Voltage 2/7/21

[SCREENBAR – Outside of the World 1 Theatre]

(The camera opens up to the outside of the World 1 Theatre, and tons of security guards are seen blocking the entrance. Screaming is heard, and as the camera pans out a bit it’s revealed why. Lisa Wren is yelling at the security guards, clearly wanting to get inside of the building but not being allowed to thanks to her recent suspension. Lisa is furious, and the last thing she wants is to miss out on King of Elite all because of her encounter with Prince Fayyaad. She’s been trying to get inside of the building, and she’s struggling with security to try and make it but obviously she fails as she’s outnumbered.)

Lisa Wren: This is bullshit! Let me inside already, I told you dumbasses I work here! Hurry up and let me the fuck inside, I’ve been out here way too long now!

Security Guard: Sorry ma’am. No can do.

Lisa Wren: Where the fuck is Captain Charisma then!? He knows this suspension ain’t fair at all and I’m not about to miss out on King of Elite because of some stupid ass Prince! I should be in there right now and all of y’all know that! 

Security Guard: We were told not to allow you inside. We’re sorry, but there’s nothing we can do about that. We can’t allow you inside of the building.

Lisa Wren: So now y’all are a bunch of kissasses huh? You’re really not gonna let me inside because they wanna kiss that bumass Prince’s ass? At least let me see Captain Charisma, ‘cause this shit isn’t right! I shouldn’t be missing out on King of Elite because of this shit and he knows that!

Security Guard: Ma’am, I’m gonna have to ask you to leave the premises. 

Lisa Wren: Shut the fuck up! I’m not going anywhere until Captain Charisma comes out here! Either you guys let me in the building or he comes out here to speak to me, I don’t care which one but I’m not letting this shit happen! All of you know this isn’t fair! I should be competing at King of Elite! I was supposed to have a match there, this is all kinds of fucked up! Y’all need to get the fuck outta my way right now, I already told you that I need to speak to him! This is my show, I’m supposed to be here!

(Lisa Wren continues arguing with the security guards, trying to make it into the building, but to no avail. Of course, she was suspended just one week ago thanks to her disrespect to Prince Fayyaad, and this is merely the result of said suspension. The arguing continues for a while, but eventually the entrance to the World 1 Theatre opens up, and Lisa Wren gets what she wanted as Captain Charisma walks out. He doesn’t look too happy seeing Lisa, but he also doesn’t look very surprised. He sighs as the security guards stand by, before finally beginning to speak.)

Captain Charisma: Lisa, you know you’re not supposed to be here. You were suspended last week and you need to honor that suspension or things could get much worse. If you don’t leave you’re going to be fired, and you know neither of us want that. Please Lisa, just go back home and don’t come back until your suspension is lifted. You’re only going to make things worse for yourself.

Lisa Wren: But this shit isn’t fair, I should be competing at King of Elite next week! How am I supposed to have a match there if I’m suspended?

Captain Charisma: You should have thought about that when you went and slapped the Prince. Stuff like that can’t happen, Lisa. That was a huge opportunity for us all and you ruined it. You cost EAW a lot of money, and the last time that happened Mr. DEDEDE nearly ended Amber Keys’ life. You should be glad we’re letting you off with a suspension and not with an even worse punishment. 

Lisa Wren: Glad? How the fuck could I be happy about this? I don’t give a fuck what two old ass cacs did to each other years ago, King of Elite is NEXT WEEK and you’re trying to keep me off the fuckin’ show! That’s not fucking fair, this shouldn’t be happening! All over some stupid fucking Prince that wasn’t needed here in the first place? How is any of this shit okay!? Just let me inside, and give me a match for King of Elite!

Captain Charisma: I’m sorry Lisa, but I can’t do that. Stuff like what you did last week.. It’s just not okay. I didn’t want you suspended but we had to. You gotta learn that you can’t go around doing things like that. Leave now and we can keep discuss this in two weeks, after King of Elite is over. 

(Lisa is clearly pissed, as she’s missing out on the opportunity to compete at King of Elite, the first free-per-view event of the year. She wants to keep arguing and fighting, but she realizes that there’s no use and Captain Charisma’s decision was final, so she simply sighs and walks away. Captain Charisma watches on for a moment, before finally shaking his head and going back inside of the World 1 Theatre. Captain Charisma clearly loves his roster, but what Lisa did could not go without some sort of punishment and he knew that. As both Captain Charisma and Lisa Wren part ways, the camera begins to fade out.)

(EAW intro plays.)

(As always, a recap from last week’s Voltage begins to play. It opens up with the Cloth Talk segment which ends in Xander Payne taking down all of his King of Elite competition, even kicking Steroid Dawg. Following this, Shane Gates defeats Sinead Reyns in singles competition, before a huge issue would occur over at the Poon Palace with Azrael, resulting in his arrest after Azrael lashes out on one of the Poons. Next, Candice Blair defeats Holly Arrow, and Mr. Jacobs reveals that Azrael will be facing Candice at King of Elite. After this, Drake King has an interesting encounter with Myles and Minerva, where Drake and Myles seem to come to an agreement about Minerva. After this Darcy May Morgan cuts a promo where she vows to defeat Jack Ripley and prove why she’ll become Universal Women’s Champion, and Terry Chambers manages to defeat Lisa Wren despite an attack from Lisa that came after SOSA distracted Terry with a promo. This leads to Lisa’s suspension as she’d slap Prince Fayyaad in an altercation backstage, and afterwards Taco Bell’s lawsuit on EAW is lifted as they instead extend their working relationship, allowing Taco Bell to handle EAW’s catering. After this Rex McAllister manages to defeat Kasey Kaos, and Constance Blevins has an interview backstage regarding her Specialists Championship match, where Constance promises not to let Kasey escape the punishment she has in store. After this Holly Arrow and Kensingten Calhoun-Astor have an argument backstage, and after stirring the pot A. Catalina Flowers challenges Holly to a Voltage match next week, which Kensingten accepts for Holly. Next, Myles and Minerva defeats IDOL-GUN after Chained Fury distracts Miku Sakai, allowing Minerva to roll her up. This leads to a brawl between Chained Fury and IDOL-GUN, and following it Ms. Extreme cuts a promo on Minerva, and a match between her and Minerva at King of Elite becomes official. In the main event, Drake King leaves TLA high and dry, allowing Consuela Rose Ava to defeat TLA for herself and Jake Smith. In the end Drake would try and capitalize on Jake and Consuela’s brawl, but the two would work together to take him out before Jake would betray Consuela, standing tall to close Voltage.)

(As always Voltage’s theme begins to play as the camera pans around the World 1 Theatre. The virtual fans in attendance all cheer as they’re shown on screen, before finally the camera cuts to the commentary table.)

James Peters: Hello and welcome to Voltage, ladies and gentlemen. As we all saw earlier in the night Lisa Wren tried to enter the building, but as we all know she is currently suspended and will miss King of Elite. Nonetheless, I’m liking what we have in store tonight, I can’t wait to kick things off!

Rich Russillo: That’s right. We have some exciting matches in store, including Voltage’s own Deathmatch!

Persephone: There is absolutely nothing to be excited about tonight. I’m just glad there’s not many matches. Now I don’t have to waste my time pretending to care about any of these garbage wrestlers not names Rexy.

(Returning to ringside, it’s just after a moment of panning around the arena that “Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea begins to play and it’s to a mixed reaction that Miss Cash in the Vault comes walking out from the back! With a grin on her face and the briefcase in hand, Darcy takes a moment to pose at the top of the ramp before starting down the aisle.)

Rich Russillo: Darcy appears to be confident and walking with a purpose on her way to the ring here, but when she’s coming off that loss to Rex, I have to wonder how she’s really feeling!

Persephone: I’m sure she’s out here to tell Rex how much better he is than everyone else on this roster; we should just do a Rex McAllister Appreciation Night where everyone just comes out here and tells everyone why they’ll never match up to Sexy Rexy 😍

James Peters: What she’s really out here to do, is send a message to Raven! Her King of Elite opponent has to be watching and after a match with Showdown’s Answers World Champion, Darcy surely has a lot on her mind!

(Darcy enters the ring after receiving a microphone from ringside, and after taking a moment to allow the virtual crowd to settle down and to let her music fade out, Darcy stands in the middle of the ring.)

Darcy May Morgan: Ray-Raaaay! Can you feel it?! Are you excited?! Are you ready for the match of your life?! Because King of Elite is just around the corner and I can say that I’m looking forward to it, with nothing but eagerness to finally have you inside the ring one-on-one after all this time. Anyone making the dumb decision to not pay attention would probably simply find it ironic that it’ll be the only two women to have ever won the Cash in the Vault briefcase are facing off this upcoming weekend, but for me, it’s poetic. Beyond this briefcase, we’ve got history, Raven, and yes, I’m talking about the No Way Out Match from Fighting Spirit last year. People will want to call me bitter maybe for bringing that up still, but honestly, could anyone really blame me for feeling the way I did about someone who’s not nearly as good as me essentially allowing you to escape with the win that night? Lucky for us though, we’ve got this date all to ourselves this time around! 😘 No Ms. Extreme, no Kensingten, no Harper Lee, and there’s no Alexis Chambers – it’s just you and me like I’ve been envisioning ever since you laid out your open challenge that I just had to answer, and I’m sure you have to agree, Raven, that it couldn’t feel more right!

Darcy May Morgan: I mean, let’s just think about things here: I’m absolutely the perfect opponent for you to have as your first real opponent upon returning, and on one of the most anticipated FPVs of the year, no less! Considering who I am and… well, you being who you are, I saw it as just another reason to make sure that this match got the presentation it deserved, and everyone knows just how much I love to put on a damn good show. This is going to be the match that people are talking about all year, Ray, and I plan on making sure that they’re talking about it even after that with how I plan to show to the world that Darcy May Morgan is the greatest Elitist of this generation. But even then, my name is going to stretch far beyond this match when people think about past Cash in the Vault winners and those who actually got the job done with it, and realize that I was the best Cash in the Vault winner… well, ever! But when you and everyone else are thinking about what I’ll have proven at King of Elite, what’s going to settle in on everyone is that between the two of us, Ray-Ray, I’m the better woman to have held this briefcase.

(Darcy nods her head as she revels in the reception of the virtual crowd, not minding the plenty of booing at all.)

Darcy May Morgan: It’s going to be a tough pill for you to swallow, I’m sure, but like you promised, Raven, you’ll still have to be around after the fact to remind everyone just how true it is! You’ll be telling everyone how you stepped in the ring against the better woman, the better female Cash in the Vault winner, had your absolute best brought out of you like you needed it to be because no else could possibly measure up, and then had to deal with the realization that I was always going to prove to be bigger and better than you or anyone else could’ve anticipated! There should be absolutely no shame in admitting all of that, right? Because to say that a competitor like me was someone that you couldn’t defeat no matter how damn good you thought yourself to be after bailing out to go on your excursion to rediscover yourself or whatever, is something that people are going to recognize as just being no surprise at all because of what I’ve done to put in the work as the best around here. People know I’m no fucking slacker in any aspect of this business. People know I don’t just mope around and get upset after a loss. I’ve taken on all the criticism, I’ve faced all the music, I’ve dealt with all of the fallout no matter what the outcome of a match might’ve been even if it wasn’t favorable – and I fucking went harder the next day, the next week, the next month because that’s just who the fuck Darcy May Morgan is at all times. You had your personal life dragged out onto T.V. for the world to see, and when worst came to worst, Minerva got the upper hand. So much so that she defeated you at Pain for Pride. But just because I haven’t gone there with you like she did, doesn’t mean that this won’t be the hard-hitting, grueling war that we’ve been promising everyone – I’d go as far to say that this will be greater than the match you had with her, because you’ve got me to bring that out of you, duh!

Darcy May Morgan: This past week, Jack Ripley had the fucking audacity to imply that this match won’t be what it’s been made out to be because he thinks your name, your talent, and your acccomplishments don’t seem to all “hold the weight it used to”, as if our match won’t completely and totally outshine whatever bullshit he has going on with Bronson Daniels :mjlol:!!! A match against you is something he really thought to suggest as being something I just must’ve not “hoped” to be doing, despite me making the effort to accept your challenge in the first place, and I had to wonder, who else is making this dumb as hell assumption? Everything I’ve done up to this point since announcing myself as being the one who’d take you on at King of Elite has been to make it clear that this is going to be the match of the year, that it’s going to exceed expectations, and that I’m going to give this everything I possibly could because it’s what this deserves – it’s what I deserve! I can admit that you’d managed to get a step ahead of me, but after the last year and a half, I’m going to show you just how much has changed. This wasn’t a decision I made lightly or thought it to be some kind of “safe choice”, or an easy option – I saw this only as an opportunity that I needed to take and dive into. But don’t go getting ahead of yourself, this wasn’t an opportunity that I was going to dive into so blindly – taking advantage of it is the only thing I’ve got on my mind.

Darcy May Morgan: When I take advantage of it though, it won’t be like some of the cheap shot punches like we’ve thrown at each other; granted, you got yours because you made the mistake of thinking that the Leading Lady wouldn’t make sure she got hers back. :mjgrin: No, because I’m going to be in your face, I’m going to be at your neck, I’m going to hold not a damn thing back, and you’re going to be forced to see that I’m going on from this having proven what I knew to be true after all this time, Raven! I came answering that challenge because of what I wanted to prove, what I wanted to make clear to you and to everyone – that’s why I didn’t wait for my next challenge, I jumped right at it and I’m going to be jumping right at you in the ring when the time comes. But when that time does come, Ray-Ray? It’ll be the time when people accept that I’ll be the best female Cash in the Vault winner, that I’ll go on to be best Universal Women’s Champion of all time, and all while proving that the year 2021 is going to belong to me by the time it all ends!

(Darcy clearly won’t be going to go into this doubting herself or what she’s capable of when she’s come so far, and invested so much into herself, her future, and even this one match. However, it’s this one match that Darcy won’t allow to just be “another match on the card” when she, just like so many others, knows that her versus Raven is a bout that everyone is going to be looking forward to.)

Darcy May Morgan: With all I’ve done to make this the match it’s going to be, I’m expecting nothing but the best. We’ve both made it known to each other and to everyone that we know what we’re going to have to bring to this when it calls for it. It’s why I’ve gone all out to make this a spectacle, an event all on its own – but the only way it’s going to truly be completed is with me finishing it as the winner, as the star of the match! And for all I’ve done to make this a must-see match, I’m going to be the one who finishes it, proving myself as the most must-see Elitist who’s ever going to step into an EAW ring.

(“Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea starts up again with Darcy May Morgan still standing in the ring even after having dropped the microphone she’d been using.)

James Peters: A resounding message sent to Raven Roberts here from Darcy May Morgan, who’s going into her match against Raven with plenty to prove and much to gain from the experience! These two had to meet again at some point, and really, I couldn’t think of a better time for them to cross paths than now!

Rich Russillo: Darcy wants Raven at her best, she’s demanding it, in fact; not even losing to Rex has swayed Darcy’s confidence but I believe that just goes to show where Darcy’s mind is at this point in the season. She’s faced some difficult challenges but always sought to bounce back, and when she’s gone through everything she has, this is the match she felt needed to show how going forward there’s going to be no challenge too big!

Persephone: That loss to Rex should’ve absolutely humbled that slut, but really, I’m not against seeing someone so eager to slap the shit out of that weird stalker that Rex has. I hear she’s always hanging out around his house and stuff, and she just absolutely refuses to leave him alone, it’s kinda pathetic on her part, really!

Rich Russillo: :skip:

James Peters: Raven Roberts versus Darcy May Morgan is a match that no one should want to miss, no matter the reason! These two are some of the best that EAW has and come King of Elite, I believe that everyone’s going to get an even stronger sense of why that is. I’m sure it’ll be brutal, it’ll be demanding, and it’ll be a test like never before for the both of them – all the makings of a match that could very well set the tone for either of these women for the rest of the season going forward!

(Inside the ring, Darcy May Morgan has taken to posing on the turnbuckles with her briefcase, raising it with a confident smirk as her entrance music continues to play over the speakers, before the scene fades out on the shot of her still on the turnbuckles.)

(‘Death Star’ by Sufjan Stevens starts playing as Tom Cruise comes out, walking to the ring as everyone in the audience is seen interested in watching this guy. He walks out as Persephone feels exhausted just by knowing his name and his existence. As he is seen entering the ring, Bella Braxton starts her ring introduction.)

Bella Braxton: This match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!! Introducing first, from Los Angeles, California. Weighing in at 225 pounds, he is TOM CRUISE!!!!!!!!!

Persephone: Just by first glance, I don’t like this guy.

James Peters: Tom Cruise is a new competitor in Voltage and he possibly could be a big star.

Persephone: First of all, as he explained himself: He wasn’t even from LA! He is from Indiana and he is definitely trying so bad to look like a star.

Rich Russillo: I mean he definitely looks like someone promising. I could see him in the spotlight in sudden times. I don’t think there’s any problem at all.

Persephone: He looks like one former wrestler so bad I want to point fingers.

James Peters: I mean if he looks like someone, he’s good. He’s pretty attractive.

Persephone: How can you determine that though? You’re a guy saying that other guy is attractive. Isn’t that, gay?

Rich Russillo: I don’t know about him but you need to get all the way off his back.

Persephone: Ugh.

Rich Russillo: Now, Peters: Do you think that this guy could pull something great in his debut?

James Peters: I think that’s certainly the case right here. However, his opponent is actually a great performer so he’ll have to try his hardest.

Rich Russillo: He’s going to be up against a tag team championships contender! That is going to be very hard for him. So he needs to prepare himself in the best way possible.

Persephone: You guys don’t even see the logic here?

James Peters: What is more logical than a debut with a surprising ending? If he can show something, it better be tonight. Because he really should prove something or else his signings here will be worth it.

Rich Russillo: I guess this will be a Mission: Impossible for him.

Persephone: I hope you live to regret that pun. Forever.

Rich Russillo: I don’t think I will ever.

(As ‘Death Star’ by Surfjan Stevens died down as Tom Cruise’s opponent is coming out to the ring. ‘Masterpiece’ by SCANDAL starts playing as Miku Sakai is accompanied by her IDOL-GUN partner, Hikari Kanno and she is seen walking to the ring, with a full sassy pose. Bella Braxton continues her introduction.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Fukui Japan, weighing in at 110 pounds, accompanied by Hikari Kanno, MIKU SAKAI!!!!!!

James Peters: At King Of Elite, Miku Sakai will be fighting alongside her partner right there, Hikari Kanno as IDOL-GUN is going to fight for the tag team championships against 3 other teams.

Rich Russillo: Interestingly enough, their match against Holly Arrow and Kensingten Calhoun-Astor got cancelled just for this title match so they better not waste the chance that they have.

Persephone: They’re just like a month into their career, they can’t easily win a championship in that span of time.

Rich Russillo: Everything is possible here, there is nobody that cannot do anything in Voltage.

Persephone: You guys really believed in fairy tales. We all know all of these aren’t happening. There are differences.

James Peters: You believe in reality overthrowing hard work and dedication?

Persephone: What are they working hard on, their OnlyFans? It doesn’t sound exciting.

Rich Russillo: OnlyFans accounts are exciting, what do you mean?!

Persephone: You’re weird.

James Peters: All we know right now is that Miku will do anything that she could to make sure that Tom Cruise doesn’t pull an upset tonight.

Rich Russillo: I believe she will dominate him tonight.

Persephone: I mean when compared, it’s believable that Miku will win.

James Peters: What do you mean by that?

Rich Russillo: I mean Miku Sakai is even more experienced when you think about it.

Persephone: She is probably just better than Tom Cruise. I mean no upsets will be coming.

James Peters: As everyone knows, Miku Sakai was a former Twitch streamer so that is already a skill. Her army of simps are getting too big!

Rich Russillo: Their level of simping will beat us, because we don’t simp! Am I right, my sweet queen Pers-

Persephone: When can the match start? Please ring the bell.

Rich Russillo: They would never ring the bell when I’m talk-

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: Tom Cruise quickly locks up with Miku Sakai as he is seen controlling the bout. He got his hands in and he rolls Miku with a Snapmare but Miku managed to stand up by herself and she caught him in a headlock, Cruise throws her to the ropes and Miku quickly attempted a Hurricanrana but Cruise holds on and a Powerbomb attempt was done only for Miku to escape and a knee strike to the face of Tom Cruise!

Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai tried to go for another headlock and she is pushed to the ropes, Tom Cruise with a Big Boot but Miku ducked and a Sleeper Hold is done and Cruise goes ducking down and he pushes Miku to the turnbuckle! An elbow by Tom Cruise sending Miku off with a full damage. Tom quickly tried to throw her to the other side only for her to counter. Miku now throws Tom Cruise to the outside. He is sitting on the apron. Miku charged for a Clothesline but Tom Cruise caught her with a Flapjack and both of them landed on the outside!

Persephone: That’s a very brutal case I’ve seen from a rookie. They’re usually soft but this guy is trying. Okay, let’s see.

James Peters: Tom Cruise quickly gets up and he quickly grabs Miku by the head and Miku with a Jawbreaker! Miku throws Tom Cruise to the steps, Tom ran there and he managed to jump off the steps, ONLY FOR HIKARI KANNO TO SNEAKILY SEND A SMALL KICK SENDING HIM BOUNCING DOWN! The referee looks at Hikari Kanno, he is getting full suspicions. Hikari quickly flipped him off. 

Rich Russillo: That’s not really nice from tag team championships contenders. Miku quickly got Tom Cruise and his head gets thrown to the apron, this is going to be tough for him! Miku quickly put him back in the ring. Miku goes to the top rope and she is waiting for Cruise to get up, there he goes. Miku quick with a Tornado DDT, ONLY TO GET COUNTERED BY CRUISE. Cruise with a Snap Suplex! 

James Peters: Cruise quickly throws her to the corner. Tom Cruise quickly runs and a Corner Dropkick is done! Miku is almost down, Cruise quickly ran back for another back to back kicks, however Hikari Kanno quickly caught his feet and Cruise quickly fell down. Cruise told the referee about it but Hikari is telling the referee that she did nothing. The referee must be a simp!

Persephone: This is definitely unfair for them. The referee clearly loves to get his soap when watching IDOL-GUN.

