(EAW Intro Plays)
(A special montage of various Voltage Elitists plays featuring the song “Win” by Jay Rock, and we open up to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York with MASSIVE gold and white pyro firing off from the stage, the titantron, the turnbuckles, and an incredible spectacle of lights prompting the capacity crowd to give every ounce of energy behind their applause.)

Kawajai: We are here tonight in a capacity crowd in the mecca! Brooklyn New York! In what is for sure to be an amazing show tonight! Voltage presents.. Crossfire! While it’s going to be hard to top last weeks fireworks with Manifest Destiny, tonight should prove to be a great show in it’s own right as we have a star studded lineup of matches headlined by none other than Brooklyn’s own Chris Elite taking on Rex McAllister for the World Heavyweight Championship!
Nick Angel: It was at this very place where Chris first captured the World Heavyweight Championship against Jamie O’Hara, he did everything in his power to capture the championship and has been a fighting champion along the way, proving himself to be a worthy face of Voltage. That’s not all though, the Prince of Phenomenal has the odds stacked against him as he takes on Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr in a triple threat for the National Elite Championship! Noah Reigner puts his Cash in the Vault briefcase on the line against Lars Grier! Devan Dubian looks to settle a score with Lethal Consequences! All that and then some, so let’s get it started!

(A recap plays of Albert Hitchman being approached by Hera with a proposition before turning her down, Hera showing up ringside at Scott Diamond’s match the following week, and then Hera introducing Kronos who would lay waste to Scott in the middle of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
(“Walk With Me” by Jeffrey Sciullo hits as Kronos makes his way out to the ring alongside Hera)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… being accompanied to the ring by Hera, weighing in at 294 pounds, from Parts Unknown…. KRRROOONNNOOSSSSSSS
Kawajai: What an imposing figure. This man laid waste to Scott Diamond just last week! If I’m Albert Hitchman I’m trying to go back in time and take Hera up on her offer because seeing what he did to Scott of all people, I’m sure this is a man who means business!
(“Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep hits to a loud mixed reaction as Scott Diamond makes his way out to the ring sporting a beanie that says “Perfect Storm”.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… weighing in at 280 Pounds.. from Long Island, New York…. SCOTTTTT DIAAMMMOONNDDDD!!!!!!
Kawajai: Scott despite last weeks epic failure, looks to be focused and determined. He’s flying solo tonight without Hitchman on his side. The former Answers World Champion looks ready to go.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: And Scott Diamond… slow out of his corner, a look of… I don’t wanna say it… but FEAR… on the face of Scott Diamond as he stares down the colossal Kronos. AND KRONOS… KRONOS GRABS SCOTT BY THE THROAT AND TOSSES HIM HALF WAY ACROSS THE RING!! SCOTT SCRAMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET AND INTO THE CORNER… KRONOS ISN’T BACKING DOWN, MARCHING TOWARDS SCOTT WHO HAS NOWHERE TO GO!! AGAIN KRONOS WRAPS HIS MAMMOTH SIZED HANDS AROUND THE THROAT OF SCOTT DIAMOND, BRINGING HIM DOWN TO A KNEE… AND NOW WITH A LOUD, PRIMAL SCREAM TOSSES HIM AGAIN ACROSS THE RING, IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!!
Angel: KRONOS IS MANHANDLING SCOTT DIAMOND HERE!! SCOTT IS AGAIN BACK TO HIS FEET, KRONOS IS COMING FOR HIM AGAIN BUT THIS TIME SCOTT THROWS CAUTION TO THE WIND AND RUSHES TOWARDS KRONOS, GETTING HIS KNEE UP AND SENDING IT INTO THE MID-SECTION!! THE KNEE LANDS BUT IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO HAVE DONE MUCH DAMAGE!! KRONOS REACHES OUT TO GRAB SCOTT FOR A THIRD TIME BUT HE’S MET WITH A SECOND KNEE… AND NOW A THIRD!! THREE POWERFUL KNEE THRUSTS INTO THE MID-SECTION OF KRONOS HERE, TRYING TO BRING THE BEAST DOWN!!
Kawajai: DIAMOND TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK… HE RUNS FORWARD WITH A FOURTH KNEE… BUT HE’S CAUGHT!! KRONOS CAUGHT HIM… AND A T-BONE SUPLEX!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYONE DO THAT TO SCOTT DIAMOND!! I’VE NEVER SEEN HIM BE SO EASILY THROWN LIKE THAT!! KRONOS IS DECIMATING THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION HERE!! Diamond pulls himself up to his feet… BUT KRONOS IS RIGHT THERE TO MEET HIM WITH A POWERFUL CLOTHESLINE, TAKING HIM DOWN AGAIN!! Scott is again to his feet but you can tell it’s getting slower and slower every time! BECAUSE KRONOS IS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE… AS HE THROWS SCOTT OVER HIS SHOULDERS!! RUNNING WITH HIM AND THROWING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE LIKE A DART!! SCOTT CRUMPLES INTO THE CORNER!!
Angel: Scott using the turnbuckle to pull himself to his feet… AND HERE COMES KRONOS!!… BUT SCOTT IS ABLE TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY… SCOTT DIAMOND MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND AS KRONOS WAS LEAPING INTO THE AIR… KRONOS HITS THE TURNBUCKLE AND NOW FROM BEHIND SCOTT WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF KRONOS… LIFTING HIM UP… AND CONNECTING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! THIS IS THE FIRST TIME ALL MATCH THAT KRONOS HAS BEEN OFF HIS FEET AND SCOTT DIAMOND ISN’T LETTING UP!! HE RELEASES THE WAIST OF KRONOS BUT FOLLOWS IT UP WITH BLOWS!! BLOWS FROM THE UNPADDED ELBOWS OF SCOTT DIAMOND INTO THE LOWER SPINE OF KRONOS!!
Kawajai: DIAMOND ATTACKING THE BACK OF KRONOS, THIS COULD LIMIT KRONOS’ POWER SIGNIFICANTLY!! A BRILLIANT STRATEGY!! AND NOW DIAMOND… THROWING KRONOS’ ARM ACROSS HIS SHOULDER BLADES… LIFTING HIM UP… LOOKING FOR THE VORTEX!! BUT NO!! KRONOS SLIDES OFF THE BACK OF DIAMOND… AND APPLIES A FULL NELSON!! FULL NELSON APPLIED TO SCOTT DIAMOND!! FULL NELSON APPLIED AND SCOTT DIAMOND IS IN A FRENZY, FULL BLOWN PANIC MODE!! HE WANTS TO GET TO THE ROPES OF COURSE, BUT HE CAN’T!! DIAMOND IS IN SERIOUS DANGER OF EITHER SUBMITTING OR PASSING OUT… OH BUT LOOK OUT!!
Angel: KRONOS THROWS DIAMOND A GOOD EIGHT FEET INTO THE AIR AND THEN SLAMS HIM BACK DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS!! HE WASN’T LOOKING FOR A SUBMISSION THERE, HE WANTS TO CONTINUE TO INFLICT PUNISHMENT ON SCOTT DIAMOND!! HE’S HERE TO MAKE A STATEMENT AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE’S DOING!! Diamond rolls over onto his side… he digs his hands into the canvas… trying to pull himself up… BUT KRONOS. IS. THERE! IN CONTROL, LIFTING SCOTT DIAMOND UP AND PUSHING HIM WITH EASE INTO THE CORNER!!… AND NOW KRONOS RUSHES FORWARD!!
Kawajai: REAPER’S TRIDENT… OH MY GOD!! THE RING POST… IT… IT BROKE!! THE IMPACT FROM THAT REAPER’S TRIDENT, IT SNAPPED THE RING POST FROM IT’S BASE!! KRONOS AND DIAMOND GO FLYING ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!
*A replay is shown*
Angel: We knew we were dealing with two behemoths but I never thought I’d see anything like that! THESE TWO MEN JUST SNAPPED THAT RING POST!! Both men are down, beginning to stir… and I’ll tell you what Kawajai, I don’t know who got the worst of that! Diamond took the impact but it looked like on that replay that Kronos landed head first on the outside! Both men crawling over to the apron and using it to pull themselves to a vertical base… both men trying to get back into the ring to beat the referee’s ten count! We haven’t been paying much attention to it… BUT WE ARE ON EIGHT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!….
Kawajai: But the count will stop at that as both men are able to roll into the ring! Diamond is the first to his feet… AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS MATCH, I SEE FIRE IN SCOTT DIAMOND’S EYES!! KRONOS IS STILL DOWN… AND LOOK AT DIAMOND!! DIAMOND REMOVING HIS GLOVES, THROWING THEM DOWN TO THE CANVAS… HE THROWS HIMSELF ON TOP OF KRONOS AND BEGINS PUMMELING INTO HIM… THE STRIKES, THE RIGHTS, THE LEFTS, THAT SCOTT DIAMOND IS KNOWN FOR, THAT HE’S MADE A CAREER OUT OF UTILIZING!! HE’S PUTTING THEM TO FULL USE HERE, BEATING DOWN ON KRONOS HERE!! KRONOS HAS HIS HANDS UP, TRYING TO BLOCK THEM… BUT THEY’RE STILL FINDING THEIR MARK, AND IT APPEARS AS IFF DIAMOND HAS BEEN ABLE TO BUST KRONOS OPEN!!
Angel: KRONOS HAS BEEN BUSTED OPEN AND SCOTT CONTINUES WITH THE SHOTS, A RELENTLESS, VICIOUS GROUND AND POUND HERE!! I’VE LOST COUNT AT THE NUMBER OF SHOTS DELIVERED DIRECTLY INTO THE SKULL OF KRONOS!! AND KRONOS… LOOK AT KRONOS’ ARMS!! THEY’VE GONE LIMP!! THEY’VE GONE LIMP AND FALLEN!! HE’S OUT!! KRONOS IS OUT AND THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL, SCOTT DIAMOND IS VICTORIOUS!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Shook Ones” hits as Scott Diamond has his hands raised in victory)
Kawajai: SCOTT DID IT! HE DEFEATED KRONOS AND SPOILS HIS DEBUT! I WON’T LIE TO YOU NICK, I CERTAINLY THOUGHT THIS WAS SOMETHING SCOTT COULD NOT OVERCOME BUT I WAS PROVEN WRONG! MAYBE THERE IS A LITTLE SOMETHING LEFT IN THE TANK AFTER ALL!
Angel: You and me both Kawa! Congrats to Scott on a hard fought and well earned victory!
(Camera fades backstage to Chris Elite walking down a hall to a thunderous ovation by the crowd. He then stops in his tracks as he witnesses a familiar face approaching him and a smile creeps onto his face.)
Chris: Well if it isn’t “Brooklyn’s Hero”!
(Stephanie Matsuda is shown in the frame with her Unified Women’s World Championship as her appearance solicits another thunderous ovation from the hometown Brooklyn crowd.)
Cloud: Wassup Chris! You know I wouldn’t miss this show for the world.
Chris: I feel you on that one, but yo congrats on that big win last night, you did Brooklyn very proud.
Cloud: Of course, and I know you gonna do the same thing tonight, no pressure or anything though! (Cloud laughs)
Chris: I ain’t worried about no Rex, you definitely inspired me last night to make sure I do whatever it takes to walk out of Brooklyn with the championship still intact. I won the title here and I damn sure ain’t losing the title here.
Cloud: That’s the spirit, it’s just crazy to think.. half of the current world champions in EAW are from Brooklyn. Now here we are in Brooklyn putting on for our city and making everybody proud. We’ve come a long way from where we were a year from now. You’re the coverboy of video games, I’m putting Empire on my back. It’s like what could we possibly do next to top it?
Chris: You right, I just take it day by day. But I did peep your interview back at Pain for Pride about something that sounded a lil intriguing.
Cloud: Is that right?
Chris: Brooklyn’s Finest? :eyes:
Cloud: Ha so you have been paying attention after all. You never know, the offers always on the table.
Chris: I’ll consider that, but for now, lemme focus on the task at hand. Making this a second night in a row that Brooklyn reign’s supreme.
Cloud: Good luck.
(Cloud extends her hand out as Chris shakes it and they go their separate ways.)

(A recap plays showing Xander Payne winning his New Breed Championship at Pain for Pride, successfully defending it at Midsummer Massacre, VIP being rewarded with the number one contendership, their confrontation at Midsummer Massacre, and their back and forth throughout the weeks.)
(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/478743444391460876/Crossfire_Xander-vs-VIP.png flashes across the screen)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: And it is for the EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!
( ‘God’s Plan’ by Drake start playing as Vincent I. Pride comes out of the ring wearing a “Coldblood” merch t-shirt and a jacket with “God’s Plan” written on the back. )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, the challenger, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 280 pounds, he is “The 6ix God”, VVVVV IIIII PPPPP!
