(EAW intro plays.)
(A recap of last weeks Voltage begins to play. The highlight video starts with Sienna Jade and Myles’ confrontation at the beginning of the night. The recap then shows SOSA Henderson reacting to the three videos from Ahren Fournier, Minerva, and Terry Chambers. Next, the recap shows Lisa Wren defeating Ben Roth in a singles match, before Ben would attack a referee before being pulled away. The recap then shows Donovan Duke and Mr. Jacobs’ talk, before Lisa Wren was found unconscious after an attack by Azrael. The recap then shows Shane Gates defeating Azrael, before the match between Sierra Bradford and Korey Gaines, which Sierra won after interference from both Parental Advisory and Harper Lee. The recap then shows Drake King and TLA’s confrontation, which ended with TLA taking Drake out. The recap then shows Myles defeating Donovan Duke, and Sienna Jade defeating Candice Blair before Kensingten Calhoun-Astor would attack Candice. Ms. Extreme and Drake King’s match would be next, which Shane Gates would interrupt before putting the locker room on notice. The recap then shows Darcy May Morgan and Malcolm Jones’ talk, before Darcy would defeat TLA with Drake King’s help, before Drake would attack TLA until Darcy pulls him off. Next, the recap shows SOSA Henderson defeating Kasey Kaos. Finally, the recap shows the triple threat between Terry Chambers, Minerva, and Ahren Fournier for number one contendership for the EAW Championship, which Ahren won with a Storybook Ending on Terry.)
(The recap ends 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, plays after a moment, the camera cuts to the broadcast booth where James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone 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 Tsitsipas! We’ve got one hell of a night planned!
Rich Russillo: We sure do! After all we’re on the road to Wicked Games, and the matches we have in store tonight are nothing short of amazing! I mean, we have Ahren Fournier and Sienna Jade in the main event, as well as another Grand Prix match!
Persephone: It sucks. All of it sucks because Rex McAllister isn’t on the show. I just want to see people dying, Rexy, or both.
James Peters: Come on Persephone, Voltage is stacked with talent and I’m sure tonight will be nothing short of amazing! You really have to lighten up a bit.
James Peters: Alright, I tried.
(The camera fades to the ringside area. The ring is set up for the GOAT Show, with the ring filled with hay as well as other props and even animals running around to give it the same farm feel as usual. Sitting down in his throne in the ring is Ahren Fournier, and he has Jennipurr on his lap, his usual sunglasses on his face, and a microphone in his hand. The virtual crowd is booing, pretty heavily too, but Ahren doesn’t seem to care as he has a grin on his face anyway. As the virtual crowd quiets down, Ahren Fournier begins to speak.)
Ahren Fournier: Ladies and gentlemen…. Welcome to the GOAT show :blessed: !!
(The virtual crowd begins booing again, but Ahren claps for himself before finally beginning to speak.)
Ahren Fournier: Glad you all are excited, this is a very special episode :wow: ! Last week I beat Terry Chambers and Minerva to become number one contender for soon to be MY EAW World Championship, so while we’re in the mood it’s only right that I help educate you all!… Since let’s face it, you people aren’t very smart.
(Once again, the virtual crowd begins booing, and this time the booing lasts longer than before. After about fifteen seconds of nonstop booing the crowd quiets down, allowing Ahren to speak again.)
Ahren Fournier: Rude. I was just being honest. Anyways as I was saying, I’m going to help educate you all, and I will do that by teaching you all exactly why Soda fucking Henderson shouldn’t be EAW Champion! To be honest I could really go all day with this. There’s probably more reasons than I could count, but I’ll keep it short for you. The first and most important reason why Soda should not be Champion is one everyone could’ve guessed since literally everyone said it since Soda challenged Rex in the first place! The first reason why Soda shouldn’t be Champ is because he isn’t qualified! Soda Henderson isn’t qualified to be EAW Champion, and everyone keeps saying it over and over because it’s true! Look at the guy. I literally beat him back at Bloodsport and it wasn’t even that hard. Well, who hasn’t beaten SOSA at this point? There’s a reason I’m in the main event this week, and why I have my own talk show and he doesn’t. I’m the star around here, I have all the qualities that make a good Champion and Soda has none of them. His matches are boring. His promos are trash. He’s not a star at all. So with that said, there you go! Reason number one why Soda Henderson shouldn’t be EAW Champion, he’s not qualified!
(The virtual crowd remains silent for the most part, with a few boos here and there.)
Ahren Fournier: Alright, time for reason number two, although I’m sure you all know this one already! Reason number two why Soda Henderson should not be EAW Champion, he didn’t deserve the Championship in the first place! Soda got lucky when he won the EAW Championship, nothing more needs to be said. Everyone knows it, and everyone in that triple threat I won believed the same thing. Once again, ‘cause it’s true. Soda got lucky just winning the title, and you think he’s actually gonna successfully defend the thing? Pffft. Soda may have gotten lucky against Rex, but I’m no Rex McAllister. I’m way better. That was a pretty obvious one, so that’s it for reason number two!
(Ahren gives himself his own round of applause once again, meanwhile more members of the virtual crowd begin to boo.)
Ahren Fournier: Now the third reason why Soda Henderson should not be EAW Champion… I’m literally right here! Soda should not be anywhere near a World Championship when I’m on the same brand as him! I’m way better than “SOSA” in every single way, it’s honestly embarrassing to even try to compare him to me. He’s Soda Henderson, and I’m the best wrestler on Voltage! There might not be enough words to describe how trash Soda Henderson is. Like, he’s so bad. There’s a reason nobody expected him to win the title in the first place. Now he’s not even gonna make it past his first title defense. What a loser. Ah well, no shame in losing to me. Sure I’m in a way different league from Soda, but that’s because I’m me! Like, am I the GOAT or what?
(The virtual crowd boos, but all of the goats in the ring Baah at the same time in response to Ahren, putting a smile on his face.)
Ahren Fournier: Thank you! Thank you! And you Jennipurr, what do you think of me?
(Ahren lowers the mic towards Jennipurr.)
Jennipurr: Meow meow meow, meow meow. Meow :wow:. Jennipurr agrees that Ahren is the GOAT and next EAW Champion, and thinks SOSA Henderson’s title reign is in danger anyway because even if Ahren doesn’t win, there’s always a chance SOSA will just disappear again :wow:.
Ahren Fournier: See, you get it Jennipurr! So glad I have you all supporting me. Soon I will become EAW Champion, and Soda’s short lived reign of terror will come to an end-
(Just as Ahren was looking to finish speaking, ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits to a pretty mixed reaction. SOSA Henderson soon walks to the stage and down the ramp with a microphone in his hand and the EAW Championship on his shoulder. He doesn’t look too happy, and very quickly begins speaking.)
SOSA Henderson: Iight, you can run your mouth all you want, but I’ll be damned if I let a pussy talk all this shit about me.
(SOSA then looks at Jennipurr and makes a throat slashing gesture, causing Jennipurr to back down. Ahren looks absolutely horrified that SOSA would do such a thing, and he sits her down before standing face to face with SOSA.)
Ahren Fournier: Um… What the fuck? How dare you? I hope you enjoyed your trash title reign while it lasted, I vow to make you regret ever threatening Jennipurr like that.
SOSA Henderson: You may have gotten the better of me back at Bloodsport, you’re not doing it again at Wicked Games though.
Ahren Fournier: I-
SOSA Henderson: Wait, what the fuck? Why’s my leg warm?
(SOSA looks down, and it turns out Jennipurr just peed on his pants leg. SOSA looks furious, and looks down at the cat before looking back up at Ahren.)
James Peters: OH! SOSA WENT TO HIT AHREN WITH THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, BUT AHREN JUST DUCKED IT! PROTECT YA NECK!!! AHREN FOURNIER JUST TOOK SOSA HENDERSON DOWN WITH THAT HUGE CLOTHESLINE!
Rich Russillo: If Ahren’s able to connect with that at Wicked Games, he may become a two time EAW Champion!
Persephone. How far that title’s fallen..
(Ahren Fournier picks up Jennipurr, and as ‘Starboy’ begins playing again, Ahren exits the ring while cuddling her. The two make their way backstage with SOSA still in the ring, and finally Voltage begins to fade away from ringside.)
(Commercial for Limmy Monaghan’s new smoothie shop. The smoothies are surprisingly good, you should try one.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ring area where Bella Braxton is standing by. She’s ready to announce the competitors for the very first match of the evening!)
Bella Braxton: This singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Ich Will’ by Rammstein starts playing as a fresh superstar came out for his match. It is “Rotten” Ben Roth. This match will be a test for him. To prove that he is ready, he needs to win this match. He needs to show his haters that he is actually in the company for a reason.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, billed from Soweto, South Africa, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is “ROTTEENNNNNNNNNNN” BEN ROTH!!!!!
Persephone: He is still here. How?
James Peters: He has talent, we shouldn’t argue over and over again on why Ben Roth is in the Voltage roster.
Rich Russillo: And he’s going to stay with us for the rest of his career!
Persephone: I don’t know if that is going to be exciting.
James Peters: His opponent also needs a win since he wants to show his opponents that he is not someone that they can mess with.
(It’s time for the next competitor, ‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy kicks in. The crowd begins cheering as Donovan Duke, Ben Roth’s opponent makes his way out to the stage, and before long he makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring, not wanting to waste any time. He is ready for tonight. All fresh!)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent…. from Stillwater, Oklahoma, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is the Oklahoma Gentleman, DONOVAN DUKE!!
James Peters: Speaking of both men, we need to remember that they did have some kind of moments with Azrael. Ben Roth lost in a decent encounter while Duke lost with Azrael! They are all related but why am I pointing this out?
Rich Russillo: Let’s just hope that there is no Azrael interfering tonight. Maybe this match will be better without any distraction from Azrael and Mr. Jacobs.
Persephone: Maybe this match will be better if it didn’t even exist.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Both men wanted to start the match nicely, with Donovan Duke offering a handshake to Ben Roth, and Ben Roth accepted it but he instead responded with a slap to Duke’s face! Duke felt insulted and he pushed Roth to the turnbuckle, that’s a huge push!
Rich Russillo: Duke with a couple of elbows to the face of Ben Roth, before throwing him to the middle of the ring and he went with a headlock! Of course, the good ol headlock is used during the start of the match as a signal for us to know if the match is going to get good.
James Peters: Ben Roth with multiple punches to Donovan Duke’s guts, finally got him to let him go. Now, Roth has the upper hand as Duke’s head is getting grabbed. Roth with an elbow to Duke’s head before throwing him to the ropes, Duke ran to the ropes, Roth with a Clothesline, Duke ducks and a German Suplex out of nowhere!
Rich Russillo: BEN ROTH LANDED ON HIS OWN TWO FEET, HE CHARGED TO DONOVAN DUKE AND DUKE GRABBED THE ROPES TIGHT AND ROTH ENDED UP FLYING TO THE OUTSIDE!! Duke went fast, TOPE CON HILO!!!!! DUKE QUICKLY THROWS ROTH TO THE STEPS BUT ROTH JUMPED, TORNADO DDT!!!!! ROTH THROWS DONOVAN DUKE BACK IN!
James Peters: Ben Roth went to the top rope, waiting for Donovan Duke to get up, DUKE IS UP, MISSILE DROPK- HIS ATTEMPT FAILED AND DUKE WENT WITH A POWERBOMB! Duke now, with control over Ben Roth’s legs sees the corner next to him, SLINGSHOT THROW AND BEN ROTH LANDED ON HIS FACE!
Rich Russillo: Not just that, Donovan Duke with another attempt at doing the German Suplex, but he failed again as Roth’s elbows got in his eyes, Roth tried going for a DDT, but Duke pushed him to the ropes, and that’s a quick chop to his chest!
James Peters: Duke throws Roth to the ropes, DROPKICK ATTEMPT BUT ROTH HELD ON THE ROPES AND DUKE LANDS FLAT! LIKE A PANCAKE!
Persephone: This is the brand that won the Brand Warfare match at Territorial Invasion and their commentators just made a pancake reference on their shows?
Rich Russillo: We probably got too excited. Ben Roth grabs Donovan Duke’s leg and he is ready for a Boston Crab, IT’S ALMOST LOCKED IN BUT DUKE PUSHED HIM AWAY USING HIS LEGS! As Roth is seen grabbing his face, Duke did a kip up! Impressive showing! Duke quickly locked Ben Roth back into headlock mania! Ben Roth is trying to resist right now, as he is seen countering the headlock. Duke went running to the ropes, Duke with a shoulder block to Ben Roth, Roth landed on his back but he also did a kip up and there you go, a staredown!
James Peters: And they are starting an elbow war!!!! DONOVAN DUKE WITH AN ELBOW! BEN ROTH WITH HIS! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! DUKE THROWS ROTH TO THE ROPES, AND ROTH BOUNCED FROM THE ROPES, HEADBUTT TO DUKE!!!! ROTH GRABBED DUKE BY THE HEAD, DUKE PUSHED HIM TO THE TURNBUCKLE! Duke with an attempt for a Stingers Splash, Roth escaped, ROTH WITH A CORNER DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: ROTH WENT WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! And Roth managed to throw Duke out of the ring! He went outside and a RUNNING CLOTHESLINE IS EXECUTED! Ben Roth is posing in front of the virtual crowd, he is confident! HE IS GOING FOR A BIG BOOT. DONOVAN DUKE IS UP, RUNNING BIG BOOT BUT DUKE ALREADY FALLS BEFORE THE BOOT COULD EVEN LAND ON HIS FACE!
James Peters: BEN ROTH QUICKLY GOT HIM UP AGAIN, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!!!! ROTH THROWS DONOVAN DUKE BACK INTO THE RING, CAN HE DETHRONE THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN?!!!! Ben Roth with an elbow drop but he missed Duke and he landed on nothing!
Rich Russillo: They are both going to the corners to assist them so that they can stand up. However, Roth got some energy for some reason and he did a Stingers Splash! Roth is kicking Donovan Duke’s legs right now! He is ruthless! Roth now once again, is trying to Duke locked in another headlock again!
Persephone: Is this going to be the battle of the headlocks? It looks like that’s the only thing that these two can do!
James Peters: Duke throws Roth to the corner, Roth jumped to the turnbuckle, Jumping DDT, FAILED AS DUKE PUSHED ROTH! ROTH WITH A CLOTHESLINE, COUNTERED BY DUKE, GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!! WOAH, AM I LOOKING AT THIS CORRECTLY? ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX! FOURTH GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!
Rich Russillo: This is pretty interesting. Duke throws Roth to the ropes, Clothesline! Standing Moonsault! MISSED AGAIN! BEN ROTH WITH A QUICK ATTEMPT AT BOSTON CRAB, AND HE LOCKED IT IN!!!!! DUKE IS STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW! HE MIGHT TAP OUT! OH MY GOD, IT IS TIGHT! BEN ROTH IS ALREADY NODDING HIS HEAD, THIS IS HIS MOMENT, DUKE GOT NO CHOICES, HE ATTACKED ROTH’S HEAD USING HIS RIGHT HAND!
James Peters: IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S WORKING, DUKE GOT HIM TO BE DIZZY, HE GOT HIS LEGS, DUKE REVERSED THE MOVE AND TURNED IT INTO HIS OWN, DONOVAN DUKE LOCKING ON A SHARPSHOOTER!!!!! THIS IS PRETTY INTERESTING LIKE I SAID! BEN ROTH LOOKS LIKE HE IS GOING TO GIVE UP! BUT HE GOT NEAR TO THE ROPES, SO CLOSE. SO CLOSE, HE GOT THE ROPES!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke is smacking his head right now. He is furious! DUKE QUICKLY GRABS BEN ROTH, BIEL THROW!!!! DONOVAN DUKE, QUICK WITH A NELSON LOCK!!!! WAIT, WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?! SO, BECAUSE OF THE WEIGHT, THEY ARE BOTH ALMOST DOWN, AND BEN ROTH QUICKLY ROLLED TO THE FRONT AND THIS ACTUALLY COUNTS AS A PINFALL?!!!! REFEREE IS COUNTING!
Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!! THR-
James Peters: Kick out from Donovan Duke and Ben Roth went outside of the ring! He is looking…… shocked? What happened right there? Oh god, what is that! A mask that represents the face of Azrael is seen on the steps! Are we having demons now? What is this, an anime?! Ben Roth is getting flashbacks to his previous encounter with the devil, Azrael and his brother, Mr. Jacobs.
Persephone: He is too distracted.
Rich Russillo: DONOVAN DUKE WITH A SHOOTING STAR PRESS OUT OF NOWHERE SENDING BOTH MEN DOWN!!!!! DONOVAN DUKE IS ON A KILLING SPREE!!! He sees the Azrael mask, he grabs it and he quickly throws it out like it was something that he shouldn’t care about! He threw Ben Roth into the ring as he rushed into the ring as well, ready for the final blow! HE WENT TO THE TOP ROPE, BLAZE OF GLORY TO BEN ROTH, DUKE WENT FOR THE COVER. THIS COULD BE IT!!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. DONOVAN DUKE!!!!
James Peters: A very impressive showing from The Oklahoma Gentleman. I am sure that Azrael is watching and so is Mr. Jacobs.
Rich Russillo: They aren’t going to let him go out of the mind games that they’re playing so Azrael is probably happy that we get to see the anger inside Donovan Duke tonight.
(‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy is playing as the referee is raising Donovan Duke’s hand. Donovan looked more fierce than usual, as Ben Roth is still seen lying in the middle of the ring. Donovan Duke walked out, with a very serious look on his face.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial for Ancestry.Com featuring Elitists Candice Blair and Ms. Extreme.)
(As Voltage fades back to ringside, ‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day begins to play, causing all of the virtual fans in attendance to cheer.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome Ms. Extreme!
James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage! As you can see, we are now being joined by Ms. Extreme.
Rich Russillo: Something tells me she’s not going to take too kindly to Shane Gates getting involved in her business last week.
Persephone: It’s Shane Gates though. It’s not like he matters :mjlol:
(Soon after Ms. Extreme walks out to the stage and immediately begins walking down the ramp, and she doesn’t look too happy. She has a microphone in her hand, and as she enters the ring she soon begins to speak.)
Ms. Extreme: Gates, you are one dumb motherfucker. You just made the biggest mistake of your life last Sunday. If you wanted a match with me that bad you could’ve just asked. Instead you stuck your nose in business that didn’t involve you and ruined my match with Drake King. I was this close to winning that match but you just had to get involved. You would’ve been better off attacking Sienna Jade again because now you have to deal with me. I’m not the bitch you want to make an example out of, Shane. You’re fucking with the wrong person right now and if I were you I’d quit while I was ahead, because you really don’t know what you’re getting yourself into. I don’t know if you enjoy being humiliated and embarrassed, but you keep picking fights with people on a way different level than you and it ends the same every time. This time will be different, but only because what I do to you once we get the chance to face each other will be way worse than anything you could ever imagine. Of all people that could’ve interfered in my match to try and make a name for themselves.. Shane Gates? Really? I’m sick and tired of all these Voltage newbs trying to make a name for themselves at my expense. First it was Adam Lucas, who I made a star after beating him at Bloodsport. At Territorial Invasion me and Kasey put each other through hell, I gave just as good as I got, and now she’s one win away from becoming Specialists Champion. Clearly I’ve got the magic touch or something, because everyone who finds themselves in the ring with me has their stock immediately elevated. I’m consistently turning these rookies into the next big thing. That’s GOATmille for you, turning everything I touch into gold. Just facing me is enough to make you a star, and now it looks like Shane Gates wants in on the action.
(The virtual crowd begins to boo at Shane Gates’ name, after Shane ruined the match between Ms. Extreme and Drake King last week on Voltage. Ms. Extreme stays quiet and listens to all of the booing in amusement, before finally beginning to speak again.)
Ms. Extreme: Not gonna lie, I’m not sure if I can even do anything to save Shane’s pathetic career. You all saw what I did for Kasey Kaos and Adam Lucas, but Shane Gates is an entirely different beast. Shane Gates is nothing, has always been nothing, and will always be nothing. I can’t make someone like Shane Gates a star, that’s just not possible, even for me. Shane was born to be a fucking loser, and he’s done a really good job at being one. Sienna and Adam Lucas completely outclassed Shane at Territorial Invasion but what I do to him is going to be so much worse, and to be honest I’m actually pretty excited. That National Elite Championship match is gonna pale in comparison to what I do to you Shane, and do you want to know why? I talked to Captain Charisma, and he’s giving me my Halloween themed match, and that match is…. A GRAVEYARD MATCH :blessed: !!!!
(The virtual crowd begins cheering at the announcement, especially because a graveyard match is not a very common type of match. This is something very new and it’s clear that the fans share the same excitement for the match stipulation as Ms. Extreme.)
Ms. Extreme: I hope you’re ready Shane, this is what you asked for. If you want to try and make a name at my expense, this is your chance to do it. Come Wicked Games, I’m gonna bury the fuck out of you and make you regret the day you decided to fuck with Ms. Extreme.
(The virtual crowd begins cheering once again, but that doesn’t last very long as ‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence suddenly starts up. The crowd immediately shifts into boos, and Shane Gates begins walking straight down the ramp as Ms. Extreme tosses her microphone to the side.)
James Peters: Oh no, Shane Gates is running right to the ring- BUT AS SOON AS HE ENTERS THE RING MS. EXTREME GOES AFTER HIM! MS. EXTREME IS PUNCHING AWAY AT SHANE, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S TAKING THEM! SHANE GRABS CAMILLE’S HAND, BUT NOW CAMILLE KICKS SHANE IN THE MIDSECTION! CAMILLE NOW RUNNING THE ROPES- AND GATES GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT CAMILLE MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER IT! CAMILLE REBOUNDING OFF OF THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES- JUST TO RECEIVE A HUGE BIG BOOT FROM SHANE!
Rich Russillo: Oh man, Shane is picking Camille up in a powerbomb position- BUT CAMILLE IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT NOW! CAMILLE IS PUNCHING AWAY AT SHANE, AND SHE MANAGES TO GET OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS! CAMILLE PUNCHING AWAY AT SHANE AND SHE NOW HAS HIM BACKED INTO THE ROPES! I can only imagine how mad Camille must be at what Shane did, like she said it’s like multiple upcoming Elitists have been trying to make a name for themselves at her expense!
