(EAW intro plays.)
(A recap of last week’s Voltage is shown, starting with the very beginning of the show, where it was announced that Jamie O’Hara had been taken out of action by New Eden. After this, Shane Gates wins a triple threat match against Kirk Redwood and Sebastian Garcia after pinning Sebastian, before being shocked by a returning Lizzie, who’d disappear only moments later. Next, Miku Sakai reveals that Hikari Kanno suffered an ACL and MCL tear during her interview, which would be interrupted by Mary S. Atlas, who seemed to want to congratulate Miku. Miku would disrespect Mary, even pretending to forget her name. After this Captain Charisma comes out, and reveals that Jamie O’Hara’s unfortunately injured, until New Eden interrupts. They complain about their treatment on Voltage, and Drake reveals that Myles is competing with a concussion, before Captain Charisma reveals that Myles agreed to compete. Drake is surprised by this, especially when Minerva reveals that she knew, but Myles promises that their goal of taking over Voltage is not over. After this, Lucas Johnson defeats Rebecca Blackwell thanks to interference from Kensi and Lisa Wren, who attack Mary S. Atlas and Rebecca after the match. Afterwards, Chris Elite rushes to Captain Charisma’s office to sort out the tag team turmoil situation, and Chris decides that he’ll be choosing his own partner to replace Jamie. Holly is the next one to enter the office, and Captain Charisma rewards her for winning the Brand Warfare match by giving her a shot at the Universal Women’s Championship. Jay Jerry Johnson does a promo backstage where he challenges Kirk Redwood to a no DQ match for a shot at the National Elite Championship, and afterwards Donovan Duke wins a triple threat against Jay, as well as Chris Elite, who Donovan threw out of the ring so he could pin Jay. Cleopatra reveals in an interview that she’s fine with ending her story with Minerva even if she didn’t get the ending she wanted, but the interview doesn’t last much longer as MaryBecca is heard frustrated. Cleopatra talks to them because of their interruption, and Rebecca stands up to Cleopatra, which seems to amuse Cleopatra. Candice Blair and Ms. Extreme have a talk, which leads to Candice talking about Drake King and Ms. Extreme’s apparent feelings, which Ms. Extreme quickly denies. Soon after, Candice notices that Danny has a bloody nose, and stands up to Alex Myers, who caused it, before Ryan Wilson intervenes. Next, Ryan Wilson cuts a promo where he reveals that he’s nowhere near done despite the loss he suffered at Clash of Kingdoms, and in the main event Myles and Justin Windgate defeat Ryan and Alex to move forward in the tag team turmoil tournament.)
(The intro fades out, ’33rd Blakk Glass’ by Sosmula and ZillaKami is heard as the camera opens up to the inside of the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. The camera pans around to show the EAW Universe that are watching and in the stands this week, before heading over to the commentary team of Rich Russillo, James Peters, and Persephone.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Sunday Night Voltage! We’re on the road to Wicked Games right now, and while last week didn’t start off how we hoped it would, I know for a fact that we’re going to put on a great show this week!
Rich Russillo: That’s all we do here on Voltage! Every show is better than the last, and I know that’ll be the case tonight with what we have in store.
Persephone: There’s a lot of matches tonight, but Rexy isn’t in any of them. I don’t know what you guys are talking about, this show sucks.
(The camera cuts to the stage as “Zombie” by Bad Wolves hits and the Universal Women’s Champion confidently makes her way through the curtain and out onto the stage. Those packed inside the SSE Hydro jump to their feet and roar at the top of their lungs. Ms. Extreme stands on the stage, soaking in every piece of the reaction thrown her way before slowly raising the championship resting comfortably over her shoulder into the air. Camille begins to make her way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time… The UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!!! MS. EXXXXXXTREEEEMMMMEEE!!!!
James Peters: We, alongside the Universal Women’s Champion found out that at the end of the month that the next challenger for that championship is going to be the last person standing in that Divide & Conquer match at Clash of Kingdoms; Holly Arrow.
Rich Russillo: You have to wonder how confident Camille is going to be walking into that match. Holly is still generally new to this business in comparison to the champion. Camille has stood against all comers, whether it be as the Universal Women’s Champion or even during her time as the Interwire Champion. Camille has a wealth of experience in matches like these against someone that’s going to be competing at a level like she will be on when she challenges for that championship.
James Peters: How many people expected Holly Arrow to be the winner of that Divide and Conquer match?
(Camille makes her way into the ring and is handed the microphone by Bella Braxton before she leaves the ring. “Zombie” slowly fades out as Camille takes another moment to enjoy the rambunctious Scottish crowd inside the SSE Hydro.)
Ms. Extreme: I feel good. I feel great. I look back at the night that I ripped this Universal Women’s Championship out of the hands of Darcy May Morgan at Pain for Pride and gave it the home that it had always deserved, and I think about everything that I wanted to do with it. There have been countless names before me that have held this championship and have taken so much pride in it. This championship is proof that you are undoubtedly the BEST women’s wrestler on the planet. This championship is the proof that you’ve placed the weight of an entire profession on your shoulders and prove that you are undoubtedly better than every other name that, not only this company, but this entire business throws in your way. I’ve told the world that I don’t care about the name that decides that they’re going to be the next person to test the hand of fate and attempt to force this championship out of my hands. They’re all going to meet the same fate. They’re all going to fall short in managing to conquer the Red Queen.
(The crowd cheers once more for the Universal Women’s Champion. The hint of a smile crosses her face before she continues to speak.)
Ms. Extreme: I’ve destroyed world beaters. I’ve beaten those who have stood at the top of this business as World Champions, and I have slaughtered people that never should have been given the chance to compete in this company. Last week, we were all watching as Captain Charisma told Holly Arrow her reward for winning that Divide and Conquer match at Clash of Kingdoms. She has earned her chance to truly make herself famous and TRY to get her hands on this.
(Camille takes the Universal Women’s Championship off of her shoulder and stares at it.)
Ms. Extreme: She has the chance to take away something that I spent years scratching and clawing my way to getting my hands on. While I’m a little surprised that she isn’t going to be given her shot at Wicked Games; I can understand the fact that Captain Charisma obviously understands that I’m going to be in the finals of the Tag Team Turmoil tournament, or maybe he has some incredible, awesome match already planned for me, but nonetheless – October 24th Holly Arrow has the chance to try to do the impossible, rewrite her own destiny and become the Universal Women’s Champion. I’m sure that she’s going to put everything that she could possibly muster into her moment to stand under a spotlight far greater than she’s ready for, but I’m not going to turn down the opportunity to beat the absolute snot out of her on Voltage. I mean; out of all the names in that Divide and Conquer match… how actually thought that Holly Arrow was going to be the last person standing. The biggest match; the biggest match of her career – has done nothing but given herself the chance to understand how much further she’s going to have to force herself to walk if she wants to achieve something she certainly isn’t going to do on October 24th.
(“Another Way To Die” by Alicia Keys hits as the hint of a smile returns to the face of the Universal Women’s Champion. Holly Arrow makes her way through the curtain with Josh cradled under her arm and down to the ring; her eyes locked on the champion who confidently stands in the ring looking down at her next challenger. Holly is given a microphone, but doesn’t immediately speak. She has her eyes on Camille, but more importantly on the championship that she’s going to compete for in just a few weeks.)
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK!
Holly Arrow: Out of everyone, Camille… I would have thought that you would have been the one person to understand that there’s nothing that’s impossible. You’re right. You’re absolutely right, Camille. There wasn’t anybody sitting at home or that was in that arena at Clash of Kingdoms that believed that I was going to be the name that would win that Divide and Conquer match. It was meant to be someone else. It should have been Andrea Valentine. The chance for EAW to put together an absolutely blockbuster between a former EAW World Champion and the woman that currently sits at the top of the mountain with that Universal Women’s Championship. But, it just didn’t turn out like that. There wasn’t a person that believed that I was going to be the name that would succeed, but it wasn’t Andrea’s name that was announced the winner, Camille. It wasn’t the former EAW World Champion. It wasn’t who the world thought it was going to be. It was my name, Camille.
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK!
(Josh happily borks away as Camille shoots daggers.)
Holly Arrow: It’s not going to be any different leading into our match, Camille. There’s going to be few people that are actually going to give me a chance. You’re the valiant and dominant Universal Women’s Champion and I’m the person that the world didn’t believe could succeed when she did. I’m not going to be given a chance. But, that isn’t going to slow me down. That isn’t going to stop me from believing in myself and what I know that I could possibly achieve on Voltage in a few weeks. Clash of Kingdoms proved something, Camille. It proved that the rest of the world can believe absolutely anything that they want, but what they believe is meaningless. Everyone is beatable. Anything can happen. Upsets aren’t impossible.
Ms. Extreme: Are you really going to tell yourself that you have a chance against me?
Holly Arrow: I’m not going to take anything away from you, Camille. You’ve spent years proving how good you are. You deserve to call yourself the Universal Women’s Champion. You withstood the best that both Hikari Kanno and Ximena Velasquez could throw your way. I know the mountain that I’m going to have to climb in order to take that championship. I’m going to have to be at my best; better than I have ever been, in fact. You’re going to force me to dig deeper than I ever have in order to rip that championship out of your hands, prove that Clash of Kingdoms wasn’t a fluke and have that championship sit beautifully around my waist.
Ms. Extreme: I had to listen to those two tell me the same things, Holly. I had to listen to them talk about how they were going to take this. They were going to destroy me. They were going to give the world a champion that they could be proud of and admire. There are people like them, people like you and then there are CHAMPIONS like me, Holly. There are people that have to convince themselves that they’re ready for moments like this. People that tell themselves that they’re going to prove the rest of the world wrong in what they already know they’re not going to achieve. Then there are people that have conquered that mountain. Those who have achieved that you’re not going to.
Holly Arrow: I don’t care about their failures. I know in my heart of hearts that I’m ready for this match. You need to understand that all champions are living on borrowed time and there’s always someone waiting for that moment to snatch that championship away from them.
(Camille laughs for a moment before she goes completely serious. She takes the Universal Women’s Championship off of her shoulder and raises it into the air. Holly’s eyes are locked on the championship.)
Ms Extreme: The women of EAW can be as hungry as they want. I’m just getting started with everything that I’m going to achieve with this championship, and the person that does take this championship away from me better be ready to kill me in order to do so.
(The two come nose to nose as Camille lowers the Universal Women’s Championship back down to the shoulder.)
Holly Arrow: Well, if that’s the case, champ. You may as well consider yourself a dead woman walking.
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK!
(Holly drops her microphone as does Camille a moment after. Josh continues to confidently bork as “Another Way To Die” by Alicia Keys picks back up. The crowd stand on their feet, waiting for these two elements to combust, but it doesn’t happen. The camera gets a final shot of the champion and challenger staring each other down before a graphic of their upcoming match at the 24th of October flashes across the screen and Voltage cuts to commercial.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial for the rapper Playboi Carti, just to say that he is NOT mid. Thank you.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside, where Bella Braxton is seen with a microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a NO DISQUALIFICATIONS MATCH scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Bella Braxton: And it is to determine the number one contender for The National Elite CHAMPIONSHIIIIIIIIP!!!!!!
( ‘T.D Visualizer’ by Lil Yachty, Tierra Whack ft. A$AP Rocky, Tyler, The Creator plays as the crowd gives a mixed reaction to Jay Jerry Johnson, who makes his way out to the stage, looking completely focused on the match ahead of him, knowing what’s on the line. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM CHICAGO, ILLINOIS! WEIGHING IN AT 198 POUNDS; ‘CHARISMATIC ARTIST’ JAAAAYYY JEEEERRRRRYYYYYYYY JOOOOOOOOHHHNSOOOOOOOONNN!!!!

Rich Russillo: Yeah, but this is what really matters! This is what Jay challenged Kirk to! This is the big match for the Championship contendership!
( ‘Bad Man’ by Blues Saraceno plays over the sound system last as Kirk Redwood makes his way towards the ring. Kirk Redwood looks directly at Jay Jerry Johnson, knowing just how far their feud has come since their first match on Voltage a while ago. )
Bella Braxton: AAAAAND HIS OPPONENT!! From Boston, Massachusetts! Weighing in at 210 pounds! He is The Bastard Son! HE IS KIIIIIIIRK RED-WOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!
James Peters: On the losing end of a triple threat match last week, Kirk is looking to bounce back in a big way tonight!
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates emerged victorious in a triple threat bout including Sebastian Garcia also. This is Kirk’s opportunity at making it big!
Persephone: Can we start this match already?
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
James Peters: And This Match Is Officially Underway!
Jay Jerry Johnson scores first as he throws the first punch BUT it’s blocked by Kirk Redwood who throws in a punch of his own. This one is also blocked by Jay WHO TRIES TO GO FOR THE PRETTY VISITOR! THE CUTTER AH NO! It’s blocked by Kirk who rolls out of the ring! That one could’ve ended up very quickly! Jay follows Kirk outside the ring throwing in a clothesline BUT Kirk ducks! Redwood with a clothesline of his own is taking down Jay! Kirk grabs hold of his opponent, getting him up then whips Jay INTO THE RING STEPS! HE THEN WHIPS H-
Rich Russillo: LOOK OUT!!
James Peters: KIRK JUST WHIPPED JOHNSON OVER OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! Kirk Redwood just whipped Jay Jerry Johnson over the announcers’ table before moving around it reaching his opponent and start to pummel him! He throws several fists to the face Jay from behind the announce table we are trying to stay out of the way as much as we can folks.
Persephone: Motherfucker you have the WHOLE ARENA to fight! Go ELSEWHERE!!!
Rich Russillo: Redwood doesn’t seem to care about Persephone’s complaints as he gets Jay to a vertical base and flips the man over our table! Johnson lands in front of it as Kirk moves to grabs the steel steps. He walks towards his opponent AND HITS JAY WITH IT ON THE SHOULDERS!! THAT MUST’VE HURT!! A European Uppercut follows Redwood before grabbing hold of Jay Jerry and drags him back towards our table laying him on it!
James Peters: Redwood goes to the apron taking a knee down reaching under the curtain and produces a KENDO STICK FROM UNDER THE RING! Business is about to pick up as Re-
James Peters: HE JUST STRUCK TRIPLE J WITH THE STICK AS THE MAN IS LAID ON THE TABLE!!
James Peters: ANOTHER SHOT TO THE GUT! JAY TRIES TO GET AWAY AND MOVES TO LEAN AGAINST THE RING APRON! Stick strike to the gut of Jay! Kirk struck the pointy edge to the gut then
James Peters: A STRIKE TO THE BACK!! The Kendo stick broke under the force and multitude of hits and Kirk goes to gets a new one!
TWACK!!!! TWACK!!!! TWACK!!!! TWACK!!!! TWACK!!!!
James Peters: KIRK IS STRIKING A STORM AT JAY JERRY JOHNSON THE MAN IS ONLY ABLE TO ENDURE THE ATTACK AS HE IS HOLDING ONTO THE RING APRON! Jay ends up crumbling down on the floor under the assault as Kirk drops the stick! He is taking his sweet time I think he is actually enjoying this as he drags Jay near the barricade, lifts him up BACK BODY DROP ON THE BARRICADE!! Jay is hurting bad and Kirk shoves him inside the ring. Kirk picks up the kendo stick again going inside the ring while Jay rolls outside and crouches under the ring looking for something with haste. He has a Kendo Stick of his own! He is prone, waiting for Kirk who doesn’t know what’s going on apparently! Kirk steps between the ropes. JAY SMACKS HIM IN THE LEGS AND KIRK DROPS DOWN HARD!
Rich Russillo: Jay grabs Kirk by the back of the neck and SHOVES HIM RIGHT AGAINST THE NEARBY RINGPOST!! Jay with the advantage now and goes for a fallaway slam against the barricades! This is a No Disqualification match for the right to face New Eden’s Minerva and the National Elite Championship Folks and those two men are not going easy on each other! Jay focuses on the legs and midsection of Kirk then he wails at Kirk until the man is laid out under his constant kendo stick strikes! COVER BY JAY!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
James Peters: Kirk Redwood Kicks Out!
Rich Russillo: Jay looks up at the official checking on him for a three count but is told it was only two. He shrugs before throwing in a strike a knee to the back of Kirk Redwood followed by a stiff-looking knee to the face! Jay picks up Kirk getting him to a vertical position followed by a series of soccer kicks to the hips and knees of Kirk! Redwood is dazed, down to a knee as Jay goes to the ropes and LANDS ATOP OF REDWOOD WITH A SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY THAT KIRK TURNS INTO A ROLLOUT! BUT JAY KICKS OUT BEFORE THE OFFICIAL COULD MAKE THE COUNT!
James Peters: Jay looks surprised rather than angry as he then throws himself at Kirk striking hard at him with fists! He picks him up before drilling him down with a swinging neck breaker! Jay continues the attack, gets Kirk up, whipping him to the ropes he does the same himself! Clothesline attempt missed by Jay BUT HE GETS HIS MAN WITH A SLING BLADE!! Jay Jerry Johnson is in the driver’s seat now as he rouses the crowd who answers back in their own way! Kirk slowly gets to his knees before moving to his feet, Jay goes to meet him BUT gets a thumb to the eye from Redwood who tries to turn things around! Irish Whip in the corner Jay hits it hard followed by Kirk but Johnson kicks the leg already hurting the leg of Redwood!! Kirk drops down to his back! Jay Jerry Johnson with a standing senton followed by a quick cover!
James Peters: Redwood lifts the shoulder up! The action continues with a headlock by Jay Jerry Johnson on the ground, Kirk on his knees slowly fading but he hits the ground with a closed fist trying to stay into this! Kirk reaches for a kendo stick nearby, trying to hit Jay with it but it’s snatched away by Johnson WHO SMACKS KIRK DOWN WITH IT! Another cover by Triple Jay!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: Kirk keeps his hopes alive with a kick out!
James Peters: Jay looks at the office again! Wanting to make sure it was a two-count and the official confirms much to his dismay! Jay gets up, looking at the stick picking it up as he looks to Kirk Redwood with malicious intent! He sets himself up for a home run swing he wants to wack his opponent like Ohtani or Vlady Junior! A HARD SWING AND A MISS! Kirk ducked and follows with a European Uppercut! Jay quickly throws a kick to the gut and fights back with a DDT!!! COVER BY JOHNSON!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT!! Jay barely believes it!
Persephone: I barely believe it too but that’s because I’m bored!
James Peters: Kirk is dazed as he gets up trying to shake the cobwebs out as Jay looks to the kendo stick, grabs it but then shoves it aside advising against its use. He suddenly charges at Kirk who is standing in a corner BUT Kirk rolls out Jay crashes in the corner face first! Kirk turns his opponent so his back is against the corner then he lifts Jay on the top turnbuckle, he throws a series of quick punches to the face! Whatever Kirk has in mind can’t be good for Jay who tries fighting back with some punches of his own but Kirk goes for a few headbutts that get Jay reeling on the top turnbuckle! Kirk steps up, to the second rope! He Hoists Jay Up! Goes to the third ropes with both feel and LIFTS! BOTH HE AND KIRK LANDS A DEVASTATING SUPERPLEX!!!! KIRK IS HURTING BUT HE GOES TO COVER JAY!

He maneuvers Kirk over the top ropes! Kirk lands to his feet and guillotines Jay as he drops down to the outside floor! Redwood quickly slips back into the ring taking a knee and throwing some palm strikes to the forehead of Jay before going for a guillotine choke! But it doesn’t last as Jay manages to reach the ropes and the official forces, Redwood, to break the hold. Kirk sigh, letting go but doesn’t wait for Jay to get up he grabs him from behind into a crisp and quick snap suplex! He goes for a Tiger Suplex that lands perfectly before moving up to the nearby corner and hike himself on the second rope. He measures up his downed opponent; KNEE DROP RIGHT THROUGH THE HEART OF JOHNSON! Redwood then rolls out of the ring, reaching in to grab at Jay pulling him out of the ring before whipping him into the nearby barricades! BACK BODY DROP AGAIN ON THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE! Another European Uppercut by Kirk followed by grabbing Jay’s head and DRIVE HIS FACE ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE! Jay must be seeing stars right about now as he gets moved towards our table and laid upon it with a backdrop!
Persephone: We’re lucky the fucking thing didn’t break!!
Rich Russillo: Jay Jerry Johnson picks Kirk up and shoves him in the ring before rolling in the ring himself. He sets himself up for his finisher! He is trying to get behind an unsuspecting Redwood with his arms to the sides he is calling for The Jerry Special! But Kirk sees it and rolls out of the ring! Smart move by Redwood but he is followed by Jay in close pursuit! Kirk goes over the barricade through the crowd followed by Jay while Kirk is holding his back in pain and gets punched by Jay!

( DING! DING!! DING!!! )
( ‘Bad Man’ by Blues Saraceno plays over the sound system of the SSE Hydro as Kirk gets his arm raised in victory! )
Bella Braxton: Here Is Your Winner And The Number One Contender For the National Elite Championship; KIRK REDWOOD!!!!!!!
James Peters: What a win tonight for Kirk Redwood! Your new number one contender for the National Elite Championship!
Rich Russillo: Strong showing by Jay Jerry Johnson despite the loss, he will have other opportunities later if he keeps up the good work. But tonight was not his day.
Persephone: Poor Minerva, from facing a “Legend” in Cleopatra at Clash of Kingdoms 2 to facing this guy.
( Kirk Redwood is seen trying to recover as the hurt Jay Jerry Johnson is still unconscious. As Kirk Redwood celebrates a huge victory for himself, Voltage begins to fade away from the area. )
(Voltage cuts to a commercial for Jake Smith’s new sneaker brand “6 ft”, which comes with stilts attached to the sneakers. The commercial shows Hasbulla modeling the shoes as he towers over everyone around him in a terrifying scene.)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break to the inside of the SSE Hydro as immediately, ‘Invincible’ by Pop Smoke blares through the speakers of the arena. The crowd instantly comes alive in thunderous cheers upon seeing Chris Elite make his way out to the stage. He has a grin on his face as he takes the time to hype up the EAW Universe while circling around the stage. He then focuses his attention on what matters, beginning to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring from there.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, introducing at this time… CHRIS ELITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Well, recently Chris Elite has found himself in a tough spot. Having his Tag Team Turmoil partner, Jamie O’Hara, being attacked last week by New Eden at the beginning of the show, Chris didn’t waste any time barging into Captain Charisma’s office and questioning what was going to happen to The Blicky Roos. And while the Voltage Commissioner was happy to redraw from the drawings, instead, Chris demanded that if there was going to be a new partner, he would be the one to choose them.
James Peters: And I can assume that’s exactly why he’s out here tonight, to clear the air and reveal who’s going to be Jamie O’Hara’s replacement in the tournament. Knowing Chris, he’d have chosen the best partner to strengthen his chances at winning and solidify him a Unified Tag Team Championship opportunity. And I think judging by the look on his face, he’s done just that.
Persephone: Please be Rex… please be Rex… please be Rex… please be Rex…
(Chris stops at the bottom of the ramp for a moment, nodding his head before he makes his way around the ring. He takes a microphone from the timekeeper’s area before jumping up onto the apron and entering into the ring. He begins to make his way towards the center of the ring, ‘Invincible’ slowly fading out as he begins to speak from there.)
Chris Elite: Iight look, I’ll be the better man and admit, shit didn’t go to plan for your friendly neighborhood Chris Elite. A lot of shit was meant to go down, and all of that went to literal shit because of a certain dickeating stable that wants to try and ruin every chance I get. I could’ve been guaranteed a Unified Tag Team Championship opportunity by now. Me and Jamie? That was a game changing team and ain’t nobody was gonna come out and tell us otherwise. The Blicky Roos were going to clearly win the whole thing, and that was made evident with the type of competition that we faced in the tournament, fucking Shane Gates & Lucas Johnson :mjlol:. But yeah, now that’s in question because of the injury that Jamie got last week. I shouldn’t even be in this fucking situation, but at this point it doesn’t matter now. Captain Charisma offered to give me a randomized partner, but nah, we all know he was going to pull some bullshit out and give me some bottom of the barrel fucker. So I decided to take it upon myself to find a partner of my own, it’s the least that bozo can do for me when it comes to a situation I had no control over.
Chris Elite: But even then, I’m still in a tough situation. Because there aren’t many great options, atleast, for people that can give me some sort of benefit in this tournament. But ey, I can’t blame them in the slightest, I’m just amazing. But I do need a partner and my best bet is to team with someone that I already got some sort of experience with I guess. Shit, just two weeks ago my team won the entire Brand Warfare match without a sweat, so for the most part that narrows down the options. Let’s run em down real quick. Of course Jamie isn’t an option, Justin is already in a team, heaven forbid I team with Ryan Wilson, which leaves…
(Seemingly on queue, ‘Stop Breathing’ by Midboi Carti plays up to the thunderous boos of the Scotland crowd knowing exactly who this person is. And for the first time since Clash of Kingdoms 2, Jake Smith makes his way out to the stage. He has an arrogant smirk on his face with his arms outstretched. He bears a few scratches and bruises from his EAW World Championship match two weeks prior that are starting to heal up, but nonetheless, he pays no mind to it. He looks around at the crowd for a moment, before looking towards Chris in the ring with a smirk while he makes his way down the ramp and to the ring.)
Rich Russillo: :krabs: Unless Jake is coming out here by pure coincidence, we might’ve just found out Chris’ new partner in the Tag Team Turmoil Tournament! Two weeks ago Jake went through hell in order to obtain the EAW World Championship, and while he was unsuccessful in Kuwait, he did leave a lasting impression and managed to show exactly why he deserves to be in that position for months to come.
James Peters: And it seems Chris has appeared to take notice of that, which I suppose is why Chris had a light bulb moment last week and took a moment to make a phone call, this was the person! Obviously, Jamie is an irreplaceable Elitist, but Jake is definitely a great alternative for someone who needs a partner. He’s held his own this entire Season and would definitely love to sink his teeth into another opportunity to fight for the Unified Tag Team Championships.
Persephone: :comeagain: Didn’t he already have an opportunity? Then he got eliminated by Shorty D and the weird New Eden woman? This is such bullshit it’s unbelievable.
(Jake makes his way up the steel steps, entering into the ring and spreading his arms out as he circles around the ring arrogantly. He snatches a microphone from the timekeeper’s area while he makes his way towards Chris. He opens his arms for a hug, but Chris starts quickly backing up in hopes of avoiding it. Jake shrugs his shoulders as he stands at the center of the stage, holding a microphone in his hands while ‘Stop Breathing begins to fade out from there.)
Crowd: FUCK YOU JAKE! FUCK YOU JAKE! FUCK YOU JAKE! FUCK YOU JAKE!
Jake Smith: Yeah, then you’ll turn around and chant “WE LOUE YE LIMMY!” in your stupid little Scottish accents, I’m so hurt… 🙄… anyways Chris, I’d like to take a moment to say one thing, and one thing only from the bottom of whatevers left of my heart. I appreciate you.
Chris Elite: :comeagain: Did I call the right person? Because I expected you to yell some bullshit my way like a bozo.
