix of cheers and boos. The lights cut out, before strobe lights appear on the stage flashing red and purple, as Kasey Kaos walks onto the stage with a grin on her face.)
James Peters: Tonight we’re going to witness a matchup and a half! Kasey Kaos wrestles the biggest match of her career in recent times, against none other than the EAW World Champion himself!
Rich Russillo: I don’t think there’s any doubt in Kasey tonight. I mean… it’s Kasey. A literal hellspawn. Hate to pick sides… eh not really… but Kasey surely has it tonight!
Persephones: SOSA screwed Rexy out of his title, so I hope that insane bitch kills him!!!!
James Peters: :wow:
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… billed from The Lake of Fire… weighing in at 140 pounds… MISS MAYHEM… KAAAAAAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY KAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!!
(Kasey climbs onto the apron then crawls into the ring, before she pushes herself onto her knees. She suddenly falls back and pushes her arms over her head, before releasing a loud scream as her theme fades out. It’s then replaced as ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef plays through the arena, with the virtual audience booing heavily. SOSA Henderson walks onto the stage, with the EAW World Title strapped over his shoulder, and a grin is covering his face. He places his fingers over his sunglasses’ arms, before he begins to walk down the ramp.)
James Peters: And here comes the champ! Weeks ago at Territorial Invasion, SOSA Henderson dethroned the reigning champ Rex McAllister to win the gold for the first time in his career. The biggest prize he could’ve ever won, to show us that Rex was not unbeatable! He met his match, and SOSA is bound to have a great reign!
Persephone: Trash, trash, trash, trash. Rexy will always be a better champion than this fool!
James Peters: We’re too early into the reign to even judge! Although you’ve got something for Rex so, guess there’s no arguing with that.
Rich Russillo: Yeah what’s with that? You don’t need Rex, I’m her-
Persephone: Shut. Up.
(SOSA Henderson walks up the steel steps, then enters the ring. He holds up his EAW World Championship as he removes his glasses, and glances over to Kasey. He smirks, before dropping the glasses and patting the front plate of his prestigious championship. He gives her a cocky wink, practically telling her that she’s not on his level.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, introducing her opponent… hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania… weighing in at 191 pounds… HE IS THE EAW WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORLD CHAMPION! SOSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HENDERSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
(SOSA slowly gives his title a smooch, before raising it back into the air. His theme fades out, as he gives the referee the gold strap. SOSA walks back to his corner, and removes his entrance attire.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell rings, and the match starts with SOSA and Kasey square off in the center of the ring, as Kasey stares at him deep into his eyes – most likely trying to strike fear into SOSA. But he shows no fear at her presence, as he steps back, before delivering a forearm strike! Kasey tanks it, and doesn’t appear to be in any form of pain, returning the fire with a forearm strike of her own! SOSA wastes no time after he’s struck, hitting another forearm strike to her jaw, before ducking a returning forearm, and driving his palm into her stomach! He follows up with a chop, before irish whipping Kasey!
Rich Russillo: Kasey hits the ropes, but rebounds and connects with a slingblade! No! SOSA catches her and pushes her back, before attempting a handspring double heel kick, but Kasey sidesteps and rolls out of the way! Upon getting to her feet, she sprints forward towards SOSA, only for him to sidestep much like she did. But she was planning on it! Kasey leaps to the middle rope before twisting around and connecting with a crossbody, but gets caught in the process!
James Peters: SOSA swings her around, towards his back, looking for a go-home driver perhaps? But Kasey lands on her feet, before hitting SOSA with a swinging neckbreaker, taking him down to the ground in a damaging fashion! Thinking quickly in order to counter from the air! SOSA rolls onto the apron as Kasey gets back to her feet. She stalks her opponent, waiting for him to stand, before running the ropes and attempting to shoulder barge him off the apron-
Rich Russillo: BUT SOSA FRONT FLIPS OVER THE TOP, INTO A ROLL UP! HE QUICKLY LETS GO, BEFORE HE KIPS UP AND HITS AN ENZUIGIRI TO A KNEELING KASEY! AMAZING ATHLETICISM SHOWN BY THE CHAMP EARLY ON! SOSA RISES BACK TO HIS FEET, AND HEADS TO THE CORNER! HE LEAPS TO THE TOP ROPE WITH ONE JUMP, AS KASEY STANDS UP AGAIN! SOSA LEAPS… CROSSBODY FROM THE TOP ROPE!
James Peters: USING THE TURNBUCKLES AS A MEANS TO CRUSH KASEY UNDER HIS BODY WEIGHT, TAKING FLIGHT, AND CRASH LANDING ON TOP OF HIS OPPONENT! SOSA HOOKS THE LEG, LOOKING TO END THE MATCH HERE!
Rich Russillo: BUT KASEY POPS THE SHOULDER UP AT TWO! THE MATCH CONTINUES, AS DOES SOSA’S ATTACK! HE STANDS AND STUMBLES BACK, INTO THE CORNER, BEFORE KASEY GETS UP! HE ROLLS FORWARD AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR… ROLLING THUNDER CUTTE-
James Peters: SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK OUT OF THE AIR! SHE CATCHES SOSA AND CLIPS THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD WITH HER BOOT! SOSA FALLS BACK INTO THE CORNER, BEFORE BOUNCING OUT WITH A SPEAR! NO! KASEY LEAPS OVER THE SPEAR AND HITS A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP INTO HIS BACK, TAKING THE CHAMP TO THE GROUND! KASEY BOUNCES OFF HIS BACK, AND STUMBLES TO THE CORNER THAT SOSA BOLTED OUT OF. KASEY CLIMBS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE, BEFORE HITTING A DIVING FOOT STOMP TO HIS BACK A SECOND TI-
Rich Russillo: SOSA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME! HE GRABS KASEY’S LEG AND KICKS HER IN THE BACK OF HER THIGH! KASEY BENDS HER KNEES, FALLING OVER, AS SOSA CLIMBS TO HIS FEET AND GRABS HER BY HER HAIR! HE QUICKLY ATTEMPTS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, BUT KASEY DUCKS AND TURNS AROUND! SHE LEAPS ONTO HIS SHOULDERS LOOKING FOR A POISON RANA BUT SOSA QUICKLY RUNS FORWARD AND- OH MY GOD!
James Peters: SOSA THROWS KASEY KAOS OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE! SHE CRASHES HARD AND COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND, OH MY GOD! SOSA HENDERSON IS TREATING KASEY KAOS LIKE A RAGDOLL HERE TONIGHT!