James Peters: SHANE MANAGES TO PUSH CAMILLE AWAY FROM HIM! Camille charges right back after him- BUT SHANE LIFTS HER UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE! Shane immediately follows behind, and this can’t be good for Camille! We need to get someone out here quickly to break this up! Shane is picking Camille up, AND HE GOES TO SEND HER INTO THE RINGPOST- BUT CAMILLE TURNS IT AROUND AND SENDS SHANE FACE FIRST INTO THE POST! CAMILLE GRABBING SHANE, AND NOW SHE RAMS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE BEFORE CONTINUING TO PUNCH AWAY AT HIM! This might have been a bad idea by Shane, Camille’s clearly been waiting for the chance to get her hands on him!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, WAIT WAIT! SHANE MANAGES TO POWER CAMILLE BACK UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, AND HE POWERBOMBS HER ONTO THE RING APRON! SHANE JUST POWERBOMBED CAMILLE ONTO THE APRON, SHE HAS TO BE OUT RIGHT NOW! SOMEONE NEEDS TO COME BREAK THIS UP BEFORE THINGS GET EVEN WORSE BETWEEN THE TWO!
Persephone: It looks a little too late for that.
James Peters: Oh God, I think Persephone might be right! Shane is dragging Camille over towards the steel steps, and she’s clearly out right now after that powerbomb! She can’t defend herself from this! Shane’s lifting her head over one of the pointy corners of the steps, AND NOW HE JUST SLAMMED HER INTO IT! SHANE SLAMS CAMILLE’S FOREHEAD INTO THE CORNER OF THE STEPS, BUT HE DOESN’T STOP THERE! SHANE SLAMS CAMILLE’S HEAD ONTO THE STEP OVER AND OVER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE BLOOD’S BEGINNING TO SPILL OUT HER FOREHEAD!
Rich Russillo: Oh thank God, there’s the officials! They might be a bit too late though, the damage is already done! The officials are pulling Shane away from Camille as a few others go tend to her, meanwhile Shane looks like he’s seeing red!
Shane Gates: (off-mic) IT’S YOU! YOU’RE THE ONE WHO’LL END UP WITH REGRETS AFTER WICKED GAMES IS DONE, AND YOU’RE SIX FEET UNDERGROUND!
James Peters: They need to hurry and get him out of here, this man is insane!
Rich Russillo: If this is what they’re doing to each other now, I can only imagine what’ll happen at Wicked Games.
(‘Overlord’ begins to play again as the officials take Shane Gates backstage, meanwhile a few of the remaining officials are helping Ms. Extreme, who has blood trickling down her face after the brutal attack from Shane Gates. As Shane is taken to the back and the virtual crowd boos as loudly as they can, Voltage begins to fade away from ringside.)
(The best show reopens and fades into a scene that was filmed earlier in the week.)
[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER THIS WEEK ]
(The scene opens at the home of Lisa Wren who is still recovering from some injuries that she suffered at the hands of Azrael last week. She sits on her bright flowery couch, lots of pictures of different African Large Cats behind her. There are some small statues around her, as she is convalescing some, wearing a long sleeve buttoned shirt, knee length skirt, belt leggings, black boots, strips of leopard/cheetah spots fabric around her forehead, wrists, elbows, and knees. She sits up, rubbing her hands together, before her eyes glare into the camera…)
Lisa Wren: I don’t know what the hell I did to deserve this. Like can someone please answer that for me without some bullshit such as wElL tHiS iS vOlTaGe?? I come and compete every single day, I punch the clock, I train hard, workout, do whatever I can in my second season of EAW, yet the losses keep piling up and I’m like quicksand, you know? The more I struggle, the more I sink, and then here I am minding my own business, isn’t bad enough that I couldn’t enjoy my victory over Ben Roth, suddenly I get attacked by that fat, ugly ass monster, Azrael for what? Because he’s mad over some match at Territorial Invasion? Because he has some weird blood fetish? Because he wants to be all spooky and edgy now?? Because I am some victim now, I can’t even enjoy and have a victory lap, right? Well let me tell you something right now, if you think for one minute that I am going to allow some big weirdo who needs to be toted around by his brother to put me down, then you better think again, because I will stand up right to his face and slap the taste out of his mouth before I put him down for good. He isn’t going to get away from this attack, I will promise you that, which is why I am sitting home now and not there competing. Then came Donovan Duke and stopped the assault….
(Her frustrations are obviously spilling over, when she slowly turns to her right, the camera shows some Get Well Flowers by Donovan Duke with a huge card and a little Teddy Bear that is wearing an American Bandana and Vote 2020 T-shirt. Staring at it for a minute…)
Lisa Wren: Donovan Duke, The Oklahoma Gentleman was nice enough to send me some really pretty flowers and this cute little bear, with a big card that had all kinds of nice things to say about me. How sweet and…..
(Suddenly she grabs the flowers and slams the vase on the floor shattering it on impact, Lisa then reaches down and grabs the Bear, spitting on it before throwing it half way across the room slamming into one of her Cheetah pictures, knocking that off the wall too. Reaching down, she grabs the flowers and rips them apart before slamming them back on the floor.)
Lisa Wren: I am no damsel in distress! I don’t need some short white man coming to my rescue, like literally ever! Donovan Duke, you need to stay out of my business forever! Besides, don’t ever tell me to vote because I am Canadian! You people need to fix your own country. Anyways! I will be back on Voltage next week, but more than that, I will be at Wicked Games where I will be taking on Azrael and Donovan Duke in a triple threat! This ends and you two will be the ones laid out! I’m walking away with the win, period!
(Trembling in anger, Lisa Wren glares into the camera as the footage cuts then transitions to backstage at Voltage as Molly Waters stands with Donovan Duke who just watched the footage with an arched eyebrow, speechless. Molly clears her throat.)
Molly Waters: We just saw Lisa Wren’s response to the attack by Azrael last week and of course you were being so kind, sending her flowers and such. She also mentioned Wicked Games, and a Triple Threat match, your thoughts?
Donovan Duke: My thoughts? Other than shaking my head over Lisa throwing away the flowers. Molly, I honestly don’t know why she is always so uptight, plus I was doing what any decent person would do and that is try to help keep a bad situation from escalating, we saw how she was last week, it was a pretty brutal scene, I was only doing what any good hearted person would do.
Molly Waters: Do you regret now what you did last week?
Donovan Duke: Regret? No, of course not. I don’t regret stepping in and yes, I am aware of the match now booked for Wicked Games. Quite frankly Molly, I am looking forward to the match and getting a free-per-view win, and if that means I have to go through Lisa Wren and Azrael, then so be it. I feel good after beating Ben Roth earlier in the evening. It felt great to get a win after coming up short the last two weeks. Drake King and Myles are two of the best on Voltage, and I really wanted to get the victory over both of them. It didn’t work out, but I made sure not to get discouraged, but I won’t lie. I’m glad to be taking home the winner’s purse tonight. Ben Roth is a tough guy and….
(Before he can say more, the sound of chains can be heard. Azrael is seen walking up to them and Molly takes off running, not wanting to be in the monster’s path. Donovan doesn’t flinch standing right up to the beast, but Azrael quickly strikes him in the face, Duke staggers and Azrael grabs him by the neck and picks him off his feet launching him right into the wall! Duke crumbles to the floor, but Azrael is not done, he lifts up Duke again in a Gorilla Press and throws him into a sea of production crates. Jacobs walks up after Donovan is in a heap and shakes his head.)
Mr. Jacobs: I warned you, I tried to be nice and give you the benefit of the doubt, but instead you didn’t listen and now we are here. Let that be a very telling lesson. Good day.
(Mr. Jacobs pulls Azrael by the chain as the camera focuses on Donovan Duke who is slowly stirring as officials run out to help him.)
(Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial for Jake Smith’s tape measurers. It skips from 5’9” to 6’0” so it’s not very useful but someone will buy it.)
(‘Girei’ by Yasuharo Takanashi plays over the PA System and the monster known as Azrael makes his way onto the stage. Walking behind Azrael is his brother, Mr. Jacobs.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Hailing from The Warehouse, weighing in at 290 pounds, accompanied by Mr. Jacobs….AZRAEL!!!!!
James Peters: Here comes Azrael and you can just feel the mood change in the World 1 Theatre. It’s like Azrael has cast a frightening spell on the virtual fans here. This man’s aura is nothing but scary.
Rich Russillo: No kidding. And if you ask me, I’d hate to be Azrael’s opponent tonight. TNT is certainly gonna have his work cut out for him. Azrael may be the most dangerous he’s ever been at this point in time. I mean, did you see what he did to Lisa Wren?
James Peters: He left her in a bloody heap backstage, I mean, we had EMTs transporting Lisa Wren to the hospital. And that was not even the end of this madman’s path of destruction. Moments ago, Azrael attacked Donovan Duke who will be one of his opponents for Wicked Games. Azrael, Donovan, and Lisa are set to square off in a triple threat.
Persephone: I don’t get why this B movie horror villain is so mad. He’s the reason why they lost. He attacked his own partner AND took the pin. :dahell:
James Peters: There’s some people you just can’t reason with and Azrael is one of them. I mean, look at that man. Are you looking to go talk to him?
(‘Girei’ by Yasuharo Takanashi soon fades out and is replaced by ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ by Living Tombstone as TNT begins making his way to the ring to receive a loud ovation from the virtual audience.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent! Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, weighing in at 136 pounds, he is DY-NO-MITE!! T!!!!!!!! N!!!!!!!! T!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Prominently known for his work in the BBB division. I hate to say it but TNT might be out of his depth tonight. I mean, Azrael plans to FEAST on this man’s blood. I don’t think TNT has even registered the danger that he’s in.
Rich Russillo: He’s certainly gonna realize once the bell rings. But don’t sleep on TNT, upsets CAN happen in the world of professional wrestling. And TNT may pull out a big upset here if he plays his cards right and somehow, someway finds a way to slay the monster we call Azrael.
Persephone: Gee, I sure am excited to watch a redneck and a wannabe horror villain have a match. :wow:
James Peters: One of these days he’s gonna hear you and it won’t be a good day for you, Persephone.
Rich Russillo: I’ll protect you, queen.
Persephone: If that’s the case, I hope he hears me. So he can take Rich out for good. :blessed:
Rich Russillo: :mjcry:
(‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ by Living Tombstone fades out and both men are standing in their respective corners, waiting for the match to start.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
TNT: Where I come from, we shoot creatures like you, boy!
Rich Russillo: :mjwhat:
James Peters: I’m just gonna pretend like we didn’t hear that as TNT EXPLODES OUT THE CORNER TO DELIVER A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF AZRAEL! BUT WAIT- AZRAEL SEEMS TO BE UNFAZED! IF ANYTHING, THAT BLOW BY TNT SEEMS TO HAVE ONLY MADE HIM EVEN MORE ANGRY!! RUN, TNT, RUN!! :damn:
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL HAS GOTTEN AHOLD OF TNT AND HE JUST BIELS HIM INTO THE CORNER! THE POWER AND THE STRENGTH OF AZRAEL! Now Azrael is on the offensive as he delivers impactful strikes to the face and the body of TNT. Azrael is really laying in those punches as TNT has slumped in the corner, but that’s not gonna stop Azrael. As he begins stomping a hole in TNT. Azrael has now begun choking TNT with his foot in the corner, ref is gonna have to get in the middle of this. If Azrael doesn’t release, he could be disqualified.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV-
James Peters: Azrael finally takes his foot off the neck of TNT, and in turn, releases the choke before the five count. Azrael backs off from TNT, meanwhile, TNT has regrouped in the corner trying to get his wits about him. BUT AZRAEL COMES BACK AND JUST AVALANCHES TNT WITH A SPLASH IN THE CORNER!! TNT HAS FALLEN OUT OF THE CORNER! AND AZRAEL AS LAUGHING AS THE MONSTER IS CLEARLY HAPPY WITH HIS HANDIWORK SO FAR! Talk about evil…
Persephone: Can Michael Myers just finish off Joe Dirt already?
Rich Russillo: I think Azrael has the opportunity to but he isn’t gonna stop just yet. He is gonna continue punishing TNT. Azrael may not be done until that ever so apparent bloodlust he has is quenched tonight.
Persephone: I don’t care about his “bloodlust,” I care about my time which he is wasting so far.
James Peters: Oh, will you cut it out? I’m not gonna end up lying in a pool of my own blood because of something YOU said on commentary. :lupe:
Rich Russillo: Meanwhile in the ring, Azrael just deadlifts TNT up for a snap suplex! Mr. Jacobs seems to be pleased as to how well his brother is doing. It’s been all Azrael since the start of the match. But now, what does Azrael have planned now? He’s hoisting TNT up to the top turnbuckle…and he’s climbing up there with him…seems like Azrael could be looking to deliver a top rope superplex of some sorts. But it seems he’s meeting some resistance by TNT. TNT just hangs on to the top rope every time Azrael tries to Suplex him down to the mat. TNT, now delivering some blows to the stomach and chest area of Azrael. The demon has loosened his grip on TNT! TNT is continuing to fight as he delivers a HELLACIOUS CHOP which echoes throughout the entire arena. AND TNT HAS SUCCESSFULLY PUSHED AZRAEL DOWN TO THE MAT!! THE MONSTER IS DOWN, BUT FOR HOW LONG?! TNT NEEDS TO USE THIS MOMENT WISELY!! IT LOOKS LIKE TNT IS PERCHING HIMSELF ON THE TURNBUCKLE NOW! WHAT IS TNT COOKING UP?!
James Peters: TNT SOARS TO THE SKIES AND DELIVERS A FROG SPLASH TO AZRAEL!!! TNT MAY HAVE THIS ONE IN THE BAG, ALL HE HAS TO DO IS COVER HIM!!….AND TNT DOES JUST THAT AS THE REF GETS INTO POSITION!
Referee: ONE! TW-
James Peters: AZRAEL MANAGES TO POWER OUT AT TWO!! I SWEAR THIS MAN IS NOT HUMAN! TNT is in shock that Azrael was able to power out so easily but TNT isn’t gonna waste any time. He continues the attack and lays in some heavy punches to the masked face of Azrael while he is still downed. Azrael isn’t allowing this for long though as he grabs the face of TNT and just forces him off of him. Azrael is looking to get back to his feet. BUT LOOK! TNT is back on the attack and he connects with a basement dropkick to the skull of Azrael! TNT ONCE AGAIN SCRAMBLES FOR THE PIN!!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL KICKS OUT AT ONE! Azrael begins making it to his feet again, but TNT looks to connect with a DDT! AZRAEL LIFTS TNT UP FROM THIS POSITION THOUGH, AND POPS TNT UP IN THE AIR!! TNT LANDING FACE FIRST ON THE CANVAS! TNT had the big man down for a bit, but not for long. Azrael approaches TNT who grabs him by the belt and sends him flying to the outside through the middle rope! Great ring awareness from TNT!
James Peters: TNT has been doing his fair share to try and put an end to Azrael this whole match up! He’s been finding new ways to avoid defeat at the hands of Azrael every time! Maybe in part due to Azrael, as he’s had many chances to finish TNT off but has passed in doing so and it may just come back to bite him.
Rich Russillo: But then you gotta think, is TNT sticking in this match for so long a good thing or a bad thing? Cause we know about that temper and if Azrael gets out of control, that spells out bad things for TNT. And who knows? Maybe the whole Voltage roster cause he may not just stop at TNT. But TNT has slid out the ring to pursue Azrael.
TNT: Cmon boy! I got you right where I wants ya!
James Peters: TNT is looking for Azrael but I think he’s as perplexed and confused as the rest of the EAW audience because where IS Azrael? He seems to have disappeared. TNT has been looking all around the ring area and is STILL unable to find him.
Persephone: Now he’s disappearing, does he know every horror movie cliche in the book?
James Peters: :skip: TNT is now confronting Azrael’s brother, Mr. Jacobs. Questioning if he knows where Azrael disappeared off to. Mr. Jacobs is assuring TNT that he does not know where Azrael went. TNT turns around to look ringside again BUT IS CAUGHT WITH A STERN KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY THE REAPPEARING AZRAEL! WHO I THINK I JUST SAW SLIP OUT FROM UNDER THE RING APRON! AZRAEL THEN PROCEEDS TO CHUCK TNT INTO THE BARRICADE! AZRAEL GRABS TNT BY THE HAIR AND SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST WHICH SENDS TNT SPIRALING TO THE FLOOR! THIS IS THE EXACT AGGRESSION AND ANGER I WAS TALKING ABOUT THAT WE COULD SEE FROM AZRAEL! I THINK THE PREDATOR REALIZES HE’S BEEN PLAYING WITH HIS PREY FOR FAR TOO LONG AND AZRAEL COULD BE LOOKING TO FINISH THIS IN A MOMENTS NOTICE! AZRAEL LIFTS A DAZED TNT UP IN THE AIR FOR A GORILLA PRESS AND JUST TOSSES HIM IN THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA!!! Azrael then slides into the ring and is Azrael gonna attempt to win by count out??
Rich Russillo: Mr. Jacobs is at the barricade, peering over into the timekeeper’s area at a downed TNT. You can tell by the look on Mr. Jacob’s face that he knows this match is in the bag. More money could be coming to him and Azrael in just a minute. TNT is trying to beat the referee’s count though, who’s currently at 5.
James Peters: TNT has made his way to ringside and is using our announce table to help bring himself back to his feet. Azrael notices that TNT may have a chance to break the count and heads back outside to the ring! Although battered and bruised, TNT lunges at Azrael AND ATTEMPTS A HURRICANRANA! BUT AZRAEL SHUTS THAT DOWN IMMEDIATELY BY CATCHING TNT IN A POWERBOMB POSITION!! AZRAEL SLAMS TNT DOWN ON THE APRON WITH A THUNDEROUS POWERBOMB!! THAT’S THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! SO MUCH FOR A COMEBACK FROM TNT! TNT IS SCREAMING IN AGONY AS AZRAEL ROLLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING! I THINK THE SHARK SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER!
Persephone: Thank God, I’m actually rooting for bargain brand Freddy Kruger over here so he can finally finish this garbage ass match. :blessed:
James Peters: :wow:
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL SETS TNT UP FOR A MOVE WE’VE SEEN BEFORE! AZRAEL GRABS TNT AND CLUTCHES TNT BY HIS THROAT AND CONNECTS WITH THE DEMON PUNCH!!!! TNT HAS TO BE UNCONSCIOUS AT THIS POINT!
James Peters: AZRAEL WASTES NO TIME AND PUTS TNT IN THE LAST BREATH!!! THAT MANDIBLE CLAW IS LOCKED IN!! TNT IS FLAILING, HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO!! TNT IS TAPPING!! HES TAPPING OUT!!! THE REFEREE SIGNALS FOR THE BELL!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…AZRAEL!!
James Peters: TNT did his best, but he was just no match for the strength of Azrael. Who I’m sure just sent a message to the entire Voltage roster, and washed the bad taste out from his mouth after his loss to Shane Gates.
Rich Russillo: You got that right! Azrael once again showcasing he has a bright future here on Voltage. And when this monster is on the loose again, I’d hate to be his opponent.
Persephone: He wasn’t as impressive as you guys are playing him up as. He was ok. I’m just glad this match is over.
(Azrael celebrates in the ring alongside his brother. Who pats him on the back for a job well done, as the two head to the back with TNT lying in the ring, still downed after the dominance displayed by Azrael in their match.)
(Voltage fades into a promotional ad for Wicked Games)
(Voltage fades back in from break, and cuts to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome ‘The Last Messiah’ DRAKE KING!
(‘This is Your Life’ by The Dust Brothers & Tyler Durden begins to blast across the sound system and the virtual fans watching begin to jeer. White smoke begins to fill the stage and the godly gold lights ascend down from the heavens. A few moments later, Drake the Redeemer steps through the smoke, his white robes billowing around him and he has a smile on his face.
Drake King: :blessed:
(In his left hand is a manila envelope and after posing for his subjects for a few more seconds, Drake begins to make his way down to the ring.)
James Peters: Things have really reached a new level between Drake King and TLA. Last week, TLA sent Drake a warning shot, telling him not to get involved in the match TLA would have later on that night against Darcy May Morgan.
Persephone: And of course this little shit didn’t listen at all. He handed Darcy the victory over TLA, and then attacked him after the fact. TLA wasn’t really able to mount much of a defense against Drake in that moment, not that I really give a shit if TLA gets beat up or not. But I’m sure TLA cares about how it all went down, and no doubt Barbed Wire Massacre is getting more interesting by the minute.
Rich Russillo: There have been rumors swirling around this week that Drake’s main goal is to get TLA to quit this company. He seems to have a huge issue with TLA and the way he carries himself, to the point where he wants to make sure TLA has no future at all in EAW. I’m not sure how well that’s going to go over, but I’m interested in what Drake has to say.
(Drake has gotten into the ring and accepted the microphone from Bella. He blesses the ring announcer before sending her on her way, and a huge smile has crossed his face. He waits until his music fades out before he begins to speak.)
Drake King: Hi.
(The virtual crowd isn’t in the mood to give Drake a response. That doesn’t take the smile off his face though and Drake waves the manila envelope in the air.)
Drake King: I hope all of my EAW Universe brothers and sisters are doing well tonight! I pray each and every single one of you have enjoyed Voltage so far. It is such a blessing to be here on Sunday nights, and get a chance to spread my message of hope, love, and happiness to each and every single one of you, but I have to admit it felt good to return to my old stomping grounds and compete with Sister Darcy this week on Dynasty. As you all witnessed, we put the Mile-High Club out of the Grand Prix tournament and advanced ourselves, and I am thrilled about that. Sister Darcy deserves to win the Grand Prix Tournament and have a chance to become part of a Unified Tag Team Championship winning team, and whatever I can do to help her with that, I can. That being said, I’m on my own mission, and that mission is to get rid of the cancer known as TLA.
(At the mention of TLA’s name, the crowd pops. A disappointed look crosses Drake’s face.)
Drake King: I will never understand the popularity TLA has managed to garner, and why you guys insist on cheering on a glorified criminal. TLA has done nothing for this company except drag its good name through the mud. We have a list of people who have been stricken from the history books due to nefarious activities and other things, and I just find it hard to believe that TLA has been allowed to stay here for as long as he has, when he is guilty of disgusting things himself. It makes me sad that someone who’s been fired before, and for good reason I’m sure, was allowed to come back as part of EAW’s merger with REVOLT, but thankfully I have a chance to rectify that by ending TLA in Barbed Wire Massacre once and for all. Now this type of match is not something I would normally condone, however I feel like it’s necessary when you consider who will be inside of it with me. I wish it didn’t have to come down to this, because we have all seen this match change the competitors who’ve participated in it. Charles Marr…
(Drake visibly shudders at the mention of Marr’s name.)