Rich Russillo: The referee just let it go and Cruise continued his offense on Miku but Miku strikes back! Miku with some elbows to the head of Tom Cruise and Miku quickly throws him to the corner, Stingers Splash! She throws him to the ropes, Monkey Flip! Tom Cruise stood up on his feet, Standing Senton bomb attempt but Miku got her knees up! Cruise is holding his back, Miku quickly clotheslines him out of the ring again. Miku with a Tope Con Hilo attempt and OH, TOM CRUISE GRABBED AND THROWS HIKARI KANNO AND MIKU COLLIDED WITH HER TAG TEAM PARTNER!

James Peters: Miku looked in shock as Tom Cruise is seen laughing right now. He quickly panicked as Miku Sakai was opening up her rage mode, she was chasing me all the way through, but Tom managed to get into the ring again, Miku also followed. Miku ran to him and he caught her with a Discus Punch, a Russian Leg Sweep by Tom Cruise! This man is definitely an action star.

Persephone: Please stop. Making. References. I’m getting tired of listening to you guys.

Rich Russillo: Why are you angry? These references are fun as hell!

James Peters: Please don’t make an argument out of a bad thing. Now, back with them. Tom Cruise now catches her back with a headlock, Miku with a couple of punches and Tom Cruise let her go, she ran to the ropes, Tom Cruise almost got her, Wheelbarrow Bulldog sending him down again! 

Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai got him up and a kick to the gut and a sudden DDT by Tom Cruise is done. This kid is doing an impressive job!

James Peters: I believe for a rookie doing his debut, he is definitely doing a very solid job. I mean this is up against one half of possible future tag team champions. I wonder what really is going to happen. Tom Cruise quickly grabs a hold of his opponents as a chop was done to Miku, and another one! And another one, Tom Cruise quickly throws her to the ropes, and a kick to her gut sends her flying, she’s in sitting position, Tom Cruise with a kick to her back. Tom with another headlock, Miku pushes him to the ropes and Tom got her and she got thrown to the ropes, Miku jumped to the ropes, BLOCKBUSTER TO TOM!

Rich Russillo: That was a very impressive maneuver by Miku Sakai. She is indeed very testing this rookie. She is showing off her qualities while this new guy with the actor name is indeed trying his best. However, the effort wasn’t even enough to handle this lady.

James Peters: I don’t know about you, but I think this kid’s potential should not be underestimated at all. 

Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai quickly throws Tom Cruise to the turnbuckle and he is indeed stuck there. Miku with a Bronco Buster but Tom Cruise got out of the way and Miku hits her own Sakai! Tom Cruise was out of the ring as he escaped. The referee looked at Miku, focusing on her more than the action down there. HIKARI WITH A SUDDEN SAITO SUPLEX AND SHE THROWS TOM CRUISE BACK IN THE RING! HIKARI QUICKLY HIDES HERSELF INSIDE THE RING TO MAKE SURE THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE ANYTHING!

Persephone: Oh come on. He’s deaf!

James Peters: Miku is holding her Sakai while also waiting for her opponent to even get up. She is signalling for her finisher, Tom Cruise is up, almost unconscious and MIKU CAUGHT HIM WITH A NIGHT NIGHT!!!!!!! DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER AND TOM CRUISE IS CERTAINLY DOWN. MIKU WITH THE PIN.

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

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, Miku Sakai!!!!

Persephone: Yep, she’s not a threat.

Rich Russillo: What did you mean?

Persephone: The usage of Hikari Kanno is obvious. Is this your tag team champion?

James Peters: It’s just a normal day in her life. I’m sure she’s normal with it. Why not talk about the rookie Tom Cruise?

Rich Russillo: He did good against Miku Sakai so we need to applaud him for that 

Persephone: Hopefully he will be worth it.

(‘Masterpiece’ by SCANDAL plays out as Miku Sakai’s hand was raised by the referee as Tom Cruise is seen unconscious inside the ring, Hikari Kanno enters the ring to celebrate with her tag team partner.)

(The camera fades backstage, and pans to Sofia Clarke who stands there with a microphone in hand. She smiles, before she begins to speak.)

Sofia Clarke: Hello, we have seen what has occurred between Azrael and Candice Blair in the last month or so which culminated to deadly results and Azrael being thrown in jail after a vicious attack, and fatality at the hands of the monster at the TLA Poon Palace. We then saw Mr. Jacobs last week berate Candice and blame her for the attempts to set him free along with TLA. Now things have not only gotten out of hand, uncontrollable even and many are speculating that another life is now in danger, that being of Candice Blair who is with me right now.

(Candice comes on screen wearing jeans, a white long sleeve cut off halter top and opened toed Jimmy Choo heels. Looking beautiful as ever but also seems to be worried, as she half smiles.)

Sofia Clarke: Candice, thank you so much for joining me here tonight. We saw Mr. Jacobs come out and blame you for everything that happened to Azrael this past last week, where he was thrown in jail after the incident at the Poon Palace, he says that it was your doing and whatever happened was all your fault. Those are some pretty big and harsh accusations here, we all saw how you reacted to Mr. Jacobs after your huge win against Holly Arrow last week, which by the way congratulations.

Candice Blair: Thank you.

Sofia Clarke: So now, everyone wants to know how you feel about this entire situation. Please be honest, because this is an extremely difficult time for the family of one young Poon.

(Candice looked distraught, trying to compose herself in the best possible manner, before she finally was able to talk about the situation.)

Candice Blair: First off, my condolences go out to the family of the Poon, I have tried to reach out to them, pay for funeral expenses, do whatever I can to ensure that she and her family get full compensation and not have to worry about anything. No money or deed will bring their daughter back, but it is the least I can do during this troubling and difficult time. I am completely horrified about this, Sofia. All I wanted was to do the right thing with him, give him a chance to earn his freedom, rehabilitate, live a normal life like the rest of us, there was no way that he was ever going to experience this without his freedom. I genuinely want what is best for him, I meant nothing ill by this, it was not what I wanted, I would never put anyone in that type of situation or someone’s life at risk, you know that is not me, Sofia. What happened was tragic, and I don’t want to see anyone hurt anymore by this.

Sofia Clarke: Candice, the next one that could be hurt is you, because Mr. Jacobs made sure the match was made at King of Elite, Candice Blair versus Azrael. You are walking into the unknown, we don’t know how he will react, and this could put your career and even your life in grave danger.

(With a nod, Candice knows that Sofia is telling the truth. She lets out a sigh before continuing to speak…)

Candice Blair: I know it is, and I have to just continue to try and make it right, I want what is best, I even tried to go to the prison to see him, and whatever it takes Sofia, if I have to continue apologizing to Azrael I will. I’m not afraid to step in the ring with him, okay maybe I am some, but I will do it, I won’t back down from a fight and if that means I have to face him head on at King of Elite I will, but that doesn’t mean I will continue to keep trying and make things right with Azrael and….

(But before she could finish, Mr. Jacobs shows up and walks up right to her, cane in hand. Candice backs up a little, seeing the scowl impression on his face, as Mr. Jacobs just stares into her eyes.)

Sofia Clarke: Mr. Jacobs, you are here and….

Mr. Jacobs: I am not talking to you so please shut up, do your job and hold the damn mic while I address this harlot!

(Sofia Clarke seems a little shaken by his tone of voice. Mr. Jacobs turns back to Candice.)

Mr. Jacobs: You couldn’t leave enough alone, could you, Candice!? All you had to do was heed my warning and instead the blood of a Poon is on YOUR HANDS! This could have all been avoided, but you thought it would be cute to hashtag Free Azrael or whatever other nonsense that buffoon, TLA came up with. Now someone has died, he was sent to jail, and I have had to extricate him from the real world until he has his bearings again, don’t you understand Candice that no apology is going to do anything!? This was all your fault! Now you want to come out here and tell the EAW Universe how sorry you were, yet when all this was happening, it was all fun and games, now you see those actions have heavy consequences!

Candice Blair: I already told you I was sorry, I will apologize to Azrael, anything I can do to fix things! If having a match with him at King of Elite is the answer, then so be it! I am prepared to step in the ring with him, I’m not stupid, everyone saw what happened the last time I was in the ring with him, I wish there were another way, if I could just talk to him and….

Mr. Jacobs: NO!

Candice Blair: I…. just let me talk to him! I am sure that I can get through and….

Mr. Jacobs: I SAID NO!

(As Mr. Jacobs cuts her off, this time getting right up to her face.)

Mr. Jacobs: Azrael will never be the same again. For whatever fucked up reason he trusted you little harlot and yes, you betrayed him, and that’s why I have tried to keep him secluded. Azrael is a monster and doesn’t know how to do anything else other than destroy, do you understand me!? At King of Elite, my sweet little Candice, you’re going to experience this firsthand!

Candice Blair: I am not afraid of you Mr. Jacobs, I have already told you that I apologize for this, the last thing I wanted was any of this to happen to Azrael! I will do whatever I can to help him, but you need to back off, this is my personal space, and the air is not free! I am trying here to be not only understanding but helpful, I will not though let you continue to berate me. I am SORRY Mr. Jacobs, from the bottom of my heart, I was only trying to help!

(Mr. Jacobs backs up a little, seemingly easing up on Candice, holding his arm up in the air.)

Mr. Jacobs: I do not think you utterly understand the severity of this situation, Candice! What you have done has irreparable damages that even I cannot fix thanks to you! Do you really want to help?

Candice Blair: I am sorry! How many times do I have to say that! Nothing would please me more to help! Seriously, I will do whatever it takes, I do want to fix this anyway I can!

Mr. Jacobs: Then I only need you to do one thing for me and Azrael.

Candice Blair: Name it.

Mr. Jacobs: Well, I need you to…..

(Suddenly Mr. Jacobs swings the cane hitting Candice square on the side of her neck, stunning her as she falls into the wall, Sofia Clarke screams and drops the mic, running out of the way. Candice holds her neck, a bit dazed, Jacobs stands over her, lifting the cane up over his head….)

Mr. Jacobs: …… BLEED!

(Mr. Jacobs slams the cane across the shoulder of Candice as she screams in pain, he does it again and again and again, then transfers to her bare back before standing behind her and choking Candice with the cane! She tries to gasp for air, reaching for anything to help her, trying to get up, he slams her headfirst into the wall, crushing her nose and making her bleed profusely from it! Candice who bends over holding her face, Mr. Jacobs raises the cane again this time swinging down hard on the back of Candice neck instantly knocking her unconscious as she falls flat on her face onto the cold concrete floor sprawled out. Mr. Jacobs grabs the microphone from Sofia Clarke who was already some feet away.)

Mr. Jacobs: DO YOU SEE WHAT SHE MADE ME DO!? WITNESS THIS MS. CLARKE! WITNESS WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO TRY TO TAKE MY BROTHER AWAY FROM ME! SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THIS! SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO INTERFERE IN OUR AFFAIRS BUT YOU SEE THIS!?

(Mr. Jacobs lifts Candice head up by her long silver hair, holding her face, he wipes some of the blood off her face.)

Mr. Jacobs: LOOK AT HER, SO PRETTY, SO BEAUTIFUL AND THIS IS WHAT AZRAEL WANTED! I TOLD HER AND I WILL TELL YOU THE SAME THING, THE POONS BLOOD IS ON HER HANDS!

(Mr. Jacobs drops Candice head and gets back upright, smearing her blood on his shirt. He then walks off camera for a moment and comes back with Azrael’s chain.)

Sofia Clarke: What are you doing!? SOMEBODY HELP US! SECURITY! ANYONE!

(Mr. Jacobs grabs Candice ankle, lifting her leg and taking off her heels, throwing them down the hallway, he then ties the collar of the chain around her ankles and feet, throwing the other part of the chain over the beam above them on the ceiling. He looks at Sofia Clarke with a Sadistic look on his face, smiling now.)

Mr. Jacobs: AT KING OF ELITE, CANDICE BLAIR WILL BE THE HUNTED! THIS LITTLE WHORE WILL BE THE PREY! THIS SLUT WILL BE AZRAEL’S FRESH KILL! AND THERE ISN’T A GODDAMN THING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT! DO YOU HEAR ME!?

(Sofia Clarke looks on in horror as Mr. Jacobs grabs the chain and starts pulling, Candice feet and legs elevate first before then her entire body is pulled off the floor, dripping blood from her face as he continues to pull her all the way upside down and ties the chain to hold Candice unconscious upside down, he then squats down next to her brushing some of her bloody hair back, grabbing what looks to be a small knife, cutting a strand of her hair, as he begins to smell and sniff it much to the disgust of Sofia Clarke.)

Mr. Jacobs: He was right, she does smell so sweet. At King of Elite Azrael is going to finish the job I started, do you hear me? FINISH IT!

(He grabs Candice and spins her some before breaking out in laughter, grabbing his cane again ready to beat her more while she is still unconscious when suddenly officials and security come into the scene, Sofia is relieved as Mr. Jacobs starts to laugh, slowly backing off, officials start yelling at him as Candice hangs upside down, she slowly starts to move some as medical staff check on her.)

Official: CUT HER DOWN NOW!

(The officials and security try to untie the chain while she hangs upside down like the fresh kill of the hunt. Mr. Jacobs can be heard laughing while walking down the hallway and away from the scene. They finally are able to get Candice down, slowly stirring, coughing up blood as this profoundly serious situation has taken a turn for the worse, the EMT’s prepare to rush her to a medical facility as you can still hear Mr. Jacobs laughing.)

(The camera cuts over to Bella Braxton stood in the center of the ring, looking to start her announcements for the next match as the crowd roars with anticipation.)

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

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!

(“Born For This” by Paramore sounds throughout as Holly Arrow makes her way down to the ring, Kensington Calhoun-Astor following short behind, as the virtual crowd give Holly nothing but a warm reception.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Hailing from Aberdeen, Washington, weighing in at 151 pounds, accompanied to the ring by Kensington Calhoun-Astor…’THE DIAMOND DARLING’…HOLLY ARROW!!!

James Peters: Holly Arrow is here, and she’s a talent that didn’t take long to begin a name for herself on Voltage. Competing in some high profile matches throughout her tenure here so far, even managing to have a Specialists Title match against the current champ, Kasey Kaos.

Rich Russillo: No offense to Holly, but I wouldn’t exactly call her match tonight a high profile one. She’s going up against Catalina Flowers, and we already know the general consensus about her here in EAW. Catalina certainly not doing anything to endear herself to the EAW audience.

Persephone: Ya think?? She’s very “abrasive.”

(Holly Arrow settles in the ring with Kensington on the apron, yelling words of encouragement at Arrow. The groans of the EAW audience are soon heard when “Roses (Imanbek Remix)” by SAINt JHN kicks in. Catalina soon makes her way out from the curtain, as expected, with her imposing brothers by her side.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent! Hailing from Miami, Florida, weighing in at 120 pounds, accompanied to the ring by Los Hermanos Flores…’THE CARRIBEAN ROSE’…CATALINA FLOWERS!!

James Peters: Speak of the devil, Catalina Flowers is here, and she’s looking to do nothing more than follow up on that big win over Lisa Wren last week!

Rich Russillo: Say what you want about her tactics, she’s proven they can work, and help get her the victory. However, I don’t know how well said tactics will work tonight.

James Peters: She managed to beat Lisa Wren pretty much clean last week, I’m not counting out Catalina one bit, but Holly Arrow is no slouch in the very least. Plus, she has backup on the outside in Kensington to make a difference against Los Hermanos Flores. 

Persephone: Yeah, but do you really think Kensington is gonna be able to fend the two heavys off?

James Peters: Only one way to find out.

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: There’s the bell, and this thing is underway as Holly Arrow and Catalina Flowers both get into fighting stances. Holly Arrow looks to be closing in on Catalina Flowers, who keeps backing up in her corner. ARROW LUNGES FOR CATALINA- but Catalina dips her upper body through the middle rope, and the ref is gonna have no choice but to make Holly Arrow back up from Catalina.

Rich Russillo: Early signs of irritation already on display by Arrow, we know the game by Catalina, that’s exactly the reaction she wants. Maybe not, however, HUGE RIGHT FROM HOLLY ARROW THAT LOOKS TO HAVE CLEANED THE CLOCK OF CATALINA WHO CRUMBLES DOWN IN THE CORNER!

Kensington Calhoun-Astor: I taught her that, I taught her that one! :blessed:

Rich Russillo: Holly Arrow is looking to follow up with some more offense on Catalina, who quickly realizes the situation and fleas to the outside. Catalina is clutching at that jaw of hers, and the fans are cheering Holly in the hopes that she might have just shut Catalina u-

(Flowers grabs at her jaw on the outside, but wastes no time to open her mouth again, yelling trash talk at Arrow, which beckons her to go after Flowers.)

James Peters: The trash talk of Catalina is riling up Arrow, AND HOLLY CHASES CATALINA ALL THE WAY AROUND THE RING! CATALINA SLIDES IN, HOLLY ARROW LEAPS ON THE APRON! HUGE FOREARM SHOT CRACKS THE JAW OF CATALINA, WHO WAS LOOKING TO CHEAP SHOT ARROW! HOLLY JUMPS TO THE TOP ROPE! AND COMES FLYING DOWN FROM THE TOP WITH A DIVING KNEE STRIKE!CATALINA LOOKS TO BE OUT, IS THIS BOUT ALREADY OVER??

ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHHHRRRRRR-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY CATALINA! That was a close one, the explosiveness of Arrow proving to be a lot for Catalina to handle right now. But you can’t say she isn’t egging it on hers, constantly doing her best to peeve off Arrow. And now Catalina attempts to flea to the outside once more, but Holly gets ahold of her ankle and pulls her back in, Catalina hanging onto those ropes for seemingly dear life!

James Peters: Holly Arrow is using all her might to peel Flowers off, but it’s proving no use! The referee having to try and usher Arrow away now to create some separation- OH! POKE IN THE EYE BY CATALINA FLOWERS, BEHIND THE REF’S BACK! AND CATALINA SLAMS HOLLY ARROW DOWN TO THE MAT AFTER GRABBING A HANDFUL OF HAIR! AND NOW CATALINA GROUNDS HOLLY FOR A HEADLOCK!

Kensington Calhoun-Astor: REF! DID YOU NOT SEE THAT DAMN JEZEBEL CHEAT?!

Persephone: Jezebel? Certainly not the word I expected someone like Kensington to call a Hispanic woman like Catalina.

Rich Russillo: :woah: Meanwhile, Holly Arrow just trapped in the headlock. Trying to pry the arm of Catalina from around her head, but Catalina has it cinched in tight. And now- what the? Catalina just licked the side of Holly Arrow’s face, is this another attempt at mind games?

Persephone: Looks like an attempt to spread Corona.

James Peters: Nothing but disrespect on display by Catalina, and that’s gonna be the thing that really brings Holly alive! Holly working her way back to her feet, and trying to pivot herself behind Catalina for what looks to be a back Suplex! HOLLY GETS CATALINA UP- BUT CATALINA PUTS HER WEIGHT BACK DOWN TO TAKE HOLLY TO THE GROUND WITH THE HEADLOCK!

Catalina Flowers: All day long!

Rich Russillo: Catalina has once again grounded Arrow, and that’s going to undoubtedly wear her down! Holly again fights back to her feet in this headlock! Catalina tries to take her down with it again, but Holly Arrow to plant her feet this time, not allowing that to happen again.

James Peters: You can see the look of panic on Catalina’s face, AS HOLLY IS ABLE TO FINALLY SLIP OUT OF THIS HEADLOCK! AND CATALINA GETS SHOVED INTO THE CORNER! HOLLY CHARGES IN- CATALINA GETS THE BOOT UP, HOLLY ANTICIPATED IT! AND USES THE LEG TO PULL CATALINA IN FOR A LARIAT!

Rich Russillo: Catalina Flowers definitely wasn’t anticipating that one! And now Catalina brought up by Holly, a Suplex attempt by Arrow! Catalina doing her best to hold the weight down, and stop Holly from lifting her! Shots to the body by Catalina! BUT THAT DOESNT STOP HER FROM GETTING SUPLEXED BY ARROW!

James Peters: Holly managed to fight through the pain! Catalina is begging Holly off from inflicting any more punishment upon her! CATALINA GRABBED THE ARM OF ARROW, AND PULLED HER TO THE OUTSIDE! HOLLY JUST WENT TUMBLING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE!

Rich Russillo: Kensington is trying to give some words of encouragement to the downed Holly, but Catalina interrupts that by grabbing Holly by hair and bringing her back to her feet. AND ARROW JUST GETS CHUCKED RIBS FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! AND CATALINA JUST PUSHED HOLLY FACE-FIRST INTO THE PLEXIGLASS WALL!

James Peters: Holly is once again grabbed up by Catalina, and this time it’s looking like Arrow is gonna be slammed face first on those steel step- HOLLY BLOCKED IT! CATALINA ATTEMPTS TO SLAM HER DOWN FACE FIRST ON THOSE STEPS AGAIN- HOLLY BLOCKS IT AGAIN! BACK ELBOW INTO THE MIDSECTION OF FLOWERS BY ARROW!

Rich Russillo: CATALINA IS THE ONE WHO GETS SLAMMED DOWN ON THOSE STEEL STEPS

NOW! AND CATALINA GOES INTO RETREAT, CRAWLING AWAY FROM ANYMORE WRATH! And would you look at that? Catalina “conveniently” crawls behind her brothers, who proceed to block Arrow from getting to her.

James Peters: Arrow seems to be in a rock in a hard place. She’s being barreled down by two imposing figures in Los Hermanos Flores.

Persephone: If it was Rex in this situation, he would’ve just pushed past those two easily! I bet Rex could bench press those two if he wanted too!

Rich Russillo: :roman:

James Peters: FLOWERS COMES BETWEEN BOTH HER BROTHERS, LOOKING TO SURPRISE ARROW WITH BOFETTA DE PERRA!! ARROW CAUGHT THE HAND, NOT GONNA LET THE SLAP CONNECT BY CATALINA! AND FLOWERS- LOOK OUT!! :krabs:

(All the commentators get out of dodge as Catalina Flowers clears the announce table after being thrown over there by Arrow. Holly throws Flowers back into the ring, while the commentators sit back down in their seats.)

Persephone: She realizes she could’ve given us a heads up or something, right?

James Peters: Think it was more-so spur of the moment on Holly’s part, as Los Hermanos Flores are fuming after having the planned distraction not work.

Rich Russillo: Holly Arrow jumps on the apron, and it looks like another attempt at intimidation by Los Hermanos Flores is done. Both just surrounding Holly on the floor, she’s looking down at them, wondering if they’re looking to pull something. OH MY GOD!!

James Peters: MY EARS ARE RINGING!

Persephone: WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS BITCH?!

