(EAW intro plays.)
(A Recap of Last weeks Voltage begins to play, as we see Ahren Fournier opening up with his latest “Le GOAT Show” talking about SOSA Henderson after winning the Triple Threat for the Number One Contendership at Wicked Games, then SOSA coming down and Ahren getting the better of him. Donovan Duke with a huge win over Ben Roth, then it transitions to Ms. Extreme and Shane Gates going at each other after his heinous attack on her the prior week. Lisa Wren didn’t like her flowers from Duke, laying out the challenge to him and Azrael in which Duke accepted but was attacked by the monster. TNT then fell victim in a match against Azrael. TLA and Drake King had a confrontation leading into their huge match at Wicked Games, which TLA laid it down reminding Drake what he has in store. Ms. Extreme had a huge victory over one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Sierra Bradford but Parental Advisory provided some distraction while on commentary. Molly Waters interviewed Minerva which turned nasty and a brawl ensued when Terry Chambers walked in after their Triple Threat last week, claiming he had her pinned. Korey Gaines scored the win of Shane Gates, Candice Blair and Kensingten Calhoun-Astor had a face to face leading to a match at Wicked Games, then transitioned to an incredible match with Candice and Jesse Barlow which Kensingten ended up costing Candice by Disqualification. Next the Corona Hombres faced off against MASOHISTxMANIFEST in a Grand Prix first round matchup where Drake King was able to get involved, causing Terry to get pinned by Minerva with his foot under the rope and the referee didn’t catch it. Sofia Clarke talks to Kasey Kaos about her Specialists Finals against Veena Adams who was unsuspectedly attacked by Kaos backstage. Darcy May Morgan and Malcolm Jones continued their disagreement about Drake King leading into a match against the two of them at Wicked Games. Myles cost Sienna Jade the Main Event against Ahren Fournier but it ended with Sienna and Myles brawling while SOSA Henderson was able to get a measure of revenge and take Ahren down.)
(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 episode of Sunday Night Voltage as it is the LAST stop before Wicked Games here tonight! As always, I am James Peters and joining me tonight are my broadcast colleagues, Rich Russillo, and Persephone Tsitsipas! We have pretty much an FPV Card tonight right here!
Rich Russillo: We sure do! Drake King goes one on one with Terry Chambers and we know that man is not in a good mood, match made earlier this week against Minerva at Wicked games, speaking of the Gypsy Moth, her and Myles go up against the Unified World Tag Team Champions, the Realm! We have the odd team of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor teaming with Candice Blair against Lisa Wren and Shane Gates. The FIRST Second Round Match of the Grand Prix, The Jaded Hearts, the Tag Team of the Decade take on the undefeated Maidens of Malpractice, something has to give and what about Darcy May Morgan takes on the number one contender for the EAW World Championship, Ahren Fournier and the main event, SOSA Henderson, THE Champion will face TLA, ALL of this and so much more, what a great card!
Persephone: I don’t see Rexy on there, this card sucks.
James Peters: So insightful is the beautiful Persephone, but we are not going to waste any time as there is a jam-packed show tonight, so let’s go to the ring with Bella Braxton for the first match of the night!
(The camera transitions to the ring and Bella Braxton)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is the opening match of Voltage and it is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, he hails from Cork, Ireland, weighing in at 233 pounds, he is “THE REBEL CITY REJECT” CASH COLEMAN!!!!
(“Bartholomew” by The Silent Comedy starts to play, when the riff starts after the opening chorus, Cash comes out, looks at the crowd for a brief moment before smirking and walking down to the ring. If his opponent is in the ring, he stares them down until he gets to the ring. When he gets to right before the ring, he gets down on both knees, says a prayer, and quickly rolls into the ring, eyes never leaving the entranceway. As his music fades, How You Like Me Now by the Heavy begins to play as Eddie Magnum slowly appears in the entrance.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, he hails from Boston, MA.! Weighing in at 213 pounds! “THE REAL DEAL” EDDIE MAGNUM!!!!
(Eddie Magnum smirks, dancing some down the ramp. The entire time he mouths the words to the song. As he rolls under the ropes into the ring, he kips up and yells “welcome to my world now bitches!” with his arms extended outward. Cash Coleman is not impressed.)
James Peters: Two newcomers here one from Dynasty in Cash Coleman and one for Voltage in Eddie Magnum, we get to see a glimpse into the future.
Persephone: Are you being serious right now, that one idiot is praying and the other came down dancing!?
Rich Russillo: And either one of these guys could end up being a future Champion here in the EAW.
(The referee calls for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(Cash and Magnum circle the ring, locking up, Cash quickly arm drags Magnum to the mats, but Eddie gets up and smirks, circling the ring again.)
James Peters: We get our first look at Eddie Magnum, Voltage’s newest acquisition and Cash Coleman, Dynasty’s newest acquisition, something has to give tonight and let us see exactly what the future holds! They lock up again, Cash with a huge slam surprising Eddie, he crawls to the corner and slowly gets back up, trying to test one another, as they lock up again, this time Eddie with an arm drag! Cash is back up, Eddie with a hip toss! Cash back up and now Eddie with a huge dropkick! Cash Coleman falls to the mats and uses the ropes to get up. Eddie starts to dance, as Cash looks annoyed.
Rich Russillo: He is a bit of a showoff and with the type of roster we have here on Voltage, he will be eaten alive but right now it seems like both men are even! Here we go, Cash and Eddie tie… NO! Cash with a vicious kick and another and another, he grabs Eddie and whips him into the turnbuckle! Magnum hits hard! Stumbling out of the corner and Cash with a huge lariat! He picks up Eddie, a couple of forearms, he is backing him up to the ropes, Cash with another forearm, he whips Eddie into the ropes going for a back-body drop, no! Eddie lands on his feet, GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE BRIDGE!
Rich Russillo: Cash with a kick out! But we are seeing the strength of Cash and the speed of Magnum! Eddie is back up, climbing to the second rope, he waits as Cash is up, FLYING BODYPRESS BY MAGNUM! NO HE IS CAUGHT BY CASH, TURNS IT INTO A SIDE SUPLEX! MAGNUM HITS HARD AS CASH GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: I know this match just started but these two guys are like boring. And another kick out.
James Peters: These are two potential future stars in the EAW! Come on, Persephone show some respect here.
Persephone: Ha ha… right.
James Peters: Cash has Eddie in trouble, picking him, front face lock into a nice powerful suplex! Textbook and this wrestler, Cash Coleman reminds me of the old school style, it is no nonsense, and he hits hard. That suplex, can’t take too many of those! Cash grabs Eddie back to his feet, whips him into a short clothesline, no Eddie ducks and he hits Cash with the Worst Combo Ever! A eye poke, foot stomp, kick out other knee, superkick! That was quite interesting, and Eddie now is down on his knees blatantly choking Cash! He wants to finish this match quick!
(Eddie Magnum lets go of the choke.)
Rich Russillo: Eddie and Cash will obviously do whatever it takes to win so you can’t blame either guy for that. They want to succeed in the land of the elite and well, this is their chance to do so! Eddie is in control, Cash is slowly getting up, Eddie bouncing off the ropes, SHINING WIZARD! He landed that hard on Cash. Eddie is now climbing the ropes, he is at the top and MOONSAULT! HE LANDED IT AND NOW HE IS GOING FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: CASH KICKS OUT! HE IS NOT DONE YET! EDDIE MAGNUM THOUGH IS IMPRESSIVE TONIGHT, HE IS SHOWING OFF SOME OF THOSE SKILLS! EDDIE WAITS, Cash is getting up slowly, Eddie runs at him again, a Hurricanrana…. NO! CASH HOLDS HIM AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO A POWERBOMB! CASH FOLDED HIM OVER LIKE AN ACCORDION AND HE IS GOING FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: EDDIE MAGNUM SOMEHOW KICKS OUT! Cash is looking at the referee who is shaking his head! He is telling Cash that Eddie is still in this, and wow, what a match we have right now! Both of these young men want to make an impression, a huge impression and that is exactly what they are doing right now! Cash is not wasting time, he picks up Eddie, runs at him, Line of Fire! The running knee connects on Eddie Magnum! Cash hoists him up by the hair and off the ropes, Bulldog! Cash turns Eddie over for the cover!
Persephone: Come on, don’t kick out!
Rich Russillo: Eddie Magnum still in this and now Cash is asking himself what he has to do to take out this guy. Cash is on him though and it looks like a piledriver is coming, he lifts him up, NO! EDDIE WITH A BACK BODY DROP! CASH LANDS HARD ON THE MAT! HE GETS UP AND TURNS RIGHT INTO DON’T LOOK UP! CASH CRASHES INTO THE MAT! EDDIE MAGNUM IS CLIMBING THE ROPES! POINT OF NO RETURN! NO CASH ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! MAGNUM RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES; CASH GETS UP AND THE SILVER BULLET KICK! NO! CASH DUCKS AND EDDIE MISSES! HE IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET THOUGH AND HE TURNS, CASH GOES FOR A RUNNING BOOT! NO! EDDIE DUCKS, CASH STUMBLES FORWARD, EDDIE WITH A REVERSE HURRICANRANA! HE GOT HIM OVER!
James Peters: HE DID! EDDIE IS QUICK AND HE IS SIGNALING FOR SOMETHING! A DOUBLE SUPERKICK! HE GOES FOR THE FIRST JUST AS CASH STOOD UP, NO! HE GRABS HIS LEG AND KICKED HIM IN THE GROIN! THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE THAT! EDDIE IS STUNNED, A KICK TO THE GUT AND SETTING HIM UP FOR THE PALE RIDER! THE JUMPING PILEDRIVER CONNECTS AND EDDIE IS DOWN! CASH WITH THE COVER!
Persephone: Yes! Please end this Cash!
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH…. CASH COLEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Bartholomew” by The Silent Comedy plays as the referee raises the hand of Cash Coleman. Eddie Magnum slowly rolls out of the ring to the floor as Cash stands up and on the second rope, hurting some and wincing but looks at the virtual crowd happy with his first victory in EAW.)
James Peters: Both men came to wrestle tonight, and they put on their talent on display. These two men have a bright future in the EAW both on Dynasty and Voltage. Cash the winner tonight, I am sure we haven’t seen the last of this.
Rich Russillo: We have not, Eddie Magnum had a great performance, but Cash outsmarted him and got away with a little tomfoolery. Either way, a great match and debut for both men.
Persephone: Let’s not overexaggerate here.
(Cash continues to celebrate as Eddie looks on holding the back of his neck, waiting for another chance.)
(Commercial promoting new EAW Halloween costumes, this time featuring Kasey Kaos face paint.)
(Voltage returns from the break as Bella Braxton is standing in the ring, ready to announce the competitors for the second match of the evening!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a singles match scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“No Sleep Leak Instrumental” By Lil Uzi Vert begins to play as “The Skill Of X” Puma X walks out of the curtain. A serious look on his face as he begins to stroll down the entrance ramp, Smiling as he hears the virtual crowd chanting “X” towards him)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Oakland, California and weighing in at 185 pounds, he is “The Skill Of X” PUMA X!!!!!!!
James Peter: This young man Puma X is one of the most exciting athletes EAW has seen in quite a while. The energy he gives off is just infectious!
Rich Russillo: Yeah yeah sure the kid’s got some spirit but he’s gonna have to do more than just smile and flip around if he’s gonna become a legit player here.
Persephone: Blah blah blah can he hurry up and get in the ring so they can get this over with, I don’t wanna see these fucking losers any longer than i have too, I just wanna see my Rexy where is he!?
James Peters: Sorry Persephone, but I don’t think you’ll be seeing Rex tonight.
(Puma slides into the ring and heads to his corner as “No Sleep Leak Instrumental” fades out.)
(“Girei” By Yasuharo Takanashi begins to play as the virtual crowd beings to boo loudly. Azrael walks out from the curtain, accompanied by his brother Mr. Jacobs as he begins to walk to the ring, a dark look in his eyes as his freakish mask stares at Puma X.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from The Warehouse, weighing in at 290 pounds, He…Is….AZRAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: Jesus this freak gives me the creeps, where does EAW keep finding weirdo’s like this.
James Peter: There’s certainly a dark feeling in the air anytime Azrael makes his way into the ring, no doubt in my mind that Donovan Duke and Lisa Wren are both watching this monster very closely.
Rich Russillo: Well if i was Donovan and Lisa i’d be pissing my pants right about now, that right there is a certified monster and i’d be terrified if i knew i had to step in the ring with that freak!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peter: Puma X and Azrael circling each other AS PUMA X LAUNCHES HIMSELF AT AZRAEL WITH A HUGE KICK TO THE FACE OF THE MONSTER! Azrael was knocked senseless as he falls out of the ring!!!
Rich Russillo: PUMA X LOOKING TO FLY, HE SOARS OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A HUGE TOPE CON HILO-WAIT NO, OH MY GOD AZRAEL CAUGHT HIM!!!!!
James Peters: :Krabs:
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL PLANTS PUMA X WITH A POWERBOMB ON THE FLOOR, JESUS CHRIST THE IMPACT!!!
Persephone: Oh walk it off Pussy, if Puma X was half the man Rexy was he’d get up right then and there and punch that ugly demon freak in the throat!
James Peters: Ignoring Persephone’s thirsting, back inside the ring now as Azrael once again presses the assault on Puma X, throttling Puma X against the corner of the ring with vicious rights and lefts. Puma X has been absolutely throttled by this monster!!
Rich Russillo: Puma X knew walking into this damn match that this wasn’t gonna be easy, damnit i get the kid wants to challenge himself but Azrael is just such a dominating force. Puma X is gonna have to try and find a way to get back up and fight or this isn’t gonna last long at all, come on kid fight!
Persephone: Boringggggggg, can one of these idiot’s hurry up and kill each other so this can be over with? I have better things to do then sit here and watch this garbage.
James Peters: Mr. Jacobs on the ring apron now barking orders at Azrael, telling him to inflict further punishment on Puma X.
Mr. Jacobs: RIP HIS FUCKING FACE OFF AZRAEL! MAKE HIM A GOD DAMN EXAMPLE!
James Peters: AZRAEL NOW BITING THE FACE OF PUMA X! SOMEBODY GET THIS MONSTER OFF HIM!
Persephone: DON’T GET HIM OFF, BITE HIS NOSE OFF!
Rich Russillo: Oh god say it again Persephone my queen :blessed:
James Peters: :dahell:
Rich Russillo: What?
James Peters: Uh…Anyway back to the in-ring action as the referee has finally gotten Azrael off of Puma X, Puma looks like he’s finally got a minute to catch his-WAIT A MINUTE, THE REF HAS HIS BACK TURNED AND MR JACOBS IS STRANGLING PUMA X WITH SOMETHING! REF TURN AROUND!
Rich Russillo: Damn that is absolute genius! Azrael getting the ref’s attention with his brutality and allowing Jacobs to get involved, you may not like it but you have to admit that’s smart as hell.
James Peters: I don’t have to admit to anything other than that’s just cheating! Azrael now charging Puma X BUT PUMA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS AZRAEL CRASHES INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! PUMA STILL HAS SOME FIGHT IN HIM AS HE IS UNLEASHING ON AZRAEL!
Rich Russillo: HARD RIGHTS AND LEFTS FROM PUMA AS HE LOOKS TO HAVE THE MONSTER ROCKED, PUMA NOW WITH A SERIES OF KICKS TO THE LEGS! TRYING TO CUT THE MONSTER DOWN! PUMA X WITH A HEAD FULL OF STEAM, BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH X-CUTTER! THE HANDSPRING CUTTER!
James Peters: PUMA’S GONNA DO THIS, PUMA’S GONNA KNOCK OFF AZRAEL!!!! PUMA HOOKS THE LEG, THE REFEREE DOWN FOR THE COUNT!
James Peters: AZRAEL KICKED OUT AT ONE WHAT THE FUCK!!!! AZRAEL KICKED OUT AT ONE AND PUMA X IS STUNNED!!!
Rich Russillo: ITS LIKE YOU CAN’T PUT THE BASTARD DOWN!!! HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE, WHAT IS IT GONNA TAKE TO PUT THIS MONSTER DOWN??!?!?!?!?!
Persephone: Jesus christ we finally have some excitement in this dumpster fire of a match, come on Azzy or what ever your freaky name is and kill him! Kill him so i can watch something else please!!!!
Rich Russillo: If you want you can kill me, i totally consent baby!
James Peters: Will you two weirdos stop it! Azrael making his way to his feet now as Puma-X is flying all over the ring trying to keep this monster off his feet! PUMA PLANTS HIM WITH A SLINGSHOT NECKBREAKER!!! PUMA KEEPING UP THE MOMENTUM AS HE NAILS AZRAEL WITH A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! PUMA’S NOT FINISHED YET AS HE NAILS A PICTURE PERFECT SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! PUMA IS UNLOADING EVERYTHING HE HAS TO PUT AZRAEL DOWN!
Rich Russillo: The desperation in Puma-X’s eye’s tell the story, this is a young man fighting for his life!!!! PUMA INTO THE COVER; THIS COULD BE IT!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!-
James Peters: AZRAEL KICKS OUT AGAIN! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!
Persephone: Pleaseeeee for the love of god somebody throw in a towel or something, if Rexy was in there he would have killed these two bozo’s in 5 seconds flat, this has been such a waste of time.
Rich Russillo: Puma-X looks absolutely stunned here, he can not believe Azrael kicked out after all of that, fuck i can’t believe it myself, this guy isn’t human!!!
James Peters: Puma-X slamming his hands into the mat in frustration as Azrael begins to stir again. Puma-X see’s it and runs towards Azrael, looking to level the beast with a big kick-AZRAEL CATCHES THE KICK! AZRAEL MUSCLES PUMA-X UP AND SLAMS HIM WITH A THUNDEROUS POWERBOMB!
Rich Russillo: MY GOD WHAT A POWERBOMB! Azrael looks down at the fallen Puma-X and grabs him by the hair, lifting him up and slapping him hard across the face before launching him across the ring with a gigantic Biel Toss! Puma-X stirs in the corner but Azrael meets him with a thunderous Clothesline in the corner, Azrael keeps up the assault as he grabs Puma-X by the neck and shot puts him into the ground with a massive Chokeslam!
Mr. Jacobs: (off mic) END IT AZRAEL!!!!!!
James Peters: Azrael lifts the dead weight of Puma-X and once again delivers a massive Chokeslam, Puma-X’s body making a sickening thud noise as he connects against the mat! Azrael is screaming like a wild beast as he has gone absolutely feral! Azrael picks up Puma-X again and Irish Whips him into the ropes BUT PUMA-X FIRES BACK WITH A RODILLA DRAGON KNEE STRIKE! THE KNEE ROCKS THE MONSTER AS PUMA-X ONCE AGAIN LOOKS TO TAKE CONTROL! PUMA-X WITH ONE LAST GASP OF ENERGY, IT LOOKS LIKE AS HE ASCENDS TO THE TOP ROPE, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR THE DOUBLE SHOT X, THE SWERVE STOMP!
Rich Russillo: PUMA-X HAS GOT TO BE FASTER, AZRAEL’S ALREADY STARTING TO GET UP! PUMA-X TO THE TOP ROPE AS HE FLIES OFF WITH THE DOUBLE SHOT X! AND IT CONNECTS-WAIT A MINUTE OH MY GOD!!!
James Peters: MY GOD AZRAEL CAUGHT HIM WITH THE LAST BREATH, THE MANDIBLE CLAW! AZRAEL SHOVING HIS GLOVED HAND DOWN THE THROAT OF PUMA-X AS PUMA IS STRUGGLING TO FIGHT BACK AND STAY ALIVE! PUMA-X THROWING WILD PUNCHES AND SLAPS BUT AZRAEL IS JUST NOT LETTING GO!!!
Persephone: SOME MORE EXCITEMENT FINALLY :blessed: KILL HIM AZRAEL KILL HIM!!!!
James Peters: AZRAEL IS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF PUMA-X WITH THIS MANDIBLE CLAW AND PUMA-X IS ON THE VERGE OF SUBMITTING NO DOUBT!!!!!
Rich Russillo: PUMA-X IS GONNA HAVE TO GIVE UP HERE IF WANTS TO KEEP HIS CAREER, THIS MOVE COULD ENDANGER HIS ENTIRE RUN HERE IN EAW IF HE DOESN’T GIVE UP!
James Peters: PUMA-X IS TAPPING!!!! HE’S TAPPING!!! AZRAEL HAS WON AGAIN!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…AZRAEL!!!!!
James Peters: That was an absolute war and what a valiant effort on the part of Puma-X but in the end Azrael once again proves to be an absolutely dominating force in the ring! Who the hell is gonna stop this guy??????
Rich Russillo: That was so brutal to watch man. Props to Puma-X for sticking with it and trying to fight back but this was a mauling, Azrael is such a force of nature I genuinely don’t know if anything or anyone can stop this freak!
Persephone: God that took forever to end, would have been better if my Rexy had been apart of it and killed these two losers like the alpha male he is :hearteyes:
James Peters: Wait a minute guys Azrael’s not leaving the ring…
(Mr. Jacobs looks at Azrael with a sickening look of glee on his face as he points at the fallen Puma-X)
James Peters: AZRAEL BACK ON THE ASSAULT MY GOD! AZRAEL JUMPING ON TOP OF PUMA-X AND DELIVERING WILD PUNCHES AND SCRATCHES TO HIS FACE, SOMEONE GET THIS MONSTER OUT OF HERE!!!!!

James Peters: OH MY GOD! AZRAEL WITH THE BURIAL TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER ONTO THE CHAIR, PUMA-X’s NECK MAY BE BROKEN!!!! SOMEONE GET SECURITY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!
Rich Russillo: Puma-X brought this on himself! I hate to say it but he should have just given up when Azrael put the Claw on and saved himself this beating.

Rich Russillo: AND NOW LOOK AT THIS, AZRAEL PUTTING THE LAST BREATH MANDIBLE CLAW ON PUMA AGAIN!
James Peters: JACOBS PLEASE GET YOUR BROTHER OFF OF PUMA-X, SHOW SOME HUMANITY MAN!
Mr. Jacobs: (off mic) Enough Azrael! That’s enough brother, I think your point has been made.
(Azrael lets go of the Mandible Claw as his brother beckons him to come towards him, Mr. Jacobs and Azrael leave the ring together and slowly head back up the entrance ramp as EMT’s and Referee’s scramble towards the ring to check on the clearly injured Puma-X as Voltage heads to a commercial break)
(Commercial for Komatsu Ogawa’s encyclopedia, complete with information about literally anything you could think of.)
(The camera pans to ringside, where it’s completely decked out in a candy aesthetic. The ramp to the ring is in completely different colors from red, purple, yellow, blue, and green and it all trails down like a road. Just think of it like you were playing the board game ‘Candyland.’ Once you head to the ring, you can see that the seats are replaced by different color gumdrops. A pink one for Candice Blair and a red and green one for her guests. There are different balloons tied in groups of three in each corner of the ring. The entire ring mat is covered in pink cotton candy. There are a bunch of colorful and sugary cupcakes around each corner of the ring as well as lollypops and hard candies.)
(Also, by popular demand, Candice Blair has brought back the beautiful chocolate fountain that the fans were raving about on social media. The marble part of the fountain is decked out with various colors of mini jawbreakers. Hanging above the ring in the traditional ‘Candyland’ font, is ‘Getting Candid w/ Candice Blair!’ ‘Diva’ by Beyonce is blasting in the background as Candice gets her striped candy cane microphone as she looks at the virtual crowd around her. Candice is rocking a candy designed dress that’s almost similar to the one that Katy Perry won in her ‘California Gurls’ music video back in 2010. )
Candice Blair: Ladies and gentlemen… welcome to the must-see talk show on Voltage and EAW alone! Welcome to another installment of ‘Getting Candid with Candice Blair!’ I am your wonderful and beautiful host, ‘The Hot Commodity,’ Candice Blair! I am so thrilled that they asked me to bring this show back because I thought it deserved another shot since I didn’t ruin the show last time. That’s more of those bitter bozos, who I was dealing with leading up to Bloodsport, but that’s in the past. We have brought back the show because what another wonderful way to get all of you to anticipate this match than by inviting them to talk out their differences? No, I am not talking about my issues with biscuit butt because I’ll deal with her on a different time. I am talking about the issues between my sister, one of the greatest athletes that this company has ever seen and…Shane Gates. Honestly, I just wanted to know the tea because I can be such a chismosa at times. So without further ado, let me introduce you to one of the competitors in the ‘Graveyard Match’ at Wicked Games! My FAVORITE sister, my inspiration, and future World Champion…MS. EXTREME!!!!!!
(‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day plays through the World 1 Theatre as the virtual crowd is heard giving a positive reaction as Ms. Extreme comes out in her trademark leather jacket and t-shirt that you can find on EAWShop.com. Ms. Extreme walks down the ramp with a bit of swagger in her step as Candice Blair smiles at her sister approaching her with an embrace. She gestures for Ms. Extreme to take a seat on the red gumdrop as ‘Gangsta’ dies down.)
Candice Blair: Omg, Camille! I am so glad that you can be part of my show!
(Ms. Extreme looks around the ring at the entire candy set up, not really sure about how to feel about all of that. It seems a little too girlie for her. It’s more of Candice’s shtick rather than her’s, but she is going to be a supportive older sister. Candice hands Ms. Extreme a candy cane covered microphone as well.)
Ms. Extreme: Glad to be here. Is all of this editable?
(Ms. Extreme rips a tiny piece of the gumdrop chair that she is sitting on and puts a piece of it in her mouth. Candice Blair looks at Ms. Extreme quite nervously because it’s unclear to her if any of the set is editable.)
Ms. Extreme: Cherry flavor. :notbad:
Candice Blair: :blessed: !!!!!!
(Ms. Extreme turns her attention to the rope, where she sees that the ropes have been replaced by strawberry Twizzlers.)
Ms. Extreme: Are the ropes strawberry licorice? :oh:
(Ms. Extreme walks towards the corner, trying to get a closer look at the licorice ropes.)
Candice Blair: I believe they are, but I am going to need to eat you to stop eating the set. I’ve barely introduced my next guest. :whoa:
(It seems like Ms. Extreme is no longer focused on the ropes, but manages to get a handful of Skittles from a bowl at the corner.)
Ms. Extreme: (with the mouthful of Skittles) Okay, bring the dumb motherfucker out here…
Candice Blair: Introducing next… it’s the man that I am going to kick the ass off before Camille kicks the ass off at Wicked Games! The man who’s had enough with being on the shitty end of the EAW totem pole…SHANE GATES!!!!!!
(‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence blasts through the speakers as Shane Gates walks out from the back. He has a death glare directly at Ms. Extreme, who seems to find her way back to her seat. Shane walks down the ramp and steps inside the ring. Candice Blair gestures for Shane to sit in the green gumdrop, but Shane kicks the gumdrop to the side before glaring at Ms. Extreme, towering the redhead, even if she decides to stand up. Shane’s entrance music dies down as Ms. Extreme gets to her feet. The two of them are glaring at each other as Candice is looking at the confrontation very uncomfortably.)
Candice Blair: Shane, welcome to my show. I would appreciate you not to ruin any of the set because so much time and effort went to get all of these pieces together. That calls for you too, Camille. Now, I’m going to stay in the background, so the two of you just speak your minds to each other.
(Shane Gates snatches the microphone from Candice Blair as he thinks about what he is going to be saying to Ms. Extreme.)
Shane Gates: I am going to establish something real quick, but I could care less about any of these morons have to think about my actions within the last two weeks. People seem to think that I made the biggest mistake of my entire career going after someone like Ms. Extreme.
Ms. Extreme: You fucked up. That’s for sure.
Candice Blair: It wasn’t the approach that you should have taken, but you do you, boo.
Shane Gates: If you think that I gave a fuck about anyone’s opinions, then you got another thing coming. I’m not afraid of you, Camille. In fact, the only person that anyone should be afraid of something is…you. Are you not aware of the power that I have over you? Last week on Voltage, did you see how simple it was for me to take you down? I could do it again if I wanted too and I wouldn’t break a fucking sweat as I did that, but I am deciding to keep my composure. I hope that you don’t manage to get on my bad side, Camille because we don’t need to start on your burial a week earlier than anticipated. No, Camille. I want you to enjoy the last bit of air that you have left in this world because at Wicked Games, I am going to make sure that you have none when you’re six feet deep.
Ms. Extreme: Aw, you think that I am going to be intimidated with any of the shit that spews out of your mouth, Shane? Nah, I hear all of these warnings. I hear what you need to say and I just want to laugh at your face.
Candice Blair: Not going to lie, same. But, you aren’t alone in that, Camille.
Ms. Extreme: Shane Gates has had enough? Shane Gates has had enough with being the talent that this company feeds to Elitists like myself? Aw, that’s adorable because what do you expect? What have you done to prove that you SHOULDN’T be in the position that you’ve found yourself these past couple of years? Nothing. You’ve done nothing, Shane. It takes more than just beating the shit on the hottest talent that Voltage has to offer and being like: ‘I’m so sick of people perceiving me as a throwaway talent.😫’ You can either step up and defeat those talents who dare to use you for your own gain. Or you can do what you’ve always done and that’s lose to them. You haven’t done jack shit to prove that things are going to be different this time around going into your match. If anything, you’re going to be ANOTHER example of what happens when people try to make a name for themselves at the expense of Ms. Extreme and I am going to do what I do best and that’s bury losers like you and prove that you’re no match for me.
Candice Blair: Ooooh, are you REALLY going to take that, Shane? I wouldn’t.
