Voltage 7/14/2019

 

(EAW intro plays.)

(Voltage fades into a highlight video of last week’s episode. Veena Adams is seen opening the show, hating her life, and announcing her vacation. Before she goes, she talks about the upcoming Voltage exclusive event, Bloodsport, and makes an EAW Championship match between Malcolm Jones and Charlie Marr! Cepheus St. Claire is seen defeating Shortfuse PAKA! PAKA is seen laying out the Big Boogie Bhampion, Woogieman, backstage later on that night! Newcomer Jayln Garcia would pick up a huge win over three other competitors and unintentionally draw the attention of Dr. Bethany Blue! The match between Korey Gaines and Tyler Wolfe is showcased, with Tyler’s terrible injury being the main focus (#GetWellSoon). Rex McAllister is shown defeating the Hall of Famer, Hades the Hellraiser in record time! Matt Daniels is seen setting up a number one contendership match for the New Breed Championship between Cepheus and another impressive newcomer, Kai Zolomon! The ongoing issues between Ms. 24/7, Consuela Rose Ava, and Jesse Barlow continued to grow, as a result of the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain for Pride. Barlow would cost Consuela her Voltage debut against Raven Roberts. To finish off the highlight video, Ms. Extreme is shown turning on her partner, Charlie, in the first main event of Season 13. That would allow Malcolm, and his partner, Andrea Valentine, to pick up a huge win and start their respective seasons off with a bang!)

(The scene cuts inside the sold out AllState Arena in Chicago, Illinois. The rabid Chicago fans are going crazy as “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami pumps through the sound system. White and gold pyro begins to explode from the stage, which causes the fans to cheer even louder in an attempt to be heard over the explosions! After the smoke clears and the music fades, James Peters and Rich Russillo are seen standing up at their broadcast booth. This week they sport custom made Talib Bari ‘Cloth Talk’ tee-shirts to show support to their fellow REVOLT brother.)

James Peters: Welcome everyone to another exciting, action packed edition of Sunday Night Voltage!

Rich Russillo: We have debuts galore tonight! Two newly signed Elitists in Katheryn Wicked and Serena Riot will square off against one another in our opening match tonight!

James Peters: Jesse Barlow makes his Season 13 in-ring debut tonight against another new signee, Dr. Bethany Blue!

Rich Russillo: :whew: She tried to invite me to her office earlier today and I had to politely decline. I’m not here to be another Daniel Chastain.

James Peters: :wow: You have to wonder if Consuela is gunna have revenge on her mind after Jesse cost her the match against Raven last week!

Rich Russillo: There’s no doubt in my mind that Consuela won’t make her presence felt in some capacity here tonight. She’s not going to let Jesse Barlow get away with what he did last week. Tonight, we’re going to learn more about Bloodsport. Terry Chambers will find out who he’s defending the Interwire Championship against.

James Peters: And from the backstage chatter and gossip both of us shamelessly listened too earlier today, Captain Charisma is going to have an announcement regarding something he’s dubbing an ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ match at Bloodsport.

Rich Russillo: All we know right now is apparently that’s going to be some kind of ladder match…

James Peters: :lupe: We stan a good ladder match.

Rich Russillo: Tonight’s show should be lit as always. One match I’m really looking forward to is the match between Ms. Extreme, Korey Gaines, and Jalyn Garcia. Garcia is extremely impressive, and he has a bright future here in Elite Answers Wrestling, but the former PURE Champion is someone who’s looking to be a major player here on Sunday Night Voltage. When you factor in Korey Gaines and his new found attitude, this is the match that could very well end up stealing the show!

James Peters: If that wasn’t enough to make the EAW Universe excited, The Woogieman, Noah Reigner, and Terry Chambers will all be making their Season 13 in-ring debuts tonight! Noah versus Terry is a mouth watering match between two Elitists who have never crossed paths before. I can’t wait to see how that match turns out!

Rich Russillo: It’s going to be a fun night, and you know something James? I don’t think we should waste any more time.

(James and Rich grin at one another and the camera cuts to the ring. Bella Braxton, dressed in skintight, white skinny jeans, a blush colored off the shoulder top, and strappy gold wedges, smiles into the camera and raises her microphone.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

(“Sweet but Psycho” by Ava Max begins to blast across the public address system. A scream echoes through the building as The psychotic Kitty’s music begins to play. Darkness shrouds the entrance before bright white lights illuminate a deviously smiling Katheryn Wicked.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT… WEIGHING IN AT 115 POUNDS… SHE’S ‘THE WICKED PRINCESS’ KATHERYN WICKED!!!

(The crowd greets Katheryn with a mixed reaction, unsure of how to react to the Voltage newcomer.)

James Peters: You know… there is something about this woman that terrifies me, Rich. Apparently, she’s completely unhinged, and has a lot of issues.

Rich Russillo: What you find terrifying about Katheryn Wicked is something I find extremely exciting. She seems perfect for Voltage!

James Peters: :wow: I guess I can’t argue with that considering the reputation Voltage has within Elite Answers Wrestling.

Rich Russillo: We have a reputation? :wow:

(Katheryn slips inside the ring and crawls to the center, laying down on her stomach and making herself right at home. Bella politely side-steps Katheryn, while Katheryn keeps her eyes locked on the entrance ramp.)

(“We Own The Night” by Hollywood Undead takes over, and smoke starts to fill the stage. Serena Riot crawls out onto the stage, barbed wire baseball bat in her hand, through the smoke. The crowd isn’t sure how to react.)

Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM CLEVELAND, OHIO… WEIGHING IN AT 150 POUNDS… SHE’S ‘THE FALLEN PROPHET’ SERENA RIOT!!!

James Peters: … is she crawling down to the ring? With a barbed wire baseball bat?

Rich Russillo: I mean… yeah. Serena Riot is literally crawling down to the ring, and I think she calls that thing ‘Revenge.’

James Peters: :skip: So we’re about to see Crazy versus Crazy?

Rich Russillo: :lupe: Vintage Voltage!

James Peters: :wow:

(James and Rich don’t have a lot to say, but inside the ring, Katheryn Wicked has a bright smile across her face. When Serena finally gets to the ring, she crawls underneath it, and Katheryn’s face lights up in delight. She sits up, spins herself right around, and claps her hands as Serena crawls through to the other side and rises to her feet.)

Rich Russillo: There are no words.

(Bella is making her way out of the ring and as she goes to take her seat, Serena holds out her bat to stop her.)

Crowd: :lupe:

(Serena wants the microphone, which makes everyone exhale the breath they were holding in, Serena climbs inside the ring. Katheryn remains sitting, but she looks extremely excited to hear what Serena has to say.)

Serena Riot (tapping the microphone): Testing… testing…

(She smirks, knowing she has the attention of everyone inside the AllState Arena.)

Serena Riot: If I haven’t made myself clear already this week, I am Serena Riot. I am the light that will shine in this dim, cruel world. Tonight, Katheryn Wicked and myself have the opportunity to show the EAW Universe who we are and what we stand for. We both know and can agree that we have a lot to prove tonight, and I see a lot of similarities between the two of us. We’re both… different.

(Katheryn has climbed to her feet and has her hands behind her back. She’s silently listening to Serena, unblinking, but curious as to where this is going.)

Serena Riot: Now Katie, I’ve had a lot to say about you this week, and you to me, but I’m going to make a proposal to you. I don’t want to waste my time fighting you in a standard wrestling match. I want to hurt you and I want to make you suffer. I want to make you bleed and scream, and I want to break every bone in your body. I want to take ‘Revenge’ and I want to slam it right into your skull, and then I want to pin you.

Crowd: :damn:

Katheryn Wicked: :oh:

Serena Riot: So why don’t we change the rules of this match ourselves and make this a hardcore match, and we can really have some fun with one another?

Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

James Peters: :damn: CAN THEY DO THAT?!

Rich Russillo: …..

(Katheryn’s eyes are dancing right now and she’s practically salivating over the sight of ‘Revenge’ cradled in Serena’s arms. She learns forward so everyone can hear her speak into the microphone that Serena is holding.)

Katheryn Wicked: I accept.

(The crowd erupts and both women flash each other rather sadistic smiles. The referee is unsure of what to do, but seeing as how both women have agreed to change the match to suit themselves, he finally just calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Rich Russillo: So I guess the referee is really going to allow this match to be contested under hardcore rules!!!!

James Peters: I’m being told that since both of these newcomers want this, Matt Daniels has given it the green light!

Rich Russillo: Katheryn Wicked and Serena Riot both wear sinister smiles on their faces as they circle one another! Serena is quick to swing ‘Revenge’ but Katheryn is able to duck and she leaps up! Dropkick takes ‘Revenge’ right out of Serena’s hands! Both women are locking up and with Serena having the size advantage in this match, she is quick to power Katheryn into the corner and unloads a series of knife edge chops to Katheryn’s chest! Serena driving her knee into Katheryn’s gut now, and she slams her head into Katheryn’s! Serena now with several more headbutts in succession but look at Katheryn! This crazy bitch is laughing!

James Peters: :lupe: Katheryn shoves Serena back and nails her with rapid fire forearms to the face! Serena stumbles back and Katheryn hooks the neck, spiking Serena’s head into the mat with a DDT!!! She flips Serena onto her back and digs her fingernails into Serena’s face! She drags her nails down the cheeks of Serena Riot, raking away flesh and face paint!

Rich Russillo: Little streams of blood are trickling down Serena’s cheeks but Katheryn has her hands locked around Serena’s neck now and she’s slamming the back of her head into the mat! Katheryn switches to a choke and all of this is legal, mind you.

James Peters: But Serena kicks her legs up and she is able to force Katheryn back onto the mat! Serena quickly switches to a mount position and she’s unloading those punches to Katheryn’s face right now! Katheryn fights her off and now she’s on top! Now she’s unloading punches to Serena! Serena is able to fight off Katheryn and shove her back, and that allows her enough time to get back up! Katheryn is up too!

Rich Russillo: Both women rush forward and Serena catches Katheryn with a knee to the gut that sends her up and over! Serena stomping away on Katheryn now! SHE PICKS KATHERYN UP NOW AND SLAMS HER DOWN WITH A SIDEWALK SLAM! SERENA IS BACK UP AND SHE’S LOOKING AROUND FOR ‘REVENGE!’

(Serena sees the barbed wire baseball bat laying in the corner. She quickly grabs it and slams it into her palm, smirking as the blood begins to leak from her palm.)

James Peters: SERENA IS HEADING BACK TO KATHERYN NOW! SHE’S GOT SOMETHING EVIL IN MIND!

Rich Russillo: KATHERYN IS BACK UP THOUGH AND SHE LOOKS EXCITED TO SEE SERENA WITH THAT BAT AGAIN! SERENA SWINGS AND KATHERYN CATCHES THE BAT WITH HER HANDS! KATHERYN IS LAUGHING RIGHT NOW! SHE IS LAUGHING EVEN THOUGH THAT BARBED WIRE IS DIGGING INTO HER HANDS!!! BOTH WOMEN ARE FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE BAT AND IT’S KATHERYN WHO IS ABLE TO RIP IT FROM SERENA’S HANDS!!!!

James Peters: KATHERYN WICKED TAKES THE BASEBALL BAT AND SHE SLAMS IT INTO THE GUT OF SERENA RIOT! SERENA DROPS TO HER KNEES AND KATHERYN RAISES THE BAT OVER HER HEAD AND BRINGS IT DOWN ACROSS SERENA’S BACK! SERENA FLATTENS OUT ON THE MAT AND KATHERYN GETS BEHIND HER AND PLACES THE BAT ACROSS SERENA’S FOREHEAD! SHE DIGS THE BARBS IN AND JERKS SERENA’S HEAD BACK!!!

Rich Russillo: BLOOD IS POURING FROM SERENA RIOT’S FOREHEAD AND KATHERYN SEEMS TO BE IN HEAVEN RIGHT NOW! SHE IS WRENCHING BACK ON SERENA’S NECK WITH THE BAT AND THE REFEREE IS ASKING SERENA IF SHE WANTS TO QUIT BUT ‘THE FALLEN PROPHET’ REFUSES! SERENA DIGS IN AND SHE STARTS DRAGGING HERSELF TOWARDS THE ROPES!!!

James Peters: Grabbing the ropes isn’t going to help! Katheryn doesn’t have to break this hold. She can keep it locked in until Serena passes out or figures out some way to get out of it!

Rich Russillo: Well that doesn’t matter because Serena has reached the ropes! Serena has her hands locked on the bottom rope and she’s using all of her upper body strength to pull herself forward. Katheryn lets go on her own accord and she slams the bat down into Serena’s kidney area!!! Serena pulls herself out of the ring and drops down to the mat, and look at Katheryn Wicked! Katheryn is standing in the ring, twirling the bat, with that evil smile on her face! I don’t know where the fuck EAW found these two women, but dear Gawd.

James Peters: :wow:

Rich Russillo: Katheryn reaches through the ropes and looks to grab Serena and drag her back into the ring but wait… SERENA JUST SLAMMED A TRASH CAN LID ACROSS KATHERYN’S FACE!!! KATHERYN FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES AND HITS THE GROUND, AND A BLOODIED SERENA RIOT IS BACK UP TO HER FEET! SHE BEGINS SLAMMING THE TRASH CAN LID DOWN ON KATHERYN! SHE IS BEATING THE SNOT OUT OF HER AND NOW SHE’S GOT ‘REVENGE’! SERENA KICKS KATHERYN OVER ONTO HER BACK AND TAKES ‘REVENGE’… RAKING THE BAT DOWN KATHERYN’S FACE!

James Peters: THESE BLOOD THIRSTY CHICAGO FANS ARE EGGING THESE TWO WOMEN ON AND I DON’T KNOW IF WE HAVE EVER HAD A DEBUT MATCH QUITE LIKE THIS ONE! KATHERYN WICKED’S FACE IS A CRIMSON MASK RIGHT NOW AND SERENA TOSSES THE BAT INSIDE THE RING! SHE GRABS KATHERYN BY THE HAIR AND WHIPS HER INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS!!!! KATHERYN SLAMS INTO THE STEEL AND SUBSEQUENTLY CURLS UP INTO A FETAL POSITION! SERENA IS ALL OVER HER NOW! SOCCER STYLE KICKS TO THE BACK AND KIDNEY AREA OF KATHERYN WICKED!!! SERENA CRACKS THAT TRASH CAN LID DOWN ACROSS KATHERYN’S BACK ONE MORE TIME AND JERKS HER UP BY THE HAIR! SHE THROWS KATHERYN BACK INSIDE THE RING, FOLLOWS HER IN, AND IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTT-

Rich Russillo: KATHERYN KICKS OUT!

James Peters: SERENA IMMEDIATELY CLIMBS TO HER FEET AND PULLS UP KATHERYN, HOOKING HER IN POSITION FOR HER VERSION OF THE PILEDRIVER THAT SHE CALLS PSYCHOSIS!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK AT KATHERYN! SHE IS BATTLING BACK! SHE SENDS SERENA UP AND OVER, AND TAKES A MOMENT TO COLLECT HERSELF! KATHERYN SCRAMBLES TO THE TOP ROPE AND WAITS FOR SERENA TO GET UP!!! KATHERYN FLIES OFF THE TOP AND SENDS SERENA DOWN WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! KATHERYN SLIDES OUT OF THE RING, LOOKING UNDER THE SKIRT FOR A WEAPON!

James Peters: AND SHE HAS A KENDO STICK! KATHERYN WICKED GETS BACK INSIDE THE RING WITH THAT KENDO STICK AND SHE BEGINS WHIPPING SERENA RIOT! SERENA IS EATING THOSE WICKED STRIKES, AND YOU CAN SEE THOSE WELTS ALREADY FORMING! KATHERYN BREAKS THE STICK OVER SERENA’S BACK AND SHE JERKS HER UP… WHIPPING HER INTO THE CORNER! KATHERYN RUNS AND SHE NAILS SERENA WITH A FLYING KNEE!!! SHE GRABS SERENA AND PULLS HER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING… AND SHE SPIKES SERENA’S HEAD INTO THE MAT WITH A DDT!!!! KATHERYN WICKED WITH THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRE-

Rich Russillo: SERENA GETS HER SHOULDER UP!!!!

James Peters: A frustrated look crosses the face of Katheryn Wicked and she slowly gets back to her feet. She scans the ring and locates ‘Revenge’, heading for that barbed wire bat! Katheryn gets her hands on that weapon and she heads back over to Serena! Katheryn raises the bat over her head BUT SERENA JUST GRABBED HER AND PULLED HER DOWN! SERENA WITH A ROLL UP!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRE-

Rich Russillo: KATHERYN KICKS OUT AND QUICKLY GETS TO HER FEET!!!

James Peters: BUT SERENA HAS ‘REVENGE’ BACK! SHE SWINGS AND LOOKS TO KNOCK KATHERYN OUT, BUT KATHERYN IS ABLE TO DUCK!! KATHERYN WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION OF SERENA, AND SHE TRIES TO GRAB THE BAT! SERENA QUICKLY RIGHTS HERSELF AND FENDS HER OFF. SERENA IS ABLE TO BOOT KATHERYN IN THE STOMACH AND SHE SLAMS THE BAT ACROSS KATHERYN’S BACK! KATHERYN IS TAKEN DOWN TO HER KNEES AND LOOK AT THAT SICK SMIRK ON SERENA’S FACE, RICH! SHE IS ABOUT TO END KATHERYN WICKED RIGHT NOW!

