(EAW intro plays.)

(As per a recap of last week is shown to kick off Sunday Night Voltage: Harper Lee arrives on Voltage before being confronted by Hikari Kanno whose simps jump her in the parking lot while Hikari leaves Harper for dead.

Myles has an interview before beating Jake Smith in the main event which ends the show and the recap.)

(Sunday Night Voltage then goes to the Phoenix Suns Arena. Pyro is seen shooting out from the stage while the crowd cheers loudly amongst the sounds of ’33rd Blakk Glass’ by ZilaKami & SosMula blasting through the speakers of the arena. The camera then goes over to show the commentary team.)

Rich Russillo: We are at the home stretch folks, coming to you live from Phoenix, Arizona with a jampacked episode of SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE!!!

Persephone: WITH NO FUCKING MATCHES. WHAT’S THE POINT???

James Peters: Well, technically there are matches :wow:. We’ll be having rewind matches from the entire Season that I’m sure everyone will enjoy. Along with that I’m sure there will be a lot more Pain For Pride matchups that continue to develop especially considering we’re a week away from the event itself! Even without matches, this is truly an exciting night, and I can’t wait for what’s up first!

(Sunday Night Voltage then goes from the commentary booth to the stage while the sounds of ‘Zombie’ by Bad Wolves begin to blast through the speakers of the arena. The camera then focuses on Ms. Extreme as she’s seen making her way out from the backstage area and to the stage with a mix of cheers and boos that follow her. She scans the crowd with a stern expression present on her face before she focuses her attention on the ring in front of her. After a moment, she then begins to make her way down the ramp with a microphone in her hand.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Well the events of last week certainly don’t have Ms. Extreme as much of a happy camper at the moment. Near the end of her match with Drake King against The Off-Brand Amphetamines, Usagi Senshi interfered and attacked the Unified Tag Team Champions. While it looks like this match was going to go to Ms. Extreme and Drake, Chris Elite came off of commentary and took advantage of the situation by attacking her.

James Peters: I’m sure Ms. Extreme is going to have something to say about that. The two of them have been trading jabs at one another for the past few weeks and especially this close to Pain For Pride, it is definitely going to be heated. It looks like Ms. Extreme is kicking off the show to get her last words in before their match against one another, so I’m really interested in what she has to say.

Persephone: Why? Ms. Extreme versus Chris Elite is quite literally the ‘creative has nothing for you’ matchup that nobody wants to see. We could’ve gone a week without them but noooo now they want a PFP match. Well, you can fuck right off with that.

(Ms. Extreme makes her way around the ring before heading up the steel steps and onto the apron. She then enters the ring and steps towards the center of the ring, taking one last look around while ‘Zombie’ from there begins to come to a close. She then brings her microphone up to her mouth and begins to speak towards the crowd.)

Ms. Extreme: You want to hear about it don’t you? Well, let me tell you upfront, all that bald motherfucker had to do last week was sit on commentary and mind his own business. But he just had to put his grubby little hands into my match and ruin it by taking the opportunity to attack me. Am I mad? Of course, but in the end, I’m the one that said that this is Pain For Pride Season. At this point, especially a week away, I should know to expect anything. But despite that whole brawl that went down last week, I think it’s obvious to say that I’m still standing and I’m more than ready for Pain For Pride. But Chris Elite, on the other hand, I don’t think he’s ready for it, because after everything that’s happened between the two of us… he has no clue what he is getting himself into. A few weeks ago when I came out to the ring and challenged Chris, I stated up front that I wanted a worthwhile PFP victory for myself and he would be just the person for that. And since then Chris has done everything that he can to try and get on my bad side, from calling me out for blasphemous claims to attacking me from behind, thinking that he can get away with it… as if that ever ended well for anybody.

Ms. Extreme: Every time someone tries to come up and provoke me or make an example out of me, one way or another it always ends with me kicking their asses and leaving them staring up at the lights. I have shown constantly that I am far from a pushover, that I’m not just going to let myself get bitched as other people would. I’m going to stand my ground and show you verbally and physically just how much you managed to fuck up. That’s been how it is for years now, and if Chris suddenly decides that he wants to be next in line, thinking that the same thing isn’t going to happen to him. Well then Chris, that’s perfectly fine by me. The only thing you’ve done is fire me up and you don’t want to see what happens when I am. But let’s cut all this, I’m sure all of you want to see how he’s going to respond to this, and believe me, I do too. So Chris, how about you get your ass out here and we can settle this mano a mano.

(Ms. Extreme makes her way over to the corner and takes a seat up on the top turnbuckle. She waits patiently and looks towards the stage, and before long her demands are met with the sounds of ‘Invincible’ by Pop Smoke being heard blasting through the speakers of the arena. The camera goes over to the stage to show Chris Elite making his way out to the ring with a sarcastically skeptical look on his face. He has a microphone in his hand while he looks towards Ms. Extreme inside the ring, scoffing before then beginning to make his way down the ramp.)

Rich Russillo: Well here comes the EAW Hall of Famer and right now, I don’t think he’s buying what Ms. Extreme is selling. There is no doubt that their interactions as the weeks progress have gotten much more heated and the two of them might just implode right here and now. But I think Chris believes he’s going to be the one that comes out on top at Pain for Pride, not at all phased with what Ms. Extreme is trying to warn her about right now.

James Peters: Will that be a mistake on his part? Well, I guess we’ll just have to find out. But if there’s one thing we can say for certain it’s the fact that whatever Chris says right now isn’t going to be very kind.

Persephone: Ah no shit doofus. I just want this over with while we still have our ears intact.

(Chris slides right into the ring and looks toward Ms. Extreme with a smirk on his face. He takes a step back towards the center of the ring while ‘Invincible’ from there begins to come to a close. He shakes his head while bringing his microphone up and beginning to speak.)

Chris Elite: Shit you actually think you’re doing something huh? :mjlol: You think imma walk out here all scared and intimidated of you and take your threats seriously, get the fuck out of here. Now I’m not gonna front when I say that at first I was in the same boat as you. A motherfucker wasn’t getting a World Title shot so really I just wanted a good match at Pain For Pride, didn’t matter who, just mattered that I was going to make people pay attention. So it was nice and all to see you come out share that feeling with me, and then… you thought it was funny to be a dickeater and attack me because “iT’S PaIn FoR PRIdE” fuck outta here with that. So it’s like you said beloved, you can’t blame me for anything I’ve done. I ain’t say shit that wasn’t true and the fact you denying what I said two weeks ago so much tells me you’re trying to cope with that. But most importantly, I also haven’t done anything that you wouldn’t have done yourself, so it’s funny to me how you’re the one coming out here and crying about it. Like come the fuck on.

Ms. Extreme: I wasn’t crying about shit, and you wish that anything you said was true Chris. So what? After you accepted my challenge I punched you in the jaw, it sounds like you’re the one that’s crying about it if you’re out here calling me a dickeater. Just because you couldn’t handle that, you’ve spent these past few weeks trying to belittle me and beat me down when all I’ve done is go about my business as usual because I know Pain For Pride is where it’ll all go down. But now YOU want to say that I’m the one that’s wrong, YOU want to say I’m a dickeater, YOU want to accuse me of being a petty bitch when really the only petty bitch in this situation is the one I’m looking at right now. The logic is flawed Chris yet you want to do the same thing that you’ve always done and say what you want to believe, and at Pain For Pride I’m going to pin your shoulders to the mat for the three and leave you in the same place that you’ve been at for years, and that’s rock bottom.

Chris Elite: You don’t think I have a right to be mad? Shit what happened two weeks ago wasn’t even because of you punching me, you out here sticking your tongue down that fucking bozo Drake King’s throat and he out here no-showing matches and punting old fucks. Just because I called you out for it doesn’t mean you have to get so defensive, because I think you’ve made it painfully obvious the type of person you are. But you know what, you do you. When I beat you at Pain For Pride I just want you to know one thing and one thing only, I was right, bitch-

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME JUST GRABBED AROUND THE WAIST OF CHRIS ELITE AND RAMMED HIM INTO THE CORNER! AND NOW SHE BEGINS TO ABSOLUTELY HAMMER AWAY WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS TOWARDS HIS HEAD WHILE CHRIS IS LEFT ON THE DEFENSE! MS. EXTREME HAS HEARD ENOUGH AND NOW THIS HAS SPIRALED INTO A BRAWL! CHRIS SHOVES MS. EXTREME AWAY, BUT BEFORE HE CAN DO ANYTHING SHE RUNS FORWARD AND ATTEMPTS A FOREARM STRIKE IN THE CORNER- BUT CHRIS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY OF THAT BEFORE STEPPING OFF OF THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A KNEE TO THE SKULL! CHRIS THEN GRABS MS. EXTREME AND THROWS HER DOWN TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND TURNS AROUND, BEFORE GOING FOR A KNEE THIS TIME LEAPING HIGH INTO THE AIR! CHRIS ATTEMPTING ‘OPEN YA MATA’ TO TAKE MS. EXTREME DOWN!

James Peters: BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO BRING HER BOOT UP SENDING CHRIS TUMBLING DOWN TO THE CANVAS! CHRIS TRIES TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET, BUT BEFORE HE CAN IT’S MS. EXTREME THAT GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND PLANTS HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A BULLDOG! SHE ISN’T DONE THOUGH AS SHE TURNS AROUND AND RUNS TO THE ROPES… BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A LEG DROP RIGHT ON THE SKULL OF CHRIS ELITE! MS. EXTREME NOW TURNS AROUND AND BEGINS TO MAKE HER WAY UP TO THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING DOWN AT HER TARGET WHICH IS TRYING TO RECOVER BUT IT MIGHT BE TOO LATE FOR THAT! WHAT COULD SHE BE GOING FOR RIGHT HERE…

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND GOES FOR ‘A BLIND FURY’! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP-

Persephone: But Chris manages to rub his two lone brain cells together and dodge the very predictable move by rolling out of the ring, hah look at the way she landed!

(Ms. Extreme lands feet first on the canvas upon attempting the aerial move and ends up stumbling forward before dipping down to a knee. She clutches at her right ankle, clearly hurt after the uneasy landing and it immediately brings into question the severity of it. Outside the ring Chris is trying to recover while he looks inside the ring and sees her nursing her wound, pointing at her and smirking. Ms. Extreme looks at that and shakes off the injury before slowly getting up to her feet, ever so slightly limping.)

Ms. Extreme: (Off-Mic) Come Pain for Pride, I won’t miss.

Chris Elite: (Off-Mic) Okay Joso, fuck outta here.

(The two of them lock eyes in an intense stareoff, with the animosity still brewing between the two of them whilst the situation begins to slowly calm down. Chris begins to back up to ramp slowly, beginning to make his way towards the backstage area, and it’s the last shot seen before Sunday Night Voltage begins to fade elsewhere.)

(The camera slowly panned around the area showing the night sky filled with all kinds of beautiful stars. From what it could gather, the camera showed it was on what seemed to be the rooftop of an apartment complex. It finally stopped to show Jay Jerry Johnson sitting in the middle of the rooftop on a chair, simply looking up at the sky and watching the stars. He was at his home simply thinking to himself and chatting with his sister Anna Wautier on the phone. There was a sad expression on his face, not in the best of moods because of how up and down his 2022 has been. Jay exhaled tiredly, putting his phone away and crossing his arms before finally turning to look at the camera and beginning to speak up.)

Jay Jerry Johnson: From the beginning, I thought I would have a great year at EAW. I thought I was going to have a chance that would elevate me like others. Nevertheless, I’ve committed too many mistakes, and now I stand here feeling like a useless piece of shit. Isn’t that what you guys like about me? Isn’t that how you want to see me be? Does this look entertaining enough for you guys?! In the end, I can’t blame anybody but myself because if I didn’t make that decision, I would’ve been on the top like the others who have beaten me. If you ask me, it’s not easy to be here. A rookie in the Cash In The Vault match, I don’t think many guys on the same level as I could do that, now doesn’t that surprise you? I should feel proud about that but two CITV preview matches happened by this point and you know the result…Jay Jerry Johnson lost, lost, lost, lost and lost, over and over again until the end of time, it really seems like being a loser is my lifestyle these days. Of course, nothing forced me to lose; I did it myself, and the person I am supposed to blame here is me. Many opportunities that I’ve tried to get, I fumbled. The New Breed Title, King of Elite, Briefcases, No.1 Contendership for the New Breed title, New Era Cup, Grand Rampage…

Jay Jerry Johnson: Now enters the Cash In The Vault match at Pain For Pride 15. I always demanded to win all those matches I just mentioned, but as I said, I failed to make those wishes come true. I was unable to take what I wanted, and what people said about me came true, I always fail to take what I am determined to make mine. I really wish I could stand here as the New Breed Champion, I want to stand here as the New Era Cup finalist…I made so many wishes…And I failed to make all of them come true. As that being said, I’m tired of playing with this. I’m tired of the way my career is treated. I’m tired of being a fucking loser, I’m going to make a change, I’m taking a damn stand. I’m not going to make any wishes like a little kid anymore…I am DESTINED to win this. I don’t want my Pain for Pride moment just to be my pipedream because I DEMAND to unhook that briefcase! I don’t care what others have to say about my luck in this match. If there is anybody who wants that, they will have to stop me. If they think they are preventing me from taking that briefcase, they must try harder because I’m walking into this match as the strongest JJJ they will ever see. This is the Jay Jerry Johnson that is not like the others that you have seen in the past. It’s not the guy who took a chill pill during his week against Lucas Johnson. It’s not the guy who ALMOST beat someone- The version of Jay Jerry Johnson who is going to enter this match? It’s the guy who woke up being tired of all the bullshit and finally wanted to turn his luck around! I’m not participating in this match to earn any respect or reputation; I received this opportunity and I MUST MAKE IT WORTH IT.

(Jay facepalms pathetically and lets out a small sigh. He feels tired about what he has been through so far but he is a little proud that he finally made it here to this point.)

Jay Jerry Johnson: People can say whatever they want about me competing in this match but don’t be sad, don’t be mad if the guy you’re laughing and joking about becomes Cash In The Vault Briefcase holder…YOU WILL BE THE ONE TO GET LAUGHED AT INSTEAD. YOU WILL BE THE ONE WHO WILL TWEET ABOUT HOW GOOD I AM EVEN THOUGH YOU HATE TO SEE IT. YOU WILL BE THE ONE THAT WILL CRY ME A FUCKING RIVER!!! For any of you who still want to doubt me winning this match, keep going. You won’t be able to sing the same song once the tables turn. If you have no idea who I truly am, don’t try to spill fake beans about anything with my name on it…BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ME. If you don’t know who the fuck I really am, then shut the fuck up! There is no need for any of you to call for attention and try to get on my fucking nerves! “Oh, but people were rig-“ Nah, I wish they were right but THEY WERE ALL WRONG. NONE OF THEM LISTEN TO ME AND I’M TIRED OF BEING OVERLOOKED BY THESE PEOPLE…

(Jay turned to the side, kicking away the chair and punching the door that led to the rooftop. Jay leaned his head against the wall and looked down to the floor, he took a deep breath and tried to cool his temper. Jay shook his head, looking back to the camera and continuing to speak.)

Jay Jerry Johnson: I want to remind EAW again who I really am. It’s not because I “lost a lot” that makes me have zero chan- Oh well, maybe, but…did I leave? Did I sign a resignation like those jobbers who showed no respect or signs of hard work towards this company? No, and that’s because I did that shit EVERY SINGLE FUCKING DAY. I came out here, busted my ass for you guys and I still got paid with no respect from any of you! Yeah, I lost thousands of times, but did I not work hard enough for this? Did I not beat enough people to be in this position? Did I not do anything to earn this spot?! No, I did EVERYTHING to be here, I sacrificed my life every single day in that ring, for all of this, and all of you still hate me just because “eh, Jay, maybe you are bad at this”, and how do YOU know? None of you know about this shit! I tried to give people my genuine reasons about me and what I have done. I wanted to tell the TRUTH about me but nobody listened to me…And you know what? Fuck them hoes! If none of you don’t want to pick me as your winner? Fine, don’t blame me if I win tho…But you can thank me later if you still have some faith in me- After what I just said, I’m still going to say that I’m not doing this to save this business, make my fans happy, or turn over a new leaf. That’s not how it works for me because, despite all of this, I still believe I am a star here. I am basically doing this for myself; It’s all about me. Everything happens in my story, my destiny & my career. Just like what is going to happen at Pain For Pride 15, I’m going to write my story that no one else can ink, determine my destiny without having someone point me in the direction, and elevate my career to the next level, and yes, that line was indeed intentional. I will make this precious moment become MY Pain For Pride moment. None of the people in this match know how hard I worked to become a guy who has a chance to compete in this match. I don’t care if they want to doubt my chances of winning in this match, I am going to clear all those question marks and show who will be the one laughing at the end…Because you won’t even see it coming. None of you won’t be able to catch the clout. None of you will ever doubt me again once the CITV briefcase is in my hands. I’ve been waiting the whole fucking season for this moment and you think I am not going to put everything on the line to achieve it? Do you think I see no value in this match? Do you think I’m going to put nothing into this match instead of all of my effort?! WRONG, WRONG, AND WRONG! That’s why I’m here. That’s why I’m here to clear the gray clouds in the sky before the rainfall pours down. That’s why I’m here to make sure that people are watching me winning this. I’m not going to let this match be another day that I’m going out there and lose. I…AM HERE TO WIN THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE AND NO MATTER WHERE MY CHANCES STAND ON, I’M STILL GOING TO GET WHAT’S UP THERE IN THE SKY BECAUSE NONE OF YOU CAN STOP ME FROM MAKING MY FUCKING MOMENT…And if you want to stop me, then you better catch me…if you can.

(Jay turned his back to the camera and put the chair back on its spot from before. He sat down again and continued to watch the night sky filled with stars as Voltage faded away back to the arena.)

[SCREENBAR: BLOODSPORT 2021 – DRAKE KING VS. JUSTIN WINDGATE; CHAINSAW DEATHMATCH FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP]

(Sunday Night Voltage then goes to a recap of the deeply personal feud between Drake King and Justin Windgate last year. It shows Drake attacking Justin and mercilessly leaving him for dead, then transitions to the stipulation unveil, where the two brawled upon hearing the stipulation. Drake King raced up the ramp as Justin Windgate was shown wielding a chainsaw inside the ring. The promo package ends with a shot of the two men standing face to face, this feud was extremely personal.)

(Bella Braxton is shown inside the ring.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN…THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS THE MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING AND IT IS FOR THE EAW WORLDDDDDD CHAMPIONSHIPPPPPP!!!!

(NOW Arena is electric and goes crazy as Bella Braxton once more begins to speak.)

Bella Braxton: THIS MATCH WILL ALSO BE CONTESTED AS A CHAINSAWWWWW DEATHMATCHHHHHH!!!!

(NOW Arena cheers loudly as the shot fades to the Voltage commentary team.)

James Peters: OH, BOY! I’m ready for this one! Justin Windate challenges Drake King for the EAW World Championship in a Chainsaw Deathmatch! Drake wasn’t happy with the stipulation, but could this rivalry really have ended any other way?! The disdain these two men seem to hold for one another is incredibly deep and blood will be spilled tonight! They’ll live up to the event’s namesake and more, I’m sure!

Rich Russillo: No doubt about that, these two men have made this very personal and for Justin Windgate, it’s about achieving the dream he’s always had and finally jumping through that one hoop that has seemingly eluded him in his returning run in EAW. The one crown jewel spot in this company, to be the standbeared and be the face of all it represents. He’s fighting for history tonight.

Rich Russillo: For Drake King? It’s the opposite, yet the same in the sense that Drake is thinking beyond the match and title itself. Drake knows that a win here once more secures New Eden’s place in EAW as the most influential, impactul, shot-calling group and possibly most dominant trio this company has ever seen. If they stay on top, EAW stays under their rule of law and their ideologies are what EAW then represents.

Rich Russillo: But either way, they’re both fighting for something more than just the title. This is legacy, history and power. This is where legends are born. This is everything.

Persephone: This is the corny boy-hood hard work dream shit against a crazy White guy with long hair and made up religions. Hopefully this is violent and quick!

James Peters: This match will shape the future of EAW as we know it and either result has a massive impact on the landscape of this brand. I couldn’t be more excited for two of the best out there to share the ring in the most violent fashion possible. We’re in for a treat, ladies and gentleman. A very violent one.

(‘High All The Time’ by 50 Cent bounces throughout the speakers as the NOW arena explodes for the challenger. Justin Windgate, head to toe dressed in a sparkly white vest, tights and boots, makes his way onto the stage. He’s overwhelmed by the bright reaction and waves to the crowd. Justin Windgate walks over to EAW staff on the side of the stage and is handed an expensive bong. He takes a big hit from the bong, blows the smoke down the ramp and eagerly makes his way down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF DETROIT, MICHIGANNNNNNNNNN!!! WEIGHHING IN AT 225 POOOUUNNDSSS, HE IS THE CHALLENGERRRR, JUSSTINNNMNNNNNNN ‘THE EXTREEEEMMMMEEEE CLASSICCCCC’ WINDGATTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(NOW arena explodes for Justin Windgate as he waves to them and walks purposefully down the ramp.)

Rich Russillo: He said it himself earlier this week, this is a 12 year dream come to life. He’s worked endlessly for this moment and it won’t be ripped away from him. Justin Windgate is coming into this match as the best he’s ever been and by a lot, he’s trained and prepared for this one sole moment and match. Fit the glove for this one opponent and has readied himself for a dark stipulation tonight. He knows if he can claim the EAW World title, everything will have been worth it. He’s achieved what nobody said he would and he always believed he would.

James Peters: Absolutely and he has all the skills to do it, apart from maybe getting high before the match apparently, Justin is the perfect bundle of athleticism, technical wrestling and hard-hitting offense. He’s as durable as they come and doesn;t go out until the kitchen sink has been shattered over his skull and then rebuilt again, just so it can be broken over his head one more time. He stays alive and he perseveres and tonight, he’s going to have to. Not only against the champion, but against the pressure of the moment. He’s gotta be feeling the heat from this crowd and the butterflies in his stomach. He’s worked his life for this moment, he won’t let it escape him.

Rich Russillo: You hit it spot on, he just knows that he can’;t let it escape his grasp. He’ll stay in this until his heart gives out, he just won’t quit on this dream. And he believes his will to overcome is stronger than Drakes and that Drake won’t stop his ability to persevere and come back stronger. But there’s perseverance and then there’s chainsaw deathmatches, in this match, there truly may be no coming back…
(The people cheer as he rolls into the ring and stands on the second rope, posing for the crowd and absorbing their energy. He drops to the canvas, removes his vest and throws it to the outside, he’s ready for the match.)

(‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer begins to play as the world’s focus shifts to the entrance ramp and this arena boos the arrival of the champion. Drake King, dressed entirely in a red and black attire, puffy red leather jacket with a fur lining. Dragging the title on the stage floor, Drake King with no expression, walks onto the stage and gazes out to the crowd.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, WEIGHING IN AT 220 POOOUNDDSSSS!!!! WRESTLING OUT OF THE DEAD SEA, ISRAAAAELLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! HE IS THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONNNNNNNNNNNN, DRAKKKKEEEEEEEEEE ‘THE REDEEEEEMMMMEEEERRRRRRRRRR’!!!!!

(Crowd loudly boos and chants against Drake as he drops the title on the stage and holds his arms out wide. He absorbs all the boos and expressionlessly looks down the ramp into the ring. He picks the title up and drags it down the ramp.)

Rich Russillo: The champ, ladies and gents! The champ! Listen, Drake King doesn’t need to have some childhood dream of being champion to make his reign the stuff of legend. Everything this man does is the stuff of legend and right now, he’s going out ther to establish New Eden’s role as the top faction in EAW and the ones who will shape EAW’s future in their own image. This is bigger than the belt to him, clearly, he couldn’t care less about a gold paperweight, it’s the platform it provides that Drake looks to once more claim.

Persephone: He could just be a liar? He’s feeling all bloated and special because he ended Malcolm Jones’ shortlived career in EAW, something not so great to feel special about. He wants to come off as being someone deeper than he is, but he’s doing it for the same reason Justin is, they’re two puppy dogs and they wanna know who the weaker chihuahua is.

James Peters: I don’t think that’s right..and to doubt Drake’s motives after he’s been so staunchly fighting for them for months now is just foolish to me. They may be insane and outlandish, but he’s clearly got the skills to bring them to fruition and shape EAW in his vision. Glean his insights on this entire company and right now, he’s sitting on the throne and nobody has touched him yet. For Justin WIndgate to take his title tonight, that would be tremendous, but you know Drake won’t give this up without a brutal and long-lasting fight, even then, Drake has no quit in him. No matter how you feel about him, he’s got an iron-will.

Rich Russillo: Absolutely and he’ll need it all tonight. They both will. This one is for all the marbles and this one will decide who leads EAW into the future of the new world. This is it.

(The two men stand face to face as Drake throws the title to the referee. They stand nose to nose and are separated by the referee. They ready themselves and the timekeeper rings the bell, indicating the start of the match.)

DING! DING! DING!

Rich Russillo: And your main event is underway! Drake King and Justin Windgate for the EAW World Championship in a Chainsaw Deathmatch!!

James Peters: Justin Windgate immediately takes the center, trying to beat Drake King to the punch, Drake is able to roll under the bottom rope and out to the floor. Drake is smiling at Justin, cracking his neck and walking around the outside, but Justin wants a fight! He slides under the bottom rope and out towards Drake, Justin Windgate will offer the champion no quarter!

Rich Russillo: He’s running after Drake King now, sliding into the ring after him and Drake goes for a lariat on Justin! Justin Windgate ducks under the clothesline attempt and grabs onto Drake King, Windgate looking to counter with a hip toss! Drake rolls through and takes Justin to the canvas with him, the two men get up and Drake meets him with a stiff clothesline this time around! That one dropped Justin to the canvas and the champion stares down at the challenger with malicious intent! He’s asserting his dominance right here!

Persephone: Pause. :dababy:

Rich Russillo: You know what I mean! He’s showing him who the boss is!

James Peters:…Anyway. Justin pops back up to his feet and drops a nasty right hook on the chin of Drake King! That one put him on wobbly legs, Justin pushes Drake against the ropes and looks for a spinning back kick to the gut of Drake King! Drake side steps him and catches the leg of Justin Windgate, delivering a sharp elbow to the side of Justin’s knee! Drake now with another vicious elbow to the side of Justin’s leg, he’s tearing at that knee!

Rich Russillo: Smart strategy from the champion, weaken the challenger’s base and take him out later! That’s why he’s the champ! He’s smarter than everyone else! Justin rips his leg away and jabs Drake King’s nose! A quick jab from Justin, who clutches at his knee and then stomps his foot to the canvas, he says he’s all good! Now Drake and Justin meet in the center of the ring and are face to face! These two have been spitting venom all week long and this rivalry has become personal!

James Peters: It’s a chainsaw deathmatch, I don’t know how it could be any other way! They are nose to nose and snarling at one another! Justin Windgate is forehead to forehead with Drake King and Drake grabs him by the chin and shoves him back! Drake leaps forward with a jumping knee strike that Justin avoids, narrowly evading the Drake King attack! Justin has a hold of Drake and he sits him down on the canvas with a snapmare! Windgate has the champion down and now he’s running off the ropes, Justin Windgate launches himself towards the champion with a sliding knee!!

Rich Russillo: NO! Drake King rolls out of the way and takes the back of the challenger, both coming off the ropes- Wait! Justin holds on and Drake loses his grip, tumbling back into the canvas and quickly getting to his feet! Here comes Justin again, running towards Drake! Drake King places a hard boot into the midsection of Justin, stopping him dead in his tracks! Now perhaps looking for a suplex! He’s got him in the air! Drake suspending Justin for a vertical suplex- Justin is able to drop a knee onto the head of Drake and get back to the canvas! But Drake with a knee of his own to the stomach of Justin, now suspending him again! THIS TIME HE TURNS IT INTO A FALCON ARROW! DROPPING WINDGATE TO THE CANVAS, HARD!

James Peters: WOW! What a transition from Drake, who now gets to his feet and stares stoically into the camera! He’s doing this for more than himself, he’s come prepared for New Eden!

Rich Russillo: For the good of EAW!

Persephone: He’s the champion and using two other successful elitists to cozy up against so he doesn’t have to worry about more competition, he’s a fraud if I’ve ever seen one.

James Peters: Justin Windgate now using the ropes to get to the turnbuckles, but Drake isn’t letting up! He’s relentless! Drake pressing a forearm against the jaw of Justin Windgate, now pushing a boot against the throat of the challenger! Justin Windgate is clawing to get Drake’s boot off him, but Drake still holds the pressure on Justin! An unforgiving as ever Drake King tonight, he takes his foot off the neck of Justin and the challenger drops to a knee! Drake doesn’t need weapons to inflict pain!

Rich Russillo: Justin is still trying to catch his breath, but Drake drops a punch on the back of Windgate that puts him down to both knees! Now lining up for the superkick, another boot to the jaw of Windgate perhaps! Drake fires the superkick- But Windgate rolls out of the way and manages to get back to the turnbuckles! Drake rushes in and Windgate quickly jumps over the top rope and out to the apron! Drake King catching himself before hitting that corner too hard, Justin nails him with an enziguri! Justin Windgate with a big enzuigiri from the apron and that one sent Drake King stumbling back!

James Peters: Here goes Justin! HE’S GONNA FLY!

Persephone: I HOPE YOU FALL AND DIE!

James Peters: JUSTIN COMES OFF THE TOP ROPE AND FLATTENS DRAKE KING WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY! A CROSSBODY OFF THE TOP ROPE AND JUSTIN POPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET!

Rich Russillo: Now Justin is setting up for that grounded superkick! He fires it off- but Drake catches it and throws his leg to the ground! Now Drake is back to his feet, he kicks the leg out from under Justin and he falls back into the ropes! Drake tries to clothesline Justin over the top! NO! Justin gets to the side of Drake King and uses a side Russian leg sweep to take Drake to the ground! The champion hits the canvas hard! NOW JUSTIN GRABS DRAKE BY THE BEARD AND TELLS HIM IT’S TIME TO PAY! JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW LANDS THAT GROUNDED SUPERKICK FLUSH ON THE CHIN OF DRAKE KING! THAT ONE MIGHT’VE SENT SOME TEETH INTO THE FRONT ROW!!

James Peters: Drake King just got rocked and now he’s trying to collect himself! Justin grabs Drake by the back of the neck and sends him tumbling through the ropes! Drake King is barely able to get to his feet, he seems out of it! Justin Windgate knows that he’s got the champion on the ropes, he’s calling for an aerial assault! Justin Windgate now gets onto the apron, looking to canoe the onslaught-

Rich Russillo: Drake was playing possum! Drake was playing possum and he rips the leg out from under Justin and sends him back first into the apron! Crashing onto the apron as Drake takes out that already injured leg of Justin Windgate! Windgate grabs his leg in pain as Drake rips his knee pad off! Drake King rips the knee pad off Justin’s injured knee and delivers a punch to the face of Justin! NOW GRABBING HIS LEG AND SLAMMING THE KNEE OF THE CHALLENGER INTO THE RINGPOST!

Persephone: Serves him right for not already beating this textbook caucasian Jesus in black and red leather. Fuckimg imbecile, I swear.

James Peters: Justin’s leg just got brutally driven against that ring post and now Drake yanks him off as he hits the floor with a thud! Drake King just slung the challenger to the floor without hesitation, he came ready to make good on the name of this event! Drake grabs Justin and tries to lift him up into powerbomb position! They’re on the outside, this is dangerousssss!!! DRAKE KING WITH JUSTIN WINDGATE UP HIGH, RUNNING ACROSS THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND THROWING JUSTIN-

Rich Russillo: BOOM! JUSTIN WINDGATE TURNS IT AROUND INTO A HURRICANRANA! HE THROWS DRAKE INTO THE BARRICADE AND THE CHAMPION SLAMS INTO IT WITH FORCE! Falling against the apron goes Justin Windgate, what a counter as he tries to collect himself! OH BOY, JUSTIN IS UP AND WANTS TO ATTACK!! HE CHARGES TOWARDS DRAKE WITH A SLIDING KNEE STRIKE AND THE TWO MEN SEND THE BARRICADE CRASHING DOWN AS JUSTIN WINDGATE SENDS THE KNEE BARRELING INTO THE FACE OF DRAKE KING!

Persephone: THEY COULD’VE INJURED ANYBODY SITTING IN THAT FRONT ROW!? I MEAN, I STILL WOULD’VE LAUGHED BECAUSE THESE BASEMENT-DWELLING NERDS FINALLY GOT A WAKEUP CALL TO DO SOMETHING WITH THEIR MISERABLE LIVES!!

James Peters: Justin Windgate sends that apron crumbling down like a house of cards and Drake King is buried beneath it all! Justin Windgate stumbles around ringside, he’s in front of us now and..oh no…OH BOY!!

James Peters: He’s under the apron and he’s looking for a weapon! He wants to punish Drake for the things he’s said and make him hurt! OH LORD! JUSTIN WINDGATE PULLS A BASEBALL BAT OUT FROM UNDER THE APRON AND HE’S EYEING DRAKE KING! HE’S EYEING HIS SKULL, ACTUALLY! JUSTIN WINDGATE MAKING HIS WAY ACROSS THE RINGSIDE AREA, HERE HE GOES WITH A DAMN BASEBALL BAT-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE GRABS A PIECE OF THAT STEEL BARRICADE AND SHIELDS HIMSELF FROM THE BLOW! JUSTIN WINDGATE SLAMMED THAT BAT DOWN AND DRAKE BLOCKED IT WITH THAT BARRICADE! NOW SHOVING IT INTO JUSTIN WINDGATE AND TACKLING HIM TO THE FLOOR! HE DROPS THE BAT AND DRAKE GRABS A HOLD OF IT! DRAKE KING WITH THE BAT, OH NO! HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND SMASHES THE BAT DOWN ON TOP OF THE FACE OF JUSTIN-

James Peters: JUSTIN WINDGATE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY JUST BARELY! HE ALMOST HAD HIS FACE SHATTERED INTO A MILLION PIECES AT THE HAND OF THAT METAL BAT! WAIT- LOOK AT DRAKE! DRAKE DOESN’T CARE, HE’S GOT THE BAT PRESSED DOWN ON THE THROAT OF JUSTIN WINDGATE! DRAKE TRYING TO STRANGLE JUSTIN AS HE’S STRUGGLING ON THE FLOOR!

Rich Russillo: OH NO! WHAT THE HELL IS DRAKE DOING?!

Persephone: HIT THAT FUCKING BITCH IN HIS UGLY ASS TEETH!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE HAS THE BAT LAID OUT OVER JUSTIN’S NECK, DRAKE, STOP! OH NO, DRAKE!!!

James Peters: STOMP!!!! DRAKE KING JUST STOMPED BOTH FEET AT THE ENDS OF THE BAT AND CRUSH THE NECK OF JUSTIN WINDGATE! HE CRUSHED THE NECK AND THROAT OF JUSTIN WITH THAT BAT AS THE CHALLENGER IS ROLLING AROUND AND COUGHING VIOLENTLY, THROWING UP BLOOD AT RINGSIDE AND TRYING TO BREATHE! OH MY GOD!!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE NOW STORMS BY RINGSIDE AND SWINGS THE BAT AGAINST THE KNEE OF JUSTIN WINDGATE! NO! JUSTIN CRAWLED OUT OF THE WAY AND SCRAMBLED AWAY FROM DRAKE, THE CHAMPION NOW WALKS TOWARDS HIM AGAIN AND CRACKS THE BAT AGAINST THE RING POST AS WINDGATE JUST BARELY JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY! THAT ONE HURT DRAKE’S HANDS AS HE’S FORCED TO DROP THE BAT!

James Peters: Thank God, Windgate finally with some seconds to breathe, but Drake King is snarling at him, he doesn’t intend on offering Justin any – BANG! SUPERKICK FROM JUSTIN! AND JUST LIKE THAT, DRAKE IS DOING THE CHICKEN DANCE! HE’S ON WOBBLY LEGS, DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HE’S AT AND JUSTIN WINDGATE GRABS A CHAIR FROM RINGSIDE, OH BOY!!! BOOM!!!! HE SMACKS THAT STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE FACE OF THE CHAMPION AND DRAKE HITS THE FLOOR IN A HEAP!!!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE IS SCREAMING AT DRAKE “THAT’S PAYBACK”!!! THIS HAS BECOME EXTREMELY PERSONAL AND JUSTIN WINDGATE WILL GO TO ANY LENGTH TO MAKE DRAKE SUFFER FOR HIS ATTACKS! JUSTIN WANTS TO TAKE OUT NEW EDEN RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!

Persephone: DO IT AND LOSE THE TITLE TO REX, NONE OF YOU ARE FIT TO LEAD THIS COMPANY!

Rich Russillo: Justin rolls Drake back in the ring and goes under the apron again, he wants to use everything he can to punish Drake this time around! OH BOY, YOU KNOW WHAT HE HAS! JUSTIN WINDGATE PULLS OUT THE CHAINSAW AND BEGINS TO START IT! DRAKE HEARS THE SOUND AND TRIES TO SCRAMBLE TO HIS FEET! JUSTIN GETS INTO THE RING AND RUNS TOWARDS DRAKE WITH THE CHAINSAW!-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND SAYS LET’S TAKE THIS OUT HERE! HA! BRILLIANT TACTICS FROM DRAKE! THESE PEOPLE BOOING JUST WANT TO SEE SENSELESS VIOLENCE, BUT OUR CHAMPION IS WRESTLING SMART, WRESTLING LIKE A CHAMPION!

James Peters: Justin Windgate invites Drake back into the ring and Drake is having no part of it! Drake throws the chair into the ring and tries to hit Windgate, but she shakes it off and tells Drake “LET’S GO!”! Drake won’t do it and JUSTIN STORMS OUT OF THE RING! HE TURNED THE CHAINSAW OFF AND IS RUNNING AFTER DRAKE! THE TWO ROLL BACK INTO THE RING AND JUSTIN REVS UP THE SAW AGAIN! JUSTIN RAISES IT IN THE AIR AND- WAIT!!!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE HAS THE CHAIR NOW, HE HOLDS IT UP AND JUSTIN WINDGATE BRINGS THE SAW DOWN ONTO IT! JUSTIN IS CUTTING THROUGH THAT CHAIR, BUT THE SPARKS AND SHARDS BLOW BACK INTO HIS EYES! HE CAN’T SEE! HE STUMBLES AROUND AND DROPS THE CHAINSAW OVER THE TOP ROPE! DRAKE NOW SEPARATES THE CHAIR FULLY IN HALF AND SLICES AT THE FACE OF JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH THE JAGGED EDGES!!!

James Peters: DRAKE KING IS SLICING AT JUSTIN’S FACE AND HIS ARMS AS WINDGATE TRIES TO COVER UP! JUSTIN’S BLOOD IS NOW ALL OVER BOTH OF THEM AND DRAKE THROWS THE DEBRIS TO THE SIDE, UNLOADING WITH PUNCHES ON THE BLEEDING AND BATTERED WINDGATE! DRAKE PICKS HIM UP AND STARTS SCREAMING IN HIS FACE! DRAKE KING OFF THE ROPES, HE’S LOOKING TO ATTACK- BANG! SPINNING BACKFIST FROM JUSTIN WINDGATE, THAT ONE PUT DRAKE KING ON THE CANVAS! HOW?!? WHAT A COUNTER!!

Rich Russillo: YOU’RE TELLING ME! JUSTIN’S BLOOD SPLATTERED EVERYWHERE, BUT HE STILL MANAGED TO FIRE BACK WITH THAT DEVASTATING BACK FIST! Drake King just barely and painfully stumbles into the middle rope, but Justin grabs him by the hair now! He goes for another big hook- BUT DRAKE DODGED THAT ONE AND DROPPED JUSTIN WITH A NECKBREAKER! THAT ONE RATTLED HIS SPINE! NOW DRAKE SCOOPING HIM UP, OH BOY, HE’S IN POWERBOMB POSITION! DRAKE IS GONNA RUN ACROSS THE RING FOR A BUCKLE BOMB!

DRAKE POWERS HIM BACK UP, DEADLIFTING THE CHALLENGER, WHAT STRENGTH FROM THE CHAMPION! DRAKE LIFTING HIM RIGHT BACK INTO POWERBOMB POSITION!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE ESCAPES OUT THE BACKDOOR AND TURNS THIS INTO A SUNSET-FLIP BOMB!!! WHAT A COUNTER, HE BOUNCED DRAKE’S HEAD OFF THE CANVAS! NOW HE ROLLS TO THE SIDE AND PICKS DRAKE UP AGAIN, LIFTING
HIS NECK FOR A DDT! AND HE GETS IT! DROPPING THE CHAMPION HEAD FIRST INTO THE MAT WITH A SKULL-ECHOING DDT THAT HAS DRAKE DOWN AND OUT! HERE GOES JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH THE PIN, TRYING TO PUT THE CHAMPION AWAY!

OOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: KICKOUT! STRONG KICK OUT RIGHT AT ONE! DRAKE CAME TO WIN TONIGHT, IT’S GONNA TAKE SO MUCH MORE TO EVEN GET CLOSE TO PUTTING HIM AWAY!

Persephone: High motherfucker thought he was going to win the world title off a ddt…Dumbass.

Rich Russillo: These two are so evenly matched, two of EAW’s most decorated tenures and we’re seeing now just why, these are two of, if not the two best wrestlers on the planet right now!

James Peters: Drake is still reeling from that DDT, but Justin is back outside the ring again, he goes under the apron and is looking for more weapons! OH BOY, HERE COME THE-

Persephone: REX MCALLISTER!?

James Peters: NO, THE TABLES! Justin Windgate is setting that table up- Wait, he just laid one of the tables on the apron?! And he’s laying the other side on the barricade, he’s got that table draped across ringside and you can imagine he envisions planting Drake’s spine through it!

Rich Russillo: Now what is he looking for?! Justin Windgate is searching under the- Is that a bag?! What the hell is in there? OH BOY, BRING OUT THE GLASS! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST DUMPED GLASS SHARDS ALL OVER THAT TABLE, THOUSANDS OF SPLINTERING SHARP GLASS SHARDS!

James Peters: Justin now rolling into the ring, but Drake meets him with a quick enzuigiri! A boot that snaps off the back of Justin’s head, that one dropped Justin to the mat! NOW DRAKE TRIES TO STOMP ON JUSTIN WINDGATE’S ELBOW, LOOKING TO BREAK THE ARM IN HALF! NO! JUSTIN WINDGATE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND GETS BACK UP! BUT DRAKE MEETS HIM WITH A SUPERKICK ON HIS WAY UP! JUSTIN FALLS ONTO THE CHEST OF DRAKE, WHO WITH NO HESITATION, LIFTS HIM IN THE AIR AND DROPS HIM WITH A NASTY BRAINBUSTER-

NOW LIFTING DRAKE UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, OH NO, HE’S EYEING THAT TABLE WITH THE GLASS SHARDS ALL OVER IT! JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH DRAKE ON HIS SHOULDERS, RUNNING TOWARDS THE ROPES!

James Peters: DRAKE ABLE TO GRAB ONTO THE TOP ROPE, FIGHTING OFF WINDGATE AS HE DELIVERS A NASTY ELBOW TO THE TEMPLE OF THE CHALLENGER! Drake is able to get out to the apron, Justin is trying to recover and he sees Drake on the apron, HERE GOES WINDGATE! SUPERKICK TO DRAKE KING! NO! DRAKE STILL DIDN’T DROP, HE’S TEETERING, BUT HE DIDN’T FALL! DRAKE STILL HANGING ONTO THAT TOP ROPE, FEET AWAY FROM THAT TABLE!

Rich Russillo: NOW A JAB, DRAKE IS ON WOBBLY LEGS BUT HE REFUSES TO FALL-

James Peters: IT DOESN’T MATTER, JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW ROARING OFF THE ROPES AND HE SPEARS DRAKE KING IN HALF, THROUGH THE TABLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! GLASS EVERYWHERE AND THESE TWO MEN ARE CUT AND BLEEDING ALL OVER THE FLOOR, JUSTIN WINDGATE DRAGS DRAKE STRAIGHT TO HELL WITH HIM! JUSTIN WINDGATE RISKING IT ALL HERE TONIGHT!

Rich Russillo: HE’S CUT AND HE’S BLEEDING, HE’S BEATEN AND BATTERED, BUT HE’S NOT DONE YET! HE ROLLS DRAKE BACK IN THE RING AND QUICKLY SNATCHES SOMETHING FROM UNDER THE RING, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?!? WAIT, IT’S A GLASS BONG! A GLASS BONG AND HE’S ABOUT TO SMOKE THAT DRAKE KING PACK! THAT NEW EDEN PACK!

James Peters: JUSTIN DROPS THE BONG ON THE MAT AND GRABS A HOLD OF THE CHAMPION! HE LIFTS DRAKE KING INTO THE AIR, SUPLEX POSITION! HE’S GONNA SUPLEX DRAKE ONTO THAT GLASS BONG, AS IF DRAKE DOESN’T ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH GLASS SHARDS STILL CUTTING HIS SKIN-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE WITH A KNEE TO THE SKULL AND HE DROPS BACK TO THE CANVAS, NARROWLY AVOIDING THAT SUPLEX, BUT HE NAILS JUSTIN WITH A QUICK FOREARM TO THE CHIN! NOW JUSTIN FIRES BACK WITH A TYSON-LIKE PUNCH! NO! DRAKE KING AVOIDS IT AND TAKES THE BACK OF JUSTIN WINDGATE, WAIT, HE’S GOT THE WRIST TOO!

Rich Russillo: JESUS LORD, DRAKE KING IS VICIOUS! WAIT, LOO-LOOK AT HIM! DRAKE KING IS ICE COLD, HE’S STARING STOICALLY AT WINDGATE’S BLEEDING SCALP AND HAS NOTHING BEHIND THOSE EYES BUT DISDAIN! THIS MAN ISN’T THINKING ABOUT REVENGE OR PAIN, HE’S THINKING ABOUT EAW! HE’S DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO IMPLORE HIS VISION OF THE FUTURE INTO REALITY, NOBODY WILL STOP HIM!

(Crowd cheers for the violence and then boos as Drake King looks out to them.)

James Peters: Man, look at this. Those motives might be different, but he’s a vicious and cruel bastard all the same. He’s wiping the blood out of Justin’s eyes and violently shaking his head as he yells at the challenger! Blood is all over both men as they bear the scars of this already excruciating contest, but Drake is now making Windgate feel the mental pain! He wants him to know that EAW is New Eden’s and nobody else’s!

Persephone: I mean, it’s kinda DEDEDE’s and the whole head production staff too, but hey, whatever floats this dumb fuck’s boat!

Rich Russillo: Wait, oh boy, Drake King now going to ringside, he’s gonna introduce his own tools of destruction! As if Windgate hasn’t been put through enough! Drake searching violently for something, whatever it is, it’s gotta be- OH NO, HE’S GOT THE CHAINSAW! HE SLIDES IT INTO THE RING AND THEN-

James Peters: What the hell?! Why is he still looking for something? He just slid that chainsaw in the ring, surely he doesn’t need another one!? Wait…What is…he has something in his hands…it’s..it’s…it’s a book?!

Rich Russillo: IT’S THE BOOK! THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY! I DIDN’T THINK WE’D EVER SEE AN ACTUAL BOOK, BUT HE’S GOT ONE IN HIS HANDS AND OH BOY, HE’S ABOUT TO READ ALOUD THE NEW EDEN PROVERBS FOR JUSTIN WINDGATE!

James Peters: Wait…WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING?! HE’S TAKING THE CHAIN OFF THAT CHAINSAW AND NOW WRAPPING IT AROUND THE NECK OF WINDGATE! HE’S CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HIM AND YANKING THAT CHAIN BACK AS HE HOLDS THE BOOK OUT IN FRONT OF JUSTIN, OH MY GOD, THIS IS CRUEL!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING IS READING THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY TO JUSTIN WINDGATE AS HE HAS KNEE PLANTED FIRMLY IN THE CHALLENGER’S SPINE AND IS CHOKING HIM OUT WITH THAT CHAINSAW CHAIN WITH THE OTHER HAND! THIS MAN IS MERCILESS!! DRAKE KING IS TRYING TO KILL JUSTIN WINDGATE FOR EVER DOUBTING NEW EDEN! FOR EVER TRYING TO STAND IN THEIR WAY AND EVER TRYING TO DISRUPT THE VISION!

Drake King: NEW EDEN 1:4: WHEN YOUR CAREER IS DEAD AND GONE, NEW EDEN WILL STILL BE HERE! WE WILL ALWAYS BE HERE AND WE WILL ALWAYS BE EAW!

James Peters: HE SLAPS JUSTIN IN THE FACE WITH THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY AND NOW THROWS IT TO THE SIDE, HE GRABS THAT CHAIN AND WRAPS IT AROUND JUSTIN’S MOUTH, OH GOD, DRAKE STOP! DRAKE, STOP! THE CHAMPION IS RIPPING APART THE FACE OF WINDGATE AS HE RIPS AT THE MOUTH WITH THE CHAINSAW CHAIN, GOOD GOD, SOMEONE STOP THIS! JUSTIN HAS TOO MUCH PRIDE TO TAP OUT, BUT HE MIGHT HAVE TO RIGHT NOW! HE DOES HAVE TO-

Rich Russillo: HOLY SHIT! HE JUST GRABBED ONE OF THOSE GLASS SHARDS AND STABBED IT BACKWARDS INTO THE EYE OF DRAKE KING! A BIG GLASS SHARD JUST GOT SHOVED INTO DRAKE’S EYE AND HE’S FORCED TO DROP THE CHAIN! HE’S FORCED TO LET IT GO AND ROLLS AROUND VIOLENTLY!! HIS EYE IS COMPLETELY BLOODSHOT AND HE’S SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!

Drake King: HOLY FRACKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH OWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!

James Peters: OH MY GOD, JUSTIN WINDGATE IS BACK UP AND GE JUST GRABBED THAT CHAIN, OH NO-

Rich Russillo: CRACK!!!!!! HE SMACKS THAT CHAIN OVER DRAKE’S BACK AND IT SLAPS OFF HIS SKIN! IT MIGHT’VE BRUISED HIS DAMN ORGANS WITH THE POWER IT WAS JUST SWUNG WITH! NOW ANOTHER HIT, THAT ONE AGAIN TO DRAKE’S BACK! NOW JUSTIN WINDGATE STARTS HITTING DRAKE IN THE LEGS AND TORSO WITH IT, JUST TRYING TO MAKE HIM PAY AND BAD!!!

James Peters: HE’S ROLLING AROUND TRYING TO GET OUT OF HARM’S WAY! HE SCRAMBLES UP TO HIS FEET IN THE CORNER AND JUSTIN SWINGS THE CHAIN AT DRAKE’S FACE- BUT DRAKE EVADES IT AS HE DUCKS AND JUSTIN MISSES! NOW DRAKE STOMPS ON THE KNEE OF JUSTIN! OH MY GOD, REMEMBER THAT BAD KNEE! DRAKE HAD BEEN PICKING IT APART ALL NIGHT, IT COMES BACK TO HURT JUSTIN AGAIN NOW! HE BUCKLES AS DRAKE RIPS THE CHAIN AWAY FROM HIM AND CLIMBS TO THE SECOND ROPE! WHAT IN THE WORLD-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE WRAPS THE CHAIN AROUND THE NECK OF JUSTIN AND HE LAUNCHES HIMSELF WITH A BLOCKBUSTER FROM THE SECOND ROPE!!! HE SLAMS JUSTIN TO THE MAT WITH THAT CHAIN AROUND HIS THROAT! DRAKE KING CONTINUES TO TAKE THE PUNISHMENT TO A DIFFERENT LEVEL!

Persephone: I wish he’d take his weird ass mideveal dress code to a different level, dude looks like he’s coming out to reneact dungeons and dragons or some stupid shit. How he hasn’t already finished this weed smoking bum, I don’t know, but hopefully he uses this chainsaw and buzzes my head off because I can’t fucking stand these two.

James Peters: I don’t know about all that, but he is putting the chainsaw back on the chain- wait, Justin is grabbing onto the book of Dristianity! He’s grabbing onto anything at this point, but Drake drops the chain to the canvas before he can put it back on and rips the book from Justin’s hands! Drake grabs Justin and drags him to his feet- Justin with a jawbreaker! Windgate shocks Drake King with that jawbreaker and now Justin Windgate is trying to mount a counter attack!

Rich Russillo: He fires off with a calf-kick and Drake grabs his leg! Drake now kicks Justin’s leg and the challenger drops to his knee with a big yell! DRAKE LIFTS HIM UP, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR ANOTHER FALCON ARROW! HERE HE GOES! NO, WAIT! JUSTIN ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR AND GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! DRAKE TURNS AROUND AND JUSTIN GRABS HIM- OH BOY! HE’S LOOKING FOR THAT ‘RUN IT UP’ SLICED BREAD! HERE IT COMES!

James Peters: JUSTIN RUNS OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND ATTEMPTS THE ‘RUN IT UP’!!!! NO!!! DRAKE KING SUSPENDS HIM IN MIDAIR AND DROPS HIM WITH AN INVERTED FALCON ARROW! MY GOD, AN INVERTED FALCON ARROW, WHEN DO WE EVER SEE SOMETHING LIKE THAT?!? DRAKE KING DROPS WINDGATE TO THE CANVAS AND HEADS TO THE OUTSIDE! HE’S ASCENDING THE TURNBUCKLES, HE WANTS TO FLY! DRAKE KING ON THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING FOR A FROG SPLASH-

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE SPRINGS UP THERE AFTER HIM, JUSTIN WINDGATE GRABS DRAKE AND BRINGS HIM CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE APRON WITH A SLINGSHOT DDT, THE ‘DTX’!!!!! HE SMASHED DRAKE’S HEAD TO THE APRON AND DRAKE KING IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! DRAKE IS LIFELESSLY DRAPED ON THE APRON AS JUSTIN WINDGATE STUMBLES AROUND, TRYING TO GET HIM BACK IN THE RING!

James Peters: JUSTIN HAS THE CHAMP DOWN AND OUT, THIS IS HIS CHANCE TO FINISH IT! HIS CHANCE TO BECOME THE WORLD CHAMPION AND ACHIEVE HIS GREATEST GOAL, THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL FOR WINDGATE NOW! HE ROLLS DRAKE BACK IN THE RING AND NOW HE PICKS UP THAT CHAINSAW! JUSTIN WITH THE CHAINSAW AND DRAKE IS EVER SO SLIGHTLY STIRRING- WAIT!

Rich Russillo: THE CHAIN! DRAKE DIDN’T PUT THE CHAIN BACK ON THE SAW AND JUSTIN IS JUST NOW REALIZING IT! HE’S LOOKING AROUND FOR IT AND FINALLY SEES THE CHAIN, DESPERATELY FIGHTING TO GET IT ON THE CHAINSAW! THE CLOCK IS BURNING AS DRAKE KING IS BEGINNING TO STIR! JUSTIN WINDGATE IS JUST BARELY ABLE TO GET IT ON AND START UP THE CHAINSAW! HE LUNGES IT TOWARDS DRAKE-

James Peters: DRAKE DUCKS UNDER IT AND SLIDES UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE, HE GRABS THE CHAINSAW ON THE FLOOR AND JUSTIN INVITES HIM BACK INTO THE RING! OH BOY, HERE WE FUCKING GO! DRAKE IS ABOUT TO START UP THAT CHAINSAW! THESE TWO BOTH HAVE CHAINSAWS AND THEY ARE ROARING, READY TO CUT EACH OTHER DOWN! OH MY!!!!!

(Crowd gets to their feet and collectively holds their breath.)

Rich Russillo: DRAKE HURLS HIS CHAINSAW AT JUSTIN WINDGATE AND IT CATCHES HIM ON THE ARM AS HE TRIED TO AVOID IT! A BIG GASH OPENED ON JUSTIN’S ARM AND DRAKE KING FIRES A BICYCLE KICK BEFORE JUSTIN WINDGATE CAN RECOVER! DRAKE KNOCKS THE SCREWS LOOSE FROM JUSTIN’S HEAD WITH THAT KICK AS HE’S FORCED TO DROP THE SAW! DRAKE NOW TAKES HIS BACK AND LOOKS FOR A NECKBREAKER! NO, JUSTIN WINDGATE TURNS THIS AROUND AND PICKS DRAKE UP! OH NO, JUSTIN, DON’T!!!!! HE’S GOT HIS EYES ON THAT CHAINSAW ON THE GROUND, JUSTINNNNN!!!!

James Peters: THE CHALLENGER SLAMS THE CHAMPION ONTO THAT GROUNDED CHAINSAW AND DRAKE KING’S BODY FOLDS OVER THAT CHAINSAW BLADE! HE CAN’T BREATHE AS HE STARTS SPITTING BLOOD ONTO THE CANVAS, THE MARKS OF WAR ALL OVER THE RING AND ALL OVER THESE TWO MEN! JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH A DEVASTATING BODY SLAM ONTO THAT CHAINSAW! NOW JUSTIN SCRAMBLES TO THE OUTSIDE, HE KNOWS HIS TIME IS NOW AND THIS IS HIS MOMENT! JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW CLIMBING TO THE TOP, LABORED BREATHS FROM JUSTIN WINDGATE AS HE NEARLY FALLS OFF THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT HE’S UP THERE-

Rich Russillo: THE CHAINSAW, JUSTIN TOOK TOO LONG AND DRAKE CRAWLED TO THE SAW! JUSTIN WINDGATE IS TEETERING ON THE TOP AND DRAKE ACTIVATES THE SAW! OH MY GOD, JUSTIN WINGATE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO GO! DRAKE HAS A SADISTIC LOOK IN HIS EYE, BLOOD DRIPPING FROM HIS MOUTH AND CUTS ALL OVER HIS BODY, DRAKE HAS LOST IT AND HE, WAIT-

James Peters: DRAKE IS TAKING THE GROUND UNDER HIS FEET, HE SAWS THROUGH THE TOP ROPE WITH THE CHAINSAW AND THE ENTIRE TOP ROPE SNAPS AS IT SENDS DRAKE WHIPPING TO THE CANVAS AND JUSTIN WINDGATE CRASHES HEAD FIRST DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!!!!! JUSTIN FELL FROM THE SKIES AND HIT THE CANVAS LIFELESSLY, DRAKE IS CRAWLING TO THE BOTTOM ROPE AS THE CHAINSAW WENT TUMBLING OUT OF THE RING, OH MY GOD, WHAT DID DRAKE KING JUST DO?! THEY’RE GONNA BRING DOWN THE ENTIRE ARENA AT THIS DAMN RATE!!! DRAKE EXPLODED THAT TOP ROPE AND SENT WINDGATE BARRELING DOWN, HE’S TURNED THE TIDES AND SUDDENLY, DRAKE KING SEES THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY!!

Rich Russillo: HE DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO! He did exactly what was necessary!! That’s the sign of a true champion! AND NOW LOOK AT HIM, HE’S GRABBING THAT TOP ROPE AND TYING IT AROUND THE FEET OF THE CHALLENGER!? HOW CREATIVELY DANGEROUS IS OUR CHAMPION!?!

James Peters: EXTREMELY BECAUSE HE’S TYING THE OTHER SIDE TO THE RING POST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AND NOW….OH NO, HE GRABS WINDGATE AND DROPS HIM OVER THE SECOND ROPE AS JUSTIN IS SUSPENDING UPSIDE DOWN AGAINST THE ROPES! HE IS HANGING WINDGATE BY HIS FEET AND HIS HANDS ARE DANGLING ON THE FLOOR, DRAKE KING HAS HIS CHALLENGER DEFENSELESS RIGHT NOW, COME ON!! DRAKE RUNS TOWARDS THE CAMERAMAN AND RIPS HIS CAMERA AWAY FROM HIM! HE TURNS AROUND AND PUTS THE CAMERA IN THE DANGLING AND BLEEDING FACE OF JUSTIN WINDGATE! MAN, THIS IS TOO MUCH!!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE SLAMS THE CAMERA AGAINST THE UPSIDE DOWN JUSTIN WINDGATE’S SKULL AND THROWS IT TO THE FLOOR! THE THUD THAT WINDGATE’S SKULL MADE WAS DISGUSTING! NOW THE CHAMPION GOES AROUND THE RING, SEARCHING VIOLENTLY FOR…WAIT, HE’S LOOKING FOR EXACTLY WHAT THIS MATCH WAS BUILT AROUND! WHAT IT EMBODIES AND WHAT IT WAS NAMED AFTER, DRAKE WANTS TO END THE LIFE OF WINDGATE WITH THE CHAINSAW!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE HAS THE CHAINSAW AND HE ACTIVATES IT! HE’S GOT THE SAW READY TO GO AND HE APPROACHES JUSTIN WINDGATE! OH MAN, COME ON, I KNOW THAT IS THE NATURE OF THE MATCH AND THAT HE HAS TO RETAIN HIS TITLE, BUT THIS MAY BE TOO FAR! WAIT, WHAT IS HE- OH MY GOD! DRAKE IS TRYING TO GET THE HAIR OF WINDGATE CAUGHT UP IN THE CHAINSAW, HE WANTS TO SCALP WINDGATE FOR THE DEPTHS THIS RIVALRY HAS REACHED!

James Peters: DRAKE PUTS THE CHAINSAW TO JUSTIN- NO! JUSTIN USED WHATEVER STRENGTH HE HAD LEFT TO PULL HIS BODY UP AND GRAB THE SECOND ROPE BEFORE DRAKE GOT TO HIM! HE DUMPS HIS BODY INTO THE RING! HE GETS HIMSELF LOOSE FROM THE THE ROPE AROUND HIS FEET AND THEN KICKS GLASS SHARDS INSIDE THE RING TO THE OUTSIDE, INTO THE FACE OF DRAKE KING!!! WHO STUMBLES AROUND AND SLICES THE BARRICADE TO SHREDS WITH THE CHAINSAW AS HE FALLS!!! HE NEARLY BEHEADED HIMSELF WITH ALL THAT GLASS IN HIS EYE AND DRAKE’S EYE IS STILL BLOODSHOT AND PROBABLY BLIND FROM THAT EARLIER ATTACK WITH THE SHARD FROM JUSTIN!!!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN NOW ON THE SECOND ROPE, HE SPRINGBOARDS HIMSELF TO THE OUTSIDE AND FLOORS DRAKE KING WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! JUSTIN WINDGATE FLEW ALL THE WAY TO THE OUTSIDE WITH THAT DROPKICK AND SHOT HIS FEET THROUGH DRAKE’S CHEST LIKE A DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUN! DRAKE KING JUST TUMBLED TO THE FLOOR AND JUSTIN IS GETTING HIM BACK UP, HE’S FEELING A SECOND WIND AND IS READY GO! HE THROWS DRAKE KING BACK IN THE RING AND SLIDES UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE-

James Peters: BANG! ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’!!!!

JUSTIN WINDGATE IS BARELY MOVING AS DRAKE IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, HE KNOWS THAT IF HE’S GONNA FINISH JUSTIN, IT NEEDS TO BE NOW!

James Peters: LOOK AT DRAKE, HE’S TAKING THE TURNBUCKLE OFF AND EXPOSING THAT STEEL CONNECTOR BEHIND THE TURNBUCKLE! THIS WON’T BE GOOD-

Rich Russillo: Drake just took something out of the turnbuckle?! He just ripped it open and removed something…wait..is that a joint?! HE’S GOT A JOINT AND A LIGHTER IN HIS HANDS, WHAT IS DRAKE DOING?!

James Peters: DRAKE IS GONNA HIT IT, WHAT DO YOU THINK! HE’S CRAZY!

Persephone: Thank God, maybe he’ll pass out like the marshmallow he is and this match can get over with!

Rich Russillo: ARE YOU BOTH CRAZY?! DRAKE KING WOULD NEVER! NEW EDEN WOULD NEVER AND NEW EDEN’S VISION FOR EAW DOESN’T CONSIST OF DRUGS! DRAKE JUST PUT THAT JOINT IN THE MOUTH OF JUSTIN WINDGATE! HE LIGHTS IT UP AND JUSTIN WINDGATE STARTS COUGHING AS THE JOINT FALLS ONTO THE CANVAS AND DRAKE SHAKES HIS HEAD IN DISGUST! THIS POISON IS NOT SOMETHING DRAKE WOULD EVER PUT INTO HIS BRAIN! HE KICKS THE JOINT AND THE LIGHTER TO THE OUTSIDE AS HE LIFTS JUSTIN WINDGATE TO HIS FEET- WHAT THE HELL?!

James Peters: JUSTIN WINDGATE FLICKING DRAKE KING OFF, TWO BIG MIDDLE FINGERS IN THE FACE OF DRAKE AS JUSTIN START STUMBLING AND BLOOD DRIPPING THROUGH HIS EYEBROWS, DOWN HIS FACE! DRAKE CRACKS A SMILE AND NOW GRABS JUSTIN WINDGATE AND SCOOPS HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDER! HE RUNS TOWARDS THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLES AND TRIES TO DUMP JUSTIN ONTO IT- NO! JUSTIN DROPPED OFF THE BACK OF DRAKE AND SHOVED HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! DRAKE GABBS THE SECOND ROPE AND RAISED HIS HEAD BEFORE HE HIT THE STEEL-

Rich Russillo: HE TURNS AROUND AND IS MET WITH A PELE KICK FROM JUSTIN! WINDGATE PELE KICKS DRAKE KING AND ROCKS HIM, ROCKS HIM BAD! DRAKE WOBBLES AND JUSTIN LAUNCHES HIMSELF OFF THAT EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE, HERE HE GOESSSSS!!! ‘RUN IT UPPPPP’!!!!!! THAT SLICED BREAD OFF THE TURNBUCKLE AND HE THROWS DRAKE TO THE CANVAS, JUSTIN IT THE ‘RUN IT UP’ AND HE’S SOMEHOW CAUGHT A SECOND LIFE IN THIS MATCH! HE’S ON THE CUSP OF HAVING IT ALL, FINDING HIS DREAMS AND BEING THE FACE OF THIS COMPANY!

Persephone: YES! FINISH HIM AND END THIS NEW EDEN BULLSHIT!

James Peters: JUSTIN CALLING FOR THE ‘CLASSIC ENDING’ TO FINALLY PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF NEW EDEN! TO END THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL BY TAKING THE TITLE FROM DRAKE KING! HE’S GONNA DO IT! JUSTIN WINDGATE GOES FOR THE ‘CLASSIC ENDINGGGGGG’!!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!!! DRAKE CAUGHT HIM AND TURNED IT INTO A BACKBREAKER! HE DROPS JUSTIN SPINE FIRST ONTO HIS KNEE AND NOW STOMPS ON HIS KNEE! THAT EXPOSED KNEE WITH NO PAD, DRAKE STOMPS ON IT WITH NO REMORSE! JUSTIN CLUTCHES AT IT AND TRIES TO ROLL ONTO HIS KNEES, BUT DRAKE SEES THE CHANCE, HE SEES HIS BOOT ON JUSTIN’S NECK! HERE HE GOES, DRAKE KING OFF THE ROPES AND CHARGES WITH A ‘JUDGMENT DA-

James Peters: JUSTIN SHOOTS A SUPERKICK INTO THE TEETH OF DRAKE AND STOPS THE CHAMP DEAD IN HIS TRACKS! NOW JUSTIN WINDGATE DRAGS DRAKE KING TO THE CORNER AND RIPS HIM DOWN INTO THAT EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE WITH A DDT!!! THAT EXPOSED STEEL JUST MET DRAKE KING’S CRANIUM AT THE HANDS OF A MONSTROUS DDT FROM JUSTIN WINDGATE! DRAKE IS SEEING STARS AND THE CHAMPION IS OUT OF IT! OH MY GOD, JUSTIN WINDGATE’S TIME TO SHINE IS HERE! THE LAST GASP, THE CURTAIN CALL, THIS IS HIS MOMENT! JUSTIN THROWS DRAKE TO THE CANVAS AND LOCKS IN THE ‘NO X-SCAPE’!!!! THE SUBMISSION IS IN AND IT’S FULL EFFECT!

Rich Russillo: HE’S GOT THE SUBMISSION IN AND A ROPE BREAK WON’T WORK HERE, NOT IN THIS MATCH! HE’S GONNA HAVE TO TAP OR FIND A WAY OUT, BUT THAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE, HE’S GOTTA SUBMIT!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE HAS DRAKE KING SECONDS FROM SUBMISSION AND SECONDS FROM FINALLY BECOMING THE CROWN JEWEL OF EAW!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE STILL HAS IT LOCKED IN AND DRAKE CRAWLS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE- OH MY GOD, JUSTIN ROLLED OUT THERE WITH HIM, AND THEY BOTH FALL TO THE FLOOR! JUSTIN WINDGATE STILL HAS IT LOCKED IN AND DRAKE IS ON THE FLOOR JUST SCREAMING IN AGONY!

Persephone: DON’T BE AN IDIOT! HE CAN’T SUBMIT HIM OUT HERE AND HE KNOWS IT! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST WANTS TO DESTROY DRAKE KING! JUSTIN WINDGATE- WAIT, HE JUST LET THE SUBMISSION GO AND GRABBED THE CHAINSAW, OH YES, DRAKE IS TRYING TO CRAWL AWAY, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE TRAPS DRAKE’S ARM AND….YES!!! THE CHAINSAW IS ACTIVE, JUSTIN, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: HE’S SAWING DRAKE’S FINGER!!!! HE’S SAWING HIS FINGER OFF AND DRAKE KING IS SCREAMING IN ALL TYPES OF PAIN! THE BLOOD IS SQUIRTING FROM DRAKE’S FINGER AS JUSTIN IS TRYING TO CUT THROUGH THE BONE! HE WANTS TO CUT DRAKE’S FINGER OFF! SOMEONE CALL THIS MATCH!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE IS STILL TRYING TO CUT OFF DRAKE’S FINGER AND HE’S GETTING THROUGH, DRAKE IS SCREAMING FOR DEAR LIFE AND PUNCHING WINDGATE IN THE FACE!

Persephone: YESSSSSSSSS, SAW THAT SHIT OFF!!!!

James Peters: DRAKE FINALLY GETS FREE AND RIPS HIS HAND AWAY, HE RUNS AROUND THE RING AND FALLS DOWN! HE SEARCHES VIOLENTLY UNDER THE RING FOR A FIRST-AID KIT AS HIS FINGER SEEMS TO BE ONLY HALF ATTACHED! THAT FINGER IS GOING TO FALL OF IF IT ISN’T TREATED! DRAKE GRABS THE FIRST-AID KIT AND MANAGES TO THRASH IT OPEN! JUSTIN WINDGATE WON’T LET HIM TAPE IT, HE WANTS TO TAKE TH-

Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD!!! DRAKE STABBED THE FOREARM OF JUSTIN WITH A HYPODERMIC NEEDLE! A HYPODERMIC NEEDLE PUT THROUGH JUSTIN’S ARM AND IT’S LITERALLY POKING OUT THE OTHER SIDE, JUSTIN IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN AS DRAKE STILL CLUTCHES AT HIS FINGER! I DON’T KNOW IF THERE WERE FLUIDS IN THAT SYRINGE OR NOT, BUT DRAKE DIDN’T CARE, HE PUT IT THROUGH THE ARM OF JUSTIN WINDGATE AND NOW GETS TO HIS FEET, A DISCUS ELBOW THAT FLATTENS WINDGATE AND SENDS HIM THUDDING AGAINST THE FLOOR! THAT NEEDLE IS STILL IN HIS ARM!

James Peters: Drake is taping that finger back together with the medical tape in that kit, wrapping it and putting mountains of tape around that mess of a finger! JUSTIN WINDGATE ON THE GROUND, HE RIPS THAT NEEDLE OUT AND YELLS OUT IN BLISTERING PAIN, MY GOD THAT MADE THIS ENTIRE ARENA CRINGE!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE IS INITIATED AND IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN, HE’S GOT A DIFFERENT KIND OF FIRE IN HIS EYES NOW!

Persephone: YEAH THAT’S CALLED A DISEASE! MOTHERFUCKER JUST GOT STUCK WITH SOME RANDOM NEEDLE!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE, ABSOLUTELY RUNNING OFF THE PAIN ALONE, STORMS TOWARDS DRAKE KING WITH A BIG LARIAT! DRAKE AVOIDS IT AND SENDS JUSTIN FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST, NOW GRABBING THE BACK OF JUSTIN’S HEAD AND SHOVING HIM FACE FIRST INTO THAT POST AGAIN! DRAKE TRIES TO IRISH WHIP JUSTIN WINDGATE INTO THE STAIRS- NO! JUSTIN TURNS THIS AROUND AND LAUNCHES DRAKE SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STAIRS! AND IS THAT- WAIT, JUSTIN WINDGATE IS GOING THROUGH THAT FIRST-AID KIT AND HE JUST PULLED OUT A SCALPEL!

James Peters: DRAKE SEES IT, HE SCRAMBLES UP THE STEPS AND RUNS INTO THE RING! JUSTIN WINDGATE RUNS IN BEHIND HIM, BUT DRAKE NAILS HIM WITH A BIG JUMPING KNEE TO THE FACE! JUSTIN DROPS THE SCALPEL AND DRAKE KICKS IT TO THE SIDE, NOW LIFTING JUSTIN UP INTO POWERBOMB POSITION, OH MY GOD, THIS ONE MIGHT GET THROUGH!!! DRAKE RUNS ACROSS THE RING AND THROWS JUSTIN DOWN ONTO THAT EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE! THAT STEEL CONNECTOR JUST MADE ITS WAY THROUGH THE SPINE OF WINDGATE AS HE CRUMBLES TO THE CANVAS!!

Rich Russillo: Wait…what the hell is Drake King doing?!

James Peters: He’s got the scalpel in hand and he’s cutting up the ring canvas? What in…WAIT, DRAKE CUTS THE CORNER OF THE RING AND PEELS THE CANVAS BACK, CUTTING UP THE FOAM AND THROWING IT TO RINGSIDE, THE BARE WOOD OF THAT RING IS EXPOSED AND DRAKE KING WANTS TO END IT HERE! THE RING WOOD IS AS UNFORGIVING AS ANY WEAPON AND DRAKE LOOKS LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO USE IT AS HIS FINAL WEAPON! HIS FINAL PROVERB IN THIS MATCH, JUSTIN WINDGATE WILL FALL VICTIM TO NEW EDEN’S DOMINANCE!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING LIFTS JUSTIN BY HIS HAIR AND MAKES JUSTIN STARE AT THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY! HE TELLS HIM THIS WAR IS FINISHED-

DRAKE CRUMBLES AS JUSTIN WINDGATE FEELS THE ENERGY! HE FEELS THE MOMENTUM AND KNOWS THIS COULD BE HIS FINAL STAND, HIS FINAL CHANCE TO WIN IT ALL!! JUSTIN WINDGATE CALLS FOR DRAKE TO GET TO HIS FEET AND HE JUMPS AT DRAKE KING WITH THE ‘CLASSIC ENDING’!!!! AND HE HIT IT!!!

THE WILL OF THE CHAMPION JUST SOMETHING ELSE, HE ISN’T DEFENDING A BELT, HE’S DEFENDING HIS POSITION ON TOP OF EAW AND DEFENDING HIS INFLUENCE OVER VOLTAGE!!! DEFENSIING NEW EDEN’S SPOT AT THE TOP!!!

Persephone: JUSTIN WINDGATE NEEDS TO KEEP GOING AND HE KNOWS THAT! HE CAN’T LET UP NOW! HE CAN’T STOP, HE NEEDS TO KEEP HIS FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL AND HE’S GOING TO! HE GRABS DRAKE AND LOCKS IN THE ‘NO X-SCAPE’ FOR PERHAPS THE FINAL TIME, THIS SUBMISSION IS IN DEEP AND DRAKE KING IS FIGHTING VIOLENTLY TO TRY AND GET OUT OF IT!!! HE CAN’T DO IT AND HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!! HE’S DROWNING AND JUSTIN IS KEEPING HIS HEAD BELOW THE WATER!!! LOOK AT DRAKE’S HAND, HE’S GONNA TAP, HE’S SHAKING HIS HAND ABOVE THE CANVAS!!! OH MY GOD, YES!!! DRAKE KING IS ABOUT TO TAP OU-

Persephone: HOLY SHIT!!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE RIPS IT OUT AND DRIVES IT INTO DRAKE’S HAND!!! OH MY FREAKING LORD, HE JUST SHOVED THE SCALPEL INTO DRAKE’S HAND AND THE CHAMPION SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN AS BLOOD CONTINUES TO STAIN THIS ALREADY HEAVILY RED CANVAS! WINDGATE THROWS THE SCALPEL TO THE SIDE AND GRABS THE HAND OF DRAKE, THE FINGER WITH THE MEDICAL TAPE ON IT!! JUSTIN RIPS IT OFF AND WRAPS IT AROUND DRAKE’S NECK! HE’S GOT THE TAPE WRAPPED AROUND DRAKE’S NECK AND IS PULLING WITH ALL HIS MIGHT!

James Peters: HE’S GOT DRAKE’S NECK AT A RIDICULOUS ANGLE AND IS TRYING TO STRANGLE HIM TO DEATH WITH THIS TAPE! WAIT, DRAKE IS ALMOST OUT, HE MIGHT’VE PASSED OUT, HIS FACE IS PURPLE AND HE ISN’T MOVING-

Persephone: SNAP! THAT TAPE GIVES WAY AND THEY BOTH FALL TO THE CANVAS! OH MY GOD, DRAKE WAS SECONDS FROM DEFEAT AND THAT TAPE GAVE WAY! JUSTIN NEARLY HAD THIS WIN AND THAT TAPE SNAPS AT THE VERY FINAL SECONDS! COME ON MAN! THE LIMP BODY OF DRAKE KING IS BEING DRAGGED ACROSS THIS BLOOD-RED WOOD AS JUSTIN WINDGATE CALLS FOR DRAKE TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! DRAKE CAN BARELY MOVE, BUT JUSTIN KNOWS HE HAS TO STRIKE NOW!!

James Peters: DRAKE KING INCHING TO HIS UNSTABLE FEET AND JUSTIN ROARS OUT WITH A SPEAR- ‘ASCENSION’!!!!! THAT ‘ASCENSION’ ON THE WOOD AND OH MY HEAVENS, WHAT A COUNTER FROM DRAKE! HE TURNED THIS MATCH AROUND IN A HEARTBEAT AND HAS JUSTIN DOWN AND OUT! JUSTIN ISN’T MOVING AND DRAKE NOW LIFTS JUSTIN TO HIS FEET AND LEANS HIM AGAINST THE ROPES, DRAKE KING BOUNDS OF THE SECOND ROPE, DESTROYS THE FACE OF JUSTIN WITH A ‘GULLOTINEEEEEEEEE’!!!!!! THAT RUNNING SICK KICK TO THE FACE!!! JUSTIN SLAMMED TO THE CANVAS! IT’S OVER, DRAKE KING OUT OF NOWHERE, SILENCES THIS ARENA AND SILENCES THE WORLD!! HE COVERS WINDGATE FOR ONE FINAL TIME!!!!!