Shane Gates: I bet if I was an Ava, I probably would have gotten the success that you’ve gotten. This company has done a great job of trying to keep someone like myself down. It’s because they’re afraid of me. It’s because they know whatever comes out of my mouth is nothing, but the truth. This company has tried to keep me down as much as possible, but I’m not going to let them do that anymore. Oh no, it’s about time that I did something about it. If it means taking down someone with an influential last name in this company, I am going to do that. I’m not afraid of any motherfucker on this brand and that means you, Camille. You can stand up and put on this false bravado of yourself, but I can see it a mile away. You can’t fool me, Camille. It doesn’t matter if you puff up your chest in confidence, hyping yourself to be god’s greatest gift to the Voltage brand, but people will eventually see that you’re nothing, but full of crap. At Wicked Games, I will expose you for being the fraud you are. I will be getting the biggest victory of my entire career at the expense of you. It doesn’t matter if you pretend that it’s not going to bug you when it happens, but it’s going to bug you and I am going to love every second of that.
Ms. Extreme: It must fucking suck to be Shane Gates. I didn’t think it was possible for you to go lower on the card that you’ve experienced these past couple of years. At Wicked Games, I am going to prove to you that the card truly gets lower for you. I know, I should accept that there’s always going to be motherfuckers like you who think that they can get that one victory to raise their stock on Voltage, but I am here to bring you back to reality, Shane. No one like you is ever going to get a victory over me.
(Shane Gates adjusts to Ms. Extreme’s words. He lets her words sit on his mind for the time being. He has a slight chuckle escape his lips before thinking of some sort of response.)
Shane Gates: If I don’t get a victory over you, I’ll end your career like Mr. DEDEDE ended your whore sister’s career at Grand Rampage earlier this year —
James Peters: It seems like Ms. Extreme is not going to let Shane Gates end that sentence as she delivers a wicked forearm to Shane! And like a rabid animal, Ms. Extreme continues to throw some punches, trying to get Shane to his knees, but Shane manages to shove Ms. Extreme to the corner!
(Thanks to the strength of Shane Gates, Ms. Extreme crashes onto the corner with a group of cupcakes on a tray. ‘The Red Queen’ is completely covered in different colors of icing, but she doesn’t care. She just wants to get her hands on Shane.)
Persephone: Camille falls into the cupcakes! What a loser! 😂😂😂
Candice Blair: WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT RUINING MY SET?!?!?!?
Rich Russillo: It seems like it doesn’t matter that Camille is a mess! She just wants to beat the shit out of Shane Gates! Shane is up to his feet as he manages to get a running Camille and connects with a spinebuster on the green gumdrop! Shane gets Camille by her hair and it seems like he’s going to connect with his finisher! Shane calls this ‘The Reckoning’ — the iron claw chokeslam onto the chocolate fountain!
(Shane Gates goes to connect with The Reckoning on Ms. Extreme on the chocolate fountain, but Candice Blair gets in the way.)
Candice Blair: NOT ON MY CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN! 🤬🤬🤬
(Shane Gates throws Ms. Extreme to the side, now shifting his attention to Candice Blair, who may or may not be regretting it at the moment. Candice tries to back away, but she’s always leaning towards the chocolate fountain.)
Persephone: CAMILLE TAKES SHANE GATES DOWN WITH THE METAL TRAY THAT THE CUPCAKES CAME FROM! THE BIGGER MAN IS TAKEN DOWN TO HIS KNEES! CAMILLE SLAMS THE TRAY TO THE BACK OF SHANE’S SKULL AS IT SEEMS LIKE CAMILLE HAS LEVELED SHANE DOWN TO HER LEVEL!
Rich Russillo: You can see the blood beginning to pour out of Shane Gates’ forehead as Ms. Extreme manages to get the bowl of Hershey kisses from the other corner and pour it on Shane!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme slams the bowl on Shane Gates’ head, shattering the bowl in the process and knocking him down to his back! Camille goes for that top rope! It seems like she’s going to hit the move that she always seems to go with during these times! She is looking at Shane as —
Rich Russillo: A BLIND FURY — THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO SHANE GATES!!!!!
Persephone: Shane Gates rolls himself into the ring as he seems to be clutching onto his ribs! I hope that doesn’t play a factor going into his match later tonight, but Ms. Extreme is glaring at him as he makes his way up the ramp!
(The ring is only left with Ms. Extreme and an angry Candice Blair, who is more than pissed off that her set is completely ruined. Ms. Extreme is focused on Shane Gates and is oblivious to Candice’s facial expression at the moment.)
Candice Blair: (off-mic) You had one job, Camille! ONE job! 😡 You said that you weren’t going to mess up the set! I fucking hate you so much right now.
(Ms. Extreme rolls her eyes, knowing that Candice Blair is being a little dramatic at the moment. It’s Candice, so her being dramatic is a given. Ms. Extreme flicks a Hershey kiss at who seems a little stunned and fails to catch it as she manages to fall back into the chocolate fountain. Ms. Extreme exits the ring as ‘Gangsta’ plays again, leaving Candice to look at her destroyed set. Candice is clearly upset as has chocolate covered all over for her, almost throwing a tantrum.)
Persephone: I don’t know about you guys, but that was kind of fun to see.
James Peters: I don’t think that this was the interview that Candice Blair had in mind, but she needs to brush it off. She’s got a match to focus on later in the night.
Rich Russillo: As for Ms. Extreme and Shane Gates, I’m looking forward to seeing this ‘Graveyard Match’ from them at Wicked Games. One of them is going to get buried alive and I can’t wait to see how everything unfolds next Saturday!
(Voltage fades to the backstage area. Sofia Clarke is standing by, ready to do her first interview of the night. She is dressed in a cute, red mini-dress from Fashion Nova and basic black pumps. A smile crosses her perfectly made up face and after a moment, Sofia begins to speak.)
Sofia Clarke: Wicked Games is just six days away and one of the most highly anticipated matches on the card is the match for the National Elite Championship. The champion, Sienna Jade, will defend her belt against Myles, and a lot of people are speculating that a new champion could end up being crowned.
???: :whoa: Are you stupid?
(The camera shot widens to show who is standing next to Sofia and it’s the champion herself, Sienna Jade. Sienna is dressed in her ring gear, with the National Elite Championship across her shoulder, and she does not look very happy at Sofia speculating that she might potentially lose her title next weekend. She’s also not alone. With the Grand Prix quarterfinal match featuring The Maidens of Malpractice against The Jaded Hearts coming up next, Kassidy Heart is standing next to Sienna. Sienna looks at Kassidy and makes a face, before turning back around to address Sofia.)
Sienna Jade: The only people speculating that I could lose my baby to Myles are the gross neckbeards who live in their parents’ basements. No respectable person wants to see Myles walk out of Wicked Games with a championship around his waist because what does that accomplish for EAW? It does nothing but give someone who claims to despise championships and everything they stand for the one thing they don’t want. Do you think Myles is going to hold this belt high above his head with pride in his eyes? No. Absolutely not. Myles is going to cast this championship to the side and treat it like garbage. He’s not going to put his health and wellbeing on the line every single week to defend this belt with honor. He’s not going to care about this belt at all. The National Elite Championship will be reduced to nothing more than a glorified trophy.
Sofia Clarke: Is a championship belt not considered a trophy of sorts?
Kassidy Heart: Oh brother.
Sienna Jade: Seriously? Did your run-in with Kasey Kaos last week fuck your head up that much that you can’t even differentiate between a trophy and a championship belt?? A trophy is something you sit on your mantle and dust every now and th-
Kassidy Heart: Actually I dust and wipe down everything in Ryan’s trophy room at least three times a week including the actual trophies.
Sienna Jade: You are such a perfect wife. I can’t even. Do you really think Myles is going to do that, though?
Kassidy Heart: Absolutely not. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t even know what a dust cloth is.
Sienna Jade: Exactly, and who wants to see the National Elite Championship thrown in some corner of Myles’ trailer? That will NEVER be the fate of my championship, ever. The sooner Myles understands that, the better off it’s going to be for him. This belt deserves to be around the waist of someone who will appreciate it, care about it, and wear it with pride. Winning this championship back at Pain for Pride meant more to me than I could possibly describe. So much blood, sweat, and tears went into winning this, not to mention everything I nearly lost in my pursuit of this belt. There is no way I’m letting it fall into the hands of someone like Myles.
(Sienna and Kassidy squeeze one another’s hands, just another little sign that there is no more animosity between them. Everything has been put behind them for good, and they’re back to where they were before all the mess from last season got started.)
Sienna Jade: Need further proof that Myles doesn’t deserve my belt? Myles was offered a chance to compete for the right to face SOSA Henderson at Wicked Games. He turned down an opportunity to compete for the EAW World Championship because he said himself he just wants to have great matches and hurt his opponents. It was Minerva who whispered in his ear to come after me and take the National Elite Championship because she still has PTSD over her time on Empire. I honestly can’t fathom why she would send Myles to try and do the job, unless she’s too much of a pussy to take me on herself. I mean the bitch can’t keep my name out of her bitter mouth, so I’m not sure why she hasn’t tried to come at me herself. After I dog walk Myles at Wicked Games and retain my baby, maybe Minerva will suck it up and come at me herself.
Kassidy Heart: Don’t hold your breath. Minerva is all I wAnT tO bE a BiG tHrEe WoRlD cHaMpIoN, like her being Universal Women’s Champion was ever that big of a deal when you consider Raven Roberts and Kasey Kaos were basically her only opponents, and even that was a struggle at times and ended in controversial fashion.
Sienna Jade: Fuck Minerva, and fuck Myles too. Their dreams of being double champions here in EAW are never going to pan out. Minerva’s stuck in some bum ass match against Terry Chambers and Myles isn’t beating me. As far as the Grand Prix goes, they’re never going to get past Shea Butter Babies because Minerva can’t beat Viz and she damn sure can’t beat Serena.
(Kassidy flips her hair off her shoulder as a smug smile crosses her face.)
Kassidy Heart: Can’t relate.
(Sienna grins and turns her attention back towards Sofia Clarke.)
Sienna Jade: Do you have anything else to ask me, bitch?
Sofia Clarke: Uhhh, do you have any final words for Myles?
Sienna Jade: Final words for Myles?? Hmmm.
(A serious look crosses Sienna Jade’s pretty face as she stares directly into the camera.)
Sienna Jade: I don’t know what your end game is, Myles, but I’m not sure it even matters at this point because I know mine. For me, Wicked Games ends with me retaining the National Elite Championship. You came out a couple of weeks ago, took some cheap shots, and gave the world false hope that you were going to be the one who took Sienna Jade’s championship away. You got people whispering that my reign is in jeopardy, and for whatever reason, people look at you in a different light than they do my previous challengers. Constance Blevins, Adam Lucas, and Shane Gates all came out guns blazing, declaring victory and that they were going to be the ones who knocked me down from my pedestal. They failed because who are any of them compared to Sienna Jade? They’re nothing, and that’s exactly how I view you at the moment. You haven’t given me any reason to truly be threatened by you. I destroyed you to end Voltage last week after you cost me a win against Ahren Fournier, and I hope you know there’s more where that came from. The second you bought into Minerva’s bullshit and planted me into the ground backstage, is when you sealed your own fate. You’re never getting this championship from me. You’ll have to pry this championship from my cold, dead hands Myles. That’s the only way you will ever be able to take something from me.
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for your time, and good luck to both of you against The Maidens.
(Sienna and Kassidy roll their eyes at Sofia, knowing that they don’t need luck. They believe in their hearts no one can touch them in this Grand Prix tournament. They walk off, hand-in-hand, and disappear around the corner.)
(Sofia jumps, clearly startled over the sound of Minerva’s voice. Minerva smiles prettily at Sofia and twirls a strand of the reporter’s hair around her finger. Myles is with his tag team partner, and Minerva turns her cold, blue eyes towards ‘The Manifest.’)
Minerva: You’re not going to let her get away with those words, are you?
(Minerva is practically purring, clearly thrilled over the possibility of watching her little kewtie Myles rip Sienna Jade to pieces during Wicked Games. Myles scoffs, almost amused at Sienna’s threats. It’s clear he doesn’t take the National Elite Champion seriously at all.)
Myles: If Sienna wishes to be marked for death, then so be it. Taking the National Elite Championship out of her quote ‘cold, dead hands’ is something I have no problem doing, and quite frankly, it makes this match a hell of a lot more interesting.
Sofia Clarke: I take it you aren’t bothered by the champion’s words, Myles?
Myles: I’m not bothered by anything, Sofia, least of all Sienna Jade. Taking the National Elite Championship from her is going to be fun and after I beat her for it, I may just leave it laying inside the ring. She’s right about one thing. That belt doesn’t serve any purpose to me. I just want it off of her because she’s the representation of everything I despise about this sport. She’s consumed with lust and greed, and cares nothing about the art of professional wrestling. She’ll learn a valuable lesson soon enough but in the meantime, I think I’m going to go do a little scouting.
(Minerva raises a perfectly arched eyebrow at Myles and a smile crosses her blood red lips.)
Minerva: An up close and personal look at the competition?
(Myles can’t help but grin.)
Myles: It seemed to go well last week.
(Minerva presses a little kiss across Myles’ lips and sends him on his way. She watches him go, enjoying the view, and only snaps out of her little trance when Sofia clears her throat. A look of annoyance crosses Minerva’s face and she spins on her heels and heads off, leaving Sofia without anymore sound bites.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial for Xander Payne’s Hood-rat repellent. Very effective against all types of rodents, get yours soon.)
(As Voltage fades back to the ring, ‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi begins to play. The virtual crowd boos as Myles makes his way out to the stage, but he doesn’t seem to care as usual as he walks around the ring and heads over towards the commentary area. He sits in the empty chair already set for him as Bella Braxton begins to speak.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: … AND IT IS A SECOND ROUND MATCH IN THE GRAND PRIX TOURNAMENT!!!!
James Peters: Myles! Nice to see you joining us! I didn’t expect to see you here for a match like this.
Myles: I’m here for one reason and one reason only. I’m here to see what I should be expecting come Wicked Games. That’s it.
(‘We Will Rock You’ by Artist Taylor Momsen, Maria Brink & Lizzie Hale hits, and the virtual crowd continues booing as Dr. Bethany Blue and Alexis Chambers make their way out to the stage. Before long they begin walking down the ramp, clearly ready for their second round match in the Grand Prix. Both Elitists look focused as this is not their only big opportunity in the next few weeks, as both of them are in Championship matches at Reasonable Doubt. One of Dr. Bethany Blue’s opponents, just so happens to be facing her tonight.)
Bella Braxton: On their way to the ring…. At a combined weight of 242 pounds…. ALEXIS CHAMBERS AND DR. BETHANY BLUE, THE MAIIIIDDEEENNNSS OF MAALLLPRACCTIIIICCEE!!!!
James Peters: And here they are! Alexis Chambers and Dr. Bethany Blue! Well we know just how talented these two are. Not only did they secure the win for Ryan Wilson at Territorial Invasion, but the fact that they’re even in round two of the Grand Prix says enough. Both of these women have Championship matches at Reasonable Doubt, and what better way to show us what they’re made of than to advance in the Grand Prix tonight?
Rich Russillo: That’s true. Alexis Chambers is facing Consuela Rose Ava for the Interwire Championship, meanwhile Dr. Bethany Blue is part of the Answers World Championship fatal four way. They’re both extremely talented women that can possibly score an upset win here tonight.
Persephone: I don’t even like the Jaded Hearts and I know you’re lying out of your teeth.
Myles: Can we just move on to the other two already?
(As Alexis Chambers stays in the ring, ‘Kings and Queens’ by Ava Max begins to play, causing the virtual crowd to begin booing once again. Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart soon begin making their way out to the stage, with the National Elite Championship on Sienna’s shoulder. Sienna keeps her eyes on Myles, meanwhile Kassidy and Dr. Bethany Blue don’t lose eye contact. Soon enough Kassidy and Sienna reach the ring, and they take their time entering it as they share some words with each other. Like the Maidens of Malpractice they two have Championship matches coming up, and they seem more than ready for it.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents…. THE TEAM OF KASSIDY HEART AND NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION SIENNA JADE, THE JAAAAAAADDEEDDD HEEEAAAAARRRRTTTTSSSSS!!!!!
James Peters: Well Myles, you asked for them and here they are! Honestly, what do we even say about the Jaded Hearts. Correction, what do we say about the Jaded Hearts that hasn’t already been said countless times? They’re one of, if not the greatest tag team of all time and I don’t think that’s a matter of opinion. Their accomplishments both as a team and on their own is just insane. What about you Myles? Sienna is an extremely talented and accomplished competitor, what do you have to say?
Myles: I say that I’m going to cut her down to size at Wicked Games. It might mean a lot to Alexis Chambers or Dr. Bethany Blue, but I don’t care what Sienna’s accomplished just like she doesn’t care, or straight up doesn’t know anything I’ve done before challenging her. All that matters is what’s going to happen when we face, and that’s me defeating her.
Rich Russillo: Well, there you have it. If it isn’t already clear, Sienna Jade and Myles will be facing each other at Wicked Games for the National Elite Championship, meanwhile Kassidy Heart is ALSO part of that Answers World Championship fatal four way match! A lot is on the line here! Both a spot in the Grand Prix, and tons of momentum!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And here we go! Grand Prix round two match, Maidens of Malpractice versus the Jaded Hearts! Alexis Chambers and Sienna Jade are starting off this match, and the two quickly lock up! Sienna’s able to get Alexis in a headlock, and now the two struggle for control here as Alexis pushes Sienna into the ropes! Alexis slides under Sienna as Sienna bounces off the opposite pair, AND ALEXIS GOES FOR A DROPKICK BUT SIENNA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Sienna now quickly applying a grounded rear chinlock on Alexis!
Rich Russillo: Alexis is struggling a bit here, but she’s quickly able to get back to her feet before elbowing Sienna in the midsection! Now it’s Alexis that has the headlock in on Sienna, but Sienna manages to lift Alexis up for a back suplex- just for Alexis to flip back down on her feet! Alexis could potentially become Interwire Champion very soon, so I’m sure she doesn’t want to miss the opportunity to defeat Voltage’s National Elite Champion! ALEXIS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KIC- NO! Sienna managed to duck that and now she hits Alexis with an enzuigiri! Sienna on the other hand, I’m sure she’s gonna want to show out with you watching, Myles.
Myles: Yeah, I’m sure she will. This is her one opportunity to try and impress me before Wicked Games, and because she hasn’t been all too impressive her entire career prior to this she’s going to try even harder than usual.
Persephone: Wait… This is Sienna when she’s trying? Yikes. Anyways, Alexis Chambers was just on spaghetti legs so Sienna tried to irish whip her to the Jaded Hearts corner, but Alexis turned it around before pulling Sienna into a back elbow. You know, the generic boring offense you see in every match.
James Peters: LIGHTS OUT- NO! SIENNA AVOIDS THE SUPERKICK BEFORE ROLLING ALEXIS UP! Sienna lets go of the school girl pin though, and as soon as Alexis gets back to her feet Sienna kicks her in the midsection before sending her into the ropes! HURRICANRANA BY ALEXIS! Sienna now stumbling into the Maidens of Malpractice’s corner after being caught off guard with that hurricanrana, and Alexis charges in with a running forearm smash before making the tag! Dr. Bethany Blue enters the ring, and Alexis sends Sienna right into Bethany- WHO DELIVERS A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! The cover now by Bethany!
Rich Russillo: Sienna Jade kicks out! The Doctor now with a grounded headlock on Sienna, AND THERE’S A NASTY ELBOW TO SIENNA’S FACE! Dr. Bethany Blue with repeated elbows towards Sienna, and she’s looking right at Sienna’s partner, Kassidy Heart! Dr. Bethany Blue and Kassidy Heart are two of the Elitists competing in that Answers World Championship match at Reasonable Doubt, and it looks like Dr. Blue may be trying to send a message to Kassidy! Sienna’s able to get back to a knee though, AND SIENNA PUSHES DR. BLUE TOWARDS KASSIDY’S CORNER, ALLOWING KASSIDY TO HIT HER WITH A FOREARM! Dr. Blue falling right back towards Sienna Jade, WHO DROPS HER WITH A SNAP DDT!
Persephone: How is that even allowed? That’s cheating, is it not?
James Peters: I don’t think the referee caught it. Dr. Bethany Blue is much taller than Kassidy Heart after all, so that must have allowed Kassidy to not be seen punching her. Nonetheless, Sienna is trying to drag Bethany towards the Jaded Hearts corner, but Dr. Blue is pulling Sienna away to stop her from making the tag! Sienna now realizing that Dr. Blue still has enough fight left in her to keep going- AND SO SHE STOMPS AT DR. BLUE’s MIDSECTION!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue grabbing onto the ropes to try and get back to her feet, and now Sienna Jade chokes her on the ropes until the referee reaches a count of four! Sienna backing up before the referee could get involved, BUT NOW SHE CHARGES IN- RIGHT INTO A HUGE BOOT FROM BETHANY! Bethany now charging in, and she sends Sienna into the ropes with an irish whip, BUT KASSIDY JUST TAGGED HERSELF IN! SIENNA WITH A DROPKICK TO DR. BLUE’S LEG, AND NOW KASSIDY GETS INTO THE RING BEFORE DROPPING DR. BLUE WITH A HUGE RUNNING LARIAT!
Persephone: Oh brother, here comes Kassidy 🙄. I guess her and the roleplay doctor suddenly hate each other because they’re gonna be in a title match or whatever, I don’t really care. Anyways Dr. Bethany Blue got back to her feet pretty quickly, and both her and Kassidy are on opposite sides of the ring. Aren’t you supposed to be excited or something by now Myles? Why are you even here?
Myles: I’m not here for Kassidy Heart or Dr. Bethany Blue. This doesn’t really interest me.
James Peters: AND NOW BOTH WOMEN CHARGE TOWARDS EACH OTHER! BOTH DR. BLUE AND KASSIDY HEART CHARGE AT EACH OTHER, AND THERE THEY GO! BOTH WOMEN BEGIN PUNCHING AWAY AT EACH OTHER, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE KASSIDY’S GOT THE UPPER HAND AS SHE DELIVERS A HUGE KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! KASSIDY NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND SHE DELIVERS A HUGE BICYCLE KICK TO THE SIDE OF BETHANY’S HEAD! Dr. Bethany Blue is in a bit of trouble here as she stumbles towards the corner, and I don’t think that’s where she wants to be right now, AS KASSIDY CHARGES IN AND DELIVERS AN ELBOW TO DR. BLUE’S JAW!
Rich Russillo: Kassidy isn’t stopping there though! Kassidy’s stomping away at Dr. Bethany Blue as Bethany’s stuck in the corner! Kassidy now is just pushing her boot across Bethany’s face, this is brutal offense from Kassidy! One of these two women could very well be the next Answers World Champion, but right now this has been all Kassidy! Kassidy now backing up into the corner next to the one she and Bethany are in, AND NOW SHE CHARGES IN, RUNNING KNEE BY KASSI- NO! DR. BETHANY BLUE MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, AVOIDING THE RUNNING KNEE!
James Peters: DR. BETHANY BLUE NOW WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF KASSIDY, AND NOW DR. BLUE PULLS KASSIDY AWAY FROM THE ROPES BEFORE DELIVERING A TIGER SUPLEX! BETHANY NOW WITH THE PIN!
James Peters: KASSIDY HEART KICKS OUT, AND DR. BETHANY BLUE QUICKLY MAKES THE TAG! Alexis now entering the ring as Dr. Bethany Blue irish whips Kassidy into the corner, and I think I know what they’re going for! Bethany now getting on all fours, AND ALEXIS CHARGES IN! MOTOR CITY SEDA- WAIT NO! JUST AS ALEXIS STEPPED ON BETHANY KASSIDY RUSHED OUT OF THE CORNER AND PUNT KICKED BETHANY IN THE MIDSECTION, CAUSING ALEXIS TO TUMBLE AS WELL!
Rich Russillo: Alexis is quickly back to her feet, BUT KASSIDY SENDS HER OUT OF THE RING WITH A CLOTHESLINE OVER THE TOP ROPE! WAIT, NO! ALEXIS MANAGES TO STAY ON THE APRON! Alexis quickly getting back up once again, and Kassidy tries to capitalize but Alexis hits her with a forearm! Alexis now to the top rope, AND SHE TAKES KASSIDY DOWN WITH A CROSSBODY! ALEXIS BACK TO HER FEET, AND KASSIDY SLOWLY GETS UP AS WELL- BUT SHE QUICKLY MAKES THE TAG TO SIENNA JADE!
Myles: About time.
James Peters: Alexis is forced to back off thanks to Sienna Jade being tagged in- BUT BEFORE LONG THE TWO LOCK UP ONCE AGAIN! This time Alexis is trying to power Sienna towards the ropes, BUT SIENNA’S ABLE TO DELIVER A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! Sienna now grabbing Alexis, AND SHE GOES FOR THE RDG BUT ALEXIS WIGGLES OUT OF IT! LIGHTS OUT!!! ALEXIS CONNECTS WITH THE SUPERKICK, BUT SIENNA JUST FELL UNDER THE MIDDLE ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING! ALEXIS COULD TAKE THE COUNT OUT WIN, BUT THAT’S NOT HOW THE MAIDENS OF MALPRACTICE WANT TO GET THINGS DONE!
Persephone: Alexis for some reason thought it’d be a smart idea to go outside and go after Sienna. She should just take the count out win and get this over with but she’s a moron. After all wasn’t she in that stupid mud wrestling match this year? That’s my bad, I don’t know why I expected her to do the sensible thing here. Anyways she just grabbed Sienna and slammed her face onto our table, I kind of wish they weren’t this close. We’re still in a pandemic after all.
James Peters: Alexis is making it a point to continue doing this right in front of Myles! Sienna’s supposed to defend her National Elite Championship against this man in a weeks time, and this isn’t the greatest look for her just a week before the show! Alexis now, SENDING SIENNA INTO THE RINGPO- NO! SIENNA TURNS IT AROUND AND CAUSES ALEXIS TO GO INTO THE POST! SIENNA NOW DRAGGING ALEXIS TOWARDS THE CORNER OF THE STEEL STEPS- Wait… Oh no, I think I know exactly what Sienna’s about to go for here! This wouldn’t cause a disqualification, after all she’s not actually using the steps as a weapon! Instead, she’s gonna try and take Alexis’ eye out!
Rich Russillo: ALEXIS IS HOLDING ONTO THE STEPS AND TRYING TO PUSH HERSELF AWAY FROM IT AS HARD AS SHE CAN! THIS COULD BE VERY BAD, AND IF KASSIDY OR DR. BETHANY BLUE GET INVOLVED IT COULD CAUSE A DISQUALIFICATION AS NEITHER OF THEM ARE LEGAL! SIENNA JADE TOOK OUT SERENA BENNETT AND CONSTANCE BLEVINS WITH VICIOUS ATTACKS TO THE EYE, IS SHE GOING TO ADD ALEXIS CHAMBERS TO THE COLLECTION!? ALEXIS IS GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE STEPS, SHE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING FAST!
Myles: So this what I should be expecting at Wicked Games, huh? This is the Sienna Jade people are so afraid of. Interesting.
Persephone: Personally, I’m all in for Sienna taking out that annoying weirdo. Not like we’d be losing anything of value, it’s just Terry Chambers’ sister who’s somehow way worse than he is. I didn’t think it could get any worse than him but here we are.
James Peters: ALEXIS GRABS SIENNA’S ARM AND PULLS HER DOWN FACE FIRST ONTO THE STEPS! Sienna’s nose might have been busted after that, that was a nasty fall into the steps! Alexis rolling Sienna back into the ring, and yup! Just look at the blood dripping down Sienna’s nose!! Alexis doesn’t seem to care though, she’s going right up to the top rope! Sienna Jade’s on her stomach though, although that might just make this much worse for her! HEART STOPPER ONTO SIENNA JADE’S BACK!!! THE MOONSAULT CONNECTS AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER BY ALEXIS, TO ADVANCE IN THE GRAND PRIX!
Rich Russillo: SIENNA JADE GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Alexis quickly tags Dr. Bethany Blue in though, and Alexis tosses Sienna Jade over to her! Dr. Blue has Sienna Jade in a bearhug, AND NOW ALEXIS RUNS THE ROPES! THE CORONARY!!! THE CORONARY CONNECTS ON SIENNA JADE, BUT ONCE AGAIN IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOTTEN LUCKY AS SHE ROLLS CLOSE TO THE ROPES! DR. BLUE QUICKLY GETS TO THE COVER ANYWAY, AND SHE PULLS SIENNA AS FAR AWAY AS SHE CAN!
James Peters: HER FINGERTIPS!! SIENNA MANAGED TO GET HER FINGERTIPS ON THE BOTTOM ROPE STILL, MEANING THE JADED HEARTS ARE STILL IN THIS MATCH! Myles, there’s no way you’re not impressed by this! Are you sure you’re not second guessing yourself or anything!?
Myles: Why would I second guess myself? I know who I’m facing. I agreed to watching this match to see how she performs, but nothing she does tonight will worry me.
James Peters: WELL, THIS MATCH MAY BE COMING TO AN END ANYWAY! DR. BETHANY BLUE IS TRYING TO LOCK IN THE DISLOCATION! SHE NEARLY HAS THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR LOCKED IN, BUT SIENNA’S FIGHTING OUT OF IT! SIENNA IS ON ALL FOURS SO SHE CAN’T GET IT FULLY LOCKED IN, AND NOW SHE HITS BETHANY WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF HER HEAD BEFORE QUICKLY PULLING HER UP! WITCHES HAMMER!!! THE WITCHES HAMMER CONNECTS, AND NOW IT’S SIENNA DROPPING DOWN FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: THAT WAS SO CLOSE, BUT DR. BETHANY BLUE KICKS OUT! Sienna Jade has to be exhausted after everything she just endured, and now she’s just punching away at Dr. Bethany Blue’s face! Punch after punch, and now as she gets back up she just begins stomping at her! This has become such a physical match up over the last few minutes, and now it looks like Sienna’s trying to make up for her bloody nose by punching Dr. Blue right in the same spot!
Persephone: Yep, there it is.. It’s blood but it’s not enough blood. Come on this is Voltage, why is nobody dead?
Rich Russillo: What about you Myles, is this the violence you were looking for?
Myles: I’ve seen better, much better.
