(EAW intro plays.)
(A recap is shown of the intense last week of Voltage)
(RECAP: The show starts off with Rex McAllister cutting a promo in the ring. He talked about his lost the week previously to Andrea Valentine and how despite that he was still going to go to the Grand Rampage and win it. He then talked about how last year he tried to win the Grand Rampage and Pain For Pride 12 and how he came so close to reaching his goal yet getting his hand slapped away at the last second. He promises everyone that he is not going to fail this year and how he’s going to win the Grand Rampage in a few weeks time. But before he can continue he is interrupted by none other than Shawn Sturgis. He stated although Jamie O’Hara is on the shelf he still wouldn’t be the reason why Rex McAllister comes up short at Grand Rampage, there’s been a lot of new talent and it was time someone took the opportunity. Shawn states that Rex is not getting a moment on his watch and Rex challenges him for a match next week, which Shawn happily accepts)
(RECAP CONTINUES: It then moves onto Sofia Clarke interviewing Jesse Barlow. Jesse understands why the week prior that Colby Sol attacked him after their match, because he wasn’t himself and not in control of his actions. He says he is able to cure Colby Sol and help him overcome his demons if he just joins him, and gives him a week to decide on his answer)
(RECAP CONTINUES: Buckeye25 is then broadcasted as Levi is in the front seat. Something is clearly off but that is not the main concern. He talks about the damage that Lars’ Caregiver, Asmo had sustained. He talks about how because Lars is coming for Ms. Extreme he states that is why she tries to “loosely” establish dominance in the ring as if she was the better competitor. He continues to downgrade her and say that Lars is the sweeping flame to burn away her false pride, and that he will take the crown away from her that is the Interwire Championship)
(RECAP CONTINUES: The tag match with Alun Wyn Jones and Colby Sol vs Kristopher Killbourne and Maxwell is shown. Maxwell and Kristopher had the offense for the most of the match but beforelong Colby and Alun both began to gain some offense in connecting with both ‘Sol Food’ and ‘Nos Da’ to pull out the win. It then proceeds onto the Big Bogawa Bhampionship match between Komatsu Ogawa and The Woogieman. Both men gave it all as it’s clear this very prestigious championship was a must-have for both of these competitors. But in the end Komatsu connected with the ‘Obsidian Flame’ to pull out the win just barely against Woogie. After Komatsu cut a promo stating that he vacates the “stupid championship belt” and put his ballot into the Grand Rampage matchup and that he will be the one receiving the World Championship match at PFP)
(RECAP CONTINUES: It then goes to the Lars Grier vs Jesse Barlow match. Both of them went extremely at it at a very quickened pace as it seemed this match was going on very fast. At the end it was Ms. Extreme that ran down and attacked both of them calling for a double DQ and escaped before anything could happen making a quick and easy statement to The Corvus heading into Lars and Ms. Extreme’s Interwire Championship match at Grand Rampage. Terry Chambers vs Grizzly Bear Rocco in a sort of Grand Rampage preview match is also shown. After a literal battle of goliaths with edge of your seat action to behold it was Terry Chambers that locked in the ‘Lost In The Chambers’ to get a win out barely against Rocco)
(RECAP CONTINUES: The New Breed Champion Justin Windgate makes a surprise appearance on Voltage as he goes to visit Jalyn Garcia before Jalyn’s possibly biggest match. He wanted to wish him good luck but Jalyn wasn’t going to have it. He said if he tries to do anything that Justin will regret it will come Grand Rampage and he will take his title. Justin then retalites blowing smoke in his face before taking a shot at the injured Jamie O’Hara and leaving)
RECAP CONTINUES: It then cuts to a certainly highly contendable Unique Opportunity ladder match comprised of the likes of Charlie Marr, Dr. Bethany Blue, Raven Roberts, and Jalyn Garcia. They all really went ham in this matchup as they all tried to kill eachother one way or another the way you look at it. At the end of the match before Charlie Marr can reach up the ladder to grab the briefcase it is none other than Nurse Goldstein that gets involved to help Dr. Bethany Blue take the briefcase and get the win)
(RECAP CONTINUES: SASS has a moment backstage as they confer over what happened regarding The Visual Prophet and the Unified Tag Titles. Sierra says a part of her believes Drake doesn’t believe in her, but Sarah and her have a conversation about grabbing the brass ring and succeeding and not letting anyone get in their way. They make a decision that they’re going to say their answer to Drizzy & Vizzy’s challenge on the next weeks Dynasty)
(RECAP CONTINUES: It then proceeds over to the main event of the evening which was SASS against Andrea Valentine and Ms. Extreme or the Extreme Valentines. Both teams gave it their all as it was clear they were both mutuals in the ring when it comes to skill, Andrea was about to seal the win against Sierra but in the end it was Malcolm Jones putting his hand in getting out of the commentary booth and giving Andrea a bundle of roses, distracting her causing Sierra to roll her up and giving SASS one of possibly the biggest wins in both of their careers)
(The highlight video fades out to the camera panning around the outside of the empty Viejas Arena in San Diego, California as “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami starts to play up as the camera pans around. It doesn’t pan around for long because who would be rowdied up to empty stands with absolutely no people there? It doesn’t kill the mood though as the camera pans over to Rich Russillo, James Peters and apparently Persephone who is about 6 feet away from the broadcast booth still wearing her headphones as she crosses her arms. Rich and James are like always wearing matching shirts which has a big photo of Malcolm Jones plastered on the front of it and in the back it reads “SIMPCUM JONES” they look with smiles as they speak)
James Peters: WELCOME TO VOLTAGE! I’m here of course as always with my broadcast partners Rich Russillo and… Persephone?
Persephone: Social distancing James, 6 feet apart, facemasks on, always be prepared, stay woke.
(James stands up and grabs Persephone and drags her back to the broadcasting booth as she gives a shriek as she’s thrown into it)
Rich Russillo: DON’T YOU DARE MANHANDLE MY KWEEN LIKE THAT!
James Peters: :skip: Anyways we have some excellent matches on the card for you which are not limited to our main event which is very highly anticipated as Rex McAllister faces Shawn Sturgis in a Grand Rampage preview match which is sure to get you even more excited for Grand Rampage itself.
Persephone: We also have SHITS going against Precum Jones as it’s clear this match is going to be as boring as the match last week that we saw, safe to say I’m going to be disappointed once more, but what’s new.
RIch Russillo: Not only that but we have Terry Chambers facing off against Colby Sol versus Grizzly Bear Rocco versus Charlie Marr versus Alun Wyn Jones which is certainly the most heated and possibly the most vigorous match on the card. But enough of us just talking about it, let’s get right to the action!
(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX hits, and moments after Andrea Valentine walks down to the ring. She has the EAW Championship in her shoulder, and a microphone in her hand as she makes her way to the ring. She stops for a second to think about what she’s going to say, and after collecting her thoughts she immediately begins to speak. She has a lot to say, especially after Malcolm Jones cost her and Ms. Extreme their match against SASS the prior week.)
Andrea Valentine: Last week. I’m sure everyone at home saw what happened. Extreme Valentine faced SASS in the main event of Voltage, and Malcolm Jones ruined what would’ve been a great match. I’m not mad at the fact that Camille and I lost. I knew that Sierra and Sarah would’ve tried to capitalize off of whatever opportunity came to them. These past few weeks they’ve been on the rise, it only makes sense that they’d do what’s needed to defeat a team composed of the EAW Champion and the Interwire Champion. I can accept that, however I am just a bit annoyed at what led to my loss. If you guys haven’t seen it, I was rolled up by Sierra at the end of that match, but that came after Malcolm Jones distracted me by… Offering me flowers? Malcolm, honestly I’m more confused than anything. I don’t understand why you’re trying to play these games with me. They’re not going to work, especially when you know you have a woman to go home to every night. If you thought you were going to get under my skin by costing me one match, I don’t think you truly know the woman you’re dealing with. You’re not going to get under my head that easily. There’s been so many people to try and break me, and they were all unsuccessful. Even you should know that, you’ve dealt with Charlie Marr and Veena Adams in the past, just like I have. I didn’t let either of them get in my head. I didn’t let them get the better of me. I just continued doing things my way, and I let my hard work speak for itself. No matter what setback I’m faced with, I won’t let my opponent gain the upper hand. I refuse to let anyone think that you’ve gotten to me Malcolm, so why don’t you come out here? I want to see you face to face, right here, right now.
(After a few moments, ‘Scenario’ by Pop Smoke hits, and Malcolm Jones begins walking down the ramp with a microphone in his hand. He then begins speaking as he walks down the ramp.)
Malcolm Jones: Andrea, I-
Andrea Valentine: Wait, I wasn’t finished. I wanted you out here, however I think you’ve done enough talking. These past few weeks, you’ve shown your hand. I know that you want to get into my head Malcolm, but I’m as focused as ever, and I can tell you exactly how our Grand Rampage match is going to go. I’m going to defeat you Malcolm. I am going to pin you in the center of the ring, and I’m going to retain the EAW Championship, taking me one step closer to finally headlining Pain for Pride as the EAW Champion. This is what I’ve been working all season to achieve. I can’t let you come back and just take away everything I’ve worked for. Mind games or just an honest gesture, I don’t care. I won’t let you get to me in any way. I have to be at my A game, and I have to defeat Malcolm Jones.
Malcolm Jones:… I-
(Before Malcolm could speak, Andrea puts a finger to his mouth, shushing him once again.)
Andrea Valentine: I still don’t want you to speak just yet. You’ve said enough the past few weeks. Anyways Malcolm, things can stay respectful towards us. We don’t have to be enemies, but if you ever try to cross the line between the two of us, I will be ready. I’ll be prepared for whatever games you try to play from this point on. All the flowers and all that stuff mean nothing to me at this point. I won’t let anything stop me from retaining the EAW Championship at Grand Rampage. I will do whatever it takes to keep this Championship, because while you may have been screwed over back at Bloodsport last year, everyone has moved on, and this Championship belongs to me now. You said yourself that you could’ve come back at any time, so you could’ve come back and won this yourself. However, you didn’t. I’m the one that took this Championship out of Charlie Marr’s hands, and I won’t let you take away what I’ve earned. I respect you Malcolm, but unfortunately for now I have to put that respect to the side. I’m sure you understand where I’m coming from. This is my time, and I will pull out all the stops in order to get my moment.
Malcolm Jones:…. Can I speak now..?
Andrea Valentine: Fine. What do you have to say?
Malcolm Jones: Well, I-
James Peters: OH MY GOD! MALCOLM JUST HIT ANDREA IN THE FACE WITH THE MICROPHONE! ANDREA IS OUT, BUT I DON’T THINK MALCOLM IS FINISHED JUST YET! MALCOLM IS GETTING ANDREA IN POSITION, AND I DON’T LIKE THE LOOK OF THINGS! SHAKE THE ROOM!!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM JONES JUST HIT ANDREA WITH THE SHAKE THE ROOM, THE CANADIAN DESTROYER CONNECTS, BUT WHY!? MALCOLM WAS SAYING HE WANTED ANDREA AT HER BEST! HE SAID HE DIDN’T MEAN TO COST HER HER MATCH WITH SASS, BUT NOW HE JUST LAID HER OUT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! MALCOLM, WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?
(Malcolm Jones picks up his microphone before looking down at the EAW Championship and picking that up as well. He holds it in his hand, staring at it for a few seconds before finally raising his microphone to his mouth.)
Malcolm Jones: The EAW Championship is comin’ home.
(Malcolm Jones holds the EAW Championship up, before finally dropping it down on top of Andrea. ‘Scenario’ begins playing, and Malcolm Jones finally exits the ring, retaining his usual confident look after taking down the EAW Champion. Andrea is still laid out, not yet conscious after being blindsided by her challenger.)
James Peters: This is going to be a match to see.
Rich Russillo: Honestly, what we just saw moments ago could be the future. I honestly believe Malcolm Jones might regain the EAW Championship.
James Peters: Well, we all know he has what it takes. He’s won the title before and we all remember what it took to dethrone him. This might be an uphill battle for Andrea, but we all know one thing. Andre Valentine doesn’t give up.
(Voltage fades to a commercial break as Andrea slowly begins stirring, looking up the ramp in frustration.)
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: A commercial break for Malcolm Jones, really we don’t know the topic of the commercial, he just stands there for a moment before saying “I-” as the commercial cuts him off and ends right then and there)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following is a TAG TEAM MATCH! And it is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
(‘Saturday Nights Alright (For Fighting)’ by Elton John plays up as Limmy Monaghan makes his way out to the stage. He comes out enthusiastically as he throws an arm in the air and points a figure up to the sky with a bright smile. He walks around the stage embracing the moment as his debut is clearly precious for him. After a while, he makes his way to the center of the ramp and takes a deep breath with his eyes closed before opening it and giving a smile before making his descent down the ramp and heading towards the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Glasgow, Scotland… weighing in at 180 pounds… THE BRAW BRILLIANCE… LIMMY MONAGHAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Limmy Monaghan is a newcomer here to EAW and he seems to be bursting with energy at the moment. From the notes that are compiled from him, he seems like the everyday good guy, at least you hope. He’s known to kind of twist and bends the rules of wrestling, yet still, portray himself as the good guy at the end of the day?
James Peters: Well no matter that it seems it’s going to do him well in matches. Although it may not be the best suggestive way there’s nothing wrong with getting your hands dirty, now let’s just see if he can put it to use and bring himself and his tag partner to a win while we’re at it. He’s bound to go places, just a matter of where the chips fall on the table.
Persephone: Ew, he’s bald… we’re at this point in time if I know completely nothing about the person I’m basing him off the looks, and I can say his future is looking pretty bleak. Meanwhile Rex McAllister though…
(Limmy Monaghan continues to make his way down to the ringside area as he looks around giving a nod with a smirk as ‘Saturday Nights Alright (For Fighting)’ fades out. Limmy waits for a moment checking an invisible watch before ‘Gimme The Prize’ by Queen then begins to play up. Mark Macias begins to strut out to the center stage with charisma pouring out of him. A lone spotlight shines on him as he takes a swing and points to the stands before taking a pause and making his way to the ring with a certain amount of elegance in his strut as he does so, making him seem of some sort of importance)
Bella Braxton: And his partner… from Hollywood, California… weighing in at 221 pounds… DOUBLE M… MARK MACIAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for the other half of the tag team that calls themselves “The Grand Athletes” we’ve got Mark Macias. You know those bootleg movies that you watch when you’re short on money and really they’re just knockoffs of other movies, yeah half the time Mark Macias is the main star in that. Does he really care about it though? No, not really because he still makes himself off like he’s Tom Cruise or something along the lines of that.
