(Instead of the intro playing, Voltage fades right to the commentary team. There’s no recap of Clash of Kingdoms or Territorial Invasion, no opening pyro with Voltage’s theme music, or anything of the sort. Instead the first thing shown as Voltage opens up is James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone. All of the commentators look concerned with the exception of Persephone, who weirdly enough actually looks excited for some reason. The crowd is somewhat quiet as they’re confused by the change of pace, but soon after the show fades in, James Peters begins to speak.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Sunday night Voltage. As always, I’m James Peters, and with me is Rich Russillo and Persephone Tsitsipas. I’d love to go into detail about our last two events, Territorial Invasion and Clash of Kingdoms, but unfortunately that can’t happen right now. Instead, we actually have some breaking news.
Rich Russillo: Right as Voltage was about to come on the air and we were preparing for yet another fantastic show, we were given the heads up that something bad was happening in the parking lot.
James Peters: We didn’t get to see the entirety of what happened out there, however we were at least able to get some footage of what’s going on out there. This is extremely important, so let’s take a look.
Persephone: I don’t know about the two of you, but I’m actually excited to see this :drakelike:.
James Peters: :francis:
(As the commentators stop speaking, the large titantron lights up as it turns on, before cutting to footage of the parking lot for the Motorpoint Arena, the location for this week’s Voltage.)
[SCREENBAR – Motorpoint Arena’s parking lot.]
(The camera opens up, and the first thing shown is a bunch of paramedics surrounding someone. It’s unknown who’s being helped at first, but there’s talking heard amongst the crowd as they’re clearly worried about the presence of the paramedics. As the workers all move around, the person is eventually revealed to the camera, and all that could be heard once said person is revealed, is concern from the fans.)
(It’s Jamie O’Hara, who seems to be unconscious. Following the concern, booing can be heard from the fans as one of their biggest fan favorites is seen hurt. Not only is he hurt, but he can be seen being put in a neck brace, showing just how serious his injury seems to be. Eventually, the camera’s able to spot a few more people, and those people happen to be the Voltage commissioner Captain Charisma, and a few security guards who Captain Charisma’s talking to for help. Captain Charisma can’t believe what he’s seeing with Jamie O’Hara’s injury, and the only people he could really ask about it were the security guards.)
Captain Charisma: You guys had to have seen something. There’s no way that something like this is just an accident. Did you guys see ANYTHING??
Security Guard: We unfortunately weren’t able to catch anything, but I can guarantee that this was the result of an attack. We came out here as soon as we possibly could, and that’s when we found Jamie, who was unconscious.
(Captain Charisma continues listening, but you can tell from his face that he’s upset. The booing continues from the crowd, and it starts to grow louder as it’s revealed that Jamie’s injury was the result of an attack.)
Captain Charisma: So what happened? Who was it?
Security Guard: As soon as we heard the commotion, we all came rushing out here. Once we came out, we saw Drake King, Myles and Minerva walking away from him.
(The booing grows as loud as it possibly could, and while Captain Charisma probably shouldn’t be surprised that it’d be these three doing something like this, he’s furious upon hearing that New Eden are the ones responsible for taking Jamie O’Hara out.)
Captain Charisma: God damn it..
(Captain Charisma watches as Jamie O’Hara is put inside of the ambulance, still in disbelief over what happened, before finally looking back at the security guard.)
Captain Charisma: And you’re sure it was them? Are you completely sure that they actually attacked Jamie and nothing else could’ve happened here?
Security Guard: One hundred percent. There was nobody else it could possibly be. As soon as we heard the attack, we came rushing out to see what was going on.
Captain Charisma: FUCK!… I should’ve known. I should’ve fucking known that they’d pull some shit like this after Territorial Invasion.
(Captain Charisma’s pretty much fuming after finding out who’s responsible for the attack, and as he watches the paramedics take care of Jamie O’Hara, the video stops. The crowd’s boos continue though, which is not a surprise at all after the fans had to learn that New Eden has taken Jamie O’Hara out of action. The crowd fades back to the commentary area, and almost immediately Persephone can be seen laughing over what happened, which pretty much disgusts James Peters.)
Persephone: :mjlol2: JAMIE O’HARA GOT KILLED BY NEW EDEN!!! Didn’t New Eden just take an L at Territorial Invasion? Then one of them took another L at Clash of Kingdoms? These three suck and now because of them we’re probably not gonna be seeing Jamie O’Hara anytime soon :mjlol:. That really just shows how shitty Jamie O’Hara is if you ask me. Rexy would’ve never let that happen to him, but not everyone could be as amazing as him.
James Peters: :francis:
Persephone: What? I’m pretty sure I didn’t say anything wrong. Jamie shouldn’t have gotten himself fucked up. That’s his problem.
James Peters: Have some respect. Jamie O’Hara was the Answers World Champion just this time last year, and that’s only a fraction of what he’s accomplished in this business. It wasn’t even that long ago that he led Voltage to a win in Brand Warfare. Jamie O’Hara’s often regarded as one of the greatest of all time and that’s not a stretch at all. I hate that this is how we have to open up Voltage, but at this point none of us should be surprised that New Eden’s bullshit is the first thing we have to deal with.
Rich Russillo: Jamie really didn’t look like he was in good condition. He looked really bad out there, and Captain Charisma was rightfully pissed. All we can do at this point is hope Jamie O’Hara will be okay. Things like this are never fun to deal with, and I hate that New Eden’s taken things this far once again. I’m not sure what motivated them to go after Jamie, or what they were attempting to do, but they might’ve gotten what they wanted. Seeing how he looked out there, I don’t expect to see Jamie back in the near future.
James Peters: Captain Charisma was originally going to open up Voltage, but there’s just no way that that’s going to happen right now. Instead, we’ll be going straight to break, and when we return we’ll be going straight to our first match of the night.
(From there, Voltage begins to fade away from the commentary table, and transition to the first commercial break of the night.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial for Andre Walker’s car insurance, in case you crash your car participating in races.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside, where Bella Braxton is seen standing in the ring.)
Bella Braxton Ladies and Gentlemen the following contest is a triple threat match scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!

James Peters: First match in a while for Sebastian Garcia who we have not heard from verbally since September 10th!

( Ding! Ding!! Ding!!! )
James Peters: And This Match Is Officially Underway! All three men are at the center of the ring and are mouthing each other off, well actually it’s Sebastian Garcia who does most of the talking, Shane Gates just nods and doesn’t look impressed, he rolls his eyes while Redwood is growing impatient. Garcia is flaunting, bragging still talking, and thrashing WOAH!!! A BITCH SLAP FROM REDWOOD SENDS GARCIA STEPPING BACKWARDS AND LANDING ON HIS ASS!
Persephone: That sure shut him up! For now, it seems.
Rich Russillo: Gates looks mildly entertained while Garcia seems angry but he gets up and moves into a clinch with Redwood! The two of them lock horns for a while with no clear winner before they get separated by the official. Meanwhile, Shane Gates is leaning in a corner watching the two men start things out without him and doesn’t seem to be bothered whatsoever. The two clinching belligerent go at it again but this time Garcia gets the upper hand! Irish Whip into the cor-no! Reversed by Kirk who whips Sebastian into a corner, quickly he follows the opponent with a corner clothesline then another, and a third one and he doesn’t let go he keeps it up by throwing a series of body punches to the Dog of War before actually getting into a mounted position from the second rope and begins to deliver haymakers! The crowd is counting along!
Crowd: One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! Seven! Eight! Nine!
James Peters: Sebastian kisses the knuckles from the hand who delivered the first nine strikes before ending the sequence with number 10!

HARD LANDING AS SHANE DRIVES HIM HARD ON THE MAT! Meanwhile, Redwood slowly stumbles forward in a zombie-like state, he is about to fall forward comically and he does… RIGHT INTO THE CROTCH OF SHANE GATES! HE DIDN’T SAW THAT ONE COMING!
Persephone: I’m sure he felt it though!
James Peters: Gates is holding onto his crotch as he held onto dear life the pain must be intense as Redwood slowly gets up only to be greeted by Garcia’s CLOTHESLINING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND!! SEBASTIAN GARCIA PICKS UP KIRK AND LIFTS HIM UP! HOOKS THE LEGS FOR A COVER!!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: Too soon! Kirk Redwood kicks out!
Persephone: Sure, he moved quickly following the first offense, but this match is starting to suck already!
James Peters: Shane rolls out of the ring taking a breather trying to walk off the pain as Kirk now reverses a whip to the ropes and puts Garcia down with a shoulder block! Down goes Sebastian which is followed by a clothesline as Garcia gets back vertical! Followed by another! And a third! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO SEBASTIAN WHO REELS BACK INTO A CORNER! Kirk is going for some knife-edge chops those are stiff we quickly begin to see Sebastian’s chest turn red from them! The fans are Wooo’ing with each one that Kirk delivers harshly on his opponent! A BELLY-TO-BACK SUPLEX SUDDENLY BY KIRK FROM THE CORNER! FOLLOWED BY A COVER!!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Persephone: A kick out… Yay…
Rich Russillo: Redwood waits for his opponent to get back to a vertical base, both men stare at each other before they go for a clinch but Garcia tries to go for a leg takedown which is countered by Kirk who goes to the ropes forcing the official to order Garcia to stop his action. The official gets him to back away and Redwood tries to take advantage of a clothesline that is ducked by Garcia. He tries to counter with a superkick but Redwood is quick enough to step back and away from it and how has his back against his opponent! EXPLODER SUPLEX BY KIRK REDWOOD!! GARCIA GOES DOWN HARD! Kirk tries for yet another pin fall BUT SEBASTIAN TRIES TO REVERSE WITH A SCHOOLBOY PINFALL ATTEMPT! GARCIA TRIES TO END THIS NOW!