Rich Russillo: BUT KATHERYN CATCHES SERENA WITH A LOW BLOW! A PUNCH TO THE CUNT CAUSES SERENA TO STAGGER BACK AND DROP THE BAT! KATHERYN GRABS THE BAT AND SHE SLAMS IT INTO SERENA’S FACE!!! SERENA COLLAPSES TO THE MAT AND KATHERYN GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT SERENA IS FIGHTING BACK! SHE IS ABLE TO MUSCLE HER WAY OUT OF KATHERYN’S GRIP AND SHOVE HER BACK! KATHERYN DRIVES FORWARD FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT SERENA CATCHES HER WITH A DROP TOE HOLD! SERENA IS DROPPING HAMMER FISTS DOWN ON KATHERYN’S SKULL!!! SHE IS LOOKING TO KNOCK KATHERYN OUT RIGHT NOW AND SATISFIED THAT SHE’S DONE JUST THAT, SERENA IS NOW GOING TO THE TOP ROPE!!!!

James Peters: SHE GETS SERENA IN POSITION FOR BLACK WIDOW AND THIS TIME SHE HITS IT!!! ONCE AGAIN… KATHERYN WITH THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… KATHERYN WICKED!!!!

(“Sweet but Psycho” by Ava Max begins to blast across the public address system, and the fans get to their feet. The referee helps Katheryn up and raises her hand, and the blood covered blonde smiles sweetly.)

Rich Russillo: Jesus. What a debut match for Katheryn Wicked and Serena Riot! Both of these newcomers came out here tonight, determined to wrestle this match their own way, and put on a show.

James Peters: And they put on one hell of a show. I don’t even know what to say about the two of these women, but I can’t wait to see what they do next, and how their EAW careers progress.

Rich Russillo: That was an amazing win for Katheryn Wicked and an incredible effort from Serena Riot.

(Katheryn has climbed from the ring and is making her way up the ramp, while the referee checks on Serena. The camera zooms in on Serena, and despite coming up short, she has a smirk across her blood coated face. Voltage fades to commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Boxy Charm featuring Sienna Jade. Watch the future Hall of Fame Elitist unbox the July box and test all the products on her Instagram.)

(SCREEN BAR – “Earlier This Week”)

(Charlie Marr sits in first class as his plane approaches the beautiful French Polynesian island of Bora Bora. The Voltage Elitist glances out his window and is greeted with scenery that is to die for.)

Charlie Marr: I could definitely get used to frequenting places like this. Bora Bora is definitely fit for a champ.

(The scene jump cuts to the Four Seasons Resort in Bora Bora. The views from the resort are stunning. The camera fades in and Charlie Marr is seen sitting at a table at Arii Moana, the waterside, romantic thatched roof restaurant that is part of the resort. He wears dark grey dress slacks and a baby blue button down shirt that compliments his eyes. The sun is setting, providing an absolutely exquisite backdrop for Charlie’s meeting with Veena Adams.)

(Veena Adams walks into Arii Moana with an air of arrogance about her. She wears a form fitting cocktail dress, Louboutin heels, and her hair is swept back in a sleek ponytail. Charlie stands up as Veena is escorted to their table. The two shake hands, and Charlie even does the gentlemanly thing of pulling Veena’s chair out for her. Veena takes a seat, as Charlie returns to his.)

Veena Adams: How was your flight?

Charlie Marr: It was great.

(Veena nods her head and begins looking at the menu.)

Veena Adams: Feel free to indulge while you’re here. My Uncle Ryan is paying for this trip because I needed to get away.

(A smirk spreads across Charlie’s face. It’s not like he needs to be told twice to freely spend the Chairman’s money however he sees fit.)

Charlie Marr: I’ll make sure you send your Uncle Ryan a ‘thank you’ card.

(A beautiful waitress approaches their table and Charlie and Veena both place their drink orders. After she exits, Veena sits the menu down and looks across the table at Charlie. Her face is all business.)

Veena Adams: I assume you’re wondering why you’re here.

Charlie Marr: A number of reasons come to mind, and just so you know, I’m very open-minded. You’ve given me an EAW World Championship shot at Bloodsport, and that’s not something I’m taking for granted.

(Veena smiles sweetly.)

Veena Adams: I definitely appreciate your attitude, and that’s part of the reason why I personally selected you as Malcum’s opponent for Bloodsport. The other reason why I picked you is because you’re the only person left on Voltage who shares my vision and that deserves to be rewarded. Do you know how hard it was for me to get out of bed last weekend and go to that arena, knowing damn that the halls were going to be filled with bright-eyed, cum guzzling cockwhores who actually think they belong inside the wrestling ring? It destroyed my soul, Charlie, and it hurt me so badly to see them stepping into the ring and facing off against the men who bust their asses day in and day out to make sure this company succeeds.

(Veena pauses long enough for the waitress to sit their drinks down. The waitress attempts to take their order, but Veena promptly dismisses her.)

Veena Adams: You got a first hand look at how desperate these whores are when that fucking cunt Camille Jane Ava punched you in the face. She left you for dead last week, and because Malcum has a fetish for white women and wants to shove his microneedle dick inside Andrea, he tagged her in and let her humiliate you. You got pinned by a woman who on her best day couldn’t wrestle you in a fair match, and these two incidents are just two in the long list of injustices being done in this company right now.

(Charlie’s blue eyes have narrowed, as he thinks back to last week.)

Charlie Marr: Well I promise you this, Veena. Ms. Extreme isn’t going to get away with what she did to me last week. I have beaten her sister’s ass before, and I have no problem taking Ms. Extreme to task next and putting her in her place.

Veena Adams: That place is flat on her surgically repaired back, with her legs spread, ready for whatever man that wants to plug her holes. It’s a shame Jeffrey Epstein finally got arrested. I’m sure he knows someone who likes women that are of age with good child bearing hips. Surely there’s some kind of breeding farm or brothel that will take the Camille Jane Avas of the world and put them to work.

(Veena lets out a depressed sigh and that prompts Charlie to reach across the table and give her hand a comforting squeeze.)

Charlie Marr: I think I know where this conversation is going.

(Veena raises a perfectly arched eyebrow.)

Veena Adams: And where do you think it’s going, Charlie?

(Charlie removes his hand from Veena’s and gives her an arrogant smirk.)

Charlie Marr: You want to use me to do your dirty work.

Veena Adams: No, what I want is for you to win the EAW World Championship so I can stick it to Matty and make him regret the day he went behind my back and traded Vizzy away for Malcum. That set off a whole slew of backstage dealings that changed the look of Voltage, and that pisses me off. I don’t like when people pull the wool over my eyes, Charlie. I know you’re a very ambitious man, and I know you want to be the world champion more than anything. To win at Bloodsport, you would truly become ‘Main Event Marr’, and you would have the most prestigious title in our company around your waist. I am willing to help you win that belt, because there is no better person on Voltage right now that I can think of that deserves to be the face of the brand.

(Charlie doesn’t say anything for a moment, because truthfully, this is exactly what he had hoped would happen. He strokes his beard for a moment.)

Charlie Marr: What can I do for you in return?

(Veena doesn’t hesitate because that is what she had been hoping to hear.)

Veena Adams: You can help me destroy the four biggest problems on my roster.

Charlie Marr: I’m pretty sure I know who you’re referring too.

Veena Adams: I’m sure you do too.

(The waitress chooses that moment to return to the table. Veena and Charlie exchange conspiratorial smirks and turn their attention to their menus. The scene fades out.)

(Voltage returns to live action, and more specifically to the ringside area. We cut to Bella, who’s waiting with the microphone in her hands.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(“Gods and Monsters (Rock Cover)” by Lana Del Ray plays as the crowd claps along and Kai Zolomon appears at the stage. He takes this all in with a smirk before walking to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Melbourne Australia, weighing in at 231 pounds…THE KILL SWITCH, KAI…ZOLOMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Although coming up short last week in his match Kai Zolomon had a strong showing against Voltage’s upcoming prospects. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us tonight.

James Peters: Kai has come with a purpose tonight and there’s no doubt in my mind he’s not gonna be taken softly in this match.

(Kai Zolomon enters the ring and quickly jumps up to the turnbuckle and raises his hands in the air again admiring the crowd’s anticipation for this match as “Gods and Monsters” fades off. “Breakin’ Outta Hell” by Airbourne then plays up to massive cheers from the crowd as PAKA comes out to the stage, he gives a murderous smirk before starting the walk down to the ring)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Mie Province Japan, weighing in at 225 pounds…SHORTFUSE, PAKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Hard to believe Kai weighs more than PAKA :lupe: I bet PAKA is outraged still at Woogieman from last week but now he has to shift his attention to someone of a higher caliber, Kai Zolomon.

James Peters: Did you just say Kai Zolomon is better than the Woogieman?!?!?? I’ll have you know…

(As the arguing of the commentators continue, PAKA enters the ring and raises his two fists in the air. He turns around and gives a stern look to Kai Zolomon as Kai casually has the middle finger stuck out at him. “Breakin’ Outta Hell” fades off as both men slowly start circling around each other and the bell rings)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: Therefore we can agree Provencal is better- oh this match is underway alright. Both men locking up, PAKA going behind for a waist lock. PAKA letting go, LARIAT- NO KAI DUCKS UNDER!

Kai Zolomon: HAH FUCK YOU!

PAKA: RAWR!!!!!!!

Kai Zolomon: Wait what-

James Peters: PAKA DISMEMBERING KAI ZOLOMON WITH A CLOTHESLINE! Kai is already down and out by that clothesline as PAKA is wasting no time going to town on him. PAKA slapping him around as Kai is trying to fight back. PAKA giving him room to breathe now as Kai is quickly bringing himself to his feet, PAKA running at Kai BUT KAI MOVING OUT OF THE WAY! Kai pushing PAKA into the corner, Kai running… DROPKICK TO A CORNERED PAKA! PAKA falling into a sitting position as Kai is moving back to the opposite corner. Kai taking a run, BASEBALL SLIDE DROPKICK TO PAKA!

Rich Russillo: The crowd is certainly feeling the intensity in this match as the cheering grows louder and louder. Kai pulling PAKA out of the corner and into the center of the ring. PAKA WITH A PALM THRUST TO KAI PUSHING HIM BACK! But Kai taking into a full sprint now, SLINGBLADE- NO PAKA GRABBING ONTO HIM, BACK SUPLEX SLAMMING KAI DOWN TO THE GROUND! Kai certainly feeling it now grabbing his back, PAKA watching as Kai is staggering to his feet. Kai taking a run, SPINEBUSTER- NO! KAI WITH AN ELBOW FORCING PAKA TO LET GO BEFORE IMPACT!

James Peters: Both men falling to the ground, they’re both trying to get up steadily now. Kai up a little bit quicker, KAI WITH A STIFF FOREARM! Kai not stopping there as he’s grabbing the head of PAKA, OH KAI RAINING DOWN FOREARMS TO THE HEAD OF SHORTFUSE PAKA! PAKA falling to a knee here, Kai pushing him down. KAI STOMPING HIS FOOT ONTO THE HEAD OF PAKA! Kai keeping his foot on the head of PAKA, Rich do you see blood because I definitely see blood.

Rich Russillo: :damn: I do too James. The Ref finally has seen enough as he’s pushing Kai away from a now bleeding PAKA. Kai with a smirk as he’s bringing PAKA up again, FOREARM! But wait PAKA is showing life, PALM STRIKE! Kai going for another forearm- PAKA BLOCKING IT, A KICK TO THE LEG OF KAI ZOLOMON! Kai bouncing on one foot now grabbing his leg in pain, ELBOW BY PAKA BRINGING KAI DOWN! Kai dragging himself away as PAKA follows closely behind him, PAKA bringing him up from behind. BUT KAI WITH A SNAPMARE BRINGING PAKA OVER! Kai taking a big step back, KICK TO THE BACK OF PAKA! Both men falling over in exhaustion BUT KAI FALLS RIGHT ONTO PAKA, PIN!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: KICKOUT! Kai looks stressed out but it looks like he’s not done, what is he gonna do now? OH MY GOD, HE’S SMEARING PAKA’S BLOOD ALL OVER HIS FACE!

Rich Russillo: THAT’S DISGUSTING!

James Peters: I like it. Kai is dragging him into the corner, he’s propping him up. Looks like he’s going for that jumping cutter from the top rope- PAKA PUSHING HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE! Kai stumbling down to the ground, DIVING HEADBUTT BY PAKA! PAKA again showing that determination he has for winning this match right now. PAKA taking to the ropes right now, KAI SLIDING UNDER PAKA RIGHT NOW! PAKA keeping to a run right now, BUT KAI COMING IN WITH A DROPKICK MAKING PAKA BOUNCE AGAINST THE ROPES AND BACK DOWN! PAKA getting up on his own now but Kai is closely watching him, Kai grabbing him by the top of his head now, KNEE TO THE HEAD OF PAKA! Kai pulling him up, BUT PAKA SLAPPING THE TASTE OUT OF KAI’S MOUTH!

Rich Russillo: Kai not looking happy now as he stares into the eyes of PAKA, KAI SLAPPING BACK! Both men are going at it now each slapping each other harder than before- KAI COMING IN WITH A KNIFE EDGE CHOP SURPRISING PAKA! PAKA grabbing Kai now, he’s pushing back his head, OW A CHOP BY PAKA THAT ECHOS ALL AROUND THE ARENA! Kai trying to get some offense in but that chop has him weakened, PAKA easily pushing him down to the ground as he’s going up to the top rope again. SHOOTING STAR PRESS!

James Peters: No Rich I’m pretty sure that’s another diving headbutt.

Rich Russillo: Yeah yeah whatever. Kai left defenseless at the moment as PAKA has him where he wants him. Fireman’s carry position by PAKA I think he’s looking for a Compact Driver he’s looking straight at the corner- Kai Zolomon trying to elbow himself out of it, he’s nailing repeating elbows to the head of PAKA hindering the inevitable. BUT PAKA STILL GOING, COMPACT DRIVER! KAI SLAMMED INTO THE CORNER, PAKA GOING FOR THE PIN THIS MIGHT BE OVER!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: KICK OUT BY KAI! PAKA is fuming now as he’s slamming his hands down to the mat. PAKA getting up as Kai is still laid out on the ground at the moment. PAKA is urging him to get up also as Kai is starting to show signs of life getting to a knee. PAKA is wasting no time grabbing Kai, KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT! BOTH MEN ARE FLOORED! Kai I think is finally starting to bleed behind all that blood as he looks to the lights and PAKA is grabbing tight to the ropes trying to pull himself to his feet.

Rich Russillo: PAKA getting up and Kai slowly following, both men have this mentality to keep going and it’s astonishing. PAKA coming in, FOREARM STRIKE! Kai stumbling back, KAI RETALIATES WITH A FOREARM BACK! BOTH MEN WITH ANOTHER INTENSE BACK AND FORTH IN THIS MATCH! KAI, PAKA, KAI, PAKA, KAI, PAKA! Kai retaliating with one forearm after another as PAKA is trying to shield himself from impact. KAI WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT FORCING PAKA TO LEAN OVER! Kai grabbing him by the side of the head and dragging him to the middle of the ring, CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER! KAI CONNECTING WITH SCREW THIS! PAKA falling right into a sitting position as Kai kips up to his feet with a sudden burst of energy in him. Kai pushing him down, ANOTHER PIN ATTEMPT!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: KICK OUT! Kai Zolomon is shocked, after all the brutality both men went through I’m shocked they’re even breathing right now. Kai is getting to his feet, bringing PAKA up by the arm as well. Irish whip to the corner by Kai, Kai taking a step back into a RUN, CLOTHESLINE- NOBODY HOME! PAKA MOVING OUT OF THE CORNER! PAKA quickly grabbing Kai, PAKA THROWING KAI SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! PAKA pulling Kai out of the ringpost now he’s bringing him up, KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT- NO KAI DUCKS UNDER! HE KEEPS TO A RUN, DROPKICK! PAKA hasn’t fallen but he’s certainly weakened by Kai’s offense, Kai WITH A CLOTHESLINE THROWING PAKA OVER THE TOP ROPE!

Rich Russillo: Kai is on the apron now, looks like he’s running up to the top turnbuckle what is he thinking of here!! PAKA is dazed but he’s up to his feet, CROSSBODY TO RINGSIDE! Kai having total disregard for his safety as he soars off the top rope. Kai propping PAKA onto the apron, whatever he’s thinking shouldn’t be good. Kai trying to steady himself on the apron, DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! OH MY GOD! PAKA IS CRACKED IN HALF AS KAI PUSHES HIM INTO THE RING! Kai taking a breather outside of the ring as the Ref is checking on PAKA at the moment. Kai quickly going back into the ring, he’s ignoring the Ref as he’s taken a hold of PAKA- PAKA PALM THRUSTING KAI RIGHT TO THE GUT! Kai clutching at his gut leaving an opening for PAKA, SPINEBUSTER! Kai planted right onto the ground as the crowd is cheering for PAKA’s sudden signs of life.

James Peters: But could you possibly think how much more either one of them could take? THERE’S SO MUCH BLOOD EVERYWHERE! Kai finally getting to his feet, he’s taking a run at PAKA, BUT PAKA WITH A BELLY TO BELLY THROW! But it looks like Kai isn’t done as he’s running at PAKA again, ANOTHER BELLY TO BELLY THROW! Kai taken off his feet once again as PAKA has him grounded. Kai trying to scramble away trying to get away from PAKA’s onslaught but PAKA already has him by the hair. BUT KAI RETALIATING WITH A BACK ELBOW FORCING PAKA BACK! PAKA stumbling back as Kai turns around, CLOTHESLINE TO PAKA! Kai jumping up to the top rope right now, PAKA is back up to his feet, MISSILE DROPKICK! Kai bringing PAKA up, LARIAT- NO! PAKA DUCKS UNDER, PAKA WITH A CHOP- NO KAI BLOCKS IT! KAI GOING LOW FOR A LEG SWEEP- NO! PAKA JUMPS OVER! PAKA GOING FOR A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP- NO! KAI MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! KAI ROLLING OUT OF THE RING, OH MY GOD!

