(EAW intro plays.)
(The recap for last week’s Voltage is shown as always. It shows Shane Gates coming out talking about how he was robbed of the Number One Contendership for the National Elite Championship. It instigates a big argument between both Adam Lucas and Sienna Jade with all three of them. Before long all of them agree with Shane Gates being added to the match after a big brawl with Sienna coming out on top in the end. Lisa Wren then goes on to defeat Molly Quinn as well in a highly competitive match. Along with Kasey Kaos getting a win against Azrael in a very interesting match. It also continues to go on with the Brand Warfare Voltage team in which they bond with one another, each showing different things to the others. Which kicks off with TLA and the Poon Palace. Ahren and the Garden of Affectional Tempest, Myles and movie night in his dingy apartment, and of course, and Minerva and a shooting range with the targets being certain members of the Brand Warfare match itself. It then continues on to Conor Ryan and Donovan Duke facing two very interesting enhancement talent participants, in which they win. But in the end, it’s Parental Advisory who attacks both of them, with Donovan out of the picture, they proceed to injure Conor Ryan and then proceed to end his career, leaving Donovan partnerless for the time being. It then goes to SOSA Henderson talking about his run in EAW and talking about how his story is going to have a happy ending, and it ends by winning the EAW Championship at Territorial Invasion. It then moves on to Korey Gaines getting a quick win over Puma X and ending the match. Then moving on to Terry Chambers also getting a win over Shane Gates both showing the potential that both have heading into Territorial Invasion. Then proceeding to an intense match between Candice Blair and Minerva which ends in a no contest when Serena Bennett throws two Crip A Cola bottles into the ring before the match can finish solidifying her dominance in this one. Ms. Extreme then has an interview with Sofia Clarke talking about how she wants to be the old Ms. Extreme again, one who doesn’t get bitter about her losses and it’s apparent that it would start by beating Kasey Kaos at Territorial Invasion and talking about other things like her aspirations before sending a message to Kasey which ends the interview. It then moves on to Jake Smith vs Myles vs Xander Payne which first ends in a no contest, but then after Captain Charisma completely restarts the match, ends in Xander Payne getting the win via count-out making a big statement for his Brand Warfare team heading into Territorial Invasion. It then moves on to the Voltage Wargames Team as it centralizes on Drake King getting over his Sarah Price/Visual Prophet problem which results in him going awol and stabbing a cardboard cutout of Sarah Price multiple times, which gets him completely in the game for WarGames which then transitions into a promo of the same nature in the ring with all the members stating their intentions and getting ready to demolish the competition in their way. Then finally the main event which is an intense matchup between Darcy May Morgan and the EAW Champion Rex McAllister ends in Rex winning but also spills into a brawl with the other WarGames teams and all the Brand Warfare teams! It ends in Voltage coming out on top with the shocker of Drake King caving Sarah Price in multiple times which ends the show)
(The screen then transitions to the EAW Performance Center as the socially distance crowd begins to cheer in response as the camera pans around the arena before finally panning over and focusing on the announcer’s team of Rich Russillo, James Peters, and Persephone)
James Peters: WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE! WE ARE CONTINUING ON THE ROAD TO TERRITORIAL INVASION AS I AM HERE WITH RICH RUSSILLO AND OF COURSE, PERSEPHONE! And we’re glad to join you all here on this splendid Sunday!
Rich Russillo: Don’t we have a lot to show you? Not only with an intense tag team match with both members of the EAW Championship match teaming with one another to face 2/3ths of the people in the National Elite Championship match tonight in what should be a very interesting bout consisting of the competitors in this one! And of course, we cannot forget our main event as the WarGames Voltage team of Darcy May Morgan, Drake King, and Malcolm Jones are going up against the Brand Warfare team of Ahren Fournier, Myles, and Minerva tonight!
Persephone: BLASPHEMY! REX NOT IN THE MAIN EVENT! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS! But oh well, I go through this every other week. You just get used to the pain 😃. But whatever let’s just get to his match quickly CMON CMON!
(Seemingly on queue, ‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson plays up to a mixed reaction from the crowd as Kasey Kaos makes her way out to the stage. She has a wide smile on her face as in her hand is a microphone which she slowly taps every so often with wide eyes as she does so, focusing on the ring with piercing eyes. She stretches her arms towards the ring for a moment before closing her eyes as she rolls in after making her way down the ramp. ‘Cry Little Sister’ fades out as she makes her way to the center of the ring and begins to speak)
Kasey Kaos: Oh yes Ms. Extreme, we have heard you. You have stated your intentions and we hear it with wide open ears, not leaving you with such lingered in the air, that would be a bit bitter right? It is clear we both are seeing this in different eyes, compared to you? We are clearly much different in mindset right? We do not plan to walk over you, that is not in our intentions, the only thing that we see in the eyes of the truth is the fact that we must be the ones to come out the winner, don’t you think? You’re right there is no preparing for what’s to come with you, but to say you are more unpredictable than us? That is a massive understatement, for you have not faced anyone like us before. You do not know us as we know you. You might think of yourself as such a tough figure, broad stature, imposing fear, but you have not faced anyone like us before. You may compare us to the cretin that is Adam Lucas but both of us are much different. As you’ve said clearly, that level of unpredictability. As much as you may think otherwise, you are not prepared for what is to come in our hands, for we have control. So you continue to think otherwise, we are not going to stop you. Create this blanket of insecurity that will cover you all the way to Territorial Invasion, but it won’t be long before it’s peeled back and exposed. Then maybe then? Maybe then you’ll see what we were talking about all along, and it’s far from what you may think.
(Kasey gives a pause for a moment letting her words linger in the air, but it doesn’t last long as quickly ‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day plays up as Ms. Extreme makes her way out to the stage with a mic in her hand as well. Instead of waiting she wastes no time making her way down to the ramp with a high level of intensity as she does so. She quickly slides into the ring with cuts off ‘Gangsta’ as she gets into the face of Kasey Kaos before slightly scrunching up her face as she begins to speak)
Ms. Extreme: You want to think that? Just as you said to me, you go thinking that. You go think I’m not prepared for some reason and let me be the one to tell you that’s a bunch of bullshit if I ever heard it before. I’ve said this already and it’s clear already, I’m tired of being people’s stepping stone, I think that’s pretty dumb in my opinion. If you think that type of thing is going to continue from Bloodsport to Territorial Invasion, you’ll be direly wrong in that case. You’re not going to reach bigger and better things because of me, I’m just not going to let that happen, pretty simple. I am going to continue my legacy like it or not because believe me when I say there is a lot of naysayers around here that pray on my downfall, and that’s not going to stop me, I’ll be damned if that ever does, might as well fucking kill me before that ever happens and I resort to listening to the masses and whatever the hell they have to think about me when they have no speaking power in this situation whatsoever. I am going to destroy you at Territorial Invasion Kasey and believe me, there is going to be no doubt in what I have coming after that. I’ll make sure of it, but if you really want to poke the bear? Step up, I’m sure you’ll regret it.
(Kasey looks away for a moment as Ms. Extreme keeps her eyes on her, she gives a laugh for a moment before focusing back in on Ms. Extreme with a big smirk on her face)
Kasey Kaos: We like a feisty one don’t we? And we also know, just how much you absolutely adore fire.
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD! KASEY THREW A FIREBALL RIGHT AT THE FACE OF MS. EXTREME!
James Peters: NOPE! MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO DUCK UNDER IT AS SHE’S QUICKLY GETTING RIGHT BACK UP WHILE KASEY IS OFF GUARD! TWIST OF FATE! KASEY IS DOWN AS MS. EXTREME IS ALREADY CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE! A BLIND FURY! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP RIGHT ONTO THE CHEST OF KASEY CONNECTS! MS. EXTREME HAS SENT A MESSAGE!
(Ms. Extreme looks down on Kasey with the same cold expression as she held as she entered into the ring as she drops down and rolls out of the ring. As she leaves Kasey is seen recovering and sitting up. Kasey gives a loud laugh in response to Ms. Extreme in which Ms. Extreme pays no mind to it. As the last shot is Kasey still in the ring, continuing to laugh as the camera fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Alexa starring Xander Payne lounging by his pool and asking for more shitty Brockhampton music to be played because they’re part of his summer vibes.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ringside area.
(‘No Sleep Leak’ Instrumental By Lil Uzi Vert starts playing as Puma X walks through the entrance ramp with a serious look on his face because last week he lost to Korey Gaines in an anticlimactic fashion. The announcer, Bella Braxton is ready to start her introductions as Puma X is seen walking to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: The following singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, making his way to the ring, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 185 pounds, he is THE SKILL OF X…. PUMA X!!!!
James Peters: Determined to win, this is probably a match that he needs to get a victory from. Even if his opponent will be a tough challenge, I’m sure that he’s ready.
Persephone: He isn’t ready at all. I highly doubt that he is going to win this match.
Rich Russillo: Last week, Korey Gaines got him but he got help to do it. Donovan Duke doesn’t rely on his friends to help him win matches so this is going to be easy for Puma X.
Persephone: You’re too confident in this small guy.
James Peters: If we don’t have confidence, there is no way we can win.
(As Puma X is having a normal warmup session, ‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy kicks in. The crowd begins cheering as Donovan Duke makes his way out to the stage, and before long he makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring, not wanting to waste any time. He is ready!)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Stillwater, Oklahoma, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is the Oklahoma Gentleman, DONOVAN DUKE!!
James Peters: This man beat Molly Quinn before, he competed and almost won at Bloodsport. He almost got his chance there.
Persephone: Territorial Invasion is very close and you want to talk about Bloodsport? Give me a break. This is just going to be a filler.
Rich Russillo: A filler isn’t always bad. Maybe both of them will be recognized a lot in the future. However, only one will stand out this time. You know Donovan must have a lot on his mind after what went down with Conor Ryan and Parental Advisory last week. Hopefully he can put all that aside and focus on this match.
(Donovan has gotten in the ring as well, and both men are now ready. The referee calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And the match is underway and both wrestlers already tried to push one another to the ropes. However, Donovan Duke got the lockup in as he managed to gain control, Puma ran and tried to push him but Duke went down on one knee to stop the energy. Duke with a couple of elbows to his head, Duke let go and tried to get him to the turnbuckle but Puma bounced from the turnbuckle and a Tornado DDT was perfectly executed!
Rich Russillo: Now, Puma X with the headlock of his own, not letting him go. Puma with a German Suplex grab, but countered as Duke went to the ropes, lariat ducked, Puma X with a handspring elbow, mocking Duke but he missed! Duke with a German Suplex!!!!
Persephone: Whatever. These moves are probably enough to finish that janitor off.
James Peters: Puma X is now seen grabbing the ropes right now as Duke got him out of the ring this early in the match! Duke with a Tope Con Hilo attempt, PUMA X WITH A SUPERKICK!!!!! Now X grabs him and throws him to steps, HE MIGHT CRASH BUT HE MANAGED TO JUMP OVER IT AND HE GOT BACK INTO THE RING!!!
Rich Russillo: Puma X quickly ran into the ring, they both charged to each other but PUMA X WITH A HURRICANRANA COUNTERED WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB BY DONOVAN DUKE! CAN THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN BEAT THE SKILL OF X?!
James Peters: He isn’t pinning, though. He pushed X back before grabbing his head, OH SNAP DDT! Now he is going for the pin.
Referee: ONE!!! TW-
Rich Russillo: Fast kick out from Puma X! Donovan Duke quickly went outside to get some assists from the ropes, Somersault Leg Dr- X moved out of the way and Duke knew about it, which is why he quickly landed on his own two feet, SLINGBLADE FROM PUMA X!!!! DONOVAN DUKE WITH A KIP UP AND A KICK TO THE BACK OF X’S HEAD! DONOVAN QUICKLY GRABBED HIM BY THE HEAD BUT X PUSHED HIM TO THE ROPES, X QUICKLY WENT TO THE ROPES FOR A TIGER FEINT KICK, HE CHARGED BUT DONOVAN DUKE THREW HIM UP IN THE SKY, CAUGHT HIM, NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!!!!
James Peters: Donovan Duke quickly throws him to the turnbuckle! A cannonball! He is down on one turnbuckle and another cannonball is done and he is down!!!! Duke quickly got him again for a German Suplex and OHHHHH PUMA X ROLLED!!!!!! HE IS ON TOP OF THE COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!! TW-
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT! PUMA X QUICKLY WENT OUT OF THE RING AS THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN IS GETTING FURIOUS!!!!! HE QUICKLY FOLLOWED X OUTSIDE AND TRIED TO ATTACK HIM WITH A LARIAT BUT X DUCKED AND A SUPERKICK TO DUKE’S FACE!!
James Peters: This is some fast paced action by both men! Duke is seen grabbing his face and PUMA X WITH THAT DRAGON SUPLEX OUT OF NOWHERE SENDING DUKE HEAD FIRST TO THE APRON!!!!! HE QUICKLY THROWS DUKE BACK IN THE RING AND HE GOT THE COVER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!! THR-
Rich Russillo: You see that agility, that stamina level shown by Donovan Duke, he knows that this could be a way for him to be noticed. However, that spot was nasty! You can see that Duke is hurt as he is grabbing his head in pain. The medical team came to help him, asking him if he can still go, and he said yes!!!! That was just a normal spot, nothing more than that. Head damage is the most dangerous damage to any professional wrestler ever.
Persephone: If he gets injured, we will no longer have boring matches. Pretty fair if you ask me.
James Peters: :mjwhat: By the way, now that X gained control, he is just mocking Duke by kicking his head endlessly. Puma X is asking the fans, why are they booing him? Pretty obvious if you ask me. And now, multiple elbows and a throw to the outside will do it for Puma X. He went to the top rope, posing in front of the audience as he prepared them for his magnificent maneuver! DIVING TORNILL- HE MISSED HIS TARGET!!!!!!!
Persephone: Don’t get too cocky next time, idiot.
Rich Russillo: You are being a little bit too harsh on the guy. Now, both wrestlers are down! Haha, looks like we might get a countout draw! However, Donovan Duke is preventing that from happening as he went into the ring before lying in the middle. Donovan asked the referee if he could do another high flying move!!!! The referee and him had an interesting conversation…. THE REFEREE ALLOWED IT!!!! Duke quickly charged to X, TOPE CON HILO!!!!! DUKE QUICKLY THROWS X TO THE STEPS AND X WENT FLYING! X LANDED ON HIS BACK! Duke quickly got him back into the ring for the cover. Is this enough to put him down?
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!!! THR-
James Peters: ANOTHER KICK OUT BY PUMA X!!!! Duke quickly grabs X’s arms and legs, HE IS GOING TO GO FOR IT!!!!! ROLLED HIM OVER INTO A BOW AND ARROW HOLD!!!! X IS SCREAMING IN PAIN RIGHT NOW!!!!! HE IS GOING TO BE LET GO, THOUGH. Thank god for the ropes nearby, he managed to get out of the submission but Duke isn’t letting him go easily as he made sure that X bounced with a kick to his back! Duke quickly got him up for a headlock again! Duke got him to the turnbuckle again! Duke with a Stinger Splash, missed! Puma X escaped and did a Dropkick to Duke! Puma throws him to the ropes, Duke with a sudden Hurricanrana, X landed on his feet, went for a Dropkick but he missed his target, Donovan Duke with a German Suplex attempt and PUMA X CHANGED IT INTO A SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!
Rich Russillo: Puma now, throwing Duke to the turnbuckle, Corner Dropkick! Puma with a sudden cannonball!!! Puma now, full of confidence, threw Duke to the ropes as Duke is seen trying to survive, TIGER FEINT KICK TO HIS FACE!!!! PUMA WITH A HURRICANRANA ATTEMPT, BUT HE GOT CAUGHT! DUKE THROWS HIM UP AGAIN, NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!!!!! DUKE GOT HIM UP, THREW HIM, HURRICANRANA AND X LANDED ON THE TURNBUCKLE BUT OHHHHH, HE MANAGED TO JUMP OFF AND LAND ON THE ROPES, SLINGSHOT JUMPING NECKBREAKER!!!!
James Peters: PUMA X QUICKLY WENT FOR THE COVER, COULD THIS FINALLY BE THE ENDING FOR THIS MATCH?
Persephone: Just see, the referee is going to count to three but some things happened and Duke becomes Superman.
Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!! THR-
James Peters: DUKE GOT HIS SHOULDERS UP!!!!! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!
Persephone: Predicted it.
Rich Russillo: As you can see, Puma X really can’t believe that Duke managed to survive after all that damage to his head! Puma X quickly went outside, SLINGSHOT SENTON ATTEMPT: MISSED AGAIN!!!!!!!! DUKE WITH HOPEFULLY THE FINAL HEADLOCK IN THIS MATCH! Multiple elbows to X’s face and ONCE AGAIN, HE’S THROWN OUTSIDE OF THE RING, DUKE RUSHED TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, MOONSAULT, MISSED! X RAN INTO THE RING, IT IS HIS TURN, SHOOTING STAR PRESS HIT DONOVAN DUKE!!!!!! HE THROWS HIM BACK INTO THE RING AGAIN, THIS TIME HOPEFULLY TO END THE MATCH!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!! THR-
James Peters: NO!!!!! DONOVAN DUKE ALREADY TOOK TOO MUCH TORTURE!!!! HOW CAN HE SURVIVE THAT MANY?!
Rich Russillo: DETERMINATION is the word that you might want to hear after that! He isn’t giving up at all. Now, Puma X grabs him up again, this time putting him on the top turnbuckle slowly as it looks like they are going to dance in the air, Puma X and Donovan Duke are both ready to fly and PUMA X WITH HIS SIGNATURE MOVE, PUMA FLY!!!!!! PUMA X HAS HAD ENOUGH, HE GRABS HIS BACK IN PAIN BEFORE LOOKING AT THE TIRED DONOVAN DUKE, HE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!! THR-
James Peters: He did not.
Persephone: How? What? I want Rex :noah: Not this shit.
Rich Russillo: THE MATCH DIDN’T END THERE! Wow, you see that, Voltage management? Donovan Duke is a perfect package. Puma X is seen punching the ring right now! He is angry and he starts arguing with the referee!!!!! He pushed the referee!!!!! AS THE ARGUMENT IS OVER, PUMA WAITED ON THE CORNER FOR HIS OPPONENT TO GET UP. TIME TO FINISH HIM OFF FOR GOOD!!!! However, since Donovan Duke took so much damage, it’s too hard for him to get up. Puma X is now mocking him. He sits in front of him while clapping his hands.
James Peters: Puma didn’t stop there. He shouted “This is my moment!”. He is really fired up, HE WAITED PATIENTLY AND NOW THE TIME IS RIGHT, HE WENT TO THE ROPES, HANDSPRING CUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT- COUNTERED BY DONOVAN DUKE WITH HIS OWN FINISHER, ROYALLLLLLLLLLL FLUSHHHHH!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD!!!!!! THIS IS AMAZING, DONOVAN DUKE WENT FOR THE PIN! THIS IS IT! I REPEAT: THIS IS IT!!!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Persephone: Predicted the outcome. I told you guys that the Puma X guy isn’t ready for Voltage.
James Peters: What do you mean he’s not? This match just showed that he deserved to be here.
Rich Russillo: Perfect showing from both men. However, Duke got the best out of it, mainly because of his great great memory. He remembered that Puma X got his back hurt after he missed the Diving Tornillo. Puma, however, didn’t go for the head which led to his failure.
James Peters: I agree. If Puma can remember things that occured during a match properly, he can perform consistently next time. Good job to him, but I’m excited to see what they have for Donovan Duke. He is going to be a star!
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, DONOVANNNNN DUKEEEEE!!!!!!!
(‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy starts playing as Donovan Duke got his hand raised by the referee. He quickly went to Puma X who is almost unconscious and he grabs him up. Duke helped him get to the ropes. As X managed to stand up with the help of the ropes, both of them did a handshake, giving respect to one another.)
(Voltage fades into a promotional ad for Territorial Invasion.)
(A promotional ad hyping up the EAW World Championship match between Rex McAllister and SOSA Henderson begins to play. Can SOSA stop Rex’s title reign prematurely and fulfill his destiny of becoming a bonafide star? Or will the cagey and intelligent Rex halt whatever momentum SOSA has and send him back down the ladder? Tune in as Territorial Invasion comes to you live on free-per-view on September 26th, 2020!)
(Voltage returns and cuts to a video package filmed earlier this week.)
(SCREEN BAR — EARLIER THIS WEEK — 7:00 AM.)
(It pans to the sunless skies of Los Angeles, California, where the area is feeling the effects of the wildfires occurring within the state. Candice Blair exits out of her condo in Malibu, California. Despite being up quite early, Candice puts on a smile on her face. At least, that’s what’s seen through the diamond stuffed face mask. She has a pink Gucci purse within her wrist as she looks at the camera ahead of her.)
Producer: (off-camera) Good morning, Candice. You seem to be very energized this morning.
Candice Blair: It’s something that I’ve made a habit after conversations with Jamie. He really advised me to get up early and get the day started. Mostly, as a sign of discipline, but since I’ve become a bit more committed to wrestling, it’s really helped me with planning out my day before leaving the house. Now, come on. We got a huge day ahead of us.
(Candice Blair walks forward to her pink Rolls Royce, which estimates to over $300,000. It was a present from all of her sisters for her birthday earlier this year. She is completely in love with the car. The camera captures different angles of the car before panning forward to Candice already in the car. Candice pulls out her phone before looking at it.)
Producer: (off-camera) Where off to first?
Candice Blair: Starbucks. I need my Pumpkin Spice Latte. Do you want anything?
Producer: (off-camera) I’m good.
Candice Blair: I’ll get you a coffee. You’re going to need all the caffeine if you’re going to be following me around all day.
(It forwards to Candice Blair driving as she reaches Starbucks. It forwards to Candice exiting out with two drinks in her hand before giving one of them to the producer.)
Producer: (accepts the drink with one of his hands) Thank you.
Candice Blair: ‘The Hot Commodity’ cares about the people. Not many women in this company can say the same thing.
