Voltage 3/1/20

(EAW intro plays.)

(Voltage fades into a highlight video of last week’s episode.)

(The show kicked off with an explosive segment that featured Charlie Marr and the EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine. As always, things got heated between the two Elitists who will face off against one another in an Electrified Steel Cage of Death Match at Shock Value. Charlie would even break two of Andrea’s fingers! At one point, Malcolm Jones would make his way to the ring much to Charlie’s shock. There are no more restraining orders, or anything like that. Malcolm would reveal to both Charlie and Andrea that he would be facing the EAW World Champion at Grand Rampage. That wasn’t Malcolm’s only announcement. He would add that at Shock Value he would be the special guest referee for the world championship match! As expected, a brawl would erupt between the three in the ring with Malcolm and Andrea working together to dispose of Charlie.)

(RECAP CONTINUES: Voltage would hold two qualifying matches for the ‘Unique Opportunity’ Match at Shock Value. The first one would end with controversy as two Elitists making their Voltage debut, Grizzly Bear Rocco and Alun Wyn Jones, would have their match end in a double count out. The other qualifier between Shawn Sturgis and Komatsu Ogawa would be a little more routine. Despite another impressive showing for Komatsu, Sturgis would emerge victorious and book his ticket to Shock Value.)

(RECAP CONTINUES: Things continued to break down for Korey Gaines and Shortfuse PAKA ahead of their Shock Value grudge match. Both would have matches and Korey would take it upon himself to join the commentary team for PAKA’s match against Terry Chambers. It would be a pretty easy victory for Terry, but after the match Korey would strike! A fight would break out which would only get stopped when Captain Charisma came out and ordered both men to his office. Prior to Gaines’ match against Charlie, Captain Charisma would have a talk with Gaines. PAKA would finally show up, but as expected, both men just wanted to fight. PAKA would suggest that they make their match at Shock Value a ‘Career versus Career’ match, and Gaines would accept. Despite losing to Charlie later on, Gaines would look good in his match and no doubt he’s looking forward to finally getting his hands on PAKA come Shock Value!)

(RECAP Continues: The main event of the night would feature a rematch for the Interwire Championship. The new champion, Ms. Extreme, would take on the former champion, Dr. Bethany Blue, and to no one’s surprise, these women did not hold back. They threw everything they had at one another! Towards the end of the match, Ms. Extreme finally gained the upper-hand on the good doctor. She would summon all her strength and go for the pin after hitting Dr. Blue with ‘Glass Ceiling’, but as she did, the lights went out! Creepy laughter is heard and when the lights rise back up, Lars Grier would be choking out Ms. Extreme with a crowbar! Rath and Levi would be there as well, and Terry Chambers would rush the ring! The Corvus would retreat but the damage had been done, and there would be a rather interesting exchange of smiles between the good doctor and Lars Grier!)

(The highlight video fades out and a live shot of the Salt Lake City crowd is shown. Gold and white pyro explodes from the stage as “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami blares through the speakers. After getting some great shots of the hot crowd, the camera shot switches to Rich Russillo and James Peters who are standing behind the broadcast booth. The announcers are wearing slacks, sports coats, and t-shirts that depict an image of one of those old school ‘WANTED’ posters with Charlie Marr’s face on it.)

James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Sunday Night Voltage! I’m James Peters, and as always I’m being joined by Rich Russillo!

Rich Russillo: We are a week away from the first Voltage exclusive free-per-view of the decade, Shock Value. Last week, we found out that Malcolm Jones will be the special guest referee for the EAW World Championship match between Andrea Valentine and Charlie Marr. That will surely be explosive… pun intended.

James Peters: :wow:! And that’s not all. Several announcements were made during the week that had Shock Value implications. After putting up an incredible fight against Fire and Ice, Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price would issue separate challenges for Shock Value. Next week, Sierra will take on Consuela Rose Ava, whom we understand will be medically cleared in time for that event.

Rich Russillo: Sarah’s challenge was accepted as well. She will take on the number one contender for the New Breed Championship, Jalyn Garcia! That match will no doubt be a showcase of two Elitists with bright futures here in EAW.

James Peters: Tonight’s show promises to be action packed and honestly, Rich, I can’t wait to get started.

(James and Rich don’t have to wait long because before they can say anything else, “If Ya Smell” by Adam Massare hits. The crowd erupts in what will no doubt be the loudest ovation of the night and The Woogieman steps out from behind the guerilla curtain. Woogie is dressed in his gear because he does have a match against the debuting Arrow Thunderman, but more interesting, Woogie has a piece of paper in his hand.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME… THE WOOGIEMAN!!!

(Woogie strolls to the ring and gives Bella an irresistible smile. The Voltage ring announcer nearly dies on the spot because her heart is so full after receiving that kind of attention from Woogie. She shyly passes the microphone to the GOAT and climbs out of the ring. The crowd is cheering for The Woogieman, even after his music fades out, and he has to hold his finger to his lips to even get them to quiet down.)

The Woogieman: The Woogieman appreciates the support of the people, but right now he has something he wants to talk about. As an official spokesperson for PETA, The Woogieman is expected to protect all animals from harmful situations. As you know, The Woogieman and Jesse Barlow will face off against one another in an Electric Eel Deathmatch. The object of this match is to beat your opponent to death and throw them into a swimming pool full of Electric Eels to be shocked. The Woogieman knows this is a silly match, but he won’t lie and say he doesn’t want to see a group of eels attack and shock the fallen body of the ungrateful Jesse Barlow. Jesse Barlow deserves to be eaten alive by more than just electric eels after the absolute disrespect he has shown The Woogieman. The Woogieman has done nothing but bend over backwards and try to help Jesse Barlow find out about his birth family, and it’s unfortunate that the situation has gotten so dire between The Woogieman and Jesse Barlow.

(The Woogieman looks a bit remorseful as he shakes his head.)

The Woogieman: Earlier this week, PETA sent The Woogieman a cease and desist order *Woogie holds up the paper* informing him that he could no longer be a PETA sponsor and compete in a match such as an Electric Eel Deathmatch.

(The crowd starts to heavily boo this.)

Crowd: FUCK YOU PETA! FUCK YOU PETA! FUCK YOU PETA!

The Woogieman: The Woogieman agrees because as far as he is concerned, he will fight Jesse Barlow in any kind of match, anywhere! So The Woogieman calls up PETA, and tells them that at Shock Value, this Electric Eel Deathmatch will go on regardless of what they have to say. PETA begs and pleads with The Woogieman to call off the match, because they know they need The Woogieman as their spokesman, however The Woogieman refuses to do so. The PETA has no other choice but to lose Woogie as their spokesperson, but something tells me that The Woogieman will be just fine. In fact, he will be very good after Shock Value because he will have rid Voltage of the ungrateful Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin!!! The Woogieman understands that PETA is pissed, and that animals might be harmed come Shock Value, but sometimes a man has to make sacrifices and The Woogieman will sacrifice whatever he needs too in order to win next weekend.

Crowd: WOOGIE! WOOGIE! WOOGIE!

The Woogieman: :wow:!!! That being said, The Woogieman is ready for his big match tonight, so Arrow Thunderman, bring your candy ass to the ring right now!

(The crowd erupts once again as The Woogieman tosses the microphone down and motions for Thunderman to come to the ring. Arrow Thunderman’s theme song begins to play.)

Rich Russillo: Well this match should be… unique. I’m not quite sure what to think of Arrow Thunderman, but I guess we’ll see what happens during this match.

James Peters: Let’s not sugarcoat things. I don’t think anyone sitting in this arena right now expects Arrow Thunderman to give The Woogieman much of a fight tonight. Woogie is too big, too strong, and too experienced for this newcomer to handle.

Rich Russillo: Hold on… that’s not Arrow Thunderman that just walked out.

(The crowd is booing like crazy because Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin have come out. Hannah is clinging to Jesse, clearly ecstatic to be back with her leader, and Jesse has a microphone in his hand. Inside the ring, The Woogieman looks extremely tense because this is not who he expected to come out.)

Jesse Barlow: Of course a deceptive person like you wouldn’t care about the lives of innocent animals. Woogieman, you make me sick. I thought for sure you were a person who had better values and would want to spread the same message that Hannah and I do about making the world a better place. The only thing you have gotten right in this thing between us is that I did want to use your celebrity to spread our message. For whatever reason, these sheep look up to you and cheer for you, and that would have given us a lot of support. However, now that I’ve seen the disgusting things you are capable of, and I have seen how easily you jerked me around with this falsified information about my birth family, maybe it’s for the best that you decided to turn down my offer. You are a horrible person, Woogie, one of the worst I have ever seen and I grew up as a member of the Luciano crime family. That’s saying a lot and come Shock Value, I’m going to make sure you regret everything you have done to me, and to my precious Hannah.

(Hannah looks up at Jesse with her big blue eyes and he gives her a fond look.)

Jesse Barlow: You used Hannah as your bargaining chip and because she’s such a good little trooper, she went along with your scheme. Hannah cares about my happiness and she knows how badly I want to find out about my birth family, and you took advantage of her kindness. That’s not something that sits well with me and I will make you pay for that. I don’t like this match anymore than you do, but unlike you, I wasn’t put in a position to stop it. Just so you know, Woogie, whatever happens next weekend at Shock Value rests squarely on your shoulders. I won’t be held accountable for what I do to you, or what happens to those innocent little creatures.

The Woogieman: Now hold up, Jesse Barlow. If The Woogieman correctly recalls, you AND Hannah Marin both had a chance to stop this match. The Woogieman demanded an apology and if you had followed through on that, we could have called a spade a spade. Woogie never wanted this match, but he also understands that you are a stubborn, prideful man. That’s why The Woogieman generously offered to accept an apology on your behalf from Hannah Marin. All Hannah had to do was apologize to Woogie and kiss his Italian leather dress shoe! She wouldn’t do that, and as a result we have this match, so if you ask The Woogieman, whatever happens next weekend is actually all on you.

(Jesse grips the microphone and shakes his head, clearly annoyed with how Woogie has managed to twist the situation to make himself look like the hero. Hannah bites down on her bottom lip and gives Jesse an apologetic look. He reassures her she did nothing wrong, which seems to soothe her for the time being.)

Jesse Barlow: You lied about my biological mother and father.

The Woogieman: The Woogieman told no lies. Talk to the Lucianos. They will confirm it.

(For the briefest of moments, Jesse looks a bit uncertain. Before he can react, an unknown man bursts through the curtains and shoves himself between Hannah and Jesse. He snatches the microphone from Jesse and stares down at the ring.)

Arrow Thunderman: I AM ARROW THUNDERMAN AND ALL YOU NEED TO SHUT THE HELL UP! EAW IS ABOUT GET HIT WITH THE THUNDER AND THE WOOGIEMAN IS ABOUT TO SUFFER!

James Peters: OH BOY! JESSE AND HANNAH WERE SUPPOSED TO JOIN US FOR COMMENTARY BUT ARROW THUNDERMAN HAS TOSSED THE MICROPHONE AND RAN TO THE RING! THEY MIGHT NOT EVEN HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE IT DOWN HERE BECAUSE THIS NEWCOMER IS ALREADY IN THE RING!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Rich Russillo: THE BELL RINGS AND THIS MATCH IS OFFICIAL! WOOGIEGOAT IS WAITING FOR THUNDERMAN! HE IMMEDIATELY GREETS THUNDERMAN WITH THE MOST DEVASTATING DOUBLE AXE-HANDLE TO THE BACK I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE CRUSHED ARROW THUNDERMAN’S SPINE!

James Peters: WOOGIE ISN’T LETTING UP! HE IS DESTROYING THUNDERMAN WITH THOSE AXE-HANDLES! HE FINALLY STOPS AND PULLS THUNDERMAN UP TO HIS FEET! WOOGIE WITH THOSE VICIOUS KNIFE-EDGE CHOPS NOW! OVER AND OVER HE CHOPS THE HELL OUT OF THUNDERMAN’S CHEST! WOOGIE TRANSITIONS INTO A WRISTLOCK AND HE WHIPS THUNDERMAN INTO THE ROPES!

Rich Russillo: HE CATCHES THUNDERMAN ON THE REBOUND AND HOISTS HIM UP IN THE AIR! SPINEBUSTER! SPINEBUSTER! ARROW THUNDERMAN IS PLANTED INTO THE MAT AND THE WOOGIEMAN PAUSES TO ENJOY THE CHEERS OF THE CROWD!!!! THEY ARE CHANTING HIS NAME AND URGING HIM TO FINISH OFF ARROW THUNDERMAN AND SEND A MESSAGE TO JESSE BARLOW!!!!

James Peters: THE WOOGIEMAN RIPS OFF HIS ELBOW PAD AND SLINGS IT INTO THE CROWD! HE HITS THE ROPES AND COMES BACK DROPPING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ELBOW IN THE BUSINESS ACROSS THE CHEST OF ARROW THUNDERMAN! WOOGIEMAN WITH THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE WOOGIEMAN!!!

(“If Ya Smell” hits the PA system and the fans react with sheer delight as The Woogieman gets up and gets his hand raised.)

Rich Russillo: :wow:!!!! That was the most inspirational and amazing performance I have ever seen in my life. The Woogieman is so gutsy… so brave! :wow:!!!! I can not believe he just destroyed Arrow Thunderman like that! Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin have got to be beside themselves right now!

(The camera cuts to Jesse and Hannah, who have watched this entire thing from the stage. They don’t look impressed at all right now. Woogie is staring them both down and he finally points at them, signalling that come Shock Value, it’s going to be the end for both of them.)

James Peters: The Woogieman just made an example out of Arrow Thunderman and sent the message that he is coming to Shock Value with an intent to win!

(Hannah and Jesse give twin glares before they turn around and exit. Woogieman smirks as soon as they’re gone and throws his arms up to celebrate with the people. Voltage fades into a commercial break.)

(Commercial break for UPS because FedEx is fucking incompetent and will deliver your Freshly package to the wrong house, and then be absolutely useless when you call their customer service line to inquire about your missing delivery they apparently can’t track down the driver. Go UPS!)

(The camera fades into the backstage area of Voltage as it enters the medical room that is housed under it. The desk has been cleaned off and the only thing on it is a gold plated name plate reading “Dr. Bethany Blue M.D.” as the crowd can’t help but start booing at the figure behind the desk. The Good Doctor is sitting in a chair with her legs propped up on the desk as she checks her watch and shrugs as she looks at Nurse Goldstein.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Funny, our next patient should be here already unless my watch is broken. Oh well Ra, I suppose we have some downtime don’t we? Tell me, what do you want to talk about?

Nurse Goldstein: Well there’s more than enough time to talk about other stuff later but while we’re at it, care to talk about Shock Value and the match you have along with your partner Lars Grier?

(The Doctor smirks at that question as she gives a delightful nod.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: It’s safe to say I am absolutely delighted to be teaming with Lars and the rest of The Corvus. This could not have worked out better! I love how easily the Avas piss people off and make enemies. Surely, they’re as excited as I am, as they appointed me their Primary Care Physician! I’m sure we can schedule some appointments with Lars so we, as a team, can get on track right? Can’t spell teamwork without the world ‘team’!

Nurse Goldstein: If Lars is an early bird, we could probably him in around eight A.M., Doctor Blue.

(Dr. Blue nods, pleased at the thought of potentially seeing Lars first thing in the morning. A small smile crosses her face.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: You know what else is nice about Shock Value, Ra? I get to be in the ring with Terrance again! I’m thankful for that, I’m the reason he hasn’t blown up yet! I hope he’s followed the complimentary Weight Watchers program I sent him as well, surely that should help.

(The Doc says that with a cheery expression as she clasps her hands together with a sigh reminiscing on good times… Territorial Invasion where she almost killed him, Wicked Games where she almost killed him again…)

Dr. Bethany Blue: We still happen to have some unfinished business with Camille, don’t we? I’ll be so glad to finally get one over on her. It will be great. I have a little surprise for both Camille and Terry come Shock Value. Want to know what it is, Nurse?

(Nurse Goldstein nods her head. Of course she wants to know what Dr. Blue has planned.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: I have been working with some top rated researchers to work on a cure for, you guessed it… THE CORONAVIRUS! I guess that just adds more to my resume doesn’t it? Not only am I continuing to chase championship gold and keep my medical practice going, I am striving to reach an even greater goal. This is a goal I’ve had since I was a little girl, and that’s to win the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize! Do you know how incredible I would look in my pictures with ‘Nobel Peace Prize Winner’ written underneath my face?! Once I cure the Coronavirus, that accolade is as good as mine, plus I will be making medical history! Finding the cure of Coronavirus would save the world, and I would be the one to have done that! ME! Dr. Bethany Blue!

(Nurse Goldstein nods, clearly excited for the doctor. But there is one thing she doesn’t quite understand.)

Nurse Goldstein: What does curing Coronavirus have to do with Camille and Terrance?

(Dr. Blue removes a pair of blue Nitrile gloves from her lab coat and puts them on. She then removes unmarked vials from the opposite pocket.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: In these vials are samples of the very virus I’m about to cure and guess what I plan to do? I plan to inject Camille and Terrance with it!

(Nurse Goldstein looks a little startled.)

Nurse Goldstein: Do you remember what happened at King of Elite, Doctor Blue? Last time you tried to syringe someone it backfired and you had symptoms of the flu for weeks!