Kawajai: An intense feud has been going on between Xander Payne and VIP over the past few weeks. Now it’s time for both men to back up what they said against each other.
Angel: It’s surely going to be an interesting match, but with the New Breed Championship involved, this is going to be intense.
( ‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill blasts through the speaker as Xander walks onto the stage, scanning the crowd in attendance. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT……. From Brampton, Ontario weighing in at 255 pounds! HE IS THE NEWWWW BREED CHAMPION…. XAAAAANDERRRRR PAAAAAYYYYYNEEE!!
Kawajai: And here comes the champion, who since Pain for Pride has successfully defended his championship in any brand at any time, he surely knows how to be a champion.
Angel: I agree, Xander surely knows what it takes having all the new breed competitors after you. However VIP claims not to be like the rest who Xander had taken on.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Kawajai: Well VIP has the chance to prove it as the match is officially underway. Both men trying to lock submission maneuvers on each other as it’s Xander Payne applying a headlock on VIP. He hold is tight as VIP tries to escape, but Xander won’t let him go. Xander applying a lot of pressure on VIP’s head, but VIP manages to turn around and break the submission. Xander now hitting VIP with some closed fists, but VIP does the same as both men now explode on punches unleashing all the hate accumulated between them. The referee trying to separate things off but they don’t care! They’re just going hard against each other, this thing became chaotic. They get out of the ring as VIP smashes Payne’s head on the barricade as he tries to launch him to the ring post, but Xander flips things around as HE SENDS VIP HEAD FIRST ON THE STEEL STEPS!
Angel: Xander making the first real move here as he grabs VIP again smashing him on the ring post before getting thing back in the ring. The referee gains control again on this match as VIP is now on his feet with Xander charging to him… boot to the mid section AND VIP CONNECTING WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX ON XANDER PAYNE. VIP is back on this match shoulder block on Xander sending him crashing on the turnbuckle AS IT’S FOLLOWED BY A DIVING BULLDOG! VIP HAS A CHANCE EARLY IN THIS MATCH AS HE SETS XANDER IN POSITION FOR THE 0 TO 100… NO, XANDER PAYNE WITH A ROLL-UP!
Ref: ONE! TW-
Kawajai: And the kickout by VIP. Xander won’t let himself go out so quickly as he reversed the deadlift german suplex into a roll-up of his own. You can never trust Xander, you never know what’s on his arsenal. Meanwhile Xander has the control now smashing VIP’s face with some vicious forearms as he charges back a little bit and connects with a clothesline into the corner sending VIP crashing down the floor. Xander now is climbing the top turnbuckle, looking for the 450 splash! OUCH! VIP GOT OUT OF THE WAY AND XANDER LANDED HARD ON THE FLOOR AS HE IS HOLDING HIS FRONT BODY IN PAIN! VIP realises his opportunity AND HE APPLIES THE SLEEPER HOLD ON PAYNE! PAYNE TRYING TO ESCAPE, HE CAN’T BREATHE PROPERLY! XANDER’S FACE IS FADING OUT BUT VIP WON’T BREAK THE HOLD! ELBOW TO THE RIBS OF VIP. ANOTHER ONE AND ANOTHER ONE! VIP IS FORCED TO BREAK THE COUNT AS XANDER HOLD HIS THROAT BREATHING HEAVILY. HE SLOWLY GETS UP, BUT VIP WITH A SPINEBUSTER! THE COVER!

VIP has Xander in the corner as he smashes some big fists across Xander’s skull. VIP with a lariat to the cornered Xander and HE LIFTS HIM UP IN THE GORILLA PRESS POSITION! TAKE CARE! NO, XANDER LANDED ON HIS FEET AND THERE IS THE SUPERKICK BY XANDER! DID YOU HEAR THE IMPACT? VIP’S JAW ALMOST FLEW AWAY! XANDER NOW HAS AN OPPORTUNITY AS HE CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE! SWANTON BOMB! IT CONNECTS! WAIT WHAT?! WHY IS XANDER HOLDING HIS BACK IN PAIN?
Kawajai: VIP got his knees up! Xander is failing to capitalise with the diving maneuvers, giving VIP a huge advantage! VIP grabs the floored Xander AND CONNECTS WITH A FALLAWAY SLAM! HOWEVER HE IS NOT DONE AS HE GOES AGAIN TO XANDER, AND THERE’S ANOTHER FALLAWAY SLAM! Xander is in huge trouble right now. VIP gets Xander up, and oh, another submission move! The abdominal stretch is locked in! Xander has nowhere to go! Xander is locked in the middle of the ring! He desperately tries to do something but he can’t! Xander tries to power out the submission, VIP trying to hold it! Xander got his arm out! Xander almost escaping the abdominal stretch AND HE REVERSES IT INTO A FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! THE FIGURE FOUR IS LOCKED IN! IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! VIP DESPERATELY TRYING TO MAKE IT TO THE BOTTOM ROPE AS XANDER APPLIES MORE PRESSURE TO THE LEG OF VIP! THIS COULD BE IT! VIP CRAWLS THROUGH THE PAIN, HE IS ALMOST TO THE ROPE! XANDER AGAIN ADDING MORE PRESSURE… VIP HAS GOT THE ROPE! BUT XANDER WON’T BREAK THE SUBMISSION! THE REFEREE YELLING AT HIM TO STOP!
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
Angel: Xander broke the submission finally as VIP is still holding his leg. The tormentous pressure applied to his leg must’ve hurt for sure. Xander however WITH A FISHERMAN SUPLEX ON VIP DRIVING HIM RIGHT TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! XANDER APPROACHES VIP AND CONNECTS WITH A STEP UP ENZIGURI! XANDER GRABS VIP AND CONNECTS WITH A SNAP DDT! XANDER TAUNTING VIP AS HE IS ON THE CORNER LAYING DOWN THERE! XANDER APPROACHES AND A FACE WASH VIA BOOT FROM XANDER! XANDER NOW STOMPING THE HELL OUT OF VIP! PAYNE GOING TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! IS HE GOING FOR IT? CANNONBALL! NOPE! HE MISSED! HOW DOES VIP KEEP AVOIDING THE CATASTROPHE? BOTH MEN ARE LYING DOWN, BUT SLOWLY VIP ROLLS OUT OF THE RING. XANDER USING THE ROPES TO GET UP, VIP USING THE BARRICADE. XANDER FLIES OUT OF THE RING WITH A SUICIDE DIVE TAKING VIP OUT! XANDER IS PUMPED UP! HE HAS THE CHANCE TO CAPITALISE!
Kawajai: He gets VIP back on the ring. Xander going for the DISCUS PALM STRIKE! VIP CONNECTS WITH A DISCUS PUNCH. XANDER IS STILL ON HIS FEET BUT HE GOES DOWN AFTER VIP CONNECTS WITH A CHOKESLAM! VIP GRABS XANDER BY HIS TROUSERS GETTING HIM UP… TAKE CARE! IT FINALLY CONNECTED! THE DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX IS NOW A BRIDGED DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX!
Ref: ONE!!! TWOOO!!! THREEEE-
Kawajai: Xander kicked out! VIP can’t believe it! He’s in shock! However he quickly realises that’s not the right thing to do as he gets right back up taking Xander with him… HE HAS XANDER IN THE CRUCIFIX POSITION! CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB! OH MY! XANDER ESCAPED IT! XANDER WITH A SUPERKICK! XANDER HAS HIM IN POSITION… THE PAYNEKILLER! THE PAYNEKILLER CONNECTS! IT’S OVER!
Ref: ONEEE!!! TWOOOO!!! THREEEEEE!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, AND STILL THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION… XANDEEEEER PAYNEEEEEE!
( ‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill bumps through the speaker again as Xander is on his knees, getting the New Breed Title handed by the referee. He kisses it and lifts it up proudly as he looks at VIP who is still on the floor. )
Angel: A huge, HUGE victory for Xander Payne here at Crossfire, proving yet again why he calls himself “The New Breed God”. He has proven it a lot of times now he deserves to be on top of the new breed category and I’m very excited to see what the future holds for him.
Kawajai: If these past two title defenses are any indication, then the future holds some great things for this young man who is on a tear to prove to the world that he is indeed the face of this New Breed division!
(Xander is shown celebrating as the camera transitions elsewhere.)
(Territorial Invasion 2018 ad is shown)
(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/478738442218373130/Crossfire_LC-vs-Dub.png flashes across the screen)
(A recap plays showing a split screen of both LC and Devan Dubian’s rise to prominence in their respective careers)
Stew-O: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES HAS DONE IT!!!!! HE’S CAPTURED THE UNDISPUTED HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP!! HE IS NOW THE HOLDER OF BOTH THE EAW AND HARDCORE TITLE!!
Mack: DUBIAN DID IT, DUBIAN DID IT, DUBIAN DID IT!!!! DEVAN DUBIAN HAS WON THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! WHAT A MATCH!!!!
(It then shows the respective lows of their careers such as Dubian and LC’s respective breaks)
Random analyst from 2009: Lethal Consequences was such a horrible EAW Champion that the company vacated it from him and handed it to another person! What a disgrace, there’s no coming back from that!
(LC is shown resurging his career two years later on Voltage as he’s celebrating an Answers World Championship win at Pain for Pride)
Stew: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! He did it! Lethal Consequences is once again the King of the Mountain!! LC has just achieved something many people thought he would NEVER be able to achieve again! He just proved here tonight at Pain For Pride that there is such thing as a second chance in this life and he cemented that by winning the Answers World Championship right here tonight in Dallas, Texas at PAIN! FOR! PRIDE!!
Random analyst from 2013: Devan Dubian had all the tools in the world to become a future star in this business. He could have been right up there with the likes of Kawajai and Dark Demon, now he’s just a what-if scenario.
(Devan Dubian is shown making a return to EAW in 2014 where he would immediately rise to the top of the ladder. Flashes of him headlining three back to back Pain for Prides show as well as his coronation moment at Pain for Pride 10)
Cherish: But that’s not all, Pierre! Mak and Banks now grab an arm each of Dub’s, and raise his hands in the air to another big ovation from this sold-out crowd here in Metlife Stadium! Banks and Mak almost coronating Dubian in a way! What a match, moments like these are exemplary to what Pain for Pride is all about!!!!
(Flashbacks then show of LC getting fired in 2012 and various return attempts in following years in losing efforts, as well as his constant struggles to regain his old position while highlighting various critics talking down on him. Finally ending with him returning in 2018 with Andy Dominguez on his side, reforming The Enterprise, and targeting Devan Dubian as highlights of their feud play including LC defeating Dub at Midsummer Massacre.)
( ‘Blackout’ by Company Flow begins to play as the crowd reacts with a wave of negativity. Lethal Consequences emerges on the stage immune to the back lash he is receiving. As the boos reign down, he sports a look of confidence as he slides into the ring.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is a singles match scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Oakland, California, weighing 230 pounds….. LEETTTHALLLLL CONSUEEQUEENCESSS!
Kawajai: The feud between Lethal Consequences and Devan Dubian comes to a head here tonight. As the fans release their overwhelming displeasure towards Lethal Consequences, he remains determined. At Midsummer Massacre, this man defeated Devan Dubian, but he didn’t do it alone.
Nick Angel: Can Dubian defy the odds of his enemies here tonight? The Enterprise has already toppled him once and they are determined to do so again.
(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters begins to play as the resentment of the crowd for Lethal Consequences transitions to pure joy as Devan Dubian appears on the stage. He eyes his enemy from the ramp as he stares him down. Dubian then enters the ring.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing 230 pounds… DEVAANNNN DUBBIANNNN!
Kawajai: Dubian knows how crucial this match is. After his loss at Midsummer Massacre, this may be his last chance to exact vengeance against the man who has seek to put an end to who Dubian is and the era he represents.
Nick Angel: These two men are ready to go!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: HERE WE GO! This match is under way. Before engaging, both men stare one another down as the tension only continues to escalate. Lethal Consequences smirks at Dubian in a huge display on confidence. Dubian responds with a look of aggression as he responds! He knees Lethal in the midsection! He immediately doubles over! Dubian now squares in on the back of the neck! He elbows Lethal’s neck with great precision! He now knees him in the face! Lethal Consequences is now pushed back by Dubian as he forces him into the corner! DEVAN UNLEASHES WITH A FLURRY OF PUNCHES! LETHAL CONSEQUENCE ATTEMPTS TO UTILIZE HIS ARMS TO SHIELD HIMSELF FROM THE ASSAULT!
