(Voltage intro video plays featuring the song “33rd Blakk Glass” by SosMula & ZillaKami, and we open up to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Gold Coast, Australia with MASSIVE gold and white pyro firing off from the stage, the titantron, the turnbuckles, and an incredible spectacle of lights prompting the capacity crowd to give every ounce of energy behind their applause.)
Kawajai: WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE!!! What a huge show we have in store for you all tonight I don’t even know where to get started!
Nick Angel: We have a lot on the horizon, word on the streets is someone “special” will be making their arrival tonight and I can’t wait to see who it is! Any guesses Kawa?
Kawajai: Well I’ll stick with my era and say uhhh it’s Dark Demon!
Nick Angel: Yikes, I said special.
Kawajai: Alexander Da Vinci!
Nick Angel: Well that would certainly be a treat!
Kawajai: Ohhh… Cy Henderson!
Nick Angel: Awww man the possibilities are limitless and personally I can’t wait to find out who it is later tonight. But speaking of special guests…
(“I Am A God” by Kanye West hits to loud boos as Mr. DEDEDE emerges through the curtains and makes his way up the ramp.)
Kawajai: The versatility of this man never ceases to amaze me. One night he can be seen threatening to sexually assault a female competitor and we all look at him like some type of sick demented monster and then the next night he can be getting ready to lay down the law as the owner of this company and no one bats an eye.
Nick Angel: It certainly takes a special type of person to wear so many hats. As weird as that may be considering… well… there’s nothing cool or normal about what he said on Dynasty. But nonetheless he’s the guy who signs our paychecks so wooo go DEDEDE!
Kawajai: He’s out here on Voltage for the second week in a row for a similar reason as last week. To address the Commissioner of our brand Matt Daniels. But this time I’m hearing there will be “consequences” for last weeks confrontation with Prince of Phenomenal, I guess we’re going to find out ourselves.
(Mr. DEDEDE enters the ring and is handed a microphone, he signals for his music to end and stands in the middle of the ring waiting for the rawkus Australia crowd to settle down.)
Mr. DEDEDE: Ahhh, good ol Australia. You know I once knew a man from Australia, a few of them actually.
(The crowd cheers at the mention of their home)
Mr. DEDEDE: You wanna know what they all had in common? I ran them all out of EAW in my quest to make it a better place.
(The crowd boos)
Mr. DEDEDE: It’s no wonder they turned out the way they did though judging by how the rest of you people carry yourselves. All you dropkick flogs are good for is drowning yourselves in beer and using the word cunt. Having spent the last several days in this wasteland it just makes me that much more satisfied knowing what happened to your hero when I “glassed the cunt” and ended his EAW career. It’s almost poetic justice, my last stop being in his hometown before doing the same thing to his cocksucking bitch of a girlfriend Cumbucket Ella Ava, speaking of cunts.
(The booing gets even more intense)
Mr. DEDEDE: But I’m not here for that. I’m in chairman mode tonight. Because I see the way I’ve carried myself lately may have inspired my underlings like Matt to act the way that he has. He may see somebody of my stature asserting my dominance amongst the EAW roster while at the same time wearing these fancy suits and think that it’s a winning formula for just anybody, but it’s not. My name is Mr. DEDEDE, I am the only Mr. DEDEDE, meaning I am the only person who can carry myself the way that I do, and successfully do it. I’m the chairman but ironically I’m also the best wrestler in the company, I’m like a double edged sword that cuts with the incisiveness of a rare medieval times weapon crafted by the most elite of metalsmiths. Everybody wants to be The Gawd, but everybody can’t be that, and when you try to be that you have to accept the consequences that come with it. With that being said, it’s Matt’s time to face them.
(Mr. DEDEDE takes a deep breath)
Mr. DEDEDE: So in an inevitable situation that has been brewing for weeks, everything culminated last week where Matt finally had enough of being harassed by the Prince of Phenomenal and the two men came to blows. That’s right, the commissioner of Voltage put his hands on a talent. Sure POP started it and one would say “Matt has a right to defend himself”. However, contracts for Commissioners and General Managers have a special part in it for these types of situations. What I’ve come to notice over the years are the ones who are able to abide by them are the people who either aren’t former wrestlers, or the former wrestlers who have all of that out of their system and can contain themselves under pressure situations. That brings me to my next point, but I’d really like to bring Matt Daniels out for this one so I can address him in person. So Matt I know you’re out there old buddy, come on out!
(Moments go by as Mr. DEDEDE awaits, then suddenly “Waves” by Kanye West blasts off throughout the PA System to a loud pop as a concerned Matt Daniels rushes to the ring to talk to DEDEDE, the music dies down as he is handed a microphone and DEDEDE continues talking.)
Mr. DEDEDE: Matt.
Mr. DEDEDE: You know when I hired you earlier this year I won’t lie, deep down I kinda hoped for you to slip up and something like this to happen.
Matt: What the hell are you talking about? Slip up?
Mr. DEDEDE: Come on now man, you let POP play you like a fiddle. How could you let that dude get under your skin? You’re here (DEDEDE lifts his arm up) and he’s here (DEDEDE lowers his arm). Yet you let him drag you down to his level.
Matt: Look I understand that as the leader of this brand there are ways that I am supposed to conduct myself and in signing the contract to become the leader of this brand that I kinda disregarded that last week when I defended myself. But I really don’t care, I’m nobody’s punching bag, NOBODY.
Mr. DEDEDE: I hear that. But as you know, there’s gotta be consequences.
Matt: Consequences? You’re kidding me right now right? I’ve been handed the shit end of the stick ever since this new season began and you’re not helping. Let’s not forget, when LC made his return and brought back The Enterprise and claimed JUST AS MUCH ownership over this company as you did, it was ME who dethroned him and restored order.
Mr. DEDEDE: Actually it was Noah Reigner, Scott Diamond, and Devan Dubian. But that brings me to my point. You wanna group yourself in with the actual in ring talent so bad and my thing is… why don’t you just stop fighting the urge and become one yourself?
Matt: Woah slow down I’m not tr-
Mr. DEDEDE: Be real with yourself for a minute. I saw that look in your eyes last week, it was that same look, that same flare that I saw back in 2011 when you captured the World Heavyweight Championship at Road to Redemption. Don’t forget we were partners for a while, nobody knows you quite like I do. And if you ask me, you got some unfinished business here in EAW.
Matt: Nobody asked you though.
Mr. DEDEDE: You didn’t need to, but guess what. I’m TELLING you. It’s not really an option at this point. So here’s your consequences. You know when you made that huge declaration about Wicked Games being Voltage versus the world and you wanting to prove Voltage is the best brand. How about you lead by example. I may have accepted your offer but you should know that when dealing with me, everything comes with a price, and that price is the in ring return of Captain Charisma at Wicked Games.
(The crowd pops loudly at DEDEDE’s announcement)
Mr. DEDEDE: That’s right, at Wicked Games this little issue between you and POP will be settled once and for all in the only way you know how to settle things. In ring competition, for the first time in over SIX years. And no, you don’t have a choice, either you fight POP and end this mess or resign from your post promptly.
Matt: …..You know what, fuck it. I’ll do it.
(The crowd lets off an even bigger pop)
Matt: But for one night only, I’ll kick POP’s ass, and I don’t wanna hear anything about this ever again.
Mr. DEDEDE: Deal.
(The two men shake hands as “Waves” picks back up and Captain Charisma makes his way to the back. Mr. DEDEDE stands in the ring looking on.)
Kawajai: Talk about a blockbuster announcement! November 17th just got THAT much more interesting! The return of Captain Charisma for the first time in over six years! This is huge!