Producer: (off-camera) What stands you out from the other women in this company?
Candice Blair: Everything. I’m obsessed with myself, but I recognized that I got my flaws. A lot of these women are so obsessed with wins and losses. ‘Omg, I lost a match! What does that do for my reputation!’ My sisters are some of them. Meanwhile, I shrug my shoulders and move on. I learn from my experiences and use them to help me for the next time. Something I learned from Camille, but she’s been a bit of a hypocrite lately, but she’s learning. She’s trying to improve herself and I admire that. Now come on, we got shit we need to do.
(SCREEN BAR — 10 AM.)
(Candice Blair gestures for the producer to follow her. The scene pans to a gym in Malibu. There, Candice is getting her sweat on. Candice has rented out the gym for her to work out. It shows Candice on the treadmill. Candice is going at a moderate pace as she looks at her phone which is resting on top of all the buttons. Candice is trying to watch Serena Bennett’s match at Bloodsport. The same match in which she won the Universal Women’s Championship.)
Candice Blair: She’s a terrible person, but she’s a fighter. I guess that’s her background. She fought her way out of Compton just like she had tried to fight herself out of irrelevance that she spent the majority of Season 13 in. I mean, we all have our skeletons in our closet. I’m far from perfect.
Producer: (off-camera) Elaborate.
Candice Blair: (pauses the treadmill before looking at the producer) Years of addiction with drugs, alcohol, and party scene. I was a completely different person back then.
Producer: (off-camera) I’m sorry to hear that.
Candice Blair: I don’t want any sympathy. I know that whatever vulnerability I show, that bitch is going to use as material. Like we’re supposed to ignore that she tried making us all feel bad for her personal issues a month ago? She’s a manipulative bitch. It’s how she operates. She constantly tries to get underneath the skin of people, but the moment that she gets a dose of her own medicine, well, she gets defensive and shifts the conversation elsewhere. It’s typical Serena Bennett.
Producer: (off-camera) Have you done some research on her?
Candice Blair: I do my research on everyone. Now, come on, let’s head to the weights.
(It continues on with Candice Blair’s work out where she is seen lifting weights, rope workouts, and any other workouts that test out her endurance. As soon as Candice is done with her workout. It shows her back in her car as she’s head off to somewhere.)
(SCREEN BAR — 12:30 PM.)
Candice Blair: I needed that workout, but the day is still young and we got quite a few things to do the agenda.
Producer: (off-camera) Where are you off to next?
(Candice Blair has a smirk on her face.)
Candice Blair: You’ll see.
(SCREEN BAR — 1 PM.)
(About a half an hour later, it pans to a contemporary home in Los Angeles, California. Candice Blair parks her car near the driveway as she exits out her car and goes near the door. She has a rose gold iPad and white diamond pencil in her grasps. A door is heard opening as Candice rushes over to embrace her older, pregnant sister, Cameron Ella Ava.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Hi, it’s cool that we’re here. They just got paint samples out on the patio outside.
(With that, the two sisters go inside the house. It pans to the patio where Jamie O’Hara and Candice’s trainer, Desmond Helms are sitting at the patio, looking at paint samples. Cameron takes a sit down next to her husband as Candice pulls out an empty seat next to Desmond. The conversation goes on for about ten minutes as there’s a small montage of everyone looking and debating on paint samples.)
Cameron Ella Ava: So, I was thinking about this color for the baby’s nursery…
(Cameron Ella Ava shows Candice Blair a squared shaped sample of the paint color. Candice begins to scribble some notes to her iPad.)
Producer: (off-camera) Is this something that you do in your daily life?
Candice Blair: When I’m not wrestling, I like to take hobbies. I normally see something that looks cool and roll with it. I’ve sung, danced, played instruments, but something that I’ve been attached to is designing. Whether clothes or even something simple as a nursery, it’s one of the few platforms that allows me to be creative and do whatever my heart desires. Normally, Desmond builds shit and I design, and I guess, that balances us out. It’s kind of strange. What started as Jamie just handing my number to Desmond to harass me, turned out to be a partnership between the two of us. :wow:
Desmond Helms: We need a television show. We’d be fucking great at this shit.
Candice Blair: Let me take over EAW before I take over the designing world. :wow:
Desmond Helms: We’re still on for training tonight?
Candice Blair: Yes, I need to help. Can I throw you across the ring? :oh:
Desmond Helms: I got other plans. :mjlit:
(SCREEN BAR — THAT NIGHT — 9:30 PM.)
(It pans to Desmond Helms completely rag dolling Candice Blair across the ring inside the gym of the Ava-O’Hara estate. Candice begins to back away to one of the corners, but Desmond rushes towards her before nailing her with a corner clothesline! Candice stumbles forward as Desmond hooks her by the arm and connects with a hip toss. Candice finds herself in a seated position as Desmond follows that up with a calf kick, taking Candice to her back.)
Desmond Helms: The fuck you doing on your back? This isn’t a one night stand. Get back up.
(Candice Blair finds herself to her feet as she goes for a collar-and-elbow lock up on Desmond Helms, but it doesn’t take much effort for Desmond to push her against the horizontal set of ropes.)
Desmond Helms: That form was fucking awful. I could do a better collar-and-elbow with 8 VBs in my system than you can sober. Let’s go again.
(Normally, Candice Blair would respond to it, but instead, she doesn’t say a word. Desmond Helms has a method to his madness and he did make Jalyn Garcia into a New Breed Champion and she’s hoping that he can help her get her first championship. She goes for another lock up on Desmond before he applies a wrist lock on Candice, but Desmond ends up kicking her in the lower back, knocking her down to her knees.)
Desmond Helms: Get up, princess. I’m not giving you short cuts. I have the possibility of having a student of mine becoming World Champion and I won’t accomplish shit by going easy on you. People say that you’re undeserving of this match.
(Candice Blair gets up and looks at Desmond Helms.)
Candice Blair: Those people are wrong.
Desmond Helms: People say that your last name got this match.
Candice Blair: Once again, they’re wrong.
Desmond Helms: People say that Serena Bennett is going to dog walk the shit outta you. You really let an ugly bitch like Serena do that to you?
Candice Blair: Yeah (she flips her messed up blonde hair) that’s never going to happen.
Desmond Helms: Prove it then.
(Candice Blair and Desmond Helms resume the training session. This time, it’s Candice’s turn in beating the shit out of Desmond. Every now and then, Desmond gives her feedback on her form and her execution as Candice is really absorbing the feedback. Each time she does a move, she gets better and crisper in the ring. She almost becomes a force to be reckon with. The training session with Candice connecting with the ‘Candy Destroyer’ on Desmond and taking him down for the three count.)
(SCREEN BAR — 11 PM.)
(It pans to Candice Blair sitting on the edge of the apron, looking at the producer, who had spent the entire day with her. Candice has a mini white towel wrapped around her neck. She is completely exhausted. Desmond basically killed her in training, but she felt herself become better.)
Producer: (off-camera) How are you feeling after your training segment?
Candice Blair: It was grueling, but I like it that way. Since Desmond agreed to train with me, I asked for no shortcuts. I didn’t want him to go easy on me. Since signing into this company, people thought that things were going to come easy to me. It’s the narrative that these people have of me. ‘The Avas had it so easy!’ Well, people are gonna ignore the first few years of Cameron’s career. They wanna tear her down like she couldn’t body any of these women. Same with Consuela and Camille, who have more than stood on their own outside of the Ava last name. They wanna be like ‘well, Cameron was the face of a dead division,’ but bitches like Serena Bennett would be fucking jobbing to the Heart Break Gal because she isn’t as good as she hypes herself to be. All this beef with the Avas? It’s the most one-sided beef that anyone could have, but I’ve had enough with all of that shit. People can talk all they want, but I am going to ether the shit out of Serena Bennett at Territorial Invasion.
(Candice Blair says that with a smirk on her face before continuing.)
Candice Blair: Once I become Universal Women’s Champion, enough with all this talk about my sisters being the reason for my existence in this company. Enough with my looks getting in the way of my wrestling. Yeah, me being beautiful and being great at wrestling does make people make, but I don’t give a fuck about that. I made the decision to dedicate my time and my life to this, and all of you will have to get used to seeing this FOURTH Ava for a long time. Because win or lose at TI, and I’m not stopping, giving up, or letting myself fall. I will catch myself if I stumble, and I will make sure the entire world differentiates me from Cameron Ella Ava, Consuela Rose Ava, and Ms. Extreme. Because I’m not them. I’m me. I’m Candice Blair, a future world champion.
(It pans to Candice Blair giving one of those friendship handshakes to Desmond Helms before hugging Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava before leaving their house. Candice looks at the producer.)
Candice Blair: Well, nothing much to my day, but it’s always busy in the life of Candice Blair Ava. If I’m not helping out Cameron and Jamie with their baby preparations, I’m normally doing media, photoshoots, or anything wrestling related. But, it’s getting fucking late and I need to get back home and sleep. Goodnight. 💋
(Candice Blair goes back to her car before driving away. The scene fades elsewhere.)
(The cameras pans to the ring where Bella Braxton stands by ready to introduce the next matchup.)
Bella Braxton: The following triple threat matchup is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Hell on Heels’ by Pistol Annies then plays up which gives a very loud reception of boos to the person that’s coming out. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor makes her way out to the stage with a fan in one hand and a handbag in her other. She fans herself with a smirk on her face as she looks around and can only give a snicker in response to the crowd’s response to her. She then begins to strut down to the ramp and make her way down to the ring with class)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… hailing from Savannah, Georgia… she weighs in at ONE HUNDRED FORTY THREE POUNDS…… SHE’S ‘THE STEEL MAGNOLIA OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING’… KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Well, she’s not had the best luck in the ring since making her return. Her latest undoing in the ring happened just a couple of weeks ago, which was also a triple threat match that involved ‘The Natural Born Killer’ Shane Gates and ‘The Next Level’ Adam Lucas, and certainly she had her opportunities, but it just wasn’t to be for Kensingten Calhoun-Astor.
Rich Russillo: Well, if Mr. Mullet hadn’t stolen the match, we’d be looking at the true number one contender to the National Elite Championship. But tonight she has another opportunity to redeem that loss in yet another triple threat match. She’s defending her turf whether she cares about that or not. She can’t let some scrubs from Showdown come on the A-Show and take this. It just wouldn’t be right!
(‘The Man’ by The Killers begins to play as Taven Storm makes his way out, showing an air of confidence about himself on the way to the ring. His one off appearance doesn’t seem to elicit much of a reaction from the crowd as he does.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent….hailing from Birmingham, England…he weighs in at ONE HUNDRED NINETY FIVE POUNDS….HE’S KNOWN AS THE ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA’….TAVEN!!!!! STORM!!!!
James Peters: Here is the first man straight over from Showdown. He’s not really gotten his career off the ground just yet, but Taven Storm looks like he is primed and ready to take a step in that direction tonight.
Rich Russillo: That’s a wait and see for me, personally. The man comes from Showdown, and it’s not like that brand has a real good track record of making new stars lately. This man still has a ways to go if he wants to start making it a career, but he’s gotta start somewhere right?
(‘Cha-Ching!’ by UNIQUE replaces ‘The Man’ and out walks returning elitist, Maxwell. The fans of Voltage seem to remember his short time with the Voltage brand, because they seem to provide a mixed reaction from his re-appearance in EAW even though he’s now a part of the Showdown brand. Maxwell takes his time slowly sauntering to the ring.
Bella Braxton: And Introducing last, their opponent…hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada….he weighs in at TWO HUNDRED THIRTY ONE POUNDS…He’s ‘THE INELEGANT ONE’….he is MAXWELL!!!!!
Persephone: Ah, he’s kinda cute, but he’s no Sexy Rexy. Sorry, not sorry. But he’s making a comeback, so let’s see where it takes him from here.
James Peters: Indeed. You’re right about that, Seph. Not about your continued flirtation with Rex, but that Maxwell is making his return to EAW! He’s been away for a while, but he’s back in the ring tonight and how fitting that he’s making his return on the brand that signed him last season. This could be a big opportunity for Maxwell to leave back to Showdown heading into Territorial Invasion with a good deal of momentum on his side. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Getting this match underway we have neither competitor holding back as we see both Kensingten, Maxwell, and Storm all rush each other to try and find the early advantage, but just when it seemed safe to say that Maxwell and Storm have the early advantage, I stand corrected because we already see Maxwell and Kensingten ganging up on the least experienced of this matchup which is Taven Storm!
Rich Russillo: Is this necessary? I don’t really see how this can possibly be fair, if you asked me. I thought the rules of a triple threat match were pretty clear that it’s each competitor for themselves! Come on, get in there ref!
Persephone: Oh, quit your bitching, Rich! You and I both know each competitor knew what they signed up for from the time the ink was still wet on their contract. This is what they live for, right!!?? Even though there’s still nobody who could possibly ever do it better than my sexy piece of meat, the greatest wrestler to ever do it, Sexy Rexalicious!
James Peters: Be that as it may, Kensingten and Maxwell still working together as they send Taven Storm, who’s yet to get a lick of offense in, to the ropes. A double back elbow takes down the young lad from Birmingham, England! Now Kensingten and Maxwell are stomping a mudhole into Taven! Taven is doing what he can to cover up but it’s no use, this attack is being orchestrated quite well by two elitists that are showing how much hungrier they happen to be! I think young Tavern wanted to be able to come over to Voltage this week to have a good showing, but I think both Kensingten and Maxwell had other ideas!
Rich Russillo: Right. And even though Maxwell is also from Showdown, that makes a lot of sense! He doesn’t want to be shown up!
James Peters: Rightfully so. Nobody likes to be shown up by a rookie, nobody. Kensington was so close to securing herself a National Elite Championship match in a triple threat match that came down to the wire just a couple of weeks ago, but wasn’t to be! Maxwell, of course, used to be a part of Voltage, now on Showdown, has been looking to become the next breakout star. What a victory this would be for him. And Taven? Well, goodluck kid, because you’re going to need it at this rate!
Persephone: Did this guy with the fugly hairstyle and this blonde sassy little bitch talk out this match before they came out? I’m just curious, because not once have they let up on this new guy Storm? Maybe they’re getting paid under the table to take this fellow out, because this is brutal already. Not that I’m against that! Rex could do it better though is all! He’s done it all! And I can’t wait to see him later. Maybe I’ll finally ask him if he can divorce that whore that’s been missing from his life because she’s been whoring herself around, poor Rexy, and I can give him the type of woman he truly needs in his life!
James Peters: I’m sure Rex would-nevermind. I can’t fathom it actually. Maxwell holding up Taven Storm who’s looking dazed! Maxwell has his arms restrained so he can’t defend himself and Kensingten is just taking the most vicious swings of her balled up fists right to the face of Tavern Storm! She said she believed Taven to be a man of entitlement that doesn’t have what it takes to be here, and I guess Maxwell must agree with this! Maxwell just shoved a staggered Taven Storm right toward ‘The Steel Magnolia’ who delivers a spike DDT to Taven! Just as it looked like Kensingten was going to follow up with the cover, Maxwell immediately cuts her off with a vicious bicycle knee strike that knocks her back! Now it’s Maxwell going for the first cover and perhaps looking to steal this matchup already!
Rich Russillo: That low down, dirty snake Maxwell almost did the unthinkable! He almost came onto Kensingten’s show and stole a victory! What a travesty that would’ve been! It’s bad enough that this woman had to suffer the indignity of watching another man just a couple weeks ago do practically the same thing! Now Kensingetn, she’s in no mood to allow that to happen again on her watch! It doesn’t matter that Maxwell has his opportunity coming up at Territorial Invasion as part of Team Ronan, he simply has no right to come on this brand Voltage just to embarrass one of our promising young elitists in Kensingten!
James Peters: Indeed. Maxwell has quite the opportunity ahead in a couple of weeks to make a pretty good impression on his return here tonight as TI gets closer and closer folks, but right now Kensingten has control of things in the corner with these forearms and shoot kicks! Maxwell trying his best to shield off this attack! Ms. Steel Magnolia is quite frankly on fire right now! Now she shows her strength by hoisting Maxwell up onto the top turnbuckle and she climbs up with him now! She wastes no time in delivering-No! Wait a minute! Maxwell snaps out of his funk and shoves Kensingten off where she falls back and hits the canvas hard! She’s a little shocked as she hurries to recover, but Maxwell already had his next move planned out! Missile dropkick to the back of the head of Kensingten! Kensington couldn’t defend herself! That’s completely unsafe and uncalled for by Maxwell, but he doesn’t seem to even care! Kensington looks nearly out of it as Maxwell follows up with another pinfall attempt to end the match right here!
Persephone: Really? What’s this bitch really trying to prove!!?? We have other matches to get to I hope they know! This is the furthest one on this low budget card matchmaking that anyone wants to see! Please spare us the fight until you fall bit! Save it for matches that we all want to see. Like when Rex defeats three other people all by himself, which he’ll do without even breaking a sweat! Greatness always shines, don’t you forget that. Now hurry up!
Rich Russillo: Seph, sweety, I doubt they care. Oh, now Storm trying to find his way into this match but he’s staggering back to his feet, and Maxwell was quick to get back up and meet the occasion! Storm is using those ropes for leverage but Maxwell isn’t about to let this kid up, he sends Storm over the top rope with a powerful clothesline!
James Peters: Taven Storm hits the ground hard outside right out in front of us here! He’s in no man’s land, and Maxwell is wasting no time as he rolls under the bottom rope to where Taven is! Like a predator, Maxwell is stalking his prey, waiting to pounce! Taven on all fours, but not for long. Maxwell grabs him by his bangs and yanks the young man up!
Maxwell: (off mic) You ain’t in my league, son! I’m the only one from Showdown that gets to shine tonight, boy! You ain’t worth the dirt I dust off my boots!
Rich Russillo: Maxwell really putting the bad mouth on this rookie right now, while Kensingten continues to try recovering inside the ring! These two Showdown elitists are fighting it out to see who can represent their brand the best, but it’s clearly one-sided at the moment! I feel like Taven just didn’t show up with his A-game tonight!
James Peters: I believe that would have to serve as an understatement! Now Maxwell smashing the face of Taven Storm right into our announce table! Once! Twice! Thrice! Four times! Enough is enough, Max! The kid has a family to go back to just like anyone else.
Rich Russillo: You think Maxwell cares about that!!??
Maxwell: (off mic) Do I look like someone that should!!?? This guy doesn’t belong in the big leagues! He’s done after this!
Persephone: Say it don’t spray it! Wow. How rude!
James Peters: Maxwell locks the arms Taven and turns the man and delivers the Wheel of Misfortune! The rolling unprettier on the floor! How’s he going to get up from that? We got Maxwell celebrating here on the outside, admiring his handy work! Maybe a bit too much gloating too soon as this match is not over yet.
Rich Russillo: I think you may be right! Kensingten from behind! She’s grabbing Maxwell from inside the ring by his hair! She’s forced Maxwell to rethink his game plan, and now both are trading forearms as Kensingten stands in the ring and Maxwell just outside on the apron! But Kensingten appears to be getting a little bit better of this exchange! Maxwell is tiring, and Kensingten is looking to take advantage! Kensington hooks the tights of Maxwell! She has Maxwell up!
James Peters: Oh my! High angle vertical suplex over the top rope by Kensingten Calhoun-Astor to Maxwell who lands spine first on the mat, and he’s feeling the effects of that impact! Kensingten doesn’t appear to be done however! She grabs Maxwell back to his feet and whips him to the corner hard, and the momentum behind that whip nearly sends Maxwell over the turnbuckle to the outside, but he instead lands awkwardly on his head! Kensingten sees quite the opportunity here to continue her attack! She charges right at Maxwell who’s legs are entangled in the corner! BARKIN’ UP THE WRONG TREE!! THAT DEVASTATING KNEE STRIKE ATTACK CONNECTS! WHAT A SHOT! KENSINGTEN GOES FOR THE COVER!! THIS COULD BE IT!
Rich Russillo: It doesn’t get any closer than that! Kensingten needs to bring the win home! Come on Kensi, do it for Voltage! Don’t let this douchebag from Showdown get the best of you!
Persephone: If this were a time limit match and I was the timekeeper this match would’ve been over already. These two are starting to bore the fuck out of me. I mean, like, there’s three people in the match but it’s clear only two seem to give a shit about ending it whereas the other just wants to sleep out in front of us here. So pathetic!
James Peters: I think it’s quite obvious that Taven Storm is out of it after suffering the effects of that devastating impaler like move! He still has an opportunity to get back into this if he can make something of a recovery! Kensingten and Maxwell seem to be going back and forth, taking turns with the momentum making it anyone’s game here! Kensingten has Maxwell up again and she whips him to the ropes, but she had half a mind to go for the A LITTLE TOUCH OF SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY AS SHE MET MAXWELL AT THE ROPES BUT MAXWELL HANGS ON!
Rich Russillo: You gotta admit that’s a smart move, and now the referee is getting in there to make the count which means Kensingten has to release the attempted submission maneuver. The referee gets to four and Kensingten does let go, and immediately Maxwell ducks a clothesline from Kensingten who wanted to cut him off and delivers a flapjack! The flapjack connects! Oh no! Not like this! Cover by Maxwell!!
James Peters: Kensingten showing some resiliency by kicking out just before the two count there! Kensingten has been a fighter from day one, and there’s no doubt that she’s destined to do great things if she can manage to get past the first couple of hurdles in her career, which is gaining more toughness and experience to compliment the natural skill and talent she brings to the ring! Maxwell, has Kensingten back up now, and THE MONEY MAKER BY MAXWELL!! THE ROLLING RIPCORD ELBOW IS CAUGHT!!! KENSINGTEN IS TRYING TO BRING DOWN MAXWELL WITH SOMETHING TO CRY ABOUT! THE KIMURA LOCK!!! CAN SHE BRING MAXWELL DOWN!!
Rich Russillo: The man known as ‘The Top Dollar’ could see quite an unfortunate end in his return match! Kensingten does bring him down! Maxwell is yelling out in pain, and Kensingten is definitely cinching that submission hold in! Maxwell desperately looks around toward the ropes and his positioning but he’s nowhere in sight to making a play for safety to get Kensingten to release the hold!