Persephone: Spooky bitch is out in front of us.
James Peters: :wow:
Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos holds onto her legs, as they were the main part that felt the impact as they crashed and burned against the mat outside! There’s barely any padding stopping her from hitting against the concrete entirely. SOSA Henderson slides under the ropes and approaches Kasey, seemingly with a confidence boost now judging by the way he’s walking. SOSA grabs onto Kasey’s head and throws her face first into the apron, before onto our table in front of us- MY DR. PEPPER! NO! MY DR. PEPPER SPILLED OVER, YOU MONSTER!
Persephone: Good I hate hearing you sip that shit during commercials, it’s disgusting and it’s your sixth one tonight.
James Peters: Guys, I think SOSA heard you! He grabs onto the can, before spraying the remaining liquid over Kasey’s head as a sign of disrespec- WAIT! KASEY LEAPS INTO THE AIR BEFORE DRIVING HER THUMBS INTO HIS EYES, GOUGING HIM! THE REFEREE STARTS TO COUNT, THEY COULD BOTH BE OUT!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
James Peters: KASEY LETS GO AND HEADBUTTS SOSA! SHE ROLLS IN!
Referee: SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE!
James Peters: SOSA GETS TO HIS FEET-
Referee: TEN! NO!
James Peters: AND ENTERS THE RING! HE BREAKS THE COUNT, THE MATCH CONTINUES!
Rich Russillo: KASEY MOUNTS ON TOP OF SOSA, BEFORE CLAWING AT HIS EYES AGAIN! SOSA TRIES TO FIGHT BACK, HOLDING HER WRISTS AND STRUGGLING TO TAKE CONTROL! BUT KASEY CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT, KNOCKING HIS HEAD TO THE MAT, BEFORE CRAWLING INTO A COVER!
James Peters: SOSA KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! POWERING OUT, AND POPPING HIS SHOULDER UP! KASEY KAOS HEADBUTTS HIM AGAIN! AND AGAIN! SHE THEN GRABS HIM BY HIS ARM AND PULLS HIM TO HIS FEET! KASEY HOOKS HIS HEAD… ‘VAE VICTIS!’ INVERTED DDT! SOSA IS OUT COLD, KASEY KAOS IS ABOUT TO PICK UP A WIN OVER THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION! SHE COVERS HIM!
James Peters: KICK OUT! BUT KASEY TRANSITIONS INTO A SHINING WIZARD AFTER BOUNCING TO HER FEET! SOSA DUCKS! LUMBAR CHECK! HE FOLDED HER IN HALF! BACK SUPLEX INTO A DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! SOSA HENDERSON DOESN’T MAKE THE COVER THOUGH, HE’S SPENT! PROBABLY STILL GROGGY AFTER THOSE HEADBUTTS! SOSA BEGINS TO CRAWL OVER, BUT KASEY ROLLS ONTO HER STOMACH!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson is clearly annoyed by her avoiding the cover, but he doesn’t look to be giving up any time soon. He pushes himself up to his feet, before slowly moving towards Kasey. SOSA hooks her by her head and under her arm, and lifts her up. He quickly runs backwards and DDT’S HER INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! AND AGAIN! BEFORE HE LEAPS OFF THE ROPES AND HITS A FRONT FLIP DDT! BUT HE HOLDS ON! SOSA CLIMBS TO HIS FEET BEFORE HITTING A STRIKING BRAINBUSTER TO KASEY!
James Peters: SOSA ROLLS TO THE CORNER AND ONTO THE APRON, SEEMINGLY LOOKING TO CLIMB TO THE TOP ROPE, WHICH IS A DANGEROUS PLACE FOR BOTH PEOPLE, BUT RIGHT NOW THE TARGET OF DANGER IS KASEY KAOS! KASEY ROLLS AWAY BACK ONTO HER STOMACH, TRYING TO AVOID, BUT SOSA STILL STANDS UP… SOSA BOMB! SWANTON BOMB TO HER BACK, CRUSHING HER UNDER HIS WEIGHT AGAIN! HE ARCHES HIS BACK AND FALLS FLAT ON HIS FACE, BUT KASEY KAOS ISN’T MOVING AT ALL!
Rich Russillo: SOSA CONTINUES TO RECOVER, AS HE SHIFTS HIS BODY TOWARDS KASEY. HE SHOOTS THE HALF, SLOWLY, BEFORE CRAWLING INTO A COVER!
Rich Russillo: THREE! NO! WAIT! KASEY KAOS GETS THE SHOULDER UP! SOSA HENDERSON COULDN’T PUT HER AWAY WITH THAT SOSA BOMB, MAYBE HE DIDN’T GET ALL OF IT WHEN HITTING HER BACK, ESPECIALLY WITH THE TIME IT TOOK FOR HIM TO GET INTO THE COVER!
Persephone: He could’ve just, like, got up.
James Peters: It’s… not that easy. SOSA dived from high up, at a high speed. That’s bound to hurt.
Persephone: Yeah and it’s bound to hurt when I punch you in the face, but you’ll get up right?
James Peters: Wow, okay…
Rich Russillo: Guys… GUYS! PAID IN FULL! DOUBLE CURB STOMP!
James Peters: BUT KASEY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! SOSA STOMPS THE GROUND, AND SHE RISES UP BEHIND HIM! ‘ASK THE ANGELS’ SPIN KICK FROM BEHIND, HOOKING AROUND TO HIS FACE! SOSA DROPS TO HIS KNEES, AND KASEY RUNS THE ROPES… CHERRY BOMB! SHINING WIZARD TO SOSA, COULD WE BE WITNESSING KASEY KAOS DEFEATING THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION?
Rich Russillo: SOSA KICKS OUT! WAIT! HE TRANSITIONS INTO A CROSSFACE! WRAPPING HIS LEGS AROUND KASEY’S ARM, AND HIS HANDS AROUND HER FACE! HE’S SHOWING WHY HE WON THE TITLE FROM REX HERE TONIGHT, SHOWING OFF HIS AMAZING STILL! COULD HE FORCE HER TO TAP OUT HERE?!!?
James Peters: KASEY KAOS SHOWS NO SIGNS OF PAIN IN THIS SUBMISSION?! HOW ON EARTH!? SHE DOESN’T REACH TOWARDS THE ROPES, SHE DOESN’T SCREAM, SHE JUST LETS IT HAPPEN WITH WHAT SEEMS TO BE A GRIN ON HER FACE! WHAT THE HELL?!?!
