(EAW intro plays.)
(As usual, the show fades into a highlight video that highlights all the Voltage Elitists and their escapades at the most recent supershow, Battle of Egypt.)
(The video fades into the triple threat match highlighting Rex McAllister and his two opponents, Chris Elite and Drake King. The match itself was dominated by Rex early on, but all three men would pour their heart and soul into the ring. All three would have multiple pinfall attempts and the action was nothing short of intense. The ending would see Elite get curb stomped by King, right as Rex was in the process of powering out of a submission hold. Drake would hit Rex with ‘Miller Light’ but Elite would hit Drake with a superkick, and connect with his 650 senton on Rex, picking up the win the triple threat.)
(Heavenly Hell versus Extreme Valentine is the next match that is showcased. The Unified Tag Team Champions would have the match firmly in hand until Ms. Extreme is able to make the tag to Andrea. Andrea would come in and get things back on track for 2/3s of the War Games winners, but as Andrea would go for the victory, Charlie Marr and Veena Adams would make their presence felt. The two would cause a distraction that would allow Constance Blevins to pin Andrea and get Heavenly Hell yet another win.)
(History was made for the women as Kassidy Heart became the first woman to defend a women’s championship in Egypt when she faced off against the living legend, Kendra Shamez. Kassidy and Kendra would put one another through hell and back in Kassidy’s most intense championship defense to date. The Queen of the Ultraviolent would emerge victorious, forcing Kendra to submit to ‘Gawd’s Gift’. After the match, Raven Roberts would show up, Cash in the Vault briefcase in hand, and cash in on the Universal Women’s Champion! A Talon kick and Raven’s Wings later, the Voltage Elitist would capture her first ever world championship.)
(Battle of Egypt concluded with a dream match of sorts. Answers World Champion, Mr. DEDEDE, would take on Voltage’s EAW World Champion, Charlie Marr, in a dream match of sorts. The two polarizing figures would do their best to constantly one up each other during the match, even turning it into a hardcore affair. Blood would be spilt. Lines would be drawn. But when all was said and done, and despite the valiant fight he would put up, Charlie Marr would fall to Mr. DEDEDE.)
(The highlight video fades out and we cut to live footage. The sold-out crowd inside José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum of Puerto Rico is absolutely rocking as “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami is blasting throughout the building. Gold and white pyro shoots from the stage, filling the air with smoke, and causing the fans to get even louder as the second of two shows from EAW’s stop in San Juan is officially underway! The camera zooms past the fans and eventually cuts to the ringside area where James Peters and Rich Russillo are standing by. The two announcers are wearing custom t-shirts, as per usual, and today those shirts include a picture of The Woogieman, raising his sexy eyebrow and smirking, with #GOAT underneath the picture.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another amazing edition of Voltage!
Rich Russillo: As always, I’m Rich Russillo, joined by James Petes, and we have one hell of a show for you tonight.
James Peters: As the result of a trade between Dynasty and Voltage, Jack Ripley returns to Sunday night television and takes on the number one contender for the Interwire Championship, Terry Chambers! There’s no doubt that the champ herself, Dr. Bethany Blue, is going to be lurking somewhere and watching that main event later on.
Rich Russillo: We also have Ms. Extreme taking on Korey Gaines, and apparently Charlie Marr and Consuela Rose Ava are going to be taking over commentary for that?! :skip:
James Peters: :mjgrin: I was already told that I have to stay out here and sit between the two of them so they don’t come to blows. CAN’T WAIT for that! *sarcasm*
Rich Russillo: :wow: We have a lot going on, but lets be real. The actual main event of tonight’s show is actually the match we are going to open with.
James Peters: You’ve been waiting all week to see The Woogieman team up with Andrea Valentine, haven’t you?
Rich Russillo: Good lord, talk about a dream team. Veena Adams and Shawn Sturgis are in way over their heads! The Woogieman is already near unstoppable but with Andrea Valentine at his side?! We may as well go ahead and sign them up for the Grand Prix right now and award them the trophy. Who on Earth is going to beat this team?!
James Peters: Veena and Shawn claim it’s going to be them :lupe:!!!!
Rich Russillo: :usure:?!
(“Mark My Words” by Dollskin begins to play and the crowd immediately begins to cheer.)
James Peters: However, we are kicking things off with the NEW Universal Women’s Champion, Raven Roberts!
Rich Russillo: Last weekend, at the conclusion of the incredible match between Kassidy Heart and Kendra Shamez, Raven shocked the world by cashing in the Cash in the Vault briefcase she won back at Pain for Pride.
(As ‘The Bird of Prey’ steps onto the stage, Universal Women’s Championship in hand, the crowd begins to chant.)
Crowd: YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap*
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… RAVEN ROBERTS!
(Raven takes a moment to soak up the reaction from the crowd before gazing down proudly at the world championship that is strapped across her waist. For Raven, the journey towards becoming Universal Women’s Champion was a rocky one; constant twists and turns, with roadblocks galore. However, at Battle of Egypt everything came together for the brunette beauty and she could forever call herself a world champion.)
James Peters: There were a lot of experts predicting that Kassidy Heart was well on her way to becoming one of the most dominant champions this company has ever seen.
Rich Russillo: And with everything going on with Voltage, and the Beating Hearts on-going feud with Charlie Marr and Veena Adams, I’m sure not even Kassidy herself could have predicted that Raven would cash in on her. However, Raven did just that and caught Kassidy off guard, and personally, I’m excited AF. I can’t wait to see what Raven does as champion, and what history she’s going to add to that belt.
(Raven climbs into the ring and takes the microphone from Bella. The two women exchange smiles before Bella exits the ring, leaving Raven alone. As Raven waits for her music to play out, she takes a moment to acknowledge the crowd from all angles. Truth be told, Raven Roberts isn’t someone who’s always been embraced by the fans. In fact, she’s been spit on and scorned by them in the past for decisions she has made, and the actions she has carried out. However, people change and with time, all wounds seemingly heal. Tonight, the Puerto Rican crowd has nothing but love and respect for their new champion.)
Crowd: YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap* YOU DESERVE IT! *clap, clap, clap*
(“Mark My Words” has faded out now, and Raven is fighting back her emotions.)
Raven Roberts: I honestly don’t know what to say. I came out here with this big speech prepared, but this feeling… this moment, and all of you? Wow. Just wow.
(The crowd erupts again.)
Raven Roberts: In my heart, I wasn’t exactly sure how Pain for Pride 12 would go for me. Last season was rather tumultuous for me, and at times, when I allowed myself to entertain the possibility of losing out on the briefcase a second time, I got physically sick over it. I’ve been through a lot, and I’ll admit that some of it was due to poor decision making on my part. To err is human and I’m only human; you guys know that. I’ve always wanted to be a world champion, and I know, I know. Everyone else who competes in EAW wants the same thing. But having come so close twice before, only to have the belt ripped from me by underhanded tactics, I just knew that I had to do whatever it takes to emerge from Pain for Pride as a victor. Getting my hands on the briefcase meant that I could control my own destiny. I could pick my spot and cash in, and take whatever world championship my heart desired. That kind of power isn’t something I took for granted, so choosing the right moment and the right champion was important to me.
(A confidant smile crosses Raven’s face as she briefly pauses.)
Raven Roberts: There’s a lot I have to say about Kassidy Heart, but before we even get into that, there’s one thing I want to agree with her on. She said that the Universal Women’s Championship means different things to all female Elitists in this company. Speaking for myself, that’s definitely true. I had my pick of world championships to cash in on but the Universal Women’s Championship is a belt that I look at and see endless possibilities for. It’s new, and it represents everything I hold near and dear to my heart about this business. I already shattered a proverbial glass ceiling when I became the first female to hold the New Breed Championship, but one thing that kept alluding me on Empire was the Women’s World Championship. Twice i was on the brink of winning that belt, and twice I was fucked out of it. Madison Kaline and her fuck buddies kept it from me the first go around, and Sienna Jade doing what she does best, cheating and fucking around, cost me the second time. After winning Cash in the Vault and knowing that a world championship reign was in my grasp, I’ll admit, I was overwhelmed by all the different possibilities. As I already stated, it placed a lot of power in my hands, but in the end, deciding on the Universal Women’s Championship was the best possible decision. To me, this belt represents everything I’ve ever wanted for my career. It showcases that I’m the top woman in this company, and that I’m well on my way to becoming the top wrestler in this company. Opinions on who’s the actual best are subjective but when my career is done, and everything is in the record books, I know that title is going to belong to me, and it all starts right now.
Raven Roberts: As great as it would have been to cash in on Charlie and put an end to his paper reign, I wouldn’t have gotten the same satisfaction from doing that as I did ending the reign of ‘The Mauler.’ Charlie Marr is a joke, and his results this season prove that in spades. It’s only a matter of time before everything comes crashing down on him, and with any luck that will happen at Wicked Games. To be the best, you have to beat the so-called best, and that’s what Kassidy Heart claims to be, and despite what she delusionally thinks, that is how people treat her. Since Pain for Pride she’s had an overly inflated ego thanks to the dick she keeps in her mouth, and more than that, she decided to drag my name through the mud several times over the last few weeks. I’m not about to engage in a pissing contest over who was more oppressed on Empire, but I think all of you know me well enough by now to know that I don’t put up with bullshit. I will always fight back and defend myself, and the fact it never once crossed that bitch’s mind that I would be the one coming for her title made my cash-in that much sweeter. Awhile back, Kassidy released a video titled ‘Three’, and bragged about how only three people have managed to defeat her in singles competition here in EAW. It is impressive, I’ll give her that, but right then and there I knew that I would be number four. Four. The fact she wanted to talk her shit and act like there wouldn’t be repercussions for that gave me even more incentive.
Raven Roberts: I got my win back from Terminus, and more than that, I showed the world that no one is invincible. I knocked a bitch back down to Earth, and I’m not even going to waste my breath with what Kassidy had to say on Dynasty. It seems like getting her ass beat by The Visual Prophet is in the cards now, and after the number of people to defeat her jumps to five, she will probably whine, and cry, and go right back to being the self-loathing, emo, wrist slitting bitch we all know she truly is. Meanwhile, I’ll be here on Voltage ready to defend my championship at Wicked Games. Whether I face Kassidy again or not is an irrelevant point because my title reign will never be underneath anyone’s shadow. I’ll continue to build the legacy of this championship and take on anyone who wants to step up against me. I’ve already spoken to HRDO about Wicked Games and since my challenger isn’t going to be the woman I dethroned, I’m currently without a match. I want a challenger, because I’m going to be a fighting champion. That means anyone on Voltage, Showdown, and Dynasty are welcome to step up to the plate and face me for the Universal Women’s Championship. I look forward to seeing who that ends up being because believe me, they’re going to be the first to fall at my feet.
(Raven lowers the microphone as “Mark My Words” by Dollskin hits the PA system once again. The fans shower Raven with praise, and as the new champion eats it up, Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Trafalgar travel company specifically highlighting the 2020 itineraries for Europe and Britain. Sierra Bradford and EAW PURE Champion, Jake Smith, are seen flipping through a travel brochure, making casual conversation about places they would like to visit. The conversation comes to a halt when Sierra asks Jake if he knows what Drake King’s dream vacation spot is. Jake doesn’t know why that even matters when they were talking about Greece and whether or not it would be a featured location on EAW’s 2020 schedule :wow:)
(After that excessively extra commercial break, Voltage returns and cuts right to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, this is a tag team match scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first..
(‘If Ya Smell’ by Adam Massacre hits and the crowd begins cheering as The Woogieman walks out to the stage. He waits a few seconds, and the crowd continues to cheer as ‘Roll With Me’ by Charlie XCX hits, and Andrea Valentine walks out to the stage. The two begin walking down to the ring, both seemingly focused on this match.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… The team of THE WOOGIEMAN, AND THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION, ANDREA VALENTINE!!!
James Peters: This should be a good one! We have the legendary Woogieman teaming up with the Specialists Champion, Andrea Valentine! I’m sure Andrea is gonna want some revenge on Veena, one of their opponents tonight after what happened at Battle of Egypt!
Rich Russillo: Yeah. If any of you watching didn’t get to see, Veena Adams and Charlie Marr distracted Andrea in the match between her and Ms. Extreme versus Constance Blevins and Minerva, the current Unified tag team Champions. Andrea is definitely looking for payback after such a loss, but I don’t know if she’s gonna get it that easily.
(‘Head Strong..Acoustic’ by Trapt hits and there’s a very mixed reaction as Shawn Sturgis makes his way out to the ring. Immediately after he makes his way out, his entrance music is replaced with ‘ME’ by Taylor Swift and Brandon Urie, which causes the crowd to boo heavily as Veena Adams walks out to the stage. She doesn’t stop near her partner, and instead walks straight to the ring, prompting Shawn to do the same as Bella begins to speak.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… The team of SHAWN STURGIS, AND VEENA ADAMS!!!!
James Peters: I have no idea how these two are even going to remotely function as a team, but Shawn Sturgis is certainly an exciting competitor! Those high flying moves of his are sure to give Andrea and Woogie a tough time, but what do you think Rich?
