(EAW intro plays.)

(A highlight video recapping last week’s episode of Voltage airs.)

(As always, Voltage was one hell of a show. Ms. Extreme would arrive to arena only to find out that Dr. Bethany Blue had basically had her barred from entering due to medical reasons. Ms. Extreme would be furious, and it didn’t help when Captain Charisma would reluctantly side with the good doctor due to Bethany’s threats of taking legal action. The in-ring action would kick off with popular Elitist, The Woogieman, taking on Komatsu Ogawa. Ogawa would pick up the win and immediately call Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price to the ring. The girls, who had dubbed themselves ‘SASS’, would come out and all three would engage in a little back and forth. Komatsu would hit Sierra with a fireball and lay out Sarah, before leaving the ring with an evil grin on his face. Jalyn Garcia would redeem himself by having an incredible match against Zak Simmons. Jalyn would ultimately pin the Big Bak Bhampion in an incredible match. Charlie Marr would defeat Shortfuse PAKA to advance to the semi-finals of the King of Elite tournament, but it’s the post-match antics of Korey Gaines that really got the EAW Universe talking. He would drag PAKA’s brother-in-law, Provencal, out from the back and deliver an Okie Destroyer to Provencal off the stage and into a pile of equipment!)

(The recap continues.)

(Terry Chambers, who had been declared the number one contender to the EAW Championship earlier in the night, would team up with Joy Cassidy to take on the team of the champ, Andrea Valentine, and Consuela Rose Ava. Terry would pin Consuela to give his team the victory. Coming off the high of his heinous actions from earlier, Korey would take on Shawn Sturgis. This would be a great match that highlighted the talent of both men, but in the end, Korey would come out on top. As far as the match between Raven Roberts and Lars Grier goes, that match would end with a little bit of controversy. The number one contender to the Universal Women’s Championship, Sienna Jade, would show up to commentary unannounced. After awhile, Sienna would insert herself into the match and gain a little bit of revenge against Raven for what went down on Dynasty. Sienna would get the better of Raven and stand over Raven with the Universal Women’s Championship held high in the air. As far as the main event goes, the match between Dr. Bethany Blue and Rex McAllister was a classic up until the very end. Rex’s opponents for King of Elite, The ILLIONAIRES, would drop Rex while the referee was down, and that gave the good doctor a chance to slip back inside the ring and earn a count-out victory. Dr. Blue would find herself with a chance to advance in the tournament and potentially become the first woman to ever win King of Elite.)

(The highlight video ends and fades into a shot of the Megasport Sport Palace in Moscow. The Russian fans are on their feet cheering as “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami blasts through the speakers. Tonight in honor of Mother Russia, red, blue, and white pyro shoots off and the video tron is filled the beautiful aerial shots of the city. Rich Russillo and James Peters are behind the broadcast booth, as always, and tonight they wear custom T-shirts with the slogan #FreeCamille across them.)

James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Sunday. Night. Voltage!

Rich Russillo: As always, we have an amazing show lined up for you but before we get into that, we want to direct your attention to something that happened earlier today.

(Footage from earlier in the afternoon begins to play.)

(Dr. Bethany Blue is shown walking down the hallway. She is dressed in a pair of tan, wide-legged trousers, with a cream colored silk blouse tucked into the waistband, tan peep toe pumps, and her sandy blonde hair is down and flowing over her shoulders. The good doctor’s waist is decorated with the EAW Interwire Championship, and in her perfectly manicured hands, she carries a standard file folder. The name on the folder reads ‘Ava, Camille Jane’ and the doctor stops outside of Captain Charisma’s office. She knocks twice and then opens the door, a beautiful smile across her face.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: You wanted to see me, Ma-

???: YOU FUCKING BITCH!

(The voice of Ms. Extreme cuts Dr. Blue right off and the file folder falls from her hands as Ms. Extreme leaps up out of her chair and lunges for the doctor! Captain Charisma basically leaps over his desk and grabs Ms. Extreme by the waist right as her fist connects with Dr. Blue’s face! Dr. Blue falls back against the wall, more in shock than in actual pain, but she touches her hand to her mouth, checking for blood.)

Ms. Extreme: LET ME GO! I’M GOING TO KILL THIS BITCH!

(Ms. Extreme struggles against Captain Charisma, but he manages to overpower her and push her against the wall.)

Captain Charisma: ENOUGH!

Dr. Bethany Blue: DID YOU ASK ME TO COME HERE SO I COULD GET AMBUSHED BY THAT UNGRATEFUL ANIMAL?! I HAVE A MATCH WITH CHARLES MARR LATER ON AND SHE JUST PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE!

(Ms. Extreme pushes herself off the wall, and makes another beeline for Bethany, and once again, Captain Charisma is forced to restrain Ms. Extreme.)

Ms. Extreme: I WILL DO MORE THAN PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE AT KING OF ELITE BITCH!

(The good doctor blinks.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: King of Elite? What are you talking about?

(Ms. Extreme finally stops struggling against Captain Charisma and smiles.)

Ms. Extreme: Captain Charisma called you here to inform you that I signed a waiver allowing me to compete at King of Elite for the Interwire Championship.

Dr. Bethany Blue: But how will that be possible? I will be competing in the King of Elite finals. I realize that I am in peak physical condition, but you can not expect me to be double booked and take on two grueling matches.

Captain Charisma: You were always going to defend your championship against at King of Elite regardless of how far you progressed in the tournament. That’s the responsibility you take on when you become champion, and there have been plenty of Elitists who have pulled double duty before. Chris Elite just did it back at Road to Redemption. Not only did he compete in a TLC match for the Unified Tag Team Championships, but he also competed in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. Should you get past Charlie tonight, you will find yourself with a chance to defend your championship AND become the first ever female King of Elite winner.

Dr. Bethany Blue: B-b-but… that’s not right!

Ms. Extreme: What’s the matter, doc? Are you scared?

(Dr. Blue glares at Ms. Extreme.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: As a matter of fact, Camille, yes. I am scared. I’m scared that you waived away your rights as an Elitist to have this company protect you from getting harmed. That folder on the ground and all those papers contain your medical history and I was actually coming to bring them to Matt and show him that you need to be removed from the active roster for good. Your brain can not handle the stress of another concussion and you are not medically fit to be in the ring, or even in this building at the moment. It’s funny because after a rather interesting weekend here in Russia, I woke up this morning and had you on my mind. I had a feeling you would pull some kind of stunt like this and I had a legal order drawn up against you that is meant to keep you away from here tonight.

(Captain Charisma noticeably pales as the doctor pulls a folded up paper from her lab coat. She unfolds it and hands it to the Voltage Commissioner.)

Captain Charisma: Was this really necessary?

Dr. Bethany Blue: Absolutely! Just look at what’s happened since she’s been here. You have allowed Camille to basically end her own career by giving her an Interwire Championship match and even though it is my moral obligation as a doctor to protect lives, and not take them, I can’t promise that I will save Camille once I end her. Thankfully, King of Elite is still a few weeks away and there’s plenty of time for this decision to be reconsidered.

Ms. Extreme: Oh there’s nothing that can stop me from getting into that ring and beating the shit out of you. You have fucked with my career and that’s unforgivable, Bethany. If there’s one thing you don’t do to Ms. Extreme, it’s try and take away her right to wrestle. Whether I’m medically cleared by a real doctor, or by a FAKE one like you, I will be in Rome next month and I’m taking that championship from you.

(The doctor folds her arms across her chest and stares at Captain Charisma.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: I want her out before I call the police. If you read that paper, she’s not to be this close to me and it’s for her own good.

(Camille snatches the paper out of Captain Charisma’s hands and scans it.)

Ms. Extreme: You can’t be serious.

(The doctor has already started to pull her phone from her coat. Captain Charisma lets out a sigh and turns to Ms. Extreme.)

Captain Charisma: You got what you wanted, which is a match at King of Elite.

Ms. Extreme: …

(A smile crosses the doctor’s smug face.)

Captain Charisma: Don’t do anything to jeopardize that.

Ms. Extreme: Are you fucking kidding me? I have a right to be here. I work here!

Dr. Bethany Blue: You are signed to EAW as a professional wrestler, but at the moment, the medical personnel here have not cleared you to compete so you being here is not necessary. We might not be able to do anything about King of Elite, but we can keep you from being here right now for your own good. You need to leave.

Captain Charisma: I’ll sort this out, Camille. I promise.

(Captain Charisma starts to take Ms. Extreme’s arm and escort her from the office, but she jerks it away.)

Ms. Extreme: This is bullshit.

Captain Charisma: Now Camille, I might have granted you a shot at the Interwire Championship because you absolved EAW from any and all responsibility for whatever may happen, but I can take away the title shot as well. Nothing is set in stone around here and you know that. Go back to your hotel and trust me to deal with this.

(The good doctor chuckles hearing Ms. Extreme get reprimanded. Ms. Extreme’s face turns red and that’s when something clicks inside her mind. She hides her smile, squares her shoulders, and heads for the door. But before she leaves, she turns to face Dr. Blue.)

Ms. Extreme: King of Elite is going to be one wild fucking ride. Enjoy your time with that belt because it’s about to come to an end.

(Ms. Extreme strolls out of the office and slams the door behind her. She finally allows the smile to cross her face as she begins walking down the hall. The scene fades out.)

(The scene reopens to show Rich and James once again.)

James Peters: #FREECAMILLE

Rich Russillo: I can’t wait to see those two get their hands on one another at King of Elite.

James Peters: And I can’t wait to see what happens tonight on Voltage! We have a lot of amazing matches tonight which culminates with the semi-finals of the King of Elite tournament. Dr. Bethany Blue will take on the former EAW World Champion, Charlie Marr, in tonight’s main event.

Rich Russillo: We’re going to get right into the action once we return from commercial break. Lars Grier will be in action against Shaun Gascoigne!

James Peters: Poor fool.

Rich Russillo: :wow: We’ll be right back.

(Voltage fades to commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Delta Airlines featuring their new spokesman, The Woogieman!)

(Voltage returns from commercial and the Megasport Sport Palace has darkened. The video tron pops on.)

(The scene opens up to a picturesque white room. The face of Levi fills the screen as people know, Levi is the host of Buckeye25. As usual he has a knowing smile on his face, is dressed in a sharp black suit, and his hands are clasped together.)

Levi: Добрый вечер.

(Levi’s smile grows a bit bigger.)

Levi: Hello, dear viewers, and welcome to Buckeye25, Ohio’s finest news network! As always, I’m your host, Levi. We here in Ohio would like to welcome all of you in Moscow who are listening to us right now. In just a few minutes, my very good friend, Lars Grier, will descend down to the ring and take on the unfortunate soul known as Shaun Gascoigne. As telling as that match will be, we are going to look ahead ever so briefly. At King of Elite, Lars’ journey takes him straight to Consuela Rose Ava and that 24/7 Contract she holds in her hands. The reason Lars is chasing this contract is simple. He wants it, and as a result, it’s what we want for him. Lars is a man who has all the potential in the world and someone the Corvus is very pleased to support. We know Lars’ plan and have helped him set his goals. This time around in Elite Answers Wrestling will be much different for Lars.

(Levi pauses for a moment to allow his words to sink in, and the crowd itself seems rather captivated by the host’s voice.)

Levi: As a member of the Corvus, myself and my peers have taken Lars and helped him harness all that talent and that emotion he possesses. Lars knows that when it comes to fulfilling his prophecy, time and patience go hand-in-hand. It’s important not to hurry, to be calculated and cunning, and to set one goal at a time and work towards it. The 24/7 Contract that Consuela holds will be step one in getting Lars to where he needs to be. With that contract, Lars is able to open a door that will lead him to a realm of possibilities. Championship gold is in his future, and his path to that begins at King of Elite.

Levi: Tonight is nothing more and nothing less than a pitstop. Raven Roberts escaped from Lars last week due to the interference of a selfish individual with her own agenda, however the Corvus will not forget the words Raven spoke last week. In fact, the Corvus will not forget anything that’s been said about Lars. There have been whispers since he reappeared at Road to Redemption, and unfair statements made towards him. Life happens and people change, and sometimes it does indeed take a village. Lars is a better man now, a better wrestler, and more equipped to handle the curveballs that get tossed in his direction. The past needs to stay buried, and soon enough all the people who talk of it will find themselves buried along with it. The Corvus plans to make sure Lars stays the course because He will not be happy with anything less than that.

Levi: Tonight will be a showcase of what Lars is capable of. Gascoigne finds himself in the unenviable position of dealing with a Lars Grier who is on the brink of a transformation. The message needs to be sent and I would caution Consuela Rose Ava to stand back and watch closely. Tonight will not be a mercy killing. Tonight will be a full preview of what lies in wait for Ava come King of Elite. That contract will soon have a new home and be in the hands of someone who plans to use it. Thank you for listening.

(Levi’s smile is the last thing the viewers see before the screen goes completely black.)

(Stop. Click. Clitch. Clatch. Zbzzzt.)

(The video tron clicks on once again with nothing but static shown. Laughter is heard, and it’s quiet, but gradually it gets a little louder. That’s when a voice can be heard.)

???: ⱧɆ’₴ ฿₳₵₭. ₳₦Đ ⱧɆ’₴ ฿ⱤØɄ₲Ⱨ₮ Ⱨł₴ ₦Ɇ₩ ₮ØɎ₴ ₩ł₮Ⱨ Ⱨł₥.

(More laughter, and truthfully the audience is left with some confusion. The laughter gets quieter and quieter until nothing else can be heard.)

(After a moment, the lights cut back on and Rich and James are seen sitting there with puzzled expressions on their faces.)

James Peters: Uhhhh… that was odd.

Rich Russillo: There is just something about Lars Grier and the Corvus, and whatever the fuck else they’re about that just gives me the creeps, James.

James Peters: I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan either. I really feel sorry for Shaun Gascoigne. The poor guy was so petrified when he saw who is first opponent was, he didn’t even speak this week!

Rich Russillo: :mjgrin: Well apparently he is standing by Sofia Clarke right now. Let’s see what he has to say as he prepares to make his debut here on Voltage.

(The scene cuts backstage where Sofia is indeed standing by with the newcomer. However, Gascoigne is frozen at the moment, staring at the monitor where he had just watched the Buckeye25 news report.)

Sofia Clarke: Um, so in just a few moments, the man joining me right now will be making his way to the ring for his first ever match on Voltage. Shaun, can you let the EAW Universe know how excited you are right now?

(Shaun swallows the lump that has formed in his throat and looks at Sofia. He clearly has no words. It’s almost like he knows something bad is going to happen to him as soon as that bell rings to signal his debut match. Wordlessly, Shaun hangs his head and walks away from Sofia.)

Sofia Clarke: Welp. Back to you guys, I guess.