James Peters: Well it’s not like they have many options Persephone, after all they can’t just use weapons and all that in a normal tag team match. Anyways Dr. Bethany Blue is a mess right now, and now Sienna goes and tags in Kassidy! Kassidy Heart is back in this match, but it doesn’t look like Sienna’s exiting the ring just yet! Instead she’s picked Dr. Bethany Blue up, AND KASSIDY RUNS THE ROPES- WAIT A SECOND! BETHANY WITH A BACK ELBOW TO SIENNA BEFORE SHE COULD CONNECT WITH THE LEG SWEEP!
Rich Russillo: DR. BLUE NOW DUCKS THE SPINNING HEEL KICK FROM KASSIDY! TJD!!! THE TJD CONNECTS, AND THAT MIGHT BE IT! DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH THE COVER AFTER AVOIDING THAT TAG TEAM MOVE FROM THE JADED HEARTS, AND THIS MATCH MIGHT BE OVER RIGHT NOW, MAIDENS OF MALPRACTICE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT ROUND!
Rich Russillo: WHAT!? NO!! KASSIDY KICKS OUT!! KASSIDY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!
James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue can’t be too happy about that, AND NOW SHE JUST GRABS KASSIDY BY THE HEAD AND SLAMS IT BACK DOWN ON THE MAT! We all know Kassidy’s history with concussions, and I think Dr. Bethany Blue is trying to take Kassidy out once again! Dr. Blue slamming her head over and over- BUT KASSIDY’S ABLE TO GRAB DR. BLUE’S ARMS, AND THERE’S A HUGE RIGHT HAND BY THE FORMER NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! Kassidy’s trying to get back to her feet, BUT DR. BLUE IS ABLE TO RECOVER BEFORE HER AND SEND HER SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!
Persephone: Fake Doctor rolls Kassidy up now- but before the referee could even get in position Kassidy got out of it and she just hit Bethany with the Painfully Ever After. Bethany looks like she may be out of it completely, and now Kassidy for some reason is pulling her back up instead of going for the cover. Kassidy now with a german suplex, and of course she didn’t let go so I think we know where we’re going with this.
James Peters: THAT’S RIGHT! KASSIDY PICKS BETHANY UP, AND SHE GOES FOR A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX!! KASSIDY STILL ISN’T FINISHED YET THOUGH, BECAUSE SHE PICKS DR. BLUE BACK UP AND HITS A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX!! THE KASSPLODER PLEX CONNECTS, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER BY KASSIDY WHO MAY HAVE JUST PUT AWAY ONE OF HER REASONABLE DOUBT OPPONENTS!!!
James Peters: NO!!! NOT YET, DR. BETHANY BLUE IS NOT FINISHED YET!!! Kassidy doesn’t look too happy about that, and now she pulls Dr. Bethany Blue up to all fours- BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE KNEE TO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD!! This may not be over yet for the Maidens of Malpractice, but Kassidy is all over Bethany right now!
Rich Russillo: Kassidy picking Bethany up, AND SHE TRIES TO LIFT HER UP BUT BETHANY HITS A KNEE TO THE HEAD! Kassidy stumbling back now and Sienna tags herself in! Bethany charges towards the corner, BUT KASSIDY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS BETHANY JUST RAN RIGHT INTO SIENNA JADE’S FOOT, WHICH SHE HAD PUT UP BEHIND KASSIDY’S HEAD! What a smart move by Sienna, AND NOW SIENNA GOES FOR THE SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK! RAW SIENN- NO!! DR. BLUE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, BUT SIENNA ROLLS BACK UP TO HER FEET!
James Peters: BOTH ELITISTS CHARGE AT EACH OTHER, AND SIENNA DUCKS A CLOTHESLINE FROM DR. BLUE! SIENNA NOW WITH A FOREARM, AND SHE SENDS DR. BLUE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BEFORE CHARGING IN! RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BY SIENNA JADE, BUT LOOK AT THAT! ALEXIS CHAMBERS JUST SLAMMED HER SHOULDER INTO SIENNA’S MIDSECTION, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE TAGGED HERSELF IN AS WELL! ALEXIS GRABBING A HOLD OF SIENNA AND DR. BETHANY BLUE JOINS HER! THE CURE- HEY WAIT A SECOND! SIENNA PUSHED DR. BLUE OFF OF HER AND ROLLED ALEXIS UP!! SIENNA IS GONNA STEAL IT FOR THE JADED HEARTS!!
Persephone: Oh my GOD, when will this end already?? Nobody cares about this, I’m pretty sure everyone knows who’s gonna win!
Rich Russillo: I don’t know, this looks like it could really go either way right now! Alexis kicked out of that pin, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR THE FOH!!! SIENNA AVOIDS THE SHINING WIZARD BEFORE PULLING ALEXIS BACK UP TO HER FEET!! WITCHES HAMMER- HEY WAIT!! ANOTHER COUNTER!! ALEXIS DUCKED BEHIND SIENNA, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR HER OWN GERMAN SUPLEX- BUT SIENNA MANAGED TO LAND ON HER FEET BEFORE SHOVING ALEXIS INTO THE JADED HEARTS CORNER! TAG TO KASSIDY HEART!!
James Peters: SIENNA GETS ON ONE KNEE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND NOW KASSIDY DELIVERS A HUGE ELBOW TO ALEXIS BEFORE TURNING HER AROUND! KASSIDY WITH THE BULLDOG RIGHT ONTO SIENNA’S KNEE!! THAT’S THE MOVE THE JADED HEARTS HAVE USED TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO FINISH THEIR MATCHES, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT MIGHT BE IT! WAIT, WAIT NO!
Rich Russillo: DR. BETHANY BLUE GOT IN THE RING AMIDST ALL THE CHAOS, AND SHE TRIED TO HIT KASSIDY WITH THE TJD BUT KASSIDY DUCKED IT BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! SPEAR BY KASSIDY HEART!! KASSIDY NOW WITH THE PIN ON ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners… AND ADVANCING IN THE GRAND PRIX TOURNAMENT, KASSIDY HEART AND SIENNA JADE! THE JAAADDEEEDD HEEEAAAARRTTTSSS!!!!!
Myles: Guess that’s it then.
James Peters: Aren’t you impressed at all!? That was a fantastic match by four incredible competitors! That really could have gone any way, surely you have something to say, right!?
Myles: Yeah, I do have something to say. I came to watch Sienna’s performance tonight, and there it is. Tonight hasn’t changed my mind at all about her.
Rich Russillo: Well, Myles may not be impressed but I sure am! Both teams gave that match their all ahead of their upcoming Championship matches at Wicked Games and Reasonable Doubt respectively, and I’ve got to say the Jaded Hearts have not lost a step. They’re working as good as ever, and they may just be your next Grand Prix winners.
Persephone: Didn’t they win one already? Eh, wouldn’t be too surprised if they win again. Look at the competition, there’s basically no good teams in the entire tournament. If only Rex was in it…
James Peters: I thought you didn’t like Rex and Raven together?
Persephone: Did I say anything about Garbage and Ice? Rex McAllister could win this entire tournament and the Unified Tag Team Championships by himself.
James Peters: Alright… Anyways, congratulations Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade, for moving on in the Grand Prix tournament!
(‘Kings & Queens’ begins to play to mainly boos, as both Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade get back to their feet. The two hug in the center of the ring, and Sienna wipes the blood from her nose before being handed her National Elite Championship. As the two raise each other’s hands, Sienna makes sure to hold up her Championship while looking down at Myles, who doesn’t look impressed at all. Finally, Voltage fades out to a commercial break.)
(Commercial for Kassidy Heart’s new eyeliner, because Colourpop isn’t reliable enough.)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break to the backstage area as a pair of high heels are seen speed walking through the hallways of the World 1 Theatre. Hannah Marin is seen making her way through the backstage area with a purpose as she seems to be in a rush. She’s checking her phone to look at the time before going to another app and every so often looks up to see where she’s going as she has a concerned look on her face for obvious reasons seeing as she’s alone.
Hannah Marin: Where are they at…?
(Hannah continues to type quickly on her phone as she continues on her way throughout the area, seemingly not having a destination. Clearly looking for Parental Advisory as both Jesse Barlow and Korey Gaines should be somewhere getting ready for their match against Komatsu Ogawa and MITSUBACHI.)
Hannah Marin: They wouldn’t just ditch me like that-
(Before long Hannah bumps into something as it’s clear it’s a person as she drops her phone. She looks down at it drop to the floor with her face completely frozen as she takes a deep breath, just staring at it for a few moments not bothering to look at the cause as she crouches down to pick it up, trying her best to keep a calm face before snapping as she gets up.)
Hannah Marin: Who the fuck do you think you are-
(Before long she looks up to see who she bumped into as she’s met with a surprise. One half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Harper Lee, is seen looking at Hannah as before long her eyes widen as she begins to move backwards ever so slightly as Harper watches her do so with a smirk on her face.)
Harper Lee: I’m sorry, were you gonna say something?
Hannah Marin: N-no I swear… I was just passing by!
Harper Lee: Were you? It sounded a lot like you said “Who the… Do you think you are.” Did you not?
Hannah Marin: No no I was going to say… Who the fuck do you think you are to not introduce yourself!
Harper Lee: That sounds stupid.
Hannah Marin: IT MAKES SENSE!
Harper Lee: :usure:
Hannah Marin: :noah:
Harper Lee: :mjlol:
(Hannah’s eyes blink for a moment before she freezes. She closes her eyes for a moment taking a few deep breaths before opening them and walking up to her as she calms herself down for a moment and faces Harper as it’s less of a intimidated face and more of a serious look as she stares her down for a moment before beginning to speak up to her.)
Hannah Marin: You know what I’m not afraid of you, stupid bitch. You really think you’re all that? Fuck you-
Harper Lee: Boo.
(Harper fakes a punch as Hannah stumbles backwards and runs away as Harper looks on with a smirk as she does so, not bothering to retaliate back. The camera continues as Hannah runs through the halls of the backstage area before meeting the exit. She fumbles with the knob for a moment before opening it and running outside. She looks around for her car as she runs towards it as she finds it. Before…)
(She’s startled by a loud car horn as she falls backwards towards it. She looks to see the blinding lights of a car facing her as before long the driver’s window opens to show the other half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Sierra Bradford, poking her head out as she waves.)
Sierra Bradford: NEED A LIFT?!
(Hannah gives a scream as she quickly gets up and runs back towards the World 1 Theatre as she retreats back inside the backstage area. Before long the camera cuts to a little bit later as she’s seen crouched behind a production crate. She’s breathing heavily as she seemed to be running for a while as she knew very well that she couldn’t fend the both of them off by herself. She closes her eyes for a moment before shaking her head as she looks up.)
Harper Lee & Sierra Bradford: Hi.
(Hannah is startled as she gives a loud scream before scrambling away as she runs past them, again both members of The Realm don’t bother chasing after her as they look to each other and give a shrug as they walk her direction. Hannah finds herself looking at the door of the bathroom in the arena as she bursts through the door and into it. She slams the door as she backs herself up against it. Putting her hands on her knees as she arches forward and tries to catch her breath as she prevents the door from being opened. Hannah walks to the sink as she turns it on and runs the water as she splashes it across her face, trying to snap out of it.)
Hannah Marin: They won’t find me in here… fucking bat shit crazy chicks… snap out of it Hannah…
(Hannah shakes her head as she fixes and straightens her hair for a moment before looking up at the mirror as she nearly chokes.)
Hannah Marin: NONONONONONONO!
(Hannah looks to the mirror as she’s absolutely petrified. She looks up at it to see not the reflection of herself through it, but Harper Lee standing what seems to be inside the mirror in a darkened room on the other side with a smirk still staying on her face as she does so as Hannah turns and runs to the stalls, she quickly opens it before her eyes are frozen as she’s met with the face of Sierra Bradford coming out of the stall and looking at her as Hannah gives a loud shriek before retreating away once more. She opens the door and slams it shut as she kicks it a few times for good measure as she looks around for a moment before running to the locker room door across from the bathroom as she jitters with the knob for a moment before opening the door. She looks around but is stopped as…)
(A bucket of a red substance is poured down onto Hannah as she’s completely frozen as she seems to be near the verge of tears as she’s covered head to toe in the substance. She falls down to her knees as she tries to wipe away everything desperately as she’s near crying as before long the door pushes open to the locker room once more as The Realm are once again seen with smiles on their faces as they have the Unified Tag Team Championships around their shoulders.)
Sierra Bradford: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
Harper Lee: You’re a week too early Sierra.
Sierra Bradford: Well she gets the point.
(Harper gives a shrug as Sierra waves to Hannah as she’s still down on the floor crying into her hands as both members of The Realm make their leave out of the locker room.)
???: HEY WHAT THE FUCK?!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD! JESSE BARLOW ATTACKS SIERRA AS KOREY GAINES COMES IN AS WELL AND TAKES OUT HARPER! PARENTAL ADVISORY IS ATTACKING THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS AS IT’S CLEAR THEY’VE CAUGHT WIND OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING! BOTH OF THEM ARE BOMBARDING THEM WITH STRIKES AS THE REALM AS BEEN CAUGHT BY SURPRISE IN THIS IMPROMPTU ATTACK!
James Peters: PARENTAL ADVISORY GETTING THE BEST OF THEM AS JESSE IS SLAMMING PUNCHES DOWN ONTO SIERRA AS KOREY IS GRABBING HARPER BY HER HAIR AND SENDING KNEES TOWARDS HER! JESSE TOSSING SIERRA DOWN TO THE GROUND AS HE RUNS FORWARD AND LOOKS TO STOMP DOWN ON HER! BUT SIERRA ROLLS BACKWARDS AND UP TO HER FEET AS SHE GRABS HIM! AND SLAMS HIM BACKFIRST INTO THE WALL NEXT TO THEM!
Persephone: Ugh, how long is this going to go on for? I have a salad that I need to finish and everything dude.
Rich Russillo: MEANWHILE KOREY HAS SLAMMED HARPER AGAINST A WALL AS HE’S TRAPPING HER AND SENDING FOREARM SHOTS STRAIGHT TO HER HEAD LOOKING TO TAKE HER DOWN AND OUT OF THE EQUATION! BUT IT’S HARPER SENDS A KNEE TO THE GUT OF KOREY! HARPER TURNING KOREY AROUND AND TRADING PLACES AS SHE GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD, AND SLAMS HIM INTO THE WALL!
James Peters: SIERRA COMING OVER TO HELP HER TAG PARTNER AS BOTH HER AND HARPER GRAB KOREY AND RUN WITH THEM! AS THEY THROW KOREY INTO A PRODUCTION CRATE TAKING THEM DOWN! BUT IT’S JESSE RUNNING OVER TO TRY TO HELP HIS TAG PARTNER WITH HIS WEAKENED STATE AS BOTH SIERRA AND HARPER GRAB HIM AS KOREY GETS UP, AND THROW JESSE AT KOREY TAKING THEM BOTH DOWN!
(Both Sierra and Harper look down at Parental Advisory as they’re heavily breathing before looking at one another as they pick their Unified Tag Team Championships off the ground and around their shoulder once again as Sierra scoffs and Harper shakes her head as both of them leave the scene as Voltage fades away from backstage.)
(A few moments later, Voltage returns to ringside as we see Bella Braxton in the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a tag team match… and is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Middle Fingers’ by MISSIO hits the speakers as the virtual crowd has a split of cheers and boos. Korey Gaines walks onto the stage, holding up middle fingers, as he has a cocky grin on his face.)
James Peters: Here comes Korey Gaines, clearly happy with his position on the card, as he and his partner are set to face The Realm for their Unified Tag Team Championships, AND after racking up some wins! He’s on a hot streak right now, and it shows.
(‘Middle Fingers’ is suddenly replaced by ‘Player Haters’ Ball’ by Palisades, as Jesse Barlow cockily walks onto the stage, behind Korey. They stare at each other, before fist bumping and walking down the ramp together.)
James Peters: And here is his tag partner! Jesse Barlow has had multiple opportunities at championship gold in the past, but Wicked Games could be the time where he finally takes it home! He and Korey have shown great tag team chemistry, but we have to wonder. Can it beat The Realm?
Rich Russillo: Of course they can! The Realm didn’t earn those titles! They beat THE GRAND ATHLETES of all people. If they beat a genuinely good team, maybe they’d be good champions.
James Peters: :wow:
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… at a combined weight of 380 pounds… KOREY GAINES, JESSE BARLOW, PARENTAAAAAAAAAAAAAL ADVISORY!!!!
(Barlow and Gaines climb onto the apron, before entering the ring together. They raise their arms at the ropes, before fist bumping again, as they wait in their corner. Barlow’s theme fades out, until it’s replaced by ‘The Invisible Wall’ by GazettE. Komatsu Ogawa walks onto the stage, wearing a shirt containing his logo, along with a cap, featuring a smaller version of that same logo. He calmly walks down the ramp.)
James Peters: Komatsu Ogawa has also shown great chemistry with MITSUBACHI in the past, on the few instances where they have teamed up. And I don’t expect tonight to be any different! They have a huge match ahead of them, facing off against the number one contenders to the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships. This could do great things for them if they win.
Rich Russillo: Key word: IF. And they won’t. Not on Voltage, not on Dynasty, not tonight, not next week, not yesterday, never.
Persephone: They didn’t face yesterday.
Rich Russillo: Well….
Bella Braxton: And introducing one half of their opponents. First, weighing in at 251 pounds… KOMATSUUUUUUUUUUU OOOOOOOOOGAAAWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
(Ogawa slowly walks up the steps, then enters the ring. He waits in his corner, slowly removing his gear just to delay time, and annoy his opponents. ‘Black Honey’ by Thrice floods through the speakers, as white strobe lights flash on the stage. MITSUBACHI walks through the curtains, to a mass of boos.)
Rich Russillo: Can I just mention that these guys lost to the Grand Athletes? The guys The Realm beat, and the gals Parental Advisory WILL beat? They don’t stand a chance.
James Peters: Let’s say Ogawa and MITSU win though. What does that mean for Parental Advisory? Will that ruin their confidence and momentum heading into their title match?
Rich Russillo: Not gonna happen, so I guess we’ll never know.
Bella Braxton: And introducing his tag team partner… Weighing in at 187 pounds… MITSUUUUUUUBAAAAAAACHIIIIIIIIIIII!!!
(MITSUBACHI enters the ring, before staring down his opponents. He turns back to Ogawa, and simply nods, before Ogawa goes onto the apron. He turns around as his theme cuts out, and Barlow goes onto the apron, knowing Gaines can do the job on his own.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell rings, as we see MITSUBACHI and Korey Gaines starting off this matchup, and they circle the ring, slowly getting closer, before locking up! MITSUBACHI takes control, locking in a headlock, wrapping his left arm around Korey’s head, and squeezing it tight! Korey Gaines manages to shake this off however, as he slips out of the hold before placing his right arm over MITSU’s wrist, and his left through the gap, grabbing onto his own arm! He keeps MITSUBACHI in the hammerlock, before MITSU spins out of it and reverses the pressure! Now with a wrist lock applied, MITSU tries to deal as much damage to Korey as possible!
Rich Russillo: Korey rolls forward, before kipping up to his feet, and spinning out of the hold! He applies the hammerlock once again, only for MITSU to push him off the ropes! MITSUBACHI sweeps the leg, and falls into a cover!
Rich Russillo: Korey instantly kicks out, as they both stand up! MITSU runs to Korey, as Korey sweeps his leg and falls into a cover!
Rich Rusillo: Much like Korey, MITSU kicks out, and they both get to their feet. Korey threatens a superkick to the face, making MITSU raise his arms up in defense, only to superkick the knee. MITSU drops, and Korey attempts the superkick to the face, only for him to counter by rolling out of the way, now looking for a Yakuza kick, only for Korey to back off, as they stare down!
James Peters: A nice sequence of events from the two, before they back off into their corners, and tag in their partners!
James Peters: Ogawa and Barlow enter the ring, as Ogawa looks to do the same thing as MITSU, only for Barlow to catch him off guard, and tackle him to the ground! He stands up and slaps Ogawa, before backing off into the corner, and waiting for him to stand… oh no… HE RUNS FORWARD AND HITS NEVERMOR- OGAWA COUNTERS WITH A ROLLING WHEEL KICK TO THE SIDE OF JESSE’S HEAD! BARLOW FALLS BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES, AND HOLDS ONTO HIS FACE AS HE TRIES TO RECOVER! OGAWA APPROACHES HIM, BUT BARLOW THINKS QUICK AND DUCKS UNDER THE ROPES, FORCING THE REFEREE TO PULL HIM BACK! OGAWA TRIES TO BRUSH PAST, ONLY TO BE POKED IN THE EYES… SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP! JESSE’S GONNA STEAL IT!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT! OGAWA ESCAPES THE QUICK PIN, AND SCURRIES TO HIS FEET, ONLY FOR BARLOW TO HIT A SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! OGAWA CRASHES AGAINST THE MAT, BUT BOUNCES BACK TO HIS FEET! HE POWERS THROUGH THE PAIN, BEFORE HITTING A SNAP GERMAN OF HIS OWN! BARLOW QUICKLY BOUNCES BACKWARDS INTO THE CORNER AND OGAWA FOLLOW-
James Peters: BUT GAINES TAGS HIMSELF IN AND ENTERS THE RING, BEFORE CLOTHESLINING OGAWA! OGAWA FALLS DOWN, BUT RISES UP TO HIS FEET, ONLY FOR BARLOW TO GRAB HIS WAIST! GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BEFORE KOREY DROPKICKS HIM! A NICE DOUBLE TEAM MOVE! OGAWA FALLS TO THE GROUND, AS KOREY COVERS!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT! OGAWA POPS THE SHOULDER UP, PUSHING KOREY OFF OF HIM! KOREY STANDS BACK UP AND ATTEMPTS A RUNNING SHOOTING STAR, BUT OGAWA ROLLS ONTO THE APRON AND KOREY SMASHES AGAINST THE GROUND!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) FUCK! MY NOSE!
James Peters: OGAWA ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING, BEFORE SLIDING BEHIND KOREY AND… OH MY… HE’S LOOKING TO DEADLIFT HIM! HE LIFTS HIM UP, BEFORE PLANTING HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! HANG ON! KOREY GETS BACK UP AND… oh no, wait, he falls back down. He tried to do what Ogawa did earlier, but failed, heavily.
Rich Russillo: Ogawa grabs Korey’s wrist, and drags him towards the corner, where MITSUBACHI has his arm extended! He pulls Korey up, before slapping MITSU’s hand!
Rich Russillo: MITSU enters the ring, as Ogawa climbs to the middle rope. MITSUBACHI goes behind Korey, before delivering a Backstabber, and keeping him there! Ogawa leaps off the middle rope, and hits a front flip senton, crushing Korey Gaines, before MITSU rolls into a cover!
James Peters: OH MY GOD! BUT JESSE BARLOW BREAKS UP THE PIN WITH A DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO MITSUBACHI’S BACK! MTISU ROLLS OFF, AS JESSE ROLLS FORWARD, TO HIS FEET! HE HITS OGAWA WITH THE ‘SITTING DUCK’ RUNNING DOUBLE DROPKICK AFTER REBOUNDING, BEFORE PLACING GAINES ON TOP OF MITSUBACHI! THEY COULD WIN IT, ALL THANKS TO JESSE BARLOW RIGHT HERE!
Rich Russillo: BUT MITSUBACHI MANAGES TO POWER OUT OF THE COVER, THE COVER THAT KOREY DIDN’T KNOW HE WAS EVEN IN! KOREY ROLLS AWAY, AND SITS UP, BEFORE HOLDING HIS HEAD, AS HE QUESTIONS WHAT WAS HAPPENING! HE LOOKS OVER TO BARLOW, WHO HAS HIS HAND EXTENDED!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) What happened? Eh it doesn’t matter. I GOT THIS JESSE!
Jesse Barlow: (off-mic) Tag me in, man!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) Hold on! Watch this!
James Peters: Korey Gaines stands up, and begins to climb the turnbuckles, facing the other direction! Could he be looking for the Okie Nap Time!?!? Oh my god… WAIT MITSU STANDS UP, AND PUSHES HIM FORWARD!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) HOLY FUCK!
James Peters: AND KOREY LANDS ON THE BARRICADE, FACE FIRST! HE COULD BE OUT COLD! THE REFEREE BEGINS HIS COUNT!
Jesse Barlow: (off-mic) For fuck sake…
Rich Russillo: TEN- WAIT NO! BARLOW GRABS KOREY AND THROWS HIM INTO THE RING!
Jesse Barlow: (off-mic) Next time, tag me in! :wow:
James Peters: BUT I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO WORK, AS HE JUST THREW HIM RIGHT INTO MITSUBACHI’S ARMS! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX, BRIDGING OVER INTO A DEADLIFT BRAINBUSTER!
Rich Russillo: BUT AS MITSU LIFTS KOREY FOR THE BRAINBUSTER, BARLOW SUPERKICKS HIM! I DIDN’T EVEN SEE HIM ENTER THE RING, THAT WAS OUT OF NOWHERE! KOREY DROPS TO HIS FEET, AS MITSU FALLS OVER, BEFORE HE BACKS OFF INTO THE CORNER! HE RUNS FORWARD AND HITS THE SHOOTING STAR, BEFORE GOING INTO A COVER!
James Peters: BUT KOMATSU OGAWA BREAKS UP THE FALL WITH A SLIDING DROPKICK TO KOREY’S HEAD! KOREY SLIDES OFF THE COVER, BUT GETS BACK TO HIS FEET QUICKLY, ALBEIT DAZED. OGAWA CLIMBS TO THE APRON, BEFORE SLAPPING MITSU’S BACK!
Rich Russillo: OGAWA IS LEGAL, AND HE ENTERS THE RING! KOREY THROWS A LARIAT, BUT OGAWA DUCKS, AND RUNS THE ROPES! HE HITS A FOREARM STRIKE, BEFORE HE CONTINUES TO RUN, AS KOREY GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! ONLY FOR ANOTHER FOREARM TO BE DRIVEN INTO HIS FACE! BUT KOREY GETS BACK UP AGAIN, AS KOMATSU IS WAITING FOR HIM… OH MY… NOCTURNAL REAPER! SPRINGBOARD CUTTER, SPIKING KOREY GAINES INTO THE MAT, HEAD FIRST! WAIT, NO! KOREY HANDSTANDS! HE SOMEHOW MANAGES TO AVOID BEING HIT!
James Peters: OGAWA DOESN’T REALIZE THIS THOUGH, AS HE ROLLS TO HIS STOMACH, HE DOESN’T SEE A BODY BEHIND HIM! HE GETS TO HIS KNEES… SUPERKICK FROM BEHIND! OGAWA FALLS DOWN LIKE A SACK OF BRICKS, AS KOREY STUMBLES BACK AND TRIES TO RECOVER!
Rich Russillo: AS KOREY HOLDS ONTO HIS HEAD, FINDING HIS FOOTING, OGAWA CRAWLS AWAY, AIMLESSLY, POSSIBLY TRYING TO STAND BACK UP? BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER, AS KOREY GAINES HAS HIM SCOUTED! HE SLOWLY MOVES FORWARD, BEFORE STEPPING ON HIS BACK!
Korey Gaines: (off-mic) No.
James Peters: KOREY SNAPS HIS KNEE INTO OGAWA’S HEAD! OGAWA APPEARS TO BE OUT OF IT, BUT DUE TO THE ATTACK DRIVEN TO KOREY EARLIER, HE’S UNABLE TO CRAWL INTO THE COVER! BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER, BECAUSE HE’S NEXT TO THE ROPES, AND IS ABLE TO STAND BACK UP AFTER GRIPPING THE ROPES! HE STANDS BACK UP, BEFORE PULLING OGAWA TO HIS FEET!
Rich Russillo: GAINES COULD BE LOOKING FOR THE FINISHING BLOW, AS HE PLACES HIS OPPONENTS’ HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS, AND FLIPS FORWARD… OKIE DESTROYER!!!! FLIP PILEDRIVER, SPIKES KOMATSU OGAWA ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD, BEFORE ROLLING INTO A COVER!
James Peters: OGAWA POWERS OUT, THOUGH! HE CONTINUES TO FIGHT THROUGH, BUT KOREY LOOKS TO CUT HIM OFF WITH ANOTHER SUPERKICK! HOLD ON! OGAWA GRABS HIS LEG, AND TRIES TO LOCK IN AN ANKLE LOCK! KOREY REACHES FORWARD, AND GRABS THE ROPES THOUGH, BUT OGAWA CONTINUES TO GRAB HIS LEG… DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP! KOREY IS IN PAIN RIGHT NOW!
Rich Russillo: AND NOW OGAWA RUNS THE ROPES, BEFORE DELIVERING A LARIAT OVER THE TOP ROPE! BOTH MEN TUMBLE OVER, AND LAND ON THE APRON! THEY SLOWLY RISE TO THEIR FEET, AND BEGIN TO TRADE BACK AND FORTH FOREARM STRIKES TO THE HEAD!
Crowd: YEAH! BOO! YEAH! BOO! YEAH! BOO! OHHHHHH BOO!
James Peters: OGAWA STUMBLES BACK INTO THE POST, ONLY FOR BARLOW TO HIT AN ENZUIGIRI, MAKING HIM BE SEATED AGAINST THE METAL! KOREY REALIZES HIS OPENING, AND RUNS FORWARD… CANNON BALL SENTO- NO! OGAWA ROLLS INTO THE RING, AND KOREY HITS THE POST, HARD! OGAWA GRABS HIS WRIST, AND DRAGS HIM INTO THE RING, BEFORE GOING TO THE TOP ROPE! COULD HE BE LOOKING FOR THE FINISHING BLOW HERE?
Rich Russillo: WELL IT DOESN’T MATTER, AS JESSE BARLOW MEETS HIM UP TOP! HE BEGINS TO PUNCH HIM IN THE HEAD, AND OGAWA RETURNS THE STRIKES! WAIT, LOOK AT MITSUBACHI! HE’S ENTERING THE RING, AND CLIMBING UP TOP TOO! COULD THEY HIT A DOUBLE SUPERPLEX ON JESSE?!