Nick Angel: Lethal finds an opening and delivers a quick elbow jab to Dubian! He follows up that maneuver with a knife edge chop! He delivers another one as he’s forcing Dubian back! A third one is delivered for good measure as Dubian grabs at his chest in pain! He now pulls in Dubian for a standard suplex but Devan wants no part of it. HE ELBOWS LETHAL IN THE SIDE! DUBIAN NOW POPS UP AND EXECUTES A SWINGING NECK BREAKER… BUT LETHAL RESISTS THE ATTEMPT AND PUSHES DUBIAN AWAY! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES NOW CONNECTS WITH THE STEP UP ENZUIGIRI! The force of that kick was impressive! Dubian falls down!
Kawajai: Lethal grabs both arms of Dubian and pulls him up to a seated position! He now steps back and delivers a running big boot to Dubian! DUBIAN DUCKS IT AS HE POPS BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE! HE GRABS LETHAL FROM BEHIND AND DELIVERS A GERMAN SUPLEX FOR THE AGES! DUBIAN PUT ALL HIS MIGHT INTO THAT TO PUNISH LETHAL CONSEQUENCES AS MUCH AS HE CAN! Dubian now climbs to the top rope! He stands tall as he leaps! DIVING FOOT STOMP TO LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! DUBIAN NOW COVERS!
Nick Angel: Dubian stands up but he expected that. He’s perfectly aware of the resilience Lethal Consequences is capable of. He pulls Lethal up to his feet. Lethal is groggy and seemingly out of it. Dubian backs up a step and eyes him intensely and with disgust. BLEEDING EDGE… NO! LETHAL PUSHES DUBIAN AWAY! HE RUNS UP TO HIM AND DELIVERS A BACK STABBER! HE GRABS DEVAN AND PULLS HIM IN… ROWS PEDAL! THE SWINGING REVERSE STO CONNECTS! LETHAL NOW COVERS!
Kawajai: DUBIAN KICKS OUT WITH AUTHORITY! He’s indicating he’s far from finished. Lethal now pulls Dubian to a seated position again… AND THIS TIME SUCCESSFULLY DELIVERS THAT RUNNING BIG BOOT! Lethal now makes his way over o the corner where he immediately ascends to the top rope! Lethal is perched as Dubian stumbles to his feet. Lethal Consequences is showing patience as he is awaiting the perfect opportunity to strike.. DUBIAN TURNS TOWARDS HIM! FLYING CROSS BODY BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! NO! DUBIAN JUMPS TO THE SIDE AS LETHAL MISSES COMPLETELY! HE JUMPS TO HIS FEET AS HE STUMBLES IN PAIN… BLEEDING EDGE! HE DELIVERS THE BLEEDING EDGE SWIFTLY AND ACCURATELY ON LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! HE COVERS!
Nick Angel: KICK OUT! Lethal isn’t going down yet! Dubian wastes no time in getting back to it. As he pulls him up he grabs from behind but Lethal responds with a swift elbow! HE DELIVERS ONE MORE AND IT CONNECTS RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE AS DUBIAN STAGGERS! A DIRECT HIT BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! HE GRABS DUBIAN… AND EXECUTES A SIT OUT POWERBOMB AS DUBIAN CRASHES INTO THE MAT! Lethal takes a moment to recuperate as he may still be feeling the after effects of that bleeding edge from earlier.
Kawjai: Lethal returns to his feet as he begins to laugh and scoff at Dubian! He stomps him in the gut! He does it again… BUT DUBIAN GRABS HIS LEG! LETHAL TRIES TO PULL HIMSELF FREE BUT DUBIAN PULLS UNTIL LETHAL LOSES HIS FOOTING AND FALLS OVER! DUBIAN KEEPS A HOLD OF LETHAL AS HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND GRABS HIS OTHER LEG! Devan turns towards the corner and launches Lethal into the corner as he crashes into the turnbuckles! Lethal stumbles backwards… BLEEDING EDGE! MY GOD! ANOTHER BLEEDING EDGE FROM DEVAN DUBIAN! DUBIAN WITH SUCH A LOOK OF INTENSITY AS HE HIT THAT WITH ALL THE FORCE HE HAD! DUBIAN COVERS!
ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Nick Angel: THAT’S IT! IT’S OVER… WAIT! THE REFEREE STOPPED THE COUNT RIGHT AT BEFORE HE COUNTED THREE! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES GOT HIS FOOT ON THE ROPE! WHAT LAST SECOND THINKING AND BRILLIANT AWARENESS BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! Devan Dubian is in disbelief! He hit his second Bleeding Edge in just a matter of minutes but Lethal Consequences manages to find a way to keep going in this match. Dubian quickly gets up and pulls Lethal Consequences to the center of the ring so he can properly pin him… BUT LETHAL KICKS HIM AWAY WITH HIS LEGS! HE JUMPS UP AS DEVAN RESPONDS AND HITS A DROP KICK TO THE JAW OF DUBIAN! BOTH MEN GO DOWN AFTER LETHAL CONNECTS WITH THE DROP KICK!
Kawajai: Lethal Consequences has gained himself a few moments to recover after that brutal Bleeding Edge from Devan Dubian. Lethal crawls to the ropes as he uses them to bring himself to his feet. Dubian is stirring across the ring as he is holding his jaw from where that drop kick connected. Lethal quickly comes behind Dubian and hits a running clothesline to the back of the head. Dubian is knocked into the ropes as he grabs them to gain his balance. Lethal steps back and Dubian quickly spins around and charges for a clothesline but Lethal Consequences ducks under his arm and slides under the ropes to ringside. Devan spins around as Lethal grabs both his legs from underneath the bottom rope. LETHAL JERKS DEVAN AND HE FALLS DOWN! LETHAL PULLS HIM OUT OF THE RING BUT DUBIAN GRABS THE ROPES TO KEEP PART OF HIS BODY IN THE RING!
Nick Angel: Dubian fights back and kicks Lethal away as he falls down into the front of our announce table. Dubian regains himself as he is on the ring apron. He stands up and looks down at Lethal Consequences… WHO JUMPS UP AND GRABS DUBIAN BY THE LEGS AGAIN AND PULLS HIS FEET OUT FROM UNDER HIM YET AGAIN! DEVAN CRASHES BACK FIRST ONTO THE APRON! Lethal gets onto the apron of the ring. Dubian is getting to one knee as Lethal proceeds to grab him but Devan delivers a rapid series of blows to the ribs! Lethal backs up in pain… DEVAN DUBIAN JUMPS UP… BLEEDING EDGE!!! NO! LETHAL AVOIDS THAT THIRD BLEEDING EDGE BY PUSHING DUBIAN FORWARD! DUBIAN ALMOST FALLS OFF THE APRON AS HE’S TURNED AROUND BY LETHAL… ACID REIGN! THE DIAMOND CUTTER PLANTS DEVAN RIGHT ON THE APRON! HE ROLLS OFF TO RINGSIDE SEEMINGLY LIFELESS AFTER THAT VICIOUS IMPACT!
Kawajai: Lethal Consequences takes a moment to gather himself. Under normal circumstances he would go for a cover, but Dubian is outside of the ring! Meanwhile, the referee has reached a count of 5 as these two men have battle out here. Lethal rolls into the ring as the referee continues his count. Dubian is lifeless after that Acid Reign.
Referee: SIX! SEVEN!
Kawajai: Lethal is now watching from the ring as Dubian struggles to his knees.
Kawajai: The referee is nearing a count of ten… AND DUBIAN LUNGES INTO THE RING RIGHT AT THE COUNT OF NINE! He barely managed to do so. LETHAL CHARGES AT HIM BUT DUBIAN COUNTERS WITH A SWIFT SCOOP SLAM! Dubian stands over Lethal Consequences and is berating him!
Dubian: Without the Enterprise backing you up, you can’t beat me!
Nick Angel: Tensions have boiled over and Dubian is venting his frustrations at Lethal Consequences. He lifts up Lethal and hits a european uppercut! Lethal stumbles… AND FIRES BACK WITH A HEAD BUTT! MY GOD! HE MAY HAVE GIVEN BOTH HIMSELF AND DUBIAN A CONCUSSION WITH THAT… DUBIAN IS ROCKED… ACID REIGN! THE DIAMOND CUTTER CONNECTS AGAIN! THIS TIME DUBIAN IS IN THE RING AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES COVERS!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEE!
Kawajai: KICK OUT! DEVAN DUBIAN KICKS OUT! Lethal slams the mat in frustration! Lethal stands back up… AND LOOK! IT’S THE ENTERPRISE! THEY ARE COMING DOWN THE RAMP TO RINGSIDE! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES LOOKS OVER TO THEM! Andy Dominguez and Jackson Blayde have made their pleasure known but Lethal Consequences… what’s he doing? He’s telling them to back off!
Lethal Consequences: I don’t need your help. I’ll handle this myself.
Nick Angel: Andy and Jackson are surprised but they slowly comply as they turn back around and return to the back! Lethal turns his attention back towards Dubian who is up to his feet after struggling to do so. HE CHARGES AT THEM AS DUBIAN WHO IS LEANING AGAINST THE ROPES COUNTERS BY TOSSING HIM UP OVER HIS HEAD! LETHAL CRASHES ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Dubian now pursues him as he rolls out of the ring! He lifts up Lethal and throws him against the ring apron! He grabs him again and throws him against our announce table! He approaches him again but Lethal retaliates with a vicious knee ot the midsection! He grabs Dubian and slams his face down into our table here!
Kawajai: He grabs Dubian…FLASH BACK! THE SLEEPER SLAM BACKBREAKER CONNECTS! LETHAL NOW GRABS DUBIAN AND THROWS HIM OVER OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! WE NEED TO TAKE A STEP BACK, NICK!
Nick Angel: Lethal grabs Dubian and leads him away from our table and launches him into the ring bell area here at ringside! Lethal Consequences with complete disregard for everybody here at ringside!
Lethal Consequences: Who’s washed up now? Your era is over.
Kawajai: Lethal Consequences steps back and charges full force to where Dubian and hits a leaping clothesline as both men crashes into chairs and the barricade! Lethal now picks up Dubian on his shoulders… HE RUNS BACK TOWARDS OUR TABLE AND SLAMS DUBIAN DOWN AGAIN! HE NOW JERKS HIM OFF OUR TABLE AND LAUNCHES HIM INTO THE STEEL STEPS NEARBY! The referee is at a count of seven and Lethal Consequences rolls in and out of the ring to restart the count as his assault on Devan Dubian is far from over! He now picks up Dubian and drops him with a standard DDT right into the floor!
Nick Angel: Lethal now pulls the ring steps to him and Devan! He picks up Dubian to a knee but Dubian displays signs of life! EUROPEAN UPPER CUT! DUBIAN STAGGERS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES… DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES RESPONDS WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW! HE PULLS DUBIAN OVER TO THE STEEL STEPS! DUBIAN PUSHES LETHAL OFF OF HIM! HE PULLS HIM IN AND DELIVERS SEVERAL ELBOW STRIKES RIGHT TO HIS SPINE… DDT ON THE STEEL STEPS?! NO! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BURSTS FREE AS DEVAN LOSES HIS BALANCE… ACID REIGN! THE ACID REIGN CONNECTS ON THE STEEL STEPS!
Kawajai: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES AND DEVAN DUBIAN ARE DESTROYING ONE ANOTHER! Dubian is motionless on those steps and Lethal is barely managing to move himself! He’s exhausted! He grabs Dubian, slowly but surely he rolls him onto the apron! He crawls onto the apron himself and crawls over to Dubian and drapes an arm over his shoulder! THE COVER! THIS IS IT!
ONEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-
Kawajai: KICK OUT! DUBIAN KICKS OUT! Lethal Consequences is in complete disbelief! He doesn’t know how to proceed! Devan Dubian has lost to Lethal just recently at Midsummer Massacre and he’s refusing to allow that to happen again! Lethal Consequences pulls himself to his feet! He grabs Dubian and pulls him up! LETHAL GETS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS! THE GTJ! A LAST RESORT FINISHER BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BUT DUBIAN RESPONDS WITH SEVERAL ELBOW STRIKES TO THE JAW! HE LANDS BEHIND LETHAL… OLYMPIC SLAM! THE OLYMPIC SLAM BY DEVAN DUBIAN! THE MOVE IN HONOR OF STARR STAN WHO MENTORED HIM CONNECTS! DUBIAN COVERS!
ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-
Nick Angel: KICK OUT! A KICK OUT BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! Dubian falls over onto his back in disbelief! He’s absolutely exhausted! Both these men have taken so much punishment but refuse to give up! Devan stands up and his expression shifts to one of determination! He steps back across the ring from Lethal Consequences… HE’S DOING IT! IF HE IS USING THAT MOVE, HE MUST BE DESPERATE! LETHAL BEGINS TO STIR AND DUBIAN TAKES OFF! PROPEL TO PARADISE! PUNT KICK…. LETHAL CONSEQUENCES JUMPS UP AND DUBIAN’S KICK MISSES!