Jake Smith: No no no, you have me all twisted! Chris, that was the OLD Jake Smith.
Persephone: Oh brother…
Jake Smith: You see after the horrific injuries I sustained at Clash of Kingdoms 2 in my EAW World Championship match against Drake King, I didn’t know. I sat at home for days pondering everything, because I just didn’t know. I didn’t know my stance, I didn’t know what was next, I didn’t know myself, and most importantly, I didn’t know what I was going to do… I was a wreck even when I said that wasn’t going to be me anymore! But Chris, you changed that for me. You gave me that phone call and you turned the tides of what should’ve been a plummet to rock bottom for someone like me. What was once bleak now is a light in the dark, and I appreciate you for that.
Chris Elite: You’re welcome…?
Jake Smith: And now, even though I lost my EAW World Championship match, my chase for Championship gold isn’t done yet. Now? I have a second opportunity in the Tag Team Turmoil Tournament. I have a second opportunity to validate myself obtaining the Championships that have haunted my career since the very beginning, the Unified Tag Team Championships. And I promise you Chris, I promise you after everything that you’ve done for me, I won’t let you down, frankly, it’s the least I can do. Because I’m not teaming with Holly Arrow anymore who only held down my potential, I’m teaming with you! And because of that, I have absolutely no doubt in my head that we will win the entire tournament. On one condition…
Chris Elite: Sure.
Jake Smith: We call ourselves… The Haircare Kings!
Chris Elite: :wtf:!!! No damn. You know what, I’m just going to stop you right there and pretend I didn’t hear that. But nah, you heard him, nothing changes about my odds in the Tag Team Tournament, I’m still winning the whole damn thing regardless of who my partner is. All of you are getting the smoke and I don’t care who happens to be first. We putting in that work and the only thing you’re going to be seeing, is Chris Elite & Jake Smith as your new Unified Tag Team Champions. That’s a fact.
(Chris drops his microphone as ‘Invincible’ once again plays up. Jake pats Chris’ back before Chris pushes his hand away, they’re not that close. Jake then shrugs his shoulders as both of them raise their arms in the air. It’s the last shot seen before Voltage fades out to elsewhere.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial promoting Marvel’s “What If?…” series finale, now on Disney+.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: One fall!! Introducing first…
(“Primos” starts to play as Sebastian Garcia enters the arena to loud and resounding boos from the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring! He is from Tijuana, Mexico. Weighing in at 225 pounds! He is “THE MAIN ATTRACTION” SEBASTIAN GARCIA!!
James Peters: Sebastian Garcia makes his way to the ring for singles action and the crowd is letting him know exactly what they think of him.
Rich Russillo: He has lived the lavish and high-maintenance lifestyle since the day he was born and he’s come to EAW with the mindset that things just come easier to people who were born plain better than everybody else.
Persephone: Has this snobby prick even won a match here? To make your statement know, you have to do more than just show up. YOU HAVE TO WIN! These rookies need to ask themselves “What would Rex McAllister do?”.
(Sebastian enters the ring, posing to the crowd who is still booing this man as his entrance theme fades. After Sebastian takes his corner looking completely bored as “Forever” by Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, & Eminem starts to play as Kelin enters the arena to a completely different reaction of loud cheers from the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT! MAKING HIS ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING DEBUT! He is from Yoakum, Texas! He weighs in at 218 pounds! He is “THE SHOW STEALER”……..KELIN!
Rich Russillo: For the fans who absolutely hate Sebastian Garcia, they absolutely love this young Elitist who is making his debut here tonight. Listen to the ovation Kelin is getting.
Persephone: Why are they getting so excited about a man they haven’t even seen wrestle yet? These fans are damn sheep, I swear! For all we know, he can’t wrestle for shit.
James Peters: I watched him prepping in the ring earlier today and he is a hell of an athlete. I think that he might open a few eyes tonight in his debut. But Sebastian Garcia is no pushover. If Kelin doesn’t come into this match completely focused, it’s going to be a very long night for him.
(Kelin enters the ring and takes his corner as “Forever” fades away and the referee calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Referee calls for the bell and here we go! Match is underway AND KELIN IS IMMEDIATELY ON THE ATTACK! This young man is making his debut and he is not going to let this opportunity go by. Double leg takedown by Kelin and is laying in the lefts and rights to the skull of Sebastian Garcia.
Rich Russillo: Kelin brings Sebastian back to his feet and whips him into the corner. LOOK AT THOSE KICKS! Look at those martial arts style kicks. To the ribs! A final kick to the face before he snapmares Garcia out of the corner. Kelin with a flipping neck snap sending Sebastian back down to the canvas.
Persephone: This match has just started and I am already bored! If this Kelin kid finishes the match like right now, maybe just MAYBE he might find himself on my tolerable side. Doubtful but it gives the kid something to shoot for. The kid drops an elbow as he goes for a quick cover. Why?
James Peters: I would say the same thing because Sebastian Garcia kicks out even before the count of one. Kelin brings Garcia back to his feet and whips him into the ropes, but Garcia counters. Kelin rebounds and he counters with a beautiful headscissor takeover. Garcia stumbles back to his feet as Kelin delivers a dropkick to the face of Sebastian. Garcia fumbles through the ropes and he is on the floor.
Rich Russillo: Kelin hyping himself up as he hits the far ropes. Kelin rebounds and runs across the ring at full speed. KELIN WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE SENDING SEBASTIAN CRASHING BACK TO THE FLOOR! GREAT MOVE BY THE ROOKIE!
Persephone: Why is the crowd getting so excited for this new kid? He isn’t that special! My Rexy could do all of these moves and so much better. Now the new kid is bringing the other guy back up and rolls him back into the ring. Now he goes for the cover in this horrible match up.
James Peters: GARCIA POWERS OUT BEFORE TWO! Sebastian Garcia showing some great tenacity early on in this match up, but it is Kelin who has the advantage. Kelin brings Garcia back to his feet and whips him to the turnbuckle. Kelin with the charge and it’s Garcia with an elbow to the face. Kelin ducks the Garcia clothesline and jumps to the top turnbuckle. Kelin looking to fly once again…
Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S SEBASTIAN WITH THE COUNTER! He hits the top rope and causes Kelin to lose his balance and land crotch first on the top turnbuckle. That isn’t going to feel good in the morning.
Persephone: He isn’t hurting anything he uses, so he’s fine. But the other guy, Sebastian or whatever looks like he’s setting up New Guy for a move that he will most likely screw up.
James Peters: Not quite! LOOK AT THE POWER OF SEBASTIAN GARCIA! GARCIA WITH A MILITARY PRESS FROM THE CORNER! NOW HE’S JUST LIFTING KELIN UP AND DOWN REPEATEDLY LIKE A WEIGHT BAR!!
Persephone: He’s just showing off now. Don’t get too cocky. You can still screw something up. Who does he think he is? My Rexy? Like that will ever happen. But it looks like he’s done showing off and he drops new guy Kelin person down with the Gorilla Press Slam. Big Whoop!
Rich Russillo: The crowd might share the same feeling as you for once because they are booing Sebastian Garcia out of the building, but Garcia doesn’t care. Both men are pretty much equal in terms of height and weight give or take a few pounds and inches, but seeing something like that is an amazing feat of power. SEBASTIAN JUST SHOWED HE CAN FLY TOO WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! GARCIA GOES FOR THE COVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!
James Peters: KELIN KICKS OUT AT TWO AND GARCIA DIDN’T LIKE THAT TOO MUCH. NOW HE’S JUST POUNDING HIS FISTS INTO THE SIDE OF THE SKULL OF KELIN! The Referee is doing whatever he can to get Sebastian to open the fist.
Referee: (off-mic) OPEN THE FIST, SEBASTIAN! OPEN IT NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI—
Rich Russillo: Garcia opened the fist, but he is glaring a hole right through the referee. From the rich lifestyle, he isn’t used to being told no. So instead, he is blatantly choking Kelin in front of the referee. WHAT IS HIS PROBLEM?
Referee: (off-mic) LET GO OF THE CHOKE! YOU BETTER LISTEN TO ME OR I WILL DISQUALIFY YOUR ASS! BREAK IT NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV-
Persephone: :mjlol: Clearly this referee doesn’t realize that this is Voltage. If anything, these two should be allowed to bring a weapon into the ring without issue.
James Peters: Look at the attitude of Sebastian Garcia showing through here tonight. He wants to play the spoiler and ruin Kelin’s EAW Debut. He really doesn’t care about anything or anyone but himself. Garcia is done soaking in the reaction from the crowd once again as he goes to drop the elbow.
Rich Russillo: KELIN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND ALL GARCIA FOUND WAS CANVAS! Garcia holds his elbow and KELIN CATCHES HIM IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A DROPKICK! KELIN GRABS THE ARM OF GARCIA AND HE SPINS INTO A MAGISTRAL CRADLE. SHOULDERS ARE DOWN FOR GARCIA!
Persephone: Mr. Cocky Pants kicks out. Dumbass showboat too damn much and he almost got caught. That’s what he gets! Only Rexy can do stuff like that and get away with it! Now the new guy is grabbing the legs of Cocky Pants and drags him to the corner.
James Peters: We thought he was going for a Boston Crab, but instead, Kelin falls back and slingshots Garcia into the turnbuckles, BUT GARCIA CATCHES HIMSELF BY HOPPING ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES! CREATIVE COUNTER!! GARCIA SITS HIMSELF ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE BUT KELIN COMES BACK WITH A SAVATE KICK TO THE JAW OF SEBASTIAN GARCIA!!
Rich Russillo: Sebastian about knocked backwards off the top turnbuckle, but he manages to keep his balance. He’s trying to shake the cobwebs out as KELIN JUMPS ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLES AND DELIVERS A HURRICANRANA FROM THE TOP ROPE! WHAT AMAZING ATHLETICISM FROM THE ROOKIE! GARCIA TURNED INSIDE OUT FROM THAT MOVE!
Persephone: It looked like the new kid was going to go for a pin but the other guy managed to roll to the apron. I guess there might be a small fragment of a brain in that head of his.
James Peters: Garcia needed a breather, but Kelin is hot on his heels. Kelin is looking for a suplex and reaches over the ropes, but Sebastian grabs Kelin by the head and hotshots him throat first on the top rope. Kelin stumbles back as Garcia gets back into the ring. Garcia kicks Kelin in the gut and hoists him up. Garcia looking for a brainbuster, but Kelin countered.
Rich Russillo: HOLD ON! GARCIA HOLD ONTO KELIN’S NECK AND COUNTERS THE COUNTER WITH A NECKBREAKER! Kelin is down and Sebastian is going for the cover.
James Peters: KELIN KICKS OUT AGAIN! SUCH DETERMINATION BEING SHOWN BY KELIN SO FAR IN THIS MATCH! Sebastian does not look happy that he has not been able to put away Kelin thus far in the match up.
Persephone: I am not surprised. The match just began and I know all the people on this damn roster love to drag shit out as long as possible so I highly doubt this match will end anytime soon. Damn it all.
Rich Russillo: The wrestlers on Voltage always know how to provide a good show every week, so these two will be no different. Sebastian Garcia brings Kelin back to his feet just to slam him back down. Garcia hits the ropes and jumps. GARCIA GOING FOR A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!
James Peters: KNEES UP! KELIN GETS THE KNEES UP AND SEBASTIAN IS HOLDING HIS RIBS IN PAIN! Kelin is back up to this feet going behind Sebastian and HE PLANTS HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! SEBASTIAN WITH AN UGLY LANDING ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!
Rich Russillo: Kelin with kicks to the midsection of Sebastian Garcia. Continuous kicks until Sebastian is in the corner. Kelin brings him up and Sebastian slaps him in the face.
Persephone: Such strong fighters we have in this match that we have to resort to slapping? Why not just make this match interesting and throw some weapons in there and get some bloodshed. Make this match at least a little more exciting for me. Anyways, Sebastian went for a clothesline and Kelin avoided it. Big shocker there!
James Peters: Kelin with another kick to the midsection as he jumps onto the shoulders of Sebastian Garcia. What is Kelin going for? I SEE NOW! KELIN IS ATTEMPTING THE POISONRANA!
Rich Russillo: BUT SEBASTIAN COUNTERS BY SIMPLY FALLING BACK! ELECTRIC CHAIR COUNTER! SEBASTIAN HOLDS ONTO THE LEGS AND BRIDGES UP INTO A PINFALL! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
James Peters: KELIN GETS THE SHOULDER UP! HE WENT FOR A RISKY MOVE AND IT ALMOST BACKFIRED! THANKFULLY HE HAD THE WELL AWARE TO KICK OUT!
Persephone: Why is this match still going on? If he wouldn’t have kicked out, this would be over and I can go back to messaging my Rexy. But Sebastian brings Kelin up to his feet and whips him into the ropes. Kelin rebounds and looks to go for a headscissor takeover once again, BUT INSTEAD HE TILT A WHIRLS HIMSELF AND PLANTS SEBASTIAN WITH A MODIFIED DDT! GARCIA SPIKED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! LOOK AT KELIN HYPING UP THE CROWD AND THE FANS ARE GETTING BEHIND THIS YOUNG ELITIST!
Rich Russillo: Sebastian Garcia has made it back to his feet and Kelin takes him back down with a clothesline. Garcia back up again and Kelin takes him back down again with a second clothesline. Garcia back up yet one more time and this time Kelin takes him back down with a Discus Clothesline. KELIN IS IN ON FIRE!! KELIN NOW PUTTING SEBASTIAN UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION! KELIN HOISTS HIM WITH NICE STRENGTH AND LOBS HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!! THE DREADED BUCKLE BOMB CONNECTS!
James Peters: Sebastian landed hard and the back of his neck and head took some damage as he stumbles right out of the corner on spaghetti legs. KELIN WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK RIGHT ON THE JAW! GARCIA DOWN AND HE MIGHT BE OUT COLD. KELIN HOOKS THE LEG! WILL THIS BE OVER HERE AND NOW?
Rich Russillo: GARCIA KICKS OUT!! I DON’T BELIEVE IT!! I THOUGHT THAT THIS MATCH WAS SURELY OVER WITH THAT COMBINATION OF MOVES! THESE TWO MEN TONIGHT ARE PUTTING ON A HELL OF A MATCH! TWO ELITISTS TRYING TO MAKE BIG NAMES FOR THEMSELVES HERE TONIGHT!
Persephone: Yeah. Two more people who are going to be very annoying on this roster. That’s all we need. Now Kelin goes for Sebastian and Sebastian pulls him tights first into the ropes. Hahaha! Seeing his throat hit the ropes was absolutely hilarious.
James Peters: It’s not very appropriate, but it was effective in catching Kelin off guard as Sebastian Garcia now jumps onto the shoulders of Kelin. GARCIA FLIPS BACK AND NAILS A POISONRANA OF HIS OWN!! IT DID NOT WORK FOR KELIN BUT IT SURE AS HELL DID FOR SEBASTIAN! KELIN SPIKED ON HIS HEAD AND SEBASTIAN GOES FOR THE COVER! WILL SEBASTIAN GARCIA FULFILL BEING THE SPOILER FOR KELIN?
Persephone: Kelin kicked out?! Why the fuck would he do that for? This could have been over but of course this match still goes on and my misery continues. If you two are going to keep spiking each other on your heads, MAKE SURE YOU FINISH THE JOB!! DUMBASSES!
Rich Russillo: KELIN WANTS TO IMPRESS AS MANY PEOPLE AS HE CAN IN HIS DEBUT MATCH THAT’S WHY! WITH KICKOUTS LIKE THAT, HE IS MOST DEFINITELY GETTING NOTICED TONIGHT! YOU CAN SAY THE SAME FOR SEBASTIAN GARCIA WHO IS COMPLETE DISBELIEF THAT THE POISONRANA DIDN’T FINISH OFF KELIN! Sebastian goes for another cover and hooks the leg, but Kelin kicks out at one! SEBASTIAN GOES FOR A THIRD COVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS THIS TIME! ONCE AGAIN KELIN KICKS OUT AT ONE!
James Peters: Now look at Sebastian Garcia! He is so frustrated to the point that he looks completely pissed off! Sebastian is pounding his fists into the canvas, almost throwing a fit in the middle of the ring. Sebastian Garcia makes it back to his feet and he just yelled to the crowd that this match is over! GARCIA IS MOTIONING FOR KELIN TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET!
Rich Russillo: KELIN BACK TO HIS FEET AND GARCIA IS LOOKING TO FINISH HIM OFF FOR GOOD! GARCIA HANDSPRINGS TO THE ROPES AND HE IS LOOKING FOR THE MIDA’S TOUCH! GARCIA GOING FOR THE HANDSPRING CUTTER AND IF HE HITS IT, HE WILL FIND THE GOLD OF VICTORY! HE IS GOING TO GET IT!
James Peters: NO HE DOESN’T!! KELIN CAUGHT HIM FROM BEHIND! THIS MATCH WILL NOT EXPERIENCE THE MIDAS TOUCH AS KELIN IS NOW GOING FOR A BACK SUPLEX COUNTER! WAIT! HE LIFTS HIM FOR THE BACK SUPLEX, BUT HE SWITCHES THE SUPLEX MID MOVE INTO THE DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! THAT’S THE KRASH LANDING! KELIN HITS THE KRASH LANDING AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT SEBASTIAN GARCIA EXPERIENCED WITH A CRASH AND BURN LANDING! GARCIA ISN’T MOVING AS KELIN GOES FOR THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Forever” starts playing again as Kelin rolls off of Sebastian as the crowd cheers their approval.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… KEEEELLIINNNNNN!!!!!
James Peters: What a match!! Two young Voltage Elitists showed exactly what they could do when given the chance and it was the rookie Kelin who takes home the win in his EAW Debut.
Persephone: Great. Another loser here that isn’t Rex McAllister. I’m glad this match is over and we can get one match closer to ending this show.
(The referee raises the hand of Kelin as the crowd continues to cheer and he exits the ring.)
Rich Russillo: Sebastian Garcia worked hard in this match and almost had it won on a number of occasions, but it was Kelin who pulled through and picks up the W tonight on Voltage.
(Sebastian finally sits up and looks disappointed as Kelin smiles at the top of the ramp proud of his victory as the camera cuts elsewhere.)
(As Sunday Night Voltage continues on, the scene opens up to the backstage setting of Voltage’s Commissioner’s office and viewers can see that the room is currently populated by none other than Captain Charisma himself, as well as Justin Windgate, Chris Elite, Jake Smith, and Ryan Wilson. Standing before the four Elitists with a welcoming grin on his face, Captain Charisma addresses Territorial Invasion’s Brand Warfare team.)
Captain Charisma: I’m glad that I was able to round you all up for this – my announcements for you all in light of a post-Territorial Invasion and Clash of Kingdoms would’ve come last week, but as you all know, things got carried away with New Eden with their attack on Jamie. I’d say that one should be surprised, honestly, because we all know how they operate and for them to open their mouths to say that I somehow intentionally set them up to fail was just nothing but them failing to hold themselves accountable for just not being good enough – and they decided to take their bruised egos and hurt feelings out on Jamie. I plan on seeing to it that they will be dealt with for good for what they did because this is ABSOLUTELY something they’re not getting away with, I assure everyone of that – but just as much, I was always planning to see to it that the Brand Warfare team was rewarded. It’s unfortunate that we can’t have Jamie here considering that he was the one leading our winning Brand Warfare team, but it’s not like I can put this off just for him when you all deserve to see what your efforts have gotten you.
Captain Charisma: While Jamie was the leader, it goes without saying that the Brand Warfare Match at Territorial Invasion was a team effort. It couldn’t have been accomplished without all of you and your contributions – seeing Voltage come out on top was something that made me proud to have everyone know what kind of competitors that Sunday Night Voltage is housing here. You all went above and beyond-
Chris Elite: But you’re most proud of me, right? After all, some of these other bozos in here went and got their asses eliminated in the same match.
Justin Windgate: I shouldn’t be surprised that you’re having to go and make this all about you, Chris, even though you weren’t the only one left standing at the end of it all. I contributed with a big elimination of my own before you, me, and Jamie all helped in getting the last elimination of the match so that we could win the match. Believe it or not, not everything is solely about you sometimes.
Ryan Wilson: Plus, I still helped and got us an elimination in the process :wtf:!!
Jake Smith: And is this really how you’re gonna talk about me when I’m your partner in Tag Team Turmoil now :skip:?!
Justin Windgate: The only reason you’re even his partner now is that Malcolm kept declining Chris’ calls. :mjlol:
Ryan Wilson: :mjlol:
Chris Elite: Stop laughing! That shit isn’t funny at all, but you’re always the one to go talking shit when no one even asked you to say anything in the first place, fucking junkie. Like I wouldn’t kick your ass and drop you right where you stand. And I don’t know why you’re laughing, Ryan, because it seemed like everyone BUT you seemed to know you weren’t gonna last long as New Breed Champion – congrats on your first and last title win though, a shocker you ever even won a Championship at all.
(The three of them devolve into arguing among themselves, Jake crossing his arms as he gets in on the arguing himself but with Chris Elite, who has his back to him, over whether Chris pointing out that he and Ryan having both been eliminated from the Brand Warfare Match was some kind of slight Chris hadn’t really thought to consider. Captain Charisma hurries over and deescalates the situation as fast as he can, trying all by himself to keep them separated with Jake being of no help whatsoever to assist in controlling his Tag Team Turmoil partner. It takes a moment of shouting over them from Captain Charisma to remind them they’re all here for a reason, and that slowly but surely defuses the bickering happening between the four men.)
Captain Charisma: If we could continue on without any more interruptions or arguing, that’d be greatly appreciated, especially because I can promise you right now that this is something that you’re ALL going to want to hear!
(All of them trying to get a last word in at each other fades out to grumbling and low mumbles that eventually come to cease, but not without some side-eyeing from Chris to Justin and Ryan while Jake just shakes his head; all of them coming to some sort of silent agreement that they need to get on with the meeting so that they can find out why they were called to Captain Charisma’s office in the first place.)
Captain Charisma: As I said, while it’d be great to have the full team here to announce this, I’m not going to deprive you four of being able to celebrate and be properly rewarded for your amazing victory. That said, I’m awarding all four of you with individual opportunities to have a match of your own choosing that you’re all allowed to pick in any way that you all see fit. It’s completely up to each one of you as to how you decide to use this chance, and I’m looking forward to seeing how you all decide to capitalize on this!
Chris Elite: :notbad:
Justin Windgate: :whew:!!!
Jake Smith: :blessed:!!!
Ryan Wilson: :oh:!!! I’ll be honest, I was wondering how I’d have to go making my next opportunity since losing the New Breed Championship. It’d have certainly been no problem for me to go making yet another opportunity happen for myself, after I showed what I’m capable of when I went out and earned my chance to be a part of the Brand Warfare team once I convinced Jamie to let me have the chance at getting on what I knew would be the winning side-
Jake Smith: More like you went and forced your way onto the team just because Jamie wanted to shut you up and get you off his back about it :mjpls:
Justin Windgate: :sas2:
Ryan Wilson: And it clearly worked out for the best seeing as how I scored an elimination for us, so you’re all welcome for that :wow:!!! But CC, when you say that the choice is ours for us to have ANY match that we want, you mean we can have ANY match that we want? And you won’t try to impede in any way at all? You know, being a former General Manager myself, I just want to make sure that I – and everyone else here – understand the extent of the opportunity that we’re all getting here.
Captain Charisma: I meant exactly what I said. I’m leaving the choices completely all up to the four of you, though I expect to be told at a reasonable time whenever any of you come to a conclusion on the match that’s being picked.
Jake Smith: After Clash of Kingdoms and how close I know I came to winning there when everyone saw me give Drake the fight of his life to point where he went as far as setting his own damn foot on fire when he put me down, this is definitely one hell of a way for me to get back up on my feet and look ahead to what I could have in my future. There’s a lot of possibilities here with this and I’m sure as hell not about to go ruling anything out, but I’ll definitely think this one over and really weigh my options.
Chris Elite: I’ve been ready to get another opportunity. Being on the winning Brand Warfare team and stepping up there just proved it for anyone who wanted to think that they could try to go dragging my name through the mud like I’m not about everything I say I am when it comes to showing that I’m still the best getting in that ring no matter who I’m up against. Not one person has changed that – not anyone who wanted to doubt me going into Brand Warfare, not anyone who doubted me before or even now after it – and it’s not about to go happening now, when I’m as sure of being able to make good on any chance I get as I’ve ever been.
Justin Windgate: And after something Bloodsport and with this Tag Team Turmoil still going on, I know this is my chance to show there’s plenty more for everyone else to anticipate coming from me. This definitely just shows all the work I’m doing isn’t going overlooked after that huge EAW Championship match and everyone else is going to want to make sure they’re taking of that just the same.
(Jake, Chris, Justin, and Ryan all appear to be pleased with the reward that they were just given, and it seems that already they are all considering ideas for their future match-ups. However, none of them seem quite ready to be set on anything just yet and they all thank Captain Charisma, accompanied with promises of letting him know when any of them are ready to come forward with their desired match, as they all then proceed to make their way out of the office. The door closes behind them and Captain Charisma nods to himself, pleased with how that worked out. He turns to his desk and goes to retrieve his phone, just when he hears a knock at the door. It opens up just as he looks to see who it is and a smile appears back on his face as it’s Donovan Duke who comes walking in, the 24/7 Contract holder appearing just as pleased to be in the Commissioner’s presence.)
Donovan Duke: You wanted to see me?
Captain Charisma: I did! I wanted to talk to you about your performance at Territorial Invasion in the Divide & Conquer Match; you did in not only getting an elimination out there to whittle down the opposing team but went on to win the whole thing against Alex Myers once you were the only two remaining in the entire match! Your effort and determination to rise here on Voltage has not gone unnoticed by anyone, and I think I speak for plenty of people when I say that you’re surely going to go on to accomplish a whole lot more if you keep going the way that you are. I’m extremely happy to have you as a part of my roster, just as much as I am that you were able to bring that win at Territorial Invasion with you back to Voltage – but it’s for that victory that I believe you should be rewarded with some kind of opportunity.
Donovan Duke: I thought winning the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain for Pride was big, then Territorial Invasion came along to add onto it, and now this?! I know I’ve already got plenty to be proud of, but I’m certainly not about to go turning down a chance at whatever it might be that you’ve got in mind; I’d say I’m working with the hot hand here, and I’m all for pressing my luck. You can hit me with whatever you’ve got and I’ll absolutely be sure to go knocking it out the park.
(Captain Charisma can’t help but be pleased with Donovan’s eagerness to go taking on any challenge that’s put in front of him, as Donovan has shown plenty of potential to succeed and make something out of the opportunity he has with the 24/7 Contract.)
Captain Charisma: Well, I know that you’ve still got the 24/7 Contract and as far as that goes here, this isn’t about that. You’re free to keep that and hold onto it until whenever and wherever you decide to use it; consider it something of an insurance policy to have in your back pocket. Beyond that, though, as I’m sure you know, Holly Arrow was given the chance to take on Ms. Extreme for the Universal Women’s Championship come October 24th; two weeks from now she’ll have the opportunity of a lifetime to find herself at the top of the women’s division as she takes on one of the best Elitists that EAW has.