Drake King: Charles Marr has not been the same since suffering at the hands of Brother Malcolm back at Pain for Pride. Prior to that, Charles had ended Daryl Kinkade inside of this very match, and arguably destroyed the rising momentum of Ms. Extreme when he faced her and nearly took her foot as a souvenir. Rex McAllister and Impact faced off against one another in the very first installment of this match and Rex proved himself unable to handle the adverse conditions, thus forcing all of us to watch as Impact celebrated another world championship win. Thankfully, that ended up being very short lived, even if Impact’s usurper is now on the list of banned individuals, but my point remains. This match never ends well for anyone involved, and as much as I want to destroy TLA and eradicate him from his business, I still feel compelled to show him a bit of mercy and give him a chance to leave peacefully. No more videos from that brothel he’s so happy to promote. No more championship opportunities that he doesn’t deserve. TLA has used this company, my EAW, as his own personal playground for too long. It stops now, or it stops at Wicked Games. The choice is up to TLA because in my hand are resignation papers. All TLA has to do is sign these papers and walk away from EAW as a free man. It’s that simple, and pretty generous of me when you consider this monster struck me with a leadpipe last week. It was an unprovoked assault and I hated having to get my hands dirty after Sister Darcy got an incredible win last week, but so be it. My job as your Messiah, your saving grace, was never going to be easy. I know of the burden I have placed on my heavenly shoulders, and I can only hope that TLA does the right thing tonight.
(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” by Tupac invades the sound system as the virtual fans begin to cheer through their monitors. A loud honking noise is heard as Drake covers his ears as TLA makes his way down to the ring in a long black lowrider. TLA climbs out onto the hood sliding across as he makes his way to the ring holding his lead pipe and pointing it directly at Drake.)
Drake King: :whoa:
(TLA slides into the ring and makes a beeline towards Drake King who throws the envelope onto the table and backs away telling TLA to back off him.)
Drake King: Stop! Stop right there! There will be no more of your criminal activity here tonight!
(TLA laughs as he tosses the lead pipe to the ground and steps up to Drake. TLA puts his hand out motioning for Drake to hand him the microphone however Drake hands him the envelope filled with resignation papers instead.)
Drake King: Let’s end this like responsible adults. It is time to grow up and cut the cancer out of EAW and you can be a part of that. Let’s get this over with quickly and painlessly.
(Drake reaches into his pocket and pulls out a long white pen and holds it up for TLA to grab. TLA walks up to Drake and laughs as he steps right in front of him looking at him directly in the eyes. TLA raises up his hand to take the pen an-)
James Peters: TLA just spit right in Drake King’s face!
Rich Russillo: That is absolutely disgusting! Look at Drake’s face!
Persephone: I agree it is disgusting. Unless Rex wants to spit on me that is.
James Peters: :skip:
(The camera gets a close up shot of Drake King scowling as he wipes a large dripping loogie off his face. He shakes off his hand trying to get it all off him but can’t get it all out of his hair. As he is wiping himself off TLA swoops in to reach down and grab the microphone from him.)
TLA: Ayyy callate pinche puto! It is my time to talk now cabrón!
(The crowd cheers as Drake King is shown wiping his hair off with a towel.)
TLA: Escúchame I am out here tonight for one reason and one reason only. That is to tell you to go fuck yourself and go fuck your resignation papers. Last week I stepped up to you and I sent you a warning… de hombre a hombre. But unsurprisingly yo bitch ass went and ignored that warning. That means that all bets are off holmes. I’m going to beat yo ass ese!
Drake King (off mic): No! Wait TLA stop! Hold up!
(Drake King is shown demanding another microphone from ringside as he nonchalantly tosses the spit covered towel onto the head of the ring crew member handing him the microphone.)
Drake King: You don’t understand. I am making EAW a better place. I saw what will happen. You have to go! You can’t be here anymore! Sign the papers! You can even have them after you are done. I heard Kensingten backstage saying that you don’t have any papers so this can be my early Christmas gift to you!
(TLA reaches down to pick up the lead pipe again.)
Drake King: No.
(Drake King walks over to TLA and takes the lead pipe and sets it back on the mat. Drake takes the long white pen and puts it into TLA’s hand wrapping his fingers around it. Drake pats TLA’s hand lovingly before guiding him over to the envelope of resignation papers.)
TLA: :skip: !!!
Drake King: There there. I am a loving Messiah and will help you out. Come on I will even show you where to sign. Look right here I filled everything else out for you. I couldn’t find out what your real name is or any of that but it should be good enough. You just need to sign here… here… and here as well.
TLA: Ayo I will stab you in the eye with this pen you don’t let go of me right now pendejo.
Drake King: I know it is hard but it will be a lot harder if you remain.
TLA: Fuck off.
(TLA shoves Drake King back causing the resignation papers to fall down to the mat. Drake quickly scoops them back up and puts them back into the envelope. He reaches down and slides it across the ring to TLA while keeping a distance.)
TLA: Yo you want me to sign this shit? You really want me outta here?
Crowd: NO! NO! NO!
Drake King: Yes! Yes! Yes!
TLA: Did I hear you correctly before dawg? Did you really come out here and refer to this place as “my EAW”? You want to come out here and insult me because I am supposedly a glorified criminal, you got a problem with me running the Poon Palace, you want me out the company and you want me to be fired once again this time for good. You think you can come out here and tell me what to do and tell me who I am. You think you can play judge, jury, and executioner. But the problem is that you ain’t el jefe… Pero mi gente… these people these great EAW fans watching live all over the world streaming live right on in to watch me beat yo ass at this very moment. Ellos son EL jefe. You are just one voice of many and Drake I got news for you bruh… you just ain’t that important. As far as I am concerned they call the shots. Not you! That means I am not about to quit now, or ever, and I am going to see yo bitch ass at Wicked Games. Imma beat the shit outta you and yo culo gonna get cut up so bad you gonna wish you never got cut up so bad. Imma ride on in on my lowrider. Got bitches on my side you know the fiesta ain’t never stop. The Poon Palace gonna be open 24/7 and whether you like it or not. Now how about it? Y’all wanna see me whip Drake King’s gringo ass all over New Jersey?
Crowd: YES! YES! YES!
Drake King: No! No! No!
(Drake King is beside himself at this point tearing out his hair. Drake kicks TLA’s lead pipe out of the ring to the floor. Steroid Dawg is shown emerging from beneath the ring and grabbing the lead pipe in her teeth like a bone before sliding back underneath.)
Drake King: Shut up! Shut the heck up! I tried to be nice! I tried to help you all! I tried to help EAW! But you wouldn’t listen! You just fed into this man’s selfishness! Why the heck does he have to work here? All he had to do was sign the papers! That’s it and EAW would be saved from him! But you people clearly don’t want to be saved. You don’t. But I will save you anyway! At Wicked Games… I wanted this to end peacefully but now clearly it is going to have to end a different way. But I will end it one way or another! I wil-
TLA: Ay tranquilo homie you gettin’ all worked up. No need for that hostility holmes. How about you hand me that envelope dawg.
Drake King: I will kil- wait what?
(A smile forms on Drake King’s face as he reaches down to the mat to pick up the envelope. He walks over to TLA and hands them to him.)
Drake King: I knew that even criminals could see reason. I know you are a cancer to EAW but maybe at least it is not brain cancer. You still have some rational thoughts in your head. I am glad I could get through to you. Now let’s sign these papers and finish this. Together.
TLA: Wait hold up. I got my own pen I want to use. Imma do this my way.
Drake King: Of course of course. Whatever makes you feel more comfortable.
(TLA reaches into his hoodie pocket and begins digging around looking for something. Suddenly he pulls out another lead pipe this one with even more pointy edges and blood stains than the last one.)
Drake King: :whoa: !!!
TLA: Oh my bad forgot that I had a spare.
(TLA tosses the lead pipe over his shoulder to the mat and keeps on digging. TLA produces a roll of barbed wire, some weed, brass knuckles, a woman’s lace panties, an explosive chancla, and a bag of dog treats as he tosses each of them over his shoulders.)
Drake King: Is this a joke?
TLA: Nah nah I forgot I had these. Hold up imma get it.
(TLA reaches deep down into his hoodie pocket with nearly his entire arm going in making Drake wonder just how deep that pocket really is. TLA eventually pulls out a long large black pen making Drake smile once more.)
TLA: Ayyy a huevo yo I found this shit. Iight let’s do this.
(TLA holds up the papers as he takes them out and looks them over. TLA has a very serious expression as he squints his eyes reading every line.)
Drake King: I assure you it was done properly. I was very thorough. There can be no mistakes regarding something as important as you leaving EAW forever.
Crowd: NO! NO! NO!
Drake King: Shush you.
TLA: Iight so I just sign here?
Drake King: Yes. Please. Do it. DO IT!
TLA: Iight imma do it.
(TLA presses the button on the end of his pen as suddenly a massive flame bursts out the end of the pen engulfing all of the papers in flames.)
Drake King: NO! NO!
(TLA drops the flaming papers as they burn to ashes on the ring mat. Drake King tries to stomp out the fire with his foot but it is too late. The papers have been completely destroyed.)
TLA: Jajaja that’s too bad dawg. Guess I ain’t signing shit after all.
Drake King: How could you do this? You… fricking… motherfricker…
(Drake King charges at TLA throwing his fist at him but TLA ducks underneath it by dropping to the mat and rolling out of the ring. TLA is shown walking up the ramp smirking at Drake King who is in the ring looking floored and seething.)
TLA: Ayo one more thing homie! You say that I be turning EAW into my personal playground… well at Wicked Games we gonna be playing my favorite game yet! Mark my words puto! Imma send yo ass right on back to the Dead Sea to be reborn again!
(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” takes over the sound system once again as TLA climbs back into his lowrider standing up on the seats to celebrate with the crowd. TLA uses the hydraulics to bounce up and down to the music as Drake King is shown raging in the ring. Drake is shown picking up the various weapons that TLA left in the ring and mumbling various threats under his breath as TLA begins to slowly reverse out of the arena.)
James Peters: I guess that means that TLA will not be resigning from EAW after all! That means the Barbed Wire Massacre will be taking place! These men’s very lives will be at stake!
Persephone: Well I wasn’t that interested but when you put it like that…
Rich Russillo: This match has clearly become very personal for both of these men who want to destroy the other completely! We may see one or both of these men completely destroyed at Wicked Games! This match ends careers and with the hatred they have for each other I don’t like to think about what could happen! We are going to see murder plain and simple at Wicked Games! Be sure to tune in everybody!
(The camera cuts to a commercial featuring the Canadian Experience guy who melted down on Twitter. He is shown crying about how EAW has ruined all of his favorites who were brought up from NEO only to become jobbers on the main roster. He announces that he will no longer be watching EAW from now on because pro wrestling has been an important part of his life for 15 years. He insists he is not taking things too seriously before turning around and watching an episode of Voltage.)
(Voltage fades back in and shows Jesse Barlow, Korey Gaines, and Hannah Marin settling in at ringside.)
Bella Braxton: The following singles contest 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. Both Sierra and Harper make their way down the ramp already eyeing Parental Advisory who are at the Commentary booth already.)
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 REIGNING AND DEFENDING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…’THE GIRL ON FIRE’…SIERRA!!!! BRADFORD!!!
Jesse: I’ve been saying it, and will continue to. These bitches, The Realm or whatever the fuck, they’re on borrowed time with those Unified Tag Team Championship belts. It’s a forgone conclusion, and after the shit they pulled last week you’d better believe they wouldn’t be getting let off the hook that easily.
Hannah: What happened last week was a fucking fluke. This basic bitch, Sierra, should not be able to tout a victory over Korey, over Parental Advisory right now. I hate that things didn’t go differently, but-
Korey: we’ll make amends, not to worry at all guys. I still believe in what you two are doing, and I’m all in if it means taking my career to another level starting with those Unified Tag Team straps coming to Parental Advisory.
(‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day hits the p.a. System in the arena as Ms. Extreme appears on the stage, looking determined and focused. She looks shocking well after suffering a horrific attack earlier tonight at the hands of Shane Gates. Her forehead has been stitched up, covered with a bandage, and she’s walking it off like the goat she is :blessed: She then starts toward the ring, walking with a purpose, per usual.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…From Calabasas, California… She weighs in at ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE POUNDS…She’s ‘THE RED QUEEN’….MS!!!!!!!!!!!! EXTREME!!!!!!
James Peters: As I’m sure you’ve heard, we have Parental Advisory joining us for this matchup. It’s Ms. Extreme going up against Showdown’s Sierra Bradford, who came away a winner last week, Rich.
Jesse: Nah, hold your tongue, Richy Rich Rich! What happened last week, like Hannah said, was a complete fluke, it was bullshit! That virgin bitch Harper, she gets in our again, we’ll put her down again! She should’ve just kept to herself and let it be what it’s gonna be, but she couldn’t leave well alone so she better just watch her ass!
Hannah: I couldn’t have said it better.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell has rang and both Ms. Extreme and Sierra Bradford are wasting no time moving in on each other, and now they lock up! Sierra immediately with a go around, she’s behind Ms. Extreme now who is reaching for the ropes but Sierra Bradford is preventing her from reaching them. Sierra is looking for a German Suplex but it’s being blocked by Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme decides to use her momentum to push Sierra back into the corner, Sierra still holds on from behind! But Ms. Extreme forces the action and Sierra’s back is jarred against the corner turnbuckle. Sierra comes stumbling out of the corner, here comes Ms. Extreme with a clothesline, but Sierra avoids the contact and immediately rushes the ropes and looks for lariat!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme ducks the attempted lariat and Sierra is forced to hit the breaks before she meets the ropes on the opposite side! She spins around but has no time to react this time and is stunned by a dropkick from Ms. Extreme that knocks her down to the canvas! Ms. Extreme mounts Sierra and begins to pound away with vicious punches to the skull of Bradford, precise lefts and rights!
Hannah: I hope Sierra gets the shit beat out of her tonight, not even gonna hide how much I wish for her downfall!
Jesse: Nah, fuck that! Don’t be encouraging that cumsucking bitch Camille either. She’s an Ava, so we all know she’s entitled and stuck up.
Korey: I’m with Hannah on this one, Jesse. I should have beaten Sierra last week. She got very lucky, no other way about it.
Persephone: I personally don’t see the hype behind either one of them. They’re both boring as fuck! Look at ditz taking those fists trying to act tough by fighting off the redhead.
James Peters: Sierra is able to will her way out of the onslaught of Ms. Extreme, rolling to her side where she uses the ropes to yank herself up! Here comes Ms. Extreme! MS. EXTREME WITH THE TWIST OF FATE! THE SPINNING NECKBRE-
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME GOES FLYING OVER THE ROPES! SIERRA PULLED DOWN ON THE ROPES AND MS. EXTREME’S MOMENTUM JUST CAUSED HER TO TAKE A NASTY SPILL TO THE OUTSIDE! SIERRA TAKES A QUICK LOOK TO MAKE SURE MS. EXTREME IS DOWN! HARPER LEE IS SHOWING HER SUPPORT! SIERRA RACES TO THE ROPES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! SHE USES THE ROPES TO GIVE HER MOMENTUM AS SHE MOVES FORWARD AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR!!!
James Peters: SPRINGBOARD SENTON TO THE OUTSIDE!!! SIERRA LANDS RIGHT ON TOP OF MS. EXTREME!!! SIERRA ROLLS BACK TO HER FEET AND FOLLOWS UP WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT! WHAT AN AMAZING COMBINATION OF MOVES BY THE GIRL ON FIRE, SIERRA BRADFORD!!!
Jesse Barlow: What doesn’t kill her honestly disappoints me.
Hannah: I don’t know about that redhead, Jesse, but I’m fairly certain this Sierra butch’s throat will be below my boot once Parental Advisory has taken those Tag Team belts!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA HAS MS. EXTREME AND SHE TOSSES HER INTO THE RINGSIDE BARRICADE!
James Peters: Sierra has Ms. Extreme by the hair and she sends her back into the ring! You just know Sierra wants to be able to make a huge statement against someone the likes of Ms. Extreme. These opening minutes have been pretty intense so far. Sierra is back inside now as well, and she pulls Ms. Extreme up! Sierra with a quick snap suplex and she goes for the cover!
Rich Russillo: Kickout by Ms. Extreme! Sierra is staying on her though! Sierra now mounts Ms. Extreme and begins throwing blow after blow to Ms. Extreme’s face and she pulls the former Pure and Interwire champion up by the hair! Sierra whips Ms. Extreme into the corner and charges forward! She nails Ms. Extreme with a devastating corner clothesline and follows it up with shoulder thrust after shoulder thrust! Sierra switches to stomps and she forces Ms. Extreme down into a sitting position! Sierra is on fire and she’s running around the ring right now!
Korey: She’s soon gonna be running smack down into a tag team wrecking ball in myself and Jesse! The Realm won’t know what hit them once we put their little fairytale reign to an end.
James Peters: SIERRA WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE!!!!! MS. EXTREME FALLS BACK AND IS STUNNED!!! SIERRA’S GOT MS. EXTREME BY THE HAIR AND SHE’S DRAGGING HER UP! SIERRA RUNS FORWARD AND SHE BULLDOGS MS. EXTREME INTO THE MAT! SIERRA WITH ANOTHER COVER!!!
Persephone: This girl on fire thing doesn’t seem to fit this basic bitch. She doesn’t look a day over fifteen, and she’s now crying to the dude in stripes like one too.
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME IS ABLE TO GET HER SHOULDER UP! SIERRA MOUNTS MS. EXTREME AGAIN AND BEGINS USING HER FOREARMS TO JAB AT THE HEAD OF EXTREME!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme has not been able to really get going since the opening bell and one half of the current Unified Tag Team Champions has looked nothing but impressive from the start! Sierra brings Ms. Extreme back to her feet. She looks to whip Ms. Extreme across the ring but Extreme finally manages to land a blow to Sierra’s jaw! Ms. Extreme halts Sierra’s attempt at sending her across the ring! She takes Sierra by the wrist and torques it, pulling it behind Sierra’s back and sending her to the canvas! Ms. Extreme quickly switches to a side headlock and she forces Sierra’s shoulders to the canvas. Sierra manages to keep one up, however, but Ms. Extreme seems to have found another gear. Extreme tightens the side headlock, but Sierra is able to get her legs up and grab Extreme into a headscissors.
Jesse: Damn, she slipped out and is back on her feet. I fucking hate the Ava’s with a passion. You’d have to be deemed clinically insane to ever want anything to do with that one in particular on any type of emotional level. That bitch is straight crazy.
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme slips out and is right back on her feet! Sierra attempts to get up but Ms. Extreme nails her right across the face with a big boot! Sierra sprawls back on the canvas and Ms. Extreme stomps on her face! Ouch! Sierra grabs her face and turns to the side, but Ms. Extreme isn’t about to let up! She kicks Sierra right in the chest! Sierra rolls towards the ropes where her Realm partner Harper Lee is, but Ms. Extreme grabs Sierra by the ankle and pulls her back to the center of the ring. Ms. Extreme drops a knee down across Sierra’s chest and she immediately goes for the arm.
James Peters: Sierra isn’t having it and catches Ms. Extreme with an elbow to the side of the head! Ms. Extreme immediately retaliates by raining down with some of the most vicious closed fisted hammer shots you will ever see on Sierra! Ms. Extreme pulls Sierra up and nails her with a snap suplex! Sierra grips her lower back and Ms. Extreme is quick to wrap ‘The Girl On Fire’ up in a nasty looking camel clutch! Ms. Extreme is not noted for being much of a submission expert so it does come as a bit of a surprise to see her trying to wear Sierra down in this fashion right now.
Rich Russillo: Sierra is giving it all she has to inch closer towards the ropes. Ms. Extreme is doing her best to keep Sierra from getting to the ropes, but Sierra is able to utilize her instincts and works her way out of the clutches of Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme lets go as Sierra reaches for her leg and she stomps on Sierra’s hand! Ms. Extreme is back up and she begins unleashing even more intensity, putting boots to Sierra’s skull, but Sierra still gets herself to the ropes and grabs reaches out for them! Ms. Extreme let’s up, which surprises Sierra. Sierra pulls herself onto the apron! Ms. Extreme chuckles a bit to herself as she looks on.
Korey: Sierra is gonna need to react a whole lot quicker than that against us, not a bad counter to the headlock with that right hand to the jaw of Ms. Extreme.
James Peters: You called that one, Korey. ‘The Red Queen’ staggers back after that strike by Sierra which allows Sierra a chance to haul herself up using the ropes! Ms. Extreme comes back at her, but Sierra dives through the ropes and catches Ms. Extreme with a shoulder to the gut! Sierra takes hold of the ropes and launches herself over them! SUNSET FLIP! MS. EXTREME’S SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is clever! She instinctively rolls backwards and both women get back up! Ms. Extreme initiates the collar-and-elbow tie-up but it’s Sierra with more power! Unbelievable! She forces Ms. Extreme back into the corner, but Ms. Extreme drives her knee into Sierra’s gut! Ms. Extreme with an uppercut that snaps Sierra’s head back and she follows it up with a nasty clothesline! Ms. Extreme hits the ropes and comes back… dropping her elbow down across Sierra’s chest! She quickly pulls Sierra into a sitting position and now she’s going to town with very stiff kicks!! They are connecting with Sierra’s chest and shoulder and Sierra is in a great amount of pain right now and Harper Lee on the outside shows plenty of concern as she helplessly watches her partner be put through the wringer!
Jesse: Good. That’s a pretty fair preview of what Parental Advisory will be doing to them once we get our shot at them, bet on it.
Hannah: Couldn’t agree more.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme knocks Sierra back with a final kick and she reaches down to pull her up! Sierra is reeling and she manages to catch Ms. Extreme in the jaw with a forearm! Sierra initiates a lock-up! Both women jostle back and forth for positioning, but Ms. Extreme finally just outmuscles Sierra and forces her back into the corner! Neither woman wants to give the other the advantage, and they refuse to break! The referee has to step in there and he finally forces Ms. Extreme to back off.
Persephone: The Little girl takes a step back… BUT SHE JUST SHOVES THE REDHEAD!
James Peters: Sierra has been displaying her aggressive side in this match up, and against someone like Ms. Extreme you kind of have no choice or she’ll straight knock your block off! Ms. Extreme looks pissed and she pushes herself off the ropes. She charges towards Sierra but Sierra ducks the clothesline! Ms. Extreme quickly turns around, and she looks to connect with a spinning heel kick! BUT SIERRA CATCHES THE FOOT!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME TURNS IT INTO A STEP UP DROPKICK! SIERRA GOES DOWN AND MS. EXTREME MEASURES HER DOWNED OPPONENT! QUICKLY MS. EXTREME RUNS AT SIERRA BRADFORD!! RUNNING METEORA!!! JUST AS SIERRA WAS SHAKING THE COBWEBS, SHE’S DOWN AGAIN AND THIS TIME MS. EXTREME RUSHES TO MAKE THE COVER!
