(Lars is seen walking backstage, he takes a turn as he stops in front of the waiting Matt Daniels.)
Lars: You called?
Matt Daniels: Yes, thanks for actually coming to meet up with me. I was afraid you’d blow it off. I just wanted to ease tensions before things got crazy here between you and Noah, ya know?
(Lars has a dumbfounded look as he ponders for a moment, before beginning to speak again.)
Lars: ….You know what? You have a point. The investment must be protected am I right?
Matt Daniels: Lars you know it’s not like th-
Lars: Honestly Matt, I have no hard feelings. I have no issues with Noah Reigner anymore because at the end of the day, this is simply not a fight worth fighting. It’s water under the bridge on my behalf. I know you’re probably expecting me to retaliate in a violent manner after last week’s attack on me but I honestly have nothing against Noah. No hate in my heart. He did what he had to do in order to avenge the attack on his broad, and that was that, completely understandable to be honest. We can both move on with our careers now.
Matt Daniels: Are.. are you serious right now?
(Lars smiles and pats Matt’s shoulder)
Lars: As serious as can be boss. In fact if I happen to run into him by any chance I can assure you there will not be any violence whatsoever, I’ll do whatever’s in my power to ease tensions and bury the hatchet. Nice talk.
(Lars winks at Matt Daniels and walks off, leaving Matt to stand there staring at him with an unsure expression as the camera fades elsewhere)
(A recap of last week’s Voltage plays highlighting Daryl Kinkade winning the #1 Contenders Match for the National Elite Championship after Noah Reigner attacked Lars, Rex McAllister successfully defeating Lethal Consequences, Chris Elite defeating Prince of Phenomenal before ending with the two men standing face to face with Rex and Daryl.)
(Voltage intro video plays featuring the song “Machine Gun” by Chase & Status, and we open up to the 02 Arena in London, England with MASSIVE gold and white pyro firing off from the stage, the titantron, the turnbuckles, and an incredible spectacle of lights prompting the capacity crowd to give every ounce of energy behind their applause.)
Kawajai: WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE!!!!! We’re on a tape delay here as we are here from London, therefore the show will not be broadcasted live tonight. However, the action is no different as we have an amazing show lined up for you guys!
Nick Angel: Indeed my friend, tonight we have a star studded main event as our National Elite and World Heavyweight Champions team up with one another to take on the number one contenders for their championships in Rex McAllister and Daryl Kinkade! We also have a battle of two men who I think are the absolute future in this business and can very well be a Pain for Pride main event at some point down the line! That’s how big this is to me! Xander Payne takes on Lars Grier in what I am sure will be the first of many battles in their career!
Kawajai: You just may be right, but in the meantime let’s get this show on the road!
(“Blackout” by Company Flow hits to a huge reaction of cheers as Lethal Consequences makes his way through the curtain accompanied by Andy Dominguez. Both men have on suits, Andy has on a full dress shirt and tie underneath while LC has a “décalage” t-shirt underneath his suit jacket. They make their way up the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome….. THEEEEEE ENTERPRISEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
Kawajai: Lethal Consequences has made his presence felt since returning to EAW as a surprise draft pick for Voltage. He’s walked around with a poise and swagger that I haven’t seen from him in over six years and this has landed him into becoming one of the hottest acts in the whole company right now. It’s almost as if the setbacks he’s faced over the years has molded him into an even more powerful and dangerous entity than he’s ever been before.
Nick Angel: That’s a pretty safe assumption Kawa, this is definitely not the Lethal Consequences of 2017, this is a determined, well calculated, and prepared LC who will stop at nothing to get what he feels he’s owed in this business. I was tipped off last week about The Enterprise making a major announcement tonight and perhaps that’s what brings them out here right now, lets see what they have to say!
(The Enterprise stand in the ring with mics as they begin to talk)
Lethal Consequences: As a man with a lot of power and stature in this company, I feel it is my responsibility to make sure that this company is left in the right hands when it comes to the talent of the future. Too many times have Andy and I sat here and watched the years go by as slapnut after slapnut got propped up as the future, only for them to falter under the lights. I’ve witnessed men walk into this company and have a nice year under their belt and suddenly get thrusted into Pain for Pride main events, just for them to fizzle out months later.
(LC stares a hole through Kawajai as he’s saying this.)
Lethal Consequences: I was doing some thinking and some soul searching, and I came to the conclusion alongside my partner Andy here that, well… basically the piece of shit management I’ve dealt with over the years was not the sole factor in what had constantly driven me away from EAW. I also believe the fact that the talent on this roster was so bland and boring and cookie cutter and uninspiring is that also drove me out. I couldn’t imagine sitting there and wasting my time fraternizing with the vast majority of these people who walk in and out of this company. Could you imagine a bunch of Rex McAllisters just running rampant blinding us with their mediocrity and the people just eat it up because they don’t know any better?
Andy: Don’t scare me like that! It’s bad enough we got Daryl and Charlie following in his footsteps.
Lethal Consequences: Or even worse…. A bunch of Devan Dubians!
Lethal Consequences: I know right? But thankfully we won’t have to worry about that because the future is in great hands as long as The Enterprise is around. I will make sure to mold this company in the vision that it was intended to become. I’ve been given my position by the original source of power in EAW, therefore the natural order of this company flows through me. Therefore every decision I will make going forward will be for the betterment of this company and how it should have been a long time ago.
Andy: And as CFO, I’m all about the money and making a profit. And FACTS show that ever since The Enterprise has stepped foot on Voltage this brand has become the most profitable brand in all of EAW! You want to talk about Empires little bidding war? The offers people are making for Voltage would make that look like kiddie business in comparison, and it’s all thanks to us!
Lethal Consequences: And lets not even talk about how the ratings aren’t even close. We’re blowing these idiots out of the water because we know what it takes to make EAW must-see-TV and we know where the talent truly is. Which brings me back to my original point. Talent, you see, the talent is what keep this company revolving and evolving, every now and then you’ll get a transcendent star who changes the very culture of this company and the company molds themselves after that very person, making them the face of it. And I think we’ve found the face Andy.
Andy: Oh we certainly have, this is no Johnny Nova, a man who’s just going to fizzle out once we’re done holding his hand. This is no fluke, it’s a sure thing! This is a self made man, a business man in his own right, and a surefire star. Unfortunately this many was in EAW before and his time was cut short, but I had my people contact him and offer him a new contract and a second chance to prove himself to be what I know he can be…. So without further ado….
(“I Came To Play” by Downstait hits as Jackson Blayde makes his way out in a suit and a determined look on his face. He marches down to the ring as he meets LC and Andy with handshakes and grabs a microphone.)
Blayde: Thank you for the opportunity guys. I promise you I won’t let this go to waste.
Lethal Consequences: Oh we know. We know you’re a surefire star who has all of the tools to become big time here, and we want to help you reach your destiny. As a member of The Enterprise, you are entitled to everything that we are, the private company jets, the big contracts, the endorsements, the company stock, you name it you got it. As long as you perform in that ring and prove yourself, the world is yours.
Blayde: I can assure you that I’m going to prove myself and then some. This opportunity for redemption, it’s not something I was seeking out for myself, I was content in the fact that my time in EAW was simply not what I hoped it would be. But then my hope was restored. I got a phone call from a higher up who saw in me what I saw in me, a man who knows where the money is and who can truly be the face of this company. And then that’s when I thought to myself… “maybe this company is worth giving my valuable time to after all”. I realize that you two men aren’t like the rest of these corrupt pieces of shits in the suits who make things worse and think they’re doing what’s best for business. You truly have EAW’s best interest in mind, because Jackson Blayde is EAW’s best interest.
Lethal Consequences: I really like this guy Andy!
Andy: Get a good look at this man ladies and gentlemen, because you’re looking at the future face of this company.
Blayde: With all due respect sir, allow me to correct that…. my time starts now, therefore you’re looking at the CURRENT face of this company. I’m not looking back.
Lethal Consequences: That’s the spirit! The Enterprise is only getting stronger, and with Blayde on our side it’s not even fair at this point.
Blayde: I hope you guys are ready for what’s coming. Because we aren’t letting up any time soon.
(“Blackout” picks back up as The Enterprise pose and taunt in the ring)
Kawajai: And there you have it! The newest member of The Enterprise, the returning Jackson Blayde! It’s almost as if he fits like a glove.