James Peters: OH MY GOD! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX TO JESSE, ON TOP OF KOREY GAINES! HE COULD’VE CRUSHED KOREY’S RIBS USING JESSE’S BODY WEIGHT! BUT OGAWA ISN’T ABLE TO RECOVER, AND MITSU IS BARELY GETTING BACK UP!
Persephone: He doesn’t need his ribs to stand up :wow:
Rich Russillo: MITSU STUMBLES OVER, BEFORE SHAKING OGAWA BY HIS SHOULDER! HE’S TRYING TO WAKE HIM UP, TO MAKE SURE OGAWA COVERS! HE CRAWLS, BEFORE PLACING AN ARM OVER KOREY GAINES’ CHEST! THIS COULD BE IT!
Persephone: Good, it’s over.
James Peters: Not exactly! Jesse Barlow just broke it up, somehow!
Persephone: God damn it.
Rich Russillo: How is he even moving after that fall!?!? It doesn’t matter, I’m glad! He’ll finally put these two Dynasty freaks away!
James Peters: :wow:
Rich Russillo: Ogawa begins to stand, as does Barlow, before MITSUBACHI begins to forearm him over and over! Barlow tries to fight back, but Ogawa joins in! He kicks him in the gut, before they both irish whip Barlow! BUT BARLOW TAKES THEM OUT WITH A DOUBLE CHOP BLOCK! OGAWA LUCKILY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, BUT MITSU BITES THE BULLET, AND GETS KNOCKED DOWN! BARLOW RISES UP, NOT KNOWING OGAWA IS THERE, BEFORE HE’S TAKEN OUT BY ‘DESTINY’S END’!! SOMERSAULT REVERSE DDT, OGAWA’S FINISHING MOVE! WAIT, NO! BARLOW PUSHES OGAWA AWAY, BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES, LOOKING FOR NEVERMORE AGAIN- DIVING YAKUZA KICK! MITSUBACHI TAKES HIM OUT, AND NOW IT’S JUST GAINES VS OGAWA-
James Peters: SUPERKICK TO OGAWA FROM KOREY GAINES! HE PLAYED IT SMART, AND AT THE RIGHT TIME STRUCK! OGAWA BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, BEFORE GETTING HIT WITH A SECOND, AND HE FALLS TO HIS KNEES! KOREY LIFTS HIS HEAD UP, BEFORE STEPPING BACK… DETONATION KICK! SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK, BUT KOMATSU DUCKS, BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! KOREY DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HE IS, ONLY TO BE MET WITH A LEAPING FRONT FLIP SENTON! CRUSHING THE BACK THIS TIME! OGAWA LIFTS KOREY BACK UP, AND LOOKS TO END IT… DESTINY’S END- NO! KOREY COUNTERS, THE SAME WAY JESSE DID, BEFORE HITTING THE DETONATION KICK! KOMATSU FALLS INTO THE CORNER, AS KOREY STUMBLES FORWARD! HE LOOKS TO TAG IN JESSE, BUT HE’S NOT THERE! HE’S KNOCKED OUT ON THE OUTSIDE!
Rich Russillo: IT’S FINE! HE’LL DO IT! KOREY IRISH WHIPS OGAWA TO THE OTHER CORNER, BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD AND ATTEMPTING A CLOTHESLINE- NO! OGAWA DUCKS, BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! HE DUCKS A BACK ELBOW, BEFORE HE HITS THE ROPES AGAIN… A THIRD ATTEMPT AT IT… DESTINY’S END! NO! IT CONNECTS! NO NO NO! THIS CAN’T BE IT! KOREY KICK OUT, JESSE BREAK IT UP, OR SOMETHING! COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: WHAT!?
(‘The Invisible Wall’ by The GazettE hits the speakers as the virtual crowd erupts with a split of cheers and boos, as Komatsu Ogawa slowly rises to his feet.)
Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS. THE DUO OF MITSUBACHI AND KOMATSUUUUUUUUUU OOOOOOOGAAAWAAAAAAAAA!!
James Peters: They did it! They pinned the number one contenders to the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships!
Rich Russillo: Blasphemy, I tell you! Get a replay of that!
James Peters: I don’t think that was blasphemy! They pinned the number one contenders, clean!
Rich Russillo: :noah:
(As Ogawa and MITSUBACHI celebrate on the top rope, Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Promotional ad for Voltage’s Wicked Games, featuring all of the announced matches thus far.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break and cuts to the backstage area. A beautiful, yet old fashioned kitchen is featured. Delicate curtains with a floral pattern and lace trim hang from the window that sits above the sink area. There is a stainless steel stove that is in pristine condition, and several pots and pans that have obviously been used are still on the burners. The area definitely looks like it has been recently used and the camera pans over to a sign with bright lights on it that says “Country Cookin’ with Kensingten” on it. An applause track is heard in the background as the Southern Belle herself, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, slides into the picture. She is dressed in all her Southern finery, a red and white, tea-length polka dotted dress, with black kitten heels, and a frilly white apron. Her long golden locks are pulled up into a neat, curly ponytail with several loose tendrils hanging down and framing her lovely face. Kensingten smiles into the camera and claps her perfectly manicured hands together with obvious glee.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Oh mah goodness! Welcome everyone to another edition of ‘Country Cookin’ with Kensingten’!!! I am your host, the one… the only ‘Steel Magnolia’… Kensingten Calhoun-Astor! I hope y’all are just having the best little time watching Voltage tonight! I just absolutely can not express how excited I am for tonight’s edition of ‘Country Cookin’ with Kensingten’ because I have two very fine guests joining me! In fact, these two little ones will be squaring off against one another next weekend at Wicked Games!!! That’s right, y’all. I am so pleased to bring Mr. Malcolm Jones and a good friend of mine, Miss Darcy May Morgan, together tonight at my dinner table. Now I do hope Miss Morgan got my little note about the dress code! She still dresses a little trashy on occasion despite me trying to help her a few months ago when we were both Dynasty competitors. But no matter. I won’t be the one judging Miss Morgan for her terrible taste in clothing. We all know that the good Lord above is the one who casts the final judgment.
(A fake little smile flashes across Kensingten’s face and she turns her attention towards the beautifully decorated kitchen table. Granny May’s finest china and silverware sits at the table where two places have been set on top of a beautiful lace tablecloth that looks like it came from the 1800s.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Now what I think I’m going to do is bring my guests out one at a time. The first guest tonight is a gentleman who absolutely just does not need any introduction. Please put your hands together for the one, the only… Malcolm Jones!
(After a moment, Malcolm walks onto the set and he really looks like he would rather die than be anywhere around Kensingten Calhoun-Astor. Kensington attempts to greet Malcolm with a friendly handshake but he looks down at her like her hand is diseased.)
Malcolm Jones: You sure you want to shake my hand?
(Kensingten flashes Malcolm a rather nervous.)
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: Of course, sugar! Why wouldn’t I? You’re a guest in my dining room tonight!
Malcolm Jones: Well considering you’re a racist piece of shit with a white supremacy complex and some MAGA spoutin’, Trump lovin’ cunt of a person, I just figured you wouldn’t want a black man around ya.
(Kensingten’s smile freezes in place and she lets out a rather loud, obviously fake laugh.)
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: Now Mr. Jones, I understand that I have said some controversial things in the past, and I do regret showing my ignorance. I have learned from my errors and perhaps tonight can be a bit of a peace offering, from me to you! I have cooked you the most delicious dinner and if you could just have a seat… that would just be super!
(Malcolm glares at Kensingten but nevertheless he goes to sit down at the table.)
Malcolm Jones: No MAGA place cards?
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Mr. Jones, please. It’s not very polite to bring up politics around the dinner table, but did you know that President Trump has done more for the black community than any other Pres-
Malcolm Jones: Bitch, I will literally slap the fuck out of you if you ever try and come at me with that bullshit again. Just drag Darcy’s ‘arse’ out here so we can get the show on the road and this shit over with.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Fine, fine. You sure are a fussy one today.
Malcolm Jones: So basically you’re calling me an angry black man?
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Heavens, no! That is just not what I said at all. ANYWAYS! Joining Mr. Jones and myself for dinner tonight is a woman who made a mighty nice statement back at Pain for Pride when she became only the second woman in history to win the illustrious Cash in the Vault briefcase, basically guaranteeing herself a future world championship reign. Please welcome, Darcy May Morgan!
(Darcy walks onto the set and Kensingten just can’t help but let out a dramatic gasp when she sees how Darcy is dressed. Darcy has purposely come to ‘Country Cookin’ with Kensingten’ wearing a skin tight, fire engine red mini-dress that leaves very little to the imagination and thigh-high black leather hooker boots. Kensingten’s face turns red and she makes a disapproving sound.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Well Miss Morgan, how do you do! That is most certainly NOT what I expected you to show up in!
(Darcy gives Kensingten an innocent smile and looks down at her outfit.)
Darcy May Morgan: No? I think I look mighty nice as your kind like to say! Now if you don’t mind, I am just positively famished!
(Darcy is clearly mocking Kensingten and speaking in a really terrible Southern accent. Darcy looks over at Malcolm and then makes her way to her seat. She drops a fake little curtsy towards Malcolm and takes her seat across from him.)
Darcy May Morgan: Well good evening, Malcolm! How are you on this lovely Sunday?
Malcolm Jones: Annoyed and bored. Ready to get the fuck out of here and turn my attention towards Wicked Games.
Darcy May Morgan: We are both on the same page when it comes to that. I’ll admit that I was surprised when you walked out of the lockerroom last week and challenged me. For the last month or so, we have been working together pretty well and both of us found ourselves with similar opinions on certain things.
Malcolm Jones: You mean when it comes to Drake?
Darcy May Morgan: Yes.
Malcolm Jones: Look, I want a match at Wicked Games. You want a match at Wicked Games. I enjoy beating the shit out of people, and all that good stuff. You want a marquee match and a chance to score your biggest win to date, may as well give you the match you crave, even though it’s not gunna get you the result you want.
(Darcy is about to reply when Kensingten comes back to the table. She is carrying a pitcher full of sweet tea and she makes a production out of pouring it into the glasses.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Absolutely no meal is complete without some good ole, ice cold sweet tea! Oh! I got biscuits for y’all too, although Miss Morgan, these are American biscuits. I know where you come from biscuits are something entirely different, but that’s okay! It’s alright to have differences.
(Kensingten flashes Malcolm a smile and he just glares at her. Darcy rolls her eyes, but she does pick up the sweet tea and take a sip. Almost immediately she spits it out.)
Darcy May Morgan: That tastes like pure sugar with a little water mixed in!
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Well, Miss Morgan, what did you expect? It’s sweet iced tea, not that bitter English breakfast tea you are accustomed to.
(Kensingten makes a face at Darcy and disappears back into the kitchen.)
Malcolm Jones: You brave for drinking anything that comes from that woman.
Darcy May Morgan: I don’t hardly think she’s going to poison either of us on live television.
Malcolm Jones: You’re not the best judge of character are you?
(Darcy can’t help but roll her eyes.)
Darcy May Morgan: Are you really going to start with this again?
Malcolm Jones: Honestly, no. It’s a waste of time and energy because you’re just gonna continue being thick headed and not see anything wrong with certain situations. Luckily for you, I don’t have any issue with knocking some sense into you and that’s what imma do come Wicked Games.
Darcy May Morgan: Oh spare me, Malcolm. You know as well as I do that I’m going be one the most difficult opponents you’ve ever faced here in EAW. I’m Miss Cash in the Vault, for crying out, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to remind everyone why I deserve this briefcase. It should have been Bloodsport. It should have been Territorial Invasion. I’m MAKING SURE that it happens at Wicked Games.
(Malcolm can’t help but laugh.)
Malcolm Jones: At my expense? Delusional bi-
(Before Malcolm can finish his thought, Darcy absolutely levels him with ‘TTYN’! The left-handed knockout punch sends Malcolm out of his chair and as he grips the table to pull himself back up, Darcy smashes her CiTV briefcase across Malcolm’s face, knocking him out.)
Darcy May Morgan: One way or another, Malcolm. You’re going down come Wicked Games.
(Darcy saunters off the set right as Kensingten comes in with dinner. Her facial expression turns one of shock as she looks at the carnage.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Well my goodness. I turn my back for five minutes to go get this food and they don’t had a little spat I see! I made delicious fish and chips for Miss Morgan in honor of her British roots and I made Mr. Jones an amazing plate of soul food.
(Kensingten sits the plates down and needless to say, they do not look appetizing. The fish and chips are frozen fish sticks slapped on a plate with some Lays plain potato chips. As far as the soul food, what looks to be meatloaf is on the plate alongside some wilted greens and kraft Mac and cheese. Kensingten looks devastated that she isn’t getting a chance to serve her delicious dinners. She shakes her head.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Well I guess that wraps up this week’s episode. If you want the recipe for Cousin Ella Mae’s prize winning meatloaf, make sure you check out my Instagram! It’s made with squirrel, y’all! Until next time… ta ta for now!
(Kensingten waves to the camera and the scene fades to black.)
(WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 21ST. EARLIER THIS WEEK)
Narrator: Earlier this week, Voltage Elitist Drake King took a road trip that has been the subject of much controversy internationally. For those of you who have not seen the international news coverage of the incident we present to you unedited footage taken by Drake’s own camera crew during his time in Mexico.
(The camera fades into busy city streets before fading in to a large factory in the city. A Mexican flag is shown flying over a nearby building as many workers come in and out of the factory’s many doors. A large Corona truck is shown leaving beneath a sign that reads “Grupo Modelo”.)
Trabajador: ¡Más rápido por favor! ¡Tenemos mucho trabajo hoy!
Trabajadora: ¡Necesitamos terminar esto pronto! Necesito ir a casa con mi familia esta noche.
Trabajador: Claro que sí. Necesitamos llevar la Corona a la gente para que se sientan más positivos.
(The workers continue to rush back and forth clearly having a very busy day as trucks of Modelo, Corona, Pacifico, y Leon are all shown taking to the streets to complete their deliveries. Likewise a number of empty trucks are shown entering the factory. Drake King exits a taxi on the sidewalk outside the factory as he sprays himself with perfume and underpays the driver who calls him a “pendejo” before driving off. Drake looks concerned until a man on the street passes by and offers him a bible which he takes with a smile on his face. Drake walks up to the camera and asks them to start filming him which they do focusing on his face as he makes his way into the factory.)
Drake King: Well maybe this place isn’t so bad after all. Well anyway I need to do this. I am here in Mexico on a mission and I think that this is the place. Grupo Modelo this is the facility where they manufacture Corona beer. Probably the only one I’m sure. This is Mexico City or something I guess they just got lazy and decided to name the city after the country. That is the kind of thing I would expect from TLA. Not a lot of hard work with that one. Of course they are not all like him so I expect that they will see reason.
(Drake King puts on latex gloves as he reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out an empty bottle of Corona.)
Drake King: From what I have been able to determine this “Corona” is the official beer of the Poon Palace. It is disgusting but I am told it tastes a lot better down here in Mexico. Not that I am going to try it. I wouldn’t do that to my body besides it is a sin. If I am going to drink something it is going to be drinking in the holy beverage of faith. But I have to come here in order to further my vision of a future for EAW. This has to be done one way or another. I mean alcohol is bad anyway right?
(Drake King makes his way inside the visitor’s entrance after initially trying to enter the employee entrance. However, there were some very large and intimidating looking guards there so he thought better of it. Drake walks up to the receptionist desk as he prepares to introduce himself. Drake takes out an English to Spanish dictionary as he prepares to infiltrate this facility.)
Drake King: Hola. Gracias. ¿Cómo estás? Yo soy tu mesías Drake King. Estoy aquí para salvarte. Necesito para detener Corona inmediatamente.
Recepcionista: ¿Qué? No entiendo señor. ¿Quieres una muestra gratis de Corona?
(Drake King looks confused as he flips through the pages of his dictionary but it doesn’t seem to be helping him very much.)
Drake King: Arriba arriba.
Recepcionista: ¿Un regalo? Por favor pruebe nuestros productos señor.
(Drake King looks irritated as the recepcionista produces a bottle of Modelo Especial for him and hands him a pen to sign the guest book.)
Drake King: Look look look. I am going to be straight up with you ma’am. I am Drake King the Redeemer and I am here for one reason. To demand that you stop producing Corona beer right this very instant. I am serious about that sister! Corona is the official beverage of the Poon Palace and it has to go. Of course TLA would have alcohol as his official beverage because he is a degenerate but that doesn’t mean you people have to let him drag you down with him. Just stop. You all need to stop because it will make the world a better place.
(The recepcionista looks confused as she smiles warmly at Drake in a “I’m trying to maintain my professionality” kind of way before holding up one finger.)
Recepcionista: Lo siento señor. No entiendo inglés. Permítame consultar a mi compañero de trabajo.
(The woman leaves the desk and goes back into a nearby office to talk to a number of her coworkers about the situation.)
Drake King: Well it looks like my mission is a success. The board of directors of Grupo Modelo are currently holding a meeting to discuss disbanding their Corona product. Honestly it doesn’t make much sense to me that they would sell it anyway. I mean their name is Modelo not Corona. I am just making their brand make more sense and be more recognizable to the general public. Besides Corona according to my dictionary means crown in English and the only person who should have a crown is a king. Like Jesus or like Drake King.
(After some time one of the men that the receptionist was talking to makes their way out to the desk to greet Drake King.)
Representante: Welcome to Grupo Modelo señor. Welcome to Mexico. We are very happy to have you and we assure you that we are taking your concerns very seriously. I am told that you had questions about our Corona product.
Drake King: Yes. Specifically about ending it.
Representante: Well we would like to show you around the facility. We are told that you are quite well known in America. We looked you up and see that you are a former wrestling champion for the EAW promotion? My son is a big fan and I think he would love to meet you. He is currently here today as my wife has had to take a second job during these times of pandemic. Speaking of which we appreciate that you agreed to wear a mask when entering the facility that is very respectful.
(Drake King cringes at the representative using the word former but quickly regains his composure.)
Drake King: Yes unlike the disgraced luchador TLA I actually keep my mask on. Look I don’t have time for this. I don’t have time to meet your kid. I have a message to spread and that involves you shutting down production of Corona immediately. I don’t know why you are helping TLA but if I can save you then I promise you will be forgiven.
Representante: Apologies but we do not believe in your message. In fact you mentioned TLA and we here at Grupo Modelo are huge fans of his. Let us show you.
(Drake King reluctantly follows the man as a number of workers recognize him and turn from their duties as he passes to yell things at him.)
Trabajador: ¡Mira! Es el gringo el que grita “OK! OK! OK!” todo el tiempo!
Otro trabajador: ¡Mira! Es el cabrón que perdió con el profeta visual!
Drake King: I don’t like how some of these words sound. What are they saying?
Representante: Pay them no mind. Come come look. We just recently completed our newest attraction. We hope that it will change your mind and make you reconsider your message.
(The representative leads Drake King to the very center of the headquarters where he nearly passes out at what he sees.)
Drake King: What… what is this?
Representante: This is our latest art exhibit! It has greatly increased the morale of our workers! We call it “Los hombres de Corona difundiendo positividad!!!”.
(Drake King is left staring in horror as the camera pans out to reveal a giant golden statue at the middle of the Grupo Modelo headquarters. Depicted is the recently eliminated tag team from the Grand Prix tournament known as the Corona Hombres. TLA and Terry Chambers are shown side by side with giant smiles on their faces giving the thumbs up sign. A number of workers are shown walking by clearly tired from the slog of a hard days work but as they pass they throw up a thumbs up and a smile at the statue and feel instantly rejuvenated and ready to finish their day con gusto.)
Drake King: What the frick is this?!?!? You people really are out here heralding TLA and Terry Chambers of all people as gods? Are you actually serious? What is wrong with you?
Representative: Well you see recently due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic unfortunately the Corona brand our largest product has taken a horrible hit. Major financial difficulties ensued! However, with the efforts of TLA and Terry Chambers there has recently been an incredible resurgence in sales! In fact some people around here have even been calling for TLA to become the President of Mexico!
Drake King: …
(Drake King watches in horror as he sees a couple of tourists being shown the facility wearing TLA 2024 t-shirts with the slogan “Haz México positivo otra vez”.)
Drake King: Did Halloween come early? I feel like I have walked into a horror movie into a world where TLA is looked at as a god. This is the last thing that should be happening. This might even be worse than what I saw at Pain for Pride. This can’t happen. No this won’t happen. I demand to speak to your boss.
Representative: Sir I am the manager.
Drake King: I said YOUR boss.
Representative: Well I report directly to the CEO and he is a very busy man. Mi jefe no quiere se interrumpid-
???: Hola muchachos! Escuché que teníamos un invitado especial aquí.
Representative: Ah jefe gracias. Su nombre es Drake King.
???: Of course! Of course! I know exactly who you are Mr. King. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the CEO of Grupo Modelo. Now what was this about our Corona brand.
Drake King: End it! Kill it with fire!
CEO: I am afraid we cannot do that Mr. King. You see I have a personal interest in making sure the Corona brand continues on forever and ever.
Drake King: Why is that? Why would you want to continue this? This is horrifying! This is a nightmare come to life!
CEO: Well you see Mr. King no matter what you say or do I will not end it. Because Corona runs deep in my bloodline. I go back to the very beginning! However, I am not the only one because while our relation may be quite distant you see I am in fact cousins with TLA and personally I wish him all the success in the world at whipping yo culo at Wicked Games! Jajaja you should have seen the look on your face when he burned those resignation papers! Did you really think he would fall for that?
Drake King: …
CEO: Is something wrong ese? You mad?
Drake King: :noah:
CEO: Now now tranquilo homie. No need for all this hostility! This is Mexico! Enjoy life my man!
Drake King: What the frick is this crap??? You are telling me that you are TLA’s cousin? You mean to tell me that someone actually allowed one of TLA’s family members to have a prominent corporate position in this country? Are you all insane? This is far worse than I thought. I don’t just need to end Corona but maybe I need to end this whole country too. I mean maybe you can be the 51st state or something…
(The CEO pats Drake King on the shoulder seeing that he is literally shaking and puts a bottle of Corona into his hands.)
CEO: There there. There is no need for all of that gringo shit. Mi primo TLA is an honorable man. A true luchador. He honors our culture and is a proud representative of Mexico. You should just take a quick taste of this Corona and then maybe we can all keep it tranquilo. TLA is an honorable man.
Drake King: NO!
(Drake King slams the Corona on the ground as it shatters into a million glass pieces.)
Drake King: NO! NO! NO!
CEO: SI! SI! SI!
Drake King: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
(Drake King shoves the CEO to the ground as he begins to clutch the sides of his head completely losing it.)
CEO: Ayyy este hombre esta completamente loco!
(Drake King tackles a nearby worker and knocks his tools over. Drake reaches into his bag of tools and pulls out a hammer.)
Trabajador: ¡No mi martillo! ¡Devuélvemelo!
(Drake King turns towards the giant golden statue of TLA and Terry Chambers and begins to smash it with the hammer. Drake knocks off the thumbs up that TLA is giving first. Then he nails Terry Chambers in the balls with the hammer. Lastly he smashes the hammer right into the smiling teeth of TLA as the gold begins to rain down like sparkles over the entire area of the facility. Drake is shown heavily breathing as he relentlessly begins to hammer away at every part of the statue that he can reach.)
CEO: ¡Seguridad! ¡Arresten a este gringo loco!
(Suddenly a large group of federales barges into the building and tackles Drake King to the ground. A number of them get in shots with a baton and another uses a taser on him before they eventually have him in handcuffs. They drag him up and begin to haul him out of the facility.)
CEO: I hope you enjoy your night in a Mexican prison holmes. Somehow I don’t think you are going to be fitting in very well there.
(Drake King spits hard in the CEO’s face as he begins to be dragged away. However, suddenly the CEO gets a phone call and asks them to hold on a second while he steps away to talk to whoever is calling.)
CEO: Ayyyy si si si. Entiendo. No lo arrestaremos. Es un idiota como nos dijiste.
(The CEO walks back over to where the feds are arresting Drake King and asks them to let him go.)
CEO: You are a lucky man Drake King. You seem to have a guardian angel.
Drake King: Well that would make sense. I am everyone else’s guardian angel tho. I am glad you came to reason. Now maybe you will shut down Corona and also step down as CEO to put a non-TLA family member in charge?
CEO: You misunderstand me. You are being released for one reason and one reason only. You see I have been informed that if you are arrested here today you will not be able to get extradited in time to make it for Voltage or Wicked Games. So on his behalf I have agreed to not press charges. But I will certainly be billing you for the expenses you have caused to my facility. I hope you are prepared to pay up.
Drake King: On his behalf? Wait no… you don’t mean…
(The CEO pulls his phone out and sets it to speaker mode.)
TLA: (on speaker) – Ayo que pasa Drake what is happening vato loco? Yo yo yo I heard that you was down in Mexico right now. The fuck you doing down there ese? You invading my turf out here bruh I am in New Jersey right now! You ain’t had to go that far you looking to find me! Yo I heard that you got into a little bit of trouble. You be doing that criminal type shit that vandalismo and yo we just don’t tolerate that shit south of the border. You gonna end up killed holmes! Nah you lucky you ran into mi familia or this shit could have gone really bad for you dawg. But yo don’t worry I got you covered. You can thank me later on. Send me that gracias. In the meantime just stop with all that mierda yo bullshit really do be making things worse for you. Ayo adios and say hola to mi abuelo while you down there I heard he been real lonely during the pandemic. Yo I got this old chica down there too she knows me. She will know you. I know she will show you a good time take you to the local Poon Palace. Amigo! You thought the American Poon Palaces were crazy! You ain’t seen loco yet dawg! Ayo see you at Wicked Games homie! Imma fuck you up real bad!
(TLA hangs up the phone as the CEO puts it into his pocket.)
Drake King: …
(Drake King is literally shaking and blatantly furious.)
CEO: So. After all you have experienced here after all that is said and done do you have anything to say? Anything to defend this pathetic display of entitled rage that you have put on in mi empresa?
Drake King: …
CEO: Of course. Of course. I would not expect a child like you to repent. So be it. Get him the hell out of here. Tenemos trabajo que hacer. Tenemos pesos para ganar.
(Drake King hangs limply and silently as the feds drag him out of the building and throw him into a dirty back alleyway behind the factory as the footage fades to black.)
(SATURDAY OCTOBER 24TH. YESTERDAY)
Narrator: Since the incident there have been many rumors that have flown around. Some have called Drake King an international terrorist sent by the United States government. We wish to present this footage to quell some of the more extreme theories that have been presented on the internet this week. However, there is always a grain of truth to every story and at this time we can officially confirm one thing. Drake King has indeed been officially banned from setting foot in Mexico ever again.
(The camera cuts to a commercial featuring Andrea Valentine trying out her black pass. Remember she is allowed to say it.)
(‘This is Your Life’ by The Dust Brothers & Tyler Durden. Drake King slowly comes out with his arms spread and a huge smile on his face, standing at the rampway looking at the virtual crowd ready to do a sermon.)
Bella Braxton: His opponent, hails from the Dead Sea in Israel! Weighing in at 225 pounds! He is DRAKE THE REDEEMER!!!!!!!!!!
(As Drake hears his name, nodding he comes walking down to the ring slowly, getting to the apron and walking up the stairs, looking around before turning to announce team and nodding.)
Persephone: Oh blessed.
James Peters: Drake King is out here and this match stems from last week during the Grand Prix when Drake decided to insert himself in the match when once again, Terry Chambers could have had Minerva pinned had he and TLA finished the maneuver, it cost Terry though we all saw his foot under the ropes.
Rich Russillo: And Terry Chambers is NOT a happy guy right now, but we do know he faces Minerva at Wicked Games and it should be a good one.
(As Drake’s theme dies down, it is replaced by “Natural” by Imagine Dragons. Terry Chambers slowly comes out from the back, standing there looking at the virtual crowd before nodding and making his way toward the ring.)
Bella Braxton: His opponent, Hails from Detroit, MI! Weighing in at 257 pounds! “THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE” TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!
(Terry quickly makes a bee line into the ring sliding in from the bottom rope and quickly attacking Drake as the referee calls for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
James Peters: Terry Chambers is not wasting anytime! He is going right after Drake King and he is laying the fists into the Redeemer! He backs him up to the corner, whipping him against the ropes, BACK BODY DROP! DRAKE WAS LIFTED TEN FEET IN THE AIR AND HE LANDED! HARD! Drake is in a lot of trouble in the opening seconds and looks at Terry! This is the beast Minerva will have to contend with at Wicked Games! Terry has Drake by the neck…. And HE LAUNCHES KING HALF-WAY ACROSS THE RING! DRAKE IS SLOWLY BACK ON HIS FEET! CLOTHESLINE OVER THE TOP ROPE! DRAKE LANDS HARD ON THE FLOOR! BUT WAIT! TERRY IS GOING AFTER HIM!
Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE HAS LOST COMPLETE CONTROL OF THIS MATCH! TERRY CHAMBERS GRABS DRAKE, SLAMMING HIS HEAD INTO THE STEEL STEPS! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! DRAKE IS SPAGHETTI LEGGED! THE REFEREE IS ABOUT TO ADMINISTER THE COUNT BUT TERRY WHIPS DRAKE INTO THE BARRICADE! TERRY LIFTS HIM UP OVER HIS HEAD!
Rich Russillo: TERRY THROWS DRAKE BACK INTO THE RING! Terry slides in and Drake is crawling to the corner! He is holding on the turnbuckle but here is Terry! He is kicking Drake, grabbing him by the leg, he starts to pull him off! Drake is holding on top the ropes for dear life! TERRY YANKS HIM AND DRAKE FLIES AND FALLS FLAT ON HIS CHEST AND FACE! Drake has not been able to get out of the gates as Terry Chambers came running in ready to fight, stemming from his frustrations the last few weeks and he is showing it!