James Peters: Sierra kicks out! Ms. Extreme quickly jerks Sierra up and locks her in a side headlock! Sierra is determined to fight her way free and she attempts to break the hold, however Ms. Extreme remains firm, just as determined in her own right to keep the headlock on. Sierra does fight her way back to her feet, despite Ms. Extreme still being in control, and she starts to slam her elbow into Ms. Extreme’s midsection! Ms. Extreme is finally forced to let go, and that allows Sierra to free herself! Sierra hits the ropes and comes at Ms. Extreme with a big boot, but Ms. Extreme ducks! Sierra uses her momentum to jump on the ropes and she uses them as a springboard! She takes Ms. Extreme down with a springboard back elbow!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme quickly scrambles back to her feet but Sierra grabs her by the wrist and takes Ms. Extreme down with an armdrag! Ms. Extreme doesn’t stay down long though, she’s back up, but Sierra with another armdrag! Ms. Extreme gets up once again, AND SIERRA WITH ANOTHER ARMDRAG! Ms. Extreme quickly gets up but she steps back, and halts Sierra in her tracks!
Persephone: Why is the little girl that says she’s on fire motioning for the redheaded step child of her clan to get back up? I wouldn’t be taking that kind of disrespect, I’ll tell you that much.
Jesse: Who cares, I already have half a mind to go in there and put both of their asses in check, especially Sierra after what her and Harper did last week.
Hannah: They just got super lucky last week. Those brass knucks had Sierra and Harper’s names all over them. Korey knows I didn’t mean to hit him.
Korey: Accidents happen, but we’ll redeem ourselves this week count on that.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is learning how tough Sierra Bradford can be to deal with, and Sierra has displayed such an aggression in this contest that I’m sure it’s thrown Ms. Extreme off kilter just a bit in this contest. Ms. Extreme comes right for Sierra BUT SIERRA DIVES AT THE LEGS OF MS. EXTREME! TAKEDOWN AND SIERRA QUICKLY WRAPS MS. EXTREME UP IN A MODIFIED KNEEBAR!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME TWISTS HER BODY AND GRABS FOR SIERRA’S LEG AND SHE MANAGES TO BRING SIERRA DOWN TO THE MAT! MS. EXTREME QUICKLY GOES FOR THE ANKLE-BUT SIERRA QUICKLY GRABS FOR THE NEARBY ROPES!
James Peters: Smart move on the part of Sierra. She avoided getting trapped in a predicament Ms. Extreme was no doubt looking to take the vertical base out from under Sierra, but now has no choice but to break as Sierra latches onto the bottom rope. With Harper Lee continuing to shout encouragement Sierra uses the ropes to bring herself up! Ms. Extreme gets a running start and flies at Sierra, but Sierra is able to get her foot up! It connects with Ms. Extreme’s jaw and Sierra pushes herself towards Ms. Extreme! She grabs Ms. Extreme and sends her flying across the ring with a snapmare! Ms. Extreme gets up but Sierra is relentless! Ms. Extreme is able to knock Sierra back with a diving calf kick to the face, but Sierra manages to evade the follow up forearm, and she grabs Ms. Extreme around the waist! Sierra scoops Ms. Extreme up, bounces her off the ropes, and DDTs her and her face eats the canvas! Sierra doesn’t go for the cover! She pulls Extreme up and sends her to the corner turnbuckle where she goes crashing hard, and she’s reeling. SEEKING MISSILE! THE RUNNING KNEE BY SIERRA BRADFORD CONNECTS!! THE FORMER INTERWIRE AND PURE CHAMPION IS IN BIG TROUBLE! SIERRA NOW MS. EXTREME ON HER SHOULDERS, BUT MS. EXTREME ESCAPES AND IS BACK ON HER FEET AND SHE SHOVES SIERRA TO THE ROPES THE DIVING CALF KICK AGAIN! NO!! SIERRA AVOIDS IT THIS TIME! SUPERKICK BY SIERRA THAT KNOCKS MS. EXTREME INTO THE ROPES AND SIERRA CATCHES HER COMING BACK! SHE’S GOT EXTREME ON HER SHOULDERS AGAIN!! MISERY BUSINESS!!! THE FIREMAN’S CARRY RIGHT INTO A STUNNER!! WOW!! SIERRA GOES FOR THE COVER! THIS SHOULD BE IT!!
Rich Russillo: And Ms. Extreme shoots a shoulder off the canvas! Sierra brushes a hand through her hair, shaking her head, a bit exasperated at this point wondering what it’s going to take to subdue the ‘The Red Queen’ once and for all.
James Peters: Indeed she’s thrown quite a bit of her patented moves at Ms. Extreme, but Ms. Extreme is no ordinary female competitor, she can take quite a beating if history tells you anything. She’s been in some of the most hellacious matches this company has to offer. She won’t go down easily.
Jesse: Or at all, for one week that is.
Persephone: Thank God! Six is definitely considered more than a crowd, especially when our audience are all logged on from their phones and laptops. Good riddance!
(Jesse along with Hannah and Korey remove their headset no longer wishing to watch the match from the commentary desk. Harper Lee immediately picks up on Parental Advisory making their way to the opposite side of the ring from her.)
Rich Russillo: Parental Advisory has just suddenly up and left our announcer’s table, but the action continues. Ms. Extreme crawls towards the ropes but Sierra grabs her by the leg and pulls her back towards the center of the ring! She goes to pull up Ms. Extreme, but Ms. Extreme hits Sierra with a right hand to the face! Sierra stumbles back and that gives Ms. Extreme an opening! She grabs Sierra by the hair and forces her back into the corner! Ms. Extreme begins punching Sierra in the head! Sierra tries to cover up, but Ms. Extreme is relentless! The referee finally has to step in to start the count, and Ms. Extreme backs off at the count of four!
James Peters: Sierra looks to make her move, wait a second! Korey Gaines has a hold on to the boot of Sierra Bradford! Harper Lee sees what’s going on, she no doubt wants to aid her partner! Ms. Extreme is still arguing with the referee! Hannah Marin grabs Harper from behind, but Harper turns and decks Hannah upside the head and she goes down! Harper turns around! NEVERMORE AND DOWN GOES HARPER LEE! FOR THE SECOND WEEK IN A ROW JESSE BARLOW DROPS HARPER WITH THE RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE JUST AS HARPER WAS LOOKING TO HELP SIERRA! SIERRA JUST SAW WHAT HAPPENED ON THE OUTSIDE AND JUST FREED HERSELF FROM KOREY GAINES’ GRASP! SIERRA IS NOT HAPPY IN THE LEAST TO SEE HER PARTNER DOWN! SIERRA LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOING TO CHECK ON HARPER! WAIT A MINUTE! FROM BEHIND! MS. EXTREME JUST LIFTED SIERRA BRADFORD OFFER HER FEET! SIERRA IS FIGHTING MS. EXTREME OFF! BUT MS. EXTREME IS TOO MUCH THIS TIME! FIREMAN’S CARRY INTO A BRAINBUSTER THAT DRILLS THE HEAD OF SIERRA BRADFORD INTO THE CANVAS! SIERRA LOOKS LIKE SHE’S ALMOST OUT OF IT! MS. EXTREME IS OUT ON THE APRON BUT NOW SHE HOPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND LEAPS OFF! A BLIND FURY!!! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE HEAD OF SIERRA BRADFORD! I DON’T THINK SHE REALIZES MUCH OF WHAT WAS GOING ON AT RINGSIDE, BUT SHE’S NOT TAKING HER CHANCES! SHE NOTICES PARENTAL ADVISORY ON THE OUTSIDE AS SHE SHOOTS THE HALF ON SIERRA NEVER TAKING HER EYES OFF PARENTAL ADVISORY!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day plays throughout the World 1 Theater, and Ms. Extreme immediately picks herself up off the canvas. She gets a glimpse of what’s going on at ringside. Jesse Barlow and Korey Gaines are shown helping up Hannah Marin, who’s holding her head. She appears to be okay.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by pinfall….MS. EXTREME!!!!!
(Sierra Bradford is shown in the ring recovering, holding her head as well but is clearly more concerned for her partner’s well being than she is with the fact that Parental Advisory just cost her the match. Sierra slowly slides out of the ring, as Ms. Extreme steps through the ropes leaving the ring.)
James Peters: A good bout ends in, what else, controversy. In no way do I mean to question this victory for Ms. Extreme, but Sierra Bradford had control of this bout right throughout. Ms. Extreme was taken to task, much to most everyone’s surprise, I’m sure. That is until the end once Parental Advisory left our table after taking their subtle jabs at the competitors in the match, but clearly they had a whole other agenda that went beyond that from the get-go!
Rich Russillo: I’m with you, James. Congratulations to Ms. Extreme on being able to fight throughout the match to hold off the determined ‘Girl On Fire’ Sierra Bradford. Ms. Extreme may be a former Interwire and Pure champion, but Sierra clearly outclassed her for much of the match until, like you stated, Parental Advisory had other ideas, and there’s no doubt that Sierra deserved this one to go her way but there will definitely be other opportunities ahead for this young woman to look forward to.
(The shot at ringside shows Parental Advisory chatting amongst themselves as they head toward the ramp, obviously satisfied with the outcome given that everything they did went pretty much without a hitch. Sierra Bradford is shown helping up Harper Lee, and soon they’re both looking on unhappy to see Parental Advisory taunting them with a gesture of the championship belt around their waist as the show transitions elsewhere.)
(The scene opens with Molly Waters as she has standing next to her is “The Gypsy Moth” Minerva already in her wrestling gear, Hat, glasses, and jacket. It is no secret that this young former Universal Women’s Champion is upset about last week and what happened in the Triple Threat Match to determine the Number One Contender to the EAW World Championship that went to Ahren Fournier. She and Terry Chambers on the other hand now are on the outside looking in and she has a bit of an issue with the narrative.)
Molly Waters: I am here with Minerva, the former Universal Women’s Champion and Survivor at Territorial Invasion. Last week we saw you with a chance to win the Number One Contendership for the EAW World title at Wicked Games against SOSA Henderson, and we all know that you do hold a singles victory over SOSA, but what we saw last week was Ahren Fournier coming in and taking out Terry Chambers after he had you beate…”
(Minerva quickly turns and places her hand on Molly’s face, snagging the microphone from her hand, getting nose to nose with her…)
Minerva: How many times did it take Serena Bennett to hit me with her finisher to win the Universal Women’s Championship? How many times did Darcy May Morgan have to hit me with brass knuckles and a briefcase along with her finishers before she had the CHANCE to take me out? How many pinfalls have I had in the last year here in the EAW? ONE. Everybody including Terry Chambers wants to control the narrative to berate me, he needs this feel good story to give him some semblance of hope that he was close to becoming the Number One Contender to the EAW World Championship, when that has been the tale of the tape the entire time, Molly. Close, always close but no cigar. See, I can relate, for I have also taken some of the best to their limits but the problem is, much like novelty acts in Ahren Fournier, they are sought upon as the top contenders, it is a circle jerk, while Terry and I are on the outside bubble. All you need to do is see how Serena has been praised to prove my point. Terry though? He wants to believe he is better than me and had me defeated, he needs to believe he is better than me and had me defeated, that is the only way he will have any chance of confidence before he breaks down into another EMO rant like he did after Territorial Invasion. I…..
(Minerva tilts her head at Molly…)
Minerva: I’m sorry, did you want to say something?
(The Gypsy Moth places the mic in Molly’s mouth, like literally shoving it in her face.)
Molly Waters: You claim that you could have kicked out, many think you would not have, as you were laid out and couldn’t even break the fall with Ahren, I…
Minerva: You really want to test me, don’t you Molly?
Molly Waters: No, I…..”
Minerva: I am the HARDEST woman to keep down in the EAW, tell me I am wrong?
Molly Waters: No, you are not wrong.
Minerva: Even that worthless Greek shitbag, Persephone said that no one was sure if Terry would have pinned me, she knows and so should everyone else. Terry Chambers wants to brag, let him, in the Grand Prix Tag Team match tonight, Myles and I are going to remind him and TLA what….
(Molly’s eyes widen as Minerva sighs, turning around and looking up at the monstrous Terry Chambers staring down at her. He pulls the mic from her hand as The Gypsy Moth doesn’t back down…)
Terry Chambers: I always knew you talked a lot of shit, I never knew you were full of it too, but if you think that what happened last week wasn’t my chance to win and become the Number One Contender to the EAW World Championship, then maybe even in a tag team match tonight, I will prove it again. We can settle this out there in the ring, and after TLA and I advance, then maybe you will get it through that thick skull of yours that I am and will always be BETTER than you win I hit you with the T5 out there and pin the unpinnable, giving me and TLA the dub and leaving you wondering what is next.
Minerva: Is that so?
Terry Chambers: Yeah, that’s so.
(Minerva looks away, slowly taking off her glasses and hat, dropping it to the floor, she then turns and smiles looking right at Terry’s face.)
Terry Chambers: Remember…. T5….. MINNIE.
(Minerva’s eyes widen as she sprays THE DARK in Terry’s eyes! He is blinded, staggering back as Minerva screams and jumps on Terry, she starts trying to rip his eyes out with her long sharp black nails, he is trying to fend her off when officials come running out, they start trying to pull Minerva off Terry when Myles comes out of nowhere and starts punching the officials for touching her, he grabs one and throws him into the wall, Minerva is still on Terry when TLA rushes out and pulls Minerva off, Myles suddenly tackles TLA down as they fight on the floor. They are both rolling around, holding nothing back, throwing hands, and it’s Minerva who finally gets on top and starts to sink her fingernails into Terry’s blinded eyes. Suddenly more officials run down, they start to separate Minerva and Terry, she screams, trying to claw him, completely losing it as Terry is trying to get to her too, the officials are also separating Myles and TLA, who he quickly goes to Minerva and grabs her, pulling her back as she has now calmed down some in his arms, a blinded Terry tries to fight….)
Terry Chambers: Tonight, you are going down crazy bitch! Ahhh… somebody flush my eyes, fuck!
Minerva: Next time I rip them out!
TLA: POSITIVITY VATOS!
Myles: Shut up mate!
(The officials finally are able to separate them. Minerva grabs her hat and glasses, pushing Molly Waters into the production screen and she falls on her butt, before being pulled away by Myles. TLA checks on his partner as some medical personnel are there to check on him and make sure he is okay to compete tonight.)
(Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(A “Stop Smoking” ad plays featuring various EAW Elitists, but it’s quickly cut off by Bronson Daniels and Justin Windgate.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break, to show Bella Braxton stood in the ring, holding an EAW-branded microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Middle Fingers’ by MISSIO hits the speakers as the virtual crowd erupts in a split of cheers and boos. Korey Gaines walks onto the stage, with two middle fingers raised in the air. He jerks his head back to lower the hood from his jacket, before walking down the ramp.)
James Peters: And here comes Korey Gaines! A man who seems to be finding his footing in EAW recently, with a lot of success hitting him along with his tag partner Jesse Barlow, having formed not too long ago. Tonight he looks to beat Shane Gates, and prove himself worthy of future opportunities.
Rich Russillo: If it was against anyone else then yeah, maybe he’d have a chance, but every week I tell you that nobody can defeat Shane Gates, as by his nickname alone, he proves he’s out to kill.
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, hailing from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma… weighing in at 170 pounds… KOOOOOOOOOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY GAINES!!!
(Korey slides into the ring as his name is called, before he rises to his feet, and stares down the hardcam. He raises middle fingers again, before his theme is interrupted by ‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence. The lights dim, before red spotlights appear on the stage. A hooded Shane Gates begins to walk through them, and as he reaches each light, they cut out, before the final one, where he appears without his hood. He stares up, and grins, before the lights turn back on all together, despite being a tad dark still.)
Rich Russillo: Speak of the devil, here comes Shane Gates! A man who has a lot of talent, and a lot of success that he will earn in the future. And right now, he’s going to squash Korey Gaines like a bug in order to show everyone exactly why he’ll get that success.
James Peters: Branded ‘The Natural Born Killer’, Shane Gates shows everyone exactly WHY he is called that each and every week, after mentally and physically tearing his opponents apart, before laying waste to them time and time again. Could we see the same thing here tonight?
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent, billed from Huntington Beach, California, weighing in at 213 pounds… THE NATURAL BORN KILLER… SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATES!
(Shane climbs onto the apron, before entering the ring. He removes his jacket, and places it at ringside, before shooting a fierce glare over at Korey Gaines, as his theme fades out. Korey appears unphased though, as both men stand in their corners awaiting the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell rings, as Shane Gates and Korey Gaines sprint towards each other! Shane gets the further distance and quicker speed, before attempting a huge big boot, only for Gaines to sidestep and push the foot out of the way! Korey follows up with multiple palm strikes to the jaw, but Shane’s head barely moves, as he follows up with some strikes of his own! They begin to trade back and forth punches, palm strikes, and forearm smashes, in order to make sure one another gets damaged enough so they fall over!
Rich Russillo: They’re playing a nasty game right now, one that won’t pay off for either man! But both of these men want this victory, and both of these men are going to take it. This is going to be a war, for sure! Korey Gaines begins to dodge and weave, using his speed advantage to make sure the strikes don’t land! He slaps Shane in the gut, before in the neck, and he tries to follow up with a head roundhouse kick, but Shane clotheslines the leg back down to the ground, before irish whipping him into the ropes! Korey rebounds, before attempting a hurricanrana – only for Shane to catch him, and quickly drop him with a powerbomb!
James Peters: I don’t think that was a powerbomb, I think that was Korey being too fast for Shane to keep in the air, and accidentally dropping him! But he lifts him up… AND THERE’S THE POWERBOM- NO! KOREY SOMEHOW ROLLS TO HIS FEET BEFORE HE HITS THE GROUND, BEFORE HITTING SOME RAPID KICKS TO SHANE’S KNEE! BUT SHANE GETS HIS FOOT UP TO BLOCK BEFORE ANY LASTING DAMAGE HAPPENS AND-
Rich Russillo: LEAPING KNEE STRIKE TO SHANE GATES’ CHIN! SHANE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE ROPES, BEFORE KOREY CONNECTS WITH A SECOND, ONLY FOR SHANE TO CATCH, AND TOPPLE HIM TO THE OUTSIDE! KOREY HOLDS ON, AND BOTH MEN HIT THE OUTSIDE, ON THEIR KNEES!
James Peters: THEY CRASH AGAINST THE FLOOR, BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM EITHER OF THEM ARE HURT! THEY CRAWL TO THEIR FEET, BEFORE RUNNING TOWARDS EACH OTHER AGAIN! DOUBLE CROSSBODY, AND BOTH OF THEM HIT THE GROUND, HAVING HIT THE SAME MOVE AT THE SAME TIME, BEFORE SLAPPING AGAINST THE MAT! THAT’S ONLY A FEW INCHES COVERING CONCRETE, AND EVEN THEN, THE FORCE OF THE LANDING WOULD HURT THEM REGARDLESS! THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT!
Rich Russillo: BOTH MEN MANAGE TO SLIDE INTO THE RING BEFORE THE TEN COUNT HAPPENS, SAVING IT FOR THEMSELVES! SHANE GATES USES THE TURNBUCKLES TO GET BACK UP, BUT KOREY GAINES KIPS UP TO HIS FEET! HE SPRINTS FORWARD AND HITS A DROPKICK, SENDING SHANE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH HUGE FORCE, NOT TO MENTION HOW THE KICK ITSELF WOULD HURT!
Persephone: I dunno, I’d have to test that logic out for myself. Hey James, get in the ring real quick.
James Peters: :mjwhat:
Rich Russillo: KOREY GAINES BEGINS TO CLIMB TO THE TOP ROPE, AS SHANE GATES RECOVERS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, NOT KNOWING WHERE HIS OPPONENT IS AND WHAT HIS OPPONENT HAS PREPARED! SHANE GROGGILY TURNS AROUND… CORKSCREW CROSSBODY!
James Peters: BUT SHANE GATES COUNTERS WITH A SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE! OH MY GOD, KOREY GAINES CRASHES AGAINST THE MAT, AND SHANE FALLS DOWN TOO, INTO A SEATED POSITION! IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE HE’S DONE THOUGH, AS HE GRABS KOREY, AND LIFTS HIM UP! HE PLACES HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDER IN A FIREMANS CARRY POSITION, BEFORE DRIVING HIM INTO A GUTBUSTER! HE COVERS KOREY HERE, IT COULD BE OVER!
Rich Russillo: KOREY GAINES KICKS OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND, OH MY! BUT SHANE GATES ISN’T ALLOWING HIM TO RECOVER, AS HE GRABS KOREY BY HIS LEGS, BEFORE FALLING BACK! HE SLINGSHOTS KOREY INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT KOREY LANDS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE! HE SUDDENLY MOONSAULTS OFF OF IT ONTO SHANE GATES, TAKING BOTH MEN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: KOREY BOUNCES TO HIS FEET AS HE STUMBLES BACKWARDS TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, BEFORE EXITING ONTO THE APRON! HE BEGINS TO RISE UP THE TURNBUCKLES, BEFORE CLIMBING ONTO THE TOP ROPE, ONLY FOR SHANE GATES TO HIT A SPINNING HEEL KICK, SENDING KOREY BACKWARDS ONTO THE RING POST, THE ONLY THING THAT’S KEEPING HIM ON THE TOP ROPE! SHANE GATES BEGINS TO FOLLOW, SLOWLY GRABBING ONTO KOREY’S ARMS AND HAIR!
Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES HAS SOMETHING PLANNED, AND I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO END WELL! SHANE BEGINS TO CLIMB TO THE VERY TOP OF THE RING POST, AS KOREY IS HANGING OFF THE SIDE… OH MY GOD… SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB TO THE OUTSIDE! BOTH MEN CRASH AGAINST THE MAT AGAIN, DID YOU HEAR THAT THUD??!
James Peters: BOTH MEN ARE NO LONGER MOVING, HAVING TAKEN THAT NASTY BUMP AGAINST THE MAT, AS MENTIONED EARLIER, THERE’S BARELY ANY PADDING COVERING THE CONCRETE! FROM THAT HEIGHT, THAT SPEED, AND THEIR WEIGHT COMBINED, THAT IS BOUND TO HURT REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU LAND!