Nick Angel: You’re right Kawa, it’s one of those situations where there’s a perfect combination that you never even realized would make one. I certainly look forward to what these men have in store for EAW, I just hope it’s for the greater good like they say it is..
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
( ‘6:24’ by Danger plays throughout the arena via speakers as James Ranger makes his way to the ring )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…….. FROM LONDON, ENGLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 243 POUNDS……. HE IS THE BLACK MAMBA….. JAMMMMMMMESS RAAAAGEERRRRR!!!
Kawajai: Last week, this man was involved in a fatal four way that would determine the next Number One Contender for the National Elite Championship. However, Ranger was unsuccessful as with the help of Noah Reigner, Daryl Kinkade was the one who had his arm raised in victory.
Nick Angel: Kawajai, Ranger failed on an opportunity, but that was in the past, he has this match ahead of him to prove that he should be the number one contender for the National Elite Championship.
( Ranger walks up the stairs and walks through the ropes in the ring as ‘War Zone’ by World War Me blasts through the speakers and Alex Bowden comes out to a loud ovation )
Kawajai: Alex Bowden was another man who was on a receiving end of a loss of Voltage’s newest asset, Jacob Moore. Like you’ve said Angel, this match is proving grounds to both men and Bowden could use this proving ground to prove that this is still his “Golden Era”.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: This match is underway as both men circle around the ring, staring each other down before Bowden initiates a tie-up with James Ranger. Ranger struggling to get out of it while Bowden tightens the hold, however Ranger uses the ropes to momentum and push Bowden out of the hold. The Black Mamba is successful but BOWDEN WITH A CLOTHESLINE, TURNING RANGER INSIDE OUT AND CRASHING INTO THE GROUND!!! HE IMMEDIATELY COVERS HIM!
Nick Angel: But he kicks out almost immediately! What an unexpected seeking missile of a clothesline carried out by Bowden as he begins to pick him up! Bowden slowly taking his time while he bashes his face with forearms in intervals. Bowden pulls him up, making both men stand on their feet as Bowden on the offensive attack again as his right knee clashes against his midsection!
Kawajai: Nick, Bowden is purposely taking his time as he wants to prove to everyone why it his era, the “Golden Era’. Bowden playing with the crowd, raising his arm in the air as he has won while Ranger has a grasp of his leather pants, using it to get on his feet! Bowden not taking this lightly as he BATTERS HIS JAW WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! NO!!! RANGER DODGES IT, GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND AND ROLLS HIM UP FOR A PIN!!!
Nick Angel: Ranger was a second away from a big upset as he immediately charges at Bowden WITH A BULLDOZING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! He’s not wasting a millisecond as he immediately picks up Bowden and irish whips him into the opposite corner! He runs into the corner where Bowden is at BUT BOWDEN LIFTS HIM UP, CATCHES HIM IN A GERMAN SUPLEX POSITION AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A POP-UP GERMAN SUPLEX WITH A BRIDGED PIN!!
Kawajai: KICK OUT AT TWO AND A HALF AS BOWDEN DOESN’T LET GO AS HE STILL HAS HIM IN A GERMAN SUPLEX HOLD, TIGHTENING IT AS HE BRINGS HIM AND BOWDEN UP ON THEIR FEET!! BOWDEN LIFTS HIM UP FOR ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!! BUT RANGER WITH A WHEELBARROW PIN!!!
Nick Angel: BOTH MEN GET UP ON THEIR FEET AT THE SAME TIME AS RANGER STRIKES FIRST WITH THE DEATHSTRIKE!! THE SUPERKICK ACROSS THE JAW OF BOWDEN CONNECTS!!!! BUT BOWDEN REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND DROPS RANGER WITH A ROLLING CUTTER!!!!!!! BOWDEN BOUNCES BACK WITH A MOVE OF HIS OWN AS HE COLLAPSES ONTO RANGER!!
(DING! DING DING!)
( ‘War Zone’ by World War Me plays throughout the arena as Alex Bowden uses the ropes to get on his feet, smiling as he receives the taste of victory)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER……. AAAAALEXXXX BOOOOOOOOWWWWDEN!!
Nick Angel: Both men walked into the O2 Arena in London, England making a name for themselves and Alex Bowden was the man who used the opportunity he had tonight effectively!
( The camera transitions as Bowden steadies his way up the ramp )
(Woogieman is shown walking backstage with the Big Bhris Bhampionship on his shoulder as he’s about to make his way through the curtain and to address the fans, the sight of him solicits a huge pop)
Kawajai: And it looks like the top champi- excuse me, bhampion of Voltage is about to come out and address his loyal subjects! What could Woogieman have in mind tonight?
(Highlights of Woogieman’s journey in EAW plays from winning the Big Bhris Bhampionship on NEO to his open challenge, to moving to Dynasty and feuding with Shaker Jones, to defeating him at Pain for Pride to reclaim his championship, to his interaction with Chris Elite last week on Voltage)
(Camera transitions back to the arena as “If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre hits to loud cheers as Woogieman makes his way up the ramp with the Big Bhris Bhampionship held high, he confidently makes his way down as he slaps hands with fans and poses. He enters the ring as the music dies down)
Woogieman: I won’t take up too much of your time, so I must get down to business. If you know Woogie then you know the drill already. The Woogieman demands a challenge! I demand it now. I must be a fighting champion to prove myself as the top performer in EAW and I’ll take on any and all comers in order to do so! So if anybody feels confident enough to come and put their talent to the test, step on up to the plate!
(Woogieman paces around the ring waiting until suddenly, ‘Valhalla’ by Blind Guardian hits as a very large intimidating figure walks out to the ring leaving the fans around looking shocked at his stature. He stomps down the ramp in a “Sanatorium” shirt.)
Kawajai: Uh oh… this does not look good for Woogie, this guy has gotta stand at least 7 feet tall! I’ve never seen this man before in my life Nick who the hell even is he?
Nick Angel: I’m not quite sure either Kawa but I’m sure this is nothing the great Woogieman can’t handle!
(The large man steps into the ring as Woogieman looks on unphased)
Woogieman: What’s your name kid?
(He hands a mic to the man)
Man: My name…. is Ecl- Adalhard Ogmund, and I’m here to answer your challenge and put an end to this hypefest surrounding you.
Adalhard: You heard me boy. You’re nothing but a joke and a fluke and you seem to be the only person who doesn’t realize it. But I’ll put an end to this never ending running gag once and for all.
(Adalhard angrily slams the mic onto the ground)
Woogieman: Ring the bell.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: And it looks like Adalhard is not one for a lot of words as he immediately charges at Woogieman! …..BUT WOOGIEMAN WAS PREPARED, HE DUCKS UNDER AND IS NOW UNLEASHES A FURY OF PUNCHES AT THIS ADALHARD GUY! SOMEHOW HE’S ABLE TO WRAP HIS ARM AROUND THE SEVEN FOOTER AND….. THE BOTTOM!!!!! THE BOTTOM CONNECTS!!!!!! ADALHARD IS LAID OUT AND WOOGIE NOW GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!
Ref: ONE!!!!!…. TWO!!!!!!….. THREE!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Sofia Clarke: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL BIG BHRIS BHAMPION….. THEEEE WOOGIEMAN!!!!!!!!!
(“If Ya Smell” picks back up as Woogie is handed his championship and has his arm lifted by the ref, he stands on top of the laid out Adalhard as he celebrates)
Kawajai: Woogieman does the impossible by defeating a seven footer! What a goat!
Nick Angel: Is there anything this man can’t do? :wow:
(Woogie is shown posing as the camera fades to black)
(Matt Daniels is seen sitting in his much smaller new office, browsing through soundcloud on his laptop until suddenly he hears a knock on his door.)
Matt(mumbling under his breath): It better not be these Enterprise idiots again.. COME IN!
(The door opens as we see VIP accompanied by a bunch of women and at the door.0
Matt: Oh… it’s you. How’s it going?
VIP: Wassup bossman, if you even the bossman at this point. Life is amazing it is what it should be, I was around in the neighborhood and I thought to myself why not visit somebody in power and get what I deserve, you do still have power right?
Matt: Of course I do, but what do you mean get what you deserve?