Rich Russillo: I don’t know. Veena has been trained in combat by the best of the best, and Shawn is great in his own right, but I’m not too sure yet if they can beat Andrea and Woogie. To be fair though, I’m sure someone like Veena may have some tricks up her sleeve. Let’s find out if she does.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is now underway! Andrea and Veena are starting off as the legal competitors- BUT VEENA TAGS IN SHAWN STURGIS JUST AS ANDREA BEGAN TO CHARGE TOWARDS HER! Andrea now slowly backing away as Shawn Sturgis gets into the ring, AND NOW THE TWO LOCK UP! Shawn has the strength advantage and is easily able to power Andrea to the corner on the opposite side of the ring, and Shawn now keeps her there until a count of three! Shawn let’s go, but Andrea goes right back in for the collar and elbow tie up!
Rich Russillo: Andrea now with a headlock on Sturgis, and it looks like he may be in a bit of trouble! Wait, no! Sturgis with a back suplex to get out of it- BUT ANDREA LANDS ON HER FEET! SHAWN NOW CHARGING TOWARDS ANDREA, BUT SHE CONNECTS WITH AN ARM DRAG! Andrea now with the tag to Woogieman! Woogie entering the ring as Sturgis begins to get back up, but there’s an irish whip to the ropes, FOLLOWED BY A BACK BODY DROP! COVER NOW BY WOOGIE!
James Peters: KICK OUT AT ONE! Woogie now with another irish whip to the ropes as he waits for Shawn to rebound- BUT THERE’S A KICK TO THE FACE BY STURGIS! Now it’s Shawn with the irish whip, FOLLOWED BY A DROPKICK! Woogie now using the ropes to pick himself up, but there’s Shawn charging in- RIGHT INTO A BOOT! Shawn stumbling away holding his jaw, BUT WOOGIE CAPITALIZES WITH A LARIAT! You can see Veena getting frustrated as Woogie is gaining more offense. Woogie now with an irish whip to the corner, and he charges in!
Rich Russillo: NO! SHAWN MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND VEENA HIT WOOGIE WITH A CHEAP PUNCH TO THE FACE! SHAWN NOW MAKING THE TAG TO VEENA, AND NOW VEENA IS STOMPING AWAY AT A DEFENSELESS WOOGIE IN THE CORNER! THE REFEREE TELLING VEENA TO BACK AWAY FROM WOOGIE, AND SURPRISINGLY IT LOOKS LIKE SHE COMPLIES AS SHE NOW GOES FOR A COVER!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT, THIS TIME BY WOOGIE! Veena now with a grounded headlock, and I think it’s worth mentioning that before getting her neck broken by Xavier Williams, Veena was well on her way to becoming a serious women’s division competitor. Recent results aside, she shouldn’t have too much trouble defending herself in this match if I do say so myself.
James Peters: Woogie now managing to get to his feet, and now HE GOES FOR A BACK SUPLEX OF HIS OWN, BUT WOOGIE CONNECTS UNLIKE EARLIER IN THIS MATCH! Woogie now slowly makes his way to the corner, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO ANDREA! Veena now getting back to her feet- BUT SHE’S IMMEDIATELY MET WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK BY THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! ANDREA NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP TO THE ROPES, AND THERE’S ANOTHER DROPKICK BY ANDREA! ANDREA NOW, THROWS VEENA OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT SHE’S NOT FINISHED WITH HER JUST YET!
Rich Russillo: Veena is slowly getting back up, AND NOW ANDREA RUNS THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE!! ANDREA NOW THROWING VEENA BACK INTO THE RING AS SHE HEADS UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND SHE MAY BE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG! VEENA NOW GETTING BACK TO HER FEET, AND ANDREA DI- WAIT NO! SHAWN STURGIS GRABBED ONTO ANDREA’S LEG BEFORE SHE COULD DIVE ONTO THE TOP ROPE! ANDREA NOW FIGHTING SHAWN OFF OF HER, BUT THERE’S VEENA CAPITALIZING OFF THE DISTRACTION WITH A FOREARM!
James Peters: Veena now slowly beginning to climb up the top rope, and things aren’t looking good for Andrea right now as Veena continues to hit forearms, seemingly to wear her down! Veena now trying to grab onto Andrea’s arm, but Andrea still has life in her as she’s trying to fight Veena off! Andrea is clearly outnumbered here though as she’s in Veena’s corner, and there’s Shawn with a punch to Andrea from behind! Veena now setting it up, AND THERE’S A SUPERPLEX!! VEENA JUST HIT A HUGE SUPERPLEX ON ANDREA, AND NOW VEENA CRAWLS ON TOP OF HER FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA KICKS OUT! VEENA CAN’T BELIEVE IT AS ANDREA MANAGED TO KICK OUT BEFORE THREE! VEENA IS FURIOUS, AND NOW SHE’S JUST DELIVERING PUNCHES TO THE FACE OF ANDREA! VEENA NOW BACKING UP INTO THE CORNER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S READY TO PUT THIS MATCH AWAY AS SHE’S YELLING AT ANDREA TO GET BACK UP! IF VEENA CONNECTS WITH WHAT I THINK SHE’S SETTING UP FOR, THIS MATCH COULD BE COMING TO AN END! ANDREA IS SOMEHOW MANAGING TO SLOWLY GET BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND I DON’T THINK SHE KNOWS WHERE SHE IS! SPEAR!!
James Peters: NO!! ANDREA TURNED IT AROUND, AND SHE JUST SENT VEENA SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! VEENA TRIED TO HIT THE SPEAR BUT IT COMPLETELY BACKFIRED ON HER AS ANDREA PULLS VEENA OUT OF THE CORNER AND CONNECTS WITH A BACKSTABBER!! VEENA NOW IS TRYING TO CRAWL BACK TO HER CORNER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE ANDREA WON’T ALLOW THAT AS ONCE AGAIN SHE AIMS TO TOSS VEENA OUT OF THE RING- BUT WAIT! VEENA MANAGED TO LAND ON THE APRON!
Rich Russillo: Andrea now trying to bring Veena back into the ring- BUT VEENA POKED ANDREA IN THE EYES! THE REFEREE COULDN’T SEE BECAUSE ANDREA WAS BLOCKING HER VIEW, BUT VEENA JUST POKED ANDREA IN THE EYES, AND NOW VEENA GOES AND MAKES THE TAG AS ANDREA CAN’T SEEM TO SEE RIGHT NOW! SHAWN STURGIS NOW, WITH A SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW!! SHAWN NOW LIFTING ANDREA UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S SETTING UP FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT LOOK! ANDREA MANAGED TO LAND ONTO HER FEET ONCE MORE, AND NOW SHE BACKS INTO HER CORNER SO WOOGIE CAN TAG HIMSELF IN!
James Peters: I DON’T THINK SHAWN REALIZED WOOGIE TAGGED HIMSELF IN, AS HE NOW CHARGES TOWARDS ANDREA, JUST TO RECEIVE A BOOT TO THE FACE! WOOGIE NOW ENTERING THE RING, AND NOW HE BEGINS TO RUN THE ROPES! SPEAR BY WOOGIE!! WOOGIE JUST CONNECTED WITH A HUGE SPEAR! WOOGIE ISN’T FINISHED THERE EITHER, AS THERE’S A SHARPSHOOTER NOW! WOOGIE HAS THE SHARPSHOOTER LOCKED IN, AND SHAWN HAS NOWHERE TO GO! IS SHAWN GONNA TAP OUT TO THE WOOGIEMAN!? SHAWN IS TRYING TO REACH OUT, BUT THERE’S NOTHING TO GRAB! SHAWN ISN’T CLOSE ENOUGH TO REACH THE ROPES, HE MIGHT HAVE TO TAP OUT HERE! IS THIS HOW THIS MATCH IS GONNA END!? WAIT, NO!
Rich Russillo: VEENA JUST HIT A KNEE STRIKE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF WOOGIE! VEENA JUST BROKE UP THE SUBMISSION, AND THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO TELL HER THAT SHE CAN’T DO THAT, BUT SHE’S MR. DEDEDE’S NIECE, SHE HAS THE POWER TO GET THE POOR REF FIRED AND WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF MOOD MR. DEDEDE HAS BEEN IN LATELY! HE WON’T HESITATE TO FIRE ALL OF US! :LUPE:!!!!! VEENA NOW SLOWLY EXITING THE RIN- WAIT! ANDREA JUST SENT VEENA OFF THE APRON!! ANDREA JUST SENT HER OFF THE APRON AND NOW SHE’S CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE! DIVING CROSSBODY TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, RIGHT ONTO VEENA ADAMS! ANDREA MAY HAVE JUST TAKEN VEENA OUT OF THIS MATCH, BUT I DON’T THINK SHE’S FINISHED AS SHE’S LOOKING TO DEAL EVEN MORE PUNISHMENT! ANDREA NOW GRABBING VEENA, AND NOW SHE JUST SENT HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!
James Peters: Meanwhile in the ring Shawn Sturgis has managed to get back to his feet! Woogie now managing to get back up as well, BUT STURGIS CHARGES RIGHT TOWARDS HIM! SUNSET FLIP BY STURGIS, AND LOOK! THE COVER NOW!
James Peters: WOOGIE TURNS IT AROUND INTO A PIN OF HIS OWN!
James Peters: SHAWN KICKS OUT! BOTH MEN GETTING BACK TO THEIR FEET, AMD SHAWN IS CHARGING AT WOOGIE ONCE AGAIN- BUT WOOGIE JUST SENT SHAWN OVER THE TOP ROPE! SHAWN MANAGED TO LAND ON THE APRON THOUGH, AND THERE’S A FOREARM, CAUSING WOOGIE TO STUMBLE BACK! SHAWN NOW, WITH A SPRINGBOARD- NO!
Rich Russillo: WOOGIE JUST PUSHED SHAWN OFF THE ROPE, AND CAUSED HIM TO CRASH INTO THE BARRICADE! WOOGIE NOW GOING TO JOIN SHAWN OUTSIDE THE RING, AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE TWO BRAWLS GOING ON NOW AS VEENA AND ANDREA SEEMS TO HAVE TAKEN THEIR FIGHT OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD AREA! WOOGIE NOW GRABBING SHAWN, AND HE SLAMS HIS FACE ONTO THE APRON AT A COUNT OF ONE!
James Peters: Woogie now pulling Sturgis up, and he goes for a punch but Shawn blocks it! Shawn with a punch to the face of Woogie at a count of two! Shawn now is taking the fight to Woogie as he continues to connect with multiple punches- WAIT! WOOGIE BLOCKED A PUNCH OF HIS OWN, AND NOW HE’S GRABBING SHAWN! WOOGIE JUST RAMMED SHAWN INTO THE RING POST, AND WE’RE AT A COUNT OF THREE! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN NOW, BUT THE REFEREE IS CONTINUING TO COUNT AS IT’S NOW A COUNT OF FOUR!
Rich Russillo: Of course Woogie is the first to get up now as we reach a count of five, and it looks like he’s trying to take Shawn out now as he eyes the ring post once more! Woogie grabbing Shawn, AND HE TRIES TO SLAM HIS FACE INTO THE POST, BUT SHAWN IS ABLE TO PUT HIS FOOT UP AND STOP HIM AT A COUNT OF SIX! NOW IT’S SHAWN WHO TRIES TO DO THE SAME TO WOOGIE, BUT WOOGIE IS ALSO ABLE TO STOP HIMSELF BEFORE ELBOWING SHAWN IN THE JAW AT A COUNT OF SEVEN!
James Peters: WOOGIE NOW, TRYING TO SEND SHAWN INTO THE BARRICADE, BUT SHAWN INSTEAD JUMPS ONTO IT AT A COUNT OF EIGHT! SHAWN NOW MANAGING TO JUMP OVER WOOGIE, AND AT A COUNT OF NINE IT LOOKS LIKE BOTH MEN ARE TRYING TO GET BACK INTO THE RING, FINALLY REALIZING THE REFEREE’S COUNT- WAIT WHAT!?
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: ZAK SIMMONS JUST SENT THE WOOGIEMAN INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! WOOGIE IS DOWN, AND NOW ZAK JUST PULLED SHAWN OFF THE APRON, AND NOW HE’S SENDING HIM INTO THE RING POST! ZAK SIMMONS JUST RUINED THIS MATCH UP, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S NOT FINISHED WITH SHAWN AS HE PICKS HIM UP!
Rich Russillo: BUT SHAWN IS STILL ALIVE AND FIGHTING! SHAWN NOW WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE OF ZAK, BUT ZAK RETALIATES WITH ONE OF HIS OWN, AND NOW THE TWO ARE GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH RAPID PUNCHES! THESE TWO ARE GIVING THEIR ALL TO ONE ANOTHER, BUT THERE’S A KICK TO THE GUT OF STURGIS, AS ZAK NOW SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! ZAK NOW PICKING SHAWN UP ONE MORE TIME, AND NOW HE RAMS SHAWN BACK INTO THE BARRICADE!
James Peters: ZAK SIMMONS JUST DESTROYED BOTH THE WOOGIEMAN AND SHAWN STURGIS, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE HE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY NOW AS HE JUST GRABBED A MICROPHONE!
