( SCREEN BAR – “Earlier Today” )
(Voltage Co-Commissioner, Matt Daniels, is seen arriving at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey earlier in the day. The Hall of Famer wears a pair of Armani dress slacks, a button down baby blue and white plaid shirt, and expensive black leather dress shoes. He looks like a snack. However, there is a troubled expression across his handsome face because as he steps out of his car, he is greeted by dozens of protesters who have surrounded every area of the building. These protesters are mostly middle-aged moms, with the ‘I need to speak to your manager’ haircut, but there’s a church van pulled up to the back entrance, blocking it from being accessed. Members of the Newark chapter of the Worldwide Church of God have swarmed the area as well, handing out Bibles in their conservative Christian clothing.)
(These moms and Christians all have one thing in common though, and that’s the fact they’re all carrying signs. Signs that read ‘#CancelVoltage’, ‘God Doesn’t Like Violence’, ‘Elitists Are Going To Hell’, ‘Fire CC and Veena’, ‘BAN BLOODSPORT’, among others are being waved in the air as all these people chant the same thing, “CANCEL VOLTAGE! CANCEL VOLTAGE!”)
Matt Daniels (muttering): You’ve got to be kidding me.
(Matt looks around, unsure of where he needs to go to get inside the building. He is unaware of two figures dressed in business casual clothing approaching him.)
???: Excuse me, Captain Charisma?
(Matt turns around and notices the two men, but he doesn’t recognize either of them.)
Matt Daniels: Can I help you gentlemen?
???: My name is Eric Harvey, and this is Jason Williams. We’re with Mattel.
(Matt can’t help himself. He practically rolls his eyes to the back of his head.)
Eric Harvey: As you know, Mattel and EAW have a long standing working relationship, and image is everything to us as a brand. Our two companies are synonymous with one another, but lately it seems like this company, and more particularly Voltage, is getting away from being ‘Elite’.
Jason Williams: We caught some of the event you dubbed as ‘Bloodsport’, and while Mattel agrees that there have been other low points in EAW history, certain matches and whatnot, we all agree that an event such as Bloodsport should have never been allowed to take place.
(Matt pinches the bridge of his nose and briefly closes his eyes.)
Matt Daniels: I’m sure that the EAW Board of Directors would be more than happy to have this conversation with you. Any questions or concerns Mattel might have can be directed to them. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get inside.
(Eric and Jason exchange smirks and it’s Eric who gestures towards the protesters.)
Eric Harvey: I wish you all the best in trying to get inside, Captain Charisma. It seems like several people and organizations are unhappy with Bloodsport and the ugly side of this sport that was showcased thanks to the lack of rules and structure. Tell me, how many injuries were sustained at Bloodsport, and how many Elitists aren’t cleared for competition here tonight?
Matt Daniels: We will be providing updates on everyone during the show tonight. I expect everyone left on the Voltage roster to be medically cleared and back in action next week. Now, if you’ll excuse me…
(Matt brushes past the Mattel executives and begins making his way towards the building. As soon as he’s spotted by the protesters, their shouts and chants became louder and angrier. No one physically puts their hands on the Co-Commissioner, but he is verbally berated at every turn. Matt does finally make it into the building and once he shuts the door behind him, he heaves a huge sigh of relief.)
(EAW Intro Plays.)
(Speaking of Bloodsport, the show officially opens with a highlight video depicting every single stabbing, foreign object use, Piranha tank, and whatever else you can possibly think of. Andrea Valentine is seen defending the Specialists Championship once again in a match that will forever go down in the history books as one of the goriest, most violent matches in EAW history. Showdown’s ‘New Breed Stallion’ Felix Hartley is seen successfully defending her New Breed Championship against Cepheus St. Claire. EAW Interwire Champion, Terry Chambers, is seen defeating Korey Gaines to cement his title reign. Consuela Rose Ava, with a little assistance from a masked figure, is able to gain some much needed revenge on Jesse Barlow. Rex McAllister and Ms. Extreme fought tooth (literally) and nail (literally) during their 30-Minute Hardcore Ironman Match. Obviously that match would go into overtime with Rex having to dig deep and find another side to himself in order to come out on top. Dr. Bethany Blue and Kai Zolomon would emerge from the ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ Barbed Wire Ladder match as the winners, each of them now holding a briefcase they hope contains something other than a restaurant coupon :D. Raven Roberts would get the biggest win of her career by defeating Theron Nikolas in almost record time. The longest reigning Answers World Champion would leave the ring, and leave his boots on the stage, leaving the audience wondering if they would ever seen Theron again in an EAW ring. As far as the main event goes…well, Charlie Marr would walk out of Boston as the NEW EAW World Champion. However, that match would be surrounded in controversy as both Veena Adams and Jordie Ripley did their part to make sure Malcolm Jones wouldn’t walk away with the belt. After the match ended, MJ would snap and beat the fuck out of Veena, thus resulting in him being fired.)
(The recap video fades out and cuts inside to the sold out Prudential Center. Some of the protesters from earlier in the day have purchased tickets to the show and are waving their ugly signs, but mostly everyone seems excited to be at Voltage! “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami blasts throughout the building and Voltage’s gold and white pyro begins to explode. Once the smoke clears and the lights come up, the camera cuts to the Voltage broadcast duo of James Peters and Rich Russillo. Tonight they’re both wearing #JusticeForMalcolm t-shirts.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Sunday Night Voltage! We are live tonight from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and as my broadcast partner, Rich Russillo, can attest to, it’s already been an eventful day!
Rich Russillo: Man! I didn’t think I was going to be able to get inside the building earlier. There have been dozens of protesters in and out all day, calling for Voltage’s cancellation after everything that transpired last weekend at Bloodsport.
James Peters: Bloodsport is a show that will go down in EAW history for a number of reasons. There has and likely will never be another event like it. Opinions on the show have been split right down the middle; you either hated it or you loved it, and there doesn’t really seem to be a middle ground.
Rich Russillo: One thing’s for certain, every single man and woman who competed at Bloodsport walked to the ring knowing the risk they were taking by competing in a completely unsanctioned event. It was going to be a high risk, high reward type of show and I know that I’ll never forget the things we saw last weekend.
James Peters: The conclusion of Bloodsport is one that has been heavily debated and replayed over and over again, but the fact remains that Malcolm Jones is no longer employed by Elite Answers Wrestling. I think that’s bullshit, but there’s nothing else we can really do except wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
Rich Russillo: And pray that someone steps up to knock Charlie Marr off his pedestal. The fact that this man is now the EAW World Champion makes me sick to my stomach.
James Peters: You and me both, Rich. The future of Voltage doesn’t look so bright with Veena Adams’ right hand man holding the most prestigious world championship in this company.
Rich Russillo: We’re fucked, plain and simple.
James Peters: The only thing we can do is just wait and see what happens, but at least we won’t have to worry about any of that tonight. Charlie Marr, Jordie Ripley, and Veena Adams aren’t here, and we have a great lineup tonight. When we return from break, Serena Riot will be in action against a man named Shawn Sturgis who is making his Voltage debut! So stick around!
Rich Russillo: We’ll be right back!
(Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Various members of the Voltage roster are shown receiving medical attention immediately following Bloodsport. Now that the hospital’s blood bank is running low, it’s extremely important to give blood and help save lives.)
(Voltage backs in and cuts to Bella Braxton, who is standing by.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Rich Russillo: Hello everyone and welcome back! As promised, we’re kicking things off with Serena and the newcomer!
(‘Head Strong’ by Trapt begins to play as Shawn Sturgis Jr. makes his way onto the stage.)
James Peters: Rich, this kid may be new on the scene but there’s no denying his pure potential.
Rich Russillo: I agree James, but is that raw talent enough to defeat, even survive the ruthless Serena Riot? We’re gonna know tonight!
(Shawn Sturgis Jr. enters the ring to a mixed reaction from the crowd, all the while keeping a confident grin on his face.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM FONTANA, CALIFORNIAAAAA …WEIGHING IN AT 205 POUNDS… SHAWWNNNNN STURRRRGIS JRRR.!!!
(The crowd once again showing Sturgis Jr. a mixed reaction with “LET’S GO STURGIS” and “BORING” chants throughout the arena.)
(‘We Own The Night’ by The Hollywood Undead plays Serena Riot onto the stage. The crowd are uproarious with boos and chants of “FUCK YOU RIOT, FUCK YOU RIOT”.)
Rich Russillo: I’ve been very impressed with Serena Riot as of late. I have said it before and I will say it again, you may not like her tactics, but you cannot deny her results.
James Peters: As much as I hate to agree with you Rich, you truly cannot deny what Riot bring to the table. She might have come up short at Bloodsport, but she looked amazing in that match and there’s no denying that Riot is one of the rising stars here on Voltage!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT …FROM CLEVELAND OHIOOO…WEIGHING IT AT 150 POUNDS, THE FALLEN PROPHET… SERENAAAA RIOOOOT!!!
(Serena Riot enters the ring focused and ready to fight.)
James Peters: HERE WE GO!!
(DING, DING, DING!)
James Peters: Here we g- OH AND RIOT CHARGES SHAWN WITH A BIG BOOT BUT STURGIS AVOIDS IT! Clearly he’s done his homework on The Fallen Prophet. Now both competitors lock horns, viciously jockeying for position. Now it’s Sturges Jr. who bodies Riot into the corner, that weight advantage already becoming a factor in this bout.
(Sturges uses all of the referee’s five count, then gives Riot a slap in the face!)
Rich Russillo: Oh god..That was not a smart move on Shawn’s part. He may be confident but I don’t think he thought th-OH MY GOD, A WICKED CLOTHESLINE FROM RIOT!! THAT TOOK HIS FUCKING HEAD OFF!! NOW RIOT IMMEDIATELY INTO THE COVER!!
James Peters: KICKOUT!!!!
Rich Russillo: RIOT ALMOST FINISHED HIM EARLY!
James Peters: Sturges now rolling out of the ring, trying to escape Riot for a few seconds. She’s followed him out however.. look at Riot stalking Shawn as he tries to gather himself. Here comes Riot full speed ahead for another clothesline…BUT SHAWN AVOIDS IT AND HITS RIOT WITH A NECKBREAKER ON THE FLOOR!!
