(EAW intro plays.)

(A recap from last weeks Voltage begins to play, starting with Talib Bari’s “Cloth Talk” with all of the competitors in the Specialists Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber, which ended in chaos as the women began to brawl. The recap then shows Donovan Duke defeating Eddie Magnum. Next the recap shows Darcy May Morgan’s talk with Drake King, before showing Azrael’s win over Shane Gates. Afterwards the recap shows Nina Bravo defeating Lisa Wren, and then Sienna Jade defeating Sierra Bradford. The recap then shows the confrontation between Jesse Barlow and Myles, before Barlow would defeat Colt Hendrix. Next the recap would show Sofia Clarke’s interview with Donovan Duke, before showing TLA and Terry Chambers’ win over Drake King and Darcy May Morgan after Darcy would cost Drake. Next the recap shows the Blicky Boyz promo which would be interrupted by Sienna Jade, before showing Candice Blair scoring a big win over Kasey Kaos with a roll up. Finally the recap would show SOSA Henderson defeating Harper Lee in the main event, before Azrael would attack SOSA while the Corona Hombres watch on.)

(Voltage’s signature opening music begins to play, and the camera opens up to the World 1 Theatre and all of the virtual fans in attendance. The virtual fans all begin cheering as they see themselves on screen, and afterwards the camera cuts to the commentary table, where as usual James Peters, Rich Russillo and Persephone.)

James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome to Sunday Night Voltage! As always I’m James Peters and with me is Rich Russillo and Persephone! Road to Redemption is getting closer and closer and it looks like we once again have an amazing night ahead of us!

Persephone: Amazing? Really? What’s there to look forward to tonight James? Tonight’s show looks horrible… As always.

Rich Russillo: I have to disagree there Persephone. I mean just look at our main event! SOSA Henderson versus Azrael! Azrael’s proven to be quite the threat in recent times, this should be one fantastic match!

Persephone: You guys can’t be serious..

(Soon after Persephone finishes speaking, ‘Triumph’ by Tenth Dimension hits. Before long Drake King makes his way out to the stage, and he looks pissed to say the least. He has a microphone in his hand and it’s pretty obvious why he looks the way he does after what went down last week on Voltage, where Darcy would cost Drake in their tag team Extreme Elimination Chamber qualifier against Terry Chambers and TLA. As Drake makes his way to the ring he hangs his head down, and as he finally steps inside of the ring he soon begins to speak.)

Drake King: These past few months I’ve tried my best to endure that Darcy May Morgan got the success I believed she deserved. I wanted her to succeed, and even as we met setback after setback I didn’t give up because I wanted her to get everything she deserved. I wanted her to win Wargames. I wanted her to make it through the Grand Prix and become a Double Champion. Just last week I wanted her to have the opportunity to get her own taste of revenge on Terry Chambers after failing to defeat him at Bloodsport in a match that had nothing to do with me, but you know what she did? She spat in my face. She committed the ultimate sin. Darcy May Morgan stabbed me in the back after everything we’ve been through together. After everything I tried to do for her and after months of her trying to prove everyone wrong, SHE betrayed ME. Darcy threw away everything we’ve built and threw away any chance of us moving past our recent streak of failures. Not only did she spit in my face, but because of her actions once again TLA was given an opportunity to succeed. Because of Darcy, TLA now has a chance to capture the EAW Championship and I can’t understand why she’d want to do such a thing. Because of Darcy’s own actions I can’t help her anymore. Darcy burned a bridge I tried as hard as I possibly could to keep intact. I tried to help Darcy through every loss we suffered together. I tried helping her out of the same streak of losses I’ve found myself in, and this is how she repays me? This is what I get in return for all I’ve done to try and help her all these months? I never asked for Darcy to thank me, or for her to give me anything in return for my kindness, but I never expected Darcy to do something so selfish. I never thought she’d make such a foolish mistake, but now look. Now I have to do something I really don’t want to do, all because Darcy didn’t have the will to keep moving forward.

(Drake stops talking for a few seconds and just shakes his head. He soon looks back up at the camera, beginning to speak once again.)

Drake King: Darcy, you should not have done that. You really shouldn’t have done that. Now I HAVE to hurt you when this entire time my goal was to do the opposite. I never wanted to take anything away from you or to harm you in any way but you forced my hand. You’ll have to be punished for your sins now. You’ll have to be struck down for what you’ve done and this is nobody’s fault but your own. I spent so long trying to help you and give you the accomplishments you deserved, and in return I received betrayal. If you wish to be an enemy instead of an ally, then so be it. Just know things never had to be like this. You could have gone so much further and accomplished so much if you had just allowed me to continue helping you, but instead you did this! You are your own worst enemy Darcy, and because of your own foolish actions you have to pay. Darcy was insolent, and I promise that I will not spare the rod. I hope you’re proud of what you’ve done, because what occurred last week on Voltage was treason, and I will NOT allow that to pass any longer.

(‘Spotlight Savior’ by Iggy Azalea hits, and Drake looks up at the stage unamused as Darcy May Morgan walks out. She too has a microphone in one hand and her Cash in the Vault briefcase in the other, and as her music begins to fade out very quickly as she soon begins to speak while making her way down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Darcy May Morgan: Really, Drake? Is this some type of joke? After everything you put me through these past few months this is what you have to say? You seriously blame me for doing what I did after dragging my career further down the drain week after week for the past few months? You really are a piece of shit.

(Darcy finally steps inside of the ring and walks up to Drake, causing the two to stand face to face.)

Darcy May Morgan: At Territorial Invasion, you literally cost Team Voltage the match! I spent weeks after that trying to defend you and I continued to trust you, and you know where that got me? A loss to Malcolm Jones at Wicked Games. An elimination from the Grand Prix after weeks of you “promising” that we’d win the entire tournament. Now last week I was being forced to fight for YOU when you spent all these months holding ME back! I’m very proud of what I did last week Drake. What else should I have done after you promised to help me succeed just like you do with everyone else, then did the exact opposite!? You’re a liar, and everyone was right to doubt the House of Leaders. They were right to laugh at me and call me an idiot, because quite frankly I’m embarrassed to have ever trusted you with something as important as MY career. Drake you are nothing but a fraud. I should have never believed in this “Messiah” crap, and looking back maybe we should’ve replaced you heading into Wargames. Maybe then I’d actually be able to call myself a Wargames winner. Maybe you wouldn’t have even bothered approaching me for the Grand Prix and I could have dodged a huge bullet. Spitting in your face last week? That wasn’t a mistake, and I’m very proud of what I did to you. That was the best decision I made all season! Now I’m finally free from your bullshit and I can actually succeed, without you dragging me down-

James Peters: OH, WHAT THE HELL!? DRAKE JUST SLAPPED DARCY IN THE FACE!! DRAKE JUST HIT DARCY IN THE FACE AND THAT CAUSED HER TO DROP TO THE MAT, WHAT’S GOTTEN INTO HIM!?

(As Darcy slowly gets back up, holding her face while processing what just happened Drake looks at her with nothing but anger in his eyes. As Drake drops his microphone, he picks Darcy back up by her hair and looks her in the eyes before beginning to speak.)

Drake King: (off-mic) YOU MADE YOUR CHOICE DARCY, AND YOU WILL NOT BE SPARED! AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION YOU ANSWER TO ME, AND YOU WILL PAY FOR WHAT YOU’VE DONE!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE TOSSES DARCY TO THE ROPES, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE GUILLOTINE AS SHE BOUNCES OFF OF THEM!!

James Peters: WAIT, NO!! DARCY MANAGED TO AVOID THE GUILLOTINE!! DARCY AVOIDED THE GUILLOTINE AND NOW SHE RUNS THE ROPES HERSELF!!! DON’T DISS DARCY!!! DON’T DISS DARCY CONNECTS ON DRAKE KING!!!

(Darcy looks down on Drake in disgust as she finally picks up her Cash in the Vault briefcase, and picks up one of the fallen microphones before walking towards the ropes.)

Darcy May Morgan: Don’t you EVER threaten me

again. At Road to Redemption you’re gonna wish you never crossed paths with the Leading Lady, and that’s a promise.

(Darcy drops the microphone and finally exits the ring. ‘Spotlight Savior’ starts back up, and Darcy continues making her way up the ramp as Drake is still down and out in the center of the ring. As Darcy heads backstage, Voltage finally fades out to the first commercial break of the night.)

(Commercial for Ronan Malosi and Ryan Wilson’s counseling classes. Even the biggest enemies can learn to become friends :wow:.)

(Black Madonna” [Instrumental] by Azealia Banks featuring Lex Luger echoes throughout the arena as the superstar Lisa Wren is entering first in this tag match. Everyone is hyped, especially the commentators and the ring announcer is ready to start her introductions. Persephone is too distracted by herself as she can’t stop talking trash about Lisa Wren and Eddie Magnum as she sees both of them as nothing but local competitors. Bella Braxton is seen in the middle of the ring, starting her ring introductions for the next match as she is seen grabbing her microphone.)

Bella Braxton: This singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!! Introducing first, from British Columbia, Canada! Weighing in at 140 pounds, LISA WREN!!!!!

James Peters: Tonight, both Lisa Wren and her opponent are going to the warzone!

Persephone: What can she do in a real war zone though? Just using it metaphorically shows that it’s impossible in real life! This match isn’t going to be one for the ages but rather a slow match that can only get some thumbs down reactions.

Rich Russillo: You should’ve waited for more seconds for us to explain this. It’s not a big hype main event match but instead a normal match that will hopefully showcase the talent that are offered a chance to work in Voltage.

Persephone: If we are counting bigger and better talents, putting these 2 irrelevant competitors ruined the word for me.

James Peters: So, I guess their job is to prove you wrong, Persephone! I believe in these two, they can deliver and they will.

Persephone: Keep your positivity and hopes up before you get disappointed with the results. Because this won’t be exciting.

Rich Russillo: Maybe you should open your eyes more on these guys, Persephone.

(As Lisa Wren is in the ring prepared as she goes to the corner, ‘Warrior’s Code’ by the Dropkick Murphys starts kicking in because it’s time for The Real Deal. His opponent, Eddie Magnum enters the ring with a look of a serious competitor. He has a serious look, with a desire to win after he has been met with some losses that he wants to forget about. He walks to the ring and he is already taunting Lisa Wren while the referee is keeping the distance between the two competitors.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Boston, Massachusetts. Weighing in at 213 pounds, he is The Real Deal… EDDIE MAGNUM!!!!!

James Peters: Speaking of new talent, Eddie Magnum is still fresh in the store and it’ll be too early for us to judge him!

Rich Russillo: He got a spirit of a warrior with his unique personality in Voltage and I think he’ll fit in this environment.

Persephone: He is going to get unemployed, fat and fired after 2 months. Just wait for it.

James Peters: There is also some back and forth going before this match, with Eddie Magnum disrespecting Lisa Wren as a whole and Lisa Wren coming back with a response.

Rich Russillo: However, talk means nothing when it’s in the ring, this is the moment that all of you are waiting for!

Persephone: Nobody waited for this but okay.

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: Quick elbow from Eddie Magnum catching Lisa Wren off-guard and he quickly went with a Sleeper Hold attempt, countered by Lisa Wren and she got him in a headlock. Lisa tossed him into the turnbuckle and he crashed there, Lisa with Stingers Splash countered by a Roundhouse Kick, sending her to the ropes, grabbing her own face while Eddie Magnum went with some chops to her chest!

Rich Russillo: Eddie quickly grabbed her head again but she quickly dodged him and Lisa Wren with that Russian Leg Sweep! She quickly went with the Front Chancery, Eddie with some punches to her guts managed to escape before sending her to the ropes again. What is the plan going into Eddie Magnum’s mind right now? Eddie is kicking Lisa Wren’s legs as she is holding on the ropes! It’s pretty early for a trick like this but I hope it’ll work.

James Peters: As Lisa Wren is seen grabbing her legs after letting go of the ropes, Eddie Magnum takes control again as he quickly grabs her! Snapmare and a kick to the back of the head, headlock locked in again! However, Lisa Wren escapes easily this time! Lisa with an elbow to Eddie Magnum and Eddie bounced to the ropes, jumping forearm smash, countered as Lisa Wren escaped, Lisa charged to him, Running Hurricanrana! As they both got up again, Lisa Wren attacked him with a Dropkick sending him lying in the ring!

Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren quickly grabs his legs and goes with a Slingshot throw to the turnbuckle but Eddie Magnum quickly changes it into a diving crossbody! Eddie Magnum with some shots to her head before throwing her to the corner, Eddie Magnum with a Corner Dropkick, this time connecting and he quickly went with a Snap Suplex! He is giving Lisa Wren a thumbs down pose as a sign of mockery. He kicked Lisa Wren’s legs again, I think there is indeed a trick in the hat!

Persephone: Yes, that trick is literally called wrestling.

James Peters: He quickly grabs her back up but she went with a Jawbreaker and A ROLLUP, 1, 2, KICK OUT! THEY ARE BOTH UP! Lisa Wren to Eddie Magnum but Eddie did a move first and Lisa is down after a Big Boot. Eddie throws her to the ropes but that momentum isn’t enough as it forces him to bring out a clothesline to put her out! Eddie Magnum is seen posing in the middle of the ring before talking trash about Lisa Wren again. There won’t be a match without any trash talking!

Persephone: And people still asked me why I think those people are boring and generic.

Rich Russillo: He ran to the outside, TOPE CON HILO TO LISA WREN BUT LISA CAUGHT HER WITH A SUDDEN JUMPING DDT! HOW CAN SHE DO THAT? Lisa Wren grabs her legs again as she is walking slower than during the start of the match not because she was tired, but that was the part targeted by Eddie Magnum. She quickly went to Eddie who was seen lying on the floor after the devastating DDT, helpless! She went to throw him to the steps, but he jumped over them and got into the ring, that’s an impressive showing!

James Peters: Lisa Wren also got into the ring again as they both circled around for some seconds, with Lisa Wren making the crying pose while Eddie Magnum is showing his thumbs down. It’s a mental battle where both of them want to tear each other apart.

Persephone: First of all, there are a lot of things wrong with this ‘strategy’ from both competitors! Not doing anything is flawed and obviously a weak strategy.

James Peters: However, I think they are doing it right. It’s for the sake of making their opponents pissed off and when you get pissed off, you started doing things you shouldn’t do.

Persephone: So if I’m pissed off, I started commentating. From your logic, I shouldn’t?

James Peters: I think that’s a different way of interpreting it but let’s focus on the real big thing we’re having right here. They both went with the normal lockup as Lisa Wren is seen to have the advantage but her legs are starting to become a burden because her movement is about to get slower! She is getting down easier on her knees and Eddie Magnum caught her with a DDT out of nowhere. Eddie Magnum quickly grabbed her legs and went with a Slingshot throw, she landed on the turnbuckle, Crossbody, Dropkick from Eddie Magnum countering it! Eddie Magnum quickly got in the headlock again as he is making sure Lisa Wren is tired, however, Lisa Wren’s hand is already on the ropes so the submission is not going to help Magnum win at all!

Rich Russillo: Magnum is arguing hard with the referee as he is not agreeing with how he operates! That is literally disrespect towards the workers working with you in the ring, the referee isn’t pleased about this. LISA WREN QUICK WITH A ROLLUP, FAST COUNT FROM THE REFEREE!!!!!

Referee: ONE! TWO!

Rich Russillo: Desperate kick out from Eddie Magnum as he quickly went to the referee again, asking what he just did! He is getting angry after the referee tried to pull a real fast count on him! LISA WREN GOT UP BEHIND HIM AND WENT WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX OUT OF NOWHERE, EDDIE MAGNUM BOUNCED AND HE STOOD TO THE ROPES, LISA WREN KICKED HIM OUT OF THE RING AGAIN! LISA WREN QUICKLY TO THE ROPES, SHE BARELY HAVE ANY BALANCE BUT SHE IS TRYING HER BEST, MOONSAULT! NO! EDDIE MAGNUM CAUGHT HER!!!!!

James Peters: He quickly reversed it and now he threw Lisa Wren to the steps again, before throwing her in whole executing a Boston Crab to make sure that she stays there! That is a pretty dirty move if you asked me because clearly every single shot to her legs make sense now. Now, Lisa Wren is trying her best to get out of the lock as she is struggling there. She might even tap out if that’s the case. But she is trying her best to survive in the jungle when everybody else is getting eaten.

Persephone: That didn’t make any sense.

Rich Russillo: Every single minute felt like hours because Lisa Wren’s journey to the ropes isn’t short enough for us to watch. She really needs to reach it to defend her own pride because she knows, if she taps out to Eddie Magnum, that’ll show her as a cocky competitor who got humbled more than a legit competitor who is ready for the business. She doesn’t want that to happen because she will definitely be embarrassed. You got to appreciate her trying to hold the pain from the Boston Crab, and there she goes, she grabbed the ropes and the referee is asking Eddie Magnum to release the Boston Crab. Lisa Wren is grabbing her legs hard as Eddie Magnum is asked to wait on the corner before the referee declares the match to be continued. Eddie kept coming for Lisa Wren’s legs as you can see he is trying to kick them, but Lisa is smart enough as she kept her distance.

James Peters: Eddie Magnum tried to get near with a Clothesline but Lisa ducked, she went to the ropes and a Discus Knee Strike was done! Eddie is seen grabbing his face as Lisa Wren sets him up in the trap nicely! Lisa Wren with that Cactus Clothesline that sent her both with Eddie Magnum out as her legs aren’t feeling good enough, causing her to fall down while Eddie is recovering.

Rich Russillo: She has done way too much and it’ll be a waste of time if she just gives up right there. She has sacrificed a lot just for this moment and she shouldn’t be tapping out.

Persephone: Jeez, you guys are making a big deal out of this. This is not even a championship match, nothing is on the line for Lisa Wren. She shouldn’t act like this is important when it isn’t.

Rich Russillo: For a wrestler, every single match that he or she had will be important, because in the end, if she does win a championship in the future, it’ll be a story of growth and how you can achieve your dreams. Now, let’s get back into the match as the referee is counting 6 and Eddie Magnum is ready to enter the ring before lying there again! He is smiling, knowing that Lisa Wren wouldn’t enter easil- SHE DID IT ON THE NINTH COUNT! Eddie Magnum goes to a corner as he is planning his next move! Lisa Wren isn’t waiting as they quickly locked up and of course, Eddie kicked her legs down! But she is just holding the pain!!! Whatever it takes for Lisa Wren! He went with a Superkick and Lisa Wren is on her knees! He ran to the turnbuckle before going back to Lisa Wren, knee str- LISA WREN GOT HIM WITH A BACK BODY DROP! WAIT, IT’S HER FINISHER, NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!!!! SHE WENT FOR THE COVER, LISA!!!!!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(Black Madonna” [instrumental] by Azealia Banks featuring Lex Luger starts playing as Lisa Wren is getting her hand raised by the referee. She looked at the exhausted Eddie Magnum who failed to capture the win and she laughed at him before going out of the ring.)

Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER… LISA WREN!!!!!

James Peters: Can we give Lisa Wren a round of applause for this amazing performance that she brought?

Rich Russillo: We should definitely give her props for even trying to do something great!

Persephone: I don’t think competing in a mediocre match is a great performance enough.

James Peters: Eddie Magnum has efforts, but they aren’t enough to put Lisa Wren down.

Rich Russillo: As she is seen celebrating right now, I guess we’ll enjoy this win together!

(Lisa Wren went out of the ring to celebrate as she is seen talking trash to the now defeated Eddie Magnum who is using the ropes to assist his movements. Magnum looked at Lisa Wren with a furious face as he wasn’t pleased with what happened tonight. Finally Voltage fades away from ringside.)

(Promotional ad for Road to Redemption, featuring the current competitors for Voltage’s EAW Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber.)

(The scene fades into Captain Charisma in his office, talking with an intern, who had just come in to get his coffee. CC has the coffee in his hand as he goes over a few things on the interns clipboard involving business and whatnot. A knock on the door is heard, but CC ignores it. Really boring stuff. In perfect timing, Ahren Fournier is shown outside the door in his trademark shades, black suit and fur coat. Jennipurr is in his arms as she’s wearing a matching fur coat. She seems quite relaxed and pays no attention to anything around her, but Ahren.)

Ahren Fournier: AHEM…The GOAT has arrived! I need attention! Give me attention, please!

Captain Charisma: (to Ahren outside) Just one moment, Ahren.

(Captain Charisma goes back to the intern with the clipboard as they chatter about random business stuff again. It pans back outside the door where Ahren Fournier seems a little annoyed since he really believes that everyone must drop what they’re doing and pay attention to him when he is here.

Ahren Fournier: (to Jennipurr) Can you believe them? Just ignoring me like that?

Jennipurr: Meow…meow…meow… (In translation: Do they not know greatness when it’s in front of them? You are the reason for the ratings!)

Ahren Fournier: Agreed, Jennipurr. Let’s how them who runs this place here!

(Ahren Fournier slams the door open as he steps inside Captain Charisma’s office. Jennipurr is startled a bit, but Ahren takes a moment or two to comfort her and apologize until she loves him again. Then, Ahren approaches the intern before taking his clipboard, looking at everyone.)

Ahren Fournier: (studies the clipboard) Yes..yes..no..no..are you kidding me? Yes…yes.. *slams the clipboard to the chest of the intern* It’s all good. Now, leave. The GOAT has very important matters with our Commissioner!

