(EAW intro plays.)
(As always, a highlight video from last week’s amazing episode of Voltage begins to play.)
(The highlight video begins by showing Charlie Marr basically crowning himself King of Elite already. He runs down his opponents for the upcoming free-per-view, and put himself over before Komatsu Ogawa would come in and interrupt him. The two men would go back and forth, with Komatsu challenging Charlie to a match. Charlie would finally accept, which gives us our main event for tonight. Speaking of Komatsu, he would team up with The Woogieman for the first match of the evening. The two would face New Breed Championship challengers, Zak Simmons and Shawn Sturgis, in a great opening contest. Simmons would end up pinning The Woogieman to win the match for his team. The second match of the night pitted SASS member, Sarah Price, against Veena Adams. Veena would talk a lot of shit before the match began, and it would lead to Sarah basically challenging Veena for her Voltage career. Veena accepted and less than a minute later, Sarah defeated Veena to send her packing.)
(The highlight reel continues.)
(The number one contender to the EAW Championship, Terry Chambers, faced the 24/7 Contract holder, Consuela Rose Ava in a rematch of sorts. The match would get spoiled by Consuela’s King of Elite opponent, Lars Grier, when he would hit the ring and attack Consuela. Terry would attempt to grab Lars in ‘Locked in Chambers’ but the crafty Lars would escape and retreat up the ramp. Voltage would continue on with Shortfuse PAKA providing commentary for the match between Jesse Barlow and PAKA’s rival, Korey Gaines. PAKA would distract Gaines towards the end of the match, which allowed Provencal to sneak up behind Gaines while the referee was out and attack him. Barlow would get the victory, and the feud between Gaines and PAKA would have another layer added to it. In terms of rivalries, the match between Joy Cassidy and Sierra Bradford would end up ruined by the Specialists Champion, Darcy May Morgan. Darcy would violently attack SASS and leave Sierra in a pool of blood. She would announce to everyone that at King of Elite she would defend her championship against Sierra and she would end up having the last laugh between the two.)
(The on-going tension between the Interwire Champion, Dr. Bethany Blue, and Ms. Extreme reached new heights. Dr. Blue and Nurse Goldstein would both be attacked by Ms. Extreme, who was hiding in a bathroom in their backstage office area. The two-on-one odds would eventually overwhelm Ms. Extreme, because Dr. Blue would get herself in position to stab Ms. Extreme in the neck with a syringe. She would have Nurse Goldstein strip Ms. Extreme of her clothing and after marking all the supposed ‘fat areas’ on Ms. Extreme’s body, Dr. Blue would have Nurse Goldstein remove the rest of Ms. Extreme’s clothing, leaving her naked, take her to the catering area, and lock her inside of a freezer.)
(The rest of the show featured two main event matches. EAW Champion, Andrea Valentine would face off against Lars Grier. The long awaited rematch between the two would deliver the battle the fans wanted to see. Both competitors gave the match their all and at one point the fight would spill to the outside of the ring. Lars would spear Andrea through the barricade and grab her, but before he could do anymore damage to the champion, Consuela would come out! Before she could get her hands on Lars and save Andrea, two people would attack her. Corvus members, Levi and Rath, would subdue Consuela and hold her up, allowing Lars to rip her in half with a devastating ‘Ravenbeak’. Andrea would groggily roll back into the ring during this time, but once she realized what was happening, she would try and make the save for her fellow Beating Heart. Terry would come out and work alongside his King of Elite opponent to take out the three Corvus members, but Lars, Levi, and Rath would leave through the crowd.)
(The second main event of the night would pit Rex McAllister against longtime rival, Chris Elite. As always, the match between these two men would be a match of the year candidate. With Raven Roberts defeating Chris’s tag team partner, Ahren Fournier, the previous night on Showdown, the stakes in the match were pretty high. Despite outside antics from Ahren and Raven, Rex would pick up a clean victory and leave The ILLIONAIRES with a lot to think about between now and King of Elite.)
(The highlight ends and Voltage fades inside the Fernando Buesa Arena in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. The sold-out crowd are on their feet and they’re cheering, waving their signs, and very excited to see what Voltage has in store for them tonight. “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami is playing and gold and white pyro is going off. When the smoke clears, the camera cuts right to the broadcast booth. Rich Russillo and James Peters are grinning, excited for tonight. They are wearing sports coats, slacks, and this week their T-shirts show a picture of Jake Smith with the word ‘Cuck’ written underneath of it.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, we are less than a week away from King of Elite and tonight, Terry Chambers and the EAW Champion, Andrea Valentine will sign the contract for their match!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme has asked for some time tonight, and I can’t wait to see what she has to say. In case the EAW Universe is wondering, Ms. Extreme was found inside the freezer before contracting hypothermia and guys, she was pissed. I shudder to think of what she’s doing to do to Dr. Bethany Blue come King of Elite, and I damn sure can’t wait to hear what she has to say tonight.
James Peters: The New Breed Champion, Justin Windgate, and the Specialists Champion, Darcy May Morgan, will be joining us tonight as SASS takes on Simmons and Sturgis in tag team action. Korey Gaines finds himself with a chance to get some revenge on Provencal for the sneak attack last week that cost him a victory against Jesse Barlow. Joy Cassidy looks to get a win over the man who is scheduled to compete for a shot at the New Breed Championship at Clash of Kingdoms, Jalyn Garcia.
Rich Russillo: And of course tonight’s main event will see Charlie Marr take on Komatsu Ogawa in a match that was set up last week when Komatsu challenged Charlie. When we come back from break, Talib Bari is going to host another episode of ‘Cloth Talk’ and I look forward to seeing what Charlie has to say! So stick around folks.
James Peters: We’ll be right back.
(Both members of the Voltage broadcast team salute like nerds and the show fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for the ID Channel’s hit show, ‘Terror in the Pacific.’ New episodes are about to start!)
(Cloth Talk opens up with enough EAW fanfare that it should be considered as a name for one of the FPVs. The set is immaculate with silver and gold, diamonds shining from almost every direction. There’s a pair of golden thrones to allow for the presence of royalty, as well as a red carpet leading from the back to where all of the Cloth Talking will be taking place. Lights are dimmed if only for the spotlight to be shone down upon Talib Bari as he stands in front of the thrones and holds up his golden microphone.)
Talib Bari: IT’S CLOTH TALK! WITH ME! TALIB BARI! COME GET SOME!
(The crowd absolutely explodes at the introduction of Cloth Talk by Talib Bari. He throws his hands up and they go even more insane. It takes a bit for the crowd to calm down enough that Talib Bari can use his golden microphone to speak again but he eventually does.)
Talib Bari: YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS! WE GOT ANOTHER ALL FLAME EAW EVENT JUST AROUND THE CORNER! THE KING OF ELITE 2020, BITCHES!
(The crowd loses their mind at the mention of this event. Talib loves every moment of it.)
Talib Bari: Now we all know that the King of Elite Tournament is coming to an end here. Very soon. And that means that the King of Elite finals are right around the corner! And with the King of Elite event being this damn close, I felt like a very special edition of Cloth Talk was needed. HOW Y’ALL FEEL ABOUT THAT?!
(If the crowd could get louder, they would.)
Talib Bari: So let’s not waste any more time because I’m sure my guests have a lot to say tonight! And I know we all want to hear what they have to say! Here they are, the King and Queen of EAW… Charlie and Jordie Marr!
(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta destroys the speakers as the curtains are pulled apart by a pair of in-costume jesters. They immediately bow, taking a knee, as the arrival of Charlie and Jordie Marr becomes apparent. Both stand just inside the curtains and look out over the immense EAW crowd. Charlie’s wearing an all-black suit, shirt and tie included. The suit is trimmed in gold, though. His shoes are pristine in their black and gold merger. Jordie stands next to him, in a curvature hugging gold number, the black trimming matching oppositely the attire of Charlie. Both of them revel at the moment long enough for the jewel-encrusted crown on each of their heads to be noticed. If anybody’s trying to see the Brand of their collective attire, they should give up because they obviously can’t afford it. Peasants.)
(Talib Bari steps back to make room as the King and Queen of EAW make their way down and around to the twin thrones. They each take a seat and King Charlie Marr holds his hand out to the side. One of those jesters from before runs up with a Royal Scepter Microphone and sets it softly in the King’s hand.)
Talib Bari: WELCOME! YOUR MAJESTIES!
King Charlie Marr: You’re a loud motherfucker, aren’t you?
Queen Jordie Marr: Turn that down. You’re in the presence of royalty.
(Talib Bari holds up a hand and nods in agreement a bit.)
Talib Bari: Fair enough, fair enough. I wanted to thank you both for coming down to Cloth Talk tonight. I know the EAW fans are excited to hear what you gotta’ say. Especially with you headed to the King of Elite Tournament alongside…
King Charlie Marr: No.
Talib Bari: What?
King Charlie Marr: You will not mention my name in the same breath as a couple of scared shitless fuckstains that stumbled their way into the ring with Greatness. So. Try your little hype train shit again but separate the real from the fake.
(Talib Bari takes a second to rethink his words and goes for it.)
Talib Bari: You, King Charlie Marr, will be gracing the King of Elite Finals with your royal presence!
Queen Jordie Marr: Hold.
(Talib Bari watches the hand that Jordie Marr is holding up. She’s got him cued up for at least ten seconds.)
Queen Jordie Marr: You may now continue.
Talib Bari: Also in the King of Elite Finals are Jamie O’Hara and The Visual Prophet!
(The crowd pops quickly at the mention of those two names. This earns them a swift and scathing glare from the King and Queen of EAW.)
Talib Bari: Now, tonight is about you. We’re here to talk to you. To the King! The floor is yours!
(King Charlie Marr raises his Royal Scepter Microphone to his lips and just holds it there for a brief moment before those lips curl up into a sinister smirk.)
King Charlie Marr: Mine. Interesting choice of words. I mean, it’s pretty damn clear that the floor is mine. Hell, EAW is mine. But if we want to get down to gold tacks because I’m a fucking King and don’t do brass, then we can go ahead and say right now that the King of Elite Tournament is mine. So that means peasants like Jamie O’Hara and The Visual Prophet are wastes of spaces that will be wasting my time. Time that I’d much rather spend ruling over EAW the way a King should. Now, with that being said, I feel that I should address my royal subjects here tonight and even speak a little bit to the sacrificial lambs being thrown to the slaughter that is the King of Elite Finals of which I, the only Lion, am involved in.
(Murmurs from the crowd cause King Charlie Marr to rise from his throne. He’s got more to say it seems.)
King Charlie Marr: I need you all to understand something. I’m on something I like to call a Revenge Tour. This is where I travel the vast lands of this world and I beat the ever-loving fuck out of anybody that I fucking feel like and any goddamn given time that I want to. Especially, those that have crossed my path before. Or taken things from me. Important things like MY world title. And believe me, I will be taking said title back before long. But! Starting off my Revenge Tour by taking the title of King of Elite is a very good place to start, don’t you think?
Queen Jordie Marr: Perfect place to start.
King Charlie Marr: Which means, as much as you all are going to hate to see it, I’m gonna’ have to kill your problematic faves. I’m gonna’ have to take O’Hara’s head and shove it up The Prophet’s ass because that’s the way he likes it. It’s not fair that these two cucked fucks have to endure the vicious punishment that should be reserved for my other enemies but this is what happens when you step onto my land. I am at fucking war and I have not even the slightest qualm about catching a couple more bodies. Every war needs a couple of casualties and these two fucks’ll do just fine.
Queen Jordie Marr: Nobody will miss them anyway.
King Charlie Marr: So here’s where it gets as ugly as a Visual Prophet photoshoot. Or as impossible as O’Hara the Explorah trying to find the Loose City of Avacunt. This is the part where everything these two fuckheads believe they have a shot at winning gets yanked out from underneath them. This is the part where King Charlie Marr proves that he has once again become the most dominant force in EAW. The part where subs like O’Hara and Prophet learn, first hand, that they shouldn’t throw rocks at the throne. Not while I’m sitting on it.
(King Charlie Marr makes is standing directly in front of his throne as he says that last bit before he turns towards Queen Jordie Marr.)
King Charlie Marr: What do you think? Have the people given us enough respect that I should gift them with what we have planned?
Queen Jordie Marr: I don’t think they deserve to breathe our same air, my love, but you are a benevolent king, are you not?
King Charlie Marr: That I am.
(Both Charlie and Jordie take a moment to chuckle at their little exchange. So proud of themselves at the moment.)
King Charlie Marr: As my first official act as King of Elite Answers Wrestling, I feel like I would like to do something nice for the people. How would you all like to see a King of Elite preview… right here tonight!
Talib Bari: OHHHHHH SHIT!
(The crowd boos a bit but there are also some murmurs. King Charlie Marr just stands there and waits. As if he’s giving them time to mull it over.)
King Charlie Marr: I’m being serious. Queen Jordie, tell them I’m being serious.
Queen Jordie Marr: He’s being 100% serious.
(The crowd continues their murmured hesitance.)
King Charlie Marr: Last chance. Do the people, that’s all of you in case you haven’t been paying attention, want to see a preview of King of Elite. Right here. Right now.
(It takes a little bit for the crowd to come around but they eventually start to cheer much to King Charlie and Queen Jordie’s delight.)
King Charlie Marr: Jamie O’Hara! Visual Prophet! Get your stupid asses out here! Let’s give the people what they want!
(The Royal Scepter Microphone is handed over to Queen Jordie as a bunch of people rush the ring to clear down the Cloth Talk set. The crowd is on the edge of their seats as King Charlie Marr reaches up to take off his crown… but then thinks better of it. A true King defends his kingdom no matter what he’s wearing.)
(The crowd waits as King Charlie Marr paces back and forth in the ring, awaiting the arrival of his King of Elite opponents.)
(Wait for it.)
(A little longer.)
(‘Ultimate Battle’ by ZENTA hits and the crowd goes absolutely nuts as Jamie O’Hara runs out of the back and onto the stage! Or… at least, that’s who he would be if he were a few feet taller. In fact, it’s a midget that’s been thrown into Jamie O’Hara’s attire with a drawn-on Sharpie beard. As the crowd starts their boo session, ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ by Queen hits and out runs The Visual Prophet… or waddles? This one too is a midget, complete with flowing frills and the whole nine.)
(The crowd is not happy but King Charlie Marr sells the seriousness of this match like fucking gold. He even straightens the crown on his head.)