Persephone: Thank God that pansy is about to cry uncle! It’s about fucking time!
James Peters: Not so fast! Look! It’s Taven, and he’s slowly crawling into the ring! He’s trying to get to the center of the ring where Kensingten has Maxwell at her mercy!! He’s been battered and beaten for a majority of the match by these two, but he could be on the comeback trail! Maxwell looks as though he’s about to submit! His hand is literally about to tap the canvas! Come on, Kensington! You got this! No! No she doesn’t because Taven jumps in at the last possible moment and with an axe hammer smash to the head of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor which breaks the submission! Maxwell rolls to the side and it’s Taven that stumbles back to his feet trying to meet head on with Kensingten who’s not happy that her chance to win was broken up by this Taven Storm!
Rich Russillo: Wouldn’t you be? Taven goes for a wild clothesline that gets nothing but air as Kensingten avoids the contact! Bulldog delivered by Kensingten to Taven! Taven is down again, as he can’t seem to catch a break in this matchup! Taven is trying to show some toughness as he recovers, but he’s back to his feet! But Kensingten is right there to meet him from behind, showing her tremendous strength once more as she lifts Taven off the canvas! SHE’S GOT HIM UP! SHE COULD BE GOING FOR BLESS YOUR HEART!! THE ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER COULD SEAL THE DEAL!!! MONEY MAKER!!! THE RIPCORD ROLLING ELBOW OUT OF NOWHERE BY MAXWELL WAS SO VICIOUS IT JUST KNOCKED KENSINGTEN STRAIGHT TO THE OUTSIDE THROUGH THE ROPES WHERE SHE LANDS HARD!!! TAVEN STORM DROPPED TO THE CANVAS BUT HE’S TRYING TO RECOVER!!! MAXWELL HAS TAVEN UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!! IT’S TOO LATE!! TIME HAS RUN OUT ON THIS YOUNG LAD’S CHANCES TO WIN THIS MATCH FOR HIMSELF!! MISSING FRAGMENT!!! THE FIREMANS CARRY CUTTER CONNECTS!!! MAXWELL WITH THE COVER!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Cha-Ching!’ by UNIQUE and with that, ‘The Top Dollar’ Maxwell hurries to his feet where he strikes a pose for the social distanced crowd in attendance, who don’t seem all that impressed that a Showdown combatant was able to steal one tonight on Voltage. The referee is there to raise Maxwell’s hand to signify his victory in the triple threat match.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner of this triple threat match….MAXWELL!!!!!
Persephone: It’s about fucking time! I really hope all the other matches aside from the one sexy Rexy will be in tonight will not go on for this long!
James Peters (sarcastically): I’m sure you have nothing to worry about, Seph. But one thing is for certain. These fans here at the Performance Center expected quite a different outcome, and that didn’t happen here tonight.
Rich Russillo: Can you blame them? A Showdown competitor actually came onto our great show and took the victory here, and there’s nobody to blame for that but the lady that should’ve fought with more valor than she did. If she had I’m certain it would’ve been an entirely different outcome!
James Peters: I wouldn’t be so hard on Kensingten Calhoun-Astor. We all know she’s someone that was homegrown straight from this very Performance Center! She did well tonight, and there were occasions where it looked like she could come away with the win, but it just wasn’t to be. She’ll bounce back. Maxwell showed he had the sheer ruthlessness to go after what he wants, and he clearly wanted to win this match before he heads into Territorial Invasion. Congratulations to the winner of this triple threat match, Maxwell!
(The final shot shows Taven Storm laid out completely unconscious, and then Kensingten Calhoun-Astor finally coming to and she’s not happy in the least that another one got away. Maxwell is shown mockingly dusting himself off before sauntering up the ramp clearly happy with tonight’s outcome.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for TrueCar featuring El Landerson and El Jr. They are shopping for El Jr’s first car and go to TrueCar to find out what other people have paid for the same vehicle. However, money is no object for El Landerson so he pays whatever it costs anyway :wow:)
(Voltage fades backstage, and the EAW Champion Rex McAllister is seen walking the halls. He doesn’t look too happy, thinking about what’s happened with SOSA Henderson and the fact that he’s being forced to team up with him this week against Sienna Jade and Adam Lucas. SOSA Henderson took the cheapest way possible to get a Championship match at Territorial Invasion, which is something Rex hasn’t forgotten about. As Rex continues walking with the EAW Championship around his waist, he hears a familiar voice, one which immediately seems to bother Rex once he realizes who it’s coming from.)
???: Well well well, look who we have here.
(SOSA Henderson himself soon walks into the camera’s view, and he has an obnoxious smirk on his face as he walks up to Rex McAllister. Rex clearly doesn’t want to listen to anything SOSA has to say, but stays as he knows the two will have to team up later on tonight.)
SOSA Henderson: So, you promise not to hold me back and stop me from beating yet another Champion on Voltage? I said I was the hottest star on the roster and I think I’ve done more than enough to prove that. I’ve already beaten one of Voltage’s Champions a few weeks ago when the two of us faced each other. It’d be a shame if I had to drop Sienna Jade, Adam Lucas, and you all in one night.
(Rex just sighs, clearly not interested in SOSA’s antics. He doesn’t really want to risk trying to argue with him, knowing he’ll later on tonight have to try and work with him against Sienna Jade and Adam Lucas.)
Rex McAllister: Look, SOSA. Why don’t we just put all this stuff between us aside for one night and get this win? We can settle everything when the time comes at Territorial Invasion.
SOSA Henderson: Yeah, yeah you’re right. I’ll put all that shit aside for tonight, since all this will be settled very soon. My star is gonna shine brighter than ever when I hold the EAW Championship around my waist, so don’t worry Rex. I’ll fall in line for tonight, if that’s what you want. As long as we get the job done and you don’t add another loss on my record, I’m cool.
Rex McAllister: Are you sure about that? I don’t know how much I can trust you, or any of the things you just said. I don’t think you stand a chance at Territorial Invasion, and after what you did when we faced each other a few weeks back I don’t know if I can believe any of this. You’re cheap. You lied back then when we faced each other, I don’t think I believe you this time around. You should be worried about trying not to screw us over, then failing at Territorial Invasion where you can’t use those same tricks against me again.
SOSA Henderson: Bruh, you’re still on that? See, shit like this is why everyone thinks you’re so boring. You continue going on and on and on about the most irrelevant shit. Like, so what if I didn’t straight up pin you? I earned an EAW Championship match by doing things my way, and you complaining about it over and over won’t do anything about it. There’s a reason Voltage’s ratings are tanking, you’re such a boring, vanilla, generic excuse of a Champion. This place needs excitement Rex and I am that excitement, I’m the star this company needs. That’s why I’mma beat your ass at Territorial Invasion just like I did in our last match. I’m gonna be the reason ratings skyrocket again. I’m gonna give Voltage a Champion that actually knows a thing or two about entertainment, ‘cause clearly you’re a stranger to the word.
Rex McAllister: Please SOSA, if you’re going to insult me at least come up with something original. If you knew as much about entertainment as you let on, you shouldn’t have to resort to saying the same thing about me every single week but here we are. The “Rex McAllister is boring” insults are so overdone, I don’t think I can even count how many times I’ve heard them at this point. That’s what everyone uses. It’s the go-to line against me nowadays, and if there’s anything that’s getting boring, it’s that.
(SOSA just shrugs, not really caring or paying much attention to what Rex is saying.)
Rex McAllister: I don’t care whether you think I’m boring or the most entertaining guy on the planet. Why should that matter to me? I’m here for much more than just fame and entertainment. In the end, whether you like it or not I’m the EAW Champion because I’m good enough to be the Champion. I’ve always let my actions do the talking for me, which is why I’m the best in the world when it comes to technical wrestling.
SOSA Henderson: :usure:
Rex McAllister: You know what? Alright. I have an idea. Since you’re so desperate to prove you are a bonafide star, ‘Bulletproof’, lets make our match a little more interesting.
SOSA Henderson: :ohhh: What you got in mind?
Rex McAllister: Well if you want to try and prove me wrong and shut me down, why don’t you enter my world for a change. I want you to face me in a match where you have to push your body past its limits. I want you to face me in a sixty minute iron man match.
(SOSA Henderson eyes widen for a second after hearing the suggestion from Rex, and soon he begins taking some time to think. A sixty minute ironman match is no easy match to compete in, however it would be a great opportunity for SOSA to humiliate Rex while winning the EAW Championship at the same time. After a few moments, SOSA looks up at Rex and begins to shake his head.)
SOSA Henderson: Naaahhh…. I’ll pass. I ain’t got shit to prove when it comes to wrestling. I already know I’mma go down as one of the greatest of all time, I don’t need no fuckin’ sixty minute ironman match to prove it. If you really got your heart set on making this match more “interesting” then how’s this sound? Rex McAllister versus SOSA Henderson for the EAW Championship… In a street fight.
Rex McAllister: Wait, are you serious? Did you not see what happened to Myles last month in sadistic madness? After everything that happened in that match, a street fight is your suggestion? That’s nothing to me.
SOSA Henderson: Aight then. If a street fight is nothing to you, you shouldn’t have any issues accepting the match.
Rex McAllister: You’re right, and you know what? I accept. Street fight it is. Hope you realize just what you’ve gotten yourself into.
SOSA Henderson: Bet, lookin’ forward to beating you in a match more my style.
(SOSA Henderson walks off, still with the same grin on his face now knowing he’ll be facing Rex McAllister ar Territorial Invasion in a street fight, meanwhile Rex watches SOSA walk away, still not very impressed with him before finally shaking his head, remembering that’s who he has to team up with later on tonight. As Rex McAllister begins walking off in his own direction, Voltage begins to fade away from the backstage area.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ringside area. Bella smiles into the camera.)
(‘Ambitionz as a Ridah’ by Tupac hits, as the crowd gets up to their feet and begins to cheer loudly for the Hall of Fame Luchador. TLA springs out onto the stage and makes his way down to the ring while acknowledging the fans and their support for him.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is set for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring.. From the Poon Palace in Miami, Florida!!! Weighing in at 210lbs.. LA PANTER SEXUAL!!!! TLA!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: We are just two weeks away from Territorial Invasion where TLA will be representing Voltage in the Brand Warfare match against both Team Dynasty and Showdown.
Rich Russillo: La Pantera Sexual definitely wants to put on a good showing here tonight and fine tune some things before the big match.
(‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence hits, as Shane Gates steps out onto the stage. The crowd immediately begins to boo as Shane marches his way down the entrance ramp and towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent!! From Huntington Beach, California!!! Weighing in at 213lbs!!! SHANE!!!!! GATES!!!!!!!
Persephone: And here’s Shane Gates! Gates managed to get himself inserted into the National Elite Championship match against Adam Lucas and Sienna Jade.
James Peters: And there are a lot of people saying that Gates doesn’t deserve the opportunity. Gates has stated that this match tonight against TLA will be a match that proves that he can fight against the best in this company and that he deserves to fight for that National Elite Championship. We’ll see how he does here tonight!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: There’s the bell and this match is underway! TLA and Shane Gates lock up in the center of the ring! TLA is quick to use his legs as he kicks Shane Gates right in the side of the calf, then follows up with a knee strike to the abdomen! Shane is hunched over in pain, but TLA immediately forces his attack with a very Mexican upper cut that is followed by a left jab that snaps his knuckles against Gates’ face!!
Rich Russillo: Impressive striking combinations by TLA! Gates is covering his face in pain as he tries to back away from the luchador! But TLA steps up and lands a strong right hand to stomach of Gates! Gates bends back down but is popped right back up by a powerful knee shot to the face by TLA!!
James Peters: Gates is standing groggily! TLA turns around and runs to the ropes! The Mexican Warrior bounces back towards Gates-
Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S SHANE GATES WHO LIFTS HIS BOOT UP!!! BIG BOOT!!!
Persephone: No!! TLA did a forward roll to get under the boot and dodges it completely!!! TLA is behind Shane Gates as he pops up to his feet and delivers a dropkick that lands directly at the center of Gates’ back!! AND IT SENDS SHANE GATES UP AGAINST THE RING ROPES!!! HIS HEAD AND ARMS ALL HANG OVER THAT SECOND ROPE!!
James Peters: We know what this means!! TLA runs to the far ropes! He bounces back towards Shane Gates!!! THE 305!!!!!!! TIGER FEINT KI-
Rich Russillo: NO!!! Shane Gates realized what was going on and he instantly rolled out of the ring as TLA spins all the way through the ropes and lands back in the ring without making any contact!! TLA must be upset that he missed that one!
Persephone: You want to know who never misses? Rexy. Rexy never misses.
James Peters: TLA sees Shane Gates on the outside! He turns around and runs to the far ropes! TLA rebounds and is headed in Gates’ direction!! THIS LUCHADOR IS READY TO FLY!!! SUICIDE DIVE!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! Shane Gates side steps as TLA stumbles on his landing! TLA turns his head.. CLOTHESLINE BY SHANE GATES!!! That shot sends TLA right down to the thinly padded floor! TLA clutches at the back of his head in pain as Gates reaches down and grabs him by the head! Gates attempts to bring TLA up to his feet, but by the time TLA is up to his knees he begins to fire away with rights and lefts!! Gates takes quite a few shots by this Mexican Brawler, but instantly responds with a knee driven to the head of TLA!
Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four.. Five..
Persephone: Gates still has a tight grip on TLA as he forces him up to his feet! Gates then grabs TLA by the wrist and irish whips him hard as TLA crashes back first against the barricade and plexiglass that surrounds the ring!!! Shane charges at him.. AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT THAT DRIVES INTO THE FACE OF TLA!!!! TLA falls into a seated position against the barricade as Shane stands above him and begins to throw strong right hand punches down onto TLA!!!
Referee: Six.. Seven.. Eight..
James Peters: Shane Gates continues to fire away with these punches on TLA! He then runs back towards the ring, slides in, then slides back out to restart the count!! Shane has a smile on his face because he knows he is in control of this match right now against one of the more decorated Elitists in EAW!
Persephone: Couldn’t do it to Sexy Rexy though. No way.
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates now walks back over to TLA who is just now getting back up to a standing position against the barricade. Gates takes a few steps back as he stands about 8 and a half feet away from TLA! He charges in!!! RUNNING BIG BOOT BY SHANE GATES ONTO TLA!!!!!
James Peters: NO!!! TLA dodges the big boot and gets out of the way as Gates has his boot smack hard against the plexiglass!!! TLA is behind Gates who is just now turning around.. VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT BY TL-
Rich Russillo: NO!!! SHANE GATES DUCKS UNDER THE ARM AND LIFTS TLA UP!!!! Shane runs.. AND DRIVES TLA’S BACK INTO THE STEEL STEPS WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!!
Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four…
Persephone: TLA yelps out in pain after having his back drilled into that steel! Meanwhile, Shane Gates drops down to his knee, then stands back up as he looks down at the Hall of Famer!!
James Peters: Shane Gates now steps over to TLA who is still laying down on top of those steel steps.. AND GATES BEGINS FIRING AWAY WITH PUNCHES DOWN ONTO THE HEAD OF TLA!!!! TLA tries to block some punches with his forearms, but Gates manages to get some hard punches to break through!
Referee: Five.. Six..
Rich Russillo: Gates is keeping the pressure on TLA and not slowing down his offence! He continues with these punches, then grabs TLA by the head and neck, pulls him off of those steel steps, then slides the luchador back into the ring! Shane Gates slides in right afterwards and goes for the pin!!
Persephone: And there’s TLA with the kickout!!
James Peters: Shane Gates quickly back up to his feet as he begins to stomp down onto the body of TLA!! TLA slowly turns his body and works his way up onto his hands and knees with Shane still pelting him with quick stomps!! TLA now up to one knee!!! BUT GATES KICKS HIM IN THE HEAD!!! AGAIN!!!! AND AGAIN!!!! TLA drops down to his forearms after that last shot to the head!! Gates is really gaining momentum right here as his confidence begins to build even more!! Gates turns around and runs to the far ropes!! He bounces back as TLA gets back up to one knee!!! AND SHANE GATES GOES FOR THE SHINING WIZARD!!!! BULLET TO HEAD!!!! NO!!! TLA ducks his head underneath the kick as Shane misses entirely and drops face first down onto the canvas!!!
Rich Russillo: TLA is clutching at his head as he is obviously feeling the effects of those kicks by Shane earlier!! Gates is slowly working up to his hands and knees then back up to his feet! TLA is still down on his knees, but he looks up and pops up to his feet from behind Shane Gates!!! AND TLA CONNECTS WITH THE ZIG ZAG THAT SMACKS THE BACK OF SHANE GATES’ HEAD UP AGAINST THE CANVAS OF THE RING!!!! This crowd is going wild as the momentum begins to shift in TLA’s direction!!! TLA quickly makes his way over to the corner and climbs up to the top turnbuckle! He positions himself as Gates is laying on his back in the center of the ring!!! 420!!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY TLA CONNECTS ONTO SHANE GATES IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!! TLA hooks the legs!!
Persephone: But Shane Gates gets his shoulder up!!
James Peters: Gates is showing tremendous resilience after taking one of TLA’s best moves at full force! TLA back up to his feet as he grabs Shane and brings him up to his feet as well. Gates is in a lot of pain as he isn’t fighting back! TLA with a knee to the stomach that forces Gates into a bent over position!! TLA turns around and runs to the ring ropes! TLA bounces back.. MEXICAN DESTROYER!!!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! SHANE GATES COUNTERS WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!!! TLA hits the canvas hard and clutches at his back in pain!! Gates slowly gets back up to his feet as TLA is seen grabbing the side ropes and uses them to assist him up to his feet!! TLA turns around.. SUPERKICK BY SHANE GATES!!!! THAT’S THE KILL SHOT AND IT SENDS TLA RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS OF THE RING!!! Gates hooks the legs!!
James Peters: But once again TLA manages to kick out!!!
Rich Russillo: We can see the frustration on Shane’s face right now. He connected perfectly with that superkick and still wasn’t able to get it done!!
James Peters: I’m impressed so far though. He is really putting up a fight and making this a stellar challenge for TLA!
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates is on top of TLA now, and now he’s just punching away at him! TLA managed to push Gates off of him before getting back to his feet, but Gates is immediately back on the offense! Gates with a knee to TLA’s midsection, but he doesn’t stop at just one! Gates with another knee! And another! TLA is backed up into the corner, and now Gates sends him into the other one before charging in!
Persephone: Nope, Shane is way too slow so TLA managed to move out of the way and avoid what would’ve been a running boot to the face. TLA now kicking out Gates’ leg from under him, and now TLA runs the ropes before hitting Shane with a meteora. TLA now is going for the cover and hopefully that’s the end of this match!
Rich Russillo: GATES KICKS OUT! TLA now is slowly making his way up to the top rope- BUT WAIT, LOOK! GATES RUSHES BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE PUSHES TLA’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM! Shane now is climbing up to join TLA at the top rope, but what’s he going for? Whatever it is, things aren’t looking good for La Pantera Sexual! Shane now is on the top rope, and I think he’s trying to go for a back superplex, but TLA is elbowing Gates!
James Peters: Shane is trying his best to take the elbows from TLA, but he looks like he’s struggling right now! Shane begins to lift TLA up, BUT TLA MANAGES TO LAND A WELL PLACED ELBOW ON THE TOP OF SHANE’S HEAD! Shane begins falling down, which allows TLA to turn around while up top, BUT NOW SHANE CHARGES BACK TOWARDS HIM AND UP THE TOP ROPE- ONLY THIS TIME TLA IS ABLE TO HIT SHANE WITH A HUGE FOREARM, BEFORE FINALLY PUSHING HIM OFF OF THE TOP ROPE! TLA now getting in position, AND HERE HE GOES! TLA WITH A DIVING-
Rich Russillo: SHANE WITH A HUGE BOOT TO TLA!! SHANE JUST BOOTED TLA OUT OF THE AIR, AND BOTH MEN DROP TO THE MAT! That was insane! That might be it, TLA might be done for now! Shane is rolling himself on top of TLA for the cover, and I think that’s it!
Rich Russillo: WHAT!? TLA GOT THE SHOULDER UP!?
James Peters: Shane is asking the referee and yes, TLA kicked out in time! That was about as close as he could’ve gotten just then! I feel bad for Shane, that might’ve been his best shot!
Persephone: Shane Gates gets back up to his feet. He grabs TLA and brings him up to his feet as well!! And Shane Gates sends him back down with a clothesline!!! TLA hits the canvas hard, but uses the momentum to pop back up to his feet quickly!!! BUT HE’S SENT BACK DOWN BY ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE BY. SHANE GATES!!! TLA once again gets back up to his feet.. AND SHANE GATES GOES FOR A THIRD CLOTHESLINE!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!!! TLA ducks underneath the arm as Shane runs right past him!! TLA turns around.. BUT IT’S SHANE GATES WHO GOES FOR A SPINNING HEEL KICK!!!!
James Peters: BUT TLA CATCHES THE FOOT WITH HIS BARE HANDS!!! TLA now tosses Shane’s leg with tremendous force as it causes Gates to spin all the way around!!! TLA runs in front of him.. AND CONNECTS WITH THE CARTEL KICK!!! The Pele kick connects as Shane Gates turns and falls over to the side ropes!! Gates has his head and arms hanging over those middle ropes!! He’s in position for TLA to hit the… THE 420!!! TLA HITS THE ROPES, BOUNCES BACK, AND LANDS THE TIGER FEINT KICK RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE OF SHANE GATES!! Gates lands flat on his back in the center of the ring!
Rich Russillo: This socially distanced crowd is going as wild as a socially distanced crowd can go for TLA!! The Luchador makes his way over to the corner and climbs up to the top rope where he looks down at Shane who hasn’t moved from his position on the canvas!!! TLA leaps.. AND CONNECTS WITH THE BURNOUT!! CORKSCREW 360 SENTON CONNECTS AND TLA COVERS FOR THE PIN!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Ambitionz as a Ridah’ by Tupac hits, as the crowd cheers loudly. TLA stands up and gets his hand raised by the referee as begins to celebrate his victory in the center of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Here’s your winner!!!!! LA PANTERA SEXUAL!!!!!! TLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: What a great bout between these two Voltage Elitists. Gates put up a great effort against the Hall of Famer, but started to fall behind the second TLA started to get in a rhythm at the end.