Rich Russillo: SOSA HENDERSON WRENCHES BACK HARDER, BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE WORKING! WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO MAKE HER SUBMIT!? CAN HE EVEN MAKE HER SUBMIT!? KASEY KAOS SAYS NO AS SHE ELBOWS HIM SQUARE IN THE JAW WITH HER FREE ARM! SOSA IS QUICKLY KNOCKED BACK, GIVING HER AN OPPORTUNITY TO RISE UP ON HER FEET! SHE THEN BEGINS TO SHOOT KICK SOSA REPEATEDLY! THE SLAPS OF HER BOOT CLIPPING HIS BACK ARE AUDIBLE, AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HURT QUITE BADLY! AFTER EVERY KICK, SOSA WINCES IN PAIN!
James Peters: SHE’S JUST TRYING TO TORTURE SOSA RIGHT NOW, MAYBE ABOUT MAKING A STATEMENT, OR JUST TO FUFFIL HER SICK URGES? WHATEVER IT IS, THIS COULD BE BAD FOR SOSA! SHE KNEELS ON TOP OF HIM AND BEGINS TO PLUMMET HER ARMS INTO THE CURVE OF HIS FOREHEAD! ELBOW STRIKE AFTER ELBOW STRIKE, THIS IS FURTHER THAN BRUTAL!
Rich Russillo: BUT SOSA REFUSES TO GIVE UP AND GET KNOCKED OUT! HE CONTINUES TO LIFT HIS HEAD UP, PRACTICALLY BEGGING FOR MORE! HE STILL SHOWS HE’S NOT AFRAID! BUT KASEY STOPS HER FOREARMS, AND DIGS HER TEETH INTO HIS EYEBROW!
James Peters: BUT SOSA SPITS INTO HER FACE BEFORE SHE GETS TO BITE! HER HEAD JOLTS BACK, AS HER EYE CLOSES, BEFORE SOSA HEADBUTTS HER MUCH LIKE SHE DID EARLIER! KASEY STUMBLES AWAY, AS SOSA CLIMBS TO HIS FEET! KICK TO THE STOMACH! KASEY IS KNOCKED INTO THE ROPES! SOSA TRIES TO IRISH WHIP HER, BUT SHE SPINS AROUND AND COUNTERS THE RECOIL. SOSA HITS THE ROPES… ROLLING THUNDER CUTTER OUT OF NOWHERE! KASEY KAOS HITS THE GROUND, AND HARD!
Rich Russillo: SOSA HENDERSON ROLLS TO HIS STOMACH BEFORE PUSHING KASEY ONTO HER BACK! HE SCRAMBLES INTO THE COVER, THIS COULD BE IT!
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS SOMEHOW MANAGES TO FIND THE POWER TO KICK OUT! THE MATCH CONTINUES, BUT SOSA HENDERSON LOOKS TO END IT! HE LIFTS KASEY TO HER FEET, THEN INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, BUT SHE HURRICANRANA’S HIM INTO THE ROPES! HE REBOUNDS AND ATTEMPTS A LARIAT BUT SHE DUCKS AND KICKS HIM IN THE STOMACH! SHE PLACES HER LEG OVER HIS HEAD, BUT HE STANDS UP STRAIGHT, AND SHE’S FLIPPED INTO THE AIR, BUT LANDS ON HER FEET AND-
James Peters: CUTTER OUTTA NOWH- NO! KASEY PUSHES HIM FORWARD BEFORE TRYING TO LOCK IN THE ‘KAOS REIGNS’ REAR NAKED CHOKE- ONLY FOR SOSA HENDERSON TO COUNTER WITH A SNAPMARE! BEFORE HE HITS THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A SINGLE LEG DROPKICK TO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD! BUT HE’S NOT DONE THERE! SOSA HENDERSON QUICKLY CRAWLS TOWARDS THE CORNER, BEFORE CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, BUT KASEY GRABS ONTO HIS BOOT! HE TRIES TO KICK HER AWAY, BUT IT’S NOT WORKING! SHE’S CLIMBING UP HOLDING ONTO HIS LEG, BEFORE HEADBUTTING HIM IN THE CHEST! HE FALLS BACK, ALMOST OUT OF THE RING ONTO THE APRON, BUT HE HOLDS ON! WAIT… OH NO…
Rich Russillo: KASEY STANDS ON THE TOP ROPE… METEORA ONTO THE APRON! SHE HITS A TREE OF WOE METEORA ONTO THE APRON, CRUSHING HIS HEAD UNDER HER KNEES! THAT’S THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING, DAMNIT!
Persephone: Literally EVERYBODY knows it’s the hardest part of the ring!
Rich Russillo: :mjcry:
James Peters: SOSA HENDERSON LIES ON THE APRON, AS IF HE WAS A CORPSE IN A HORROR FILM! WHICH IS FITTING BECAUSE KASEY KAOS LOOKS LIKE THE KILLER! SHE GETS TO HER FEET ON THE OUTSIDE BEFORE PUSHING SOSA BACK INTO THE RING, BUT SHE’S UNABLE TO FOLLOW UP! SHE’S COMPLETELY OUT OF ENERGY, AND DROPS TO HER KNEES!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE!
James Peters: KASEY SLOWLY CRAWLS INTO THE RING, AND GETS TO HER FEE- SUPERKICK! FOLLOWED UP BY A LEAPING SUPERKICK! FOLLOWED UP BY A LEAPING DDT-
Rich Russillo: KASEY HITS A SUPERKICK OF HER OWN OUT OF THE AIR AGAIN, BEFORE BOTH OF THEM DROP TO THE FLOOR! THEY’RE UNABLE TO MOVE AFTER ALL THE DAMAGE ISSUED TO THE HEADS, AND THEIR BODY HAS HAD ENOUGH! THEY COLLAPSE AN- WAIT!!! KASEY KAOS SLOWLY RISES TO HER FEET, AND APPEARS TO BE UNSCAVED AS SHE STARES DOWN AT SOSA! SOSA LIFTS HIS HEAD UP, AND VISIBLE ROLLS HIS EYES! HE SLOWLY RISES TO HIS KNEES!