(The intern says nothing as he does what Ahren Fournier says and leaves the office. This leaves Ahren Fournier and Captain Charisma alone with each other.)

Captain Charisma: May I help you, Ahren?

Ahren Fournier: Well…

(Ahren Fournier doesn’t say much, believing that it should be obvious what he is talking about, but Captain Charisma is not understanding it.)

Captain Charisma: “Well…” What, Ahren?

Ahren Fournier: Well…Why the fuck hasn’t the GOAT been invited to the Extreme Elimination Chamber?! For the life of me, I have not figured out why I HAVEN’T been invited to participate in the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption! For the past few weeks, I have waited for your calls and texts, Captain Charisma! I have been waiting for you to right the wrong and add the GOAT in the Chamber. I should have been the first person that you thought off for the Chamber after SODA Henderson robbed me of a chance to become EAW Champion! I thought that you would be more than anxious to right this wrong and prove that you are a man that cares about you roster, Matthieu. Perhaps, I was wrong in the sense, but here is your opportunity to right the wrong and add ME into the Extreme Elimination Chamber!

Captain Charisma: Well, Ahren; you haven’t earned the right to be part of the Chamber —

(Ahren Fournier cuts off Captain Charisma, really annoyed now.)

Ahren Fournier: What do you mean that I haven’t “earned” the right to be part of the Chamber? Do you know who you are talking to? I am Ahren Fournier a.k.a. Le GOAT! I am an EAW Hall of Famer! I have the ring as proof!

(Ahren Fournier flashes his Hall of Fame ring to Captain Charisma, who looks at it with a nod.)

Ahren Fournier: Look, even Jennipurr has her matching ring. I had it custom made.

(Ahren Fournier flashes Jennipurr’s Hall of Fame ring which is resting on her collar.)

Captain Charisma: That’s adorable. Not going to lie —

Ahren Fournier: But ye, I am a former TWO-TIME CHAMBER WINNER!  Have any of those men in the match won a Chamber match? No, I don’t think so! Not even one! Poor them! I AM THE GOAT! I am the man who is responsible for Voltage’s ratings going through the roof! Is this how you reward your money maker, Matthieu? Do you just leave him off the Road to Redemption card? Do you just leave him off the show even though I am the one thing that keeps this company from going down the sewer? I am the greatest thing about this brand! I should be the EAW Champion! I’ve barely lost all season long and are we going to ignore that? HUH?!?! My win-loss ratio is the best of the roster!

Captain Charisma: Uh yeah, that’s great, but thus far, Azrael, Terry and TLA have all earned their spots in the Chamber. To be fair, you already had your shot to defeat SOSA at Wicked Games, but you didn’t, so back in the line you go, Ahren.

(Captain Charisma shoos Ahren Fournier away and out of his office. Ahren’s jaw drops to the floor that CC denied him of a shot to enter the Chamber. Ahren looks at Jennipurr baffled as Jennipurr has an expression that she can’t believe what she had just heard.)

Ahren Fournier: :skip: !!!!!

Captain Charisma: :umad: !!!

Ahren Fournier: So like… I gotta earn this shit?

Captain Charisma: It’s what everyone else has done.

Ahren Fournier: Well…how about next week, I earn my way to the Chamber? I’ll go ahead and make myself a qualifying match!

Captain Charisma: :skip: Ahren, it doesn’t work that way —

Ahren Fournier: :umad: It works that way now!

(Captain Charisma is quite curious for what Ahren Fournier is going with this idea.)

Captain Charisma: What qualifying match are you going to try and make for yourself?

Ahren Fournier: Hmmm….Imma run a gauntlet. This is the perfect match to show everyone why I am The GOAT and why I am more than deserving of my spot in that Chamber. I am going to defeat every other big in this gauntlet and show them why I am the best, I am the present and future of this business. There is no one that is able to touch me in the ring. There is no one that comes close to me and all the talent that I possess. Everyone already in the Chamber? They ain’t shit compared to me? Am I supposed to be threatened of Pennywise’s fat uncle? Am I supposed to be threatened by the guy who always chokes on his huge opportunities? Am I supposed to be threatened of TLA? Come on, I would be the greatest threat to SOSA! He thinks that he got rid of me at Wicked Games, but no one gets rid of The GOAT!

Captain Charisma: You know what? You run this gauntlet and you’re in the match.

Ahren Fournier: I knew you’d like the idea. :mjgrin:

(Ahren Fournier leaves Captain Charisma’s office as CC has an amused look on his face. This whole gauntlet is going to be fun for sure.)

(Voltage returns from to ringside as we see Bella Braxton standing in the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!

(‘Walking the Wire’ by Imagine Dragons hits the speakers to a mix of cheers and boos. Alexis Chambers walks out through the curtains, onto the stage, with a determined look on her face.)

James Peters: Out comes Alexis Chambers, who started training just over a year ago. In that time she’s made waves around the wrestling world, and in a few weeks could become the next Specialists Champion! That’s impressive work, REALLY impressive.

Rich Russillo: Her opponent though? :drakelike: She’s done way more than Alexis, and beaten way more people. Granted, she’s been a wrestler for much longer, but we can’t discredit what she’s done.

James Peters: I wasn’t discrediting anyone, I was saving it for when she came out, but sure, simp over the one that looks like a supermodel.

Rich Russillo: Hey!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, weighing at 117 pounds… ALEEEEEEEEEEEXIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMBEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS!

(Alexis walks up the steps, and climbs into the ring, before she poses on the ropes. Her theme fades out, as she sits on the middle turnbuckle, before ‘Diva’ by Beyonce floods through the speakers, to the same reaction as Alexis.)

Rich Russillo: 1. I do not simp over this woman. 2. She is a FANTASTIC performer, and you cannot assume otherwise! I’m sure I’ve said this multiple times before, but Candice Blair is the future of this company, and if anyone can win the Specialists Chamber it’s her! She’s fantastic, no more than fantastic.

Persephone: Not a simp, huh? :usure:

Rich Russillo: Nope! Anyway, you busy later tonight?

Persephone: I really should watch when I open my mouth.

James Peters: Candice Blair has shown she’s ready for the big leagues week after week after week, and she’s finally been placed in the proving ground. As one of the Road To Redemption Specialist Chamber competitors, she’s in a great spot to win a championship perfect for her.

Bella Braxton: And introducing her opponent… From San Francisco, California… Weighing in at 126 pounds… “THE HOT COMMODITY” CANDIIIIIIIIICE BLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIR!

(Candice Blair slides into the ring, before climbing to the middle turnbuckle and posing. She climbs down and leans against the ropes as her theme fades out. She then walks to her corner.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: The bell rings, indicating this match is underway! Alexis and Candice begin to circle the ring, as they raise their arms in the air, looking for a test of strength! They slowly approach, before their hands lock up, only for Alexis to throw a kick! Candice catches the boot, but it seems Alexis was luring her in! Step-up Enzuigiri- No! Candice ducks, and Alexis drops to the floor. Candice quickly rolls Alexis onto her back and transitions into a cover!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: But she quickly kicks out! Alexis rolls to her feet, as does Candice, before Alexis attempts a backspin kick, but Candice ducks once more! Alexis quickly attempts a leg sweep, but Candice leaps over it! Upon landing on her feet, she jumps into the air again and attempts a rolling savate, but Alexis ducks, then attempts a backslide roll up, only for Candice to roll over onto her feet! Alexis runs over to Candice, but she sweeps the leg and drops into a cover!

ONEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: Alexis quickly kicks out, and Candice tries to take control! She slides to her feet, before running to Alexis! Alexis sweeps the leg, and much like Candice, drops into a cover!

ONEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: Candice kicks out, and both competitors slide to their feet! Alexis raises her foot for a superkick, and Candice lifts up her knee, but they’re both caught and neither move gets delivered!

Rich Russillo: A great back and forth between these two, which doesn’t end with either of them gaining control. It’s clear after their attempts at their signature maneuvers they don’t want to wrestle a ground-based match, and are looking for their strikes already! Alexis and Candice lock up once again, this time Alexis takes control, pushing Candice into the ropes, before whipping her to the other side! Candice does a 180 and inverts the pressure, so Alexis bounces off the ropes instead! Candice bends down, perhaps looking for a back body drop, but Alexis performs a backwards roll over Candice’s back before drop kicking her! Candice stumbles forward and slips through the ropes, putting her in a risky situation!

James Peters: Alexis Chambers looks to have her in her sights, as she looks back and forth between her and the ropes behind! Alexis runs backwards and bounces off the ropes, before going for a suicide div- No! Candice moves out of the way before Alexis can dive! Alexis thinks quickly on her feet though, and leaps over the top rope and lands on the apron, before delivering a huge running kick to Candice Blair’s chest!

Rich Russillo: Alexis begins to climb up the poles that connect the ring post and turnbuckles now, going to the middle one, before performing a moonsault off! She lands on her feet, but Candice is nowhere to be seen! Alexis turns around, this time Candice is the one on the apron! She sprints forward and connects with a huge running hurricanrana, snapping Alexis into the barricade! Ouch. That’s a nasty landing.

Persephone: These two are about to compete in a Chamber match and that’s nasty to you?

James Peters: Candice Blair took a bad fall too, just not as bad. Both of them are down and out, as the referee begins to count!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

FOUR!

James Peters: Candice slowly gets to her knees, whilst holding onto her stomach, probably the place that took most of the force after the impact! She begins to crawl, as the count continues!

FIVE!

SIX!

SEVEN!

Rich Russillo: Candice gets to her feet and rolls into the ring. Alexis has barely moved though!

EIGHT!

Rich Russillo: This could be it! Alexis has only got to her knees!

NINE!

TE-

Rich Russillo: NO! I WAS WRONG! ALEXIS IS ABLE TO SLIDE BACK INTO THE RING!

James Peters: Candice Blair quickly grabs Alexis Chambers by the hair and lifts her back up to her feet. She places Alexis in the corner before striking her with multiple chops to the chest! Candice follows up with a shoot kick to the stomach! She continues her assault, laying into Alexis with forearm strikes, just to wear her down!

Rich Russillo: Alexis Chambers slumps down in the turnbuckles, as Candice Blair rains down strikes onto her! Candice doesn’t allow her to fall completely down however, pulling her back up to her feet, before irish whipping her to the other side! Alexis Chamber simply falls down onto her face though, she appears to be out of it.

James Peters: Candice Blair looks satisfied with her work, smiling at Alexis falling down. She slowly approaches, and shoots the half, before coverin- WAIT! ALEXIS WAS PLAYING POSSUM! SHE COUNTERS WITH A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THR-

Rich Russillo: CANDICE BLAIR KICKS OUT, AND NOW BOTH OF THEM SLIDE TO THEIR FEET! ‘LIGHTS OUT’ SUPERKICK FROM ALEXIS CHAMBERS! NO! CANDICE SIDESTEPS! BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE FROM CANDICE BLAIR! ALEXIS SIDESTEPS! BACKSTABBER FROM ALEXIS, ROLLING INTO A CROSSFACE!!! CANDICE COULD TAP RIGHT HERE!

James Peters: SHE SEEMINGLY HAS NOWHERE TO GO! IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, TRAPPED IN THE CROSSFACE, CANDICE BLAIR HAS NO ESCAPE BUT THE ROPES! WITH ONE ARM SHE SCRATCHES AND CLAWS TOWARDS THE ROPES, BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE ENOUGH! ALEXIS CHAMBERS HAS THAT CROSSFACE LOCKED IN BETTER THAN MOST CAN, BUT CANDICE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE UP!

Rich Russillo: SHE CONTINUES CRAWLING, GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE ROPES! ALL SHE NEEDS IS TO GRAB IT, AND SHE’S OUT! CANDICE REACHES CLOSER, BUT ALEXIS PULLS HER BACK SLIGHTLY!

Referee: Break the hold!

Rich Russillo: BREAK THE HOLD?! OH MY! CANDICE BLAIR GOT ONE FINGERTIP ON THE ROPES JUST BEFORE SHE WAS PULLED BACK! ALEXIS CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT SHE SEES! HOW ON EARTH DID SHE ESCAPE??

James Peters: ALEXIS LOOKS BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE REFEREE AND CANDICE, BEFORE RUSHING TO THE CORNER AND STOMPING HER FOOT! CANDICE SLOWLY RISES TO HER FEET, AND ALEXIS NOTICES… ‘LIGHTS OUT’ SUPERKICK!! IT’S OVER! ALEXIS SLIDES INTO A COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: WHAT!?!? CANDICE KICKS OUT!

Rich Russillo: But notice how quickly Alexis made this match do a 180, going from being beaten up time and time again to taking control with the snap of her fingers. I’m sure Terry will be happy with her performance tonight. Alexis slowly stands back up, as Candice lies there, still knocked out. Perhaps the kick out was on instinct?

Persephone: Instinct? All she did was lift her arm.

James Peters: Well, the worst thing a wrestler can hear is a 3 count when their shoulders are down. I’ve met a lot of people who didn’t even know they kicked out, or that they were being pinned.

Persephone: Whatever.

James Peters: :wow:

Rich Russillo: Alexis Chambers quickly moves over to the corner, and uses the turnbuckles to pick herself up, whilst Candice is barely stirring to life. All Candice can do is crawl right now, whereas Alexis has an entire move planned… Candice gets to her knees… OH MY! ‘FOH’ SHINING WIZARD-

James Peters: NO! CANDICE BLAIR CAUGHT ALEXIS BY HER LEGS, AND NOW SHE FLIPS HER INTO A BOSTON CRAB! A SUBMISSION OF HER OWN LOCKED IN, BUT ALEXIS CHAMBERS QUICKLY COUNTERS! SHE PULLS HER LEGS DOWN AND TRANSITIONS INTO A ROLL UP HOLD!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: CANDICE KICKS OUT! BUT ALEXIS CHAMBERS WASN’T PLANNING ON THAT BEING THE FINISH! SHE ROLLS BACKWARDS TO HER FEET BEFORE KNOCKING CANDICE DOWN WITH A RUNNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK! BUT CANDICE DUCKS, AND ROLLS ALEXIS TO THE FLOOR! SHE THEN TRANSITIONS INTO A SNAP DDT, TAKING ALEXIS CHAMBERS DOWN COMPLETELY!

James Peters: CANDICE BLAIR HOLDS ONTO ALEXIS’ HEAD, AND ROLLS BACK TO HER FEET, BEFORE DELIVERING A SECOND SNAP DDT!  BUT SHE HANGS ON, ONCE MORE, AS SHE PULLS ALEXIS ALL THE WAY UP TO HER FEET… SHE’S GOING FOR IT… ‘CANDY DESTROYER’-

Rich Russillo: BUT ALEXIS CHAMBERS COUNTERS, REMAINING ON HER FEET, BEFORE RUNNING BACKWARDS AND DRIVING CANDICE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BACK FIRST! THAT’S GONNA HURT! ALEXIS CHAMBERS DRAGS CANDICE AWAY FROM THE CORNER, BEFORE CLIMBING UP HERSELF!

James Peters: EVEN THOUGH SHE CAN’T PHYSICALLY SEE HER, ALEXIS CHAMBERS HAS CANDICE BLAIR IN HER SIGHTS! IF SHE CAN HIT THIS MOVE IT MAY ALL BE OVER FOR HER, AND SHE WILL LOSE THE SPECIALISTS CHAMBER PREVIEW MATCH! ALEXIS CHAMBERS STANDS ON THE TOP ROPE… ‘HEART STOPPER’ MOONSAULT!!!!! NO! CANDICE BLAIR IS ABLE TO DODGE! ALEXIS SPLATS AGAINST THE GROUND AND CANDICE LOOKS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE! SHE SPRINTS FORWARD TO A KNEELING ALEXIS CHAMBERS BEFORE DELIVERING A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TAKING HER DOWN! SHE QUICKLY SLIDES INTO A COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: ALEXIS CHAMBERS POWERS OUT OF IT! CANDICE BLAIR DOESN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE’S TRIED EVERYTHING TO PUT HER AWAY AND NOTHING SEEMS TO DO THE TRICK! SHE NEEDS TO THINK FAST OR ELSE ALEXIS CHAMBERS WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE CONTROL AGAIN!

James Peters: CANDICE BLAIR CRAWLS ON TOP OF HER, BEFORE DELIVERING MULTIPLE STRIKES TO THE HEAD! CANDICE STOPS AS QUICKLY AS SHE STARTED, BEFORE GRABBING ALEXIS BY THE HEAD, AND DRAGGING HER TO THE CORNER! SHE DRIVES HER HEAD INTO THE TURNBUCKLES OVER AND OVER, JUST TRYING TO KNOCK HER OUT, OR DO MORE DAMAGE TO HER! EITHER WAY, IT COULD POSSIBLY HELP HER COME OUT ON TOP!

Rich Russillo: Alexis cannot do anything to save herself right now, she’s just being brutalized with that turnbuckle. Candice Blair finally stops, but pulls Alexis back in the process. She’s going to finish it here! She climbs to the top rope, and I think what she’s going to do here! Alexis sits up, and stares at Candice, without anything to do…

James Peters: DIVING METEORA!! SHE CRUSHES ALEXIS’ HEAD ONCE MORE AGAINST THE FLOOR, USING BOTH OF HER KNEES! BUT SHE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE DONE, AS SHE ROLLS OFF OF ALEXIS, BACK TO THE CORNER! SHE CLIMBS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE, BEFORE DIVING OFF AGAIN! ANOTHER DIVING METEORA!!! ALEXIS CHAMBERS IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT, AS CANDICE BLAIR TRANSITIONS INTO A COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

Rich Russillo: ALEXIS KICKS OUT! I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE FOUND A WAY OUT OF IT, BUT SHE DID IT! CANDICE BLAIR DOESN’T EVEN LOOK SHOCKED AT THIS POINT, THE ONLY EMOTION ON HER FACE IS SHEER RAGE! CANDICE GRABS ALEXIS CHAMBERS AND AGAIN BEGINS TO DRIVE HER KNEE INTO HER FACE! SHE’S NOW JUST DRIVING HER KNEE INTO ALEXIS’ FACE TO MAKE SURE SHE’S BEEN PUT AWAY! KNEE AFTER KNEE AFTER KNEE, HEARING THE THUNDEROUS SLAPS OF HER KNEE CONNECTING WITH FLESH RINGS THROUGHOUT THE ARENA!

James Peters: Alexis Chambers wasn’t the only one to shift the dynamic of the match on its head. She was able to take control, as was Candice, in a much more brutal way. If she continues with this, Alexis Chambers will be completely helpless. OH GOD! Candice drives the toe of her boot into the side of Alexis’ head, and the whiplash of her neck after it probably makes the pain of the attack worse! Candice Blair is planning the finish right here, as she lifts up the unconscious Alexis Chambers and prepares to hit the Candy Destroyer-

Rich Russillo: But Alexis Chambers falls to the floor, before Candice can even flip forward and deliver the piledriver! She’s completely out of it, there’s no way she can get back up on her own and finish it. Candice Blair picks her up, and places her between her legs again. This is it. It’s over… CANDY DESTROYER!!!!! –

James Peters: She… stops? She doesn’t jump, what on earth is she doing? She’s looking up the ramp… OH MY GOD! KASEY KAOS IS WALKING DOWN, STARING AT CANDICE BLAIR! NOTHING BUT STARING, BUT SHE DOESN’T SEEM TO HAVE STRUCK FEAR IN HER EYES! KASEY KAOS CLIMBS ONTO THE APRON, AS CANDICE STARES AT HER, AS IF SHE WANTS KASEY TO WATCH HER WIN! CANDY DESTROYER-

Rich Russillo: ALEXIS SITS INTO A ROLL UP! SHE’S GONNA STEAL IT!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: She did it! After every knee to the head, after being brutalized, Alexis Chambers came out on top in something that could widely be considered an upset! Or even, an assist from Kasey Kaos!

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… ALEXIIIIIIIIIIS CHAAAAAAAAAAAMBEEEEEEEEEERS!!!!!

(‘Walking the Wire’ by Imagine Dragons hits the speakers, as Alexis Chambers crawls off of Candice Blair with a shocked expression on her face. She stands up as the referee raises her arm.)

Rich Russillo: Speak of the devil… OH MY GOD! KASEY KAOS HITS ALEXIS CHAMBERS WITH HER SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT OVER HER HEAD! ALEXIS CHAMBERS FALLS TO THE FLOOR, UNCONSCIOUS! THERE’S NO WAY SHE’S GETTING UP FROM THAT!

James Peters: KASEY KAOS THEN GRABS CANDICE BLAIR, AND LOCKS IN THE ‘KAOS REIGNS’ SUBMISSION! CANDICE BLAIR IS TRAPPED WITH NOWHERE TO GO, UNTIL SHE’S LEFT TO PASS OUT!

Rich Russillo: CANDICE BLAIR’S ARMS FLAIL AROUND, UNTIL THEY DROP TO THE FLOOR! KASEY KAOS HAS JUST TAKEN BOTH COMPETITORS OUT! SHE FINALLY LETS GO OF THE SUBMISSION, BEFORE PLACING CANDICE ON TOP OF ALEXIS, AND RAISES HER TITLE UP HIGH!

(As Kasey raises her title, standing on top of Candice and Alexis, Voltage fades to commercial.)

(Commercial for WWE 2k21 now coming to the PS5.)