Zak Simmons: Shawn, I’m tired of this little back and forth! I’m sick of it! I want to face you! I want you in a match next week Shawn! I want you in a match and I’m going to destroy you, once and for all! I don’t want it in any match though. When we face off, I want it to be, IN A STEEL CAGE MATCH!
Rich Russillo: A steel cage!?
Zak Simmons: So Shawn. I’ll be waiting for an answer from you. I’ll see you then. Just know this is nothing compared to what I’m gonna do in that cage. See you next week!
(The crowd boos as Zak Simmons slowly begins to walk off, away from the motionless Shawn Sturgis. Both Woogie and Shawn are laid out on the floor, and Andrea and Veena’s brawl seems to have went out of the arena, leaving not a single competitor involved in the match in the ring, or standing. Voltage heads to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Athens, Greece featuring Drake King. Drake is seen touring all the tourist spots, doing tourist things, and eating delicious baklava. It’s his favorite vacation spot, Sierra.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the backstage area. More specifically, the location is the lockerroom of Korey Gaines. The Voltage Elitist is seen wrapping his hands for his upcoming match against Ms. Extreme. He looks deep in thought and no doubt seems ready to address the question that has been on everyone’s minds as of late.)
Korey Gaines: Why did I attack Consuela after politely challenging her for Wicked Games?
(A slow smile spreads across Korey’s face.)
Korey Gaines: My opponent for tonight, Ms. Extreme, seems to think it’s because I believe Consuela Rose Ava to be weak, but I actually believe the opposite. Consuela is a highly skilled competitor, and what she’s managed to accomplish in EAW so far goes without saying. I appreciate the fact she is a pure wrestler, and that’s exactly what I’m striving to be. I think the two of us have the opportunity to steal the show at Wicked Games.
(Korey pauses for just a moment before continuing.)
Korey Gaines: One of the reasons as to why I attacked Consuela after extending the challenge, was to show this entire roster that I’m someone they will take seriously. Ms. Extreme posed a question to me this week, and it was a simple one at that. ‘Do you hate it, Korey?’ She would go to ask me if I hated being the butt of every joke, and the answer is of course I do. I have worked my ass off to learn this sport and get better at it, and I want to be someone who is constantly involved in the championship picture and in the conversation when it comes to big matches and opportunities. Transitioning from extreme sports icon to professional wrestler hasn’t been as easy as I thought it would be, and this experience has been really humbling. Back at Pain for Pride, I thought for sure I would walk away with that 24/7 contract and when it didn’t happen for me, that hurt a little bit. No one enjoys taking losses, least of all me, but knowing that I basically let a guaranteed shot at a championship slip through my fingers hurts more than the others.
Korey Gaines: That brings me to the second reason as to why I challenged and attacked Consuela. Consuela busted her ass to win that battle royal, and she went hard. I won’t ever take that away from her, and I know it was a career changing moment for her especially when she likely felt she wasn’t going anywhere else. However since coming to Voltage, Consuela hasn’t done a damn thing with that contract, nor have I seen any fight or fire to change things. She basically backed off because Rex McAllister beat her to the punch for the right to face Marr at Territorial Invasion, and that’s not really something I can respect. It shouldn’t matter who else is in the championship picture, if Consuela really felt confident about her chances to properly use that contract she would have made the match a triple threat. I know she teased a cash in back at Territorial Invasion, but c’mon. Consuela was never going to pull the trigger and I have a theory about that. I think the reason why she’s hanging on to that contract and not using it is because she’s afraid to use it.
Korey Gaines: Consuela has been down and out before, and has hit rock bottom. Who can forget the images of her wanting to take a razor blade to her wrist back on Empire because she continued to lose? A person like that is far from stable and I can’t help but question Consuela’s mental health. I don’t want to overstep, but clearly she lacks that killer instinct needed to make it, and get out of the shadows of her sisters. I’m pretty sure she’s afraid of failing her cash in. I know a lot of people question my own instinct, as well as my priorities, and I’m hoping I answered some of those doubts people have about me. I did everything I could to win that contract, only for someone else who’s afraid to use it wind up with it. That makes me angry, and I don’t like being surrounded by negativity. Challenging Consuela to put that contract on the line was a no-brainer. If she truly wants to use it and become a champion in the future, she will have no problem digging deep and proving that she’s deserving of it. I know for a fact I am. I might not have a plethora of wins over big names, or whatever, but I know that my breakout is going to come and with any luck, that break out is going to happen at Wicked Games.
Korey Gaines: So I didn’t pick Consuela because she is weak, or because I thought she would be easy to defeat. I picked Consuela because I think she is afraid to use that contract. If she is going to rest on her laurels and wait for everyone else to take her opportunity, or whatever it is she’s doing, I’m just going to take it from her and put the contract to use. My goal this season to be taken seriously as a competitor and to give people something else to talk about other than a mistake I made and already owned up too. At Wicked Games, Consuela is going to fight like hell if she truly wants a contract that grants her a shot at becoming a champion. I know I will, and when I walk away with my hand raised and the 24/7 contract in my hand, I’m going to start watching every championship holder carefully, and picking my spot. You can bet on that.
(Gaines shoots a determined look at the camera and the scene fades from the lockerroom.)
(The scene reopens inside the lockerrom of the Ava sisters, and both Ms. Extreme and Consuela Rose Ava have been watching Korey’s promo on their monitor. Ms. Extreme has a look of pure disgust on her face and she shakes her head.)
Ms. Extreme: That stupid fuck is going to get exactly what he deserves tonight, and that is me beating the shit out of him and making him regret ever leaving the world of extreme sports.
(Consuela’s face isn’t as easily read as her younger sister’s, but after a moment she tucks her dark locks behind her ears and sighs.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I truly hope the consensus doesn’t actually believe I’m afraid to cash in my contract. This thing gives me the right to have a chance at any championship I want, and that’s not a decision I’m going to make on a whim. Like Raven, the choice to cash in on Charlie is a tempting one, but what is that going to accomplish? He is the very definition of a paper champion and his title reign is going to go up in flames at Wicked Games. Raven picked a moment and a title that would be memorable, and regardless of how we feel about someone who actually embraced becoming Mrs. Adams *Consuela shudders*, that was a huge win for Raven. She’s got the chance to really shape that title into something special. Even Cameron wanted a chance to be Universal Women’s Champion.
Ms. Extreme: I highly doubt anyone other than that idiot thinks you’re scared to cash in, and if they do, then fuck ‘em. We both know that you have been a champion three times in the past and on your own merit. You didn’t need a contract to win a title before. There is no one else in this company’s history who can say they’ve been a three-time Specialists Champion.
(Consuela gives Ms. Extreme a smile.)
Consuela Rose Ava: When it comes to MY contract, that’s one thing I’m sure of, Camille.
Ms. Extreme: What do you mean?
Consuela Rose Ava: My time in the Specialists division is done for now. I won’t be using my contract to get a fourth Specialists reign. I’m moving on and I’m going to continue building my own legacy.
Ms. Extreme: I love that. You deserve all the titles, Consuela, and I know that you’re going to get whatever you want when the time is right. In the meantime, just focus on Wicked Games and beating the holy living hell out of the carcass of Korey Gaines. I promise I’ll leave you something to beat up.
Consuela Rose Ava (rolling her eyes): You’re to kind.
Ms. Extreme: :mjgrin: I know. So I guess this means you’re going to put the contract on the line?
Consuela Rose Ava: Absolutely. If Korey wants to get his pervy hands on my hard earned prize, then he better come prepared to kill me for it. At the end of the day, I’m an Ava, and we’re the most resourceful family this sport has ever seen. I’m not going to roll over and die for anyone, and I’m certainly not anyone’s easy victory.
Ms. Extreme: I fucking love it. You’re going to be a champ. I’m going to be a champ. Cameron is going be a champ. Not bad for three of four sisters who came from nothing.
(Consuela put her arm around her Ms. Extreme’s shoulders and grinned.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Not bad at all.
(The Avas head out of the lockerroom and Voltage fades to ringside.)
(Like the goddess that she is, Bella is ready to announce the competitors for the next match!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: The winner of this contest will receive a shot at the #1 Contendership for the Interwire Championship… at Wicked Games!
(The crowd pops for Wicked Games!)
James Peters: Did you hear that? The winner of this match is going to Wicked Games?
Rich Russillo: With a shot at becoming the #1 Contender for the Interwire Championship?
James Peters: That’s big poppa pimpin’ right there!
Rich Russillo: That’s… what? What the hell does that even mean?
(‘The Next Movement’ by The Roots hits and the lights dim until Damian Butler arrives on the stage, stylized ‘DB3’ robe and all. He holds up a fist for the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Silicon Valley, California… weighing in at 220 lbs… DAMIAN BUTLER!
(Damian Butler heads down to the ring, messing with the buttons on his wristband, making little emojis pop up all around him.)
James Peters: And here comes Damian Butler.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, or as I like to call him, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes!
James Peters: The match hasn’t even started and you’re already making references nobody will get.
Rich Russillo: Shout out to Disney+! Launching soon!
Bella Braxton: And his opponent…
(‘The Path’ by Senses Fall hits.)
Bella Braxton: From Hoboken, New Jersey… weighing 210 lbs… The Virtuous… JESSE BARLOW!
(Jesse Barlow enters and stalks down towards the ramp with nothing but focus, drive and determination written all over his face.)
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow’s here to save our electricity bill!
James Peters: Agreed. All those holograms must be costing us a fortune.
Rich Russillo: Seriously. I saw a hologram tax on my pay stub last week.
James Peters: Oh hell no.
(Damian Butler and Jesse Barlow eye each other in the ring.)
(DING DING DING!)
James Peters: And here we go!
Rich Russillo: Damian Butler starting things off here, rushing for Jesse Barlow and landing a quick kick to the gut! Jesse Barlow backs off as Damian Butler presses his offense! Jesse Barlow backs into the ropes– Damian Butler goes for a Double Axe Handle but Jesse Barlow ducks! Damian Butler catches himself on the ropes, spins and gets a dropkick to the face from Jesse Barlow!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow’s kip-ups back to his feet. Damian Butler is a little slower, trying to shake off the effects of that dropkick. Jesse Barlow grabs Damian Butler and sends him across the ring with an Irish Whip! Damian rebounds off the ropes and is taken down by a swift Lariat! Jesse Barlow with another kip-up! Damian still down on the mat.
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow kicks Damian Butler over and lays into his skull with a series of brutal Stomps! One after another until the ref forces him to back off! Damian Butler grabs onto the ropes to pull himself up. Things are not looking too good for the technopagan!
James Peters: What in the cobalt blue hell is a technopagan?
Rich Russillo: It’s what Jenny Calendar was on Buffy.
James Peters: What the hell is a Buffy?
Rich Russillo: … I’m going to pretend you didn’t just say that. Otherwise, we’ll be having a match at Wicked Games.
James Peters: Stay smokeless. It’s better for you.
Rich Russillo: Call the match before you get dealt with.
James Peters: Damian Butler trying to mount some sort of offense! He’s locked up with Jesse Barlow! Damian Butler shoves Jesse Barlow back and catches him with a European Uppercut! Jesse Barlow responds with a boot to Damian Butler’s gut! Jesse Barlow locks Damian Butler up but Damian Butler fights out of it with punches to Jesse Barlow’s side! Jesse Barlow’s loosens his grip and Damian Butler locks his arms around Jesse Barlow’s waist– running him back into the corner! Back first into the turnbuckle!
Rich Russillo: Damian Butler not letting up– hammering away with right hands to Jesse Barlow’s skull. Jesse Barlow covers up to protect himself! Jesse Barlow shoves Damian Butler away and gets himself out of the corner! Jesse Barlow rushes Damian Butler– who takes Jesse Barlow down with a swift Arm Drag! Jesse Barlow pops up– another Arm Drag from Damian Butler! Jesse Barlow recovers and ONCE MORE! ANOTHER ARM DRAG FROM DAMIAN BUTLER! Both men stare down each other from opposite sides of the ring after that exchange.
James Peters: I don’t know who has who’s number in this one.
Rich Russillo: I’ve got Bella Braxton’s number.
James Peters: Doesn’t everyone?
Rich Russillo: I hope not. I worked hard for these digits. Wait! Jesse Barlow has Damian Butler around the waist. Damian Butler trying to work himself free but Jesse Barlow’s got him locked up tight. Jesse Barlow lifts up… GERMAN SUPLEX! Damian Butler is down and Jesse Barlow is starting to get fired up! Jesse Barlow in control now, dragging Damian Butler back up to his feet. Jesse Barlow doesn’t even hesitate– DDT!
James Peters: Right on his head. Man, if Damian’s not suffering from technical difficulties after that one…
Rich Russillo: How long have you been wanting to use that one?
James Peters: Since Damian Butler signed a contract. Jesse Barlow covers!
James Peters: And a quick kickout from Damian Butler.
Rich Russillo: All instinct right there, JP. All instinct.
James Peters: You’re probably right. From here, it doesn’t look like Damian Butler even knows where he is. And I don’t think Jesse Barlow’s going to let him figure it out! Jesse Barlow has Damian Butler up again, looks like he’s going for a Back Suplex… wait, he converts… BACKBREAKER! HOLY SHIT! DAMIAN BUTLER WAS JUST BROKEN IN HALF! JESSE BARLOW IS TRULY THE BANE OF DAMIAN BUTLER’S EXISTENCE RIGHT NOW! Does he even have a spine anymore?!