Dr. Bethany Blue: Oh well, live and learn from your mistakes and that’s exactly what I’m doing. I’m going to use Camille and Terrence as my lab rats and once they’re incapicitated by the Coronavirus, I’m going to experiment with the two cures I have been working on. Surely, one of them will work, so really, at least one of them will survive this. I can’t wait to make history when I save one of them… or oh gosh! What if I’m able to actually save both of them?!

(The doc gives a round of applause for herself as Nurse Goldstein is still a bit shocked by this turn of events. Dr. Blue lets out a dreamy sigh, no doubt picturing herself holding that coveted Nobel Peace Prize. She finally flashes her pearly whites at Nurse Goldstein once again.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Tell me, in all seriousness… will Jake be proud of me for being so smart?

Nurse Goldstein: I assure you he will be. He’s a nice kid, I think he only wants the best for you. However, if Jake doesn’t seem to be proud of your noble achievements, I might know someone that will.

(Nurse Goldstein says that as she looks up at the ceiling for a moment with a look of lust before looking back at Dr. Bethany Blue. Dr. Blue gives Nurse Goldstein a suspicious look.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Who could that be Nurse?

Nurse Goldstein: Well… RATH!

(The Doc is startled at the response for a moment as she quickly jumps out of her seat in shock and braces herself with the desk.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Wh- Huh? I’m sorry can you please repeat that Nurse Goldstein? Because it sounded like you said-

?
?
?
?

Nurse Goldstein: YES! RATH! I mean have you seen those muscles?! That man could lift boulders! Sure there’s Lars, but Rath …

Dr. Bethany Blue: Did you swallow a pill? Are you ok? Do you need meds? ARE YOU INSANE?!

Nurse Goldstein: No, I just think he’s cute-

Dr. Bethany Blue: WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU THINK RATH IS CUTE NURSE GOLDSTEIN?!

(Meanwhile, while this argument is happening Lars Grier has approached the medical room as he looks around before slowly opening the door. Both the Doc and Nurse Goldstein don’t notice as they’re too engrossed in their argument. Lars’ eyes widen for a moment hearing the topic of it before slowly stopping it with a simple knock on the door. Both of them quickly turn around and clear their throats trying to act as professional as possible. As Nurse Goldstein blushes once she notices Lars is there)

Lars Grier: Do you have a minute to talk, Bethany?

Dr. Bethany Blue: Dr. Blue, but of course. Please make yourself at home in my humble abode.

(Lars slowly sits down with a feeling of being uncomfortable as he looks around and gets himself situated. Dr. Bethany Blue sits back down at her desk as she tries to compose herself and looks at Lars. All of a sudden, she starts firing off a million and one questions.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: How’re you feeling? Are you okay heading into Shock Value? Do you need an appointment? I can fit you in at any time. Do you have someone I can call who can fax me over your medical history??

Lars Grier: Bet- err, Dr. Blue, please… I am perfectly fine at the moment. There’s no need for all of this. I came here to make sure we are on the same page as we head into Shock Value.

Dr. Bethany Blue: Excuse my ignorance to the matter, I only want the best for my partner heading into Shock Value. But yes. As long as you want to rip the fake orange hair out of the adopted Ava’s head, and make sure Terrence pays for being a fat slob and getting involved in business that does not concern him, then I assure you. We are on the same page.

Lars Grier: Good. Victory won’t be enough. I want to hurt them and send a message to the rest of Voltage that The Corvus can’t be stopped. I fully expect you to pull your weight in the match.

Dr. Bethany Blue: Wash your doubts away with some hand sanitizer, Lars! I don’t plan on losing this match.

(Dr. Bethany Blue takes out a bottle of hand sanitizer and passes it over to Lars with a smile. Lars looks at it and uses it while slowly rubbing his hands with a confused look on his face. He’s clearly just trying to humor her.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: It’s safe to say I won’t let you down. Cause we’re friends! Socially awkward friends of course but that’s far from the point at hand. You’d be SHOCKED to see the tricks I have up my sleeve, because I always do. Get it, SHOCK?

(The doctor laughs nervously and Lars gives her an odd look. Finally he nods.)

Lars Grier: Right. Just make sure you do your part.

(Lars holds out his hand as the Doc happily shakes it. Nurse Goldstein watches with a shy look on her face as her face practically says ‘never wash that hand again’.)

Lars Grier: I’ll see you next weekend.

(Lars turns to leave the office, but he stops in his tracks as he sees who’s entered the office.)

(Ms. Extreme jabs Lars right in the gut with her signature shattered glass baseball bat before swinging for the fences and hitting him right in the side of the face! Bethany quickly realizes and hops out of her seat quickly attacking her while she’s focused on Lars. Bethany continues to stomp away on Ms. Extreme as Nurse Goldstein quickly runs out to help. Suddenly an all familiar shadow of a figure turns the corner of the hallway they’re at as Terry Chambers runs over to help Ms. Extreme! This was clearly an orchestrated plan by the two as Terry has a razor wire wrapped chain in his hand!)

(Terry whips the back of Nurse Goldstein taking her out as she falls to the ground! Bethany realizes and runs towards Terry but not before Ms. Extreme cracks the shattered glass baseball bat right across the back of her doctor’s coat! Blood stains the Doctor as Terry whips the chain right into her chest before lifting her up and connecting with a T-5 taking her out!)

(But it’s not over as Lars regains consciousness and quickly hits a superman punch on Ms. Extreme before focusing on Terry! But Terry quickly shoving him into the wall landing fist after fist on him! Ms. Extreme regains stability as she quickly runs to join in. Both Terry and Ms. Extreme grab Lars and run with him aimed for something!)

BOOM!

(As Lars gets thrown right into a powerbox and collapses onto the ground. The medical team quickly runs out and begins accessing the damage as Refs run over as well and push Ms. Extreme and Terry back as both of them have wicked smirks on their face and have accepted the damage they did. Lars is fried and out as Dr. Bethany Blue is rolling around the ground in pain along with Nurse Goldstein. The camera pans around to the fallen comrades, as the Interwire Champion and Terry look at one another and grin.)

Ms. Extreme: Not bad, Terrence.

Terry Chambers: Thank you, Camille.

(Ms. Extreme flashes Terry a sly smile.)

Ms. Extreme: Consuela would approve.

(Terry’s grin grows wider until it clicks in Terry’s head what Ms. Extreme has just said.)

Terry Chamber: Now hold on… I was just checking on her back at King of Elite.

Ms. Extreme: :usure:

Terry Chambers: YES! Damn.

(Ms. Extreme throws back her head and laughs, walking off and leaving Terry there. He surveys the damage one final time, watching everyone check on Lars, Dr. Blue, and Nurse Goldstein.)

(Voltage fades to commercial.)

(Commercial break for ‘Up and Vanished’ on Oxygen.)

(When Voltage returns, Bella is standing in the middle of the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…

(Line Up by Aerosmith hits. )

Bella Braxton: Weighing in at 330 lbs, from Billings, Montana…

(Uniformed authority figures of the local variety lead the way as Grizzly Bear Rocco steps out onto the stage. They surround him as escorts to either protect Rocco from the crowd’s mixed reaction or to protect the crowd from Rocco. From the angry look on Rocco’s face, it has to be the latter.)

Bella Braxton: He is the Grizzly Bear… JOE…. ROOOOCCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

(The security team escorts Rocco down the ramp and to the ring where Rocco shoves past them and damn near yanks the ring down by the ropes as he pulls himself up onto the apron. He ducks inside and just stands dead center of the ring for a moment before moving to one of the far corners to wait.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent…

(Land of the Innocent by feathers hits.)

Bella Braxton: From London, UK… she is the Guardian Angel…

(Sarah Price hits the stage and throws her hands up to the crowd. Her waving is infectious and the crowd is going absolutely insane in response. She’s all smiles and sass as she salutes each side of the arena from her position on the stage. Gotta’ give the people her respect for all their love and adoration.)

Bella Braxton: SAAAAAARRRRRRAAAAAHHHH PRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE!

(Sarah Price makes her way down the ramp, slapping hands with her fans along the way. She hops up onto the apron and turns to bow to the crowd. Sarah hops over the ropes and into the ring, running and climbing to the top turnbuckle to point out at those Sarah Price and SASS signs in the crowd. And there are a lot of them.)

Rich Russillo: Rocco’s going to destroy her happy ass.

James Peters: Why are you so against people being happy? Or nice?

Rich Russillo: This is the real world, JP. Nobody’s that nice.

James Peters: She’s not nice. She’s…

Rich Russillo: Don’t you dare.

James Peters: SASS-y!

Rich Russillo: I’m going to kill you.

(DING DING DING!)

James Peters: Saved by the bell! And this match is underway!

Rich Russillo: The Grizzly Bear exploding out of the corner and rushing for Sarah Price right here to kick things off! Rocco lunges at Sarah to grab her but the So-Called Superhero is up and over, using the ropes to leapfrog over Rocco with a little parkour action! Even I have to admit that was pretty cool.

James Peters: Rocco spins around to give chase. Sarah Price catches Rocco in the face with a dropkick! Rocco stumbles backward and into the ropes. Rocco bounces off the ropes and splatters Sarah Price against the mat with a stiff arm clothesline! Rocco clearly looking to stop Sarah’s momentum before it can even begin!

Rich Russillo: Rocco stalks Sarah Price as she rolls over to her hands and knees. Rocco stomping right down on that hand of Sarah Price and backing up to admire that handiwork! Sarah Price is in pain and she rolls to her feet, trying to shake off the sudden pain coursing through her hand. A calculated assault by the Grizzly Bear right there.

James Peters: Right you are, partner. Looks like Rocco is aiming to take Price apart here tonight. Piece by piece. A diabolical plan, indeed.

Rich Russillo: Who the hell says diabolical?

James Peters: Well it is!

Rich Russillo: Sarah Price trying to mount some offense here and running at Rocco! Price feints a leap up and Rocco falls for it, reaching out to catch her but Price is already sliding between his legs. Price hops up onto Rocco’s shoulders and is raining down right hands to the top and side of Rocco’s skull! Sarah Price showing some much-needed innovation to try and topple this absolute bear of an opponent!

James Peters: It’s Clobberin’ Time and Rocco is feeling those punches! Rocco stumbles around the ring but Sarah Price is holding on for dear life as she keeps punching Rocco in the head! Rocco reaching up and grabbing that punching arm! Sarah slams her other fist into Rocco’s skull and shit! That’s her hurt hand! Sarah’s pain just went up exponentially!

Rich Russillo: Rocco capitalizes by pulling Sarah up onto his hands and holding her high above his head. Rocco’s stalling with her up there and… Military Press Slam! Sarah Price hits the mat like a ton of fucking bricks! And Price is feeling that pain right now! Price rolling to try and put some space between herself and the truck that is Grizzly Bear Rocco headed her way!

James Peters: A devastating move for sure and it doesn’t look like Grizzly Bear Rocco has any intentions of letting up. Rocco grabbing Sarah by the hair and pulling her back up to her feet. Rocco wastes no time in pulling her in for a soul-crushing Bearhug! I can hear Price’s screams from here and that doesn’t sound good at all!

Rich Russillo: This! This is what I’m talking about right here! You see Rocco’s size?! His strength?! There is no way that someone as small and as weak as Sarah Price is going to be able to stand up to the King of the Monsters! There’s just no way in hell! Say goodbye to Sarah Price, everyone! Her career is ending tonight!

James Peters: I think you might be ri– WRONG! Sarah Price showing a little bit of that Sassitude with a violent headbutt to the face of Joe Rocco! Rocco steps back and his grip loosens allowing Sarah Price to drop free! Price grabs Rocco around the head and drops all the way down to the mat… JAWBREAKER! And the Grizzly Bear is down! The Grizzly Bear is down!

Rich Russillo: What a cheap move by the So-Called Superhero! I can’t believe she would resort to such things! And now, look at her! Going for the cover to try and sneak away with a victory!

James Peters: Let the record show that Rich is just mad this favorite new Teddy Bear is getting rocked by the Guardian Angel.

ONNNNEEEE!

Rich Russillo: And a vicious kickout by Joe Rocco! The King of Monsters is still in this folks, as if there was ever any doubt.

James Peters: Both competitors are back on their feet and Sarah Price is still looking to keep the fight on her terms! Price rushes Rocco and eats a Standing Side Kick right to her face! Price stumbles to the side and Rocco grips her up from behind… GERMAN SUPLEX! Rocco really working to keep Price as still as possible! Clearly, this man knows exactly how he wants to dismantle our favorite superhero.

Rich Russillo: And dismantle is definitely the name of the game. Rocco with Price’s legs in hand and there it is! The Texas Cloverleaf! Rocco’s got it locked in and Sarah Price can feel that strength and that power between her screams of pain! Price struggling but Rocco is holding true! I don’t think YOUR favorite So-Called Superhero is getting out of this one, JP!

James Peters: Listen to that crowd, Rich! These people out here tonight beg to differ! They are chanting her name!

Crowd: Sa-Rah Price! Sa-Rah Price!

James Peters: Sarah can hear the crowd chanting for her and she’s fighting through the pain. She pushes up onto her hands and reaches… reaching out with that previously hurt hand as she tries to grab a hold of the bottom rope! She’s too short! She can’t reach it!

Rich Russillo: It’s over! I told you!

James Peters: Price pours everything she has right now into pulling the huge monster that is Joe Rocco behind her as she dives for the rope! A last ditch effort that… PAYS OFF! She did it! Price has the bottom rope and the official is right there to make Rocco break the hold! Rocco hesitates but a warning glare from the ref keeps him from getting disqualified and he lets go.

Rich Russillo: That bleeding heart official’s backing up Rocco now to give Sarah Price a chance to get her wits back about her. Price pulls herself up by the ropes and stumbles a bit, holding her back with her free hand. She’s still wobbly but her on her feet and Rocco barrels past the referee and towards Sarah!

James Peters: Rocco lunges and Sarah grabs Rocco around the head, swinging herself over top him and bends him backwards into position… NECKBREAKER! Price with some tremendous innovation here tonight! She’s trying to topple a giant and its taking everything she can think of and more!

Rich Russillo: That’s not going to keep the Grizzly Bear down and Rocco’s back on his feet. Rocco stomps after Price as she leaps onto that second rope, springboards off and right into a Knee Strike to the face of Joe Rocco! Rocco stumbling towards the adjacent ropes! Rocco’s woozy but still on his feet.

James Peters: Sarah Price watching Rocco for a moment and she sees where he’s headed. Price’s smile lights up this room as she takes off for the second set of ropes and… SPRINGBOARD KNEE STRIKE again! Rocco is still on his feet but he’s stumbling towards the side this side of the ring now! Sarah’s got the same look in her eye…

Rich Russillo: Oh no! No no no!

James Peters: A THIRD SPRINGBOARD KNEE STRIKE and Joe Rocco looks like he’s about to fall down! Somebody yell timber for this guy!

Rich Russillo: Look at that, JP! Look at him! He’s still up! He’s still standing! He’s still strong!

James Peters: … did you just watch Antwone Fisher?

Rich Russillo: What a movie, man.

James Peters: Agreed. Sarah Price looking out at the crowd now as Joe Rocco stumbles towards that last set of ropes! Rocco has no idea where he is but this crowd is really rallying behind Sarah Price!

Crowd: ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!

Rich Russillo: Sarah Price hitting those ropes one more time and the springboard knee strike connects for the fourth time tonight! And that looks like it might be it for the Grizzly Bear.

James Peters: TIMBER!

Rich Russillo: Rocco hits the mat hard and Sarah Price wastes not even a second in going for the cover.

OOOOONNNNE!

TWWWWOOOOO!

James Peters: Oh holy shit!

Rich Russillo: HAHAHA!

James Peters: The King of Monsters just lifted Sarah Price off him and is now holding her up! And referee can’t even continue the count because his shoulders are also off the mat! That strength, ladies and gentlemen!

Rich Russillo: Rocco hurling Price to the side like a raggedy ann doll and I get the feeling that this mountain of a man is done playing with this little girl.

James Peters: I think you’re right, partner.

Rich Russillo: Rocco stalking Price as she gets back to her feet. Rocco with a heavy boot to Price’s gut the moment she turns around towards him. Rocco hoists the doubled over Sarah Price up onto his shoulders and takes a moment to hold her there and glares out at the people that were just chanting her name moments ago… DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Jesus! Sarah Price has to be dead! She has to be!

James Peters: The Guardian Angel is out like a damn light and sprawled out across the mat after that brutal display. Rocco grinning as he steps over her splayed body and drops down to cover her with a hook of the leg.

OOOOONNNNNNNNE!

TTTTTTWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

TTTTTTTTHRRRRRRRRRRRRR–

Rich Russillo: NO! NO! Sarah Price kicks out! HOW THE HELL?!

James Peters: Sarah Price digging deep and using every ounce of strength in her body to power out of that pinfall attempt by Joe Rocco! How she managed to move a mountain like that only shows just how much of a superhero she is, Rich!

Rich Russillo: Or the ref was just counting too damn slow.

James Peters: Even Rocco can’t believe it. Sarah Price dragging herself away from an incredulous looking Rocco and giving herself a chance to recover. She forces herself back up to her feet and Rocco stands up as well. Rocco turns to point threateningly at first the ref and then at Sarah Price. Looks like he’s giving a warning to both of them.

Rich Russillo: And he should! This match should’ve been over right there! Hell, it should’ve been over in the first thirty seconds! But I don’t think Rocco’s going to be letting either of them get away with their shenanigans again. Rocco looks pissed.

James Peters: Agreed. This might be Sarah’s last chance to put this Bear down.

Rich Russillo: Or live to see tomorrow. Either one.