Rich Russillo: SHANE AND KOREY ARE OUT OF IT, AND THE REFEREE SEES THIS! AFTER GIVING THEM A FEW SECONDS TO RECOVER, AND POSSIBLY GET INTO THE RING, HE STARTS HIS COUNT FOR THE SECOND TIME!
James Peters: BOTH MEN USE OUTSIDE OBJECTS, THE BARRICADE AND THE STEEL STEPS, TO STAND BACK UP!
James Peters: AND THEY SLIDE INTO THE RING AT THE SAME TIME! SHANE GATES LOOKS READY TO STAND UP, BUT KOREY IS FACE DOWN IN THE MAT, CLEARLY LOOKING FOR SOME TIME TO RECOVER! IF SHANE POSSIBLY CAN, HE SHOULD BE SEEKING TO DEAL EVEN MORE DAMAGE IN ORDER TO PUT KOREY AWAY!
Rich Russillo: That’s IF he can recover, that sunset flip powerbomb to the outside really knocked him out of his shoes, and he only entered the ring on instinct by the looks of it. Shane Gates here, using that middle rope to prop himself up, but Korey still hasn’t moved! This is exactly where he needs to be, on his feet, whilst Korey is still out! Shane begins to stumble over to Korey, before underhooking his left arm, and wrapping his own left arm around Korey’s head… he takes him to the corner an-
James Peters: KOREY DRIVES SHANE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! BUT SHANE HANGS ON, AND TRIES TO SUPLEX HIM, ONLY FOR KOREY TO SPRINT FORWARD AND DRIVE HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AGAIN! SHANE’S GRIP LOOSENS, BEFORE HE TIGHTENS IT AND- OH MY GOD! SNAP SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! KOREY GAINES COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND, AS SHANE GATES TRANSITIONS INTO A JACKKNIFE COVER!
Rich Russillo: BUT HE ONLY GETS A TWO COUNT! HIS BACK COLLIDED AT A FAST SPEED AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES, BARELY PADDED, COVERING METAL STUDS, AND METAL POLES, SOMEHOW THAT WASN’T ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM DOWN!
James Peters: SHANE GATES ISN’T WASTING ANY MORE TIME, HE WANTS IT OVER NOW, AS HE GRABS ONTO KOREY’S TIGHTS AND LIFTS HIM UP, BETWEEN HIS LEGS! HE HOOKS HIS WAIST, BEFORE ELEVATING HIM OFF THE GROUND INTO THE POWERBOMB POSITION, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR THE ‘ACES HIGH’?
Rich Russillo: MAYBE HE WAS, BUT NOT ANYMORE, AS KOREY DROPS DOWN TO HIS FEET, BEFORE HITTING A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE! SHANE REMAINS ON HIS FEET, AS KOREY HITS A ROUNDHOUSE! SHANE IS STILL UP! SUPERKICK! SHANE FALLS BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES, BEFORE FALLING INTO A DETONATION KICK! SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE FROM KOREY, KNOCKING SHANE DOWN TO HIS KNEES! EVERY ONE OF THOSE STRIKES RINGED OUT AS THE LEGS SLAPPED AGAINST THE FLESH!
James Peters: SHANE GATES JUST COLLAPSED ONTO HIS KNEES AND HEAD, BARELY MOVING, LIKE A SLUMP IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT KOREY WANTED, CLEARLY, AS HE CLIMBS BACK TO THE TOP ROPE, THIS TIME SHANE CAN’T SEE! OH MY GOD!
Rich Russillo: OKLAHOMA SHOOTING STAR TO SHANE GATES’ BACK! CRUSHING THE SLUMP UNDER HIS WEIGHT, THIS COULD BE OVER! KOREY SLOWLY SHOOTS THE HALF, AND HOOKS THE LEG! IT’S OVER!
James Peters: HOW DID SHANE GATES POP THE SHOULDER UP!? I COULD’VE SWORN THAT WAS IT, SURELY! BUT SOMEHOW HE MANAGES TO DEEP DOWN DEEP, AND FIND A WAY TO REMAIN IN THIS MATCH, AND KOREY GAINES CANNOT BELIEVE IT! HE’S SEATED, AND CRAWLING AWAY FROM SHANE’S BODY, WITH HIS EYES WIDEN OPEN! HE’S QUESTIONING WHERE HE WENT WRONG, AND SHANE BEGINS TO STAND UP-
Rich Russillo: KOREY GETS BACK UP AND HITS A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO SHANE, KNOCKING HIM BACK DOWN AGAIN! HE FALLS INTO ANOTHER COVER, THIS COULD BE IT THIS TIME!
James Peters: NO!! HE KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN, AND KOREY FALLS ONTO HIS STOMACH, BURYING HIS FACE INTO THE MAT, AS HE STRIKES THE GROUND IN FRUSTRATION! WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO KEEP SHANE GATES DOWN FOR THE THREE COUNT HERE TONIGHT?
Rich Russillo: I DON’T KNOW IF HE CAN, JAMES! I DON’T KNOW IF HE CAN.
Persephone: Rex could.
James Peters: KOREY IS SLOWLY USING THE ROPES TO PULL HIMSELF UP, AS SHANE’S EYES GLAZE OVER, BARELY SHOWING ANY SIGNS OF CONSCIOUSNESS!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) Fuck you… fuck you… stay the fuck down… STAY DOWN!
James Peters: HE RUNS FORWARD AND ATTEMPTS A FROGGY FOOTSTOMP, BUT SHANE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! WAS HE PLAYING POSSUM, OR DID HE RECOVER JUST IN TIME!? SHANE RISES UP, BEFORE ATTEMPTING A SPINNING HEEL KICK, ONLY FOR KOREY TO DUCK! SHANE CATCHES HIM WITH A KICK TO THE KNEE THOUGH, BEFORE USING THAT SAME LEG TO DECAPITATE HIM WITH A ROUNDHOUSE TO THE HEAD! KOREY FALLS TO HIS KNEES, BEFORE SHANE FINISHES THE JOB WITH A SHINING WIZARD! ‘BULLET2HEAD’! SHANE COVERS!
Rich Russillo: KOREY PUSHES HIMSELF ONTO HIS STOMACH, ROLLING OUT OF THE PINFALL, AND KICKING SHANE BACKWARDS UNINTENTIONALLY! UNLIKE KOREY, SHANE GRINS! HE KNOWS KOREY IS HURT, AND HE KNOWS HOW TO CAPITALIZE ON IT! SHANE CRAWLS OVER, AND GRABS KOREY BY THE HEAD, BEFORE LAYING INTO HIM WITH FOREARM STRIKES – NOT RAPID ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM DOWN THOUGH! KOREY AND SHANE BEGIN TO RISE BACK UP, CLOBBERING ONE ANOTHER WITH A FOREARM SMASH!
James Peters: BACK AND FORTH STRIKES, AS THEY STAND UP, MAKING SURE THEY PUT AS MUCH POWER INTO EVERY ONE, HOPING THE OTHER WILL ROCK AND FALL OVER! THE STRIKES BEGIN TO SLOW DOWN, AND THEIR KNEES BEGIN TO WOBBLE! WILL EITHER MAN FALL OVE-
Rich Russillo: SPINEBUSTER FROM SHANE GATES! HE QUICKLY RISES UP AND TRANSITIONS INTO A SUPERKICK TO THE HEAD, ONLY TO FALL BACKWARDS, THE ONLY THING KEEPING HIM FROM HITTING THE GROUND IS THE MIDDLE ROPE! HE LEANS ON THAT ROPE, TAKING DEEP BREATHS, AS KOREY HOLDS ONTO HIS JAW, AND ROLLS TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! KOREY DOESN’T SEEM TO HAVE BEEN HIT THAT HARD WITH THE SUPERKICK… OH MY GOD, HE SPRINTS FORWARD… TIGER FEINT KICK! SHANE GATES STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AS KOREY SLOWLY CLIMBS UP ON THE APRON!
James Peters: KOREY LEAPS! SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK, TAKES SHANE INSIDE OUT! BUT KOREY ISN’T ABLE TO RECOVER, AND CRASHES AGAINST THE MAT! HE MAY HAVE LANDED AWKWARDLY, HOLDING ONTO HIS SHOULDER, AS THE REFEREE GOES TO CHECK ON HIM! COULD WE HAVE AN INJURY RIGHT HERE?
Rich Russillo: POSSIBLY! THERE’S NO CHANCE THAT DIDN’T HURT, AND THERE’S AN EVEN BIGGER CHANCE SOMETHING DISLOCATED, OR EVEN BROKE ENTIRELY! THE REFEREE CHECKS ON HIS ARM, AS SHANE GATES BEGINS TO SIT UP! HIS BODY TRIES TO MAKE HIM FALL BACK DOWN AND REST, BUT HE PUSHES FORWARD, AND REACHES THE ROPES! HE MAKES THE LONG JOURNEY TO GETTING UP, BUT THE REFEREE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE CONFIDENT ON THE ARM!
James Peters: SHANE GATES SLOWLY APPROACHES, BUT THE REF BACKS HIM AWAY! SHANE ARGUES WITH HIM, UNAWARE OF THE SITUATION! GATES GRABS THE REF BY HIS SHOULDERS, AND PUSHES HIM AWAY, BEFORE APPROACHING KOREY AN- HE WAS PLAYING POSSUM!? SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP TO SHANE, BEFORE HE PUTS HIS FEET ON THE MIDDLE ROPE!
James Peters: AND THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Middle Fingers’ by MISSIO hits the speakers as the virtual crowd erupts in boos. Shane and Korey both rise to their feet at the same time, before Shane attempts a clothesline, only for Korey to duck, and slide out of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE AERIAL BASTARD… KOOOOOOOOREEEEEEEEEEEEY GAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIINES!!!
James Peters: HE GOT THE VICTORY USING A CHEAP TACTIC, WHICH I DON’T AGREE WITH, BUT IT WORKED!
Rich Russillo: It sure did work, and he’s very proud of himself here tonight!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) I BEAT YOU! YOU SHOULDN’T BE MAD, JUST REALIZE I AM FAR SUPERIOR!
(Korey grins, before raising his arm, and stretching the “injured” one, to show that it was all a rouse. He lowers his arm and gives Shane a middle finger, before Voltage fades to commercial.)
(A promotional ad begins to play featuring Xander Payne, where he teaches you how you can join him in his fight against hoodrats.)
(We return from the break of in-ring action back to ringside to an empty ring, but that’s quickly short-lived as “Diva” by Beyoncé suddenly comes over the P.A. system, sending the virtual crowd into an immediate frenzy! Candice Blair makes her way out from the back, a confident smile on her face as she takes the time to embrace the atmosphere and cheers at the top of the ramp. Coming down the aisle dressed in ring gear, with hair and makeup obviously on point, not a single soul should be surprised that she’s yet to lose her confident stride, more than likely feeling emboldened by her actions just a few days ago on Dynasty.)
James Peters: Just the other week, Candice took on Sienna Jade but the action was cut short by Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, and they have certainly been able to turn up the heat between the two of them!
Rich Russillo: I’d say that’s putting it lightly; Kensingten took her out with a bag of bricks! But somehow, I can’t help but feel that’s the least of Candice’s worries now, after making it known that she wouldn’t let those actions go unpunished!
(Candice comes up the steps, retrieving the microphone that had been placed there by a ringside stagehand and enters through the ropes. The youngest Ava sister takes her place at the middle of the ring, brushing her hair back over her shoulder while her music fades out and it’s only then does she raise the microphone to her lips.)
Candice Blair: There I was last week right here on Voltage, taking on Sienna Jade in a match that I know I had to be so close to coming out on top in, but without even seeing it coming, I was struck down with a purse full of bricks by none other than Kensingten…
(Candice rolls her eyes, partly out of annoyance and surprisingly, she’s even a little bit amused by the lengths Kensingten had gone to just ensure her defeat at the hands of the National Elite Champion.)
Candice Blair: Hell, she even took things a whole step further than that and even attacked me after the match when I was already down and out. Making sure that I couldn’t do exactly as I said I would in the way she did and thinking that she got the upper hand over me the other week, there’s no doubt in my mind biscuit butt was delusional enough to think she had proven anything. But oh sweetheart, you couldn’t have possibly thought I’d let that shit slide, did you?! How about we take a look at what all exactly went down on Dynasty, shall we?!
(Candice’s expression says it all, perhaps even a little too excited as she motions to the tron, as a replay of the final moments of the match between Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and Kasey Kaos starts up. In what had been an enthralling match, Kasey defeats Kensingten in decisive fashion to advance in the Specialists Championship tournament, but afterward, Candice Blair shocks Kensingten with a surprise attack! Back inside the ring, Candice can’t help but look proud of her actions.)
Candice Blair: That bitch knew she had it coming and it was such a relief to get some payback over her, especially when I knew she wouldn’t have seen it coming and wouldn’t have a choice but to deal with the consequences. The only thing making what happened even sweeter was seeing her miss out on yet ANOTHER championship opportunity, proving just how much she wasn’t fit for getting anywhere close to that Specialists Championship; I didn’t even have to interfere for that to happen! But you see, no one fucks with Candice Blair and gets away with it-
(“Hell on Heels” by Pistol Annies interrupts Candice, but she’s not surprised at all that Kensingten has something to say, even inviting her to come out! Kensingten walks out to the sound of boos, a microphone in one hand while waving the other to signal for her music to stop.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Looooord, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an absolutely pathetic waste of everyone’s time, but it is Candice Blair we’re unfortunately finding ourselves having to talk about here, so who can truly say they’re shocked?! I mean, I am truly not surprised in the slightest to see you how you’ve waddled on out here, grinning like the cat that just ate the canary when it comes to what happened on Dynasty, Miss Blair. After all, with as many times as you’ve failed and have come up short yourself, you have to take whatever kind of little moral victories you can get at this point; you’ve certainly got no Universal Women’s Championship to prove me otherwise.
(Candice rolls her eyes dismissively while Kensingten wears a spiteful smirk, obviously reveling in reminding Candice of her own defeat to Serena merely a few short weeks ago.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: But be that as it may, when it comes to me losing to Miss Kaos, I’m not upset at all. I know that what I did on Friday was nothing short of my absolute best, and I’ll live to fight another day like always knowing that I’m entirely capable of taking on – and defeating – anyone and anybody.
Candice Blair: Oh?! Looks like you couldn’t have come out here any sooner then, Kensi! See, since asking for a future match against you was exactly what I came out here for, and if you’re just so confident about that, then how about we put that to the test at say – oh, I don’t know – how about Wicked Games?!
(Kensingten audibly scoffs into her microphone, sounding the slightest bit amused as she daintily presses her fingertips to her chest, even looking a little surprised but wearing a grin nonetheless.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Now, Miss Blair, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say that you were making the awfully brash and reckless decision to step into the ring with me. If I were you, I’d really take the time to think about what you’re asking for-
Candice Blair: I know exactly what I’m asking for, and I’m sure as hell expecting to get it! After weeks and weeks of this between you and me, I’m looking to put this all to rest. Your Country Cookin’ nonsense, the etiquette bullshit, those goddamn bricks in your purse and attacking me with them – it’s time that you realize you’ve fucked with the wrong Ava.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Do you speak to your mother that way?! Looooord, I don’t know where in the world Carmen went wrong in raising you Ava girls, Miss Blair, but every week it’s like a little peek into how much of a pigpen it truly was in that house because the language coming out of that mouth is nothing short of dirty, foul! Honestly, it truly says so much that you managed to learn absolutely nothing from my etiquette class with how that awful, degenerate Ava attitude just keeps on rearing its certainly ugly head; there’s just no hope for you, is there?
Candice Blair: Keep it up and it’ll be you with no hope of ever stepping foot into this ring ever again. Now, I didn’t come out here to play games, and I sure as hell didn’t come out here to listen to you run your mouth, make your assumptions, or hear anything more about class and sophistication from you of all people. I came out here to take the time to challenge you to a match, so that way, you’ll learn to never cross me again! So, you, me, Wicked Games – do you feel like getting your ass kicked or are you gonna be a coward after all this time?
(What Candice says is enough to bring Kensingten to start down the ramp, laughing with a hint of disbelief at so much as even the implication of such a thing as her backing away from a match against her.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: You may believe me to be a lot of things, Miss Blair, but one thing I can most certainly attest to not being, is a coward! While I may have lost on Friday, I very much held my own against the very woman who only confirmed her insanity against your sister when Miss Kaos was laughing upon being set ablaze. Regardless of the outcome, I’ll always be confident in my abilities. You may feel secure after seeing my defeat, but I’m not to be underestimated, especially not by someone who’s failed time and time again to accomplish anything worthwhile in this company. Therefore, I’d be nothing but delighted to prove to you why Wicked Games will be nothing but yet another disappointing outcome for you and Lord knows you’ve had plenty; it’ll be nothing for me to be the one who does it to you now.
Candice Blair: If that’s how you think this ends after everything, you just don’t know how far I’ll go to put a stop to all that. I’ve had my own shortcomings, absolutely, but if there’s anything I’ve proven, it’s that Candice Blair is a rising star and that I’ve got all the makings of a future champion in this company. And you? You’re just gonna end up being someone that I kicked aside and the fuck out of my way – you’ve been nothing but an annoying bitch, Kensingten, and that’s why I can’t wait to beat the hick out of you come Wicked Games!
(Candice drops her mic and steps to the ropes with a nod of her head, smiling with excitement as she’s got the match she wanted! She continues her trash talking off-mic but Kensingten simply gives her a dismissive wave, shaking her head as she starts heading toward the back.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Ta ta, Miss Blair, I just do not have the time for you tonight!
(Kensingten rolls her eyes and turns her back to Candice to make her exit, leaving Candice behind in the ring for her match.)
James Peters: Candice Blair versus Kensingten Calhoun-Astor seems to be official for Wicked Games! With what these two women have proven to be capable of in their own right, it’s sure to be a match that’ll be intense just as much as it’ll be personal!
Persephone: Nothing will ever be as personal as Rex no longer being EAW World Champion; I didn’t do anything to deserve having that happen to me. I’m a good fucking person 😭
Rich Russillo: This won’t be a match to sleep on, as Kensingten and Candice have both shown in the past that they’ve got it in them to put on a match that shows just how far they can be willing to go and push themselves in any environment! I believe it’s safe to say that they’ll be sure to surprise us with where they take things come Wicked Games, and I can’t wait to watch!
(The final shot is of Candice Blair pacing in the ring in anticipation of her match, now with even more of a reason and eagerness to want to get things underway.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Crayola crayons featuring Elitist Serena Bennett, who really likes the blue ones.)
(Candice Blair is still in the ring from the confrontation she had with Kensingten Calhoun-Astor where they had agreed to face one another at Wicked Games. Candice paces the ring as Bella Braxton enters, we see Kensingten make her way toward the announce table.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, already in the ring from San Francisco, CA.! Weighing in at 126 pounds…. She is “THE HOT COMMODITY” CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!
(Candice looks around and smirks before “Player Haters’ Ball by Palisades starts to play throughout the arena, Jesse Barlow comes out accompanied by Hannah Marin, she leads the way as he poses at the entranceway.)
Bella Braxton: And Her Opponent! He Hails from Hoboken, New Jersey! Weighing in at 210 pounds, accompanied to the ring by Hannah Marin, he is “THE VIRTUOUS” JESSE BARLOW!!!!
(Jesse makes his way down to the ring, sliding in and posing, Candice doesn’t look very impressed, but she and Hannah glare at each other for a moment, before Candice turns to see Kensingten sit down next to Persephone in the announce table.)
James Peters: I want to welcome Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, who I guess has decided to stick around. As we watched just minutes ago the match was made for Wicked Games between herself and Candice, and now we have a great match between Jesse Barlow and Candice Blair.
Persephone: Does she have to sit next to me? She smells like peaches.
Rich Russillo: The gorgeous Steel Magnolia, welcome!
Kensingten: Ohhhh looooord I am here on commentary tonight and the pleasure is all yours sugar plum. Social Distancing, nasty.
Persephone: Nasty!? You sat next to me.
Kensingten: And a lady always moves to make way for another.
(The referee checks on both wrestlers before calling for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
James Peters: The match is on the way and… CANDICE BLAIR WITH A DROPKICK! JESSE BARLOW FALLS TO THE MATS! HE STANDS BACK UP AND CANDICE WITH AN ARM DRAG! BARLOW UP INTO A HIP TOSS! BARLOW IS BACK UP AND CLOTHESLINE OVER THE TOP ROPE! SHE IS POINTING AT YOU, KENSINGTEN AND CANDICE HAS STARTED A BALL OF FIRE!
Kensingten: She has absolutely no form, my Granny Mabel could move in the ring better than her, should have seen her when she made her Muscadine Cobbler, may her soul rest in peace.
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow needs to regroup; he doesn’t know where he’s at right now! Hannah is attending him outside the ring. The referee wants to administer the count, but Candice is stopping him, she has something to prove and I want to say that a lot of it has to do with you being out here, Kensingten. You could prove as a distraction, but look at Candice, she is holding the ropes open for Jesse and he flips her off, sliding back in on the other side, as they lock up, Candice slips from behind, she tries a roll up, Jesse tough rolls through, huge chop on the chest of Candice!
Kensingten: Did you see his hand bounce back and almost slap his own face hitting all that silicone?
Persephone: I wouldn’t be talking.
James Peters: Candice buckles under the chest slap, Jesse with a forearm, and another, backing her up to the corner, he whips Candice to the turnbuckle, charging in, NO! Candice with a huge boot! Jesse staggers back, Candice explodes with a knee to his chest! Jesse falls, he gets back up and charges Candice, she sidesteps, Jesse stumbles forward, turning around, SPINNING HEEL KICK! JESSE TAKES IT RIGHT IN THE FACE! RIGHT INTO A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! JESSE BARLOW CAN’T FIGURE OUT CANDICE BLAIR AND MAYBE YOU BEING OUT HERE KENSINGTEN IS DETRIMENTAL FOR JESSE INSTEAD OF CANDICE, SHE IS ON FIRE!
Kensingten: Honey please, I bring out the best in everyone.
(She fake and annoyingly laughs.)
Persephone: You’re annoying.
Kensingten: Simmer down honey, I’ll make sure to make you a batch of Ida May’s Famous Chicken Fried Steak, the Lord only knows you could use a couple of sandwiches.
Persephone: I beg your pardon; I have a Victoria Secret model body!
Kensingten: No, you have a “I am starving and need a bowl of Chicken and Dumplings, Kensi” type of body.