Nick Angel: Indeed it is, just think about it Kawajai, last time CC was in action you were a world champion in EAW and I was in AWL running smear campaigns on the company! Time sure does fly!
Kawajai: Man, Captain Charisma vs Prince of Phenomenal, the first match announced for Wicked Games. This is surely looking like an event that you won’t wanna miss!
(The rise and fall of DIVISION now available on EAW Network! Exclusive interviews with the likes of Maddox Ayres as he bails from the interview 8 minutes in because he got a call from his new job at McDonalds to come in.)
(Voltage comes back on air as Bella Braxton is seen standing in the ring)
Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first…
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill blasts through the arena speakers and Xander Payne comes out on the ramp with a disgusted look on his face. The place erupts in boos as Payne shouts insults back at the audience and gets in the face of fans in the front row as he makes his way to the ring.)
Kawajai: This is a match some are saying Xander Payne needs to win – he suffered a loss to Chris Elite at Battleground as some of you fans saw, he suffered a loss to Jackson Blayde on Voltage two weeks ago just after losing his New Breed Championship at Territorial Invasion.
Nick Angel: Alright, Kawa, lay off the guy a bit – we know he’s in a rut. But tonight, he’s facing the National Elite Champion, so he has a chance to not only get out of it, but make a statement.
(“What A Shame” by Too Close to Touch begins to play and the crowd pops, standing on their feet. Daryl Kinkade makes his way out to the entrance ramp to another big pop, with both his Unified Tag Team Championship on his shoulder and National Elite Championship on his waist. The crowd in Australia is loving Daryl Kinkade.)
Kawajai: The double champion, the most valuable elitist around right now, Daryl Kinkade has worked hard to get where he is and you can tell the fans couldn’t be more proud of him for it.
Nick Angel: Daryl Kinkade is an incredible athlete, an amazing wrestler, but we’ll see if he can overcome the power of Xander Payne…
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: Xander Payne isn’t waiting around! RIGHT HANDS to Daryl Kinkade from Xander Payne as he’s getting right to work in the middle of the ring. Payne whips Kinkade off the ropes… LARAIT! NO, Kinkade ducks the clothesline! Kinkade comes back…. POP-UP POWERBOMB!!!!
Nick Angel: NO, WAIT – COUNTER FROM KINKADE INTO A HURICANRANA. What a start to this match, Kawa! Xander Payne is right back to his feet delivering right hands to Daryl Kinkade, driving him into the corner turnbuckle. Payne whips Kinkade into the opposite turnbuckle… HE CHARGES!
Kawajai: KINKADE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Enzuguri! Kinkade hits the Enzuguri on Xander Payne, but Payne quickly rolls out of the ring, holding his mouth and checking if his lip is bloody. Kinkade, though… WATCH OUT! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE FROM KINKADE, what a move! And this place is going nuts! Kinkade is back on his feet now and he climbs the steel steps. Xander Payne is still down. What’s Kinkade thinking here, Nick – OH MY…
Nick Angel: STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM DARYL KINKADE TO XANDER PAYNE FROM THE OUTSIDE!
Referee: Five! …. Six!
Kawajai: The count is up to six now, the referee giving these men plenty of leeway in this match already, I’d say, Nick. I think that maneuver hurt Daryl Kinkade as well as he’s holding his ribs from that shooting star press from the steel steps. We heard Kinkade say we were going to see something we don’t usually see and he was right, Nick. Kinkade is finally back on his feet and rolls into the ring…
Referee: Eight! Nine!
Nick Angel: Oh!! – Payne makes it to the ring just in time… watch out, though, because Daryl Kinkade is on that top rope! MISSILE DROP-KICK! NO! XANDER PAYNE SIDE-STEPPED THAT DROP-KICK! Great awareness from Xander Payne! Look out, Kawa, Payne just picked Daryl up and threw him out of the ring… what’s he doing?! Payne grabs Kinkade now… IRISH WHIP INTO THE STEEL STEPS! A vicious thud against those steel-steps and Kinkade is hurt now, Kawa! Payne has Kinkade again… ANOTHER WHIP INTO THOSE STEEL-STEPS! That one sent the steel-steps flying!
Kawajai: Daryl Kinkade is arching his back now, screaming out in pain – that clearly hurt his back. Xander Payne is right back on the attack now, however, and he’s… he’s dragging Daryl Kinkade across our announce desk! Jesus! Xander Payne… THROWS DARYL INTO THE BARRICADE! I don’t think this is even a match anymore, the referee is on the outside of the ring not even making the count, trying to get Xander Payne to get back into the ring. Xander Payne… he just pushed Bella Braxton and grabbed a chair! What the hell is he thinking?!
Nick Angel: Well the referee is calling this off, telling him he’ll be disqualified if he doesn’t put the chair down. Xander Payne should know better and should’ve stuck with his attack. After some arguing with the referee, Payne throws the chair right at us! Are you okay, Kawa?!
Kawajai: WATCH OUUUUUT! DARYL KINKADE JUST WALKED THE BARRICADE AND PUT A TORNADO DDT RIGHT ONTO XANDER PAYNE HERE ON THE OUTSIDE!
Nick Angel: WHAT?!? I can’t believe Kinkade was back on his feet, let alone cat-walking the barricade to DDT Xander Payne seemingly into oblivion! We’ve got to see that back on replay. What a move. Daryl Kinkade is back on his feet. The referee is on the outside trying to usher both men back into the ring instead of counting the damn match like he’s supposed to!
Kawajai: Daryl Kinkade lifts Xander Payne’s carcass into the ring and he’s going for the cover. This could be the match!
Nick Angel: Xander Payne isn’t going down that easy – this man is hungry and he wants this match, he knows he needs this match. Daryl Kinkade is back on his feet, though, prepared to strike at Xander Payne… Kinkade goes for a right hand on Payne, but Payne blocks it! SEEING RED! SEEING RED – THE DISCUS PALM STRIKE! XANDER PAYNE FALLS DOWN FOR THE COVER!
Kawajai: DARYL KINKADE GETS THE SHOULDER UP AND STAYS IN THIS MATCH! Xander Payne is frustrated, pounding on the mat – he’s clearly winded. He wanted that to be the end, but it’s not. This match is still going and he’s going to need to do more if he wants to put Daryl Kinkade away, Nick. Xander Payne climbs back to his feet, hanging to the ropes. Payne is staring at Kinkade who is also stammering back to his feet from across the ring. Payne charges Kinkade and begins to rain down fists onto the lower back of Kinkade… and he Payne locks on a headlock onto Daryl! He locks on a standing headlock! Wait…
Nick Angel: Yes, wait! Daryl Kinkade with an elbow to Payne… another one, Payne lets go and backs away from Kinkade … Kinkade runs towards the ropes! DKO!!!!!! SPRINGBOARD CUTTER! But Daryl Kinkade rolls backwards… HE LOOKS ON THE DRAGON SLEEPER! WORKING OUT THE KINKS!!!
Kawajai: DARYL KINKADE HAS THAT HOLD LOCKED IN, NICK! XANDER PAYNE IS HELPLESS HERE! … HE CAN’T HOLD ON! … HE TAPS! XANDER PAYNE TAPS!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, he’s Norfolk’s Finest… the National Elite Champion, DARYLLLL KINKADDDDEEEE!
Nick Angel: Xander Payne is now sitting in the corner holding his hands to his face – he can’t believe what just transpired. Daryl Kinkade has his arm raised in victory after a great performance, as we expect these days from out double champion.
Kawajai: Xander Payne is now pounding on the mat out of frustration. The ‘fall of Xander Payne’ has been mentioned but surely you have to wonder what Payne’s next move is after yet another loss following the loss of the New Breed Championship.