James Peters: You’re not wrong.

Rich Russillo: Here she comes! Sarah Price rushing for Rocco and he sidesteps, pushing her off in the direction of the ropes! Sarah Price leaps up and springboards off that top rope and sails back in Rocco’s direction. She’s aiming to tag him with another Knee Strike since they were so effective earlier! BUT NO! Sarah Price just walked into a bear trap because he just caught her! And… CAPTURE SUPLEX!

James Peters: That’s gotta’ be it for Sarah Price! I don’t think she’s getting up from that one! She doesn’t even look like she can move.

Rich Russillo: This is the part where I told you so!

James Peters: Rocco pulling Price up now and sending her into the corner with a vicious Irish Whip. Price’s back smacks into the turnbuckle and she stumbles back out towards the center of the ring!

Rich Russillo: HERE HE COMES! THE POUNCE! JOE ROCCO HEADED FOR SARAH PRICE FULL PAIN AHEAD!

James Peters: PLOT TWIST!

Rich Russillo: WHAT?! NO! NO!

James Peters: SARAH PRICE WITH A BICYCLE KNEE OUT OF NOWHERE! And Joe Rocco is laid out right there on the mat! Center of the ring! I think he might be out cold!

Rich Russillo: No! Not like this! Come on! GET UP, ROCCO! I AIN’T HEAR NO BELL!

James Peters: Sarah Price climbing that turnbuckle now and she’s up top! Here she comes! So much for Rocco’s… HAPPY ENDING! Sarah Price gets ALL of that moonsault and she immediately hooks the leg! With both arms!

OOOOOONNNNEEEE!

TTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

(DING DING DING!)

Rich Russillo: WHOA!!!!

James Peters: :damn:

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… here is your winner… Sarah Price!!!

(The crowd erupts in pure joy as “Land of the Innocent” by Feathers begins to play. Sarah rises to her feet and has a huge smile on her face as the referee raises her hand in the air.)

Rich Russillo: Amazing win tonight for Sarah Price as she heads to Shock Value to face Jalyn Garcia in a dream match of sorts! One has contendership to the New Breed Championship. The other is an amazing definition of the new breed here in EAW.

Rich Russillo: Rocco is going to have to get it together before heading to Shock Value. There is a ‘Unique Opportunity’ on the line for either himself, Shawn Sturgis, or Alun Wyn Jones. He will have to shake this loss off and forge ahead.

(The camera takes a final shot of Sarah celebrating before fading to commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Sugar Bear Hair sleep vitamins.)

(The camera fades into the interview section of the backstage area. The camera starts at the high heels of the interviewer before slowly panning up to reveal it to be one of the Voltage reporters, Persephone Tsitsipas. The crowd has a slightly mixed reaction to her as let’s admit half of them don’t know who she is or if they do, don’t remember her. She hasn’t been seen on TV for a while but that didn’t stop her as she gives a bright smile looking to the camera with a face of innocence before speaking in somewhat of a bossy tone)

Persephone Tsitsipas: HELLO EAW! Yes yes it is I, stop your applause I know I am of royalty, Persephone Tsitsipas herself in the flesh! I know you guys missed me, I can hear your tears of joy from here, yeah it smells like sweaty grease. It’s been so long, but I don’t miss you! You might’ve been wondering where I’ve been? The famine you’ve all been having to suffer through because the one and only wasn’t here on TV to suffice it? Well I was in Europe of course working with EAW! Europe holds a special place in my heart, speaking of did you know I’m from Greece? Yeah Greece a place of royalty for sure. Did you know research shows people from Greece are very exotic, making me a special breed out of everyone else here. You could say I’m, ehm… FLAWLESS! Heh I’ve been saving that one for a while.

(The crowd could not be more confused as Persephone chuckles for a moment at her own remark with a smile before looking back at the camera and slightly shaking her head with a smirk. She slightly frowns for a moment as the cameraman seems to try to signal for something before she realizes)

Persephone Tsitsipas: Oh this is an interview? Well I don’t know what I was trying to do was much better than whatever you had planned anyways, I could’ve interviewed the glam squad tho… alright fine whatever. Who do I have to interview? Shawn… who? Shawn Mendes? OH MY GAWD- oh, Shawn Sta…urg.. ghis? Sturgis? Oh well please welcome coming to my beautiful presence! Shawn whatever his last name is!

(Shawn walks into cheers from the crowd which completely breaks the silence. Shawn, with a disgruntled look on his face begins to shake his head ignoring Persephone’s remark. He doesn’t even take a glance at her as he looks elsewhere with a straight face, he seems less annoyed by Persephone yet looking with a face of determination more than anything. Persephone takes a moment to take her eyes off the camera and looks at Shawn as her smile turns quickly to a face of disgust)

Persephone Tsitsipas: My gawd… you’re ugly! What is this facepaint Post Malone, are you good? Did you think this was Emo Nite because I think you’re at the wrong place. Are you a time traveler who thought he was on the day of Halloween? Whatever it is you don’t look remotely close to fabulous like me. I think I need to lend you my makeup palette buddy, free of charge look how generous I am. I should give you the… oh yeah the Frozen 2 palette, that’s to die for. You’ll look like a Disney princess in no time and that’s better than… well whatever the hell you attempted to dress up like, Marilyn Manson.

Shawn Sturgis: Shut up and do your job please.

(Sturgis is very blunt and he clearly has no time or patience for Persephone.)

Persephone Tsitsipas: Ok ok… some people don’t appreciate or deserve respect, they tell you to smile and you do and they dont give anything back… Oh well, let’s talk about the Ultimate Opportunity Match that you have at the free-per-view Shock Value. I will automatically be there to boost ratings but apparently corporate told me this isn’t all about me, so how about you? What about what do you think is the Ultimate Opportunity per say?

Shawn Sturgis: If I remember correctly and we go back to Bloodsport, I’ll remember very vividly the fact that it garners a title opportunity, if not something prestigious, even to the naked eye. I don’t worry about the opportunity rather about winning first then saving my stomach for the desert. I’m looking forward to this. I proved my worth at King of Elite, becoming the bright red rose in a garden full of shrubs, now I cash in that long awaited check, to prosperity. So whatever hides in the shadows waiting to come out when I take the Ultimate Opportunity into the hands of the rightful guardian, me. It’ll lead me to success, the success that I need, and the success that I want.

Persephone Tsitsipas: What if your opponents have anything to say about it? Wait who are this homeless man’s opponents… oh Grizzly Bear Rocco and Alun Wyn Jones? Ewwww… I mean I know there’s people like you but that Rocco dude, look at how morbidly obese he is! He’s so ugly and that head tattoo just makes me want to gag! Like seriously where is his bear pact to take him back to their cave because that’s where he belongs not even remotely in the same area as me, even better how about a abort-

Shawn Sturgis (rolling his eyes): Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Rocco is an interesting fable when it comes to the world we all embrace that is wrestling. We all have common goals and goals that correlate with one another, he’s keen on saying he’s here for the payday he gains at the end. Whatever the opportunity opens the vines up to, the winner will surely be guaranteed a title shot some point in the future, that’s right up the big guys alley, he’s business oriented and it’s something he’d want to win. It’ll be a challenge but I’ll make sure I’m the one that cuts the dragon’s head. The gain I will get at the end will amount to it, just me getting the job done.

(The camera focuses back in on Persephone after Shawn is finished speaking who clearly looks bored and on the verge of sleeping as she gives a yawn breaking Shawn out of his trance of speaking before he can say anything else. Shawn is obviously annoyed as Persephone continues to speak realizing the attention is on her.)

Persephone Tsitsipas: Isn’t this match a triple threat or something?

Shawn Sturgis: Yes, Alun Wyn Jones-

Persephone Tsitsipas: Ewwwww… another one! As if one ugly beast wasn’t enough look at him. He’s hairy, and super gross! Is he a hobo that EAW took off the streets? Man they hire everyone at this point. He looks like a crackhead if I knew one, plays the part as well. I mean I’m not a germaphobe but…

(Shawn once again ignores Persephone, he interrupts her and begins to speak)

Shawn Sturgis: Alun is a talented individual, someone who has gained knowledge and skill of the game over the course of time and that’s evident. He’s very, very skilled and he plans to show that by winning. You see, that’s the thing we all have; motives to strive for the goal at hand. We all want to win, just a matter of who’s going to pull it off. Alun has it all down I’ll say that right now, but the undying need to see myself succeed has strengthened my work ethic more than ever. The evergreen forest thrives with life and that’s when I strike. I’m not letting them win, because this is my win, more than anything.

(Shawn thinks for a moment before looking at the camera again keeping a blank expression)

Shawn Sturgis: But I’d like to see how they handle the everlasting pain that comes with the fact this match is being billed as a Lightshow Match. How do they handle themselves? They’re simply pure strikers of the game, nothing more. I’ve been here long enough to know this is unforgiving… I’ve embraced it more than ever. This is a match of speciality, like always, I never disappoint.

(Shawn looks over the Persephone hoping she’d ask a question but Persephone has dozed off, she wasn’t even listening to Shawn speaking. At this point Shawn could care less as he gave a heavy sigh, this was clearly not making him happy in any way.. She quickly realizes and comes back pretending nothing happened acting like she heard everything)

Persephone Tsitsipas: Oh, yeah sure whatever. I don’t really care who wins either way, is this thing over? Good, I’m Persephone blah blah the one and only blah blah the best blah blah, see you never!

(Persephone keeps a pearly white smile on her face as Shawn is puzzled at the situation. The camera rolls for a few minutes before it fades to the ringside area.)

(Rich and James are head talking in the background.)

James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage, Ladies and Gentlemen. Coming up next we have a high octane match against two formidable Elitists: the new blood Alun Wyn Jones goes one on one against Jesse Barlow! What’s gonna happen between these two?

Rich Russillo: Well we are about to find out. Alun Wyn Jones has Shock Value in his sight and he is ready to keep his momentum going after that shocking match against Joe Rocco from last week! Jesse Barlow is looking to gain some momentum of his own and send a retaliatory message to Woogieman after what transpired earlier tonight.

(“The Path” by Senses Fail blasts through the speakers as Jesse Barlow makes his entrance. Hannah doesn’t come out with him.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Hoboken, New Jersey! Weighing in at 210 pounds… he is The Virtuous… JESSE BARLOW!!!

Rich Russillo: You never know what to expect from someone as unpredictable as Jesse Barlow… Tonight Alun Wyn Jones better be ready for anything!

(The crowd is booing heavily as Barlow enters the ring. His theme song fades)

(“Mother” by Idles blasts throughout the arena as Alun Wyn Jones appears on stage, warmly welcomed by the crowd)

Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… from Caerphilly South Wales… weighing in at 212 pounds… he is the Welsh Dragon.. ALUN WYN JONES!

Rich Russillo: I’m surprised Jones is even able to breathe after what happened last week in that insane one on one match against Joe Rocco. He was blasted through the announce table and literally every single person in the arena was fearing for his life!

James Peters: Listen The Welsh Dragon is a real fighter, a true Elitist. Tonight he’s going to prove just that! Jesse Barlow is in for a lot of trouble!

(Alun’s theme fades out as the match is about to begin)

(DING DING DING)

James Peters: Here we go! The match has just started! The two Elitists are ready to go at it and… nevermind! Jesse Barlow just left the ring! Alun Wyn Jones looks on as his opponent decided he wants none of that! Jesse Barlow playing mind games at ring side, taking his time and possibly getting under his opponent’s skin.

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow is an established name on Voltage, he can do whatever he wants whenever he wants. And right now he feels like having a little warm up at ringside before going at it inside the squared circle! Ain’t nothing wrong with that!

James Peters: The referee is doing what he has to do and is starting to count to ten. The fans are booing as Alun Wyn Jones is pacing back and forth in the ring, waiting for his opponent. Nevermind! Jones has had enough! He just slid out the ring underneath the bottom rope! He is now chasing down Jesse Barlow who is running away from him! Jesse Barlow circles the ring as Jones is right behind him! Barlow is now back inside, so is Jones…. Cheapshot by Jesse Barlow! He got Jones as he was getting back inside the ring! Smart play by Jesse Barlow!

Rich Russillo: I told you! Jesse Barlow is fearless! He was just playing mind games with his opponent and it worked! He now has full control of the match as Jones is stunned! Jesse Barlow with a stiff slap to the face! He picks up Jones… SNAPMARE!!! Wait for it!! DROPKICK!!! Right at the back of the head! Jesse Barlow got all of it!

James Peters: No pin attempt, not yet at least. The crowd is mad! Jesse Barlow is just toying with Alun Wyn Jones here… A stiff stomp to the head! And another one! A wicked laugh from Barlow as Jones is gasping for air down on the mat… Barlow is now taunting the crowd!!! This guy… he simply has no Fs to give.

Rich Russillo: Jones is up! He charges in! Jesse Barlow turns around just in time, ducks underneath! Jones whiffs the clothesline, bounces off the ropes… GERMAN SUPLEX!!! GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE REBOUND!!! He got all of that! Quick pin attempt!

ONEEEE

TWOOOOOO

James Peters: Jones kicks out with ease! It’s not over yet… Jesse Barlow is right on top of him though and locks him in a tight headlock, right in the middle of the ring! The crowd firmly behind Alun Wyn Jones as he is fighting to escape the hold! Jones is now back to his feet, but Jesse Barlow hasn’t released the hold yet… a stiff elbow to the chest of Barlow! That wasn’t very effective! Barlow has the headlock still locked in! Another elbow! Yes! This time Jesse has to let go!

Rich Russillo: Jones finally managed to get some separation!!! He charges in! JAWBREAKER!!! GOT HIM!!! Jess Barlow drops to the mat! The Jawbreaker connects! Now Jones is catching his breath… Jesse Barlow is checking his teeth and making sure he still has all of them! Jones is back at him… Goes for German Suplex… Welsh Suplex I should say! Nope! Jesse Barlow lands on his feet! ABOLISHER!!! SPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE!!! COVER!!!

ONEEEE

TWOOOOOO

TH—

James Peters: Kickout! Kickout by Alun Wyn Jones who is still in this match! There’s no quit in him! Wait! What does Jesse Barlow have in mind now? He’s climbing to the top turnbuckle… is he going for the 650 Splash? The Fear of God?! Are we going to see it?

Rich Russillo: I’m not sure, James! Jones is stunned on the mat but it might be too early for such a high risk maneuver! Jesse Barlow on the top turnbuckle… he’s going for it! FEAR OF G… NO! JONES CAUGHT HIM IN MID AIR! JONES JUST HIT HIS BREAD OF HEAVEN IN MID AIR!!! BARLOW HITS THE CANVAS HARD OFF THE SPINEBUSTER!!!

James Peters: The Fear of God reversed into the Bread of Heaven… what the heck?! Jones with the cover!

ONEEEE

TWOOOOOO

THR—

Rich Russillo: NOOOO! Jesse Barlow kicks out yet again! What did we just see?! I can’t believe this! Jones and Barlow pulling out all the stops just to get this fat W here tonight on Voltage! Alun Wyn Jones now has momentum by his side… Jesse is on his knees…

James Peters: Stiff shot to the face of Barlow! And another one yet again! Jones is just unloading on Barlow! The Caroline Street Massacre! SNAP DD— NO! Barlow reversed! He pushes Jones away… REPENT!!! Barlow just hit Jones with a stiff punch of his own!!!

Rich Russillo: These guys are so evenly matched… Neither one of the two is going to give an inch tonight! Incredible action we’ve seen up until now and it can still go either way! Who is going to bring this one home?!

James Peters: Jesse Barlow has the upper hand now and he’s trying to make the most of it. He’s stalking Jones, is he going for Nevermore? Jesse Barlow charges in, Jones got out of the way just in time! He avoided the knee strike! Jones now… TORNADO DDT OFF THE REBOUND!

Rich Russillo: Jones got all of that! Barlow is done for good! Alun Wyn Jones has to end this right here right now! Jones is trying to lock Barlow in the LeBell lock! He calls it Design for life! Barlow is fighting back though! He knows his end is approaching! He has to do something… YES! Jesse Barlow with veteran instinct managed to get his foot on the rope just in time! The referee is now separating the two… BARLOW WITH THE EYE RAKE! The referee didn’t see it! He was trying to separate them!

James Peters: Jones is now blinded in the middle of the ring… Jesse Barlow has him right where he wants him! Jesse charges in! NEVERMORE!!!!! HE GOT HIM!!! IT’S OVER!!! Cover!!!

ONEEEE

TWOOOOOO

THREEEEEE——

James Peters: No! He kicked out! Alun Wyn Jones kicked out of the Nevermore! The entire arena is in shock and so is Jesse Barlow! WAIT! BARLOW IMMEDIATELY LOCKS HIM IN THE FINAL VERDICT!!! THE HELL’S GATE!!!

Rich Russillo: The submission hold is locked in tight! But look at Jones! He is still out from the Nevermore! His eyes are closed! I don’t think he even knows where he is right now! The referee has to stop this before he gets seriously hurt! Alun has a ‘Unique Opportunity’ match coming up at Shock Value!

James Peters: The referee checks on Alun Wyn Jones… and yes! He has to call for the bell! The match is over!

(DING DING DING)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen here is your winner! JESSE BARLOW!!!

James Peters: The fans are not happy! Not one bit! They are letting them hear it! Alun Wyn Jones somehow found the strength to kick out the Nevermore but that Kickout took everything out of him! Jesse Barlow saw the opening and immediately tapped him out without giving him a chance to get back in the fight! And let’s not forget the eye rake…

Rich Russillo: Oh will you stop! Jesse Barlow just showed us why he is a formidable competitor and that everyone should fear him! He’s crafty and resourceful… He always finds a way to win! The Woogieman is going to have his hands full with Jesse come Shock Value, and no doubt Woogie just watched this entire match.