Persephone: He attacked him before the match started, he should have been disqualified! Drake shouldn’t have to take this, and the referee needs to do their job!
James Peters: They are doing the job, Drake made his bed, and now he is sleeping in it! Terry Chambers has Drake by the hair, a forearm! Another forearm! Irish Whipping Drake into the turnbuckle, he follows up with a clothesli… no! Drake with a boot! Terry hit hard but he is staggering back, DRAKE WITH A HIGH KNEE RIGHT TO THE CHEST AND JAW OF CHAMBERS! TERRY FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES RIGHT INTO SCRIPTURE! THE CUTTER CAUGHT TERRY AND DRAKE JUST FALLS ON HIM FOR THE EARLY COVER!
James Peters: TERRY POWERS OUT WITH FORCE! Drake is looking and he can’t believe the onslaught he was caught in! He needs to slow Terry Chambers down or he will find himself at the wrong end of the stick! Drake is dropping to the mat; he is choking Terry! The referee is trying to break the choke!
(Drake breaks the choke!)
Rich Russillo: He has him down right now, but Drake is laying the boots to Terry while on the mat! He picks up the big monster, whipping him into the corner, charging in TERRY WITH A HUGE LARIAT OUT OF THE CORNER! DRAKE FLIPPED IN MIDAIR! TERRY CHAMBERS IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW! HE IS SENDING A MESSAGE TO MINERVA THROUGH DRAKE THAT THIS IS WHAT’S COMING TO YOU! DRAKE IS STARTING TO GET UP, TERRY LOCKS HIM IN, STANDING DELAYED SUPLEX, ALL THE BLOOD RUSHING TO HIS HEAD AND DROPPING HIM HARD! Terry is not going for a cover, he wants to punish Drake, now lifting him to his feet, whipping him against the ropes, he goes for a powerslam… NO! DRAKE FLOATS OVER! KICK TO THE GUT! TERRY BENDS OVER AND DRAKE WITH A RUNNING NECKBREAKER! HE QUICKLY GOES FOR A COVER!
Persephone: Just stay down Chambers! I really hope that Minerva bitch gets rid of this guy.
James Peters: Terry Chambers right now could tear anyone apart! Drake runs against the ropes, a Knee to the chest of Terry! He sits up Chambers, Ramming the knee to the middle of his back! Drake is trying to slow this down! He is wrenching on Terry’s back some, placing his hands on the chin, pulling back, looks like he wants to hurt his back, Drake is thinking of slowing Terry down who lets be honest, he has completely dominated this match from the opening bell and Drake knows it, this is his chance to grab a little momentum himself. Drake is wearing down Terry and you can tell that he is in a lot of pain from this. Terry is trying hard to escape it, but he is weakened, the neckbreaker was able to really slow Terry down, but wait! He is starting to power out! Are you kidding me!?
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers right now is a machine and there is nothing that is going to stop him right now from getting it done! Terry is leaning forward, but Drake is holding the chinlock, but…. Wait…. TERRY IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET! DRAKE IS SITTING ON TERRY’S SHOULDERS! HE IS BACK UP AND BACK BODY DROP RIGHT ON DRAKE’S GROIN! Terry Chambers is trying to recover but his back is hurt slowly getting up, he is up to his feet again, he grabs Drake by the hair, a right! And a left! And a Right! Drake is stumbling back, Terry Chambers whips him into the ropes, bouncing back, Terry picks up Drake in the air, RUNNING POWERSLAM! He is still not going for a cover! Terry Chambers is a man possessed right now! He picks up Drake who is out on his feet….. he hoists Drake on to his shoulder, running to the turnbuckle… SNAKE EYES!
James Peters: Drake is stunned and MOMENT OF SILENCE! DRAKE GOES DOWN AND TERRY DROPS FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: DRAKE KICKS OUT! TERRY IS LITERALLY PUNCHING HIM IN THE FACE! DRAKE IS TAKING HIT AFTER HIT! TERRY IS PICKING HIM UP TOI HIS FEET, WHIPPING HIM TO THE ROPES, RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLE… NO! DRAKE DROPS TO THE MATS AND TERRY FLIES RIGHT OVER HIM! TERRY IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, KICK TO THE GUT! ASCENSION! DRAKE KING JUST HIT THE PEDIGREE ON TERRY CHAMBERS AND THIS ONE IS OVER!
Persephone: How did he kick out of that!? Come on, we still have so much more show to go!
Rich Russillo: Now this is getting to the point that any big move could take care of anyone of these wrestlers.
Drake King: (Off Mic) I HANDED YOU MINERVA, BROTHER TERRY! I WAS THE ONE THAT OPENED THE POSSIBILITY FOR YOU TO EXORCISE THE DEMON! WHY ARE YOU SO MAD AT ME, LOVE YOUR MESSIAH, BROTHER TERRY! LOVE ME AND BE GRATEFUL THAT I ANOINTED YOU THE WARRIOR OF LIGHT TO TAKE DOWN THE DARKNESS KNOWN AS MINERVA!
Persephone: He is such a good guy.
Rich Russillo: Are you being serious right now? Drake King cost Terry the match last week and a chance to advance to the Grand Prix, that is twice now that he had Minerva defeated and Drake took that away from him!
Persephone: Uh, we are talking about Terry here, there are no guarantees that he was pinning her.
Rich Russillo: Whatever, Persephone. Drake is trying to reason with Terry Chambers, and he waits for Terry Chambers to get up, wait… he gets back up, Drake is waiting, HE GOES FOR JUDGEMENT DAY, BUT NO! TERRY GETS OUT OF THE WAY! SIDESTEPPING! KICK IN THE GUT! CHAMBERS OF PAIN!!! NO! DRAKE IS ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY, DRAKE WITH THE CROWN OF THORNS! HE HAS TERRY DOWN AND HE GOES FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS KICKS OUT! DRAKE IS IN SHOCK! HE IS READY TO PULL HIS HAIR OUT! DRAKE KING IS CLIMBING THE TOP ROPE, TERRY IS HURT THOUGH, HE IS SLOWLY TRYING TO GET BACK UP, BUT DRAKE WITH A FROGSPLASH! NO! TERRY CHAMBERS GETS UP THE KNEES AND DRAKE LANDS HARD ON HIS KNEES! DRAKE IS HOLDING HIS STOMACH! HE HAS THE WIND KNOCKED OUT OF HIM AND TERRY CHAMBERS LIFTS HIM UP FOR A SITDOWN POWERBOMB! THIS MATCH IS OVER!
Rich Russillo: I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! DRAKE KICKS OUT! TERRY CHAMBERS IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, HE IS STANDING IN THE CORNER, HERE WE GO AGAIN! DRAKE KING SLOWLY GETTING UP, TERRY CHAMBERS HE IS READY, DRAKE GETS UP AND RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE, NO! DRAKE KING AGAIN GETS OUT OF THE WAY BUT THIS TIME TERRY CHAMBERS LANDS ON HIS FEET! DRAKE TURNS AND TERRY PICKS HIM UP FOR THE T-5! DRAKE IS TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! HE IS ELBOWING TERRY! TRYING TO SQUIRM OFF HIS SHOULDERS! TERRY STUMBLES AND DROPS DRAKE TO HIS FEET, HE TURNS AND SPEAR BY DRAKE! HE TORE TERRY IN HALF! HOOKING THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: This is getting stupid, this match has been on over ten minutes now, come on!
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS KICKS OUT! HE IS SO DETERMINED TO GET THE WIN! HE WANTS THE MOMENTUM GOING INTO WICKED GAMES AND MAKE DRAKE PAY FOR WHAT HE DID LAST WEEK! WE ARE LOOKING AT A MAN ON A MISSION! DRAKE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO! HE IS READY TO FINISH THIS! PICKING UP TERRY BY THE HAIR! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND SETTING HIM UP FOR THE OVERHAUL! TERRY IS ABLE TO REVERSE IT, DRAKE STEPS IN AND TERRY PICKS HIM UP FOR THE T-5! TERRY HAS HIM UP FOR THE T-5 AND TERRY CONNE……Wait, what the hell is this?
Persephone: Oh thank god, I never thought I would be happy to see MINERVA!
(Minerva shows up at the top of the ramp, slowly starting to walk down to the ring and Terry hesitates for a second before he nods and smirks….)
Terry Chambers: (Off-Mic) THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO MINNIE!
(She slowly takes off her glasses and hat, placing them on the floor, she then runs to the apron as the referee warns her to get down.)
Rich Russillo: TERRY CHAMBERS HAS A CHANCE TO WIN THIS MATCH BUT MINERVA IS ON THE APRON STARING AT TERRY, THEY ARE GLARING AT EACH OTHER AND TERRY NEEDS TO DROP DRAKE WITH THE T-5 FOR THE WIN! WHY IS HE WASTING TIME!?
James Peters: HE WANTS HER TO WATCH AND SEND A MESSAGE TO WHAT SHE WILL EXPERIENCE COME WICKED GAMES! TERRY DROPS DRAKE AND GRABS MINERVA! HE TRIES TO PULL HER INTO THE RING AND THE DARK! MINERVA JUST SPIT THE DARK AGAIN IN TERRY’S FACE! THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT AS SHE JUST STARES AT HIM, HE WALKS BACK RIGHT INTO THE GUILLOTINE! DRAKE KING HIT IT AND TERRY CHAMBERS FALLS TO THE MAT! DRAKE KING IS ON TOP OF HIM FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: NOT LIKE THIS!
Persephone: Thank you Minerva!
(Drake hooks the leg for the cover.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH….. DRAKE THE REDEEMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(‘This is Your Life’ by The Dust Brothers & Tyler Durden starts to play throughout the arena as the referee holds up the arm of Drake King. He is slowly getting up when Minerva crawls into the ring staring at Drake King.)
Drake King: (Off-Mic) BEHEST AND STAY AWAY FROM ME YOU HERETIC!
(Drake King quickly jumps out of the ring, still spaghetti legged from the beating he took. Minerva crawls on top of Terry who is stirring, she whispers something in his ear before LICKING HIS FACE! A wicked smile Minerva brandishes before she rolls out of the ring, slowly backtracking, glaring at Terry.)
James Peters: This woman is sick. She came out and got involved in a match that Terry Chambers was ready to possibly once again win and this time, he allowed her distraction to cost him the match.
Rich Russillo: Hit the nail on the head, let the distraction cause him to lose as he could have dropped Drake in the T-5 but he paused and look at him now. Minerva has a huge tag team match later with Myles, but she decided to make it be known that she is always watching and how about that lick? A message to Terry.
Persephone: The Lick of Death, the mafia does that before they kill you.
Rich Russillo: How do you…. Never mind.
(Terry slowly turns to his side, glaring at Minerva who licks her lips slowly backing off from the seething Terry Chambers.)
(Voltage fades to the backstage area, but for a few moments it’s not showing anyone in particular. Eventually the camera moves down though, and that’s when Ahren Fournier’s own pet cat Jennipurr is seen. It looks like she’s moved away from Ahren’s side, as instead of being in her own small cat palace she’s roaming the hallways backstage in the World 1 Theatre. For a while Jennipurr just walks around the hallways, passing other Elitists along the way who just watch on, confused why she’s walking around by herself. Jennipurr looks around at the doors of each area, but eventually she notices that she’s reached SOSA Henderson’s lockerroom… And the door is open.)
(As Jennipurr peeks in the room, the only person in there is SOSA’s Uncle Tony. He’s sitting down, just on his phone, allowing Jennipurr to slowly enter the room. Soon enough though SOSA notices the door beginning to open up more, and as soon as he realizes why the door is opening a look of fear grows on his face.)
Tony Henderson: Ayo what the fuck!? Uh, you good?
(Tony immediately stands back up, very slightly backing away from Jennipurr.)
Tony Henderson: Yo, the fuck you doin’ here? I think you in the wrong place!
(Jennipurr stays put, and as she finally begins to walk closer she notices Tony back up even more.)
Tony Henderson: You better get ya ass outta here. I don’t fuck with no cats.
(Jennipurr continues very slowly walking towards Tony before stopping in front of him. She stays quiet for a bit just looking up at him, until…)
Tony Henderson: OH FUCK NO!
(Tony Henderson jumps onto the bench in the locker room as Jennipurr begins hissing at him. She’s clearly noticed that Tony doesn’t like cats, so she continues hissing at Tony as Tony tries to get as far away from her as possible.)
Tony Henderson: WHAT’S GOOD WITH YOU!? GET THE FUCK OUT!! GET OUT!! FUCK’S WRONG WITH THIS CAT!?
(Jennipurr jumps up onto the bench and continues hissing and trying to claw at Tony, until SOSA Henderson runs into the room. He was able to hear Tony’s voice from outside in the hallway and ran over as quick as he could. As he gets to the room, he’s in complete disbelief at what he sees. Tony is in complete fear as Jennipurr continues swiping at him. After a huge facepalm, SOSA walks right over to the two.)
SOSA Henderson: Nah.. Fuck this shit.
(SOSA grabs Jennipurr by the scruff of the neck, pulling her away from Tony, causing Jennipurr to freak out.)
SOSA Henderson: OW, THE FUCK!?
(It turns out Jennipurr scratched SOSA as hard as she could, and immediately SOSA throws her towards the doorway. Luckily, Ahren Fournier was already in the area and he arrived just in time, catching Jennipurr before any harm could be done to her. Despite Jennipurr not being hurt or anything though, Ahren’s clearly shocked that SOSA would even do such a thing. He cuddled Jennipurr and calms her down before looking at SOSA and Tony, seemingly pissed off.)
Ahren Fournier: UM… WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!? I can’t believe I caught you two abusing my dear Jennipurr, how could you!?
SOSA & Tony: :skip:
SOSA Henderson: The fuck you mean!? Are you blind!? I’m fucking bleeding ‘cause that stupid bitch scratched me and tried to kill my Uncle Tony! The fuck’s wrong with her? Dumbass cat clearly still ain’t trained. Why you even letting her run around whenever she wants anyway?
Ahren Fournier: :picard: Excuse me!? Not trained!? How dare you!? Why are you two accusing Jennipurr of such things!? First you attack her, now you’re lying about her and disrespecting her! Shame on you two! I thought you guys were adults but I guess not. You two should know better than to act like such children. I guess you can’t expect anything from trash Soda Henderson. Do you know who you’re talking about here? Jennipurr is no ordinary cat! She is the perfect cat daughter, she’d never do such a thing! Jennippurr wouldn’t hurt a fly. Clearly you two wanted to harm her and that’s unforgivable.
SOSA & Tony: :skip: !!!!!
Tony Henderson: Bro, you are so fucked and far removed from reality. You got fuckin’ problems bro.
Ahren Fournier: Whatever. There you go Jennipurr, you’re safe now.
(Ahren sets Jennipurr down and pets her, allowing her to take her leave as she quickly exits the locker room. As soon as Ahren gets back up though, SOSA Henderson attacks him! SOSA sends Ahren into the wall, and immediately begins laying into him with multiple punches. Ahren soon begins to fight back, punching at SOSA and even turning him around, making SOSA the one now on the wall. The two continue fighting back and forth, until SOSA grabs Ahren and sends him across a table, causing all of the items on the table to be spilled.)
(Ahren slides off of the table back to his feet, but SOSA jumps right over the table in pursuit of Ahren. SOSA hits Ahren with a forearm, then goes to send him into some of the lockers, before Ahren turns it around, causing SOSA to be the one that goes into the lockers. As Ahren approaches SOSA, SOSA hits Ahren with a knee to the midsection and pushes him away. Ahren quickly grabs a steel chair though, and as SOSA goes towards him Ahren throws it at his face. SOSA stumbles back, and Ahren quickly picks up the chair before swinging it at SOSA!)
(SOSA manages to avoid the chair shot though, and that causes Ahren to hit SOSA’s Uncle Tony in his injured leg with the chair! Tony quickly drops down from the bench, holding his leg in pain, and just as SOSA notices, Ahren goes and hits him in the back with the chair. Ahren continues slamming the chair onto SOSA’s back, before finally grabbing SOSA and sending him into Tony, who was seated on the bench still holding his leg. With the two men down, Ahren finally puts down the steel chair.)
Ahren Fournier: Don’t ever mess with Jennipurr again!
(As Ahren walks out of SOSA’s locker room and closes the door behind him, SOSA is holding his stomach in pain while Tony is holding his leg. Both men are on the floor, still hurt from Ahren’s attack on SOSA and accidental chair shot to Tony. The lockerroom is a mess now, and the two men are in even worse shape. As the two men stay down on the floor in pain, Voltage begins to fade away from the backstage area.)
(As Voltage fades back to ringside, ‘Self-Help Tape’ by Moses Sumney plays through the speakers as the virtual crowd gives a positive cheer for the Voltage commissioner. Captain Charisma comes out with a smile on his face, looking on the sea of virtual faces surrounding him.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME… THE COMMISSIONER OF VOLTAGE… CAPTAIN CHARISMA!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: The Voltage commissioner is going to give us a moment of his time to talk about Wicked Games. There’s a rumor on the street that there’s a couple of announcements about Wicked Games that he wants to announce to everyone! He says that everyone is going to like it.
Persephone: It better be quick and good. This entire show has been a waste of my time. 🥱
Rich Russillo: I like quick and good too. :mjlit:
Persephone: I’m just going to ignore you.
(The camera pans to Captain Charisma already in the ring as the virtual crowd is showing him with love and adoration. His entrance music dies down as Captain Charisma has a microphone in his hands.)
Captain Charisma: What’s up Voltage fans?
(The virtual crowd pops.)
Captain Charisma: I can feel the excitement in the air tonight. It’s been such a fantastic show for all of us tonight. It just adds onto the anticipation that all of us are having for Wicked Games. We got ourselves a nice ten match card. For those that are running in at the moment, why don’t we run down the card?
(The match card for The Realm versus Parental Advisory appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: The Unified Tag Team Championships will be defended for the first time since Territorial Invasion as the newly crowned champions, The Realm take on Parental Advisory, who won a number one contender’s match at Territorial Invasion. It’s going to be a wonderful display of tag team wrestling and it’s going to blow the entire roof out of this place.
(The match card for Ms. Extreme versus Shane Gates appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: Whatever Ms. Extreme wants, Ms. Extreme gets as she FINALLY gets her Halloween themed match as she takes on Shane Gates in a Graveyard Match. These two have been at each other’s throats for the past few weeks and this match will finally settle things between the two of them.
(The match card for Kensingten Calhoun Astor versus Candice Blair appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: A rivalry started back at Territorial Invasion with a “Country Cooking” segment and it ended with Kensingten wearing her own food. Over the past few weeks, things have gotten heated between the two women, but they will resolve their issues inside the ring at Wicked Games.
(The match card for Terry Chambers versus Minerva appear on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: These two went from being allies and representing Voltage in the Brand Warfare Match. These two faced off with Ahren Fournier in a triple threat match to find out who would face SOSA Henderson at War Games. It can be debated that Terry costed Minerva a chance at the EAW Championship, but it’s up to you for interpretation. As of an article from Fight Grid posted earlier this week, these two will face off in an interesting match up that will be enough to intrigue any EAW fan!
(The match card for Malcolm Jones versus Darcy May Morgan appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: Man, isn’t this an interesting match? It’s considered as one of the dream matches that you didn’t know that you want, but it’s what everyone needs in their life. These two went from being teammates at War Games to not being able to be in the same room as each other. These two will end up facing each other in a star-studded match up. Not much needs to be said about this, but this is a match that you won’t wanna miss.
(The match card for Veena Adams versus Kasey Kaos appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: After Mr. DEDEDE stripped Sarah Price of the Specialists Championship, the Dynasty brand hosted the eight woman Specialists Tournament, which featured some of the best female Elitists in this company. Dynasty’s own Veena Adams and Voltage’s own Kasey Kaos will face off with the Specialists Championship on the line. Honestly, if you wanna see who the Specialists Championship will be going forward, you need to watch Wicked Games to see how this much unfolds, but I’ll be looking forward to see what Kasey does to Veena in that match. :mjgrin:
(The match card for Sienna Jade versus Myles appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: The National Elite Championship will be on the line as Sienna Jade puts the title on the line against Myles. With a little persuasion from Minerva on him going after the National Elite Championship, Myles attacked Sienna during one of her interviews, laying his claim on the title. Sienna would love nothing more than to keep that title in her hands while Myles is going to do everything he can to take the title off of her. It’s just going to be interesting to see what happens in this match!
(The match card for TLA versus Drake King appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: This match is not for one who is easily nauseous. If you hate blood and gore — which is most likely none of you Voltage peeps, this match is not for you. Turn off the television and put on something wholesome because this match isn’t going to be wholesome whatsoever. If you say the last installments of Barbed Wire Massacre, you should know how this match goes down, but TLA and Drake King will not leave this match the same person.
(The match card for SOSA Henderson versus Ahren Fournier appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: We have our main event for the EAW Champion as the newly crowned champion, SOSA Henderson puts his title on the line against a man, who has been on a role since Pain for Pride, Ahren Fournier. Honestly, this is an interesting match up as both of them are not going to shy away from the microphone and from the trash talking in the ring. It’s going to be a fun one to watch. But, let’s segue to something else…
(The match card for Azrael versus Lisa Wren versus Donavan Duke appears on the titantron.)
Captain Charisma: Last week, this match was announced to being a triple threat match. It’s one of the matches that. I’m very excited about these three to have such unlimited potential and what’s so great about Voltage is that we’re giving them a platform to shine and prove that the eyes should be on one of them. Lisa Wren and Donavan Duke are more than looking to get their hands on Azrael for his attacks on both of them. This triple threat helps them get that revenge. Yes, there’s nothing wrong with witnessing a triple threat match against some of Voltage’s rising stars, but it’s not enough. There needs to be more of a reason than these three wanting to get revenge on one another. That’s why I am looking forward to rewarding the winner of this triple threat match. The winner of this match will earn themselves a future opportunity at the New Breed Championship!
(The virtual crowd cheers.)
Captain Charisma: Best of luck to those three! I think that this is an amazing match card and it’s amazing that this show is on Halloween. It’s rare that an FPV falls on Halloween and it’s something that we’re going to take advantage of. I’ve been watching Ms. Extreme’s promos about how she’s been wanting a Halloween themed match, but how about we take it up a notch? How about all ten matches on this card are HALLOWEEN THEMED???
(The virtual crowd seems intrigued as Captain Charisma continues.)
Captain Charisma: In addition to Barbed Wire Massacre and the Graveyard Match, EVERY match is going to be ANYTHING GOES!!!!
(The virtual crowd pops. If there is anything that the Voltage fans love, it’s violence and they are looking forward to the potential violence that this show has to offer.)
Captain Charisma: I knew that all of you would love that and I am looking forward to seeing the Voltage Elitists throw down and go hard as they always do —
???: There’s no doubt that I am going to throw down like I always do.
(Lisa Wren comes out with a microphone in her hands. The virtual crowd gives her a mixed reception, but Lisa doesn’t pay much attention to them. She’s more than focused to get her point across.)
Lisa Wren: I’m more than over staying in the back and letting all of these hoes get their moment in the spotlight. They’re all the same to me. Basic, white blonde bitches with little to no personality that EAW just loves to shove down our throats. Nah, I think this segment needs a little more flavor.
(Lisa Wren enters the ring and shoos Captain Charisma to the side as he has an amused facial expression.)
Lisa Wren: CC, I am going to need you to step aside. I gotta few things that I need to get off my chest. Azrael, I know you can hear me from whatever hole you’re watching this show from. You thought that you were gonna keep a woman like me down? Hell no, it’s difficult to keep me down. You thought that I was going to be your punching bag? You thought that you were going to send a message at the expense of me? You didn’t expect me to be out, trying to get some revenge after you sent me to the hospital? I did nothing to deserve the attack from you. A woman like myself can’t celebrate her victory without getting her ass beat by an ugly motherfucker like yourself. They cannot stand to see a black woman, get any fraction of success in this company. There’s always gotta be someone that manages to keep them down as much as possible. Azrael, I don’t care if you’re mad about how Territorial Invasion went for you. Maybe, you should have sucked a little less, if you wanted to win the match. While I’m racking up wins and building myself to be someone that people wanna listen to. I cannot wait to have a voice one day that goes to the higher-ups and resurrects Empire and puts all the women in this company in one place.
Lisa Wren: As for Donovan Duke, he tried to play white knight with me, but do I look like someone that needs someone to come to her rescue? Hell no. Despite finding myself in the hospital, I was still going to get my revenge somehow and that will happen at Wicked Games. He should have just sat there and minded his own business because look at him now? He ended up getting his ass beat. It was something that he could have prevented for himself, but these men are so anxious about being the hero to save the damsel in distress, but it’s 2020. Women are taking the initiative of being their own superhero. Women are taking the step to prove that they are strong and independent and don’t need any men to save the day for them. Donovan looked quite pathetic, but at least, he got himself a match at Wicked Games after it. I’m not expecting him to avenge me, but I am looking to avenge myself. Besides, those flowers were hideous.
Lisa Wren: I’m sick of being the punchbag for everyone. That ends now. At Wicked Games, I am going to end the monster and the dirty white man and take the New Breed contendership for myself. Periodt.
(Lisa Wren shoves her microphone to Captain Charisma and exits the ring. CC looks more than amused by Lisa saying her words and storming off.)
James Peters: That was quite interesting. Lisa Wren is looking to get herself a shot at the New Breed Championship.
Persephone: I’m glad that this segment is over.
(Commercial for Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s “Country Cookin” series which will now be premiering on Netflix. Please watch it so it doesn’t get taken off.)
(‘Rage'(Instrumental) by Rico Nasty echoes throughout the arena as the superstar Lisa Wren is entering first in this tag match. Everyone is hyped, especially the commentators and the ring announcer is ready to start her introductions.)
Bella Braxton: This tag team match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!! Introducing first, from British Columbia, Canada! Weighing in at 140 pounds, LISA WREN!!!!!
Persephone: Hey look, the only person in the world to experience racism.
Rich Russillo: What?
James Peters: Just pretend that you’ve never heard that. Look, it’s Lisa Wren!
Persephone: I don’t know if I’m excited for a match with this lady right here. Not because of the colour of her skin.
Rich Russillo: Persephone, why do you need to specify your description on Lisa Wren?
Persephone: I just don’t want to see her call me out in her next promos. I wonder what that will sound like.
James Peters: You are being too harsh. She doesn’t push that narrative anymore, she is now having her eyes on Azrael and Shane Gates. Just like how we literally have rivals teaming up together tonight.
Persephone: And I’m still not excited at all.
(‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence starts playing after Lisa Wren’s theme faded out. Here comes the Natural Born Killer, Shane Gates. Training for his match against Ms. Extreme at Wicked Games, he must put out a great performance to prove that he is ready.)
Bella Braxton: And her tag team partner, making his way to the ring…. From Huntington Beach, California, weighing in at 213 pounds, he is the Natural Born Killer…. SHANE GATES!!!!!!
James Peters: You see, that man is serious with his promises. At Wicked Games, he is going to face Ms. Extreme in a match that’ll surely be memorable, I introduce you to the Natural Born Killer, Shane Gates!
Rich Russillo: A competitor with a very huge potential, there is a possibility of him getting the victory for his team tonight so we are going to find out.
Persephone: He is going to carry that jobber over there.
James Peters: She might prove you wrong tonight, Persephone. You better watch out!
Persephone: This is the go-home show before Wicked Games. This match could either suck so bad or be surprisingly good.
Rich Russillo: Like we always said, we’ll see.
(As Shane Gates and Lisa Wren are in the ring, ready to perform, ‘Hell on Heels’ by Pistol Annies’ starts playing. It’s time for their opponents. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor came out with a very elegant attire as she is here to kick some ass and take some names.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponent…. From Savannah, Georgia. Weighing in at 143 pounds, she is The Steel Magnolia of Elite Answers Wrestling, KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR!!!!!!
James Peters: Known for her classy attitude, she is also known as The First Lady. Tonight, she is going to be involved with her rival but also, she is going to tag with her rival. That is pretty interesting if you ask me.
Rich Russillo: She isn’t here just to be here, she isn’t an eye candy and instead, she is a legit wrestler and she is here to compete and prove everyone wrong!
Persephone: Ehhh, maybe.
James Peters: I think even she will have a reason to reverse your statement. She will make you say yes, she is indeed a big star.
Rich Russillo: I really can’t wait to see how well she is going to fight tonight, let’s see her opponent since this combination is interesting!
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor doesn’t want to go to the ring just yet. ‘Diva’ by Beyoncè starts playing as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor looks annoyed. Her opponent at Wicked Games, Candice Blair appeared and they walked to the ring together. Even as opponents, they must work together this time.)
Bella Braxton: And her tag partner… from San Francisco, California. Weighing in at 126 pounds, she is The Hot Commodity, CANDICE BLAIR!!!!
James Peters: Now, her opponent at Wicked Games just entered. Do you think that they can work together as a team?
Rich Russillo: I highly doubt it.
Persephone: It’s literally two wrestlers that are facing each other at the next FPV. How can they work together?
James Peters: You are definitely underestimating them.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: The match is starting off with Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and Lisa Wren, two wrestlers that definitely had history with each other, they have faced each other multiple time in the ring, so I’m excited to see how this g-
Rich Russillo: Oh. Nevermind.
James Peters: Starting off with Shane Gates for now, it looks like Lisa Wren doesn’t want to fight Kensingten Calhoun-Astor. Shane Gates with a quick lockup to Kensingten. Obviously, Kensingten can avoid that by giving some punches to his gut! Kensingten now with a lockup of her own, Shane Gates pushed her to the ropes, Kensingten ran to the ropes, Clothesline! Kip up from Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and a Dropkick is done, sending Gates to the turnbuckle! Gates bounced from the corner and a Snap Suplex was done!
Rich Russillo: She is taunting Lisa Wren, talking trash as if she already won the match. Lisa is also not giving up, telling Kensingten Calhoun-Astor that she can’t touch her. Kensingten with a fierce look, OH SHANE GATES WITH A ROLLUP! 1, 2! KICKOUT BY KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR! KENSINGTEN CHARGED TO SHANE GATES BUT GATES COUNTERED AND SENT HER TO THE ROPES, SHE RAN, BIG BOOT TO HER FACE!