Nick Angel: On another note, last week we were graced with an amazing main event bout between Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr which saw the two partners go head to head in what would determine the sole holder of the National Elite Championship. Let’s take a look at how that went down.
(Recap of last week’s Voltage plays showing Daryl vs Charlie and Daryl successfully defeating Charlie with Osamu watching.)
(Charlie Marr is seen walking backstage with his half of the Unified Tag Team Championships on his shoulder as Daryl Kinkade suddenly comes running behind him to catch his attention)
Daryl: Charlie wait up!
(Charlie slows down as he notices Daryl behind him)
Charlie: Oh hey Daryl.
Daryl: Hey, I’ve been trying to reach you just to see if everything’s still cool between the two of us. I know Matt put us in an awkward situation where we had to fight one another to determine the sole National Elite Champion, but honestly it was coming eventually.
Charlie: Oh yeah I’m not sweating that one bit. The best man had to win, and last week that man was you. Congrats to you. This doesn’t throw a wrench in the MarrKade brotherhood don’t you worry about that one bit.
Daryl: That’s great to hear, it’s always good to know that I still have my brother by my side.
Charlie: For sure. I wouldn’t have wanted to lose that title to anybody BUT you. Now you go onto be the best damn National Elite Champion this company has ever seen while I continue to dominate in my own ways and when we come together to defend THIS (Charlie lifts up the tag title), we’ll just be that much more unstoppable.
Daryl: That’s the spirit, I’m 100% with you, I might be the sole National Elite Champion but MarrKade is still my priority because that’s where it all started and I wouldn’t be where I am had it not been for MarrKade. And I have no doubts you’re going to do great things on your own.
Charlie: Of course I am, you know me. But you’re the one with a championship defense pending against that Chinese dude, I think I kicked his ass back in NEO or something and sent him packing, so this is nothing. He wouldn’t have been able to defeat either of us.
Daryl: I mean he seems like a great competitor, I just look forward to having a great competitive bout against him.
Charlie: gReAt CoMpEtItIvE bOuT. Get real Daryl, he’s going to want to kick your ass and you should want to do the same. The respect goes out of the window when it comes to defending your title, you gotta do whatever it takes even if it means getting a little dirty.
Daryl: You know that’s not my thing Charlie. I do things my way you do things yours and that’s what makes us as dynamic of a duo that we are. My formula hasn’t failed me yet so I have faith that it will continue leading me to success.
Charlie: I’m just saying man, one day somebody’s going to take that kindness for weakness and try to exploit it.
Daryl: That’ll be the day they learn a valuable lesson I guess.
Charlie: I guess. Well either way, I guess Matt thought it was cute to book me in a match against Osamu tonight. I’m guessing had I won last week it’d be you facing him this week. But like I said, he can’t beat the either of us any way you slice it. When I face him I’ll make sure to soften him up and expose him for the weak bitch that he is. It’ll be smooth sailing for you from there.
Daryl(nervously laughing): I appreciate the gesture Charlie but I think I got this on my own. Just go out there and show him that MarrKade can beat him fair and square. I’ll do the rest.
Charlie: No promises haha, but alright man. On another note I hear about this Grand Prix thing they’re bringing back…
(Charlie and Daryl continue talking while walking down the hall as the camera fades)
(Camera transitions back to ringside)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!!!
(“Eyes On Fire” by Zed Dead hits the PA system and the number one contender for the National Elite Championship begins to make his way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring first… From Osaka, Japan.. Weighing in at 234 pounds.. OSAMUUU!!!! ARCICHIDAAAA!!!!!!
(The crowd pops huge for Osamu Arcichida. “Osaka’s Greatest” greets the fans on his way to the ring. As he gets to the ringside area, a small group of about three girls draws his attention. They are all dressed in Charlie Marr T-shirts, holding up signs of support for EAW’s resident blue eyed, bearded bad boy.)
SIGN: CHARLIE MARR MAKES EAW GREAT AGAIN
SIGN: SANDWICH ME MARRKADE
SIGN: FUTURE MRS. CHARLIE MARR
(They are also screaming awful things at Osamu Arcichida. He simply shakes his head, and gets inside the ring. His music fades out and is soon replaced by “It Aint Safe” by Skepta. Charlie Marr walks out onto the stage with his Unified Tag Team Championship strapped around his waist, and the ovation he gets is a rather mixed one.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from TOWER HAMLETS, LONDON, ENGLAND…weighing in at 240 pounds…. He’s one half of the reigning EAW Unified Tag Team Champions… CHARLIE!!!! MARR!!!!
(Controversial comments from Marr since before Territorial Invasion have left the EAW Universe in their feelings towards this man, but there’s no denying the talent he has, and the untapped potential that is there. Whatever negative reaction he receives as he walks down to the ring is soon replaced by ear piercing shrieks of those Marr fangirls who were harassing Osamu Arcichida during his entrance. Charlie acknowledges them with a cocky smirk, and the girl with the future Mrs. Charlie Marr sign practically faints. Charlie climbs into the ring and poses with his championship for a few moments before settling in and getting ready for the match to begin.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: This match is officially underway and both men are circling one another. Arcichida looks extremely unimpressed by the presence of one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, and honestly I don’t blame him. Marr’s comments this week were completely unacceptable. Matt Daniels needs to take some course of action in regards to Charlie Marr and his mouth.
Nick Angel: Ehhhh, he was just trying to get inside Arcichida’s head. It’s all in good fun. Look. Charlie is even extending his hand to Arcichida as a peace offering.
Kawajai: Well I don’t think the number one contender to the National Elite Championship is willing to make peace. He’s refusing to shake Charlie Marr’s hand and I don’t blame him.
Nick Angel: I think that’s just a sign of poor sportsmanship on the part of Osamu Arcichida. Now Charlie is offering him a hug, and Osamu steps between the ropes. Are you kidding me? Charlie Marr is trying to apologize! Accept the man’s apology Osamu!
Kawajai: Charlie Marr does not have an apologetic bone in his body so stop.
Nick Angel: Osamu back in the ring, but the official is standing between the two men. Charlie Marr once again attempts to make peace by extending his hand but Osamu Arcichida shakes his head. What a shame.
Kawajai: Eye poke right behind the referee’s back! Charlie Marr never wanted to make peace! He just wanted a cheap shot! He moves the official out of the way and drives his knee into Arcichida’s gut, forcing him back into the corner. Marr is all over Arcichida, hitting him repeatedly with European style uppercuts. Arcichida tries to fend off Marr, but right now Marr is choking his opponent. The official has to step in and Marr waits until the absolute last second to break the choke. Marr doesn’t relent for long, though. He kicks Arcichida in the stomach and grabs him by the neck. Charlie looks to plant Arcichida into the mat with a DDT, but Arcichida fights him off. Charlie whips around for a clothesline, but Arcichida evades that as well. Arcichida with a drop kick and Marr goes crashing to the mat!
Nick Angel: Arcichida down on the mat with Marr. The two of them are exchanging chain wrestling holds, both wanting to grab the upperhand early in this match. Arcichida has the waist of Marr locked, but Marr is strong. He is forcing both of them back up to their feet. Marr grabs Arcichida in a headlock, but Arcichida is able to elbow his way out of it and flip Marr back down to the mat. He grabs the arm of Marr, looking to work on Charlie’s wrist. But Charlie Marr rolls through it and forces them both back to their feet again. Marr pushes Arcichida back against the ropes, but Arcichida reverses their positions and now it’s Marr who is at the disadvantage. Arcichida drives his knee into Marr’s midsection and forces Charlie into the corner.
Kawajai: OOOOOH!!!! Those chops though! The Unified Tag Team Champion is having his chest absolutely destroyed right now by those knife-edge chops from Osamu Arcichida!!!