(Baby O’Hara and The Littlest Prophet run hilariously down to the ring and slide inside… or try to. Baby O’Hara and The Littlest Prophet actually have to help each other get into the ring because they are small as fuck. King Charlie Marr backs up as his two opponents finally get themselves into the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Queen Jordie Marr: And there is the bell! Time for the King of EAW to destroy these fuckwits.
Talib Bari: Long live the King! YES SIR!
(Baby O’Hara rushes for King Charlie Marr but King Charlie Marr is ready for him. King Charlie Marr takes a couple of steps towards the rushing Baby O’Hara and fucking PUNTS the little person backward and right through the ropes! Baby O’Hara sails end over end and smashes right into the barricade! Who knows if Baby O’Hara is even still breathing?!)
Queen Jordie Marr: What an amazing move by King Charlie Marr! Dispatching Jamie O’Hara in record time!
Talib Bari: Run up and get punted up!
(The Littlest Prophet is next up and he doesn’t even look in the direction of the broken Baby O’Hara. Instead, he’s focused on King Charlie Marr. The Littlest Prophet attacks King Charlie Marr from the side and just starts punching away at his leg. King Charlie Marr doesn’t even flinch but he does take notice. King Charlie Marr reaches down to pick up The Littlest Prophet by the face and then proceeds to chokeslam him onto the mat. By the face.)
Talib Bari: Another one!
Talib Bari: That’s it! This one is over!
(King Charlie Marr steps on The Littlest Prophet’s body as Queen Jordie Marr climbs into the ring. She bends over and makes the count.)
(DING DING DING!)
(The bell rings and King Charlie Marr nudges The Littlest Prophet out of the ring, under that bottom rope and runs back to Queen Jordie. The two embrace and celebrate wildly much to the crowd’s chagrin.)
The Visual Prophet: Oh no baby, what is you doing!
(The crowd goes insane as The real Visual Prophet comes out onto the stage. Viz takes a moment to drink in the applause and the cheers before focusing his attention on Charlie. Viz brings his microphone up to his lips to speak as he makes his way to the ring.)
The Visual Prophet: Are you really about to make me expose you tonight, Charles? Hm? Is that what you want me to do? Because as every one of these fantastically fabulous Visual Prophet fans out here know… there is only one reason why anybody even knows your name right now. There’s only one reason why you even got to step out of the shadows and into the limelight on Voltage. There’s only one reason why you’re more than an afterthought even to this day. And that reason is me.
(The crowd pops to show their support for what Viz is laying down.)
The Visual Prophet: You know damn well that the only reason you ever had a rat’s ass of a chance to shine on Voltage is because Veena let me get drafted. You know, I know, everybody knows that as long as the Visual Prophet was making waves on Voltage that nobody, present company included, was going to fly higher than He. But you, Charles? You were a special brand of Ain’t Shit. You weren’t shit Pre-Viz and you only started to smell after the Prophet took his talents elsewhere. And let’s be crystal clear here, even that early run was pretty meh until Veena dug them claws in so we pretty much could say that without a li’l sumpin’ sumpin’ on his arm, Ol’ Charlie Charr ain’t shit.
(The Visual Prophet peels down his sunglasses for a moment to peek over the top of them at Charlie and Jordie standing in the ring.)
The Visual Prophet: Nobody likes reruns, Charlie. We gotta’ find you a new schtick, baby.
(The crowd laughs along as they catch up with what Viz is putting down. Charlie, Veena. Charlie, Jordie. Patterns.)
The Visual Prophet: But! We gonna’ go ahead and let the past die, Charles. We gonna’ look to the future. To King of Elite. Where, and you can quote me on this, as long as I have a drop of blood in my body, a breath of air in my lungs, or a beat in my heart, Charlie Marr won’t ever, ever, ever-ever-ever-ever-ever!, be King of Elite. That is a moment that belongs to me. It was stolen from me before and I’ve never forgotten. And now I have the chance to do what I should’ve done so long ago. And that is to take my place as the true King of Elite. My time has come! The light is back and shining in the only direction that matters. The Visual Prophet WILL be the King of Elite. The King of EAW…
(The Visual Prophet steps right up to Charlie Marr and the two stare each other down with mere centimeters between them.)
The Visual Prophet: And there ain’t a damn thing you, that Burger King crown on your head or anybody else can do about it.
(Somebody begs to differ and that somebody is Jamie O’Hara! Jamie O’Hara runs for the ring, not saying a word and without his music. O’Hara races down to the ring and slides inside. The Visual Prophet spins around and O’Hara lays him out with In Excelsis! Charlie Marr rushes at O’Hara but Jamie’s on fire and flattens Charlie to the mat with In Excelsis! Back to back running knee strikes! Jamie turns to Jordie and snatches that dumb Scepter Microphone out of her hand and stands over both his fallen King of Elite opponents.)
Jamie O’Hara: Wrong. I will be the next King of Elite you fuckin’ cunts.
(Jamie O’Hara snaps that scepter microphone in half and drops it to the mat. The crowd goes absolutely fucking nuts.)
(The scene fades into a promotional ad for King of Elite.)
(A promotional ad for King of Elite airs highlighting the feud between Voltage’s Consuela Rose Ava and Lars Grier. Consuela and Lars will meet inside the ring for the 24/7 contract and settle their differences when King of Elite comes to you from The Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy on February 8th, 2020, only on free-per-view.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella Braxton.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following is a tag team match and it is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: First, allow me to introduce our special guest commentators! Introducing first, he is the EAW New Breed Champion, JUSTIN WINDGATE!!
(‘Go Off’ by Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo, and Travis Scott hits and the crowd begins cheering as Justin Windgate walks out to the stage. He has the New Breed Championship around his waist as he begins high fiving fans on his way down to the commentary table.)
Bella Braxton: Also a special guest commentator for this match, please welcome the EAW Specialists Champion, DARCY MAY MORGAN!
(‘Spotlight Savior’ by Iggy Azalea follows and the crowd begins to boo as Darcy May Morgan also makes her way to the commentary desk. She has the Specialists Championship on her shoulder, and she ignores the booing fans as she joins Justin Windgate, Rich Russillo, and James Peters.)
James Peters: Justin, Darcy, nice to have you two here with us.
Darcy May Morgan: Mhm.
Justin Windgate: Glad to be here. Should be fun seeing this match up close.
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake hits as Sierra Bradford makes her way out to the stage. She poses at the stage before waiting until ‘Land of the Innocent’ by Feathers follows. The crowd continues cheering as Sarah Price joins Sierra Bradford at the stage, and the two make their way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… The team of SARAH AND SIERRA, SUPERGIRLS!!
Justin Windgate: You know, I actually think that name is pretty cool.
Darcy May Morgan: :skip: how?
James Peters: Anyways, as we all know Sierra Bradford will be challenging Darcy May Morgan at King of Elite for her Specialists Championship-
Darcy May Morgan: “And she would want to get all the momentum she could get after what Darcy did last week”. You were gonna say something like that, right? She could get all the momentum she wants, she won’t beat me at King of Elite.
Rich Russillo: Can’t fully say I disagree to be honest, but back to this match, I do think team SASS has a fair shot at winning this. Here comes their opponents though.
(Afterwards, ‘Beautiful People’ by Marilyn Manson hits to a mixed reaction as Shawn Sturgis slowly walks out to the stage. After a short while of waiting, ‘King of the World’ by Porcelain Black hits and the crowd completely begins to boo as Zak Simmons walks out yo the stage, and both men walk down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… The team of SHAWN STURGIS, AND THE BIG BAK BHAMPION, ZAK SIMMONS!!
Justin Windgate: My opponents at King of Elite. Should be pretty fun seeing what they’ve got.
James Peters: It’s Interesting to see how well they’ve been working together after their old feud, but look where we are now. These two are looking to get a tag team win here and I think it’s quite possible that they get it.
Rich Russillo: Well they’re both definitely bigger than team SASS. Of course we all know size doesn’t always mean anything. Guess we’re gonna have to wait and see how this goes.
Justin Windgate: I think you guys forgot to mention. Their performance tonight, it’ll definitely show whether I’m facing a Shawn and Zak on top of their game, or a complacent Shawn and Zak that don’t know what they’re getting themselves into. Let’s start this match!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And now this tag team match is underway! Team SASS vs the team of Shawn Sturgis and Zak Simmons! It looks like Sturgis and Sarah Price are the ones choosing to start the match, and the two immediately go to lock up! Sturgis has the upper hand so far as he manages to get Sarah into a headlock, but Sarah is quickly able to push Shawn into the ropes, forcing him to release the submission! Shawn bouncing off the ropes, right into Sarah’s grasp as she puts Shawn into a headlock of her own!
Rich Russillo: Shawn lifting Sarah up attempting a back suplex- but Sarah manages to land on her feet! Sarah attempting a step up enzuigiri, but Shawn ducks the kick! Shawn grabbing Sarah from behind and he attempts a german suplex, but once again Sarah lands on her feet! Shawn realizing this and he immediately charges towards Sarah- BUT SARAH BACKS UP AND PULLS THE ROPES DOWN! Shawn Sturgis just flew right over the top rope to the outside of the ring! Sarah though, it looks like she’s not finished there! She notices Shawn getting back to his feet, and she runs the ropes! DROPKICK THROUGH THE ROPES! What a move by Sarah!
James Peters: The crowd is showing a lot of love for that dropkick, and it looks like Sarah still isn’t finished just yet! Sarah rolling Shawn back into the ring, and now she climbs up to the top rope! Shawn getting back to his feet, AND SARAH DIVES- BUT SHE GETS NOBODY! Sarah rolling back onto her feet as Shawn moved out of the way- BUT SHAWN MANAGES TO LAY HER OUT WITH A CLOTHESLINE AS SARAH CHARGED TOWARDS HIM! Sarah was nearly turned inside out with that one, and now there’s the tag to Zak Simmons!
Rich Russillo: Shawn picking Sarah up, AND HE THROWS HER INTO SIMMONS, WHO DROPS HER WITH A BIG BOOT! Simmons going for the cover as Sturgis exits the ring!
Rich Russillo: SARAH KICKS OUT! Simmons now with a rear chinlock though, and now Sarah is struggling! Sierra wants the tag, but at the moment Sarah has no way of getting to her! Sarah is trying to fight out of it, but seeing as Zak is the much larger competitor she’s clearly having a difficult time! It’s clear he’s trying to weaken Sarah but at this rate what if he makes her tap out already?
James Peters: It looks like we’re not gonna have to worry about that possibility! Sierra and the crowd is clapping in support of Sarah, and somehow Sarah is slowly getting back up! Sarah slowly manages to get back to her feet- AND SHE MANAGES TO HIT A STUNNER TO GET OUT OF THE CHINLOCK! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE GETTING BACK UP, BUT NOW SARAH IRISH WHIPS ZAK INTO THE ROPES! DROPKICK BY SARAH, BUT ZAK DOESN’T FALL! SARAH RUNNING THE ROPES HERSELF, AND THERE’S ANOTHER DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: HE’S STILL NOT DOWN THOUGH! SARAH RUNNING THE ROPES ONCE MORE- BUT ZAK POPS HER UP- WAIT NO! SARAH LEAPS OVER ZAK! ZAK TURNING AROUND, RIGHT INTO A JUMPING ENZUIGIRI- WAIT! ZAK MANAGES TO GRAB SARAH BY THE LEG BEFORE THE ENZUIGIRI COULD CONNECT, AND THERE’S A STOMP TO THE MIDSECTION! ONCE AGAIN STURGIS AND SIMMONS MANAGED TO GET CONTROL OF THIS MATCH!
Darcy May Morgan: Funny, the one time Sierra’s help is welcomed, she’s nowhere to be seen.
Justin Windgate: In all fairness, she hasn’t really had the chance to. Simmons is all over Sarah right now.
Darcy May Morgan: Right..
James Peters: Simmons with Sarah on the ground- AND HE TRIES TO GRAB HER LEG ONCE AGAIN BUT SARAH MANAGES TO KICK SIMMONS AWAY! SIMMONS THOUGH, GOING RIGHT BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE AS HE ATTEMPTS A GERMAN SUPLEX OF HIS OWN- BUT THIS TIME SARAH NAILS HIM WITH REPEATED ELBOWS! SARAH BACKING INTO THE CORNER, AND THERE’S THE TAG! SARAH CHARGING TOWARDS ZAK, AND THERE’S A DROP TOE HOLD! SARAH NOW ENTERING THE RING AND RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF ZAK’S HEAD AS HE GOT TO A KNEE!
Rich Russillo: What a tag team maneuver! Simmons is getting back to his feet so Sierra immediately runs the ropes, AND DROPS HIM ONCE AGAIN WITH A HURRICANRANA! ZAK ROLLING OUT OF THE RING, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SIERRA IS AIMING TO GO FOR SOMETHING SIMILAR TO WHAT SARAH DID EARLIER! SIERRA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A SUICIDE- NO! ZAK WITH AN ELBOW TO SIERRA’S FACE JUST BEFORE SHE COULD FLY THROUGH THOSE ROPES! ZAK ENTERING THE RING, AND NOW HE LIFTS SIERRA UP- BUT SIERRA IS ELBOWING HIM IN THE FACE! SIERRA IS HITTING ZAK SIMMONS WITH REPEATED ELBOWS WHILE UP IN THAT FIREMAN’S CARRY, AND NOW SHE MANAGES TO ESCAPE HIS HOLD! PELE KICK!!
James Peters: Sierra just hit a great pele kick causing Simmons to stumble back, but that just gave Sturgis the opportunity to tag himself in! Sierra quickly getting back to her feet, and her and Sturgis begin to circle the ring- before going right at each other! Sturgis attempted a lariat there but Sierra ducked it! THUNDERBIRD- NO! STURGIS DUCKED IT, AND NOW HE ROLLS SIERRA INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN- BUT SIERRA IMMEDIATELY ROLLS OUT OF IT! PENALTY KICK- NO! STURGIS DUCKS UNDER IT AND NOW HE GRABS SIERRA BY THE FOOT! ANKLE LOCK BY STURGIS!
Rich Russillo: What an ankle lock! This isn’t something you see very often by Shawn Sturgis, Sierra may be in trouble!
Darcy May Morgan: See how easy that was for him?
Justin Windgate: I wouldn’t really call that one easy. He just found an opportunity to strike.