VIP: You know what happened last week boi, I beat Xander in a match, so he’s a Duppy.
Matt: A what?
VIP: He’s donezo! Finished! I bodied that man and I should automatically get a title shot because of it!
Matt: So you think you should be next in line for the New Breed Championship?
VIP: Yes indeed!
Matt: Well you make a good point you did defeat the champion, but I’m not sure. He has his match at MSM next week and I’m sure Dynasty may have their contender lined up.
VIP: Man fuck allat! Only one person beat Xander and that was me. At the end of the day, Tsunami Yayo, Gayo, Mayo, Manti Teo or whatever the fuck that weirdos name is… he can’t hold a candle to Vincent I Motherfucking Pride. He’s not even the best dude on his brand that’s named after a natural disaster! He makes Rednax over there actually look like a credible champion and that’s saying a lot! You know and I know, regardless of who wins at MSM, VIP should be up next for the chip, you gotta be nice for what to these brands? Voltage is the number one priority as long as I reside here, might as well call it Voltage Is Pride or some shit like that, that’s at least more creative than Payne for Pride.
Matt: You know what… you make a compelling case VIP. I’ll tell you what, a man with the energy and charisma that you display would be great to represent our New Breed division so I’ll give you a shot. At the Voltage Supershow Crossfire, you’ll face whoever the New Breed Champion is for the title. Hows that sound?
VIP: Sounds almost as good as that Scorpion album, I won’t let you down, salute! And as a token of my appreciation…
(One of VIP’s girls walks over to a hesitant Matt as she bends over to give him a kiss while he’s seated in his chair, his face can be seen turning red as he’s blushing. The girl then goes back to VIP’s arms as they walk out of the office. The group suddenly stops to stare somebody down who seems to be walking towards Matt’s office, that person ends up being Charlie Marr who stares a hole right back into VIP’s eyes as he bumps one of the females with his shoulder and proceeds to make his way towards Matt.)
Matt: Oh great.
Charlie: Don’t “oh great” me, that’s right ANOTHER person barges into your office. You should be glad you even still have a job to do right now because from the looks of it you’re being ran out. It’s a shame too because my clique very well could have helped you instead of you sitting there taking a beating like a coward afraid to lose his job.
Matt: What the hell do you want?
Charlie: Oh now you wanna be fiesty, direct that energy elsewhere, not to me.
Charlie: Last week I was not pinned, I was not submitted, and my match was interfered in. I want another shot to become the number one contender for the National Elite Championship.
Matt: But we already determined a contender… your partner.
Charlie: And that’s all fine but the fact of the matter is that nobody needs this more than I do. Daryl can still be contender, we can be co-contenders if I’m given another shot to prove myself, but I need just that… a shot.
Matt: Okay but…. What about your opponent?
Charlie: Jacob Moore? I’ve faced Jacob many times before and ironically it was for National Elite Championship implications, if anything it’d couldn’t be any more fitting if Jacob vs myself was a number one contenders match for that title, because quite frankly we have unfinished business and it involves that title. So what do you say? Me vs Jacob, winner makes it a triple threat match with Daryl Kinkade and POP.
(Matt thinks to himself for a second before answering)
Matt: You know what? I’ll give you this one last opportunity. I mean since I am in the mood of giving opportunities and since I am the general manager of this brand I can do what the hell I want right?
Charlie: I don’t know, can you?
Matt: You’re damn right I can! And I will…. Tonight you vs Jacob Moore in your little unfinished grudge match whatever you wanna call it thingamajig, winner is added to POP vs Daryl Kinkade for the National Elite Championship….. At Crossfire!
Charlie: Now that’s more like it. I won’t let you down boss.
(Charlie confidently walks off as Matt Daniels looks on)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a number one contenders match for the National Elite Championship!
( ‘This Charming Man’ by The Smiths starts playing as Charlie Marr makes his way to the ring receiving a huge pop by the hometown crowd. )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from London, United Kingdom, weighing in at 240 pounds, CHARLIEEEE MAAARRRRRR!
Angel: Charlie Marr has been impressive since his return, let’s see if he can bounce back after that loss last week.
( ‘Today’ by Smashing Pumpkins plays as Jacob Moore comes out on the arena with a smile on his face, slowly making his way to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 216 pounds, “The American Psycho”, JACOOOOOB MOOOOOOREEEEEEE!
Kawajai: Moore proved a point last week in a victory against Alex Bowden, can he get another one again?
Angel: Moore as a veteran against Charlie as a rising star in the business, I’m excited to see what these two can offer.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Kawajai: The match is underway as both men circle around eachother as Charlie applies an armlock on Jacob, but Jacob counters with a wristlock. Jacob pushes Charlie to the ropes as Charlie charges for a clothesline but Jacob ducks underneath, but Charlie manages to grab Jacob and pushes him to the ropes as JACOB CONNECTS WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE, no, Jacob taunting Charlie standing right in his face, staring eachother down. Charlie pushes Jacob away as Jacob feels disrespected and slaps Charlie in the face. Charlie looking angry as he stares Jacob and delivers a few of hard punches to Jacob, now Charlie stomping the hell out of Jacob and Moore falls down, holding on the middle rope.
Angel: Charlie won’t let Jacob get into his head like that and he made it clear he isn’t joking right now. And I don’t blame him, he needs to prove a point after failing an opportunity for the National Elite Championship.
Kawajai: However Jacob now has turned the match into his favour as he has Charlie into the corner and JACOB DELIVERING SOME THUNDEROUS CHOPS INTO THE CHEST OF CHARLIE. JACOB NOW WITH AN EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO CHARLIE AND IT’S FOLLOWED WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER. JACOB GOES FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONE! TW-
Angel: A quick kickout by Charlie as Jacob gets Charlie on his feet, but charlie bounces back with some elbows to the skull of Jacob. Charlie now with a headbutt dazing Jacob AS HE CONNECTS WITH A SNAP SULPEX. JACOB GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AS CHARLIE CHARGES TOWARDS HIM… BIG BOOOT! CHARLIE WITH THE COVER!
Ref: ONE! TW-
Angel: Kickout by Moore. A match full of action, just as expected with both men going back and forth with eachother. Charlie has the headlock in and he’s holding it althrough Jacob is trying to escape it, but Charlie holds on. Jacob desperately pushes Charlie face-first on the turnbuckle and he manages to escape it. Jacob now with a roundhouse to the cornered Charlie Marr as Jacob makes a few steps back AND CONNECTS WITH A MISSLE DROPKICK MAKING CHARLIE COLLAPSE TO THE FLOOR HOLDING HIS CHEST IN PAIN. Smart strategy by Jacob taking Charlie down and regaining some energy that will be much needed against a guy like Charlie.
Kawajai: But Charlie is now on his feet as Jacob places him in position for a snap suplex, but no, Charlie holds on as Charlie now connects with a snap suplex. Jacob gets quickly up as Charlie goes for the running knee lift, but no, Jacob gets out of the way and rolls Charlie up! Cover!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
Kawajai: But Marr kicks out. Jacob trying to steal it, but it didn’t go as plannes as JACOB CONNECTS WITH A LEAPING KNEE DROP RIGHT AFTER THE KICKOUT. JACOB CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE GOING FOR THE MOONSAULT AND HE CONNECTS! NOO, CHARLIE MANAGED TO CATCH HIM AS CHARLIE CONNECTS WITH A FRONT POWERSLAM. Charlie looks like he’s back into this match as he grabs Jacob by the hair and connects with an armdrag, locking Jacob’s jaw. Jacob turns around having Charlie in the german suplex position, but Charlie COUNTERS AND CONNECTS WITH A BACKDROP SUPLEX ON JACOB MOORE. NO, JACOB LANDED ON HIS FEET AND JACOB CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST ON CHARLIE AND MARR IS DOWN.
Angel: And just like that, Jacob Moore can turn the match into his advantage. Impressive skills by the EAW veteran, as Charlie Marr is now on his feet. Jacob with a kick to the mid-section of Marr as he stands back to back with Charlie, grabs his arms…BLUE MONDAY! IT CONNECTS! JACOB GOES FOR THE COVER! JACOB WINS IT!