Rich Russillo: Jesus Christ you could hear the sound of her neck pounding against the floor all the way over here! Now Shawn not wasting any time heading up to the top rope… Riot trying to collect herself. Oh you know what Shawn is thinking now, HE’S ON THE TOP…MOONSAULT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR, COMPLETELY TOPPLING RIOT!!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
James Peters: I agree with the crowd!!! Holy Shit!!! Shawn realizing now is his chance, he needs to capitalize now! Rolling Riot’s battered body back into the ring, he heads up to the second rope…GOING FOR THAT BIG LEG DROP…HERE HE COMES, RIOT ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AVOIDING WHAT COULD’VE BEEN A BIG WIN FOR STURGES!
Rich Russillo: No matter if Shawn wins or loses in this bout, after this..his ass is gonna feel..well..BEAT!
James Peters: Agreed, but that decision could’ve been disastrous for him, as Riot is starting to show signs of life. She looks absolutely sadistic right now, who knows what she could be planning. Riot now picking up Shawn, SLAP, BACK ELBOW, LEG SWEEP, OFF THE ROPES NOW A SLIDING KNEE STRIKE! WHAT A COMBO FROM RIOT!!
Rich Russillo: WHY ISN’T SHE GOING FOR A PIN? STURGES LOOKS LIFELESS AT THIS POINT!
James Peters: I believe she’s got even more tricks up her sleeve…NOW ITS RIOT WHO’S HEADING TO THE TOP, COULD SHE BE LOOKING FOR THE DEMON DROP?!?! SHE GOES FOR IT, BUT STURGES AVOIDS IT, BUT SHE LANDS ON HER FEET!!!! SHE GOES TO THE WHALE AGAIN WITH A KNEE STRIKE, STURGES AVOIDS IT AND ROLLS HER UP!! WAIT HIS FEET ARE ON THE ROPES….
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT, KICK OUT, KICKOUT, SHE’S STILL IN THIS FIGHT!
James Peters: NOW RIOT BACK UP, SHE GOES FOR AN ENZIGURI…BUT SHE NAILS THE REFEREE!! NOW STURGES ROLLS OUTSIDE AND GRABS A CHAIR, RIOT FOLLOWS BUT SHE GETS NAILED IN THE HEAD WITH A STEEL CHAIR!!
Rich Russillo: THIS IS HIS CHANCE, HE ROLLS RIOT BACK INTO THE RING, HE’S HEADING TO THE TOP…THE LOOK NO HANDS 450 SPLASH HITS PERFECTLY ON RIOT!! THATS GOTTA BE IT..HES INTO THE COVER NOW!!!
Both: KICKOUT! KICKOUT! KICKOUT! KICKOUT!
James Peters: RICH HOW THE HELL DID SHE ESCAPE THAT MOVE?!?!?
Rich Russillo: I HAVE NO CLUE JAMES!!!
Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME!
Rich Russillo: Now back up to his feet, being willed by this ecstatic crowd, Sturges picks up the body of Riot..HE GOES FOR A STUNNER, RIOT COUNTERS, SHE THROWS HIM AGAINST THE ROPES AND HITS HIM WITH A NASTYU KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!!
James Peters: THE HUMAN JAW ISN’T MADE TO WITHSTAND MOVES LIKE THAT!! NOW RIOT WASTING NO TIME BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES HITS WICKED WAYS! WICKED WAYS! WICKED FUCKING WAYS FROM RIOT!! STURGES HEAD STOMPED INTO THE MAT AND HE IS DONE!!!
Rich Russillo: SHE ISN’T DONE WITH HIM JUST YET, SHE GOES UP TO THE TOP ROPE, SHE IS LOOKING TO FLY …THE DEMON DROP CONNECTS THIS TIME STRAIGHT ONTO THE BODY OF SHAWN!!! WAIT, WHY ISN’T SHE GOING FOR THE COVER?!?!? SHE’S HEADING UP TO THE OTHER CORNER NOW!!! ANOTHER DEMON DROP!!! CRUSHING THE RIBS OF THE SHAWN STURGES JR!!! SHE’S INTO THE COVER NOW!!…
(DING, DING, DING!)
Bella Braxton HERE IS YOUR WINNER, SERENAAAA RIOOOOTT!!!
James Peters: What a hell of a match, better yet, what a hell of a fight! Both of these competitors gave it their all and both have bright futures ahead!
Rich Russillo: Serena gets a nice win here tonight, and even in defeat, the newcomer Shawn Sturgis looked impressive! I look forward to seeing what he can do here on Voltage.
(The camera grabs another look at Serena, who’s smirking down at Sturgis, with her hand raised in victory.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Coca Cola. When two coffees aren’t enough and you need more caffeine, grab a refreshing, icy cold Coke.)
(Voltage returns and fades into a video package highlighting the brand new EAW World Champion, Charlie Marr. Charlie, his championship, and Jordie are seen at Disneyland on vacation, celebrating Charlie’s incredible victory from Bloodsport because after winning the biggest prize in all of professional wrestling, it’s only appropriate to celebrate with a vacation to one of the happiest places on Earth! Charlie and Jordie are first shown sharing a celebratory dinner at the Napa Rose restaurant. The EAW World Championship is sitting on the table while the couple enjoy California wine and elegant dining.)
Charlie Marr (O.S.): I did it. I fucking did it. This boy from Tower Hamlets, London is your new EAW World Champion. I came from nothing and now I have it all.
(Charlie is seen wearing the EAW World Championship while putting Mickey Mouse in a headlock. Several more pictures flash by showing Charlie, Jordie, and the EAW World Championship with other beloved Disney characters and having the time of their lives.)
Charlie Marr (O.S.): Veena and myself pulled off the biggest heist in EAW history, and because of our plan, the EAW World Championship is now in my hands. For weeks the two of us plotted and planned, and it could not have gone any better at Bloodsport. Malcolm snapping and getting himself fired was just the icing on the cake. I suckered that fool in with my constant changing emotions, and lulled him into a false sense of security, knowing damn well he was going to step into the match at Bloodsport and underestimate me. That’s the thing about ‘Main Event Marr’, though. Wins and losses don’t really concern me at the end of the day, because I know that when push comes to shove and what I want is on the line, I’m going to rise up and seize the moment. I have no vulnerability and I don’t have those kinds of emotions. I’m a stone cold killer inside that ring, and I’m never letting this championship go.
(Charlie and Jordie are shown on the ‘It’s A Small World’ ride, with the championship sat in Charlie’s lap. Jordie is clinging to his arm and whispering in his ear, and Charlie looks to be on top of the world, and more happier than he’s ever been before.)
Charlie Marr (O.S.): The landscape of Voltage has changed for the better and there’s not a single thing anyone can do about it. No one is as strong and as powerful as myself and Veena. Matt Daniels and his constant incompetence will finally be rectified, and no matter what situations pop up in the future, Veena and I will be one step ahead. People can say whatever they want about the manner in which I won, and I don’t give a fuck. I don’t care about the manner my victory came about. At the end of the day, I am the World fucking Champion. The way that came about is irrelevant. When we look back years from now, the only thing that is going to be remembered is how historic my reign was and you will all revel in the greatness of that. I deserve this world championship and I will not let anyone tell me any different. I worked my arse off to get to this point. I had to deal with trials and tribulations to make it to the top. This shit wasn’t easy and I will not let anyone take this glory away from me. This title draped over my shoulder displays the fact that I am the top dog here. It’s time to respect that fact.
(Charlie is seen relaxing poolside at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. The EAW World Championship is around his waist and Jordie is behind him, massaging his shoulders.)
Charlie Marr: I plan on rubbing my success in every one of your faces. I am here to rub my success in every one of your faces. I am going to make everyone who has ever wronged me regret it right now. This is my moment and I am going to enjoy it the way I see fit.
(Charlie and Jordie are seen riding rides at Disneyland, and just having fun. They pose for pictures with fans, who are clearly in awe over seeing the EAW World Champion in the flesh.)
Charlie Marr: I am dedicating this title win to every single stupid motherfucker that has ever doubted me. This one goes out to all of those dickeaters who claimed I was nothing without Daryl. Look at me now you cunts. I hold the title that every single one of you wants and I fucking love that. No one on Voltage is capable of stopping me. NO ONE. Not Matt Daniels and his bitch boy, Rex McAllister. Not that fat fuck Terry Chambers. Not Gaines, Zolomon, that fake ass mobster Cepheus St. Claire, and whatever other name you wanna add to that list. The Four Whoresman certainly won’t be the ones getting the job done. My agenda hasn’t changed when it comes to Raven Roberts, Andrea Valentine, Consuela Rose Ava, and Ms. Extreme. The Mountrushmore of Slags don’t need to think that daddy has forgotten about them because he hasn’t. All four of you wronged me when you came to my brand without my permission. You do not belong here and I will not fucking stop until I remove you. I am going to cleanse Voltage. We need to remove the cancers that are killing this brand… my brand since I am the reigning EAW World Champion and UNDISPUTED Face of Voltage. We achieved that with Malcolm and you cunts are next. You do not deserve to be on the same brand as Charlie Marr. You haven’t earned that right. I will keep attempting to remove you all until you learn your fucking place. Get the fuck off my brand before I force you. It is going to be a massacre when I come face to face with you four. It’s going to be like your periods have all synchronized the way the blood is going to be flowing. I am a stone cold killer and I don’t give a fuck period.
(Charlie and Jordie are seen away from Disneyland this time, and taking in some of the other sites in the area. They head to Napa Valley and enjoy wine tasting and grape stomping, and they even make a bottle of their own wine, labeling it ‘8102019’, the date of Charlie’s championship victory.)
Charlie Marr: I am the top dog, and not just on Voltage. I am the ruler of this whole fucking company. Mr. DEDEDE is a bitch and I’ve beaten him already. Impact is a bitch and I’ve beaten him already. Kassidy Heart is a fucking bitch and a sex toy and she’s not a real world champion. I am the one true world champion and I should be respected as such. This Championship is the original World Championship, those other titles are just rip offs of this one. I hold the original World Championship and I am the superior champion. I am the most important Elitist that currently resides in EAW. I am immortal. Whenever you think I am beaten, I simply come back stronger. I am the God Emperor, fuck you Theron Nikolas, you retired ass bitch. I am unfuckwitable, fuck you Sienna Jade. I am the GOAT, fuck you Ahren Fournier. I am the Hardcore King, fuck you Darkane. While all of those are just cute little nicknames for you guys, I live every single one of them. Most importantly, I am Main Event Marr and I run this company. Next week, we celebrate that as I take the throne on MY brand.