(The scene cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

( ‘Zion Dub’ by Silicon Drum hits through the Megasport Sport Palace P.A System, prompting Shaun Cascoigne to step onto the stage. With a mysterious, calmed posture in his stance, he scans the audience before marching down towards the ring. )

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Cambridge, England, weighing in at 234 pounds… SHAAAUUUUUUNNNN CASSSGOIGGGNNNEEEE!!!

James Peters: Shaun Casgoigne has been silent since he signed a contract with Elite Answers Wrestling, therefore we don’t know what his mindset is at heading into this match. He looks confident, he looks calm, but this young, grizzled veteran has an immense task ahead of him. He may have wrestled a Gorilla before, but he is about to step into the ring with a man equal to, or even more dangerous than what a Gorilla offers.

( While Gascoigne prepares himself in his respected corner, ‘CARION IS’ by LOVEcraft begins to play. Lars Grier rises from the Gorilla Position, imposing an enigmatic feel to the atmosphere as he slowly makes his way down to the ring )

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Toledo, Ohio, weighing in at 264 pounds… LAAAARRSSSSS GRIEEERR!!

Rich Russillo: Lars Grier made his return to the EAW ring a few weeks ago, getting a huge victory over Jake Smith, and he looks to continue that upward trajectory as he faces the newly-signed Shaun Casgoigne. Now, we’ve seen how aggressive and dangerous Grier has been. He has addressed his thoughts about his opponent being completely silent. Casgoigne’s game plan may be partially in his favour, but angering a man with the stature of Lars Grier, is the last thing you want in your first match in Elite Answers Wrestling.

( DING! DING! DING! )

James Peters: This match is officially underway and SHAUN GASCOIGNE GOES STORMING INTO GRIER! Lars is besieged against the corner as Gascoigne continues to offload a fusillade of punches onto him. He has been voiceless throughout the entire week, inciting an aura of mystery for this match, and it may pay off as he has the Carion in a tough spot.

Rich Russillo: I don’t think this is going to work in favour of Gascoigne as it appears the strikes are just angering Lars Grier. He grabs his arm and motions for an irish whip, but Lars slaps his wrist and shoves him away, sending Gascoigne to the other side of the ring. Gascoigne is stunned by the might of Lars Grier, which is a huge problem as GRIER COMES RUNNING INTO HIM!! CLOTHESLINE!

James Peters: Gascoigne ducks and bypasses the event of being annihilated as he turns around and lands a jumping gamengiri kick onto the temple of Grier! LARS IS UNFAZED BY THE KICK AS HE THROWS A CLOSED PUNCH TOWARDS GASCOIGNE!! Grier halts the punch mid-way, Gascoigne blocks as GRIER GOES AROUND AND CLUBS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH AN ENZU LARIAT!

James Peters: Lars Grier bamboozles him with a fake-out maneuver as he grabs his neck and brings him back up to his feet. He forces him into the corner by his neck, unrelentlessly slapping him as he PICKS HIM UP AND PLANTS HIM ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH A BIEL THROW!!! WHAT A THROW AS GASCOIGNE GOES SKIPPING OFF THE REMORSELESS TURNBUCKLES!

Rich Russillo: The dangerous Lars Grier showing how much of a threat he is to the future of the Voltage brand. Grier made everyone know that he’s back to tyrannize this land and this is just a fragment of what he can do to anyone willing to step in his way. He now plucks him off his feet, picking Gascoigne into a powerbomb as he sprints across the ring with him! HE THROWS HIM INTO THE AIR!! AND SENDS HIM SPLATTERING ONTO THE RAMP WITH A RELEASE POWERBOMB OVER THE TOP ROPE!!!

James Peters: He isn’t just here to win, he’s here to kill and Shaun Gascoigne is learning that first-hand. Grier with a menacing look planted on his face as his victim is defenceless on the outside. Gascoigne’s flaws and discrepancies have been exposed and Grier is going to decimate him. He slides beneath the bottom rope, grabs him once again into a powerbomb! AND PROJECTS HIM INTO THE RINGPOST!!

Rich Russillo: A POWERBOMB INTO THE RINGPOST!!! GASCOIGNE PAINFULLY SLIDES DOWN THE RINGPOST AS GRIER GOES TO PICK HIM UP ONCE AGAIN!!! HE HOISTS HIM UP INTO THE AIR!! DEADLIGHT DRIVE ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON!! GRIER PLANTS HIM ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING, THE UNFORGIVING PART OF THE RING MAY I SAY, WITH A HIGH-ANGLE URANAGI AND THAT MAY BE IT!

James Peters: Gascoigne is coughing out blood as he sits immobile to the discretion of Lars Grier as Grier exits in and out of the ring to reset the count. He has him completely helpless as he begins to dash around the squared circle. He is completing a lap around the four corners at ringside as his opponent has just made up to his feet! GRIER COMES AROUND THE CORNER AND TEARS RIGHT THROUGH SHAUN GASCOIGNE WITH A SPEAR!! GRIER ALMOST BREAKING HIM IN HALF WITH THE RAVENBEAK SPEAR AS HE GETS HIM BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE!

Rich Russillo: You know this is about to get real ugly when the referee has the latex gloves on. Gascoigne continues to have cold blood rushing out from his mouth as Grier refuses to let him be checked on by the referee. Grier uses the top of his boot to help him back up to his feet. The audience has been witnesses to sheer domination of Shaun Gascoigne, booing the man as he nonchalantly helps him back up to his feet.

James Peters: Grier lightly shrugs him away with his foot. Casgoigne is staggered, I don’t even think he knows what city he is in. Grier spits on his face and goes into the ropes. HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! RAVEEEENNNNNNNBEAAAAAKKKKK!!!! CASGOIGNE WAS FOLDED LIKE AN ACCORDION, TURNED INSIDE OUT, WHATEVER YOU MAY CALL IT, HE WAS JUST SPEARED OUT OF THE MILKY WAY UNIVERSE AS GRIER HOOKS BOTH LEGS!

ONE…. TWO… THREE!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( ‘CARION IS’ by LOVEcraft blasts through the speaker to thunderous, merciless boos from the Russian audience in attendance as Lars Grier confidently ascends to his feet, asking the referee to grab his wrist as he raises his both fists in the air with pleasure. The medical team staff begin to check up on Gascoigne’s internal injuries as Grier looks down onto him with an unimpressed face. )

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… LAAAAARRRSSS GRIERRR!!!

Rich Russillo: Lars Grier makes an emphatic statement to anyone and everyone back in the Voltage locker room. He disposes of Shaun Casgoigne in the heart of Russia, and he did it effortlessly. Here’s the thing, Lars could’ve just carried on with the devastating Ravenbeak spear in the inception of this match, but he wanted to make his opponent feel every second of it. He wanted his opponent to suffer and he got that accomplished here tonight.

( Grier slides back into the ring with a furious look on his face as he pushes the medical staff away and grabs Gascoigne )

James Peters: LARS GRIER IS NOT FINISHED WITH SHAUN CASGOIGNE AS HE VICIOUSLY RAINS DOWN ELBOWS ONTO THE CROWN OF HIS HEAD!! AT THIS POINT, GRIER IS ADDING INSULT TO INJURY!! GRIER LOOKING TO OPEN HIM UP EVEN MORE AS HE STAYS MOUNTED ONTO HIM. THE MEDICAL TEAM IS FAILING TO SUCCESSFULLY SEPARATE HIM AS GRIER IS A MAN ON A MISSION!

( Consuela Rose Ava comes sprinting down the ramp, accompanied by ear-deafening cheers as the crowd has been chanting her name throughout the match. As Ava entered the ring, Grier threw Gascoigne towards her and quickly exited the ring. )

Rich Russillo: Consuela Rose Ava makes the save, but I’m afraid the damage is already done! Grier has booked it into the EAW universe and this rivalry continues to brew more and more. Ava sending a clear message to Grier that he can be stopped, he can be neutralized, and when they clash, she will prove that.

(Consuela looks at the absolutely destroyed rookie and shakes her head, as Lars smirks and makes a throat slashing gesture.)

(Voltage fades to a recap of Friday Night Dynasty.)

(A brief highlight video plays showing the semi-finals of the Iconic Cup tournament that took place Friday night on Dynasty. Voltage’s own Joy Cassidy took on one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Constance Blevins, in an absolutely incredible match. Constance would win via pinfall and book her ticket to Doha. The other match featured two more Showdown Elitists in Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and the other Unified Tag Team Champion, Minerva. The match would be very back and forth, with either woman capable of ending it at any given time. In the end it was Minerva who pulled out the victory and she finds herself with a chance to do one better than she did last year.)

(Voltage fades back in and cuts backstage.)

(Jesse Barlow shoves menial EAW staff out of the way as he stomps down the corridor filled with doors leading to various Elitist locker rooms. The determination on Barlow’s face looks almost like anger. Though, if someone looks closely, there’s a hint of desperation in those eyes as well. Jesse Barlow is on a mission.)

Jesse Barlow: Where is he?

(Barlow stops in front of a couple of different doors until he actually finds the one he’s looking for. The one marked with a stylized nameplate that’s a pair of expensive sunglasses crookedly hanging off the end of the name: WOOGIEMAN. Barlow doesn’t hesitate for even a moment and just throws open the door!)

Jesse Barlow: Woogie!

(Barlow barges into the locker room… but there’s no sign of The Woogieman. There are, however, signs of The Woogieman. The Woogieman’s massive portable wardrobe is wide open and filled to the brim with wildly styled and expensive silk shirts that could only fit The Woogieman. There’s even a sign hanging on the outside of the wardrobe rack that says: ‘Big Woogie Style’.)

Jesse Barlow: Where. Is. He?

(Barlow’s anger is rising and he turns towards the wardrobe, reaching out to grab it… but instead, he just drops his hands back to his side. Destroying the Woogie Wardrobe wouldn’t make this any easier. Or bring The Woogieman too him. Besides, those are some pretty nice shirts. Frustrated, Jesse Barlow turns to leave and a look of realization crosses his face! There’s another place to check!)

Jesse Barlow: Move!

(Barlow’s scream at the EAW stagehand sends the poor event staffer scrambling to get out of the way. Normally, Barlow would relish the fear he’s put into people that don’t matter but he’s on a mission right now. His driven footsteps take him down the hall and around the corner… right up to the catering tables.)

Jesse Barlow: … seriously?

(Once again, there’s no sign of The Woogieman. Instead, there are a handful of nobodies setting up for the latest meal. The meal prep staff don’t even look up from their duty… of setting up an entire table of food specifically labeled as: The Woogie Buffet. This sign too bears the crooked sunglasses imagery.)

(Barlow’s frustration has him stomping away from catering loud enough to get some looks but as he turns the corner again, the meal prep staff go right back to doing their duty.)

Jesse Barlow: Where the hell is this guy?

(Jesse Barlow doesn’t give up. He’s hit all the spots that he could think of already and has come up with nothing. As he takes to the corridors again, this time he just barges into whatever door that’s closed. He hits up a closet and comes up with nothing. He barges into the make-up room but there’s nobody in there either. He even checks the on-site medical facilities and comes up empty once again. It’s about at this moment that he catches sight of a clock out of the corner of his eye and sighs.)

Jesse Barlow: Fuck it.

(Barlow heads in the direction of the guerrilla area. He’s running out of time to find The Woogieman because he’s got a match up next. He appears to be as frustrated as he can possibly be at this point and as he wanders up to his mark… Hannah Marin is right there waiting for him.)

Hannah Marin: Anything?

Jesse Barlow: He’s nowhere in the building. He can’t be. I’ve looked everywhere. He is officially The Invisible Woogieman.

(Hannah places an arm around Barlow.)

Hannah Marin: Hey. It’s going to be fine. We’ll find him.

Jesse Barlow: I know. He can’t hide forever.

Hannah Marin: Exactly. But for now…

(Hannah Marin steps around to the front of Barlow and places both hands on his shoulders. She’s trying to calm him down, obviously and Barlow locks eyes with her. It takes him a moment but he brings his hands up to rest on her shoulders as well.)

Hannah Marin: We have a match to win.

Jesse Barlow: Not gonna’ be a problem. It’s PAKA.

Hannah Marin: That’s what I like to hear but you’re going to need to stay focused, alright? I know you want to find The Woogieman…

Jesse Barlow: Need. Need to find.

Hannah Marin: Need to find The Woogieman. And we will. Together. But we don’t need you distracted and letting this easy win slip through your fingers.

Jesse Barlow: That’s why I have you.

Hannah Marin: That’s why you have me.

(As Barlow and Hannah share this moment of match preparation bliss, the sudden arrival of succulent sounds can be heard. It’s loud enough that both Hannah and Jesse are pulled out of their focus on each other to turn and look…)

(It’s The Woogieman. And he’s standing there in all of his Woogieful Glory… eating a rib. Which, obviously, is from his personal buffet. Jesse lets go of Hannah and whirls completely around to confront The Woogieman.)

Jesse Barlow: What the hell, Woogie?! Where have you–

(The Woogieman holds his hand up, right in the face of Jesse Barlow. Barlow is so stunned by this action that he doesn’t even know how to react.)

The Woogieman: Not while The Woogieman is eating.

(The Woogieman finishes consuming that rib just as another one of those menial EAW event staffers wanders by. The Woogieman’s presence alone stops him in his tracks. The Woogieman drops the rib bone on top of the pile of equipment he’s carrying and then proceeds to wipe his hand off on the staffer’s shirt.)

(Both Jesse and Hannah are just staring until The Woogieman finally turns his attention back towards them both.)

The Woogieman: The Woogieman will hear you now.

Jesse Barlow: You’re goddamn right you’ll hear me now! I’ve been all over this arena looking for you! Where the hell have you been hiding?!

The Woogieman: Hiding? The Woogieman hides from no one! Especially, you. The Woogieman is a very busy Woogie that was attending to some business. Now, the Woogieman will ask you one more time… what can The Woogieman do for you?

(Jesse Barlow looks like he’s about to jump all over The Woogieman and unload his frustrations with a flurry of furious fists but a hand from Hannah Marin on his shoulder tames the savage beast within. At least for the moment.)

Jesse Barlow: I want answers, Woogie! Last week, you told her you knew something about my birth parents. Let’s hear it.

The Woogieman: Slow down. The Woogieman does indeed know a great deal about you, your past and yes, even your parents. In fact, The Woogieman can safely say that he knows more about you than you do yourself. And it is only by The Woogieman’s grace and generosity that he’s even giving you a chance to learn about your parents.

(Barlow’s blood is boiling but Hannah’s hand on his shoulder is keeping him steady.)

The Woogieman: The Woogieman is more than willing to tell you everything he knows. But, as The Woogieman has made very clear, time-and-time-and-time again, The Woogieman is a businessman. And any businessman worth his multi-million dollar salt knows that everything has a price.

