(In loving memory of Brody Sparks.)
(A photo of Brody raising the Specialists Championship in the air flashes across the screen.)
(The sold-out crowd inside the Amalie Arena have a moment of silence for the legendary Elitist to honor her memory. A few minutes later they start chanting her name as Voltage fades into the intro.)
(EAW intro plays.)
(The show fades into the highlight video for last week’s Voltage.)
(The new EAW Universal Women’s Champion Raven Roberts came out to the ring to kick off the show to give a recap of everything that has happened in her career that led up to this point. She then talked about the satisfaction she got from beating Kassidy Heart which would’ve been the same if she beat Charlie Marr and put an end to his “paper reign” by cashing in on him. As Kassidy is facing The Visual Prophet at House of Glass, Raven stated that she was ready to defend the Universal Women’s Championship at Wicked Games against any comer which means anyone from Dynasty, Showdown, or Voltage. She ends by stating that this is just the beginning and she looks forward to see who ends up facing her at Wicked Games!)
(The highlight reel then transitions to the very highly anticipated match of Andrea Valentine and The Woogieman versus Shawn Sturgis and Veena Adams! This was a very intense match with a lot of back and forth, with Veena pulling out all the stops to win and beat Andrea, while Sturgis focused all his energy onto the Woogieman. It was shaping up to be a match of the night with Andrea and Veena taking the battle possibly outside the arena! However, it was none other than Zak Simmons who absolutely destroys the Woogieman and Shawn Sturgis to the boos of the crowd. He then goes onto state he’s tired of the back and forth both of them are having and he challenges Shawn to a Steel Cage Match!)
(It then transitions to Korey Gaines in his locker room explaining why he attacked Consuela Rose Ava after challenging her at Wicked Games. He states that Consuela is a great competitor and that her and himself could tear the house down when they face each other. But the reason he attacked Consuela was to show that he wants to be taken serious. He stated he wants to be in the big matches and get big opportunities going forward, and at Pain For Pride he could’ve won the 24/7 contract. He says that even though Consuela might’ve earned the contract, she hasn’t done anything with it on Voltage and he thinks that Consuela is just too scared to use it. He then goes onto question Consuela’s mental health after all the ups and downs she had in her career and how she might be afraid of failing when she one day cashes in. He says it makes him angry and if she’s not going to use the contract, he will. At Wicked Games he plans to raise the 24/7 contract high in the air and be taken seriously!)
(It’s not done though as the highlight reel transitions to Ms. Extreme and Consuela Rose Ava in their locker room watching everything that Korey has been saying. Consuela states that the 24/7 contract allows her to cash in on any champion she wants, mentioning how Raven could’ve cashed in on Charlie Marr but instead went to cash in on the former Universal Women’s Champion Kassidy Heart and take her title. Camille then states that Consuela doesn’t need the 24/7 contract to win a title as shown by winning the Specialist Championship three times. But Consuela isn’t focused on the Specialist Championship, she wants to use the contract to continue building her legacy and if Korey wants to take the contract away from her, he’s going to have to kill her for it!)
(The highlight reel then transitions to few of the matches tonight including the first shot at a #1 Contenders Match for the Interwire Championship at Wicked Games tonight, Jesse Barlow versus Damian Butler. Damian Butler tried to gain just a little bit of offense in this match, but the agility of Jesse Barlow was too much for him as he absolutely brutalized Damian Butler and pulled out the win earning himself a chance to face the winner of the other contendership match.)
(It then goes to Serena Riot versus Zak Simmons, which was nothing more than fuel added to the flame. It was an intense match between both competitors, neither of them giving up for a minute. But the match was ended abruptly as it was none other than Shawn Sturgis coming out and distracting Zak, which allowed Serena to get the win. Shawn then continues as he states that he accepts the challenge Zak put out earlier that night!)
(It then goes to EAW’s newest backstage correspondent Persephone Tsitsipas interviewing the Guardian Angel Sarah Price. Whilst the interview was very awkward and confusing for both of them, Sarah states that Shortfuse PAKA, who attacked her a couple weeks ago, is nothing more than a bully. She knows what she’s capable of and those who mistake her kindness for weakness end up losing to her. She is not impressed by Shortfuse PAKA, and he is nothing more than a brute. She calls what PAKA did at the end garbage, but that doesn’t change the fact that she has a shot at a #1 Contenders Match at Wicked Games if she beats Frankie Paradise tonight. She states that she believes she can beat Frankie and that she has nothing to lose and everything to gain, and she practically declares herself the next Interwire Champion!)
(It cuts to Frankie Paradise versus Sarah Price. Both Frankie and Sarah gave it their all, both of them avoiding one another’s big moves. But it ends after Sarah hits the Bittersweet Ending and she manages to pull out the win, earning herself a spot in the match. BUT it isn’t done there as PAKA comes out to yet again attack Sarah again throwing her into the Solar LED Paneling on the stage. PAKA is forced to be separated from Sarah as the medical team begin to tend to her.)
(It then goes to Ms. Extreme versus Korey Gaines with Charlie Marr and Consuela Rose Ava at the commentary desk. While things started to heat up in the ring, things also started to boil at the commentary desk between Charlie and Consuela. Nothing was taken away from the match as that was also an intense back and forth but it all culminated at the commentary desk where Charlie reached his limit and slapped the taste out of Consuela Rose Ava. Which then got Camille to come out to the commentary desk and have a war of words with Charlie. Which then allowed Korey to attack Camille from behind. But Consuela wasn’t having it as she attacked Korey helping her sister out. Then it was an all out war when Charlie joined in to help out Korey against the Avas. It then ended when security came out and was forced to separate all the Elitists in the brawl.)
(It then transitions to Terry Chambers being interviewed by Sofia Clarke earlier in the day. Terry goes all the way back to Pain For Pride 7 when he defended the Young Lions Cup. He then goes onto mention Drake King at Pain For Pride 12, and how he shouldn’t be overlooked and that Terry Chambers is legit. He then goes onto talk about his opponent at Wicked Games, Dr. Bethany Blue. He states that she’s clever, but he’s not going to fall into the trap she set at Wicked Games, because he knows Dr. Bethany Blue has something up her sleeve. He’s been fighting the odds his whole life and why should he stop now? He wants the Interwire Championship to make it a beacon of opportunity, which he couldn’t do in his first reign. And he’ll do anything in his power to get it back and prevent the doctor from tarnishing its legacy. He also goes onto talk about the opportunities as an Elitist at this time. There’s a lot of people he’d want to face, but all he wants to do is perform to the best of his abilities and raise his stock. He then says in a year from now he’ll probably continue to raise the bar and exceed expectations, he wants to shut the critics up and he hopes he takes the title back at Wicked Games. He also states he wants to put out the statement that it’s never too late to be great and that he wants his kids to remember that everything since he’s returned from the Round Table’s onslaught are things they can use in the real world. He says that Dr. Bethany Blue knows nothing about being a champion and that no matter what happens, Dr. Bethany Blue will NEVER be the same after Wicked Games!)
(It then goes onto a promo from Rex McAllister in the ring. Rex says he’s not happy where he is and that Battle Of Egypt was an eye opening performance for Fire and Ice, but for different reasons. He then goes onto talk about Pain For Pride 11 when he faced Diamond Cage to defend his EAW Championship. It was tough when he lost the title, but Rex is resilient. After beating Chris Elite for the World Heavyweight Championship he says that he works hard and constantly puts himself in the position to be the best. He proclaims that he will be EAW Champion by the end of the season, he’s much more determined to prove his worth in EAW, and he’s far from satisfied. He doesn’t like seeing Charlie Marr as EAW Champion and he wants to win his third World Championship. But before Rex can continue he’s interrupted by Jack Ripley, who wastes no time putting out a challenge for him at Wicked Games, Rex accepts, and makes the match official!)
(It then goes to the main event of the evening, Jack Ripley versus Terry Chambers! The match is very intense with both of them getting close to hitting their finishers multiple times in this match, but they just refuse to give in. The match spills out to the outside as Terry rams Jack through the barricade! None of them gave in as both of them fought on with pinfall after pinfall. No one knew where this match was going to go! But just as Terry was about to pull out the win, it was none other than Dr. Bethany Blue making the Ref fall asleep as she unloads on Chambers! But Terry wasn’t having any of it as it escalated to Terry hitting the T-5 on the announcer’s desk giving us an eye opening preview for their stretcher match at Wicked Games as the highlight reel ends.)
(The camera cuts to the inside of the arena where “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami is playing as the crowd erupts and gold and white pyro spew out of the stage in a beautiful pattern. The camera then pans over to Rich Russillo and James Peters who, in spirit of the weekend, are both wearing a light gray ‘Brody Sparks’ T-shirt with blue writing. They smile at the camera before speaking.)
Rich Russillo: WELCOME EVERYONE TO SUNDAY, NIGHT, VOLTAGE!!!
James Peters: We have some jam packed action for you on this beautiful Sunday night which we’ll give a brief rundown of now!
Rich Russillo: Let’s start with what should be a hard clashing main event between Ms. Extreme and Consuela Rose Ava facing the team of Korey Gaines and the EAW Champion Charlie Marr. All of them had a lot to say to one another and it all culminates tonight per say as a preview for Wicked Games!
James Peters: We also have a Champion versus Champion match tonight as the Interwire Champion, Dr. Bethany Blue, faces off against the Universal Women’s Champion, Raven Roberts! In what should be a very hard hitting match.
Rich Russillo: But did you hear the rumors, James? :lupe:
James Peters: :lupe: That the good doctor was injured??
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
James Peters: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: Welp. Let’s not forget this highly anticipated match between Shawn Sturgis and Zak Simmons. A week ago Zak interfered in Shawn’s match and challenged him to a Steel Cage Match! What makes this match even better is that it’s for the Big Boogie Bhampionship contendership!!!! :damn:!!!!
James Peters: We also have some matches that we can’t forget like, Andrea Valentine versus Jack Ripley! Terry Chambers versus PAKA! Serena Riot versus a debuting Ezio DeLuca!
Rich Russillo: And we cannot forget a match that is happening next! Rex McAllister versus Sarah Price which should be a very interesting match! Let’s cut to Bella Braxton, who’s in the middle of the ring now!
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring :wow:)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Alive” by P.O.D. plays to cheers as Rex McAllister makes his way out to the stage. He looks around with confidence but also with a smile as he makes his way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Sea Isle New Jersey, weighing in at 238 pounds… REX… MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: The last time we saw Rex McAllister in the ring was in Suez, Egypt for Battle of Egypt, where he fought to a losing effort against Chris Elite alongside Drake King.
James Peters: Well Rich despite that I’m sure Rex isn’t going to let that loss factor into the results of this match. He plans to bounce back and tonight on Voltage is the exact time to do that.
(Rex enters the ring and circles around before going to the top rope taking off his vest and jumping off to warm up in his corner as “Alive” fades out. “Land of the Innocent” by Feathers then plays to even more cheers as Sarah Price comes out to the stage. She’s excited as she pumps up the crowd and skips around the stage. She then starts going to the ring interacting with members of the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from London, United Kingdom, weighing in at 110 pounds… THE GUARDIAN ANGEL, SARAH…PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Sarah is as happy as someone can be after winning the Interwire Championship Number One Contendership match, but there are a lot of roadblocks. The problem of Shortfuse PAKA is one of them, and also getting past her opponent at Wicked Games to get a chance at the Interwire Championship, Jesse Barlow.
James Peters: But let’s also focus on the opportunity she gets facing Rex McAllister. If she won she says she’d consider this a turning point in her career. Wholeheartedly I’ll believe her, but we’ll just see who manages to pull out the win in this match.
(Sarah jumps into the ring and goes to the top rope and points around at the crowd before jumping down to her corner and getting ready as “Land of the Innocent” fades out at the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this match is underway. Both of them slowly locking up as Rex already is gaining the advantage slowly pushing Sarah into the ropes! But Sarah quickly slipping out before anything can happen and going behind Rex trying to maneuver a way to get the advantage in this match! Rex slamming Sarah to the ground and locking in a headlock! Sarah with flexibility slowly reaching her legs over to the head of Rex trying to lock in a headscissors! REX IS FORCED TO LET GO AS SARAH LOCKS IN A HEADSCISSORS! Sarah letting go and backing up trying to create some distance between the both of them. THEY LOCK UP!

James Peters: BUT REX SWINGING AT SARAH! SARAH DUCKING UNDER THOUGH AND NAILS A CHOP BLOCK ON REX FORCING HIM TO HOP ON ONE KNEE! Sarah grabbing Rex’s leg! DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP! Sarah quickly getting up to her feet and grabbing the leg of Rex again! BUT REX KICKING HER AWAY!

Sarah rolling around clutching her gut as Rex slowly gets up to her feet Sarah finally staggering up as well! GERMAN SUPLEX! Rex still holding on though as he pulls Sarah up and lifts her up!

Rich Russillo: Rex getting some big offense on Sarah as she is certainly feeling it. Sarah pulling herself out of the ring as Rex is getting up to his feet! Rex jumping onto the apron as he’s looking to jump! CROSSBODY OFF THE APRON! NO! SARAH SIDESTEPS HIM CAUSING REX TO CRASH INTO THE BARRICADE! Rex falls to a knee as he clutches his gut in pain! SARAH RUNNING! PLOT TWIST! SARAH NAILS A BICYCLE KNEE AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING! SHE ROLLS INTO THE RING! PIN ATTEMPT!!!
James Peters: REX KICKS OUT! WHAT IS IT GONNA TAKE TO TAKE DOWN REX MCALLISTER! Sarah grabs at her hair as that once calm complexion has fizzled out as this match goes on. Sarah leaning against the ropes as Rex is slowly starting to blink back to life and get to his feet! SARAH! BITTERSWEET ENDING- NO! REX MOVES OUT OF THE WAY OF THE SUPERKICK AND GRABS HER!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Alive” plays up as the Ref helps Rex McAllister up onto his feet and raises his hand in victory. Rex takes a deep breath before going to the top rope and celebrating his victory)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… REXXXXX MCCCALLLIISTTERRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: :wow: What a match. Both competitors gave it their all but in the end Rex did exactly what he sought out to do, and that’s to win. It was Rex’s plan, to rebound and get back up on his feet and it all started with Sarah Price.
James Peters: I wouldn’t take anything away from Sarah Price though. She showed that she can fight the big guys and put up an absolutely great fight. In my opinion this shows a lot about her and what she’s capable of and we might possibly be seeing the next Interwire Championship number one contender! Nevertheless congrats to Rex!
(The last shot is of the ref tending to Sarah Price as Rex leans against the ropes as the crowd cheers for him. He gives a big smile as he rolls out of the ring and Voltage cuts to an ad for Wicked Games.)
(A promotional ad for Wicked Games airs, highlighting Consuela Rose Ava and Korey Gaines! Consuela will defend the 24/7 contract against Gaines live from the Chase Center in San Francisco, California! Wicked Games comes to you live on free-per-view Saturday, November 16th, 2019!)
(Voltage returns and reopens backstage. The Universal Women’s Champion, Raven Roberts, is seen leaning against the closed door of her shared lockerroom with Rex McAllister. She’s dressed to compete with a Brody Sparks t-shirt over her gear, and when the two-time world champion enters the picture, Raven pushes herself off the door and opens her arms. Rex smiles as he steps into Raven’s embrace and the two share a tender, and extremely sweet hug before breaking apart.)