James Peters: KICKOUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!! HE KICKED OUT ALDLODFKFFFJKSLSLSLO!!!! HE KICKED OUT, SHOT THE SHOULDER UP WITH A SLIVER OF A SECOND LEFT AND SOMEHOW STAYED ALIVE IN THIS MATCH! DRAKE JUST FELL BACK ONTO THAT WOOD FLOORING AND RAN HIS HANDS THROUGH HIS HAIR! HE CAN’T BELIEVE THAT JUSTIN IS STILL IN THIS! THESE TWO HAVE FIGHTING SPIRIT LIKE NO OTHER, THIS LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THIS IS PRO-WRESTLING! THIS IS ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING, THIS IS VOLTAGE!!!

(NOW Arena is exploding and buzzing at the kickout of Justin Windgate.)

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE IS ALIVE AND THIS MATCH IS SOMEHOW STILL GOING! THESE TWO ARE BEATEN AND BLOODIED, THERE’S BLADES, BATS, CHAINSAWS, AND BLOODY TAPE ALL AROUND THIS BROKEN DOWN RING WITH NO CANVAS, BUT THESE TWO MEN ARE SOMEHOW STILL VYING FOR THE TITLE OF VOLTAGE’S BEST! IT DOESN’T GET BETTER THAN THIS! BLOOD IS TRICKLING DOWN DRAKE’S FACE AND CHEST AS HE ROCKS AGAINST THE ROPES, WONDERING JUST WHAT IN THE WORLD WILL PUT JUSTIN WINDGATE DOWN FOR GOOD?!

James Peters: They’re both getting back to their knees now and are staring each other down! This blood-deep feud looks as if it will never be over! These two men are scowling at one another and if you thought that a grueling and bloody war between these two would earn mutual respect, you were wrong! They won’t stop, until one is down for good! Until one of them can physically no longer compete inside of an EAW ring! AND HERE THEY GO! DRAKE KING WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE! JUSTIN RETURNS FIRE, DRAKE NOW GOES FOR A LARIAT AND JUSTIN AVOIDS IT, TAKES THE CHAMPION’S BACK AND LEAPS FOR A NECKBREAKER!!!

Rich Russillo: NO! DRAKE TURNS IT AROUND AND GRABS JUSTIN IN AN INVERTED DDT POSITION! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND SPINS HIM AROUND, THEN DROPS HIM NECK FIRST WITH A ‘DAWN OF JUSTICE’!!!! ‘DAWN OF JUSTICE’ LANDS IN FULL FORCE FOR DRAKE KING, WHO NOW LOOKS OVER AND SEES THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY LAYING ON THE CANVAS! HE GRABS IT AND WALKS BACK OVER TO JUSTIN WINDGATE, HIS BLOOD STAINING THE PAGES, HE LAYS IT ON THE GROUND AND PLACES JUSTIN’S HEAD ON THE BOOK, OH MY, HE’S LOOKING FOR ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’!!! HE WANTS TO STOMP THE HAD OF JUSTIN ONTO THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY, A SYMBOL OF THE NEW EDEN CODE OF LAW!!

James Peters: DRAKE COMES OFF THE ROPES AND LOOKS FOR ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’!!! IT DOESN’T CONNECT AS JUSTIN WINDGATE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! HE PICKS THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY UP AND SMASHES IT AGAINST THE FACE OF DRAKE! THE POETIC JUSTICE, THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY CRACKS THE NOSE OF DRAKE KING AND HE SLAMS AGAINST THE CANVAS! DRAKE IS DOWN AND JUSTIN ROLLS OUTSIDE THE RING TO GRAB…THE LIGHTER?! IS THIS MAN ABOUT TO HIT A BLUNT WHEN HE HAS DRAKE KING NEARLY BEAT!!?!

Rich Russillo: I DON’T THINK SO, LOOK AT HIM, HE’S HOLDING UP THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY IN FRONT OF DRAKE KING! HE’S FORCING DRAKE TO WATCH AS HE NOW SETS ABLAZE THE BOOK OF DRISTIANITY! HE SETS THE BOOK ON FIRE AND THROWS IT ONTO THE CANVAS! DRAKE CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES, HE’S IN SHOCK! JUSTIN WINDGATE THROWS A MIDDLE FINGER HIS WAY AND DRAKE LOSES IT!

James Peters: FOOT ON THE ROPE!! DRAKE KING GOT HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE AT THE VERY LAST SECOND AND JUSTIN WINDGATE IS CRYING OUT IN DISBELIEF, HE’S ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE, HE CAN’T BELIEVE DRAKE KING GOT THE FOOT ON THE ROPE! HOW THE HELL DID DRAKE SURVIVE THAT, HE CAN’T BE HUMAN?! SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT HIS METHODS AND HIS MOTIVES, BUT THIS FORTITUDE AND DRIVE TO ACHIEVE HIS GOALS ARE SOMETHING ELSE, SHOWING THE WORLD RIGHT NOW WHY HE IS THE REIGNING WORLD CHAMPION!

(Crowd erupts as Drake got the foot on the ropes, some boo, but many chant for these two; “FIGHT FOREVER! FIGHT FOREVER! FIGHT FOREVER!”)

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE WIPES THE BLOOD FROM HIS EYES AND PICKS DRAKE BACK UP, PULLING HIM BY THE HAIR AND JUST TRYING TO KEEP DRAKE ON HIS FEET! HE CAN’T EVEN DO IT! HE CAN’T GET DRAKE TO STAY ON HIS FEET, DRAKE IS EXHAUSTED AND WORN, HE JUST CAN’T FIND ANY MORE STRENGTH!

Persephone: JUSTIN WINDGATE MAY HAVE FOUND AN ALTERNATIVE! HE DRAGS THE BODY OF DRAKE ONTO THAT EXPOSED WOOD RING AND LOOKS AT THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! OH MY GOD, JUSTIN WINDGATE ISN’T GONNA DO IT!! HE’S CLIMBED TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE AND IS EYEING DRAKE KING, HE’S GONNA FLY WITH THE ‘X-FACTOR’!!! THAT WOULD SURELY END THIS MATCH- WAIT, WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING?!

Rich Russillo: THAT SECOND TURNBUCKLE WASN’T ENOUGH, JUSTIN WINDGATE IS ON THE TOP OF THE RING POST, HE CLIMBED TO THE TOP OF THE RING POST AND IT MUST FEEL LIKE HE’S ON TOP OF EVEREST RIGHT NOW!!! HE LOOKS DOWN AT DRAKE AND THAT BURNED BOOK OF DRISTNIATY! HE KNOWS THAT HE’S SLAIN NEW EDEN BY THE WAYSIDE! JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH HIS HANDS TO THE SKY, HE FLIEEEESSSSSSS WITH THE ‘X-FACTORRRRRRRRRRR’!!!!!!!!

James Peters: DRAKE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, DRAKE MOVED AND JUSTIN SLAMS AGAINST THAT WOOD FLOORING FACE FIRST!!!! OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, STOP THIS MATCH AND GET SOME MEDICAL DOWN HERE, THIS CAN’T GO ON!!!! JUSTIN WINDGHATE JUST TRIED THAT HUGE SHOOTING STAR FROM THE TOP OF THE RING POST AND LANDED FLAT ON THE WOOD! HE’S DOWN AND OUT AND DRAKE KING SOMEHOW IS BACK TO HIS FEET!

Persephone: HE GRABS THAT BURNT BOOK OF DRISTIANITY, SLOWLY FLAKING AWAY AS ASH AND HE KNOWS THAT JUSTIN WINDGATE NEEDS TO PAY FOR WHAT HE DID! DRAKE KING ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND GRABS THAT CHAINSAW!!! DRAKE KING, CHAINSAW IN HAND, ROLLS IN THE RING AND TURNS IT ON! OH MAN, DRAKE, HE’S BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH!!! DRAKE KING-

James Peters: WHAT IN GOD’S NAME?! DRAKE JUST PUT THAT CHAINSAW THROUGH THE WOOD AND CREATED A HOLE IN THE FLOOR, DRAKE PUTS THAT CHAINSAW THROUGH THE WOOD AND NOW THROWS IT TO THE SIDE! HE DRAGS WINDGATE’S BODY ACROSS THE RING AND PLACES HIS HEAD OVER THIS SAWED HOLE!!! WHAT IN THE,- WAIT, NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! OH MY GOD, NO, NO!!!!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE COMES OFF THE ROPES WITH A ‘JUDGMENT DAY’ STOMP THAT SENDS JUSTIN WINDGATE’S HEAD RIGHT THROUGH THE FLOORBOARDS!!!! HE ACTUALLY SENT HIS HEAD THROUGH THE RING BOARDS AND JUSTIN WINDGATE HAS GONE COMPLETELY LIMP! OH MY GOD!!! DRAKE LITERALLY CURB-STOMPED HIS HEAD THROUGH THE FLOOR AND JUSTIN WINDGATE ISN’T EVEN CONSCIOUS ANYMORE! DRAKE FALLS TO THE CANVAS AND CAN’T EVEN COVER HIM, HE’S SO EXHAUSTED!!

James Peters: THE REFEREE IS ASKING JUSTIN WINDGATE IF HE CAN CONTINUE, BUT THERE’S NO ANSWER! THE REFEREE IS ON THE VERGE OF CALLING THIS MATCH, WE MAY NOT EVEN NEED A PIN FALL RO SUBMISSION, I DON’T KNOW IF JUSTIN WINDGATE CAN CONTINUE! DRAKE KING IN THE CORNER, TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF TO HIS FEET, JUSTIN WINDGATE BARELY RAISING HIS HEAD OFF THE CANVAS AND TRYING TO COLLECT HIMSELF-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE LOOKS AT THE BOOK ONE MORE TIME AND GLARES BACK AT JUSTIN WINDGATE! DRAKE KING STORMS OUT OF THE CORNER AND THIS TIME LANDS THE ‘BOOK OF DRISTNAINITYYYYY’ RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE!!! RIGHT TO THE SKULL AND THAT ONE WHIPLASHED JUSTIN’S NECK AROUND AND PUT HIM OUT COLD! BLOOD SPLATTERED EVERYWHERE AND THE REFEREE HAS SEEN ENOUGH! HE CALLS FOR THE TIME KEEPER TO RING THE BELL! IT’S OVER!!

DING! DING! DING!

(‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer begins to sound throughout the arena as the crowd is silenced by Drake King’s actions. They can’t believe this match ended so violently and are booing loudly as Drake lays exhausted against the canvas. There’s blood everywhere and even the referee has it on his shirt and pants. He tends to Justin Windgate as he hangs his jaw open and doesn’t move on the canvas.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, DUE TO A REFEREE STOPPAGE, HERE IS YOUR WINNER….ANNDDDDD STILLLLLLLLLL!!!!! REIGNING EAW WORLD CHAMPION, DRAKEEEEEEEEEEE ‘THEEEEEEE REDEEEEEEEEEMERRRRRRRRRRRR’!!!!!

(Crowd boos as Drake is handed a rag by ringside officials to wipe the blood from his face.)

James Peters: Oh my god. We knew this would be bad, we knew it would be brutal and a war until the very end, but man, it got so bad to where even the referee knew a pinfall wouldn’t be the most merciful option. He had to stop this match and rightfully done, Justin is still out cold and God knows how his future looks after a match like this.

Rich Russillo: Drake too, this was back and forth and both men gave each other scars that will never leave them. Physically and mentally. Drake’s finger looks like it’s hanging on by skin alone and Justin looks like he needs to be taken out on a stretcher. I mean this match will change both of them forever and they’ll never forget it. A personal rivalry and an even more personal match. I can’t imagine two competitors going to further lengths just to call themselves champion, but we said it earlier, they fought for some much more tonight. And my god, did they fight.

Persephone: Matches don’t often leave you speechless, never really, but right now, man, I just can’t look at the broken bodies of these men and come up with apt words for this match. I can’t stand either of these men, but they proved tonight that they’d go to any length for their goals, that’s not something that anybody can deny, no matter personal feelings.

Rich Russillo: We all are a little speechless right now, I mean, look at Drake, he won this match and he can barely move. He’s laying against the bottom turnbuckle and staring stoically at Justin Windgate, who’s being treated by medical personnel and likely being taken out of here in an ambulance. These two men left it all out here and would have literally died for this result tonight.

(Drake rolls out of the ring and the rest of New Eden, Myles and Minerva come down to the ring to help walk Drake up the ring. He’s still bleeding and dripping blood on that world title, which he loosely wears around his shoulder, unsure if he even has the title or not, he’s still out of it. New Eden stops at the top of the ramp and Drake drops his title to the ground, the three of them stare down at the ring as Justin Windgate is barely coming to consciousness.)

James Peters: I mean that was just…shocking.

(New Eden looks down the ramp as Drake gets blood on both Myles and Minerva. They all wear the scars of one another and look out into the NOW arena to a chorus of boos as New Eden stands atop the world. Still atop EAW and still atop it all. The last shot of New Eden at the stage is shown while the shot begins to transition back to present-day Sunday Night Voltage.)

(Voltage returns to ringside, and “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff begins to play as Madison Kaline makes her way onto the Voltage stage amidst a grand reaction. The crowd gives her a bit more of a positive reaction after all she has gone through as she clutches at her abdomen and somewhat sluggishly makes her way down the stage.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN…INTRODUCING THE EAW HALL OF FAME COMPETITOR, MADISON “MISTRESS OF DEATHHH” KALINEEEEEEEE!!!!

(The crowd cheers as Madison slightly smiles, then winces in pain as she steps through the ropes and is handed a microphone.)

Madison Kaline: You know…

(Voltage crowd quiets down as she begins to speak.)

Madison Kaline: It’s bittersweet. It’s bittersweet to be so close to Pain For Pride, yet still where it feels like I’m so far from my opponent. I don’t want to wait one more day to get my boot planted against the back of her neck, but at least we’re on the doorstep of it. Truthfully, I shouldn’t even be surprised. After King of Elite, what else could be in store? What else could my opponent pull from out her sleeve that would surprise me? Shock me? Make me look at her differently? I can’t see her differently now than I have been for weeks. Yet, still, somehow I found myself with a new brand of blade in my back every other week. Last week was no different and it was exactly what we can now come to expect from my opponent at Pain For Pride. Cheapshots and low blows because she isn’t capable of anything else. She isn’t the kind of person or competitor who could muster even a shred of courage, valor, or any other moral that requires her to handle her emotions face to face. You’re not that person, are you-

Madison Kaline: Amber Keys.

(The crowd boos heavily as Madison continues to speak.)

Madison Kaline: Last week, we were a team, Amber and I. EAW loves to pit two bitter foes alongside one another and just see what the hell happens. We won the match and then afterwards, I was attacked and left in the ring battered. Now, What goes around comes right back around. I know that this has been back and forth, but it’s clear who began this and who shattered what was one of the greatest stables, statements, and teams in EAW history. See, I’ve given back what she’s given me, but all she’s been interested in doing these past few weeks is making my life a living hell and reminding the world that she was always simply jealous of me. She was. She is. Tired of living in my shadow, tired of feeling like she couldn’t shine on her own and was brought to the success she has, so she’s tried to make herself feel better by destroying me. She wants to wreck my career and for so long has been desperately trying to.

(The crowd hushes as Madison holds up a finger towards them.)

Madison Kaline: I’m done with it. So I meant that it was bittersweet because yes, I’ll be forced to wait one more week to finally get my hands on Amber Keys, but when I do it will have all been worth it for me. It won’t be for her. She will have shattered whatever career she had left and revealed herself to be an insecure little leech. There will be no running, no hiding, no cowardice at Pain For Pride, she’ll be forced to face not only the truth about herself, but all of the anger and all of the frustration that’s been building up for weeks now. This match is all I’ve been waiting for so long and amidst other lost opportunities and chances that have slipped through my fingers, I can promise you all this- this one won’t.

(The Voltage crowd cheers as Madison’s voice becomes more empassioned.)

Madison Kaline: Amber Keys is going to pay for what she’s done and for all the wreckage she’s caused since returning. For every knife she’s put in my back and for every time she’s turned the knife, I’m coming with a vengeance and I’m going to give back to you absolutely all of the pain you caused me. Last week was just a reminder as to the newfound standard we’re all holding you to and a reminder of how prepared I’m going to make sure I am for Pain For Pride. I’m going to plant my boot down on this miserable state of your career and let EAW call it a run on Amber Keys. I’m going to enjoy hurting you and I’m going to make sure this is your last stand in EAW. I’m going to be the sword through the neck of an already stained and tarnished legacy. I’ll be doing you a favor and preventing you from destroying any more of whatever status you still have for all those years you held onto the coattails of The Queen’s Court. My boot is still good for stomping out the vermin of EAW and I’m going to do just that come Pain For Pride-

(“All It Takes For Your Dreams To Come True” begins to ring throughout the arena as Amber Keys emphatically makes her way onto the stage. She’s welcomed by an echo of boos and chour of insults and names, but she doesn’t hesitate to stare right down the ramp at Madison.)

Amber Keys: Really? I’m just gonna stop you there and tell you how honestly disappointed I am. I thought I’d be facing someone I knew to be a warrior, a fighter and a dog. You’re bitching and moaning about narratives with absolutely no substance behind them.

(The crowd boos Amber as she slowly approaches the edge of the stage.)

Amber Keys: I was carried to my success? By you? I’ve proven myself time and time again, I wear that same hall of fame stripe you do across my chest, I pioneered women’s wrestling and made it into more than some drawing board idea. What if any of that says I needed to be dragged across the finish line, ESPECIALLY by someone like you?

Madison Kaline: You’re the same-

Amber Keys: No, no because it’s comical how truly stupid you sound. Sitting on your moral high horse when all you’ve been doing for weeks is ignoring the cold, hard to face, blunt facts sitting right in front of you, Madison.

Madison Kaline: Yeah? What would those be?

Amber Keys: Those would be an undeserved and unearned shot at the Universal Women’s Championship on the road to Pain For Pride. Which you lost. Then you were given ANOTHER opportunity again at Battle of Egypt, how did that end? You lost. Loss after loss, defeat after defeat, disappointment through and through. It’s all right in front of you, in fact, EAW’s been trying to spoon feed it to you Ms. Legend. Ms. Hall of Fame has been spoon-fed her chances on a silver platter and still let it slip through her old, withered fingers.

(Madison stands in the ring with nothing but contempt for Amber, though isn’t speaking back.)

Amber Keys: You’re feeling that creep up your spine, your body temperature rises and you get all clammy and unsure because you’re finally seeing your truth for what it really is. Funny now how you thought it would be me who sees her truth, but you’re the one who’s been failing to capitalize on any and every chance thrown your way this season.

Madison Kaline: You’d know what it’s like to watch your opportunities go down the drain, huh? You’d know what it’s like to feel like you were never individually good enough to be your own star and that no matter the accolades on your record, they’ll never actually reflect someone special to EAW or its history. Pain For Pride doesn’t change that, I’ll make sure it only cements it. Buries your legacy in the dirt where it belongs.

Amber Keys: You’re right! YOU’RE RIGHT! Pain For Pride doesn’t change anything! Not for me, not for you. Pain For Pride for you, even with a win, is just one win in a streak full of losses and poor performances. Let downs and wasted opportunities define you right now and Pain For Pride won’t erase that away. I’m there to make sure it only remains as what defines the complacent, wasted, washed Madison Kaline.

(The crowd boos Amber as she gets closer to the ring and walks down the ramp.)

Amber Keys: This Pain For Pride will be a monument to just how far you’ve sunken into the mud of your own lies and idiocy. And when I beat you, when I hurt you and when I cause your world to go into a state of chaos- then there will be no denying me. You will no longer be able to fall back on believing, saying, or even whispering the lie that Amber Keys couldn’t stand on her own two feet. Your lies are going up in smoke and so are your Pain For Pride dreams, Madison.

(Amber turns her back and walks up the ramp.)

Madison Kaline: I agree, Amber, I agree that at Pain For Pride this will be settled. I’m glad we both know it, but it’s going to end with you being silenced for the final time. This won’t be some after hours attack or cheap shot from behind, this will be you meeting your end in EAW and the final chapter of an era that you decided to rip apart. After I’ve beaten you, any notion that Madison Kaline needs to be given or “spoon fed” her opportunities will be squashed because it will be another Hall of Fame worthy win on my belt at Pain For Pride. I’m coming to put an exclamation point on what, you’re right, hasn’t been the season I thought it would. But moreover, I’m coming to also put an end to the goliath sized thorn in my side, Amber Keys. Someone this company should’ve been done with years ago. I’m going to be the one to slam the door in your face so you can stop trying to put one foot in the door and the other in whatever your life has become these days.

(Amber Keys picks up the microphone again.)

Amber Keys: No matter what you say, no matter what you do….

(Amber walks down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Amber Keys: I will always beat you. I will always hold your neck in the noose and never let it loose. I will always have been the one to preserve their legacy and uphold it by whatever means necessary. I will always be timeless, your time is almost at its end.

(Amber enters the ring and gets in the face of Madison, who doesn’t budge.)

Amber Keys: At Pain For Pride, the final nail will be driven into the coffin of Madison Kaline and your ultimate “truth” will become a nightmare. I’ll be your last fatal blow and I’ll ensure with everything inside me that you don’t ever come crawling back to me, to EAW, or to this industry again.

(Amber Keys drops the microphone and gets nose to nose with Madison Kaline, who stares eye to eye with her. Both women stand firm and steadfast in their position. They have an intense staredown as the crowd cheers loudly for both. Neither woman moves an inch and they begin to speak to one another as the camera zooms out and captures this electric crowd. The shot shows them one last time eye to eye and then fades to commercial break.)

[SCREENBAR: BLOODSPORT 2021 – MS. EXTREME VS. HIKARI KANNO; SCAFFOLD MATCH FOR THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP]

(Sunday Night Voltage then goes to a shot of the Scaffold Match which has been set up. Far above the ring is the scaffold, where the match will start off, and already on top of the scaffold is a referee, who’s holding onto the railing at the end of the scaffold out of fear. Under the scaffold is a barbed-wire net which is stretched out across the entire ring, and there’s another referee on top of the net, wearing protective gear as they’ll likely have to count pinfalls on the net.)

(The camera pans over towards a barber’s chair by ringside, and the crowd begins cheering even louder as they know that this is the next part of the stipulation. Whoever loses the match has to have their hair shaved off.)

(Finally, the camera fades to Bella Braxton, who’s holding a microphone in her hand.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen…. The following contest is A CHAMPIONSHIP VERSUS HAIR SCAFFOLD MATCH, scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Bella Braxton: And it is for the UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

(“Dream In Drive” by the Oral Cigarettes hits, and the crowd begins booing as Hikari Kanno begins to make her way to the stage. Hikari doesn’t pay attention to the boos at all, and instead immediately looks up at the large scaffold that’s above the ring. She begins making her way to the end of the stage and down the ramp, and she looks at the barber’s chair that has the equipment, likely believing that it’ll be Ms. Extreme seated in the chair by the time the match is over. You can see the confident look on Hikari’s face as she makes her way to the end of the ramp, and finally, she looks up at the scaffold, before finally beginning to climb up to the top of it.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…. From Okinawa, Japan…. Weighing in at 121 pounds….. HHHIIIIIIIIKAAAAARRRIIIIII KKKKKAAAANNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

James Peters: This might just be the most personal match on the entire show. A lot has happened between Hikari Kanno and Ms. Extreme, and it all started at the Draft show where Hikari laid out the Champion right after putting out this challenge!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno clearly isn’t afraid of Ms. Extreme judging by the month leading up to this, and seeing the look on her face I don’t think she’s too afraid of the scaffold either! That, or she completely understands that this is what it takes in order for her to become the Universal Women’s Champion.

James Peters: We know how talented Hikari is and we’ve seen IDOL-GUN accomplish great things in the tag division, but this is something else entirely,

Persephone: Who cares???? It doesn’t matter if it’s Hikari, her partner, or some other loser facing Ms. Extreme tonight. All that matters is that this is a scaffold match and someone is going to die.

(As Hikari waits on the side of the scaffold closest to the commentary table, “Throne” by Saint Mesa hits. The crowd explodes as Ms. Extreme begins to walk out with the Universal Women’s Championship. The Champion’s eyes are focused on Hikari Kanno, clearly not worried about the match stipulation whatsoever. These two knew what they were getting themselves into, and at this point, their hatred for each other and their desire to hold the Universal Women’s Championship is more important than anything else. Ms. Extreme doesn’t waste any time as she makes it to the ramp, handing her Championship to an official at ringside before climbing up the ladder.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent…. From Calabasas, California…. Weighing in at 135 pounds…. SHE IS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, MIIISSSSSSSSS EEEXXXTTRREEEEMMEEE!!!!!

James Peters: I can’t even imagine what these two are going to do to each other. A Scaffold match might’ve been the most fitting match possible for these two, but at the same time we know who these two are! We know that they’ll go to great lengths to put their opponent down, and in a personal match like this there’s no telling what will happen.

Rich Russillo: And let’s not forget, at the end of all this someone is going to be humiliated as they have their head shaved in that barber’s chair.

Persephone: I don’t really care who wins this match. The shaving is a bit excessive since the loser will probably be dead, but it’ll be funny watching one of these two go bald so whatever.

(Ms. Extreme makes it to the top of the scaffold, and the officials call for the bell as both competitors stare a hole in each other.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: AND HERE WE GO! THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH IS UNDERWAY AND MS. EXTREME JUST DROPPED HIKARI KANNO WITH A DOUBLE-LEG TAKEDOWN AT THE TOP OF THE SCAFFOLD! HIKARI AND MS. EXTREME ARE IMMEDIATELY STARTING TO PUNCH AWAY AT EACH OTHER, ROLLING AROUND ON THE SCAFFOLD TO TRY AND GET THE UPPER HAND, AND IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG AT ALL FOR THIS TO GET GOING! HIKARI KANNO AND MS. EXTREME’S FEUD HAS BEEN BOILING OVER FOR WEEKS, AND THIS IS WHAT WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! HIKARI KANNO VERSUS MS. EXTREME, WITH THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP AND THEIR HAIR ON THE LINE!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO GETS THE UPPER HAND AS SHE SLAMS THE BACK OF CAMILLE’S HEAD INTO THE SCAFFOLD! HIKARI KANNO PULLS HER UP, AND SHE GOES FOR THE BRIGHTSTAR, BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO LAND ON HER KNEES AND PULL HIKARI KANNO DOWN WITH AN ARM DRAG! MS. EXTREME NOW PULLS HIKARI KANNO UP, AND SHE GOES FOR THE TWIST OF FATE- BUT HIKARI KANNO IS ABLE TO DROP MS. EXTREME BY PULLING HER LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER! HIKARI KANNO NOW GRABS MS. EXTREME, AND SHE THROWS HER OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD!!!!!

Persephone: Stop overreacting you idiot. As amusing as it’d be to watch that adopted joke of a Champion fall to her death, Camille actually managed to just barely stop herself before tripping Hikari’s leg. Camille is beating Hikari down now, and I’ll be honest, this match really has yet to get going. I don’t actually care what happens to these two until someone falls to their death or they’re covered in blood, neither of which has happened yet.

James Peters: WAIT, MS. EXTREME IS TRYING TO SEND HIKARI KANNO OFF OF THE EDGE, BUT HIKARI IS JUST BARELY HANGING ONTO THE SCAFFOLD, BUT SHE’S SAFE! HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO DELIVER A BACK ELBOW TO MS. EXTREME!

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme falls back because of the back elbow, and that gives Hikari Kanno the space to recollect herself and get back up to her feet, all as the Champion does the same! The scaffold’s referee looks worried after both competitors came extremely close to falling off of the platform, BUT NOW THEY’RE BACK TO THEIR FEET AND HIKARI KANNO KICKS MS. EXTREME IN THE MIDSECTION! HIKARI KANNO NOW WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION, AND NOW SHE BEGINS BEATING DOWN THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, GOING OVER AND ATTEMPTING TO SLAM HER INTO THE BARS AT THE END OF THE SCAFFOLD!

Persephone: Camille managed to stop herself, but only before slamming Hikari’s face into the bars herself :yikes:. What are those made out of, steel?

James Peters: :lupe: Probably. If not that then it’s definitely something similar, and Hikari’s face was just smashed right into it! Hikari’s down on a knee holding her nose, probably to make sure it’s not busted- BUT MS. EXTREME IMMEDIATELY KICKS HIKARI IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD, SLAMMING HER FACE BACK INTO THE BARS! MS. EXTREME NOW BEGINNING TO STOMP AWAY AT THE BACK OF HIKARI’S HEAD, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GETTING A BIT OF PAYBACK FOR WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK ON VOLTAGE!

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme pulls Hikari’s head off of the bars, and Hikari’s nose is busted open pretty badly! I don’t think that’s enough for Camille though, AS SHE SLAMS HIKARI’S HEAD BACK INTO THE BARS! If I was Camille I’d definitely go for a cover after that, but I don’t think she wants to let Hikari off that easy! Ms. Extreme now dragging Hikari away from the end of the scaffold where the bars for the ladder were, and she puts Hikari up on her shoulders! I think she might have an idea!

James Peters: MS. EXTREME CONNECTS WITH A FIREMAN’S CARRY STUN GUN, DROPPING HIKARI’S THROAT ONTO THE TOP OF RAILING AT THE END OF THE SCAFFOLD, AND SENDING HIKARI OVER THE RAILING!

Persephone: YES, THERE’S NO BARBED WIRE NET BY THE LADDER, SHE’S GONNA DIE!!! :blessed:!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO, SHE DOESN’T DIE! HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO GRAB THE SIDES OF THE LADDER! HIKARI SLID DOWN THE LADDER A BIT AS SHE FELL, BUT SHE MANAGED TO GET HER FEET ONTO THE RUNGS BEFORE SHE COULD FALL DOWN FAR ENOUGH TO CAUSE AN INJURY!

Persephone: :wtf:

James Peters: Hikari Kanno wipes the blood from her nose before climbing back up the ladder, AND MS. EXTREME GOES TO GRAB HIKARI AS SHE REACHES THE RAILING, BUT HIKARI MANAGED TO PUSH CAMILLE’S ARM AWAY BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A FOREARM! HIKARI KANNO CLIMBS UP ON TOP OF THE RAILING, AND SHE JUMPS AT MS. EXTREME BEFORE DELIVERING A DIVING CLOTHESLINE! It’s such a good thing that Hikari Kanno managed to come to her senses in time there! If she didn’t then she would’ve fell right out to ringside, and I don’t think any of us wants that!… Except Persephone.

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno gets back up to her feet, and Ms. Extreme is trying to get back up, BUT HIKARI KANNO STOMPS AT THE SIDE OF MS. EXTREME’S HEAD! Camille rolls onto her stomach after that stomp, AND NOW HIKARI KANNO GRABS ONTO MS. EXTREME’S ARM BEFORE BEGINNING TO REPEATEDLY STOMP AT THE BACK OF HER HEAD! THIS MATCH IS STARTING TO GET REALLY NASTY, AND THESE TWO ARE STILL ON TOP OF THE SCAFFOLD! Clearly these two don’t actually care where it is they’re fighting at, they just want to beat the hell out of each other, become Universal Women’s Champion, and cause their opponent to lose their hair!

Persephone: Ms. Adoption’s probably been knocked out by those stomps, but it doesn’t look like Hikari plans to stop. She must have a chip on her shoulder the size of planet Earth seeing as her last free-per-view appearance was losing a title match to Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams :mjlol:. Hikari Kanno drags Camille over towards the railing at the end of the scaffold, and she’s choking Camille using the railing :oh:!!!

James Peters: PERSEPHONE’S RIGHT, HIKARI KANNO HAS ONE OF HER ARMS UNDER THE TOP BAR OF THE RAILING AND THE OTHER OVER CAMILLE’S NECK, AND SHE HAS HER ARMS TOGETHER SO SHE COULD PRESS CAMILLE’S THROAT INTO THE BAR! THE REFEREE NOW FORCED TO GET INVOLVED AS THEY ASK IF MS. EXTREME IS GOING TO GIVE UP, BUT I THINK WE ALL KNOW MS. EXTREME WELL ENOUGH TO REALIZE THAT SHE’D NEVER QUIT NO MATTER WHAT! I don’t think she has much of a choice right now though! That’s a metal bar being pressed against her throat, she might end up passing out!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno has quickly proven to be one of the most talented Elitists we have especially when it comes to her work with submissions, BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO HIT HIKARI KANNO WITH THE BACK OF HER FIST! MS. EXTREME STILL HAS FIGHT LEFT IN HER CLEARLY! SHE’S NOT WILLING TO LOSE THIS MATCH JUST YET! MS. EXTREME HAS FIGHT LEFT IN HER, BUT THAT FIGHT IS SLOWLY DETERIORATING AS THIS MATCH PROGRESSES AND CAMILLE STAYS IN THIS SUBMISSION! HIKARI KANNO CLEARLY KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT SHE’S DOING, AND THAT’S BAD NEWS FOR THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!

Persephone: But it’s good news to me, because these two still have yet to actually fall off the scaffold and kill each other, and if that’s not happening then this match might as well just end already. On the bright side, at least Camille won’t have to be awake while she gets her head shaved.

James Peters: I don’t know if she’ll be getting a haircut at all though, BECAUSE SHE JUST BARELY MANAGED TO GET HIKARI WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE MIDSECTION, AND THAT ELBOW HIT HARD ENOUGH TO CAUSE HIKARI TO FINALLY LET GO OF CAMILLE! MS. EXTREME IS FREED, AND SHE QUICKLY TURNS AROUND BEFORE HITTING ONE HALF OF THE FORMER UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS WITH A FOREARM!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO RESPONDS BY KICKING MS. EXTREME IN THE MIDSECTION AND GRABBING HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK- BUT MS. EXTREME CHARGES INTO THE OPPOSITE END OF THE SCAFFOLD AND RAMS HIKARI INTO THE RAILING ON THAT END OF IT! The entire scaffold just started teetering because of that, and you can see from the look on the referee’s face just how terrifying that must be! Ms. Extreme and Hikari Kanno are clearly too focused on tearing each other apart to care though, as Ms. Extreme starts to back up before charging in!

James Peters: CODE RED INTO THE METAL RAILING!!! MS. EXTREME JUST SENT HIKARI KANNO BACK FIRST INTO THE METAL RAILING, AND THAT MIGHT’VE JUST KNOCKED HIKARI KANNO’S LIGHTS OUT! HIKARI KANNO MIGHT BE OUT, AND NOW THIS IS MS. EXTREME’S TIME TO CAPITALIZE!

Persephone: There’s really only two good options here. Pin Hikari and get the match over with, or toss Hikari off of the scaffold and kill her. I think I’d prefer the second one, but I guess both are fine.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme pulls Hikari Kanno back up, and Hikari really doesn’t look too good! She still has blood coming from her nose and she barely even looks conscious, AND MS. EXTREME USES THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY AND DUMP HIKARI KANNO OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD, AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE OPEN SIDES WHERE HIKARI WOULD LAND ON THE BARBED WIRE NET! MS. EXTREME IS TRYING TO DUMP HIKARI KANNO OVER THE RAILING WHERE SHE’D FALL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO RINGSIDE WITHOUT ANYTHING TO BREAK HER FALL, AND HIKARI IS BARELY HOLDING ONTO THE RAILING TO STOP HERSELF!

Persephone: COME ON!!! DUMP HER OVER THE RAILING! KILL HER 👏! KILL HER 👏! KILL HER 👏!

James Peters: HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO HIT CAMILLE WITH A FOREARM AND PULL HERSELF BACK ONTO THE SCAFFOLD, BUT MS. EXTREME KICKS HIKARI IN THE STOMACH! Camille now grabbing onto Hikari’s arm, AND SHE SLAMS IT ONTO THE TOP OF THE METAL RAILING! Hikari Kanno is in a ton of pain, and she’s clearly still feeling the effects of the Code Red as she’s having some trouble actually fighting back! Ms. Extreme promised to tear Hikari apart in the build to Bloodsport, and with Hikadi in this condition she might be able to do whatever she wants to her!

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme grabs Hikari Kanno in a front facelock, AND NOW SHE LIFTS HIKARI UP-

Rich Russillo: NO! HIKARI KANNO PULLS HERSELF DOWN, AND SHE LIFTS CAMILLE UP BEFORE QUICKLY DROPPING HER STOMACH-FIRST ONTO THE RAILING OF THE SCAFFOLD! MS. EXTREME WAS JUST DROPPED ONTO THE RAILING, AND NOW SHE’S PRETTY MUCH HANGING ON THE RAILING! Hikari Kanno backs up, slowly getting back to her feet as she’s still processing the Code Red into the railing, and I think she has something on her mind! This really isn’t looking good for Camille!

James Peters: HIKARI KANNO CHARGES IN, AND SHE KICKS CAMILLE OFF OF THE RAILING WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE!!! CAMILLE FALLS OFF THE EDGE OF THE SCAFFOLD AND THERE’S NO BARBED WIRE NET TO LAND ON!!!!!

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME JUST BARELY MANAGES TO GRAB ONTO THE LADDER AS SHE SLIDES DOWN IT, AND FINALLY SHE MANAGES TO STOP HERSELF! Hikari Kanno is taking the time to recover, and I think she’s a bit surprised that Ms. Extreme actually managed to survive that! It’s Ms. Extreme she’s dealing with though, and I don’t think we can really be too surprised knowing the type of competitor she is!

Persephone: I’m not surprised… Just disappointed :will:.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme climbs back up the ladder after that scare, and you have to wonder how Camille feels after that! I get that she’s the fearless type of Elitist, but she could’ve been seriously injured there, or worse! There would’ve been nothing to break that fall, and even if I gave the exact height of that scaffold, it wouldn’t do justice to just how big of a deal a fall from up there really is! Ms. Extreme keeps climbing back up the ladder, and it’s clear that she’s not giving up on this match no matter what! Camille finally makes it to the railing-

Rich Russillo: BUT HIKARI KANNO GRABS CAMILLE’S HEAD AND SMASHES IT ONTO THE TOP OF THE RAILING! CAMILLE NEARLY FALLS OFF OF THE LADDER, BUT SHE HAS JUST ENOUGH AWARENESS TO KEEP ONE OF HER HANDS ON THE LADDER RUNG! Camille is just barely holding on here, and these two clearly don’t care about each other’s well being here! They clearly just want to derail each other’s careers on top of taking the Universal Women’s Championship and their opponents hair!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme grabs onto the railing and continues climbing up, AND CAMILLE HITS HIKARI WITH A FOREARM TO CREATE SPACE BETWEEN THE TWO! Hikari definitely wanted to hit another huge move which likely would’ve taken Camille off of that ladder, but Ms. Extreme managed to save things for herself with that forearm! Hikari Kanno charges back in, but Camille manages to hit her with a second forearm! Ms. Extreme now pulling herself over the railing before quickly rolling back to her feet, and-

Rich Russillo: AND MS. EXTREME JUST ROLLED RIGHT INTO HIKARI KANNO’S GRASP! HIKARI KANNO JUST CAUGHT MS. EXTREME, AND NOW SHE LIFTS HER UP BEFORE DELIVERING THE BRIGHTSTAR!!! THE BRIGHTSTAR CONNECTS ON MS. EXTREME, AND THESE TWO HAVE BEEN FIGHTING ON TOP OF THE SCAFFOLD FOR THIS ENTIRE MATCH SO FAR, BUT THAT MIGHT JUST END UP BEING ENOUGH FOR THEM, BECAUSE I THINK THIS ONE IS OVER! HIKARI KANNO WITH THE FIRST AND QUITE POSSIBLY THE LAST COVER OF THIS MATCH!

OOOOOOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHRRRRRRRRR-

Persephone: CAMILLE GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!! I kinda hoped the match ended there, but that actually gave me a bit of hope that these two will finally decide to murder one another :blessed:!

James Peters: Hikari Kanno sits against the railing, and she just shakes her head with a look of disgust following Camille’s kick out! Ms. Extreme has a small cut on her forehead after the way Hikari slammed her head into the railing, and it looks like she’s out of it but somehow she actually managed to keep herself in this match! Ms. Extreme has been known to be able to take a lot of damage though. If anything she’s earned the name “Ms. Extreme” a long time ago, and this scaffold match might not be enough to stop her!

Rich Russillo: I think you’re speaking too soon. Hikari Kanno is still the one in control, and it looks like you might be forgetting that! Ms. Extreme is trying to grab onto something to help her get back to her feet, but Hikari’s gotten back up and is standing in front of the railing! HIKARI KICKS CAMILLE IN THE FACE, DROPPING HER BACK DOWN! The referee is looking on in concern as this match continues, and there really isn’t a whole lot these two could do to each other up there, but they’ve been getting creative and that might not be stopping now!

James Peters: Hikari Kanno pulls Ms. Extreme up in a full nelson submission, and I think she has an idea but at this point I’m honestly kind of scared, because these two are clearly willing to kill each other in order to get this match done! Ms. Extreme has no fight in her at this point, AND THAT ALLOWS HIKARI KANNO TO DELIVER A DRAGON SUPLEX, SENDING THE BACK OF CAMILLE’S HEAD INTO THE TOP OF THE RAILING! HIKARI KANNO JUST SENT THE BACK OF MS. EXTREME’S HEAD INTO THE RAILING, AND IF SHE WASN’T KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS BEFORE THEN SHE SHOULD BE NOW! Hikari Kanno has a slight grin forming on her face, and it looks like that went according to plan!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno grabs Camille by the head, and she immediately locks in a sleeper hold! That chokehold immediately brought Camille back to life as she feels Hikari’s arm being pressed against her throat, and now she has to fight out of this or else she’ll be choked right out of her Universal Women’s Championship reign, and I doubt she has much fight left in her after everything we’ve seen in this match already!

Persephone: :yikes: Camille is really about to lose her title to some talentless OnlyFans whore, and by submission too. I’d say she’s going out sad… But it’s Ms. Extreme. This might be one of the most depressing Universal Women’s Championship matches we’ve ever had and the last one had Darcy May Morgan in it.

James Peters: At this point Ms. Extreme can probably feel the Championship slipping through her fingers, and it’s sad to say but this might already be it! Ms. Extreme might actually be out-

Rich Russillo: NO! MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO POWER HERSELF UP TO HER FEET, BUT HIKARI KANNO STILL HAS THE SUBMISSION LOCKED IN, AND NOW SHE JUMPS ONTO CAMILLE’S BACK TO MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT FOR HER! MS. EXTREME IS STILL ON HER FEET AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S TRYING AS HARD AS SHE POSSIBLY CAN TO STAY CONSCIOUS, BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG THAT CAN REALLY LAST! WAIT, WHAT IS CAMILLE DOING!?

Persephone: :oh: It looks like Camille’s backpedaling towards the edge of the side of the scaffold. Is she gonna try and sacrifice herself or something just to get out of the submission? Because I’d love to see them both fall off of it right now.

James Peters: WAIT, I THINK HIKARI TOOK NOTICE OF CAMILLE’S PLAN THOUGH, BECAUSE SHE JUST BARELY DROPPED DOWN TO HER FEET BEFORE CAMILLE COULD REACH THE EDGE, AND NOW HIKARI SHOVES CAMILLE TO THE OTHER SIDE! Ms. Extreme just barely manages to stop herself before she could fall off of the scaffold, and now she turns back around to-

Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO JUST CHARGED AT MS. EXTREME, AND SHE JUST SPEARED MS. EXTREME OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD!!!! HIKARI KANNO JUST TOOK BOTH HERSELF AND CAMILLE OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD, AND BOTH ELITISTS CRASH INTO THE BARBED WIRE NET!!!

Persephone: :blessed:!!!!!!

James Peters: Both Hikari and Camille are down on the barbed wire net, and I think Hikari might’ve been hoping that she’d land on Camille and get a cover but unfortunately things didn’t work out that way, and instead both Elitists took some huge damage with that fall! Neither woman is moving right now, and I can’t believe what we just saw! That’s a barbed wire net, and both competitors’ exposed skin are now being forced to endure the pain of barbed wire slicing them!

Rich Russillo: I don’t know if these two are in any shape to continue. I don’t even think THEY know if they’re in any shape to continue, but it looks like they’re going to try anyway! Both Hikari Kanno and Ms. Extreme are slowly trying to pull themselves up, and it already looks like things have gone a step further than a cut forehead and a bloody nose, as that barbed wire is already beginning to take effect! Nonetheless both Elitists slowly begin to charge in, AND HIKARI KANNO HITS CAMILLE WITH A FOREARM!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme stumbles back quite a bit, and I think she needed a bit of time to process that forearm! She’s clearly still shaken after that spear into the barbed wire net along with everything else she’s taken in this match, BUT JUST AS HIKARI GOES TO CAPITALIZE MS. EXTREME IS ABLE TO ANSWER BACK! Now it’s Hikari that’s barely able to remain on her feet, AND HIKARI NOW HITS CAMILLE WITH A SECOND FOREARM! NOW MS. EXTREME HITS A SECOND FOREARM! There have been long breaks between these forearms, and I can definitely see why- BUT HIKARI KANNO HAS A DIFFERENT ANSWER NOW AS SHE KICKS CAMILLE’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER, CAUSING THE CHAMPION TO FALL FACE FIRST INTO THE BARBED WIRE NET!

Persephone: Finally things are getting pretty interesting! Hikari Kanno is holding Camille by the back of her head and she’s scraping her face against the barbed wire net! Camille’s skin is being torn apart as we speak, THIS is what I’ve been waiting for :drakelike:!

Rich Russillo: The Universal Women’s Champion isn’t looking so good right now! You can see her blood dripping through the barbed wire net into the ring, and that cut she had wasn’t that bad so that’s really just a testament to how badly the barbed wire has cut her! Hikari Kanno finally lets up, BUT ONLY BEFORE STOMPING HER FOOT ON CAMILLE’S HEAD, AND PRESSING HER HEAD AGAINST THE BARBED WIRE! Hikari Kanno is really showing just how brutal she could really be, and I think Ms. Extreme really underestimated her coming into this match! She called Hikari Kanno mediocre and all sorts of other harsh things leading up to this match, and that could be coming back to bite her right now! Hikari Kanno is in control, and this might just lead to the end of Camille’s Championship reign!

James Peters: Hikari pulls Ms. Extreme up-

James Peters: BUT CAMILLE PULLS HIKARI DOWN ONTO THE BARBED WIRE NET BEFORE QUICKLY LOCKING IN THE RED HANDED!!! THE RED HANDED IS LOCKED IN ON HIKARI KANNO WHILE ON THE BARBED WIRE NET, AND JUST LOOK AT MS. EXTREME’S FACE! IN A MATTER OF MOMENTS JUST A SMALL CUT WAS TURNED INTO A FULL CRIMSON MASK, AND THAT’S THE EFFECT BARBED WIRE REALLY HAS ON PEOPLE! IT’S EXACTLY WHAT CAMILLE HAS HAD TO DEAL WITH FOR THE PAST FEW MOMENTS, AND NOW HIKARI KANNO IS GOING TO HAVE TO FEEL A SIMILAR PAIN AS SHE’S TRAPPED IN THE RED HANDED SUBMISSION!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO HAS NOWHERE TO GO! IT’S NOT LIKE THERE’S ANY ROPES FOR HER TO GRAB ONTO, AND EVEN IF THERE WERE IT WOULDN’T DO ANYTHING WHEN THIS MATCH HAS NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! HIKARI KANNO HAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO SUFFER THROUGH THIS SUBMISSION UNTIL SHE COULD FIND A WAY OUT! IT’S EITHER THAT, OR HIKARI GIVES UP A UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH ALONG WITH HER HAIR, AND I DON’T THINK HIKARI WANTS TO GO THROUGH THAT! HIKARI HAS TO FIND A WAY OUT OF THIS!

Persephone: Ehhhh, I don’t know. Watching these two torture each other is pretty fun, so I actually don’t think Hikari needs to get out of the submission anytime soon.

James Peters: Persephone, Camille might end up tearing Hikari’s arm right out of its socket! I really don’t think these two have any boundaries they won’t cross tonight, not after these past few weeks!

Persephone: And? Hikari losing an arm would just make the match more interesting.

James Peters: 🙄 Whatever you say. Hikari Kanno is reaching out, hoping that there’s something she could grab onto in order to try and free herself, but she’s on her own here!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI JUST GRABBED ONTO THE BARBED WIRE NET, AND SHE’S SLOWLY BEGINNING TO PULL HERSELF TOWARDS THE EDGE OF THE NET! HIKARI KANNO IS HURTING HERSELF IN THE PROCESS AS HER BODY IS BEING DRAGGED ACROSS THE BARBED WIRE, BUT I THINK THIS IS HIKARI’S ATTEMPT AT TRYING TO ESCAPE THE SUBMISSION! SHE’S TRYING TO PULL HERSELF OFF OF THE NET, BUT CAMILLE IS MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT AS SHE DOESN’T LET GO OF HER! This has been an extremely tough match for both competitors, and it looks like it’s not going to end just yet, because Hikari Kanno has reached the edge of the net-

James Peters: AND MS. EXTREME LETS GO OF THE SUBMISSION! MS. EXTREME KNEW THAT HIKARI WANTED TO TRY AND PULL HERSELF AND CAMILLE OFF OF THE NET AND SEND BOTH ELITISTS CRASHING DOWN TO RINGSIDE, SO SHE HELD THE SUBMISSION IN FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE BEFORE LETTING GO! MS. EXTREME PULLS HIKARI KANNO UP TO HER FEET NOW, AND NOW THE CHAMPION QUICKLY PULLS HER INTO A FRONT FACELOCK BEFORE DELIVERING THE TWIST OF FATE!!

Rich Russillo: NO! HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO AVOID IT BY SLIPPING BEHIND CAMILLE AND USES HER GOOD ARM TO PULL THE CHAMPION INTO A SCHOOLBOY! CAMILLE’S SHOULDERS ARE BEING PRESSED DOWN ON THE BARBED WIRE, IS THAT GONNA STOP HER FROM KICKING OUT!!!??

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO! MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO KICK OUT, BUT CLEARLY THAT WAS ALL PART OF HIKARI KANNO’S PLAN AS SHE JUST JUMPED UP AND DELIVERED A SENTON ONTO MS. EXTREME’S BACK IMMEDIATELY AFTER SHE KICKED OUT! Hikari Kanno with an extremely smart way to get back into this, and that’s part of the reason IDOL-GUN has been so successful so early into their careers!

Persephone: Both Hikari and Camille look like horror movie victims right now and I love it. Hikari Kanno pulls Camille back up to her feet, and I think she’s going for that one signature move with the stupid name.

James Peters: :lupe: Hikari Kanno is setting up for the Kanno Super Buster, and this might just be extremely painful on the barbed wire net! HIKARI LIFTS CAMILLE UP, AND THERE IT IS! KANNO SUPER BUSTER, THE GUTWRENCH SITOUT POWERBOMB CONNECTS!!! HIKARI KANNO CONNECTS WITH THE KANNO SUPER BUSTER, AND THAT’S GOTTA BE IT!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO PINS MS. EXTREME!!! WE HAVE A NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!!

Persephone: AND CAMILLE’S GONNA GO BALD :mjlol2:!!!

OOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTTHHHHRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

James Peters: WE DON’T HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!!! THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER YET!!! MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO KICK OUT JUST BEFORE THE REFEREE ON THE SCAFFOLD COULD REACH THE COUNT OF THREE!! HIKARI KANNO CAN’T BELIEVE THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER YET, BUT EVERY SINGLE FAN IN THE ARENA JUST GOT OFF THEIR SEATS AND BEGAN CHEERING AFTER THAT KICKOUT! MS. EXTREME IS STILL THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION FOR THE TIME BEING, AND HER HAIR IS STILL SAFE FOR NOW!

Rich Russillo: I can’t even imagine what Hikari Kanno is thinking right now. Well.. Probably tons and tons of swears. Hikari is probably screaming internally, because I know she thought she had this match won there, and I’m saying that because I thought it was over too! Hikari Kanno is slowly getting back up, and much like Camille the effects of the barbed wire is running across her body, but she clearly has something in mind! Hikari’s slowly pulling the Universal Women’s Champion back up to her feet, WAIT WAIT WAIT! OH MY GOD!

Persephone: :blessed:

James Peters: HIKARI KANNO JUST TOSSED MS. EXTREME OFF OF THE BARBED WIRE NET AND DOWN TO RINGSIDE!!

Rich Russillo: THERE WAS NOTHING TO BREAK HER FALL!! THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION WAS JUST THROWN DOWN TO THE GROUND AT RINGSIDE! Hikari Kanno grabs onto the ladder for the scaffold before climbing down to the ground, and I don’t know how Ms. Extreme is supposed to continue! I suppose she should be grateful that she didn’t fall from the scaffold, but that fall had to be painful! That might’ve just taken her out of this match!

Persephone: Well it’s not like pinfalls can happen down there! They’re probably just gonna kill each other even more since there’s actual weapons down there, and I’m here for it :blessed:!

James Peters: Hikari Kanno just pulled out a small bag, and without wasting any time she pours a bunch of thumbtacks out at ringside! I’m not surprised that there’s thumbtacks around knowing that the crew had to prepare for the Persephone’s Choice match earlier tonight, but right now that doesn’t mean good things for Ms. Extreme! Camille is slowly beginning to stir, but that really doesn’t mean much because she’s in too much pain to really do anything! She’s trying to crawl towards the apron so she could help herself to her feet-

Rich Russillo: BUT HIKARI KANNO GRABS MS. EXTREME BEFORE SENDING HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! The steps have been used multiple times by Hikari throughout this feud, and right now she might’ve just killed Camille’s chances of getting back into this match! The crowd is viciously booing Hikari Kanno, and I think it’s pretty obvious by now that the few cheers being directed towards her are by however many of IDOL-GUN’s simps are in attendance! Hikari Kanno is extremely talented, but stuff like this won’t exactly make her the most popular person, among the EAW universe at least.

Persephone: I don’t know, she’s actually making this match kinda fun after that boring start. If she was actually good at anything then I think I’d actually like her.

James Peters: Hikari Kanno drags Ms. Extreme over towards the pile of thumbtacks left from the Persephone’s Choice match, AND NOW HIKARI GOES FOR THE BRIGHTSTAR ON TOP OF THE THUMBTACKS!!

Rich Russillo: NO! MS. EXTREME BEGINS DESPERATELY ELBOWING AT THE SIDE OF HIKARI’S HEAD, AND HIKARI KANNO LETS GO OF CAMILLE! HIKARI IS HOLDING HER JAW, I THINK MS. EXTREME CAUGHT HER THERE WITH THE ELBOW!

James Peters: WAIT, LOOK!!! MS. EXTREME JUST KICKED HIKARI KANNO IN THE STOMACH, AND SHE DELIVERS THE TWIST OF FATE ONTO THE THUMBTACKS!!! Ms. Extreme is slowly gaining life, and I think she’s starting to see red as she looks at Hikari Kanno and thinks about all the damage that’s been done in the past few moments!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno is trying as hard as she can to pull herself up- BUT MS. EXTREME GRABS BOTH OF HIKARI’S ARMS, BEFORE REPEATEDLY STOMPING ON THE BACK OF HIKARI’S HEAD, SENDING HER INTO THE THUMBTACKS!! MS. EXTREME IS STOMPING HIKARI KANNO’S HEAD INTO THE THUMBTACKS REPEATEDLY, AND I THOUGHT HIKARI SCRAPING CAMILLE’S FACE ACROSS THE BARBED WIRE WAS BAD BUT THIS MIGHT’VE JUST ONE UPPED THAT!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme just let go of Hikari, and just look at her face! It’s covered in thumbtacks, and there’s a bunch of bleeding holes in her skin thanks to some of the thumbtacks not sticking to her! Hikari Kanno is pretty much out, but I don’t think Ms. Extreme is even close to being done after everything that was done to her in the past few moments! Hikari Kanno might’ve made a huge mistake!

Persephone: 🤷‍♀️ Ms. Extreme is making this match even more violent because of Hikari. I don’t see how that’s a mistake.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is digging under the ring, and I’m not too sure what she could be looking for! This isn’t known to be a match that needs weapons, but it wouldn’t be the first time we saw them used in a scaffold match, as the same thing happened early on last year! Ms. Extreme continues digging, AND SHE PULLS OUT… A glass shard?

James Peters: Someone must’ve gotten lazy and just swept the glass from that broken mirror during the Fans Bring the Weapons match under the ring. Nonetheless it looks like Ms. Extreme is satisfied with it, probably because it’s the closest she could get to having a knife! Ms. Extreme turns towards Hikari Kanno who’s trying as hard as she can to get back up, and I don’t like the look on Camille’s face as she approaches her! :lupe:

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME JUST STABBED HIKARI KANNO IN THE LEG WITH THE GLASS SHARD!!! HIKARI KANNO IMMEDIATELY DROPS BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND AND STARTS HOLDING HER LEG IN PAIN, AND I THINK HIKARI IS GETTING A TASTE OF KARMA! THE CHAMPIONSHIP VERSUS HAIR STIPULATION IDEA ALL STARTED WHEN HIKARI TOOK OUT A PAIR OF SCISSORS AND STABBED CAMILLE IN THE LEG WITH IT! That led to her cutting off a piece of Camille’s hair, but if stuff like this continues Hikari might be losing an entire head of hair!

James Peters: MS. EXTREME TOSSES HIKARI INTO THE STEPS! She doesn’t slam Hikari into them and leans Hikari on the edge of the step, and I think I know exactly why! Ms. Extreme just pulled a barbed wire wrapped steel chair out of the ring, AND SHE SLAMS IT ONTO THE BACK OF HIKARI KANNO’S HEAD!! MS. EXTREME REPEATEDLY SLAMS THE BARBED WIRE WRAPPED STEEL CHAIR ONTO THE BACK OF HIKARI’S HEAD, AND AT THIS POINT CAMILLE HASN’T JUST MADE IT BACK INTO THIS MATCH! SHE’S COMPLETELY TAKEN IT OVER!

Rich Russillo: Some fans may feel like this is what Hikari Kanno deserves after everything she’s done to Camille in the past month. I don’t know if I can agree with all of that, but Ms. Extreme definitely does have a ton of anger she’s taking out right now!

Persephone: I think everyone else in EAW should learn from this match. PLEASE don’t try wrestling unless there’s gonna be a bunch of weapons and death and blood, because it’s not gonna be good. I’m just glad they didn’t spend this entire match on that scaffold.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme grabs Hikari Kanno, AND SHE SENDS HER INTO THE BARRICADE!!!

Rich Russillo: NO! HIKARI KANNO MANAGED TO STOP HERSELF BY GRABBING ONTO THE BARRICADE, AND SHE JUST GRABBED SOMEONE’S DRINK AND THREW IT AT CAMILLE AS SOON AS SHE CHARGED IN! HIKARI LOOKS AT THE CROWD, AND- WAIT A SECOND!! ONE OF THE FANS WEARING IDOL-GUN MERCH JUST HANDED HIKARI THEIR CHAIR!! HIKARI KANNO TAKES THE CHAIR AND QUICKLY SLAMS IT ACROSS CAMILLE’S HEAD!

James Peters: One of IDOL-GUN’s simps just handed Hikari their chair and that just allowed her to get back into this match! The rest of the crowd is booing and a lot of the nearby fans don’t look too happy with the simp, but it got the job done! Hikari has blood coming from the back of her head… Her face.. These two are a mess right now. I shouldn’t be surprised knowing just how much hatred they have for each other and how much they both want the Universal Women’s Championship, but this has been insane. They’ve torn each other apart!

Rich Russillo: Hikari drops the chair before slowly stumbling over to the ring apron, and now she’s looking under the ring for another weapon! WAIT, HIKARI HAS A GRIN ON HER FACE, SHE JUST PULLED OUT A SHATTERED GLASS COVERED BASEBALL BAT! THAT’D USUALLY BE MS. EXTREME’S WEAPON OF CHOICE, AND IT MIGHT’VE BEEN UNDER THE RING IN THE EVENT THAT THESE TWO MADE IT DOWN TO RINGSIDE LIKE THEY HAVE NOW, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THE WRONG PERSON GOT TO IT!

Persephone: I honestly don’t care who has it as long as they keep bashing their heads in like that. This match took a turn, but I’m glad that these scaffold matches never really stick to just the scaffold and barbed wire net, because if they’re not gonna fall to their deaths this is WAY more interesting.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is still getting up from the shot with the steel chair, AND THAT ALLOWS HIKARI KANNO TO HIT THE CHAMPION IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH THE GLASS COVERED BASEBALL BAT!

Rich Russillo: Camille is down, and immediately blood begins pouring out from the side of her head. I didn’t think it could get much worse after all the blood that’s
already coming from her face and her body, but it definitely has! I feel bad for whoever ends up losing this match. Shaving over all the cuts and wounds probably won’t feel great :lupe:.

James Peters: Hikari Kanno walks over to the Champion, BEFORE SLAMMING THE BROKEN GLASS COVERED BAT INTO HER STOMACH! Ms. Extreme is holding her stomach in pain as she’s back to her knees- AND WAIT A SECOND! WHAT IS HIKARI KANNO DOING!?

Persephone: :oh: She just wrapped the glass-covered bat around Camille’s throat from behind, and now she’s choking her with it! Hopefully the glass slices Camille’s throat open! 🙏🙏🙏🙏

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is in a lot of trouble! She’s struggling as she’s being choked out, and there’s also the possibility of the glass slicing her throat just like Persephone said! Ms. Extreme might actually be done for! Hikari can’t win the match from ringside, but she can definitely make winning that much easier!

James Peters: MS. EXTREME DOESN’T GO OUT THAT EASILY THOUGH, AS SHE BACKPEDALS AND CAUSES HIKARI KANNO TO CRASH BACK FIRST INTO THE RING POST! MS. EXTREME IS ABLE TO GRAB THE GLASS-COVERED BASEBALL BAT, AND SHE IMMEDIATELY SLAMS THE END OF IT INTO HIKARI’S FACE! MS. EXTREME HAS THE BAT! MS. EXTREME HAS THE GLASS-COVERED BAT, AND NOW SHE SWINGS THE BAT AS HARD AS SHE CAN AT HIKARI’S HEAD!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI DUCKS UNDER IT THOUGH, AND SHE GRABS THE BARBED WIRE WRAPPED STEEL CHAIR BEFORE SLAMMING IT INTO CAMILLE’S MIDSECTION! Hikari is backing up towards the ladder, and after everything these two have done to each other, I think she’s getting ready to end this!

James Peters: This is actually really smart from Hikari! The match can only end on the scaffold or on the barbed wire net, and now if Ms. Extreme wants to get back to the top she’s gonna have to meet Hikari up there!

Rich Russillo: I DON’T THINK SHE’S MEETING HIKARI UP THERE, INSTEAD SHE’S CHASING AFTER HER! MS. EXTREME BEGINS CLIMBING UP THE SAME LADDER AS HIKARI KANNO, AND SHE HITS HIKARI IN THE BACK WITH THE GLASS COVERED BASEBALL BAT!!

Persephone: 🙏 Please fall please fall please fall please fall.

James Peters: Hikari Kanno is just barely managing to hold on, AND SHE KICKS MS. EXTREME IN THE FACE, CAUSING CAMILLE TO DROP DOWN A RUNG! Hikari still has the barbed wire wrapped chair in her hand, but there’s not much she could do with it right now as Camille is under her! Hikari continues climbing up to the top of the scaffold, but Ms. Extreme doesn’t look like she’s done just yet! She keeps climbing up too!

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME HITS HIKARI KANNO IN THE LEG WITH THE GLASS COVERED BAT! Hikari already has a glass shard in her leg, this is just too much! Ms. Extreme continues climbing up, AND HIKARI KICKS AT CAMILLE’S SHOULDER, TRYING TO KNOCK HER OFF OF THE LADDER! THESE TWO ARE NEARLY AT THE TOP OF THE SCAFFOLD! A FALL FROM THIS HIGH WOULD BE LETHAL!

Persephone: Which is why I reeeeeaally hope one of them actually falls!

James Peters: I don’t think that’s happening though, because Hikari Kanno finally manages to pull herself over the railing and get on the scaffold- AND MS. EXTREME ISN’T FAR BEHIND! CAMILLE GETS OVER THE SCAFFOLD AND SHE IMMEDIATELY SWINGS THE GLASS COVERED BAT AT HIKARI!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI MANAGES TO BLOCK IT WITH THE BARBED WIRE WRAPPED CHAIR THOUGH! HIKARI PUSHES CAMILLE BACK, AND NOW SHE QUICKLY GETS BACK UP! Hikari’s leg is seemingly still hurt thanks to the glass shard stuck in it, BUT THAT MIGHT NOT MATTER AS HIKARI MANAGES TO HIT CAMILLE IN THE HEAD WITH THE BARBED WIRE CHAIR! Hikari Kanno now turning her attention towards her leg, AS SHE RELUCTANTLY PULLS THE GLASS SHARD OUT OF IT! That had to hurt, Ms. Extreme didn’t hold back when she stabbed her!

James Peters: YEAH, AND NOW HIKARI KANNO LOOKS TO RETURN THE FAVOR AS SHE TRIES TO STAB CAMILLE! MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO CATCH HIKARI’S ARM, BUT THE GLASS WAS STILL ABLE TO CUT THE TOP OF HER SHOULDER! Hikari Kanno knees Camille in the midsection, AND NOW HIKARI MANAGES TO STAB CAMILLE IN THE SHOULDER WITH THE GLASS SHARD! Ms. Extreme is screaming in pain after being stabbed in the shoulder, and I guess this is what we should’ve expected heading into this match! These two have made it clear just how much they wanted to destroy each other, and this match might be ending very soon!

Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO GRABS THE HURT MS. EXTREME, AND YOU JUST SAID IT BEST JAMES! THIS MATCH MIGHT BE ENDING VERY SOON- BECAUSE HIKARI KANNO JUST DELIVERED THE ALLELUIA NORTHERN LIGHTS BOMB ONTO THE RAILING! HIKARI KANNO JUST SLAMMED THE BLOODY MS. EXTREME HEAD FIRST ONTO THE RAILING!!! HIKARI IS ABLE TO GO FOR THE COVER, AND THERE’S NO WAY THAT’S NOT IT! WE HAVE A NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, AND HER NAME IS HIKARI KANNO!!!

OOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

….

Persephone: :comeagain: Did she just get her shoulder up??

James Peters: SHE DID!!!?!?…. HOW???? Ms. Extreme barely managed to pull her shoulder maybe an inch off the ground just before the referee could hit three! The referee is telling Hikari Kanno that the match isn’t over, and I genuinely don’t think she understands how this happened! I can’t blame her, because I honestly don’t understand it either! This match probably should’ve been over, but Ms. Extreme wants to keep that Championship so badly that she was able to just barely get the shoulder up and stop herself from losing the match! The crowd exploded after seeing Camille kick out, and it’s obvious who they want to win here!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno slowly pulls herself back to her feet, and she just shakes her head! I think she still can’t believe that the match hasn’t ended there, but she just picked up the glass covered bat, and it looks like she’s going to take that out on Camille, AS SHE SLAMS THE BAT DOWN AGAINST HER THROAT AND ONCE AGAIN STARTS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF THE CHAMPION! MS. EXTREME BARELY HAS ANY LIFE LEFT IN HER AS IS, THIS MIGHT BE ENOUGH TO FINALLY END THE MATCH! Hikari has choked Camille repeatedly throughout this match and targeted her throat with some of her offense, and because of that we might see a new Champion crowned!

Persephone: :wow: You see how much better this match got once they decided to start covering each other in blood? I think we need to just give every Voltage match some type of deathmatch stipulation. It’d be way better than watching them actually try to wrestle.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is on the verge of passing out! The crowd is booing heavily now, but it might not matter! Hikari Kanno might just become the new Universal Women’s Champion-

Rich Russillo: WAIT! MS. EXTREME JUST PULLED THE GLASS SHARD OUT OF HER SHOULDER AND SWUNG IT AT HIKARI!

James Peters: BUT HIKARI KANNO SAW IT COMING AND BACKED OUT OF THE WAY, RIGHT BEFORE KICKING CAMILLE IN THE FACE! Hikari Kanno has a smirk on her face as she knew that the glass shard was really the only way Camille could’ve gotten out of that chokehold! That smirk is quickly wiped away though, because Hikari Kanno knows this match isn’t over and she still has to find a way to put the Champion down for the three count!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno just kicked the barbed wire steel chair towards the middle of the scaffold, and it looks like Hikari’s ready to finish this match! Hikari is pulling Ms. Extreme back to her feet over the barbed wire steel chair, AND I THINK HIKARI IS SETTING UP FOR THE KANNO SUPER BUSTER-

James Peters: BUT CAMILLE PULLS HIKARI’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER, AND NOW SHE IMMEDIATELY GRABS HER AND DEADLIFTS HER UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS!!! RED QUEEN’S RAMPAGE ONTO THE CHAIR!!! THE RED QUEEN’S RAMPAGE CONNECTS ONTO THE BARBED WIRE-WRAPPED STEEL CHAIR, AND BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN!

Rich Russillo: NO! MS. EXTREME GRABS ONTO THE RAILING AND FORCES HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND JUST LOOK AT THE RAGE IN HER EYES! MS. EXTREME GRABS HIKARI KANNO, AND SHE JUST THREW HER OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD!!! MS. EXTREME JUST TOSSED HIKARI KANNO OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD, AND HIKARI LANDS BACK FIRST ONTO THE BARBED WIRE NET! Ms. Extreme had to take a lot of damage and some serious injuries thanks to Hikari, and it looks like she’s had enough of it! She just tossed Hikari off of the scaffold and onto the net, but what was she thinking? Now the only way for her to finish the match is to join Hikari on the net!

Persephone: Doesn’t sound like a bad thing to me 🤷‍♀️.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme walks over to the edge of the scaffold, and she just looks down at the lifeless Hikari Kanno! Hikari probably had all the wind knocked out of her with the Red Queen’s Rampage, and that just made things so much worse! Ms. Extreme doesn’t look satisfied with what she’s done though! :lupe:

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is looking around at the arena full of cheering fans before turning her attention back on Hikari..

Rich Russillo: AND MS. EXTREME JUMPS OFF OF THE SCAFFOLD!!!!

James Peters: A BLIND FURY!!!!! MS. EXTREME JUST DOVE OFF THE SCAFFOLD AND HIT HIKARI KANNO WITH THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!! HIKARI KANNO HAD NOWHERE TO GO AFTER LANDING ON THE BARBED WIRE NET, AND THAT JUST ALLOWED MS. EXTREME TO JUMP OFF THAT INCREDIBLY HIGH SCAFFOLD AND DELIVER A BLIND FURY!!!

Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME IMMEDIATELY DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER, AND THIS HAS TO BE IT, I DON’T THINK EITHER OF THESE WOMEN HAVE ANYTHING LEFT IN THEM! THERE’S NO WAY THIS MATCH CONTINUES!!! THAT CHAMPIONSHIP IS STILL CAMILLE’S!!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

……

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. AND STILLLLLL THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… MIISSSSSSS EEEEXXTTTREEEEEEMMMEEE!!!!!!

(“Throne” by Saint Mesa hits, and the crowd cheers following the victory. Both Hikari Kanno and Ms. Extreme are down, and a few officials begin to make their way to ringside to help them down from the net and begin to lower it. As Ms. Extreme begins to stir and is handed her Championship, the first thing she does is raise it up in the air, causing the fans to cheer even louder.)

James Peters: What a match. I don’t even know what to say after that! These two put each other through hell, and I can’t even get over that ending!

Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno put up one hell of a fight, one that Camille probably will be feeling the effects of for a while, but in the end this was Ms. Extreme’s night, and this title reign is not over yet!

(As Ms. Extreme looks around, the barber’s chair that was set up for this match catches her attention.)

James Peters: :lupe: Unfortunately for Hikari, her night isn’t over yet.

Persephone: :gladbron: Look at that sick look on Ms. Extreme’s face! It makes me so happy because I know she’s about to snatch Hikari up and fucking scalp her!

Rich Russillo: :whoa: She’s just supposed to shave her head…

Persephone: SCALP HER, CAMILLE!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme has gotten to her feet and she’s pointing at that barber’s chair! The crowd is going absolutely nuts and guys, check out the look on Hikari Kanno’s face. She didn’t expect to find herself in this position at all.

( The camera zooms in on Hikari, who truly does look stunned at the turn of events. She is battered, bruised, and bloodied, but the look of absolute shock on her lovely face can’t be hidden. She came into this world championship match sure of victory and ready to take her place as the one true Queen of Elite Answers Wrestling, but instead, she found herself on the losing end of a match that has dire repercussions. Unable to help herself, Ms. Extreme throws her head back and laughs. )

Ms. Extreme: ( off-mic ) Sucks to suck, doesn’t it?

( Ms. Extreme uses the toe of her boot to shove Hikari’s face to the side before she reaches down and snatches Hikari up by the hair. She begins to drag her toward the barber’s chair. )

Persephone: God, this is going to be fucking glorious. Nothing better than watching an unlikeable cunt lose her dignity right in front of our very eyes.

( Ms. Extreme throws Hikari towards the chair, and the former Unified Tag Team Champion can’t help but wonder how things got so far out of hand. She looks around at the crowd, every single one of them cheering her downfall and waiting to see their beloved champion, Ms. Extreme, take the razor to her head. Hikari’s shock washes away and turns into anger mixed with absolute disgust. )

Hikari Kanno: ( off-mic and shouting ) Of course you cheer for this. Of course you get excited for something like this.

James Peters: I don’t blame Hikari Kanno for being upset right now at all. This has got to be an uncomfortable situation for her.

Persephone: Man, she wanted this match. She signed up for this shit. Hikari Kanno brought this on herself, and now we get to watch the final stage of her fall from grace. From day one, this bitch has acted like she owned the place. IDOL-GUN has run rampant over everyone and made the lives of people in EAW a living Hell. Now before you think I care about that, I don’t. I don’t give a fuck if these people are miserable. I’m fucking living in a world without Rex McAllister so as far as I’m concerned, the rest of the world can just fucking burn. BUT… karma is a bitch. And now Hikari is going to experience the biggest slap I have literally ever seen karma give to someone and I’m here for it.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme has grabbed Hikari and she’s forced into the chair! Hikari kicks the Universal Women’s Champion away from her and that absolutely enrages Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme lunges for Hikari BUT MIKU SAKAI FROM BEHIND! SHE NAILS MS. EXTREME IN THE BACK AND THROWS HERSELF INTO THE ARMS OF HER TAG TEAM PARTNER!

Miku Sakai: ( off-mic) LEAVE HER THE FUCK ALONE! JUST FUCKING LEAVE HIKARI ALONE!!!!

( Miku is obviously distraught over this turn of events and has her arms wrapped tightly around her partner. The two best friends are consoling one another, with Miku tenderly wiping the blood from Hikari’s face. She smooths Hikari’s hair back off her face and tucks it behind her partner’s ears. )

Miku Sakai: ( off-mic ) You don’t have to go through with this. They can’t make you go through with this. IDOL-GUN doesn’t need EAW. EAW needs us, and I will not fucking let them do this to you. Fuck them. Fuck them. Fuck them.

( Security has come running out, and one security guard grabs Miku and rips her from Hikari’s arms, disrupting the emotional moment between the two best friends. This immediately sends Miku kicking and screaming and thrashing against the security card. Another security guard has grabbed Ms. Extreme, who wants to go after Miku for taking the cheap shot, and the scene around ringside has completely broken down. )

( For Hikari, she feels a bit dazed. As chaos erupts around her, she sinks down to her knees. She looks at her tag team partner, her number one, and her best friend in the world. Miku is fighting against the security guards who are dragging her towards the back. Miku’s hand is extended out, almost as if she is reaching for Hikari. It’s instinctual for Hikari to raise her own hand, but she can’t force herself up. She can’t go after her partner who’s in shambles and wants nothing more than to protect her. )

( Ms. Extreme is being held back as well, but as soon as Miku is out of sight, she is freed. She shoves the guard away who had been holding her and makes her way over to Hikari. She goes to grab her, but this time Hikari isn’t having it. She pushes Ms. Extreme away from her and that doesn’t settle well with the champion. Hikari slowly rises to her feet and turns her back on Ms. Extreme, looking at that barber’s chair. As horrible as this situation is… as unexpected as this situation is… this is what Hikari signed herself up for. Her shoulders sag just a bit. Her head dips just a bit. But she forces herself towards the chair and takes a seat. )

( An amused expression crosses Ms. Extreme’s face as her temper calms down. Hikari has submitted to the situation and accepted her fate. She walks over to where Hikari is sitting and much to her surprise, it is Hikari who plucks the clippers off the metal tray sitting beside the chair and presents them to Ms. Extreme. Ms. Extreme narrows her eyes at Hikari, who schooled her own expression into one of complete neutrality, and purses her lips. )

Ms. Extreme: ( off-mic ) You brought this on yourself.

Hikari Kanno: ( off-mic ) Do what you have to do and never forget that Hikari Kanno made your championship reign.

( Ms. Extreme doesn’t waste any more time. She wraps her hands in Hikari’s blood soaked hair, snatches her head back, and places the clippers right in the middle of Hikari’s forehead. As the first clump of hair falls from Hikari’s head, the IDOL-GUN member doesn’t even blink. The second clump of hair falls and it’s much the same, and the crowd continues to cheer as the Universal Women’s Champion shaves her challenger’s head. It’s only when Ms. Extreme begins to lather up Hikari’s head, does her eyes water a bit, but she remains stoic as the champ takes the razor to her and finishes the job. Ms. Extreme towels off Hikari’s head and gives it a little rub, giggling to herself in the process. )

Ms. Extreme: ( off-mic ) Almost as shiny as my championship. Fuck you, Hikari.

( “Throne” by Saint Mesa begins to play, and the referee hands Ms. Extreme her Universal Women’s Championship. She holds it up right in front of Hikari, who looks past Ms. Extreme and focuses on the ring post. An arrogant smirk crosses the face of the face, who finally turns around and begins to make her way up the ramp. )

( The camera focuses on Hikari, who briefly closes her eyes and lets her feelings wash over her. She doesn’t give anyone watching the privilege of seeing her grieve the loss, and once she composes herself, she gets to her feet and makes her way away from the ringside area through a side exit. )

( The whole time, Ms. Extreme has watched her go, pleased with herself and the damage she did tonight not just physically to Hikari, but mentally and emotionally as well. As Ms. Extreme turns to walk to the back, she bumps into what seems to be a brick wall. )

Rich Russillo: THAT IS DYNASTY’S XIMENA VELASQUEZ!