James Peters: SHANE JUST SAVED THE MATCH BY PULLING SEBASTIAN GARCIA OFF OF KIRK REDWOOD BY THE LEG! HE DRAGS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE AND BEGINS TO THROW HEAVY PUNCHES TO THE FACE OF SEBASTIAN! QUICK IRISH WHIP! GARCIA’S FACE MEETS A CORNER POST! DOWN GOES THE PRETTY BOY! SHANE GOES INSIDE THE RING AND GOES TO STAND FACE TO FACE WITH KIRK! Both of them just can’t seem to keep apart these days and suddenly they throw chops at one another! Kirk! Then Shane! Followed by Kirk! And another by Shane then both men simply throws all they’ve got in the form of quick palm strikes and Shane is getting the upper hand!! Japanese arm drag from Gates followed by a drop kick just as Kirk got vertical AND THEN A BIG BOOT!! COVER BY SHANE!!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: A kick out by Kirk to continue this match! Shane Gates is up to his feet, looking down on his opponent simply staring before getting Kirk to his feet and whip him into the ropes! GORILLA PRESS SPINE BUSTEEEEEEEEEER!!! Perfectly executed! He follows it with a running senton that lands on the dot! He goes for a co-NO! Kirk shoves him off right away the official didn’t have time to even drop to his knees!
Persephone: Sounds wrong when you say it this way bud.
James Peters: He tries to fight himself back into this following a strong sequence from Gates by throwing a thumb to the eye which gets a warning from the official yet Kirk doesn’t care! Redwood with palm strikes followed by a German suplex taking down Shane Gates before getting him to his feet and whip him into the ropes. On the return, he lifts his opponent up WHO LANDS IN THE TOP ROPES! STUN GUN BY KIRK REDWOOD! Gates bounces to his feel reeling backward AND KIRK CLAMPS IN A SLEEPERHOLD!! THE SLEEPER HOLDS ON TO SHANE WHO IS FLAILING HIS ARMS! IS THIS HOW THIS MATCH WILL END?
Persephone: PLEASE DO! I’m Falling Asleep Myself!!
Rich Russillo: The official is checking on Shane who seems to be unresponsive more and-SEBASTIAN GARCIA WITH A DROPKICK TO KIRK REDWOOD BREAKING THE HOLD! Smart move by Garcia who then goes to drive a leg drop on Redwood while Shane Gates is slowly trying to shake the cobwebs out from the move he almost lost to!
Persephone: We almost moved on to the next part of the show. ALMOST!
James Peters: Garcia doesn’t want this match to end and quickly he tosses Redwood outside of the ring as if this was Grand Rampage before putting his focus on Shane Gates who did a number on him earlier in the match! Shane is now on the receiving end of a slew of punches followed by a whip into a corner and a crossbody that hands hard on Gates! Garcia looks outside of the ring quickly noticing something and he suddenly dashes to the ro-TOPE CON HILO INTO A HURRICANRANA ON KIRK REDWOOD SENDING HIM INTO THE BARRICADES!!! HOLY COW!!! GARCIA JUST TOOK OUT REDWOOD! He goes to slide back into the ring having laid down Kirk BUT SHANE GRABS HIM BU THE HEAD INTO A FACEBREAKER DDT!!! WELCOME BACK TO THE RING GARCIA!! COVER BY GATES!!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: BARELY! GARCIA KICKS OUT OF THE DDT!! He will feel it tomorrow! Both men get up on their feet Gates helping more like forcing Sebastian up and Shane Gates sends Garcia down again with a clothesline from bouncing off the ropes! He follows it with a Gutbuster drop! A Quick cover by the Kid!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Persephone: Only there was a little blood this match would feel thrilling… Just a little.
James Peters: Garcia shoves Gates off stopping the official count then both men are getting up on their feet once more! Sebastian attempts a dropkick but Gates grabs his legs in mid-air before springboarding him over the top ropes and outside of the ring! Gates is bragging to the crowd of live fans he didn’t see Garcia actually landed on his feet and is quickly sliding back into the ring and is right behind him! Shane turns around only to get collected by a dropkick sending him down! He gets back up but gets clotheslined outside of the ring by the young sensation!!
Rich Russillo: Garcia slides outside of the ring obviously not wanting to give much of a break to his opponent tonight on Sunday Night Voltage! Grabbing Shane’s head he shoves him back in the ring! Shane gets to his feet quickly and kicks the bottom rope as Garcia was going in the ring the ropes going up his groin!! The official is warning Shane who doesn’t seem to give much of a damn as he goes rushes to the ropes giving himself momentum to attack BUT WAIT!
James Peters: SLINGBLADE BY KIRK WHO IS BACK IN THIS FIGHT FROM THE OUTSIDE!! Headbutt a stiff one by Redwood followed by leg kicks and a double leg takedown and an armbar! He is trying to break Garcia’s arm but Shane throws himself over the two men breaking the hold! KIRK ROLLS UP SHANE BY SURPRISE!!!
Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWW-
James Peters: It will take more than that to finish Shane tonight Kirk! Smart play though quick thinking! Redwood is on the offense on Garcia with a dragon suplex followed by a running knee strike!

( DING! DING!! DING!!! )
( ‘Swallowing the rabbit whole’ by Code Orange plays over the sound system of the Motorpoint Arena as Shane Gates gets his arm raised in victory! )
Bella Braxton: Here Is Your Winner; SHANE GATES!!!!!!!
James Peters: A strong performance by all three men but it was Shane Gates that emerged the victor tonight!
Rich Russillo: All seemed lost to him at some point but he powered through and emerged the victor.
Persephone: Finally we can m-
( We see Shane Gates rolling out of the ring and make his way towards the back but as he is walking up the ramp when..)
Shane Gates: :comeagain:
James Peters: IT’S LIZZIE!!!! LIZZIE THE DOLL!!!!
Rich Russillo: :wtf: I thought Shane had seen the last of her!
Persephone: Clearly not.
(Shane looks extremely confused and shocked as he sees Lizzie, but suddenly she vanishes, which only causes even more panic between everyone. Shane has a look of disbelief on his face as he thought he was done with that doll, but after what just happened there’s no way he could be sure.)
Shane Gates: :comeagain: !!!
James Peters: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: :krabs: Don’t tell me that doll is still terrorizing this place!
(As Shane looks around to see if Lizzie is still in the arena, Voltage begins to fade away from ringside.)
(Camera cuts to Molly Waters standing in a designated interview area.)
Molly Waters: These past few weeks have been jam packed with excitement. Coming right off the back of Territorial Invasion, we went straight into Clash of Kingdoms. My guest at this time had her ups, and her downs, and we’ll get her thoughts on all of it. Ladies, and Gentlemen please welcome, the new Specialists Champion.. Miku Sakai..
(Miku walks into frame holding her newly won Specialists Championship nodding her head, with her middle finger up to Molly just because but also with a pouty frown.)
Molly Waters: Is the middle finger necessary?
Miku Sakai: Yes, fuck you, I’m the champ I can do whatever I want..
Molly Waters: Alright, anyway, Miku I do want to talk to you about what happened at Territorial Invasion, but I do know you wanted to give an update on your tag team partner Hikari Kanno after what happened at Clash of Champions first?
(Miku tries to put a brave face on, puts her finger down and forces a smile)
Miku Sakai: Yes, so, the deal with Hikari is.. My bff, and the greatest partner in the entire world seems to have suffered an awful fate that she doesn’t deserve. Hikari has suffered a very bad ACL and MCL tear, not that there is ever a good one, and will be gone for quite some time. But as we all know she is a Goddess, so terrible ACL, and MCL tear for some, isn’t like what it is for her. You might be out for a year, she might be out for a few weeks! .. But you know.. Probably a lot longer than that. She has undergone successful surgery to repair both injuries, and as we speak she is resting, and rehabbing back home in Japan. Hikari loves this sport, and is already wanting to be back in the ring, slaying bitches, destroying cunts, and enjoying the love of the simp army. And to our simps I want you to know that she has received all your get well soon letters, and cards and she has promptly thrown them into either the garbage can, or burned them in a fire. As she will not bother herself into reading whatever shit you want to say to her, she doesn’t care, she actually hates you. But keep that support coming! We don’t have a real time table for her return, so don’t fucking ask me, or her. Greatness can’t be rushed, and she won’t risk anything that is unneeded. I can hold the fort down, she just needs to focus on herself. I want her to be 100% and I know that’s what she wants too.. I don’t want her to come back before she’s ready because she feels like she needs to, only to go right back into this process again. It’s been hard on both of us, and I would rather not relive it ever again. And, I got business to handle here by myself anyway.
(Miku smirks and looks down at the Specialists Championship)
Miku Sakai: If Territorial Invasion taught me anything, it’s that I am more than capable of standing out here all by my lonesome, and succeeding. Did you see what happened Molly?
Molly Waters: I did actually. You went into Territorial Invasion against Bethany Blue in a Lumberjack match, and came out on top! It was highly impressive.