James Peters: He quickly got a hold of her head and another headlock was done. Gates with some elbows to her head and he is going for it, Snap DDT! Kensingten Calhoun-Astor landed on her head. Shane Gates grabbed her and he got her up again, she was thrown to the ropes, Japanese Arm Drag, countered by a Hurricanrana from Kensingten Calhoun-Astor!
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates is up again and Kensingten with a Suplex attempt, Gates escaped and Kensingten is thrown to the ropes again, HOWEVER, KENSINGTEN WITH A HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN, SENDING SHANE GATES LYING ON THE RING!
James Peters: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor grabs him and throws him to the corner, Stingers Splash! She throws him to the other side, another Stingers Splash!!!! She looks at Lisa Wren as Lisa is still talking trash! They argued for a little bit! Lisa still making fun of Kensingten, Kensingten told her that this is the time for a murder to take place, she throws Gates to Wren, that counted as a tag?!!!! The referee saw it and agreed, it was!
Persephone: How can that be legal after all?
Rich Russillo: We can never understand a referee’s book for rules. This is pretty unpredictable but we should accept it. Lisa Wren is lying outside after that impact! She is grabbing her back right now, while Shane Gates is trying to get to the steps, Kensingten isn’t waiting any longer! She went outside of the ring and she quickly did a Running Senton to Lisa Wren!
James Peters: Lisa Wren is thrown back into the ring. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is in position, ready for a Moonsault! She went with it and she landed perfectly, HOWEVER, CANDICE BLAIR MADE A TAG!
Rich Russillo: Candice Blair went to pin Lisa Wren, trying to have all the credits for herself!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!! THR-
James Peters: Selfishness gave you no success, am I right, Blair? Blair grabs Lisa but Lisa with a devastating Jawbreaker, causing her to focus more on that, Lisa Wren with 3 straight elbows to the face of Candice Blair as she is seen begging for help. Lisa Wren with the Front Chancery, thrown by Candice Blair to the ropes, Lisa Wren with a Big Boot attempt that missed and Candice Blair with an Enzuigiri attempt got countered as she fell flat into the ring! Lisa Wren quickly got her up again, throws her to the ropes, CANDICE BLAIR WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL ARMDRAG, SENDING LISA WREN OUT BUT SHE STILL STANDS ON HER OWN TWO FEET, SHE RAN TO BLAIR BUT BLAIR CAUGHT HER WITH A SLING BLADE!!!! SHANE GATES QUICKLY TAGGED HIMSELF IN!
Rich Russillo: He is probably trying to save Lisa Wren’s face as her reputation might be dropping after that embarrassing beatdown! They are having a staredown and they are ready circling around the ring, the lockup! Blair got Gates to the turnbuckle, a chop to his chest! However, Shane Gates countered with a chop that sended Blair down! Shane Gates grabbed her and he went with a headlock that was countered by a wrist lock from The Hot Commodity! She isn’t wasting any time, Russian Leg Sweep! She is going crazy right now. She quickly went to the top rope, posing in front of the virtual crowd as they are making her surf in boos. SHANE GATES IS UP, METEORA!!!!!!!! WAIT, KENSINGTEN TAGS HERSELF IN!!!!
James Peters: THAT WAS PRETTY EGOTISTICAL OF HER!
Persephone: It’s called a strategy. I dig it.
James Peters: She is trying to inflict even more damage to Shane Gates’s hands, kicking it unstoppably. The referee wants to check on him but Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is telling him to back off. Kensingten got Shane Gates, he is thrown to the turnbuckle. Meanwhile, Lisa Wren is seen getting up, Kensingten saw an opportunity. Kensingten asked Shane Gates to tag Lisa Wren in but Lisa Wren jumped out of the ring?!!!! She didn’t give up for her team, though! She just wants to avoid getting tagged for now.
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates is just shaking his head right now, telling Kensingten Calhoun-Astor to just beat him up, haha! He literally knows that this team is going to lose tonight. Wait….. Gates is whispering something to Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s ears. Sounds like there is a plan. Kensingten went with a slap and then she went to Candice Blair and she told her about the plan! Candice doesn’t agree and they both have an argument again! So much for their match at Wicked Games!
James Peters: They are just screaming at each other right now, they don’t have teamwork. No chemistry. No nothing! They are arguing all the time, which is pretty stupid since this is a tag team match.
Persephone: They are not fighting as a tag team at Wicked Games. That is why they’re arguing. Oho, Shane Gates appeared behind them! Shane Gates with a sudden elbow to the back of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s head!!!! She gave him a threatening and deadly look, she threw him out and she tagged Candice Blair in!
Rich Russillo: She is chasing Lisa Wren outside of the ring! This is some Tom & Jerry action shown by both competitors. I love it! Meanwhile, Candice Blair lazily got down and she is going after the tired Shane Gates, as she grabs Shane Gates, Lisa Wren is near, KENSINGTEN WITH A SPEAR BUT LISA ESCAPED, KENSINGTEN ACCIDENTALLY DEMOLISHED HER OWN TAG TEAM PARTNER! She looked at Candice Blair and she smacked her head. That was stupid, Lisa Wren grabs Kensingten and she quickly throws her to the steps! Lisa Wren throws Shane Gates back into the ring as Candice Blair is still unconscious! The referee starts counting!
James Peters: Lisa Wren is beating her up with some elbows, Lisa grabs her by the head and she locks The Hot Commodity in a headlock! Candice Blair is struggling outside of the ring but here comes Kensingten with a dropkick sending Lisa Wren down and the lock is released! Kensingten throws Candice Blair back into the ring and Shane Gates is using the turnbuckle to help him stand! Candice Blair is trying to get up right now, but Shane Gates with some kicks to her head!!!! Shane Gates grabbed her, HE IS BUILDING IT, SHINING WIZARD, BULLET2HEAD!!!!! He is feeling it, he poses, but WHAT HAPPENED?!!!!! KENSINGTEN THROWS LISA WREN UP TO THE RING AND SHE HITS THE BACK OF SHANE GATES, LISA WREN IS IN THE MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor quickly got up to the ring and she went to grab the unconscious Candice Blair, a tag was made!
James Peters: Lisa Wren outside, tired and she can’t even move right now! Shane Gates is going outside on his accord with the ropes to assist him standing up. Lisa Wren is trying to get up, KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!!! Kensingten quickly got her back in the ring again. Kensingten quickly locked Lisa Wren with a Full Nelson, Lisa escaped, an elbow to Kensingten! Lisa throws her to the ropes, Lisa with a Pop-Up Powerb- KENSINGTEN GOT HER LOCKED IN “SOMETHING TO CRY ABOUT”!!!!! LISA WREN IS STRUGGLING, SHANE GATES WANTS TO ENTER BUT CANDICE BLAIR QUICKLY GRABS HIS LEGS AND THROWS HIM OUT AGAIN! LISA WREN CAN’T ESCAPE, SHE CAN’T REACH THE ROPES, SHE TAPPED OUT!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners… THE TEAM OF CANDICE BLAIR AND KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR!!!!!
Persephone: Like I said, Lisa Wren lost again.
James Peters: That is pretty unfortunate for someone as talented as her.
Persephone: Maybe she should reconsider her own talents. I mean, Shane Gates did carry her like I said he would. She was the one tapping out.
James Peters: Shane Gates probably can get away with the fact that he looked very strong tonight, maybe that could show something to Ms. Extreme. For Lisa Wren, she should try way harder.
Rich Russillo: Hmmm, something feels off. Maybe Azrael got to her mind too much to the point where she forgot to focus on the tag team match. However, good stuff from both teams, congrats to Kensingten and Candice for winn- oh what is going on right now?
(As the referee tried to raise the hands of both competitors, Kensingten politely asked him to not do it and she got her eyes focused on her opponent at Wicked Games, Candice Blair. They both put their foot on top of Lisa Wren and smiled while Shane Gates is seen recovering, and Voltage went to commercials.)
(Commercial for Ms. Extreme’s new trick or treating video game coming out, where the objective is to travel to each house and ask for Halloween themed matches. Collect as many matches as you can, in stores soon!)
(Inside the ring, Bella Braxton stands ready to announce the next match-up!)
Bella Braxton: The following singles match is scheduled for-
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea begins to play into the World 1 Theatre, and with the Cash in the Vault briefcase in hand, Darcy comes parading out from the back ready to go!)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Kent, United Kingdom… weighing in at 135 pounds… she is Miss Cash in the Vault… DARCY MAY MORGAN!!
James Peters: Darcy finds herself in an interesting situation coming up at Wicked Games, as she takes on War Games teammate, Malcolm Jones! Malcolm and Darcy are two in-your-face competitors, who truly hold nothing back, but in a twist tonight, we get to see her take on the very man who had his EAW World Title reign ended by Malcolm!
Rich Russillo: Both Ahren and Darcy are out to make their claims to the top spots they’ve got their sights set on, and tonight, could very well be the steps in the right direction that could show they’re just that much closer! Ahren’s got his World Title shot to reclaim that very title, and Darcy has what will be one of her most challenging matches ever ahead of her – I wouldn’t want to miss a thing!
(Darcy enters the ring, posing with her briefcase for a moment before “Starboy” by The Weeknd begins to take over, while Ahren comes out onto the stage with an arrogant aura about him that’s undeniable.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent, from. Pawtucket, Rhode Island… weighing in at 210 pounds…. AHREN FOURNIER!!!
Rich Russillo: Ahren has been in the process of getting back into World Championship contention for quite some time, and now with his shot at Wicked Games, it’s going to be something that he won’t want to waste!
James Peters: SOSA won’t make getting that championship from him easy, especially after their meeting at Bloodsport, but Ahren can’t be counted out himself either! Tonight, taking on someone as crafty as Darcy, Ahren could very well prove that he can be just as ready to take on someone who’s known for the same thing himself come Wicked Games!
(Ahren makes his way into the ring, demanding that Darcy stays out of his spotlight despite her already being well out of the way as he takes a stance in the middle of the ring. Eventually, the referee calls for them to get set, as he calls for the bell!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Darcy and Ahren go circling the ring with Ahren taunting Darcy across the mat, Darcy rolling her eyes unimpressed before they go to lock up! BUT AHREN DUCKS AROUND BEHIND DARCY AND HE TAKES HER DOWN WITH A BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX RIGHT FROM THE START!
James Peters: AHREN BRINGING DARCY UP TO HER FEET AND LAUNCHING HER ACROSS THE RING WITH A RELEASE BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Darcy ends up in the corner and pulling herself up with the use of the ropes- BUT HERE COMES AHREN, WHO BARRELS INTO THE CORNER CONNECTING WITH A FOREARM SMASH!
Rich Russillo: THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION NOW GETTING A HOLD OF DARCY AND LOOKING TO RUN OUT THE CORNER FOR A BULLDOG- NO! DARCY SHOVES HIM OFF AND AWAY JUST IN TIME, AND FOURNIER TURNS AROUND ONLY TO BE LIFTED OFF HIS FEET AND PLANTED WITH A SITOUT SPINEBUSTER!
James Peters: Darcy takes a moment to check her nose for blood, shaking her head after that opening attack from Ahren and hoping to shrug it off, but obviously not expecting that right out the gate!
Persephone: Rex would’ve had that better anticipated, and he wouldn’t allow Darcy to be in control of things like she is now by taking Ahren overhead with that snap suplex. Now she’s rolling over to end up on top of him, and she comes down with a knee drop right to his face; anything is an improvement!
James Peters: Darcy looks to make an early example out of the former World Champion now as she quickly works to bring him to a vertical base, but bashing his head repeatedly with forearm clubs! Ahren throws his arms up to block the next one, but Darcy reaches forward and rakes his eye before she swiftly ends up taking him off his feet with a standing dropkick that sends him into the corner, and she follows in with a cannonball senton!
Rich Russillo: Miss Cash in the Vault hurls all her weight into that with as much force as she can, and Darcy aims to stay in control by grabbing one of his legs and stepping out over the bottom rope with it, and she jumps off to snap it against the rope!
James Peters: Ahren yelps while he tries to push himself away from the ropes, rolling back toward the middle of the ring as he clutches at his leg; Darcy forcing it against the rope like that could mean trouble for the contender to SOSA’s championship! Darcy quickly slides back into the ring, stomping at Ahren’s knee and calf; he can’t be a threat if he can’t even walk!
Rich Russillo: The former Specialists Champion coming down on the joint with an elbow drop, following it up with another! Darcy seems determined to force Ahren to finish this match on one leg as she comes up off the mat with a hold still on the ankle, and transitions into a heel hook!
Persephone: He’s literally going to end up walking into Wicked Games crippled and honestly, I love it! It’s not like him or SOSA should be competing for Rex’s championship at all anyway! Ahren shouts out in pain while trying to drag himself as well as Darcy to the ropes; while I’d love to see him tap out, he also deserves to suffer for thinking he has any claim to that title when Rex hasn’t even got a rematch!
James Peters: It’s taking some time but Ahren is surely making his way there while Darcy’s got this submission locked in tight; I don’t know how much damage could possibly be done at this point but Ahren’s determined to fight through this! Ahren punches at Darcy’s legs in an effort to loosen her hold but Darcy isn’t budging!
Rich Russillo: Ahren leans back and pushes off the mat again, eyeing the ropes as he reaches out for them with his arms stretched out to try to get a hold of them! And it’s with one final surge toward the ropes, Ahren is able to get his hands on the bottom rope! Darcy holds on up until the count of four before letting go and waves off the referee, who warns her about paying attention to the five-count, and she goes right for Ahren-
James Peters: BUT AHREN JUST KICKED DARCY IN THE GUT AS SHE REACHED DOWN TO GRAB HIM AND SENT HER OUT THE RING BY HER HAIR! The referee makes the attempt to warn Fournier about staying off the hair but it’s like talking to a wall as Ahren is paying him absolutely no attention whatsoever as he slips out under the bottom rope to go after Darcy!
Persephone: Ahren kicks her in the face while still seated on the apron as she tried to get up from the floor, and really, she deserves it for letting him get away like that. He brings her up from the floor by her hair and tosses her through the open area at ringside, and she smacks the ground with a thud that Ahren is all too proud of.
James Peters: Darcy’s already pulling herself up with the ring apron at the corner of the ring but she doesn’t see Ahren coming- AND AHREN TAKES HER HEAD AND SLAMS IT RIGHT INTO THE RING POST! AHREN DOING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN BEFORE PULLING HER AWAY AND SWINGING HER BY HER HAIR TO LAUNCH HER INTO THE BARRICADE!
Rich Russillo: DARCY DROPS LIKE DEAD WEIGHT TO THE GROUND IMMEDIATELY AFTER AND AHREN RUSHES FORWARD AS QUICK AS HE CAN, USING HIS GOOD KNEE TO COLLIDE WITH DARCY’S HEAD AGAINST THE BARRIER! DARCY CRUMPLES DOWN AGAIN AS THAT BARRICADE HAS NO GIVE WHATSOEVER; DARCY’S HEAD TAKES THE FULL BRUNT OF THAT!
James Peters: Ahren drags her up and rolls her into the ring, Fournier coming in after and he shouts for the referee to make the count as he grabs one of her legs to make the first cover of the match!
James Peters: Darcy kicks out, making it clear to Ahren, and no doubt Malcolm as well, that she’ll fight through whatever’s coming her way! Darcy may be considered to be a lot of things by her contemporaries, but she’s most definitely a tough competitor!
Rich Russillo: But look at Ahren in the ring, as he slaps her repeatedly over the top of her head, showing her absolutely no respect while yelling at her for attacking his face earlier; he won’t be able to be considered the Face of Voltage if he won’t be able to even show his own!
Persephone: Imagine living in a world where we’re legitimately having people discuss the Face of Voltage as if Rex doesn’t still exist because some ridiculous clown stole Rex’s championship; I fucking hate it here!
James Peters: And Darcy must surely hate the disrespect Ahren’s shown her in these moments, as she tries to swat his hands away while trying to sit up, but Ahren catches her hand- GET FUCKED!!! DARCY SHOUTS AS SHE QUICKLY RIPS HER HAND AWAY FROM AHREN’S GRASP AND HOLDS HER FINGERS CLOSE WHILE INSTINCTIVELY TURNING AWAY, BUT AHREN TAKES ADVANTAGE BY STRIKING WITH A CHOP BLOCK!
Rich Russillo: DARCY GOES DOWN TO A KNEE WHILE STILL CONSOLING HER FINGERS AFTER THAT FINGER BREAKER AND FOURNIER COMES OFF THE ROPES WITH A RUNNING KNEE! DARCY’S STRUCK SO HARD THAT SHE COMES OFF HER KNEE AND AHREN IS QUICK TO STRIKE WITH A FOLLOW-UP SWINGING NECKBREAKER, NOT EVEN GIVING DARCY THE CHANCE TO SIMPLY COLLAPSE TO THE MAT!
James Peters: AHREN STOMPS DOWN ON HER BACK BETWEEN HER SHOULDER BLADES AND KEEPS HIS FOOT PLANTED THERE BEFORE HE REACHES DOWN TO GRAB HER ARM, AND FALLS BACK IN A FLASH TO SNAP HER ARM BACKWARD!
Rich Russillo: Darcy kicks at the mat in pain while clutching her arm toward her chest, but Ahren pries it away and lays it on the mat, pinning her down by stepping on the fingers he’d focused on earlier- AND AHREN COMES DOWN ON THAT ARM WITH A DOUBLE KNEE DROP! DARCY CAN’T DO ANYTHING TO GET AWAY AS AHREN DOESN’T MOVE AND SLAPS HER ACROSS THE FACE!
Persephone: Fuck it, if he breaks her arm then he breaks her arm; at least this will be over! Ahren looks to take things one step further, however, and drags Darcy to the ropes to lift her up into a speedy slingshot suplex that sends Darcy crashing to the mat. And now Ahren is prepared to do us all a favor, as he makes the cover to spare us from this match continuing on!
James Peters: Darcy’s slower to shoot her shoulder up off the mat, as Ahren forces her to kick out with what no doubt is a hurting arm! Dismantling Darcy’s offense appears to be the plan now, now that Ahren has his focus on the arm and he forces up into an arm wringer, twisting on the limb!
Rich Russillo: Darcy tries to push his hand off but it’s no use, as Ahren wrenches even further on her arm; it’s not supposed to twist that way! Darcy spots the distance between herself and the ropes and driver the forearm of her other arm at Ahren’s face, while making her way to the ropes, and grabbing the top rope, Darcy uses it to flip forward as a counter and falling into an arm drag takedown!
James Peters: Ahren rushes to his feet while Darcy is already on hers, charging at Ahren and meeting him in the middle of the ring- FACE ACHE!!! THE BICYCLE KICK SENDS AHREN BACKWARD AND HE FALLS INTO THE ROPES! THE UNEXPECTED MOMENTUM SENDS HIM FORWARD BACK TO DARCY BUT HE DUCKS UNDER HER ATTEMPTED SPINNING HEEL KICK!
Rich Russillo: AHREN RUNS OFF THE NEXT SET OF ROPES AND COMES BACK TO FIND DARCY BOUNCING OUT OF A HANDSTAND OFF THE OPPOSITE ROPES IN FRONT OF HIM, AND IS TOO LATE TO COUNTER HER HANDSPRING ELBOW! DARCY RETURNS AHREN’S SLAP FROM EARLIER WITH ONE OF HER OWN AS SHE WORKS TO BRING HIM TO HIS FEET AND SHE WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER!
James Peters: DARCY RUNS IN AFTER HIM AND HITS A STEP-UP KNEE STRIKE, SNAPPING AHREN’S HEAD BACK AS SHE STRIKES JUST UNDER THE CHIN! BUT DARCY DOESN’T IMMEDIATELY COME BACK DOWN AND INSTEAD GETS HER ARM AROUND FOURNIER’S HEAD, THEN KICKING OFF THE ROPES FOR A TORNADO DDT OUT THE CORNER! DARCY TRUDGING OVER INTO A PIN!
Persephone: Ahren refuses to stay down and quit, which is totally fucked and unfair to me since I certainly didn’t ask for that to happen! People around here are so inconsiderate sometimes, it makes me sick!
James Peters: Darcy has her chance to stay in control now after that onslaught of moves, and just as Ahren starts to shift to make his move to get up, Darcy tosses him with a german suplex! Ahren flops to the mat after crashing on the back of his neck and shoulders, and Darcy sends him out the ring with a baseball slide right to his back!
Rich Russillo: Ahren unceremoniously drops to the outside and Darcy steps out onto the apron anticipating the EAW World Championship challenger- AND DARCY TAKES OFF INTO A HANDSTAND HURRICANRANA OFF THE APRON JUST AS AHREN GETS UP AND TURNS AROUND!
James Peters: BUT AHREN STOPS HIMSELF FROM GETTING TAKEN DOWN, STOPPING DARCY MID-MOVE! AHREN HAULS DARCY UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND STARTS TOWARD THE STEPS BUT DARCY SPOTS THIS OVER HER SHOULDER, AND AFTER A SERIES OF BLOWS TO AHREN’S HEAD, DARCY FALLS BACK INTO A HURRICANRANA TO SEND HIM INTO THE STEPS!
Rich Russillo: AHREN IS THROWN HEAD-FIRST INTO THE STEEL AND SLUMPS OVER AGAINST THE STEPS! Darcy uses the apron to slowly pull herself up and then proceeds to drag Ahren to his feet and into the ring! Darcy grabbing him and spinning him around to lift him up! DARCY HAS HIM ON HER SHOULDERS FOR THE CURTAIN CALL!!!
James Peters: BUT AHREN SLIPS DOWN BEHIND HER AND TRAPS HER ARM! AHREN PULLS HER INTO THE LULLABY! DARCY IS LEFT TO TRY TO REACH FOR THE ROPES WITH HER ARM THAT’S ALREADY SEEN ENOUGH DAMAGE, AND AHREN FALLS BACK TO THE MAT WITH DARCY STUCK IN THE SUBMISSION!
Rich Russillo: DARCY FLAILS AND SHIFTS, TRYING TO KEEP AHREN FROM TRAPPING HER FURTHER! SHE STRETCHES HER LEG OUT FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE BUT SHE’S SIMPLY TOO FAR AWAY TO MAKE IT THERE!
Persephone: If she was smart, she’d just tap out right now! I don’t ask for a lot but it’s the least she could do after what the both of them have put me through already!
James Peters: AHREN TRIES TO KEEP HER FROM GOING ANYWHERE WHILE DARCY CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE! DARCY STOPS MOVING AND TURNS BACK, PERHAPS GIVING IN-
Rich Russillo: NO! DARCY PUSHES BACK ON HER HEELS AND THAT FORCES HER OVER AHREN, PUTTING AHREN’S SHOULDERS ON THE MAT!
James Peters: AHREN QUICKLY SITS UP BUT DARCY MANAGES TO SLIP OUT FROM HIS ARM THAT WAS AROUND HER NECK, AND HE TAKES A BACK ELBOW TO THE FACE!
Rich Russillo: Darcy rips herself away from Ahren with him stunned and she goes to crawl away- AHREN’S BACK ON HIS FEET! HE GRABS DARCY AND PULLS HER UP INTO A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK POWERBOMB- DARCY COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP BUT AHREN LANDS ON HIS FEET!
James Peters: AHREN TURNS BACK AROUND INTO A SPINNING BACK KICK FROM DARCY! AHREN FINDS HIMSELF GETTING LIFTED UP INTO THE AIR AND IN A QUICK TURNAROUND OF EVENTS, DARCY TAKES HIM DOWN WITH THE CURTAIN CALL!!
Rich Russillo: AHREN COLLAPSES TO THE MAT AND DARCY THROWS HERSELF DOWN ONTO FOURNIER IN A HURRY FOR THE COVER!!!
Persephone: You’ve got to be joking me. This shit is fucking ridiculous.
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER KICKS OUT AND DARCY LOOKS STUNNED!!!
Rich Russillo: Darcy starts punching the shit out of Ahren as he’s down, over and over again! Darcy’s looking to go into Wicked Games with as much momentum as possible, and she refuses to let Ahren Fournier derail that! But Ahren isn’t going to let her get away with it that easily, as Ahren plans to go into the same event having made a huge statement of his own!
James Peters: Neither of them has given in so far, I don’t think we’ve gotten to that point just yet! Darcy, almost livid, drags him up to his feet as she looks to go for the Curtain Call again!
Rich Russillo: BUT AHREN TWISTS OUT WITH A HOLD ON THE ARM AND DARCY’S BACK IN THE LULLABY! THEY GO TO THE MAT AGAIN AND THE REFEREE DROPS BESIDE THEM, CHECKING IN ON DARCY, WHO SHOUTS OUT-
James Peters: DARCY PULLS THE REFEREE BY HIS SHIRT RIGHT ONTO THEM TO BREAK IT UP! THE REFEREE FALLS ONTO AHREN, WHO CAN’T SEE ANYTHING NOW, BUT HE KNOWS HE’S GOT NO CHOICE BUT TO LET GO OF DARCY NOW!
Rich Russillo: DARCY IS THE FIRST TO GET TO HER FEET HAVING ESCAPED, AND AHREN FINALLY PUSHES THE REFEREE OFF OF HIM! AHREN GETS UP AND DARCY BOUNDS FORWARD IN A HURRY! FACE ACHE!!!!
James Peters: RIGHT TO THE REFEREE!!! AHREN DUCKED OUT THE WAY AND DARCY STRIKES DOWN THE REFEREE! FROM THE LOOK ON HER FACE, HE CLEARLY WASN’T HER TARGET AT ALL!
Persephone: Now there’s no one to count the falls? This is so fucked up! Imagine forcing me to sit through this, it’s literally Hell on earth; Rex would never do this to me! And now Ahren dropkicks her through the ropes and out the ring from behind while she was distracted, who knows what they’re about to get into now.
Rich Russillo: Darcy crawls to the timekeeper’s area while Ahren is slow to follow out the ring, and Darcy gets her briefcase while Ahren comes up just behind her- AND DARCY SWINGS THE BRIEFCASE BACK!
James Peters: BUT AHREN DUCKS AND TACKLES HER TO THE GROUND! THE BRIEFCASE FALLS OUT OF DARCY’S HANDS AND AHREN COMES DOWN ON HER FACE WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH, NOT LOOKING TO BE A VICTIM OF DARCY’S TACTICS!
Rich Russillo: Ahren finally brings her off the ground aims to send her back in, but he hasn’t spotted the briefcase she picked back up! Ahren climbs up onto the apron and starts up the turnbuckles from the outside, getting all the way up top!
James Peters: Ahren looks to position himself but down on the mat, Darcy’s already started moving and she’s bringing the briefcase with her to the corner! Darcy pulls herself up and manages to avoid a stomp coming down at her head, and pushes one of Ahren’s legs out from under him to send him crashing onto the turnbuckle!
Rich Russillo: Darcy climbs up the turnbuckles, throwing punches at Ahren but he starts fighting back! Whatever Darcy’s got in mind, he’s not going down without a fight, but he’s got to get down from the turnbuckles!
James Peters: Ahren swings and Darcy ducks- DARCY SWINGS THE BRIEFCASE AT AHREN’S HEAD! BUT AHREN SHOVES IT AWAY AND KNOCKS IT OUT DARCY’S HAND, CAUSING IT TO FALL TO THE APRON! DARCY HESITATES FOR A MOMENT THAT’S JUST LONG ENOUGH FOR AHREN TO BE ABLE TO KICK HER IN THE FACE!
Rich Russillo: DARCY STUMBLES BACK AND AHREN PUSHES TO GET BACK UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! BUT DARCY COMES TO MEET HIM THERE, FIGHTING HER WAY BACK UP ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES! AHREN AND DARCY SWING BACK AND FORTH, EXCHANGING BLOWS AS DARCY IS DETERMINED TO GET UP THERE IN THIS HIGH-RISK SITUATION!
James Peters: DARCY MANAGES TO GET TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! AHREN WITH A RIGHT! NOW DARCY! AHREN SEEMS TO HAVE STALLED HER WITH TWO IN SUCCESSION! AHREN GOES TO GRAB HER-
Rich Russillo: TTYN! THE LEFT-HANDED KNOCKOUT PUNCH STRIKES BUT AHREN GRABBED A HOLD OF DARCY AS HE FALLS OVER! AHREN AND DARCY FALL FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND AHREN TAKES DARCY WITH HIM, THE BOTH OF THEM CRASHING ONTO THE APRON WITH THE BACK DARCY’S HEAD COLLIDING WITH HER CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE THAT WAS DROPPED ONTO THE APRON!
James Peters: DARCY FALLS OFF THE APRON AND DROPS TO THE FLOOR, THE BOTH OF THEM SEEM TO BE OUT!
Rich Russillo: And inside the ring the referee has come to, shaking off the effects of the kick he took from Darcy, and finds both competitors out of the ring! Both of them are down, and he shrugs, starting to count!
Referee: (off-mic) ONE!
Persephone: Imagine possibly getting concussed and knocked out because your own plan backfired; I’d call it a kick in the head but Darcy literally plummeted right onto hers :mjlol:
Referee: (off-mic) FOUR!
James Peters: The boos from the virtual crowd can absolutely be heard, as no one wanted to see it come to this! Ahren might be effectively knocked out, and the same could be said for Darcy after that disastrous fall onto the briefcase!
Referee: (off-mic) EIGHT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(There’s nothing but unsatisfied boos from the crowd as both competitors remain down and out at ringside after their fall from the top turnbuckle, neither of them moving!)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, as the result of a double count-out, this match has been ruled a no contest!
(Exiting from the ring, the referee comes down beside both Ahren and Darcy, both of whom are slowly coming to but the referee insists on ringside assistance coming over just to be sure.)