Donovan Duke: I mean, that’s great for her and all, she earned it for sure after winning the women’s Divide & Conquer Match at Clash of Kingdoms – but besides being the sole survivors of our respective Divide & Conquer Matches, I’m not sure what her opportunity has to do with me.
Captain Charisma: On October 24th, while she’ll be competing for the Universal Women’s Championship, you’re going to be competing against Drake King for the EAW World Championship that very same night!
(Donovan Duke is almost in an excited state of disbelief, but clearly excited nonetheless to have such a big opportunity coming his way and all while not having to use his Contract. Knowing that it was work ethic that led him to victory at Territorial Invasion and ultimately to this shot at the EAW World Championship, Donovan couldn’t be more pleased with himself for bringing himself to this kind of big moment in his career.)
Donovan Duke: You know, Captain Charisma, thank you so much! I wasn’t expecting this at all to come out of winning at Territorial Invasion, but this is something that you – and Drake King now, when he finds out – can definitely expect me to be looking forward to in the weeks ahead! I wasn’t going to rest on this Contract of mine and just sit back quietly while not putting in any work, and I can see that it’s definitely paying off. Rest assured that that’s going to end up being the same case when it comes to this EAW World Championship match, because I’m not thinking of letting up for a second. I might otherwise be gambling with my chances of winning my first World Championship against someone like Drake King, but you know what? When it comes to knocking Drake down and out, I like them anyway! You’re definitely not gonna regret this decision, and with what I’m gonna be setting out to do and accomplish with this kind of opportunity, I’m sure I’m not gonna regret it either.
(Donovan extends his hand to Captain Charisma and the two of them shake hands, with Donovan being persistent with his thanks as the Voltage Commissioner pats him on the shoulder. Donovan goes to exit from the office, thanking Captain Charisma one last time before making his way out the door. On the sight of Captain Charisma’s grinning face, no doubt satisfied with how these last two meetings have gone, the scene fades out.)
( Voltage returns and cuts down to the ringside area. Inside the ring, Bella Braxton is seen standing by with a microphone in her hand. Always the professional, Bella enjoys doing her job, however she just can’t contain the sheer excitement she has for this upcoming bout. )
Bella Braxton: Okay, wow….
( Bella literally has to compose herself. She can’t even. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
( “If You Smell” by Adam Massare begins to blast across the PA system and immediately the sold-out crowd inside the SSE Hyrdo shoot to their feet. They are shaking and crying because that theme music belongs to one man and one man only… )
Bella Braxton: :mjcry: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA… WEIGHING IN AT A PERFECT 260 POUNDS… HE IS THE LIVING LEGEND… THE WOOGIEMAN!!!!! :mjcry: :mjcry: :mjcry:
( The Woogieman walks onto the stage and is greeted with nothing but love and adoration from the Scottish fans. It’s a treat to see The Woogieman in the ring these days, and they know they’re lucky. The Woogieman dramatically pauses on the stage and raises an eyebrow, before grinning and making his way down to the ring. )
Persephone: Oh give me a fucking break.
Rich Russillo: ???? Do you hear the disrespect in your voice right now, Seph? How can you not be caught up in the absolute pandemonium that is going on right now? The Woogieman, the legend, the fucking most charasmatic individual to ever grace this company is about to get into the ring and bless us.
James Peters: Bless us is the best way to describe what this match means to everyone around the world. The Woogieman is a generational talent and someone who comes along only once in a lifetime. There is no one who can captive a crowd like The Woogieman, and I feel fucking excited that we are going to see him wrestle tonight against an up and coming talent like Rebecca Blackwell.
Persephone: The sad part is you two dumb cunts are serious.
( Rich and James are serious, and there is no way anyone can deny the type of reaction The Woogieman gets. When he gets into the ring and gets ready for the match, the crowd only gets more hype. When his theme music fades out, the cheers don’t stop. “Taste (Make it Shake)” by Aitch begins to blast across the PA system and the UK’s own Rebeca Blackwell steps out from behind the guerilla curtain. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM LONGDON, ENGLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 123 POUNDS… SHE’S THE ‘GAIJIN GODDESS’ REBECCA BLACKWELL!!!!
( Rebecca gets her fair share of love as well. It’s pretty obvious that the crowd is hype for this match. )
Rich Russillo: If there’s anyone in EAW who can possibly take The Woogieman to his limit, it is Rebecca Blackwell. Despite being a rookie in EAW, Rebecca has a ton of experience inside the ring having competed all over the world, and she’s already started to make waves here. For the last couple of weeks, Rebecca, and her tag team partner, Mary S. Atlas, have been going back and forth with Dynasty’s Lisa Wren and Kensi. The animosity between the two teams stems from an attack orchestrated by IDOL-GUN that resulted in Mary and Rebecca injuring Lisa Wren. Since then, Lisa and Kensi have been out for blood, while Mary and Rebecca have just been trying to live their best life.
James Peters: I couldn’t have summed that up any better myself, Rich. Mary and Rebecca have not backed down from anyone since coming together. It was just last week that Mary put her eyes on that Specialists Championship Miku Sakai currently holds, and Rebecca got right in the face of Cleopatra!
Persephone: Sounds like both of them have a death wish, and once they die, that’s two less people I have to watch wrestle. Sounds good to me.
( Rebecca is in the ring now, and she’s taken off her ring jacket. She signals to the referee that she is ready, and the referee turns to check with Woogie. He also nods and that is all the confirmation the referee needs. He calls for the bell. )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
James Peters: There’s the bell and our two Voltage Elitists immediately lock up! It’s obvious the Woogie has a huge size and strength advantage, but I’m not going to underestimate Rebecca’s skill set or her tenacity. I know she’s a fighter and I know she’s not going to let someone like The Woogieman bully her inside that ring.
Rich Russillo: Right now, Woogie has Rebecca pressed against the ropes, but the referee has to call for a break. Woogie does the right thing, but there’s a slap to his face by Rebecca! Woogie looks absolutely furious that Rebecca would have the gall to slap him and he swings at her, looking to connect with a right hand!
Persephone: Rebecca ducks the shot, slips behind Woogie, and pushes him against the ropes! He bounces off and Rebecca looks to roll him up, but Woogie is quickly back to his feet! He runs the ropes, and comes flying at Rebecca but she drops down, causing Woogie to miss with a clothesline! Rebecca is back up and she greets Woogie with a dropkick from behind! Woogie nearly falls to the mat, and that prompts Rebecca to clip him in the back of the knee! Woogie drops and Rebecca hits the ropes, rebounding with a beautiful running knee strike to the back of Woogie’s head! She quickly throws Woogie onto his back and goes for the cover!!! IT’S OVER!!!
James Peters: NO! WOOGIE KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: It’s going to take so much more than a running knee to put someone like The Woogieman down for a three count! Rebecca snatches him into a headlock, looking to keep him grounded, but listen to this crowd! They are urging Woogie to get up and keep it going. He is feeding off the energy of the crowd, and I love it. He works his way back to his feet, nails Rebecca in the gut with an elbow, and frees himself! Woogie hits the ropes and takes Rebecca down with a clothesline! She’s back up almost immediately but there’s another clothesline! Rebecca isn’t about to stay down though! She’s up again and there’s a third clothesline! Woogie follows that up with a leg drop, and he hooks the leg for a cover!
James Peters: Rebecca kicks out!
Rich Russillo: Woogie pulls Rebecca up and Irish whips her into the corner! Rebecca slams back first against the turnbuckles, and Woogie with a running corner clothesline that violently snaps Rebecca’s head back! Woogie is lighting her up now! Rebecca covers up, trying to defend herself against this onslaught, but it’s no use! Woogie catches her with a brutal forearm to the jaw, plants his foot in her mid-section, and stomps her down into a sitting position! Woogie runs around the run and Rebecca eats a nasty looking knee that crushes her head against the turnbuckles!
James Peters: Woogie drags Rebecca from the corner, gets a running start, and there’s a running swinging neckbreaker! Woogie with another cover on Rebecca!!!!
Persephone: Stay down, damn.
Rich Russillo: Rebecca kicks out!
The Woogieman: :francis:
Rich Russillo: Woogie pulls Rebecca up and sends her into the ropes! He catches Rebecca off the rebound, and lifts her up! WOOGIE IS GOING FOR THE SPINEBUSTER!!!
James Peters: BUT REBECCA IS DETERMINED TO DENY HIM! REBECCA FIRES OFF SHOT AFTER SHOT TO WOOGIE’S HEAD AND FACE, AND HE FINALLY SITS HER BACK DOWN ON THE GROUND! REBECCA WITH A DROPKICK, AND WOOGIE FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES! SHE CATCHES WOOGIE AS HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES WITH A STEP-UP ENZIGURI!!!
Rich Russillo: REBECCA PULLS WOOGIE UP AND THROWS HIM INTO THE CORNER! ‘FROM LONDON, WITH LOVE’! THE SPINNING BACKFIST CONNECTS! REBECCA IS FEELING IT NOW! THE CROWD IS CHEERING ON BOTH COMPETITORS! A RUNNING CUTTER PLANTS WOOGIE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! REBECCA SCURRIES TO THE TOP ROPE, AND THERE’S ‘JUST A DROP’!!! THE FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH CONNECTS ON WOOGIE AND REBECCA HAS THE COVER!!!!
James Peters: THE WOOGIEMAN WITH AN ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE KICK OUT! HOLY SHIT! THAT WAS AMAZING!
Rich Russillo: Everything about The Woogieman is amazing :wow:
Persephone: I call bullshit.
James Peters: Rebecca looks frustrated that she wasn’t able to put Woogie away with that flurry of offense, but now is not the time for her to dwell. Woogie is stirring, and I think Rebecca senses that letting Woogie back into this match could be a mistake. She hits the ropes and nails the sitting Woogie with a basement style dropkick! Woogie is flat on his back right now, but Rebecca elects not to go for the cover! Instead, she grabs Woogie’s legs and locks him up in a figure four! Rebecca is looking to tap out The Woogieman!
Persephone: Alright. Let’s not drag it out now. Go ahead and tap out, Woogie. Let’s go ahead and put this match to bed :wow:
Rich Russillo: Woogie is flailing his arms and trying to escape, and it seems like his best bet is to reverse this move! He towers over Rebecca and a reversal should be easy!
James Peters: You would think that, but right now the adrenaline is coursing through Rebecca Blackwell’s veins. She’s determined to hang on to this figure four and she is fighting every single attempt Woogie makes to reverse this! The crowd wants this match to continue so they’re obviously on Woogie’s side at this moment, and he is twisting his body, desperately trying to break the hold.
Rich Russillo: Rebecca is hanging on for dear life at the moment, and Woogie gives one final jerk to the left and there it is! WOOGIE HAS THE REVERSAL! REBECCA HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO LET GO AND SHE QUICKLY UNTANGLES HER LEGS FROM WOOGIE’S! REBECCA AND WOOGIE CRAWL TOWARDS OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE RING AND BOTH ARE BACK UP! WOOGIE IS FAVORING HIS KNEE BUT HE BRAVELY MOTIONS FOR REBECCA TO BRING! REBECCA DOESN’T HAVE TO BE TOLD TWICE! SHE FLIES AT WOOGIE AND THESE TWO ARE THROWING HANDS! BOTH THE WOOGIEMAN AND REBECCA BLACKWELL ARE SLUGGING IT OUT, AND IT’S REBECCA WHO MANAGES TO GET THE UPPERHAND IN THIS EXCHANGE! SHE KICKS THE KNEE OF THE WOOGIEMAN AND NAILS HIM WITH A BEAUTIFUL EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!
Persephone: WOOGIE IS ABSOLUTELY ROCKED RIGHT NOW AND REBECCA BRINGS HIM DOWN WITH A BEAUTIFUL DROP TOE HOLD! WOOGIE IS DOWN AND THERE’S ‘RBS’!!! REBECCA HAS THE CROSSFACE LOCKED IN AND NOW WOOGIE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO TAP! TAP! TAP! TAP! LET’S FUCKING END THIS SHIT RIGHT NOW!
James Peters: WOOGIE IS NOT ABOUT TO TAP OUT NOW! HE JUST SURVIVED ONE BRUTAL SUBMISSION HOLD AND HE IS DETERMINED TO SURVIVE THIS! REBECCA BLACKWELL HAS THIS FIRMLY LOCKED IN, BUT WOOGIE IS DIGGING DEEP AND TRYING TO DRAG THEM BOTH TO THE ROPES! HE IS SO STRONG! SO BIG! SO DETERMINED! REBECCA MIGHT BE A LITTLE OUTMATCHED RIGHT HERE, BUT TO HER CREDIT, SHE IS STANDING HER GROUND. WOOGIE REACHES FOR THE ROPES, BUT HE’S STILL SHORT! REBECCA CRANKS BACK ON HIS NECK, AND WOOGIE LETS HIS HAND DROP!
Persephone: CHECK HIM REFEREE! THE WOOGIEMAN MIGHT BE OUT!
Rich Russillo: :lupe: I hope that The Woogieman isn’t out. This has been such a competitive match so far and I would hate to see it end right now.
Persephone: Speak for your fucking self. Since Rex left, I seriously hate this fucking job.
James Peters: :mjlol:
Rebecca Blackwell: (off-mic) Check him, ref! I think he’s done!
Rich Russillo: The referee is down there now checking on Woogie :lupe:. His hand just dropped for a second time, and if it hits that mat again, this match is over.
( The crowd holds its collective breath as the referee lifts Woogie’s hand up for a third time and lets it drop. )
James Peters: HE’S ALIVE! HE’S ALIVE! THE WOOGIEMAN IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! THIS CROWD JUST CAME UNGLUED! WOOGIE BALLS HIS HAND INTO A FIST AND HE IS FEEDING OFF THE CROWD! REBECCA’S EYES ARE PRACTICALLY BULGING OUT OF HER HEAD! SHE CAN’T BELIEVE THE WOOGIEMAN IS STILL ALIVE! SHE DESPERATELY WRENCHES BACK ON WOOGIE’S NECK BUT HE SHOWS AN INHUMANE SENSE OF STRENGTH AND LUNGES FOR THE ROPES!!!!
Referee: ALRIGHT! BREAK THE HOLD!
Rich Russillo: REBECCA IS REFUSING TO RELEASE THE CROSSFACE! SHE WANTS THIS WIN! SHE WANTS TO MAIM HER OPPONENT! SHE WANTS TO SEND ONE HELL OF A MESSAGE TO LISA, KENSI, AND CLEOPATRA RIGHT NOW!
Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…
James Peters: Rebecca has no choice but to let go of ‘RBS’, and you can see the emotion on her face. She is pissed that Woogieman is still in this match and has a fighting chance. But one thing Rebecca can’t do is let her feelings overwhelm her. Woogieman is hurting right now and Rebecca needs to lock in and finish this thing off.
Persephone: Yes, for the love of Gawd, let’s finish this shit off right now.
Rich Russillo: Rebecca drags Woogie away from the ropes and makes sure he is positioned perfectly in the center of the ring. She drops a few stomps to that injured knee, and she’s heading to the top. Rebecca pats her elbow, signaling that she’s about to put the final nail in Woogie’s coffin with her diving elbow drop finisher!
James Peters: Rebecca takes to the skies, and there’s ‘BLACKWELL’S END’!!! THE DIVING ELBOW DROP CONN-
Rich Russillo: NO! IT DOESN’T CONNECT! WOOGIE ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AND REBECCA’S ELBOW SLAMMED INTO THE CANVAS! REBECCA IS HOLDING HER ELBOW AND WOOGIE HAS PULLED HIMSELF UP USING THE ROPES! MAN! THE BRAVERY OF THE WOOGIEMAN IS SO FUCKING ADMIRABLE! HE IS BASICALLY ON ONE LEG AND HE IS HOBBLING TOWARDS REBECCA BLACKWELL! WOOGIE STOMPS DOWN ON REBECCA’S ARM A FEW TIMES DESPITE THE OBVIOUS PAIN HE’S IN! HE GRABS HER UP, AND HOOKS THAT ARM AROUND THE ROPES! WOOGIE IS PULLING ON IT, CAUSING REBECCA A TON OF DISCOMFORT! THE REFEREE HAS TO REPRIMAND THE WOOGIEMAN, AND HE LETS REBECCA GO! REBECCA SINKS TO THE CANVAS, CLUTCHING HER ARM, AND WOOGIE WITH A BIG BOOT!!! REBECCA IS SPRAWLED OUT ON THE MAT AND WOOGIE DROPS DOWN FOR A COVER!!!
James Peters: REBECCA KICKS OUT! WOOGIE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE ARM AND HE’S LOOKING FOR AN ARMBAR! REBECCA HAS ENOUGH LEFT IN THE TANK TO START KICKING THE HOLY LIVING HELL OUT OF THE WOOGIEMAN, AND HE FINALLY HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO LET HER GO! REBECCA QUICKLY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE, LOOKING TO REGROUP!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT WOOGIE IS NOT PLAYING AROUND! HE SEES REBECCA TAKING A MOMENT TO CATCH HER BREATH AND CHECK HER ARM, AND HE FLIES FORWARD!!! TOPE CON HILO OVER THE TOP ROPE! SDASJDALSKD HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Persephone: WHAT A FUCKING IDIOT! REBECCA MOVES AND WOOGIE COMPLETELY MISSES! WOOGIE IS DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE AND HE’S ROLLING AROUND, GRIPPING HIS BACK! REBECCA SEES THE CHANCE TO DO SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE AND SHE IS STOMPING THE HELL OUT WOOGIE! SHE IS ABSOLUTELY DESTROYING HIM RIGHT NOW! WOOGIE’S BACK IS TAKING THE FULL BRUNT OF THOSE STOMPS! REBECCA FINALLY RELENTS BUT SHE’S PULLING WOOGIE TO HIS FEET! SHE WHIPS HIM INTO THE BARRICADES AND WOOGIE SLAMS AGAINST THEM, SLUMPING TO THE GROUND! REBECCA FOLLOWS UP WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE THAT CATCHES WOOGIE FLUSH ACROSS THE JAW! I THINK THAT KNOCKED HIS STUPID ASS SILLY!
James Peters: Perhaps, but this match is not going to be won on the outside. Rebecca has to get all 260-pounds of The Woogieman back inside the ring so she can end this match!
Rich Russillo: Rebecca no doubt knows that and she is using up every bit of fortitude she has left to drag Woogie towards the ring. I have no fucking clue how she’s doing what she’s doing, but I guess the sheer will to win can drive a person to do almost anything! Rebecca finally has The Woogieman back inside the ring, and she goes right for the top rope!
Persephone: Well I hope the dumb bitch doesn’t miss this time…
James Peters: Despite injuring her elbow, Rebecca gets set on the top rope!
Rich Russillo: ‘BLACKWELL’S END’!!!! THE FLYING ELBOW DROP!!! SHE LANDS IT RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE WOOGIEMAN’S CHEST BUT THAT MIGHT HAVE HURT REBECCA JUST AS MUCH AS IT HURT WOOGIE!
Persephone: Serves the dumb cunt right, but she’s crawling over Woogie now and she is able to grab his leg!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… REBECCA BLACKWELL!!!
( However, it’s not Rebecca Blackwell’s theme music that begins to play. Instead it’s ‘Age-Age Money’ by LADYBABY which plays up to the crowd’s boos mostly, with a smattering of cheers. Rebecca sits up and looks towards the stage with a exasperated look on her face just in time to see Miku Sakai make her way out to the stage with the Specialists Championship being raised high in the air. She’s being carried out to the ring by a bunch of simps on a throne.)
Persephone: FOR FUCKS SAKE! Just when I think this stupid match is going to be over, here this little anorexic bitch comes out acting like she’s above everyone else. I HAVE IMPORTANT BUSINESS TO ATTEND TO!
Rich Russillo: Well I think we know exactly why she’s out here tonight. Last week Miku’s interview with Molly Waters was interrupted by Mary S. Atlas who seemed to have been looking to stake her claim for the Specialists Championship. That left a bad taste in the mouth of Miku and of course, she’s taking the chance as it goes to put her in her place.
James Peters: In the most royal way possible of course, interrupting the celebration of Rebecca all to show them exactly where she believes their place is, like those simps carrying her throne. I’m sure Mary has taken notice more than anyone else though, she’s already slid into the ring, helping Rebecca up and mostly focusing her attention on Miku.
(The simps with their malnourished bodies seem to be struggling to make it down to the ring, as the most weight that they’re used to carrying is binoculars for spying on Miku. Suddenly a few collapse. Miku rolls her eyes, and directs them to make a body staircase so she can walk down. They oblige, and Miku gets to the ring, but before she makes her way in, she directs the simps to again make some human stairs for her. A few oblige, as one follows her, to hold the ring rope down, so she can get into the ring as easily as possible. Miku gets in the ring and scans the arena proudly, as Specialists Champion, before focusing on Mary inside of the ring. ‘Age-Age Money’ then begins to fade out from there as Miku is given a microphone by a simp which she puts to her lips, and starts to moan)
Miku Sakai: Ooooh. Yeah.. You like that? Mmmmmm, so fuckin good..
(A few simps pass out with little bulges in their pants, and a sticky wet spot. Miku glares at them and rolls her eyes)
Miku Sakai: Ugh disgusting. That’s all it takes to get the attention of a crowd, but that’s just the power that your Specialists Champion Miku Sakai holds baby. Everyone knows the name Miku Sakai at this point, and if you decide to lie and say you don’t.. Then you’re just a fool. And why you would willingly choose to live your life, and be looked at in such a way, I have no idea. I mean for what? To try and belittle me? Dumb, just fucking dumb, and I can’t respect anyone who can’t accept the truth. I literally am the Specialists Champion, and that fact alone should mean that everyone should know my name. And if a co-worker doesn’t’ know who I am, then they’re just bad at their job. Clearly I’m talking about a dumb skank that barely classifies as an Elitist, Rebecca Blackwell. The dumb bitch that was the first girl pinned, and she’s saying she doesn’t know my name?
(While Miku wasn’t directly speaking to them the entire time, looking towards the crowd and the simps instead of actually focusing on them, she turns her head and looks at Rebecca.)
Miku Sakai: Apologies but that speaks volumes as to why you’ll never be a success here in the company. I can look you right in the eye and tell you that you don’t mean shit. You’re just dirt on my Gucci’s! I can scrape you off, and just flick you away and no one would even notice that you were any inconvenience at all. So, to be so bold, to be such a dumb fucking whore to comitt career suicide, by saying you don’t know the Speicalists Champions name.. Future Tag Team of the Year award winner, future Rookie of the Year.. you don’t know my name? That shows that you’re bad at your job..
(Miku shakes her head, while both members of Marybecca look in disbelief over what she’s saying right now.)
Miku Sakai: You know? I noticed last week that your little friend was eyeing me up and down. At first I thought she wanted to bury her face in my pussy, as it is a look that I get on a regular basis.. But then I noticed, her eyes were making their way to my championship. People sure do think highly of themselves when they have shown no sort of promise huh? That’s your girl Rebecca.. That’s YOUR Girl, and I would like to ask, do you think she deserves a shot at this title? Or.. Do you? See as far as I’m concerned Mary S Atlas can keep dreaming, because I’m the one that calls the shots, and quite frankly I just want to beat the shit out of you now Rebecca. So as far as i’m concerned, congrats Rebecca I’m giving you the first crack at it. I want to make sure you know who the fuck I am seeing as you seemed so confused earlier. Maybe lay off the crack pipe, and you could actually know your surroundings, and maybe you could become a big star like me someday.. I don’t know, maybe I’ll fuck around and make you famous..
(Rebecca makes her way over to the timekeeper’s area and snatches a microphone before she immediately begins to speak.)
Rebecca Blackwell: Really? That’s all it took? Look I’m sorry that I didn’t remember your name, but it’s obvious to everyone that HIkari was the real star of the team. Your win against Bethany was clearly nothing but pure luck, and involved a ton of ridiculous fuckery. But If you want to give me a chance at becoming the champion though, and make the biggest mistake of your career.. I’ll take it. I do hope that you continue the tradition that Bethany brought back by picking a different stipulation for each match..
(Miku clearly is getting annoyed)
Miku Sakai: The stipulation is the least of my concerns right now. All you need to worry about is opening your fucking eyes, and see how things work around here. I came into this company with all the hype in the world. Someone that came from another walk of life, and everyone wanted me to fail.. Or succeed. There was no in between, everyone wanted something to happen whether good or bad, they were invested. And with that hype, a lot of people would have faltered. A lot of people would’ve crumbled under the pressure, and wouldn’t be able to live up to the noise. But you know what? I did. But yet people still don’t care, even though tag team of two people must work in order to get the titles and be considered the best TAG TEAM in the world. All the while, paparazzi, fans, simps, obsessed individuals who’s dream it is just for me to notice that they fucking exist, barge into my life and make everything around me chaotic. A lesser Woman wouldn’t have had been able to stand a chance from the getgo.. But I’m built different, I was able to overcome, and still do til this day. Any show that EAW asks me to be at, I’m there. Any appearance they want me at, I’m there. I pull double duty quite regularly, because I am a featured person in EAW, and I haven’t even been here a year. I have been a champion in EAW longer than I haven’t been. Do you understand what that takes? No, you don’t; because you’ve never even been able to sniff a title, let alone touch one. You don’t get to make shit up, you don’t get to discredit me, you don’t get to create a false narrative when the facts are standing right fucking in front of you. You’ve had just as many chances as I have to make any sort of a dent in this company, and you’ve failed, and failed, and failed.. And now I’m throwing you a bone. I’m extending the olive branch, and giving you sustenance in order to SURVIVE here. But it’s just a feeding tube, eventually we’re going to have to pull the plug on this experiment, and watch you pass away. You agree to facing me, you agree to your own demise.. And I guarantee, we will hear no more cute remarks such as.. “the other one who’s name I forgot”.. Out of you.
(Miku reels back and hocks a loogie right in the face of Rebecca)
James Peters: Oh no Rebecca didn’t like that! She takes a swing at Miku, and slaps her right across the face! Before tackling her down, and mounting her raining down rights to her face! But Miku is able to counter, and now she’s the one in control, punching Rebecca right in the face, over, and over again! But Rebecca is able to get her legs under Miku, and flip Miku over head, as she rolls out of the ring!
Persephone: This dumb bitch spit? How fucking vile, but .. I don’t know anything that happens to the face of Rebecca Blackwell is an improvement. Maybe Miku thought that stupid black strip thing under her eye was an invitation.. Simple mistake possibly.
Rich Russillo: Rebecca tries following Miku out of the ring, but as she straddles the ropes, Miku jumps back up and uppercuts the ropes, sending that rope right into.. Uh, her lady bits..
Persephone: HER PUSSY! IT’S HER PUSSY YOU PUSSY!
Rich Russillo: I don’t feel comfortable saying those things! But yes right in her genitals! And Rebecca is down, and Miku seems to be back in full control! Oh wait who is that!! Mary! It’s Mary S Atlas, she comes from behind and throws Miku off of Rebecca. Mary picks up Rebecca, and the two of them now focus on Miku. Miku has her hands up.. What’s this?? Miku offers a handshake?? Rebecca and Mary just laugh, and throw Miku right into those steel steps!