James Peters: Catalina just violated the ears of Holly Arrow, and tv screens of the EAW faithful with that ear piercing scream of hers, I wouldn’t be surprised if Holly Arrow went death there! BUT CATALINA BRINGS HER IN THE RING FOR A QUICK PIN!

ONNNNEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

TH-

Persephone: Holly kicks out, but you mean to tell me she almost lost to a scream?

James Peters: Yeah, I don’t think I was too far off in my thought process, Holly may have actually been temporarily deafened by Catalina, and couldn’t hear the referee’s count. You can see Holly tapping on that ear, making sure it’s functioning correctly again.

Rich Russillo: To be fair, I think everyone is checking their ears after that scream. I’m not gonna tell Catalina what to do, especially with her brothers over here, but can she please not do that scream again?

James Peters: I hope so. But meanwhile in the ring, Holly is brought up to her feet by Catalina who hooks her up for a back Suplex, not many times you see this woman attempt actual wrestling maneuvers, but she isn’t exactly known for her in-ring technique so far. BACK SUPLEX ATTEMPT BY CATALINA, HOLLY FLIPS OUT OF IT AND LANDS ON HER FEET! BACKSTABBER!!

Rich Russillo: Catalina is pleading for mercy from Holly as she scurries over to the corner, favoring that back of hers after it got figuratively stabbed by Holly’s knees. Holly isn’t having it, especially after the screaming incident. A RUNNING KNEE TO CATALINA CONNECTS IN THE CORNER, HOLLY RUNS OFF THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND HITS ANOTHER RUNNING KNEE!!

James Peters: A DDT SPIKES CATALINA ON HER HEAD, AND THE IMPACT BOUNCES CATALINA ALL THE WAY TO HER FEET! Almost running off adrenaline, Catalina power walks her way towards an in the zone Holly Arrow before collapsing! Holly looks to be confused, but isn’t questioning what just went down, and takes to the top rope! ARE WE ABOUT TO PREPARE FOR TAKEOFF?!

Rich Russillo: LOS HERMANOS FLORES! They just got on the apron, and Holly’s attention is diverted for the time being, dropping off the top rope to confront those two! Los Hermanos Flores doing their best to buy time for their sister, BUT KENSINGTON PULLS BOTH MEN DOWN OFF THE APRON! But that may have been a big mistake, Los Hermanos Flores are pissed and trying to corner Kensington for a beat down.

Kensington Calhoun-Astor: No need to get feisty, fellas!

James Peters: KENSINGTON JUST PISSED OFF LOS HERMANOS FLORES AND THEY ARE CHASING AFTER HER ALL AROUND THE RING! Holly distracted by the chaos! Conflicted on whether she should help or continue fighting Catalina, who isn’t gonna give her a choice in the matter! ROLL UP BY FLOWERS, SHE’S GONNA STEAL IT!!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: ARROW KICKS OUT AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE! CATALINA IS DAMN NEAR APOPLECTIC, AND CHARGES AT HOLLY WITH HOPES OF FINISHING HER OFF HERE!

James Peters: PART II!! THE SPINNING BACK ELBOW BY ARROW JUST TAKES CATALINA OUT! COULD THIS BE IT?!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHHHRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(The crowd rejoice at hearing “Born For This” by Paramore play again, having seen Holly Arrow pick up the victory. Kensington Calhoun-Astor goes in the ring, looking to celebrate with Holly while Los Hermanos Flores’ concern for their sister takes over and they tend to her outside of the ring. Holly however, doesn’t look too happy seeing Kensingten once again get involved with her business.)

Bella Braxton: HERES YOUR WINNER..HOLLY ARROW!!!!

James Peters: It was a tough fight from Catalina Flowers, but in the end, Holly Arrow comes out on top.

Persephone: Tough fight? Catalina pretty much ran away for 90% of the match.

James Peters: Yeah, but the unorthodox tactics of hers paid off against Arrow for a while, and those brothers of hers almost got her a victory, but not tonight-

Rich Russillo: WAIT A MINUTE! SPEAKING OF HER BROTHERS, LOS HERMANOS FLORES JUST SLID INTO THE RING, AND THEY JUST CHARGED AFTER HOLLY AND KENSINGTEN! CATALINA TOOK THE LOSS TONIGHT AND IT LOOKS LIKE HER BROTHERS ARE LOOKING TO GET SOME PAYBACK!

James Peters: Oh thank God, Holly and Kensingten quickly manage to roll out of the ring before they could catch them! Kensingten and Holly are making their way up the ramp, and that was a close call, a very close call. Either way, congratulations to Holly Arrow!

(As “Born For This” continues playing, Holly and Kensingten make their way up the ramp while Los Hermanos Flores look absolutely pissed inside of the ring. Holly looks at Kensingten, and after remembering what just happened moments ago she shakes her head and walks back up the ramp, not even waiting for Kensingten as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)

(Commercial for Taco Bell featuring TLA and Captain Charisma. Their working relationship with EAW is running smoothly. :wow:)

(Voltage fades in and cuts to Captain Charisma’s office. The Voltage commissioner is sitting behind his desk, and he has company. HRDO and Jon Conning have joined him, and the three of them are trying to put their heads together to try and come up with some type of plan to get the Saudi Royal family back on their side. Having been disrespected two weeks in a row by Lisa Wren, Prince Fayyaad al Ziyad made it perfectly clear that he was going to have his family’s relationship severed with Elite Answers Wrestling. Whenever someone decides to fuck with Mr. DEDEDE’s money, it usually spells disaster for them, and rightfully so. The Chairman is a hard-working man, who demands perfection from his staff, and does not allow absolute insolence to go unpunished. To say DEDEDE was furious after Voltage went off the air last week would be a severe understatement.)

Captain Charisma: Short of firing Lisa, I’m not sure what else we can do. Every effort on our part this week to make amends has been rebuked.

HRDO: Well, you’re going to have to come up with something. You know damn well that you let this roster run wild, and it can’t come as any surprise to you that it was one of your own Elitists that put us in this position. Your absolute refusal to fire Lisa on the spot spoke volumes about the type of authority figure that you are, Matt.

Captain Charisma: :skip: And what’s that supposed to mean?

Jon Conning: You’re soft. You believe in allowing the inmates to run the asylum and while sometimes that makes for compelling and entertaining television, it’s not always the right way to be. When you refuse to hold people accountable for their actions, they believe they’re able to get away with anything, and Lisa Wren acting out and spitting on and slapping a fucking prince is a prime example of that.

(As always, Captain Charisma is quick to defend one of his roster members.)

Captain Charisma: Yes, Lisa’s actions were horrific and she does deserve to be punished, sitting out King of Elite and not being allowed back on Voltage for a few weeks is good enough. I am confident Lisa will learn from this and grow as a person, and come to understand that sometimes a person just has to swallow their pride and show someone else respect even if they believe certain people don’t deserve it. The culture of the Saudis isn’t something that is viewed as the norm here, so I understand why Lisa feels the way she does towards them. However, her actions were not justified, and that’s why she is suspended until further notice.

HRDO: So you believe that eventually allowing Lisa back into the ring is going to make things better with the Saudis?

Captain Charisma: I didn’t say, but I’m not willing to sacrifice a promising Elitist’s career just to appease some of our sponsors.

Jon Conning: Well I believe Ryan doesn’t share that same opinion. He said do whatever is necessary to get the Saudis back on our side, and Matt, you know good and goddamn well that he will fire you if you don’t fix this situation. You’ve been closely watched since the first Bloodsport event cost us Matel. You banned knives as a result, but that doesn’t stop your roster from running around and finding whatever the fuck else they can use as a makeshift weapon.

HRDO: Believe me, we tried to talk Prince Fayyaad out of coming to Voltage. It is literally the last brand we would ever want him to attend because it does not give an accurate portrayal of how EAW operates. But he insisted on attending Voltage, and to absolutely nobody’s show, Voltage fucked up. It always fucks up.

Captain Charisma: Well if a show that has more Hall of Famers and main eventers on it than any other brand is considered a fuck up, them I want us to continue “fucking up.” The men and women of Voltage pour their hearts and souls into everything they do, and I respect the hell out of that. We are the most competitive brand, the most watched brand, and the toughest brand, and Prince Fayyaad absolutely picked the perfect brand to visit.

HRDO: We can sit around all night long and debate this, but it isn’t going to solve our problem. I sent invitations out for King of Elite, so hopefully they will give us another chance and show up, allowing them to see how we truly operate on American soil. Obviously viewing all our talent should make up for some of the stupid shit he had to see on Voltage.

Jon Conning: And what if that doesn’t work?

(Captain Charisma can’t help but chuckle a bit. The situation is serious, but there’s nothing wrong with making light of it.)

Captain Charisma: We can just do what DEDEDE suggested in his rage filed diatribe and sell one of the girls to the Prince for a consolation prize.

(Sadly, HRDO and Jon Conning aren’t laughing.)

Jon Conning: You laugh, but I’m pretty sure Ryan was serious about that.

HRDO: His exact words were, ‘sell one of the dumb bitches if you have too. Do whatever you have to do to get the negotiations start again and I’m not joking around.’

Captain Charisma: :lupe:

Jon Conning: Do you think that would actually work?

HRDO & Captain Charisma: :comeagain:

Jon Conning: Well…

Captain Charisma: No.

HRDO: Well.

Jon Conning: I mean, to follow up some of what Ryan was saying, we have a lot of girls who need to earn their place in this company.

Captain Charisma: You can’t just sell someone to another person like a piece of cattle.

Jon Conning: Ryan got his own wife by force, and she worships him.

HRDO: I think that was just by pure luck…

Jon Conning: I think we should consider it.

Captain Charisma: I think you have lost your fucking mind.

HRDO: I just want the deal done and back on the table. Whatever you have to do, do it. I don’t ever want to have this conversation again and Matt, your job depends on it.

(A sigh escapes the lips of the Voltage commissioner and the show fades elsewhere.)

(An ad for TikTok plays, and it was meant to feature IDOL-GUN but they were deemed “too inappropriate” to appear.)

[SCREEN BAR — EARLIER THIS WEEK.]

(The scene fades outside of the EAW Performance Center in Newark, New Jersey. There is a giant stage with a banner that reads “Celebrate the Greatness of IDOL-GUN!” written on it. Across from the stage, the simp army is at full force with their IDOL-GUN merchandise, cosplay and posters. In front of the group is simps is IDOL-GUN’s number one simp, Robby who is decked out in his IDOL-GUN t-shirt as he is trying to calm down the chaotic simps, who just want their precious idols out here with them. Robby extends the megaphone near his lips as he begins to speak.)

Robby: (through the megaphone) Ladies, gentlemen, simps from across the country, we are here today to celebrate the greatness of our FUTURE EAW Unified Tag Team Champions! The best tag team on planet Earth, IDOL-GUN!

(The simps begin to cheer!)

Robby: (through the megaphone) Next week, they accomplish all of goals that they made just about a month ago. I mean, they arrived in EAW not so long ago and they’re already getting shots at the Unified Tag Team Champions! Our precious queens are already on their way to being part of the history books! :wow: It’s a great time to be an IDOL-GUN stan! They’ve defeated the EAW Champion and the number one contender at King of Elite! They’ve basically defeated the current Unified Tag Team Champions! They’ve outshined Myles and Minerva! Also, I feel like I should announce it, but we are going straight to EAW management about the win-loss record of IDOL-GUN! We are going to overturn those losses and no contests into WINS! #JusticeForHikari #JusticeForMiku #JusticeForIDOLGUN

(The simps’ cheering gets louder as an “IDOL-GUN” chant breaks out!)

Robby: (through the megaphone) By the sound of the chants, I’m guessing all of you want IDOL-GUN?

Simps: WE WANT IDOL-GUN! WE WANT IDOL-GUN! WE WANT IDOL-GUN!

Robby: (through the megaphone) I’m not going to keep you waiting anymore! Ladies and gentlemen… your NEXT Unified Tag Team Champions…Hikari Kanno, Miku Sakai…IDOL-GUN!!!!!!!

(IDOL-GUN, Hikari Kanno and Miku Sakai come out. Hikari is wearing a face mask. Miku is not wearing a face mask, but she managed to put on a super coote outfit on which is basically a slutty version of a Sailor Mars outfit. Meanwhile, Hikari is sporting a slutty version of a Sailor Uranus outfit. These two are showing as much skin as they probably can without it be considered public indecency. The simps are obsessed with their outfits as Robby hands both of them microphones before quickly making his way off the stage, standing on the side of the stage, giving their queens the time to speak.)

Hikari Kanno: Konnichiwa! 

Miku Sakai: All of you can bow at the sight of us….NOW!

(Not wasting anytime, the simps began to bow for IDOL-GUN like they’re complete royalty and from the way IDOL-GUN acts, it’s almost like they believe that they are royalty. The simps bow over and over again, showering IDOL-GUN with the love and adoration that they believe they are entitled too. This goes on for another moment. Miku Sakai is just loving this treatment. Hikari does too, but she’s had enough and would rather continue with their business.)

Hikari Kanno: Okay, you can rise back to your feet. Miku, you had your fun, but let’s get straight to business.

Miku Sakai: Fine. 🙄

Hikari Kanno: First off, we like to think Robby for organizing this entire event to celebrate the GREATNESS of IDOL-GUN! We don’t deserve you, Robby. Oh wait, we actually do!  😄January has been the craziest month of our entire lives. We’ve had our high points, low points, but it’s all been worth it as we’ve been acknowledge for our work enough to get ourselves a shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships! 

(The simps cheer!)

Hikari Kanno: Despite all the haters that we’ve gained during our past few weeks in EAW, IDOL-GUN has overcome all of that by our performances in the ring. We took down what was supposed to be the ‘best’ on Voltage in EAW Champion, SOSA Henderson and the number one contender for the title, Terry Chambers. We basically have a victory over the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions, The Realm! We are appreciative that Robby is basically going to take that result to EAW management and hopefully, we’ll be able to do something about it! Despite taking all of Voltage’s ‘best talents’ to their limit, outshining them and proving that they got nothing on us, it has lead to people scrutinizing us. They want to label us as ‘rookies,’ who don’t know any better. They’re treated of the power that Miku and I possess. They don’t think that we have the ‘right’ to speak like we do. Perhaps, it’s because they are so used to coasting on Voltage, never having to worry to let someone place their flaws out in the open. Due to that, Miku and I have been living RENT FREE in everyone’s minds. Ask The Realm, SOSA, Terry, etc. We are going to surpass all of them by becoming the fastest rising tag team that this company has ever seen! 

???: LET ME LICK YOUR ASSHOLE, MIKU!!!!!

Miku Sakai: Not this guy again. 😫

(The ‘Asshole’ Guy, the same guy who left the disturbing comments on Hikari Kanno’s OnlyFans and Miku Sakai’s Instagram account, tries to make their way up the stage, but they are stopped by the IDOL-GUN personal security guard before he could make it there.)

Asshole Guy: MARRY ME, HIKARI! LET ME CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF YOU!!!!!

Hikari Kanno: No thanks, we haven’t won the Unified Tag Team Championships yet.

Asshole Guy: I LOVE YOU, IDOL-GUN! I WILL NEVER STOP LOVING YOU! I WILL DO ANYTHING TO HAVE YOU —

(The Asshole Guy is completely out of the picture by the security. IDOL-GUN looks completely weirded out. Hikari Kanno and Miku Sakai look at each other with disgust on their face before resuming this entire celebration.)

Hikari Kanno: It wouldn’t be a gathering without someone threatening to come onto the stage.  Let’s move on, shall we? Okay, so everyone should be aware that we have a huge match up next weekend. This entire event was organized to rally everyone together and promote the match, but we didn’t come here alone.

Miku Sakai: We did not! IDOL-GUN is obsessed with doing a bit of charity here and there, so we invited one of the teams that we’re facing at King of Elite! They are graciously taking time out of their busy, busy schedules to join us and show some TLC to all of you guys! 

Hikari Kanno: Before we bring The Maidens of Malpractice out here, we just want to show all of you who they are before they come out and join you all! Roll the footage!

(Highlights of the infamous ‘Mud Wrasslin’’ match at Pain for Pride 13 begins to play in the green screen behind them. Every sexual thing that could be highlight is played from both Alexis Chambers and Dr. Bethany Blue’s bikini tops falling off to both of them trying to drown the other in the mud. It makes sure to zoom in on the jiggling of their asses and bouncing of their breasts. It ends with the kiss in front of an unconscious Jake Smith, shocking the EAW Universe on doing such a thing.)

(The highlight video ends.)

Miku Sakai: Man, that looked fun. It gives me a couple of ideas for my next OnlyFans video. 

Hikari Kanno: Now, that all of you have an idea of who one of our opponents are, why don’t we bring them out? Bethany, Alexis, please come onto the stage!

(No one comes onto the stage as IDOL-GUN are all confused.)

Miku Sakai: Aww, it seems like they’re shy! Why don’t we show them some encouragement!

(The simps begin to somewhat cheer, but not as loud as earlier. Still, The Maidens of Malpractice don’t come out.)

Hikari Kanno: Omg, so shy… *slowly gets to the end of the stage* (whispers to Robby) Where the hell is Art with Alexis and Bethany??!

Robby: He’s been having a few issues with them, but he just notified me that he’s already ready. Greet them again.

Hikari Kanno: He better be because IDOL-GUN hates being looked at as fools.

(Hikari Kanno makes her position back on the stage with Miku Sakai. She tries to form a fake smile on her face.)

Hikari Kanno: For the third time, Alexis, Bethany, please come onto the stage! We don’t bite!

Miku Sakai: Yet.

(This time, in perfect timing, The Maidens of Malpractice make it onto the stage, but it’s not Alexis Chambers or Dr. Bethany Blue, but two blow up dolls that look exactly like them that their agent, Art is trying to hold up. Miku Sakai gets her hands on the Alexis blow up doll and Hikari gets her hands on the Bethany blow up doll. Both dolls are designed to look similar to the Maidens.)

Miku Sakai: Wow, it’s amazing that you can join us Alexis and Bethany! 

Hikari Kanno: It’s so amazing that the two of you can join us! We know that you have a busy schedule, but we promise that this is gonna be worth it! 

Miku Sakai: I knew that the two of you wanted a ‘hands on’ approach with our beautiful fans! So, why don’t we give the people what they want?

(Miku Sakai throws the Alexis Chambers blow up doll to the fans. Hikari Kanno does the same thing with the Dr. Bethany Blue blow up doll. The simps are fighting over the blow up dolls before one of the guys manages to get their hands on the Alexis Chambers doll.)

Random Simp #1: These feel so realistic. Let me feel these tits.

(The Random Simp begins to grope and squeeze the breasts of the Alexis Chambers blow up doll, feeling very aroused at the moment.) 

Random Simp #2: Not as nice as Dr. Bethany Blue’s tits. :drool:

(The Dr. Bethany Blue blow up doll already has their top and lab coat off.)

Random Simp #3: You had her long enough, let me have her! 

(The Random Simp manages to get his hands on the Dr. Bethany Blue blow up doll. He whispers closely to Bethany’s ear, almost seductively.)

Random Simp #3: I can treat you better than Alexis ever could, baby. No need to worry. 

(The Random Simp begins to caress Dr. Bethany Blue’s hair as the other simps began to scream and demand their turns with the blow up dolls. Meanwhile, if you look behind one of the barriers that are grouping everyone together, we see Ronan Malosi looking on at the entire thing, taking a phone recording of the entire thing.)

Ronan Malosi: Ryan’s never going to believe any of this. :mjlol: WAIT…IS THAT ONE SIMP DRY HUMPING THE ALEXIS CHAMBER BLOW UP DOLL!?!??!?!?

(Footage of the guy dry humping the Alexis Chambers blow up doll isn’t seen and thank god for that, but IDOL-GUN is clearly looking amused from the top of the stage. The two of them are completely oblivious to the actual Maidens of Malpractice standing behind them. Suddenly, IDOL-GUN can feel that they are not alone on the stage. Miku Sakai and Hikari Kanno look at each other, almost defeating on whether to look behind them. After a moment of thought, they do turn around…)

(Alexis Chambers delivers a huge kick to the stomach of Miku Sakai. Dr. Bethany Blue delivers a giant headbutt to Hikari Kanno as the two women stagger back. Hikari tries to pounce on Bethany as Miku shows some sign of fighting back with Alexis Chambers. The simp army completely turns around to the stage as they’re cheering for their precious idols to dominate the Maidens of Malpractice.)

Random Simp #1: BEAT HER ASS, HIKARI!

Random Simp #2: SPIT ON HER FACE, MIKU!

(IDOL-GUN is seen getting the upper hand on this attack which satisfies their fans. They throw Alexis Chambers to one side of the stage as she goes tumbling down. Dr. Bethany Blue tries to fight back with Hikari Kanno, but Miku Sakai having her focus on Bethany makes it difficult for the Doctor to gain some momentum! The two of them stomp down on Bethany before getting her up! Suddenly, Alexis Chambers gets on the back of Hikari. Miku tries to get Alexis off Hikari’s back, but Alexis pokes Miku in the eyes before Bethany throws Hikari off the stage.)

(The simps are able to catch Hikari Kanno and prevent her from falling. Hikari gives the Maidens the middle finger.)

Hikari Kanno: Screw you bitches.

(Out of nowhere, Alexis Chambers begins to pounce on Hikari Kanno, who is basically being carried by the fans. The weight of the two women is overwhelming for the simps and the two of them are now rolling over each other and punching each other across the face. Meanwhile, Dr. Bethany Blue knocks down Miku Sakai with a TDJ before throwing Miku off the stage. Happily, Hikari manages to catch her partner, but they all go down. Alexis reunites with Bethany on the stage as the crowd boos. One reason was that they attacked IDOL-GUN and the other reason is that they’re not showing any skin at all. The two women are in blue scrubs and face masks. Bethany has her white coat on.)

Alexis Chambers: That would show them for promoting our name without our consent. 

Dr. Bethany Blue: Hey! Hey, you!

(Finally, Ronan Malosi has been caught as he’s slowly putting away his iPhone. He wasn’t expecting to get caught, so there’s a look of panic on their faces.)

Alexis Chambers: Do you want a dose of what we just did to IDOL-GUN?