Rich Russillo: Doubtful, partner! Jaysus! Jesse Barlow just shoving Damian Butler down to the mat like a piece of trash. Jesse Barlow with a sinister grin on his face. I think we just found out which number is had and by whom. Jesse Barlow has Damian Butler scouted. Jesse Barlow stalking his prey, giving Damian Butler time to find his feet… waiting… FLYING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!
James Peters: Did I just see Damian Butler’s head fly off?!
Rich Russillo: Might as well have. Damian Butler’s down and Jesse Barlow with the cover.
Rich Russillo: What?! WHAT?! JESSE BARLOW JUST LIFTED DAMIAN’S SHOULDER UP! HE’S NOT DONE WITH HIM! HE HAD THE MATCH WON!
James Peters: Possibly. We don’t know if Damian Butler was going to kick out or not.
Rich Russillo: Did you not see the way his head snapped back? I don’t even know if he’s conscious.
James Peters: Or alive. Well, online, I guess in Damian Butler’s case. Since he’s a robot.
Rich Russillo: Fuck The Matrix!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow’s ready to add insult to injury here as he sends Damian Butler back to the mat with a vicious Snapmare! Jesse Barlow follows right up with a DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL! Damian hits the mat again and looks like he’s trying to find a way to stand. Jesse Barlow backing off now, giving Damian Butler some room to get to his hands and knees. Look at Jesse Barlow’s eyes– he’s planning something!
Rich Russillo: And we’re about to find out what it is– CURB STOMP! CURB STOMP TO DAMIAN BUTLER! DAMIAN BUTLER IS BUSTED OPEN! I THINK I SAW A TOOTH FLY BY AT MACH 7! BUT JESSE BARLOW JUST CRACKED DAMIAN BUTLER’S FACE WIDE OPEN!
James Peters: Damian Butler is down and he might even be out but Jesse Barlow just refuses to cover him. Somebody needs to be made an example of and Damian Butler drew the short straw. Jesse Barlow heads to the corner and waits for Damian Butler to get to his feet. Damian Butler is completely out of it. His face is bleeding profusely and he’s barely able to stand on his own two feet. Jesse Barlow explodes out of the corner and– ABOLISHER! DAMIAN BUTLER’S BEEN GUTTED LIKE A DAMN FISH! DID YOU SEE THE IMPACT ON THAT SPEAR?! HOLY FUCK NUGGETS!
Rich Russillo: That’s gotta’ be it! There’s no sense in letting this continue! Jesse Barlow’s got this won! That’s right… cover him!
James Peters: The ref is down to count.
James Peters: What?! What?! Damian Butler’s foot is on the ropes! It must’ve happened when Jesse Barlow took him on a one way trip to Painville, Population: 1! Damian Butler’s barely breathing. It looks like his leg is just hanging there.
Rich Russillo: Accident or no, Jesse Barlow is forced to continue this match after the official calls for a break in the pin attempt.
James Peters: I wouldn’t call getting more time to destroy Damian Butler ‘forced’. I think it’s more like giving a lion more play time with a wounded gazelle.
Rich Russillo: IT’S A SLAUGHTERKNOCKER!
James Peters: … I don’t know how I feel about that. I’ll get back to you on that one, partner.
Rich Russillo: You do that. Jesse Barlow dragging Damian Butler to the center of the ring now. Keeping him away from those ropes. No more accidents happening tonight! Jesse Barlow helping Damian Butler to his feet. He’s practically out on his feet though! Blood still dripping from Damian Butler’s face! Jesse Barlow steadies the swaying body– steps back— REPENT! REPENT! THAT PUNCH KNOCKED THE DAMN SOUL OUT OF DAMIAN BUTLER!
James Peters: Do robots even have souls?
Rich Russillo: Not when Jesse Barlow is around!
James Peters: Wait! Damian Butler is still on his feet! Maybe he’s got a back-up generator or something because he’s still standing. Barely. Damian Butler’s knees are buckling more every moment and Jesse Barlow can practically taste the blood in the water. Jesse Barlow bounces off the ropes and rushes towards Damian Butler! CLOTHESLINE! NO! DAMIAN BUTLER FINDS THE WHEREWITHAL TO DUCK! DAMIAN BUTLER SPINS AROUND AS JESSE BARLOW BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AGAIN! DAMIAN BUTLER REACHES FOR HIM BUT JESSE BARLOW SLIDES THROUGH HIS LEGS!
Rich Russillo: JESSE HITS THE ROPES ONE LAST TIME– HE’S HEADED STRAIGHT FOR DAMIAN BUTLER, WHO TURNS AROUND A HAIR TOO LATE– KISS OF DEATH! THAT’S IT! HE’S DONE! KISS OF DEATH RIGHT TO THE FACE OF DAMIAN BUTLER! DAMIAN BUTLER IS KNOCKED OFF HIS FEET!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow better end Damian Butler’s misery or the referee is going to do it for him!
Rich Russillo: It’s fine! It’ll be fine! Damian Butler’s a robot anyway, right?
James Peters: Fair point. Jesse Barlow drops down to cover Damian Butler but he catches the turnbuckle out of the corner of his eye. Uh oh. I don’t think I like where this might be headed.
Rich Russillo: I, on the better hand, love where I think it’s headed.
James Peters: Jesse Barlow steps over Damian Butler’s body and stomps his way over to the corner. He climbs up the turnbuckle and positions himself on the top rope. Jesse Barlow’s calling for it! HE’S UP! FEAR OF GOD! FEAR OF GOD! DAMIAN BUTLER EATS EVERY BIT OF JESSE BARLOW’S DEVASTATING 650 SPLASH!
Rich Russillo: Something’s broken, JP! I heard it! I’ve got ears like a bat! Something cracked!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow hops back up to his feet and brings Damian Butler with him. Damian Butler’s body is dangling, Jesse Barlow is holding his opponent up. That’s how much destruction he has done in this single match. That’s how much pain he’s inflicted. Personally, I have no idea how Damian Butler is still conscious. He might not even be!
Rich Russillo: Looks like Jesse Barlow is going for the kill here. Jesse Barlow holding Damian Butler up now, dragging him by his unmoving feet to the center of the ring. Jesse Barlow drops back, pulling Damian Butler into a ripcord and NEVERMORE! NEVERMORE TO DAMIAN BUTLER!
James Peters: That’s it! That has to be it! There’s nothing left in Damian Butler’s tank after this!
Rich Russillo: I definitely saw a tooth fly out this time!
James Peters: Damian Butler goes down and Jesse Barlow just lays an arm over him. Should the official even count this point?
Rich Russillo: Only the official can make it official, JP.
James Peters: Spoken like a true fourth grader, Rich.
(DING DING DING!)
(‘The Path’ by Senses Fall hits as Jesse Barlow steps over his broken opponent and looks out at the crowd in Virtuous Victory.)
Bella Braxton: Here’s your winner… by pinfall… ‘The Virtuous’ JESSE BARLOW!
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow takes the match with ease! I saw this one coming from a parsec away!
James Peters: That’s what she said… in space.
Rich Russillo: See, no. This is why I do the comedic bits. You suck at them.
James Peters: Calm your tits. You don’t want to see me at Wicked Games.
Rich Russillo: Somebody book this shit! I want all the smoke!
(Rich and James continue to bicker as Jesse climbs out of the ring and makes his way up the stage. Once up there, he is greeted by Hannah Marin, who gives him a hug and then raises his arm in the victory.)
(Voltage fades into a promotional ad for the Dynasty exclusive event, House of Glass.)
(A promotional ad for House of Glass airs, highlighting the history of Glass Wallz, and showcasing the current feud between World Heavyweight Champion, Impact, and his challenger, TLA. Glass Wallz returns at House of Glass with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Impact will defend the championship against TLA live from the Mexico City Arena in Mexico City! House of Glass comes to you live on free-per-view Saturday, November 2nd, 2019!)
(Voltage returns, and Bella smiles into the camera.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘We Own The Night’ by Hollywood Undead begins to play, as Serena Riot, The Fallen Prophet makes her way to the ring.
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… WRESTLING OUT OF CLEVELAND, OHIO……. WEIGHING IN AT 150 POUNDS…. THE FALLEN PROPHET HERSELF… SEREEEEENAAAAAA RIOT!!!!
James Peters: Every week that Serena Riot competes, I grow more and more anxious. It’s only a matter of time before this woman breaks out and as talented as she is, and as slightly unhinged as she is… it’s a rather daunting thought.
Rich Russillo: Serena Riot has definitely been a standout here on Voltage so far this season. She takes everything she’s given in stride and just rolls with the punches. We have seen her take a lot of punishment, and dish out even more. Serena is someone I firmly believe in, and she’s destined for great things here.
(Riot gets into the ring and takes her corner. ‘Catch Hell’ echoes throughout the arena as “The Southern Elite” makes his way onto the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT, WEIGHING IN AT 245lbs…FROM LEXINGTON, KENTUCKYYY…THE SOUTHERNNNN ELITEEEE, ZAK SIMMMOONNSSS!!!!
Rich Russillo: Now here’s a man who already made his mark on the show tonight. Zak interrupted our opening contest earlier tonight and cost the team of Shawn Sturgis and Veena Adams a win. He would go on to challenge Sturgis to of all things a cage match! :lupe:!!
James Peters: So far, we haven’t heard from Sturgis as to whether or not he’s going to accept the challenge, but we do understand he underwent medical treatment a little earlier and is perfectly fine.
Rich Russillo: :blessed:
(Simmons gets into the ring and immediately starts talking shit to Riot. She claps back and the referee wastes no time calling for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: HERE WE GO!! Quickly both competitors surge forward, hoping to gain an early advantage. Locking up viciously, you can feel the disdain between these two. Bodying and shoving for position…Simmons uses the size advantage early on, pressuring Riot back into the corner…AND HITS HER HARD WITH A PUNCH TO THE GUT! That blow had malice in it, you could just feel the organs of Riot shake upon that shot. Simmons grabs a handful of hair and drops a nasty elbow right on the back of Riot’s head. Simmons wearing a smirk of satisfaction like a predator toying with its prey.
Rich Russillo: I mean, what did you expect? It’s clear both competitors aren’t here to wrestle, they’re here to toruture each other. That will most likely be a focal po – ENZEGUIRI FROM RIOT!! RIGHT ON THE TEMPLE!! Wasting no time, Riot gets back to her feet and she’s got that same predatory look on her face…though hers is one of pure rage! RIOT STOMPS ON THE FINGERS OF SIMMONS!! JESUS CHRIST!! STOMPS TO THE HEAD NOW!! VICIOUS KICKS AND STOMPS TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL OF SIMMONS!! SHE DOESTN WANT TO WIN THIS MATCH, SHE DOESNT WANT TO TORTURE HIM, SHE WANTS TO END HIS CAREER HERE!!
James Peters: You got that right Rich, She’s out for blood! Serena Riot brings Simmons up to his feet, drilling him with a BARRAGE of knee strikes to the midsection and face. It appears as if Serena Riot aims to rearrange the face of Zak Simmons! Riot again on the attack cracks the jaw of Simmons with a jawbreaker…GOING AT THE WHALE ONE MORE TIME, LOOKING FOR A COMBINATION…SHE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES….SHE COMES BACK WITH A BIG BOOT RIGHT TO THE CHIN OF SIMMONS!! THAT ONE HURT!!!
Rich Russillo: Simmons wisely rolls to the outside, avoiding any possible attacks of Riot…OR HAS HE?!?! RIOT’S LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG…SHE’S GONNA LOOK DEEP INTO HER BAG OF TRICKS FOR THIS ONE…HERE SHE COMES, SERENA RIOT LAUNCHES HERSELF TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!!!! WAIT SHE GOT CAUGHT, SIMMONS CAUGHT HER, PLUCKED HER OUT OF MID AIR, WHAT DOES HE HAVE IN MIND…SIMMONS LAUNCHES HER INTO THE AIR AND DROPS HER ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR WITH A SPINE SHAKING SAMOAN DROP!! RIOT WAS JUST DROPPED ON THAT UNFORGIVING FLOOR, I DON’T SEE HOW SHE CAN RECO-OH NO, OH NO…SIMMONS NOT GIVING RIOT ANY TIME TO BREATHE, HE HAS SOMETHING EVIL IN MIND!! THIS COULD BE THE END OF THE ROAD FOR SERENA RIOT..WHAT THE HELL DOES HE HAVE IN MIND…PUMPHANDDDLEEEEE SLAMMMM!!! PUMPHANDLE SLAM RIGHT ON THE APRON! THAT BARE APRON COLLIDES WITH THE SPINE OF RIOT ONCE AGAIN!!! SIMMONS LOOKS PLEASED WITH HIS WORK!! RIOT DOESN’T EVEN APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, SHE APPEARS TO BE ABSOLUTELY LIFELESS!