James Peters: That was definitely a great challenge for Gates two weeks before his National Elite Championship match and a great showing for TLA as he gets closer to his Brand Warfare match at Territorial Invasion.
Persephone: Both men amounted to almost half of what Rex is capable of and that is pretty impressive if you ask me. Voltage is bringing some great talents into Territorial Invasion this year!!
(Gates is seen in the center of the ring grabbing at his abdomen in pain. TLA is seen down at ringside and headed up the ramp. The Luchador waves out to the fans as the screen fades to a commercial break.)
(A commercial break airs for Fidelity, which is tax smart investment strategies and wealth management. The Woogieman approves this message!)
(Voltage fades back into the ringside area after the break.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome… Donovan Duke!
(“The Phoenix” by Fall Out Boy begins to blast across the PA system and the socially distanced crowd gives Donovan a nice ovation.)
James Peters: I know we haven’t really spoken a lot about what happened last week, guys, but what Barlow and Gaines did to Conor Ryan was absolutely heinous. It was sickening. And we have seen a lot of sick shit on this show.
Rich Russillo: No doubt. I haven’t been able to get that sledgehammer attack out of my head. Obviously, Conor was taken to a local medical facility where he remains in a coma. I’m shocked he’s not on life support to be honest.
Persephone: Ehhh, if he was, I would just pull the plug. He’s always seemed like a fucking weirdo to me, and I’ve been watching Parental Advisory bust him in the temple with the sledgehammer on loop all week. It’s fucking hilarious.
James Peters and Rich Russillo: :skip:
(Donovan has gotten in the ring and has been given the microphone. Despite the fact he was victorious earlier in the evening over Puma X, Donovan has a troubled expression on his face. Last week definitely caught him off guard and left him with more questions than answers, and as his music fades out, he flashes the camera a thoughtful look.)
Donovan Duke: To say I’m haunted by the actions of Gaines and Barlow would be an understatement. I had to take some time earlier in the week to deal with the range of emotions I have felt since last Sunday. I have been in touch with Conor’s family back in the UK and obviously the news isn’t good. He will never wrestle again, and that sucks, but the show must go on. I have been thinking of what to do about Territorial Invasion, and at this late stage in the game, I know that it will be almost impossible to find a tag team partner. Everyone has a match, and they are preparing accordingly. It wouldn’t really make any sense for me to go into a number one contender’s match for the Unified Tag Team Championships by myself. However, I want my chance to beat the tar out of Barlow and Gaines.
(Donovan pauses, and he can’t help the smirk that crosses his face as the crowd urges him on. They also want to see him get some revenge against Parental Advisory for what they did to Conor Ryan.)
Donovan Duke: I have no qualms about stepping into the ring by myself against the both of them, and if that bitch Hannah wants to involve herself as well, then so be it. I’m starting to learn that perhaps Voltage is no place for a Southern gentleman, so I won’t hesitate to take her down along with her buddies. Barlow and Gaines are trouble and someone needs to put them in their place. It may as well be me. I got Conor and myself into this, and it looks like it will be up to me to finish it.
(“Player Haters’ Ball” by Palisades begins to play and Donovan immediately finds himself tensing up. Led by Hannah Marin, Jesse Barlow and Korey Gaines walk onto the stage. Barlow and Gaines have microphones but they do not immediately make their way to the ramp. In fact, they turn their attention towards the videotron.)
(Footage from last week’s attack begins to play.)
[ SCREENBAR – 9/6/2020 VOLTAGE ]
James Peters: KOREY GAINES JUST HIT CONOR IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A SLEDGEHAMMER! DONOVAN GOES TO TRY AND FIGHT BACK, BUT JESSE IMMEDIATELY SLIDES IN WITH ONE OF HIS OWN AND HITS DONOVAN IN THE MIDSECTION WITH IT, FORCING HIM TO HIS KNEES! JESSE GOES TO STRIKE AGAIN, BUT DONOVAN MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING BEFORE HE COULD GET HIT AGAIN!
(Donovan Duke crawls to the bottom of the ramp, clearly frustrated and unable to even think about the impromptu match win he just got as Korey and Jesse begin to attack Conor. He turns around, and Jesse and Korey both have grins on their faces as Korey picks Conor up. He’s now hurt after that shot with the sledgehammer, and can’t do much now as he knows he is outnumbered, forcing him to just back up the ramp and watch.)
James Peters: Oh God. Korey is just holding Conor in a full nelson, meanwhile Jesse is preparing the sledgehammer as if it was a baseball bat! Jesse please don’t do it! Please don’t- NO!
Rich Russillo: JESSE HITS CONOR RIGHT IN THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER! CONOR IMMEDIATELY JUST DROPPED TO THE MAT AND BLOOD IS ALREADY RUSHING DOWN HIS HEAD, BUT JESSE AND KOREY AREN’T STOPPING THERE! KOREY JUST PICKED HIS SLEDGEHAMMER BACK UP, AND BOTH MEN ARE HITTING CONOR OVER AND OVER WITH THAT SLEDGEHAMMER, AND DONOVAN CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT NOW!
James Peters: Jesse and Korey are sharing some words with Donovan that I can’t really hear from here, but it’s pretty obvious that Conor is out of it! In a matter of moments he’s formed a huge pool of blood, someone needs to come out here and check on him quickly! Jesse, Korey, and Hannah all have just evil looks on their faces, is Conor gonna okay!?
Persephone: Look at him. Would YOU be okay if that happened to you? Obviously he’s hurt, very hurt. I’d be surprised if he’s even-
James Peters: KOREY JUST HIT CONOR IN THE HEAD WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER FOR A SECOND TIME!
Rich Russillo: Oh my God. Poor Conor, and poor Donovan. There’s no way Conor is making it to Territorial Invasion!
(The scene from last week fades out and the camera cuts to Parental Advisory. They are laughing hysterically, as if Conor Ryan dying on national television is the funniest thing they have ever seen in their lives, and finally they make their way to the ring. Barlow, Gaines, and Hannah all climb up on opposite sides of the ring, surrounding Donovan, who has his fists up, ready for a fight.)
Jesse Barlow: Dude, this is fucking sad. I can’t believe you want to take us on in a handicap match after what happened last week :mjlol: Are you fucking stupid, bro? Are you really that much of an absolute idiot? You never had a chance to beat us as a member of a tag team. How in the hell do you expect to beat the both of us by yourself?
(Gaines is the first member of Parental Advisory to get into the ring. Donovan shifts his stance, making sure to keep his other eye on Jesse.)
Korey Gaines: Look, Donovan, save yourself the embarrassment and just bow out. Let Parental Advisory go to Territorial Invasion, watch from a skybox, and scout The Grand Athletes and The Realm. There’s no reason for us to further humiliate you. You have suffered enough.
Donovan Duke: Here’s the thing about me, fellas, I’m not going to back down from a fight, and I’m definitely not going to let you two get away with your actions. You’ve both already anointed yourselves as the future greatest tag team, without even really doing anything so far. You guys were beaten on Dynasty, which really doesn’t surprise anyone, and I think you both know that you would have been beaten at Territorial Invasion.
(Jesse gets into the ring, which prompts Donovan to back up a few steps.)
Jesse Barlow: Yeah fuck Dynasty. Who cares what happened on Friday? Right now, it’s Sunday, and Parental Advisory still has a chance to go for the Unified Tag Team Championships. In fact, if you want a fight so bad, we don’t gotta wait until Territorial Invasion. We can throw hands right now, ya jamoke. You think you’re so big and bad, ready to right the wrong you feel was done to that weirdo. Ya know he was sliding into Hannah’s DMs, showing her pictures he ain’t got no business sending.
Donovan Duke: If that’s the case, then it sounds like he would fit in with Korey just fine.
Persephone: YES! FINALLY! GAINES JUST BLASTED DONOVAN IN THE HEAD WITH THE MICROPHONE AND BOTH MEN ARE JUMPING DONOVAN DUKE RIGHT NOW! I THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO TALK FOREVER! :noah:
Rich Russillo: BARLOW AND GAINES ARE TAKING TURNS BEATING DOWN DONOVAN! THIS IS A STRAIGHT UP MUGGING!
James Peters: JESSE DRAGS DONOVAN UP AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO THE POWERBOMB POSITION! KOREY IS GOING UP TOP! JESSE LETS DONOVAN HANG AND KOREY DIVES OFF THE TOP ROPE! SHOOTING STAR LEG DROP PLANTS DONOVAN INTO THE MAT! COME ON NOW! THEY ARE KICKING AND STOMPING DONOVAN! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Persephone: OH MY GAWD! LOOK GUYS! HANNAH JUST PULLED A SLEDGEHAMMER OUT AND SLID IT INTO THE RING! YES!! REPEAT OF LAST WEEK!!!
James Peters: NO! GET OUT OF THERE DONOVAN!
Rich Russillo: KOREY PULLS DONOVAN UP BY THE HAIR! JESSE HAS THE SLEDGEHAMMER! JESSE RAISES IT ABOVE HIS HEAD! I CAN’T WATCH! I REALLY CAN’T FUCKING WATCH THIS HAPPEN AGAIN!
Persephone: I CAN! :blessed: DO IT JESSE! END HIS LIFE!
(The lights inside the Performance Center go out.)
Persephone: WHAT?! WHY IS THIS HAPPENING FOR THE 349,595,953,459TH TIME?!?!?!
(Fire shoots from the turnbuckles startling everyone in the building. The lights flicker back on and there’s someone standing in the smoke.)
James Peters: Oh my god!
Rich Russillo: :damn: AZRAEL! THAT IS AZRAEL! WHY THE FUCK IS HE OUT HERE?!
James Peters: BARLOW AND GAINES IMMEDIATELY BAIL! THEY WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS DISTURBED INDIVIDUAL AND I DON’T BLAME THEM!!!!
Persephone: :noah: Why did that freak have to come and ruin all the fun???
(Parental Advisory immediately retreat up the ramp, nearly tripping over Hannah in the process. All three of them look absolutely terrified of Azrael’s appearance. Whether it is genuine fear or just shock at him showing up, they want nothing to do with Voltage’s newest monster.)
(Inside the ring, Donovan is pulling himself up using the ropes. He is favoring his ribs due to the beating he took, but he also seems pretty apprehensive over the presence of Azrael. In fact, he isn’t even sure what to make of him. Azrael turns his attention to Donovan, who just stares at him, but all Azrael does is nod.)
Rich Russillo: I mean.. I’m confused.
James Peters: Same here, Rich. I have no idea what prompted Azrael to come down to the ring and aid Donovan Duke. I don’t even think Donovan knows what to make of it.
Persephone: Well I’m pissed! I wanted to see Donovan get his brains splattered all over the ring.
Rich Russillo: :wow: Of course you did.
James Peters: I am being told we have to take a break. Hopefully we will have more on this developing situation as we return.
(The camera takes another shot of Parental Advisory on stage, who still look shocked, and then fades to commercial.)
(Commercial break for Kleenex featuring Carolina Panthers fans who have to make due with Cam and Kuechly, and just watched them blow a fourth down because they didn’t give the ball to McCaffrey :skip:)
(Voltage returns from commercial break, to show Bella Braxton in the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone, awaiting the competitors to announce.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson hits the speakers to a mixed reaction from the crowd, as the lights in the venue dim to near darkness. Smoke rises on the stage like mist in the night, as Kasey Kaos walks onto the stage, with both reactions getting louder.)
James Peters: Last week she defeated Azrael using a fireball, and this week her goal is to do the same with Lisa Wren. Who knows if she’ll bring back the fire. She tried earlier tonight against Ms. Extreme but it didn’t work out. Regardless of that, I don’t doubt her ability. However, I’m not just going to rule out her opponent either.
Rich Russillo: I never COMPLETELY rule out someone, but there’s definitely a favorite to win every match.
James Peters: You don’t say?
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, billed from the Lake of Fire… weighing in at 140 pounds… THE HELLSPAWN… KAAAAAASEEEEEEEEEEEEEY KAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!
(As her name is announced, she climbs onto the apron, before entering the ring. She stares down the hardcam, as her theme is abruptly replaced with ‘Rage’ (instrumental) by Rico Nasty. Lisa Wren walks onto the stage, with the same reaction as Kasey Kaos, except the sides are turned.)
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren looks confident, but there’s a difference between looking and feeling it. She could deep down be absolutely terrified, yet on the outside display no fear to get into her opponents mind. Not necessarily saying fear is a bad thing, but…
James Peters: I doubt she has any fear, I just believe she doesn’t want to regret this outcome. She wants this victory to prove why she’s here, why she’s on Voltage, why she’s in EAW entirely. She didn’t come to be second best, after all.
Bella Braxton: And introducing her opponent, hailing from British Columbia, Canada… Weighing in also at 140 pounds… LISAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!
(As her name is announced, Lisa steps onto the apron and extends her arms to her side, posing for a good camera angle. She would then enter the ring, and into her corner, as her theme fades out.)
Rich Rusillo: Regardless of whether she’s scared or not, it won’t matter any more. Because the bout is about to start… get it? It rhym-
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And the match is underway! Lisa Wren and Kasey Kaos, one on one! Lisa instantly bolts forward, as does Kasey, before Lisa attempts a big boot! Kasey manages to sidestep the move, before attempting a spin kick! No! Lisa Wren manages to duck, but she’s caught with a roundhouse kick to the chest!
Rich Russillo: Wait no! She catches her leg! Lisa then punches her opponent directly in the heart! Kasey Kaos… doesn’t appear to be affected? She pulls her leg down, before kicking Lisa again!
James Peters: Wait! Lisa was pulling her strings! She quickly ducks the kick, and rolls her up with a schoolboy!
James Peters: But she escapes, lifting her shoulders off the mat for the count of one! Kasey gets to her hands and knees but Lisa decides against it! She hits a leaping double foot stomp on her back, almost snapping her in half! But she doesn’t slow down there, as she runs the ropes, before rebounding with a soccer kick to the chest! Kasey is sent rolling onto the apron due to the whiplash!
Rich Russillo: And she continues her focus on hurting Kasey, following her out onto the apron, and grabbing onto her hair! But Kasey was playing possum, and sends Lisa head first into the pos- No! She grabs onto the post with her arm-
James Peters: BUT KASEY SWEEPS THE LEGS, SENDING LISA WREN INTO THE APRON! THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING!
Persephone: If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that I’d have enough money to hire a hitman on you.
James Peters: Hey, what the fuck?
Rich Russillo: Kasey led Lisa in, before striking in another brutal way! Much like when she faced Azrael, Kasey Kaos is using the ring to her advantage! Like how she used the turnbuckles, she’s now using the post and apron to deal as much damage as possible.
James Peters: She slides off the apron, and grabs Lisa by her head, before throwing her back into the ring, rolling back in afterwards. Kasey grabs Lisa’s jaw, before slamming her head into the ring mat repeatedly! :krabs:
Rich Russillo: For those new to wrestling, underneath that canvas is literal wood! There is a thin sheet of padding above it, so practically nothing is softening the collision! That is flesh and bone meeting wood, ladies and gentlemen. Only in wrestling! …and maybe liveleak.
Persephone: You’ll be on that site if you don’t stop saying shit I’ve heard thousands of times before.
Rich Russillo: Sorry hun.
James Peters: Kasey Kaos is now transitioning these mat slams into headbutts! Every time she pulls Lisa up, she headbutts her back down, in a looping motion! In other words, it doesn’t seem to be ending until Kasey decides!
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren is unconscious right now, it appears, and that’s when Kasey stops this brutal assault on her. She quickly lies over her opponent, looking for a cover!
Rich Russillo: No! Somehow Lisa Wren manages to pop the shoulder up in the nick of time! There’s not gonna be any early victories in this contest. Kasey Kaos quickly rises to her feet and walks back towards the corner, preparing for a big move perhaps?
James Peters: I’m not all too sure what she has planned, but it will not spell good news for Lisa Wren. She too gets to her feet, as Kasey Kaos sprints towards Lisa and attempts a wheelbarrow move?
Rich Russillo: BUT LISA WREN SUDDENLY TRANSITIONS INTO A WHEELBARROW FULL NELSON RELEASE SUPLEX! KASEY KAOS ARCHES HER BACK IN PAIN, AS LISA SCURRIES TO THE MIDDLE ROPES! KASEY BEGINS TO STAND UP, AS LISA LEAPS… OVERHEAD SOMERSAULT BACKBREAKER!
James Peters: KASEY KAOS HAS JUST BEEN TORN INSIDE OUT! SHE BOUNCES OFF THE KNEES, AND LANDS HARD IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! LISA COVERS!
James Peters: BUT A KICK OUT FOLLOWS UP! KASEY KAOS USING RESILIENCE LIKE THIS WAS EAW 2K21! (pre-order now) AND THE MATCH CONTINUES!
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren mounts Kasey Kaos, and gets in some poundings of her own! She uses her palms to destroy her opponents’ head, hitting some nasty mounted palm strikes, mixed in with some forearms for a pretty smooth combination! But Kasey Kaos has had enough of taking a beating, and pulls her feet inward, before pushing out, sending Lisa into the corner! Kasey rolls to a standing position, then runs toward Lisa-
James Peters: RUNNING FACEBUSTER OUT OF NOWHERE! KASEY KAOS IS SENT FLATTENED ON HER FACE, AFTER LISA WREN RAN FORWARD, TOOK A HOLD OF HER HAIR, LEAPED AND DROVE HER INTO THE MAT WITH FORCE!
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren sure is bringing her A game tonight! Right off the bat she brought heat, and that heat is quickly turning into a full on fire!
Persephone: If you ever mention fire without an actual fire again I’-
James Peters: Yeah we get the point, you like violence. Moving on…
Persephone: Oh okay.
James Peters: Lisa Wren gets back to her feet, and begins to beat her chest to the sound of the crowd, gathering up some momentum for a possible finisher perhaps??
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren begins to lift her opponent up b- OH MY GOD! SHE’S CLAWING THE NOSE! SHE HAS TWO FINGERS HOOKING THE NOSE, AND KASEY IS CLAWING THAT NOSE BACK! WOULD THIS APPLY AS A SUBMISSION HOLD?
James Peters: IT DOESN’T MATTER, BECAUSE LOOK AT LISA WREN! SHE HAS A HOLD OF KASEY’S HAIR… HAIR-PULL MAT SLAM! ONE OF HER SIGNATURE MANEUVERS! AFTER KASEY FALLS SHE RETREATS INTO THE CORNER AND CHECKS IF HER NOSE IS BLEEDING OR NOT! BUT THIS GIVES KASEY TIME TO RECOVER!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD IS LISA POPPING HER NOSE BACK INTO PLACE? I’VE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE, BUT IT LOOKS GRUESOME! BUT THAT DOESN’T MATTER, AS ALL OF A SUDDEN KASEY KAOS CLOBBERS HER WITH A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE TO THAT SAME POSITION! LISA WREN FALLS TO HER KNEES NEXT TO THE TURNBUCKLES AND… OH MY GOD! KASEY GRABS HER WRIST… WRIST CLUTCH TURNBUCKLE STOMP! MUCH LIKE SHE DID TO AZRAEL, THIS TIME IT COULD BE THE FINISH! KASEY HOOKS THE LEG!
James Peters: THR- NO! KICK OUT! DID I SEE THAT CORRECTLY? SURELY THAT WAS ON INSTINCT!
Persephone: Or she just kicked out, damn.
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS IS TRYING IT AGAIN! SHE STANDS BACK UP AND PLACES LISA’S HEAD IN BETWEEN HER BOOT AND THE TURNBUCKLE! SHE STOMPS ON HER HE-
James Peters: LISA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, AND KASEY KICKS THE RING POST BY COMPLETE ACCIDENT! LISA THEN HITS A CHOP BLOCK TO HER OTHER LEG, DROPPING HER TO THE GROUND INSTANTLY! SHE QUICKLY TRANSITIONS INTO A COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: KASEY GETS OUT OF THE PINFALL, FORCING THE MATCH TO CONTINUE RIGHT NOW! BUT LISA IS DETERMINED TO END IT, AS SHE SEES BLOOD IN THE WATER! A CLEAR WEAK SPOT RIGHT NOW IS KASEY’S LEFT LEG! LISA WREN STANDS UP, AND DRAGS KASEY TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! SHE RAPIDLY STOMPS ON THE KNEE, TRYING TO DEAL MORE DAMAGE!
James Peters: A SMART TACTIC, ESPECIALLY THIS LATE INTO THE MATCH, I WONDER IF SHE’LL CAPITALIZE ON THIS FURTHER, IN HOPES TO PICK UP THE VICTORY?
Rich Russillo: LISA THEN PLACES HER LEG ON THE INSIDE OF KASEY’S AND TWIRLS AROUND! OH NO… SHE’S LOCKING IN A FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK! BUT KASEY OUTSMARTS HER, AND ROLLS ONTO HER STOMACH AS SOON AS THE HOLD IS APPLIED! THE FORCE INSTANTLY IS SHIFTED ONTO LISA’S LEGS, AND SHE LETS GO ALMOST FASTER THAN IT WAS APPLIED!
James Peters: BUT LISA ISN’T DONE! SHE DOESN’T ESCAPE THE DAMAGE, SHE AVOIDS IT, BECAUSE NOW SHE LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND STOMPS ON THE KNEE THAT IS HER NEW TARGET! AFTER ROLLING TO HER FEET, SHE QUICKLY LOCKS IN A KNEEBAR! WHILST NOT AS DEVASTATING OF A SUBMISSION, ENOUGH DAMAGE IS DONE TO THE LEG WHERE KASEY COULD TAP!