Raven Roberts: You looked great out there, baby.
Rex McAllister: Sarah Price is a tough girl. She’s got a hell of a future here in EAW if she keeps going and doesn’t let anything discourage her. Maybe one day we’ll see her challenging for the Universal Women’s Championship.
(A smirk crosses Raven’s face.)
Raven Roberts: You know me. I welcome everyone to step up to the plate and try.
Rex McAllister: Speaking of challengers, one of the Unified Tag Team Champions seems set to challenge you at Wicked Games.
Raven Roberts: I’ll be honest, I didn’t see that coming when I issued my open challenge, but I’ll take it. I owe Minerva one, and if it ends up being Constance, I’ll look forward to that match as well. I know both of them feel some kind of way about the way they’ve been treated, and honestly, babe, they have been treated like shit. Their championship reign hasn’t been anything to brag about and they’ve been predominantly an afterthought over there on Showdown. I fully expect both of them to come out swinging, and I’ll be prepared for the winner of their Beat the Clock challenge.
(Rex rakes a hand through his sweaty hair and gives Raven a thoughtful look.)
Rex McAllister: If you want my humble opinion, I think Constance Blevins has a bright future in front of her too. People shouldn’t sleep on her. :mjgrin:
Raven Roberts: Right.
Rex McAllister: I’m just saying that Constance is one to watch.
(Raven rolls her eyes.)
Raven Roberts: Okay fan boy. If it does end up being Constance, I’ll make sure to really beat her ass.
(Rex gives Raven a wry smile, which causes the championess to laugh and sneak a kiss from her fiance.)
(The moment is spoiled by the sound of the Interwire Champion, Dr. Bethany Blue, clearing her throat. Rex and Raven looked down at the good doctor, who is currently sitting in a wheelchair that Nurse Rannanah Goldstein has been pushing. Raven can’t help but roll her eyes to the back of her head.)
Raven Roberts: What the hell is this shit?
(Dr. Blue folds her hands in her lap and looks up at Raven.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well, due to the heinous actions of that brute Terry Chambers last week, I have been left with several lingering injuries, not to mention a pesky, yet unrelated case of walking pneumonia. In good conscious, I could not medically clear myself to compete in a singles match tonight with Wicked Games right around the corner. As you can see, the Interwire Championship isn’t even with me right now because I’m in such a state that carrying around that 10-pounds of gold is much too heavy. I’m sure you can FINALLY relate to having a championship to carry around.
(A serene smile crosses the face of Dr. Blue, while Raven decides to ignore the snarky little comment at the end of the good doctor’s statement.)
Raven Roberts: So what exactly are you trying to say to me right now, and why should I even listen?
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well Miss Roberts, I know you pride yourself on being the toughest woman in Elite Answers Wrestlers, and while that’s debatable, I am willing to give you a chance to showcase that tonight. While I can’t medically clear myself to compete in a singles match, I’m happy to compete alongside my perfect nurse and most trusted ally, Nurse Rannanah Goldstein, in a handicap match tonight. The two of us just not help but overhear you talking about the possibility of facing either member of, pardon my rude language, Heavenly Hell… *Dr. Blue turns her attention towards Rex and gives him a rather disapproving look* #TeamMinerva by the way :mjgrin:
Rex McAllister: :mjgrin:
Dr. Bethany Blue: But yes, we could not help but overhear the conversation and both of us just marveled over your willingness to take on any and all challenges. I’m sure this offer of a handicap match will be right up your alley, so I expect you will take it, and BOTH of us will see you out there later on.
(The fighter that is Raven Roberts doesn’t even hesitate. She actually laughs and places her hands on her hips.)
Raven Roberts: You both will definitely see me later on then because this entire company should know by now that I don’t fuck around. Lets get something clear. I don’t think you’re suffering from any lingering injuries at all, Bethany. I think you’re terrified of getting in that ring with me by yourself because you know that I’m hellbent on making you pay for stealing a victory from Rex and me a few weeks ago. You just don’t want me to hurt you two weeks before your championship defense, not that Terry really needs any held to beat you now. You’ve made his life a living hell and what he did to you last week is only a taste of what he has in store for you, I’m sure..
Dr. Bethany Blue: Mr. Chambers is irrelevant right now. Far be it for me to try and change your mind, however, my medical records are confidential and because I value the privacy of my patients, I will lead by example and keep my own medical mishaps private. I will do my best to compete to the best of my limited abilities later on, and I am sure Nurse Goldstein will fight valiantly as well.
Nurse Rannanah Goldstein: I will not let you down, Dr. Blue.
(Another smile crosses Bethany’s face.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: May the best woman or women win.
(Nurse Goldstein turns the wheelchair around and wheels Dr. Bethany Blue out of the picture. Raven shakes her head in annoyance, which prompts Rex to wrap an arm around her shoulders.)
Raven Roberts: That bitch is not injured. She’s up to something.
Rex McAllister: Do you want me to go out there with you Ray?
(Raven shoots Rex a ridiculous look and he raises his free hand up in surrender.)
Rex McAllister: I’ll never ask THAT question again.
Raven Roberts: You’re lucky you’re cute.
(Rex smirks and he and Raven head into the lockerroom, shutting their door behind them. Voltage fades into another part of the backstage area.)
(Voltage reopens to the guerilla area. Serena Riot is seen standing by, holding Revenge, and mentally preparing herself for her match. She’s facing the debuting Ezio DeLuca next, but upon seeing new Voltage reporter, Persephone Tsitsipas, her focused look turns to one of annoyance. Serena places Revenge on her shoulder and narrows her eyes at Persephone.)
Serena Riot: Can I help you?
Persephone Tsitsipas: Oh my god, ewwwww. Who did your makeup?
(Persephone shudders as she looks Serena up and down. Serena immediately takes Revenge and slams it down across the palm of her hand.)
Serena Riot: I said… can I help you?
(Persephone looks down at Serena’s bloody palm and curls her nose up in disgust.)
Persephone Tsitsipas: Well, I came to ask you about your match coming up against Ezio DeLuca, but honestly, I don’t even think I want to speak to you. You seem kind of weird, and honestly they don’t pay me enough to talk to people who look like they belong in nut house.
(Serena’s lips curl into a smirk and quick as a cat, she backs Persephone up against the wall and places Revenge at her throat. The Grecian beauty’s brown eyes widen in horror as Serena brings her face close to Persephone’s.)
Serena Riot: If I were you, I would watch who the fuck you’re disrespecting. I’m not Sarah Price, and you’re not going to speak to me any kind of way. Do I make myself clear, bitch?
(Persephone timidly nods and after pressing the bat into Persephone’s delicate throat just long enough to draw blood, Serena backs off. Persephone coughs and wipes the small trickle blood away, trying to collect her bearings after being scared shitless.)
Serena Riot: Now, you said you had some questions.
(Persephone glares at Serena, and clears her throat.)
Persephone Tsitsipas: Hmmph. So Miss Riot, in just a few minutes you will be heading to the ring to take on yet another debuting Voltage Elitist in Ezio DeLuca. Does it frustrate you to constantly find yourself in this position?
???: I would be frustrated if I were you.
(Serena’s head jerks to the left and much to her surprise, Veena Adams, walks up. Mr. DEDEDE’s niece walks into the frame dressed in a navy colored, fitted designer dress that clings to her curves and strappy, navy stilettos. Her blonde locks are swept back into a loose bun with a few select pieces hanging down to frame her small face.)
Veena Adams: You totally got screwed over in that stupid little Divide & Conquer match. The fact you didn’t even know you were competing for a championship until the last minute surely would have changed the way you viewed the match.
(It wasn’t a question and Serena doesn’t reply. Veena waves Persephone away, and the backstage reporter scurries off, just glad to be away from Serena Riot. Veena flashes Serena a knowing smile.)
Veena Adams: You haven’t exactly been featured since arriving to Voltage and honestly, I think that’s kind of a shame. I put partial blame on myself for this but as you know, I was pretty occupied trying to cleanse my brand of the filth that resides on it. That being said, I remember back to the first ever match you had on this show against Katheryn Wicked.
Serena Riot: Ahhh. Katie dearest. I miss her.
Veena Adams: You shouldn’t. She was always favored over you because she was a little more crazy, a little neurotic, extremely unstable, and this company saw her as someone they could easily exploit. She was easy to use as a puppet and I’ll be honest with you. I was happy to throw her into the ring and watch her do her thing. When she stabbed Blandrea Valenwhore during Bloodsport something inside of me erupted, and Serena, I’ll tell you what. That eruption was something far more beautiful than the orgasms I got while trekking the Amazon Rainforest and floating from native tribe to native tribe. The animals and plant life deserve to die, and honestly we would make more money by just burning that shit to the ground and relocating the people, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is… you’ve been wasted. I believe if it had been you in the ring against Blandrea, you would have taken that Specialists Championship from the smelly cunt that is disgracing it right now.
(Serena raises an eyebrow.)
Veena Adams: For weeks you have been placed in meaningless matches that have gotten you absolutely nowhere. Be honest with me Serena, are you actually happy facing these newcomers?
Serena Riot: I don’t mind breaking them in and letting them know exactly what to expect here on Voltage.
Veena Adams: Yeah that’s cute and all, but the novelty of that is going to wear off. Look, I haven’t hid my agenda for this season or my absolute disdain for the four whoreswomen. Those dumb fucking cunts have been a thorn in my side since June and I’m sick of looking at their slutty faces. There is no doubt in my mind about Bharlie ending Cumille at Wicked Games, and while I’m not completely sold on that pervert Gaines taking out Cuntsela, if he can somehow pull of a miracle and get the contract from her, we can use you to get it from Gaines and take the Universal Women’s Championship from Cuntven. But let me stop. I’m getting ahead of myself. Right now, my target is Blandrea, and I want her eradicated from this company’s history for good. Now I’m working on that, but I’m woman enough to admit that I might need a little help.
(A smirk crosses Veena’s face but before she can say anything else, a stagehand walks up to them.)
Stagehand: You’re up, Serena.
Veena Adams: Let’s talk after your match.
Serena Riot: I won’t lie. I’m intrigued.
Veena Adams: :mjgrin: Good luck out there.
(Serena and Veena exchange looks, and finally Serena heads off. A smirking Veena Adams laughs to herself and Voltage fades to ringside.)
(Bella Braxton beams.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…
(“Movin’ On Up” by Primal Scream hits and Ezio DeLuca dances out onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: From Providence, Rhode Island… weighing in at 244 lbs… EZIO DELUCA!
(Ezio DeLuca makes his way to the ring, sprinkling a few hip shakes and handshakes on his way to the ring. He climbs into the ring and strikes a quick pose.)
James Peters: Ezio DeLuca, ladies, and gentlemen! A fairly recent EAW hire and welcomed addition to the Voltage brand!
Rich Russillo: Eh.
James Peters: ‘Eh’? What do you mean, ‘eh?’
Rich Russillo: He’s alright, I guess. Weird haircut.
James Peters: Well, I kind of like it. I was thinking about telling my barber…
Rich Russillo: You mean Supercuts?
James Peters: THEY HAVE GOOD BARBERS, RICH!
(Ezio DeLuca waves to the crowd once more before leaning back into a turnbuckle to wait.)
(Smoke starts swirling on the stage floor.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Cleveland, Ohio… she is The Fallen Prophet… SERENA RIOT!
(“We Own The Night” by Hollywood Undead hits and out crawls Serena Riot. She crawls at a slow, methodically creepy pace down the ramp and towards the ring.)
James Peters: Oh god. Here she comes.
Rich Russillo: She scares the shit biscuits out of me!
James Peters: You and me both, partner.
Rich Russillo: Still hot though.
James Peters: You don’t want to stick your dick in crazy. Trust me. You are not Gavin Kirkland. First you shamelessly put over the doctor, and now you’re wildin’ on Riot. Smh.
(Serena Riot crawls under the ring and pops up on the other side. She rolls herself into the ring, hisses at Ezio DeLuca and then takes a turnbuckle by storm, slamming her fist into it three times.)
(DING DING DING!)
James Peters: And there’s the bell! Serena Riot starting things off here and running at Ezio DeLuca straight out of the gate! Ezio DeLuca spins out of the way and gives himself some more room to work. Ezio looks a little scared here because Serena’s headed for him again. She’s got her claws out! She looks possessed and Ezio wants no parts of her! Ezio with another close dodge! Serena claws right into the ropes this time! Ezio turns and raises a leg to catch Serena in the face but Serena Riot just stops! Dead in her tracks! Her face a hair’s length away from Ezio’s boot!
Rich Russillo: What impressive ring awareness from Serena Riot! She knows exactly what she’s doing here! She reaches up with a hand and slowly guides Ezio’s foot back down to the mat. She’s staring Ezio down now and Ezio starts backing up. Serena Riot with a clothesline! Ezio bends backward, dodging underneath! Serena Riot spins around! DROPKICK! Ezio DeLuca with a swift dropkick to send Serena down to the mat! Ezio backs off!
James Peters: Good idea because Serena Riot is back on her feet just as quickly as she was taken down. Serena Riot looking to retaliate here and she’s on Ezio like face paint on a psycho! Serena rushes Ezio down but Ezio gets his hands upon her shoulders! Ezio’s what, 6’3? 6’4? He’s got the wingspan to spare and proves it by holding Serena Riot at bay!
Rich Russillo: Ah yes! The old Stay Away From Me You Demonic Hosebeast trick! I know it well. I invoke this same maneuver every family reunion. I’ve got a lot of bum-rushing aunts… and even more creepy uncles.
James Peters: Big mood.
Rich Russillo: Ezio’s safe for the mome– wait! Serena Riot drops low and swipes at Ezio’s leg, taking him off his feet and down to the mat! Serena Riot doesn’t let up and stomps at the prone body of Ezio DeLuca! He covers up the best he can until Serena’s backed off by the official. Ezio DeLuca gets back to his feet and shakes out his arm. Guess they the brunt of those stomps.
James Peters: Serena Riot stays on him, catching Ezio DeLuca off guard with a Spinning Elbow! Ezio gets spun completely around… and Backhand Chop! Ezio DeLuca with the wherewithal to turn that crushing blow into a little offense of his own! And there’s another one of Ezio DeLuca’s chops! They are as loud they are effective! Serena’s chest jigg–
Rich Russillo: Hominahominahomina…
James Peters: — er, uh, has to be on fire and Ezio’s not stopping there! Ezio DeLuca shoving Serena Riot back and another Backhand Chop echoes through the Amalie Arena! Serena Riot gritting her teeth in pain as Ezio shoves her one more time! Serena’s back hits the turnbuckle and she winces again! Ezio holds her in place for a moment! Is that– is that a wiggle of the hip? A little show for the EAW fans here tonight and… ONE MORE BACKHAND to Serena Riot’s chest!
Rich Russillo: Serena Riot stumbling out of the corner now! Holding her chest the way I want to be held! Ezio pouring on the offense and grabbing her around her head, locking in a Side Headlock! He’s got it locked in! Serena struggles against him but Ezio holds firm! Ezio DeLuca trying to wear The Fallen Prophet down! Serena elbowing Ezio in the gut now. She’s trying to get him to break the hold and Ezio releases! Serena follows up quickly, turning towards Ezio as he comes in for another grab… HEADBUTT! Serena Riot slams her head into Ezio’s face and he’s knocked backward!