(The video package concludes with Charlie and Jordie, back at Disneyland, standing in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Jordie is on her tiptoes, kissing the champion, while Charlie holds his championship up in the air. Fireworks explode all around them as the scene fades to black.)
(Voltage fades back to the broadcast booth, where Rich and James are just looking at one another. Neither of them seem to want to accept the fact that Charlie Marr is their new champion.)
James Peters: Well it seems like our brand new champion is having the time of his life right now.
Rich Russillo: Can’t WAIT to see what Charlie has in store for us when he returns to Voltage next week 😐
James Peters: Well to follow that up, I do have some good news. As everyone knows by now, several Elitists sustained injuries last weekend and could not get clearance to wrestle this week. Earlier today, the EAW Medical Staff provided us with some updates on the Elitists that were not able to compete this week. Rex McAllister and Ms. Extreme, both who suffered multiple injuries in their hellacious 30-Minute Hardcore Ironman match that actually went 45 minutes, were cleared late Friday night to return to competition. We’re being told that both of them will be in action next week!
Rich Russillo: The ending of that match is something I can’t get out of my head, James. I will never forget seeing Rex take that screwdriver to Ms. Extreme…
(James visibly shudders.)
James Peters: Korey Gaines was released from Massachusetts General Hospital on Tuesday morning, and cleared to return to action. He suffered a minor rib injury but is ready to go.
Rich Russillo: The status of Katheryn Wicked following Bloodsport is up in the air. From what we know, she’s been returned to the Hartford Institute of the Mentally Insane and well, it’s also not know if she is Katheryn or Kalista at the moment. The fact remains, Katheryn Wicked is not here this week and we’re unsure on when we might see her again. As far as the Specialists Champion, Andrea Valentine, goes, she has also been cleared to return to action. Andrea had several superficial injuries and a concussion, but she’s promised to be on Voltage next week. That woman is as tough as they come and has been through some hellacious matches here in EAW.
James Peters: Andrea never ceases to amaze me, and I’m beyond thrilled that she’ll be with us next week.
Rich Russillo: One of the most interesting things to happen at Bloodsport was the masked individual who showed up during the ‘Fans Bring The Weapons’ match. Jesse Barlow was taken out, which allowed Consuela Rose Ava to pick up the victory during their grudge match. Now rumors have been swirling that Cepheus St. Claire was the orchestrator behind that attack, but that’s neither here nor there.
James Peters: Jesse suffered a concussion as a result of that attack, but has informed Captain Charisma that he will be back next week whether he’s cleared or not. Jesse seems pretty pissed off about how his match ended with Consuela, and he wants to get to the bottom of what happened to him at Bloodsport.
Rich Russillo: Unfortunately, one person who’s not been cleared to return is Big Paul Joshua. While he’s not dead in the traditional sense, he died in a lot of ways at Bloodsport. I don’t think we will ever see him again.
James Peters: :wow: RIP Big Guy.
(“Breakin’ Outta Hell” by Airbourne plays, which signals that the next match is about to get underway.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(Shortfuse PAKA comes out the stage. He looks angry but is still confident as he walks to the ring.)
Rich Russillo: PAKA isn’t the happiest of people. Although he gave Woogieman what he intended to do in his match at Bloodsport he still didn’t come out on top in his Ultimate Opportunity match.
James Peters: I wouldn’t count him out just yet. He still has a lot of motivation on his plate and what better to feel that then facing Consuela Rose Ava. He did call her a worthy opponent, we’ll see how this pans out for him.
(PAKA enters the ring and raises 2 arms up in the air as the crowd cheers for him and “Breakin’ Outta Hell” fades out. “We Appreciate Power” by Grimes then plays to a loud pop as Consuela Rose Ava comes out to the stage. She looks much more pleased compared to the last few weeks as she makes her way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, residing in Los Angeles California, weighing in at 120 pounds…THE PERFECTIONIST, CONSUELA…ROSE…AVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: At Bloodsport last week Consuela got rid of the nuisance that was Jesse Barlow and she has a little skip in her step.
James Peters: Well now she has to focus her attention on PAKA tonight because she said if PAKA wants a fight he’ll get a fight and surely neither of these competitors want less than that.
(Consuela enters the ring and goes to the top rope and raises one arm in the air before hopping down and getting settled as “We Appreciate Power” fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this match is underway. Both competitors slowly confronting each other in the middle of the ring right now. They lock up!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“We Appreciate Power” plays as Consuela Rose Ava gets up in victory and gets her hand raised by the Ref. She’s help to the outside as PAKA is still out cold.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here’s your winner, CONSUELA ROSE AVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: :wow: Consuela did it! To be fair I thought with the size advantage I thought PAKA would get the best out of Consuela.
James Peters: But she didn’t give up and got the win right?!? Yeah, just the pure fact that PAKA could push Consuela to her limit says a lot.
(Consuela looks into the ring, as the referee has gotten PAKA up and into a sitting position. The two competitors lock eyes and give each other a nod of respect. Consuela turns around and heads to the back as PAKA shoves the referee off and rolls out of the ring. Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Cox Internet starting at $19.99 a month.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break and cuts to the backstage area. Dr. Bethany Blue is seen walking down the hallway from one direction, while her opponent for tonight and fellow ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ winner, Kai Zolomon, is seen walking into the scene from the other direction. Both of them come to a stop in front of Matt Daniels’ office. Each member of tonight’s main event carries their respective briefcase, and it’s Dr. Bethany Blue who cracks the first smile.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Kai Zolomon, what a lovely surprise! I had a feeling I would be running into you as soon as I got word that Matt Daniels wanted to see me and discuss what was inside this briefcase. How are you? You’re looking rather pale today, and tired, which is no doubt part of the wear and tear you are taking by unrealistically flying overseas between matches each week. Did you know that the more you fly, the more you expose yourself to airborne illnesses as well as diseases that can spread by contact? You have to assume that every surface you touch, or every object that you touch has been handled by someone who is walking around sick.
Kai Zolomon: Would you please just shut the fuck up?
(A flash of pure anger crosses Dr. Bethany Blue’s face before it immediately disappears and her professional demeanor snaps back into place.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Now Kai, I understand why you might not want to listen. People just don’t care what their doctors have to say and that’s unfortunate because I truly want what’s best for you and the rest of the Voltage roster. That’s why I do what I do, and why I got into the medical field in the first place. All it takes is one AIDs patient with a cut on their hand to touch a piece of produce in Whole Foods, and for that contaminated piece of produce to be purchased by a mom of three, who thinks she is doing the right thing by buying all these fresh, healthy ingredients for her family. She fixes grilled chicken, broccoli, and salad for her family’s dinner and because she decides to skip washing the produce to save time, assuming that Whole Foods did that, or that it wasn’t previously touched by someone who is sick, she unintentionally infects her whole family with HIV. Her lack of education on the dangers of diseases that are spread so easily and effortlessly has now cost her her family’s health, safety, and peace of mind. They’re going to die now thanks to her negligence. I don’t want that to happen to anyone here on Voltage, because I care, Kai. I care so much and I just want every single man and woman here in EAW to be the healthiest and best versions of themselves.
(Dr. Blue flashes Kai the most compelling smile, but the Kai looks at her with absolute disdain.)
Kai Zolomon: I don’t think you have any idea of how delusional you actually sound. I hope when all is said and done tonight, after I beat some sense into you, you wake the fuck up and realize that no one is buying your little doctor act, Et-
(Dr. Blue quickly jams her briefcase underneath Kai’s chin and drives him back into the wall. She gets right into his face, her baby brown eyes narrowed into angry little slits.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: If I were you Mr. Zolomon, I would bite my tongue before I cut it off for you and add it to the collection of parts I’m collecting for my own little human experiment. You see, I’m in the process of creating the PERFECT person, and a silver tongued devil like yourself might have something I need. I don’t know yet because we haven’t fully met one another inside the ring. But later on to-
(Dr. Blue is rudely cut off by Kai, who drives his knee into her gut, and snatches her by the hair.)
Kai Zolomon: And if I were you, I would open my eyes and realize just who the fuck you’re speaking too. I’m not someone you want to play around with, and tonight I’m going to make that perfectly clear.
(Kai tosses Dr. Blue to the ground and that’s when the door to Matt’s office opens. The Co-Commissioner steps out and sees Bethany in the process of picking herself up. Matt’s eyes narrow and he clears his throat.)
Matt Daniels: Right. So I summoned you both to my office because I wanted to discuss the contents of your briefcases with you.
Kai Zolomon: Let me just stop you right there for a second, Matt. I’ll be honest. I have lost a lot of faith in how you’ve been handling Voltage as of late, and it wouldn’t shock me one iota to open this thing up and find some kind of coupon for a shitty middle class restaurant that serves never ending salad and breadsticks. I refuse to even say their name because I’m not giving them any more publicity than they’ve already gotten. That stunt Showdown pulled was bullshit, and if you try something like that with me, it will be the biggest mistake you have ever made.
(Matt goes to reply, but Dr. Blue quickly jumps in.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: I actually agree with Kai on this. I refuse to accept some coupon as payment for the hard work I did at Bloodsport. I risked my well-being and put others in jeopardy while competing for this prize, whatever it may be. That is not something I take lightly or enjoy doing, not to mention that the vast majority of restaurants these days are not health conscience. Of course most claim to have heart healthy options, but are the chefs who prepare these meals changing the oil? Are they cleaning the surfaces and utensils before preparing fresh food for the small percentage of people who actually want to stay healthy and live well into their nineties? I don’t really think they are and I’m not about to sit my perfect body down inside of a disgusting, mediocre establishment such as Ol-
Kai Zolomon: DON’T! They don’t need anymore publicity!
Matt Daniels: Alright, enough. Just open the damn things.
(Dr. Blue and Kai eye one another before they both clutch their briefcases and finally pop them open. Both of them turn from suspicious to pleasantly surprised in a matter of seconds. Dr. Blue pulls out a small replica of the EAW Interwire Championship. Her eyes light up.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: DOES THIS MEAN TH-
Matt Daniels (quickly cutting her off): Yes. At Territorial Invasion, you have earned yourself an opportunity to face Terry Chambers for the Interwire Championship.
(Dr. Blue lets her case fall to the ground and she hugs the fake championship to her chest. She’s practically glowing over the thought of getting her hands on Terry.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Dear God… this is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me as a doctor and as a professional wrestler. Thank you, Matt! THANK YOU!!!