Rich Russillo: And while these two are arguing, Candice Blair has climbed on the top rope! She is waiting for Jesse to slowly get up, and FLYING BODYPRESS! NO! Jesse drops to the mats in time! She hits hard! She hit hard on her chest! Jesse now has an opening! She is getting up slowly, Jesse with A BACK SUPLEX INTO A BACKSTABBER! Jesse with the cover!
James Peters: Candice with a kick out, he is going to have to do a lot more to get Candice down! She is in a lot of trouble though, Jesse picking her up by the hair, front facelock, into a DDT! No! CANDICE WITH A FLOAT OVER NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! BRIDGING FOR THE PIN!
James Peters: KICK OUT BY JESSE BARLOW! Candice does look hurt though, she grabs Jesse, looks like she is trying to lock in a crossface, no! Jesse slips out from the back! He grabs Candice arm, with a chicken-wing, but Candice is able to twist around, NO! A LARIAT BY JESSE BARLOW! WHAT A HUGE STRIKE ON CANDICE! AND DDT! JESSE BARLOW FOLLOWS WITH A DDT! HE MIGHT HAVE KNOCKED HER OUT!
Persephone: Good, end this match so Paula Deen here can leave.
Kensingten: Oh sweet baby Jesus in a manger, how can these two stand you on a weekly basis is beyond me, why don’t you just sit back honey, stop being rude and watch Candice blow this match against this…. Jesse Barlow.
Rich Russillo: While we have a cat fight here, Candice is down but Jesse Barlow is not making a cover, he is instead turning her over into a Boston Crab! Jesse Barlow is trying his best to wear down Candice and get the submission victory! Jesse has her in the middle of the ring, the referee is checking on Candice who is in a lot of pain right now, she is trying to crawl to the ropes but Jesse is too strong, she needs to think about her career and her back, this could be detrimental to Candice, she is in a lot of trouble right now!
Kensingten: Break her back, honey! Break her back!
James Peters: We see where Kensingten wants this to go, but you have to give it Candice who started off a house of fire, but a couple of mistakes and now she is in a really bad place! Jesse Barlow continues to wrench back on that Boston Crab, but here comes Candice! She is starting to crawl! The damage has already been done, but this woman is fighting, and we have seen how tough she is against women like Serena Bennett and Minerva.
Kensingten: Both classless, though Minerva does like my cooking, so I guess she’s just a little trashy. Candice, just give up honey, it’s time to tap because if you continue this, I am gonna eat you up alive at Wicked Games.
Rich Russillo: She is getting to the ropes, reaching…. CANDICE GETS TO THE ROPES! THE REFEREE CALLING FOR THE BREAK!
(1……2……3…….4……. Jesse Breaks the hold.)
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow breaks the hold and Candice is hurt, he has taken out her back and what do we have here, Jesse Barlow, he is slowly picking up Candice by the hair, up and INTO A BACKBREAKER! Oh that hurt Candice! Barlow is climbing to the second rope…. LEG DROP! HE IS IN COMPLETE CONTROL! HE GRABS CANDICE BY THE HAIR…. HE GRABS HER FOR THE BAMBINO BOMB! NO! CANDICE TWISTS OUT, ‘GG2EZ”! THE STIFF PUNCH RIGHT TO THE FACE OF CANDICE! SHE CRUMBLES TO THE MAT AND THIS ONE IS OVER!
Kensingten: Glass jaw.
James Peters: SHE KICKS OUT! CANDICE IS ABLE TO SNEAK OUT! THIS MATCH IS FAR FROM OVER! JESSE IS LIVID! HE IS ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE AS CANDICE IS RECOVERING! SHE IS SLOWLY GETTING UP, JESSE TURNS TO GRAB HER, WHIPPING HER INTO THE ROPES, CANDICE WITH A HANDSPRING…. INTO A CUTTER! JESSE DROPS TO THE MAT! CANDICE IS SLOWLY GETTING UP AS JESSE GETS UP, CANDICE UP TO HER FEET WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! JESSE DROPS TO THE MAT! CANDICE WITH THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: HANNAH MARIN JUST PULLED CANDICE LEG! SHE TOOK HER OFF JESSE AND CANDICE IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT! SHE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND IS FACE TO FACE WITH HANNA! MARIN TAKES OFF HER HEEL! SHE IS THREATENING CANDICE WITH IT! WAIT… JESSE BARLOW WITH A SUICIDE DIVE ON THE OUTSIDE! HE TOOK OUT CANDICE AND EVEN HANNAH WAS HIT! JESSE CHECKS ON HANNAH, SHE NODS! AND HE PICKS UP CANDICE THROWING HER BACK IN THE RING…. HE PICKS UP CANDICE… BAMBINOI BOMB! THE MATCH IS OVER!
Persephone: How did this woman get her shoulder up, I mean seriously?
Kensingten: It was a slow count. She is not that tough, she is simply lucky, peaches n’ cream.
James Peters: CANDICE GETS A SHOUDLER UP! SHE IS NOT DONE YET! JESSE CANNOT BELIEVE IT! HE IS DRAGGING HER BACK UP TO HER FEET! JESSE RUNS… NEVERMORE! NO!!!!! CANDICE SIDESTEPS! JESSE GETS A KICK TO THE GUT! A HAIR PULL GORY SPECIAL! JESSE IS DOWN AS CANDICE DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER!
Kensingten: Shoulder up referee!
Rich Russillo: He did get a shoulder up! He did get a shoulder up! Candice can’t believe it, she is hurt, tired but the young Ava continues to fight hard! JESSE IS CRAWLING TO THE CORNER AND HERE COMES CANDICE…. METEORA! HANNAH IS UP ON THE APRON, SUPERKICK BY CANDICE! SHE KNOCKED HANNAH OUT OF HER SHOES! SHE FALLS OFF THE APRON! CANDICE IS NOW ON JESSE, HE GETS UP AND SHE HITS A KICK, THEN ANOTHER KICK, A FOREAM AS JESSE STUMBLES BACK, NO! JESSE WITH AN EYE GOUGE! PICKING UP CANDICE ANOTHER BACKBREAKER… NO! SHE ROLLS HIM UP FOR A PIN! NO! JESSE REVERSES IT!
James Peters: CANDICE KICKS OUT!
Persephone: End this now please!
James Peters: JESSE IS PICKING HER UP, HE IS READY TO END THIS! A KICK TO HER GUT, ANOTHER BACKBREAKER AND THAT MIGHT BE IT AS JESSE IS CLIMBING THE TOP ROPE!
Kensingten: COME ON HONEY!
James Peters: JESSE SI SETTING HIMSELF UP AND HE IS GOING FOR THE GARDEN DREAMS! THE 650 SPLASH AND…. IT CONNECTS! NO!!! CANDICE GETS THE KNEES UP AND BARLOW IS GASSING! CANDICE…. SPEAR! CANDICE TAKES DOWN BARLOW WITH THE SPEAR! CANDICE IS GRABBING THE LEGS! HANNAH IS STILL DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE! CANDICE….. THE CANDY LOCK! SHE HAS THE CANDY LOCK!!!!
Rich Russillo: CANDY LOCK! THIS MATCH IS OVER! THE CANDY LOCK! JESSE BARLOW IS GOING TO TAP! HE IS GOING TO TAP!
Kensingten: I have seen enough, excuse me.
James Peters: KENSINGTEN!? WHERE ARE YOU GOING!?
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor gets up and walks over to where Jesse is in the ring screaming as Candice has the lock, she slides into the ring…)
Persephone: This bitch.
James Peters: WHAT IS KENSINGTEN DOING!? SHE… SHE… SHE JUST DELICATELY STOMPED ON JESSE BARLOW’S BACK?! KENSINGTEN LOUDLY CLEARS HER THROAT TO GET THE REFEREE’S ATTENTION AND SHE PLACES HER FOOT ON JESSE ONCE AGAIN!!! THE REFEREE SHAKES HIS HEAD! KENSINGTEN FINALLY KICKS JESSE AND NOW THE REFEREE HAS TO RING THE BELL!!!
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Rich Russillo: What the hell just happened!? Kensingten has rolled out of the ring and she is smiling walking up the entranceway and Candice thinks she won! The referee is lowering her arm, he is telling her what just happened!
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH AS A RESULT OF A DISQUALIFICATION……. “THE VIRTUOUS” JESSE BARLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Player Haters’ Ball by Palisades” starts to play as Jesse rolls out of the ring barely able to stand, Hannah is finally up, helping him up with one hand, holding her heels in the other, she tends to him as they start to leave from the side. Kensingten stands on the rampway, smiling as a seething and angry Candice Blair leans against the ropes staring her down, pointing right at Kensingten….)
Persephone: She was annoying but at least she did one thing tonight and that was end this match.
Rich Russillo: Highway robbery, but Kensingten is getting under her skin, she is doing her best to play with Candice Blair’s head. She cost her the match tonight, Jesse was in a lot of trouble and would have sure tapped out had Astor not interfered and cost Blair, but that is why the Steel Magnolia is extremely dangerous.
James Peters: Bad break for Candice tonight, she put up a hell of a fight tonight, Kensingten ruined it. We will be right back.
(Candice continues to stare down Kensingten who starts to sarcastically laugh, while wiping away fake perspiration from her face.)
(Voltage fades into another promotional ad for Wicked Games.)
(Promotional ad for Wicked Games airs, featuring the the various matches already announced.)
(The camera fades into Bella Braxton standing in the middle of the ring ready to announce the next match)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following is a ROUND ONE MATCH IN THE GRAND PRIX! And it is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘It’s Corona Time’ plays up to cheers as a lowrider comes through next to the stage with the team of TLA driving it and Terry Chambers in the passenger’s seat. Both of them stand up on the lowrider as TLA looks out with a smile on his face and Terry does the same with a smirk as well. Both of them jump off and jump up onto the apron as they make their way down the ramp and to the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… at a combined weight of 467 pounds… THE TEAM OF THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!! AND LA PANTERA SEXUAL TLA!!!!!!!!!!! THE CORONA HOMBRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: That’s an interesting name… :lupe:
James Peters: Oh c’mon Rich it’s obviously the beer! And if I were them I’d do like TLA said and spread the Corona with everyone!
Rich Russillo: :krabs: Anyways, here comes the team of Terry Chambers and TLA! Having a known chemistry with one another in the Brand Warfare match at Territorial Invasion they seem to have a great bond with one another, which is always an essential thing that you want especially in a situation like the Grand Prix.
James Peters: Of course! Two star competitors becoming partners, imagine what they could do together? We know what they could do separately, hell I wouldn’t take it away from them to pull off a “shock” of some sorts and win the whole thing! But of course they have to get past the first round, and that’s something that they can obviously do with seeming ease.
Persephone: Guys you’ve gotta be kidding me… Terry Chambers, someone who is only known for being fat, TLA, some Mexican narcissist where clearly his intelligence outside of the ring didn’t translate to the inside. Do you expect them to win?! I don’t.
Rich Russillo: Why is Mexican an insult. :mjpls:
(Terry makes his way up the steel steps and enters into the ring as he stands at the center of the ring as TLA slides into the ring as well and poses at the center in front of Terry. Both look at one another fist bump one another and make their way to their corner as ‘Its Corona Time’ fades out. Before long ‘Manifest’ by Starset plays up as MASOCHISTxMANIFEST make their way out to the stage. Myles has a serious look on his face as he makes his way out completely eyeing the ring as Minerva follows next to him with a calm look on her face which cracks into a smirk as she looks towards her partner. Both of them see eye to eye as they nod and make their way down the ramp swiftly and to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… at a combined weight of 339 pounds… THE TEAM OF THE MANIFEST MYLES!!!!!!!!!! AND THE PRINCESS KILLER MINERVA!!!!!!!!!! MASOCHISTXMANIFEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for this team just as the other team that we just saw was also acquainted with one another at Territorial Invasion in the Brand Warfare match. Definitely a connection unmatched by the majority of this tournament it definitely should correlate into their in-ring ability with one another.
James Peters: Myles & Minerva separate are already a dominant force to be reckoned with and their track record shows that, but together? Who knows what could happen, all I know is that I’m interested beyond belief with how things are going with them. Let’s see how this goes shall we?
Persephone: What a lovely couple… I hate it.
James Peters: :wtf:
Persephone: Public displays of affection disgust me James, get your head on straight, I know you would hate it too.
(Myles slides through the ringpost and onto the apron as he enters into the ring as Minerva takes her time jumping on the apron as she poses and whips her head back leaving space for Myles to be seen as he poses in the center of the ring. Minerva enters into the ring as she meets up with Myles who responds with a wink as they both make their way to their corner and eye their opponents as ‘Manifest’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this Round One matchup is underway! Both Myles and TLA are starting this off for their teams, BUT MYLES RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR A EARLY BICYCLE KNEE OFF THE BAT!

TLA taking a step back as he’s running forward while he has the chance, AND CONNECTS WITH RUNNING DOUBLE KNEES TO THE HEAD OF MYLES!
Rich Russillo: Myles grabbing the ropes as he’s pulling himself away but TLA already has his head and is bringing him up to his feet, BUT MYLES CONNECTS WITH A ELBOW! TLA caught off guard as he’s sent back, AND MYLES GOES FOR ANOTHER ONE WITH THE OPPOSITE ARM!

James Peters: AND IT’S MINERVA THAT’S IN THIS MATCH! Minerva entering into the ring as TLA is turned towards Myles, AS MYLES CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE! TLA stumbling forward now as Minerva is about to finish it off! OUTBACK JACKED!
Rich Russillo: BUT BEFORE THE REVERSE STO CAN CONNECT TLA WITH A ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF MINERVA’S HEAD! TLA TURNING MINERVA AROUND AS MYLES IS DUMBFOUNDED, AS TLA THROWS HER RIGHT TOWARDS HIM!

James Peters: BUT MYLES FINDING THE POWER TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING AS HE DRAGS MINERVA OUT AS WELL AS NOBODY’S HOME AS TLA DROPS DOWN ONTO THE MAT! TLA slowly getting up to his feet as Myles rolls into the ring, MYLES GOING FOR A BICYCLE KICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS FACE TO TAKE HIM BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! CLAYMORE KICK! IT SENDS MYLES DOWN AS HE’S ABSOLUTE DEADWEIGHT AS TERRY CHAMBERS OUT OF NOWHERE! BUT IT’S NO USE AS MYLES ISN’T THE LEGAL PERSON IN THIS MATCH!
James Peters: TLA is back up to his feet confused at where he is or who even is the legal person in this match, BUT WE HAVE OUR ANSWER! MINERVA! TWILIGHT! INVERTED FACELOCK ELBOW DROP CONNECTS AS TLA IS TAKEN DOWN TO THE GROUND! MINERVA HOOKING THE LEG AND GOING FOR THE PIN NOW!
Rich Russillo: NOT TODAY! TLA GETTING THE SHOULDER UP AS MINERVA SITS UP AND EVEN SHE CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED! LA PANTERA SEXUAL LIVES TO FIGHT ON ANOTHER DAY!
James Peters: Minerva slowly getting up to her feet as she’s recovering and readying herself, if there’s a time to finish this match off it’s when the opponent is still vulnerable and that’s exactly the state of TLA right in front of her! Minerva is waiting for TLA to get up now as this is the perfect opportunity to do exactly that, MINERVA KICKING HIM IN THE GUT AS SHE’S GOING FOR IT! SHE’S GOING FOR ATLAS FALLS!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! TLA IN MID-AIR KNEES MINERVA IN THE GUT AS MINERVA CRUMBLES DOWN TO THE GROUND BEFORE SHE CAN EXECUTE THE TWISTING BRAINBUSTER! TLA taking advantage as he keeps the position he’s in on her, AND BEGINS TO SEND SICKENING KNEES TO THE SIDE OF HER GUT REPEATEDLY! TLA NOT STOPPING FOR A MOMENT TRYING TO WEAKEN MINERVA AND GET THE ADVANTAGE AS THE REF IS COMING IN TO SPLIT TLA UP AS LOOK HOW THE TABLES HAVE TURNED IN A SNAP!
James Peters: TLA back up to his feet as he positions himself, AND DOESN’T HESITATE AS HE LEAPS UP AND DROPS DOWN ONTO THE GUT OF MINERVA WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP AS HE’S CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE WITH THE MOMENTUM HE HAS! AND GOES FOR A MOONSAULT ONTO HER! BUT MINERVA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY OF THAT! WHAT THE?! HOW DID TLA LAND ON HIS FEET?!

TLA RETURNING THE FAVOR AS MINERVA FALLS DOWN TO THE GROUND AS TLA CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP! TLA HAS TRIED THIS ONCE AND NOW HE’S GOING FOR IT AGAIN! BURNOUT! CORKSCREW 360 SENTON CONNECTS ONTO MINERVA!

Rich Russillo: WAIT! NOT JUST YET! MYLES HAS SEEN ENOUGH AS HE GRABS THE REF AND PULLS HIM OUT OF THE RING BEFORE THE COUNT CAN CONTINUE! Myles is taking precautions as the Ref is down on the outside of the ring as he might’ve just saved Minerva in this match after TLA connected with the Burnout!
Persephone: Yawn, alright you guys just keep escaping pins and shit you mind if you keep doing that so I can take a nap? Thanks…
James Peters: TLA seeming to be composed despite Myles interfering and taking the Ref out of the equation as he’s bringing Minerva back up to her feet and sending her towards his corner as Minerva is backed up against it as it seems he’s going for the tag to Terry! This could be the chance to finish it right here!
Rich Russillo: AND TERRY IS SUCCESSFULLY TAGGED IN! Terry entering into the ring as he goes into a corner as TLA throws Minerva down to the center of the ring and goes to one as well, as I think we know what they’re going for right now! BOTH OF THEM RUNNING FORWARD! IF THIS CONNECTS THIS COULD SPELL THE END! DTC! DON’T TELL CONSUELA!
(Suddenly the crowd turns sour at what’s happening in the ring mixed with pure shock)
James Peters: IT’S DRAKE KING! DRAKE HAS ROLLED INTO THE RING AS TLA HAS TAKEN NOTICE! TLA QUICKLY BREAKING OUT BEFORE THE MOVE CAN EXECUTE AS HE BREAKS INTO A SPRINT TOWARDS HIM! BUT DRAKE RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR THE GUILLOTINE!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! THE SICK KICK IS AVOIDED AS DRAKE CONNECTS WITH TERRY CHAMBERS INSTEAD! TERRY IS CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE AS DRAKE IS ABSOLUTELY DUMBFOUNDED, NOT WANTING THIS TO HAPPEN TO ANYONE BUT WHO WAS INTENDED! Drake grabbing at his hair as he quickly retreats out of the ring, Terry is down and out what’s going to happen now?!
James Peters: I KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN! PARADISE LOST! MINERVA LOCKS IN THE INVERTED FACE-LOCK TAKING TERRY BACK UP AND DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! MINERVA HOOKING THE LEG AND GOING FOR THE PIN! IT CAN’T END LIKE THIS!
Rich Russillo: TLA IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE RUNS AT MINERVA TO BREAK UP THE PIN!
James Peters: DE FACTO! MYLES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP PLANTING TLA DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! TERRY’S FOOT IS UNDER THE ROPES-
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Manifest’ plays up once more to the mixed reaction of the crowd as Minerva is standing at the center of the ring breathing heavily as she looks down at the downed Terry Chambers. Myles would recover grabbing the top rope as he would close his eyes for a moment before making his way over to Minerva, Minerva would put an arm around him as she looked up at him with a smirk as they started their celebration)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here are your winners, and advancing to ROUND TWO… MASOCHISTXMANIFEST!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: WHA- HUH?! What happened???
Rich Russillo: Well, what a match! Both of these teams went pound for pound against one another, absolutely brutalizing each other, but in the end it was none other than MASOCHISTxMANIFEST who came out with the win, but not in the most favorable way.
James Peters: Yup The Last Messiah had to come out and interfere in the match, and although he hit the wrong person in the form of Terry, Minerva was still able to take advantage of it and get the win for her team. And if it wasn’t any worse, Terry had his foot under the ropes! This match was certainly a ride. But as for the interference of Drake King, it’ll sure be exciting to see how TLA responds-
Rich Russillo: WE’RE ABOUT TO SEE THAT! TLA WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE TO DRAKE ON THE OUTSIDE AS HE’S SLAMMING FISTS INTO HIS FACE! TLA HAS ABSOLUTELY SNAPPED AS HE’S BRINGING HIM UP, AND SLAMMING HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! DRAKE GIVING A CRY OF PAIN AS TLA TURNS HIM AROUND, AND SLAMS HIM INTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON THIS TIME!
James Peters: TLA IS KICKING THE SHIT OUT OF DRAKE AS HE CIRCLES HIM AROUND THE RING, AS TLA SLAMS DRAKE SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS! DRAKE STUMBLING AWAY AS TLA ISN’T DONE AS HE SETS HIM UP!
Rich Russillo: MEXICAN DESTROYER! FLIP PILEDRIVER CONNECTS SPIKING DRAKE DOWN TO THE GROUND!
(TLA stands up and looks down at Drake with a cold look on his face as he leaves Drake absolutely battered and beaten as he walks up the ramp and takes his leave. Meanwhile Myles and Minerva look on in the ring with smirks on their faces as ‘Manifest’ plays up as Voltage fades out to commercial break)
(Commercial promoting Marvel’s upcoming “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” series, where Elitist Andre Walker complains about the old Captain America being gone before remembering that he’s supposed to promote the show.)
(When Voltage returns, a screen bar pops up and we see an interview that was conducted earlier today.)
[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER TODAY ]
(Sofia Clarke glanced around nervously, almost as if she couldn’t believe she had agreed to this. Earlier in the week, she was given the assignment of conducting an exclusive interview with one of the competitor’s in the Specialists Championship match at House of Glass, Kasey Kaos. However, the only issue with this is that Kasey had only agreed if she could pick the location. The location Kasey had selected was down a dark, dirt road somewhere off the Interstate, right outside of East Rutherford. Sofia and her cameraman were both a bit nervous, but their instructions had been clear. If they wanted to speak to Kasey, they would meet her on her terms. They were inside of an abandoned house, rotted and falling to pieces. The boards on the windows were coming off, and the window panes had been shattered. Glass, dirt, dust, and trash littered the house, and in the middle of it, completely at peace, sat Kasey. Sofia wasn’t about to sit down. In fact, she was doing her best to remain professional and not show Kasey her fear. Kasey could smell it though, and as she glanced up at Sofia, a smile crossed her face.)
Kasey Kaos: We get the impression you do not like the location we have chosen.