Rich Russillo: That was certainly a heart racing back and forth now as both men try and catch a breath-

PAKA: HEY MERDE!

Rich Russillo: Doesn’t that mean shit? PAKA WITH A HEADBUTT SUICIDE DIVE TO KAI ZOLOMON ON THE OUTSIDE! PAKA executes the Wrecking Ball Plancha as now he’s wasting no time rolling Kai back into the ring to go for the pin attempt- BUT WAIT KAI IS FIGHTING BACK NAILING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH ON THE BACK OF PAKA’S HEAD! But PAKA easily overthrowing him making Kai wobbly, Kai being put up into a fireman’s carry again. PAKA running, COMPACT DRIVER! KAI KNOCKED INSIDE OUT, PAKA GOING FOR THE PIN NOW!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: WAIT! KAI PUT HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE, PIN BREAK! This match continues as PAKA isn’t happy. PAKA dragging Kai to the center of the ring, he’s moving back. SENTON- NO! KAI GOT THE KNEES UP! NOW BOTH MEN ARE DOWN ON THE GROUND, Kai trying to bring himself up as PAKA is down. It’s now or never for Kai Zolomon at this moment, Kai finally pulling himself up as PAKA is starting to crawl. Kai going to the ropes, BASEBALL SLIDE TO PAKA! Kai wasting no time again bringing him up to his feet, SHORT ARM ELBOW SMASH- NO PAKA DUCKS UNDER, KAI GOING FOR A CLOTHESLINE- PAKA DUCKING UNDER THAT ONE TOO! PAKA with a irish whip throwing Kai into the corner, he’s taking a step back, SHOTGUN DROPKICK! Kai pushed back into the corner in a sitting position now as PAKA sees the perfect opportunity. RUNNING HIP ATTACK TO KAI ZOLOMON! PAKA bringing Kai out of the corner, A SLAP TO THE FACE! Kai didn’t like that as he’s staring a hole through PAKA right now.

Kai Zolomon: Cmon do it again.

Rich Russillo: Kai challenging PAKA to give him his worse, ANOTHER SLAP TO THE FACE OF KAI! Kai touching his face as he’s pointing to it again, Kai is giving PAKA a free shot he should take advantage of this. ANOTHER SLAP- NO KAI GRABS THE HAND OF PAKA! KAI WITH A STRAIGHT JAB TO THE NOSE OF PAKA! Kai turning him around, DRAGON SLEEPER! BLOODBEND IS LOCKED IN AS PAKA WAS CAUGHT COMPLETELY OFF GUARD BY THE OFFENSE OF KAI ZOLOMON! Kai has that dragon sleeper locked in good but I don’t think PAKA has any intention of tapping at the moment as he’s still trying to fight back. Kai loosening the hold what is he thinking about doing, ROLLING CUTTER!

James Peters: But Kai isn’t going for the pin, NO HE’S LOCKING IN THE DRAGON SLEEPER AGAIN! THAT MAD MAN! There’s no need to check on PAKA Ref, he’s already out cold. The Ref checking anyways I guess. The Ref raising his hand, it drops, one. The Ref doing it again, it drops, that’s two. The Ref doing it for the last time- NO KAI IGNORING IT, ROLLING CUTTER! Kai wanted to inflict more pain upon PAKA and I think it’s clear to see he’s done just that, Kai’s going for the pin, it’s already over.

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Gods and Monsters (Rock Cover)” plays up again as Kai Zolomon gets to his feet, bloody and battered. He wipes the blood off his face as the Ref raises his hand in victory)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, KAI…ZOLOMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: This was a fast paced, intense, and we can’t forget bloody match between these two Elitist tonight.

James Peters: In the end Kai Zolomon came out on top, he’s coming in full speed for that New Breed Title, and as it was shown tonight, nobody will stop him.

(The camera takes a final shot of the celebrating Kai Zolomon before fading to the backstage area.)

(The Big Boogie Bhampion, The Woogieman, is shown standing in front of a monitor. With him are two members of the Chicago PD, as well as a battered man who is recognized as the biker Shortfuse PAKA was fighting with earlier in the week at a local bar. They have just finished watching the hellacious match between Shortfuse PAKA and Kai Zolomon.)

Officer #1: Is that guy?

Biker Guy: That would be him.

The Woogieman: A real bad apple, that one. He assaulted me last week while I was giving an interview, and is obviously a danger to society.

Officer #2: So I take it the name ‘Shortfuse PAKA’ isn’t just a play on words?

(The Woogieman shakes his head.)

The Woogieman: He’s an old, angry bastard. His temper gets the better of him and that’s no way to live.

Biker Guy: I can vouch for that because my buddies and I were just minding our own business the other night. I definitely want to press charges against this guy.

(The two officers look at one another and sigh.)

Officer #1: I guess we have no choice but to arrest this man.

(The Woogieman does his best to hide the smile that is threatening to break out across his face. He clears his throat and nods his head.)

The Woogieman: I think that’s a good decision. Shortfuse PAKA is nothing but a problem!

(It’s at that moment the referee comes through the curtain, along with Shortfuse PAKA. PAKA isn’t in the best shape, but he’s smiling regardless. He knows he just went through one hell of a battle and it’s clear he’s pretty proud of the damage he did to Kai Zolomon.)

(The officers nod at one another and walk up to the referee and PAKA. PAKA’s eyes open wide, and the referee looks a little nervous.)

Shortfuse PAKA: What the hell is this?!

Officer #2: Shortfuse PAKA? You are under arrest for assault and battery.

Shortfuse PAKA: WHAT?!

(The Woogieman and the biker from the other night appear in front of PAKA, and PAKA narrows his eyes at both of them.)

Shorfuse PAKE: YOU RAT BASTARDS!

Officer #1: You have the right to remain silent… anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law…

(The first officer continues to read PAKA his miranda rights as the second officer begins to handcuff PAKA. They get the Elitist cuffed and begin leading him away. PAKA fights them every step of the way, but eventually the second officer brings out a stun gun and stuns PAKA, taking the fight right out of him! They drag PAKA out of the scene, leaving The Woogieman standing there with the biker. Woogie looks at his new found friend and extends his hand.)

The Woogieman: You did the right thing in pressing charges, my guy.

Biker Guy: Hopefully justice will be served.

(The exit the scene together as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Pleasant Holidays, highlighting their vacation packages for Bora Bora. Veena Adams and Charlie Marr are seen exploring the island, swimming in the lagoons, petting stingrays, and enjoying the sunset on the porch of Veena’s overwater bungalow. :wow:)

( SCREEN BAR – “Earlier This Week” )

(The camera fades into scene to a large mansion in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. There are two cars sitting in the driveway; one being a Black 1968 Ford Mustang and the other being a blue 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS. The camera pulls back as a car drives through the gate and parks away from both vehicles before both Matt Daniels and Mia Nikolas make their exit.)

Mia Nikolas: I’m really hoping that we haven’t travelled all this way for nothing. But I did tell Theron, ‘if you’re going to come to Voltage, I’m going to come to you.’

Matt Daniels: Unfortunately I’m hoping the same, but we’re not going to get anywhere if we were to sit and wait for him to get in contact with us. If we’re going to want to get Theron back to where he should be – we’re the people that are going to need to put our front foot forward first.

(Mia takes a deep sigh as the two approach the door.)

Mia Nikolas: I just hope that he’s actually willing to speak. It’s been two weeks and I’ve tried my hardest to get anything out of him. This isn’t like him. We might not talk for months, but when one is trying to get in contact with the other – there isn’t any hesitation.

Matt Daniels: There’s no need to worry; sometimes people need to work things out themselves before anyone else is able to step in to help.

(The two make their way up to the door and ring the doorbell. A giant gong blasts through the house and initially after that there’s nothing but silence. Mia seems like she’s about to call out, but she hesitates as he looks towards Matt Daniels who nods his head.)

Mia Nikolas: THERON… Theron it’s me, Mia.

(There are footsteps heard from inside the house as Mia’s eyes light up before the door opens. The hint of a smile crosses the face of CC until it’s revealed that it isn’t Theron, but instead an older woman who seems to be a housecleaner.)

Housecleaner: Oh… Mia. As much as I believe that Theron needs to see you – he’s refusing to see any visitors.

Mia Nikolas: I know; I’ve been trying to get in contact with him for the last two weeks, but he hasn’t responded to any of my calls or my messages. I know that he’s told you that he doesn’t want to see anyone, but we need to see him. He can’t hide here forever.

Matt Daniels: Sorry, ma’am, but I believe the best course of action is to allow us to speak to him.

(The house cleaner shoots daggers towards CC who remains stern; Mia places her hand on the door as the house cleaner begins to close it.)

Mia Nikolas: Please…

(The house cleaner looks back over her shoulder before looking back at Mia as…)

Theron Nikolas: Let them in.

(The house cleaner looks at both Mia and CC before nodding her head and opening the door. Mia walks straight through to see Theron standing across the house at the backdoor. He’s covered in sweat, a white sweat towel hanging around his neck. He doesn’t seem pleased at the sight of his guests, but nonetheless he remains relatively calm at the sight of his sister. His eyes shoot directly towards CC as he walks through the door. Theron doesn’t hide the disdain for anyone with an ounce of power in EAW, shaking his head and the hint of a smirk crosses his face as he grits his teeth.)

Theron Nikolas: It’s safe to say that neither of you are here to just say hello then.

(Theron walks into the kitchen, grabbing a small glass and cracking a bottle of Jack. He pours the glass and takes a sip as both Mia and CC follow.)

Matt Daniels: Well, I think it’s safe to say that we were going to get nowhere waiting for you to get in contact with us and begin working towards getting back to where we know you should be.

Theron Nikolas: And, where is that exactly?

Matt Daniels: I didn’t come all this way to play games, Theron. I didn’t draft you to Voltage so you could sit at home and sulk over the fact you lost the Answers World Championship at Pain for Pride.

Theron Nikolas: Who said that I’ve been sitting here sulking?

(Theron chuckles as CC looks back slightly intrigued. Mia stands in the doorway just watching, more so not willing to intervene and get in the way of the situation that could be brewing.)

Theron Nikolas: I’m not going to lie – losing the Answers World Championship cut deep. It’s the toughest blow that I’ve ever had to deal with – but, I take a few weeks away and give myself the time to get my head around everything that not only happened, but is going through my own head and suddenly you and Mia are knocking on my door like I’ve done something wrong. I think it’s people like you, Matthew, that wanted me as far away from this business as I could be. I gave you the separation that EAW wanted, and almost immediately you’re coming crawling back.

Matt Daniels: Who said that I wanted you away from Voltage, Theron? I didn’t want you on Voltage, Theron – you wouldn’t be with the company at all.

Theron Nikolas: So, you’re supposed to be my saviour?

Matt Daniels: Not at all. But, I’m sure that you’d be happy to know that there’s someone with an ounce of power that’s going to give you the opportunity that you always wanted.

Theron Nikolas: And – and what exactly is that opportunity meant to be?

(The hint of a smile crosses the face of CC face before answering.)

Matt Daniels: The opportunity to compete without the fear that anybody is going to do anything possible to make sure that you can’t stand. I don’t like the things that you did on Dynasty, but unlike a lot of people – I’m willing to look at the reasons to why you did everything that you did. I’m not going to ignore what happened on Showdown back in 2017. I’m not going to ignore the fact that you gave absolutely everything you could muster into not just chasing the EAW World Championship, but establishing your name as not only one of the top names that would carry this company into the future, but arguably the top name to carry this company the future. I know what you went through. I know that every time you managed to take a step forward that they did everything in their power to knock you back two. They made you the only person that had to qualify for that years King of Elite Tournament, and you ran the gauntlet and won the entire thing. You walked out and countlessly proved that there was something absolutely special about you. But, sooner or later – it’s only human nature to bite back when your back is pushed up against the wall. Those months of torment; those months of constantly coming so close to capturing something that you were working so hard to obtain only for someone to rip it away when you were fingertips away – it was all fuel that was just waiting to ignite. Everything that you did on Showdown and Dynasty stemmed from everything that you went through. The need to keep hold of that Answers World Championship was greater than the need to be a great champion in the eyes of everyone else. Their careers didn’t matter. Nobody mattered, Theron. Nobody but you.

Theron Nikolas: And yet, here I stand no longer the Answers World Champion. How far did everything I did really get me?

Matt Daniels: That’s not the question that I care about, Theron. The question I have to ask; are sitting here at home because you’re no longer champion – or the fact that you look back the reign that sits at the longest reigning Answers World Champion of all time and can’t find any pride in what you’ve achieved?

(Theron grits his teeth as the smile returns to the face of CC.)

Matt Daniels: You know where you stand in the eyes of the board of directors and you know how important the opportunity that I’ve offering really is.

Theron Nikolas: I should be proud, right? I should be proud in what I managed to achieve. I had the entire company chomping at my heels to cut me down; to take away the championship they believed that I held hostage. I was… I believed I was a God Emperor. It took the greatest match in company history to take away that championship – something that any champion should be able to find pride in – but, I stand here feeling empty. I burned bridges. I turned the entire company against me. I forced the man that created EAW away and into retirement. I don’t give a fuck about what anyone else thinks –

Matt Daniels: It’s not about what everyone else thinks, Theron! It’s about what you think. If you were proud of what you did – you would have walked in at the draft and did everything you could have to get that championship back.

Theron Nikolas: You’re right. I’m not proud. I haven’t been happy for a long time, Matthew and for months I did everything in my power to find something that I could take pride in. The match with Jamie O’Hara at King of Elite; the match at Pain for Pride – two moments in eight months where I felt like I was the champion that I could be. Two moments where it felt like I was a great as I know that I am.

(In one mouthful Theron finishes the glass of whiskey.)

Theron Nikolas: I tried my fucking hardest to allow everything to roll off of the back of my shoulders. I tried to believe that there wasn’t anything said that could crack the armour that I wore. But, CC – do you know what it’s like to fight for everything you wanted; to fight for the main reason that you’re in this business – to dream about how you would conquer this business and it be nothing like you imagined? That’s what has been running through my fucking mind constantly. Do you know it’s like to what people that you fucking know that you’re better than be fucking praised for the things that you should have been?

Matt Daniels: But, you can’t do anything if you sit at home and do nothing.

Theron Nikolas: Who said anything about sitting at home and doing nothing?

(Mia steps forward in a rush of excitement.)

Mia Nikolas: So, you’re going to go to Voltage?!

Theron Nikolas: I don’t know.

(Mia takes a deep sigh as she drops her head.)

Theron Nikolas: Listen – there has been a lot of that I have to work out in my own head, and it didn’t hurt to recover from everything I went through at Pain for Pride. I will take everything said into consideration and I’ll make my decision on when I’m coming back when I see fit.

Matt Daniels: I want you there next week.

Theron Nikolas: I-

Matt Daniels: Or, maybe you’re the coward that everyone thinks you are.

(Theron goes wide eyed as Mia steps between the two.)

Mia Nikolas: Please, please. Theron, if you’re not going to do it for yourself – do it for me. There’s no harm in getting back to where you want to be.

(Theron grits his teeth as his eyes remained locked on CC before finally turning his head towards Mia.)

Theron Nikolas: Fine. I’ll be there. But, Matthew – if you turn out like everyone else in your position that I’ve had even an ounce of trust in… I’m going to rip out your fucking throat.

Matt Daniels: Thank you, Theron.

Theron Nikolas: Now, get the fuck out of my house.

Matt Daniels: That’s all that we wanted, Theron. I can’t wait to see you next week.

(CC makes his leave as Mia steps towards Theron in pulls him in for a hug.)

Mia Nikolas: Please don’t let me down, Theron…

(Mia looks up at her brother before making her exit behind CC. Theron picks up the glass and smashes it against the wall as the camera backs out of the kitchen and fades to black.)

(Voltage fades back to present day, and more specifically, to the backstage area. Sofia Clarke is standing by, looking as flawless as always. She wears a strapless, fit and flare knee length dress and gladiator style sandals that lace up her toned calves.)

Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome my guest at this time… the EAW Specialists Champion… Andrea Valentine!

(The crowd inside the arena can be heard cheering as a smiling Andrea Valentine steps into the picture. She wears a pair of destroyed denim shorts, her own t-shirt that has been cut and modified to show off her perfect figure, and a pair of Nike cross trainers. The Specialists Championship is across her shoulder.)

Sofia Clarke: Andrea, last week you made your Voltage debut by scoring a huge victory in a tag team match alongside the EAW World Champion, Malcolm Jones. You helped him defeat the team of Charlie Marr and Ms. Extreme. How did it feel to be victorious in your first match on the gold brand?

Andrea Valentine: Winning just feels great, regardless of when and where it happens. I walked into the match last week without any doubts about Malcolm’s and my respective abilities to work together and defeat Ms. Extreme and Charlie Marr. That team was bound to implode, and when it happened, we simply took advantage of the situation and made the most of it. It felt fantastic to start the season off with a win, and I look forward to seeing what else Season 13 has in store for me.

Sofia Clarke: By your own admission, Season 12 was rather up and down for you, but towards the end, you really stepped up and got yourself back on track. Since Terminus, you have been on a roll, capturing your second Specialists Championship, and defending it at Pain for Pride in an incredibly gruesome match. You followed that up a week later by winning the Clash of Champions match at the Draft Show, and we’ve already spoken about last week. Have you changed anything about your approach to these situations?