(Dr. Blue goes to hurry off, but stops and turns back around. Her eyes lock on Kai, and she wags her finger at him.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: I’ll see you later Mr. #BetterBriefcase. Pfff.
(The doctor exits the scene, which leaves Kai standing alone with Matt. Kai lifts his prize out of the briefcase and sets the case on the ground. In his hand is a small replica of the EAW New Breed Championship.)
Matt Daniels: Territorial Invasion is the biggest opportunity for the brands to go to war here in EAW, and one of the things we are going to war for is the New Breed Championship. I know an opportunity to compete for this particular belt slipped through your fingers once before, but now you have a chance to redeem yourself. Felix Hartley has more than proven herself as a hell of a competitor, and I’m sure Dynasty is going to send someone who can match the focus and intensity the two of you have. It’s not going to be an easy match to win at all, but you’re a star in the making. I know you’ll seize the moment and do what needs to be done in order to win that championship, and I wish you all the best. Bring that belt back to Voltage.
(Kai doesn’t reply. Instead he looks down at the replica title, his mind drifting back to when Cepheus St. Claire stole the New Breed Championship contendership from him. After a moment, Kai looks up and stares at Matt before slowly nodding his head. No other words are said as the scene fades out.)
(It reopens to another part of the backstage area. The Woogieman, who gains a massive pop, is seen in a familiar predicament like someone a few months ago in a photoshoot for PETA. Woogieman is wearing, not a suit but instead his wrestling gear as he’s surrounded by a tank of piranhas. The person snapping the pictures look scared out of their mind as the camera lands on the PETA shirt he’s wearing as he snaps the photos. Woogieman then pauses and asks the person a question.)
The Woogieman: Are you sure this is safe?
Photographer: Perfectly safe.
The Woogieman: Well you are the expert and this is for a good cause.
(Suddenly the piranhas start jumping out of the tank which startles Woogie, reminding himself of Bloodsport and what PAKA did to him)
The Woogieman: Can we please take 5?
(Woogieman carefully walks away avoiding the piranhas as he sits down in a chair. As he turns to sit on it it shows the many scars that he has from Bloodsport. The photographer shakingly gives Woogieman a fish tank with piranhas in it as Woogieman is alarmed)
The Woogieman: W-Why ar-are you giving me t-t-these?!?!
Photographer (Off-Screen): Figured if you get to know them, maybe you would have less of a fear of them.
The Woogieman: Whatever… I hear animals are great emotional pets right?
Piranhas: CHOMP! CHOMP!
The Woogieman: So inspirational. I have a problem. This big man named PAKA broke me in half and I’m recovering. I’m not finished with him. But I need your help to tell me what I should do for revenge. I need my swagger back. And revenge is the best way. I was thinking maybe I throw you guys at him for revenge.
(The piranhas jump viciously around, and the PETA representatives who are watching the photoshoot seem happy to see the little animals being taken care of, instead of used for violence.)
The Woogieman: Ok. We’ll talk about this later. Just know that I’m not done with him yet. I won’t be till he gets what he deserves. I’m more worried about being the spokesperson for PETA.
(Clapping is heard as obvious the people are honored that Woogieman is the new PETA spokesperson.)
The Woogieman: Thank you. Thank you for the opportunity. I thought since these viciou- nice piranhas were forced to attack me by a criminal, why not befriend them?
(The piranhas calm down as they listen to Woogieman speak. The PETA reps all seem touched, and it doesn’t even dawn on them that Woogie might have something malicious on his mind.)
The Woogieman: Even without you guys, I’d probably teach that man a lesson. In the end I’ll still have my pride. And this PETA sponsorship. You guys will help me right?
Piranhas: CHOMP! CHOMP!
The Woogieman: Thank you I am truly blessed.
Photographer (Off-Screen): Woogieman we need you back on set.
The Woogieman: Gotcha.
(Woogieman goes back into the photography area as he looks way more calmer as he holds up the fish tank full of piranhas and smiles.)
The Woogieman (whispering): Fuck you, PAKA.
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Supreme Justice with Judge Karen. Watch as people plead their case on national television in front of Judge Karen Mills-Francis. She’s tough, she’s fair, and she cares.)
(When Voltage returns from break, the camera cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR….
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(“Come Together” by Gary Clark and Junkie XL hits as Frankie Paradise walks down the ramp with swagger and charisma, smiling at the crowd at the ringside. The arena fills with boos but Frankie is unfazed.)
Bella Braxton: “INTRODUCING FIRST, FROM LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA…WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS…HE IS THE KING OF SWIIIIING!!! – FRAAAAAANKIEEEEE PAAARRAAAADDIIISSEEE!!”
Rich Russillo: I like this man, he’s great in the ring, and while I don’t understand some of his, erm, cheap tactics, I feel like he has all the tools to be an all-time great!
James Peters: Exactly, Frankie got the passion and he KNOWS it, he KNOWS he’s better than you, and it’s time the people in the arena know it too. Some may still consider him a rookie, but Frankie has made it to the big leagues here, and that itself should let everyone know, this man is anything BUT a novice.
(Frankie is chilling in the ring as “Mob Ties” by Drake hits as Cepheus St. Claire makes his way cockily down the ring, his manager Lonnie Delmonty following close behind. The arena again fills with boos, but Cepheus does not seem to care. Lonnie is mocking the crowd and waving them off. Cepheus enters the ring and stands across Frankie as Lonnie stands near the steps.)
Bella Braxton: AAND THE CHALLENGER!!! WITH HIS MANAGER LONNIE DELMOTY, FROM SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA!!! WEIGHING IN AT 230 POUNDS….HE’S THE TREACHEROUS ONE!!!….CEEEPHEEEEUUUSSS….ST…CLAIIIRREE!!!
Rich Russillo: Now this here is a man who needs no introduction. He took on Felix Hartley at Bloodsport and, truth be told, impressed me as all hell. Even though he didn’t win the big one, we might as well be looking at the future of Voltage here. If you wanna bet on anyone, it better be St. Claire!
James Peters: No doubt about it Rich, people may be sleeping on this guy, but he’s making his presence felt each and every day. Lonnie and Cepheus are a duo that seem to be a match made in heaven, and not to mention the shady shit that goes on behind the scenes….all this makes Cepheus a man to be feared indeed!
Rich Russillo: Well, time to see if Frankie Paradise can steal this win at what appears to be the biggest opponent in his career so far in EAW!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Cepheus smiling at Frankie, I don’t think Cepheus respects his opponent tonight! Lonnie still by Cepheus shouting at him to do something! Cepheus waving off Frankie… Cepheus leaving the ring! Cepheus is walking away!!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus and Lonnie, maybe the ultimate show of disrespect….JUST WALKING AWAY! GO BACK IN THE RING CEPHEUS! WIN THIS THING!
James Peters: Look out, Frankie jumped down of the ring and is running after Cepheus! Frankie with a lariat to Cepheus’ back! Cepheus down! Frankie going off at Cepheus with those vicious kicks! Lonnie trying to pull Frankie off, BUT FRANKIE GRABS LONNIE AND SLAMS HIM AGAINST THE BARRICADE! LONNIE STUNNED IN PAIN!
Rich Russillo: Watch out!! Cepheus rises up and catches Frankie off guard with an uppercut!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus now grabbing Frankie by his hair and pulling him back into the ring! Cepheus was trying to walk away but now he’s got the upper hand! Both men in the ring and Cepheus going off at Frankie with a pissed look on his face. One hit! Two hit! Three hit! Cepheus is enraged at Frankie’s assault on his manager!
James Peters: Frankie with a block, and a strike of his own! Cepheus groggy, Frankie runs back and going for a running strike, Cepheus ducks! Frankie rebounds of the rope and a RUNNING CROSSBODY ON CEPHEUS!! A PIN!!
James Peters: And Cepheus powers out! Frankie was trying to seal the deal but this match is going to be anything but simple to end. Cepheus may be weakened from his match with Felix last week, but I doubt Frankie is going to defeat him this easily!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus trying to get back to his feet, but Frankie keeping an eye on him like an eagle on its prey. Frankie grabs Cepheus as he’s trying to get up and is trying to go for a STF! CAN FRANKIE LOCK IN THE STF!!? NO! CEPHEUS KICKS FRANKIE AWAY! Cepheus now back up to his feet and Frankie seems to be momentarily knocked back, but that’s all Cepheus needed to capitalize….SUPERKICK! CEPHEUS JUST LANDS A STIFF SUPERKICK ON FRANKIE AND FRANKIE FALLS OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: That might’ve just cut Frankie’s chin! Frankie motionless on the outside as Cepheus slides under the ropes and out of the ring. Cepheus looking at Frankie and laughing!
Cepheus *off mic*: This piece of shit is going to beat me!? ME?!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus slaps the back of Frankie’s head as Frankie trying to collect himself back up, LEAPING ELBOW!! LEAPING BIONIC ELBOW BY FRANKIE AS HE CATCHES CEPHEUS OFF GUARD!! IT’S NOW CEPEHEUS WHO FALLS WITH A BANG!
James Peters: Never underestimate a man like Frankie, the man knows his craft and will punish you for it! Frankie now back in control, Frankie grabs Cepheus by his head and pushed him back into the ring, Frankie follows soon after and is now looking to end it here. Frankie measuring Cepheus up for the El Paradiso! NO! Cepheus with a Pele kick!! How?! HOW DID HE PULL THAT OFF?!
Rich Russillo: No idea, but Cepheus is a master at ring-awareness, he’s taken on some of EAW’s GOATS such as TLA, Rex and Felix. Cepheus is no easy picking! Cepheus looking surprised at his own ability to use that maneuver, he’s now looking to punish Frankie! He lifts Frankie up, irish whip! Frankie hits the corner turnbuckle with a thud as Cepheus is going for a running strike! Cepheus leaps into the air!
James Peters: FRANKIE DODGES IT! FRANKIE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND CEPHEUS READJUSTS HIS LEAP! BUT NO! FRANKIE CATCHES CEPHEUS MID AIR! FRANKIE NOW HAS CEPHEUS IN POWERBOMB POSITION, FRANKIE ABOUT TO HIT!!!, NO!! CEPHEUS FLIPS FRANKIE OVER INTO HURRICARANA AND GOES FOR A PIN!! CEPHEUS WITH A PIN!!
Rich Russillo: FRANKIE KI—NO!! FRANKIE REVERSES IT INTO HIS OWN PIN!!