(El Landerson Jr. and Adriana Landerson the kids of El Landerson are backstage on Voltage talking when the camera closes in to listen in on their conversation.)

El Jr.: Listen, Adriana I know that you have a crush on Myles, but we both know that pops isn’t going to go for that, besides, this doesn’t need to become a thing, alright. I have crushes too that I will not explore, it’s innocent, besides, Myles kills kangaroos, you don’t want to bring a guy home like that to mom and dad, you know how much they love animals. We shouldn’t even be here, but you know that I will do whatever I can to protect you, okay?

Adriana: But I like him El. I think he is so hot and dreamy.

El Jr.: You do know he is dating Minerva and if she ever found out, well, she will probably hurt you. He is not worth it, I know the Championship makes him more attractive, but he is not the kind of guy you want to date. Gingers have no soul.

Adriana: They don’t?

El Jr.: No, I promise you…..

(The two young siblings do not realize that Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin are both listening into their conversation, as they make their appearance, El Jr. quickly stands in front of his sister to protect her from them.)

Jesse Barlow: So, the rumors are true? Adriana has the hots for Myles? Thinking about making a play for him, huh?

El Jr.: Hey, this is none of your business, my sister and I were having a conversation and you were not a part of it. She has no interest in Myles, he kills kangaroos and is dating a witch, we don’t deal very well with brujeria. So please, go.

Adriana: Yes, could you like please mind your own business?

Hannah: Okay, we will mind our own business, but it is not like we overheard Myles and Minerva arguing about you. Come on Jesse.

Adriana: Wait…. What are you two talking about?

Jesse Barlow: Nah, we are good. Hannah and I are going to go mind our own business now. Come on Hannah, we have better things to do.

El Jr.: Forget them Adriana.

Adriana: No, no… I want to hear this. Please, stay and tell me what you heard?

Jesse Barlow: I thought you wanted us to mind our own business, doll?

Adriana: Please?

El Jr.: Adriana….

Adriana: El, hush for a second alright?

(Jesse and Hannah both look at one another and smirk at one another. Jesse clears his throat before turning back to Adriana.)

Jesse Barlow: Okay, so what we overheard, is Minerva and Myles were already having problems, it had something to do with hot candle wax and the Grand Prix match they were in.

Hannah: One of those two, I think worse.

Jesse Barlow: Basically Myles and Minerva are a lot like ketchup and peas, they don’t mix.

Adriana: I like ketchup in my peas.

Jesse Barlow: Hannah….

Hannah: Don’t worry about the metaphors. Minerva is extremely jealous, and she heard that you liked Myles and so did he, Myles was smitten with the idea that a young, beautiful girl like you would be so into him, and the prospects of having Landerson as a dad, was like what sealed the deal. See, Minerva we all know is trailer park trash. She takes issues with prettier women like you. Myles was upset, so was she and he was ripping into her that he is flattered and likes the idea of dating someone like you, girlfriend.

(El Jr. cuts in, he had heard enough and knows that Jesse and Hannah are only trying to poison her mind.)

El Jr. No, don’t listen to them, Myles and Minerva’s relationship is strong, there is no dissension there. Besides, she eats roadkill and killing kangaroos is like sexy to her.

Adriana: It can be sexy for me too. I can try roadkill, El and…

El Jr.: They are lying to you. They want to break them apart and then set you up, come on, besides dad would not accept him, he is too gringo.

Adriana: No, he is not El! I….

(Hannah cuts them off from bickering….)

Hannah: Okay, enough! This bickering is not going anywhere, why would we come here to tell you lies, Adriana? Jesse and I personally could care less what Myles and Minerva have, we want you to get a chance at the guy you like, because there is trouble in paradise between Minerva and Myles. Besides, I heard her face is being held together by nuts and bolts after Wicked Games, can you imagine when she gets older, how she is going to look, but what I see in you is hotness. Myles likes you and if you want to chase after Myles, I think you should, there is nothing that will stop you from doing it except you.

Jesse Barlow: She is right, Adriana. We wouldn’t be pulling your Landerson tail. Minerva is not right for Myles, you are and besides, we actually are very appreciative of him to give me a National Elite Championship match so we are looking out for him, he needs the shackles of Minerva broken, she is a nasty witch, and could destroy Myles, none of us would want that, right?

Adriana: No… no of course.

Hannah: There is hope, and that is all you can ask for, right?

Adriana: Yes, yes of course!

Hannah: Hang in there, don’t give up the fight, take Myles for yourself, you two would be like Sooooooo kewt together! Gotta go, ta ta.

Jesse Barlow: Never give up the fight. Never abandon hope.

Adriana: I won’t, thank you so much!

(Jesse winks as he and Hannah both turn around and start to walk away, both snickering and giggling leaving Adriana standing there with a huge smile, El Jr., is shaking his head, trying to get to his sister, no believing a thing that Jesse and Hannah said, but the one thing they gave his sister, is hope.)

(Commercial promoting the Rated R&R Show, featuring Ronan Malosi and Ryan Wilson.)

(Voltage fades back in from break and cuts to a pre-taped segment from earlier.)

(Dynasty Elitist, Nina Bravo, is seen entering the picture. She sits down on the seat provided in front of a plain whote background, and someone can be seen fixing a microphone on her shirt. The Russian beauty rolls her eyes, but fixates her eyes on the camera as the narrator begins to speak.)

Narrator: (off-screen) State your name for the record please.

Nina Bravo: My name is Nina “Русская кукла и гордость величайшей страны во всем мире” Bravo and I am number one contender to becoming EAW Specialist Champions, yes. I am only real contender and soon I will be new champion.

(There is nothing but the utmost confidence in Nina’s voice, which is incredible to hear when you factor in that she is the least experienced wrestler out of all the Specialists Championship Chamber contestants.)

Narrator: (off-screen) How long have you been wrestling? What have you accomplished thus far?

Nina Bravo: In Elite Answers Wrestling LLC? Three months. In professional wrestling overall? Three months. Я вундеркинд!

Narrator: (off-screen) Did you ever envision yourself competing for the biggest company in the world?

Nina Bravo: I literally inherited the vision from The Visual Prophet. I was sought after, trained, and built only for EAW superstardom unlike my competitors and their dirty nails and CVS Pharmacy brand shampoo product using behinds.

(Nina shudders at the thought of ever having to buy her shampoo at such a horrible place.)

Narrator: (off-screen) What are your thoughts about your current position in EAW?

Nina Bravo: I am undefeated at FPV matches. I should be known, seen, and treated as proverbial favorite to win at Road to Redemption and seen as the next Specialist Champion.

Narrator: (off-screen) What does competing in the Specialists Chamber mean to you?

Nina Bravo: It is meaning a lot. I am more than capable of beating anyone outside of Extreme Elimination Chamber. From Kasey to Lisa. Inside? I know it will be Nina Bravo’s chance to show everyone how good Nina is. It means everything to do so. Я очень серьезно!

Narrator: (off-screen) Who’s your biggest competition in this match? Why?

(Nina scoffs at the question, as if the answer should be completely obvious.)

Nina Bravo: My biggest competitor is myself. Me. Nina Bravo. If not me then it Is the current champion. She is the only one I see as someone who may have some talent among the challenges I am set to be facing. Even then she is not on my level if I am on my A game. I am prodigy. I am superior than all these lasses. I sparr with grown men and I put grizzly bears in headlocks. None of these girls can measure up. Harlow stinks, Alexis is ass, Candice is blandness, Lisa is a loser, and Kasey is a clown face chicken chewing cunt. I will dance over their out cold cadavers and raise the Specialist title above my head as the victor. Hail Mother Russia.

Narrator: (off-screen) What does the title of Specialists Champion mean to you?

Nina Bravo: It would give me, Nina Bravo, something I deserve, and something I work very hard towards. To hear my name announced as Specialists Champion would bring smile to my face, and then I rub it in the faces of everyone.

(Nina cracks a smirk, clearly envisioning herself holding up that historic championship.)

Narrator: (off-screen) How would you elevate the belt?

Nina Bravo: By bringing the influence of the greatest country this world has ever seen. By ruling this division like Vladimir Putin rules over USA from his home. By showing you all what true strength is and removing the stench of sewer water and dry used tampons left by Kasey Kaos and bringing prestige to the Specialist Championship.

Narrator: (off-screen) Anything you want to say to your fellow chamber participants?

(A serious look crosses Nina’s face and she stares right into the camera.)

Nina Bravo: Be prepared. Sleep well. Eat your vegetables. You will need everything you can muster to out duel The Russian Doll. From Russia with love! 🇷🇺

Narrator: (off-screen) Thank you for your time.

Nina Bravo: The pleasure is all yours.

(Nina stands up, removing her microphone, and exiting stage left, as the scene fades out.)

(Voltage cuts back to the ringside area.)

(Standing inside the ring after the break from in-ring action is Bella Braxton, with a microphone raised to call the next match!)

Bella Braxton: The following singles contest is scheduled for-

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(“Overlord” by Suicide Silence hits and the crowd begins to boo as Shane Gates makes his way out, with Lizzie the Graveyard Doll in his hands as he begins down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring first, from Huntington Beach, California… weighing in at 213 pounds… SHAAAANE GAAAAATES!!

James Peters: Shane missed out on a chance to qualify for the Extreme Elimination Chamber the other week, and I’m sure he won’t be wanting to see Lizzie used against him the way she was in his match against Azrael!

Persephone: I don’t like the vibes that thing gives off!

Rich Russillo: Well, the vibe that Shane is giving off is that he’s pissed and he’ll be sure to take that out on Minerva, surely, to get his message out that he won’t let losing deter him. It just might prove to be fuel to his fire, and who knows what that could mean for everyone else!

(Shane enters the ring after having set Lizzie aside. “Blood, Milk, & Sky” by White Zombie takes over to a mixed reaction, but mostly cheers, when Minerva appears on stage with nothing but a cold stare in Gates’ direction.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, making her way to the ring, from the Florida Everglades… weighing in at 122 pounds… MIIINEERRVAAAA!!!

James Peters: This should be an interesting match-up as these two share some similar perspectives about what they think of the world, feeling like outcasts. And for Minerva, going into this with her heated feud with Sienna looming over this, I’m sure she’ll want to send a clearer message that she’s not to be taken lightly!

Persephone: I’m just glad that this bitch isn’t on commentary, she was totally creeping me out last Voltage!

James Peters: :mjpls: If anything, she was keeping you in check; if you ask me, we need her on commentary more often.

Persephone: Good thing no one ever asks you for shit then.

Rich Russillo: Don’t worry about Minerva, if she tries anything tonight, I’ll protect you 😤 💪

Persephone: Wow. Gee. Thanks. I feel soooo safe right now, you have no idea. 🙄

Rich Russillo: Glad to be of service! Minerva knows she couldn’t fuck with me even on my worst day 😤

(Minerva comes around the ring and onto the apron before entering through the ropes. Not showing much emotion, it’d be hard to tell what’s going through her mind if the EAW Universe didn’t already know her to be one of the hardest-hitting Elitists around today. Bringing that against Shane Gates, who’s continuously out to prove himself against anyone and everyone, is the moment they’ve both been waiting for all week and the referee calls for the bell!)

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: Minerva and Shane here going to lock up- SHANE RUNS MINERVA BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, CATCHING HER COMPLETELY OFF GUARD! SHANE STIFLES ANY CHANCE OF HER GETTING IN ANY OFFENSE AT THE MOMENT, AS HE LOOKS TO CRUSH HER MIDSECTION WITH SHOULDER THRUST AFTER SHOULDER THRUST!

Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE’S CALLS FOR THE ACTION TO COME OUT THE CORNER ARE IGNORED, AD SHANE COMES DOWN ON MINERVA WITH A MULTITUDE OF KICKS, AND MINERVA HAS NO TIME TO DEFEND HERSELF! GATES IS HOLDING NOTHING BACK HERE IN THE EARLY SECONDS OF THIS MATCH-UP ALREADY, AND IT’S JUST THE KIND OF NECESSARY THING TO DEFEAT SOMEONE LIKE MINERVA; HE’LL HAVE TO KEEP IT UP, THOUGH!

Persephone: After having to deal with her more than I would’ve liked to the other week, I’m really not opposed to that being the outcome. But at the same time, I also wouldn’t mind seeing these two literally try to kill each other; I’d like to think that they’re definitely the type to go that far and the less people in Rex’s way for when he returns, which I seriously hope is soon because I can’t keep doing this shit without him, the better!

James Peters: Shane finally relents but only to prop Minerva up on the top turnbuckle, and Minerva manages to land a swift kick to the face! Minerva coming up from her seated position to stand on the middle turnbuckle as Gates comes back her way, and she pulls him in to start hammering down on his head with a series of fists! Minerva rakes his eyes and she seems set to take off- BUT SHANE CATCHES HER IN THE AIR AND TOSSES HER WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY-TO- BELLY SUPLEX! THE FORMER UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION CRASHES TO THE MAT BUT GETS UP AND TURNS OVER INTO A CHARGING LARIAT, SHANE NEARLY DECAPITATING MINERVA WITH THAT ONE!

Rich Russillo: Shane now lifts her up and slings her over his shoulder before taking off to the corner, but Minerva slides down his back and shoves him into the turnbuckles! Minerva batters him over the back with forearm after forearm until Shane manages to kick her away! Shane comes barreling out the corner but Minerva takes him off his feet with a drop toe-hold and quickly comes down at the middle of his back with a knee drop, then going further up with one across the back of his neck!

Persephone: Minerva plans on wasting my fucking time tonight because she obviously hates me, by dropping down into a submission and pulling back on Shane’s head; even I know this camel clutch thing or whatever won’t make him tap out. But maybe it’s not all pointless as she digs her fingers into Shane’s eyes, no doubt looking to send a message to Sienna while at the same time inflicting pain to Shane!

James Peters: That may be the case, but Shane is already trying to power to his feet! Minerva is blatantly disregarding the official’s demands for the illegal maneuver but I don’t think it’ll matter much, as she starts clubbing Shane over his head! But Shane finally reaches up and grabs her wrist, pulling her down closer and flinging her to the mat! Shane looks for a running senton but Minerva rolls out the way! Minerva jumps onto his shoulders as he tries to get up and she goes for a hurricanrana-

Rich Russillo: But Shane blocks it! He stays on his feet and he takes off toward the ropes! WITH MINERVA STILL UP ON HIS SHOULDERS, SHANE CHARGES TO THE ROPES AND LOOKS TO POWERBOMB MINERVA OUT THE RING! WAIT, NO! MINERVA IS ABLE TO FOLLOW THROUGH AND SHE SENDS HIM OUT THE RING! Shane misses the apron and falls to the floor, while Minerva pulls herself up and goes to the turnbuckles where she goes to position herself to leap-

Minerva: (off-mic) What the hell?

James Peters: :lupe:

(Minerva stops as she realizes that, down on the ground next to Gates, Lizzie has moved to make the appearance of somehow being in her path despite being laid on the ground, but as for when and how that happened, no one seems to know.)

Persephone: That little bitch is definitely possessed and by what, I have no idea! And I’m not even talking about Minerva!

Rich Russillo: That doll has quickly become an odd fixture in Shane’s matches- AND SHANE IS GETTING BACK INTO HIS, AS HE GETS ONTO THE APRON AND STRIKES MINERVA DOWN FROM THE TURNBUCKLES! He utilizes the distraction to try to get quickly back in control as Minerva struggles to keep her balance but she begins to battle back, trying to fight Shane off! Shane, however, manages to kick Minerva in the gut and he pulls her in! SHANE LIFTS MINERVA UP INTO THE AIR BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO COME DOWN BEHIND HIM AND SHE TAKES HIM TO THE APRON WITH A NECKBREAKER!

James Peters: Both Elitists crash to the ground on the outside and I’m sure that Shane would’ve just narrowly missed falling onto Lizzie if she hadn’t already somehow moved again :lupe:!!! Minerva is the first to pull herself up with the use of the apron and before Shane can even bring himself to fully stand, Minerva is already taking advantage by kicking him in the gut! Minerva firing off with a right hand just after that and another kick, getting in consecutive shots to back him up- AND MINERVA SLAMS HIS HEAD RIGHT OFF THE POST!!

Rich Russillo: But it’s not enough to take him off his feet! Shane merely stumbles back and seems to rebound almost instantly and he throws a heavy punch at Minerva- BUT SHE DUCKS AND SHANE’S FIST COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL RING POST! SHANE TRIES TO CONSOLE HIS HURTING HAND BUT MINERVA DOESN’T ALLOW MUCH TIME, AS SHE PULLS HIS ARM AROUND THE POST AND MINERVA GETS HIM IN A HANGING CROSS ARMBREAKER! MINERVA USES THE RING POST TO HER ADVANTAGE AND SHANE CAN’T SHAKE HER OFF!!

James Peters: MINERVA IS ABUSING THE REFEREE’S WARNINGS BY BLATANTLY IGNORING HIS CALLS AND SHE’S GOING TO BE HOLDING ON FOR AS LONG AS SHE CAN! THE RING OFFICIAL BEGINS A COUNT AND SHANE IS TRYING TO PUSH OFF THE POST WITH HIS OTHER HAND, BUT MINERVA ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE! MINERVA HAS THAT LOCKED IN TIGHT AND IT’S ONLY AT A COUNT OF FOUR THAT MINERVA FINALLY DROPS OFF!

Persephone: Of course, she wasn’t going to get herself disqualified, which was pretty lame on her part, but I think the damage intended has been done as Shane turns away clutching his arm, but Minerva, unfortunately, isn’t finished! She comes around and slams his head off the apron before sending him into the ring, where Gates tries to push himself up but Minerva knocks him down with a low dropkick to the arm she just targeted, causing him to lose that support and fall over! That sadly isn’t stopping Shane, however, as he tries to get up again but Minerva puts him down and out with a scissor kick across the back of the neck! Please let this three-count be it!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWOOOO-

Persephone: 😐

Rich Russillo: No one can say for sure what Shane’s feeling in his arm right now, but I’m not surprised that he got his shoulder up! Shane has been adamant about being a competitor that won’t be overlooked and easily put away; this isn’t over for Minerva or himself just yet!

James Peters: Minerva grabs a hold of his arm and twists into an arm wringer, yanking and pulling on that arm like she’s trying to force it right out its socket! The former Universal Women’s Champion turns the arm forward while keeping her hold applied, seemingly planning on making sure that she can take away as much of Gates’ offense as possible; he can’t be a threat if he’s only got one arm! Minerva uses the distance between them to land a few simultaneous kicks to the midsection, doubling Shane over before lunging forward with a knee strike to the side of the head!

Rich Russillo: Shane drops to a knee, but it’s with a hold still on Shane’s wrist that Minerva brings him to his feet- but Gates suddenly chops the hold and breaks Minerva’s grasp on him! He shoves her back into the ropes and Minerva comes springing off them already looking for an attack but Gates fends her off with a spinning heel kick!

Persephone: And I’m pretty sure we just saw Minerva’s head go all the way around before she hit the mat! But for some reason, she won’t stay the hell down, and her act of idiocy gets her what she deserves when Shane surges forward and connects with a massive clothesline, before he hits a spinning side kick that Minerva runs into once she’s back on her feet! After the shit Minerva did to target his arm, Shane obviously seems to know he can’t let her retain too much control of the match and that brings him to launch Minerva across the ring with a german suplex!

James Peters: Minerva ends up in the corner and uses the ropes to try to quickly pull herself up- SHANE GATES SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AND THE BACK OF MINERVA’S HEAD HITS THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AS IF SHANE WAS TRYING TO PUT HER RIGHT THROUGH IT! Minerva drops seated in the corner and turning her head away to cover her face but Shane is already back on the attack, laying into her with a concerning amount of stomps in the corner in such quick succession and force; Minerva ends up down on the mat and there’s a knee drop to the face! Minerva hasn’t made a move since that dropkick, and Shane takes the time to exit from the ring just to reach back inside, grabbing one of Minerva’s legs and her hair to bend her around the ring post in a modified bow and arrow stretch!

Rich Russillo: And now we can see why Minerva hasn’t done anything; that dropkick was worse than it looked! With all that noticeable blood, it’s clear she’s got a busted mouth! But Shane’s partially got her foot touching the back of her head and he just might snap her in half; the human body isn’t meant to be contorted like this! But for him, this clearly has become about making sure he’s inflicted as much pain as possible and I’m sure she’s feeling it as much as I’m uncomfortable just having to witness it!

Persephone: Just before the referee can get to five, Shane gets two handfuls of hair and flings her to the outside, whipping her to the floor! But he hasn’t let go just yet, and he launches her into the barricade! Minerva uses the guardrail to bring herself into a kneeling position where she uses the back of her hand to wipe away at her mouth just as Shane goes to grab her, but Minerva tries to fight him off with a back elbow! The referee inside the ring is completely oblivious to the fact she just struck him between the legs and she takes that as her chance to turn around, punching him in the face!

James Peters: Minerva gets to her feet and lays into Gates with a forearm, rattling him all the way back to the apron before Shane shoves her away! Minerva collides with the barricade when Shane comes rushing at her but he’s on the receiving end of a kick to the face, though not to be deterred he comes at her again and Minerva finally sends him down with two! Minerva climbs up onto the barricade, steadying herself-

Rich Russillo: MINERVA JUMPS OFF AT SHANE ONCE HE’S BACK ON HIS FEET BUT MINERVA GETS CAUGHT ONCE AGAIN! SHANE HOLDS ONTO HER AND TURNS RIGHT AROUND TO THE STEPS, AND HE SLAMS HER RIGHT INTO THE FRONT OF THEM WITH A SPINEBUSTER! MINERVA ARCHES UP AFTER BEING DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE EDGES OF THOSE STEPS AND SHANE KNOCKS HER RIGHT BACK DOWN WITH A SUPERKICK!! KILLSHOT ON THE STEPS!!