Jesse Barlow: Alright, enough. What the hell do you want?

(The Woogieman smiles.)

The Woogieman: Her. The Woogieman wants Hannah Marin.

(The Woogieman’s finger points right past Jesse Barlow and right at Hannah Marin. She almost blushes but manages to look incredulous as Jesse Barlow’s head turns to look at her. Now he’s pissed and turns right back to The Woogieman.)

Jesse Barlow: Absolutely. Fucking. Not. Hannah is mine. My pupil. She’s off-limits. So I suggest you think of something else unless you’d prefer my counter-offer of kicking the shit out of you.

(Hannah Marin pulls Barlow away from The Woogieman so that she can stand between the two of them.)

Hannah Marin: I’ll do it.

Jesse Barlow: What? Hannah–

(Hannah turns around to look at Jesse.)

Hannah Marin: For you, Jesse, I will do this. I will do anything for you. And this is important. This is about your family. You may never get an opportunity like this again.

(The Woogieman holds up a single finger.)

The Woogieman: The Woogieman can assure you, you won’t.

(That elicits a swift glare from Hannah towards Woogie before she focuses his attention on Barlow again.)

Jesse Barlow: I can’t let you do this.

(Hannah Marin reaches out to place a hand on Barlow’s cheek.)

Hannah Marin: It’s already done.

(There’s a long moment of reluctant hesitation before Jesse Barlow finally nods, his consent given to allow the trade to commence.)

The Woogieman: The Woogieman thought you’d see it his way.

(Hannah Marin steps back to link her arm with The Woogieman’s as The Woogieman holds out an envelope towards Barlow. Barlow snatches it.)

The Woogieman: It was a pleasure doing business with me.

(With the smuggest grin, The Woogieman escorts Hannah Marin past Jesse Barlow. Barlow watches The Woogieman walk away with Hannah, his gaze lingering as they turn the corner. Jesse Barlow looks down at the envelope in his hands and rips it open.)

(As Jesse studies the contents of the envelope, Voltage fades to a quick promotional add for Clash of Kingdoms.)

(A promotional ad for Clash of Kingdoms airs highlighting the on-going feud between Sienna Jade and Raven Roberts over the Universal Women’s Championship. The historic championship match is set for Clash of Kingdoms, which you can see February 15th, 2020 on Free-Per-View from the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, Qatar!)

(Voltage returns and shows Korey Gaines settling into the broadcast booth next to James. He shoots a glare over at Rich.)

Rich Russillo: :mjgrin: hi

(Korey rolls his eyes and the camera cuts to Bella.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…

(‘The Path’ by Senses Fail kicks up through the arena’s sound system.)

Bella Braxton: Weighing in at 210 lbs… from Hoboken, New Jersey… “The Virtuous” JEEESSSSSSEEEEEEEEE BAAAAAAARRRRRLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!

(Jesse Barlow steps out onto the stage to a chorus of unimpressed booing from the crowd. They don’t particularly like this one.)

James Peters: Well, I bet I know who you’re rooting for in this match, Korey.

Korey Gaines: Who wouldn’t be on Barlow’s side in such a one-sided match up?

James Peters: Thought so.

(Jesse Barlow’s smug grin isn’t as smug as it usually is but still he manages to make his way down to the ring and hops up onto the apron. He sneers back at the crowd that doesn’t understand just how Virtuous he truly is and hops over the top rope to the inside. He does a single lap around the ring and moves off to a corner as his music fades.

(Bella Braxton lines her microphone back up.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent…

Korey Gaines: BOOOOOOOO!

(Breakin’ Outta’ Hell by Airbourne explodes from the system and the crowd goes bonkers. Which almost immediately gets on Korey Gaines’ nerves. His eye-rolling is of an epic level.)

Bella Braxton: Weighing in at… 225 lbs…

Korey Gaines: Fat Ass!

Bella Braxton: From The Arm Bar… he is one-half of the Arch-Enemies… SHOOORRRRRRRRTFUSE PAAAAAAKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Korey Gaines: BOOOOOOOOOOO!

(Shortfuse PAKA comes out onto the stage and soaks in the support he’s getting from the crowd in this match. He seems to be looking past Barlow and at the commentator’s table as he makes his way down to the ring. He ignores outstretched hands as he takes the metal stairs up and onto the apron.)

Rich Russillo: Would you like to share with the class your thoughts on Shortfuse PAKA taking home the W in this match?

Korey Gaines: Fuck Shortfuse PAKA.

Rich Russillo: Couldn’t have said it better myself.

James Peters: You two are a piece of work.

(PAKA’s not even looking at Jesse Barlow after he climbs through the ropes and into the ring. PAKA immediately heads for the opposite ropes to lean over them and point at Korey Gaines. Korey, to his credit, just holds up his hands in innocence. PAKA’s music fades away and…)

(DING DING DING!)

Korey Gaines: And here comes this bullshit! Jesse Barlow’s about to kick PUNKA’s ass!

Rich Russillo: Are you going to call him that the whole match?

Korey Gaines: I call it as I see it, Rich.

Rich Russillo: I like this guy.

James Peters: You would. Barlow starting things off here with a swift lariat that takes PAKA off his feet. PAKA may have been a little off his game here due to no fault of his own! Barlow taking advantage early on in this match.

Korey Gaines: As if it’s not hard to have an advantage over this chunky bastard.

Rich Russillo: Good point.

James Peters: That’s not even a point!

Korey Gaines: Hater.

Rich Russillo: Yeah, don’t be a hater, JP. Shortfuse PAKA back on his feet now and the two are circling each other. Barlow feints a strike but PAKA doesn’t fall for it. Barlow gets a crispy palm strike right to the face for his troubles. Barlow stumbles backward but PAKA doesn’t give him any time to breathe, tackling Barlow down to the mat and laying into the side of his head with a series of brutal open palm strikes.

Korey Gaines: This chunk-of-a-bitch better be glad it’s not me in there. There’s no way he’d be getting the drop on me like that. You can hear him coming a mile away…

James Peters: Jesse Barlow fighting to get himself free of PAKA’s sudden assault and shoves PAKA off him. Barlow rolls to the side of the ring and pulls himself up by the ropes, using them and the referee to get some time to catch his breath. I think he’s going to end up with a few of those moments tonight considering how much PAKA keeps looking over here at us and our special guest.

Korey Gaines: Aw, you think I’m special. I’m flattered.

James Peters: Somebody tell him what special means.

Rich Russillo: HA!

Korey Gaines: I’mma’ let that slide because Jesse Barlow just dropkicked PAKA in the face and that amuses me.

Rich Russillo: Same.

Korey Gaines: Fat Ass is back on his feet but Jesse Barlow is right there to send a boot to his midsection. PAKA doubles over in well-deserved pain and Jesse Barlow drops an elbow to the back of PAKA’s empty skull and PAKA hits the mart hard.

Rich Russillo: Barlow wasting no time and just putting the boots to PAKA. There’s anger in Barlow’s eyes as he stomps away at Shortfuse PAKA. Emotions are higher than usual tonight for a variety of reasons. Barlow just lost Hannah Marin for god knows how long.

James Peters: In exchange for finding out about his birth parents.

Korey Gaines: And, worst of all, Shortfuse PAKA is wrestling. If that doesn’t piss off the EAW Universe, I don’t know what will.

James Peters; The official breaking up Barlow’s stomping spree to give PAKA a chance to breathe this time around. Barlow backs off and PAKA gets up to his feet. PAKA’s barely up and here comes Barlow again! PAKA grabs Barlow and sends him airborne with a belly-to-belly throw that sees Barlow smacking viciously into the turnbuckle! Barlow bounces right back out of the corner, stumbling back towards the center of the ring…

Rich Russillo: SHOTGUN DROPKICK!

Korey Gaines: CHEAP SHOT!

Rich Russillo: PAKA sends Barlow sailing backward into the corner with a picture-perfect shotgun dropkick that rattles the damn ring chains. Barlow crumples into the corner and PAKA rising back up to his feet. PAKA slaps his arm across his chest and now he’s staring down my new and slightly better broadcast partner…

James Peters: HEY!

Rich Russillo: … Korey Gaines.

Korey Gaines: PAKA can stare at me all he wants but that’s not going to win him this match. Which, if I were him, I’d be focusing on. Especially, since Barlow is standing up in the corner now. Barlow rushes PAKA and has him hooked for a GERMAN SUPL–

James Peters: NO! PAKA catches Barlow in the face with a stiff elbow! And another one! Barlow’s forced to break his grip! PAKA spins around and Barlow’s right there! Barlow swings at PAKA but PAKKA ducks under it! Barlow turns to try again but PAKA ducks this one as well! PAKA grabs Barlow… SPINEBUSTER! Right dead center of the ring! And PAKA with the quick cover.

ONNNE!

Korey Gaines: Jesse Barlow with the perfect kick out and the match continues.

Rich Russillo: Is there even such thing as a perfect kick out?

Korey Gaines: Yup. Gaines’ Dictionary describes the Perfect Kickout as kicking out of any of Shortfuse PAKA’s weak-ass moves.

Rich Russillo: Well played.

James Peters: Since I’m the only one paying attention to the actual match… Barlow’s back on his feet and he has PAKA in a headlock now. PAKA’s trying to get free but Barlow’s putting the pressure on. A quick elbow to the back of PAKA’s neck as Barlow releases the hold. Barlow with a kick to the knee of Shortfuse PAKA and PAKA drops to the mat in a bad place. Barlow steps around the front, locks PAKA up and drops the Shortfuse with a DDT!

Korey Gaines: HA! That had to hurt.

Rich Russillo: I dunno. I’ve seen PAKA live through much worse. And Barlow doesn’t even go for the cover! Looks like Barlow’s got some more to say to PAKA in this match. Barlow pulls PAKA up by the head and sends him over his shoulder with a violent snapmare! Barlow’s quick to follow up with a strong dropkick to the back of PAKA’s head! PAKA is sent sprawling forward onto the mat!

Korey Gaines: Beautifully done! Magnifique!

James Peters: Shortfuse PAKA rolls over to the rope and uses them to get himself back up to his feet. PAKA hangs himself over the top rope, trying to get his bearings it looks like. Jesse Barlow’s looking to capitalize. Barlow runs at PAKA and leaps– but PAKA drops back down to the mat and Jesse Barlow sails right through the ropes and to the outside! RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! Barlow’s down!

Rich Russillo: And there goes Korey! He’s… running to Barlow’s aid? Wait a minute, folks, I coulda’ swore Korey Gaines was going to take this opportunity to get the drop on Shortfuse PAKA but let me be the first to tell you that I’m wrong.

James Peters: That’s a first.

Rich Russillo: Correct. I’ve never actually been wrong before.

James Peters: That’s not what I meant–

Rich Russillo: KOREY Gaines is helping Jesse Barlow back to his feet. Korey tries to dust off Barlow’s back but a glare from Barlow has him backing off. Korey, you better sit back down over here! Barlow’s in a mood! PAKA exchanging glares with Korey as he backs away from the ropes to give Barlow the chance to get back inside.

Korey Gaines: Sorry I left you guys hanging for a sec there. I just wanted to make sure Barlow was alright. Can’t have one of our top Elitists getting injured because of PAKA’s carelessness.

James Peters: You mean his ring intellect and match strategy?

Korey Gaines: You say tomato and I say tomah- shut the fuck up.

Rich Russillo: Ha! Gottem.

James Peters: Jesse Barlow and Shortfuse PAKA meeting in the center of the ring now and PAKA looks to be taking control. PAKA catches Barlow with a clothesline and then follows up with a crushing belly flop just to knock the wind out of Barlow’s sails. PAKA pulls Barlow up by the hair and hoists him up! POWERBOMB! Barlow’s body bounces off the mat and PAKA is right there with a cover!

ONNNE!

TWWWOOOOO!

Korey Gaines: PERFECT KICKOUT AGAIN!

Rich Russillo: Shortfuse PAKA looking frustrated as Barlow rolls away to get some room. The two competitors are both back on their feet but PAKA’s back is to Barlow! Barlow takes the fight out of the Shortfuse with a sudden chop block! PAKA hits the mat and Barlow runs for the ropes. He rebounds off and catches PAKA as he’s getting to his knees…

Korey Gaines: CURB STOMP! YEAH, BREAK IS FUCKING FACE!

James Peters: Shortfuse PAKA on the receiving end of a nasty curb stomp there! He may not be getting up from that one. Barlow flips PAKA over, hooks the leg and the official is right there to count this one up!

Korey Gaines: That’s a wrap on this one.

ONNNNE!

Korey Gaines: Bag ‘im and tag ‘im.

TWWWOOOOOO!

Korey Gaines: Ring the bell!

THHRREEEEEEEEEEEE–

James Peters: PAKA GOT THE SHOULDER UP! PAKA GOT THE SHOULDER UP! WITH A FUCKING MILISECOND TO SPARE!

Korey Gaines: …

Rich Russillo: Shortfuse PAKA surviving on spite alone and Jesse Barlow can’t believe this match is still going. And it looks like Korey Gaines can’t either!

Korey Gaines: Fuck this. I’m done.

Rich Russillo: And there goes Gaines! Ladies and gentlemen, Korey’s taken off his headset and it looks like he’s leaving. He can’t watch this anymore. But JP and I aren’t going anywhere. Especially now that PAKA has regained control in this match!

James Peters: Oh, you’re Team PAKA now?

Rich Russillo: I’m Team Voltage.

James Peters: Facts.

James Peters & Rich Russillo: #VoltageBetter

Rich Russillo: PAKA looks like he’s found a third or fourth wind! Every single one of those knife-edge chops striking Barlow in the throat and backing him up towards the corner. PAKA drops Barlow into the corner with a pair of shoulder thrusts and backs off. PAKA runs to the opposite corner and takes off in Barlow’s direction! Shortfuse PAKA going for that infamous Hip Attack!

James Peters: WAIT KOREY GAINES IS IN THE RING! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK TO SHORTFUSE PAKA!

Rich Russillo: That’s it! The official is calling for the bell!

(DING DING DING!)

Rich Russillo: And this one’s going to end in a disqualification!

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY DISQUALIFICATION… SHORTFUSE PAKA!!!

James Peters: Korey Gaines has ruined PAKA’s night once again!

Rich Russillo: And his face. Don’t forget his face.

James Peters: The bad blood between Korey Gaines and Shortfuse PAKA is becoming harder and harder to watch.

Rich Russillo: I’m loving it.

(Korey has rolled out of the ring and is retreating up the ramp, while Shortfuse PAKA is being helped up by the referee.)