(Sofia flashes Kasey a tight smile.)
Sofia Clarke: It’s definitely not my first choice, but this is not about me. This is about you.
(Kasey’s sinister smile widens.)
Kasey Kaos: It is indeed about us, Sofia, and what we are set to accomplish next week at Wicked Games, an appropriately titled event in our humble opinion. We have spoken about winning the Specialists Championship before and have competed for it as well. Next weekend is our chance to finally get our hands on some gold and cement ourselves as the force we know we are. Since day one, we have put everyone on notice in the so-called land of ‘Elite.’ We have notable victories over names that apparently mean something to the sheep that make up the EAW Universe. We have left a trail of broken bodies and bruised egos in our wake. Halloween will be the culmination of everything for us, and once we get our hands on the Specialists Championship, we will send everyone who steps up to us to challenge for it straight down to Hell.
Sofia Clarke: The woman you are set to face next weekend is none other than Veena Adams, whom we all know is the niece of Mr. DEDEDE, and she’s also the co-General Manager of Dynasty. Veena has certainly come into her own as of late as a competitor and seems determined to bring the belt back to Dynasty. What are your thoughts on her efforts so far and do you see her as competition for you?
(A slight chuckle escapes from Kasey’s dry, cracked lips.)
Kasey Kaos: We are aware of Veena’s pedigree and we are not impressed. The little wrestling princess is more peon than princess, but we digress. We will expose just how flawed little Veena is inside that ring, because we will not be falling victim to her tricks or to the ‘Killer Queen’s Rhapsody.’ We are not Harper Lee and we most certainly are not Alexis Chambers. We are the ones who finished eighth at Grand Rampage. We nearly dethroned Minerva for the Universal Women’s Championship. We should have walked away from Pain for Pride the Specialists Champion with the blood of a virgin on our hands. We took Ms. Extreme to her limits and burned the flesh from her body. We have been poised to take a position of power here for a while and finally that time has come. We will make an example out of Veena Adams come Wicked Games. We will punish her and leave her a broken, blithering mess in the middle of the ring. We will bend and contort her body until her bones snap. We will rip every strand of hair from her nasty, little head. We will show no mercy as we beat her black and blue, to the point where her face is unrecognizable. These are our promises, not our threats, for we do not make threats. We keep our promises.
(Kasey stands up, which causes Sofia to take a step back. Kasey narrows her eyes, and bares her teeth, which sparks a bit of fear inside of the Voltage backstage correspondant.)
Kasey Kaos: Do you believe us?
(Sofia’s eyes are wide and she nods, taking another step back and putting more distance between herself and Kasey.)
Sofia Clarke: I believe that you… errr, all of you, are capable of doing whatever you set your mind too. I have to ask you this, though. Are you more focused on sending a message to the roster through the destruction of Veena Adams than you are on winning the championship itself?
Kasey Kaos: Don’t be a fool. Our goal is obviously to win the championship, and to do so in dominant fashion. Veena Adams is just the unfortunate soul who has to stand across from us and serve as the whipping post. She will suffer and she will bleed, and she will not leave Wicked Games with that belt around her waist. If all goes according to plan, she won’t be leaving Wicked Games under her own power at all. We are no longer in the mood to play meaningless games with the people of EAW. We are here to unleash absolute Hell and wreak havoc.
Sofia Clarke: If you do manage to defeat Veena next week, how do you plan to add to the legacy of the Specialists Championship?
Kasey Kaos: If?
(A maniacal laugh escapes from Kasey’s throat and she closes the gap between her and the other woman. Sofia’s back is pressed against the nasty wall, and Kasey gets close, licking her lips.)
Kasey Kaos: There is no ‘if’ in this scenario, sweet Sofia. We will reign supreme.
(Kasey traces one broken, dirty nail down the side of Sofia’s face, and brushes her thumb across Sofia’s lips.)
Sofia Clarke: C-c-can you back up please…
Kasey Kaos: Are you uncomfortable?
(Sofia slowly nods which seems to delight Kasey. Her hand cups Sofia’s delicate throat and she squeezes; not hard, but not gentle either. Sofia gasps.)
Kasey Kaos: We want the entire world to feel uncomfortable when we come around. For way too long we have been looked at as an outcast and as someone who does not belong. The Specialists Championship in our hands will signify that we do belong and we can not be stopped. That belt is ours, and it will be for a long time, and as far as the legacy of the belt goes and what we will add to it? We don’t give a damn about its legacy. The only thing that matters is what we do with it, and sweet Sofia, we can tell you that nobody is ready for us as the Specialists Champion.
(Kasey lets go of Sofia’s throat and backs away. Sofia is frozen in fear, but when Kasey waves her hand to signal the interview is over, that snaps Sofia out of her trance and sends her fleeing from the house. Kasey’s laughter is heard as the scene fades to black.)
(Voltage fades back into real time, and Sofia is seen standing in the backstage interview area. She shudders having to relive what happened to her earlier in the day.)
???: Oh get the fuck over it.
(The camera shot widens and standing by Sofia is none other than the woman Kasey will face at Wicked Games for the Specialists Championship, Veena Adams. Both women had just watched the interview on the monitor and judging from the look on Veena’s face, she wasn’t at all fucked.)
Sofia Clarke: Get over it? She choked me.
Veena Adams: Yeah and I’m sure it’s not the first time a bitch like you has had a hand wrapped around her throat. I guess when there’s not a dick drilling into you, then you consider choking some form of assault or whatever.
Sofia Clarke: I… wow…
Veena Adams: Exactly, and that’s really all I can say about whatever the fuck that was that I was just forced to watch. First of all, Voltage sucks and fuck this show. The only reason I’m here is because I had a meeting with Matty to go over the details of the Specialists Championship Tournament Finals and make the match between the weirdo and myself official. As of like ten minutes ago, Veena Adams and Kasey Kaos will square off against one another for the Specialists Championship next weekend at Wicked Games. My little Matty Muffin said he was thinking of doing some lame Halloween themed stipulation for all of the matches, but quite frankly, the match type itself doesn’t really make a difference to me. I have proven myself as a technical wrestler and have proven that I can handle myself in extreme situations. Cumdumpster Blairhead can attest to that seeing as how I whooped her ass back at Pain for Pride and made her my bitch in a match she requested. Humble brag! Kasey Kaos getting the shit kicked out of her and sent packing to whatever special needs shelter will take her is literally a foregone conclusion. I am the only woman capable of restoring the prestige to the Specialists Championship, and Gawd knows we have to fix the damage the little cuntwhore Sarah did to it.
Sofia Clarke: What do you really think you can bring to the table against a competitor like Kasey Kaos? The woman is a loose cannon and a nutjob. Most people believe you don’t stand a chance at knocking off Kasey.
Veena Adams: And most people are fucking stupid, Sofia, duh. This has been established time and time again. The only thing that I need to bring to the table against Kasey is myself, because I am a fucking Adams. No one thought I would defeat Alexis or Harper, but here I stand, and I am poised to walk away from Wicked Games with my first ever championship. Now I will admit that it’s taken me a bit longer to get into this position. Coming back from my injury has been more difficult than I planned, but I was in a neck brace for like ever. My story is remarkable, and despite the shitty luck I’ve had in the ring since returning, I have never not believed in myself. I know that these dumb cunts aren’t capable of walking in my designer shoes, and that’s why I keep pressing on and doing my own thing on my own terms. I knew it would all come together for me eventually and look at me now! One win away from winning my first championship here in EAW, and I can’t wait to represent this company as the new Specialists Champion!
(During Veena’s speech, Sofia’s entire demeanor had changed. The color was drained from her face and finally Veena took notice of it.)
Veena Adams: The fuck is wrong with you?
(Sofia replies by bolting and that is when Veena is seized from behind! The voices of the Voltage broadcast team are heard as the attack plays out in front of everyone watching.)
James Peters: KASEY KAOS HAS JUST LOCKED VEENA ADAMS IN ‘KAOS REIGNS’!!! THE DYNASTY CO-GENERAL MANAGER IS STRUGGLING AGAINST KASEY, BUT KASEY IS DRAGGING HER DOWN THE HALL!
Rich Russillo: VEENA HAD NO IDEA THAT KASEY WAS EVEN AT WORLD 1 THEATRE TONIGHT AND IT LOOKS LIKE KASEY PLANS TO MAKE GOOD ON HER PROMISE TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF VEENA!
Persephone: KASEY IS TAKING VEENA OUT OF THE BUILDING AND THEY ARE OUTSIDE NOW! VEENA ISN’T STRUGGLING AS MUCH AS SHE WAS JUST MOMENTS AGO, BUT KASEY HAS HAULED HER UP TO HER FEET! SHE MAINTAINS CONTROL OF VEENA AND SLINGS HER AS HARD AS CAN AGAINST THE SIDE OF THAT METAL DUMPSTER! VEENA GOES LIMP AND CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND! KASEY IS PULLING THE TOP OF THAT DUMPSTER OPEN AND SURELY SHE’S NOT ABOUT TO DO WHAT I THINK SHE’S GUNNA GO?!?!?!!
James Peters: :blessed: KASEY TAKES VEENA BY THE HAIR AND SLAMS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE DUMPSTER! SHE HOISTS UP THE DYNASTY CO-GENERAL MANAGER AND SHE THROWS HER INTO THE DUMPSTER! KASEY KAOS HAS TAKEN OUT THE TRASH! :blessed: :blessed:
Rich Russillo: KASEY SLAMS THE TOP DOWN ON THE DUMPSTER!!! COULD THAT BE OUR FUTURE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP?!
Persephone: Good god… imagine Kasey Kaos with a championship. :lupe:
(The camera zooms in on Kasey who seems pretty pleased with what she’s done, and doesn’t really believe there will be consequences for her actions. She walks away without a care in the world.)
(The camera fades back into ringside and focuses on the Voltage commentary team. Rich wipes his brow in dramatic fashion and lets out a laugh.)
Rich Russillo: :whew: Kasey Kaos really just dumped Veena Adams in a dumpster and shut the door.
James Peters: It couldn’t happen to a nicer person, let me tell you. If there is one person who I do not miss on Voltage, it’s Veena.
Persephone: Right, but we all know Veena Adams isn’t gunna let that slide. She’s going to retaliate. She always does.
(The two guys mumble under their breath because they both hate admitting when Persephone is right. Veena Adams is nothing if not resilient and she’s not the type to stay down for long.)
(“Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea begins to play and that draws everyone’s attention back to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome your 2020 Cash in the Vault winner… DARCY MAY MORGAN!
(Darcy gets a respectable pop from the crowd as she steps out onto the stage. She is dressed in designer jeans, a cropped version of her brand new T-shirt from EAWShop.com, and expensive boots. She is carrying her briefcase and the look on her face is one of a confident woman. Despite Darcy’s struggles since arriving on Voltage, she knows in her heart that she is a future world champion. She will not be denied of her top stop in this company, and tonight she plans to remind everyone of that.)
James Peters: I had a feeling we would be seeing ‘The Leading Lady’ at some point tonight. It’s been one hell of a ride for Darcy May Morgan this season on Voltage. She came in with big dreams and huge expectations, but so far she has struggled to truly break out on this brand.
Rich Russillo: This is a stacked roster, James, full of Hall of Famers and former world champions. We have arguably the best roster in the entire company. Darcy has struggled, but she has one thing going for her that most Elitists on this roster would kill for, and that’s the Cash in the Vault briefcase. She has a world championship shot she can cash in at any time, on any world title. SOSA Henderson, The Visual Prophet, Jamie O’Hara, and Serena Bennett all have to keep one eye open when it comes to Darcy.
Persephone: Well the dumb bitch called her shot already and stated she wants the Universal Women’s Championship so we all know she’s gunnin’ for Serena. Pretty sure the other three sleep well at night knowing Darcy decided to limit herself and support women’s wrestling.
(There is sarcasm in Persephone’s voice, which prompts chuckles from Rich and James. They quiet down, though, because Darcy has gotten into the ring and has taken the microphone. She sits the briefcase in the corner of the ring, and takes a deep breath.)
Darcy May Morgan: I will admit that I had my doubts when it came to Drake and whether or not he would do his part to help us advance in the Grand Prix, but to my surprise he came through and we knocked the Mile-High Club out of the tournament. There’s no doubt ‘The Leading Lady’ wants to add Grand Prix Winner and Unified Tag Team Champion to her list of accolades, and I’m glad Drake was able to keep his head together so we could advance. Our next match is an interesting one, and one I’m looking forward to. House of Leaders versus Blicky Boyz. I’m sure Malcolm is ready for it as well, because he wants to get his hands on Drake to get some payback. Honestly, this is where I’m torn because Drake does deserve to have his arse kicked for costing us War Games. We had the match won and I hate to continue harping on that, but it was a major setback that I didn’t need. Voltage hasn’t been very kind to me, and it’s frustrating. I’m not rendered speechless very often, but every week there seems to be something shady going on, and more often than not, I end up on the losing end of things. I’m sick of it. Dynasty was a step in the right direction. I needed that win and hopefully I can start gaining some much needed momentum.
(Darcy’s eyes turn towards the briefcase and a small smile crosses her face.)
Darcy May Morgan: No matter what happens, there is one thing we all know for certain. At some point, I’m going to be Universal Women’s Champion. A lot of people are speculating that I will be cashing in at House of Glass. Serena Bennett and Harlow Reichert are the first women to ever do battle inside of Red Wallz. If there was ever an opportunity to capitalize and take the championship for myself, it will be at House of Glass… or so people say. I haven’t made a decision about when I’ll cash in, and I’m not going to tease it either. If the champion remains Serena, she doesn’t deserve any type of heads up, and I don’t care anything about Harlow. Obviously I would much rather end Serena’s reign myself, but I’ll take that title for myself no matter who the champion is. Serena and I are going to meet again eventually, and she will finally get to see what this hype is all about.
(Darcy grins, feeling much better now than she has in weeks. There is a silver lining in everything, and Darcy knows how the business works. There will be ups and downs, and she’s already overcome a lot of adversity.)
Darcy May Morgan: All the recent bumps in the road I’ve encountered are things I’m ready to put behind me, and that means looking towards Wicked Games. At the moment, I find myself without an opponent and that’s not okay. I want to compete. I want a match. I’m not about to miss a free-per-view. So Captain Charisma, if you’re listening… I want an opponent! You can’t have a show without ‘The Leading Lady’ and the 2020 Cash in the Vault wi-
(‘Scenario’ by Pop Smoke begins to play, and Darcy looks a bit startled. A grinning, well-dressed, and very handsome Malcolm Jones walks out onto the stage.)
James Peters: Oh damn! I’m not sure if Darcy expected to see Malcolm Jones out here tonight.
Rich Russillo: I’m not sure if she wanted to see Malcolm Jones tonight. Whatever bond these two had built in the build up to War Games seemed to become a bit strained as Darcy opted to go through with her plan to work with Drake for the Grand Prix. Malcolm obviously harbors some resentment towards Drake for trying to take the pin that ultimately ended up being Team Voltage’s downfall.
(Malcolm grabs a spare microphone before sliding into the ring. Darcy has finally gotten over her surprise and Malcolm’s face has turned serious.)
Malcolm Jones: You know what’s funny, Darce? I was just lookin’ around and came to the realization that I don’t have a match for Wicked Games either, and after the absolute joke of a match I was in on Dynasty, I’m ready to really find myself in a good, competitive back and forth. Obviously Windgate and Kelton was never gunna be it. Justin is a bitch, and Kelton did what we all expected him to do and that was absolutely nothing, proving that he really doesn’t have what it takes to compete in this era of EAW. That being said, we all know you do. Contrary to what that selfish little fuck Drake says, you were always going to be MY pick for a teammate. Whatever weird vision he had that involved you is not what my decision was based on. You have held your own against everyone this company has thrown you against, and you more than did your part in War Games. That being said, you’re mad fucking annoying.
Darcy May Morgan: Excuse me?
Malcolm Jones: Because like every other female in this company you are always crying about something. I don’t know why you bitches think you are so fucking oppressed, going through things every wrestler goes through, but acting like all of it is just a huge inconvenience to all of you. We know you’re talented and a future world champion, but you are never really going to come into your own if you continue to sound like every other generic female crybaby on the roster. We don’t anymore Jaded Broken Hearts, OVR 81s who think they’re better than a generous video ranking, and you certainly don’t need to start sounding like Minerva, who despite getting everything she’s always wanted here in EAW, is STILL saying she is overlooked and not being treated the same way everyone else is :skip:. I don’t get female wrestlers and their logic, but I really hope that you end up being different but I won’t hold my breath. Every time you think someone is special and can truly be a breath of fresh air to this company, they somehow find a way to disappoint you and prove you wrong. I know your biggest issues this season are not getting that big win and feeling like you’ve had things taken out of your hands, but you’re acting like this shit doesn’t happen to everyone. I’ve had plenty of victories fucking spoiled by bozos who can’t mind their own business, and the last thing a supposed face of this company needs to be is mentally fragile because believe me, it’s not like this gets easier. If you manage to successfully cash in on Serena, because fuck that Harlot :mjlol:, you are going to have a target firmly on your back. You will have people coming for you left and right, and you’re not gunna win every single match no matter how badly you want too.
Darcy May Morgan: You can spare me the lecture, Malcolm, because it’s not going to do any good. I’m never going to stop wanting the best for myself because I know I bust my arse harder than anyone in this company. I never stop learning, growing, improving, and that is why I am a household name now. There is no IF about me successfully cashing in my briefcase. I will become the Universal Women’s Champion and get the world title reign that I deserve.
Malcolm Jones: So I guess you can bet on that being this big win you want so bad. The win you shoulda had over Minerva a few months ago that Serena took from you. The win you shoulda had in War Games that Drake took from both of us. The win last week you may or may not have gotten, but Drake gave to you over TLA anyway. Blah, blah, blah.
Darcy May Morgan: Shut up, Malcolm. Just shut up. Why are you even out here anyway?
Malcolm Jones: I’m glad you asked, little buddy, even though I already told you. I don’t have a match for Wicked Games either. You want this big time win, over some big time name, well guess what? I’m going to give you a chance to score the biggest win of your career. I’m a former King of Elite, Triple Crown winner, and two-time Pain for Pride headliner. I’ll be your Wicked Games opponent and we can give everyone a lil preview of what they can expect to see in the next round of the Grand Prix.
(Once again, a bit of surprise crosses Darcy’s face. It’s not everyday that Malcolm Jones throws down a challenge. She’s even more surprised he is challenging her.)
Darcy May Morgan: You want to face me at Wicked Games?
Malcolm Jones: I plan on beating you at Wicked Games.
Darcy May Morgan: That’s not going to happen. You want the match, you got it, and honestly, I want it too.
Malcolm Jones: Careful what you wish for.
(Malcolm shrugs and drops the microphone, and that prompts his theme music to start playing once again.)
James Peters: WOW! That’s one hell of a match set for Wicked Games. Malcolm Jones versus Darcy May Morgan might end up stealing the show!
Rich Russillo: No doubt about that. Both of them have a will to win that is like no other. They go hard no matter the match, no matter the circumstances. I absolutely can not wait to see them throw down at Wicked Games.
(Malcolm has left the ring and is making his way up the ramp. Once he reaches the top he turns and smirks at Darcy, who’s now holding her briefcase to her chest and staring a hole in Malcolm. Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(A promotional ad plays where Ronan Malosi talks about the importance of supporting lesser known wrestling promotions. He doesn’t do a very good job about it though as he only praises the worst wrestlers of each promotion.)
(As Voltage fades back to ringside, ‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi hits and soon after, Myles makes his way to the stage. The virtual crowd immediately begins booing for Myles, but he doesn’t seem to care as he walks down the ramp, and makes his way towards ringside.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen we’ve got one hell of a main event coming our way with Ahren Fournier taking on Sienna Jade with both Myles and SOSA Henderson at ringside!
Rich Russillo: This could be great, or it could be a mess. With both Myles and SOSA here it could really go either way.
Persephone: Jesus Christ.. SOSA, Myles, Ahren, AND Sienna Jade? This is gonna be a nightmare to sit through.
(As ‘Enemy Strike’ fades out, ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef begins to play and SOSA Henderson makes his way out to the stage with the EAW Championship around his waist. As the virtual crowd continues to boo, SOSA walks down the ramp and towards ringside, not really caring about the reaction he receives.)
James Peters: And here comes the Champion! SOSA’s been on a roll as EAW Champ, and to be honest that might continue at Wicked Games, as tonight he has the opportunity to see what Ahren’s bringing to the table.
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen…. The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first….
(‘Starboy’ by the Weeknd hits, and the boos from the virtual crowd grow even louder as Ahren Fournier walks out to the stage. He doesn’t care much about the boos, and as he walks down the ramp he notices his soon to be opponent, EAW Champion SOSA Henderson, who he still doesn’t look too impressed by. Instead he just grins to himself as he continues walking down the ramp, and Bella Braxton begins her introduction.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring…. From Pawtucket, Rhode Island….. Weighing in at 210 pounds… AAAHHRREEENNNNN FFOOOUUUURRRRNNIIEEERRR!!!!
James Peters: And here he is, the number one contender to the EAW Championship! I’m sure Ahren’s feeling pretty good about himself after what happened earlier in the night, but right now he’s gonna want to not pay attention to SOSA if he wants to win his match.
Rich Russillo: That’s true, after all his opponent is a Champion herself, and if the Mint Lads and Jaded Hearts both make it to the finals of the Grand Prix, they may be meeting each other in the ring once again!
Persephone: Who cares, really? It’s the lesser half of both teams fighting. This is gonna be so boring and I really wish I didn’t have to sit here and watch.
(‘Unfuckwithable by Deez Nuts follows, and the virtual crowd continues booing but not as heavily as Sienna Jade makes her way out to the stage with the National Elite Championship around her waist. She begins walking down the ramp, and her and Myles maintain eye contact with each other after the words that were shared between the two last week. The two already don’t like each other, but after a while Sienna finally looks back at Ahren Fournier as she approaches the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent.. Residing in San Diego, California…. Weighing in at 135 pounds….. SHE IS THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, SIEEENNNAAAAA JAAAAAAADDDDEEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: Now there just might be a bit more hostility between Myles and Sienna Jade to be honest. Sienna is everything Myles hates in an Elitist, and I’m positive his words last week rubbed Sienna the wrong way. Hopefully that doesn’t affect her performance tonight, this will be a tough match.
Rich Russillo: Sienna is the National Elite Champion for a reason, James. There’s no way Sienna will allow herself to be distracted by Myles. She’s a professional. What you should be asking is whether or not Ahren and Sienna can win, not if any outside factors will hurt them.