James Peters: Medics are making their way down to ringside now, Rich I’m not sure Riot can
continue. Meanwhile, Zak Simmons is taking all the pleasure in the world knowing he could’ve just put Riot on the injured list. Now they’re attempting to put Riot on the stretcher. As we see Riot being carried up that stage, you can’t help but fee…WAIT…SHE’S FIGHTING IT, SHE’S RESISTING, SHE WANTS TO FIGHT!! SHE FIGHTS OFF THE MEDICS, SHE DOESN’T CARE WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY, EVEN IF SHE SUFFERS PERMANENT INJURY, SHE ISN’T ABOUT TO LET SIMMONS OFF EASY!! RIOT STORMS DOWN THE RAMP, FULL SPEED AHEAD, SIMMONS LOOKS SHAKEN TOP HIS CORE!!! RIOT RE ENTERS THE RING WITH A NEWFOUND FIRE INSIDE OF HER AND A SICK SMIRK ACROSS HER FACE!!! KICKS AND FOREARMS, KNEES AND PUNCHES, ANYTHING SHE CAN IMAGINE IS BEING INFLICTED UPON SIMMONS!! ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS ATTACK FROM RIOT, SHE’S A COLD BLOODED AND RUTHLESS NATURED COMPETITOR, BUT THIS IS PERSONAL, SHE’S NOT GOING LET ZAK SIMMONS LEAVE THIS BUILDING WITHOUT GOING TO HELL AND BACK, AND PAYING FOR WHAT HE’S DONE!!
Rich Russillo: RIOT’S COMPOSED HERSELF NOW, AND SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S READY TO END THIS BOUT…THIS WAR!!! SHE LOOKS TO BE SITTING UP FOR WICKED WAYS, THAT VICIOUS STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD…SHE’S ABOUT TO UNLEASH IT HERE, IF SHE DOES, IT’LL SURELY BE THE END!!! SERENA RIOT..WICKKEEDDDDD WAAA-CLOTHESLINE!!! BY GAWD, ZAK SIMMONS JUST FUCKING DECAPITATED RIOT WITH THAT LARIAT!! I’M PRETTY SURE A FEW OF HER TEETH FLEW INTO THE FIRST ROW!! SIMMONS WITH A ROAR OF ENERGY IS READY TO FIGHT ONCE AGAIN!! RIOT GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET AND IS MET WITH A MASSIVE SPINEBUSTER FROM SIMMONS!! THE BACK OF RIOT HAS BEEN A TARGET SINCE THE BEGINNING, AND SIMMONS IS MAKING FULL USE OF HIS DANGEROUS ARSENAL!! HE GOES AT THE WHALE AGAIN, SIMMONS IS LOOKING FOR A FINISH HERE…POWERBOMB FROM SIMMONS, ONCE AGAIN ON THE BACK OF RIOT, AND NOW ANOTHER BIG POWERBOMB FROM SIMMONS!! THIS IS ABSOLUTE DEVASTATION FROM ZAK SIMMONS, JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT HE WAS DOWN AND OUT, HE COMES BACK WITH THIS STORM OF OFFENSE, DESTROYING THE BODY AND SPIRIT OF RIOT!!!
James Peters: The Machine, Zak Simmons, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR A BIG ENDING HERE, POSSIBLY…AN ELITE ENDING! THAT KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE JAW, IT’S ENDED MANY OPPONENTS, COULD IT END RIOT HERE TONIGHT?!?! ZAK SIMMONS, LOOKS TO…OH MY…HE’S TIED RIOT UP IN THE ROPES, HER ARMS RESTRICTED, SHE’S GOT NO DEFENSE, THIS IS THE END RIGHT HERE…RIOT BROKE FREE OF THE ROPES, SHE BROKE FREE, FUCKING HOW?!?!? NOW THEY’RE BOTH BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, BACK TO SQUARE ONE, I DON’T SEE HOW EITHER COMPETITOR COULD END THIS…SIMMONS GOES FOR A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE…RIOT COUNTERS, LOOKING FOR THE DEVIL’S FANG…SIMMONS COUNTERS INTO A SNAP SUPLEX, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER…RIOT COUNTERS INTO A BIG BACKDROP, NOW SHE RUNS TO THE CORNER, WASTING NO TIME, COMING BACK IN WITH WICKED WAYS!!! WICKED WAYS!!! RIOT NAILED IT, SHE DRILLED HIS HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS, CRACKING THE CRANIUM OF SIMMONS!! NOW SHE’S HEADING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR THE DEMON DROP!! THIS MOVE HAS ENDED SO MANY, IT’S PROVED TO BE SUCH A POISONOUS MOVE!!! HERE SHEEEE GOOEEEESSSS….DEEEMMMMONNNN DROPPPPPPP – SIMMONS ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY, RIOT MISSED! NO WATER IN THE POOL FOR SERENA RIOT THAT TIME, THAT COULD PROVE COSTLY TO HER IN THIS MATCH!!
Rich Russillo: LOOK AT SIMMONS, HE REALIZES THIS IS HIS CHANCE TO CAPITALIZE, RIOT’S EXPENDED ALL OF HER ENERGY, SHE DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING LEFT. SIMMONS TIME IS NOW!! SIMMONS LIFTS RIOT UP TO HER FEET…BRAINBUSTER!!! A LETHAL BRAINBUSTER RIGHT TO THE NECK OF RIOT, ONCE AGAIN GOING FOR HER NECK AND BACK!!

(‘Head Strong’ begins to play as Shawn Sturgis appears at the top of the stage…)
Rich Russillo: SHAWN STURGIS!?!?!?!? HE IS COMING TO GET PAYBACK FROM EARLIER I’M SURE!!!! HE’S HERE!!! WHAT THE HELL IS HE GONNA PULL?!?! SIMMONS IS ENRAGED THAT SHAWN WOULD SHOW HIS FACE NOW, WHAT IS ABO- WAIT A ROLLUP FROM SERENA RIOT, OH MY GOD….
(DING, DING, DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNNERRRRR….SEREEENNNNAAAA RIIIOOOOTTTT!!!!
James Peters: SHAWN STURGIS COST SIMMONS HIS MATCH, SERENA RIOT JUST WON BECAUSE OF SHAWN STURGIS!!! WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON, STRUGIS NOW HEADED TO THE RING…HE”S UNLOADING ON SIMMONS, A BATTERED ZAK SIMMONS, SHAWN DOESNT CARE, HE WANTS REVENGE!!!! SHAWN STURGIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNLOADING ON ZAK SIMMONS!!! HE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A STUNNER AND IS GOING TO THE TOP ROPE! SHAWN STURGIS TAKES TO THE SKIES AND LANDS A STUNNING 450 SPLASH ON ZAK SIMMONS!
(Shawn rolls ut of the ring and takes to the microphone from Bella. A wicked grin crosses his face.)
Shawn Sturgis: Zak, you pussy. I accept your fucking challenge. I’ll see you next week inside a steel cage!
(The crowd erupts as Sturgis’ throws the microphone down in disgust.)
James Peters: YOU HEARD HIM FOLKS, NEXT WEEK, A CAGE MATCH RIGHT HERE ON VOLTAGE, SHAWN STURGIS JR AND ZAK SIMMONS!!! OH BOY I CAN’T WAIT.
(Voltage fades backstage as Shawn Sturgis makes his way back up the ramp.)
(The show reopens and EAW’s newest backstage correspondent, Persephone Tsitsipas, is seen standing by. The stunning Grecian beauty, who previously worked for EAW overseas, flashes her megawatt smile into the camera.)
Persephone Tsitsipas: Ladies and gentlemen, at this time I am pleased to welcome, Sarah Price!
(The camera shot widens and the popular EAW rookie is seen standing next to Persephone. Sarah is dressed in gear and she looks ready for her match against Frankie Paradise, which happens to be next! Sarah flashes Persephone a friendly smile.)
Sarah Price: Thank y-
Persephone Tsitsipas: It’s not time for you to answer questions yet.
Sarah Price: :skip:
(Persephone’s tone of voice isn’t the most friendly, and it definitely caught Sarah off guard.)
Sarah Price: S-Sorry?
Persephone Tsitsipas: Are you asking me if you are sorry, or saying you are sorry? This is an interview, and not a platform for you to air out your personal feelings. Now I have some questions for you. Are you prepared to give answers?
(Sarah blinks, not at all happy with Persephone’s attitude towards her, or the way she is being spoken too. However, like the superhero princess she is, Sarah puts her best foot forward and smiles.)
Sarah Price: Fire away.
Persephone Tsitsipas: A couple of weeks ago, you suffered a rather humiliating beatdown at the hands of Shortfuse PAKA.
Sarah Price: Well, I wouldn’t necessarily say that it was humiliating…
Persephone Tsitsipas: Really? Because that old ass motherfucker basically beat the shit out of you, and when you woke up backstage you didn’t even know what had happened to you.
Sarah Price: Well, that is fair I suppose, but I definitely didn’t feel humiliated. Shortfuse PAKA is nothing more than a bully and I refuse to let someone like him get the better of me. As long as I continue to smile and hold my head up high, the PAKAs of the world are going to be beside themselves with nothing else to really say or do. I’m not the type of person that has to fight fire with fire in order to be effective. I know what I’m capable of, and my matches in EAW so far have shown everyone that I can hang with either women or men. Those who end up mistaking my kindness for weakness, are the ones who usually end up falling to me in the end. It doesn’t have to be right away, or even six months now, but those who have wronged me… the Shortfuse PAKAs of the world, eventually get what’s coming to them.
(Persephone looks a little bored.)
Persephone Tsitsipas: So I take it you’re not going to do anything about it?
Sarah Price: And what would you have me do?
Persephone Tsitsipas: Seriously? If someone did some shit like that to me, I would pull a knife on them and slice their throat from one side to the other.
(Saraph places her hand over her heart, just shocked and appalled by Persephone Tsitsipas.)
Sarah Price: Well, alright. Everyone is certainly entitled to handle their business however they choose. That’s not who I am, and I will never be that person. I believe in karma, and what you project into the universe comes back around on you tenfold. The dark cloud that hangs over PAKA’s head is the reason why he hasn’t made it to that next level here in EAW. I’m not impressed with Shortfuse PAKA, like at all. He is nothing more than a brute. He’s not a wrestler; he is just a glorified fighter and to my knowledge, EAW is not a mixed martial company. Provencal might have hesitated to strike me a couple of weeks ago, but I still had to work hard to win that match and for PAKA to do what he did at the end of it is just garbage. That doesn’t change the fact that I’m proud of myself and tonight I’m going to take another huge step in my career when insecure myself a spot in the Interwire Championship contendership match at Wicked Games.
Persephone Tsitsipas: Yeah so speaking of that match, you seriously don’t think you have a chance at beating Frankie Paradise do you?
(Sarah is a little insulted by that question and it shows on her face. Persephone doesn’t even have the decency to look ashamed by it.)
Sarah Price: Of course I believe I have a chance at defeating Frankie, with all due respect to him! I would have backed out of this match as soon as it was announced if I felt I wasn’t ready to compete at this level. This is my first chance to earn my way into a contendership match and I definitely want to go to Wicked Games. It’s pretty obvious I am the underdog, and I always have been. Frankie is the favorite to win this match, and perhaps the favorite to defeat Jesse. Frankie has all the motive in the world to win and that is so he can do something stupid like lay down and let the doctor pin him should she even retain against Terry and make it another championship defense. Honestly, there is a lot going on right now, and I just plan on taking it one day at a time. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain, and this is a position I don’t mind being in at all. When I actually win the Interwire Championship, most of the free world is going to feel rather silly they didn’t see it coming.
(Persephone raises a perfectly arched eyebrow while an amused smile crosses her face.)
Persephone Tsitsipas: And you’re actually declaring yourself the champion!
Sarah Price: I guess I am. If I don’t believe in myself, how can I expect anyone else too?
Persephone Tsitsipas: I guess.
Sarah Price: Just watch and see.
(Sarah flashes Persephone a confident smile and heads off, and the camera immediately cuts to an area a few feet away, ‘The Wrecking Ball’ Shortfuse PAKA is seen standing off to the side, large grin on his perpetually angry face. He heard every word Sarah had spoken. PAKA nods to himself and he walks off as well, which sends Voltage to break.)

(Voltage returns and cuts right to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: And it is for A NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH AT WICKED GAMES FOR THE INTERWIRE… CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Come Together” by Gary Clark and Junkie XL plays to a mixed reaction as Frankie Paradise comes out to the ring taking a spin around. He pulls out a lollipop from his trunks and puts it on his mouth before making his way to the ring with a grin)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Los Angeles California, weighing in at 225 pounds… THE KING OF SWING, FRANKIE… PARADISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Frankie Paradise is one man not to look over when you face him in a match. For sure his sleazy look and attitude may make him seem like easy pickings but he’s not one to look over.
James Peters: This week he has a chance to get a chance at the Interwire Championship, a lot is on the line and I’m sure Frankie will not disappoint going into this match!
(Frankie enters the ring and leans against the ropes fixing his hair and taking off his sunglasses. He blows a kiss to the crowd as “Come Together” fades out and he gets ready in his corner. “Land of The Innocent” by Feathers plays to cheers as Sarah Price makes her way to the stage. She circles around the stage before making her way to the ring high fiving members of the crowd as she skips down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from London UK, weighing in at 110 pounds… THE GUARDIAN ANGEL, SARAH… PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Speaking of, behind all the niceness Sarah Price is one hell of an athlete. I could see her moving onto Wicked Games to get a number one contender shot at the Interwire Title.