James Peters: AND A KICKOUT BY CEPHEUS!! Wait, Frankie is not done yet, Frankie getting off the pinning position and lifts Cepheus by his knees, STF!! STF WITH A BRIDGE!! Frankie just keeps surprising us!
Rich Russillo: Frankie Paradise is here for one thing, well, a few things. A victory, money and success. And Frankie has done nothing but try his damndest to show us all three here tonight. A win here will mean EVERYTHING for this young man.
James Peters: All that is fine and dandy, but let’s see if he can make Cepheus tap out or not! Referee checking on Cepheus! Frankie seems to be holding the lock in tightly, not going to let him go this easily! Cepheus could be in a lot of trouble right now as his spine and head is being pulled back, this could spell disaster for a still-injured Cepheus right off his Bloodsport match!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus with a look of horror on his face as he is trying hard, with every last drop of energy to crawl to the ropes, Cepheus might just tap, but he knows he can’t. Cepheus’ eyes say it all, he might just have to submit!! Cepheus dragging his body with the 230 pound Frankie on his back to reach the ropes….Cepheus is almost there!! CEPHEUS ABOUT TO GRAB THE ROPE!!
James Peters: NO!! FRANKIE PULLS CEPHEUS BACK INTO THE CENTER!! FRANKIE HAS THE HOLD LOCKED IN TIGHT! FRANKIE GETTING SOME CHEERS FROM THE CROWD! Cepheus can’t believe it, Cepheus screaming in pain as he raises his hand, about to tap!! NOO!! Frankie let’s go! Why!? WAIT, WHY IS HERE A SHOE IN THE RING!? SOMEONE JUST THREW A SHOE AT FRANKIE AND IT DISTRACTED HIM ENOUGH FOR CEPHEUS TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING!! WHO CAN IT BE?!
Rich Russillo: Well, look at that, Lonnie Delmonty is back up….and he’s missing his right shoe! Lonnie shaking his head denying that he did anything wrong, but he’s missing a shoe, for Godsakes! Lonnie still refusing to admit he did anything! Frankie looks pissed! Frankie is storming out of the ring and about to give chase to Lonnie!
James Peters: Frankie about to run after Lonnie but NO! Cepheus cuts him off with a swinging neckbreaker from the side! Cepheus has just laid out Frankie! Cepheus now dragging Frankie to the center of the ring and admiring his handiwork. Cepheus with a vicious stomp for good measure and Frankie seems to be out of it. Lonnie is back on the apron and shouting at his client to end this! CEPHEUS CLIMBING THE TOP ROPE!! WHAT IS CEPHEUS LOOKING TO DO HERE?! CEPHEUS LOOKING DOWN AT FRANKIE PARADISE IN UTTER DISGUST AND ANGER, FROG SPLASH!! CEPHEUS SOARS IN THE AIR WITH A FROG SPLASH!
Rich Russillo: IT HITS! FRANKIE PARADISE JUST FLATTENED WITH THAT BONE-CRUSHING SPLASH! A PIN BY CEPHEUS!!! :wow:
James Peters: NOOO!!! A KICKOUT!! HOW? FRANKIE IS STILL IN THE GAME! Cepheus looking livid! Lonnie can’t believe it! Cepheus with another pin almost instantly, refusing to believe it was a real kickout and merely a fluke!
Rich Russillo: Wow, another kickout! Cepheus picks Frankie up and slaps him right across the face! Cepheus is shouting at Frankie to stay down….Frankie spits on Cepheus!! THE BALLS ON HIS MAN TO SPIT ON THE TREACHEROUS ONE!! Cepheus lighting up Frankie with lefts and rights, Cepheus is on fire. We’ve only seen this spirit from Cepheus when he was taking on the New Breed Champion! Cepheus with a flurry of strikes, he pauses, a spin and headbutt! Frankie is groggy, Cepheus measuring up Frankie as he’s wobbling around, IRISH WHIP! Cepheus with another Irish whip on Frankie and he’s back against the turnbuckle. CEPHEUS WITH A RUNNING KNEE!!! IT CONNECTS!!! Frankie about to collapse….NO CEPHEUS GRABS FRANKIE AND IRISH WHIPS HIM AGAIN INTO ANOTHER CORNER TURNBUCKLE!! I THINK I KNOW WHAT THIS IS!! CEPHEUS GOING FOR THE FOUR CORNERS OF DISDAIN!!!
James Peters: It connects!! Another running knee! And another Irish whip!! Frankie might be out cold, it’s just physics and the force of Cepheus tossing him that his legs are even moving…..AND THE THIRD KNEE CONNECTS!!! AND THE FINAL FOURTH IRISH WHIP!! Frankie lands with a thud against the cold padding of the turnbuckle…Cepheus with the FINAL JUMPING KNEE!!
Rich Russillo: NOO!! FRANKIE SOMEHOW SLAPS CEPHEUS AWAY MID-AIR!! CEPHEUS SHOCKED! FRANKIE IS STILL IN THIS! FRANKIE WASTING NO TIME, FRANKIE WITH A SCREAM OF RAGE AS HE CHARGES CEPHEUS AND PLANTS HIM WITH A SNAPSHOT!!! THE RUNNING STO TURNS CEPHEUS INSIDE OUT!!! Frankie not done yet! He’s climbing the second rope, WATCH OUT CEPHEUS IS BACK UP!! NO!!! Frankie leaps—- HIGH DEFINITION!!! CEPHEUS JUST GOT HIS BRAIN RATTLED WITH ANOTHER STO FROM THE ROPES!!
James Peters: Frankie now with a smirk on his face as the crowd with a combinations of cheers and boos! Frankie is….he’s gyrating his hips! Oh baby! Frankie might be signaling the end here! Frankie about to set up the Paradise Falls! Cepheus has no idea that a hunk of pure machismo is gyrating his hips behind him, Cepheus getting back up on his feet slowly!! Lonnie is shouting at Cepheus not to turn back, but I don’t think Cepheus is comprehending anything after those series of STOs…..Don’t turn back Cepheus!!
Rich Russillo: PARADISE FALLS CONNECTS !!! A SUPERKICK RIGHT ON THE JAWS OF CEPHEUS, THE SAME JAWS THAT LAST WEEK GOT FILLED WITH THUMBTACKSSSS!!!!!!!!! LONNIE CAN’T BELIEVE IT, LONNIE SPEECHLESS AND SHOCKED! FRANKIE WITH A PIN!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: KICKOU—WAIT, NO!!! CEPHEUS GOT HIS SHOULDERS UP….BUT MERELY MILLISECONDS AFTER THE THREEE!!!
(“Come Together” by Gary Clark and Junkie XL hits as Frankie Paradise keeps gyrating and taking in his unexpected victory as Cepheus is shocked. Lonnie is shaking his head as Frankie winks at both Cepheus and him and begins to exit the ring)
Bella Braxton: LADIES THE GENTLEMEN, THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH!!!! FRAAAAANKIIIIIIIEEEE PARADISEEE!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Wow, just…wow. I knew Frankie had a good chance, but to actually carry through the match and beat Cepheus? This man just might’ve captured the lightning in the bottle so as to speak. This could be history in the making here folks. Frankie survived the treachery of Cepheus and lived to tell the tale, that’s gotta be something right? Hopefully, Cepheus doesn’t have him killed by a hitman…. :lupe:
James Peters: Rich, I’m in the same boat. Frankie did the unthinkable here, and he said it folks, he said he was in this company to make a splash, to win big. And few things are bigger than beating Cepheus! And what a great match by Cepheus, I’m sure had he been a 100% and not injured from his brutal match at Bloodsport, the outcome would’ve been pretty different!
(Frankie Paradise walks up the ramp with a cocky smile as the scene transitions to commercial.)
(Commercial break for Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court. On today’s episode a woman brings her boyfriend and secret lover to court to determine who fathered her son.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts backstage to the catering area. Catering is basically empty, except for Matt who’s on his cellphone and pacing around. The Co-Commissioner has a worried expression on his face. After a few minutes of pacing, he holds the phone away from his ear. Whomever is on the other end of phone is screaming, and Matt doesn’t appear amused.)
Matt Daniels: DEDEDE, listen. I didn’t know Mattel was going to be here tonight. I’m just as shocked as you are right now. Bu-
(The person on the other end of the line is apparently Mr. DEDEDE and he cuts Matt right off. The one-sided conversation continues and finally Matt stops pacing.)
Matt Daniels: Hang on… HANG ON! VEENA DID WHAT?!
(Matt pauses for a second.)
Matt Daniels: NO! We haven’t discussed War Games at all, and she damn sure didn’t tell me she already picked a team to compete and signed the contract for it. You have got to be kidding me!
(Matt is shaking his head.)
Matt Daniels: Of course I don’t have a problem with Raven, Camille, and Andrea representing Voltage at War Games, but you know as well as I do that Veena’s intentions aren’t for them to win that match. She’s setting them up for failure…
(There is another long rant on the other end of the line, and Matt finally sighs.)
Matt Daniels: You know that’s not really necessary sir…
(There is one final pause.)
Matt Daniels (looking defeated): Fine. I will see you and HRDO next week.
(Matt presses end on the phone call and rakes a hand through his golden hair. He looks stressed out and a little disgusted as Voltage fades back to the ringside area.)
(When the scene reopens, Bella is standing front and center in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Mark My Words’ by Doll Skin hits and the crowd explodes as Raven Roberts begins to make her way down to the ring. She clearly seems to be focused on this match as she continues walking down the ramp, allowing Bella Braxton to make her introduction.)
Bella Braxton: MAKING HER WAY TO THE RING… NOW RESIDING IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA… WEIGHING IN AT 148 POUNDS… SHE IS MS. CASH IN THE VAULT… RAAAAVEENNNNN ROOBBBEERRRTTSS!!!!!
James Peters: Raven has been doing great as of late! From winning the Cash in the Vault briefcase, to pinning Jesse Barlow in a huge six man tag, to beating Theron in quick fashion at Bloodsport in what could have been his last ever match!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, she’s been doing great, but tonight she’s got a huge challenge ahead of her, and trust me. I’m not exaggerating when I say the word huge. 6’7, nearly 300 pounds. Raven has her work cut out for her tonight with her opponent.
James Peters: Yeah, you’re right about that, as tonight she faces the Interwire Champion, Terry Chambers!
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons follows and the cheering doesn’t stop as Terry Chambers walks out to the stage. He seems just as focused as Raven as he begins walking down to the ring, with his eyes focused on her as Bella Braxton begins speaking.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT…. FROM DETROIT MICHIGAN…. WEIGHING IN AT 287 POUNDS… HE IS YOUR EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION…. TTERRRYYYYYY CCHHAAAAMMBERSSSS!!!!!!