SOSA Henderson: (off-mic) this bitch crazy…
James Peters: CHERRY BOMB- NO! SOSA PRACTICALLY COLLAPSES UNDER HIS OWN WEIGHT, AND KASEY COMPLETELY MISSES! OH MY! SHE CONNECTS WITH THE TURNBUCKLES AND FALLS OVER SOSA- SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP! SOSA IS GONNA STEAL IT!
- James Peters: KASEY KAOS KICKS OUT, BUT SOSA KIPS UP LIKE EARLIER! HIS LEGS ARE SWEEPED, AND HE MANAGES TO LEAP OVER, ONLY TO BE CAUGHT WITH ANOTHER HEADBUT- NO! HE DUCKS THAT BEFORE ROLLING KASEY UP AGAIN!
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS ESCAPES, AND SOSA ROLLS TO HIS FEET! SUPERKICK! SHE FALLS DOWN TO HER BACK! SOSA STUMBLES TO THE CORNER, BEFORE CLIMBING BACK TO THE MIDDLE ROPE! KASEY KAOS, ON JELLY LEGS, RISES TO HER FEET! SOSA LEAPS AGAI- DROPKICK OUT OF THE AIR! SOSA FALLS INTO A SEATED POSITION IN THE CORNER, AS KASEY GETS BACK TO A STANDING POSITION! SHE RUNS FORWARD, AND SMASHES HER KNEE INTO SOSA’S FACE! SHE RUNS BACK TOWARDS THE OTHER CORNER, BOUNCES OFF, BEFORE HITTING ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE! KASEY STARES DOWN AT SOSA FIERCELY, BEFORE RUNNING BACK AGAIN AND-
James Peters: SPANISH FLY OUT OF NOWHERE! SOSA HENDERSON BOUNCES TO HIS FEET AND HITS A SPANISH FLY, TAKING KASEY DOWN TO THE GROUND! BUT SOSA IS OUT OF ENERGY AGAIN! HE’S UNABLE TO MAKE THE COVER, AND KASEY ROLLS AWAY! SOSA BEGINS TO RECOVER, AS HE SLOWLY TRIES TO LIFT HIS BODY UP, FIGHTING THROUGH THE PAIN AND LACK OF ENERGY, JUST TO FINISH THIS MATCH! HE HOLDS ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND PULLS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET, YOU CAN SEE THE ROPES SHAKING! BUT HE POWERS THROUGH, AND FINALLY GETS BACK UP!
Rich Russillo: HE STUMBLES TO KASEY, ONLY TO BE SLAPPED IN THE FACE! SWEAT SPRAYS INTO THE AIR AS HE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CORNER! KASEY GETS UP AND SPRINTS AFTER HIM, BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE AIR- SOSA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, AND KASEY LAND SON THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE. SHE TURNS AROUND, BUT GETS KICKED IN THE FOOT, AND SHE’S LEFT DANGLING! JUMPING SUPERKICK! LEAPING DDT! DEADSHOT CONNECTS! KASEY KAOS IS OUT OF IT! SOSA PULLS HER INTO A COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits the speakers, as SOSA Henderson rolls off of Kasey Kaos. The referee slides over and places the EAW World Championship on his chest, as Bella Braxton announces the result.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION… “BULLETPROOF” SOOOOOOOOOOOSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HENDERSOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!
James Peters: What a bout! After a back and forth FIGHT, SOSA Henderson proves to everyone why he is the EAW World Champion exactly.
Rich Russillo: This match was far from a wrestling match, it was non stop action, back and forth with kicks and strikes, along with some genuine mauling. Fair play to SOSA for being able to keep up, and go beyond!
(As SOSA Henderson climbs to his feet, he raises the EAW World Title above his head to show off his prize. The virtual audience boo hard, as Voltage fades to commercial.)
(Commercial for Party City. Get in the Halloween Spirit with new Azrael costumes and masks, in stores now!)
(The camera fades back to the ring, and Bella Braxton is there with a microphone in her hand.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following triple threat match is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: And it is for number one contendership for the EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(‘Starboy’ by the Weeknd hits, and the virtual crowd begins to boo as Ahren Fournier makes his way out to the stage. He looks confident as usual, but tonight his confidence may be justified after winning his match on Dynasty just a few days ago. Nonetheless, it’s clear Ahren knows he has what it takes to win tonight, as he completely ignores the crowds booing on his way down the ramp and to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…. From Pawtucket, Rhode Island… Weighing in at 210 pounds…. AAAAHHHRREEENNNNN FFOOUURRRNNNIEERRR!!!!!
James Peters: This should be good! Just a few weeks ago these three were on the same team winning Brand Warfare together at Territorial Invasion, but tonight they’re opponents as they fight for number one contendership to the EAW World Championship! I’m not sure who will win this, all three Elitists stand a great chance!
Rich Russillo: Ahren Fournier has held that Championship before, and back at Bloodsport he pinned SOSA Henderson to win that triple threat match with Candice Blair. I don’t know who’s going to win, but if Ahren does win he would not be in unfamiliar territory.
James Peters: That is true, but he lost the EAW Championship well over a year ago, and that match against SOSA was a triple threat like you said. This wouldn’t exactly be the same thing he’s dealing with.
Persephone: This sucks. One of these losers have the possibility of becoming EAW Championship all because SOSA had to get lucky against Rexy!
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons follows, and all of the booing from the virtual crowd switches to cheers as Terry Chambers walks out to the stage. Unlike Ahren who sported a smirk on his way down the ramp, Terry looks completely focused on his match as unlike both of his opponents Terry’s never held a World Championship before. Terry has a lot he wants to accomplish, and this is his opportunity to finally do it. As Terry walks down the ramp, he doesn’t take his eyes off of Ahren.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… Residing in Los Angeles, California…. Weighing in at 257 pounds….. TTEEEERRRRRYYYYYY CCCHHAAAAAAMMBBEERRRSS!!!!
James Peters: Terry Chambers is the only person in this match that’s never held a World Championship of any kind, so there’s a chance he just might be the most motivated heading into it. Terry’s always been a dangerous competitor, and we saw what he was doing to Andrea Valentine back at King of Elite. Terry could very possibly win his first ever World Championship very soon if he’s able to overcome this triple threat match!
Rich Russillo: Possibly, but there also may be a reason he’s never been World Champion. Terry didn’t even make it to the end of that Brand Warfare match, though Terry’s admit that he hated going out the way he did. He can’t stay mad for long though, he needs to put that energy into winning this match and going on to defeat SOSA Henderson.