James Peters: Well I can see either of these competitors winning, both of them have worked hard and both of them are on the rise here on Voltage and believe me there big moment is coming quick. It’s just survival of the fittest out of here, this is certainly going to be a fun match.
(Sarah Price jumps into the ring and takes a look at Frankie Paradise, who is leaning in the corner watching her, before jumping up to the top rope and pointing around the crowd. She jumps down as “Land of The Innocent” fades out and the Ref signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: FRANKIE! HE HAS HIS HAND ON THE ROPES! Frankie lives on as Sarah looks at the Ref in confusion. She sighs as she gets up to her feet. I don’t think Frankie can even stand let alone stay alive in this match. But he’s doing just that as he’s slowly crawling up to his feet! Sarah quickly locking in a headlock as she lifts him up!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Land of The Innocent” plays up as Sarah Price sits up in shock. She’s trying to comprehend what’s happening when the Ref helps her up and raises her hand in victory. She gives a smile as she happily celebrates with an energetic attitude)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner, and advancing to the Interwite NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH AT WICKED GAMES! SARAH PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: :wow: What an excellent showcase by both of these elitists for sure, but in the end Sarah took advantage of Frankie’s arrogance and managed to pull out a win!
James Peters: Even if both showed great athleticism and endurance. But for Sarah Price, a new page has opened in her fairytale, it’ll be nice to see what comes in the upcoming weeks for the Guardian Angel! She will officially be taking on Jesse Barlow at Wicked Games!
(Sarah Price leaves the ring and begins high fiving fans as Frankie Paradise is seen in shock as he argues with the Ref.)
Rich Russillo: WAIT A SECOND! THAT’S SHORTFUSE PAKA! PAKA JUST CLOTHESLINED SARAH STRAIGHT TO HELL ON THE STAGE!
(Take camera cuts to PAKA, who is on top of Sarah nailing her with devastating palm strike after palm strike!)
James Peters: SHORTFUSE PAKA HAS PULLED SARAH UP BY THE HAIR AND I CAN’T HELP BUT WONDER IF HE IS STILL TRYING TO SHOW PROVENCAL THAT YOU HAVE TO TREAT THE WOMEN OF EAW LIKE YOU WOULD A MAN, OR IF HE IS JUST DOING THIS BECAUSE HE DOESN’T LIKE SARAH! EITHER WAY, PAKA HAS HOISTED SARAH ON HIS SHOULDER AND NO! NO! DON’T DO IT PAKA! THIS WOMAN JUST GOT HERSELF INTO A CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDERSHIP MATCH!
Rich Russillo: :damn: PAKA JUST THREW SARAH LIKE A LAWN DART HEAD FIRST INTO THE SOLAR LED PANELING THAT IS ON OUR STAGE! SARAH IS OUT! DEAR GOD! I HOPE SHE’S NOT INJURED!
(Provencal and Hajime have come rushing out, along with a plethora of EAW officials and medical personale. They immediately begin tending to Sarah, while Provencal and Hajime attempt to drag PAKa away from the scene. Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Febreze Air in the limited edition Fresh-Harvest Pumpkin scent! The air refresher comes with OdorClear, which is Febreze’s own odor elimination technology. :wow: Stock up and let your house smell like Fall all year long.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the broadcast booth. James is seen sitting between Consuela Rose Ava and Charlie Marr, and he doesn’t look all that thrilled by it.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage. As you can see, I’ve been joined by the EAW World Champion, Charlie Marr, and the 24/7 Contract Holder, Consuela Rose Ava. Welcome to the booth, both of you.
Charlie Marr: The pleasure is all yours and it’s definitely all Consuela’s. It must be nice for someone like her to be in the presence of true greatness, and around someone who has proven time and time again to be a winner and credible representation of what a world champion should be.
Consuela Rose Ava: You know what the sad part about that is? You really believe all that bullshit you just said.
Charlie Marr: It’s the truth, sweetheart.
Consuela Rose Ava: :usure:?!
(‘Thunderstruck’ by ACDC kicks up and Korey Gaines walks out to a mostly positive reaction.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM OKLAHOMA CITY… WEIGHING IN AT 170 POUNDS… HE IS THE AERIAL WONDER KOREY GAINES!
Charlie Marr: Now here comes a sorry ass troll who really needs his social media accounts taken away from him.
Consuela Rose Ava: … that awkward moment when the two of us agree on something.
James Peters: Make that three of us. In any event, Korey comes into this match looking to score a win over the former PURE Champion. With Wicked Games quickly approaching, there’s no doubt Korey is going to use this opportunity to try and send a message to you, Consuela. Korey had a lot of things to say about you earlier tonight, as I know you heard.
Consuela Rose Ava: I heard him loud and clear, and believe me, Korey is going to get all the fire and energy I have inside of me at Wicked Games. I think it’s hilarious he is going to attempt to use my sister to send a message to me. That’s about as likely as Charlie trying to use Mr. DEDEDE to send a message to Camille.
Charlie Marr: If you really think you’re going to annoy me by bringing up what happened last weekend, then you need to then you need to try harder at being a troll in your own right. I’m still the EAW World Champion and face of Voltage, and whatever the result was in Egypt can’t change those two facts.
(Korey gets into the ring and gets settled, and his music fades out. It’s quickly replaced by “Gangsta” by New Years Day. The crowd roars as Ms. Extreme walks onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 135 POUNDS… SHE IS THE RED QUEEN MS. EXTREME!
Charlie Marr: I hope you’re ready to have one less sibling to live in the shadow of, Cuntseula. Once I’m done with Camille at Wicked Games, you can get on your knees and thank daddy for doing you and the rest of your crappy family a favor.
Consuela Rose Ava: Isn’t it Jordie’s job to stay down on her knees? Where is she anyway?
Charlie Marr: Strep throat :mjgrin:
James Peters: Welp.
Consuela Rose Ava: Anyways, we are looking at the woman who is going to become the new EAW Champion at Wicked Games and I could not be more excited! Camille has been training hard for Barbed Wire Massacre III and if there was anyone who was made for a match like that, it’s Camille Jane Ava.
Charlie Marr: I’m undefeated in Barbed Wire Massacre matches.
Consuela Rose Ava: Well by your logic so is Impact so you’re really not that special now are you?
James Peters: :lupe:
(Ms. Extreme slides inside the ring and once her music fades, the referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Charlie Marr: I’m already bored.
Consuela Rose Ava: :skip: They haven’t even locked up yet.
Charlie Marr: *yawns*
James Peters: I really don’t feel comfortable sitting between the two of you. Rich, come byke.
Consuela Rose Ava: I’m here to call the match and study my opponent for Wicked Games. Nothing more.
Charlie Marr: :mjgrin:
James Peters: Ms. Extreme gets us started by charging towards Gaines! Gaines scoops her up and immediately runs her over to the corner! He slams Ms. Extreme into the corner and looks for a quick corner clothesline! Ms. Extreme ducks between Gaines’ legs, whirls around, and catches him with a dropkick to the back! Gaines slams chest first into the ropes and Ms. Extreme rolls him up from behind!
Consuela Rose Ava: Too early to expect a win, and I think Camille knows that. She’s already back to her feet and helping Gaines up as well. Gaines with a stiff right hand that connects with Camille’s jaw, and she fires back with a right hand of her own! They’re both exchanging punches right now and I’m dying to know, Charlie, are you ready to get your ass beat at Wicked Games by my sister?
Charlie Marr: The day a slag like Camille Jane Ava beats me is the day I hang my boots up and call it a day.
Consuela Rose Ava: I can’t wait for you to eat those words.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme whips Gaines in the corner and rushes forward… only to be met with two boots right to the face! Gaines quickly grabs Ms. Extreme and throws her into the corner! He attempts to throw a kick, but she catches his foot! Ms. Extreme tries to throw a forearm, but Gaines blocks the shot! Gaines with a huge right hand to the jaw of Ms. Extreme and he immediately follows that up with a shoulder thrust to the gut! He does that several more times before grabbing Ms. Extreme and dragging her towards the ropes!
Charlie Marr: Gaines just took Camille’s face and dragged it across the ropes. Imagine how much worse she’s going to look when I do that in Barbed Wire Massacre? That match is a playground of sorts for me. I’ve won the only I’ve been placed in.
Consuela Rose Ava: And Camille thrives in hardcore situations, in case you’ve forgotten. She knows exactly what she needs to do at Wicked Games to end your shitty title reign and bring that EAW World Championship home.
James Peters: Gaines has pulled Ms. Extreme back to her feet, and she is fighting back with a series of forearms now! Gaines lets her go and Ms. Extreme slips behind Gaines, looking to bring him down with a German suplex! Gaines fights back with several elbow shots to the side of the head! He grips Ms. Extreme’s arm and pulls her into a wristlock, but Ms. Extreme quickly works her way over to the ropes, jumps on the second one, and reverses into a beautiful springboard armdrag!
Consuela Rose Ava: Camille and Korey are back up now and it’s Camille grabbing Korey and taking him down with another arm drag! Camille with a third… and a fourth! Korey wisely rolls out of the way this time instead of getting back to his feet but Camille isn’t about to let him get out of the ring! She takes off after Korey and catches him in the back of the knee! Korey is down to one knee and Ms. Extreme grabs him by the back of the neck and flips over… driving Korey’s head into the mat! Yes! Camille with the cover!
Charlie Marr: The dumb bitch forgot where she was in the ring. Gaines is right there by the ropes and the referee sees his foot on the bottom one.
Consuela Rose Ava: Well here’s the thing, Charlie. Ring positioning isn’t really going to matter in Barbed Wire Massacre now is it? Anything goes and you having your foot on the ropes isn’t going to save your title reign.
Charlie Marr: The only thing that’s going to need saving is your sister because I’m not fucking around when it comes to this match, Consuela. I’m going to make everything I’ve done in the past look like child’s play once that bell rings. I’m sick of little cunts like you and your other little four whoreswomen talking shit and thinking you can look down on Charlie Marr and how important he is to this brand and this business. The EAW Universe is getting put on notice come Wicked Games because I plan on being EAW World Champion for a hell of a lot longer.
Consuela Rose Ava: If you do somehow manage to defeat Camille, and believe me, no one thinks you will, don’t think I won’t be waiting in the wings to cash in my contract and take that championship for myself. I’ve come close to doing it before, and there won’t be anything stopping me if you do somehow pull off a miracle.
Charlie Marr: You know better than to come sniffing around this tree. Shit didn’t work out for you the last time we were in the ring together, and it damn sure isn’t going to work out for you when my championship is on the line.
(All the while the banter between Charlie and Consuela went on, Ms. Extreme continued to work over Korey Gaines. She had pulled him back towards the center of the ring and kept him grounded with a sleeperhold. Thus far, ‘The Aerial Wonder’ had been unable to make his way back towards the ropes to force a break.)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is looking solid in this match. There’s no doubt she is looking to prove that she’s a worthy challenger for that EAW World Championship.
Consuela Rose Ava: Camille finally releases the sleeperhold and gets up, pulling Korey up with her! She drags him over to the corner and slams him face first into the second turnbuckle!
(In fact, Ms. Extreme slams Korey’s face into the turnbuckle several more times.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Camille pulls Korey up and whips him across the ring! Korey slams into the opposite of turnbuckles and she runs towards him! Camille with a beautiful handstand headscissors takedown AND NOW SHE IS GOING FOR RED HANDED!
Charlie Marr: That slippery little fuck Gaines just pulled himself out of the ring though!
James Peters: Korey playing it safe as Ms. Extreme is yelling at him to get back into the ring!
Charlie Marr: I didn’t know these bitches don’t have brains, why can’t she just leave the ring? Can you answer that for your stupid whore sister?
Consuela Rose Ava: :skip: Korey quickly jumping on the apron as CAMILLE LANDS A PUNCH! Camille pulling Korey back into the ring as she lifts him up! SUPLEX! Korey grabbing his back as Camille pulls him right back up! GERMAN SUPLEX- NO! GAINES LANDS ON HIS FEET! KOREY LANDING A WELL PLACED DROPKICK ON THE BACK OF CAMILLE SENDING HER DOWN!
Charlie Marr: If your sister is having trouble beating a predator like Gaines, then please inform me on how you think she’s capable of beating the best champion in EAW today!
Consuela Rose Ava: We’ll see as this match goes on, besides it’s not like you can beat Camille flawlessly right? Even you can’t deny that when your in a Barbed Wire Massacre match.
(While the arguing continues Camille slowly got up to her feet as Korey broke into a run. Camille side stepped him as he tried to go for a basement dropkick and landed a brutal stomp on his face. Korey grabbed at his face as Camille lands more stomps down aiming for his gut.)
Charlie Marr: Stop giving her false confidence you stupid bitch. I’m not saying that, I’m saying that Korey Gaines is not on my level. If your sister can’t seem to rid this match with ease then what gives you a reason to state that she even has a chance for a second at Wicked Games.