Ref: ONE!!! TWOO!!! THREEEEE-
Angel: WHAT?! CHARLIE KICKED OUT! HE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! JACOB CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES! HOW DID CHARLIE SURVIVE THE VERTEBREAKER? Jacob now frustrated stomping the hell out of Charlie. Jacob with a knee drop to the face of Charlie. Jacob gets Charlie up, getting him up on the top corner. Is he really going for it? Jacob is going for the Landslide. No, Charlie with a punch, another punch, Charlie pushes Jacob down and he falls off, landing with his back. Jacob gets on his feet AND CHARLIE MARR WITH A HIGH RISE DROPKICK FROM THE TOP ROPE! LIGHTS OUT FOR JACOB! CHARLIE GETS JACOB IN POSITION… THE QUEEN IS DEAD! IT’S OVER!! THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWOOOO!!! THREEEE!!!
Kawajai: NO WAY! WHAT THE?! JACOB GOT HIS FOOT ON THE ROPE! HE’S STILL IN IT! MARR IS ON HIS FEET CELEBRATING. The referee tells him the match isn’t over and he can’t believe his eyes! What will it take Marr to pin Jacob? Charlie throws Jacob out of the ring and he follows him, planting Moore’s head to the apron! Moore is almost busted open! CHARLIE DRIVES MOORE HEAD FIRST TO THE RING POST! MOORE IS OUT! HE DEFINETLY IS OUT THIS TIME! CHARLIE GETS MOORE BACK IN, CHARLIE GOING FOR THE RUNNING LARIAT, BUT IT’S REVERSED INTO A FLAPJACK BY JACOB! HOW THE HELL IS HE STILL ON?! JACOB GOES FOR THE COVER, BUT MARR POWERS JACOB AWAY. BOTH MEN ARE STANDING EXHAUSTED IN THE FLOOR, WITH MOORE LOOKING MOTIONLESS AFTER THE DEMOLITION BY CHARLIE ON THE OUTSIDE. BRUTAL!
Angel: Like we said before, it was expectable for this match to be like this. You have one of the fastest rising stars of EAW against one of the most talented and experienced guys in EAW. Meanwhile Charlie Marr standing on the apron CONNECTING WITH A SLINGSHOT ELBOW DROP TO JACOB MORE! NOW HE HAS MOORE UNDER CONTROL. CHARLIE TAKES A MOMENT TO FLEX, RISING HIS HAND UP IN THE AIR IN SIGN OF VICTORY! HE SEEMS PRETTY CONFIDENT NOW THAT HE HAS THE MATCH ON HIS HAND. MARR CONNECTS WITH A SNAP SUPLEX DRIVING MOORE TO THE CORNER! MORE SEEMS MOTIONLESS! CHARLIE MARR WITH THE ‘DEATH OR GLORY’, A DAZED MOORE GOES TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND IT’S FOLLOWED BY THE HEADMASTER RITUAL! THE SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS! COULD THIS BE IT? THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWOOOO!!! THREEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP…….. CHARLIE MARRRRRR!!!!!
Kawajai: Charlie does it! He redeems himself from last weeks loss against an old foe and he qualifies for the National Elite Championhip at Crossfire! Charlie told our GM Matt Daniels that he would not let him down and he delivered on his promise, congrats to that young man!
(Andy Dominguez, LC, and Jackson Blayde are all seen standing in front of Andy’s office as they are having a conversation.)
LC: Can you believe it? Matt is actually trying to be a competent commissioner now that he has us breathing down his neck.
Andy: It’s hilarious but hey makes for a better product in the end.
LC: I’m glad we’re able to keep these guys on the top of their game by our meer presence alone, that’s how you restore a feeling.
LC: Alright so, I’m gonna go show Blayde the ropes and walk him through how we handle business during show days, I’ll find Matt as well and have him assist us. Andy if you don’t mind, stay by the office and hold the fort down will ya?
Andy: Yeah no problem.
LC: Alright come with me kid..
(LC and Blayde walk off as Andy looks on watching them go down the hall. Andy then turns around to go back into the office until suddenly he’s bumrushed and hemmed up by none other than…. Devan Dubian. Devan has Andy pinned up to the wall while he’s being lifted off of his feet by his shirt collar. Devan looks at Andy with a devious look to stares back with a frightened expression seemingly copping pleas.)
Devan: I was hoping to run into your little toys but it seems as if I just missed the cutoff period, but that’s fine. I’ll just settle for you. I heard those comments you made earlier, what would you know about recruiting talent you short sighted hack? You’re the same piece of shit who when I was a rookie in this company, decided to put your stock into my then-partner and pulled all the strings possible backstage only for him to become one of the biggest disappointments in EAW history and a bigger smudge on the Grand Rampage winner list than our most recent winner. Meanwhile I’m an all time great and will be remembered above the likes of not only you, but LC as well. Deep down you wish you could find another prospect in this company as good as myself to mold into the future of EAW. Unfortunately for you there is only one Devan Dubian. Your partner’s gonna find that out next Saturday the hard way.
(Dub lets Andy down and sarcastically dusts him off and fixes him up before walking off. Andy breathes a sigh of relief and turns around to go back into his office as suddenly Dub appears running back into the frame and hits him with a Jumping Cutter leaving him laid out flat.)
Devan: Tell LC that Dub sends his regards.
(Dub walks off as Andy lays there lifeless)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!!
(‘It Follows‘ by Cane Hill plays to a sea of boos, as the dastardly, yet successful New Breed Champion, Xander Payne heads down to the ring holding his belt proudly on his shoulder).
Nick Angel: One of the most promising prospects of EAW today, but also one of the most controversial. Xander Payne is a polarizing figure to some, and a hated one to others. He arriving to EAW with trash talking wit, captured The New Breed Title, albeit it off of Alex Bowden, and has now been leading the charge into Season 12. And now, her seeks to topple one of EAW’s best, who’s fallen off the trail in recent months….
Bella Braxton: introducing first…. From Brampton, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 255lbs… He is The EAW New Breed Champion- XANDER PAYNE!!!!!!
(‘4th Dimension‘ by Kids See Ghosts hits to a mixed reaction, as Lars Grier comes out onto the ramp, looking more intense and walking with more purpose than he has in the last two months. He slides into the ring, locking eyes with Xander).
Bella Braxton: And His opponent…. Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing in at 265lbs…. LARS GRIER!!!!!!
Kawajai: And here he is, Lars Grier. The Crooked Man, as he calls himself now. Although Lars has had a string of bad luck, he’s still filled with untapped potential. A man who showed, he would’ve had O’hara’s number, a guy who cleared house of the heavyweight division, and someone who’s more than a threat for anyone else
Nick Angel: If there would be a better person for Grier to break his bad luck streak over, no man on the Voltage Roster would provide a more satisfying target, than Xander Payne. Let’s see if The Crooked Raven’s still got what it takes.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!).
Kawajai: And Xander Payne hauling ass out out of the gates!!! Payne trash talking as usual, as he goes for a MEAN Lariat on grier!!! But Grier Ducks, instead coming hot with a Southpaw to the back of Xander’s head!!!! Grier with a kick to Payne’s right hanstring, and a chop as the New Breed Champ turns around, right to the neck!!! Lars locking up a clinch, no, it’s a chest to chest lock, Going for a Belly to Belly Suplex!!!
Nick Angel: No Dice!!!! Payne block with his leg, and sends two pounding slaps to the sides of grier’s head breaking the hold, probably learned that from all the suplexers he’s faced. Grier dazed, and Xander with a Clothesline!!! Xander working Grier on the ground as he stomps hard on his chest, and a kick to the World Contender’s head!!!
(Xander grabs Lars by his vest and pulls him up to meet his face).
Xander: (Off Mic) You were NEVER worthy!!! I did more than you ever have in your Career!!! All you are is Elite’s stepping ston-
Kawajai: Lars SPITS in the face of the trash talking Payne, Literally!!! Grier gets a facelock from the ground, Short DDT!!!! Xander’s head spikes as Grier pushes him off, running for the nearby ropes- YAKUZA KICK TO XANDER AS HE TRIES TO STAND!!!! Xander is leveld as Lars slides, and flips over, landing as his two fists keep him off the ground, looking like a prowling animal as Xander rises- grier sprints!!!!! ROCKET KICK!!!! XANDER IS LEVELED!!!!! Grier rebounding- DROP KICK TO THE HEAD OF XANDER PAYNE!!!! Grier COVERS!!!