James Peters: With that arrogant lifestyle he comes off as very brash. He could brag all day if he had the choice on the mic and honestly I’m probably not lying with that. Of course, it may turn people the wrong way but I’m sure he has the wrestling skills to back that up as well, no doubt about it. And I’m sure despite everything that he’s going to make sure that his face isn’t hurt, and he wins this match tonight along with his partner.
Persephone: You know when I heard a movie star was going to be coming to Voltage, I could not be more disappointed with what I was given tonight. I thought it would be someone like, you know, Chris Evans? I am disappointed by the results and I could not be more disappointed by his lies about his “pretty” face, not in a fucking million years.
(Mark Macias joins Limmy Monaghan on the stage as Limmy turns to him and tries to go for a fist-bump, but Mark only shakes his head and walks away heading the opposite way he’s headed around ringside. They both enter through opposite sides of the ring. Limmy goes to the top rope and raises his hand in victory as Mark goes to the center of the ring and slowly begins to take his sunglasses off as he spreads his arms out with a smirk as ‘Gimme The Prize’ fades out. ‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean and Migos then play up as Maxwell makes his way out to the stage as well. He’s wearing a luxurious leather jacket as he rolls up his sleeve to show his many gold watches. He begins to take a moment to count each and every one of them before flaunting his many pieces of jewelry and making his way down to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents, first… from Las Vegas, Nevada… weighing in at 250 pounds… PRINCE WEALTHY… MAXWELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Maxwell his EAW run has started off a bit rocky for lack of a better word, but all EAW greats manage to bounce themselves back up onto their feet and push on and whos knows that might stay the same for him. I would not take that away from him especially not because of his ignorance, no matter how much that weighs as a factor.
James Peters: But also don’t take away the fact he also has heightened wrestling skills. He can put on a damn match to say the least and that was shown last week, the question is can he still pull the same momentum and bring himself to a win? I would not take that away from him because he’s very talented and can probably push these opponents to their absolute limit, there’s no sliver of doubt that he doesn’t have a chance to win and we’ll see that tonight.
Persephone: Oh what is he fucking going to do James, pay them? Believe me zero of the people in that ring have wrestling skill, it’s going to be a borefest beyond no other and we’re just here to witness it, lucky there’s no one else here, saves them the misery.
(Maxwell begins to slowly step up the steel steps taking his time before entering the ring. He goes up to the top rope keeping a smug look on his face as he does so as he spreads his arms out wide and looks up at the ceiling before looking around and jumping off the top rope taking a look at The Grand Athletes but having no fret and no fear over them before heading to his corner and leaning against it as ‘Slide’ fades out. ‘The Body of an American’ by The Pogues then plays up as Gavin McArdle makes his way out to the stage. He twirls a hurling stick around for a moment taking his time as he does so. He looks around the arena giving a bright smile as he begins to make his way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And his partner… from Monaghan, Ireland… weighing in at 220 pounds… SMACKERS… GAVIN MCARDLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Gavin it seems despite everything he’s the more rational person in this match. Although he may play the part of someone that holds pride in their country for sure there are a lot more layers in the onion than you’d expect. He has many dirty handed tactics just like the rest up his sleeve, he may seem like the weak link but really he’s just a diamond in the rough the way you look at it.
James Peters: And that’s what’s probably going to bring him to a win if he does happen to do so. You see the thing in common with all the competitors in this match is that they all won’t be afraid to get their hands dirty, and we’re about to see that first-hand tonight. It doesn’t take away from the other factors that might bring Gavin to victory, he’s a very bare-knuckle brawler and I’m sure he’s going to make, use, and capitalize on that to possibly give him some sort of leverage in this matchup and there’s no doubt either way that he’ll make a lasting mark by the time this is said and done.
Persephone: I’ve already expressed how much I hate red-heads, there should be no different changes in my opinions and I’m sure you already get at where I’m alluding to here.
(Gavin begins to make his way to the ring at a quick pace as he goes up the steel steps and into the ring. His slight smile turns into a serious face of determination as he seems to be ready for a fight in his debut. He begins to make his way to his corner as he tries to plan and strategize with Maxwell who is obviously rejecting any sort of idea to do so as ‘The Body of an American’ fades out. After a while the people starting begin to go the frontlines as the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this tag team match is underway! Mark Macias and Gavin McArdle are starting this match off for both sides as they begin to quickly circle around. MARK RUNNING AT GAVIN ALREADY AND KICKING HIM RIGHT IN THE LEG SENDING HIM FACE FIRST TO THE GROUND! Emphatic start by Mark as he quickly brings Gavin up and sends him into an Irish whip into the ropes! BUT GAVIN WITH A SHOULDER BARGE TAKING MARK DOWN TO HIS BACK!
James Peters: Mark in pain as he begins to slowly roll away but not for Gavin is grabbing him and pulling him up to his feet as he does so. Mark trying to push away trying to gain some distance before Gavin is able to attack! BUT GAVIN WITH A VICIOUS DROPKICK TAKING MARK DOWN TO THE GROUND AS HE RUNS TOWARDS HIM! Mark quickly getting up though as this doesn’t seem to be a bright idea from ‘Double M’ in his book. EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! RIGHT TO THE JAW TAKES MARK DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: Ohhh rich bitch is feeling that light tap to the jaw now as he’s taken to the ground. Gavin isn’t stopping as he quickly mounts Mark ew that’s disgusting. Why is he lightly tapping him now? Is this a lousy attempt at a ground and pound? This is disappointing, this whole match is disappointing, what the hell is new?
Rich Russillo: BUT GAVIN ISN’T STOPPING WITH THOSE FIST SLAMMING RIGHT INTO THE NOSE OF MARK MACIAS AS THE REF IS FORCED TO BREAK THEM APART! Mark looks absolutely hurt as he’s grabbing his face in frantic fear as he does so. Gavin quickly running towards Mark as he does that. MARK MANAGING TO THROW GAVIN THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE! Gavin quickly rolling in as Mark is readying up! MARK WITH A BIG BOOT TAKING GAVIN DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: Gavin slowly pulling himself to his feet as Mark is taking a rest out of the corner as early in this match Gavin has took alot out of Mark. Gavin quickly boosting up as he runs to the corner! MARK MOVING OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE GAVIN CAN CONNECT! Gavin falling into the corner as Mark runs! AWESOME CLOTHESLINE! MARK WITH A SMOOTH CLOTHESLINE AS HE FALLS ONTO THE APRON AND QUICKLY ENTERS THE RING! MArk quickly entering the ring as he grabs Gavin quickly. GAVIN WITH A ELBOW RIGHT TO THE GUT OF MARK! Gavin turning around as Mark is stunned! GAVIN CONNECTING WITH A STALLING SUPLEX! Gavin bringing Mark up to his feet as he throws him into his corner!
Persephone: Rich bitch is tagged in apparently since leprechaun is too lazy to do anything. Tom Cruise getting sent to the ropes by leprechaun as rich bitch sets him up. He connects with possibly one of the weakest forearms I have ever seen my gawd. Yet apparently that left a mark as Tom Cruise falls to his knees as rich bitch grabs him. Rich bitch transitions it into a spinebuster that probably didn’t even hurt. Oh now he’s going for the pin, CONNECT WITH A MOVE DIPSHIT!
Rich Russillo: MARK KICKS OUT! Mark has been taking a heavy beating so far in this match as he continues to persist as he’s trying to drag himself over to Limmy who is practically begging to be tagged in now as Mark is clawing through thick and thin in order to make the tag! But Maxwell sees that as he quickly brings Mark up to his feet! BUT MARK KICKING MAXWELL IN THE GUT AND CONNECTING WITH A SNAP DDT! Mark continuing to crawl over as he leaps!
James Peters: LIMMY MONAGHAN IS IN THIS MATCH! He’s boosting himself forward as he runs past a kneeling Maxwell and to the ropes and back as Maxwell is stunned! LIMMY WITH A RUNNING KNEE ABSOLUTELY RAMMING HIS KNEE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF MAXWELL SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! He’s not done yet as well as he keeps the boost of life up as he pulls himself up to his feet as Maxwell follows! RUNNING FACEBUSTER TAKES MAXWELL BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: Maxwell pulling himself up again slowly as he grabs ahold of the ropes as Limmy runs to the ropes and back looking to take him out! LIMMY SENDING MAXWELL OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE APRON! Maxwell slowly pulling himself up using the ropes as he grabs ahold of it just in case and Limmy quickly begins to follow him. MAXWELL WITH A STIFF FOREARM RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF LIMMY STUNNING HIM JUST FOR A MOMENT! Limmy being forced to move back as Maxwell climbs up to the top rope! MAXWELL WITH A CROSSBODY AS HE QUICKLY TURNS THE TABLES IN THIS MATCHUP!
James Peters: Limmy staggering up to his feet as well as Maxwell is waiting for him! SITOUT X-PLEX! NO! LIMMY REVERSES OUT OF THE FERRARI OVERDRIVE BEFORE IT CAN CONNECT! Maxwell taking a spin around as Limmy waits for him!
Limmy Monaghan (Off-Mic): STOP!
Maxwell (Off-Mic): What do you want loser?
Persephone: Fucking class acts…
Rich Russillo: LIMMY WITH A “STOP” ENZUIGIRI! NO! BUT MAXWELL IS TWO STEPS AHEAD AS HE DUCKS UNDER AND LITERALLY FLIPS LIMMY AND TAKES HIM DOWN FACE FIRST TO THE GROUND! Limmy is stunned but not for long as that doesn’t mean he’s not going to get up to his feet. MAXWELL ATTEMPTING FERRARI OVERDRIVE AGAIN! NO! BUT LIMMY REVERSES IT! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK TAKES MAXWELL QUICKLY DOWN TO THE GROUND AS LIMMY GOES FOR THE PIN!
James Peters: MAXWELL POWERS OUT! Maxwell quickly beginning to drag himself over to his corner slowly reaching his arm out as he does so to get the tag to Gavin McArdle. BUT LIMMY STOMPING ON MAXWELL’S HAND! He’s smudging it around the wrestling ring as this is clearly a low point. BUT LIMMY STOMPING ON IT ONCE MORE! Limmy sees an opportunity here as he grabs Maxwell and begins to drag him to his corner.
Persephone: Tag to Tom Cruise man do you know how boring this match is? I mean all they’re doing is tagging their partners in like pussies, do you see my logic? Well it looks like their going to do a cooperative move, CAN THEY EVEN DO THAT?!
Limmy Monaghan (Off-Mic): YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO DO A WRESTLING MOVE WHEN I CONSECUTIVELY DO IT YOU WANKER!
Mark Macias (Off-Mic): SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND LET ME DO WHAT I DO BEST!
Rich Russillo: BUT MAXWELL SLIPPING AWAY! HE CLOBBERS DOWN BOTH MARK AND LIMMY OUT OF NOWHERE BEFORE THEY CAN DO ANYTHING ELSE TO TAKE THEM DOWN AS IT’S CLEAR THE GRAND ATHLETES ARE PRETTY DYSFUNCTIONAL IN THIS MATCH! Maxwell quickly turns as he runs to his croner!
James Peters: MAXWELL TAGS GAVIN INTO THE MATCH! GAVIN QUICKLY PUSHING HIMSELF FORWARD AS HE RUNS AT MARK! GAVIN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX AS MARK LANDS RIGHT ON HIS NECK! Mark bouncing right off the canvas as Gavin is waiting for him! A TASTE OF MONAGHAN! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BACKBREAKER AS GAVIN QUICKLY GOES FOR THE PIN ON MARK!
Persephone: HAH! Absolute pussy. So it appears F-Tier Movie Star kicked out but that irish dude really doesn’t give a fuck does he? Nah I really don’t care that’s his fault I would’ve pummeled the everlasting crap out of him.
Rich Russillo: WHAT?! MAXWELL TAGGING IN! GAVIN WAS GOING TO FINISH HIM BUT MAXWELL HAD TO STEAL THE SPOTLIGHT!
Maxwell (Off-Mic): THIS IS MY MATCH!
Gavin McArdle: SO BE IT YOU OAF!
James Peters: Gavin rolling out of the ring? He’s leaving Maxwell out to dry! Gavin saying fuck it as Maxwell could not be more questioned by this! WAIT! WAIT! LOOK OVER THERE! THE GRAND ATHLETES! THEY’RE BOTH WAITING FOR MAXWELL AS HE TURNS AROUND! CREDITS ROLL! ROCKETMAN! THE OSCAR AWARD CONNECTS! HOW THEY WERE ABLE TO DO THAT IS BEYOND ME! MARK IS THE LEGAL MAN AS HE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE PIN WITH JOY PLASTERED ALL OVER HIS FACE AS HE DOES SO! COULD THIS BE IT?!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Gimme The Prize’ plays up once more as Mark Macias sits up with a absolutely shocked face as he probably doesn’t even know they won. Limmy quickly runs over and pulls him up to his feet as it’s clear they’re both in shock. They both raise their own hands in victory as they continue to celebrate with a burst of energy as they’re clearly excited about this. Gavin McArdle is shown standing on the ramp watching the whole thing play out as Maxwell looks up in shock and confusion)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here are your winners… THE GRAND ATHLETES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: Wow…. I could, NOT CARE LESS! If I was one of those sweaty keyboard warriors like Jake Mercer right now I would rate this a solid 0/10 because I have never seen such a boring tag match coming out of these people.
Rich Russillo: Ignore my love, she’s on her period.
Rich Russillo: THE GRAND ATHLETES COMING OUT WITH A GRAND VICTORY IN IT’S OWN RIGHT! Both teams were dysfunctional I could say, but in reality The Grand Athletes took advantage of Maxwell’s ego and managed to take him down for the pin! Whilst this may seem pretty exciting to accomplish, it doesn’t seem that the other team is taking this so well.