(Voltage fades to the backstage area.)

(The scene reopens inside the lockerroom of the Universal Women’s Champion, Raven Roberts. In a week’s time, Raven will be marrying the love of her life, Rex McAllister. She’s clearly excited as the wedding gets closer and closer, and she takes a look at the beautifully wrapped gifts she has brought to the arena with her. This would be the only time Raven got a chance to see all of her wedding party before the rehearsal next Friday, including Shayna who had made the trip to Salt Lake City.)

(The rest of Raven’s bridesmaids were already in the lockerroom as well. The camera picked up on the chit chat between Consuela Rose Ava, Ms. Extreme, Andrea Valentine, and Shayna. Ms. Extreme seems especially animated having taken out Lars Grier and Dr. Bethany Blue along with Terry earlier in the evening. After a few seconds have passed, Raven turns to her friends and gives them a sincere smile.)

Raven Roberts: I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much it means to me to have you here today, and more importantly, by my side next weekend as I get married. This season has been an absolute rollercoaster, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I never thought I would be the one forming friendships with you and doing the things we have done together as a team. I’m thankful, and I’m grateful, and I wanted each of you to have something from me to show my appreciation.

Ms. Extreme: PRESENTS! YES!

Consuela Rose Ava: Calm down, you sound like Chloe. By the way, her dress is absolutely adorable! She is going to the most precious flower girl.

Ms. Extreme: Are you bringing Terry as your date, Consuela? :troll:

Consuela Rose Ava: For the last time! He was just being a concerned friend!

Andrea Valentine: Riiiiiiiight. That’s why your face turns that pretty shade of pink whenever his name is mentioned.

(Raven passes out the gifts and then turns back to the table. She grabs a different box and hands it to Shayna.)

Raven Roberts: And what can I say to you that I haven’t already? Without you, none of this would have ever been possible. I owe everything to you, Shayna. I truly do.

Shayna Jackson: Something tells me that you would have succeeded whether you met me or not. That’s the type of drive you have.

(Shayna smiles and then looks back at the other girls. They nod their head, almost as if urging Shayna on. The mother-to-be sets her gift down and clasps her hands in front of her.)

Shayna Jackson: I speak for all of us when I say that you didn’t have to get us anything. Truly Raven, we’re here for you because we love you and support you, and we want you and Rex to be so incredibly happy together. The four of us had a conversation earlier in the week and we actually want to present you with a few gifts.

(Raven looks surprised.)

Raven Roberts: You guys didn’t have to get me anything at all.

Ms. Extreme: You’re right, we didn’t. But we wanted to.

Consuela Rose Ava: Besides, you’ll love all of these things.

Andrea Valentine: That’s right. We wanted to make sure that we followed tradition, and that you had something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

(Shayna holds out her gift and a speechless Raven takes it from her and begins unwrapping it. Raven gasps when she withdraws a beautiful antique pearl bracelet.)

Raven Roberts: This is so beautiful…

Shayna Jackson: I thought long and hard about this. This bracelet belonged to my great great grandmother and it was gifted her to by the man she was in love with, but wasn’t allowed to be with. I’ll save that story for another day, but it’s been passed down the line of my family and I couldn’t think of a better person to hand it over too. This is your something old, Raven, and before you reject it and tell me to save it for my own child, let me say this. In a lot of ways, you are like a daughter to me. I’ve seen you grow up before my eyes and become the woman you are today. It hasn’t been easy. It hasn’t always been fun. There have been times when I’ve wanted to walk away from you, but I just can’t do that. I love you and I’m so proud of you.

(Raven is caught extremely off guard. Tears have filled her eyes and naturally Shayna embraces her former student turned friend. After a moment, they break a part and Raven quickly dries her eyes.)

Raven Roberts: Thank you.

(Raven takes another look at the necklace and gently sits it back in the velvet box it came in. Ms. Extreme passes Raven the next gift. It’s a decent sized box and Raven sits it down and starts opening it. Seconds pass. Wrapping paper and tissue paper fly. Then Raven pulls out the most Camille gift ever. Ms. Extreme looks extremely proud of herself as Raven holds up a brand new leather jacket that has ‘Mrs. McAllister’ written across the back of it.)

Ms. Extreme: I figure it’ll be cold as fuck in Oklahoma City, so what better gift than this? A brand NEW leather jacket :wow:!!!

(It was a simple explanation, and an extremely thoughtful gesture from someone who wasn’t really known for her emotions. That’s not lost on Raven, because she knows Ms. Extreme doesn’t let people into her world very often. She hugs the jacket to her chest and gives the Interwire Champion a big grin.)

Raven Roberts: This is absolutely perfect. Thank you, Camille.

(Ms. Extreme beams. Andrea, Raven’s opponent for later on tonight, hands over her gift next. Raven opens it up and pulls out a thick, weathered Bible that has several bookmarks in it.)

Raven Roberts: Ooooh! Is this what I think it is?

Andrea Valentine (nodding): It is my father’s. Since he isn’t able to officiate the ceremony like it was originally planned due to the change of date, he sent his Bible to me and marked several scriptures for you and Rex to read if you decide too.

(This touched Raven. Andrea was one of the more private Elitists, even while being a cast member on Total Vixens, but she had let Raven in, trusted her, and letting her get to know her. The two were close, and no match for bragging rights was going to change that. It was a true friendship, and that’s how it was for Raven and each member of the Beating Hearts. Raven ran her manicured fingers over the worn leather.)

Raven Roberts: I can’t wait to share these with Rex.

Consuela Rose Ava: And finally, something blue.

(Raven sat the Bible down and took the small box Consuela was holding out. She opened it up and held up a stunning broach that had been handcrafted to resemble the bouquet of flowers that Raven will be carrying for her wedding; white roses mixed with blue orchids and there’s a single, jeweled red rose in the center. It was the most fitting gift from someone who calls herself ‘The Perfectionist’. The attention to detail of the broach, and how beautiful it was, was vintage Consuela, and she flashes Raven a smile.)

Consuela Rose Ava: You can wear it with your rehearsal dinner outfit. I hope you like it. I know a jeweler in Los Angeles who put it together based off the picture of your bouquet.

(Raven can’t help it. She lets her emotions go. Everyone comes together to embrace the bride-to-be, and finally they break apart. It’s Shayna who wipes Raven’s tears away, and gives her an extra squeeze.)

Shayna Jackson: Now, let’s open our gifts.

(The girls laugh and begin tearing open their gifts, just enjoying their time with one another. With that, Voltage fades to a commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Red Robin.)

(Voltage returns and Bella smiles into the camera.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!

( ‘Thunderstruck’ by ACDC blasts through the speakers to an ear-deafening pop as Korey Gaines makes his way down towards the ring. )

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, weighing in at 170 pounds.. HE IS THE AERRRIALLL WONDER… KORRRREEEYYYY GAIIIIINNNNNNNESSSSSS!!

James Peters: Korey Gaines is riding off a career-defining performance against a former world champion and he has a great opportunity to rectify the loss against Sierra Bradford. If you’ve kept your eye on Korey for a while now, he’s starting to show an increasingly aggressive and concentrated side of himself. This kind of tendency is what he’s been missing and hopefully tonight, it leads him to success.

( As Korey Gaines prepares in his designated corner, ‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake hits through the speakers to an earthquake reaction from the crowd. Sierra rises from the gorilla position with a concentrated look on her face before marching down the aisle. )

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From San Jose, California, weighing in at 141 pounds… SIIIIEEEERRRRAAA BRAAADDDFOOOOOORRRDDDDD!!!!

Rich Russillo: I am so excited to see what these two polarizing athletes will put on the line tonight. Get your cameras out because this is surely going to result in an instant classic for the years to come. Sierra Bradford appears more prepared than ever as we are seconds away from seeing The Aerial Wonder versus The Multiversal Constant.

( DING! DING! DING! )

Rich Russillo: This match is underway as we are about to see two similar styles combine here in the Vivint Smart Home Arena. Both elitists Rendez-Vous in the center of the ring as Gaines brings his hand out towards his opponent. He very well knows he’s going to get a hell out of a war out of Sierra Bradford. She slowly shakes his hand with a confident smirk on her face before they begin to circle around the ring and initiate in a collar-and-elbow tie-up.

James Peters: Gaines implements his weight advantage, using his power to immediately transition it into a wrist lock. Bradford twists his arm, vaulting into the canvas, kipping-up, smacking his wrist away and taking him down into a grounded headlock. What an escape as Gaines fights through the pain, gets a footing, and wrestles her into the ropes. Bradford maneuvers over his shoulders and shoots forward for a spinning arm drag.

Rich Russillo: Gaines holds onto her, lifting her back up and whipping Bradford back into the ropes. BRADFORD LEAPS UP AND FLOORS KOREY GAINES WITH A HURRICANRANA! HOWEVER, GAINES MANAGES TO LAND RIGHT ONTO HIS FEET, EFFORTLESSLY SHOWCASING HIS ATHLETIC ABILITY. He smiles at her and shakes his head before ducking a clothesline attempt and spinning around for a tilt-a-whirl headscissors! AND BRADFORD CARTWHEELS SAFELY ONTO HER FEET!

James Peters: Both competitors have done their research and have been one step ahead of each other at the onset of this match-up. GAINES RUSHES TOWARDS BRADFORD! SHE EVADES THE FOREARM, GOES AROUND AND SHOVES HIM INTO THE ROPES. GAINES COMES OFF THE ROPES AS BRADFORD RUNS PAST HIM!! SIERRA BRADFORD WITH A PRECISION DROPKICK THAT SENDS GAINES SCRAMBLING INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES!

Rich Russillo: Sierra Bradford applies more force on the gas pedal as she swings forward! RUNNING LARIAT! GAINES DUCKS AND SHATTERS HER JAW WITH A DISCUS FOREARM SMASH. Sierra reels into the ropes, ricocheting back into Gaines while he starts to rotate around! BRADFORD JUMPS UP AND CATCHES HIS LEG INTO A HEEL HOOK! GAINES SET UP FOR THE DETONATION KICK, BUT BRADFORD WAS ONE STEP AHEAD AS SHE HAS HIM TRAPPED IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!

James Peters: He gets his arm in the bottom rope as the referee forces her to break up the hold. Bradford steps a few steps away while Gaines gets back up to his feet. Gaines rolls into the ground, evading the clothesline as he flips backwards with a head scissors! Bradford grabs one of his feet and goes for an ankle lock. Gaines quickly turns and flips Bradford onto her back. He stands up and blasts Sierra with a spinning heel kick to the chest, sending her into the corner as he begins to light her up with fists! Southpaw offence from Gaines as he comes off the corner! AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE ACROSS THE FA-

Rich Russillo: SIERRA DUCKS AND STUNS KOREY GAINES IN THE CORNER WITH A STEP-UP ENZIGURI!! KOREY IS STAGGERED AS SIERRA SPRINTS TOWARDS THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND BACK!! Korey crouches and lifts Sierra up over his shoulders. Sierra uses her legs to trap his head in a leg scissors before setting off the ropes! SHE SPINS HIM AROUND AND SPIKES HIM WITH A FLIP PILEDRIVER!! WHAT A COUNTER AS SHE HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE COVER!

ONE.. TWO….

James Peters: KICK-OUT BY GAINES! Sierra Bradford uses the rope to get up to her feet as she hooks his tights and picks him up for a fisherman suplex!

GAINES IS ROCKED AS BRADFORD SPINS AROUND FOR A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!! GAINES GRABS HER ARM AND PULLS HER DOWN INTO AN ARMBAR!!

Rich Russillo: Sierra, however, immediately gets her feet up and positions herself above him. Gaines has transitioned it into a triangle choke! Bradford uses her strength and lifts her off the ground! She carries him towards the ropes, placing his head beneath the middle rope, AND STUNNING HIM ON THE ROPES! She made his throat go unprotected crashing into the ropes, releasing the hold as she gets up to her feet. Sierra takes a couple of seconds to catch her breath before picking Gaines up! AND DRIVING HIM DOWN WITH A BRIDGING FISHERMAN SUPLEX!!

ONE… TWO…

James Peters: GAINES POPS HIS SHOULDER UP! Sierra crouches in the corner while Gaines rises up to his feet! SIERRA SHOOTS OFF THE CORNER!!! SEEEKING MISSSSILLLLLEEE!!! NO!! GAINES EXPLODES ONTO BRADFORD WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!! WHAT A STOMP AS HE QUICKLY ROLLS HER UP!

Rich Russillo: SIERRA KICKS-OUT! Just like that, Korey Gaines has completely changed the complexion of this contest as he rolls beneath the bottom rope onto the apron. Sierra is stunned while Gaines rolls through the middle rope! AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A FACEBUST- SIERRA WITH A JUMPING KNEE TO THE FACE OUT OF NOWHERE!! A devastating knee strike as Gaines is staggered! SHE JUMPS ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF!!

GAINES FLIPS ONTO HIS FEET FROM THE SLEEPER SUPLEX, JUMPS UP AND LANDS A SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! HE ROLLS INTO THE GROUND, LEAPS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND SOARS ONTO SIERRA WITH A BEAUTIFUL MOONSAULT!! COVER!

ONE… TWO… T-

James Peters: BRADFORD POPS HER SHOULDER OFF THE MAT ONCE AGAIN! Korey has had Sierra’s number for a while now in this match as he now whips her through those ropes. She splatters onto the ringside floor as she may be in the landing zone! KOREY RUNS THE ROPES AND SETS OFF INTO THE AIR!! TOPPPPEEEE CONNN HILLO!!!!

Rich Russillo: NOBODY’S HOME AS KOREY GAINES LANDS UNPROTECTED INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!! HE MAY HAVE BROKEN HIS BACK AS SIERRA IS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! AND SOARS ONTO KOREY GAINES WITH A FROG SPLASH INTO THE HEART AT RINGSIDE!! SHE GETS HIM BACK INTO THE RING NOW. KOREY HAS NO IDEA WHAT CITY HE IS IN AS SIERRA COMES RUNNING IN FROM THE CORNER!!

James Peters: KICK-OUT! Gaines was so close to securing the win as he gingerly rises up to his feet. He pulls Bradford up to her feet and clenches her tights! SUPLEX!! Bradford drives her knees into the crown, escaping the hold as she hoists Gaines up for a suplex of her own. Gaines flips over her shoulders, turning her around and swinging forward. CLOTHESLINE! Bradford ducks and connects with a pele kick! Gaines struggles to maintain his foundation as Bradford gets up and picks him up for a powerbomb! Gaines flips her over onto her feet and turns around while she rebounds back into him. BRADFORD SPINS AROUND HIS BODY! TILT-A-WHIRLLLLL- GAINES SHOVES HER AWAY AND CLOCKS HER WITH A BICYCLE KICK!!

Rich Russillo: HE SPINS AROUND FOR A DISCUS FOREARM! BRADFORD BLOCKS IT! SHE JUMPS DOWN AND SWEEPS HIS LEGS. KOREY JUMPS OVER AND DECKS HER WITH AN AXE KICK. HE THEN SPINS AROUND ONCE AGAIN!! SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! NO!!! BRADFORD WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK INTERCEPTION AS KOREY COMES OFF THE ROPES!! AND CONNECTS WITH THE DETONATION KICK!! HE COLLAPSES ONTO BRADFORD AS THE REFEREE COUNTS IT!

THE SUNSET FLIP DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER CONNECTS AS SHE HOOK BOTH LEGS!! COVER!

ONE… TWO…. THREE!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( ‘Hey Superstar’ by Madima Lake hits to an astounding reaction from the audience. An exhausted Sierra Bradford rolls off Korey and takes a moment to recuperate.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… SIERRRRRAAAA BRAADDDDFOOOOORDDDD

James Peters: Sierra Bradford with a resounding victory over Korey Gaines here in a fantastic contest! Both individuals defined the art of professional wrestling on this episode Voltage and I was blown away from the collective performance of these two. Two athletic warriors went pound-for-pound and the individual who comes out on top is Sierra Bradford…

Rich Russillo: Everyone in the audience is definitely going to remember this match for the years to come. We anticipated for Bradford and Gaines to serve up a high-level contest in the middle of the Voltage squared circle, and boy, did they deliver. Congratulations to Sierra Bradford! She gains a ton of momentum heading into her dream match with Consuela Rose Ava next week at Shock Value!

(Sierra rolls out of the ring and makes her way up the ramp, while Korey is left in the ring wondering how it all went wrong.)

(The camera fades backstage where Rex McAllister is seen walking to Matt Daniels’ office, clearly having something he wanted to speak to him about. Rex knocks on the door and waits for a response. Soon enough, Daniels answers.)

Matt Daniels: Who is it?

Rex McAllister: It’s Rex, you got a moment?

(A few moments later the door opens, revealing Matt Daniels. Matt knew that Rex wanted to speak to him, but he didn’t know what it was he needed, so he was eager to get the chance to talk to him.)

Matt Daniels: Rex! Please, come in.

(The two enter the office and sit down as Daniels begins to speak, wondering how Rex was feeling seeing his need to talk to him.)

Matt Daniels: Rex, how’re you feeling? Is everything alright?

Rex McAllister: Me? I’m doing pretty good, thanks. How are you?