James Peters: These two are sending Miku a message here. Rebecca bends down and picks up the Specialists Championship, indicating that she believes that she’s going to be the next Specialists Champion!
Persephone: Yeah she showed Miku! Now if only her partner could fight all her battles for her, she would be undefeated! The sky is the limit!!
James Peters: We will be right back after this commercial break!
(Voltage fades to a promotional ad for Wicked Games, where the Tag Team Turmoil Tournament finals are scheduled to take place.)
( Voltage fades back in from break and cuts to the backstage area. A pretty annoyed Shane Gates is seen sitting in the catering area. He is drinking water and furiously texting someone on his phone. Clearly he doesn’t like being stuck in catering tonight especially after he won his match last week against Kirk Redwood and Sebastian Garcia. A few precious seconds pass and someone walks up to Shane and taps him on the shoulder. Shane looks up and narrows his eyes, seeing Captain Charisma’s assistant, Stacy, standing behind him. )
Shane Gates: What the hell do you want?
( If Stacy is fazed by Shane’s rudeness, she doesn’t show it. Instead she flashes him a huge, albeit professional smile. )
Stacy: Good day, Mr. Gates. Security has informed me that a woman named Elizabeth was caught trying to get into the building to talk to you about Lizzie.
( Shane immediately shoots to his feet. )
Shane Gates: Send her away. I don’t want to talk to her. The fact she would stalk me to another country is completely insane.
Stacy: I was told to tell you that she can help you get rid of Lizzie once and for all.
( Shane is clearly agitated at this point. He wants nothing more than for that doll to be out of his life for good. However, that doesn’t mean he’s willing to talk to Elizabeth about it. Shane doesn’t exactly buy the bullshit she was selling him about that doll and the so-called history it has with her family. It just seemed way to horror movie-ish so to speak. )
Shane Gates: Elizabeth is clearly full of shit, and I can handle that doll if I need too. I have everything under control. In fact, why don’t you take a little message back to your boss for me.
( At this, Stacy raises an eyebrow. )
Shane Gates: You tell Captain Chumpstain that it’s absolute fucking bullshit that a man I beat last week in Kirk Redwood got a National Elite Championship contendership match. It’s even more infuriating that he won that match and is going to get to take on Minerva in a couple of weeks. How the hell does that happen, Stacy? How does someone who was BEATEN get picked for a championship shot over the person who BEAT him?? Shit makes no sense, and I’m not going to stand for it. Either I get a National Elite Championship or I will make sure Kirk Redwood doesn’t make it to the match. It’s really that fucking simple.
( Before Stacy can reply, melodious laughter can be heard off camera. Shane’s head whips in the opposite direction and before too long, the National Elite Champion herself strolls into the scene. Minerva is dressed to compete, seeing as how her match against Lucas Johnson is next, and she wears the belt Shane wants a shot at so bad on her shoulder. She looks down at the belt and then over at Shane, and runs her tongue across her blood red lips. )
Minerva: Is it really that fucking simple, though?
( Minerva is clearly mocking Shane, which doesn’t really sit well with him. )
Minerva: Absolutely NOTHING is simple when it comes to stepping inside the ring against me, and the task becomes more difficult once something I hold is on the line. While this title represents nothing but the lust and greed that plagues this roster, it is something that I am holding near and dear to me because I know that people like you are gunning for it. Do you really believe in your heart that you deserve a chance to compete for this championship? Answer honestly, Shane, because I’ll know if you’re lying.
( Minerva’s icy blue eyes bore into Shane, but to his credit, he didn’t flinch. He didn’t back down. Instead, he squared his shoulder, rose to his full height which would tower over most competitors such as Jake Smith, and he looked at Minerva. )
Shane Gates: I’m my own biggest critic when it comes to my in-ring performances, but if there is something I can honestly say is that I’m a hard worker. I give everything I have to each match I compete in, and even if the chips don’t fall my way sometimes, I pick myself up and I keep trying. I’ll never say that I am the most deserving person on the roster when it comes to competing for the National Elite Championship, I sure as fuck deserve a shot more than Kirk Redwood does. Last week, he failed to put me away.
Minerva: And you put Sebastian away, Shane. You didn’t pin Kirk Redwood’s shoulders to the mat. You took the easy route when it came to winning that match. Far be it for me to criticize your efforts. I’m not exactly a saint of a competitor myself, but I do find it highly amusing that you believe you are any more deserving than Kirk Redwood happens to be. Your case would be stronger if you had actually put him away last week. That being said, who am I to deny anyone a shot at this championship? The more reminders I’m able to send to the rest of the roster that they don’t want to come sniffing around my championship, the more I can hope to get my point across to the thick-headed individuals we unfortunately share a lockerroom with. So if you want a shot so bad, you got it.
( Shane stares at Minerva for a second, his face completely blank. He wants to make sure he actually heard her words correctly. )
Shane Gates: You’re serious?
( Minerva lets out a rather bored sigh and twirls the black rose Myles had given her earlier in the day between her fingers. She playfully bops Shane on the nose with it. )
Minerva: Did I stutter, Shane?
( Annoyed that he got swatted with a rose, Shane scoffed. )
Shane Gates: Surely there’s a catch.
( Minerva shook her head, her bright orange locks flowing around her shoulders. )
Minerva: No catch. If nothing else, I’m just making this match harder for myself. You like to take the easy road, and all you would have to do is pin Kirk Redwood to win your first championship in the land of Elite. How much easier can it get?
( Shane thinks about this for a moment. The way Minerva spoke about the potential triple match for the National Elite Championship made it sound extremely tempting. In fact, she made it seem like winning a champion was simple. Then Shane recalled her words from earlier. )
Shane Gates: You said there is nothing simple about stepping into the ring with Minerva.
Minerva: Oh believe me, there’s not, but what if I told you I would step aside and let you and Kirk have a go at one another for the first three minutes of the match?
Shane Gates: :comeagain:
Minerva: You heard me. I’ll give you a shot at the National Elite Championship and I will allow you and Kirk the chance to beat one another for it. If you both fail to win within the first three minutes, then I’ll jump in, put on a clinic, and make sure neither of you get a shot at this belt again.
Shane Gates: You are absolutely crazy. What the fuck kind of champion does that?
( An unsettling smile crosses Minerva’s face. )
Minerva: A champion who wants to see two people slaughter one another for a prize they’re not good enough to beat her for.
( Never one to back down from a challenge, Shane nods his head. )
Shane Gates: You just set yourself up to look a fucking moron, but I’ll gladly take the chance to compete for the National Elite Championship. I’m not sure what game you’re playing, but you will lose. And I won’t need three minutes to put Kirk away either.
( Minerva replies with a simple shrug of her pale shoulder. )
Minerva: You couldn’t even do it in ten minutes last week.
( Minerva goes to bop Shane on the nose again, but this time he rips the rose from her hands and tosses it to the ground. Minerva throws her head back and laughs, and walks off pretty full of herself. )
( Shane isn’t left alone for long, though. )
???: BORK! BORK! BORK!
( Holly Arrow’s dog, Josh, races into the scene. )
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK!
Voice: (off-screen) THERE YOU ARE!
( Holly Arrow walks up and Josh, who is running around Shane’s legs in a crazed fashion, stops and wags his tag. He then rushes to Holly, who scoops him up in her arms and nuzzles her cheek against his soft fur. )
Holly Arrow: Found you. We have to keep you away from that evil man. You can’t go running off like that.
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK! BORK!
( For whatever reason, Josh’s annoying ass bark seems to irritate Shane. Can’t ever imagine why! Shane turns and glares at Holly. )
Shane Gates: You should put a muzzle on that mangy ass beast.
( Josh looks at Shane and lets out a little growl. )
Holly Arrow: You should probably shut up because you’re upsetting him.
Shane Gates: You know what? I don’t have time for this shit. I’ve got a National Elite Championship match to prepare for.
Holly Arrow: :mjlol: Imagine thinking you’re going to win that.
Shane Gates: :mjlol: Imagine thinking you’re going to win the Universal Women’s Championship.
Holly Arrow: Oh I’m definitely taking Ms. Extreme’s title and tonight when I beat her boyfriend, the EAW World Champion, she’s going to see first hand EXACTLY what I’m capable of doing.
( Shane’s not even in the mood. He rolls his eyes and stalks off, leaving Holly Arrow standing with Josh. As Shane disappears, a cold air permeates through the catering area, and Holly actually shivers. )
Holly Arrow: That’s really weird…
( She looks around, almost as if she feels someone is watching her, but she quickly shrugs it off. However, Josh is shaking and clearly something has him spooked. Holly whispers to the dog, but Josh whimpers. )
Holly Arrow: Poor baby. Let’s get out of here.
( Holly quickly hurries off, still feeling a bit unsettled, and once she disappears the camera catches the briefest of movements. )
( Lizzie the doll appears! The doll has definitely seen better days but there’s something completely haunting about the look on its face… )
( And with that, Voltage fades to ringside. )
(The broadcast then fades back to ringside as we see Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone up to her lips, ready to address the Scottish audience once more in the night!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled… FOR ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(‘Ready To Die’ by The Notorious B.I.G hits the speakers as Lucas Johnson walks down the ramp with a mission, something to prove, with his mouth guard hanging out of his mouth; biting it to stop it from dropping against the ground. He poses on the top of the stage, before he starts to continue walking. Usually the crowd is mixed, but considering they know his opponent, a small orchestra of cheers is heard for ‘The Best Kept Secret’ of EAW.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… weighing in at 210 pounds… hailing from LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK… LUUUCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS JOOOOOOHNSOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
James Peters: And here comes the self-proclaimed Emperor of Violence, looking to prove it as a fact as he takes on the National Elite Champion! At the start of this week he mentioned that he would knock Minerva’s lights out, making her suffer the biggest humiliation of her life, which is a bold statement – yet a real one, as he’s showing a lot of self awareness here. He hasn’t been the most successful this or the last season, nor has he been the most loved. But one thing he knows is that he’s a fantastic FIGHTER, his strikes are deadly, and his moves leave people on the ground whenever he gets the chance… when he puts his mind to it, which he does here, Lucas is a threat. Whether or not Minerva agrees is a totally different story, but Lucas would definitely think of himself as such!
(Lucas Johnson stops at the metal rump of the walkway, as a local authority from the state athletic commission, who traveled all the way to be here with him, starts to put vaseline on his face in order to prevent swelling and cuts from coming up on his face, at least as it remains that is. He places his hands in his palms, as he checks the tape around his hands and wrists for any weapons or something to assist him. He does the same for the kneepads, before Lucas climbs up onto the apron and enters the ring. He climbs to the middle rope, and poses.)
(As Lucas’ theme fades out, it would be replaced by the sounds of Gypsy Chants, Symbols and Cimbaloms before the riff of ‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie starts to echo through the speakers. A lone spotlight is shown where Minerva is stood on the stage, joined by New Eden stablemate Myles, holding the Cash in The Vault briefcase – rather carelessly – alongside Minerva’s championship. She drags her finger across his very muscular chest, before the two start to walk down the ramp together, as the crowd boos their very existence.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… hailing from The Florida Everglades… weighing in at 122 pounds… MIIIIIIIIINEEEEEEEEEEEEERVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Rich Russillo: Even though you wouldn’t know it as she doesn’t care for it, neither does Myles, here comes the National Elite Champion, Minerva! For once I did research 💅 and she calls Lucas the biggest bust in this company’s history… something that may not be a surprise to a lot of people. I don’t expect everyone to agree, but she certainly has a point! Missed opportunities, a lot of losses… almost as if he was Voltage’s very own Limmy Monaghan, who these fans seem to love now as if we didn’t see him try to murder a woman alongside Donovan Duke a few months ago on that very stage. Either way, Minerva looks to quote-on-quote put that career out of it’s misery… and of all people to be able to do that, it would be Minerva… I wouldn’t be surprised whatsoever.
(Minerva and Myles stop at the ramp, before they give Lucas Johnson a stare that could rain bullets through anyone. They lean in for a kiss, before Minerva climbs up onto the apron and enters the ring, going to the turnbuckle and leaning in a seated position, as she takes off her hat and licks her lips – a smirk on her face. She looks across at Lucas, who’s shadow boxing, as her theme fades out, and the bell gets ready to ring…)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And we are underway! Minerva and Lucas Johnson circle the ring as they go for a lock-up right away! Minerva attempts to push Lucas Johnson back into the ropes, but he plants his hips and makes sure he’s unable to be overpowered! Lucas transitions into a headlock, but that was a mistake as Minerva is now able to push him back because of the transition! Minerva throws him off the ropes- but Lucas tightens the headlock and drags her to a knee! The headlock gets even tighter due to the angle she’s tilted at!
Persephone: :wow: Lucas Johnson is boring and Minerva is anti-Rex so I couldn’t care about this match and boring headlocks. Furthermore, proving my point, Minerva pulls the leg before locking in a waistlock on the mat, and places her knee on the bridge of the shoulders… aka, BOOOOORINNNGGGG!!! Minerva and Lucas Johnson didn’t give me high expectations and somehow are starting to go even below that… Thank God that Lucas is actually trying to fight out of it, but chances are he’ll go straight back into… yep! Front Chancery, or whatever that stupid hold is… They stand up, hopefully into better moves.
Rich Russillo: And that you may get, as Lucas Johnson places the shoulder over his head and goes for the Brainbuster- but Minerva slips out of it! She goes for another headlock, but Lucas quickly connects with a back suplex- No! Punch to the head from Minerva, before she starts to gouge the eyes of her opponent! That’s illegal, surely the referee has to step in to help Lucas Johnson here, or else Minerva is going to straight up rip an eye out of the socket! Trust me, I know from experience performing a move like that; it’s brutal!
Referee: One! Two! Three! Four! Break it up, aye! Cannae be doin’ that.
Myles: (off-mic) :dahell:
James Peters: Minerva removes her hands from Lucas Johnson’s eyes due to the Scottish referee shouting at her in a barely-audible accent, before she kicks him directly in the knee! He drops down onto all fours, before she hits the ropes and goes for a quick Scissor Kick- yet Lucas Johnson slips behind and goes for an O’Connor Roll, transitioning into a cover!
James Peters: But Minerva instantly kicks out, the roll up wasn’t enough to keep her down in the slightest and I presume Lucas Johnson knew this would be the case, as he’s immediately back up to his feet as he goes for an uppercut right to Minerva’s chin- only for her to pull her head back! She quickly tries to take him down for the ‘Owl of Minerva’ Cattle Mutilation, but he too manages to counter!
Persephone: If only that counter was something like ripping her nose off, instead he hits a jawbreaker to Minerva as she stumbles back, before he scurries back to his feet, and runs straight in her direction before going for a mediocre, should-be barbed wire clothesline-
Rich Russillo: But Minerva catches it with the inside of her arm before twisting out… and connects with a swinging neckbreaker straight into the middle of the ring! Lucas instantly bounces up and holds onto that neck, before Minerva slides in and goes for the Cattle Mutilation once more! The both of them start to struggle for power, but good news for Lucas is he’s winning! Minerva and his arms shake, before he manages to break the grip and elbows her in the jaw! He recovers back to his feet- But it’s not enough! Running STO spikes him on his shoulders!
James Peters: Lucas Johnson falls, but Minerva rises – rolling back to her feet – as she heads straight to the corner! She begins to scrape her foot against the mat in a similar way to a serial killer scratching their knives :lupe: as she waits for Lucas to get back up onto his feet, seemingly, waving to call for him, and as he does so…. BAM! ‘THE DEVIL’S TOUCH’ SUPERKICK, WITH A RUN UP, RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! MINERVA SHOOTS THE HALF AS IT COULD ALL BE OVER ALREADY, BEFORE SHE PLACES HER ARM UNDER THE LEG TO COVER!
Rich Russillo: BUT LUCAS JOHNSON POWERS OUT! Using his strength, he pushes the shoulder off the ground, and simultaneously pushes Minerva’s back in order to escape! Lucas rolls to the ropes, and Minerva looks to capitalize on this! Crawling back up to her feet, she walks over to where Lucas is despite being told not to by our unintelligible referee, before standing on the ropes… What’s Minerva planning to do here? …Oh! Stomp to the chest of Lucas, before she goes to the throat and rubs the boot in!
James Peters: A disrespectful tactic from Minerva, if not effective even if I disagree with it; cutting off the breathing so Lucas’ next few move attempts are more tolling, or if SHE gets the next few? They’ll definitely be hard to recover from! So overall this is a great tactic from the National Elite Champion, despite the legality, but of course, she’s forced to break!
Persephone: :noah: Just as I was about to witness the perishing of a homosapien on national television! God was about to get a new friend and I was about to watch someone get sent there via choking! Scottish referees suck at doing their job!
James Peters: :lupe: I’m concerned because all of that was wrong, but we’ll move past that! Minerva quickly grabs Lucas Johnson by his hair, and drags him away from the ropes; perhaps she’s looking for another move that could end the match, given that she’s grabbed ahold of his head instead of something like his arm; that’d be easier to get him up, but she’s looking to make a smooth transition right into… ‘TWILIGHT’!!!! INVERTED FACELOCK ELBOW DROP, TURNING 180 DEGREES BUT INSTEAD OF TO THE CHEST IT’S TO THE HEAD! TRANSITIONING FROM THE CHOKE INTO THAT, SHE COVERS!
Rich Russillo: BUT LUCAS IS ABLE TO KICK OUT ONCE AGAIN! Minerva’s ‘Twilight’ wasn’t enough to keep him down! And for this, Minerva once again goes for the Cattle Mutilation- yet Lucas rolls out of the way before she can even try it! Though, he’s unable to push himself off his chest as he remains held onto his throat! Minerva grabs him by the head and looks to hit him harder than Persephone wishes she could hit me, with another one of those uppercuts, this time one of her own, to Lucas Johnson’s chin! And it connects!
James Peters: But as he takes the uppercut to the jaw he spins out of it and hits one of his own! Both of these Elitists stumble back after taking the same move, before they usher in an attempt at a clothesline! Somehow, they’re on the same page, and it connects at the *same* time! Minerva goes for the legs as she lifts for a Spinebuster-
Rich Russillo: ‘THE BLUEPRINT’!!! THE CUTTER OUT OF NOWHERE FROM LUCAS JOHNSON, TWISTING IN THE AIR, AND MINERVA LANDS HEAD FIRST INTO THE MAT! LUCAS JOHNSON ALMOST KILLED HER WITH THAT, AND NOW HE COVERS HER!
Myles: (off-mic) :drakelike:
James Peters: But a kick out from Minerva! She rolls over to the side of the ring, as Lucas sits up and holds onto his jaw – most likely bruising up – before he rolls back to his feet! Lucas quickly hits a running shooting star onto Minerva, before rolling over to her and bouncing up to the turnbuckles, hitting a slingshot imploding splash! Minerva instantly holds onto her stomach due to the move’s connection, before Lucas rolls her back to the center of the ring for another move, more than likely hitting an even more dangerous one!
Rich Russillo: Very much like Minerva, Lucas Johnson begins to scrape his foot on the ground to mock her, as he starts to hype himself up! For the first time in a while, he has full crowd support behind him as he charges for a follow up – maybe a finish!
Persephone: Yet, again, it’s nothing hardcore. At least have it be something that sends her head flying off into the middle row so I can see someone die! Lucas Johnson charges forward and… :notbad: Shining Wizard into the back of her head, maybe a concussion is close enough to a death!
James Peters: Minerva drops to the ground after the inside of Lucas Johnson’s knee collides with her skull, but somehow he’s not done with her! That COULD have been enough if that move landed correctly in the correct space, but even then he doesn’t go for the finish, he grabs her by the hair and pulls her up to her feet! He hooks her arms before scooping the leg… FOR THE FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER!!! THE KILLSWITCH CONNECTS AS HE DRIVES HER HEAD-FIRST ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME WITHOUT ANY MEANS OF PROTECTION, SHE HAS TO BE OUT OF IT HERE! COVER!
Rich Russillo: NO! Again, the kick out! Escaping the near-inevitable doom, she manages to pop the shoulder up! She manages to escape! Lucas Johnson rolls away ever so slightly, before kneeling over her, as he unleashes some forearms right to the jaw! Minerva is barely able to move despite the kick out, as these forearms are ear-numbingly loud, so just imagine how they feel! Sounds like what I’d love my bedroom to sound like at a sleepover night with Persephone!
Persephone: Of course, Rex is invited.
Rich Russillo: No! 👍😃👍
James Peters: Lucas Johnson continues these forearms, until Minerva’s head tilts against the ground! Then? He lifts her up, up onto her feet, so he can do more damage! Forearm to the jaw! Another! A third! The more hits she takes, the dizzier, sicklier she gets…
Rich Russillo: The pain and blurred vision is definitely the cause of that, and Lucas won’t give up! He chops her right in the head, before hitting a huge jumping knee! Middle kick, before he drops down and sweeps the leg-
James Peters: No! Minerva jumps over it, before backsliding him to the ground!!! The cover!
Myles: (off-mic) :francis:
James Peters: KICK-OUT! LUCAS USES HIS HANDS TO PUSH HIMSELF OFF THE MAT, AND ONTO HIS KNEES, BUT IT’S NOT MET WITH FREEDOM AS HE GETS HIT WITH A HUGE SCISSORS KICK THAT SLAMS HIS HEAD RIGHT UP AGAINST THE MAT! LUCAS JOHNSON MUST BE OUT OF IT, COMPLETELY KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS!
Rich Russillo: BUT IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH MINERVA PLACES HER BOOT UNDERNEATH HIS JAW AND QUICKLY FLINGS HIS HEAD RIGHT BACK UP AND KICKS HIM WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! HIS HEAD SWINGS TO THE SIDE, BEFORE SHE HITS ANOTHER SUPERKICK TO THE HEAD, SWINGING IT TO THE OTHER SIDE!
James Peters: MINERVA GRABS ONTO HIS HEAD AND PLACES HIS ARM OVER HER SHOULDER, BEFORE SLOWLY DEADLIFTING HIM OFF THE GROUND AS SHE GOES FOR THE TWISTING BRAINBUSTER THAT HAS ENDED SO MANY ELITISTS PRIOR TO THIS MATCH, AND IF IT CONNECTS IT COULD BE THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN… BUT HE ESCAPES! HE SLIPS DOWN BEHIND HER ONCE AGAIN, BEFORE GOING FOR THE BACK SUPLEX HE ATTEMPTED EARLIER… AND DROPS HER WITH THE KNEE STRIKE RIGHT UP AGAINST THE JAW!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA FALLS BACKWARD INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH THAT BEING THE ONLY THING THAT CAN KEEP HER STOOD ON HER FEET, AND NOW, LUCAS LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE! HE RUNS FORWARD AND HITS ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE, THIS TIME WITH HER BEING STUCK IN THE CORNER TO ASSIST! HE GRABS HER BY THE WRIST BEFORE PULLING HER IN FOR A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE… BAM! IT CONNECTS! MINERVA DROPS DOWN ONTO HER SHOULDERS YET HE KEEPS AHOLD OF THE WRIST, PERHAPS EN ROUTE TO ENDING THIS MATCH ALTOGETHER! HE PULLS HER BACK UP TO HER FEET BEFORE PLACING HER INTO THE RIPCORD POSITION… RIPCORD KNEE! RIPCORD KNEE! AND IN MID-AIR HE TWISTS… “THE BLUEPRINT!!!” THE CUTTER AFTER PERFORMING THE KNEE, AS HE ROLLS AWAY!
James Peters: LUCAS JOHNSON SLIPS INTO A SEATED POSITION AS HE HOLDS ONTO HIS BACK! LUCAS ALMOST TASTES VICTORY HERE, BUT FIRST HE NEEDS TO END IT AS HE STARTS TO CRAWL BACK TO THE CORNER THAT MINERVA WAS JUST PLANTED IN! THIS TIME BOUNCING BACK AND FORTH AS HE AWAITS A RECOVERY FROM HER AGAIN, ONLY THIS TIME A CERTAIN ENDING! AS HE HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES HE SHOUTS AT MINERVA TO GET BACK UP, WHICH SHE IS INDEFINITELY DOING! MINERVA STARTS TO RECOVER AS SHE BEGINS TO GET BACK ONTO HER HANDS AND KNEES, ON ALL FOURS LIKE LUCAS DID EARLIER!
Rich Russillo: LUCAS IS SETTING UP THE PUNT KICK THAT MAY JUST END THE MATCH AS HE PREPARES TO CHARGE IN! IF THIS CONNECTS, MINERVA WILL DEFINITELY BE OUT COLD, AND IF THERE’S ANY HOPE OF SURVIVAL SHE HAS TO GET UP NOW… BUT IT SEEMS UNLIKELY… LUCAS JOHNSON CHARGES, AND HE WINS THE MA-
James Peters: BUT MINERVA WAS ONE STEP AHEAD, AND LIFTS HIM UP IN AN INVERTED GUTWRENCH TO TRANSITION INTO THE TOMBSTONE POSITION! SHE GOES FOR THE ‘TPK’, OR THE PRINCESS KILLER, MAYBE THE PRINCE KILLER IN THIS SCENARIO- BUT LUCAS SLIPS OUT!
Rich Russillo: HE LANDS ON HIS FEET BEFORE THROWING A ROUNDHOUSE- YET SHE DUCKS! LUCAS TWIRLS AROUND, BEFORE *BAM!* THE CLOSED FIST PUNCH RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW IS ENOUGH TO MAKE HIM STUMBLE, HIS GUARD IS COMPLETELY DOWN, AS SHE GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD… ‘ATLAS FALLS’!!!!! THE TWISTING BRAINBUSTER INTO THE CENTER OF THE MAT, BEFORE HOOKING THE LEG!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… MIIIIINEEEEEEERVAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
(‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie hits the speakers as the EAW National Elite Champion rolls away from Lucas Johnson, back to the center of the ring. The referee slides out of the ring to grab her championship, before raising her hand… only for her to simply not take the championship, letting it drop to the floor instead. She kicks it over to the corner, allowing it to slide across the mat, before she goes to the ropes to greet Myles who’s entering the ring. Neither of them look too impressed, but hey, a win is a win, as Myles places his arm around his girlfriend and teammate, kissing her cheek as they stand above Lucas Johnson.)
Persephone: Welp. That was expected AND boring. This is Voltage, why didn’t either of them just slide out of the ring and, you know, getting weapons? Are you supposed to tell me that Captain Charisma wouldn’t love a good ratings spike because of an exploding barbed wire anal deathmatch or whatever these fans keep blabbering on about? That’d be better than Lucas Johnson trying to convince the world he’s a good wrestler, and Minerva trying to convince the world that she’s hot. Neither are true. Unlike when it comes to my man Sexy Rexy, that is! :drakelike:
Rich Russillo: And me :drakelike:! Right? …Okay nvm. Either way, I don’t think Captain Charisma would give New Eden a deathmatch unless it was to plan their demise, or whatever he does, and hey I don’t think New Eden would take too kindly to it anyway. But regardless, the National Elite Champion proves why she’s the National Elite Champion despite kicking the title across the ring. I’m only mentioning this considering who the one challenging her is… Shane Gates :mjpls:! So to do my best impression of Persephone, only replacing Rex with Minerva, WOOO! GO MINNIE! DEFEND YOUR LEGADO!! NO ONE BUT… what?