(Maxwell is shaking in anger as he quickly rolls out of the ring and runs towards Gavin. Gavin not realizing get’s easily tackled down to the ground by Maxwell. Both of them are quickly trading punches to one another as The Grand Athletes stop their celebration to watch. Officials and security quickly run down and try to split them up. They manage to finally pull them apart as they’re both yelling at eachother as Voltage fades out to elsewhere)
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: A commercial is shown for Harper Lee. She is seen holding up a sign walking across the streets of Louisiana trying to find Veena Adams and wherever in the world she may be. #VEENAFEARSHARPER)
(The camera fades into a scene of an empty, crowdless, then into one of the middle of the ring. Bella Braxton stands in the middle, still smiling all the same. “Stabbing in the Dark” by Ice Nine Kills then blasts through the speakers as Komatsu comes out, still walking menacingly all the same in spite of the missing crowd. He walks towards the ring imposingly with as much grace as he did when he had walked towards it before – which was to say, no grace whatsoever.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! INTRODUCING FIRST! From Kabuchiko, Tokyo, Japan! Weighing in at 251 POOUNDSS. . . .HE IS THE “SERPENT KING,” KOOOMATSUUU OGAAWWAA!!!!
Persephone: Oh God this asshat again. This guy really thinks that if he breaks a few skulls and throws out a few cheap jumpscares that he’s some kind of threat? Slasher films haven’t been hyped up since the 1900s. We all know this dumbass is all talk and no bark. Plus, he’s Asian – you know he’s bound to have that goddamn CORONA!
Rich Russillo: While I do adore your opinion, my lady, I think that there’s value to be had in watching someone like Komatsu. . . viciously tear his opponents piece by piece! He’s got the heart, at the very least, and the eagerness of someone who is to head into this place. We used to be called Extreme for a reason, and every time he is in the ring, Ogawa shows that side of himself at full force.
(“Midnight Rider” by A Memory Down then plays, after which Kristopher Killbourne walks out in his regular attire which shows off his tattoos. He acts smug, as well as sadistic, licking at his hand before heading towards the ring, where Komatsu’s eyes widen at the sight of a kindred spirit.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Parts Unknown! Weighing in at 264 POOUNDSSS. . . KRRRIIIISSSTOOOPPPHEEEER KILLLLBOOUUURRNNEEE!!!
James Peters: This really is a battle between the crazies. This is like watching Norman Bates fight Michael Myers, or Jason Voorhees and Freddy! That movie was terrible but I’m highly sure that this won’t be. Despite his initial loss, Killbourne still has a long way to go ahead of himself which means that there’s a lot of potential for him in this business.
Persephone: Why does this company keep giving chances and growing the “potential” of serial killers? Seriously?
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Not sure honey but we get paid, so I can’t really argue! This here is the beginning of this intriguing match-up. . . AND KRISTOPHER KILLBOURNE AND KOMATSU OGAWA IMMEDIATELY GO AFTER ONE ANOTHER RIGHT FROM THE GET GO! THEY’RE DUKING IT OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, RAPIDLY THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS WITH NO SIGN THAT ONE OF THEM IS PLANNING TO STOP! WAIT! KILLBOURNE IS WINNING OUT THE EXCHANGE! Komatsu is slowing down as Killbourne keeps throwing those brutal right hand shots to the side of the Serpent King’s head. . . OH! He follows it up with a hammer elbow that brings his opponent to a knee! Kristopher then runs off, bounces off the ropes. . . AND GOES FOR A ROARING FOREARM! KOMATSU GOT IT BAD, BUT HE’S STILL UP! OGAWA IS ACTUALLY LAUGHING AT KRISTOPHER! HE’S SHAKING BUT FIRED UP!
Komatsu Ogawa (no mic): COME ON YOU GODDAMN BASTARD!
Persephone: Nutcase. Actual nutcase. And he’s ugly too! It seems Killbourne has the same idea as me as he runs off the ropes again, LOOKING FOR A BIG FOOT TO PUT HIM DOWN – BUT KOMATSU DUCKS IT! THE FAT JAPANESE MAN NOW HIMSELF DUCKS AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES. . . KRISTOPHER GOING FOR A CLOTHESLINE! DUCKED AGAIN! Killbourne turns around – ONLY TO FACE A LOUD DISCUS ELBOW SMASH THAT REVERBERATES ACROSS THIS EMPTY ARENA! HAHA! Rightfully so, these types of people don’t deserve audiences. Killbourne is now on all fours, still trying his best to get up. . . BUT OGAWA PICKS HIM UP AGAIN! SPIKE DDT! HE STILL KEEPS THE HEAD INTACT DESPITE PULVERIZING IT ALREADY! Ogawa rises up. . .as slow as Xander Payne in the morning. . . AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS, PLACING THE HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER PLANTS HIM FIRMLY ON THE MAT!
James Peters: That was a brutal beginning by Komatsu Ogawa, and it looks as if now Killbourne’s already down and out! Wow! Ogawa bends over, looking at his groggy opponent. . AND PUTS HIM DOWN AGAIN WITH A BIG BOOT RIGHT TO THE FACE! YOU COULD HEAR THAT FROM A MILE AWAY! Ogawa now starting. . . to twitch? What the hell is he doing?! Ogawa doing one of his signature. . . maneuvers, probably to unsettle the already unsettled Killbourne even more, like a predator chomping at the bit to make its prey fear! Killbourne uses the ropes to try and bring himself back up again, BUT OGAWA WILL NOT RELENT! BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX BY THE OUROBORUS! HE DOESN’T LET GO OF THE WAISTLOCK, KILLBOURNE IS WOBBLY!
Rich Russillo: I don’t know, I’m counting on the fact that Kristopher can pull something out right now to save himself! BUT I’M NOT SURE ANYMORE AS KOMATSU DROPS HIM WITH ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX, THIS TIME RIGHT ON HIS NECK! He will surely feel that tomorrow! KOMATSU BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE ONCE MORE! ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX – KILLBOURNE BLOCKS IT, FALLING BACK DOWN! He throws elbows at Komatsu’s arms, THEN TO HIS FACE! A HARD ELBOW FORCES KOMATSU TO LET GO! Killbourne grabs Ogawa by the arm, and irish whips him into the ropes, FOLLOWING RIGHT BEHIND HIM! ROLLING BACK ELBOW LIKE THE SOUND OF A MOUSETRAP CONNECTS, KNOCKING THE SPIT OUT OF OGAWA’S MOUTH! He falls forward. . .RIGHT INTO HIS OPPONENT’S ARMS! KILLBOURNE GOES FOR THE ROLLING SPEAR!
Persephone: KOMATSU POWERS THROUGH AND DOESN’T LET THE “FIRST SLICE” CUT TO HIM! He’s still a filthy bitch, don’t get me wrong, but it’s interesting to see a chimp like him manage to strongarm his way out of that other guy’s signature! KOMATSU IS HOLDING KILLBOURNE. . . HE GOES BEHIND HIM! ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION USING WHAT STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT IN THOSE BRITTLE JAPANESE BONES TO LIFT KILLBOURNE UP! THEN HE DROPS HIM INTO A DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER! JOR – SHIT I CAN’T PRONOUNCE THIS! WHAT KIND OF PRETENTIOUS CORONA-INFECTED DOUCHEBAG NAMES A MOVE –
James Peters: JORMUNGANDR, AFTER THE WORLD SERPENT FROM NORSE MYTHOLOGY! An apt name that does what it can to bring this sadistic Kristopher down, and he looks to be out! Komatsu eyeing the unconscious body – but not going for a pin! He’s shaking his head, looking at the practically defeated man before him. . . then he begins to smile! Oh God, I think we might know what this means! Whenever this man is enjoying anything it’s never bound to be something pleasant! Komatsu now is in the corner, looking towards the fallen opponent slowly but surely make his way up. . .
Rich Russillo: AND HE CHARGES! MASAKARI! RUNNING LARIAT DECAPITATES KRISTOPHER LIKE THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES, CAUSING HIM TO LAND RIGHT ON HIS NECK ONCE MORE! HE FOLDS LIKE AN ACCORDION AND APPEARS TO BE DONE! BUT KOMATSU ISN’T DONE! HE LOOKS DOWN TO THE DOWNED KRISTOPHER. . . AND GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND! SNAKE BITE! A FEROCIOUS DRAGON SLEEPER HOLD, WITH BODY SCISSORS TO GO! HE HAS THAT LOCKED IN TIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, KRISTOPHER HAS NOWHERE TO GO! HE’S TRYING DESPERATELY TO REACH OUT, FIND HIS BEARINGS OR SOMETHING TO GRAB HOLD. . . BUT HE DOESN’T! HE TAPS! HE TAPS BEFORE HE PASSES OUT! KOMATSU OGAWA HAS WON!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Stabbing in the Dark” plays again throughout all of the speakers of the empty arena as Komatsu rises to his feet, his arms up in victory while Kristopher grasps at his throat, trying to find his breath.)
Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER. . . . KOMMAAAATSUUUUU OOOOGGAAAAAWWWAAAA!!!!!!
Persephone: How the hell do these stupid Asians keep getting the upper hand over us?! Well, I suppose if there was something I had to say, it was that this match didn’t go on for any longer. Thank God Komatsu won because I am not getting paid to watch a budget horror movie death battle!
James Peters:. . . you’re literally describing what EAW is like on a daily basis.
Persephone: Shut the fuck up.
Rich Russillo: :wow: Fantastic opinions, gorgeous eyes aside. . . this was a good match-up that really was as violent as it was propped up to be! In the end though, Kristopher takes another loss while Komatsu grabs a victory he has probably wanted for quite a while! He looked good while doing it too, countering practically every move and managed to take Killbourne down swiftly and with efficacy.
(The camera goes back to the ring where Killbourne has stood back up, He’s clutching the back of his neck, looks to Komatsu and turns. . . before Ogawa walks up behind him, grabbing him by the shoulder. The two look at one another for a few moments. . .before smiling sadistically, with knowing eyes. They shake hands, acknowledging this moment before Killbourne heads back and Komatsu rases one arm in the ring. They look at each other strange, continuing to smile.)
(Voltage fades back into the backstage area as a figure is seen walking through the halls of the backstage. The camera slowly pans up to show the face of Dr. Bethany Blue as she makes her way to a location. She has a bright, cheery smile on her face as she does so before making her way to a door. The door reads “Captain Charisma” as it’s clear the business she’s going to be here for. She slowly knocks on it as he beckons her into the room. The Doc struts into the office and takes a seat right across the desk from where Captain Charisma himself is sitting, he straightens a few of his papers before looking up at her with a smile)
Captain Charisma: Welcome Bethany, I see you know why you’re here?
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well, clearly I do! We’re here to talk about that pretty win I got last week right on Voltage? That nice Unique Opportunity I got as I climbed the ladder to victory and beat some of, what you’d consider being, of course, some better than others, in my opinion, some of Voltage’s stars, right? Pretty neat? Isn’t that great? Not only do I have that opportunity which I’m sure you’re going to disclose to me very, very soon and who knows maybe even state right here and now, but I also secured myself a Specialist Championship match at Grand Rampage haven’t I? Isn’t that a double victory, for both of us to say the least? Winning an opportunity for god knows what, and of course as a definite, bringing the Specialist Championship back to Voltage where it properly belongs, doesn’t that get you excited?
(Captain Charisma slowly nods politely listening to every word the Doctor speaks as she takes a pause for a moment to reflect on it with a face of joy before beginning to speak once more keeping a smug look on her face as she does so)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Sure, I could say there will be doubts about my statement. That no matter that there’s always going to be a way where Darcy will get something over on me and raise that Specialist Championship above me at Grand Rampage, but you wouldn’t want that right Matt? Yeah, I know you want the title over to Voltage more than anything else I can see it in your face, that glimmer of joy that shows when I speak about it and how it’s going to come back to your land, add a little more gold to the pedestal, to say the least, doesn’t that excite you in any way? Besides, who would want Darcy May Morgan as champion in this state of the time anyway? In the way I look at it, she is under quarantine back in Peru, isn’t she? She’s strapped up to a ventilator for god sake and who knows, she might be contaminated?! That is not a Specialist Champion you would want, hell that is not anyone EAW would want either, tainting their line of work because they decide to cough on another one of their colleagues, someone that doesn’t abide such precious medical code, especially in this epidemic that we’re forced to struggle through? This is not something to laugh over as Darcy did, this is a serious matter, and look where it brought her? Who even knows whether that bee-itch is safe to wrestle or not-
Captain Charisma: Woah, Woah… let’s not spread any rumors that we don’t definitely know the answer of. I’m sure Darcy would love more than anything to be in the ring with you at Grand Rampage, we are not sure if she is able to or not, but it’s best you do not try to provoke anything. This is no place to spread false information about another elitist.
(Dr. Blue’s face slowly turns from a smirk of cockiness to more annoyance than anything else. She gives a reluctant nod for a moment as he speaks)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well ok then, but at the very least do what you brought me here to say, tell me what my ‘Unique Opportunity’ is.
Captain Charisma: Well frankly your Unique Opportunity goes as follows Bethany. You see your Specialist Championship match has a little bit of a weighing factor now because of it. You see at Grand Rampage when you face Darcy, you get to pick whatever stipulation you want for the match, I’ll leave you be to that if you care to state it right here.
(Bethany’s face of annoyance turns to a bright smile as it’s clear the power is in her hands when it comes to her own match at Grand Rampage. She begins to open her mouth with a devious smirk but closes it for a moment. She decides to think about it for a moment as silence alludes in the Voltage Commissioner’s office as she decides very carefully. Captain Charisma obviously lets her have her time of thinking as he doesn’t want to rush the answer so much)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well, I’ve made the decision to do this much to tell you right now. I’ve decided I will make my decision on Dynasty, I’ll utilize the opportunity there and that will be your answer.
(Captain Charisma shines a trademark bright smile as Bethany says that as she gives a nod and quietly stands up and makes her way out, she’s clearly more happy than anything as she does so. The last shot is of the door closing as the camera fades out of the room to elsewhere)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next we have a huge one on one match between Jesse Barlow and Dorian Cade! Stay tuned to find out who is going to win this!
(The lights go out as ‘Day of the Lords’ by Joy Division starts echoing throughout the arena. Red smoke is popping on the stage as Dorian Cade shows up and starts walking down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Salem Massachusetts, weighing in at 270 pounds, “Blood Money” Dorian Cade!