Andrea Valentine: I have done what I always do and that’s work hard, Sofia. I know that eventually everything is going to pay off for me, and I just keep going. Being a professional wrestler is my dream job, and showing the world that I’m more than just eye candy along the way is just icing on the cake. When I won the Specialists Championship back at Terminus, that was a moment I will never forget. I wasn’t sure if I would ever get a chance to compete for this belt again, and I think it goes without saying that this title means everything to me. I had to go through hell against Consuela to win this, and when I sat on the top of that ladder and took a moment to just simply live and take everything in, my heart filled with pride. Season 12 was a struggle at the worst of times, but I did my best to take everything in stride and keep myself focused. I went through a lot of firsts, a lot of situations I wasn’t sure I was equipped to handle, but I don’t really think I would change a thing about the overall journey itself. I feel like I had to go through all of the adversity, all the setbacks, and whatever else you want to call it, so I could find myself in this position right now. I’m stronger than I have ever been, both mentally AND physically. I know that I can get put through the ringer, and still come out the victor, and that experience is only going to help me this season as I continue to reign as the EAW Specialists Champion.

Sofia Clarke: I don’t think there is anyone who would argue with the fact that you’re as tough as they come, and a consummate professional when it comes to handling your business.

(Sofia’s voice is full of respect for the woman that stands beside her.)

Sofia Clarke: On August 10th, Voltage has their first exclusive free-per-view of the season, Bloodsport. As of right now, you’re not scheduled to defend your championship, and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who’s really talking about wanting to become the Specialists Champion.

Andrea Valentine: I think the fact that it’s a new season, everyone just wants to get their feet under them first before they start name-dropping and calling people out. The draft really shook up the rosters because when Empire was eliminated, this company changed. None of us can deny that, and everyone who came from Empire now has more opportunity than ever before. I know that there are women who would love to take this belt off of me, and I know that for me personally, I will happily defend this championship against anyone. There are a lot of new faces in this company, and some women from Empire who didn’t get a chance to challenge for this championship while we were competing on Thursdays. I want everyone to get their chance if this is the belt they decide they want to come after. My first Specialists Championship reign wasn’t anything to write home about, and that’s why I’m determined to make this one count and make it one for the ages.

Sofia Clarke: Are you issuing an open challenge for Bloodsport, Andrea?

(A bright smile crosses the blonde’s beautiful face and she looks down at the championship that rests on her shoulder.)

Andrea Valentine: If that’s what you want to call it, then sure. I’m not about to miss the first Voltage free-per-view of the season, and I can’t wait to see who steps up and challenges me for this championship. I fully plan on being a fighting champion, and that means taking on anyone and everyone, in whatever kind of match we can possibly compete in. I know the whole idea of Bloodsport is to go for broke, and having gone through a deathmatch and a barbed wire cage match, among some others, I know that I’ll be just fine when it comes to this show and I’m excited for the challenge.

Sofia Clarke: I love that! Before I let you go, I want to ask you one last question. Last week, I stood in this very spot interviewing Terry Chambers, and he didn’t exactly hold back on letting the entire EAW Universe know he wants another shot at you. Twice you’ve gotten the better of him, Andrea, and a lot people think you have his number. Do you have anything you’d like to say to Terry in response to what he said last week?

(Andrea lets out a little laugh.)

Andrea Valentine: I think everyone knows that I don’t back down from anyone. It doesn’t matter to me who’s standing opposite of me inside the ring. I will bring everything I have to whatever match, and if that includes a third match against Terry, then I’m ready for it. He will end up doing what he doesn’t want to do, and that’s loose to me for a third time.

Sofia Clarke: :wow: Thank you for your time tonight, Andrea, and I wish you the best of luck here on Voltage.

(The camera takes a final shot of Andrea and Sofia, before fading to the ringside area.)

(The camera focuses in on Bella, who’s in the middle of the ring.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre plays as deafening cheers sound around the arena as The Woogieman comes out with his Big Boogie Bhampionship. He raises it in the air as the crowd praises him for his presence.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Jacksonville Florida, weighing in at 260 pounds…HE IS THE BIG BOOGIE BHAMPION, THE…WOOGIEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: :wow: it’s always great to be blessed with Woogieman coming down to the ring.

Rich Russillo: Yes and even better, he’s fighting today! This day couldn’t get anymore better. How cool was it that he stood up for that biker guy and got PAKA arrested?!

(Woogieman enters the ring and goes to the top rope and raises the Big Boogie Bhampionship as the crowd goes berserk. He drops down as “If Ya Smell” fades away. “Headache” by Dark Lotus plays to boos from the crowd as Paul Joshua comes out to the ring, he claps his hands together and does a loud yell before making his way to the ring)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Columbus Ohio, weighing in at 247 pounds…PAUL…JOSHUA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: If PAKA wasn’t good enough for Woogieman now he’s put himself in a position where he’s facing this freak of nature Paul Joshua.

Rich Russillo: Woogieman said he wouldn’t underestimate Paul Joshua and that’s a valid statement, even though he lost last week that doesn’t mean he’s not someone to mess with. Woogieman is going to be in for a fight tonight.

(Paul Joshua enters the ring and raises both his hands in the air as The Woogieman watches on, one fist raises to his jaw. “Headache” fades off as both men get ready.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: This match is underway right now as both men are starting to circle around each other- PAUL COMING IN WITH A GUT KICK TO WOOGIEMAN! HE THROWS WOOGIEMAN INTO THE CORNER! WOOGIEMAN LEFT DEFENSELESS AS PAUL IS KNOCKING THE WIND OUT OF HIM! Paul with another irish whip, but Woogieman reverses with a irish whip of his own. Woogieman taking a run CLOTHESLINE TO PAUL! Paul Joshua certainly felt that as he stumbles out of the corner. Paul aimlessly going after Woogieman BUT WOOGIEMAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Paul falls into the other corner as Woogieman takes a run, PAUL WITH A BACK ELBOW NAILING WOOGIEMAN RIGHT ON THE BRIDGE OF HIS NOSE! Woogieman grasping his nose right now PAUL PUSHING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND!

CRACK!

Rich Russillo: PAUL JOSHUA CRACKING WOOGIEMAN AGAINST THE NOSE AGAIN! Woogieman is bleeding profusely and I think I see a trend here Rich.

James Peters: Yeah it’s Bloodsport come early :blessed:

Rich Russillo: The Ref checking on Woogieman- BUT PAUL THROWING THE REFEREE ASIDE HE ISN’T DONE WITH WOOGIEMAN! Paul going to the top rope oh no I think he’s looking for that moonsault. PAUL LEAPS- WOOGIEMAN ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! Nobody home as Paul is clutching at his stomach, Woogieman coming into the ring again. Paul is stumbling up to his feet- SPEAR BY WOOGIEMAN! Paul collapses back to the ground as Woogieman is going for the pin!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: KICK OUT BY PAUL JOSHUA! Paul trying to crawl to a place of leverage but Woogieman is closing in on him, he’s bringing him up SPINEBUSTER- NO! PAUL WITH AN ELBOW IN MID AIR FORCING WOOGIEMAN TO BRING HIM DOWN! Both men falling over as Paul Joshua is just a bit faster getting up. Woogieman is trying to crawl away from Paul as quickly as he can but Paul has him in his sights. Paul bringing him up by the arm, he’s pulling him in SHORT ARM LARIAT! Woogieman’s head bouncing off the canvas as Paul gives an intimidating yell, Woogieman is only able to lift a hand in the air as Paul brings him up with it. SHORT ARM LARIAT- NO WOOGIEMAN DUCKS UNDER ANOTHER LARIAT, BACK SUPLEX BY WOOGIEMAN!

Rich Russillo: Paul Joshua isn’t feeling so good now as Woogieman is again clutching his nose as it bleeds even more down onto the canvas. But Woogieman isn’t giving up as he’s bringing Paul up to his feet. Woogieman irish whipping Paul Joshua into the corner, Woogieman running at Paul, CLOTHESLINE- NO PAUL DUCKS UNDER! HE THROWS WOOGIEMAN INTO THE CORNER, KNIFE EDGE CHOP! Woogieman staying put in the corner, EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BY WOOGIEMAN! This has turned into an intense back and forth now, FOREARM BY PAUL, UPPERCUT BY WOOGIEMAN! FOREARM, UPPERCUT, FOREARM, UPPERCUT- PAUL WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT OF WOOGIEMAN! Paul taking a run, HE MAULS WOOGIEMAN BRINGING HIM DOWN! Woogieman staggering into the corner as he isn’t fully taken down by Paul Joshua’s attack. Woogieman moving forward trying to attack Paul Joshua, BIG BOOT- NO WOOGIEMAN DUCKS UNDER HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, SPINEBUSTER!

James Peters: Woogieman moving to the top of Paul Joshua’s body as the crowd goes insane! He’s removing his elbow pad I think he might be going for his patented People’s Elbow! He’s running the ropes, he jumps over Paul… WAIT! PAUL KIPPING TO HIS FEET, JUMPING BIG BOOT STRAIGHT TO WOOGIEMAN! The crowd boos as Paul connects with Boothenasia! Woogieman isn’t staying down for long though as he’s bringing himself up wobbly. PAUL JOSHUA WITH THE BEAR HUG LOCKED IN- NO WOOGIEMAN HAS THE EYES, WOOGIEMAN IS RAKING AT PAUL’S EYES!

Ref: HEY THAT’S ILLEGAL CMON!

Woogieman: No it isn’t I went for the mouth.

Ref: THAT’S STILL ILLEGAL!

Woogieman: Whatever.

Rich Russillo: Woogieman lying out of a disqualification BUT PAUL IS WAITING RIGHT BEHIND HIM WHILE HE WAS ARGUING WITH THE REF! BOOTHENASIA- NO WOOGIEMAN DUCKING UNDER AND GOING FOR A CHOP BLOCK TO THE LEG OF PAUL JOSHUA FORCING HIM DOWN! WOOGIEMAN ROLLING HIM UP!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

James Peters: KICKOUT! Woogieman trying to play it smart but it’s just not enough to keep down Paul Joshua at the moment. Both men getting up at the same time, WOOGIEMAN LAUNCHING AT PAUL JOSHUA WITH A FOREARM! But Paul quickly grabbing Woogieman, BEAR HUG! Paul Joshua has January 1st locked in right now and Woogieman is in too much pain to do anything about it! Woogieman gaining more control as he’s trying to slam his fist into the back of Paul Joshua. What the hell is Woogieman doing, he’s grabbed the skull of Paul Joshua now! WOOGIEMAN STEERING PAUL AROUND, both men going back and forth. WOOGIEMAN PUSHING PAUL INTO THE CORNER! Paul finally lets go of the bear hug as Woogieman slowly backs out of the corner. Paul stumbling out grabbing at his head, BUT HE’S FALLEN RIGHT INTO, THE BOTTOM! Woogieman connects with his signature move.

Rich Russillo: I don’t think Woogieman is done as he’s moving up I think he’s gonna go for another attempt at the People’s Elbow. He rips off his last elbow pad and he’s off. He runs back and forth against the ropes he might actually do it, PEOPLE’S ELBOW- NO PAUL MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Both men are up, BOOTHENASIA! Paul out of nowhere knocking Woogieman straight down to the ground blood flying everywhere. Paul looking around at all the blood and I think a lightbulb is flickering in his mind as he’s walking to the corner. Oh no he’s grabbing the turnbuckle what is he doing now, HES RIPPING IT OFF!

James Peters: Paul Joshua planning to make this situation worse for the doctors as Woogieman is slowly bringing himself up to his feet, Paul looking to bring him to the corner. IRISH WHIP- NO WOOGIEMAN STAYS PUT, Woogieman turning the tides as he irish whips him into the opposite corner. Woogieman moving in, BUT PAUL GRABBING WOOGIEMAN AND THROWING HIM INTO THE CORNER, EUROPEAN UPPERCUT STUNNING WOOGIEMAN! Paul easily grabbing him now, IRISH WHIP INTO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE! Woogieman is down and out in the corner as Paul is grabbing him. PAUL SLAMMING WOOGIEMAN’S FACE RIGHT INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE- WOOGIEMAN GRABBING HIM BACK, HE SLAMS HIM BACK! Both men are now covered in blood now, Paul grabbing Woogieman but he isn’t throwing him. HES LIFTING HIM UP, SNAKE EYES ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!

Rich Russillo: Woogieman certainly feeling that as he collapses to the ground as Paul is now dragging him with no effort to the middle of the ring. Both men are not giving in but they seem to be very tired. Paul stomping Woogieman down for extra measure as he’s scaling the top rope now, MOONSAULT! Both men’s blood mixing together now that’s disgusting.

James Peters: I like it.

Rich Russillo: Whatever. Paul bringing him up, JANUARY 1ST! THE BEAR HUG IS LOCKED IN! There’s no need to check, Woogieman is already down and out it’s over.

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Headache” plays up again to massive boos as Paul Joshua keeps that bear hug locked in, the Ref is trying to convince him to let it go until finally he does and the Ref goes quickly to check on Woogieman)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by submission, PAUL…JOSHUA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: I don’t believe it, HOW DOES THIS LOSER manage to beat possibly the best person to step into an EAW ring.

Rich Russillo: *cough* Landerson *cough* I don’t know but it seems like the sudden quick agility of Paul Joshua got the best of Woogieman in this match, this is certainly match of the year, no match of the decade! Woogieman is always a sight to behold :wow: oh yeah and this dude too. This was a bloody brawl and if we’re seeing this much blood at a weekly show, imagine what we’ll see at Bloodsport :blessed:

(Paul Joshua celebrates his first victory in EAW as Voltage fades into a brief recap of Friday Night Dynasty.)

(A highlight video of Friday Night Dynasty plays. Universal Women’s Champion, Kassidy Heart, is seen addressing Serena Bennett and accepting a match for Operation Doomsday. Drake King is seen defeating TLA. La Ravage Corte is unmasked, revealing himself to be the legend that is Eric Havoc. Jack Ripley and Lethal Consequences are seen defeating Jake Smith and Impact. And finally, Drake King is seen costing Cage his match against Darkane :lupe:!!!)

( SCREEN BAR – “Earlier This Week” )

(Voltages fades back to Arii Moana Restaurant in Bora Bora. Charlie and Veena have moved on to dinner, and are eating their meals in what appears to be a peaceful and understanding silence. Veena has the asparagus risotto with arborio rice, Parmigiano Reggiano, and dehydrated porcini. Charlie has the surf and turf option which is prime Black Angus tenderloin, European lobster, extra virgin olive oil, mashed potatoes and beetroot reduction. It’s very fancy. Eventually the two push back their plates and resume their business conversation.)

Charlie Marr: Are we going to discuss the four people in question any further?

(Veena lets out a sigh.)

Veena Adams: I think it goes without saying the problems that Camille, her sister, Consuela, Raven Roberts, and Andrea Valentine present. Camille’s ridiculous PURE Championship reign has likely given her the Cameron Ella Ava mentality that she belongs in the ring with men, and shattering glass ceilings, and all that other bullshit. I don’t have time for that, and I damn sure don’t need that attitude to rub off on a third Ava, especially when that one comes with a little bit of power. How the fuck the shittiest one of the group managed to win the 24/7 Battle Royal and get that contract is beyond even my comprehension, but that’s a problem. That contract will allow Consuela to go for whatever championship her heart desires here in EAW, and that could very well end up being the EAW Championship, which is something that you need to be well aware of. Avas are greedy, and they feed off of one another, and Consuela can be influenced. That one is weak, and doesn’t have to confidence the others do, and I will be damned if being around Camille gives Consuela some weird and unnecessary self-esteem boost. As far as Camille goes, the ‘Red Queen’ needs to burn. She is brash, mouthy, and has no problem sticking her nose into business that doesn’t concern her. If nothing else, Pain for Pride will have lit a fire underneath her, and that’s not something we need going forward. She’s already a nightmare, and I don’t need her thinking she actually has a place on Voltage.

Veena Adams: As far as Andrea goes, she is fine whenever she stays in her lane and knows her role, but seeing her win the Clash of Champions match at the Draft Show against men who are far more superior than she is really made me weary. I don’t want Andrea thinking that matches like Clash of Champions are her specialty. She had no business winning that match, and I don’t know how the fuck I’m supposed to look at Terry and take him seriously as the Interwire Champion. In one night, that piece of trash Andrea destroyed any credibility Terry had, and it’s not like there was much there to begin with. I have no idea how the hell I’m supposed to market that fat fuck as a worthy Interwire Champion when he’s getting bodied by an Instagram model in Felix Hartley and pinned by someone he outweighs by nearly six hundred pounds. Since we’re forced to have a women’s division, Andrea needs to know that her place is strictly within the confines of that, and she never needs to look at branching outside of it. She is good at what she does, if you can call it wrestling, and I’m sure one day she can even win the Universal Women’s Championship. It’s not like it takes a lot of talent to hold that considering the gold digging cunt who’s got the championship now.

(Veena’s faces sours as she thinks of her Uncle Ryan’s brand new wife, Kassidy Heart.)

Veena Adams: Yikes. As far as the last one goes, Raven Roberts is trouble. I’ve had my run-ins with that slut in the past, and I know damn well she is going to do whatever she can to fuck things up on Voltage. Rex McAllister’s cum dumpster has that stupid Cash in the Vault briefcase and something tells me she’s not going to limit herself to just one championship to potentially cash in on. She is a greedy whore and will look for the best opportunity, and we need to make sure that doesn’t come at your expense. I hate Raven Roberts with every fibre of my being and I want her gone not just from Voltage, but from EAW as a whole. The way she carries herself makes me sick to my stomach and we both know she’s not going to be a good girl and just take her vanilla boyfriend’s dick in her mouth like a proper future wife should. She’s going to act up, and lash out, and try to show everyone that she’s world championship material despite getting embarrassed in her two previous matches for the Women’s World Championship. I think that with you as EAW Champion, and me fully in charge of Voltage, we can eliminate the unnecessary pieces we were forced to take on as a result of the draft and cancellation of Empire.

Charlie Marr: We both know I feel the same way about this that you do, and I never wanted any of those whores on my brand. They don’t belong in this business period, and I’m definitely up for destroying them.