Miku Sakai: For fucks sake.. So you didn’t watch at all did you? You clearly looked up spoilers, and saw that it said Miku Sakai defeated Bethany Blue. Which is true! But to just say what you said without any dialogue about anything that happened in said match, is a disservice to me. I mean for real, that’s all you had to say about it? IT WAS A FIVE STAR CLASSIC! STUPID CUNT TRY TO DISCREDIT ME SOME MORE WHY DON’T YOU! Ok.. So since you don’t know how to properly recall a match, let me help you out! I know you don’t know the gruesome details, or you choose to not hype the match up to its fullest abilities.. So allow me. There I was, Miku Sakai, all by myself, surrounded by nurses with lethal weapons in their pockets, simps that are so malnurssed they can’t even help themselves to bathe ever! I was outmatched, I was predicted to lose! But I stood my ground, Beth Blue got injected with some sort of fast acting steroid, and even that wasn’t enough. Performance enhancing drugs couldn’t put Miku Sakai out! Hikari, bless her heart, never even came out because she knew that I had it in the bag. I didn’t need any help, and with the odds stacked against me I pulled it out! I showed the world what I was capable of! And if there’s any doubters left, let me make sure to change your mind as I make this the greatest, most memorable Specialists Championship reign of all time. I proved that Bethany Blue is nothing more than a cheating bitch, that can’t handle a REAL wrestling talent. I proved that I am smarter than her, have more intestinal fortitude, and just.. Overall the better talent. She’s clearly an embarrassment to wrestling, and medicine.. Oh AND humanity as a whole. Fuck that stupid bitch, I hope she neve finds any success in her life, as long as she lives.. Whether that’s personal or professional.. I hope Adam chokes her to death with his baby carrot dick.. Fuck I hate her.
(Molly stands there awkwardly for a second)
Molly Waters: *ahem* Well.. Seems like you have some strong feelings there, but what I want to know… How does it feel to have a singles championship to go along with the tag team title? And what are your plans for the belt?
(Miku shakes in happiness)
Miku Sakai: You know hag? It feels.. It feels right. It feels as though something was missing, and I filled the void. Losing the Unified Tag Team Championships to whoever those people were, I don’t even really remember because they really don’t make a dent in the business. They’ve done terrible with those titles let me tell you! This Championship makes up for everything that has happened after PFP, and I will hold it with honor as only Miku Sakai possibly could. Firstly I want to bedazzle the shit out of it! Make it even more sparkly than it already is. Second, I want to keep up the tradition of defending the title in stipulation matches, and I also would like to dedicate this entire title run to my BFF Hikari. For she is with me in spirit, and would be right by my side in person if she could. The tradition of holding the Specialists Championship is already in full effect. Everywhere I go, whether it’s where I live or I’m just renting a room, is a heroes welcome. I show up to any town, and they show up with banners, throwing flowers, just celebrating the fact that I exist. Beth did everything she could to make this title not mean a damn thing, but I am restoring what was lost. Just the name Miku Sakai brings a certain amount of buzz into the air. People loved the Unified Tag Team Championship reign, and are ready for a spin off to the movie. I am an international superstar, and I’m ready to make my impact in more ways than anyone could even dream of. I will defend my title better than anyone ever could, because I am that good. I am transcending what it means to be the Specialists Champion ok? I am bringing it to the mainstream. The Today Show, fucking America’s Got Talent, The Voice, that stupid fucking masked singer shit, and the Avatar singing shit.. I am going to be wearing this title all over television EVERYWHERE. Something no one else could possibly do, because network television doesn’t give a fuck about of these hoes hanging around here. I am just a different breed of wrestler.. I don’t know, maybe I’ll fuck around and be in a movie while I’m at it fuck it.. A lister Miku Sakai will raise up the stakes of EAW globally because that’s what I do. But don’t worry EAW, you’re still my priority, and defending this title will remain on the top of my to do list.
Molly Waters: Well is there anyone in particular that you want to put the title on the line against?
(Miku puts her finger to her chin in a thinking sort of way)
Miku Sakai: Hmmmm welllll you know I do have an eye for talent. I do have someone in mind, and I would like that person to know that I am being oh so generous laying down the gauntlet. So.. oh.. The fuck is this?
(Before Miku gets to answer Mary S. Atlas walks into frame) She eyes Miku’s Specialists Championship, before smiling and greeting Miku)
Mary S Atlas: Miku! I just wanted to give you my congratulations on your win at Territorial Invasion! Dr Bethany Blue is definitely one of the best in EAW today, and you dethroning her sure does speak wonders about you! Very impressive.
(Miku is cringing at the very sight of Mary S Atlas)
Miku Sakai: Are you kidding? Are you FUCKING kidding me right now? Do you not see what’s happening here? Do you not see this bitch with a microphone, standing in front of a camera, with me holding my title in front of it as well? This is called an interview bitch, I know you never get them so they might be a foreign concept to you, but this is when people get to hear us talk! And if you do know what this is… Then why must you be so FUCKING rude! I have ONE first interviewer as Specialists Champion, and you couldn’t wait until AFTER the camera goes off?!! This is a fucking publicity stunt, and you can go fuck yourself. What’s your name again???
Molly Waters: Oh that’s Mary S. Atlas…
Mary S Atlas: She knows..
Miku Sakai: Mary S Atlas??? Why don’t you find an atlas, so you can find any longitude, and latitude anywhere in the world that’s not HERE! And what does the S stand for? STUPID??!! HAHAHA! No.. SHIT?!! HAHAHA… Alright, I could’ve done better with that, but the point still stands. You’re an asshole, I don’t need your congrulations, I know what I did was fucking amazing. And do you know why? Because Miku Sakai is fucking amazing at all times. I don’t miss..
(Mary just rolls her eyes)
Mary S Atlas: Why can’t you just accept that someone is actually giving you props? There’s no alternative motive here, I’m simply trying to give credit where it’s due. As someone that knows what it’s like to be doubted, it’s nice to see someone shut everyone up…
Miku Sakai: Oh did I shut everyone up Mary? If that was the case you wouldn’t be in front of me blabbering away for literally no reason! You haven’t shut up at all! And what’s funny about that is, you should be one of the first ones to shut up, and never talk to me again! Why do you think that I should feel honored about someone giving me props? Why did you automatically assume that I would be touched by you stating the fucking obvious? I don’t need that shit; I don’t need you belittling me! Especially coming from someone like you! Someone that can barely string a sentence together. So get the fuck away from me. You’re done trying to steal my camera time!
(Mary just puts her hands up in the air and backs away)
Mary S Altas: Alright, well I can see you’re in some sort of a mood. Didn’t want this to go the way that it did, seems quite unnecessary. But congrats again Miku..
(Mary looks at the Specialists Championship again, before walking away. The camera pans over to Miku who is rubbing her temples in order to ease the stress away)
Miku Sakai: Oh it’s very necessary!
(Mary is walking away, and too far to hear anything Miku is saying)
Miku Sakai: It is SOOOO necessary actually! I defend myself, I fight for myself, I won’t let anyone try to step on me! I won’t let anyone try to use me for fame!
(Miku lets out a little sigh, and turns her attention to Molly)
Miku Sakai: Ugh, for fucks sake she is so obsessed with me, I can’t take it. I’m going to have to look into getting another restraining order on someone. Like do these creeps know the burden they cause me when they just have their lives revolve around me? It’s mentally exhausting. I should’ve slapped her.. Yup, should’ve slapped her right on the cheeks, in the mouth, punched her in the eye! Then maybe she would think twice about being a stalker you know what I mean Molly?
Molly Waters: I-I don’t think she’s a stalker, I legit just think she was trying to congratulate you.
(Miku shakes her head)
Miku Sakai: Molly.. Molly, Molly, Molly.. Poor innocent Molly. You don’t understand how this shit works. When you’re a public figure, an icon, and biggest star in the world.. People don’t just “congratulate you”. They do things in order to get things from you; or so they can always be as close to you as possible. They freaks. Next thing you know I’m going to be waking up with her cutting my hair, and creating a Miku doll out of it.
Molly Waters: Do you think she’s really like that?
Miku Sakai: Everyone is like that…
(Miku gets close to Molly, nose to nose)
Miku Sakai: Every…. One…
(Miku boops Molly’s nose, and walks away. Camera fades to black)
(Voltage fades to a promotional ad for Dynasty’s House of Glass free-per-view.)
(As Voltage fades back to the arena, ‘Self Help Tape’ by Moses Sumney hits, and the crowd begins cheering loudly as the entrance music plays for the Voltage commissioner. After a few seconds, Captain Charisma himself begins to make his way out with a microphone in his hand. Captain Charisma doesn’t have the smile on his face that he usually would when greeting the Voltage crowd though, and instead looks a mix of both disappointed and pissed off as he walks down the ramp, making his way towards the ring.)
James Peters: The Voltage commissioner is making his way to the ring, but he doesn’t look happy at all. I obviously can’t blame him one bit. I genuinely can’t believe what we saw earlier in the night, even now.
Rich Russillo: I don’t think *anyone* can blame Captain Charisma for being upset. What New Eden did to Jamie O’Hara wasn’t okay, and there’s just no way they can be allowed to get away with it.
Persephone: Ehh. I think they did the world a favor by getting rid of Jamie. They’d be doing an even bigger one if they could fuck off too, but at this point I’m not getting my hopes up unless Captain Charisma’s out here to fire them.
(Captain Charisma enters the ring, and he doesn’t speak right away. He actually waits a few moments, like he has to collect his thoughts. The crowd quickly quiets down so they can hear what he has to say, and after shaking his head in disappointment, Captain Charisma finally begins speaking.)