James Peters: Let’s not forget, Territorial Invasion was Terry’s first time being pinned this entire season so far, even if he went on to win that match. Hopefully he’s able to bounce back, we all know he has it in him.
(Finally, ‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie hits, and the virtual crowd’s reaction changes once again as they go back to booing. After a while, Minerva finally begins walking out to the stage as Ahren Fournier and Terry Chambers watch on. This is Minerva’s first ever chance to compete for a World Championship outside of the Universal Women’s Championship, and Minerva doesn’t waste any time as she soon begins walking down the ramp, heading towards the ring so the match can begin.)
Bella Braxton: And making her way to the ring…. Residing in the Florida Everglades…. Weighing in at 122 pounds…. MMMIIIIIIIINNEEEERRRRVVVAAAA!!!!!
James Peters: And finally, Minerva! Minerva’s been Universal Women’s Champion, but she’s never had an opportunity at the World Heavyweight, Answers World, or EAW World Championships. This could be a first time ever for Minerva, all she has to do is get past this triple threat match against two people she knows very well.
Rich Russillo: Unlike Ahren, Minerva’s defeated SOSA in one on one competition. If she’s able to win tonight, who knows, maybe she’ll be able to do it again! Minerva’s been Universal Women’s Champion for months, and I doubt that’s the final World Championship she’ll hold.
James Peters: This may just be her night. It’d be stupid to doubt what Minerva can do.
Persephone: Why? What’s so special about Minerva?
James Peters: Minerva’s without a doubt one of the brightest Elitists this company has brought in the past few years, there’s a reason team Voltage chose Minerva in the first place.
Persephone: Look at who was on team Voltage. Look at who’s in this match! None of them are exactly greatest of all time material, so I don’t really care why they chose Minerva. Minerva’s not special, Terry Chambers is just awful, and can Ahren even speak in normal sentences? He’s so annoying. They all are. I miss Rex.
James Peters: I can tell..
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is underway! A triple threat match to determine SOSA Henderson’s opponent at Wicked Games! Terry, Ahren and Minerva are all beginning to circle the ring- AND AHREN JUST ROLLED MINERVA UP WITH A SCHOOL BOY PIN- BUT TERRY JUST GRABBED AHREN FROM BEHIND AND TOSSED HIM ACROSS THE RING! Ahren is getting back up and backing into the corner, BUT MINERVA JUST HIT TERRY WITH A CHOP BLOCK FROM BEHIND! This match is off to a very fast paced start as Minerva now begins running the ropes- AND HITS TERRY WITH A HUGE SHINING WIZARD!
Rich Russillo: Ahren now trying to sneak back into this with yet another roll up, but Minerva immediately kicks out of it before kicking Ahren in the midsection! Minerva now with an irish whip- but Ahren turns it around! Ahren attempts a clothesline but Minerva ducks it, and now Minerva attempted a forearm smash but Ahren ducked it before grabbing Minerva from
behind! Ahren just attempted a neckbreaker but Minerva quickly turned around, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX BY MINERVA! Minerva’s on fire right now early on in the match, meanwhile Terry’s already back to his feet and in the corner! Minerva now charges in on Terry-
Persephone: Just to eat a boot to the face. Surprised she didn’t see that coming, Terry’s basically a giant. A slow giant at that. Anyways Terry’s grabbing Minerva before approaching the other corner, and wow! He just threw her back first into the turnbuckles with all his power, and it doesn’t look like he’s finished there. Minerva was trying to get back up but Terry quickly grabbed her and sent her back first into the opposite pair of turnbuckles. Terry’s backing up as Minerva slowly uses the turnbuckles to get back up, and now he charges in before hitting Minerva with a clothesline in the corner.
James Peters: Minerva dropping down, and she’s having to use the middle rope to stop herself from falling to the mat. Terry’s not having it though, and he immediately picks her up and puts her on his shoulders! Terry looks like he may be going for a powerslam- BUT AHREN HITS TERRY WITH ANOTHER ATTACK TO THE LEG! Ahren knows that Terry’s the biggest guy in the match and that’s the best way to take him down, especially seeing as Minerva attacked his leg earlier! That attack allowed Minerva to slip out of Terry’s grasp, and now both Ahren and Minerva are just pummeling Terry Chambers!
Rich Russillo: NOT FOR LONG! TERRY JUST PUSHED BOTH MINERVA AND AHREN OFF OF HIM! MINERVA CHARGED BACK TOWARDS TERRY, BUT TERRY JUST TOOK HER DOWN WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! That could’ve decapitated her! Ahren now is on Terry’s back, and he has a sleeper hold locked in! Ahren could try and convert this into his crossface chickenwing, but it might be a little too early, Terry still has way too much fight left in him! WAIT, TERRY GRABS AHREN BY HIS HAIR AND PULLS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDER, AND THERE’S A HUGE BACKBREAKER BY THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE! TERRY WITH THE COVER ON AHREN!
James Peters: Ahren gets the shoulder up! Terry said he needed this win and at this rate he might just get it. Terry’s on top of Ahren now, and he’s just punching away at him! The last few moments have been all Terry- OH! AHREN GOUGING TERRY’S EYES, AND THAT ALLOWS AHREN TO MOVE AWAY FROM UNDER HIM! It looks like Terry’s recovered, and now he grabs Ahren by the throat just as he got up, BUT AHREN HITS A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! AHREN NOW PUTTING TERRY’S ARM OVER HIS SHOULDER BEFORE CHARGING INTO THE CORNER, AND AHREN JUST RAMMED TERRY INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
Rich Russillo: AND THERE’S MINERVA WITH A FOREARM TO AHREN! Minerva grabbing Ahren before backing up, AND SHE THROWS AHREN SHOULDER FIRST INTO TERRY’S MIDSECTION! If I had to guess that must have taken something out of both Ahren and Terry, but I’m surprised Minerva’s even able to get back to her feet after the clothesline she received earlier! Had it have been anyone else, I’m sure they would’ve been out of this match.
Persephone: :skip: Anyone like who?? That clothesline was so bad and sloppy, and the match hasn’t even been going for that long! Anyways Terry’s now leaning on the ropes, and now Minerva’s running the opposite pair of ropes before charging in- just for Terry to lift her over her head. Somehow Minerva managed to hang onto the ropes and pull herself onto the apron, but Terry looks like he’s trying to knock her off of it. Not sure what good that’d do, I guess it’d take her out of the equation but not for very long.