(Veena beams, her blue eyes sparkling in delight.)

Veena Adams: Bloodsport is the beginning, Charlie. I look forward to working with you.

(Veena lifts her wine glass, and in turn, Charlie raises his whiskey on the rocks. They clink their glasses together and drink up, and then the scene fades to black.)

(Voltage returns to live action and the camera focuses in on Bella, who is standing in the middle of the ring.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE CO-COMMISSIONER OF SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE… ‘CAPTAIN CHARISMA’ MATT DANIELS!!!

(‘Self Help Tape’ by Moses Sumney begins to play and the crowd erupts as Matt Daniels walks out onto the stage. He smiles to the crowd and waves to the crowd, as he gets inside the ring and is handed Bella’s microphone.)

Matt Daniels: HELLO CHICAGO!!!!

(Matt gets an even louder pop this time, and he can’t help but smirk.)

Matt Daniels: Alright, so. I’m here to address some of the things Veena talked about last week, as well as confirm the matches she revealed to be true. Veena made a huge statement regarding our next event, Bloodsport, and what I have to say tonight is building on that topic. Like Veena announced last week, Malcolm Jones will be defending his EAW Championship against Charlie Marr, in an Electrified Steel Cage of Death match! Malcolm and Charlie are two outstanding competitors, and this is a match I know will not disappoint! These two are going to do whatever possible to win, and with that electrified steel cage around them, who knows what’s gonna happen? Pretty exciting right?

Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

Matt Daniels: BUT WAIT! THAT’S NOT ALL!! Another thing that Veena alluded to, that I am going to confirm now, is that every match at Bloodsport is going to have NO DISQUALIFICATIONS!

Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

James Peters: So I guess it’s official. Every match at Bloodsport is going to be no disqualifications at the very least!

Rich Russillo: Yeah, and these fans seem pretty happy to hear that!

(Matt Daniels looks around at the crowd, and lets them continue chanting “Yes!”. Once they finish, Matt raises the microphone near his face and begins to speak once more.)

Matt Daniels: Yep! No disqualifications, and it looks like you all like the sound of that! You all know what that means, right? Anything and everything is legal! Low blows, cheap shots, weapons, tables, everything is legal! Now, I know how you all feel about Veena, and I feel the same way, BUT. You have to admit, despite the feelings towards Veena, this is gonna make Bloodsport pretty interesting, won’t it? We’re going back to our roots with Bloodsport. After all, this company was forged from the ashes of extreme wrestling and every Elitist who was willing to put their respective body on the line just to win a match. :wow:

Matt Daniels: That’s not the only thing I came out for. There is still something huge I came out here to address, and that is what I’m calling an Ultimate Opportunity match! This match is going to blow your minds, and I’m sure this is a match that could steal the show, as well as advance the career of whoever wins it! So, enough with the suspense. You all wanna know what this match is?

(The crowd once again begins chanting “Yes!” Repeatedly, but don’t do it for long, quickly quieting down so Matt Daniels can speak.)

Matt Daniels: This ultimate opportunity will be in the form of.. A BARBED WIRE LADDER MATCH!

(The crowd explodes with the news, leaving Matt Daniels just smiling in the ring as the fans cheer on. They cheer for a while, but eventually they simmer down so Matt can continue speaking once again.)

Matt Daniels: Yes, you heard me correctly. A barbed wire ladder match! So, let me explain. This match is going to see a set number of competitors battle it out for the ultimate opportunity hanging above the ring. This opportunity will be in the form of two briefcases, each holding a prize with implications for a future show. Of course, to win this match you have to get up that ladder, and grab one of those two briefcases! This match is huge. These competitors get a chance to get an opportunity they might not get again. I’m sure you’re all going to love it, and I know I will too.

Matt Daniels: As far as the competitors go, I know you’re all eager to know who will be in this huge match at Bloodsport, but I can’t give away everything immediately. There’s no fun in that. So during the coming weeks, I will be revealing the names that you will see in the Ultimate Opportunity Barbed Wire Ladder Match! While I am not revealing any names now, I will say that the stars you will see are going to be future champions. The people in this match are going to be stars, but the stardom can come sooner for whoever wins this match, and trust me, you’re not gonna want to miss this!

James Peters: Wow, a barbed wire ladder match? That’s just insane!

Rich Russillo: This opportunity seems to be no joke. I’m sure it’s worth the pain if there’s not one but TWO different briefcases!

James Peters: You’re not wrong about that, and the fans seem to feel the same way!

(The crowd is cheering loudly, and they’re visibly excited at the huge announcement. Matt looks at the crowd once more, and begins to speak once again as he slowly exits the ring.)

Matt Daniels: So remember everyone. Malcolm Jones versus Charlie Marr in an Electrified Steel Cage of Death, every match will be at least no DQ, and there will be an Ultimate Opportunity Barbed Wire Ladder match! That’s all for now, but pay attention for the following weeks, you’re not gonna want to miss the people in this match! That’s all I have for you guys tonight, so see you all in the following weeks!

(With that said, ‘Self Help Tape’ begins playing once more, as Matt Daniels walks out of the ring, back behind the curtain with the fans cheering, excited about everything coming up at Bloodsport.)

(The camera fades from ringside and cuts to the back entrance of the building. A beautiful young woman who appears to be of Polynesian descent is seen timidly walking into the arena. She has an envelope in her hands and is pulling a small suitcase behind her, and somehow she has been given credentials to get inside the exclusive backstage area. Several EAW workers give her curious looks as she walks around, clearly confused as to where she needs to go. Finally, a female stagehand takes pity on the woman and approaches her.)

Stagehand: Hey there.

(The mystery woman flashes this other woman a grateful smile and pulls out her passport.)

Stagehand: Your name is Amura?

(The woman, named Amura, smiles and nods her head.)

Amura: Oui. I’m looking for someone. Can you help me?

(Amura speaks with a French accent, which doesn’t surprise the stagehand having seen the young woman’s passport. She is from the island of Bora Bora.)

Stagehand: I can try and help. I’m Nora by the way.

Amura: Nice to meet you, Nora. I am looking for a man called Korey Gaines. He is a professional wrestler?

(Amura phrases it like a question, because she still seems to be a little unsure that she’s in the right place.)

Nora: Korey Gaines is a professional wrestler, and he does work here. But I have to ask you, how did you get those credentials and how do you know Korey?

(Nora’s voice is suspicious and rightfully so, but Amura seems to take it all in stride.)

Amura: I work at the Four Seasons Resort in Bora Bora. I’m housecleaner for the overwater bungalows. I meet a woman earlier in the week named Veena Adams, who said she ran this company? I’m not really sure, but she told me to show you this selfie.

(Amura pulls out her phone and shows Nora her selfie with Veena. Nora can’t help but roll her eyes.)

Nora: Alright.

Amura: She pay for me to come here tonight and give Korey Gaines a message from her. *Amura flashes the sealed envelope that has Korey’s name written on it in Veena’s handwriting* Do you know where I can find him?

(Nora points down the hallway, towards catering, and Amura hurries off.)

(Korey Gaines is in catering, killing time before his match against Ms. Extreme and Jalyn Garcia. He’s checking social media on his phone and drinking a Red Bull. He looks up from his phone right as Amura shyly walks into the scene. She scans the room and finally her dark brown eyes settle on Korey.)

Amura: Are you Korey Gaines?

(She approaches the table, eyes hopeful, looking for reassurance that she is in the right place.)

Korey Gaines: I am. Are you a fan?

Amura: I don’t know you. I was sent to give you a message.

(Korey immediately looks suspicious, and even more so as Amura extends her hand to give him the envelope.)

Korey Gaines: Who sent you?

Amura: Veena Adams did. My name is Amura.

(Korey doesn’t say anything. He breaks the seal on the envelope and pulls out a letter, written on Four Seasons Bora Bora stationary. He begins to read out loud.)

Korey Gaines: Gaines. Don’t make the mistake of getting excited over this letter because trust me, I still want very little to do with you in all actuality. However, since I can’t be there in person tonight due to the fact I am having the most wonderful time here in Bora Bora, I thought I would officially inform you that at Bloodsport, you are getting a championship match. I watched the way you handled your business in the ring against Tyler Wolfe last week, and how you coaxed that stupid slag into trying something stupid that has ultimately ended up costing her. I said specifically that I want nothing to do with Empire trash on Voltage, and you indirectly had a huge hand in helping get rid of one of the biggest ring rats of them all. I have always despised self-righteous, faux feminist hypocrits like Tyler, and knowing she will no longer be a player on Voltage makes me smile just a little. There’s still too many cumbuckets on Voltage, but hey. At least we got rid of one of them. At Bloodsport, you will be facing Terry Chambers for the Interwire Championship as a reward, but I’m going to be nice and let that fat fuck pick the stipulation since he had to suffer a humiliating defeat at the ends of Andrea Valentine. Matty likes to say I’m not fair, but look at me. I’m totally being fair to Terry. It’s the least I can do, I guess, but yeah. Whatever. Enjoy.

(Korey isn’t sure exactly how to respond to Veena’s letter. He glances at the bottom of the page, and rolls his eyes.)

Korey Gaines: P.S. To show my gratitude towards you in helping rid EAW of Tyler Wolfe, I’m attaching a little Tahitian whore to this letter. She’s expressed a desire to stay in the States, so I’m sure you can help her in getting a green card and she can help you stay the fuck off social media. 😉 hhhaaaayyyy!!! Camille made you look like a bitch this week when she called you out on being thirsty. Tut tut.

(Korey shakes his head.)

Korey Gaines: God, Veena’s a bitch.

(Amura’s smile fades.)

Amura: Tahitian whore?! I want to be actress. Veena Adams say if I bring this letter to you, she would get me a part in a movie.

(Korey scoffs.)

Korey Gaines: She lied, obviously.

Amura: But I have no return ticket home and no money.

(Amura’s face crumbles and she buries her face in her hands, crying. Korey looks around awkwardly, unsure of what to do. He finally stands up, and pockets the letter in his hoodie, and leaves Amura crying in catering. Voltage fades to commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Comfort Zone fans, the best stand alone fans in the business tonight. When you live in 100 degree heat, and your air conditioner won’t keep up, Comfort Zone fans can help alleviate some of the heat as we approach the dog days of summer.)

(Voltage returns from break as ‘Mob Ties’ by Drake begins to play and the crowd immediately begins booing as Cepheus St. Claire makes his way down to the ring, with Lonnie Delmonty by his side, having a grin on his face.)

Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… Accompanied by Lonnie Delmonty.. Residing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada… Weighing in at 230 pounds… CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!!

James Peters: Cepheus St. Claire is an outstanding competitor. He’s been doing great since his debut, and put up a great fight against TLA on the draft show. Now he’s facing someone new to the Voltage brand.

Rich Russillo: You’re right, Cepheus is great, but don’t forget his manager. With Lonnie Delmonty by his side, Cepheus automatically has an advantage. The question is, will that be able to stop his opponent here tonight?

(‘Mixed Personalities’ by YNW Melly follows, and the boos don’t stop. Even so, Desmond Black walks down to the ring with a focused face, not paying attention to the crowd, only to Cepheus.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent… Residing in Calgary, Alberta Canada… Weighing in at 215 pounds… DESMOND BLACK!!

James Peters: Ladies and Gentlemen, Desmond Black is one of the former Showdown members that has been traded over to Voltage in the draft. This man has been pretty impressive since his debut, but can he beat Cepheus here tonight?

Rich Russillo: That’s a tough question. Desmond is a great competitor, but Cepheus might just be one of the fastest rising rookies I’ve seen here! We’re just gonna have to see how this one goes!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And this match is now underway! Cepheus St. Claire vs the “Devil’s Diamond”, Desmond Black! The two men are slowly circling the ring, and you can see the unease on Cepehus’ face, staring right into the eyes of Desmond! Despite that, Cepheus charges straight at Desmond, BUT HE’S CAUGHT WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, FOLLOWED BY A SUPERKICK AS CEPHEUS DROPPED TO A KNEE! DESMOND JUST TOOK CEPHEUS OUT IMMEDIATELY, AND HE’S BACKING UP INTO THE CORNER, IS HE GONNA PUT THIS ONE AWAY ALREADY? HE’S TELLING CEPHEUS TO GET UP, AND HE HAS THAT LOOK IN HIS EYE! KINGS COURT!

Rich Russillo: NO! CEPHEUS WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE OF DESMOND! CEPHEUS MANAGED TO COUNTER THAT SPEAR, AND IF HE HADN’T THAT WOULD’VE BEEN IT FOR HIM! CEPHEUS NOW THROWING DESMOND SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, AND THERE’S A ROLL UP BY THE TREACHEROUS ONE!

ONE!
TWO-

Rich Russillo: KICK OUT BY DESMOND, BUT CEPHEUS NOW WITH A GROUNDED HEADLOCK APPLIED!

James Peters: Cepheus is doing a good job of staying on top of Desmond! While Desmond may be newer than Cepheus, he’s still a clear threat, and you all just saw that when he nearly wiped Cepheus out mere seconds into the match! Desmond now is getting to a knee, and now he’s managing to get to both feet! Desmond now managing to power Cepheus into the ropes, causing Cepheus to let go of him!

Rich Russillo: Cepheus now off the ropes, RIGHT INTO A SPINNING HEEL KICK! Cepheus was just dropped by Desmond, and the Treacherous One now is crawling over to the corner, clearly in disbelief of what just happened! Desmond walking over to Cepheus though, and now he’s stomping away at him in the corner! Desmond is stomping a hole into Cepheus, and the referee finally has to split the two apart!

James Peters: Cepheus slowly using the turnbuckles to get to his feet, and now Desmond is charging in- BUT CEPHEUS MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX BY ST. CLAIRE! Cepheus now dragging Desmond back to his feet, as he puts him in a front headlock! Cepheus now attempting to lift him up, possibly for a Brainbuster, but Desmond manages to keep himself grounded, AND THERE’S A SUPLEX BY DESMOND INSTEAD! DESMOND NOW WITH A COVER ON CEPHEUS!

ONE!
TWO!-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY ST. CLAIRE! Desmond now dragging Cepheus to his feet, and he follows it up with an Irish whip into the corner! Desmond now charging in, AND HE HITS A CLOTHESLINE IN THE CORNER! Desmond now, CONNECTING WITH A DDT! CEPHEUS IS IN TROUBLE BUT LOOK! LONNIE DELMONTY JUST HELD THE LEG OF DESMOND, AND NOW THE REFEREE IS WARNING LONNIE TO BACK AWAY FROM HIM, BUT HE MAY HAVE JUST BOUGHT CEPHEUS SOME TIME TO RECOVER! DESMOND TURNING AROUND- RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! CEPHEUS NOW WITH THE COVER ON DESMOND!

ONE!
TWO!!
T-

James Peters: DESMOND KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN! Cepheus now dragging Desmond to his feet, and he irish whips him into the corner, before charging in, AND THERE’S A KNEE TO THE FACE, BUT IF YOU’VE SEEN CEPHEUS’ MATCHES, YOU’LL KNOW THAT’S NOT ALL! CEPHEUS WITH AN IRISH WHIP TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND THERE’S A SECOND KNEE! DESMOND BEING THROWN INTO THE THIRD CORNER, AND THERE’S ANOTHER KNEE! DESMOND INTO THE FOURTH, AND CEPHEUS CHARGES IN TO COMPLETE ‘THE FOUR CORNERS OF DISDAIN’!

Rich Russillo: BUT DESMOND MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, AND IRISH WHIPS CEPHEUS INTO THE ROPES! PARADOX! THE SPINNING SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS! DESMOND NOW WITH THE COVER, TO PUT CEPHEUS AWAY!

ONE!
TWO!!
THREE!!!

Rich Russillo: NO! LONNIE PUT CEPHEUS’ FOOT ON THE ROPES BUT THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT! ALL HE SAW WAS CEPHEUS’ FOOT THERE, AND THE MATCH IS STILL ON!

James Peters: Desmond can’t believe his eyes and I can’t say I blame him! Not only did Cepheus survive because of the ropes, but his manager just bailed him out of what could’ve been a huge loss! Desmond beginning to stomp away at Cepheus, but Lonnie is quick to help Cepheus out of the ring to recover!

Rich Russillo: I don’t think Desmond is going to allow that though! Desmond running the ropes, TOPE CON HILO, TAKING OUT BOTH LONNIE AND CEPHEUS! DESMOND THROWING CEPHEUS BACK INTO THE RING, BUT ST.CLAIRE IS TRYING TO ESCAPE THIS ASSAULT! CEPHEUS IS CRAWLING TOWARDS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING BUT DESMOND IS QUICK TO PUT A STOP TO HIM AS HE STOMPS ONTO HIS BACK!

James Peters: Desmond now dragging Cepheus up as he goes onto the second rope. It looks like he’s trying to set up for the desmobomb, BUT CEPHEUS IS ABLE TO PULL DESMOND OFF THE ROPE BY HIS LEG! THAT MAY HAVE BEEN AN ACT OF DESPERATION, BUT EITHER WAY CEPHEUS ONCE AGAIN SAVED HIS CHANCES IN THIS MATCH!

Rich Russillo: CEPHEUS NOW PICKING DESMOND UP, AND THERE’S A SIT OUT POWERBOMB! CEPHEUS WITH THE COVER, AND THIS MAY BE ENOUGH TO FINISH THIS MATCH AND PUT DESMOND AWAY!

ONE!
TWO!!
THRE-

Rich Russillo: NO! IT WASN’T ENOUGH! DESMOND ONCE AGAIN MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, SAVING THE MATCH FOR HIMSELF! CEPHEUS CAN’T BELIEVE IT, BUT NOW HE’S BACKING UP INTO THE CORNER, AND IT CLEARLY LOOKS LIKE HE’S MOCKING DESMOND!