James Peters: Serena Riot levels the stunned Ezio DeLuca with a vicious clothesline! Quick cover!
James Peters: Kickout! Ezio DeLuca just powers out of that pin attempt by Serena Riot! Serena gets to her feet and pulls Ezio up with her. She’s screaming in his face like a madwoman! DeLuca trying to keep his cool and offers her an uneasy smile. SLAP! A hard slap right to the face of Ezio DeLuca! Ezio fires back with a stiff Forearm Smash! Ezio goes for a second one but Serena Riot grabs DeLuca by the arm and Irish Whips him hard into the ropes. Serena Riot follows quickly behind, Ezio turns around to bounce off those ropes and right into a Big Boot from Serena Riot! A Running Big Boot to the face of Ezio DeLuca! DeLuca goes heels over head!
Rich Russillo: Damn! His boyfriends aren’t gonna’ like that!
James Peters: Or girlfriends.
Rich Russillo: Fair. He does like everyone. And we here at EAW and Voltage refuse to make fun of a person because of their sexual orientation.
James Peters: Indeed. Representation matters.
(The More You Know! Jingle happens as both James Peters and Rich Russillo give a rehearsed Thumbs Up.)
Rich Russillo: Back to the action, Serena Riot has dropped DeLuca back down to the mat with a brutal jawbreaker. And now here’s Serena Riot with a cover on Ezio DeLuca! The official’s down and there’s the count! This might be it, folks! That was a vicious boot to the face followed up by a chin shattering jawbreaker! He might not even be conscious!
Rich Russillo: No! Ezio DeLuca gets the shoulder up! Only a two count! Two and a half, max!
James Peters: Serena Riot taking control of this match now. She pulls Ezio up to his feet… SIDEWALK SLAM! Jesus! The mat just shook with the impact of that brutal sidewalk slam from Serena Riot! Ezio DeLuca is holding his back in pain. Serena Riot is going all in it looks like now. She’s got Ezio up again, she’s behind him… wait, Dragon Sleeper! She’s got him in a Dragon Sleeper! Is he going to make him tap?! Wait– no! No, she converts it! BACKBREAKER! Holy shit! Right onto the back that she had just hurt! Jesus, Mary, and Jose! I think his back might actually be broken!
Rich Russillo: A brutal punishment for Ezio DeLuca it seems! Serena Riot pushing him to the mat like a sack of old potatoes! Ezio DeLuca’s not moving. Serena looking down at him… and then over to the corner. And there it is! The first grin we’ve seen from here all night! And it’s terrifying as shit!
James Peters: It really is. Stop that, Serena!
Rich Russillo: What the hell are you doing?! Don’t get her attention!
James Peters: … Good call. Nevermind! Do you!
Rich Russillo: Serena Riot up on the top rope now. She’s a woman possessed! Ezio DeLuca has no idea where he is or where she is! This is not going to end well for him! Serena Riot cackling madly now as she gets into position. She takes off like a bat out of hell, she’s up… DEMON DROP CONNECTS! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM HELL JUST SENT EZIO DELUCA TO HEAVEN!
James Peters: She got all of that one! There’s no way in hell that Ezio DeLuca is kicking out of this one. It’s a formality at this point.
Rich Russillo: Gotta’ agree with you there, JP. The official’s down as Serena just lays a single hand on DeLuca’s chest.
(DING DING DIING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… “The Fallen Prophet” SERENA RIOT!!
(Serena Riot stands and immediately heads for the ropes, rolling out of the ring and just stalking creepily up the ramp. She licks her lips with a sinister glint in her eye as she leaves. Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for life preservers featuring Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier. They are both seen treading water in the Caribbean Sea after being tossed off the Symphony of the Seas cruise ship.)
(Camera opens to Bella Braxton in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(“Breakin Outta Hell” by Airborne hits as Shortfuse PAKA steps out onto the ramp accompanied by Provencal and Hajime Kawano. PAKA snarls at the booing fans before making his way down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, making his way to the ring accompanied by Provencal and Hajime Kawano… from the Mie Province in Japan by way of The Arm Bar, France… weighing in at 225 pounds… SHORTFUSE PAKA!!!
James Peters: Powerful things come in all shapes and sizes and at 5’7”, PAKA is a walking testament to that! His chops alone are considered vicious enough to tear skin if he gets it just right!
Rich Rusillo: He’s am impressive competitor to say the least! But the same is easily true for his opponent tonight. PAKA and company better be ready for the fight that’s waiting for them in this matchup!
(PAKA climbs up into the ring as his music fades and is replaced by “Natural” by Imagine Dragons as Terry Chambers walks out to a big cheer from the crowd. Terry nods to acknowledge them but keeps his eyes glued on the ring as he begins to walk down.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… making his way to the ring from Detroit, Michigan… weighing in at 287 pounds… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!
Rich Rusillo: At an astounding 6’7”, Terry stands more than a full head over Shortfuse PAKA. And that size advantage will come massively into play tonight, in my honest opinion. Terry is looking to build momentum heading into Wicked Games as he hopes to reclaim the Interwire Championship that was taken from him.
James Peters: And lets not forget last week when Terry was mid match and the referee was put to sleep by Doctor Bethany Blue. Terry was less than pleased, putting his hands on the doctor for her actions.
(Terry rolls underneath the bottom rope and into the ring as he briefly holds up a fist in the air for the crowd before turning and focusing his eyes on PAKA. The referee then calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Rusillo: And here we go! These two men move to the center of the ring! But PAKA putting his hand up, he’s saying something to Terry! Test of strength! PAKA wants to go toe to toe with the much larger man! Terry grins as he steps in! Both men put their hands up! And here we go! They lock in the test of strength! Terry already pushing back and forcing PAKA to bend back— BUT WAIT! PAKA USING THAT LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY AND NOW PUSHING TERRY BACK! TERRY IS ON HIS HEELS AS PAKA IS FORCING HIM TO BEND BACKWARDS! WHAT A SHOW OF POWER FROM PAKA! BUT TERRY ISN’T DONE! TERRY REPOSITIONS HIS FEET AND NOW HES DRIVING BACK AT PAKA! TERRY FORCING HIS WAY BACK UP! BOTH MEN DISPLAYING IMMENSE STRENGTH!! THEY’RE CENTERED UP AGAIN! ALMOST AS IF NEITHER HAS MADE ANY PROGRESS! NEITHER MAN GIVING AN INCH!
James Peters: BUT PAKA STEPS HIS LEG IN! HE TRAPS TERRY’S LEG AND PUSHES BACK! HE SWEPT THE LEG ALMOST LIKE YOU WOULD FOR AN STO AND HE FORCES TERRY TO THE MAT! PAKA HAS CONTROL!
Rich Rusillo: PAKA now on top of the former Interwire Champion and he’s not wasting any movement! He slides right into a side headlock with his right arm, and now using his left to club at the head of Chambers! Driving knife hands into the temple of Terry! Those hits are dangerous! Terry trying to get an arm around to guard but nothing helping! PAKA continues to lay in strikes! And now he forces Terry’s shoulders down to the mat!
James Peters: But Terry pops the shoulder up just that quick! This strikes may be dizzying but not near enough to put Terry away! Chambers needs to get out of this predicament though! He’s looking for his escape as PAKA tries to keep that headlock— BUT TERRY MANAGES TO THROW A LEG UP AND NOW HAD A HEAD SCISSORS ON PAKA’S FACE!
Rush Rusillo: Terry putting that Thunder Thigh Thickness to use!
James Peters: :skip:
Rich Rusillo: Terry keeping that hold applied as he considers his next move— BUT TERRY RELEASES THE HOLD! HE LIFTS HIS LEG INTO THE AIR AND DROPS A MASSIVE AXE KICK INTO THE FACE OF PAKA!
James Peters: PAKA rolling away, clutching at his face! That could’ve broken his nose but I don’t see any blood! What happened? OH! Look at that mouse forming over the eye of PAKA! Terry with a massive impact on the face of his opponent! Provencal now checking on PAKA! But Terry shoots Provencal a glare that sends him scurrying away!! Terry now looking to take advantage! He grabs PAKA by the head and begins to pull him up! BUT PAKA SHOVING TERRY AWAY! Terry looking angry and now he charges the smaller man! Massive clothesline—
Rich Rusillo: BUT PAKA DUCKED IT! HE HITS A PALM HEEL STRIKE TO THE JAW OF TERRY AND CHAMBERS IS DOWN! KNOCKED SILLY! What a shot! You know some have mocked PAKA for not using closed fist strikes but the truth is that a punch loses part of its power at the wrist joint and that palm heel strike has nothing but solid bone and muscle behind it! It could’ve knocked Terry out cold! PAKA looking to take advantage of things here! He grabs terry by the shoulder! Heaving with all he has to pull the massive man to his feet! PAKA now has Terry up! He places Terry’s head between his legs! WRECKING BOMB! THE LIGER BOMB CONNECTS! WHAT KIND OF FREAKISH STRENGTH DID PAKA JUST HAVE TO PULL OUT TO HOIST A NEARLY THREE HUNDRED POUND MAN AND PLANT HIM LIKE THAT! HE HOLDS POSITION AND HAS THE PIN!
James Peters: BUT TERRY KICKS OUT STILL! PAKA beginning to look frustrated! All the power he just put into that move and it only got him a two count! Terry now rolling towards the corner to create some distance, but PAKA following in short order! PAKA grabbing Terry now— BUT TERRY PULLS HIM DOWN INTO A ROLL UP!
Rich Rusillo: Quick Kickout from PAKA! But he has to be mindful! Terry isn’t just a beast! He knows how to handle himself inside the ring at a technical level too! PAKA trying time scramble to his feet after being caught off guard but Terry beats him there! Terry takes out PAKA with a clothesline! But PAKA pops up! Terry bounces off the ropes and hits PAKA with another clothesline! PAKA quick up again! Terry with another— NO! PAKA ducked the clothesline and goes to hit the ropes himself! PAKA looking for a crossbody— BUT TERRY WITH A POUNCE THAT SENDS PAKA CRASHING INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! Terry beginning to fire up now as he’s finally stringing some offense together!
James Peters: PAKA still pulling himself up to his feet! The guy is one tough bastard! That’s for sure! Terry comes in and throws a right hook! BUT PAKA BLOCKS! PAKA returns with a massive chop! You could here it slap across Terry’s chest through the arena! Terry responds with a chop of his own! PAKA with a chop! Terry— TERRY WITH A STRAIGHT JAB TO THAT SWOLLEN EYE! PAKA is knocked backwards! BUT PAKA RETURNS WITH THAT KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT TO THE JAW! TERRY COULD HE OUT ON HIS FEET! IT FEELS LIKE EVERY STRIKE FROM THESE TWO COULD BE A KNOCKOUT! TERRY IS STAGGERED! PAKA RUSHING IN TO FINISH THE TASK!
Rich Rusillo: BUT TERRY WAS PLAYING POSSUM! PAKA RUNS IN AND TERRY SCOOPS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! LOOKING FOR THE T-5!!
James Peters: BUT PAKA THROWING ELBOWS INTO THE SIDE OF TERRY’S HEAD! PAKA SLIDING OFF THE BACK OF TERRY! CHAMBERS CHECKING HIS HEAD FOR BLOOD! HE TURNS AROUND! RIGHT INTO ANOTHER KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT FROM PAKA! TERRY DROPS BACKWARDS AND PAKA IS DOWN TO A KNEE HIMSELF! BOTH MEN COULD BE CONCUSSED! PAKA HAS A TRICKLE OF BLOOD COMING RIGHT DOWN THE CENTER OF HIS FOREHEAD AFTER THAT! HE TRIES TO SHAKE OFF THE HEADACHE AS HE FALLS OVER TERRY! PAKA GONNA PIN THE BIG MAN!
Rich Rusillo: BUT TERRY STILL FIGHTING BACK! PAKA looks distraught! That should’ve been the final blow! But Terry Chambers is never to be counted out! He’s fought back too many times! BUT PAKA NEEDS TO PAY ATTENTION AND SNAP OUT OF IT! TERRY GRABS HIM! LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS!
James Peters: But PAKA swinging his legs over and ties them up in the ropes before Terry could fully apply the Coquina Clutch! Terry now up to his feet! A visible bruise now forming along his jawline from these headbutts! He could even have a cracked tooth by this point! PAKA pulling himself up along the ropes! Both men have a murderous look in their eyes! AND BOTH TAKE OFF! THEY MEET IN THE CENTER AND THEY ARE THROWING! PAKA WITH A SLAP TO THE FACE OF TERRY! TERRY WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! ANOTHER EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BUT FROM PAKA THIS TIME! A KNEE TO THE GUT FROM TERRY! PAKA RESPONDS WITH A KNIFE HAND STRIKE TO THE THROAT! TERRY IS STAGGERED FROM THE THROAT SHOT— NO!! TERRY RETURNS WITH A STEP UP ENZIGURI!! PAKA IS DOWN! TERRY FOLLOWS UP WITH A SENTON AND HOOKS THE LEG WHEN HE LANDS! THIS COULD DO IT!
Rich Rusillo: BUT PAKA POWERS OUT! He’s not done yet and these two will continue to fight! Two mastodons just going at it in this match! PAKA May be smaller, but I think even Terry will admit at this point that the Frenchman packs one hell of a punch! Terry already looking to make his next move! Not letting the Kickout bother him! That’s the mindset of a champion! Keep the fight going and keep the pressure high!! Terry pulling PAKA to his feet and now driving him back into the corner! Terry looking to hack away with more chops— BUT PAKA WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! TERRY ISN’T BACKED OFF FOR LONG THOUGH! HE MOVES IN! BUT PAKA GRABS HIM BY THE WRIST AND TURNS! PAKA USING HIS LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY AND HIS HIPS! HE USES THE FORMER INTERWIRE CHAMPION’S MOMENTUM AGAINST HIM AND THROWS TERRY OVER HIMSELF AND CRASHING INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
James Peters: Terry trying to recover but I don’t know if he knows where he is! All these shots to the head he’s taken tonight and his head hit the turnbuckle after that throw from PAKA! PAKA stalking him from behind! Terry is up to his feet but doesn’t look like anyone’s home! He turns! PAKA SCOOPING HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! THIS IS IT! PAKA LINES UP! HE RUNS TO THE CORNER WITH ALL OF TERRY’S WEIGHT ON HIS SHOULDERS! COMPACT DRIVER!
Rich Rusillo: NO! TERRY SLIPPED OFF AT THE LAST SECOND! HE CAME TO JUST IN TIME! HE SHOVED PAKA AT FULL SPEED AND SENT THE FRENCHMAN CRASHING SHOULDER FIST THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES AND INTO THE STEEL POST! TERRY STUMBLED BACK OFF THE MOMENTUM AND CAUGHT HIMSELF ON THE ROPES! HES STILL GETTING HIS BEARINGS BUT HE SEES PAKA IN THE CORNER! TERRY SEES HIS CHANCE! HE SHOVES HIMSELF OFF THE ROPES AND GRABS PAKA OUT OF THE CORNER! HOISTS HIM UP! T-5!!!
James Peters: IT HITS! TERRY FALLS OVER PAKA! HE HOOKS THE LEGS IN DEEP!
( DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… here is your winner… TERRY CHAMBERS!