Matt Daniels: Well, I’m managing. It’s never easy being in charge of a show, especially seeing some of the types of people we have here. Anyways your wedding’s coming up soon, are you feeling nervous or anything?

Rex McAllister: Honestly, no. I’m not nervous. I’m actually excited. I get to marry the love of my life, things are going pretty well for me right now. Raven, she means so much to me, to be honest I don’t think I really knew true happiness existed until she came along and threw my life into chaos, in the best possible way. I can’t wait for it. Thank you by the way, for letting us have our wedding at Shock Value. I truly appreciate it. I don’t know what we would’ve done if you hadn’t let us hold our wedding here.

Matt Daniels: Don’t sweat it man, it’s no problem. After all, it’s the least I could do for you. Besides, after everything else going down at Shock Value, I think a wedding would be a great way to send the fans home happy.

Rex McAllister: You’ve got a point. Looking at the confirmed Shock Value matches, maybe a wedding is the right way to send the fans home.

Matt Daniels: It’s almost ironic to me, what will more than likely be one of our most violent shows in the year will be headlined by a wedding.

Rex McAllister: Yeah, and good luck to all those competing. I can’t even begin to imagine how anyone’s going to be able to compete on the Voltage after Shock Value.

Matt Daniels: Well, we’re just gonna have to wait and see what happens. After Bloodsport last year, I think we shouldn’t have to worry too much. So, what brings you here anyway? Do you need something?

(Rex takes a deep breath, as he gains a more serious look on his face.)

Rex McAllister: Well, it’s about Grand Rampage.

Matt Daniels: Grand Rampage?

Rex McAllister: Yeah. With Grand Rampage coming closer and closer, I can’t help but think about how last year went. I was so close to winning the Grand Rampage, just to end up losing to Jamie O’Hara.

Matt Daniels: Well, you were still the runner up. You had a great performance, don’t beat yourself up about it.

Rex McAllister: But a great performance isn’t enough. To this day it doesn’t sit well with me that the only reason I got into that World Heavyweight Championship match at Pain for Pride last year was because of both Impact’s ego and his Gawd Contract. Then even fast forward to the actual match, it was even worse seeing Impact choke out Noah Reigner to win the Championship. I thought I would’ve been able to stop him, I really did. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to, and I went home empty handed. That still sticks with me, as do all my failures in this season. I unfortunately failed to win the EAW Championship at Territorial Invasion thanks to Charlie Marr taking the coward’s way out and low blowing me. Then at Road to Redemption when I could’ve gotten payback, instead I actually went down and fell victim to Charlie. I can’t lie Matt, it’s been a pretty frustrating year. I want to make it back into the Pain for Pride main event again, and I definitely want to become World Champion again. I guess in a way, I want to redeem myself after last year. I don’t even know who the EAW Champion will be by Pain for Pride, but to be honest I don’t care. No matter who I have to face, I want to become Champion.

Matt Daniels: I’m glad you know what you want Rex. I could see why you must be frustrated, but what’s your plan here? Malcolm Jones has already stated that he wants to face whoever wins between Charlie and Andrea at Grand Rampage.

Rex McAllister: Oh, don’t worry. I don’t want to be added to that match or anything. Instead, I want to take the first step into getting to the point I was last year, and enter the Grand Rampage. Only this time, I’m going to win, and at Pain for Pride I’m going to become EAW Champion for the second time. I applaud Jamie O’Hara for being able to take me out last year so he could get the win, but that won’t happen to me again. This time I’ll go the distance whether I’m placed at the number one or the number thirty spot. I may have lost last year, but my spirit isn’t broken just yet. Wasn’t the first time I’ve lost and it probably won’t be the last. Jamie was the better man last year, but Matt if you give me this opportunity, I’ll be the best this year.

Matt Daniels: Wow. You know what, that’s honestly a great idea Rex. I definitely see what you’re saying and I believe in you, but what about the Unified Tag Team Championships match you earned beating the ILLIONAIRES? Don’t you and Raven still want to go after those titles, or are you guys giving up your opportunity?

Rex McAllister: Woah, we’re not giving up our Tag Title opportunity just yet. Yes, we do still want the Unified Tag Team Championships, don’t worry about that. While we do want to win the Tag Team Championships, I must remind you that me and Raven have always been singles competitors. That means that while it’s always great working with her in Tag Team matches, we’ll always prioritize our singles careers and put them above anything else. She is the Universal Women’s Championship after all, I’d love to try and get some more gold myself. I mean, wouldn’t it be great if we managed to both hold World Champions, and the Unified Tag Team Championships? That’d be great, but of course we can’t accomplish something like that unless I work on getting back to the top.

Matt Daniels: I see. So you’re just holding off on it for now.

Rex McAllister: Precisely. Then of course, Drake King and the Visual Prophet look like they’re going after the Tag Champs first. Constance and Minerva clearly seem occupied with those two, so I might as well do my own thing for now. Don’t worry though. I’m confident that once the time is right, Fire and Ice will cash in our Unified Tag Team Championship opportunity regardless of whoever the Champions are by that time, and I’m sure that once that time comes, we’re going to become Tag Champs. For now though, I’m going to focus on my own thing, just like Raven will be.

Matt Daniels: And of course, that thing is winning the Grand Rampage, correct? Especially after last year, you know it won’t be easy, but after your performance there I can’t doubt you.

Rex McAllister: Thank you, and of course I know it won’t be easy. Not much does come easy in a business like this one, but that’s always been the thrill of it. I’m still confident in my chances of winning this Grand Rampage, because I’m going to push myself past my limits and make sure I win the whole thing. I came so close to headlining Pain for Pride on my own terms just a year ago, but I just barely came up short. This time, I’m going to make things right, but it doesn’t just stop there. When I win the Grand Rampage, I’m going to headline Pain for Pride for the third year , and I’m going to win the EAW Championship, making myself both a two time EAW Champ, and a three time World Champion. I can do this Matt, I just need the opportunity.

Matt Daniels: Well, if you want the opportunity, you’ve got it. Consider yourself entered into the Grand Rampage.

Rex McAllister: Thank you, I won’t let this opportunity go to waste. Twenty-Nine other superstars I have to face off with once again, but I’m ready. That Pain for Pride main event will be mine, trust me.

(Rex leaves the office with a smile on his face as Matt takes some time to think about everything Rex said. He has a smile on his face, clearly trusting and believing in Rex as Voltage fades to break.)

(Commercial break for Botox featuring the women of EAW.)

(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is contested under FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE RULES! And it is for… THE BIG BAK BHAMPIONSHIP!!!

(‘Stabbing In The Dark’ By Ice Nine Kills plays to boos as Komatsu Ogawa slowly makes his way out to the ring taking his time as the crowd is left with suspense dangling on their tongues. Komatsu has a wicked smirk on his face with no good intentions as he pulls at his hair slowly before menacingly making his way to the ring with the crowd left in fear)

Bella Braxton: Introducing the challenger… from Kabukicho, Tokyo, Japan… weighing in at 251 pounds… THE SERPENT KING… KOMATSU OGAWA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Well this is more in Komatsu Ogawa’s field as he heads into a match. A match with no rules always spells trouble for the person across from him, we know his mental thinkings, we know how much damage he could cause in a match where the rulebook is not a need for him.

James Peters: But this might just be testing his luck when it comes to it. He hasn’t been having the best of luck when it comes to deathmatches and whatnot, could he possibly turn it around? And could he possibly win a Bhampionship in the process? In my opinion, I think that’s a double win.

(Komatsu enters the ring as he practically throws himself into his corner as he seethes in anger and gets himself prepared slapping his face multiple times and shaking himself around hyping himself as ‘Stabbing In The Dark’ fades out as well as the boos which turn to more ominous growls. ‘King of The World’ by Porcelain Black then plays to even more boos that are louder than before as Zak Simmons makes his way down to the ring. He pats his Big Bak Bhampionship with a smirk as he makes his way to the ring keeping it raised high in the air as the crowd jeers for him and he practically oozes confidence)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Lexington, Kentucky… weighting in at 245 pounds… HE IS THE BIG BAK BHAMPION… THE MACHINE… ZAK SIMMONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: As for Zak he’s gained a lot more ego when it comes to holding the Big Bak Bhampionship. It’s something he holds with pride and it’s something he can’t let go of. Yet Ogawa has threatened the crown that the man places above his head, could Zak turn this around and could his Bhampion reign live another day?

James Peters: He’s been having a hard time keeping afloat and that’s been obvious. Yet in a bhampionship situation when someone tries to take something you love, it’s game time for ‘The Machine’ as clearly shown. He showed that at King of Elite and I think in my opinion he’ll thrive tonight.

(Zak enters the ring raising the Big Bak Bhampionship up in the air as he slowly climbs up to the top rope embracing the crowd as it blows the roof off this place with boos as it practically drowns his theme out. He jumps off as he circles around before egotistically winking at Ogawa as ‘King of The World’ fades out and the Ref raises the Big Bak Bhampionship in the air before ringing the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: Here we go as this Bhampionship match is underway! Ogawa quickly sliding out of the ring before frankly, even anything can happen in this match. Zak is confused as he gives a nod and rolls out of the ring quickly coming over to confront him before he has anything up his sleeve. BUT OGAWA WITH A KENDO STICK RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF ZAK! Ogawa already throwing weapons into the mix as he pulled out whatever he could find under the ring apron. What is he going to pull out now?!

James Peters: HE HAS A TRASH CAN! Zak quickly runs at Ogawa trying to take him down and gain an advantage from him. BUT OGAWA PUTTING THE TRASH CAN ON TOP OF SIMMONS’ HEAD! Ogawa coming over to our commentary desk and grabbing a chair as he walks back over to Zak who is at a loss of directions trying to pull off the trash can. BUT OGAWA WHACKING THAT STEEL CHAIR ONTO THE TRASH CAN SENDING ZAK DOWN QUICKLY!

Rich Russillo: Smart of Ogawa knowing if he can’t take him on regarding the size advantage the Bhampion has then he has to use everything in his arsenal in order to take him down with relative ease. Zak still slowly getting up as Ogawa grabs him and turns him. But Zak quickly turning the tables as he runs with Ogawa grabbing him by the hair! ZAK RAMMING OGAWA LIKE A BATTERING RAM RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS AND THROWING HIM AROUND LIKE A RAGDOLL! This is where ‘The Machine’ thrives as he slowly begins to bring him up and grab his body. ZAK THROWS OGAWA BACK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A CRACK AS OGAWA QUICKLY CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND!

James Peters: Ogawa slowly crawling away as Zak brings himself up to his feet. Zak grabbing Ogawa by the hair and slowly pulling him up as Ogawa winces in pain as he does so, But Ogawa ramming a back elbow right into the gut of Zak forcing him back! Ogawa gets up to his feet as he quickly turns to face Zak. ZAK WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX TAKING OGAWA RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE MAT AS HE GRABS HIS BACK IN PAIN! Yet Ogawa is still not wasting anytime as he perseveres through and slowly grabs the barricade and pulls himself up. Zak quickly grabbing him as he pulls him back. ZAK RUNNING FULL SPEED AS HE RAMS OGAWA BACK FIRST RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A LOUD SLAM!

Rich Russillo: Ogawa gives a cry of pain as Zak finally walking away from him as he picks up that chair that Ogawa had and used just a few minutes prior as he walks back to him clutching it in his hands. Ogawa has fell to the ground as he crawls and struggles to get to his feet. Zak lifting the chair up at a slow methodical pace taking his time! BUT OGAWA WITH A TABLE AS HE QUICKLY GETS TO HIS FEET AND RAMS INTO ZAK WITH IT BEFORE HE CAN DO ANYTHING! Ogawa was playing possum as it looks like he’s not done with the table just yet as he begins to slowly prop it up as Zak is stunned on the ground.

James Peters: Ogawa moving around the table grabbing Zak and slowly pulling him up to his feet as he begins to pull him over to the table. But Zak with an elbow right to the face of Ogawa sending him back! Ogawa running over to Zak not trying to let go of his advantage. ZAK WITH A SPINEBUSTER! NO! Ogawa barely dodges a bullet as he slips out as it looks like Zak was aiming for the table! Ogawa stumbles backwards as Zak runs towards him. OGAWA WITH A BIG LARIAT TAKING ZAK RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND!

Rich Russillo: Ogawa with a desperate look on his face mingled with exhaustion quickly brings Zak up to his feet and begins to lift him up onto the table. But it looks like Zak is trying to prevent that with closed fist punches right to the head of Ogawa as he stumbles back. Zak with a wicked smirk on his face as he beckons Ogawa to his unknowing and unwilling demise. Ogawa running at Zak!

CRASH!

James Peters: OH MY GAWD! ZAK JUST SLAMMED OGAWA INTO THE TABLE WITH A SPINNING POWERBOMB IM SURE DOING MAJOR DAMAGE TO THE CHALLENGER! Ogawa is shooken up and in pain as I’m sure he didn’t expect that coming. Zak looks at the demise of ‘The Serpent King’ before dropping down. ZAK ATTEMPTING A PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRR-

Rich Russillo: OGAWA KICKS OUT! Zak with furious anger as he slams his fist into the ground multiple times before slowly getting to his feet. He’s shaking his head as he slowly brings Ogawa up shaking his head. POP-UP POWERBOMB! NO! Ogawa slips out at the right moment! Ogawa quickly sliding behind Zak as it’s like a dog chasing his own tail for ‘The Machine’ at this point. BUT OGAWA OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A ROLLUP CATCHING ZAK OFF GUARD!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHH-

James Peters: KICK OUT BY ZAK! That might’ve called for the end of this match as Ogawa is still in pain from the table that Zak slammed him into. But one thing we know is the fact that it’s going to take a lot to take Ogawa down for the count at the very least and in my opinion I think Zak is barely touching the surface of it. Ogawa getting up to his feet as he slowly grabs Zak and drags him up with him as well. BUT ZAK LIFTING HIM OFF HIS FEET AS HE SLAMS HIM ON THE EDGE OF THE BARRICADE Ogawa screams in pain as Zak keeps ahold of him I dont think he’s done! ZAK SLAMS HIM INTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON WITH NO REMORSE ON HIS FACE AS HE SEETHES IN ANGER!

Rich Russillo: Ogawa screaming in pain as he falls to the ground as Zak has had enough. What is he bringing out? A LADDER! Zak propping the ladder up onto the apron and the barricade as he has a smirk as he devises his plan like a mad scientist. He pulls Ogawa up as he grabs him! HE’S GOING FOR THAT HALF AND HALF SUPLEX FINISHER! IF HE SLAMS OGAWA INTO THAT LADDER IT MIGHT SPELL THE END FOR HIM! ZAK WITH THE ELITE ENDING SUPLEX!

James Peters: NO! OGAWA STOPPING ZAK BEFORE HE CAN DO IT AS ZAK IS CONFUSED AT THIS PREDICAMENT AS OGAWA GRABS ZAK QUICKLY NOT TAKING ANY TIME OUT TO WAIT! DON’T DO IT! PLEASE DON’T DO IT OGAWA! OH MY GAWD! WRIST CLUTCH FISHERMAN DRIVER CONNECTS AS OGAWA CRASHES ZAK RIGHT THROUGH THE TABLE! OBSIDIAN FLAME CONNECTS AS ZAK IS PRACTICALLY OUT LIKE A FUCKING LIGHT! OGAWA TRANSITIONING INTO A PIN ATTEMPT! COULD WE BE SEEING A NEW BIG BAK BHAMPION?!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Stabbing in The Dark’ plays up as the crowd pops off their feet at this circumstance. Ogawa gets helped up by the Ref as he’s in shock before slowly giving a scream of victory as he’s handed the Big Bak Bhampion. He clutches it to his chest like it’s his kin as he makes his way around the ring stepping over the brutalized body of Zak Simmons as he takes a nice long victory lap savoring the moment)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… AND NEW BIG BAK BHAMPION! KOMATSU OGAWA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: We’re at a day and age where anything can happen and I did not expect Simmons losing that title tonight. But Ogawa won and imagine this being the first title he’s ever won in EAW, :wow: the prestige and relevancy it garners is beyond our population.

James Peters: Big Bomatsu Bhampionship? No, Big Bgawa Bhampionship? No, but we’re getting there. This is a momentous win for Ogawa as he’s proud of it himself. I would be glad to see what ‘The Serpent King’ has in store for this Bhampionship in the near future, and I hope it’s not feeding the Bhampionship to the snakes! :lupe:

(The last shot is of Ogawa making his way up to the ramp before holding up the Big Bak Bhampionship with a smile on his face prided with accomplishment. Meanwhile the battletorn Zak Simmons is being tended to by the medical team as he doesnt look in the best of shape. Ogawa continues to celebrate his victory as Voltage fades to another break.)

(Commercial break for butter. Not peanut butter. Just butter.)

(Voltage returns, and James and Rich can be heard talking in the background.)

James Peters: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next, we have a bout that is sure to rock the house! Two of Voltages most promising up-and-comers will do battle right here, tonight! It’s ‘“Wildheart” vs “The Sol”, coming up next, Jalyn Garcia faces off against Colby Sol!

Rich Russillo: This is an incredibly promising match, for both the competitors, and the fans. A stylistic masterpiece and fueled by the simple love for competition! As entertaining as bout’s fueled by bad blood are, at the end of the day, we love to see respect between two warriors, leaving their heart and soul in the middle of the ring, for us.