Darcy May Morgan: Sierra clearly leaves too many openings to strike then. Jeez, and she wonders why I chose to roll her up instead of beating her fairly or whatever.
Justin Windgate: I don’t really get your bitterness towards Sierra, but to be honest I don’t really care. I’m sure you know how I feel about her opponents tonight.
James Peters: SIERRA MANAGES TO KICK STURGIS AWAY! Sierra quickly gets back up as Sturgis charges towards her- AND STURGIS GOES FOR A RUNNING ENZUIGIRI BUT IT’S DUCKED BY SIERRA! SIERRA RUNNING THE ROPES AS STURGIS GETS UP TO ONE KNEE, ELECTRIC FEEL! SIERRA GOING FOR THE COVER NOW AS STURGIS IS DOWN!
James Peters: SIMMONS BROKE UP THE PIN! THE REFEREE TELLING ZAK TO GET OUT OF THE RING- BUT HERE COMES SARAH TAKING HIM OUT OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Darcy May Morgan: I didn’t think she had that in her.
Rich Russillo: Sierra getting back to her feet and she looks at both Zak Simmons and Sarah Price! Sierra getting to her feet and it looks like her and Sarah reached some sort of agreement, AND NOW THEY BOTH RUN THE ROPES! DOUBLE SUICIDE DIVE, TAKING OUT ZAK SIMMONS! Team SASS has been working great tonight, and at this rate they may be on the fast track to a victory tonight!
Justin Windgate: They’re doing better than Shawn and Zak. Maybe I’ll be just fine at King of Elite.
James Peters: Sierra sliding back into the ring after that amazing double suicide dive- STUNNER!! SHAWN MANAGED TO HIT SIERRA WITH A STUNNER OUT OF NOWHERE, AND SIERRA IS OUT! SHAWN GOING FOR THE COVER, AND THIS ONE MAY BE OVER AND DONE WITH!
James Peters: SIERRA MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! Shawn just surprised everyone in the arena hitting that stunner after being taken out not too long ago, but even so Sierra is still somehow in this match! I’m sure that’s not what Shawn likes to hear, but now he needs to find a way to finish this one before Team SASS could find their way back into this match!
Darcy May Morgan: God, that name is stupid.
Rich Russillo: Shawn pushing Sierra out onto the apron before lifting her through the middle rope, and I think it’s clear what he’s going for! NIGHT MARE- NO! SIERRA MANAGES TO CLIMB INTO THE RING AT THE LAST SECOND AND RAM SHAWN INTO HER CORNER! SARAH TAGGING HERSELF IN, AND NOW SIERRA HOLDS SHAWN IN PLACE AS SARAH BACKS INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! SARAH NOW CHARGING IN, AND THERE’S A FOREARM SMASH! SARAH NOW GRABBING SHAWN OUT OF THE CORNER, AND THERE’S A STANDING SHIRANUI- WAIT NO! SHAWN MANAGES TO HOLD HER IN POSITION, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA GO FOR A POWERSLAM- BUT NO! PLOT TWIST!!
James Peters: SARAH JUST HIT THE PLOT TWIST! THAT RIPCORD KNEE CONNECTS BUT SHE’S NOT DONE YET! SARAH RUNNING THE ROPES AS SHAWN IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! ENCHANTMENT BREAKER!! THERE’S THE RUNNING KNEE BY SARAH, AND NOW SHE’S GOING FOR THE COVER TO END THIS MATCH!
Justin Windgate: Love to see it.
James Peters: SHAWN STURGIS MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! THIS MATCH IS NOT OVER JUST YET, SHAWN STURGIS IS STILL SOMEHOW FIGHTING HERE TONIGHT!
Justin Windgate: Oh. Can’t say I expected that. He’s more resilient than I thought.
Rich Russillo: Sarah slowly backing into the corner, and she’s waiting for Sturgis to get back up.. Sturgis slowly complying, and I think this may just be the end! BITTERSWEET ENDING- NO! SHAWN MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! SHAWN JUMPING OVER TO HIS CORNER, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO SIMMONS! SARAH CHARGING RIGHT OVER TO ZAK- BUT ZAK DROPS HER WITH A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE BEFORE HE EVEN GETS INTO THE RING! ZAK NOW PICKING SARAH UP, AND THERE’S A SIDEWALK SLAM! COVER BY SIMMONS!
Rich Russillo: SARAH IS STILL ALIVE!
James Peters: Zak slowly dragging Sarah back up by her hair- AND THERE’S AN ENZUIGIRI BY SARAH! THAT WASN’T ENOUGH TO DROP HIM, BUT SARAH NOW IS CRAWLING TOWARDS HER CORNER! ZAK NOTICES THOUGH AND IMMEDIATELY HE GRABS SARAH BY HER FOOT AND PULLS HER BACK UP! ZAK NOW, WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Zak is just decimating Sarah here, things aren’t looking good! Zak lifting Sarah up once more, AND THERE’S A SECOND BELLY TO- WHAT!? NO! SARAH LANDS ON HER FEET, AND NOW SHE DIVES TO HER OWN CORNER!
Justin Windgate: I’ll be back in a few.
Rich Russillo: TAG TO SIERRA! Sarah and Sierra now running the ropes as Zak gets back up- BUT ZAK LAYS BOTH OF THEM OUT WITH A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! BOTH SIERRA AND SARAH WERE JUST LAID OUT BY ZAK SIMMONS, AND NOW ZAK IS GOING TO PIN- Wait a second, huh? What’s Justin doing?
James Peters: Justin is on the apron, and it looks like he’s trying to get into the ring! Zak is looking at Justin with an aggravated look on his face, AND NOW HE CHARGES TOWARDS HIM- BUT JUSTIN JUMPS OFF THE APRON! I don’t know what that was about, but it looks like Zak is gonna turn his attention back towards- BITTERSWEET ENDING!! SARAH JUST HIT ZAK SIMMONS WITH THAT HUGE SUPERKICK, AND LOOK! SIERRA FROM THE TOP ROPE!!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA MIST!! THE MOONSAULT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP CONNECTS, AND NOW SIERRA IS GOING FOR THE COVER! WHAT A TAG TEAM COMBINATION BY THESE TWO!! THIS ONE IS OVER!
Darcy May Morgan: Really Justin..?
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners… Sierra and Sarah, SUPERGIRLS!!!
James Peters: What a great match by these two teams! All four competitors tonight did amazing, and- wait, Darcy? Darcy what are you- OH MY GOD! DARCY IS GOING RIGHT AFTER SIERRA, AND SHE’S JUST PUMMELING HER RIGHT NOW! SARAH PULLING DARCY OFF OF HER, AND NOW DARCY IS TRYING TO FIGHT SARAH AS WELL! IT LOOKS LIKE JUSTIN IS TAKING THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET IN ON THE ACTION TOO AS HE GOES AFTER SHAWN STURGIS, WHO GOT IN THE RING TO CHECK ON ZAK!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA IS BACK UP AND NOW BOTH SARAH AND SIERRA ARE FIGHTING OFF DARCY, MEANWHILE IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE BEGINNING TO SEE A SIMILAR SCENARIO WITH JUSTIN AND STURGIS AS ZAK SIMMONS IS GETTING BACK UP! IT LOOKS LIKE DARCY AND JUSTIN TRIED TO GET AN EDGE OVER THEIR OPPONENTS BUT NOW IT’S BACKFIRING ON THEM!
James Peters: SARAH AND SIERRA SEND DARCY OVER THE TOP ROPE, AND LOOK, SIMMONS AND STURGIS MANAGE TO DO THE SAME TO WINDGATE! DARCY AND JUSTIN WERE BOTH JUST TAKEN OUT, WILL WE BE SEEING THE COMPETITORS IN THE RING STAND TALL AT KING OF ELITE!?
(‘Hey Superstar’ plays as the four competitors stand inside the ring, looking down at the two Champions, Darcy May Morgan and Justin Windgate, who are both down outside the ring.)
(Voltage fades into the backstage area.)
(The locker room shows that Jesse Barlow is sitting here on one of the benches. He looks tired and a little off without Hannah Marin on his arm. Tis a strange feeling to not have your biggest supporter by your side night in and night out. Jesse runs a hand through his hair and finally pushes up from the bench to stand.)
(There’s a soft knock on the locker room door that pulls Jesse’s attention in that direction. The door is pushed open slightly before manicured nails peek around the corner and a vision that Barlow has not seen in quite some time is revealed.)
It’s Hannah Marin.)
Hannah Marin: Jesse!
(It is as if Hannah hasn’t seen Jesse in months with the way she shoves through the door and into the locker room. She launches herself at Jesse and wraps her arms around him. Jesse’s face shows relief, as well, but much more subdued and controlled.)
Jesse Barlow: Hannah. Welcome home.
Hannah Marin: It’s been ages. A moment away from you is a lifetime that I don’t want to live.
Jesse Barlow: A long time. Longer than I would’ve liked.
Hannah Marin: I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. I don’t know how much more of Life With Woogie I can withstand.
Jesse Barlow: Is he that bad?
Hannah Marin: Anyone that keeps me away from you is the worst human being on the planet.
(Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin share a moment in which they stare into each other’s eyes. Hannah seems to calm down the longer she looks at Jesse.)
Jesse Barlow: That was the last time, okay? No more. It doesn’t matter what else he says, we’re done with this. Okay?
Hannah Marin: Um.
Jesse Barlow: … Um? What is um?
(Hannah Marin takes a reluctant step backward and reaches into her pocket. She produces an envelope. It’s black with gold glitter sprinkled all over it. The words: The Woogieman Provideth are written across the front of it.)
Hannah Marin: This is… from…
Jesse Barlow: The Woogieman.
(It almost sounds like a horror movie when he says it like that.)
Hannah Marin: I’m supposed to give this to you.
(Hannah is hesitant to hand over the envelope and even Jesse is a bit reluctant to take it. There’s a bit of awkward limbo with the envelope for a moment before Jesse finally pulls it from Hannah’s firm grip.)
Jesse Barlow: We’re going to be fine.
Hannah Marin: I know. I trust you.
(She doesn’t know. She trusts Jesse. Not Woogieman.)
Jesse Barlow: Do you know what’s in here?
(Jesse holds up the envelope.)
Hannah Marin: I swear on everything we have that I did not open that envelope. That belongs to you. It could hold the answers to everything you seek. I would not dare taint that moment for you.
Jesse Barlow: Did he say anything? At all? About this?
(Jesse waves the envelope around a bit. Some of the glitter falls off.)
Hannah Marin: Not a word to me about it. Not a single word.
(Jesse nods and looks back down at the envelope in his hands. He stares at it, the obnoxious lettering and glitter and almost sneers at the inanimate object. Though, he also looks torn. The debate inside burning and fueling his expression as he doesn’t know if he wants to even open it or not. Hannah can see the look of internal struggle within and reaches out a hand to place it on the hand of Jesse Barlow that is holding the envelope.)
Hannah Marin: If it’s too much… I can do this for you. I haven’t been able to be there for you, Jesse. I can do this.
(Jesse stares at Hannah’s hand for a long moment before looking up at her face. Hannah steps closer to him, wrapping her fingers around the envelope but she doesn’t pull. Jesse hesitates… and finally nods once, giving Hannah permission to take the envelope.)
Jesse Barlow: Do it.
(Hannah hesitates as she peels the envelope from Jesse’s fingers. She holds onto it for a moment and looks at Jesse as if to double-check with him. He looks hesitant again and almost reaches for the envelope but stops himself.)
Hannah Marin: You sure?
Jesse Barlow: … Do it.
(Hannah Marin takes a moment before ripping the envelope open. She lets the envelope itself fall to the floor while taking the paper and reading it over. As she reads the paper, she almost stumbles. The look on her face crawls towards shock and is almost immediately followed by anger. Jesse sees all of this happening on Hannah’s face and can’t even stop himself from ripping the paper from Hannah’s hands.)
Jesse Barlow: THE FUCK?!
(Jesse’s reaction to the paper in his hands can be described as nothing short of fucking FLABBERGASTED.)
Hannah Marin: Jesse I…
Jesse Barlow: NO! Did you see what this said?!
Hannah Marin: I read it. I…
Jesse Barlow: I don’t believe this shit! There is no FUCKING way my father SOLD me to the fucking Luciano crime family! For a fucking drug debt?! Really?!
Hannah Marin: Jesse calm down.
(Barlow is furious and also that’s the understatement of the month right there. Barlow rips the paper in half and throws the pieces into the air before shoving past Hannah and stomping towards the exit.)
Jesse Barlow: WOOGIEMAN!
(Hannah Marin trails after the angry Jesse Barlow as they exit the locker room.)
Hannah Marin: Jesse wait!
(Catering. The location of The Woogieman. He stands tall and looking down his nose at the feast that has been laid out before him. The Woogieman, of course, is using one of the many stagehands to fix The Woogieman a plate. No words needed just a mighty point at various edible options gets the stagehand to prepare The Woogieman’s food. The footsteps of Jesse Barlow alert The Woogieman to an incoming presence. Also, there’s this…)
Jesse Barlow: WOOGIE!
(The Woogieman smirks as he shoos the stagehand off to make more food and turns around to raise a hand up in Jesse Barlow’s face. As he has done countless times before.)
The Woogieman: Ah-ah. Not whi–
(The Woogieman’s Shades are knocked clean off his face by the fist of Jesse Barlow! Barlow has no patience for The Woogieman’s ego right now and he’s laying into him with fists of furiousness. Barlow rains down a series of fists onto The Woogieman’s face, knocking him down into the catering table. Hannah watches from the sidelines with a shocked expression on her face. She’s clearly worried about Jesse’s safety. Or if Jesse’s going to go too far.)
Jesse Barlow: LIAR!
(Jesse Barlow grabs The Woogieman by the back of the head and shoves The Woogieman’s face into the punch bowl. The intent here is very fucking clear. Jesse Barlow is going to drown The Woogieman! The Woogieman’s attempts to fight back have been tempered by this surprise attack and thus The Woogieman finds himself struggling to breathe in anything but punch.)
Hannah Marin: Jesse!
(And here comes security. They come from around the corner like a swarm of bees and they jump into the fray between Jesse Barlow and The Woogieman. It takes about four guys to pull Barlow off The Woogieman and another two to make sure The Woogieman is still breathing, even though The Woogieman’s face is dripping with the punch.)
(Security holds Jesse Barlow back but that doesn’t stop him from trying to get to The Woogieman again.)