(Voltage fades to the backstage area where Dr. Blue is seen with Nurse Goldstein. Nurse Goldstein looks frantic and Dr. Blue is looking frazzled.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Are you sure you heard correctly?!

Nurse Goldstein: YES! The patient you gave the circumcision to last week has an infection and they say it isn’t looking good. They may not be able to save his penis. Your mother has agreed to look him over and perform whatever surgery is necessary.

(Dr. Blue can’t believe this. This is the worst thing that could have possibly happened at the worst possible time. She throws her hands.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Alright, go. Go and help my mother. Mother and the patient need you more than I do at the moment, and who knows when the next flight leaves? I can handle things tonight. In fact, I think it might be for the best if I do this on my own.

(Nurse Goldstein takes a deep breath.)

Nurse Goldstein: Are you sure, Dr. Blue?

(Dr. Blue hesitates, thinking of Jordie Marr at ringside, but she finally puts on a brave face and nods.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: I’m sure. Just make sure you and Mother save that poor man’s penis.

(Nurse Goldstein nods and rushes off, heading towards the lockerroom to grab her stuff to leave. The Interwire Champion takes a deep breath and calms her nerves, knowing that tonight, everything will rest squarely on her shoulders.)

(Voltage fades to commercial break.)

(Commercial break for State Farm insurance featuring Jake, Jake, and Jake. Jake from State Farm, Jake Mercer, and Jake Smith all discuss the benefits of State Farm insurance, hair care products, and of course what State Farm Jake is wearing… khakis.)

(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes plays up to cheers as Consuela Rose Ava makes her way out to the stage. She throws one arm in the air with a smile before looking around and heading to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… residing in Los Angeles, California… weighing in at 120 pounds… THE PERFECTIONIST… CONSUELA ROSE AVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Last time we saw Consuela she along with Andrea Valentine put up a losing effort against Terry Chambers and Joy Cassidy. But that’s far from the intentions in her head going into this match.

James Peters: She plans to redeem herself in this matchup. Whilst like last time it’s going to be a challenge, it’s something Consuela expects, and accepts. She’s stated she’s going to give her best and it’s known that its always led her to an accomplishment in the end, and believe me that is something that is not out of option tonight.

(Consuela enters the ring and goes to the top rope. She looks around with a smile before jumping off and beginning to warm up as “We Appreciate Power” fades out. ‘Land of The Innocent’ by Feathers then plays up to more cheers as Sarah Price makes her way out to the stage being closely followed by Sierra Bradford. They exchange a fist bump as they make their way to the ring interacting with the fans.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… accompanied by Sierra Bradford… from London, United Kingdom… weighing in at 110 pounds… THE GUARDIAN ANGEL… SARAH PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Sarah’s going into this match with a lot to prove. She wants to climb the ranks and make herself known and if she beats Consuela tonight consider that starting.

James Peters: That would be great if Sarah was able to beat Consuela and I’m sure she’d want nothing more than that. This is going to be a hard hitting match for sure, both of these competitors want redemption and only one is going to get it.

(Sarah enters the ring as Sierra stays at ringside. She goes to the top rope as she points around at the crowd members with a bright smile. Before jumping off and going to her corner as ‘Land of The Innocent’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: Here we go as this sure to be hard hitting match is underway. Consuela and Sarah lock up as Consuela already slowly starts to push Sarah to the ropes. Sarah forced back as Consuela pushes off the ropes causing Sarah to rebound off one to the other. Consuela slides under Sarah before going to a leapfrog. CONSUELA WITH A DROPKICK TAKES SARAH OUT! This match just went from 0 to 100 real quick as Sarah pulls herself up. Consuela goes for a clothesline but Sarah ducks under grabbing the arm of Consuela and bringing her down for an armbar! Sarah twisting the arm as Consuela quickly grabs the ropes forcing a rope break! Sarah and Consuela are up once more as Consuela swings a punch! But Sarah ducks it as Consuela turns around once more. SARAH WITH A JAWBREAKER!

James Peters: Consuela falling flat to the ground as she pulls herself up once more. Sarah runs at Consuela at full speed. But Consuela sending Sarah over the ropes and onto the apron! But Sarah quickly getting up and taking Consuela back with a rope assisted enziguri! Consuela moves back as Sarah sets her up. SPRINGBOARD KNEE RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF CONSUELA’S FACE TAKES HER DOWN! Consuela pulling herself up to a knee as Sarah bounces off the ropes again. SARAH LEAPING RIGHT INTO CONSUELA WITH ANOTHER KNEE! Sarah is a burst of energy in this match and it seems Consuela is finding it hard to keep up with her. Consuela pulling herself up once more as Sarah runs at her again. But Consuela sending her into the corner with a irish whip as she runs towards her. CONSUELA RAMMING RIGHT INTO THE GUT OF SARAH!

Rich Russillo: Sarah sent down to a sitting position as Consuela runs to the other corner and back. CORNER DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE FACE OF SARAH! Consuela pulling her out of the corner before Sarah can react and lifting her off her feet. SIDESLAM BACKBREAKER TAKES SARAH DOWN! Sarah rolling around in pain as Consuela takes her up once more and sends her into the ropes. But Sarah managing to hold onto the ropes as Consuela wastes no time running at her! But Sarah with an elbow right ro Consuela’s face! Consuela running at Sarah once more but Sarah quickly moves out of the way and takes Consuela down as she’s trapped between the ropes with a drop toe hold! Sarah runs to the ropes and back. TIGER FEINT KICK RIGHT TO CONSUELA!

James Peters: Sarah enters back into the ring as she brings Consuela up to a knee. But Consuela with a punch right to the gut of Sarah pushing her back! Consuela up to her feet as Sarah not letting the opportunity pass running at her. CONSUELA WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK SENDING SARAH DOWN! Sarah beginning to crawl up quickly as Consuela pulls her in. SPANISH FLY! NO! Sarah with an elbow before Consuela can lift off! Consuela stumbles back as Sarah runs at her quickly. PLOT TWIST! BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS AS CONSUELA FALLS AND SARAH GOES FOR A PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOO-

Rich Russillo: CONSUELA KICKS OUT! Sarah not wasting any time for reminiscence as she pulls herself up to her feet. Consuela starting to do so as well as she grabs the middle turnbuckle managing to slowly bring herself up. Sarah breaking into a run running at Consuela. CORNER CLOTHESLINE! NO!

Sarah trying to roll herself to her feet but Consuela quickly enters the ring and pulls her up. BACKBREAKER RIGHT TO SARAH! But Consuela keeping Sarah in position I think she’s looking for another one. ANOTHER BACKBREAKER TO SARAH!

Rich Russillo: Consuela has taken control of this match so far as Sarah slowly begins to pull herself up. The will of Sarah goes a long way as she quickly gets to her feet as Consuela waits for her. Consuela running towards Sarah as she grabs her! But Sarah ducking and running towards the ropes! PLOT TWIST! NO! Consuela ducks the bicycle knee as she turns around and grabs Sarah! Consuela trying to lock in the Suela Lock but Sarah quickly escaped before immediate danger! Consuela up now as Sarah is right behind her. SARAH WITH A DROPKICK TAKING CONSUELA DOWN ONCE MORE!

Consuela grabbing at her knee as Sarah slowly starts to get up but she realizes too late as she falls right into Consuela! LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE! THE RUNNING KNEE CONNECTS RIGHT ON THE SKULL KNOCKING SARAH OUT AS CONSUELA GOES FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘We Appreciate Power’ plays up as Consuela Rose Ava gets to her feet. She falls into a corner taking a breath before beginning to celebrate. Sierra Bradford rolls into the ring to help Sarah Price up. Consuela walks up to them and looks at them for a moment before shaking hands with both of them in a show of respect. SASS takes their leave as Consuela continues to celebrate)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner, CONSUELA ROSE AVA!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: What a great match we just witnessed here tonight. Sarah gave it her all and pushed Consuela to the limit. But in the end the will of Consuela Rose Ava got above all as she managed to pull out the win tonight.

James Peters: This definitely entails something in the future for both of these competitors either way. Consuela has a boost going into her 24/7 Contract match whilst Sarah Price has certainly solidified herself as someone to remember in EAW. So kudos to both of these competitors and congrats Consuela!

(Consuela leaves the ring but as she does so the lights go out. Everyone is confused as the arena is left pitch black. Then the lights begin to flicker on and off as the tron screen begins to follow as it turns on. And for a moment, the mysterious figure Carion is seen on the video tron. The lights then come back on leaving everyone confused before the crowd begins to scream.)

James Peters: LARS! LARS GRIER ATTACKS CONSUELA! LARS TAKES CONSUELA DOWN AND BEATS HER WITH CLOSED FIST PUNCHES ON THE CONCRETE! LARS IS MERCILESS IN HIS ATTACKS AS CONSUELA IS HELPLESS!

Rich Russillo: CONSUELA MANAGING TO PUSH AWAY AS SHE’S TRYING TO ESCAPE OVER THE BARRICADE BUT THERE’S NO ESCAPING LARS! LARS RUNS OVER TO CONSUELA! RAVENBEAK THROUGH THE BARRICADE! OH MY GOD! LARS GRIER HAS MADE HIMSELF KNOWN TONIGHT!

(The last shot is of Lars looking down at Consuela and slightly shaking his head with a disappointed face. He looks up with a stern look as the last shot is of Consuela knocked out on the ground as the camera fades to into a commercial break.)

(Commercial break for TGI Fridays line of junk food snacks. The Buffalo Ranch party bites are pretty damn good.)

(Voltage fades back in and cuts to inside the lockerroom belonging to the soon-to-be married couple, Fire & Ice. Raven is sitting in a chair watching as Rex paces the lockerroom. Despite being battered on Dynasty at the hands of Sienna Jade and Impact, Raven wears a little smile on her face as she watches Rex. She knows that tensions are high right now, but she can’t help but admire her future husband and the thought and effort he put into everything. After a moment, Rex stops pacing and looks down at Raven.)

Raven Roberts (slight amused): Are you done now? You were about to wear a hole in the carpet.

(A frustrated sigh escapes from Rex and he rakes a hand through his hair.)

Rex McAllister: I’m just so pissed, Ray.

(It was rare that someone as stoic and calm as Rex got pissed off. Both members of Fire & Ice had a lot going on with their singles careers, and their career together as a tag team was finally giving them a chance to gain a shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships.)

Raven Roberts: I know you are, and you have a right to be. If it hadn’t been The ILLIONAIRES you would be in the semi-finals tonight instead of on the outside looking in. But I know you and I know what you’re about, and I know that you’re going to get back into the EAW Championship picture.

Rex McAllister: My goal hasn’t changed. I want that third world championship and I want my Pain for Pride moment. But I can’t help but feel like it’s further away than ever before. Very few Elitists get a chance to headline Pain for Pride once, but this Elitist has done it twice in a row. I was so close to redeeming myself last year but Impact…

(Rex cut himself off as he saw Raven’s eyes narrow at the mention of Impact’s name.)

Rex McAllister: Well we know what happened. It’s just been one misstep after another, and losing in the fashion I did last week was a bitter pill to swallow.

(Raven gets up and gingerly makes her way over to Rex. Rex immediately pulls her into his arms and kisses the top of her head. Raven presses her face into his chest and just holds him, enjoying his warmth, and just being in his arms. After a moment she finally pulls away and looks up into his eyes.)

Raven Roberts: The ILLIONAIRES will regret their actions, trust me. We both know what needs to be done come King of Elite. Whatever else is going on in our careers ceases to exist once we finally step into the ring with them. I have been waiting to get my hands on them since Wicked Games anyway. As far as everything else goes, Rex, you are the best wrestler in the world and you have always been able to overcome whatever obstacle gets placed in your path. This is no different, and without or without a crown, you are still a king; my king.

(Rex brushes Raven’s hair back off her forehead and gently places a kiss on it. He always loved her, but it was even more apparent in that moment. She was his rock, his queen, and his voice of reason. Despite the hell she went through on Dynasty, here she was doing whatever she could to comfort him even though she was under no obligation to even be at the arena. Rex knew he was lucky, and he was grateful.)

Rex McAllister: I love you.

Raven Roberts: I love you too, and I believe in you. You have been screwed out of a lot matches this year, and more than anyone, I know how frustrating that is. But we both know that one setback, or even multiple ones, don’t define us. If anything, they help us and serve as motivation for the future. Those two idiots might have cost you a chance at King of Elite, but what we can do is take away their right to challenge for the Unified Tag Team Championships. They had their chance and they fucked it up due to their own lack of effort and arrogance. We’re both hard workers, and after we beat them, I’m going to destroy Sienna Jade, and you’re going to start working you way towards that Pain for Pride main event.

(Raven places her hands on the side of Rex’s face and leans up, pressing a kiss across his lips.)

Raven Roberts: It will all work out.

(Rex nods his head knowing deep down that is future wife is right. Somehow, someway Rex McAllister always seems to find himself in the big time matches, on the big time stage. The last two Pain for Prides haven’t gone his way, and after all the things that have gone down on Voltage so far this season, Voltage’s Gold Standard has found himself hungrier than ever to get back to where he belongs, and more importantly, to get his hands on the EAW World Championship.)

(Voltage fades elsewhere.)

(The camera fades into the Voltage women’s locker room as it then pans over to Sarah Price, she’s still recovering after the intense match she had against Consuela Rose Ava earlier. The door to the locker room then opens as her new tag team partner Sierra Bradford enters the scene. As soon as Sarah heard her she jumps on her feet and walks over to her.)

Sarah Price: There you are! Look, I know you have been busy on Dynasty this week and trust me, you did great during that match and you will absolutely get your hands on Darcy May Morgan at some point in the future, but you must absolutely stay focused on your match tonight. If you thought Darcy was a bully, look at Ogawa. We both know how dangerous Ogawa is. He is a lunatic, a sociopath, hell he might even be a killer for all we know! But bullies don’t deserve to win, and we have to prove that.

(Sierra grabs Sarah by the shoulders and looks straight in her eyes. She still has a smile on her face as she looks at her.)

Sierra Bradford: Look at me, I am focused and ready to go. Tonight I am going to teach him a lesson, and with you by my side, nothing can possibly go wrong. Besides, its Ogawa, I’ve stated many times that I don’t fear him over the course of this week, I gotta live up to that statement. Although yeah sure I earned a FAIR and decisive win over the Specialist Champion, I do also want to focus myself on Ogawa, for all we know that dead body might be me if I’m not careful :lupe:.

Sarah Price: Right! I am not doubting you, don’t get me wrong. This match tonight is very important to me, to you, to US. We just got to stop The Serpent King for good before he hurts other people and…

(Sierra, who is still holding Sarah by her shoulders, shakes her violently, just like a rag doll. She completely messes up her hair in the process as Sarah’s face is now hidden behind her blonde locks.)