Persephone: I’m with Rich. There’s nothing that can make this match a less exciting main event than it already is, and that includes the two idiots at ringside.
Rich Russillo: Not exactly where I was going with that, but thank you anyway.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And the main event match is underway! Ahren Fournier and Sienna Jade begin circling the ring, and I definitely can’t wait for this one! Two former World Champions competing right now with Sienna Jade’s challenger and the Champion Ahren Fournier’s challenging both at ringside in Myles and SOSA Henderson! The two Elitists look like they might lock up- WAIT! AHREN WENT TO TRY AND ROLL UP SIENNA BUT SIENNA MANAGED TO AVOID IT! Ahren turning around back towards Sienna- AND SIENNA MANAGES TO ROLL AHREN UP INSTEAD! FOR THE QUICK WIN, SIENNA’S GONNA STEAL IT!
Rich Russillo: AHREN KICKS OUT! Sienna immediately grabs him though, AND SHE GOES FOR THE RDG BUT AHREN GETS OUT OF IT BEFORE KICKING SIENNA IN THE MIDSECTION! AHREN RUNNING THE ROPES, STORYBOOK ENDING- NO! SIENNA JADE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, and now we’re right back to where we started! Both Elitists are forced to circle the ring once again, and this time the two lock up! Ahren is able to power Sienna into the corner, and now the referee’s forced to get in between the two to separate them- JUST FOR AHREN TO SLAP SIENNA IN THE FACE!
James Peters: AND NOW SIENNA JUST SLAPPED AHREN BACK IN RETURN! I don’t think Ahren saw that one coming, and now Sienna irish whips Ahren to the ropes! Sienna sliding under Ahren’s legs as Ahren rebounds off of the opposite pair of ropes, AND NOW SIENNA DROPS AHREN WITH A DROPKICK! Ahren’s not down for too long as he soon gets back up to his feet, but Sienna’s able to quickly capitalize with a step up enzuigiri! Ahren’s not doing too hot right now as he’s hanging onto the ropes and heading to the corner, but now Sienna grabs him and sends him into the opposite corner before charging in!
Rich Russillo: AHREN WITH AN ELBOW TO SIENNA’S JAW! Ahren quickly grabbing Sienna, AND NOW HE SENDS HER SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! Just like that Ahren’s found his way back into the match, and now Ahren picks Sienna up and places her on the top turnbuckle before putting her in a tree of woe position. Ahren is now putting his foot at her neck, and he’s just choking Sienna right now! That’s not too good but Ahren has until the count of five still! Very dirty from Ahren but it’s getting the job done nonetheless!
Persephone: Ahren finally let go of Sienna, and if I were him I’d just go for the pin right there but it doesn’t look like he’s ready to just yet. Knowing how this works Sienna’s probably gonna come back and that’s how Ahren’s gonna lose because nobody listens to me and just goes for the pin once they get some offense. All of these people are idiots. Anyways Ahren’s pulled Sienna up to her feet, and it looks like he’s setting up for a back suplex- but as he went for it Sienna managed to flip over onto her feet. What did I tell you-
James Peters: AHREN SAW IT COMING! AS SOON AS SHE LANDED ON HER FEET AND APPROACHED AHREN, AHREN TURNED AROUND AND DROPPED SIENNA WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE! This time Ahren’s going for the cover, and I’m sure Myles is loving this offense from Ahren right now!
James Peters: Sienna gets the shoulder up, but now Ahren puts her in a grounded headlock! Ahren’s had control of this match for a little while, Sienna needs to get back into this! Ahren was just choking her not too long ago and now he has her in a headlock, at this rate he might be able to take her out like this!
Rich Russillo: Not so fast! Sienna managed to wrap her legs around Ahren’s neck and pull him off of her! Both Elitists now getting to their feet, AND SIENNA HITS AHREN WITH A LEG SWEEP! SIENNA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND SHE HITS A JUMPING KNEE DROP ONTO AHREN’S FOREHEAD! Just like that Sienna’s managed to get back into this, but we shouldn’t expect anything less from the National Elite Champion! Ahren’s getting back up, but Sienna’s not giving him any time to recover or get back into this as she immediately hits him with a knee to the midsection before taking him to the corner!
Persephone: Sienna brings Ahren to the corner, and now she’s slamming his face onto the top turnbuckle over and over. Very boring offense, but like Rich said we shouldn’t expect anything less from Sienna Jade. Just the least interesting matches possible since Sienna’s a very lackluster wrestler. At least she’s facing Ahren Fournier so she has someone to match her mediocrity. Speaking of which Ahren managed to grab Sienna and slam her into the turnbuckle to finally stop her, now can someone finish the match please?
James Peters: I don’t think I see this ending too soon! Ahren now with an irish whip to the opposite corner before charging in- AND SIENNA NOW MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! AHREN CRASHES AND BOUNCES OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLES AS SIENNA RUNS THE ROPES, AND SHE SENDS AHREN OUTSIDE OF THE RING WITH A CLOTHESLINE! Ahren was just sent out to ringside and SOSA Henderson is standing right by him, and he looks pretty amused to say the least! Of course both SOSA and Myles can’t actually get involved, otherwise that’ll result in a disqualification.
Rich Russillo: Sienna Jade now rolling under the bottom rope in pursuit of Ahren, and as he gets back up she grabs him and quickly slams him against the barricade! Sienna now looking to send Ahren to the ring post, but Ahren slams his knee into her midsection before sending Sienna into the post herself! Sienna now having to grab onto the apron to even remain standing, but now Ahren grabs her by the hair before slamming her face onto the apron! You can see Myles just shaking his head, and he doesn’t look too impressed with Sienna’s performance right now!
Persephone: Well for once I agree with him, except I’m not just unimpressed with her performance tonight. Sienna’s never been anything special, I don’t know how Kassidy dropped the ball so badly at Pain for Pride. Ahren’s rolling Sienna back into the ring now, and as soon as he re-enters the ring he goes for another cover and for once I have to give Ahren credit because he’s doing the smart thing and trying to end this garbage match already.
James Peters: Well it’s still not ending just yet, Sienna just got the shoulder up! Ahren just grabbed Sienna’s arm before pulling her back to her feet, and now he has her in a ripcord position! THE CLIMAX- NO! SIENNA WITH A FOREARM, AND NOW SHE GETS INTO A RIPCORD POSITION HERSELF! WITCHES HAMMER- NO, THAT DOESN’T CONNECT EITHER! AHREN JUST DUCKED IT BEFORE PICKING SIENNA UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, AND NOW HE CHARGES TO THE CORNER BEFORE DELIVERING A SNAKE EYES TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! What a move by Ahren, but he doesn’t look finished just yet as he runs the ropes! PROTECT YA NECK-
Rich Russillo: SIENNA GETS OUT OF THE WAY AND SENDS AHREN THROUGH THE ROPES- BUT THIS TIME AHREN MANAGES TO STAY ON THE APRON! Sienna pulls Ahren back up to his feet- BUT AHREN GOUGES AT SIENNA’S EYES AS THE REFEREE CAN’T SEE IT! Ahren now heading up to the top rope- HEY WAIT A MINUTE! SOSA’S GRABBING AHREN’S LEG SO HE CAN’T GET TO THE TOP ROPE, AND NOW AHREN’S YELLING AT SOSA! The referee noticed it and is telling SOSA to let go unless he wants to be disqualified, and SOSA lets go! Ahren now heading back up top-
James Peters: JUST FOR SIENNA TO BEAT HIM UP THERE AS SHE HITS HIM WITH A HUGE KNEE! Sienna now is on the middle rope, and it looks like she’s setting up for something big! Sienna is trying to set up for a superplex- BUT AHREN HITS SIENNA WITH A HUGE HEADBUTT, CAUSING HER TO DROP DOWN FROM THE TURNBUCKLES! Now it’s Ahren on the top rope alone- but instead of diving he just drops down from the top! Last week Ahren nearly lost his contendership match after being taken out as he went for a top rope dive, so I think he may have just made the right choice as Sienna’s still on her feet!
Rich Russillo: That’s right, AND SIENNA JUST WENT FOR A JUMPING ENZUIGIRI BUT AHREN DUCKED UNDER IT! AHREN NOW PULLING SIENNA UP FROM BEHIND, AND HE DROPS HER WITH THE CLIMAX! I THINK THAT MIGHT BE IT! SOSA tried costing Ahren the match, but I think Ahren’s about to get the job done anyway!
Rich Russillo: ONCE AGAIN SIENNA MANAGES TO KICK OUT! Sienna has taken everything Ahren’s thrown at her thus far, and you’ve gotta give Sienna credit for how much she’s been able to take in this match so far!
Persephone: Kicking out of Ahren Fournier’s moves isn’t really impressive. Maybe for Sienna Jade it is since she’s Sienna Jade, but for anyone with any talent Ahren Fournier is basically a free win. I guess not anyone can be as good as Rex McAllister, ah well. Anyways, I think Ahren’s about ready to end the match, thank God. Hopefully he doesn’t fumble it again and actually gets the job done. He pretty much lucked out last week but this isn’t a triple threat so he’s actually gonna have to put in some effort.
James Peters: Okay then… Like Persephone said Ahren looks ready to finish this match, AND I THINK AHREN’S SENDING UP FOR A SUPLEX- BUT SIENNA SLIPS OUT OF IT! Sienna stumbles into the corner and hops onto the middle rope, AND SHE KICKS AHREN AWAY AS HE CHARGES IN- BEFORE HITTING HIM WITH A DIVING HURRICANRANA! These two are hitting each other with everything they can think of just to even stay in the match, and it looks like Sienna’s found a way to at least buy her enough time to recover!
Rich Russillo: Ahren’s crawled into the opposite corner, and now Sienna’s just stomping away at him! Sienna with multiple stomps at Ahren’s face, and now she runs the ropes before delivering a huge running facewash! Sienna pulling Ahren back to his feet- AND NOW AHREN LIFTS SIENNA UP- BUT SIENNA QUICKLY SLIPS BEHIND HIM BEFORE DELIVERING THE WITCHES HAMMER! I don’t know where that came from with Ahren, but in the end Sienna didn’t let him capitalize and now this match might actually be over! Sienna’s going for the cover now, no way this isn’t it!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, MYLES JUST WALKED BY AND PUT AHREN’S FOOT ON THE ROPE!
James Peters: AND THE REFEREE NOTICES THE ROPES! The referee just caught the rope break but not Myles! SOSA and Myles are looking at each other, and I think it’s pretty obvious they’re both rooting for different people here! SOSA tried screwing Ahren over earlier, and Myles may have just saved Ahren from
this match ending! Sienna’s looking outside of the ring, and just from the look on Myles’ face I think she’s realized what happened! She definitely had that match won, but now she needs to keep going to make sure Ahren doesn’t get back into the match!
Persephone: Now why would Myles do that? I’m sure he doesn’t care about Ahren Fournier, did he really need to do that just to mess with Sienna? Now this awful match has to continue and I hate it. I want this to just end already so badly and who knows when that’s gonna happen now? What an idiot. If he loses to Sienna at Wicked Games, this is why, and to be honest he deserves to lose after a stunt like that. Whatever, Sienna better hurry and finish this up.
James Peters: Sienna’s looking down at Ahren before looking up at the top rope, and I think she has something in mind! Sienna’s staying inside the ring to climb up top as she sees how close both Myles and SOSA are to her, and I think I know exactly what she’s going for! STARSTRUCK!!!! THE MOONSAULT CONNECT- WAIT A MINUTE! NO IT DIDN’T! AHREN GOT THE KNEES UP, AND NOW HE PULLS SIENNA INTO A PIN!
James Peters: SIENNA KICKED OUT, BUT NOW BOTH ELITISTS ARE DOWN! Ahren just saved himself this time by getting the knees up, and he possibly could’ve won right then and there! Sienna got really lucky, and now Ahren’s rolling himself out of the ring!
Rich Russillo: Ahren sees SOSA and Myles and purposefully walks the opposite direction from them knowing that they’re not scared to get involved. Ahren’s taking some much needed time to recover, and now Sienna Jade rolls out as well as she realizes where Ahren is! Sienna charges towards Ahren, AND SHE JUMPS ONTO THE STEEL STEPS BEFORE DIVING OFF OF THEM WITH A METEORA! WHAT A MOVE BY SIENNA JADE, AND JUST LIKE THAT SHE’S BACK IN THIS!
Persephone: Ummm… I don’t think so.
James Peters: Yeah, Sienna did some damage to herself with that meteora! Double knees all the way to the floor are bound to do that to you. It doesn’t look like Sienna’s slowed down too much though, as she’s able to roll Ahren back into the ring from there! Sienna slides back into the ring- AND AHREN GOES FOR THE SUPERKICK TO THE SHIN, AND NOW THERE’S THE SUPERKICK TO THE FACE! AHREN JUST HIT HIS OWN “STAR STRUCK”, AND NOW AHREN PULLS SIENNA AWAY FROM THE ROPES BEFORE GOING FOR THE COVER! NO ROPE BREAKS THIS TIME, I THINK THIS IS DONE!
Rich Russillo: NO!! SIENNA KICKS OUT ON HER OWN! Ahren can’t believe it, and he slams his hands onto the mat- BUT WAIT A SECOND! SIENNA NOW JUST GRABBED ONE OF AHREN’S ARMS AND LOCKED IN A FUJIWARA ARMBAR! SIENNA HAS A FUJIWARA ARMBAR LOCKED IN ON AHREN, AND THIS COULD BE ALL SIENNA NEEDS TO GET THE JOB DONE! AHREN WASN’T EXPECTING THAT CLEARLY, I DIDN’T THINK SHE HAD ANYTHING LEFT IN HER AFTER THAT SUPERKICK BUT CLEARLY WE WERE BOTH WRONG! SIENNA MIGHT HAVE THIS MATCH WON, AND AHREN PULLED SIENNA AWAY FROM THE ROPES BEFORE THE PIN SO HE’S GONNA HAVE A TOUGH TIME GETTING THERE!
Persephone: Wait, so Ahren basically screwed himself over? Alright, that’s honestly hilarious. Ahren’s really about to lose the match because he was scared SOSA would do the same thing Myles did to Sienna, now he has nowhere to go and is gonna have to tap out to the Fuji-whatever you call it armbar! Thank God this match is about to end, I really didn’t wanna sit through any more of this snoozefest. Two of the worst World Champions in recent memory having a garbage match, I definitely expected that.
James Peters: Well, we all know you’re not easy to please. Anyways Ahren’s doing his best to try and crawl towards the ropes, but Sienna has that submission locked in as tightly as she can! Sienna might really injure Ahren if she keeps this up, Ahren needs to hurry and get to the ropes or just get out of the submission on his own! Ahren’s getting closer and closer to the ropes- BUT LOOK AT THAT! SOSA’S PULLING THE ROPES AWAY FROM AHREN! SOSA’S STOPPING AHREN FROM REACHING THE ROPES AND NOW THE REFEREE IS TELLING HIM OFF! The referee’s yelling at SOSA now as this is the second time he’s caught SOSA cheating- AND THAT JUST GAVE MYLES THE OPPORTUNITY TO PULL SIENNA OFF OF AHREN!
Rich Russillo: These two are just getting involved any way they can at this point! This is just wrong, but it clearly doesn’t matter to Myles and SOSA. Both Sienna and Ahren don’t look too happy with what’ll soon be their opponents at Wicked Games, but right now they don’t have any other choice but to focus on their current match! Both Elitists are getting back up to their feet- AND NOW SIENNA ROLLS AHREN UP!
Rich Russillo: AHREN KICKS OUT, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE STORYBOOK ENDING, BUT SIENNA GETS OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE TAKING AHREN DOWN WITH A BACKSLIDE PIN! Ahren manages to kick out immediately though- JUST FOR SIENNA TO DROP AHREN WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!
Persephone: Wow this match is taking forever to end. For what though? Neither of them are very good, are they just both so equally garbage that they can’t get the win over each other? It doesn’t make any sense to me.
James Peters: Ahren’s using the ropes to get back up, and now Sienna grabs him but Ahren goes for a right hand- just for Sienna to catch it and hit Ahren with one instead! Ahren goes for another, but he gets the same result! Ahren’s in a bit of trouble as he’s backed into the corner, and now Sienna kicks him in the midsection before choking him with the ropes until the count of four! That’s the type of aggression that helped Sienna win the National Elite Championship in the first place, and stuff like that is needed if she wants to retain it against Myles at Wicked Games!
Rich Russillo: Ahren on the other hand has been doing well up until the last few minutes. Ahren needs to find a way back into the match really badly, otherwise I think Sienna’s got this in the bag. Sienna now is pulling Ahren up and it looks like she’s going for another Witches Hammer- BUT THIS TIME AHREN MANAGES TO STOP IT AS HE LIFTS SIENNA UP AND DROPS HER WITH A MICHINOKU DRIVER! You don’t see that very often from Ahren, but at a time like this he’s bringing everything he’s got to the table!
Persephone: BOOORRRIIIINNNGG!!!! What Ahren needs to do is pin her already so we can let this trash match end. This is literally the final match of the night, I don’t wanna be here anymore so they better hurry this up.
James Peters: AHREN IS TRYING TO SET UP THE CROSSFACE CHICKENWING BUT SIENNA IS ABLE TO GRAB ONTO THE ROPES! SIENNA STAYING ON THE ROPES AND NOW AHREN’S IMMEDIATELY FORCED TO RELEASE THE HOLD! Ahren now pulling Sienna towards the center of the ring- BUT SIENNA RAMS AHREN INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! Sienna doing whatever she can to stop Ahren from getting in any more offense, and now she’s unloading on Ahren! Sienna with a series of punches on Ahren Fournier- BUT AHREN GETS BOTH FEET UP AND PUSHES SIENNA AWAY!
Rich Russillo: AHREN GRABS SIENNA AND HE ATTEMPTS A NECKBREAKER, BUT SIENNA MANAGES TO PUSH AHREN AWAY! SIENNA NOW GOES TO CLOTHESLINE AHREN OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT AHREN DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE AND CAUSES SIENNA TO BOUNCE OFF OF THE ROPES, AND AHREN JUST TRIPS SIENNA AS SHE FALLS BACKWARDS! AHREN GOES FOR THE COVER AND SIENNA QUICKLY KICKS OUT, AND BOTH ELITISTS QUICKLY GET BACK UP!
James Peters: SIENNA JUST ATTEMPTED A DROPKICK AND AHREN BARELY MANAGED TO AVOID IT! AHREN RUNNING THE ROPES- BUT SIENNA TAKES AHREN DOWN WITH A SCHOOL BOY PIN, JUST FOR AHREN TO IMMEDIATELY KICK OUT! BOTH ELITISTS GET BACK UP ONCE AGAIN AS AHREN BACKS INTO THE CORNER, AND AS SIENNA CHARGES IN AHREN TOSSES HER UP TO THE TOP ROPE! SIENNA GETS IN POSITION, AND SHE TAKES AHREN DOWN WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY! This might just be the perfect opportunity, Sienna’s headed out to the apron and I think I know exactly what she’s setting up for!
Rich Russillo: Sienna’s waiting for Ahren to get back to his feet, and slowly Ahren’s getting back up but I don’t think that’s what he should be doing right now! He doesn’t seem to realize what’s about to happen! Sienna getting ready, AND SHE GOES FOR- WAIT A SECOND! THIS TIME IT’S MYLES THAT GRABBED ONTO SIENNA’S LEG! MYLES GRABBED SIENNA’S LEG, AND AS SOON AS SIENNA TURNS TOWARDS MYLES HE LETS GO OF HER! SIENNA DOESN’T LOOK TOO HAPPY AND SHE’S TELLING THE REFEREE TO GET RID OF MYLES AND SOSA, BUT SHE NEEDS TO KEEP HER HEAD IN THE MATCH!
James Peters: Nevermind that, Ahren’s in perfect position, and he still hasn’t recovered yet! This match looks like it’s about to end regardless of Myles’ distraction! Sienna finally dropping her argument with the referee, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR RAW SIENNA- NO! AHREN HAD ENOUGH TIME TO RUN UP TO THE ROPES AND CAUSE SIENNA TO HAVE TO JUMP OVER HIM! BOTH ELITISTS RUN INTO EACH OTHER- BUT THIS TIME IT’S AHREN ROLLING SIENNA UP! AHREN’S ROLLING HER UP AND I THINK MYLES MAY HAVE JUST COST SIENNA JADE THE MATCH!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner….. AAAAAAAHHHHHRRREEEEENNNNNNN FFOOOUUUURRRRNNNIIIEERRRRE!!!!!
(‘Starboy’ hits, and Ahren Fournier gets to his feet and immediately has the referee raise his hand with a grin on his face. Sienna is getting back to her feet and she can’t believe what just happened, meanwhile both SOSA Henderson and Myles are slowly getting into the ring.)
James Peters: Just like that Ahren managed to steal the win, and it’s all thanks to a distraction from Myles! Those two have been interfering all match, and it looks like Myles managed to get the better of- HEY WAIT A SECOND!
Rich Russillo: SIENNA’S GOING RIGHT AFTER MYLES! SIENNA PUNCHING AWAY AT MYLES, BUT MYLES MANAGES TO PUSH HER AWAY! MYLES WITH A BICYCLE KNEE- NO! SIENNA MOVED OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE GRABBING MYLES FROM
BEHIND, WITCHES HAMMER! Sienna Jade just hit Myles with the Witches Hammer, and now she sends him out of the ring with a clothesline!
James Peters: Sienna Jade just grabbed her National Elite Championship- AND NOW SHE SLAMS IT ACROSS MYLES FACE AS HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! LOOK IN THE RING! SOSA JUST SLAMMED HIS EAW CHAMPIONSHIP INTO AHREN’S FACE! SOSA now heading up to the top rope while Ahren Fournier is down, AND THERE IT IS! PAID IN FULL!!! Both Champions just took out their challengers heading into Wicked Games!
Persephone: Meh. Rex could take all four of them out. By himself too. Just put him in a handicap match against them, I bet you he’ll win.
James Peters: Alright Persephone.. Anyways, that’s all for Voltage, and Sienna Jade may have lost tonight but it’s clear she’s ready for Wicked Games. SOSA Henderson got the better of Ahren tonight as well, so I guess we’ll see what’s to come.
(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits, and both SOSA Henderson and Sienna Jade hold up their Championships as both Myles and Ahren Fournier have been taken out. The virtual crowd gives a mixed reaction for the two Elitists, and finally Voltage fades out for the final time in the night.)