Jesse Barlow: Stop this shit! Stop fucking with me, Woogieman! There will be hell to pay! Some real fucking dire consequences!
(Security forms a wall between The Woogieman and Jesse Barlow. When Jesse realizes they aren’t going to let him get back to The Woogieman he grabs Hannah by the arm and stomps away.)
(Voltage cuts to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Speedy Cash and their new installment loans!)
(The camera fades back into a pan around the arena before ‘Thunderstruck’ by ACDC plays to cheers as Korey Gaines comes out to the stage already ready in in-ring attire for his match. He hypes up the crowd with a smirk before throwing his arms in the air and making his way to the ring interacting with the crowd along the way)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome… KOREY GAINES!!!!!!!!!!
(Korey enters the ring and goes to the top rope raising his hands in the air before jumping down and asking for a microphone as he stands square in the center of the ring. He looks around with a smile before beginning to speak)
Korey Gaines: HELLO SPAIN! Before I cut right to the action and do the work like I always do I have a few trade of words to say before I do anything, if you could bare with me for a moment. Last week did not go well for me and for good reason. PAKA was out doing I’m sure ear deafening commentary before he went into the ring and took the win that I rightfully was going to earn right away from me. And if it wasn’t any worse his brother in law stuck his nose in it as well for insult to injury, and that set me different. I’ve come out here to say that I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough of everything that PAKA has done and I’m not going to stand for this stupid marching around he tries to do. So I’ll cut a deal with you PAKA, you better be sitting cozy listening to what I say backstage. Because after I beat up your brother in law, Provencal and show HIM why you don’t mess with Korey Gaines, I want you next. And no, not just some petty match that can be swept under the rug quickly. What’s after this set of free-per-views for Voltage? Ah yes, I challenge you to a match at SHOCK VALUE!
(The crowd cheers at the challenge put out by Korey Gaines. He looks like he’s about to continue talking as he still has a lot on his mind but before he can do that ‘Breakin’ Outta Hell’ by Airbourne plays as the crowd’s cheers waste no time quickly changing to boos as PAKA and Provencal come out. PAKA has a serious face on as Provencal also has a stern face on shaking his head as they both begin to make their way to the ring. They both enter the ring as Provencal hands a mic to PAKA as he stares at Korey with intent before holding up the microphone and beginning to speak)
PAKA: You have failed me Korey. You have failed to show a good reason as to why you are on the level of me, you have continued to shun yourself away and show yourself as a puny man. But you have shown your colors right? The student learns, yet you are not adept yet. You will forever not be, because you are frail, and weak. You have been playing the cowardice card calling me out from the sidelines, now you are forced to stare me right in the eyes and say it to my face.
Korey Gaines: You know that’s funny because if I remember correctly, I was going to win my match last week against Jesse Barlow last week wasn’t I? The reason I lost was because you stuck your head in and cost me the win because you couldn’t bare to see me win. You robbed me of the win PAKA, you deprived me of the win I truly needed. You talked all this talk last week about how you wanted me to destroy Barlow right? Then why couldn’t you just have stayed in your goddamn seat and just shut up. How hard would that be PAKA? How hard would it be to do that, or can you not even comprehend that like everything else?
PAKA: You want to know something I’m capable of doing Korey? That’s beating you, I can beat you square in the ring and believe it or not, you know that as well. I am fully capable of placing your shoulders to the mat and putting you to sleep.
Korey Gaines: Yes especially with the help of your little brother in law.
(Provencal in the background is seen gritting his teeth as he looks at Korey Gaines but is too busy warming up for his match to say anything, he’s here to win. PAKA continues to speak)
PAKA: You want your match at Shock Value? Alright then Korey, I’ll accept your match, and I want everything you, Korey Gaines has in the tank. I want Korey to bring out his best in that match and show the world why the ‘Aerial Wonder’ lives up to his name. I want you to throw the entire kitchen sink at me!
Korey Gaines: Oh believe me I have no problem with that believe it or not. But I actually have a special match in mind at Shock Value for the both of us.
(PAKA thinks for a moment as he takes a glance at Provencal thinking about the offer Korey just put out)
PAKA: You have peaked my interest.
Korey Gaines: I want this match to be a ‘Blackout Match’!
PAKA: A Blackout what?
Korey Gaines: I’m not done yet dear PAKA. Now the objective of the match is pretty simple to behold even for you at this point. The objective is to throw your opponent off the stage over there into a pile of electrical equipment, really adds the SHOCK to Shock Value right?
(Provencal stops warming up as he shakes his head in disdain he takes the mic from PAKA and begins to speak)
Provencal: Is that really all you have? Is this really all you have for the great PAKA? If you simply try that he will rag tag and destroy you more than I already plan to! I am not impressed monsieur Gaines.
PAKA: Provencal please… This will certainly make this match even more interesting. Consider your challenge accepted Korey.
(Korey gives a smirk as he looks around)
Rich Russillo: OH! PAKA JUST SPIT IN THE FACE OF GAINES! GAINES IS STUNNED AS HE FALLS BACKWARDS TO THE ROPES BUT FALLS RIGHT BACK INTO PAKA! PALM STRIKE RIGHT ON THE BRIDGE OF HIS NOSE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Well ladies and gentlemen it looks like this match is seemingly underway while we’re at it. PAKA quickly rolling out of the ring as Provencal is wasting no time going for the pin on Korey before he can even do anything in this match!
Rich Russillo: GAINES KICKS OUT! Provencal quickly turning him around and slamming his fist right into the face of Gaines. Provencal has seemingly shown a new type of attitude as of late and now he’s putting that into full effect today. Provencal backing up as he grabs Gaines by the arm and irish whips him into the corner. Provencal beginning to run towards him as Gaines is just about to get his bearings on the situation. PROVENCAL RAMMING HIS SHOULDER RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF GAINES! Gaines quickly pushing him away but Provencal isn’t done as he runs towards him. ATOMIC DROP TAKES GAINES DOWN!
James Peters: With that attack before the match by PAKA it’s been all Provencal in this match as it seems Gaines can’t find a way to get back into this one! But it’s early in the match and I’m sure later on I’m sure Gaines is going to turn this one around. Gaines pulling himself up and leaning against the ropes as Provencal grabs him and brings him to the center of the ring turning him around. GERMAN SUPLEX! NO! GAINES LANDING ON HIS FEET AS HE RETREATS AWAY AND FALLS INTO THE CORNER! Provencal is stunned as Gaines runs rights towards him. JUMPING KNEE TAKES PROVENCAL RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND!
RIch Russillo: This is where Gaines really starts to thrive. Provencal quickly getting up as he runs towards Gaines again. GAINES WITH A SUPERKICK RIGHT TO THE JAW OF PROVENCAL SENDING HIM DOWN QUICKLY ONCE MORE! Provencal grabbing a hold of the ropes as Gaines grabs him and brings him over to the center of the ring. SNAP SUPLEX BY GAINES SENDING PROVENCAL DOWN TO THE GROUND QUICKLY! Provencal still getting up as he quickly throws a punch right to the face of Gaines catching him by surprise! Provencal with a barrage of punches on Gaines as he slowly is forced down onto one knee. Gaines shoving back as he quickly runs to Provencal looking to take him down with ease. BUT PROVENCAL WITH A BIG CHOP RIGHT TO HIS CHEST STOPPING HIM! Provencal quickly grabbing him before he can do anything. PROVENCAL WITH MIRACULOUS STRENGTH TAKING GAINES DOWN WITH AN ARM DRAG!
James Peters: Gaines is seemingly in shock about how the Frenchman is fighting back. Gaines quickly getting up as he swings a punch at Provencal which connects! Provencal stumbles back as he tries to throw a punch of his own but Gaines ducks under and grabs him from behind! BACK SUPLEX AS PROVENCAL LANDS RIGHT ON HIS NECK! Provencal rolling up to a knee as Gaines runs towards him. But Provencal quickly takes him down with a drop toe hold! Gaines rolling up to his feet as he attempts a clothesline but Provencal ducks under! NECKBREAKER TAKING GAINES DOWN ONCE MORE! Provencal has the heart to fight tonight as Gaines is still managing to slowly bring himself up to his feet in the process. Provencal with a kick right to the gut of Gaines! BUT GAINES WITH A BIG EUROPEAN UPPERCUT COMPLETELY FLOORING PROVENCAL!
Rich Russillo: Provencal getting up to his feet stunned as Gaines sees opportunity. Kick! Kick! Kick! SUPERKICK PARTY! Provencal is down as Gaines is quickly climbing up to the top rope looking to execute something big to finish this. WAIT! IT’S PAKA! PAKA is on the apron yelling at Gaines looking to distract him as Gaines jumps off the top rope and begins to yell at him. LOOK PROVENCAL IS UP! SHADES OF LAST WEEK AS PROVENCAL IS SLOWLY SNEAKING UP TO HIM! OH! GAINES WAS READY AS HE NAILS PROVENCAL WITH A SUPERKICK! PAKA beginning to yell again! BUT GAINES WITH A SUPERKICK TO HIM AS WELL SENDING HIM TUMBLING OFF THE APRON! Gaines climbing up to the top rope recuperating looking to make things right! OKLAHOMA TWISTER!
James Peters: NOBODIES HOME! Provencal managed to roll out of the way as Gaines is left in shock and unknowing of what Provencal has in his back pocket in terms of surprises! LA PETIT PAQUET! GAINES ROLLED UP OUT OF NOWHERE AS PROVENCAL WENT FOR THE PIN!
Rich Russillo: KOREY BARELY MANAGING TO KICK OUT! Provencal slamming the mat in frustration as he expected Gaines to stay down but he quickly gets up as Gaines gets up at the same time. Provencal running to the ropes and to Gaines at full speed before Gaines can react! BUT GAINES WITH A QUICK ARM DRAG TAKING PROVENCAL DOWN! Provencal quickly getting up and running towards Gaines once more as Gaines is calculated and ready! ANOTHER ARM DRAG TAKES PROVENCAL DOWN! Provencal is up once more as he swings at Gaines which connects! But Gaines firing one back as he sends Provencal down to a knee! Gaines lifting Provencal up into a powerbomb position lifting him up what is he thinking! MY GOD! GAINES HAS JUST THROWN PROVENCAL OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: Provencal tumbles down as he slowly gets up to his feet as Gaines runs to the ropes oh dear! SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE TAKING PROVENCAL BACK DOWN! Gaines bringing Provencal back up and rolling him into the ring as Provencal gets up stunned! Gaines grabbing Provencal but Provencal pushing him away. Clothesline by Provencal pushing him back! Provencal going for a clothesline of his own but Gaines ducks under! PELE KICK RIGHT TO THE FACE OF PROVENCAL! Provencal stumbling back but he still runs at Gaines. GAINES WITH A JUMPING KNEE RIGHT TO PROVENCAL TAKING HIM DOWN!
Rich Russillo: Gaines bringing Provencal up as he lifts him into the air! But Provencal reversing before Gaines can do any damage! Provencal with a kick right to the kneecap of Gaines sending him down but Gaines quickly back up to his feet as he attempts a kick! It connects which pushes Provencal back as Gaines runs towards him. PROVENCAL WITH A RUNNING HIP ATTACK TAKING GAINES DOWN! Provencal rolls through as he quickly brings Gaines up I think he sees something big in store here. SURPRISE! NO! GAINES REVERSES THE CAPTURE SUPLEX ATTEMPT BEFORE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN! GAINES WITH THE DETONATION KICK! ROUNDHOUSE KICK CONNECTS TAKING PROVENCAL DOWN AS GAINES QUICKLY HEADS UP TO THE TOP ROPE! OKIE DOKIE! 450 SPLASH CONNECTS AS GAINES QUICKLY GOES FOR THE PIN!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Thunderstruck’ plays up as Korey Gaines gets up onto a knee. He has a face of relief on his face as he gets to his feet and the Ref raises his hand in victory)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen is here is your winner, KOREY GAINES!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Surprisingly good match that was just in store for us as Korey Gaines comes out with the win!
Rich Russillo: Provencal was clearly the star of this match showing athleticism we have never seen before from the Frenchman. If he surely keeps this attitude up it wont be long till he hits the big leagues! As for PAKA I’m sure Provencal’s loss will give him more motivation heading into Shock Value which I am excited to see!
(PAKA rolls into the ring helping Provencal up as he encounters Korey Gaines. They stare down each other for a moment before PAKA turns away and rolls out of the ring along with Provencal leaving Gaines to continue celebrating.)
(The camera cuts to Rich and James, who are shaking their heads over what just unfolded.)
James Peters: Well one thing’s for sure, this thing between Korey Gaines and Shortfuse PAKA will finally come to an end at Shock Value.
Rich Russillo: A Blackout Match :wow:
James Peters: It’s definitely going to be interesting.
Rich Russillo: You know something else that is interesting, James?
James Peters: What’s that, Rich?
Rich Russillo: The fact that earlier this week, Captain Charisma traveled to Madrid to meet with former EAW World Champion, Malcolm Jones.
James Peters: :oh:
(Voltage fades into a previous taped segment.)
( SCREEN BAR – EARLIER THIS WEEK – THE WESTIN PALACE MADRID )
(The scene opens up inside La Rotonda Restaurant where Voltage Commissioner, Captain Charisma, is seen seated behind a table. A beer glass sits on the table while he scrolls through his phone. A few seconds pass and the maitre d walks up to the table.)
Maitre D: Mr. Daniels, your guest has arrived.
(Captain Charisma smirks and stands up, and the camera shot widens. Behind the maitre d is none other than the reigning King of Elite, Malcolm Jones. The two men shake hands and Malcolm takes his seat. A waiter walks over to their table and takes Malcolm’s drink order before scurrying off.)
Captain Charisma: Thanks for meeting me.
Malcolm Jones: I’m a businessman and at the end of the day, you wanna offer me a deal.
Captain Charisma: I see you’re not in the mood to make small talk.
Malcolm Jones: Who has time for that? I’m traveling the world with my girl on EAW’s dime, collecting checks and doing very little work. I could see Charlie’s cowardly actions as a hindrance, but that money keeps flowing. People stay begging to see MJ on TV and they buying the merch, making the signs, and chanting my name at shows. Shit like that isn’t not lost on me, Matt. The question is, what are you here to offer me?
Captain Charisma: Well, EAW has a show coming up, Clash of Kingdoms…
Malcolm Jones: :mjgrin: Another Saudi show with blood money on the line. Go on.