James Peters: :mjlol: Well, regardless, congratulations to Minerva on picking up a well-fought victory, definitely regaining momentum she doesn’t seem to be losing recently, which helps out New Eden’s case a lot more than it would ever harm them. Title, no title – briefcase, no briefcase – New Eden never fail to make moves forward, regardless of the odds and regardless of the challenges…
(As Minerva and Myles finish posing in the center of the ring, the two then exit through the ropes as they leave Lucas Johnson lying in the very middle of it… the camera, however, remains focused on Lucas…)
(As Lucas Johnson slowly gets back up and gets ready to head back to the ramp, ‘Elevate’ by DJ Khalil hits, causing the crowd to burst into cheers. Amir Yusuf walks out to the stage with his New Breed Championship on his shoulder and a microphone on his hand, which catches Lucas Johnson by surprise, as well as all of the fans on Voltage from the looks of it.)
James Peters: Amir Yusuf is here! Amir Yusuf is on Voltage!
Rich Russillo: But what does he really want with Lucas Johnson?
Persephone: I don’t know.. Maybe let him speak so you could find out.
(Amir Yusuf stops at the beginning of the ramp, while Lucas Johnson waits at the end of it. Amir waits for the crowd to quiet down, even though he’s happy seeing their reaction, before beginning to speak.)
Amir Yusuf: When I dethroned Ryan Wilson for the New Breed Championship, my biggest goal was to elevate this title higher than he ever could. All he ever did with the New Breed Championship was drag it down after Andre Walker’s historic, record breaking reign. I wanted to undo the damage Ryan did to that Championship, and while I do believe that I’m well on my way towards doing that, I’m not just out here to talk about myself and what I’ve done. I’m out here because I’ve actually been listening, and if there’s anything I know about you after all this time, it’s that you are desperate to become Champion.
(The crowd cheers, meanwhile Lucas Johnson doesn’t say anything. He’s exhausted following his match against Minerva, but he also seems a bit curious, wanting to hear what Amir has to say.)
Amir Yusuf: You spent the last week complaining because you saw other people in the same position you wish you were in. You were complaining because when you looked around you on Voltage, you saw contendership matches between Kirk Redwood and Jay Jerry Johnson being made for the National Elite Championship. You saw people passing you up for opportunities, and now that even includes Shane Gates who’s in on the National Elite Championship match. And now while all of this is going on.. You’ve clearly proven that you just can’t hang with Minerva. That’s fine though, because maybe there’s just a different Championship in your eyesight. Maybe you just have something else on your mind.. And maybe that “something else” is the New Breed Championship.
(Lucas Johnson at this point has recovered for the most part from his match, and is really just waiting to hear where Amir Yusuf is going with this.)
Amir Yusuf: That brings me back to what I said when I came out here. I’m all for defending this Championship against whoever wants an opportunity. I want to be a fighting Champion, and even more than that. Reviving this New Breed Championship means taking on anybody and everybody, and like I said, I’ve been listening. All season long, you’ve wanted a chance. You wanted an opportunity because you believe that once you get that opportunity you’ll show out and prove that you belong in the Championship picture. I understand. I understand the feeling of wanting to prove yourself, and in a way you’re really not alone there. I’m the New Breed Champion now, but I’m also not content. I want to take on anybody who’s willing to put up a fight. I want actual competition, and I see the hunger. I can see that you actually want to succeed. I can see that you’re actually trying to take things seriously, so you know what? How about this? Lucas Johnson versus Amir Yusuf at Reasonable Doubt, for the New Breed Championship! You get the chance you were looking for all season long, and I get a challenge.
(The crowd bursts into cheers after Amir Yusuf’s announcement, knowing that that’d be a great New Breed Championship match. Lucas Johnson doesn’t say anything for a few moments, but finally he nods his head, looking right at the Championship.)
Amir Yusuf: Good. I’ll see you soon, but just remember. I didn’t become the New Breed Champion for nothing, and I’m not losing this title that easily.
(‘Elevate’ begins playing once again as the crowd continues cheering.)
James Peters: Amir Yusuf just challenged Lucas Johnson to a New Breed Championship match! Amir was right about a lot of what he had to say, Lucas Johnson has been wanting an opportunity, and at this point I think he’s done more than prove that he’s capable of putting on a great performance. Amir so far has definitely been living up to everything he’s said about becoming New Breed Champion, but could that all come crashing down thanks to his own actions? I don’t think Lucas is someone who’ll go down easily at this point.
Rich Russillo: I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! Both Amir and Lucas are very talented, and while Lucas may have lost his match tonight, he has nothing to be ashamed of when his opponent was Minerva. There’s definitely a great chance of Lucas defeating Amir, possibly a greater chance of it than Amir realizes.
Persephone: I genuinely couldn’t care less. We shouldn’t have even entertained this if this was just gonna set up some garbage title match. I’m just glad he asked for it to be on Reasonable Doubt, because I do NOT want to watch that match.
(As ‘Elevate’ continues playing, Amir Yusuf holds up his New Breed Championship, before making his way to the back. The camera then focuses on Lucas Johnson, who’s thinking about the opportunity ahead of him. From there, Voltage begins fading away from ringside.)
(Voltage fades to a promotional ad for Reasonable Doubt, where Amir Yusuf faces Lucas Johnson for the New Breed Championship.)
(“The Beginning” by ONE OK ROCK starts to play as Mary S. Atlas and Rebecca Blackwell head to the ring to cheers from the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome at this time, Mary S. Atlas and Rebecca Blackwell…MARYBECCA!
James Peters: We’ve been hearing rumors all week that MaryBecca have asked for some time tonight on Voltage to say what’s on their mind. It looks like the rumors are true.
Persephone: What are these blonde bimbos going to talk about? How they managed to figure out how to count to eleven without having to take off their shoes? Good grief. This is going to be a waste of time! We could have used this time to reflect on my Rexy’s greatness.
Rich Russillo: Knowing you, I can guarantee that you will always make time for him.
(Persephone rolls her eyes at Rich’s statement as MaryBecca enter the ring and ask for microphones. Bella Braxton obliges as “The Beginning” fades off.)
Mary S. Atlas: You know, normally we are always in very good moods around here.
Rebecca Blackwell: But lately, all we’ve been getting is nothing but DISRESPECT around here! Quite frankly, Mary and myself are getting pretty sick and tired of all the bullshit we’ve had to deal with lately. How about backstage last week when Cleopatra didn’t offer us any respect whatsoever.
Mary S. Atlas: Speaking of last week, what about the crap that went on during Rebecca’s match against Lucas. If it wasn’t for Lisa Wren and Kensi butting into business that didn’t concern them, Rebecca would’ve won. Instead, they came out and attacked the both of us and they ended up costing her the match against Lucas.
Rebecca Blackwell: You know what? Me and Mary believe that we deserve so much better around here than what we’ve actually been forced to deal with as of late. Don’t even get me started about neither one of us being the last one standing in the Divide and Conquer match at Clash of Kingdoms.
(The look of frustration on the faces of MaryBecca are becoming more apparent before they continue.)
Mary S. Atlas: That’s right! You know what else? Me and Rebecca both know damn well that we are capable of so much more. The first thing we have to do is make sure that all this blatant disrespect stops and stops NOW! And we’re going to begin with the two women who started all the disrespect.
(Mary and Rebecca turn and look at the entrance ramp.)
Rebecca Blackwell: Lisa Wren! Kensi! We know that you two are probably somewhere in the back listening to what we have to say. So how about you two just come on out to the ring because we have a little proposition for you two.
(Moments pass and there is no sign of either Lisa or Kensi.)
Mary S. Atlas: Come out, come out wherever you are!! What’s the matter? Are you two suddenly scared of us or something? I thought you two woul—
???: Will you two shut the hell up? I think you two bitches need to realize we don’t do things on your terms.
(Seconds after the voice finishes speaking, Lisa Wren appears at the top of the entrance ramp with a microphone by her mouth with Kensi right behind her.)
Kensi: Now, Miss Atlas and Miss Blackwell. Normally, with an attitude like that, we wouldn’t have even shown up. But the idea of you two ladies coming up with a proposition for us is very amusing to us. What exactly is this “proposition” of yours?
Rebecca Blackwell: Well it’s about time that you two decided to show up and grace us with your presence. Anyways, let’s get on with why we wanted you two out here. You see that there has been a lot of stuff going on between the four of us. So Mary and I had a wonderful idea.
Lisa Wren: Wonderful huh? What could you two empty-headed morons come up with?
Mary S. Atlas: If you would shut up for a second, we were getting ready to tell you. This is what we had in mind. We were thinking about…A MATCH!! A match with the two of you facing off against the two of us.
Kensi: Ohh really? Now where, pre tell, will this match take place?
Rebecca Blackwell: Well, duh! It’s going to happen at Voltage’s next free-per-view event. At Wicked Games!! So what do you guys say?
(Kensi and Lisa have a look of intrigue and interest after the challenge was made. Kensi and Lisa talk amongst themselves for a moment before giving them an answer.)
Lisa Wren: You know as tempting and exciting a match at Wicked Games would be against you guys…we’re just going to have to say no against you two skanks.
(Rebecca and Mary have stunned looks on their faces as the crowd boos at the denial of the match. That was certainly not the answer they were expecting.)
Mary S. Atlas: No? NO! What the hell do you mean no?
Rebecca Blackwell: That’s right! What the fuck are your problems? Are you guys scared that you would lose against us?
(Kensi and Lisa look at each other before they start laughing.)
Lisa Wren: Are you two bitches fucking serious? Why the hell would either of us be scared of the likes of you two—the Blonde Bimbo Brigade?
Kensi: I agree with my partner here. You two really need to calm down. Believe me when I say that a match against you two is a very intriguing idea, but there are a few things that need to be changed.
(Mary and Rebecca look at Lisa and Kensi with confusion evident on their faces.)
Mary S. Atlas: Change? What exactly is there to change? It’s a match!
Lisa Wren: Oh there is plenty to change in regards to your challenge for a match.
Kensi: I concur. Why should you two continue being the ones who call the shots? You’ve had your chance for that and neither of you were able to fully complete the task at hand. I think it’s time for a change in this little story of ours.
Lisa Wren: The ball has been in your court for way too damn long. Now it’s time for us to have control of things for a change.
Kensi: You have that right, Lisa. Now, ladies, if you are really wanting this match to happen, it’s going to happen on our terms. Not yours.
Rebecca Blackwell: ENOUGH OF THIS!! You’re stalling is really starting to piss me off. Now get on with the point and tell us what exactly it is that you want.
(Kensi and Lisa look at each other and shrug before continuing.)
Lisa Wren: Becky Inkwell, you are one impatient bitch. Now just shut the hell up and listen very closely to what we have to say. If you two really want this match so badly. It sure as fuck isn’t going to happen on a Voltage show. It’s going to happen on our turf. DYNASTY’S TURF! If you want your one chance to get your hands on us, you’re going to just have to do it at HOUSE OF GLASS!!
(The crowd cheers that the match can still happen. It’s now Mary and Rebecca’s turn to talk amongst themselves about the match. After they finish, they look up at Lisa and Kensi with smirks on their faces.)
Mary S. Atlas: You know what? You have a deal. We’ll have this match on your turf at House of Glass!
Rebecca Blackwell: Unlike you two, we have no problems or issues about where and when we fight you. It could be on a Dynasty show, It could have been on Voltage time, and shit we all could have taken a field trip to Showdown and fought there. The only thing that matters for us is being able to beat the shit out of you once and for all.
Kensi: Aren’t you guys just the cutest people we’ve ever seen? Just because everybody here has agreed to the when and where of this match doesn’t mean you have the capabilities to defeat us. You two ladies better be careful and not bite off more than you can chew.
Mary S. Atlas: Did you forget what happened the last time MaryBecca made an appearance on Dynasty? I am pretty sure Lisa remembers since we took her out of the Divide and Conquer match. We’re glad you’re feeling better, Lisa!
Lisa Wren: You shut your whore mouth, Perry! If you think that attacking me gives you two sluts the advantage against us, you are dead wrong. At House of Glass, you two are going to learn the hard way exactly what happens when you mess with me.
Rebecca Blackwell: I guess we will. I just hope it doesn’t sting too bad when the home team loses at their own event.
(“The Beginning” starts playing again as the two teams continue yelling at each other.)
James Peters: Look at this interesting development. As much as we would have loved to have this match at Wicked Games, it’s going to be at Dynasty’s House of Glass where we will see MaryBecca take on the team of Kensi and Lisa Wren.
Persephone: That’s a huge dose of bullshit! I don’t like any of these bitches, but we deserve the match on our show! Our brand made the challenge first.
Rich Russillo: You win some and you lose some. There’s always next time.
Persephone: Oh just shut up! Actually, I’m glad that Wicked Games doesn’t have that shitty match on the card. More time to devote to more videos and matches involving my Sexy Rexy!! Anyways, enough of this bullshit. Let’s get on with the show.
(Lisa and Kensi wave off MaryBecca and head backstage as MaryBecca smile in the ring as the camera cuts elsewhere.)

(Voltage fades back to ringside, and Bella Braxton is seen with a microphone in her hand.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is a tag team match, scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(‘While She Sleeps’ by New World Torture hits as Alex Myers slowly begins to walk out. The crowd gives large reaction that’s negative for the most part, and Alex walks down to the beginning of the ramp, not paying much attention to the crowd, regardless of whether or not it’s cheers or boos coming from them, only proving how focused they are this week.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… From Seattle, Washington…. Weighing in at 170 pounds…. ALLLEEEXXXX MMYYYEEERRSSSS!!!!
James Peters: Last week on Voltage, Ryan Wilson and Alex Myers were eliminated from the tag team turmoil tournament as they lost to Myles and Justin Windgate. It was an unfortunate loss for this team, but now they have the opportunity to brush themselves off as they face a team that they definitely know, at least a small bit after last week.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, there was a bit of an altercation between this team and Danny Tanner and Candice Blair. It looks like we might see things get resolved tonight!
(‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ by Mick Gordon hits, and the entire crowd begins booing as Ryan Wilson walks out to join Alex Myers. As Ryan eventually makes it by Alex’s side, the two Elitists begin making their way down the ramp and down to the ring, both looking very focused on their upcoming match after coming up short in their previous one.)
Bella Braxton: And his partner… Residing in Newark, New Jersey…. Weighing in at 220 pounds…. RYYYYAAANNNN WWIIIIIIILLLSSOONNN!!!!!
Persephone: Oh brother. I don’t know why Ryan Wilson takes so much pride in being hated. Congratulations, you’re annoying as hell! You still lose all of your matches :mjlol:.
James Peters: Ryan Wilson not too long ago was actually the New Breed Champion, but unfortunately that changed thanks to Amir Yusuf. Ryan may have also lost his opportunity to become a Unified Tag Team Champion, but right now is his chance to get some momentum back on his side!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, and I think Ryan would definitely love to win a match like this.
(‘Diva’ by Beyonce hits, and this marks the first entrant to receive cheers so far, as Candice Blair begins walking out. She has a smile on her face as she initially walks out, but it doesn’t take her too long to notice Ryan Wilson and Alex Myers, who are both looking directly at the stage. Candice doesn’t look too bothered though, as she stops at the end of the stage and waits for her partner.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… Introducing first.. From San Francisco, California… Weighing in at 126 pounds…. CAAANNNDDIICCCCEEE BLLAAAAAAIIRRR!!!!!
James Peters: Territorial Invasion didn’t go Candice and Danny’s way, but Candice did seem to have a good night at Clash of Kingdoms where she defeated Ashley Flores. Now her and Danny are up against Alex Myers and Ryan Wilson, and I have to say.. Neither of these two teams have been around for too long, but they have not done bad together!
Rich Russillo: I have to agree. They’ve definitely been impressive together, win or lose, and that goes for both teams in this match. Candice is definitely a talented competitor, and I have to say, Danny Tanner has been pretty impressive too.
(Finally, ‘Loser’ by Charles Hamilton hits. The crowd continues cheering as Danny Tanner walks out with a smile on his face, and Danny walks up to Candice as the team inside of the ring waits. Danny and Candice make their way down the ramp and towards the ring where Alex Myers decides he’s going to start the match, and Danny does his best to get himself focused for the match as the crowd continues cheering.)
Bella Braxton: And her partner… From Sarasota, Florida… Weighing in at 205 pounds.. DAAANNNNYYY TANNNNERRRR!!!!!
James Peters: This all started after a small backstage altercation between Danny Tanner and Alex Myers, so who knows? Maybe Danny will be able to get some payback tonight in this tag team match!
Rich Russillo: I’m not too sure. Danny has been impressive, but so has Alex. In the end this is still a tag team match, and that means both of them have partners to rely on tonight. In the grand scheme of things it’s about who’s the better team.
Persephone: And I doubt any team with Danny Tanner on it is the better team.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: It looks like Candice Blair is starting this match off with Alex Myers, and it looks like Candice has the chance to get some payback on Danny’s behalf after Alex did what they did to him! Candice and Alex now circling the ring, AND ALEX GOES FOR THE DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN BUT CANDICE HAD IT SCOUTED! Candice grabs Alex and sends them into the ropes, AND CANDICE DUCKS A LARIAT ATTEMPT BY ALEX BEFORE RUNNING OFF THE ROPES HERSELF, AND NOW THERE’S A DROPKICK TO ALEX MYERS! Both competitors quickly get back up, but Candice quickly charges at Alex-
Rich Russillo: Just to eat a back elbow to the jaw! Alex Myers connects with that back elbow, and now they take Candice down with a headlock takedown! Alex quickly lets go of the submission, BUT ONLY SO THEY COULD RUN THE ROPES WHILE CANDICE IS DOWN! ALEX WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE- NO! CANDICE BLAIR JUST BARELY MANAGES TO AVOID IT BEFORE PUSHING ALEX INTO THE CORNER FROM BEHIND! Candice Blair now charging in, AND CANDICE ATTEMPTS A JUMPING KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD- BUT ALEX AVOIDS IT, CAUSING CANDICE’S KNEE TO HIT THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Persephone: Alex Myers pulls Candice into a snapmare before running the ropes, and they went for a penalty kick but Alex sucks so of course he missed it. Candice was able to duck under the kick, and that gave her the opportunity to get back up to her feet and drop Alex by pulling their legs out from under them. Candice now drops onto Alex with a grounded headlock of her own, but Alex uses their legs to pull Candice off of them. Both Elitists get back to their feet, and Alex throws a right hand to Candice, but Candice was able to duck under it.
James Peters: Candice now kicking Alex in the midsection, and she lifts Alex up for a suplex, but Alex hits Candice with a knee to the head! Alex now pulling Candice for an irish whi- NO! Candice turns it around and sends Alex bouncing off of the ropes, and Candice drops Alex with an arm drag as soon as Alex bounced off of the ropes! Both Elitists get back to their feet, BUT CANDICE HITS ANOTHER ARM DRAG, and she’s not done there! ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY CANDICE BLAIR, HITTING ALEX RIGHT IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Candice now with the cover!
Rich Russillo: And Alex Myers kicks out! Both Elitists get back up, but obviously Candice is up first, allowing her to drag Alex to the corner and begin stomping away at him, dropping him to a seated position in the corner! Candice Blair now backpedaling to the opposite corner, AND SHE CHARGES IN- BUT ALEX MYERS SPRINGS OUT OF THE CORNER AND DELIVERS A FLYING FOREARM SMASH!! Candice might have been looking for a running meteora, but Alex just shut that down! Alex now heading towards their corner, and there’s the tag to Ryan Wilson!
Persephone: :yikes: From mid to flat out mediocre. Ryan Wilson is in the ring, and the first thing he does is kick Candice Blair in the stomach as she was on all fours trying to get back up. Ryan Wilson now pulls Candice up from behind, and he attempts to go for a back suplex, but Candice is able to flip out of it and land on her feet before stumbling backwards-
James Peters: RIGHT INTO A ROPE ASSISTED ENZUIGIRI FROM ALEX MYERS, TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
Rich Russillo: AND NOW RYAN GRABS CANDICE BEFORE DROPPING HER WITH A SIDEWALK SLAM! RYAN WILSON NOW WITH THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: CANDICE KICKS OUT!! That was a great move by Ryan though, and it looks like he’s working with Alex Myers pretty well! Candice Blair is definitely gonna need to make a tag soon, because these two clearly are on the same page and if this continues they can definitely get the win!
Persephone: I don’t see how that’s a bad thing. I mean I don’t care who wins, but anything that makes this match end faster is good to me.
James Peters: Ryan Wilson pulls Candice Blair up, but only so he could drop her back onto the mat with a snap suplex! Ryan now pulling her back up once again as he keeps her in the front facelock, and now he attempts a second suplex- BUT CANDICE MANAGES TO SLIP OUT OF IT AND LAND ON HER FEET BEHIND RYAN! RYAN WILSON TURNS AROUND- RIGHT INTO A SINGLE KNEE FACEBREAKER!! RYAN WILSON IS DOWN, AND NOW THAT GIVES CANDICE BLAIR THE OPENING SHE NEEDS TO MAKE IT TOWARDS HER CORNER AND MAKE THE TAG TO DANNY TANNER!
Rich Russillo: AND THERE IT IS! Ryan Wilson’s making it back to his feet, but Danny Tanner is the legal man now! Both Elitists begin charging towards each other, BUT DANNY GETS THE UPPER HAND WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE! DANNY NOW RUNNING OFF THE ROPES- AND DANNY CONNECTS WITH A BACK ELBOW TO ALEX MYERS, WHO LOOKED LIKE HE WAS TRYING TO GRAB DANNY FROM THE APRON, BEFORE BOUNCING OFF OF THE ROPES AND DELIVERING A DROPKICK TO RYAN WILSON! Danny Tanner gets back to his feet, and the crowd is loving what they’re seeing! Danny has a smile on his face knowing he has the upper hand, but he quickly turns his attention back to Ryan, who’s pulling himself up in the corner!
James Peters: Danny Tanner charges towards Ryan Wilson, but Ryan manages to connect with a boot to Danny’s face! Danny immediately stumbles back, and now Ryan pulls himself up to the middle rope before climbing all the way up top! RYAN NOW WITH A DIVING, NO! DANNY RUSHES INTO THE CORNER, CAUSING RYAN TO HAVE TO ROLL UP TO HIS FEET AFTER DIVING OFF! BOTH MEN CHARGE TOWARDS EACH OTHER- BUT DANNY TANNER DROPS DOWN AND PULLS RYAN INTO A SCHOOL BOY PIN! DANNY TANNER MIGHT STEAL IT FOR HIS TEAM!
Rich Russillo: RYAN WILSON KICKS OUT AND IMMEDIATELY GETS BACK UP BEFORE CHARGING AT DANNY- BUT LOOK AT DANNY GO!!! DANNY JUST CAUGHT RYAN WILSON AND DROPPED HIM WITH A SPINEBUSTER, AND IMMEDIATELY HE GOES FOR ANOTHER PIN!! WHAT A MOVE BY DANNY TANNER!!!
Rich Russillo: AND RYAN WILSON MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! I don’t blame Danny for wanting to go for the cover there! That was an impressive spinebuster, but now Danny has to think of another way to get the job done!
Persephone: Yeah, and knowing Danny Tanner, he’s not gonna be too successful there. Just like he’s not too successful in… Literally every other aspect of his life.
James Peters: Danny Tanner pulls Ryan Wilson up, and I think he’s found an idea! DANNY LIFTS RYAN UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR A FIREMAN’S CARRY- BUT RYAN WILSON IS ABLE TO SLIP OUT OF HIS GRASP! RYAN ESCAPES THE FIREMAN’S CARRY BY SLIPPING BEHIND DANNY, AND NOW RYAN DROPS DANNY WITH A NECKBREAKER! Ryan Wilson is back in this match, and that’s not what Candice and Danny want!
Rich Russillo: Ryan Wilson now backs into the opposite corner as Danny Tanner pulls himself up using the turnbuckles, AND NOW RYAN CHARGES IN BEFORE DELIVERING A HELLUVA KICK! THE UVA KICK CONNECTS, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE RYAN ISN’T FINISHED JUST YET! RYAN BACKS UP AND ALLOWS DANNY TO STUMBLE OUT OF THE CORNER, BEFORE LIFTING HIM UP AND DELIVERING LE BOMBE BLEU!!! LE BOMBE BLEU CONNECTS, AND RYAN FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A PIN OF HIS OWN! THIS MIGHT BE ENOUGH TO GET THE JOB DONE RIGHT HERE!!
Persephone: WHAT!?!? HOW DID DANNY TANNER KICK OUT??? IS RYAN WILSON REALLY THAT AWFUL??
James Peters: I don’t think it has anything to do with how good Ryan is, we saw that the match nearly came to an end because of him just now! Danny must really not want to lose this match, especially when he’s teaming up with Candice again! Ryan Wilson looks a bit frustrated as he sees Danny kick out, and he just shakes his head before getting back to his feet! Ryan now making the tag to Alex Myers, and I don’t think this is where Danny wants to be right now!
Rich Russillo: Alex Myers quickly rushes up to the top rope while Danny Tanner is still down, and we might be seeing the end of the match right now! Candice Blair is clearly hoping to see Danny make a move, but I’m not too sure how that’s going to happen! ALEX MYERS NOW, GOING FOR THE SINNERS LULLABY!!!!
Persephone: And…. It doesn’t even connect. Of course it doesn’t.
James Peters: DANNY TANNER MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING, NOT EVEN A FULL SECOND BEFORE HE WOULD’VE BEEN HIT WITH THE SINNERS LULLABY! DANNY’S CRAWLING TOWARDS HIS CORNER, AND ALEX’S SMALL MISTAKE MIGHT’VE HELPED CANDICE AND DANNY OUT MASSIVELY-
Rich Russillo: NO! ALEX WAS ABLE TO JUMP AND HIT DANNY WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD BEFORE DANNY COULD TAG IN CANDICE! Alex is still hurting from missing the Sinners Lullaby, but they’ve been out of the match for a while and that gave them some good time to recover! Alex Myers still has the upper hand, and now they’re just pummeling Danny Tanner, right in front of Candice Blair! Alex with forearms and elbows to the back of Danny’s head, and now Alex pulls Danny up! ALEX NOW LOOKING FOR A DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!!