(“Natural” hits again as Terry rises to his feet and the referee raises his hand. PAKA is laying on the mat, only just beginning to move. Provencal and Hajime look distraught on the outside.)
James Peters: Terry Chambers with a great win here as we draw closer to Wicked Games! Terry is on a mission to reclaim his Interwire Championship and that mission leads right to to Bethany Blue, who better have been paying attention!
(PAKA uses the ropes to drag himself to his feet. He stands, clutching at his side as he steps up to face Terry. Both men are bruised and have welts forming on their bodies from the hard hitting match. PAKA keeps his eyes on Terry and simply cracks a grin of respect at the man who defeated him. Terry grins back, tapping the bruise on his jaw before nodding at PAKA and rolling out of the ring.)
Rich Rusillo: That was a fantastic showing from PAKA as well who has earned a show of respect from Terry! After an effort like that, what’s next for Shortfuse PAKA?
(We see PAKA in the ring one more time. The final shot closes on Terry walking victoriously up the ramp.)
(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 Red Wallz, and showcasing the current feud between Drake King and Cage. Red Wallz returns at House of Glass and Drake and Cage will finally settle the score between the two of them 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 to the sound of shouting. The camera quickly locates where the shouting is coming from and Shortfuse PAKA is seen screaming. He’s not screaming at anyone in particular. He’s just screaming, likely angry at he came up short in his match against Terry Chambers. Provençal and Hajime exchange looks with one another.)
Hajime Kawano: :lupe:
(PAKA slams his forearm into the wall and starts beating it up, not caring that’s also causing damage to himself in the process. He waged a pure war with Terry Chambers just a few minutes ago, but as always the Wrecking Ball seems to have a lot of aggression left over. He finally stops beating up the wall and wipes the blood from his forearm, then turns his attention to his brother-in-law and his manager.)
Shortfuse PAKA: I beat the hell out of Terry and then I beat the hell out of this wall. I finally feel good about today.
(Provençal and Hajime exchange :lupe: looks one more time, before Hajime finally speaks up.)
Hajime Kawano: It was a great match, PAKA-san. You should definitely be proud of yourself. Terry-san won’t be forgetting that fight with you anytime soon because that’s exactly what that was. A fight!
Shortfuse PAKA: Terry moves on to face Betty now and good for him. However, I need to put something to rest before I move on.
Provençal: What is that?
(Shortfuse PAKA glares at Provençal.)
Shortfuse PAKA: To do what you refuse to do a few weeks ago and give the Price girl a fight. I said this week I am Voltage’s Bar of Excellence. I give everyone the fight they need to make sure they belong here and can hack it here. The Price girl needs that from me, and then I will make sure that fuck Gaines finally gets what’s coming to him.
Hajime Kawano: I think Rex-san gave Sarah the fight she needed to prove she belonged here. She’s going to be a star one day.
(PAKA scoffs and spits on the ground.)
Shortfuse PAKA: BULL! The Price girl goes through me next.
???: If that’s what you want, Mr. Standard of Excellence, I’m happy to step into the ring with you.
(Sarah Price steps into frame and stands right in front of PAKA. She pays no attention to Provençal and Hajime, instead focusing her undivided attention on the man who has been targeting her in recent weeks.)
Sarah Price: If you want a match, then I’m happy to oblige. You’re a bully and you need to be stopped, and I’m not going to let you get away with trying to physically hurt me the last few weeks. I’m a superhero and you are the villain, and I’m going to vanquish you.
(Sarah’s voice is full of confidence, and even Provençal and Hajime have to give her credit for the way she is standing up to PAKA in the moment.)
Shortfuse PAKA: Be mindful of what you wish for, girl.
Sarah Price: I could say the same to you. You’re big. But I’m here chasing my dream. I’m not afraid of you. I pushed a two-time world champion in Rex earlier, so if you really want to fight me, we can make it happen.
(Shortfuse PAKA glares at her before giving a malicious grin.)
Shortfuse PAKA: Then let the chips fall where they may.
(The two lock eyes as Provençal and Hajime once again :lupe: at one another. After a moment of staring, Shortfuse PAKA motions for Provençal and Hajime to follow him and the three walk away with Sarah watching them.)
???: Such violence… to be so proud to promise to fight someone… isn’t the world in enough pain as it is?
(Hannah Marin, the woman who has been hanging around Jesse Barlow as of late, steps up to Sarah. Sarah frowns as Hannah shoots her a pitying look.)
Hannah Marin: I look at you and I see someone who is full of such potential. Despite your need to fight and prove some false narrative of being a superhero to the world, you have a good heart. You want to put an end to bullying and I really do believe that overall you want to make the world a better place. Your opponent at Wicked Games, Jesse Barlow, he believes in ridding the world of all the evil that resides in it. Sarah Price, I come before you tonight on behalf of Jesse. He wanted me to give you the opportunity to back out of the match at Wicked Games and join the two of us in our quest to start changing the world. Jesse has already brought to life the shoddy process that is adoption, and how anyone with a little bit of money can just magically become a parent overnight. While Consuela Rose Ava might have gotten her hand raised as opposed to Jesse at Bloodsport, he exposed her selfishness and her negligence as a parent. It’s a small start, but it was a wonderful start, and you would fit in with us and our morals perfectly.
Sarah Price: :usure:!!! No offense, but I don’t really think Jesse is a great person. His methods and his morals are questionable to say the least and I find it hard to believe he suddenly decided to become this entirely new person in the span of a few days like months ago. A leopard doesn’t lose its spots, or however that old expression goes. I believe Jesse is the same person he’s always been, and that is a heartless mobster with a black heart.
(Hannah shakes her head.)
Hannah Marin: You have Jesse all wrong, Sarah. Jesse never got the opportunity to choose his own path and once he found out that he was ripped from the arms of his birth parents and placed in the system, a system that failed him and so many other young children, his eyes were open. He saw how dreadful this world really is, and that’s why he bravely stands up for his beliefs and his convictions now, and preaches about change. Jesse and I want to stop corruption. We want to stop people like his adoptive family… people like my adoptive family. Both of us had our innocence ripped away at a young age, and as I look into your eyes right now my sweet Sarah, I see you still have some of that innocence in you. Let us help you, and cultivate that, and use the sunny aura that surrounds you to help make this world a better place. Do not make the mistake of stepping into the ring against Jesse at Wicked Games. Be our ally, Sarah. Don’t you dare become our enemy.
(Hannah’s voice has a warning tone to it and she fixates Sarah with a rather stern look. Sarah doesn’t really know what to say, which prompts Hannah to finally take her leave and walk off. Voltage fades into the ringside area.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Stitch” by Wage War plays to loud cheers as Jack Ripley walks to the stage. He has a smile on his face as he pumps up the crowd before making his way to the ring interacting with fans)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Las Vegas Nevada, weighing in at 202 pounds… THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER, JAAACCKKK… RIIIIPPPLLEEEEYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Jack Ripley is not pleased how things went last week when he returned to Voltage. He didnt win or lose but he it wasnt good enough for him when the Doctor interfered and caused a disqualification when he faced Terry Chambers.
James Peters: That didnt set well for him, now he’s ready to bounce back as he faces Andrea Valentine tonight!
(Jack Ripley enters the ring and goes up to the top rope looking out at the crowd and pointing to signs. He jumps off and begins to warm up as “Stitch” fades out. “Roll With Me” by Charli XCX plays to even more cheers as Andrea Valentine makes her way to the ring. She high fives fans as she holds her hands high in the air)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Orlando Florida, weighing in at 110 pounds… SHE IS THE SPECIALIST CHAMPION, ANDREEEAAAAA… VAAALLEENTTINNNEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Andrea is all smiles going into this match. Returning to her homestate Florida certainly gives her a happy feel tonight.
James Peters: She plans to keep that wave of momentum going after getting her hands on Veena Adams, now she plans to take down the former National Elite Champion in Jack Ripley, she knows she can accomplish that goal, now let’s see her put it into action.
(Andrea enters the ring and raises her Specialist Championship in the air. She gives a glance at Jack before looking out to the crowd as “Roll With Me” fades away and the bell rings)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: This match is underway as Jack Ripley and Andrea Valentine circle the ring. Both individuals hungry for a win here tonight as they engage in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Ripley quickly muscles Valentine into the corner and whips her into the opposite corner. Ripley chases her… AND EATS A MOUTHFUL OF ANDREA’S BACK ELBOW!
Andrea hops off the top… She jumps over Ripley and rolls into the other side of the ring.. Ripley runs past and jumps onto her! AND SENDS HER FLYING WITH A HURRICANRANA! Ripley now picks her up and throws her into ropes.. Ripley jumps down, Andrea hops over, Andrea comes off the ropes as Ripley jumps upwards…. AND ANDREA CATCHES HIM WITH A DROPKICK IN MID-AIR!!
James Peters: Ripley was looking for leapfrog, but Andrea with her impeccable ring awareness, caught him with a dropkick in mid flight. Ripley reels into the corner as Andrea charges into him and drives her knee into his chest in the corner. Ripley falters into the center of the ring as she comes off the ropes!! RIPLEY GRABS AND LIFTS HER OVER!! OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY!??!?!
Rich Russillo: NO!! ANDREA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET!! RIPLEY TURNS AROUND AS ANDREA JUMPS ONTO HIM!!! AND SENDS HIM RETREATING TO RINGSIDE WITH A BEAUTIFUL TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN!!! WOW!!!

Ripley down onto one knee as Andrea comes off the ropes! ANDREA JUMPS UP!! CROSSBODY!!! BUT RIPLEY HOLDS ONTO VALENTINE!! Ripley demonstrating his raw power as he lifts her over!! AND DRILLS HER WITH A BRIDGING FALLAWAY SLAM!! COVER!!
James Peters: Andrea powers out at two! Ripley is methodically pulling her up to his feet as he lifts her into a powerbomb hold…. What does Ripley have in mind? RIPLEY SHOVES HER UPWARDS!! BUT ANDREA GETS BOTH HER KNEES ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND DECKS HIM WITH A METEORA OUT OF NOWHERE!! What a meteora counter as Andrea climbs to the top turnbuckle.. Ripley is up to his feet while ANDREA SOARS!!! AND CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER METEORA!! SHE GOES FOR THE PIN!
Rich Russillo: Another kickout! Andrea beginning to show signs of frustration and that is something she needs to keep out of her mindset in this match.. Andrea forces him into the corner and grabs his arms.. Ripley turns it around and whips Andrea instead into the opposite corner. Ripley follows her into the corner as Andrea gets both her legs up in the air. Ripley grabs them and spins her into the ropes, jumps up and DRILLS HER WITH A ROPE HUNG BACKSTABBER!! Ripley quickly hooks her leg.
James Peters: Andrea gets her shoulder up! This match beginning to slow down as Ripley clubs the back of Valentine with hammerfists. Ripley now picks her up! BACK SUPLEX! Andrea flips clean onto her feet and jumps onto the back of Ripley’s head! ATOMIC BLONDE!!!! BUT RIPLEY HOLDS ON!! RIPLEY SAW IT COMING AS HE HANGS VALENTINE UPSIDE DOWN FROM HIS SHOULDERS!! Ripley carries her across the ring as VALENTINE LIFTS HERSELF UP AND ROLLS RIPLEY OVER!!
Rich Russillo: Ripley scrambles through the ropes and onto the apron as Andrea gets up to her feet! ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI FROM RIPLEY!! RIPLEY HOPS UP!!! AND ANDREA WITH AN ELBOW SMASH IN MID-AIR!! Ripley is dumbfounded on the apron as ANDREA KNEELS AND GRABS RIPLEY WITH HER LEGS!!! WHAT THE?!?!?
James Peters: VALENTINE’S MASSACRE!! WHAT AN INNOVATIVE WAY TO CONNECT WITH THE VALENTINE’S MASSACRE AS ANDREA DRILLED HIM WITH THE HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS DRIVER THROUGH THE ROPES! Valentine now going for the cover!
Rich Russillo: Ripley kicks out! Like we said before, what a counter as Valentine continues to prove why she is a championship holder here in Elite Answers Wrestling. Ripley leans on the ropes as Valentine approaches him. RIPLEY LIFTS VALENTINE AND SENDS HER ONTO THE APRON! RIPLEY WITH ANOTHER ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!!!!
James Peters: RIPLEY HOPS UP!!! AND VALENTINE CATCHES HIM WITH ANOTHER ELBOW SMASH!!! DEJA-VU FROM THE LAST SLINGSHOT DDT ATTEMPT AS RIPLEY TAKES A STEP BACK!!! VALENTINE STUNNED AS RIPLEY JUMPS UP AND GRABS VALENTINE’S HEAD!!! TORNADO DDT OFF THE APRON!! MY GOD!!
Rich Russillo: RIPLEY JUST DRILLED VALENTINE WITH A TORNADO DDT OFF THE APRON INTO THE RINGSIDE CONCRETE!!! Ripley slowly rolls her back into the ring. He climbs to the top turnbuckle as Andrea has yet to move!! HE SOARS!!!! DIVING MOONSAULT!!! COVER!!
James Peters: NO!!! ANDREA POPS HER SHOULDER UP!! A devastating ddt off the apron is not enough to put away our Specialist Champion. Ripley beginning to lose faith as he contemplates in the center of the ring.. Ripley makes his way towards Andrea and picks her up… OH NO?!?! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE VERTEBREAKER!!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT ANDREA ESCAPES THE HOLD AND PUSHES RIPLEY AWAY! Andrea runs past Ripley and handsprings into the ropes… Ripley slides under the bottom rope as no one is there for the handspring back elbow.
James Peters: Andrea turns around as Ripley launches himself through the ropes… SLINGSHOT SPEAR!!! BUT ANDREA CATCHES HIM WITH A GUILLOTINE CHOKE!!! Ripley is in trouble as he attempts to fight out of the hold. What a magnificent cover from Valentine as she applies more torque to the Guillotine Choke Hold. Ripley now fighting through the pain as she lifts Valentine off the ground! HE RELEASES THE HOLD AND LIFTS HER INTO A SUPLEX!!! BUT VALENTINE FLIPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND PUSHES HIM INTO THE ROPES!!
Rich Russillo: Ripley turns around as Andrea comes off the ropes! HE SPINS AROUND HIS BODY.. LOOKING FOR A TILT-A-WHI- BUT RIPLEY HOLDS ONTO ANDREA!!

James Peters: NO!!!! Andrea is still in this! Ripley not taking any time to rest as he immediately hoists Valentine onto his shoulders…. RIPLEY SIGNALLING FOR ANOTHER LAWNDART TOSS!?!?! Andrea hops off his shoulders and pushes him way…. RIPLEY TURNS AROUND AS ANDREA JUMPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS.. AND GRABS HIS HEAD!!! RUNNINNNG BLOCKKBUSTTER!!