Captain Charisma: I was ready to come out here and brag about Voltage’s performances at both Territorial Invasion and Clash of Kingdoms. We had the best performance across all three brands as we won every single brand versus brand match barring the Stadium Stampede, and I really wish I could celebrate that… But New Eden had other plans.
(The crowd boos as loud as they possibly can at the mention of New Eden, who was responsible for Jamie O’Hara’s injury.)
Captain Charisma: Jamie O’Hara has been taken to a local medical facility, and we’ll have more on the situation as details become available. Jamie should’ve been out here celebrating his own performance at Territorial Invasion after leading team Voltage to victory in Brand Warfare. He should’ve been here preparing for his own next step, and now that’s been taken away by the same group that I’ve given chance after chance to. It’s been taken away by the same three people that I’ve allowed to get away with WAY too much. New Eden’s been doing this shit since February, and I am sick and tired of putting up with this. I’m tired of being forced to treat these three like kids, even though that’s clearly what they are. Every single time things don’t go their way they do this. Every time they face one small setback they throw a temper tantrum and get someone like Jamie involved that doesn’t deserve it in the slightest. They did it with the Visual Prophet. They did it with SOSA Henderson. They threatened to powerbomb Malcolm Jones’ girlfriend off of the stage before taking his career from him. This NEEDS to stop.
Captain Charisma: I’ve had it up to here with those three. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a group of people that could be given ALL the opportunities they could ask for just to continuously pull shit like this. Drake King is the EAW Champion. Minerva is the National Elite Champion. Myles is Mr. Cash in the Vault. Pain for Pride ended with these three standing tall, and they STILL can’t get over themselves. They’re committed to this stupid goal and for some reason they think this means that they can just keep taking out everyone on the roster, but I’m not going to keep letting New Eden get away with whatever they want. I’m not going to let New Eden keep trying to run this show after I gave them the opportunity to do exactly that, just to come up short. It’s funny, they were the only Voltage team to lose from Territorial Invasion to Clash of Kingdoms, and do they even consider taking responsibility for their actions? No. Do they consider acknowledging that THEY were the ones that failed and not Jamie O’Hara? No. Instead they blame their failures on others, and they use those failures as an excuse to take out some of the best Elitists we have on our roster. I don’t fucking get it. I don’t get why New Eden is still doing this. It’s been nearly eight months of their bullshit. Eight months of New Eden running rampant, terrorizing the roster for no good reason. Eight months of them coming out here and making excuses for themselves, when-
(‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer)’ by Shiro SAGISU cuts Captain Charisma off, and the crowd immediately begins booing just as loud as they did when they first heard New Eden’s name mentioned. Soon after, all three members of New Eden begin walking out with microphones in their hands, also dragging along their Championships and Cash in the Vault briefcase. They stop at the stage, and they look just as unhappy as Captain Charisma is to see the three of them.)
Drake King: You can’t be serious. After Territorial Invasion, do you really think that YOU’RE in any position to come out here and complain just because Jamie O’Hara won’t be around for a while? You won. You got what you wanted. Voltage won EVERY SINGLE match at Territorial Invasion AND Clash of Kingdoms… Except the match New Eden was involved with. All across the board Voltage saw nothing but success, and the ONLY match where that wasn’t the case was the one we were competing in. You dangled that reward in front of us, forced us into that Stadium Stampede match BEFORE you even gave us that incentive, and we failed. We failed because you set us up to fail.
Captain Charisma: :skip: And why would I do that??
Drake King: Don’t play dumb. By the time the Stadium Stampede came around it didn’t matter what happened. Voltage already won all of the other brand versus brand matches and they weren’t going to lose the ones at Clash of Kingdoms either. You put us in that match because you wanted to see us fail. It’s as simple as that. You gave us an incentive, put up a prize that you KNEW we’d actually try and work for, just so you could see us embarrass ourselves. You’ve been doing this the entire time, and somehow you always try to make it seem like our actions in response is OUR fault! You did this! You always do this! Every single time we’ve come up short there’s always been some funny business involved, even going back to Shock Value when the likes of El Landerson and Malcolm Jones were just allowed to interfere with our matches without facing any real repercussions.
Minerva: I didn’t forget what you said back at Bloodsport. You said that we’d eventually screw ourselves over. You’ve been waiting to watch us fail since Bloodsport, and just to make your “victory” that much sweeter, you watched us fail knowing that had we succeeded, this brand would have been ours. You set us up, and now you’re here complaining because your own actions backfired on you. Jamie O’Hara, the Captain of Voltage’s Brand Warfare team, the man that brought Voltage the victory in the Brand Warfare match, now nowhere to be seen all because of you. You did this, and if you’re tired of us now, then you should’ve thought about what you were doing when you picked US to represent YOU at Territorial Invasion.
(The crowd continues booing, meanwhile Captain Charisma has a look of disbelief on his face.)
Captain Charisma: No, I didn’t come out here so you guys could start bitching again. You guys failed at Territorial Invasion because Dynasty had the better team. That’s YOUR fault. I shouldn’t even be surprised that you guys actually have the nerve to try and blame me for what happened, but that’s really not what matters here. You guys attacked and injured Jamie O’Hara. There is NO excuse for what you three did tonight.
Minerva: You led us to believe that Territorial Invasion was our night. You gave us an opportunity for absolutely nothing. You never wanted us to win, and why would you? If New Eden wins, you’re out of power for a month. If New Eden wins, we get to do all of the things you were afraid of us doing ever since we joined forces back in February. You were never willing to give up power, and you know it. You tried to make fools out of us, and now the Brand Warfare “team Captain” had to pay for it. This is what we’ve always dealt with, and you know it. You know that you never wanted to see us succeed. You know that you’d do anything just so you could see us fail, because our failure puts a smile on your face. Us failing at Territorial Invasion was the best possible outcome for you.
Drake King: And you know what happened just a week after Territorial Invasion? We were all just shoved into pointless Championship matches that shouldn’t have had to happen at all, let alone A WEEK after the Stadium Stampede match. How were we supposed to be ready for those matches after Territorial Invasion? How was Myles supposed to be ready for an opponent he didn’t even know he was facing until a week before the event? The fact that you allowed Ryan Adams to mess with us for weeks on end is sick, and someone that wanted us to win at Territorial Invasion wouldn’t let that happen. Someone that wanted us to win wouldn’t let anybody, let alone the chairman of the company to keep us distracted. You even messed with us just MOMENTS before our Stadium Stampede match, but you want us to believe that you didn’t just set us up to fail?
Minerva: Bullshit. We thought that this was our opportunity to finally take control of Voltage and make this show better than you ever could. Trusting you even the slightest bit was our biggest mistake.
(Captain Charisma doesn’t bother saying anything at this point, but the boos from the crowd does all of the talking for him. The fans clearly don’t want to hear anything New Eden has to say, but the trio continues to speak anyway.)
Drake King: You know what happened after the three of us competed just one week after having an opportunity like control over Voltage playfully dangled in front of us? Myles was concussed. Myles suffered a concussion in his match at Clash of Kingdoms, a match that was only confirmed MOMENTS BEFORE OUR STADIUM STAMPEDE MATCH, and I thought you’d know that as the commissioner of Voltage, but apparently you did it because for some reason you chose to make Myles compete this week too! Why should we feel sorry for Jamie O’Hara when you’re actively forcing Myles to compete with an injury? That’s not okay, and when you walked out here preparing to start this whole rant, I’m willing to bet that Myles’ concussion wasn’t even on your mind. You purposely embarrassed us. You don’t care about our well being in the slightest. You’re disgusting, and it’s so frustrating that THIS is what we have to deal with week after week.
Captain Charisma: If you’re so pissed off about it, why don’t you ask Myles why he signed a waiver saying he’ll compete tonight?
Drake King: :comeagain:
(Drake looks genuinely confused after hearing Captain Charisma, meanwhile the crowd gives a mixed reaction, not really knowing how to react. Drake turns towards Myles for answers, and finally Myles begins to speak.)
Myles: Territorial Invasion was bullshit. Clash of Kingdoms was bullshit, and at this point it shouldn’t even be argued whether or not Voltage is corrupt. We ALL know how corrupt this brand has been even if you’re too afraid to admit it. We’ve been exposing that for eight months now and we’re going to continue exposing it until that corruption is gone. With that being said, I love competing, and if there’s anything good that came out of Clash of Kingdoms, it’s that it reminded me of just how much I love competition. It reminded me that above all else, wrestling is meant to be about what goes on whenever two or more Elitists enter that ring and the bell rings. It reminded me of everything that’s great about this sport during a time where that greatness is usually hidden under a bunch of garbage like New Eden’s treatment over the past year. This isn’t one of those times though, because I don’t give a damn about this concussion. I’ve competed with far worse, and the only thing I’m focused on right now is carrying Justin Windgate in this dumbass tag team tournament and making sure Ryan and Alex don’t make it to the next round.
Drake King: …
(Drake looks surprised by Myles, clearly caught off guard by Myles’ choice to compete, and he turns towards Minerva.)
Drake King: Did you know about this?
(Minerva remains silent for a few seconds, before finally nodding her head.)
Minerva: I did.
(Drake still looks a bit taken aback, but finally he looks away.)
Drake King: I see.