James Peters: MINERVA HAS NOWHERE TO GO WHEN SHANE PEELS HER OFF THE STEPS AND RUNS HER RIGHT INTO THE APRON! Minerva’s found herself in the precarious situation of a match where Shane Gates is in control- AND HE DOES IT ONCE AGAIN! SHANE NOW FINALLY BRINGS HER INTO THE RING AND GOES FOR THE COVER AFTER ROLLING HER UNDER THE ROPES!!

OOONNNEEE!!

TTTWWWWOOOO!!!

TTTTHHHHHRRRRRR-

Persephone: Minerva kicks out and Shane merely takes his time getting to his feet, apparently set on dragging this out and I’m sure it’s just to spite me! Shane steps down her face, dragging his boot back and forth across it and Minerva’s practically helpless as she tries to push his leg away to get him off of her. Gates finally relents while that weird ass Graveyard Doll, Lizzie, has somehow found a spot on the apron sitting perched as she apparently watches the action; this doll has got to go, take it away I don’t like it!

James Peters: Say it a little louder and maybe she’ll take you away instead; but we can only hope! Meanwhile, Gates has dragged Minerva up to her feet and whatever he’s tried to just attempt, Minerva’s blocked it by trapping his arms and she strikes with a headbutt! Minerva puts all caution aside as she doesn’t hold back, taking him all the way to the ropes with those headbutts! The former Tag Team Champion lets up by releasing his arms before trying to lunge at him, but it’s countered by Shane, sending her over the top rope!

Rich Russillo: But Minerva lands on the apron and ducks a clothesline, catching the the arm and turning it over before dropping down to the apron to snap it over the top rope! Shane stumbles away after that targeted attack and Minerva slips back into the ring as quick as she can- COMING FROM BEHIND WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK! SHANE GOES SURGING FORWARD INTO THE ROPES AND COMES BACK LOOKING TO POUNCE AT MINERVA MID-AIR BUT MINERVA PLANTS HIM WITH A SPINEBUSTER!

James Peters: THE VIRTUAL CROWD IS ALL CHEERS AS MINERVA BEATS SHANE UP TO HIS FEET AND ROCKS HIM WITH AN UPPERCUT! MINERVA KNOWS SHE HAS HIM STUNNED AND LOOKS TO KEEP CONTROL, THROWING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH WITH DIRECT PRECISION AT HIS FACE! MINERVA LOOKS TO SUPLEX HIM BACK TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AFTER GETTING HIM TO THE ROPES, BUT SHANE STRIKES HER OVER HER BACK, WHICH HAD TAKEN A SIGNIFICANT BLOW ON THOSE STEPS!

Rich Russillo: SHANE TRIES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE BY GOING FOR A SUPLEX OF HIS OWN BUT MINERVA WRIGGLES HER WAY BACK DOWN TO HER FEET AFTER BEING LIFTED UP INTO THE AIR! BUT THERE’S A KNEE TO THE GUT FROM SHANE AND THAT JUST MIGHT BE WHAT DOES IT! SHANE LIFTING HER INTO THE AIR AGAIN BUT MINERVA COMES DOWN BEHIND HIM AND SHE KEEPS A HOLD ON HIM TO HAVE HIM BENT BACKWARD! TWILIGHT CONNECTS!! MINERVA GETS HIM DOWN BUT SHE ISN’T GOING FOR THE PIN JUST YET!! MINERVA DRAGS HIM INTO POSITION AND SHE HEADS TO THE CORNER, FOLLOWING THROUGH AND EXECUTING THE HELL’S BELLS!! MINERVA CONNECTS WITH A MOONSAULT AND SHE STAYS ON TOP FOR THE COVER!!

OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEE!!!

Persephone: Shane kicks out after that combination of moves and Minerva clearly thought this one should’ve been over; I would’ve preferred for it to be over a while ago since I don’t care who wins, but we can’t all get what we want, apparently! She takes Shane by his head and brings him to kneel, starting to deliver knee strike after knee strike to that already ugly face and she’s doing everything she can to make sure she can to leave him incapacitated, maybe even concussed if we’re lucky so I never have to see that doll ever again!

James Peters: I’ve lost count of how many knees Shane’s just taken but Minerva has been nothing but relentless! Minerva throwing another- but Shane catches her leg! Minerva finds herself struggling to stay up as Shane slowly rises to his feet, avoiding any hits Minerva tries to land to get away- AND SHANE YANKS HER FORWARD INTO A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! SHANE AND MINERVA RACING TO THEIR FEET WITH SHANE LOOKING FOR A BIG BOOT BUT MINERVA DUCKS UNDER IT! SHANE SPINS AROUND AND TAKES A KICK TO THE STOMACH, WHICH FOLLOWS UP WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER BUT SHANE SLIPS OUT OF THAT!

Rich Russillo: SHANE DUCKING UNDER A LARIAT ATTEMPT AND LIFTS MINERVA OFF HER FEET! SHANE DROPS INTO AN OVER-THE-SHOULDER GUTBUSTER AND MINERVA IMMEDIATELY GOES LOOKING FOR REPRIEVE! SHE STUMBLES BACK AGAINST THE ROPES WITH HER ARM HELD OVER HER MIDSECTION AND GATES COMES CHARGING AT HER TO TAKE HER OVER THE ROPES WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! BUT IT SEEMS MINERVA MERELY FLIPPED OVER THE ROPES BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT, AS SHE REMAINS ON THE APRON WHILE SHANE GOES OUT TO THE FLOOR!

James Peters: Shane gets to his feet while Minerva realizes she has to move quickly and tries to take a swing at him with a kick but Gates ducks! Minerva jumps over a swipe at her legs and hops off the apron away from Shane only from him to try to charge from behind- SHANE COLLIDES SHOULDER-FIRST WITH THE STEPS, MINERVA BAITED HIM IN! THE IMPACT RATTLES THE RING AND MINERVA QUICKLY GOES TO LIFT THE TOP HALF OF THE STEPS, RAISING IT AND TRAPPING GATES’ HAND UNDER IT! MINERVA HEADING UP THE STEPS NOW AND SHE JUMPS DOWN, CRUSHING SHANE’S HAND!

Rich Russillo: SHANE CLEARLY TRIES TO PULL AWAY BUT MINERVA HAS HIS HAND STUCK! MINERVA WITH A STOMP TO THE STEPS NOW BEFORE COMING DOWN AND THAT LEAVES SHANE VULNERABLE TO A WICKED KICK TO THE HEAD BEFORE SLAMMING HIS FACE INTO THE SIDE OF THE STEPS; NOW HIS HAND IS FINALLY FREED! MINERVA ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING AND SHANE IMMEDIATELY CREATES SOME DISTANCE, GOING TO THE CORNER AND MINERVA AIMS TO FOLLOW WITH A LEAPING CORNER CLOTHESLINE!

Persephone: Minerva climbs up over him onto the middle turnbuckle and starts raining down with punches, and I can tell she’s fed up with how Shane has managed to stay in this. She’s completely ignoring the referee and if he’s not gonna disqualify her, then I’m not sure why he’s even trying to talk any sense to her. Minerva is persistent and ruthless with her strikes, but Shane suddenly slips out under her and pulls down on her leg, sending her face-first into the top turnbuckle!

James Peters: Minerva has no time to react after when Shane takes her to the mat with a back suplex! But he isn’t done! Shane sees his opportunity and he looks to strike by dragging her up to her feet- SHANE HITS THE DARKNESS BELOW AND MINERVA CRASHES TO THE MAT IN A HEAP! MINERVA IS DOWN AND SEEMINGLY OUT WHILE SHANE TURNS OVER TO MAKE THE COVER!!

OOOONNNNEEE!!!

TTTWWWWOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRREEEEE!!!!

Rich Russillo: MINVERA KICKS OUT! For the first time in this match, Shane appears to be frustrated with Minerva as well, as he knows that a win over Minerva would be something that truly puts everyone on notice! Minerva hasn’t made it easy and neither has he, but he’s stayed in this and worked to have an answer for Minerva just as much she’s tried to have for him!

James Peters: Shane now gets to his feet and he shakes his hand, obviously feeling the effects of Minerva’s attacks on his whole arm! Minerva has turned over and Shane stalks her to the ropes, Minerva shaking her head as she spots Lizzie, who’s somehow managed to make it over and sit just to the side of Minerva on the apron?! Is this her trying to cause some kind of distraction for Shane?!

Persephone: I’m telling you, it’s demons! Or Satan! Or a cult curse! Really, I just know it’s creepy and I just don’t play with that occult shit!

Rich Russillo: Shane allows Minerva to make it to the ropes and Minerva pulls herself up- but she’s got a hold of Lizzie and Shane looks furious! Shane goes to rip her away from Minerva and thinks to set her aside- BUT MINERVA STRIKES WITH A DROPKICK TO THE LEG! SHANE DROPS DOWN ONTO ONE KNEE AND MINERVA FOLLOWS UP WITH A SHINING WIZARD! NO! SHANE DUCKS AND MINERVA FALLS TO THE CANVAS! SHANE TURNS OVER AND UP TO HIS FEET, FLOORING MINERVA WITH A HUGE KICK!!! SHANE SETS LIZZIE IN THE CORNER AND GOES BACK TO GRAB MINERVA, LIFTING HER UP!! RECKONING BY SHANE GATES TO MINERVA!!

James Peters: BUT IT’S BLOCKED!! MINERVA HITS AT THE ARM AND HAND SHE’S TARGETED AT TIMES THROUGHOUT THE MATCH, AND SHANE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO LET GO! MINERVA DROPS TO HER FEET AND SHANE GETS KICKED IN THE STOMACH!! MINERVA SPOTTING HER OPENING AND SHE USES ALL SHE’S GOT IN HER TO TAKE SHANE OFF HIS FEET!!! ATLAS FALLS!! MINERVA DROPS HIM ON HIS HEAD AND SHANE IS DOWN!!! MINERVA CRAWLS INTO THE COVER!!!

OOOONNNEEEE!!!

TTTTTWWWWOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Blood, Milk, & Sky” by White Zombie begins to play, and Minerva rises to her feet with the aid of the referee before she’s able to stand on her own.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. MINEERRRRVAAAAA!!!

James Peters: Minerva comes through with a victory over Shane Gates, who was just as clearly determined to use the former champion to send a message, but after a grueling battle, she gets it done!

Rich Russillo: In a back and forth that saw exchanges of the both of them being in control at different points, it seemed like it could’ve gone to either one of them. Shane certainly doesn’t have much to be disappointed about as he proved to be a game challenger against someone like Minerva! But once Minerva found a point to focus on, she made sure it paid off later!

Persephone: Kinda disappointed they didn’t fight to the legit death, but it’s whatever! They obviously wanted to do as much physical damage to each other as they could to leave a lasting impression on each other, if not everyone else as well. Congratulations to Minerva or whatever and all that good stuff, but it would’ve been just as satisfying to be done with it if either one of them could’ve ended it sooner!

(Minerva celebrates her victory in the ring, while Shane has made his way to the outside where Lizzie awaits him on the apron. Once again, it appears that she had moved to that new location seemingly all on her own, and he brings the doll into his possession while he turns to glare from ringside at Minerva in the ring, before the scene fades out.)

(In the backstage area, the scene opens up to the inside of the office of Captain Charisma, where he stands behind his desk while a young woman is seated in the chair in front of it. With a pen in hand, she writes across a piece of paper that’s attached to a clipboard, along with a few others that she’s kept raised with her other hand. Setting them down gently on top of each other, she stands to her feet with an excited smile as Captain Charisma offers his hand, which she excitedly takes and shakes.)

Captain Charisma: And it’s a done deal! Holly Arrow is officially an EAW Elitist, and more importantly, an addition to the Voltage brand that I’m sure is going to showcase a ton of potential as the rest of the season goes on!

Holly Arrow: I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am, but it really means the world to get signed here! Working the independent scene was one thing, but I know EAW is going to be a whole other type of place, and even with knowing that, I’m looking forward to anything and everything that could come my way. I know Voltage was the brand that the likes of Sarah Price broke out and got noticed on last season, and Kasey Kaos, Candice Blair, and Darcy May Morgan have done everything they can to stand out here this season, and I’m hoping that as time goes on, I’ll see some of that same success for myself! There’s so many others to name just as much, like Donovan Duke, who’s getting that shot at the New Breed Championship, and it just makes me want to get into things that much more. I’m really ready to work and ready to start on making my mark!

Captain Charisma: That’s the kind of attitude that I love to see around here! With everything that you’ve done to stand out before EAW and the reputation you went and made for yourself, I couldn’t have been more excited to know that Voltage was going to be where you ended up.

(Holly can’t help but be all smiles as she listens to Captain Charisma explain why he believes signing her to Voltage would be such an asset to his already competitive brand. He takes up the clipboard and sets it aside before coming around the desk, with Holly following beside him as they head toward the door.)

Captain Charisma: With the roster that we’ve got now, I can definitely see you bringing something to the table and having the potential to rise through the ranks as something special. Your work ethic and talent was what got you noticed, and with more eyes than ever on you now, I’m sure you couldn’t let me down!

(Holly grins, her hands noticeably clenched excitedly into fists as she nods, perhaps a little overwhelmed by her own emotions.)

Holly Arrow: I promise I won’t! What you’ll get from me is nothing but my best every time. Plus, I know I couldn’t have arrived at a better time, either, because with Road to Redemption coming up soon, it’s an exciting time to be a part of everything! I can’t say I’m expecting anything big so soon, I know I just got here and everything, but it’d be so cool if-

(Just then, the door opens up just as Captain Charisma and Holly were about to head out, and standing in front of the pair now, is none other than Kensingten Calhoun-Astor! Despite Kensingten’s less than favorable reputation, Captain Charisma’s expectant and welcoming demeanor doesn’t falter.)

Captain Charisma: Kensingten! What can I-

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Captain Charisma, you’re just the man I was looking for! But let’s not beat around the bush and whatnot and cut right to the chase because as we all know, my time is precious: Why in the world am I not booked for Road to Redemption?! Don’t you think it’s more than even just a tad bit concerning that your most talented draw doesn’t have a match on one of the biggest FPVs of the season?! Loooooooord, I took you for being a man much smarter than that!

Captain Charisma: Well, you see, the thing about that is, at Wicked Games when Candice Blair defeated you-

(Kensingten is quick to wave off the statement, rolling her eyes with a look of annoyance. Meanwhile, Holly remains silently beside Captain Charisma, looking a bit taken aback by Kensingten’s sudden appearance.)

Kesingten Calhoun-Astor: Now, that’s something I would just rather not talk about. All of what Miss Blair did to me that night was reprehensible to the highest degree, and frankly, as far as I’m concerned, I’ve moved on from that whole ordeal. Besides, while she’s making a fool of herself for thinking that she’ll even come close to taking the Specialists Championship off Kasey Kaos, I’m right here, telling you, Captain Charisma, that I’m still the one that you should be investing in! That’s why I’m askin- no, I’m DEMANDING that I get a place on the card. Country Cookin’ has done more for the ratings of this brand than anything else on it that I know of, so if you ask me, it’s only right that I’m there at Road to Redemption. I mean, you can’t just honestly expect me to just sit this one out on the sidelines, now can you?!

Captain Charisma: You know, there is a lot happening right now, but I’m sure that in the few coming weeks, there will be an opportunity that pops up for you to for something like that, as well as Holly Arrow, here!

(Kensingten looks confused before Captain Charisma finally motions to Holly, who smiles at Kensingten and even offers to shake her hand. Kensingten, however, looks her up and down as she seems to finally realize that she might’ve interrupted something, but judging from the unimpressed expression she’s wearing, she’s hardly thrilled to be in Holly’s presence and Holly takes that as a sign that she can simply drop her hand back down to her side.)

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Mhmmm, right, yes, how do you do? Because I’m sure you know that I am none other than Kensingten Calhoun-Astor; and yes, the pleasure is most certainly all yours to be in my vicinity!

(It’s clear that Kensingten’s personality is a lot to take in all at once for Holly, and she’s really not over the moon about the blonde either, but she remains cordial nonetheless.)

Holly Arrow: Well, what I can say is that I’m really looking forward to getting started! There’s so much I’ve seen already and now getting to be a part of everything is surely about to be a whole different experience, but I’ve spent enough time working to hone my craft and perfect as much as I can before I arrived. I know there’ll be so much more to learn along the way but there’s hardly any challenge that I’m not ready to tackle in order to get things going. And…

(Holly trails off as she realizes that Kensingten has stopped listening, having instead decided to inspect her nails and merely nod along while Holly was speaking. But finally, Kensingten raises her head while throwing on feigned interest, obviously not necessarily caring for Holly in the slightest.)

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Sure. Very cute. I’m sure you must be so excited, Miss Hayley-

Holly Arrow: It’s Holly, actually.

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Holly. Right. But anyways! Back to more important things! Captain Charisma, about my Road to Redemption match? We need to get to work on that and fast, because I simply refuse to be left out of competing on such a big stage. There’s nothing that would hurt this brand more than to not have me competing that night; it’d be nothing short of a disgrace! Un-American is what it’d be, and in downright contentious and unprecedented times like this, that’s the last thing we need!

(Kensingten pleads her case to Captain Charisma, who seems to be taking her words into serious account. He nods his head in thought, while Kensingten expectantly awaits with a smile for an answer, just knowing that he’ll have to see things her way.)

Captain Charisma: You know, Kensingten, you can get a match!

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: See, I knew you would understand-

Captain Charisma: It’ll be next week on Voltage, and it’ll be in a one-on-one against the debuting Holly Arrow! You’ve proven to be quite the competitor, Kensingten, and with Holly surely looking to be one of our brightest additions, it’ll be the perfect match-up for the two of you!

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: No, I don’t think you heard me right. Now what I said was-

Holly Arrow: Wow, I’m getting a match already?! Like I said, I wasn’t expecting anything so soon, but I’m so ready for this. Honestly, Kensingten, I’ve seen your matches and I know that, next week, the two of us are really going to tear the roof off this place; it’ll be a match that no one will forget anytime soon! I’m so excited! I just have to go tell my friends about this; thank you so much, Captain Charisma!

(Holly excitedly thanks Captain Charisma one more time before she takes off out of view while getting her phone out, but meanwhile, Kensingten seems to be processing what exactly just happened and how what she got wasn’t what she came for. Smacking her lips together as she settles with it, she shakes her head before looking to Captain Charisma.)

Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: “One of our brightest additions”, huh? Well, you know what? I’ll play your game, Mister Captain Charisma, because if you’ve got such high hopes for her, then you’ll have no choice but to realize next week that there’s no way Road to Redemption could occur on God’s green earth without me, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, as your leading star. Mark my words, this isn’t the last of our conversation!

(Kensingten points a stern finger at Captain Charisma, who isn’t intimidated in the slightest, before she walks off down the hall, clearly annoyed with the outcome of her intentions but seemingly determined regardless. With the camera panning back to Captain Charisma, he nods to himself with a grin, seemingly pleased with his decision before he goes to head back into this office, and from there, the scene fades out.)

(PSA encouraging Elitists to consider Rehabilitation for all of their personal problems, featuring Andre Walker who’s still trying to overcome his Green M&M problem.)

(Voltage returns from commercial break and soon fades backstage. The camera fades to the interviewing area, and Sofia Clarke is standing in front of the camera with a microphone as usual, and very soon she begins to speak.)

Sofia Clarke: This past Friday night on Dynasty we saw two semi-finals matches for the Grand Prix tournament. In the first of those two matches we saw the Jaded Hearts take on the Blicky Boyz. Not only did this match determine which team would move on to the finals to face who’d later turn out to be the Liquid Swordz, but this match also determined who’d be representing Voltage in doing so between Sienna Jade and Malcolm Jones. It was an extremely hard fought match, but in the end Malcolm Jones would pin Sienna Jade, securing the victory for the Blicky Boyz. Now ladies and gentlemen.. Please welcome Voltage’s representative in the Grand Prix finals, Malcolm Jones!

(Malcolm Jones soon enters the camera’s view to a mixed reaction, with a confident look on his face as usual.)

Sofia Clarke: Malcolm, I was wondering if you had any words after scoring not only a second victory over the Jaded Hearts this year, but after making it to the finals of the Grand Prix.

Malcolm Jones: Everything I said would happen is what happened, it’s as simple as that. I told them bitches we were making it to the finals of the Grand Prix and beating them a second time regardless of whether or not they were on the same page and they didn’t listen. Now Kassidy over on Showdown complaining that she wasn’t at her 100 percent like that was ever gonna make a difference. I made it clear that I didn’t give a fuck how she was coming to Dynasty, we were still beating they asses regardless, so if she wasn’t ready for us that’s her problem. 100 percent or 1 percent, same page or not on the same page the Blicky Boyz were winning, and that’s that. I said I wasn’t entering the Grand Prix to play second fiddle to anyone and I clearly wasn’t lying. I entered the Grand Prix to win the whole damn thing and now we’re one step away from doing so. Chris and I made it clear we’re not best friends or nothing like that but we got one common goal and that’s to add this to our resume. We got one match left and then we’ll do just that.