Sierra Bradford: Look at me, please, I. Got. This. I just need you to keep your head on straight while your at ringside for the match. I don’t need the overly anxious Sarah Price by my side tonight. I need the Voltage Guardian Angel to watch over me because Lord knows what that freak has in store for me. Expect the unexpected you know?

(Sierra lets Sarah go and stares at her silently as she adjusts her hair. Sarah then takes her attention elsewhere as she looks around the locker room before looking at Sierra)

Sarah Price: Komatsu Ogawa is just the beginning. When I look around the Voltage locker room I see so many people that shouldn’t be allowed on Live TV, let alone on a family friendly show like EAW. I did my best in trying to change things for the better, but it feels like an insurmountable task at times. That’s why I need someone like you by my side.

Sierra Bradford: Exactly exactly, you see this is what SASS is all about. We are here for each other and together we will make things better for everyone. And it starts not just today, but when we put an end to every Ogawa out there until this place becomes much brighter. And if we are on the same page, which I’m sure we are right? There’s no limit to what we can accomplish, because we can and I’m sure of it. And you know, maybe we can step up to Heavenly Hell as well and go after those Unified Tag Team Titles one day, wouldn’t that be nice?

???: Give me a break.

(Joy Cassidy walks into frame. She looks like she’s on the verge of nearly bursting into laughter as she looks at both Sierra and Sarah.)

Joy Cassidy: Let me tell you something, one win does not bring the whole World to their feet. One win does not automatically give you a championship match, I’ll have you know. I’ll also let you know on this, if ANYTHING it should be ME! I was the one who outlasted four other competitors to make it to the final two at Road to Redemption, so as far as I’m concerned, Darcy and I have unfinished business. Also the Iconic Cup tournament? You lost that one too if time serves well.

Sarah Price: You didn’t make it to the finals either?

(Joy rolls her eyes and looks down her nose at Sarah.)

Joy Cassidy: Whatever, point is I managed to outlast both of you before getting out, which means I surpassed you. I surpassed you in the ring, and not just that but accomplishments. Let’s go back to last week, I have a win over the EAW World Champion AND the 24/7 Contract holder, must I say more? Need I say more? I deserve this shot more than any of you do.

(Both Sierra and Sarah look at eachother shaking their heads before looking at Joy.)

Sierra Bradford: You didn’t win the Specialists Chamber. No you were forced to submit to Darcy at the end weren’t you? You didn’t even get the pinfall to win your match last week that credit goes to Terry. What I’m trying to say here is, you’ve been taking a backseat this whole time and think because of that it’s an equivalent to a title shot?

Joy Cassidy: Much more than you. I mean correct me if I’m wrong here even if that’s so I still have more worth than you.

Sierra Bradford: Well in case you didn’t know, I actually beat the Specialists Champion, you didn’t, you couldn’t. Even with four extra people practically by your side begging for the downfall of the Specialists Championship you couldn’t live up to your own hype and win. You see now that makes a difference in it’s own right. Sure you’ve been here longer but I’m the one that’s rattled her on the inside more. I’m the one Darcy’s got her eye on, not you. I’ve set out a warning for her already, I’ve pushed her buttons. Now you think you can walk into this and try to take the spotlight from me. You’re wrong, because this is my shot, the shot that I earned.

Joy Cassidy: By association of Drake King of course.

Sierra Bradford: I had to team with LC out of all people. And we still managed to win either way no matter. Case in point is I want this title shot and I’ve already shown that. I’ve already solidified myself as a force to be reckoned with not just to her, but I’m sure to the locker room after that win. I’m one of the few people that can say they beat Kassidy Heart as well, even if that is just by her brief association with Darcy! This title shot is mine, put your status to complicated already will you?

(The smirk on Joy’s face turns to slight anger as she walks up to Sierra)

Joy Cassidy: You want to prove that? You really want to prove that you want to get this title shot rather than me? This is a death wish for you, but say how about this. Next week, me versus you. And then we can see who truly deserves that shot.

Sierra Bradford: Consider it done, good luck Joy.

(Sierra holds out her hand hoping that Joy would shake it, because no matter the heat between them Sierra still wants to show respect.)

Joy Cassidy: Good luck Sierra, you’ll need it.

(Joy slaps Sierra’s hand away before nudging her with her shoulder as she turns and walks away. After, Sierra looks at Sarah who gives a shrug before they both continue to talk as Sierra begins to get ready for her match and the camera fades into a promotional ad for King of Elite.)

(A promotional ad for King of Elite airs highlighting the history between the EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine, and the challenger for that belt, Terry Chambers. Voltage’s main event is set for the King of Elite free-per-view, which comes to you live on February 8th, 2020 from The Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy.)

(Voltage returns and cuts to Rich and James who look really excited for the next match.)

James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next, a singles match between Komatsu Ogawa and Sierra Bradford, but this isn’t just any singles match…This match will be fought under Deathmatch rules!!!

Rich Russillo: I couldn’t have said it better myself, James. A match of this sort is the perfect opportunity for either of these competitors to launch themselves into superstardom amongst the EAW universe. To show what grueling lengths you’re willing to go to, in order to win. I would say I can’t wait, but thankfully the wait is over! Let’s dive right into this bout!

(‘Stabbing In The Dark’ begins to play as Komatsu Ogawa appears on the stage.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLES DEEAAATTTHHHMATCHHHH!!! INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF TOKYO, JAPAAANNNNN…WEIGHING IN AT 251lbs….”THE SERPENT KING”….KOOMMMATTTSUUUUUUUU OGGGAWWWAAAAAA!!!

James Peters: Not a very welcoming reception for Komatsu Ogawa, but I don’t believe that will phase him tonight. Especially considering he favors Deathmatches! This young man is ruthless, a cold blooded serpent tearing his way through the Voltage roster. He is no stranger to using dirty tactics and methods to cheat his way to victory. I believe this may give him a slight edge tonight.

Rich Russillo: Dirty? You may want to use a more accurate adjective, James. If bending the rules is how you win, then power to you! It falls to his opponent to recognize his clever tendencies, and to overcome them. You may not believe it’s honorable, respectable, or decent, but his strategies and tactics have led him to become a promising young competitor on Voltage, and that’s undisputed.

James Peters: I don’t believe it’s respectable in any aspect, but I agree with you on one thing, it is Sierra Bradford’s job to overcome those tendencies, especially in a Deathmatch. (‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake begins to play as Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price make their way onto the stage.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, WRESTLING OUT OF SANNNN JOSSEEEE, CALIIIFORNIAAAAA…WEIGHING IN AT 141lbs….SIIIERRRAAAAAA “THE BULLET CHICK” BRAAADDDFOOOORRRRDDD!!!

James Peters: Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price are walking with a purpose tonight, Bradford is always passionate and displays that passion and love for wrestling every time she performs in the squared circle. She, unlike Ogawa, does not cheat or use dirty tactics, she only aims to have the best matches possible and achieve as much success as she can.

Rich Russillo: Sierra Bradford has a chance tonight to show everyone what she is willing to do to achieve success. Like I said earlier, this deathmatch is a prime opportunity for either of these competitors to prove why they are the hottest young talent on Voltage today! The anticipation is over, The Deathmatch is finally here, let’s get right int- OGAWA STORMS SIERRA BRADFORD ON HER WAY TO THE RING! HE ISN’T GOING TO WAIT, HE AIMS TO IMPOSE HIS WILL EARLY, AS HE DRIVES SIERRA BRADFORD INTO THE BARRICADE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: The match has officially begun, but it’s already an uphill battle for Sierra Bradford. Komatsu Ogawa still keeping Sierra Bradford outside of the ring, looking to continue this punishment…AND HE DOES AS HE DROPS HER BACK FIRST ONTO THE BARRICADE! MY GOD, WHAT A NASTY MOVE, THE BODY OF SIERRA BRADFORD IS ALREADY BEING TARGETED IN THIS DEATHMATCH, MOST CERTAINLY NOT THE START SHE WAS LOOKING FOR! Ogawa seems to have receded for the time being, just relishing in this early punishment of Bradford…Oh no…Ogawa circles the outside, already looking under the ring for a weapon of his choosing …WHAT THE HELL IS- IS THAT A CHAIR WRAPPED IN BARBWIRE?!?! HOW THE HELL DOES HE PLAN TO USE THAT!?!?…OGAWA HEADING BACK IN BRADFORD’S DIRECTION, WHO HASN’T HAD A CHANCE SINCE THE GET GO …HE IS GONNA END HER WITH THAT CHAIR…NO, SIERRA BRADFORD DUCKS UNDER, AND COUNTERS WITH A SUPERKICK!!!! CRUSHING THE BARBED WIRE COATED STEEL AGAINST THE FACE OF KOMATSU OGAWA!!! WHAT A COUNTER FROM BRADFORD, THAT WAS THE MOVE SHE NEEDED TO TURN THE TIDE OF THIS MATCH!!

Rich Rusillo: SIERRA BRADFORD SEEMS TO HAVE RECOVERED, AND SHE IS ENRAGED! SHE IS GOING TO PUNISH KOMTASU OGAWA! Bradford wielding the chair now…What the hell does she have in mind…SHE THROWS THE CHAIR AT THE FACE OF OGAWA, WHO CATCHES IT, BUT BRADFORD FOLLOWS UP WITH A PENALTY KICK AGAINST THE CHAIR!!! HOLY SHIT, THAT MOVE COULD HAVE VERY WELL JUST ENDED THE MATCH, SIERRA BRADFORD NEEDS TO CAPITALIZE, BUT SHE’S WEARING THE EFFECTS OF THE EARLIER RESULT FROM OGAWA! SHE ROLLS HIM BACK IN THE RING, AND HEADS INTO THE COVER, THIS COULD BE IT, AN EARLY VICTORY FOR BRADFORD…

(ONEEEEEEE…)

(TWWOOOOOO…)

James Peters: KICKOUT! OGAWA SURVIVES THE ONSLAUGHT FROM SIERRA! BUT FOR HOW LONG, OGAWA IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN, HE’S POURING BLOOD ALL OVER THE MAT! Sierra Bradford will offer him no quarter however, this isn’t about compassion or honor, this is about success and doing whatever is necessary in order to achieve it…Bradford heads to the outside of the ring now…Pulling out a slew of weapons, tables, bats, light tubes…But does she have the will to use them…IT APPEARS SO AS SHE UNSHEATHES A BAT WRAPPED IN RAZOR WIRE, IT’LL BE HORRIFYING IF SHE USES ANY ONE OF – BUT SHE WON’T GET THE CHANCE, OGAWA STORMS HER FROM BEHIND…THEN FOLLOWS UP WITH A BRUTAL OVERHEAD SUPLEX ON THE FLOOR!!! MY GOD, YOU COULD ALMOST HEAR THE ORGANS OF BRADFORD SLAMMING AGAINST HER RIB CAGE, THAT WAS DEVASTATING!! OGAWA GOES ON THE OFFENSIVE NOW, ATTEMPTING TO LIFT BRADFORD BACKUP TO HER FEET, WHAT THE HELL DOES HE HAVE INSTORE FOR HER NEXT…OH NO…NOT A PILEDRIVER…NOT ON THE FLOOR…HE’S GOING TO DRIVE THE SKULL OF SIERRA BRADFORD DOWN- WAIT SIERRA ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR AND NAILS OGAWA WITH A HEEL KICK! BUT OGAWA QUICKLY RETURNS ATTEMPTING A DESTRUCTIVE LARIAT…BUT SIERRA BRADFORD COUNTERS ONCE AGAIN, AS SHE GRABS A LIGHT TUBE AND SMASHES IT OVER THE SKULL OF KOMATSU OGAWA!!! JESUS CHRIST!!

Rich Russillo: GLASS SHARDS FLYING EVERYWHERE, OGAWA’S FACE AND HEAD BUSTED WIDE OPEN, SPILLING BLOOD ALL OVER SIERRA BRADFORD AS SHE ATTEMPTS TO GET HIM BACK IN THE RING!! OGAWA’S SEEMINGLY LIFELESS BODY WON’T BUDGE AS BRADFORD ATTEMPTS TO CAPITALIZE ON THIS MOMENT …SHE FINALLY HAS HIM UP…BUT OGAWA COUNTERS THIS TIME, BREAKING FREE OF SIERRA BRADFORD AND DELIVERING A SPIKE DDT ON THE FLOOR!! HOLY SHIT!!! OGAWA WAS PLAYING POSSUM, HE WAITED FOR HIS MOMENT TO STRIKE, AND THE SERPENT DID EXACTLY THAT!!! BRADFORD IS DOWN AGAIN, AS OGAWA BEARS A MENACING SMILE AMONGST HIS BLOOD STAINED FACE…He brings Bradford back up to her feet, as he begins to shout and curse at her, Ogawa aims to finish this…HE SETS UP A TABEL ON THE OUTSIDE, WHAT THE FUCK COULD HE BE LOOKING FOR HERE….WAIT, HE BRINGS SIERRA BRADFORD UP TO THE APRON NOW…SURELY HE CANT BE LOOKING TO DRIVE HER THROUGH THAT TABLE OFF THE APRON, THAT WOULD BE DEVASTATING FOR BOTH OF THEM…BUT IT SEEMS AS THOUGH OGAWA DOESNT CARE, HE WANTS TO PUNISH BRADFORD, HE WANTS TO TORTURE HER, AND END HER CAREER, A MOVE LIKE THIS JUST MIGHT DO IT…OH NO…OGAWA STACKING HER UP FOR A POWERBOMB…DON’T DO IT…NO….BUT BRADFORD ESCAPES AND STUNS KOMATSU OGAWA WITH AN ENZEGUIRI!!! RIGHT TO THE JAW, TEMPORARILY ESCAPING THAT PERIL, THIS IS HER MOMENT, SHE NEEDS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE NOW…SHE LOOKS TO BE SETTING UP FOR THE SEEKING MISSILE, THAT FLYING KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE… SHE COULD TURN THE MATCH IN HER FAVORE RIGHT HERE, THIS IS HER CHANCE….BUT OGAWA CAUGHT HER, HE SCOOPS HER UP WITH NO HESITATION, SETTING HER UP FOR A PILEDRIVER…HOLY SHIT…OH NO!!!! OGAWA DRIVES BRADFORD ALL THE WAY DOWN WITH A PILEDRIVER THROUGH THE TABBBBLLEEEEEE!!!! OOKFKOFKSKAFOKSAFOP!!!!!

(The crowd begins to chant: “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!”)

James Peters: I COULDNT AGREE WITH THIS CROWD MORE, HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!! KOMATSU OGAWA JUST DROVE BRADFORD OFF THE APRON TO THE FLOOR, THROUGH A TABLE WITH A PILEDRIVER!!! BRADFORD IS DONE, SHE HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT BY OGAWA, WHO ROLLS HER IN THE RING FOR A COVER….