Myles: Don’t overthink it. This isn’t the first time we’ve had to compete under inhumane circumstances, and as long as there’s people like Captain Charisma in charge it probably won’t be the last time. Now more than ever we need to stand united, and do exactly what we promised.
(Myles turns his attention to Captain Charisma, who’s still inside of the ring.)
Myles: Our quest to take over Voltage is far from over.
(‘My Brother (the Dragonslayer)’ hits, and the crowd immediately begins booing loudly as Myles drops his microphone before making his way to the back, as both Minerva and finally Drake follow along, leaving Captain Charisma inside of the ring.)
James Peters: :lupe: Well you heard it right there. New Eden isn’t done with trying to take over Voltage, but I’m not even sure what to think about what we saw tonight.
Rich Russillo: Honestly, I still just can’t get over what happened to Jamie. I hope he’s going to be okay.
Persephone: And I hope we never have to see Jamie nor New Eden again after tonight.
(The final shot is Captain Charisma in the ring, watching the stage as the three members of New Eden leave. From there, Voltage begins to fade from ringside.)
(Voltage fades to a commercial promoting the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home starring Tom Holland, who plays the best live action Spider-Man.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton standing in the middle of the ring, getting ready to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, this next match is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first….
(“Taste (Make it Shake)” by Aitch starts playing as Rebecca Blackwell enters the arena accompanied by Mary S. Atlas. The crowd is giving her a more positive than usual reaction.)
Bella Braxton: Making her way to the ring being accompanied by Mary S. Atlas!! Now residing in Hokkaido, Japan. She weighs 123 pounds. Here is the “Vixen of Ultraviolence”…REBECCA BLACKWELL!!
James Peters: The MaryBecca tag team is here as Rebecca Blackwell is in singles action tonight, but we shouldn’t be surprised that where Rebecca is, Mary S. Atlas will not be far behind.
Persephone: Oh how cute. They have bonded so well together. Damn, if it gets any sweeter, it will ruin my complexion.
Rich Russillo: Regardless, MaryBecca has proven themselves to be a pretty formidable duo. Their win loss record might not be the best, but they have given every team they have gone up against a fight. That includes the reigning World Champion and Universal Women’s Champion in Tag Team Turmoil Tournament.
(Rebecca enters the ring with Mary standing at ringside cheering her on as her theme subsides. After a moment of silence, “Ready to Die” by The Notorious B.I.G starts to play as Lucas Johnson enters the arena with a mixed but more negative reaction from the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT! He is from Long Island, New York! He weighs 210 pounds. He is the “Emperor of Violence” LUCAS JOHNSON!
James Peters: Just like the ladies before him, he also was part of a successful Divide and Conquer team. He wasn’t the last man standing, but he put up a hell of an effort at Territorial Invasion and now he is looking to keep going with a victory tonight in singles action.
Persephone: When will this guy give it up? He tries and he tries, but he only barely manages to stay above a pulse around here.
Rich Russillo: He’s a former New Breed Champion and he is continuously improving. I believe that this season will be the most successful season for Lucas Johnson.
(Lucas enters the ring and stands in his neutral corner as the ref checks both competitors.)
James Peters: Neither competitor looks completely impressed with the other, but we will find out who will come out victorious in just a moment. The ref calls for the bell and here we go.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell has rung and this match is underway. Both Rebecca and Lucas are looking to stake a bigger claim on Voltage after being part of their respective winning Divide and Conquer teams. The feeling out process is done and now they are locking up.
Persephone: They might have been part of the winning teams, but they were FAR from being the last people standing. Weren’t they both knocked out early? Doesn’t matter. They both suck. Anyways, the big loser Johnson took control over the other loser with a side headlock.
Rich Russillo: Kind as always, my queen. Johnson tries to take Rebecca down, but she is able to break free with some shots to the ribs to cause Lucas to let go of the hold. Rebecca tries to whip Lucas, but Lucas whips Rebecca into the ropes. Rebecca rebounds and Lucas goes for a back body drop, but REBECCA FLIPS AND LANDS ON HER FEET! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL COUNTER!
James Peters: It was, but as she turns around, LUCAS JOHNSON STARTS FIRING OFF JABS TO THE FACE OF REBECCA! One after the other and she is on spaghetti legs. Johnson fires off one more jab and sends Rebecca down, but she manages to stay up by hanging onto the top rope.
Rich Russillo: Lucas goes for a clothesline, but REBECCA DUCKS AND SENDS LUCAS OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR! WAIT! LUCAS MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON! Johnson goes for a right hand, but Rebecca blocks it and grabs Lucas by the hair AND SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! THAT’S GOT TO HURT!
Persephone: Why are you making such a big deal out of that? Lucas doesn’t have anything up there that can get damaged. Whatever! But Becca the Bimbo holds onto his head and tries to suplex him back into the ring. Like that will work.
James Peters: And it isn’t working. With an almost ninety pound weight advantage, it’ll be hard for Rebecca to overpower Lucas this early on in the match. Lucas fires back with a right hand to the side of the head as he gets back into the ring. Rebecca staggered and Lucas comes back and clobbers her with a huge clothesline. Blackwell down and Lucas mounts her and starts pounding more fists into the side of the head. The ref is telling Lucas to open up the hand, but he isn’t listening.
Referee: (off-mic) OPEN THE HAND, LUCAS! OPEN IT NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Rich Russillo: With the risk of disqualification, Lucas finally opens up the hand and drags Rebecca to her feet and drops her back down with a belly to belly suplex. Lucas drops a quick knee to the chest before going for the first cover of the match.
James Peters: Rebecca powers out at two. Lucas is staying on the attack as he flips Rebecca to her stomach. He pulls up Rebecca’s head and starts delivering uppercuts to the face and jaw of Rebecca Blackwell. Listen to Mary S. Atlas at ringside cheering on her tag team partner to get back in this match.
Persephone: Mary is being a delusional bitch. Her screaming like a stupid banshee is not going to help her get back in this match, so she should just shut the fuck up.
Rich Russillo: I hate to disagree with you, but you might be wrong. Rebecca somehow manages to get her legs free and she rolls away. Lucas was knocked off balance, but when he gets back to his feet, HE IS MET WITH A HUGE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW OF LUCAS JOHNSON! JOHNSON BACK TO HIS KNEES AND BLACKWELL DELIVERS A BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK TO THE FACE AND IT SENDS LUCAS THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE FLOOR!
James Peters: Lucas is stunned at what just happened and he does not look happy. Lucas gets a knee on the apron to get back in the ring. He grabs onto the middle rope before getting off the apron and waving off Rebecca.
Lucas Johnson: (off-mic) FUCK THIS SHIT! YOU AREN’T WORTH MY TIME! I’M OUTTA HERE!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Lucas is done wasting his time with Rebecca Blackwell and he is heading back to the locker room. What the hell is he doing? He makes his way back to the ramp, BUT MARY S. ATLAS IS STANDING IN HIS WAY! LUCAS AND MARY ARE YELLING AT EACH OTHER! BUT HERE COMES REBECCA! SHE READY TO ATTACK, BUT LUCAS SOMEHOW FELT IT COMING! LUCAS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND REBECCA ALMOST HITS MARY!!
Persephone: Dumb bitches with a miscue! Big shocker there!
James Peters: Now Lucas is looking to retake the advantage by grabbing Rebecca’s head AND DELIVERING A NECKBREAKER ON THE RAMP! THEY BOTH TOOK DAMAGE FROM THAT, BUT REBECCA TOOK THE BLUNT OF IT!
Persephone: What an idiot! Why would he do something like that with the referee doing their count? Speaking of count, the referee has reached six. They need to count faster so we can end this damn match so I can get back to doing something better. Anything better.
Rich Russillo: Johnson back to his feet as he drags Rebecca back to the ring as she is thrown back in at eight. Lucas back in the ring at nine as he pulls Rebecca towards a corner. Lucas climbs to the second rope and jumps. LUCAS LOOKING FOR THE SWAGGER BOMB!!
James Peters: KNEES UP! REBECCA GOT THE KNEES UP! LUCAS HOLDING HIS RIBS AS REBECCA SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET! Rebecca takes a deep breath and runs for the attack! STO! REBECCA WITH A RUNNING STO ON LUCAS! LUCAS IS DOWN AS REBECCA CRAWLS TO THE COVER!!
Persephone: Why the fuck would Lucas kick out? We could have ended this match and made everybody happier. Especially me! This is going to be a long night if these dumbasses are so determined. I hate it! Now Bimbo Becca is kicking Lucas right in the ribs. It isn’t going to make me happy unless she breaks a rib or busts him open. WE NEED THE BLOOD!!
Rich Russillo: Lucas Johnson on his knees as Rebecca hits the ropes. She is going for a shining wizard, but Lucas manages to duck AND COUNTER IT INTO AN ANKLE LOCK!! LUCAS DRAGS REBECCA TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND SINCHES IN THE HOLD!! WILL THE ANKLE LOCK OUT OF NOWHERE CAUSE BLACKWELL TO SUBMIT?
James Peters: Lucas Johnson has had a lot of MMA training in his career, so even though Lucas has not worked on the legs of Blackwell, there is still decent damage being done to the ankle of Rebecca.
Persephone: Seriously like nobody cares about him, her, the ankle lock, or this match! Just break her ankle and be done with it! Don’t be a little bitch and get the job done!