Rich Russillo: Ripley turned inside out by that blockbuster as he rises up to his feet. Andrea isn’t pulling the brakes as she rebounds off the ropes! LOVEEE HAZZEE!!! BUT RIPLEY FLIPS HER OVER AND DRIVES VALENTINE INTO THE CANVAS WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Valentine winded by that suplex as she falters into the corner. RIPLEY QUICKLY CHARGES INTO HER!! RUNNING FOREARM SMASH!!! Ripley runs into the opposite corner… AND VALENTINE FOLLOWS AND BLASTS HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A BIG BOOT!! Ripley is having difficulty standing on his feet while Valentine ricochets off the ropes.. Ripley goes for a clothesline, but Valentine ducks and handsprings into the ropes….. SHE JUMPS BACK INTO RIPLEY!! AND CONNECTS WITH THE BACK ELBOW!! HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW AS VALENTINE QUICKLY ASCENDS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE… THIS COULD BE IT!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!!! Valentine gets her shoulder up at the very last second and Ripley is in disbelief. Andrea’s jaw might be broken from that devastating knee in mid-air.

James Peters: Andrea rolls over to the apron as Ripley grips the ropes…. HE HOPS OVER THE TOP ROPE… SLINGSHOT DDT!! NO!!! ANDREA STEPS AWAY AND FLOORS HIM WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! Both elitists exhausted on the apron as RIPLEY PICKS ANDREA UP!! ANDREA CAN’T GET OUT AS RIPLEY HAS HER IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! RIPLEY LIFTS HER UP!! ANDREA GRABS RIPLEY’S HEAD WITH A LEGS!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )
(Andrea rolls off Jack and goes to get to her feet. However, instead of her music hitting the PA system, “ME” by Taylor Swift featuring Brendon Urie begins to play. A dark look crosses Andrea’s face as Jack gets back to his. Jack rolls out of the ring and makes his exit as Veena Adams strolls onto the stage and she’s not alone. Joining her is a smirking Serena Riot and both women have microphones. The crowd has erupted in a chorus of jeers seeing the two standing side by side, and inside the ring, Andrea looks far from impressed.)
Veena Adams: Cut the music, cut the music.
(Veena’s theme stops playing and that allows the crowd to get even louder. Andrea looks around the arena, at the fans from her home state who have packed themselves inside the Amalie Arena, and she motions for them to let their voices be heard. They oblige the Specialists Champion and a little smirk crosses her face.)
Veena Adams (screaming into the microphone): I HAVE NO PROBLEM SPEAKING LOUDLY YOU MISERABLE PIECES OF SHIT! I HAVE A LITTLE MESSAGE FOR BLANDREA VALENWHORE AND I’M GOING TO MAKE SURE IT GETS HEARD!
Crowd: FUCK YOU VEENA! FUCK YOU VEENA! FUCK YOU VEENA! FUCK YOU VEENA! FUCK YOU VEENA! FUCK YOU VEENA!
Veena Adams (mocking): FuCk YoU vEeNa!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Veena Adams: Shut the fuck up. I can’t wait for this piece of shit state to get wiped out by the next major hurricane.
(Andrea has motioned for a microphone, and Bella hurries to hand it to her.)
Andrea Valentine: You clearly came out here to say something so why don’t you stop torturing the crowd with your screeching, say it, and get the fuck out.
(The crowd erupts for Andrea and Veena looks over at Serena. Both women roll their eyes before Veena replies.)
Veena Adams: Fine. I’m tired of standing here anyway and being crucified by these awful fans who don’t know what real talent actually is, and honestly, that’s what some of this boils down too. People have wild fucking views of what a real wrestler is because the fact so many people praise you and hold you to this high standard just continues to blow my mind. When Captain Charisma drafted your happy ass to Voltage, I told him he was making a huge mistake. There is literally nothing special about you, or anything that even remotely makes you stand out as some kind of champion, or whatever the hell this stupid Elitist of the Month award is that got started. You are a fake, a phony, and at Wicked Games, I’m going to end you.
Andrea Valentine (laughing): At Wicked Games, huh? You and me? You’ve got to be joking.
Veena Adams: I know that’s scary for you, Blandrea, because I’m a fucking bad ass inside the ring, but if you want something done, you just have to do it yourself. Last week, that stupid tag match was just the start of what I have planned for you.
Andrea Valentine: Scary for me? God, you are so deluded but what else is new? You’re an Adams, and that basically explains everything that’s wrong with you in a nutshell. You really want a fight? I’ll give you a fight because you’re the LAST person I would ever sweat. Stepping into a one on one match with me isn’t really going to end well for you, and I think deep down you know that. You talk a lot of shit, a big game in fact, but you have yet to put your money where your mouth is when it comes to wrestling. We can do the thing at Wicked Games, and I’ll make sure you learn that I’m the last person you need to worry about. The rest of the Beating Hearts and myself have thwarted your attempts to get rid of us at every turn. Nothing you have tried has been successful and you’re not going to win at Wicked Games.
Veena Adams: We’ll see about that.
Andrea Valentine: Believe me, I’ll do whatever it takes to knock you down and keep you down. I’m not about let you even come close to the Specialists Championship.
Veena Adams: Let me stop you right there, because I don’t want that piece of tin you tote around. But the fact you are so presumptuous to think that you will even be Specialists Champion at Wicked Games just goes to show how out of control your ego is. As you can see, I’m standing here with a woman of Voltage who actually has talent and knows her place. Serena Riot and I had a little conversation earlier after she beat that bozo Ezio DeLuca and we went to HRDO. HRDO agreed with me that Serena hasn’t been getting her just due around here so his solution to the problem was to make a Specialists Championship match for the November 10th episode of Voltage. You will be defending your championship against Serena Riot.
Serena Riot: And you’re going to defend it against me in a ladder match!
Andrea Valentine: You realize that’s how I won my second championship, right?
Serena Riot: That’s why I picked it. You deserve to lose it the same way you gained it.
Andrea Valentine: Bring it.
(Serena starts to make her way down to the ring, but Veena holds her back. The two women talk for a moment before Serena simply throws her middle finger up at Andrea. “ME” begins to play once again and Andrea can’t help but roll her eyes. She holds the Specialists Championship up in the air and the fans cheer for her, which sends Voltage into a promotional ad for Reasonable Doubt.)
(A promotional ad for Reasonable Doubt airs. The EAW Unified Tag Team Championships will be on the line as Heavenly Hell defend against Lucas Johnson and Lance Blackfyre. Reasonable Doubt comes to you live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, November 9th, 2019!)
(The show returns and cuts to the crowd. The Voltage crowd looks at the lowering cage in awe for this highly anticipated bout!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FOLLOWING IS A STEEL CAGE MATCH TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE BIG BOOGIE BHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(‘Head Strong’ by Trapt begins to play, as Shawn Stugis Jr makes his way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST….WRESTLING OUT OF FONTANAAAA, CALIFORNIAAAA…WEIGHING IN AT 204 POUNDS….SHAWWWWWWNNNNNN STURRRRGISSSS JRRRRR!!!
(Shawn Sturgis makes his way into the cage looking ready to fight.)
James Peters: Oh man, Rich! I am stoked for this match! For weeks this rivalry between between this man making his way to the ring right now and Zak Simmons has been brewing and it’s finally come to a head!
Rich Russillo: And it’s coming to head with Big Boogie Bhampionship implications on the line! The winner of this match will The Woogieman for the Bhampionship on the November 10th episode of Voltage.
James Peters: Shawn Sturgis seems focused and determined tonight, and I know he is going to do whatever it takes to win the match.
(Sturgis gets sets and his music fades out. ‘Catch Hell’ echoes throughout the arena as “The Southern Elite” makes his way onto the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, WEIGHING IN AT 245lbs…FROM LEXINGTON, KENTUCKYYY…THE SOUTHERNNNN ELITEEEE, ZAK SIMMMOONNSSS!!!!
(Zak smirks as he makes his way to the ring.)
Rich Russillo: Now here comes a man who just wants to beat people and win titles. Zak Simmons hasn’t gotten off to the best start here, but he never takes it easy on his opponents. Locking himself a steel cage with a man he hates?! James, this could get brutal.
James Peters: Shawn is really going to have to be on his A-game tonight because Simmons already looks ready to destroy everything.
Rich Russillo: I’m excited for this match! It could steal the show. :wow:
(Zak gets into the ring and the cage is locked. The referee inside calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: HERE WEEEE GO! STURGIS CHARGES ZAK SIMMONS! HE’S NOT GONNA WAIT, THIS RIVALRY HAS BEEN BOILING OVER FOR WEEKS, THIS IS GOING TO BE A WAR!! THEY’RE ALREADY IN A BRAWL…SIMMONS USING THAT WEIGHT ADVANTAGE RIGHT FROM THE GET GO, BODYING SIMMONS BACK AGAINST THE ROPES…HE LOOKS TO BE ATTEMPTING A SUPLEX! SIMMONS ESCAPES AND RETREATS MONETARILY ESCAPING THE FRENZY!
Rich Russillo: Shawn needs to be careful, especially considering he’s against a much larger opponent INSIDE a steel cage.
James Peters: We both know he doesn’t care if he’s the smaller competitor, he’s tired of Simmons constant bullshit, this isn’t about honor, respect, or anything of the sort. This is about revenge.
Rich Russillo: We’re seeing that right now, vicious slaps to the chest of Simmons from Shawn Sturgis, the roles have been reversed, Sturgis showing us he’s going to be the aggressor in this bout! STURGIS NOW GOING FOR AN IRISH WHIP …SIMMONS REVERSES IT AND LAUNCHES SHAWN STURGIS INTO THE CAGE!! WHAT A ROUGH LANDING, HIS BODY TRAPPED BETWEEN THE ROPES AND SCRAPING AGAINST THE CAGE! THIS RIVALRY WAS ALREADY BRUTAL ENOUGH, THROW A CAGE IN IT AND YOU’ll GET SOMETHING NEVER SEEN BEFORE!!
James Peters: SIMMONS GOING BACK TO THE WHALE AGAIN, BRINGS STURGIS UP TO HIS FEET AND LOCKS IN THE… ABDOMINAL STRETCH, THAT’S ONE OF SHAWN’S SIGNATURE MOVES, THE DISRESPECT IS UNREAL! THAT BRUTAL SUBMISSION BASED AROUND TARGETING THE MIDSECTION OF YOUR OPPONENT! Simmons doesn’t want to end this early, he wants to take advantage of such an unforgiving structure. He’s going to disect Shawn Sturgis, torture him, then finally finish him off for good, once and for all.
Rich Russillo: Simmons is giving Sturgis absolutely no leeway, no chance to gather himself. Shawn’s attempting to fight back, to fight his way out of the abdominal stretch…HE’S FIGHTING, HE’S FIGHTING AS HARD AS HE POSSIBLY CAN, I DON’T KNOW HOW HE’S DOING THIS BUT HE IS!! STURGIS IS ALMOST OUT …HE BREAKS OUT OF THE STRETCH AND DELIVERS A MASSIVE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX TO ZAK SIMMONS!! THAT TOOK ALL OF THE STRENGTH HE COULD SUMMON!! BUT STURGIS KNOWS THIS IS HIS CHANCE, HIS CHANCE TO CAUSE ZAK SIMMONS AS MUCH PAIN AS HE POSSIBLY CAN FEEL! SIMMONS SLOWLY GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND SHAWN STURGIS…WHAT IS HE GOING FOR HERE?!?! SHAWN STRUGIS WITH NASTY KNEES TO THE MIDSECTION, THEN HE SETS UP ZAK SIMMONS…..A BELLY TO BELLY AGAINST THE CAGE!!! HOLY SHIT!!!
James Peters: HE JUST LAUNCHED ZAK SIMMONS AGAINST THE CAGE, BACK FIRST! WHAT A MOVE FROM STURGIS, THAT LOOKS TO HAVE CHANGED THE ENTIRE COMPLEXION OF THIS MATCH! SHAWN ISN’T GOING TO RELISH IN THIS GLORY, HE’S GOING TO KEEP UP THE ASSAULT, LIKE I SAID EARLIER, RICH, THIS ISN’T ABOUT WRESTLING, ENTERTAINMENT, OR FAN ENJOYMENT, THIS IS ABOUT THE PURE DISDAIN THESE TWO FEEL FOR EACH OTHER! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE NIGHT MARE, THAT LETHAL ROPE HUNG DDT! HE’S GOT HIM ON THE ROPES….NIGHT MARE!!! HE DROVE HIS HEAD INTO THE CANVAS, A DEVASTATING MOVE!! SHAWN STURGIS IS HEADING IN FOR THE PIN!!!….
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT!!!! SIMMONS IS ALIVE, HE’S STILL IN THIS, THIS WAR IS NOT OVER YET!! I THOUGHT FOR SURE THAT WAS IT, AFTER THAT BRUTAL SUPLEX INTO THE CAGE AND THEN THE NIGHT MARE TO TOP IT OFF, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW ZAK SIMMONS ESCAPED THAT ONE!!
(A look of disbelief runs across the faces of the sold out Voltage arena.)
Rich Russillo: IT APPEARS AS IF THE CROWD CAN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER, HOLY SHIT!!
James Peters: Zak Simmons gaining some life back, trying to fight his way back to his feet…He appears to only have a shred of life left in hi-WAIT A ROLLUP, HE ROLLED HIM UP!!!…
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT!!! SHAWN KICKED OUT, ZAK WAS PLAYING POSSUM, NOW HE’S BACK TO HIS FEET, HE LAUNCHES SHAWN AGAINST THE ROPES…MASSIVE SPINEBUSTER TO SHAWN STURGIS, A RING RATTLING SPINEBUSTER FROM SIMMONS, HE IS PLAYING ABSOLUTELY NO GAMES TONIGHT!! HE GOES BACK TO THE BODY OF SHAWN AGAIN, HE LIFTS HIM UP…OH NO!!! OH HELLLL NO!!!…A BACKBREAKER, DESTROYING THE SPINE AGAIN…AND ANOTHER BACKBREAKER …ZAK DON’T DO IT…ANOTHER HELLACIOUS BACKBREAKER TO SHAWN STRUGIS, REARRANGING THE INSIDES AND SPINE OF STURGIS!!! THOSE BACKBREAKERS HAD MALICE IN THEM, AND HE ISN’T EVEN DONE!!??!
James Peters: I DON’T THINK HE IS RICH, HE LOOKS LIKE HE COULD BE SETTING UP FOR THE BRAINBUSTER, WHICH IS TYPICALLY A PRELUDE FOR THE ELITE ENDING. HE’S DONE WITH THE TORTURE, THE PAIN, HE WANTS TO END IT, HE NAILS THE BRAIN BUSTER!!! THAT ONE WAS DELIVERED WITH HORRIFIC INTENT!! I DON’T THINK HE WANTS TO INJURE HIM, I THINK HE WANTS TO END HIS CAREER!!!
Rich Russillo: HERE WE GO, THE ELITE ENDING IS GOING TO END THIS BOUT …HE’S GOING TO END THIS RIGHT HERE …ZAK SIMMONS WITH THE ELI-COUNTER, SIMMONS SIDESTEPS AND COMES OFF THE ROPES WITH A MASSIVE CLOTHESLINE!!! HE JUST DECAPITATED ZAK SIMMONS, HOLY SHIT!!! HE’S FEELING IT NOW, SIMMONS IS COMING BACK, HE’S GOING FOR A SPRINNNNGGBOOAARRDD MOOON-OOOOHHHH, THE MACHINE, ZAK SIMMONS ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY, HE AVOIDED IT!! BOTH MEN DOWN, THIS WAR HAS BEEN ATTROCIOUS, I DON’T SEE HOW EITHER MAN COULD FINISH, LET ALONE WIN THIS MATCH!