Ronan Malosi: That won’t be necessary. I was just running some errands and saw this entire thing going on — 

(Before The Maidens of Malpractice can get their hands on Ronan Malosi, Ronan completely runs away as fast as he can. It’s unclear where he runs too, but it’s none of their concern. The simps are basically booing the hell out of the Maidens as a couple simps carry IDOL-GUN to safety. There are a  few simps remaining and looking at the Maidens. Dr. Bethany Blue gets out a needle and syringe.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Since this is a gathering of more than ten people, how many of you haven’t had the COVID-19 vaccine yet?

(The scene fades elsewhere.)

(Commercial for McDonalds featuring Terry Chambers, because some jokes never get old.)

(“Dream and Drive” by The Oral Cigarettes plays throughout the arena as Hikari Kanno steps from the curtain alongside Miku Sakai and the duo makes their way down to the ring.)

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

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!

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

James Peters: Impressive is the only words I can describe these two women, and they are skyrocketing to the top, they fell short last week against MASOCHISTxMANIFEST, but they get the opportunity to become the Unified Tag Team Champions with only a little over a month in their pocket.

Rich Russillo: A stark possibility but a few things need to happen, they must defeat three other teams that are at the top of the game right now. This will definitely be quite interesting, Hikari also needs to survive this match against an extremely dangerous man in Shane Gates.

Persephone: Whatever, this is like filler…. Wait that creepy doll is coming!?

(“Overlord” by Suicide Silence replaces Eddie’s theme, as it hits, and the crowd begins to boo. Shane Gates makes his way out, with Lizzie the Graveyard Doll in his hands as he slowly walks down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent, he hails from Huntington Beach, California… weighing in at 213 pounds… accompanied to the ring by Lizzie! “THE NATURAL BORN KILLER” SHANE GATES!!!!!

(Shane makes it to the ring, slowly getting in with a cold stare, looking at Hikari Kanno and then Miku Sakai as he places Lizzie in the corner post.)

(The referee checks on both wrestlers before calling for the bell and the start of the match.)

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

(Hikari quickly sprints across the ring, hitting Shane Gates with a forearm knocking him back some, but Shane Gates bounces off the ropes, going for a clothesline but Hikari ducks, swiftly connecting with a roundhouse kick as Shane can seem to find a defense backing up some, Hikari runs up with a high knee knocking him back, she goes to whip him but Shane Gates reverses….)

James Peters: Hikari Kanno starts off quick on Shane Gates and she was smothering him with kicks, attempting to throw him into the ropes but Gates reverses, he goes for a big boot, NO! Kanno rolls through, Gates turns into a dropkick flush on the face of Gates! He hasn’t fallen though! Hikari with another! Gates bounces off the ropes BUT HE HITS A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! NOI! HIKARI DODGES AGAIN! ELBOW STRIKE TO THE NECK! ANOTHER! ONE MORE AND SHANE GATES FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES! HIKARI NOW RUNS AND SUICIDE DIVE! CRUSHING GATES INTO THE SECURITY BARRIER!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno is picking up where she left off last week! Shane Gates is rattled; he doesn’t know what to do right now! The referee is starting the count as Hikari is back in the ring!

1!

2!

3!

4!

(Gates rolls back in and Kanno charges with a basement dropkick! She goes for a quick cover.)

ONE!!!!!!!!!!

TW….

Persephone: Come on, cheat or do something! End this quick! That doll creeps me out!

James Peters: Hikari has not let up on Shane Gates! She waits as he gets up on his feet, Hikari with a running neck breaker, NO! Gates catches her and swings her around into a huge back body drop! Hikari lands hard as Gates runs against the ropes, a quick leg drop on Hikari and the momentum of this match has changed! Gates now sits her up, driving the knee into her back! Over and over! Hikari is in pain, she was starting to work on Gates neck and shoulders, but he was able to catch her trying to deliver the neck breaker which could have surely done its damage!

Rich Russillo: Now he is driving the knee into her back and a rear chin lock! He bends her back some! This move isn’t going to get a submission, you have to give Gates credit, this is a wear down hold and Hikari Kanno is being slowed down, she came out of the gate, no pun intended and started to really take the offensive holds toward her to the point that it has become a focal point for Gates!

Persephone: This is boring wrestling, I mean really? Like actually do something to her, seriously!

(Shane Gates continues to bend Hikari back, trying to slow her down from what she has been doing in her attack with Gates. Hikari is trying to break out of it, Miku Sakai is outside the ring slamming her hands on the mat, she tries to go around the corner but runs into Lizzie, she quickly jerks and backs off…)

Miku Sakai: (Off-Mic) GET AWAY FROM ME CREEPY FUCKING DOLL!

James Peters: Lizzie hasn’t moved, but that little thing is not only a distraction it is rather terrifying! Hikari is starting to get back to her legs, wait, gets stands up, a stiff kick to her back! Another and Hikari is down! Shane Gates with the boots to the fallen Japanese star! Over and over, before he picks her up by the hair, whipping Hikari to the turnbuckle, rushing in, NO! Hikari sidestepped! Gates crashes into the turnbuckle! Hikari jumps, ROPE ASSISTED DRAGON SCREW NECK WHIP! SHANE GATES LANDS HARD! HIKARI RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES….

(Suddenly Hikari stops in her tracks, Lizzie is standing there by the ropes, she somehow moved from the corner, this does freak Hikari out some as she backs up a little, turning around….)

Rich Russillo: GATES WITH THE KILL SHOT! HE HIT KANNO HARD AND SHE MIGHT BE OUT! GATES WITH THE COVER!

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

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

THR…..

Persephone: I actually thought he had her! Damn it, how did I fall for that!?

James Peters: Hikari was able to get a shoulder up right at the nick of time! Gates grabs her by the hair, picking her up on his shoulders, walking around before powerslamming Kanno! He doesn’t go for the cover, instead drops to his knees and starts choking out Kanno! Miku quickly hops on the apron, Gates let’s go of the choke and charges Miku, but she drops to the floor the second he takes a swing at her, turning right into the Running big boot! Gates falls to the mats! Hikari has a chance here to pull a huge win on Shane Gates, she goes to climb the ropes but stops again, backing away as Lizzie the doll stands right in the corner, still trying to figure out how the hell Lizzie was able to get there!? How does she do that!?

Persephone: That thing is alive and possessed! I swear if it comes here, I am done!

(Hikari backs away some, she is still a little freaked out by that doll and how it moves around, wasting precious time that she could be using to beat down Shane Gates, she turns….)

Rich Russillo: SPINNING HEEL KICK! HIKARI TOOK THAT FLUSH IN THE JAW AND SHANE GATES PICKS HER UP…. DEAD MAN! INVERTED SITOUT POWERSLAM AND HIKARI IS DONE! THE REFEREE IS THERE FOR THE COVER!

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

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

THREE……

Persephone: How did she get a shoulder up!?

Rich Russillo: HIKARI WITH A SHOULDER UP!? SHANE GATES IS POUNDING HER FACE WITH FIST AFTER FIST! YOU CAN SEE THE FRUSTRATION STARTING TO MOUNT HERE! He picks up Hikari, lifting her up for a power bomb, no! Miku grabs Shane’s legs! He let’s go of her partner, then turns, he has Miku by the hair! Lifts her up and FOREARM TO MIKU, SHE FALLS TO THE FLOOR! HE TURNS AND HIKARI WITH A LEG LARIAT ON SHANE! HE FALLS TO THE MATS AND SHE GETS UP, RUNNING AGAINST THE ROPES, ROLLING THUNDER! GOING FOR A PIN!

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

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

THRE….

James Peters: SHANE GATES KICKS OUT! This two have been going at it for quite a while now and Shane Gates is looking to finds any momentum he can! She picks him up by the hair, whipping him into ropes, she charges in, Gates reverses, he hooks Hikari into a Powerslam… NO! She escapes from behind! SNAP SAITO SUPLEX ON GATES! THE POWER OF THAT WOMAN! SHE TOOK GATES DOWN AND HAS HIM DOWN FOR THE COVER!

ONE!!!!!!

TWO!!!!!!!!

THREE…..

Rich Russillo: GATES GETS THE SHOULDER UP AGAIN! HIKARI LOOKS AT THE REFEREE IN SHOCK! WE ALL THOUGHT IT WAS OVER BUT NO! IT IS NOT, HIKARI DOESN’T KNOW WHAT SHE HAS TO DO TO PUT GATES DOWN FOR GOOD! HE IS SLOWLY GETTING UP, LOOKS LIKE HE IS WAITING FOR GATES TO GET UP!

Persephone: See that suplex? ROCKS! I am telling you! Hit him again Hikari, mercifully end this!

Rich Russillo: She is waiting, as Gates gets to his feet, Hikari running full speed, BIG BOOT CAUGHT HIKARI AND SHE RAN RIGHT INTO THAT! HIKARI IS DOWN! GATES IS RUNNING ON PURE ADRENALINE NOW! HE PICKS UP KANNO, HERE WE GO AGAIN THIS TIME WITH THE IRON CLAW! HE HAS IT IN! ALL GATES HAS TO DO IS PICK HER UP FOR THE CHOKESLAM AND FINISH THE RECKONING! HERE COMES THE CHOKESLAM! NO!!!! HIKARIWITH A KICK TO THE GUT! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! GATES LET’S GO AND HIKARI WITH HER OWN CHOKESLAM!!!! NO!!!! GATES BATTERS HER ARM, LETTING IT GO! GATES WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! GATES DOESN’T GO FOR A PIN! INSTEAD, HE CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE! THE BIG MAN IS GETTING UP TO THE VERY TOP! HIKARI IS SLOWLY GETTING UP, GATES WITH A FLYING CLOTHESLINE! HE ALMOST TOOK KANNO’S HEAD OFF AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE COVER!

ONE!!!!!!!!!

TWO!!!!!!!!!!

THREE….

Persephone: STAY DOWN SOMEONE, DAMN IT!

(Gates is beside himself, he gets up and drags Kanno to the middle of the ring, he looks over at Lizzie, all while Miku Sakai is untying the top turnbuckle in the other corner, the referee is occupied with Gates and Kanno.)

James Peters: Miku is untying the turnbuckle and these two have shown they will go at any length to win matches and it could be the difference at King of Elite! We may be looking at the new Unified Tag Team Champions! Gates is picking up Hikari Kanno, he is looking to finish this once and for all, Gates, again THE RECKONING! HE IS TRYING TO CLAW HIKARI KANNO! HE IS ABOUT TO HAVE IT LOCKED IN… NO! MIKU IS ON THE APRON AGAIN….. A KICK TO THE GROIN OF SHANE GATES WHILE THE REFEREE HAD HIS ATTENTION ON MIKU! GATES IS HURT, HIKARI WHIPS HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, CHEST FIRST INTO THE EXPOSED STEEL! THERE WAS NO PADDING ON THE BUCKLE! HE STUMBLES BACK AND BRIGHTSTAR ON SHANE GATES! HIKARI ROLLS ON TOP OF GATES AND HOOKS THE LEGS HOLDING THE TIGHTS!

(The referee turns and jumps down for the count….)

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

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

THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

(Hikari rolls off Shane Gates as Miku slides into the ring and hugs her partner.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…… ONE HALF OF THE IDOL-GUN, HIKARI KANNO!!!!!

(“Dream and Drive” by The Oral Cigarettes starts to play throughout the arena as Hikari and Miku celebrate. Shane Gates rolls to his side holding the groin area where he was swiftly kicked. The IDOL-GUN starts to hug one another, Hikari bends over to say something and flips Shane off when they turn around to see the creepy Lizzie doll standing in the ring behind them, the IDOL-GUN both jump out of the ring quickly.)

James Peters: IDOL-GUN was too much for Shane Gates, they used the numbers and Hikari with a low blow, the exposed turnbuckle, they had a lot of factors to help her win, and they will look to do that at King of Elite. As for Shane Gates, he finds himself looking for answers but Lizzie seems to be the center of attention right now.

Rich Russillo: She is, and that is the scary part, but IDOL-GUN, one month in and Hikari Kanno already with a huge win over a great opponent. These two ladies look to make history next week but for now they bounce back after last week.

Persephone: Thank you it’s over, get that doll out of here!

(IDOL-GUN makes their way up the ramp as Gates is up in a seated position, Lizzie standing next to him, as he looks furious while the ladies laugh and walk to the back.)

(Commercial for J. Cole featuring Andre Walker. He hasn’t dropped anything lately so nobody understands why Andre is promoting him, but he is.)

(Out at ringside, the scene fades in to the virtual crowd waiting with anticipation for what’s to come next when suddenly, “Gangsta” by New Years Day sends the EAW fans into a frenzy of cheers! They know that it’s a clear sign that Ms. Extreme is making an appearance, and after what she’s been through, they know it must mean she truly is recovering well from her attack. However, Ms. Extreme comes out from the back dressed casually, but the sight of her still using a crutch while having her knee still braced is surely still concerning.)

Persephone: Can Minerva come out here and just go after Ms. Extreme’s other knee? I’d rather not see her right now after she completely wasted what should’ve been Rex’s match against TLA 🙄; I just know Rex would’ve smacked the shit out him, as he should’ve!

James Peters: Wasted it? She was attacked! But credit to Ms. Extreme for fighting TLA the best she could in her condition regardless, proving just how tough she can be when the moment calls for it. Not too many people would think to go through with the match, but Ms. Extreme simply refused to go down without a fight!

Rich Russillo: We’ll find out just how damaged her knee was though when we see if it holds her back at King of Elite against Minerva!

(Ms. Extreme makes it to ringside and enters the ring by rolling in under the bottom rope. Using the ropes to help her up, Ms. Extreme grabs the crutch from the mat and now has a microphone as well when she goes to stand at the middle of the canvas.)

Ms. Extreme: The week I faced off against TLA, I said that no one was going to take the moment of winning King of Elite away from me….

(She can’t help but shake her head in frustration, obvious anger already forming on her face as she mentally recounts the events that took place.)

Ms. Extreme: But one thing I didn’t really count on, was Minerva deciding it’d be okay for her to take out all her frustrations of not getting her way or getting what she wanted on me. She viciously attacked me in the parking lot, caught me with my guard down, and my knee just hasn’t been the same since. But while I’ve had doctors and whatnot telling me that I need to rest, that I need to take the next couple of weeks lightly and not do anything to exacerbate the injury, all I can think about is how I can get my hands on Minerva and wring her fucking neck for costing me my King of Elite spot! I mean, it’s not my fault she just wasn’t good enough to go all the way, it’s not my fault that there’s shit that hasn’t gone her way – but apparently, my victory set off something in her that I hadn’t expected. I became the target, I became the one she had to make an example out of and she really thought she wouldn’t be dealing with me again, as if she’d done all she needed to…

(That look of anger on Ms. Extreme breaks for a moment, but only because she gives a frustrated laugh the longer she thinks about the attack in the parking lot.)

Ms. Extreme: But Minerva, that wasn’t enough. It wasn’t ever going to be enough because I’m just so much fucking better than that! You played a part in costing me my win over TLA, my chance to make history and a chance at getting closer again to becoming a World Champion for the first time, but you had to have known that I wasn’t going to stay down. You should’ve known that no one comes after Ms. Extreme the way you did, having screwed me over the way you did, and gets away with it like I’m someone who won’t come striking back even harder, even stronger – with a vengeance! And Minerva, that’s exactly how I’ll be coming at you come King of Elite. Fuck a crutch, fuck this knee brace – they aren’t going to hold me back when it comes down to it because when it matters, when I’m kicking the shit out of you and you’re trying not to blackout after every hit, I’ll be the one standing all on my own. But you? You won’t be standing at all because all you did was give me more of a reason to make sure that you can’t get back up, that you can’t walk away from this saying that you got one over on me because I refuse to be someone who doesn’t fight, somehow who just lets bitter fucks who can’t handle a loss walk all over them because they’re lashing out-

(“Blood, Milk, & Sky” by White Zombie interrupts and cuts off Ms. Extreme, which immediately gets her attention, and the crowd showers Minerva in boos as she comes walking out onto the stage! With no urgency about her, Minerva carries a microphone as she looks down into the ring.)

Minerva: Lashing out? You think that I was just simply lashing out, Camille? That’s just so… simple. But when someone like you with your one-track mind gets so wrapped up in your own emotions, I’m not surprised that that’s the conclusion you decide to come to.

Ms. Extreme: And just where exactly am I wrong, Minerva, huh? Because the more I think about it, the more I can’t help but come back around to the fact that you’re just upset with your own direction and your own career! And believe me, after that week you decided to make the mistake of attacking me, I had plenty of time to think. You had made your intentions for the EAW World Championship pretty clear a few months ago after losing the Universal Women’s Championship, but where have you been in that conversation? You thought that you’d be able to get away with whatever you wanted to get to through the King of Elite tournament, just for that to turn out to not be the case.

Minerva: The more I’m reminded of all that, the more I’m reminded that I should’ve gotten all of that. At one point, I had Terry Chambers cowering at my fucking feet with him knowing that his defeat was inevitable back at Wicked Games… and now he’s challenging SOSA Henderson for the EAW World Championship. And after I had finished off Sienna Jade after she’d stuck her nose in my business that night, did anyone really believe that I was just going to sit back quietly as more people continued to get what I knew I deserved? I’m absolutely fed up, fucking sick of people getting what they don’t deserve-

Ms. Extreme: So, that meant that I had to be the one who was on the receiving end of your bullshit because you can’t handle not getting it done?! Minerva, I can understand being frustrated, I can understand wanting better for yourself, but when you attacked me, you crossed a line that there’s no going back on! You played a part in taking from me in a bullshit attack in the parking lot what I had every right to take from you inside of the ring, and it’s not my fault that you just hadn’t been good enough to follow through on it when we faced off. I’m not going to apologize for being fucking better, I won’t feel sorry for taking what I wanted the way I knew I needed to while all you were left with was realizing you were going to continue to not be able to cut it and continue to struggle to keep yourself at the forefront like you have ever since losing the Universal Women’s Title.

(Minerva starts down the ramp, shaking her head as Ms. Extreme’s words hang in the air.)

Minerva: What I was really left with after I lost that match, Camille, was a choice: I could either go quietly into the night or I could let the world know after that that I wasn’t going to be ignored. And I sure got your attention, didn’t I? In fact, I’d say I got everyone’s attention because there’s a reason you ultimately couldn’t follow through and there’s a reason TLA was able to squeak his way into the King of Elite finals, and all roads lead back to me as the cause. But the thing about that is, I’m fine with having to bear that, because now? Now everyone remembers that I’m not just going to accept whatever I’m given, I’m not just going to play along with whatever the expectations are or what everyone thinks I should do because it’s exactly why people like you feel you can come out here saying what you do about me. The thing is, I’ve tried playing by those rules before and I’ve always come back to knowing that they just don’t suit me at all. I remembered what got me to stand out and I took back control before anyone could just brush me off with the expectations that I would just sit back and wait my turn. But no more of that. I’m not letting you or anyone else try to control my narrative, or spew your bullshit about me out into the universe where far too many people are too damn quick to eat it up as fact. The only thing they’re going to have to accept as a fact, is that at King of Elite, you signed yourself up for everything that you’ll have coming your way.

Ms. Extreme: So you think I’m just spewing bullshit? Had you not maybe gotten a little too comfortable? Did you not go around thinking that you were just going to get your way? Like I said the other week, you’d been taking your spot for granted after you lost the Universal Women’s Championship and you seemed to have thought that things were going to come easily because of that, but you weren’t expecting to run into any of the tough roadblocks that you did. I can say for a fact that you weren’t expecting to run into me being the one who would put you out the running for making history in the King of Elite tournament – and I’ve got the damn evidence to show for it!

(Ms. Extreme motions to her injured knee, which puts a smirk on Minerva’s face as she comes up the steps and into the ring, obviously taking her time as she knew that Ms. Extreme wasn’t going anywhere in a hurry.)

Ms. Extreme: But between you and me, that wasn’t going to be how this ended – I wasn’t going to allow it! So now, unfortunately for you, I’m not stuck having to appear on the tron from home via satellite and I’ll be meeting you in the ring for a fucking fight, because no matter what you think, that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Minerva: Camille, you’re hot-headed, brash, and arrogant to the point where it can all be some of your biggest faults. You run your mouth even when you’ve got no place to, no room to criticize, and yet, you’ll be one of the first to try to tell me how to go about my business or the repercussions I could face as if I’m not one of the biggest dangers that you’ll ever come across. You lucked out with having Shane Gates trying to pass himself off as legitimate competition, you got off easy with Kasey when I’m on a whole other level that wouldn’t have generously allowed the impression of us being anything close to being evenly matched – and you think you can tell me that you understand? You think you can say that you’ve had it hard? You wouldn’t know what it’s like, not when you can’t even get your hands on the World Championships that get dangled right in front of your own face that you slip and fall on every time. Don’t talk to me about not being able to make the cut when you haven’t been able to cross the necessary lines to get what you’re constantly chasing, always in pursuit of and never being able to claim as your own, Camille. I’ve gone to depths, looked inside and gone to places within myself that you wouldn’t even dare to go for yourself or your success – that’ll be the difference come King of Elite and you’ll know that when you’re wondering why you bothered to limp your way to the ring.

Ms. Extreme: You’re right. I haven’t been able to become a World Champion. I haven’t crossed that line in my career, but I know I could’ve done it with a King of Elite win if you hadn’t been so set on taking it from me the way that you did. But you don’t see me taking that out on TLA, do you? TLA only did what anyone in his position would’ve and I can’t exactly blame him for that – but you sure as fuck aren’t off the hook. No, because I know exactly who I need to focus on and I’m looking right at the bitch who’s going to know what it means to have to face the consequences of fucking with me, with my opportunities, with my career! You can bring all the weird shit you want, you can try all the tricks you’re desperately going to need, and hell, feel free to bring Myles, too, because if our last match was any indication, even he knows you’re sure as fuck going to need the help!

James Peters: MINERVA JUST DROVE MS. EXTREME RIGHT TO THE MAT BY HITTING HER OVER THE HEAD WITH THAT MICROPHONE :damn:!!!!

Rich Russillo: Apparently she didn’t like what Ms. Extreme had to say, and she makes that clear, AS SHE KICKS MS. EXTREME IN THE RIBS!!! MS. EXTREME SHOUTS UPON BEING TURNED OVER AND NOW MINERVA STOMPS DOWN ON THE INJURED KNEE!!! MINERVA WITH ANOTHER STOMP AND ANOTHER, AND MS. EXTREME ISN’T ABLE TO DEFEND HERSELF FROM THIS ASSAULT!!!