Rich Russillo: I think he is because the pain on Rebecca’s face is really starting to show as she is trying to drag herself to the ropes, but Lucas is just dragging her back. LOOK AT THIS!! AS LUCAS DRAGS HER BACK, SHE LOCKS HER LEG AROUND THE WAIST OF LUCAS AND CATCHES HIM IN A VICTORY ROLL! LUCAS’ SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
James Peters: LUCAS REVERSES! LUCAS REVERSES THE PIN AND NOW IT’S REBECCA WHO IS IN TROUBLE!
Persephone: Becca Bimbo kicks out. Good for her. She can actually do something. Now both dumbasses are trying to get back to their feet. I mean how in the world can these two losers get a match to last this long!
Rich Russillo: Because they are both extremely determined competitors looking to boost their status on Voltage and they are both doing a great job of it. Lucas is back to his feet first as Rebecca was trying to work away some of the damage done from the ankle lock. Lucas with a front facelock going for a DDT, but Rebecca trying to counter with a Northern Lights Suplex. LUCAS UP BUT IT LOOKED LIKE REBECCA’S ANKLE BUCKLED. ANKLE MIGHT BE A LITTLE TENDER! SHE COULDN’T FULLY EXECUTE THE SUPLEX!! LUCAS GETS FREE AND LANDS BEHIND HER AND HITS A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! BLACKWELL CRASH LANDS ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD!!
James Peters: Lucas is dragging Rebecca back to the corner and this time Lucas is going to the top rope to fly. It didn’t work the first time around with the swagger bomb earlier, but maybe he’ll have better luck this time around. LUCAS JOHNSON WITH THE MOONSAULT!!
Rich Russillo: BUT IT DIDN’T CONNECT!! SOMEHOW REBECCA BLACKWELL MAKES IT TO HER FEET AND COUNTERS WITH AIR BLACKWELL AS LUCAS WAS FINISHING THE ROTATION FOR THE MOONSAULT! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CATCHES LUCAS RIGHT UNDER THE CHIN AND HE CRASHES AND BURNS TO THE MAT. GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FOR REBECCA AS SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: LUCAS KICKS OUT AT TWO!! WITH THE UGLY LANDING THAT HE HAD, I WAS NOT EXPECTING HIM TO KICK OUT WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE HE LANDED ON HIS NECK! BUT THIS MAN IS NOT GOING TO GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT! HE IS GOING TO DO ANYTHING HE CAN TO WIN THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Rebecca Blackwell staying on the attack and she is bringing Lucas Johnson back to his feet. He is still a little wobbly after his landing just seconds ago. Blackwell brings her hand back. She is looking to hit From London, With Love. Her version of the Spinning Back Fist. SHE LOADS UP AND SWINGS!! HERE COMES THE PITCH! IF SHE HITS THIS, IT COULD BE OVER!!
Persephone: HA! DUMB BITCH SWINGS AND MISSES!! Lucas ducks the fist and he counters with a roundhouse kick that hits Becca Bimbo in the temple. It isn’t going to do any good because she doesn’t have anything up there to hurt, stupid! Either way, she’s loonier than normal and down on the mat.
James Peters: NOW LUCAS JOHNSON DRAGS BLACKWELL BACK TO THE CORNER. NOW LUCAS GOES TO THE TOP ROPE AND HE IS READY TO FLY AGAIN!! HE IS LOOKING TO FINISH THIS MATCH FOR GOOD!! THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM I GUESS! HERE HE GOES AND HE HITS THE RED ARROW!! BEAUTIFUL CORKSCREW MANEUVER AS THE RED ARROW HITS THE BULLSEYE! HE GOT ALL OF IT! LUCAS JOHNSON GOES FOR THE COVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!!
Rich Russillo: REBECCA KICKS OUT, BUT BOY WAS THAT A CLOSE CALL!! WHAT STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION BY THIS YOUNG WOMAN!! SHE IS NOT GOING TO LOSE THAT EASILY! LUCAS DOES NOT LOOK PLEASED THAT REBECCA KICKED OUT OF THE RED ARROW!
Persephone: NOOOOOO! What is going on? Mary S. Atlas is on the ring apron and distracting the referee from doing their job for once! What the hell is that stupid bimbo doing on the apron? Somebody arrest her!
Rich Russillo: It looks like she is trying to help her tag team partner get a small breather and stay in this match. MaryBecca standing united tonight.
Persephone: United my ass! Why would she go and do something like that? We were three seconds away from this match being over and that blonde bitch screwed everything up. I hate her. I hate Lucas. I hate everybody in this match! To make it even worse, Lucas is being an even bigger moron and lets the pin go! Now he’s jaw jacking with Mary on the apron. DON’T BE STUPID!! Get in there and finish her off! Don’t worry about the ho on the apron. END THIS THING!
James Peters: BY USING MARY’S DISTRACTION IN HER FAVOR, LUCAS IS ARGUING WITH MARY AND FORGETTING ABOUT HIS OPPONENT FOR THE TIME BEING! HE HASN’T NOTICED THAT REBECCA HAS MADE IT BACK TO HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: AS REBECCA COMES BEHIND AND HITS DAVEY JONES’ LOCKER! WHAT A BULLHAMMER ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! LUCAS FALLS LIKE A STONE STATUE!! THIS MATCH COULD BE OVER! REBECCA GOES FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: WAIT! WHAT’S GOING ON? THE REF HAS STOPPED THE COUNT!
Persephone: Everybody died because of boredom. I don’t blame them. I’m almost there myself! Please put me out of my misery!
Rich Russillo: It’s not that! Mary just got pulled off the apron by somebody, but who is it? Whoever it is, they are arguing big time with Mary and they do not sound happy. We can hear the argument all the way over here!.
James Peters: How can you not tell by the sound of her voice? IT’S KENSI! KENSI FROM DYNASTY! SHE’S THE TAG PARTNER OF LISA WREN! You remember that Lisa Wren was supposed to be in the Divide and Conquer match at Clash of Kingdoms, but she was attacked by MaryBecca and ultimately removed from the match.
Persephone: Now she’s here defending the honor of her friend or tag partner or whatever the hell they call each other. How noble of that blonde skank! Damn, makes me want to barf!
Rich Russillo: But this extra distraction is now proving to be detrimental for Rebecca Blackwell! It was working up until Kensi showed up and threw a wrench into the plan with her presence.
James Peters: LOOK NOW! IT’S MORE THAN JUST WORDS NOW! A SLAP TO THE FACE BY MARY AND NOW WE HAVE A BRAWL ON THE OUTSIDE!! MARY AND KENSI ARE FIGHTING AT RINGSIDE! THE REFEREE DISTRACTED WITH WHAT’S GOING ON!! THEY EXIT THE RING AND TRY TO BREAK UP THE FIGHT BETWEEN THE TWO LADIES! NOW REBECCA FIGURES OUT WHAT’S GOING ON AND IS YELLING AT KENSI FROM THE ROPES!
Rich Russillo: LOOK WHO IS COMING OUT FROM UNDER THE RING!! KENSI DID NOT COME TO VOLTAGE ALONE! SPEAKING OF TAG TEAM PARTNERS! IT’S LISA WREN!! AS WE JUST SAID, LISA WREN WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE DIVIDE AND CONQUER MATCH THANKS TO MARYBECCA!! LISA DOES NOT LOOK HAPPY AS SHE GETS IN THE RING WITH REVENGE NO DOUBTEDLY ON HER MIND!! THE REF IS STILL DISTRACTED WITH KENSI AND MARY FIGHTING ON THE OUTSIDE!! LISA FORCIBLY TURNS REBECCA AROUND CATCHES HER WITH A PUNCH TO THE HEAD AND A PUNCH TO THE MOUTH!! THAT COULD HAVE BEEN A KNOCKOUT SHOT!
James Peters: REBECCA DAZED AFTER THAT SHOT AS LISA ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!! SHE NEEDS TO BE CAREFUL BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T REALIZE THAT LUCAS IS BACK TO HIS FEET! SHE TURNS AROUND AND SHE TURNS RIGHT INTO THE LIGHTSWITCH!! CLAYMORE KICK CONNECTS!! LUCAS JOHNSON GOT ALL OFF THAT AND YOU COULD SEE REBECCA’S HEAD SNAP BACK! REBECCA LOOKS COMPLETELY KNOCKED OUT! NO DOUBT THAT THE LIGHTSWITCH TURNED OFF REBECCA’S LIGHTS FOR THE NIGHT! LUCAS JOHNSON GOES FOR THE COVER!! THE REFEREE SEES IT AND SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING! TAKE YOUR TIME REF! IT’S NOT LIKE WE DON’T ALREADY KNOW THIS IS GOING TO END! LUCAS JOHNSON IS GOING TO STEAL ONE TONIGHT!
Rich Russillo: REF CAN COUNT TO ONE HUNDRED IF THEY WANT! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Ready to Die” starts playing again as Lucas rolls off of Rebecca and the referee raises his hand in victory as Mary rolls in the ring and checks on Rebecca.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…LUCAS JOHNSON!
James Peters: Both Lucas and Rebecca had a hell of a fight, but unfortunately for Rebecca, Lucas Johnson was able to steal one thanks to the interference of Kensi and Lisa Wren. Not to take away from the performance of Lucas or Rebecca. They both did an amazing job. Either way, congrats to Lucas Johnson on his victory here tonight.
(As Lucas rolls out of the ring, Lisa and Kensi both roll back into the ring and stalk behind Mary and Rebecca.)
Rich Russillo: They need to look behind them. This isn’t going to be good. Mary and Rebecca need to get out of the ring and fast!