James Peters: We’ve seem all sorts of weirdos in EAW throughout the years but Dorian Cade and his Vampire appeal might beat them all! This guy gives me chills everytime I see him compete! He is a monster!
Rich Russillo: Woah! How dare you! Vampires have souls too, you know! Besides, he doesn’t seem so pale to me. You better show some respect to Dorian Cade because tonight he has the chance to pull an upset victory over this established EAW talent, Jesse Barlow. It will be interesting to see how Dorian is going to stack against such an experienced opponent! It’s time to find out!
(Lights are set back to normal as Dorian’s theme fades out.)
(A few seconds later, “The path” by Senses Fail can be heard. Jesse Barlow shows up on stage accompanied by Hannah Marin. The two are hand in hand. Jesse doesn’t seem to care about his opponent as his eyes are all for Hannah. The two then start walking down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent, from Hoboken New Jersey, weighing in at 210 pounds the Virtuous! JESSE BARLOW!
Rich Russillo: Alright, look. Jesse said it earlier this week, Wrestling in front of an empty arena is not the same thing as doing that in front of a sold out crowd. On that we can all agree. Tonight he is facing Dorian Cade because he HAS to, not because he wants to. And he is going to make sure this match will be as short as possible!
Persephone: Sounds like a good thing to me!
(Jesse’s theme fades out as the cameras focuses on Hannah at ringside)
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: Here we go, the match is underway. Jesse Barlow and Dorian Cade lock up in the middle of the ring, it looks like a collar and elbow tie up here. Dorian Cade is using his strength to push Jesse all the way to the corner as the referee gets in the way to make him release the hold. Dorian does but… wait a minute! WHAT AN EYE POKE BY JESSE BARLOW! I can’t believe this! We are thirty seconds into this match and Jesse is already bending the rules in his favor.
James Peters: The referee doesn’t sound happy but Hannah certainly is! Dorian Cade stumbles back as he is stunned and now Jesse Barlow has a chance to capitalize! He closes in… Ouch! What a Snapmare! But he is not done yet… DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF DORIAN CADE’S HEAD.
Persephone: You are telling me someone who has been around as long as Jesse Barlow has to cheat to put a newcomer such as Dorian Cade down? Pffff…. That’s just embarrassing if you ask me.
James Peters: That’s the point, nobody asked you! Quick cover from Jesse… Nope! Dorian Cade kicks out almost immediately. Dorian Cade now trying to get back on his feet but Jesse Barlow doesn’t want to let up the pressure. Jesse Barlow bounces off the ropes and charges in, NO! Dorian Cade just ducked underneath… OOF WHAT A BIG BOOT BY DORIAN CADE OFF THE REBOUND!
Rich Russillo: A terrified look on Hannah Marin’s face as Jesse Barlow drops down to the canvas hard. “Blood Money” Dorian Cade wastes no time and immediately locks him in a Headlock. Jesse has nowhere to go, the Headlock is locked in tight in the middle of the ring. Jesse now is trying to get back on his feet… OOF What a stiff elbow to the guts of Dorian… but he refuses to let go! Hannah is trying what she can to cheer him on! Jesse with another shot! He’s free now! NEVERMIND! I SPOKE TOO SOON! DORIAN JUST PLANTED HIM WITH A SIDE WALK SLAM! THE COVER….
James Peters: Kickout! He Kickout out easily. Dorian Cade is still on the offensive though, he picks Jesse Barlow up and whips him all the way to the opposite corner. Jesse hits the turnbuckles hard but he is still on his feet… Dorian Cade charges in! NO! Jesse Barlow got out of the way just in time, nobody’s home! Dorian Cade stumbles back, he is stunned… Jesse Barlow runs towards the ropes and runs towards his opponent… ABOLISHER! THE SPEAR CONNECTS! JESSE GOT ALL OF IT!
Persephone: Why are you screaming?!?!
Rich Russillo: Jesse has not enough strength to follow up though, he is still gasping for air. However he is back on his feet now so he still has the upper hand. He must get the most out of it. Dorian Cade is stunned, Jesse picks him up by his hair. What? He is laughing! Jesse Barlow is in control and is certainly not afraid of showing the pure disrespect he has towards his opponent. Jesse now goes for his stiff punch, REPENT… NO! DORIAN JUST GRABBED HIS WRIST AND STOPPED HIM! JESSE TRIES TO OUTPOWER HIM BUT TO NO AVAIL! DORIAN IS JUST STRONGER! DORIAN PUSHES JESSE AWAY AND THEN HITS HIS DEVILS DEAL! CODEBREAKER CONNECTED! COVER…
James Peters: He kicked out! Jesse Barlow kicked out! The contest is heating up as these two are pulling out all the stops tonight. Definitely an impressive show from Dorian Cade who apparently has no remorse nor fear! Dorian now is stalking Jesse Barlow as he stumbles back to his feet… He picks him up! Are going to see the Blood Money? Wait a minute! Jesse Barlow managed to free himself from the hold, he lands right behind him! Jesse grabs Dorian’s arm, RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE! HE GOT ALL OF IT! HE CALLS THAT NEVERMORE! HANNAH MARIN IS JUMPING IN EXCITEMENT AT RINGISDE AS JESSE GOES FOR THE COVER….
Rich Russillo: Wait! Jesse just picked Dorian’s shoulders up. What the heck is going on here? Jesse Barlow looks down on Dorian Cade with a devilish look on his face. Dorian is completely out, that Ripcord Knee was connected to perfection! But it looks like Jesse wants to send a statement tonight!
Persephone: What a dummy! He had the match won!
James Peters: What is he thinking? Jesse Barlow is now going to the top turnbuckle, Dorian is still out in the middle of the ring. No way! JESSE WITH THE 650 SPLASH! FEAR OF GOD LANDED PERFECTLY! IT MUST BE OVER NOW! THE COVER!
(DING DING DING)
(The Path by Senses Fail blasts through the speakers)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… The Virtuous, Jesse Barlow!
Persephone: Is this nightmare over yet? Thank goodness. I cannot believe we make people pay for this.
Rich Russillo: We make them pay to see your beautiful smile… *wink*
James Peters: Anyways! Impressive performance from Jesse Barlow, who asserted his dominance on Voltage by making quick work of a very interesting newcomer, Dorian Cade. With Grand Rampage on the horizon, I wonder what’s next for this young man’s career!
Rich Russillo: Agreed! It will be interesting to see where Jesse Barlow will go from here! He definitely reminded us tonight why he is one of the top dogs of Voltage! Dorian has nothing to be ashamed of, though. He simply has to regroup and try again another day!
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: A commercial is shown showcasing Grand Rampage, most importantly the Grand Rampage match as a vignette is shown with many clips of the Voltage competitors in that matchup)
(Voltage comes back to the interviewing portion of the backstage area in the arena as Sofia Clarke is seen. She has a big smile on her face as she holds the mic up to her mouth and begins to speak)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome, Colby Sol.
(Colby Sol walks into frame dressed in his ring gear as his match is right after this, yet he took some time to do this interview. He has a smile as he gives a nod to Sofia before giving a charming look to the camera before Sofia continues to speak)
Sofia Clarke: Last week Jesse Barlow gave you an offering, to say the least. To join him so he can “cure” you in some way because of your attack on him the prior week beforehand, and he gave you a week to do so. Now that the week has elapsed you’ve come here tonight to say your words to him. Do you happen to have a response for him?
Colby Sol: Well it’s pretty simple and I can clear it up, you see when I attacked Jesse Barlow after our match it wasn’t a mistake. It wasn’t something just out of a burst of rage or anger, or something uncalled for such reasons because of it, it was because I was there to make a statement. Make a statement to Jesse Barlow that despite your bickering and words that attempt to take me down like daggers they will not keep me down for a moment, they never do. That’s what I do, I don’t let stupid, pretentious words like Jesse Barlow’s spew into my brain with the awareness that it’s all a false doing. Now he thinks he can bring me to glory, he thinks he can make me some sort of better person than I already have if I simply join him. Now you’d expect it to be an obvious answer here but it’s taken me awhile to process. Whilst I do hear his words and whilst I do take it into consideration, something in my gut will always say, no. Whilst obviously the saying strength in numbers plays a great role in my thinking, I always thought of myself as The Lone Sol That Walks The Road. So I do have an answer for you Sofia, I decline Jesse Barlow’s request.
(Colby looks on with a smile as he turns his head to Sofia. She opens her mouth and is about to speak again but not for long because of the sound of a throat clearing his heard. Jesse Barlow slowly makes his way into the frame on the opposite side of wear Colby is standing at the moment. He has a toothpick in his mouth along with his sunglasses on even though his match was just previously, he still wears his in-ring attire but possesses on his entrance attire as well as it’s clear his face is not of anger because of Colby’s answer, rather a neutral stance on things. Hannah Marin is close by as she stands close to Jesse, Jesse gives a nod before beginning to speak)
Jesse Barlow: Of course as always, we understand. We’re used to this type of dissent, of course, it’s nothing much. You’d expect me to be angered, you’d expect me to be steaming from the ears and coming right here to punch you right in the face, but that is not the case. You see, the reason both me and Hannah put out the offer in the first place is that we see the potential. We see the potential you hold despite everything you’ve endeavored to do, that’s why we try to find the light in the dim place when we declaim, and that’s why I held out my hand to you, like an olive branch. Don’t take this as a sign of acceptance for your response though, we’re not going to walk away and leave you be like that. Because angered that can’t be controlled, is a disappointment just waiting to be met by the doer. That’s why I’m going to be the generous soul I am and put out the same offer once more to you. I’ll give you another week to think about it, Colby, make your decision gently. Although we might be met with the same answer because your gut says no, “Don’t let the evil Jesse Barlow subdue you into a false sign of confidence” that is not the case. I know deep down, you know the right decision is clear, evident, bright as day, just waiting on you Colby.
(Jesse turns and begins to take his leave of the interview area as Hannah stays behind for a moment. Hannah gives a wink before turning away and following Jesse as well. It only leaves Colby Sol and Sofia Clarke there by themselves. Both of them are silent as they’re at a loss for words about what to say. Colby opens his mouth but slowly closes it as he walks away to think some more about the offer Jesse put out as Voltage fades out to elsewhere)
James Peters: Welcome back to EAW’s hottest weekly episodic television program, Sunday night Voltage! It’s been quite the night, but the best is yet to come, because coming up next, a fatal five way bout between some of the most prolific competitors this brand has ever seen. Oh, boy, I cannot wait, coming up next, Charlie Marr, Terry Chambers, Alun Wyn Jones, Colby Sol, and Grizzly Bear Rocco will do battle! An early glimpse of what’s to come on April 18/19, at Grand Rampage!
Rich Russillo: I can’t believe we’re getting this sure to be classic right before Grand Rampage. Only on voltage folks! What an opportunity for all five of these men, as well. To leave Voltage with a victory on the go home show before one of EAW’s largest events, surely will launch the momentum of any of these men to the stars. It’ll simply come down to who wants it the most! Who is the hungriest, who’s starving for an opportunity and who’s willing to fight to their very last breath in that ring. Every competitor in this match carries accolades on their belt, but they all recognize the fact that their past accomplishments won’t carry them to glory. It’s their continued grit and work ethic that will bring them to the promised land, that will aid them in unlocking their truest potential.
Persephone: Ughhhhh, the sound of your voices continue to irritate my immaculate ears. You know why these men are so desperate? Because they’re all washed up has-beens. You know who’s gonna win this match? Not who wants it the most, but whoever recognizes the fact that their careers are in a downward spiral of losses and wants to rejuvenate themselves. Either way, they’ve seen their highest of highs. For one of these men, a possible opportunity to show the world why they’re still the prime talent on Voltage, but for the other four? Well, the other four deserve whatever punishment they get.
(The camera pans to Bella Braxton, who’s awaiting the arrival of all five competitors.)
Bella Braxton: LADIEEEESSSS ANNNDDDD GENTTLEEEMAANNNNN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FORRRR ONEEE FALLLLL…
Bella Braxton: AND IT IS A FATALLLLLLLLLLLLLL FIVEEEE WAAAAYYYYY MATTCCHHHH!!!!
(‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta begins to play, as “The Libertine ” Charlie Marr’s vile presence begins to make his way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton; INTRODUCING FIRST….WRESTLING OUT OF LONDON, IN THE UNNIIIITTTEDDDD KIIIINNNGGDOOOMMMM….WEIGHING IN AT 240 POUNDS….CHARRRRLLLIIIEEEEEEEE “MAAIIIIIIINNN EEEVVVVVEENNNTTTTTTTT” MAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!!
James Peters: “The Libertine” certainly needs no introduction. Charlie Marr’s been wreaking havoc in EAW for years and he’s firmly set on leaving a warpath of destruction and violence wherever he goes. Marr’s not bound by any code of morality or ethics, he’s focused on one thing and one thing only, avenging his EAW World Championship defeat. And well, based off his recent performances, he has to be a favorite in this bout. Marr’s as vicious as ever and out for more blood than ever.
Rich Russillo: Couldn’t have said it better myself. Marr does not look happy tonight, but when does he ever!?!
(As Charlie Marr enters the ring, ‘I Am (All Of Me)’ by Crush 40 begins to echo throughout the arena as Colby Sol shadow boxes his way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIIIISSSS OPPONENT…FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF PITTSBURGH, PENSSYLVANNIAAA….WEIGHING IN AT 223 POUNDS….COLLLBBBYYYYYY SOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLL!!!
Rich Russillo: Colby Sol has continued to show us what he’s made of in his return to EAW. The heart and soul, no pun intended, shown every week are absolutely tremendous. We’ve spoken previously about how much of a man it takes to admit his failures, come back, and attempt to rectify them. Sol’s done more than that. He’s shown us he belongs in EAW, with the best of the best.
Persephone: Yaawwwnnnnn….Once a quitter, always a quitter. He’ll quit tonight just like he always does.
(Colby Sol rolls in the ring as ‘Never Fight A Man With A Perm’ by Idles begins to ring throughout the arena’s speakers. Alun Wyn Jones eagerly makes his way onto the stage, waiving to all the fans. )
Bella Braxton: WRESTLING OUT OF CAERPHILLY, SOUUUUTTHHHH WALLLESSSSSS….WEIGHING IN AT 212 POUNDS…. HE IS “THEEEEE WELLLLSHHHHH DRAGGONNNNN”, ALLLLLUUUUNNNNNNN WYYYNNNNNN JOOONNEESSSSS!!!!