Nick Angel: Marr firing back though! He’s absolutely lighting up Arcichida now! Both men are chopping the hell out of one another!!! What an exchange between these two Voltage superstars and now Arcichida is firing off a series of kicks to Charlie Marr. Marr fires back with a series of his own kicks and both men are just destroying one another right now. This match is breaking down into a brawl right now, and fists have started to fly. The official is trying to gain control but listen to this passionate Australian crowd. They love this!
CROWD: LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT!
Kawajai: Arcichida has Marr on the mat and he is driving his elbow into Marr’s nose. Arcichida doesn’t let up until he draws blood and the tag team champion is bleeding now. I don’t know if Marr’s nose is broken or what, but Arcichida is definitely attempting to send a message to Daryl Kinkade right now. Arcichida jerks Marr up by his glorious beard and sends him back down with a snap suplex. He drops an elbow across the throat of Marr and goes for the cover.
Nick Angel: KICKOUT by Charlie Marr! Marr seems to have just realized he is bleeding from the nose and as Arcichida pulls him up, Marr rakes him across the face. Marr checks his nose and shakes his head, clearly not pleased that Arcichida drew first blood in this match. Marr drives his shoulder into Arcichida and forces him back into the corner. He begins putting the boots to Osamu Arcichida until he forces him into a sitting position. Marr presses his boot against Arcichida’s face and grabs the ropes for support. The official forces the break and Marr responds by leveling Osamu Arcichida in the head with a stiff kick! Arcichida slumps over and instead of dragging him to the center of the ring for the cover, Marr goes to the apron of the ring. He pulls Arcichida through the ropes and drags him to his feet.
Kawajai: CHARLIE MARR IS SETTING UP OSAMU ARCICHIDA FOR THE QUEEN IS DEAD!!!
Nick Angel: DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT TO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING!!!!!!!!! Charlie Marr drops down to the ground and smirks, absolutely eating up the reaction from this sold-out crowd. His small little group of fangirls in the front row are beside themselves right now as their blood covered hero just destroyed Osamu Arcichida on the ring apron.
Kawajai: But Marr is wasting so much time right now by enjoying the crowd’s reaction to him. He needs to get himself and Arcichida back in the ring and go for the cover!
Nick Angel: But that’s not his plan. Marr is grabbing Arcichida off the ring apron and dragging him over to the ring steps! Marr attempts to drive Arcichida into the steps but Arcichida gets the foot up! Marr tries again… but Arcichida with another block! Marr is getting frustrated and he jerks Arcichida back by the hair. Arcichida spits right in Charlie Marr’s face! Marr is furious right now and swings wildly at Arcichida! Arcichida deflects the shot! HE HEAD BUTTS CHARLIE MARR! DROP TOE HOLD! MARR GOES CRASHING INTO THE RING STEPS FACE FIRST!
CHARLIE MARR’S NOSE IS PROBABLY BROKEN AT THIS POINT AND OSAMU ARCICHIDA IS NOT EVEN REMOTELY DONE RIGHT NOW. HE GRABS MARR BY THE BEARD AGAIN AND DRAGS HIM OVER TO WHERE CHARLIE’S FANGIRLS ARE! THE GIRLS ARE PLEADING WITH OSAMU TO LEAVE THEIR BABY ALONE, BUT OSAMU ISN’T ABOUT TO DO THAT!!! CHARLIE MARR INSULTED AN ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE THIS WEEK AND ARCICHIDA WANTS TO MAKE HIM PAY. HE TOSSES CHARLIE INTO THE BARRICADE AND BEGINS KICKING THE CRAP OUT OF HIM. OVER AND OVER OSAMU ARCICHIDA LANDS HIS KICKS RIGHT TO CHARLIE MARR’S FACE!!!!!
Kawajai: THE OFFICIAL IS OUT OF THE RING AND HE IS PULLING OSAMU ARCICHIDA OFF OF CHARLIE MARR!!!!! MARR SLUMPS DOWN TO THE GROUND WHILE THE OFFICIAL IS ORDERING OSAMU TO GET THE MATCH BACK IN THE RING.
Nick Angel: NEITHER OF THEM ARE PAYING ATTENTION TO CHARLIE MARR THOUGH! MARR IS UNLACING HIS BOOT AND PULLING SOMETHING OUT!!!! HE SLIPS A PAIR OF BRASS KNUCKLES INTO HIS HANDS AND TIES HIS SHOE BACK. HE SLUMPS BACK OVER AS IF HE’S STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THAT ATTACK FROM OSAMU ARCICHIDA!!!
Kawajai: THIS FREAKING GUY!!!!! OSAMU ARCICHIDA IS MAKING HIS WAY BACK OVER TO CHARLIE MARR WHILE THE OFFICIAL IS GETTING BACK IN THE RING! OSAMU GRABS CHARLIE AND THERE IT IS!!! MARR WITH A HUGE RIGHT HAND TO THE JAW OF OSAMU ARCICHIDA! HE SLIPS THE BRASS KNUCKLES ON AND SLAMS HIS FIST RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES OF OSAMU ARCICHIDA. ARCICHIDA IS KNOCKED OUT! ARCICHIDA IS KNOCKED OUT! CHARLIE MARR SHOVES THE BRASS KNUCKLES BACK INTO HIS BOOT AND SLIPS INTO THE RING!!!! HE GRABS THE OFFICIAL AND SCREAMS AT HIM TO START THE TEN COUNT!
Nick Angel: THE REFEREE LOOKS AT WHERE CHARLIE IS POINTING AND A LOOK OF CONFUSION CROSSES HIS FACE! CHARLIE IS YELLING AT HIM TO START COUNTING!!! THIS OFFICIAL KNOWS SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT! IT’S HIS JOB TO COUNT THOUGH! CHARLIE MARR IS IN THE RING AND OSAMU ARCICHIDA IS ON THE OUTSIDE! HE HAS TO COUNT WHETHER HE WANTS TO OR NOT!
Nick Angel: Finally the referee is doing what he’s paid to do!
Kawajai: That smirk across the face of Charlie Marr is absolutely sickening.
Kawajai: The fact he is already celebrating his victory!
Nick Angel: Wait… is Osamu Arcichida moving?????
Kawajai: OSAMU ARCICHIDA IS SITTING UP. HE DOESN’T SEEM TO KNOW WHERE HE IS AT THE MOMENT. CHARLIE MARR HAS HIS BACK TURNED AND IS CASUALLY LEANING AGAINST THE ROPES.
Nick Angel: ARCICHIDA SHAKES THE COBWEBS OUT AND LOOKS UP AT THE RING.
Kawajai: ARCICHIDA CRAWLS TOWARDS THE RINGS= AND IS USING THE STEPS TO PICK HIMSELF UP.
Nick Angel: CHARLIE TURNS AROUND AND THE LOOK ON HIS FACE IS OF PURE SHOCK. OSAMU ARCICHIDA PULLS HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kawajai: CHARLIE MARR CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT OSAMU ARCICHIDA IS BACK IN THIS RING! THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION IS REACHING FOR THOSE BRASS KNUCKLES HE STASHED AWAY BUT OSAMU STUMBLES FORWARD AND SWEEPS CHARLIE OFF HIS FEET. HE BEGINS PUNCHING CHARLIE MARR IN THE FACE AND THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION IS DOING HIS BEST TO FEND OFF OSAKA’S BEST! MARR IS ABLE TO KNOCK OSAMU OFF HIM AND HE SLIPS OUTSIDE THE RING! CHARLIE MARR RUNS TO WHERE HIS FANGIRLS ARE AND PUSHES THEM TO THE SIDE. HE GRABS ONE OF THEIR CHAIRS! OSAMU RUNS TO HIM AND CHARLIE THROWS THAT CHAIR RIGHT AT HIM! OSAMU ARCICHIDA CATCHES IT BUT CHARLIE HITS THE CHAIR WITH A DROPKICK! THE CHAIR SMACKS OSAMU IN THE FACE AND HE GOES DOWN!!!! CHARLIE SNATCHES THE CHAIR UP AND HE BEGINS BEATING ARCICHIDA WITH IT! THE OFFICIAL IMMEDIATELY CALLS FOR THE BELL BUT CHARLIE MARR DOESN’T EVEN CARE! OVER AND OVER HE SLAMS THAT CHAIR INTO OSAMU ARCICHIDA!