Persephone: SHUT UP! Let this happen. The bloodier, the better!
(Seconds later, Kensi and Lisa blindside MaryBecca and start completely pummeling them.)
James Peters: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ABOUT? LISA AND KENSI ARE ANNIHILATING MARYBECCA IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: One thing on their mind: REVENGE! Lisa was taken out of Clash of Kingdoms thanks to MaryBecca. Now Lisa and Kensi are pissed and want to give these ladies what’s coming to them.
(Kensi has a foot on the back of Mary’s neck as Lisa picks up Rebecca, hooks her leg, and sets her up.)
James Peters: THIS IS ENOUGH! YOU’VE DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE, LISA! SHE ALREADY COST REBECCA HER MATCH AND NOW SHE WANTS TO ADD AN EXCLAMATION POINT! LISA SWINGS AND HITS THE RELEASE FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX. That was almost a modified neckbreaker right there. REBECCA’S NECK HAS GOT TO BE HURT! NOW WHAT ARE THEY DOING?
(With Rebecca out of the picture, Kensi asks Lisa to pick up Mary and finish the job.)
Rich Russillo: Now it’s time for Kensi to have a little fun. She kisses her fist and reels back and…POW! THAT IS THE $WAG $HOT! WHAT A LEFT HOOK FROM KENSI AND MARY IS OUT ON HER FEET! LISA DROPS MARY LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES. IF THEIR GOAL WAS TO MAKE A STATEMENT HERE TONIGHT, THEY CERTAINLY DID! THEY HAVE LEFT MARYBECCA LAYING!
(Lisa and Kensi smile at the job they did and exit the ring to loud and roaring boos and the medical team and referees come to check on Mary and Rebecca.)
Persephone: Yeah yeah. They caused trouble. What else is new? Now those two bitches can go back to Dynasty and shit up their show. Now let’s get on with this horrible night.
James Peters: I will say this. Whatever is brewing between these four ladies is far from over, especially with that attack.
(Lisa and Kensi stand at the top of the ramp with smirks on their faces watching MaryBecca get checked on as the camera cuts elsewhere.)
(Voltage fades to the backstage area of the Motorpoint Arena. Immediately, the camera shows a figure storming through the backstage area with a mannerism that makes it look like he could strangle the nearest person that slights him. Multiple people are seen having conversations throughout the halls of the backstage area, but immediately the person shoves them all out of the way while he makes his way to his unknown destination. Multiple staff members give him weird looks filled with mostly concern but the person completely ignores them.)
(Meanwhile, while that’s all happening, the camera cuts over to another part of the backstage area which leaves the crowd to absolutely erupt into boos. Holly Arrow is seen stepping in front of a door, which reads in bold words “CAPTAIN CHARISMA – VOLTAGE COMMISSIONER.” Presuming it to be the office of the EAW Hall of Famer. There’s a sign on there that reads “Do Not Disturb,” but nobody’s going to pay much mind to it in the first place, Holly is absolutely no different. She takes a moment to stand in front of the door, a bright smile on her face while she nods, beginning to open the door before…)
???: Move the fuck out of the way! Fucking bozo…
(The crowd then begins to cheer immediately, knowing exactly who’s voice that is from a mile away. Chris Elite is seen nearly knocking over Holly Arrow, moving her out of the way like she isn’t even there. while he turns around and immediately kicks open the door of Captain Charisma’s office. Holly looks absolutely offended, but she closes her eyes and pretends to pay no mind to it to not cause any sort of conflict. Inside, Captain Charisma is just minding his business. It’s always a stressful job running a show that can always turn on a whim, but Captain Charisma manages to do his job to perfection :wow:. Here, he’s minding his business, finally getting a moment of quiet. So while he does, he’s taking the time to read a book. He has reading glasses on his face while he turns the page curiously. All of that is thrown out of the window when Chris abruptly barges in. He’s startled for a moment, shutting the book and immediately sitting up.)
Chris Elite: The fuck are you doing? Don’t you have something better to do, like I don’t know… FIGURING OUT WHAT TO DO ABOUT THIS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT?! In case you didn’t realize, after what that stupid circle jerk group did earlier in the night, attacking MY fucking partner of all people, the Blicky Roos happen to be down a member. Which, and I hate to be captain obvious here, leaves my spot in the tournament in jeopardy. The Blicky Roos were scheduled to face Donovan Duke and Minerva next, and I’ll be fucking damned if New Eden costs me anything else on Voltage, because I’m already pissed off with the amount of things they’ve already done to me. So you better give me a fucking solution quick or you’re not going to hear the end of this.
(Captain Charisma’s eyes widen for a moment, definitely not expecting Chris to go on such a rant immediately, he also doesn’t seem to be having it seeing as he was in the middle of his book. Chris’s hands slam against his desk while Captain Charisma holds his hands up. He takes a deep breath, taking his reading glasses off before pushing away from the desk and standing up from his office chair.)
Captain Charisma: I understand your concern, Chris. But it’s not like I haven’t been thinking about this, because this is definitely a concern that should be handled accordingly. Believe me, I no doubt have had my hands tied when it comes to making what I can out of this situation and coming to a conclusion with everything that I’ve gathered. And I can tell you right now, your replacement partner will be selected-
Chris Elite: Nah, fuck your stupid ass lottery. I’m not about to get some dumbass partner who I’m going to have to carry all the way to the Unified Tag Team Championships, I’ve had enough of that already. If there’s going to be a replacement for Jamie? Then imma be the one to decide who the fuck it is. And don’t fucking test me when it comes to it because I have a Gawd Contract and I won’t be afraid to use it, it’s the least you can do after everything that’s happened.
(Captain Charisma sighs after being so rudely interrupted. He rolls his eyes which leaves Chris somewhat offended. The Voltage Commissioner is in no mood to argue with the Hall of Famer, so for the most part, he holds his hand up in innocence while nodding his head.)
Captain Charisma: That is fine, you can choose your own partner-
???: BORK! BORK! BORK!
Captain Charisma: :francis:!!!
(Chris in an instant, whips his head to the side to see where the commotion is coming from, but it should be obvious at this point where it is coming from to begin with. It’s none other than Josh the dog in a crate stashed away in a crate stuffed in the corner of Captain Charisma’s office.)
Chris Elite: :wtf: I thought that little shit was thrown in the crowd??? How the fuck, actually, why the fuck is he back here?
Captain Charisma: Well, the Saudi Royal Family confiscated the dog and had him shipped here to return to Jake, how generous of them… except the problem is, Jake isn’t present in Wales tonight. He’s at home, recovering after the match he had against Drake King in Kuwait. So.. I was given this.
(Captain Charisma opens his drawer and takes out an envelope, it reads “To: Captain Charisma, somewhere in Wales. From: Your former future World Champion.” He begrudgingly opens the note and shows the paper to Chris.)
(“Dear Capitán Carisma, I’m srry this came on such short notice, but unfortunately I am unable to show up to Voltage this week in Wales. After my match with white Jesus I sustained some serious injuries. I need time to cope after this crushing defeat and ultimately, I have decided to take the week off. I am not like the rest of your Elitists, I cannot compete a week after I nearly die. Plz excuse me, I will be there next week I promise. XoXoXo loves and kisses ilyily your favorite Voltage Elitist: Jake Smith.”)
Chris Elite: :roman: Bro got kicked in the face and acts like he’s in a coma meanwhile I got blown up and I’m still here.
Captain Charisma: :francis: Don’t act like I expected him here in the first place. He’s been acting way too nice this past week too, I don’t want to handle or question it. But I assume, I have to dog sit Josh for the next week. It’s not like I can abandon him, because I will not hear the end of the obnoxious rambling from his owner.
Chris Elite: Well he’s fucking annoying, shit I’ll take him right now and throw him into the crowd tonight. He’s interrupting the time I need to think about who my partner is going to be. 🤔
Captain Charisma: If you don’t have an idea, I can happily draw from the lottery and get you your partner ASAP.
Chris Elite: I’M NOT LETTING YOU CHOOSE SHANE GATES AS MY PARTNER, DAMN!
Captain Charisma: :mjcry: I enjoy the drama.
Chris Elite: Anyways-
???: IS THIS MY PRIZE?!?!?!
Chris Elite: OH MY FUCKING GOD!
(Chris looks to have absolutely snapped while he turns around to see who that’s coming from, which the camera shows to be the aforementioned Holly Arrow who makes her way into the office and sees Josh into the crate. She quickly runs over and lets him loose while Josh hobbles forward and hops into the arms of Holly while both of them have a nice little happy reunion with one another.)
Holly Arrow: I was sooo concerned 😣😣😣!!! I’m so glad you’re okay!
Chris Elite: Y’all just love to dickeat- wait…
(Chris looks at Josh, before looking back at Holly. He then looks back at Josh, then back at Holly. Back at Josh, then back at Holly. While it’s true, he is somewhat annoyed at the simultaneously irritating interruptions of his conversation with Captain Charisma, the Voltage Commissioner possibly sharing the same sentiments seeing as he wants to get back to his book, hesuddenly gets an idea, looking back at Captain Charisma with a smirk on his face while the Voltage Commissioner raises an eyebrow.)
Chris Elite: If you could excuse me for a moment, I need to make a phone call… :mjgrin:
Captain Charisma: Okay…?