Consuela Rose Ava: Don’t jump to conclusions so quickly. Like watch the match as Camille is taking it slowly grabbing Korey by the head and landing some stiff punches on him. Korey still slowly getting up as he’s fighting through the pain! KOREY WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT FORCING HER BACK! CAMILLE LANDING A FOREARM BUT KOREY TURNS AROUND! DISCUS ELBOW! Camille takes another step back as Korey is on the offense! CAMILLE LANDING ANOTHER KNEE BACK! But Korey steps back! SUPERKICK!!!
James Peters: Camille is still up though as she’s dazed! ROUNDHOUSE KICK! CAMILLE FALLS FLAT TO THE GROUND AS GAINES GOES FOR THE PIN!
Consuela Rose Ava: KICK OUT!
Charlie Marr: Look at her, she’s having trouble even staying afloat, was I wrong?
Consuela Rose Ava: Yes very, as Gaines shaking his head in frustration. He gets up as Camille is crawling up using the ropes! GAINES KICKING CAMILLE ON THE BACK OF THE LEG FORCING HER TO HOP ON ONE LEG! Camille isn’t letting up though as she’s firing back with vicious forearms! CAMILLE WITH A STIFF FOREARM FORCING KOREY TO A KNEE AS SHE RUNS TO THE ROPES! KOREY WITH A PUNCH TO THE GUT OF CAMILLE AS SHE TURNS AROUND! BUT CAMILLE GRABS HIM! SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG! You see? She’s still fighting back, how is that for you?
Charlie Marr: I’m gonna get straight to the point, this match is still boring, and I’m still not impressed by anything that slut is doing in this match, in fact I was never impressed by anything she did.
James Peters: Anyways, Camille getting up as Korey is quickly crawling to his feet! CAMILLE RUNS! BASEBALL SLIDE! BUT KOREY GRABS A HOLD OF THE ROPES AS HE JUST BARELY STAYS IN THE RING! Korey in pain as he rolls back in and Camille pulls him right back up! EXPLODER SUPLEX! Korey in pain as Camille pulls him right back up! ANOTHER ONE! Korey quickly staggering up as he falls right into Camille’s grasp! TWIST OF FATE- NO! GAINES REVERSES MANEUVERING OUT OF IT! KOREY WITH A DROP TOE HOLD SENDING CAMILLE INTO THE ROPES! HE’S GOING FOR THE WRECKING BALL LEG DROP! BUT CAMILLE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! NOBODY HOME FOR GAINES AS HE SHOOTS UP WITH PAIN ON THE APRON!
Consuela Rose Ava: Korey stumbles to ringside as he grabs a hold of the apron trying to catch a breath. BUT CAMILLE! A BLIND FURY! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP OFF THE APRON SNAPPING KOREY IN HALF! Camille throwing Korey into the ring as she rolls in herself and going for the pin!
Charlie Marr: See, kickout. It’s clear it’s either one of two things, she can’t beat Gaines, or she’s just fucking weak.
Consuela Rose Ava: Do you ever shut up and just wait?
Charlie Marr: I already have enough evidence to prove my point, that after Wicked Games I will still be your EAW Champion, like it or not.
James Peters: Ok then. Camille grabbing Korey by the arm and sending him to a irish whip! DROPKICK- NO! KOREY GRABS A HOLD OF THE ROPES LEAVING NOBODY HOME FOR CAMILLE! Korey breaking into a run wasting no time taking advantage of the opportunity! JUMPING KNEE TO CAMILLE! Camille taking a step back as Korey grabs her! SPINNING BACK KICK TO THE GUT OF CAMILLE SENDING HER BACK TO THE CORNER! NOW KOREY UNLOADING ON CAMILLE WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH! KOREY STEPPING BACK! LEAPING KNEE TO THE GUT OF CAMILLE! LETTIN’ THE AIR OUT CONNECTS AS CAMILLE COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND! Korey stumbling up to the top rope now as he’s looking for something big! 405!
Consuela Rose Ava: NO!
Charlie Marr: What you scared that Korey Gaines is about to win?
Consuela Rose Ava: Watch the match. CAMILLE GOT HER KNEES UP AVOIDING THE IMPLODING 450° SPLASH!!!
Charlie Marr: What the fuck…
Consuela Rose Ava: You finally admitting defeat?
Charlie Marr: Hell no, this doesn’t change the fact for a second that your sister will ever beat me. Never, there’s nothing you, that bland bitch Andrea, or frankly any of the whores backstage can do about it, I am the best EAW Champion around and you better learn that nobody will stop me.
James Peters: :ohlawd:
Consuela Rose Ava: Oh please. Say you do win, I said this before I won’t be afraid to cash in on your ass and finish the job and maybe you will gain an ounce of respect for my sister and I.
Charlie Marr: Shut the fuck up and listen, you tried that shit before and I still won at Territorial Invasion and like Gaines, you are to fucking afraid to cash that thing in, the statement does not change any more than it will before. You come out there and you try and cash in, you’ll end up exactly the same like your sister on the fucking ground where you belong.
Consuela Rose Ava: Prove it tough guy.
(As Charlie slaps Consuela right in the face, Ms. Extreme takes notice. She drops Korey and goes straight out of the ring arguing with Charlie.)
Ms. Extreme (Off-Mic): What the fuck was that for?!?
Charlie Marr: I’m teaching your sister a lesson, you wanna be next? I’ll end you before you even get to Wicked Games try me.
Ms. Extreme (Off-Mic): Let’s see-
James Peters: WAIT! KOREY GRABBING CAMILLE! HE SLAMS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE! KOREY TAKING OPPORTUNITY AS I THINK HE’S TRYING TO PULL OUT THE WIN IN CONTROVERSIAL FASHION! WAIT CONSUELA TACKLING GAINES! CONSUELA ATTACKING GAINES! KOREY HAD THIS MATCH WON BUT CONSUELA WASN’T HAVING IT! THE REF DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! HE’S SIGNALING FOR THE BELL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: This match is over but it isn’t stopping Consuela and Camille as they both stomp down on Korey! BUT CHARLIE! CHARLIE NAILING CAMILLE RIGHT ON THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH THE EAW TITLE! CHARLIE STOMPING AWAY ON CONSUELA AS KOREY JOINS IN! CONSUELA IS HELPLESS AS SHE’S BEING DOUBLE TEAMED AND IS CLEARLY TRYING TO RETREAT BACKING OFF FROM THE ACTION! BUT LOOK! CAMILLE! SHE’S ON THE BARRICADE! SHE BREAKS INTO A RUN AND LEAPS OFF THE BARRICADE TACKLING BOTH CHARLIE AND KOREY! CAMILLE MOVING FORWARD AND ATTACKING BOTH CHARLIE AND KOREY AS CONSUELA QUICKLY WASTES NO TIME JOINING IN! THIS IS MADNESS AS NONE OF THEM ARE STOPPING!! IF THIS IS A PREVIEW OF WICKED GAMES FOR ALL OF THEM I COULDN’T IMAGINE WHAT COULD HAPPEN THEN!
(The camera then cuts to security rushing down trying to seperate the four as they’re all trying to attack one another. They reluctantly backs off as they don’t want this fight to end. The last shot is all of them are yelling at one another as the camera fades out.)

(Voltage returns and cuts to the broadcast booth. Rich has returned and James seems pretty relieved to have his partner back.)
Rich Russillo: It was never going to go well with Consuela and Charlie on commentary was it?
James Peters: :mjcry:
Rich Russillo: In any event, we were informed during the break that as a result of the breakdown during the Ms. Extreme/Korey Gaines match, next week’s main event will feature the Ms. Extreme and Consuela Rosa Ava taking on Charlie Marr and Korey Gaines!
James Peters: Well that should be fun considering Charlie doesn’t play well with others.
Rich Russillo: But actually.
James Peters: Anywho, we want to go ahead and switch gears for a moment and talk about the upcoming Interwire Championship match at Wicked Games. This feud between the champion, Dr. Bethany Blue, and the former champion, Terry Chambers, has become extremely personal. In a way, I almost feel bad for being so hooked on it. Terry has had his name dragged through the mud and had his family thrown into this, and quite frankly, Dr. Bethany Blue is just proving herself to be one of EAW’s most deadly competitors.
Rich Russillo: That is literally true. There’s not a single doubt in my head that she’s not capable of doing some really disturbing stuff, and we have already seen her sink to several lows we didn’t think she would go too.
James Peters: Earlier today, our very own Sofia Clarke sat down with Terry to discuss the rivalry with Bethany and some other things. Lets take a look at how that conversation went.
( EARLIER TODAY )
The scene opens up on the balcony of Terry Chambers’ hotel room. It’s an absolute picturesque day, and the camera makes sure to get some views of the ocean and crystal clear blue skies. Sofia and Terry are sitting in two chairs, enjoying the weather, and casually sipping on mineral water.
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for joining me this morning, Terry.
Terry Chambers: No worries.
Sofia Clarke: Lets take a trip down memory lane and go back to Pain for Pride for just a moment. The rivalry you had with Drake King on Showdown isn’t all that different than the one you have right now with Dr. Bethany Blue. Drake and the other members of The Roundtable attempted to end your career and things got pretty personal. Besides the emotions you felt from winning your first championship, how did it feel to defeat a man that had been a thorn in your side?
(A smirk crosses Terry’s face as he thinks for a moment.)
Terry Chambers: If you don’t mind Sofia, let’s go further back to Pain for Pride 7 in 2014. I’m one of the hottest prospects and just defended the Young Lions Cup. Future is bright, and then I fell. A lot of injuries and ego getting the better of me. Failing over and over again. Passed up by so many, including Drake King. After Drake won the title, he chose me to make a statement on and not only did he almost end my career, he nearly ended my life. Hours after that attack, I remember being laid up in the hospital with my daughter in tears. It was that moment I wasn’t going to take it anymore. Opportunity never knocked so I decided I had to kick the door down. Funny part was he chose to target me and then he was looking over his shoulder every possible second when I decided I was done being pushed around. And then Pain for Pride, I’ll never forget that night in Atlanta. I finally broke through the glass ceiling. And to answer your question, it felt satisfying getting the pinfall over him. But the best part was the aftermath when he realized his world came crashing down. The look on his face said it all. The expression of being WRONG. The realization that Terry Chambers is legit. Pretty sure the message was sent to him loud and clear to think twice on your next target you never knew you’d push too far. I’ll take this time to say I was wrong about Drake though lasting on Dynasty. He’s been grindin and even I can admit, from an IN RING standpoint, he has my respect.
Sofia Clarke: :wow: Speaking of people who have gotten personal with you, Dr. Blue is relentless, and we can’t deny that she’s proven multiple times over that she will do whatever it takes to win a match. How do you plan on approaching this Stretcher Match with her come Wicked Games?
Terry Chambers: Well, whether I like admitting it or not, despite all the ignorance she possesses, Bethany can be a bit clever sometimes. I walked into Territorial Invasion expecting a title defense, not walking into a trap she set. It’s just as simple as that, she set a trap and it worked and now she’s champion. I’m going to walk into Wicked Games the same way I did at Pain for Pride, to send the message you pushed someone too far and it ended up costing you everything. I’m not stupid either, I know Bethany has something up her sleeve for Wicked Games, but I promise you I’ll be ready for anything. She also might have an advantage in numbers with Goldstein, but I’ve been fighting the odds and the numbers my whole life, why would I stop now? It got me my first Interwire Championship facing the Round Table, and it will get me my second against Bethany and her antics.
Sofia Clarke: What would regaining the Interwire Championship mean to you?
Terry Chambers: Everything, to simply put it. I want that second chance to make that championship stand out as a beacon of opportunity that I didn’t in my first reign. One of the main reasons I wanted to win that championship at Pain for Pride was because that Interwire Championship deserved better than Drake King, and it damn sure now deserves better than a bootleg doctor. That Interwire Championship was the symbol of the hard work I put in since my rebuild began and it just got ripped away from me. I promise I will do everything in my power to get it back in my possession. This match might be another trap but I’d rather die fighting to get that Interwire title back than just sit back and watch Bethany continue to tarnish its legacy.
Sofia Clarke: What would mean more to you; regaining the title or ending Dr. Blue?
Terry Chambers: Trick question Sofia, both. There’s literally no definitive answer I will give you. Both are equally as important to me. I already said I will do whatever it takes to take the championship back, and I will stop at nothing to make Bethany pay for the sins she committed and the hell she put me and my family through the past several months. She’s gonna learn quickly like many others, you don’t pull this shit on me and get away with it.
(Terry’s voice has an edge to it with that last statement.)
Sofia Clarke: Besides regaining the championship, what other aspirations do you have for this season? This is one of the most exciting times to be an Elitists, especially with Road to Redemption and King of Elite right around the corner.
Terry Chambers: A whole lot of things.
(Sofia can’t help but smile at that. It was the answer she had been expecting.)
Terry Chambers: I was never given the chance to flourish and be who I am today and never got to experience most of those things such as King Of Elite. I do hope to keep carrying the Voltage flag despite the negativity and chaos surrounding it and the management and I will do that as long as I’m a member of this roster. There’s still lots of talented people in that Voltage locker room I would love to have a match with. There’s also getting a chance at Charlie if he were to survive Camille, because who wouldn’t love the chance to free the EAW Championship from him and grip on this brand? But mainly, just keep going out there and performing to the best of my abilities and just keep raising my stock one match at a time.