James Peters: BUT DANNY TANNER MANAGES TO SLIP OUT OF IT ONTO HIS FEET, AND NOW HE LIFTS ALEX MYERS UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!!! MEIDO ZANGETSUHA!!! MEIDO ZANGETSUHA CONNECTS, AND NOW DANNY TANNER IMMEDIATELY GOES AND TAGS IN CANDICE BLAIR!!! CANDICE ENTERS THE RING, AND SHE DELIVERS A STANDING MOONSAULT, BEFORE FOLLOWING IT UP WITH DOUBLE KNEES!!! THAT SIGNATURE COMBINATION BY CANDICE BLAIR CONNECTS, AND AFTER BEING HIT WITH ALL OF THOSE BIG MOVES FROM CANDICE AND DANNY BACK TO BACK, THIS MAY BE IT FOR ALEX! CANDICE BLAIR WITH THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: ALEX MYERS SURVIVES!!! ALEX MYERS JUST BARELY MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THREE!!! Candice Blair can’t believe that this match isn’t over, all because somehow Alex managed to get their shoulder up just before the referee could reach the count of three! Candice Blair doesn’t look like she’s willing to let this match end without her and Danny getting the victory though, and now she’s lifting Alex up, looking to put this one away! CANDY DESTROYER-
Persephone: :mjlol: Nope. Doesn’t connect. Not even close. Alex managed to lift Candice over them, and now they quickly back into their own corner and tag Ryan back in.
James Peters: That was an extremely smart tag by Alex Myers, and now Ryan Wilson is able to quickly go after Candice- WHICH HE DOES AS HE RUNS IN AND HITS CANDICE WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE JUST AS SHE SAT UP! RYAN WILSON NOW PICKS CANDICE UP, AND HE LOOKS FOR THE MIC DROP- BUT CANDICE ISN’T GOING DOWN THAT EASILY! CANDICE IMMEDIATELY BEGINS PUNCHING AWAY AT RYAN’S STOMACH OVER AND OVER AGAIN, UNTIL FINALLY RYAN LETS GO OF HER! Ryan finally lets go as he holds his stomach, AND NOW CANDICE GOES FOR A BICYCLE KNEE!
Rich Russillo: RYAN AVOIDS IT! RYAN AVOIDS THE BICYCLE KNEE, AND NOW HE PULLS CANDICE BLAIR UP INTO A TORTURE RACK, BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE TORTURE RACK BOMB! AMAZING MOVE BY RYAN WILSON, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY RYAN! THAT’S IT!
Rich Russillo: CANDICE BLAIR GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!! CANDICE BLAIR IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! Now it’s Ryan Wilson that’s frustrated, but this has definitely been a fantastic match so far! Both teams deserve credit for how they’ve performed tonight!
Persephone: Ehhh. I’d prefer if this match was already over, but whatever.
James Peters: Ryan Wilson pulls Candice towards the center of the ring, and I think he’s about to go for a move he hasn’t used in this match just yet! RYAN NOW SETTING UP FOR THE SHARPSHOOTER- NO! CANDICE USES BOTH BOOTS TO PUSH RYAN AWAY! Candice now trying to make it up to her feet, AND RYAN JUST WENT FOR ANOTHER BOOT TO THE HEAD, BUT THIS TIME CANDICE AVOIDED IT! RYAN TURNS AROUND!! BICYCLE KNEE!!! THE BICYCLE KNEE CONNECTS BY CANDICE BLAIR, CAUSING RYAN TO FALL INTO THE ROPES-
Rich Russillo: AND NOW RYAN DELIVERS A SUPERMAN PUNCH!!! RYAN DELIVERED A SUPERMAN PUNCH AFTER REBOUNDING OFF OF THE ROPES, BUT NOW BOTH ELITISTS ARE DOWN AS RYAN’S STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE BICYCLE KNEE! BOTH CANDICE AND RYAN ARE DOWN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY BOTH MIGHT NEED TO MAKE A TAG RIGHT NOW! Both Elitists are slowly beginning to stir as they get up into seated positions, AND CANDICE HITS RYAN WITH A LEFT HAND! Ryan holds his face, BEFORE SITTING UP AND HITTING CANDICE WITH A RIGHT HAND! NOW CANDICE WITH A PUNCH! NOW RYAN!
Persephone: Both of them are going back and forth, but I don’t really care because this match has gone on WAY longer than it ever needed to.
James Peters: CANDICE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE RIGHT HAND, AND NOW THAT DROPS RYAN! CANDICE NOW PULLING HERSELF TOWARDS HER OWN CORNER, AND SHE MAKES THE TAG TO DANNY TANNER!
Rich Russillo: BUT AT THE SAME TIME, RYAN WILSON MANAGED TO REACH OUT AND GET THE TAG TO ALEX MYERS!!! BOTH DANNY TANNER AND ALEX MYERS ARE THE LEGAL COMPETITORS, AND I DON’T THINK DANNY EXPECTED RYAN TO MAKE THE TAG ON TIME! THAT SLIGHT HESITATION JUST HELPED ALEX, WHO QUICKLY CHARGES IN AND DELIVERS A FRONT DROPKICK, SENDING DANNY CRASHING INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
Persephone: Alright! Cool! Whatever! Now hurry up and kill him!
James Peters: ALEX MYERS NOW PULLS DANNY TANNER UP, BEFORE DELIVERING A GERMAN SUPLEX, SENDING DANNY ROLLING TOWARDS THE ROPES!!! Alex Myers waits for Danny Tanner to get back to his feet before charging in, BUT DANNY MANAGES TO GET THE BOOT UP! Alex Myers stumbles back, BUT ALEX QUICKLY TURNS AROUND BEFORE CATCHING DANNY OFF GUARD WITH A CLOTHESLINE, SENDING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: DANNY MANAGED TO HOLD ONTO THE ROPES THOUGH, ALLOWING HIM TO STAY ON THE APRON! ALEX MYERS IS QUICK TO RETALIATE THOUGH, AS THEY HIT DANNY WITH A FOREARM! Alex now grabs Danny, AND I THINK ALEX IS ATTEMPTING TO LIFT DANNY UP FOR A SUPLEX BACK INTO THE RING, BUT DANNY’S ABLE TO PULL HIS WEIGHT DOWN BEFORE LIFTING ALEX UP, AND THAT ALLOWS HIM TO PULL ALEX MYERS OUT ONTO THE APRON WITH DANNY! Both Elitists are on the apron now, AND DANNY LOOKS TO TRY AND CAPITALIZE WITH A FOREARM, BUT ALEX BLOCKS IT BEFORE KICKING DANNY INTO THE RINGPOST!
James Peters: Danny grabs onto the top rope to stay on the apron, AND NOW ALEX CHARGES IN BEFORE- WOW! DANNY TANNER WITH A SPEAR, SENDING BOTH MEN OFF OF THE APRON!!! DANNY WAS THIS CLOSE TO GETTING HIT WITH A BIG MOVE FROM ALEX, AND INSTEAD DANNY MANAGED TO TAKE BOTH ELITISTS OFF OF THE APRON! That was an amazing move by Danny, but now both Elitists are hurt and the referee is forced to begin a count!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!…
James Peters: Danny Tanner slowly finds his way back up, but- HEY WAIT A MINUTE!!!
Rich Russillo: RYAN JUST ATTACKED DANNY TANNER FROM BEHIND! RYAN WILSON’S NOT THE LEGAL MAN, BUT HE’S TRYING TO HELP ALEX MYERS OUT SINCE THEY’RE ON THE OUTSIDE! That wasn’t fair at all, but technically this is not illegal! Alex Myers is slowly getting back up, and now this might just become a two on one!
Referee: FOUR!… FIVE!…
Rich Russillo: NO IT’S NOT! CANDICE BLAIR IS INSIDE OF THE RING, AND SHE RUNS TOWARDS WHERE ALL THE COMMOTION IS BEFORE DIVING THROUGH THE ROPES!!! SUICIDE DIVE TO BOTH RYAN WILSON AND ALEX MYERS BY CANDICE BLAIR, WHO JUST SAVED DANNY TANNER!! EVERYONE IS DOWN NOW!!! ALL FOUR COMPETITORS ARE DOWN!
Persephone: ALRIGHT!! HURRY UP REFEREE!!!! SIXSEVENEIGHTNINETEN! IT’S NOT THAT HARD, JUST COUNT!
Persephone: Oh my God… HURRY UP!!!
James Peters: Candice Blair is trying to help Danny Tanner up, BUT NOW IT’S ALEX MYERS THAT ATTACKS CANDICE! I think Alex didn’t take as much of the suicide dive as Ryan, and now they’re going after Candice! Candice is fighting back though, and now it’s a back and forth between Candice Blair and Alex Myers, when only one of them are actually legal in this match!
Referee: SEVEN!… EIGHT!….
Rich Russillo: Danny Tanner slowly finds his way back up to his feet, AND HE QUICKLY TRIES TO RUSH BACK INTO THE RING- BUT RYAN WILSON GRABS HIM BY THE LEG AND STOPS HIM BEFORE HE COULD! RYAN KNEW THAT AT THIS POINT IF DANNY GETS BACK IN HE AND CANDICE COULD VERY WELL WIN THE MATCH BY COUNT OUT, AND HE WASN’T GOING TO HAVE THAT HAPPEN! RYAN NOW GRABS DANNY AND RAMS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE, CAUSING DANNY TO HAVE TO START FIGHTING RYAN OFF! ALEX AND CANDICE ARE GOING AT IT, AS ARE DANNY AND RYAN! BOTH TEAMS ARE BRAWLING OUTSIDE OF THE RING-
Persephone: Although I don’t think Danny’s part of this by choice :mjlol:.
James Peters: Meanwhile, the referee is still counting!
James Peters: ALEX MYERS MANAGES TO GET CANDICE OFF OF THEM WITH A HUGE RIGHT HAND, BUT LOOK AT DANNY TANNER, SHOVING RYAN WILSON AWAY! BOTH ELITISTS NOW RUSHING INTO THE RING AS THEY’RE THE TWO LEGAL COMPETITORS-
James Peters: THEY WERE TOO LATE! THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL, THEY COULDN’T MAKE IT IN TIME!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… This match has ended in a double countout.. Therefore it has been ruled a NO CONTEST!!!
(All four competitors are on their feet, realizing that they failed to make it back into the ring before the count of ten. Boos are heard from the crowd, solely because they wanted the match to continue.)
James Peters: That was a great match, but in the end we were left without a winner! Both Danny and Alex were this close to re-entering the ring, but in the end they weren’t able to!
Rich Russillo: These four might have some unfinished business after tonight. After a match like that ending without a clear winner, I’d be surprised if this is the end of it!
Persephone: Please don’t wish something like that on us. The last thing I need is for this match to ever happen again.
(Ryan and Alex slowly make their way up the ramp as Danny and Candice regroup, recovering from the match, and neither team takes their eyes off of the other. The crowd is giving a mixed reaction, as they still enjoyed the match despite it ending in a no contest, and from there Voltage begins to fade away from ringside.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial for the recent fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, featuring the Visual Prophet. Relive the experience now!)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break to show Bella Braxton standing at the center of the ring with a smile on her face and a microphone in her hand ready to announce.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following singles match is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Nothing Helps’ by ONE OK ROCK blasts through the speakers of the arena to loud cheers from the crowd upon seeing Mary S. Atlas make her way out to the stage with a smile on her face and her arms spread out wide. Behind her, Rebecca Blackwell follows with a smile as she hypes her up. Both of them look towards the ring, beginning to make their way down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, accompanied by Rebecca Blackwell… from St. Louis, Missouri… weighing in at 125 pounds… MOST WANTED… MARY S. ATLAS!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: It’s been a very hectic few weeks for not just Mary, but her partner, Rebecca as well. Getting attacked by Lisa and Kensi the prior week along with Mary confronting Miku and both of them getting into it with a person to be mentioned in a minute. Both of them have a lot on their plate and I don’t think they really mind.
James Peters: There in it to win and as long as that happens, I don’t think they’ll have much of a problem. Of course, Mary tonight has a lot on her plate as well, but I think she has a lot on her mind as well. With Rebecca being challenged earlier in the night for the Specialists Championship after Mary interrupted Miku’s interview, you just have to wonder if she’s somehow going to be a factor in this match.
Persephone: I hope not, it already reeks here as it is. I don’t want more people here and infesting the area with their COVID.
(‘Mona Lisa ft. Kendrick Lamar’ by Lil Wayne blares through the speakers to the absolutely thunderous cheers from the crowd upon seeing Cleopatra with a smile on her face making her way out through the backstage area. She looks around at the Scotland crowd who seem to be on their feet before she turns around and begins to make her way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada… weighing in at 128 pounds… THE PTOLEMATIC VIXEN… CLEOPATRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: And for the first time since Clash of Kingdoms 2, Cleopatra is making her way to the ring! And I’m sure she has something to prove tonight, looking to get a win to redeem herself after the loss she sustained against Minerva. But also, for a different reason as well especially considering what we saw last week.
James Peters: An interview being conducted towards her was stopped abruptly as Cleopatra took notice to a very aggravated MaryBecca, who told them to go be angry somewhere else, and it’s apparent that both of them didn’t take it so nicely. It’s clear that left a bad taste on the Hall of Famer’s mouth and it’s something that she won’t forget making her way into this match tonight, making one hell of a statement to the two of them that they should absolutely not bite the hand that feeds.
Persephone: WHO TOLD THIS WOMAN WE WANT HER TO WRESTLE AGAIN?! Bitch got her blood money, GET THE FUCK OUT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go, as this singles match is officially underway! Both Mary S. Atlas and Cleopatra are circling around the ring, mirroring one another with tension that could be cut with a knife. Both of them are heavily focused and that’s apparent as both of them quickly lock up into a collar-and-elbow tie-up! Both of them attempt to jockey for position, but it’s Cleopatra that manages to slip through and lock in a headlock on Mary! Cleopatra dropping her weight in an attempt to keep it cinched in for as long as possible! But it’s Mary that manages to push away and get behind Cleopatra to lock in a waist lock, BEFORE LIFTING HER UP AND SLAMMING HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
James Peters: Cleopatra quickly tries to recover, but it’s Mary that lunges forward and locks in a grounded side headlock! Mary attempts to keep the Queen of The Nile down on the ground as long as she possibly can! Cleopatra attempting to reach a vertical base, realizing that’s not enough, before bringing her legs up and grabbing Mary’s head, transitioning it in her favor into a headscissors! Cleopatra manages to save herself just for the moment as it appears Mary is the one that finds herself in a sticky situation!
Persephone: UGH! You know how you know a match is going to be bad? If they spend five hours chain wrestling because this is a “fEelIng oUt prOcEss,” fuck right off.
Rich Russillo: Cleopatra has Mary stuck right where she wants her at the center of the ring, but it looks like that’s not going to be for long as Mary looks to slowly but surely turn herself onto her stomach! Cleopatra tries to keep Mary grounded, but her persistence seems to be getting the better of her at the moment! Mary manages to roll herself onto her stomach alongside Cleopatra! That is bad news for Cleopatra seeing as this gives Mary more of a base to slip her head out of the hold! Cleopatra scrambling up to her feet in hopes of recovering before Mary can do anything, BUT IT’S MARY THAT GRABS HER BY HER HEAD AND SLAMS HER BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
James Peters: Cleopatra definitely felt that, grabbing her head in pain while she attempts to bring herself back up to her feet before Mary can do anything else. But it’s Mary that grabs her and immediately backs her against the ropes, sending her towards the opposite pair with an Irish whip! BEFORE RUNNING TOWARDS CLEOPATRA AND LOOKING TO CATCH HER AGAINST THE JAW WITH A BICYCLE KICK! But before that can happen it’s Cleopatra that manages to push the leg out of the way and stop herself in her tracks! BUT MARY USES THE MOMENTUM TO SPIN AROUND AND CONNECT WITH A BACK ELBOW TO HER NOSE DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: False idols everyone. People who say they are legends of the ring then get their ass beat by a bunch of nobodies, reality is often disappointing isn’t it?
Rich Russillo: Cleopatra is down on the mat, grabbing her nose while she clenches onto the canvas and tries to drag herself towards the ropes. But it looks like before she can reach them it’s Mary that has her by the head and begins to bring her back up to her feet. Cleopatra is trying to fight back, pushing through and beginning to send repeated forearm shots towards her face! But it’s Mary that shoves her away forcing her back, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD OF CLEOPATRA TO DROP HER DOWN TO THE GROUND ONCE MORE!
James Peters: Cleopatra managing to keep herself up though in some capacity, dipping down to a knee for a moment before getting up and falling against the ropes. Mary running forward, LOOKING TO SEND HER OVER THE TOP WITH A BIG BOOT TO HER FACE! But it’s Cleopatra that manages to sidestep and throw Mary through the middle rope! Mary stumbling backwards trying to hold her ground on the outside, BUT THAT LOOKS TO BE A PROBLEM FOR HER AS CLEOPATRA CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND LAUNCHES OFF TAKING MARY DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A METEORA!
(Cleopatra gets right back up to her feet and looks around at the crowd cheering their lungs out for her. She looks around with a smirk before focusing her attention on Mary, before she takes a good look at Rebecca Blackwell, who’s made her way around to check on her partner. Cleopatra only blows a kiss to her before grabbing Mary by her hair and rolling her back into the ring.)
Persephone: Too many people, too close to me :mjcry:. SHOO! SHOO!
Rich Russillo: Cleopatra jumping onto the apron and beginning to make her way up to the top rope, all while Mary is trying to recover. BUT BEFORE SHE CAN LEAP OFF MARY GETS A SECOND WIND AND STEPS ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE BEFORE LAUNCHING A KNEE TOWARDS HER JAW! Mary grabs Cleopatra by her arm and drags her off the turnbuckle before pushing her into the corner, SENDING A SHINING WIZARD TO HER HEAD WHILE SHE’S BACKED UP IN THE CORNER! Mary transitioning now, RUNNING FORWARD AND LOOKING TO DROP HER AT THE CENTER OF THE WITH A BULLDOG!
James Peters: BUT CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO KEEP HERSELF UP AND LIFT MARY IN THE AIR BEFORE SLAMMING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! CLEOPATRA HOLDING IT AND PINNING MARY’S SHOULDERS TO THE MAT!
Persephone: Unfortunately, Mary kicks out. And unfortunately for dear old Persephone, probably the most boring match of all time continues.
Rich Russillo: Cleopatra pushing away and immediately getting back up to her feet, she takes a moment to collect herself but I don’t think she has very long with Mary trying to get back up to her feet. BUT IT’S CLEOPATRA THAT STEPS FORWARD BEFORE DRIVING MARY’S HEAD DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A SNAP DDT! Cleopatra now giving herself some leeway as she gets right back up and falls against the corner, waiting for Mary to rise up which is what she begins to do with all of the strength that she has in her body at the moment. BUT SHE DOESN’T NOTICE CLEOPATRA RUNNING TOWARDS HER AND LAUNCHING HERSELF INTO THE AIR GOING FOR A HURRICANRANA PIN!
James Peters: BUT MARY MANAGES TO KEEP CLEOPATRA IN THE AIR BEFORE COMPLETELY SLAM HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! Extraordinary strength especially with the fatigue kicking in being shown by Mary as she waits for Cleopatra to get back up to her feet this time! Cleopatra clenching a fist on the canvas while she grips at her spine completely leveled by the surprise counter by Mary! MARY WITH SECTUMSEMPRA! ROLLING ELBOW TO THE FACE OF THE HALL OF FAMER DROPS HER DOWN TO THE GROUND AS MARY FALLS WITH HER AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR A PIN ATTEMPT!
Persephone: :will: Kick out once again. You guys have to stop baiting me this is unacceptable, keep making me think this match is ending…
Rich Russillo: Mary slowly rolling herself off of Cleopatra and beginning to bring herself up to a knee, the look of acceptance on her face says that she expected this, and rightfully so. Cleopatra has done everything she has done by being one of the best in her craft, which leaves this match as one tough job for Mary S. Atlas. Mary manages to get herself back up to her two feet before focusing on Cleopatra who’s eyes slowly flutter awake. You can hear Rebecca slamming the canvas repeatedly trying to rally the crowd behind her partner, while Mary slowly begins to bring her up to her feet! SETTING HER UP FOR A DRAGON SUPLEX TO TAKE HER DOWN ONCE MORE!
James Peters: But it’s Cleopatra that manages to break free of the hold that Mary has on her before turning around and shoving her away! Mary stumbles backwards before running towards her, BUT IT’S CLEOPATRA THAT MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD TO DROP HER DOWN TO THE MAT! Cleopatra forced to drop down to a knee for a moment, attempting to collect herself before she grabs Mary by her head and bringing her up to her feet. BEFORE SETTING HER UP BEFORE DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! But it looks like Cleopatra isn’t done, ROLLING THROUGH AND DROPPING HER DOWN INTO A TANDEM SNAP SUPLEX FOR GOOD LUCK!
Persephone: 45 more degrees north and you would’ve dropped her on her neck! Believe me, I would’ve loved seeing that little bitch’s neck snap.
Rich Russillo: Cleopatra is looking to keep it going, grabbing her by her head before sending her towards the turnbuckle padding with an Irish whip! BEFORE SHE RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH TOWARDS MARY’S FACE! Cleopatra looking to keep it going, grabbing her by her arm again before sending her towards the opposite corner with another Irish whip! BEFORE CLEOPATRA RUNS FORWARD THIS TIME LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND GOING FOR A JUMPING KNEE TO HER HEAD!
James Peters: But Mary is more aware, managing to narrowly avoid it and stumble away from the corner! Cleopatra collides with the corner, in pain but quickly turning around knowing the situation that she finds herself in! BUT BEFORE SHE CAN FIXATE HER ATTENTION IT’S MARY THAT RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A CORNER CLOTHESLINE TO HER HEAD! Mary grabbing her by her head as she throws her down to the center of the ring while she makes her way up to the top rope! LAUNCHING OFF THE TOP ROPE AND GOING FOR A TOP ROPE CROSSBODY TO DROP CLEOPATRA!
Persephone: BUT SHE SLIPS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND TUMBLES DOWN TO THE GROUND LIKE THE IDIOT SHE IS!
Rich Russillo: NOT EXACTLY! CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO CATCH HER IN MIDAIR WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO HER FACE AND SIMULTAMEOUSLY KNOCKING HER AND HER MOMENTUM OUT COLD! CLEOPATRA ISN’T DONE THOUGH! BRINGING UP THE LIMB BODY OF MARY AND DROPPING HER DOWN INTO A FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX! BRIDGED INTO A PIN ATTEMPT!
James Peters: BUT MARY MANAGES TO KICK OUT JUST IN TIME! TO THE EXCITEMENT OF REBECCA BLACKWELL AT RINGSIDE, THIS MATCH CONTINUES!
Persephone: I have some advice for both of these competitors. I’m not an Elitist, although if I was I’d whip the entire roster and win all the Championships. But if you were to ask me? Just don’t kick out 💯 💯 💯.
Rich Russillo: Well unfortunately I don’t think any of the people on this roster are going to conform to that, Persephone. But nonetheless, Cleopatra is right back up to her feet, grabbing Mary by her head and bringing her up to her feet with all the strength that she has in her body. She grabs Mary by her hair before sending her towards the ropes with an Irish whip! BEFORE CLEOPATRA RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK TO HER CHEST ONCE AGAIN DROPPING HER DOWN TO THE MAT!
James Peters: Cleopatra makes her way onto the apron, before beginning to climb up onto the turnbuckles taking the opportunity while she can. Cleopatra is on the top, finding herself perched up while Mary is down on the ground, looking for a big move to keep her down on the ground! CLEOPATRA LOOKING TO FLY! WAIT! WAIT!
(In a heartbeat Rebecca Blackwell jumps up onto the apron, making Cleopatra catch notice of her. Rebecca realizes that her partner is in trouble and goes to do something about it, but she just stands on the apron staring at Cleopatra in anger. The referee is shouting at Rebecca to jump off the apron while Cleopatra waves to her with a smirk on her face.)
Persephone: GOD JUST JUMP OFF THE TOP ROPE ALREADY!
Rich Russillo: CLEO LEAPING OFF THE TOP ROPE AND GOING FOR A SHOOTING STAR PRESS! ONE OF THE SIGNATURE MOVES FROM THE VIXEN’S ARSENAL IN AN ATTEMPT TO COMPLETELY TAKE THE AIR OUT OF MARY’S BODY!
James Peters: BUT WAIT! MARY USING THE DISTRACTION AND PUTTING IT TO GOOD USE! MANAGING TO GET UP TO HER FEET AND CATCH CLEOPATRA IN MID AIR WITH HEAD SHOT! THE SUPERKICK TO THE FACE COMPLETELY KNOCKS CLEOPATRA OUT AS MARY ROLLS CLEOPATRA OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT! NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS!
Rich Russillo: HOW THE HELL DID CLEOPATRA MANAGE TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AFTER THAT! EVEN AFTER THE DISTRACTION! EVEN AFTER ALL THE HOOPS THAT SHE’S HAD TO JUMP THROUGH IN THIS MATCH! THE HALL OF FAMER CONTINUES TO FIGHT ON REGARDLESS OF EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN THROWN IN HER WAY!
That definitely leaves a bad taste in Mary’s mouth, just look at the face of complete shock as she looks around, and that expression is practically mirrored on the face of Rebecca Blackwell as well. Both of them are 100% despondent at the moment and I don’t think they really expected Cleopatra to have it in her. Possibly the biggest win in Mary’s career, put on ice because of the Greatest Vixen That Ever Lived, cold.
Persephone: Good, I hope both sides of her pillow are warm. Not just Cleopatra, BOTH of them.
James Peters: Mary grabs her by her arm and brings her up to her feet, before grabbing her by her arm and sending her towards the ropes, but before she can rebound it’s Cleopatra that grabs the ropes and saves herself! MARY RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR A CLOTHESLINE TO SEND HER OUT OF THE RING! BUT IT’S CLEOPATRA WITH A BOOT TO HER FACE SENDING HER BACKWARD! CLEOPATRA RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR A FOREARM SMASH TO HER FACE!
Persephone: I THINK I SAW A TOOTH- FUCK! SHE DIDN’T HIT IT!
Rich Russillo: BUT MARY WITH A BACK BODY DROP TO TAKE CLEOPATRA DOWN TO THE GROUND! Cleopatra grabbing her back and slowly trying to get back up to her feet, BUT IT’S MARY WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF CLEOPATRA, BEFORE GOING FOR A FACEBUSTER! But before she can do that it’s Cleopatra with a headbutt to the skull of Mary! Mary stumbles backwards but attempts to collect herself and run forward, BUT CLEOPATRA WITH A DISCUS ELBOW TO THE HEAD OF MARY!
James Peters: But Mary manages to duck under that before throwing Cleopatra towards the ropes and back! BUT CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO USE THAT MOMENTUM TO EXECUTE A SUNSET FLIP! BEFORE ROLLING HER THROUGH AND CONNECTING WITH A FRONT DROPKICK TO HER FACE COMPLETELY TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND BEFORE SHE QUICKLY STUMBLES UP TO HER FEET!
Persephone: JUST FINISH THIS MATCH PLEASE!
Rich Russillo: Cleopatra falls against the corner while Mary tumbles down to the ground. She isn’t down for long though as she appears to be muscling out surprising strength to get herself back up to her feet, which doesn’t leave Cleopatra much time to do anything with her taking her time. She begins to make her way up to the middle rope while Mary begins to get up!
James Peters: CLEOPATRA OFF THE ROPES! BRUTALITY! CANADIAN DESTROYER!