(ONEEEEEEE…..)

(TWWOOOOOOOOOOO….)

(THRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-)

James & Rich: KICKOUT!!!!!!!!!! HOLY SHIT!!!

James Peters: HOW THE HELL IS SIERRA BRADFORD STILL ALIVE IN THIS MATCH, HOW DID SHE SURVIVE THAT ATROCITY THROUGH THE TABLE!!! OGAWA LOOKS AS STUNNED AS THE FACES THAT RUN THROUGH THE CROWD! BUT SIERRA BRADFORD IS STILL FIGHTING, STILL ALIVE, SHE WILL FIGHT TO HER LAST BREATH IF SHE MUST, THAT’S A WARRIOR RIGHT THERE!! THE HEAD OF BRADFORD IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN, THIS CANVAS STAINED WITH BLOOD PAINTS A PICTURE, AND A STORY, A STORY OF TWO WARRIORS BATTLING TILL THEIR END, BOTH WILLING TO DIE BEFORE RETREATING! SIERRA BRADFORD HAS MADE HER WAY UP TO HER FEET NOW, AS OGAWA LOCKS EYES WITH HER…THE COMPLEX STARE OF TWO POLAR OPPOSITES IN THE SAME SITUATION, NEITHER WILLING TO GIVE UP, NEITHER WILLING TO LET GO OF THEIR PRIDE…BRADFORD STRIKES FIRST WITH A SLAP THAT KNOCKED THE TASTE OUT OF OGAWA’S MOUTH …OGAWA RETURNS WITH A SLAP OF HIS OWN, OF EQUAL DISDAIN AND MALICE, AND NOW THE FIGHT IT ON!!! THE HOCKEY FIGHT IS ON BLOOD FLYING EVERYWHERE AS IT STAINS THE BODIES OF BOTH COMPETITORS, EMOTIONS ARE ROLLING NOW AS BOTH FIGHTERS ATTEMPT TO BREAK THE OTHER, TO SEE WHOSE WILL IS STRONGER…SIERRA BRADFORD NAILS THE ‘THUNDERBIRD’ A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL OF OGAWA!!! HE’S OUT OF IT, BRADFORD HAS HIM ON THE ROPES …NOW ATTEMPTING A MOONSAULT…BUT OGAWA ESCAPES, AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, AS SIERRA LANDS ON HER FEET …BUT SHE ISN’T GOING TO GIVE OGAWA NAY TIME TO RECOVER, ANY ROOM TO REST, SIERRA BRADFORD SCALES THE TURNBUCKLES…OH NO…BRADFORD FLIES WITH DOUBLE KNEES FROM THE HIGH RED DISTRICT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOOOOR!!!!

Rich Russillo: WHAT A MOVE!! WHAT A MATCH!!! BOTH OF THESE YOUNG TALENTS LEAVING IT ALL OUT THERE, WE ARE WITNESSING A CLASSIC!! SIERRA BRADFORD HAS THE ADVANTAGE, SHE HAS A CHANCE RIGHT NOW TO FINISH THIS DEATHMATCH, TO WRITE HER NAME IN THE HISTORY BOOKS…NOW SHE HAS OGAWA STACKED UP…AND DROPS HIM WITH ‘MISERRYYYYY BUSINESSES’!!!! THAT FIREMAN’S CARRY STUNNER, COULD HAVE JUST ENDED THIS MATCH!!! SIERRA BRADFORD HAS DONE IT…WAIT…WHAT THE HELL, WHY ISN’T SHE GOING FOR THE COVER!??! SHE JUST NAILED A NASTY MANEUVER AND COULD HAVE ENDED IT RIGHT THERE, WHAT THE HELL IS SHE LOOKING FOR NOW …SHE IS SCALING THE ROPES…PERHAPS LOOKING TO PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF KOMATSU OGAWA, TO PUT HIM OUT FOR GOOD …SIERRA BRADFORD LOOKING FOR ‘TAKE FLIGHT’…SHE IS GONNA DO IT, SHE IS GONNA END IT RIGHT HERE …SIERRAAAA BRADDFORRD WITH TAKE FLIIIGHHHHHTT- BUT OGAWA ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY!!! NO WATER IN THE POOL FOR BRADFORD!!! SHE MISSED BIGTIME AND THAT WILL COST HER …OGAWA NOW SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER, HE KNOWS THIS IS HIS CHANCE, HE KNOWS THIS IS HIS OPPORTUNITY …KOMATSU OGAWA ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING HOWEVER …HE HAS HER ON THE ROPES AND HE WANTS TO LOOK FOR A WEAPON?!?! WHAT AN IDIOT!!

James Peters: WAIT…RICH HE HAS A BAG IN HIS HAND…WHAT THE HELL IS IN IT…WHAT DOES HE HAVE….Komatsu Ogawa slowly opening the bag…AS HE DUMPS THUMBTACKS ALL OVER THE CANVAS!!! OH MY LORD, AS IF THIS MATCH HASN’T BEEN BRUTAL ENOUGH, THE INTRODUCTION OF THOSE TACKS WILL SURELY END IT NOW…OGAWA LIFTS BRADFORD UP FOR A POWERBOMB…DON’T DO THIS, DON’T DO THIS…KOMATSU OGAWA IS GOING TO END SIERRA BRADFORD HERE …OGAWA POWERBOMBS BRADFORD ONTO THOSE TACKS, HOLY FUCKING HELL!!! DMLSGIONEAONGNE!!! BRADFORD SCREAMING OUT IN AGONY, I CAN’T BEAR TO SEE THIS, HOLY SHIT!! OGAWA DOESNT CARE, HE’S LAUGHING, THAT EVIL FUCK IS LAUHING….OGAWA AGAIN MAKES HIS WAY TO THE OTUSIDE AGAIN, THIS TIME TEASING SARAH PRICE ABOUT HER TEAMMATE’S PAIN, THIS IS EVIL…OGAWA TURNS AND ATTEMPTS TO ATTACK SARAH!!!…BUT PRICE COUNTERS INTO A NASTY KNEE TO THE FACE!!! PRICE ISN’T GOING TO STAND FOR THIS, SHE’S BEATING THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF KOMATSU OGAWA, WHAT A STUPID DECISION TO ATTACK THE PARTNER OF BRADFORD, WHO IS FUELED BY THE PAIN OF HER TEAMATE!! PRICE NOW ROLLING OGAWA BACK INTO THE RING, HELPING BRADFORD BACK TO HER FEET…NOW BRADFORD LOCKS IN THE ‘LIGHTS OUT’ DRAGON SLEEPER!!! OGAWA HAS NO ESCAPE NOW…BUT HE WON’T TAP OUT, HE WON TAP…BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER, HE’S FADED AWAY, HE’S PASSED OUT, SIERRA WINS, SIERRA WINS!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: Oh my god…What a match, both of these competitors fought to the very end. They dug deep into their arsenal and pulled out tricks none had seen before. It was a hard fought match, but at the end of the day, love conquered hate. Komatsu Ogawa’s own confidence got in the way of him securing the victory here tonight. He may have had it won if not for the attack on Sarah Price. Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price celebrate with each other, as Sierra relishes in her win. Their partnership looks as if it will achieve great things for both of them. Congratulations to Sierra Bradford on her victory tonight! What a great weekend it’s been for her!

(The camera catches a final shot of SASS embracing one another and talking excitedly about Sierra’s victory over Komatsu Ogawa before fading to commercial.)

(Commercial break for the new Disney Pixar film, “Onward.” Coming in March!)

(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella, who smiles.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER TO THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP… ‘THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE’ TERRY CHAMBERS!

(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons hits and the crowd begins cheering as Terry Chambers walks out to the stage. He has a smile on his face as he begins walking down the ramp, but he doesn’t walk into the ring immediately. Once he’s inside, Bella hands him the microphone and takes her leave.)

Terry Chambers: ‘Sup Moscow?

(The crowd begins cheering louder once again, leaving Terry looking around at the fans before they eventually quiet down so he can continue speaking.)

Terry Chambers: You know, it’s real funny to me. Just a few years ago, I was the man getting eliminated from Grand Rampages in seconds. Nobody used to take me seriously. Nobody saw me as a credible opponent, and if I’m being honest I don’t blame any of them for that. I used to be self-centered despite not being able to back up my ego, kinda like most of the people here now. But, I’ll tell you one thing. All those people that thought I wouldn’t make it, I bet they’ve all shut their mouths now. All the people who thought I’d amount to nothing, I bet I silenced them. I’ve been through things most of the people in this company haven’t, and with each setback I’ve only gotten stronger. Don’t believe me? Look at me last year. I don’t know if any of you guys remember this, but not even a full year ago the Round Table kidnapped me and attempted to murder me. See, if I wasn’t Terry Chambers they would’ve succeeded in killing me, but unfortunately I am. They tried to take me out for good, and not only did they fail at taking me out, but I came back stronger than ever, and that led to me taking the Interwire Championship away from Drake King. Drake King was another one of the people I bet I made shut up now. Dude ran his mouth for weeks and weeks about how I wasn’t good enough, and the second he didn’t have those three with him, I took what was rightfully mine. I got past Korey Gaines and defended my title, and of course, I was screwed over.

(Terry pauses for a bit, growing a more serious look before continuing to speak.)

Terry Chambers: I did lose my title to Dr. Bethany Blue, but that wasn’t enough to stop me. I did lose at Road to Redemption, and that wasn’t enough to stop me either. Like I already said, with every setback I grow stronger, and we all saw that when I faced Charlie Marr in the King of Elite tournament. I should be the one facing Dr. Bethany Blue in the semi-finals. I should be getting my payback and stamping my way to the finals. Instead, Charlie and Jordie both realized I was way out of their league, so they screwed me over. Just like when I faced Drake at Wrath of the Dragon and the Round Table had to hand him the win because of me being too good, Jordie had to hand Charlie the win. Charlie Marr preached that he was levels above me, but he’s just like the rest of em. He couldn’t back it up in that ring, but in the end it doesn’t even matter because I’m getting exactly what I wanted in the first place. I’m getting my EAW Championship match at King of Elite against Andrea Valentine. Funny enough, Andrea and I actually have a bit of history together. I remember when Andrea and I faced off for the Openweight Championship. She did great. She is great, there’s no denying that, but then what happened? She failed to follow up and capitalize on her win, and she went on to lose to Lars Grier. No, not whatever this new Lars is, I’m talking about old Lars. The Lars that everyone hyped up just to turn out to be a disappointment. The Lars that crashed and burned in his first defense against Kevin Hunter, the same guy who lost HIS Openweight Championship a week later to TLA. Yeah, that’s the Lars Andrea lost to after the amazing performance she gave me. I’ll always find that weird, but whatever. That’s not the only time we got in that ring together though. No, far from it.

Terry Chambers: If any of you guys remember, at the draft show to open up this season there was this huge Clash of Champions match. At the time Andrea Valentine was Specialists Champion, and I had just won the Interwire Championship. In that match, I lost, and it was Andrea that pinned me. It’s funny how much things have changed since then, but unfortunately that loss is one that’s gonna stick with me. I have no excuses for losing that match. I didn’t when I got pinned, and I don’t have any six months later. I lost fair and square, and I’m bringing this up because I want it to be known that I’m not facing a big loss like that to Andrea again, especially not at King of Elite. This time, things are going to be different, and that’s because since my loss to Andrea I’ve grown. I’ve accepted my loss, and I’ve worked to surpass that. I may have gotten the pin to win that tag match last week, but that wasn’t good enough. I want to defeat Andrea Valentine, and at King of Elite I’m going to. That EAW Championship escaped my hands at Road to Redemption, and while I’m beyond glad that Charlie Marr’s not holding that title, lord knows that I still want that Championship just as much as I did a month ago. So come on out here Andrea. Come look me in the eyes, because when you do, you’ll see that I’m not messing around.

(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX then hits and the crowd explodes as Andrea Valentine makes her way out to the stage. She has the EAW Championship on her shoulder and she already has a microphone in her hand, so she walks straight to the ring with a confident look on her face. She gets into the ring and eventually the crowd quiets down so she can speak.)

Andrea Valentine: Terry, I said it before and I’ll say it again. I’d never underestimate you, or anyone for that matter. Especially in a match like this where my Championship is on the line, I can’t possibly look down on you. I know that you’re hungry for my Championship, and that’s just really gonna push me to bring my best. I’ve never been the kind of person to shy away from challenges, and I know that you’re gonna try and make the most out of this one. You’re not going to be satisfied until you win the EAW Championship and I respect that, but as great of a moment as that’d be for you, that moment won’t come at my expense. I’m not going to let that happen. I’m going to give our match my all, and I’ll do whatever it takes to leave King of Elite still EAW Champion, because in my eyes, it’s something I just have to do. See, this match has a lot of history behind it, and it’s not just because I pinned you at the draft show, or even because you won our tag team match last week. Last year at King of Elite, I had a match against Serena Bennett. It was my first defense as the new Specialists Champion after winning it at Road to Redemption, and I failed. I failed to defend the Championship, and that never sat well for me. I’m sure many people, including myself, believes that my second Specialists Championship reign more than made up for that, but that’s not enough for me. This time, I truly want things to be different.

Andrea Valentine: At Road to Redemption this year, I became the new EAW Champion, and now I’m heading into my first title defense at King of Elite 2020. If I lose here, it’d be like nothing truly changed. It’d just be my past coming back to haunt me, and I can’t have that. I won’t have that. I want to correct myself. I want to erase my past failure and replace it with success. I want to get rid of my demons, and to do that I need to defeat you at King of Elite. I may have beaten you before but I know very well that things could change if I don’t perform to the best of my ability. If I don’t bring my 100 percent, or even more, then I could walk out of King of Elite this year the same way I did last year. That’s a fate that I don’t want to allow to happen. It’s a fate I won’t allow to happen. So bring your best Terry, because I’ll-

Terry Chambers: Woah woah woah. Sorry to interrupt, but you want to get rid of your demons?

Andrea Valentine: Yes.

Terry Chambers: In that case, why don’t we spice things up a bit? If you want to get rid of your demons so badly, why not face me in a match you haven’t succeeded in before? If you want to get rid of your demons, why don’t you do one thing you couldn’t do against Serena last year and that’s defend your championship in a Chain Match?

(The crowd begins cheering loudly at the announcement of a chain match, as Andrea Valentine seems surprised at the challenge Terry just offered. Of course, the Chain Match ended up being the bane of Andrea’s existence at last year’s King of Elite.)