James Peters: “The Welsh Dragon” is one of the most passionate and soulful competitors we’ve seen on this brand. He’s a generational competitor holding his family’s legacy on his shoulders, but tonight, that legacy could be in the palm of his hands. He has a prime opportunity to expand that legacy and make his family proud. This kind of win is exactly what AWJ needs.
Rich Russillo: AWJ is an incredibly skilled competitor, but just like we previously stated, it’s going to come down to who wants it the most, who’s the hungriest.
(Alun Wyn Jones enters the ring, as ‘Line up’ by Aerosmith plays “Grizzly Bear” Rocco onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: WRESTLING OUT OF BILLINGS MONTANA…WEIGHING IN AT 330 POUNDS….”GRIIIIIIZZZLLLYYYY BEEEAAARRRR” JOOOEEEE ROCCOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: This big man is more calculated than most. His immense size is complemented by a calculated and thought out game plan.
Persephone: OH PLEASE! You think this bipedal hippo in a unitard has any sort of chance in this match?! That’s genuinely hilarious.
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons begins to play as Terry Chambers presents himself in front of the audience.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENT….WEIGHING IN AT 287 POUNDS…HAILING OUT OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN….TERRRYYYYYYYY “THEEE BAARRRRBBBARRRIICCC CARRNIIIVOOOREEEE” CHAMMMMBBEEERSSSS!!!
James Peters: Prepare to be stuck in the chambers, Rich! Terry Chambers appears battle ready and looks to be walking with a purpose. He recognizes the opportunity that has been presented to him, and he’s got no intent of letting it slip through his fingers! The “Barbaric Carnivore” aims to seize the day and head into ‘Grand Rampage’ with some huge momentum on his side!
(The referee signals for the timekeeper to ring the bell, indicating the beginning of the match.)
DING! DING! DING!
James Peters: The match is officially underway! It’ll be interesting to see which strategy all five of these men choo- CHARLIE MARR STORMS JOE ROCCO WITH A BIG BOOT, SENDING JOE BACK TO THE CORNER! MARR WITH PUNCHES AND KNEES, VICIOUSLY PUNISHING JOE ROCCO, WHO DROPS DOWN TO THE CANVAS….CHARLIE MARR OFF THE ROPES, DRIVES THE KNEE INTO THE JAW OF JOE ROCCO!! WHAT A RUNNING KNEE FROM CHARLIE MARR!
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr going after the big man early, attempting to eliminate the LARGEST threat in this match. Rocco now attempting to make hsi way back to his feet, on wobbly legs….COLBY SOL DRILLS HIM WITH A DROPKICK! WHAT ATHLETICISM FROM SOL, LIKE TWO SHOTGUNS TO THE CHEST OF “GRIZZLY BEAR”! Joe Rocco still on his feet, but for how much longer….NOW JONES WITH A ‘REMAIN’ UPPERCUT! THAT EUROPEAN STYLE UPPERCUT TO THE JAW OF JOE ROCCO, ALL FOUR OF THESE MEN APPEAR TO BE STRATEGIZING TOGETHER AGAINST JOE ROCCO! CHoPPING THE BIG MAN DOWN TO SIZE!! NOW TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A LARIAT, SENDS ROCCO FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE!! TUMBLING DOWN TO THE FLOOR, ALL FOUR MEN WORKING AS ONE TO DISABLE THE TANK, JOE ROCCO!
Persephone: Look at Charlie Marr, turning his attention Colby Sol, as Terry Chambers and Alun Wyn Jones square off….AND HERE WE GO! IT’S A HOCKEY FIGHT HERE ON VOLTAGE, AN ABSOLUTE MELEE!

Rich Russillo: Now it’s Terry Chambers and Charlie Marr, one on one. But Joe Rocco attempting to make his way back into the ring, on the apron now. He’s re-entering the ring, BUT IS MET WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE LEG BY CHARLIE MARR, NOT ALLOWING ROCCO TO INSERT HIMSELF BACK INTO THIS MATCH! NOW TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A SUICIDE DIVEEEEE!!!! SPEARING JOE ROCCO BACK TO THE OUTSIDE, WHAT A MOVE FROM THE BIG MAN, TERRY CHAMBERS!

Persephone: Yeah, yeah, whatever. TERRY CHAMBERS PULLS JOE ROCCO BACK OUT OF THE RING, THEN SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! TERRY CHAMBERS SNARLS VIOLENTLY, AS HE CLEARS SPACE BETWEEN HIMSELF AND JOE ROCCO…TERRY’S GOT SOMETHING NASTY IN MIND….TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A RUNNING CANNONBALL AGAINST THE BARRICADE!!!!!

TERRY IS HOLDING COUT RIGHT NOW!! HE’S TAKEN OUT EVERY MAN IN THIS MATCH, HE’S DOMINANTLY HOLDING THE RING!! WHAT A PERFORMANCE FROM TERRY CHAMBERS!!
Rich Russillo: Terry looking to finish the match right here, possibly thinking about the ‘T-5’. A finishing move that has taken out many competitors here on Voltage. He’s lifting Charlie Marr back to his feet, could Marr be the latest to fall to Chamber’s ‘T-5’?! TERRY’S GOT CHARLIE ON HIS SHOULDERS, LOOKING TO FINISH IT! BUT CHARLIE ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR AND HE DROPS TERRY WITH A LOW BLOW!!! WHAT THE HELL!! CHARLIE MARR WITH A DISGUSTING LOW BLOWTO TERRY CHAMBERS, BUT WHAT DID WE EXPECT FROM MARR, THIS IS CLASSIC LIBERTINE!
(Charlie Marr slowly and sarcastically claps at the efforts of Terry Chambers, who’s writhing in pain.)
Rich Russillo: Joe Rocco once again trying to make his way into the ring, wearing the injuries caused by Chambers. Look at Marr, he’s laughing at Joe Rocco. Marr just shouted to Rocco “Fuck You”…AND HE DROPS JOE WITH A LOW BLOW!!! MARR WITH ANOTHER B}LOW BLOW AND NOW HE SPITS ON JOE ROCCO, WHAT DISRESPECT FROM CHARLIE MARR! A LOW BLOW IS ONE THING, BUT TO SPIT ON ANOTHER MAN!? THAT CROSSES THE LINE! BUT MARR DOESN’T SEE LINES, HE ONLY SEES PAIN AND VICTORY!

TERRY PUSHES JONES ASIDE AND LIFTS SOL UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!!!! HE’S GOT HIM, HE’S GONNA FINISH IT HERE!!! TERRY CHAMBERS IS GOING FOR THE WIN!!!! CHAMBERRSSSSS DROPPING SOL WITH THE TTTTTT-5555555555!!!!!! NOW ROCCO BACK IN, TERRY STUNS HIM WITH A A BIG BOOT!!

CHARLIE MARR RUSHES IN THE RING AND THROWS TERRY TO THE OUTSIDE AND PINS THE LIFELESS ROCCO, OH NO, CHARLIE IS GONNA STEAL IT!!!!
(Terry Chambers desperately tries to rush back in the ring….)
DING! DING! DING!
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNNERRRRRR, “THE LIBERTINNNNNEEEEEEE’ CHAAAARRLIIIEEEEEE MAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
James Peters: CHARLIE MARR STOLE TERRY’S WIN!!! HE THREW HIM OUT AT THE LAST SECOND AND STOLE THE VICTORY!!
Rich Russillo: Congratulations, Charlie Marr. Though you have to feel for Terry Chambers. The performance of a lifetime, to be robbed like that? CHAMBERS CHASING MARR UP THE RAMP, BUT MARR ESCAPES INTO THE BACK BEFORE TERRY CAN REACH HIM! Terry’s so upset. He has no reason to hang his head though, he may have been defeated, but he’s certainly not a loser. Chambers looks more than frustrated, James…He looks infuriated.
James Peters: CHAMBERS NOW STOMPING THE HEAD OF JOE ROCCO INTO THE CANVAS, WHAT THE HELL!?!?! TERRY CHAMBERS IS POUNDING THE LIFELESS BODY OF JOE ROCCO, WHO’S ABSOLUTELY DEFENSELESS!!! JESUS CHRIST TERRY, STOP!!! HE’S STOMPING OUT THE LIFE IN JOE ROCCO!!! NOW LOOKING UNDER THE RING APRON FOR SOMETHING…PLEASE, TERRY, STOP!!! OH NO, HE’S GOT A SLEDGEHAMMER, TERRY STOP!!! HE’S GOING TO END ROCCO’S CAREER!!! TERRY CHAMBERS MALICIOUSLY LOOKING AT THE HAMMER AND THEN AT ROCCO…NO! NO! TERRY DRIVES THE SLEDGEHAMMER DOWN ONTO THE SKULL OF ROCCO!!!! HOLY SHIT!!!!
Rich Russillo: Oh my God…That was absolutely disgusting, Rocco’s career is over. Rarely do competitors even survive such acts of violence, let alone wrestle again. Oh my good God. We need an ambulance here immediately, God bless him. An incredible bout stained by the disgusting acts afterwards. Sunday night Voltage will return shortly with more action.
(The camera fades into the backstage area as it gives a view of the curtain that leads to the ring. Terry Chambers bursts through the curtain stiffly as he begins to make his way over to the main backstage area. He swiftly walks through the backstage area as it’s clear he’s still full of anger after the last match. But before long the door to Captain Charisma’s office absolutely bursts open as Captain Charisma walks out and looks right at Terry. The Voltage Commissioner is not happy as he walks up to Terry and stops him right in his tracks)
Captain Charisma: Do you know what you just did Terry?! You- I absolutely cannot believe you’d do something like that. Grizzly Bear Rocco was a functioning elitist signed to EAW and you could’ve ended his life, hell I could probably say you did! Do you know how much trouble this is going to get us?!
Terry Chambers: :mjpls: Not like I wasn’t almost killed before anyways but still. I could not give a single shit about it. As much as you want me to plead, as much as you want me to beg to you for forgiveness after what I just did, it was well-needed in my dictionary. So look, you either do something about it and do it right now or get out of my way.
???: Oh you’re such a tough guy right?
(Charlie Marr slowly struts into the scene as he looks at Terry with a shit-eating grin disguised by his signature beard)
Charlie Marr: You really needed to do that huh? You know Terry, they write me as the villain for a reason, they say my actions are “unjust” or “uncalled for” but in reality, in the way, I look at it, I’m looking at the villain right here. I mean let’s be honest here for a moment right? They cheer you on, you’re the underdog and everything, you then proceed to snap the neck of a poor, futile elitist in that ring. Doesn’t that shiver you? Well, I can say it fits my definition of the villain, nothing more than that.
Terry Chambers: You shut your mouth and listen right here-
???: How about YOU shut your mouth.
???: I’ll do you one better.
???: This is absolutely ridiculous…
(Komatsu Ogawa, Shawn Sturgis, and Rex McAllister walk into the scene. Clearly, these are members of the Grand Rampage match that are being concerned as they quickly begin to argue with one another. Komatsu looks damn near close to killing everyone as Shawn Sturgis keeps a monochromatic face but is still near breaking point as well, whilst Rex McAllister seems like kind of the rational one as he keeps a calm face but is still interjecting into the arguments, all while Captain Charisma is in the middle of it)
Captain Charisma: Alright, STOP!
(The Voltage Grand Rampage participants grow quiet as they look to Captain Charisma who looks even more angered than before. CC closes his eyes and takes a deep breath trying to relax before speaking)
Captain Charisma: Clearly you have pent up anger, and I get that. But this is no place for arguing, Voltage of all brands should know that, to say the least. But whilst I have you all here and in one spot, I feel like it’s fitting to draw to see who’s last in the Grand Rampage match.
(It’s seemingly on cue when all the Voltage participants draw a smirk as they hear that announcement. After a moment Captain Charisma wheels in a ball roller with balls clearly filled inside of it. It’s clear just by a first glance that all the balls inside are blank, yet one ball inside is plastered with the number “40”, it’s just luck whoever gets it.)
Captain Charisma: Draw…
(Komatsu Ogawa struts up first full of confidence as he does so. He draws a ball and looks at it to see it’s blank. He slams it to the ground in anger as he shakes his head before moving over and letting someone else go. Shawn Sturgis goes next as he keeps that straight face as he draws a ball and looks at it. He keeps his eye trained on it for a moment as it’s pure blank, he nods slowly as he walks back to his spot previously, clearly not mad either way. Rex McAllister goes up next as he draws a ball and looks at it to see a blank. He grasps it tight in his hands but looks with a straight face, it’s clear either way he still has the confidence he needs to say he is going to win the Grand Rampage match. Terry Chambers is next as he swiftly draws a ball and looks at it, meeting a blank ball. In a fit of anger, he throws it to the wall before shaking his head and walking away, which only leaves one person. Charlie Marr walks up and slowly, taking his time, as he draws a ball. He looks at it with a chuckle as he turns the ball around to show a big “40” marked on it)
Charlie Marr: if time goes well, I nearly won Grand Rampage from #1 last year, seems I got this one in the bag as well. This is nothing, I told you all that if I was not going to get that EAW Championship match that the corrupt commissioner of this brand was just so gracefully giving out to part-timers on this boat, that I would absolutely dominate the Grand Rampage match, one way or another. This is my match to win now, you’re all just living in some fever dream-
(Terry Chambers has had enough as he bursts forward and quickly swings punches at Charlie. Charlie is taken by surprise as he’s pushed into the corner but quickly trades punches with him as well. Whilst there the Grand Rampage competitors break out into a fistfight as they quickly begin to trade punches with one another as it’s clear this is rampage. All of them are viciously attacking one another as finally security is called in as they separate each and every one of them from one another quickly before they near kill eachother. The Grand Rampage competitors are taken elsewhere leaving Captain Charisma by himself. He shakes his head rubbing his temple as he turns and makes his way back to his office shaking his head as the camera fades out)
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: A commercial is shown for the “WOAT Victims Unit” starring Ahren Fournier. Ahren is seen with sock puppets dressed up like members of the BVU as they solve crimes in the streets. It ends with Ahren finding a actual robber instead of one he paid with money and screaming in fear as he quickly runs away and throws the sock puppets at him)
(Bella Braxton is in the center of the ring with a microphone in her hand, ready to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
(There is no response due to the fans being absent.)