Nick Angel: “CHARLIE PROMISED HE WAS GOING TO SOFTEN UP ARCICHIDA FOR HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER, BUT HE IS TRYING TO END ARCICHIDA RIGHT NOW! HE DRIVES THE TOP OF THAT CHAIR INTO ARCICHIDA’S GUT AND ARCICHIDA IS SPITTING UP BLOOD! CHARLIE PLACES OSAMU’S HEAD INSIDE THE CHAIR AND CLIMBS UP THE RING STEPS!
Kawajai: DARYL KINKADE IS RUNNING DOWN THE RAMP, SCREAMING AT CHARLIE TO STOP! CHARLIE WAS ABOUT TO DIVE OFF THE RING STEPS AND SNAP OSAMU’S THROAT IN HALF. THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS ARE YELLING AT ONE ANOTHER ABOUT HOW TO HANDLE THIS SITUATION, AND DARYL IS LITERALLY TELLING CHARLIE THAT THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO GO! CHARLIE IS SCREAMING AT DARYL TO STOP BEING SO SOFT-HEARTED.
Nick Angel: DARYL STEPS OVER THE FALLEN FORM OF OSAMU ARCICHIDA AND CHARLIE CAN NOT BELIEVE THIS. HE DROPS DOWN FROM THE TOP OF THE STEPS AND TELLS DARYL HE IS BEING RIDICULOUS. DARYL IS TELLING CHARLIE THAT THIS NOT THE WAY HE WANTS IT TO GO. CHARLIE SHAKES HIS HEAD, CLEARLY ANNOYED THAT DARYL IS INTERFERING IN HIS BUSINESS.
Kawajai: THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS ARE LOCKED IN A STARE DOWN AND FINALLY CHARLIE JUST THROWS HIS HANDS UP. THE FORMER CO-NATION ELITE CHAMPION TURNS HIS BACK ON DARYL AND STORMS TO THE BACK!!!!
Nick Angel: Wow. That escalated in a hurry and Daryl has now turned his attention to Osamu Arcichida. He removes the chair from around Osamu’s head and helps up the challenger for his title. Arcichida looks a little worse for the wear, but he takes Daryl Kinkade’s extended hand and gives it a sh-
Kawajai: OSAMU SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO DARYL KINKADE’S STOMACH!!! OH MY GOD! HE WALKS HIM UP THE RING STEPS, GRABS HIM INTO POSITION…. NO! NO! NO! NO! MUSCLE BUSTER!!!! MUSCLE BUSTER!!!! OSAMU ARCICHIDA JUST DROPPED DARYL KINKADE WITH A MUSCLE BUSTER ACROSS THAT CHAIR DARYL JUST SAVED HIM FROM!
Nick Angel: WOW…. I’M SHOOK. DARYL LITERALLY JUST SAVED OSAMU ARCICHIDA FROM HIS OWN PARTNER, AND THIS IS THE THANKS HE GETS FOR THAT!
Kawajai: I don’t even know what to say right now, Nick. Osamu Arcichida narrowly escaped being put on the shelf at the hands of Charlie Marr and repays Daryl Kinkade for saving him by dropping him. This entire situation around the National Elite Championship is completely out of control.
Nick Angel: We have to break right now, too. We’ll be right back, folks!

(Matt Daniels is seen in his office with Frank Ocean blasting and he’s looking at old matches of himself such as Captain Charisma vs Mak for the EAW Championship at Pain for Pride II, suddenly a knock is heard on the door and he pauses everything.)
Matt: Come in! Oh wow, long time no see man.
(Woogieman walks into the office as his appearance solicits a loud pop from the audience)
Woogieman: Yeah, I wonder why that is.
Matt: What do you mean?
Woogieman: Well I mean the proof is in the pudding. I haven’t been booked on this show for how long even though I’m supposed to be the face of this brand and it’s top champion? Excuse me, bhampion.
Matt: You know what, you’re absolutely right and for that I apologize. I have the perfect gift for you to make it up to you though.
Woogieman: Oh really? What’s that?
Matt: A main event match, next week here on Voltage!
Woogieman: Oh now you’re talking my language. Who am I facing?
Matt: It’s a surprise, you’ll know soon. But the title is on the line and just know, this will be your toughest challenge yet, I hope you’re ready.
Woogieman: Oh I’m always ready for new competition. Thanks for this Matt! I’ll definitely put on a show for the fans who missed me.
(Woogieman excitedly walks off as Matt continues what he was doing.)
(The camera transitions over to Sofia Clarke on standby)
Sofia: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome my special guest at this time, all the way from Showdown… Malcolm Jones!
(The crowd boos as Malcolm steps into the frame)
MJ: What’s good ma.
Sofia: Great to have you here tonight on Voltage, and competing in action at that! I must ask, what brings you here?
MJ: The question that’s been asked all week. It’s this simple, Matt Daniels threw out the challenge to the rest of EAW to come get this Voltage smoke and you know I’m with the shits, I want all the smoke so I ain’t passing up any opportunities to run anybody’s fade. That and well… I just wanna rub it in Heart Break Boy’s face when I do what he failed to do at Pain for Pride which is defeat the Prince of Phenomenal in singles action.
Sofia: Sounds like a two birds with one stone type deal.
MJ: I like the way you think, you can say that.
Sofia: So I’ve been meaning to ask you- (Sofia then puts her hand to her ear as she’s receiving a message)
Sofia: I’m soooo sorry Malcolm. I am now getting word that this “special guest” has finally arrived here tonight and he’s pulling up to the parking lot right now. Follow me guys!
(MJ stands there looking dumbfounded as the camera takes it’s attention away from him and follows Sofia who’s rushing to the parking lot.)
(Sofia and the camera crew arrives to the parking lot where a sea of other reporters and camera men are waiting in anticipation. After a few moments, a Seattle Supersonic themed 2018 Ferrari 488 pulls up to the scene, the windows are tinted so nobody sees who is in the vehicle until the door opens and a foot steps out, suddenly you can hear a bunch of cameras flicker as the photographers notice the person, and more noise amongst them. The door opens all the way as we finally get a chance to see who the man inside is, and suddenly we can see that Impact is the man stepping out of the car.)
Sofia: Impact! Impact! Welcome to Voltage, but what brings you here tonight?!
Impact: I got some things I wanna accomplish, Voltage is full of the best collection of talent this company has to offer and there’s no better place to assert my dominance than in the place I finished my Season 11 in knocking off that Aussie scum.
(A loud collection of thunderous boos can be heard after Imp’s remark)
Sofia: What are some of these things you have in mind?
Impact: What do you want me to do, give some politically correct answer like “I just want to compete and put on great exhibitions for the fans and earn their respect!”. I don’t give a shit about anything outside of world championships. If I have to come to Voltage and win the World Heavyweight Championship, and then Showdown to win the EAW Championship, and then back to Dynasty to win the Answers World Championship that should be mine in the first place and hold them all simultaneously and become the only 10 time world champion in EAW history then you better bet your ass that’s what I’ll do. But right now Voltage is my focus. I’m here to let Matt Daniels know he doesn’t have to keep reaching building his brand around these wonderbreads, he now has a sure thing he can rely on.