Terry Chambers: But wait! There’s more! This match is going to be a traditional chain match, not like the weird one you competed in last year, Andrea. In case people are confused about the actual stipulation of a Chain Match, one of us has to manage to touch all four corners of the ring while chained to your opponent in succession. Seems simple enough, but when you’re going against someone like me, even the simplest tasks can become the most difficult of challenges.

(Andrea Valentine takes some time to think about the decision. Obviously, she’d be put in an immediate disadvantage due to the size difference between herself and Terry, but at the same time, it wasn’t unlike Andrea to overcome the odds before. Eventually, she began to smile and nod her head as the crowd begins to cheer once again.)

Andrea Valentine: I accept.

Terry Chambers: That’s what I like to hear. Good luck, Champ.

(The two shake hands before ‘Roll With Me’ kicks back up and Andrea Valentine exits the ring. Both competitors have a smile on their faces, excited for their match at King of Elite, as the camera slowly fades to the final commercial break for the evening.)

(Commercial break for the Grammy Awards which air next Sunday on CBS!)

(Voltage returns to the crowd on their feet. However, instead of directing their attention towards the ring where Bella is standing to announce the competitors for the main event, the crowd is staring at the front row of seats to the left of the announce table. The crowd is buzzing. Some of them are cheering. But regardless everyone is entranced as a flash of brightly colored hair is seen. The camera zooms in and Ms. Extreme is seen making her way to an empty seat.)

James Peters: Holy shit. Welcome back to Voltage. As you can see, the expelled Elitist known as Ms. Extreme has made her way to the front row. How the fuck did she get into the building, Rich?

Rich Russillo: That’s a good question but security is talking to her right now.

(Two security guards have made their way over to ‘The Red Queen.’ They are earnestly talking to her but Ms. Extreme pulls a ticket stub out of the back pocket of her jeans.)

James Peters: She has a ticket!!!

Ms. Extreme (off mic to the security guards): Paying customer. Whatcha gunna do?

(She shrugs her shoulders and takes a seat, and the fans around her erupt. The security guards eye Ms. Extreme with suspicion, but they can’t really do anything since she has a ticket.)

Rich Russillo: This is not going to settle well with Dr. Bethany Blue at all. She went out of her way to have Ms. Extreme barred from the building for the last two weeks. I’m sure that has very little to do with the good doctor’s ‘concern’ over Ms. Extreme’s health.

James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue just doesn’t want Ms. Extreme to get revenge on her. That’s the only reason she’s gone to these lengths to keep the former PURE Champ away from Voltage.

(With the commotion dying down, and Ms. Extreme settled, the camera focuses on Bella.)

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Bella Braxton: AND IT’S A KING OF ELITE SEMI-FINAL MATCH!

(The crowd pops.)

Bella Braxton: The winner of this match will head to King of Elite and represent Voltage in the finals!

(‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits and the crowd, as always, begins booing heavily as Charlie and Jordie Marr begin making their way out to the stage. They slowly begin walking down to the ring, but Charlie has a smile on his face, seeming very confident in his chances tonight.)

Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… Accompanied by Jordie Marr… From Tower Hamlets, London, United Kingdom… Weighing in at 240 pounds…. CHHAAAAARRRLLLIIIEEEEE MMAAAAAARRR!!!!!

James Peters: Much like Dr. Bethany Blue, Charlie has been on an absolute tear this whole tournament, which has lead to him and Bethany facing each other in the finals. Funny enough, just a month ago Charlie lost his EAW Championship to Andrea Valentine in shocking fashion. If he gets past Bethany Blue and wins the finals, he can get an opportunity to take that title right back.

Rich Russillo: It’s a future I’m sure nobody wants, but it’s also a very possible one. If Charlie gets past Bethany Voltage will definitely have a strong competitor in the finals, although now that I think about it, we’re guaranteed a great performer anyway as it’s either Charlie, or the Interwire Champion. Speaking of which, here she comes.

(Charlie flips Ms. Extreme off as he passes by her and gets into the ring with Jordie. Jordie gives her husband a kiss for good luck, and Charlie’s music fades out.)

(‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi follows and the booing actually continues as Dr. Bethany Blue M.D makes her way out to the ring. She has the Interwire Championship around her waist, but she looks both frustrated and even a bit rattled as she looks towards the crowd, locking eyes with Ms. Extreme who is standing up now, while walking down the ramp. Dr. Blue eventually puts the title at the timekeepers area, but doesn’t take her eyes off Ms. Extreme. Ms. Extreme blows her a kiss and the doctor gets really annoyed.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent… Residing in Boca Raton, Florida… Weighing in at 128 pounds.. SHE IS THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION, DOCTORRRR BEETTHAANNNYYYY BLLUUUUUUEEEE!!!

James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue is out here, and with what happened earlier it’s clear to see why she seems this way. Ms. Extreme is here in attendance despite not being allowed to compete for the second week in a row. Now Bethany is probably worried about her chances tonight when Ms. Extreme is right there, likely waiting for an opportunity to strike, in the Doc’s mind at least.

Rich Russillo: You know, now that I think about it, why would Ms. Extreme interfere in this match? Look who Bethany’s facing. Ms. Extreme hates Charlie Marr just as much, if not even more than her. If anything, Ms. Extreme would probably rather beat the life out of both of them. Probably Jordie too. But just cost Bethany the match? I don’t think so.

James Peters: Well, we’ve only got one way to find out.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And now this match is underway! Charlie Marr versus Dr. Bethany Blue in the semi-finals of the King of Elite tournament! The two have yet to make a move, but Charlie has a pretty arrogant grin on his face looking right at The Doctor, who seems to be trying to remain focused. The two competitors are slowly Beginning to circle the ring, although to be honest Charlie doesn’t seem anywhere near as intimidated or serious as Dr. Bethany Blue, but if you take one look at the crowd it’s easy to see why. Even so, Bethany obviously wants to win this match, so she can’t let Ms. Extreme get to her head.

Rich Russillo: The two competitors now locking up- BUT BETHANY IMMEDIATELY GOES IN FOR A SLEEPER HOLD! Seeing as she is a Doctor outside of EAW and that’s not just some sort of gimmick, I’m guessing she figured that this would be able to do some damage early on. Can’t say I blame her for going for a sleeper hold so early on either, after all, seeing as Ms. Extreme is somehow here after not being allowed to compete once again, you’ve got to imagine that Dr. Bethany Blue would want to get out of her sight as soon as she can.

James Peters: You’re right about that one. Bethany still has that Sleeper Hold locked in- BUT CHARLIE MANAGES TO PULL HER INTO A SNAPMARE! Charlie now running the ropes- AND HE ATTEMPTED A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE BUT BETHANY MANAGED TO GRAB CHARLIE’S FOOT BEFORE TWISTING IT INTO AN ANKLE LOCK! BETHANY IS STILL ON THE GROUND AS CHARLIE IS ON ONE FOOT, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S TRYING TO WRAP HER LEGS AROUND CHARLIE’S LEG, BUT SHE’S CLEARLY STRUGGLING TO AS CHARLIE HOPS AROUND ON ONE FOOT- AND OH MY GOD! CHARLIE JUST JUMPED RIGHT ONTO THE MIDSECTION OF BETHANY, AND JUST LIKE THAT THE ANKLE LOCK IS BROKEN UP!

Rich Russillo: Both competitors are getting back up while Bethany holds her midsection in pain, and you can see just how fast Bethany wants to get this match over with with all these moves she’s attempting! Charlie now charging in as Bethany is in the corner, BUT THERE’S A BOOT TO THE FACE BY BETHANY! BETHANY ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE NOW, AND SHE GOES FOR A DIVING DOUBLE AXE HANDLE- BUT CHARLIE JUST AVOIDED IT BY DRIVING HIS KNEE RIGHT INTO HER MIDSECTION!

James Peters: Charlie now grabbing Bethany in a front facelock after that huge knee, AND THERE’S A SUPLEX! Charlie just laughing right now after that, as he knows that Bethany clearly has Ms. Extreme on her mind right now! Her methods this early on could easily be seen as desperate, and Charlie is just making the most of it right now as he’s slowly taking Dr. Bethany Blue out of this match! Charlie lifting Bethany up, AND THERE’S A KNEE LIFT TO THE MIDSECTION ONCE AGAIN! Charlie now with an irish whip to the ropes-

Rich Russillo: BUT BETHANY RESPONDS WITH A CORKSCREW ELBOW SMASH! CHARLIE IS HOLDING HIS NOSE AFTER THAT, AND THAT WAS AN IMPRESSIVE WAY TO GET BACK INTO THIS BY BETHANY! CHARLIE GETTING BACK UP AND BACKING INTO THE CORNER, AND BETHANY NOW RUNS IN, AND THERE’S A EUROPEAN FOREARM IN THE CORNER! Bethany now climbing up to the top rope as Charlie stumbles out of the corner, AND THERE’S A DIVING MISSILE DROPKICK! Dr. Bethany Blue is making her way back into this one, and now she goes and grabs Charlie who already found his way back onto a knee!

James Peters: BETHANY WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE! Charlie dropping down to the mat after that knee, but he doesn’t have time to cover his face or anything as Bethany immediately grabs him by the arm, AND STARTS STOMPING AWAY AT HIS FACE! BETHANY WITH MULTIPLE HARD STOMPS TO CHARLIE’S FACE, AND NOW SHE CLIMBS ONTO THE SECOND ROPE ONCE AGAIN! DIVING KNEE DROP ONTO CHARLIE’S CHEST! CHARLIE IS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE RIGHT NOW WITH THIS INTERESTING LINE OF OFFENSE BY BETHANY, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER!

ONE! T-

Rich Russillo: Charlie kicks out! It was clear that that wasn’t gonna get the job done but she might as well had tried anyway. Bethany now, SAY AH- NO! CHARLIE CAUGHT BETHANY’S ARM BEFORE SHE COULD GO FOR THAT MANDIBLE CLAW! CHARLIE NOW GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET AS HE STILL HAS BETHANY’S ARM, AND NOW HE PULLS HER IN FOR A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE! Bethany tried to put Charlie away early once again but Charlie managed to stop her attempt at the Say Ahhhh! Charlie now picking Bethany up, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA TRY PUTTING THIS ONE AWAY HIMSELF! THE QUEEN IS DEAD!

James Peters: NO! BETHANY RAMS CHARLIE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BEFORE THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT COULD CONNECT! Both competitors are down after the exchange we just saw not long ago, but that doesn’t last too long as Charlie rolls out of the ring while Bethany rolls onto the apron. Both competitors seem to be back on their feet now, and we have to remember that despite what’s been going on between Bethany and Camille, this is still a semi-finals King of Elite tournament match! These two need to give it their all, and that’s what at least one competitor aims to do AS BETHANY DIVES OFF THE APRON WITH A FLYING CLOTHESLINE!

Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue isn’t a crowd favorite which is a known fact, but I’ve got to assume that between her and Charlie Marr, Bethany is just barely the lesser of two evils. Bethany grabbing Charlie now, AND SHE SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE POST OUTSIDE OF THE RING! That doesn’t look too good and Bethany herself should know that, which is exactly why she went and did something like that! That could’ve very well have injured Charlie’s shoulder, thank God it seems that she isn’t aiming to cause injury! Bethany now rolling Charlie back into the ring as she begins climbing up to the top- NO!

James Peters: JORDIE MARR IS HOLDING ONTO BETHANY’S LEG! THE REFEREE YELLING AT JORDIE WHICH FORCES HER TO LET GO- BUT NOW THERE’S CHARLIE WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE, CAUSING BETHANY TO FALL BACK TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! THERE’S A SICK GRIN ON CHARLIE’S FACE NOW AS HE SLOWLY ROLLS BACK OUTSIDE, AND I DON’T LIKE THE LOOKS OF THINGS NOW AS HE FINALLY LETS GO OF THAT SHOULDER!

Rich Russillo: Charlie picking Bethany up now, AND HE THROWS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE POST, WITH ALL HIS POWER! BETHANY IS LEFT SQUIRMING AROUND ON THE FLOOR, HOLDING HER FACE AFTER THAT, BUT CHARLIE IS DEFINITELY NOT DONE YET! WHEN WE SEE TWO RUTHLESS COMPETITORS CLASH LIKE THIS, THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT’S BOUND TO HAPPEN! CHARLIE PICKING HER UP ONCE AGAIN, BEFORE RAMMING HER INTO THE BARRICADE! BETHANY YELLED OUT IN PAIN AFTER THAT, AND YET CHARLIE STILL ISN’T FINISHED AS HE LIFTS HER UP! SNAKE EYES ONTO THE BARRICADE! BETHANY LOOKS OUT OF IT, AND NOW CHARLIE ROLLS INTO THE RING BEFORE ROLLING BACK OUT TO RESTART THE COUNT!

James Peters: Charlie now dragging Dr. Bethany Blue over to the ramp, and this doesn’t look too good. Charlie pulling Bethany up, and he has her in a fireman’s carry position- BUT LOOK! BETHANY MANAGES TO SQUIRM OUT OF HIS GRASP, AND SHE’S GOT AHOLD OF HIS HEAD! BETHANY WITH THE GRADE C2 ON THE RAMP! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN, AND THE REFEREE IS AT A COUNT OF THREE! THAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE COUNTER BY DR. BETHANY BLUE, BUT IS THAT GONNA END UP COSTING HER THE MATCH!?

Referee: Four!… Five!

Rich Russillo: Both competitors are at the bottom of the ramp, and they’re crawling towards the ring but I don’t know, they’re both clearly worn out after the events that transpired a while ago. I just don’t see it. I don’t see a way for them to get back into this one!

Referee: Six!… Seven!

Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany grabbing onto the apron now and Charlie isn’t very far behind, can they do it?

Referee: Eight!… Nine!

Rich Russillo: BETHANY BLUE IS BACK IN THE RING!

Referee: TEN!

Rich Russillo: AND CHARLIE IS BACK IN! CHARLIE MADE IT IN THE RING JUST BARELY BEFORE THE REFEREE GOT TO TEN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THIS MATCH IS STILL ON!

James Peters: Both competitors now slowly getting back to their feet- AND BETHANY IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE SCHOOL BOY ON CHARLIE!

ONE! TWO!! THREE-

James Peters: CHARLIE KICKS OUT, BUT THERE’S THE TJD!! BETHANY MANAGED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CONDITION BOTH HER AND CHARLIE WERE IN BY SURPRISING HIM WITH THAT ROLL UP, BUT NOW SHE HAS AN ACTUAL CHANCE TO WIN THIS MATCH AND ADVANCE TO THE FINALS! DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH THE COVER, IS THAT IS, IS CHARLIE OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT!?