Persephone: One less bitch for us to have to deal with and clear of being anywhere near Rex’s spotlight when they rule her as not being cleared to compete :blessed:!!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is grabbing at her knee while she’s still down on the mat and Minerva merely stalks around her knowing that she’s not going anywhere, and I’m worried for Ms. Extreme! Will she even make it to King of Elite now?! Ms. Extreme reaches for the crutch- fuck, Minerva kicks it away and out the ring! And now she’s stepping on Ms. Extreme’s hand! Ms. Extreme’s screams are honestly growing more uncomfortable and honestly a little concerning; she could be seriously hurt again!

Rich Russillo: But Ms. Extreme is doing all she can do get Minerva off her! She’s using her other hand to punch at her gut after getting to her other knee, and she pushes Minerva away, giving herself time to try to stand- MINERVA JUST KICKED THE BRACED KNEE!!! CAMILLE GOES DOWN AGAIN AND NOW A DDT FROM MINERVA!!! Ms. Extreme grabs her head but Minerva is giving her no time to recover as she grabs Ms. Extreme and just sends her through the ropes and to the outside, letting her crash down at ringside! Minerva takes her time heading over and she steps out, eventually hopping down off the apron-

James Peters: MS. EXTREME SWINGS THE CRUTCH AND IT STRIKES MINERVA IN THE FACE!!! MINERVA FALLS OVER INTO THE APRON AS SHE COVERS HER FACE BUT JUST WHEN SHE TRIES TO START AFTER CAMILLE AGAIN, MS. EXTREME DRIVES THE CRUTCH RIGHT INTO HER STOMACH AND CRACKS IT OVER HER BACK AS SHE’S BENT OVER!!! MS. EXTREME RUTHLESSLY SWINGS IT DOWN AGAIN AND NOW MINERVA GOES TO THE FLOOR, GRABBING AT HER BACK IN PAIN!!! AND NOW MS. EXTREME TAKES THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTOM OF THE CRUTCH AND SENDS IT RIGHT TO MINERVA’S FACE!!!

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme has to take a moment as she leans into the apron to collect herself but look at this! Minerva is already moving! She’s pushing herself up onto her hands and knees, and Ms. Extreme hobbles over to grab her only to be pushed away! Minerva is up to her feet now and brushes her hair out her face- MINERVA’S BEEN BUSTED OPEN!!! MINERVA’S NOSE MAY BE BROKEN AFTER THAT SHOT TO THE FACE FROM THE CRUTCH, AS BLOOD IS COMING DOWN HER FACE!! She wipes it away and goes after Ms. Extreme, throwing forearms and Ms. Extreme doesn’t hesitate to start fighting back!!

James Peters: Minerva and Ms. Extreme trade blows over on the other side of the ring, but it’s clear even from here that they’re not going to be stopped until one of them gives up! But they’ll have to beat the other down if that’s ever going to happen; neither of them is giving in! The former Universal Women’s Champion throws her knee up into Ms. Extreme’s stomach and grabs her to send her into the post- No! Ms. Extreme slips away- MINERVA JUST TURNED AROUND INTO THE SHOT TO THE FACE WITH THAT METAL PART OF THE CRUTCH!!! MS. EXTREME DROPPING DOWN NOW AND SHE’S UNLOADING WITH A FLURRY OF PUNCHES!!! MS. EXTREME IS MAKING SURE SHE GETS HER HITS IN ON MINERVA FOR THE ATTACK A FEW WEEKS AGO!!!

Persephone: I think I changed my mind, if they’re gonna kill each other like this then consider me interested if it means verging on homicide!! Minerva’s face is totally fucked right now; there’s blood everywhere!! Ms. Extreme is yelling at her for attacking her in the parking lot and she’s not letting up at all for even the slightest bit!

Rich Russillo: AND FINALLY HERE COMES A BUNCH OF OFFICIALS TO PULL MS. EXTREME OFF OF MINERVA!!! EVEN NOW THEY’RE HAVING A TOUGH TIME WITH CAMILLE AS SHE’S DETERMINED TO LEAVE A LASTING IMPRESSION JUST PRIOR TO KING OF ELITE!!! BUT FINALLY THEY GET HER PULLED AWAY!!! And if this is how they are now, just imagine how King of Elite is going to be! Ms. Extreme has her fist completely covered with Minerva’s blood and as the officials help Minerva up, she’s got her face covered with red! Minerva is staring down Ms. Extreme, who’s trying to get at Minerva despite the referees taking her back and-

James Peters: MINERVA JUST BROKE FREE FROM HER SET OF OFFICIALS!! THEY CAN’T CATCH HER AS SHE UNEXPECTEDLY CLOSES IN ON MS. EXTREME!!!! SHE SHOVES TWO OFFICIALS INTO EACH OTHER SO THAT THEY FALL OVER BUT MS. EXTREME GETS TANGLED UP WITH THEM NEAR THE STEPS!! SHE TRIES TO USE THEM TO BRING HERSELF UP AS MINERVA COMES TO STAND OVER HER- MS. EXTREME PULLS HER DOWN BY HER BELT AND SENDS HER FACE-FIRST INTO THE EDGE OF THE STEPS!!!!

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME TRIES TO CRAWL OVER AND GRAB HER BY THE REFEREES STOP HER FROM BRUTALIZING THE BLOODIED MINERVA ANY FURTHER!!! THEY HAVE TO BREAK A HOLD ON MINERVA’S HAIR BEFORE MS. EXTREME CAN DO ANYTHING AND THEY START TAKING HER UP THE RAMP; THEY NEED TO KEEP THEM SEPARATED!!!

(Between yelling at an unconscious Minerva and screaming at the referees to release her, Ms. Extreme is just barely containable as she’s taken away; the only thing helping the officials in their cause being her injured knee. Ms. Extreme warns Minerva that there’s more where that came from, but even when the time comes where she’s back to being up and moving, Minerva probably won’t heed that warning at all. In fact, she’ll only be looking to return something worse.)

James Peters: This escalated so quick, I wasn’t ready for any of this! And I don’t think Minerva was ready to fight Ms. Extreme like this just now, either! Literally, what more surprises could we be faced with come King of Elite?! This match could prove to be insane between these two, but I certainly wouldn’t come to expect anything less from two women like Ms. Extreme and Minerva!

(With calls for medics to come for Minerva, they rush past Ms. Extreme on their way down the ramp, but their presence only puts a proud expression on Camille’s face as she’s seemingly encouraged to keep talking shit on her way out. But even she has to know that this is far from over and only just getting started. With the camera coming over the crowd kneeling around Minerva, there’s a close-up of the blood that drenches and runs down her face. With that gruesome shot being seared into the minds of the EAW fans watching on, the scene fades out.)

(Commercial for AppleBees featuring both Chained Fury and the Realm. The Realm talks about how horrible the place is before being kicked out by Ronan and Ryan, who spend the rest of it telling everyone that AppleBees deserves 5 stars.)

(Voltage fades back in from break and cuts to the ringside area. “Triumph” by Tenth Dimension begins to play, and the virtual crowd inside of World 1 Theatre begins to boo.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… DRAKE THE REDEEMER!

//media.tenor.com/images/22d33efc89657196698c7b972f15fc8c/tenor.gif

Persephone: :noah: Why is this becoming a weekly thing?? I don’t understand why we keep giving this guy a microphone.

James Peters: It does seem like every single week ‘The Last Messiah’ comes out here and blesses us with his presence. For as controversial as his views are, Drake King knows how to work a crowd. I don’t think there has ever been another Elitist who’s been able to keep people in the palm of his hand like Drake can besides our esteemed Chairman, Mr. DEDEDE.

Rich Russillo: That is a bold comparison, James, but I find it hard to disagree with you. Drake King has all but cemented himself as a future legend, and I can’t wait to see what he has to say tonight.

Persephone: I mean, I can think of a million other things I would rather sit through than yet another stupid Drake King sermon. A root canal is more appealing to be honest.

Rich Russillo: :wow:

(Drake has made his way into the ring and has taken a microphone.)

Drake King: You know, I originally planned to come out here and make one last effort to save Jake Smith and Consuela Rose Ava. I’m merciful like that, even though these two have put me through absolute Hell the past few weeks. I thought that perhaps if I introduced them to the Book of Dristianity, I could save them, and spare them the absolute beating they have coming to them at King of Elite. But on the way to the building tonight, I had quite the revelation. I can preach all I want to the likes of Jake and Consuela, but neither one of them are ever going to get it. No matter how badly I want to see the good in them, especially Jake when you consider the history the two of us have, it’s basically a lost cause. They are beyond help, and when you consider that both their actions leave a lot to be desired, they may not even be worth saving. It makes me sad to say that, because I truly want to see everyone thrive. I do. This company is only as good as its weakest link. My whole goal with getting everyone on the same page is so we don’t have any weak links. I would love to see us all rise to the top, be united as one entity that only wants to compete for the sheer love of sport :drakelike:. That is my dream, but last week, it became clear that I may need to change my ways a bit in order to lead us all towards my vision.

(Drake’s smile fades a bit as he turns serious.)

Drake King: Myles opened my eyes to some things last week that I have kind of taken to heart, and quite frankly, I just decided myself that not everyone deserves my mercy. I am going to have to get my hands dirty even if I don’t want to, and both Jake and Consuela are going to be used to set examples of how things will be going forward if you try and stop me. These two represent everything wrong with this place, anyway, and deserve no leniency. I will not show them any kindness. I will not take it easy on either of them. At King of Elite, Jake and Consuela must suffer. They must feel my wraith. They must endure the absolute worst beating of their entire careers. There is no other option. I wanted there to be, but oh well. We can’t always get what we want, and as a res-

(“We Appreciate Power” by Grimes begins to play across the PA System.)

James Peters: IT’S CONSUELA!!!!

Rich Russillo: AND SHE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE IN THE MOOD TO TALK! SHE SLIDES INTO THE RING BUT DRAKE QUICKLY PUTS THE BOOTS TO HER! HE KNEW CONSUELA WAS COMING OUT TONIGHT, LOOKING FOR A FIGHT, AND HE WAS PREPARED! DRAKE STOMPS AWAY ON CONSUELA, BUT SHE FIGHTS HER WAY TO HER FEET AND BEGINS TO PEPPER DRAKE WITH FOREARMS! DRAKE FIRES BACK WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS, BUT CONSUELA BLOCKS HIS LAST SHOT, TORQUES THE WRIST, AND SENDS DRAKE INTO THE ROPES!

Persephone: DRAKE DUCKS A CLOTHESLINE, BUT CONSUELA WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK THAT CATCHES DRAKE ON THE REBOUND! DRAKE FALLS BACK AGAINST THE ROPES, AND CONSUELA RUSHES HIM! DRAKE LIFTS HER UP AND DROPS HER OUT OF THE RING, AND CONSUELA JUST HIT THE GROUND HARD! DRAKE IS ON THE APRON NOW AND HE IS CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE! 

James Peters: PHOENIX SPLASH!!!!

Rich Russillo: DOES NOT CONNECT! CONSUELA ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AS DRAKE WENT HIGH RISK AND MISSED! CONSUELA IS UP AND SHE REACHES UNDER THE RING! SHE HAS A CHAIR! CONSUELA HAS A CHAIR! SHE LOOKS TO SLAM IT DOWN ACROSS DRAKE’S BACK BUT HE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! CONSUELA CONNECTS WITH THE FLOOR BUT SHE IS NOT DETERRED! SHE RAISES THE CHAIR TO TRY AGAIN BUT HOLD ON! FROM BEHIND! THERE IS JAKE SMITH! HE RIPS THE CHAIR FROM CONSUELA AND SLAMS IT INTO HER FACE!

Persephone: HAHAHA! CONSUELA CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND AND JAKE RUSHES TOWARDS DRAKE! JAKE LOOKS FOR A CURB STOMP, BUT DRAKE SPRINGS UP AND CATCHES HIM WITH A DROP KICK! THE CHAIR FALLS FROM JAKE’S HANDS AND DRAKE GRABS JAKE, AND LOOKS TO THROW HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!

James Peters: JAKE CATCHES DRAKE WITH AN ELBOW, IS ABLE TO FREE HIMSELF, AND THIS TIME IT’S DRAKE WHO IS SENT INTO THE RING POST!!!!

Rich Russillo: NOPE! DRAKE GOT HIS FOOT UP! ELBOW TO JAKE! DRAKE TURNS AROUND, LOOKING FOR A SHORT CLOTHESLINE BUT JAKE DUCKS! JAKE LOOKS FOR A MODIFIED NECKBREAKER, BUT DRAKE ISN’T HAVING IT! DRAKE SPINS AROUND, CONNECTING WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE, BUT JAKE! JAKE DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND HE HITS DRAKE WITH A LOW BLOW! 

Persephone: Well, that sucks for Sierra.

James Peters: JAKE DRIVES HIS KNEE IN DRAKE’S FACE AND THERE IS JUDGMENT DAY! JAKE JUST USED DRAKE’S OWN CURB STOMP AGAINST HIM! :damn:

Persephone: Jake looks awfully proud of himself right now.

Rich Russillo: LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE!!! THE KNEE OF DEATH TO THE BACK OF JAKE SMITH’S HEAD! DRAKE KING AND JAKE SMITH ARE DOWN AND OUT, AND CONSUELA ROSE AVA STANDS TALL OVER THE TWO OF THEM!!!

James Peters: The woman who damn near broke the record for the longest Interwire Championship reign in history is the only person left standing at the moment. If there is one thing we learned during Consuela’s time as Interwire Champion, it’s that this woman is a serious threat to everyone in this company. She is the real deal, and legitimate main eventer, and quite frankly, she could very well walk out of King of Elite with a huge victory next weekend.

Rich Russillo: There’s no doubt that Consuela has truly come into her own as a competitor and she is not someone anyone should take lightly. 

(“We Appreciate Power” by Grimes is blasting across the PA system once again, and Consuela looks down at the carnage with a smirk on her face. She may have a reputation of being mild-mannered, but there’s no doubt that when push comes to shove, she is a woman who means business. With a final shot of Consuela, Voltage fades to a commercial break.)

(Another promotional ad plays for King of Elite, this time promoting the triple threat match between Consuela Rose Ava, Drake King and Jake Smith.)

(Voltage cuts to what appears to be a highlight reel of Myles’ season 14. It starts off with Myles challenging Rex McAllister for the EAW Championship. Myles would cost Rex the Unified Tag Team Championships at Operation: Doomsday, but at Bloodsport he’d lose to Rex in a Sadistic Madness match following two Rex Effects onto thumbtacks, after his mouth was already stuffed with them. This would be Myles’ one and only free-per-view loss of the season up until now, as things would turn around soon after. After this, the recap shows Voltage’s Brand Warfare victory at Territorial Invasion, before Myles would challenge Sienna Jade for the National Elite Championship, and win the Championship at Wicked Games. This would be Myles’ first singles Championship reign, and he’d successfully defend the title against Jesse Barlow, despite the odds being stacked against him with El Landerson being the referee. This finally takes us to the past few weeks, where Myles and Minerva have been helping each other throughout their matches, costing an old foe his spot in the King of Elite tournament. Rex would accept Myles’ challenge to a match after revealing how he feels about Myles’ alliance with Minerva, but on one condition. It’d be at King of Elite, for the National Elite Championship.)

(Likewise, Rex McAllister’s season 14 is recapped. It starts off with him as EAW Champion and one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, and of course Myles answers his open challenge. Following Rex’s Unified Tag Team Championship loss Rex would retain his EAW Championship against Myles, but he’d lose his Championship to SOSA Henderson at Territorial Invasion. This would be the last we see of Rex, up until a few weeks before Road to Redemption, where Rex would make his return as the final participant in the Extreme Elimination Chamber for the EAW Championship. Rex would come up short, but following his great performance he’d be presented with another opportunity in the King of Elite tournament. He’d face Minerva in the first round, but unfortunately Myles struck. Myles would help Minerva get the victory, and Rex would become the first of many victims to Myles and Minerva’s tactics. Rex would try and convince Myles that this wasn’t a good idea, but after Myles challenged Rex to a match, Rex decided to take up his offer in the best way possible. A National Elite Championship match at King of Elite.)

(Following the recap, Sofia Clarke is seen backstage in the interviewing area. She’s seated in a chair, and begins to speak after the virtual crowd booed at the sight of Myles, and cheered seeing Rex.)

Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, at King of Elite Myles will be defending his National Elite Championship against Rex McAllister. With me tonight is both men in said Championship match, Myles and Rex McAllister.

(The camera fades to a split screen between both Myles, and Rex McAllister. The crowd seems to be split, cheering for Rex but booing for Myles. Myles doesn’t seem to care about the crowd’s reaction, and after these past few weeks Rex doesn’t have the biggest smile on his face either.)

Sofia Clarke: Myles, Rex, thank you for joining me here tonight. Now Myles, moments ago a video played recapping your season on Voltage, and of course at the very start of the season you answered Rex McAllister’s EAW Championship open challenge. You came up short and Rex was able to retain his Championship, but as it turns out that wouldn’t be the last time you guys face for Championship gold. It’s been confirmed that you’re facing Rex for your National Elite Championship at King of Elite, and since that match was confirmed everyone’s been asking, “Can Myles finally overcome Rex McAllister?”

Rex McAllister: Sorry Sofia, but if you’d allow me I’d like to interrupt. Myles has had opportunities to face me, and as we all know he’s come up short. Bloodsport, Voltage’s first free-per-view of the year. It was even part of that recap video. Despite his unwavering confidence and ruthless aggression, he couldn’t defeat me. I’ve given credit where it’s due. Myles has grown since then. He’s not the same exact competitor he was before, but after these past few weeks I’m not sure if that’s for better or for worse. Everyone knows Minerva’s been taking him down the wrong path, everyone but Myles himself. He won the National Elite Championship out of his own ability, not because Minerva handed the match to him. I don’t like what I’ve been seeing from Myles lately, and you’ve gotta ask if stuff like that is what we should be seeing from a Champion. Taking shortcuts and interfering in matches just to help others get ahead easier. That’s not how you won the National Elite Championship Myles, and if this is how you want to end your title reign then so be it. Everyone knows what type of person I am by now, including you. You should have let Minerva fight her own battles and continued fighting yours, but instead you’ve let her brainwash you. The entire world knows I have what it takes to beat Myles. We have yet to see if the opposite is true.

(Myles doesn’t look very impressed, and stays silent for a moment. He looks down at his National Elite Championship, and after a few seconds he finally answers Sofia.)

Myles: Hey Sofia, let me answer your question with a question. Why do you think I’m in the position I’m in right now? I don’t see the same value in Championships that everyone else does, yet I’ve held this title since Wicked Games way back in October. Why is that?

Sofia Clarke: Well… Um…

Myles: It’s because nobody else is ready to hold this title. Sienna Jade is a former World Champion. She’s been praised as a modern day great, and I disposed of her. Jesse Barlow had El Landerson as the referee of our match for this title, and Landerson attacked me seconds into the match. He counted slowly whenever I went for pinfalls, and counted as fast as possible when I was the one being pinned. Landerson did whatever he could to make sure I didn’t walk out of Road to Redemption with the National Elite Championship, and guess what? I fucking did it anyway. I’m aware of my past with Rex McAllister, and that past is the reason why I’m where I am today. Each and every loss I’ve taken helped shape the man you see today, and my loss to Rex was one of the biggest factors in my growth. My loss to Rex at Bloodsport is what lit a fire underneath me and helped me reach an even higher level, so what do you think Sofia? Look at what someone who doesn’t care about accomplishments accomplished. Look at how long I’ve held something I couldn’t care less about. Look at how this season has only gotten better and better for me, and ask yourself. Do YOU think I can beat Rex?

Sofia Clarke: Well.. I-

Myles: Look. The two of us go way back. I’ve faced Rex even before Bloodsport. Way back in 2019 I had matches against Rex McAllister. Time and time again I faced the man, but this time is going to be unlike any other. This isn’t going to be like any of our other matches. Rex isn’t going to come out on top, nor will he be allowed to fulfill his weird, materialistic needs. He doesn’t need this Championship. He’s already held it before, along with the EAW Championship, Unified Tag Team Championships, and so much more. For fucks sake the man was inducted into the hall of fame last year, but none of that was enough for him. His multiple World Championship wins weren’t enough for him. Getting into the EAW hall of fame wasn’t enough of them. The constant undeserved chances he gets aren’t enough for him, and guess what’ll happen if he takes this title from me? He’s going to have an underwhelming Championship reign, lose the title, and that still won’t be enough. This has been the run of my career Sofia, and it’s not because I’m a Champion. With or without the National Elite Championship, I’m at the top of my career right now. I’m better than I’ve ever been before, and this season I’ve done nothing but prove everything I said since coming back. I became the man I wanted to become, and I’ve shown this entire roster why I’m EAW’s Warlord. Rex keeps questioning my alliance with Minerva just like everyone else does, but Minerva helped my move forward. She helped me move in the right direction. She’s been part of my journey to where I am now, and Rex is going to learn first hand just how much I’ve grown since Bloodsport. So to answer their question Sofia, yes. Yes I do have what it takes, but that should be obvious by now.

Sofia Clarke: Thank you. And Rex? How much do you favor your chances of defeating Myles and capturing the National Elite Championship?

Rex McAllister: I know what I’ll be getting myself into at King of Elite. That’s all I have to say about this match. Myles you said it best, we have history together. We’ve actually been in the ring with each other multiple times as enemies, but no matter how different you may be this time around, I know I’ll always be capable of beating you. It took me two years to make it back to the EAW Championship. Two whole years, and I’m nowhere near satisfied with how my Championship reign ended. I didn’t want to lose the EAW Championship as soon as I did, after working my way up for years just to have that Pain for Pride moment. It was taken away from me far sooner than I thought it’d be, and after failing at Road to Redemption the King of Elite tournament was my best chance of making it back into the picture. That was my biggest opportunity to reclaim that Championship, but you stole that opportunity from me Myles. It’s because of you that I didn’t at least advance further in the King of Elite tournament, and the worst part is the fact that I’m not the only person that suffered thanks to you and Minerva’s antics. This all has to stop. Someone needs to put you guys in your place and finally shut this whole thing down, and Myles you left me with no other choice. I’ll end your National Elite Championship reign, and add yet another accolade to my resume knowing just how much that bothers you.