James Peters: Earlier tonight, we saw Ximena and Sierra arrive at the arena, and we all KNEW that Ximena would be watching this match closely. It was never going to matter to ‘La Diosa’ who won this match because at Operation: Doomsday, we learned that she would be the next challenger.

Persephone: That’s one big bitch. She’s built like a fucking truck and has a skidmark-looking face to boot.

( Ms. Extreme doesn’t seem impressed or intimidated by Ximena at all. The two future opponents stare at one another, with Ms. Extreme looking up. Ximena cracks an evil smile and points at the belt, which Ms. Extreme has no problem raising in the air. After a moment, she pushes past the Dynasty Elitist, leaving Ximena staring after her while Sunday Night Voltage from there begins to transition back to the present. )

(As Voltage returns to ringside, ‘As Long As I Love’ TK from Ling Tosite Sigure begins playing. The Voltage crowd responds with a ton of boos, with the only cheers heard in the arena coming from the dedicated fanbase of Hikari Kanno, who begins to make her way out to the stage. Hikari Kanno doesn’t look pleased at all following the events of Showdown, and after a few seconds she begins to walk down the ramp, heading towards the ring.)

James Peters: Just one night ago on Showdown we saw Hikari Kanno confront Harper Lee, only things didn’t end the exact same way they did last week, when Hikari Kanno was able to get the upper hand against Harper in a brawl after her simps through her in a dumpster earlier in the night.

Rich Russillo: Yeah, on Showdown it was actually Harper that stood tall after another fight broke out! Things have really heated up between these two, which is making me really interested in their Pain for Pride match!

Persephone: You’re interested in everything. Neither of them are even good, you’re just too easily entertained by garbage.

Hikari Kanno: It’s really is sad. After what happened over on Showdown, Harper Lee’s head has probably doubled in size. She already was far too confident for her own good seeing who’s standing in her way, but because she got the better of me last night, someone as lowly as Harper Lee now has the opportunity to parade around pretending she actually has a chance of stopping me from winning the Iconic Cup tournament, and that annoys me. Someone like Harper Lee shouldn’t even be able to walk into a match like this with the mindset that they have what it takes to leave Pain for Pride with the victory, especially after watching what I have done in this tournament. Match after match has ended in dominant victory after dominant victory for yours truly, and that’s not going to change just because Harper is a bit more delusional than some of my former opponents. I am going to go down as one of the greatest to ever do it and there’s not a single fucking thing that Harper can do about it. As soon as my name was announced for this tournament the winner was already set in stone, and that winner wasn’t even a member of the A block.

(A grin grows on Hikari Kanno’s face as she continues.)

Hikari Kanno: I always knew that I’d reach this point and that’s not something I have been shy about. There is nothing and nobody that can stop me from going down as one of the greatest women to ever do it. This Iconic Cup tournament has just been a reminder of the kind of talent I possess, and for the most part I haven’t even been with a real challenge. I am a future Universal Women’s Champion, and my time is coming very, very soon. Harper Lee has yet to realize it yet, but she was never going to win a tournament that I’m part of, not in the form that I’ve been in. She’s not good enough and it’s a disservice to a talent like myself even entertaining the idea that she is. No matter how many times she tries to convince herself otherwise, Harper Lee is going to be walking into Pain for Pride all for a match she has no choice but to lose. She’s going to have come all this way just for victory to not even be an option for her. I can’t say I feel sorry for her either, because a victory like this is one that should have been mine a very long time ago. I have grown throughout my year in EAW to the point where I know that I’m good enough to stand on my own two feet and find the success that I failed to when this season first started. At Pain for Pride Harper is going to see me at my very best, and she won’t have any other choice but to call me 2022’s Iconic Cup winner.

(The crowd boos, and ‘Sweet Dreams’ by Eurythmics, Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart hits just as Hikari Kanno finishes speaking, and of course this annoys Hikari. The boos only continue as Harper Lee begins to make her way out, and she looks pretty happy with herself following what she did on Showdown, where she laid out Hikari Kanno. Harper Lee already has a microphone in her hand, so she begins to make her way down to the ring.)

James Peters: Well here comes Harper Lee, who has a grin on her face despite what Hikari Kanno has said. I think we all know exactly why that’s the case too. After all, we saw how things ended back on Showdown, and if there’s anybody who wouldn’t hesitate to brag about something like that, it’s Harper Lee.

Rich Russillo: Both Hikari and Harper have become well known for having a very strong sense of confidence no matter who they’re up against, to the point where many see it as arrogance, so it’s not surprising that both of these women are so convinced that they’ll be leaving Pain for Pride as the Iconic Cup winner already! The only question is who’ll actually live up to their words!

Persephone: I don’t really care. Can we start asking more interesting questions? Like.. When is Rex McAllister returning to EAW?

(Harper Lee makes her way up the steel steps, standing on the ring apron before beginning to speak.)

Harper Lee: Wow Hikari, I have to admit, I’m impressed. You’re REALLY good at pretending I didn’t literally just stomp your head in last night! I know you think that doesn’t matter at all, but what I did on Showdown is exactly what’s gonna happen at Pain for Pride, because at Pain for Pride you won’t have a bunch of simps coming out of nowhere to surround me and throw me in a dumpster. At Pain for Pride you won’t have anyone there to help you out against the biggest threat you’ve faced in this entire tournament. All you’ll have to rely on is your own wrestling ability and Hikari I think history has kinda shown that you’ve never been the type to get the job done when it matters. I know you wanna try and convince everyone otherwise but facts are facts, and fact is I’ve actually proven that at the top of my game I am one of the best there is, and if THIS is the top of yours… Well you might wanna apologize to Miku Sakai.

(Harper Lee finally enters the ring, walking up to Hikari Kanno.)

Harper Lee: You don’t get it yet, do you? You’re not winning the Iconic Cup. You never were, and the only reason you ever believed otherwise is because everyone that faced you sucked. It’s easy to make a bunch of promises when you’re not even being challenged. See Hikari you’re not the only one that’s been scratching and clawing their way to the top, only for the past year I actually climbed my way up the ranks while you’ve lost, gotten injured, came back, and lost again. If ANYONE here is all talk it’s not me, it’s the idiot in front of me with one good leg. Can you really say that I was wrong in comparing you to the other moron you betrayed when you’re even being taken out for the exact same injury? You’re both consistent losers, you’re both overrated as hell and neither of you can go without breaking your leg! I’m not like you Hikari, I don’t NEED to spend week after week after week after week telling people how good I am
because whether they like it or not I prove it anyway. I tell people how good I am because I want to. You tell people how good you supposedly are because the only thing there is to take away from your matches is the fact that you can’t hang with the best of them.

(Harper finishes speaking, and Hikari Kanno just remains silent for a few seconds.)

Hikari Kanno: Is that what you take away from my
matches?

(Harper looks a bit confused by the question as Hikari just waits for an answer.)

Harper Lee: Yeah, pretty much.

Hikari Kanno: Then you’re in worse trouble than I thought you were. I always knew that you weren’t going to be winning the Iconic Cup as long as I was involved, but to openly admit that you’re this much of a fucking dumbass is almost depressing. You’d think that after losing the Unified Tag Team Championships to IDOL-GUN while we were still just “rookies” you’d actually begin to take notice of the people around you, but instead you’ve become content with living in your own little world. I’m glad that you’ve been Showdown’s problem and not mine all season because I really don’t know how long I can listen to your bullshit. The Iconic Cup is above you, Harper. It always has been, and no matter how far greater of a competitor you believe you are now compared to a year ago, you’re still in over your head and that was the exact same fucking problem you had the last time I was in the ring with you. It’s sad that you still have no idea what I am capable of or how much of a threat I am to any woman in this division, but that’s fine. I’ll just leave you with another Pain for Pride loss. Wouldn’t be the first time you lucked out and got a taste of the World Championship picture just to fall flat on your face.

(This clearly offends Harper a bit, as she immediately goes to respond as soon as Hikari finishes speaking.)

Harper Lee: Woah woah woah woah woah, are you really doing this? Hikari, I don’t know if you’ve forgotten, but I was just the Specialists Champion. I was the Specialists Champion for a while actually, and I think I had a pretty great reign with that title! A reign so great coming out here and pretending that I don’t have what it takes to accomplish ANYTHING in this company is completely ridiculous. I’m the one that’s actually accomplished things on her own. I’m the one that’s actually solidified herself as a main event player. I am ready for this Hikari. I am ready to become a World Champion and I’m not gonna wait around and let you of all people pass me by after being underwhelming as hell for an entire season when chances are you’re just gonna go out with another injury before you even get the chance to do anything with your Iconic Cup win. This tournament is mine to win Hikari. I’m the only one across this entire tournament that has what it takes to hold a World Championship, and I’m not gonna let you take this opportunity from me.

(As the two Elitists are face to face, the two are silent for a few seconds, until Hikari breaks the silence with a few more words.)

Hikari Kanno: I’ll see you at Pain for Pride, Harper. I’m going to take great pleasure in taking this victory.

(Hikari Kanno stops speaking, and from there the crowd only grows louder as the two Elitists engage in a staredown.)

James Peters: These two Elitists have both proven to be extremely talented, but at Pain for Pride we all know only one of them can win. At this point I have no idea which one it’ll be, but both women seem to be as confident as ever!

Rich Russillo: Pain for Pride is looking incredible this year, and so are the Iconic Cup finals. This is about to be a great match, and I can’t wait to see what happens.

Persephone: I can.

(Hikari Kanno and Harper Lee staring each other down is the last thing shown on the camera, as Voltage begins to fade away from ringside.)

[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER THIS WEEK ]

( The scene opens up inside of Starbucks, because where else would Candice Blair and Molly Waters sit down for an exclusive interview ahead of Pain for Pride? Candice and Molly have been making small talk, with the normally bubbly blonde Elitist obviously a little sad and subdued over the turn of events with her former friend, Danny Tanner. )

Molly Waters: You don’t look happy right now, Candice. Do you want to share what’s on your mind?

( There was no sense in beating around the bush and Candice just sighs. She takes a sip of her skinny vanilla latte and sits back in her seat. )

Candice Blair: I just don’t know how things got so far out of hand. I never had anything other than Danny’s best interests in mind and I truly cared about him. We had so much fun together. I really enjoyed going shopping with him, tag teaming with him, FaceTiming with him, and doing TikTok videos with him. Do you know how many people message me on the reg and tell me how much they miss the content I used to post with Danny? We were good together. He was my best friend.

( An untouched unicorn cake pop sits on a small plate that has been pushed to the side. When a unicorn cake pop can’t even brighten Candice’s mood, you know she’s going through it. )

Candice Blair: I think the most unsettling part about this whole situation is all the red flags that I missed. Several people, including Desmond, tried to warn me that Danny was a stage five clinger, but I just thought he wanted to be included. I certainly didn’t notice that he was catching feelings for me. I’m not the type of person who would ever lead anyone on or make them feel devalued. It just sucks, Molly, and I’m sad. I’m sad and I’m angry, and I just want to know why? Why didn’t Danny just be honest with me about his feelings? Why didn’t he open up to me? Why is he blaming me for everything he is going through right now? Like honestly, why?

Molly Waters: I’m afraid that’s a question only Danny can answer at this point and perhaps we’ll get some clarity on Voltage. Regardless of that, you struck back last week and got yourself a match with Danny next weekend at Pain for Pride. Are you ready for that?

Candice Blair: As ready as I’ll ever be. If you would have told me that you had Candice Blair versus Danny Tanner at Pain for Pride on your #EAW15 bingo card, I would have laughed at you. It wasn’t that long ago that Danny and I competed for the Unified Tag Team Championships! We were a solid team. He gave me his briefcase back at King of Elite. I tried my best to help him defeat Jon Kelton because Kelton tried to end me! I mean, I would have loved to live in a world where Danny Tanner was the New Breed Champion. I would have been the greatest hype woman like ever.

Molly Water: Do you think some of the animosity Danny has towards you developed back at Reckless Wiring?

Candice Blair: I thought of that possibility, but even I know that Danny doesn’t believe I would cost him that match on purpose. Kelton damaged my vocal chords and could have ruined my singing career. Danny knows how much being a crossover star and role model means to me, so there’s absolutely no way he would ever think I’d give Jon Kelton a win. That guy is the literal worst. I think most of Danny’s anger towards me stems from when I invited his family to the show. I wanted them to be part of Danny Tanner Appreciate Night. I thought I was doing the best thing for Danny and I had no idea he was telling his family lies about the real nature of our relationship. It goes back to the whole honesty thing, Molly. If only Danny had been honest to start out with, NONE of this would have happened. I would have kept Danny’s family out of the picture and the two of us could have figured out a solution to his feelings together. I have seriously gone over every single conversation the two of us have ever had both literally and figuratively, trying to figure out who this man really is, and why he felt the need to turn his back on the only true friend he’s ever had. I can’t come up with any real conclusions, hence me wanting to know why. I have tried to apologize and own whatever it is Danny feels I have done wrong, but he has some apologizing and some explaining to do as well. But he won’t do it. Instead, he has decided to embrace a side of him that I didn’t think he had, and I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all and I refuse to let him abuse me. Danny doesn’t get to blame me for all his issues, most of which are self-inflicted and wouldn’t exist if only he had been honest from the very start.

Molly Waters: You said a line last week that really resonated with the EAW Universe and has received thousands of likes on social media. ‘Hell hath no fury like an Ava scorned’.

( A small smile crosses Candice’s face because no matter what she’s dealing with, she is still a major trending topic. )

Candice Blair: I come from a line of strong, amazing women and sadly, we’re no strangers to heartbreak and betrayal. I trusted Danny with my life and my career and he stabbed me in the back and right through my heart. I have been hurt and disappointed before, Molly. I know how to compartmentalize and move forward, but one thing I’m not going to do is let Danny throw my kindness to him back in my face. At Pain for Pride, Danny is going to find out what it means to be on my bad side and I promise you, he isn’t going to like it.

( The confidence and conviction in Candice’s voice makes Molly smile. No doubt the youngest Ava is fired up and ready for Pain for Pride. )

( The scene at Starbucks fades out and returns to real time. Sofia Clarke is standing by outside of the janitor’s closet and she is poised to knock on the door. )

Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, you just heard Candice Blair talk about her feelings towards former best friend, Danny Tanner. She’s clearly looking forward to getting revenge for his betrayal at Pain for Pride and right now, I’m hoping to get a few words with Danny.

( Sofia knocks on the door of the janitor’s closet which we all know is a favorite hang out of Danny’s. )

Sofia Clarke: Danny?

( Silence. Sofia knocks again. )

Sofia Clarke: Danny? I was hoping to get a few words with you about Pain for Pride…

( Silence. )

Sofia Clarke: Molly sat down with Candice earlier in the week and she seems pretty sure that she is going to walk out of Las Vegas with the vi-

( All of a sudden, the door is ripped open and Sofia is grabbed by the neck. She drops the microphone in shock as Danny Tanner forces her back against the wall and starts to choke her! )

Danny Tanner: Do you really think I give a fuck about what Candice Blair has to say? For months, I stood there and listened to every single thing that little whore had to say and quite frankly, I’m over it. I’m over pretty much everything, Sofia, and that right there isn’t a good thing.

( Sofia is gasping for air at this point and clawing at Danny’s hand. He only grips her throat tighter and a sinister smile crosses his face. )

Danny Tanner: There’s no telling what I’m going to do to Candice at Pain for Pride and she has no one to blame but herself. She made a mockery out of me week after week and I stood there and I fucking took it because I wanted that stupid bitch to like me. I wanted her to be my first and only, and I would have given her the fucking world. I HATE the fact I put so much time and effort into her, and I really HATE that I allowed myself to get caught up in her web of lies. Telling the world I’m gay? Acting like I’m some kind of fucking charity case? How… HOW could I ever let myself get blinded like that? I guess I just wanted to shove my face between those two plastic tits of hers and motorboat the fuck out of ‘em. Who knows?? But a man can only take so much…

( Danny squeezes Sofia’s neck as hard as he can before abruptly letting go. The Voltage interviewer slumps to the ground, gasping and coughing, desperate to get air back into her lungs. )

Danny Tanner: I can only take so fucking much. That beating I handed Candice after I returned was nothing compared to what I have in store for her at Pain for Pride. She crossed the line when she brought my family into the fold and humiliated me in front of them. I saw red. I saw that I wanted her blood on my hands. Week after week her surgically altered face would show up on my television screen and plead for my return. It made me sick to see those fake crocodile tears roll down her cheeks. Candice never gave a damn about me, or anyone else for that matter. The only person a slut like that cares about is herself. She can talk all the shit she wants and even shift the blame onto me, but at Pain for Pride, I am going to teach Candice a much needed lesson. She is going to be the example that I should have set a long time ago.

( Danny glares down at Sofia, who has finally caught her breath. She looks terrified at the moment and for some reason, that feels Danny up with glee. He grabs Sofia by the hair and jerks her up to her feet. )

Danny Tanner: How is that for my thoughts about Pain for Pride???

( Danny shoves Sofia away and heads back into the janitor’s closet. He slams the door shut behind him and with shaking hands, Sofia goes back to retrieve her microphone. She doesn’t have anything else to say, and the scene fades to black. )

[SCREENBAR: CLASH OF KINGDOMS 2: SHORES OF GOLD – MR. DEDEDE VS. MYLES]

( Sunday Night Voltage then goes to the sounds of the fans immediately cheering loudly. “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi begins to pump throughout the speakers of the stadium. Inside the ring, a very demure Bella Braxton steps forward. )

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

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

( Myles, followed by his girlfriend and fellow New Eden member, Minerva, steps onto the stage. )

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION MINERVA, FROM MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, WEIGHING IN AT 215 POUNDS… HE IS ‘THE WARLORD’ MYLES!!!!

( Minerva, who just moments ago defeated Cleo in a match to retain the National Elite Championship, gives Myles an encouraging smile, and they start to make their way down to the ring. Minerva has pulled a New Eden T-shirt over her full body gear, respecting the customs of the Middle East. Myles looks focused and determined when it comes to this match, and neither Minerva nor Myles have the championship or the Cash in the Vault briefcase with them. Neither of those things matters at the moment. )

James Peters: It’s been an insane show so far, and this match is no doubt going to be something special. Since February, Myles has been wreaking havoc alongside Minerva and the EAW World Champion, Drake King, as part of New Eden.

Rich Russillo: I know that last weekend, New Eden were looking to come out victorious during the first ever Stadium Stampede match, but things didn’t go their way. Team Dynasty managed to jump Drake while he was pinning Lethal Consequences, and Myles and Minerva were too busy being tied up with Theron Nikolas and Impact to help. The Visual Prophet would score the second win in a row for the Dynasty brand in the Territorial Invasion main event, and I’m curious to see how New Eden bounces back.

Persephone: Well unfortunately, Minerva retained the National Elite Championship in an absolute fucking snoozefest a few minutes ago, and I’m sure this match will put me to sleep as well. I legitimately wish Rex were here tonight because he would make this fucking wasteland worth it.

( Minerva and Myles stop at the steps, with Minerva giving Myles some words of advice. After a moment, Myles cracks a rare smile, something that is usually only reserved for Minerva anyway, and gets into the ring. )

( A few seconds later, “Follow God” by Kanye West takes over, and emerging from the back is Gawd himself. Mr. DEDEDE steps on the stage, dressed in an all white version of his gear, looking sexy as fuck, and he takes a look behind him. A curvy, petite figure walks out dressed in black leather leggings, a long sleeved black shirt, black combat boots, face and head concealed completely with a black studded mask like the kind Kanye sometimes wears, appears and saddles up beside Mr. DEDEDE. The only bit of color that shows is a stunning gold collar that is around this person’s neck, and no doubt that gold represents the fact that this person is none other Mr. DEDEDE’s devoted wife, the Answers World Champion. )

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT… BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION KING KASS, WEIGHING IN AT 218 POUNDS… HE IS ‘THE GAWD’ MR. DEDEDE!!!!

( King Kass links her arm through Mr. DEDEDE’s and the two make their way down to the ring, painting quite the picture. )

Persephone: :krabs: Should Bella really have announced that whore as a King in the middle of this kind of woman hating environment??

James Peters: :lupe: Well, we somehow pulled off a mixed tag team match earlier without anyone getting shot, so let’s hope we avoid any drama here.

Persephone: Smart to keep that bitch hooded. I wish we could put a hood over Minerva too.

Rich Russillo: :mjlol: Anyways, I look forward to seeing what Mr. DEDEDE has in store for Myles here tonight. I think it’s interesting that the Chairman waited until Territorial Invasion to finally show his face, electing to keep Myles waiting when it comes to finding out who he would be facing here tonight. Mr. DEDEDE has always enjoyed toying with his opponents and making them sweat, and tonight we are going to find out if all that pays off.

( Mr. DEDEDE and King Kass make it to the ring, and King Kass lets go of her husband. No words are spoken between the couple. King Kass simply nods her head. Mr. DEDEDE stares at her for a moment, the pride in his eyes, before switching it off and directing his focus at Myles. He takes his time getting in the ring, hyping up the crowd, and shedding his ring jacket. Making Myles wait for him is just another game, and Myles cracks his knuckles, obviously ready for what could very well end up being the match of his life. )

( Finally, the referee calls for the bell. )

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

James Peters: I don’t know about you guys, but I am excited for this one!

Persephone: I could not be more bored, to be honest.

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE and Myles circle one another and it’s Mr. DEDEDE who takes the first shot of the match. His hand connects with Myles’ face, but the Cash in the Vault holder brushes it off and maintains his fighter’s stance. Myles goes for a right hand, but it is blocked by Mr. DEDEDE, who seizes control of the wrist.

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE draws Myles in and brings him down to the mat with a hip toss! He follows up with a stiff kick that connects right between the shoulder blades and he slams his foot into the back of Myles’ head! Mr. DEDEDE presses Myles throat first across the ropes and the referee has no choice but to start the five count as the Chairman is choking Myles.

Referee: One… two… three… four…

Persephone: DEDEDE breaks which means this match is gunna continue 🙄

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE pulls Myles up by the hair, but Myles uncorks a massive chop to the chest of Mr. DEDEDE! Mr. DEDEDE backs off just a bit and Myles runs the ropes! He looks for a running, high knee strike, but Mr. DEDEDE darts out of the way, runs the opposite direction, and comes flying back at Myles!

Rich Russillo: SPEAR!

Persephone: Side-stepped by Myles! Mr. DEDEDE puts the brakes on before he crashes into the ropes, but Myles with a dropkick! Mr. DEDEDE tumbles over the ropes but he lands on the apron! Myles looks for a shoulder thrust, but Mr. DEDEDE connects with a knee! Myles stumbles back and Mr. DEDEDE LEAPS ON THE FUCKING ROPES! SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY!!!!

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE immediately hooks the legs for the cover!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTT-

James Peters: Quick kick out by Myles!

Rich Russillo: Myles is helped to his feet and Mr. DEDEDE presses him back against the ropes. Mr. DEDEDE looks for a chop, but Myles nails Mr. DEDEDE in the chest with his boot! Myles reverses their positions and now it’s Mr. DEDEDE who’s pressed against the ropes and Myles lights him up with a series of blistering chops to the chest! Myles grabs Mr. DEDEDE and looks to whip him across the ring, but Mr. DEDEDE plants his feet and knocks Myles flush across the jaw with a forearm!

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE goes for another, but Myles is able to block this one and he unloads a stiff, shoot style kick to Mr. DEDEDE’s legs! Mr. DEDEDE fires back with a kick of his own, and these two warriors are kicking the shit out of one another! Myles isn’t holding anything back because he knows how big of a match this is for him. He looks for a spinning heel kick but Mr. DEDEDE manages to duck! Mr. DEDEDE tries for a lariat but Myles ducks, darts around Mr. DEDEDE and seizes him around the waist! Straitjacket suplex!

Persephone: That bitch at ringside belongs in a straitjacket.

Rich Russillo: :lupe: Which one?

Persephone: :oh: I was referring to the cumbucket but Minerva probably needs to have her head examined for thinking a big breasted ginger is even remotely sexy.

James Peters: :mjlol: You don’t have to tit shame Myles. Come on, now.

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE is able to power out before the referee can get into position to count the cover, but Myles is not deterred! Both men are back up and Mr. DEDEDE immediately chops Myles across the chest! Myles fires back with a chop of his own, and Mr. DEDEDE with a lariat! Myles crashes to the ground but right now his adrenaline is pumping! He pops with a step-up enziguri and sends Mr. DEDEDE crashing into the ropes! Myles back to his feet and there is a running knee strike that catches Mr. DEDEDE right in the temple!

James Peters: Myles is fired up right now and Minerva is banging on the apron, urging her man to keep going! Myles sizes up Mr. DEDEDE and there’s a beautiful leg hook belly-to-back suplex! Mr. DEDEDE rolls towards the ropes but Myles drags him back to the center of the ring and goes for the pin!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTW-

Persephone: Mr. DEDEDE powers out. Myles looks at the ropes and he thinks about going high risk! We don’t usually see this bozo take to the skies, but why the hell not? Who fucking cares what moves Myles usually does! This is Mr. DEDEDE we’re talking about and he may as well go for some fuckshit 630 corkscrew shooting star press into a legdrop!

Rich Russillo: Is that even a real move?

Persephone: :troll:

James Peters: Myles is steadying himself on that top rope and motioning for Mr. DEDEDE to get back up. MISSILE DROPKICK! Myles with a beautiful top rope dropkick that sends Mr. DEDEDE back down to the mat! Myles rushes to the opposite side of the ring, scales the ropes again, and there’s a diving senton! That might have knocked the wind out of Mr. DEDEDE and Myles isn’t about to let up. He quickly pulls Mr. DEDEDE up by the hair and locks him in an abdominal stretch. Myles is doing a great job of softening up the ribcage area right now, and those clubbing blows are just going to do even more damage to the Chairman. Myles looks great so far.

Rich Russillo: He does, but this match is still in its infancy. Myles drives his elbow into Mr. DEDEDE’s side, hooks him, lifts him up and brings him down to the mat with a nice sidewalk slam! Myles flips Mr. DEDEDE onto his stomach, hooks the neck, and flips over for a bridging front chancery submission! Mr. DEDEDE is in trouble!

Persephone: Is he, though? Look at their ring positioning. Myles is a fucking idiot for not dragging Mr. DEDEDE back to the center of the ring. Mr. DEDEDE’s long ass arms are reaching for the ropes and he’s going to get them. Myles is going to have to break and I’m going to have to continue calling this match like I really give a fuck about either of these two. Yuck.

James Peters: Seph is right on. Mr. DEDEDE just grabbed the bottom rope and that might cost Myles as this match drags on. The New Eden member breaks the hold before the referee gets to the count of give. Mr. DEDEDE tries to roll onto the apron but Myles pulls him back and jumps to his feet.

Rich Russillo: He waits for Mr. DEDEDE to haul himself up and Myles sprints towards the Chairman! Mr. DEDEDE sees him coming and cuts Myles off with a huge European uppercut! Myles is stopped dead in his tracks and Mr. DEDEDE with a snap suplex! Mr. DEDEDE is trying to collect his bearings but Myles is deadset on not letting up, despite getting planted with that suplex. He nails Mr. DEDEDE in the back of the head with a knee and Mr. DEDEDE slumps forward! Myles from behind, locking Mr. DEDEDE in a half Nelson, but look! Mr. DEDEDE uses his size advantage to fight his way free and he immediately drops down and rolls to the outside!

Persephone: :mjlol: Of course that hooded bitch goes to check on him.

James Peters: That’s King Kass, Persephone!

Persephone: 🙄 yeah, of course. The lady king. How could I forget?

Rich Russillo: Minerva is shouting at Myles to go after them and look! MYLES LEAPS OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A TOPE CON GIRO!

James Peters: MR. DEDEDE SHOVES KASSIDY OUT OF THE WAY AND TAKES THE FULL IMPACT OF THAT MOVE! MYLES GETS UP AND TAKES MR. DEDEDE, AND RAMS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!!

Persephone: I hope he dislocates DEDEDE’s shoulder.

Rich Russillo: :lupe: I would never wish that on Mr. DEDEDE.

Persephone: Because you’re a pussy and afraid of him.

Rich Russillo: 💯

James Peters: Myles rams Mr. DEDEDE’s shoulder into the ring post again and rolls him back into the ring. Myles connects with several elbow drops to that shoulder, and quickly looks for an armbar! MYLES GOES FOR THE ARMBAR! MR. DEDEDE LOCKS HIS HANDS! MYLES IS UNABLE TO PRY THEM APART! HE GOES FOR THE SHOULDER! MYLES WITH SEVERAL BRUTAL ELBOWS TO MR. DEDEDE’S SHOULDER AND HE IS ABLE TO PRAY THE ARMS APART!

Rich Russillo: BUT MR. DEDEDE FLIPS OVER MYLES! HE GETS TO HIS FEET RIGHT AS MYLES DOES AND MR. DEDEDE GRABS MYLES IN A HEADLOCK AND WRESTLES HIM TO THE GROUND! MR. DEDEDE FORCES MYLES SHOULDERS TO THE GROUND BUT MYLES IS ALREADY KICKING OUT!

Persephone: Why are you guys yelling about basic mat wrestling??

James Peters: Because when it’s Mr. DEDEDE, it’s the greatest mat wrestling of all time :wow:

Persephone: Please shut the fuck up. Rex McAllister could wrestle circles around DEDEDumbass.

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE and Myles are back up now, but Mr. DEDEDE is maintaining the headlock. Myles is looking to fight his way free and he is unloading elbow after elbow into Mr. DEDEDE’s abdomen and the Chairman has to let go. Myles quickly sprints to the ropes and looks to knock Mr. DEDEDE out with a big boot, but Mr. DEDEDE catches the foot! He spins Myles around but misses the lariat! Myles looks for a chop but Mr. DEDEDE catches his arm and he drops down, transitioning into a short arm scissors! Mr. DEDEDE has that firmly locked in, but Myles isn’t panicking. He looks for a way out and attempts to somersault over.

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE anticipates it and he scopes up Myles, driving him back first into the corner! Mr. DEDEDE lets go of Myles, backs up just a tad, and goes in! Boxing style punches connect all over Myles! Myles covers up, trying to defend himself, or at the very least block some of these shots, but it’s not working! Mr. DEDEDE begins driving his foot into Myles’ stomach and stomps him down into the ground! Mr. DEDEDE wraps Myles up in a front facelock and drags him towards the middle of the ring. Myles looks to grab Mr. DEDEDE’s right leg but Mr. DEDEDE with a clubbing blow to the back!

Persephone: God, this is so fucking boring. Where is the blood? Where is the gore?? This can’t be a Voltage sponsored match!

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE is up and drags Myles into a sitting position! Mr. DEDEDE to the ropes, but MYLES POPS UP! MR. DEDEDE LEAPS IN THE AIR BUT MYLES CATCHES HIM, SPINS HIM AROUND, AND DRIVES HIM DOWN INTO THE MAT WITH A VICIOUS SPINEBUSTER! Mr. DEDEDE was going for what I believe was a running elbow drop, but Myles stopped him dead in his tracks! Myles quickly goes for the legs, but Mr. DEDEDE boots him back! Myles bounces off the ropes and drives his knees down into Mr. DEDEDE’s stomach! Myles goes right back to the left leg, and he looks for a single leg crab, but Mr. DEDEDE grabs the ropes!

James Peters: The referee starts the count, but Myles lets go! Mr. DEDEDE quickly kicks him in the right thigh, which drops Myles to a knee! Mr. DEDEDE back up now and Myles eats a stiff, nasty kick right to the face! Mr. DEDEDE floats over Myles, grabbing him up in a headlock, but Myles counters with a head scissors! Mr. DEDEDE slips out of the hold and both men are back to their feet but it’s Mr. DEDEDE with a huge uppercut!

Persephone: 😴😴😴

Rich Russillo: Myles fires back with a forearm and another! MYLES WITH SEVERAL RAPID FIRE FOREARMS THAT HAVE ABSOLUTELY CAUGHT MR. DEDEDE OFF GUARD! MYLES BACKS MR. DEDEDE ALL THE WAY INTO THE CORNER! MYLES GRABS MR. DEDEDE BY THE HAIR AND DRIVES HIM FACE FIRST ONTO MYLES’ OWN KNEE!

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE is sprawled on the mat right now and Myles intends to make sure he stays there! He grounds Mr. DEDEDE with a side hadlock and you can see that King Kass is slapping the apron, and trying to rally her husband up! Mr. DEDEDE is able to twist around and get to his knees, but Myles refuses to let go.

Persephone: Ugh.

Rich Russillo: Myles still has the headlock cinched in but Mr. DEDEDE has brought both men back up! Myles squeezes tighter and he keeps Mr. DEDEDE from breaking free! He throws Mr. DEDEDE down onto the mat, and Mr. DEDEDE is now using those long legs of his to knee Myles in the shoulder! Myles can’t keep his grip and Mr. DEDEDE slips out of the headlock and gets Myles in the back of the head with a big boot!

James Peters: Myles’ face slams into the mat and Mr. DEDEDE is real quick to grab him up and toss him into the corner! Myles is met with several jumping shoulder thrusts into the stomach and now Mr. DEDEDE is backing off! He races around the ring and there’s ‘RAPTURE’!!! THE HELLUVA KICK CONNECTS RIGHT TO THE KISSER! MR. DEDEDE FOLLOWS UP WITH A SPINNING BACK FIST! HE DRAGS MYLES FROM THE CORNER AND ABSOLUTELY DESTROYS HIM WITH ‘DEMOLITION’! THE DIAMOND CUTTER HAS TAKEN MYLES DOWN AND MR. DEDEDE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTT-

Persephone: :noah: Why did he have to kick out?

Rich Russillo: Because Myles is one of the most resilient and gutsiest competitors we have in EAW today. Love him or hate him, he is incredible inside the ring. New Eden might not give a damn about championships and accolades but Myles is definitely someone who is destined for greatness.

Persephone: Damn. You may as well just wipe his ass with your tongue because that was more than just kissing up.

Rich Russillo: :mjlol:

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE with an Irish whip now. Myles slams back first into the corner and the Chairman once again gets a running start! Corner clothesline to Myles! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! MYLES’ HEAD JUST SNAPPED BACK AT A NASTY ANGLE AND MR. DEDEDE GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR AND HE IS SLAMMING THE BACK OF MYLES’ HEAD INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! THE REFEREE IS URGING MR. DEDEDE TO GET OUT OF THE CORNER BUT HE REFUSES! HE TURNS MYLES AROUND AND BEGINS BASHING THE AUSTRALIAN’S FACE AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES NOW!

Rich Russillo: MYLES IS BEING ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED HERE! MR. DEDEDE RAMS MYLES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST AND HE DUMPS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!

Persephone: This match still isn’t worth yelling over…

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE stalks Myles on the outside. I wonder what he has in mind, guys :lupe:

Rich Russillo: Something sinister judging by that evil look in his eyes. If there is one thing we can all agree on, it’s that Mr. DEDEDE is one of the most sadistic wrestlers in EAW history.

Persephone: :wtf: Speak for yourself. I don’t agree with that. If he were as SaDiStIc as you claim, then this match would be fucking bloody.

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: It may not be bloody, but something bad is about to happen :lupe:

Persephone: :krabs:

James Peters: MR. DEDEDE HAS MYLES UP IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION AND HE SLAMS HIM SPINE FIRST ACROSS THE EDGE OF THE RING APRON! HE MAINTAINS CONTROL AND SLAMS THE BACK OF MYLES’ HEAD OFF THE EDGE OF THE RING! MR. DEDEDE HANGS ONTO MYLES, TAKES OFF RUNNING, AND PLANTS MYLES WITH A SPINEBUSTER RIGHT ON TOP OF THE RING STEPS! MYLES MIGHT BE BROKEN IN HALF!!!

Rich Russillo: Minerva quickly rushes to check on Myles, but Mr. DEDEDE is quick to grab Myles before Minerva can get to him and throws him back in the ring. Minerva is clearly pissed off at this turn of events but there is nothing she can do about it, and she knows that.

James Peters: Even if she could, King Kass is right there to make sure that the National Elite Champion doesn’t put her hands on Mr. DEDEDE.

Persephone: Mr. DEDEDE elects not to go for the cover and instead kicks Myles in the back of the head. He is stomping away on him, and honestly, this better give Myles a concussion or I’m going to be super pissed off about it. If you’re not gunna give me blood, then you better give me a fucking head injury.

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE is looking for the ‘Infiniti Lock’ now, but Myles has enough wherewithal left to crawl to the ropes. Mr. DEDEDE is real quick to snatch him back by the hair and jerks Myles to his feet! Myles with an absolute desperation rake to the face of Mr. DEDEDE, and that allows him to put some much needed space between the two of them. Mr. DEDEDE was starting to dominate the match and that’s not something Myles can let happen.

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE is quickly back into this match, though! Myles barely had a chance to breathe as Mr. DEDEDE comes barreling towards him with a running forearm! Myles eats that shot, and Mr. DEDEDE now with a snapmare! He kicks Myles right in the shoulder and THERE’S THE ‘INFINITI LOCK’! THE OMOPLATA SHOULDER LOCK IS APPLIED!!!!

Persephone: The look on Myles’ face is one of absolute agony and I totally stan that!

Rich Russillo: We both know that Mr. DEDEDE won’t feel a single ounce of remorse if he tries to rip that shoulder out of its socket!

James Peters: Myles is trying to reach the ropes, but look at Mr. DEDEDE! He seems to be enjoying this a little too much. Myles kicks back his own leg, doing whatever he can to try and get the rope break, but Mr. DEDEDE releases the hold? He released the hold…

Persephone: Because now he is stomping on the injured shoulder of the Cash in the Vault holder :drakelike:

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE drops back down and once again applies the ‘Infiniti Lock’! There is literally nothing Myles can do at this point but suffer or tap.

James Peters: Right now he is opting to suffer and you can see the look of concern written all over Minerva’s face right now. In my mind, Myles is no doubt a future world champion, and he has clearly faced some of the biggest names in EAW history. But this match is different. This match is against Gawd himself, and there is no bigger superstar in our sport than that man right there. Mr. DEDEDE is just built differently.

Rich Russillo: I’m not sure how long Myles can hang on, but Mr. DEDEDE doesn’t seem to want to wait. He transitions into an armbar, and he is looking to tap out Myles right now! Myles is in a world of hurt! Myles is reaching for the ropes, but he’s not close enough. Minerva is screaming at Myles to break free, but there is nowhere for him to go!

Persephone: If he taps out now, this match ends and we can move on with our lives :drakelike:

James Peters: I don’t think Myles is going to tap out, and deep down, I think Mr. DEDEDE knows that too. He wrenches back on that arm as far as he can, which forces Myles to bend backwards, and Mr. DEDEDE lets go! Myles eats a face full of canvas and Mr. DEDEDE violently elbows him in the back of the head!

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE gets up and I think he’s looking to end this match right now! He pulls Myles up and THERE’S ‘GRAND SLAM’! MR. DEDEDE JUST HIT HIS VERSION OF THE ROCK BOTTOM AND HE DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Persephone: :noah:

James Peters: MYLES KICKS OUT RIGHT AS MINERVA JUMPS ON THE APRON! MR. DEDEDE SEES MINERVA AND HE FLIPS HER THE MIDDLE FINGER! KING KASS IS BEHIND MINERVA NOW, AND SHE PULLS HER OFF THE APRON! MINERVA’S FACE SLAMS AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE RING BUT THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION IS QUICK TO GET TO HER FEET! THIS CROWD DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK AS KING KASS AND MINERVA ARE FACE TO FACE! THE LOOK IN MINERVA’S COLD BLUE EYES IS ONE OF PURE MALICE, AND GAWD KNOWS THE KIND OF LOOK MINERVA IS GETTING IN RETURN UNDERNEATH THE KING’S MASK.

Rich Russillo: We can’t see King Kass’s face at all and that might be one of the most intimidating things about this entire scene. The three of us have gotten a chance to know Minerva and we know how cold she really is. We know how cruel and calculating she can be. You can see it in her eyes, but you can’t see anything on Kassidy’s face right now. Whether that’s by design or there is some other reason for her face being concealed tonight, we don’t know, but Minvera is ready to spit fire at the Answers World Champion.

Persephone: We’re in Kuwait, right? Why are they trying to draw attention to themselves? This whole crowd looks like they’re ready to stone both women considering the fact they’re taking away from a men’s match. I don’t whether or not to laugh at that or be offended considering I’m having to sit here in a fucking burqa and sweat to death.

James Peters: 😅😅 haha Persephone didn’t really mean to sound offensive you guys.

Persephone: Shut the fuck up. You know I did.

Rich Russillo: MYLES CATCHES MR. DEDEDE FROM BEHIND WITH A ROLL-UP!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

James Peters: KICK OUT FROM MR. DEDEDE! HE WAS KEEPING AN EYE ON HIS WIFE AND THE OTHER ON MINERVA, AND THAT ALLOWED MYLES ENOUGH TIME TO RECOVER AND ALMOST STEAL THE WIN! MR. DEDEDE IS LIVID AND HE QUICKLY REBOUNDS, SPRINTING TOWARDS MYLES AND LOOKING FOR A SPEAR!

Persephone: MYLES DARTS OUT OF THE WAY AND MR. DEDEDE CAN’T STOP HIMSELF THIS TIME! HE FLIES OUT OF THE RING AND LANDS IN A HEAP ON THE MAT, AND MINERVA GRABS KASSIDY TO KEEP HER FROM RUSHING TO HIS AID! KASSIDY TRIES TO FEND OFF MINERVA, BUT MINERVA SENDS HER CRASHING INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS! MYLES HAS MR. DEDEDE AND HE RAMS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE STEPS!

Rich Russillo: MYLES AND MINERVA SHARE A SMILE WITH ONE ANOTHER, AND MYLES GRABS MR. DEDEDE UP AND TOSSES HIM BACK INSIDE THE RING! MYLES PULLS MR. DEDEDE UP TO HIS KNEES AND JUST UNLOADS KNEE STRIKE AFTER KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO MR. DEDEDE’S FACE! MR. DEDEDE IS ONLY UPRIGHT BECAUSE MYLES HIS HOLDING HIM THERE AND MYLES DELIVERS ONE FINAL, DECISIVE KNEE THAT DAMN NEAR KNOCKS MR. DEDEDE OUT! MYLES SCOOPS MR. DEDEDE UP, DROPS HIM THROAT FIRST ACROSS THE TOP ROPE, AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE CORNER!

James Peters: MR. DEDEDE MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY BUT MYLES IS ABLE TO STOP HIMSELF FROM HITTING THE TURNBUCKLES! MR. DEDEDE COMES LOOKING FOR ‘RAPTURE’ BUT MYLES ROLLS TO THE LEFT AND THE CHAIRMAN GETS CAUGHT ON THE ROPES! MYLES LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE BUT MR. DEDEDE SCURRIES UP THE ROPES!

Persephone: SUPERKICK BY MYLES! HE GRABS MR. DEDEDE OFF THE TOP ROPE AND THERE’S A RUNNING SITOUT POWERBOMB! MYLES SLIPS TO THE OUTSIDE AND GETS HIMSELF SET ON THE APRON… SPRINGBOARD METEORA! HIS KNEES LAND RIGHT IN MR. DEDEDE’S CHEST AND MYLES HOOKS THE LEGS FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTT-

Rich Russillo: MR. DEDEDE POWERS OUT!

James Peters: The tides have certainly changed in this match and I give Minerva a lot of credit for that. She knew exactly how to provoke King Kass and that led to Mr. DEDEDE being momentarily distracted. It was just enough to let Myles back into this match and now he’s firmly in control.

Persephone: That’s unfortunate because this match could have been over if Minerva had just known her role. Dumb ass bitch prolonging my suffering for literally no reason.

Rich Russillo: Myles is quick to hook Mr. DEDEDE into a sleeper, but that seems to wake the Chairman up just a bit! He doesn’t want to get trapped in a submission, and he’s flailing about, trying to get his legs under him. We’ve already mentioned that Mr. DEDEDE is the bigger of the two and with his legs under him, he is forcing both of them back up. Myles does his best to hang onto the sleeper but Mr. DEDEDE wraps his arms around Myles’ head and hits a jaw breaker to break the hold!

James Peters: DDD falls back against the ropes but uses the momentum to propel himself forward, taking Myles down with a massive lariat! DDD pounces and hauls Myles up, clubbing him over and over in the back and head. DDD is looking for a piledriver BUT LOOK! Myles blocks the piledriver, drives his fist into Mr. DEDEDE’s rib area, and he is able to lift DDD up! Back body drop my Myles! Both men are back to their feet simultaneously, and it’s DDD who greets Myles with a massive right hand! Myles fires back with a jumping knee strike that catches DDD under the chin! DDD looks for another right hand, but Myles blocks, hits the ropes, and catches DDD with a running forearm smash! Myles runs the ropes again and this time DDD takes a nasty forearm to the back of the head! DDD drops to his knees and Myles with a superkick!!!

Persephone: Myles stands over DDD and looks down at the damage he’s done so far. He clearly sees that it’s not nearly enough and he begins stomping on Mr. DEDEDE’s chest and face. DDD is able to fire back with a kick that connects to Myles’ right leg, but Myles doesn’t let up on DDD! Thank Gawd, too! I’m ready to move on with my life and someone needs to just go ahead and win this match, so I can call it a day.

Rich Russillo: DDD continues to fight back, which doesn’t surprise any of us! He continues landing those kicks and it seems like Myles has had enough. He grabs a handful of hair and drags DDD over to the turnbuckles. He smashes the Chairman’s face off the top one a few times before turning him around and going for a series of nasty chest chops! Mr. DEDEDE’s chest is bright red and Myles puts an exclamation point on this flurry of offense with a European uppercut!

James Peters: Myles doesn’t waste any time dragging DDD from the corner and snapma- no! DDD WITH A REVERSE AND HE IS GOING FOR THE ARMBAR AGAIN! MYLES WAS ABOUT TO SNAPMARE DDD DOWN, BUT DDD GOT A HOLD OF THE ARM AND WENT FOR AN ARMBAR! MYLES HAS HIS HANDS LOCKED, BUT LOOK AT DDD! HE IS DRIVING HIS KNEE INTO MYLES CHEST! MYLES TAKES FIVE… SIX… SEVEN… EIGHT… NINE… TEN STRAIGHT KNEES TO THE CHEST! DDD RELEASES THE ARM AND THERE’S A KESAGIRI CHOP! DDD FOLLOWS UP WITH A PALM THRUST DIRECTLY TO MYLES THROAT AND WRAPS HIS HAND AROUND MYLES NECK! HE LIFTS HIM UP, CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HIM, AND HE SLAMS MYLES DOWN!

Persephone: :gladbron: DID YOU GUYS SEE HOW HARD MYLES HIT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD??

Rich Russillo: DDD JUST JAMMED HIS THUMB INTO MYLES’ WINDPIPE AND HE’S LIFTING HIM UP BY THE NECK AGAIN! DDD SWITCHES TO A TWO-HANDED CHOKE AND HE’S GOT MYLES ALL THE WAY IN THE AIR! MYLES IS KICKING AND TWISTING, BUT MR. DEDEDE ISN’T ABOUT TO LET HIM GO! GAWD CHARGES TOWARDS THE CORNER AND MYLES IS CHOKESLAMMED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLES!!! MYLES SLUMPS TO THE GROUND AND MR. DEDEDE DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER BY THE ANKLE AND GOES FOR THE COVER!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTT-

James Peters: MYLES GETS THE SHOULDER UP!

Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE IS ANNOYED BY THAT AND HE GRABS UP MYLES! HE PLACES HIM ACROSS HIS SHOULDERS AND I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT HE’S GOING FOR A FIREMAN’S CARRY!

James Peters: BUT MYLES HAS OTHER IDEAS! HE IS KNEEING AND ELBOWING MR. DEDEDE AND HE’S BROKEN FREE! MYLES IS ABLE TO LAND ON HIS FEET, GRAB MR. DEDEDE’S ARM, AND HE DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO MR. DEDEDE’S FACE!!! MYLES TAKES A MOMENT TO CATCH HIS BREATH AND THERE’S ‘CHECKMAYT’!!! THE RINGS OF SATURN ARE LOCKED IN AND MR. DEDEDE HAS ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE TO GO! MYLES THROWS HIS HEAD BACK AND TIGHTENS HIS GRIP! MR. DEDEDE IS TRAPPED! I REPEAT… MR. DEDEDE IS TRAPPED!!!!

Persephone: MYLES WASN’T AS STUPID THIS TIME AND MADE SURE HE HAD DEDEDE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! DEDEDE’S ARMS ARE TRAPPED AND HE CAN’T EVEN STRETCH HIS LEGS OUT TO GET A ROPE BREAK! TAP OUT! PASS OUT! I DON’T REALLY CARE! JUST FUCKING DIE SO THIS MATCH CAN BE OVER WITH ALREADY!

Rich Russillo: It’s going to take a hell of a fucking effort to tap out Mr. DEDEDE. I highly doubt the man is just going to throw in the towel.

James Peters: :lupe: He might not tap, but Myles sure as fuck can make him pass out. Mr. DEDEDE’s face is already turning several shades of red. The only thing that is saving Mr. DEDEDE right now is the plethora of experience he has under his belt. He’s been in far worse situations before and found a way out, and he’s going to be looking to escape this time around.

Persephone: :oh: Myles cranks the neck back further but Mr. DEDEDE is able to get his knee up and drive it right into Myles’ skull! Myles’ stubborn pride won’t allow him to let go and Mr. DEDEDE cracks him in the head again! DDD SENSES HE HAS AN OPENING AND HE JUST BEGINS BEATING MYLES IN THE HEAD WITH HIS KNEE! MYLES HOLDS ON FOR AS LONG AS HE CAN BUT HE HAS TO LET GO! MR. DEDEDE WAS ABOUT TO KNOCK HIM UNCONSCIOUS AND NOW THAT HE’S FREE, MR. DEDEDE CRAWLS TO THE ROPES!

Rich Russillo: MYLES IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS NOW AS HE GETS UP, AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING MR. DEDEDE IS USING THE ROPES TO HELP HIMSELF UP! MR. DEDEDE IS TRYING TO SHAKE SOME FEELING BACK INTO THAT ARM, AND MYLES IS TRYING TO MAKE SURE HIS BRAINS AREN’T SCRAMBLED! THIS HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE, BACK AND FORTH WAR SO FAR, AND I GET THE FEELING THIS IS FAR FROM OVER :lupe:!!!!

James Peters: BOTH MEN ARE STUMBLING TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER AND MR. DEDEDE INVITES MYLES TO TAKE A FREE SHOT!

Persephone: :mjlol: Remember when his dumbass wife did the same thing with TLA at Midsummer Massacre and then basically got her ass beat the entire match? I do :drakelike:

Rich Russillo: MYLES KICKS MR. DEDEDE IN THE STOMACH INSTEAD AND GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD! MYLES LOOKS TO SPIKE MR. DEDEDE WITH A DDT, BUT MR. DEDEDE REVERSES AND TRIES TO HOOK MYLES WITH A SWINGING, SPINNING NECKBREAKER! MYLES SLIPS FREE, DARTS AROUND MR. DEDEDE, AND THERE’S A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! THE BACK OF MR. DEDEDE’S HEAD SLAMS INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND HERE COMES MYLES! RUNNING SINGLE LEG DROPKICK CONNECTS ON MR. DEDEDE!

James Peters: MYLES DRAGS MR. DEDEDE OUT OF THE CORNER, PICKS HIM UP, AND DRIVES HIM BACK INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! MYLES TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE SPRINTING FORWARD AND STRIKING MR. DEDEDE WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! HE FOLLOWS UP WITH A SUPERKICK, AND QUICKLY DRAGS HIS OPPONENT OUT OF THE CORNER! MYLES KEEPS UP THE OFFENSE BY STRIKING MR. DEDEDE OVER AND OVER IN THE HEAD WITH HIS FIST, DROPPING THE CHAIRMAN TO HIS KNEES. MYLES WITH MULTIPLE KICKS TO THE CHEST AND ARMS, AND USES HIS KNEE TO NAIL MR. DEDEDE IN THE TEMPLE! MYLES KICKS MR. DEDEDE ONTO HIS BACK AND GOES FOR A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! MYLES GRABS THE LEGS AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEE-

Persephone: DEDEDURRRRR KICKS OUT!

Rich Russillo: I THINK MYLES KNOWS THAT WAS NEVER GOING TO BE ENOUGH! HE SIGNALS FOR THE END, AND HE’S HELPING MR. DEDEDE BACK TO HIS FEET! MYLES GETS THE GAWD UP, AND HE IS LOOKING FOR ‘THE DE FACTO’! IF MYLES HITS SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP, THIS MATCH COULD BE OVER!

James Peters: MR. DEDEDE MANAGES TO BLOCK, AND HE SLIPS HIS LEFT LEG BEHIND MYLE’S FOOT, AND SENDS BOTH OF THEM TUMBLING TO THE MAT! MR. DEDEDE UNLOADS A FLURRY OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS, AND MYLES FIRES BACK WITH PRECISE PUNCHES THAT HIT THEIR MARK! THESE TWO MEN ARE BRAWLING ALL OVER THE RING NOW, AND IT’S MR. DEDEDE WHO FINALLY COMES OUT ON TOP AND BEGINS TO BEATING THE ABSOLUTE SHIT OUT OF MYLES!

Persephone: MYLES IS COVERING UP, BUT DEDEDE IS ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS! HE STANDS UP AND STOMPS AWAY ON MYLES! MYLES’ HEAD IS BEING TURNED TO MUSH AND DEDEDE FINALLY GRABS HIM UP! HE DRIVES MYLES FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND KICKS HIM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD! DEDEDE GRABS MYLES AND TOSSES HIM TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!

Rich Russillo: MR. DEDEDE CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE AND URGES MYLES TO GET UP! MYLES IS SLOW TO GET TO HIS FEET BUT MR. DEDEDE LAUNCHES HIMSELF IN THE AIR! FLYING CROSSBODY TAKES DOWN MYLES!!!! MYLES SMACKS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD ON THE GROUND! MR. DEDEDE IS UP AND HE IS RIPPING UP THE PROTECTIVE PADDING! HERE COMES MINERVA, BUT SHE IS QUICKLY CUT OFF BY THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! THE REFEREE JUMPS FROM THE RING AND GETS BETWEEN MINERVA AND KING KASS, AND MR. DEDEDE GRABS MYLES BY THE HAIR! HE CLIMBS TO THE RING APRON AND THERE’S A SENTON NECKBREAKER THAT PLANTS BOTH OF THEM ONTO THE CONCRETE!

James Peters: MINERVA HAS THROWN THE REFEREE TO THE SIDE AND HAS A HOLD OF THE KING! MINERVA ATTEMPTS TO WHIP KING KASS INTO THE BARRICADES BUT THE KING HAS OTHER PLANS! SHE CLOCKS MINERVA WITH A FOREARM AND SENDS HER CRASHING INTO THE RINGPOST! MR. DEDEDE QUICKLY GRABS HIS WIFE BY THE COLLAR AROUND HER NECK AND TUGS HER AWAY FROM MINERVA! HE ORDERS HER TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE RING AND HE THROWS MYLES BACK INSIDE! MYLES ROLLS TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND I CAN’T BELIEVE HE IS ABLE TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! MYLES HAS TAKEN QUITE A FEW BLOWS TO THE HEAD DURING THIS MATCH!!!

Persephone: FUCKING IDIOT! DEDEDE IS JUST WAITING ON HIM AND THERE IT IS! THE SPEAR! THE SPEAR! THE SPEAR CUTS MYLES IN HALF AND MR. DEDEDE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: SHOULDER UP! SHOULDER UP! MYLES GOT HIS FUCKING SHOULDER UP! I CAN’T FUCKING BELIEVE THAT MYLES GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!

James Peters: MR. DEDEDE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS THAT MYLES WOULD KICK OUT OF THE SPEAR! HE BEGINS TO DELIVER EVEN MORE CLOSED-FIST PUNCHES TO MYLES’ FACE AND HEAD AND NOW HE HAS HIM BY THE THROAT! MYLES’ HEAD IS BEING SLAMMED INTO THE CANVAS OVER AND OVER, AND I THINK MR. DEDEDE IS TRYING TO KNOCK HIM OUT! MR. CASH IN THE VAULT COULD BE OUT!

Persephone: I HOPE SO! I FUCKING HOPE SO! THIS MATCH SHOULD HAVE BEEN OVER AGES AGO! DIE MYLES DIE!

Rich Russillo: MR. DEDEDE STOPS CHOKING MYLES AND GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

James Peters: KICK OUT! MYLES FUCKING KICKED OUT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEE-

Persephone: FUCK! MR. DEDEDE KICKS OUT! MR. DEDEDE IS BACK UP! SPEAR! SPEAR!

James Peters: MYLES COUNTERS WITH A DESPERATION KNEE STRIKE THAT CAUGHT MR. DEDEDE IN THE FACE! MR. DEDEDE IS DOWN! MINERVA, WHO HAS COLLECTED HERSELF AFTER GETTING THROWN INTO THE RING POST, IS SCREAMING AT MYLES TO GET UP! MYLES IS CRAWLING TOWARDS THE ROPES AND THIS CROWD SEEMS SPLIT ON HOW THEY WANT THIS TO END! MYLES HAS SHOWN SO MUCH HEART IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES, KICKING OUT OF A SPEAR, DESPITE ALL THE ABUSE HE HAS TAKEN! I’M NO DOCTOR BUT THAT GLASSY LOOK IN HIS EYES MAKES ME BELIEVE HE MIGHT BE CONCUSSED :lupe:

Rich Russillo: MYLES MIGHT WANT TO TURN AROUND BECAUSE MR. DEDEDE IS UP TOO! MYLES LOOKS UTTERLY OUT OF IT AND DESPITE TAKING THAT NASTY KNEE TO THE FACE, MR. DEDEDE IS GOING RIGHT FOR MYLES!

Persephone: WHAT???

James Peters: HOLY SHIT! MYLES WITH AN ABSOLUTE DESPERATION LARIAT THAT CUT OFF A CHARGING MR. DEDEDE! MYLES HAS MR. DEDEDE UP NOW AND THERE IT IS! THERE’S THE ‘DE FACTO’! MYLES HAS THIS MATCH! MYLES HAS THIS FUCKING MATCH!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: THIS CROWD JUST LOST THEIR GODDAMN MINDS! MR. DEDEDE’S FOOT IS ON THE ROPES!

James Peters: MYLES LOOKS DEVASTATED! HE KNEW HE HAD THE MATCH WON WITH THAT! ANY OTHER OPPONENT! ANY OTHER MATCH! HE WOULD HAVE WON IT! MR. DEDEDE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY TO LEAVE HIS OPPONENTS HEARTBROKEN AND THAT DE FACTO MIGHT HAVE BEEN MYLES BEST SHOT TO ACTUALLY WIN THIS THING! YOU CAN SEE THE PAIN IN MINERVA’S EYES RIGHT NOW BECAUSE SHE KNOWS THAT WAS LIKELY MYLES’ BEST SHOT!

Persephone: MYLES HAS HIS HEAD BURIED IN HIS HANDS RIGHT NOW BUT HE’S COME TO FAR TO GIVE UP NOW. HE TRIES TO GET TO HIS FEET BUT HE STUMBLES A BIT, USING THE ROPES TO CATCH HIMSELF. MINERVA HAS RUSHED OVER TO HIM AND SHE’S PUT A COMFORTING HAND ON HIS FOOT. ALL SHE CAN DO IS RUB MYLES’ LEG AND ENCOURAGE HIM, AND HE’S JUST LEANED ON THE ROPES NOW, LOOKING DOWN AT HER :will:

Rich Russillo: :will:

Persephone: Okay, that is sweet as fuck and my girl emotions can not handle that. I really am just picturing Rex and me having a moment like that :mjcry:

James Peters: And if you look at the other side of the ring, Mr. DEDEDE has gathered his bearings and is basically licking his lips at the sight of Myles being obviously injured. Mr. DEDEDE, with his masked Mauler beside him, is a fucking ominous sight.

Rich Russillo: King Kass whispers something in Mr. DEDEDE’s ear and the Chairman pulls himself up. Myles turns around AND IS GREETED BY ‘RAPTURE’!!!! MR. DEDEDE SNATCHES MYLES OUT OF THE CORNER AND THERE’S ‘IMPALER’!!! THE LIFTING IMPALER DDT PLANTS MYLES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND MR. DEDEDE TURNS TO LOOK AT MINERVA! HE POINTS TO HIS HEAD, MOCKING MYLES’ FOR NOT PINNING HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING JUST MOMENTS AGO, AND MINERVA IS PISSED! HER COLD BLUE EYES NARROW AT MR. DEDEDE AND SHE LOOKS AT HIM WITH ABSOLUTE FUCKING DISGUST!

Persephone: THE FUCK?? MR. DEDEDE HEADS TO THE ROPE! THIS MOTHERFUCKER IS GOING TO BREAK A GODDAMN HIP IF HE DOES WHAT I THINK HE’S GOING TO DO!!!!

James Peters: OH NO. NO WAY. NO FUCKING WAY IS HE ABOUT TO PUT MYLES AWAY WITH THIS!

Rich Russillo: MR. DEDEDE LOOKS AROUND JABER AL-AHMAD INTERNATIONAL STADIUM AND SEES THE SOLD OUT CROWD ON THEIR FEET. EVEN THE SAUDI ROYALS IN THE FRONT ROW HAVE STOPPED TALKING AND ARE WATCHING WHAT I’M SURE IS ABOUT TO BE THE END OF THIS MATCH PLAY OUT! A SICK SMILE SPREADS ACROSS THE FACE OF THE GAWD AND HE CLOSES HIS EYES!

Persephone: ‘NORTH STAR’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A PICTURE PERFECT SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!!!

James Peters: MR. DEDEDE RIGHT ON TOP OF MYLES!!! THE REFEREE QUICKLY RACES INTO POSITION FOR THE COVER!!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Persephone: WHAT THE FUCK????????????????????????????

Rich Russillo: THIS CROWD HAS GONE BERSERK! THEY ARE SCREAMING, STOMPING THEIR FEET, AND CHANTING!!!!! FUCKING MYLES! MR. CASH IN THE VAULT! EAW’S FUCKING WARLORD JUST KICKED OUT!!!!

James Peters: I AM FUCKING FLOORED! TWO PEOPLE… COUNT THEM! TWO. ONE. TWO. HAVE EVER FUCKING KICKED OUT OF THE ‘NORTH STAR’.

Persephone: WELL NOW IT’S THREE PEOPLE, JIM! I DON’T FUCKING KNOW HOW! I DON’T KNOW WHY! BUT MYLES JUST FUCKING KEPT HIMSELF ALIVE!

Rich Russillo: :lupe: But at what cost?

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE has sat up, and that look on his face just gave me the fucking chills. King Kass has gone as still as a statue on the outside of the ring, and even though we can’t even see her eyes, we know they are locked on her husband’s. Every bit of emotion has drained from the face of Mr. DEDEDE and he takes his time getting up. He looks down at Myles, who has turned onto his side and is trying to get the air back into his lungs. Minerva has taken a step back from the ring, and you can see the concern on her face.

Persephone: Mr. DEDEDE is standing there, staring at Myles, and I think he’s going to kill him. We are really about to see a fucking murder here in the middle of this shithole city.

Rich Russillo: The fact Myles has managed to survive this long is a true testament to the kind of special talent that he is. If you look beyond all the bullshit that New Eden spouts, matches like these are what someone like Myles lives for. Nothing is on the line. Nothing is to be gained for either man tonight other than a win. That’s all there is to this.

James Peters: Mr. DEDEDE takes a deep breath AND BEGINS KICKING MYLES IN THE HEAD! HIS FOOT CONNECTS WITH MYLES’ SKULL MULTIPLE TIMES! MR. DEDEDE JERKS MYLES UP, ONE ARM WRAPPED AROUND THE MAN’S NECK, AND HE JUST CONTINUES TO ELBOW MYLES IN THE SKULL! THE REFEREE ATTEMPTS TO INTERVENE BUT MR. DEDEDE SNARLS AT HIM AND WARDS HIM OFF! THE CHAIRMAN HAS BECOME UNHINGED! MR. DEDEDE IS MAKING SURE THAT MYLES WILL NEVER KICK OUT OF HIS FINISHER AGAIN! MR. DEDEDE LETS GO OF MYLES AND THE AUSTRALIAN SLUMPS TO THE CANVAS IN A HEAP! MR. DEDEDE THROWS HIS HEAD BACK AND LAUGHS BEFORE GRABBING MYLES AND THERE’S THE ‘MK DRIVER’!!!! THE LIFTING UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS ON MYLES!

Persephone: THIS SICK FUCK ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER THOUGH! HE’S DOWN ON THE MAT AND THERE’S A VERTICAL CROSS-LEGGED MUTA LOCK!!!!

Rich Russillo: THE ‘METH LOCK’ :damn:!!!! WE HAVEN’T SEEN MR. DEDEDE USE THAT IN AGES!!! THE REFEREE ISN’T GOING TO LET THIS MATCH GO ON ANY LONGER! MYLES IS OUT, LIKELY INJURED, AND THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL!!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( ‘Follow God’ by Kanye West begins to blast across the public address system, and Mr. DEDEDE is greeted with a rather mixed reaction. He lets go of the ‘Meth Lock’ and lumbers to his feet, demanding that the referee raise his hand. )

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER VIA STOPPAGE… MR. DEDEDE!!!!

( King Kass has slid into the ring and immediately crosses to her husband. Mr. DEDEDE hooks his finger under her collar to lift her chin up and he gives her a look of pure lust. He lets her go, and King Kass wraps her arms around his waist to congratulate him. Mr. DEDEDE drops a kiss on the top of her hooded head, and holds her as they enjoy the thrill of his victory. )

James Peters: What can I really say about that match? Mr. DEDEDE hasn’t been inside the ring since Pain for Pride and he might be more dangerous than he’s ever been in his life. Myles did everything he could, fighting through what we all believe to be a pretty bad concussion, and damn near pulled out the win if only Mr. DEDEDE had been positioned more towards the center of the ring.

Rich Russillo: I can’t even fault Myles for that, though. At that point, I don’t even think he knew where he was at, James. That ‘De Facto’ was all he had left, and believe it or not, I think a lot of people here tonight got behind Myles and wanted to see him win.

( The referee has helped Myles over to the edge of the ring, where Minerva is waiting. She gathers Myles in her arms and buries her face against his shoulder. To hell with the crowd, the customs, and everything else that is supposed to be appropriate. She clings to the love of her life, and makes sure in that moment, no matter how hurt he is, that his effort didn’t go unnoticed. Myles fought, with everything he had in him, and cemented the fact that he is a future world champion that is capable of holding that belt for a long time. Whether he believes in championships or not, ‘The Warlord’ is the future of the business, and that future is in damn good hands. Minerva pulls away from Myles, shoos the referee away, and wraps his arm around her shoulder. She secures her arm around his waist, and slowly, with Minerva helping him, Myles begins to walk up the ramp. The crowd gives Myles a huge ovation for his effort and his passion for just the pure love of combat. )

( As Myles and Minerva head out, the camera turns back to the ring. King Kass has taken a step back so everyone’s attention can be on Mr. DEDEDE. She stands on the outside of the ring, looking up, as he stands on the turnbuckles, nodding his head and basking in his own Gawdliness. )

(Promotional ad for Pain for Pride, where Myles defends his EAW World Championship against Minerva and Drake King.)

(‘Self Help Tape’ by Moses Sumney slowly fades out in the background as Captain Charisma stands in the ring with a microphone in hand, taking in the audience’s cheers.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… the Commissioner of Sunday Night Voltage…CAPTAIN CHARISMA!!!!

Rich Russillo: Wonder what Captain Charisma is out here for.

Persephone: Let’s hope to give me a raise, I don’t get paid enough to commentate with you two buffoons.

James Peters: Funny, I could say the same thing about you. But in regards to Captain Charisma, I heard he’s here to address the 24/7 Battle Royal, and those representing the Voltage side of things.

Rich Russillo: Only one way to find out, so silence, the commissioner is speaking.

James Peters: :wtf:

Captain Charisma: With a card stacked like Pain for Pride 15, no match can be overlooked, especially the 24/7 Battle Royal. An opportunity for people to elevate their careers by winning a contract that gives them a chance to cash in for any title of their choosing at any time. Our most recent example of this paying off would, of course, be Donovan Duke at King of Elite, waiting for an opportune moment to strike, and doing so during Jake Smith vs. Minerva. Now look at him! Defending his National Elite Championship against Ryan Wilson in what’s sure to be a great, albeit personal match between two talented competitors.

(The crowd cheers, the majority wanting to see Donovan get his hands on Ryan, and make him pay for his actions.)

Captain Charisma: But we’re not here to talk about Donovan Duke versus Ryan Wilson, because tracing back to the 24/7 Battle Royal, I announced the competitors two weeks ago who will be competing for the Voltage side of things, and for those that missed it, I’ll go over one more time. Because for starters, we had Lucas Johnson-

(The crowd stops Captain Charisma from continuing further with an uproar of boos, the Wrestling Machine certainly having not endured himself to the audience.)

Captain Charisma: As I was saying, you may not like Lucas Johnson very much, but you gotta acknowledge, he could be a possible favorite going into this match. After all, he was in the final three last year, and truly made his presence felt, garnering four eliminations. Not to mention, he is no stranger to this match, competing for his third year in a row. But this time, will the difference be Lucas walking out victorious? We’ve seen plenty underestimate him, and that can come back to bite em this year. Up next, we got Wildcard!

(There’s mostly boos, but there’s some members in the audience who actually cheer, showing that she’s been growing a fanbase during her tenure thus far on the side.)

Captain Charisma: A newcomer here, but it seems she’s clearly made an impression on some of you. And at Pain for Pride, I expect her to leave more than that, maybe a few scars, because this woman loves brutality. She’s called the “Grandmother of Hardcore” for a reason, and although this match isn’t about that particular stipulation, she’s still an unpredictable opponent, and if you wanna get her over the top rope, you’re gonna have to do some serious damage, knowing her resilence as well. …Haruka Kashimashi!

(The crowd bursts into cheers, everyone having become fans of this newcomer, who’s a mix of high flying, and hard hitting in the ring, making her extremely entertaining to watch.)

Captain Charisma: I’m sure Haruka is happy to have your support going into Pain for Pride, which will be her first, and what a way to make an impact like winning 24/7, which isn’t far fetched, given she does possess speed that’ll make it hard for an opponent to wrangle her, and strikes that’ll knock anyone loopy long enough to be tossed over the top rope. I look forward to seeing what she’s gonna do in the match, but I also look forward to seeing what Mary S. Atlas is gonna do in the match as well.

(The reaction she gets is mixed, but with most of the crowd leaning towards a positive reaction.)

Captain Charisma: She has made her name known on Voltage this season, competing in matches against Madison Kaline, Miku Sakai for her then Specialists Championship, and Holly Arrow. This woman has above and beyond shown her ability in this ring, and a great way to cap off the season would be the only one left standing in it out of seventeen other hungry competitors. Finally, Shane Gates!

(The crowd reverts back to complete booing, no one in the corner of Gates tonight.)

Captain Charisma: Two weeks ago, this man did interrupt me, but was soon interrupted himself by an aforementioned talent in this match, Haruka Kashimashi. Which got me thinking, I can hype these people up to you all day, but why don’t I allow them to come out and speak to you on their own behalf?

(The crowd cheers at the intrigue of that idea, loving the drama it can welcome if the competitors were to engage in a back-and-forth.)

Captain Charisma: Sounds like you guys are on board, so to all those names I just mentioned, the floor is open. If you got something to say, if you wanna stake your claim to the 24/7 Contract, then so be it.

(The crowd reigns down with boos as “Ready To Die” by The Notorious B.I.G. plays out Lucas Johnson, who’s wearing a Voltage-themed tracksuit, and Beats by Dr. Dre around his neck, having a microphone in hand.)

Persephone: This can’t be how we’re starting off. :noah:

James Peters: Looks to be, and he’s walking with a purpose, I wonder what Lucas Johnson has to say.

Persephone: You can’t be serious.

(Lucas begins speaking into the microphone as he starts walking up the steps, and entering the ring.)

Lucas Johnson: Stake my claim to the 24/7 Contract? Captain, my goal is very simple, and that’s to break through. I may have come up short against Jay Jerry Johnson, but I’m not gonna do the same here. Because Pain for Pride, I realize is my last chance in the season to prove why I’m the Wrestling Machine, and not just some ex-New Breed Champ. And I think this is the perfect opportunity to do it, like you said, I have the most experience going into this thing, and the others? Well, they’re not gonna be able to keep up with me.

(The crowd boos even more at this arrogant statement from Lucas.)

Lucas Johnson: Boo all you want, but it’s true. I am the most experienced, and I’m certainly the most dangerous in a field full of EAW rookies, who probably won’t be around in the next year or so. Meanwhile, I will, continuing to hone my craft, because while I’ve been here for years, I still maintain hunger to be the best, more hunger than anybody else in this company. Hunger that will carry me to victory, because at Pain for Pride, I’m focused to do one other thing, and that’s win on a grand stage like that for the first time in my career.

(The crowd reaction shifts back into cheers as “CALLING” by Siam☆Dream blares throughout the arena, playing out Haruka Kashimashi, who begins talking into a microphone while en route to the ring.)

Haruka Kashimashi: Lucas, I can appreciate setting goals for yourself, but I’m not gonna let you stand in the way of mine, which is to redeem myself from the Iconic Cup Tournament. I realize it wasn’t some dream performance, and I can certainly do better in showing these fans what I’m all about, even if it comes at your expense.

(Haruka looks at Lucas from the apron, talking directly to him before entering the ring.)

Haruka Kashimashi: And that whole spiel about you being the hungriest in this company, you’re not even the hungriest in this match. No, that title belongs to me. Because if you were actually hungry, Lucas, you wouldn’t continue to be the same competitor you’ve been for years, and actually start to show some improvement. My wrestling career may have started in 2020, but take a page out of my book, and realize that you can learn a lot from all the talented men and women in this company. And what I’ve come to learn is that you should never let an opportunity slip through your fingers, especially the 24/7 Battle Royal, which can make a star in one night.

(Lucas is clearly shrugging off any of what Haruka has to say, but ‘Nothing Helps’ by ONE OK ROCK is next to play, and Mary S. Atlas now walks down to the ring with a microphone in hand.)

Mary S. Atlas: You’re right! The 24/7 Battle Royal can make stars overnight, and that star will be me. Because I’m looking to end my season on a high note, and go into the next one with momentum, momentum that will carry me to championship gold, and give me the chance to prove myself as a competitor. Because like Cap said, I’ve been part of some truly big matches this season, but what good is that if you don’t win em? I don’t want people to think of me as just a competitor, I want them to think of me as THE competitor. One of the best to ever do it in EAW, and this match can be my stepping stone to that, even if there are a few hurdles in my way.

(Mary steps on the apron, and gestures to both Lucas and Haruka before entering the ring.)

Mary S. Atlas: Lucas, you might feel confident since our encounter at the Christmas event in Australia, but I’ve improved far more since then, and won’t let myself come up short to you again. Haruka? I just won’t let myself come up short to you at all. I’m determined to win that battle royal, and I don’t care what it is I have to do, I’m gonna find a way to do s-

(“Dark Eternal Night” by Dream Theatre interrupts Mary, much to her annoyance, and plays out Wildcard, who laughs to herself while holding a microphone, which she talks into while walking down the ramp.)

Wildcard: It’s funny that any of you think there’s a legitimate chance going into Pain for Pride, seeing as you’re nothing more than my victims. Lucas, you think you’re the most dangerous person in the match? Why don’t you have a look at exactly why I have a ring mat sponsorship. Because that white you’re standing in gets turnt to pure red by the time I’m done in it. No one should fear you, they should fear me, and the punishment I intend to give. Because before tossing you over the top rope, everyone will receive a scar to remember me by each time they look in the mirror…

(Wildcard enters the ring, and steps face-to-face with Mary S. Atlas.)

Wildcard: And you’ll have the worst one of all after last week.

Mary S. Atlas: Is that so?

(It looks like Mary and Wildcard are gonna come to blows, but ‘Swallowing the Rabbit Whole’ by Code Orange interrupts affairs as Shane Gates comes down to the ring with a microphone in hand, walking with a purpose, and beginning to speak as he steps up on the apron.)

Shane Gates: Since everybody is out here stating their motives for walking out of Pain for Pride victorious, guess I’m gonna state mine also. Because it has to do with them.

(Shane Gates points to the booing crowd.)

Shane Gates: Ya see, for every one of these fans that boo me, I thank you. I thank you for being the fuel that lights my fire, because when I win the 24/7 Battle Royal, I plan to shut each and every single one of you up. Because when that contract is in my hand, there will be no more setbacks, there will be no more mentioning of some stupid doll. But there will be mentioning of Shane Gates, and how I destroyed everyone in the Battle Royal, ending this terrible season off on a high note.

Haruka Kashimashi: I don’t know how you plan on walking out victorious at Pain for Pride when you couldn’t even do the same over me last week.

(Shane starts to get heated at this comment from Haruka.)

Shane Gates: Everybody knows you got lucky, okay? Cut the shit! Maybe another thing I can do in the Battle Royal is wipe that smirk off your face.

Haruka Kashimashi: Why wait til then? Come in this ring, and do it right now.

Shane Gates: Gladly.

(Shane Gates tosses his mic to the side, and enters the ring, staring down Haruka, who shows no fear. Meanwhile, Captain Charisma exits out of the ring, realizing something is about to go down in it.)

James Peters: OOH! LUCAS JOHNSON JUST CRACKED SHANE IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A MICROPHONE!

Rich Russillo: AND NOW THE FIGHT IS ON! EVERYBODY IS DUKING IT OUT!

James Peters: MARY LOOKS TO BE BUSY WITH WILDCARD, DELIVERING RIGHT HANDS ON THE CORNER!

Persephone: Hopefully everyone injures themselves, and can’t make it to Pain for Pride, would certainly make the battle Royal a whole lot shorter.

Rich Russillo: AFTER HITTING GATES WITH THIS MIC, HARUKA STARTED PEPPERING LUCAS WITH FOREARM STRIKES, BUT JOHNSON SHOVES HER BACK, AND RUNS TOWARD HER! POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR THE LIGHTSWITCH FINISHING MANUEVER!