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

Rich Russillo: HE GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!! CHARLIE MANAGED TO GET HIS SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE, AND HONESTLY I CAN’T BELIEVE MY EYES! HOW COULD CHARLIE HAVE SURVIVED THAT!? HE SHOULD’VE BEEN FINISHED AFTER THE TJD, ESPECIALLY HAVING RECEIVED THE GRADE C2 OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT NO! THIS MATCH IS STILL ON, WHAT DOES BETHANY HAVE TO DO TO PUT CHARLIE AWAY!? Dr. Bethany Blue now arguing with the official that it was three, and I can’t blame her! Charlie couldn’t have come any closer than that!

James Peters: Bethany slowly pulling Charlie up to his feet now, and she has him in a front facelock. It’s clear that both of these superstars would do whatever it takes to get the win, and I think we’re about to see Bethany do something we don’t see her do often, AS SHE LIFTS CHARLIE UP INTO A SUPLEX POSITIO- NO! CHARLIE MANAGES TO DROP BACK DOWN TO HIS FEET BEFORE HITTING A NASTY HEADBUTT, CAUSING BETHANY TO STUMBLE INTO THE ROPES! BETHANY NOW REBOUNDING OFF OF THEM, AND SHE RESPONDS WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! CHARLIE FALLING BACK INTO THE ROPES HIMSELF- BUT HE BOUNCES OFF OF THEM CHARGING IN FULL SPEED! CHARING CROSS!!!

Rich Russillo: IT DOESN’T CONNECT!! BETHANY MANAGED TO DUCK IT LAST SECOND! THE REMEDY!! NO!! CHARLIE PUSHES HER AWAY! BETHANY TURNING AROUND AND CHARGING BACK IN THOUGH- RIGHT INTO THE HEADMASTER RITUAL!!! CHARLIE JUST CONNECTED WITH THE HEADMASTER RITUAL OUT OF NOWHERE, AND THE WHOLE ARENA MUST’VE FELT THE IMPACT OF THAT SPINEBUSTER! CHARLIE NOW COVERING BETHANY BLUE, AND THAT MAY BE IT FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! WE ALL KNOW MS. EXTREME’S FEELINGS ABOUT CHARLIE MARR, BUT I’M SURE SHE HAS A SMILE ON HER FACE SEEING BETHANY GO DOWN LIKE THIS!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

James Peters: NO!! THIS TIME IT’S BETHANY THAT SOMEHOW BARELY MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND IT, HOW DO THESE TWO MANAGE TO DO THIS!? BOTH OF THEM WANT TO WIN THIS MATCH SO BADLY, THEY’RE JUST NOT GIVING UP NO MATTER WHAT! CHARLIE JUST SLAMMED HIS HANDS ONTO THE MAT IN ANGER, AND YOU CAN IMAGINE JUST HOW FRUSTRATED HE MUST BE SEEING AS HE WAS NOT EVEN HALF OF A SECOND AWAY FROM ADVANCING TO THE FINALS! WHAT DO THESE TWO HAVE TO DO!?

Rich Russillo: That’s a question that we’re gonna have to find the answer to sooner or later, but at the time being I’m guessing it’s gonna be later. Neither competitor is willing to give up, even after all they’ve taken out of each other. Bethany slowly grabbing onto Charlie, seemingly trying to use him to pull herself back to her feet, but it’s clear that he’s ready to put this one away! Charlie slowly grabbing a hold of Bethany and pulling her back up- DROP YOUR DRAWERS! NO! CHARLIE STOPS WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN, A VERY REVEALING MOVE TO SAY THE LEAST AS HE LOOKS DOWN AT BETHANY! CHARLIE GRABBING AHOLD OF BETHANY- BUT NOW LOOK! BETHANY PULLS CHARLIE DOWN INTO A SMALL PACKAGE!

ONE! TWO-

James Peters: CHARLIE KICKS OUT AND BOTH COMPETITORS GET BACK UP! CHARLIE CHARGING TOWARDS BETHANY- BUT BETHANY SIDE STEPS CHARLIE AND SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! ONCE AGAIN CHARLIE’S SHOULDER WAS FORCED INTO THE POST, AND NOW BETHANY IS TRYING TO PULL CHARLIE ONTO THE GROUND! BETHANY SUCCESSFULLY PULLING CHARLIE DOWN ONTO HIS HANDS AND KNEES- AND SHE JUST STOMPED ONTO CHARLIE’S LEFT ARM! THAT ARM WENT THROUGH SOME DAMAGE GETTING SENT INTO THE RING POST TWICE, THAT COULDN’T HAVE HELPED A WHOLE LOT!

Rich Russillo: BETHANY NOW PULLING CHARLIE TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND OH MY GOD, THINGS COULDN’T HAVE GONE WORSE FOR CHARLIE! THE DISLOCATION IS LOCKED IN! CHARLIE HAS NOWHERE TO GO, HE’S OUT OF JORDIE’S REACH, AND THAT ARM IS ALREADY PRETTY DAMAGED! CHARLIE MIGHT JUST HAVE TO TAP OUT IF THIS CONTINUES! JORDIE IS TRYING TO REACH GRAB THE REFEREE’S ATTENTION BUT THE REF IS HAVING NONE OF IT AFTER WHAT WENT DOWN EARLIER! THE REFEREE IS FOCUSED ON THIS MATCH, AND THIS MATCH MAY BE OVER VERY SOON!

James Peters: CHARLIE IS STILL STRUGGLING, AND HE’S TRYING TO REACH FOR THOSE ROPES BUT IT’S CLEAR HE’S WAY TOO FAR TO GRAB THEM! IS THIS HOW THIS ONE ENDS!? IS DR. BETHANY BLUE GOING TO GET A SUBMISSION VICTORY OVER CHARLIE!? THIS WOULD BE HUGE FOR BETHANY, AND HER MOMENTUM WOULD SKYROCKET GOING INTO THE KING OF ELITE FINALS! WAIT, LOOK! CHARLIE IS SLOWLY MANAGING TO PULL HIS ARM OUT OF BETHANY’S GRASP- AND HE DOES IT! CHARLIE IS FREE OF THE ARMBAR AND HE IMMEDIATELY ROLLS BACK ONTO HIS FEET! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE BACK UP- BUT CHARLIE NAILS BETHANY WITH A BIG BOOT!

Rich Russillo: Bethany hanging onto the ropes in order to even stand right now, but Charlie looks fed up. It’s clear he wants to finish this one, but what’s he planning? Bethany turning around, AND THERE’S A KNEE RIGHT INTO HER FACE! BETHANY NOW ROLLING OUT ONTO THE APRON, BUT CLEARLY CHARLIE DOESN’T SEEM TO MIND AS HE PULLS HER INTO THE RING FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE! IS THIS IT FOR BETHANY!? NO FACE, NO CASE!!! IT CONNECTS, AND BETHANY LOOKS LIKE SHE’S DONE! THE COVER NOW BY CHARLIE, THIS MATCH HAS TO BE OVER!

ONE! TWO!! THREE-

James Peters: ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? COME ON! BETHANY ONCE AGAIN MANAGES TO FIND A WAY TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AND CHARLIE AT THIS POINT IS JUST YELLING AT THE REFEREE! I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE HARSH WORDS HE MUST BE USING, BUT I CAN SEE WHY HE’S FURIOUS ONCE AGAIN! IF I’M BEING HONEST, I THOUGHT THAT WAS THREE!

Rich Russillo: Well it doesn’t matter now if it was three or not! This match is still going, and Charlie needs to make it so Bethany can’t get her shoulder up at all! I will say, after this performance, it’s clear to see just why Dr. Bethany Blue is Interwire Champion. She may do some questionable things during her matches when she needs to, but what we’re seeing here is the heart of a Champion!

James Peters: Maybe so, but what does it matter how much heart you have if you can’t even fight back? Charlie picking Bethany up now, and now he’s just toying with her! Charlie with a kick to the midsection, causing Bethany to immediately drop down to a knee, and things definitely aren’t looking good for her! Charlie tossing her into the corner, AND NOW HE CHARGES IN- BUT BETHANY DIVES OUT OF THE CORNER! BETHANY RUNNING IN AT CHARLIE, RUNNING FOREARM SMASH IN THE CORNER! BETHANY RUNNING TO THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE BEFORE CHARGING BACK IN, AND THERE’S A SECOND!

Rich Russillo: BETHANY RUNNING BACK ONCE AGAIN, AND THERE’S A THIR- NO! CHARLIE WITH A BOOT STOPS BETHANY IN HER TRACKS!! CHARLIE NOW PULLING HIMSELF ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND THERE’S THE DIVING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! DEATH OR GLORY CONNECTS, BUT CHARLIE ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER THIS TIME! CHARLIE INSTEAD BACKING INTO THE CORNER, AND HE’S YELLING FOR BETHANY TO GET BACK UP! BETHANY HAS TO BE DONE FOR AFTER THAT UPPERCUT, WHATEVER HE’S PLANNING NOW HAS TO LEAD TO THE END OF THIS MATCH!

James Peters: BETHANY IS SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO HER FEET, AND YOU’VE GOT TO ADMIRE HER PERFORMANCE EVEN IF THIS IS THE END FOR HER! BETHANY BACK UP, AND NOW CHARLIE CHARGES IN! CHARING CROS- CODE BLUE!!! BETHANY JUST HIT THE CODE BLUE!!! THE HEART PUNCH CONNECTS!! SHE COULDN’T FULLY SET IT UP AS SHE SEEMED TO HIT IT OUT OF DESPERATION, BUT SHE GOT ALL OF THAT HEART PUNCH! CHARLIE IS OUT, AND NOW BETHANY FALLS ON TOP OF HIM! BETHANY HAS THE COVER, SHE’S ADVANCING TO THE FINALS FOR SURE!

ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!

Rich Russillo: JORDIE PULLED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING!!! THE REFEREE WAS TAKEN OUT JUST BEFORE THIS MATCH COULD END, AND LOOK HOW HARD HE LANDED! THE REFEREE IS OUT! BETHANY SHOULD BE ADVANCING TO THE FINALS RIGHT NOW, BUT JORDIE RUINED THAT BY TAKING OUT THE OFFICIAL! I DON’T EVEN THINK BETHANY REALIZES WHAT’S HAPPENED YET!

James Peters: WELL IF SHE DIDN’T BEFORE SHE CERTAINLY DOES NOW! DR. BETHANY BLUE WAS SCREWED OVER, AND EVEN NOW CHARLIE HASN’T GOTTEN UP YET! I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE WHAT’S GOING THROUGH THE HEAD OF DR. BETHANY BLUE RIGHT ABOUT NOW! SHE SHOULD BE IN THE FINALS, BUT NOW HER CHANCE MAY HAVE JUST GONE UP IN SMOKE- WAIT! OH MY GOD! WHO IS- IT’S MS. EXTREME!! MS. EXTREME HOPPED THE BARRICADE AND SHE JUST PULLED BETHANY OUT OF THE RING!

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME MAY HAVE JUST INDIRECTLY GAVE CHARLIE A CHANCE TO COME BACK IN THIS MATCH AS SHE JUST THREW DR. BETHANY BLUE INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! BETHANY BLUE LOOKS ALMOST OUT COLD BUT CAMILLE ISN’T STOPPING THERE AS NOW SHE’S JUST STOMPING AWAY AT THE DOCTOR! WAIT, SECURITY IS HERE! THANK GOD!

James Peters: SECURITY TACKLES MS. EXTREME AND SHE FIGHTS THEM OFF! SHE STARTS STRIKING EVERYONE WHO GETS IN HER WAY! DR. BLUE CLIMBS BACK INTO THE RING, TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM MS. EXTREME, AND DR. BLUE LOOKS COMPLETELY SHAKEN!!!! SHE IS HOLDING HER HEAD AND CHECKS FOR BLOOD! THE DOCTOR IS BLEEDING FROM WHERE HER HEAD HIT THOSE STEPS. CHARLIE MARR IS BACK TO HIS KNEES AND HE SEES ALL THE COMMOTION GOING ON! MORE SECURITY HAS RUSHED DOWN HERE AND THEY HAVE FORCED MS. EXTREME TO THE GROUND!

Rich Russillo: JORDIE IS SHAKING THE REFEREE AND HELPING HIM BACK UP. CHARLIE SEES THE DOCTOR BACK TO HER FEET AND HE ROLLS HER UP FROM BEHIND! CHARLIE HAS THE TIGHTS!

James Peters: NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS!

Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE IS BACK IN THE RING AND CHARLIE HAS PLACED ALL HIS WEIGHT DOWN ON BETHANY! THE REFEREE IS IN POSITION AND STARTS COUNTING!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND 2020 KING OF ELITE FINALIST… CHARLIE MARR!!!

(The crowd erupts in jeers as Charlie quickly gets out of the ring and grabs Jordie in his arms, twirling her around.)

James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue just got robbed of a spot in the King of Elite finals thanks to Ms. Extreme and the sick part of this is, I don’t even think Ms. Extreme realizes what she’s done! She just sent her arch nemesis to the finals of the most prestigious tournament in this industry because she couldn’t wait for King of Elite to get her hands on Dr. Blue! I don’t even know what to say!

Rich Russillo: Dr. Blue’s undefeated streak just got snapped at ten, and look at the Doc. She is in the middle of the ring in utter disbelief.

(The camera closes in on the distraught and bloody face of Dr. Bethany Blue. She can’t seem to wrap her head around what just happened. Outside of the ring, Charlie and Jordie are celebrating like they just won the Superbowl when both of them know they damn sure didn’t earn the trip to the finals. Police officers have come down and one is pressing Ms. Extreme’s face into the mat, while another roughly jerks her arms behind her back and handcuff her. They haul Ms. Extreme up to her feet and she’s in a position to face Dr. Bethany Blue.)

(Dr. Blue looks at Ms. Extreme with nothing but rage in her baby brown eyes. She is breathing heavily, tears threatening to spill down her tan cheeks because she’s so angry at the moment. Ms. Extreme, handcuffed and held by police, is smirking, and that smirk seems to enrage Dr. Blue even more. She rolls out of the and steps up to Ms. Extreme, unable to think of anything to say.)

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST HAULED OFF AND PUNCHED MS. EXTREME RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!

(The punch connects with Ms. Extreme’s nose and mouth, and her head violently jerks to the side. Another officer grabs Dr. Blue and hauls her away before she attacks Ms. Extreme, and ‘The Red Queen’ spits a mouthful of blood on the ground. The officer holding her turns her around and marches her up the ramp in handcuffs.)

(All the while Charlie and Jordie have climbed back in the ring, and Charlie is watching all of this play out with joy in his eyes. Jordie is clinging to him and smiling because thanks to the selfish actions of Camille Jane Ava they are headed to Rome, and Charlie Marr really does have the chance to become the undisputed King of Elite Answers Wrestling.)

(EAW logo buzzes.)