Rich Russillo: AND SHE LOOKS TO BE ON THE VERGE OF DOING SO! THE SUBMISSION IS LOCKED IN TIGHT, AND KASEY HAS NOWHERE TO GO!
(Half of the crowd boo, whilst the other half chant “TAP! TAP! TAP!”)
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS USES HER OTHER LEG TO HER ADVANTAGE! SHE MAY DO MORE DAMAGE TO HER OWN, BUT TO ESCAPE I’M SURE SHE’D DO ANYTHING! KASEY BEGINS TO KICK AT THE KNEES OF LISA, ONE OF THE MOST SENSITIVE PARTS OF THE BODY! AND IT WORKS! THE HOLD IS LET GO OF, AND KASEY IS ABLE TO CRAWL AWAY, TO RECOVER!
James Peters: LISA WREN TOO NEEDS TO RECOVER, BUT SHE ISN’T TAKING THE OPPORTUNITY! LISA WREN IS DETERMINED TO FINISH THIS MATCH NOW, BUT SHE BETTER NOT LET THIS GET AHEAD OF HER! SHE’S BEING TOO EAGER TO GET TO THE FINISH, DESPERATELY CRAWLING TOWARDS ANY OPPORTUNITY GIVEN!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN APPROACHES KASEY KAO- CHERRY BOMB! THE SHINING WIZARD OUT OF NOWHERE TAKES LISA WREN TO THE GROUND, I DIDN’T EXPECT THAT, NEITHER DID THE CROWD, AND CERTAINLY NEITHER DID LISA! KASEY KAOS QUICKLY CRAWLS INTO THE COVER!
James Peters: NO!!! LISA WREN POPS THE SHOULDER UP AT THE VERY LAST SECOND TO SAVE THE MATCH FOR HERSELF MAY THAT BE A LESSON LEARNED, CURIOSITY KILLS THE CAT! COULD LISA WREN BE ON HER LAST LIFE?
Rich Russillo: UNLIKE LISA WREN, KASEY KAOS ISN’T DIVING INTO THE FINISH! SHE MOUNTS LISA WREN AND BEGINS TO CHOKE HERE, HOPING TO DAMAGE THAT THROAT, OR MAYBE GET SOME ENERGY AND AIR OUT OF HER BODY, MAYBE FOR HER FINISH? EITHER WAY, SHE’S PREPARING FOR SOMETHING HUGE!
James Peters: LISA WREN IS TRYING TO PUSH KASEY KAOS AWAY, BUT NOTHING IS GOING TO WORK RIGHT NOW! THAT GRIP IS TIGHTER THAN MOST, WHICH IS SURPRISING. KASEY KAOS ROLLS LISA ONTO HER BACK AND ATTEMPTS TO LOCK IN THE KAOS REIG-
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN SLIDES THROUGH KASEY’S LEGS! KNEEBA-
James Peters: KASEY LIES BACK INTO THE KNEEBAR AND COVERS LISA OUT OF NOWHERE!
James Peters: LISA GETS HER SHOULDERS OFF THE MAT, AND ROLLS TO HER FEET! AS DOES KASEY, THEN SHE THROWS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! LISA GETS HER LEG UP TO BLOCK, BEFORE ATTEMPTING A JAB! KASEY PUSHES THE ARM OUT OF THE WAY, BEFORE ATTEMPTING A STANDING DROPKIC-
Rich Russillo: LISA EVADES DOING A HAND FREE CARTWHEEL! …SPEAR! SPEAR AS SOON AS KASEY STANDS BACK UP! SHE ALMOST TOOK HER OUT OF HER BOOTS! LISA WREN STANDS UP AND TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK, SHE COULD BE LOOKING FOR THE FINISH RIGHT HERE! SHE ROLLS FORWARD…. SHE FLIPS… ROLLING THUND-
James Peters: KASEY CATCHES HER IN THE ‘KAOS REIGNS’ TAZMISSION CHOKE! SHE HAS IT LOCKED IN HARD, AND TO APPLY MORE PRESSURE, SHE ROLLS ONTO HER STOMACH! LISA WREN IS TRAPPED, AND HAS NOWHERE TO GO! BUT SHE KEEPS FIGHTING! SHE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE UP, SHE WON’T GIVE UP! SHE SHOWS NO SIGNS OF TAPPING OUT! BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM IS, WHAT DOES SHE DO NOW!?
Rich Russillo: LISA IS TRYING TO CLIMB TO THE ROPES, BUT WITH ALL OF THE WEIGHT ON HER BACK THAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE! BUT SHE’S TRYING! SHE’S TRYING! LISA WREN IS GETTING CLOSER, NOT MUCH, BUT CLOSER TO THE ROPES RIGHT NOW!
James Peters: SHE CONTINUES TO CRAWL THROUGH THE KAOS REIGNS BUT AT WHAT COST? SHE’S GETTING MORE GROGGY AS TIME GOES BY, AND AS KASEY WRENCHES THE HOLD TIGHTER! LISA WREN IS CLOSE TO THE ROPES! COULD SHE BREAK IT UP? SHE’S FINGERTIPS AWAY-
James Peters: …BUT SHE COLLAPSES! LISA CAN NOT CONTINUE! SHE IS TAPPING OUT! SHE IS TAPPING OUT!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson hits the speakers to a mixed reaction of cheers and boos. Kasey Kaos slowly climbs off of Lisa Wren who tried her best to break the submission, but didn’t quite make it.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… KASEY KAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!!
James Peters: Lisa Wren was SO close to getting that rope break but as soon as Kasey realized that, she tugged on that submission hold harder than ever before, cutting off the air from getting in and out of her body, and Lisa had no choice but to tap. But one thing Lisa showed tonight is how tough she is and how close she came to being able to get out of Kaos Reigns.
Rich Russillo: I tell you this all the time, do not undermine the one winning. Lisa Wren showed heart, but she didn’t come out on top. Kasey Kaos did. That’s all you need to know.
(As Kasey Kaos has her arm raised, Voltage fades into another promotional ad for Territorial Invasion.)
(A promotional ad showcasing Consuela Rose Ava, Ahren Fournier, and Charlie Marr leading their respective teams into battle is shown. Brand Warfare is set to be an explosive match come Territorial Invasion and you can see it live on free-per-view, September 26th, 2020!)
(Voltage returns from break and fades into the backstage area.)
(The set of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s “Country Cooking” looks like Grandma’s Kitchen back home down South. The beautiful “Steel Magnolia” in a Cherry patterned white skirt, red heels and a red halter top, her white hat and apron on stands in front of the counter with the stove top and oven behind her, there are pots, pans, bowls and utensils scattered throughout her kitchen, where the bar has five stools where all members of Team Voltage Brand Warfare sit, consisting of Ahren Fournier, Terry Chambers, TLA, Myles and Minerva. Kensington turns to the camera…)
Kensington: Oh Loooooord welcome to my Country Cooking Kitchen, I am your host Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and do I have a treat for you today, but first come on in here and look at this setup, just like Grannie’s ol’ kitchen back home when little Kensingten used to sit right there watching her cook those chicken n’ Dumplings, they were delicious! Well, the Southern Lady in me, wanted to share some of her culinary talent and what better way to do so then on Voltage by inviting the talent in here and I make dishes according to where they are from or favorites. Now, come focus on my face for a second, everyone wants to see it, come on you deplorable.
(The camera focuses on Kensingten as she smiles and poses.)
Kensingten: Now I could sit here and talk all day about me, but that is not why we are here, only partially. First, we start all conversations in the South with some Biscuits and Honeycomb along with Ida May’s Sweet Tea! God Bless her soul, may she rest in peace, but her Tea is FAMOUS. Now, I would love to introduce, well not exactly love, I’m not going to over-exaggerate things, but these five Elitists will represent us at Territorial Invasion and here they are!
(The camera pans to the Voltage Brand Warfare Team. They all seemed EXTREMELY thrilled to be there.)
Kensingten: So tonight, while I prepare their meals, we are going to talk about Territorial Invasion, and their big Main Event Match tonight against Team War Games. The Team Captain, Hall of Famer Ahren Fournier, Terry Chambers, TLA, Myles and Minerva, welcome all and I know you are as excited to be here as I am!
(They don’t look excited at all, Minerva rolls her eyes, TLA shakes his head, Ahren just stares at Kensingten in a very creepy way, Myles is glancing over down Minerva’s top and Terry Chambers looks restless, looking down at his phone trying to be discreet.)
Kensingten: Don’t y’all hold that excitement too long, it may upset your stomachs before you eat this fine Cooking! Now, I have taken the liberties of already marinating and preparing some of these fine delicacies, but as I get your meals ready, let me pour y’all Ida May’s Sweet Tea! Oh honey, trust me this is a food group on its own!
(Kensingten grabs the pitcher of tea and pours them into six glasses, then hands out five small dishes with a half biscuit and some honeycomb on top.)
Kensingten: Now before we start this wonderful meal, let just say, Thank You Looooord for giving me the talent to be a Jill of All Trades, and for honoring these fine warriors who will battle for Voltage in two weeks with my presence. Cheers!
(No one says anything, instead the Team looks at one another as Kensington is chugging her glass. Finally, they shrug their shoulders and sip.)
Terry: What the hell is that!? Can I get a little tea with my sugar!?
Ahren: That was very….. Interesting.
Myles: Liquid caramel.
TLA: I ain’t drinking that mierda, homes. She probably spiked it then call ICE to come try and take me back to Mexico.
(Minerva tastes it and keeps sipping; she is not bothered by it.)
Kensingten: TLA. I know we have had our differences in the past, peaches n’ cream, but I think for the sake of our country, humanity and the team chemistry, we can get along for one night, and trust me, what I am making for you will change your opinion of me. There are no ICE agents here, there are no MAGA hats. We are united as one! Oh, and sister, we have wrestled in the past but you sipping Ida May’s tea gives me hope and cheer, pump fist girl.
(Minerva glares at her for a moment then fist pumps her, as Kensingten takes out the sanitizer bottle and cleans her hands. Minerva shakes her head but has been quiet so far.)
Kensingten: As I prepare the dishes, why don’t you tell the people out there in TV Land how you feel about your team and the chances of winning it all at Territorial Invasion, Ahren? I will ask you first sugar plum since you are the Team Captain.
Ahren: What do you think, Kensi? Look at our team lead by the GOAT! Yes, yes, I may have not chosen them personally but in the last few weeks we have come together to form an extraordinary unit! Tonight, after we defeat Team War Games, it will be a preview of what we do at Territorial Invasion.
Terry: They don’t stand a chance. Each team has been positioning themselves, things didn’t go our way at Dynasty the other night, thanks to Team Showdown, but last week we showed them who dominates the brand. Excuse me…
(Terry receives a text message, obviously from Consuela. TLA chuckles.)
Kensingten: What about you, Myles? TLA? Minerva?
TLA: I will go to war with these homies and heina anytime, we know what we finna to do and no matter what happens between the last few weeks and now, we are ready for anything. Tonight, though I get to see my Team beat that puto Drake King, Malcolm Jones, and Darcy.
Myles: I’m hungry. I skipped catering today to give this the benefit of the doubt.
Minerva: What he said.
Kensingten: Well I am so glad that you said something as y’all been talking, I have been hustling my feet to get these wonderful meals together and tell the fans, and the rest of the Elitists to come hungry. Now…
(She sets up five plates, Minerva is eating her biscuit, looking over at Myles who is smelling his, nudging him to try it. TLA is watching Kensingten like a hawk while Ahren is still trying to figure out the taste of Ida May’s Sweet Tea. Terry finally looks up as Kensingten is putting his plate together.)
Kensingten: I am going to start with you Terry, the diet you once had is very well documented and what I did was call a lil’ Doctor friend of yours to get an idea from that specialized menu they made for you up there in that nasty city of Detroit. So I made you a famous Terry CHAMburger sweetie! Oh honey, this delicious sandwich has two half-pound patties, three cheeses, bacon, pulled pork, caramelized onions, spicy sausage links and a side of Onion Rings, this is a meal of champions! Don’t thank me now, cameraman focus on that beautiful burger.
(The camera pans to the burger. It looks like a heart attack.)
Kensingten: Okay now, focus back on me.
(The camera pans at Kensingten smiling as she slides the burger to Terry who just stares at it, eyebrow arched, practically speechless.)
Kensingten: Oh, you are welcomed! But I am not done, oh no, I look at the Team Captain, and what better meal for the man who leads this team?
Ahren: A Kobe Beef Filet with Dauphinoise potatoes and roasted broccolini?
Kensingten: A Dauphi what? No, no sugar I don’t cook Moroccan, but I have something so much better! What is a true GOAT without a plate of fried Goat and Mashed Potatoes! Oh, sugar plum, this is the meal kings will kill for, now while you are picking at the bones, don’t be slobbering or spitting on my counter and act like a nasty.
Ahren: Fried Goat? Will PETA come after me again!? Why would I eat my own kind?!?!
Kensingten: Relax, Carmen at the butcher shop told me this was a strong goat, eat up now, don’t let your food get cold!
(Ahren reluctantly touches the goat, grabbing the fork and feeling around on the plate. Kensingten reaches into the oven, taking out a hot plate, it is enchiladas, refried beans, tortillas, and Spanish rice, sliding the plate to TLA. La Pantera Sexual shakes his head.)
Kensingten: Oh, come on amigo! Call it a peace offering, besides, those enchiladas are beef, cheese and chicken, one of each in case you couldn’t choose which one you wanted. Grab that forko and the napkino, tuck it in your shirto and eato! Bon Appetito!
TLA: Gringa, them words make no sense adding an O behind them, and where the fuck is my sour cream and guacamole-o?
(Kensingten realizes she forgot the condiments, but brushes it off, laughing sarcastically.)
Kensingten: Oh TLA, honey you don’t need more calories, besides, those enchiladas are so good, they will remind you of Aunto Margherita on those Sunday afternoon family dinners.
TLA: It’s “Tia” you MAGA bitch.
Kensingten: Of course, it is and now Myles! Honey, I went hard on this one, let me tell ya! But one thing I am is a culinary genius using nothing but the freshest ingredients.
(Sliding the plate over, there is a steak, potatoes a shrimp on the Barbie and Blooming onion, Minerva quickly rips off a piece of the onion from his plate, tasting it. Myles looked a bit surprised but that is no ordinary steak.)
Myles: Are you kidding me?
Kensingten: GRILLED KANGAROO! Oh honey, I marinated that for three days and it is oh so tender! Once you take a bite of that like I do an Apple Cobbler, it will take you back home! Go on now, eat, don’t be shy.
(Myles stares at the plate. Ahren, Terry and TLA haven’t touched the food yet that has been prepared by Kensingten who is all smiles preparing the final plate, placing what seems to be a small critter with its legs up, followed with a scoop of grits, handing the plate to Minerva.)
Kensingten: Road Kill for you pumpkin. You look like the kind of woman that loves herself some fresh killed coon and…..
(The room goes silent, all eyes on the host as Minerva gestures Kensingten to lean in, the Gypsy Moth whispers in her ear.)
Minerva: Say Racoon, we don’t need this to blow up any further than it will.
Kensingten: Oh, ha ha ha…. Raccoon, girl eat your road kill and enjoy, the Red Eye Gravy is made of it’s blood, I know you’re like a vampire anyway, I couldn’t make people sick bringing in raw meat or fresh blood, call it upscale! It’s actually cooked honey.
(They share a stare down for a few uncomfortable seconds before Minerva shrugs her shoulders and starts eating the roadkill. The rest of the Team then follow, they start to eat as Kensingten looks on, hands cupped so proud of what she has done and her cooking.)
Minerva: You lied.
Kensingten: Excuse me?
Minerva: This is Possum, not Raccoon.
(Kensingten’s eyes widen, horrified that she knows the difference between tastes of Possum and Raccoon. Left speechless the rest of Team Voltage takes their bites, Ahren pulls a hair out of his teeth. Terry can’t even take a bite of the huge burger, TLA opened the enchiladas making sure they are not made out of rat, Myles took one bite and spit it out. Minerva is there enjoying her roadkill.)
Myles: That is terrible!
Ahren: I want a refund!
Terry: Yeah…. No.
TLA: This ain’t meat heina, what the fuck you trying to feed us?
(Looking shocked, Kensingten’s jaw drops, her hand planted firmly on her chest before fanning herself.)
Kensingten: That is Michelin five-star meals! I am the modern-day Julia Childs! You haven’t even tasted your food!
Myles: It tastes like shit!
Ahren: I have goat hair stuck in my teeth!
TLA: Nah, I ain’t touching that.
Terry: I’m on a diet.
(After a few moments of silence, they hear chewing coming from the end of the table, it is Minerva minding her own business, licking her fingers while enjoying her roadkill. She stops, turns to face her fellow teammates, offering some to Myles.)
Minerva: It’s not bad, want to try?
(Kensingten turns to the camera.)
Kensingten: Well, I do declare, while they enjoy their meals, I will get my cobbler ready. Thank you for joining us here tonight on the very first episode of Country Cookin’ and…..
(Suddenly Kensingten stops, as she looks over and notices Team Dynasty walking in behind Team Voltage eating. She points, trying to say something, anything but cannot muster the words.)
Charlie: What’s the matter love, cat got your tongue?
(All of a sudden, the commentary team can be heard again.)
James Peters: HE SECOND TEAM VOLTAGE HEARS CHARLIE MARR’S VOICE THEY TURN AROUND, BUT THE MEMBERS OF TEAM DYNASTY ARE ALL OVER THEM. CHARLIE ATTACKS AHREN, KHAMSIN JUMPS ON TERRY, MITSUBACHI ASSAULTS TLA, XANDER PAYNE SMOTHERS MYLES AND CHRIS ELITE GRABS MINERVA, SLAMMING HER HEAD INTO THE PLATE OF FOOD SHE HAD, RUBBING IT IN THE GRITS AND ROAD KILL BEFORE SLAMMING IT AGAIN, HE THEN PICKS HER UP BUT SHE TRIES TO FIGHT BACK WITH FOREARM AFTER FOREARM! KENSINGTEN RUNS OFF. MYLES COVERS UP AS XANDER IS LAYING FISTS ON HIM, HE FINALLY GETS ON HIS FEET, GRABS HIS PLATE AND STABS XANDER WITH THE SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE IN THE HEAD, BUT XANDER KICKS HIM RIGHT BETWEEN THE LEG, GRABBING THE KANGAROO STEAK AND SHOVING IT INTO HIS MOUTH!
Rich Russillo: XANDER GRABS MYLES AND THROWS HIM OVER THE COUNTER CRASHING INTO THE OVEN! TERRY IS OVERPOWERING KHAMSIN! WHIPPING HIM INTO THE REFRIGERATOR BUT XANDER GRABS A STOOL, SMASHING IT OVER TERRY’S BACK! KHAMSIN THEN DDT’S TERRY HEADFIRST INTO THE TILE FLOOR!
Persephone: MINERVA IS CLAWING AT CHRIS BUT HE LIFTS HER UP AND SLAMS HER BACK RIGHT ON THE STOVE TOP, SCREAMING IN PAIN AS SHE FALLS TO THE FLOOR NEXT TO MYLES! XANDER AND CHRIS ELITE START LAYING THE BOOTS ON MINERVA AND MYLES COVERS HER UP TAKING THE BLUNT OF THE KICKS! TLA GRABS MITSUBACHI AND DRAGS HIM ACROSS THE COUNTER SMASHING THE PLATES WITH HIS HEAD, BUT KHAMSIN AND CHRIS ELITE LAY OFF THE FALLEN MINERVA AND MYLES, ATTACKING TLA! HE TRIES TO FIGHT BACK BUT THEY HOLD HIM UP FOR MITSUBACHI TO GRAB AN IRON SKILLET AND SMASH IT ON THE FACE OF TLA BUSTING HIM OPEN AS HE FALLS LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES! THIS IS AMAZING!
James Peters: AHREN AND CHARLIE MARR ARE STILL THROWING FISTS AT EACH OTHER WHEN THE OTHER FOUR MEMBERS OF TEAM DYNASTY ASSAULT AHREN! THEY LIFT HIM UP IN THE AIR AND DROP HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE COUNTER! CHARLIE THEN GRABS AHREN, OPENS UP THE COOLER AND THROWS AHREN INSIDE, CLOSING THE LID AND SITTING ON TOP OF IT, CLAPPING FAST WHILE KHAMSIN, MITSUBACHI, XANDER PAYNE AND CHRIS ELITE STAND NEXT TO HIM LOOKING AT THE CARNAGE OF THE FALLEN TEAM VOLTAGE THAT HAS BARELY MOVED.
Charlie: One more for the good guys.
(Charlie starts to laugh as the rest of Team Dynasty smile at what they have done. The scene fades as the camera pans around the broken bodies of Team Voltage.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside.)
Rich Russillo: Holy shit. I can not believe that just happened!
Persephone: Man, I might not think Country Cookin’ is a waste of time after all if every episode is like that! :whew:
(The cameras come to circle around the Performance Center for a moment before they settle on Bella Braxton in the ring!)
Bella Braxton: The following singles match is scheduled for-
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!
(“Gangsta” by New Years Day starts and the crowd explodes into cheers for the former Interwire Champion, who comes out from the back to appear before the fans!)
Bella Braxton: First, from calabasas, California… weighing in at 135 pounds…. MS. EXTREME!!!
Rich Russillo: Earlier tonight, Ms. Extreme had a close call as she just narrowly avoided a fireball being thrown at her!!
Persephone: It’s unfortunate it missed; imagine how much better she’d look with a makeover like the one Kasey was gonna give her!
James Peters: Anyways! Kasey and Ms. Extreme has continued to heat up, no pun intended, and as we get closer to Territorial Invasion, it’s a match that we all continue to look forward to!
(Ms. Extreme enters the ring and acknowledges the crowd after mouthing off the whole way down the aisle about how she’d put Kasey down earlier in the night. Finally taking her spot, “Girei” by Yasuharo Takanashi plays over the P.A. system to the sound of a mixed reaction after the events from earlier, as Azrael makes his way out onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent, from Phoenix, Arizona…and accompanied by Mr. Jacobs… weighing in at 290 pounds… AZRAEL!!!