James Peters: Well it doesn’t matter right now! Minerva managed to fight back against Terry as she hit him with a forearm! WAIT A SECOND! MINERVA PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE, AND AT THE SAME TIME AHREN JUST SENT TERRY TO THE ROPES! AHREN JUST SENT TERRY OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING! Terry somehow managed to land on his feet though! That size advantage is coming into play, but Minerva manages to kick him away from the apron- BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE METEORA OFF OF THE APRON! TERRY CHAMBERS IS DOWN, AND AFTER TAKING SUCH A MOVE OUTSIDE OF THE RING HE COULD BE DOWN FOR A WHILE!
Rich Russillo: AND JUST LIKE THAT THERE’S AHREN FROM BEHIND! Ahren just grabbed Minerva and sent her into the barricade! Ahren is pulling Minerva back up to her feet, but that’s only so he could send her face first into the ring post! Ahren took advantage of Minerva focusing on Terry, and now he has this match in the palm of his hands! Minerva’s trying to get back up, BUT AHREN HITS A HUGE PUNT KICK TO HER MIDSECTION, dropping her back down to the floor!
Persephone: Wow, this is probably the most offense Ahren’s gotten in the entire match and he only got it after he attacked Minerva from behind. Well, Ahren’s rolling Minerva back into the ring and hopefully he’s going for the pinfall that ends the match. I genuinely couldn’t care less about who wins this match, I just need it to end ASAP. Ahren’s got Minerva in a grounded headlock, but that doesn’t even last too long as Minerva’s already back up to one foot. Wow, this is sad. She’s already about to escape the headlock. Can this guy do anything right?
James Peters: Well Ahren just kneed Minerva in the midsection as soon as she was about to escape the headlock, and now he drags her to the ropes before pressing her throat into the top rope! Ahren’s choking Minerva on the top rope and it’s all legal as this is a triple threat, meaning there’s no disqualifications! Minerva hasn’t really been able to get going ever since Ahren attacked her from behind, if Ahren wants to win this he needs to make sure to stay on top of Minerva and put her down before Terry Chambers could get back into the match!
Rich Russillo: It’s Terry Chambers, it’s only a matter of time until he’s back in this! There’s no way Ahren can defeat Minerva that fast! Minerva just hit a huge back elbow to Ahren’s face, THE DEVIL’S TOUCH- NO! AHREN MANAGED TO DUCK UNDER THAT SUPERKICK, AND NOW HE GOES FOR PROTECT YA NECK, BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO DUCK THAT AS WELL! MINERVA NOW GRABS AHREN FROM BEHIND THOUGH, AND SHE CONNECTS WITH TWILIGHT!! MINERVA JUST HIT AHREN WITH TWILIGHT, AND THIS MATCH COULD BE OVER! THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER TO THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP MAY BE DECIDED!
James Peters: NO! AHREN MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! That was really close, Minerva nearly got the win just like that! Minerva’s never had a match for the EAW Championship before, but this could be her time! Minerva gets back to her feet, and now she’s pulling Ahren back up! She has Ahren in a front facelock, and I think she’s getting ready to finish up this match! I didn’t think a match with Elitists of this caliber would end so quickly, but here we are! MINERVA LIFTS AHREN UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOING FOR ATLAS FALLS- WAIT! WHAT!?
Rich Russillo: TERRY JUST SLID BACK INTO THE RING AND GRABBED MINERVA FROM BEHIND! MINERVA DROPS AHREN DOWN TO HIS FEET BUT SHE STILL HAS HIM IN SUPLEX POSITION! TERRY NOW WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX, AND THIS CAUSES MINERVA TO HIT AHREN FOURNIER WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX! TERRY NOW WITH THE BRIDGING PIN ON MINERVA!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA KICKS OUT, AND THAT CAUSES HER TO DROP RIGHT ONTO AHREN FOR A COVER!
Rich Russillo: AHREN KICKS OUT AS WELL, BUT MINERVA DOESN’T GET ANY TIME TO RESPOND AS TERRY IMMEDIATELY DEADLIFTS HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION!
Persephone: Unfortunately Minerva’s actually trying to fight out of whatever Terry’s doing. She’s punching away at him and it’s clearly having an effect on Terry, but Terry won’t let go no matter what she’s throwing at him. Minerva now is even gouging at Terry’s eyes like Ahren did earlier, but Terry still won’t let go! In fact he’s quickly making his way towards the ropes. Ohhhh, I know what he’s gonna do! I actually kinda like this because Minerva might land on her neck and die! Terry charges towards the ropes, AND HE GOES FOR A POWERBOMB OVER THE TOP!
James Peters: MINERVA GRABS ONTO THE ROPES! Minerva’s hanging onto the ropes for dear life, and it looks like now she’s gonna try to use her legs to pull Terry back out of the ring! I’m not even sure if this is possible, Terry’s well over a hundred pounds heavier than Minerva! Nonetheless she’s trying, and it looks like she’s slowly succeeding as Terry’s beginning to lose balance! Terry’s slowly beginning to go over the top, I think Minerva’s about to send Terry right back to ringside- WAIT! NO! TERRY PUSHES MINERVA OFF!
Rich Russillo: Terry pushed Minerva’s legs off of him but she’s still on the apron! Minerva quickly gets back to her feet, and- MOMENT OF SILENCE! MINERVA FALLS RIGHT OFF THE APRON AFTER THAT HUGE HEADBUTT! Now it’s just Ahren and Terry in the ring together, and Terry immediately turns his attention to Fournier, who’s in the corner just barely starting to get back up! Terry goes over to Ahren and attempts to pick him up, BUT AHREN HITS A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION! NOW AHREN HITS ANOTHER PUNCH! AHREN NOW WITH A FOREARM TO THE FACE!
James Peters: TERRY JUST LIFTS AHREN ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AFTER ALL OF THAT! TERRY CARRIES AHREN INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE T-5- AND AHREN LANDS ONTO HIS FEET! AHREN GRABS TERRY’S ARM BEFORE GOING BEHIND HIM, AND AHREN CONNECTS WITH THE CLIMAX! THE CLIMAX CONNECTS AND TERRY JUST DROPPED TO A KNEE! SUPERKICK!!! AHREN WITH A HUGE SUPERKICK, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE COVER ON TERRY CHAMBERS! AHREN’S GONNA GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO REGAIN THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, THIS MATCH IS OVER!