(Captain Charisma somehow refrains from rolling his eyes.)
Captain Charisma: Clash of Kingdoms. As you are aware, I’m sure, Clash of Kingdoms is the week after King of Elite and as soon as that event is over, Marr is heading to New Zealand and Australia to promote EAW’s May shows in those two countries. He’s not going to be anywhere near Qatar.
(The waiter returns and sits a glass of Henny down in front of Malcolm.)
Malcolm Jones: So you wanna take advantage of the situation and add some star power to an otherwise boring ass event full of bitches who ain’t on my level?
(Captain Charisma laughs in spite of himself. Malcolm’s confidence has always been one of his greatest attributes, and why he’s a top Elitist and one of the best in the industry today.)
Captain Charisma: I’ll keep it real with you. EAW.com conducted a poll last week or the week before, asking the EAW Universe what their dream matches are. There were several potential matches listed such as Drake King versus Jamie O’Hara, Cameron Ella Ava versus Minerva, The ILLIONAIRES versus The Liquid Swords, and so on. But do you know what match actually won this poll?
(Malcolm chugs down his Henny and sits the glass back down on the table.)
Malcolm Jones: I bet you’re gunna tell me.
Captain Charisma: :mjgrin: Malcolm Jones versus Rex McAllister.
Malcolm Jones: So Black Panther versus Rex McSwaglesster? The people wanna see a verbal and physical murder I guess.
Captain Charisma: Rex is a two-time world champion and a future Hall of Famer. He is one of the very best wrestlers in the world.
Malcolm Jones: You stay having that dude’s dick in your mouth. The fuck you want from me, Matt? You ain’t gotta sell me on having some lop-sided match with Raven’s simp of a husband. It won’t be much of a challenge for yours truly, but fuck. I can’t remember the last time someone actually made me second guess myself or truly made me break a sweat. Can’t nobody in EAW actually hold a candle to me because I done beat them all. You wanting to throw Vanilla Rex at me is only gunna serve one purpose and that’s to bury your third best Elitist behind myself and Andrea PAWGentine, of course.
Captain Charisma: What you assume is going to be a burial, is something I see as a Match of the Year candidate. One thing you have right is the fact you and Rex are two of the very best. I have always prided myself on putting together the most competitive matches that I can, and Voltage has built its reputation under me as being the most competitive brand. Our men and women raise their level every time they step inside the ring and face off against each other, and at Clash of Kingdoms I want to see Rex McAllister versus Malcolm Jones.
Malcolm Jones: Just book the match, damn. I said you ain’t gotta sell me. But here’s what I want from you, Matt. This bullshit with Charlie Marr’s gotta stop. As much as I love fuckin’ my bitch in every country across the world, I still got more shit I wanna do inside the ring. Fueling the hatred of the naysayers, doubters, and the people who hate on me for keepin’ it real and stayin’ true to myself remains my primary source of motivation and as long as I keep winning and racking up the achievements, they’ll keep on cryin’. I love a pussy ass bitch who cries, unable to handle the heat I be packin’. If people did the smart thing and kept my name out their mouth, perhaps I’d go about my business in a different way.
(Malcolm laughs at the very notion of that.)
Malcolm Jones: Nah. Fuck that because Imma always be me, but people would make things a lot easier on themselves if they shut the fuck up and accepted that I’m currently the biggest draw this company has. I don’t gotta be booked for people to speak on me. I’m in their heads, and that shit is hilarious to me. You need to get that damn bozo in check because my patience is only gunna stretch so far before it gets to be to thin and just snaps completely. Once that happens, we’re not gunna be able to go back. I’m owed a rematch for the EAW Championship, and more than that, I owe Charlie Marr the fuckin’ beating of a lifetime.
(Captain Charisma sighs and sits back in his seat.)
Captain Charisma: Marr’s ducked every meeting that I’ve tried to schedule to fix this situation. There’s only so much I can do, but he threatens to take legal action every single time. Voltage has been through a lot this season, and before you even say it, I know that most of it has to do with Charlie. I’ll get the restraining order dropped as soon as I can.
Malcolm Jones: Alright, my guy. You do that because time is ticking.
(The waiter returns to their table to take their order, but Malcolm pushes himself back from the table and pulls his wallet out. He tosses a few hundred Euro on the table, which is way more than his drink and CC’s beer could ever cost, and a smirk crosses his face.)
Malcolm Jones: And I don’t like my time getting wasted.
(Malcolm walks off leaving Captain Charisma alone at the table. The Voltage Commissioner sighs and rubs his temples, wondering what he’s going to do to settle the situation between Marr and Jones once and for all.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for The People’s Court. See Judge Marilyn Milian preside over cases and rule in either the plaintiff or the defendant’s favor :wow:.)
(Voltage returns and the show cuts to the backstage area. The engaged tag team known as Fire and Ice are seen in an undisclosed location inside the arena. They are in the middle of a joint photoshoot, posing together and both are wearing the brand new Fire and Ice T-shirt that is available at EAW Shopzone over their respective ring gear. Raven tosses her shiny, silvery hair off her shoulder, grips Rex’s arm, and smiles into the camera. With that last shot, the photographer claps his hands.)
Photographer: That’s a wrap. These shots are pure fire. Raven, it was a pleasure working with you again. Rex, it was nice to finally meet you.
(Rex and Raven grin at one another and walk off the set.)
Raven Roberts: You are the best, Lewis. Thank you for coming out.
Rex McAllister: Raven speaks very highly of you, and it was nice to finally meet you in person.
(Raven embraces the photographer, whose name is apparently Lewis, and then Rex shakes the other man’s hand.)
Lewis: Trust me. I would fly across the world for a chance to capture one of my favorite muses.
(Raven looks at Rex, who gives her a nod.)
Raven Roberts: Well… I’m glad you said that because there’s something we want to ask you. I’m not going to lie. At the moment, Rex and I don’t have a wedding date or a location. Our wedding venue was the victim of an unexplained fire last week and there’s no real timetable on when or if it’ll be rebuilt. But whenever we do nail down a date and new location, we were wondering if you would be our photographer? I completely understand if you can’t because we don’t have a date and it would be unfair to ask you to keep your schedule open… but…
Lewis: Absolutely no buts! It would be an honor and a privilege to work your wedding. It doesn’t matter when it happens or where. I will clear my schedule. I got you.
(Raven heaves a sigh of relief, and gives Lewis another quick hug.)
Raven Roberts: Thank you! I’m beyond thrilled.
(The three make small talk for a moment going over a few little details such as Raven’s color scheme, the flowers, some teasing about the wedding dress. Then Lewis poses a question.)
Lewis: Have you two looked at other venues?
Rex McAllister: We have, but the problem is we don’t want to wait to have our wedding. We set our date for March 9th, which is a couple of days after Shock Value, and Ray had her heart set on getting married in this chapel on Pinney Beach in Saint Kitts. We don’t really want to push the date back, and the beach itself isn’t available for weddings. That’s why they had the chapel. So we find ourselves stuck between a rock and a hard place, because our back-up locations are either booked up, or won’t be able to accomodate our entire wedding party and guest list at the last minute.
(Raven sighs and runs her fingers through her hair.)
Raven Roberts: This comes at the worst possible time because obviously Rex and I have other things to worry about. We have King of Elite, and now apparently the two of us will have matches at Clash of Kingdoms. Your match with Malcolm Jones hasn’t been officially announced, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time.
Rex McAllister: I’m not sweating it. Our paths were bound to cross sooner rather than later, and you know me, Ray. I don’t back down from a fight. Our future is certain. We will be husband and wife, but when that happens is a good question. But one thing you and I both know is that no matter what happens in our personal life, our professional lives aren’t going to be impacted and we will remain rock solid.
???: Ahhh, so you have heard.
(The trio turn and see Captain Charisma walking up to them.)
Captain Charisma: I wanted to tell you before it was made public, but I’ve been wrapped up in meetings all day. We’ve been busy finalizing the details of both shows, and as you both know Shock Value is right around the corner.
Rex McAllister: I’m aware and like I told Raven, it was a match that was going to happen sooner or later. I’ll be ready, just like always. Malcolm will do what he always does and that’s talk a bunch of shit with no real substance behind it. He won’t have anything to say that I haven’t heard before, but right now, the two of us aren’t looking ahead to Clash of Kingdoms. We’re focused on King of Elite and securing ourselves a shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships.
Captain Charisma: Fire and Ice are long overdue for this opportunity and I know you guys are going to make the most of it. Look, there’s another reason I sought you out.
Raven Roberts: What’s that?
Captain Charisma: I can’t even begin to imagine how stressful it’s been for both of you when to comes to having to rework your wedding plans.
Raven Roberts: It’s not ideal, but we are going to make sure it happens one way or another.
Captain Charisma: Let me ask you this. I know both of you have said you don’t want to push the date back, but what if you moved it up?
(Rex and Raven exchange looks with one another.)
Rex McAllister: What do you mean?
Captain Charisma: Raven, I know you said in your interview with Sofia that an in-ring wedding wasn’t really your thing, but if you guys want, you are more than welcome to exchange your vows in front of the EAW Universe at Shock Value. The Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City isn’t some picturesque seaside chapel in Saint Kitts, but you two got engaged in an arena. You could always tie the knot in one.
(Rex and Raven looked at one another again, and this time they shared startled looks. It was true. Neither member of Fire and Ice had wanted an in-ring wedding. They had wanted to keep their moment private and exclusive to friends, family, and of course themselves. But the recent turn of events had definitely forced the couple to look at other options.)
Raven Roberts: I don’t know…
(Rex turns to Raven and he shrugs his shoulders.)
Rex McAllister: Ray, it’s a venue that’s big enough for everyone and can accommodate all of us at the last minute. I don’t we’re going to get that private, intimate ceremony we want unless we move the date back…
(Raven bites down on her bottom lip, clearly torn on whether or not she wants to share her special day.)
Raven Roberts: I don’t want that.
Rex McAllister: Neither do I. I know it’s not what we want, but maybe it’s what we should have been looking at the whole time. If not for EAW, would we have ever found each other? I can’t answer that, but the EAW Universe has been behind Fire and Ice since day one. I don’t mind sharing our wedding with everyone, as long as you don’t mind and it’s something you won’t have any regrets about.
(Raven is silent for a moment because she hasn’t always had the best relationship with the EAW Universe. At one point, she was the most hated woman in the company and had very few redeeming qualities. But when Rex came along, everything changed. He was her champion, the one person in her corner no matter what, and it was because of him that she began to open her eyes and see the other side of the business she had refused to previously look at. The EAW Universe had rallied behind Raven thanks to Rex, and it was because of them that Raven had grown as a person and a competitor, and had matured before their very eyes. In a lot of ways, they were kind of responsible for Fire and Ice as well. They were the ones shipping Ravex, and making signs for them. The love and support they had given the two Elitists during the Grand Prix tournament had touched Raven’s heart at the time.)
Rex McAllister (Smiling): What are you thinking?
(Rex already knows where Raven’s mind is and she looks up at him, and returns his smile with one of her own.)
Raven Roberts: I think Shock Value would be perfect. Let’s share the day.
(Captain Charisma grins as Rex and Raven embrace one another, the weight of the world lifted from their shoulders. Lewis snaps a few candid shots of the couple, knowing that his next big gig was now set for March 7th.)
(Voltage fades to the ringside area.)
(When the scene switches, Rich and James are heard talking in the background as the camera focuses in on Bella.)
Rich Russillo: Holy shit! Shock Value is going to have a wedding! Rex and Raven’s wedding! :wow:
James Peters: Don’t you just love the fact that Shock Value, which will no doubt rival Blood Sport in terms of blood, violence, and gore, is going to feature the sweetest and most romantic thing two people could ever go through? :wow:
Rich Russillo: :mjgrin:
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME TO THE RING THE 24/7 CONTRACT HOLDER… CONSUELA ROSE AVA!
(The crowd erupts as “We Appreciate Power” by Grimes begins to blast across the PA system.)
Rich Russillo: Speaking of violence and blood, it was announced earlier today via EAW.com that the match for the 24/7 Contract at King of Elite is going to be Falls Count Anywhere.
James Peters: So if Lars can spear Consuela through the barricades again, he can pin her right then and there and take that contract for himself.
Rich Russillo: I’m not sure if anyone wants to see Lars Grier end up with that kind of power, James. These last few weeks have really shown that Lars isn’t the same Elitist he was a year or so ago. He’s changed and the Corvus are dangerous people. We can’t really be sure what their end game is and honestly, I don’t want to find out.
(As Consuela makes her way to the ring, the camera focuses in on her face. The smile she typically wears has been replaced with a look of focus mixed with some anger. Once ‘The Perfectionist’ makes it inside the ring, she takes the microphone from Bella and waits for her music to die down.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I’m not going to lie. Last week pissed me off. Road to Redemption pissed me off. Everything involving Lars Grier at the moment pisses me off. I think it’s really pathetic that Elitist after Elitist after Elitist has decided to come for me and for my 24/7 Contract. That piece of paper is a symbol of my hard work and no one else’s. I outlasted and outsmarted everyone inside that battle royal back at Pain for Pride in order to win it. The hot topic of debate for months now has been ‘when is Consuela going to cash in’ or ‘what title is Consuela going to go after’. After awhile, that gets repetitive, but I get it. When people look at Consuela Rose Ava, they see a woman who is unlike anyone else in her family. They see a woman who has struggled, wore her emotions on her sleeve from time to time, and who tucked her tail between her legs and walked away when things got too tough. I have addressed my absence numerous times, and I did what I had to do. That time off gave me a chance to reflect, contemplate, train, and learn to love this sport once again. I came back with one goal in mind and that was to become a champion. I won the Specialists Championship and when Andrea defeated me for it, I gave myself a chance to think about it, instead of diving head first back into something.
Consuela Rose Ava: I learned from my time off. I gave my mind and my emotions a chance to process my championship reign and appreciate it for what it was. I’m secure with my place in EAW history, because I am a three-time Specialists Champion. I moved on and set my sights on Pain for Pride and the 24/7 Battle Royal. I did what no other women has been able to do before and that was win this contract and give myself an opportunity to win whatever title I want here. Some people work their entire careers trying to win any championship and MY contract is going to give me a chance to win my fourth. That’s the beauty of that piece of paper. It’s an open book. The expiration date is the day BEFORE Pain for Pride 13 starts. I literally have months left to use it, and that should put everyone on notice, because I’ll tell you one thing. I damn sure won’t let Lars Grier or the fucking Corvus take this contract from me at King of Elite.