James Peters: Tough crowd.
Rich Russillo: That wasn’t funny.
James Peters: Sorry.
Bella Braxton:… Introducing first-
(Suddenly, ‘Immigrant Song’ by Led Zeppelin hits, as Drake King and the Visual Prophet walk down to the commentary table. The Visual Prophet has a smile on his face, and Drake looks how he usually does as they look towards Rich Russillo and James Peters.)
Drake King (Off Mic): You guys can go.
James Peters: Go where?
Drake King (Off Mic): Away. Your services aren’t needed.
Rich Russillo: Oh.
Persephone: Thank the Lord.
The Visual Prophet (Pointing towards Persephone): She can stay though. I think I like this one.
(Rich and James give their commentary headsets to Drake and Viz, and the Tag Champs take their seats as ‘Still Waiting’ by Sum 41 hits. Sierra and Sarah make their way directly down to the ring, having no fans to interact with. They look towards Drake and Viz with slightly confused looks on their faces, but they try brushing it off to focus on the match.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… At a combined weight of 251 pounds… SASS! SIERRA AND SARAH, SUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPEERRRGIIRRRLLSS!!!!!
The Visual Prophet: This is going to be a whole lotta fun.
Drake King: I hope so. Honestly I don’t like the sound of this, but then again I don’t like any of this. I guess we should scout our opponents though.
Persephone: Did I really have to stay?
The Visual Prophet: Yes.
(Before the Visual Prophet could finish speaking, ‘Scenario’ by Pop Smoke hits. Malcolm Jones slowly makes his way out to the stage, looking towards the two in the ring before making his way down the ramp. He noticed Drake and Viz in the commentary booth, but doesn’t bother paying too much attention to them as he makes his way to the ring as confident as ever.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponent.. From Harlem, New York…. Weighing in at 230 pounds… MAAALLLLLCCOOOOOLLLLLMMMM JOOOOOOOOOOONNESSS!!!!!!
Drake King: Yuck. This guy stinks.
The Visual Prophet: He does. I heard all the stuff he said about you this week too. Don’t worry bout it bro, he’s just jealous.
Drake King: Don’t worry, I knew that already.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Drake King: Okay, that’s the bell. The match is starting now I guess and- oh, Sierra is starting the match, and she just went right after Malcolm. The two wasted no time locking up, and it looks like the two are struggling to see who’ll get the upper hand- nevermind. Malcolm is able to get Sierra in a headlock, but Sierra immediately runs into the ropes, causing him to release the headlock as he bounces off the ropes. Sierra running towards Malcolm now, and she went for a dropkick but Malcolm avoided it. Malcolm now picking Sierra up, and he attempted a suplex but Sierra managed to land on her feet.
The Visual Prophet: You’re pretty good at this whole commentary thang, you sure you don’t wanna do this more often?
Drake King: Positive.
The Visual Prophet: Alright, gotchu. Anyways Sandy hit a nice little neckbreaker, and now she’s-
Drake King: Sandy?
The Visual Prophet: Ye.
Drake King: That’s not her-
The Visual Prophet: Drizzy you’re missing it bro, Samantha is going for the cover.
The Visual Prophet: Aw, but Malcolm kicked out. What a shame.
Drake King: Who is Samantha?
The Visual Prophet: Your girl, duh!
Drake King: Her name is Sierra.
Persephone: You two are annoying.. Anyways Sierra tries putting Malcolm in a rear chinlock, but Malcolm immediately countered it with a snapmare before she had the chance to. Now Malcolm is the one attempting the rear chinlock, but Sierra got to her feet before he had the chance to lock it in, and now she’s punching him in the midsection. God this match already sucks but you two idiots had to run the other two commentators out of here so now I have to actually do my job.
The Visual Prophet: You’re a feisty one.
Drake King: Anyways, Sierra tried tagging Sarah in, but Malcolm pulled her back. I guess he attempted a short arm clothesline, but Sierra ducked it. Oh wow, step up enzuigiri by Si! Sierra now running the ropes while Malcolm is barely standing- oh. Welp, Malcolm just laid her out with a clothesline. Well that sucks, but Sierra’s getting back up so that’s good. Sierra is using the turnbuckles to get back up and now Malcolm is running towards her, but Sierra just kicked him right in his stupid face. Sierra to the middle rope now, and she attempted a diving move but Malcolm moved towards the turnbuckles, causing Si to dive right over him and have to roll back to her feet.
The Visual Prophet: And just like that Serena is taken down with a bicycle kick! Poor thing. Serena’s tryna reach her partner, but Malcolm doesn’t want that Sarah smoke so he’s pulling her away with an ankle lock. Too bad he can’t do it like me, lil’ girl would be tapping in seconds.
Drake King: So you get Sarah’s name right?
The Visual Prophet: What? I’m pretty sure I’ve been saying both of their names correctly this whole time.
Persephone: Sierra managed to hit another enzuigiri to escape the ankle lock, and now she just clotheslined Malcolm over the top rope. For some reason the idiot isn’t tagging in her partner, and instead she’s following Malcolm out the ring.
Drake King: Don’t call her an idiot.
Persephone: Whatever. Sierra now slamming Malcolm’s face onto the apron, and honestly this just feels like one big waste of time. Hopefully the referee reaches ten so this match could end already-
The Visual Prophet: Yo, Sierra!
(Sierra turns around to the Visual Prophet, clearly confused as to why he’s calling for her in the middle of her match.)
Sierra Bradford (Off Mic): Um…. Yes?
Drake King: Dude, what are you doing?
The Visual Prophet: Sierra, what’s up girl? How’s your day been?
Sierra Bradford (Off Mic): Now’s not a great time for-
Drake King: Behind you Si.
(Sierra turns back around, and is taken by surprise as Malcolm hits her with a kick to the midsection, before sending her into the ring post.)
Drake King: What was that for Viz?
The Visual Prophet: I just wanted to have a chat, that’s all.
Drake King (sighing): Now I even further regret accepting this match.
Persephone: Malcolm just rolled into the ring then rolled back out of it, and I’m pretty sure that means he restarted the count or something. Clearly this man must hate me. Malcolm now grabbing Sierra while she attempts to get to her feet, and she slams her face into the apron. Malcolm trying to send her into the next ring post now I guess, but Sierra stopped herself with her foot before hitting Malcolm with a back elbow. Sierra now rolling into the ring, and Malcolm follows right behind but he’s not fast enough since Sierra managed to tag in Sarah. Malcolm charges towards Sierra anyway but is caught with a snapmare, and Sarah follows it up with an enzuigiri. Sarah now going for the cover, and please let this be it.
Persephone: Are you kidding me?
The Visual Prophet: I bet you’re excited to see Sarah in the ring right now Drake.
Drake King: Please, don’t start this again. I already had Malcolm trying to make it a thing all week.
The Visual Prophet: Right, right. Anyways Malcolm kicked out of that tag team move that doesn’t compare to anything Drizzy and Vizzy could do, but Sarah ain’t done just yet it looks like. Malcolm was trying to get up on his own, but Sarah grabbed him from behind, and I guess she’s tryna put this match away, I’ve seen her do this once or twice.
Drake King: Sarah attempting the Plot Twist ripcord knee strike, but Malcolm was able to counter it by hitting a forearm with his free arm before Sarah could go for the knee! That elbow caused Sarah to fall back into the ropes, and now Malcolm backpedals into the opposite pair before running off of it, and Malcolm went for that spear of his I think, but Sarah leapfrogged right over him, and now she pulls him down into a sunset flip pin.
Drake King: That was a pretty clever move by Sarah, but Malcolm managed to kick out so it doesn’t really matter in the- O.
The Visual Prophet: Ouch.
Persephone: Malcolm got right back to his feet after kicking out of the pin, and he just hit that curb stomp move before Sarah could get all the way back to her feet. I think he calls it the Woo Walk or something. I don’t really care but yeah Sarah is out. Malcolm is pinning her and finally this match is over!
ONE! TWO!! THRE-
Drake King: Well Sarah kicked out.
The Visual Prophet: If it was you hittin’ that curb stomp she wouldn’t have tho.
Drake King: Well yeah. I can do anything better than Malcolm. Anyways Sarah is trying to crawl over to Sierra, but Malcolm just stomped onto her back. Kinda unnecessary but okay. Sarah rolled out onto the apron after that, and now Malcolm is trying to pull her up- but Sarah just knocked the taste outta him with that forearm. Sarah is still kinda wobbly, she’s using the ropes to even stay on the apron, but she’s able to hit another forearm as Malcolm approaches her again. Sarah now climbing to the top rope, and wow, diving crossbody- or not.
Persephone: Malcolm caught her with ease, but Sarah managed to slip out of his hands before he could really do anything. Sarah backing into her corner, and Sierra tags herself in while Malcolm charges in. Sarah kicks Malcolm in the face before both women run the ropes, and I think these two call that the “Totally PG Move”. Oh, wow. Malcolm rolled out of the ring after getting hit with the knees.
Drake King: Wow Malcolm. I thought you were good enough to beat both these girls at the same time? What’s going on now?
(Malcolm for a brief moment looks towards Drake, before brushing him off to try not to get too distracted. Unfortunately it was already too late, because as soon as he turns around, he is met with a suicide dive by Sierra Bradford.)
The Visual Prophet: Wow, what a dive! Great job Sally, you go girl!
Sierra Bradford (Off Mic): This’ll be you at Dynasty.
The Visual Prophet: Mhm.
Drake King: This is a mess.
Persephone: Sierra rolling Malcolm into the ring now, and now she climbs up to the top rope while waiting for Malcolm to get back up. Sierra now attempting a diving move, but kinda like earlier Malcolm avoided it, but this time Sierra just landed on her feet. Malcolm off the ropes though, and this time the C-Note connects! Please let this be it. Sierra was nearly cut in half, there’s no way she should be able to kick out! Malcolm with the cover, finally! One step closer to Rex’s match!
ONE! TWO!! THRE-
Drake King: Sorry Persephone, but you’re gonna have to wait a little longer. Sierra won’t go down that easily.
Persephone: I hate this.
The Visual Prophet: What’s the matter girl? You’re sitting here with the most handsome man in the company, and Drake King.
Drake King: And what’s the deal with you and Rex?
Persephone: Other than him being the love of my life?
Drake King:…Isn’t he married- actually nevermind. Forget it. Anyways, Malcolm is having a bit of trouble right now, and I guess his confidence may have gotten the best of him as now he’s struggling to find a way to win this match. Wouldn’t be the first time his ego led him to failure. Anyone remember when I beat him for the Interwire Championship?
The Visual Prophet: I sure do bro.
Drake King: Man it sure is funny how someone can talk so much and still get proven wrong so easily. Well, serves him right. Maybe he should’ve taken a different approach this week rather than relying on stupid rumors like a child.
The Visual Prophet: Facts.
Drake King: Viz, you do realize you’re the reason they started, right?
The Visual Prophet: Yeah. So?
Persephone: Malcolm Jones is climbing up to the top rope now, and I think this match will finally be over if this actually connects. Sierra please just take the fall. Think of me. This match is like torture, I don’t want to be here any longer than I have to.
Drake King: Why are you even working here if you hate this so much?
Persephone: None of your business. Anyways, YES! FIVE STAR SWAG SPLA-….
Drake King: Are you okay?
Persephone: No I’m not okay, Sierra just rolled out of the way. If neither competitor could even get up, how is this match supposed to end anytime soon? This is a tragedy.
Drake King: Viz, did you really have to keep her around?
The Visual Prophet: Of course I did! I guess you just don’t understand yet. Maybe when you’re older.
The Visual Prophet: Hey, looks like Sierra is actually getting up. Maybe she’s not as weak as I thought she was, although then again it won’t mean a thing when I knock her lights out on Dynasty.
The Visual Prophet: What, did I say something wrong? All I-
Persephone: Shining Wizard by Sierra. Honestly I’m not even going to bother trying to remember her name for that move. Hopefully this is the end of the match, everything about this has been a disaster.
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Persephone: Another kickout… I’m honestly not even surprised at this point. I just have to accept that everyone here hates me and purposefully are dragging out their matches as long as possible so I can’t see Rex.
The Visual Prophet: These two can’t even beat Malcolm Jones in a handicap match and we’re supposed to be afraid of them?
Drake King: Dude you’re the one that challenged them.
The Visual Prophet: But they accepted it, right? They’re not ready for Drizzy and Vizzy. Nobody is.
Persephone: Sierra tagged in Sarah now, and hopefully this is the end coming up. Sarah is pulling Malcolm to his feet, and she has him in a front facelock. And now she sets up for the Dance With- nevermind. Malcolm managed to lift her up into a back body drop, and now I guess this is where the tides shift back into Malcolm’s favor somehow. Sarah is able to get back to her feet, but as soon as she does she’s met with a superkick by Malcolm. Somehow Malcolm is getting back into this, and since both Sierra and Sarah seem to be beyond incompetent hopefully he can put this match away.
Drake King: Jeez, what an attitude.
Persephone: Malcolm now running the ropes, and he went for another Woo Walk but of course Sarah managed to roll out of the way. PLOT TWIST! YES, YES THAT’S IT! PIN HIM! PIN HIM- Uhh… Drake, what’s that guy doing?
Drake King: Oh no..
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
(Despite Malcolm Jones seemingly managing to get the shoulder up before three, the Visual Prophet pulls the referee out of the ring. The referee argues with Viz for a while, before Sierra Bradford charges towards Viz, taking him down before beginning to hit him with a barrage of punches.)
Persephone: You should probably go help.
Drake King: You’re right.
(Out of frustration, Sierra grabs Viz and sends him into the ringpost, before Drake walks up to her to try and calm her down. Before he could finish speaking though, Sarah Price takes him down with a dropkick through the ropes. Chaos has erupted outside of the ring, and the referee’s attention is completely on the madness occurring with the two teams, leaving Malcolm Jones in the ring on his own.)
Persephone: Wow, this is a mess. Drake and Viz aren’t exactly fighting back, but I wish the ref would call for the bell anyway. This isn’t very entertaining, in fact it’s quite the- what the hell? Is that.. Yeah it is, Andrea Valentine just walked down the ramp and onto the apron as Malcolm finally got back to his feet, and now Andrea just entered the ring and went after Malcolm. Andrea and Malcolm are fighting it out, but Andrea just caught Malcolm’s arm, and now she just hit the XOXO. What is going on? Why isn’t this over already?