Sofia Clarke: Well speaking of that final match, in the main event of Dynasty it turns out the Liquid Swordz did in fact defeat the Shea Butter Babies to advance to the finals. Do you have any words on the Liquid Swordz ahead of the Grand Prix finals?

Malcolm Jones: The Liquid Bozos? Look, I’mma make this simple. I already told y’all I came to win the Grand Prix and I’m not about to lose to old ass Impact and Mr. DEDEDE. The Blicky Boyz never had a chance to fully go forward as a tag team and this is our best chance to do so. We already made it this far and crushed any chances of that dumbass Jaded Hearts versus Liquid Swordz match. The Liquid Swordz really aren’t this impossible team to overcome or even some out of this world challenge. Chris and I are gonna do the same thing we did to Justin Windgate, Jon Kelton, Drake King, Darcy May Morgan, Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade to those two. We’re gonna beat their asses, we’re gonna win the Grand Prix tournament, and then we’re gonna win what’s really ours in the Unified Tag Team Championships. I really never gave a fuck who it was. Shea Butter Babies or Liquid Swordz it didn’t matter, but now we’re just gonna have to go right past DEDEDE and Impact which is perfectly fine with me. Either way, you’re looking at the one half of the next Grand Prix winners.

Sofia Clarke: So I take it that you’re not worried about your chances against the Liquid Swordz?

Malcolm Jones: Fuck I look like being worried about the Liquid Swordz? Why would I come this far if I was worried about potentially facing them in the finals? I’m not worried about them or anyone else that was in the tournament, like I said I came to win and the Blicky Boyz were gonna win regardless of who was put in front of us. This has really been our tournament from the jump even if not everyone believed in us at first. We know how good we are. We spent this entire Grand Prix tournament proving how good we are and this is just gonna be another case of us winning a match where we’re not the favorites, which has clearly never been a problem for me. The Blicky Boyz don’t have to worry about not being the favorites to win, just like we don’t have to worry about whether or not we’re fit to compete or whatever excuses Kassidy’s ass comes up with whenever she loses to us. We’ve been running this tournament from the very beginning and that’s not about to end at the Grand Prix’s final match. This isn’t gonna be where our streak of wins end, instead we’re gonna repeat what happened on Dynasty every single week of this tournament. We’re gonna win, and in the process we’re gonna go and add our names up there as one of the greatest tag teams of all time. The Getriatric Swordz aka the Sugar Daddies who’re probably consoling their Sugar Babies as I speak may as well just go and find another avenue if they wanna stat pad and get them Championships so badly ‘cause beating the Blicky Boyz to win the Grand Prix ain’t it.

Sofia Clarke: And I believe that’ll be all, thank you for your time.

(As Sofia finishes speaking Malcolm finally walks off. As Sofia remains in front of the camera with a smile on her face, Voltage fades away from the backstage area.)

(Voltage cuts back to ringside as Bella Braxton is seen standing in the middle of the ring with a mic and a smile on her face as she holds the mic up and begins to speak)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is a EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER PREVIEW MATCH!!! And it’s a contest scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac plays up to cheers as a lowrider comes in and TLA is in the passenger seat as he looks around with a smile on his face as he does so as he poses as he stands on of the seat. Before long as the lowrider parks he jumps onto the hood as he poses again before jumping onto the stage and making his way down the ramp with a energetic smile on his face as he does so)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… residing in The Poon Palace in Miami, Florida… weighing in at 210 pounds… LA PANTERA SEXUAL… T… L… A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Last week the combined team of the Corona Hombres faced The House of Leaders in which they came out victorious and in turn, gained TLA here, a spot in the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road To Redemption, you gotta wonder how he feels this week heading into this match.

James Peters: He’s gotta be confident for sure. Not only did he get that spot, but he also got one over on a certain Drake King as well, and to top it all off, Darcy May Morgan took out Drake in return, he’s gotta feel good. But in turn he’s gotta focus on this match, I  believe he’s in it to win and I don’t see a problem with him doing so, he’s going to come in with that fuego no doubt.

Persephone: … fuego?

James Peters: Fire.

Persephone: Oh I thought you meant taki. Well uh I don’t really see the hype around TLA he just has a bunch of women and in turn the neckbeards support him like that, I don’t know it might just be me though.

(TLA would circle around the ring before jumping up onto the apron and climbing up to the top rope as he would spread his arms out with a smile on his face before jumping down as he would circle around the ring. He would make his way over to his corner and began to warm up as ‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ would fade out. Before long ‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons would play up as Terry Chambers would make his way out to the stage. With a stern look on his face full of motivation as he would look around before slicking back his hair and making his way down the ramp and headed towards the ring)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Detroit, Michigan.. weighing in at 257 pounds… THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: As we stated before last week Corona Hombres got a huge win over the team of Drake King and Darcy May Morgan as now this week! Terry’s going up against his partner! Being one of the first people confirmed for the Extreme Elimination Chamber he’s gotta bring that intensity to show exactly why he deserved that spot against a bonafide competitor across the ring from him tonight.

James Peters: Absolutely no doubt. If he can get this win over TLA it would be astronomical for him. This would propel him and I think that Terry realizes that heading into this matchup, he’s going to put his best foot forward to make sure that he gets that victory and we’re going to see that tonight.

Persephone: You know what’s funny. I watch all these commercials during the shows and there’s so many Terry Chambers ones. Goddamn I know he’s like, lost weight, but has he really lost that much? HAH! What a loser! Terry Chamburger got nothing bruh.

(Terry Chambers makes his way up the steel steps as he enters into the ring before making his way to the center of the ring. He would climb up to the top rope as he would pose at the top before jumping off the top and making his way towards his corner as he would crouch down. Looking with a smirk as ‘Natural’ would fade out and the Ref would signal for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: HERE WE GO AS THIS EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER PREVIEW MATCH IS UNDERWAY!

James Peters: Both members of the Corona Hombres circling around one another as they lock up in a collar-and-elbow! Both TLA and Terry are jockeying for position as TLA is planting his feet to the ground as Terry is beginning to push him towards the ropes. TLA slips behind Terry as he wraps his arms around Terry, but Terry grabs the ropes and whips TLA away from him as TLA rolls down to the ground!

Rich Russillo: TLA down to a knee as Terry isn’t wasting time as he runs forward and goes for a boot! But TLA slips to the right as it allows him to get back up to his feet as he turns TLA around, AND CONNECTS WITH A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI! Terry sent back as he plants himself down on a knee as TLA runs to the ropes and back as he leaps up into the air, GOING FOR AN HURRICANRANA!

James Peters: BUT TERRY TURNS IT AROUND AS HE LIFTS TLA IN THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB! Terry going for the pin attempt!

OOONNNEEE!!!

Persephone: BUT TLA KICKS OUT AT ONE! Why bother taunting me like that, atleast end the match if you’re going to pin him that early. :noah:

Rich Russillo: TLA getting up to his feet but Terry was just that much faster as he grabs the arm of TLA and sends him into an Irish whip towards the corner! TLA backed up as Terry runs forward, and connects with a quick chop towards the chest of TLA as he tries to retreat but Terry keeps him in the corner! As he sends another one towards his chest as TLA falls down towards a seated position! Terry beginning to stomp down onto the chest of TLA as he backs up from there, AS TERRY RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TOWARDS HIS HEAD!

James Peters: TLA grabbing onto the bottom rope as he’s using it to pull himself away as Terry is grabbing his hair and bringing him back up to his feet. Terry strikes him with a forearm shot, but TLA responds back with a forearm shot of his own! Terry taken back as he moves forward, but TLA sends a kick towards his gut forcing Terry to back up even more! TERRY REELING BACK HIS ARM AS HE GOES FOR A STIFF LARIAT!

Rich Russillo: But TLA ducks under as he runs to the ropes and back, as he connects with a running forearm! TLA keeping ahold of Terry as he falls down to a knee, AND HE CONNECTS WITH A QUICK DDT! Terry falling to the ground as he grabs at the canvas trying to quickly pull himself up to his feet, BUT TLA RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS FOR EXTRA MEASURE!

James Peters: Terry rolls out onto the apron as he gets back up to his feet as TLA makes his way over to him, as he rams his shoulder into the gut of La Pantera Sexual forcing him back as it allows him to enter back into the ring! BUT TLA GOING FOR A BICYCLE KICK TOWARDS THE HEAD OF TERRY! Which Terry moves out of the way of as it allows him to lift him in the air, AS HE DROPS HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A SPINEBUSTER!

Rich Russillo: TLA grabbing his back as Terry grabs him by the head and begins to punch him towards his face! TLA bringing his arms up trying to defend himself but Terry begins to overwhelm him as he lifts him up to his feet and brings him into a headlock, AS HE LIFTS HIM UP AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A BIG SUPLEX!

James Peters: Terry back on the offense as he attempts to transition into a mounted position to continue the onslaught! BUT TLA ROLLS IT INTO A SCHOOLBOY PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO-

Persephone: WHICH CHAMBURGER PUSHES AWAY FROM SADLY!

Rich Russillo: Both of them are back up to their feet as it allows TLA to recover quickly as Terry tries to advance! But TLA cracks a back elbow against the jaw of Terry as he falls down to a knee! TLA takes a step back as he takes a big step forward, and connects with another elbow across his face as he falls down to the ground! TLA is back in this match!

James Peters: Terry attempting to get back up to his feet as TLA advances towards him, but Terry moves out of the way as he throws TLA towards the ropes! TLA grabs onto the top rope to keep himself stabilized as Terry sees this and runs towards him, but TLA returns the favor as he throws him out of the ring as Terry finds himself on the apron! BUT TLA WITH A QUICK FOREARM SHOT TO THE FACE OF TERRY FORCES HIM TO LOSE HIS GRIP AS HE FALLS TO THE RINGSIDE AREA!

Rich Russillo: TLA seeing this opportunity in his hands as he runs to the ropes and back as Terry is leaning against the barricade before pushing himself off, I don’t think he knows what’s coming for him! AS TLA FLIES THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND TAKES TERRY DOWN WITH A BIG SUICIDE DIVE!

James Peters: TLA grabbing him and rolling into the ring as he’s jumping up to the apron now. TLA running to a corner of the ring as he begins to scale the turnbuckles, the hombre looking to fly! AS HE LAUNCHES IN THE AIR GOING FOR A FROG SPLASH!

Persephone: IT AIN’T OVER TILL THE CHAMBURGER SINGS! HE GETS THE KNEES UP!

Rich Russillo: TLA sitting up as he grabs his gut in pain as he finds himself trying to recover as that’s allowing Terry to get back up to his feet as he grabs TLA by his head, and slams it back down onto the canvas with absolute authority! Terry isn’t done though as he grabs TLA and lifts him up onto his shoulders, AS HE LOOKS TO TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB!

James Peters: But nope! TLA seems to be fighting back as he’s connecting with quick punches just raining down onto the skull of Terry as he attempts to keep him up in the air but he seems to be losing balance! Terry stumbling backwards, which allows TLA to leap off of Terry’s shoulders and climb up onto the top rope! Terry feeling the weight lift off of him as he stumbles forward and turns around, AS TLA LAUNCHES THROUGH THE AIR AND TAKES TERRY DOWN WITH A TOP ROPE METEORA!

Rich Russillo: TLA kipping up to his feet as he waits for Terry to get back up to his feet as he does so waiting for the momentum so he can seize it as he runs towards Terry, AS HE CONNECTS WITH A CARTEL KICK! PELE KICK CONNECTS ACROSS THE FACE OF TERRY AS TLA DROPS DOWN AND GOES FOR THE PIN!

OOONNNEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRR-

James Peters: BUT TERRY KICKS OUT! TLA sitting up as he’s shaking his head as he once again goes to the apron as he begins to slowly climb the top rope again, I think we know what he’s going for here! TLA balancing himself on the top rope as he looks to fly, AS HE GOES FOR BURNOUT!

Rich Russillo: BUT TERRY GETS THE KNEES UP! TLA shoots up as he stumbles backwards grabbing his back in pain as he turns around as I don’t think he knows what’s coming to him, MOMENT OF SILENCE! TERRY LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH A SICKENING HEADBUTT ACROSS THE SKULL OF TLA!

James Peters: BUT TLA DOES A ROLL TO THE RIGHT AS IT ALLOWS HIM TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! Both of them are back up to their feet now as Terry makes his way towards TLA, as TLA grabs him by the arm and sends him towards the corner once more with an Irish whip! Terry backed up against the corner as TLA runs towards him, but Terry manages to move out of the way as he trades spots with him! Terry beginning to send stomps towards the chest of TLA as he tries to force him down again, but it’s TLA that clocks him across the jaw with a forearm! Terry stumbles back as TLA grabs the turnbuckles to keep himself up as he runs forward looking to take him down!

Persephone: BUT HE CATCHES HIM AS HE BEGINS TO MAKE OUT WITH HIM!

Rich Russillo: MOMENT OF SILENCE CONNECTS! HEADBUTT CATCHES TLA AS HE FALLS TO THE GROUND AS TERRY GOES FOR THE PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRR-

James Peters: BUT IT’S TLA THAT KICKS OUT OF THE PIN ATTEMPT!

Rich Russillo: Terry right back up to his feet as I don’t think he sees a point in waiting any longer as he’s waiting for TLA to get back up to his feet, just praying on his opponent at the moment, what does he have in store? TLA is on his knees as Terry is grabbing him and lifting him up into a fireman’s carry, I think we have an idea of what he’s about to do! HE’S GOING FOR THE T-5!

James Peters: But TLA is fighting out of it! He’s sending elbow after elbow towards the face of Terry as he’s forced to bring him down as it sets him up, AS TLA GOES FOR A SWAG SHOT! But Terry manages to duck under as he lifts him up in the air, AND GOES FOR A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!

Rich Russillo: AS HE CONNECTS! TLA falls down to the ground as he grabs his back in pain falling to a sitting position, as Terry turns around and cracks a kick across his back! TLA falls down to the ground as Terry is bringing him back up to his feet, as he connects with another elbow across his face! But TLA responds with one of his own! But it allows Terry to swing around, AS HE GOES FOR A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!

James Peters: BUT TLA DUCKS UNDER! TLA turning Terry around as he grabs him by the head, AS HE LEAPS UP INTO THE AIR AND TAKES TERRY DOWN WITH A QUICK FRANKENSTEINER AS HE TRANSITIONS IT INTO A PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Persephone: STOP KICKING OUT!

Rich Russillo: TERRY KICKS OUT! Both of them are back up to their feet, AS TERRY CONNECTS WITH A BIG BOOT TOWARDS THE FACE OF TLA! TLA falling down to a knee as Terry grabs him by the hair to keep him upright as he throws him towards the ropes, TERRY TRANSITIONING INTO A SAMOAN DROP AS HE PLANTS TLA BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND!

James Peters: TLA grabbing his back as all he can do is withstand the attack that Terry is giving him as Terry is grabbing him once more and bringing him up too his feet. Terry kicking TLA in the gut as he doubles over, pulling him in and hooking the arms! HE’S GOING FOR CHAMBERS OF PAIN!

Rich Russillo: AND FUTURE SHOCK DDT CONNECTS AS TLA IS TAKEN BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND! Terry saw an opportunity and took it as now he’s hooking the legs and going for the pin on TLA!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRE-

James Peters: BUT TLA KICKS OUT! Terry sitting up as frustration is beginning to grow as he’s getting back up to his feet. He’s making his way over to the corner as he’s crouching down, he’s waiting for TLA to get up as I think we know he’s ready to finish this match! TLA is back up to his feet as he grabs the turnbuckles and turns around as I don’t think he knows what’s coming for him, TERRY IS RUNNING AS HE’S GOING FOR RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! CLAYMORE KICK!

Rich Russillo: DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! TLA REBOUNDING OFF THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AS HE LAUNCHES UP AND STOMPS DOWN ONTO THE GUT OF TERRY IN MIDAIR! TERRY IS DOWN AS TLA CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE! HE SEES THE OPPORTUNITY AS HE’S LOOKING TO FLY!

James Peters: BURNOUT! CORKSCREW 360 SENTON CONNECTS AS TLA GOES FOR THE PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ plays up as TLA gets back up to his feet with an intense look on his face as he throws a fist up in the air with a smirk on his face as he leans against the ropes. He looks around at the virtual crowd as they cheer for him as the Ref makes his way over to TLA as he raises his hand in victory as he keeps a smirk on his face as he does so. He slicks back his hair before climbing up to the top rope as he looks around at the hyped crowd as he puts his hand to his heart with a joking smile before jumping down and continuing his celebration around the ring)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… T… L… A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Persephone: :blessed: The match is done, free at last! Free at last!

Rich Russillo: What a match that we’ve just seen between two superb competitors who threw it all out there for the intent of making sure that they walked into the Extreme Elimination Chamber with the edge and make sure that they come out of Road To Redemption with the EAW World Championship. And that’s the name of the game with these types of matches, getting one over on your opponents to make sure that you drive your foot in the ground and come into the event with that pure fire in return.

James Peters: In the end it was the veteran TLA that got the best of Terry Chambers and got the win over him. Take absolutely nothing away from Terry though he put up one hell of a fight against a former World Champion and in no way does that soil his chances of walking into the Extreme Elimination Chamber and hell coming out with the victory too while we’re at it. But in the end TLA walks out victorious and for that we give our congratulations to him!

(TLA is about to leave the ring before Terry grabs him by the arm before he can do so as he brings him back into the ring. Terry looks at him for a moment trying to catch his breath before holding his hand out to him in a sign of respect. TLA looks at the hand before looking back up at Terry as he shakes it with a bright smile on his face as he does so as Terry responds with a light smile as well. Before long as both of them would begin to walk away, they’re seemingly pulled back in with one another. The handshake grows tense as both of them don’t let go of the grip. They glare at one another before finally Terry lets go as he walks away and leaves the ring without doing anything else as TLA continues his celebration as Voltage fades out.)

(Voltage fades from the ringside area and cuts to another pre-tape from earlier in the day. This time, the Specialists Champion, Kasey Kaos, is seen sitting down in front of the same plain white background, with the Specialists Championship around her waist, and she does not look happy about her surroundings.)

Narrator: (off-screen) State your name for the record please.

(Kasey blinks and stares coldly at the person sitting across from her.)

Kasey Kaos: Record? What record? Whose record? And first all of, before we begin, we would like to say that we did not approve of this white backdrop; it’s far too… light. Do we look like we desire light in our life? Unless it’s the light from our flames, then the answer is no. Or, alternatively, is what you’re saying that where there is light, there is also darkness reigning over it? Either way, we disapprove. Back to your request, the world knows who we are, your… record knows who we are. We are your Specialists Champion. But we’ll play nice… our name is Kasey Kaos.

Narrator: (off-screen) How long have you been wrestling? What have you accomplished thus far?

(A slight chuckle escapes from Kasey.)

Kasey Kaos: We have been around longer than you can fathom. We’ve been in battle since before you puppets were even a thought in your master’s head. We are highly feared and respected figures in Hell, where we inflict endless misery, suffering, and torment to your deserving kin – and likely you soon enough as well.

Narrator: (off-screen) Did you ever envision yourself competing for the biggest company in the world?

(There is a slight crack to the narrator’s voice, which means he is clearly disturbed by the woman sitting across from him. Kasey’s eyes sparkle and she bares her teeth at him before answering the question. The sound of the narrator’s chair can be heard scraping the ground as he puts more distance between Kasey and himself.)

Kasey Kaos: Well… yes. How could we possibly takeover this industry competing elsewhere? We have come from depths far beyond your comprehension to rise above you all. To do so we required the grandest stage. Why, do you find it hard to believe that we are here? Are you suggesting we are unworthy of being here?

Narrator: (off-screen) :whoa: No! I am not suggesting that :mjcry:. It’s just a question, damn.

Kasey Kaos: Very well. Continue on, little one.

Narrator: (off-screen) What are your thoughts about your current position in EAW?

Kasey Kaos: We do not fit EAW. We do not fit the world that EAW wishes to elevate itself within, as we do not fit the type to be plastered over posters. Yet here we are anyway. What are our thoughts? Our thoughts are that we have forced ourselves upon you all, and we have done so in the face of mockery and derision. We are far from satisfied because we are far from the top. We are not like you people, we do not settle, we do not rest, we are not content with accepting second place when we want it all. The current position is the peak of our opponents, but only the beginning for us.

Narrator: (off-screen) What does competing in the Specialists Chamber mean to you?

Kasey Kaos: It means that a lot of ignorant little girls are about to find themselves trapped with a Demon. It means that a lot of naïve little girls are about to find themselves badly hurt. The opportunity to vanquish so many foes in one fell swoop is very pleasing to us, because it means that questions that, for some reason, are still being asked about us will once again be violently and painfully answered.

(Kasey takes a deep breath and closes her eyes, picturing the carnage she can do while locked inside something as deadly as the Specialists Chamber. It delights her.)

Narrator: (off-screen) Who’s your biggest competition in this match? Why?