(The crowd pops huge from the decisive statement from Consuela.)
Consuela Rose Ava: If there is one person who doesn’t deserve to get his hands on my contract, it’s Lars. He makes me sick and I know he thinks he is going to have the advantage once he strolls down to the ring next weekend, but I am not afraid. I refuse to be afraid and I want Lars to know that. I want to say it to his face and I want him to come out here. Now.
James Peters: :damn: Consuela just called out Lars, Rich! Is she crazy?!
Rich Russillo: I think Consuela is tired of being pushed around and being seen as a weak target. How many times this season have we heard people question Consuela and her competitive spirit? So many people have accused her of holding onto that contract because she’s afraid of failure.
(Inside the ring, Consuela is pacing. She is waiting for Lars to come out to the ring and the crowd is growing more anxious by the minute.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Where ya at, Lars? I’m giving you free reign to come down to this ring and see me face to face before King of Elite. Are you afraid to come out here because my back isn’t turned? Because I haven’t been through a grueling match that’s left me at less than 100 percent? You can bring the Corvus with you. You bring the whole fucking Corvus out if you wish.
(That’s when the lights in the arena go out and purple mist begins to fill the pathway. A blood curdling scream is heard that sends the entire arena gasping. A single white spotlight shines down on the ring which illuminates Consuela. She looks annoyed at all of this and is looking around, checking to make sure no one is behind her. The microphone is clutched in her hands like a weapon, and she is definitely ready to fight should Lars or The Corvus try to attack her.)
The Voice of Bel: Be careful what you wish for, Consuela Rose Ava, for He is listening. This entire time, ever since Road to Redemption, He has been watching. He has been waiting for his opportunity to strike, but you will never see Him coming. He can be as small as the most insignificant molecule or as gargantuan as the iridescent constellations. His material never changes; His skin is darker than the obsidian ocean above, constantly shifting and molting with every second like a new genesis. Cruel teeth line themselves on the inside of His unbeating heart and along His other ghastly limbages. His center is an never-ending, spiralling composition of flesh, mud, bone, and dark ooze – the only incandescence emanating from his lone amethyst eye, which is filled with more burning hatred than the bitterest of moons. He has no mouth. . .for if he did, he would scream, and worlds would shatter. Oh Consuela, be careful what you wish for. For He is inhumane, barbaric, and nothing more than a savage. For weeks, months, and for a year He has waited. He has bided his time. He has picked his moment. He is here.
(The spotlight goes out and “CARION IS (2nd Version)” by LOVEcraft begins to blast through out the arena. The spotlight that was just on Consuela now shines on the stage and very slowly Carion appears.)
James Peters: Oh dear Gawd…
Rich Russillo: Holy shit…
(Carion walks out wearing a mask that has one eerie, pulsating purple eye. He stands on the stage, and no one really knows how to react to what they’re seeing. He takes several deep breaths and raises his hands in the air. The spotlight that had been on in the ring cuts on and Consuela is seen standing there, looking down the ramp at Carion, and she seems to be a bit startled.)
James Peters: I’m not sure if this is what Consuela was expecting when she called Lars down to the ring.
Rich Russillo: Well this damn sure isn’t what I was expecting…
(Carion’s theme fades away and after a moment, the spotlights fade away as well. There is nothing but pure silence in the arena until Consuela lets out a chilling scream. The lights immediately come up and standing in the middle of the ring, covered in what appears to be blood from head to toe, is Consuela. Murmurs ripple through the crowd and when everyone looks to the stage, they notice Carion is gone.)
The Voice of Bel: Oh, Consuela. Be careful what you wish for, for He did not come to play around….
(The camera closes in on Consuela who looks shell-shocked at the moment, looking like something out of a horror movie with all the blood that is on her, and that sends Voltage to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Dunkin’ Donuts dark roast coffee with espresso shot. The perfect drink for those who just want to sleep but have too much to do.)
(Voltage returns and miraculously the ring has been cleaned up as best it can after the incident with Consuela and Carion only moments ago. Bella steps forward.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is set for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…
(What Happens If I Can’t Check My Myspace When We Get There?’ by Attack, Attack! blasts throughout the arena, as WildHeart Jalyn Garcia appears on stage)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Sacramento, California, weighing in at 150 pounds… Jalyn Garcia!!!
(The crowd reacts strongly in his favor as Jalyn Garcia makes his way to the ring)
Rich Russillo: Let me tell you something James. Jalyn Garcia has been very clear about his state of mind going into this match. He has a clear target in his match at Clash of Kingdoms and Joy Cassidy is just, and I quote, “a speed bump”.
James Peters: To Jalyn Garcia, tonight’s match is all about momentum. He wants to keep his momentum going with a strong and decisive win over a woman who has defeated a lot of very talented opponents ever since she debuted here in EAW.
(Jalyn Garcia salutes the crowd as his music fades out)
(“Desire” by Meg Myers blasts through the speakers as Joy Cassidy makes her way to the stage. The crowd reacts strongly to her entrance with heavy boos)
James Peters: These people are incredibly disrespectful towards the Reincarnation of Aphrodite. Is it really her fault that she is more beautiful, intelligent and successful than all of the people in the arena tonight?
Rich Russillo: We know Jalyn Garcia is a fan favourite so maybe that’s one of the reasons why the EAW fans in attendance tonight don’t seem too happy right now. But trust me when I tell you: Joy Cassidy has always been a synonym of great matches and high impact shows so I am sure she will deliver a great match tonight just like she always does.
(Joy Cassidy enters the ring and glares at Jalyn Garcia with a disgusted look on her face. She then takes off her Jacket as her theme song fades out)
(The referee signals the timekeeper to ring the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: And the match is on! Jalyn Garcia and Joy Cassidy lock up right in the middle of the ring. Joy manages to wrestle Jalyn down to the mat, she has him in a side headlock. Jalyn Garcia is lightning quick though and he escapes her hold with a kick up! Just like that he is back to his feet and Joy Cassidy can’t believe it! Jalyn Garcia looks down on her with a smirk on his face, as Joy gets back up as well.
James Peters: The two go for the lock up once again but this time around Joy Cassidy immediately hits Jalyn with a harsh kick to the gut instead. So much for a test of strength there! Joy with a handful of hair now is yelling incomprehensible gibberish is to her opponent!
Rich Russillo: Jalyn slaps her! Oh my God! I could hear the thud from here! Joy Cassidy stumbles back as Jalyn Garcia charges in… Shoulder Block! Joy falls down to the mat but quickly gets back up! Another shoulder block from Jalyn Garcia! This time Joy is left stunned on the ground… Jalyn bounces off the ropes and KNEE DROP! He got all of that! Right on the mush!
James Peters: See this is why Jalyn Garcia is such a Menace to the Society. How dare he try to ruin the pretty face of the Incarnation of Aphrodite? This is just disrespectful!
Rich Russillo: Joy Cassidy rolls out of the ring as the referee interjects himself between Jalyn Garcia and the ropes, preventing him from following up. Joy Cassidy is taking a breather at ringside as the fans are growing restless. She has to figure out a way to contain WildHeart!
James Peters: Oh don’t worry about that. If there’s one thing we have learnt about Joy Cassidy it’s that she is as crafty as they come. She will find a way to get in control of the match. Just wait and see. I got my money on her.
Rich Russillo: Joy Cassidy crawls back inside the ring, sliding underneath the bottom rope as the referee does his best to keep Jalyn Garcia at bay. Joy changes in once again but Jalyn ducks underneath, she bounces off the ropes and goes for yet another clothesline… this time she gets caught! DRAGON SUPLEX! Right in the middle of the ring! The cover!
Rich Russillo: Joy Cassidy EASILY kicks out of that one! That was way too early for a pin attempt!
James Peters: You can say that Rich! Now Joy is wisely rolling underneath the ropes to try and get some separation between her and her opponent. That’s a smart move! The referee does his best to keep Jalyn Garcia away from her… WAIT! JOY JUST POKED Jalyn Garcia in the eye while the ref was busy restraining him! He didn’t see! Now Jalyn is blinded!
Rich Russillo: Joy Cassidy with no remorse is quick to capitalize on her move with a stiff kick to the gut that has Jalyn collapsing to his knees. Joy wraps her legs around his neck… OCTOPUS HOLD!!! It’s locked in right in the middle of the ring! Jalyn Garcia has nowhere to go!
James Peters: The referee is asking WildHeart if he wants to give up or not. Definitely a precarious situation for him! Joy Cassidy turned things around in a heartbeat! Is he going to tap?
Rich Russillo: Jalyn Garcia POWERS through the Octopus hold! He gets back to his feet as Joy Cassidy is still wrapped around him! What is he going to do to get out of the hold!? Jalyn manages to get Joy’s leg away from his neck and connects with a SIDEWALK SLAM!!! He survived!
James Peters: But he is not able to follow up! Both the competitors are now laying on the mat as the referee begins to count to 10. Joy Cassidy wisely uses the ropes as leverage, while WildHeart Jalyn Garcia is still gasping for air on the ground. Joy closes in on him once more… he grabs him by the air… NO! A QUICK SCHOOL BOY PIN! Out of nowhere!
Rich Russillo: Kickout! Joy Cassidy kicks out at two! Jalyn tried to steal one here but The Killer Queen managed to survive!
James Peters: Now Joy Cassidy charges in again… BICYCLE KNE— NO! Jalyn got out of the way just in time! WildHeart connects with a sick kick to Joy’s gut… He bounces off the ropes… SPIKE HURRICANRANA!!! He got all of that one! The cover!!!
Rich Russillo: Joy Cassidy kicks out again! What is it going to take to put her away! Wait! What is Jalyn Garcia thinking here? He got something in mind… he is going to climb the turnbuckle! Are we going to see his NATURAL INSTINCTS?!
James Peters: Jalyn takes it to the sky and… nobody’s home! Joy Cassidy was just playing possum! She got out of the way just in time as Jalyn hits the mat hard! Joy Cassidy is going for Evil Within yet again… her patented Knee Strike! Jalyn gets up to his feet… HE DODGED IT AGAIN!!! This time he connects with SHOCK ‘N’ AWE! His rolling cutter! Joy Cassidy is out like a light!
Rich Russillo: Jalyn soaks in the crowd’s reaction as he climbs the turnbuckle yet again! This time… NATURAL INSTINCTS!!! The frog splash connects!!! The cover…
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here’s your winner… “WildHeart” Jalyn Garcia!
Rich Russillo: Ok look. Jalyn Garcia taught us a very important lesson here tonight: if at first you don’t succeed, all you have to do is try again.
James Peters: Wait! That didn’t work for Joy Cassidy! She missed her Knee Strike twice!
Rich Russillo: Mmm…. Doesn’t matter! You get what I’m saying! This guy, Jalyn Garcia, he is a true warrior. He showed us that if you are resilient and strong willed you can get to the victory even when the situation seems desperate.
James Peters: Truly a fundamental win for Jalyn Garcia here tonight as he kept the promise he made earlier this week and he kept his momentum strong going into Clash of Kingdoms.
(We cut to a commercial for King of Elite, the upcoming EAW FPV.)
(Another King of Elite promotional add airs, showcasing the three finalists who will compete for the title of King. See Charlie Marr, Jamie O’Hara, and The Visual Prophet square off in what will no doubt be an instant Match of the Year candidate.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the backstage area. The location is unknown, but what the viewers see is Ms. Extreme sitting on a discarded piece of equipment, and she is staring directly into the camera. She wears a pair of ripped black skinny jeans, a cropped ‘Beating Hearts of Voltage’ shirt, black leather jacket, and combat boots. The expression on Ms. Extreme’s face is not hard to read. She’s determined. The Red Queen is determined to end the Interwire Championship reign of Dr. Bethany Blue. The back of Ms. Extreme’s combat boots strike the equipment box and that’s the only noise that’s heard. After a few seconds of this, she finally starts speaking.)
Ms. Extreme: It didn’t come as a shock to me when I got to the building tonight and found out that Dr. Bethany Blue was not here. Apparently she’s flown to China to help with the Coronavirus outbreak. Hopefully she wears a mask, because I want that bitch healthy and to have no excuse for when I beat her next weekend. After what she did to me last week, the best thing she could do for herself is to get the fuck out of town. She went above and beyond to try and humiliate me last week, but the only thing she did was dig her own grave deeper. Coming into 2020, I knew that I wanted to win a championship and elevate myself to that next level. I had two cracks at the EAW World Championship and came up short in both matches, and I don’t see it as a step down to set my sights on the Interwire Championship, especially when the champion is something like Dr. Blue. One thing I will say, is that I’m not at all embarrassed over losing two world championship matches. So don’t waste my fucking time this upcoming week by trying to throw Wicked Games and Road to Redemption in my face, Dr. Blue. Charlie Marr had to murder me in order to keep me from winning, and you better fucking believe you’re going to have to do the same thing. This whole match we have coming up at King of Elite is extremely personal, and that’s because you made it that way. I planned to take myself one step further than I did last year and get to the finals, where obviously I would win over those two losers, Viz and Jamie.
(Ms. Extreme rolls her eyes.)
Ms. Extreme: But of course you had to cheat in order to beat me because you know no other way of getting the job done. I’m definitely not the first person to point out that you’re nothing but a joke around here. People don’t respect you as a doctor, or as a wrestler, and I damn sure don’t respect you as a competitor. You fight dirty, but now that I know what I’m stepping into at King of Elite, I will be ready. You have lived in a fantasy world this entire season. You never should have been able to cheat Terry out of that championship. Have you even won a match without some type of fuckery? Your act is getting old, and quite frankly, it’s stale. I won’t say you’re just a gimmick, because you have proven yourself to be a resourceful cheater in the ring, and just as despicable out of it as well. You make people uncomfortable. You take your job as a ‘doctor’ way to far. You’re nothing more than a predator, dressed up in designer clothes and expensive cosmetics. You take things to the extreme, no pun intended, and you do it in a way that makes people hate you. Maybe you didn’t come here to win a popularity contest, Dr. Blue, but sooner or later your sins and your actions are going to catch up to you.