(After hitting the XOXO, Andrea climbs onto the middle rope. On the outside of the ring, SASS just hit the Visual Prophet with the Totally PG Move, after already hitting it on Drake moments prior. As Malcolm gets up, Andrea hits the V-Day before rolling out of the ring. After taking out Drizzy and Vizzy, SASS realizes what just happened inside of the ring, as Sierra gets back into her corner and Sarah climbs to the top rope.)
Persephone: Well, that was a lot to take in just now, but thanks to Andrea I think this match is finally ending. Thank you Andrea! Sarah hits the Happy Ending! This is perfect! The referee is back in the ring, and now Sarah covers Malcolm! This is great, finally this one is over!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners…. SASS!! SIERRA AND SARAH…. SUUUUUUPPEERRRRGIIIRRRLLSSSS!!!!
Persephone: FINALLY! Honestly I don’t care about the winners at all, I’m just glad this match was over. I guess I am supposed to say congrats or something since Rich and James aren’t here, so congrats I guess. Wow, this place is a mess right now. Can’t wait for the main event.
(‘Still Waiting’ hits as Sierra Bradford helps Sarah Price to her feet. The referee holds up Sierra and Sarah’s hands, and the two women look outside of the ring to Andrea Valentine, who simply looks right at Malcolm Jones, who is still laid out in the ring. The two exit the ring, meanwhile the Unified Tag Team Champions, Drake King and the Visual Prophet, are barely stirring, looking towards the ramp at SASS, who are looking right back at them with smiles on their faces as Voltage fades to a commercial break)
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: A commercial break for the new TV series, Darcy May Morgan: Escaping Quarantine. Although she’s probably still stuck in Peru, Hollywood does like to exaggerate some stuff. Watch as a person who definitely does not look like Darcy tries to break out of her hotel room to make it to San Francisco to meet the love of her life, the Specialist Championship, yeah, we’re confused too)
(The camera cuts back to the inside of the ring as Voltage is back. The ring is transformed from a regular ring to a contract signing area as the canvas is overlayered with a black carpet along with a big desk in the middle of the ring. James Peters is the ring as he looks at the camera with a smile as he pans over it and begins to speak)
James Peters: Welcome everyone, to the contract signing for the Universal Women’s Championship match at Grand Rampage! Let’s recap back to the Showdown exclusive free-per-view, Under Siege, for a moment to start this all of to gain you some background knowledge before we come at you headfirst. Raven Roberts had retained her Universal Women’s Championship against Harper Lee and Alexis Chambers in an absolutely grueling match for sure. The celebration pertained, yet it was all broken up when Minerva rushed out as she absolutely floored Raven down to the ground. She was going to cash in her Iconic Cup on her at that moment from when she beat her tag partner, Constance Blevins at Clash of Kingdoms a few months prior :wow:. After Minerva had floored Raven she went for the pin, winning the Universal Women’s Championship away from Raven that night. But now it all comes to a head as the rematch for that exact title in a match, will be at Grand Rampage as Raven Roberts looks to be the one fighting for Minerva’s title! Now that we have that out of the way, let us get the competitors out.
(Silence eludes for a moment before ‘Mark My Words’ by Doll Skin plays up. Raven Roberts slowly makes her way out to the stage. She looks determined but gives off a light smile as she stands on the ramp and makes her way down the ramp. She takes her time making her way down the ramp before rolling into the ring. She’s handed a mic and begins to make herself accustomed to the contract desk taking a seat before beginning to speak)
Raven Roberts: I think it should be clear no matter how you look at it how much the Universal Women’s Championship meant to be when I held it. Although I could feel with a heavy debt when I lost it, at the end of the day there’s always a bright side to the situation which I look to. I came out as the longest-reigning Universal Women’s Champion to date and believe me I hold that with pride. I could contest that I elevated the title more than anything else. For five months I gave it my all, especially after the doubters claimed that it wouldn’t be of such worth because it was a “cash in” I put in the best of my ability to make sure that I was one of the best damn Universal Women’s Champion in history and I made sure to do that with something that some people lack in this business, honor. Yet despite all of that I can say that I’m not satisfied, it’s true I’m not satisfied despite having an five-month title reign. That’s why I came back not to sit around and not do anything about it, I came and challenged her to make sure it gained the feeling that it never left me. That’s why as always I will go through hell and back at Grand Rampage just as I’ve done my whole career to make sure I gain the Universal Women’s Championship back, I worked years to take it, and in two weeks I reclaim it.
(Raven places the mic down slowly as she finishes speaking. Before long though “Children of the Son’ by Pipe Choir plays up. A spotlight begins to shine down as Minerva is seen kneeling as the Universal Women’s Championship is next to her too by itself. She begins to slowly stand up as she takes the title and puts it over her shoulder before walking slowly down to the ring taking her time as she does so. She rolls into the ring as she methodically makes her way to her chair and takes a seat across from Raven. She puts her feet on the desk as she takes a mic and begins to speak)
Minerva: 14 months, that’s how long it took. That’s how long it took to reach that ultimate goal of mind that at the end of the day absolutely prospered, into something that reached out and pulled me into its grasp so I can just so reach, and grab. My goal was to become the Universal Women’s Championship, no matter how much I was fighting for tag titles with Heavenly Hell, and how that was always the goal in mind no doubt about it, this title that I hold over my shoulder now was left with the backseat, but the vision pertained, just so long as to Clash of Kingdoms where it was left to linger, then thrive. Yet I showed much more than that, I showed much more than just me winning the Universal Women’s Championship, I showed that at the end of the day you don’t have to be a long-haired, slender figured, barbie slut to succeed in this business. But moving onto the present and how I accepted dear Raven’s challenge, I promise you dearly, at Grand Rampage, that I will win and keep that Universal Women’s Championship. And I will show just as, that my win was not a fluke. It never will be, and I will continue to reign and do what I do best, stand over my opponents.
James Peters: Alright, may I please ask you both to sign the contract and make the Universal Women’s Title match at Grand Rampage official?
(Minerva quickly pulls the contract forward with jagged force as she signs the contract slowly, even so closely staring a hole into Raven before pushing it back. Raven turns the contract around and signs it before James closes it and places it under his arm with a bright smile, signaling the end of the contract signing)
(Raven gets out of her seat beginning to leave as Minerva quickly stands up and runs forward with the Universal Women’s Championship in hand attempting to hit her with it! Raven quickly notices with wide-eyes as she quickly ducks under and with quick reflexes runs to the ropes and backs as Minerva turns around not knowing of what happened and was thinking she connected before getting the bottom of a shoe met right to her face connecting with a Talon!)
(The last shot is of Raven Roberts looking down on a knocked out Minerva as she slowly takes the championship and looks at it for a moment before dropping it down on Minerva as Voltage fades out to elsewhere)
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: A commercial is shown for Xander Payne’s daycare. Ever had a child that you didn’t want to leave with your bitchass mother in law, and ever had a child that you didn’t want to leave with that idiotic “DEDEDE and Kassidy’s babysitter club bitchass place” then Xander’s daycare is the best solution for your problems)
(Voltage comes back to see Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
( “Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson hits through to the speakers, which prompts Shawn Sturgis to march out of the guerilla with a confident look on his face. With an unsettling demeanor planted on his face, he solemnly makes his way down towards the squared circle. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST!! From Riverside, California, weighing in at 190 pounds… HE IS “THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR”, SHAAAAAWWWWNNNNNN STURRRRRRGGGISSS!!!
Rich Russillo: We are seconds away from witnessing a glimpse of what we’re going to see in the forty-man Grand Rampage phenomenon. This is going to be a highly-contested affair between “The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air” and “The Rex Master”, and James, many of the EAW fanverse believe that Shawn Sturgis is the underdog heading into this match.
James Peters: Shawn Sturgis is absolutely the underdog heading into this match. From everything in his arsenal to everything that he says, he screams the “underdog from the underground” persona, and tonight, h-
Persephone: Let me stop you right there. Shawn Turdis or whatever his name is, isn’t the underdog in this match, REX IS. McAllister tonight has to face all the odds. He has to weather the storm pressure that is him living up to the expectation that he is the best professional wrestler in the world right now. Very few people want Rex to win because they are jealous of the fact in which Rex is perfect physically and mentally, and they’re not. LET’S GO REX!!
James Peters: You’re the only one who thinks that.
Persephone: SHUT UP PETERS BECAUSE HE’S HERE!!
( “Alive” by POD sounds throughout the uninhabited Toyota Center as Rex McAllister jerks the curtain and marches his way down onto the ramp. He takes a deep breath before walking towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Sea Isle, New Jersey, weighing in at 238 pounds…. “THE REX MASTER”, REXXXXXXXXXXXXXX MCCCCCCCCCCCCCALLLLLISTERRRRRRR!!!!
Rich Russillo: Rex McAllister has arrived and he has recently stirred up the pot with The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air. We are two weeks separated from the annual 2020 Gra-
Persephone: Shut your mouth, Rich! Bask in the glory of the best thing since sliced bread! This match shouldn’t even be happening because McAllister is ridiculously LEVELS higher than Shawn Sturgis and the sheer fact that this guy is sharing the spotlight with my T-Rex proves there’s going to be no true challenge for him come Grand Rampage!
James Peters: Everyone knows that when it comes to the thirty-man over-the-top rope match, he’s a dominant powerhouse and it is where he most thrives. But, if he wants to obtain that prized possession of a world title shot at Pain For Pride, he’s gonna have to keep a close eye on other elitists, especially his opponent tonight.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: This match is underway as “The Rex Master” clashes with the “Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” here in a Grand Rampage preview. They stare at each other before locking in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. McAllister has him in a wrist lock as Sturgis rolls over, kips-up, slaps his wrist away and puts him in a headlock. Nice transition there from “The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air” as McAllister uses his foot to press onto the back of Sturgis’ knee, bringing him down and allowing him to be able to go around and apply a waist hold onto Shawn Sturgis. Sturgis is quick to turn it around into a waist hold of his own. Standing switch from Shawn Sturgis as McAllister now grabs both wrists and pulls them away from his waist.
James Peters: Sturgis quickly turns him around and throws him down for a grounded headlock. Old-fashioned, technical pacing from these competitors thus far as McAllister gets those leg scissors in. It forces Sturgis to break the headlock, maneuver around and focus on the leg scissors. “The Rex Master” squeezes more and more as Sturgis goes up in a handstand! Amazing feat of athletic ability as he does a handstand with no hands and FLIPS RIGHT OUT OF THE GROUNDED LEG SCISSORS!!
McAllister dumbfounded as STURGIS DROPS DOWN AND GOES FOR A PK!! MCALLISTER EVADES THE PENALTY KICK AT THE LAST SECOND AS HE REELS INTO THE CORNER. Shawn Sturgis with a confident smirk as McAllister readjusts his ring gear before they engage in another collar-and-elbow tie-up! “The Rex Master” quickly uses his power to get Sturgis into a headlock.
Rich Russillo:Sturgis thrusts him into the ropes, McAllister releases the hold and rebounds off the ropes. He rolls into the ground as Sturgis comes around, circles around the arms and applies a headlock of his own onto McAllister. Rex immediately forces him into the ropes and impels him off the ropes. Sturgis leapfrogs up and over and takes down McAllister with a sunset flip.
James Peters: McAllister coils over, grabs a hold of both of his legs and rolls him backwards before coming off the ropes and CHARGING IN FOR A LARIAT!! STURGIS CAPTURES HIS INCOMING ARM AND TAKES HIM DOWN RIGHT INTO A FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! STURGIS QUICKLY WARPING THE ARM AND BENDING IT ALL THE WAY UP BEFORE MCALLISTER QUICKLY ROLLS OVER AND THROWS HIM AWAY.
Both elitists return up to their feet, but STURGIS IS THE FIRST AS HE SLASHES HIS CHEST WITH A HUGE OPEN-HAND CHOP!! McAllister is startled as Sturgis grabs his wrist and steps up to the ropes! HE LEAPS OFF AND GOES FOR A SPRINGBOARD ARM DRAG!! MCALLISTER BRINGS HIM RIGHT DOWN INTO A CRIPPLER CROSSFACE!! A CROSSFACE IS SINKED IN AS REX AGGRESSIVELY PULLS HIS HEAD BACK!

Sturgis charges in, Rex clocks him with a back elbow before dashing in from the corner for a YAKUZA KICK!
James Peters: STURGIS DUCKS THE KICK AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES BACK INTO MCALLISTER. REX GOES AROUND, GRABS HIS NECK AND PLANTS HIM WITH A REVERSE JUDO TAKEDOWN!! Sturgis lands chest-first as Rex comes off the ropes. STURGIS SHOOTS UP AND SURPRISES MCALLISTER WITH A HURRICANRANA!!

AND ANOTHER CORNER FOREARM SMASH!! McAllister is staggered as Sturgis puts up three fingers in the sky as he runs for another one! STURGIS REBOUNDS OFF THE CORNER AS MCALLISTER MEETS HIM IN THE MIDDLE AND EMPHATICALLY DROPS HIM WITH A FIREMAN’S CARRY DRIVER! HE GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER IN THIS MATCH!
Persephone: KICK-OUT!! My beautiful and handsome T-Rex dominates Shawn Sturgis as he now puts him in a grounded chinlock. McAllister looking to tire out that stupid idiot as he applies more pressure to the chin.
James Peters: But Shawn Sturgis now begins to fight out of it, directing shots to the midsection before escaping and flattening “The Rex Master” onto the canvas for a headlock. McAllister is quick to get a leg scissors while Sturgis goes for another handstand escape. MCALLISTER USES HIS LEGS TO DRIVE HIM DOWN!!! A PILEDRIVER AS REX QUICKLY GOES OVER FOR THE WIN!
James Peters: STURGIS GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!! Rex now quickly pulls him up to his feet by his wrist and grounds him with a snapmare. He jumps and DRILLS THE BACK OF HIS NECK WITH A PICTURE-PERFECT DOUBLE LEGGED DROPKICK!! HE GOES OVER FOR THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS KICKS OUT YET AGAIN! REX TAKES STURGIS DOWN WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE!! AND A SECOND ONE!!! Sturgis returns up to his feet as Rex hooks both arms and plants him down onto the canvas with a butterfly suplex! AND SPRINGS ONTO HIS FEET WITH A SMOOTH KIP-UP! Great athletic ability shown by McAllister following that combination as he now charges into Sturgis into the corner!