James Peters: Cepheus urging for Desmond to get to his feet, much like Desmond normally does himself! Desmond is slowly using the ropes to pull himself up! What’s Cepheus looking to do? Cepheus charging in at Desmond, SHADY ENDING!

Rich Russillo: NO! DESMOND PUSHES CEPHEUS AWAY BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT WITH IT, AND THERE’S ANOTHER SPINNING HEEL KICK! CEPHEUS IS DOWN, AND DESMOND IS IN THE CORNER ONCE AGAIN! IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S TAKE TWO AS HE URGES FOR CEPHEUS TO GET TO HIS FEET, COULD THIS BE IT!? KING’S COURT-

James Peters: NO! CEPHEUS JUST GOT OUT OF THE WAY, AND DESMOND ALMOST FLEW INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BUT HE MANAGED TO CATCH HIMSELF- BUT CEPHEUS TURNS HIM AROUND! SHADY ENDING! THAT’S IT! THE JUMPING CUTTER CONNECTS, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!

ONE!
TWO!!
THREE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!!!!

James Peters: Great win by Cepheus here tonight, although it is arguable that he only won because of Monty. Monty did bail him out a couple of times in that match.

Rich Russillo: Really? Because the first time all he did was buy Cepheus a few seconds of time. The second time sure, but Cepheus is a great competitor. There’s no doubt he would have kicked out.

James Peters: Well either way, Cepheus St. Claire is your winner here tonight.

(‘Mob ties’ once again begins to play as Cepheus St. Claire has his hand raised by the referee, before rolling outside of the ring to join Lonnie Delmonty in exiting, happy about the victory. Meanwhile, Desmond Black is resting in the corner, angered about the loss.)

(The camera takes a final shot of Cepheus St. Claire celebrating his second victory in a row on Voltage, and then fades out.)

(The scene reopens to a darkened corner of the arena. It’s unclear exactly where we are right now, but Jack Diddly, the friend of Paul Joshua, is seen standing in front of a ladder. He’s looking up at the top of it and that’s when we see that Paul is standing on the very top of said ladder. He’s not showered or changed from his match earlier. In fact, he’s still covered in the blood of the Big Boogie Bhampion. Paul has a thoughtful look on his face, but Jack looks a little exasperated.)

Jack Diddly: Will you please get down from there?

(The maniacal Paul Joshua looks down at Jack Diddly and shakes his head.)

Paul Joshua: NO! I’m standing at the top of this ladder to prepare myself for Bloodsport and the ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ match! Whatever that opportunity ends up being… it will be MINE! I didn’t come here to fuck around, Jack! I am a three-time world champion and the grandson of a fucking legend! I AM UNDEFEATED! This fucking roster is going to respect me, and when I snatch one of those briefcases down at Bloodsport, I am going to be on my way to the top of Voltage where I belong!

(Jack takes a deep breath.)

Jack Diddly: While I have no doubt that you’ll win one of those briefcases, Captain Charisma hasn’t officially announced any competitors for it yet. So perhaps we need to make sure that you’re in the match first, before we get our hopes up…

(Paul looks down and stares blankly at Jack.)

Paul Joshua: Captain Charisma doesn’t have to make an official announcement for me to know that I’m going to be in that match. My record speaks for itself and I know you’re not standing down there doubting that.

Jack Diddly: :lupe: I just want to err on the side of caution, that’s all! This a highly competitive company…

Paul Joshua (interrupting): And I’m undefeated! No one on this roster is capable of pinning me or making me submit! And none of ‘em will be able to cause the kind of destruction that I can with a ladder! A BARBED WIRE LADDER AT THAT! This is the beginning of my rise back to the world championship! The people in charge around here wanted to play games with me. They insulted me by placing me in a match against The Woogieman! I took him to task earlier tonight! Woogie’s blood is on my hands right now, and there is no way… NO WAY… that I can be denied! They have brought the beast out in me and I don’t think they truly know what they’ve done in the process. I put all these pussies on high alert tonight when I ripped the Bhamp apart! No one is safe from Big Paulie Joshua. It’s my time now, whether they hand it to me or I have to force it from their clinched up, rigormortised, cold dead hands. I will straight up murder everyone in that match come Bloodsport and there’s not a damn thing anyone can do about that!

Jack Diddly: Alright. But seriously, can you please climb down from the ladder now?

(A sinister little smile spreads across Paul’s face.)

Paul Joshua: You want me to climb down from the ladder?

Jack Diddly: Yes. You’ve made your point.

(Paul is silent for a few seconds and then, much to Jack’s horror, LEAPS from the ladder! Paul Joshua with a moonsault from the very top of the ladder and he hits the concrete floor with a thud! Jack is quick to rush to his side.)

Jack Diddly: Jesus fuck! What the fu-

(Paul’s big hand shoots out, gripping Jack around the neck, and he gets back to his feet, completely unaffected by the moonsault off the ladder. Jack is clawing at Paul’s hand, trying to break his grip, but Paul slams him into the wall and slams the fist of his free hand into the wall right beside Jack’s head!)

Paul Joshua: I have proven myself as the Big Dog of this business on more than one occasion and come Bloodsport, I’m going to get the chance to do it once again.

(Paul lets go of his friend, and Jack slumps to the floor coughing and trying to get air back into his lungs after being choked. Paul looks at his busted open knuckles and smiles as the blood trickles down his arm and drips to the floor.)

Paul Joshua: I live for this shit.

(Paul exits, leaving Jack on the floor, and Voltage fades into a preview for the Showdown exclusive event, Midsummer Massacre.)

(Voltage fades back into live action and cuts to the ring where Bella is standing by!)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentleman the following contest is scheduled for..

Crowd: ONE FALL!

(“The Hounds of Anubis” by The Word Alive hits and Jesse Barlow storms out from the back at a quickened business-like pace, ignoring the jeers from the crowd before sliding under the bottom rope.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first from Hoboken, New Jersey standing in at 6’1” and weighing in at 210 pounds… he is… THE VIRTUOUS…. JEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEE BARRRRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Rusillo: I’m interested to see what Jesse has to offer here. A promising young prospect with a troubled past isn’t anything new per se but I think this kid has the tools to really flourish on a new show!

James Peters: I guess so, but this man is having some sort of identity crisis. That troubled past of his needs to be put on the backburner for now if he wants to come away with the victory. Or should I say, avoid being whacked as some of those Joisey mobsters like to call it.

Rich Russillo: Oh please. Since when do you know anything about the mob life?

James Peters: I watched The Sopranos on A&E like once.

Bella Braxton (as the music hits): Introducing his opponent debuting from Boca Raton, Florida standing at 5’7” and weighing in at 128 pounds, she is BETTTTTTTTTTTTTHAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNY BLUUUUUU–

(A voice suddenly interrupts Bella Braxton who is visibly perplexed.)

????: NO NO NO NO NO

Rich Rusillo: Where is that angelic voice coming from?

James Peters: COULD IT BE?

(Dr. Bethany Blue emerges from the back for the first time, a mic in hand, dressed in a white Doctor’s coat, her flawless ring gear, and a stethoscope encompassing her neck as she shakes her head back and forth before storming into the ring and shooting Bella Braxton an ugly look.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: That’s DOCTOR Bethany Blue. Thank you very much. Such lack of concentration is quite disappointing considering it’s from somebody who has only one job to do. I think I have JUST the fix for that! One moment please.

(Dr. Bethany Blue reaches into her white Doctor’s coat, removing out bandages, band-aids, tongue dispensers and suddenly slaps Bella Braxton right across the face.)

James Peters: HEY! THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR!

Rich Russillo: I’m sold! That was brilliant! HEY DR. BETHANY BLUE I DON’T FEEL SO GOOD ALL OF A SUDD–

James Peters: Pipe down James! She’s got a match you dumbass!

Rich Russillo: BUT..

(Dr. Bethany Blue gazes sternly at Bella Braxton who appears visibly shook.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Get it right next time darling. Now ring that damn bell! The doctor is in and I have to aid this Mr. Barlow even by means of lobotomization.

(Jesse Barlow crouches in the corner unamused while Dr. Bethany Blue, gently removes her Doctor’s coat and stethoscope.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: This should be an interesting clash of styles James and there might be a feeling out process to beg–

James Peters: A VICIOUS BACKHAND ACROSS THE FACE OF JESSE BARLOW FROM DR. BETHANY BLUE! THAT’LL WAKE YOU UP IN A HEARTBEAT! She doesn’t look too impressed by what Barlow has to offer. Jesse holds his jaw and looks at her with a half crescent grin.

Dr. Bethany Blue (off mic): What splendid reaction time! The curvature of your jaw in relation to the imprint should produce immaculate results!

James Peters: What did she say?

Rich Russillo: I have no idea! Jesse quickly replies with a sudden eye gouge, what is this, the three stooges?! He follows this with a lightning-quick clothesline, dropping Dr. Bethany Blue! He bends forward and motions Dr. Bethany Blue to bring it and look at the scowl on her face!

James Peters: If looks could kill.

Rich Russillo: She could look at me any day, she’s beautiful!

James Peters: Who in their right mind would want to do that? Dr. Bethany Blue smiles suddenly, playing off the fact that Jesse might have her a bit rattled! Dr. Bethany Blue suddenly churns towards Jesse but he ducks a clothesline attempt and spins her arm around only to meet a stiff European forearm! She drills him with another and then slices his chest with a knife edged chop! She backs Jesse into the ropes but Jesse quickly headbutts her across the bridge of the nose! OUCH!

Rich Russillo: SUCH A WAY TO TREAT A DOCTOR! He yanks her down with a snapmare and fluidly connects with a dropkick to the back of her head! A nice combination move, I just hope she’s okay!

James Peters: She’s a doctor, she’ll be fine! She rolls to the corner and attempts to bring herself up via the ropes but Jesse hooks her from behind! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX…

Rich Russillo: HOLY CRAP! SHE LANDED ON HER FEET AND NOW LOOK! SHE’S MOTIONING FOR JESSE BARLOW TO BRING IT WITH A RATHER SEDUCTIVE FINGER WAG.

James Peters: Nothing seductive about it! Jesse obliges and storms after her! She drives a knee into his midsection and quickly jolts his jaw upward with a stinging knee lift! She then drops him onto his back with a beautiful hip toss! Dr. Bethany Blue quickly snaps repeated sharp kicks to the small of Jesse’s back as he grimaces in pain. She then brings Jesse back up into a side headlock, trying to squeeze his head like a grape! Jesse pushes her forward but she still has the lock cinched in! Impressive strength from the Doctor!

Rich Russillo: You can see Jesse’s face turning tomato red, the blood is definitely rushing to his head! He attempts to lift Dr. Bethany Blue in the air backward and succeeds but she swings forward and plants Jesse with a modified bulldog! She could have had a crash landing if she didn’t have the wherewithal to connect with that bulldog! She sprints towards the opposite ropes in one motion and bounces off of them.. BUT JESSE CATCHES HER AND SPINS HER LIKE A BATON… TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER CONNECTS!

James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue arches upwards, visibly struggling to hide the pain. That was as fluid as it gets! Jesse mounts Dr. Bethany Blue and starts pummeling her with right and left hooks! He dismounts and pulls Dr. Bethany Blue to her feet and whips her into the ropes, back comes The Doctor with a beautiful crossbody!

Rich Russillo: NOT SO FAST! HE CATCHES HER IN MID-AIR AND TRANSITIONS HER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!! DR. BETHANY BLUE IS KICKING HER LEGS IN ORDER TO GET OUT OF THE LESS THAN FAVORABLE PREDICAMENT SHE’S IN RIGHT NOW AND SHE DOES! SHE LANDS ON HER FEET BEHIND BARLOW! JESSE TRIES TO TURN AROUND BUT DR. BETHANY BLUE SLAMS A FOREARM INTO THE MIDDLE OF HIS BACK! SHE THEN HOOKS THE HEAD OF BARLOW!!!!!

James Peters: GRADE C2! GRADE C2! REVERSE…

Rich Russillo: BY JESSE! HE TWISTS HIS BODY AROUND INTO A NORTHERN LIGHTS POSITION BUT DR. BETHANY BLUE IS DRIVING STINGING ELBOWS INTO THE BACK OF JESSE’S HEAD! THAT WARDS HIM OFF FOR NOW AS HE TURNS AROUND…

James Peters: T.J.D!!!! A HELLACIOUS SUPERKICK!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: IS CAUGHT BY JESSE!!!!!! HE THROWS HER LEG DOWN AND BOOTS HER IN THE STOMACH!!!!! DDT!!!! BAM!

James Peters: HE QUICKLY CRAWLS ON TOP OF DR. BETHANY BLUE AND HOOKS HER LEG!!!!!! THE REF SLIDES DOWN AND INTO POSITION!!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: SHE KICKS OUT! THERE’S A GLOSSY LOOK IN HER EYES, THAT DDT REALLY DID A NUMBER ON HER! Jesse reaches down and grabs…

James Peters: DROP TOE HOLD!!!!! SHE QUICKLY CEASES THE ARM OF JESSE BARLOW AND FLIPS HERSELF FORWARD, LAYING ON TOP OF JESSE’S BACK WITH HIS ARM STILL IN HER GRASP!!!! THE DISLOCATION!!!!!!! JESSE BARLOW IS IN DEEP TROUBLE! LOOK AT THE SUDDEN AGONY PAINT ACROSS HIS FACE! SHE’S YANKING BACK AS FAR AS SHE CAN POSSIBLY GO WITH JESSE’S ARM!!!! THE REF IS IN PERFECT POSITION AND IT MIGHT BE ONLY A MATTER OF TIME NOW! JESSE IS USING HIS LEG TO CRAWL TOWARDS THE ROPES BUT WITH EVERY SLIGHT MOVEMENT THE PAIN JUST GETS WORSE RICH!

Rich Russillo: Yeah but this is his only choice at this point! He’s closer to the ropes but Dr. Bethany Blue has hellfire in her eyes and how gratifying it would be if she got her first victory in her debut via submission?!

Ref (off mic): What do you say, Jesse?

Jesse Barlow: JASDKLFJUGHHHHHRRRR

James Peters: Did you make that out?

Rich Russillo: Yeah he said JASDKLFJUGHHHHHRRRR which is Australian for I’M IN PAIN!!!!

James Peters: Thanks, Rich. Meanwhile, Jesse is only inches from the ropes and….

Rich Rusillo: HE SLINGS HIS LEG OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE MUCH TO DR. BETHANY BLUE’S DISMAY! Dr. Bethany Blue looks flabbergasted!

James Peters: Indeed but she can’t let Jesse’s resilience throw her off of her game! She needs to keep her nose to the grindstone!

Rich Russillo: Her nose is perfectly fine. What she can’t do, is let up.

James Peters: That’s exactly what I said! You know what… WOW JESSE JUST JACKED THE DOCTOR’S JAW WITH A VICIOUS UPPERCUT! THAT CAUGHT HER BY SURPRISE! THANKFULLY FOR JESSE, IT WAS HIS GOOD ARM AND NOT THE LIMP ONE DANGLING IN PLACE COURTESY OF THE DISLOCATION! BUT BACK COMES DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! SHE QUICKLY KICKS THE KNEE OF BARLOW! HE DROPS DOWN WHILE SHE HOOKS HIS NECK AND HIS LEG!

Rich Russillo: FISHERMAN SUPLE… WAIT NO! JESSE IS BLOCKING IT WITH STRIKES TO THE RIBS THAT BACKS DR. BETHANY BLUE OFF! HE CHARGES TOWARDS DR. BETHANY BLUE! KISSSSSSS OF DEAAAAAAAAAATH!!!! RUNNING DOUBLE LEG DROPKI—

James Peters: IS COUNTERED! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST CAUGHT BOTH OF HIS LEGS AND I THINK SHE’S LOOKING FOR… YES! AN ELEVATED BOSTON CRAB THAT SHE CALLS ‘FRACTURED’, ALL SHE HAS TO DO IS TWIST HIM OVER BUT JESSE IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! HE SPINS HER OVER WITH HIS LEGS! A BEAUTIFUL COUNTER, BUT SHE’S RIGHT BACK ON THE ATTACK! SUPERKICK! TJD!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: IS DUCKED! JESSE SWINGS AROUND AND HOOKS HER WAIST! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOM! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST LANDED RIGHT ON HER HEAD!!! HE SPRINTS FORWARD TO COVER!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

James Peters: AND A HALF! DR. BETHANY BLUE POWERS OUT, SOMEHOW! LOOK AT JESSE, STALKING HER! HE’S READY TO STRIKE! SHE SLOWLY REACHES HER FEET!!! KISSSSSSSSSSSSS OF DEAAAAAAAAAAATHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: SUPERKICK!!!!!!!! TJD OUTTA NOWHERE AND THIS ONE CONNECTED SQUARE ON THE JAW! Dr. Bethany Blue quickly stacks the legs of Barlow for the pin!

James Peters: IT’S… NOT OVER?! BARLOW SHOOTS HIS LEGS UP SENDING DR. BETHANY BLUE TO THE CORNER! JESSE HOLDS HIS JAW WHILE DR. BETHANY BLUE HAS ASCENDED THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! LOOK OUT!!!!!!!!! MISSSSSSLEEEEEEE DROPKICKKKKKKKK!!!