Kasey Kaos: What’s the purpose of this question? Do you want us to say that none of these women are a threat, thus allowing you to paint us as the arrogant villain of the piece? We are no such thing. We are the hero of this story – the saviour of a youth misled by the ego of a wannabe fairytale princess; we are slowly turning those little princess’ into our own little Hellspawn. Or on the other hand, do you wish us to say Candice Blair, after her victory against us on Voltage? She will no doubt wear that victory as a badge of honour. A victory in a match that meant nothing is going to be the closest she’s ever going to get to being a champion. She will speak of that victory like it has earned her something, like she should now command respect. Win a war, not a battle, little one, and then get back to us. Who is the biggest competition? You people are all the same – two arms, two legs, a head and a small brain. We will face you all without fear.

Narrator: (off-screen) What does the title of Specialists Champion mean to you?

Kasey Kaos: It means we are on the right path. It means that we took something that is much cherished by you people and made it our own. We wanted it. We took it. We have it.

Narrator: (off-screen) How are you currently elevating that historic championship?

(Kasey rolls her eyes.)

Kasey Kaos: Really? That’s a real question? You dare to ask us how we are elevating something that Sarah Price dragged into the dirt? You people have what you consider to be forces of nature… we are far beyond that. We are opening the world’s eyes to the grim realities that you’ve all caused and making you realise that no amount of fairytales will save you. Happy endings don’t exist. It is elevated simply by being in our possession. Some would say that this is the secondary woman’s title within EAW… not in our hands it’s not.

(Kasey looks down at the Specialists Championship and runs her hand across it rather fondly.)

Narrator: (off-screen) Anything you want to say to your fellow chamber participants?

Kasey Kaos: Rest in peace is a saying used often by your kind, yet it’s something that rarely happens. Very few of you experience any sort of peace when you perish, as we make sure of that. The pain that we’re going to bring upon you all for daring to think you can part us from our championship will leave you longing for end. Remember this though – you have all allowed your pride to get the better of you and every drop of blood that we cause you to spill inside the Specialists Chamber is a drop that you have brought upon yourselves. Hell awaits you all with open arms.

Narrator: (off-screen) Thank you for your time.

(The relief in the narrator’s voice is not lost on Kasey. He is glad the interview is done.)

Kasey Kaos: Yes, you should thank us, as we had many better things to do than sit with the likes of you and your loaded questions. Do you realise how many people currently reside in The Void awaiting their final trip to eternal damnation? Allow us to tell you, much less than there should be, because we have been forced to listen to your insufferable questions. Bye bye.

(Kasey gets up and exits the scene, and Voltage fades to commercial break.)

(‘Kingslayer’ by Bring Me The Horizon featuring BABYMETAL plays through the theatre as the virtual crowd gives a negative reception to ‘All That’ Jesse Barlow, who walks out with Hannah Marin to his side. The two of them feeling confident about  themselves as they head down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL —

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY HANNAH MARIN…FROM HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY…WEIGHING IN 210… ‘ALL THAT’…JESSE BARLOW!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: As of last week, Jesse Barlow got himself his Road to Redemption match secured as he will take on the newly crowned champion, Myles!

Persephone: I’m not sure how Jesse keeps getting himself in these types of matches, but more power to him. He has a tough match against Myles.

James Peters: Jesse Barlow has been able to get himself in championship matches, but he’s failed at capturing titles. He’s a wonderful wrestler. He constantly busts himself off and tries to get himself higher on the card, but something is messing. I have no idea what it is, but perhaps, he has already figured it out and could defeat Myles there!

Rich Russillo: He’s got an opponent as unpredictable and cutthroat as Myles in the Specialists Champion, Kasey Kaos. Defeating her will not be easy, but perhaps, it will provide Jesse of insight of how it feels to be a cutthroat champion in this company!

(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson replaces ‘Kingslayer’ as the Specialists Champion, Kasey Kaos walks out from the back to a pretty positive reaction of the crowd. She unbuckles the Specialists Championship from her waist as she raises it above her head.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT…FROM THE LAKE OF FIRE… SHE IS THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… ‘MISS MAYHEM’…KASEY KAOS!!!!!!

Persephone: Now, this champion has a date with five other women in the Extreme Elimination Chamber Match. From the events of last week, she found herself on the losing end against Candice Blair and it was something that she was not happy about. It should light a fire underneath her ass to make sure that doesn’t happen at Road to Redemption.

James Peters: Good observation, Persephone. I think that Kasey was expecting to go into this Chamber to dominate, but Candice and her victory over the champion, may or may not have burst her bubble.

Rich Russillo: Hopefully, Kasey starts to think realistically going into the Chamber or she’s going to walk out of Road to Redemption empty handed. I do think that this match is going to bring the ugly out of her and that’s something that a lot of the women will not be ready for.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: ASK THE ANGELS FROM KASEY KAOS!!!!!

Persephone: JESSE BARLOW MANAGES TO DUCK OUT OF THE WAY AS KASEY KAOS ISN’T ABLE TO STOP HERSELF! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION STUMBLES FORWARD AS JESSE MANAGES WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HER WAIST BEFORE THROWING HER OVER HIS HEAD FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!

James Peters: BUT, KASEY MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET! JESSE BARLOW TURNS HIMSELF AROUND AS LOOKS INTO THE DEMENTATED EYES OF KASEY! KASEY WANTS THE FIGHT! SHE WANTS THE SMOKE FROM ‘ALL THAT!’

Rich Russillo: Who is Jesse Barlow to deny this psychopath a fight? He has a message that he wants to be sending to the National Elite Champion, Myles, who is more than likely to be looking at this match close and personal!

Persephone: He probably is if he’s not eating off the face of Minerva.

James Peters: Jesse Barlow manages to get himself to his feet! Hannah Marin rooting him on from ringside as Kasey Kaos awaits for her opponent to get back to a vertical base before connecting with a spinning back palm to the chest of Jesse! Kasey connects with another open handed palm strike to the chest of Jesse until he falls back onto the horizontal set of ropes! Kasey manages to get him by the arm before pulling him forward, whipping him to the other set of ropes, but midway, Jesse manages to counter her whip, so that it’s the champion that rebounds herself off the ropes — slingblade on Jesse as that nearly takes him down! It doesn’t stop him, so he recollects himself to his feet, but Kasey manages to pounce on Jesse with a lou thesz press, delivering some punches to his so-called ‘handsome’ face!

Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos gets her hands and manages to pin Jesse Barlow’s shoulders to the mat, but Jesse manages to bridge himself out of the hold before the referee can get in position for the count! As Jesse was bridging himself out of the hold, I bet he thought that it would make Kasey move, but she’s still on top of him! I’m not sure if Hannah is going to be appreciative of that!

Persephone: Kasey finds herself the opening to connect with a monkey flip on Jesse! Jesse goes flipping across the ring! Before Jesse can completely get himself up, Kasey charges towards him with a Cherry Bomb, her version of the shining wizard! This takes Jesse to his back as the referee gets in position for the cover!

OOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!

James Peters: Jesse Barlow manages to get a shoulder up! Kasey Kaos manages to get a hold of Jesse’s right hand that he used to reach out of the pin attempt! She gets the fingers of Jesse before bending them back! Jesse’s arm is bending back at the same time as Kasey slowly gets to a vertical base! Jesse is completely stuck as Kasey delivers a nasty stomp to his fingers! :damn: :damn: :damn:

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow is holding onto his fingers as Kasey Kaos races to Jesse before getting his right hand and using it to get back to his feet! Kasey manages to jump on the top turnbuckle before balancing herself on the top rope before connecting with a springboard armdrag! Jesse goes flying to the other side of the ring! Kasey bolts right after him before knocking him back down with a dropkick!

Persephone: Jesse manages to back himself to the corner! Kasey hits him with a flying forearm, but Jesse manages to get the fuck out of the way at the last second! Kasey goes crashing to the corner — no! Kasey manages to get on the turnbuckle as Jesse tries to race after her, but Kasey manages to kick him away from her for that small fraction of time! Kasey manages to situate herself on the top rope before —

James Peters: Diving crossbody by Kasey Kaos! But, Jesse Barlow manages to catch ‘Miss Mayhem’ before taking her down with a powerslam! For one of the first times in the match, Jesse manages to get the upper hand on Kasey! Jesse manages to get Kasey by her hair before throwing her head first against the turnbuckle! Jesse connects with some stomps to the ribs of the Specialists Champion! Kasey slowly falls to a seated position before Jesse manages to get his boot and presses it against the neck of Kasey! He holds it there before the referee begins his count!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! GET OFF, JESSE!

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow is known to be a hot head at times! He continues to have his boot on Kasey Kaos’ neck, which causes the referee to be the one to separate Jesse from Kasey! The referee begins to scowl Jesse on following the rules!

Persephone: HANNAH MARIN THROWS A CHEAPSHOT TO KASEY KAOS BEHIND THE REFEREE’S BACK!

James Peters: How in the world is that fair? Hannah Marin backs up a bit as Jesse Barlow is so conveniently done with listening to the referee to get Kasey Kaos to her feet! Jesse connects with a rolling snapmare as Kasey manages to find herself in a seated position, but Jesse manages to connect with a shoot kick to the back of her skull! Kasey leans forward as Jesse manages to get in front of her before nailing her with a superkick as she falls to her back! Jesse hooks both of her legs and goes for the cover!

OOOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos kicks out! Jesse gets Kasey by her neck before applying a side headlock on her! Jesse is looking to keep Kasey down! He knows how much of a spitfire she can be inside the ring! Hannah Marin is clapping for Jesse at ringside! Jesse is looking real cocky at the moment! Meanwhile, you see that Kasey is doing what she can to separate herself from Jesse, but Jesse is wrenching in the headlock, making sure that Kasey does not get away!

Persephone: Kasey Kaos is now trying to get one of her hands near the face of Jesse Barlow! It seems like she’s trying to block Jesse’s sight for the time being, but Jesse is trying to get her hand away from his face!

James Peters: KASEY KAOS WITH A THUMB TO JESSE BARLOW’S EYE!

Rich Russillo: This releases the headlock that Jesse Barlow had on Kasey Kaos. The Specialists Champion needed to play dirty in order to get the headlock off of her! She saw that her strength was not going to be enough, so she had to rely on her sneakiness in order to separate herself from Jesse! Jesse is trying to check on his eye as the referee is lecturing on Kasey! Jesse may be temporarily blinded from that eye as Kasey is through with hearing the referee tell her on what she should and should not be doing! JESSE MANAGES TO CHARGE TOWARDS KASEY WITH A ‘GG2EZ’, A STIFF PUNCH TO KASEY, AS THAT STAGGERS HER BACK! JESSE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A CHOP BLOCK AS THAT SENDS KASEY BACK A HIT! KASEY CONNECTS WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO JESSE! JESSE CONNECTS WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO KASEY! JESSE! KASEY! JESSE! KASEY! JESSE! JESSE! JESSE! JESSE TAKES A STEP BACK BEFORE NAILING HITTING HER WITH A SITTING DUCK — THE DOUBLE LEG DROPKICK DROPS KASEY DOWN!

Persephone: I am hoping that Jesse Barlow is getting somewhere with this match because it would mean that this match ends! Jesse manages to get Kasey Kaos to her feet before throwing her shoulder first against the ring post! Jesse manages to get her in position before he wraps his arms around her waist before connecting with a German suplex! Kasey falls to her back as hoist her up to her feet before throwing her to the corner! Jesse rushes towards Kasey at the corner before connecting with a running uppercut! The Specialists Champion slides down to a seated position as Jesse runs towards her before connecting with a knee strike to her face!

James Peters: Jesse Barlow seems to be in the zone at the moment as he manages to get Kasey Kaos before hanging her from a tree of woe position by using the corner! We thought that Kasey Kaos was going to regain the upper hand in the match with the thumb to Jesse’s eye, but Jesse was real quick to shift the momentum back to his favor! He will stop at nothing to send a message to his opponent at Road to Redemption! With Kasey situated in the tree of woe position, Jesse takes a couple steps back as he is more than preparing himself for this next move! What in the world is Jesse going to be going for?!!?

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow charges towards Kasey Kaos before nailing with her with a hesitation dropkick! The force of that dropkick was enough to knock her out of the tree of woe position! Kasey falls on her neck awkwardly as Jesse seems to realize that! Jesse gets Kasey to her feet by the grasp of her neck before he turns her around and nails her with a neckbreaker! Jesse stands behind Kasey before getting her by the arms and applying a surfboard stretch on the champion! Kasey is screaming in pain as Jesse’s foot is placed on the back of her skull! I think that Kasey knows what is next for her as Jesse slams her face first against the mat!

Persephone: Now, Jesse Barlow is stepping on the face of Kasey Kaos! He’s not holding back whatsoever as he holds her face there for the cover! The referee gets in position for the count!

OOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!!

James Peters: Kasey Kaos manages to get a shoulder up! She knew that this match was slipping from her grasps as Jesse Barlow shakes his head in dissatisfaction! He gets Kasey Kaos by her face as he manages to deliver a nasty slap to her face! Kasey falls to one of her knees as she holds the side of her cheek that Jesse just slapped! Kasey looks at Jesse with a sinister look on her face!

Kasey Kaos: (off-mic) Hit us harder, Jesse. Is that all you got?

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow rushes towards her with a nasty boot to the face, but Kasey Kaos manages to duck the boot, but she gets Jesse Barlow and with the strength of all of her personalities, lifts Jesse over her head with a snap saito suplex! I don’t think that Jesse was anticipating that as Kasey slowly gets to her feet! Jesse is clutching to his lower back as he manages to get to his feet as well! Jesse charges towards her, but Kasey manages to hook Jesse by one of his arms before connecting with a hip toss! Jesse falls into a seated position as he eats a superkick by Kasey! Jesse falls to his back as Kasey is more than quick to follow that up with a standing elbow drop to the chest of ‘All That!’ Kasey Kaos goes for the cover!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Persephone: FUCK! Jesse Barlow manages to kick out! Sadly, it seems like we’re not going to be ending this match there!

James Peters: I think that you may be wrong there, Persephone! Kasey Kaos is looking to apply Kaos Reigns, the Tazmission, on Jesse Barlow! If Jesse finds himself in this hold, this match is over! It’s the last spot that he wants to be in this kind of match! Jesse is trying to scramble himself out of the hold, but I think that Kasey is trying to get him away from the ropes as much as she’s able to at the moment!

Rich Russillo: HANNAH MARIN IS SLIDING HERSELF INSIDE THE RING! SHE HAS JESSE BARLOW BY HIS HAND AS SHE’S LOOKING TO PULL HIM TO THE OUTSIDE! KASEY FEELS HER GRASP ON WHATEVER HOLD THAT SHE HAS ON JESSE SLIP AWAY AS HANNAH MANAGES TO PULL JESSE OUT OF HARM’S WAY!

Persephone: If Hannah Marin didn’t do what she just did, I’m not sure what Jesse’s chances of winning the match would have been, but she could have saved him from losing tonight! Kasey is looking at the two of them and she seems quite irritated at the moment, but who would blame her? That was her opening to win the match and Hannah took it away from her!

James Peters: WITHOUT REALLY MUCH THOUGHT, KASEY KAOS MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE AS THAT IS ENOUGH TO TAKE DOWN BOTH JESSE BARLOW AND HANNAH MARIN! ALL THREE OF THEM ARE DOWN IN THIS MATCH UP!

Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos manages to get to her feet as she picks up Jesse Barlow! She battery rams him on the hardest part of the apron! She pulls Jesse away before battery ramming him to the hardest part of the apron again! Jesse collapses to a seated position, but Kasey gets Jesse and throws him body first onto the steel steps! The Specialists Champion rushes towards before nailing him with a sharp knee strike to the face! Kasey gets Jesse before throwing him over her head with a German suplex! But, Jesse manages to maintain his feet on the ground! He is not allowing for Kasey to connect with any sort of move! Kasey goes to lift Jesse over her head again, but Jesse nails her with an elbow shot to the face! Jesse connects with another elbow shot to Kasey’s face, before that releases any hold that he may have over her!

Persephone:But, Kasey manages to shove Jesse to the ring post as that drops him back, but Kasey manages to catch Jesse before she has him in perfect position for Vae Victis — the inverted DDT connects on Jesse Barlow as he falls to the ground! Kasey is aware that the referee is at the count of six as she manages to roll herself inside the ring in order to break the count before she rolls herself outside! It seems like she wants to continue having her fun at ringside! It seems like this entire match has gone in the wrong direction because it means that it will go on longer now! :noah:

James Peters: Kasey Kaos gets a hold of Jesse Barlow before throwing him head first against the barricade! Kasey presses her boot onto the throat of Jesse before holding it on there! Hannah Marin is not liking the sight of that! She could sense that Jesse is in trouble at the moment and needs to find a way to make it all stop! Kasey gets Jesse up by the back of his neck before slamming him head first against the steel steps! This makes Jesse stagger back before collapsing to a seated position! The champion rushes towards Jesse with a Cherry Bomb, another shining wizard hits the skull of ‘All That!’

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow finds himself in a bit of trouble at the moment as it’s been all Kasey Kaos at this moment! Kasey gets Jesse before rolling him back inside the ring! The referee seems to be checking on Jesse as Kasey tries to roll herself back inside the ring!

Persephone: HANNAH MARIN PULLS ON THE LEG OF KASEY KAOS! THAT TAKES HER OUT OF THE RING, BUT THE REFEREE DOESN’T SEE IT! HE HAS BEEN BUSY WITH DEALING WITH JESSE BARLOW!!!!

James Peters: HANNAH MARIN THROWS KASEY KAOS TO THE BARRICADE LIKE SHE WAS A RAG DOLL! BUT, HANNAH IS MORE THAN QUICK TO GET KASEY BACK INSIDE THE RING! AT THE MOST CONVENIENT TIME POSSIBLE, JESSE BARLOW IS STARTING TO CRAWL OVER! HE SEES THAT KASEY KAOS IS IN PERFECT POSITION FOR A PINFALL ATTEMPT! THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO POSITION FOR THE COVER! WILL THIS END THE MATCH HERE?!?!?

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!

THHHHRRRRR–

Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS KICKS OUT!!!!!!

Persephone: Jesse Barlow looks very angry and if that means anything, he is more than determined to get a victory over the Specialists Champion! JESSE GETS KASEY KAOS BY HER HAIR BEFORE HOISTING HER UP IN THE AIR AND CONNECTING WITH A BAMBINO BOMB! THE TIGER BOMB CONNECTS, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE JESSE ISN’T COMPLETELY THROUGH WITH KASEY! WHAT THE WRONG IS FUCK WITH THIS GUY? HE COULD HAVE ENDED THE MATCH THERE! :noah:

(Jesse Barlow goes over to the top rope and situated himself on top of it. He has his eyes on Kasey Kaos who seems to be down and out.)

James Peters: It seems like Jesse Barlow is going to connect with Garden Dreams, the 650° splash! But, look at the ramp?!?!

(The National Elite Champion, Myles gets on the apron! He’s looking at Jesse Barlow, who has taken his eyes off of Kasey, and now has his focus on Myles.)

Jesse Barlow: (off-mic) Get the fuck outta here. This doesn’t concern you.

Persephone: Jesse is trying to pick Myles away from him, but Myles is blocking any impact of that leg, but sliding off the apron! Jesse is now getting off the top rope as he’s staring down Myles who is standing from ringside! Now, you see Hannah Marin getting close to him, making sure that he doesn’t get himself involved in this match with Jesse! Jesse’s focus is clearly on Myles, who is raising that National Elite Championship above his head!

James Peters: KASEY KAOS RISES BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE BOUNCES JESSE BARLOW AGAINST THE ROPES AND GOES FOR A ROLL UP! KASEY HAS A HOLD OF JESSE’S TIGHTS AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!

OOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Cry Little Sister’ begins to play once again as she rolls herself out of the ring before collapsing down on the bottom of the apron. Jesse Barlow is in complete shock that Kasey Kaos managed to roll him up. He’s trying to explain to the referee of his action. Meanwhile, you have Myles grinning at getting the upper hand on Jesse.)

Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION…KASEY KAOS!!!!

James Peters: Thanks to the assistance of Myles, Kasey Kaos manages to pick up the victory and get some momentum going into Road to Redemption!

Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow cannot believe that Myles got himself involved in this match, but Jesse probably would have gotten the victory over Kasey if it wasn’t for Myles presence. Myles is staring down at Jesse Barlow as he raises his National Elite Championship! Myles is letting him know that they got a match set at Road to Redemption!

Persephone: Good, this match is over.

(Kasey Kaos and Myles manage to stare each other down. It’s obvious that Kasey hates that Myles basically won the match from her, but Kasey does a ‘cut throat’ gesture, letting Myles know that is what will happen to him the next time they cross paths.)

(Another #EAWCares commercial begins to play this time featuring Myles who’s bullied every day over his hatred for One Piece character Sanji.)

(‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy hits as Donovan Duke makes his way out to the ring, feeling pumped up, especially after his win last week. He slides into the ring and is handed a microphone from the timekeeper’s area.)

Donovan Duke: How’s everybody doin tonight?!

(The virtual crowd pops in response.)

Donovan Duke: Glad to hear that, and the feeling is mutual for me. I’ve been feeling great the past couple of weeks. In fact, I’ve been feeling great since I won this New Breed Championship title shot back at Wicked Games. Sometimes I look back and still can’t believe I actually have this golden ticket in my hand. I hold an opportunity to do something I’ve dreamt of since I was a child, something everybody has told me my whole life I couldn’t do, which is become a champion. I promise that I will not let this opportunity pass me by, and I promise that I will not just be another title defense for Andre Walker. Andre and me have scouted one another in our own respective matches, and both of us have exchanged a few words about one another. Let me just say right now, I respect Andre a lot. I respect his journey he took to finally capturing that New Breed Championship. I know all the heartaches he suffered. I know of the classics he’s had in this company facing some of the top talent. But it doesn’t phase me and I refuse to be intimidated by someone who should be seen as superior than somebody like me.