James Peters: Zak Simmons showing some life, but he looks doesn’t want any part of Shawn Sturgis, He wants this match to be over and done with. He’s glancing carefully…at the top of the cage…then his eyes slowly peel back down to the awakening body of Shawn Sturgis…Simmons is signaling for possibly an attempt to climb out of the cage.
(Crowd chants repeatedly at Zak Simmons “PUSSY, PUSSY, PUSSY!”, displaying clearly their hate for his tactics, he seemingly remains unfazed by their reactions. He even goes so far as to smile at them blissfully, mocking and demeaning their opinion.)
Rich Russillo: SIMMONS IS NOW ATTEMPTING TO SCALE THE CAGE, HE’S LOOKING FOR THE WIN!! HE’S TRYING AS HARD AS HE CAN TO CLIMB TO THE TOP, EACH BREATH GETS HEAVIER AND HEAVIER! SHAWN STURGIS IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF LIFE, HE IS ATTEMPTING TO CATCH SIMMONS BEFORE HE ESCAPES AND GAINS THE WIN!! HE’S GOT THE LEG, DESPERATELY TRYING TO TUG AND YANK ZAK SIMMONS BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS. SIMMONS IS FIGHTING BACK, HE’S ALMOST OUT OF THE CAGE BUT SHAWN WONT LET HIM ESCAPE, HE WON’T LOSE THIS WAR AFTER FIGHTING THIS HARD, AFTER GRINDING FOR THIS LONG!!
James Peters: NOW THEY’RE BOTHY STANDING ON THE TOP ROPE, THIS IS A DANGEROUS POSITION FOR BOTH MEN, ONE WRONG MOVE AND THIS COULD COST THEM THE MATCH! PUNCHES AND FOREARMS, BOTH MEN TRYING TO DESPERATELY TO BALANCE ON THE ROPE AND TAKE THE OTHER DOWN…STURGIS JUMPS ON THE BACK OF SIMMONS, HE COULD BE LOOKING FOR A…WAIT HE’S LOOKING FOR A CHOKE, HE’S LOOKING TO SUBMIT, OR EVEN MAKE SIMMONS PASS OUT! IF SIMMONS CAN’T FIND A WAY TO FIGHT OUT OF THIS IT’LL SURELY BE THE END, BUT IF HE PASSES OUT ON THAT TOP ROPE..WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO SHAWN STURGIS, THIS IS SUCH A RISKY SITUATION!
Rich Russillo: ZAK’S FIGHTING, HE KNOWS WHAT THIS LOSS WOULD DO TO HIM, HE’S PREPARED TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN THIS! SIMMONS NOW RAMMING THE FACE OF SHAWN INTO THE CAGE, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, DOING ANYTHING HE CAN TO GET STURGES AWAY FROM HIM!! SHAWN IS BLEEDING BAD NOW, BLOOD IS POURING FROM ABOVE HIS LEFT EYEBROW, AS IT FALLS OVER THE CANVAS STAINING IT RED! SHAWN STILL ISNT LETTING GO, SIMMONS IS FADING, EVER SO SLOWLY SIMMONS LIGHTS ARE GOING OUT, HIS BODY GOING LIMP, HIS BRAIN SHUTTING DOWN!! OH NO, SIMMONS HANDS HAVE RELEASED FROM THE CLUTCH OF THE CAGE, HIS BODY LOOKS ABSOLUTELY LIFELESS, HE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S GOT ANYTHING LEFT!! HIS FACE HAS GONE FROM RED, TO PURPLE, TO JUST WHITE!! SIMMONS IS OUT, HE’S OUT, HE IS OUT ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT STURGIS IS STILL ATTACHED…OH NO, HE IS STILL HANGING ON, HE’S TRYING TO KILL SIMMONS NOW! COME ON SHAWN, LET GO DAMNIT, DON’T DO THIS…ZAK’S BODY HAS GONE LIP AND HE’S…NO, NO!!! ZAK AND SHAWN FALL ALLLLL THE WAY TO THE CANVAS!!! HOLY SHIT!!!
James Peters:HOLY SHIT RICH, HOLY F U C K I N SHIT RICH!!! THESE TWO MEN JUST CRASHED IN A BLOODY HEAP TO THE CANVAS!! THE RING IS STAINED FROM THE SWEAT, BLOOD AND TEARS THESE MEN HAVE PUT INTO THIS MATCH, YOU MAY NOT AGREE WITH THEIR STRATEGIES, YOU MAY NOT LIKE OR AGREE WITH HOW THEY CONDUCT THEMSELVES OR THE MANNERISM WHICH THEY CARRY THEMSELVES WITH, BUT YOU MUST RESPECT AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE DEDICATION THESE TWO MEN HAVE FOR PUTTING ON SOME OF THE MOST PHENOMENAL MATCHES WE’VE SEEN ON VOLTAGE, EVERY SINGLE WEEK!!
Rich Russillo: I agree with you completely James, one of the few times I do, but I fully and completely agree!
James Peters: BUT STILL THERE MUST BE A WINNER, AND SHAWN STURGIS IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF LIFE, HE KNOWS HE’S PUT ZAK SIMMONS TO SLEEP, THIS IS HIS CHANCE TO ESCAPE THE CAGE!!! HE’S PRYING HIMSELF UP, HE’S TRYING SO DESPERATELY TO ASCEND THE CAGE AND ESCAPE, EVERY STEP SEEMS TO GET MORE DIFFICULT FOR SHAWN STURGIS!!! HE’S AT THE TOP, HE JUST NEEDS TO – WAIT WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?
( “If Ya Smell “ beings to play, the Voltage arena stands still with shock!!)
Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL, NO WAY, NO POSSIBLE WAY, CAN THE GOAT HIMSELF BE HERE?!?!?!
(The Woogieman enters the arena, the Voltage arena explodes with glee, the men are crying, the women are crying, the babies are crying, everyones crying!!!.)
James Peters: ITS WOOGIE, ITS WOOGIE, MY GOD WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE, THIS IS NOT HIS BUSINESS, THIS RIVALRY WAS SUPPOSED TO COME TO A HEAD HERE TONIGHT, DON’T TELL ME IT’S GOING TO END IN CONTROVERSY!!!
(Woogie slowly struts down to the ring, and storms into the cage, ripping the door open and attacking both men!)
James Peters: WHAT THE HELL WOOGIE, WHY?!?!!? WOOGIE UNLOADING ON BOTH MEN WITH KICKS AND PUNCHES, BRUTALIZING BOTH COMPETITORS, WOOGIE WHY!?!?!
Rich Russillo: WOOGIE TAKES OUT BOTH SHAWN STURGIS AND ZAK SIMMONS! WOOGIE RUNS THE ROPES AND LANDS THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW ON SIMMONS! WOOGIE IS BACK UP AND HE RUSHES THE ROPES AGAIN! PEOPLE’S ELBOW TO STURGIS!!! THIS CROWD IS STOMPING AND CHEERING AND EATING THIS UP! WOOGIE IS BACK UP AND HE’S PULLING A MICROPHONE OUT OF HIS POCKET?!?!
(The Woogieman raises the microphone to his lips and the crowd immediately quiets down. They are holding their breath, waiting for what the living legend and GOAT has to say.)
The Woogieman: I’m here in Tampa, Florida, and have just been waiting for this moment. These two have had a beautiful match but I have decided to take matters into my own hands. Zak and Shawn, you want the Big Boogie Bhampionship, you come and get it! I hereby declare this match A NO CONTEST! I will defend this bhampionship against both of you!
(‘If Ya Smell’ hits the PA system and the crowd nearly faints.)
James Peters: HE IS GOING TO DEFEND AGAINST BOTH OF THEM?! RICH, I CAN NOT! OH MY GOD!
Rich Russillo: DEAR GAWD! I AM SHOOK! I KNOW I SAY THIS ABOUT EVERY WOOGIE MATCH BUT THIS REALLY WILL BE THE MATCH OF THE YEAR!
James Peters: Right?! Oh my gawd, we have to take a break. This is to much.
(Woogie has already started making his way back up the ramp, and the announcement of a triple threat match coming up for the Big Boogie Bhampionship is almost too much for people to handle. Voltage thankfully fades into a commercial break to give everyone a chance to recover.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial for the ASPCA featuring Jesse Barlow. He says you should adopt these mistreated puppies, then blames you for not planting more trees in the rainforests.)
(The show returns and Bella Braxton is ready for the next match!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…. THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A HANDICAP MATCH AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Mark My Words” by Dollskin begins to blast across the PA system. The crowd erupts as Raven Roberts makes her way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…. FROM LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY… SHE IS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… RAVEN ROBERTS!!!
James Peters: This is Raven Roberts first match as a world champion and I’m excited for her. She’s waited a long time for this moment and to take this walk to the ring, and even though tonight isn’t going to be the match she prepared for, I know that Raven Roberts will have an answer to whatever gets thrown at her.
Rich Russillo: Earlier tonight, Dr. Blue proposed a handicap match featuring herself and Nurse Goldstein against Raven thanks to the life threatening injuries she suffered last week thanks to Terry Chambers’ unprovoked attack.
James Peters: :wtf: Unprovoked?! Dr. Blue has made the man’s life a living hell for months. She more than deserved what happened to her last week.
Rich Russillo: Well, we can agree to disagree on that and from what we understand, medical clearance was not given to Dr. Blue to compete. Some of her injuries have healed, but new ones have popped up and she is suffering from pneumonia here tonight. The fact she’s even willing to step into the ring with someone as skilled and as deadly as Raven just goes to show you how dedicated the good doctor is to both of her professions.
(Not that the viewers can see him, but James has been rolling his eyes this entire time :wow:)
(Raven slides into the ring and her music fades out. It is replaced by ‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi. The cheers Raven received immediately turn to jeers as Nurse Rannanah Goldstein steps out, helping Dr. Bethany Blue walk with a crutch.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENTS… INTRODUCING FIRST… NURSE RANNANAH GOLDSTEIN! AND HER PARTNER… FROM MIAMI, FLORIDA… SHE IS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION…. DR. BETHANY BLUE!!!!
Rich Russillo: This is so courageous and I really don’t think I can stress that enough. Dr. Bethany Blue is walking out here, prepared to go to war, when clearly she’s in no condition to compete.
James Peters: I still don’t buy this bullshit and if you want my honest opinion, Dr. Blue is perfectly fine. She just doesn’t want to pay the price for stealing a win from Raven and Rex a few weeks ago, and she wants an excuse to not face Terry in a couple of weeks at Wicked Games. If Raven manages to get her hands on Dr. Blue in this match, I bet the Doctor will find the same ‘miracle’ Veena Adams found a few months ago when she was suddenly able to walk and end up being just fine.
Rich Russillo: :lupe: I hope Raven doesn’t make the situation worse for the good doctor.
(Nurse Goldstein and Dr. Bethany Blue make a big scene about Dr. Blue gingerly making her way up the ring steps and handing off the crutch. Nurse Goldstein continues to check with Dr. Blue, making sure she is okay and that she’s sure she wants to compete in this match. Dr. Blue nods her head, looking both brave and weary, and Raven can’t help but be completely irritated by this whole situation. After a few more minutes of theatrics, the referee finally calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Rich Russillo: No surprise here as it’s Nurse Rannanah Goldstein starting this match off against Raven. Now, we don’t really know much about this woman, and quite frankly, I don’t want to know anything else about her. She scares me, James, but luckily, Raven doesn’t seem intimidated whatsoever by this situation.
James Peters: I don’t recall Raven Roberts ever being intimidated by a situation before. She’s fearless, and despite the hulking size of the Amazon that is Nurse Goldstein, she’s not the biggest person Raven has ever been inside the ring with.
(Raven steps up to Nurse Goldstein and invites the Amazon to hit her. Nurse Goldstein seems a little surprised that Raven would be so bold and she looks back at Dr. Blue for approval. Dr. Blue shrugs her shoulders, as if to say give Raven what she wants, and the Nurse turns back to Raven. She adjusts her little cap and raises her hand, slapping the Universal Women’s Champion right across the face!)
Rich Russillo: Raven doesn’t go down but look at that handprint that’s on her cheek!
James Peters: RAVEN WITH A LOU THESZ PRESS TO NURSE GOLDSTEIN AND SHE’S UNLOADING ON HER! NURSE GOLDSTEIN IS TRYING TO FIGHT OFF RAVEN BUT THE CHAMP IS HELLBENT ON SENDING A MESSAGE HERE TONIGHT! RAVEN WITH FOREARMS AND THEY ARE CONNECTING RIGHT TO NURSE GOLDSTEIN’S FACE! THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION IS SHOWING ABSOLUTELY NO MERCY IN THE OPENING STAGES OF THIS BOUT AND NURSE GOLDSTEIN IS DESPERATE TO FEND OFF RAVEN RIGHT NOW! RAVEN GRABS THE NURSE BY THE HAIR AND SHE SNATCHES THAT NURSE’S CAP RIGHT OFF! SHE SHOVES IT IN THE MOUTH OF NURSE RANNANAH GOLDSTEIN AND WHIPS HER INTO THE ROPES! TALON KICK CONNECTS ON THE REBOUND! RAVEN DROPS DOWN AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: DR. BETHANY BLUE BREAKS UP THE COVER!
James Peters: Of course she does… because she’s not really injured.
(On cue, the good doctor immediately grabs her back and drops to the mat. She rolls around in pain, almost as if she had just gotten shot. The referee seems to be extremely concerned and he immediately rushes to Dr. Bethany’s side to check on her. Despite the shot to the back of the head Raven had just taken, the Bird of Prey is back up and she sees the fuckery going on. She marches over to Dr. Blue and snatches her up by her perfectly curled sandy brown locks.)
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off Mic): STOP TURKEY BUZZARD ROBERTS! I AM INJURED!! THAT WAS JUST MY INSTINCTS TAKING OVER!!!
Raven Roberts (Off Mic): Go fuck yourself.
Rich Russillo: RAVEN TOSSES DR. BLUE IN THE CORNER AND SHE NAILS HER IN THE GUT WITH A KNEE STRIKE! RAVEN WITH ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE! AND ANOTHER! DR. BLUE HAS CRUMBLED TO THE MAT NOW AND IS COUGHING! THAT’S NOT GOING TO HELP THE PNEUMONIA SHE CAME DOWN WITH RIGHT BEFORE VOLTAGE!!!!
James Peters: :skip:!!! I can’t believe you are buying this bullshit. This woman… this doctor is pure evil and I don’t believe for a second she is suffering whatsoever. She had no issues darting into the ring and saving the match, killing Raven’s chances to get a victory in near record time!
Rich Russillo: Raven grabs Dr. Bethany Blue up and slams her to the mat with a judo style throw! Raven is going for the kneebar now but here comes Nurse Goldstein! Nurse Goldstein has recovered from that Talon kick and she hooks her arms over Raven’s and hoists her up in the air! FULL NELSON SLAM! Dr. Bethany Blue quickly scurries over to the corner and is back to her feet! She’s holding out her hand and just begging Nurse Goldstein for the tag!
James Peters: The ‘injured’ Dr. Bethany Blue is in the ring now and she grabs Raven in a modified version of a sleeper. Raven is twisting her body, trying to fight out of it, but Dr. Blue keeps her down on the mat. Raven’s shoulders are down, but we all know that the women’s world champ has some of the best instincts in this business. She lifts the left shoulder off the ground and kicks up her legs, managing to catch Dr. Blue in the head. Dr. Blue releases the sleeper and Raven is quick to go for the kneebar again!