Kawajai: LETHAL SPINS DUBIAN AROUND… ACID REIGN! HE BRINGS DUBIAN DOWN… NO! DEVAN PUSHES HIM AWAY AND PULLS HIM BACK IN… BLEEDING EDGE! THE MISSED ACID REIGN LEADS TO A SUCCESSFUL BLEEDING EDGE BY DEVAN DUBIAN AND HE FALLS ON TOP OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES FOR THE COVER!
ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Nick Angel: IT’S OVER! IT’S FINALLY OVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters begins to play as the crowd erupts. Devan Dubian stands up with a look of exhaustion and pain as he stands over Lethal Consequences. He looks down at his opponent and then at the crowd as he celebrates his victory.)
Stephie Love: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH….DEEEVANNNNN DUBBBIANNNNNNN!
Nick Angel: What a back and forth match up! These two men despise each other and they proved that here tonight!
Kawajai: They withstood everything the other threw at them. That last second missed Punt Kick almost lead to Lethal Consequences gaining the victory, but that last second Bleeding Edge has given Dubian the win. He’s finally prevailed over Lethal Consequences and the enterprise.

(Noah Reigner is shown capturing the Cash in the Vault briefcase at Pain for Pride. It then transitions to the 2018 EAW Draft where he is approached by Lars Grier who attempts to offer him advice but gets turned down. Highlights of the following Voltage play with Lars Grier giving Noah a “history lesson” on past failed Cash in the Vault winners with Noah once again shooting down his attempts.

( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALLLLLLL… AND IS AN EXTREME RULES MATCH! FOR THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE!!!!
( “4th Dimension” by Kids See Ghosts ft. Louis Prima blasts through the speakers as Lars Grier walks out to a serenation of boos. He walks down the ramp, looking more determined than ever )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! From Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing in at 265 pounds…. HE IS THE CROOOKEED MAAAAN…….. LARRRRRRSSSSS GRIEEEEEEERRRR!!!!
Kawajai: Tonight, Grier has an opportunity to steal the Mr. Cash In The Vault entitlement that belongs to Noah Reigner. If he wins this match and takes the Cash In The Vault briefcase, not only would that back up and prove his word, it would do wonders for the trajectory of his career. Grier would love to have an opportunity at the world championship at any time at any event.
( “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem blares through the speaker as Noah Reigner walks onto the stage with the Cash In The Vault briefcase in his hand. As he scans the Brooklyn crowd in the Barclays Center, he slowly rises his briefcase in the air, showing off his prized possession )
Bella Braxton: His opponent…. From Seattle, Washington… WEIGHING IN AT 184 POUNDS….. HE IS THE 2018 CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER……. NOOOAHHHHH REIGNNER!!!!!
Kawajai: That might be the last time where Noah holds his briefcase in the air as it is on the line tonight against Lars Grier. Grier is a hungry and desperate elitist who aspires for a championship opportunity, but I doubt that Reigner would let the opportunity that he has known which is the Cash In The Vault briefcase, taken off his hands.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Kawajai: This extreme rules match is underway as both men stare each other down. You can tell from the look in their eyes, both men are assessing the situation, wondering who will strike first. They raise their arms, looking to be engaging in a collar-and-elbow tie up! But both men quickly roll out of the ring and peak under the apron sheets to look for a weapon!
Nick Angel: As they stop digging their heads into the basement of the apron, they both bring out kendo sticks, sliding into the ring and squaring off. Doesn’t this give you Star War vibes? Imagine the kendo sticks are lightsabers! Reigner swings the kendo stick first but Grier blocks it with his own kendo stick! They keep swinging at each other, but the other keeps blocking it! Reigner goes for another kendo stick but GRIER SWINGS AT THE KENDO STICK KNOCKING IT OUT OF REIGNER’S HANDS!!!!
Kawajai: Reigner is in a situation that he shouldn’t be in right now and there is where Grier has the advantage!!! Grier swings the kendo stick towards but Reigner dodges it, sweeping from below and taking him down with a double leg takedown! The fight has begun as Reigner is squaring off on Grier with the renowned ground and pound!!! Grier pushes him away, but Reigner jumps back onto him, refusing to give up his efforts!
Nick Angel: Grier uses the ropes to get out of the ring as he takes a breather at ringside! REIGNER RUNS THE ROPES, SOARING IN BETWEEN THE ROPES AND SOARING ONTO GRIER WITH A SUICIDE DIVE. BUT GRIER CATCHES HIM IN MIDAIR!!!!!!! HE LIFTS HIM UP!! CHOKESLAM ONTO THE APRON!!!!!
Kawajai: Grier immediately runs over to him, pulling him up and throwing him over the barricade! He then leans down, peeking under the apron, bringing out a crowbar as a sinister expression is planted on his face! He then jumps over the barricade, joining the recuperating Reigner. BUT REIGNER OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A STEEL CHAIR ONTO THE HEAD OF GRIER!!!!!
Nick Angel: Reigner than smashes the steel chair onto the back of Grier over and over again! He picks him up, throwing him over the barricade as he jumps onto the barricade, perched ontop as Grier turns around!!!!! JUMPING CLOTHESLINE OFF THE BARRICADE!!! NO!!!! GRIER CATCHES HIM IN MID AIR ONCE AGAIN!!! CHOKESLAM ONTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE?!?!?! NO!!! REIGNER JUMPS OUT OF IT, JUMPING UP AND CONNECTING WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!!!!
Kawajai: Grier is staggered on one knee as he is clutching his jaw after the knee strike! NOAH CHARGES INTO Grier JUMPING ONTO HIM!! BUT Grier CATCHES HIM. HE HAS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AND HE THROWS HIM BACKWARDS INTO THE APRON!!!! FALLAWAY SLAM INTO THE APRON! He picks him up, shoving him into the ring and going up the turnbuckles.
Nick Angel: He is perched on the top, he never does this!! Grier falls on the turnbuckle as Reigner just threw himself into the ropes, making Grier go groin first on the turnbuckle! He begins to climb up the turnbuckles, joining Grier as he has both feet on the ropes. HURRICANRANA!!! NO!!!!! GRIER HOLDS ONTO HIM, TRANSITIONING HIM INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!!! STARFALL OFF THE TOP!!!!!! THE AVALANCHE FIREMAN’S CARRY POWERBOMB!!!!!! He does not insist of covering as he rolls out to ringside, looking under the apron sheets for another weapon of destruction! He keeps bringing out steel chairs, throwing them into the ring! There are a pile of ten steel chairs lying on the canvas near a laid out Reigner as Grier slides into the ring like a predator.
Kawajai: Grier eclipses and overshadows the damaged Reigner as he picks him up in a fireman’s carry position!!! HE AIMS FOR THE CHAIRS AS HE CHARGES INTO THEM!! BUT REIGNER GETS OUT OF THE HOLD, THROWING GRIER SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!! Grier slowly walks backward from the ringpost AS REIGNER GRABS HIM FROM THE BEHIND IN WRIST-LOCK HOLD!! HE TURNS HIM AROUND, LIFTING HIS KNEE!!!! BUT GRIER DUCKS IT, RUNNING THE ROPES AND BACK INTO REIGNER!!!
Nick Angel: REIGNER DODGES GRIER, GRABBING HIM FROM THE BEHIND AND HOOKING HIM UP IN A PUMPHANDLE POSITION!! 91KO!!! PUMPHANDLE HALF-NELSON DRIVER INTO THE PILE OF STEEL CHAIRS!!! COVER!!
Nick Angel: Grier kicks out!!! Reigner realizing that he must inflict more pain onto Grier to win this match as he peeks under the apron sheets, pulling a table out and setting it up at ringside! As he is done setting up, Reigner steps onto the apron and is MET WITH A ROCKET KICK!!!!! Reigner is dazed on the apron as Lars steps in between the ropes onto the apron, deadlifting him up and POWERBOMBING HIM INTO THE TABLE!!!!! SIT-OUT GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB INTO THE TABLE AT RINGSIDE!!!!!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT… HOLY SHIT…. HOLY SHIT…..
Kawajai: Grier will do anything to obtain that briefcase and you can truly see that after that devastating powerbomb into the table!!! Grier slides Reigner into the ring, CHARGING INTO HIM AND CONNECTING WITH A BIG BOOT ACROSS THE FACE OF REIGNER!!! REIGNER REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, JUMPING UP FOR THE V-TRIGGER!!!! BUT GRIER CIRCLES AROUND THE KNEE, ROLLING HIM UP AND LIFTING HIM UP!!!! SCHOOLBOY POWERBOMB!!!!!!!!! COVER!!!!
Nick Angel: Reigner gets his shoulder up!!! Grier grabs him by his head, pulling him up as he begins to european uppercut him! Over and over again!!! It brings Reigner onto one knee as Grier runs the ropes BUT REIGNER CONNECTS WITH A V-TRIGGER OUT OF NOWHERE!!!! KILL SHOT!!!!!!!! COVER!!!
Kawajai: KICKOUT!!!! GRIER GOT HIS SHOULDER UP AFTER THAT KILL SHOT OUT OF NOWHERE!?!?!? Reigner is in disbelief as he slams his hand into the canvas! Reigner crawls over to the corner, grabbing the turnbuckle as he starts to untie it, exposing the steel that lies behind the turnbuckle!!! Reigner exposes the turnbuckle as it is all legal here tonight! He grabs Reigner, THROWING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!! NO!!!! GRIER TURNS HIM AROUND AND THROWS HIM INSTEAD!!!
Nick Angel: BUT REIGNER JUMPS ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE, JUMPING BACKWARDS AND LANDING ON HIS FEET BEHIND REIGNER GRABBING HIS WRIST, TURNING HIM AROUND AND CONNECTS WITH THE WRIST-LOCK JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!!! WOLFE’S BLOOD!!!!!! COVER!!!
Nick Angel: NO!!!!!! GRIER KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN!!!! REIGNER IS IN DISBELIEF!!!! WE WERE SHOCKED WHEN HE KICKED OUT LAST TIME NOW WE’RE ASTONISHED THAT GRIER STILL GOT HIS SHOULDER UP AFTER THAT TERRIFIC MANEUVER!!
Kawajai: Grier is seated at the corner as Reigner is at the opposite corner! HE CHARGES INTO GRIER AT THE CORNER FOR A DOUBLE KNEE!! BUT GRIER JUMPS UP AND DAZES REIGNER WITH A JUMPING CLOSED FIST!!!!! REIGNER IS ON ONE KNEE AS GRIER CHARGES INTO HIM FOR THE SPEAR!!!!!! REIGNER WITH A SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!!! REIGNER PICKS HIM UP, BUT GRIER DUCKS, PICKING HIM UP AND PLANTS HIM WITH THE CROOKED SIXPENCE!!! COVER!!
Nick Angel: NO!!!!! THE FIREMAN’S CARRY INTO A POWERSLAM DOES NOT END THE MATCH YET!!!! Grier walks over to Reigner, grabbin- SMALL PACKAGE!! REIGNER WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE!
NIck Angel: Grier gets out of the small package as both men get up! Reigner circles around Grier, SLAMMING HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A RELEASE DRAGON SUPLEX!!! REIGNER QUICKLY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, PULLING OUT A TABLE FROM BELOW THE APRON AS HE SETS IT UP AT RINGSIDE!! He then peeks under the sheets once again, bringing out gasoline and a lighter, pouring the gasoline on the table and igniting it with the lighter! Reigner refocuses his attention onto Grier, stepping onto the apron.
Kawajai: GRIER CHARGES INTO REIGNER AT THE APRON!! OH MY GOD!!! HOLY SHIT!!!!! SPEAR OFF THE APRON INTO THE BURNING TABLE!!!!! BAH GAWD!!!! HE’S GOTTA BE DEAD!!!!!!
Nick Angel: The staff here are extinguishing the blazing Reigner as Reigner was sent back first into the on-fire table!!! Grier grabs Reigner, rolling him into the ring and going for the cover!!
Kawajai: WHAT IS EVELYN RIDLEY DOING OUT HERE!??! HE JUST PULLED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING, BREAKING THE PINFALL VICTORY!!! GRIER HAD THE BRIEFCASE LOCKED IN BUT RIDLEY SAVES THE DAY!!!! GOD BLESS RIDLEY!!