Nick Angel: No Dice. Xander Payne kicks out!!! Grier sitting up, trying to come up with a new gameplan- BUT PAYNE FROM BEHIND!!!! LOCKING IN SOME SORT OF JURY RIGGED CHOKEHOLD!!!!! He doesn’t wrap his legs, instead using the leverage on grier’s neck as a way to stand, Xander transitions to a headlock!!!
Kawajai: And now he takes strikes with his free arm!!!! Xander trying to pound on Grier’s face, dunno if he’s going for aKo of some sort, but he’s really wailing on him!! Grier trying to pull back- But Xander KICKS BACK with his right leg, Grier’s left knee is buckled, as he can only try to block Xander’s strikes!!!! But wait- Grier wrapping his arms around Xander- OLYMPIC SLAM!!!!! OLYMPIC SLAM!!!!
Nick Angel: Grier just took the big guy OVER HIS HEAD, and send him spiking onto his NECK, with an Olympic Slam Suplait!!!!!!! Xander clutching his neck as Grier checks his battered nose, blood starting to leak out. Uh oh, Grier looking viciously, animalistically at Xander. He’s sizing up the big guy…. And going to the corner, Uh oh, I think I know what’s coming!!!
Kawajai: The Concussed Xander rising to his feet, Grier sizing him up- GRIER SPRINTING ACROSS THE RING!!!! BROOOOKEEEN BEAK!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: XANDER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!!!! XANDER ROLLS OUTTA THE WAY, AND GRIER GOES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!!!! OUCH!!!!!
Kawajai: Dunno if it’s just concussion, but it looks like Grier went so far in, he could be WEDGED in there for a guy his size!!!!! Doesn’t matter to Xander, because he just pulls him out, and sits the downed Grier in the corner and keeps him therewith a mean knee to the chin!!!!
Nick Angel: Xander heading back to the ring center, yelling “IS THIS YOUR GOLDEN BOY?!”. Gotta give it to him, trash talker til the end. Xander breaking out of his rant, and runs to the corner!!!! CAAAANNOOONNBAAALLLLL!!!! RUNNING CORNER CANNONBALL TO GRIER!!!! Grier is SMASHED as the 255lbs man crashes into him, and rolls off!! Say what you want about Xander’s physique, when it comes to moves like that, Round is… In shape
Kawajai: ….. Fuck outta here Nick
Nick Angel: What- Oh, Xander running around the ring, flipping off the booing crowd, as he gets settled in the center of the ring- Grier now trying to stand, looking pained, XANDER RUNS!!!! CANNNOOONBAAALLLLL!!!!!!! RUNNING CORNER- GRIER LEAPS!!!! GRIER LEAPS OVER THE HUMAN MEATBALL- I MEAN, METEOR, AND LANDS, STUMBLING BACK INTO THE RING CENTER!!!
Kawajai: Grier looking more refreshed now, ha! Ha!! Baited Xander, who’s now crumbled after headbutting the turnbuckle at running speed!!! Lars shaking his head as he walks over, and forces Xander to stand up- XANDER WITH A HEADBUTT!!!! NOPE!!! Grier leans back and then proceeds to deck Xander with a Forearm!!! The momentum is majorly shifting- EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!!!!! Xander is rocked- EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!!! AGAIN!!!! Xander- IS HIT WITH ANOTHER EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! Lars UNLOADING as he batters Xander in the corner, Lars backs up- LOW RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, COMPLETING THE GRIER MONTAGE!!!!
Nick Angel: Xander collapses forward into Lars’s arms, who locks a chest to chest lock- BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!!! Grier pops up after Xander yells and grabs his head, the various shots to the head now majorly aggravated- And Grier is… smirking? It looks like Grier is thoroughly pleased with himself, He heads over and gets an armpit – over the shoulder lock on Xander as he pulls him to his feet- FALCON ARROW!!!!!!
Kawajai: BUT XANDER TWISTS AND LANDS ON HIS FEET!!!! He just BARELY had the concentration power left- XANDER WITH A FRONT KICK TO LARS’S LEFT KNEE, AND NOW A SPINNING HEEL KICK, AND FINALLY A SUPERKICK!!!!! Grier’s already hurt knee collapses, but Xander goes for a face lock- Grier answering by forcing a lock up- XANDER WITH A STUFF PALM STRIKE!!!! And now Lars with a EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!!! XANDER WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST, AND SENDS LARS STAGGERING BACK WITH A DISCUS PALM STRIKE!!!!
Nick Angel: Lars looking rocked, the technician is not known for his major striking, but Xander looks just as worse for wear after all those uppercuts!!! Xander goading Lars to come at him, I think he’s trying to set something up, grier knowing he needs to capitalize, he runs for Xander- XANDER WITH A GUT KICK TO THE STOMACH OF GRIER!!!! But Grier dodges that shit and pushes him off!!!! Instead, a hard LARIAT TO XANDER!!! Payne doesn’t go down, but Grier sidesteps, LARIAT!!! Xander again staggered- LARIAT!!! LARIAT!!!! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!!! Xander is sent HARD DOWN TO THE MAT!!!! That sounded like a God Damn Gunshot!!!! Grier heading to the corner, He’s sitting there, bathing in the aura, the crowd atleast semi on his side- GRIER SPRINTS!!!!!!! BRRROOOOKKEEEEENNN BEEEAAAAKKKK!!!!!! GRIER COVERS!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!).
(‘4th Dimension’ by Kids hits as Lars grier stands tall despite his injured leg, raising both hands in victory with the referee).
Bella Braxton: And Here is your winner!!!! LARS GRIER!!!!
Kawajai: HE DID IT!!! HA HA!!!!! It took MONTHS, We watched him stumble for weeks, but I think we just saw Grier take his first step back to the TOP!!!!
Nick Angel: Xander is a man who has beaten many people to get to The New Breed Championship, and Lars Grier knocking him down to size shows Grier is still a force to be reckoned with here on Voltage!!
(Lars grier heads up the ramp, a hand raised as the camera fades out [TRANSITION] ).
(Voltage comes back on air as “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem plays from the speakers as Noah Reigner steps out with the same outfit he always wears, and his manager Evelyn Ridley behind him. However, her shoulder is still hurt from Lars’ assault on the Voltage week’s before, as he tends to it, walking down to the ring before sliding in and performing his signature “assault rifle pose”.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first! Being accompanied by Evelyn Ridley! From Seattle, Washington – and representing the Combat Church! Weighing in at 184 POOUNDSSS!!!!!!……He is ‘THE ASSAULT RIFLE’… NOOOAHHH REEEEIIIGNNNNEERRR!!!!!!!!!
(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by The Foo Fighters then plays as Devan Dubian steps out, staring across the sea of fans before him and raising his arm in defiance. He then walks down to the ring, string down Noah Reigner with determination.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Leicester, England! Weighing in at 230 POOUNDSSS!!!!!…….DEEEEVAAAANNN DUUUBBIIAAANNN!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: This match up has begun between Devan Dubian and Noah Reigner, the two of them whom have met each other previously in the Cash in the Vault Match at Pain for Pride, and as we can see it was Noah who managed to pave the way to his victory by grabbing onto that briefcase. Tonight, they meet in singles and you can bet Devan wants some way to get revenge from that night, as the two men look at each other……AND NOAH CHARGES FIRST! OH MY! REIGNER WITH A SHOOT KICK DRIVING RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF DUBIAN! Looks like we’re skipping the technicalities tonight as Noah stops that with a sharp kick to Dubian’s chest…..THEN TO HIS LEGS! THEN TO HIS CHEST! Noah fighting him off with a combination of leg and chest attacks – BUT DEVAN SEES THROUGH IT AS HE CATCHES ONE OF THE LEGS AND SENDS NOAH DOWN WITH A LARIAT! Noah is knocked down but quickly gets back up as to not lose any momentum…..BUT THAT STOPS AS DUBIAN FIRES WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! THEN ANOTHER, A THIRD! A FOURTH! A FIFTH! A SIXTH! DEVAN UNRELENTING IN HIS ASSAULT AGAINST REIGNER AS HE COMPLETED THE RAPID-FIRE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ASSAULT WITH A FINAL ONE TO DAZE HIS OPPONENT!