James Peters: Definitely not the outcome anyone would want to see between these two, and once both of them realize what happened, I can’t imagine either of them necessarily being overjoyed either! While it is a shame, this was nothing short of competitive from both of them!
(Following a replay of the TTYN that knocked Ahren off the top turnbuckle and in turn caused him to bring Darcy crashing the back of her head onto the briefcase, it’s on the sight of both Ahren and Darcy being assisted to that Voltage eventually goes to commercial break.)
(Promotional ad for EAW 2k21. Play as your favorite EAW Elitists, in stores now!)
(The camera transitions back to the ring where Bella Braxton stands by ready to introduce the next matchup.)
Bella Braxton: The following tag team contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!…
Virtual crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Never Too Late to Dance’ by DREAMERS blares throughout the World 1 Theatre, and appearing on stage are the current Unified Tag Team Champions, Harper Lee and Sierra Bradford…The Realm.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…this tag team combination weighs in at TWO HUNDRED FIFTY NINE POUNDS… THEY’RE THE CURRENT REIGNING AND DEFENDING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…HARPER LEE, SIERRA BRADFORD…THE REALM!!!
James Peters: For the third week in a row we’ve got the current Unified Tag Team Champions here on Voltage, who are set to make their first title defense at the Wicked Games FPV against Parental Advisory, but last week it would seem Parental Advisory got the better of The Realm.
Rich Russillo: Well, being the champs they’re going to get a lot of extra attention, that’s just the breaks of how it works in a company as competitive as this. They may feel a source of validation for their time put in before becoming champions for the first time together, but now they’re finding that the real work is just beginning!
Persephone: They don’t get my vote. Living losers like these two are the human equivalence of participation awards, which is why they’re holding matching ones to express how second rate they really are!
(The shot shows the Sierra and Harper posing at opposite corners each holding up their Unified Tag Team belt with the positive reaction from the virtual crowd being heard. Then their cheers changed to more mixed reaction as ‘Never Too Late To Dance’ is replaced by ‘Manifest’ by Starset which brings out both Minerva and Myles… Masochist x Manifest.)
Bella Braxton: And introducing their opponents… weighing in at a combined weight of THREE HUNDRED FIFTY THREE POUNDS… THEY’RE A PART OF THIS YEAR’S GRAND PRIX TOURNAMENT…THEY ARE ‘THE GYPSY MOTH’ MINERVA AND ‘THE WARLORD’ MYLES…MASOCHIST X MANIFEST!!!!!
James Peters: Both Minerva and Myles have matches themselves set for Wicked Games. Myles will be challenging for the National Elite Championship, taking on the Champ Sienna Jade. I don’t think anyone can deny the chemistry, that connection that happens to be there with these two since they teamed together on several occasions leading into Territorial Invasion, and then of course in the Brand Warfare match. Myles has always been a fighter and enjoys inflicting pain on others, but with Minerva fighting at his side she definitely adds a certain darker aura to the table that makes this team formidable.
Rich Russillo: I would definitely have to agree with everything you just said. Both Myles and Minerva have previous experience as Unified Tag Team Champions. Let’s not forget, as you stated, Minerva has a match coming up as well at Wicked Games against Terry Chambers after Chambers challenged her after the questionable victory Masochist x Manifest got the week before which eliminated The Corona Hombres from the Grand Prix. Now, despite that, they have a golden chance to send a message to the current tag team champions. Let’s see what they do with this grand opportunity!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: This matchup is now underway. It’s our current Unified Tag Team Champions facing off against the Manifest of Masochist x Manifest, Myles, and Harper Lee of The Realm. It was Harper that said there was nothing that Myles nor Minerva could do to make her confidence waver, admitting that The Realm were still the underdogs who still needed to prove themselves. Now a tie up, and as one would expect to come from this exchange it’s the bigger and stronger Myles that gains the advantage. Myles has Harper in a side headlock and now forces her into the nearby corner and there’s not much Harper can do about it given her size. She does have the quickness advantage in this matchup, but RIGHT NOW SHE’S BEING OVERPOWERED AS MYLES IS STILL FORCING HARPER INTO AN UNCOMFORTABLE SPOT! THE REFEREE REACHES FIVE, BUT AS SOON AS MYLES LETS UP HE GETS A NICE SWIPE ACROSS THE CHEST OF HARPER LEE!
Rich Russillo: OUCH! THAT HAD TO HURT! AND HARPER IS HOLDING HER CHEST WHICH IS ALREADY RED FROM THAT HARD OPEN-HANDED SLAP ACROSS HER CHEST! SHE’S REALLY SMARTING AFTER THAT ONE! YOU THINK THE VIRTUAL AUDIENCE FELT THAT ONE, JAMES!??
James Peters: To be honest, I’m not so sure they didn’t! Hard irish whip by Myles sends Harper Lee against the ropes with great ferocity, and a back elbow to the head just damn near took Harper Lee’s head off! Harper holding her jaw, and who wouldn’t be after that impact! But Myles does not stop there as he brings the dazed Harper Lee back to her feet and then backs up a couple of steps and bounces off the ropes and levels Harper Lee right back down to the canvas with a vicious lariat! And he’s got a smirking smile on his face as he looks down at his fallen for before finally dropping down to his knees to make a half-hearted cover.
Persephone: Wow. He sure didn’t make much of an effort at beating the shit out of her before covering her. Maybe he has a thing for little midgets. What do they call those types of people, midgaphaeliacs?
James Peters: I shutter to guess, Seph, but what I do know is that Myles is now wasting no motion in laying those mounted punches into the head of Harper Lee, really dominating from the opening bell so far. Now Myles finally relents and stands back up and looks over to Minerva who’s anxious for the tag as Harper Lee is trying to crawl away. Myles and Minerva exchange wicked smiles before finally Myles tags in the former Universal Women’s Champion. Sierra Bradford is trying to encourage her partner, but has a great deal of concern on her face as well, especially knowing Minerva isn’t any less forgiving than Myles. She’s probably even more vicious around people she has disdain for!
Rich Russillo: Isn’t that just about anybody!!?? Minerva begins by laying the boots to Harper repeatedly with head and body shots. Harper Lee hasn’t been able to muster any type of an offense so far. She’s a fighter, she’s a champion, but you wouldn’t know it right now with the way she’s being completely manhandled by the Masochist x Manifest! Tagging out is what she should do, Minerva’s got her up and this is probably not going to be good either!
James Peters: You’re definitely right about that. Waistlock from behind by Minerva, she looks like she’s going for a German suplex! Yes she is! Release German suplex! Harper though, somehow she lands on her feet! She’s a bit wobbly but Harper backs up into the ropes! Running missile dropkick that floors Minerva who didn’t have enough time to react! But MINERVA’S QUICKLY BACK UP TO HER FEET BUT HARPER CONTINUES RIGHT FOR MINERVA! A HURRICANRANA BY HARPER LEE THAT TAKES MINERVA DOWN AGAIN! HARPER GETS BACK TO HER FEET AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE SHE DOESN’T WANT MOMENTUM TO GO BACK TO MINERVA SO FAST! MINERVA IS SLOWLY BACK TO HER FEET! NOW SHE’S UP AND HERE COMES HARPER LEE FULL CHARGING AND SHE WRAPS HER ARM GRIP AROUND THE HEAD OF MINERVA AND IS GOING FOR THE SPINNING TORNADO DDT! BUT MINERVA BLOCKED IT! TAG
Rich Russillo: WHOA!!! MINERVA JUST SENT HARPER LEE FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A BACK BODY DROP! OUCH!
Persephone: Yeah, but that dyke just tagged herself in!
James Peters: Indeed, you’re right, Seph. The referee allowed the tag, but Minerva was ready for it because she just leveled Sierra Bradford with a back kick to the midsection of Sierra! Minerva backs up and bounces off the ropes as Sierra is recovering but Sierra reacts in time with a spinebuster that downs ‘The Princess Killer’s, Sierra going for the cover!
Rich Russillo: It’s going to take a hell of a lot more than that to put Minerva away, I’ll tell that much right now. Did you see her three stages of hardcore hell match at Bloodsport?? She’s tough as nails!
James Peters: I’m sure Minerva’s thinking the same thing, clearly a bit surprised that Sierra was able to put her in a pinning predicament. Now both competitors are back to their feet and now circling the ring, you can just hear the buzz from the virtual audience. They like what they are seeing so far between these two unique teams. Finally it’s Minerva that steps up and strikes first with a kick to the midsection of Sierra! She kicks the tights of Sierra, she’s going for a suplex but Sierra is blocking it. Sierra is able to transition into waistlock from behind, but Minerva with a hard back elbow to the head of Sierra. Sierra is holding her head and Minerva now sends a kick to the midsection again, now another, and finally a scissor kick by Minerva! Now Minervatags in Myles and it’s Myles that sends Sierra to the ropes and both Minerva and Myles take Sierra airborne! Double flapjack connects and it’s Myles with the cover!
Rich Russillo: But Sierra with another Kickout! Now Myles decides to keep Sierra grounded with a headlock, a sleeper if you will. She’s struggling to find air but the more she moves around the tougher it’s going to be on her. Now Myles pulls her down on the canvas even more with that sleeper hold still applied, and Harper Lee is on the sideline apron shouting encouragement. Even the virtual audience can be heard trying to get Sierra back into it.
Persephone: They really just need to shut it! I can’t really understand what their importance is in the matches, I mean can we hear them through the monitors? They all sound inaudibly poor, and the quality they add to our product is basically non-existent. Sorry not sorry that the truth hurts.
Virtual audience: BOOOOOOOO!!!
Persephone: What’s that? I mean it’s tough to imagine that they would have any insecurities because literally nothing stands out about them now. All I hear is (mocking inaudible sounds).
James Peters: Uh, disregard folks at home, we’re prone to having some audio issues every now and then ourselves that cause to say things we don’t me-
Persephone: Oh, don’t you worry guys I meant every bit of what I s-…(off headset) HEY! What’d you to my headset!!??
(Persephone is shown openly annoyed as she continues to try speaking through her headset, but to no avail.)
James Peters: Thanks for the best assist ever partner, I owe you one for doing that.
Rich Russillo: Well, as much as I’d love to take the credit for that one I can’t.
(James and Rich are both shown looking over to the outlet transformer only to see Harper Lee, who realizes she has been caught red-handed.)
Harper Lee: 🤷♀️
(Harper playfully smiles, even waves with playful innocence, and then puts a finger to her mouth as a signal to keep quiet about it as she trots back to her position in the corner on the ring apron, while we still look on to see Persephone slamming her headset down, smashing it against the announce table in uttering nothing but obscenities in complete disgust.)
Virtual audience: THANK-YOU HARPER! THANK-YOU HARPER! THANK-YOU HARPER! THANK-YOU HARPER! THANK-YOU HARPER!
Rich Russillo: I guess even Harper Lee got tired of hearing Persephone, but I don’t know if she’s now made things better, or worse!
James Peters: Oh boy. Persephone’s tantrum is real folks, but we still got live action in the ring. Sierra Bradford is finally finding the strength, that second wind to slowly get back to her feet, but Myles is keeping that hold cinched in tight. Sierra, she’s trying to reach for the ropes, but she can’t quite touch them. Now a sharp elbow to the midsection delivered by Sierra, but Myles barely budges showing no real affects. Sierra tries it again, and this time Myles feels that one and takes exception to it and decides to play dirty and pull Sierra back by her hair and slams her head down against the canvas!
Rich Russillo: Myles just tried to smash the head of Sierra with that knee drop, but she cleverly moves out of the way, showing great awareness for the situation! Now Sierra bounces off the ropes! Harper Lee tags in as Sierra comes back at Myles! SUPERKICK BY SIERRA TO THE CHIN OF MYLES WHICH SENDS HIM STUMBLING BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! TAG RUNNING SPRINGBOARD FLATLINER BY HARPER LEE TO MYLES! HARPER GOES FOR THE COVER AND PIN ATTEMPT BUT THE REFEREE LETS HER KNOW IMMEDIATELY THAT MYLES ISN’T THE LEGAL MAN!
James Peters: AND FROM BEHIND IT’S MINERVA! MINERVA IS STOMPING THE HELL OUT OF HARPER LEE, BUT HARPER FINALLY CATCHES A BOOT AND TAKES DOWN MINERVA AND RECOVERS BACK TO HER FEET! MINERVA IS UP! BUT HARPER GRABS HER BY HER ARM AND DELIVERS A RIPCORD WHEEL KICK THAT TAKES DOWN MINERVA AGAIN! DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF MINERVA! MINERVA SCOOTS BACK INTO THE CORNER BUT HARPER LEE IS UNRELENTING! HERE SHE COMES! RUNNING METEORA TO THE HEAD OF MINERVA! MINERVA IS DAZED AS HARPER BRINGS HER BACK UP TO HER FEET IN THE CORNER! SHE-OH A HEADBUTT BY MINERVA STAGGERS HARPER LEE BACK THOUGH! MINERVA WITH A HARD FOREARM TO THE HEAD OF HARPER! NOW MINERVA FOLLOWS UP WITH A LARI-JUMPING REVERSE BULLDOG BY HARPER LEE! MINERVA WAS GOING FOR A LARIAT BUT WAS STOPPED RIGHT IN HER TRACKS! HARPER, SHE’S NOT DONE! SHE RUNS TO THE ROPES AND NOW DELIVERS A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! HARPER HURRIES IN FOR THE COVER! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!
Ref: ONE!!!… TWO!!!…
Rich Russillo: So close! Harper pulls Minerva back up, irish whip by Harper! Minerva reverses and sends Harper to the ropes, and a stiff blow to the midsection by Minerva! Facebuster by Minerva! The cover by Minerva!
James Peters: And Sierra Bradford gets in there just in time to break up the pin attempt. The referee orders ‘The Girl On Fire’ out of the ring, and this allows Minerva time to drag Harper to her corner where Myles is, and there’s the TAG which brings Myles back into the match and now they both send Harper to the ropes, and coming back both Minerva and Myles go for the clothesline but it’s ducked by Harper Lee who stops herself at the ropes! Minerva charges at Harper but Harper has the instincts to backbody drop Minerva over the top rope to the floor! Running knee to the back of Harper that takes her down to a knee! Harper is holding her back but Myles doesn’t care, he’s forcing Harper into the corner and now he’s choking her with his boot in the corner. The referee begins making his count and reaches five before Myles lets up and then pulls Harper out of the corner and then levels Harper with a vicious lariat that knocks her to the canvas! Now the cover by Myles! This could be it!
Rich Russillo: No that’s not it. Harper Lee showing an unbelievable amount of fortitude to kick out of that, I mean that was a huge lariat delivered by the former Unified Tag Team champion. Masochist x Manifest is obviously looking to make a statement here tonight against the current Unified Tag Team Champions, and that statement being that you could see us again down the line and we’re every bit as capable of taking away what you possess.
James Peters: Indeed. You couldn’t have said it any better than that, Rich. We’ve got Persephone still here beside us at the floor trying to figure out what happened to her headset, she’s just continuously smashing it against our announce table.
Persephone (off mic): WHICH ONE OF YOU DID THIS!!?? THIS IS NOT RIGHT! I’VE GOT A RIGHT TO SPEAK JUST LIKE ANYONE ELSE! IF THE FIRST AMENDMENT WAS PUT IN PLACE ANYONE SPECIFIC TO APPLY TO ALL IT WAS ME GODDAMMIT! THIS IS BULLSHIT!! HERE-
Rich Russillo (off mic): HEY! GIVE ME BACK MY HEADSET!
(There’s a struggle between the two commentators over the headset)
Persephone: NO! Look, see-see! I can call a match too! Look at that little virgin mary, blonde wishing she was an aphrodite-having bitch getting choked out by that fake-ass redhead while the guy in stripes talks with her goof of a partner. That virgin mary looks like she practices losing her virginity to her anime pillow that way! She fucking suc-HEY! (off mic) YOU CAN’T DO THIS! THE MASSES DESERVE TO HEAR WHAT I HAVE TO SAY!
Rich Russillo: No they don’t, they deserve only the best that we can provide. Maybe you should try eating some of that makeup all over your face so you can be pretty on the inside for once!
(Persephone looks at Rich in shock after Rich’s remark, before continuing to try and fix her headset once more.)
James Peters: Amen to that, Rich. I always knew you had it in you. Back to action in the ring it’s Harper Lee getting the advantage back finally against Myles with a spinning roundhouse kick to the skull that staggers him before finally leaping out and finally tagging in a fresh Sierra Bradford! And ‘The Girl on Fire’ comes back in on fire! Sierra with multiple shoot kicks to the midsection of Myles followed by Righting Woes, the spinning heel kick takes down Myles but he pops back up! Russian leg sweep by Sierra Bradford! Cannonball senton by Sierra! And now Sierra takes a moment to hype up the crowd, our virtual viewers! She really knows how to involve everyone in her matches from a positive point of view doesn’t she Rich?
Rich Russillo: Yeah, but she better worry about her opponent. Myles tags Minerva back in and now both women circle the ring, and now they lock up and it’s Minerva that shows her strength by forcing Sierra into the ropes but Sierra turns it around! Sierra rushes right at Minerva but Minerva with a back body drop, but somehow Sierra lands on her feet on the outside apron! Minerva comes charging at Sierra looking to land a forearm shot but Sierra anticipated it well ahead of time and she hits the shoulder thrust to the midsection of Minerva which makes her keel over slightly holding her midsection in some discomfort! Sierra now grabs Minerva from behind and now has her up-NO! MINERVA IS ABLE TO ESCAPE WHATEVER SIERRA HAD IN MIND AND NOW SIERRA RUNS AT MINERVA BUT MINERVA CATCHES HER! SPINEBUSTER JUST PLANTED SIERRA ON THE CANVAS!! THE COVER BY MINERVA!!
James Peters: And now it’s Harper Lee coming in to make the save for Sierra Bradford, and now Myles steps in and immediately steps up to Harper Lee who looks up at him. Both appear to be as competitive as hell and don’t want to back off from one another but finally the referee steps in to separate the two and warns them that they need to leave the ring! The action in the ring continues! Minerva irish whips Sierra into the ropes and coming back Minerva tries to apply a sleeper hold on Sierra just as Myles was able to do earlier in the match but this time Sierra transitions out of it and sends Minerva toward the nearby corner turnbuckle, and Sierra looks to follow up but Minerva anticipates it and catches her with a boot to the face. Now it’s a Sierra Bradford that’s pulled to the corner by Minerva and a running clothesline to Sierra! Minerva transitions into a headlock using the second rope to finish off the combination with a bulldog-NO! Sierra blocked it and Minerva crashes and burns!
Rich Russillo: Minerva’s up to her knees but a superkick by Sierra sends Minerva reeling back! Sierra goes for another but this time Minerva catches the kick and pulls Sierra down and off her feet! Minerva just gouged the eye of Sierra! Headbutt by Minerva! Both women are slowly getting back to their feet but Minerva is closer to her corner and she smartly pulls Sierra in with her as she backs up to where Myles is.
James Peters: Minerva is holding Sierra from behind and this allows Myles to get a free shot in to Sierra’s midsection, now a snapmare takes Sierra down and Myles follows up with a running knee strike to the lower back of Sierra, and she yelps out in pain after that strike by Myles! The Realm members are hanging in there, but Masochist x Manifest are showing exactly why the meaning of getting down and getting dirty is not a lost art. They’re not doing anything fancy out there, but they’re definitely playing to their strengths and it’s put them in the perfect position to potentially snag themselves a win against the current Unified Tag Team Champions!
Rich Russillo: Now Sierra is getting draped and choked on the second rope, the referee is at the count of four, now five! Myles won’t stop and the referee is warning him but now Myles is in the referee’s face, but Minerva drops off the apron behind the referee’s back and now gets a cheap shot in on Sierra! Harper Lee sees this and argues vehemently on behalf of her partner, before Myles approaches the ground Sierra again and begins slapping her around! She can’t like that too much at all! Myles goes to pick her up! Hold on! Sierra surprises Myles with a small package!
James Peters: Myles kicks out and you can see it’s almost as if he took exception to the fact that he almost lost in that fashion now turns immediately and floors Sierra with the lariat! Myles is bringing the dazed Sierra Bradford back to her feet and now lifts her off her feet racking her on his back! She’s struggling to escape! Harper Lee has seen enough, she looks to step in but wait a minute! MINERVA! MINERVA SOMEHOW SNUCK AROUND UNDETECTED AND NOW HAS A HOLD ON THE BOOTS OF HARPER! HARPER IS PULLED OFF THE APRON TO THE FLOOR! NOW HARPER AND MINERVA WHO AREN’T LEGAL ARE SLUGGING IT OUT BACK AND FORTH! INSIDE THE RING SIERRA DOES ESCAPE THE RACKING POSITION AND LANDS ON HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: WHOA! SNAP DDT BY SIERRA BRADFORD TO MYLES! MYLES IS TRYING TO SHAKE IT OFF ALREADY AS HE RISES BACK TO HIS KNEES! BUT SIERRA IS ALREADY CHARGING HARD AT HIM WITH THE SEEKING MISSILE! THE RUNNING KNEE! NO! MYLES AVOIDS IT! ON THE OUTSIDE MINERVA HAD JUST DOWNED HARPER LEE WITH THE DEVIL’S TOUCH! MINERVA JUST FOLLOWED THIS UP BY SENDING HARPER HEADFIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! MINERVA IS NOW MAKING HER WAY BACK TO HER CORNER! IN THE RING MYLES IS JUST WENT FOR THE BLACK BLADE! THAT POP UP JUMPING KNEE STRIKE IS AVOIDED BY SIERRA BRADFORD! THE ELECTRIC FEEL! THE SHINING WIZARD OF SIERRA MISSES! MYLES WAS ABLE TO SIDESTEP IN TIME!
James Peters: MYLES IS ABLE TO SEND SIERRA TO THE CORNER WITH SUCH VELOCITY! HER CORNER, AND SHE TURNS AROUND TO FINALLY SEE THAT HER PARTNER IS ON THE FLOOR TRYING TO RECOVER BUT CLEARLY IN NO CONDITION FOR A TAG! NOW THERE’S A TAG BUT IT’S FROM THE OTHER SIDE! NOW BOTH MYLES AND MINERVA HAVE WICKED SMILES ON THEIR FACES AS THEY START MOVING IN ON THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION! BUT SIERRA WILL NOT RUNAWAY! SHE CHARGES HEAD ON RIGHT FOR MYLES AND MINERVA! BOTH TAKE THEIR BEST SHOT AT TAKING SIERRA DOWN BUT SHE DUCKS THE DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT! MYLES TURNS RIGHT INTO RIGHTING WOES! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK KNOCKS MYLES OUT OF THE FRAY BUT THE UNCONTROLLED MOMENTUM OF MYLES JUST MADE HIM COLLIDE WITH THE REFEREE!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA TURNS TO MEET MINERVA! THE DARK! MINERVA JUST SPIT THAT DARK BLINDING MIST INTO THE FACE OF SIERRA BRADFORD! SHADES OF WHAT SHE DID MONTHS AGO TO HER IN THE ICONIC CUP TOURNAMENT! SIERRA IS SCREAMING BECAUSE THE MIST IS BURNING AS MUCH AS IT IS BLINDING! MINERVA IS WASTING NO TIME AS THE REFEREE IS STILL DOWN!
James Peters: MINERVA JUST HOISTED SIERRA UP INTO A HESITATION SUPLEX! SHE’S GOT HER UP BUT SHE HAD TO BLIND SIERRA WITH THAT MIST TO GET THIS ADVANTAGE! SHE BRINGS SIERRA DOWN IN A TWISTING MOTION! ATLAS FALLS! TWISTING BRAINBUSTER JUST DRILLED THE HEAD OF SIERRA BRADFORD INTO THE CANVAS! MYLES IS RECOVERING NOW AND HE JUST MADE EYE CONTACT WITH MINERVA AND HE SLAPS AT THE FACE OF THE REFEREE TO REVIVE HIM AND THEN GRABS HIM AND MOVES HIM CLOSER TO WHERE MINERVA IS HOOKING THE LEG OF UNCONSCIOUS SIERRA BRADFORD! HARPER LEE IS TRYING TO HURRY AND ROLL UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE BUT SHE’S ALREADY BEING CUT OFF BY MYLES WHO BASEBALL SLIDES AND CONNECTS WITH A KICK THEN PREVENTS HARPER FROM GETTING IN! MYLES KEEPS HIS STANCE ALERT FOR ANY MORE POSSIBLE ONCOMING INTERFERENCE AS THE REFEREE SLOWLY PICKS HIS ARM OFF THE MAT!
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners…The Warlord, Myles and The Gypsy Moth, MINERVA!!!!!
Persephone: HA! Finally figured this shitty ass audio crap out! I should get hazard pay for having to work around this electrical equipment, which isn’t in my job description I might add! Definitely glad the lesser losers won too!
James Peters: You’ll all have to excuse my broadcast colleague, we just witnessed a good affair that could be a potential future matchup if The Realm are still the Unified Tag Team Champions by the time the Grand Prix is said and done and the winners to come out of the tournament happen to be the team of Minerva and Myles, Masochist x Manifest! I don’t like how the ending went, but nonetheless it doesn’t take away from the fact that a huge statement was made tonight, Rich!
Rich Russillo: Right. After defeating and eliminating The Corona Hombres from the Grand Prix tournament in questionable fashion, you can’t be too surprised by this result and the fashion in which Minerva and Myles got this win. Minerva is so well known for who she is and what she can do. She wasn’t a record setting Unified Tag Team Champion for no reason. She knows how to find the advantage, and that’s exactly what she showed here tonight. The Realm fought hard and showed their well deserved Champion grit, but congratulations to the winners tonight, Minerva and Myles!
(‘Manifest’ plays, and the virtual crowd boos as Minerva and Myles have their hands raised by the referee. As they stay in the ring to celebrate, Sierra Bradford is still unconscious in the ring, and Harper Lee is barely stirring outside of the ring, clearly upset with how that match ended.)

(The camera fades into the World 1 Theatre as in the center of the ring seen there is a podium. On the podium it is none other than the vacated Specialists Championship sitting on it which creates an aura around it as the crowd is left buzzing as the camera pans away from the camera to show Sofia Clarke to the left of the podium as she looks with a smile as she does so. She takes a long pause as the camera is on her as she begins to speak)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the meeting between the two finalists of the SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!!
(The crowd pops for a moment as Sofia lets them before continuing to speak)
Sofia Clarke: Introducing first… VEENA ADAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Before long the mood turns sour as the crowd begins to boo as ‘ME’ by Taylor Swift ft. Brendon Urie plays up as Veena Adams makes her way out to the ring. She gives a wave to the crowd full of cockiness as she messes with them by touching her heart as she does so before smiling from ear to ear full of an egotistical aura as she makes her way down the ramp and to the ring. Before long she makes her way up the steel steps before going onto the apron and entering into the ring as she tilts her head and looks at Sofia Clarke before shaking her head as she leans against the ropes as ‘ME’ fades out)
Sofia Clarke: And next, her opponent at Wicked Games… KASEY KAOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Before long the crowd’s reaction is turned to a more mixed response as ‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson plays up as Kasey Kaos comes out through the curtain and to the center of the stage. She drops down to her knees and spreads her arms out before making her way down the ramp as she crawls while doing so. She continues to crawl as she slows down for a bit at the bottom of the ramp stopping and looking at the cameraman before crawling into the ring. She poses at the center of the ring before standing up to her knees and looking up at her opposition and never breaking her stare as ‘Cry Little Sister’ fades out)
(Kasey stands up as she continues to look at Veena as she brings the mic up to her mouth, not giving any room for Sofia to speak as she begins to do so)
Kasey Kaos: I’m sure you haven’t forgotten us… have you Veena? You haven’t forgotten what we’ve done to you last week, when we took you out like the trash you were and closed all hopes of survival down on your corpse. That’s the future that you’ll be seeing in our hands too, when we close it like a cage and you’re trapped on our palms, we’re in control. This is the fate that you signed up for, you know what you’ve gotten yourself into, now you’re just going to have to swallow it. Because it won’t be long before we pick you apart, we’ve already done that haven’t we? We’ve torn you apart and have already gotten into your head, and I know that just eats you alive, like an infection. That is your fate, Veena Adams, you’re going to have to accept it, bite the bullet.
(Kasey gives a pause to let her words sink in before she continues on)
Kasey Kaos: Your time as a wrestler is coming to a close, you should’ve realized that already, but now you know it’s at our hands. We will stop at nothing to make sure that you don’t leave Wicked Games unscathed and we will make sure that we come out as the Specialists Championship.
(Kasey brings her mic down before Veena holds up a finger)
Veena Adams: Hold on… :mjlol:.
(Veena begins to laugh as she composes herself and straightens herself up before looking up to Kasey)
Veena Adams: That was the most corniest shit I’ve ever heard, I get we’re supposed to be all spooky and stuff. But do you think anyone is really, I don’t know, scared of you? Who the fuck do you think you are? Who the fuck do any of you think you are to backsass me like you’ve done, with one phonecall I can end your entire career, but I’m nice like that ain’t I? I’ve given you some undeserved leniency that will just like everyone else, bite you right in the ass and make you suffer. Sure you may have gotten one over on me, clap it up bitch, that’s the only time you will ever stand tall against an Adams. I’m the only woman in this land of sluts and whores that is good enough to carry the legacy of the Specialists Championship and I think you prim and pretty hoes need to be reminded what this belt really stands for, proving your a Specialist. That you can wrestle any type of match that this shit throws your way and do it to near perfection, that’s life. And I’ll defend that shit proudly, something that you couldn’t even do even if it pegged you. You think anyone’s scared of you?! NOBODIES LAUGHING-
(Before long Veena abruptly breaks her sentence)
Rich Russillo: VEENA HAS SNATCHED THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP FROM ITS PODIUM! KASEY IS CAUGHT BY SURPRISE AS VEENA RUNS FORWARD AND TAKES KASEY OUT WITH IT!