Nick Angel: Grier is in shock at what just happened!!! He crawls over the corner in disbelief as he looks at Evelyn, who is arguing with the referee!! He then takes his eyes back onto Reigner, using the ropes to pull him up as he signals for the end!!! HE CHARGES AT REIGNER AS THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO THE RING!!!! REIGNER MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND GRIER GOES HEAD FIRST INTO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE!!!!!!
Kawajai: REIGNER COMES FROM BEHIND…… THE HARD GOODBYE!!! Swinging Leghook Fireman’s Carry Slam CONNECTS!!!!! HE COLLAPSES ONTO GRIER FOR THE PIN!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem blasts through the speaker as Reigner exhaustedly gets off Grier, collapsing onto the canvas )
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…….. And STILL MR. CASH IN THE VAULT…….. NOAHHHHHHHHHH REIGNERRRR!!!!!
Nick Angel: With the help of Evelyn Ridley, Noah Reigner’s time with the Cash In The Vault briefcase gets to live another day!! The early exposure of the turnbuckle paid dividence in the outcome of the match as Grier went charging right into the exposed turnbuckle, rebound off it and being met with the fate in the form of the Hard Goodbye!
Kawajai: I don’t know how Reigner got his shoulder up after he went right through a burning table but I must say that is the definition of great resiliency put on display by Reigner himself.
Nick Angel: What are you talking about? Evelyn pulled the referee out of the ring to save Reigner’s briefcase, Evelyn is the reason why he still has the briefcase.
Kawajai: It doesn’t matter how you defend your prized possession, it only matters only if you actually maintain and retain in after a grueling extreme rules match and that’s what Reigner did, he is still Mr. Cash In The Vault.

(Highlights play of Prince of Phenomenal defeating Nobi to capture the National Elite Championship as well as his successful defense against Heart Break Boy at Pain for Pride. It then shows highlights of Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr on NEO, Showdown and the formation of MarrKade. They’re now shown on Voltage as Daryl Kinkade successfully qualifies for a National Elite title shot as well as Charlie Marr. Highlights of the MarrKade/POP feud play showing POP trying to drive a wedge between the two and their various back and forths, ending with POP holding the National Elite Championship held high.)
(The camera then fades to a shot of the inside of the arena, with Bella Braxton standing in the middle, a microphone in her hand.The crowd cheers, eagerly waiting for the first entrant. “What A Shame” by Too Close To Touch then plays as Daryl Kinkade walks out, wearing a special outfit keeping the theme of Crossfire. A glossy red, yellow, and blue outfit as he walks out, his hood up and covering his face before he removes it and spreads his arms wide to the adoration of the crowd. He gives them a smile before running down to the ring, performing a springboard somersault into it, connecting with a pose as he does so.)
Angel: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, KAWA?! One of my MOST anticipated match-ups of the night, one I can guarantee you will be a show-stealer is just around the corner, and the first entrant we see is none other than Norfolk’s Finest, Daryl Kinkade! Since NEO, he has been looking for footing to stand on, to be his own man and to make his mark within the landscape of EAW, and if he manages to make good on his promise? He may just cement himself as one of the brightest in EAW’s future by becoming the National Elite Champion!
Kawajai: He’s someone I’ve kept my eye on since his days in NEO, and now after leaving behind his past, his injury forcing him to walk away, he returned to Voltage and has been making waves ever since, showing himself to be more than just like the other newcomers who have come his way! Tonight, we’re going to see if his hard work and potential will propel him to even greater heights.
(“The Charming Man” by The Smiths then blasts through the speakers as Charlie Marr walks out from the guerilla position with a determined expression on his face. He wears a leather jacket bearing his logo on it, as from the ramp he stares down his tag team partner. The two lock eyes as he rolls into the ring, before they exchange words that the camera can’t pick up. They then step back into their respective corners, the two keeping an eye on each other at all times.)
Angel: Do you see that, Kawa? That right there, is a man who wants nothing more than to win. I’m not sure how these two are going to deal with the fact that they’re still partners outside of tonight, or even if they will remain that way once all of this is over! Charlie Marr is almost the complete opposite from his partner, but that may be the reason as to why they’re so effective when together. Each of them balance out each other and create a well-oiled machine.
Kawajai: But tonight that machine is going to be tested. We’re going to see how they’ll deal with this situation, especially since they have one of the biggest incentives to fight out there: The National Elite Championship. Both men started on NEO, they’ve even had battles before, but ever since they teamed up they’ve managed to keep themselves together and actually work, despite their differing attitudes and personalities. Whether that stays or breaks…..is the question that has yet to be answered.
(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray then comes from the speakers as the lights dim, turning slowly into a blue. Prince of Phenomenal walks out, wearing his signature jacket with the hoodie over his head, and wrestling tights with gun and fire designs all over it. He then pulls the hood off, the lights turn bright as he strikes his signature pose, a big grin on his face as he does so. Walking down to the ring, Marr and Kinkade stare him down as he simply steps onto the apron, before walking in and performing his pose once more, beaming with absolute confidence.)
Kawajai: I don’t know if I would be that confident about your odds, POP…..you can tell from the look on his face that he is walking down to that ring with a sheer sense of purpose, and without fear. Maybe he is underestimating his opponents, but could you blame him? He has been on a hot streak ever since he won that Championship, holding it for as long as he did and beating formidable opponents. So far, every threat that he has faced, he has managed to overcome.
Angel: But MarrKade may prove to be too much for him tonight, whether or not it goes the way that I think it will. Man oh man, I absolutely cannot WAIT for this match to begin!
(All competitors stand in the ring as the lights around the arena go dark, with a lone, white spotlight shining down on the three competitors and the ring.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a Triple Threat Match, scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: And it is for the EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAAAAMPPIIOOONSHIIPPP!!!!!
(She turns to Daryl Kinkade.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, IN THE CORNER TO MY RIGHT! From Norwich, England! Weighing in at 215 POOOUNDSSS!!!!!…….HE IS “EVERYONE’S FAVORITE UNDERDOG”…….DAAAAAAAAARYYYYYYLLLLLLLLL KIIIIIIIINNNNNKKKAAAAAADDEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: AND WE’RE OFF AS THE BELL RINGS AND IT’S TIME FOR THIS CONTEST TO GO UNDERWAY! Prince of Phenomenal, Daryl Kinkade, and Charlie Marr in the same ring, competing for that very title POP holds right now! Each man stands in their respective corner, waiting for a chance to strike at their opponents…….who will attack first? Kinkade and Marr eye each other, are they going to duke it out? Wait….they’re turning their attention to Prince of Phenomenal? OH! AND CHARLIE MARR NOW RUSHES IN WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE ABDOMEN OF POP! THEN DARYL FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DROPKICK TO THE CHEST! OH, WE SHOULD HAVE SEEN THAT COMING! OF COURSE THESE TWO WOULD TEAM UP TO DEFEAT THE COMMON ENEMY THEY SHARE IN THIS MATCH! SMART! POP is taken off guard by the surprise double assault from MarrKade, but he still wants to fight back! He fires off with a FOREARM SMASH TO CHARLIE! A stiff forearm shot, but he’s still standing! THEN A SHOT TO DARYL! THEN A SHOT TO CHARLIE! TO DARYL! TO CHARLIE! POP is fending them off with these forearms and right hands, but for how long can he last? OH! DARYL KINKADE WITH A SPINNING SOLE KICK TO THE GUT OF PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL KNOCKING THE WIND OUT OF HIS SAILS! The two tag team partners look at each other in the eye, before they grab POP and irish whip him into the opposite rope, as he comes back! DOUBLE LARIAT BY KINKADE AND MARR TAKING THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION DOWN!
Angel: He hits the mat hard as his head bounces off, sitting up in pain from it! Wow! I almost did not expect the two of them to go this route, but I suppose I should have considering right now this is the smartest course of action they could’ve taken! POP is in a sitting position, Daryl and Charlie look at each other and nod…….they run off the ropes from opposite directions…….AND THEY MEET IN THE MIDDLE! OH MY GOD! A DOUBLE PENALTY KICK COMBINATION, DARYL FROM THE FRONT AND CHARLIE CONNECTING WITH THE SPINE! WOW! THEY SANDWICHED THE CURRENT CHAMPION WITH THEIR LEGS AS HE LETS OUT IN PAIN! They lift him off the ground and back to a vertical base, grabbing his arms…..AND THEY GO FOR A DOUBLE SUPLEX! MORE TEAMWORK – PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL IS FIGHTING IT! AND HE MANAGES TO SLIP AND LAND BEHIND THEM! They look dumbfounded as they turn around – RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK BY POP THAT CONNECTS ONTO BOTH OF THEM, KNOCKING THEM DOWN! He then runs off and bounces off the ropes, coming back with a SOMERSAULT SENTON ONTO BOTH MEN! DAMN! Despite their best efforts to take him out of the match early on, he’s showing that he can take on the two of them! They’re going to have to find some other way if they want to take him out,
Kawajai: POP places his foot onto the chest of Daryl, BEFORE HE KICKS HIM OUT OF THE RING! Smart thinking by POP there, knowing that there’s a better chance of him walking out of this the winner if he can isolate one of his opponents and take him out that way! He grabs Marr by his hair, lifting his head off the ground……AND HE CONNECTS WITH A BRUTAL KNEE STRIKE TO HIS SKULL! OH MY GOD! I DIDN’T THINK HE HAD IT IN HIM TO DO THAT! THAT REVERBERATED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE ARENA……AND HE CONNECTS WITH A SECOND KNEE THAT’S JUST AS LOUD! CHRIST! POP isn’t playing any games tonight, he wants to come out of this match unscathed and still as your EAW National Elite Champion, he isn’t taking any chances with his opponents! Charlie is already looking dazed from those shots as POP runs off and rebounds off the ropes, returning WITH AN ENZIGURI TO A KNEELING CHARLIE MARR! BUT CHARLIE DUCKS IT, AND POP LANDS FLAT ON HIS FACE! Marr is fighting against the pain as he grabs POP’s feet, dragging him to the center of the ring, but POP turns and kicks Charlie in the chest, escaping his grasp! He rolls onto his feet in the center of the ring, AND GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!
Angel: BUT MARR IS QUICKER THAN THAT AS HE FIRES OFF WITH A SHOOT KICK THAT TAKES POP’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM! He was quicker that time…AND NOW CHARLIE LEAPS FROM THE STANDING POSITION! JUMPING ELBOW DROP TO THE STERNUM OF THE CHAMPION CONNECTS, AND CHARLIE IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE PIN! THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN – BUT WAIT! DARYL KINKADE ROLLS INTO THE RING AND BREAKS IT UP! Oh boy……I think we’re going to see some fighting between these two partners, because Charlie does not look happy at all that his own partner broke up the pin! Few minutes in and we’re already seeing just how far this championship will drive these men to victory! These two men are staring each other down and throwing insults against each other! DARYL SHOVES CHARLIE! OHHH BOY! AND IT’S CHARLIE WHO FIRES THE FIRST SHOT AS HE LAUNCHES A BIG RIGHT HOOK TO THE SIDE OF DARYL’S FACE WHICH CONNECTS! HERE WE GO! Kinkade is knocked back from that shot, BUT HE COMES BACK WITH A RIGHT HAND OF HIS OWN! THEN CHARLIE COMES BACK WITH ONE! THEN DARYL! CHARLIE! DARYL! CHARLIE! DARYL! THESE TWO ARE GOING AT IT AT THE CENTER OF THE RING, TWO PARTNERS FIGHTING OVER THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND VYING FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO HOLD IT! THEY AREN’T HOLDING ANYTHING BACK AS THEY LAY INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH REPEATED SHOTS TO THE HEAD! WHO’S GOING TO FALTER FIRST?!
Kawajai: IT’S CHARLIE WHO DOES AS DARYL SLOWLY BEGINS TO WIN THE PUNCH-OUT BETWEEN THE TWO MEN! Charlie is slowing to a crawl, he isn’t even throwing hands anymore! Daryl is punching Marr into submission, as he stops the assault, grabbing his partner by his arms……AND HE DRAGS HIM INTO THE CORNER, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR A SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! CHARLIE’S FIGHTING IT! THEY’RE SWITCHING SIDES, EACH MAN TRYING TO SEND ONE ANOTHER INTO A SUPLEX……DARYL CONNECTS AS HE SENDS CHARLIE INTO THE CORNER WITH A BRUTAL SUPLEX, NEARLY FOLDING MARR IN HALF! He slumps down onto the mat as Daryl looks at him with a fiery look in his eyes, as he runs off to the opposite corner, coming back! DARYL CHARGES! POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! BUT WAIT! CHARLIE SPRINGS TO LIFE FROM HIS CORNER AND RUNS AS WELL! HE GOES FOR THE CHARING CROSS!