Myles: So, you’re that confident, Rex? You really think you’ll be the one to end this title reign, huh? You know what Sofia, I’d actually like to add a bit to what you asked Rex. Can Rex McAllister repeat history, and win the National Elite Championship? Can Rex McAllister overcome the Warlord, and end one of the most dominant Championship reigns in recent memory? I’ll answer that question at King of Elite, when I pin Rex McAllister in the center of the ring and destroy any chances of him ever holding this National Elite Championship again. Rex you and I know each other very well, and I’m sure you’re taking this match very seriously. After all, I’m the one that has what you want. I’m the Champion this time, and you’re chasing after me all for a little piece of gold. You’re going to do everything in your power to try and become Champion once again, but you will fail. You’re going to be embarrassed by me, and you’ll have no other choice but to walk out of King of Elite exactly where you’re supposed to be. Empty handed, with nowhere else to go. Now, are we done here?

Sofia Clarke: Well-

(Before Sofia could even finish her sentence, Myles gets out of his chair and leaves the area, leaving only Rex McAllister’s side of the screen showing.)

Rex McAllister: He’s in over his head, and I really hope he comes to understand that. Myles had this same sort of confidence last time we faced, and that didn’t end well for him. Myles says that loss took him to a higher level, but if he makes the same mistakes he made back at Bloodsport, none of it is going to matter. He doesn’t realize who he’s dealing with at all, and once again that’s going to be his undoing. I’m not like any of the people he faced for that Championship, and I’m not going to let him get away with everything he and Minerva did these past few weeks. Myles doesn’t care about all these Championships, or about any awards, or even the fans’ respect, but I know he wants to win this match. If there’s anything he’s looking for right now it’s the chance to finally beat me. He wants to get a victory over me probably to convince himself that he’s surpassed what happened at Bloodsport, but unless he somehow surprises me in this next week, then that’s not going to happen. Instead, at King of Elite we’ll be seeing a new National Elite Champion, and once again I’ll be back where I’m actually supposed to be. Holding Championship gold, only this time things won’t end like they did at Territorial Invasion.

(Rex finally gets up and takes his leave as well, and as he does so the camera fades back to Sofia Clarke in the interviewing area. She doesn’t seem to have anything left to say, and after a rough ending to the split-screen interview, Voltage fades to a commercial break.)

(Commercial for WandaVision featuring Candice Blair and Azrael.)

(Voltage fades to the backstage area, and in front of a backdrop with the King of Elite poster is the Unified Tag Team Champions, Harper Lee and Sierra Bradford. They have their Championships on their shoulders, and after the virtual crowd’s cheers quiet down they begin to speak.)

Harper Lee: One week from now, we’re going to be competing in our biggest Unified Tag Team Championship match yet. We’ll be facing IDOL-GUN, Chained Fury, and the Maidens of Malpractice all for the titles on our shoulders right now, and it’s all happening at King of Elite. We’ve been through Flaming Ladder matches, we faced two of the teams in this match already, but now more than ever the odds are stacked against us. More than when we first dethroned the Grand Athletes to win these titles. More than when we defended against Parental Advisory and Chained Fury. Our chances of retaining these titles are lower than ever, but when have we ever cared about our chances? We’ve been holding these titles for like five months now, and we never cared about being underdogs. We never cared whether the odds were in our favor or not, we still got the job done. We’ve earned our spot as Unified Tag Team Champions a very long time ago, and I don’t plan on losing these titles anytime soon. Do you?

Sierra Bradford: Give us a reason to lose it Harper. I don’t feel the need to. There’s still so much to do out there in the vast landscape of EAW that despite holding these titles for as long as we have, we still haven’t done enough. We still can’t lose these titles just yet. The competition level has finally grown this far into our tag title reign, and King of Elite is definitely our biggest defense so far. There’s no disputing that. Truth be told the challenge that presents itself is something that does put our reign into question. All of the competitors in this match, or in this case a good majority of them, could give us a run for our money if we aren’t prepared for this. We’re going to have to take this to levels that we’ve never taken it before, but what’s new when you’re the best Tag Team around?

Harper Lee: Absolutely nothing. Nothing’s new when you’re in our position. We’ve been getting disrespected our entire tag title reign. We never got the fair chance that all these other Champs get. We didn’t even get the chance all the other Unified Tag Champs got. Nobody was willing to admit we were good enough to hold these titles, then we won them. Nobody believed we were good enough to successfully defend the titles, then we actually did it. They all thought we just got lucky and that we couldn’t defend it a second time, and guess what we did? We defended it a second time. We keep proving more and more of our haters wrong, but they don’t shut up. They don’t stop hating. We’ve never been given a fair chance and we probably never will be, but at the end of the day they’re the ones that consistently look stupid. They’re the ones that are proven wrong time and time again, and at King of Elite we’re that cycle is just gonna continue. IDOL-GUN, Maidens of Malpractice or Chained Fury as Champions? Nah. We’re gonna keep doing what we do best. 

Sierra Bradford: For some reason people keep doing that, why? Doubting us didn’t do anyone good the last 2 times we defended our titles, I can’t find a reason why it would change this time around. It’s always the same stupid things repeated over and over again passed around by every person that faces us and in my opinion, it’s gotten a bit boring. I hope that King of Elite changes that. I hope that every single person in this matchup puts it all out there for show and stakes their claim as to why they should be the new Unified Tag Team Champions… Just for us to continue to prove that we are undeniably just as good as we say we are. These past few months people have said that we’ve gotten an ego, that these defenses have gotten to our head and it isn’t as grand as we say they are. But let me emphasize this real quick, absolutely nobody has done it like us! Maybe if we weren’t competent Champions then maybe we’d be fighting for the titles in this match, but nah, we’re defending them. There are so many teams out there that deem themselves ready for gold, but only one of them has proved why in this match, and you can figure that out for yourself.

Harper Lee: Wow… We really are good, huh? You know we were supposed to be facing the Blicky Boyz… 🤢.. For these titles. We were supposed to be facing EAW’s Batman and Robin in Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite, but Robin went and got himself injured. I don’t mind this change. I don’t mind gaining even more competitors. Having the odds stacked way against us doesn’t scare me, it doesn’t scare Sierra, and it shouldn’t scare any Champion that thinks they’re even half as good as us. Since day one we’ve been asking for competition regardless of what people said about us. We didn’t get complacent and coast along. We didn’t back away from competition regardless of who or what we were up against. We didn’t allow everyone’s insults to become true, and that’s why we’re where we are right now. We’re still going to be here after King of Elite. IDOL-GUN, Chained Fury, Maidens, you’ve still got a long way to go before you’re ready to take these titles from us, and we’ve got a long way to go until we’re ready to let go of them. None of us are leaving King of Elite any differently than we walked in. You all are gonna remain empty handed, and we’ll remain Champions.

Sierra Bradford: Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite, Malcolm Jones, or the entire Tag Division. The results won’t really differ, and the results say that we will still be your Unified Tag Team Champions at the end of the day. Ever since we won these titles to begin with we made a promise to live up to the standards that these titles placed on us and we’ve done just that and we’re gunning for doing more. It’s going to take a lot more than just your wildest dreams to take these titles away from us when even people in this match already failed to do so. At King of Elite come hell or high water we will still be here, we will fight just as we always do, and we will end the night still your Tag Champs.

(As the virtual crowd begins to cheer and both members of the Realm finish speaking, Harper and Sierra raise their Unified Tag Team Championships. They keep their Championships up, and that’s the final image shown as Voltage fades out to a commercial break.)

(Commercial promoting the anime My Hero Academia and their upcoming season five featuring Myles, who shares his excitement over his favorite character: Minoru Mineta.)

(As Voltage returns from commercial, we see Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall…

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: AND IT IS A TAG TEAM MATCH, WITH DEATHMATCH RULES APPLIED!

(‘In Over My Head’ by grandson hits the speakers as the crowd erupts into cheers. The fan favorite, EAW-Unified Tag Team Champions Sierra Bradford and Harper Lee, The Realm, walk onto the stage wearing their brand new merch, featuring The Realm’s logo in the style of the Gamecube logo, in 8-bit.)

James Peters: The tag team champions have arrived, and they very clearly look battle ready! Tonight is about many things, but to The Realm, perhaps momentum is in mind. They have three other teams to face at King of Elite, six other competitors, with their titles on the line. This is their toughest challenge yet, and tonight this could be a perfect way to prepare themselves for that.

Rich Russillo: It pains me to say this, but tonight is a tough challenge too. It is a deathmatch FEATURING AN INSANE PERSON! Physically and mentally it’s a tough challenge to overcome. I mean imagine what goes through Kasey’s head in a normal match, times it by eleven, no, eleven HUNDRED and apply it here. Exactly.

James Peters: I don’t agree with the wording, but the meaning is true. What Kasey has planned for this match is going to be VERY unpredictable.

Persephone: As long as it features blood. :drakelike:

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, at a combined weight of 259 pounds, they are the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions… Sierra Bradford… Harper Lee… THEEEEEEE REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALMMMMMMM!!!

(Harper Lee and Sierra Bradford walk up the ring steps one after another, before entering the ring and unstrapping their titles.)

(‘Forgotten’ by Avril Levigne hits the speakers, as Constance Blevins walks through the speakers. She doesn’t look too pleased about teaming with Kasey, but it doesn’t matter, since next week she feels she’s going to take her title regardless.)

James Peters: And here comes the number one contender to the EAW Specialists Championship, Constance Blevins! A lot of feuds in EAW consist of people hating each other, but this hatred is on another level, and they’re planning to go to absolute war at King of Elite-

Rich Russillo: And who thought THAT was a good idea? Thank God they’ll be completely somewhere else rather than being right here in front of us, I hope. Kasey Kaos is a maniac, and I can say that forever and ever and nothing will change. For the safety of everyone else, why was this match sanctioned?

Persephone: I’m glad it is!

James Peters: Of course you are.

Bella Braxton: Introducing their opponents… first, hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, weighing in at 120 pounds, CONSTAAAAAAANCE BLEEEEEEEEVIIIIIIINS!

(Constance Blevins would hop onto the apron and enter the ring, before climbing up the turnbuckles and posing. However she would be cut off short as the lights cut out, barring a few, that turn purple. ‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson replaces Constance’s theme, as Kasey Kaos slowly walks out through the curtains with the EAW Specialists Championship in her mouth. She stares at Constance, who stares back, both clearly hating each other.)

James Peters: And here comes the champion, the champion that has been on a tear recently, picking up win after win after win, solidifying why she exactly is the champ-

Rich Russillo: No I refuse to hear anymore about this “being on a tear” shit about Kasey. If she could go one match without sending her opponents to the doctor’s room, that’d be more impressive.

Persephone: You just don’t understand real wrestling. She’s not insane, she just knows her stuff. Barbed wire > Headlocks any day.

Rich Russillo: I’m so conflicted right now. :will:

James Peters: Anyway, as I was saying, she’s been solidifying why she’s the champion! Defending her title against Holly Arrow, even inside of the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road To Redemption, and her next challenger is that woman right there, the woman she’s teaming with tonight!

Bella Braxton: And introducing her tag team partner… she hails from The Lake of Fire, and she weighs in at 140 pounds… THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… KASEEEEEEEEEEY KAOS!!!!!

(Kasey Kaos climbs up the steps, and enters the ring, before looking her partner and next challenger dead in the eyes. After this match, she doesn’t care what happens to her. Kasey Kaos walks past her and stares down the hardcam, before removing her title from her mouth and raising it into the air, before licking the front plate, in rather disgusting fashion, COVID-19 exists :mjpls:.)

Rich Russillo: You’re trying to say she’s not insane yet ignore the fact she enjoys the taste of steel that has been kissed and touched by countless people in the past?? :noah:

James Peters: You really won’t let that go, huh?

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: I’m sure Persephone is going to love this one, as Deathmatch Rules APPLY! No count outs, no disqualifications, no rules, as long as they work within the confines of the law, and the contract signed when you first joined this company. Hitting people with chairs? Kendo sticks? All legal, however I feel that whatever happens in this match will be MUCH much worse than chair shots and kendo sticks. As most nights tend to be. And quite honestly, I wouldn’t expect anything else, especially from Constance and Kasey. I’d expect them to do this to each other, however this match I can only assume with me more-so of a contest of who can be more violent ahead of their match at King of Elite!

Rich Russillo: I don’t know what The Realm are going to do here. They like to act like they’re a buncha nice girls but I know those two aren’t what they seem. Those two have been real violent in the past, most notably at Territorial Invasion when they blinded that Mark Macias guy, and now look where he is. Gone! Now I don’t want to worry anyone, but that could very well happen right now!

James Peters: The real question is are Constance and Kasey even going to be able to get along? We can sit here and discuss what The Realm are capable off and how they don’t seem like they should be capable of it, but let’s not forget one crucial detail. Kasey and Constance despise each other’s being, and if they wanted to they could just fight each other right now, I’m very sure the temptation is there and I’m very sure they would really love to have their opponent weak before King of Elite so they can have more fun hurting one another.

Rich Russillo: The Realm look fully ready to team together, closing in on Kasey and Constance, however Kasey and Constance stand looking at each other, back and forth between The Realm, it’s clear they’re not too happy with it. BUT THEY DON’T HAVE TOO MUCH CHANCE TO THINK IT THROUGH AS THE REALM HIT SYNCHRONIZED BICYCLE KICKS TO CONSTANCE BLEVINS AND KASEY KAOS, WHICH CATCHES THEM OFF GUARD, AND SENDS THEM THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE! THEY APPEAR DAZED, NOT EXPECTING THE KICK EACH, BUT THEY DON’T KNOW THEY’RE IN EVEN MORE DANGER!

James Peters: THE REALM HEAD OUT ONTO THE APRON, LOOKING TO HIT THEIR OPPONENTS WITH ANOTHER MOVE, AS KASEY AND CONSTANCE QUICKLY GET BACK UP! HARPER AND SIERRA QUICKY RUN FORWARD, BEFORE DELIVERING STEREO FRONT FLIP SENTONS OFF THE APRON TO THEIR OPPONENTS, ONLY JUST BRUSHING PAST EACH OTHER TO AVOID COLLATERAL DAMAGE! TAKING HIGH RISK MANEUVERS, AS THE TAG CHAMPS STAND TALL ABOVE THEIR OPPONENTS EARLY ON IN THE MATCH! THERE’S NO COUNTOUTS, SO REALLY THIS ONE COULD SPILL OUT ANYWHERE IN THE ARENA IF THEY WANTED TO! THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO TO STOP THEM!

Rich Russillo: Harper and Sierra look elated, as they hype the virtual crowd up (:mjlol:) perhaps trying to get the fans invested? I mean they’re tuning into Voltage a deathmatch will already get them invested :mjgrin:, but whatever works best for them. The Realm then make their way back over to Kasey and Constance- BUT OH! LOOK AT THIS! KASEY AND CONSTANCE BOTH SWING WEAPONS TOWARDS HARPER AND SIERRA! DOUBLE CHAIR SHOT TO THE GUT, THEY’RE NOW INTRODUCING WEAPONS TO THE MATCH, AND ALL HELL IS SET TO BREAK LOOSE! BASHING THE CURVED STEEL AGAINST YOUR STOMACH MAY JUST CAUSE INTERNAL DAMAGE!

James Peters: CONSTANCE AND KASEY STARE DOWN AT EACH OTHER, CHAIRS IN HANDS, BEFORE CONSTANCE SWINGS THE FRONT OF THE CHAIR OVER SIERRA’S BACK! THE SLAP OF THE STEEL HITTING FLESH, PROBABLY DOING SOME DAMAGE TO THE SPINE! AND NOW IT’S HARPER LEE’S TURN, AS KASEY SWINGS THE CHAIR DOWN ONTO HER BACK, THE COLD STEEL KNOCKING HER TO THE GROUND! THE REALM WERE IN CONTROL FOR A SPLIT SECOND BUT NOW IT’S KASEY AND CONSTANCE WHO ARE LEFT TO DEA THE DAMAGE! NOW THAT WEAPONS ARE IN THE MATCH IT CAN ONLY ESCALATE FURTHER AND FURTHER UNTIL SOMETHING ENDS THE MATCH!


Rich Russillo: KASEY THEN OPENS UP THE CHAIR, LEAVING A GAP IN BETWEEN THE BACK AND THE SEAT, AND THIS CAN ONLY GO BADLY! WHEN GIVING THAT INSANE… THING A CHAIR, OR ANYTHING THAT INFLICTS EXTRA DAMAGE, OR ANY DAMAGE AT ALL IS ALWAYS A BAD THING, NO EXCEPTIONS! WITH HER BARE HANDS SHE’S MANAGED TO BEAT COUNTLESS UPON COUNTLESS WRESTLERS AND NOW, IN THIS MOMENT IN TIME, SHE HAS A FUCKING CHAIR! KASEY KAOS KNEELS DOWN NEXT TO HARPER LEE, BEFORE WRAPPING THE CHAIR AROUND HER NECK! HOOKING HER ARM WITH HER LEGS AND PULLING BACK ON THE CHAIR LEGS, SHE LOCKS HARPER IN A CROSSFACE!!! :damn:

Persephone: YES! MAKE HER BLEED!! :blessed:

James Peters: :krabs:

Persephone: LET’S GOOOOOOOO!!!!! FINALLY WE’RE SEEING SOME REAL FIGHTING! WE JUST HAD REX OUT HERE, NOW THIS!??? :blessed:

Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS IS NOT ONLY CRUSHING HARPER LEE’S WINDPIPES WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR, WHICH USUALLY THE CROSSFACE IS APPLIED TO THE FACE, BUT SHE’S PULLING HER ARM BACK TOO! WITH HER KNEES APPLYING PRESSURE TO THE LOWER HALF, WHICH IS WHERE SHE PULLS BACK! BASICALLY IT’S LIKE WHEN THE REMOTE CONTROL IS STUCK IN THE COUCH AND YOU HAVE TO YANK IT OUT! IT’S LIKE THAT BUT WITH HARPER LEE’S SHOULDER IN IT’S SOCKET! I KNOW IT’S A PERFECT ANALOGY, EXPECT NOTHING MORE FROM THE BEST! THE KING IF COMMENTARY! THE TOP TALKER! THE VALOROUS VOCALIST! 

James Peters: CONSTANCE BLEVINS HAS HAD ENOUGH OF WATCHING, NOW OPENING UP THE CHAIR, MUCH LIKE KASEY KAOS DID! NOW KNEELING DOWN AND GRABBING SIERRA BRADFORD BY THE ANKLE THAT WAS INJURED LAST YEAR! OH NO, SHE’S PUTTING THE CHAIR AROUND THE ANKLE! NO! NO! SHE’S GOING TO BREAK IT, PLACING THE ANKLE DOWN ON THE GROUND AND STANDING ON THE CHAIR… SHE’S GOING TO STOMP ON IT… NO!

(SMASH!)

James Peters: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT!? KASEY KAOS DROPS TO THE GROUND!!! :krabs:

Rich Russillo: HARPER LEE JUST HIT KASEY KAOS IN THE HEAD WITH A LIGHT TUBE! OH MY GOD, SOMEONE HAS FINALLY MANAGED TO OUT-INSANE THE INSANE, WHILST NOT BEING INSANE! THAT MAKES SENSE TO ME, AND I’M SURE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS! BUT KASEY KAOS IS DOWN, AND CONSTANCE BLEVINS SEES THIS! FOR A SPLIT SECOND SHE FEELS LIKE SHE’S ENJOYING IT, BUT THEN REALIZES SOMETHING! HARPER LEE OFF HER FEET, WITH THE OTHER HALF OF THE LIGHT TUBE IN HAND!

James Peters: HARPER LEE SMASHES IT OVER CONSTANCE’S HEAD TO SAVE SIERRA! CONSTANCE DROPS TOO, HOWEVER HARPER LEE HAS GLASS SHARDS IN HER HAND! CONSTANCE AND KASEY MAY HAVE THEM IN THEIR HEAD, THEY MAY HAVE THEM WORSE, BUT HARPER LEE SACRIFICED ONE OF HER LIMBS JUST SO SIERRA’S COULD BE FINE, BUT THAT MAKES ME WONDER, WHAT THE HELL IS UNDER THE RING? IS IT JUST A VAULT OF THE MOST DANGEROUS ITEMS?? BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO BE THE CASE AS EVERY TIME SOMEONE MANAGES TO PULL SOMETHING OUT THAT SHOULDN’T EVEN BE IN SOMEONE’S HOUSEHOLD, NO MATTER A WRESTLING RING!

Rich Russillo: Harper Lee tries to help Sierra Bradford up to her feet, however look behind her! Kasey Kaos is back on her feet, as if nothing had happened, as if the light tube wasn’t smashed over her head! Sierra is trying to warn Harper, but she’s too late, as she’s hit in the back of her head with a bag! There’s something in that back, and whatever it is it looks heavy, it’s completely weighing the bag down! Harper Lee grabs the back of her head, before Kasey Kaos quickly boots her HEAD FIRST INTO THE RING POST! OH GOD!

James Peters: HARPER LEE’S SKULL BOUNCES OFF THAT STEEL, AFTER TRYING TO HELP SIERRA UP TO HER FEET BECAUSE KASEY KAOS USED HER FOOT TO PUSH HARPER LEE STRAIGHT INTO THE RING POST! AND NOW SHE’S GRABBING SIERRA BY THE HAIR, AND THROWING HER INTO THE RING! AND NOW SHE SLIDES IN BEHIND HER, STILL HOLDING THE BAG IN HER HANDS! I DON’T LIKE THE AURA THAT BAG EMITS, I HAVE TO SAY! OH BUT HANG ON A SECOND, SIERRA BRADFORD IS BACK ON HER FEET FIRST! ‘ELECTRIC FEEL’ SHINING WIZARD TO KASEY KAOS!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT KASEY KAOS QUICKLY DUCKS, SIERRA’S LEG, AND SIERRA HITS THE ROPES, RIGHT LEG GOING TO THE OUTSIDE! BUT SHE MANAGES TO STOP HER LEFT BEFORE SHE CAN FALL OUT OF THE RING, BUT THAT MAY HAVE BEEN A BAD THING FOR HER, AS KASEY KAOS QUICKLY TAKES SIERRA OUT WITH A ‘CHERRY BOMB’ SHINING WIZARD OF HER OWN! EXECUTED DIFFERENTLY, BUT STILL THE SAME MOVE! SIERRA BRADFORD DROPS TO THE MAT, AS KASEY KAOS FALLS INTO THE COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

THRE-

James Peters: BUT HARPER LEE FROM THE TOP ROPE WITH A DIVING SENTON TO KASEY KAOS’ BACK! SHE JUST USED THAT HEIGHT ADVANTAGE TO BREAK UP THE COVER AND TAKE OUT KASEY! HARPER SLIDES INTO THE COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

THRE-

James Peters: BUT A KICK OUT! KASEY KAOS KICKS OUT, SAVING THE MATCH FOR HER AND HER TEAM BUT- OH! ON THE OUTSIDE, CONSTANCE BLEVINS! SHE HAS A FUCKING TABLE! A TABLE FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING!