James Peters: Terry Chambers had a very good Bloodsport night for himself as he did exactly what he said he was gonna do by beating Korey Gaines, even if he didn’t see him as a huge threat! Those two had an awesome match, and I’m sure Terry’s momentum won’t stop there as he faces off against Ms. Cash in the Vault!
Rich Russillo: Terry’s got this. He’s nearly twice the size of Raven, and he’s obviously stronger than her. This is gonna go just like Gaines vs Terry did, with Terry making Raven go to sleep.
James Peters: But Raven isn’t Gaines. She’s more experienced than he is, and you know she’s not Ms. CITV for no reason.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, right. Let’s start this match then.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: AND THIS MATCH IS NOW UNDERWAY! RAVEN ROBERTS AND TERRY CHAMBERS, MS. CASH IN THE VAULT AND THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! THE TWO NOW BEGIN STARING RIGHT AT EACH OTHER- AND RAVEN IS WASTING NO TIME HERE AS SHE GOES RIGHT AFTER TERRY! RAVEN WITH CONSTANT PUNCHES TO TERRY, BUT TERRY IS ABLE TO JUST SHOVE HER STRAIGHT TO THE GROUND! Terry has a clear size and strength advantage over Raven, just like he did against Korey Gaines back at Bloodsport! Terry now grabbing onto Raven, dragging her back to her feet- BUT THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY RAVEN! AND A SECOND! AND A THIRD! TERRY IS DOWN TO ONE KNEE AS RAVEN RUNS THE ROPES!! TALON!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! TERRY JUST NAILED RAVEN WITH A CLOTHESLINE AS SHE BOUNCED OFF OF THE ROPES!! JUST LIKE YOU SAID, TERRY HAS THE SIZE AND STRENGTH ADVANTAGE HERE, AND HE’S MAKING SURE HE DEMONSTRATES THAT HERE TONIGHT!! Terry now dragging Raven up, and now he throws her into the ropes! SPINEBUSTE- NO!! WING BREAKER!! THE WING BREAKER SO EARLY ON IN THIS MATCH, THE KIMURA LOCK IS LOCKED IN ON TERRY DESPITE HIM STILL BEING ON HIS FEET!! RAVEN HAS THE WING BEAKER LOCKED IN TIGHTLY AND IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE SHE HAS ANY INTENTIONS ON LETTING IT GO, BUT TERRY IS ABLE TO PLANT HER ON THE GROUND!!
James Peters: WAIT NO!! IT’S STILL LOCKED IN!! RAVEN HAS THE WING BREAKER STILL LOCKED IN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE TERRY MAY HAVE JUST HELPED HER HERE!! RAVEN IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO KEEP THE WING BREAKER LOCKED IN, AND AT THIS RATE IF TERRY DOESN’T TAP IT MIGHT NOT MATTER, THERE’S NO WAY THAT ARM ISN’T DAMAGED BY NOW!! TERRY THOUGH, HE’S MANAGING TO PICK HER UP, AND HE MANAGES TO RAM MS. CASH IN THE VAULT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! Terry finally managed to free himself from that Kimura Lock, BUT NOW HE’S CHARGING IN!! RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!! WHAT A HUGE START TO THE MATCH, BUT IT JUST MAY BE OVER ALREADY AS TERRY GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN KICKS OUT!! Terry now lifting Raven up, AND HE HAS HER IN THE FIREMAN’S CARRY! I THINK IT’S CLEAR WHAT HE HAS HER SET UP FOR!! T5- WAIT NO!! RAVEN LANDED ON HER FEET, AND THERE’S A SPINNING HEEL KIC- NO!! TERRY CAUGHT RAVEN’S LEG, AND NOW HE’S LIFTING HER UP, AND TERRY JUST DUMPED RAVEN OUT OF THE RING!! RAVEN IS QUICKLY MANAGING TO GET TO HER FEET, BUT LOOK!! TERRY IS RUNNING THE ROPES, DON’T TELL ME HE’S GONNA- SUICIDE DIVE!!
James Peters: HE MISSED!!! RAVEN GOT OUT THE WAY, AND TERRY JUST CRASHED SHOULDER FIRST INTO THAT BARRICADE!! IF THAT WING BREAKER DIDN’T MESS TERRY’S ARM UP, THAT SURE DID!! RAVEN NOW RUNNING OVER TO TERRY WHO’S BEGINNING TO STIR, AND SHE JUST RUTHLESSLY STOMPED RIGHT ONTO THAT LEFT ARM OF TERRY’S, THE SAME ONE THAT’S BEEN DAMAGED THROUGHOUT THIS MATCH!! RAVEN NOW ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GONNA WAIT FOR THE CHAMPION TO ENTER THE RING AS IT’S ONLY A COUNT OF THREE!
Rich Russillo: Terry is slowly managing to get to his feet, but even so he manages to get inside the ring by a count of five- BUT RAVEN ISN’T GIVING TERRY A CHANCE TO BREATHE AS SHE GOES RIGHT AFTER HIM, STOMPING AWAY AT THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! RAVEN IS PLAYING IT SMART HERE, AND KEEPING TERRY ON THE GROUND AS LONG AS SHE CAN AS SHE NOW STRETCHES OUT THAT LEFT ARM OF HIS, BEFORE STOMPING ON IT ONCE AGAIN! TERRY NOW HOLDING ONTO THAT ARM AS HE SLOWLY BEGINS GETTING TO A KNEE- TALON!!! JUST LIKE THAT, THERE’S THE TALON ON TERRY CHAMBERS, THIS COULD BE OVER!!
James Peters: BUT LOOK, TERRY IS ROLLING OUT OF THE RING!! RAVEN TRYING TO STOP HIM, BUT IT’S TOO LATE AS TERRY FALLS OFF THE APRON, JUST BEFORE SHE COULD GO FOR THE COVER!! Raven doesn’t seem to be upset about this though, as it looks like she’s instead waiting for him to either get back to his feet, or get back into the ring! The referee now looking outside of the ring to make sure Terry is okay, and it looks like he’s going to start his count as Raven continues to wait!
James Peters: Terry now finally getting to his feet, AND RAVEN NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GONNA TRY AND DO WHAT TERRY COULDN’T!! SUICIDE DIV- NO!! TERRY JUST GRABBED RAVEN IN MID AIR AND THIS TIME IT’S HIM SENDING HER BACK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE!! TERRY NOW, GRABBING HER BY THE THROAT WITH HIS RIGHT HAND, AND HE JUST SLAMMED HER ONTO THE APRON WITH JUST THAT ONE ARM!! Terry now dragging her off the apron, and he’s grabbing Raven by the neck, AS HE SENDS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!
Rich Russillo: Raven looks out of it right now and it’s for pretty good reason! Terry now rolling Raven back into the ring, BUT RAVEN QUICKLY GETS UP AND RUNS THE ROPES, BUT TERRY MANAGES TO SLIP BEHIND RAVEN!! LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS!! LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS!! THE REAR NAKED CHOKE IS LOCKED IN, AND TERRY QUICKLY MANAGED TO PULL RAVEN AWAY FROM THOSE ROPES AS HE PULLED HER TO THE GROUND!! THIS MAY BE BAD, MS. CASH IN THE VAULT MAY HAVE TO TAP, AND IT’D BE A HUGE WIN IF TERRY WAS ABLE TO DO SO JUST AFTER SHE MANAGED TO BEAT THERON NIKOLAS SO QUICKLY!
James Peters: RAVEN IS IN HUGE TROUBLE RIGHT NOW, AND TERRY MADE SURE TO BRING HER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING SO THERE’S NO WAY SHE’S GONNA MAKE IT TO THOSE ROPES!! RAVEN THOUGH, IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S TRYING TO ELBOW THAT LEFT ARM OF TERRY’S, AND LOOK! HE’S SLOWLY LOSING HIS GRIP!! RAVEN NOW PULLING HERSELF OVER TERRY, AND NOW SHE’S PINNING HIM!!
James Peters: TERRY KICKS OUT AND QUICKLY GETS TO A KNEE- FACELIFT!! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK CONNECTS WITH TERRY’S JAW JUST AS HE MANAGED TO GET TO A KNEE, AND NOW THERE’S ANOTHER COVER BY RAVEN, THIS TIME MANAGING TO HOOK THAT HUGE LEG!
James Peters: TERRY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!
Rich Russillo: WOW, HOW DID HE DO IT!? FOR A SECOND I THOUGHT THAT WAS IT, BUT OF COURSE THERE’S A REASON THIS MAN IS THE CURRENT INTERWIRE CHAMPION! RAVEN NOW WAITING AROUND THOUGH, AND SHE IMMEDIATELY LOCKS IN AN ARMBAR ON TERRY!! TERRY’S IN TROUBLE ONCE AGAIN AS RAVEN WENT RIGHT BACK TO THAT ARM FROM BEFORE!! TERRY’S GONNA HAVE TO TAP OUT IF HE WANTS TO KEEP THAT ARM IN GOOD CONDITION, BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE RAVEN IS TRYING TO KEEP THIS ARMBAR IN TIGHTLY, SHE’S GONNA BREAK HIS ARM IF HE DOESN’T TAP OUT!!
James Peters: WAIT NO, TERRY ROLLS RAVEN UP, WAIT NO! TERRY, HE’S PICKING HER UP USING HIS OTHER ARM! HE HAS HER IN A POWERBOMB POSITION, AND LOOK!! BUCKLE BOMB!! THAT TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB CONNECTS, JUST LIKE TERRY DID TO GAINES BACK AT BLOODSPORT, BUT TERRY ISN’T DONE! HE’S BACKED UP IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND NOW HE’S CHARGING IN AT RAVEN! RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!! IT CONNECTS FOR THE SECOND TIME, BUT HE’S NOT DONE STILL! TERRY RUNNING BACK TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND NOW HE’S CHARGING IN ONCE MORE, AND THERE’S THE THIRD RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE IN THIS MATCH, AND FINALLY TERRY IS GOING FOR THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: NO! RAVEN PUT HER FOOT ON THE ROPES!! THIS MATCH ISN’T DONE JUST YET, AS RAVEN MANAGED TO PUT HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE, JUST BEFORE THREE!! TERRY CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED, HE THOUGHT HE HAD THIS MATCH WON BUT HE CAN’T STOP NOW! TERRY NOW LIFTING RAVEN UP, AND THERE’S A POWERBOMB! TERRY NOW LIFTING RAVEN BACK UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO TRY AND POWERBOMB RAVEN OUT OF THE RING, BUT LOOK, SHE’S GOT THE ROPES! RAVEN WITH A HURRICANRANA, TAKING TERRY OUT OF THE RING, BOTH COMPETITORS GOING DOWN BUT RAVEN MANAGED TO LAND ON THE APRON!