(Veena drops the belt down as she looks down at Kasey shaking her head as Kasey grabs her head in pain before Veena drops down as well)
James Peters: KILLER QUEEN’S RHAPSODY! KIMURA LOCK IS LOCKED IN! SHE HAS IT LOCKED IN TIGHT AS KASEY IS SQUIRMING AROUND TRYING TO ESCAPE OUT OF THE HOLD BEFORE VEENA CAN DO ANY PERMANENT DAMAGE!
(Veena keeps the hold locked in for a long period of time but it isn’t long before Kasey’s movements slow down before completely coming to a halt as Veena manages to subdue her. Veena pushes her away and gets back up to her feet. She picks up the Specialists Championship and straps the belt around her waist. Sofia Clarke looks to interject as Veena puts her hand up in front of Sofia and shakes her head as she leaves the ring with a smirk on her face as she’s leaving with the Specialists Championship as that’s the last shot seen as Voltage fades out to commercial break)

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac plays through the speakers as the virtual crowd gives a nice pop to TLA, who comes out in his Mexican themed lowrider. A couple of poons are sitting in the back seat, grooving to TLA’s entrance music before he parks the lowrider near the side of the ramp and makes his way towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL —
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM THE POON PALACE IN MIAMI, FLORIDA…WEIGHING IN 210 POUNDS… ‘LA PANTERA SEXUAL’… TLA!!!!!!!
James Peters: The crowd just loves TLA, ladies and gentlemen! He always has a smile on his face, but that will disappear as he manages to take on Drake King in Barbed Wire Massacre V at Wicked Games!
Persephone: I can’t believe that we’re going to be having our first FPV without Rex. How am I going to cope with the idea of not being looking forward to a Rex match? 😔
Rich Russillo: TLA would love to knock off SOSA Henderson tonight! Can you imagine if TLA manages to get a victory over the EAW Champion? Would that put him on front of the line for a future shot at the title?
James Peters: If SOSA manages to keep the belt at Wicked Games and TLA takes down Drake King, it could be a clear path to TLA getting his second World Championship!
(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef replaces ‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ as the crowd gives a negative reception for SOSA Henderson, who comes out with the EAW Championship wrapped on his shoulder. SOSA doesn’t give a fuck about the reception because he knows that he’s richer, handsome and better than any of the neckbeards in the virtual crowd tonight.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…FROM PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA…WEIGHING IN 191 POUNDS… HE IS THE EAW CHAMPION… ‘BULLETPROOF’… SOSA HENDERSON!!!!!
James Peters: SOSA Henderson will be set to defend the EAW Championship against Ahren Fournier at Wicked Games! He knows that Ahren will be watching this match from the back, so his objective going into the match will be to send a message to his challenger!
Persephone: It should be Rex with that EAW Championship. God, that main event is going to be such a snoozefest. Maybe, I should call off next weekend.
Rich Russillo: You’re not calling off, Persephone. SOSA Henderson managed to shock everyone by capturing the EAW Championship at Territorial Invasion. I don’t think there was many people who believed that he would win against Rex McAllister, but he proved a lot of people wrong that night!
James Peters: SOSA has unpredictability on his side and I can sense that helping him here tonight and at Wicked Games.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: THIS MAIN EVENT IS UNDERWAY!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson and TLA circle around each other before going into lock up with each other, but SOSA manages to push the former World Heavyweight Champion back towards the ropes, BUT TLA BOLTS TOWARDS SOSA, GOING FOR A SPINNING BACK FIST, BUT SOSA MANAGES TO CATCH TLA BEFORE GETTING HIM IN POSITION FOR A REVERSE DDT, BUT TLA MANAGES TO BRIDGE HIMSELF OUT OF THE REVERSE DDT BEFORE NAILING THE EAW CHAMPION WITH AN ELBOW SHOT TO THE FACE. This staggers SOSA back a bit, but TLA manages to get SOSA by his ankles and take him down to his knees! TLA finds a way back to a vertical base and gets in front of SOSA’s face!
Persephone: Oh god, this match is so boring. This show isn’t the same without Rex. 😔
James Peters: TLA delivers a harsh slap to the champion’s face! But, look at this, ladies and gentlemen.
SOSA Henderson: (off-mic) My side bitch slaps harder than that!
Rich Russillo: TLA delivers a nasty side kick to the skull of SOSA Henderson, knocking him down to his side! TLA doesn’t waste any time as mounts some aggressive punches to the face of the EAW Champion! TLA transitions those punches to some elbow shots to the skull of SOSA before grabbing him by his braids and throwing him head first against the turnbuckle! TLA CONNECTS WITH A NASTY SIDE HAND CHOP TO THE CHEST OF SOSA! AND THEN ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! YOU CAN SEE THE CHEST OF SOSA GOING TO A BABY PINK COLOR! TLA gets SOSA by his arm before Irish whipping him to the opposite corner!
Persephone: Do you know who had a wonderful Irish whip? Rex.
Rich Russillo: It’s going to be okay, baby. I got you.
Persephone: Please don’t.
James Peters: :mjlol: … Anyways, like a panther, TLA charges towards the champion with running uppercut to the corner, but SOSA manages to dodge the uppercut at the last second, but TLA manages to stop himself in his tracks, but SOSA Henderson nails him with a dropkick to TLA’s back, making ‘La Pantera Sexual’ collide with the turnbuckle! SOSA sees an opening there and proceeds to roll up TLA! He’s looking to end this match quite early!
Persephone: Thank god.
Rich Russillo: TLA manages to roll himself out of the roll-up, but SOSA Henderson manages to keep this match in his favor by connecting with a sliding forearm to the former World Heavyweight Champion! This knocks TLA to his back as he tries to get himself back to his feet, but SOSA manages to stop him from getting back to his feet entirely by connecting with a spinning back kick to his stomach! TLA clutches to his stomach in response to that as SOSA follows that up with a punch to the forehead of TLA, staggering him back in the process! SOSA connects with another punch to TLA as he continues to stagger towards the perpendicular set of ropes! Once TLA gets to the set of ropes, it seems like we’re going to see a bit of that boxing background from SOSA as he’s delivering a rapid boxing combination!
Persephone: He’s nailing TLA’s head, neck, and stomach! TLA doesn’t know where to expect the hit, but SOSA Henderson is nailing him where he doesn’t expect it! TLA finds himself overwhelmed as the referee manages to step in and pull apart SOSA from TLA!
James Peters: This provides TLA with a bit of time to get back to a vertical position! Meanwhile, the EAW Champion is done with getting lectured by the referee and shifts his focus back on his opponent, but TLA manages to springboard himself off the ropes and connect with a springboard roundhouse kick to SOSA Henderson! This takes the champion down as TLA is looking to shift this match back to his favor! SOSA is scrambling to his feet, but TLA manages to take SOSA to his knees with a beautiful dropkick! Now, it seems like TLA manages to connect with a series of shoot kicks to the sides of SOSA! SOSA is trying to block each shoot kick, but man, don’t those shoot kicks look harsh? I would hate to be on the receiving end of those!
Persephone: Rex would never find himself on the receiving end of those! :wow: TLA connects with one last shoot kick as that knocks SOSA Henderson to his side! TLA rolls SOSA onto his back before going for the cover!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson gets a shoulder up on one! He’s not planning to throw in the towel any time soon! TLA manages to get SOSA before applying with a grounded sleeper hold! I don’t think that TLA is intended to make SOSA completely pass out, but weaken the champion so that he can capitalize and win the match! SOSA can be quite rapid in the ring, so using this to help keep the champion grounded is quite smart of TLA to do!
James Peters: But, I don’t think that it’s going to work for long, Rich! SOSA Henderson is trying to get to his feet, but TLA is quite too stubborn to release the hold just yet! SOSA is mustering up all the strength that he possibly can as he manages to get himself to a vertical base! He manages to counter with a stunner on TLA as that staggers him back! SOSA slides towards TLA before getting him by his ankles and tripping him! TLA manages to drape himself onto the middle rope! SOSA begins to connect with a rope choke on TLA! TLA is trying to gasp for some air! I think that the referee may need to step in!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! THAT’S ENOUGH, SOSA!
Persephone: Rex is so obedient. He would have broken up the rope choke way before the five count.
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson releases the rope choke. Now, he jumps on the back of TLA with a double foot stomp! SOSA exits the ring and stands on the apron before delivering a harsh knee to the skull of TLA! This sends TLA’s head back inside the ring! SOSA is grasping onto the ropes as he stalks TLA back to his feet before springboarding off the top rope and connecting with a springboard dropkick! The dropkick nails TLA in the face as SOSA gets to his feet once again! TLA is scrambling onto his feet as well, BUT SOSA GETS TLA BY THE ARM AND CONNECTS WITH AN ARM DRAG THAT SENDS THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION ACROSS THE RING! TLA RUSHES TOWARDS SOSA AGAIN, BUT SOSA CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ARM DRAG AS TLA IS SENT ACROSS THE RING, BUT TLA IS REFUSING TO GIVE UP WITHOUT A FIGHT AS HE RUSHES TOWARDS SOSA AGAIN, BUT SOSA MANAGES TO TRAP TLA’S ARM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SINGLE-ARM DDT!
James Peters: TLA is clutching that left arm of his as it seems like SOSA Henderson has made it some sort of target going forward in this match up! SOSA Henderson gets TLA by his left arm before bending it back!
Persephone: SOSA STOMPS ON TLA’S ARM! :damn: :damn: :damn:
Rich Russillo: TLA begins to cry out in pain as he’s clutching his left arm! But, SOSA doesn’t seem to react to that as he gets TLA’s left arm again, bending it back and HE STOMPS ON IT AGAIN! ONCE AGAIN, YOU HEAR TLA CRY OUT IN PAIN AS SOSA TAKES A MOMENT TO STEP BACK AND WATCH TLA CRY LIKE A BITCH!
James Peters: TLA has been through worse, Rich! He’s scratched and clawed to get the success that he’s managed to get throughout his career! It seems like TLA is looking to put on a brave face at the moment. He is doing everything in his power to hide the pain as he manages to get to his knees! He still seems to be favoring that arm of his, ladies and gentlemen!
TLA: (off-mic) Dame the smoke, pendejo.
Persephone: By the look on SOSA Henderson’s face, it seems like he’s going to do that. :lupe:
Rich Russillo: SOSA HENDERSON GETS ON HIS KNEES AND SLIDES TOWARDS TLA BEFORE NAILING HIM WITH A NASTY PIMP SLAP TO HIS FACE, BUT THAT DOESN’T SEEM TO STARTLE TLA WHATSOEVER! INSTEAD, TLA FORMS A SMIRK ON HIS FACE AND SILENTLY CHUCKLES!
TLA: (off-mic) My poons slap harder than that!
James Peters: That is only going to fire up the EAW Champion even more! That could be TLA’s biggest mistake going into the match! SOSA Henderson with another pimp slap to TLA’s face, BUT TLA MANAGES TO DUCK THE SLAP SOMEHOW! HE MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH AN UPPERCUT TO SOSA, WHICH MAKES THE CHAMPION STAGGER BACK A BIT! SOSA THROWS A PUNCH TO TLA! TLA THROWS A PUNCH TO SOSA! SOSA WITH ANOTHER PUNCH TO TLA! TLA WITH ANOTHER PUNCH TO SOSA! SOSA! TLA! SOSA! TLA! TLA! TLA! SOSA WITH A HEADBUTT TO TLA AND ANOTHER HEADBUTT BY SOSA TO TLA!
Persephone: SOSA Henderson gets TLA up to his feet — STOLE YO BITCH! THE JUMPING CUTTER OUT OF NOWHERE, BUT TLA MANAGES TO SHOVE SOSA AWAY FROM HIM! TLA JUST BARELY DODGING THE MOVE AS SOSA TURNS AROUND, BUT TLA MANAGES TO CLOTHESLINE SOSA OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson manages to catch himself on the apron! TLA goes to get SOSA, but SOSA manages to connect with a nasty looking forearm to TLA, BUT TLA MANAGES TO DUCK BEFORE SLIDING UNDERNEATH SOSA’S LEGS ON THE APRON! TLA HAS SOSA UP IN THE AIR BEFORE DELIVERING A NASTY POWERBOMB TO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! It was some wonderful thinking by ‘La Pantera Sexual’ as SOSA landed awkwardly on his neck! TLA is getting to SOSA’s face and slapping his head over and over again, trying to tell the champion to get back to his feet! SOSA slowly rises back to his feet, but TLA with a meteora as the back of SOSA’s head collides with the front of the announcers’ desk!
James Peters: TLA gets the EAW Champion by his braids before getting him back up to his feet! TLA slams the face of SOSA Henderson on our desk! This staggers SOSA back a bit, but TLA pushes SOSA as his lower back collides with the edge of the apron! The champion is in some trouble as TLA manages to climb on top of our table! He’s stalking SOSA to his feet as —
Persephone: CROSSBODY ONTO SOSA HENDERSON, WHO WAS RUNNING TOWARDS TLA! TLA TAKES DOWN SOSA WITH A CROSSBODY!
(The referee’s count is at a six as TLA manages to roll himself back inside the ring, breaking the referee’s count. He exits the ring again to resume his punishment on SOSA Henderson.)
Rich Russillo: It was smart for TLA to get back inside the ring and break up the count! He goes to get SOSA Henderson, but SOSA shoves TLA away from him, but SOSA manages to get TLA’s ankles before tripping him! TLA falls head first against the steel steps! I think that SOSA may have found his opening to shift this match back into his favor! TLA is holding the back of his head! That wasn’t a nice landing whatsoever, but that’s what happens when you give SOSA ANY TIME to recover, he’ll use it to strategize and find a way to shift this match back to his favor! That was TLA’s mistake there and he now has to suffer the consequences of it!
Persephone: SOSA Henderson rolls himself back into the ring to break the referee’s count again before disassembling the steel steps from the ring post. He places TLA’s head in between the steel steps and ring post! Okay, what happens next is not going to be pretty whatsoever!
James Peters: SOSA KICKS IN THE STEEL STEPS WITH TLA’S HEAD INSIDE OF IT!!! :damn: :damn: :damn:
Persephone: Thank fucking god. SOSA is now bringing TLA back into this ring. Perhaps, this match will end now!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson is racing for the top rope! It seems like we’re getting towards the end of the matchup, ladies and gentlemen! We’ve seen this move quite a few times from the EAW Champion and we’re going to see it once again! SOSA BOMB — THE SWANTON BOMB TO TLA!!!!
James Peters: It connects on TLA as SOSA Henderson goes for the cover!
Persephone: FUCK. TLA KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! CAN SOMEONE END THIS FUCKING MATCH!?!?!?
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson rests on his knees as he can’t seem to believe that there’s still some life in TLA! I think that he was expecting for TLA to be out of it when he kicked his head in with the steel steps. That, combined with the SOSA BOMB, should have been the winning formula, but TLA, somehow, manages to kick out at the last second!
James Peters: This is the same man who reigned as World Heavyweight Champion for four months! A man who scratched and clawed for years to get his first World Championship! He went through everything possible and still, he remains the same man that he’s always been and the EAW Universe loves that!
Persephone: Yeah, yeah, yeah! Do you know who else the EAW Universe loved? Rex.
Rich Russillo: We all did, Persephone. SOSA Henderson recollects himself to his feet as he is heading for the top rope once again! IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S GOING TO END TLA ONCE AND FOR ALL WITH THIS NEXT MOVE! HE CALLS IT ‘PAID IN FULL’ — THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! SOSA FROM THE TOP ROPE! PAID. IN. FULL!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: NO ONE IS HOME! TLA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! SOSA Henderson manages to roll himself and prevent himself from crashing and burning! TLA manages to roll himself out of the ring once again! Wonderful ring awareness from the veteran! He’s someone who has been in this business for a long time! He should be more than aware of where he is at all times! In this case, it saved him from losing this match! SOSA looks kind of pissed that TLA managed to move out of the way at the last second! I think that even SOSA knew that he was seconds away from winning the match, but he can’t stay pissed about it for long! He needs to continue to move forward!
Persephone: I wished that SOSA won this match because it would mean that the entire thing is over!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson rolls himself back outside the ring! SOSA gets TLA back to his feet, but TLA manages to shove SOSA away from him! SOSA RUSHES TOWARDS TLA AND CONNECTS WITH A ‘SWAG SHOT’ — THE PIMP SLAP TO SOSA! THAT MUST HAVE BEEN THE HARDEST PIMP SLAP THAT TLA HAS DELIVERED AND SOSA IS SURELY FEELING THE IMPACT OF THAT PIMP SLAP! SOSA RUSHES TOWARDS TLA, BUT TLA MANAGES TO GET SOSA UP TO HIS FEET AND CONNECTS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! SOSA LANDS ON HIS NECK AWKWARDLY!
James Peters: SOSA almost collided with those steel steps, but manages to land on the floor just barely! TLA gets SOSA up before slamming him face first against the edge of the apron, making the EAW Champion fall back! The referee is at the count of five as TLA rolls himself out of the ring, breaking up the referee’s count! BUT, HE SOMEHOW CLIMBS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES TLA HAVE IN STORE?!?!
Persephone: I hope it’s something life threatening, so that this match can end as soon as possible!
Rich Russillo: TLA is situating himself on the top turnbuckle! His back is turned to SOSA Henderson, who is slowly making his way to his feet, BUT TLA FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! MOONSAULT FROM THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!
James Peters: SOSA tried to catch TLA, but TLA connects with that moonsault as both men find themselves down! The virtual crowd is applauding TLA from that high-risk move! Now, it’s just a race to see which of them can make it back to their feet! By the looks of things, it seems like TLA landed on his injured arm! SOSA had done a good number on TLA’s arm earlier in the match, and it was just about time that it was going to play a factor going into this match!
Persephone: The referee is beginning his count and I am praying to god that this ends up being a double count out! 🙏🏻
Rich Russillo: Like you said, James. It’s just a race to see who can get back to their feet first! The referee is at the count of four as we see that TLA is the first one to his feet, but he’s feeling quite shaky as he gets to his feet! He tries to get SOSA Henderson by his air, but SOSA manages to shove TLA near the edge of the apron! SOSA is trying to get to his feet all on his own as he races towards TLA, BUT TLA WITH A VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT TO SOSA! THIS STAGGERS SOSA BACK AS TLA MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH DROPKICK AS THAT SENDS SOSA BACK TO THE FRONT OF OUR ANNOUNCERS’ TABLE! TLA GETS SOSA AND ROLLS HIM BACK INSIDE THE RING AS HE GETS BACK TO THE RING HIMSELF!
Persephone: TLA is heading up for that top turnbuckle again! Oh god, just what this match needs and that is more wrestling! TLA IS SETTLING HIMSELF UP ON THE TOP ROPE AS HE FLIES FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE — 460! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS ON SOSA HENDERSON! TLA MANAGES TO LAND RIGHT ONTO THE RIBS OF THE CHAMPION AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER! WILL THIS BE A THREE COUNT?
Rich Russillo: SOSA HENDERSON KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND!!!!!!
James Peters: TLA can’t seem to believe it at the moment! He thought that SOSA was done after the 460! But, this is just one of the reasons why SOSA Henderson is the EAW Champion, ladies and gentlemen! He is able to find some strength after the toughest situations that he’s encountered! Not just in wrestling, but his personal life as well! He is able to find himself in tough situations, but rises above it stronger than ever! TLA cannot let his anger get the best of him! He does have times, where he finds himself frustrated about not getting his opponent down! He needs to remain as calm as possible!
Persephone: TLA stands above SOSA Henderson and proceeds to slap him on the side of his head, trying to get him up! TLA WITH ANOTHER SLAP TO THE SIDE OF SOSA’S HEAD! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE!
Rich Russillo: SOSA SLAPS THE SHIT OUT OF TLA OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!!
James Peters: It seems like TLA’s attempt with egging on the EAW Champion didn’t pan out the way he anticipated it! THAT SLAP FROM SOSA WAS SO HARD, IT KNOCKED TLA INTO A SEATED POSITION! NOW, SOSA IS TRYING TO GET HIMSELF TO HIS FEET! TLA GETS TO HIS FEET AS WELL AS HE THROWS A PUNCH TO SOSA! SOSA THROWS A PUNCH TO TLA! TLA WITH A PUNCH TO SOSA! SOSA WITH A PUNCH TO TLA! TLA! SOSA! TLA! SOSA! TLA! SOSA! SOSA! SOSA!
Persephone: SOSA Henderson rebounds himself off the ropes and connects with a rebound clothesline on TLA! TLA is knocked down as SOSA gets to his feet! He gets TLA by his arm before Irish whipping him towards the corner! SOSA bolts to TLA at the corner and manages to connect with a single leg corner dropkick! TLA staggers forward as SOSA manages to take him down with a jumping DDT! SOSA with the cover!
Rich Russillo: TLA GETS A SHOULDER UP! SOSA Henderson is looking a bit annoyed! He would love nothing more than to get this victory a week before Wicked Games! It would send a message to Ahren Fournier! SOSA manages to get TLA to his stomach and won’t you look at that? It seems like SOSA is trying to connect with a crossface? Is he looking to make TLA submit?
James Peters: NO! IT SEEMS LIKE TLA IS TRYING TO FIGHT THE MOVE! HE WANTS NO PART OF THE MOVE! HE IS TRYING TO SCRAMBLE HIMSELF! HE’S TRYING TO ESCAPE THE MOVE BY SHIFTING HIS BODY TO THE SIDE, BUT SOSA HAS THE LOCK OF THE CROSSFACE AROUND TLA’S EYES! TLA IS COMPLETELY BLINDED AT THE MOMENT! HE HAS NO WAY OF SEEING WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? IS TLA GOING TO BE FORCED TO SUBMIT TO THE EAW CHAMPION?!?!?
Persephone: What the hell?!?!? Look, who is on the apron!?!?
Rich Russillo: IT’S AHREN FOURNIER! THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR SOSA HENDERSON’S EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! HE’S TRYING TO GET THE REFEREE’S ATTENTION! THE REFEREE IS SCREAMING FOR AHREN TO STEP OFF THE APRON AND LEAVE RINGSIDE! THIS MATCH DOES NOT CONCERN HIM WHATSOEVER! SOSA IS FUMING AT THE MOMENT AS HE RELEASES THE CROSSFACE!
SOSA Henderson: (off-mic) Get the hell out of here! This shit doesn’t concern you!
Ahren Fournier: (off-mic) I just wanted to tell you something important, omg! It couldn’t wait!
SOSA Henderson: (off-mic) Just say it get the fuck outta here!
Ahren Fournier: (off-mic) Mhmmmm, okay! You’re….TRASH!!!!!!!
SOSA Henderson: (off-mic) Bitch, say that again —
James Peters: TLA, FROM BEHIND, ROLLS UP SOSA HENDERSON!!!!! AHREN FOURNIER JUMPS OFF THE APRON!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ plays through the speakers of the World 1 Theatre as TLA exits the ring! SOSA Henderson cannot believe that TLA manages to get an upset victory over him. It was something that he was not anticipating as he went to the referee to clarify that it was a three count and indeed, it is a three count. Ahren Fournier is on the bottom of the ramp, laughing at SOSA for losing the match.)
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…TLA!!!!!!!
James Peters: TLA GOT HIMSELF A VICTORY OVER THE CURRENT EAW CHAMPION!!!!!
Persephone: It was thanks to Ahren Fournier though. It’s not THAT impressive.
Rich Russillo: This is the momentum that TLA needed to head into his Barbed Wire Massacre match against Drake King next Saturday! It could be debated that SOSA would have gotten TLA’s number with that crossface, but Ahren Fournier couldn’t have made his presence felt at a more appropriate time! It was smart of TLA to capitalize on the opportunity! He could be considered for a future EAW Championship match in the future!
(SOSA Henderson is shaking his head in disbelief as he looks back at TLA, who is raising his own hand in victory! He uses his index finger and taps the side of his head, believing that he was a smart one for capitalizing on Ahren Fournier’s distraction. Ahren is nowhere to be seen now, probably in the back as SOSA turns around to get his title.)
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER BLASTS THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP TO THE SKULL OF SOSA HENDERSON!!!!!
(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ stops playing as the only sight is Ahren Fournier, looking at the EAW Championship. Then, he looks at SOSA Henderson holding on to his face after being blasted with the EAW Championship.)
Persephone: Man, Ahren really nailed SOSA with the title!
(Ahren Fournier raises the EAW Championship high in the air as the virtual crowd totally hates the sight of Ahren with the title.)
Rich Russillo: Is this sight right now what we could expect how the EAW Championship match will unfold?
James Peters: It seems like everyone is going to have to watch Wicked Games to find out!
(The last sight is of Ahren Fournier talking his shit, raising the EAW Championship above his head and standing above a fallen SOSA Henderson. Finally, Voltage fades to the commentary team.)
James Peters: Now ladies and gentlemen, before we go off air tonight.. Tonight marks the anniversary of the death of the late Brody Sparks. To say Brody Sparks is missed is a severe understatement. Brody Sparks was important both to this company and to the people that watched her compete. She was without a doubt a legend and an EAW icon, and as we close Voltage tonight we’d like to say that Brody Sparks may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. Rest in peace. Thank you, and goodnight everybody.
(The scene fades in with Brody Sparks doing her signature pose as she stands on the top of the ramp, ready to beat someone’s ass. You can see the look of determination on her face. She wanted nothing more than to prove that she was one of the best that this company has to offer.)
Ring Announcer: (VoiceOver) FROM BROCKTON, MASSACHUSETTS… ‘THE HYPNOTIC HERETIC’ … BRODY SPARKS!!!!!
(We begin to see a video package of Brody Sparks hitting some of her best wrestling moves from her denotation kick to her finisher ‘Sparks Fly’ to ‘Seeing Sparks’ to her submission move ‘Illumination.’ Each time that she’s hit one of these moves, she’s managed to successfully get the victory with her hand raised. The last shot is of her walking back up the ramp with her hand raised.)
Brody Sparks: (VoiceOver) It’s funny. You wouldn’t expect it from me, but I often find myself looking back at all of the moments in my life.
(It begins to flash pictures of Brody Sparks in her childhood as well as in middle school and high school, noting her athletic background in swimming, cheerleading, and gymnastics. Brody excelling in everything that she has been able to accomplish with all the awards and medals around her.)
Brody Sparks: (VoiceOver) Moments that made me, moments that broke me. All of the moments that had put a smile on my face, and the ones that easily ripped that smile off of my face.
(It highlights Brody Sparks’ moments that ‘made her’ consisting of winning the Specialists Champion at Road to Redemption in 2016. It shows matches throughout her reign such as her Three Stages of Hell Match, Inferno Match, and the infamous and controversial Blood Bucket Match. Despite the random matches and hardcore stipulations that she participated in, she embraced the challenge. She went out there and gave it everything that she had to offer. It also shows moments that ‘broke’ her like getting assaulted by Jacob Senn due to being associated with Zack Crash, losing her Specialists Championship at Pain for Pride X as well as being on the sidelines with an injured left eye.)
Brody Sparks: (VoiceOver) I often try to reflect to always remember where I had come from. My roots. Because without my roots, I would not have flourished into the woman you see today.
(It highlights Brody Sparks raising the Specialists Championship above her head, feeling as confident as ever. Brody begins to talk as her signature moves and getting the upper hand on her opponents is highlighted.)
Brody Sparks: (VoiceOver) Every direction, every turn, every move I have ever made from the day I was born until now, had fit like tiny pieces of a puzzle, all fitting together, to shape me into who I am. I always knew in my core who I was. I knew the person I could have become, I knew, but I had people continually doubting me. They never listened. When I came to this company, I came during a time where the women were growing at a fast rate. They were still around, but the division was no longer centered around Heart Break Gal, Kendra Shamez, and Cameron Ella Ava.
(It highlights Brody Sparks debut as a fresh face on Empire. Despite being considered a rookie around these parts, she had so much confidence and she knew that she was going to be a star one day. When she talks about eye candy, it pans to Brody’s time in OMERTA with her mentor Zack Crash and fellow Voltage Elitist, Terry Chambers.)
Brody Sparks: (in the confessional from 2017) I came with a naive outlook, that much I could admit, but underlying it all, I had confidence. I had a presence. I had something in me that was going to set me apart from everyone else. I was looked at like a nuisance, someone no one expected to see makes the impact that I had made. For a long time, I was nothing but eye candy. I was just there, floating around, telling everyone how great I was because I had always known, but to everyone else, I was all talk with nothing to back it up.
(It highlights Brody Sparks improving in each match that she takes a part of and proving to be a force to be reckoned with.)
Brody Sparks: (VoiceOver) I had to be that damn good so that they had no choice to see what I had already known. That I am Brody Sparks, and I was dominance in a tiny package, and that I was here to stay, and I was here to take over. I wasn’t here to join a generation ruled by Aria Jaxon and Cailin Dillon, but I was here to set my own path and simply have my own generation.
(Unfortunately, she is not here to have her own generation that she ruled with an iron fist, but she still is a remembered Elitist in this company for her hard work and dedication; however, her passing, did pave the way for so many talented women to be like Minerva, Kassidy Heart, Raven Roberts, Darcy May Morgan, Ms. Extreme, Andrea Valentine, Serena Bennett, etc to be able to break out of a certain mold that female wrestlers were to have and become something of themselves.)
Brody Sparks: (in confessional from 2017) This isn’t some inspirational, “you can do it” scenario that I’m trying to tell, so don’t grab your tissues ladies, please don’t feel inspired, it won’t be good for your health. This is more of a story. Handwritten by yours truly. The story of how one woman single-handedly will crush the dreams, and the hopes of other women, yet again, and trust me, this one is non-fiction.
Producer: (from behind the camera) What does the future hold in store for Brody Sparks?
Brody Sparks: I have so many things I want to accomplish. I just want to be an inspiration. I want for Elitists in the future to look up to me and remember my name, but one of the crazy dreams I have is to be in the Hall of Fame, but the world is not ready for that, but when they are, it’s going to be truly iconic.
(The little video ends. The hashtag in blue reads: #ThankYouBrody #TheSparkMaybeGoneButNeverForgotten.)