Rich Russillo: NURSE GOLDSTEIN RUSHES THE RING AND LOOKS TO CONNECT WITH A BIG BOOT!!!
James Peters: RAVEN LETS GO OF THE DOCTOR AND ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! NURSE GOLDSTEIN CRASHES INTO THE ROPES AND RAVEN GRABS HER FROM BEHIND… BRINGING HER DOWN WITH A BACKSTABBER! THE BIRD OF PREY GRABS DR. BETHANY BLUE AND PICKS HER UP… BODYSLAMMING HER DOWN ON TOP OF NURSE GOLDSTEIN! DR. BLUE AND NURSE GOLDSTEIN BOTH ROLL OUT OF THE RING, AND THIS CROWD IS GOING ABSOLUTELY CRAZY FOR RAVEN ROBERTS RIGHT NOW!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue and Nurse Rannanah Goldstein attempt to get their acts together on the outside, but Raven doesn’t want to wait! RAVEN SLIPS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, SPRINGS ON THE ROPES…. LIONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
James Peters: DR. BLUE SHOVES NURSE GOLDSTEIN AND THE NURSE TAKES THE FULL IMPACT OF THAT LIONSAULT!
Rich Russillo: That was so smart of our Interwire Champion, James! She did what she had to do! Raven is back to her feet now… TJD TO RAVEN! DR. BLUE JUST CONNECTED WITH THAT SUPERKICK AND RAVEN IS DOWN! DR. BLUE GRABS RAVEN AND THROWS HER INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS! RAVEN’S BACK COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL AND THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION GRABS RAVEN BY THE HAIR AND SLAMS HER FACE FIRST OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! SHE ROLLS RAVEN BACK INSIDE THE RING AND GOES FOR A COVER!!!
James Peters: Raven kicks out!
(The doctor does not look happy about the kick out at all.)
Rich Russillo: Dr. Blue is back up and she stomps on Raven a few times before heading over to the turnbuckles! Dr. Blue heads to the second one and she dives off… dropping her knee right down onto Raven’s chest! Dr. Blue hooks the legs!
James Peters: Another kick out from Raven!
(The doctor looks even unhappier about this kick out than she did about the previous one.)
Rich Russillo: Nurse Rannanah Goldstein is back on the apron now and she’s telling the doctor to tag her in! Dr. Blue grabs Raven by the hair and drags her over to their corner.
James Peters: Nurse Goldstein is in and together she and the doctor work in tandem! They hoist Raven up and hook her arms around the ropes. Dr. Blue with several precise kicks to the ribs of Raven Roberts and Nurse Goldstein has backed up into the opposite corner! She comes charging in and nearly takes Raven’s head off with a huge boot to the face! The referee sends the good doctor to the outside and Nurse Goldstein drags Raven to the center of the ring and goes for the cover!
Rich Russillo: Kick out by Raven!
James Peters: Nurse Goldstein doesn’t take the time to look frustrated though! She grabs Raven and lifts her up, wrapping her in a bear hug position! Now let’s get something straight. Raven is one of the taller, stronger women here in EAW, but the size of Nurse Goldstein is truly impressive. She’s got her arms locked tightly around Raven and no doubt she is trying to soften up that ribcage area! Nurse Goldstein takes Raven and rams her back first into the turnbuckles and she does this several more times before dropping Raven down into a seated position. Raven eats a knee to the face and Nurse Goldstein grabs her, and drags her over to the corner!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Blue is back in and isn’t it incredible how she’s recovered from her injuries just that quick?!
James Peters: :usure:!!!!
Rich Russillo: The doctor is so resilient and such an inspiration to the EAW Universe and to her patients. I mean, this is truly a gutsy performance and as much as I love Raven, the doctor is blowing me away tonight with her dedication to this great sport. She doesn’t have to be inside that ring after everything she went through last week, but here she is. :wow:
James Peters: Smh.
Rich Russillo: Dr. Blue has Raven down on the mat again, and she seems determined to keep the Bird of Prey off her feet. To be honest, Raven has proven herself several times over in the past in terms of being a skilled mat technician, but it seems like the doctor wants to show her worth on the ground as well. She’s got Raven in front facelock, but Raven has her arms free and has the doctor by the waist! Raven is able to roll to the side, and bring the doctor over with her, and Dr. Blue’s shoulders hit the mat! Dr. Blue rolls through and tries to get back to her feet, but Raven grabs onto the left ankle and snaps Dr. Blue back down to the mat! Raven maintains control of the ankle lock and she bends that left leg of Dr. Blue’s back, while hooking her arm underneath the chin! Raven pulls back on the neck and head, and pulls that leg forward and oh my! Dr. Blue’s foot is touching her head!
James Peters: Didn’t she try and tell us all that she suffered multiple MCL and ACL tears, or whatever the hell she droned on about this week??
Rich Russillo: Well the fact Raven is currently bending the doctor like a pretzel certainly isn’t going to help! If anything, this is going to make all of Dr. Blue’s injuries even worse and she really might not be able to go to Wicked Games and defend her championship against Terry! :lupe:!!
James Peters: Give me a break!
Rich Russillo: Raven continues to bend and stretch the doctor out. She has shifted her position on the mat and has wrapped up both of Dr. Blue’s legs now. Raven hooks the arms and she pulls Dr. Blue into a Mexican Surfboard submission hold! Dr. Blue is crying out in pain and Raven easily unhooks her arms and grabs Dr. Blue in a chinlock! That is putting so much pressure on the neck and this woman was just in a neckbrace!
James Peters: I’m not even going to entertain you right now because the fact of the matter is, Dr. Blue has two choices right now. She can somehow find a way out of this hold, or she can quit. I promise you if she was legitimately injured she would have submitted to the Universal Women’s Champion by now.
Rich Russillo: NURSE GOLDSTEIN IS IN THE RING NOW AND RAVEN IMMEDIATELY LETS GO OF THE DOCTOR! DR. BLUE SLAMS FACE FIRST INTO THE MAT BUT NURSE GOLDSTEIN IS ABLE TO GRAB RAVEN BEFORE THE BIRD OF PREY CAN GET TO HER FEET. SHE HURLS RAVEN INTO THE CORNER AND BEGINS UNLOADING BOXING STYLE PUNCHES TO RAVEN’S RIBS AND STOMACH! RAVEN FIGHTS BACK WITH SEVERAL VICIOUS FOREARM SHOTS AND SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A HEADBUTT! NURSE GOLDSTEIN STAGGERS BACK AND RAVEN PUSHES HERSELF OUT OF THE CORNER!!! SHE COMES FLYING OUT OF THE CORNER AND LEAPS UP! BEAK BREAKER! THAT CRAZY TILT-A-WHIRL STUNNER JUST SENT NURSE GOLDSTEIN TO THE MAT! DR. BLUE IS BACK UP AND HOBBLES TOWARDS RAVEN, BUT RAVEN TAKES HER DOWN WITH THE FACELIFT! THAT’S ONE OF THE BEST SPINNING HEEL KICKS IN THIS BUSINESS AND BOTH DOCTOR AND NURSE ARE DOWN. RAVEN GRABS NURSE GOLDSTEIN AND DRAGS HER OVER TO WHERE DR. BLUE IS DOWN! SHE RUNS THE ROPES, LEAPS UP, AND HITS ANOTHER LIONSAULT ON THE TWO OF THEM! RAVEN GETS BACK TO HER FEET AND SCALES THE ROPES!
James Peters: RAVEN’S WINGS!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT SHE COMES CRASHING DOWN ON NURSE GOLDSTEIN! DR. BLUE MOVED AT THE LAST MINUTE AND HAS DROPPED TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
James Peters: RAVEN IS BACK UP AND SHE LOOKS AROUND, SEEING THE DOC ON THE OUTSIDE! RAVEN SLIPS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND MAKES A BEELINE RIGHT FOR DR. BLUE! RAVEN LOOKS TO CONNECT WITH THE TALON, BUT DR. BLUE SIDE STEPS! RAVEN PUTS THE BREAKS ON BEFORE SHE HITS THE BARRICADES, AND WHIRLS AROUND…. TJD!!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!!!! RAVEN AVOIDS THE SUPERKICK! DR. BLUE IS FORCED TO PUT ON THE BREAKS THIS TIME! RAVEN GRABS DR. BLUE FROM BEHIND AND LOOKS TO PUT HER DOWN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT THE DOCTOR IS ABLE TO ELBOW HER WAY OUT AND SLIP BEHIND RAVEN! DR. BLUE TRIES FOR A GERMAN, BUT RAVEN FIGHTS HER WAY FREE! RAVEN AND DR. BLUE COME FACE TO FACE WITH EACH OTHER AND IT’S RAVEN WHO THROWS THE FIRST PUNCH! DR. BLUE THROWS A RIGHT HAND! AND NOW BOTH WOMEN ARE TRADING BLOWS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
James Peters: INSIDE THE RING NURSE GOLDSTEIN HAS GOTTEN BACK UP! SHE SEES WHAT’S HAPPENING AND WHAT THE HELL IS SHE ABOUT TO DO?! NURSE GOLDSTEIN SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AND WHAT THE FUCK?! TOPE CON HILO?!?!?!?!?!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Rich Russillo: NURSE RANNANAH GOLDSTEIN JUST HIT A TOPE CON HILO OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TOOK OUT DR. BETHANY BLUE!
James Peters: LOOK AT NURSE GOLDSTEIN’S FACE!!! SHE IS HORRIFIED! DR. BETHANY BLUE TOOK THE FULL IMPACT OF THAT AND SLAMMED HARD INTO THE GROUND! NURSE GOLDSTEIN IS PICKING THE DO-
Rich Russillo: TALON! TALON! NURSE GOLDSTEIN IS DOWN! RAVEN HAS GRABBED DR. BETHANY BLUE AND IS THROWING HER BACK INSIDE THE RING! THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION QUICKLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE AND LAUNCHES HERSELF INTO THE AIR! RAVEN’S WINGS! AND THIS TIME THE SPIRAL TAP CONNECTS ON DR. BLUE! RAVEN WITH THE COVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE WINNER OF THIS HANDICAP MATCH… THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… RAVEN ROBERTS!!!!
(“Mark My Words” by Dollskin begins to blast across the sound system and the audience erupts as Raven gets to her feet and has her hand raised.)
James Peters: This was a match full of fuckery and chaos, but in the end, the Universal Women’s Champion was able to defy the odds and get a little bit of revenge on Dr. Bethany Blue from a couple of weeks ago.
Rich Russillo: Dr. Blue sure showed a lot of grit and heart tonight, fighting through her life threatening injuries and of all things, pneumonia. However, it was a costly mistake by Nurse Rannanah Goldstein that ultimately kept their team from picking up the win.
James Peters: Seeing that big bitch fly and pull off a Tope Con Hilo is something I’ll never forget :wow:
Rich Russillo: Same, James. Same. Tonight definitely didn’t belong to the doctor or her nurse, but hey. That singles match winning streak is still intact.
(Raven makes her way from the ring, holding up the Universal Women’s Championship. As always, the amazing Bird of Prey fought the odds and won, and now knowing she will face either Constance Blevins or Minerva at Wicked Games, she can begin preparing to defend that championship she waited forever to win.)
(Voltage fades and returns to the backstage area. Terry Chambers is seen standing in front of a monitor watching the scene unfold at ringside. Nurse Goldstein has gotten into the ring and is cradling Dr. Bethany Blue in her arms, apologizing for the way the match ended. The camera picks up Dr. Blue babbling about her injuries being worse now, and a look of disgust crosses Terry’s face. The shot opens up to reveal HRDO standing beside Terry. After what went down on Showdown last night, HRDO looks in no mood to fuck around.)
Terry Chambers: I just want confirmation from you that no matter what kind of bullshit story that bitch comes up with that tries to get her out of Wicked Games, the match is on no matter what.
(HRDO nods his head.)
HRDO: Yes. Dr. Bethany Blue will be defending the Interwire Championship against you at Wicked Games. The Stretcher Match is still on. In fact, I’m going to give you a chance to face off against the good doctor before Wicked Games.
(Terry raises an eyebrow.)
HRDO: Next week, you’re going to team with Zak Simmons to take on Dr. Blue and Shawn Sturgis with The Woogieman at ringside acting as the Special Guest Enforcer. A lot of bullshit has gone down tonight, Woogie ruining the cage match is just one of the many things to add to my growing list of headaches.
(Terry immediately scowls.)
Terry Chambers: A tag team match?
HRDO: That’s what I said. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get back to my office.
(HRDO heads off leaving the former Interwire Champion standing there looking annoyed. Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for bunning snags featuring Jamie O’Hara. Honestly they’re just hot dogs, but try telling him that.)
(When Voltage returns, Bella is standing by for the final time tonight.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, this match is scheduled for one fall, and it is a tag team match! Introducing first..
(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes hits and the crowd begins cheering as Consuela Rose Ava walks out to the stage. She looks around the arena, and stops at the top of the ramp. Soon after, ‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day hits, and Ms. Extreme follows. The crowd continues to cheer as the Avas make their way down the ramp and into the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… The team of CONSUELA ROSE AVA AND MS. EXTREME!!!!
James Peters: These two are both in some big time matches at Wicked Games, as they face their opponents tonight in two separate matches. Ms. Extreme will be facing Charlie Marr for the EAW Championship. Consuela Rose Ava will be facing Korey Gaines for the 24/7 Contract. Tonight we’ll be getting a small preview as the four competitors face off in a tag team match!
Rich Russillo: It’s a bit hard to tell which team would win here tonight. I have to say though, Consuela and Ms. Extreme would likely serve as a better team. They’re family after all. Even so, this won’t be an easy match for them, or their opponents.
(‘Thunderstruck’ by AC/DC hits and the crowd has a mixed reaction, mainly due to Korey Gaines’ partner and his actions last week as the Aerial Wonder begins walking down to the stage. He stops at the ramp as well, as ‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits, causing any positive reaction to be replaced with boos. Soon after Charlie Marr and Jordie Ripley make their way down to the ring, with Korey Gaines following.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… Accompanied by Jordie Ripley… The team of KOREY GAINES AND THE EAW CHAMPION, CHARLIE MARR!!!!
James Peters: Well, here we go. Charlie Marr and Korey Gaines. Korey Gaines challenged Consuela for that 24/7 contract, but he didn’t stop there as he attacked her afterwards. Charlie Marr is gonna have a lot on his plate soon too. I’m sure Ms. Extreme is just itching to get her hands on him.
Rich Russillo: You know James. I think I’ll change my pick. Ms. Extreme and Consuela may have more teamwork, but with Jordie they lose the numbers game. As long as she keeps interfering I’m sure these two- or at least Charlie will easily have the advantage over them.