Donovan Duke: I know I’m going to be the underdog in our championship match. That’s not anything new. We look at our resumes, clearly Andre is going to be favored due to people he has fought toe to toe with in this company and the experience edge he has over me. I’m not backing down and I want Andre to know that going into our title match. Nobody said I dominate the poker scene for as long as I did. Nobody, even my family told me I was never going to make it as a wrestler. Nobody thought I would get past somebody like Azrael in order to secure this title shot. I’ve been told I can’t do it my whole life and I overcame the odds each and every single time, and I have no problem doing it one more time in my biggest test yet not only in my career as a professional wrestler, but perhaps my life. A lot of competitors never get a shot like this wrestling for EAW, and I am aware of tha and know this might be my only chance, which is another motive to make sure I don’t blow this and I cash in on my opportunity. We’ve been at each others throat for a bit, but we don’t know when that match will take place. I want to achieve my dream on one of EAW’s biggest stages, Road to Redemption. The match must happen there. I feel like I’ve done a lot of the talking. I want to hear what the champion has to say. I want to hear what he thinks about us facing at Road to Redemption. Come on And–

???: Awwwww.

(Andre Walker walks out from behind the curtain in his casual attire with the New Breed Championship wrapped around his shoulder, while he wipes fake tears from his eye with his free hand.)

Andre Walker: How inspirational Donovan! You really had the waterworks flowing back there with your speech about how this is your dream and how this is the biggest opportunity of your life and you got all your friends and family counting on you….Oh my–GIVE ME A FUCKIN BREAK FAM! You’re giving this speech to hype yourself up as some sort of contender for my New Breed Title when you reek of pretender who just got lucky in a match with little to no competition and you simply were just the best of the worst back at Wicked Games. Everything about you fucking sucks. From your look, to your in-ring work, to even your little Southern shtick with that stupid ass accent you have. “Well I do declare I’m gonna be the next New Breed Champion even tho I know I stand no chance against a talent like Andre Walker. Durrrrrr!” Last time I faced a southerner, I whipped KKKensingten’s ass all around that ring. Ain’t nun gon change in our match, Donovan. I can guarantee you don’t wanna meet that same fate Kensingten did.

(Donovan Duke seems unamused and shakes his head with a bit of a grin looking up at the ramp, and Andre Walker begins to make his way to the ring still talking on the mic.)

Donovan Duke: You can’t compare an apple to a banana. Me and Kensingten are nothing alike. You’ll find that out soon enough.

Andre Walker: It’s time for you to get real with yourself. I hate people who follow the movie formulas and think the shit will happen in real life. Nuh uh, ain’t fuckin happening. We’re right here in reality, and your reality is staring you right in the face, mothafucka. As for your little challenge to fight at Road to Redemption….well sure why not. Because honestly, I have better things to do and better opponents worthy of facing me for this championship, so it’s best I get the charity case out of the way first. I truly hope you enjoy the paycheck and the exposure you’re going to get fighting against Andre Walker in a championship match on one of the biggest shows of the year. I’m sure you will give a solid fight, but you’re still gonna lose because you’re no match to me. This might literally be the easiest title defense ever. You say you respect me as a wrestler, well you better, because I’m the New Breed Champion for a reason, and I didn’t take this long to get over the New Breed Championship hump to lose it to someone like…..**you.**

(Andre steps into the ring and then comes face to face with Donovan cracking a smile at him. Donovan just nods his head.)

Donovan Duke: Blind confidence. That’s what you’re showing right now but you’re letting that shine from the championship keep you from seeing that. You’re letting it keep you from seeing the threat I am to you, the threat I am to this company, and the threat I am to that New Breed Championship. Don’t let our track records fool you. We have started at different times in our careers. I have done nothing but impress since the season began. I can say it won’t take me three tries in order to capture that title. For someone who screams about how good he is, it shouldn’t have took that long. You wanna talk about easy title defenses? Are we gonna ignore House of Glass or what? I’m sorry to break it to you pal, but I’m no Christian….whatever the hell his name was. You were blessed with that easy defense and do you wanna know something about that match…you almost lost! I’m no homeless looking attention seeking asshole, I’m one of the fastest rising stars in this company, and I’m gonna prove that when I do when I shock the world and become the NEW, New Breed Champion!

Andre Walker: That’s cute. The Christian defense is something I’m trying to put behind me but I did what I had to do. I got the job done. I’m standing here with a championship while you’re not, so slow your fuckin role bucko. You truly are a case of needing to lower your expectations. You honestly think you can beat a couple of bozos like Azrael and Lisa Wren and think you have what it takes to take this championship from me that I put so much blood, sweat, and tears into winning? :mjlol: Keep dreaming dude. I don’t care how this sounds, but you’re a stat padding defense. You literally do nothing for me with beating you. While you’re out here flexin bout beatin Lisa Wren and Eddie Magnum, I’m out sporting championship gold hangin with the likes of Chris Elite and Lethal Consequences on the A-show, Friday Night Dynasty! The quicker you realize you ain’t got shit on me, the better you’ll; be in the long run. You are just giving you, your family, and likely your two friends hope that you will be a champion here. You’re setting them and yourself up for inevitable crushing disappointment when I run circles around you, and make you my bitch while I continue on with my New Breed Championship reign.

Donovan Duke: You got a lot to say now, but I guarantee, once Road to Redemption is over, you won’t be having anything to say at all. There’s only gonna be one man walking into 2021 as the New Breed Champion, and it’s gonna be ME!

(Donovan drops the mic as Andre raises his eyebrows with a :usure: look. The camera then fades away to black.)

(PSA promoting the use of masks featuring HRDO and El Landerson.)

(The scene transitions back to ringside with Bella Braxton smiling as she stands by ready to introduce the next match.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!…

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Gangsta’ by New Year’s Day blares through the World 1 Theatre, and the response from the virtual audience is loud as ‘The Red Queen’ Ms. Extreme makes her way out on the stage.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…From Calabasas, California… She weighs in at ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE POUNDS…She’s ‘THE RED QUEEN’….MS!!!!!!!!!!!! EXTREME!!!!!!

(Ms. Extreme cracks her knuckles and then her neck before making her way down the ramp toward the ring, talking already, seemingly hyping herself up for this matchup.)

James Peters: Ms. Extreme has slowly but surely been building new momentum as she gets ready to face off with the woman joining us to our far right, the current Universal Women’s Champion herself, Serena Bennett. Serena, thank you for joining us here for this matchup.

Serena Bennett: My pleasure, James. Anything to get a close up of this matchup. This was one I definitely did not want to miss.

Rich Russillo: I definitely couldn’t agree more. This one promises to be a hard-hitting one. Darcy May Morgan needs a high profile victory, while her last time out Ms. Extreme was a bout to remember against the current EAW Champion, SOSA Henderson, where the two fell clear off the stage on a platform that collapsed down below. Let’s not forget this past week when she made her way to Dynasty with “Orange Carpet Treatment” where she had some choice things to say about you, Serena, not to mention the brawl you two had a couple nights earlier on Dynasty that may have ultimately led to what we saw at the end of that show with you and The World Heavyweight Champion The Visual Prophet getting eliminated from the Grand Prix by Mr. DEDEDE and Impact in the main event.

Serena Bennett: She’s had her fun, but that ain’t gonna be the case forever. She knows she about to get hers. She can keep talking, because she won’t be doing it for very much longer once I finally get my hands on her. Soon she fixin’ to get hers for thinkin’ she the shit. I’ll prove soon enough that she got nothin’ on me.

Persephone: That’s great, I’m sure. But can we get on with shit already, none of us are getting paid by the hour to talk about all of our soap operas.

Serena Bennett: Excuse me! Exactly what does yo critiques and lack of expertise add to this?!

Persephone: Plenty.

(‘Spotlight Savior’ by Iggy Azalea plays throughout the World 1 Theatre and the virtual crowd can be heard sounding off with a chorus of mixed boos and cheers as ‘The Leading Lady’ Darcy May Morgan makes her way out from beyond the curtain with her Cash in The Vault briefcase in hand sporting her dark tinted glasses.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…She hails from Kent, in the United Kingdom…She weighs in at ONE HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE POUNDS…She’s MS. CASH IN THE VAULT….THE LEADING LADY….DARCY!!!! MAY!!!!!!! MORGAN!!!!!

(Darcy holds up her briefcase for a moment in a pose before making her way down the ramp to the ring.)

James Peters: If you caught last week’s show then it comes as no real surprise at this woman’s actions last week, Rich.

Rich Russillo: Maybe not too much of a surprise, but definitely a questionable decision on her part. She cost her and ‘The Last Messiah’ Drake King the chance to be a part of this year’s Road To Redemption in the Extreme Elimination Chamber match, not to mention herself. Her hatred for Drake King superseded everything else, but now going forward she swears it’s time to stop going soft on everyone and bring back the Darcy May Morgan that made it all about herself and the success that she strives for.

Persephone: How many times does one have to fail to be considered a collosal disappointment? I’ve asked this question before with this one, I ask it again because I guess the verdict is still out but fuck. If she loses again can we just stop putting her ass on TV? Can we start hiding her on Fight Grid or something?

(‘Spotlight Savior’ by Iggy Azalea dies. Both ladies are in their neutral corners ready to go. There’s a brief stare down between the two elitists that are very familiar with one another. Ms. Extreme looks over to the commentary desk for a moment to the Universal Women’s Champion, Serena Bennett. Bennett simply responds with a brief grin and mocking type of wave. Ms. Extreme begins jawing in the direction of Serena Bennett.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Serena Bennett: Don’t mind me, y’all do your thing. I’m just here so I don’t get fined, or you know, gets me a front row seat to this fine action before I fixin’ kill a bitch at Road To Redemption.

Jame Peters: As this one gets underway, Ms. Extreme taking Ms. Cash In the Vault Darcy may Morgan, tell me Serena. Would you rather see a Ms. Extreme victory tonight, a loss, or does it matter? A collar and elbow tie up! Darcy May Morgan grabs the early advantage with a side headlock.

Serena Bennett: The apple never falls too far from the tree with these Ava bitches, always seeking some form of attention. Now I got you asking me whether I give two shits about one of them taking a W or an L against another bitch that self-loathes one moment and then be pointing the finger when she takes an L herself? What the fuck? It’s already enought that I have to deal with useless fucking bozos questioning my reign as the Universal Women’s Champ just because ain’t no competition stepping up. I don’t care who takes the fall, they all look the same when you looking down from where I sit whether they’re floating on a cloud of success or biting the dust.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme tries to transition out of the headlock but Darcy isn’t having any of it keeping her in place, she’s tired of coming up short this season and she wants this win for her confidence. She’s had success in the past against Ms. Extreme and she would certainly like to continue that here tonight as she gets closer to Road To Redemption.

Persephone: I can’t wait for this match to end, this is already boring the fuck out of me!

Serena Bennett: Girl please, shut yo ass up and call a match how it should be.

(Persephone’s mouth drops in shock, and wants to say something until Serena raises a stern brow. Upon this Persephone has second thoughts before looking away almost fuming on the inside that someone would actually tell her to shut her trap.)

James Peters: Ms. Extreme forces the action sending both her and Darcy May Morgan into the corner. Back elbow by Darcy just rocked the head and the jaw of Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme can’t believe Darcy struck her that hard and now she’s firing back at ‘The Leading Lady’! Darcy ducks under finally and avoids the forearm of Ms. Extreme! Shoot kick by Darcy is blocked by Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme with a go around on Darcy hooking her shoulder from behind with a schoolboy, but Darcy kicks out before the referee could slap his hand on the canvas.

Rich Russillo: Both elitists are back on their feet, and both tie up again. Each struggling to take the early advantage with neither giving ground. Ms. Extreme sends the owner of the cash in the vault briefcase to the ropes and Ms. Extreme connects with a flying spinning heel kick to Darcy, and now it’s Darcy that’s holding her jaw as Ms. Extreme grabs her by the hair with force but Darcy is already a step ahead as she charges forward shoving Ms. Extreme backwards into the corner! Now Darcy with repeated shoulder thrusts into the midsection of Ms. Extreme!

Serena Bennett: I see a lot of fight in these two bitches, but ain’t none of them fixing to outwork me. I don’t lace these boots up every week for any of these hoes to upstage me, and that’s what will happen in a couple of weeks. But you know, Darcy lookin alright.

Persephone: Yeah, if you like boring cat fights between blondes and redheads. They’re literally showing me nothing I didn’t see in the first match, or the second, the third, I think you get the point.

Serena Bennett: Or maybe you just don’t know how to call a match, so sit there with your thumb up yo ass while these two sitting beside you carry you to a paycheck week after week because you too dense in the head.

(Persephone, once again shocked that the Universal Women’s Champion would talk down to her while practically breathing down her neck, but once again she’s wanting to say something. Once again though, she just huffs a bit and looks away completely annoyed that Serena is out there right now.)

James Peters: Darcy May Morgan has grabbed control of the match now as she climbs to the second turnbuckle and begins raining fists down on Ms. Extreme in the corner before stepping back and locking the tights of Ms. Extreme and sitting her up now on the top turnbuckle, continuing to bury shots straight to the temple of Ms. Extreme. Ms. Extreme is wobbly up top. What’s going to happen here?

Rich Russillo: Dary’s definitely setting up for something. She grabs Ms. Extreme around her throat! And-THE DARLING DROP! ROPE ASSISTED KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS ON MS. EXTREME! DARCY GOING FOR THE COVER HOOKING THE LEG!

Ref: ONE!!!…TW-

James Peters; Ms. Extreme kicks out, but I’m kind of surprised to see Darcy pull something like that out of the bag so early. But as one might suspect, she’s gotta be pretty anxious to try and make a statement just before Road To Redemption. Darcy is getting back to her feet beating Ms. Extreme to the punch taking her back down with a snapmare takedown right into a headlock.

Serena Bennett: If this is all Camille can bring against Darcy, she can forget about doing anything beyond glancing at this strap when she goes up against the real deal, the Universal Women’s Champion. Once I’m on top of her like white on rice, it’s over.

Rich Russillo: Darcy is still holding onto the headlock, now transitioning into a chinlock. Now Darcy puts her knee into the back of Ms. Extreme and Ms. Extreme can really feel the pain setting in from this move by Darcy. Ms. Extreme using her strength though, she’s slowly but surely pulling the hand of Darcy off as she rises back up and Darcy realizes it and finally releases Ms. Extreme, but only to pull back on her hair slamming her head hard on the canvas! Darcy is full of fire as she looks out at the crowd and has some unkind words to say.

James Peters: She feels she’s not getting the proper respect that others on the brand have received and you can see how much it has gotten to her. Now she’s laying boots to the side and back area of Ms. Extreme. Now she grabs up Ms. Extreme by her hair once more with force but this time Ms. Extreme finally fires back! Ms. Extreme with a couple of huge forearms and she has Darcy May Morgan reeling back and now Ms. Extreme grabs Darcy by her hair and sends her toward the corner with force and she collides shoulder first with the corner ringpost!

Serena Bennett: Ouch! That one’s gotta sting! There’s no way Ms. Extreme will be able to bring that type of shit at me without me retaliating and putting her ass down. Darcy needs to get out and buy herself some time at some point. She’s in trouble.

Persephone: This is the best I’ve seen her all night, might mean this match is about to end which would be the greatest thing you could say about it, in my opinion.

Serena Bennett: Did anyone ask? This doesn’t appear to be your specialty as it is, since we’re giving our critiques here.

Persephone: I don’t need permission to give mine from blue-haired dykes.

Serena Bennett: Maybe you’d prefer getting every joint in your upper body stretched in ways they’re not supposed to in a matter of seconds after these two in the ring throw down? It would be during a commercial but the who audience here right now would get to witness a dumb vegan bitch like yourself getting the embarrassment of her life, your choice you keep flapping your mouth at me.

(Persephone knows deep down she is not a wrestler and doesn’t want to take her chances that Serena is bluffing. So she immediately changes gears.)

Persephone: On second thought, I love blue and it looks absolutely gorgeous on you.

Serena Bennett: That’s what I thought too when I chose it.

James Peters: Now Ms. Extreme pulls Darcy out of the corner and begins pulling and yanking at the hair of Darcy May Morgan! She’s swinging her like she’s a ragdoll and Darcy is screaming! Ms. Extreme is not playing around right now! Ms. Extreme finally releases Darcy and now grabs her up and sends her to the ropes, she ducks down but she ducked her head too early and Darcy catches her with a shoot kick to the midsection! Darcy hooks the tights of Ms. Extreme and a suplex by Darcy connects.

Rich Russillo: Now Darcy grabs Ms. Extreme up and now sends her to the outside, keeping the pressure on. Now she steps outside after Ms. Extreme and she sends Ms. Extreme crashing right into the barricade at ringside! Darcy continues pounding away at Ms. Extreme, the referee is at the count of three. Now Darcy sends Ms. Extreme-NO! MS. EXTREME REVERSES AND SENDS DARCY CRASHING INTO THE RINGSTEPS INSTEAD! NOW MS. EXTREME IS RUNNING RIGHT AT DARCY AND SENDS A HARD-HITTING KNEE RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF DARCY MAY MORGAN SANDWICHING HER HEAD BETWEEN HER KNEE AND THE STEEL RINGSTEPS!

(Ms. Extreme looks over to the commentary desk at Serena Bennett and points to her.)

Ms. Extreme: (off mic) That Universal Women’s Championship is gonna look real good around my waist. Keep it warm for me, Serena!

(Serena holds up the Universal Women’s Championship as she rises up for a moment.)

Serena Bennett: You ain’t at my level, bitch, and you’ll find that out real quick once I get my hands on yo ass!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme now rolls back into the ring, Darcy is still on the outside trying to recover. Ms. Extreme measuring Darcy, she’s got something in mind here. What’s she going to do? MS. EXTREME CHARGES FORWARD WITH THE REFEREE AT THE COUNT OF NINE! WHAT’S SHE DOING? SHE COULD GET THE VICTORY BY ALLOWING DARCY TO BE COUNTED OUT! BUT SHE OBVIOUSLY DOESN’T WANT TO WIN THAT WAY! SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES BY MS. EXTREME THAT KNOCKS DARCY MAY MORGAN BACK DOWN TO THE FLOOR! THE VIRTUAL CROWD LOVED THAT!

Rich Russillo: Both ladies are down after that, and the referee restarts his count. This time neither of them are able to get up right away this time. Both of them have been giving all they got in this matchup and you’re seeing the effects right now. At this rate they could find themselves counted out!

Serena Bennett: They can make back, they’re tough enough. I didn’t say they were weak-ass bitches, unless I’m wrong.

James Peters: And right on cue, both Darcy and Ms. Extreme begin to stir. The referee is at the count of six!

Ref: SEVEN!

(Both Ms. Extreme and Darcy have now reached the apron)

Ref: EIGHT!

(Both elitists are slow to slide into the ring)

Ref: NINE!

Rich Russillo: Both make it just in time, the referee was about to call this one! Unbelievable. This one does continue though, it’s Ms. Extreme that makes it up first and she’s approaching Darcy and now it’s Ms. Extreme taking it to ‘The Leading Lady’ sending a knee to the midsection! Now she has her from behind! German suplex by Ms. Extreme puts Darcy May Morgan on the canvas! Darcy is getting back up but she’s a little shaky on her feet as she tries to regather herself. She turns right into the TWIST OF FATE! SPINNING NECKBREAKER! MS. EXTREME HURRIES IN FOR A COVER AND THE HOOK OF A LEG!

Ref: ONE!!!…TWO

Serena Bennett: Not bad, not bad. Then again, we’re only talking about a move I’m not even sure my auntee couldn’t have kicked out of.

James Peters: Now Ms. Extreme once again has Darcy right where she wants her, and she’s pointing in your direction, Serena. She seems to have some more to say.

Ms. Extreme: (off mic) This is gonna be you in a couple weeks, champ! That belt is gonna be where it should belong, then the Women’s division will definitely be riding high!

Serena Bennett: Spoken like the delusional cac that she’s always been, and none of it means a thing as long as she ain’t wearing any gold around her waist.

Rich Russillo: And now Ms. Extreme forces Darcy into the corner, but Darcy strikes with a closed fist to the head of Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme can hardly believe it, and Darcy talking trash to Ms. Extreme this time. Darcy throws another shoot kick at Ms. Extreme but this time it’s caught by Ms. Extreme! Single leg takedown by Ms. Extreme! Darcy charges at Ms. Extreme after rising back to her feet but Ms. Extreme attempts to send her over the top rope back to the floor at ringside! No! Darcy lands on the ring apron instead! Ms. Extreme charges for Darcy but Darcy anticipated well and sends a shoulder thrust to the midsection of Ms. Extreme which sends her reeling back holding her midsection. Darcy now ascends up to the top turnbuckle in the corner and flies!