Sofia Clarke: What’s the difference between the Terry Chambers from 12 months ago and the Terry Chambers that is sitting here with me right now?
Terry Chambers: The big difference is he just doesn’t let anybody push him around anymore and that’s why he’s sitting here with you right now instead of in catering. A year ago Sofia, I was the guy always thrown in the battle royal contendership matches but never making it past top seven or so. I was also the guy who had mini rivalries with the new up and comers to make them look good. I was that low on the ladder in EAW because simply, I let it happen. I was a promising talent for a reason when I first signed in 2014. In the current day, I’m breaking more barriers that were put in my way to keep me down in one day than I ever did while I was sitting on the sidelines watching others play when I should’ve been out there. The Terry Chambers from 12 months ago just finally realized who the fuck he is and what he’s capable of.
Sofia Clarke: Where do you see yourself 12 months from now?
(Terry pauses to think about that question for a moment.)
Terry Chambers: I see myself continuing to raise the bar and exceeding expectations that were set for me three years ago after my Grand Rampage incident. I just see myself continuing to shut my critics the fuck up who said I wouldn’t amount to anything and I missed my chance. Hopefully still Interwire Champion after I take back what’s mine at Wicked Games. Hopefully still on Voltage because I would love to be the guy who whips the show into better shape than it is now. But if not, my journey continues elsewhere and I do what I said earlier, just continue to keep rising my stock each match.
Sofia Clarke: What do you hope to accomplish for the rest of your career and how would you like to be remembered?
Terry Chambers: What I hope to accomplish is first taking that championship off Bethany’s wacky ass and becoming a two time Interwire Champion. Then of course is your first World Championship as that should be on everybody’s to do list as a wrestler. It would just be like having that moment thinking you weren’t supposed to be here, and yet here you are. How I’d wanna be remembered is mainly I accomplished that sense of satisfaction I had with my career loving how it turned out. Getting the message out that it’s never too late to be great. And the message that no matter how hard someone tries to hold you down from succeeding, you just don’t give a shit what they think and do it anyways.
(Sofia has a follow up question to that.)
Sofia Clarke: What’s more important perhaps, is how do you want your kids to remember your career?
Terry Chambers: My kids? Everything I’ve done since April when I came back from a near death experience is things they can use in the real world. Don’t stay down and never, ever sell yourself short. When my son Landon beat cancer this past May, I made a promise to him that I will fight back against anything that tries to hurt me like he did with his cancer. They already saw me do that in my rivalry with Drake King, and now in a few weeks, they’ll have another example of that.
Sofia Clarke: One last question, Terry. Do you have any final words for Dr. Bethany Bliue?
Terry Chambers: Whatever happens to her, was brought on to her by herself. This could have been a wrestling match for the Interwire Championship but SHE was the one who wanted to make this personal for no reason at all. She was the one who kept stabbing me with needles, she was the one who drug my personal life into this with my ex-wife and kids, and she was the one who thought it was a good idea to steal the Interwire Championship from me. This fantasy land she’s living in being the Interwire Champion is about to come to a crashing halt. Bethany may have gold on her shoulder and the websites may call her Interwire Champion but Bethany wouldn’t know the first damn thing about being a champion. I’m walking into Wicked Games with ONE thing on my mind to become Interwire Champion once again and I refuse to buy into her bullshit anymore and I’m gonna be proud to take that championship back away from her. There’s only one thing left to say, no matter what happens, Bethany will NEVER be the same after this is done and in the history books.
(Sofia stands up and Terry stands up as well. The two shake hands.)
Sofia Clarke: Terry, thank you. It’s been such a pleasure.
(The interview fades to black and Voltage cuts to commercial.)
(Commercial break for grape jelly.)
(After the groundbreaking commercial for grape jelly concludes, Voltage returns and cuts right to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME MY GUEST AT THIS TIME… REX MCALLISTER!!!
(“Alive” by POD begins to play throughout the building and fans rise to their feet. As soon as the former two-time world champion steps onto the stage, the EAW Universe showers him with love and praise. Rex grins and begins walking down the ramp. Once he gets inside the ring, Bella passes the microphone. Once Rex’s music stops playing, he begins speaking straight from his heart.)
Rex McAllister: As stellar as my record is this season, I can’t say that I’m happy with where I’m at right now. Battle of Egypt was an eye opening experience for me in a lot of ways. Watching my fiancée cash in her briefcase and become the world champion she’s always been meant to be, coupled with my own performance against Chris Elite and Drake King, really got me thinking about what I want out of this season. At Pain for Pride 11, I walked into Las Vegas on top of the world. I was the EAW World Champion and trust me, there is no better feeling than being a headliner at the biggest show of the year. I knew my championship defense against Diamond Cage was going to be one of the toughest battles of my career, and it ended with me experiencing one of the most crushing defeats of my career. Losing the championship at Pain for Pride hurt like hell and at that point, I didn’t have anyone around me to help shoulder the burden and pick me up after such a loss. It was tough dealing with that for a few days if I’m being honest. However, you guys know me. I’m nothing if not resilient.
(Rex rakes a hand through his hair.)
Rex McAllister: I’ve always prided myself on my ability to bounce back, and that’s what I did a few short months later. Defeating Chris Elite and becoming World Heavyweight Champion was incredible because not many Elitists can say that they’ve held two separate world championships in the same calendar year. I’m still proud of that. Headlining a second Pain for Pride in a row isn’t something I necessarily considered but I’m not shocked at all that it happened. I work hard and constantly put myself in position to be seen as the best, and I know that very few people are able to truly test me and beat me. After coming up short once again at Pain for Pride, I had a moment down there at ringside. I told myself that no matter what I would do everything in my ability to get back there for a third time and to regain the world championship along the way.
(The crowd pops. They want to see Rex McAllister get the title back as well!)
Rex McAllister: I’m just going to put it out there. I will be the EAW World Champion before the season is out. If that takes me right back to the Pain for Pride main event for the third straight year, that’s alright too. At this point I’m more motivated and determined to prove my worth to this company. I know a lot of people believe I have nothing to prove. I could retire tomorrow and could easily say that I have accomplished more in my time than most Elitists ever will. But I’m far from finished and I’m definitely not satisfied. I don’t like seeing the EAW Championship in undeserving hands, and I’m ready to make sure that this Elitist wins world championship number three.
(Rex pauses and as he does, “Stitch” by Wage War begins to play. The crowd erupts for Jack Ripley as he steps out onto the stage and heads straight for the ring. Jack is given his own microphone and he looks at Rex thoughtfully for a few minutes.)
Jack Ripley: I’m glad you’re out here telling all of us what’s going to happen for the rest of the season, like there’s not a lockerroom full of hungry men and women who want the chance to become world champion too.
Rex McAllister: That’s the beauty of this sport; the competitiveness.
Jack Ripley: You’re right and I’m going to be honest with you. I’m one of those Elitists who are hungry and looking to capture world championship gold. I know damn well people are never going to respect me unless I win a world championship, and after the absolute disaster the last few months on Dynasty have been for me, I need to step up and challenge myself more than ever. I’ve never shied away from competition in singles or tag team action, and I’m not about to start now. That being said, Wicked Games is approaching and so far, you and I are both on the outside looking in, Rex. Neither of us are close to that world championship. You lost your opportunity because you let Charlie cheat you, and Dynasty made a mockery of me and of the National Elite Championship, so now I’ve got to rebuild myself.
Rex McAllister: So what are you saying exactly, Jack? Do you want a match with me at Wicked Games?
Jack Ripley: :mjgrin: That’s exactly what I’m saying. Why not? Just a good ole fashioned wrestling match against two incredible wrestlers.
(Rex doesn’t even have to think this proposition over. It’s basically a no brainer.)
Rex McAllister: You’re on.
(The crowd erupts as Jack extends his hand and Rex shakes it. They shake on their upcoming match and afterwards, Rex drops down and rolls out of the ring. Voltage fades into a commercial.)
(Commercial break for sleep deprivation. It’s a real bitch, that one.)
(Voltage returns and of course Ripley is already in the ring. Bella is already standing front and center.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 202 pounds… JAAACCCCKKK RIPPPPPLPEEYYY!!’
Rich Russillo: The Straight Shooter Jack Ripley looks to shoot his shot here in the main event on Voltage as he has the opportunity to step into the ring with the monstrosity that is Terry Chambers. A win over an individual with the calibre of Terry Chambers could do wonders for him in the future, but he’s gonna have to go through hell and earth to do that.
( ‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragon hits along with an explosive reaction. With a confident smirk planted on his face, he glances towards the audiences before making his way down to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Detroit, Michigan, weighing in at 287 pounds….. TERRRRRRYY CHAAAAAMMMBERRRRSSSSS!
James Peters: Terry Chambers has been unstoppable and dominant for a long time and he seeks to continue that mean streak against Ripley. Ripley is gonna have to stay away from his penetrating arsenal of strikes and submissions if he wants to have a good chance of walking out of here as a winner.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: This main event is officially underway as Ripley and Chambers gather in the middle of the ring. Both men have fired shots at each other this week and tonight they have the opportunity to prove who’s superior to the other. Terry obviously has that colossal power and devastating strikes, but Ripley is known for his resilience and techniques, so this will definitely be a good one…
James Peters: Both elitists now engaging in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Chambers immediately utilizing his power as he muscles Ripley into the corner turnbuckle. The referee separated the two as they continue to stare into each other. Chambers with that penetrating gaze on his eyes as Ripley keeps himself focused on the task at hand.
Rich Russillo: Ripley circles around Chambers applies a headlock as Terry shoves him into the ropes. Ripley sprints across the ring as Chambers leans down. RIPLEY WITH A KICK! But Chambers grabs and takes his legs out. Chambers goes for a kick, but Ripley ducks it. Ripley gets back up to his feet as Chambers picks him up. T-5!!!
James Peters: NO!! Ripley quickly escapes the T-5 as he reels into the corner. Ripley sits in the corner as Chambers stares him down. Chambers was this close to already put a cap on this match this early, but Ripley saw it coming.
Rich Russillo: Both men now raising their hands, looking for a weak spot as Ripley circles around him once again. Chambers applies a headlock, Ripley shoves him into the ropes and releases the hold. He ducks down, Chambers jumps over him. Ripley leapfrogs over Chambers. Chamber rebounds off the ropes… SUPERKICK!!! NO!!! CHAMBERS CATCHES HIS FOOT!! Chambers holds his foot as he nods his head.
James Peters: CHAMBERS WITH A KNIFE-EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST OF RIPLEY!! HE LIGHTS RIPLEY UP WITH JABS AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER. HE FOLLOWS HIM AND DRIVES HIS SHOULDER INTO HIM! HE JUMPS UP!!! JUMPING ENZIGURI!! THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE AS CHAMBERS THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!

BUT RIPLEY EVADES IT ONCE AGAIN!! RIPLEY SHOOTS OFF THE APRON!! CHAMBERS DUCKS AS RIPLEY ROLLS INTO THE GROUND….. CHAMBERS WITH A BIG BOOT, CRUSHING THE FACE OF JACK RIPLEY!!

AND HE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH ANOTHER ONE!! Chambers rocked by the forearms as Ripley springs off the ropes! CHAMBERS LIFTS RIPLEY INTO THE AIR!! GRABS HIS WAIST!! AND PLANTS HIM WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! POP-UP GERMAN SUPLEX!!

Rich Russillo: I suppose Chambers was looking for his patented Buckle Bomb, but Ripley turned it around and changed the complexion of this match in a heartbeat. Chambers continues to be fluctuated after that counter as Ripley comes off the ropes! TILT-A-WHIRL!! NO!!! CHAMBERS SHOVES HIM AWAY!! Ripley lands on his feet while Chambers launches towards him! RIPLEY DUCKS AND JUMPS ONTO THE TOP!! HE SOARS OVER HIS SHOULDERS!!

Rich Russillo: AND CHAMBERS TURNS IT INTO THE BOSTON CRAB!!! CHAMBERS APPLYING STRESS AND PAIN TO THE LOWER BACK OF RIPLEY AS WE COULD SEE A TAP-OUT HERE IN THE MAIN EVENT!

James Peters: WHAT THE HELL!?!?! THE REFEREE JUST COLLAPSED! The referee is not budging as Chambers was on his way from winning this match. Chambers now leans on the ropes as the doctor here on ringside checks on the referee.
Rich Russillo: In all my years as a commentator, I’ve referees being attacked and accidentally hit, but I have never witnessed them randomly falling asleep mid-count.

Dr. Bethany Blue could be put on the shelf because of this! Chambers may have thrown his opportunity out the window.
Rich Russillo: Either way, Terry Chambers just put the entire locker room on notice. When you mess with Terry Chambers, that is what is going to happen to you. What a statement. Chambers came here tonight to get a victory over Jack Ripley, but tonight, he shows how dangerous and brutal he can truly be.
James Peters: Dr. Blue might dead. She injected the referee with God knows what to make him fall asleep mid-match. This feud is getting out of control and we got more Wicked Games matches set. :whew:
Rich Russillo :whew: Goodnight everyone!