Rich Russillo: BUT MARY KICKS HER LEGS RIGHT FROM UNDER HER BEFORE SHE CAN FULLY LIFT OFF AND SENDS HER TUMBLING DOWN TO THE CANVAS! Mary dragging her towards the center of the ring, before setting her up and hooking the arms! DRILLING CLEOPATRA DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH THE MOST WANTED DDT! BUTTERFLY DDT CONNECTS COMPLETELY TAKING CLEOPATRA OUT! BUT MARY ISN’T GOING FOR THE PIN!
James Peters: Mary falls against the corner, bracing herself and patiently waiting for Cleopatra to get up to her feet, which she finds to be a struggle at the moment. Believe it or not, Mary has her right where she wants her, now the only thing that she has to do now? Is capitalized and seize the opportunity while it’s hot. Cleopatra is up to her feet, stumbling around at the center of the ring and trying to fixate her focus on Mary, but it looks like it’s too late! MARY RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR WELCOME TO MARYLAND! THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER TO FINISH OFF CLEOPATRA ONE MORE TIME!
Persephone: DO IT FASTER NEXT TIME!
Rich Russillo: But it’s Cleopatra that manages to avoid it by keeping Mary in the air before shoving back down to the mat! Mary manages to keep her ground, being caught by surprise as she stumbles backwards and falls against the ropes! But she manages to rebound it, RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR 9 MILES! THE BICYCLE KICK OUT OF NOWHERE!
James Peters: But Cleo manages to move out of the way, finding herself behind Mary! CLEOPATRA WITH THE STRANGLEHOLD DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! I THINK WE KNOW WHAT THIS IS LEADING INTO! THE STRAIGHT JACKET CHOKE! THE CLEO LOCK IS CINCHED IN ALL THE WHILE CLEOPATRA IS STARING A HOLE INTO REBECCA BLACKWELL WHO LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS AT RINGSIDE!
Persephone: Come on, don’t be scared… TAP!!!
Rich Russillo: MARY IS TRYING HER BEST TO NOT GIVE INTO THE FINISHING COMBINATION OF THE PTOLEMATIC VIXEN BUT IT SEEMS LIKE WITH EVERYTHING THAT SHE’S BEEN PUT THROUGH! THIS MIGHT JUST HAVE TO BE THE END OF THE ROAD FOR HER BUT THE QUESTION IS HOW LONG WILL SHE BE ABLE TO LAST UNTIL IT’S TOO MUCH?!
James Peters: MARY GIVES UP! MARY IS FORCED TO SUBMIT TO THE CLEO LOCK!
Persephone: LET’S FUCKING GO! FUCK YOU MARY! FUCK YOU CLEO!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: LOOK! LOOK! BEFORE THE CELEBRATION CAN EVEN BEGIN REBECCA SLIDES INTO THE RING AND TAKES CLEOPATRA DOWN TO THE GROUND BEFORE NAILING HER WITH REPEATED PUNCHES TOWARDS HER FACE! SHE’S SEEN ENOUGH AND SHE’S OUT FOR BLOOD RIGHT NOW!
James Peters: Cleopatra trying to shove her out of the way and scramble up to her feet before Rebecca can do anything else, which is what happens giving the Hall of Famer some sort of leeway for the time being! BUT AIR BLACKWELL CONNECTS! REBECCA WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT COMPLETELY KNOCKING CLEOPATRA OUT COLD CONNECTS!
Persephone: Jobber collective out here trying to raise their stock, can you guys do this at a different time, please?
(Rebecca makes her way over to Mary and helps her up to her feet, Mary shakes her head in fatigue before looking at Cleopatra who is down on the ground, then up to Rebecca with a big smirk on her face as both nod their heads.)
Rich Russillo: Rebecca bringing Cleopatra up onto her shoulders with a fireman’s carry, WHILE MARY RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A 9 MILES ROLLING ELBOW STRIKE TO THE HEAD OF CLEOPATRA! BEFORE REBECCA TAKES HER DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A BECCA DRIVER! THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER COMPLETELY TAKES CLEOPATRA DOWN AND IT SEEMS BOTH OF THEM ARE LOOKING TO FINISH HER OFF!
James Peters: Rebecca grabbing Cleopatra and holding her up, BEFORE MARY SENDS A HEADSHOT SUPERKICK TO HER FACE DROPPING CLEOPATRA DOWN TO A KNEE! WHILE REBECCA RUNS TO THE ROPES AND BACK GOING FOR SCORPIO RISING! THE AXE KICK TO THE BACK OF CLEOPATRA’S HEAD! SCORPIO HEADSHOT!
Persephone: EWWW! MORE BITCHES!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! WAIT! IT’S MIKU SAKAI! MIKU JUST SLID INTO THE RING AND SLAMMED THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST THE FACE OF REBECCA WHILE SHE REBOUNDED OFF THE ROPES TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! I DON’T THINK MIKU THINKS REAL HIGHLY WHEN IT COMES TO CLEOPATRA, BUT AFTER WHAT HAPPENED EARLIER IN THE NIGHT THIS IS THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO PUT HER IN HER PLACE!
James Peters: Miku turning her attention to Mary, RUNNING FORWARD AND LOOKING TO DROP HER DOWN WITH NIGHT NIGHT! THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER TO DROP MARY DOWN TO THE GROUND AND LAY DOWN THE LAW!
Persephone: BUT THAT LITTLE BITCH SLIDES OUT OF THE RING BEFORE THAT CAN HAPPEN! HAH! WHAT A PUSSY!
(Mary begins to circle around the ring and grabs the leg of Rebecca and pulls her out of the ring and out of harms way. She checks on her and helps her out while looking at Miku in the ring and Cleopatra who is slowly recovering. Cleopatra’s eyes flutter looking at Miku yelling at the two of them to bring the fight back to the ring, before raising her Specialists Championship high in the air. The last shot seen is Cleopatra getting up to her feet while Miku turns her head towards her, not saying anything as she turns around and leaves the ring before Voltage from there, then begins to fade to commercial break.)
(Commercial for the upcoming video game Spider-Man 2. In stores 2023, only for Playstation 5.)
(Voltage fades back from commercial before cutting to ringside, and ‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer)’ by Shiro SAGISU hits. The crowd begins booing, somehow even louder than usual as the three members of New Eden begin walking out. The three of them have microphones in their hands as they normally do, and they’re dragging along their Championships and Cash in the Vault briefcase. Drake King, Myles and Minerva make their way to the ring, ignoring the extremely loud boos coming from the crowd.)
James Peters: Honestly, at this point it’s getting hard having to even watch these three make their way to the ring every single week. What they did to Jamie O’Hara was extremely unfair, and I still haven’t gotten over that.
Rich Russillo: It was extremely unfortunate. We might not be seeing Jamie O’Hara anytime soon thanks to these three, and now they’re just walking out here just as they usually do.
Persephone: Honestly, I’m just upset that I have to listen to these three speak again.
(All three members of New Eden enter the ring, and they wait for a few moments for the crowd to quiet down, but as expected, the booing only continues. The wait doesn’t last too long, as they decide to just speak over the boos.)
Drake King: Jamie had it coming.
(The boos grow louder, but Drake doesn’t care and just continues to speak.)
Drake King: Why should any of you feel sorry for him? Haven’t we already been over this? Jamie O’Hara has no reason to still be in EAW. This place should have surpassed the need for Jamie a long time ago but instead he just keeps coming back, over and over again. He’s already done it all, what more could any of you possibly want from him? What more could he want to accomplish? Jamie O’Hara does not need to be here, and if it wasn’t for us taking matters into our own hands, he’d still be here. Unfortunately, these are the lengths we have to go to now in order to fix this place. This is what we have to do in order to make Voltage a better show, because we COULD have been in charge of this place for the entire month, but things didn’t go our way at Territorial Invasion. Now we’re stuck with the same Voltage we’ve been dealing with for the past few years. Now we’re stuck with Captain Charisma in charge of this place, making the same mistakes he’s been making for years. Now we’re stuck with the same corrupt management we’ve been forced to put up with since February, from threats of suspension, to being forced to compete in matches that we had no business being in. We’ve been dealing with that disrespect for months now. We even dealt with it heading into Territorial Invasion, and I thought that was what happened to Myles last week when he competed with a concussion.. But I guess I was wrong.
(Drake looks towards Myles as he says this, and after a moment Myles begins to speak.)
Myles: This doesn’t change everything else Captain Charisma has done though, and it definitely doesn’t change what we’re here to do. We promised that we’d make this company better and so far we’ve been doing everything in our power to reach that goal. Last week I did compete despite suffering from a concussion, and in the end things still worked out. Why? Because we are New Eden. We may not be working together in that tag team turmoil tournament, but we are doing everything in our power to make sure none of the other teams are able to leave that tournament with the victory. I could’ve told Captain Charisma that I wasn’t capable of competing that week, but instead I went out there and I did my job. I continued to show this place what it means to actually be a wrestler in a world where everyone is obsessed with all of the prizes and rewards, and in the process I made sure that Ryan Wilson and Alex Myers aren’t able to advance to the next round. They’re done with this tournament, and the “Blicky Roos” or whatever their stupid name was should be done with this tournament too, but for some reason Chris Elite was able to choose whoever he wanted to replace Jamie and just keep going. He didn’t just choose anyone, either. He chose someone who already had their time in this tournament. He chose someone who already had an opportunity and really has no reason to even be considered a replacement. He chose… Jake Smith.
(The booing continues, but it’s not as loud as before. After their actions last week, it’d be difficult to find someone on the roster more hated than the three standing inside of the ring. Drake just shakes his head knowing that Jake is in the tournament again, meanwhile you can just hear the disgust in Myles’ voice as he says Jake’s name.)
Myles: I don’t understand how this is happening, but at this point Captain Charisma letting his roster walk all over him is nothing new. I haven’t forgotten about what happened leading up to Bloodsport, where Jamie O’Hara was pretty much allowed to do whatever the hell he wanted, all because “he’s Jamie O’Hara.” I really don’t see why anybody in attendance would miss that man, but that’s besides the point. The point is, Captain Charisma is continuing to let this place become a shitshow, and like always we’re the only people that’s willing to step up and change that. Chris shouldn’t have been able to choose whoever he wanted, but at this point I really am curious. Of all the people on the roster, of all the people no longer in the tournament, or even those who weren’t in the tournament to begin with.. Chris, did you really think it was a good idea to choose Jake Smith of all people as your partner?
Minerva: I’m not sure if Chris Elite paid any attention to the bracket, but his next opponents in the tournament are myself, and Donovan Duke. The fact that Chris was given control over a tournament that was built on being completely random is bullshit, but here’s a reminder of what happened last time I was inside of the ring with Jake. I pinned him to the mat, and eliminated him from the same tournament he’s now getting a second chance in. It doesn’t matter if Jake’s partner is Holly Arrow or if it’s Chris Elite. They’ll both fall all the same, and this time Chris won’t have the Visual Prophet, SOSA Henderson, and Andre Walker running down to save him from failure. This time, Chris has no other choice but to come up short, just like he did when it was only the two of us fighting over the National Elite Championship. Chris would have been better off backing out of this tournament, but he made his choice. If he believes teaming up with Jake Smith of all people is the right choice, even if he’s done nothing but fail and let everyone that even associates with him down in recent memory, then that is perfectly fine with me. I said it before Chris’ new partner was even revealed, and I’ll say it again. Donovan and I will advance.
(As the crowd’s boos continue, Minerva looks down at her National Elite Championship, before dropping it down on the mat in front of her.)
Minerva: Not only will we be advancing in that tournament, but when it’s all said and done, this Championship is not going anywhere. It does not bother me that I’m defending it in a triple threat. Both Shane Gates and Kirk Redwood will just have to fall at the same time, because that contendership match never mattered, and neither did Shane’s complaints. No matter how badly those two desperately want their first piece of success, they’re not going to have it. You all keep trying to get rid of us, and every single time you fail. You fail, and just look at what happens in the process. Look at what happened at Pain for Pride. Look at what happened at Clash of Kingdoms. Look at what happened to Jamie O’Hara. This is not going to be any different. You all will continue to wish and hope for our failure, and you’ll only continue to be disappointed.
Drake King: Donovan Duke won’t be any different. He’s not leaving Voltage with the EAW Championship, and there’s nothing he can do that’ll change that. We already failed at Territorial Invasion, and it looks like the entire world celebrated that failure up until it cost them their “Ace”. We’re not about to just let this company completely fall back into the state it was in before. Donovan might be getting dragged through the tag team turmoil tournament, but that’s as far as things will be going for him. When we became New Eden, we promised that we’d stop these Championships from being a crucial part of the wrestling industry. At Pain for Pride, we took the EAW Championship, National Elite Championship, and even the Cash in the Vault briefcase from some of the worst people in the business. Now, very soon we’ll be doing exactly what we’ve already done for the last few free-per-view events. We’re going to continue making sure that this place only moves forward, not backwards. These matches shouldn’t even have to happen. These titles shouldn’t need to be defended. They shouldn’t need to be a thing in the first place, but as long as they ARE a thing, you’ll only ever see them in the possession of New Eden. You’ll see them with us for as long as it takes for this company to finally move on.
Myles: This place was always meant to be about passion. It was meant to be about your willingness to go out there and actually wrestle, but this company lost sight of that. Everyone lost sight of it, but like I said last week, we’re not done. We’re going to do everything in our power to fix this place, and it all starts with Voltage. We’re going to take Jake Smith and Chris Elite out of that tournament. We’re going to stop Shane Gates, Kirk Redwood and Donovan Duke from leaving Voltage with any of these Championships, and we’re going to continue doing what we’ve been doing this entire time, making sure Voltage becomes the best brand it could possibly be.
Minerva: That Stadium Stampede was far from the end of New Eden, and I’m sure Jamie O’Hara understands that more than anyone now.
(The boos once again grow extremely loud, which doesn’t bother Minerva, who had to have known at this point that mentioning Jamie would’ve drawn such a reaction after what they did.)
Minerva: Kirk Redwood, Shane Gates, Jake Smith, Chris Elite, and even my partner in the tag team turmoil tournament, Donovan Duke. Every single one of them will find themselves against New Eden very soon, and things will end the exact same way for all of them. None of them are going to get the outcome they wanted. None of them are going to find the success they were hoping for at our expense. We all know how this ends, and it’s the same way it always does. With no one but New Eden.
(Minerva stops speaking, and ‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer’ starts playing once again, as the National Elite Champion picks her title back up, and the three Elitists slowly begin to make their way out of the ring, all while the crowd continues booing.)
James Peters: :francis:
Rich Russillo: Well, at this point the only thing we can do is hope that these three don’t live up to their words. We lost Jamie O’Hara, but I think it’d be a pretty big deal if we see both of New Eden’s titles change hands in return!
Persephone: Honestly, I don’t think I can stress enough how tired I am of having to deal with these three. I think we’ll all be better off once they’re gone, mainly because then we won’t have to hear their annoying voices anymore. If losing the EAW Championship, National Elite Championship, and even spots in the tag turmoil tournament is what it takes for them to finally disappear, then I’m all for it. Shane Gates for National Elite Champ :mjlol:.
James Peters: There’s just no way that these three will be able to get away with what they did to Jamie. They’re going to get what they deserve one day. Hopefully, that day comes extremely soon.
(All three members of New Eden continue walking up the ramp as their entrance music is almost completely overshadowed by the boos from the crowd, and from there Voltage fades away from ringside and to a commercial break.)
(Voltage cuts to a promotional ad with Ronan Malosi, which doesn’t have any real purpose, but because he’s so rich he was able to afford the commercial time.)
(The camera pans to the ring with bell Braxton standing by ready to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! From Detroit, Michigan! Weighing in at 225 Pounds…. “THE XTREME CLASSIC” JUSTIN WINDGATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(High All The Time by 50 Cent starts to play throughout the arena as the crowd breaks out into cheers. Justin walks out and looks around before pointing to the ring, he then runs and slides under the ropes, getting back up and climbing the ropes pointing again to the crowd before moonsaulting back in the ring.)
James Peters: Justin Windgate is here, and this man has been on a tear on the Voltage brand as of late and is looking to make some noise in the Tag Team Turmoil and looking for some singles gold, he is one exciting wrestler to watch and brought home the victory for Voltage’s Team Brand Warfare!
Rich Russillo: There is no denying what he has done, and he is really coming into his own after being drafted here with some legendary matches already with some of the top stars in the business. I have to say that this match with a win here tonight will catapult him into something bigger!
Persephone: He is a pot head, he’s stupid, slow and irritating, why do you guys gas up these idiots, seriously!
(Justin continues to interact with the crowd, getting ready for his match when the music fades and it is replaced by “The Outsiders” by Eric Church as Donovan Duke slowly comes out determined and walking with purpose to the ring…)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent! He hails from Stillwater, Oklahoma! Weighing in at 212 Pounds…. “THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN”….. DONOVAN DUKE!!!!!!!!!!
(The crowd also shows some love for Donovan Duke who slides into the ring and walks around for a moment doing some exercises and preparations for the match, before looking out at the crowd and nodding.)
James Peters: And then there is Donovan Duke who is much in the same position as Justin Windgate in the Tag Turmoil and a man that is one of the best pure wrestlers in the industry today. This is going to be one of those matches that will be a real treat!
Rich Russillo: It really is, you have two great athletes, one is a high flyer and hybrid, the other is technical master, something has to give here tonight, but these two men are going to leave it all on the line and we are about to se what is on the marquee…. Wresting.
Persephone: Oh great, well wake me up when it mercifully over.
(Donovan looks ready as does Justin Windgate. The referee checks both men before calling for the bell and the start of the match.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(Justin Windgate and Donovan Duke circle the ring before they both shake hands. They soon lock up, Duke quickly reverses and gets behind Justin Windgate trapping him, driving his foot behind the knee of Justin forcing him to one knee but Justin with a quick hip toss, Duke though rolls through, gets back to his feet and charges in, but Justin again with an arm drag this time, Duke lands but rolls through he gets back to his feet and this time Justin charges in but Donovan side steps into a toe hold, rolling into a side headlock which Justin escapes out the back door, and Duke turns as both men look at one another and nod.)
James Peters: And this match has started with pure wrestling skill! Duke and Windgate so evenly matches, these two men have some pretty big matches coming up and want to impress as they head into Wicked Games and the next few weeks. This is definitely a match of wrestling here tonight and both men showing respect.
Rich Russillo: They really are, shaking hands and now they circle the ring and lock up again, Justin Windgate this time gets the upperhand pushing Duke to the ropes, though they have a clean break. They seem to really be respecting the rules of competition.
Persephone: Yeah and it’s boring. Like do something already!
(Justin and Duke again nod and lock up again, this time Duke drops to one knee, forcing the momentum and backing up Justin to the ropes, he breaks clean….)
James Peters: Irish Whip! Duke throws Justin against the ropes, BELLY TO BELLY! NO! Justin lands on his feet! Dropkick by Windgate! Duke falls, he quickly gets back up and another dropkick! This one stuns Duke, Windgate with a head scissor take over and brings him down to the mat!
Rich Russillo: But Duke is not down for long, kicking out and back to his feet with a kick up! That caught Justin by surprise! ENZINGUIRI BY DUKE! Justin stumbles and Duke now with the BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX! WINDGATE FLIES HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING AS TRHE FANS CHEER!
(The crowd erupts in cheers as Duke is back up, Windgate uses the ropes to get back to his feet, but Duke wraps his arms around the waist….)
Rich Russillo: GERMAN SUPLEX! NO! Justin puts the breaks! He wraps his leg around Duke to stop it! Switching behind Duke, he goes for a German Suplex, NO! Duke uses the momentum into a roil up!
Persephone: Just end this already, I mean who wants to see wrestling?
James Peters: :comeagain:
Persephone: Don’t look at me that way.
James Peters: Kick out by Windgate, he is back up, Elbow to Duke, who stumbles backwards, Justin hops off the ropes, flying clothesline and it connects! Duke is down and Windgate runs against the ropes, MOONSAULT OFF THE ROPES RIGHT ON TOP OF DUKE AND HE HOOKS THE LEG!
Persephone: He kicks out…. Booooring.
Rich Russillo: You wouldn’t be saying that if it was Rex McAllister wrestling in there.
Persephone: Well, no. He’s not a pothead or a midget, so yeah, watching him was dreamy.
(Duke is back up and Justin runs up to him with a Hurricarana but Duke doesn’t go over, holding his ground hoisting Justin up….)
Rich Russillo: POWERBOMB BY DUKE AND HE FOLDED JUSTIN LIKE AN ACCORDIAN! HE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: Another kick out but at least that one was better.
James Peters: Windgate escapes at two! Duke quickly traps the arm of Windgate and FUJIWARA ARMBAR! THAT IS ALL PAIN AND LOOK AT DUKE! HE IS WRENCHING BACK! DUKE WANTS THE SUBMISSION AND QUICK BUT WINDGATE IS TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES! THE DAMAGE IS ALREADY BEING DONE! IF DUKE CAN TAKE AWAY THE USE OF THE ARM SO EARLY THIS ONE WILL BE OVER QUICK!
Persephone: Just submit, stoner! But of course, he won’t because he is stupid and always high.
Rich Russillo: WINDGATE CAN’T TAKE TOO MUCH MORE OF THIS! HE NEEDS TO GET TO THE ROPES! DUKE IS RELENTLESS RIGHT NOW IN HIS PURSUIT AND THERE IS NOTHING WINDGATE CAN DO! HE MIGHT HAVE TO TAP HERE AS HE SLOWLY TRIES TO MOVE, BUT NO! WINDGATE IS ABLE TO REACH THE ROPES AND THE REFEREE IS TELLING DUKE TO BREAK IT!
Referee: (off mic) 1! 2! 3! 4! …..
(Duke breaks the hold and drags Justin back to the middle of the ring this time trying to administer an Ankle Lock but Justin twists and kicks Duke off!)
James Peters: We almost had a submission, and we can tell that Justin is favoring the arm, he is hurt and trying his best to put it all together but was able to use his legs to break the attempt by Donovan Duke applying the Ankle Lock! Windgate is back up and Duke smells blood in the water, he charges in, but Windgate with a Leap Frog! Duke turns SUPERKICK! FLUSH ON THE JAW AND DUKE IS STUNNED…. SPEAR! WINDGATE FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH THE SPEAR AND THE TIDE HAS TURNED ON THIS ONE! HE TRIES TO GO FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: OH, COME ON! SOMEONE END THIS TORTURE NOW!
Rich Russillo: What a match we have here with Duke kicking out! Windgate though is favoring that arm still! He picks up Duke, sets him up for a DDT… NO! DUKE WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS RELEASE SUPLEX! Justin against is in trouble, landing awkwardly on that arm! Duke though is hurt too! He is slow to get up, this time climbing to the top rope, what is he doing… MOONSAULT BY DONOVAN DUKE AND HE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: I hate both of these guys, kick out again. Come on already!
James Peters: We are seeing two wrestlers that have homed in their craft really come out on top and show just how good they are! Duke looks a little shocked at the kick out but is right on Justin, he tries to lock the arm again this time in a cross-arm breaker, but Justin clamps his hands, trying hard to survive the onslaught! Duke is putting on the pressure, trying to pull back but Justin continues to fight with all he has, reaching the ropes with his feet and the referee sees it!
Referee: (off mic) 1! 2! 3! 4! …..
(Duke breaks the hold, rolls backwards back on his feet, wincing a little after the spear. He waits for Justin to get up, wraps his arms from behind….)
Rich Russillo: Justin tries to pull his weight down, Donovan is trying to get him over, but Justin hangs on! Wait a reversal, Justin behind Duke, GERMAN SUPLEX AND HE BRIDGES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: DUKE KICKS OUT! Windgate is back up and he runs to the ropes, CALF KICK! That took Donovan Duke down! He is slowly getting back up, and Windgate waits for him, running at Duke, RUN IT UP AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE AND WINDGATE JUST TOOK OUT DUKE AND THIS HAS TO BE IT!
Persephone: PLEASE! COME ON!
James Peters: HE KICKS OUT! DUKE WITH THE SNEAK OUT THE BACK DOOR! Justin thought he has him, but he didn’t, and the match continues much to the chagrin of Persephone!
Persephone: This totally sucks.
James Peters: Windgate though cannot stop, though that arm is still hurting him, we noticed he did the Run It Up with the opposite arm this time. Picking Duke up, he sets up for a DDT…. NO! Duke rushes him into the turnbuckle! Justin hits hard on his back and neck! Stumbling forward…. DEALERS CHOICE! DUKE WITH THE SPINNING BACKFIST CAUGHT WINDGATE ON THE FACE AND HE IS WOBBLY! DRAWING DEAD! HE SPIKED JUSTIN ON THE HEAD WITH THAT AND THIS ONE IS OVER!
Persephone: You have to be kidding me! Come on! How the hell did Wingate get a shoulder up!?
Rich Russillo: JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH A SHOULDER AND HE IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS! Duke can’t believe it! He is looking at the referee holding up three fingers, but the referee is shaking his head holding up two instead! This has come down to these tow men trying anything and everything to get the advantage! Justin Windgate is in trouble though and look at the aggression of Duke! He picks up Justin, over the shoulder and SHOULDER BREAKER INTO THE CROSS-ARM BREAKER! JUSTIN IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! HE IS TRYING EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO HANG ON BUT HE IS SLOWLY ITCHING CLOSER TO TAPPING OUT!
(Windgate is ready to tap but he doesn’t, trying everything to reach the ropes. He then stretches but can’t do it, Duke continues to add pressure to the bad arm, until Windgate finally tries to roll to his side toward Duke able to get a knee under, he then presses forward and has Duke in a pinning predicament….)
James Peters: Donovan Duke is forced to let go of the hold! He almost found himself in a pinning predicament right there! He is back up though but Justin is hurt, Duke again relentless in his pursuit of trying to hurt the arm, he ties it up… Justin reverses, , he gets behind Duke, Russian Leg Sweep and Justin is back up, he quickly jumps on the ropes THE X-FACTOR! NO! DUKE GETS HIS KNEES UP! WINDGATE HITS THE KNEES AND IS WINDED! HE IS TRYING TO GRAPS FOR AIR AND DUKE TRIPS HIM UP….GAMBLER’S ROULLETTE! HE HAS THE BIG SWING ON JUSTIN AND LISTEN TO THIS CROWD IN GLASGOW!
Persephone: Okay even I am dizzy! Justin Windgate was swung twenty times! PIN HIM DONOVAN YOU MENTAL MIDGET!
(Duke catches himself a little dizzy too but Justin is down Duke runs against the ropes….)
James Peters: CANNONBALL ON JUST WINDGATE AND THIS ONE IS OVER HE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: I think I’m going to be sick.
James Peters: WINDGATE KICKS OUT! Donovan Duke is in shock and listen to the crowd here tonight! They are going wild here in Glasgow! Both of these men are putting their all here tonight and what a treat to see! What we are watching here is wrestling plain and simple and Donovan Duke looks like he is ready to end this once and for all, he waits as Justin is back to his feet, Duke runs against the ropes, CROSSBODY! HE USED HIS BODY AS A PROJECTILE AND JUSTIN IS DOWN! Donovan Duke is going for the arm again but no! Justin is able to retreat to the ropes! Duke though pulls him off and Justin lands on the mat!