Sofia: I think I speak on behalf of Voltage when I say we are glad to have you back! And I speak on behalf of the rest of EAW when I say I can’t wait to see what you bring to the table here in this new scenery!
???: That bitch don’t speak on behalf of me.
(A shocked Sofia turns around to see Malcolm Jones arriving to the scene as him and Impact exchange dirty looks)
MJ: So this the fuckboy you bailed in the middle of our interview to talk to? This old ass bozo who can’t even beat Cameron Ella Ava? Imagine leaving the new wave for this fossil.
Impact: You better watch your fucking mouth first of all. I don’t know what your deal is, maybe you have abandonment issues or something but you got one more time to disrespect me and I’ll-
MJ: You’ll what? Do something pussy.
Impact: You know what? I’ll catch you on the flip side. I’ll let you get your teeth kicked down your throat by HBB and I’ll be back to collect the scraps. I’d treat lightly if I were you, and I’d pay attention to Operation: Doomsday, because that’s what the future holds for you. Anyways, watch my car I’ll be back in an hour.
(Impact tosses his keys at MJ and walks into the building as MJ tries to go after him but he’s stopped by the large crowd of people and a backstage agent pulls him to tell him he has a match to get ready for)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first…
(“Pray for ‘Em” by Meek Mill plays as the crowd boos. Malcolm Jones makes his way out, cocky and abrasive as ever.)
Kawajai: Well whether you want to call this a preview of ‘Wicked Games’ or Malcom Jones proving something to HBB over on Showdown, this is a match many are excited to see. One of the best of Showdown and one of the best of Voltage battling it out. Territorial Invasion season is over and we’re still seeing great matches like these, Nick.
Nick Angel: Get it right, Kawa – this is Malcolm Jones proving something to HBB. He wants to prove he could do what HBB couldn’t do at Pain for Pride and that’s defeat POP right in the middle of that ring.
(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray begins to bump through the sound system and the crowd pops for POP. POP walks out in his signature hoodie with a skull mouth mask on his face.)
Nick Angel: Last week POP defeated the Openweight Champion, Lars Grier, after a competitive match. This week he has to get through Malcolm Jones while also arguably fighting on behalf of Matt Daniels’ Voltage tonight, Kawa!
Kawajai: You’re just trying to stir up trouble. POP is fighting for himself tonight, fighting to prove why he’s in the main event on Voltage and why he’s a contender for Rex McAllister’s World Heavyweight Championship. It is time!
Nick Angel: Malcolm Jones and POP circle each other in the ring, trying to get a feel for one another. POP puts his hand out to test the strength of Malcolm Jones but Jones slaps the hand away and uppercuts POP right in the mouth! POP returns the favor, however, delivering a forearm to the face of Jones… and Jones retaliates with another, very, very stiff uppercut to the jaw of POP and this shot sends him wobbling backwards, Kawa… Jones bounces off the ropes and lands a huge drop-kick to the chest of POP! POP doesn’t stay down for long, however, but Jones is already bouncing off the opposite side of the ropes… RUNNING SWINGING NECK BREAKER ON POP FROM JONES!
Kawajai: Jones is proud of himself for that move, Nick, as he’s tautning the crowd here in Australia. Wait… POP KIPS UP! FACEBUSTER ONTO MALCOM JONES! I don’t think Jones was expecting that kind of resilience from POP, but he displays it here on Voltage week in and week out. POP is going right back to work on Jones now, hammering him with right forearms. POP whips Jones into the turnbuckle, but Jones counters and whips POP into the turnbuckle… WATER WHIP! NO! POP dodges out of the way. Jones turns around and POP kicks him in the gut. SIT-DOWN POWERBOMG TO JONES FROM POP! ANOTHER HUGE MOVE!
Nick Angel: Yes, Kawa, POP is pulling out the stops right now. He goes for the cover!
Nick Angel: NO! Jones is still very much in this match. POP, however, is again right back on the attack. POP puts Jones between his legs again and he lifts him up once more! Another powerbomb?! NO! FRANKENSTEINER ONTO POP FROM JONES! A HUGE MOVE FROM JONES…
Kawajai: THE COVER!
Kawajai: NO. That was a huge counter from Jones that potentially kept him in this match and POP just barely got the shoulder up after that Frankensteiner. Jones is holding his neck and making his way back to his feet but POP seems to be out cold from that huge move. Jones climbs through the ropes and makes his way to the top turnbuckle. POP is still lights out in the middle of the ring. Jones taunts the crowd and points at POP with both of his hands… THE RE-UP! LEG-DROP ON POP! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!
Nick Angel: POP GETS THE SHOULDER UP AGAIN! A great leg-drop from Jones but it isn’t enough to put POP away. POP rolls towards the rope as Jones argues with the referee about the two count he was just given. It was close, I agree, but the referee didn’t get to three, Kawa!
Kawajai: No, he didn’t, but Jones is going to belabor the point regardless here. After Jones finishes with the referee, he charges toward POP who is now hanging onto the ropes while standing on the apron outside of the ring. Jones grabs ahold of POP’s head… PELE KICK! POP delivers a pele kick to Malcolm Jones which sends him stumbling backwards. POP springboards… FOREARM SMASH!! NO, JONES CAUGHT THE ARM OF POP… THE CUBAN LINK! JONES HAS A COBRA CLUTCH LOCKED IN ON POP!!!
Nick Angel: Jones has the Cuban Link locked in and it looks like this match might be over… POP can’t get to the ropes, they’re in the middle of the ring! POP is struggling now; Jones is wrenching in that hold trying to get POP to tap out. He won’t do it! POP would rather have a broken arm than tap right now!!! POP uses his momentum and creates a bridge even as his arm is locked into this submission! POP rolls out of the Cuban Link!!!
Kawajai: Jones still has a hold of that arm, though… he whips POP into the corner turnbuckle. JONES CHARGES!! WATER WHIP!!! JONES CONNECTS!!!
Kawajai: POP KICKS OUT AGAIN! WOW! I can’t believe POP was able to kick out after that sequence but somehow, someway, he managed to do it – unbelievable! This is incredible performance from POP but he needs to get some offense in, Nick! Jones is back on his feet and charges POP again but POP retaliates this time with huge right forearm. Another huge forearm from POP connects to the jaw of Jones! Jones stammers backwards but POP lands a kick right to the stomach of Jones… he puts Jones between his legs! No, back body drop to POP on Jones! POP is sitting up now… Jones runs off the ropes… SHOTGUN DROP-KICK FROM JONES TO POP!
Nick Angel: Jones goes for the cover one more time!
Kawajai: NO!!! Malcolm Jones wants to finish this match badly, he wants to do what he said he was going to do and come here and beat POP but POP continues to manage to stay in this match huge maneuver after huge maneuver. Jones picks POP up by his hair and slaps him in the face, sending him back to the mat. This crowd is booing Jones, now, as he taunts them. He doesn’t care! Jones picks POP up again, but this time POP strikes Jones in the stomach with a forearm. Another huge forearm to the stomach of Jones!
Nick Angel: POP stands up… JONES WITH ANOTHER DROP-KICK TO POP! But POP kips up yet again! What the hell! POP is on fire tonight; Jones can’t put him down. Jones charges toward POP again and strikes him with a huge clothesline which nearly turns POP inside out. BUT POP KIPS UP YET AGAIN!