James Peters: Earlier tonight, Azrael put a stop to Parental Advisory’s attack on Donovan Duke! After that, we’ve come to learn that at Territorial Invasion, it will be Parental Advisory versus the team of Donovan Duke and this man here, Azrael!
Rich Russillo: And isn’t Donovan so lucky to have a guy like Azrael on his team?!
Persephone: Lucky?! Wasn’t he in prison or something?! All I know is that Captain Charisma better keep him away from Rex!
(Azrael enters the ring with a cold, emotionless expression as he stands across from Ms. Extreme, who shows her determination by getting into a readying stance in anticipation of the bell!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: These two are gonna year each other apart, I can just sense it! They’re circling the ring now- MS. EXTREME GOES RIGHT AT HIM WITH PUNCHES, OVER AND OVER! SHE’S SWINGING WITH EVERYTHING SHE’S GOT TO TRY TO GET THE EARLY ADVANTAGE!
James Peters: BUT AZRAEL IS BARELY EVEN FLINCHING! SHE TAKES HER TO FOCUS TO AIMING FOR THE MIDSECTION NOW BUT AZRAEL JUST STOPPED HER WITH A HEADBUTT! AND HE FLOORS HER WITH A LARIAT!
Rich Russillo: The surprised look on Ms. Extreme’s face says it all, she wasn’t expecting that and I’m sure the force behind how hard he just threw that lariat was crushing; it looked like he was trying to take her head off!
Persephone: This would be over if he did. 😌
James Peters: Ms. Extreme looks to use the ropes to get up but Azrael gets a handful of hair, snatching her up off the mat and launching her across the ring with a biel throw! Ms. Extreme crashes into the corner, and you really have to wonder when was the last time we’ve seen Camille manhandled like this in any way so early on in a match!
Rich Russillo: I’m sure Azrael and Mr. Jacobs would love for it to be made clear that he’s unlike anything we’ve seen in EAW before, and getting a handle on someone like Ms. Extreme would surely get that kind of attention!
Persephone: Because what he did to his parents wasn’t enough?
Rich Russillo: They contest that those circumstances of the whole situation were questionable
Persephone: Everyone knows you can’t trust these haunted house weirdos that manage to somehow filter through EAW’s doors.
James Peters: AND NOW AZRAEL HURLS ALL HIS WEIGHT INTO MS. EXTREME WITH A RUNNING SPLASH INTO THE CORNER! But look at that, he’s leaning into her to keep her standing as he looks out at the crowd, a blank stare in his eyes before he starts kneeing Ms. Extreme in the gut! Over and over again, he’s not letting up! And now he’s stomping away to get her down!
Rich Russillo: With his foot pressed to her neck, Ms. Extreme is kicking her legs while trying to pry his foot off of her! The referee moves in beside Azrael to make him aware of the five count but he doesn’t care! There’s one! Two! Three! Four!
James Peters: Azrael rushes up in front of the referee and the official quickly backs off! The referee points at his striped shirt, trying to assert himself and remind the behemoth just who’s calling the shots!
Persephone: And yet he still sounds like he’s been scared shitless !! You know who wouldn’t have been intimidated by this House of Horrors tragedy?! Sexy Rexyyy!! 😘
James Peters: Azrael goes to grab Ms. Extreme as she’s still down in the corner! Azrael brings her up into his hands and he aims to launch her to the canvas off a suplex! BUT MS. EXTREME LANDS ON HER FEET BEHIND HIM!
Rich Russillo: The crowd is all for Ms. Extreme’s show of agility as they sound off with cheers! MS. EXTREME TAKES OFF INTO THE ROPES AND REBOUNDS JUST AS AZRAEL TURNS AROUND, AND MS. EXTREME SLIDES THROUGH HIS LEGS AND STRIKES FROM BEHIND, HAVING QUICKLY CONNECTED WITH A CHOP BLOCK!
James Peters: HIS KNEE SEEMS TO GIVE FOR A MOMENT BUT HE STILL HASN’T GONE DOWN! Ms. Extreme stomps at the back of his knee, and throws herself back into the ropes to come running off them with a dropkick to the back of the leg and that FINALLY brings him down!
Rich Russillo: But only to a kneeling position! MS. EXTREME NEARLY TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH THAT SPINNING SIDE KICK AND SHE HAS FINALLY MANAGED TO GET AZRAEL DOWN ONTO THE MAT AND SHE GOES IN FOR THE PIN!!!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL KICKS OUT OF THE FIRST PIN OF THIS MATCH ALMOST IMMEDIATELY!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme snatches him up into a front headlock while Mr. Jacobs watches on, smacking the apron as he shouts for Azrael to get back in control! But he’ll have trouble doing that as Ms. Extreme keeps that headlock on while driving her knees up at his face! She’s leaving him with nowhere to go, and she’s forcing him to take those strikes literally head-on!!
Rich Russillo: But Azrael’s trying to fight out, forcing Ms. Extreme to quickly switch up angles, and now she takes off looking for that springboard bulldog! But Azrael dumps her out onto the apron! CLOTHESLINE!! MS. EXTREME GOES DOWN!!
James Peters: Azrael steps out onto the apron and drags Ms. Extreme up, and she’s back trying to fight him off with shot after shot to the midsection! And Azrael comes down right between the shoulder blades with an elbow strike! AND NOW A SNAP SUPLEX FROM AZRAEL TO TAKE THEM BOTH OFF THE APRON!!!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL LITERALLY SACRIFICES HIMSELF TO TAKE MS. EXTREME DOWN! BOTH ELITISTS ARE OUT!! The crowd rallies behind Ms. Extreme, trying to will her back into the fight through their support, but it’s Azrael who’s the first to move! Ms. Extreme is bound to be in some trouble here as she’s taken up- AND THROWN INTO THE NEARBY STEPS!!
James Peters: THE STEPS SHIFT FROM THEIR SET POSITION ON THE GROUND JUST AT THE CORNER OF THE RING THERE, AND NOW HE’S GOT HIS HANDS ON MS. EXTREME AGAIN!! AZRAEL LIFTS HER UP MUCH TO THE ENJOYMENT OF MR. JACOBS AND AZRAEL GETS A RUNNING START BEFORE THROWING MS. EXTREME WITH A POWERBOMB INTO THE BARRICADE!!!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme gets hauled up and speared back-first into the apron, before she’s rolled into the ring and Azrael makes the pin!!
Persephone: What do you mean she just kicked out?! I totally thought she was dead!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme fights to see the rest of this match, even if there’s growing concern about that decision! The words caution and hesitation aren’t exactly apart of Ms. Extreme’s vocabulary, and with all she’s done up to this point, anything about the idea of backing down won’t ever be, either!
Rich Russillo: That’s all very much true, but when she’s in there with Azrael, whose intentions are to dish out pain, hurt, and punishment whenever he wants and as much as he wants, it just might be what he wants! He’s not even concerned or frustrated with the fact she just kicked out, in fact, I’d say he’s pleased with it!
James Peters: Azrael takes Ms. Extreme up and over his shoulder, looking to run and drop her face-first over the top turnbuckle! Ms. Extreme nearly collapses in the corner after that but she holds onto the top rope to keep herself up! Azrael looking to barrel in and crush her with a shoulder thrust-
Rich Russillo: BUT MS. EXTREME KICKS HIM IN THE FACE! MS. EXTREME GRABS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AS SHE FIRES AT HIS HEAD WITH MULTIPLE FOREARM STRIKES, BEING SURE TO DRIVE HER ELBOW FORWARD BETWEEN THE EYES BEFORE SWIFTLY LANDING A KICK TO THE GUT!! NOW AN UPPERCUT!!!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME IS ALL KINDS OF FIRED UP AFTER THAT BURST OF OFFENSE!!! MS. EXTREME REELS BACK AND LUNGES FORWARD FOR A CLOTHESLINE-
Rich Russillo: BUT AZRAEL SNATCHES HER WRIST AND EASILY LIFTS HER UP OFF HER FEET AND OVER HIS SHOULDER!!! THE POWER !!!! AND NOW HE GOES TO THE CORNER AGAIN BUT MS. EXTREME PUSHES OFF TO SEND HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme runs forward but slides out the ring, grabbing one of his legs on the way out to trip him up and he goes to the mat! Ms. Extreme grabbing and positioning his legs with the ring post between them- MS. EXTREME FORCEFULLY YANKS HIM BACK AND AZRAEL COLLIDES WITH THAT RING POST RIGHT BETWEEN HIS LEGS!!
Persephone: That Mr. Jacobs guy is coming over now yelling at Ms. Extreme for that but she tells him to fuck off, just like I wish they’d fuck off with this match so I can see more of Rex!
James Peters: AND NOW MS. EXTREME TAKES THE LEG SHE HAD GONE AFTER EARLIER AND SLAMS IT OFF THE POST!! SHE GOES TO GRAB IT AGAIN BUT AZRAEL KICKS HER AWAY WITH HIS OTHER LEG AND TURNS OVER, BUT SHE REACHES IN AND GETS BOTH LEGS NOW, CONTORTING THEM INTO A RING POST FIGURE-FOUR LEG LOCK!!!!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is stopping at nothing to stay in control and she’s using the ring to her advantage! Azrael is trying to punch her off but there’s no getting to her! The referee shouts out at her that she’s got to let go or risk disqualification if she doesn’t break before the count is up!!
James Peters: And she finally does, but it might have something to do with Mr. Jacobs stalking over!! She gets up and immediately tells him to get back, wanting to keep him out of this for as long as possible even if he’s simply spectating; Ms. Extreme doesn’t trust him at all!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme climbs up onto the apron while Azrael is slowly moving up to his feet, shaking out of his legs after what could be the extensive damage to it- AND MS. EXTREME COMES SPRINGING OFF THE TOP ROPE AND DOWN ONTO AZRAEL’S SHOULDERS AS SHE TAKES HIM TO THE MAT WITH THAT METEORA!!! MS. EXTREME REACHES BACK TO GRAB ONE OF HIS LEGS FOR THE PIN!!!
James Peters: Azrael kicks out and Ms. Extreme simply turns over and starts battering the hell out of him with those punches! Relentless as ever, she’s not ready to give up the advantage she went and got for herself! But what lengths will she have to go to put a monster like this away?!
Rich Russillo: Whatever they might be, I’m sure she won’t shy away from going there! You would think Ms. Extreme was trying to break his face with the way she refuses to let up and she only finally does so to get to her feet, bringing Azrael with her and she slams him with that exploder suplex! Ms. Extreme comes down on his back as he’s rolled over face down with a double knee drop, and then turning back around to drop onto Azrael with a running senton!
James Peters: As Azrael is trying to push himself up, Ms. Extreme takes a shot at his ribs with a stiff kick, the sick thud being heard even over the roar of the crowd! The force turns Azrael over onto his back and Ms. Extreme heads to the corner, climbing the turnbuckles as she looks to go up top! The former Interwire Champion getting into position on the top turnbuckle! SHOOTING STAR SENTON!!!
Rich Russillo: RIGHT INTO AZRAEL’S KNEES!!! MS. EXTREME ROLLS AWAY SHOUTING AND HOLDING HER BACK, MEANWHILE AZRAEL IS STARTING TO GET UP!!!
James Peters: He’s pulling up with the ropes and he seems to shake off the pain, and now he’s coming at Ms. Extreme from behind while she’s writhing on the mat, like something straight out of a horror movie before he gets her off the mat !!!
Rich Russillo: Azrael getting her up and putting her head between his legs before she’s flipped and raised up into the air on his shoulders!! BUT MS. EXTREME STARTS PUNCHING DOWN TRYING TO ESCAPE!! BUT AZRAEL STARTS TOWARD THE ROPES, HE’S GONNA POWERBOMB HER RIGHT OUT THE RING-
James Peters: BUT MS. EXTREME GRABS ONE OF HIS ARMS IN A HANGING CROSS ARMBREAKER!! Ms. Extreme won’t let go and Azrael is trying to shake her off, and you can see that she’s got a nasty hold on that arm!
Persephone: And the referee regrettably doesn’t even get a chance to call this off early as Azrael swings Ms. Extreme right into the sides of the turnbuckles! Now twice! And one more time! Ms. Extreme is dropped on the apron and she struggles to get up when really she should just stay down-
James Peters: AND NOW AZRAEL REACHES THROUGH THE ROPES AND CARELESSLY GETS TWO HANDFULS OF HAIR, DRAGGING MS. EXTREME OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE AND STALLING FOR A MOMENT!!! SNAP DDT FROM OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE!!! MS. EXTREME GETS HER HEAD DRIVEN INTO THE MAT AND AZRAEL GOES FOR THE PIN!!!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT!!!
James Peters: AZRAEL TURNS RIGHT INTO THOSE PUNISHING KNEE STRIKES!! MS. EXTREME TRIES TO ROLL AWAY BUT AZRAEL STAYS RIGHT ON HER! AZRAEL CATCHES HER ON THE BACK, NOW THE CHEST, AND BEFORE SHE MAKES IT TO THE APRON SHE’S STRUCK WITH REPEATED ELBOW DROPS!!
Persephone: I hope she’s concussed for keeping this shit going; it’s what she deserves!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is struggling to make it to her feet but she’s trying nonetheless- UNTIL SHE’S FLYING OFF THE APRON AFTER BEING HIT WITH THAT BIG BOOT!! Azrael goes to follow her out and he’s stomping down on her back before he reaches down, getting his hand around her neck and holding her up high against the plexiglass!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is dangling up in the air as Azrael keeps her up on sheer, intimidating strength alone! Ms. Extreme tries prying his hand off her neck but it’s no use as Azrael rips her away from the plexiglass- CHOKE SLAMMING HER RIGHT TO THE GROUND!! MS. EXTREME BOUNCES OFF THE GROUND AND AZRAEL IS IGNORING THE REFEREE’S CALLS TO GET BACK IN THE RING!!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL BRINGS MS. EXTREME UP AND WHIPS HER INTO THE RING POST!! MS. EXTREME HITS OFF THE STEEL AND GOES TO THE GROUND, BUT ALREADY SHE’S TRYING TO GET UP! Ms. Extreme crawling to the apron for help, but Azrael clubs her over the back and she goes down to a knee!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme gets whirled around and Azrael lifts her up in a two-handed choke to set her on the apron- MS. EXTREME RAKES HIS EYES!! SHE KICKS HIM AWAY AND SENDS HIM HITTING BACK AGAINST THE PLEXIGLASS, FRIGHTENING THE FANS AND MS. EXTREME DIVES FOR THE CROSSBODY!!!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme takes him face-first into the ring post as payback, and then slams his head off the apron! She’s yet to let go as she spins them around looking to hit him off it again but Azrael looks to whip her into the steps-
James Peters: MS. EXTREME WITH THE DROP TOE-HOLD COUNTER TO SEND HIM HITTING FACE-FIRST INTO THE STEPS!!! MS. EXTREME GRABS HIM AND SLIDES HIM INTO THE RING, AND SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Persephone: What’s it gonna take for them to stop kicking out?
James Peters: Even Ms. Extreme looks frustrated here in the moment! She looks the official almost annoyed with the count and then to Azrael, who she goes to try to bring up with her arm around his neck! SHE’S GOING FOR THE TWIST OF- NO!! AZRAEL SPINS OUT AND CLOBBERS HER WITH A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE!!! MS. EXTREME STRUGGLES TO GET UP BUT FROM BEHIND COMES AZRAEL, LAUNCHING HER WITH A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme ends up in the corner and she can’t even get to her feet as Azrael barrels into the corner with a cannonball senton! He rolls out the corner with his eyes eerily and solely focused on Ms. Extreme as she’s yet to move, and he then drags her up onto the top turnbuckle! Azrael goes up as well and he brings her to stand on the top turnbuckle-
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is gonna try to fight off this superplex! She throws punches to Azrael’s ribs although he won’t budge, but that hasn’t stopped her! She connects with another series of strikes and she finally slips out- SHE LANDS A HEADBUTT! AND STOMPS AT AZRAEL’S KNEE TO SEND HIM PLUMMETING TO THE MAT AND THAT CRASH WAS THUNDEROUS!!!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO KEEP HER BALANCE AND AZRAEL- HE’S SLOWLY GETTING TO HIS FEET!!! MS. EXTREME ANTICIPATING HIS NEXT MOVE AND SHE LEAPS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE FOR A CROSSBODY-
James Peters: BUT AZRAEL CATCHES HER!! AZRAEL SWINGS HER AROUND AND OVER HIS SHOULDER TO BRING HER INTO POSITION FOR THE BURIAL!!! TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME SLIPS OUT AND GOES THE MAT, AND AZRAEL REACHES DOWN FOR HER LEGS BUT MS. EXTREME FLIPS OVER INTO A VICTORY ROLL STYLED PIN!!!
James Peters: AZRAEL KICKS OUT AND THE TWO OF THEM RACE TO THEIR FEET!! MS. EXTREME WITH THE FIRST STRIKE! AND NOW ANOTHER!! AZRAEL CLOBBERS MS. EXTREME WITH A MASSIVE RIGHT HAND!! AND NOW THREE MORE TO SEND HER STUMBLING BACK!!! MS. EXTREME KICKS HIM IN THE GUT AS HE COMES FORWARD AND SHE JUST BACKHANDS THE SHIT OUT OF HIM!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT THAT JUST MIGHT’VE ANGERED HIM AS HE SHOVES HER INTO THE ROPES AND LOOKS TO HIT A BIG BOOT!! NO!! MS. EXTREME DUCKS AND AZRAEL GETS CAUGHT ON THE TOP ROPE!! Ms. Extreme goes to the turnbuckles, getting up onto the middle buckle and dives off for a missile dropkick-
James Peters: AZRAEL GETS KNOCKED TO THE OUTSIDE BUT DOESN’T TAKE THE BRUNT OF THE ATTACK, AS HE PUSHED HER AWAY AND MS. EXTREME CRASHES TO THE MAT, CLUTCHING HER SHOULDER AS SHE CAME CRASHING DOWN ON HER SIDE!!
Persephone: The referee is checking on Ms. Extreme for a moment before he goes to look out the ring, but Mr. Jacobs waves the referee back to let him know he has the situation handled. Honestly, just call off the match! He’s going back to check on Camille for whatever reason, I’d just leave her to die, honestly!
Rich Russillo: And that’s why you’re on commentary and not in the ring in any way, shape, or form! The referee just might- WAIT! THERE’S A COMMOTION IN THE CROWD AND COMING THROUGH ARE PARENTAL ADVISORY! Jesse Barlow and Korey Gaines come through to ringside, and they’ve got a sledgehammer!
James Peters: The referee is too busy focused on Camille, under the impression that Mr. Jacobs will get him some answers in a moment! AND BARLOW JUST STRUCK WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER AS AZRAEL TRIED TO GET UP!! AND AZRAEL DOESN’T DROP; WHAT IS THIS MAN MADE OF?!?!
Rich Russillo: AND JESSE AND KOREY DOUBLE TEAM HIM NOW TO GET HIM DOWN, AND JESSE LANDS ANOTHER SLEDGEHAMMER SHOT, THIS TIME RIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION! All behind the referee’s and Ms. Extreme’s backs, this is sick! But they finally back off and inside the ring, Ms. Extreme hobbles up grabbing at her shoulder still but she’s assuring the ref that she can still go!
Persephone: And for what?! For who?! She could be hurt and she wants to make me suffer through the rest of this match; she’s so stupid!
James Peters: Parental Advisory have quickly rolled Azrael back into the ring and Ms. Extreme turns to find him down near the corner, trying to find some will in himself to move but Ms. Extreme with the low dropkick to the head to put him out! She doesn’t even realize what’s happened! She goes to the turnbuckles, climbing to the top and now she’s up! A BLIND FURY!!! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO AZRAEL AND SHE GOES FOR THE PIN!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Gangsta” by New Years Day begins to play and Ms. Extreme rolls off of Azrael, down on the mat beside him for a moment while the crowd gives a mixed reaction to the ending that just transpired.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. MS. EXTRE-
James Peters: PARENTAL ADVISORY SWARM THE RING AND GO RIGHT AFTER AZRAEL, MS. EXTREME JUST BARELY GETTING OUT THE WAY!!!
Rich Russillo: And seeing that sledgehammer in Jesse’s hands, I believe she’s realizing what occurred! She looks pissed!
Persephone: You think she’s pissed?! Imagine how I feel having had to sit through that!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme simply rolls out the ring, wanting nothing to do with what’s happening in the ring!
(“The Phoenix” by Fall Out Boy begins to play, sending the crowd into cheers as Donovan Duke comes running out!)
James Peters: BUT DARTING RIGHT PAST MS. EXTREME IS DONOVAN DUKE, AND HE ROLLS INTO THE RING, FLOORING KOREY WITH A CLOTHESLINE! JESSE FLEES FROM THE RING AND COMES AROUND TO GRAB KOREY, PULLING HIM FROM THE RING AND HELPING TO KEEP HIM UP!
Rich Russillo: The team of Donovan Duke and Azrael is going to be an interesting one against Parental Advisory! Donovan had intended to take on Parental Advisory himself, but Azrael showed up out of nowhere to come to his aid!
James Peters: And he seemed intent on returning the favor here, as Ms. Extreme surely wasn’t about to do anything. She’s still upset about what’s happened and she looks to the ring, shaking her head before she finally turns to head to the back-
Rich Russillo: KASEY KHAOS JUST THREW A FIREBALL AT MS. EXTREME’S FACE!!! MS. EXTREME DROPS TO GROUND COVERING HER FACE, LETTING OUT UNSETTLING SCREAMS AS KASEY STANDS PROUDLY OVER HER!!!
James Peters: AND KASEY’S ACTUALLY LAUGHING ABOUT IT!! SHE COULDN’T GET MS. EXTREME EARLIER WITH THAT, BUT SHE GOT HER NOW AND SHE’S LOVING EVERY SECOND OF IT! KASEY KICKS MS. EXTREME WHILE SHE’S DOWN JUST BEFORE OFFICIALS SWARM THE SCENE, SOME SHOUTING FOR HER TO LEAVE WHILE OTHERS CHECK ON CAMILLE!