James Peters: I don’t know how Raven managed to do that but it looks like it took as much out of her as expected! Neither competitor is capable of getting to their feet right now, and things may be looking bad as the referee is forced to start his count once again!
James Peters: Both competitors now back to their feet, BUT RAVEN MANAGES TO GET IN THE RING AND IMMEDIATELY BEGINS RUNNING THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE!! TERRY JUST FELL INTO THE BARRICADE, BUT RAVEN ISN’T DONE AS SHE RUNS BACK INTO THE RING ONCE MORE, AND THERE’S A SECOND SUICIDE DIVE, BOTH RESTARTING THE COUNT AND TAKING OUT BOTH COMPETITORS!! RAVEN JUST SACRIFICED HERSELF TO TAKE DOWN THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION, AND NOW THE REFEREE HAS TO COUNT ONCE MORE!
James Peters: BOTH COMPETITORS ARE CRAWLING ONTO THE APRON AT A COUNT OF EIGHT! CAN THEY MAKE IT BACK INTO THE RING? PLEASE DON’T LET THIS MATCH END LIKE THIS!
James Peters: THEY MADE IT! BOTH RAVEN AND TERRY MADE IT BACK INTO THE RING ON TIME, ONLY THIS TIME RAVEN ISN’T ABLE TO ATTACK AS SHE INSTEAD IS CRAWLING OVER TO THE ROPES, TRYING TO USE THEM TO GET TO HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: Terry now doing the same thing, and finally both competitors are able to get to their feet! Both Terry and Raven are beginning to circle the ring, waiting to see who will strike first! This has been quite the match so far, as these two don’t seem to want to give up no matter what’s done to them! These two can barely even stand, I just don’t get it, but of course that’s why Terry is Interwire Champ, and why Raven is Ms. Cash in the Vault! These two went through a lot to get here, there’s no way either competitor is gonna want to quit against each other!
James Peters: Of course, there’s no doubt about that! It’s unthinkable what these two will have to do to defeat each other, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE RAVEN IS THE ONE GOING TO ATTACK AS SHE CHARGES RIGHT AT TERRY! TERRY ATTEMPTING A CLOTHESLINE BUT RAVEN DUCKS IT! RAVEN NOW WITH A- NO! TERRY CAUGHT HER THIS TIME!! TERRY HIT A HUGE CLOTHESLINE, DROPPING RAVEN FLAT ON HER BACK! Terry now backing up into the corner as Raven crawls into the opposite one, and I don’t like where this is going!
Rich Russillo: Terry now charging in, BUT HE MISSES THE CANNONBALL! RAVEN MOVED AT THE LAST SECOND, SAVING HER FROM A CANNONBALL THAT COULD’VE DONE SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE! Raven now crawling up to the top rope, and at the same time it looks like Terry is beginning to get to his feet! Raven now at the top, AND THERE’S A MISSILE DROPKICK, TAKING TERRY DOWN! RAVEN’S GOING BACK UP TO THE TOP ROPE NOW, I THINK SHE’S GOING TO TRY AND FINISH THIS!! RAVEN’S WINGS-
James Peters: TERRY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW HE’S GRABBING RAVEN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S ATTEMPTING THE LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS BUT RAVEN IS QUICKLY ABLE TO GRAB ONTO THE ROPES, FORCING TERRY TO LET GO OF THE BIRD OF PREY! Terry now getting to his feet, and Raven does the same afterwards! Raven now charging right after Terry, AND SHE DUCKS A CLOTHESLINE AGAIN, AND THIS TIME SHE HITS A CHOP BLOCK TO TERRY’S RIGHT LEG! RAVEN NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK TO THE SAME LEG, DROPPING TERRY ONTO THE MAT!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Raven now has shifted her attention to Terry’s leg, and that’s a great idea, even if Gaines failed using that strategy. Unlike Gaines, Raven doesn’t need to make Terry tap out, but hurting that leg of his will make this match significantly easier for her! RAVEN NOW STOMPING ON TOP OF TERRY’S SHIN REPEATEDLY, BEFORE LOCKING IN AN ACHILLES LOCK!! TERRY IS SCREAMING OUT IN PAIN AS RAVEN HAS THE ACHILLES LOCK IN TIGHTLY, TRYING TO DO AS MUCH DAMAGE AS SHE CAN TO THAT LEG OF HIS! TERRY IS TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES, BUT IT’S A LONG CRAWL AWAY, AND BY THE TIME HE MAKES IT THE DAMAGE MAY ALREADY BE DONE! IS THIS IT FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION!?
James Peters: TERRY IS CRAWLING TO THOSE ROPES, BUT MUCH LIKE YOU SAID THE DAMAGE IS GOING TO REMAIN! TERRY NOW FINALLY GETTING A HOLD OF THOSE ROPES, AND FINALLY RAVEN HAS TO LET GO OF THE SUBMISSION BUT SHE’S STILL NOT DONE WITH THE CHAMPION, AS SHE IMMEDIATELY BEGINS STOMPING AWAY AT HIM! RAVEN NOW BEING SEPARATED FROM TERRY BY THE REFEREE, AND CAN TERRY CONTINUE!? TERRY IS USING THOSE ROPES TO GET UP, BUT RAVEN IS CHARGING RIGHT AT HIM- NO! TERRY PULLED THE ROPES DOWN, BUT RAVEN IS QUICK TO LAND AND GET BACK ONTO THE APRON, AND THERE’S A FOREARM TO TERRY!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN NOW CLIMBING BACK UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND NOW SHE DIVES- RIGHT INTO A BOOT! IT LOOKED LIKE RAVEN WAS GOING FOR A DOUBLE AXE HANDLE, BUT TERRY JUST COUNTERED WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT, I DIDN’T THINK HE HAD THAT MUCH LEFT IN HIM, BUT THERE’S THE COVER NOW! THAT MIGHT BE IT, TERRY MIGHT PUT AWAY RAVEN ROBERTS JUST LIKE THAT!!
Rich Russillo: NO! RAVEN GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! TERRY CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES, RAVEN IS STILL IN THIS MATCH AFTER ALL THAT! TERRY IS ASKING THE REFEREE, AND THE DECISION IS FINAL, RAVEN IS STILL IN THIS MATCH!! TERRY IS SLAMMING HIS HANDS ONTO THE MAT, AND HONESTLY I CAN UNDERSTAND HIS FRUSTRATION RIGHT NOW, I CAN’T BELIEVE RAVEN IS STILL IN THIS!
James Peters: Terry now grabbing Raven and Irish Whipping her into the corner, AND HE’S CHARGING IN- NO! ANOTHER DROPKICK TO THE RIGHT LEG! RAVEN JUST MANAGED TO SAVE HERSELF FROM WHATEVER TERRY WAS GOING TO DO, BUT NEITHER COMPETITOR IS GETTING UP RIGHT NOW! THIS MATCH HAS TAKEN WAY TOO MUCH OUT OF THE TWO OF THEM, BUT NOW RAVEN IS CRAWLING INTO THE CORNER FURTHEST FROM TERRY, AND I THINK SHE’S PLANNING TO FINISH THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Terry is beginning to get to a knee, AND RAVEN IS CHARGING IN- BUT TERRY JUST THREW HER UP, AND RAVEN LANDED ON THE TOP ROPE! LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS!! JUST LIKE TERRY DID TO GAINES, AND NOW HE’S PULLING HER OFF THE TOP ROPE- BUT NO! RAVEN LANDED ON HER FEET AND SHE BACKS UP AS TERRY BEGINS GETTING TO HIS FEET! RUNNING DROPKICK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! RAVEN NOW BACKING UP, AND THERE’S A SECOND DROPKICK, THIS TIME TAKING TERRY AND HERSELF DOWN!!
James Peters: Terry now, slowly managing to get to a knee, BUT THERE’S RAVEN, ONCE AGAIN WITH THE WING BREAKER!! TERRY IS IN TROUBLE ONCE AGAIN AS RAVEN SEEMS DETERMINED TO DESTROY THAT ARM OF TERRY’S, BUT TERRY IS QUICK TO RAM RAVEN INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BEFORE PULLING HER IN FOR A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE!! Terry now grabbing Raven, AND HE JUST TOSSED HER HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING!! RAVEN NOW CRAWLING INTO THE CORNER AS TERRY CHARGES IN! CANNONBALL BY THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION!! TERRY NOW PICKING RAVEN UP, AND THERE’S A SIT OUT POWERBOMB!! COVER BY TERRY, TO PUT RAVEN AWAY!!
James Peters: NO! RAVEN MANAGED TO PULL HERSELF ONTO TERRY FOR A PIN OF HER OWN, SHE’S GONNA STEAL IT!
James Peters: TERRY KICKS OUT, AND HE’S THE FIRST TO GET TO HIS FEET AS HE IMMEDIATELY CHARGES TOWARDS RAVEN, BUT RAVEN GETS OUT OF THE WAY, CAUSING TERRY TO GO SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!! RAVEN NOW WITH A CRUCIFIX PIN AS TERRY GOT OUT OF THE CORNER!!
James Peters: KICK OUT BY TERRY, AND ONCE AGAIN HE’S THE FIRST TO GET UP BUT HE’S HOLDING THAT ARM OF HIS! RAVEN IS SLOWLY MANAGING TO GET TO HER FEET AS WELL, AND TERRY IS CHARGING IN ONCE AGAIN, BUT RAVEN GETS OUT OF THE WAY, AND KICKS TERRY’S LEG OUT FROM UNDER HIM! TERRY’S DOWN TO ONLY A SINGLE KNEE!!
Rich Russillo: TERRY’S DOWN TO A KNEE, AND NOW RAVEN IS RUNNING THE ROPES!! TALON- NO! TERRY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, BUT RAVEN IS CHARGING RIGHT BACK AT HIM- BUT WAIT!! NO!! TERRY USED HIS RIGHT ARM TO PICK RAVEN UP, AND HE HAS HER ON HIS SHOULDERS!! T5- NO! RAVEN LANDED ON HER FEET ONCE MORE, AND THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, SHE’S GONNA TRY IT AGAIN!!