James Peters: Couldn’t have said it any better myself, Rich. As you also mentioned, stylistically, the matches don’t come more diverse than this one! An amateur boxer who’s unforgiving arsenal of strikes and suplexes, against the technical genius of ‘The Wildheart’. Both competitors constantly displaying their improving ring IQ, and athletic prowess, every chance they get! Well folks, I believe we’ve certainly kept you waiting long enough, let’s get this match started!

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONEEEE FALLLLL!!!

(‘Martyr (Waves)’ by Polaris begins to play as ‘Wildheart’ Jalyn Garcia appears on the stage in front of the Voltage crowd.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCCIIINNGGG FIRRRSSST, WRESTLING OUT OF SACRAMENTO, CALIFORRRNIIIAAAAA….WEIGHING IN AT 150lbs….JAAALLLLLYYYYNNNNNN ‘WIILLLDDDHHHEEEARRTTT’ GARRRCCIIIAAAAA!!!!!

James Peters: Jalyn Garcia is back in EAW, with a chip on his shoulder and the highest hopes of reaching new heights in EAW. Garcia has undergone a minefield of obstacles, not only in his initial run in EAW, but since his return. Though he has shown on every occasion that he is well prepared, motivated, and has more desire than ever to prove himself on Voltage. His moveset is a combination of styles and knowledge, not only gained from his experiences in EAW, but from his own creativity and desires. From springboard Tornillo’s to Canadian destroyers, there’s nothing this guy can’t do.

Rich Russillo: Very ture, James. This young man’s athleticism is second to none, but he also utilizes his raw power and natural strength to break down his opponent’s body. Despite numerous trials and tribulations, Jalyn Garcia is back in EAW, and he has set out on a mission to prove to, not only the EAW universe, but to himself, that he is the most talented young prospect in the world of wrestling today!

(“I Am… All of Me” by Crush 40 begins to play as Colby Sol waves his orange flag in front of the EAW audience, high fiving his fans. )

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, WEIGHING IN AT 223lbs…WRESTLING OUT OF OF “THE CITY OF CHAMPIONS”, PITTSBURGH, PENSYLVANIAAAAAAAA…COLLLLBBBYYYYYYY SOOOOLLLLLLLL!!!!!

James Peters: Rich, Colby Sol has also made his way back onto EAW’s soil, and fortunately, he was Voltage bound! Colby takes the utmost pride in getting under his opponents skin, though he is often a respectful warrior once stepping foot inside the squared circle. His trash talk isnt fueled by disdain, but by sheer confidence. Colby Sol reeks of it, it oozes off him like the scent of Kassidy Heart oozes off Charlie Marr!

Rich Russillo: He has also shown why his words hold more significance than meer trash talk, he often backs up his claims in fashion. His brash brawler-esq style, combined with his ameteur boxing background have aideed him in developing a very effective and unorthodox style. If there’s anything we’ve learned from all the styles of wrestling we’ve seen, it’s that constantly learning and developing your own style is crucial to your success as an elitist. It is impossible to jump from point A to point B. Colby Sol knows this, and is now ready, willing, and able to learn and apply his knowledge to his in-ring work!

James Peters: Both men have made their entrances, shaken hands, and are ready to wrestle! Let’s dive into this match!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: Here we go, Colby Sol quickly out of his corner throwing jabs at Jalyn Garcia, who immediately starts to cover up! Colby Sol now targeting the body, nasty jabs and elbows from Sol, who now delivers a SNAP SUPLEX to Jalyn Garcia! This is exactly the start Colby Sol was looking for, beat up Jalyn Garcia from the get go, then impose his will. This is already proving to be a tougher task than most for Garcia tonight, he isn’t faring well against someone of Sol’s style thus far. Sol now allowing garcia back to his feet, as Jalyn is met with a NASTY CHOP from Sol! Colby Sol now attempting to turn this into a neckbreaker….But Garcia escapes, HE LAUNCHES HIMSELF OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND SENDS COLBY SOL FLYING WITH A SPRINGBOARD ARMDRAG! WOW! JALYN GARCIA NOW DELIVERING A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, AND A MASSIVE SATELLITE DDT!!! HE WAS UP IN THE SKIES FOR THAT ONE!! WHAT A SEQUENCE FROM JALYN GARCIA!!

Rich Russillo: This is that athleticism we spoke of, James. Colby Sol was in an ideal position, but in an instant, Garcia turned the tides of the match! Jalyn Garcia lifts Sol from the canvas, looking for a dragon suplex…and he nails it! What strength from J- wait he’s rolled through, looking for ANOTHER DRAGON SUPLEX! AND HE PLANTS HIM, BUT HE ROLLS THROUGH AGAIN, LOOKING FOR THE THIRD DRAGON, TO COMPLETE THE SEQUENCE….JALYN GARCIA DELIVERS A THIRD DRAGON SUPLEX TO COLBY SOL, DRIVING HIS BODY TO THE CANVAS!! WHAT STRENGTH FROM JALYN GARCIA!! HE MAY NOT BE THE BIGGEST, BUT HE HAS SOME OF THE MOST POUND FOR POUND RAW POWER ON THE ROSTER! WHAT A TALENT!

(The audience sends massive applause towards Garcia and begins to chant “WILDHEART! WILDHEART! WILDHEART!”)

Rich Russillo: Garcia is feeding off this audience’s incredible energy, he’s got plenty more tricks up his sleeve, he appears to be looking for one now….Garcia ascending to the top rope, he’s got something special in mind! GARCIA ON THE TOP ROPE, HE’S GONNA FLY! JALY GARCIA ATTEMTPING A- But Sol rolls out of the ring, avoiding any further assault from Garcia.

(The Crowd boo’s, disappointed after waiting in anticipation for another big Wildheart move.)

James Peters: It may not be popular, but it’s quite smart of Colby Sol, he knows once Garcia gets going, he doesn’t stop until he’s triumphant in victory. BUT JALYN GARCIA ISN’T GOING TO OFFER HIM ANY QUARTER, BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES, GARCIA LAUNCHES HIMSELF TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A TRIANGLE MOONSAULT! COLBY SOL AVOIDED IT, BUT GARCIA LANDS ON HIS FEET! GARCIA NOW CHARGING FULL SPEED AHEAD ATTEMPTING ANOTHER JUMPING KNEE STRIKE, COLBY SOL MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND GARCIA NAILS THE RING POST! MY GOD, HTA COULD BE A GAME CHANGER, A KNEE INJURY AT THIS POINT IN THE MATCH COULD BE A NIGHTMARE FOR GARCIA! COLBY SOL WITH ELBOWS TO THE KNEE OF JALYN, RECOGNIZING THE NASTY INJURY! Rolling garcia back into the ring, shouting taunts in the face of Garcia, THEN STICKS HIM WITH THE SHOTGUN! THAT HORRIBLE LARIAT FROM COLBY SOL! JALYN GARCIA MAY HAVE TO ASK THE FRONT ROW FOR HIS TEETH BACK, MY GOD WHAT POWER!

Rich Russillo: SOL NOW GOING FOR THE COVER, TO PUT JALYN GARCIA AWAY!!…. (OOONNEEEEEE….)

(TWWWOOOOOOOOOO…..)

(THHHHHREEEEEEEEEEEEE….)

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! JALYN GARCIA IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS MATCH! JALYN GARCIA STILL HAS A CHANCE! A collective look of relief runs across the faces of the audience, Sol’s face tells a different story however. Colby Sol is stunned that Jalyn Garcia survived ‘The Shotgun’, but he doesn’t have time to remain shocked, he needs to capitalize on the momentum he’s built thus far! Colby now delivers more jabd to the facer, now a cross, and an uppercut! Using that boxing background to his advantage…OH NO….COLBY SOL LOOKS TO BE SETTING UP FOR ‘DIRTY BOXING’ THAT NASTY HEADBUTT THAT HAS ENDED MANY MEN….COLBY ATTEMPTING DIRTY BOXING, BUT GARCIA AVOIDS IT, AND DELIVERS A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF COLBY SOL’S NECK!! WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT, WE’VE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE! WHAT A MOVE FROM GARCIA! HE’S GOT THE MATCH IN HIS HANDS NOW, COLBY SOL’S BEEN DROPPED TO HIS KNEES! JALYN GARCIA DRIES HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A SPIKE RANA! THAT VARIANT DDT! A POISONOUS MOVE FROM GARCIA, WHO’S HEADING UP TO THE SECOND ROPE, WAITING FOR COLBY TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING NOW?!?! WILDHEART COMES OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND DRIVES SOL BACK DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A CANADIAN DESTROYER!!! JALLYNN GARCIA MAY HAVE JUST ENDED IT, SURELY THIS IS IT! HE’S NAILED THE COFFIN SHUT! GARCIA GOES FOR THE PIN!!!…

(ONNEEEE….)

(TWOOOOOO….)

(THRRRRRRREEEEEEEE…)

Rich & James: KICKOUTTTT!!!! IMGLWGNGNQiQNGW!!!!

James Peters: HOW THE HELL DID COLBY SOL ESCAPE!?!? HOW DID HE KICK OUT, HE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE CONSCIOUS, LET ALONE STILL GOING IN THIS CONFLICT! WHAT A WAR BETWEEN THESE TWO! THEY’RE SHOWING US ALL RIGHT NOW WHY VOLTAGE IS THE MOST DOMINANT BRAND! WHY WE HAVE THE MOST ATHLETIC, PERSEVANT, AND PROMISING YOUNG STARS, AND WHY WE ARE THE FUTURE OF EAW! WE ARE VOLTAGE! COLBY SOL IS BACK TO HIS FEET NOW, BOTH MEN BATTERED AND BRUISED, MEET ONCE AGAIN IN THE CENTER OF THE SQUARED CIRCLE! A WHITE HOT STARE FROM BOTH MEN, BURNING HOLES THROUGH THE VERY SOULS OF EACH OTHER, THOUGH THROUGH ALL THAT FEROCITY, IS AN IMMEASURABLE AMOUNT OF RESPECT GAINED FOR EACH OTHER IN THIS MATCH! THE BRAWL IS ON!! BOTH MEN, A STORM OF KICKS AND PUNCHES, THRASHING ELBOWS AND BLOOD STAINING THE CANVAS! GARCIA WITH A MASSIVE KICK TO THE FACE, BUT COLBY SOL RETURNS WITH AN ENZIGURI OF HIS OWN! GARCIA RETURNS OFF THE ROPES WITH A CANDIAN DESTROYER, BUT COLBY SOL GETS BACK AND SCREAMS IN FEROCITY, ON WOBBLY LEGS, WITH A RUNNING KICK TO THE FACE OF GARCIA! THEN SOL FALLS BACK TO CANVAS!!! WOW!! WHAT A SEQUENCE FROM BOTH MEN, THIS IS A CLASSIC! THIS MATCH HAS LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE AND MORE!!! BUT IT’S JALYN GARCIA WHOS BACK TO HIS FEET FIRST, ONE MAN AND ONE MAN ONLY MUST WIN THIS MATCH, WILDHEART THINK’S ITS HIS TIME!

Rich Russillo: GARCIA IS READY TO FINISH THIS MATCH! WILDHEART IS GOING TO LIVE UP TO HIS NAMESAKE, HE IS GOING TO PULL SOMETHING INCREDIBLE OUT OF HIS BAG, WILDHEART’S TIME IS NOW! JALYN GARCIA ASCENDS TO THE TOP ROPE, HE’S IN THE HIGH RED STRIC, THIS SEEMS TO BE WHERE GARCIA FEELS THE MOST COMFORTABLE!! WILDHEART YELLING FOR THE FANS TO GET TO THEIR FEET, HE WANTS TO END THIS BLOCKBUSTER IN STYLE! WILDHEART FLIES DOWN WITH A MASSIVE FROG SPLASH, CONNECTING ON COLBY SOL!!!! HE CALLS THAT NATURAL INSTINCTS!!! BUT WAIT, WHY IS HE NOT COVERING HIM, WHY IS HE NOT GOING FOR THE PIN, HE SURELY HAS THIS MATCH WON!?!? HE’S HEADING BACK UP TO THE TOP, HE WANTS TO PUT THE ICING ON THE CAKE, WILDHEART BACK UP AT THE TOP, HE’S LOOKING FOR A FINISHING MOVE, HE’S LOOKING FOR THE KINGS REGNUM!! THAT INCREDIBLE PHOENIX SPLASH THAT O)ONLY HE CAN DO SO WELL!! WILDHEART TRULY LIVING UP TO HIS NAMESAKE, GOING FOR KINGGGSS REGNUUMMMMM!!!! GARCIA HEADING IN FOR THE COVER!!!!

(ONEEEEEE…)

(TWOOOOOOOO….)

(THRRRRRREEEEEEEE….)

(DING! DING! DING!

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOURRRR WINNNNEERRRR!!!! WILDHEAARTTT JALYNNNNN GARRCCIAAA!!!

James Peters: What a match. What a classic. Both men left it all out there, both men gave it their all. Look at this,Colby slowly getting to his feet, garcia calling for a handshake….Garcia embraces him, what a show of respect between these two, what a night. Congratulations, Jalyn Garcia! Thank you all for watching, we’ll be back soon with another action packed match!

(The camera takes another shot at Jalyn celebrating, before fading to commercial.)

(Commercial break for McCafe Coffee.)

(Voltage returns from break and cuts to pre-recorded video.)

(The scene opens up inside of a beautiful living room. Wealth and luxury are on full display as the camera pans around to take in all the beautiful decor. After giving the members of the EAW Universe a panoramic view of the room, the camera comes to a stop on the entrance of the living room. The former EAW World Champion, Charlie Marr, walks into the scene dressed in a custom black suit with blue shirt that makes his eyes pop. Following behind him is Jordie, and she is dressed in a fitted cocktail dress that matches Charlie’s dress shirt. Charlie takes a seat on the sofa and pats the place next to him, a signal for Jordie to have a seat as well. The couple look at one another smile before Charlie begins to speak into the camera.)

Charlie Marr: The last thing I wanted to do was invite the EAW Universe into the home of my wife and I, but it was either this or show up in that shithole that is Salt Lake City. It goes without saying that I clearly decided to stay home here in London. Besides, this seems like the much safer alternative when you consider that simping piece of garbage Malcolm Jones has free reign to run around my brand, causing all kinds of drama. It makes me sick that Malcolm is going to be the special guest referee for my EAW World Championship rematch with that nasty whore Andrea Valentine, but I’m used to having to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. I’m fine with this match being a handicap match because when I take back my championship, those two idiots won’t have any excuses.

She still isn’t going to fuck you, bruh.

Let me tell you something right now, Malcolm. Fuck me over in this match and I’ll make sure you rot in hell with Pop Sm-

Jordie Marr: BABE!

Charlie Marr: Too soon?

(Jordie bites down on her bottom lip and nods her head. An evil smile crosses Charlie’s face.)

Charlie Marr: Well that’s just to fucking bad because the last I’m ever going to care about is Malcolm Jones’ fragile fucking feelings. Fuck him, and fuck everyone who supports him, and fuck his mother too, which I’m sure I could, to be honest. I bet she’s fuckin’ wild as hell, and has a damn good time whenever she lets her hair down and tries to forget about the fact she has a bastard son to support. Malcolm, you even being involved in this match goes to show you how disgusting your ego is. You have absolutely no reason to be involved in this match and it is a fucking travesty that I’m going to be forced to face you once again come Grand Rampage. We all know that I’m going to beat Andrea at Shock Value, and your jealousy over the fact that I’m better than you is going boil over and cause you to get your ass beat at one of the biggest events of the year. It’s going to be hilarious to see you leave Grand Rampage with your tail tucked between your legs, and your head down. You will finally be forced to admit that you aren’t nearly as good as you think you are, and better yet. You will be forced to admit that Charlie Marr is a much better man. That EAW World Championship belongs around this waist, the same waist that you know your girl dreams about clinging too. You know she wants this dick instead of whatever tootsie roll you be packing, because don’t no bitch ever get over the Charlie Marr experience. Ask Jordie. Ask her how great it feels to be the wife of such a legend.

(Jordie flashes a perfect, demure smile at Charlie and bats her eyes.)

Jordie Marr: I love you so much, daddy.

Charlie Marr: And I love that EAW World Championship. Andrea Valentine is a fucking disgrace. She is everything that’s wrong with professional wrestling today. Every time a talentless whore gets their hands on a championship, the believability of this sport starts to go down. I don’t fucking blame the fans at all for tuning out Voltage. What the fuck does Andrea even bring to the table other than a mediocre set of titties and a flat fucking ass? Dumb cunt. I can’t wait to get inside that Electrified Steel Cage of Death and fry her plastic face. As soon as I rid my show of that useless piece of pussy, Voltage will become a much better place. We need change, and change is coming. I’m getting my championship back and there’s nothing Andrea or Malcolm can do about that. That championship means everything to me. It’s who Charlie Marr is, and that belt desperately needs me holding it. I’m the face of Voltage, the real main eventer, and the savior this company desperately needs. We need an alpha standing front and center, because let’s face it. Drake King is nothing more than a walking, talking vagina himself. We got three bitches holding world championships that belong to men, and while I can’t control what happens on Dynasty and Showdown, I can make sure I get Voltage back to the top where it belongs.

Charlie Marr: Andrea, enjoy your last few days with my championship, because daddy is bringing that baby home. You never deserved it in the first place, and I’ll be damned if I let this title reign of yours go on any longer. When and if you defeat Raven Roberts tonight, perhaps the two of you can feud over the Universal Women’s Championship. That’s a belt more up your alley anyway, and being a mid-carder in the women’s division is exactly where you belong. Maybe you should just go back to being the Specialists Champion, because clearly that is something more fitting for you. Whatever you do after next Saturday doesn’t really matter to be anyway. The only thing that matters is that I’m going to be the world champion again, and my name will go down in the history books as a multiple time world champion. Hold the title close, Andrea, and take a good look at it. After next Saturday, the EAW World Championship is going to be back home with me, which is where it belongs.