Kawajai: Jones goes for an uppercut… POP blocks it! POP with a huge forearm to Jones, another huge forearm… POP WITH ANOTHER FACE BUSTER TO JONES! POP gets right back to his feet, though… what’s he doing, Nick?!
Nick Angel: POP puts Jones’ head between his legs and puts his arms out!! Could this be it?! CROWN OF THORNS!!! NO!!! MJ struggles as POP picks him up and manages to get back on his feet… he backs away from POP… JONES KICKS POP! AND HE PUTS HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS!!! … THE L-TRAIN!!!!! A CANADIAN DESTROYER FROM HELL! HE COVERS POP!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, “The Rose That Grew From The Concrete Jungle”, he is… MALCOLMMMMMM JONESSSSSSS!
Kawajai: What a win for Malcolm Jones! He did what he came here to do and I’m sure HBB was watching every minute of it, Nick.
Nick Angel: I’m sure he was. POP has to be pissed about how this match ended!

(Voltage comes back on air as Jackson Blayde is shown walking backstage accompanied by Cherise, as he notices the camera following him and stops to begin speaking.)
Jackson: Didn’t see you there. But since I got your attention I might as well put some excitement into your lives by giving you my very valuable and much sought after attention, consider yourselves lucky. I’m hearing that people are confused with the sudden change and want answers. Why isn’t Blayde with The Enterprise? Where did Cherise come from? Well it’s simple. The Enterprise is no longer because our insecure power abusing jackass of a General Manager pulled some strings backstage to prevent LC and I from ganging up anymore. That’s fine though, LC is still a great friend and I still owe him for helping bring me back to EAW and seeing in me what no one else did at the time, and that is the fact that I am the future of this damn company. They say behind every great man is a great woman, that is where this beautiful young lady Cherise comes into play. You hadn’t heard from her in over a year but you better believe that you’ll be hearing from her a lot more for a long time to come. I’m honored to be accompanied by a woman of the stature of Cherise, a veteran in this business, and someone who will lead me to even higher heights.
Cherise: No the honor is all mine. A lot of people have asked me “Cherise why didn’t you just return back to Empire what’s so special about Blayde?”. I mean just look at him. Would you pass up standing side by side with this hunk of a man to rub elbows with a bunch of carpet munchers every week? Get real. I’m a part of something great now, a man who in the future will go down as a multiple time world champion, will be on all of the media, and then some. Guess who’s going to be right there behind him the whole time? You guessed it, m-
??: Didn’t you lead him to a loss last week?
(Xander Payne appears in the frame as an annoyed Cherise attempts to step to him before Jackson Blayde steps in front of her and addresses Xander)
Jackson: Tell me this is a joke.
Xander: The only joke I see is you.
Jackson: No, seriously. I’m being prank’d right guys? The little pipsqueak, figuratively of course, has the nerve, the audacity, the GALL! To stand in front of me of all people…… TO TALK ABOUT LOSSES.
(Jackson and Cherise bust out laughing)
Jackson: Are we watching the same product? Have you looked in the mirror lately? Don’t answer that second question we know you haven’t. But what I’m saying is…. you haven’t tasted a win in lord knows how long. What was your last victory? Versus VIP or some shit? Not only that, but I beat you just two weeks ago, and you of all people have the nerve to talk to me of all people about losses. Didn’t you just lose to Daryl minutes ago?
Xander: I sure do. That cheap victory over me means jack shit and if you give me a chance to prove that I bet you I’d kick your ass in a heartbeat. You can call me what you want and make fun of the slump I’ve been in but one thing I haven’t done is hid behind a legend… or a BROAD, to mask my flaws.
Jackson: I’ll tell you what, you name the time and the place and I’ll be there, now get out of my face. Just looking at you for too long makes me wanna hit the treadmill.
Xander: Funny, it won’t be so funny when you’re laying on your back like your little girlfriend does whenever she runs into a real man.
(Xander walks off as Cherise and Jackson look on unbothered, the camera goes back to ringside where Kawajai and Nick Angel can be seen at the commentary table)
Kawajai: Switching gears, last week EAW’s very own VIP was able to score backstage and red carpet access to the American Music Awards! It was then where he caused a whole bunch of ruckus and had to be escorted out by security.
Nick Angel: Okay slow down hold on, I have so many questions right now. First of all what business did VIP have at the AMA’s and why was he escorted out? :skip:
Kawajai: Well from what I hear, he had connections to Drake, leveraged that into tickets.. and then he ran into Adobe House on the red carpet and well… I think the footage can explain better than I can..
(Camera shows the AMA red carpet where Adobe House artists Collar John and Elias are seen posing for pictures as VIP disguised as a photographer, he has a camera in front of his face and several camera flashes are flashing so the artists can’t see him, it is then where several obscenities can be heard yelled at the direction of the artists)
VIP: Adobe House Records trash! Y’all suck! I use your CD’s as weed plates and frisbees!
(The artists stop posing for pictures as they look around trying to see who’s saying stuff)
(VIP continues yelling at them and starts throwing things before he’s bumrushed and escorted out by security)
VIP(being escorted away): YOU CAN BLOCK ME BUT YOU CAN’T BLOCK THE TRUTH! 2PAC STILL ALIVE! LIL B THE BEST RAPPER! ADOBE HOUSE IS UNDERGROUND BACKPACK RAP TRASH WHY THEY AT THIS MAINSTREAM SHOW ANYW-
(The security try to cover his mouth while he fights them off and the camera fades back to the commentary table where Kawajai and Nick Angel look disappointed at what they just saw.)
Kawajai: If the expressions on our face don’t tell enough of a story, then I would like to verbally express how disgusted I am at the actions of VIP. On behalf of EAW I would like to send an apology to the AMA’s for the way one of our own conducted themselves at your event. What has become of VIP lately with this obsession and infatuation with that group in particular is beyond be, but somebody needs to do something about this soon.
Nick Angel: Speaking of which, I’m hearing that we have a special guest on standby backstage let’s switch over to see what’s going on..
(Camera transitions to Lethal Consequences standing by with Sofia Clarke, he has an Adobe House Records shirt on and a calm look on his face)
Sofia: My guest needs no introduction, as you can all see who I’m accompanied by. Let’s get straight to business LC, what is going on in the world of LC since the fallout of Territorial Invasion?
LC: Well as you can see, I’ve been subjected to attacks by groupies and bitter stans. I don’t mind the fact that I lost at TI, I mean I know when I first came back I said I need to be in power in order to protect myself from The Man™ fucking me over again. But I think what sets me apart in this run from others, power aside, is the fact that I’m aware and ready for whatever comes my way this time. What happened in the past was in part my fault due to me being naive and giving this company the benefit of the doubt to do the right thing, I already expect to get fucked over eventually and but really, you only get fucked over if you aren’t expecting it. I’m not dwelling on that anymore though we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. I have new matters at hand I need to take care of.
Sofia: Which brings me to my next question. All on the internet and mainstream media was this viral clip of the group that you heavily promote, Adobe House, being subjected to an attack by a man you defeated two weeks ago in VIP. Could this be connected somehow?
LC: Of course it is. I beat the cunt fear and square and now he’s reacting to the L like a little kid lashing out. You think I give a damn about the musical opinion of a man who still dresses like it’s 1995 and listens to Drake and thinks Lil B is a good rapper? Shout out to The Bay tho. But no, get real, he’s just doing shit to get my attention and trying to fuck with my money. Bad news for him is, smear campaigns only work when it’s coming from someone who people actually care about. ?
Sofia: So in the event that VIP continues his antics, which I have a feeling he will. How will you respond?
LC: I’m going to kick his ass when I run into him plain and simple. That’s really why I came here but word on the streets is he bailed and went back to that shithole known as Toronto the moment he found out I was going to be here tonight. So VIP if you’re watching, you can do all the antics you’d like, but sooner or later you’re going to have to come back to LC’s World, when you do… there won’t be any escape.