James Peters: BUT HARUKA SIDESTEPS WHATEVER LUCAS HAD PLANNED THERE, SENDING HIM UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE! COULD BE A SIGN OF THINGS TO COM-

Rich Russillo: SORRY TO CUT YOU OFF THERE, PARTNER, BUT FROM BEHIND COMES SHANE GATES!

Persephone: I was hoping he’d be out of the equation after that microphone shot.

James Peters: NOT GONNA BE THAT EASY AS HE DUMPS HARUKA ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!

Rich Russillo: SHE ROLLS THROUGH TO HER FEET, LEANING UP AGAINST THE ROPES, AND CLUTCHING AT THE BACK OF HER NECK, BUT LOOK AT SHANE WHO CLOTHESLINES HER OVER THE TOP ROPE! MODIFIED VERSION OF SUFFER AS ONE THERE!

James Peters: SHANE TURNS AROUND TO NOTICE MARY, AND TRIES TO CHARGE HER WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT SHE DUCKS UNDERNEATH, TAGGING HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! HEADSHOT SPINS SHANE AROUND INTO LOVE LETTER! SITOUT SHOULDER JAWBREAKER BY WILDCARD!

Rich Russillo: BOTH WOMEN GRAB AHOLD OF SHANE GATES, AND SEND HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! BUT THEIR BEEF ISNT SETTLED ONE BIT AS THEY’RE IMMEDIATELY BACK TO HITTING EACH OTHER WITH RIGHT HANDS!

James Peters: WILDCARD MANAGES TO CATCH MARY IN A CHOKEHOLD, AND GET HER UP FOR THE CHOKESLAM EXPLODER SUPLEX! Mary looks to be out of it.

Rich Russillo: Wildcard pulls her up by the wrist, not done with Atlas just yet, and sets her up for a gutwrench powerbomb, aka Syke Out!

James Peters: BUT MARY LANDS SOME RIGHT HAND SHOTS TO THE TOP OF WILDCARD’S DOME, SLIPPING OFF HER SHOULDERS FOR WELCOME TO MARYLAND! WILDCARD IS AGAIN ON THE RECEIVING END OF THAT DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER!

Rich Russillo: AND ADDING INSULT TO INJURY, DUMPS HER OUT OVER THE TOP ROPE AS WELL!

(‘Nothing Helps’ by ONE OK ROCK plays, and Mary stands tall while everyone lies on the outside, some coming too to see her celebrate in the corner, garnering an impressed reaction from fans as the camera fades elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: VOLTAGE 10.17.2021 – DRAKE KING & MS. EXTREME VS. JUSTIN WINDGATE & MYLES; TAG TEAM TURMOIL SEMI-FINALS]

(Sunday Night Voltage comes back as the camera fades into the ring as Bella Braxton is seen with a smile on her face ready to announce the next match.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following TAG TEAM MATCH is a contest scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer begins to play up to the thunderous boos of the crowd upon seeing none other than Drake King make his way out to the stage, with the usual annoyed look on his face hearing the crowd’s negative reaction. He drags his EAW World Championship behind him while he looks around for a moment. Before long, ‘Cold War’ is replaced by ‘Zombie’ by Bad Wolves which blasts through the speakers of the arena to the loud cheers of the crowd upon seeing Ms. Extreme make her way out to the stage with the Universal Women’s Championship pridefully raised high with a smirk on her face. She stands at the center of the stage, turning her head and looking towards Drake, with her face turning cold. It isn’t long after that both of them make their way down the ramp and to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… the team of the EAW WORLD CHAMPION: DRAKE KING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION: MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Well we all saw the latest antics of #Dramille unfold last week, with Drake King managing to get a pinfall victory in the main event against Holly Arrow. The show ended off with Ms. Extreme attacking Holly after the match and with an unusual bear of positivity by Drake in response. If you ask me, they must be warming up to one another :wow:.

James Peters: Well that’s something that we’re just going to have to see for ourselves seeing as though they’re two very stubborn people who want to deny the inevitable relationship at every given point in time. At the end of the day, if they like it or not, though I know they like it, they have to fight till they either win this entire Tag Tournament or get eliminated from it, and even if they do win, imagine if they have to be Unified Tag Team Champions with one another. Either way, it’s #Dramille to the end :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:.

Persephone: Ever since Rex made his untimely exit at the start of Season 15 there was one thing that kept me going and actually made me somewhat motivated to come to my job everyday no matter how much ass the product was and the commentators that I’m forced to sit next to, #Dramille. Imagine if that ends with a loving relationship?! I’M HOOKED!

(Ms. Extreme jumps up onto the apron, looking out at the crowd before she enters into the ring. She takes her Universal Women’s Championship and raises it high in the air, stepping up onto the middle rope and boasting herself with a bright and enthusiastic smile on her face. Meanwhile, Drake is seen making his way up the steel steps and into the ring, chucking the EAW World Championship inside of the ring before he enters in as well. He doesn’t bother entertaining the crowd, instead he makes his way towards his corner and groups up with his partner. Both of them look towards one another as ‘Zombie’ begins to fade out, while they both briefly talk about gameplan.)

(‘High All The Time’ by 50 Cent begins to blast through the speakers of the arena to the absolutely loud cheers of the crowd upon seeing Justin Windgate make his way out to the stage with a smile on his face. He spreads his arms out and hypes the crowd up before focusing on the ring. He takes a deep breath, but before he can make his way down the ramp, ‘High All The Time’ is replaced by ‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi insinuating Myles making his way out to the stage to the loud boos of the crowd. He doesn’t waste any time with stupid theatrics, he just simply shoves through Justin and begins to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring. Justin stares a hole into Myles for a good moment, feeling uneasy before making his way down the ramp and to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: And their opponents, the team of JUSTIN WINDGATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And MR. CASH IN THE VAULT: MYLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Well I think we know the situation that Justin finds himself in tonight. Earlier in the night Donovan Duke was left for dead by Minerva after what happened in the intense meeting with Drake King and Captain Charisma. I think it’s become clear that Drake’s intentions were to pull New Eden out of the tournament and that was something they put into execution earlier. Justin knows this, we heard from him in the interview earlier, and he has a gut feeling that it’s going to happen to him as well. But he assured everyone, he was ready for such an attack.

James Peters: After everything that we’ve just seen, it makes me wonder exactly how this match is going to turn out? More importantly, how is the victor going to be crowned in the end. Will it be in the same regard as Donovan Duke & Minerva, or possibly, some other bullshit? At this point, who knows, all we can say for certain? Drake King and Myles in this match, causes for some huge trouble to be stirred in the pot like it or not.

Persephone: It was very funny watching Shorty D tossed around and left for dead, leaving Shorty J to pin him. Frankly, I do want to see that tonight, I’m invested, you got me interested for the first time you boring fucks! You better not let me down!

(Justin immediately jumps onto the apron, making his way towards the top rope and posing before pointing finger guns at the camera that’s focused on him with a big smile on his face. He mouths some words before he jumps off the top turnbuckle and onto the apron, circling around and making his way towards his corner while Myles is already there, he didn’t waste much time, just like Drake, he doesn’t really want to take the time out of his day to entertain people who don’t support the cause. From there, ‘Enemy Strike’ begins to fade out while the referee checks on everyone before ringing the bell.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: Here we go, what should be a very interesting main event is officially underway! Ms. Extreme is starting off for her team while Justin Windgate is starting off for his own, I think they both realize that it’s better off that way more than anything else. Both of them are beginning to circle around the ring, approaching one another and looking to engage in a Collar-and-Elbow tie-up to kick off this match!

James Peters: Justin in an instant trying to use his size to his advantage and begin to push Ms. Extreme towards the ropes, but Ms. Extreme saw it coming quickly going behind him and locking in a waist lock! Justin is caught by surprise and forced to fall against the ropes, both of them backed up and being forced to split up by way of rope break thanks to the referee. Ms. Extreme backs up and begins to make her way around the ring once again, which Justin does as well with zero problem in mind. Both of them lock up once again, but it’s Justin that slips behind her and sends her towards the ropes! Ms. Extreme rebounds, BEFORE JUSTIN LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK TO HER CHEST DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS!

Persephone: Bro got pissed he got bitched around by her and did that. :mjlol2:

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme gasping for air for a good moment before getting herself back up to her feet, but Justin already has her by her arm and sends her towards the corner this time with an Irish whip! Ms. Extreme backed up, trying to get out of the corner, BUT BEFORE SHE CAN DO THAT IT’S JUSTIN THAT RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO HER JAW! Justin throwing Ms. Extreme down and towards the center of the ring before jumping up to the middle rope, LEAPING OFF AND LOOKING FOR A MISSILE DROPKICK TOWARDS HER CHEST!

James Peters: But before that can happen, Ms. Extreme manages to side step letting Justin crash and burn! Justin grabbing at his spine as he sits up, BUT IT’S MS. EXTREME THAT RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS HIS FACE WHICH DROPS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! Ms. Extreme isn’t done though, running to the ropes and back, BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND DROPPING AN ELBOW DROP DOWN ON HIS CHEST!

Persephone: You have a shitton of moves in your arsenal, and you choose an elbow drop? Now if that isn’t stupidity then honestly, I don’t know what is.

James Peters: :wtf: What’s wrong with her hitting a wrestling move?

Persephone: You wouldn’t understand, simpleton.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme waiting for Justin to get back up to his feet now, which he begins to do slowly but surely. MS. EXTREME TAKING HIS ARM AS SOON AS HE GETS BACK UP AND DROPS HIM DOWN INTO AN ARM DRAG! Ms. Extreme isn’t done though, PULLING HIM BACK UP BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE FROM THERE! Ms. Extreme keeping the arm of Justin held, pulling him up to a seated position on the canvas, BEFORE RUNNING TO THE ROPES AND BACK AND CONNECTING WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK TO HIS FACE!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is on fire at the moment, not willing to let up the momentum she has as she picks Justin up and gets him back to his feet. Sending a knee towards his abdomen forcing him down to a knee, BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD AND LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH A SHINING WIZARD TO THE FACE OF JUSTIN! BUT IT’S JUSTIN THAT MANAGES TO DUCK HIS HEAD UNDER AND GRAB MS. EXTREME BY HER LEGS PULLING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND!

Persephone: Now keep a hold of her legs and start swinging her around the ring, she’s small enough to do so, besides, it’ll be funny.

Rich Russillo: Justin rolling her onto her back before setting her up, LIFTING HER OFF THE GROUND AND DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A BRUTAL POWERBOMB! Justin keeping his hold on her locked in, pinning her shoulders to the mat and going for a quick pin attempt in hopes of finishing this match off early!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWW-

James Peters: But Ms. Extreme quickly kicks out of the pin! If we know the Universal Women’s Champion we know damn well that it’s going to take much more to keep her fiery spirit down. Both of them are quickly getting back up to their feet, WHILE MS. EXTREME GOES FOR A RUNNING FOREARM TOWARDS HIS FACE! But Justin manages to duck under that, SPINNING AROUND AND CONNECTING WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE SIDE OF HER FACE DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS!

Persephone: How the fuck was he even able to do that? I can’t even lift my leg up that high, I swear some of you are on steroids why the fuck do we not have a wellness policy or something this is a bunch of bullshit.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme drops down, but stumbles back up to her feet with the last ounce of energy that she has left and begins to run towards Justin full speed ahead! But Justin manages to barely sidestep Ms. Extreme just in time before throwing her towards his corner! Ms. Extreme is backed up trying to recover, BUT IT’S JUSTIN THAT RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A SHOULDER THRUST TO HER ABDOMEN! Ms. Extreme is in a World of hurt while Justin looks towards his partner, Myles. Myles knows exactly what Justin is insinuating and it appears that he’s let out a sigh of annoyance.

TAG!

James Peters: TAG TO MYLES!

Persephone: FINALLY! SOME FUCKING WOMEN’S ACTION!

Rich Russillo: Myles enters right into the ring and wastes zero time beginning to unload on Ms. Extreme with stomps towards her abdomen to weaken her! Ms. Extreme is finding it tough to fend off the attack at the moment and that only worsens as Myles grabs her by her arm before sending her to the ropes with an Irish whip! Ms. Extreme rebounds off of the ropes, BEFORE MYLES LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND TAKES MS. EXTREME DOWN WITH A QUICK AND EASY SHOULDER TACKLE TO DROP HER DOWN!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is dropped down and before she can even collect herself it’s Myles that grabs her and quickly turns her around, LIFTING HER UP BEFORE DROPPING HER DOWN ON HER HEAD WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! Myles keeps ahold of her, still slowly bringing her up to her feet, BEFORE DROPPING HER DOWN INTO ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX FOR GOOD MEASURE AS WELL!

Persephone: Might as well keep doing that and tell Ms. Extreme to say goodbye to her neck, oh what good comedy that would be amiright?

James Peters: :dahell:

Rich Russillo: Myles is absolutely getting to work right now, making sure that he gets one step closer to getting Ms. Extreme down for good. Myles bringing Ms. Extreme back up, but despite everything that she’s been through so far she’s not giving in, sending forearm strikes towards his face! Myles was definitely taken by surprise when it comes to that, trying to fend off as many as he can but in the end being pushed towards the ropes! Ms. Extreme is still continuing to tee off making sure that she has Myles stunned for good before sending her into an Irish whip! WAITING FOR HIM TO REBOUND BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BACK ELBOW TO HIS NOSE!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is getting back into the groove of things as she drops down and quickly locks in a headlock on his head! She manages to keep Myles down on the mat momentarily while he attempts to reach his hands out towards the ropes while he has the chance. He scrunches his eyes, trying everything to escape out swiftly, but the only thing he can really do at the moment is muscle himself out of the hold by bringing him up to his feet. Ms. Extreme is keeping a good grip on him, but we need to remember who has the size advantage in this situation, and that’s obviously Myles and how his strength is a huge asset in this match!

Persephone: Most of that is in his chest by the way in case all of you didn’t know that.

Rich Russillo: Myles managing to get himself up to a vertical base, absolutely unloading on Ms. Extreme now with elbow strikes towards her abdomen! Ms. Extreme trying to keep ahold of him as long as she can, but she’s forced to let go and stumble back! Ms. Extreme runs forward trying to make sure that the advantage she has stays for the time being, BUT MYLES GRABS MS. EXTREME BY HER HAIR AND LAUNCHES HER ACROSS THE RING!

James Peters: Myles beginning to make his way towards the Universal Women’s Champion, BUT MS. EXTREME WITH THE LAST OUNCE OF STRENGTH THAT SHE HAS MANAGES TO GRAB AHOLD OF MYLES AND DROP HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND NARROWLY WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SLAM! Both of them are down on the ground as it’s apparent that Ms. Extreme is completely disheveled seeing how long she’s been in this match, but she manages to hold onto the ropes and bring herself up to her feet. She waits for Myles to get up to his feet, BEFORE KICKING HIM IN THE GUT AND GOING FOR A TWIST OF FATE!

Persephone: NOPE!

Rich Russillo: MYLES TURNS AROUND THE SPINNING NECKBREAKER AND SHOVES MS. EXTREME AWAY! Ms. Extreme stumbles forward before quickly turning around in a heartbeat knowing that the situation she’s in isn’t the greatest! BUT MYLES POPS HER UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN WITH WRATH OF PANDORA! THE CANADIAN RACK INTO A DDT CONNECTS! BUT MYLES DOESN’T SEEM TO BE GOING FOR A PIN RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is slowly beginning to crawl towards her corner, outstretching her hand and reaching for Drake King to tag him into the match, while Myles begins to rise to his feet and approach her before she can do so-

TAG!

Persephone: :yikes: Here we go with the fucking soap opera drama.

Rich Russillo: BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE TAGS HIMSELF IN! HE KNEW THAT HE DIDN’T WANT MYLES AND DRAKE IN THE SAME RING WITH ONE ANOTHER AND WANTED TO TAKE THAT PRECAUTION BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE!

(Myles looks at Justin in annoyance while Justin simply shrugs his shoulders. He enters into the ring and quickly runs towards Ms. Extreme, wasting zero time clutching onto her legs and attempting to pull her closer towards the center of the ring, but before he can…)

James Peters: JUSTIN TOOK TOO LONG AS MS. EXTREME BARELY MANAGES TO TAKE JUSTIN DOWN WITH A DROP TOE HOLD! Justin grabbing his face while he attempts to get back up to his feet, BUT MS. EXTREME THIS TIME GRABS AHOLD OF HIS LEGS BEFORE TRIPPING HIM ONCE AGAIN! Ms. Extreme now is beginning to crawl for dear life, realizing the situation that she’s in and questioning how much time she might just have before her opponents get the better of her. Ms. Extreme with the last bit of energy that she happens to have, TAKES A HUGE LEAP AND ATTEMPTS TO GO FOR A TAG TO HER PARTNER IN THE CORNER!

TAG!

Persephone: LMAOOOOO LOOK AT WHAT YOU’VE DONE JUSTIN! YOU JUST MANAGED TO LET HER TAG IN DRAKE!

Rich Russillo: Drake entering into the ring, LAUNCHING FORWARD AND CONNECTING WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE OF JUSTIN DROPPING HIM DOWN TO A KNEE! Drake isn’t done, grabbing him by his hair, BEFORE SLAMMING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! Drake quickly positions himself while he has the chance, STEPPING FORWARD AND DROPPING DOWN ON JUSTIN WITH A BEAUTIFUL STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS TAKING THE AIR OUT OF HIS BODY!

James Peters: Drake bringing Justin up with swiftness before popping him up on his shoulders and beginning to set him up, RUNNING HIM TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE PADDING AND GOING FOR A BUCKLE BOMB! But before that can happen Justin manages to slip out of it and land behind Drake, JUSTIN GRABBING HIM AND GOING FOR A REVERSE DDT! But it’s Drake that manages to bring his legs up and send a knee to his face! Justin forced to let go of the hold and step back, BEFORE DRAKE RUNS FORWARD AND GRABS HIM BY HIS HEAD BEFORE GOING FOR A SWINGING NECKBREAKER!

Persephone: Why aren’t any of them tired??? :noah: How long is this match going to fucking go on for before it fucking finishes?!

Rich Russillo: But Justin manages to slip through and shove Drake away before he can drop him down on his head! Drake stumbling forward, clutching onto the top rope. BUT IT’S JUSTIN THAT RUNS FORWARD AND SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE! Drake is sent down to the ringside area while Justin runs to the ropes and back, LEAPING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DROPPING DOWN DRAKE WITH A BEAUTIFUL TOPE CON HILO!

James Peters: Justin rolling back into the ring and clutching onto the ropes while Drake stumbles up to his feet, JUSTIN SPRINGING OFF THE ROPES THIS TIME DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SPRINGBOARD FOREARM! Justin grabbing Drake by his head before rolling him back into the ring, Justin jumping up onto the apron and beginning to make his way up to the top rope! BEFORE HE LAUNCHES OFF GOING FOR A CROSSBODY AS SOON AS DRAKE GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET!

Persephone: Oop, a big mistake by a big idiot, pretty fitting.

Rich Russillo: BUT DRAKE LEAPS UP AND CATCHES HIM IN MID-AIR! ROLLING HIM INTO A SWIFT SMALL PACKAGE PIN TO COUNTER THE AERIAL ATTACK BEFORE IT CAN CONNECT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

James Peters: BUT JUSTIN GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Both of them are immediately getting back up to their feet, WHILE JUSTIN GRABS HIM BY HIS ARM BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH AN ARM DRAG! Justin grabbing him by his arm and pulling him up to his feet, PULLING DRAKE TOWARDS HIM AND LEAPING INTO THE AIR LOOKING TO DROP HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A FRANKENSTEINER!

Persephone: Did he really expect that to work? Absolutely pathetic…

Rich Russillo: BUT DRAKE KEEPS HIM UP IN THE AIR BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN INTO A POWERBOMB! Drake rolling him through, BEFORE SETTING HIM UP AND DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH ASCENSION! THE PEDIGREE CONNECTS COMPLETELY TAKING JUSTIN OUT WHILE DRAKE ROLLS HIM ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR ANOTHER PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRE-

James Peters: BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO FIND THE POWER INSIDE OF HIM TO GET THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THE THREE COUNT!

Persephone: Unfortunately, James. Justin manages to find the power inside of him to get the shoulder up before the three count… unfortunately.

Rich Russillo: Drake popping up to his feet and grabbing the head of Justin and bringing him up, sending him towards the ropes and back, BEFORE GOING FOR A DROPKICK TO HIS CHEST! But it’s Justin that barely manages to drop down to the ground before it can connect! Drake drops down to his stomach while Justin slowly, but surely, helps himself up to his feet. It’s taking him a bit but ultimately, he’s muscling through it, but Drake is up way before him, stepping forward and sending a kick towards his gut! Drake bringing him up to his feet this time though. Stepping forward and sending a earth shattering European Uppercut, before grabbing him by his head and pulling him in for a knee strike!

James Peters: But despite that, Justin spins around and goes for a gut kick towards the abdomen of Drake out of nowhere! Drake stumbles backwards trying to collect himself, WHILE JUSTIN STEPS FORWARD AND ATTEMPTS TO GO FOR A SIDE KICK TOWARDS HIS CHEST! But Drake ducks under it, SPINNING AROUND AND CONNECTING WITH A DISCUS FOREARM SMASH TO HIS FACE! Justin stumbles back, REELING HIS ARM BACK AND GOING FOR A LARIAT! But it’s Drake that manages to kick the arm away with his boot! Justin stumbling back, BEFORE DRAKE RUNS FORWARD AND TAKES JUSTIN DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SLING BLADE! Drake falls against the corner, but begins to step forward while Justin gets back up to his feet, GOING FOR A SUPERKICK TO HIS JAW TO DROP HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!

Persephone: Very costly, now look at what you’ve done?! PERFECT TIME TO FINISH THIS MATCH RIGHT YOU MOTHERFUCKERS?!

Rich Russillo: BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO CATCH DRAKE AGAINST HIS JAW WITH A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN! Drake stumbles back, but attempts to swing a punch towards the head of Justin! BUT JUSTIN DUCKS UNDER IT AND MANAGES TO DROP DRAKE DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A MODIFIED RUN IT UP! SLICED BREAD #2 CONNECTS AS JUSTIN POPS UP TO HIS FEET AND FALLS AGAINST THE CORNER!

TAG!

James Peters: Before he… oh lord… before he tags Myles in…

(Myles looks absolutely perplexed, seeing Justin tag him in, especially seeing as though Drake is in this match. Myles blows a strand of hair away from his face before he slowly, possibly begrudgingly, enters into the ring. He looks towards Drake who is slowly beginning to stagger up to his feet, both of their eyes catching one another. There’s a moment of silence, with the crowd murmuring with anticipation to see what happens. There’s no telling what either of them are going to do in this situation, but it’s apparent that they’ve thought this out.)

Persephone: What is this… Kindergarten?! STOP FUCKING ACTING LIKE CHILDREN AND BE MEN FOR ONCE! I HATE VOLTAGE!

TAG!

TAG!

Rich Russillo: TAG TO MS. EXTREME! TAG TO JUSTIN WINDGATE! NEW EDEN ARE CLEARLY NOT HAVING IT RIGHT NOW!

(The crowd roars in disapproval thanks to this act of presumed cowardice in their eyes. Meanwhile, both Justin and Ms. Extreme have very telling reactions plastered on their faces. Ms. Extreme is kind of annoyed at this, especially weighing the fact that Drake is her partner. She scrunches her face for a good moment before beginning to make her way into the ring. Meanwhile Justin? Justin expected this, which is why he tagged out in the first place, he wanted to see what would happen between the two New Eden members. Though despite that, he saw this coming from a mile away thanks to what he watched earlier in the night. So right now? He pays no mind to it, it’s a situation that he can undoubtedly handle, which is why he quickly enters into the ring.)

James Peters: JUSTIN ENTERING INTO THE RING AND REALIZING THE GOAL AT HAND CONNECTING WITH A FOREARM SMASH TOWARDS THE HEAD OF MS. EXTREME BEFORE SHE CAN EVEN ENTER INTO THE RING! Ms. Extreme keeps a hold of the top rope on the apron before she can fall off, but Justin attempts to swing another punch her way! BUT IT’S MS. EXTREME WITH A HOT SHOT DROPPING HERSELF OFF THE APRON!

Persephone: Ms. Extreme should be dead right now, I don’t know why we’re insisting on letting her continue in this match when she looks like she just smoked 50 packs of cigarettes and she has lung problems. Get her out of here so this match can end quicker.

Rich Russillo: Justin stumbles back while Ms. Extreme slides into the ring, CONNECTING WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! Justin tries to get up to a knee in some sort of timely manner, BUT IT’S MS. EXTREME THAT MANAGES TO TURN HERSELF AROUND AND SEND A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TOWARDS THE SIDE OF HIS FACE DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!

James Peters: Justin grabbing onto the ropes and quickly trying to get back up to his feet, BUT MS. EXTREME TURNS AROUND AND RUNS TO THE ROPES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS THE SIDE OF HIS FACE TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! Justin instantly crumbles down while Ms. Extreme grabs him by his head before bringing him towards the center of the ring, USING SOME HUGE STRENGTH AND DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT THIS TIME WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX!

Persephone: Or maybe, just maybe, Justin is fucking small.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is right back up, yelling at Justin to get back up to her feet. BEFORE SHE RUNS TOWARDS JUSTIN WITH A CODE RED ATTEMPT! SUNSET FLIP BOMB! BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO COUNTER IT AND TURN IT INTO A MOVE THAT HE CAN SHIFT THE MOMENTUM INTO! AND LEAP INTO THE AIR DROPPING MS. EXTREME WITH A SPANISH FLY!

James Peters: Justin has no time to spare, beginning to climb up to the top rope and position himself! JUSTIN UP ON THE TOP AND GOING FOR X-FACTOR! GOING FOR A SHOOTING STAR PRESS!

Persephone: YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME!!!

Rich Russillo: WAIT! MS. EXTREME WITH THE IOTA OF ENERGY THAT SHE HAS LEFT CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE BEFORE DROPPING JUSTIN DOWN WITH GLASS CEILING! THE TOP ROPE STUNNER CONNECTS COMPLETELY TAKING OUT JUSTIN WHILE MS. EXTREME ROLLS HIM ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR A PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRRRRREEE-

James Peters: BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! NOT YET MS. EXTREME, THIS MATCH CONTINUES ONWARD!

(Ms. Extreme scrunches her face as she tries to get herself back up to her feet. She clutches onto the ropes and shakes her head, slowly dragging herself towards her corner and reaching out her hand, a hand that Drake King happily accepts.)

Persephone: Just kiss already, dammit.

TAG!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE IS TAGGED IN!

James Peters: Drake enters into the ring and looks down at Justin, clearly unhappy at his mere presence, but I don’t think Justin really cares. The matter is no matter what is thrown at him, he’s going to keep fighting regardless and refuse to give in even against the best of the best. Drake grabbing him by his hair and bringing him up to his feet, but before anything can happen Justin manages to shove Drake away!

(Justin is stumbling on his two feet, very dazed and fluttering his eyes every so often to keep consciousness. Drake is clearly slightly enraged in response to this, but before he can do anything, Justin begins to yell towards him.)

Justin Windgate: (Off-Mic) YOU’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE ME DOWN, DRAKE! NOT AGAIN! NOT AGAIN! YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO FUCKING KILL ME AND EVEN THEN I’M GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT’S A CHALLENGE FOR YOU.

(Silence.)

Drake King: (Off-Mic) Ok.

Rich Russillo: :lupe:

James Peters: :lupe:

Persephone: :mjlit:

Rich Russillo: DRAKE RUNNING TOWARDS JUSTIN AT FULL SPEED, BUT IT’S JUSTIN THAT MANAGES TO STEP UP AND CONNECT WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO HIS FACE! Justin stumbles forward and goes low, grabbing Drake by his waist and pushing him against an empty corner! And immediately he’s beginning to tee off with punches and forearms to his face, which Drake tries to block to the best of his ability! I don’t even know how long Justin is going to fight for, but it’s clear he’s in for the long haul and is going to wrestle for however long it takes to make sure that Drake stays down for the count.

James Peters: Drake manages to shove Justin away before anything else can happen, Justin stumbles back, before running towards Drake in hopes of coming back! BUT DRAKE USES THE ROPES TO KICK JUSTIN IN THE FACE! Justin stumbles back, but Drake grabs him by his head, BEFORE SLAMMING HIS FACE AGAINST THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! Justin stumbles back, stirring and trying to keep himself up! BUT IT’S DRAKE THAT TURNS HIM AROUND AND SETS HIM UP, TAKING HIS HEAD OFF WITH A RIPCORD LARIAT!

Persephone: Did I just see a tooth knocked out of Justin’s mouth?! Quick! Let me get it, it’ll make a great addition to my bloodlust shrine.

James Peters: Firstly, what the fuck. Second, that was just spit.

Persephone: Oh.

Rich Russillo: Drake is down on a knee while Justin is completely splayed out on the ground. Lord knows how much these poor Elitists can take but they are so willing to continue this match that we might as well just let them. Besides, I’m sure Captain Charisma is having an absolute field day seeing all of this unfold. Drake grabbing Justin and slowly beginning to bring him up to his feet, but he seems to have a hard time at the moment as Justin nearly collapses down to the mat with his weight getting the better of Drake’s strength.

James Peters: Drake shaking his head and beginning to make his way out of the ring, grabbing Justin by his leg and pulling him out of the ring, giving him more leverage as he keeps ahold of Justin! BEFORE SLAMMING HIM SPINE FIRST AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON! Drake isn’t done as he grabs Justin by his head and sets him up, BEFORE THROWING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE THIS TIME COMPLETELY TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND!

Persephone: Man, you might as well just pin him now to be honest. Poor dude is on life support and you want to continue to bully him. I mean, I totally don’t wouldn’t do that.

James Peters: :mjpls:

Rich Russillo: Drake rolling Justin back into the ring before he enters back in himself, making his way over and grabbing Justin with a disgusted look on his face, it seems he finds himself with the perfect leeway to end this right now! DRAKE GOING FOR OVERHAUL! SWINGING REVERSE STO TO DROP JUSTIN DOWN TO THE GROUND!

James Peters: But Justin manages to avoid that! Justin miraculously keeping himself alive as he runs to the ropes and back while Drake turns around in pure shock, BEFORE JUSTIN LAUNCHES INTO THE AIR AND TAKES DRAKE DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A TORNADO DDT! Drake scrambles up to his feet while Justin begins to circle around the ring, LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND TAKING DRAKE DOWN THIS TIME WITH A BIG HURRICANRANA TO GET HIM BACK ON TOP! HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?!

Persephone: I don’t know, but if you ask me? I blame witchcraft.

Rich Russillo: Justin is beginning to slowly rise up to the top rope, sweat drizzling off of him like he just got out of the shower as he stands perched on the top turnbuckle! LEAPING OFF AND CONNECTING WITH A FROG SPLASH TO COMPLETELY CRUSH DRAKE AND TAKE ALL THE AIR OUT OF HIS BODY! Justin isn’t done though, taking an invisible blunt, BEFORE GOING FOR SMOKE BOMB! ROLLING THUNDER TOWARDS DRAKE!

James Peters: BUT DRAKE MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE THAT CAN INEVITABLY CONNECT! Justin crashes and burns while Drake grabs him and brings him up to his feet, BEFORE LIFTING HIM OFF THE GROUND AND DROPPING HIM DOWN WITH A BIG FALCON ARROW TO THE CANVAS! Drake now is beginning to make his way onto the apron, looking for something big! DRAKE CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND GOING FOR A PHOENIX SPLASH OFF THE TOP ROPE!

Persephone: Please miss, please miss, please miss, please miss…

Rich Russillo: BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO CLIMB UP AND GRAB DRAKE! PULLING HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE AND SENDING THEM BOTH CRASHING DOWN TO THE GROUND! Both of them are slowly beginning to rise, Drake taking most of the damage but still managing to muscle out the strength to find some sort of equal ground with Justin. Justin runs towards Drake, but Drake manages to move out of the way! DRAKE WITH A JUMPING KNEE! But Justin manages to duck under that! BUT BOTH OF THEM ONCE AGAIN CONNECT WITH SUPERKICKS TO ONE ANOTHER! THIS TIME AT THE SAME TIME DROPPING THEM BOTH DOWN TO THE GROUND IN PURE EXHAUSTION!

James Peters: Both of them are down on the ground, Drake and Justin are completely out of it but they seem to be slowly showing signs of life regardless. Drake is clutching at the canvas with all his might and focuses on beginning to make his way towards the corner, realizing the danger that he finds himself in right now. And I think we can say the same thing with Justin who is making his way towards Myles as well! BOTH LEAP TOWARDS THEIR RESPECTIVE CORNER!

Persephone: Cue the slow motion, cue the dramatic moment, cue whatever.

TAG!

Rich Russillo: MYLES IS TAGGED IN!

TAG!

James Peters: MS. EXTREME IS TAGGED IN!

Persephone: Told you.

Rich Russillo: Both of them are entering into the ring, with their reinvigorated energy and adrenaline it’s like they’re a bullet shot out of a gun! MYLES ATTEMPTS TO GO FOR A KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS THE FACE OF MS. EXTREME! But Ms. Extreme manages to duck under it and run to the ropes and back, GOING LOW AND CONNECTING WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK TO THE KNEECAP OF MYLES TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! Myles attempts to get himself back up to a seated position, BUT MS. EXTREME TURNS HERSELF AROUND AS SHE RUNS TO THE ROPES AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR TAKING MYLES DOWN WITH A METEORA TO HIS FACE!

James Peters: Myles grabbing his head while he tries to get up to his feet, but Ms. Extreme wastes zero time stepping forward and sending a forearm shot towards the face of Myles! Myles is sent back momentarily, but quickly responds back with a forearm of his own! Myles is stunned, but he’s showing that he can continue to fight regardless! But that might just be proven wrong with Ms. Extreme stepping forward and sending a knee strike towards his abdomen! Myles stumbles backward, BUT USES THAT MOMENTUM TO RUN FORWARD AND SLIP BEHIND HER BEFORE LIFTING HER OFF THE GROUND AND DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A BACK SUPLEX!

Persephone: This is just like an anime, where the main character gets the shit beat out of him by the antagonized. He’s all bloody, his shirt is torn and bruised. Yet despite that, his teeth somehow manage to be squeaky clean and he still manages to beat the shit out of the villain regardless and come back with the win. I don’t watch anime, because that’s for weebs… looking at you Myles… but that’s what this whole entire match reminds me of, it’s so fucking annoying and all of you just need to GET THE FUCK OUT SO WE CAN END THE SHOW!

Rich Russillo: Myles is slowly beginning to get himself up, despite the offense being in his favor at the moment, you can tell how tired he is and how much he’s been through in this match. Admittingly, they’ve all been through the wringer, but he’s the perfect example. Myles grabbing Ms. Extreme by her hair before bringing her up to her feet, sending her to the ropes with an Irish whip attempt! BEFORE MYLES RUNS FORWARD AND GOES FOR A KNEE STRIKE THAT IS PRIMED TOWARDS HER FACE! But before that can happen Ms. Extreme manages to slide under the legs of Myles just in time to avoid it!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme manages to quickly get back up to her feet while Myles turns to face her as well. Myles attempts to run towards Ms. Extreme, BUT MS. EXTREME TURNS AROUND AND RUNS TO THE ROPES, SPRINGING OFF OF THEM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE OF MYLES TO DROP HIM DOWN TO A KNEE! Myles isn’t down for long, managing to get himself back up to his feet, BUT IT’S MS. EXTREME THAT MANAGES TO GRAB MYLES BY HIS HEAD AND RUN HIM FORWARD BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN FACE FIRST INTO A BULLDOG!

Persephone: This mean and intimidating man is seriously getting the shit beat out of him by a small girl that probably weighs two-times less than him and is about a third of his size. This is really pathetic, but should I be surprised anymore?! This is the Voltage roster! Behind those masks of ultraviolence lies a bunch of fucking pussies and I don’t know why I anticipate them being anywhere near better than the bar I set as low as possible for them. Let me get fucking real here before overhyping them.

Rich Russillo: Myles grabbing his face in a world of hurt while he clutches the ropes for dear life, BUT MS. EXTREME TURNS ON HER HEELS BEFORE RUNNING TO THE ROPES AND LOOKING TO STOMP DOWN ON HIS FACE! But it’s Myles that manages to move out of the way and push Ms. Extreme against the ropes! MS. EXTREME TURNS AROUND ATTEMPTING TO GO FOR A SPINNING BACK FIST! But Myles manages to duck under that and send a shoulder thrust towards her abdomen! Myles grabbing both of Ms. Extreme’s arms before trapping them both against the ropes! I think we know what he’s going to do now.

James Peters: MYLES RUNNING TO THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO HER FACE! MYLES ISN’T DONE BECAUSE HE ONCE AGAIN RUNS TO THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE TO HER FACE! MYLES IS LOOKING TO KEEP THIS GOING AND THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD EXPECT OUT OF SOMEONE LIKE MYLES AS HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS HER FACE! MYLES IS GOING FOR ANOTHER ONE, RUNNING TO THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH ANOTHER TO THE FACE OF MS. EXTREME FOR GOOD MEASURE! THE ROPE TRAPPED REPEATED RUNNING KNEE STRIKES CONNECT AS MYLES PULLS MS. EXTREME OFF THE ROPES AND DROPS DOWN, HOOKING THE LEGS AND GOING FOR THE PIN! WILL THIS BE IT?!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Persephone: FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT KICKING OUT! HUH?! HAVEN’T YOU ALL ALREADY BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH?! WHAT THE FUCK IS THE POINT OF PUTTING ALL OF YOU THROUGH THIS EVEN MORE?! JUST STOP! NOT BECAUSE THIS IS SOME REAL BULLSHIT! BUT BECAUSE THIS IS ALL JUST FUCKING UNACCEPTABLE! I’VE HAD ENOUGH! GOD! GOD! DAMN!

James Peters: Persephone, please calm down, it’s not that serious.

Persephone: SHUT THE FUCK UP!

James Peters: :will:

Rich Russillo: Myles is slowly crawling towards the ropes, and he just has to be questioning what he has to do to finish this match, but it’s apparent that it’s not going to be as easy as he anticipates it to be. Myles gets back up to his feet and shakes his head, clutching his head in obvious pain but continuing to muster out the strength to push through it. Meanwhile, Ms. Extreme is beginning to get herself up to her feet as well. BUT NOT FOR LONG AS MYLES GRABS HER BY HER HEAD IMMEDIATELY AND BEGINS TO SET HER UP, DROPPING HER DOWN ON HER HEAD WITH A BRUTAL BRAINBUSTER!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is once again taken down, and I think the only real way she can see herself surviving any longer is rolling out of the ring. Ms. Extreme tumbles down, but still manages to clutch onto the apron for dear life while he has the chance. She is fighting the good fight, but I don’t think she sees Myles exiting on the apron and looking to set her up! MYLES RUNNING TOWARDS HER AND LEAPING OFF THE APRON GOING FOR A RINGSIDE METEORA TO DROP THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!

Persephone: BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY LIKE A RATIONAL PERSON! You see how easy it would’ve been to just roll out of the ring and attack her from there? Shit like that just doesn’t make sense because here Myles is, sprawled out right in front of me with two bum knees after that wack landing. Make it make sense folks, because some of you are too stupid for your own good and that doesn’t really do you much favors as a result. Think before you do it, kind of like drunk driving, I think.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme falls against the apron, leaning against it while slamming her hands repeatedly against the apron to fight through all the pain that she’s been through. Myles stumbles up to his feet, BUT MS. EXTREME GRABS HIM BY HIS HEAD BEFORE SHE SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON! That had to hurt Myles while Ms. Extreme grabs him and rolls him back into the ring, while she enters into there as well to follow, making sure to continue the fight inside of the ring.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme falling against the corner, where she sees the only rational thing being she begins to climb up and stand on the middle turnbuckle to get ready for an attack. Myles tries to rise to the best of his ability but it’s clear the toll this match has taken is beginning to slowly get the better of him every chance it gets. MS. EXTREME LEAPING OFF THE TOP ROPE AND GOING FOR A MISSILE DROPKICK TO TAKE MYLES DOWN TO THE GROUND! What a move by Ms. Extreme as she gets right back up and yells at the top of her lungs while hyping the crowd up! How long will these competitors be able to go for?!

Persephone: No, the answer is absolutely not. There’s no time for how long this match is going to take, just no, stop this right now because this is some fucking bullshit.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme gets Myles right back up before throwing him towards the ropes, MYLES USES THE MOMENTUM TO TRY AND GO FOR A LARIAT! BUT MS. EXTREME DUCKS UNDER AND TURNS AROUND BEFORE TRYING TO GO FOR A LARIAT BACK! Myles absorbs the attack though, stumbling backwards as both of them stare a hole into one another! It’s like this match has just begun all over again!

James Peters: Both of them are wasting no time going after one another, beginning to go off and absolutely tee off one another to no end! MYLES! MS. EXTREME! MYLES! MS. EXTREME! MYLES! MS. EXTREME! MYLES! BUT MS. EXTREME FINALLY STOPS HIM CONNECTING WITH AN UPPERCUT TO HIS JAW! Myles stumbles back while Ms. Extreme runs towards him, BUT MYLES POPS MS. EXTREME UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A POWERBOMB! But Myles isn’t done right now! Myles keeping her up in that powerbomb looking to do much more to make sure that somehow Ms. Extreme manages to stay down for good! MYLES SPINNING AROUND AND CONNECTING WITH A SPINNING SIT-OUT POWERBOMB NOW!

Persephone: Look, I’m calling the shots right now. You might as well call me Captain Charisma except I’m more talented, more gorgeous, more intelligent, more skilled, more sound, you know, practically everything I’m just better than Captain Charisma in general I think that’s something we can admit to ourselves. Look, how about Myles or Ms. Extreme lays down for the other and we can just count the pin AND GET THIS SHIT OVER WITH! I’M SICK AND TIRED ALRIGHT! LET’S STOP BAITING ONE ANOTHER AND GET TO THE FUCKING FINISH! GOD FUCKING DAMN! I’M TIRED!

Rich Russillo: MYLES RUNNING TOWARD MS. EXTREME AND GOING FOR A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! But it’s Ms. Extreme that moves out of the way and grabs Myles, BEFORE RAMMING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! Myles bounces out of the corner, not falling against it instead managing to keep himself upwards despite everything. BUT MS. EXTREME RUNS FORWARD AND LEAPS OVER MYLES AND CONNECTS WITH CODE RED! THE SUNSET FLIP BOMB SENDS MYLES INTO THE TURNBUCKLE AND COMPLETELY TAKES HIM OUT FOR THE MOMENT!

James Peters: Myles is down on the ground while Ms. Extreme paces back and forth in the ring. She sees Myles continue to crawl with all of his might and it’s apparent that the one thing that he wants to do, is tag out before Ms. Extreme gets the better of him and somehow manages to stand tall at the end of this exchange between the two of them. But weirdly, it looks like Ms. Extreme is letting him do that. She simply smirks towards Justin while she yells at him to get his ass in the ring, and Justin, despite everything he’s been through, seems happy to oblige.

TAG!

Persephone: CANNABIS IS TAGGED IN!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN JUMPING OVER THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO THE CHEST OF MS. EXTREME COMPLETELY TAKING HER DOWN TO THE MAT! Ms. Extreme is tumbling down to the ground as Justin wastes zero time absolutely going to town and making sure that this match is finished off for good! Justin popping up Ms. Extreme, LIFTING HER UP INTO THE AIR AND GOING FOR A BACK SUPLEX!

James Peters: But Ms. Extreme manages to flip over it just in time and land behind Justin! Justin is turned around in an instant as Ms. Extreme grabs him by his head and sends him towards the ropes with an Irish whip! But before anything can happen Justin manages to clutch onto the top rope before Ms. Extreme can do anything else! Ms. Extreme sees the issue here, RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR A BOOT TO HIS FACE TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! But Justin manages to pull down the top rope before that can happen and send Ms. Extreme over the top and tumbling down to the ringside area!

Persephone: lol she tripped.

Rich Russillo: In an instant Justin looks towards the top turnbuckle, beginning to scale up there while Ms. Extreme makes an attempt to recollect herself in the process. Ms. Extreme is up as she clutches her head before looking up to see where Justin happens to be at, BUT JUSTIN JUMPS OFF THE TOP AND THIS TIME MANAGES TO TAKE MS. EXTREME DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A SUCCESSFUL CROSSBODY!

James Peters: Justin grabbing Ms. Extreme by her head and rolling her back into the ring, Justin jumping up and entering into the ring as well before beginning to approach Ms. Extreme! BUT MS. EXTREME WITH AS MUCH ENERGY AS SHE HAS LEFT MANAGES TO LUNGE FORWARD AND CONNECT WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO HER KNEE CAP! Justin clutches at his leg as he stumbles back and is forced to fall against the ropes. Ms. Extreme quickly rolls out of the ring, BEFORE GRABBING JUSTIN BY HIS LEGS AND TRIPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!

Persephone: Also known as the Canadian Trip, which is what Ronan Malosi calls it for some odd reason but he’s weird so it’s nothing out of the ordinary.

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is right back into the ring as she grabs Justin by his head and brings him back up, SETTING HIM UP BEFORE THROWING HIM INTO THE RINGPOST SHOULDER FIRST! Now it’s Ms. Extreme that collapses down to the ground, clearly out of breath and using that attack as a moment to take a deep breath and collect herself before this match can continue on. It’s apparent that this match has taken a lot out of everyone involved, but the extraordinary part is, everyone continues to have the will to push themselves forward and keep going.

James Peters: Ms. Extreme is back up while Justin slowly begins to rise, Justin trying to fight back with gut shots to her abdomen! But Ms. Extreme connects with an axe handle to the back of Justin’s head stunning him for a good moment! Ms. Extreme continues to drag him towards the center of the ring, BEFORE PULLING HIM IN AND GOING FOR A DDT TO SPIKE HIS HEAD AGAINST THE CANVAS! BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO TURN IT AROUND AND DROP MS. EXTREME DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!

Persephone: Guys, it’s just some stupid tag titles that nobody cares about, I don’t know why you guys are really putting your whole body on the line for this. Actually, this is kind of enjoyable, keep deteriorating your body!!!

Rich Russillo: Justin is running off of pure adrenaline now, and the thing is, I don’t know if he has much left! He’s trying to collect himself but it’s apparent the fatigue is getting too much for him to handle at the moment, and Ms. Extreme seems to be hot on his tail as she begins to get herself back up to her feet. Justin stumbling back into the corner, LOOKING TO GET THE TAG TO HIS PARTNER- Oh no…

(In an instant, Myles drops off the apron before Justin’s outstretched hand can reach him. Justin falls against the ropes, squinting his eyes in disbelief for a moment, but quickly snapping out of it. He knows what’s happening, he saw this earlier in the night, and he knows especially that this is a mistake that he cannot make.)

James Peters: JUSTIN TURNING AROUND AND RUNNING TOWARDS DRAKE KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON WITH A BACK ELBOW! Myles quickly sliding into the ring and rushing towards Justin, BUT JUSTIN MANAGES TO TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A SLING BLADE BEFORE HE CAN DO ANYTHING! Justin Windgate has been marked for execution, and he’s going to make sure that he does everything in order to make sure that doesn’t happen!

Persephone: No no… it was absolutely amazing when Minerva beat the shit out of Donovan, I’d love this weed junkie to get his ass beat as well and absolutely murked.

Rich Russillo: Drake is slowly beginning to collect himself on the outside while he has the chance, clutching onto the barricade for dear life unknowing of where Justin is. BUT HE HAPPENS TO BE RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM LAUNCHING OFF THE ROPES FROM THE INSIDE AND TAKING DRAKE DOWN WITH A SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY TO THE OUTSIDE! Justin popping right back up to his feet, turning towards the ring, knowing that Myles isn’t going to stay down for long, and sliding into it-

James Peters: BUT WAIT! DRAKE CLUTCHES ONTO THE LEG OF JUSTIN AND YANKS HIM OUT OF THE RING AND BACK TO THE RINGSIDE AREA! Justin lands flat on the ringside matting like he just belly flopped into a pool while Drake grabs him by his head, AND THROWS HIM TOWARDS THE BARRICADE COMPLETELY DROPPING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! This is absolutely deplorable behavior by New Eden! The lowest of the low if you ask me!

Persephone: Alright calm down, Batman. It’s apparent that you haven’t seen New Eden before and I’m just going to shut you up before you can continue any further.

Rich Russillo: And here comes Myles who slides out of the ring and approaches Justin, before both him and Drake begin to repeatedly stomp down on the carcass of Justin Windgate! This is exactly the situation that Justin didn’t want to be in, but New Eden seems to have gotten the better of him and now, they’re seeming plan can go into execution. Drake grabbing Justin by his head and bringing him up to his feet, and look at Drake begin to yell down at Justin absolutely relentlessly! Saying if this was what he was so keen on expecting, then maybe he shouldn’t have showed up! Drake with a forearm shot to the head of Justin, TURNING HIM AROUND FOR MYLES TO TOSS HIM IN THE AIR AND ALLOW HIM TO FLOP ON THE GROUND LIKE A LIMP CORPSE!

James Peters: Oh come on! Enough is enough already! I didn’t want to see this happen in the first place no matter how many times it was written on the wall, this doesn’t mean that you don’t have to bruise and batter him more than you need to! New Eden is SICK! But what the hell can you expect by an act orchestrated by Drake King of all people?!

Persephone: Murder.

Rich Russillo: AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF FOR THE EXECUTION OF JUSTIN WINDGATE! THE SECOND COMING CONNECTS! A SIMULTANEOUSLY BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE AND A GUILLOTINE SICK KICK CONNECTS STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE SKULL OF JUSTIN COURTESY OF NEW EDEN! IF THEY WANTED TO FIND A WAY TO GET OUT OF THE TAG TEAM TURMOIL TOURNAMENT, THEN THEY JUST HAPPENED TO GET THEIR MEAL TICKET RIGHT NOW!

(Justin’s forehead is absolutely gushing out blood right now. It’s an outcome that he tried everything to make sure didn’t happen, but it’s a reality that he’s going to have to accept once he finally regains some sort of consciousness. Drake and Myles just stare down at the absolutely battered corpse of Justin before Drake grabs him and rolls him back into the ring.)

(Inside the ring, Ms. Extreme is on one knee after finding it in her to recover. She’s just staring at the left for the dead body of Justin Windgate before looking up at the members of New Eden outside the ring in response. Ms. Extreme squints her eyes in foreseen regret before reluctantly dropping down and pinning Justin’s shoulders to the mat. The referee, having to officiate the earlier tournament match, slides down into a pin to get this over with.)

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Zombie’ once again begins to blare through the speakers of the arena while Ms. Extreme pulls herself off Justin Windgate begrudgingly. She wipes off a bit of the blood that was transferred off of Justin to her before putting her hands on her hips, very annoyed at the moment. Meanwhile outside the ring, Drake King doesn’t waste any time rolling into the ring, looking to celebrate with her as the referee makes his way over with their respective Championships. Drake casually pushes the EAW World Championship away while Ms. Extreme slowly takes her Universal Women’s Championship, before the referee raises both of their hands in the air. The camera then shows Myles who enters into the ring, simply crouching down and looking at the down body of Justin, and scoffing.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, here are your winners… the team of the EAW WORLD CHAMPION: DRAKE KING!!!!!!!!!!! AND THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION: MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: Wow, I know this was something that we were supposed to expect, but goddamn… what a gruesome scene that we’ve just witnessed. It was apparent that Drake had a plan and that was put into execution tonight, in hopes of putting up the hypothetical of what if New Eden wasn’t actually fully in the tournament? Which led to Minerva and Donovan’s elimination, and of course, leads us to the now, where Drake and Myles absolutely laid waste to Justin and left him for the taking. Anything to get their way I guess.

Persephone: God it was stupid, but it was also very funny. I enjoy violence and for some reason, that’s just something that we don’t get on these weekly shows, LOOK AT THE MESS OF BLOOD THAT JUSTIN WINDGATE IS RIGHT NOW! You guys better get to checking that guy’s fucking pulse, he might be dead.

Rich Russillo: Well we also know our finals match at Wicked Games for the Tag Team Turmoil Tournament now! It’ll be the team of Jake Smith & Chris Elite going up against Drake King & Ms. Extreme, all of them fighting for the opportunity to get a Unified Tag Team Championship shot! What a thrilling finals match we’ve just had set in stone and an excellent Voltage show as per we’ve had tonight! On behalf of James Peters & Persephone, I’m Rich Russillo… signing out.

(Ms. Extreme immediately snatches her hand away from the referee and begins to take her leave, rolling out of the ring and making her way up the ramp, not really so thrilled after everything that happened in that match. Drake looks confused for a moment while Myles joins his side, Myles looks towards Drake, then towards Ms. Extreme, before shaking his head as that’s presumably the last shot seen before Voltage begins to fade out…)

James Peters: KIDS SEE GHOST! SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF MS. EXTREME DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! HOLLY ARROW IS HERE! AND SHE’S OUT FOR REVENGE!

Persephone: What the… THE SHOW ISN’T OVER YET?! GET HER THE FUCK OUT OF HERE! I WAS THIS CLOSE TO LEAVING THIS WRETCHED PLACE!

(Holly simply looks down at Ms. Extreme with a disgruntled look on her face, annoyed herself thanks to the scenes that unfolded to cap off Voltage last week. She grabs Ms. Extreme by her head, mumbling words that can’t be caught by the camera.)

Rich Russillo: HOLLY LOCKING IN THE ULTRALIGHT BEAM! THE OMOPLATA CROSSFACE IS CINCHED IN AND THAT TRIGGERS A BAFFLED DRAKE TO SLIDE OUT OF THE RING AND DASH UP THE RAMP!

(Drake rushes up to her tag partner’s rescue in hopes of catching Holly in her tracks, but Holly sees it coming, immediately releasing the hold and retreating away towards the backstage area. Drake looks to continue the chase, but stops in his tracks, realizing that checking on Ms. Extreme is much more important than exacting vengeance 😍. Drake drops down to a knee and begins to check on the Universal Women’s Champion, checking that she’s okay but the combined effects of the attack and the fatigue that she’s been through in the previous match, have her down and out for the moment. While everything is happening, Myles is seen leaning against the ropes, watching the scene unfold while Justin’s bloody body is seen behind him. The chaotic scene is the last shot before Sunday Night Voltage begins to transition elsewhere.)

( Sunday Night Voltage comes back to the present moment as the camera goes over to show James Peters standing inside the ring which has been set up with a table and a series of office chairs. James is holding a binder with the EAW and Voltage logos tagged on it as he begins to speak. )

James Peters: Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back to Sunday Night Voltage. And welcome to the official contract signing for the Unified Tag Team Championship Titles math to take place at Pain for Pride!!! Allow me to introduce to you first; The Challengers, accompanied to the ring by ARIA. Both hailing from Okinawa, Japan. Weighing in at a combined weight of 372 pounds. Ayu Megumi and Usagi Senshi; THE ICE ACES…

( ‘Pinky. Pinky.’ by The Idol formerly known as LADYBABY plays over the sound system of the arena as the two contenders make their way to the ring under the cheers of the crowd. They are accompanied by the Sacred Detective and the third member of the group ARIA who walks behind them but seems just as happy. The trio makes their way inside the ring with Ayu and Usagi seating while ARIA is standing behind the pair. )

Persephone: You know the tag team division is in bad shape when you have those two as number one contenders.

Rich Russillo: I have to respectfully disagree with you on that claim, Persephone. Ayu and Usagi worked hard to not only have a spot on the Pain for Pride card but a battle for the top prize of the tag team division.

James Peters: Ladies, welcome to tonight’s proceedings, thank you for being here with us.

Ayu Megumi: Pleasure to be here.

Usagi Sensi: Glad to be here.

James Peters: And of course your friend Aria, welcome back to Voltage.

ARIA: Thank you.

James Peters: Now any title match needs a title and it’s Champion to defend it. Thus, allow me to introduce you all to the current and reigning Unified Tag Team Champions.

( The crowd erupts in a chorus of boos as ‘People are Strange’ by The Dead South begins to play over the PA system of the arena. Solomon is sided with his beautiful wife Trixie as the trio marches toward the ring with arrogance and confidence oozing from all over. Solomon carries the Championship around his waist while Kirk has it over a shoulder. )

James Peters: From Boston, Massachusetts, and Las Vegas respectively. At a combined weight of 476 pounds. Kirk Redwood and Solomon Stane: THE OFF-BRAND AMPHETAMINES…

Persephone: What a fucking lame tag team name… No wonder the division is in the shitter.

Rich Russillo: They are the biggest surprise out of any Division this season as no one expected them to beat The Haircare Kings yet they did in spectacular fashion. Both had average seasons up to that time and the joining of their forces was what propelled them to the very top. Clearly, they are contenders for the tag team of the year this season.

Persephone: Not if they lose to the Ice Aces though.

Rich Russillo: IF they lose to the Ice Aces. Let’s go back to the ring and see what unfolds next.

( Kirk sits straight on his chair with an ice-cold glance towards his unphased opponents while Solomon Stane has his boots on the table seating as if he owned the place much to the delight of his wife who stands by his side. Ayu rolls her eyes while Usagi looks a bit annoyed but nothing else. )

James Peters: Off-Brand Amphetamines, Ice Aces, this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The contract signing confirms that the two of you will be fighting for the Unified Tag Team Championships at this year’s Pain For Pride in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada.

( The crowd cheers as Trixie takes one of the microphones available on the table. )

Trixie Stane: It will be good to be back home in Sin City, we can’t say the same about Phoenix, however.

( The fans let her know quickly what they think of her opinion of their town as she brushes off the wave of boos as if it was nothing. )

Trixie Stane: Oh Shut Up. Of all the places my darling husband and his partner would rather be right now, HERE in this dry dust ball plot of land is NOT one of them. In fact, nothing good comes from Arizona period. The SUNS sucks, the Diamondbacks are abysmal, and I won’t even talk about the Cardinals and Coyotes having to settle to relocate to a facility with LESS than five thousand seats because they can’t draw.

( The crowd boos loud and massively showing how they don’t agree. )

Trixie Stane: That’s all you can do so go ahead, boo to your little heart’s content. Nothing will alter the fact that The Off-Brand Amphetamine is going home to Las Vegas and will STAY in Vegas past Pain for Pride as … STILL … YOUR Unified Tag Team Champions. There isn’t even an argument to be had about this, truth be told it is actually astounding to see how all of you counting the trio before I are oblivious to the obvious. Can’t you see what is happening here? No? I shouldn’t be surprised really, what I am though is unimpressed and unbothered just like my husband and his partner is. I mean, look at the so-called opposition.

( She points at Ayu before looking up to ARIA. )

Trixie Stane: You are a non-factor, so shut up.

( The Sacred Detective rolls her eyes as she brings her arms together at the hips. )

Trixie Stane: I am still puzzled as to why the two of you little girls want to mix it up with Solomon and Kirk so badly. I really am questioning the logic behind this move which will bring nothing but pain and agony to the two of you and anguish for your little third wheel over there as there is nothing she will be able to do to stop the onslaught that is heading your way. Seriously, I just don’t understand how the two of you are so daft. No, you must be braindead to think facing my man and Kirk Redwood is a smart career move. The two of you will end up on your ass and maybe worse quicker than a Suns’ turnover converted into two points by the opposing team.

( Once again the crowd lets Trixie knows what they think of her jabs at their local basketball team. )

Trixie Stane: Look at the two of you, seriously, for all the work you think you have done what have you to show for it? Aches and pains and a whole lot more coming your way and you actually want more of it? That is astounding, but what puzzles me the most is to see you are trying to make this whole deal look like it is some sort of a redemption arc with the biggest payoff possible resulting in you two having the titles around your waist. Look at who is sitting in front of you girls. You have a man of superior intellect, a genius-level intelligence man like my husband, and by his side is a ruthless, unrelenting, and devastating warrior in Kirk Redwood. How can the two of you even possibly consider having a chance at victory when having this sort of opposition before you? It’s simple really: You just don’t stand a chance, you will get blown away by a force you simply have no control over and will be obliterated by.

Ayu Megumi: Who came up with the idea for the tag team?

Usagi Senshi: Let me guess, you took a random name generator off the internet?

Ayu Megumi: Or is it that you take too much of those? You know we have a wellness policy here in Elite Answers Wrestling, yes?

ARIA: Seems to me this is something worth investigating.

( The entire trio facing their looks to the contenders with a face of Are-You-Going-There? Really? Neither of them looked impressed. )

Ayu Megumi: It would be a shame if the two of you were to be stripped of the titles because you take advantage of substances, but this is not how us The Ice Aces want to take the belts away from you. There are better ways, much more satisfying ways than having management hand us the titles because you did not follow the rules. We prefer to take them away from you by force, giving you no choice but to admit defeat. You did a number on me recently, I won’t hide it you’ve got me to hurt pretty badly…

( As she says the words we can see Usagi starting to lose her cool and getting irritated, which comes to pass as Ayu moves a reassuring hand on her shoulder with a comforting nod. )

Ayu Megumi: But as you can see gentlemen, Mrs. Stane: I’m here, and I’m ready to fight. Further than that, I am ready to put my body on the line in order to leave Pain for Pride with the Championships. Because that is what one needs to do in order to make it all the way to the top. One has to endure pain and sacrifice much to have the honor to be known forever in history as a Champion and such sacrifice I am more than willing to make. You may not see it now, but you will next week I will make sure of it. You won’t have a choice but to recognize what I am able to go through and how far I am open to pushing my own limits once I raise my part of the titles over my shoulders. Pain is only part of the process, it’s part of the game and I am capable of handling it as well as dishing it. You fail to see it now, you have the option to think opposite to what I’m saying such as your right but at Pain for Pride? Once our music hits and we are declared the NEW Unified Tag Team Champions? You won’t have a choice but to recognize our greatness along with the sacrifices and the efforts we have invested in beating them away from you. It will be bliss to fight you in your own backyard Solomon, but it will be even better to kick your ass and defeat you in your own house. Pain for Pride is the perfect setting for the perfect victory for us and I can’t wait.

( She then, in a decisive manner, reaches for the contract binder and opens it up. Picking a pen off the table she scribbles her name on the line with her name written on the paper and once done she turns the document so that it is aimed toward her partner. )

Usagi Senshi: Let’s shove the pleasantries aside and bring this to the level it needs to be, Redwood, Stane, the two of you tried to take me out last week, and as you can obviously see how it didn’t work. You tried to break this team and you have failed to achieve your objective because I stand here before you ready to bring you down to hell if I have to in order to leave Pain for Pride with those Unified Tag Team Championships. You managed to push the pain upon us last week, we won’t take that away from you but what you have done only serves as fuel to motivate me to push myself in order to do what has to be done so that I can not only get payback for what you’ve done but get the ultimate revenge which can only happen if we defeat you and believe me gentlemen: I am ready. If you think you’ve scored points in this failed endeavor of yours, you have another thing coming and you’re following yourself into a false sense of security that will cost you dearly.

( Taking the same pen Ayu used to write her name on the contract, Usagi marks her own upon the contract all the while staring daggers at her opponents. She then slams the pen on the table before closing the contract, she didn’t even look at it, her gaze nowhere else than towards the men she so eagerly looks forward to getting vengeance upon. )

Solomon Stane: You are entering my house when you walk into Reliant Stadium, Las Vegas is my city. Sin City is my Domain, I hold jurisdiction over it I am its lord and master while you are only peasants a pair of tourists threading my land and are about to get severely punished for the transgression. You are walking into this match looking to strike big money but you will end up losing a whole lot more than that because as you well know: The House Always Wins. It doesn’t take a genius to see the obvious and that is the two of you don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of leaving my home with the Unified Tag Team Championships. And in the process, you will be getting through pain and suffering which you have yet to experience, not just from our previous altercations but ever since you two decided to step foot inside a ring together and consider yourself a team. Pain for Pride is not yours to win and come the event we will see it through. That is my promise to the two of you, one I will make good on tenfold and with little effort but a whole lot of enjoyment. Do you want to talk about promises, Usagi? I will throw one of my own and I know Kirk will back me up on this; I vow to end your pathetic little tag team. Pain for Pride is the last time the world will ever see The Ice Aces standing together as a pair. After we are done with you, there will be nothing left.

( Redwood grins and acknowledges the last words of his partner. With that, and with a massive smirk on his lips, Solomon picks up the binder along with a pen and marks his name upon the fine line on the contract before moving it to his partner’s side. )

Kirk Redwood: We opened the eyes of the World when we claimed these titles for ourselves in a match that no one ever expected. Not even the bookers here in Vegas thought we would leave as the winners. The shock of this victory was such that it forced a so-called ‘good’ team to basically pick up their shit and bail in frustration. The unifying of forces between myself and Solomon is only a testament to the overall quality of our work and our skill level in general. To be honest, joining up with him was the best move I’ve ever done especially after having wasted my time partnering up with Shane Gates. Stane and I went out of the gates running and it brought results no one thought possible for us. And then we confirmed our dominance by defeating a team comprising of Champions and a soon-to-be Hall of Famer. The fact that MarrKade was dysfunctional is not our problem whatsoever, our job is to win the same as every one of our opponents, and if they can’t keep it together long enough to win a match? You can bet your bottom dollar that The Off-Brand Amphetamines is going to take advantage because at the end of the day what matters is the win and nothing else.

( And with that, James Peters grabs the binder and raises it above his head before speaking. )

James Peters: AND WITH THAT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IT IS OFFICIAL!!! The contract is signed and the match is BOOKED. At Pain for Pride LIVE from the brand new Reliant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Unified Tag Team Championships will be defended by the reigning title holders The Off-Brand Amphetamines against the Ice Aces comprised of Ayu Megumi and Usagi Tenshi. DON’T MISS THIS MATCH FOLKS. In fact. DON’T MISS PAIN FOR PRIDE COMING TO YOU NEXT WEEK AND ONLY ON FREE PER VIEW!!!

( The scene ends with the Champions holding the titles over their heads and talking smack to their challengers who return the favor off-mic. The vibe is volatile but no tables are flipped, no chairs thrown around there is only the promise of war between two tag teams who want only one thing and that is absolute victory on the grandest stage of them all. )

[SCREENBAR: WICKED GAMES 2021 – MYLES & MINERVA VS. JUSTIN WINDGATE & DONOVAN DUKE; BARBED WIRE MASSACRE VII]

(As always, a recap begins to play, showing the history of the Barbed Wire Massacre. The recap starts off with Impact’s match against Rex McAllister at King of Elite 2019 for the World Heavyweight Championship. This was the first ever Barbed Wire Massacre, and in the end Impact would win. The second Barbed Wire Massacre would be between Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade at Fighting Spirit: Seoul, and Charlie Marr would defeat his former tag team partner at the event. The third Barbed Wire Massacre would occur at Wicked Games 2019, where Charlie competed in the match once again to successfully defend his EAW Championship against Ms. Extreme. Charlie would also compete in the fourth Barbed Wire Massacre at Pain for Pride XIII, and this time he’d lose to his longtime enemy, Malcolm Jones.)

(The fifth Barbed Wire Massacre was between Drake King and TLA, and with the help of Malcolm Jones, TLA would defeat his enemy. The sixth Barbed Wire Massacre would be between Minerva and her own enemy just this year, Raven Roberts. Raven would win the match, meanwhile this would not be the final Barbed Wire Massacre Minerva competes in this year. The camera shows a recap of last week’s Voltage, where Captain Charisma makes it official that at Wicked Games, Myles and Minerva would face Donovan Duke and Justin Windgate. If New Eden wins, they get control of Voltage for a month. If they lose, New Eden is to disband. Forever.)

(As Wicked Games fades back to the ring, the ring has been set up as it usually would be for a Barbed Wire Massacre. Weapons have been laid out for both teams to use, and the ropes have been replaced by barbed wire which is also wrapped with razor wire.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is a BARBED WIRE MASSACRE MATCH!!!! The only way to win is by pinfall, submission or execution!

(‘High All The Time’ by 50 Cent hits, and the crowd explodes as Justin Windgate begins to make his way out to the stage. He’s not alone though, as Donovan Duke walks out by his side, and Captain Charisma follows behind, causing the cheers to become even louder. Justin and Donovan talk amongst themselves for a quick moment, but as they slowly begin to make their way down to the ring, the focus on their faces is undeniable. They both seem to understand just how much is really on the line in this match, as they continue to make their way down to the ring, not at all intimidated by the redecoration that’s gone down for the Barbed Wire Massacre.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…. Accompanied by the Voltage commissioner Captain Charisma…. At a combined weight of 437 pounds….. JUUUSSSTTINNNN WIIIIIINNDDDGAAAAAATTEE AND DOOOONNOOOVVAAAANNNN DDUUUUUUUUUUUUUKKEE!!!!!!!

James Peters: I hope these two know what they’re getting themselves into. They did something big earlier when they got revenge by costing Drake King and Ms. Extreme the win, and New Eden won’t be taking that lightly from the look of things.

Rich Russillo: Right, but I don’t think Justin and Donovan would’ve done something so bold if they didn’t know what they were doing.

Persephone: They better know what they’re doing. The last thing we need is for New Eden to make this show even worse than it already is.

James Peters: For once I agree with you, for the most part. Voltage is a fantastic show, and we can’t let New Eden ruin that.

Persephone: I already lost Rex McAllister. I can’t lose the ability to watch a bunch of idiots bash each other’s brains out too.

(‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer)’ by Shiro SAGISU hits, and the crowd explodes once again, but this time the reaction isn’t positive. Loud boos roar throughout the arena as Myles, Minerva and Drake King all walk out to the stage, dragging their Championships and briefcases along. None of them look happy and that’s made perfectly clear as their eyes immediately stare towards Justin Windgate and Donovan Duke, who look right back at them. As the trio makes their way down to the ring, they do notice Captain Charisma, and they just shake their heads as Myles and Minerva begin to enter the ring, and Drake stays out at ringside, just like Captain Charisma. The two teams already inside of the ring wait at opposite sides of the ring, seemingly barely able to contain themselves.)

Bella Braxton: And their opponents… Accompanied by the EAW Champion, Drake King… a combined weight of 337 pounds…. MYLES AND THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION MINERVA, NEWWWWWWW EEEDDDDEEENNNNN!!!!!!

James Peters: Captain Charisma is out here for one reason, and that reason is Drake King. I’m sure Drake would love to interfere with this match as much as he can, but with the Voltage commissioner out here, I don’t expect Drake to try anything.

Rich Russillo: Good. Captain Charisma is no fan of New Eden, and seeing how close he came to straight up stripping them of all their titles and briefcases last week, I’m sure Captain Charisma wouldn’t hesitate to punish Drake for ruining this match.

Persephone: If I were him I would’ve just fired them all already, but I guess that’s just me 🤷‍♀️.

James Peters: Well, if they lose this match they may not be fired, but it’ll still be the last time we hear the name “New Eden”. It looks like this match is about to be under way, and you can see the looks on Myles and Minerva’s faces, they want this win and they want it badly.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: AND THIS MATCH IS ON! THE MATCH FOR THE FATE OF VOLTAGE IS ON, AND IMMEDIATELY BOTH TEAMS IMMEDIATELY START SWINGING AT EACH OTHER! BOTH NEW EDEN AND THE TEAM OF DONOVAN DUKE AND JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST CHARGED AT EACH OTHER, AND NOW THEY’RE JUST TRADING LEFTS AND RIGHTS! MINERVA’S GOING AT IT WITH DONOVAN DUKE, MEANWHILE MYLES IS FIGHTING WITH JUSTIN WINDGATE! This is a huge match with Voltage’s future on the line, and it definitely did not take long at all for both of the teams competing in this match to start swinging!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE TACKLES MYLES AND TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT, AND BOTH ELITISTS GO ROLLING OUT OF THE RING! Justin Windgate is in control now as he starts laying into Myles with punches directed to the face, BUT MYLES MANAGES TO PUSH JUSTIN OFF OF HIM BEFORE FINDING HIS WAY BACK TO HIS FEET! Myles now grabbing Justin Windgate, AND MYLES ATTEMPTS TO SEND JUSTIN INTO THE BARRICADE, BUT JUSTIN JUMPS ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE BEFORE DIVING OFF OF IT, TAKING MYLES OUT WITH A MOONSAULT! The crowd is loving what they’re seeing, but right now I don’t think Justin cares, he’s way more concerned about winning this!

Persephone: Inside of the ring Donovan Duke and Minerva are going at it, and Minerva’s getting the upper hand as she managed to get Donovan into the corner. Minerva’s grabbing Donovan, AND SHE TRIES TO RAKE DONOVAN’S FACE AGAINST THE BARBED WIRE ROPES- but Donovan Duke is able to stop himself :noah: before hitting Minerva with an elbow. He had to grab onto the barbed wire to do that, but it would’ve been way cooler seeing Donovan’s face being rubbed against the barbed wire and watching it tear his face open.

James Peters: Donovan Duke now charging towards Minerva, AND HE GOES FOR A LARIAT BUT MINERVA DUCKS UNDER IT! Donovan Duke now stopping himself in front of the “ropes” before turning and charging at Minerva, AND MINERVA EXPECTED DONOVAN TO GO HIGH, BUT INSTEAD DONOVAN SLIDES DOWN AND GRABS MINERVA’S LEG! DONOVAN IS ATTEMPTING AN ANKLE LOCK EARLY ON, BUT MINERVA IS ABLE TO QUICKLY TURN HERSELF ONTO HER BACK! MINERVA NOW USING BOTH FEET TO PUSH DONOVAN AWAY, AND THAT SENDS DONOVAN BACK FIRST INTO THE BARBED WIRE ROPES! Donovan drops down to the mat, and now Minerva quickly goes to take advantage as she grabs Donovan, pulling him towards the bottom barbed wire rope!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST TRIED TO SLIDE INTO THE RING TO HELP DONOVAN, BUT MYLES QUICKLY GRABS JUSTIN BY THE LEG BEFORE PULLING HIM BACK OUT OF THE RING! Myles now with a knee to the midsection before pulling Justin into a front facelock, AND NOW MYLES LIFTS JUSTIN UP INTO A SUPLEX POSITION, BEFORE SENDING JUSTIN BACK FIRST INTO THE BARBED WIRE ROPES, LETTING JUSTIN GO AS HE DROPS HEAD FIRST ONTO THE RING APRON! Justin Windgate is down, AND NOW LOOK AT WHAT MINERVA’S DOING!

Persephone: :yikes: Minerva’s pressing her knee onto the back of Donovan Duke’s neck, and she’s forcing him to bite down onto the barbed wire rope while pulling it towards him. That’s disgusting, but that’s why I’m glad this match is a thing :drakelike:.

James Peters: Captain Charisma doesn’t like what he’s seeing whatsoever, and I can’t blame him! I can’t blame him one bit for not being a fan of what’s going on here! New Eden’s seemingly taken control of this match, and remember. If New Eden wins, they get control of this show for an entire month!

Rich Russillo: I’m scared to know what these three may be able to do in a month, but at this rate we might have to live in a world where New Eden is in control! Myles has picked up a kendo stick covered in barbed wire, AND HE HITS JUSTIN WINDGATE IN THE BACK WITH IT JUST AS HE WAS GETTING BACK UP! Justin is grabbing onto the ring apron, trying to get himself back up once again, BUT THERE’S ANOTHER SHOT WITH THE KENDO STICK BY MYLES! This is not looking good, and Drake seems to be loving what’s going on right now!

Persephone: Donovan Duke is slowly powering himself off the ground and he finally gets the barbed wire rope out of his mouth, but Minerva just drops Donovan with an elbow to the back of the head. That was nasty, but not enough. They need to start bringing out the weapons like Justin and Myles. Minerva now pulling Donovan up, AND SHE LIFTS DONOVAN UP IN A SUPLEX POSITION BEFORE DROPPING HIM ON THE BARBED WIRE!

James Peters: NO! DONOVAN DUKE MANAGED TO JUMP OUT OF MINERVA’S GRASP BEFORE LANDING ON THE APRON, AND DONOVAN PULLS MINERVA’S HEAD DOWN, PULLING HER THROAT RIGHT INTO THE TOP ROPE, MADE OF BARBED WIRE AND RAZOR WIRE! What a counter by Donovan Duke, who once again had to grab onto the barbed wire ropes just to save himself from some
major damage!

Rich Russillo: Myles is still in control of Justin Windgate though, and he lifts Justin up by his hair from behind, BEFORE FORCING THE BARBED WIRE KENDO STICK IN JUSTIN’S MOUTH AND GRABBING BOTH ENDS OF IT! Myles clearly has something in mind here, and it can’t be good! MYLES JUMPS UP FOR A KENDO STICK ASSISTED BACKSTABBER!!!

James Peters: BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE IS ABLE TO QUICKLY BACKPEDAL INTO THE BARRICADE, SLAMMING MYLES BACK FIRST INTO IT! Justin Windgate just avoided disaster right there, and just like that things might’ve turned around for Justin and Donovan! Justin Windgate looks right at Drake King for a moment, and you can see that Drake isn’t happy at all with how things are turning out! Now it’s Justin Windgate looking under the ring for a weapon, meanwhile Donovan Duke seems to have found what he wanted, as he pulls out…. Oh God.

Persephone: :blessed: The barbed wire bomb tables!!!

Rich Russillo: We saw this back at Pain for Pride, Drake knows that weapon very well! When this was used against Malcolm, it was able to bring Drake the victory and end Malcolm’s career! Donovan Duke seems to know what he’s doing. If he gets what he wants, this barbed wire table laced with explosives might just end New Eden’s time as a stable as well!

Persephone: I’d LOVE to see it. The less I have to see of these three as a stable, the better. The idea of them having control of Voltage already makes me sick.

James Peters: Donovan Duke slides the table inside of the ring before looking back under the ring, and Donovan takes out a barbed wire laced steel chair before re-entering the ring! Justin Windgate on the other hand looks like he hasn’t found what he wanted yet, BUT MYLES PULLS JUSTIN OUT FROM UNDER THE RING-

Rich Russillo: JUST FOR JUSTIN WINDGATE TO HIT MYLES WITH A GLASS BONG!!! IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR THE GLASS BONG TO COME OUT, AND I GUESS JUSTIN DID FIND WHAT HE WANTED AFTER ALL! Justin now getting back up after pushing the bong into Myles’ midsection, AND NOW JUSTIN SWINGS IT AT MYLES’ HEAD!

James Peters: AND HE MISSES! MYLES DUCKED UNDER THE SWING, ONLY BEFORE SHOVING JUSTIN FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST!

Persephone: I think you guys should be a bit more concerned about what’s going on inside of the ring. Donovan Duke saw that Minerva was holding her throat after having it slammed into the barbed wire ropes, so Donovan managed to drop her with a chair shot before wrapping the chair around her throat. I don’t know what Donovan has in mind, but I think he’s about to kill Minerva, so I’m all for it!