(Ms. Extreme’s wails of pain are heard while she keeps her hands over her face, still in pain and screaming about not being able to see anything. With the camera raising away from Ms. Extreme and the EMTs attending to her, it goes to Kasey’s sinister smiling face, with a proud expression that leaves everyone knowing that she’s truly nothing short of twisted and demented. On that shot, the scene fades out.)
(Commercial break for Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Sale featuring Kassidy Heart filling her shopping cart with products she doesn’t need, nor does she have to buy on sale really because her husband is a billionaire.)
(Voltage fades back to the performance center, and Bella Braxton stands in the center of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following is a tag team match and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… Please welcome, SHAAANNEEE GAAATTTTEEESSS!!!!!
(The socially distanced crowd immediately begins to boo as ‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence hits, and Shane Gates slowly makes his way down the ramp. He walks straight down to the commentary desk and sits in the open seat already set up for him, and puts on his commentary equipment.)
James Peters: Shane Gates, glad to have you here!
Shane Gates: Just get this match over with.
(‘Survival’ by Eminem hits, and the socially distanced crowd begins to cheer as Adam Lucas makes his way to the stage. Adam looks around at the performance center audience, and begins making his way down the ramp on his own until ‘Unf***withable’ by Deez Nuts hits, causing most of the cheers in the performance center to turn into boos as Sienna Jade steps out onto the stage. She makes sure to raise her National Elite Championship up high as she makes her way down the ramp, following behind Adam Lucas who has already made it in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring…. The team of ADAM LUCAS…. AND THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, SIIIEENNNAAAAA JAAAAAADDDEEE!!!!!!
James Peters: Well Shane, since these will be your opponents soon I’m actually wondering what your thoughts are on this match, as well as both Adam Lucas and Sienna Jade.
Shane Gates: My thoughts? I don’t care about what they do tonight, they’re going to lose tonight just like at Territorial Invasion they’ll both lose out on the National Elite Championship. Nothing more needs to be said there.
Rich Russillo: I feel like you’re not giving these two enough credit. Sienna Jade is a former World Champion, and Adam Lucas has been one of the most impressive new signings to EAW. I think they’ll do just fine tonight.
Persephone: They won’t.
Rich Russillo: Huh? Why’s that-
James Peters: You know why Rich.
Persephone: Nobody can beat Rex McAllister! How many times do I have to say it until you guys listen!?
Rich Russillo: Oh. Right.
(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits, and the booing continues as SOSA Henderson walks out to the stage, making his way towards the ring with a smirk on his face. As SOSA approaches the bottom of the ramp, ‘Faneto’ is replaced by ‘Champion’ by Barnes Courtney, and all of the booing is replaced by cheers as Rex McAllister begins following behind SOSA Henderson. SOSA doesn’t wait for Rex as he makes his way up onto the apron, and Rex doesn’t look all too impressed with SOSA Henderson as he walks down the ramp with the EAW Championship around his waist.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents…. The team of SOSA HENDERSON….. AND THE EAW CHAMPION, REEEEEXXX MMCCAALLLIISSTTERRR!!!!!
James Peters: This should be interesting. Both teams are full of people who will be opponents come Territorial Invasion, I’m interested in seeing how they will work with each other tonight, if they’re even capable of working together.
Persephone: Don’t be stupid. Rex doesn’t need to work with SOSA, he can win this match all by himself. Even if he wanted to work with SOSA he’d do just fine anyway, Rex McAllister is a tag team expert! Nobody is better at this than him, get it through your thick skull!
Rich Russillo: A huge announcement was made earlier tonight about Rex and SOSA’s EAW Championship match. I’m excited to see how this goes knowing what they’ll be competing in very soon. Rex has experience in tag teams, but so does Sienna Jade. In fact, she’s one half of the tag team of the decade!
Shane Gates: Why are they taking so long? Just ring the bell already. If I’m going to be here I want to see Sienna Jade and Adam Lucas embarrass themselves already.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is underway, and it looks like both the EAW Champion Rex McAllister and the National Elite Champion Sienna Jade will be starting this match! Rex and Sienna wasting no time locking up with each other, and I’m sure all four Elitists are gonna want to try and end this match as soon as possible. After all they’re teaming up with the same people they’ll have to face come Territorial Invasion! Rex manages to get Sienna Jade in a standing headlock to start this match off, but the headlock doesn’t last very long as Sienna manages to push Rex into the ropes!
Rich Russillo: Rex bounces off the ropes and hits Sienna with a shoulder block! Rex now attempting to lock in a grounded rear chinlock but Sienna quickly gets back up to her feet, before grabbing Rex and putting him in a headlock of her own! Rex could be in a bit of trouble if he doesn’t find a way out of this- WAIT! REX TRIED LIFTING SIENNA UP INTO A BACK SUPLEX BUT SIENNA LANDED ON HER FEET BEFORE PULLING REX FROM BEHIND! WITCHES HAMMER- WAIT NO! REX DUCKS UNDER THE ELBOW BEFORE GRABBING SIENNA FROM
BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX BY THE EAW CHAMPION!
Shane Gates: See, this is just sad. Is this supposed to be your National Elite Champion?
Persephone: I agree, but it’s not like you’d do any better. It’s Rex McAllister she’s in the ring with, and he’s the best wrestler to ever grace the planet! Rexy now has Sienna in a crossface, but somehow that moron managed to get out of it pretty quickly, and she tried pulling Rex into a pin but Rexy immediately got the shoulder up! Both Sienna and Rexy are getting back to their feet, and Rexy now goes to capitalize- ugh, Sienna just hit him with an elbow! Stop! Now!
James Peters: Sienna just sent Rex into the corner before delivering a running forearm- and just like that Sienna just tagged in Adam Lucas! I don’t think he expected a tag that early but he seems to be perfectly
fine with it as he enters the ring and delivers a kick to Rex’s midsection, before dragging him to the mat with a snapmare! Adam running the ropes, AND THERE’S A BOOT TO REX’S FACE! Adam now going for the cover, looking to possibly put away the EAW Champion!
Rich Russillo: QUICK KICK OUT BY REX MCALLISTER! Adam Lucas with a huge knee lift to the midsection as Rex attempted to get back to his feet, and now it looks like he’s trying to go for a suplex, but Rex manages to keep himself down on his feet! Rex with a punch to the midsection, and now he drops Adam Lucas with the snap suplex! Rex now with a hold of Adam’s arm, but before Rex could go for a hold Adam manages to get to a knee, and punch Rex off of him! Both Elitists get back up, AND ADAM LUCAS GOES FOR A BIG BOOT BUT REX SAW IT COMING AND MOVED OUT THE WAY!
Shane Gates: Both Adam and Sienna are embarrassing themselves right now.
Persephone: I agree, once again! Rex just pushed Adam into the corner, WAIT NO! Ugh, why Rexy!? Rex just tagged SOSA into the match so now this is gonna be way less interesting until he tags Rex back in. SOSA is hitting multiple elbows to the side of Adam’s head, and now he’s just stomping away at him. Well SOSA hasn’t screwed up just yet but he’s him, so if I give him time I’m sure he’ll surprise me.
James Peters: Adam is pulling himself to his feet and grabbing the ropes so SOSA has to back away from
him, AND THAT ALLOWS ADAM TO QUICKLY HIT SOSA WITH A HUGE FOREARM! I DON’T THINK SOSA EXPECTED THAT ONE AS HE IS DROPPED TO THE MAT, AND NOW HE’S FORCED TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING! Adam Lucas is quick to follow behind though! Adam grabs SOSA from behind, AND HE SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE PLEXIGLASS! SOSA is in a bit of trouble here, Adam is all over him right now!
Rich Russillo: Adam grabbing SOSA once again, AND HE SENDS HIM INTO THE RING POS- WAIT NO! SOSA STOPS HIMSELF WITH HIS FOOT, AND NOW HE GRABS ADAM’S HEAD AND SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE POST! Adam now trying to roll back into the ring, but SOSA pulls him back out and rams him into the barricade! SOSA finally bringing Adam back into the ring, and as soon as he follows behind he goes for a cover on Adam Lucas!
Rich Russillo: Kickout by Adam Lucas!
Shane Gates: Huh, I didn’t expect Adam to kick out of that. Not like it matters, he and Sienna’s still going to lose, neither of them are good enough to win.
Persephone: As long as SOSA doesn’t screw things up for Rexy I’m good. SOSA is on top of Adam now punching away at him, and for some reason he’s looking at Rex while doing it. I don’t know if he’s trying to prove a point or something but SOSA is complete garbage so it doesn’t make much sense to me. Anyways Adam Lucas managed to push SOSA off of him, and now he’s quickly getting back to his feet before going for a roundhouse kick.
James Peters: SOSA managed to duck the roundhouse kick before going for an enzuigiri, but Adam had that one scouted! Adam blocked the enzuigiri with his arm, and now he grabs SOSA’s legs and attempts to lock in a boston crab, but SOSA’s quickly able to pull himself to the ropes before Adam could even get the submission fully locked in! Adam pulling himself out to the apron before pulling himself up, and SOSA now attempts to strike while he’s there but Adam blocks a punch before delivering a forearm! Adam now heading up to the top rope, AND HE HITS SOSA WITH A DIVING DOUBLE AXE HANDLE!
Rich Russillo: Adam walks towards his corner, and after taking some time to think he tags in the National Elite Champion! Sienna Jade is in the match as SOSA Henderson starts using the turnbuckles to get back up, AND SIENNA RUNS INTO SOSA WITH A HUGE KICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! WHAT A MOVE BY SIENNA JADE JUST AS SHE GOT BACK INTO THIS MATCH, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR THE COVER ON SOSA HENDERSON!
Persephone: He better kick out….
Rich Russillo: AND HE DOES, SOSA KICKS OUT! Sienna Jade pulling SOSA Henderson back up now, AND SHE GOES FOR THE WITCHES HAMMER AGAIN- BUT SOSA INTERCEPTS THE ELBOW BY HITTING HIS OWN! Sienna clearly didn’t expect that as she’s on spaghetti legs now, AND THAT ALLOWS SOSA HENDERSON TO RUN THE ROPES- JUST FOR SIENNA TO HIT HIM WITH A HUGE DROPKICK! Now SOSA is the one on spaghetti legs as he was just hit in the face by that dropkick, and now it looks like Sienna’s gonna attempt a suplex!
Persephone: Wow, Sienna’s an idiot. SOSA’s much bigger than Sienna, what does she think she’s doing- oh. She’s actually starting to get him off his feet, but it doesn’t matter much anyway as SOSA managed to bring himself back down to his feet before pulling Sienna up and dropping her with a brainbuster. See? Told you Sienna was stupid, there was no way she was gonna connect with a move like that.
Shane Gates: She’s way too small to be a real threat to anyone, which is just gonna make my job that much easier at Territorial Invasion.
Persephone: Uhh… Cool.. I guess..
James Peters: SOSA is backing into the corner, and it looks like this is the time he needed to try and recover. SOSA now pulling himself back up to his feet using the turnbuckles, and- wait a second! Rex McAllister just tagged himself back into the match! Rex is back in and SOSA can’t believe it! He clearly wasn’t ready to leave the match but it looks like it doesn’t matter now!
Persephone: Who cares if he wanted to tag out or not? He clearly needed to, thank God for Rex McAllister.
James Peters: Sienna Jade is back to her feet, BUT REX MCALLISTER IMMEDIATELY PLANTS HER WITH HIS SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX IN THE MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Rex doesn’t look like he’s finished just yet though! Rex pulls Sienna back up, AND HE PLANTS HER WITH ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! REX IS PULLING SIENNA BACK UP AGAIN, AND THERE’S HIS THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX IN A ROW! Sienna Jade is in a lot of trouble right now with all these suplexes being delivered, and Rex now looks like he’s aiming for four in a row, but Sienna manages to grab onto the ropes this time, grabbing onto them as tight as she can so Rex is forced to back away from her!
James Peters: Rex lets go of Sienna, BUT NOW HE CHARGES IN- RIGHT INTO A BACK ELBOW! Now it’s Sienna charging in- but she runs right into a boot from Rex! Rex grabbing Sienna now, AND HE GOES FOR THE LAST GERMAN SUPLEX- BUT SIENNA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET JUST LIKE SHE DID EARLY ON IN THIS MATCH! REX TURNS TOWARDS SIENNA, AND SIENNA CHARGES TOWARDS REX AND HITS HIM IN THE FACE WITH A SHINING WIZARD! THE EAW CHAMPION IS DOWN AND NOW SIENNA IS GOING FOR THE COVER, LOOKING TO PUT HIM AWAY!
Rich Russillo: BUT THAT STILL WASN’T ENOUGH, REX MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! Sienna looks a bit surprised that Rex actually managed to get the shoulder up there, but now she’s making her way up to the top rope! I’ve gotta admit, both teams have been working pretty well with each other so far, and it looks like Sienna might put the match away with what she’s attempting right now! Sienna up on the top rope, AND SHE GOES FOR THE DIVING MOONSAULT!! STARSTRUCK….. DOESN’T CONNECT, IT DOESN’T CONNECT!!! REX MANAGED TO GET HIS KNEES UP!
Shane Gates: Just ridiculous.
Persephone: YES YES YES YES YES! COME ON REXY!!! REX IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE’S ABOUT TO FINISH SIENNA JADE OFF FOR GOOD! SIENNA’S BARELY GETTING BACK TO HER FEET- BUT AS SOON AS SHE DOES REX HITS HER WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE! SIENNA IS STUNNED, AND NOW REX PLANTS HER WITH THE BEST OLYMPIC SLAM I’VE SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! COME ON REXY, YOU GOT THIS! REX IS PINNING THAT LOSER SIENNA JADE AND THIS MATCH IS DONE! IT’S OVER, RING THE BELL NOW!
James Peters: SIENNA JADE KICKS OUT THIS TIME! Rex now trying to pull Sienna up- BUT INSTEAD SIENNA MANAGES TO PULL REX DOWN INTO A FUJIWARA ARMBAR! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM!? SIENNA HAS REX TRAPPED IN THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR, AND I DON’T KNOW IF REX HAS ANYWHERE TO GO RIGHT NOW, HE MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE TO TAP OUT UNLESS HE CAN QUICKLY FIND A WAY OUT OF THIS! There’s no way he could’ve seen that coming, Sienna pulled that out of thin air just as Rex was in control of the match! Stuff like this is exactly why she’s the National Elite Champion and the self proclaimed Locker room Leader!
Shane Gates: What’s so impressive about this exactly? She got Rex by surprise, so what? Not like he tapped out yet anyway.
Rich Russillo: Rex is crawling towards the ropes, doing everything he can to make sure he doesn’t tap out, but that submission is in tight! Can Rex make it in time, or is he gonna have to tap out- WAIT! SIENNA LETS GO OF THE SUBMISSION TO DRAG REX TOWARDS HER CORNER! SIENNA TAGS ADAM LUCAS BACK IN, AND THERE’S A STOMP ONTO REX’S SHOULDER BEFORE SIENNA EXITS THE RING! Adam is back in, and he’s doing the smart thing here as he drags Rex away from the ropes and goes right back into the fujiwara armbar submission! I’m sure Adam and Sienna don’t exactly like or even respect each other all that much, but Adam knows he needs to do whatever he can to win this week, even if it means working together with her.
Persephone: UGH! Come on Rex! Why is this loser Adam Lucas holding you in a submission, you’re you! You’re so much better than this guy, nobody even knows who he is!
James Peters: REX MANAGES TO ESCAPE THE SUBMISSION THIS TIME! Rex rolled onto his back and escaped the submission from there, and now both men get back to their feet! Rex now charging in- BUT ADAM STOPS HIM WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE, AND HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A HIP TOSS- INTO THE PILEDRIVER!! REX IS DOWN! REX HAS TO BE DOWN AND OUT AFTER THAT! ADAM IS GOING FOR THE COVER AND I THINK HE’S ABOUT TO SCORE THE BIGGEST WIN IN HIS EAW CAREER! ADAM LUCAS IS ABOUT TO PIN REX MCALLISTER!
Rich Russillo: NO, NOT YET! Rex managed to get the shoulder up, it’s not over just yet!
Shane Gates: Of course it isn’t.
Rich Russillo: Adam Lucas is pulling Rex back to his feet, AND NOW HE SENDS HIM TO THE ROPES! POP UP POWERBOM- WAIT NO! REX HITTING ADAM RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD, AND ADAM HAS REX ON HIS SHOULDERS BUT HE’S STRUGGLING TO ACTUALLY CONNECT WITH THE POWERBOMB! REX PUNCHING ADAM OVER AND OVER AS ADAM IS JUST STUMBLING AROUND THE RING, AND NOW SIENNA IS FORCED TO TAG HERSELF INTO THE MATCH! REX FINALLY GETS OUT OF ADAM’S GRASP BUT I DON’T THINK HE NOTICED THE TAG! REX WITH AN ENZUIGIRI TO ADAM- JUST TO BE HIT WITH THE WITCHES HAMMER BY SIENNA!
Persephone: NO NO NO NO!!! STOP!! DON’T PIN REX!!! GET OFF OF HIM!!!
Persephone: YESS!!!!! REXY KICKED OUT :blessed: !!!! COME ON REX HURRY UP AND KILL HER!
(Suddenly, Shane Gates takes off his commentary equipment and exits the desk.)
James Peters: Huh? What was that all about? Nevermind that, Rex doesn’t look too good, there’s no way he’d be able to continue! He’s gonna have to make the tag, right now he’s in the perfect position for Sienna Jade to finish him off! Sienna is pulling Rex up to his feet, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR THE RDG- BUT WAIT! REX JUST HIT FREED HIS LEGS BEFORE PULLING HIMSELF BACK DOWN! SPINNING SIDE SLAM BY REX MCALLISTER!! BOTH CHAMPIONS ARE DOWN! Rex is using the ropes to try and pull himself up, meanwhile Sienna Jade is trying to make it towards her corner- HEY WAIT A SECOND! SHANE, SHANE WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?
Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES JUST PULLED ADAM LUCAS OFF OF THE APRON AS SIENNA TRIED TO REACH THE TAG! HOW DID THE REFEREE NOT SEE THAT, THAT SHOULD’VE BEEN A DISQUALIFICATION- OH NOW I SEE IT! SOSA Henderson just distracted the referee by trying to enter the ring, and that allowed Shane to take out Adam Lucas! Sienna is now coming to the realization that her partner was taken out by Shane, BUT SHE HAS NO TIME TO REACT AS REX DROPS HER WITH A DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX! Rex now dragging Sienna away from her corner, and I think Rex is sensing the end of this match! Wait, wait a second! SOSA HENDERSON JUST TAGGED HIMSELF IN JUST AS REX WAS SIENNA JADE UP! REX HASN’T NOTICED, BUT SOSA HENDERSON IS THE LEGAL MAN RIGHT NOW!
James Peters: THE REX EFFECT!!! REX JUST PLANTED SIENNA JADE WITH THE REX EFFECT, AND NOW HE’S TRYING TO GO FOR THE COVER BUT HE’S NOT THE LEGAL MAN! The referee is telling Rex what just happened, and Rex is just now beginning to piece together what SOSA just did! SOSA Henderson is on the top rope, and Rex just sighs before leaving the ring! PAID IN FULL!!! THE PAID IN FULL CONNECTS ON THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, AND NOW SOSA HENDERSON GOES FOR THE COVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners….. THE EAW CHAMPION REX MCALLISTER, AND SOOOOOSSSAAAAAAA HHEEENNNDDEERRRSSSOONNNN!!!!!!
James Peters: And there it is, SOSA Henderson pins the National Elite Champion, but not without some confusion near the end of that match! Shane Gates managed to take Adam Lucas off the apron stopping Sienna from getting the tag, and thanks to SOSA distracting the referee he was able to get away with it! On top of that, Rex had the match won but SOSA tagged himself in, putting the finishing touches on this match his own way!
Rich Russillo: I’m sure Rex isn’t too happy with how all of that went, but in the end his team still wins tonight, and this match may still be going on if it weren’t thanks to SOSA Henderson and Shane Gates doing what they did. Sienna Jade though, I’m sure she won’t be too happy with this one.
Persephone: Who cares? And is anyone gonna talk about how Shane and Adam have fought all the way up the ramp? Is anyone gonna stop them or anything? Actually, whatever. Doesn’t matter. Rex won.
(‘Faneto’ hits as SOSA Henderson and Rex McAllister have their hands raised by the referee, and Rex can’t help but look over at SOSA with an unamused look on his face, meanwhile SOSA just looks confident as always after his victory. As Shane and Adam seem to have ended up backstage, Sienna Jade slowly rolls out of the ring, clearly unhappy with what just happened. As Rex McAllister is handed his EAW Championship while still looking at SOSA who’s celebrating his victory, Voltage fades away from the ring area and cuts to an area backstage.)
(After the assault which happened earlier at the hands of Team Dynasty, and even after the happenings on Dynasty Friday at the hands of Team Showdown, it seems like Team Voltage is a little worse for wear, they have taken quite the beating and with the huge Main Event coming up, they are all in less than 100% but do not care, they are ready to fight. We find Ahren already in his entrance gear pacing, holding an ice pack to the back of his neck. Myles has lacerations and is bruised up, checking at the sores on Minerva’s back from the slam on the hot stove. She then turns to him, placing an ice pack on his shoulder.)
Minerva: Thank you, I don’t say that often.
Myles: That’s what teammates are for, right?
(She nods, fuming about the attacks, Myles is still focused and determined, ready to do whatever he can to survive the match and win, Ahren as well, doing his best to get into the fighting mentality, only minutes away from going out to the ring.)
Ahren: They put me in a cooler! I do not like tight spaces! They will NOT get away with this, they will NOT! We go out there and defeat Team War Games, then we go to Territorial Invasion and we WIN!
Myles: You’re preaching to the choir.