Rich Russillo: This is not going to end well whatsoever, and the fact neither Kasey or The Realm knows it’s there is even worse! Constance has evil plans with that table, sliding it into the ring, before following up herself! Harper quickly notices this, finally, before charging to Constanc-

James Peters: HOWEVER CONSTANCE SIDESTEPS, AND THROWS HARPER OUT ONTO THE APRON! SHE THEN BEGINS TO HIT KNEE STRIKES STRAIGHT TO THE HEAD, HER SIGNATURE COMBO, BEFORE HARPER SLIPS TO THE OUTSIDE! CONSTANCE IS LEFT IN THE RING WITH A DOWNED KASEY KAOS AND A DOWNED SIERRA BRADFORD, ALONE WITH A TABLE! CONSTANCE BEGINS TO SET THE TABLE UP IN THE CORNER, AND TURNS AROUND, PERHAPS TO PICK UP SIERRA AND PUT HER ON TOP OF THE TABLE, AND ONLY GOD KNOWS WHAT SHE DOES NEXT! SHE WALKS OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING TO FIND SIERRA AND… She stops?

Rich Russillo: She spots the bag! And it seems she knows what’s inside the bag, however we have no idea! Instead of going for Sierra she picks up that dirty, stained bag, before going over to the table. What is she planning to do? Oh no she’s going to pour out whatever’s inside onto the table and… IT’S THUMBTACKS! THERE’S NOW THUMBTACKS ON TOP OF THAT TABLE!

Persephone: :blessed:

James Peters: CONSTANCE WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE, LOOKING DOWN AT THE THUMBTACKS, BEFORE SHE’S JUMPED FROM BEHIND BY SIERRA BRADFORD! SHE’S BACK UP ON HER FEET AND WILLING TO FIGH-

Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE SLAMS SIERRA HEAD FIRST INTO THE THUMBTACK-FILLED TABLE! :damn:

James Peters: SIERRA BRADFORD LOOKS OUT OF IT, HOWEVER CONSTANCE BLEVINS DOESN’T FEEL LIKE HER WORK HERE IS DONE, NOW GRABBING SIERRA BY THE HEAD AND TAKING HER AROUND TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE! WHATEVER HAPPENS NEXT, I DO NOT LIKE! IT IS GOING TO BE BRUTAL, NOT ONLY GOING THROUGH LEGITIMATE WOOD, BUT ASSISTED BY THUMBTACKS TOO! THUMBTACKS DIGGING THROUGH YOUR SKIN, THROUGH YOUR FLESH, IS BOUND TO CAUSE SOME DESTRUCTIVE DAMAGE! IT’S NOT THE MOST PAINFUL WEAPON IN A MATCH, BUT IT CERTAINLY IS UP THERE!

Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE BLAIR GRABS INTO SIERRA BRADFORD’S HAIR BEFORE LIFTING HER STRAIGHT ONTO THE TOP ROPE! I KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING, AND ONE OF THESE TWO WOMEN ARE GOING TO END UP IN EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF PAIN! FALLING THROUGH WOOD AND BEING PIERCED BY THUMBTACKS IS A SCARY THOUGHT, AND I THINK THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD SURVIVE THAT IS ME, WHICH IS WHY PERSEPHONE LOVES ME SO MUCH! SHE BEGINS TO CLIMB AFTER SIERRA NOW, AND IT COULD ALL BE OVER IN A MATTER OF SECONDS! 

James Peters: CONSTANCE BLEVINS GRABS SIERRA BRADFORD BY THE HEAD, AND HOOKS IT UNDER HER ARM! IS SHE LOOKING FOR A SUPERPLEX THROUGH THE TABLE? SHE LIFTS SIERRA BRADFORD INTO THE AIR- HARPER! HARPER IS BACK ON THE APRON, AS SHE PULLS SIERRA’S LEG OUT OF THE AIR, BACK ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BEFORE PUNCHING CONSTANCE BLEVINS RIGHT INTO THE GUT! CONSTANCE LOSES HER GRIP AND BENDS OVER, AS SIERRA FLOATS OVER BEHIND CONSTANCE, AND HOOKS HER UNDER HER ARM!

Rich Russillo: ‘LIGHTS OUT’! SIERRA LOCKS IN THE DRAGON’S SLEEPER ON CONSTANCE, TRYING TO FORCE HER INTO SLUMBER ON THE TOP ROPE! CONSTANCE IS TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT, BUT IT’S NO USE! SIERRA WON’T LET GO, SHE WON’T GIVE UP, AS CONSTANCE’S ARMS GET WEAKER AND WEAKER, I’M NOT SURE IF SHE’LL BE ABLE TO AVOID IT ANY LONGER! HER ARMS GO COMPLETELY LIMP, BEFORE SIERRA BRADFORD LIFTS HER INTO THE AIR! REVERSE SUPERPLEX THROUGH THE TABLE! THEY GO CRASHING THROUGH, AS BOTH WOMEN FALL UNCONSCIOUS! BUT HARPER LEE ENTERS THE RING, AND PLACES SIERRA ON TOP OF CONSTANCE!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here are your winners, the team of Sierra Bradford and Harper Lee, THE REAAAAAAAAAAALM!!!

(‘In Over My Head’ by grandson hits the speakers as Harper Lee stumbles back into the corner with a smile on her face, before it transitions into a worried look as Sierra Bradford barely moves. She kneels down to make sure she’s okay, before lifting her off her feet.)

James Peters: The champs do it, showing exactly why they are, well, the champs! Showing why they’re the top tag team in EAW, by beating Constance and Kasey at their own game. Which is, well, weapons I would assume. Those two are planning on tearing each other apart!

Rich Russillo: And it was probably The Realm’s co-ordination that helped them beat Constance and Kasey, probably because Kasey is insane and can’t coordinate with anything that’s not fake demons. :mjpls:

James Peters: Sure we’ll go with that. The main thing that matters is The Realm, the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions are your winners tonight, heading into King of Elite with all the momentum in the world. And they know it, as Harper drags Sierra up the ramp, with her head raised in victory-

Persephone: O.


James Peters: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?? KASEY KAOS FROM BEHIND GRABS CONSTANCE BLEVINS BY THE HAIR, BEFORE DRAGGING HER INTO THE CORNER WHERE THE THUMBTACKS ARE! THE MATCH COULD BARELY CONTAIN THEM, KASEY IS PREPARED TO KILL CONSTANCE!

Rich Russillo: THE INSANE MANIAC IS ATTACKING CONSTANCE! SHE BEGINS TO SLAM HER HEAD FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, LOOKING TO GIVE HER BRAIN DAMAGE, NO MATTER JUST HURT HER! BUT CONSTANCE BEGINS TO FIGHT BACK!

James Peters: CONSTANCE HITS BACK ELBOWS TO KASEY’S JAW, WHICH BREAKS THE HOLD, BEFORE FOLLOWING UP WITH SOME FOREARM STRIKES TO THE JAW! ONE AFTER ANOTHER, THIS IS RUTHLESS! SHE’S LOOKING TO SHOW KASEY NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TO HER BODY, SHE’S GOING TO DEFEAT HER AT KING OF ELITE! CONSTANCE BLEVINS LOOKS BEHIND HER TO SEE THE THUMBTACKS, BEFORE LOOKING TO DDT HER STRAIGHT ONTO THEM, WHICH WOULD DEFINITELY DO A LOT MORE THAN WHAT THOSE TURNBUCKLES DID TO CONSTANCE BLEVINS JUST MOMENTS EARLIER! HANG ON, KASEY SLIPS OUT!

Rich Russillo: KASEY COUNTERS WITH A HEADBUTT STRAIGHT TO CONSTANCE’S NOSE! ALL HELL HAS BROKE LOSE HERE! CONSTANCE SOMEHOW MANAGES TO KEEP HER BALANCE THOUGH, DESPITE THE FACT ANYONE, ANYONE, WOULD HAVE FALLEN OVER STRAIGHT INTO THOSE THUMBTACKS! BUT SHE’S DAZED, AND KASEY KNOWS THIS! SHE TRANSITIONS BEHIND CONSTANCE, BEFORE HOOKING HER HEAD LIKE SIERRA DID! BUT SHE DROPS HER A LOT QUICKER! ‘VAE VICTIS’ INVERTED DDT!!!!!!! :damn:

James Peters: SHE SLAMS CONSTANCE BLEVINS STRAIGHT INTO THOSE THUMBTACKS, WITH THE BACK OF HER HEAD TAKING THE MOST IMPACT! THAT ISN’T; GOOD FOR ANYONE! AND JUST LIKE THAT, KASEY IS THE ONE STANDING TALL! IT BEGS THE QUESTION, IS THIS HOW IT’S GOING TO END UP AT KING OF ELITE?? IS THIS HOW IT’S GOING TO END FOR THIS FEUD?? IS KASEY KAOS SENDING A PREVIEW, OR IS CONSTANCE GOING TO BE MORE HYPED UP THAN EVER???

(As Kasey Kaos stands above Constance Blevins, with a smile on her face, as Constance bleeds out, Voltage fades to commercial.)

(Commercial for NyQuil featuring the entire EAW roster…. Except Kassidy Heart.)

(The scene pans to Sofia Clarke in the panel desk. The King of Elite logo is in the background as she looks at the camera with a smile on her face.)

Sofia Clarke: We are a week away from King of Elite. Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen match after match being formed and put together. As of two weeks ago, we finally learned who will be the men and woman who will be vying for the chance for the crown and a guarantee opportunity at a World Championship match of their choosing. It’s one of the most important matches of the event as the entire world will be focused on whether Xander Payne, Kassidy Heart or TLA will be walking out with the crown. Now with me, it’s three of the individuals who may know a thing or two about each of the finalists. Representing Dynasty’s Xander Payne will be his son, who may or may have not been a focal point in his rivalry with Mr. DEDEDE last season. Ameer, glad to have you on board.

(Ameer Payne takes his eyes off his Nintendo Switch before realizing that he’s finally live. His eyes widen before putting away his Switch and focusing on Sofia Clarke.)

Ameer Payne: I’m only here because my dad said that he’d pay me for hyping him up.

Sofia Clarke: He’s paying you to be here? :skip:

Ameer Payne: Yeah, there’s a huge possibility that I’ll be kidnapped again. I mean, Kassidy Heart is probably lurking around.

Sofia Clarke: I can assure you that Kassidy Heart is nowhere around this Theatre, but her attendant and somewhat close ally to the Showdown representative, Dasha Rybarikova. I appreciate you for taking some time to be here. I know that you are always a busy woman.

(Dasha Rybarikova sits on the other side of Sofia Clarke with a smile on her face.)

Dasha Rybarikova: Pleasure to be here, Sofia. I needed to push Kassidy’s consultation with her stylists team for this, but anything for Kassidy.

Sofia Clarke: And lastly, representing Voltage’s own TLA is the right hand woman through the hectic world of the Poon Palace, Michelle McGillislutty. I hope that you weren’t busy as well.

(Michelle McGillislutty appears on the other end of Dasha Rybarikova with the skimpiest outfit that anyone has ever seen, but enough for her not to be censored.)

Michelle McGillislutty: Don’t worry, Gloria was able to cover things for me until I’m gone. Papi said that I need to hype him up for that bonus, so that’s why I’m here.

Ameer Payne: How much are we talking about?

Michelle McGillislutty: $6,900.

Ameer Payne: You’re getting paid that much? My dad says that I’m getting $200 for the entire thing. 

Michelle McGillislutty: You’re being ripped off, Chico.

Dasha Rybarikova: You guys are getting paid to be here?

Sofia Clarke: Oh, great! It seems like everyone is socializing and getting to know each other, but why don’t we begin this panel?I saw that we go in order of brand, so let’s begin with Xander Payne.

(We see a live render of Xander Payne pop up on the screen with all of his statistics from hometown, weight, finisher and accomplishments before highlights of his matches to reach the finals, most notably his semi-finals match with MITSUBACHI.)

Sofia Clarke: Alright, what’s everyones thoughts on Xander Payne.

Michelle McGillislutty: He’s fat.

Dasha Rybarikova: He has the advantage of being the largest man in this finals. From just talking with Kassidy about her competition, he is the only man to hold a ‘clean’ victory over her, even though, there’s a bit of controversy with that. Xander has had a tough year from losing at Grand Rampage to Operation: Doomsday to Road to Redemption. It seems like his failures are outshining his successes. To me, he seems like nothing more than a man with no confidence. He goes into these important matches, believing that he has it in the bag and the moment it doesn’t, he just shuts down and his confidence diminishes. 

Ameer Payne: Have you watched EAW programming, Sasha?

Dasha Rybarikova: It’s Dasha.

Ameer Payne: Whatever, but you could not be way off with my dad. He is the most confident person that I know. Whenever he walks into a room, he just oozes confidence. There’s no doubt that my dad is the hardest worker in any room that he steps in. He deserves to be the King of Elite. I’m sick and tired of him falling short of these opportunities. He deserves to be World Champion more than TLA and obviously, more than Trashidy Barf.

Michelle McGillislutty: Xander is crying like a big baby about losing one World Championship match and going on some emo phase like a teenager. TLA went through TWO years without winning the World Champion, but he never gave up. He continued to work on it. Yes, there were times where he was upset, but me, Gloria and Abuelita Pantera kept him in line and made him focus on the goal and guess what? He became World Champion. Maybe, your dad can learn a thing or two about TLA. Even, your ‘Mauler,’ Pasha. 

Dasha Rybarikova: It’s Dasha.

Sofia Clarke: Okay, I think that we’ve spoken enough about Xander Payne, but any last words, Ameer.

Ameer Payne: My dad is feeling good about his chances. He’s been working hard with training and he’s been getting physically and mentally prepared for what he is going to need to do at King of Elite. If there is someone that people need to be betting on, it’s my dad. He’s going to rip both Trashidy and TLA apart and take that crown.

Sofia Clarke: Interesting words from you, Ameer. We asked Xander Payne for his final thoughts on his upcoming match and this is what he had to say.

(The scene pans to Xander Payne standing in the confessional.)

Xander Payne: Many believe that all I want to extract from the King Of Elite moniker is the opportunity to vye for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship. Personally, I believe it is more than that. Everyone wishes they could one day become King Of Elite and use the world championship opportunity reward that comes with it. However, the reasons behind why I so desperately want this crown is much more complex than you think. Since the inception of this little tournament, the past winners have been nothing but embarrassments. Especially with the past two recipients, King Of Elite has never been able to bring forth this feeling of royalty and nobility. All of the individuals such as Malcolm Jones and The Visual Prophet only accepted the moniker for the compensation. When I win King Of Elite, I plan on taking it to the next level. I intend on restori- actually wrong terminology here. I intend on introducing a legitimate sense of grandeur and aristocracy to that moniker. For those who can’t fathom my vocabulary, that basically means I am going to put the King in King Of Elite. I am going to make that crown have real sentimental value and I am going to guarantee that my reign as King Of Elite will not be forgotten in the many years to come. 

Xander Payne: Kassidy Heart and TLA are just here to follow in the same footsteps as The Visual Prophet and Malcolm Jones. Sure, I love the reward of being able to jockey for world championship gold, but this tournament deserves better. The crown is worthy of the best representative and that is me. Not Kassidy Heart. Not TLA. ME!! MOI!!! YOURS TRULY!!! Kassidy Heart is the biggest whore in the western hemisphere! All she will accomplish is dirtying the King Of Elite eminence and continue to diminish its prestige. Kassidy Heart is far from a worthy recipient, and don’t get me started on TLA. The world-renowned media sensation… An individual who is considered as one of Mexico’s greatest exports. All those little quotations that make him look good all don’t mean anything when you look at who TLA is on the inside. TLA is a slithering snake of a psychopath who’s only objective is to slow me down. TLA doesn’t need this tournament. He is already a hall of famer for christ sakes, and that is the problem. TLA is stealing spots from up-and-coming stars such as me and that is what makes me sick to the stomach. 

Xander Payne: TLA is a filthy rat and it is evident in his demeanor. He most likely moves an astronomical amount of drugs and trafficking women against their wills. Does that sound like a man deserving of the King Of Elite throne? Nuh-uh. We bring ourselves back to that blonde silicone bitch. She is clearly fucked up in the head. Kassidy evidently hasn’t fully recovered from the brain damage that I gave her at Grand Rampage two years ago, and she continues to spread her contagious dumbass around the nation. She is a borderline sick freak who is still brainwashed by Kassidy Heart. Oh, and have I mentioned that Kassidy is clearly on the brink of being a serial killer? What exactly do these things make Kassidy Heart and TLA qualify as a worthy recipient of the King Of Elite this year? They don’t. 

Xander Payne: Make no bones about it, the three of us essentially went through inferior competition to get here. Kassidy went face-to-face with the blood-sucking mosquito formerly known as Ronan Malosi and TLA competed against neanderthals on the level of Candice Ava. Over on the Dynasty bracket, it was the same story. Maxwell, Donovan Duke, and Mitsubachi were all nothing compared to Xander Payne, and it was the truth when I made light work of them. Truthfully speaking, we all easily progressed our way to this point in the tournament. Now? Now is when the fun and games stop. Now is when that easiness and walk in the parks end because they are stepping into the ring with Xander Payne. No matter what anyone says, I am at my peak. I am at my prime, and it gets even better from here. I have made it known that 2021 would be the year of the Paynekiller, and since I have made that statement, it has been looking onwards and upwards for the future of Xander Payne. Not a single soul in this entire universe, especially TLA and Kassidy Heart can measure up to my standards. They don’t even possess a close amount of intelligence, instincts, and awareness that I possess as your Wrestling Genius. They don’t harness that ruthless aggression that I bring to the squared circle and beyond. Those two are probably rolling their eyes at what I have to say, but this is the truth. Xander Payne as King Of Elite is what you need and you’ll see it when you believe. Sooner or later, you are gonna have to come to terms with reality. The reality is I am what this business requires to thrive in the upcoming decades. Kassidy Heart and TLA aren’t. I am the future. I am tomorrow. I know where my worth is at, and it is sky fucking high. Let it be known, I am the uncrowned MVP of the entire Elite Answers Wrestling. I will not stop until I get what I want because I am more hungrier and ambitious than I have ever been in my twenty-year career. 

Xander Payne: That is why I, Xander Payne, is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONN to be recognized as your King Of Elite. 

(The scene pans back to Sofia Clarke and the panel.)

Sofia Clarke: Powerful words from the Dynasty representative. Let’s move on, shall we? Next, we have Showdown’s representative, Kassidy Heart.

(We see a live render of Kassidy Heart with the statistics like her hometown, weight, height, finishers and accomplishments. It highlights her journey in the tournament and most notably, her match against Consuela Rose Ava.)

Sofia Clarke: What are everyone’s thoughts on Kassidy Heart’s chances at KOE?

Michelle McGillislutty: Zero chance.

Ameer Payne: Imagine thinking that a woman can be King of Elite? :mjlol:

Dasha Rybarikova: Just like your father. What a shame.

Ameer Payne: I’m being realistic. Kassidy Heart is the smallest person in the match. My dad can sit on her and she’ll just go flat. Maybe, we can just place the spotlight on her and she’ll just melt. She’s plastic anyway. 

Dasha Rybarikova: Kassidy is probably one of the finalists who is not afraid to put her life out there for the world to judge. She’s one of the most headstrong individuals that I’ve ever had the privilege to work alongside with. I’ve sat with her as she talked about life, her career and everything in between. I’ve had dinner with her when Ryan has been out of town for business meetings. Just the things that she was able to open to me about have been fascinating. She wants to make history. She is more than hungry to make history and I believe that she’ll be able to get the job done. 

Michelle McGillislutty: Oh god, I cannot wait until she tries to fool the world with her sob stories. TLA doesn’t need to do any of that because he already has won the hearts of the fans. That’s something that Kassidy nor Xander will be able to do. 

Ameer Payne: My dad calls Kassidy a hoe, but with a ‘w.’ He also tells me that she smells like fish for some reason.

Michelle McGillislutty: She may have a yeast infection.

Dasha Rybarikova: Oh great, we’ve resulted in slut shaming women. It’s 2021. Kassidy can out wrestle both Xander and TLA. I can’t wait for her to make any of those men submit like a bitch at King of Elite. It’s going to be satisfying to watch her put those two men in their place and for everyone to be bitter at the fact that she’s making history once again. She’s anticipating the reactions as I am. Bet on Kassidy Heart, one of the best women that this company has to offer and a monster inside the ring. Mark my words, this is her moment.

Sofia Clarke: Just like with Xander, we reached out to Kassidy Heart about her final thoughts and this is what she had to say.

(Kassidy Heart is in her lavish penthouse in upstage New York. She is sitting on a velvet loveseat with a glass of the best champagne known to man in her hands.)

Kassidy Heart: I apologize for this video being last minute. Dasha had reminded me throughout the week about posting a ‘final thoughts’ video, but from satisfying my husband, picking out a super kewt outfit for King of Elite and relishing in the idea that people are triggered by my appearance in the finals, I lost track of time. At the end of the day, you can’t race perfection. What I got to say is going to be better than any of the verbal garbage that is going to come out of Xander Payne and TLA’s mouths. I’m just anticipating for the sheer stupid that those two are going to bring to the discussion all week. Does it really matter what they got to say? I wouldn’t think so because there’s nothing that those two are going to bring to the table that is going to shake me in my designer shoes. 

Kassidy Heart: When you look at the competition in this match, I would like to believe that I am the overwhelming favorite in this match. You really think that Xander Payne’s rants about being “hungrier than ever” is going to do anything? Or how about TLA’s talk about how everyone are going to catch his ‘manos’ and make me cry? :mjlol: If these is the things that I should be anticipating this week, then, this is really going to be easier than I anticipated. I’m almost laughing at the fact that these are the best that Dynasty and Voltage have to bring into this match. Both of them have never been able to defeat me clean with zero controversy. Both of them have never been able to out best me on any given day and King of Elite will be another one of those days. I can already hear Xander munching on junk food, trying to remind everyone of the idea that he was able to get a victory over me at Grand Rampage in 2019 or that TLA eating some mediocre Mexican food, trying to gloat on the fact that he was able to get one up on Kassidy Heart like that virgin fruitcake Drake King didn’t do anything to help him whatsoever. In the ring, I am truly untouchable. There is no one who can match my level of technical skill. There is no one who can match my desire to make history. I’m foaming in the mouth at the fact that I am going to be making history. Me, Kassidy Heart, is going to be in the history books as the first woman to win King of Elite. It doesn’t get better than that.