Rich Russillo: OH MYLANTA!!!!!!! REPENT! REPENT! JESSE BARLOW JUST TAGGED DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH A NASTY STIFF PUNCH TO THE FACE!!! SHE DROPS DOWN TO HER KNEES AND COLLAPSES! JESSE ISN’T DONE YET! HE MEASURES DR. BETHANY BLUE! SHE’S ON ALL FOURS NOW!!! HE BARRELS TOWARDS HER!!!!!! CURBBBBBBBBBB STOMPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP— HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: WHAT THE HELL WHAT A COUNTER! MID-AIR SITOUT POWERBOMB!!!!!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE USED HER OWN HEAD TO LAUNCH JESSE BARLOW’S FOOT SKYWARD AND THEN IMMEDIATELY CAUGHT HIM AND SPIKED HIM DOWN!!! THE PIN!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS IT!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Rich Russillo: SOMEBODY CALL THE DOCTOR! SHE’S DONE IT!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: NO SHE HASN’T!!!!!!!!!! BARLOW JUST BARELY KICKS OUT!!!!!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE IS IN A CATATONIC STATE! FOR THE FIRST TIME SHE’S RELATIVELY EMOTIONLESS! SHE RISES UP TO HER FEET AND COCKS HER HEAD TOWARDS THE FALLEN CARCASS OF JESSE BARLOW! WHAT’S SHE DOING?!

Rich Russillo: SHE’S REMOVING HER GLOVES! SHE MEANS BUSINESS NOW!

Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): TIME TO CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT MR. BARLOW!

James Peters: But Jesse is motionless! He must have kicked out on instinct alone! She pulls him up anywa–

Rich Russillo: POSSUM! JESSE WAS PLAYING POSSUM!!! HE DROPS DOWN WITH DR. BETHANY BLUE AND HE’S GOT HER IN THE FINAL VERDICT; HELL’S GATE!!! SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! SHE’S WAVING HER ARM AROUND WILDLY, LOOKING FOR SOMEWAY TO ESCAPE THE TRIANGLE CHOKE! BUT SHE CAN’T!!! SHE’S FADING! SHE’S FADING! IT’S OV-

James Peters: WAIT A SECOND!!! SHE’S GOT A SYRINGE!!! THE REFEREE DOESN’T SEE IT FROM THE ANGLE THAT HE’S AT! AND OH MY… SHE JUST UGH… SHE JAMMED IT INTO THE RIBS OF BARLOW! HE’S YELPING IN PAIN!!! COME ON REF!

Rich Russillo: HEY I’M NO ADVOCATE FOR POINTY OBJECTS BUT I THINK SHE HAD A LITTLE LADY LUCK ON HER SIDE, SHE MUST HAVE HAD IT TUCKED AWAY FOR A RAINY DAY! SHE GRABS AHOLD OF JESSE’S HEAD AND DRIVE’S HIM DOWN WITH THE GRADE C2!!!!!!!!! THE PIN!!!!!!!

James Peters: NOT!

ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

James Peters: LIKE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: THIS!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Rich Russillo: NO WAY!

James Peters: BARLOW. KICKS. OUT!!!!!

Dr. Bethany Blue: You’ve gotta be FUCKING kidding me!

Rich Russillo: THE MOUTH ON HER!

James Peters: THAT’S NOT VERY LADYLIKE!

(The referee spots the syringe and picks it up, noticing the blood trickling down from Jesse’s ribs and piecing together the puzzle.)

Referee (Off mic): What the hell is this? Where did you get this? HM?!

Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): Now why would I ever use a filthy syringe like that? Eeyuck, disgusting. I’ll have you know that I only use the fine—

Rich Russillo: NEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVERRRRRMOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE! WHAT A KNEE!!!!!! OUTTA NOWHERE! THE DOCTOR HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!

James Peters: That’s Elvis, Rich..

Rich Russillo: Semantics.. Look! He’s going for the pin!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: FOOT ON THE ROPE!!!!! AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!!!! JESSE BARLOW LOOKS SKYWARD, HE’S IN DISBELIEF AND I THINK MOST OF THE FANS ARE HERE TOO. HE CAUGHT HER FLUSH ON THE JAW!

Rich Russillo: I must say her ring awareness was key here if she wasn’t near the ropes I don’t think she would have beaten the count James.

James Peters: Excellent point. You gotta tip your cap to the debuting Dr. Bethany Blue. She’s put on quite the clinic thus far, although she looks completely out of it at the moment! Jesse brings her up OH WHAT BLATANT RAKE OF THE EYES BY DR. BETHANY BLUE, RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE REFEREE NO LESS, SHE’S LUCKY SHE DIDN’T GET DISQUALIFIED! SHE BOLTS TOWARDS JESSE BUT HE COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP! HE QUICKLY HEADS UP THE TURNBUCKLE AND PERCHES HIMSELF UP ON THE TOP! COULD IT BE?! IF HE HITS THIS IT’S OVER!

Rich Russillo: FEARRRRR OF GODDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!

James Peters: MISSES ITS MARK! MY GOD WHAT A CRASH LANDING FOR JESSE BARLOW! DR. BETHANY BLUE ROLLED OUT JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME! HE LANDED HARD ON HIS BACK RICH, THAT WAS HIGH RISK, HIGH REWARD AND HE PAID DEARLY FOR IT! NOW IT’S UP TO DR. BETHANY BLUE TO SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY!

Rich Russillo: SHE GRABS THE LEGS OF JESSE PERHAPS LOOKING FOR THAT BOSTON CRAB SUBMISSION MANEUVER AGAIN BUT JESSE IS SOMEHOW FENDING HER OFF WITH STRAIGHT KICKS TO THE KNEE! HE ROLLS BACK ONTO HIS FEET AND SPRINTS TOWARDS HER! OH JESUS! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST MAY HAVE BLEW HIS KNEE OUT! A CHOP BLOCK FROM THE FRONT! JESSE IS ROLLING AROUND AS IF HE’S ON FIRE! THAT’S A DANGEROUS, DANGEROUS MOVE!

James Peters: SHE QUICKLY GRABS THE LEG OF JESSE BARLOW AND DROPS DOWN! KNEEBAR! KNEEBAR! OH MY GOD, SHE’S GONNA TEAR HIS KNEE APART! DAMNIT! SHE’S LIKE A SHARK THAT SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER! JESSE IS SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS! SHE’S GOT HIM HOOKED! HE’S GOTTA THINK ABOUT TAPPING OUT HERE! FOR HIS CAREER’S SAKE BUT HE WON’T, HE’S BITING HIS OWN FIST! THE MAN WOULD RATHER DIE THAN TAP OUT!

Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL?! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST LET GO?! WHY?!

James Peters: Either she’s crazy or she feels that he’s not gonna tap! Or both! She clutches his jaw and brings him up with an angry scowl on her face! She rears back AND…. OH NO! CODE BLUE! CODE BLU–.

Rich Russillo: NEVERMOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! HE DRILLS HER RIGHT IN THE CHOPS WITH THAT DEVASTATING V-TRIGGER FOR THE SECOND TIME!!!!!!! THEY BOTH GO DOWN! I BELIEVE HE CONNECTED WITH HIS BAD KNEE AND NOW HE’S CLUTCHING IT AND SLAMMING THE MAT IN FRUSTRATION!!!!!!!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE IS OUT COLD!!!!!! BUT HE CAN’T COVER, HE’S IN TOO MUCH AGONY!!!!! THE FANS HAVE COME UNGLUED!!!!

James Peters: You can tell these two want this match so bad and while I admire their passion, you gotta wonder how much has been taken out of them? Jesse is clinging to one corner while Dr. Bethany Blue has come to and crawled towards the opposite corner! Something’s gotta give here! Dr. Bethany Blue knows that his leg is well, on its last leg, but I still question as to why she released the submission hold in the first place as she bull rushes out of the corner straight for Jesse Barlow!

Rich Russillo: REEEEEEPENNNNNNNNNNNNT!!!!!!!! JESSE JUST NAILED HER WITH A BRUTAL SCREAMING PUNCH TO THE FACE!!!!!! SHE DROPS IN PLACE!!! HE HOPS ON ONE LEG AND DIVES ON TOP OF HER!!!!!!!!!! THE COVER!!!!!!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

……

James Peters: NO WAY!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: SHE KICKED OUT!!!!!!! WHAT?!! HOW IN THE HELL?!

James Peters: Jesse shakes his head and gingerly climbs the top turnbuckle with a bad knee and all! This doesn’t look good, not at all, he can barely stand!

Rich Russillo: Meanwhile, the ref is holding Jesse off, Dr. Bethany Blue might be seriously hurt from that strike she took, even though she managed to kick out, she’s saying something to the referee, I can’t quite make it out, but he may have to call this match off folks.

(The crowd suddenly starts to stand and cheer as a figure blazes through the sea of humanity.)

James Peters: LOOK RICH! IT’S CONSUELA ROSE AVA! SHE HOPS OVER THE BARRICADE AND NO! GOD NO! SHE JUST CRACKED THE BLACK ROSE SCEPTER OVER JESSE’S INJURED KNEE! PAYBACK IS A BITCH! SHE DUCKS DOWN BELOW THE LINE OF THE APRON BEFORE THE REF CAN SEE AND SUDDENLY DR. BETHANY BLUE COMES TO LIFE. HOW CONVENIENT! HE’S DANGLING OFF OF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS SHE SWOOPS IN UNDER HIM! SHE HOISTS HIM ON HER SHOULDERS AND LOOK OUT BELOW!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: WHIPPPPPPPPPLASSSSSSSSSSSHHHH!!!!!!! SIT OUT POWERBOMB!!!!!!!!!!! THE COVER!!!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi begins to blast across the PA System and the referee raises the hand of Dr. Bethany Blue. The good doctor smiles brightly, having won her first match in EAW, caring very little that she got an assist from Consuela Rose Ava. Meanwhile, Consuela has taken the microphone from Bella.)

Consuela Rose Ava: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… DOCTOR BETHANY BLUE!!!!!

(The sound of Consuela’s voice startles the referee, who whips around and looks at Consuela. He sees the black rose scepter in Consuela’s hands and sees Jesse, who’s somewhat recovered, clutching his knee in pain. He puts two and two together, and shoots Consuela a disappointed look as ‘The Perfectionist’ climbs into the ring. The good doctor eyes Consuela up, licking her lips, before dropping down and rolling out of the ring. She begins to make her way up the ramp, her arms raised in victory, as her theme music dies down.)

(Consuela points her scepter at the referee and orders him out of the ring. Once she’s left alone with Jesse, Consuela bends down so that they are on somewhat the same level.)

Consuela Rose Ava: An eye for an eye, Jesse.

(She straightens back up and twirls the scepter. The crowd is chanting Consuela’s name at this point and she smirks, clearing enjoying the moment.)

Consuela Rose Ava: Last week, you made it your goal to come out here and drag my name through the mud, and get involved in my match against Raven. You went above and beyond to send a message to me and let me know that you’re not happy with the results of the 24/7 Battle Royal. Well guess what? I’m not the same Consuela Rose Ava that was underutilized and underappreciated, and not taken seriously as a competitor on Empire. I’m not the same woman who walked away temporarily because she couldn’t handle a little bit of adversity, and I’m not the same woman who hangs out in catering after losing her championship.

Crowd: CON-SUE-LA! CON-SUE-LA! CON-SUE-LA! CON-SUE-LA! CON-SUE-LA! CON-SUE-LA!

Consuela Rose Ava: I’m not going to take a backseat and let people like you, Jesse Barlow, run all over me. This season, I’m taking the bull by the horns and charting my own course, and I will be damned if someone like you tries to ruin things for me. I’m not going to be pushed around, taken advantage of, and I’m definitely not going to take things like what you did last week lying down. I can only assume you did what you did last week because you wanted my attention, and to send me a message. Well guess what? You sent your message and got my attention, and now I’m challenging you to a match at Bloodsport.

Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

Consuela Rose Ava: You so badly want to prove that you deserved to win the Battle Royal more than me, and maybe you think luck played a part in my victory… we’ll here’s your chance to prove just that. You and me, one-on-one at Bloodsport.

(Consuela thinks for a moment.)

Consuela Rose Ava: IN A FANS BRING THE WEAPONS MATCH!

(She slams the microphone down as the crowd absolutely explodes over the idea of this match. An angry Jesse Barlow snatches it up, while he continues to hold his knee.)

Jesse Barlow: You’re on Cuntsuela.

(“We Appreciate Power” by Grimes begins to play over the PA system, and Consuela exits the ring. She has a smile on her face, as she raises her hands in the air, and the fans shower her with cheers. Consuela and Jesse lock eyes, as Jesse drags himself up to his feet and limps over to the ropes.)

Consuela Rose Ava (Off Mic): Do not fuck with Consuela Rose Ava.

(Jesse spits in Consuela’s direction and shakes his head in disgust. The camera catches a final look at the two rivals before cutting to a commercial.)

(Commercial break for Salonpas. The pain relieving patch last for up to 8 hours and gives you temporary relief of minor aches and pains, such as but not limited too a stiff neck, sore shoulders, backaches, and joint pain. Salonpas, available at your nearest CVS!)

(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the backstage area. Sofia Clarke is once again seen. She still looks as flawless as she did earlier in the evening. She smiles into the camera.)

Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guests at this time… Mrs. Cash in the Vault, Raven Roberts, and the two-time world champion, Rex McAllister!)

(Ravex step into the scene, on either side of Sofia, and flash smiles at one another. Both are dressed in street clothes, and Raven has her briefcase in hand, although it’s dented now thanks to the way Jesse Barlow used it as a weapon on Consuela Rose Ava last week.)

Raven Roberts: Also known as Fire and Ice… don’t forget that.

(Raven’s voice is light, and bordering on teasing, and Rex looks at her, smiling softly. It’s easy to see the love between these two, as well as the mutual respect they have for one another.)

Sofia Clarke: Fire and Ice, of course. You two asked for this time tonight because it’s my understanding you both want to issue a challenge for Bloodsport. Is that correct?

Rex McAllister: Absolutely, Sofia. Neither one of us wants to sit on the sidelines as the first Voltage free-per-view of Season 13 takes place, and as great as Matt’s ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ match sounds, both of us have something else in mind.

Raven Roberts: Just to keep it completely honest with you, Rex and I took a good look at the roster and there was one match both of us wanted more than any other. We wanted to take on the team of Noah Reigner and Tyler Wolfe at Bloodsport, but thanks to Tyler’s injury that match is now out of the question. Fire and Ice will make their season debut as a tag team at some point, but for now Rex and I are both going to explore other options. For me, it was easy to decide who I want to face.

(Raven looks down at her briefcase and grins.)

Raven Roberts: At some point this season, I will become a world champion but until then I want to make sure I push myself and test myself against anyone and everyone. This person is coming off a record breaking championship reign, that will likely never be duplicated, and after losing their championship at Pain for Pride, I know they’ll be looking for redemption, which means they will give me the fight I’m craving. The best part out about EAW dissolving Empire is the fact it opens the door to dream matches, matches that I never thought I could have because of the brand I was competing on. That being said, I want to extend an open invitation to the former Answers World Champion, Theron Nikolas, to come face me at Bloodsport.

(A confident smile spreads across Raven’s perfectly made up face as she looks into the camera.)

Raven Roberts: Theron, you have yet to show your face on Voltage, and that’s your business to be honest, but the only option you have right now is coming back to work and getting yourself back into the ring. Nothing in this world lasts forever, and your championship reign went on long enough. I want an answer from you next week, and I hope you man up and give it to me.

Sofia Clarke: Wow! Theron Nikolas versus Raven Roberts is a hell of a match. Are you sure, Raven?

Raven Roberts: I wouldn’t be standing here calling Theron out if I wasn’t confident I could defeat him at Bloodsport. I don’t doubt my abilities whatsoever, and regardless of what championship I decide to go for, I’m going to be facing world caliber athletes like Theron across the board. We can say what we wanna say about the man who once referred to himself as a God Emperor, but he is one of the best wrestlers in the world. I don’t have to respect who he is as a person, to respect his ability inside the ring.

Sofia Clarke: That’s fair enough. Wow. I’m shook. *Sofia shakes her head* What about you, Rex? Who do you see yourself facing at Bloodsport?

(A sly smile spreads across Rex’s face.)

Rex McAllister: My challenge is a little more open than Raven’s, because there’s no one specific person in mind. I know that in order to climb my way back up the ladder and get myself back into the world championship picture, I’m going to need to beat everyone on this roster.

Sofia Clarke: So when you say open challenge…

Rex McAllister: I mean exactly that, Sofia. This Elitist wants to see who steps up to the plate to challenge a two-time world champion and back-to-back Pain for Pride headliner. I’m confident that Season 13 is going to be the best one ever for me, and I’ll just go ahead and put it out there right now because I want everything on the table. I fully plan on making my way back to Pain for Pride and into the main event, and finally getting my moment. I bust my ass every day to be the best possible Elitist I can be and last season, I was the standard bearer. I was Mr. Consistency, and the person everyone could count on to deliver in every single situation imaginable. This season won’t be any different, and my personal road back to Pain for Pride starts right now.

???: I guess that means mine does as well.

(Everyone’s attention is diverted as Ms. Extreme walks into the picture. She’s dressed in her gear, because her match is coming up, but she has a fierce look of determination on her face. Raven moves beside Rex, leaving Ms. Extreme standing by herself on Sofia’s left.)

Ms. Extreme: My Pain for Pride moment was taken from me too, Rex. I had a record setting PURE Championship reign and expected nothing less from myself than victory against Mark Michaels. Unfortunately that didn’t work out for me, but that man had to nearly kill me in order to take that belt from me, and I don’t plan on wasting any time in getting myself right back into championship conversations. If you want a challenge for Bloodsport, then look no further than the Red Queen who is standing right in front of you. I will happily face you on August 10th, Rex, and there’s no doubt that it will be the greatest match. Bloodsport is going to be contested under conditions that I thrive in, and last season you more than proved that you are much more than a pure mat technician. If you’re truly serious about this challenge that you just threw out, consider it accepted, and I will see you in the ring at Bloodsport.