James Peters: Donovan Duke now climbing up to the top rope as Minerva’s right where Donovan wants her, AND DONOVAN DIVES OFF OF THE TOP ROPE, WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP AIMED AT THE BARBED WIRE CHAIR WRAPPED AROUND MINERVA’S THROAT!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! MINERVA GOT OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE SHE COULD GET SERIOUSLY HURT! DONOVAN DUKE ROLLS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND TURNS AROUND- BUT AS SOON AS HE TURNS AROUND HE’S HIT WITH THE DEVIL’S TOUCH, SENDING DONOVAN ROLLING OUT OF THE RING! Minerva now taking that chair off of her head, and I think Donovan might’ve just accidentally given Minerva a weapon!

James Peters: Minerva now rolling out of the ring, meanwhile Myles attempts to slam Justin’s face into the ring apron, but Justin is able to stop himself before nailing Myles in the nose with a back elbow, and Justin follows that up by slamming Myles’ face into the apron! Myles stumbling back up, AND JUSTIN WINDGATE FOLLOWS THAT BY SWINGING THE GLASS BONG INTO MYLES’ FACE, SHATTERING IT ON IMPACT AND DROPPING THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE HOLDER ONTO THE MAT!

Persephone: WOOOOOOOOO!!!! FINALLY!!!! That’s what I’ve been waiting to see! These four have been leaving a bunch of cuts and scars with the barbed wire and that’s cool and all, but that shot with the glass bong looks like it’s about to have Myles in a pool of his own blood! That bong opened him up pretty badly.

Rich Russillo: Meanwhile Minerva’s rolled out of the ring, and is wrapping that barbed wire chair around Donovan’s neck, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE RUNS UP THE STEEL STEPS BEFORE JUMPING OFF OF THEM, DIVING OVER DONOVAN DUKE AND LANDING ON MINERVA, TAKING HER OUT WITH A DIVING HURRICANRANA! Justin Windgate helping his partner out, and now it looks like this might become a two versus one with Myles still hurting from that shot with the glass bong!

James Peters: Donovan Duke gets back up as he takes off the chair from his head, and now Justin Windgate holds Minerva up, ALLOWING DONOVAN DUKE TO DRIVE THE STEEL CHAIR INTO MINERVA’S MIDSECTION! Now it’s Donovan Duke once again wrapping that chair around Minerva’s throat as Justin holds onto her, AND NOW THE TWO ELITISTS SEND MINERVA FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST, DRIVING THE BARBED WIRE STEEL CHAIR INTO HER THROAT AND DROPPING THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! After everything New Eden did to these two, I think saying that the fans are happy to see this is an understatement!

Rich Russillo: Of course it is! Both men are looking back under the ring, and Donovan Duke grabs a barbed wire wrapped wooden 2 by 4! Justin Windgate pulls a wooden 2 by 4 out himself, but this one isn’t laced with barbed wire. Instead, this one has a nail near the edge of it! The sharp end of the nail is just poking out of that 2 by 4, and whatever Justin has planned with it can’t be good whatsoever!

Persephone: I mean, you guys are the ones that said New Eden deserves what’s coming to them or whatever. I for one am all for watching Justin and Donovan murder these two.

James Peters: Donovan Duke walking up to Minerva, BUT MINERVA HEADBUTTS DONOVAN, CAUSING DONOVAN TO STUMBLE BACK- ONLY BEFORE SWINGING THE BARBED WIRE 2 BY 4 INTO HER MIDSECTION! DONOVAN DUKE HITTING MINERVA WITH THE 2 BY 4 ONCE AGAIN, AND THERE’S ANOTHER SHOT WITH IT AS JUSTIN WINDGATE WALKS OVER! Now Donovan Duke is the one to hold up Minerva, and this can’t be good! I think New Eden is about to meet some serious consequences of their actions, AS JUSTIN SWINGS HIS OWN 2 BY 4 AT-

Rich Russillo: NO! MINERVA JUMPS UP, DROPKICKING JUSTIN WINDGATE! MINERVA NOW DROPPING TO HER KNEES, TAKING DONOVAN DUKE OVER HER! Donovan Duke quickly gets back to his feet-

James Peters: BUT MINERVA GRABS THE STEEL CHAIR BEFORE THROWING IT AT THE SIDE OF DONOVAN DUKE’S HEAD! Minerva quickly finding a way out of the situation she was in, and now she gets back to her feet before grabbing Donovan, and sending him over the barricade! Minerva now turning towards Justin Windgate, and-

Persephone: :mjlol2: AND JUSTIN WINDGATE HITS MINERVA IN THE SIDE OF HER STOMACH WITH HIS 2 BY 4, STABBING HER WITH THE NAIL! Minerva drops to the mat, and Justin Windgate pulls the 2 by 4 out of her before sending her back into the ring! Luckily it looks like Justin isn’t finished with the 2 by 4 as he re-enters the ring. Hearing Minerva’s screams of pain was soo refreshing after usually having to hear her in the ring boring us with some drawn out promo with New Eden.

James Peters: Justin Windgate now re-entering the ring, and-

(As soon as Justin enters the ring, the Cash in the Vault briefcase flies at him, and Justin just manages to catch it before it could hit him.)

Justin Windgate: :comeagain:

James Peters: BICYCLE KNEE BY MYLES, SENDING THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE RIGHT INTO JUSTIN WINDGATE’S FACE!! Justin Windgate was about to further attack Minerva, but Myles was able to distract him by throwing that briefcase at him, before using it as a weapon by kneeing it right into Justin’s face! Myles’ face is still a mess thanks to that bong, but he was still able to stop Minerva from receiving any further damage!

Rich Russillo: Yeah, but now it looks like he’s not about to stop at just helping Minerva out! Minerva slowly making her way up to her feet, and Myles hands her the 2 by 4, ALLOWING MINERVA TO SLAM THE NAIL RIGHT INTO JUSTIN’S MIDSECTION, BEFORE PULLING IT OUT! NOW IT’S JUSTIN WINDGATE THAT’S IN PAIN AS HE IMMEDIATELY GRABS HIS STOMACH, BUT THAT JUST OPENS MINERVA UP TO HIT JUSTIN WINDGATE IN THE BACK, STABBING HIM ONCE AGAIN WITH THE NAIL!

Persephone: I really don’t want to see New Eden make
this show even more boring than a J. Cole album, but if this is the last time we’ll see any real violence on a Voltage show, I’m glad we’re going out with a match like this.

James Peters: Myles now grabs Justin Windgate before leaning him up against the barbed wire ropes, and now Myles is grabbing them before tying Justin’s arms in them! Justin is tied up in the barbed wire, and now Myles backs up, BEFORE CHARGING IN AND DELIVERING A BICYCLE KNEE, RIGHT TO JUSTIN’S NOSE!

Rich Russillo: That might have broken Justin’s nose! Blood is running down Justin’s nose, BUT THAT’S THE LEAST OF JUSTIN’S PROBLEMS, AS MINERVA ONCE AGAIN SWINGS THAT 2 BY 4 INTO JUSTIN’S MIDSECTION, ONCE AGAIN STABBING HIM! NOW MYLES PULL’S JUSTIN’S FACE RIGHT INTO ANOTHER KNEE, BEFORE ALLOWING MINERVA TO GET ANOTHER SHOT IN WITH THAT 2 BY 4! I DON’T KNOW IF I’VE HEARD BOOS ANY LOUDER THAN THIS BEFORE, AS MINERVA AND MYLES ARE JUST LAYING WASTE TO JUSTIN WINDGATE!

Persephone: I really admire just how much pain Justin’s willing to take. He really does make a great punching bag :wow:.

James Peters: Justin Windgate really is being beaten to a bloody pulp, and now Myles slides out of the ring, and it looks like he’s going for the steel steps-

Rich Russillo: BUT DONOVAN DUKE DIVES OFF OF THE BARRICADE, TAKING MYLES OUT WITH A DIVING CLOTHESLINE!! Minerva threw Donovan over the barricade earlier to take him out of the match, but now Donovan is back up and he immediately grabs that barbed wire laced steel chair as he sees Minerva sliding out of the ring to help Myles! DONOVAN WITH A CHAIR SHOT TO THE FACE OF MINERVA, AND THAT TAKES DOWN THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!

James Peters: Donovan Duke quickly slides back into the ring, and finally he untangles Justin Windgate from the barbed wire ropes, and grabs Justin before he could drop to the mat! Justin took a very bad beating, and I’m really glad Donovan was able to come to his aid before it could get any worse! Both Myles and Minerva are slowly making it back up to their feet, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW RUNS TO THE ROPES BEFORE JUMPING OVER THEM, TAKING OUT BOTH MEMBERS OF NEW EDEN WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!

Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke slides out of the ring before looking for another weapon, and Donovan pulls a small bag out from under the ring! Donovan sliding back into the ring now, and he pours everything that’s in the bag out in the middle of the ring, revealing a bunch of thumbtacks! Justin Windgate now sending Minerva back into the ring, ALLOWING DONOVAN DUKE TO PICK HER UP, DROPPING HER HEAD FIRST ONTO THE THUMBTACKS WITH “DRAWING DEAD”!!!! THE MICHINOKU DRIVER CONNECTS ON TOP OF THE THUMBTACKS, AND NOW THERE’S THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH, WHICH MIGHT JUST BE ENOUGH TO PUT THIS ONE AWAY!

OOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTHHHHRREEEEEEEEEEEE-

Persephone: Nope, Minerva managed to kick out just before three! I want to hate this because it gives New Eden another chance to win, but not long ago these four were literally tearing the flesh off of each other’s bodies, so I’d rather keep seeing that.

James Peters: Donovan Duke slowly gets back to
his feet as Myles is rolled back into the ring by Justin, and Donovan turns his focus towards the explosive barbed wire table that was brought into the match near the beginning of it! Donovan Duke now setting up that table, meanwhile Justin Windgate slides back into the ring before trying to pick Myles up!

Rich Russillo: MYLES DOESN’T MAKE IT EASY FOR HIM THOUGH, AS HE PUNCHES AWAY AT JUSTIN’S MIDSECTION, RIGHT WHERE ONE OF THE STAB WOUNDS FROM THE 2 BY 4 WAS! MYLES NOW LIFTS JUSTIN WINDGATE, BEFORE THROWING HIM INTO THE EXPLOSIVE TABLE!!!

James Peters: WAIT NO! DONOVAN DUKE JUST CAUGHT JUSTIN BEFORE HE COULD GO THROUGH THE TABLE! DONOVAN QUICKLY LETTING GO OF JUSTIN, BUT THAT DISTRACTION OPENED MYLES UP TO DELIVER A HUGE BOOT TO THE SIDE OF DONOVAN DUKE’S HEAD! MYLES GRABBING JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW, AND HE SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!

Persephone: Myles now is doing what I wish people would do in every match, and going to find another weapon :blessed:!

Rich Russillo: Myles just brought out a few light tubes, and now he slides back into the ring before SHATTERING ONE OF THEM ACROSS DONOVAN DUKE’S BACK! Myles now holding the end of the light tube which is still in tact, AND HE STABS DONOVAN WITH THE BROKEN EDGE OF IT! MYLES IS ON TOP OF DONOVAN DUKE, AND NOW DONOVAN IS FORCED TO USE HIS ARMS TO TRY AND COVER HIMSELF AS MYLES STABS HIM WITH THE BROKEN LIGHT TUBE OVER AND OVER!

James Peters: DONOVAN MANAGES TO PUSH MYLES OFF OF HIM BEFORE GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, AND NOW MYLES CHARGES TOWARDS DONOVAN- BUT DONOVAN DELIVERS A DROP TOE HOLD, SENDING MYLES RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE BARBED WIRE ROPE! Donovan Duke having to take a moment to recover from what Myles just did, BUT HE PICKS UP ONE OF THE LIGHT TUBES BEFORE SMASHING IT ACROSS MYLES’ BACK, AND IT LOOKS LIKE DONOVAN HAS THE CHANCE TO GET SOME PAYBACK, AS HE RAISES THE BROKEN END OF THE LIGHT TUBE BEFORE-

Rich Russillo: NO! MINERVA JUST PULLED THE BROKEN LIGHT TUBE OUT OF DONOVAN DUKE’S HANDS! DONOVAN TURNS AROUND, AND MINERVA TRIES TO STAB DONOVAN IN THE SHOULDER WITH THE PIECE, BUT DONOVAN JUST BARELY MANAGES TO GRAB MINERVA’S HANDS! DONOVAN STOPPING HIMSELF FROM RECEIVING YET ANOTHER STAB WOUND, BUT NOW MINERVA DELIVERS A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION, BEFORE GOING TO TRY AND STAB DONOVAN-

Persephone: Nope. Unfortunately Justin Windgate managed to stop Minerva with a super kick, just before she could stab Donovan’s brains out.

James Peters: Justin Windgate now grabbing Minerva, AND HE GOES FOR A MODIFIED STANDING VERSION OF THE RUN IT UP!!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT WAIT A SECOND!! MINERVA’S HOLDING ONTO JUSTIN BEFORE HE COULD GET ALL THE WAY UP AND FLIP OVER HER, AND NOW SHE RUSHES TOWARDS THE CORNER BEFORE THROWING HIM OVER THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, SENDING JUSTIN WINDGATE CRASHING ONTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! THAT WAS NOT A GOOD LANDING FOR JUSTIN AT ALL, WHO JUST CRASH LANDED ONTO ALL OF THE STEEL STEPS!!

James Peters: DONOVAN DUKE IS STILL HERE THOUGH, AND HE GRABS MINERVA BEFORE GOING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX-

Rich Russillo: WHICH DOESN’T CONNECT, AS MINERVA LANDS A BACK ELBOW TO DONOVAN’S JAW, AND LOOK! MYLES JUST LIFTED DONOVAN UP INTO A CANADIAN RACK, AND NOW MINERVA DELIVERS THE DEVIL’S TOUCH TO DONOVAN’S FACE, ALL WHILE MYLES DROPS DONOVAN WITH THE WRATH OF PANDORA, RIGHT ONTO THE LEFTOVER THUMBTACKS!!! THESE TWO CALL THAT PANDORA’S KISS, AND THAT MIGHT BE THE KISS OF DEATH FOR VOLTAGE! MYLES NOW WITH THE COVER ON DONOVAN DUKE TO PUT THIS ONE AWAY!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: WHAT!?!? DONOVAN DUKE GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!!! DONOVAN DUKE KEEPS THE MATCH ALIVE FOR HIM AND JUSTIN!!!

Persephone: For him and Justin? :mjlol: More like for all of Voltage. I genuinely don’t think there’s a single person on the planet that wants to see New Eden take control.

James Peters: Neither Myles nor Minerva look too pleased to see that Donovan Duke is still in this, and now both Elitists slide back out of the ring, before looking for some more weapons! Myles pulls out a roll of barbed wire, and Minerva- WAIT! LOOK!

(The camera cuts to Drake King, who’s digging under the ring for something. Captain Charisma quickly walks over to Drake, but is stopped by..)

Rich Russillo: I should’ve known that branding iron would’ve come into play eventually! Drake just pulled out the branding iron from under the ring! Neither Captain Charisma nor Drake are supposed to get involved with the match, but Drake isn’t interfering, he’s handing the branding iron to Minerva! Captain Charisma’s annoyed by Drake doing anything at all, and it looks like Drake and the commissioner are sharing a few words with each other, but that might not be what’s important right now!

Persephone: Of course it’s not. Myles and Minerva just re-entered the ring, and I genuinely think they’re about to torture Donovan.

James Peters: Myles pulls Donovan Duke up into a seated position, BEFORE WRAPPING THE BARBED WIRE AROUND HIS THROAT! MYLES IS CHOKING DONOVAN DUKE OUT USING THE BARBED WIRE, AND NOW HERE COMES MINERVA, PRESSING THE BRANDING IRON AGAINST DONOVAN DUKE’S STOMACH!! DONOVAN’S DESPERATELY TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF NEW EDEN’S GRASP AS HE SCREAMS IN PAIN, BUT I GENUINELY DON’T KNOW HOW HE’S SUPPOSED TO GET OUT OF THIS! DONOVAN DUKE’S BEING CHOKED OUT WITH BARBED WIRE AND BURNED AT THE SAME TIME, AND I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG DONOVAN WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE THIS!

Rich Russillo: Minerva temporarily pulling the branding iron away from Donovan’s stomach, BUT ONLY SO SHE COULD SWING IT AND HIT DONOVAN IN THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD WITH IT! At this point I don’t think Donovan has much left in him! Donovan Duke might just be moments away from passing out, and the brutality we’re seeing from New Eden right now is about to give them control of Voltage for an entire month! This just can’t happen! Donovan’s still trying to fight out of their grasp, but his fight is slowly getting weaker and weaker! I think Donovan’s about to-

James Peters: JUSTIN WINDGATE GRABS MINERVA BY HER LEGS BEFORE PULLING HER OUTSIDE OF THE RING! JUSTIN WINDGATE QUICKLY SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AFTER GETTING MINERVA OUT, AND HE JUMPS OVER TO MYLES BEFORE STABBING HIM WITH ONE OF THE SHARDS LEFT FROM THE GLASS BONG!!! JUSTIN JUST STABBED MYLES AT THE TOP OF HIS SHOULDER, AND THAT FORCES MYLES TO LET GO OF DONOVAN DUKE!! Minerva quickly slides back into the ring, AND SHE GOES FOR A LARIAT BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE DUCKS UNDER IT, BEFORE GRABBING MINERVA AND JUMPING UP!

Rich Russillo: RUN IT UP!!! JUSTIN CONNECTS WITH THE MODIFIED VERSION OF THE RUN IT UP, BUT HE DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER!! JUSTIN WINDGATE CHOOSES NOT TO GO FOR THE COVER, AND IT’S BECAUSE OF WHAT MINERVA HAD IN HER HANDS! Justin Windgate picks up that branding iron, and he looks right over at Drake King, BEFORE SLAMMING IT INTO MINERVA’S FACE! Myles is trying to use the turnbuckles to get up, BUT HE ISN’T SAFE FROM THE BRANDING IRON EITHER, AS JUSTIN PRESSED IT AGAINST HIS SIDE BEFORE SWINGING IT AT HIS MIDSECTION, DROPPING THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE HOLDER TO THE MAT!

Persephone: Drake is pissed, probably because these two already cost him and Ms. Extreme earlier, and now his own weapon is about to cost New Eden the chance to run Voltage :mjlol:.

James Peters: Justin Windgate now forcing Myles’ mouth open, BEFORE SHOVING THE BRANDING IRON INTO HIS MOUTH! WE’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE! THIS IS SOMETHING DRAKE KING HAS DONE IN THE PAST, AND I’M NOT SURE IF YOU ALL REMEMBER HOW DRAKE FOLLOWED THAT UP, BUT I THINK JUSTIN WINDGATE IS ABOUT TO GIVE A REMINDER AS HE SLOWLY BACKS UP, BEFORE BEGINNING TO CHARGE AT MYLES, WHO STILL HAS THE BRANDING IRON IN HIS MOUTH!

Rich Russillo: CURB STOMP BY JUSTIN WINDGATE!!!

James Peters: VICTORIA!!!! MYLES JUST POPPED JUSTIN UP AS SOON AS HE GOT HIS FOOT ON THE BACK OF MYLES’ HEAD, AND JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST GOT HIT WITH THE POP UP KNEE STRIKE! VICTORIA CONNECTS, AND NOW BOTH ELITISTS DROP TO THE MAT AS MYLES DESPERATELY PULLS THE BRANDING IRON OUT OF HIS MOUTH!!

Persephone: I guess New Eden managed to dodge a bullet, but that’s a real shame. If Justin actually landed that stomp, I’m pretty sure Myles’ head wouldn’t be in one piece right now.

Rich Russillo: Myles is slowly starting to sit back up now that he got the branding iron out of his mouth, and if his face wasn’t already messed up enough, there’s so much blood pouring out of Myles’ mouth! This match has already taken a huge toll on all four Elitists-

James Peters: AND DONOVAN DUKE IS LOOKING TO MAKE THINGS WORSE, AS HE SMASHES ONE OF THE FINAL LIGHT TUBES INSIDE OF THE RING ACROSS THE SIDE OF MYLES’ HEAD! Myles goes rolling out of the ring, and now Donovan Duke follows behind!

Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke now grabbing Myles by the legs, AND HE SWINGS MYLES’ HEAD RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! DONOVAN USUALLY DOES HIS “GAMBLER’S ROULETTE” SWING INSIDE OF THE RING, BUT INSTEAD HE DECIDED TO SWING MYLES HEAD FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! Donovan now pulling Myles away from the steps, BEFORE SWINGING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE! Donovan finally lets go of Myles, but only because Donovan seems to have something else in mind for this match! Donovan goes and picks up that barbed wire kendo stick from earlier, and I’m scared to see what he has in mind!

James Peters: Donovan Duke pulls Myles up from behind before pulling the barbed wire kendo stick against his throat, AND NOW DONOVAN DUKE DELIVERS THE BACKSTABBER, THE SAME MOVE MYLES ATTEMPTED ON JUSTIN WINDGATE EARLIER, AND LOOK AT THAT! THE KENDO STICK JUST BROKE IN HALF AGAINST MYLES’ THROAT, AND I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE HOW PAINFUL THAT HAD TO BE! Donovan Duke now re-entering the ring, and it looks like he’s got his eyes on that explosive barbed wire wrapped table, the same one that was set up way earlier in this match! Somehow these two teams have managed to avoid going through this table, and I can see why they’d want to avoid it. Going through that table would absolutely end this match, no questions asked!

Persephone: Well it looks like Donovan’s about to try and put Minerva through it, and I gotta say this is turning out to be an embarrassing night for New Eden. It’s a good thing they’re not gonna be a team anymore after tonight. I don’t know how they’d be able to show their faces after ANOTHER free-per-view where all three of them lose.

Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke now grabbing Minerva in a front facelock, AND HE TRIES TO LIFT MINERVA INTO A SUPLEX POSITION, BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO KEEP HERSELF DOWN BEFORE STARTING TO PUNCH AWAY AT DONOVAN DUKE’S MIDSECTION! MINERVA REPEATEDLY PUNCHING AT DONOVAN’S MIDSECTION, AND WITH ALL THOSE BURN WOUNDS THERE’S NO OTHER OPTION FOR DONOVAN BUT TO LET GO OF MINERVA! Minerva now grabbing Donovan, AND MINERVA LIFTS DONOVAN UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION IN FRONT OF THE TABLE!

James Peters: BUT NOW IT’S DONOVAN DUKE THAT’S PUNCHING AWAY AT MINERVA’S FACE! DONOVAN DUKE WITH THESE PUNCHES CAUSING MINERVA TO STUMBLE BACK, AND NOW MINERVA FINALLY LETS GO OF DONOVAN! DONOVAN DUKE NOW GRABS THE ROLL OF BARBED WIRE, AND HE QUICKLY SLIPS BEHIND MINERVA BEFORE UNRAVELING THE ROLL OF BARBED WIRE AND PULLING IT ONTO HER THROAT! DONOVAN DUKE IS CHOKING MINERVA OUT NOW WITH THE BARBED WIRE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GETTING SOME PAYBACK FOR WHAT WENT DOWN MOMENTS AGO!

Rich Russillo: YEAH, BUT THAT PAYBACK IS VERY SHORT LIVED AS MINERVA BACKPEDALS INTO THE BARBED WIRE ROPES, CAUSING BOTH HERSELF AND DONOVAN TO TUMBLE THROUGH THEM AND FALL OUT OF THE RING! Minerva managed to free herself from Donovan’s grasp, but that wasn’t a very pretty fall!

Persephone: Duh. Nothing in this match has been pretty. That’s the whole point of this being a Barbed Wire Massacre! I for one am loving how this match is turning out. All four competitors are down and out, and they’re all covered in blood. They’re only like one step away from having all their guts spilled across the ring, and that’s how every match around here needs to be. The worst thing these New Eden idiots are doing right now in their goal to take over Voltage is trying to get rid of all that, even if it’s only for a month.

James Peters: Both Donovan Duke and Minerva are slowly getting back to their feet, AND MINERVA HITS DONOVAN DUKE WITH A FOREARM, BUT IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG FOR DONOVAN TO SEND ONE IN RETURN! Both of these Elitists can barely stand right now, but even that’s a step up from Myles and Justin, who for the most part are still laid out inside of the ring. Minerva hits Donovan Duke with another elbow, and Donovan Duke is nearly taken off his feet completely, but Donovan manages to land another big forearm strike! Now it’s Minerva stumbling back, and she’s having to use the ring apron just to stay on her feet-

Rich Russillo: I DON’T THINK THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA, BECAUSE JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST RAN AND DELIVERED A SLIDING DROPKICK UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE, SENDING MINERVA CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! Justin Windgate managed to use whatever energy he had left to pop back up to his feet when he saw the opportunity, and because of that he and Donovan just got the upper hand against New Eden! Justin Windgate is slowly rolling out of the ring to join Donovan, and things are not looking good for New Eden!

James Peters: Minerva slowly uses the barricade to try and pull herself up to her feet, AND SHE’S MET WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION BY JUSTIN WINDGATE, FOLLOWED BY A FOREARM BY DONOVAN DUKE! JUSTIN WINDGATE AND DONOVAN DUKE ARE WORKING TOGETHER TO TRY AND TAKE DOWN MINERVA, AND NOW THIS ISN’T A- WAIT WHAT THE HELL!?

Rich Russillo: MYLES JUST USED THE STEEL STEPS AND THREW THEM AT JUSTIN AND DONOVAN! MYLES IS BARELY STANDING, BUT BE JUST USED THOSE STEEL STEPS TO DROP BOTH DONOVAN DUKE AND JUSTIN WINDGATE! Myles seems to have something in mind too!

Persephone: Minerva is pulling Donovan Duke up, and that allows Myles to grab the steel steps and slam them right into Donovan’s face! Kinda surprised Myles didn’t accidentally throw them over Donovan’s head since he’s so short, but whatever. Whatever control Donovan and Justin had over this match not long ago seems to be gone now.

James Peters: Now Minerva is pulling up Justin Windgate as Myles picks back up the steel steps, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE MANAGES TO LAND AN ELBOW TO MINERVA’S STOMACH! MYLES QUICKLY GOES TO HIT JUSTIN WITH THE STEPS, BUT JUSTIN DUCKS UNDER THEM, AND NOW JUSTIN GRABS MYLES BEFORE RAMMING HIM INTO THE RING POST!

Rich Russillo: Myles is down, and now Justin turns around- RIGHT INTO A RIGHT HAND BY MINERVA! JUSTIN STUMBLES BACK, BUT ONLY BEFORE HITTING MINERVA WITH A FOREARM! JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW GRABBING MINERVA, AND HE SENDS HER RIGHT INTO THE CORNER OF OUR ANNOUNCERS TABLE! MINERVA’S MIDSECTION WAS SENT RIGHT INTO THE CORNER OF OUR TABLE, AND NOW JUSTIN WINDGATE IS STARTING TO CLEAR OUR TABLE! JUSTIN HAS SOMETHING BIG IN MIND AND THIS ISN’T GOOD AT ALL FOR NEW EDEN! I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS HE’S THINKING ABOUT, BUT IT CAN’T BE GOOD!

James Peters: OH MY GOD! MYLES GRABBED THE 2 BY 4 WITH THE SHARP NAIL WHILE JUSTIN WAS DEALING WITH MINERVA, AND MYLES JUST SWUNG IT AT JUSTIN! JUSTIN ONLY JUST BARELY GOT OUT THE WAY, AND THAT NAIL WENT RIGHT THROUGH OUR TABLE, THAT’S HOW SHARP IT IS!

Persephone: More importantly, that’s how hard Myles swung the 2 by 4. I think he just legitimately tried to murder Justin :mjlol:.

James Peters: Whatever the case may be Justin managed to save himself from it, AND NOW HE KICKS MYLES IN THE MIDSECTION BEFORE GRABBING HIM IN A FRONT FACELOCK! JUSTIN NOW JUMPING UP ONTO OUR TABLE, BEFORE JUMPING OFF OF IT AND DELIVERING A TORNADO DDT!

Rich Russillo: Justin Windgate now pulling the 2 by 4 out of the table, BUT HE DOESN’T GET MUCH TIME TO DO ANYTHING, AS MINERVA GRABS JUSTIN AND SENDS HIM RIGHT INTO THE TIMEKEEPERS AREA!! Justin Windgate was just sent into the timekeepers area, and that might’ve just saved Myles and herself from even more pain as Justin had that 2 by 4 in his hand! Minerva now going towards Justin, and she-

Persephone: :mjlol: JUSTIN JUST SWUNG THE 2 BY 4 AND THE NAIL HIT MINERVA IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Unfortunately it was more in the cheek area instead of going right through her skull, but Minerva’s still in tons of pain anyway, so this works for me.

James Peters: Justin just pulled the 2 by 4 off of Minerva’s face, and there’s just a hole in the side of Minerva’s face, full of blood pouring out! Minerva’s clearly in so much pain, AND NOW JUSTIN JUMPS ONTO THE BARRICADE, BEFORE JUMPING ONTO MINERVA AND TAKING HER OUT WITH A CROSSBODY! WHAT A MOVE BY JUSTIN WINDGATE!

Rich Russillo: Justin Windgate sees Myles slowly trying to get back up, AND JUSTIN DELIVERS A NASTY KNEE TO THE STOMACH, BEFORE LAYING MYLES OUT ON OUR TABLE! Myles is laid out on top of our table, AND NOW LOOK BEHIND JUSTIN! DONOVAN DUKE IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE! DONOVAN DUKE FOUND THE TIME TO RECOVER FROM GETTING HIT WITH THE STEEL STEPS, AND NOW HE’S ABOUT TO TRY AND PUT THIS MATCH AWAY! Drake King looks like he wants to do something about this, but Captain Charisma’s right there and he’s keeping a close eye on Drake, leaving him with no other choice but to let this play out!

James Peters: STACK THE DECK!!!! DONOVAN DUKE TAKES MYLES OUT WITH A PHOENIX SPLASH THROUGH OUR ANNOUNCERS TABLE!!!! THE COMMENTARY TABLE JUST CRUMBLED UNDERNEATH MYLES, AS MYLES WAS JUST FLATTENED BY THAT PHOENIX SPLASH!!! THAT’S IT, THAT’S GOTTA BE IT! MYLES IS DONE FOR AND MINERVA’S BEEN TAKEN OUT EARLIER! THIS MATCH HAS TO BE COMING TO AN END SOON!

Persephone: Soon? More like right now. Donovan may be only like 3 feet tall and maybe a hundred pounds at most, but that phoenix splash looked like it hurt and these two wasted no time sending Myles back into the ring!

Rich Russillo: That’s right! Myles is back in the ring, and so is Donovan Duke, who goes for the cover to end this match AND New Eden!!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

James Peters: NO WAY!!!! NO WAY MYLES JUST GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!!! HOW IS THIS MATCH NOT OVER YET!?!? THAT SHOULD BE IT! THAT SHOULD BE THE END OF THE MATCH! VOLTAGE SHOULD STILL BE IN SAFE HANDS, BUT SOMEHOW MYLES JUST GOT THE SHOULDER UP, AND MADE SURE THAT NEW EDEN STILL HAS A CHANCE OF TAKING VOLTAGE OVER!

Rich Russillo: This is far from the first time that we’ve seen Myles show some unbelievable resilience! Just back at Clash of Kingdoms Myles became only the third man in HISTORY to kick out of Mr. DEDEDE’s North Star, and now tonight Myles managed to survive the Stack the Deck through the commentary table! New Eden is capable of some amazing things inside of the ring and that can’t be denied, it’s just a shame that they’re using their talents to try and take control of Voltage! Somehow this match is still on, and that’s bad news!

Persephone: I’m all for the violence that these two teams are bringing in this match, but it seriously makes me sick knowing that if New Eden wins, I’m gonna have to somehow go without all of this. No Rexy, no stipulation matches, Voltage is going to be ruined if these three manage to take control.

James Peters: Justin Windgate grabs that 2 by 4 before looking to re-enter the ring, BUT BEFORE HE COULD RE-ENTER THE RING, MINERVA GRABS HIM BY THE LEG! JUSTIN TRIES TO SHAKE HER OFF OF HIM, BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO PULL JUSTIN OUT OF THE RING BEFORE DELIVERING A HEADBUTT, CAUSING JUSTIN TO STUMBLE BACK! JUSTIN NOW SWINGING THE 2 BY 4, BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO CATCH IT BEFORE DRIVING THE END OF IT INTO JUSTIN’S MIDSECTION! Minerva now taking the 2 by 4, AND SHE GOES TO HIT JUSTIN IN THE HEAD WITH IT-

Rich Russillo: BUT DONOVAN DUKE MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING JUST IN TIME, STOPPING MINERVA FROM SERIOUSLY INJURING JUSTIN WINDGATE, OR WORSE! MINERVA TURNS AROUND TOWARDS DONOVAN DUKE, AND SHE DELIVERS A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! JUSTIN WINDGATE GOES FOR AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, BUT MINERVA PULLS THE 2 BY 4 THAT DONOVAN WAS ALSO HOLDING WHILE DUCKING DOWN, CAUSING JUSTIN TO ACCIDENTALLY HIT DONOVAN IN THE FACE WITH THE ELBOW!

James Peters: Minerva now taking the 2 by 4, AND SHE GOES TO HIT JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH IT, BUT NOW IT’S JUSTIN THAT CATCHES IT, AND SHE KICKS MINERVA IN THE MIDSECTION BEFORE SENDING HER BACK INTO THE RING! Justin quickly helps Donovan Duke back up after accidentally dropping him, and now Justin slides back into the ring before-

Persephone: :francis: Before getting hit in the face with the Devil’s Touch.

Rich Russillo: MINERVA PRETTY MUCH KICKED JUSTIN’S HEAD OFF WITH THE DEVIL’S TOUCH, AND NOW DONOVAN DUKE QUICKLY TRIES TO ENTER THE RING, BUT MINERVA IS FAST ENOUGH TO PUSH DONOVAN OFF OF THE APRON BEFORE GOING FOR THE COVER! MINERVA’S ABOUT TO PICK UP THE WIN FOR NEW EDEN, AND GAIN CONTROL OVER VOLTAGE IN THE PROCESS!!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Persephone: THANK GOD! Donovan Duke just barely managed to slide back into the ring and pull Minerva back out of the ring just before the ref could reach three! Donovan just saved Voltage from somehow becoming even worse than it already is! I guess he’s not that useless after all.

James Peters: Minerva doesn’t look too happy right now, and while I can see why she’d be upset, I can’t say I feel bad for her or the rest of New Eden whatsoever! After all of the horrible things they’ve done, and after the things they already said they have planned for Voltage, there’s no way they deserve to win this match. I usually don’t take sides in these matches, but I think I’m speaking for everyone when I say that we don’t want to see New Eden win.

Rich Russillo: Minerva’s getting back to her feet, and she grabs Donovan Duke, BEFORE SENDING HIM OVER THE- WAIT NO! DONOVAN DUKE MANAGED TO TURN IT AROUND, AND THIS TIME MINERVA’S THE ONE SENT OVER THE BARRICADE! Donovan Duke now climbing up onto the barricade, BUT MINERVA GRABS DONOVAN’S LEGS AND PULLS THEM OUT FROM UNDER HIM, DROPPING DONOVAN BACK FIRST ONTO THE BARRICADE AND DROPPING HIM OFF OF THE BARRICADE! Both Elitists are over the barricade now, and it looks like we have a fight in the crowd coming up as Minerva grabs Donovan Duke, looking to take control!

James Peters: WAIT, ONE OF THE FANS JUST THREW THEIR DRINK AT MINERVA!! MINERVA WAS TAKING DONOVAN DUKE THROUGH THE CROWD, AND ONE OF THE FANS JUST THREW THEIR DRINK RIGHT IN MINERVA’S FACE, WHICH WAS ALREADY COVERED IN TONS OF SCARS AND CUTS! ONE OF THE FANS NOW GIVING DONOVAN DUKE THEIR CHAIR, AND DONOVAN TAKES IT BEFORE HITTING MINERVA IN THE BACK WITH IT, TAKING MINERVA FURTHER THROUGH THE CROWD! IF IT WASN’T OBVIOUS WHOSE SIDE THE CROWD IS ON HERE TONIGHT, THIS SHOULD TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Persephone: While those two are fighting inside of the crowd Justin and Myles are both finding their ways back to their feet, but Myles manages to get back up first, which clearly isn’t too good for Justin… Or for the rest of us. Myles just took Justin down with a double leg takedown, and now Myles is just beating the hell outta Justin with tons of elbows and punches to the face. This match was always personal or whatever especially after what Justin and Donovan pulled earlier, but I’m still a bit surprised by some of the things these four have done to each other in this match, in a good way.

James Peters: I think Myles might have just knocked a tooth out of Justin Windgate’s mouth! Myles is relentless right now, and I don’t like this one bit! Myles just grabbed some of the thumbtacks in the ring, and he just shoved them into Justin’s mouth! Myles now backing up, allowing Justin to start to sit up a bit, BEFORE CHARING IN, GOING FOR A RUNNING KNEE!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST BARELY DIVES OUT OF THE WAY! JUSTIN COUGHING OUT THOSE BLOODY THUMBTACKS, BUT HE QUICKLY HAS TO GET BACK UP AS MYLES STOPS AND TURNS TOWARDS THEM! MYLES CHARGES AT JUSTIN AND GOES FOR A LARIAT, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE DUCKS UNDER IT!

James Peters: SITOUT FACEBUSTER BY JUSTIN WINDGATE, DROPPING MYLES FACE FIRST ONTO THE REMAINING THUMBTACKS!!! MYLES IS DOWN, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE CAN’T CAPITALIZE, NEEDING SOME TIME TO TRY AND RECOVER!

Rich Russillo: It looks like Donovan and Minerva are coming back from the crowd area as Donovan has a hold of Minerva, AND DONOVAN RUNS WITH MINERVA LOOKING TO SEND HER INTO THE BARRICADE-

James Peters: BUT MINERVA TURNS IT AROUND, AND DONOVAN DUKE GOES CRASHING THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!!

Persephone: Right now Minerva is the only person standing, but even then she’s barely on her feet after that fight in the crowd.

Rich Russillo: Minerva now rolls Donovan Duke back into the ring before following behind-

James Peters: BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE HITS MINERVA WITH A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN! JUSTIN WINDGATE HITS THE SUPERKICK, AND HE FOLLOWS THIS UP WITH THE CLASSIC ENDING!!! THE CLASSIC ENDING CONNECTS ON MINERVA, AND THAT’S IT! JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH THE COVER ON MINERVA, AND THAT HAS TO BE THE END OF THIS MATCH!!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

TTTTTHHHHRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: MYLES PULLS JUSTIN WINDGATE OFF OF MINERVA!!! MYLES JUST SAVED THE MATCH FOR NEW EDEN, PULLING JUSTIN WINDGATE OFF OF MINERVA! That superkick and Classic Ending really came out of nowhere, but I see this match still isn’t over!

Persephone: Justin Windgate now is laying into Myles with a bunch of lefts and rights, and now he’s holding Myles, as Donovan Duke slowly gets back up and starts to make his way up to the top rope.

James Peters: Myles is trying to break free of Justin’s grasp, meanwhile Donovan Duke is still in pain, but he somehow makes it up to the top rope! DONOVAN DUKE IS UP TOP, AND NOW HE GOES FOR-

Rich Russillo: NO! MYLES BREAKS FREE OF JUSTIN WINDGATE’S GRASP, AND HE RUSHES OVER TO THE CORNER BEFORE SHOVING DONOVAN DUKE OFF OF THE TOP ROPE, SENDING DONOVAN CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! THE BACK OF DONOVAN’S HEAD HIT THE BARRICADE, AND I THINK THAT JUST KNOCKED DONOVAN OUT! DONOVAN DUKE IS OUT!!!!

James Peters: YEAH, BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE DOESN’T GIVE MYLES ANY TIME TO ACT! JUSTIN GRABS MYLES FROM BEHIND, BUT MYLES LANDS A SHOT TO THE FACE WITH A BACK ELBOW! Myles now grabbing the Cash in the Vault briefcase that he used earlier, AND HE SWINGS IT AT JUSTIN WINDGATE!

Rich Russillo: IT DOESN’T CONNECT THOUGH! JUSTIN DUCKS UNDER IT, BEFORE HITTING MYLES WITH A BICYCLE KNEE OF HIS OWN, CAUSING MYLES TO BACKPEDAL AND FALL ONTO THE BARBED WIRE EXPLOSIVE TABLE! Justin Windgate now walking over to Myles, and he punches him a few times to make sure he stays down! Justin Windgate has Myles knocked out, and now he’s starting to climb up to the top rope himself! The crowd is cheering as loud as they can, they can see that this match might just be on the verge of ending!

Persephone: Not only is it gonna end, but I think Myles is about to die!

James Peters: JUSTIN WINDGATE IS ON THE TOP ROPE WHILE MYLES IS ON THE TABLE! MINERVA’S KNOCKED OUT! DONOVAN DUKE IS KNOCKED OUT! IT’S COME DOWN TO JUSTIN AND MYLES, AND I THINK JUSTIN WINDGATE IS ABOUT TO SAVE-

James Peters: :comeagain:

Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL!?!?

(All of a sudden, before Justin could jump off of the top turnbuckle, someone slides into the ring.)

James Peters: WHAT!?!?

Persephone: Wow.

Rich Russillo: IT’S MS. EXTREME!!! MS. EXTREME JUST ATTACKED JUSTIN WINDGATE BEFORE HE COULD MAKE IT OFF OF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! MYLES FOUND ENOUGH TIME TO ROLL OFF OF THE TABLE, MEANWHILE MS. EXTREME JUST STOPPED JUSTIN WINDGATE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S NOT FINISHED YET!!!

(BOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!)

James Peters: MS. EXTREME JUST THREW JUSTIN WINDGATE OFF OF THE TOP ROPE AND THROUGH THE TABLE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST WENT THROUGH THE BARBED WIRE TABLE, ARMED WITH EXPLOSIVES, AND IT’S ALL THANKS TO MS. EXTREME!!!!

Persephone: :mjlol2: HAHAHAAHAHAHAHA JUSTIN JUST DIED!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST WENT THROUGH THAT TABLE, AND NOW-

Persephone: :comeagain: Wait a second.

(Slowly, Myles manages to pull himself on top of Justin Windgate’s lifeless body as the crowd boos as loud as they possibly can.)

OOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here are your winners…. MYLES AND THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION MINERVA…. NEEEWWWWWWW EEEEEEDDDDEEEENNNNNN!!!!!!!!!

(‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer)’ hits, and for a moment nobody knows how to respond. The crowd is stunned for a while before beginning to boo as loud as possible, and as the camera cuts to Captain Charisma, he’s in genuine disbelief. All four Elitists competing in the match are bloody, bruised and battered, and while Drake King looks shocked for a moment, a huge grin forms on his face.)

Persephone: ….. You’ve got to be kidding me.

James Peters: …..

Rich Russillo: …..

James Peters: New Eden just won control of Voltage..

Rich Russillo: And it’s because of Ms. Extreme.

Persephone: Just when I thought I couldn’t hate this show more :will:.

James Peters: I genuinely don’t know what’s gotten into Ms. Extreme. I know what Justin and Donovan did earlier, and I’m sure she’s probably still pissed about it, but she already has a Championship in her hands. She’s the Universal Women’s Championship, and if you ask me this match was beyond an opportunity to become a double Champion. She just gave Voltage to New Eden.

Rich Russillo: I would love to praise the match we just saw, and how far these four went to try and get the victory, but to say that ending left a sour taste in my mouth would be an understatement.

(Captain Charisma doesn’t move. He’s beyond disappointed, and he just watches as Drake King enters the ring, helping up both Myles and Minerva.)

Persephone: Welp. Hope New Eden got what they wanted. This is going to be a horrible month.

(As their entrance music begins to play, Drake King raises Myles and Minerva’s hands, smiles appearing on all three of their faces. Afterwards, Drake walks up to Ms. Extreme, looking to embrace in their victory.)

James Peters: :lupe: Ms. Extreme just pushed Drake away.

(Ms. Extreme rolls out of the ring and begins walking up the ramp, and you can still see the anger on her face as she takes her leave. Drake looks a bit confused by her actions, as does New Eden, and basically everyone else in the arena.)

Rich Russillo: I don’t know what to say. Ms. Extreme clearly isn’t happy, but after what she did, no one will be happy for the next month.

James Peters: No one.. But-

Persephone: No, no no. Don’t say it. We get it already. New Eden runs Voltage now.

James Peters: Well, it looks like that’s all for Wicked Games tonight. I’m James Peters, and as always with me is Rich Russillo and Persephone Tsitsipas. We’ll see you all next Sunday night… Where it looks like Voltage is going to be a much different show.

(‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer)’ continues to play, and as Donovan Duke begins to stir, he can’t help but look just as disappointed as the few people who’ve gotten over their shock. Captain Charisma still doesn’t seem to know how to respond to what just happened, and Justin Windgate has yet to move after going through the exploding barbed wire table. As the scene comes to a close, the only Elitists left standing tall, is New Eden.)

(The camera cuts back to ringside as “Legacy” by Eminem starts playing as Ruler enters the arena to a mixed reaction from the crowd. He takes a moment to look around with a determined but not very amused look on his face before he heads to ring.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome RULER!

James Peters: Here comes Ruler making his way to the ring. After seeing Dynasty and Showdown and hearing what others had to say, it should be no surprise that Ruler will want his chance to fight back.

Persephone: How about no? The last thing we need to hear is another moron talking about why he deserves to win a title at Pain for Pride. It’s not like we haven’t heard enough of that in the last month and shit. Damn, I can’t wait until they all just shut up.

Rich Russillo: I would kind of like to hear what Ruler has to say. He won a Number One Contender’s Match a number of weeks back to earn a match with the New Breed Champion, Alex Myers. Not much later, Aurora Monroe is added to the match to turn it into a triple threat match.

James Peters: Ruler has been here a short time and he is certainly making a name for himself. His stock will hit the stratosphere if he is able to win this Triple Threat match at Pain for Pride. It’s the biggest match of his EAW career so far, but right now let

(Ruler enters the ring and Bella Braxton hands him a microphone as his entrance music cuts off. He waits for the mixed reaction of the crowd to subside before he begins to speak.)

Ruler: Let’s go ahead and talk about the elephant in the room right here and right now. Let’s talk about what happened last week. Aurora Monroe decided to stick her nose where it didn’t belong and chose to interfere in my match.

Ruler: While I should be completely pissed off about what she did last week, quite frankly, I really could give two shits less. Seriously, I really don’t give a fuck about that stunt she pulled.

Ruler: At the end of the day, I am really not going to lose a wink of sleep over a loss to Ryan Wilson of all people. Besides, I have MUCH more important matters to focus on right now. Especially when it involves both Aurora Monroe and the New Breed Champion, Alex Myers.

Ruler: I heard everything that both Alex and Aurora had to say on their separate brands the last few days. They each staked their claims and told the world that they are going to make statements that the world will never forget. Do you know what I think about that?

(Ruler takes a moment to look around the crowd before answering the question.)

Ruler: They are both just too little too late to this little party here. What they have been doing recently, I have been doing the entire time I have been in Elite Answers Wrestling. Week in and week out, I have not been just telling the world what exactly I can do. I have been SHOWING the world what I can do.

Ruler: You see, if having to beat both Aurora and Alex is what I have to do to make sure that I win the New Breed Championship and wear it around my waist, then that is exactly what I am going to do.

Ruler: That’s because it really doesn’t matter to me if I have to face one opponent or if I have to face two of them, the end goal is exactly the same for me. My end goal is that even through all of this pain and all of this struggling I’ve gone through, I am dead set on having my Pain for Pride moment. And absolutely NOBODY is going to take that away from me.

(After a brief second of silence, Ruler goes to speak again. Before he gets a chance, he is cut off by “Voices” by Motionless in White playing throughout the arena. Moments later, the New Breed Champion Alex Myers enters the arena with loud cheers from the crowd as they head to the ring.)

James Peters: Here is the person in question. The New Breed Champion is here on Voltage and I don’t believe they are going to take anything their challengers are saying lying down.

Persephone: Why the hell are they here? Can’t they just go back to their coffin or something until well… FOREVER! We have enough weirdos on this show, we don’t need another.

Rich Russillo: Alex has a right to be here. It’s their title that’s on the line at Pain for Pride. They aren’t going to take the words of a challenger lightly

(Alex grabs a microphone from the timekeeper’s table before they roll under the bottom rope to get into the ring. They stand back up and stand face to face with Ruler as their entrance music cuts off. He lets the cheers die down before speaking.)

Alex Myers: Now hold on there a second, Ruler. If anybody knows about dreams never being a guaranteed reality, I’m at the top of the list. What is guaranteed are facts. And the fact of the matter is that I have been working harder than you or Aurora Monroe put together.

Alex Myers: For either of you two to say that you are going to be winning at Pain for Pride and taking this Championship away from me is absolutely DISGUSTING!

(Alex adjusts the New Breed Championship on their shoulder before continuing.)

Alex Myers: Let’s face it! I have your number, Ruler. That’s something you can not dispute. As for Aurora Monroe? She won’t be a problem either. Hell, I will face everybody on the entire EAW roster if it means that I can go forward with my agenda. Because I am….

(Now it’s Alex’s turn to get cut off as “Streets” (Instrumental) by Doja Cat starts playing and Aurora Monroe enters the arena to a mixed reaction from the crowd.)

Rich Russillo: It looks like the gang’s all here for this match. Here comes Aurora Monroe to the ring.

Persephone: I’m not going to be like that horny pervert Gavin Kirkland on Showdown and sing her praises. She’s on Voltage and I think she is just another dumb bitch. Go back to Showdown where you belong.

James Peters: Aurora Monroe was entered into this match a little later on and she is certainly the wildcard in this match. She can definitely change the tide of the match and she is hoping it is in her favor.

(Aurora enters the ring and joins the other two participants in this match in the proverbial standoff. Aurora pulls a microphone from her back pocket and now it’s her turn to talk.)

Aurora Monroe: Let me make one thing perfectly clear. You two are making a HUGE mistake by simply casting me aside like trash cans you two live in. Now that I am in the match, you two and your little love story are just going to have to take a break for a bit.

Aurora Monroe: You two should be aware that I am by far one of the most talented people on the entire roster. Do you have any doubts about that? You want to question that? Do it and see what happens! If anybody is leaving Pain for Pride with the New Breed Title, it’s going to be me!

(The three start to argue back and forth in the middle of the ring, each saying that they are going to win the match and the title. The arguing goes on for a few moments longer before….)

Rich Russillo: AURORA MONROE WITH A RIGHT HAND IN THE FACE OF THE NEW BREED CHAMPION! ALEX IS STAGGERED BACK AND HERE COMES RULER! THINGS HAVE BROKEN DOWN IN PHOENIX!

Persephone: Are you surprised by that? These morons are all a bunch of idiots and hotheads. Of course, they were going to start fighting at some point. Good grief. They should just destroy each other so there will be one less match and three fewer idiots.

James Peters: Aurora is just taking it to the New Breed Champion, BUT ALEX MYERS IS FIGHTING BACK! AURORA IS GETTING OVERPOWERED AND DOUBLE-TEAMED! ALEX MYERS WITH A HEADBUTT SENDING AURORA RIGHT INTO RULER–

Rich Russillo: AND RULER JUST PLANTED AURORA WITH THE WILL OF NICHOLAS! RULER GOT ALL OF THAT EVENFLOW DDT! RULER LOOKING DOWN AT AURORA, BUT THAT GIVES ALEX MYERS A CHANCE TO HIT RULER WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND RULER IS DOWN!

James Peters: ALEX MYERS IS JUST UNLOAD ON ONE OF THEIR CHALLENGERS AND THEY ARE NOT LETTING UP! RULER IS DOWN AND ALEX GOES TO THE SECOND ROPE! ALEX LOOKING FOR DOCTOR SLEEPS! DIVING KNEE DROP ON THE WAY BUT RULER MOVES AT THE LAST SECOND AND ALEX FINDS NOTHING BUT CANVAS! RULER IS BACK TO HIS FEET!

Rich Russillo: RULER WITH A KICK RIGHT TO THE INJURED RIBS OF ALEX MYERS! WHAT A SHOT! AGAIN AND AGAIN, WITH THOSE KICKS AND ALEX WAS TAKEN OFF HIS GAME WITH THAT SHOT! RULER COMES BACK WITH YET ANOTHER KICK TO THE RIBS! ALEX DOUBLED OVER AND RULER LIFTS HIM UP AND HE DROPS ALEX WITH THE MADE IN HEAVEN!

James Peters: THE NEW BREED CHAMPION WAS JUST SPIKED ON THEIR HEAD WITH THAT SPIKE PILEDRIVER! WILL THIS BE THE SAME SIGHT AT PAIN FOR PRIDE WITH THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE? WILL RULER BRING THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP BACK TO VOLTAGE? TRIPLE THREAT MATCH AT PAIN FOR PRIDE! THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD!

(The final shot shows Ruler holding up the New Breed Championship high in the air as “Legacy” starts playing once again. Both Alex and Aurora are still not moving after their brawl and Ruler has a successful smirk on his face and the camera cuts elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: ROAD TO REDEMPTION 2021 – DONOVAN DUKE VS. RONAN MALOSI; 24/7 CONTRACT ON THE LINE]

( The camera fades to the ring, where Bella Braxton is seen holding a microphone. )

Bella Braxton: Ladies And Gentlemen! The following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Bella Braxton: AND IT IS FOR THE OWNERSHIP OF THE 24/7 CONTRAAAAACT!!

(The lights go out in the arena and as the camera travels up the entrance as the sound of cards shuffling echoes throughout the arena. As the camera makes its way up the ramp, a repeated pattern of card suits lights the way. When they reach the top of the ramp, the fans finally hear a voice.)

(THE HOUSE ALWAYS WINS!)

(Then ‘The Outsiders’ by Eric Church starts to play as numerous people dressed in standard casino card dealer’s outfits and wearing cowboy hats make their way to the stage riding motorcycles. When the song reaches the chorus, they all rev their engines as Donovan Duke makes his way to the stage riding his own custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle wearing a leather jacket and his lucky cowboy hat. He revs his own engine trying to get the crowd motivated.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! Making his way to the ring. From Stillwater, Oklahoma. Weighing 212 pounds. He is “THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN” AND THE 24/7 CONTRACT HOLDER; DONOVAN DUKE!

(Donovan rides his motorcycle down the ramp and does a few laps around the ring, slapping hands with the fans at ringside before returning to the bottom of the ramp. After he gets off the motorcycle, he pulls a gun out of his jacket pocket and points it to the sky. He fires it and fireworks are fired from the gun.)

(Seconds later, dollar bills start falling from the sky. There aren’t just one-dollar bill, there are many other dollar amounts falling from the sky. Donovan looks at the camera and gives a wink.)

Donovan Duke: (Off-Mic) I’m the real deal. This isn’t that cheap shit Ronan had created. You won’t see him doing something like this. Worth every penny.

(As the money continues falling, Donovan takes off the jacket and reveals a black and blood red singlet for the event as he enters the ring and motions to the crowd.)

James Peters: Now THAT… Is what I call an entrance! This is mighty surprising coming from the Gentlemen but obviously, he’s been going all out for this special occasion!

Rich Russillo: Donovan has a chance tonight to continue to roll with the 24/7 Championship in his possession tonight he who so far has not made good on the possibilities that come with that privilege. The last one who waited too long ended up losing the contract. We all remember Jon Kelton’s defeat against Justin Windgate who soon after won the Interwire Championship.

Persephone: We remember he lost it to Ronan after too. Speaking of which!

( The lights of the arena all going to focus on the ramp with heavy spots enlightening it along with the stage and the jumbotron. We hear sirens as a line of 14 police motorbikes are driving into view from the right side of the entrance and drive to part themselves on each side of the ramp the whole length of it between the ring and the stage area. Shortly after the motorcade is stopped an abyssal black Cadillac SUV drives up the ramp and stops just before the line of a police escort. We see Ronan’s Dogs of War hanging off the side of the SUV as it drives slowly while ‘Mo Money’ by Ben McLusky begins playing through the sound system of Lucas Oil Stadium. The Dogs of War gets off the vehicle and one of them opens a side door through which emerges Ronan. The former Interwire Champion moves forth and is followed two steps behind by his crew. )

Bella Braxton: AAAAAAAAAND HIS OPPONENT!! From Cape Town, South Africa but living it large in Palm Springs, Florida! Weighing in at 285 pounds! He Is The Million Dollar Megastar: RONAAAAAAAAAAAAN MA-LO-SIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!

( We see Ronan look down at the dollar bills that are everywhere from Duke’s entrance and pick one up, he observes it before scoffing and shredding the currently in three and discards it as if it was trash! )

Persephone: He just shredded a high-value banknote like it meant nothing that bald fuck!!

James Peters: I don’t think Ronan cares about Duke’s money when he can get the 24/7 contract which is invaluable should he win the match! This is a high-stakes battle that is about to take place and the two of them heading to this match have shown they are ready to keep the thing but also do what they must to get it!

Rich Russillo: It’s been interesting to follow the two of them interact with each other and it all comes to a boiling point tonight as the two are battling for the right to own the 24/7 contract! Will Donovan keep it? Or will Ronan become its the new owner? These two men will not go easy on each other in order to get their hands on it!

Persephone: ALRIGHT REF! SAY THE THING!

Referee: RING THE BELL!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

James Peters: And Here We GO!! This match is officially underway!! Both men are circling each other in the center of the ring measuring and poised for a strike! Who will engage first! Ronan is motioning a Hold On sign with a hand to Donovan as he then turns to face the official and takes out a big fat wad of clipped bills and presents it to the official.

Ronan Malosi: (Off-Mic) If you do things my way, Imma make you a rich man!

Referee: (Off-Mic) I don’t want your stinking money, Ronan! Do your job and FIGHT!

Ronan Malosi: (Off-Mic) What? Do you refuse the easiest payday of your miserable entry-level job’s life? Pff! Screw you then.

Rich Russillo: Finally this match can start pro-

Persephone: Ah you’ve got to be fucking kidding me!!

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

James Peters: Ronan Malosi ducks a clinch attempt by Donovan and rolls out of the ring! The fans are booing as Ronan points to the side of his head with a finger.

Ronan Malosi: You don’t get to decide when we start this match! I DO! Because unlike you I’m filthy RICH!

Persephone: Makes you wonder if he really wants the 24/7 Contract doesn’t it?

James Peters: Ronan is messing around outside the ring taunting the crowd and actually ignoring his opponent for the time being! Duke ends up sliding out of the ring trying to get to Malosi but Ronan’s Dogs of War bars his way! The pair stands stall between Duke and their boss under the boos of the crowd! Duke is annoyed as Malosi is laughing while the official begins to count them both!

ONE!

TWO!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!!

Rich Russillo: Donovan goes back in the ring first! Looking down to Ronan who doesn’t seem in a rush!

Five!!!!!

Six!!!!!!

Seven!!!!!!!

Persephone: Haul Ass Dumb Ass!!

Eight!!!!!!!!

NINE!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: And Ronan at the last possible second dashes inside the ring sliding under the bottom rope! The action can now resume!

Persephone: Or should we say begin! They didn’t even touch each other yet!

Rich Russillo: Donovan goes for Clinch! Ronan shows the power of a man who is much taller than his opponent roughing him around with a harsh push forcing Duke to fall back but he rolls with agility and ends with a knee down.

Rich Russillo: Ronan rolls his eyes and dashes towards Donovan who ducks and throws Ronan backward into a German Suplex! Ronan gets up, he gets greeted by a Belly to Belly Suplex! Then a Japanese arm drag! And a good old clothesline! Donovan is on a roll now as he throws Ronan into the ropes but Malosi tackles him down with a shoulder block sending Duke to the ground hard.

James Peters: Ronan dashes forward and into a power slam as Duke uses his opponent’s momentum against him! DOWN GOES HAPPY MALOSI! Duke tries to go for a suplex but gets an elbow to the face for his efforts! He goes down to a knee! Malosi picks him up and shoves him into a corner followed by a series of body strikes and a few well-placed kicks before Ronan barks at the crowd ordering them to shut up which of course they respond to with a chorus of boos. Ronan drives a knee to the midsection of the 24/7 contract holder who drops to his knees again. Ronan goes to pick him up once more BUTt Duke takes him down!! It doesn’t last as Ronan shoves him off.

Rich Russillo: Duke to the ropes, Ronan dashes forth and lands outside the ring as Duke lowers the ropes! Smart move by the Duke as Ronan lands to his feet and against the railing! Malosi quickly runs back in ONLY to get dropkicked by Donovan! The move is sending Ronan back out of the ring! Duke to his feet now looking at the crowd and then behind him before dashing into the ropes bouncing towards Ronan and LEAP INTO A SUICIDE DIVE FROM INSIDE THE RING AND LANDING STRAIGHT OVER RONAN!! Duke is in control now as he gets quickly vertical.

James Peters: Donovan backs off a little then runs in! Running hurricanrana on Malosi who just barely got up to his feet! Ronan is getting slowly up, leaning against the barricade, Duke takes a few long steps back getting ready to dash forward! He is measuring his opponent! Off he goes charging in! SIDEWALK SLAM! RONAN STOPPED DONOVAN SHORT WITH THAT MOVE! DOWN GOES DUKE! What a counter by Ronan Malosi! The official is starting to make the count force the two back in!

ONE!

TWO!!

Rich Russillo: Ronan Malosi rolls Donovan inside the ring like a bag of trash. He follows after him, he lifts Duke to his feet and throws a series of elbows to the shoulder of Duke trying to soften him up! He then grabs hold of Duke’s head with both hands! He is trying to twist cap Donovan’s head right off! Duke is in trouble but not giving up resisting Ronan’s attack with his hands. Duke gets up, throws some punches to the gut free himself from Malosi then whips Ronan to the nearest corner! Ronan slides out of the ring, runs to the other side of the ring post, rushes back in going for a clot-NO! DUKE CAUGHT HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! COVER BY DONOVAN!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: Ronan Kicks OUT!

James Peters: Close but Donovan will need to do more if he wants to put the taller Ronan away! Donovan gets Malosi up, whipping him into a corner! Ronan turns to face Donovan who hops on him! MONKEY FLIP! RONAN GOES FLYING AND LANDS ON HIS BACK! Ronan gets back up to his feet, he tries to reach Donovan! Ronan lunges AND DUKE LIFTS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS!! HOLY COW HE IS MILITARY PRESSING RONAN OVER HIS HEAD!! THAT’S 285 POUNDS AND EVEN MALOSI HIMSELF DOESN’T BELIEVE IT!! The crows love it as then Donovan goes for a quick but efficient running POWERSLAM!! COVER!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTTWWWWWOOOO!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Ronan lifts the shoulder up! This was quite the feat of strength from Donovan! The contract holder grabs at Ronan, pulls him up, and sends him into the ropes! He goes for a discus clothesline but Ronan ducks! He turns around AND SENDS A BIG BOOT TO DONOVAN! DOWN HE GOES! He gets up rather quickly but is slammed back down with a CLOTHESLINE followed by a lazy cover by Ronan Malosi!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Persephone: Lame ass bum! Too rich to properly hook the leg up?

James Peters: Donovan easily moved out of that pinning predicament! Ronan can’t possibly win this match if he doesn’t take it as seriously as he possibly can. Donovan is not going to give him the opportunity to profit through laziness or arrogance! Ronan is getting a bit annoyed at this point as he picks up Donovan and whips him into the ropes. Duke bounces chest first against the hard ropes he back steps AND GETS CLOCKED BY RONAN WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!

Ronan Malosi: (Off-Mic) And That’s Why I’m The BEST!!!

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Rich Russillo: While the crowd jeers the Dogs of War are cheering on their boss who is picking up Donovan! He goes for a punch but it’s blocked by Duke who goes on the offensive with a series of quick strikes! He turns, goes to the ropes and bounces toward Ronan, and dives forward for a hard shoulder tackle which is sending Ronan backward! But! He bounces on the second rope moving quickly toward Duke with a FOREARM SMASH!

James Peters: Donovan is getting up, looking in pain through, Ronan twists an arm applying a bit more before he whips Duke harshly into a corner! Donovan falls down, Ronan is gloating!

Ronan Malosi: (Off-Mic) The 24-7 Contract WILL Be Mine!

Rich Russillo: Ronan lifts up Duke and sizes him up before throwing in a few stiff elbows to the jaw of Donovan who’s against a corner! LOOK OUT! DONOVAN JUST GRABBED ONTO RONANS’ ARM AND MOVED OVER THE TOP ROPE! TARENTULA ARM LOCK!! RONAN IS IN TROUBLE AND LOOKING IN PAIN AS DUKE GOT HIS ENTIRE WEIGHT ON THE ARM OF MALOSI! Slowly Ronan is lifting Duke up, over the ropes! He sets him up for a one have POWERBOMB! DUKE IS SLAMMED HARD ON THE RING FLOOR! Ronan with a cover!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: Donovan lifts the shoulder up! This match will continue!

James Peters: The official who calls a Two and the official is not pleased with all by this! His pair of Dogs of War are yelling outside the ring while Ronan is thinking. He towers over Donovan, moves his head in a wise grip he is trying to twist cap it! Donovan gets up, overhead fist to the back of Duke who is down on a knee now! Ronan throws in a few more but then Donovan fights back with a series of body shots before getting whipped into the ropes. Ronan is trying for a big boot but Donovan ducks low! He quickly turns around! Kick to the midsection! AND A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! COVER BY DUKE!

Persephone: Well shit!

Rich Russillo: Malosi kicked out of that one! He gets up at the same time as Donovan who kicks him in the midsection again! Double Arm Suplex!! FOLLOWED BY A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! IT LANDS PERFECTLY BUT IT SEEMS TO HAVE HURT DUKE A LITTLE! He powers through the pain as he goes to a corner, climbing and looking down on his opponent! He throws himself at Malosi for a Crossbody BUT RONAN REVERSES IT WITH A MALSTROM!!!!!Persephone: A what now?

Rich Russillo: An Overhead F5! Donovan goes do-NO! HE REVERSED IT WITH A DDT!!! WOW! CROSSBODY TO A MAELSRTROM TO A DDT!!! WHAT A COUNTER-REVERSAL! COVER BY DONOVAN DUKE!! THIS COULD BE IT!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

James Peters: RONAN KICKED OUT OF THAT!! Donovan picks Ronan up, elbows to the side of the head! Ronan’s reeling! Springboard Stunner followed by another cover!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: AND THE ONE MOST HATED KICKS OUT ONCE MORE! This has so far been quite the competitive back and forth match between these two! Who will leave tonight with the 24/7 Contract? Your guess is as good as mine!

James Peters: Donovan enjoys the cheers of the crowd for a short moment clearly they are rooting for him to retain the contract that allows him to cash in on a Championship at any moment! He waits for Ronan to get to his knees before grabbing his head BUT RONAN THROWS IN A THROAT PUNCH! SUDDEN AND VICIOUSLY1 Duke grabs at his throat this allows for Ronan to go for a snap suplex taking Duke down! He then prompts a dazed Duke to his feet and shoves him outside of the ring before arguing with the official!

Persephone: Hey look outside!

Rich Russillo: Ronan’s Dogs of War are doing a number on Donovan! Assaulting him with kicks and punches that’s unfair! A clear advantage for Ronan is they need to get banned from the ring dammit! They drive Donovan into the ground with a dual clothesline and a shoulder block before shoving Duke inside the ring! Ronan ends up ignoring the official and throws himself at Duke for a cover!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

James Peters: Ronan got a foot on the bottom rope! The official saw it! Rope Break!

Persephone: Sigh…

Rich Russillo: Can’t say that those two are giving the other opponent an easy time in trying to win this match! This one has been quite competitive so far! Donovan moves Ronan upright trying to set him up for a powerbomb! Another feat of strength attempted by Duke! He lifts Ronan with some difficulty! Ronan lands back on his feet AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO GO FOR A SPIKE DDT! THE MOVE CONNECTS!!

James Peters: Ronan picks up Donovan, shoves him to the ropes! Duke bounces back! Ronan hoists him up for a pop-up POWERBOMB!! Ronan spits on the floor next to Donovan in spite as he laughs, he gets Duke up to his feet. Donovan is reeling in place he looks like he’s out of Mortal Kombat! Will Ronan FINISH HIM?? Ronan goes to the ropes, raising a leg for a running high knee strike BUT DONOVAN COUNTERS IT WITH A POWERBOMB REVERSAAAAAAL!!!!! MY GOD THAT STRENGHT BY DUKE!! But it comes with a price as he is holding his lower back after the move!

Persephone: Go For The Pin You IDIOT!!!!

Rich Russillo: I’m sure he wants to but seems like his back is playing tricks on him. This could cost him later!

James Peters: Donovan is waiting for Ronan to get up, this is buying him some time as well to rest his back a little. He’s is going for a hurricanrana BUT RONAN HOLDS HIM WITH BOTH HANDS! DONOVAN IS IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! MALOSI RUNS TOWARDS A CORNER! BUCKLE BOOOOOOOOMB!!! With such force by Ronan that Duke is now facing first on the mat! Malosi with much arrogance flips Donovan over and puts a boot on his chest! THE ANKLE LOCK! THE ANKLE LOCK IS IN!! Ronan tries to kick Donovan away and break the move but Duke is holding on twisting the ankle! Ronan tries again and Donovan still hangs on! He then manages to clock Duke in the face and then the 24/7 contract holder let’s go! Duke knees himself to a corner and Ronan is trying to seize back control rushing towards Donovan WHO GETS OUT OF THE WAY! RONAN’S SHOULDER KISSES THE UNFORGIVING STEEL OF THE RING POST!

Rich Russillo: Malosi crumbles down dazed! Donovan has an opportunity here and he wants to go airborne! He’s on the top rope! MISSILE DROPKICK! Donovan looks in pain but he must press on! Getting up from a corner opposite to where Malosi rests. He charges in, corner dropkick! He backs up, runs in! A high knee straight to Ronan’s jaw! He charges again! LEaping for a crossbody but Ronan catches him! SPINNING SPINEBUSTER!! Cover by Ronan!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: MALOSI HAS A HOLD OF THE TIGHTS!!!!

Persephone: FUCK!

Rich Russillo: DONOVAN KICKED OUT!!! And Ronan doesn’t believe it! He moves to the outside, dragging Donovan with him whipping him into the barricade ribs first! He then does it again! He goes for a third this time Donovan’s back slams first! He then gets some distance, running to Donovan who ducks! Malosi tackles the steel steps! That one will hurt! Donovan is inside the ring and the official is counting Malosi!

ONE!

TWO!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!!

James Peters: Ronan is helped by his Dogs of War who are encouraging him to continue the fight!

Persephone: Fucking cronies!

James Peters: Malosi going inside the ring but Duke grabs his left leg dragging him near the corner and SMACKS IT AGAINST THE STEEL! Malosi’s screaming in pain as the move is repeated! Duke goes back inside the ring, dropkick to the same leg he just attacked! Malosi can end up in a serious disadvantage soon!

Donovan Duke: (Off-Mic) Come on rich guy! Buy yourself out of this one!

Rich Russillo: Series of elbows to the face of a Malosi on his knees. Duke goes to the ropes and GETS CAUGHT IN RONAN’S VIRTIGO!! THE DEEP SIX BRINGS DONOVAN DOWN HARD!! Cover!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rich Russillo: DONOVAN KICKS OUT!!!

James Peters: Ronan tries to pin Duke again!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Persephone: NOPE!

Rich Russillo: Another kick out!

James Peters: Ronan goes to a corner charging at Donovan who ducks! He tries for a Suplex but Ronan holds onto the ropes! DONOVAN ROLLS HIM UP! NO IT BECOMES A GERMAN SUPLEX WITH A PIN ATTEMPT!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

James Peters: MALOSI KICKS OUT! Duke was so close!

Rich Russillo: Duke goes to a corner, top rope he leaps into a moonsault but lands on his feet he saw Ronan move out of the way! Both men up to their feet Duke runs to Ronan WHO GOES FOR DEATH-RO-NO! DUKE ROLLED TO THE SIDE AND GRABS AT MALOSI’S LEG! THE ANKLE LOCK! HE GOT THE ANKLE LOCK AND THIS TIME HE IS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! RONAN ISN’T ABLE TO KICK HIM AWAY THIS TIME AND HE IS IN A WORLD OF PAIN!! HE TRIES TO REACH THE ROPES BUT DUKE DROPS TO THE FLOOR PUTTING ALL HIS WEIGHT INTO THE MOVE! MALOSI SCREAMING! INCHING CLOSER TO THE ROPES WILL HE TAP BEFORE HE REACHES THEM? NO! HE GRABS ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE LOOKED SO CLOSE TO TAPPING OUT!!!

James Peters: Donovan let’s go of Ronan reluctantly but goes for an elbow drop on Malosi’s back square on the spine! He then follows with a rear-naked choke!!! He still tries to force Malosi to submit but Ronan manages to get Donovan’s shoulders to the ground having rolled over. THAT’S A COVER!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

James Peters: Donovan kicks out and breaks the hold! This just saved Ronan’s leg! Both men gets up, Ronan with a thumb to the eyes! The official warns him but Ronan doesn’t give a damn! This is on the limit of legality and Ronan knows it! Malosi whips Duke through the ropes the man lands hard on the floor outside of the ring. Malosi tests his leg, it’s not too bad looking before he moves to the apron to the outside. HE DIVES TO DONOVAN! THE DOUBLE AX HANDLE TAKES DOWN THE CONTRACT HOLDER!

Rich Russillo: Ronan is in command at this point of the match, what will he do next? The official warns that he will count them both if they don’t get in-MALOSI GOES FOR A CHOKESLAM SWITCHING TO A BACK BREAKEEEEEER!! What a move by Ronan he wants to break Duke’s back!

James Peters: Well, Donovan did try to weakened his leg after all.

Rich Russillo: Agreed, the Dogs of War are rooting for their employer who just whipped Duke against the nearby barricades and follows by a series of pressed elbow strikes! Donovan in trouble as he is hanging by the edge of the barricade surrounding the ring! Ronan moves back on the apron, he sizes his target! He leaps! DUKE NAILS RONAN WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! THAT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE AND IT BRINGS RONAN DOWN AND ON HIS BACK! Holding his face this must be hurting!

James Peters: Duke has an opportunity now as he picks Ronan up before taking him for a ride and a perfectly executed dragon suplex on the hard ring floor! He quickly gets up, nurses his back a little bit before DOING A SUMMERSAULT LEG DROP! LANDING SQUARE ON RONAN! The official has enough! He begins to count!

ONE!

TWO!!

THREE!!!

James Peters: Duke waits for a second before getting Malosi back vertical and throws in a handspring elbow that connects! He then SLAMS Ronan down with a powerslam again a display of force by the smaller Duke before he moves inside the ring to break the count. He quickly moves out, standing on the apron he’s calling for a 450 splash will he be able to do it from the apron as Ronan is getting up? He jumps! RONAN CAUGHT HIM AND SLAMMED HIM DOWN INTO A POWERBOMB ON THE APRON! DUKE’S ARCHING HIS BACK IN BACK WRITING AND SQUIRMING AS HE ROLLS INSIDE THE RING! Ronan follows suit before heading back out with Donovan in tow holding him by the hair. He moves him close to the steel steps, what is he going to… Oh no! Now the Sleeping Pill? YES! GOD DAMN! THE HEAD STOMP ON THE STEET STEPS WILL DO MASSIVE DAMAGE TO DONOVAN AND HIS CHANCES TO WIN! Ronan follows with a PENDULUM BACKBREAKER!! He’s really doing a number on Duke’s back now! He rolls him inside the ring! He goes for a pin!

ONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Persephone: HE’S HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES!!

TTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: THE OFFICIAL SAW IT!! HE POINTS TO THE HAND HOLDING THE ROPES! RONAN LOOKS LIKE A DEER CAUGHT IN THE HEADLIGHTS BEFORE QUICKLY LETTING GO! Ronan is cursing to himself for getting caught by the official and he throws punches at Donovan’s as if to let out some steam! BUT DONOVAN BLOCKS AT SOME POINT! AND HE THROWS SOME FISTS OF HIS OWN ON HIS WAY TO STANDING ON HIS TWO FEET! He then grabs Ronan’s left arm and twists it! Ronan is wincing as Donovan goes to a corner, what is he doing? He’s climbing the corner, he’s on the top turnbuckle! He’s Walking On The Top Rope Ladies And Gentlemen!!! Donovan jumps! Landing on his feet BUT HE’S GRABBED BY THE THROAT BY RONAN WHO CHOKESLAMS HIM RIGHT AWAY!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!!!

Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! Clap! Clap! ClapClapClap! THIS IS AWESOME! Clap! Clap! ClapClapClap! THIS IS AWESOME! Clap! Clap! ClapClapClap! THIS IS AWESOME! Clap! Clap! ClapClapClap! THIS IS AWESOME! Clap! Clap! ClapClapClap!

Rich Russillo: Both men are giving it everything they’ve got tonight and the fans are appreciating it a heck of a whole lot folks! Ronan is slowly getting up, but Donovan is a bit quicker! He goes to the ropes wanting to springboard himself to Ronan BUT one of Ronan’s Dogs of War tripped him! Duke is arguing with the Dogs of War as one of them tripped him! Donovan doesn’t seem to know that Ronan is bouncing off the ropes heading his way WAIT, NO HE DOES! HE JUST FLIPPED RONAN OVER THE TOP ROPES AND THE BIG MAN LANDS ON HIS SECURITY TEAM!! THE THREE CRUMBLE TO THE FLOOR! DONOVAN TAKES TO THE ROPES! BEAUTIFUL OVER-THE-TOP MOONSAULT LANDS SQUARE ON THE THREE MEN! THE CROWD IS GOING WILD!!

Crowd: DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN! DO-NO-VAN!

James Peters: The action is back outside of the ring Donovan has control for now. He picks Ronan up, bringing him to a vertical base before whipping him against the ring apron! Malosi is wincing in pain but he quickly charges forth and RAMS DUKE STIFFLY AGAINST THE BARRICADE BEHIND HIM! Donovan is arching his back holding it in pain as Ronan is bragging about his dominance in the match! Ronan grabs hold of Donovan’s hair pulling him and manoeuvering he shoves him against our announce table.

Persephone: Ah fuck no not our table! This happens EVERY DAMN TIME!!