Angel: DARYL MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE, BUT JUST BARELY! HE FLOATS OVER, SHIFTING CHARLIE……LIFTING HIM UP IN A PRECARIOUS POSITION……DARYL IS LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH THE BEAUTIFUL LIE! HE HAS CHARLIE UP, HIS LEGS ARE CROSSED FOR THE CROSS LEGGED FISHERMAN BUSTER! OH MY GOD! CHARLIE IS UP IN THE AIR AND TRYING TO FIGHT IT, BUT DARYL IS HELL BENT ON CONNECTING WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL LIE – WAIT! PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL FROM BEHIND! SUPERKICK! MY GOD, A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF KINKADE’S HEAD AS HE IS KNOCKED DOWN ON THE MAT, AND HE DROPS MARR WHO FALLS HARD! HOT DAMN! That was a perfect Superkick AND time to strike, POP capitalized on his two opponents and took out two bird with one stone! Both Charlie and Daryl are out on the mat, and Daryl surely must be in another dimension after THAT superkick to the back of the skull! PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL GOES FOR THE COVER ON DARYL!
Kawajai: NO! KINKADE KICKS OUT, HE IS NOT GOING DOWN, NOT BY A LONG SHOT! POP should’ve known it’s going to take more than that to keep his opponents down, especially Daryl who prides himself on being the Underdog in the room, never willing to back down from a fight even when the odds seem not in his favor! POP doesn’t look to surprised though, he stands back up and is ready to go at it again! Charlie retreats to a corner, trying to pull himself using the ropes! BUT POP IS RIGHT THERE! JUMPING CORNER CLOTHESLINE BY PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL SLAMMING HIS ARM DOWN ONTO CHARLIE MARR’S CHEST IN THE CORNER, WHO THEN FALLS ONTO THE MAT ONCE MORE! Like I said, he is not going to give his opponents any chances whatsoever to gain the upper hand on him! He’s taken out Charlie and now has shifted his attention to Daryl, who is back onto his feet once more! AND POP RUSHES TOWARDS HIM! KINKADE PROPELS HIM UPWARDS, BUT POP LANDS ON THE APRON, SAFE! He turns around – ONLY TO MEET POP WHO GREETS HIM WITH A FOREARM THAT SENDS HIM REELING BACKWARDS, LEAVING HIM IN PRIME POSITION FOR HIM TO ATTACK! He’s gripping the ropes tightly, stomping his feet on the apron…..AND HE SPRINGS OFF THE TOP ROPE! SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH BY POP! NOO!!! DARYL COUNTERS IT WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO HIS JAW! HOLY HELL!
Angel: WHAT AN AMAZING REVERSAL BY DARYL, AS HE CONNECTS WITH THAT BICYCLE KNEE SHOT AND PREVENTS POP FROM HITTING THE FOREARM! Prince of Phenomenal lands on the mat with a thump after that shot as Daryl runs towards him, GOING ONTO THE CHAMPION FOR THE PIN! WILL THIS BE IT?!
Angel: NOPE! NOPE! POP KICKS OUT, HE’S FIGHTING FOR THIS WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! BUT DARYL DOESN’T WANT TO LOSE THE MOMENTUM HE GARNERED FROM THAT BICYCLE KNEE, HE PICKS UP POP…….AND PUTS HIM IN POSITION FOR THE CRADLE DDT! HE MIGHT CONNECT WITH IT, HE’S IN PRIME POSITION FOR IT! WAIT! CHARLIE MARR! CHARLIE MARR FROM BEHIND GRABS DARYL BY THE WAIST! GERMAN SUPLEX AS DARYL HAS POP IN A CRADLE DDT POSITION! OH MY GOD, WHAT A COMBINATION MANEUVER! NOW THAT IS HOW YOU TAKE OUT TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE! WOW! He nearly breaks Daryl’s back with a filthy German suplex, while simultaneously possibly knocking Prince of Phenomenal unconscious while Daryl already had him in the Cradle DDT! What a use of the situation there by Charlie, as now he is the only man in the ring left standing! This match has been nothing but a high-octane, fast-paced explosion of wrestling ability and power from these three amazing wrestlers, and I expected nothing less! Charlie right now has the advantage, as he stares at Prince of Phenomenal who is barely moving in the ring….he’s looking to send him down tonight and take that championship for himself, regardless of the bond he’s formed with Daryl! My God! He grabs POP, slowly lifting him off of the mat, looking to end it! HE GRABS HIS ARMS IN A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK! HE’S GOING FOR THE QUEEN IS DEAD! THE QUEEN IS DEAD!
Kawajai: BUT POP WITH QUICK THINKING AS HE STEPS BACKWARDS AND SENDS CHARLIE TUMBLING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPES ONTO RINGSIDE! He propels Charlie forward and out of the ring, allowing POP some extra time to breathe, as now he’s on his feet once more – dizzy, but ready to fight! Charlie uses our announcer’s table to stand up, as he turns…..OH MY!!! HERE COMES POP, HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND THEN COMES FORTH! TOPE CON HILO BY PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL ESSENTIALLY WIPING CHARLIE OFF OF THE FACE OF THIS MATCH, DAMN! HE FLIPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LANDS ONTO MARR ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A BEAUTIFUL TOPE CON HILO, TAKING HIM OUT OF THE EQUATION! POP has just been on fire tonight, and you can clearly tell how much he wants to keep this championship for himself, not allowing either of these two to take it from him! He stands up on his feet, using leverage from his nearby surroundings to stand up! But wait….he’s thinking of something here! He’s looking around at the crowd, then back at Daryl who is only just now recovering in the ring……he pokes around UNDER THE APRON! What’s he thinking of getting here?! He…..BRINGS OUT A STEEL CHAIR! OH NO! THIS DOES NOT SPELL GOOD NEWS FOR DARYL RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE AS SOON AS HE FINISHES RECOVERING HE’LL BE MET WITH THE HARD PAIN OF STEEL! Prince of Phenomenal slams the chair down onto the floorboard mat, giving a smile as he slides back into the ring! POP LIFTS UP THAT STEEL CHAIR, LOOKING TO STRIKE IT DOWN ONTO KINKADE WHO IS JUST NOW ON HIS FEET! OH MYY!!!!!
Angel: DARYL KINKADE LEAPS FOR A BICYCLE KICK ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR WHICH CONNECTS! HOLY SHIT! HE HITS A BICYCLE KICK ON THAT CHAIR AND SENDS IT BACK INTO THE FACE OF POP WHO WAS HOLDING IT! HAHA! POP grabs his face in pain from the chair being sent back….I think there’s even a little blood dripping from his nose! AND DARYL FOLLOWS IT UP IMMEDIATELY WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, KNOCKING HIM ONTO SPAGHETTI LEGS! DARYL THEN KEEPS UP THE MOMENTUM TRAIN, FLOATING OVER TO THE BACK OF POP! SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! WAIT! NO! PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL LANDS ON HIS FEET AS HE FLIPS BACKWARDS! WHAT AGILITY! Daryl rises to his feet, thinking he took POP down! AND POP CHARGES WITH JUMPING CLOTHESLINE! DARYL DODGES IT, DUCKING UNDER! The two turn to face each other again – AND THEY BOTH CONNECT WITH A FIST TO EACH OF THEIR JAWS AT THE SAME TIME! THEY HIT EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME – BUT POP RECOVERS FIRST AND GOES FOR A SHOOT KICK! DARYL CATCHES THE LEG BEFORE IT CONNECTS WITH HIS CHEST! DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP TWISTING THE LEG OF POP AND CAUSING HIM TO FALL DOWN IN PAIN! NICE REVERSAL BY KINKADE! POP screams in pain on the mat, but Daryl won’t allow him to heal as he lifts him by the head, and drags him to the corner! He runs to the opposite corner then charges back! HE GOES FOR A BIG BOOT – BUT POP! HE MANAGES TO RECOVER AND DUCKS THE BOOT! Daryl turns around ONLY TO MEET THE PELE KICK ACROSS THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! PELE KICK! AND BOTH MEN FALL TO THE MAT, COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED AND TAKEN OUT! WOW! WHAT A SEQUENCE!
Kawajai: Each man was finding counters to counters, as if they were evenly matched! The crowd is beginning to root for Daryl here, they want to see him win and not be completely out of it but he expended a lot of energy for that sequence! Both of them did, and I’d be surprised if any of them would be able to fight to that kind of ability after that – OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! CHARLIE MARR! CHARLIE MARR OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE DEATH OR GLORY ELBOW DROP! HE JUST CAME OUT OF ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE AND LANDED ON DARYL KINKADE WITH A DIVING ELBOW DROP STRAIGHT INTO HIS CHEST, JUST AFTER HE WAS COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED! WHAT THE HELL?! I DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE HE WAS THERE, UP ON THE TOP ROPE!
Angel: BUT HE WAS! HE WAS THERE AND HE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION ONCE MORE! CHARLIE PROVING HIMSELF TO BE THE MASTER OPPORTUNIST IN THIS MATCH, ATTACKING WHEN IT IS THE RIGHT TIME FOR HIM, EVEN AT THE EXPENSE OF DARYL! CHARLIE IS FULLY ENERGIZED, READY TO WIN, AND HE LIFTS DARYL OFF THE MAT! HE GRABS HIM BY THE ARMS! OH MY GOD! THE QUEEN IS DEAD! THE QUEEN IS DEAD! THE QUEEN IS DEAD DDT CONNECTS, THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DRIVING DARYL’S HEAD DOWN ONTO THE MAT! THAT’S IT! THAT’S IT! WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A NEW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! CHARLIE MARR LIFTS THE LEG OF DARYL KINKADE FOR THE PIN! HOLY FUCKING SHIT! HE’S GOING TO WIN!
Kawajai: NO WAY! NO FUCKING WAY! DARYL KINKADE……HE JUST KICKED OUT! HAHA! OH MY LORD! I THOUGHT HE WAS DONE FOR GOOD, SO DID NICK, AND SO DID THIS CROWD BUT HE IS STILL ALIVE AND KICKING, FOLKS! KINKADE JUST KICKED OUT OF TWO OF CHARLIE MARR’S BIGGEST MOVES IN HIS ARSENAL, IN SUCCESSION! WOW! HE REALLY IS THE UNDERDOG, ISN’T HE?! HE’S DEFINITELY GOT THE HEART OF ONE! CHARLIE IS AS STUNNED AS WE ARE, HE CAN’T WRAP AROUND HOW HE MANAGED TO KICK OUT OF THAT! GUESS YOU UNDERESTIMATED THE ONE HALF OF MARRKADE! Daryl lifted his shoulder before the count of three, how he managed to pull that off? We don’t know, but what we do certainly know is that this match is still going on! Charlie is standing, his mouth agape and wondering how on earth Kinkade could have kicked out of that! WAIT! HE SHOULD’VE BEEN PAYING ATTENTION BECAUSE FROM BEHIND! POP WHACKS CHARLIE’S SPINE WITH A STEEL CHAIR FROM BEHIND! OH MY GOD! PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL HAS THE STEEL CHAIR, AND NOW HE’S JUST CONTINUOUSLY SLAMMING THE CHAIR DOWN ONTO MARR’S BACK, LEGS, ARMS, AND HEAD! THIS IS ALL LEGAL, FOLKS! NOTHING THE REFEREE CAN DO HERE ABOUT IT! BRUTAL! ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL AS POP IS JUST DECIMATING CHARLIE RIGHT NOW WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR! AND HE DROPS IT, THROWING IT OUTSIDE IN FURY! POP IS MAD! HE DID NOT THINK THIS MATCH WOULD GO THIS WAY! HE WANTED TO END TONIGHT QUICKLY, BUT THINGS DIDN’T GO AS PLANNED FOR HIM AND HE’S PISSED ABOUT IT!
Angel: Marr and Kinkade have defied his expectations and right now? All he is focused on is getting this victory and keeping his championship, no matter the cost, even if it means bringing that Steel Chair in here! He rushes his hand through his hair, clearly in a rage……but he’s slowly calming down! He can see Charlie, who is trying to use the turnbuckles to lift himself up! POP looks at Daryl with rage in his eyes……AND HE RUNS TOWARDS HIM! MARR DUCKS UNDER THE CLOTHESLINE AND RUNS OFF TO THE ROPES! BOUNCING BACK WITH A BRUTAL KNEE STRIKE TO HIS JAW! WHAT ATHLETICISM! THAT KNEE WAS LOUD ENOUGH TO HEAR FROM MILES AWAY! MY GOD, HOW IS HE EVEN STANDING! HE GOT BRUTALIZED BY THE STEEL CHAIR, BUT MUCH LIKE DARYL HE IS DRIVEN BY THAT CHAMPIONSHIP TO SUCCEED! HE’S WOBBLY, BUT HE STILL MANAGES TO GRAB PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL AND LIFT HIM OFF THE GROUND! He places him in the corner, slowly but surely…..AND LIFTS HIM UP TO THE TOP! HE’S PUTTING HIM IN A PRECARIOUS POSITION NOW! CHARLIE STANDS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE, THROWING FISTS TO THE TOP OF POP’S SKULL……WHAT IS CHARLIE THINKING OF HERE? HE GRABS THE ARMS ONCE MORE! OH MY GOD! HE’S GOING FOR AN AVALANCHE THE QUEEN IS DEAD! AN AVALANCHE VERSION OF THAT DDT IS A SUREFIRE WAY TO GIVE SOMEONE BRAIN DAMAGE, BUT MARR DOESN’T CARE! HE’S GOING TO DO THIS TO POP, AND POP’S TRYING TO FIGHT IT BUT HE’S TOO WEAK! HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING!