James Peters: AND SQUASHES HIM INTO THE BUCKLES WITH A CORNER CLOTHESLINE!! He isn’t done yet! He wraps his arm around his head, runs into the center of the ring and JUMPS UP!! RUNNING BULLDOG!!! STURGIS RELEASES HIM AND REX GOES NOSE DIVING INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!!
McAllister phased in the corner by the impact, possibly concussed as he turned around. Sturgis lights up with a combination of strikes. He finishes it off with a spinning heel kick to the chest that drives the wind out of his stomach. Rex reels into the corner as Sturgis sprints into the opposite corner. MCALLISTER FOLLOWS FROM BEHIND AND EXPLODES ONTO SHAWN INTO THE CORNER WITH A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE!!
Rich Russillo: HE IS OUT!!! REX NOW YANKS HIS WRIST AND GOES FOR AN IRISH WHIP. STURGIS SMACKS HIS HAND AWAY, THRUSTS HIM INTO THE CENTER OF THE WRING WITH A DOUBLE LEG PRESS BEFORE RUNNING, CIRCLING AROUND HIS WAIST AND DROPPING HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!!
James Peters: STURGIS IMMEDIATELY KIPS-UP ONTO HIS FEET!! McAllister rolls backwards into a kneeling position as STURGIS JUMPS UP AND NAILS HIS HEAD WITH A PRECISION DROPKICK!! HERE WE GO! COVER!
KICK-OUT! Sturgis helps “The Rex Master” up to his feet, riddling him with a chop and a final european uppercut before he Irish whip him into the ropes. Sturgis leans down as McAllister comes off the ropes and STUNS STURGIS WITH A FACEBREAKER KNEE SMASH!! “The Fresh Prince of Mid-air” is staggered while McAllister puts more gas on the pedal and runs back into the ropes!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS CHASES HIM AND DECKS HIM WITH A STEP-UP ENZIGURI!!! He shocked him with that enziguri as Sturgis now dashes into the opposite side of the ring.

James Peters: STURGIS TURNS IT INTO THE CRUCIFIX DRIVER!! WHAT A COUNTER AS HE NOW PINS HIS SHOULDERS DOWN!!
MCALLISTER POWERS OUT!! A creative counter by the innovative Shawn Sturgis as he pulls McAllister up to his feet. He clocks him with a forearm smash and grabs his wrist to pull him in. Rex slaps his wrist away and swings forward. Sturgis blocks the strike, circumventing it and landing a well-placed kick into the midsection. Rex is rocked as Sturgis now signals for the end! HE JUMPS OVER HIS HEAD AND ONTO HIS BACK!
Rich Russillo: REX DUCKS DOWN AND GOES AROUND HIS WAIST!! Sturgis I believe, was going for the Fresh Prince as REX HOOKS HIM BY THE SIDE AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE OLYMPIC SLAM!! IT CONNECTS THIS TIME AS REX FOLDS HIS LEGS FOR THE WIN!
James Peters: STURGIS ESCAPES! McAllister now gets up to his feet, bringing Sturgis up with him. He coils his arms around his waist, lifting him up and planting Sturgis with a german suplex. He maintains the waist hold and assists him right back up to his feet. He relinquishes the waist, hooks both arms and DRILLS STURGIS WITH A DRAGON SUPLEX!! AND REX REMAINS TO MAINTAIN THE SUPLEX HOLD!!
He gets him up to his feet by the arms for the third time as he grabs both wrists. STRAIGHT JACKET SUPLEX!! NO!! STURGIS PULLS HIS ARMS AWAY AND USES HIS LEFT FOOT TO FREE HIMSELF OUT OF THE HOLD.

SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
ONE.. TWO…. T-
Rich Russillo: KICK-OUT! McAllister begins to show signs of frustration as he immediately goes into the grounded chinlock. He wraps his arms around the face, applying pressure as he looks to wear down “The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air” However, Sturgis now begins to fight his way out of the hold, sending repeated blows to the midsection before rolling him over his shoulders and into the ground.
Persephone: He gets out of the hands of Rex McAllister before running into the ropes and back! MCALLISTER GOES AROUND AND PUTS HIM IN A SLEEPER HOLD!

The boston crab is relinquished as Sturgis gets up at his feet and reels McAllister through the ropes and onto the apron with a hurricanrana.
Persephone: NO!!! Rexy pulls himself up the ropes while Sturgis runs and goes around his waist. GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE APRON!! BUT MCALLISTER BLOCKS IT AND CLOCKS HIM WITH A BOMBARDMENT OF BACK ELBOWS!! Rex circumvented what would’ve been disastrous as he now hooks his tights and lifts him up. THIS COULD BE IT!!

Rex lifts him over his shoulders, Sturgis manages to handspring off the ropes, grab his head and DRILL REX WITH A SKULL-CRUSHING DDT!! HOW IN THE WORLD!?!?
James Peters: WONDERFUL OFFENSIVE ACTION BY SHAWN STURGIS AS HE NOW THROWS HIM INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE. He steps onto the apron and springboards off the top rope. SPRINGBOARD LEG DROP ACROSS THE NECK CONNECTS!! STURGIS HOOKS BOTH LEGS AS WE MAY HAVE A WINNER!
ONE… TWO…. T-
Rich Russillo: MCALLISTER POPS HIS SHOULDER UP!! Sturgis gets up and waits in the corner for McAllister to return to his feet.

James Peters: STURGIS KICKS-OUT!! Rex is implementing the most brutal moves out of his arsenal and it still isn’t enough to put away “The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air”.

Rich Russillo: This has been an amazing match so far and these two have shown why they deserve to be in the Grand Rampage match. The performance McAllister and Sturgis has exhibited proves that they are surely going to last long in the match. Both elitists now up on their feet, completely exhausted and drained of their energy as they stare at each other from across the ring! THEY CLASH INTO EACH OTHER!
James Peters: THEY UNLEASH BOMBARDMENTS OF VARIOUS STRIKES INTO EACH OTHER, JUST SWINGING FORWARD UNTIL THEY TIRE EACH OTHER OUT!! AND STURGIS NOW TOWERING “THE REX MASTER” WITH STIFF HEADBUTTS BEFORE REX DESPERATELY SHOVES HIM AWAY!!

James Peters: These two have exchanged submission holds throughout this match and McAllister now using his inner core strength to deadlift Sturgis up and off the ground. Sturgis remains dedicated to the triangle hold as Rex carries him onto the turnbuckle and carries him as he ascends the buckles. Sturgis is trying to make him go to sleep as fast as possible because Rex is seconds from possibly murdering him in cold-blood.
Persephone: The smart and intelligent Rex has Sturgis and himself on the top turnbuckle as Shawn Sturgis keeps the triangle hold sinked in, but McAllister successfully fends it off with pounding palm strikes to the chest. McAllister now grabs both legs and gets higher up on the top turnbuckles. There’s no way he’s going to go for a super powerbomb? FUCK HIM UP REX!
Rich Russillo: BUT STURGIS NOW OVERWHELMING THE STRONGMAN WITH AN ONSLAUGHT OF STIFF HEADBUTS. HE HAS THE HEIGHT ADVANTAGE AS HE JUMPS ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND FLIPS HIM OVER!!! SUPPPPPPPPERRRRRRR FRESSSHHHHH PRINNNNNCCEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SIT-OUT SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB OFF THE TOP ROPE CONNECTS AS STURGIS NOW CRADLES HIM DOWN!! THIS IS IT!!
ONE… TWO…. THR-
Persephone: MCALLISTER POPS HIS SHOULDER UP!! AMAZING!!
James Peters: McAllister has discreetly rolled out of the ring as Sturgis gets his hand on the ropes and slingshots his body over the top rope and dives onto “The Rex Master”. McAllister gets out of the way and swings forward for a forearm smash! Sturgis blocks the blow and shoves him away. He goes for a flush superkick. Rex sidesteps the kick, circles around his waists and USES HIS POWER TO ELEVATE STURGIS INTO THE AIR!! VERTICAL SUPLEX!!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS OVERTURNS REX AND DROPS HIM WITH A STUNNER!! A WELL-TIMED COUNTER OUT OF THIN AIR FROM “THE PRINCE OF MID-AIR” WHILE HE RISES BACK UP TO HIS FEET!! McAllister remains to be perplexed from the effects of the stunner as Sturgis takes a few steps back and sprouts off the steel steps! LEAPING FOREARM ONTO REX MCALLISTER!!!
James Peters: McAllister recoils off the barricade and makes a loud thud. Sturgis slides in and out of the squared circle to break the referee’s count and grabs McAllister by his tights. He isn’t choosing to bring him back into the ring as he hoists him up and plants him chest first onto the top of the barricade! Rex is suspended over the barricade and I don’t know what the capricious Sturgis has in mind at this point in the match.
Rich Russillo: This man is batshit crazy because I believe he is looking for that reverse facing diving senton onto the dangling “Rex Master”. There’s no way he can actually successfully go through with this. He’s now nested on the top turnbuckle with a bird’s eye view of McALLISTER AS HE SOARRRS!!! LOOOOOOOKKKKK NOOOOOO EYYYEESSSSS!!!
James Peters: IT CONNECTS!!! STURGIS MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH THE LOOK NO EYES LEAP OF FAITH SENTON AS HE NOW GETS MCALLISTER BACK INTO THE RING!!! HE QUICKLY STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES, BUT LOOK! MCALLISTER IMMEDIATELY ROLLS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING, ALMOST BY INSTINCT!!! Sturgis disappointed as he tediously exited the ring to bring “The Rex Master” back into the ring. He smashes his face onto the edge of the apron before sliding him in. He now steps onto the apron and climbs the turnbuckles!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS HAS MADE HIS WAY UP TO THE VANTAGE POINT WHERE HE IS MOST COMFORTABLE!! THE DAREDEVIL SOARSSSS!!!! LOOOOOOOOK NOOOOOOOOO EYEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: HA!!!!!! STURGIS PLUMMETS RIGHT ONTO THE KNEES OF REX MCALLISTER!! THAT’S WHAT YOU GET! REX LIFTED HIS KNEES UP IN TIME AS HE NOW GETS UP TO HIS FEET!! STURGIS SCREECHES AND GRABS HIS BACK IN PAIN. REX COMES OFF THE ROPES AND BACK INTO HIM!! He rebounds and floats over the shoulders!!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE REX EFFECT DDT!!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
ONE….. TWO…… THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS GETS THE TIP OF HIS BOOT ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE!! McAllister appalled by the resilience of “The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air” and all three of us are too!
Persephone: UGHH!! HOW COME THE REFEREES ARE NOW JUST STARTING TO USE THEIR DAMN EYES??? I bet the referee planted his foot onto them himself!
Rich Russillo: We literally saw Sturgis get his foot onto the rope.
Persephone: I don’t know what you’re talking about. But, it doesn’t matter because McAllister is about to close in on this match. He’s going to put the finishing touches on Shawn Sturgis as he now rebounds off the ropes and looks to float over the shoulders! THE REX EFFECT!!! YES!!!
James Peters: STURGIS TWISTS AROUND AND CIRCLES AROUND HIS WAIST!! HE JUMPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD!! FRONT FLIP STUNNER!!! NO!!! REX HOLDS ONTO HIM, STOPPING HIM FROM COMPLETING THE GUILLOTINE ATTEMPT AS HE LIFTS HIM UP AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE GROUND WITH AN INVERTED RELEASE SUPLEX!!
Persephone: FUCK!!! STURGIS MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET!!! REX IS CLUELESS AS NOW STURGIS COMES OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND TAKES DOWN REX WITH A SPRINGBOARD STUNNER!!! McAllister is down-and-out in the center of the ring as Shawn Sturgis now begins to valiantly climb up the turnbuckles!! Sturgis is perched on the top as he looks to end the match!
Rich Russillo: REX SHOOTS OFF THE GROUND AND LEAPS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! Both standing on the top turnbuckle, in a precarious situation as they both exchange strikes. Every sequence in this match has boiled down to this moment as these two could slip and fall at any given moment. STURGIS GRABS HIS HEAD, POSSIBLY LOOKING TO PUT HIM DOWN WITH A SUPER STUNNER OF SORTS!
James Peters: BUT REX BLOCKS THE ATTEMPT WITH PUNCHES TO THE MIDSECTION. Sturgis briefly staggered on the ropes as MCALLISTER STEPS OFF THE ROPES AND SETS OFF!! HE HOVERS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND PULLS HIM DOWN BY THE HEAD!!!! REXXXXXXX EFFFFFFFFFECCCCCCCCTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!! A SUPER REX EFFECT OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND THAT IS IT!! COVER!!
ONE………. TWO…………. THREEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Alive” by P.O.D blasts through the speakers as Persephone is seen jumping happily up and down, screaming in joy as she cheers for Rex. McAllister looks at her weirdly for a few second before the referee raises his hand in victory. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. REXXXXXXXXXXXX MCCCCCCCALLLLLLLISSSSSSTERRRRRRRRRR!!!
Persephone: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REXY SEXY HAS DONE IT!! MCALLISTER WINS, JUST LIKE I TOLD YOU SO!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! YOU KNOW HOW THE SAYING GOES. “ NEVER BET AGAINST THE REX MASTER!!”
James Peters: I’m pretty sure it’s “Never bet against the ace”. Anyways, Shawn Sturgis and Rex McAllister served a hard-hitting blockbuster extravaganza here in the main event of tonight’s Voltage. We may be airing from an empty arena, but these two surely made the EAW Universe from home be invested at every step of the way. McAllister is now beginning to accumulate interest and momentum as we are two weeks away from Grand Rampage.
Rich Russillo: If you thought before these two didn’t deserve to be in the Grand Rampage conversation, then this match surely changed your mind. Shawn Sturgis went to extreme heights while Rex McAllister showed why he is the strongest and most resilient in the game today. The other thirty-eight individuals best have had their eyes glued to this match because Sturgis and McAllister are walking into the match as a very possible contender to be the last man standing.