James Peters: WAIT, NO! IT’S NOT OVER! IT’S NOT OVER YET, TERRY KICKS OUT!
Persephone: Oh come on. Why did he have to kick out? It’s Terry Chambers, he’s not winning a World Championship anyway so why can’t he just accept defeat? I don’t get it.
Rich Russillo: Well, I don’t think Terry wants that outcome. Terry still has hope and he believes he has what it takes to become World Champ! Honestly, I think Terry might have what it takes, he’s looked amazing tonight.
Persephone: Well.. If SOSA can become World Champ.. 🤢… I guess Terry can too. Nevermind, it didn’t even feel right saying that. Terry Chambers is awful, if Ahren can’t put him away he’s just somehow even worse.
James Peters: This time it’s Ahren on top of Terry, and Ahren’s just hitting Terry with nasty elbows and forearms! Terry attempts a punch back- BUT AHREN MANAGES TO GRAB HIS HAND! TERRY’S TRYING TO KEEP HIS HAND CLOSED BUT AHREN MANAGES TO OPEN IT! GET F- TERRY PULLS AHREN INTO A HEADBUTT! Both men are down now and Ahren’s holding his head, that may have been a desperate move from Terry but it definitely got the job done! It saved Terry from having more damage done after that knee and superkick, but now what!? Wait, wait a minute! Look!
Rich Russillo: Minerva’s rolled back into the ring, and it looks like she’s beginning to realize what’s going on here! Both Terry and Ahren are down, Minerva has a chance to win this! Minerva’s rushing over to the corner closest to Ahren and Terry, AND THERE IT IS! HELL’S BELLS ONTO AHREN FOURNIER! MINERVA IMMEDIATELY HOOKS THE LEGS, AND JUST LIKE THAT I THINK MINERVA’S JUST WON NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP!
Rich Russillo: NO! TERRY JUST BARELY MANAGES TO BREAK UP THE PINFALL! That was really close! Way too close!
Persephone: Yeah I agree, it was too close. We were so close to finishing the match but Terry just doesn’t want it to end. What a shame. This has been such a chore to sit through. I really don’t wanna be here.
James Peters: Minerva’s back to her feet, and now she’s just stomping away at Terry! Minerva can’t hit a lot of the moves she normally would on Terry due to the size difference, but now she has her foot on Terry’s throat and is just choking him! This alone might be able to get the job done!
Rich Russillo: Wait. Terry’s just grabbed Minerva by her foot! Terry’s crawling into a seated position before getting to a knee, and he’s just holding Minerva’s leg as he slowly gets back to his feet! WAIT, ANKLE LOCK!!! TERRY HAS MINERVA IN AN ANKLE LOCK, AND HE PULLS MINERVA FAR AWAY FROM THE ROPES! There are no rope breaks in triple threats often, but if Minerva got to the ropes it would’ve been far easier for her to escape the submission than it is now! This isn’t good, Minerva might actually have to tap out if Terry keeps this submission up!
Persephone: GOOD! She should tap out right now! This match has been atrocious and I don’t want it to continue any longer.
James Peters: Well it doesn’t look like Ahren will be getting back up very soon, he did get hit with that headbutt and the moonsault from Minerva after all! That alone may have screwed Minerva over, as now she’s trapped in this submission! Minerva’s on leg right now trying to reach out to whatever she could, but nothing’s working! The referee is asking her if she wants to tap out or give up- AND MINERVA JUST SPIT THAT MIST INTO HIS FACE! THE DARK!!! MINERVA SPRAYED THE DARK MIST INTO THE REFEREE’S FACE, WHAT WAS THAT FOR!?
Rich Russillo: TERRY CAN’T WIN IF THE REFEREE’S UNABLE TO SEE! THE REFEREE IS ON THE FLOOR TRYING TO WIPE THE MIST OFF OF HIM, AND I THINK TERRY’S REALIZED THAT THERE’S NO POINT OF KEEPING THAT SUBMISSION IN! Minerva just took the referee out of the equation for the time being but that was the only way she’d get out of a submission like that from Terry! Minerva doesn’t look like she’s in much better shape now though, in fact Terry’s lifting Minerva onto her shoulders!
James Peters: MINERVA GRABS ONTO TERRY’S NOSE, AND SHE’S JUST PULLING BACK ON IT NOW! MINERVA STARTING TO SLIP OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS, AND SHE MANAGES TO GET INTO A SLEEPER HOLD! THIS TIME IT’S MINERVA WITH THE SLEEPER HOLD ON TERRY! Now Terry’s in trouble, this late in the match he may actually be in trouble! This right here might win Minerva the match, I’m not sure how long Terry will be able to last like this! It looks like Terry’s starting to fade! He’s stumbled towards the ropes, but there are no rope breaks, WAIT A SECOND!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA JUST JUMPED OFF OF TERRY’S BACK, AS AHREN JUST SENT TERRY OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE! MINERVA NOW WITH A BACK BODY DROP CAUSING AHREN TO GO OVER AS WELL! How did Minerva avoid that!? Ahren’s managed to just barely land on his feet, but now Minerva’s running the ropes! SUICIDE DIVE! MINERVA WITH A HUGE SUICIDE DIVE TO AHREN FOURNIER- AND TERRY JUST WENT FOR THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING BUT MINERVA BARELY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! That was really close!
Persephone: Minerva just hit Terry with a knee to the side of his head, and now she’s grabbing him before sending him into the steel steps. Well I guess that’s Terry out of the match again. Thank God. That means this should be coming to an end soon, and this has been torture to watch so any sign of it ending is good to me. Minerva is picking up Ahren- but Ahren just hit Minerva with a headbutt that clearly stunned her. Ahren now with a forearm, and he slams her face onto the ring apron.
James Peters: Minerva just tried to swing at Ahren, but Ahren blocked it before hitting Minerva with another forearm! Minerva’s not looking too good right now, she needs to find a way back into it as Ahren’s all over her! Ahren grabs Minerva by the neck now, AND HE THROWS HER INTO THE BARRICADE! Ahren now grabbing Minerva, AND HE GOES FOR A SUPLEX ON THE OUTSIDE BUT MINERVA HITS AHREN WITH A KNEE TO THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! MINERVA LANDS ON HER FEET, AND SHE HITS AHREN WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! That clearly had to hurt Ahren, as there he goes rolling back into the ring!