Rich Russillo: Donovan is leaning against our table as Ronan is sizing him up! He runs! DONOVAN DUCKS LOW AND FLIPS RONAN ATOP OUR TABLE!! Donovan quickly turns and begins to throw fists of fury at Malosi’s face he is unwinding something fierce this is pleasing the sold-out crowd!! Donovan looks up, or should I say the corner post of the ring what does he have in mind? He suddenly dashes forward CLOThESLINING BOTH DOGS OF WAR!! He moves one to pile him over Ronan! He does the same with the other! He quickly goes inside the ring than on the top turnbuckle! He’s looking toward the table filled with three bodies! What will he… OH HERE IS AIR AIRBORNE! SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM THE TOP THROUGH THREE MEN AND OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! MY GAWD!!!!

Crowd: Holy Shit! Holy Shit! Holy Shit! Holy Shit! Holy Shit! Holy Shit!

James Peters: THIS LOOKS LIKE A CAR WRECK ON DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER HIGHWAY!! THERE ARE BODIES EVERYWHERE!!

Persephone: That takes care of Ronan’s bitches of War! Someone needs to pay for our fucking table!! This is unacceptable!

Rich Russillo: The Dogs are out of the equation as Donovan is slowly getting to his knees and making his way to the ring. Ronan has yet to move and the official is starting the count!!

Rich Russillo: Donovan is back in the ring, he’s flat on his back trying to recover!

Rich Russillo: He’s Not Going To Make It!!!!!!

TE-

James Peters: YOU CAN’T MAKE IT ANY CLOSER THAN THAT FOLKS! SOMEHOW… SOMEWAY!!! RONAN MALOSI MADE IT BACK TO THE RING!!!

Rich Russillo: Both men are looking exhausted at this point of the match both have shown us just how badly they want the 24/7 Contract and the fans are the big winners of it all! Both men are to their knees now and Ronan throws a fist at Donovan!

Crowd: BOOOOO!!!

James Peters: Duke throws one back at Malosi!

Crowd: YEAAAAAAHHHHHH!!

Rich Russillo: Ronan with another right hand!

Crowd: BOOOOO!!!

James Peters: Duke returns the favor to Malosi’s face!

Crowd: YEAAAAAAHHHHHH!! BOOOOO!!! YEAAAAAAHHHHHH!! BOOOOO!!! YEAAAAAAHHHHHH!! YEAAAAAAHHHHHH!! YEAAAAAAHHHHHH!!

James Peters: Donovan is gaining the edge with a series of punches BUT Ronan with a hard knee to the gut of Donovan who drops down to a knee followed by a whip to a corner! Ronan throws in a few fists to his opponent before hiking him up to the top turnbuckle, wait he is climbing on the second rope himself! He is standing on top of it now! Is he going to try and superplex Donovan? Duke blocks the move with a leg! Ronan tries again! Blocked once more! Suddenly Duke moves close to Ronan, hugg-NO WAY!! BELLY TO BELLY!! A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPES!! BOTH MEN CRASHES HARD IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!

Rich Russillo: Both men are slowly getting up!

Persephone: Dammit those bitches!!

James Peters: The Dogs Of War are trying to drag Duke outside of the ring! BUT The Official sees them!

Referee: (Off-Mic) Okay you bozos: YOU ARE OUTTA HERE!!!

Ronan Malosi: (Off-Mic) WHAT? NOO!!

Persephone: HAHA! Serves them right!

James Peters: Ronan was surely going to benefit from this ploy from his henchmen and he is arguing fiercely with the official WAIT LOOK BEHIND HIM!! DONOVAN IS GOING FOR UTTER DECIMATION!! THE GRAPEVINE DRAGON SLEEPER IS LOCKED IN!! RONAN IS FLAILING HIS ARMS AROUND IS HE GOING TO HANG ON OR CAPITULATE??? THAT’S IT!! IT’S OVER!! IT’S OVER!! THE DUKE WINS!!!!

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

( “The Outsiders” by Eric Church plays over the sound system of Lucas Oil Stadium as The Oklahoma Gentlemen gets an arm raised in victory by the official. )

Bella Braxton: Ladies And Gentlemen Here Is Your Winner AND STILL THE 24/7 CONTRACT HOLDER: DONOVAN… DUUUUUUUUKE !!!!!!

James Peters: WHAT A MATCH BY BOTH MEN! WOAH!! My hat goes to both of them they truly delivered a solid performance! Congratulations to Donovan Duke for a hard-fought and well-earned victory!

Persephone: Awww look at Ronan! Poor big tall bastard again on the losing end! There’s SOME things money can buy! A win? Hehe!

( We see Duke celebrate under the deafening cheers of the capacity crowd here in Indianapolis while Ronan is on his knees outside of the ring and is looking up to Donovan in frustration to have failed to his opponent. His Dogs of war are there for moral support but he painfully gets up shrugging them off and walking ahead of them as he makes his way towards the back. )

Rich Russillo: We can say what we want about the one who claims to be none more hated but he threw at Donovan the kind of opposition that will earn him other opportunities like this one in the future and perhaps sooner than he might think! But for now, time to lick his wounds as we go on with the show!

(Promotional ad for Pain for Pride, where Donovan Duke defends his National Elite Championship against Ryan Wilson in a No Holds Barred match.)

(Voltage returns to ringside, and ‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ by Mick Gordon begins to play, causing the crowd to explode into boos. Ryan Wilson begins to walk out after only a few seconds, and he seems to have a smile on his face despite the reaction from the crowd. Ryan is also holding a microphone in his hand, and he makes his way down to the ring as the crowd continues booing.)

James Peters: Despite what happened last week on Voltage Ryan Wilson looks pretty happy with himself, and that’s probably because of what happened after the show went off air. That was just sick what Ryan Wilson did.

Rich Russillo: As if disrespecting Donovan’s father wasn’t enough, after the show Ryan Wilson slapped Donovan Duke’s mother! It was uncalled for, but at Pain for Pride he and Donovan Duke will face off in a No Holds Barred match with the National Elite Championship on the line!

Persephone: That stipulation is the only thing saving this from being one of the most underwhelming National Elite Championship matches I’ve seen in my entire life.

(Ryan Wilson makes it into the ring, and he tries to speak but the boos are too loud, forcing Ryan to have to wait for them to quiet down, which he doesn’t seem to mind. After a while the crowd finally does begin to quiet down, and Ryan just says a few words.)

Ryan Wilson: It’s about time.

(The crowd immediately explodes into boos once again, but the amusement on Ryan Wilson doesn’t change. In fact, the grin on his face widens a bit hearing the anger from the fans in attendance.)

Ryan Wilson: What? This is what you all wanted, isn’t it? To see Donovan Duke defend his National Elite Championship at the biggest show of the year instead of cowering out and running away like a little bitch? It is, isn’t it? For some reason you all love that little loser! Something about seeing Donovan come up short literally every single time he has the chance to impress you all excites you, and because of me Donovan’s about to have the chance to let you all down in the best way possible! After all, for some reason Donovan decided it’d be a good idea for him to face ME in a No Holds Barred match! Donovan Duke just set the date of the end of his National Elite Championship reign, because when this is all over he’ll be lucky to even leave Pain for Pride! Donovan Duke is a coward, and cowards don’t survive No Holds Barred matches against people like me, people who have been fighting for an opportunity like this ALL SEASON! I have been scratching and clawing my way into an opportunity to now win a second Championship at Pain for Pride in a row! This is my time. This is the moment that I’ve been waiting for, and it’s all because Donovan Duke FINALLY decided to man up instead of wasting all his time bitching about his dead father! Crying was never going to bring him back, might as well at least try to make the rest of your family proud, even if things are going to end the same way they always do!

(The booing only grows louder, and Ryan Wilson begins to pace around the ring as he continues to speak.)

Ryan Wilson: Donovan Duke has been the National Elite Champion long enough. He has held that title hostage, and for what? To lose every single time the title isn’t on the line? To completely underdeliver in every way possible? To fail to live up to even the lowest expectations? WE DESERVE BETTER! We need a Champion that won’t make up excuses to run away from competition! We need a Champion that can actually put up a fight! Donovan’s mother got the message a week ago, and if she was smart she would’ve let Donovan know what he was getting himself into, but clearly that couldn’t have been what happened, because Donovan still thinks a No Holds Barred match benefits him. He still thinks a No Holds Barred match is the perfect way for him to “seek revenge”. Spoiler alert, that’s not what’s going to happen in a week. In one week’s time we’ll be seeing a new National Elite Champion, and honestly, when that time comes I don’t think any of you will be missing Donovan-

(Before Ryan Wilson could finish, ‘The Outsiders’ by Eric Church hits, and the crowd immediately explodes once more, but this time with cheers. Donovan Duke finally begins to walk out with a microphone in his hand, and it’s clear that Donovan isn’t amused at all after everything Ryan Wilson has done. Donovan Duke wastes no time making his way down to the ramp holding his National Elite Championship on his shoulder.)

James Peters: The Champion himself is here, and honestly I have to give him a lot of credit, both for actually agreeing to defend his title at Pain for Pride, and for somehow not storming the ring to beat the shit out of Ryan Wilson for what he did last week.

Rich Russillo: Yeah, but soon enough he’ll get the chance to do that last part, right? A No Holds Barred match between these two at the biggest show of the year sounds so exciting, and at this point I don’t think either man can wait for Pain for Pride.

(Donovan enters the ring, and walks up to Ryan Wilson.)

Donovan Duke: Ryan, I should really kick your ass right here and now after what you did to my mother.

(Despite the cheers in support of this Ryan still has a smirk on his face, like he isn’t taking Donovan entirely seriously.)

Ryan Wilson: Yeah? And why won’t you?

Donovan Duke: Because my family is full of some really smart people, and those people made me realize that when I get you back, it should happen at the biggest stage possible, in front of as many people as possible. When I get payback it’s going to be at Pain for Pride when I’m the reason you FAIL to win the National Elite Championship. I AM going to kick your ass Ryan, and when I do so I’m going to make sure you regret ever messing with my family. I wouldn’t have cared if you just kept insulting me. I wouldn’t have minded if you kept trying to make this about a few losses I’ve taken as National Elite Champion. Back then you were annoying. Back then I wanted to shut you up, but you changed this entirely once you brought my family into it. The fact that you pushed me to the point of facing you after all that’s happening in my life isn’t a good thing. It’s not something you should be proud of. Pushing me to this point solidified your own loss, and trust me Ryan, when I get the chance to finally shut you up and put an end to this, I’m going to enjoy every part of it.

(Ryan Wilson remains silent for a few seconds, but the grin on his face has begun to disappear as he finally begins to respond.)

Ryan Wilson: Really? You think you’re going to beat me at this point? I get it, you need to convince yourself that you can do it knowing that your family wants to are you succeed. You think you have to come out here and tell the whole world how you have what it takes, but you don’t! You never have, and you’re not suddenly going to have what it takes now against a competitor like me! I’ve been fighting for the chance to win another Championship and throughout the season I’ve proven to be one of the most dangerous motherfuckers here on Voltage, and you think I’m going to allow myself to lose in a match like this, a match I can thrive in??

(The determined look on Donovan Duke’s face doesn’t change for a few seconds, and when it does it becomes more of a smirk.)

Donovan Duke: Nah, I don’t think you’ll “allow yourself” to lose. I know that I’m going to defeat you whether you like it or not, because for the past few weeks you crossed a like that shouldn’t have even been touched. You went too far and then you doubled down on it, and that was just the start of it. You’ve been asking for this for weeks Ryan, and I’m going to love EVERY second of it. Do you really think you’re the only one that’s been waiting for a match like this? All I’ve wanted was to prove myself as the National Elite Champion and make sure I can deliver to the best of my ability every single week. Win or lose my goal was to elevate this Championship and live up to the incredible legacy it already has, and Ryan now that I’m facing you at Pain for Pride I’m going to make sure I have a match that goes down in the history books, but it won’t just be because I delivered again. It won’t just be because I did my best, it’ll be because I put you down for the three count and sent you right to the back of the line!

(The crowd once again begins cheering, and Ryan tries to respond.)

Ryan Wilson: No, you’re-

Donovan Duke: We’ve heard more than enough from you Ryan. You keep bringing my father into this. You hit my mother. You’ve done everything in your power just to try and get under my skin, and I promise that this is all just gonna come back to bite you at Pain for Pride. Things never had to go this far, but you insisted it did. You knew that I not only had a family emergency but that my father passed away and you chose to use that to call me a coward. You chose to make this about the National Elite Championship when the only thing that was on my mind was my family. Trust me this was a very long time coming, and I’m sure I’m not the only one that can’t wait to see you get what you deserve. You made a huge mistake, Ryan. I don’t care how long you’ve been fighting for this. I don’t care how badly you want this Championship. You ruined that weeks ago. When I walk into Pain for Pride there will only be one thing on my mind, and that’s taking you down and shutting you up. You went after the people I care about, and at Pain for Pride I’m going to make sure your night ends in failure. I don’t know when you’ll become Champion again and I don’t care, but it won’t be at my expense, and it won’t be at Pain for Pride-

James Peters: WOAH, WAIT A SECOND!!! I THINK DONOVAN DUKE FINALLY HIT A NERVE, AS RYAN WILSON JUST SLAMMED HIS MICROPHONE INTO DONOVAN’S FACE AND DROPPED DONOVAN TO A KNEE!!! RYAN WILSON TRIES TO PULL DONOVAN DUKE IN FOR THE MIC DROP- BUT DONOVAN IMMEDIATELY BEGINS RUNNING FORWARD, RAMMING RYAN WILSON BACK FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!!! RYAN WILSON IMMEDIATELY STARTS PUNCHING DONOVAN’S BACK, AND DONOVAN IS PUNCHING RYAN IN THE SIDE!!

Rich Russillo: RYAN WILSON PUSHES DONOVAN OUT OF THE CORNER AND HITS DONOVAN WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!!! After that microphone shot that boot dropped Donovan Duke, and now Ryan Wilson grabs Donovan before looking to send him over the top- NO! DONOVAN DUKE TURNS IT AROUND, SENDING RYAN WILSON OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING INSTEAD!!! WE SAW THIS BEFORE GRAND RAMPAGE AND EVEN AT THE SHOW BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE DONOVAN DUKE IS PLANNING TO STOP THERE THIS TIME AROUND!!!! DONOVAN DUKE RUNS THE ROPES AS RYAN WILSON GETS BACK UP, AND NOW HE GOES FOR A SUICIDE DIV-

James Peters: NO!!!! RYAN WILSON AVOIDS IT, SENDING DONOVAN DUKE CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE INSTEAD!!!! RYAN WILSON JUST AVOIDED A SUICIDE DIVE, AND NOW RYAN WILSON GRABS DONOVAN BEFORE SENDING HIM CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!!

Rich Russillo: Ryan Wilson sees Donovan Duke slowly pulling himself back up to his feet even after being sent to the steel steps, AND NOW RYAN RUNS IN BEFORE HITTING A SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!! Donovan Duke was just taken out by his challenger at Pain for Pride!

(Ryan Wilson paces a bit, clearly pissed off, and after taking a look at the National Elite Championship which was dropped by Donovan, Ryan begins to go after the Champion once again.)

James Peters: WAIT WAIT WAIT- RYAN JUST GRABBED DONOVAN BY THE HEAD AND NOW HE IS SLAMMING HIS HEAD INTO THE SIDE OF THE STEEL STEPS!!!! RYAN WILSON IS SLAMMING DONOVAN’S HEAD INTO THE STEPS!!!

(While the crowd was initially booing loudly, they immediately quiet down in shock as they watch Ryan repeatedly bash Donovan Duke’s head into the steel steps.)

Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) JUST WAIT!! JUST WAIT UNTIL PAIN FOR PRIDE!! I’M TAKING THAT TITLE DONOVAN, YOU HEAR ME????

(CRASH!)

Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) THAT!

(CRASH!)

Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) TITLE!

(CRASH!)

Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) IS!

(CRASH!)

Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) MINE!!!

(Ryan Wilson finally lets go of Donovan as Donovan Duke drops down onto the ground. The boos are extremely loud, and Ryan Wilson just goes and grabs the National Elite Championship. The grin he had slowly begins to creep up on his face once more after laying out the Champion, and Ryan Wilson raises the title as ‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ begins to play once again. Ryan drops the title on top of Donovan Duke as he begins to make his way up the ramp, and from there Voltage fades away from ringside.)

[SCREENBAR: ROAD TO REDEMPTION 2021 – EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER]

(The scene fades to a promotional video for the Extreme Elimination Chamber for the EAW World Championship, before dissolving into a shot of Bella Braxton inside the ring.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS AN EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH AND IT IS FOR THE EAW WORLDDDDD CHAMPIONSHIPPPPP!!!!

( The crowd becomes absolutely unglued because this the main event of the evening! )

Bella Braxton: The match will begin with two Elitists inside the ring, while the other four competitors are locked inside of their pods. Every five minutes, a randomly selected pod door will open, allowing another Elitist to enter the match! The process will continue until every Elitist has entered the match! Once an Elitist is pinned, submitted, or knocked out, they must exit the chamber! The last person remaining will be the EAW WORLD CHAMPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNN!

(The crowd roars in excitement for the main event of the evening as ‘High All The Time’ by 50 Cent plays Justin Windgate onto the Road To Redemption stage. He eagerly and excitedly makes his way onto stage as he points to the fans sitting in the far rafters and fist bumps young kids at the edge of the stage. Justin Windgate is also carrying a paintball gun beside him.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN! WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS, JUSTIN ‘THE XTREME CLASSIC’ WINDGATEEEEEE!!!

(The crowd cheers loudly as he begins to walk down the ramp.)

James Peters: Oh boy, is this match going to be something else. Six of Voltage’s best competing for the coveted EAW World Championship. All six of these competitors know what gold in EAW feels like, but to beat Drake King for the EAW World Championship would undoubtedly solidify you as a face of EAW in so many regards. This is the chance of a lifetime and guys like Justin Windgate don’t intend on wasting it.

Rich Russillo: I have to also imagine Justin has a bit of an experience edge over many of his peers in regards to not only these extreme matches, but just how violent our champion, Drake King can truly be. How torturous and evil he can be inside this ring and how this structure is only going to amplify that. He’s walking down to the ring with a Paintball gun, which will be his weapon in this year’s Voltage Extreme Elimination Chamber, and I must say, it’s not often you see a man taking a paintball gun into an extreme elimination chamber, but here we are!

(Justin Windgate enters the ominous structure, but not before taking a deep breath and entering the jaws of death.)

(‘The Only Thing They Fear Is YOU’ by Mick Gordon takes over the speakers as Ryan Wilson’s presence can be felt on stage. He walks onto the stage very nonchalantly with a hockey stick wrapped in barbed wire.)

Bella Braxton: NEXT, WRESTLING OUT OF MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA! WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS! ‘THE KING OF QUEBEC STRONGSTYLE, RYANNNNNNN WILSONNNNNNNN!!!

(The crowd boos Wilson as he doesn’t pay them much mind.)

Rich Russillo: This man is a dark horse tonight, but when his eye is on the ball, he can be extremely dangerous. He isn’t letting the crowd get to him, he isn’t swayed by the magnitude of the event or match, Ryan Wilson is calm, cool and collected right now. That’s exactly how he’ll need to be to handle the feeling of competing inside this structure of doom and terror. He’ll have to channel some of that darkness we’ve seen him harness before and show the world all of Ryan Wilson.

James Peters: Agreed, he’s a wildcard of sorts here. One of the only elitists in this match with no partnership or devotion to another person, he’s here only for him and to get everyone else out of there as fast as he possibly can. And that hockey stick with barbed wire on the end of it isn’t something I’d want to be on the receiving end of!

(‘Sky’ by Playboi Carti begins to play as Jake Smith enters the arena to a chorus of boos. Likely because of both Jake Smith and the atrocious choice in music. Jake Smith, in all his glory, makes his way onto the stage and soaks in the greatness of this moment. A world championship match at one of the biggest events of the year.)

Bella Braxton: NEXT, WRESTLING OUT OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY! WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS, JAKE ‘THE MORAL COMPASSSSS’ SMITHHHHHHH!!!

(The crowd boos, with a sprinkle of cheers, as Jake Smith walks down the ramp. However, most of the fans aren’t paying attention to him. They are looking at his rather interesting weapon. )

Persephone: What the fuck is this simp carrying with him?

( Upon further inspection, Jake Smith is carrying a cardboard cutout of Hailee Steinfeld, wrapped in barbed wire, and attached to a 2×4.)

Persephone: Wow that really is something. This guy is a fucking sexual harrasment lawsuit waiting to happen :mjlol:

Rich Russillo: :mjlol: Yeah, that is quite the weapon.

James Peters: If you wanna talk history with our current champion, look no further. Drake King and Jake Smith have been pallareles for years, but Drake always seemed to grab the huge star-making moments that have eluded Jake. Even just a few months ago at Clash of Kingdoms 2, Drake King snuffed out Jake’s dream of becoming the EAW World Champion in a hardfought match that ended with Drake’s seal of approval over the end of their most recent chapter.

Rich Russillo: Jake sees this as not only a chance to get that back, but to also steal back the crown jewel of power of New Eden and Drake. The EAW Championship is perhaps the most illustrious and coveted in the entire company, so for Jake to possess it, you know that would kill Drake inside and be a massive statement against New Eden. Jake has a huge chance in front of him tonight to make history and finally take advantage of that one career defining moment that he’s always looked for.

(‘44 Bulldog’ by Pop Smoke begins to ring throughout the arena as the gravelly vocals and erratic production play the always charismatic Chris Elite onto the Road To Redemption stage.)

Bella Braxton: NEXT WRESTLING OUT OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK!!! WEIGHING IN AT 210 POOUUNNDSSS, CHRISSSSSS ‘GAWD GIVEN GREATNESSSSS’ ELLLLIIITTTEEEEEEEEE!!!

(The crowd gives a mixed reaction to Chris Elite as he makes his way toward the top of the ramp. In his hand, is a pillow case, and it appears to be full of something. Chris pauses on the stage and grins, reaching his hand inside of the pillow case and removing something. )

Persephone: Uhhhh what the fuck is that?

( Chris Elite holds up what’s inside of the pillow case. )

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a6/Nokia_6110_blue-92107.jpg/800px-Nokia_6110_blue-92107.jpg
Rich Russillo: :mjlol: That is a cellphone, Seph.

Persephone: Do what?? That doesn’t look like anything Apple would make like literally ever.

James Peters: :mjlol: That’s because it’s an old Nokia phone. I have no idea how the hell Chris Elite found enough old ass Nokia phones to fill an entire pillow case but that is something.

Persephone: Out of all the things this man could use to defend himself, he brings a pillowcase full of Nokia phones. Fucking wow. Moron.

James Peters: This man may have the most drive and will to win this match of any competitor here. He’s been adamant about affirming his position as not only one of the top guys, but a legitimate championship level talent in EAW to this day and there is no better way to do it than to capitalize on this chance right here, right now.

Rich Russillo: That’s true, but he’s also going to have to know how to strategize and keep his focus in check because he has a personal rivalry with New Eden and Drake King that runs deep. So does Jake Smith and these two partners tonight are going to have to use that alliance at points to counteract the heavy New Eden presence in this match.

(Chris gets into his pod, the final of four needing to be filled and now ‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie takes over, the lights dim and spotlight on the stages focuses on a kneeling Minerva, who licks her lips, tilts her head towards the chamber and is coated in the flashing lights before standing up and placing a rose in her mouth. However, she is not wearing her title.)

(Minerva is also seen sportin a ‘Cat O’Nine Tails Whip’ with small, razor sharp, black roses at the end of each cattail. Studded in jewels and layered with orange rhinestones.)

Bella Braxton: NEXT, WRESTLING OUT OF BUCHAREST, ROMANIA! WEIGHING IN AT 122 POUNDS, THE EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! ‘THE BLACK ROSE’ MINERVAAAAAAAA!!!!

(The crowd boos as Minerva slowly makes her way down the ramp.)

James Peters: Minerva has been on the run of her life since joining forces with Drake King and Myles, forming New Eden. Now the EAW National Elite Champion, Minerva knows that working through this match with Drake King and ensuring that New Eden leaves with the title is vital. As long as they can prevent someone else from having access to it, then they’ve done their job, according to them. Minerva also is one of, if not arguably the most skilled elitists in this match. She truly is a wizard inside this ring and this style of violent carnage fits her to a tee.

(Minerva rolls into the ring and readies herself to begin the match as ‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer, welcomes out the coldest champion there is today. Engaging the title next to him is Drake King as he enters on the Road To Redemption stage.)

Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENT! WRESTLING OUT OF THE DEAD SEA, ISRAEL! WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS! HE IS THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION, DRAKE ‘THE REDEEEMMEERRRRR’!!!!!

(The crowd boos very heavily as Drake keeps a cold and dead stare on the chamber. Drake is seen with his signature branding iron, which he’ll be taking to the chamber with him.)

Rich Russillo: Boy, does the champion have his toughest task ahead of him tonight. All of these challenges are worthy of singles challenges, let alone five at once. But if there was anyone champion I think could do it, you’re looking at him. Drake King has been DOMINANT since becoming the World Champion at Pain For Pride, not ever missing a beat and staying consistent with his title defenses. Two incredible matches and showings for Drake in singles matches against Justin Windgate and Jake Smith in the past few months, he’ll need to be his best self tonight to conquer both at the same time.

James Peters: It all comes down to this match. This will set the tone of the rest of the season and put us on the road to Pain For Pride. I cannot wait and these competitors are stirring to begin this main event here at Road To Redemption. LET’S GET IT!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Rich Russillo: HERE. WE. GO.

James Peters: The main event is underway as Drake King and Minerva are here to start off our 2021 EAW World Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber! Man, this is one of those matches, it just has that huge match feel because we know the implications of this match. It sets us on the road to the Grand Rampage and paves the way for the rest of the season on Voltage. All six of these competitors know that and they’re not here to lose, they’re here to make the most of their career’s biggest opportunity to date and start on the journey towards Pain For Pride as the EAW World Champion!

Rich Russillo: Absolutely and Drake King has perhaps the largest mountain he’s seen yet to climb, here tonight. He’s starting off this match with fellow New Eden member, Minerva and it looks like they’re going to put the weapons down. These two know how vital it is to preserve yourself in this match, but that isn’t going to stop them from kicking off the action! Drake and Minerva meet in the center of the ring, a collar and elbow tie-up between these two as Drake manages to overpower Minerva and march her back into the turnbuckle.

James Peters: Drake about to release the hold- but Minerva grabs the wrist and slips under Drake, now taking his back and pulling him back to the center of the ring. She lifts him into the air, Drake trying to use his size advantage to fight out of this hold, Minerva is able to trip him down to his knees and take over with a side-headlock. Minerva with some solid groundwork, controlling Drake’s movements, now ripping him back down to the canvas, Drake hits hard as Minerva wraps his arm around his back and pins her knee into his spine! Wonderful mat wrestling from Minerva, who is displaying right now that she can truly do it all!

Persephone: Yeah, except get a better hairdresser. Her highlights look like an overly-sensitive teenage girl made an impulsive decision to put a blindfold on and dye her hair different characters. That hair is a crime to the colorblind community, I mean, what color even is it?!?

Rich Russillo: It’s the color of fire because that’s what she’s on right now! Minerva has her knee in Drake’s back and now tries to take over with a crossface submission! Drake is able to slip out of this one and bring Minerva up with him as he stands up to his knees, then his feet! He’s got Minerva up in powerbomb position! She slips out the backdoor and rolls Drake up- No! He rolls through and gets back up, throwing a kick at the face of Minerva, who slides out of the way and grabs the outstretched leg of Drake King! Drake launches himself up and now sends Minerva tumbling to the other side of the ring with a jumping headscissors! Wow! What a counter from the champion!

James Peters: They’re both showing all their abilities right now and neither really can gain a clear edge over the other! You’re seeing now why New Eden is so dominant, the skills both of these elitists possess are tremendous! Drake and Minerva have obviously decided to come out tonight and use the first five minutes of this match to show the world what wrestling should be about!

Rich Russillo: Absolutely, they just gave each other a nod of respect as they meet in the middle again- BANG! Drake with an absolutely thunderous knee to the midsection of Minerva! That one sounded like a balloon popping as Drake rattled the organs of the National Elite Champion! The EAW World Champion changing things up and surprising Minerva with a sneaky knee to the gut as he now Irish-whips her into the turnbuckles. He tries to charge in after her with a running forearm and it thuds off her cheekbone as her head whips around and she falls into the lap of Drake King! He grabs her body and lifts her into position for a falcon arrow-

James Peters: Minerva with a boot on the outside of that bottom rope, she’s defending against this falcon arrow with everything she’s got, but Drake shocked her system with that forearm a few seconds ago! Drake grabs her by the arm and drags her into the middle of the ring, now he’s in perfect position for the falcon arrow! He lifts Minerva up and- CRACK! A knee of her own to the head of Drake as he’s forced to drop her back to the canvas! Minerva now with a short-arm clothesline, but that one missed as Drake ducked under it and now takes the back of Minerva, OH BOY, DRAKE KING! HE LIFTS HER UP FOR AN INVERTED FALCON ARROW-

Rich Russillo: MINERVA WHIPPED HER LEGS OVER AND MANAGES TO SWING OVER TOP OF DRAKE KING AND REVERSE THE POSITION! What wherewithal from Minerva! She was able to get her legs over the top and land on her feet, now she’s the one who has Drake in position for an attack! Drake drops his back to the canvas and drags Minerva’s wrist with him, bringing them both down to the canvas. What creative defensive wrestling from Drake King, who gets back to his feet and wraps his arms around Minerva’s head in side-headlock position!

James Peters: Drake has a tight headlock in and Minerva is trying to shove him away, but Drake isn’t easily swayed! She bounces off the ropes and tries to throw Drake away, but he drags them both down to the mat in this position and now puts his knee into the back of Minerva! Drake showing off his mat wrestling too in the early goings of this match, not allowing Minerva back to her feet. Drake locks his hands around her face and wrenches back on the chin, his knee still pressed against the back of her neck! A tortuous facelock from Drake King, who looks like he’s about to snap the neck of Minerva in two!

Persephone: Wouldn’t be the first time he’s fucked up her throat. You hear that Myles? You’re a cuck and you know it.

Rich Russillo: Drake lets go of this hold and now peels his eyes on Minerva, allowing her to get back to her feet. These two have shown us some spectacular technical wrestling tonight, but they know that their best chance is to use their numbers advantage and pick apart the other competitors in this match, one by one.

(Minerva gets back to her feet as she exchanges some indiscernible words with Drake King. The two look as if they’re in agreement, but still, it’s unknown what they’re discussing. Their eyes focus on the countdown clock as it begins from 5.)

FIVE!!!…

FOUR!!!!…

THREE!!!…

TWO!!!!…

(Drake and Minerva both pick up their weapons, Drake sporting that branding iron and Minerva with that Cat O’ Nine Tails Whip. They look around the chamber and stand tall in the middle of the ring.)

Rich Russillo: Oh boy, I pity whoever has to face these two-

ONE!!!…

BUZZ!!!!

Rich Russillo: THE THIRD ELITIST IN THE CHAMBER IS THE ‘MORAL COMPASS’ HIMSELF! THE SHORT SUPERSTAR! JAKE SMITH IS IN THE CHAMBER!

James Peters: JAKE STORMS RIGHT OUT OF HIS POD, HE’S WIELDING THAT 2×4 THAT HAS A…CARDBOARD CUTOUT OF HAILEE STIENFIELD ON IT! AND IT’S WRAPPED IN BARBWIRE! JAKE STORMS INTO THE RING AND HE BLASTS DRAKE ACROSS THE SHOULDER WITH THE 2×4! DRAKE FALLS TO THE GROUND AS MINERVA WHIPS THOSE CATTAILS AT JAKE SMITH! HE USES THE 2×4 TO CATCH THE CATTAILS AND DEFEND HIMSELF, MINERVA’S WIRE-SHARP BLACK FLOWERS DON’T CATCH JAKE! YET!

Persephone: Drake just got his ass beat by Haliee Stienfield, what a loser!

Rich Russillo: Minerva rips her whip back and away from that 2×4, NOW TRYING TO STRIKE THE LEGS OF JAKE! HE SIDESTEPS AND DROPS THAT 2×4 ONTO THE CANVAS! A BOOT TO THE MIDSECTION OF MINERVA AND JAKE HOOKS THE NECK FOR A DDT! TRYING TO DRIVE HER HEAD FIRST INTO HAILEE- No! DRAKE BACK IN THE MIX AS HE SWINGS THE BRANDING IRON AT THE FACE OF JAKE SMITH! THAT BRANDING IRON CRUSHES THE NOSE OF JAKE AND DROPS HIM TO THE GROUND WITH ABSOLUTE FORCE!

James Peters: I know that hurt! Jake knew he would be a victim of this New Eden presence in the match, the history he’s had with them has been so bitter and the blood boils over every time these Elitists step into the ring with one another! The bridge of Jake Smith’s nose is trickling small drops of blood into his weakly trimmed beard, he’s completely out of sorts after Drake slammed that branding iron into his face and now grabs him by the hair, scowling down at the wincing face of Jake Smith with nothing but pure contempt. Drake thought he had written the last chapter of their long history together with a win at Clash of Kingdoms 2, but Jake and Chris managed to rewrite an impossible sequence of events and gain the win over Drake and Camille at Wicked Games.

Rich Russillo: Drake hasn’t forgotten, nor has he forgotten anything since then. Drake may have ice in his veins, but Jake is more than just a thorne in Drake’s side. Right now, Drake is gonna make him pay for it! The Champion throws Jake’s face back to the ground and viciously stomps on his body! Boots from hell going right through the spine of Jake Smith! OH NO, DRAKE PROPS THE ARM AND HE’S LOOKING TO BREAK IT! DRAKE STOMPS ON THE ARM OF JAKE SMITH AND-

James Peters: NO! Jake evades it and manages to roll to the ropes, he looks taken aback that Drake’s attempted something so malicious from the get go, but this match isn’t for the faint of heart! Jake stands up and Drake runs at him with a lariat, Jake ducks under it and now fires a boot right into the midsection of Drake, stopping the champion in his tracks! He bounces of the ropes himself and-

CRACK!

James Peters: MINERVA STINGS THOSE CATTAILS OFF THE CHEST OF JAKE SMITH AS HE FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES IN PAIN, THUDDING ON THE CAGE FLOOR OUTSIDE! JAKE’S CHEST WITH SMALL CUT MARKS ALL OVER IT AS HE LEAKS SMALL STREAMS OF BLOOD THROUGH THE UNFORGIVING STEEL FLOOR! MINERVA STILL WITH THAT WHIP IN HAND, SHE FOLLOWS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE AND DRAGS HIM RIGHT TO THE CHAMBER OF CHRIS ELITE! MINERVA IS SHOVING THE FACE OF JAKE AGAINST THE GLASS AND BOUNCING IT OFF THE CHAMBER LIKE A BASKETBALL!

Rich Russillo: MY GOD, THE SOUND HIS SKULL MADE AGAINST THAT CHAMBER GLASS WAS ABSOLUTELY SICKENING! HE’S DAZED AND MINERVA IS STILL ON THE ATTACK! JAKE NEEDS ANOTHER MEMBER IN THIS CHAMBER MATCH BAD, BUT THEY’RE NOT COMING ANY TIME SOON!

James Peters: Minerva lifts him up by the hair, pulling it by the roots and RAISING THE WHIP UP TO HER HEAD! SHE’S GONNA LET LOOSE AGAIN! WAIT! NOT THIS TIME AS JAKE SHOVES HER BACK AND MANAGES TO EVADE THAT ATTACK! MINERVA CRACKS THAT WHIP AGAIN AND JAKE SIDESTEPS IT, NOW RETURNING FIRE WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE FACE OF MINERVA! HE KICKED HER IN THE FACE- DRAKE GRABBING JAKE’S FACE FROM INSIDE THE RING, LEANING OVER THE ROPES AND YANKING HIS NECK AGAINST THEM, BUT JAKE GRABS THE WHIP AND RIPS ONE OF THOSE RAZOR SHARP FLOWERS OFF, NOW JAMMING IT INTO THE EYE OF DRAKE KING!! JAKE STUCK IT STRAIGHT INTO HIS EYE AND DRAKE IS IN BAD CONDITION!

Rich Russillo: HE’S STILL TEETERING WITH HIS FEET ON THAT BOTTOM ROPE, HALF INSIDE THE RING, LEANING OVER THE TOP ROPE, JAKE HAS A HOLD OF HIM AS DRAKE CLUTCHES AT HIS EYE! JAKE-WAIT?! WHAT IS JAKE DOING?! HE’S GOT DRAKE NOW IN SUPLEX POSITION, PERHAPS LOOKING FOR ONE OF HIS SIGNATURE MICHINOKU DRIVERS ON THIS CAGE FLOOR! DRAKE IS GRABBING THE ROP ROPE FOR DEAR LIFE, DOING ANYTHING HE CAN TO-

CRACK!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA CRACKS THAT WHIP AGAIN FROM BEHIND JAKE SMITH AND HE DROPS DRAKE BACK INTO THE RING, FORCED TO BUCKLE TO HIS KNEES AND DOUBLE OVER IN PAIN! MINERVA STARES RIGHT AT CHRIS, TAKING SOME BLOOD FROM THE BACK OF JAKE SMITH AND SMEARING IT STRAIGHT ON THE GLASS POD, CHRIS ELITE IS CHOMPING AT THE BIT TO GET HIS HANDS ON NEW EDEN!

James Peters: That’s certainly a sight to behold, Chris Elite is being kept like a lion behind a curtain of Jake Smith’s blood, while Minerva is on the outside just tearing him apart. Jake Smith is in dire condition here. Minerva hoists him up and perches him on the top turnbuckle, they’re still outside the ring and a fall from that height…onto that cage floor…this structure is the worst weapon of all. Minerva follows him up there, OH BOY! SHE WANTS TO RIP JAKE DOWN TO THAT CARNIVOROUS STEEL BELOW- BUT JAKE SMITH WITH A NASTY HEADBUTT! AND ANOTHER ONE! HE SHOVES MINERVA OFF THE TOP ROPE AND SHE TUMBLES INTO THE RING-

Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL?!? DRAKE KING ON THE OUTSIDE, HE RUNS UP THE ROPES LIKE A CAT AND STANDS JAKE UP ON HIS FEET! DRAKE KING SUPERPLEXES JAKE SMITH ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THAT STEEL CAGE FLOORING AND JUST RIPPED THEIR BODIES APART! OH MY GOD, DRAKE KING WITH A THUNDEROUS SUPERPLEX,

PUTTING HIS OWN BODY THROUGH HELL JUST TO TAKE JAKE WITH HIM, AND MY GOD, DID HE EVER!!!!

James Peters: GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY! DRAKE KING JUST SLAMMED THE BOTH OF THEM DOWN ONTO THAT UNFORGIVING AND BLOOD RIDDLED STEEL FLOOR BELOW, I THINK I HEARD SOME OF THEIR ORGANS CLATTERING AGAINST THEIR RIBCAGE, JESUS LORD!!

(Drake King rolls off Jake Smith in intense pain as he barely manages to crawl his way under the bottom rope. Minerva with a look of concern on her face as Drake King is unresponsive and still out after that massive superplex of Jake Smith.)

Rich Russillo: That one took both men out, my god. And I have an eerie feeling that won’t be the worst to happen to these men tonight. Minerva is trying desperately to tend to Drake, but he’s compromised. Drake is in as bad a condition as Jake is and now Minerva is the only one left on her feet. WAIT, BUT NOT FOR LONG!

FIVE!!!…

FOUR!!!….

THREE!!!…

TWO!!!…

(Minerva looks around the chamber, smearing the blood of Jake Smith on her own face as she awaits the next entrant.)

ONE!!!…

BUZZ!!!!

(The spotlight shines down on…)

Rich Russillo: HERE COMES RYAN WILSON! HE’S WIELDING THAT HOCKEY STICK THAT’S WRAPPED IN BARBED WIRE AND BOY, HE’S EAGER TO GET INTO THIS MATCH! MINERVA SWINGS THE WHIP AT WILSON AND HE MANAGES TO BLOCK IT WITH THE HOCKEY STICK, THEN YANKING THE WHIP OUT OF MINERVA’S HAND AND CLOCKING HER IN THE FACE WITH THE HOCKEY STICK! BLOOD SPLATTERS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF MINERVA AND SPILLS ONTO THE CANVAS LIKE KOOL-AID!

James Peters: WILSON THEN SMACKS THE HOCKEY STICK AGAINST THE BACK OF BOTH DRAKE AND JAKE! RATTLING THE BARBED WIRE OFF THE SPINE OF DRAKE KING AGAIN AND IT SEEMS RYAN HAS FOUND A TARGET IN THE CHAMPION! HE KNOWS THAT IF HE CAN GET DRAKE OUT RIGHT NOW, THAT’S A HUGE BOOST OF CONFIDENCE IN THIS MATCH! RYAN DROPS THE HOCKEY STICK AND LIFTS DRAKE UP! HE HITS HIM WHERE IT HURTS WITH AN ATOMIC DROP AND NOW IRISH WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER! OH BOY, HERE COMES WILSON!

Rich Russillo: HE SURGES INTO THE CORNER WITH A HELLUVA KICK- NO! DRAKE JUMPED OUT OF THE WAY AND RYAN STRANDED HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE! DRAKE NOW GRABS MINERVA’S WHIP, WRAPS IT AROUND THE NECK OF RYAN WILSON AND RIPS HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH IT! MAN, THAT WAS NASTY FROM THE CHAMPION AS HE NOW STOMPS ON THE BODY OF RYAN WILSON-

James Peters: OUT OF NOWHERE, JAKE SMITH BACK IN THE MIX AND HE CRACKS THAT 2X4 OVER THE BACK OF DRAKE’S HEAD! HE TRIED TO CRUSH HIS SKULL WITH THAT ONE AND MY GOD, DRAKE’S BODY HIT THE CANVAS HARD! NOW JAKE SEES WILSON, BUT TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO DRAKE KING! OH MY GOD, HE’S SMASHING THE 2X4 OVER THE BACK OF DRAKE, OVER AND OVER AGAIN! THAT BARBED WIRE AND WOOD ARE MAKING A HOME IN DRAKE’S VITAL ORGANS AND ABSOLUTELY BATTERING HIM! THIS MAY BE TAKING DRAKE TO A POINT OF NO RETURN BECAUSE HE CAN’T TAKE MANY MORE OF THESE-

SNAP!

Rich Russillo: JAKE SMITH HIT DRAKE KING SO MANY TIMES HE SPLINTERED THAT WOOD IN HALF! THE WOOD SPLIT INTO TWO MASSIVE SHARP WOOD SHARDS AND NOW JAKE LOOKS DOWN AT THE BLOODY, RIPPED AND MUTILATED PHOTO OF HALIEE STEINFEILD! HE LOOKS BACK AT DRAKE AND DRAGS HIM UP TO HIS KNEES! BANG! A SUPERKICK! A SUPERKICK THAT SNAPS OFF THE BACK OF DRAKE’S SKULL AND HIS BODY DUMPS INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! JAKE SMITH GRABS DRAKE BY THE BEARD AND TELLS HIM THAT HE’S GOING TO BE WRITING THE END OF THIS CHAPTER OF THEIR CAREERS! JAKE SMITH WANTS TO END DRAKE KING ONCE AND FOR ALL-

James Peters: RYAN WILSON LIKE A THUNDERBOLT, DELIVERS A HUGE HELLUVA KICK TO THE SIDE OF JAKE’S HEAD AS HE SPINS AROUND AND HITS THE ROPES BEFORE FALLING FLAT ON THE CANVAS! RYAN PICKS HIM UP AND SPINS THE BODY OF JAKE SMITH AROUND WILDY BEFORE DROPPING HIM WITH ‘LE BOMBE BLUE’!!!! THAT BLUE THUNDER BOMB THAT JUST DROPPED JAKE TO THE MAT WITH FORCE COULD BE WHAT WILSON NEEDS, HE GOES FOR THE COVER, TRYING TO ELIMINATE JAKE SMITH!!!

ONE!

TWO!

Rich Russillo: JAKE KICKS OUT, BUT FOR HOW LONG CAN HE STAY IN THIS?! HE’S TAKEN SO MUCH PUNISHMENT ALREADY AND WE’VE STILL YET TO EVEN GET TO ALL OF THE COMPETITORS IN THIS MATCH! WAIT! DRAKE FROM BEHIND, HE BLASTS RYAN WITH A FOREARM AND RYAN RETURNS FIRE WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! AN UPPERCUT THAT SLAMS OFF THE CHIN OF DRAKE KING! DRAKE COMES BACK WITH ANOTHER HARD FOREARM TO THE FACE OF WILSON AND RYAN BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES- NO! MINERVA WAS ON THE OUTSIDE, SHE WAS WAITING FOR HIM! MINERVA GRABS WILSON’S ARMS AS DRAKE CLOTHESLINES HIM OVER THE TOP AND SENDS HIM TUMBLING ONTO THAT CAGE FLOOR!

James Peters: Ryan just hit the floor hard and Minerva grabs him by that overgrown hair of his and starts to drag his face against the cage! Ryan’s face is shoved and dragged against the cage by Minerva, but Ryan shoves her away and hits her with another solid European uppercut! Minerva comes back with a NASTY LARIAT- BUT SOMEHOW RYAN STAYED ON HIS FEET! A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF TOUGHNESS FROM RYAN WILSON, WAIT!..HE FELL RIGHT INTO THE ARMS OF DRAKE KING AS HE WAS STUMBLING BACKWARDS, DRAKE SPINS HIM AROUND, HOOKS HIS ARMS AND PLANTS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE STEEL WITH AN ‘ASCENSION’!!!!! RYAN WILSON IS OUT!!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE WITH AN ABSOLUTELY MERCILESS ‘ASCENSION’ ON THAT OUTSIDE AREA, RYAN WILSON’S FACE AND SKULL ARE MASHED POTATOES RIGHT NOW! Wait…

(Drake tilts his head up in the air, then stares down at Ryan Wilson, a deep breath of thought as he looks at Minerva and picks up Wilson.)

James Peters: DRAKE IS LIFTING WILSON UP ONCE AGAIN, MINERVA AIDING HIM, THEY’RE MOUNTING RYAN ON DRAKE’S SHOULDERS!!! WHAT IN GOD’S NAME- WAIT, NO! DRAKE RUNNING ACROSS THE RINGSIDE AREA AND POWERBOMBING RYAN THROUGH THE EMPTY POD CHAMBERRRRRRRRRRRR!!! RYAN’S BODY FOLDING AND BURIED UNDER THAT GLASS AS THE ENTIRE EXPLODED INTO DISBELIEF!!!!

(The crowd roars loudly at the spectacle as Drake King stumbles around the outside of the ring and uses Minerva to stay upright.)

Rich Russillo: THAT TOOK SO MUCH OUT OF DRAKE KING TOO, THIS MATCH HAS BEEN SO TAXING ON EVERY SINGLE COMPETITOR SO FAR AND NOBODY IS GONE YET! But for all intents and purposes, Ryan WIlson just may be. There aren’t any signs of motion or life coming from that pile he’s in, New Eden could drag him in the ring right now and likely finish this night for him-

James Peters: JAKE SMITH WITH DRAKE KING’S BRANDING IRON! HE CRACKS IT OVER DRAKE’S BACK AND DROPS THE CHAMPION TO THE GROUND! MINERVA CHARGES TOWARDS JAKE, HE DROPS THE BRANDING IRON AND SIDESTEPS MINERVA! HE GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE CAGE WALL! AND AGAIN! JAKE SMITH RUNNING MINERVA’S PEARLY WHITES INTO THAT UNFORGIVING STEEL CHAIN LINK, NOW CLOTHESLINING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SENDING HER TUMBLING BACK INTO THE RING!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA GOES FOR A BIG BOOT! JAKE CATCHES IT AND THROWS IT BACK TO THE GROUND, QUICKLY JUMPING UP WITH A SNAPPING ENZEGUIRI OF HIS OWN! MINERVA IS ROCKED AS JAKE THROWS HER TO THE GROUND AND JUST STARTS UNLOADING WITH PUNCHES! MY GOD, THIS RIVALRY IS SO DEEPLY PERSONAL AND JAKE SMITH WANTS TO MAKE NEW EDEN PAY! HE’S RAINING FIRE ON MINERVA WITH THESE BOMBS FOR FISTS, SHE’S COVERING UP, BLOODIED AND BRUISED, THERE’S BLOOD FROM BOTH COMPETITORS SPILLING ALL OVER THE HANDS OF JAKE AND THE FACE OF MINERVA!

James Peters: DRAKE KING BACK IN THE RING, HE PICKS UP THAT MASSIVE SHARD OF WOOD AND DRIVES IT RIGHT THROUGH THE UPPER ARM OF JAKE SMITH!!! OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, JAKE SMITH SCREAMING OUT IN AGONY-

TEAR!

James Peters: DRAKE RIPS IT RIGHT BACK OUT AND I CAN SEE THE ACTUAL PIECES OF WOOD STILL LEFT INSIDE THAT ARM OF JAKE! HE LITERALLY WAS JUST STABBED STRAIGHT THROUGH THE ARM WITH THAT MASSIVE SHARD OF WOOD AND THERE ARE GOD KNOWS HOW MANY SPLINTER STILL IN HIS ARMS! MINERVA NOW COMES TO AND DIGS HER FINGERNAILS INSIDE OF THAT WOUND! JUST TRYING TO TEAR OPEN THE FLESH OF JAKE AND THE BLOOD IS REALLY SPILLING ALL OVER BOTH JAKE AND MINERVA!

Persephone: I CAN’T TELL WHICH ONE OF THESE THREE LADIES IS ON THEIR PERIOD, BUT GOOD LORD, THIS ONE’S A DOOZIE!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA AND DRAKE KING’S ALLIANCE AS FELLOW NEW EDEN MEMBERS HAS PAID DIVIDENDS TONIGHT! THEY’VE SHUT DOWN JAKE SMITH HERE AND ARE DISMANTLING HIM BRUTALLY! I CAN’T BELIEVE THE REFEREE LET JAKE COMPETE AFTER TAKING ESSENTIALLY A STAKE THROUGH HIS ARM! THAT MIGHT NOT BE THE WORST OF HIS PROBLEMS THOUGH, MINERVA AND DRAKE KING HAVE THE SAME LOOK IN THEIR EYES AND THEY’RE LIFTING JAKE SMITH UP TO HIS FEET, PERHAPS NEW EDEN WILL FINISH JAKE SMITH OFF ONE FINAL TIME. FOREVER SEALING THE COFFIN AND BURYING THE LEGACY OF JAKE SMITH AS NOTHING MORE THAN SOMEONE WHO COULDN’T STOP THEM.

(As Drake and Minerva keep Jake Smith upright, the fans seem to start buzzing tremendously and the world’s eyes collectively shift away from these three competitors…)

James Peters: Wait, what is….WAIT…IS THAT??? IT’S RYAN WILSON, HE’S ON TOP OF THE CHAMBER POD! HE’S ON TOP OF THE POD, WE THOUGHT HE WAS DOWN AND OUT, BUT HE’S AS HIGH AS HE’S EVER BEEN AND RYAN WILSON FLIESSSSS OFFF THE TOOOPPPPPP OFFFFF THEEEE PODDDDD WITH A WHISPER IN THE WINDDDDDDDDDDD!!!! A WHISPER IN THE WIND THAT TAKES EVERYONE OUT AND FLOORS ALL THREE COMPETITORS! RYAN WILSON IS BACK IN THIS MATCH!!

Rich Russillo: AND HE’S NOT THE ONLY ONE!

FIVE!!!…

FOUR!!!…

THREE!!!…

TWO!!!!…

ONE!!!!…

BUZZ!!!

(The crowd holds its breath in sheer excitement as the spotlight shines down on one of the pods.)

Rich Russillo: HERE COMES THE LIFE OF THE PARTY! JUSTIN WINDGATE IS IN THIS MATCH, BABY! JUSTIN WINDGATE AND HIS…PAINT…PAINTBALL GUN ARE IN THE MATCH! THIS MEANS THAT CHRIS ELITE WILL BE THE LAST ENTRANT AND THUS FAR, STILL NOBODY IS GONE FROM THIS MATCH!

James Peters: Justin Windgate takes his time getting into the ring, he knows that all four competitors are badly hurt. This could be his chance to…wait…what is he doing? Justin Windgate climbing to the top turnbuckle, now grabbing onto the top of the pod and pulling himself to the very top of the chamber pod….I have no idea what Justin Windgate is doing. Wait, WAIT! JUSTIN WINDGATE NOW SETS UP THE PAINTBALL GUN AND THESE FOUR COMPETITORS ARE JUST STARTING TO COME TO! MINERVA SEES WHAT’S ABOUT TO HAPPEN AND SHE DIVES OUTSIDE THE RING, SHELTERING HERSELF INSIDE ANOTHER POD!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE OPENS FIRE AND HE IS NAILING THESE THREE MEN WITH PAINTBALLS! WINDGATE FIRING AT JAKE, DRAKE AND RYAN! BANG! RYAN GETS NAILED WITH A HEADSHOT, RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES AS JUSTIN FINISHES HIM OFF WITH A FEW MORE SHOTS TO THE CHEST AS RYAN HITS THE CANVAS AND TRIES TO ROLL UNDER THE TOP ROPE! DRAKE AND JAKE ARE TAKING SHELTER WHERE THEY CAN, JAKE GRABS THE BODY OF RYAN WILSON AND USES HIM AS A HUMAN SHIELD! BANG! BANG! RYAN’S BACK IS GETTING LIT UP AS JAKE USES IT TO PROTECT HIMSELF!

James Peters: DRAKE OUTSIDE THE RING, HE’S CLIMBING THE CAGE! HE’S CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP OF THE POD! JUSTIN WINDGATE SEES HIM NOW, STANDING UP AND PLACING THE GUN STRAIGHT IN FRONT OF DRAKE KING’S FACE! JUSTIN WINDGATE HASN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE HORRIFIC THINGS DRAKE DID TO HIM AT BLOODSPORT! JUSTIN WINDGATE FIRES A SINGLE SHOT AT THE FACE OF DRAKE AND THAT ONE SENT DRAKE FLYING BACK ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR!

CRASH!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE’S BODY JUST SLAMMED AGAINST THAT METAL CAGE AGAIN AS JUSTIN WINDGATE SHOT HIM OFF CLIMBING ON TOP OF THE POD! WINDGATE ON HIS FEET, STILL FIRING AT HIS OPPONENTS! THOSE PAINTBALLS HAVE TO RUN OUT AT SOME POINT, BUT HE’S GOING TO MAKE THE MOST OF THEM! JAKE RUNS OUT FROM BEHIND RYAN, GRABS HIS HOCKEY STICK AND THROWS IT BARBED WIRE END AT JUSTIN WINDGATE! IT CLOBBERS JUSTIN IN THE FACE AND HE DROPS THE PAINTBALL GUN OFF THE TOP OF THE POD!

James Peters: JAKE SMITH CHARGES ACROSS THE RING, DIVING FOR THE PAINTBALL GUN-

Rich Russillo: MINERVA TAKES HIM CLEAN OUT OF THE WAY AND DOWN TO THE GROUND! SHE DROPS PUNCHES, ELBOWS AND HEADBUTTS THE FACE OF JAKE! MINERVA WAS GETTING HER FACE SMASHED IN BY JAKE EARLIER, SHE’S GONNA PUT JAKE THROUGH AS MUCH PAIN AS POSSIBLE RIGHT HERE- CRACK! NOW IT’S RYAN WHO SWINGS THE WHIP OF MINERVA AT HER OWN BACK AND STINGS HER DOWN TO THE MAT! HE DROPS THE WHIP AND GRABS THE HOCKEY STICK, SMASHING AGAINST THE CHEEK OF JAKE SMITH AND A DAMN TOOTH JUST FELL OUT WITH A POOL OF BLOOD FROM JAKE’S MOUTH! THERE’S A TOOTH SITTING ON THE CANVAS IN A SPILL OF HIS BLOOD!

Persephone: HE HAS DISEASES, EVERYONE PUT YOUR MASKS ON! I HEARD MIDGETITIS IS AIRBORNE!

James Peters: Drake barely managing to collect himself on the outside, Ryan Wilson SLAMS THAT HOCKEY STICK IN HIS FACE! MAN, HE WANTS REVENGE FOR THAT POWERBOMB FROM EARLIER! RYAN NOW UNWRAPPING THE BARBWIRE FROM THE END OF THE HOCKEY STICK, YELLING OUT IN PAIN, BLEEDING THROUGH IT, STILL RIPPING IT OFF! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING?! RYAN TAKING THAT BARBED WIRE OFF AND NOW WIELDING IT IN HIS HANDS!

Rich Russillo: RYAN TAKES THE BARBED WIRE AND WRAPS IT AROUND DRAKE’S NECK!! HE’S WRAPPING THE BARBED WIRE AROUND DRAKE’S NECK, OH MY GOD, WILSON IS ACTUALLY TRYING TO KILL HIM! HE’S RAISING HIS FOOT UP LIKE HE’S GONNA STOMP ON IT! RYAN WILSON IS ABOUT TO STOMP ON THIS BARBED WIRE AND DRAKE KING IS-

BOOM!

James Peters: A HEADSHOT FROM MINERVA! SHE USED THE PAINTBALL GUN AND HIT RYAN RIGHT IN THE EYE WITH IT! RYAN’S EYEBALL MIGHT BE DESTROYED AS HE STUMBLES BACKWARDS AND ROLLS IN PAIN! DRAKE IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET THAT BARBED WIRE OFF, BUT IT’S CUTTING UP HIS HANDS AND HE’S BLEEDING ALL OVER HIMSELF! DRAKE IS CUTTING HIMSELF OPEN ON THIS BARBED WIRE, ONLY A MADMAN LIKE WILSON WOULD HAVE WILLINGLY DONE SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HIMSELF AND DRAKE!

Rich Russillo: Minerva is trying to help untangle this barbed wire, but they’re both in pain trying to do it and WIlson really wrapped it tight around his neck. It’s slippery, sharp and a bloody mess.

Persephone: Sounds like Minerva’s dick after a night pounding Drake Queen.

(Minerva turns around, opens the ammo tank on the paintball gun, removes the bullets and stomps them into the steel grate below.)

Rich Russillo: Minerva’s doing everything she can to neutralize her opponents and get this barbed wire off Drake’s neck.

James Peters: They’re really struggling to get that wire away from Drake’s neck and slowly, we’re seeing small trickles of blood coming down the sides of his neck onto his shoulders. This really isn’t good for Drake or Minerva. His skin was a dark red color, now it’s becoming a paler, more depleted and empty color. Drake is showing the loss of blood volume here and this is a real problem, he might have to call this and let Minerva finish this match for New Eden. Allow the title to maintain within the group, without potentially dying inside this ring from blood loss.

Rich Russillo: IT AIN’T BLOOD LOSS! IT’S JUSTIN WINDGATE! HE’S PERCHED ON THE TOP OF THE POD STILL, HE’S COME TO AND NOW HE SOARS THROUGH THE AIR WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY, FLOORING MINERVA AND LANDING ON DRAKE TOO!!!! HE TAKES OUT NEW EDEN WITH THAT CROSS BODY! JUSTIN WINDGATE LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD BY DIVING OFF THE POD AND RISKING IT ALL TO TAKE OUT BOTH MEMBERS OF NEW EDEN, BUT THAT TOOK A LOT OUT OF HIM TOO! JUSTIN WINDGATE HIT THAT STEEL FLOOR HARD AND HE’S CLUTCHING AT HIS RIBS AS JAKE AND RYAN COME TO INSIDE THE RING!

James Peters: Jake slugs Ryan with a big right hand! Ryan fires back with an uppercut! These two both trading power shots! NOW RYAN JUMPS WITH A KNEE THAT CONNECTS FLUSH ON THE JAW OF JAKE SMITH! RYAN BOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND JAKE NAILS A BICYCLE KICK TO THE SKULL OF RYAN, NOW LIFTING HIM UP AND PARALYZING HIS BACK WITH A NASTY BACKSTABBER! JAKE WITH A BACKSTABBER THAT HAS RYAN DOWN! JAKE MAKES HIS WAY TO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AND WAVES RYAN ON! HE INVITES HIM BACK TO HIS FEET! JAKE JUMPS TOWARDS RYAN WITH ‘HELL ABOVE’ AND DRIVES RYAN’S SKULL INTO THE CANVAS!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE TRYING TO JUMP INTO THE RING! MINERVA GRABS HIS LEG AND RIPS HIM BACK! SHE POKES HIS EYE AND THEN SHOVES HIM BACK FIRST INTO ONE OF THE PODS! WINDGATE HIT HARD AS MINERVA NOW GRABS HIS ARMS AND PROPS HIM UP ON HER BACK…OH NO!!! MINERVA, DON’T!!!! MINERVA DROPS JUSTIN WINDGATE ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A VERTEBREAKER ON THE STEEL!!! OH MY FUCKING GOD, OH MY FUCKING GOD, JUSTIN WINDGATE’S CAREER SHOULD BE OVER, I DON’T CARE HOW MANY CONCUSSIONS A YEAR YOU WRESTLE THROUGH, THE BACK OF HIS HEAD IS DRIPPING BLOOD THROUGH THE STEEL GRATE!!!

Rich Russillo: It’s Minerva’s time! She gets back in the ring and goes face to face with Jake Smith! MINERVA FLOORS HIM WITH A CLOTHESLINE! HE GETS UP AND MINERVA DROPS HIM AGAIN! THIS TIME JAKE GETS UP, MUCH MORE LABORED AND SLUGGISHLY! MINERVA TOSSES HIM AGAINST THE ROPES AND CATCHES HIM IN A NASTY SPINEBUSTER ON THE END OF IT! JAKE’S SPINE SLAMMED INTO THE MAT AS THE FOUNDATION SHOOK WITH THAT SPINEBUSTER!

(Minerva rolls away from Jake with an exhausted look on her face, she glances at the clock and it’s nearly at 5. She looks at Chris Elite and smiles at him, she’s ready to reignite this bad blood.)

FIVE!!!…

FOUR!!!…

THREE!!!…

TWO!!!!…

ONE!!!!…

(The crowd cheers heavily as Minerva prepares for Chris Elite.)

BUZZ!!!

James Peters: HERE COMES CHRIS ELITE! HE WAS WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT AND HE’S READY TO MAKE NEW EDEN PAY-

(Chris Elite is looking around and waiting for the pod door to open, but it’s jammed. The door isn’t opening and Chris doesn’t have any idea why.)

Rich Russillo: What the?! The spotlight is shining on Chris Elite, but his pod door is still shut?! He’s banging on the glass, he’s signaling for someone to come open the door, kicking it and banging on it, but that door is still shut!

(Minerva gleans a malevolent smile at Chris Elite as she drags Jake Smith back in the ring. Chris Elite is smashing against the pod glass as Minerva plants a foot on the base of Jake’s skull and keeps him pressed against the canvas.)

James Peters: Oh no..Minerva’s picked up on this malfunction of Chris Elite’s pod and she’s gonna torture him by making him watch this! MINERVA GRABS THAT WHIP OF HERS AND TAKES ONE OF THE FLOWERS IN HER HAND, OH NO, DON’T DO THIS MINERVA! SHE TAKES THAT RAZOR SHARP FLOWER AND STARTS TO CARVE OUT…A WORD!!?!? SHE’S ETCHING SOMETHING IN JAKE SMITH’S BACK! SHE’S DRAGGING THAT KNIFE SHARP FLOWER UP AND DOWN HIS BACK LIKE A FINGERPAiTNING AND JAKE IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA JUST WROTE “NE”?!? SHE JUST CARVED OUT NEW EDEN’S INITIALS ON JAKE’S BACK AND JAKE SMITH IS ABSOLUTELY WRITHING IN PAIN! HE’S SUFFERING AND JUST HAD THOSE LETTERS CARVED INTO HIS SKIN, MINERVA IS SMILING BIGGER THAN I’VE EVER SEEN HER!! THIS IS DESPICABLE!

James Peters: IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW DEEP A RIVALRY IS, THAT’S INSANE. OKAY? SHE JUST TOOK THIS A STEP TOO FAR!

Rich Russillo: THIS IS THE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER, IF EVER A PLACE TO WRITE YOUR DAMN INITIALS INTO SOMEONE’S BACK IN BLOOD, IT’S NOW! MINERVA IS NEW EDEN FOR LIFE! IT’S FLOWING THROUGH HER VEINS! THIS GROUP IS SEALED AND BONDED IN BLOOD-

BUZZ!!!!

(A huge buzz is heard as the EAW fans explode into excitement and Chris Elite’s pod door finally opens.)

Rich Russillo: OH BOY, HERE HE COMES! THERE’S NO DOOR BETWEEN THEM NOW AND CHRIS ELITE IS WIELDING THAT PILLOWCASE FULL OF NOKIA PHONES!

Persephone: Out of every weapon he could’ve brought with him?!?!

James Peters: Y’ALL DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE NOKIAS MAN! THOSE THINGS WERE LIKE VIBRANIUM BACK IN MY DAY! CHRIS ELITE JUMPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND MINERVA CRACKS THE WHIP AT HIM AS HE USES HE PILLOWCASE TO SHIELD HIMSELF FROM THOSE BLISTERINGLY SHARP BLACK ROSES! NOW CHRIS DUCKS UNDER A RIGHT HAND FROM MINERVA, SWINGS THE PILLOWCASE AROUND AND CATCHES MINERVA IN THE JAW WITH THAT PILLOWCASE OF NOKIAS! CHRIS ELITE SMACKED THE TASTE OUT OF HER MOUTH WITH THAT ONE!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA IS DROPPED TO HER KNEES AND DOESN’T KNOW WHERE SHE IS! CHRIS ELITE STARES DOWN AT HER AND SLAMS THE PHONES AGAINST HER SPINE! AND AGAIN! CHRIS ELITE IS ABSOLUTELY BEATING HER DOWN WITH THIS SACK OF NOKIAS!

Chris Elite: (off-mic) FUCK YA LIFE!

James Peters: DRAKE CAN SEE MINERVA BEING BEATEN BY CHRIS ELITE! DRAKE WITH A DISGUSTED LOOK ON HIS FACE, HE BITES DOWN AND STARTS RIPPING THE BARBED WIRE OFF OF HIS NECK! IT’S CUTTING THROUGH HIS FINGERS, SLICING HIS FACE OPEN AND CUTTING HIS NECK!!! DRAKE’S SCALP NOW DRIPPING BLOOD ALL OVER HIS FACE AS HE SCREAMS IN AGONY AND RIPS THIS CROWN OF SORTS FROM HIS HEAD!!!

Rich Russillo: BIG BHRIS SWINGS THAT PILLOWCASE OF NOKIAS AT THE SKULL OF MINERVA- NO! DRAKE INTERCEPTS HIM AND SMASHES CHRIS IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH ONE OF THOSE PIECES OF 2×4!!!! HE CRACKED IT AGAINST THE SIDE OF CHRIS ELITE’S HEAD!

James Peters: DRAKE NOW LIFTING CHRIS UP, DRAKE WANTS TO GET HIM OUT OF THERE EARLY! HE LIFTS CHRIS UP FOR A POWERBOMB! ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND NOW DRAKE RUNS ACROSS THE RING WITH CHRIS ELITE IN HIS ARMS, LOOKING TO DROP HIM NECK FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! CHRIS ELITE ABLE TO COUNTER AT THE LAST SECOND WITH A HURRICANRANA THAT SENDS DRAKE TUMBLING HEADFIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! A WONDERFUL COUNTER FROM CHRIS ELITE, WHO STANDS BACK UP DRAWS A BOOMING REACTION OUT OF THIS ROAD TO REDEMPTION AUDIENCE!

Rich Russillo: CHRIS PICKS UP THE NOKIAS AGAIN, HE SWINGS IT AT AN ONCOMING MINERVA! SHE JUST BY THE SKIN OF HER TEETH AVOIDED THAT SWING, WHICH HAD DECAPITATING INTENT! NOW TAKING CHRIS ELITE’S BACK AND GRABS HIS NECK! INVERTED FACELOCK POSITION FOR MINERVA! SHE’S GOT A ‘TWILIGHT’ IN MIND! CHRIS WRESTLES OUT OF IT AND REVERSES THE HOLD, NOW HE’S GOT THE WRIST- NO! MINERVA SPINS OUT AND TAKES THE ARM OF CHRIS ELITE! WONDERFUL TECHNICAL WORK FROM BOTH ELITISTS AS CHRIS ELITE TRIES TO DUMP MINERVA OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A BACK BODY DROP, BUT SHE LANDS ON HER FEET!

James Peters: MINERVA LANDED ON HER FEET AND SHE’S ON THE OUTSIDE! CHRIS STINGS HER WITH A FOREARM THAT SENDS HER STUMBLING AGAINST THE CHAMBER WALL! NOW CHRIS ELITE, HE JUMPS TO THE TOP ROPE AND FLIES TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A DIVING HURRICANRANA THAT NOW SENDS MINERVA HEAD FIRST INTO THE GLASS POD! CHRIS ELITE WITH ANOTHER HURRICANRANA AND HE GIVES MINERVA A TASTE OF HER OWN MEDICINE FROM EARLIER!

Rich Russillo: Chris Elite dragging Minerva on the outside of the cage, he’s got personal stakes in this too beyond the championship and he’s been looking forward to this for weeks! Chris now with a punch! And another punch! THE SHOOT KICK TO THE LEG WOBBLED MINERVA! THE SPINNING BACKFIST NOW LANDS ON THE FACE OF MINERVA, HERE GOES CHRIS WITH THE ‘5 BOROUGH COMBO’-

James Peters: DRAKE KING THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A SUICIDE THAT TAKES CHRIS AND MINERVA DOWN TO THE GROUND! DRAKE KING IS DRENCHED IN BLOOD RIGHT NOW, IT’S RUNNING DOWN HIS HEAD, FACE, NECK AND BODY, BUT HE’S STILL FIGHTING LIKE A MAN POSSESSED! HIS FACE IS BARELY VISIBLE, IT’S COATED IN A RED CURTAIN OF BATTLE AND WAR! BUT HE WON’T GIVE IN! HE WON’T LET NEW EDEN LOSE THIS MATCH!

Rich Russillo: Drake is helping Minerva up to her feet, these two still standing at the same time is dangerous for everyone in this match. Look at Wilson! WILSON IS BACK UP AND HE CHARGES TOWARDS THE BOTH OF THEM, BUT NEW EDEN REPELS HIM BACK AND MINERVA LANDS ‘THE DEVIL’S TOUCH’ PINPOINT ON THE CHIN OF RYAN! THAT ONE FLOORED HIM AND HE CRUMBLED DOWN TO THE STEEL GRATE BELOW!

James Peters: Drake grabs Jake Smith and starts throwing him around violently, yelling and screaming in the face of Jake. Nothing is ever forgiven or forgotten with Drake King! DRAKE HOOKS THE HEAD AND ARM OF JAKE, LOOKING FOR A BRAINBUSTER! JAKE HAS A LEG INSIDE THE RING, UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE’S HANGING ON, HE KNOWS TAKING A BRAINBUSTER ON THIS STEEL FLOOR COULD BE FATAL TO HIS CHANCES TONIGHT! OOOHHHH, DRAKE WITH A SOLID KNEE RIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION OF JAKE AS HE SHOVES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND JAKE STUMBLES INTO THE RING! JAKE GETS TO HIS FEET AND SWINGS WILDLY FOR DRAKE, BUT DRAKE AVOIDS IT AND TURNS IT RIGHT AROUND INTO A THUNDEROUS FALCON ARROW! A FALCON ARROW THAT SAT JAKE DOWN BAD!

Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE BACK IN THE MIX, I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW AFTER THAT HORRID VERTEBREAKER THAT LITERALLY HAD HIS SCALP LOOKING LIKE A GUSHER ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! HE’S STILL HALF OUT OF IT AS HE TRIES TO MUSCLE DRAKE TO THE CORNER, BUT MINERVA’S ALREADY ON IT! NOW DRAKE HOPS TO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AS MINERVA HOLDS WINDGATE! SHE GRABS HIS WAIST AND DRIVES HIM DOWN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX AS DRAKE KING ALSO HITS A BLOCKBUSTER SLAM AT THE SAME TIME! WHAT TANDEM OFFENSE FROM EAW’S MOST DOMINANT FACTION!

James Peters: Tandem being the perfect word because these two operate like a well-oiled machine. A well-oiled machine that Chris Elite apparently wants more part of! HE MAKES HIS WAY BACK INTO THE RING AND STARTS SWINGING TYSON LIKE HOOKS FOR THE SKULLS OF BOTH MINERVA AND DRAKE! THE CROWD IS CHEERING HIM AS HE CONTINUES TO FIGHT! DRAKE SWINGS FOR CHRIS AND CHRIS MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER IT AND SCRAMBLE TO HIS PILLOWCASE OF NOKIA PHONES! HE TWISTS IT UP AND CLOBBERS DRAKE IN THE SKULL WITH IT! THE CHAMPION FALLS TO THE CANVAS AS CHRIS ELITE FOCUSES HIS EYES WITH LASER SIGHT ON MINERVA!

Rich Russillo: SHE GOES FOR A LARIAT, BUT CHRIS USES THAT PILLOWCASE TO WISP HER HAND AWAY AND NOW SWINGS IT FOR HER HEAD LIKE A BASEBALL BAT! SHE EVADES THE ATTACK AND NOW FLOORS CHRIS WITH A CLOTHESLINE! MINERVA TAKES THE PILLOWCASE FROM CHRIS ELITE AND SWINGS IT OVER HIS BACK WITH ALL HER MIGHT! MY GOD, THOSE NOKIA PHONES ARE LIKE BRICKS WITH KEYPADS AND THEY’RE CRUNCHING OVER THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE!

(Minerva unties the pillowcase and dumps all of the phones out of the sack, only to find that something got mixed in with them.)

James Peters: Is that…IS THAT…A CHIA PET???

Rich Russillo: IT IS!

Minerva: (off-mic) This thing has more hair on it than you do, Chris.

James Peters: SHE THROWS THE CHIA PET ACROSS THE CHAMBER, BUT CHRIS GRABS TWO PHONES, ONE FOR EACH HAND AND STARTS TO TEE OFF ON MINERVA! LEFTS AND RIGHTS, BING BONG, NOKIA HERE, NOKIA THERE, LEFT, NOW RIGHT, NOW DUCK!!! CHRIS IS BOXING UP A STORM WITH THESE PHONES AND NOW CRUSHES ONE STRAIGHT OFF THE FOREHEAD OF MINERVA! THE PHONE SNAPPED IN HALF AS MINERVA HIT THE CANVAS!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE FROM BEHIND, HE PUTS THE PILLOWCASE OVER CHRIS HEAD AND TRIPS HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! HE LUNGES FORWARD AND NAILS HIM WITH THE ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’’!!!! OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, HE JUST HIT THE ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’ ON CHRIS ELITE AND SURELY HE’S DOWN AND OUT! THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL, BUT DRAKE COLLAPSES TO THE CANVAS OUT OF SHEER EXHAUSTION, HE CAN’T BRING HIMSELF TO COVER CHRIS! THEY’RE ALL BEYOND THEIR LIMIT, BUT STILL FIGHTING FOR EVERY BREATH TO WIN THIS CHAMBER!

(Chris Elite lays lifelessly as Minerva rips the sack from his head.)

James Peters: Wait…Why is she not pinning him?! WHY IS SHE NOT PINNING HIM?!? COME ON, YOU CAN END HIM RIGHT HERE AND NOW, MINERVA WANTS TO PLAY WITH NEW EDEN’S FOOD AND TORTURE CHRIS ELITE MORE THAN THEY ALREADY HAVE! THEY DON’T WANT TO END IT THERE, THEY WANT TO TAKE HIM OUT OF THIS GAME FOR GOOD!

(Drake sluggishly stands up and Minerva grabs the left leg of Chris Elite, looking at Drake King and cracking a devilish smile. Evil intentions are on the minds of New Eden.)

Rich Russillo: THESE TWO HYENAS ARE STOMPING AWAY AT THE LEFT LEG OF CHRIS! THEY’RE ELBOWING IT AND STOMPING IT, TRYING TO RIP IT APART AND RIP HIS LIGAMENTS IN HALF! THEY’RE ABOUT TO TORTURE CHRIS ELITE’S LEG! DRAKE WITH A STOMP, MINERVA RETURNS ANOTHER ONE TO THAT LEFT LEG OF CHRIS! THEY’RE BOTH TAKING TURNS PICKING IT APART, NOW DRAKE WITH A DRAGON SCREW! HE RIPS THAT KNEE OFF THE BASE WITH THAT DRAGON SCREW! A FEROCIOUS ATTACK FROM DRAKE AND CHRIS IS CLUTCHING AT HIS KNEE BADLY!!

Persephone: I’m surprised his knees didn’t buckle already from having to carry the weight of the Blicky Boyz on his back! That and that big ass bald boulder head of his!

James Peters: New Eden is on him like a pack of hounds just like everyone else in this match and we know exactly how that fared for them! Drake grabs hold of the hurt leg and now is looking to go for something, BUT NO! CHRIS USES HIS FREE LEG TO KICK AT DRAKE’S FACE FORCING HIM TO LET GO! Drake falls against the chainlink of the Chamber while Minerva is on the move, BUT CHRIS GRABS AHOLD OF HER HEAD WITH HIS LEGS BEFORE TURNING IT INTO A BEAUTIFUL HURRICANRANA! WHICH GIVES HIM THE MOMENTUM THAT HE NEEDS TO GRAB AHOLD OF DRAKE’S HEAD AND TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A SITOUT FACEBUSTER IN TRANSITION! CHRIS ELITE IS STILL FIGHTING!

(Chris drops right back down to the ground clutching onto his leg for dear life. It’s bloodied, and surely immobile, while he reaches out and grabs the chainlink and begins to try and pull himself up with all of his might. The best he can do is use the structure as a crutch in order to keep himself up, but it won’t be long before New Eden gets the better of him, so it’s just a scenario where he has to make this leeway that he has count.)

Persephone: :damn: Maybe if they go any further, we’ll have to amputate Chris’ leg! How fun would that be?!

Rich Russillo: Well I definitely don’t want to envision a scenario where that happens. Drake is clutching onto his head while Minerva is seated trying to get her bearings, BUT SHE DOESN’T SEE CHRIS SWING HIS LEG FORWARD TRYING TO KICK HER DEAD IN THE FACE! Which doesn’t happen because Minerva manages to roll backward just in time! Minerva holds her ground trying to collect herself before sprinting forward, BUT CHRIS PUSHES HIMSELF OFF THE CHAINLINK AND SPLITS MINERVA IN HALF WITH A SPEAR!

James Peters: I don’t know how much longer Chris can go, but it seems like he’s running off of pure adrenaline now despite himself dragging that leg behind him, it’s like he doesn’t feel anything! Drake is trying his best to get up now, BUT CHRIS CLUTCHES ONTO THE ROPES BEFORE LEAPING OFF OF THEM AND TAKING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SPLIT-LEGGED MOONSAULT!