Minerva: My back is killing me, I may have sprained or broken something and I am sick of this shit! Enough is en……
(She is interrupted by a screaming woman in a navy blue suit and white heels, sprinting down the hallway, they notice that Captain Charisma is right behind her, for as she gets closer, Ahren rolls his eyes, knowing it is Rachelle Owens, the representative from PETA that gave him a hard time about Jennipurr and was very prevalent in traumatizing the poor cat.)
Ahren: No! Not her! Get her away heathen! Be gone now!
Rachelle: Excuse me, sir. I’m with PETA and you are under arrest for Kangaroo abuse!
(Furious, Ahren stands his ground but surprisingly Rachelle had turned to Myles, as Minerva steps back a few feet. Captain Charisma finally reaches the group.)
Captain Charisma: You cannot continue to come here and make these accusations without going through the proper channels! I’m sick of PETA always disrupting the show!
Rachelle: I have gone through the proper channels and what you are running here is a slaughterhouse! Myles, how dare you think these actions from a few weeks ago will go unpunished! I watched you on Television assault and knee a kangaroo! A defenseless and innocent kangaroo that didn’t pose any threat to you or was trying to attack you in any sort of way! This can be constituted as a criminal act and will be reprimanded for it! Do you understand the implications of your actions!?
Captain Charisma: You don’t need to answer that Myles.
Myles: Nah, its fine, I will answer this Sheila.
Rachelle: It’s Rachelle!
Myles: Right… first off the kangaroo is a dangerous animal, secondly it lived, so relax!
(Rachelle gets right up to his face, pointing and jabbing her fingers into his chest, Myles looks down, Ahren is there watching, Minerva’s fists clenched while Captain Charisma is trying to diffuse the situation.)
Captain Charisma: This is not necessary Rachelle!
Rachelle: It is necessary when your promotion just allowed him to EAT kangaroo earlier! He was served a meat that is illegal here in the state of New Jersey and the person who makes it must have a license, but that is not even the point here, an innocent animal was killed and consumed by this man right here! Isn’t it bad enough that I had to come here already to reprimand this….. this…… ogre!
(The PETA representatives’ attention solely on Ahren now, pointing at himself.)
Rachelle: Yes, you! After you have put your cat in danger and …. And…. Is THAT REAL FUR!?
Ahren: Uh, yes, it is.
(She is shocked, flabbergasted, holding her chest in disbelief that Ahren not only puts Jennipurr in danger but now is wearing a fur coat. With Myles kneeing a kangaroo and then at least taking a bite out of a kangaroo steak prepared to him by Kensingten earlier before they were viciously attacked by Team Dynasty, Ahren sighs, shaking his head, turning his back on her.)
Rachelle: That is it! I am going to make sure that I shut this place down for good! I will NOT allow for anyone to abuse animals and devour them for consumption like you have! I should have taken the cat away from you permanently, but you Crocodile Dundee? You, we have it all on tape and I am going to make sure that this goes to the full extent of the law. Now, I want these two men to be escorted out of the building, NOW!
Captain Charisma: What!? They are my Main Event! I need you to come to my office so we can discuss this Rachelle, I cannot allow PETA to ruin my show and come barging in here thinking they can harass my wrestlers and….
(Rachelle didn’t want to hear it, quickly cutting off the Voltage Commissioner.)
Rachelle: Enough! I am calling this in. First this weirdo and the cat and now this smug bastard and the abuse and consumption of kangaroo!? Your Main Event tonight is NOT HAPPENING, understand!? Furthermore I…..
(BEFORE RACHELLE COULD EVEN REACT, MINERVA SLAPS HER ACROSS THE FACE CAUSING HER TO STUMBLE. THE GYPSY MOTH WITH RAGE PAINTED ALL OVER HER FACE GRABS RACHELLE MUCH TO THE SURPRISE OF CAPTAIN CHARISMA, MYLES AND AHREN FOURNIER, LAUNCHING HER OVER SOME PRODUCTION CRATES RIGHT OUT OF HER HEELS! MINERVA DROPS ON TOP OF HER AND STARTS LAYING FISTS INTO THE FACE OF THE PETA REP.)
Minerva: I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THIS SHIT!
(MINERVA CONTINUES TO FURY OF PUNCHES BEFORE PICKING RACHELLE UP TO HER FEET, LIFTING HER UPSIDE DOWN AND DROPPING THE PRINCESS KILLER, THE SPINNING TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER RIGHT ON THE HARD FLOOR KNOCKING RACHELLE COMPLETELY UNCONSCIOUS AND BUSTING HER OPEN! SPRAWLED OUT ON THE FLOOR, MINERVA TURNS TO CAPTAIN CHARISMA, WHO BACKS UP AND NODS, SHE THEN TURN TO MYLES AND AHREN WHO ARE STANDING THERE LOOKING ON IMPRESSED AND ADMIRING HER ACTIONS.)
Minerva: Enough of this shit, we have wasted enough time, after the last few days, it’s time to kick a bunch of Prima-Donna’s asses.
(Passing Myles she runs her fingers across his chest and toward the gorilla position, he smirks as Ahren pats him on the back.)
Ahren: I am starting to like her.
Myles: Me too.
(They follow her out as Captain Charisma turns to Rachelle who is out cold, he calls for medical to come and clean up the mess trying to hold back his smile.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for NTT docomo, the most popular cellphone carrier in Japan, featuring Komatsu Ogawa. He is talking to someone on the phone while passionately vowing 王朝は最高を支配します!!! :lupe:)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the backstage area where Sofia Clarke is standing by. She smiles into the camera and after a momentary pause, she begins to speak.)
Sofia Clarke: Last night on Showdown, Justin Windgate and Jack Ripley squared off in a one-on-one match with their War Games captain, Xavier Williams, watching at ringside. The match was well on its way to becoming a classic when our own Drake King wiped out Xavier Williams and immediately went to Gavin Kirkland, demanding an apology for some of the remarks he had made during the broadcast. The distraction allowed Voltage team captain, Malcolm Jones, to shove Jack Ripley off the turnbuckle, while Darcy May Morgan climbed into the ring and knocked Justin Windgate out cold. Malcolm would put Jack down for good with ‘Shake the Room’ and Team Voltage would retreat from the ring area as the Showdown lockerroom emptied out and security came rushing to the ring. The EAW Universe has been calling Voltage’s attack a classic hit and run and right now, I have Malcolm, Drake, and Darcy with me. Welcome, guys.
(The camera zooms out to show Malcolm and Darcy standing to Sofia’s left and Drake standing to her right. With their match coming up in a matter of moments, all three are dressed in their ring gear.)
Sofia Clarke: I guess the question on everyone’s minds right now is “why”. Why show up on Showdown and get involved in their main event?
Malcolm Jones: Well someone had to help keep their ratings from tankin’, it might as well be the three of us. We been waiting for these pussies to invite us to their show, and every week that goes by, it’s radio silence from the Showdown squad except for when they all wanted to get together for the first time and talk they shit a few weeks ago. It’s all fine and good for them to come to Dynasty or come here, but they can’t be fucked to roll out the red carpet for the rest of us, so honestly, we decided to just show the fuck up and fuck ‘em up. It’s really nothing more deep than that.
Darcy May Morgan: And who really cares if we spoiled their main event or not? The fact two members of their team were fighting over Justin Windgate’s ego getting in their way is stupid if you want my opinion. I understand that Justin is in his feelings because the entire world believes he’s going to eat the pin come War Games, but that was bound to happen the second Xavier selected him to be in this match. Showdown has a plethora of people Xavier could have gone with. I mean, even Raven Roberts would have been a better option. She was part of the winning team last year, which would have given them a team of like all winners.
Malcolm Jones: But sure, Justin Windgate makes sense.
Darcy May Morgan: :mjlol:
Sofia Clarke: Drake, what are your thoughts on what happened last night?
Drake King: I am happy to go along with whatever Malcolm and Darcy wish to do. I want them to have fun and enjoy themselves, and if that means we go to Showdown and attack their War Games team, then we go to Showdown and attack their War Games team. I will proudly play my part and support my team, because what my brother Malcolm and my sister Darcy want is what truly matters to me. These two amazing individuals have become family to me.
(Drake smiles serenely at Malcolm and Darcy, who flash him big fake smiles in return. Drake clasps his hands together.)
Drake King: Team Voltage is united as one, and together we came to the decision to give our opponents over on Showdown something to think about. With Dynasty in disarray at the moment, and Malcolm and Darcy left unsatisfied from the fight that ensued on Friday, it did not take us long to make our decision.
Sofia Clarke: I definitely want to ask you three about that. Mr. DEDEDE stripped Sarah Price of the Dynasty captaincy and basically put her spot in War Games and in EAW on the line. If she does end up getting the boot, how does this change your preparation for the match?
Malcolm Jones: It doesn’t make a damn bit of difference what dizzy bum StarrStan places on the team. No Elitist on this roster can fuck with me, and that includes the geriatric megalomaniacs who refer to themselves as the Liquid Swordz, emphasis on the ‘z’ because they gotta feel hip. You want my opinion? Sarah Price clearly isn’t ready for this type of responsibility. That seems to happen a lot around here when people who actually matter put their stock in someone, but it’s honestly whatever. It’s not like she was going to be much of a factor anyway.
Sofia Clarke: I don’t think a lot of people share that opinion.
Darcy May Morgan: It doesn’t matter if they do or not. Sarah Price was always going to be a weak link in the match, and it doesn’t shock me that someone who’s as much of an arse as Mr. DEDEDE waited this long to put his foot down. Maybe the Liquid Swordz were just toying with Sarah the entire time? I don’t know. Either way, whoever ends up in the ring for Dynasty is going to end up on the receiving end of a loss because just like we’re going to do tonight, we are going to win War Games.
Drake King: Darcy is absolutely correct. It became abundantly clear this week that the three of us are Voltage’s only hope when it comes to a team win at Territorial Invasion. Initially I thought that our Brand Warfare team would be bogged down by TLA, but now I understand that none of them have any hope. It’s a really sad situation and I had hoped for better things for this brand. However, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and I can not expect everyone to fall in line with the future I have envisioned right away. It will take time, but I am a patient man. I will go through this entire company if that is what I must do. Drake the Redeemer’s vision will come to fruition one way or another.
Sofia Clarke: Well, I guess that sums that up. Thank you for your time and good luck out there.
(Malcolm, Drake, and Darcy take their leave and Voltage fades back to the ringside area.)
(The camera fades back after the final commercial break of the night as the camera shows Bella Braxton standing in the middle of the ring with a smile on her face as she begins to speak)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest, is a 6-PERSON TAG TEAM MATCH!!! And it is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Scenario’ by Pop Smoke plays up to cheers as the Voltage WarGames Team makes their way out to the stage, Drake King who spreads his arms out with a smirk on his face before bringing himself to a praying position. Malcolm Jones who stands next to him walking straight forward and posing on the stage, along with Darcy May Morgan who struts out and does the same on the stage. But before long the looks on their faces both match one another with a serious look on one another’s faces building as they look at one another slightly before making their way down the ramp and to the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… at a combined weight of 585 pounds.. THE TEAM OF… THE LAST MESSIAH… DRAKE KING!!!!!!!!!! BIG 092MLBOA… MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!!!!! AND THE LEADING LADY… DARCY MORGAN!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: I’m sure all of the people in this team see the importance in this matchup. Knowing that this is the first time that all three of them are properly teaming with one another, wouldn’t you think that this is a great chance to show the rest of the WarGames teams what they’re made of?
James Peters: Of course, I don’t see anything wrong with that. This is definitely a must win for them in order to stand out in terms of the WarGames match and make themselves known that they’re a team that you need to focus on, and of course this is their night to do exactly that. If they’ll win? Well we’ll just have to find out right?
Persephone: Say it might just be me, but if I bring Sarah Price out to the ring, do you think Drake will cower in fear and end this match quickly for his team?
Rich Russillo: No… hasn’t he gotten over Sarah already?
Persephone: He has?! Oh I just haven’t been paying attention, whatever then carry on.
(All of the members of Team Voltage enter into the ring, all of them doing their own poses at the center of the ring before they all make their way to their corners with importance in each step as they begin to plan. Malcolm agreeing to go first as Drake and Darcy head onto the apron and wait patiently as ‘Scenario’ fades out. ‘Starboy’ by The Weeknd plays up to a mixed reaction as the team of Ahren Fournier, Myles, and Minerva make their way out to the stage. Both of them having their different expressions on their face as they look around. Ahren has a smirk on his face full of confidence as always heading into this matchup, Myles has a serious look on his face not concerned for anything around him and focusing solely on the ring, while Minerva keeps a normal look on her face as she stands there as well. It isn’t long as all of them begin to head down the ramp and to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… at a combined weight of 559 pounds… THE TEAM OF… THE GOAT… AHREN FOURNIER!!!!!!!!!! THE PRINCESS KILLER… MINERVA!!!!!!!!! AND THE MANIFEST… MYLES!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for the Voltage Brand Warfare team, compared to the other teams they seem like the more composed team, and they also do seem like that they have a lot on their plate when it comes to the competition in the Territorial Invasion match, so imagine beating the WarGames team tonight!
James Peters: I’m sure this is the most that they’d want out of this and it’d definitely put the other teams on notice for sure. I see this as a match that is on their top priorities if they want to make a real impact heading into their Brand Warfare match, and imagine doing that? I don’t think the other teams would be ready for it, would you?
Persephone: Oh c’mon what do you really expect out of this team? Ahren’s going to be too busy focusing on himself or something like that, and Myles and Minerva are probably going to be making out or something! Give me a reason they have a chance tonight, OR at Territorial Invasion, it doesn’t click with me does it?
(All of the members of the Brand Warfare Voltage team circle around the ring and enter in as it’s clear they’re all business heading into this matchup. Myles wastes no time heading to his corner as Ahren poses at the center of the ring along with Minerva. All of them meet up in the corner and talk a plan as ‘Starboy’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell finally for this match to begin)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this match is underway now! We have Malcolm Jones starting and Myles as well as both of them quickly circle around the ring looking to lock up. Myles slowly beginning to push Malcolm to the ropes but it’s Malcolm that quickly slips through and quickly transitions into a side headlock! Malcolm trying to drop down to a knee but it’s Myles that’s pushing forward against the ropes forcing the break!
James Peters: Both of them separate as they begin to circle around the ring again, BUT IT’S MYLES WHO QUICKLY RUNS FORWARD AND GRABS MALCOLM BY THE ARM SENDING HIM INTO THE ROPES WITH A IRISH WHIP!

Myles quickly pushing away but this is already giving enough time for Malcolm to get up to his feet, ENZUIGIRI RIGHT TO THE FACE OF MYLES SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: How does one man screw up that bad? Oh well, it might just be because he’s Australian.
Rich Russillo: :skip: What does that mean?!
James Peters: Myles already up to all fours as Malcolm is quickly running to the ropes, BASEBALL SLIDE TO MYLES! BUT MYLES MANAGES TO USE THE ROPES TO PULL HIM OUT OF THE WAY AS MALCOLM STOPS HIMSELF BEFORE HE SLIDES OUT OF THE RING! Both using that momentum to get up to their feet as Malcolm leaps up, ATTEMPTING A DROPKICK! BUT IT’S MYLES THAT PUSHES THE LEG AWAY AS MALCOLM FALLS ONTO A KNEE! AND IT’S MYLES QUICKLY PLANTING MALCOLM DOWN WITH A QUICK DDT!

James Peters: Malcolm taking the time to drag Ahren to his corner as both of his teammates are looking for the tag into this match!

Ahren backed up against the corner as Darcy is running forward, AS SHE GOES FOR A KNEE RIGHT TO HIS GUT! But Ahren quickly moving out of the way as Darcy quickly collides with the corner! Ahren wasting no time grabbing her and taking control, AND IT’S AHREN WHO SLAMS DARCY RIGHT INTO THE RINGPOST SHOULDER FIRST!

Rich Russillo: Ahren is still pushing forward slowly getting back up to his feet as Darcy is ready for him, DARCY WITH A BULLDOG! BUT AHREN MANAGES TO KEEP HER UP AND PUSH HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! Ahren using this quickly grabbing her and running towards the corner, AND IT’S AHREN WHO SLAMS DARCY INTO THE RINGPOST ONCE AGAIN! DARCY IN A WORLD OF PAIN AS AHREN PUSHES HER DOWN AND IS QUICKLY GOING FOR A PIN ATTEMPT!
James Peters: BUT DARCY QUICKLY POWERS OUT BEFORE TOO LATE!
Persephone: She really fell for the same trick twice?! Wow the standards man.
James Peters: Ahren is not letting that phase him as he’s quickly back up to his feet and grabbing Darcy, AS HE DROPS HER DOWN TO A VERTICLE SUPLEX! Darcy quickly shooting up in pain as she falls down to a sitting position, BUT AHREN QUICKLY TRANSITIONING AS NOW HE’S SPINNING AROUND AND KICKING DARCY RIGHT IN THE BACK! Darcy stiffens up as she’s slowly beginning to rise up to her feet, BUT AHREN QUICKLY DROPPING DOWN AN AXE HANDLE! BUT DARCY WASTING NO TIME SENDING A PUNCH RIGHT TO HIS GUT ONCE MORE!

Ahren up to his feet as Drake is up as well, BUT AHREN CONNECTS WITH A STIFF KICK TO THE CHEST BEFORE DRAKE CAN DO ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS MATCHUP!

Malcolm quickly running to the ropes as Minerva is down on the ground, STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! BUT MINERVA GETS THE KNEES UP AS SHE AVOIDS THE ATTACK! Malcolm slowly getting up to his feet as Minerva is already up, MINERVA ROLLING THROUGH! VERTEBREAKER DROPS MALCOLM DOWN TO THE GROUND! MALCOLM IS OUT AS MINERVA IS GOING FOR THE PIN QUICKLY!

Rich Russillo: YEP! MALCOLM KICKS OUT OF THE VERTEBREAKER! Malcolm slowly getting back up, clearly stunned as Minerva brings Malcolm back up to his feet! MINERVA GOING FOR ANOTHER SPINEBUSTER! BUT MALCOLM REVERSES IT INTO A JUMPING DDT WHICH SENDS MINERVA DOWN TO THE GROUND! Malcolm now resorting to beginning to crawl to the corner as he’s looking for the tag now, Minerva slowly recovering so it might be too late in order to do so!

Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S MYLES THAT POWERS OUT BEFORE THE THREE COUNT CAN FINISH!
James Peters: Darcy waiting for Myles to get up now as he’s slowly beginning to recover and get up to his feet, I don’t think he knows a bit about what’s going on! DDD! BUT IT’S MYLES THAT DUCKS UNDER AND QUICKLY PUSHES DARCY INTO A CORNER! Myles quickly running forward, BUT DARCY MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AND THROW MYLES INTO THE CORNER IN RETURN!
Rich Russillo: BUT IT OPENS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR AHREN TO TAG IN AS HE DOES A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZUIGIRI RIGHT TO THE FACE OF DARCY SENDING HER BACK! Ahren entering back into this match as he grabs Darcy by the arm, AND PULLS HER RIGHT INTO A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND!

Ahren quickly Irish whipping Darcy again, AND RUNS FORWARD WITH ANOTHER KNEE RIGHT TO HER GUT!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Scenario plays back up as Malcolm Jones grabs the ropes slowly recovering as he’s up to his feet in a world of pain just as everyone else should be in this match. Drake King has managed to get Ahren Fournier off his tail as Darcy May Morgan is also slowly beginning to stir up to her feet coincidently right now. The Ref walks over and raises all three members of the Voltage WarGames Team high in the air in victory as they begin to celebrate around the ring in victory)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here are your winners, THE TEAM OF… DRAKE KING, DARCY MAY MORGAN, AND MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: WHAT A MAIN EVENT! It was clear that both teams wanted the momentum heading into Territorial Invasion to be fair for the same brand, and that they wanted to be taken seriously and I felt that this was the major way to do so! But at the end of the day, it was the WarGames team that managed to come out on top tonight!
James Peters: Take nothing away from the other team, both teams showed their teamwork heading into Territorial Invasion and let’s be fair no matter the result both would be teams that the people need to keep a close eye on if they want to win. But in the end only one team were to win and that honor goes to those three standing in the ring right now! And with that closes off Voltage for the night! I’m James Peters, along with Rich Russillo and Persephone, signing-
Rich Russillo: WAIT! XAVIER WILLIAMS, JUSTIN WINDGATE, JACK RIPLEY! TEAM SHOWDOWN HAS INFILTRATED VOLTAGE! ALL OF THEM ARE JUMPING THE VOLTAGE WARGAMES TEAM AS THEY BEGIN TO PUMMEL THE SHIT OUT OF THEM! SHOWDOWN HAS LEFT A BAD TASTE IN THEIR MOUTH AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WANT TO DO THE SAME ON VOLTAGE’S HOME TURF!
(As Xavier, Justin, and Jack manage to get the advantage on Team Voltage, which should be easy because of the toll put on all of them during this match not putting their best foot forward, too exasperated to do so of course, the camera pans over to the outside of the ring, showing the losers of the matchup. Ahren Fournier, Myles, and Minerva witness the action happening. They stand up, but instead of heading towards the ring, they begin to walk up the ramp, leaving the WarGames team in the dust)
James Peters: THE BRAWL IS CONTINUING! MALCOLM IS HOLDING HIS OWN AGAINST JACK, DRAKE WITH JUSTIN, DARCY WITH XAVIER! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO TO MALCOLM! SUPERKICK RIGHT TO THE JAW SENDS HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! CLASSIC ENDING TO DRAKE! REVERSE CUTTER CONNECTS! DEATH’S DANCE TO DARCY! STORM BREAKER DROPS DARCY DOWN TO THE GROUND! TEAM VOLTAGE IS LAID OUT!
(Beforelong the three members of the Brand Warfare match are standing on the stage. But it isn’t long before the rest of the members of the team, Terry Chambers & TLA, join them standing on the stage with their teammates. As it then shows Team Showdown standing tall as they focus their attention on the team across from them on the stage. It is the last shot seen as finally, the camera fades out, signaling the end)