Rich Russillo: Minerva follows Ahren, but Ahren rolls all the way out to the apron on the opposite side of the ring. Minerva quickly tries to follow behind, but Ahren hits her with a forearm, sending her backwards! Ahren now making his way up to the top rope, which isn’t something I really expected to see from Ahren- WAIT! MINERVA RUSHES IN AND PUSHES AHREN’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM! Minerva now is climbing up, as Ahren is stuck on the top rope! What could she be going for at this point!? Whatever it is, it could spell the end of this match!
James Peters: Minerva has Ahren in a front facelock, and now she’s trying to get his arm over her head, I think she’s going for a superplex! Minerva has Ahren in position, AND SHE GOES- NO! AHREN MANAGES TO STAY IN PLACE, AND NOW THERE’S A HUGE PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION!! Ahren just saved himself from a huge superplex! This is really close, both Elitists are on the top rope! Minerva just hit Ahren with a punch, but now Ahren did the same to Minerva! Minerva now with a headbutt, but Ahren sends one back in return! Both Elitists are going back and forth- BUT AHREN FINALLY GETS THE UPPER HAND AS HE PUSHES HER OFF THE TOP ROPE! Minerva lands on her feet, BUT AHREN GOES FOR A DIVING DOUBLE AXE HANDLE!
Rich Russillo: DEVIL’S TOUCH! HOW DID MINERVA JUST DO THAT!? THE DEVIL’S TOUCH, KICKING AHREN OUT OF THE SKY!! MINERVA DROPS DOWN FOR THE COV- WOAH WOAH WOAH!! TERRY CHAMBERS TOSSES MINERVA AWAY FROM AHREN! MINERVA GETS BACK UP, AND TERRY GOES FOR ANOTHER RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE ON MINERVA BUT ONCE AGAIN SHE MANAGES TO AVOID IT! MINERVA SURELY HAD THE MATCH WON RIGHT THERE, BUT TERRY’S FOUND HIS WAY BACK INTO THIS!
Persephone: This is kinda a close fight right now, and that’s really unfortunate. Terry just needs to grab her and like crush her to death or something. You can win by crushing your opponent to death, right?
James Peters: Well, you can win by submission. I don’t think Minerva will make it that easy though! As soon as Terry landed Minerva hit him with a huge scissor kick! Terry isn’t taking too long to get back up though! Already he’s getting back to a knee, and Minerva’s just punching and pounding away at the Barbaric Carnivore! Minerva grabs Terry now, AND SHE SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! MINERVA NOW PULLING TERRY DOWN INTO A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP, AND THAT MIGHT ACTUALLY BE IT!
James Peters: TERRY MANAGES TO KICK OUT, BUT MINERVA HITS HIM WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! Terry is down to all fours, AND MINERVA GOES FOR ANOTHER SCISSOR KICK- BUT TERRY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! TERRY GOING FOR THE MOMENT OF SILENCE- BUT MINERVA CONNECTS WITH A BACK ELBOW! Minerva is backed into the corner, AND TERRY CHARGES IN- BUT MINERVA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, CAUSING TERRY TO ONCE AGAIN GO SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE POST!
Rich Russillo: Terry just fell out of the corner and onto the mat this time though! I’m gonna be honest, I feel like this match is about to come to an end! Minerva is just barely in this one, but Terry Chambers is down and she realizes this! Minerva’s getting back up before quickly heading to the corner, AND SHE GOES FOR THE HELL’S BELLS ON TERRY CHAMBERS- WAIT! WAIT NO! IT DOESN’T CONNECT THIS TIME, TERRY ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY!
Persephone: Was he just playing Possum… Or what?
James Peters: To be honest, I’m not sure! Either way Terry just avoided the Hell’s Bells, and now he’s getting back up to his feet as quickly as he can! This is what Terry’s been waiting for! One more opportunity for the EAW Championship! He said he knew he could beat Ahren and Minerva, and it looks like he may have been right! Terry’s lifting Minerva onto his shoulders, and this time she’s not fighting at all! I don’t think she has anything left in her! AND THERE IT IS! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE T-5 CONNECTS!!! TERRY NOW GOING FOR THE CO-
Rich Russillo: STORYBOOK ENDING!!!!! STORYBOOK ENDING!!! I THOUGHT AHREN WAS OUT! AHREN JUST CURB STOMPED TERRY CHAMBERS, HOW DID HE JUST PULL THAT OFF!?
James Peters: AHREN MUST HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RECOVER AND WAITED FOR HIS MOMENT WHILE MINERVA AND TERRY WERE FIGHTING! TERRY JUST NOW HIT MINERVA WITH THE T-5! HE WAS THREE SECONDS AWAY FROM BECOMING NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, BUT NOW AHREN GOES FOR THE COVER ON TERRY AFTER HITTING THE STORYBOOK ENDING SEEMINGLY OUT OF NOWHERE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. AND THE NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP…. AAAAHHHHRRRREEENNNNNNN FFFFOOOOUUURRRNNNIIEEERRR!!!!!!!
James Peters: That may have been as close as Terry possibly could’ve come to being number one contender, but just like that Ahren took it away from
Persephone: It’s Terry Chambers. You sure Minerva wasn’t gonna kick out again?
James Peters: Not one hundred percent sure obviously, but if Terry had any shot of winning throughout the match it was right there. He was close, but Ahren Fournier managed to pull it off in the end! Neither Minerva nor Terry Chambers are exactly easy competition, so congratulations to Ahren Fournier for being able to pick up such a win!
Rich Russillo: You guys know what this means, right? Just a few nights after moving forward in the Grand Prix, Ahren Fournier has become number one contender to the EAW Championship! Imagine if Ahren’s able to win both the Grand Prix and the EAW Championship! He can become a double Champion!
Persephone: Ahren holding just one title sounds funny. Him? A DOUBLE Champion? :mjlol: Sure.
James Peters: Well, nonetheless this was a big win against his former Brand Warfare partners. I guess we’ll just have to see where he goes from here.
(‘Starboy’ hits, and the virtual crowd begins to boo as Ahren Fournier slowly makes it back to his feet. He has a grin on his face as the referee raises his hand, and he soon pulls it away so he can celebrate becoming the new number one contender on his own. Minerva and Terry Chambers in the meanwhile are still unconscious, laid out after what happened in the final few moments of the match. As Ahren continues celebrating his big win tonight, Voltage fades away from ringside for the final time.)