Ms. Extreme: At King of Elite, all the aggravation you’ve caused me these last few weeks is going to come back to you tenfold. I’m going to make sure you feel the splitting headaches my last concussion caused me. I’m going to make sure you feel my anger when I found myself unfairly banned from the arenas. I’m going to make you feel the anxiety I felt by not being able to get into the ring, and all this pent up anger I have is something I’ve been saving just for this match. I was never going to roll over and die for you. The second you took King of Elite from me, I made a promise to myself to get even. Taking away your chance to make history gave me a tremendous amount of joy, but I promise you that will pale in comparison to what I feel once I beat you in front of 70,000 plus people. This match means the world to me and you better believe I’ll do whatever I have to do in order to win. You are a fake, a fraud, and just a glorified piece of shit, Dr. Blue. You are the worst. Keep being a weirdo who gives rectal exams to Gaines and tries to commit actual murder. I’ll be the second coming of Jesus and save that Interwire Championship.
Ms. Extreme: You don’t deserve to hold the same belt that people like HRDO, Tyler Parker, and Cameron Ella Ava have held. You aren’t in their league and you never will be, and you definitely aren’t in mine. I’m not going to allow you to fake your way through another championship defense. I’m going to beat you and humiliate you just like you tried to do to me. When all is said and done, and my hand gets raised, I hope you will have learned to never, ever fuck with Ms. Extreme.
(A confident smirk spreads across Ms. Extreme’s face as her feet hit the floor. She walks out of the scene and out of sight, which sends Voltage back to the ringside area.)
(Bella is smiling into the camera as Voltage returns.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
( ‘Stabbing In The Dark’ By Ice Nine Kills blasts through the speakers to thunderous boos as Komatsu Ogawa jerks the curtain and makes his appearance known on the stage. He gives the audience an angsty, sarcastic stare before making his way down towards and into the squared circle. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Kabukicho, Tokyo, Japan, weighing in at two-hundred and fifty-one pounds…. HE IS THE SERRPPPPENNNT KINNNGG!!! KOMMMMMMATTTSUUUUUU OGGGGGAWAAAA
James Peters: The Serpent King is here and he has been nothing but impressive here on the Voltage brand. He has proven to be a worthy acquisition to this talented roster and he gets a wonderful opportunity to find where he is at in the food chain as he steps into the ring with a former world champion, Charlie Marr.
( ‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits through the speakers to a deafening, negative reaction from the Spanish crowd as Charlie and Jordie Marr emerges from the Gorilla position with an aggravated face as he gazes into the eyes of Ogawa who is preparing in the squared circle across from him. He shakes his head at the presence of the crowd while marching down towards the ring. )
Rich Russillo: Ever since the EAW World Championship was taken away from him by Andrea Valentine, Charlie Marr has not been in the greatest mood and you can tell by the look on his face. Komatsu Ogawa may have set off several great first impressions, but this is Charlie Marr he’s stepping into the ring with.
( DING! DING! DING )
James Peters: This match is underway as Charlie Marr and Komatsu Ogawa meet in the middle of the ring. Both two different competitors, with opposing characters and wrestling styles, which will make the clash between Marr and Ogawa an intriguing bout. Ogawa has not relented from showing his hand here in the battlefield of Voltage and tonight, he faces the notorious, dangerous Charlie Marr.
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr with a knife-edge chop across the chest of Ogawa! Ogawa embraces the chop as he responds with one of his own! Marr seems semi-impressed by the chop as he puts his foot into the midsection. Ogawa is stunned by the kick as Marr comes off the ropes! AND OGAWA RESPONDS WITH A STOMP INTO THE MIDSECTION IN RETURN!! Ogawa sports a smile on his face before running the ropes and charges into Marr! MARR SHOOTS OFF THE GROUND AND GROUNDS HIM WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK!
James Peters: Komatsu Ogawa is downed by Marr! Marr runs into the ropes, jumps over Ogawa and comes off the ropes again! He jumps over for the leapfrog! OGAWA GRABS HIS FOOT IN MID-AIR AND SENDS HIM DROPPING DOWN FACE-FIRST ONTO THE MAT! Marr eats the canvas as Ogawa runs past him, rebounds off the ropes AND SENDS HIM REELING INTO THE CORNER WITH HIS OWN SHOULDER BLOCK!
James Peters: Ogawa savours in the mixed reaction from the crowd as Marr feels disrespected and charges into Marr! Ogawa beats him to the chase with repeated rights and lefts to the face before irish whipping him off the ropes. Marr comes off the ropes as Ogawa leans downwards! MARR KICKS HIM IN THE FACE!! BUT NO!! OGAWA GRABS HIS FOOT AS HE LOOKS TOWARDS OGAWA WITH DISAPPOINTMENT
Rich Russillo: MARR WITH A SLAP TO THE FACE!! Charlie Marr has a reputation of getting under the skin of his adversaries and he is implementing that gameplan on Ogawa and I don’t think it’s going to work in his favour! OGAWA PULLS HIM IN BY HIS LEG AND GRABS HIM!! AND TOSSES HIM ACROSS THE RING WITH AN ARM CAPTURE SUPLEX!! MARR REELS INTO THE CORNER AS OGAWA IMMEDIATELY GETS UP TO HIS FEET AND DASHES TOWARDS HIM!! HE JUMPS UP!! AND SENDS HIM FLYING HEAD FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH A SINGLE LEG HIGH KNEE STRIKE!!
James Peters: OGAWA IS EN FUEGO IN THE INCEPTION OF THIS MATCH AS MARR RETREATS OUT OT RINGSIDE!! I’M AFRAID HE ISN’T GOING TO BE GIVEN TIME TO GATHER HIMSELF AS OGAWA RUNS THE ROPES!!! HE SOARS BENEATH THE SECOND ROPE!! AND LAWNDARTS HIMSELF TOWARDS MARR ONTO OUTSIDE WITH A HEADBUTT SUICIDE DIVE!!
Rich Russillo: HE GRABS HIS TIGHTS AND THROWS HIM BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE!! MARR IS LAID OUT ON HIS STOMACH AS OGAWA IS PERCHED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HE SOOOOOARRRS!!! AND LANDS A FROG SPLASH ACROSS THE BACK OF MARR!! OGAWA GRABS HIM, HOISTS HIM UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY DRIVER, AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A FALCON DRIVER!!! HE CRADLES HIM AS THIS COULD BE THE END OF THE MATCH!!
James Peters: MARR POWERS OUT AT TWO!! Ogawa’s had Marr’s number the entire match so far as he slowly pulls him up towards his feet. He grabs his tights, hoists him up in the air and drops him over for a stunner! JORDIE MARR HOPS ONTO THE APRON AND DISTRACTS THE REF! MARR SINKS HIS FINGERS INTO THE EYES AND ESCAPES OUT OF THE HOLD! The referee saw nothing as he shoot kicks the back of his knee! Marr grabs his arm and pulls him up off the ground!! AND BLASTS HIM WITH A HEADBUTT!! Marr quickly changing the direction of this match as he pins him down!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! Marr immediately gets up to his feet, picks Ogawa up and SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A BRUTAL SNAP SUPLEX!! Ogawa retreats into the corner as Marr takes a breather in the corner. Marr comes off the corner and rushes towards Ogawa! Ogawa gets his leg behind Marr’s knee, wrapping it around as he forces him down into the mat! ROLLING CALF SLICER!! NO!! MARR ESCAPES OUT OF THE HOLD, ROLLING ONTO HIS FEET AND DROPPING DOWN ONTO OGAWA WITH A PRECISION SLIDING KNEE ACROSS THE TEMPLE! Ogawa is stunned as Marr climbs the turnbuckles and soars! MISSILE DROPKICK ACROSS THE CHEST!
James Peters: Charlie Marr continuing with the hard-hitting offense as he hoists him up! AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A STANDING POWERBOMB!! THE REF UNABLE TO RECORD A COUNT AS MARR IMMEDIATELY HOLDS HIM UP IN THE AIR!! HE HOLDS HIM IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY!!! AND DRIVES HIM DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH AN EMERALD FROSION!!! HE SHOOTS THE HALF!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! I thought that was almost it for Ogawa as Marr sizes him up in the corner! HE RUNS IN FOR ANOTHER RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!! OGAWA SIDESTEPS! HE KICKS MARR’S CHEST, SENDING HIM FLYING INTO THE ROPES AND REBOUND OFF AS HE SPINS AROUND!! DISCUS ELBOW CONNECTS!!! OGAWA LIFTS HIM UP!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH A BRAINBUSTER! HE HOVERS OVER FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: AND OGAWA IMMEDIATELY LOCKS IN THE ARM BAR!! WHAT A SEAMLESS TRANSITION INTO THE SUBMISSION HOLD AS MARR MAINTAINS THE MONKEY GRIP TO STOP THE HOLD FROM BEING FULLY INITIATED! Ogawa attempting to break the grip, but Marr continues to hold his ground very, very well..
Rich Russillo: But Ogawa, uses his inner body strength to detach the fingers as Marr slowly continues to lose the grip. Ogawa is separating finger by finger as we are seconds away from it being fully locked in! AND OGAWA BREAKS UP THE MONKEY GRIP AND THE ARMBAR IS NOW COMPLETELY LOCKED IN!! CHARLIE MARR IS IN TROUBLE!! BUT IT IS IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED AS HE GETS HIS FOOT UP ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!!
James Peters: Marr with magnificent ring awareness right there as Ogawa gets back up to his feet. Marr uses the ropes to rise up while Ogawa charges into him! Marr gets his foot up, but Ogawa grabs it, shoves it down and ABSOLUTELY DESTROYS HIM WITH A VICIOUS BACK ELBOW!! HE IS ROCKED AS OGAWA COMES REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES!! MARR MEETS HIM HALFWAY WITH A BICYCLE KICK!! MARR FLOORS HIM AS HE PICKS HIM UP INTO ANOTHER POWERBOMB!!! OGAWA FLIPS OVER AND PICKS HIM UP!! BACK-TO-BELLY PILEDRIVER!! HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! Ogawa nearly had him as he quickly pulls him back up to his feet! HE LIFTS HIM UP INTO A SUPLEX!! AND BRINGS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS!! NEUROTOXXIN!!! THE SUPLEX STUNNER FAILS AS MARR LANDS ON HIS FEET AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS NECK!! THE SLEEPER HOLD IS LOCKED IN TIGHT!! OGAWA QUICKLY PULLS HIM DOWN OVER HIS HEAD, SLAMMING HIM DOWN AS MARR REELS TOWARDS THE CORNER!
James Peters: HE CHARGES INTO MARR IN THE CORNER!! MARR DRIVES HIS ELBOW AGAINST HIS FACE, MOMENTARILY STALLING HIM AS HE HOPS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND SOARS!!! DIVING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! OGAWA CATCHES HIM AND DROPS HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! DEVASTATING COUNTER AS OGAWA IS ALL FIRED UP! HE COMES REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES!!! MARR PICKS HIM UP!! AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A SPINEBUSTER!! THE HEADMASTER RITUAL IS COMPLETED AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! Another near-fall in this match in this highly-contested match and these two have ripped each other apart! Marr has sinister intent in his eyes as he gingerly drags Ogawa up to his feet! HE HOOKS BOTH ARMS! THE QUEEN IS DEAD!! NO!! OGAWA GRABS HIS WAIST AND SHOVES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT TO RINGSIDE!! BOTH MEN SPLATTER ONTO RINGSIDE!
James Peters: What a rough fall onto the ringside floor here as both competitors make their way back up to their feet! FOREARM BY OGAWA!! AND FOREARM BY MARR IN RESPONSE!! OGAWA GOES IN FOR A PUNCH!! MARR WITH A KICK TO GUT AS HE GRABS HIS TIGHTS AND LIFTS HIM UP!! SUPLEX ONTO THE FLOOR!! NO!! OGAWA GOES OVER HIS HEAD, LANDS ONTO HIS FEET AND PLANTS HIM NECK FIRST ONTO THE FLOOR WITH A DRAGON SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: Komatsu now slides beneath the bottom rope and sprints across the squared circle! HE GOES AIRBORNE!!! SUICIDE DI- MARR WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, INTERCEPTING HIM AS HE WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE THE RNIG!! MARR GRABS HIS HEAD, HANGS HIM FROM THE APRON AND DRILLS HIM WITH AN APRON-HUNG DDT!!! NO FACE, NO CASE AS HE PULLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING! HE STEPS ONTO THE APRON AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES!!! AND CONNECTS WITH THE FLYING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! DEATH OR GLORY CONNECTS AS HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE VICTORY!
James Peters: KICKOUT! Ogawa pops his shoulder up before the third count and that is causing Marr to become frustrated as this match prolongs. Marr came here to derail Komatsu Ogawa’s career and he is having a lot of difficulty fulfilling that. Ogawa is in the corner while Marr crouches in the opposing side!! MARR RUNS AND LAUNCHES HIS BODY ONTO HIM!! OGAWA CATCHES HIM AND TURNS HIM AROUND FOR AN ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER HOLD!! THIS COULD BE IT!! HEMOTOXINN!!!
Rich Russillo: HOWEVER, MARR ESCAPES THE HOLD AND SHOVES HIM AWAY!! HE GOES IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE!! OGAWA DUCKS AND BLASTS HIM WITH A DEVASTATING SLAP TO THE FACE!! MARR IS STAGGERED AS OGAWA PICKS HIM UP INTO AN ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER HOLD!! SECONDS TIMES, THE CHARM!?!?!!! HEMOTOXIN!!! COVER!
James Peters: MARR ESCAPES AT THE LAST SECOND!! Ogawa almost shocked the world right there with the Argentine Backbreaker dropped into the Double Knees and I think all of us in the arena thought that could’ve been it for The Libertine of EAW. Komatsu is now on the top turnbuckle, perched and ready to fly as Marr is laid out in the center of the ring! OGAWA GOES OFF AND DRIVES HIS ELBOW INTO THE HEART OF MARR!
Rich Russillo: OGAWA FALLS RIGHT INTO A REAR NAKED CHOKE!! MARR CHANGING THE PERPLEXION OF THIS MATCH IN A HEART-BEAT AS HE HAS HIS ARMS WRAPPED AROUND THE NECK AND LEGS AROUND!! TRANQUILITY IS LOCKED IN AND WE MAY VERY WELL SEE KOMATSU OGAWA REACH HIS BREAKING POINT HERE ON SHOWDOWN!! BUT OGAWA IS ABLE TO FLIP OUT OF HOLD AND PINS DOWN MARR!