Nick Angel: Reigner almost drops down to the mat but is stopped by Devan who lifts him by the head…..AND GOES FOR BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! BUT NOAH IS FIGHTING IT! He’s battling it with all his might, and he eventually escapes with some well placed knee strikes to his chest! Dubian lets go, BUT DOES NOT STOP HIS MOMENTUM AS HE CHARGES NOAH – NOPE! NOAH USES HIS OWN SPEED AGAINST HIM AS HE SENDS DUBIAN FLYING OVER THE ROPES! A smart tactic by Noah in force tonight as Dubian rolls over the top and onto ringside, with Reigner not to far behind! He walks outside, grabbing Devan by his tights and hair……AND SLAMS HIM RIGHT ONTO THE BARRICADE! UGH! Devan’s head bounces off the hard barricade as Noah looks satisfied with what he’s done to his opponent! He lifts Dubian once more, grabbing his head and arms……FOR A FALCON ARROW ONTO THE RINGSIDE MAT! JESUS! NOAH JUST ABSOLUTELY TOOK DUBIAN OUT, AND NOW A FEW MORE STOMPS FOR GOOD MEASURE! WOW! Reigner utilizing the ringside area to his advantage as now the referee starts the count with Dubian struggling to stand on the outside! Noah rolls into the ring, not throwing Dub back in as the ref starts counting!
Kawajai: Noah gives a sick grin, looking towards Dubian then to Evelyn Ridley in his corner, nodding. Devan’s slowly rising to his feet! WILL HE MAKE THE COUNT?!
Nick Angel: DUBIAN IS UP TO HIS FEET AND HE QUICKLY ROLLS BACK IN BEFORE THE COUNT REACHES SEVEN! OH! BUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY NOAH REIGNER PUTS DUBIAN DOWN AGAIN WITH A KICK TO HIS CHEST – WAIT! HE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY OF THE KICK BEFORE IT CAN CONNECT! He rolls back onto his feet as Noah walks towards him – AND OH! RIGHT INTO A STUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ONCE MORE! Noah is taken aback, and he uses that opportunity to grab Noah by his head AND DRIVE HIM DOWN WITH A SNAP DDT! BUT HE DOESN’T LET GO OF THE HEAD! Dubian picks Reigner once more off the mat and places his feet on the ropes……FOR A ROPE-HUNG DDT! THERE HE IS! Classic Devan with that rope-hung DDT as Noah is down on the mat, allowing for him to lay on top of him for the cover!
Kawajai: KICK OUT BY THE ASSAULT RIFLE! Mr. Cash In The Vault is still up for the fight but Devan knows it would happen as almost immediately after he kicks out he stands up TO DELIVER A JUMPING STOMP RIGHT INTO HIS CHEST! DAMN! Dubian takes the wind out of his chest as Noah lets out a sharp breath, giving him perfect opportunity to stomp…..NOW ON HIS LEG! He walks forward, THEN STOMPS ON NOAH’S CHEST ONCE MORE! Slow, systematic and punishing stomps being used by Devan to take his opponent down slowly, as he gets ready for the kill…..he picks Noah’s head off the ground and places it between his legs, THEN LIFTS HIM HIGH IN THE AIR! HE’S LOOKING FOR FLASH STEP TO END THIS MATCH! HERE IT COMES! THE OVER THE SHOULDER BACK-TO-BELLY PILEDRIVER! BUT WAIT! NOAH LANDS ON HIS FEET! HIS HEAD ISN’T DRIVEN TO THE MAT AND DEVAN IS IN SHOCK! NOAH USES THAT SHOCK TO FIRE OFF WITH A GIGANTIC HAYMAKER TO DEVAN, SENDING HIM REELING BACK INTO THE CORNER! What great ingenuity by Noah as he manages to escape and reverse the pile driver…..now he runs to the opposite corner from Devan’s……RUNNING DOUBLE KNEE STRIKE TO HIM CONNECTS! RIGHT INTO HIS CHEST! The wind is knocked right out his sails as Noah grabs his opponent’s arm, wrapped around his chest…..AND CONNECTS WITH THE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE! WOLFE’S BLOOD! IT CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS, SENDING DEVAN DOWN AND NOW REIGNER HAS TURNED THE TABLES AGAINST HIS OPPONENT! But wait…he isn’t going for the pin!
Nick Angel: Nah – Noah wants to be sure! He wants to end this by finishing Devan off for good, to be completely sure of victory! He’s waiting, biding his time for Dubian to get up – WAIT WHAT THE HELL?!
(The crowd rises up as the camera turns to see Lars Grier on the ramp, microphone in hand. Evelyn turns with a look of anger in her face, so does Noah.)
Kawajai: IT’S LARS GRIER! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE, AGAIN?! He’s always interfering – BUT OH! EVELYN IS FURIOUS! SHE’S ATTEMPTING TO ATTACK LARS BUT CAMERON IS HOLDING HER BACK! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS MIGHT GET UGLY! SHE’S KICKING AND SCREAMING, FIGHTING TO GET A PIECE OF LARS!
Evelyn Ridley (no mic): I’LL KILL YOU FOR WHAT YOU DID TO ME! DO YOU HEAR ME?! DO YOU HEAR ME?!
Nick Angel; AND LARS IS JUST LAUGHING HER OFF! She has every right to attempt to assault Grier, ESPECIALLY after what he did to her! But Lars doesn’t seem to care, not by any stretch of imagination as he shrugs her off!
(Noah is visibly angry in the ring as he asks what Lars is doing.)
Lars: What am I doing here? Oh – nothing much, really. I’m just here to offer you…..a piece of advice, Noah. I’m here to offer peace, to both you and Ms. Ridley over here. No fighting, no violence will be needed – I just want to talk.
(Evelyn and Noah look on, visibly furious.)
Lars: See – if there’s anything I’ve learned in this business, the most valuable piece of information that I’ve ever received was something I figured out the hard way.
Noah: WHAT’S YOUR FUCKING POINT?!
Lars: My point is simple, Noah. One thing you will learn in this business: Never take your eyes off an opponent.
Kawajai: OH MY GOD! DEVAN DUBIAN WITH THE BLEEDING EDGE! THE BLEEDING EDGE! OH MY GOD! THE JUMPING CUTTER OUT OF NOWHERE TAKING NOAH DOWN, AND HERE GOES DEVAN FOR THE WIN! OH MY GOD!
Lars: You’re welcome.
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by The Foo Fighters plays throughout the arena as fans boo heavily at the victory that just took place. Evelyn is angry even more as she tries to rush towards Lars once more but is still held back.)
Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER……DEEVAAAANNN DUUUBBIAAANNN!!!!!
Nick Angel: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!
Kawajai: LARS, THE SCUM, COST NOAH ONCE AGAIN ANOTHER MATCH-UP BECAUSE OF HIS PETTINESS! ONCE AGAIN, HE HAS INTERFERED AND CAUSED THE DOWNFALL OF REIGNER!
Nick Angel: Crazy. Absolutely crazy. The rivalry between these two men has boiled down to something vile, something vicious and hateful and the only way they can settle it is through a crazy, insane match-up that will put them through the ringer. Lars once again interfering in Noah’s match, leading to Dubian’s victory and adding fuel to the already massive fire! He almost had it won, were it not for Lars. Wow. Just wow.
Kawajai: Only one question remains right now after this: Just HOW will this rivalry end?
(Camera fades backstage to Sofia Clarke standing by with the Prince of Phenomenal)
Sofia Clarke: I’m here with my guest at this time… the National Elite Champion…. Prince of Phenomenal!!!!
(The crowd can be heard giving a loud 50/50 reaction of cheers and boos from Daryl Kinade and Charlie Marr’s London home crowd)
Sofia: POP, last week Daryl Kinkade won a match that named him the number one contender for your National Elite Championship, any words on that?
POP: Not really. Great another person lined up to take an L to yours truly, congrats! I’m sure for Daryl this is a career defining moment for him as he is on cloud nine probably ecstatic at the thought of stepping into the ring with someone of my stature. He’ll quickly come down from that high when he realizes that he is in over his head and there is no competition between the two of us. We may be on the same billing but we are not on the same level. He’s just a rookie, nobody knows anything about him. I don’t know who half these people backstage are so I damn sure don’t know who he is. Do you Sofia?