Kassidy Heart: I’ve been blessed in my career. I have been able to achieve so many things. I have been able to take part of so many great moments and King of Elite will be no different. I know that the best is yet to come with me and that’s something that should scare every Elitist in this company. I’ve been preparing myself physically and mentally for this match. I’ve been putting myself through grueling workouts, absorbing the advice and information that my DaddyGawd has blessed upon me. All of the countless nights at the gym and starving my body of wanting to rip the heads off of Xander Payne and TLA have been for King of Elite. There is nothing more so enticing than bitting off the flesh out of those two men. Ever since I learned who would be the Elitists vying for that King of Elite crown, I have tried so hard to keep myself contained. There’s a time of place to let ‘The Mauler’ out. There’s a time a place for me to inflict as much pain and torture on Xander Payne and TLA and that’s at King of Elite. Just like my victories in the King of Elite tournament, my win at King of Elite is inevitable. That crown is mine to place on top of my head. This whole company and everyone in it, is going to be mine. Go ahead, be mad, cry, throw a tantrum about my upcoming win, but hearing all of those noises are nothing, but pure bliss in my ears — almost like the screams coming out of whichever opponent that I manage to lock in my submission moves as I bite into their flesh and make them tap out. Xander, TLA, ‘The Mauler’ sends her regards.

(Kassidy Heart takes a sip out of her champagne glass before it pans back to Sofia Clarke and the panel.)

Sofia Clarke: Very cutthroat words from the Showdown representative. Now, let’s move onto the next one, TLA.

(A live render of TLA goes up on the screen along with statistics such as hometown, weight, height, finishers and accomplishments. It highlights his run in the tournament and most notably, his semi-finals match with Ms. Extreme.)

Sofia Clarke: Any opinions on TLA?

Ameer Payne: How in the hell is TLA in the finals? Is this Voltage’s best option to send to the finals? :wtf:

Michelle McGillislutty: Yes, it is and it shouldn’t be a surprise that TLA is in the finals. You think that anyone can keep that vato down? Unlike your papi, TLA drops down and gets back up each time. It seems like your dad has issues with getting himself up without any assistance. 

Ameer Payne: TLA is nothing, but a joke.  It should have been Myles in the finals, so I can watch my dad beat the hell out of him again.

Dasha Rybarikova: TLA seems to be the weakest link out of the three Elitists in the match. He seems like the odd one in the match. He’s almost forgettable. When he won the semi-finals match over Ms. Extreme, people were talking about Ms. Extreme rather than him and what he had just accomplished. Imagine being so forgettable, they would rather talk about your opponent rather than you.

Michelle McGillislutty: People will be talking about TLA when he wins at King of Elite. I just hope that your friend doesn’t go through another confidence issue like she did in 2018 with Empress of Elite. 

Dasha Rybarikova: She’s in a better place than she was three years ago and she’s more confident in who she is.

Ameer Payne: My dad is as well and he’s going to wipe the floor with Trashidy and TLA.

Michelle McGillislutty: Dream on, kid. I know that your dad and Kassidy have their own little beef, but don’t turn your back on TLA. Don’t ever count him out. He maybe the ‘underdog’ of the match, but he’s conquered odds time and time again. Never had things handed to her like Kassidy has.

Dasha Rybarikova: She earned her spot in the King of Elite finals and she’ll will destroy everyone in her path to win that crown. She goes into her matches and it’s almost flawless and effortless with her.

Ameer Payne: Maybe, if she isn’t focused on her looks, she MAY stand a chance, but my dad has this match in the bag and from how things panned on Voltage last week, it seems like the odds are in his favor. Ignore what happened on Showdown and Dynasty. Voltage last week is what we can expect at King of Elite. 

Sofia Clarke: It seems like we’re going to stop there because we’ve reached out to TLA for his final thoughts, so let’s roll the footage.

(The camera fades in to TLA at the Poon Palace where they are still cleaning up the blood on the carpet from where Azrael beat the shit out of that Poon. TLA thinks that he would have to ask Consuela for help in getting this stain out if he hadn’t been pinned by her on Voltage. The struggle is real.)

TLA: Yo yo yo you think that a vato is down bad but you ain’t recognize that all that has happened is only going to work out in my benefit. You see Drake King fucking me over was always a possible outcome. I knew that. He knew that. My opponents knew that. He a crafty motherfucker to still pull it off anyway but you know what? I am prepared for anything. You see taking an L in that manner just don’t mean shit to a hustler like me. I am built different and will show the whole world exactly how I bounce back and how I get my grind on. So gracias Drake. You have provided me with that extra motivation that imma need to win this whole tournament and crown myself as the new King of Elite! They all told us that Azrael couldn’t be freed. We got that shit done. They all said that TLA could never be World Heavyweight Champion. We got that done. They said that TLA didn’t belong in EAW and that Drake King was gonna deport he brown ass. We made damn sure he ain’t got that shit done. So you see Drake can cost me as many luchas as he wants but mi culo moreno ain’t going nowhere. You see imma live to fight another day and thrown down like only the real ones do all up in that King of Elite finals. Imma cause a ruckus.

(The employees scrubbing the floor of the Poon Palace sigh as they go to order more cleaning supplies knowing that with the mood TLA is in more blood is soon to follow. TLA reassures them that the fight is going to be taking place in EAW not in the Poon Palace.)

TLA: Tho if my haters dare to step to me up in here imma have no choice but to throw down with them. Pero don’t you worry none cuz imma be the one cleaning up. Gonna clean up all over they bitch asses they fuck with me. I go hard doing this shit. Xander Payne got 9000 pounds of ass to whip and that shit still ain’t enough for me. You see imma get that venganza on Consuela for getting the W over me this week. No hard feelings tho. Chica did what she had to do. Taking advantage of Drake’s cowardly gringo self to get a well deserved yet undeserved victory over yo boi. Nah that shit is contradictory. She deserves it but she also going to deserve the reality check I will be handing her next time we beefin’ when she recognizes that it’s a whole different story when the game is fair and level. And even if it ain’t you know that I almost pulled that shit off anyway. Almost went hard enough to win that match for myself and Drake all by myself. Homie would have been better off not even coming out to the ring.

(TLA gives Drake King the middle finger through the camera before sitting down on top of his desk to continue the interview.)

TLA: But for now we got Xander and Kassidy. Kassidy may think she is a big shot now who can talk that smack cuz she beat Consuela. But yo I have been there done that and I will be telling her exactly what I have been brought out here to say to the whole world. So y’all brought us all out here saying shit about how we have to tell you why we think we are going to win? Yo you ain’t even gotta ask me you know how I roll by now. You see shit can get repetitive around here at times. You know exactly what kind of motherfucker you dealing with when them Ambitionz az a Ridah come blasting across them speakers. You know that you dealing with the Baddest Hombre on the Planet and I am coming to lay these manos down on everyone in my path. You know I got much luv for these fans, for this business. I am coming thru to rep for Voltage rep por mi patria. When I hit that ring you know I am feeling the luv and feeling the power and filled with all that electricity that I just got no choice but to leave my opps shook. Imma make Kassidy Heart my bitch you know that I have been running thru the competition. Rex McAllister. Myles. Minerva. Ms. Extreme. Real bad vato ain’t give no fucks about no Avas in he path you know imma drop yet another one with that quickness one of these days. Don’t matter what the past record is I be out here letting you know what the future gonna be. The future gonna be TLA. Persephone hatin’ all the way.

(TLA is shown asking the cameraman if Persephone will be on commentary for his match but they just shrug.)

TLA: Bueno. I really don’t give a fuck either way. In fact bring her out maybe she will hop in the ring and try and hate on me to my face and see what happens. Otherwise she just gonna sit there in her little chair crying as I win the match and force her to remember that I have beaten Rex on at least three occasions. You best not underestimate yo boi I am bringing that fire and nobody ever counts TLA out. Now I tried to help Xander out and give him that pep talk but he stays salty. Must be all the chips and popcorn he be eating you know he just filled to the brim with all that sodium. I see all y’all down there scrubbing that blood out the floor but yo homie about to be a real salt miner this week. Ye we getting all them crystals outta Xander’s salty ass and you know that them working environments be real dangerous. But it is for his own good and if he ain’t thank me for it we gonna mine one of them outta him too. You be tryna hit me with that Last Sedation and kicking Steroid Dawg lets see how you like it when I kick the shit outta you. After I get done with y’all and win that King of Elite you gonna have to make like Taco Bell and do yo wrestling in Saudi Arabia from now on cuz y’all pendejos ain’t allowed on my turf no more.

(TLA is reminded by his workers to stop talking shit about Taco Bell while on camera as they have just dodged one lawsuit and don’t need another. The cameraman cuts out the sound but it is clear that TLA is continuing to talk shit anyway so they have to cut the video feed as well.)

(The scene pans back to Sofia Clarke and the panel.)

Michelle McGillislutty: God dammit, there was twenty more minutes of that promo. 

Sofia Clarke: And, I bet it’s fantastic, but unfortunately, this is all the time we have. Michelle, Ameer and Dasha, thank you for joining me. I wish your respective representative the best of luck at King of Elite.

(Ameer Payne, Dasha Rybarikova and Michelle McGillislutty all nod and say their thank you to Sofia Clarke.)

Sofia Clarke: We’ll be right back with more Voltage after this! Stay tuned! 

(The camera cuts to a commercial featuring the EAW wrestlers who bring guns and knives with them to the locker room because they are real men.)

(Voltage fades back to ringside, and inside of the ring is a table with a chair on each side, as well as a contract, two microphones and a pen on top of the table. The virtual crowd cheers, knowing that a contract signing is coming up. Persephone is at the head of the table, and she looks like she can’t be bothered. She clearly doesn’t want to be there and she doesn’t even put in any effort to hide her unamusement as she begins to speak.)

Persephone: Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome to the contract signing for one of the worst World Championship matches in history. SOSA Henderson and Terry Chambers are both equally awful at every single thing they do, and I can’t wait for this to end so I can go home. Contract signings are never interesting when Rexy isn’t involved, and that’s not gonna change now. Anyways, Terry and SOSA hurry up and get out here please.

James Peters: ….

Rich Russillo: …

Persephone: Oh wait. I’m supposed to be hyping this match up huh? Oops.

(The crowd immediately goes dead silent after Persephone’s harsh words, but as ‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons hits, the virtual crowd gets loud once again. They begin cheering as Terry makes his way down the ramp, and as he finally makes his way inside of the ring he stares down Persephone, clearly not approving of her words.)

Persephone: Okay… There’s the fatty. Now where’s the fraud Champ?

(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits, and the virtual crowd begins booing. Terry Chambers looks right at the stage as SOSA Henderson walks out with the EAW Championship on his shoulder, but SOSA doesn’t even seem to notice as he makes his way down to the ring. SOSA looks confident as usual, finally entering the ring and immediately picking up the microphone on his side of the table.)

SOSA Henderson: You sure you wanna do this bro? I’d reconsider if I were you.

(Terry remains silent, still staring at SOSA, meanwhile Persephone looks a bit annoyed as SOSA finally sits down.)

Persephone: Anyways… Uh… This is unfortunately the EAW Championship match at King of Elite, and here today are two of the Elitists that are somehow considered the best on Voltage. There’s obviously nobody better than Rexy, but I guess these two could be an extremely distant second place. Actually, that’s way too generous. Maybe like, fifth-

(Terry looks up at Persephone, clearly having heard enough of her.)

Persephone: …. Right. Anyways sign the contracts or whatever. I don’t wanna be here any longer than I need to be.

SOSA Henderson: Aye, this is ya last chance Terry. You still got time to back out if you want to. Go ahead, run away. Go home, take King of Elite week off. Spend time with your family or some shit. We all know you’re pussy, but beyond that you’re a fuckin’ failure. You’re not cut out for the big leagues, and you’re just gonna embarrass yourself if you sign that. Every single time you get in this position you fucking choke. Every time. Doesn’t matter the match type, doesn’t matter the stipulation.. Shit, we’re competing in a Four Corners Chain match, and you don’t have great history with that stipulation either huh? Just one year ago at King of Elite 2020 you faced Andrea for the title on my shoulder right now, and you did it in the same match we’re gonna be competing in next week. Our match at King of Elite? It’s gonna end exactly like that one did, with you getting outsmarted and the Champion retaining their title. 

(Terry stays silent.)

SOSA Henderson: What? You forgot what happened back then? It was only a year ago. Bet, allow me to refresh your memory.

(SOSA points up at the videotron, and suddenly it lights up.)

[SCREENBAR – King of Elite 2020]

(RECAP: A recap of the end of Terry Chambers versus Andrea Valentine begins to play. Andrea is on Terry’s back locking in a sleeper hold, and the two have already hit one buzzer at this point. Terry tries to fight Andrea off of him, but in doing so he accidentally backs up into a second buzzer, which both competitors end up hitting. This struggle would help Andrea, as at this time Terry doesn’t realize that she’s been hitting each buzzer at the same time as him. Terry manages to backpedal into one more corner, and while he manages to knock Andrea off of him, Andrea hit the third buzzer. Both competitors only have one buzzer left at this point.)

(RECAP: Andrea tries to jump back on top of Terry, but Terry is able to effortlessly throw her off. Knowing that the buzzers are about to reset, Andrea charges right back towards Terry, but Terry pops her up and sends her into the corner with a turnbuckle powerbomb. Unfortunately, he didn’t realize that Andrea already hit the other three buzzers, and this bucklebomb allowed Andrea to capture the victory, retaining the EAW Championship.)

(Voltage fades back to ringside, and SOSA Henderson has a grin on his face, meanwhile Terry looks more and more frustrated.)

SOSA Henderson: Really? That’s how ya dumbass lost? You let some bitch not even a third of ya size outsmart you and beat you. Couldn’t be me. That could never be me, and that’s the difference between us. That’s why I’m the EAW Champion, and you’re the challenger. I been outsmarting the entire EAW roster this season one after the other. Rex McAllister, Ahren Fournier, shit I overcame an entire Extreme Elimination Chamber to get here and you were one of the bitches I beat. 

(Terry slowly pics up his microphone, before finally beginning to speak.)

Terry Chambers: Are you done?

(SOSA looks amused seeing Terry finally respond, and he actually quiets down to let him speak.)

Terry Chambers: You know you really didn’t have to remind me of what happened at King of Elite last year, or this past Road to Redemption. I completely remember those events. In fact I never stopped thinking about them. Andrea got the better of me at King of Elite. She beat me, and there’s nothing more I can say about that other than history will not repeat itself. I may have been outsmarted at King of Elite you know damn well you didn’t outsmart me at Road to Redemption. We both know what happened that night, and it’s never gonna happen again. You got lucky, and your luck is going to run out in just one week. I failed a lot in these World Championship matches, but that cycle ends at King of Elite. You’ve had an impressive run SOSA. You’ve been Champ for a while now, but at King of Elite this ends. This entire title reign, all of this bullshit about you outsmarting the entire roster, this entire act is going to come to an end once I dethrone you and win my FIRST World Championship. I’m not about to let this end the exact same way all of my other Championship matches have. I’ve worked far too hard to make it to the top and I thought Road to Redemption 2019 would be my moment. It wasn’t. I thought King of Elite last year would be my moment. It wasn’t. I thought this past Road to Redemption would be my moment, and it should’ve been but it wasn’t. Time after time I keep reaching the top and I keep coming this close to finally becoming Champion, but this time I’m not going to come close. I’m not going to almost finish the job. I’m getting it done this time SOSA. I’ve learned from my mistakes of the past, and this time I’m ready. This is my moment.

SOSA Henderson: Well shit, it’s nice to have an active imagination bro. Maybe you’ll become World Champion in ya dreams, but you’ve gotta be joking if you think you got what it takes to beat me. How many people gotta be in your position and get dropped on they heads before you start to understand that nobody has what it takes? Especially not you. People who actually MADE IT to the top failed to beat me. Rex McAllister held this title more than once yet he couldn’t hold onto it once I got in the picture. Ahren Fournier won an Extreme Elimination Chamber to become World Champion yet couldn’t repeat history once I was the one holding the title. TLA was World Champion this time last year, and I couldn’t give any less of a fuck of he wins King of Elite this year because he’s not gonna win another World title at my expense. You never had what it took to be Champion. Why do you think this is gonna be any different than your last opportunities, huh Terry? Because you “learned?” Because you “grew?” That’s what you say every time yet the result never changes. When are you gonna give it a rest? Everyone’s tired of hearing the same shit from you every few months just for you to meet the same result.

(Terry points at the EAW Championship on SOSA’s shoulder.)

Terry Chambers: I’ll give it a rest once I’m holding that. Once this cycle comes to an end and I’m finally holding the EAW Championship. If you’re tired of all this failure, all these setbacks, and me being put in this same position over and over, then you’re in luck SOSA because I’m not leaving King of Elite without that Championship. I’m not walking out of that building unless I have the EAW Championship around my waist for the first time in my career. You think this is all some sort of game, and that’s fine SOSA. You’re going to regret all these jokes. All the fun and games, all the weeks of you trying to mess with me, you’re going to fucking regret ALL of it at King of Elite. I can’t wait to see the look on your face SOSA, because only one of us is going to be embarrassed and humiliated in a week, and it’s not going to be me. It’s the Champion that’s in way over his fucking head. 

(As soon as Terry finishes speaking he signs the contract, before shoving it to SOSA. SOSA has a grin on his face, and chuckles to himself a bit before finally signing the contract himself. The virtual crowd begins cheering heavily once the contract is signed, knowing that the match is now indeed official.)

Persephone: Oh thank God, I can leave now.

(As Persephone gets out of the ring and takes her leave, both Terry and SOSA get out of their chairs and stand face to face with each other. SOSA holds up the EAW Championship in front of Terry. Both men begin exchanging words with each other, and after Terry looks at both the Championship and its holder he looks to exit the ring.)

James Peters: WAIT A MINUTE! SOSA JUST ATTACKED TERRY FROM BEHIND! TERRY JUST ATTACKED TERRY, AND NOW HE HAS HIM IN A FRONT FACELOCK! SOSA IS BACKING UP BEHIND THE TABLE, AND NOW HE PULLS TERRY UP! SOSA IS GONNA TRY TO SUPLEX TERRY THROUGH THE TABLE-

Rich Russillo: TERRY PULLS HIMSELF DOWN TO HIS FEET! TERRY PULLS HIMSELF DOWN, AND NOW HE SHOVES SOSA AWAY FROM HIM! RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!!

James Peters: NO! SOSA ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! Terry quickly manages to get back to his feet before charging back at SOSA, BUT SOSA PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE AND SENDS TERRY OVER IT! TERRY WAS JUST SENT OUT OF THE RING! This contract signing looks like it’s ending in chaos! Both men signed the contract, but it looks like they’re not willing to wait until King of Elite to begin fighting! SOSA now notices Terry getting back up, AND HE QUICKLY BEGINS RUNNING THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE BY THE EAW CHAMPION-

Rich Russillo: CAUGHT BY THE CHALLENGER! TERRY CHAMBERS CATCHES SOSA HENDERSON RIGHT OUT OF THE SKY- BUT SOSA POKES TERRY IN THE EYES! Terry drops SOSA, and SOSA immediately rams Terry into the barricade as both men begin making their way up the ramp! SOSA with a kick to Terry’s stomach, and now he’s punching away at Terry! SOSA tried getting a sneak attack in on Terry not long ago and I thought it backfired, but apparently it didn’t as SOSA is all over Terry! I want to say that this may be a preview of what’s to come, but these two aren’t fighting in any other match! They’re fighting in a Four Corners Chain Match!

James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A HUGE FOREARM! SOSA immediately stumbles backwards, AND TERRY TAKES SOSA DOWN WITH A LARIAT! SOSA is crawling up the stage, but Terry is following right behind him before pulling him back up to his feet! Terry lifting SOSA up on his shoulders, AND I THINK TERRY IS LOOKING TO DELIVER A T-5 FROM THE STAGE, BUT SOSA MANAGES TO SLIP OUT OF TERRY’S GRASP BEFORE PUSHING HIM FURTHER UP THE RAMP AND TO THE STAGE! This isn’t looking good, someone needs to do something quickly!

Rich Russillo: SOSA HENDERSON WITH A SUPERKICK! TERRY IS STUNNED, AND SOSA GOES TO CAPITALIZE WITH A DDT, BUT TERRY PUSHES SOSA OFF OF HIM- BEFORE DELIVERING THE MOMENT OF SILENCE!! SOSA Henderson is down! 

(Terry drops down to a knee to catch his breath, before yelling at SOSA to get back to his feet.)

James Peters: What is Terry doing? I don’t like this, I really don’t like this one bit! 

Rich Russillo: SOSA is getting back to his feet, but for once I think staying down might be the best option! SOSA HENDERSON IS UP, AND NOW TERRY CHAMBERS CHARGES TOWARDS HIM!

*BOOM!*

James Peters: OH MY GOD!! TERRY CHAMBERS JUST SPEARED SOSA HENDERSON OFF OF THE STAGE!! TERRY JUST SPEARED SOSA OFF OF THE STAGE AND BOTH MEN JUST CRASHED INTO THE ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT! 

Rich Russillo: Oh no, this is exactly what I was worried about! These two just want to hurt each other, and now look at what they did! If this is what they’re doing to each other now, just imagine what they’ll do at King of Elite!

James Peters: Honestly, if these two make it to King of Elite, can we even call them human? Just look at what they put each other through!

Rich Russillo: I don’t know…

James Peters: Well… I’m James Peters and with me is Rich Russillo. Persephone couldn’t stand to be here anymore so she left, but we’ll see you all at King of Elite, where hopefully SOSA Henderson faces Terry Chambers for the EAW Championship in a Four Corners Chain match.

(Tons of referees and officials come out to check on both Terry Chambers and SOSA Henderson. Both of them are clearly not in any good condition after putting each other through the electrical equipment, but in the end their hatred for each other proved to overshadow everything else. As the officials tend to both men, Voltage fades out for the final time.)

(EAW logo buzzes.)