Rich Russillo: Duke now going for the Ankle Lock, but Justin again kicks him off! Duke comes back at him Monkey Flip! NO! Duke lands on his feet, Justin kips up…. RIGHT INTO THE DUKE OF HAZARD! NO! JUSTIN IS ABLE TO GET OUT OF IT WITH A FLURRY OF ELBOWS AND DUKE STUMBLES SOME AND DROPS JUSTIN! DUKE TURNS…… THE CLASSIC ENDING!
James Peters: NO! DUKE PUSHES JUSTIN OFF AND HE HITS THE ROPES CHEST FIRST! BACKING RIGHT INTO THE DUKE OF HAZARD….. NO! JUSTIN IS ABLE TO TRAP THE ARMS AND HE FALLS BACKWARDS INTO THE CRUCIFIX PIN!
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH…. JUSTIN WINDGATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Duke springs up looking around at what happened at the referee who counted three. Duke sits there again in shock slamming the mat as Justin rolls away. High All The Time by 50 Cent starts to play throughout the arena as the fans cheer for the match as Justin leans against the ropes relieved that he was able to sneak out a victory while Donovan Duke sits there shaking his head.)
James Peters: WHAT A MATCH! I MEAN WHAT A MATCH! That was pure wrestling there! Both of these men when out there tonight and put it all in the ring in what we can best describe as a clinic! A wrestling clinic! That is what the fans were treated here tonight, and it came down to one move, and neither one of these men can be upset with the performances here!
Rich Russillo: No, they cannot, this was a match that showed off their talents, and while Persephone found this boring, it was a breath of fresh air to see these two really go out there and put it on the line! Justin Windgate escaped with a victory here tonight, but it could have gone either way.
Persephone: I’m just glad it is over, that was damn painstaking and absolutely boring.
(Justin and Duke stare at one another, when Windgate gets to his feet. He stands over Duke who stands up as well, both men stare at each other….)
Persephone: PUNCH HIM DUKE! KNOCK HIS BLOCK OFF!
James Peters: We have a stare down here.
Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke does not look happy.
(They continue to stare at one another when Justin offers his hand for a shake. Duke glares at him for a moment before they both shake hands, and the fans erupt in cheers. They nod to one another as Duke points to him and raises his hand, then rolls out of the ring as Justin who winces in pain from his arm points at Duke as well and claps. He then turns to the crowd who continues to cheer.)
Persephone: Ugh…. Give me a vomit bag.
James Peters: Sportsmanship just like we all want to see it! Duke and Windgate shaking hands after a great match and a show of respect from both men, a rarity here in the EAW!
Rich Russillo: Both men put everything on the line, big things for both, here on Voltage, what a great match!
(Justin Windgate climbs the ropes and raises his other arm in victory as Donovan Duke makes his way toward the back, he turns to see Justin celebrate, stops and turns, walking away.)
(Voltage fades to its final commercial of the night, which is a promotional ad for Playboi Carti’s upcoming “Narcissist” album, because once again, he is NOT mid.)
(Voltage returns to a shot of Bella Braxton in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLES MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
(Crowd repeats; ONE FALL!)
(‘Another Way To Die’ by Alicia Keys begins to play as the crowd sends a very loud, yet mixed reaction to Holly Arrow as she enthusiastically makes her way onto the stage, ready for this main event.)
Bella Braxton: FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALANNNDDDDD!!!
Persephone: AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE! YOUR COUNTRY IS FAKE BITCH!
James Peters: Mmmmm…wrong country?
Bella Braxton: WEIGHING IN AT 149 POUNNDSSSS, ‘HARDCORRRREEEE’ HOLLY ARROWWWWWWW!!
(The crowd gives her a roaring reaction down the ramp, some cheers, some boos, but everyone on their feet for Holly Arrow.)
James Peters: Holly knows how big this opportunity is for her and she has no plans to let it slip through her fingers. A win against the EAW World Champion in the main event of Voltage is absolutely massive for her. She knows that a win over Drake King, while not easily attained, will be the biggest step for her career thus far and Holly isn’t the kind of competitor to ever show up for anything less than an absolute war.
Rich Russillo: Not easily attained? That’s putting it lightly, she’ll have to be her best self to even challenge Drake King tonight, let alone beat him. There’s a reason he’s the champion and he has the kind of pedigree that he does on his belt. Drake is the realest of the real and tonight, Holly’s going to find that out.
(‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer begins to replace the sound as an booming sound of boos plays a stoic Drake King onto the stage. Dragging the EAW World Championship beside him, Drake shows up as cold as could be, business as usual for Drake King tonight.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT! WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUUNNDSSSS, WRESTLING OUT OF THE DEAD SEA, ISRAELLLLLLL!!! HE IS THE EAW WORLDDDDD CHAMPIONNNNNNN, DRAKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEE THE REDEEEEMMMEERRRR!!!
Rich Russillo: The real deal. The realest deal. The EAW World Champion, Drake King.
Persephone: Wow, you have his nuts so far down your throat right now.
Rich Russillo: Everyone can see how talented he is, but some would like to pretend that because they don’t like his personality or his message that this man isn’t the single-most talented wrestler on the planet today.
James Peters: He certainly has claim to it-
Rich Russillo: Claim? You can see the proof right there, he’s dragging it on the ramp. Drake is the best and tonight, Holly Arrow will need to go above and beyond to so much as catch Drake’s interest, to beat him? That’s virtually impossible. Drake is that guy, he’s smoking on top 5’s.
Persephone: No way this BITCH is in anyone’s top 5? LMFAO?
(Drake rolls into the ring and tosses the title aside. He tosses his jacket to the outside of the ring and readies himself.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: And our main event is underway! Drake King and Holly Arrow are live and in color on Voltage! Drake takes an extremely measured approach, Holly circling Drake, trying to gain an early advantage, but Drake is staying composed and not letting Arrow pressure him. She tries to lock-up, but Drake is able to slip around her and get into a side-headlock position! Drake with a tight headlock and he’s thrashing the neck of Arrow around!
James Peters: Holly is trying to shove this headlock off and slip free, but Drake is waking her around the ring like a dog! Now Holly bounces off the ropes and tries to bring Drake with her- Drake lets go of the headlock and lets Arrow bounce off the other side of the ropes, now blasting her with a lariat-
Rich Russillo: No! Arrow grabbed the arm of Drake and threw it back, now throwing a roundhouse kick of her own! Drake King ducks under that one and now grabs Holly’s head in a side-headlock again! Drake with the headlock hold, Holly once again tries to bound off the ropes and repel King off of her! It works but Drake charges after Holly and sends her tumbling over the top rope with a clothesline! Holly dumped to the outside and Drake doesn’t even bother going out there, he’s gonna stand his ground and invite Holly back into the ring!
James Peters: Drake King’s the champion for a reason, trying to out-wrestle this man is climbing everest. Question is, can Holly be one of those to actually do it?
Persephone: Clearly, by the look of things, she’s getting man handled right now. She should go back to beefing with midgets because she’s getting her ass whooped right now.
James Peters: She rolls right back into the ring and brings the fight to Drake! She goes for a forearm strike, Drake steps out of the way, but he’s nailed with a calf-kick on the way! Holly with a hard kick to Drake’s leg, kicking that calf out from under him, now jumping on Drake with a vicious forearm that sends him stumbling back into the corner! Holly drops a palm strike on the nose of Drake, and AGAIN! Two nasty strikes from Arrow, living up to that name, hitting the target and now trying to Irish-whip Drake King across the ring!
Rich Russillo: Not this time! Drake turns this around and whips Holly- BANG! He whipped her right into his own clothesline! Flooring Arrow and then wiping the trickle of blood from his nose from the palm strikes! Areas of Drake’s mustache already beginning to stain red from that small stream of blood coming out of his nose! Drake looks mad, he looks really mad! He stomps on the back of Holly Arrow and kicks her ribs as she tries to get to her feet!
James Peters: Drake allows Holly to use the ropes to get back to her feet, barely able to muster up the strength, but she gets there and immediately the champion is on her! A lion after his prey, Drake puts his boot against the neck of Holly and presses it hard against her windpipe, using all of the referee’s five count! Drake is feeling extra on-edge tonight and he’s showing it! That Territorial Invasion loss still pushes him to be as cold and as ruthless as ever!
Persephone: Yeah, he did lose, didn’t he? Because he’s a big fat fucking pussy and if he were a better champion, he would have disposed of this rat Holly Arrow already.
James Peters: Well he’s certainly showing a commanding performance right now- BOOM! As soon as I said that, the universe told me no! Spoke too soon because Holly landed a powerful elbow on the temple of Drake, now another and another! She’s got Drake covering up and now he goes for a big punch! She ducks under it and Drake falls into the turnbuckles, missing by a lot!
Rich Russillo: Now Holly Arrow with a knee to the midsection of the champion, that one puts him down to a knee and she follows with a shoot kick that lands flush on the back of Drake’s skull! That brutal shoot kick folded Drake and now Holly positions him in the corner, oh boy, OH BOY! SHE’S EYEING THAT RUNNING HIP ATTACK IN THE CORNER! HOLLY IS SO INVENTIVE!
Persephone: She needs to invent some breativity, fucking powerpuff girl!
James Peters: HERE SHE GOES! HOLLY ARROW FLYING ACROSS THE RING- Drake King rolls under the bottom rope at the last second and retreats to the outside, but Arrow is able to stop herself in time! She stayed on her feet and now is eyeing Drake King on the outside! Holly doesn’t care where he is, the onslaught will continue, she’s not letting up, she knows the chance in front of her tonight!
Rich Russillo: Holly bounds off the ropes AND TRIES TO SETUP THE TOPE CON-HILO!!! NO!! DRAKE ON THE APRON AT THE LAST SECOND, HE RATTLED AN ENZIGURI OFF THE FOREHEAD OF ARROW! Holly stumbles back and Drake re-enters the ring! He takes her back and grabs the wrist, now Drake is attempting his signature ripcord knee strike! Holly catches the knee before it lands and MUSCLES DRAKE UP! HOW IN THE WORLD?!? SHE’S HOLDING DRAKE IN HER ARMS AND RUNS HIM TO THE TURNBUCKLES! Perching the champion on the middle turnbuckle is Arrow, what power!!
Persephone: Wow! Steroids work for women too, had no idea!
James Peters: That might not have been the best idea for Holly, doesn’t she know?! Drake King is dangerous everywhere! She turns around and Drake meets her with a stiff boot to the face, NOW DRAKE KING STANDS UP HIGH AND FLIPS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH A BLOCKBUSTER THAT SLAMS HOLLY TO THE CANVAS! WHAT A MOVE FROM DRAKE KING, WHO TOOK HOLLY ARROW’S NECK TO HELL WITH THAT BLOCKBUSTER!!
Rich Russillo: What a move from Drake, who now watches as Holly painfully slides out of the ring and onto the floor! The crowd still boos Drake, but he closes his eyes and takes it all in! He’s absorbing all the energy, Drake feels the electricity tonight and he’s going to make a statement at Holly Arrow’s expense! A statement that New Eden will still rule! Drake King now has his sight focused dead on Holly Arrow, Drake is going to attack
James Peters: DRAKE RUSHES AGAINST THE ROPES AND NOW FLIES THROUGH THEM WITH A SUICIDEEEEEE DIVVEEEEEE!!!! WHAT ATHLETICISM FROM DRAKE KING, WHO GETS TO HIS FEET AND STARES DEAD INTO THE CAMERA! HE SMACKS IT AWAY AND GOES BACK TO HOLLY ARROW! NO ROOM TO REST WITH DRAKE KING! HE SLAMS HER BACK FIRST INTO THE APRON AGAIN AND HOLLY ARROW IS IN TROUBLE!
Rich Russillo: SHE HIT THAT BARRICADE WITH A THUD AND THAT WAS AFTER THE ALREADY POWERFUL SUICIDE DIVE FROM DRAKE!! Holly Arrow is in deep waters with the EAW Champion and she’s drowning right now!
James Peters: Freezing cold rushing river is more the image I’d use! She can’t keep her head above the water and my god, is this water cold! The coldest in all of EAW and it’s only getting colder! Drake grabs Holly by the neck and throws her under the bottom rope. Following her back into the ring and calling for her to get back up! Drake doesn’t want to wait, but Holly can’t get up! She’s badly beaten and already tired, this isn’t good for her-
Rich Russillo: SHE WAS PLAYING POSSUM! SHE GRABS DRAKE KING AND ROLLS HIM UP IN A SMALL PACKAGE PIN, OH MY GOD, HOLLY ARROW TO STEAL THE WIN!!!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, I THINK I JUST SHIT MYSELF!
Persephone: YOU WHAT?!
James Peters: SHE WAS SO CLOSE TO STEALING A WIN OVER THE EAW CHAMPION, HOLLY WAS JUST ON THE PRECIPICE OF THE BIGGEST WIN OF HER CAREER!! DRAKE KING LET OUT A HUGE GASP OF AIR WHEN HE CAME OFF THE CANVAS, EVEN HE DIDN’T KNOW IF HE HAD MADE IT IN TIME!!
Rich Russillo: NOW DRAKE LUNGES TOWARDS HOLLY, BUT SHE SIDETSPES AGAIN AND ROLLS HIM UP!!! OH MY GOD, ANOTHER PIN-
James Peters: NOT THIS TIME! DRAKE USED ALL HIS POWER TO QUICKLY ROLL THROUGH, NOW DRAKE GETS TO HIS FEET AND COMES BACK WITH A CRUSHING SUPERKICK TO THE CHIN OF HOLLY! A KICK THAT SNAPPED HER ENTIRE HEAD BACK AND DRAKE CATCHES HER BODY EBFORE IT HITS THE CANVAS, LIFTING HER UP AND SUSPENDING HER IN THE AIR!!!
Rich Russillo: NOW BRINGING HER CRASHING DOWN WITH A FALCONNNN ARROWWWWWWW!! DRAKE KING DELIVERS HIS OWN FALCON ARROW TO HOLLY ARROW AND THAT MAY BE THE ARROW THAT SHOOTS DEAD THE CHANCES OF HOLLY IN THIS MATCH! DRAKE GOES FOR HIS OWN PIN AND HE MAY HAVE TAKEN IT!!
James Peters: KICKOUT! NOW IT’S HOLLY WHO HAS TO POWER OUT! SHE KICKED OUT RIGHT AT 3 AND DRAKE THOUGHT IT WAS OVER! HE’S ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE, HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT WASN’T OVER!! BUT DRAKE KNOWS HE NEEDS TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD AND FINISH THE MATCH RIGHT HERE AND NOW! HE KNOWS HE HAS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY IN FRONT OF HIM
Rich Russillo: HE’S ABOUT TO! DRAKE GETS ON THE APRON AND NOW STARTS SCALING THE TURNBUCKLE! HE’S ASCENDING TO THE TOP, CLIMBING TO THE VERY TOP TURNBUCKLE AND LOOKING TO FLY! THE CHAMPION HAS SOMETHING BIG IN MIND!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE ON THE TOP ROPE- NO!!! HOLLY GETS TO HER FEET AND RUNS RIGHT INTO THE TOP ROPE! IT THROWS DRAKE OFF AND HE RACKS HIS GRAPES ON THE TOP ROPE! STRADDLING ON THAT ROPE LIKE A STRIPPER ON A POLE, DRAKE’S COCONUTS JUST FLEW UP INTO HIS LUNGS! DRAKE GOT HUNG UP ON THAT ROPE AND NOW HOLLY DRAPES HIS LEGS ON THAT TOP ROPE AND DRILLS HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A NASTY DDT!!
James Peters: A DDT OFF THAT TOP ROPE, GOOD LORD!! DRAKE JUST GOT DROPPED AND HE COULD BE CONCUSSED FOR ALL WE KNOW!! DRAKE GOT DESTROYED WITH THAT ROPE-HUNG DDT AND NOW IT’S HOLLY WHO HAS CHANGED THE TIDES! SHE’S THE ONE WHO IS SCALING THE ROPES THIS TIME AND HOLLY ARROW IS LOOKING TO PERCH HERSELF ON THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE!!!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING JUST BARELY STUMBLING UP TO CONSCIOUSNESS, WOBBLY LEGS BENEATH THE CHAMPION!! HE TURNS AROUND AND HOLLY ARROW FLIES THROUGH THE AIR WITH A CORKSCREW SENTON THAT FLATTENS DRAKE KING LIKE A PANCAKE!! WHAT A MOVE FROM HOLLY ARROW AS SHE GETS TO HER FEET AND STOMPS ON THE CANVAS! SHE’S FEELING THE PULSING ADRENALINE AND ELECTRICITY, SHE’S ON THE VERGE OF HER GREATEST VICTORY YET!
James Peters: WHY DIDN’T SHE GO FOR THE PIN?!?! SHE HAD DRAKE ON THE ROPES!
Rich Russillo: SHE KNOWS THAT WASN’T QUITE ENOUGH! DRAKE IS THE CHAMPION FOR A REASON AND IT’LL TAKE A TRUE KITCHEN SINK TO PUT HIS LIGHTS OUT!! EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES TO PUT THIS MAN DOWN FOR THE COUNT, BUT HOLLY IS SETTING HERSELF UP TO DO JUST THAT! HOLLY DROPS TO THE GROUND AND PUTS DRAKE IN THE ‘ULTRALIGHT BEAM’!!! WAIT-
James Peters: NO!!! IT ISN’T IN ALL THE WAY AND HOLLY ARROW CAN’T GET FULL CONNECTION! DRAKE IS FIGHTING THIS ‘ULTRALIGHT BEAM’ HOLD SO DESPERATELY, HE KNOWS THIS MATCH IS IN IMMINENT DANGER OF BEING STOPPED AT ANY SECOND IF HE PASSES OUT FROM THIS HOLD! NOW SHE GETS THE HOLD IN!! HOLLY ARROW TRYING FOR IT SO HARD- WAIT, LOOK AT THE CHAMPION!!
Rich Russillo: HIS RESOLVE IS SOMETHING ELSE! DRAKE GETS HIS LEGS UP AND HE MANAGES TO CHANGE ANGLES, NOW STANDING ON HIS FEET AND DEADLIFTING HOLLY ARROW UP IN POWERBOMB POSITION! DRAKE HAS HER IN THE AIR WITH THIS POWERBOMB POSITION AND NOW CHARGES ACROSS THE RING WITH A HUGE BUCKLE BOMB!! DRAKE DUMPS HOLLY ARROW INTO THE CORNER WITH THAT BUCKLE BOMB!!
James Peters: WHAT A COUNTER FROM DRAKE KING, WHO NOW FALLS TO HIS KNEES, HE’S STILL HURT FROM THAT NEAR ‘ULTRALIGHT BEAM’!!! BUT HE SEES HIS CHANCE, HE GRABS HOLLY’S ARMS AND TRIES TO HOOK HER IN FOR AN ‘ASCENSION’!!!

OH MY GOD, WHAT A COUNTER FROM HOLLY, WHO FELL BACK ONTO THE CANVAS AFTER, JUST GOING OFF INSTINCT ALONE!!!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE WAS DROPPED TO A KNEE AND HE’S ALL OVER THE PLACE, THAT ELBOW LIKELY SENT SOME OF HIS TEETH INTO THE FRONT ROW!!! NOW HOLLY GRABS DRAKE BY THE BEARD AND THROWS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! DRAKES CHIN CLATTERING AGAINST THAT TURNBUCKLE, HOLLY IS ATTEMPTING A DRAGON SUPLEX! A QUICK OFFENSIVE TURNAROUND FOR ARROW, WHO IS TRYING TO PRY DRAKE KING OFF THE ROPES!
James Peters: SHE CAN’T GET IT, NOW ATTEMPTING A SINGLE LEG BACKSTABBER! SHE LAUNCHES HERSELF AT DRAKE, BUT DRAKE SLINGS HER BACK AND HOLLY HIT THE CANVAS HARD! NOW DRAKE PEELS HER BACK UP AND MUSCLES HER UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, OH BOY, DRAKE WANTS TO TAKE THIS UP HIGH!

HE’S SO EXHAUSTED, HE DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HOLLY IS! DRAKE IS ASKING WHAT HAPPENED, HE CAN’T FIND HOLLY! HE ROLLS OUTSIDE THE RING AND MANAGES TO GRAB HOLLY, TRYING TO GET HER ON HER FEET, BUT HE’S SO TIRED!!
Rich Russillo: HE’S SPENDING ALL OF HIS ENERGY JUST TRYING TO GET HOLLY UP AND IN THE RING! HE GETS HER ON THER APRON AND SHOVESD HER UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE, A DEAD CARCASS AND DRAKE JUST NEEDS THE 3 COUNT! HE ROLLS IN AFTER HER AND DRAPES AN ARM OVER THE BODY, THIS HAS TO BE ALL!!
Rich Russillo: A FOOT ON THE ROPE! A FOOT ON THE ROPE! HOLLY GOT A FOOT ON THE ROPE, THAT ROPE SAVES HOLLY THIS TIME! IT MAY HAVE COST HER EARLIER, BUT IT SAVES HER NOW AND SHE’S STILL ALIVE! DRAKE KING CAN’T BELIEVE IT, BUT THAT WINDOW OF TIME ALLOWED FOR HOLLY TO RECOVER JUST ENOUGH TO HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO STAY IN IT!!
James Peters: THESE TWO ARE EXACTLY WHAT VOLTAGE REPRESENTS; TOUGHNESS! TRUE FIGHTING SPIRIT! THEY’VE BEEN THROUGH A WAR AND ARE STILL FIGHTING THROUGH THE IMPOSSIBLE! THIS SHOULD’VE BEEN OVER FIVE MINUTES AGO, BUT THEY’RE GIVING IT ALL THEY HAVE, LEAVING EVERYTHING ON THE TABLE TONIGHT!!
Persephone: HOLLY KNOWS IF SHE LOSES THEN SHE’S GOING BACK TO BEING THAT SAME INSIGNIFICANT LITTLE CUNT SHE ALWAYS WAS! AND DRAKE DOESN’T WANT TO LOSE TO SOME DUMB BITCH EITHER, THEY’RE BOTH PUSSIES!
Rich Russillo: WELL IT LOOKS LIKE DRAKE IS GOING TO STOMP HER HEAD INTO THE MAT ONE MORE TIME BECAUSE HE’S LOADING UP FOR ONE FINAL ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’!!! HE’S SIZING HER UP, WAITING FOR HOLLY TO GET TO HER KNEES! HERE GOES DRAKE, CHARGING FORWARD WITH FINAL ATTACK-
James Peters: HOLLY SIDESTEPS AND SHOVES DRAKE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, NOW GRABBING HIM AND THROWING HIM DOWN WITH A DRAGON SUPLEX! OH MY GOD, LIGHTNING FAST FROM ARROW!! NOW ATTACKING THE BACK OF DRAKE AGAIN WITH A SINGLE KNEE-BACKSTABBER! OH MY GOD, THAT ONE LANDED SO BAD THAT IT STOOD DRAKE STRAIGHT BACK UP AND HE FELL AGAINST THE ROPES! HOLLY SHOUTS TO THE CROWD AND LETS OUT A HUGE ROAR OF ADRENALINE, OH MY GOD!!!
Rich Russillo: HOLLY ARROW GRABS DRAKE ONE MORE TIME! POSITION HIM IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, COMING OFF THE ROPES-
James Peters: DRAKE WITH A SPINNING KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, NOW FLATTENING ARROW WITH A LIGHTNING FAST ‘ASCENSION’!!! HOLY HELL, HOW DID HE DO IT?!?! DRAKE SOARS OFF THE ROPES LIKE A LION AND DRIVES HER SKULL DOWN WITH A ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’!!! OH MY GOD, THAT’S GOTTA BE ALL SHE WROTE!!! HERE HE GOES, ONE FINAL TIME, FOR NEW EDEN!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: THAT’S IT!! DRAKE KING JUST BARELY MANAGES TO BEAT HOLLY ARROW TONIGHT!
(‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer begins to play, to the dismay of the crowd. Drake rolls off Holly and falls to the canvas in a heap.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, HERE IS YOUR WINNER! THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION, DRAKE THE REDEEMER!!
(Drake rolls out of the ring and snatches the title from the referee, then he tosses it aside and grabs his ribs. He walks around the ringside area and starts to make his way up the ramp, limping and wincing.)
Rich Russillo: What a war, Holly Arrow still hasn’t moved! These two left it all out there and both are leaving with scars! In the end, Drake King was able to preserve through the damage and stomp Holly’s night out with ‘Judgement Day’!
James Peters: You said it, this was a war. Grueling and cruel, but both competitors looked like exactly what Voltage looks for, violent, dedicated, passionate and ruthless!
(Holly is being helped to the ramp, but as soon as she looks up the ramp, Ms. Extreme, the Universal Women’s Champion, walks onto the top of the stage and the crowd goes absolutely bananas.)
James Peters: Is that…it’s Ms. Extreme. We know Holly Arrow and The Universal Women’s Champion exchanged words earlier tonight, but now, Ms. Extreme is out here!
Rich Russillo: Holly is barking at Ms. Extreme, even while injured, Ms. Extreme invites her on! OH BOY, THINGS ARE ABOUT TO POP OFF BETWEEN THESE TWO! HOLLY HUSTLES UP THE RAMP AND MS. EXTREME MEETS HER HALFWAY! THE BRAWL IS ON AND MS. EXTREME AND HOLLY ARROW ARE BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF EACH OTHER!
Persephone: OH MY GOD, I WANT TO GO HOME, BEAT HER UP ANOTHER TIME YOU GINGER CUNT!
James Peters: WELL, THAT DIDN’T LAST LONG! HOLLY IS TIRED AND BEATEN, MS. EXTREME IS KICKING A HOLE THROUGH HER CHEST AS SHE COWERS AGAINST THE BARRICADE! ARROW IS DEFENSELESS AND MS. EXTREME IS SHOWING HER THAT SHE DOESN’T CARE!!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE KING IS WATCHING FROM THE TOP OF THE RAMP AND MS. EXTREME DRAGS HOLLY BY THE AIR UP THE RAMP! THEY’RE ON THE STAGE NOW AND – OH NO! DON’T DO IT MS. EXTREME!!!
James Peters: THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION LAYS HOLLY OUT WITH THE TWIST OF FATE!!! THE SPINNING NECKBREAKER CONNECTS ON THE STAGE! SHE PLANTS HER ON THE STAGE AND DRAKE SMILES AT HER!!! OH MY GOD, MS. EXTREME LAID HER THE FUCK OUT!!!
(The crowd with a chorus of both boos and cheers as Holly lays lifeless on the stage. Drake looks at Ms. Extreme and bares a smile, rare from Drake. Ms. Extreme only gives him a look of stoicism as she starts to bark at Holly. Ms. Extreme then looks at Drake one more time and gleans a smirk.)
James Peters: Good god, this is horrific.
(Drake and Ms. Extreme smile as Ms. Extreme hoists her title into the air. The camera fades to black on that shot.)
(EAW logo buzzes.)