Sofia: Wellll… he’s one of the brightest young promising stars on the brand. He was a standout on NEO, he alongside Charlie Marr took Mr. DEDEDE and Cameron Ella Ava to their limits at Pain for Pride, he-
POP: Stop right there. You said a lot but you also said nothing important. Because the fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter who he is if he isn’t the Prince of Phenomenal.
Sofia: Charlie Marr has also recently won a number one contenders match for your championship. Any words on that?
POP: Charlie Marr, the man who couldn’t get the job done last week has a second chance this week? Sad! But in all honesty, I’m glad I have a chance to face him again, because I lost to him in a fluke earlier this year on Showdown and that needs to be corrected. So Mr. Third Place Marr better get ready because him and his little buddy are about to be shown, that there’s levels to this shit.
(POP walks off angrily as the camera fades and transitions elsewhere backstage)
(A graphic displays showing: POP & Chris Elite vs Rex McAllister & Daryl Kinkade – NEXT!)
(The camera fades back into the arena where the ring announcer, Bella Braxton is standing in the middle of the ring, microphone in hand.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING! AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Still Unbroken” by Lynyrd Skynyrd blasts throughout the arena speakers as Rex McAllister walks from the backstage area down to the ring, high-fiving fans along the way.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Sea Isle, New Jersey! Weighing in at 238 POOUNDSS!!!!……”THE REX MASTER” REEEXXXXX MCCCAAAALLIIISSTEEEERRRR!!!
Kawajai: AND HERE COMES OUR MAIN EVENT! Tonight, Rex McAllister teams up with Daryl Kinkade to face off against the team of Chris Elite and Prince of Phenomenal! Champions vs challengers in the main event for tonight, with the Voltage Supershow coming soon, I know that whoever wins this match-up will have surefire momentum heading into it.
(“What A Shame” by Too Close To Touch hits to a huge pop as Daryl Kinkade steps out, Rex McAllister nodding his head at his tag team partner before he rolls into the ring.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER! From Norwich, England! Weighing in at 215 POOUNDSSS!!!!!!……DAAARYYLLL KIIIINNKKAAAADEEEEE!!!!!
(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray then echoes throughout the arena as Prince of Phenomenal walks out, National Elite Championship across his head, performing his signature pose with a smile on his face. He stares down Daryl Kinkade from the ramp as the he walks down to the ring, keeping an eye out on both of them.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS, FIRST! From South Beach, Florida! Weighing in at 220 POOOUNDSS!!!!…..HE IS YOUR NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, PRINCE! OF! PHEENOMEENAALLL!!!
(“Odee” by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie then sounds across the arena to loud applause from the fans as Chris Elite walks down, World Heavyweight Championship draped over his shoulder with Big Mike trailing not too far behind him. He runs down to the ring, rolling in quickly as he gets into his respective corner along with POP.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER! From Brooklyn, New York! Weighing in at 210 POOUNDSSS!!!!!……HE IS YOUR EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION…….CHRRIIISSS EEELLIIITTEEEEE!!!!!
Nick Angel: And it looks to be that Daryl Kinkade and Chris Elite are starting this main event match tonight. Man, I can’t wait to see how this plays out.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: And this match is underway, with Daryl Kinkade and Chris Elite starting off the match-up, the two men circling each other now in the middle of the ring, waiting for a viable opportunity to strike…..and the two men lock-up in a collar and elbow tie-up! These two men have faced off against one another before on a special main event of NEO, but times have changed, as tonight Daryl is improved and Elite is the current World Heavyweight Champion! These two men looking to see who has the upper hand…..and it’s Kinkade who manages to switch behind Elite with a waistlock, wrapping his arms around. But Chris manages to escape by sliding under Daryl, pushing Daryl into the ropes! Kinkade comes back AND ELITE WITH AN ATHLETIC LEAPFROG OVER HIS OPPONENT! Daryl comes right back as Elite drops down onto his belly, but Kinkade notices that Elite drops down……AND HE DROPS DOWN HIMSELF WITH AN ELBOW TO CHRIS’ SPINE! Chris shoots up from the pain, grabbing the middle of his back as it collided with the point of Daryl’s elbow, the two men back to square one! Elite looks almost impressed at how Daryl managed to gain the upper hand on that one, recognizing how he has improved and changed since he first arrived onto the scene on NEO!
Kawajai: Indeed, as the two men go to a lock-up once more, this time Chris pushing Kinkade further and further from the middle, pushing and rubbing him against the ropes! The referee is forced to break them as he counts!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Nick Angel: Chris walks back with his hands up, showing he isn’t going to break any rules – BUT DARYL DOESN’T DO THE SAME AS HE SWINGS FOR A RIGHT TO THE CHAMPION! ELITE DUCKS IT AND RAMS INTO DARYL’S CHEST, PUSHING HIM AGAINST THE ROPES AND FORCING HIM TO BOUNCE OFF! BUT HE DOESN’T REBOUND OFF AS HE PERFORMS A HANDSPRING! WOAH! AND KINKADE FLIPS BACK WITH AN HANDSPRING ENZIGURI – BUT CHRIS ELITE DUCKS THE KICK AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES! ELITE GOES FOR A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS….BUT DARYL ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME, AND AT THE SAME TIME CHRIS NOTICES AND LANDS ON HIS FEET! Kinkade is quick though as he immediately gets back onto his feet and charges FOR A STEP-UP ENZIGURI! IT CONNECTS AS ELITE IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS, DARYL GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD…..IS HE GOING FOR AN EARLY BEAUTIFUL LIE?! NO! IT DOESN’T CONNECT AS ELITE FRANTICALLY PUNCHES AND KNEES THE TOP OF DARYL’S HEAD…..dropping down onto the mat…..AND THERE’S ELITE WITH THE BOX OFFICE SMASH! WOAH!
Kawajai: NOPE! DARYL DODGES THE SUPERKICK BARELY, ROLLING OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME! WOW! WHAT A CLINIC THAT WAS RIGHT THERE! The fans are absolutely loving this as they applaud the display of wrestling ability that was shown, and Chris looks genuinely surprised at how Daryl managed to keep up, as Everybody’s Favorite Underdog gives the World Champion a cheeky grin! We’re all getting the message from him tonight: This is a new Daryl Kinkade, one who is ready for the big break he has been wanting since the beginning! Daryl now on his feet along with Chris Elite…..AND THEY CHARGE TOWARDS EACH OTHER ONCE MORE! DARYL GOES FOR A LARIAT BUT CHRIS DUCKS IT! HE TURNS AROUND – TO MEET THE BOOT OF THE WORLD CHAMPION! PELE KICK CONNECTS! Chris saves himself with the Pele Kick as Daryl is stunned and groggy in the ring, now grabbing his opponent FOR A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX THAT SENDS DARYL FLYING ACROSS THE RING! The underrated strength of Chris in play as you can see Big Mike and POP cheering him on, and now Elite is the one who is standing tall, walking backwards into his corner. HE TAGS IN THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, POP, AND I THINK WE MIGHT SEE A PREVIEW OF WHAT MIGHT COME IN THE FUTURE! POP slowly walks towards Daryl…..BUT DARYL ESCAPES!
Nick Angel: HE TAGS IN REX MCALLISTER! The two men now staring each other down from their respective corners, each waiting for a chance to strike…..AND IT MIGHT BE PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL FIRST AS HE RUNS TOWARDS REX WITH A RIGHT HAND THAT STRIKES HIM ACROSS THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! NOW POP GOES IN WITH CLUBBING BLOWS TO THE BACK! Prince of Phenomenal taking the World Heavyweight challenger by surprise as he wails onto him with kicks, punches, and elbows to Rex’s arms, head, and back! Rex tries to fight back with a forearm of his own but POP ducks it and twists the arm of Rex, lifting him up…..FOR A HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! OUCH! POP drops Rex right onto his back with his arm right behind him, causing damage to both areas of his anatomy! Rex shoots up from the pain, grabbing his arm as you can see Daryl, exhausted, but still worried for his tag team partner tonight! POP rebounds off the ropes, coming back WITH A BRUTAL PENALTY KICK ACROSS THE CHEST OF MCALLISTER, AS HE DROPS DOWN AND IS OUT! AND PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL GRABS THE LEG FOR THE COVER, WILL THIS BE IT?