James Peters: FLYING CROSSBODY CONNECTS BY DARCY MAY MORGAN ON MS. EXTREME! NOW DARCY PICKING UP THE PACE AS SHE SENDS MS. EXTREME TO THE ROPES! FACE ACHE! THE BICYCLE KICK BY DARCY CONNECTS BUT MS. EXTREME IS FALLING AGAINST THE ROPES SHE’S STILL ON HER FEET! SITOUT SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS BY DARCY MAY MORGAN ON MS. EXTREME! WHAT A MATCH! WHAT A FINISH THIS WOULD BE IF SHE CAN GET IT! DARCY COVERS!

Ref: ONE!!!…TWO!!!..

Rich Russillo: And Ms. Extreme isn’t out of it yet! Darcy is not happy, judging by her slapping the canvas!

Serena Bennett: She’s competitive, I don’t blame her.

Jame Peters: Darcy is up and she puts Ms. Extreme into a headlock and she’s going for a bulldog, but it’s blocked by Ms. Extreme! She’s blocking it! Ms. Extreme begins sending closed fist shots to the midsection of Darcy! Darcy is firing off shots of her own to the head of Ms. Extreme! Now they’re both trading shots back and forth! THE PLOT TWIST! NO! EXTREME AVOIDS THE CONTACT! SHE HAS DARCY LOCKED IN FROM BEHIND! SHE’S GOING FOR ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! DARCY IS REACHING OUT DESPERATELY FOR THE ROPES BUT MS. EXTREME HAS HER! SHE’S GOING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT DARCY LANDS ON HER FEET! MS. EXTREME IS TAKEN BY SURPRISE! BACKFLIP HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN BY DARCY MAY MORGAN OF MS. EXTREME!

Serena Bennett: I seen this coming moments earlier. She’s looking for the big finish. I could see this going either way, but Darcy gets herself in trouble in these situations. Shits sad to see when you got all the talent in the world and you just can’t finish the deal.

(A loud yawn can be heard coming from beside Serena from Persephone, who looks bored as fuck and legit can’t wait for Serena to leave.)

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME AND DARCY MAY MORGAN LOCK UP AGAIN BUT THIS TIME MS. EXTREME IS TRYING TO GO FOR THE BELLY TO BELLY! HEADBUTT BY DARCY! DARCY GRABS MS. EXTREME! FACEBUSTER BY DARCY MAY MORGAN! MS. EXTREME IS TRYING TO RISE BACK UP BUT ONLY MANAGES TO GET TO HER KNEES, BUT DARCY ALREADY IS BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES! RUNNING DIVING DOUBLE KNEES TO THE HEAD OF MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME IS DOWN! DARCY ONCE AGAIN GOES FOR THE COVER HOOKING THE LEG!

Ref: ONE!!!…TWO!!!….TH-

James Peters: MS. EXTREME KICKSOUT AGAIN! Darcy’s now glaring at the referee now. She could be having flashbacks in her head of Wicked Games, because it was there that a referee in many people’s opinion decided the match. That one stills sticks with her as one that could’ve and should’ve belonged to her. Ms. Extreme is certainly another name, that if you can beat her, looks good on anyone’s resume if you can beat her. Wouldn’t you say so, Serena?

Serena Bennett: Nah. You seem to forget, James. There’s levels to this shit, and neither one of them have proven they’re on mine because they ain’t holdin the gold, while twice I can call myself a World Champion. Until one of them reaches this level it’s them that needs to defeat me to boost their resume not the other way around. My resume just proceeds itself when I beat them, believe me there’s a difference.

Rich Russillo: ‘The Leading Lady’ gets back to her feet, while Ms. Extreme is somewhat shaky and out of sorts. Now it’s Darcy that sends Ms. Extreme to the ropes but Ms. Extreme immediately reverses it! It’s Darcy that hits the ropes instead and look at this! Ms. Extreme with a great deal of athleticism hops off the second rope for a diving calf kick that takes the current Cash In The Vault holder off her feet! DARCY IS BACK UP BUT BARELY! SHE’S STAGGERING BUT HERE COMES MS. EXTREME AGAIN OFF THE SECOND ROPE GRABBING DARCY AROUND THE HEAD AND TAKING HER DOWN! SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG CONNECTS! NOW THE HOOK OF THE LEG BY MS. EXTREME!

Ref: ONE!!!…TWO!!!…THRE-

James Peters: Darcy May Morgan shoots a shoulder up off the canvas! Ms. Extreme just sits up, running a hand through her hair, now shaking her head. Both of these ladies are laying it all on the line just as you would expect they would. Neither one wants to let this one get away.

Serena Bennett: It’s definitely the home stretch, let’s see what they got.

(The shot makes it’s way over to Persephone who’s now shown with her nail polish out doing touch ups on her nails, Serena looks over for a moment only to shake her head in disbelief thinking to herself how this woman could even have a job right now.)

Rich Russillo: Darcy just rolled out of the ring, looking to buy herself some time to recover this time but Ms. Extreme is in close pursuit. Now both begin slugging it out back and forth they go! They’re right here near us, almost close enough to the touch.

Persephone: Uhh!!! GREAT! Well, they aren’t about to mess up the touch ups I’ve done on these stunners.

(Persephone does a onceover of the work she did on her nails in admiration before she books it from the scene as the back and forth spills even closer to the commentary desk.)

James Peters: Once again another fight involving Ms. Extreme appears to be spilling out of control, a couple of weeks ago it was with the EAW Champion SOSA Henderson, and this time Darcy May Morgan is the opponent. What’s gonna happen here?

Serena Bennett: They better keep there dis-shit!

Rich Russillo: BOTH DARCY MAY MORGAN AND MS. EXTREME JUST FELL ONTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO GET THEM BACK IN THE RING BUT ISN’T HAVING ANY SUCCESS AT GETTING THROUGH TO EITHER ELITIST! MS. EXTREME JUST GOT A BOOT FULL TO THE FACE FROM DARCY MAY MORGAN! SERENA BENNETT WHO’S BEEN WITH US FOR THIS MATCHUP JUST STOOD UP! SPEAR!! SPEAR BY MS. EXTREME! SHE JUST SENT HER MOMENTUM INTO DARCY AND THEY BOTH FLY OVER THE ANNOUNCE TABLE AND HAVE KNOCKED DOWN THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! SERENA IS OUT OF SORTS ON THE GROUND! THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO GET ORDER BACK TO THE MATCH!

James Peters: MS. EXTREME IS DOWN IN A SITTING POSITION JUST INCHES FROM THE DOWNED SERENA BENNETT WHO’S TRYING TO GATHER HERSELF! DARCY IS CRAWLING OUT OF THE MESS, AND NOW MS. EXTREME TURNS TO SEE SERENA! PERHAPS REMEMBERING THE LAST TIME THEY WERE THIS CLOSE IT TURNED INTO AN ALL OUT BRAWL! AND A MS. EXTREME SENDS A CLOSED FIST SHOT TO THE HEAD OF SERENA BENNETT! SHE’S GOING AFTER-NOW FROM BEHIND IT’S DARCY MAY MORGAN POUNDING AWAY AT THE BACK OF MS. EXTREME AND NOW DRAGS HER UP BY HER HAIR AND FORCES HER INTO THE RING WHERE THE ACTION CONTINUES!

Rich Russillo: Serena are you okay? Serena?

(The Universal Women’s Champion is seen sitting up after the cheap shot by Ms. Extreme, untangling herself from the headset she was just wearing and tossing it away to the side in disgust. Off in the distance to the left undetected, Persephone is shown covering her mouth, trying to keep from laughing at Serena’s misfortune and pretty relieved she’s finally getting up to leave. Serena finally emerges from beyond the commentary desk with a look of rage in her eyes at ringside, she’s incensed.)

James Peters: Ms. Extreme whips Darcy into the ropes, BUT WAIT A MINUTE! SERENA BENNETT IS ON THE RING APRON! SERENA HOPS ON THE TOP ROPE AND IN ONE MOTION LEAPS OFF IN A SOMERSAULT! MODIFIED SOMERSAULT PLANCHA OFF THE TOP ROPE JUST TOOK OUT BOTH MS. EXTREME AND DARCY MAY MORGAN!

(DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: SERENA JUST ENDED THIS MATCH AND ANY CHANCE THAT EITHER MS. EXTREME OR DARCY MAY MORGAN HAD OF WINNING TONIGHT!

Bella Braxton: Due to outside interference from Serena Bennett, this match ends in a double disqualification!

James Peters: I DON’T THINK SHE CARES! SERENA BENNETT CANNOT BE STOPPED! SHE’S ABSOLUTELY POUNDING AWAY AND BEATING THE UNHOLY HELL OUT OF MS. EXTREME! DARCY MAY MORGAN HAS LEFT THE RING! SHE’S JUST GRABBED HER CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE AND SHE’S BACKPEDALING UP THE RAMP LOOKING ON! MS. EXTREME TRYING TO FIGHT BACK BUT SERENA BENNETT IS OBVIOUSLY THE FRESHER BODY IN THE RING RIGHT NOW! SERENA IS WINNING THIS SLUGFEST EASILY RIGHT NOW! MS. EXTREME TRIES TO BLOCK THIS ALL OUT ASSAULT BY THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, BUT SHE’S HELPLESS TO THIS ONSLAUGHT! SO MUCH FIRE BEHIND THESE FISTS OF FURY BY SERENA!

Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK! IT’S DRAKE! THE LAST MESSIAH DRAKE KING IS WAITING AT THE TOP OF THE RAMP! I DON’T THINK DARCY REALIZES AT ALL AS SHE’S BACKING UP! WAIT…WHAT’S DRAKE LOOKING TO DO?? WHAT’S DRAKE GETTING READY TO DO HERE?! DARCY TURNS AROUND-THE GUILLOTINE!! DRAKE JUST LAID OUT DARCY WITH THAT SICK KICK AND SHE IS OUT!! DRAKE IS LOOKING DOWN AT DARCY WITH A DEADPANNED LOOK ON HIS FACE!! HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING ALL ALONG! NO WORDS NEED TO BE SAID IN THIS SITUATION!

James Peters: IF YOU TUNED IN LAST WEEK THEN YOU’LL REMEMBER THAT IT WAS DARCY MAY MORGAN THAT SPIT IN THE FACE OF DRAKE AND LEFT HIM TO THE HOUNDS SO-TO-SPEAK IN THE CORONA HOMBRES AFTER HAVING THEM BEAT MAKING THINGS PRETTY ACADEMIC MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR TLA TO GET INTO THE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH WITH A CHANCE TO WIN THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! NOW IT’S DRAKE…HE’S EYEING THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE OF DARCY MAY MORGAN! IS HE GOING TO…YES HE IS! DRAKE KING JUST GRABBED UP THE BRIEFCASE OF DARCY MAY MORGAN AND LOOKS DOWN AT HER ONE MORE TIME SHAKING HIS HEAD! DRAKE IS DEPARTING THE SCENE! BUT WHY?? WHY DOES HE HAVE THE BRIEFCASE?? WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN!!?? FOLKS WE’LL BE BACK!

(Voltage fades back to ringside, and Bella Braxton stands in the center of the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The Following Contest is the Main Event of the evening and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!

Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: It is an Extreme Elimination Chamber Match preview! Introducing first, from The Warehouse! Weighing in at 290 pounds! Accompanied to the ring by his manager, Mr. Jacobs, he is AZRAEL!!!!!

(The arena goes dark, red lights and smoke form at the beginning of the entranceway as Girei by Yasuharo Takanashi begins to play, Mr. Jacobs walks out with Azrael behind him, he has a collar and chain to hold back the monster until they get to the apron. Mr. Jacobs leads him into the ring and holds Azrael back as he looks around at the Virtual Crowd.)

James Peters: Main Event time and we see the monster, who qualified last week over Shane Gates with a huge win and some may even say an upset. Now he faces the EAW World Champion, SOSA Henderson who he laid out last week, and is now ready to step into the Chamber and defend the title against five wrestlers who are looking to take it from him.

Rich Russillo: And what we have seen from Azrael, this might be an ill-advised match to have considering how uncontrollable this monster is.

Persephone: He is ugly.

(As Azrael’s theme starts to fade it is replaced by “Faneto” by Chief Keef. Azrael turns to the entranceway and looks on as the EAW World Champion slowly walks out.)

Bella Braxton: His opponent! Hails from Philadelphia, PA.! Weighing in at 191 pounds! He is the EAW World Champion! “BULLETPROOF” SOSA HENDERSON!!!!!

(SOSA poses with the World Title for a moment before making his way toward the ring, looking around at the Virtual Crowd, before sliding in, suddenly Mr. Jacobs releases the chain and Azrael is loose attacking him as the referee calls for the bell.)

(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

James Peters: AZRAEL IS ATTACKING SOSA WHO STILL HASN’T TAKEN OFF HIS RING GEAR! THE REFEREE CALLED FOR THE BELL AND THE MATCH OFFICIALLY IS ON THE WAY! AZRAEL IS LAYING THE BOOTS TO SOSA WHO CANNOT EVEN GET OFF THE GROUND! NOW HE IS HITTING SOME MASSIVE HAMMER SHOTS TO THE BACK WITH THOSE CLOSED FISTS AND SOSA I DON’T THINK SAW THIS COMING!

Rich Russillo: He didn’t and that was the mistake he made, a crazy, monster like this who was just recognized by the EAW as a top star in the company has been here three months and is already getting a World Title shot which has not sat well with many in the locker room, but the reality is, he earned it, and taking out Shane Gates was a part of that, and now he is sending the message to the World Champion himself! Picking him up from the mat, he SCOOPS HIM UP IN THE AIR…. LAUNCHING SOSA HALF-WAY ACROSS THE RING!

Persephone: Maybe we can go home early tonight, I can finish watching The Queen’s Gambit.

(SOSA tries to get his jacket off, Azrael walks right up to him and yanks it off his back, he slaps him with it a few times before throwing it on the outside.)

James Peters: Azrael is picking up SOSA, he whips him into the turnbuckle, charging in, HUGE SPLASH! SOSA is in a lot of trouble early in this match! AZRAEL AGAIN SCOOPS HIM UP FOR A HUGE BODYSLAM AND NOW HE IS CHOKING SOSA!

James Peters: Azrael breaks the hold as Mr. Jacobs instructed him to, he was not going to listen to the referee. Azrael picks SOSA up, a few vicious forearms to SOSA, hoisting him over the shoulders and this man is 6’8” and 300 pounds! He outweighs SOSA by 100 pounds here! Walking to the turnbuckle, SNAKE EYES! NO! SOSA WAS ABLE TO CRAWL AND FALL OFF THE BACK OF AZRAEL AND TO HIS FEET, A DROPKICK BY SOSA AND AZRAEL CRASHED INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CHEST FIRST, SOSA GOES FOR A LUNG BLOWER, NO! THE BIG MAN HELD ON! SOSA LANDED HARD ON HIS BACK AND NECK! HERE COMES AZRAEL, PICKING UP SOSA, A KNEE BY SOSA ON HIS CHIN! AZRAEL STUMBLES BACK! ANOTHER BY SOSA AND NOW HE IS RUNNING THE ROPES, CLOTHESLINE!

Rich Russillo: THAT HAD ABSOLUTELY NO AFFECT ON AZRAEL! SOSA WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE THIS TIME THE BIG MAN IS REELING BACK! SOSA ONCE AGAIN WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE AND AZRAEL FALLS OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT LANDS ON HIS FEET! SOSA RUNS THE ROPES, ASAI MOONSAULT! AZRAEL FALLS INTO THE BARRICADE AND SOSA IS BACK ON HIS FEET!

Persephone: Come on, I thought this was going to be an early night!

Rich Russillo: The Referee is beginning the Ten Count!

James Peters: The referee’s count was stopped as SOSA wants to win this match in the ring! He is up to the top rope and …. SOSA BOMB! HE HIT THE SOSA BOMB AND HE IS COVERING THE MONSTER FOR THE PINFALL!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Persephone: He threw him off like he was a ragdoll!

James Peters: That is true Persephone! SOSA Henderson was launched off by Azrael is who sitting up, SOSA with a hug stiff kick to his chest, and another! And another but Azrael is getting back up to his feet, SOSA hooks his head! GOING FOR THE FLYING DDT BUT AZRAEL THROWS HIM OFF! SOSA LANDS ON HIS FEET BUT IS NOT QUICK ENOUGH TO RESPOND TO THE LARIAT! SOSA FLIPPED IN THE AIR AND THAT ALMOST TOOK HIS HEAD OFF! AZRAEL FOR THE COVER!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Persephone: How did he kick out? Let me guess, this is why he is the World Champion, right?

Rich Russillo: That is right, Persephone, SOSA is resilient, and he was able get out of that predicament, but the World Champion is starting to see that this monster could make the difference in the Elimination Chamber. Azrael starts to choke SOSA again this time he breaks it before the referee counts! He chokes him again and getting a stern warning by the referee as he picks up SOSA by the hair, whipping him into the ropes, BIG BOOT BY AZRAEL AND SOSA IS DOWN! AZRAEL IS STALKING HIM AS SOSA IS TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, RIGHT INTO THE HAND OF AZRAEL AND A CHOKESLAM! THIS HAS TO BE IT!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: SOSA KICKS OUT! HOW THE HELL DID HE KICK OUT! WE TALK ABOUT AZRAEL, BUT WHAT ABOUT SOSA!? HE IS TAKING A BEATING AND STILL HANGING ON WITH THIS MONSTER OF A MAN! Azrael is not done though; he wants to send a message to the World Champion before the huge FPV and a win here tonight would be a huge step toward that goal. Azrael lifts SOSA to his feet, he grabs him into a Bear Hug! He is trying to squeeze the life out of SOSA right now! Flailing back and forth, like a rag doll! Azrael is screaming as SOSA is trying to fight for his life!

Rich Russillo: Imagine the pain! The humility! If Azrael were to make SOSA submit! AZRAEL SQUEEZES AND SOSA IS SHAKING HIS HEAD, THE REFEREE IS RIGHT THERE ASKING HIM BUT HE IS QUICKLY SCREAMING “NO”! TTHOUGH HE IS FADING! How much more can he take!?

Persephone: Quit, fight another day, let’s end thee night so I can go home.

Rich Russillo: SOSA is starting to go limp; Azrael is so relentless and not letting go! The referee might call this one! Lifting his arm once and it DROPS! The referee raises the arm again and it DROPS! One more and SOSA HENDERSON IS DONE! HE LIFTS IT A THIRD TIME…. IT DR…. NO! SOSA’S ARM IS STILL UP! HE WAS ABLE TO HOLD IT UP AND THIS MATCH IS NOT OVER! SOSA SLAPS THE EARS OF AZRAEL WITH THE BELL CLAP! HE LET’S GO OF THE BEAR HUG! The damage is done, SOSA is reeling, he is feeling the effects of the bear hug and Azrael is a little dazed. SOSA is fighting with everything he has, SUPERKICK! AZRAEL IS STILL ON HIS FEET BUT HE IS STAGGERING! SUPERKICK AGAIN!

James Peters: AZRAEL IS STILL ON HIS FEET AFTER TWO SUPERKICKS AND BICYCYLE KICK! AZRAEL BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND BICYCLE KICK AGAIN AND AZRAEL FALLS! SOSA RUNS TO THE TOP ROPE, MOONSAULT AND HE HIT IT HARD! HOOKING THE LEG FOR THE COVER!

Persephone: We are not leaving early, are we?

THE CROSS FACE! SOSA HAS LOCKED IT IN! HE IS PULLING HARD AND AZRAEL IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! HE COULD GET A SUBMISSION VICTORY RIGHT HERE!

Rich Russillo: SOSA HAS THE MOVE LOCKED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND AZRAEL HAS NO WHERE TO GO! LOOK AT MR. JACOBS! HE IS FREAKING OUT! I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM MORE ANXIOUS UNTIL NOW! WE ALREADY SAW AZRAEL TAKE OUT SOSA LAST WEEK, THIS TIME THE CHAMPION IS IN CONTROL! THE REFEREE IS RIGHT THERE ASKING THE MONSTER BUT HE IS NOT SUBMITTING AND SOSA PULLS BACK EVEN HARDER!

(“Faneto” by Chief Keef starts to play throughout the arena as SOSA Henderson slowly gets to his feet, the referee raises his arms in victory, but Azrael is getting right back up. SOSA sees this and rolls out of the ring, grabbing a chair and rolling back in the ring.)

James Peters: SOSA is not done; he was able to win with a cheap shot and then that vicious cutter. SOSA showed why he is World Champion, but he saw Azrael rise back up and he is getting a steel chair!

Rich Russillo: HE JUST CRACKED THE STEEL CHAIR OVER HIS HEAD! AZRAEL IS STILL GETTING UP, HE HITS HIM AGAIN RIGHT OVER HIS HEAD AND AZRAEL LOOKS DOWN AND…. NO! HE IS GETTING BACK UP! THIS MAN IS INHUMAN! SOSA AGAIN CRACKS THE CHAIR ON HIS HEAD! THAT IS FOUR TIMES NOW! AZRAEL IS FINALLY DOWN AND MR. JACOBS IS LOOKING ON SCREAMING, BUT WAIT! AZRAEL IS SITTING BACK UP!

James Peters: WE WILL SEE BUT WE ARE OUT OF TIME TONIGHT! FOR PERSEPHONE AND RICH RUSSILLO, THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US AND GOOD NIGHT!

(Terry Chambers and SOSA surround Azrael trying to figure out what the hell they must do to keep this monster down, who stands over the fallen TLA staring at them while Ms. Jacobs laughs.)