(Charlie glares into the camera and motions for the feed to cut. The EAW Universe has been allowed to look into his home enough, and he’s sick of the cameraman.)

(Voltage fades back to ringside for the main event.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following is a CHAMPION VERSUS CHAMPION MATCH, AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…

(‘Mark my Words’ by Dollskin hits and the crowd begins to cheer as Raven Roberts makes her way out to the entrance stage. She has the Universal Women’s Championship around her waist as she glances around the arena at the cheering audience, before making her way down to the ring to face off against one of her own friends and member of the Beating Hearts of Voltage, Andrea Valentine.)

Bella Braxton: Making her way to the ring… Residing in Las Vegas, Nevada… Weighing in at 139 pounds… SHE IS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, RAAAAAAVEEEENNNN RROOOOBBEERRRRTTTSS!!!

James Peters: And here we go, time for the main event! Raven Roberts is making her way to the ring, and guys I am more than ready for this Champion versus Champion match. Raven Roberts has been very impressive as the Universal Women’s Champion ever since she cashed in her Cash in the Vault contract on Kassidy Heart, and since then she’s defended her title multiple times. Tonight she faces one of her friends, but I don’t think their friendship will stop them from tearing the house down tonight.

Rich Russillo: When has being friends ever stopped anyone?

James Peters: Good point.

Rich Russillo: Besides the whole friendship thing, I’m really looking forward to this. These have been two of the best performing superstars we have here on Voltage, and to be honest I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. Anyways, let’s bring out the next Champion!

(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX follows, and the crowd doesn’t even think about stopping their positive reaction. The crowd continues cheering as Andrea Valentine makes her way out to the stage with the EAW Championship on her shoulder. She looks straight towards Raven Roberts with a smile on her face, knowing that the result of this match won’t impact the bond these two have already formed with each other.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent.. From Orlando, Florida… Weighing in at 110 pounds… SHE IS THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION, AAANNDDRRREEEEAAAA VVAAAALLEEENNTTIIIINNEE!!!

James Peters: Andrea Valentine versus Charlie Marr is going to be quite the match at Shock Value, but now’s not the time to worry about that. Before we get to Shock Value, we have Voltage, and it’ll be a nice change of pace seeing Andrea go from facing one of her friends and allies to someone she despises.

Rich Russillo: Andrea scored a huge win at Clash of Kingdoms over Answers World Champion Cameron Ella Ava, now she is in yet another Champion versus Champion match. Can Andrea overcome yet another one of the World Champions in EAW?

James Peters: If she does that, the only one she wouldn’t have beaten yet would be Dynasty’s Drake King.

Rich Russillo: That’d be an interesting match, but back to this one. Raven Roberts is no joke as seen by the fact that she’s defended her Universal Women’s Championship against Unified Tag Team Champion Constance Blevins, former New Breed Champion Jenny Cien, and the final Women’s World Champion Sienna Jade. Tonight could be yet another big win if Andrea isn’t careful.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: The main event is underway, and this crowd is electric! Andrea and Raven are just slowly circling the ring, and they both have grins on their faces! Both of them know that this match is essentially just friendly competition, and this shouldn’t drive a wedge between the two whatsoever. Even so, they both are willing to bring their best in order to win, and if you ask me, I think they’re going to tear the roof off this place! The two competitors now locking up, and it looks like it’s about time for this one to truly begin!

Rich Russillo: Raven is the aggressor here as she gets Andrea into a headlock, but that doesn’t last too long as Valentine runs towards the ropes and bounces off of them to push Raven off, before grabbing Raven by the arm and going behind her for a hammerlock hold, but that doesn’t last too long either as Raven brings her to the ground, and it looks like she’s attempting the Wing Breaker fujiwara armbar, but Andrea quickly drags Raven into a crucifix pin before she’s able to! Raven is able to kick out before the referee could even begin his count, and now both competitors are back on their feet!

James Peters: The crowd is into this one, and I can already see why! These two know each other so well, I honestly can’t pick a side here, there’s just no way I could actually choose a winner. The two now approaching each other once again, and this time it’s Andrea with the headlock! Raven attempts the same strategy Andrea went with and pushes her into the ropes, but Andrea pulls Raven in for a grounded headlock! Andrea trying to keep Raven in the headlock- but Raven manages to wrap her legs around Andrea’s head to get out of it!

Rich Russillo: Andrea is easily able to kip up to her feet and that allows her to escape the hold Raven was in! Raven gets back up as well, but Andrea quickly grabs her and irish whips her to the ropes! Andrea sliding under Raven as Raven rebounds into the opposite pair of ropes, and now there’s an arm drag by the EAW Champion! Andrea not targeting the arm for long though, as she puts Raven in a rear chinlock! This match has been incredibly back and forth so far, and I’ll admit it’s pretty cool seeing these two do this!

James Peters: Raven doesn’t take too long to get back up to her feet, and there’s a snapmare! Raven now with a back handspring, and she attempted a dropkick but Andrea rolled out of the way! Andrea grabbing Raven as Raven attempts to get to her feet, and Andrea attempted a German Suplex, but Raven managed to land on her feet! Raven pulling Andrea up now as Andrea hasn’t realized this, and Raven manages to hit her own German Suplex! Raven with the bridging pin!

ONE!-

Rich Russillo: Andrea already manages to kick out! Andrea is getting back to her feet, and now Raven runs the ropes- RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK BY ANDREA! Raven rolling out onto the apron, and now Andrea looks to capitalize! Andrea pulling Raven up while she’s on the apron- BUT RAVEN HITS A FOREARM! Andrea dropped to a knee after that forearm, clearly caught by surprise, and now Raven climbs up to the top rope! DIVING- NO! Andrea rushed to the corner to avoid the dive, but Raven managed to land on her feet! Raven turning towards Andrea- JUST TO BE CAUGHT WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST!

James Peters: Speaking of getting caught by surprise, Raven is on spaghetti legs after that one! Andrea running the ropes- FACELIFT- NO! ANDREA DUCKED THAT FACELIFT ATTEMPT AFTER NEARLY RUNNING RIGHT INTO RAVEN’S FOOT, AND NOW THERE’S A HURRICANRANA BY ANDREA! Raven forced to roll out of the ring after that one, and now it looks like Andrea is looking for something big! WRECKING BALL DROPKI- NO! RAVEN MANAGED TO AVOID WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN A HUGE DROPKICK THROUGH THE ROPES, AND NOW RAVEN TAKES ANDREA DOWN WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE! Andrea went for something risky, and she crashed and burned!

Rich Russillo: Raven rolling Andrea back into the ring before climbing onto the apron, and now it looks like it’s Raven with something in mind as Andrea slowly gets back to her feet! RAVEN WITH A SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW! Andrea is down once again, and now Raven is going for another cover, to possibly put the EAW Champion away quickly!

ONE! T-

Rich Russillo: ANOTHER QUICK KICK OUT! That one wasn’t as early as the last time, but even so it’s gonna take a lot more to keep Andrea down, just like it’ll take a lot for Raven to be taking out of this one.

James Peters: Andrea using the ropes to get back to her feet, AND NOW RAVEN RUNS THE ROPES! TALON- NO! ANDREA MANAGES TO AVOID IT, AND NOW SHE LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE AS RAVEN TRIES TO GET BACK UP! ANDREA GRABBING RAVEN BY THE ARM, XOX- NO! ANDREA WENT FOR THAT INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER, BUT RAVEN QUICKLY MANAGED TO SWEEP THAT LEG OUT FROM UNDER HER! RAVEN NOW WITH ANOTHER BACK HANDSPRING, AND THIS TIME SHE CONNECTS WITH THE DROPKICK TO FOLLOW IT UP! This time Andrea is the one sent under the bottom rope, and Raven wastes no time in running the-

Rich Russillo: ANDREA MANAGED TO JUMP ON THE APRON AND HIT A HUGE BACK ELBOW! ANDREA QUICKLY RUSHING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS RAVEN ONCE AGAIN WAS LEFT STUNNED, AND THERE’S AN AMAZING DIVING CROSSBODY! THAT CROSSBODY WAS BEAUTIFUL, AND NOW ANDREA IS LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE OFF OF IT AS THIS TIME IT’S HER GOING FOR THE COVER!

ONE! TWO!-

Rich Russillo: AND RAVEN MANAGES TO KICK OUT! Just like I said before, it’s going to take a lot to keep Raven down! That crossbody was great, but it’s far too early for that to be enough!

James Peters: Andrea is back on her feet, and it looks like Raven is getting back up as well! The two now, with a collar and elbow tie up! The two are struggling for control, but Andrea surprisingly is able to power Raven to the corner! I’m guessing Raven still hasn’t fully recovered from that crossbody just yet, as Raven does have the size advantage over Andrea! Raven manages to turn it around though as she now gets Andrea into the corner- AND THERE’S A KNIFE EDGE CHOP! Did you hear the sound that made Rich?

Rich Russillo: Sure did, that had to hurt! Andrea stumbling out of the corner now, but Raven isn’t finished! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLE- NO! Andrea is hitting Raven in the back, doing what she can to prevent her from hitting a northern lights suplex! Andrea is free, and now she backpedals into the ropes before bouncing off of them! RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER BY ANDREA! So far these two are holding nothing back from each other, and it looks like Andrea is fired up here as Raven slowly gets back up while holding her neck!

James Peters: Andrea irish whipping Raven to the ropes, and she follows it up with another hurricanrana! Raven is quickly able to get back to her feet as she stumbles back into the corner! Andrea charging in on Raven, AND THERE’S A FOREARM SMASH IN THE CORNER! Andrea now running the ropes while Raven stumbles out of the corner, AND THERE’S A LARIA- IT DOESN’T CONNECT! RAVEN DUCKED UNDER THAT LARIAT ATTEMPT- AND THERE’S THE FACELIFT! THE FACELIFT CONNECTS, THAT ONE WAS OUT OF NOWHERE! Andrea was just floored with the Facelift spinning heel kick after being on top of this match moments ago, and now I think this could actually already be over with!

ONE! TWO!! THR-

Rich Russillo: IT’S NOT OVER! ANDREA MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AT TWO! That was honestly a great attempt at finishing this match early by Raven, I actually thought that was the end! We’re definitely getting closer after that Facelift, but I can’t say I see this ending very soon nonetheless! These are two of the toughest competitors this brand has, it’s going to take… Probably everything these two have in them to win this match. Raven is back on her feet, and I’ve gotta wonder what her plan is now that Andrea kicked out of that Facelift despite being caught by surprise like that.

James Peters: Andrea is slowly grabbing onto the ropes and making her way back to her feet, and now Raven is charging in- BUT ANDREA SENDS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE! NO, RAVEN MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON! ANDREA ATTEMPTING TO KNOCK RAVEN OFF THE APRON- BUT RAVEN MANAGES TO CATCH HER ARM! HEADBUTT BY RAVEN! THAT HEADBUTT STUNNED ANDREA, AND NOW RAVEN IS PULLING HER OUT ONTO THE APRON! ANDREA IS ON THE APRON, BUT NOW THERE’S A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION! ANDREA WITH ANOTHER! AND ONE MORE! RAVEN GETTING WOBBLY AS ANDREA BACKS UP, AND NOW ANDREA CHARGES IN WITH A RUNNING DROPKI- NO!

Rich Russillo: RAVEN JUMPED OVER THE TOP ROPE BACK INTO THE RING AT THE LAST MOMENT, CAUSING ANDREA TO DROPKICK THE RING POST! ANDREA DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE, AND NOW RAVEN IS WAITING PATIENTLY INSIDE OF THE RING! Is Raven gonna try and take a count out win? Andrea is slowly getting back up, wait no! RAVEN IS RUNNING THE ROPES AS ANDREA IS BACK TO HER FEET, AND THIS TIME ANDREA HAS NO TIME TO REACT! SUICIDE DIVE BY RAVEN ROBERTS!!!

James Peters: What a suicide dive! Both competitors crashed into the barricade after that though, and it looks like they’re both down! It seems that they’re both hurt pretty bad, as if they hit their heads against the barricade or something. The referee is obviously forced to start his count, and now things could be bad as this match could already go down the drain if it ends in a double count out!

Referee: One!… Two!… Three!…

Rich Russillo: The two women seem to at least be stirring, but it doesn’t look like they’re going to get up just yet! This still doesn’t look good, I’m not sure if they’re gonna make it back into the ring just yet!

Referee: Four!… Five!… Six!…

Rich Russillo: I’ll admit James, I’m beginning to lose hope here! We’re getting closer and closer to ten, and while the women are making their way back to the ring, my God they’re moving like snails! I understand that they’re hurt, but they need to hurry up if they want this match to continue!

Referee: Seven!… Eight!… Nine!…

James Peters: I’ve got to admit, I agree with you Rich! They’re both so close, but at this rate, I think it’s over!

Referee: TEN!

James Peters: THEY MADE IT IN, THEY BOTH MADE IT BACK INTO THE RING JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF TE- HEY, WAIT! ANDREA QUICKLY GETTING TO HER FEET, AND SHE GRABS RAVEN BY THE ARM! XOXO!!! THE INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER CONNECTS THIS TIME, AND NOW BOTH COMPETITORS DROP TO THE MAT! NEITHER WOMEN HAS FULLY RECOVERED AFTER THAT NASTY SUICIDE DIVE, BUT ANDREA SOMEHOW RECEIVED A BURST OF ENERGY AND MANAGED TO HIT THE XOXO! ANDREA SLOWLY REGAINING LIFE, AND NOW SHE PULLS RAVEN INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, THE COVER NOW BY ANDREA!

ONE! TWO!! THREE-

Rich Russillo: RAVEN ROBERTS GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! Andrea not even reacting to that shocking kick out, and instead it looks like she’s just taking some time to recover, which would honestly be a great idea after how back and forth this match has been so far! These two started this match bringing everything out of the tank, and now I really do wonder, what do they have to do in order to win? I think Andrea’s got an idea as she slowly approaches Raven, but what? WAIT, OH MY GOD, WHAT!?

James Peters: RAVEN WAS JUST STARTING TO GET BACK TO HER FEET, BUT LOOK AT THIS! RAVEN IS FORCED BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND ONCE AGAIN, BECAUSE ANDREA HAS HER IN A REAR NAKED CHOKE! WE ALL KNOW ANDREA IS FACING CHARLIE MARR AT SHOCK VALUE, AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVES CHARLIE HAS IN HIS ARSENAL! ANDREA HAS CHARLIE’S OWN “TRANQUILITY” LOCKED IN ON RAVEN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE ANDREA IS AIMING TO SHOW CHARLIE UP AND TRY AND BEAT RAVEN WITH HIS MOVE!

Rich Russillo: I guess in a way she’s trying to prove “anything you can do, I can do better”! It’s a great way to play mind games, but if we’re being honest, I don’t know if Andrea should want to do this with Charlie! Nonetheless, Raven is struggling right now as Andrea won’t let go of that rear naked choke! Raven needs to find a way out of this or just tap out, or else Andrea is gonna make her go to sleep! We’ve said many times that Raven and Andrea are close friends and all, but I’m sure Raven herself knows that Andrea isn’t going to let this submission go just because of their friendship!

James Peters: Raven is reaching out for those ropes, but she’s not grabbing onto anything! Raven is way too far to reach those ropes after Andrea pulled her to the middle of the ring, I honestly think we’re reaching the end! Raven looks like she’s slowly starting to fight less and less, she could be losing consciousness! This is bad for Raven, but how huge would it be if Andrea was to win here by submission, and what a statement it’d be if she did so using Charlie’s own move!

Rich Russillo: That would be insane- BUT WAIT! WAIT, NO! IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE NOT GONNA SEE THAT HAPPENED, RAVEN JUST ROLLED BACK TO HER FEET, AND NOW SHE’S PINNING ANDREA’S SHOULDERS DOWN! IS RAVEN GONNA STEAL THE WIN!?

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!-

Rich Russillo: NO, ANDREA JUST BARELY KICKED OUT, AND BOTH COMPETITORS ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET AS ANDREA SCRAMBLED OUT OF THAT PIN! That one was close, the match nearly ended but not in the way any of us expected! Both competitors now are in opposite corners, and it looks like neither of them really know how to approach the rest of this match after all we’ve seen so far!

James Peters: ANDREA MAKES THE FIRST MOVE AS SHE CHARGES TOWARDS RAVEN- BUT RAVEN MOVES OUT OF THE CORNER, CAUSING ANDREA TO JUMP FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! RAVEN RUNNING THE ROPES NOW AS ANDREA IS STUNNED, TALON- WAIT NO! ANDREA WITH A JUMPING METEORA, HOW DID SHE DO IT!? JUST AS RAVEN WENT FOR THE TALON ANDREA JUMPED UP AND DROVER HER KNEES INTO RAVEN’S FACE! RAVEN IS DOWN AND OUT, BUT ANDREA ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER YET! COULD THIS COST HER, OR WILL THIS LEAD TO ANDREA GETTING THE WIN!?