James Peters: CLOSE CALL!! OGAWA NEARLY HAD IT AS BOTH MEN GET UP TO THEIR FEET!! MARR COMES FLYING IN LIKE A BULLET AS HE SPINS AROUND!! CHARING CROSS!! NO!! OGAWA COUNTERS THE DISCUS LARIAT WITH AN INVERTED JUDO TOSS!! AND BLASTS HIS JAW WITH A KNEE STRIKE!!! HE GRABS HIS TIGHTS AND HOISTS HIM UP!!! AND DROPS HIM WITH A STUNNER!! NEUROTOXIN CONNECTS, BUT THE SHEER IMPACT OF THE STUNNER SENT CHARLIE MARR EXPLODING OUT OF THE RING AND OUT TO RINGSIDE!!
Rich Russillo: Ogawa can’t believe it! If Marr was to stay within those ropes, Ogawa could’ve had this match won, but Marr by instinct got out of the ring. Marr is laid out on the ringside floor as Ogawa leans on the ropes, frustrated before he begins to climb the turnbuckles! Ogawa seeking to put everything on the line as he is standing on the top turnbuckle! MARR ISN’T EVEN STANDING! YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! OGAWA SOARS OFF THE TOP!! FROGGGG SPLASSHHHHHH!!!!!
James Peters: BUT MARR GETS HIS KNEES UP!!! OGAWA GOES CRASH LANDING STRAIGHT INTO THE KNEES AS MARR INSERTS HIM BACK INTO THE RING!!! MARR FIRED UP IN THE CORNER AS OGAWA IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! MARR CHARGES INTO HIM!!! HE SPINS AROUND! CHARRRRRRRINGGG CROSSS!!!
Rich Russillo: MASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSAKKKKKKKKKARIIIIIIIII!!! OGAWA INTERCEPTS HIM WITH A LARIAT OF HIS OWN OUT OF NOWHERE AS HE PICKS HIM UP!! WHERE THE HELL IS OGAWA GETTING THIS ENERGY FROM!?!?!?! HE DRILLS HIM WITH THE SNAKE BITE! THE WRIST-CLUTCH FISHERMAN DRIVER CONNECTS AS HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE WIN!!! OH MY!!
James Peters: NO!!!! MARR BRINGS HIS SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!! KOMATSU OGAWA IS IN DISBELIEF!! HE IS LIVID AS HE JUST HIT WITH BOTH OF HIS FINISHERS IN THE ROW AND IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO PUT MARR AWAY FOR THE WIN!! MARR PROVING WHY HE WAS A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AND OGAWA CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!
Rich Russillo: OGAWA NOW LIFTS HIM UP INTO AN ELECTRIC CHAIR!! HE CARRIES HIM INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AS HE SIGNALS FOR THE END!!! BUT LOOK!! MARR SWINGS BACKWARDS AND SPIKES OGAWA ONTO HIS HEAD WITH AN INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!! WHERE IN THE HELL DID THAT COME FROM!!! MARR NOW GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE RECEIVES SECOND WIND!! HE SPINS AROUND FOR THE DISCUS LARIAT!!!
James Peters: BUT OGAWA IS ABLE TO DUCK THE CHARING CROSS ATTEMPT!! HE REBOUNDS OFF THE BUICKLES WHILE MARR TURNS AROUND!!! MASAKARI!! NO!!! MARR DUCKS HIS CLOTHESLINE AS BOTH MEN NOW RUNS INTO ROPES OPPOSITE OF EACH OTHER AND CHARGE INTO EACH OTHER’S DIRECTIONS!!! MARR SPINS AROUND!! OGAWA GOES FULL SPEED AHEAD!! AND BOTH MEN COLLIDE INTO EACH OTHER WITH CLOTHESLINES!!! OGAWA WITH THE MASAKARI AND MARR WITH HIS CHARING CROSS AT THE SAME TIME AND BOTH ELITISTS ARE DOWN AND OUT!!
Rich Russillo: The crowd giving respect to both performers as they give them a standing ovation here in the Fernando Buesa Arena. Marr and Ogawa are using each other to aid themselves onto their feet as the arena encourages them to fight forever! OGAWA GOES FOR A RIGHT! But, Marr blocks his fist and POUNDS HIM WITH REPEATED FOREARMS TO THE FACE!! MARR MURDERED HIM WITH THOSE FOREARMS AS HE RUNS OFF!
James Peters: OGAWA GRABS HIS TIGHTS, PULLS HIM BACK IN AND GRABS HIM BY HIS BEARD!! MARR IS CLUELESS ON WHAT TO DO AS OGAWA LOOKS AT HIM ANGRILY!! OGAWA SLAPS HIM IN THE FACE OVER AND OVER AGAIN!! THE REFEREE SEPARATING THEM AS OGAWA CHARGES INTO HIM! MARR KICKS HIS GUT!! AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS!! THE QUEEN IS DEAD!
Rich Russillo: NO!! IT IS BLOCKED AS OGAWA SPINS AROUND AND GRABS HIS WRIST!! HE PICKS HIM UP!! SNAKE BITE!! MARR ESCAPES OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND RUNS INTO THE ROPES!! HE REBOUNDS OFF AND SPINS AROUND OGAWA WITH A TILT-A-WHI- OGAWA HOLDS ONTO MARR!! OGAWA USING HIS POWER TO KEEP MARR ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AS HE TRANSITIONS IT INTO AN INVERTED CRUCIFIX HOLD!! WHAT THE HELL!!
James Peters: HE RELEASES HIM AND GRABS HIM IN MID AIR FOR A TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!! BUT MARR USES HIS BODY WEIGHT TO SWITCH HOLDS AS HE HOLDS HIM IN THE AIR ON HIS SHOULDERS!! HE RELEASES HIM, TURNS AROUND, GRABS HIS ARM AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE QUEEN IS DEAD!! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT CONNECTS AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘It Aint’ Safe’ by Skepta hits to a loud pop as Charlie Marr develops a sadistic smile on his face. He gingerly raises his arm in the air as he lays down on the canvas as Jordie Marr showers him with joy. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… CHARRRLLIIIIEE MARR!!
Rich Russillo: WHAT A PERFORMANCE BY BOTH OF THESE TWO INDIVIDUALS!! Komatsu Ogawa showed out tonight and gave Charlie Marr one hell of a fight! There many moments in this match that we thought Ogawa would’ve captured the career-defining victory tonight, but Marr fought through every second of suffering and walks out of tonight with another victory on his plate.
James Peters: As you said, Komatsu Ogawa put on an impressive performance tonight and showed that he can indeed hang with the very best on this brand. I am excited to see what this brings for the future of Ogawa as surely people will be talking about what he brought to the table against Charlie Marr.
(Charlie and Jordie continue to celebrate as Voltage cuts to the final commercial break of the night.)
(Commercial break for Healthy Choice meals not featuring Xander Payne.)
(The camera fades to the ring, where inside of it there are two chairs opposite each other, and in between them a table. On top of the table is a pen, the EAW Championship match contract, and the chain that will be used for said match.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, right now we will be seeing the contract signing for Voltage’s EAW Championship match at King of Elite!
(The crowd begins to cheer, and there’s a clear divide as the fans chant both “Terry Chambers” and “Andrea Valentine” before Sofia continues to speak.)
Sofia Clarke: At King of Elite we will be seeing the Challenger Terry Chambers face off against the Champion Andrea Valentine, in a Chain Match!
(The crowd begins cheering once again as the excitement for the chain match is there. The last chain match Andrea Valentine competed in was when she lost the Specialists Championship to Serena Bennett, so the fans are surely interested to see what happens this time around.)
Sofia Clarke: Now, introducing first.. He is a former Interwire Champion, and the current number one contender to the EAW Championship! He is one of the most dangerous men on Voltage, if not EAW as a whole. This is the man who managed to come back from near death last season after an injury not many could recover from and in turn won his first Championship at Pain for Pride 12, he is the Barbaric Carnivore, TERRY CHAMBERS!
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons hits and the fans begin cheering as Terry Chambers walks out to the stage. He already has a microphone in his hand, so he makes his way directly into the ring and takes a seat in one of the chairs.)
Sofia Clarke: Now that we have the Challenger here, let’s bring out his, hopefully, soon to be opponent! She is a former two time Specialists Champion! Former Openweight Champion! Winner of both the 2019 EAW Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber as well as 2019’s War Games match for brand supremacy! The face of EAW’s women’s revolution and the current EAW Champion, ANDREA VALENTINE!!
(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX then begins playing and the crowd continues cheering, even more than before as Andrea Valentine walks out to the stage. She has the EAW Championship on her shoulder and a microphone in her hand before she makes her way to the ring and sits in the other chair.)
Sofia Clarke: Now that you two are here, I will explain the rules. The rules of a Chain Match are simple. To win, you must touch the buzzer in all four corners of the ring before your opponent. You have a time limit to touch all four corners once you touch one buzzers, and if that time limit runs out, all of the buzzers reset! Now that that’s clear, all that’s left is for the two competitors to sign the contract!
(Terry picks up the pen, but before signing the contract he looks at Andrea and raises his microphone.)
Terry Chambers: Ya’ know, before I sign this contract, I just hope you, Sofia, and everyone in this arena understands just how much winning this match would mean to me. I hope it’s understood because I want you to know, I can’t wait to take you down. You know how hard I’ve been working for this opportunity, but now it’s time. I’m coming for you Andrea, and I’m coming for that title.
(Terry then slowly turns his attention towards the chain on the table as the crowd begins cheering for him.)
Terry Chambers: While we’re on the subject of King of Elite though… I think I have an idea, I’m sure you’d love to hear it.
(Andrea grows a smile on her face, but raises her microphone to begin speaking before Terry could give Andrea his idea.)
Andrea Valentine: Really? That’s funny that you say that, because I actually have an idea of my own.
Terry Chambers: Oh, alright then. Ladies first.
Andrea Valentine: So, I’ve been doing some thinking, especially about my last Specialists Championship reign. Throughout my title reign I competed in so many different types of matches. I’ve become well versed in all forms and wrestling, so right now I’m thinking, why don’t we just take this match up a notch? We’re going to have to do a lot of damage to each other if either of us really want to walk out of King of Elite as Champion, so why not just go for broke? I remember your weapon at Road to Redemption, and I have to say..
(Terry slowly nods, wondering why his one time weapon out of anything was brought up in the conversation between the two.)
Andrea Valentine: That weapon, it really intrigued me. A razor wire wrapped steel chain I believe it was. A lot of damage was done in the Elimination Chamber with that chain. So, I thought of something. You say this match is already stacked against me and that it’s already in your favor, so why not put that to the test? Why not make this, a RAZOR WIRE CHAIN MATCH!?
(The crowd explodes, cheering as loud as they can at the idea of a razor wire chain match. It’s clear that all the fans want the match, and Andrea clearly wants the match as well. Terry begins thinking to himself until a smirk appears on his face.)
Terry Chambers: You know, I actually like the sound of that. If that’s what you really want, so be it. I’m in. I hope you realize what you’re getting yourself into though. You yourself admit that I’m a dangerous man. I wouldn’t want you to put yourself into a situation you can’t fight out of.
Andrea Valentine: I’ve competed in some of the most violent matches EAW has to offer, and as it stands I’m not only one of the only people to win both a War Games and Extreme Elimination Chamber in the same year, but I’m also one of the only people to win one of those unforgiving Elimination Chamber matches back to back years. I do want this Terry. At King of Elite, I know I’ll be just fine.
Terry Chambers: Well, if that’s what you really believe, I can’t stop you. If anything happens to you, just know I warned you. Nothing I can do now except say good luck once again.
(Terry signs the contract, and all the fans cheer at the sight of Terry signing the contract.)
Andrea Valentine: Good luck to you too Terry.
(Andrea signs the contract as well, and the two get out of their seats and stand face to face from each other as they shake hands.)
James Peters: And it’s official! We have our EAW Championship match at King of Elite, and it is now a razor wire chain match! Both competitors shaking hands, and man I’ve gotta say, I can’t wait for King of Elite! This is a match that nobody’s gonna want to miss!
(Andrea turns to walk out of the ring, but Terry doesn’t let go of her hand. Andrea turns around, looking very confused as Terry slowly tightens his grip on her hand. Sofia Clarke then exits the ring, clearly not liking what she’s seeing as the grin that was on Terry’s face begins to fade away.)
Rich Russillo: Uh… James? Why is Terry-
James Peters: OH MY GOD! TERRY JUST GRABBED THE CHAIN ON THE TABLE AND WHIPPED ANDREA RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH IT! ANDREA IS ALREADY OUT AND LOOK AT THE BLOOD SLOWLY STARTING TO POUR FROM THE SIDE OF HER FACE! WHAT IS TERRY THINKING HERE!?
Rich Russillo: He did say he warned her! Terry just said he warned her, and this is why! Terry just laid Andrea out with that chain, and at King of Elite we could be seeing a similar sight, but with RAZOR WIRE involved! Wait, what’s Terry doing?
James Peters: Oh, God.. Terry is picking Andrea up on his shoulders, and he’s approaching the table the contract was on! TERRY, DON’T DO THIS! NO!!! T-5!!! TERRY JUST PUT ANDREA THROUGH THE TABLE WITH A T-5, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
Rich Russillo: The message is being sent loud and clear by Terry, and now look what he’s doing! Terry grabbing Andrea by the arm, and he’s just dragging her! Terry now, touching the top turnbuckle by one of the corners! Terry walking over to the second corner and he touches the top turnbuckle there, and he’s still dragging Andrea! If this isn’t a message being delivered, I don’t know what is! Terry, he’s just mimicking what he plans to do at King of Elite!
James Peters: Terry walks over to the third corner and he touches the top turnbuckle! Terry now making his way to the last turnbuckle, and he touches it! Terry just dragged Andrea and touched all four turnbuckles with ease, and at King of Elite he could become EAW Champion by doing that exact same thing! After seeing this, I fear for Andrea’s title reign more than I ever did before. At King of Elite, we may see a new EAW Champion. That’s all for Voltage, and we’ll see you guys, at King of Elite!
(Terry holds the EAW Championship and looks down on it for a short while, before eventually dropping it on top of Andrea’s unmoving body as the crowd gives off a very mixed reaction. Some booing after what Terry did to Andrea, and others cheering due to their love for Terry. Terry finally makes his way out to the ring as the camera fades out for the final time.)