Kawajai: NO! REX KICKS OUT! He’s not going down that easily my friend, and as much as he can hope for it, POP knows that he’ll have to do more to put down one of the most prominent and proficient performers this company has had in a long time! Prince of Phenomenal wiping the sweat off him, planning his next move as Elite and Big Mike look on in the background……POP assesses the situation as he NOW BRUTALLY STOMPS ON REX! CONTINUING WITH VICIOUS STOMPS TO HIS CHEST, UNRELENTING IN HIS PURSUIT OF VICTORY! POP steps out onto the apron, walking outside grabbing the top rope…..AND HE SPRINGS OVER FOR A SOMERSAULT SENTON RIGHT ONTO HIS STERNUM! DAMN! Prince of Phenomenal is bringing Rex to town tonight, he cannot catch a break and is breaking him down slowly but surely! And there goes POP, getting in the face of his future opponent Daryl Kinkade, trash talking between each other! Prince of Phenomenal steps out onto the ropes once more…..AND BEGINS TO CLIMB THE TURNBUCKLE! HE MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR THE END HERE, MAYBE GOING FOR THE CHAPTER SIX?! HE’S UP TOP! HERE COMES THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION – WAIT?! HE FLIES OFF AND FALLS ONTO THE MAT? OH! DARYL JUST PUSHED POP OFF THE TOP AND SENT HIM FLYING DOWN TO THE MAT! WOAH!
Nick Angel: KINKADE MAY HAVE SAVED HIS PARTNER THERE, AS THE REFEREE SCOLDS HIM BUT HE DOESN’T CARE! Daryl was smart in his attack as he pushes the National Elite Champion off, but Elite and Big Mike don’t look too pleased! POP rises to his feet and realizes that Daryl prevented him from ending the match-up, turning….AND HE CHARGES TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT! BUT WAIT! REX MCALLISTER FROM BEHIND WITH AN OLYMPIC SLAM! LIFTING POP OFF THE GROUND AND BRINGING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A MASSIVE OLYMPIC SLAM PROVIDING HIM SOME BREATHING ROOM THERE! Rex now uses the ropes as leverage to try and get back up onto his feet……AND HE IS UP, LOOKING TOWARDS THE POP WHO IS TRYING TO REGAIN HIS BEARINGS! HERE COMES REX! OHH!! JUMPING HIGH KNEE RIGHT INTO POP’S JAW! JESUS, I COULD HEAR THE SOUND OF THAT FROM A MILE AWAY! POP is barely standing on his own two feet as you can see that Rex has the blood pumping through his veins, he is breathing heavy but is using his power to take down the champions! He turns to face his tag partner, Daryl, looking to tag him in – BUT WAIT! CHRIS ELITE PULLS DARYL DOWN FROM THE APRON AS HIS FACE SMASHES AGAINST THE HARDEST PART OF THE MAT! DAMN!
Kawajai: CHRIS PREVENTS REX FROM TAGGING HIS PARTNER IN! AN EYE FOR AN EYE I SUPPOSE! Elite gives Rex a devilish smile as McAllister is furious, STEPPING OUT ONTO RINGSIDE AND CHARGES AT CHRIS WITH A FOREARM! AND NOW THESE TWO ARE GOING AT IT! CHAMPION AND CHALLENGER BRAWLING IT OUT AT RINGSIDE, ALMOST RIGHT NEXT TO US! CHRIS WITH A RIGHT HAND! NOW REX WITH A RIGHT! These two going back and forth with these strikes, BUT ELITE BREAKS IT WITH A SHOOT KICK TO REX’ CHEST! He offers himself some leeway there…..ENOUGH FOR POP TO LEAP OVER THE TOP ROPE! WOAHH! HE DROPS DOWN ONTO REX WITH A TOPE CON HILO, DROPPING RIGHT ONTO HIS CHEST AS HE DROPS DOWN! WOW! POP takes Rex out of the equation with the Tope Con Hilo, rising to his feet and smiling at McAllister who is holding onto our announce table to try and stand up! POP grabs him by the head and sends him rolling back into the ring as he does the same – BUT OH MY GOD! REX LEAPS UP AND TAGS DARYL WHO RECOVERED FROM ELITE’S ATTACK AND NOW HE IS BACK IN THIS MATCH, CHARGING THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE SENDS POP REELING INTO THE CORNER!
Nick Angel: Chris is trying his best to make do with the situation as he attempts to grab Daryl in the ring from the apron! BUT DARYL ESCAPES AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! OH MY GOD! SUICIDE SPEAR BY DARYL KINKADE TO CHRIS ON THE OUTSIDE, SENDING THE BOTH OF THEM TUMBLING DOWN NEAR THE BARRICADES BELOW! KINKADE IS ON FIRE, HE JUST TOOK OUT ELITE AND IS READY TO TAKE OUT A DAZED PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL IN THE CORNER! He slides back into the ring and points a gun sign towards POP, ready to strike! AFTER MIDNIGHT! THE SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS ONTO POP, DAZING HIM WITH A LOUD KNEE STRIKE TO HIS JAW ONCE MORE! POP drops down onto the mat as the camera now pans to see Rex who has recovered from his attacker, now looking at the downed Chris Elite….what is he planning here? He lifts Chris by his head, looking towards our announce table and then to Chris…..oh no. Don’t do this, Rex! HE MIGHT KILL HIM WITH – OH MYY GODD! REX MCALLISTER JUMPS ONTO OUR ANNOUNCER TABLE AND DRIVES ELITE’S HEAD DOWN WITH A REX EFFECT ON THE OUTSIDE! HOLY SHIT, CHRIS LOOKS ABSOLUTELY DEAD FROM THAT! HE’S LIFELESS ON THE MAT OUTSIDE! REX LOOKS SATISFIED AS YOU CAN SEE CHRIS’ HEAD IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN FROM ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL REX EFFECTS I’VE SEEN IN A LONG WHILE!
Kawajai: Now moving back to the ring we see that Daryl is smiling at Rex for taking out Chris…..BUT WHAT HE DOESN’T REALIZE IS POP BEHIND HIM ROLLING HIM UP WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN! NO! KINKADE KICKS OUT BEFORE THE REF CAN EVEN MAKE ONE COUNT! The two men roll back onto their feet once more, AND DARYL FIRES OFF WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! IT’S DUCKED! POP RETALIATES WITH A FOREARM SHOT THAT ROCKS KINKADE’S CHEEK! THEN ANOTHER! A THIRD! POP with these rapid-fire forearm shots to take down Daryl……BUT KINKADE DUCKS ONE AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES FOR THE DKO! THE DKO! NO! POP GRABS HIM IN MID-AIR WITH A CRADLE PIN! HIS SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Nick Angel: REX TRIES TO GO IN FOR THE SAVE BUT IT’S TOO LATE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray blasts through the loudspeakers as POP rolls out of the ring, raising his arms up in victory as Daryl has his hands in his head, completely blindsided by what just took place. Chris is being helped up by Big Mike, his head still bleeding as both Rex and Daryl are in disbelief.)
Bella Braxton: AND HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS…….CHRIS ELITE, AND PRINCE! OF! PHENOMMEENNAALLLL!!!!!!
Nick Angel: DAMN! POP MANAGES TO BARELY GRAZE BY WITH A SNEAK VICTORY TONIGHT AS HE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF DARYL, GRABBING HIM IN MID-AIR AND PINNING HIM WITH A CRADLE PIN! WOW! That was utterly and completely crazy!
Kawajai: Agreed, Nick! This was a main event that could have gone either way to be completely honest, but tonight it was thanks to the Champion’s resourcefulness that they managed to overcome the odds and gain the momentum needed heading into Crossfire! But we know that the champions and challengers were evenly matched, POP only barely surviving, and Rex absolutely brutalizing Chris with a Rex Effect on the outside! Brutal!
Nick Angel: A solid main event with deadly signs of what is to come for each of these men.
(POP makes his way down the ramp alongside Chris Elite & Big Mike as he taunts Rex & Daryl who look on in disappointment from the ring as the camera fades to black)