Chris Elite: (Off-Mic) LET’S FUCKING GO!!!

(Chris is up on a knee now while the crowd is screaming at the top of their lungs for the Hall of Famer. Chris then looks towards the chainlink before taking a deep breath, he looks down at New Eden before once again he pulls himself towards the walls of the structure and looks up before…)

Persephone: Does this motherfucker have a death wish?! Why the fuck is he climbing up that shit?!

Rich Russillo: Chris is using all of his might to try and climb up the Extreme Elimination Chamber, I don’t even know how he has the strength to do that considering that he’s carrying deadweight behind him in the process!

Persephone: Hey, you don’t need to call him deadweight, you can just call Jake by name.

James Peters: You can see Minerva lunge forward grabbing ahold of the leg of Chris, but Chris despite all the pain manages to swing his injured leg towards the head of Minerva sending her back but also triggering a cry of pain from Chris as a result! Chris continuing to climb while Minerva falls right into Drake who is attempting to get up himself, both of them take their eye off the prize long enough…

Rich Russillo: FOR CHRIS TO LEAP OFF OF THE CHAINLINK OF THE CHAMBER AND TAKE BOTH MEMBERS OF NEW EDEN DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A BEAUTIFUL AERIAL MOONSAULT! HOW IS CHRIS ELITE DOING IT?!

James Peters: Chris landed horribly on his leg forcing him to scrunch his face in agony but immediately he tried to get himself back up to his feet. Minerva is flat on the ground while Drake is slowly getting up, New Eden have probably gotten the hint that this isn’t turning out so well for them! Drake is up, BUT BEFORE LONG CHRIS GOES FOR OPEN YA MATA! THE JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO THE HEAD OF THE WORLD CHAMPION!

Rich Russillo: BUT MINERVA FROM BEHIND WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF THE KNEE OF CHRIS ELITE WHICH DROPS HIM DOWN! NOW LOOK AT NEW EDEN BEGINNING TO STOMP DOWN ON CHRIS’ LEG REPEATEDLY, CAUSING HIM TO ONCE AGAIN SCREAM IN AGONY BECAUSE OF THE SITUATION THAT HE’S UNFORTUNATELY FOUND HIMSELF IN RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: Oh my, Minerva and Drake have some clearly nasty plans for that leg of Chris Elite, they just slung him between the ropes to the outside of the ring and are talking with one another…oh no- THEY HOIST HIM UP AND TRAP HIS LEG IN THE CHAINLINK OF THE CHAMBER, CHRIS IS HANGING FROM THE CHAMBER WALL AS HIS LEG IS CARRYING ALL OF HIS WEIGHT RIGHT NOW! THEY’VE GOT CHRIS HANGING FROM THE SIDE OF THE CHAMBER AND MINERVA JUST GRABBED THE BRANDING IRON!

Rich Russillo: LOOK AT THIS! RYAN WILSON FLIES IN FROM BEHIND, BLASTING BOTH MEMBERS OF NEW EDEN! HE JUMPS ON MINERVA, BUT DRAKE RIPS HIM OFF AND THEN IRISH WHIPS HIM BACK TOWARDS MINERVA! ‘DEVIL’S TOUCH’ TO THE SKULL OF RYAN AND DRAKE KICKS OUT THE LEG OF THE DAZED BODY OF RYAN WILSON! NOW CHARGING FORWARD AND DELIVERING A- NO! THE ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’ NEARLY SPELLED DOOM FOR RYAN’S CHANCES, BUT HE MANAGED TO ROLL HIMSELF BACK IN THE RING!

James Peters: IT DOESN’T MUCH MATTER WHEN THESE TWO NEW EDEN HOUNDS ARE HUNTING YOU DOWN! MINERVA STORMS TOWARDS WILSON AND HE EVADES THE ATTACK, SENDING MINERVA FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! SHE STUMBLES BACK TOWARDS HIM AND HE LIFTS HER UP FOR A GUTWRENCH SUPLEX! WHAT POWER FROM RYAN- BANG!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING WITH A JUMPING KNEE TO THE NOSE! NOW DRAKE, LIKE A LIGHTNING BOLT, MOVES TOWARDS WILSON AGAIN!

James Peters: THIS TIME RYAN SCOOPS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AND SWITCHES IT TO A POWERBOMB POSITION! WHAT RAW POWER AND STRENGTH FROM RYAN WILSON TO SUSPEND DRAKE IN THE AIR LIKE THIS THIS LATE IN THE MATCH!

Rich Russillo: RYAN SHOOTS HIM UP AND DRILLS DRAKE INTO THE CANVAS WITH A ‘CHEMIN DO CROIX’!!!! THAT CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB JUST FLATTENED DRAKE! NOW RYAN WILSON GRABS THE LEGS AND TURNS HIM OVER! SHARPSHOOTER! SHARPSHOOTER FROM WILSON AND THE CHAMPION HAS NOWHERE TO GO! DRAKE IS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, NO ROPES AND NO WEAPONS AROUND, HE’S ALL ALONE AND RYAN WILSON HAS THAT SHARPSHOOTER IN DEE-

James Peters: MINERVA GRABS THAT BARBED WIRE FROM WILSON’S HOCKEY STICK EARLIER AND NOW SHE’LL USE IT AGAINST HIM! SHE THROWS THE BARBED WIRE AROUND HIS FACE AND STARTS GRINDING IT AGAINST HIS EYES! MINERVA JUST SLASHING AND RIPPING THIS BARBED WIRE AGAINST THE FACE OF RYAN WILSON! THAT BARBED WIRE WRAPPED ALL AROUND HIS FACE AND HEAD, MINERVA THROWS HIM TO THE GROUND AND DRAKE PLANTS HIS HEAD TO THE GROUND WITH A ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’ THAT SHOVED ALL THAT BARBED WIRE STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF WILSON! A STOMP ON TOP OF THAT BARBED WIRE AND DRAKE LABORLY THROWS HIMSELF OVER TOP OF WILSON! DRAKE TO ELIMINATE RYAN WILSON!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

Bella Braxton: RYAN WILSON HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

(The crowd boos as Drake and Minerva lay in the ring, both covered in blood, but Drake looks as if he’d bathed in it.)

Rich Russillo: SOMEHOW, THE FIRST ELIMINATION IN THIS MATCH COMES AT THIS MARK, RYAN WILSON IS GONE! THE NEW EDEN ALLIANCE OVERCAME HIM AND THESE TWO ARE PROVING TOO MUCH FOR VOLTAGE’S BEST! TOO MUCH FOR EAW!

James Peters: You’re not kidding and they’re both now turning their attention back to Chris Elite as he still dangles from the side of the cage. His knee isn’t looking great, these two have been fixating on his left leg for a while now and he’s been putting all of his body weight on it by being trapped along that cage wall!

(Drake approaches Chris Elite and appears to grow more infuriated with every second he looks at him.)

RIch Russillo: DRAKE JUST SLAPPING CHRIS IN THE FACE AND ANGRILY YELLING IN HIS EAR, BANG! ANOTHER HARD SLAP AS DRAKE NOW GRABS HIS HEAD AND RAMS THE BACK OF IT AGAINST THE SIDE OF THE CHAMBER! AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, DRAKE CONTINUOUSLY JUST RUNNING THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE’S HEAD INTO THE STEEL CHAMBER WALL! HE’S IN A FRENZY AS HE JUST KEEPS RAMMING HIS HEAD INTO THE STEEL SIDES, HE’S SEEING RED, BOTH LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY! LOST IN A SEA OF RAGE, EXHAUSTION AND HIS OWN BLOOD, DRAKE KING IS LOSING IT!

James Peters: MINERVA NOW TURNS ON THE BRANDING IRON AND IT’S HEATING UP! THEY’RE GONNA BRAND CHRIS ELITE AND MAKE HIM FOREVER REMEMBER WHAT NEW EDEN DID TO HIM! DRAKE AND MINERVA, NEW EDEN ABOUT TO STICK THAT WHITE HOT BRAND TO THE SKIN OF CHRIS ELITE AS HE CRIES OUT IN PAIN, TRYING TO GRAB HIS LEFT KNEE, BUT HE’S STILL SUSPENDED ON THE SIDE OF THE CAGE!

Rich Russillo: OH NO, MINERVA IS HANDING THE BRAND TO DRAKE-

(Drake looks at the branding iron with a look of uncertainty, then his eyes travel to Minerva’s and Drake takes the branding iron from her.)

James Peters: Drake…just turned off the branding iron?! He tosses it into the ring AND THEN RIPS CHRIS ELITE BACK DOWN TO THE STEEL FLOOR! WHAT IS DRAKE DOING?! EVEN MINERVA HAS A LOOK OF CONFUSION ON HER FACE, BUT DRAKE’S MADE IT CLEAR HE DOESN’T WANT TO BRAND CHRIS ELITE! AT LEAST NOT HIS SKIN, BUT DRAKE MIGHT BE SATISFIED WITH TAKING THIS LEG OUT OF COMMISSION FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON! DRAKE KING DRAGS THE BODY OF CHRIS ELITE OVER TO THE GLASS POD AND- OH NO!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE JUST POSITIONED THE LEG OF ELITE IN THE DOORWAY OF THE POD- DRAKE KING SLAMS CHRIS ELITE’S KNEE IN THE DOOR OF THAT CHAMBER POD!!! OH MY GOD, HIS KNEE MADE A CRUNCHING SOUND AS THAT LEFT LEG GOT RIPPED APART BEING CRUSHED IN THAT DOOR! AND AGAIN DRAKE RAMS THE DOOR STRAIGHT INTO CHRIS’ LEG, TRAPPING IT BETWEEN THE DOOR AND THE POD, TRYING TO RIP HIS KNEE APART FOR THE REST OF HIS CAREER!

James Peters: CHRIS ELITE’S LEFT LEG IS TOAST AND DRAKE KING JUST PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON WHAT HAS BEEN AN EXCRUCIATING NIGHT FOR CHRIS ELITE! Drake, stumbling back and falling down onto the steel, wiping away the mask of blood on his face and from his eyes. Chris Elite is writing around in so much pain, he sees Minerva inside the ring, her forearm planted in the base of Jake Smith’s skull as both men are seemingly falling to New Eden. Chris Elite is trying to stand up- oh man, he just tried to put weight on that leg and fell straight back down to the ground in absolute agony. There’s no way he can continue this match, his leg is done.

(The referee walks over to Chris, trying to examine if he’s medically able to continue the match. Chris is pleading with the referee to continue but-)

Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL?!? DRAKE JUST SHOVED THE REFEREE AWAY AND GRABBED CHRIS ELITE AGAIN! HE’S UNHINGED, THIS STRUCTURE TRULY IS BRINGING OUT THE UTTER DEVIL INSIDE THIS MAN! HE PLANTS CHRIS HEAD WHERE HIS LEG ONCE WAS AND NOW, HE’S GONNA TRY AND SLAM CHRIS ELITE’S HEAD IN THE DOOR OF THAT POD! DON’T DO THIS, DRAKE, COME ON!

James Peters: DRAKE RIPS THAT DOOR BACK AND-

James Peters: THE REFEREE STEPS IN! HE JUST STEPPED IN AND CHRIS ELITE CAN’T CONTINUE, THE REFEREE WON’T LET HIM COMPETE ANYMORE!

Bella Braxton: DUE TO A MEDICAL DISQUALIFICATION, CHRIS ELITE HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

(The entire arena breaks out in boos as Drake King turns his attention to Justin Windgate and Jake Smith. A stretcher is being brought into the Chamber for Chris Elite, due to him being unable to walk.)

Rich Russillo: WAIT, WHAT IN THE-

James Peters: MINERVA JUST BULLDOZED OVER THE MEDICS CARRYING THE STRETCHER! THAT’S TOO FAR, THEY’RE NOT EVEN IN THIS MATCH! SHE’S NOW DRAGGING CHRIS ELITE TO THE CHAMBER DOOR AND SHE TOSSES HIM OUT ONTO THE STAIRS AS CHRIS ELITE TUMBLING DOWN AND SPLATTERS ONTO THE FLOOR! THE ULTIMATE DISRESPECT FROM MINERVA AS CHRIS IS COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY DEFENSELESS! THAT’S STANDARD CHARACTER FOR A NEW EDEN MEMBER, NO MORALS AND NO RESPECT!

Rich Russillo: I mean, Chris probably would have done the exact same to them. There’s no holds barred right now and New Eden isn’t expected to be anything but cruel. But even that was…extreme. Fits the bill, but still, sickening to watch something like that happen to a legend like Chris Elite. I mean, his season could be over, don’t bet on him performing next week against Harlow and Xavier.

James Peters: Certainly not, but Drake just shoved all the other medics out and slammed the chamber door shut behind him. There’s only two left to oppose New Eden, this isn’t good for either Jake or Justin! Jake Smith gets to his feet, just barely clinging to breath, trying to use the cage to keep him up, but Minerva is headed straight for him!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE AND JUSTIN WINDGATE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN THE EVENTS THAT TRANSPIRED BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM ONLY A FEW MONTHS AGO, THEY MEET IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! FACE TO FACE, THESE TWO ARE GIVING EACH OTHER A STARE OF DEATH! HERE THEY GO! JUSTIN FIRES FIRST WITH A HUGE PUNCH TO THE SIDE OF DRAKE’S HEAD, BUT DRAKE RETURNS WITH AN EVEN SHARPER FOREARM STRAIGHT TO THE CHIN! NOW JUSTIN GOES FOR A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE MIDSECTION OF DRAKE KING, BUT DRAKE AVOIDS THAT ATTACK AND CATCHES THE LEG! HE THROWS IT DOWN AND SPINS AROUND WITH A DISCUS ELBOW THAT ABSOLUTELY TRUCKS JUSTIN AND DROPS HIS BODY TO THE CANVAS LIKE DEADWEIGHT!

James Peters: OUTSIDE THE RING ON THE OTHER SIDE, MINERVA AND JAKE SMITH ARE LIKE TWO DOGS GOING AT IT! THEY’RE BOTH BEATEN AND BATTERED, BUT JAKE IS WORSE OFF AND HE’S STRUGGLING TO HANG ON! HE’S BEEN PUT THROUGH LITERAL HELL TONIGHT AND HIS CAREER WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AFTER THIS MATCH, REGARDLESS OF RESULT!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA TRYING TO BEAT JAKE SMITH TO A PULP, SHE’S STOMPING A HOLE STRAIGHT THROUGH HIS CHEST RIGHT NOW! PEELING HIM BACK TO HIS FEET, A HUGE PUNCH TO THE JAW AS IT STUMBLES JAKE BACKWARDS, LEANING AGAINST THE POD AND HIS EYES ROLLING ALL OVER THE PLACE, HE’S RATTLED BAD! MINERVA ACES TOWARDS HIM LIKE A CHARIOT AND NOTHING WILL STOP HER-

James Peters: JAKE SMITH WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN, HE DROPPED TO THE GROUND AND MINERVA RAN STRAIGHT INTO THE GLASS POD AND BROKE RIGHT THROUGH IT, COLLAPSING DOWN TO THE FLOOR AND BEING SURROUNDED BY A PILE OF RUBBLE! OH MY GOD, MINERVA JUST TOOK HERSELF OUT AND JAKE SMITH IS SOMEHOW ALIVE! MINERVA WENT HIGH RISK, SHE PAID THE PRICE FOR IT!

Rich Russillo: BACK IN THE RING, DRAKE MOVES IN ON JUSTIN, BUT HE’S STUNG BY A SUPERKICK FROM THE ‘XTREME CLASSIC’!!! RIGHT ON THE BUZZER AS DRAKE IS HURT BAD! JUSTIN GOES TO THE CORNER AND COMES CHARGING OUT WITH A SPEAR THAT- NO! DRAKE TURNED IT INTO AN “ASCENSION’!!! AN ‘ASCENSION’ EVEN AFTER THAT SUPERKICK!!! A FLASHBACK TO BLOODSPORT WHEN DRAKE COUNTERED WITH THIS SAME MOVE, HE KNOWS JUSTIN WINDGATE TOO WELL!!

James Peters: JAKE SMITH NOW IN THE FOLD WITH A SHINING WIZARD TO THE SKULL OF DRAKE KING! HE TURNED HIM INSIDE OUT WITH THAT SHINING WIZARD AND DRAKE ROLLED UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE! JAKE SMITH SEES HIS CHANCE TO CAPITALIZE ON DRAKE’S HANDIWORK! HE TAKES OUT WINDGATE AND HE’S ONE STEP CLOSER TO GLORY!

Rich Russillo: JAKE SMITH LIFTS JUSTIN WINDGATE UP, LIGHTNING FAST MOVEMENTS FROM JAKE AND HE CORKS JUSTIN’S NECK AND HEAD TO THE MAT WITH A ‘STARMAKER’!!! A ‘STARMAKER’ AS JUSTIN LOOKS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT AND JAKE COVERS HIM FOR THE ELIMINATION!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

James Peters: JUSTIN WINDGATE POWERS OUT! HOLY HELL, HOW DID HE POWER OUT OF THAT ‘STARMAKER’ OH MY GOD, HE’S STILL IN THIS!!!

Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME!

Persephone: NO, IT’S NOT! ALL THAT MARIJUANA HAS FUZZED OVER HIS BRAIN AND MAKES HIM IMMUNE TO DAMAGE I BET, SOMEONE FIND HIS PAINTBALL GUN AND JAM IT DOWN HIS THROAT!

Rich Russillo: HE’S SOMEHOW STILL IN THIS MATCH AND JAKE SMITH CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HE DIDN’T JUST END JUSTIN’S NIGHT! JAKE KNOWS ONE MORE BIG ATTACK AND SURELY, SURELY IT’S OVER FOR JUSTIN! HE DRAGS HIM UP TO A VERTICAL BASE AND HOOKS ONE ARM! HE SUSPENDS HIM IN THE AIR, LOOKING FOR ‘MISS MURDER’-

James Peters: JUSTIN PUTS A THUMB IN THE EYE OF JAKE AND HE’S FORCED TO DROP WINDGATE! ALL IS FAIR IN THIS MATCH AND WINDGATE KNOWS IF HE’S GONNA SURVIVE, HE’S GOTTA DO WHAT HE’S GOTTA DO! THIS MAN IS A TRUE VET AND WON’T GO OUT QUIETLY!!!! NOW IT’S JUSTIN WINDGATE WHO TURNS THINGS AROUND AND ABSOLUTELY STUNS JAKE SMITH WITH A RIGHT HAND FROM HELL! NOW GRABBING JAKE’S NECK AND RUNNING UP THE TURNBUCKLES, ‘RUN IT UPPPPPPP’!!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!!! JAKE SMITH USED THE POSITION AND TWISTED JUSTIN WINDGATE’S HEAD DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A MODIFIED ‘STARMAKER’ IN MIDAIR! WHAT A COUNTER FROM JAKE, WHO DRAGS JUSTIN TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND DRAPES HIMSELF OVER WINDGATE, SURELY THIS HAS GOT TO BE ALL SHE WROTE!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Bella Braxton: JUSTIN WINDGATE HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

(EAW Crowd erupts in boos as Jake Smith is too exhausted to even acknowledge or taunt them. He can’t even lift himself off the canvas, just crawling to the bottom turnbuckle, trying to find even the smallest bit of sanctuary in this match.)

James Peters: What a showing tonight for Justin Windgate, whenever he competes, you can guarantee that he’s going to display the heart of a lion and a champion, win or lose, he comes to compete. He’s given us some of our most memorable matches thus far this season and he just did again tonight. Have to give your hat to a man that always shows up.

Rich Russillo: I agree, but I don’t think Jake realizes what he’s done. With Justin Windgate out of this match, that means it’s just him, Minerva and Drake King left…That’s the opposite of what Jake wants and it seems as if he’s just starting to realize it. There’s a cold and nervous expression on the face of Jake Smith, he’s understanding now that Minerva and Drake King are the only two left and to face both of them by himself is going to be the hardest hill he’s climbed tonight, which is saying something.

Persephone: He’s toast, he doesn’t stand any chance at all. I mean, look at this, Drake and Minerva are both coming to and realizing this same thing, Jake just grabbed that branding iron for protection, but it won’t matter much. He’s about to get spanked and put away like he always does, a loser that loses once again. Nothing new.

James Peters: Jake Smith is armed with that branding iron as Drake and Minerva start to creep towards him! JAKE SMITH KNOWS THAT RIGHT NOW IT’S ALL OR NOTHING! HE RUNS FORWARD AND AMBUSHES DRAKE FIRST! DRIVING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND UNLOADING WITH THE BRANDING IRON! HE’S SMASHING IT OVER DRAKE, WHO’S TRYING TO COVER UP AND DEFEND HIMSELF, HE CAN’T EVEN SEE THERE’S STILL SO MUCH BLOOD IN HIS EYES AND HAIR, HE’S A MESS!

Rich Russillo: JAKE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO MINERVA, WHO GETS IN THE RING AND HE SWINGS THE BRANDING IRON AGAIN! SHE TAKES THE SHOT TO THE RIBS, BUT MANAGES TO CATCH IT AS WELL! SHE’S GOT THE BRANDING IRON AND DRAKE BLASTS JAKE FROM BEHIND! TRUCKING JAKE AND SENDING HIM BARRELING TO THE CANVAS! THEY’RE BOTH UNLOADING WITH A FLURRY OF PUNCHES AND KICKS NOW! STOMPS TO THE CHEST AND ARMS OF JAKE SMITH, HE’S IN DIRE NEED OF A MIRACLE RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: HE TRIES TO LUNGE UP AND GRAB DRAKE BY THE HAIR, NOW PUTTING A THUMB INTO THE EYE OF MINERVA! JAKE DOING ANY AND EVERYTHING TO MOUNT SOME OFFENSE HERE! DRAKE BREAKS FREE- BUT JAKE STINGS HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! A BLISTERING SUPERKICK THAT HAS DRAKE WOBBLED! JAKE CATCHES HIM AND GRABS HIS NECK! SETTING DRAKE UP FOR THE ‘STARMAKER’!!!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA UP AGAIN AND SHE WELCOMES JAKE SMITH TO ‘THE DARK’!!! SHE JUST SPIT BLACK MIST IN HIS FACE AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE THAT CAME FROM! SHE SPIT BLACK MIST EVERYWHERE AND JAKE IS BLINDED! HE CAN’T SEE AND NOW MINERVA FINALLY AGAIN SEES HER WHIP LAYING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! SHE TRIPS JAKE TO THE GROUND AND GRABS HER WHIP-

James Peters: LOOK AT JAKE! JAKE SCOOPS UP THE ONCOMING MINERVA AND DELIVERS AN USHIGOROSHI THAT DROPS HER TO THE GROUND! JAKE SMITH SOMEHOW MOUNTING AN INCREDIBLE ATTACK RIGHT NOW, HE’S DOING IT, HE’S DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE! HE’S WALKING THE WIRE BETWEEN BUILDINGS AND NOT FALLEN YET! DRAKE KING IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, JAKE SMITH GRABS MINERVA’S WHIP AND HEADS FOR THE TURNBUCKLES! HE’S SCALING THEM AND ASCENDING TO THE VERY TOP-NO! HE’S GOING TO THE TOP OF THE POD WITH THAT WHIP!

Rich Russillo: HE’S STANDING ON TOP OF THE POD, BUT DRAKE IS ON HIS HEELS! HE’S RIGHT BEHIND HIM AND JAKE IS SHREDDING UP THOSE HANDS OF DRAKE WITH CRACKS OF THE WHIP, BUT THE CHAMPION DOESN’T CARE! DRAKE’S MIND IS LOST AND HE’S COMPLETELY OUT OF IT RIGHT NOW, HE’S GOING TO DO ANYTHING NECESSARY TO STOP JAKE SMITH FROM WINNING THIS MATCH AND WRITING THE END OF THEIR STORY TOGETHER! MINERVA ON HER WAY UP THERE TOO, BUT JAKE STOMPS ON DRAKE’S HEAD AND STUNS HIM BAD ON TOP OF THAT POD! JAKE HAS TO ACT NOW, HE NEEDS SOMETHING BIG!

James Peters: WAIT, WHAT IS HE?!? HE’S TYING THAT WHIP AROUND THE NECK OF DRAKE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING, JAKE?!?! JAKE SMITH HAS THE END OF THE WHIP TIED IN A KNOT AROUND DRAKE’S NECK AND HE’S TYING THE OTHER END TO THE…TO THE CAGE!??! AS HIGH AS JAKE CAN GET ON THE SIDE OF THAT CHAMBER, HE’S TYING TO THE OTHER END OF THE WHIP, OH MY GOD, JAKE, DON’T DO WHAT I THINK YOU’RE GONNA DO!!!! NO!!! DON’T!!!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA GETS TO THE TOP OF THE POD-

Persephone: HOLY FUCKING SHIT-

James Peters: JAKE SHOVES DRAKE OFF THE TOP OF THE CAGE AND TRIES TO HANG HIM FROM MINERVA’S WHP- OH MY GOD-

Rich Russillo: –

James Peters: MINERVA TACKLES JAKE OFF THE TOP AND GRABS THE ROPE AS THEY ALL FALL TO THE STEEL GRATE BELOW AND SNAP THAT WHIP UNDER THE WEIGHT AS DRAKE’S NECK IS RELEASED AND THEY SMASHED TO THE FLOOR!!!! OH MY GOD, JAKE SMITH JUST TRIED TO KILL DRAKE KING, THAT WAS TRULY MURDEROUS AND I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT JAKE WOULD DEVOLVE TO THAT DEPTH TO WIN THIS MATCH.

Rich Russillo: MINERVA SAVED DRAKE’S LIFE, THANK GOD SHE GOT THERE WHEN SHE DID, HAD SHE NOT SNAPPED THAT WHIP UNDER ALL THAT TENSION, DRAKE KING WOULDN’T BE HERE WITH US RIGHT NOW, MY GOD!!!

Persephone: That was insane, like, literally insane.

James Peters: Minerva is managing to get to a knee and she knows that if she’s to finish this match for all intents and purposes, it’s right now! They just fell from the top of the pod all the way to the floor and Drake King is out of it, but so is Jake Smith! Minerva needs to end Jake Smith now and solidify the win for New Eden! She knows it and she’s got Jake by his trunks, doing anything she can to drag him back into the ring!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA HAS HER EYES ON JAKE SMITH, THERE’S NOBODY HERE NOW TO STOP HER! IT’S MINERVA’S TIME TO SHINE! SHE’S EYEING THE ‘ATLAS FALLS’!!!! MINERVA, FOR THE WIN, FOR THE WORLD, FOR NEW EDEN, FOR EVERYTHING-

(The audience’s attention shifts to the top of the stage as Minerva drops Jake Smith to her feet and looks up at the stage.)

Rich Russillo: IT’S BIG BHRIS! IT’S CHRIS ELITE! HE’S HOBBLING HIS WAY ONTO THE STAGE, HE JUST FELL DOWN, BUT HE’S GONNA STUMBLE HIS WAY BACK DOWN TO THIS RING IF HE HAS TO! I WONDER IF HE IS COMING OUT HERE TO EXERCISE THE POWER OF THE GAWD CONTRACT??? OH MY GOD, WHAT HE IS ABOUT TO DO?!?!

James Peters: CHRIS ELITE KNOWS THAT’S HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER, HE ISN’T GOING TO LET THINGS END THE SAME WAY FOR HIM AS THEY DID FOR CHRIS! HE’S GOT THE GAWD CONTRACT AND HE’S GONNA USE IT!

Rich Russillo: –

Persephone: YES!

CRACK!

James Peters: I- WHAT THE, WHO IS- WHAT THE HELL?!?!? MYLES JUST CAME STORMING DOWN THE RAMP AND SMASHED THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE OVER THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE! MYLES SMASHED THE BRIEFCASE OVER CHRIS ELITE’S BACK AND NOW MYLES IS DRAGGING HIM DOWN THE RAMP AND NEXT TO THE CHAMBER! HE’S GONNA FORCE CHRIS ELITE TO WATCH HIS PARTNER FALL! THIS IS CRUELTY TO A NEW EXTENT!

(Drake King reaches down and pulls a small chain and padlock from his boot, smiling at Chris Elite as he approaches the chamber door.)

Rich Russillo: DRAKE HAS A PADLOCK AND HE JUST LOCKED THE CHAMBER DOOR SHUT WITH THE LOCK AND CHAIN! NOW NOBODY IS GETTING IN THERE! CHRIS ELITE IS FORCED TO WATCH AT RINGSIDE AS MYLES IS PRYING HIS HEAD AGAINST THE OUTSIDE OF THE CAGE AND MINERVA LIFTS JAKE SMITH UP! SHE DRIVES HIM BACK DOWN WITH AN ‘ATLAS FALLS’ THAT TOOK ANY LIFE LEFT JAKE HAD! HIS BODY IS DONE AND HE’S NOT MOVING! HE CAN’T EVEN GET MEDICALLY DISQUALIFIED BECAUSE NOBODY CAN GET INTO THAT DAMN CHAMBER! CHRIS ELITE IS BEING FORCED TO WATCH THIS HEARTBREAKING DISASSEMBLY OF HIS PARTNER, WHO IS JUST BEING MAULED AND TORTURED RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: CHRIS WANTS TO GET IN THERE AND FIGHT SO BAD, HE CAN’T MOVE BECAUSE MYLES HAS HIM PINNED AGAINST THE SIDE OF THE CHAMBER AND HIS LEG IS SHOT AS IS! HE COULDSN’T EVEN WALK DOWN THAT RAMP TONIGHT, LET ALONE FIGHT OFF MYLES!

(Drake tilts his head into the air, wipes the blood and sweat from his eyes and runs his hands through his hair, then his head pans down and he zeroes in on Jake Smith.)

James Peters: DRAKE KING FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING, HE STOMPS JAKE’S HEAD INTO THE GROUND WITH ONE FINAL ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’ THAT DIDN’T EVEN FLINCH JAKE! HE WAS ALREADYOUT, THAT WAS JUST NEW EDEN’S CHERRY ON TOP! THEY’RE JUST TRYING TO END HIS LIFE AND CAREER RIGHT NOW!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING STEPS ASIDE AND MINERVA DROPS DOWN ON TOP OF JAKE SMITH. SHE SMILES A COLD, BLOODY SMILE AT CHRIS ELITE AS THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT JAKE OUT AND END THIS MISERY!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Bella Braxton: JAKE SMITH HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

(The crowd boos as Minerva rolls off Jake, and Drake helps her back to her feet.)

Rich Russillo: I mean, that was…unbelievable. We’ve been witness to a lot of violence this season, but what these men and Minerva just put each other through is vile. Jake Smith and Chris Elite are in no way going to be cleared to compete next week and I don’t see how they can for the next few months. They’ve both suffered potentially career ending injuries tonight-

James Peters: MAN, NOW MYLES RUNS CHRIS ELITE INTO THE CAGE, FACE FIRST AND CHRIS FALLS TO THE FLOOR, NO WAY TO DEFEND HIMSELF OR FIGHT BACK, THIS ISN’T RIGHT! MYLES DROPS THE BRIEFCASE AND PICK CHRIS ON HIS SHOULDERS!!! THE ‘DE FACTO’ ON THE FLOOR FROM MYLES JUST ABSOLUTELY CRUSHES CHRIS ELITE AND ADDS SO MUCH INSULT TO INJURY! THIS IS HEINOUS, ABSOLUTELY EVIL ON THE PART OF NEW EDEN!

(The camera pans back to the ring, where Drake and Minerva are seen coming eye to eye. They stand in the center of the ring and they embrace one another with a handshake.)

James Peters: Man, we know what’s about to happen. Exactly what they said would happen. Minerva’s about to leave the chamber and give the win to Drake King, meaning the champion will retain his title after such a violent, bloody and hard fought war on every side.

Minerva: (off-mic) No one but New Eden.

( She cracks a grin at the man whose been by her side since February. )

Drake King: (off-mic) No one but New Eden.

( Drake hands Minerva the keys to the padlock and she turns around to leave. )

( Drake, however, grabs her hand and pulls her back towards him. Minerva, a look of confusion on her face, looks back at Drake as his face changes to a darker and more empty expression than we’ve ever seen from this man.)

Drake King: (off-mic) This Extreme Elimination Chamber match never should have happened…

( Drake rips the keys from Minerva’s hand and tosses them towards Jake Smith’s body. )

Drake King: (off-mic) This never should have happened.

Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD, DRAKE JUST BLASTED MINERVA WITH A LARIAT AND NOW IS BEATING THE HOLY HELL OUT OF HER!!!! DRAKE HAS LOST IT, HE’S BEATING THE LIFE OUT OF MINERVA, HIS TEAMMATE, HIS PARTNER, NEW EDEN!!! DRAKE IS GOING CRAZY AND JUST RAVAGING MINERVA WITH A STORM OF PUNCHES AND ELBOWS!!! A SEA OF BLOOD IS FLOWING FROM THE FACE OF MINERVA AS DRAKE CONTINUES TO JUST UNLEASH THIS ANGER ON HER AND MYLES IS SCREAMING FROM THE OUTSIDE!!! HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!

(The crowd explodes into shock as Myles sprints around the ring and bangs on the chamber.)

James Peters: DRAKE IS STOMPING ON THE CHEST AND SKULL OF MINERVA AS MYLES IS FREAKING OUT! HE’S PLEADING WITH DRAKE TO STOP, ABSOLUTELY BEGGING AND CRYING OUT FOR DRAKE TO STOP THIS ATTACK! BUT THERE’S NO REASONING WITH THIS MAN, DRAKE KING IS OFF THE RAILS!!! MYLES IS BANGING ON THE CHAMBER DOOR AND TRYING TO PRY THIS PADLOCK OFF, BUT HE CAN’T DO IT!!!

(Drake King throws the bloody mess that is Minerva to the canvas and drags her closer to the chamber door, right in front of Myles. Drake walks over to the branding iron, picks it up and then tilts his head to the sky, taking in deep inhalation and now turning his attention back to Myles and Minerva.)

Rich Russillo: COME ON DRAKE, THIS IS HOW MANY MONTHS OF DEDICATION AND PARTNERSHIP YOU’RE SHATTERING HERE! EAW’S MOST DOMINANT AND COMMANDING FACTION HAS EXPLODED INTO A MILLION PIECES AND DRAKE KING IS ABOUT TO SET THEM ALL ON FIRE! HE TURNS ON THE BRAND AND APPROACHES MINERVA.

Myles: DRAKE, PLEASE DON’T DO THIS, I’M BEGGING YOU! PLEASE, DRAKE, PLEASE DON’T! OH MY GOD, DRAKE, STOP! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS??

(Drake stares deeply down at MInerva, a look of almost sorrow on his face, then gazing at Myles and that look turns into pure anger and hatred.)

James Peters: DRAKE, DON’T! NOOOOOO!!!!!! DRAKE DRIVES THE BRANDING IRON INTO MINERVA’S SHOULDER! SHADES OF THE SICK FUCKING ACT HE UNLEASHED ON DARCY MAY MORGAN AT THIS VERY EVEN LAST YEAR! DRAKE JUST BRANDED THE WOMAN HE ONCE SHARED EVERYTHING WITH!!!!!! SOMEONE STOP THIS!!

Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD, SOMEONE STOP HIM! SERIOUSLY, SOMEONE FIND A WAY TO GET THAT DOOR OPEN!

(Myles is exploding in anger and emotion, he can’t take his eyes away from this horror that’s in front of him.)

James Peters: MINERVA IS WRITHING AND WINCING IN PAIN, SCREAMING BARELY, BUT SO BEATEN, SHE CAN BARELY EVEN SCREAM! DRAKE KING REMOVES THE BRAND FROM HER SKIN AND I CAN SEE THE SKIN BOILING ON HER BODY FROM THAT BRAND! JESUS CHRIST, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?!?

(Drake King creeps over to Myles with an unapologetic and spiteful look on his face.)

Drake King: (off-mic) You should have never allowed her insolence.

(Myles sprints up the ramp, looking on the side of the stage in the crew equipment for anything to open the chamber.)

Rich Russillo: MYLES HAS A PAIR OF BOLT CUTTERS! HE HAS A PAIR OF BOLT CUTTERS! AND NOW HE SPRINTS BACK DOWN THE RAMP- HE’S TOO LATE-

James Peters: DRAKE KING RUNS TOWARDS MINERVA AND CRUSHES HER SKILL WITH A ‘BOOK OF DRISTIANITY’!!! THE ‘BOOK OF DRISTIANIITY’ KILLS OFF THE LAST REMAINS OF NEW EDEN AS DRAKE FALLS INTO THE COVER OF MINERVA.

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

DING! DING! DING!

Braxton: MINERVA HAS BEEN ELIMINATED! THEREFORE YOU WINNER AND STILL EAW WORLD CHAMPION… DRAKE KING!!!!

( But no one is listening to Bella Braxton. )

Rich Russillo: DRAKE JUST RETAINED HIS TITLE, BUT MYLES CLIPS THE DOORS OPEN FINALLY AND NOW THE CHAMBER DOOR IS OPEN! MYLES SOARS INTO THE CHAMBER WITH THE BRIEFCASE AND SLAMS IT INTO DRAKE’S FACE! CRUSHING DRAKE KING WITH IT AND NOW BEATING THE EVERY LAST BREATH OUT OF DRAKE KIN G IN A BLIND FRENZY! OVER AND OVER MYLES DRIVES THE BRIEFCASE DOWN INTO THE FACE OF DRAKE KING!

Persephone: :mjcry: I want Rex to fight for me like this one day.

James Peters: DRAKE DESERVES EVERY BIT OF THE BEATING HE IS GETTING RIGHT NOW! MYLES IS SEEING RED! ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS WHAT DRAKE KING JUST DID TO MINERVA!!!!

(The crowd somewhat cheers, but also remains still in disbelief of what’s unfolding right now.)

James Peters: MYLES SHARING THE BLOOD FROM DRAKE KING’S BODY NOW AND HE IS LANDING EVERY LAST BLOW WITH VICIOUS AND MURDEROUS INTENT! ELBOWS AND PUNCHES ONTO THE FACE OF DRAKE, PRESSING HIS FOREARM ON DRAKE’S THROAT AND NOW DROPPING A SHARP ELBOW ONTO DRAKE’S FOREHEAD! MORE PUNCHES AND JUST EVERY LAST BLOW MYLES CAN LAND BEFORE EXHAUSTING HIMSELF, FALLING BACK TO THE CANVAS AND GRABBING THE LEG OF MINERVA.

Rich Russillo: MYLES DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR HOW TO FEEL RIGHT NOW, HIS WORLD WAS JUST SHATTERED! THE WOMAN HE LOVES WAS JUST BRUTALLY ATTACKED TO THE POINT OF DEATH BY A MAN HE PUT HIS GREATEST FAITH IN! THEY TRUSTED DRAKE KING FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

(Myles looks at Drake, then he looks back at Minerva…a look of sheer rage boils in the face of Myles as he grabs the Cash In The Vault Briefcase and runs out of the ring.)

Rich Russillo: WAIT..WAIT…I THINK IT’S TIME! I THINK HE’S DOING IT! ALKDDKODLDLFOFLLFLFO, I THINK HE’S CASHING IN!

(Myles tells the referee to ring the bell and that he’s now cashing in the Cash In The Vault Contract.)

James Peters: HE IS! MYLES IS CASHING IN! MYLES IS CASHING IN ON DRAKE, DRAKE KING IS DONE AND BEATEN, MYLES IS ABOUT TO CASH IN AND TAKE THE TITLE!

(The crowd erupts in cheers and excitement as Myles runs back into the chamber.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, MYLES IS CASHING IN HIS CASH IN THE VAULT CONTRACT! MEANING THAT THIS MATCH IS FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPPPPPP!!!

DING! DING! DING!

James Peters: OH MY GOD, MYLES SLIDES INSIDE THE RING AND HE BRINGS THE BRIEFCASE WITH HIM! HE SLIDES IT IN THE RING AND NOW SCOOPS DRAKE UP IN PUMP-HANDLE POSITION! HE LAYS DRAKE KING OUT WITH A DE FACTO ON THE BRIEFCASE!!!! HE SLAMMED DRAKE FACE FIRST WITH THAT DE FACTO, RIGHT ONTO THE BRIEFCASE AND NOW HE KICKS IT TO THE SIDE, DROPS DOWN AND COVERS DRAKE KING! MYLES FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

DING! DING! DING!

Rich Rusillo: OH MY GOD, MYLES DID IT, MYLES IS THE NEW EAW WORLD CHAMPION!!!!!

Persephone: HOLY SHIT!!

James peters: OH MY GOD, WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, HERE IS YOUR NEWWWWW EAW WORLLDDDDD CHAMPIONNNNNNNNNNNNN, MYLLLLLLLESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

(The crowd cheers as Myles stands over the lifeless, broken, bloodied and beaten body of Drake King. Myles is handed the title by the referee, but he only stares at it for a few seconds with empty eyes. He drops the EAW World Championship onto the chest of Drake King and spits on him.)

Myles: (off-mic) I hope it was all worth it you glorified piece of fucking garbage. Fuck you.

(Myles turns away from Drake, picking Minerva up in his arms and cradling her. Myles is beside himself as the love of his life is laying limply in his arms. Very gently, Myles carries Minerva out of the chamber, walking her down the steps. Her arms unconsciously swing beside Myles as he carries her up the ramp, doing as much as he can to keep people from gawking at her. The fact the only thing on his mind right now is preserving his girlfriend’s dignity is telling at how much the relationships he’s built means to Myles and how little something like the EAW World Championship means to him.)

James Peters: I-

Rich Russillo: Truly, there is nothing to say. Oh my god.

( Loud sniffling is heard as Persephone, of all fucking people, is ugly crying at the scene of love and devotion that just played out in front of 70,000 plus people. )

(Myles cradles Minerva tightly as he walks her up the ramp and through the curtain.)

(The shot fades to black.)

(Promotional ad for Cleopatra versus Holly Arrow at Pain for Pride.)

(The camera cuts back to ringside as “Mona Lisa” by Lil Wayne ft. Kendrick Lamar starts playing throughout the arena. The Phoenix crowd starts to loudly boo as Cleopatra enters the arena. She really could care less what the fans think of her as she smirks and makes her way to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen! Please welcome EAW Hall of Famer and THE GREATEST VIXEN THAT EVER LIVED! CLEOPATRA!

James Peters: Here comes the lovely Cleopatra. She’s heading down to the ring with a purpose and nobody needs a hint on why exactly she’s coming out here. She only has one person on her mind and that’s Holly Arrow.

Persephone: It must be recess time at the Old Folks home and this old bittie must have taken that chance to use her walker and run away. Of course she found her way here to Phoenix and is going to bore us with one of her old lady rants.

Rich Russillo: Holly and Cleo were tag team partners last week and these two looked to be on the verge of victory when a small miscue happened and Cleo didn’t like that one bit. The two ended up outside the ring and fighting as they lost the match by count out. At the end of the night, Holly ended up getting the one up on Cleo and it’s obvious to see that Cleo is not happy.

(Cleo walks over to the timekeeper’s area and snatches the microphone from Bella Braxton before entering the ring. Once in the ring, she waits for a moment after her music cuts off before she decides to speak.)

Cleopatra: Yeah yeah yeah. We all saw what went down last week between myself and Holly Arrow. Let me tell you all right now that I am not just upset about what she did. I am beyond pissed off about it. I gave her a chance to have a high profile match at Pain for Pride match and this is how the skank repays me. By trying to rip my head off. But let’s be honest here. I was being more than generous when I laid Holly’s dumbass out and challenged her to a match at Pain for Pride. Why is that? Because at that point in time, Holly still had a chance to back out of the match altogether.

(The crowd boos Cleo after that snarky remark about the match.)

Cleopatra: You know what? Little Miss Holly still could have found her way into a much more fitting match for herself at Pain for Pride. But this delusional little girl is so stubborn that she insists on facing someone who is completely out of her league. Actually, me and her aren’t even in the same galaxy when it comes to skill. Maybe she does have potential. Maybe she could even one day become a good competitor, but she does not belong in a Pain for Pride match against me. I have given Holly more than ample time to get out of this match. I tried to be nice, but the time for me being nice is over as is the time she has to get out of facing her. It’s too late now, especially after what she did to me last week. Because of that, I promise to the entire world that I am going to show Holly Arrow just how wide the gap is between her and me. I’m going to make sure that the dumb bitch regrets ever coming back to Voltage.

(The tone in Cleo’s voice is getting more serious by the second. She motions for the camera person to come closer to the point where she is glaring right into the camera.)

Cleopatra: Holly, I really hope you are listening to me back there because I really want you to hear this. This is MY world. This is CLEOPATRA’S WORLD! Holly, sweetheart, you’re just another bitch living in my world. At Pain for Pride, I am going to force you to bow down and respect a legend like myself. I’m not a Hall of Famer for nothing. Bitch, there’s a reason why I am called THE GREATEST VIXEN THAT EVER LI….

(Before Cleo can finish her sentence, “you should see me in a crown” by Billie Eilish starts to play as Holly Arrow enters the arena to a mixed reaction from the crowd, but it is a little more positive than normal, especially after hearing what Cleo has been saying. Holly doesn’t look too happy as she heads to the ring.)

James Peters: Speaking of Holly Arrow, here she comes down to the ring. To take a very old classic line, I think business is about to pick up right here and right now.

Persephone: First off, never say that line again. The only reason it’s a classic is because you are about as old as it is. Second, why the hell do we have the return of Batbitch on Voltage. Shouldn’t she be hanging upside down in a cave sleeping somewhere.

Rich Russillo: Come on and stop that, Seph. Cleopatra has been ridiculing Holly ever since Holly came back to Voltage after her injury. Holly can only take so much of that type of treatment before she’s had enough. From the look on her face, she has definitely had more than she can handle.

Persephone: Probably not the first time someone has said that about Holly from what I heard.

James Peters: That’s enough from you, Seph! Holly Arrow is a competitor who has only improved every time she stepped into an EAW ring. Pain for Pride is one of the biggest matches of her career and she is focused to make the most of this opportunity.

(Holly takes her turn to grab a microphone before entering the ring. As she enters the ring she takes a look at Cleo as her entrance music fades off. Holly shakes her head before lifting the microphone to her mouth to speak.)

Holly Arrow: Cleo. Luckily for you, I was listening to everything you had to say. I’ve heard enough of what you’ve been saying and now I am out here to get a few things off my chest.

(Cleo has a look of amusement on her face wondering what her opponent really has to say before Holly continues.)

Holly Arrow: Do I need to remind you that all I have wanted was just the opportunity to face somebody in the upper echelon of EAW history? The opportunity to compete with someone with as big of a name as you. This all started because you had clouded vision, Cleo. You couldn’t see how good of a competitor I truly am. All you have done is make remarks and attack me. I mean you even tried to aggravate my injury again. What depths are you willing to go to all because I am not the type of pushover as you think I am, Cleo? I have absolutely NO regrets for attacking you last week. I am here to tell you loud and clear that last week was just the beginning. Cleo, at Pain for Pride, I absolutely can not wait to get my chance to finally put you down. I don’t know about you, but the thought of getting yet one more victory over someone who is both a Hall of Famer AND a former member of the Queen’s Court sounds absolutely amazing. This is a golden opportunity for me and I am not going to let it pass me by. I’ll see you at Pain for Pride.

(Holly drops her microphone as her music starts to play up, but what she doesn’t see is what Cleo is preparing to do.)

James Peters: Holly had a lot to say about that and how big of an opportunity Pain for Pride is, but…. HOLD ON A SECOND! CLEO LOOKING TO TAKE A CHEAP SHOT ON HOLLY FROM BEHIND!

Persephone: That ought to teach Batbitch. Never turn your back on your opponent. No matter how old she is. You’d think that Holly would have learned that lesson a long time ago.

Rich Russillo: I think Holly did learn that lesson BECAUSE I THINK HOLLY SAW CLEO’S ATTACK COMING! HOLLY QUICKLY TURNS AROUND AND GRABS CLEO’S FOREARM!

James Peters: LOOK AT CLEO’S EYES BUGGING OUT! SHE DID NOT SEE THAT COMING! CLEO TRYING TO GET HER ARM FREE! HOLLY LETS CLEO FREE, BUT SHE COMES BACK WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN! CLEO IS DOWN AND HOLLY IS THROWING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH AT CLEO!

Persephone: Kids, take note because this is exactly how the gussied up old slut dinosaur became extinct. Batbitch better be careful because she might break something of that old bag.

(Cleo has reversed the mount and is trying to beat on Holly as we see EAW referees and officials run down to the ring and break up the fight.)

Rich Russillo: It should be to no surprise that these two would end up in a fight. It is starting to get personal between Holly and Cleo. THE OFFICIALS ARE TRYING TO BREAK THESE TWO APART, BUT THE LADIES HAVE HANDFULS OF HAIR TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIGHT CONTINUES!

Crowd: LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT!

James Peters: The crowd wants to see them fight some more, but it looks like that they will have to wait until Pain for Pride to see Cleopatra and Holly Arrow continue beating the hell out of each other. This has gotten personal and I can’t wait to see these two officially go at it.

(The final shot shows Cleopatra and Holly still being held back by referees and officials as they try to break free and get their hands on each other. Cleo and Holly are screaming at each other as the scene cuts elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: THE SMITH RESIDENCE – ATHERTON, CALIFORNIA]

(Sunday Night Voltage comes back to a scene different from the Phoenix Suns Arena, instead heading 700 miles northwest to Atherton located in California. The bright blue sky shows that it’s mid-day, leading to the assumption that this segment is pre-recorded as the camera goes over to show a visibly wealthy neighborhood. It focuses on a house with a figure standing outside, and as the camera pans closer that person is revealed to be none other than Jake Smith. He’s seen in his sleepwear, with a cup of coffee in his hands which he casually sips on while looking over at the cameraman that approaches him. He gives a light smile before turning to walk back inside the house, seeming to want to give the viewers at home a welcome to his humble abode.)

Jake Smith: Sorry for the late welcome, I’m a bit of a late sleeper. Spent my night watching movies in the theatre room so you know… I’m not all there right now, but I’ll try to make you feel at home. I get that you’re not here to see my house or anything, but you know what they say, mi casa tu casa… I think I got that right.

(Jake opens the door to his house and walks in, immediately heading over to the living room and plopping a seat on a sofa. He places his coffee down on the coffee table in front of him before taking a long stretch and yawning. He looks towards the camera and is about to speak until he’s interrupted by someone.)

???: BORK! BORK! BORK!

(Josh The Dog is seen striding in and leaping onto the sofa, laying down on Jake’s lap as Jake looks down with a smile on his face.)

Jake Smith: I’m sure everyone knows Josh, what a loveable boy. Sorry about that, anyway, let’s talk about what you want to hear. In case you’ve been living under a rock, a few weeks back I announced my inclusion into the Cash in The Vault match at Pain For Pride. My fellow Haircare Kings partner Chris Elite was generous enough to give me his favor from… however long ago that was, and I found myself in a position to get closer to a World Championship than I ever had before. Fast forward a few weeks later, and we are just a week away from Pain For Pride and specifically that match. Time flies doesn’t it? Crazy how it feels like we were just at the beginning of the Season, and looking back on it, man… how far I’ve come. When I first arrived on the Sunday Night Voltage brand I was in over my head, I thought everything could just be handed to me because that was just something that I was accustomed to up to that point. I thought that at the snap of a finger the EAW World Championship would fall right into the palm of my hand and all my goals and ambitions for the Season would go exactly as planned… two months into that I realized that was a bunch of bullshit.

(Jake turns his head and looks back at his trophy case that’s not so far away from where he’s sitting right now. There, he has his two PURE Championships along with his half of the Unified Tag Team Championships.)

Jake Smith: I realized that all the Championships I won before that were a consolation prize for second place, and the fact that I was content about that foretold my future in EAW. It was all a faux, and I was lying to myself if I believed it was anything more than that. For years I was fighting for second place yet I thought I was on the top of the world… in hindsight, it’s just hilarious. But luckily, I’m past all of that nonsense, and it’s not coincidental that as soon as I flipped that switch my luck began to turn around. Sure it was nice holding all of those Championships and if given the opportunity I wouldn’t deny holding them again, but I realized that my main purpose wasn’t any of that… it was to be a World Champion, and furthermore the best wrestler in the whole goddamn world. I thought I was in that position at first, but you know, I had a Ronan Malosi-level delusion back then and I made myself believe anything that I wanted to hear. But I’m far from that, but at the same time I’m trying to get there… the only way I can possibly think of seeing that through is by winning the Cash in The Vault.

Jake Smith: I’ve said this entire Season that I have improved in leaps and strides but when it comes down to the facts, really, I have nothing to show for it. While a win here and a win there against this person or whatever is something that might suffice for someone else, it’s pointless when it’s forgotten in a month or two and the only person that remembers it is yourself. I want more, I want the gold, I want the success, I want everything that everyone else wants tenfold and I promise you that I’m going to accomplish that. A lot of people when they face me like to point the finger and ask me how it feels to know that my peers, who have either joined after or during my arrival here in Elite Answers Wrestling have surpassed me? And while that is surely up for debate, the fact that is a talking point against me in itself definitely does not make me all that happy. It means I haven’t lived up to my full potential, I haven’t done what’s necessary to win. I promised that was going to change, and once again, having my Pain For Pride moment this year is going to be my way to do that.

Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK BORK!

(Translation: If you ask me, I think you’re mostly likely to win that match.)

Jake Smith: Thank you Josh, but I know five other people that might disagree with that statement. But just like before, I’m not going to give myself a choice but to win next week. All roads in my career have led to this point, and that briefcase could very well hold the fate of my future in its hands. Is Jake Smith finally going to be the World Champion that has always been prophesied for him? Or not? Is Cash in The Vault going to be my defining moment? Or is it just going to be another Grand Rampage, Road To Redemption, Clash of Kingdoms? I can’t tell you for certain, we’ll just have to find out for ourselves when the time comes. But, I think I have an immense amount of faith in myself and my abilities as an Elitist.

(Jake reaches out for his cup of coffee and takes a sip of it again, exhaling before looking down at Josh and giving another smile once again.)

Jake Smith: I’m sure you’d love that right? You and Tiffany have been my biggest supporters since day one, no matter how fucked in the head I was. I’d like to say thank you. I just don’t want either of your faith to just be for nothing, you get it? I’ve been fighting for so long now and falling short so many times that you don’t know how many times I’ve thought about giving up. But I haven’t, because both of you have held out your hand to me and lifted me back up… I can’t be more thankful for that. While she’s beating the shit out of Cleopatra and tearing the house down, I’m going to end the Season on a high note. I’m going to do it for both of you, got it?

Josh: BORK!

(Translation: :blessed:)

Jake Smith: This is a big moment for me, for more reasons than one. For once in my career I’m not fighting for myself, there are people behind me that I’m doing this for. If all goes well I’m glad that this will finally be the turning of a new leaf for my career. I’m glad I will finally get what I’ve fought for years to obtain and countless times before have fallen short of the mark. Say what you want about me, write whatever narrative you please, there is no doubt that I am a fighter. And I will continue to do what I do best, and that my friends, is fight. As I said, it’s truly some exciting times here in Elite Answers Wrestling, hope you can join me for the ride.

(Jake raises his cup of coffee in the air before placing it back down on the table. He leans back in his seat and brings his hands behind his head with a smile on his face while the camera begins to pan out and away from him. It then goes to one more shot of his house and it’s the last one seen before Sunday Night Voltage from there begins to transition elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: KING OF ELITE 2022 – MYLES VS. DRAKE KING; NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP]

(The arena’s lights dim dark as the titantron begins to play a video package recapping the dark and deeply rooted rivalry of Drake King and Myles. It shows New Eden’s union and rise to fame, then the trail of breadcrumbs that lead to Drake King snapping on Minerva in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. Myles cashes in his cash in the vault and drives Drake through the canvas, shattering the final splinter in the heart of New Eden and ensuring that never again would he fall for the tales of Drake King.)

(The lights turn completely dark as the eerie presence of Hans Zimmer’s malevolent score “Cold War” begins to zap the arena’s speakers. The titantron shows Drake King’s graphics as the crowd absolutely drowns him in boos. Drake King, as cold and as composed as we’ve ever seen, walks onto the stage and stops a few steps out, staring at the ground, closing his eyes, bringing his head up into the air and absorbing this moment. He opens his eyes and keeps them focused with an almost laser like intensity, nothing but the ring.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! AND IT IS FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPPPPPPP!

(The crowd roars in cheers and quickly dissolves back into a disdain-like reaction.)

Bella Braxton: THIS MATCH WILL BE CONTESTED UNDER NO DISQUALIFICATION RULES, ANYTHING GOES! THE ONLY WAY TO WIN IS TO PIN OR SUBMIT YOUR OPPONENT INSIDE THE RING!

James Peters: As if these two would have it any other way.

Bella Braxton: HOWEVER- THE ROPES CANNOT BREAK UP A SUBMISSION, BUT THEY CAN STOP A PINFALL ATTEMPT!

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! WRESTLING OUT OF THE DEAD SEA, ISRAELLLLL!!! WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDSSSS!!!! DRAKEEEEEE “THEEEEEEE REDEEEEMMEEEERRRRRRRRRR”!!!

(The crowd boos once more as Drake slowly walks down the ramp, stomps and raises his hands up into the air. He stands afore these EAW fans as perhaps the most hated man on the roster, still presenting himself as a god dressed in bright white and gold robes.)

James Peters: Drake King, also to be synonymous with the word selfish. Ironic considering that’s what he claims to fight against in EAW. He’s a liar, plain and simple, using these obscene and outlandish messages of saviorism and the promised land to justify his own wishes to simply do what he wants to whoever he wants. He doesn’t care about anything, but himself and acting on this savagery he says is necessary. It’s disgusting and honestly, I hope Myles puts an end to this schtick tonight. “The Redeemer”? What a joke. The only thing that needs to be redeemed is his own soul after turning his back on one of the only two people who looked out for him in a world that already rightfully hates him.

Rich Russillo: It’s interesting, you used the word necessary, but sometimes there are necessary evils in the world. I mean, let’s not keep double standards here, how many times did you guys and everyone else curse the name of New Eden? Drake King abolished what he’d created after hearing from all of us that New Eden wasn’t the way into the future. In one aspect of the whole situation, he essentially granted our wish and set things back on the track we wished for them to be on. How evil can that be?

James Peters: Are you serious? Or do you need to see him branding Minerva’s skin with that melting hot branding iron back at Road To Redemption? Doing it in front of Myles? He stuck the knife straight through the heart of the hand that feeds, that doesn’t deserve any praise. He moved on from New Eden like he does with all his stables at one point or another, when Drake King sees that it’s no longer beneficial for Drake King, he acts in the most vile and horrific manner possible about the situation. It reveals the kind of character he possesses. Once a snake, always a snake.

Persephone: It’s not that deep, relax. He didn’t fuck your wife with his small ass penis and destroy your manhood, if you actually have balls. If you’ve got a smelly vagina between your legs, I wouldn’t be surprised.

James Peters: You know, this is a wrestling program.

Rich Russillo: Anyways, as Drake King approaches the ring, he knows this is one of the biggest matches of his life. This is so personal for both of them, but Drake has said he has no regrets or remorse about what happened and only did what he thought necessary. Like I said, a necessarily evil. He knows he’ll need to capitalize off Myles’ red hot anger tonight and throw him off his game. If Drake can use Myles’ own personal feelings towards this match as his own offense and weaponize his foe’s potential weakness, he could be on the verge of another world title reign.

James Peters: I fear if Drake King wins the title back tonight, there may be no taking it from him until he decides it’s time to give it up. He’s a vile and filthy rat, but a damned good talent, one of the best to ever lace those boots.

(Drake enters the ring and the camera zooms out as he gazes off into the crowd, nothing but frozen feelings behind his black eyes.)

Rich Russillo: Generational.

(#EAW15)

(Drake King removes his robe and stretches his legs on the ropes, patiently waiting, not eager. He stands in the ring and closes his eyes, looking straight down into the canvas.)

(“Land of the Innocent” by Feathers begins to play. Sarah Price’s graphics flash across the screen.)

Rich Russillo: I-?

(Drake King pops his head up in utter confusion, hanging his mouth open and looking at the stage in disbelief.)

Persephone: Don’t tell me this blonde bitch is back, I’d rather see Myles walk out dressed as a woman than see her back here.

(The music cuts abruptly as the lights in the arena start strobing rainbow colors and flashing brightly.)

Persephone: ???

(“TEAM XTREME” by Yung Flex rings throughout the arena as Drake’s face falls flat and he shows not even the slightest smirk. He looks utterly disappointed as Viktor Jackson’s graphics play on the screen.)

(An audio tape of Drake King reciting his very first promo “The King’s Rise” is heard over the intercom as the fans cheer Myles’ antics.)

Rich Russillo: Man, what is going on. This is absurd, someone please cut this out as clearly it’s only delaying the match.

(“This may not seem like a big deal, but it is a huge deal. This match is the match that will set the tone of my career, this. This is my first impression. I can’t afford to lose,” Drake King shuts his eyes, grinds his teeth and starts to bear a more angered expression on his face.)

(“ ‘Back To Life” By Soul II Soul now plays as The Visual Prophet’s graphics appear on the screen. Drake King now appears visibly angry and he rolls out of the ring, shouting at the production crew and starting to walk up the ramp-)

(“Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi replaces the sound in an almost chilling manner as the arena explodes, perhaps the biggest reaction we’ve heard since this man cashed in his Cash In The Vault briefcase. Drake King’s face now stunned, gone is the calculated and cold look from earlier, he’s taken aback by the atmosphere right now.)

James Peters: HERE HE COMES!

(The EAW World Champion, Myles, slowly makes his way onto the stage with his title. Dressed in a tattered and ripped shirt, tights of muted color and a crawling design of burn marks on his shoulder, fighting for Minerva tonight. Fighting for the world.)

Rich Russillo: He’s come for war tonight, Myles dressed for heavy duty as Drake King stands on the ramp, Myles at the top of the stage as they stare one another down! This atmosphere is incredible! This is history! This match is what we’ve all been waiting for!

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT!! WRESTLING OUT OF MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA, WEIGHING IN AT 215 POUNNDSSSSS!! HE IS THE EAW WORLDDDD CHAMPIONNNNN-

James Peters: MYLES DROPS THE TITLE AND STORMS DOWN THE RAMP! DRAKE WON’T BACK DOWN AS HE MEETS MYLES ON THE STAGE! THEY TEAR EACH OTHER TO THE FLOOR AND START A FIERY BRAWL! IF THERE IS ANY ONE MAN WHO KNOWS HOW TO GET INTO THE HEAD OF DRAKE KING, IT’S MYLES AND HE’S GOT DRAKE ON THE GROUND RIGHT NOW, TAKING CONTROL AND HAMMERING DOWN PUNCHES ONTO DRAKE KING! MYLES UNLOADING ALL OF HIS HATRED AND FRUSTRATED AS HE RAINS DOWN PUNCHES AND VICIOUS ELBOWS TO DRAKE KING!

Rich Russillo: MYLES SAW DRAKE AND JUST LOST IT, THE BRAWL IS ON AND THIS WAR HAS BEGUN!

DING! DING! DING!

Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL AND THIS MATCH IS OFFICIAL! DRAKE COVERING UP AS MYLES CONTINUES WITH THE RELENTLESS BLOWS! HE MANAGES TO SHOVE MYLES OFF HIM AS THE CHAMPION TUMBLES BACKWARDS AND DOWN THE RAMP, HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND MEETS DRAKE KING WITH A RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE TO THE FACE! A KNEE RIGHT OFF THE SKULL AND DRAKE KING TUMBLES DOWN OVER THE SIDE OF THE STAGE AND ROLLS ONTO THE FLOOR!

James Peters: These two just got started and they’re not wasting time with formalities! Myles is going to make Drake King pay for all the pain he’s caused both him and Minerva! Myles gets to his feet- NOW IT’S DRAKE WHO CLIMBS BACK ONTO THE STAGE AND STORMS RIGHT FOR MYLES! DRAKE GOES FOR A LARIAT, BUT MYLES DUCKS UNDER IT! NOW MYLES SCOOPS DRAKE KING ON HIS SHOULDERS- OH NO!

Rich Russillo: NOT YET! DRAKE KING ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR AND SHOVES THE CHARGING MYLES FACE FIRST INTO THE ENTRANCE SCREENS! Myles crashes into the screens and sends them cracking and glitching as he clutches his head and rolls on the stage, Drake now lifts his former friend, or tag team partner, and brings him to his feet- OH BOY! DRAKE HAS HIM IN POSITION FOR A POWERBOMB! DRAKE KING GOING FOR A POWERBOMB ON THE STAGE, BUT MYLES IS THE ONE WHO NOW SLIPS OUT AND CRACKS A FOREARM OFF THE JAW OF DRAKE!

James Peters: Myles with a beautiful counter! Now another right hook that shakes Drake’s teeth, following up with a knee that buries itself- NO! MYLES WENT FOR A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION, BUT DRAKE CAUGHT IT AND SCOOPS HIM UP INTO HIS ARMS! DRAKE KING ACCELERATES TOWARDS THOSE ENTRANCE STAGE SCREENS AND POWERBOMBS MYLES RIGHT THROUGH THE SCREEN- OH MY GOD!!!!!

Rich Russillo: MYLES BODY JUST CREATED A CAVITY IN THOSE SCREENS AS HE’S BURIED IN THE DARKNESS BEHIND THEM, SPARKS CRACKING AND SNAPPING EVERYWHERE, OH MY GOD, DRAKE KING JUST SENT MYLES CRASHING THROUGH THE STAGE AND HE SAYS THAT’S WHAT MYLES GETS FOR TRYING TO PLAY GAMES WITH “THE REDEEMER”!

James Peters: Drake King staring into that black hole created in the illuminated stage, then walking out to the edge of the stage and smiling at the crowd…That’s the first smile we’ve seen from him all night, that truly shows what kind of things give Drake King happiness. He’s an absolutely psychopath who I standby as just using these radical ideas of salvation to hurt who he wants and act as he pleases-

(The crowd begins to buzz and that buzz turns to a roar as suddenly the smile vanishes from Drake King’s face.)

James Peters: MYLES IS BACK UP! HE WON’T BE PUT DOWN THAT QUICKLY, HE RISES FROM THE LITERAL ASHES AND SPRINTS THROUGH THE FLYING SPARKS! MYLES THROUGH THE FIRE, HE CHARGES ACROSS THE STAGE AND DOES A DIVING CROSSBODY OFF THE STAGE AND THEY LAND ON TOP OF THE EAW CROWD!!!! MYLES WITH A LEAP OFF THE STAGE AND THEY WOUND UP CRASHING INTO THE CROWD AND THEY LEVELED THE ENTIRE FIRST ROW NEXT TO THE STAGE!

Rich Russillo: MYLES WITH AN ABSOLUTE LEAP OF FAITH! WHAT A FEAT FROM THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION, LIVING UP TO THE TITLE!

James Peters: MYLES GRABS A FOLDING CHAIR AND NOW SNAPS IT OVER THE BACK OF DRAKE KING! HE RIPS THAT CHAIR OVER DRAKE’S BACK AND NOW SWINGS IT AGAIN! THAT ONE SENT DRAKE KING TUMBLING FORWARD AS HE TRIES TO ESCAPE THROUGH THE CROWD! DRAKE STUMBLING AND FALLING THROUGH THE CROWD, MYLES IS RIGHT ON HIS HEELS AND IS SWINGING THAT CHAIR WHENEVER HE GETS CLOSE! DRAKE KING DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO GET SOME DISTANCE BETWEEN HIM AND MYLES!

CRACK!

Rich Russillo: MYLES WITH A HUGE SWING OF THAT CHAIR AS HE BREAKS THE FOLDING CHAIR OVER DRAKE’S BACK AND THAT ONE PUTS DRAKE ON THE FLOOR! MY GOD, DRAKE HAS TO BE IN A WORLD OF PAIN RIGHT NOW! Myles holds the broken chair in the air and this crowd cheers him on as he peels his eyes back to Drake King and watches as Drake squirms his way closer to the barricade!

(The crowd cheers and chants for Myles as he throws the chair down and puts Drake in his sights.)

James Peters: MYLES IS LINING DRAKE UP! MYLES SPRINTS TOWARDS DRAKE KING AND- BANG! A SUPERKICK FROM DRAKE STUNS MYLES AND PUTS HIM DOWN TO HIS KNEES, NOW DRAKE GRABS ONE OF THE FAN’S PHONES AND CRUSHES IT AGAINST THE SKULL OF MYLES! HE SHATTERED THAT IPHONE OVER MYLES HEAD AND NOW TOSSES IT ON THE FLOOR! A KICK TO THE RIBS OF MYLES AS HE TRIES TO COVER UP AND DRAKE KING RUTHLESSLY TAKES CONTROL!

Persephone: That’s what that fan gets for being obese. Look at her, she grabbed her popcorn bucket before her phone, the lack of priorities is what left her without a phone! That’s a personal problem!

Rich Russillo: Now it’s Drake who drags this match back out into the arena and he’s taking Myles up a set of stairs! THIS WON’T END WELL! DRAKE KING LIFTING MYLES UP- NO! MYLES ESCAPES AND PUSHES DRAKE AWAY, NOW ROCKING HIM WITH A JUMPING KICK TO THE FACE! A KICK THAT SENT DRAKE TUMBLING AS MYLES FALLS TO A KNEE! These men are both exhausted already, they’ve been flooring the pedal since the match started, since before it actually!

James Peters: Wait- what is?!? What is Drake King doing…? What’s he looking for- Myles walks back towards his enemy and-

Rich Russillo: GOD!

Persephone: YIKES!

James Peters: DRAKE SMACKS A HAMMER OFF THE SIDE OF MYLES JAW! OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD! HE HAD TO HAVE BROKEN HIS JAW AS DRAKE KING GETS TO HIS FEET! HE FOUND THAT BAG OF TOOLS ON SOME EQUIPMENT OUT THERE AS MYLES GRABS HIS JAW AND BLOOD SPILLS FROM HIS MOUTH ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR!

Rich Russillo: Drake King wiping Myles face on that bloody and dirty floor! My god, that’s disgusting! Myles whole face is covered in blood now as Drake drops his head to the floor and Myles barely is able to stay conscious! DRAKE KING STILL WITH THAT HAMMER IN HIS HAND, HE LOOKS UP AT THE SKY, HE TAKES A DEEP BREATH AND THEN UNLEASHES A COLD STARE AT THE BODY OF MYLES, NO, DRAKE- DON’T! DRAKE KING HOISTS THAT HAMMER IN THE AIR OVER MYLES HEAD AS HE PREPARES TO END HIM-

James Peters: THE FANS JUST THREW DRINKS ALL OVER DRAKE! THEY’RE SHOWERING HIM IN POPCORN AND DRINKS, HURLING FOOD DOWN ONTO DRAKE FROM THE STANDS! THESE FANS WON’T LET DRAKE GET AWAY WITH THIS! THIS MAN IS HATED AND THESE FANS ARE SHOWING IT! HE SCOWLS BACK AT THEM AND SHOUTS AS THEY CONTINUE TO THROW THINGS AT HIM! HE’S INFURIATED AS HE RAISES THE HAMMER UP AGAIN AND-

Rich Russillo: THIS TIME MYLES ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, BARELY SAVING HIMSELF AS DRAKE CRACKED THE CONCRETE FLOOR WITH THAT HAMMER, NOW MYLES DELIVERS A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! DRAKE DROPS IT AND MYLES SENDS HIM REELING WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK TO THE RIBS! MYLES MOUNTING A COUNTER ATTACK AS HE NOW GRABS THE HAMMER AND SWINGS IT AT DRAKE! DRAKE KING DUCKS IT, BUT MYLES CATCHES HIM WITH AN ELBOW ON THE OTHER SIDE! THAT ONE STUNG HIM BAD AND HE FALLS INTO THAT SMEARED PUDDLE OF MYLES’ BLOOD!

James Peters: NOW IT’S MYLES WITH THE HAMMER- DRAKE IS PLEADING WITH MYLES AND BEGGING HIM NOT TO- WAIT-

(Drake King’s cries turn to an evil grin as he looks at Myles.)

James Peters: DRAKE KING IS LAUGHING AT MYLES AND TELLING HIM TO DO IT, HE’S TELLING MYLES THAT HE CREATED HIM! HE’S TRYING TO CONTROL MYLES EVEN NOW- BUT MYLES GRANTS DRAKE’S WISH AND SLAMS THE HAMMER DOWN ONTO DRAKE’S RIBCAGE! DRAKE SCREAMS IN PAIN AS MYLES NOW TAKES THE SHARP EDGE OF THAT HAMMER AND STARTS DIGGING INTO DRAKE’S SCALP! HE’S DRIVING THAT HAMMER INTO DRAKE’S HEAD! SLASHING SAND CHIPPING AS DRAKE SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN, JESUS CHRIST MYLES!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING’S HEAD IS NOW LEAKING BLOOD AS IT BEGINS TO STREAM DOWN THE SIDE OF HIS FACE AND MYLES OPENS UP CUTS AND LACERATIONS ON HIS HEAD! MYLES NOW THROWS DOWN THE HAMMER, GRABBS DRAKE BY THE HAIR AND DRAGS HIM DOWN THE STAIRS!! HORRIBLE THUDDING SOUNDS AS DRAKE GETS DRAGGED BY MYLES, EVENTUALLY DROPPED ONTO THE FLOOR AS MYLES, COVERED IN BOTH HIS AND DRAKE’S BLOOD, STANDS OVER THE BEATEN AND BLOODIED BODY OF HIS FORMER FRIEND!

(The crowd cheers as Myles stands above Drake with complex contempt for him.)

James Peters: Myles almost looks like he feels bad for Drake, seeing someone he treasured as a brother for so long to be bloodied and battered by his own hands…but that won’t stop him! Myles drags Drake by his hair to his feet! HE LIFTS DRAKE UP INTO SUPLEX POSITION! MYLES SENDS HIM INTO THE AIR AND NOW SLAMS DRAKE ON THE BOTTOM STAIR WITH A MICHINOKU DRIVER!!!! OH MY GOD, MYLES BREAKS THE BODY OF DRAKE OVER THOSE STAIRS WITH THAT MICHINOKU DRIVER AND BOTH MEN YELL IN PAIN!

(The fans stand on their feet and chant; HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!)

Persephone: DRAKE JUST GOT HIS LITTLE RAT SPINE SNAPPED IN HALF BY AN AUSTRALIAN OF ALL PEOPLE!

Rich Russillo: THOSE SILVER STEPS HAVE A GIANT RED STREAK RUNNING DOWN THEM AND NOW DRAKE’S BLOOD IS STAINED EVERYWHERE AS MYLES GRABS HIS LOWER BACK AND GETS TO HIS FEET! HE GRABS DRAKE KING AND DRAGS HIM THROUGH THE CROWD AND BIELS HIM OVER THE BARRICADE! Drake King’s body lands on the floor and he lays out cold as Myles laboredly follows him! These two are finally about to get into the ring and settle this deeply personal feud!

James Peters: Myles trying to roll Drake under the bottom rope, but he’s lifeless and falls down onto his knees as Myles fails to get Drake in the ring, Drake King is hurt so bad! OH BOY, MYLES ROLLS HIM ONTO OUR ANNOUNCER’S DESK AND STARTS THROWING OUR STUFF EVERYWHERE! COME ON MYLES, THAT WAS VITAMIN WATER!

Persephone: All water has vitamins, dummy!

Rich Russillo: MYLES ROLLS DRAKE ONTO THE TABLE, WHO IS JUST BARELY STARTING TO COME TO! HE GETS UP THERE WITH HIM AND LIFTS DRAKE BY THE BEARD- CRACK! DRAKE OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A RIGHT HAND! MYLES STUMBLES AND HE FALLS OFF THE TABLE AS DRAKE MANAGES TO STAND BACK ON HIS FEET- BUT NOT FOR LONG! MYLES KICKS THE LEGS OUT FROM UNDER DRAKE AND HE FALLS STRAIGHT ON HIS BACK! SOMEHOW THIS TABLE HOLDS UP AS DRAKE WRITHES IN PAIN-

James Peters: MYLES ISN’T HOLDING ANYTHING BACK! HE’S DELIVERING REPEATED DROPPING ELBOWS TO THE FACE OF DRAKE! HE TRAPS DRAKE’S ARM IN HIS ARMPIT AND USES THE OTHER ARM TO KEEP DELIVERING THESE HELLACIOUS SHOTS TO DRAKE KING! MYLES NOW SPITS BLOOD ON DRAKE KING AND SCUFFS HIS HAND OFF DRAKE’S FACE AS HE EXHAUSTEDLY MAKES HIS WAY TO THE BARRICADE!

Rich Russillo: MYLES?! MYLES JUST HOPPED ONTO THE BARRICADE AND NOW HE SPRINTS ACROSS THE SPANISH ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! LEAPING OFF THE EDGE AND DROPPING TWO KNEES ACROSS THE CHEST OF DRAKE WITH A METEORA THAT EXPLODES OUR TABLE AND BOTH MEN FALL INTO THE RUBBLE! HOLY SHIT, MYLES LEAVING IT ALL OUT THERE TO TAKE DRAKE OUT AS HE DESTROYS THE TABLE AND GRABS HIS LEGS IN AGONY!

(EAW fans cheer loudly for Myles, who is going all out to take out Drake King.)

James Peters: MYLES KNOWS THIS IS HIS CHANCE, DRAKE KING HAS BEEN PUT THROUGH ABSOLUTE HELL IN THIS MATCH! IF HE’S TO PUT HIM AWAY AND DRIVE THE STAKE THROUGH THE DEVIL’S HEART, IT’S TIME! HE KNOWS THIS IS HIS WINDOW TO DEFEND HIS TITLE, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, EVERYTHING HE HOLDS DEAR TO HIM! THIS IS FOR SO MUCH MORE THAN THE TITLE, THIS IS FOR MYLES, THIS IS FOR MINERVA!

Rich Russillo: Myles doesn’t want this match to end yet! He wants to torture Drake and make him feel the pain he and Minerva felt at Road To Redemption! This is the grudge match of all grudge matches and Myles won’t be finished until one man is as close to dead as humanly possible! He lines Drake up in the corner and tees off with repeated forearms to Drake’s jaw! Myles unloads with forearms as he now grabs Drake by the hair, rips him to the center of the ring- HE SENDS DRAKE! CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!

James Peters: Drake doubled over in the corner, but Myles isn’t done! HE LEAPS TOWARDS DRAKE WITH DOUBLE KNEES, AIMED RIGHT AT THE BACK OF DRAKE’S SKULL! No! Drake scurries out of the way and Myles knees clash with the turnbuckle! He grabs his knee pads as DRAKE COMES OFF THE ROPES WITH A DISCUS ELBOW- NO! NOW IT’S MYLES WHO COUNTERS AS HE DUCKS UNDER IT, DELIVERING A JUMPING KNEE TO THE BACK OF DRAKE’S HEAD THAT SENDS HIM BARRELING THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT TO THE FLOOR!