Kawajai: DARYL KINKADE!!!! DARYL KINKADE LEAPS ONTO CHARLIE FROM BEHIND, AND JUMPS ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! OH MY FUCKING GOD! AVALANCHE INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER BY DARYL KINKADE ONTO CHARLIE MARR SENDING HIM FLIPPING BACKWARDS HEADFIRST ONTO THE MAT! JESUS CHRIST! HE – HE MAY HAVE JUST KILLED HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER THERE WITH THAT MOVE! CHARLIE IS BARELY MOVING! HOW DID HE EVEN WAKE UP AFTER THE BEATING HE TOOK FROM HIM?!
Angel: ADRENALINE AND HEART WILL DRIVE YOU TO PLACES YOU’D NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D BE ABLE TO REACH! THAT’S WHAT’S DRIVING DARYL RIGHT NOW! CHARLIE IS PRACTICALLY UNMOVING ON THE MAT AS DARYL IMMEDIATELY GRABS POP OFF OF THE TOP ROPE, BY HIS ARM AND LEG! THE BEAUTIFUL LIE! THE BEAUTIFUL LIE! THE BEAUTIFUL LIE LANDS AND SLAMS POP’S BACK ONTO THE CENTER OF THE RING, SHAKING THE ENTIRE SQUARED-CIRCLE! HOLY FUCK! HOLY FUCK! DARYL KINKADE JUS TOOK OUT THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, AND HE IS GOING TO BECOME THE NEW ONE! CHARLIE IS TRYING TO CRAWL BUT HE CAN BARELY MOVE! KINKADE…..iS THIS IT?! HE LIFTS UP THE LEG OF POP AND FALLS ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, BARELY MOVING A MUSCLE! HIS SHOULDERS ARE DOWN, IS THIS THE END OF THE REIGN OF PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL???!!!
Kawajai: CHARLIE LEAPS AND MANAGES TO DRAPE AN ARM OVER THE LEFT SHOULDER OF THE UNCONSCIOUS POP! WHAT??!!
Nick Angel and Kawajai: WHAT???!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(No theme music is heard as both the announcers and the fans are confused as to what just happened. Neither man in the ring is moving, as the camera looks towards……and sees both men have pinned Prince of Phenomenal by his shoulders!)
Angel: WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?! WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!
Kawajai: LOOK! IT’S COMMISSIONER MATT DANIELS!
(Daniels walks out from the backstage area as Daryl and Charlie slowly begin to stir.)
Angel: Looks like Charlie and Daryl are moving again! Matt Daniels is here, why in the hell –
Kawajai: MARR AND KINKADE ARE ARGUING IN THE RING! They both pinned Prince of Phenomenal, but who is the winner?! They’re arguing over who should have that title, but Matt Daniels gets in the ring before it can get even uglier between the two of them! He’s…..whispering something to both of their ears…..and they’re back arguing again!
Angel: Whatever Daniels has to say, he better say it quick! All of us are dying to know what happened…..and I think it’s about to be said!
(On the titantron, we see a replay of the ending of the match, where Daryl pins Prince of Phenomenal right after hitting the Beautiful Lie, only for Charlie to jump in at the last second, draping an arm over the left shoulder. Matt Daniels then whispers something to Bella Braxton, to which she nods her head, before beginning to speak.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, because both Daryl Kinkade AND Charlie Marr managed to cover the shoulders of Prince of Phenomenal……as per the orders of Commissioner Matt Daniels……HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS, AND THE NEEEEEEEEEEEEEW CO-EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!………DARYLLL KIIINNNKAAAAADEEEE, AAANNDD CHAAARLIEE MAAAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
Nick Angel and Kawajai: WHAT?!
(Kinkade and Marr look at each other in complete shock, as the referee has the National Elite Championship in his hands, raising it in the air for the both of them. They are completely in shock as Matt Daniels shakes his head, everyone in the crowd letting out sounds of confusion and anger.
Angel: Did…I just hear what I think i heard?
Kawajai: YES! YES YOU DID! CHARLIE MARR AND DARYL KINKADE ARE CO-NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONS! I DON’T KNOW HOW IT COULD’VE HAPPENED! I DON’T UNDERSTAND THE POSSIBILITIES BUT IT HAPPENED! THEY ARE CO-CHAMPS!
Angel: WELL I’LL BE DAMNED! WHY?! THIS……THIS IS HORRIBLE! This could have been a proper ending where ONE was crowned! But Daniels couldn’t decide I suppose and he let this happen! This is something completely out of left field and unwanted! This was one of my most hyped match of the evening but then this?!
Kawajai: Well, I can’t blame you Nick! But you have to understand the situation these two men were in! Like it or not, they both pinned Prince of Phenomenal, so they both have as much of a right to be National Elite Champions as the other! It just seems that now, Commissioner Daniels has decided to throw a complete wildcard and make TWO National Elite Champions! This is historical! This is something completely new and unprecedented –
Angel: UNPRECEDENTED? NAH, THIS IS STUPID! Plain stupidity, Kawa! I can speak my opinion freely and my opinion is that this is one of the strangest, most unwanted endings in history!
Kawajai: At the very least, we can agree that the match beforehand was absolutely spectacular. All three of them had their chance to shine, each of them wanted that Championship more than anything else in the world, and they showed it! This was a brutal and exciting battle that shows just how amazing the Voltage Brand truly is and how talented our performers are! And THUS ends the reign of Prince of Phenomenal, who ran roughshod with that title for a long, long time! Credit where credit is due, he was a powerful Champion who knew how to make do of situations, which led him to reigning for as long as he did. But his empire was bound to crash, and we have just witnessed that tonight! I, for one, am not disappointed with the results and am excited with what the future holds for this! Honestly, if you were in Commissioner Daniel’s shoes, you’d have to make a lot of tough decisions like this! He went the right route doing this and I expect nothing less.
Angel: Whatever you say. All I care about is just how this will end since we all know well that this saga is very much going to be continued, and that the future of our “Co-National Elite Champions” are going to be monumental for these two men, that we can guarantee. Ending aside, I can call it what it is: A goddamn spectacle.
Kawajai: The only way to go from here with tonight’s show is up as it is finally time for our main event! The World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite! The number one contender Rex McAllister! It’s gonna be a classic!
(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/478721464434950146/Crossfire_Elite-vs-Rex.png flashes across the screen to a loud pop)
(Highlights of Rex and Chris Elite fighting alongside one another in late 2017 as Elite Tandem play. It then transitions to their simultaneous rise to the top as Chris Elite would capture the World Heavyweight Championship in Brooklyn, while later that month Rex McAllister would capture the EAW Championship at the Grand Rampage. It then shows their various feuds leading up to Pain for Pride which ends in triumph for Chris Elite, but heartbreak for Rex McAllister. Rex is shown drafted to Voltage where he’d win a number one contenders match and highlights of his feud with Chris Elite play ending with Chris holding the championship high in the sky as Rex looks on.)
(“Still Unbroken” Lynyrd Skynyrd hits to loud boos from Chris Elite’s hometown crowd as Rex McAllister makes his way out to the ring unphased and determined.)
Kawajai: Talk about uncharted territory for Rex McAllister. He’s not used to this type of reception but when you’re against a man who’s a hometown hero this is to be expected. Rex McAllister has been a world champion as recent as two months ago, so this is a stage he is all familiar with and he’s looking to capture his second world championship of 2018!
Angel: It’s going to be a tough task against Chris Elite, and here of all places, but if there’s anyone who can overcome the odds, it’s him!
(Rex waits in the ring as suddenly the lights dim, anticipation from the crowd grows with each second of suspense…. and then pyro pops up in the beginning of the ramp as “Odee” by A Boogie hits to a humongous roar of cheers. Chris Elite makes his way out to the ring with the World Heavyweight Championship held high as he walks down the ramp with it continued to be held. He stops in the middle of the ramp to notice a young fan with his merch on, and he takes off one of his chains and places it around his neck.)
Kawajai: Talk about a homecoming for Chris! Last time Chris was in Brooklyn he won this very championship. When he defeated Malcolm Jones at Pain for Pride… this city had a block party in anticipation for his victory and celebrated like it was new years when he won. When I say Chris Elite is a hero to Brooklyn, I feel like it’s an understatement. He’s like what Lebron is to Ohio. These people see him and they see hope and inspiration. That is why I know Chris will be walking out of Brooklyn with that championship still in his possession, there’s no way he’ll let his people see him fail.
(Chris enters the ring talking smack to Rex before doing his signature pose, he then hands the ref the championship.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! And it is for the EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Sea Isle, New Jersey, weighing in at 238 pounds…… REX MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!
(Rex poses as the crowd boos)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from BROOKLYN, NEW YORK!!
(The crowd gives a huge reaction of cheers)
Bella Braxton: Weighing in at 210 pounds, he is the EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION…….. CHRISSSSSS ELITTTEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Chris poses to a thunderous ovation from the crowd)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: This hotly anticipated EAW Championship showdown is underway as the bell sounds! Rex is looking confident and poised as he circles the equally confident, collected World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite, and Elite follows him around before initiating a tie-up that Rex hastily obliges! The two are locked up in the center of the ring before Elite gains favorable position on Rex McAllister, gripping him by the arm and Irish whipping him off the ropes, trying to find him on the follow-through for a clothesline, but nobody’s home as Rex ducks his head underneath the attempt from Elite, swinging off the ropes and colliding into Elite as he rebounds off the ropes and meets the World Heavyweight Champion in the middle of the ring for a shoulder block! Elite is momentarily stunned before quickly getting back up to his feet, somewhat in a daze, and Rex wants to capitalize and continue taking advantage of this moment as he now backs Elite up against the turnbuckles, connecting with a knee to the mid-section of the current World Heavyweight Champion!
Nick Angel: Another knee to the midsection of Chris Elite, and he’s completely prone as he’s backed up against those turnbuckles, now being hoisted atop the ropes forcibly by Rex McAllister! McAllister has him on the second rung of the ropes, and a disrespectful, defiant slap to the face of Chris Elite by Rex — FOLLOWED BY A HEADBUTT FROM CHRIS ELITE TO REX! That sends Rex staggering back, holding his head in pain, but it may have done just as much damage to Elite as he’s holding his head as well! Rex McAllister turns around, and out of nowhere it’s Elite with a hurricanrana from the ropes, sending Rex McAllister flailing on his back in the ring! What an impressive aerial maneuver by Elite, and you can thank Rex for putting him in perfect position to execute it in picture-perfect fashion! Elite clutches at his head in pain for a brief moment before going right back on the offensive, wailing away with mudhole boot stomps to the pectoral region of Rex, who remains grounded after that hurricanrana! Elite thinks he has him subdued and wastes no time darting toward the ropes, now scaling those ropes as he readies himself! Elite is perched atop the ropes as he stares into the soul of the downed Rex like a hawk eyeballing his prey, and he leaps from the top, trying to connect with a Frog Splash and send Rex McAllister home early — BUT REX MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! REX MCALLISTER MOVED OUT OF THE WAY IN THE NICK OF TIME, LEAVING CHRIS ELITE FALLING SHOULDER-FIRST AGAINST THE MAT AS NOBODY’S HOME! WHAT INCREDIBLE RING AWARENESS BY REX TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY RIGHT THERE! ELITE IS AGONIZING IN PAIN ON THE CANVAS, AND I DON’T KNOW IF HE’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO RECOVER FROM THIS FOR THE REST OF THE MATCH!