Rex McAllister: I think we both know that I wouldn’t say anything I wasn’t one hundred percent serious about. If you want to test yourself against this Elitist, Ms. Extreme, then by all means. Lets fight. Since you were the one who stepped up to the plate, I’ll be the one who lets you set the stipulation. Something tells me that you’re not going to be satisfied with just a ‘No Disqualification’ stipulation.

Ms. Extreme: :mjgrin: What ever gave you that impress?

Rex McAllister: :mjgrin:

Sofia Clarke: So is this official? Ms. Extreme versus Rex McAllister at Bloodsport?!

(Ms. Extreme and Rex lock eyes with one another and both nod their heads. Rex extends his hand and Ms. Extreme actually gives it a brief shake. She takes her leave to get ready for her match, and Fire and Ice also exit, having said their peace and made their challenges.)

Sofia Clarke: Bloodsport is shaping up to be an incredible show already. Rex McAllister versus Ms. Extreme and potentially Raven Roberts versus Theron Nikolas!!! :wow:!!!!!

(Sofia simply shakes her head as Voltage fades into a brief recap for Showdown.)

(A highlight video of Saturday Night Showdown is played. Amber Keys’ latest run-in with former BFF Jenny Punk is show, leading to Amber attacking Felix Hartley later in the show. The Mechanical Animals are seen defeating Harlow Reichert and Thadd Blazevich to earn themselves a shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships. And the main event saw the team of Chris Elite and Mr. DEDEDE defeat The Visual Prophet and Ahren Fournier!)

(Voltage fades back and into the ring, where Bella is standing by.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! INTRODUCING FIRST!!

( “Gangsta” by New Years Day hits to a resounding uproar from the crowd in attendance. Ms. Extreme emerges from the gorilla position and makes her appearance on the ramp. Standing on the stage, she confidently looks towards the crowd before walking down the ramp )

Bella Braxton: From Calabasas, California, weighing in at 135 pounds… MMMMMMMSSSSSSSSS. EXXXXXXTTTTTREEEEEMMMMMMEEE!!!

James Peters: Last week, Ms. Extreme left her tag team partner, Charlie Marr mid-match which led her to taking another loss since losing her PURE Championship at Pain For Pride 12. However, I don’t think Extreme gives a fuck about success and that is a mindset that will be daunting for her opponents. Tonight is a big opportunity for Extreme to get back on track.

( While Extreme takes off her entrance gear, ‘What Happens If I Can’t Check My Myspace When We Get There?’ by Attack, Attack! follows along with a monstrous pop. Jayln Garcia makes his appearance on the stage, laser-focused while he makes his way towards the ring )

Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENTS! FIRST! From Sacramento, California, weighing in at 150 pounds.. JAAAAAYYYLLNNNNNNNNN GARRRRRRCIIIIIIIIAAAAAA!!!

Rich Russillo: Garcia has been a wildcard since his in-ring debut here in EAW. In his last match, he competed against individuals who had a huge advantage over him, which was overall size. Garcia was able to walk out of that match as the victor, but he was physically torn apart during the match. Garcia has tape around his injured area and that will certainly be a main target for Extreme and Gaines.

( ‘Thunderstruck’ by ACDC plays as the crowd responds with a huge ovation from the crowd. Korey Gaines steps out the stage, momentarily stops to pose, and then begins to make his way down the ramp )

Bella Braxton: From Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, weighing in at 170 pounds… KOORRRREEYYYY GAIIIIINNNNNESSS!!!

James Peters: Speaking of injuries, Korey Gaines was involved in a match against Tyler Wolfe. He dodged an incoming Wolfe, causing Wolfe to twist her ankle, which ended the match. For many competitors, this event would get in the head as Gaines caused the injury. Hopefully, this injury hasn’t been a burden for Gaines’ focus on this match.

( DING! DING! DING! )

James Peters: Gaines, Garcia, and Extreme in their respective corners as the match gets underway here tonight. Ever since the announcement of this match, everyone has been anticipating for what these three talented individuals will bring to this match.

Rich Russillo: The aggressiveness of Ms. Extreme, agility of Jalyn Garcia, and athletic talent of Korey Gaines goes heads to heads here in this triple threat as all three elitists begin to move on their feet. They slowly raise their arms to signal for a triple test of strength. They lock hands as they both overpower the smaller Garcia!

AND SOMEHOW GARCIA WAS ABLE TO FLIP GAINES OVER AND CONNECT WITH THE INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER WHILE HE WAS FALLING OVER!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( ‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day hits to a deafening reaction. Ms. Extreme slowly gets up to her feet to get her hand raised by the referee )

James Peters: It seems like Garcia is gonna have to take a visit to the doctor’s office after the pain he endured in this triple threat. Ms. Extreme took full advantage of Garcia’s previous rib injury and it got her the win.

Rich Russillo: I think Jalyn will stay the hell away from the doctor, to be honest, but I will happily go in his place! Anyways! As this match was taking off, Garcia was on the verge of connecting with the same frog splash that got him the win last week, but out of thin air, Gaines shows up and takes Garcia for a ride in a Super Spanish Fly onto the apron. Garcia went back first onto the hardest part of the ring and as you said, Ms. Extreme took full advantage of the outcome of that sequence.

James Peters: We all thought Garcia was going to continue his winning ways when he was soaring off the top rope for the frog splash, but Ms. Extreme was one step ahead and got her knees up, causing Garcia to go crashing into the knees. After that, Extreme followed up with her signature diving double foot stomp into the heart of Garcia, which got her the win. Here tonight, Extreme emerges victorious!

(Ms. Extreme celebrates her victory, as Gaines and Garcia shake their heads, disappointed with the outcome. Voltage fades into a preview for Bloodsport.)

(EAW Presents: A Voltage Exclusive Event! Bloodsport, live from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts! See EAW World Champion, Malcolm Jones, defend his championship against Charlie Marr, in an Electrified Steel Cage of Death Match! See Bloodsport on August 10th, 2019, live only on Free-Per-View!)

(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ring. “For Free” by Drake is blasting throughout the arena. A makeshift talk show set has been set up and it’s a pretty fancy set, identical to the set up a few weeks ago for the inaugural episode of Talib Bari’s show, ‘Cloth Talk’. The ring has once again been covered with a black velvet carpet that’s been trimmed in gold. All of the decor for the set of ‘Cloth Talk’ continues to be in black and gold. Talib’s gold and black velvet trimmed throne sits in the middle of the ring, but instead of fancy chairs for his guests, he has a black velvet sofa this time. Gold pillows are thrown on the sofa, making it extra nice, and Talib is standing beside the black monitor, sitting on top of the snazzy little gold pedestal, that has ‘Cloth Talk’ flashing across it.)

Talib Bari: :blessed: THEY RENEWED US FOR A SECOND EPISODE!

(Talib is talking into his own customized gold microphone and he is grinning from ear to ear.)

Talib Bari: i just wanna take a minute and thank each and everyone of y’all who helped make the first episode of ‘Cloth Talk’ a success, know what I’m sayin’? I love you guys, and you are the reason I do what I do. I love this business, and that’s why I give it so much heart and so much passion, and that’s why each and every time we do ‘Cloth Talk’ Imma bring that energy, and keep it real with y’all. At least one of my guests tonight match me when it comes to that, and just speaking from a purely personal level and from my heart, seeing this man with the EAW World Championship just touches me. It cuts me so deep, in the best possible way, because he is the exact representation we need! He speaks the truth, and works harder than anyone else in the back, and he is the very definition of hustlin’ and never letting up, not even when you achieve your dreams. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION… MALCOLM JONES!!!

(“Pray For Em” by Meek Mill begins to blast across the PA system, and the fans inside the AllState Arena rise to their feet. As Malcolm Jones steps onto the stage, looking handsome in street clothes with his championship around his waist, the sold out crowd greets him with a mostly positive reaction. MJ doesn’t seem bothered and makes his way to the ring, climbing inside, and greeting Talib with a bro hug and handshake.)

Talib Bari: Dude, you a special type of cloth alert on another level. Congratulations on defending your EAW Championship back at Pain for Pride and makin’ all of us proud.

(Malcolm has been given his own microphone. It’s not a gold microphone because that’s reserved Talib only :wow:.)

Malcolm Jones: Big fucking whoop. As if there was ever any doubt that I wouldn’t emerge victorious in what was no doubt another low point main event for the Layla Lockharts of the world. Malcolm Jones versus Chris Elite can hopefully be put to rest now because I’m sick beating his little bitch ass.

Talib Bari: Well my guy, you two finally find yourselves on separate brands now, and you’re back home on Sunday nights.

Malcolm Jones: It never really mattered to me where I ended up because the competition is all the same to me. Piss poor mother fuckers who want to run their mouths, but when they finally get their name next to mine on the card, they wanna back track. They can’t handle the smoke, and I got smoke for all these bitches on Voltage, and everyone who else who wants to get it. Time and time again, I have put the hard hat on and gone to work, and made everything and everyone I have touched relevant in some kind of way. I fixed the prestige of the Interwire Championship that Ahren and a washed-up geriatric version of HBB shit on, and then got stuck trying to make the people forget another awful Ahren Fournier title reign. I am the marquee name in this company, and proof that the cream of the crop always rises to the top. I don’t let anything set me back, and I keep on pushing. I refuse to ever let myself do anything other than progress, and that’s why come Bloodsport, I’m going to whip the ass of Charlie Marr, and make what’s left of him do his best Daryl Kinkade impersonation and press that razorblade right to his wrist.

Talib Bari :damn:

Crowd: :lupe:

Talib Bari: So a Steel Cage of Death match, the fuck is that?

(Malcolm rolls his eyes.)

Malcolm Jones: Shiid. Some sadomasochistic wet dream of a match designed by a dick starved blonde with a BBC fetish who isn’t getting any gratification now that her cuck got shipped to Saturday Night Showdown. The same Visual Faggot who’s getting bodied by the man I just destroyed back at Pain for Pride, thus proving to everyone that he was never anything worth a damn to begin with, but I digress. I don’t give a damn what kind of match I’m in, there’s no way someone like Charlie Marr is ever going to be able to beat me. Just like I’ll never lay down for a bitch inside this ring, I’ll never lay down for a fruitcake like Charlie. On his best day, he can’t fuck with me. Going for cheap ass heat with his shitty, outdated rap references, talking about basketball like he even knows a fuckin’ thing about the sport. Go watch a soccer match you bearded bitch and drink a cup of tea, or whatever you weirdo Brits do. While you out there in Bora Bora, feastin’ on Viz’s sloppy ass seconds, we about to bring your bitch out here, and bet she’s gunna be begging for my dick in her mouth before we done here tonight.

Talib Bari: :mjlit: So yo, lets just go ahead and bring out my second guest tonight… Jordie Ripley!!!!

(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta hits the PA system, and the crowd erupts in jeers as Jordie Ripley makes her way onto the stage. The petite blonde bombshell is dressed in a pair of high-waisted black and white plaid shorts, a black lace bralette style top, and black and white converse sneakers. She has a microphone in her hands.)

Jordie Ripley: There’s literally no way I’m getting any closer to that ring because I don’t trust you, Malcum, as far as I could throw you. Some of the weird shit you say makes you sound as rapey as Korey Gaines on the EAW social stream, and I’m not about to become a #MeToo victim. You are such a piece of shit, always carrying yourself like some larger than life being, acting like your shit doesn’t stink when the stench of everything you stand for just completely reeks. You hate dickeating bozos, but honestly, Malcum. Who’s a bigger dickeater than you? There’s nothing original or unique about you. All you do is grab a microphone and vomit up garbage, talking shit about people and twisting it, making it sound uglier than it needs to be. There have been tons of people who have done that before you, and I’m sure there will be lots to do that after you. You aren’t as good as you say you are because if you were, then you never would have fucking lost to Cody Marshall.

Malcolm Jones: Let me stop you right there, because you seem to have gotten something twisted. I get you’re not used to speaking to a superior, but that match you’re referring to with Cody Marshall ended with me getting pinned thanks to outside interference. You dense bitch, go back and watch it on the EAW network, and see how Impact crawled his way out of Sienna Jade’s snatch long enough to try and send me some type of message. Then go and watch how I schooled his ass when he got inside the ring with me a few weeks later. The last thing you need to do is bring your ass out here, talking shit, and trying to do some kind of impersonation of a female Elitist. I think I made myself perfectly clear when it comes to how I feel when bitches talk out of turn. Especially a bitch like you, when all you do is sit on your knees all day, tongue out, begging for Charlie Marr to slap you in the face with his penis. If you even try and find a way to get involved in our match at Bloodsport, I’ll show the world what an actual impersonation of Ike Turner looks like and beat your fucking ass worse than Cha-

Talib Bari: FUCK!

Rich Russillo: :damn: I THOUGHT CHARLIE MARR WAS IN BORA BORA!!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE MARR IS IN THE RING AND HE IS BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF MALCOLM JONES RIGHT NOW AFTER ATTACKING HIM FROM BEHIND WITH A CHAIR! TALIB BARI HAS FLED FROM THE RING AND CHARLIE IS BEING RELENTLESS WITH THOSE CHAIR SHOTS RIGHT NOW! HE IS SLAMMING THAT CHAIR OVER MALCOLM’S BACK REPEATEDLY!!!

Rich Russillo: CHARLIE GRABS MALCOLM AND HOOKS HIM FOR THE QUEEN IS DEAD! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT PLANTS THE CHAMP INTO THE MAT! CHARLIE SNATCHES THE CLOTH TALK MONITOR UP AND HE SLAMS IT DOWN ON THE BACK OF MALCOLM’S HEAD!!!!

(The crowd is ripping into Charlie right now as he stands over the fallen body of the EAW Champion. The broken glass from the monitor litters the ring, and Malcolm is bleeding from the back of the head. A maniacal look crosses Charlie’s face as his theme music starts to blast across the arena’s speakers. Jordie rushes down the ramp and slides into the ring, and leaping into the arms of her man, wrapping her legs around his waist and kisses him on the cheek. Charlie smirks at her and the two share a real kiss as Voltage fades to break.)

(Commercial break for Doritos. IDGAF what kind.)

(Camera pans to the sold out Allstate arena as the fans are awaiting the next matchup)

(“Natural” By Imagine Dragons plays throughout the speakers of the arena as Terry Chambers proudly steps his way through the curtain with his Interwire Championship draped across his shoulder)

Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers is making his Season 13 debut on Voltage here tonight, James, and I can’t wait to see what he brings to the table against Noah Reigner!

James Peters: Terry Chambers finally achieved his dream at Pain for Pride by capturing a championship, and now he looks to back up that victory by knocking off the former World Heavyweight Champion.

(“DON’T STOP” By Innerpartysystem begins to blast throughout the speakers of the arena as Noah Reigner begins to make his entrance through the curtain and down the ramp)

Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent, From Seattle, Washington! Weighing in at 184 Pounds!! “The Assault Rifle” NOOAAAAAAHHHHHHH REIGGGNERRRRRRRR…..!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: And here comes the former champ, also making his Season 13 in-ring debut tonight. Noah let the entire EAW Universe know last week that he plans on achieving the triple crown this season, and if he’s going to do that, he’s going to need that Interwire Championship Terry wears.

James Peters: This match is going to be interesting, that’s for sure. I can’t wait to see how it plays out.

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: And there’s the bell as we have our main event underway! Terry, the current Interwire Champion has a weight advantage over Noah Reigner but that man is a former World Heavyweight Champion! Both men meet in the middle for a clash and test of strength as we start with the collar and elbow tie up! Both men fighting for positioning! Terry pushing Noah back using his strength advantage! And he backs Noah Reigner into the corner! The referee quickly getting involved asking for a clean break of the action! And he gets that clean break!

Rich Russillo: Terry backing up, as Noah comes out of the corner, both men still feeling each other out here in this contest! They clash again for another lock up! This time Terry quickly grabs a hold of the arm of Noah and begins applying an armbar! Terry working over the shoulder of Noah Reigner! Noah brought down to his knees off of this arm wrench by Terry! Terry applying the pressure! But Noah, begins rising up to his feet! AND QUICKLY PULLS HIS ARM OUT OF THE GRASP OF TERRY! And he hooks him by the head and snapmares him down to the canvas! And Noah quickly grasp his head and applies a chin lock with his knee in the spine of Terry!

James Peters: Terry reaching out! But Noah pulling back on his chin! Applying tons of added pressure with his knee in the spine of Terry! Terry though trying to do his absolute best to rise up to his feet. He begins to turn to shift his weight to get up! He begins rising! Noah still with the headlock applied, Terry though begins driving his elbow into the mid-section of Noah! Noah still holding on as Terry once again delivers an elbow to the body of Noah! Noah breaks the hold as he holds his mid-section! Terry WITH AN OPEN HANDED CHOP TO THE CHEST OF NOAH! Noah holding his chest as Terry comes forward with a forearm smash right to his face! And he comes back again with another open handed chop to the chest!

Rich Russillo: Terry now grabbing the arm of Noah and sends him into the ropes for a irish whip! The momentum brings Noah coming back as Terry swings for a clothesline! Noah manages to avoid the incoming clothesline! AND HE DELIVERS AN INSIDE LEG KICK! And follows it up with a shoot kick to the leg of Terry! And begins delivering repeated shoot kicks! OVER! AND OVER! Terry pushes Noah away from him as Noah runs at him! RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! Terry still standing on his feet! Noah backing up, AND RUNS FOR ANOTHER FOREARM SMASH!! AND IT CONNECTS AND KNOCKS TERRY OUT OF THE RING! Terry lands on his feet though!

James Peters: Terry shaking the cobwebs out of his head, Noah on the outside looking on! HE RUNS!!! DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES!! SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES CONNECTING INTO TERRY!!! Noah running back inside the ring as Terry begins getting himself up to his feet. Noah! RUNNING OFF THE ROPES AGAIN GAINING MORE MOMENTUM!!! AND HE RUNS FOR ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE!!!