(Myles looks out at the crowd and tells them to get to their feet.)

James Peters: It isn’t often you see Myles ushering the crowd to stand up, but he’s got something dangerous in mind! MYLES OFF THE ROPES, DRAKE KING JUST BARELY GETTING TO HIS FEET! MYLES SPRINGS OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A LEAPING TOPE CON GIROOOOOO THAT TAKES DRAKE KING DOWN AS BOTH MEN CRASH TO THE FLOOR! WOW! WHAT ATHLETICISM FROM MYLES AS HE TAKES DRAKE KING DOWN AND STUMBLES BACK UP TO HIS FEET, THAT DIVE TOOK IT OUT OF HIM AS WELL!

Persephone: WOW! WHO KNEW STEROIDS COULD INCREASE YOUR ABILITY TO FLY?! HE FLEW SO FAR, HE COULD’VE LEVELED THE TWIN TOWERS WITH THAT ONE!

Rich Russillo: ???

(The commentary team looks in Persephone in disbelief as she’s oddly entertained by the match.)

Rich Russillo:… Myles in full control as he grabs Drake and- Wait a minute! DRAKE TURNED THINGS AROUND AND IRISH WHIPS MYLES INTO THE RING STEPS- HE LEAPED OVER THEM AND ROLLED ONTO HIS FEET! MYLES IS UNREAL! HE RUNS AND JUMPS OFF THE STEPS-

BANG!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING GRABBED A CHAIR FROM THE FRONT ROW AND SLAMMED IT AGAINST THE ONCOMING MYLES WITH EVERYTHING HE HAD! MY GOD! DRAKE KING CLATTERS THAT CHAIR AGAINST THE BODY OF MYLES AS HE NOW SLIDES HIM BACK INTO THE RING, THAT CHAIR RIGHT ALONGSIDE HIM AS DRAKE CRUSHES IT OVER THE BACK OF MYLES! AND AGAIN! DRAKE KING IS REPEATEDLY SLAMMING THIS CHAIR OVER MYLES’ BACK AND LEGS, HE’S JUST TRYING TO COVER UP, BUT DRAKE IS ABSOLUTELY RUTHLESS! TO THINK HE ONCE CALLED THIS MAN BROTHER.

James Peters: OH GOD- DRAKE JUST POSITIONED THAT CHAIR UPRIGHT AND LIFTS MYLES UP TO HIS FEET- NOW DRAKE KING DROPS MYLES WITH A NECKBREAKER ON THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR AS MYLES NECK WHIPLASHED BACK AND FORTH AND HE RATTLES TO THE CANVAS- JESUS CHRIST, ONE MORE INCH AND THAT COULD’VE BEEN HIS CAREER GONE! DRAKE KING HAS FULLY LET GO AS MYLES IS STILL ROLLING AROUND IN THE CORNER!

(The EAW crowd lightly boos as some sit in silence at the sight of Myles not moving at all and still clenching neck and Drake repositioning that bent chair.)

(Drake looks up at the sky, closes his eyes, then looks back down and gives Myles a look of pure vile contempt.)

Rich Russillo: That look can’t be good! He looks like a man that’s lost his mind, he’s got that chair set up still, despite having already been bent on Myles neck, he’s got it stood up and what more could he do to potentially end the career and life of Myles! OH GOD! DRAKE KING LIFTS MYLES ON HIS SHOULDERS! HE APPROACHES THAT CHAIR AND-

James Peters: MYLES SLIPS OUT THE BACK AND CLOBBERS AN ELBOW INTO THE BACK OF DRAKE’S HEAD! MYLES HIMSELF IS STILL HURT, HE’S BARELY CONSCIOUS AS HE STUMBLES AROUND THE RING AND NEARLY FALLS DOWN! BUT NOTHING CAN STOP HIM, HE’S ON A MISSION! THIS IS WAR! MYLES GRABS THE REELING DRAKE KING AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO POWERBOMB POSITION! HE SLAMS DRAKE TO THE CANVAS WITH A FORCEFUL POWERBOMB AND NOW-

Rich Russillo: MYLES LIFTS HIM UP AGAIN, WHAT STRENGTH! MYLES RUNS ACROSS THE RING AND POWERBOMBS DRAKE TO HELL OVER THAT STEEL CHAIR AS IT BREAKS UNDER DRAKE’S BODY WEIGHT AND HE VIOLENTLY ROLLS TO THE CANVAS IN A HEAP OF PAIN! JESUS CHRIST, MYLES WITH NO REMORSE AS HE USES ALL HIS FORCE TO RIP THAT BROKEN CHAIR IN TWO PIECES, NOW BEATING DRAKE WITH THE DEBRIS FROM THIS STEEL CHAIR!

James Peters: THIS IS INSANE, MYLES THROWS THOSE BROKEN CHAIR PARTS TO THE GROUND AS HE NOW DRAGS DRAKE KING UP TO HIS FEET! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND NOW HAS DRAKE IN A TORTURE RACK! “PANDORA’S WRATH” FROM MYLES AS HE DROPS DRAKE INTO A DDT IN MID AIR OVER THAT STEEL CHAIR! JESUS CHRIST, DRAKE’S BLOOD CONTINUES TO OOZE FROM HIS HEAD AND COVER THE CANVAS IN RED AS MYLES STUMBLES AWAY FROM HIM AND FALLS TO HIS KNEES!

(Myles looks at Drake, frustration on his face, not the look of revenge, but hate and frustration.)

Rich Russillo: You know, despite this horrific punishment, Myles doesn’t look like he’s enjoying this. I mean, this is still a man who, no matter the pain he caused him, he called something like family for so long.

(Myles’ look of contemplation quickly turns sour as he looks back at Drake King, who is just beginning to stir.)

James Peters: Myles seems to have made up his mind as he approaches Drake once again! Drake swings for Myles and Myles steps out of the way, and he says bring it on! Myles egging Drake on as Drake again goes for a punch! Myles evades it and taunts Drake again! OH BOY, THEY COME FACE TO FACE AS THESE TWO STAND NOSE TO NOSE- THE BRAWL IS ON!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE LANDS A PUNCH AND MYLES SMILES AT HIM, ANOTHER ONE AND MYLES JUST EATS IT! MYLES EATING THESE PUNCHES LIKE THEY’RE NOTHING AND NOW LANDS A BIG ONE OF HIS OWN! DRAKE RETURNS AND THAT ONE BACKS MYLES UP! NOW DRAKE BACK TOWARDS MYLES- BANG! A BICYCLE KICK TO THE FACE THAT STUNS DRAKE! DRAKE POPS UP WITH AN ENZUIGIRI THAT ROCKS MYLES! MYLES FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES AND GOES FOR A BIG JUMPING KNEE!

James Peters: DRAKE AVOIDS IT AND TAKES MYLES’ BACK! HE’S GOT THE WRIST, HE SPINS MYLES OUT AND GOES FOR THE KNEE, BUT MYLES CATCHES HIS LEG AND POPS HIM UP INTO POWERBOMB POSITION! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND DRAKE KING SENDS HIM TUMBLING ONTO THE MAT WITH A HURRICANRANA!!! NOW BACK TO THEIR FEET, THEY MEET IN THE MIDDLE WITH A DOUBLE LARIAT AND BOTH MEN HIT THE CANVAS AS THEY STALEMATE ONE ANOTHER!!

(EAW crowd cheers loudly for the phenomenal wrestlic display being put on by both men.)

Rich Russillo: THEY KNOW EACH OTHER SO WELL! THEY KNOW EVERY MOVE AND EVERY SEQUENCE THE OTHER ONE HAS PLANNED! THESE TWO ARE SO EVENLY MATCHED, BUT SEPARATED BY SO MUCH HATRED!

Persephone: I mean, it’s hard not to hate them! They both stink! One dude looks like he believes Jesus was white, the other one is Drake King! Who I’ve heard has a small sword in the sheathe if you know what I’m saying!

James Peters: Man, these guys are both so good as they both get back up and are both on one knee, they’re still face to face! They rise to their feet again and they stand face to face one more time! This time the brawl doesn’t ensue and they lock eyes and just share this horrible glare at one another! THIS IS A SIGHT TO BEHOLD!

Rich Russillo: What the- what is Drake King saying?!?

Persephone: It’s Black History month, so hopefully not his usual vocabulary.

(Drake King is seen shouting at Myles as Myles is visibly getting more and more angry.)

Drake King: SHE DESERVED EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED TO HER, I’D DO IT A MILLION TIMES OVER.

Rich Russillo: MYLES WON’T TAKE THAT AS HE EXPLODES WITH A LARIAT- NO! DRAKE DUCKS UNDER IT, NOW CHOP BLOCKING MYLES’ KNEE FROM BEHIND! HE PUTS MYLES ON A KNEE, NOW A SNAPPING SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! DRAKE KING WIPES THE BLOOD OUT OF HIS EYES AS IT DRIPS FROM HIS HAIR ONTO MYLES, HE GRABS MYLES BY THE WRIST, SPINS HIM OUT AND DELIVERS A HUGE JUMPING KNEE TO MYLES’ JAW AND THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION FALLS TO THE CANVAS WITH A THUD!

James Peters: HIS BODY CREATED A GIANT BLOODY OUTLINE ON THE MAT AS HE’S COATED IN BOTH HIS AND DRAKE’S BLOOD, BUT RIGHT NOW, IT’S HIS OWN THAT’S BEING SPILLED AS DRAKE KING GETS DOWN TO THE CANVAS, PLANTING A KNEE INTO THE SPINE OF MYLES, HE SLAMS MYLES HEAD INTO THE GROUND AND STARTS TRYING TO RIP HIS HAIR OUT! DRAKE KING PULLING VICIOUSLY AS MYLES CRIES OUT IN PAIN!!! JESUS LORD, MYLES MANAGES TO GET A THUMB INTO THE EYE OF DRAKE AND THAT STOPS HIM FOR NOW-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING COMES RIGHT BACK AND PUTS A KNEE ON MYLES NECK, NOW HE STARTS TALKING TO HIM AGAIN!

Drake King: THEN, NOW, ALWAYS EAW’S BIGGEST FAILURE.

(The crowd boos heavily as Drake King grabs Myles by the beard and twists his neck at the most horrific angle he can find.)

Drake King: NEW EDEN FOREVER? NEW EDEN, NEVER.

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING WITH THE FINAL KNIFE THROUGH NEW EDEN’S HEART AS HIS OWN BLACK HEART LEADS HIM TO SLAMMING MYLES HEAD OFF THE CANVAS, NOW FLYING OFF THE ROPES AND GOING FOR A ‘“JUDGMENT DAY”!!! MYLES BARELY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND TRIES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! HE STUMBLES TOWARDS DRAKE, BOTH MEN A BLOODY MESS, BUT DRAKE IS ABLE TO LAND A FLUSH SUPERKICK TO THE MIDSECTION OF MYLES!! THAT SUPERKICK PUT HIM ON HIS KNEES!!

James Peters: NOW DRAKE LANDS ANOTHER SUPERKICK TO THE FACE OF MYLES AND THAT ONE FULLY SENDS HIM TO THE GROUND! MYLES ROLLS OUT TO THE APRON, BUT HE ISN’T SAFE AS DRAKE FOLLOWS HIM OUT THERE! DRAKE DROPS A NASTY ELBOW ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD, THEN WRENCHES MYLES UP, GETTING HIM INTO SUPLEX POSITION! DRAKE KING HOISTS HIM INTO THE AIR AND NOW SLAMS MYLES DOWN WITH A FALCON ARROW ON THE APRONN!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD, MYLES BACK HAS TO BE CRUSHED AFTER THAT AS BOTH MEN FALL TO THE FLOOR AND MYLES DOESN’T MOVE!

(The crowd boos loudly as Drake King is seen hobbling to his feet, grabbing his backside and now searching under the ring for something.)

Rich Russillo: Drake King with…is that a table?! No, it’s a..it’s a mirror?!?

James Peters: Maybe if he looks in it he can finally see his black heart as he rolls Myles back into the ring and slides the mirror in behind him! Drake King lays the mirror out on the canvas- Myles won’t let it happen! He nails Drake with a knee to the midsection, now tossing Drake into the corner and landing a jumping knee strike to the face! Myles manages some offense here as Drake King is stunned! Myles now takes that mirror and he lays it against the turnbuckles, propping it up in the corner! OH BOY!

Rich Russillo: MYLES AVOIDS A DRAKE KING KICK, SHOVES HIM BACKWARDS AND LANDS A DROPKICK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AS DRAKE’S BACK MAKES A NASTY SOUND AND HE HITS THE GROUND! NOW MYLES DRAGS DRAKE OVER TO THE MIRROR AND HE FORCES HIM TO LOOK AT HIMSELF! HE DRAGS THE BLOODY FACE OF DRAKE KING OVER THE GLASS AND STAINS IT WITH A GIANT SMEAR OF RED AS HE TAKES DRAKE KING BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING- OH NO-

Persephone: OH SHIT-

James Peters: MYLES LIFTS DRAKE ONTO HIS SHOULDER, HE WALKS ACROSS THE RING AND CHARGES TOWARDS THE GLASSSSSS!!!! HE SENDS DRAKE CRASHING THROUGH THE MIRROR WITH A LAWN DART THROW AS DRAKE GOES FACE FIRST INTO THAT SHATTERING GLASS! OH MY GOD, DRAKE KING IS CLUTCHING AT HIS EVEN MORE BLOODIED FACE, HE’S UNRECOGNIZABLE AT THIS POINT AND IE SURROUNDED BY THOUSANDS OF GLASS SHARDS!

Rich Russillo: MYLES RELEASES A SCREAM OF PURE ADRENALINE AND APPROACHES THE BLEEDING BODY OF DRAKE KING-

SLICE!

James Peters: DRAKE KING SLASHES THE FACE OF MYLES WITH A GIANT SHARD OF GLASS THAT HE PICKED UP FROM AROUND HIS BROKEN AND BLOODIED BODY! MYLES YELLS OUT AS HE HITS THE GROUND AND DRAKE KING SCRAMBLES ON TOP OF HIM!!! OH MY GOD, NOW DRAKE KING STARTS DRAGGING THE SHARD OF GLASS THROUGH MYLES BACK, HE’S GONNA SCAR MYLES THE SAME WAY HE DID MINERVA, OH MY GOD!!!

Rich Russillo: MYLES BACK STARTING TO SPILL BLOOD AS DRAKE SCREAMS IN ANGER AND RAGE! SOMEONE STOP THIS! MYLES GRABS SOME OF THAT GLASS AND HURLS IT BACKWARDS AS IT MANAGES TO GET INTO THE FACE OF DRAKE KING AND DRAKE IMMEDIATELY GRABS HIS EYES! MYLES JUST BARELY MANAGES TO GET DRAKE OFF HIM AS BOTH MEN START TO GET BACK UP!

James Peters: MYLES HIT WITH A VICIOUS DRAKE KING FOREARM AS HIS JAW SWINGS AROUND AND BLOOD HITS THE CANVAS! HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES- BOOM! ANOTHER FOREARM AS HE STUMBLES BACKWARDS EVEN HARDER AND THIS TIME DRAKE LOADS UP WITH A DISCUS ELBOW- DRAKE MADE A MISTAKE AND MYLES SAW THAT ONE COMING! HE DUCKS IT, GRABS DRAKE’S ARM, HOOKS HIM AND POPS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS- OH MY GOD, HE HIT IT!!!!!! HE HIT IT!!!!!

Rich Russillo: “DE FACTOOOOOOOO”!!!! “DE FACTO” LANDS AS MYLES PUTS DRAKE DOWN WITH FORCE! DRAKE’S BODY SURROUNDED BY BLOOD AND GLASS AS HE MOTIONLESSLY LAYS ON THE CANVAS!

Persephone: WHAT THE?!?! WHAT IS MYLES DOING?!!

Rich Russillo: HE CAN’T COVER HIM! MYLES SAW A MISTAKE FROM DRAKE AND CAPITALIZED BIG, BUT HE’S HURT SO BAD TOO! MYLES HAS BEEN DRAGGED THROUGH HELL, THEN TORTURED IN PURGATORY, HE’S IN NO CONDIITON TO COVER DRAKE KING RIGHT NOW! MYLES PUSHES HIS FISTS AGAINST THE CANVAS AND BASICALLY DEADLIFTS HIMSELF UP TO HIS KNEES, DRAKE KING ROLLS OUT TO THE FLOOR AS HE IS STILL DOWN AND OUT!

(The crowd cheer Myles on as he tries to shake off the cobwebs, but falls back down into the corner and his face turns to a shade of white.)

Rich Russillo: I think the blood loss is really affecting Myles right now, Drake dug in with that glass and Myles looks like he’s extremely dizzy. The lengths he’ll go to in order to beat Drake King surpass whatever he’s feeling right now though. He’ll never quit, not this one.

Persephone: That isn’t his choice, if Drake King stomps an already spinning head into the canvas, it’ll be lights out, like it was just lights out for Drake King, who shouldn’t still be in this match but is because Myles himself said fuck it and started taking punches because he was angry. He needs to keep his tunnel vision on winning this match because I’ll tell you what, looking for revenge might lead him to exactly where he wants to be, but it won’t win him this match. He’s the champion now, even in this bad blood of all the bad blood we’ve seen, he needs to keep his eyes peeled on winning this match.

James Peters: Honestly, it just isn’t possible here. These two are forever intertwined and tonight won’t end until someone is beaten so badly, they return a different man.

Rich Russillo: Win or lose, they both will come back having been changed by this gruesome and cruel match, my God.

(Fans begin to cheer as Myles stands back up and stumbles around, but keeps himself on his feet and the fans cheer him on as he valiantly stands in the bloody mess of a ring as Drake King barely stirs on the outside.)

James Peters: Myles on his feet and he sees Drake King getting up! Drake King must be made of pure steel because he can withstand almost anything! ALMOST! DRAKE KING GETS UP AND LEANS AGAINST THE APRON, BUT MYLES SPRINGS THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE DROPKICK THAT SHOOTS DRAKE’S HEAD ALMOST OFF HIS BODY AND HE ROLLS INTO THE BARRICADE! MYLES FEELING THE ENERGY AGAIN, HE RIPS THE PADDING OFF THE BARRICADE AND THROWS IT ON THE FLOOR, OH MAN!!

Rich Russillo: MYLES GRABS DRAKE AND TRIES TO MOUNT HIM ON HIS SHOULDER AGAIN, BUT DRAKE WORMS HIS WAY OUT THE BACKDOOR AND NOW PICKS MYLES UP! HE DROPS MYLES FACE FIRST ONTO THAT EXPOSED STEEL BARRICADE! MYLES TEETH AND NOSE MUST’VE BROKEN OVER THAT STEEL AS HE GRABS HIS FACE AND DRAKE PROCEEDS TO RAM HIS HEAD INTO THE BARRICADE! OVER AND OVER, DRAKE KING IS POSSESSED RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: HE SLAMS MYLES’ HEAD INTO THAT STEEL SO MANY TIMES BEFORE FINALLY THROWING HIM BACK TO THE FLOOR! DRAKE KING HAS TO BE EAW’S MOST VIOLENT AND MOST CRUEL COMPETITOR, WORDS CANNOT DO JUSTICE THE ABSOLUTE HORRORS THAT GO THROUGH THIS MAN’S HEAD!

Persephone: What is he?! Drake just stuck the head of Myles through the barricade, he’s got him trapped by the neck in the steel barricade as Drake now jumps over into the crowd- HE PICKS UP A CHAIR! MYLES HEAD IS EXPOSED AND HIS ARMS ARE TRAPPED ON THE OTHER SIDE, DRAKE USING THE BARRICADE AS HIS OWN PERSONAL GUILLOTINE! DRAKE FOLDS UP THE CHAIR, HOISTING IT ABOVE HIS HEAD AND RIPPING IT BACK DOWN-

Rich Russillo: MYLES USED ALL HIS MIGHT AND GOT HIS NECK FREE JUST IN TIME! MYLES AVOIDS THE CHAIR SHOT AND NOW HE JUMPS ON THE BARRICADE, HE LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND FIRES A DROPKICK TO THE CHAIR THAT SLAMS INTO THE FACE OF DRAKE! WHAT A MOVE FROM MYLES AS HE DROPS DRAKE TO THE FLOOR AND THE FANS CLEAR OUT FOR DEAR LIFE! MYLES WITH A DROPKICK TO THE FACE AS HE TRIES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET!!

James Peters: These two will fight anywhere and everywhere! Myles grabs Drake by the neck and throws him out further into the arena! He throws Drake King forward and then picks him up again as they begin to make their way towards the entrance stage! Myles is dog walking Drake through the crowd- but Drake fires back with a back elbow! Straight to the face of Myles! BUT MYLES NOW GRABS DRAKE AND SLAMS HIS HEAD INTO A STEEL RAILING! DRAKE IS STUNNED AND MYLES NOW TAKES HIM UP A FLIGHT OF STAIRS ON THE SIDE OF THE STAGE-

Rich Russillo: MYLES HAS DRAKE AT LEAST 25 FEET IN THE AIR AS HE NOW STANDS ATOP SOME EQUIPMENT BOXES IN FRONT OF THE FANS! MYLES IS GOING TO DROP DRAKE FROM THE SKIES AS HE LIFTS DRAKE KING ON HIS SHOULDERS- OH MY GOD, APPROACHING THE EDGE AS HE STANDS ALMOST 30 FEET ABOVE THE SIDE OF THE ENTRANCE STAGE! MYLES, MYLES-

James Peters: NO! DRAKE KING ESCAPED OUT THE BACK DOOR AND HE SHOVES MYLES FORWARD- NO!

Rich Russillo: WAIT- MYLES WAS ABLE TO DROP DOWN AND SAVE HIMSELF BEFORE GOING OFF THE EDGE, BUT DRAKE CLOCKS HIM WITH A RIGHT HAND! NOW USING ALL HIS MIGHT TO SHOVE MYLES OFF, BUT MYLES FIRES BACK WITH A HEADBUTT THAT PUTS A MASSIVE BLOOD STAIN ON HIS OWN FACE FROM THE AMERICAN PSYCHO FACED LOOKING DRAKE KING RIGHT NOW! MYLES LIFTS DRAKE ON HIS SHOULDER ONE MORE TIME-

Persephone: HE’S GONNA-

James Peters: DRAKE DROPS OFF THE SHOULDER AGAIN WITHA VICIOUS ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF MYLES’ HEAD! HE NOW TAKES MYLES’ BACK AND PUTS HIM IN A CHOKEHOLD! DRAKE KING COULD PUT MYLES TO SLEEP, MYLES WAS ALREADY ON WOBBLY LEGS FROM ALL THE BLOOD LOSS, DRAKE KING NOW IS GOING TO PUT HIM OUT AND SHOVE HIM OFF THE EDGE! MYLES IS FADING, HIS FACE TURNING PURPLE- NOW WHITE! DRAKE LETS HIM GO AS MYLES-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING CATCHES THE FOREARM AS MYLES FALLS- HE JUST SAVED MYLES FROM FALLING!?! HE SAVES HIM AS HE HOLDS HIS FOREARM AND DANGLES MYLES OVER THE EDGE-

James Peters: OH NO, HE DIDN’T SAVE HIM!

Drake King: THIS IS WHAT YOU DESERVE.

CRASHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Persephone: DRAKE KING LETS GO OF THE HAND AND MYLES FALLS 30 FEET DOWN INTO THE EQUIPMENT AND THE FLOOR, SPARKS FLYING EVERYWHERE AND CABLES EXPLODING UNDER THE CRUSHING WEIGHT OF MYLES BODY, HE’S NOWHERE TO BE FOUND AND IS LAYING UNDER ALL THAT RUBBLE!!! OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD!!!

Rich Russillo: THAT’S THE END OF THIS MATCH, DRAKE KING HAS WON THIS MATCH AND THE REFEREE IS GONNA CALL IT! WE SAW DRAKE DO THIS TO JUSTIN WINDGATE A FEW MONTHS BACK, HE BEAT HIM SO BAD THE REFEREE STEPPED IN AND CALLED FOR THE STOPPAGE, THAT’S WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN RIGHT NOW!

(Drake King slips and winces his way down the steps and equipment boxes as he’s forced to make his way through part of the crowd to get to the stage.)

James Peters: Drake King is walking through the most horrible and negative crowd reaction I’ve ever heard in all my time here in EAW. This is true disdain from these fans as Drake walks next to them. He makes his way onto the stage and stares hard at that pile of destroyed equipment, electricity and flooring as Myles still hasn’t been heard from. Dear lord, Drake turns his head and begins to walk down the ramp towards the ring.

Rich Russillo: After all this, he makes that same walk down to the ring as he did when the match first began, yet somehow, without the music and the energy, it’s much more horrifying now to see him caped in layers and layers of blood, with Myles in a grave as Drake walks up the steps and makes his way into the ring.

(The referee is on the stage, calling for Myles and looking for him. Myles is unheard from and the referee knows what he has to do.)

(He starts to raise his hand to signal for the timekeeper to ring the bell-)

(When suddenly-)

(The crowd begins to roar as Drake turns his head back in disbelief.)

James Peters: MYLES! MYLES JUST STUCK HIS HANDS OUT OF THAT PILE OF RUBBLE AND IS NOW CLIMBING HIS WAY OUT! DRAKE CAN’T BELIEVE IT, WE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! JUST WHEN IT SEEMED LIKE ALL HOPE WAS LOST, MYLES CAME BACK AND HE SAYS THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER YET! HE WON’T LET THIS GO, THIS IS A NEW LEVEL OF TOUGHNESS WE’RE SEEING FROM THE EAW CHAMPION RIGHT NOW!

Rich Russillo: MYLES DRAGS HIS BODY DOWN THE RAMP, WINCING AND LIMPING TO THE RING, BUT HE WON’T SAY DIE! MYLES ROLLS INTO THE RING, STRUGGLING TO GET TO HIS FEET AS DRAKE KING ONLY WATCHES WITH A LOOK OF SCORN ON HIS FACE! MYLES STANDS UP AND FACES DRAKE AS THESE TWO GO FACE TO FACE ONE MORE TIME! THIS TIME IT’S MYLES WHO SHOWS THAT THIS WILL NEVER BE OVER AS LONG AS HE HAS A SAY! MYLES BLASTS DRAKE WITH A FOREARM, DRAKE RETURNS, THE FIGHT IS ON AGAIN!

James Peters: THIS TIME BOTH MEN JUST WRESTLE ONE ANOTHER TO THE GROUND, SCRAMBLING AND FIGHTING TO THROW ANY PUNCH AND KICK THEY HAVE, JUST A DOGFIGHT TO THE DEATH RIGHT NOW! DRAKE GETS ON TOP AND STARTS BLUDGEONING MYLES FACE WITH HIS FOREARMS! NOW A HEADBUTT FROM THE BOTTOM FROM MYLES! MYLES SHOVES DRAKE OFF AND NOW JUMPS WITH TWO KNEES THAT DRIVE THEMSELVES INTO THE BACK OF DRAKE KING’S HEAD!

Rich Russillo: MYLES HAS DRAKE DOWN AS HE NOW GRABS HIS WRISTS, PULLS DRAKE’S FACE INTO ANOTHER BRUTAL KNEE STRIKE! YOU COULD HEAR THE THUD HIS SKULL MADE AGAINST MYLES’ KNEE! MYLES NOW TRAPS DRAKES ARMS IN THE ROPES, HE GETS HIM TANGLED UP IN THE BOTTOM AND MIDDLE ROPE AND HAS DRAKE’S ARMS TRAPPED! MYLES UNSHEATHES THE KNEE AND PULLS DOWN THE KNEE PAD, IT’S ALMOST WEIRD NOW TO SEE A PART OF THE BODY WITHOUT BLOOD OR BRUISES OR CUTS ALL OVER IT!

James Peters: MYLES SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES DRIVES THAT BARE KNEE INTO DRAKE’S FACE! NOW GETTING UP, BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES AND DELIVERING ONE MORE THUNDEROUS ONE STRIKE FROM THAT EXPOSED KNEE TO DRAKE’S FACE, DRAKE KING IS OUT COLD RIGHT NOW! MYLES HOLDS DRAKE’S FACE UP AS HE SLAPS HIM AND CURSES AT HIM, MYLES NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES AGAIN AND DRIVES ONE MORE HORRENDOUS KNEE INTO DRAKE’S FACE AS HIS HEAD VIOLENTLY SNAPS BACKWARDS AND THEN DROPS FORWARD!

Persephone: MYLES FREES HIM FROM THE ROPES, DROPS DOWN AND NOW TRIES TO LOCK IN THE “CHECKMAYT”!!!! HE’S GOT THOSE RINGS OF SATURN IN DEEP AS DRAKE IS TOO WEAK TO FIGHT HIM OFF, DRAKE KING CRYING OUT AS MYLES WRENCHES BACK, “CHECKMAYT” MAY FINALLY HAVE DRAKE BEATEN! MYLES RIPS BACK ON THE SHOULDER AND ARM OF DRAKE AS DRAKE KING SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN! DRAKE DRAGS HIMSELF TO THE ROPES BUT THEY WON’T HELP HIM IN THIS MATCH!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE PUTS THE HAND IN THE AIR-

James Peters: HE REACHES BACK AND GRABS MYLES FACE, HE DIGS HIS FINGERS INTO MYLES’ EYES, BUT MYLES WON’T LET GO! BOTH MEN TRYING TO KILL ONE ANOTHER AS MYLES SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN, BUT SO DOES DRAKE!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE GRABS ONE OF THOSE GLASS SHARDS AGAIN AND TRIES TO STAB MYLES WITH IT- MYLES AVOIDS IT AS HE LETS GO OF DRAKE, BUT HE JUMPS BACK AT DRAKE AND GOES FOR A “JUDGMENT DAY”!!!! DRAKE KING’S OWN FINISHING MOVE, BUT DRAKE SLITHERS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE BEFORE MYLES CAN GET TO HIM! NOW MYLES COMES OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CORKSCREW PLANCHA-

SMASH!

Persephone: DRAKE KING BASHES HIM IN THE FACE WITH A- A TIRE IRON THAT HE JUST GRABBED FROM UNDER THE APRON! HE GOT A TIRE IRON AND SLAMMED IT OVER MYLES FACE IN MIDAIR! MYLES IS UNCONSCIOUS AS DRAKE GRABS HIS BODY AND STRUGGLES TO SLIDE HIMM BACK INTO THE RING, USING ALL HIS MIGHT TO SHOVE MYLES BACK IN!

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING ROLLS BACK IN AND NOW STARTS CRACKING THE TIRON IRON OVER THE BODY OF MYLES! THE LEGS AND BODY OF MYLES JUST GETTING BEATEN AS HE COVERS UP DESPERATELY! DRAKE DROPS DOWN AND NOW- OH NO- HE WANTS TO GIVE MYLES A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE! HE LOCKS IN THE “CHECKMAYT” HIMSELF ON MYLES AND USES THE TIRE IRON AS EXTRA LEVERAGE! RIPPING BACK ON THE SHOULDER OF MYLES WITH THAT TIRE IRON CRUSHED AGAINST HIS FACE!

James Peters: DRAKE THRASHING MYLES AROUND AND JUST TRYING TO PUT HIM IN PAIN, DRAKE KING LETS GO AND THROWS THE TIRE IRON UP THE RAMP, HE DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO WIN LIKE THAT! HE JUST WANTED TO TORTURE MYLES! HE IS TRULY DESPICABLE AND NOW TURNS HIS ATTENTION TOWARDS SOMETHING ELSE-

Rich Russillo: Wait, he’s trying to…HE JUST STARTED RIPPING UP THE RING CANVAS, HE REMOVES THE CANVAS AND MATERIAL UNDERNEATH AND EXPOSES THE HARDWOOD FLOORING OF THE RING! HE RIPS IT ALL BACK AND EXPOSES NEARLY HALF OF THE BARE RING AS MYLES KNOWS WHAT’S COMING, BUT HE’S TOO WEARY TO FIGHT BACK! MYLES IS HURT SO BAD, DRAKE KING IS BARELY STILL ON HIS FEET, BUT HE’S STILL IN CONTROL RIGHT NOW!

James Peters: Drake drags Myles to the corner where that ring is exposed, he sits him on the middle turnbuckle, Drake grabbing at his midsection and ribs, taking a knee as Myles is near unconscious on the turnbuckle. Drake stands back up and uses his resolve to painfully put Myles on the top rope. That adrenaline has worn off and both men are in so much pain. Myles is seated on the top rope and barely starting to come to, but Drake has followed him up there! DRAKE KING NOW STANDING ON THE TOP ROPE, TEETERING AND ALMOST FALLING, BUT HE’S DRAGGING MYLES TO HIS FEET-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING HOOKS THE ARM, HE POSTURES UP AND HOISTS MYLES INTO THE AIR WITH A SUPERPLEX ON THAT EXPOSED RINGGGGGGG!!!!! DRAKE KING WITH A MASSIVE SUPERPLEX AND IT SPLATTERS BLOOD ALL OVER THE WOOD OF THE RING AS DRAKE KING STRUGGLES TO STAND MYLES BACKUP FOR THE FALCON ARROW- HE GETS MYLES UP FOR IT-

James Peters: DRAKE DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH STRENGTH AS HE DROPS MYLES BACK TO THE CANVAS AND BOTH MEN FALL! DRAKE DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH, THAT SUPERPLEX MEANT HE LANDED BACK FIRST ON THAT EXPOSED RING AS WELL, BUT HE CRAWLS OVER AND THROWS AN ARM OVER THE BODY OF MYLES, DRAKE GOES FOR THE COVER, DRAKE KING FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: MYLES POWERS OUT AT THREE! THAT WAS SOMEHOW ONLY THE FIRST COVER OF THIS MATCH AS WELL??! MYLES ONLY STAYED IN THIS MATCH BY THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH, HE’S IN TROUBLE RIGHT NOW, BUT DRAKE KING ISN’T MUCH BETTER OFF! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN AND OUT!

(The crowd cheers loudly for both men, especially for Myles as Drake tries to lift his body off the canvas, peeling himself off that bare wood and hanging his head on the bottom rope.)

James Peters: Man, this is some sight. These two are broken and battered, yet still it feels as if we’re back at square one because no man will quit. Neither one will give this up, what an incredible match we’re witnessing. No matter who wins tonight, I doubt it’ll be the end of the bitter relationship between these two.

Rich Russillo: I absolutely agree, but Drake looks like he’s going to be the one to end it tonight as he’s the first to his feet and tries to peel Myles off the canvas! He pulls him up and hooks his arms- DRAKE DRIVES MYLES’ HEAD DOWN ONTO THE EXPOSED RING WITH AN “ASCENSION”!!! DRAKE KING DRILLS HIS HEAD INTO THE WOOD, MYLES SLOUCHES ON HIS SIDE AS DRAKE FALLS OVER AND LIFELESSLY GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER ON MYLES!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

James Peters: MYLES WITH FOOT ON THE ROPE! THE REFEREE CAUGHT IT AND THE FOOT IS ON THE ROPES! I THINK DRAKE THINKS HE’S WON! MYLES IS STILL IN IT AND DRAKE LOOKS AT THE REFEREE IN CONFUSION! HE’S TOO TIRED TO BE ANGRY AND TO BEATEN TO COMPLAIN, HE JUST DROPS HIS HEAD BACKWARDS ONTO THE BODY OF MYLES AND THESE TWO LAY IN THE RING, SURROUNDED BY STAINS OF THEIR OWN BLOOD AND DEBRIS EVERYWHERE!

Rich Russillo: Drake King gets to his knees and puts his head on the canvas, this is incredible. Drake King is a mess and he’s kneeling in the middle of the ring with his head pushed against the canvas. These two burn another bridge of their history with every second they fight, it’s almost tragic, but they’re determined to end one another.

James Peters: Drake King up to his feet, he looks at Myles, who is on a knee, he stares at him with nothing but black eyes, no remorse, no mercy, no love. DRAKE RAISES HIS FIST-

Rich Russillo: MYLES WITH A LOW-BLOW! MYLES WITH A LOW-BLOW THAT STUNS DRAKE AND PUTS HIM DOWN TO HIS KNEES!

James Peters: MYLES QUICKLY USES EVERYTHING HE’S GOT TO POWER HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET, FALLING DOWN AND GETTING BACK UP! MYLES RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND THROWS ANOTHER KNEE FROM THAT BARE KNEE TO THE FACE OF DRAKE! HE THROWS THE KNEE AND IT CRUSHES THE JAW OF DRAKE KING, WHO FALLS DOWN ON HIS FACE- MYLES, OH MY GOD!!!! MYLES LIFTS DRAKE TO HIS FEET-

Rich Russillo: MYLES PUTS DRAKE ON HIS SHOULDERS AND SPINS HIM AROUND FOR A “DE FACTO”!!!! THE “DE FACTO” STRAIGHT TO THE CANVAS AS MYLES PUTS EVERYTHING HE HAS INTO AND FALLS DOWN INTO THE COVER! MYLES FOR THE TITLE, FOR MINERVA, FOR HIMSELF!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(The crowd sits in silence…)

Rich Russillo: KICKOUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!! DRAKE KING KICKS OUT AS MYLES FACE TURNS TO A LOOK OF SHEER DOUBT AND HE FALLS TO THE CANVAS IN PAIN!!!!

(The crowd explodes, then the reaction turns to disappointment as Myles is so hurt he can’t get himself back up. The crowd quickly goes from a buzz to an eerie quiet as the camera focuses on the distressed face of Myles.)

Rich Russillo: HOW IS DRAKE KING STILL IN THIS?!? IF MYLES HAD GOTTEN THAT “DE FACTO” ON THAT BARE WOOD, HE SURELY WOULD’VE HAD DRAKE BEAT! HE SHOULD’VE ANYWAY, HOW IS THIS MATCH STILL GOING!?

(Myles begins to get to his feet, graning and yelling in pain.)

James Peters: Myles drops back down to the canvas and rolls out of the ring- he’s searching under the apron for something? After all this, what more could he possibly- OH MAN, HE PULLS OUT A ROLL OF RAZOR WIRE! HE’S GOT THAT ROLE OF RAZOR WIRE AND HE STANDS AGAINST THE BARRICADE LOOKING AT DRAKE KING, WHO IS STARTING TO COME TO AS MYLES TRIES TO REGAIN ANY KIND OF ENERGY TO GET BACK IN THE RING AND FINISH THIS MATCH!

Rich Russillo: MYLES INTO THE RING WITH THAT ROLL OF RAZOR WIRE- DRAKE KING BLASTS HIM WITH A LARIAT FROM HELL OUT OF NOWHERE! DRAKE KING USED THAT TIME TO RECOVER AND HE FLOORS MYLES WITH THAT CLOTHESLINE- NOW DRAKE PICKS UP THE ROLL OF RAZOR WIRE AND HE STARTS WRAPPING IT AROUND MYLES’ NECK! OH NO, DRAKE PUTS THE WIRE AROUND MYLES NECK, HE TURNS HIM OVER AND NOW PLANTS A FOOT ON THE BACK OF MYLES HEAD AND STARTS PULLING THE RAZOR WIRE WITH ALL HIS FORCE-

Persephone: HOLY SH-

James Peters: DRAKE KING HAS LET GO-

(The lights in the arena dim as the fans begin to make noise and look around.)

(A spotlight appears on the stage…)

(The fans begin to explode in cheers as Drake throws Myles to the canvas in a pool of blood.)

(“Blood, Milk, and Sky” by White Zombie begins to play as the fans erupt.)

James Peters: OHHHH MYYYY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!! IT’S MINERVA, MINERVA STORMING DOWN THE RAMP AND FLYING BY THE FANS!!! SHE LOST HER TITLE TO DONOVAN DUKE’S 24/7 CASH IN EARLIER TONIGHT, BUT THAT WON’T STOP HER FROM SAVING MYLES AND TAKING HER REVENGE ON THE MAN WHO BRANDED HER AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION!!!!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA SLIDES IN THE RING AND BLASTS DRAKE IN THE FACE WITH A BIG BOOT! HE HITS THE GROUND AND SHE STARTS HAMMERING AWAY ON HIM! MINERVA IS HERE AND SHE’S BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF DRAKE KING!

(The fans have an absolutely volcanic reaction for Minerva as she continues to blast Drake with punches.)

Persephone: MINERVA WITH ELBOWS NOW, PUNCHES AND FOREARMS, SHE JUST WANTS TO HURT DRAKE KING FOR EVERYTHING HE’S DONE! SHE GIVES HER ATTENTION TO MYLES AND QUICKLY GETS THAT RAZOR WIRE OFF HIS NECK! SHE TAKES IT OFF HIM AND NOW GOES BACK TO DRAKE, SHE STARTS FEEDING THE RAZOR WIRE INTO DRAKE’S MOUTH AND SHOVING IT DOWN HIS THROAT AS HE VIOLENTLY COUGHS UP BLOOD AND TRIES TO FIGHT HER OFF!

James Peters: DRAKE TRIES TO GET AWAY FROM MINERVA, SCRAMBLING UP TO HIS FEET AND RUNNING TO THE CORNER, COUGHING AND HACKING UP BLOOD, MINERVA IS STILL ON HIM! DRAKE WITH A DESPERATION BOOT TO THE MIDSECTION- MINERVA CATCHES IT AND-

Rich Russillo: “THE DARKKKKKKKKKKKKK”!!!!! “THE DARK”!!!!!! SHE SPITS THAT NASTY BLACK MIST ALL OVER THE FACE OF DRAKE KING AND HIS ONCE RED FACE IS NOW BLACK WITH THE MIST OF MINERVA AS HE FALLS TO THE GROUND AND ROLLS AROUND PAIN AND ANGUISH!

(Minerva grabs Myles and softly rolls him out of the ring as she meets him on the outside and keeps his body in her lap. She calls for a towel, the ringside workers hand her one as she wipes the blood away from Myles’ face and neck.)

James Peters: This is legitimately insane. Minerva is down here wiping God knows how much blood from Myles’ body and Drake King is still in the ring fighting desperately to get that black mist out of his eyes.

Rich Russillo: Minerva with a somber look on her face as Myles..Myles is unresponsive as Minerva holds him and tries to wake him back up. He opens his eyes and looks at Minerva, holding her neck as he tucks his head against her chest.

(The eaw crowd starts to ugly cry.)

Persephone: Minerva came to the rescue of Myles and is now his only comfort in what has been the worst night of Myles’ career.

(She continues to hold him, before resting him against the barricade softly as his neck still has puncture marks all around it and his scalp drips blood into his now all red beard. Myles rests against the barricade as Minerva assures him that everything will be alright.)

(Myles smiles at her, a good sight as it’s the first time he’s cracked a smile all night and they go forehead to forehead as he’s barely able to remain conscious.)

Rich Russillo: What a moment between these two. A moment Minerva knows can’t last forever, no matter how badly Myles wants it to! She walks over to us and grabs the EAW World Championship from ringside-

(Minerva thoughtfully looks at the EAW Championship, closing her eyes and then dropping her head in disappointment.)

Rich Russillo: She tosses the EAW World Championship into the ring and now- SHE GRABS A CHAIR FROM UNDER THE RING, SHE SLIDES IT UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE, MINERVA SLIDES IN AFTER IT-

James Peters: “JUDGEMENT DAY”!!!! OH MY GOD, DRAKE STOMPED HER HEAD OFF THAT STEEL CHAIR SHE SLID IN THE RING AND NOW HE FALLS TO HIS KNEES AND GIVES AN EVIL LOOK AT MYLES! MYLES SCREAMS OUT AND TRIES TO GET BACK IN THE RING, BUT HE FALLS DOWN AND NEARLY GOES UNCONSCIOUS! HE’S CRAWLING HIS WAY TOWARDS THE APRON, BUT DRAKE KING GRABS THE CHAIR AND SLAMS IT AGAINST THE BACK OF MINERVA’S SKULL!

(The crowd is appalled as Drake King looks down at Minerva and places his boot on her neck.)

Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING HAS REACHED A NEW DEPTH OF SAVAERGY TONIGHT, THIS IS THE EPITOME OF VIOLENCE AS DRAKE KING ONCE MORE LOOKS LIKE HE IS FUCKING POSSESSED! HE BRINGS THE CHAIR UP AND SLAMS IT AGAINST MINERVA’S SKULL ONE MORE TIME AND HER BODY CONVULSES AS SHE LAYS THERE UNCONSCIOUS!

Persephone: MYLES CAN’T EVEN BRING HIMSELF TO GET BACK IN THE RING, HE HAS SO LITTLE STRENGTH LEFT! HE CRAWLS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND DRAKE DRAGS HIM BY HIS HAIR TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, HE MAKES HIM LOOK AT MINERVA AND STARTS SHOUTING AT HIM AGAIN!!!

Drake King: YOU DID THIS TO HER.

Persephone: OH MY GOD, DRAKE KING THROWS MYLES BACK DOWN ON THE GROUND AND GRABS THE CHAIR ONE MORE TIME, HE UNFOLDS IT AND WRAPS IT AROUND HER NECK- OH MY GOD- OH MY GOD!!! NO!!! DRAKE, DON’T-

Rich Russillo: HE FLIES OFF THE ROPES AND LUNGES FORWARD LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL WITH A “JUDGMENT DAY”-

James Peters: MYLES BLASTS DRAKE IN THE FACE WITH HIS EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AND DROPS HIM TO THE CANVAS!!! OH MY GOD, MYLES SLAMMED THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP INTO THE FACE OF DRAKE AND NOW GRABS MINERVA AND GETS THAT CHAIR OFF HER HEAD! MYLES LAYS HER DOWN IN THE CORNER OF THE RING AND HE IS INFURIATED! HE LOOKS AT DRAKE WITH MURDEROUS INTENT!

Rich Russillo: MYLES UNLOADING WITH THE CHAIR AS HE SLAMS IT OVER DRAKE’S SPINE, DRAKE KING ROLLING AROUND AND TRYING TO AVOID IT, BUT MYLES UNLEASHES HELL WITH THIS CHAIR AND HE HITS HIM SO MANY TIMES THAT THE CHAIR BREAKS OVER DRAKE’S BACK AND MYLES DROPS DOWN WITH SOME HUGE POWER PUNCHES TO THE FACE OF DRAKE! DRAKE’S FACE IS BATTERED AND HE ISN’T FIGHTING BACK ANYMORE! HE’S JUST LAYING THERE TAKING THESE SWINGS FROM MYLES!

James Peters: I THINK THAT’S IT- THE REFEREE IS STEPPING IN AND HE PULLS MYLES OFF! HE SAYS THIS ONE IS OVER!!!

Rich Russillo: WAIT- NOW IT’S MYLES WHO SAYS THIS ONE ISN’T DONE YET! HE DOESN’T CARE WHAT THE REFEREE SAYS, HE WON’T LET THIS MATCH END AS HE GETS IN THE REFEREE’S FACE AND BACKS HIM INTO THE CORNER! MYLES PUSHES HIM AND WARNS HIM NOT TO END IT YET! MYLES HAS LOST HIS MIND!

(Myles looks at Drake and just as soon as he does- Minerva calls for him. Myles’ attention turns to her as she sits up weakly in the corner.)

Persephone: Now it’s Myles who will take care of Minerva as he tries to check on her and the referee attends to Drake King, who is still not moving and his face is nearly caved in. Wow.

James Peters: Minerva is looking at Myles, a tear running down her face as she tells him to finish this.

(Myles rolls Minerva under the bottom rope and helps her to the outside as she now sits against the barricade, still in bad pain and dizzy from those thunderous chair shots and “Judgment Day” from Drake King.)

James Peters: Myles now walks to the middle of the ring, falls to his knees and covers his face in his hands. Beyond all the blood in his eyes and on his face, he looks like he’s about to break down. This has been so taxing for him, he’s losing himself in this vengeful vendetta to Drake King, who himself is only just now crawling to the corner in an absolute mess. Even for Drake, who tonight has been the roster’s most evil and heinous superstar we might’ve ever seen, it’s a horrible sight to see him like this, even for Myles.

Rich Russillo: Myles looks at Drake and he shakes his head. He can’t believe where they’re at right now and his eyes look as if he’s looking back on all the days they used to call each other brothers. Days they would’ve done anything for each other, now they’re doing that to each other. This is horrible.

(Myles looks up at the sky, he looks so drained and so horrified at this scene of carnage.)

James Peters: Drake King looks at Myles and shares that same look back. A look that so quickly evolves into one of disdain as Drake lunges to grab the EAW World Championship-

Rich Russillo: MYLES WITH A JUMPING KNEE TO THE FACE ONE MORE TIME- NO! DRAKE EVADES IT AND MYLES MISSES IT! DRAKE TAKES HIS BACK AND SHOVES HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! MYLES GOES CHEST FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS HIS BODY MAKES A THUD AND HE WANDERS BACK OUT INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! DRAKE KING WITH AN IRISH WHIP THAT SENDS MYLES THROUGH THE ROPES- BUT HE CAUGHT HIMSELF! HE CAUGHT HIMSELF AND VAULTS HIMSELF BACK THROUGH THE ROPES!

James Peters: BOOM! DRAKE KING CAUGHT HIM WITH A SUPERKICK AS MYLES FLUNG HIMSELF WITH A SLINGSHOT THROUGH THE ROPES! DRAKECAUGHT HIM AND MYLES IS NOW HUNG UP ON THE MIDDLE ROPE- DRAKE KING STORMS TOWARDS HIM AND STOMPS MYLES’ HEAD INTO THE CANVAS WITH A “JUDGMENT DAY”!!!! OH MY GOD, DRAKE GOT HIM AND HE STUCK HIS HEAD TO THE BARE WOOD FLOOR WITH A JUDGMENT DAY! THAT’S IT AS DRAKE DRAGS HIM AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND DROPS INTO A COVER ON MYLES!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Persephone: MINERVA YANKS MYLES OUT OF THE RING AND THE PIN DOESN’T TAKE!!!!!

(The EAW crowd explodes as Drake King smashes his fists against the canvas.)

Persephone: DRAKE IS SO MAD! HE DOESN’T CARE HOW HURT OR TIRED HE IS, HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES!! HE FLIES OUT OF THE RING WITH A SUICIDIE DIVE THAT TAKES MINERVA OUT! SHE FALLS TO THE GROUND AS DRAKE KING GETS UP AND HE DRAGS HER BY HER HAIR, HE SLINGS HER OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD!

Rich Russillo: BANG!

Rich Russillo: MYLES CRASHED INTO DRAKE WITH A JUMPING BOOT THAT ALMOST TOOK DRAKE’S JAW CLEAN OFF HIS FACE! NOW MYLES THROWS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! MYLES SENT DRAKE BARRELING INTO THE BARRICADE AND OH BOY, HE’S CLEARING OFF OUR TABLE! MYLES THROWING THE TABLE COVER AND THE MONITORS EVERYWHERE AS HE APPROACHES DRAKE KING AGAIN! HE PUTS DRAKE ON THE TABLE AND MYLES GETS UP THERE WITH HIM! HE LIFTS DRAKE UP-

James Peters: WAIT- MYLES PUTS HIM IN TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER POSITION! OH MY GOD- MYLES SPINS AROUND AND DRIVES DRAKE HEADFIRST THROUGH THE TABLE AND ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR WITH A “PRINCES KILLER” ALA MINERVA!!!! MYLES TOOK MINERVA’S FINISHING MOVE AND HE USED IT TO PUT DRAKE THROUGH THE TABLE, OH MY GOD!!!!

(Crowd chants; HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!”)

Rich Russillo: MYLES ABSOLUTELY DECIMATES DRAKE AND HE KNOWS THIS IS HIS TIME! THIS IS HIS CHANCE TO PUT DRAKE KING AWAY! HE THROWS HIS BODY BACK INTO THE RING AND NOW MYLES IS IN THERE AFTER HIM! HE SCREAMS OUT A CRY OF PURE ENERGY AND LOOKS BACK AT MINERVA, WHO IS RINGSIDE AGAIN AND TELLS MYLES TO DO IT! HE HOOKS DRAKE’S ARM AND SPINS HIM AROUND…”DE FACTO” ON THE EXPOSED RINGGGGGG!!!!!

Persephone: OH MY GOD, THE SOUND DRAKE’S BODY MADE WAS SICKENING AS MYLES NOW GOES TO COVER HIM! MYLES FOR THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: DRAKE WITH A FOOT ON THE ROPE!!!! ALLOLWOLFLDODOLWWFOLO!!!!

Rich Russillo: :damn:

Persephone: HOLY SHIT!!

(Crowd explodes in disbelief as Drake’s foot is shown still on that bottom rope, no movement from the rest of his body, managing to get it up there at the last second.)

Rich Russillo: MYLES DOESN’T KNOW HOW IT’S POSSIBLE! NEITHER DO WE! SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT WHO HE IS, DON’T EVER QUESTION THE FIGHTING SPIRIT OF DRAKE KING! HIS TOUGHNESS IS RIVALED ONLY BY THE MAN HE’S IN THE RING WITH RIGHT NOW! WHAT A MATCH THIS IS!

James Peters: MYLES HAS TO LET GO OF ALL THAT ANGER! HE NEEDS TO SEE WHAT CAN BE AHEAD OF HIM! HE’S AT HIS HEIGHT IN EAW AND IS SHOWING THAT HE TRULY IS AMONG THE GREATEST THIS COMPANY HAS SEEN IN YEARS, BUT HE NEEDS TO FINISH THE JOB!

Persephone: HE KNOWS THAT! HE GRABS DRAKE AND KNOWS THAT HE NEEDS TO PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF THIS CHAPTER OF HIS CAREER AND LET HIMSELF BECOME THE BEST IN THE WORLD! HE LIFTS DRAKE UP AND SLINGS HIS ARM AROUND HIM-

Rich Russillo: DRAKE WITH A LAST MINUTE ENZIGURI TO THE FACE OF MYLES! IT ROCKS HIM AS MYLES STUMBLES BACK! DRAKE FALLS DOWN TO THE MAT AND HE STORMS TOWARDS MYLES- “VICTORIAAAAAAAAA”!!!!!! MYLES POPPED DRAKE INTO THE AIR AND DELIVERED A KNEE STRIKE ON HIS WAY DOWN AS DRAKE KING SLAMS HIS BLOODY BODY TO THE CANVAS!

James Peters: MYLES LIFTS HIM UP, PUTS HIS ARM AROUND HIS SHOULDER- HE LOOKS AT MINERVA ONE MORE TIME, THEN HE LOOKS AT DRAKE KING’S UNCONSCIOUS BODY, HIS EYES CLOSED AND HIS FACE DROPPING! MYLES HAS TO DO THIS FOR HIMSELF! HE KNOWS THAT HE HAS TO PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN FOR HIS OWN SAKE BEFORE ANYONE ELSE’S!

Persephone: HE HOISTS DRAKE INTO THE AIR, THROWING HIM UP AND THEN PLANTING HIS KNEES ON THE BACK OF DRAKE’S NECK WITH AN “INFINITE VOID” THAT POPS DRAKE ALL THE WAY BACK FORWARD AND HE LANDS ON HIS FACE! HE’S DONE AND MYLES GOES INTO THE COVER- MYLES FOR THE WIN! TO RETAIN HIS EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

DING! DING! DING!

(“Enemy Strike” ensues as a look of sheer relief crosses Myles’ face and he continues to lay on the body of Drake King.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, HERE IS YOUR WINNER- ANDDDDD STILLLLLLL!!!!! THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONNNNNNNNNN, MYLESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

(Myles is handed the EAW World Championship as he looks at it solemnly, looks at Drake, then looks back at his championship and he raises it into the air. Gone is the New Eden way of life and here is the age of Myles as the EAW World Champion.)

(Minerva rolls into the ring and hugs Myles as he falls into her arms and can barely hold himself up. He falls down to his knees, rolls out of the ring and falls onto the floor. He sets the title down beside him and tries to catch his breath as he looks up at the lights in the arena.)

(The fans cheer as Minerva stays in the ring and looks at the body of Drake King, who is too badly beaten to even cooperate with medical staff that is trying to help him.)

(Myles looks in the ring as Minerva still ominously towers over Drake King. Minerva

(An eerie feeling takes over the air as Minerva’s face grows increasingly sour and Drake starts to look at her. His face covered in blood, he’s too tired and hurt to speak-)

Rich Russillo: MINERVA- MINERVA KICKS DRAKE IN THE FACE! NOW PUSHING MEDICAL ASIDE AND DRAGGING DRAKE TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! MYLES STILL ON THE GROUND AS MINERVA PICKS DRAKE UP AND SAYS THAT HE’S GONNA PAY!

James Peters: MINERVA WALKS DRAKE OVER TO THAT EXPOSED RING AND LIFTS HIM UP- SPINS HIM AROUND AND PLANTS HIM SKULL FIRST WITH AN “ATLAS FALLS” BRAINBUSTER AS DRAKE KING HITS THE WOOD IN A PUDDLE OF BLOOD AND HIS BODY STARTING TO SHAKE AND QUIVER! OH MY GOD, I HATE HIM TOO, BUT STOP THIS! HE’S HAD ENOUGH!

Rich Russillo: MINERVA WARNS THE MEDICAL STAFF AND TELLS THEM TO STAY AWAY! SHE GRABS THAT RAZOR WIRE AGAIN AND SHE WRAPS IT AROUND DRAKE’S HEAD! SHE WRAPS THE WIRE AROUND HIS SKULL AND NOW AROUND HIS FACE! SHE LIFTS HIM UP ONE MORE TIME AND SPINS HIM AROUND INTO A HORRIFIC BRAINBUSTER!!! ANOTHER “ATLAS FALLS” AND DRAKE IS SURROUNDED BY A GROWING POOL OF HIS OWN BLOOD THAT MINERVA DRAGS HER HANDS THROUGH AND WIPES ON HER OWN FACE!

(Myles grabs her leg from the outside and tells her that they should go, that enough has gone down tonight.)

James Peters: Of all voices of a reason, it’s Myles who comes to Drake’s rescue after all that, even he can see how grizzly that sight is. I have no idea what kind of condition Drake King will be in once he is taken to a local medical facility :lupe:.

(Drake King doesn’t move a muscle as he lays on that wood and the blood oozes through the cracks in the ring construction, now running off the side of the ring and dripping onto the floor.)

James Peters: I’m at a loss for words right now- this match and this night has just been-

(Myles is helped up the ramp by Minerva, his title draped over his shoulder as he barely manages his way. They reach the top of the ramp as Minerva looks back at the body of Drake King, stares at him for about 5 seconds with a malevolent glare, before she continues with Myles behind the curtain.)

(One final shot of Drake King is shown inside the ring as he still hasn’t moved and medical officials strap him into a backboard. His neck is stabilized and they begin to move him out of the ring. Some fans cheer and some fans still sit in disbelief as to what has just unfolded. Drake is taken up the ramp and off the side of the stage into the dark.)

(The destroyed ring is shown having ripped canvas everywhere, blood stains over the wood and the regular mat, tables destroyed and broken glass all over the place, barricades and chairs are strewn everywhere. A still shot of the ring is shown after a long zoom out and then the shot cuts to black.)

[SCREENBAR – Voltage, January 31st, 2021.]

(A video package begins to play, and it starts off showing a clip from Voltage, January 31st, 2021. Drake King is seen addressing Minerva’s actions throughout the King of Elite tournament of that year, as well as Myles’ decision to stand beside her. This would bring out Myles, who makes it clear that even if Minerva loves to compete for Championships and find success for herself, Myles is able to tolerate it because of his love for her. This leads to Myles explaining to Drake that while he does want to see EAW change, the only way for it to change is by taking away what everyone wants, which is why he was fine with helping Minerva throughout the tournament. Drake King begins to understand, but when Minerva walks out she makes it clear that she doesn’t care whether or not Drake approves of her actions. She says that she does want Championships, she does want success, and if Drake tries to stop her or Myles she would have no problem driving a stake through his heart. Despite the threat Drake seems to be pleased with how the conversation went, saying they had much more to talk about, which Minerva denies.)

(The camera fades to an undisclosed area, where we see Minerva alone, sitting in a chair in front of the camera.)

Minerva: This all started a year ago. Drake King was doing the same thing he’s still doing a year later, shitting on everyone else for not doing things his way. I won’t deny that Myles and I got ourselves involved in the King of Elite tournament even outside of our own matches, but in the end we were just doing what we felt was necessary, and Drake was never in any position to judge us for that. I should’ve known from the start that someone like Drake couldn’t be trusted. Everything he’s ever said was bullshit, and he shouldn’t have ever been entertained in the first place. Back in 2021 I wanted the exact same thing that I do now: to succeed. I’ve always strived to be the best at what I do, and I don’t care what anyone has to say about that, let alone Drake King of all people. I was on the path to becoming a World Champion once again, and that one conversation ruined all of it.

(The camera transitions to a separate area, this time showing Drake King sitting in front of the camera.)

Drake King: The King of Elite tournament was a nightmare. It always is, and early last year I tried to boycott the tournament because it was arguably at its worst. During the tournament I took the time to address the two people who I believed were the direct causes of an already unnecessary tournament spiraling out of control. In the end, I actually learned a pretty valuable lesson, one that I wish I remembered before New Eden ever became a thing. Some people aren’t going to change, and the only way you’ll ever get anything done is to take away everything they’re fighting for. Myles told me that just to defend Minerva, but in the end she was exactly the type of person Myles was talking about. She’s the type of Elitist that doesn’t listen to reason, which is exactly why we’re in the situation that we’re in right now. Minerva can’t be in EAW, and I wish Myles would have realized that from the very start. If he did, I wouldn’t be sitting here right now.

(The camera transitions one more time, this time to the EAW World Champion Myles, who is also sitting in front of a camera.)

Myles: One year ago, things were different. I see things way differently now than I used to, and looking back I think I can say that one of my biggest mistakes was telling Drake that the only way to change this company is through force. At the time I really believed that there was no point trying to reason with anyone because they were the problem, so I had no problem trying to help Minerva win the King of Elite tournament since it meant nobody else could. I told Drake what I was doing, and that I believed it made sense taking these accolades for ourselves all so nobody else could have them, but I guess it took someone like Drake, someone as greedy, someone as selfish, and someone with as big of an ego as him adopting that mindset to realize how flawed it was. The real problem this company has is people like Drake King, and the longer Drake gets to stick around and keep spreading the same shit he’s been saying since 2020, the worse things will get.

[SCREENBAR – King of Elite 2021.]

(The video package transitions to just a few weeks later, at King of Elite 2021. By the time King of Elite came around, Drake King would come up with an idea that’d change the way the rest of the year would play out for these three entirely. Myles and Minerva would both be victorious at King of Elite, Minerva defeating Ms. Extreme and Myles defeating Rex McAllister to retain his National Elite Championship. Drake would approach the two backstage, and his idea was to form a stable to accomplish exactly what Myles said to Drake only weeks prior. While Myles felt the need to think about it, Minerva seemed to be against it. That’d change during the triple threat match between Jake Smith, Consuela Rose Ava and Drake, where Minerva and Myles would run out to help Drake after Insurgency’s interference, leading to Drake picking up the victory. The three Elitists would stand tall, and this would lead to the creation of New Eden, a stable dedicated to removing Championships, accolades, and all forms of success, all for “the greater good of EAW”.)

(The camera fades back to Minerva.)

Minerva: New Eden was formed because Myles and I foolishly believed that we’d be able to change EAW by doing whatever Drake King wants. We wasted an entire year feeding into Drake King’s garbage and in the process he not only got to win the Grand Rampage because of our sacrifice, but he became the EAW World Champion because of what we did for him. We gave Drake everything he could have wanted all because we believed in his lies. We believed that he actually wanted to change anything besides the amount of Championships in his resume, and it was a mistake. I lost myself thanks to New Eden. For so long I forgot who I really am, and it’s all because I actually believed in that ridiculous goal. I was as dedicated to changing EAW as everyone else in New Eden. For a while I wanted to see EAW change, when I should’ve been doing exactly what I was before. I should’ve kept looking out for myself, and doing whatever it takes to reach the top of this company.

(Minerva stops speaking, and the camera fades back to Drake King.)

Drake King: New Eden was formed because Myles and I were in agreement that EAW needed to be changed and there was only one way to do so, and unfortunately I put my trust in someone that never cared about anything or anyone but herself. I made the mistake of trusting Minerva to take part in a group that existed for no other reason but to save this company. I’ll admit, for a while it worked. Even though Captain Charisma kept getting in the way, we did stop anyone from winning the Grand Rampage match. We did get rid of Malcolm Jones. We helped put this company into a far better position than it was in before New Eden.. Well, when I say “we” I shouldn’t really be including Minerva, should I? New Eden would have been fine without her. In fact, New Eden would’ve been better off without Minerva there just to reap the rewards of our goal to change this place. It’s just too bad I couldn’t see past Myles’ horrible decision to enable her.

(After this, the camera fades back to the EAW World Champion, Myles.)

Myles: New Eden formed after me, Minerva and Drake King managed to find common ground. Or at least, at the time I thought we did. For a long time I believed things were just going to plan. Minerva and I were doing what we had to do, and so was Drake. I just hadn’t realized what was really going on, and how Drake actually viewed Minerva. Part of that is probably because for a while I had a similar mindset, or better yet, because I saw things that way even before Drake did. I was the one that believed we needed to do whatever it took to change this company even if it meant stooping down to everyone else’s level and taking their Championships from them. I thought that giving Drake a different point of view would help things since he also claimed to want to change EAW. I was wrong. It didn’t help anything, it made things worse, so much worse.

[SCREENBAR – King of Elite 2021 – Voltage November, 2021.]

(Following King of Elite, New Eden would do everything in their power to change Voltage, and the video package would show highlights of that. It shows the match between Minerva and Terry Chambers on Voltage weeks after King of Elite for the EAW Championship, which Raven Roberts would cut short as she looked to gain revenge on Minerva. Following this was the results of Shock Value 2021, where every member of New Eden would come up short against Raven Roberts, TLA in a National Elite Championship match, and Terry Chambers and SOSA Henderson in a triple threat EAW Championship match respectively. Following this would be Grand Rampage 2021. All three members would make it to the final four against Impact, and while Minerva and Myles would have to sacrifice themselves in order to do it, Drake King would eliminate Impact and New Eden would stand tall. New Eden would also stand tall at Pain for Pride, where Minerva won the National Elite Championship against TLA, Myles won the Cash in the Vault briefcase, and Drake King won the EAW World Championship after ending Malcolm Jones’ career. While they’d hold those Championships and the briefcase for the rest of the year, that was not enough for them. Leading up to Territorial Invasion the following season, Captain Charisma made New Eden team Voltage with the condition that had they won, they’d gain control over Voltage for a month. They’d come up short, but soon after they’d get one more chance with an added condition, had Myles and Minerva lost to Donovan Duke and Justin Windgate, New Eden would be disbanded. After a shocking interference from Ms. Extreme New Eden would be victorious, and for the next month they would be in charge. During this month swearing would be banned, various Elitists would be banned from the show, matches would be cancelled, Jake Smith would have to face New Eden in a handicap match, but the biggest change would be a short lived one. The cancellation of the EAW Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber.)

(When the camera returns to Minerva, she is clearly a bit more upset remembering the events that transpired.)

Minerva: For an entire year we did what that little bitch wanted. I should have held the EAW World Championship by now, but I’m not because for an entire year I was focused on New Eden and New Eden only. I put my one hundred percent into making sure we got what we wanted even if it meant I had to let go of my own goals. Throughout 2021 New Eden was moving forward, and that’s because we ALL were dedicated. We all wanted to bring change, and the only person in that group that still had any level of greed in them by the time New Eden gained control of Voltage was the man who started New Eden in the first place. When the time came for New Eden to take control of the brand, there’s no wondering why it was Drake calling all the shots. Does anybody actually believe that either me or Myles would be the one responsible for something as insignificant as swearing being banned? It was Drake. Banning Elitists from the arena, Drake. Cancelling matches, Drake. Cancelling a match that’d put his Championship reign in danger even if it wasn’t the best choice to make at the time, Drake. Two of us actually wanted better for this place. The third wanted better for himself.

(The camera transitions over to Drake King, who just shakes his head before beginning to speak.)

Drake King: Why couldn’t Myles have done something sooner? Myles was close to Minerva long before New Eden was ever a thing. He had so many chances to stop her before I ever entered the picture, but because of him that entire year of New Eden fighting to change EAW gave Minerva everything she could have wanted. Things should have gone differently. We ended the career of Malcolm Jones. We gained control of Voltage, and we could have done so much more if we weren’t being held back by her. New Eden should not have gone the way it did. The plan worked. It was working exactly how it was supposed to, but with someone as self centered as Minerva standing with us, things were always going to fail. It was always going to go downhill, but it really upsets me that things went so far downhill at a time where we had the opportunity to make more change than ever. We had the opportunity for an entire month to make Voltage the ideal wrestling show, and in the end that month was wasted because Minerva and Myles wanted to go behind my back.

(The camera transitions to Myles, and he doesn’t look any happier than Drake or Minerva.)

Myles: I was torn when Drake announced that he’d cancel the Extreme Elimination Chamber, and Minerva knows this. I know what the right call was in the end, but back when New Eden was in control of Voltage, I’ll admit I didn’t see things going the way they did. Drake didn’t trust us the way he used to, and things were starting to fall apart at the worst possible time for us. Things could’ve gone differently had we actually stuck to doing things the way we had for the entire ten months we were a team prior to that moment, and we tried. Minerva tried, I tried, but Drake wasn’t on board. It was around that time where I also started dealing with Cameron Ella Ava, so things between Minerva and Drake ultimately had to be resolved without me. Drake wanted the Extreme Elimination Chamber gone but in the end there was always the knowledge that Captain Charisma would just reinstate it as soon as he returned, and somehow one little obstacle like that is what made us fall apart.

[SCREENBAR – Road to Redemption 2021.]

(Leading up to Road to Redemption it looked like things were finally going New Eden’s way in a way they never have before. Voltage was theirs, and for an entire month they could do whatever they wanted. While Drake used that power to cancel the EAW Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber, that decision would soon be reversed by Minerva. Throughout the weeks since Clash of Kingdoms tensions had been growing between the members of New Eden as it’d appear that they were keeping information from each other. One of the things kept secret was Drake’s decision to cancel the match, and Minerva knew that it wasn’t a good idea, and that as soon as their month in control was over, knowing that there was still time before Road to Redemption Captain Charisma would restore the Chamber and fill it with all of New Eden’s enemies. Minerva and Myles would talk to Drake, and after realizing how stubborn he was about the situation, Minerva decided she had no choice. She’d restore the Extreme Elimination Chamber as Myles already had to face Cameron Ella Ava, who was challenging Myles for payback after the trio took Jamie O’Hara out of action, but to even the odds she’d put herself in the Extreme Elimination Chamber as well. Drake wasn’t happy about this, and seemingly out of spite would make himself and Minerva the first two entrants. Things were not looking good for New Eden, but just before Road to Redemption Minerva and Drake would seemingly end Voltage on the same page. At the event, the match between Myles and Cameron Ella Ava would end in a disqualification as Cameron Ella Ava brutally attacked Myles, leaving things up to Drake and Minerva. Surprisingly the two would work together during the Extreme Elimination Chamber, and in the end they were able to eliminate all of their opponents. In the end Minerva was prepared to leave the Extreme Elimination Chamber, handing Drake the victory, but that’s not how things ended. With Myles right outside of the Chamber, Drake King attacked Minerva and pinned her, leaving Myles with no other choice as soon as the door opened. He’d attack Drake himself, cashing in his Cash in the Vault briefcase on Drake successfully just so he’d no longer be the Champion, before leaving the belt in the Chamber with the laid out Drake King, leaving Road to Redemption with Minerva in his arms, and New Eden no more.)

(The camera fades back to Minerva, but Minerva just remains silent for a few seconds after being forced to relive the events of Road to Redemption. She already had revenge on her mind, but her rage was only fueled even more after having to watch the clip.)

Minerva: I did the right thing. No matter how many times Drake wants to bitch about the fact that he had to defend the Championship, or pin his actions on me or make me out to be the wolf in sheep’s clothing, the entire world saw what really happened. Drake King was about to screw himself over all because he got greedy and let control over Voltage get to his head. Drake King ruined New Eden. He wasted all of our fucking time and threw away everything he built out of paranoia. He was scared that I’d take that Championship from him all because he knew how capable I am of doing so, but I wasn’t. I wasn’t even facing Drake when he stabbed me in the back, but that coward will continue to try and twist the story. He’ll keep trying to make himself look like the victim after what he did to me. I can admit that I made a mistake trusting Drake. I followed him believing that we were capable of great things, and he threw it away when we were at the top of Voltage.

(The camera now transitions to Drake King, who doesn’t take as long to speak after watching the footage.)

Drake King: I didn’t do what I did at Road to Redemption because I wanted to get rid of Minerva, not the way that I do now. I trusted Minerva and I trusted Myles for an entire year, and what did they do? They went behind my back. They went against me when New Eden was supposed to be a unit, and they reversed the best change we could’ve made to Voltage. The Extreme Elimination Chamber being reinstated was a mistake, so I did what’s always done when you do something wrong. I punished Minerva for her wrongdoings, expecting her to pick herself up and learn from her mistakes. Clearly my judgement was wrong, because Minerva already had Myles by her side, ready to strike had I made a move. New Eden died because of Minerva thinking for herself instead of the group. She threw everything we built away all because she wanted the EAW Championship for herself.

(The camera once more transitions over to Myles, who like Minerva, is visibly upset after watching the footage.)

Myles: At Road to Redemption I wasn’t as involved in what happened with Minerva and Drake. I was literally watching from the outside, which meant that I was forced to watch Drake put his hands on Minerva after she helped him throughout the entire match. She literally saved Drake from death, and in return she was betrayed. I saw all of it, so as soon as I got the chance I took away what really caused all of this. The EAW Championship. I didn’t give a shit about the title when I first walked out of the Chamber, but you don’t get away with what Drake did that night. For so long I really believed that he was genuine about his goal to change the company. I was completely on board with it because I loved the idea of an EAW that was actually focused on competition, but that ship has sailed. Maybe New Eden could’ve succeeded had Drake not screwed it all up. At this point, I don’t care anymore.

[SCREENBAR – Pain for Pride 15.]

(Following Road to Redemption Drake King and Myles would prepare to face off for the EAW Championship as Minerva looked to find the Minerva from before New Eden and continue her National Elite Championship reign, but during this time things would become even more personal between the former members of New Eden. Minerva promised to get her revenge on Drake when the time came, and after Drake King continued to blame Minerva for his actions at Road to Redemption, he’d release the same images that were leaked years ago by Jesse Barlow. This would only lead to the match between Drake and Myles becoming that much more brutal as Myles looked to personally make Drake pay for all he’s done to New Eden. With Minerva getting some payback Myles would successfully defeat Drake, with Minerva attacking Drake afterwards. Unfortunately for Myles and Minerva, things would not end for them there. Drake would file a restraining order against Minerva thanks to the King of Elite attack, and once that didn’t work another idea was used to try to get rid of her. That idea would be with the Gold Rush tournament, a tournament that’d lead the winner to a match against Myles for the EAW World Championship. Minerva entered the tournament after a conversation with both her dead mother and with Myles, realizing that she needs to go after what she wants and win the EAW World Championship, and Drake King also entered, claiming to do so just to stop Minerva from winning. In the end these two would make it to the finals, and the tournament would end without a winner thanks to Drake King causing a double countout. Not allowing the EAW Championship to have no Pain for Pride match, Captain Charisma put both Minerva and Drake in the Pain for Pride headlining match. After retaining the EAW Championship against Brian Daniels, Myles would also be in the match, solidifying a triple threat between the former partners. Myles and Minerva have both promised to leave Pain for Pride as World Champion, making it clear that they’ll be okay with facing each other despite Drake’s attempts to tear them apart, but one thing they have in common is their hatred and their motivation to finally rid EAW of Drake, who in recent weeks has only taken things even further, attacking Minerva’s father. The events of Voltage just one week ago is shown, where Myles attacks Drake, leading to a brawl that ends with Myles accidentally hitting Minerva with a knee after Drake avoided it. The video recaps all of this, before showing the match graphic for the Pain for Pride EAW World Championship match between Myles, Minerva and Drake King.)

(The camera fades back to Minerva, who just stares at the camera with a focused look on her face.)

Minerva: At Pain for Pride I’m going to do what I should have done so long ago. Drake King should not be in EAW. He shouldn’t be alive at all after all that he’s done, and the longer he is allowed to remain in this company, the more damage he is able to inflict. I’ve allowed Drake to get away with so much just by agreeing to join that stupid fucking group, and I’m ending this at Pain for Pride. I love Myles, and he knows that I’ll be willing to do whatever it takes to become World Champion. I always have been, but these past few months I have been at my limit. I have put up with so much bullshit, and I am not ending this season without that Championship on my shoulder. I am going to become the EAW World Champion at Pain for Pride, and when this season ends Drake King will finally get what he deserves.

(The camera fades to Drake King, who also looks at the camera.)

Drake King: At Pain for Pride I’m going to do what Myles already should have. Had Myles actually lived up to what was originally his own goal, Minerva wouldn’t even be around anymore. She wouldn’t be able to go behind my back, and I wouldn’t have been forced to do any of the things that I have done in the past six months. Myles needs to wake up already, because whether he likes it or not, Pain for Pride is the last time he and everyone else in attendance gets to see Minerva. Minerva is a traitor, there’s no other way to put it. Someone like her doesn’t belong in EAW and since Myles has made his choice he’ll just have to go down the exact same path. I’m going to help this company, even if it means that I’m the only member of New Eden leaving Pain for Pride.

(Finally the camera fades to Myles, and this time it’s Myles that has to take a few seconds to begin speaking.)

Myles: At Pain for Pride, I am going to do what I should have back at King of Elite. That was the perfect opportunity to finally rid the world of Drake King, but because I was content with what we had already done, this was allowed to continue for four more months. At Pain for Pride I plan to retain my EAW World Championship, and Minerva knows that I plan to bring my best to Pain for Pride. She’ll do whatever it takes to become World Champion, and when the time comes I can guarantee that I will be at my best, and I will be ready to leave Pain for Pride the same way that I walked in. Only difference is, when it’s all said and done, and Pain for Pride is finally over with, none of us will ever have to think about Drake King again. No matter what it takes, I am going to make sure that at Pain for Pride, the same place where New Eden stood tall just a year before, this ends once and for all.

(Myles finishes speaking as he stares directly at the camera with a determined look in his eyes, and after that, the camera finally begins to fade to black for the final time before the biggest show of the year.)

(EAW logo buzzes.)