James Peters: RAVEN RUNNING THE ROPES, BUT TERRY CATCHES HER AGAIN, AND THIS TIME THERE’S THE T5, WITHOUT HESITATION!! TERRY JUST PLANTED RAVEN RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY TERRY CHAMBERS, WHAT A HUGE WIN THIS WOULD BE COMING OUT OF BLOODSPORT!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION, TERRRYYYY CHHAAAAMBBBERRRSSSS!!!!!
James Peters: TERRY WINS, HE DID IT! TERRY BEATS RAVEN ROBERTS, WHAT A HUGE WIN FOR HIM!!
Rich Russillo: Just like I told you! I knew there was no way Raven would be able to win this match, but I’ll give credit where it’s due! Raven put up a great fight, and both competitors were brought to their limit, but in the end, Terry Chambers is the winner!
James Peters: Yep, so congratulations Terry Chambers! What a match this one was, and what a win for Terry this must be!
(‘Natural’ plays once again and the crowd begins cheering as Terry begins to get to his feet before having his arm raised by the referee. During that time Raven Roberts has rolled out of the ring, and is leaning over the barricade, frustrated.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Cortizone 10.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to a scene filmed earlier in the week.)
( SCREEN BAR – “Earlier This Week” )
(EAW Network host, Molly Waters, is seen getting out of a car. The car has pulled up to a large, beautiful home that is actually recognizable to the EAW Universe. Having taken the advice of Veena Adams, Molly has decided to seek Scott Diamond out herself and find out what’s going on!)
(Molly makes her way up the driveway and heads right to the front door. She goes to knock, but the camera picks up the muffled sounds of an argument coming from the inside. The host and reporter recognizes both voices and she presses her ear against the door in order to hear better. The camera can’t exactly make out the conversation, but from the look on Molly’s face it’s rather heated and getting louder. After a moment, the front door swings open, knocking Molly to the ground, and the former manager of Scott Diamond, Albert Hitchman, storms out of the home. Hitchman looks at Molly, who’s picking herself up off the ground, and he shoots her a glare.)
Albert Hitchman: What are you doing here?!
Molly Waters: I came to talk to Scott since no one from his camp will return my calls.
Albert Hitchman (scoffing): Good luck.
Molly Waters: What’s going on? Why were you fighting? Is Scott Diamond returning to EAW??
Albert Hitchman: No.
(Molly opens her mouth to ask another question, but Hitchman storms down the steps and makes his way towards one of the parked cars. Molly turns her attention towards the front door, which has been left open. Without even hesitating she walks right inside the home of Scott Diamond, completely uninvited.)
(Scott is in the foyer, pacing the floor. The second he sees Molly step into his space, his eyes narrow.)
Scott Diamond: You do realize this a private residence, right?
(Molly gives Scott a look of defiance, completely unphased.)
Molly Waters: The door was left open, and I have been trying to get in contact with you for awhile now.
Scott Diamond: I’m well aware, but not everything is worth my time and effort to reply too.
Molly Waters: Well, you’re the one who made the cryptic post on EAW’s social media sight. The entire EAW Universe wants to know what you meant by that.
Scott Diamond: You can pretty much take it at face value and draw your own conclusions.
(A look of frustration crosses Molly’s face.)
Molly Waters: Why don’t you just tell us if you’re returning or not. I just watched Albert Hitchman storm out of here and he very bluntly said ‘no’ when I asked him if you were returning to EAW.
(Scott smirks and lets out a low laugh.)
Scott Diamond: Of course he did.
Molly Waters: Is he wrong? Are you going to return to EAW?
(Scott looks down at Molly, his jaw set in a firm line.)
Scott Diamond: I’m not done, so yes, Molly. I am returning to EAW and you’ll see me next week on Voltage.
(Molly goes to reply, but Scott cuts her off.)
Scott Diamond: Now that you finally have an answer to the question you’ve been pondering for weeks, you can see yourself out. I’ll answer whatever other questions you might have in my own time.
(Scott motions towards the door and out of respect, Molly spins on her heels and takes her leave. The scene fades out.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Rich and James behind the desk. Both of them look shocked.)
James Peters: Scott Diamond on Voltage next week?!
Rich Russillo: Holy shit! That’s huge! I guess Scott wanted more after Pain for Pride?! He looked great in his match against Lethal Consequences, and honestly I’m pretty stoked that he’s going to come back. Holy shit. Like seriously… holy shit.
James Peters: I literally can’t wait to see Scott back in the ring, Rich.
( ‘Devil Trigger’ by Casey Edwards starts to play, drawing an approving reception from the crowd as Kai Zolomon steps through the curtains. He glares the audience before marching down to the ring. )
Rich Russillo: :wow: And we have a main event to get to now, and after the little confrontation between Kai and Dr. Bethany Blue earlier this evening, and knowing what’s on the line for both of them come Territorial Invasion, I could not be more stoked for this match.
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FOLLOW CONTEST IS SCHEDULE FOR ONE FALL AND IT’S OUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!! INTRODUCING FIRST! From Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 218 pounds… KAAAAAIIIII ZOLLLLLLOOOOOMMMMONNNNN!!!!
James Peters: Kai’s is definitely going to be out to prove a point tonight, and show Dr. Bethany Blue why he deserves his championship opportunity more than she deserves hers. He intends on bringing the same violence and aggression he deposited at Bloodsport and that could mean bad things for the future of Dr. Bethany Blue.
( While Zolomon prepares himself at his respective corner, ‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi blasts through the speaker, cueing for Dr. Bethany Blue to emerge from the gorilla position. She poses on the stage and basks in the serenation of boos before walking down the ramp )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Miami, Florida, weighing in at 128 pounds… DOCTOR….. BETTHHHHANNNNYYYYY BLUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: Even though Dr. Bethany Blue may not look intimidating because of her doctor persona, once you step into the ring with her, you get what you never expected. But Kai Zolomon has been in the squared circle with Dr. Bethany Blue before and he has a good understanding on what he will receive tonight.
( DING! DING! DING! )
James Peters: This contest is officially in full swing as both competitors begin to square up in the center of the ring. Two different personas and styles are about to collide tonight as Dr. Bethany Blue gestures to initiate a collar-and-elbow tie up. Zolomon raises his hands as he closely connects them with the doctor’s.
Rich Russillo: Dr. Blue attempted to blindside Zolomon with a kick to the gut, but Zolomon saw it coming as he holds her right boot in his hand. Zolomon cautiously and slowly brings her boot back down. DR. BLUE TRIES TO BLAST HIM WITH A FOREARM SMASH BUT ZOLOMON DODGES IT!! Zolomon circles around Dr. Blue’s waist, grabs her head and flips her forward onto the canvas! Zolomon takes a step back and SENDS HIS BOOT TO THE BACK OF DR. BLUE!
James Peters: Dr. Blue moves out of the way and shoves Zolomon into the ropes. He rebounds from the ropes while Dr. Blue runs past him and SPRINGS FROM THE ROPES!!! SHE JUMPS UP AND PULLS HIM DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A HURRICANRANA!! Zolomon flees into the corner after the beautiful ‘Rana from the Doctor!

James Peters: KICK OUT!! Zolomon rolls under the bottom rope and rests on the apron as Dr. Blue gathers herself in the center of the ring. Dr. Blue steps through the middle rope and joins Kai Zolomon on the apron as she sizes him up! Dr. Blue holds Zolomon’s chin up and raises her hand! OH NO!!! SAY AHHH!!!!! MANDIBLE CLAW!!! SHE HAS THE MANDIBLE CLAW LOCKED IN ON THE APRON!!!
Rich Russillo: ZOLOMON PUSHES HER INTO THE RINGPOST!!! Zolomon releases the hold momentarily as Dr. Blue returns back up to her feet!! ZOLOMON CHARGES INTO HER!!! AND DR. BETHANY BLUE CONNECTS WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE AND SHATTERS THE JAW OF ZOLOMON!! Zolomon comes off the ringpost and CIRCLES AROUND DR. BLUE!!!

Rich Russillo: Both Dr. Bethany Blue and Kai Zolomon exhausted as they have difficulty getting back up to their feet. They remain seated in opposite corners across the ring as the crowd continues to give them a standing ovation! What the hell did Dr. Blue just bring into the ring? Dr. Blue was silently bringing out something from beneath the ring and she just brought surgical scissors into the squared circle..
James Peters: The referee notices the weapon she possesses as he proceeds to take it from her. Dr. Blue easily gives it to the referee as she immediately goes for the middle turnbuckle while the referee throws the scissors away! Dr. Blue has taken out the turnbuckle pad, exposing the steel while both the referee and Zolomon are clueless!
Rich Russillo: The crowd raining down boos onto Dr. Blue as she approaches Zolomon. They settle in the middle of the ring and begin to exchange strikes!

( ‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi plays through the speakers as it is accompanied by an uproar of boos. Dr. Bethany Blue gingerly uses the ropes to get up to her feet while the official tends to the exhausted Kai Zolomon )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….DOCTOR….. BETTTTHHHANNNNYYY BLLLLLUUUUUUUEEEEEE!!!
Rich Russillo: Not only did Dr. Bethany Blue prove why she deserves to be named amongst the only two Ultimate Opportunists, and now as we know the number one contender to the Interwire Championship. She demonstrated that she should be the only one to have that right. While Zolomon may be the number one contender to the New Breed Championship, Dr. Blue proved her superiority over him.
James Peters: Do not take anything away from Zolomon’s performance as he also proved why he also proved why he deserves his title opportunity at Territorial Invasion as well. He showed how much of a great competitor he is and there is nothing to take away from that. However, he came up short tonight and hopefully, he’ll be able to bounce back from this loss. Congratulations to Dr. Bethany Blue.
(The good doctor has rolled out of the ring and is backing up the ramp. She is smirking at Kai Zolomon, who is back to his feet and shaking the cobwebs out. Dr. Bethany Blue raises her arms in the air and the crowd erupts in cheers. She smiles, thinking they’re for her, and turns around…
… bumping right in to Terry Chambers!!!
Terry looks down at Dr. Bethany Blue, who’s eyeing him up with a delightful little smile on her face. Champ and Challenger stare one another down with the roar of the crowd behind them as Voltage fades to black.)