James Peters: Well, I guess so. Let’s start this match.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is underway! Consuela and Korey are starting this match off, and the two are quick to engage in a collar and elbow tie up! Consuela quickly is able to get the advantage as she gets a wastelock in on Korey, but that doesn’t last long as Korey pulls her in for a grounded headlock! Consuela is trying to get to her feet, causing Gaines to transition the hold into more of a chinlock, but Consuela connects with a snapmare to escape the submission, before running the ropes! CONSUELA ATTEMPTED A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF GAINES’ HEAD, BUT GAINES MANAGED TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! Gaines now grabbing Consuela from behind, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX! GAINES WITH THE FIRST PINFALL OF THE MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Quick kick out by Consuela! Both competitors manage to get back to their feet relatively quickly, but Gaines is able to make the first move as he irish whips Consuela into the ropes! Consuela now bouncing off the ropes, and she manages to duck a Clothesline bedore rebounding off the opposite pair, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK BY CONSUELA! Gaines was rocked by that dropkick but he’s still able to get back to his feet- BUT THERE’S AN ARM DRAG AS HE TRIED TO CHARGE TOWARDS CONSUELA! Consuela now with a chinlock of her own, and Gaines may be in a bit of trouble! So far this is serving as a great preview of what may happen at Wicked Games!
James Peters: Consuela now with an irish whip to the corner, and now she charges in- RIGHT INTO A BOOT FROM GAINES! Gaines now onto the second rope, AND THERE’S A DIVING MISSILE DROPKICK FROM THE SECOND ROPE, SENDING CONSUELA ACROSS THE RING! Gaines now charging towards the corner, BUT CONSUELA MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW SHE DROPKICKS GAINES INTO THE CORNER FROM BEHIND! CONSUELA NOW WITH THE TAG TO MS. EXTREME! CONSUELA NOW HOLDING KOREY IN A FULL NELSON, AND THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY MS. EXTREME, WHO FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DDT! Great tag maneuver by the two, and there’s a cover by Ms. Extreme!
Rich Russillo: Gaines kicks out! Ms. Extreme now dragging Gaines to his feet, and there’s another irish whip to the ropes, followed by a single leg dropkick! Ms. Extreme off the ropes now, and there’s a leg drop! Ms. Extreme is in control of this match right now, and these fans couldn’t be any happier as Ms. Extreme looks directly at Charlie while going for another pin!
Rich Russillo: GAINES KICKS OUT AGAIN! Ms. Extreme dragging Gaines up now, and she’s bringing him to the turnbuckles. Ms. Extreme now, slamming Korey’s head onto the turnbuckle repeatedly! Ms. Extreme is relentless here as she’s smashing his head onto the turnbuckle over and over! Wait! No! Gaines is able to put a foot onto the turnbuckle, and there’s an elbow to Ms. Extreme’s face! Gaines now with a kick to the midsection, and he attempts a suplex but Ms. Extreme is able to land on her feet, AND THERE’S A JUMPING NECKBREAKER! The Ava’s are doing great right now, Korey needs to find a way back into this match, and that just may be what he’s planning to do as he pulls himself out onto the apron!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme now trying to pull Korey up from the apron- but Korey connects with a punch to the jaw! Korey now, WITH A SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE, TAKING OUT MS. EXTREME! It looks like Korey managed to find his way back into this one as Ms. Extreme crawls into the corner! Korey now charging in, AND THERE’S A RUNNING UPPERCUT INTO THE CORNER! Korey now grabbing Ms. Extreme, AND THIS TIME HE CONNECTS WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! Korey now throwing Ms. Extreme into his and Charlie’s corner, and he charges in once again, this time hitting a Clothesline! Korey taking Ms. Extreme out of the corner now- BUT CHARLIE NOW TAGS HIMSELF IN!
Rich Russillo: Korey seemed a little surprised by that tag as he was starting to get back into the match, but he seems fine with it as Charlie connects with a kick to Ms. Extreme’s midsection! Charlie now, THROWING MS. EXTREME SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!! Charlie seemed to be able to easily capitalize off of those moves Korey pulled off, right now Ms. Extreme seems to be in some trouble! Charlie now running the ropes as Ms. Extreme finally gets out of the corner, CHARING CROSS- NO! MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO DUCK AN EARLY CHARING CROSS, AND NOW SHE JUST SENT CHARLIE OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE! JORDIE IS RIGHT THERE TO HELP CHARLIE BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT MS. EXTREME IS RUNNING THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE, TAKING OUT BOTH THE EAW CHAMPION AND JORDIE RIPLEY!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme now rolling Charlie back into the ring, and now she’s heading up to the top rope! GLASS CEILING- NO! CHARLIE BACKED UP, THE GLASS CEILING DOESN’T CONNECT, AND NOW THERE’S A RUNNING KNEE BY CHARLIE, RIGHT TO THE BACK OF MS. EXTREME’S HEAD! CHARLIE MANAGED TO AVOID THAT GLASS CEILING, AND MS. EXTREME’S GOT TO BE HURTING AFTER THAT RUNNING KNEE! CHARLIE NOW WITH THE COVER ON MS. EXTREME!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT! Charlie now taking a second to catch his breath, likely still hurt after that suicide dive, but man if Charlie can pull things off like that at Wicked Games, he may be able to knock off Ms. Extreme! Charlie now dragging Ms. Extreme up to her feet, and he’s beginning to hook the arms! He may be setting up for the Queen is Dea- WAIT NO! MS. EXTREME WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! THAT WAS OUT OF NOWHERE!
Rich Russillo: The strength of Ms. Extreme was on display there as she managed to lift Charlie up and deliver that northern lights suplex just as he was ready to end the match! Ms. Extreme now slowly making her way over to her corner, and there’s the tag to Consuela! Ms. Extreme now pulling on Charlie’s left arm, AND THERE’S CONSUELA WITH A STOMP RIGHT ONTO IT! Ms. Extreme now exiting the ring as Charlie is in pain! Consuela now, with a fujiwara armbar on Charlie! Charlie is managing to pull himself towards the ropes, but you’ve got to think that an injured arm would provide a huge advantage for Ms. Extreme come Wicked Games! Even so, Charlie finally makes it to the ropes, forcing Consuela to release the submission!
James Peters: Consuela now with a huge knee lift into the midsection of Charlie, just after bringing him back to his feet! Consuela now with an irish whip- NO! CHARLIE TURNS IT INTO ONE OF HIS OWN! CHARLIE NOE CATCHING CONSUELA OFF THE ROPES! THE HEADMASTER RITUAL!! THE HEADMASTER RITUAL, THE SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS!! CHARLIE NOW CRAWLING BACK TOWARDS HIS CORNER, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO KOREY GAINES! GAINES NOW BRINGING CONSUELA TO HER KNEES, AND THERE’S THE OKIE DESTROYER! THAT DEVASTATING CANADIAN DESTROYER CONNECTS, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER TO POSSIBLY PUT AWAY CONSUELA ROSE AVA!
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA GOT THE SHOULDER UP!! GAINES CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER YET! BOTH THE HEADMASTER RITUAL AND THE OKIE DESTROYER BACK TO BACK, SOMEHOW IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO DEFEAT CONSUELA! Gaines is gonna have to think of something big if he wants to put this match away, I’m sure there’s no way Consuela is gonna want to be pinned by her opponent at Wicked Games tonight! Gaines now climbing up to the top rope, and I think this match could be coming to an end if whatever he’s thinking works! Gaines now, WITH THE OKLAHOMA TWISTER!!
James Peters: NO! CONSUELA GOT HER KNEES UP! GAINES JUST CRASHED RIGHT ONTO CONSUELA’S KNEES AS HE ATTEMPTED THE OKLAHOMA TWISTER! CONSUELA MANAGED TO SAVE HERSELF IN THIS MATCH IT LOOKS LIKE! CONSUELA NOW CRAWLING TOWARDS THE ROPES, TRYING TO USE THEM TO GET TO HER FEET, MEANWHILE GAINES IS DOING THE SAME IN THE CORNER! BOTH COMPETITORS HAVE SUCCESSFULLY MADE IT BACK TO THEIR FEET, AND NOW GAINES IS THE ONE CHARGING TOWARDS CONSUELA- SPANISH FLY!! CONSUELA JUST HIT GAINED WITH A SPANISH FLY! CONSULEA MANAGED TO CONNECT WITH THAT SPANISH FLY BUT SHE CAN’T CAPITALIZE! IT SEEMS LIKE SHE’S TOO EXHAUSTED OVER WHAT JUST TRANSPIRED TO ACTUALLY MAKE THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: Consuela is desperately crawling towards her corner, and she’s getting close but Korey is beginning to do the same! Consuela though, MAKES THE TAG! MS. EXTREME IS IN BEFORE KOREY COULD MAKE IT TO HIS CORNER, AND NOW SHE GRABS KOREY AND THROWS HIM TOWARDS THE ROPES! SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX BY MS. EXTREME! GAINES IS ROCKED AS HE FALLS INTO THE CORNER, AND THERE’S A RUNNING DROPKICK BY THE FORMER PURE CHAMPION, AND POSSIBLY NEXT EAW CHAMPION! MS. EXTREME TAKING GAINES OUT OF THE CORNER NOW, AND THERE’S A TWIST OF FATE- NO! GAINES PUSHES MS. EXTREME AWAY- AND THERE’S A SUPERKICK BY GAINES!
James Peters: GAINES JUST DROPPED MS. EXTREME WITH THAT SUPERKICK! GAINES NOW CRAWLING TOWARDS HIS CORNER, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO CHARLIE! CHARLIE IS BACK IN THIS MATCH AND THE FIRST THING HE’S DOING IS GOING RIGHT AFTER CONSUELA! CHARLIE JUST KNOCKED CONSUELA OFF THE APRON WITH A HUGE BOOT- BUT THAT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN THE BEST IDEA AS THERE’S MS. EXTREME WITH A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP! SHE MIGHT STEAL THIS ONE!!
James Peters: NO! CHARLIE KICKS OUT AND THE FIRST THING HE DOES IS ROLL OUT OF THE RING! Ms. Extreme looks ready to go for it again though, AS SHE BEGINS TO RUN THE ROPE- WAIT! JORDIE IS GRABBING THE LEG OF MS. EXTREME! THE REFEREE COMING OVER TO TELL JORDIE TO LET GO, BUT IT’S TOO LATE NOW AS CHARLIE IMMEDIATELY CAPITALIZES WITH A KNEE TO MS. EXTREME’S MIDSECTION! CHARLIE NOW, TOSSING MS. EXTREME OUT OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: Charlie grabbing Ms. Extreme by the neck now, and I don’t like this. Charlie now aiming for the steel steps- AND HE TRIED TO THROW MS. EXTREME INTO THEM BUT MS. EXTREME TURNED IT AROUND! CHARLIE WAS JUST NOW SENT INTO THE STEEL STEPS, CAN MS. EXTREME CAPITALIZE NOW!? MS. EXTREME NOW GRABBING CHARLIE, AND USING BOTH HANDS SHE THROWS HIM INTO THE RING POST! Ms. Extreme now backing up as Charlie is leaning on the post, and this doesn’t look great! MS. EXTREME NOW CHARGING IN- BUT JORDIE STEPS RIGHT IN FRONT OF CHARLIE, CAUSING MS. EXTREME TO STOP RIGHT IN HER TRACKS!
James Peters: BUT THAT DOESN’T LAST TOO LONG, AS THERE’S A KICK TO JORDIE’S MIDSECTION, AND NOW MS. EXTREME JUST SENT HER INTO THE BARRICADE! CHARLIE MANAGED TO ROLL HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING, AND MS. EXTREME IS DOING THE SAME AT A COUNT OF SEVEN! Ms. Extreme lifting Charlie up now- NO! CHARLIE PUSHES MS. EXTREME BACK! CHARING CROSS- NO! MS. EXTREME CONNECTS WITH A DROP TOE HOLD, AND NOW SHE’S SETTING IT UP! RED HANDED! THE RED HANDED IS LOCKED IN ON CHARLIE MARR, AND RIGHT NOW HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO AS THEY ARE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! IS MS. EXTREME GOING TO MAKE THE EAW CHAMPION TAP OUT TONIGHT!? WAIT, NO! LOOK WHO IT IS!
Rich Russillo: KOREY GAINES HAS ENTERED THE RING, POSSIBLY TO BREAK UP THE SUBMISSION- BUT CONSUELA IS IN AS WELL! WAIT NO! KOREY CHARGED RIGHT FOR CONSUELA AND SENT HER OVER THE TOP ROPE! KOREY MIGHT JUST COST HIMSELF THE MATCH DOING THIS, BUT HE DOESN’T SEEM TO CARE AS HE’S FOCUSED ON HIS WICKED GAMES OPPONENT! KOREY RUNNING THE ROPES, OVER THE TOP ROPE MOONSAULT PLANCHA!! KOREY GAINES JUST TOOK OUT BOTH HIMSELF AND CONSUELA WITH THAT MOONSAULT AS THEY BOTH CRASHED INTO THAT BARRICADE, ALL THE MEANWHILE CHARLIE IS SO CLOSE TO TAPPING OUT HERE! GAINES MAY HAVE JUST THROWN OUT THE MATCH TO GET ONE UP OVER THE CURRENT 24/7 CONTRACT HOLDER!
James Peters: WAIT, NO! CHARLIE MANAGES TO PULL MS. EXTREME’S LEG WITH HIS FREE ARM, CAUSING HER TO LOSE HER GRIP ON THE SUBMISSION! CHARLIE MANAGED TO ESCAPE THE RED HANDED, AND NOW HE’S STUMBLING BACK INTO THE CORNER! MS. EXTREME DOESN’T SEEM TO CARE AS SHE IMMEDIATELY CHARGES RIGHT TOWARDS CHARLIE, BUT ONCE AGAIN SHE’S SENT INTO THE RING POST AS CHARLIE GETS OUT OF THE WAY! CHARLIE NOW ATTEMPTING A SCHOOL BOY BUT MS. EXTREME GOT OUT OF IT IMMEDIATELY! MS. EXTREME NOW WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION OF CHARLIE! TWIST OF FATE- NO! CHARLIE ESCAPED IT JUST BEFORE IT COULD CONNECT, AND NOW THERE’S ANOTHER ROLL UP AND CHARLIE IS GRABBING THE TIGHTS! CHARLIE’S GONNA STEAL THE MATCH!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS… KOREY GAINES, AND THE EAW CHAMPION, CHARRLIIEEEE MAAARRRRR!!!!!!
James Peters: HE DID IT! CHARLIE MANAGED TO STEAL THE WIN! MS. EXTREME WAS SO CLOSE BUT CHARLIE MANAGED TO COUNTER THE TWIST OF FATE AND STEAL THE MATCH WITH THAT ROLL UP! Ms. Extreme can’t believe what just happened! Charlie Marr just defeat the challenger to his EAW Championship! Could this be what we see at Wicked Games!?
Rich Russillo: I thought Gaines had cost his team the match by taking out both himself and Consuela, but it looks like I was completely wrong as it wasn’t too long after Charlie managed to escape the Red Handed. Ms. Extreme is probably very pissed off at the way this match just ended, but she needs to make sure that doesn’t happen come Wicked Games, or her dreams of becoming EAW Champion goes out the window.
James Peters: Well, either way that was quite the match. Both teams gave it their all, despite Charlie stealing the win at the end.
Rich Russillo: You’re right about that. Well, that’s all for tonight. Thank you for joining us here on Voltage, and we’ll see you all next week!
(‘It Ain’t Safe’ plays and the crowd boos as Charlie Marr grabs Jordie and makes his way up the ramp with her. Ms. Extreme is still in the ring, staring the Champion down, still soaking in the loss. Meanwhile, Gaines and Consuela are barely moving, just realizing the match is over.)