(LC walks away as the camera fades to black)
(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters begins to play as Devan Dubian emerges to the ramp to a huge pop from the crowd. He walks down the ramp and enters the ring as he waits for his partner.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a tag team match schedule for one fall. Introducing first, from Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing 230 pounds… DEVANN DUBBBIANNNN!
(“Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem begins to play as Noah Reigner walks out onto the stage to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Evelyn Ridley follows close behind him. He then makes his way to the ring to join his partner.)

Bella Braxton: And his partner, from Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing 265 pounds…. THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION… LARRSS GRRIEERRR!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Nick Angel: The Tag Team main event here tonight on Voltage is now underway. Each team decides who will begin this match and it appears to be Lars Grier and Noah Reigner doing so for each of their teams. Both men survey the landscape. Lars Grier is the bigger man here and he utlizes that size advantage. He forces Noah Reigner into the corner and delivers several blows right to the midsection. He steps back and charges for a clothesline which Noah quickly avoids. He gets behind Lars and drop kicks him! Lars goes chest first into the corner! Noah now runs up on him and grabs him from behind. He seems to be attempting a german suplex but Lars hits him with a few elbow shots to break his hold. Noah backs up as Lars charges him for a clothesline! NOAH DUCKS AND RUNS BACK TOWARDS THE CORNER! HE HOPS ONTO IT AND SPRINGBOARDS AND CATCHES LARS GRIER WITH A CROSS BODY THAT SENDS HIM DOWN!
Kawajai: What an exchange that was. Noah stands over Lars here. Both of these men are two of EAW’s brightest young stars. Noah steps back as he plans out his next move before Lars can recover. He runs towards the grounded Lars and hits a sliding forearm smash! He quickly hops back up. He now stomps Lars right in the gut. He now continues this assault with another attempt at that sliding forearm smash but Lars sits up! He hops to his feet just as Noah Reigner does and takes him down with a running clothesline! Noah is quick to get back up and fires a right hook at Lars but the Openweight Champion stops him there as he blocks it. He knees Noah in the midsection! He straights him up and fires some knife edge chops that staggers Reigner. He spins Noah around and grabs his waist… BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX! HE HITS IT PERFECTLY AND THE COUNT BEGINS!
Nick Angel: NOAH QUICKS OUT! Both men begin to get up and Lars catches Noah with a side head lock! He now leads him to his corner and he tags in Rex! REX ENTERS THE RING AND DELIVERS A SHOT RIGHT TO THE RIBS OF NOAH! NOAH FALLS BACK AND REX EXECUTES A SPINNING WHEEL KICK THAT KNOCKS NOAH DOWN! Rex McAllister now rolls Noah over onto his midsection… THE REX LOCK! HE’S GOING FOR THE STF! NOAH FIGHTS BACK AND MANAGES TO ROLL OVER AS HE KICKS REX AWAY! NOAH HOPS UP AND GRABS REX! HE SETS HIM UP FOR A SUPLEX BUT REX COUNTERS HIS MANEUVER!
Kawajai: REX DELIVERS A SHOT TO THE RIBS! NOW HE CONTINUES WITH A ELBOW TO THE JAW OF NOAH! NOAH IS STUNNED AS REX TAKES THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CHARGE HIM WITH A RUNNING JUMPING DDT! HE ABSOLUTELY PLANTS NOAH RIGHT THERE! Noah is down as Rex has established control over this match. Noah wills himself to his feet and Rex throws a few fists his way! He grabs Noah and I believe he’s going for a Tilt a Whirl Back breaker but Noah headbutts him! NOW HE GRABS HIM AND SETS UP A SUPLEX! HE GOES WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS VARIATION! REX HITS THE MAT AS NOAH NOW HAS SOME BREATHING ROOM!
Nick Angel: Devan Dubian is eager to enter this match. NOAH WASTES NO TIME MAKING THE TAG AS DUBIAN ENTERS THIS MATCH! FIRST THING HE DOES WHEN ENTERING THE RING IS DELIVERING A LEAPING KNEE DROP ON REX! It connects! Dubian now rolls over Rex and applies the Camel Clutch. No doubt trying to wear Rex down here! He wrenches back and Rex is trying to escape but before he can, Dubian relinquishes the hold! Rex stumbles to his feet and Dubian rocks him with a european uppercut! He now throws Rex onto the apron. He pulls him through the ropes and grabs him… DUBIAN IS READY FOR IT! ROPE HUNG DDT! HE HITS IT ON REX! HE NOW PULLS REX TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING! HERE’S THE COVER!
Kawajai: The world champion kicks out! Dubian seems eager for him to get up. I think we know what he has planned. Rex is up and here goes Dubian… BLEEDING EDGE! HE ATTEMPTS THE BLEEDING EDGE BUT REX PUSHES DUBIAN AWAY! DUBIAN RUNS BACK AT REX BUT HE CATCHES DUBIAN WITH A TILT A WHIRL BACK BREAKER! DUBIAN’S BACK GOES STRAIGHT INTO THAT KNEE OF REX! Rex now straightens up Dubian and pulls him in! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND BRINGS HIM DOWN FOR A SUPLEX! HE NOW POSITIONS HIMSELF AND GRABS DUBIAN BY THE WAIST AND CARRIES OUT A GERMAN SUPLEX! REX HITS IT FLAWLESSLY AND KEEPS IT GOING! HE PICKS UP DUBIAN WHILE MAINTAINING HIS HOLD AND ATTEMPTS A SECOND CONSECUTIVE GERMAN SUPLEX! DUBIAN GOWNS DOWN AGAIN!
Nick Angel: Rex is being relentless! He pulls up Dubian again and is seeking it for a third time. This time Devan fights back as he elbows Rex which momentarily stuns him. Dubian breaks the hold… DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! REX GOES DOWN! Dubian stumbles for a moment as he’s still feeling the effects from those suplexes. He approaches Rex who crawls towards his corner… AND HE TAGS IN LARS! LARS CHARGES IN AND HE CATCHES A RIGHT HOOK FROM DUBIAN! HE KICKS HIM IN THE GUT AD PROCEEDS TO GRAB HIM… HE LIFTS HIM UP AND DROPS HIM DOWN RIGHT ON HIS KNEE FOR A VICIOUS GUT BUSTER! Lars now forces Dubian back to his feet who surprises him with a series of elbows. Lars is knocked back… AND HE EXPLODE WITH A BIG BOOT THAT SENDS DUBIAN DOWN!
Kawajai: Dubian may have a concussion after that! He barely manages to pull himself up with help from the ropes. He stumbles towards Lars who charges him once more… AND DUBIAN CATCHES HIM WITH A QUICK SCOOP SLAM! BOTH MEN GO DOWN! DUBIAN NOW CRAWLS TOWARDS HIS CORNER AND TAGS IN NOAH REIGNER! Lars pulls himself up as Noah comes at him and Lars jumps up with a european uppercut to the jaw of Noah! He follows up with another one! ONE MORE! AND ANOTHER! HE STEPS BACK AND HITS A LOW RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPER CUT! THE GRIER MONTAGE BY LARS! NOAH GOES DOWN!
Nick Angel: Lars pulls Noah up to his feet as he picks him up… HE ATTEMPTS THE CROOKED SIXPENCE! NOAH FIGHTS BACK AND HE SLIDES OFF OF LARS SHOULDERS! NOAH LANDS ON HIS FEET AND CATCHES LARS WITH A PELE KICK! NOAH HITS AN OUTSTANDING MOVE AS HE MAKES THE COVER!