Kawajai: Chris Elite has taken worse falls and gotten back on his feet before, so why would you think this would be any different? Elite’s going to persevere and do his thing — it’s just a matter of Rex executing his gameplan better! Rex now clings to the ropes, pushing himself up using them for leverage as Elite remains downed on the canvas, letting out a shriek of pain! Rex is back to a vertical base and he sees Elite is in a vulnerable state right now and he sizes him up for a brief moment, measuring his position, and making sure he’s in the perfect spot as he cavalierly saunters forward and now leaps, and he connects with a high knee drop not just grazing the forehead of Chris Elite, but with incredible impact as you heard that thud when Rex’s knee leveled the cranium of the incapacitated Chris Elite! Rex now hooks the leg of Elite going for the pin!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOO!!….
Nick Angel: But a kickout by Chris Elite! Of course Rex didn’t expect anything else, but he’s trying to gain a mental edge against Chris Elite, and what better way to do that than to strike first blood? Rex is trying to psychologically take Chris Elite off his game and thus far he’s executed that plan to perfection as, despite the back-and-forth thus far, Elite’s in a bad way right now! Rex grabs Elite by the arm and forces him back to a vertical base, now Irish whipping him off the ropes and trying to find him on the follow-through — and he does! — as he executes a Snap Scoop Slam on Chris Elite who’s completely helpless to stop him! Rex McAllister goes for another cover after that Snap Scoop Slam, and maybe this time with some more luck on his side as he looks to become the World Heavyweight Champion!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!….
Kawajai: BUT A KICKOUT BY CHRIS ELITE! No matter what Rex does, Chris Elite is just gonna keep on kicking as he stays alive right there. That’s been the story of Elite’s entire title reign — the guy just keeps on chugging. You can put him down, but for how long? Elite is favoring various body parts, particularly his head and now his lower back as he tries to recuperate. Rex isn’t allowing him to, however, as Chris Elite gets about half of the way back up to his feet, but only to be met with a stiff Shoot Kick to the back from Rex! Elite yelps in agony, crying out in pain, and Rex is subjecting Elite to punishment he hasn’t felt for maybe the entirety of his title reign thus far! Elite has just struggled to muster any kind of momentum up. Could that spell disaster for the incumbent champion or will he find a way to bounce back and prevail? Not if Rex has anything to say about it as he tightly wrenches his arms around the head of Chris Elite, applying that headlock and grounding Elite! Rex is trying to cut off the oxygen to Elite’s brain and turn him into a sitting duck once he releases this hold! Elite is trying to regain some momentum as the crowd begins to rally behind him, clapping their hands in rhythmic unison, but it appears to be to no avail as Rex even more tightly wrenches his hands around the head of Elite, reddening it like a tomato! Rex has a sickening, twisted smirk on his face as if he’s enjoying every bit of this, proving he’s more championship material than the current World Heavyweight Champion himself! Hold on a minute, though, as Elite seems to be stirring, gaining some steam…
Nick Angel: Chris Elite is using all the force in his body to try and regain a vertical base and break the headlock that Rex McAllister currently has him in! Elite is on his knees, and Rex is doing everything he can to try and keep Elite down, tightening that headlock, but Elite just continues, and now Elite is back to a vertical base! Rex still has that headlock tightly applied, but it’s Chris Elite with an elbow to the midsection of Rex McAllister! Rex is going to feel that one tomorrow for sure, but in this moment his adrenaline is empowering him to keep that hold locked in on an Elite, and now Rex transitions the headlock into the Cobra clutch submission! Just when you thought Elite was finally picking up momentum, Rex does him one better! Rex just completely one-upped Elite right there — BUT IT SEEMS I SPOKE TOO SOON AS ELITE QUICKLY MANAGES TO REVERSE THE COBRA CLUTCH WITH A SNAPMARE TAKEOVER! WHAT INCREDIBLE FORCE DEPLOYED BY THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION RIGHT THERE, HE WAS SICK OF BEING IN THE GRIP OF REX MCALLISTER FOR THAT LONG AND NOW HE’S TAKING OUT HIS FURY, WAILING AWAY WITH FOREARMS TO THE HEAD OF THE GROUNDED REX MCALLISTER, RECKLESSLY THROWING HAYMAKERS AS REX DOES HIS BEST TO DODGE THEM, AND NOW A SLUG FROM ELITE CATCHES RIGHT UNDER THE EYE OF REX MCALLISTER — DID THAT BUST HIM OPEN?? I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE! YOU CAN SEE BLOOD TRICKLING DOWN FROM UNDER THE EYE OF REX MCALLISTER! CHRIS ELITE JUST BUSTED REX OPEN, AND NOW IT’S PERSONAL! ELITE CONTINUES PUTTING ON THE PRESSURE, CONNECTING WITH A FLURRY OF CLOSED-FIST PUNCHES TO REX AS HE REMAINS GROUNDED, HELPLESS TO PREVENT THE WRATH OF CHRIS ELITE, AND ELITE’S APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION FINALLY APPEARS TO TEMPORARILY HAVE BEEN SATED! ELITE DRAWS HIS DISTANCE AND IT APPEARS REX MCALLISTER’S VISION IS OBSCURED BY THE BLOOD AROUND HIS EYES, JUST SMEARED ALL OVER HIS FACE AFTER THOSE PUNCHES BY CHRIS ELITE! WOW!
Kawajai: A little blood isn’t going to stop Rex from doing his thing, not in the lawless domain of EAW anyway, but Chris Elite is in the driver’s seat right now! There’s no stopping him in this moment. He has entered “the zone,” and it’s going to be an amazingly difficult task for Rex to get him out of that zone. Elite now darts toward the ropes again, trying to dig into his aerial arsenal to put Rex McAllister away and notch another successful title defense under his belt! Elite grabs Rex McAllister and forcibly puts him back to a vertical base! Elite reconsiders going to the top rope now as he walks back on over to the grounded Rex. Elite looks in the eyes of Rex and he mouths “this is my strap, my title!” pointing over to the timekeeper’s area where his World Heavyweight Championship is seated, and now Elite locks onto his target, going for a belly-to-belly suplex! BUT REX DEAD-WEIGHTS CHRIS ELITE, HOLDING FIRM, AND NOW CATCHING ELITE IN HIS TRACKS AND KICKING HIM IN THE GROIN, HOLDING HIM STEADY FOR A MOMENT BEFORE HOISTING HIM HIGH UP IN THE AIR AND NOW EXECUTING A POWERBOMB — WHAT?! ELITE RAKED THE EYES OF REX MCALLISTER AS HE WAS IN MID-FLIGHT FOR THAT POTENTIAL POWERBOMB ATTEMPT, AND REX RECOILS WHILE THE ATHLETIC ACROBAT CHRIS ELITE LANDS ON A VERTICAL BASE! ELITE RUNS TOWARD REX WITH THAT PATENTED SPRINTER ATHLETE SPEED, GRABBING HIM BY THE BACK OF HIS NECK AND TAKING HIM FORWARD IN A FURY, PLANTING HIM FACE-FIRST AAINST THE TOP ROPE WITH THAT MODIFIED BULLDOG! ELITE IS MAKING USE OF THE ELEMENTS IN THE RING TONIGHT, DOING ABSOLUTELY WHATEVER HE CAN TO STIFLE THE ONSLAUGHT OF REX MCALLISTER, AND NOW ELITE JUST STOCKS REX, WAITING FOR HIM TO POP HIS HEAD UP EVEN HALF-WAY! AND REX MCALLISTER’S HEAD IS POPPED UP! MCALLISTER’S FEET ARE STILL ON THE GROUND BUT THE TOP HALF OF HIS BODY IS UP, AND HE HAS THAT GLAZED-OVER LOOK IN HIS EYES! ELITE IS GIDDY WITH EXCITEMENT AS REX TURNS HIS BLOODY SIGHTS OVER TO HIM, AND NOW ELITE — BOX OFFICE SMASH!!! THE BOX OFFICE SMASH TO THE HALF-GROUNDED REX MCALLISTER!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: BUT REX MCALLISTER SWEEPS THE LEG!!!! REX SWEEPS THE LEG OF CHRIS ELITE AS HE WAS HOISTING IT IN THE AIR, TRYING TO PLANT THE BACK OF HIS BOOT IN THE FACE OF REX, AND REX TAKES HIM UP BY THE LEGS AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINEBUSTER! THE TWO MEN ARE NOW BOTH ON THE GROUND, LAID OUT, EXHAUSTED, BUT IT’S CLEAR REX HAS SOME MORE ENERGY RIGHT NOW AS HE READIES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! REX WITH A LION’S ROAR AS HE GETS BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE, AND CHRIS ELITE TRAILS SHORTLY BEHIND CLUTCHING HIS LOWER BACK AFTER THAT SPINEBUSTER! REX HAS CHRIS ELITE UP, AND NOW AN IRISH WHIP OFF THE ROPES TO CHRIS ELITE, BUT CHRIS ELITE MEETS REX IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AND CONNECTS WITH A FLYING FOREARM SMASH — BUT INSTEAD OF GOING DOWN REX JUST STAGGERS BACK, AND NOW ELITE SEES THIS AND HE SPRINTS FORWARD GOING FOR A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE — AND REX TAKES THE TOP ROPE DOWN, FORCING ELITE OVER IT! ELITE HOLDS ON INSTEAD OF BEING DUMPED TO THE OUTSIDE, AND REX HAS NO IDEA UNTIL HE TURNS AROUND AND ELITE SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES — BUT REX WITH A DROPKICK TO THE ROPE, FORCING ELITE PLUNGING DOWNWARD AND UP AGAINST THE MAT! REX IS IN PERFECT POSITION RIGHT NOW, CATCHING CHRIS ELITE COMPLETELY AND ENTIRELY OFF GUARD AFTER THAT DROPKICK TO THE ROPES TO TOTALLY TAKE ELITE OFF HIS BALANCE — AND REX MCALLISTER CONNECTS, EMPHATICALLY, WITH THE REX EFFECT!! THE REX EFFECT CONNECTS, AND IT LAYS OUT THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, WITH NOWHERE TO GO, AND REX COLLAPSES OVER CHRIS ELITE IN EXHAUSTION, BARELY MANAGING TO HOOK A SINGLE LEG! NEW CHAMPION!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: REX DID IT!!! REX DID IT!! REX HAS DEFEATED CHRIS ELITE TO CAPTURE HIS SECOND WORLD TITLE IN UNDER FOUR MONTHS!!! THIS BROOKLYN CROWD CANNOT BELIEVE IT AS IT IS JUST COMPLETE SILENCE BUT REX EARNED THIS VICTORY HERE TONIGHT AND THERE IS NO TAKING IT AWAY FROM HIM!!
(“Still Unbroken” picks back up as Rex McAllister still unable to get to his feet in disbelief is handed the World Heavyweight Championship by the ref)
Bella Braxton: YOUR WINNER AND NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION….. REX MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!!
(The boos from the Brooklyn crowd flood throughout the arena as they become more audible than Rex’s theme)
Nick Angel: THESE FANS MAY NOT LIKE IT AND UNDERSTANDABLY SO, BUT THERE IS NO TAKING AWAY THIS PERFORMANCE FROM REX! FROM SUFFERING THE ULTIMATE HEART BREAK AT PAIN FOR PRIDE TO BEING DRAFTED AWAY FROM WHAT WAS HIS HOME BRAND, HE MADE LEMONADE OUT OF LEMONS AND MADE DUE HERE ON VOLTAGE! THE PERSISTENCE AND DEDICATION HAS PAID OFF! REX IS NOW A TWO TIME WORLD CHAMPION! A TRUE LIVING TESTAMENT TO THE SAYING “HARD WORK PAYS OFF”!!!
(Rex finally makes it to his feet with assistance from the ropes and a ref who raises his hand in victory. He then notices Chris in the other corner also struggling to get up who eventually makes it to his feet. He approaches Chris who turns around and notices him and he extends his hand to Chris Elite as a sign of respect.)
(Chris hesitates and looks at him for a while before finally giving in and shaking Rex’s hand and lifts it up pointing towards him as the crowd finally embraces Rex with Chris’ approval.)
Kawajai: The ultimate sign of respect from two former tag team partners. These two men rose to prominence in EAW and entered world championship discussions right alongside one another and now they’re headlining events against one another for world championships. Chris Elie has had a helluva year so far and has continuously defied expectations from start to finish. Something tells me we certainly haven’t seen the best of him just yet.
(Rex rolls out of the ring with his newly won championship in hand as Chris stands in the ring looking on. As Rex walks through the curtain, his music stops as “Odee” picks up and the Brooklyn crowd chants “Thank you Chris!” as Chris Elite looks on proudly and nods his head in approval.)
Angel: You hit the nail on the head Kawa! Chris Elite has been counted out and slept on so many times in his career that I’m sure this loss will only make him stronger. Kudos to Chris on an amazing championship reign, Brooklyn has everything to be proud of!
(Chris is shown making his way to the back being serenaded by the fans on his way down as the camera fades to black.)