Rich Russillo: Andrea is slowly making her way to the top rope, and Raven is still down and out! Honestly, I think this really is the end of the match! Raven isn’t moving, and now Andrea is starting to get into position! THIS IS IT, TO PUT AWAY THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! MAGIC HOUR- DOESN’T CONNECT!?!? RAVEN… SHE GOT THE KNEES UP!! RAVEN MANAGED TO GET THE KNEES UP AT THE LAST MOMENT, AND NOW SHE’S PULLING HERSELF UP AS ANDREA GETS TO A KNEE, HOLDING HER MIDSECTION IN PAIN! RAVEN CHARGING IN ON THE DEFENSELESS ANDREA, TALON!!!! THE TALON CONNECTS, I THINK THAT’S IT!

James Peters: THAT’S GOTTA BE IT, THERE’S NO WAY ANDREA IS KICKING OUT OF THAT! ANDREA’S DONE! THE COVER NOW BY RAVEN, TO PUT AWAY THE EAW CHAMPION!!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

James Peters: WAIT, WHAT!? YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! NO WAY, HOW DID ANDREA DO IT!? ANDREA JUST MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME AT PROBABLY THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT! RAVEN IS COMPLETELY SHOCKED HERE, THAT SHOULD’VE BEEN THE END OF THIS MATCH!! I CAN’T BEGIN TO WRAP MY HEAD AROUND IT, HOW IS ANDREA STILL FIGHTING!?

Rich Russillo: She’s the EAW Champion, she has to be able to fight like this! Raven slowly getting back up to her feet, and now a smile is on her face! These two obviously have so much respect for each other, and I think Raven is once again witnessing just how much heart Andrea Valentine has! Raven has defeated Andrea once in the past, but a lot has changed since then. If Raven wants to beat Andrea tonight, she somehow has to bring even more to the table, and oh my.. I think that’s what she’s gonna do!

James Peters: RAVEN IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND THIS TIME IT’S ANDREA THAT’S NOT MOVING! IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS THESE TWO HAVE COMPLETELY SWAPPED POSITIONS AS ANDREA IS IMMOBILE! RAVEN IS SETTING UP FOR IT, IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S IN POSITION! IF SHE WANTS TO TAKE OUT THE EAW CHAMPION, THERE’S NO BETTER WAY TO DO IT THAN THIS!! RAVEN LOOKING TO FLY, RAVEN’S WINGS!!!!!- WHAT!? COME ON, EVEN AFTER THAT!? ANDREA JUST BARELY MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY, AND RAVEN CRASH LANDED RIGHT ONTO THE MAT!

Rich Russillo: Jeez, how are they doing this!? Andrea managed to avoid that spiral tap, and now both women are just laid out in the ring! These two are so talented, they’ve got so much fight in them it’s unbelievable! The fact that Andrea was even able to roll out of the way there says a lot about how much she has still has left, I can’t believe this one still has yet to finish! The Talon was one thing, but now she avoided the Raven’s Wings! This match is once again back to a stalemate it seems, as after all this, neither woman is getting back to their feet!

James Peters: Well, this is a fight between World Champions. It’s gonna take a lot to take either of them down for the three count, but stuff like this is also a side effect of a match of this proportion. They’ve taken so much out of each other, that now, I don’t know if they can even fight any more.

(The two lay motionless on the ground for a few moments, before Raven regains her consciousness, slowly crawling to a corner. Slowly, Andrea wakes up as well, as she begins crawling over to the opposite corner.)

Rich Russillo: Somehow, both Andrea and Raven look like they’re back in this match. Both competitors are getting back to their feet now, and the two are beginning to approach each other, meeting in the center of the ring. RAVEN WITH A FOREARM! ANDREA STUMBLED BACK FROM THAT FOREARM, BUT NOW SHE HITS RAVEN WITH HER OWN! RAVEN ON SPAGHETTI LEGS FOR A MOMENT, BUT NOW SHE HITS A SECOND FOREARM! NOT ANDREA HITS ANOTHER! BOTH RAVEN AND ANDREA ARE GOING BACK AND FORTH HERE, JUST TRADING FOREARMS, AND AS OF NOW, I DON’T KNOW WHO’S GETTING THE UPPER HAND!

James Peters: ANDREA IS! ANDREA WITH NONSTOP FOREARMS TO RAVEN, CAUSING RAVEN TO BE FORCED TO THE ROPES! ANDREA RUNNING THE ROPES NOW- RIGHT INTO A BOOT TO THE FACE BY RAVEN! RAVEN NOW, WITH A CODEBRE- HUH!? ANDREA IS HOLDING RAVEN UP, AND NOW SHE PUSHES HER BACK ONTO HER FEET! ANDREA CHARGING IN- BUT RAVEN SENDS ANDREA THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE!! RAVEN IMMEDIATELY TAKING OFF AS SHE RUNS THE ROPES, BUT THIS TIME IT’S NOT A SUICIDE DIVE!!! FLIGHT DESTROYER CONNECTS!! RAVEN JUST HIT THAT SUICIDE DIVE CANADIAN DESTROYER, AND NOW SHE’S LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE AS SHE ROLLS ANDREA BACK INTO THE RING!

Rich Russillo: RAVEN IS PULLING ANDREA UP, AND NOW SHE THROWS HER INTO THE ROPES- BUT ANDREA, SHE SOMEHOW JUMPED RIGHT ONTO RAVEN’S SHOULDERS! RAVEN HAS ANDREA IN A POWERBOMB POSITION THOUGH, THIS DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR ANDREA, I THINK HER PLAN MIGHT’VE BACKFIRE- NO! ANDREA SPINNING AROUND, AND THERE’S THE ATOMIC BLONDE!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? ANDREA JUST MANAGED TO HIT RAVEN WITH THE ATOMIC BLONDE, THAT’S IT! THIS ONE HAS TO BE OVER NOW, RIGHT!? THE COVER NOW BY ANDREA, THIS ONE IS DONE!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

James Peters: OH, COME ON ALREADY!! THEY CAN’T KEEP DOING THIS, IT SHOULDN’T BE POSSIBLE!! ANDREA HAS AN ALMOST EXPRESSIONLESS LOOK ON HER FACE, BUT THE LOOK ON HER EYES SAYS IT ALL IDON’T THINK SHE CAN EVEN PROCESS THE FACT THAT SOMEHOW, RAVEN ROBERTS HAS MANAGED TO JUST BARELY GET THE SHOULDER UP ONE MORE TIME! EVERY TIME THIS MATCH LOOKED LIKE IT COULD BE OVER, THESE TWO HAVE JUST WENT OUT AND PROVED US WRONG! IT’S LIKE THEY’RE JUST MADE TO FIGHT FOREVER, I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS IS EVEN HUMAN! ARE THEY EVEN HUMAN!? I HONESTLY CAN’T EVEN TELL AT THIS POINT!

Rich Russillo: Andrea just now beginning to come to her senses, and she asks the referee, and yes everyone, this match is still on! Raven somehow managed to get the shoulder up just before three! I honestly have no clue how these two are doing it, but we’ve already stressed this enough throughout the match. These are two of the company’s best Elitists today, and it’s no wonder why they make up two of the four current World Champions. Raven is slowly trying to crawl towards the corner to try and rest- BUT ANDREA RUNS THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO RAVEN’S LEG!

James Peters: Raven holding her leg in pain before pulling herself out onto the apron, and it looks like Andrea knows it’s gonna take a lot to take Raven out, she’s gonna have to bring the same side of her that she’s gonna bring with Charlie! Andrea pulling Raven up on the apron, AND THERE’S A HUGE RIGHT HAND! Raven is barely hanging on at this point! Andrea grabbing Raven and walking over to the turnbuckles now, what’s she thinking here? Andrea is beginning to climb to the top rope, and I think she’s trying to take Raven, but-

Rich Russillo: RAVEN SWEEPS ANDREA’S LEGS, LEAVING HER STUCK ON THE TOP ROPE! RAVEN RE- ENTERING THE RING, AND NOW SHE HITS ANDREA IN THE BACK! RAVEN IS CLIMBING UP, AND THINGS AREN’T LOOKING GOOD FOR ANDREA RIGHT NOW! RAVEN GRABBING ANDREA ON THE TOP ROPE, AND OH MY GOD, BACK SUPERPLEX BY THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN, AND- NO!! RAVEN TRIED PUTTING HER ARM OVER ANDREA FOR THE COVER, BUT ANDREA JUST BARELY ROLLED AWAY BEFORE RAVEN COULD EVEN DO THAT!

James Peters: That was probably Raven’s best chance of winning this match after hitting the Talon earlier, but somehow Andrea managed to roll over towards the ropes before Raven could even cover her! I don’t know if Andrea is even awake or if she did that on purpose, but either way you’ve got to appreciate how she’s been able to keep herself in this match! Raven is slowly dragging herself back to her feet, and it looks like the time is coming! Raven is aiming to put this match to an end, and at this rate, it’s gonna happen soon!

Rich Russillo: Raven dragging Andrea to her feet, and she’s tying her arm to the ropes! Raven didn’t tie the other one, but Andrea looks out of it, and at this point it looks like Raven’s gonna finish this one anyway so there’s no point! IF RAVEN’S GOING FOR WHAT I THINK SHE IS, THIS ONE IS DONE! RAVEN RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S THE FIRST TALO- NO!! ANDREA IS ALIVE! ANDREA’S ALIVE AND SHE JUST HIT RAVEN WITH AN ENZUIGIRI! ANDREA NOW UNTYING HER ARM FROM THE ROPES- BUT RAVEN IS ABLE TO RECOVER IN TIME, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX BY THE BIRD OF PREY!

James Peters: …ANDREA ROLLS ONTO HER FEET THOUGH, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF RAVEN’S HEAD! ANDREA USING THE ROPES TO PULL HERSELF UP, AND I THINK SHE’S READY TO END THIS MATCH HERSELF NOW! ANDREA CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND NOW SHE’S TELLING RAVEN TO GET UP! I THINK I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT ANDREA IS SETTING UP FOR, AND LET ME TELL YOU, IF THIS CONNECTS, THIS MATCH IS OVER! RAVEN IS SLOWLY MAKING HER WAY BACK TO HER FEET, AND THIS IS IT! ANDREA DIVES, V-DAY!- RAVEN MOVES!

Rich Russillo: RAVEN MOVES, BUT ANDREA LANDED ON HER FEET! ANDREA TURNING TO GO RIGHT BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE- BUT THERE’S THE CODEBREAKER THIS TIME BY RAVEN! Raven isn’t going for the cover this time around although it’d probably be a good idea. Instead she’s dragging Andrea away from the ropes, AND NOW I CAN SEE WHY! WING BREAKER BY RAVEN!! RAVEN HAS THE WING BREAKER LOCKED IN ON ANDREA, THAT FUJIWARA ARMBAR, AND SHE TRIED LOCKING IT IN EARLY ON IN THIS MATCH BUT SHE WAS UNSUCCESSFUL! THIS TIME, I DON’T KNOW HOW ANDREA EXPECTS TO GET OUT OF IT! COULD THIS BE IT!? IS RAVEN GONNA MAKE ANDREA TAP OUT TONIGHT, JUST BEFORE SHOCK VALUE!? RAVEN NOW GRABBING ANDREA’S HAND, AND OH MY GOD, SHE’S PULLING BACK ON THOSE BROKEN FINGERS!

James Peters: Andrea is screaming in pain, flailing her arm around trying to grab onto anything she can! The longer she’s in this submission, the further this match drifts away from her, especially with her fingers! I honestly think Andrea will have to tap out here, after everything she’s been through, this has got to be too much! I honestly think Andrea’s gonna have to tap out, this is Raven’s win! Take nothing away from Andrea, she fought incredibly hard and there’s no wonder why she’s EAW Champion, but-

Rich Russillo: ANDREA MANAGES TO FIND THE SAME COUNTER AS BEFORE! THE CRUCIFIX PIN BY ANDREA!!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

Rich Russillo: RAVEN KICKS OUT! RAVEN IS BACK ON HER FEET BUT ANDREA IS ONLY JUST GETTING UP!! TALON!!!!- NO! ANDREA MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW SHE CHARGES IN AS IT’S RAVEN GETTING BACK UP NOW! STEP-UP SENTON ONTO RAVEN’S BACK!! BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN, BUT IT’S ANDREA THAT GETS UP FIRST AS IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S WAITING FOR RAVEN TO GET UP! I DON’T KNOW WHAT ANDREA IS THINKING HERE, BUT WHATEVER IT IS, SURELY IT’S GOT TO GET THE JOB DONE!

James Peters: RAVEN IS GETTING TO HER KNEES, AND NOW ANDREA SETS UP FOR IT! VALENTINE’S MASSACRE- HUH!? WOW! RAVEN JUST AVOIDED THE VALENTINE’S MASSACRE WITH A HANDSTAND OF HE OWN! RAVEN BACK ON HER FEET, AND THERE’S A JUDO THROW AS ANDREA TRIED CHARGING AT HER! ANDREA MANAGING TO GET TO HER FEET, BUT THERE’S A SECOND JUDO THROW BY RAVEN! ANDREA BACK UP ONCE AGAIN- AND THIS TIME RAVEN CONNECTS WITH THE HUNTRESS BOMB! ANDREA WAS JUST HIT WITH TWO JUDO THROWS AND A SIT-OUT SPINEBUSTER, THAT’S GOTTA BE IT! THE COVER NOW BY RAVEN!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

Rich Russillo: THAT’S IT!! THAT SHOULD BE IT, BUT THE REF’S NOT RINGING THE BELL BECAUSE JUST BEFORE HE COULD, HE SAW ANDREA’S HANDS JUST BARELY UNDER THE ROPES! RAVEN CAN’T BELIEVE IT, ONCE AGAIN RAVEN CAME SO CLOSE TO WINNING, BUT THAT POSSIBLY WENT UP IN SMOKE THANKS TO ANDREA POSSIBLY BEING THE MOST LUCKY WOMAN ALIVE! SOMEHOW THE EAW CHAMPION IS STILL IN THIS, WHAT A PERFORMANCE THESE TWO HAVE PUT ON TONIGHT! RAVEN GETTING BACK TO HER FEET, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S JUST GONNA WAIT FOR ANDREA TO GET BACK UP HERSELF!

James Peters: Andrea is somehow, slowly but surely, getting back to her feet once again! I don’t think she even knows where she is, but she’s still finding it in herself to continue fighting, and that’s something you’ve got to respect! Despite all that’s gone down, Andrea isn’t giving up, not yet! Raven hasn’t either though. Neither of these women are going to quit until there’s a decisive winner, even if these two are such good friends! I definitely appreciate that, after all if they held anything back we wouldn’t get this great match!

Rich Russillo: ANDREA IS BACK UP, AND SHE TAKES RAVEN BY SURPRISE AS SHE BEGINS GOING AFTER HER WITH A FLURRY OF PUNCHES! RAVEN IS GETTING MAULED RIGHT NOW! ANDREA IS BACKING RAVEN INTO THE CORNER, AND SHE’S NOT STOPPING! ANDREA IS GIVING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING SHE HAS LEFT, BUT CAN SHE DO IT!? CAN ANDREA ACTUALLY WIN THIS MATCH!? WAIT, RAVEN PUSHES ANDREA OUT OF THE CORNER! TALON!!!

James Peters: THE TALON CONNECTS!!! RAVEN JUST HIT ANDREA WITH THE TALON, BUT SHE’S NOT GOING FOR THE COVER JUST YET! I DON’T KNOW WHY, BUT RAVEN NOW IS GOING BACK UP TOP! LAST TIME RAVEN DID THIS, IT DIDN’T WORK, AND IT ALLOWED ANDREA TO GET BACK INTO THE MATCH! RAVEN DOESN’T SEEM TO CARE, SHE’S TAKING ANOTHER RISK!! IF THIS CONNECTS, SURELY THIS MATCH HAS GOT TO BE FINISHED! ONCE AGAIN ANDREA ISN’T MOVING, CAN SHE ACTUALLY HIT IT!? RAVEN’S WINGS!!

Rich Russillo: IT CONNECTS!!! THE RAVEN’S WINGS, THE SPIRAL TAP ACTUALLY CONNECTS THIS TIME, AND ANDREA IS FINISHED, DONE FOR! RAVEN HOOKING THE LEG, GOODNIGHT ANDREA!!! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN PUT UP A FANTASTIC FIGHT, BUT I THINK THIS IS IT! IT’S FINALLY DONE AND OVER WITH! RAVEN ROBERTS DEFEATS ANDREA VALENTINE ONCE AGAIN!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, RAAAAAAVEEEENNNN RROOOOBBEERRRRTTTSS!!!!

James Peters: What an amazing match! This didn’t disappoint in the slightest! This match really could’ve gone either way, but in the end Andrea just didn’t have enough left to keep fighting. You’ve got to applaud her efforts, but at the same time, congratulations Raven! Both of these women did fantastic jobs, but it’s Raven who’s leaving Voltage with another win on her hands.

Rich Russillo: Charlie’s probably happy to see Andrea lose just before his match with her, but if anything I’d be worried if I were him. Andrea put up an excellent fight, and her and Raven are friends. If she could do all she did tonight to Raven, just imagine what she’ll do to Charlie.

James Peters: You’re right, but that’s a story for, a week from now I guess.

Rich Russillo: That’s all for Voltage, goodnight everyone, and see you at Shock Value!

(‘Mark my Words’ plays as Raven Roberts slowly gets back to her feet, before helping Andrea Valentine up as well, who has slowly regained her consciousness. The two hug in the center of the ring before the referee hands the two their Championships. Andrea and Raven hold their titles and hands up as Voltage fades out.)