(Chris turns around and pulls out his phone, making his way out of the office putting his phone to his ear. Meanwhile, Holly is still cooing over Josh. Josh wags his tail happily, looking at Holly with a beaming expression. Finally, Holly then turns to Captain Charisma with a bright smile on her face full of enthusiasm.)
Holly Arrow: This is the best prize ever!
Captain Charisma: Well, I’m glad you’re happy, Holly. But Josh isn’t your prize, though you can happily take him off my hands for the week. Instead, I have something much better in mind for you when it comes to your Divide & Conquer victory in Kuwait.
(Holly raises an eyebrow, while she scoops Josh off the ground and cradles him in her arms. She makes her way towards Captain Charisma, looking at the door to his office wide open while the Voltage Commissioner rubs his temple.)
Holly Arrow: Tough job, huh?
Captain Charisma: Been through worse, I’m not new to any of this. Believe me, it’s much better than New Eden seizing control of the entire Voltage brand, though I have my own idea of how it would’ve turned out :mjgrin:. But nonetheless, that’s not why we’re here. I’d like to talk about your amazing effort in Kuwait, really, the Voltage team as a whole for coming together and doing their best after Hikari went down with a nasty injury. But I think we can agree, most importantly, you won the whole thing. The competition was tough and obviously the technical handicap didn’t make it any easier, but you managed to pull through regardless and come out on top. And that doesn’t fall on deaf ears, because I have most importantly taken that into great consideration when it comes to determining what your reward is going to be-
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK!
(Translation: Just reveal it, damn. Old man.)
Holly Arrow: :roman:
Captain Charisma: :whoa: Let’s tone it down here. I’m just trying to build it up for suspense. It leads me to my point, and this is going to be possibly one of the biggest moments of your career. On the go home show to Wicked Games, the October 24th episode of Voltage, Holly Arrow will be in action going up against… MS. EXTREME!
Holly Arrow: :oh:
Captain Charisma: WITH THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE!
Holly Arrow: :oh:!!!
(Holly is a bit stunned for a moment there, her eyes fluttering while Josh looks at her with an amped up look on his little Pomeranian face. It obviously takes her a moment to process this, seeing as this is a very big deal for her. But it isn’t long after that she nods her head quickly.)
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK!
(Translation: Yessir! 🗣🗣🗣 You go girl! Slay!!! Ladies and gentlemen, your new Universal Women’s Champion! HOLLY ARROW!!!!!!! She bout to kill that adopted bih!)
Holly Arrow: Woah, that is amazing… I’m ready, yeah I’m ready. I appreciate you so much for this opportunity Captain Charisma, this is probably… the biggest match of my career, yeah it is. I’m more than ready for the challenge ahead and I know this is something I won’t let you down with! These types of opportunities don’t come so easily. I promise you, heading into Wicked Games I will be your Universal Women’s Champion!
Captain Charisma: :wow: That’s the spirit, win or lose nobody on the Voltage roster manages to let me down. Keep your head high and keep that spirit going, even though this is already a big opportunity as is, there is so much you can do as a Voltage competitor and there are big things ahead for you.
Holly Arrow: :salute: Thank you so much! Come on Josh, let’s go!
Josh: BORK! BORK! BORK!
(Translation: Plz feed me, the old man hasn’t fed me in hours.)
(Holly puts Josh on the ground before taking his beat up leash, both of them walk out happily while Captain Charisma sighs. He takes a seat while dimming down the lights, he goes back to reading peacefully just like he did at the start, knowing that he’s finally going to get some quiet time, at least for the time being. It’s the last shot seen before ultimately, Voltage fades elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR- BACKSTAGE EARLIER TONIGHT]
(The camera cuts to somewhere backstage in a darker part of the Motorpoint Arena trying to find somebody. It doesn’t take them very long to find who they are looking for because the guy is wearing a light up jacket. Not much later, we see Jay Jerry Johnson sitting on a crate taping his wrists and getting prepared for his triple threat match later on in the evening. Seconds later, he looks up and finally catches the camera. He stops what he is doing and gets ready to speak.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: Why am I not surprised that you would go and seek me out just to get a few words from someone as awesome as myself? That’s no surprise right there. Consider it lucky for you guys that I do have a few things that I have really been wanting to talk about and I would love to tell the world what exactly has been on my mind.
(Jay rolls his eyes and puts his wrist tape over to the side before adjusting himself so that he is directly facing the camera before he starts speaking.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that you want to know about Territorial Invasion. Just like everybody else has been asking me. I think the best part of the whole event for me was catching everybody completely off guard when I came out on Showdown and made myself the final member of the Dynasty and Showdown team. The look on Team Voltage’s faces was priceless. The look of hurt. The look of confusion. The look of anger. It took everything within my power to not bust out laughing.
Jay Jerry Johnson: It wasn’t just those assholes on Team Voltage, either. There were plenty of people in the crowd who had a look of shock and stupidity written across their face. I loved it. The thought of pulling the wool over everybody’s eyes still brings a smile to my face. Nobody sure as hell didn’t see that one coming.
(Jay starts laughing for a moment before calming himself down and continuing with what he has to say.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: Why exactly did I “turn my back” against my own brand to join a team that was only supposed to be made up of people from the other two brands? I think I have said this already, but I wanted to get noticed and get people talking about me. I think I succeeded in that department.
Jay Jerry Johnson: As for the actual Divide and Conquer match, to say that it went my way would be a very big stretch. How embarrassing for them. Fuck, I was the only person who managed to eliminate anybody on the other team which put an end to any chance of a clean sweep. Everyone saw how big of a clusterfuck our team was. Voltage took us out one after another until I was the last person left on our team. I was looking at a four to one deficit that would have sent many others turning and running away because they didn’t think they could do it. But did I give up and wimp out?
(Jay smirks as he wiggles his finger and shakes his head in the negative.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: HELL FUCKING NO! I am no wimp or loser. I went in there and knew exactly what I had to do. I had to work my ass off if I even wanted to stand a chance in the match. I was gonna be some bitch and lay down when things aren’t going my way. I went into that ring and I was ready to fight.
Jay Jerry Johnson: That is exactly what I did! It didn’t take me very long to make my stance in the match and show that I just won’t lay down and die. That fucking hothead Kirk Redwood tried to take all the glory for himself and what did I do to him? I sent that asshole packing and out of the match. That’s what he deserved. Then I took out Lucas Johnson from the match before I finally fell to Alex Myers. Let me tell you that losing to him fucking sucked.
Jay Jerry Johnson: Yeah, Territorial Invasion didn’t completely go my way, I know damn well that I did an amazing job. Do you fuckers even realize that was the source of all three of the eliminations our team got in that match. If it wasn’t for me, our team would have looked like even bigger losers than before. I went further than people thought I could. You would think that even with a breakout performance like mine that people would begin to respect me. THEY STILL DON’T! I did what I had to do to boost my value in EAW and people are doing is continuing to fucking me a fucking traitor because of what I did.
(Jay pulls a piece of paper out of his jacket pocket and he unfolds it. When he shows the paper to the camera, you can see the words “MATCH CONTRACT” printed in large red letters across the top.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: If I’m such a damn traitor to my brand, why the hell do I have this? That’s right. The Voltage Commissioner himself looked past what I did in “betrayal” and looked more towards what I did as an Elitist. I got the attention of the most important guy on Voltage. I impressed our Captain Charisma so much that he rewarded me for my efforts.
Jay Jerry Johnson: Captain Charisma has given me another chance to show what I can do next week thanks to this little match contract. What exactly does this contract give me? I’ll tell you. Next week on Voltage, I get one more chance to wrestle against my oldest, closest, and best friend Kirk Redwood. It won’t be just any regular match. On the contrary!
(Jay points in the middle of the front page, where there are a few bolded words.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: This match will be a NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH! That’s right! I get the opportunity to get as physical and as vicious as I want against that pathetic dumbass and no damn referee can stop me. The thought of beating the shit out of Kirk Redwood once again would be plenty enough for me, but this match has a little bit more at stake than just me winning again.
Jay Jerry Johnson: What is it exactly? Next week, the winner of our no disqualification match will have earned themself a future match with the National Elite Championship on the line. I wish it could have been someone other than Kirk Redwood because I was hoping for a little bit of a challenge.
Jay Jerry Johnson: I mean seriously. This waste of space once again? Fine by me. I kind of enjoy beating the crap out of him over and over again and again. It’s getting to be very fun for me. Regardless it does not matter how much of a shot Kirk thinks he has at winning next week, this match is already MINE! I guarantee nothing less than a dominating victory for myself as I become Number One Contender and walk on towards the National Elite Championship.
(Jay folds up the contract and puts it back in his jacket pocket.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: It might not seem a lot for some people around here, but for me, it puts me one match away from my first ever title match in EAW. I can already picture that National Elite Championship around my waist. It might be a little soon to say this, but the National Elite Champion should consider themself on notice because there is no way I am losing next week.
Jay Jerry Johnson: Kirk, no matter what kind of preparation you do for next week, let me tell you that it won’t do you any good. You and I both know that you can’t beat me. I pinned and defeated you on Voltage a few weeks ago. Then I was the one who eliminated you from the Divide and Conquer match. Shit, I am pretty sure that hell will freeze over before you can beat me in any type of match.
(Jay smirks and rolls his eyes at the thought of Kirk even coming remotely close to beating him in any type of match.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: Even though you have virtually no shot of winning this match, I will go ahead and give you a little piece of advice to help you out. You should really watch your back and watch what you say. Because if you aren’t careful and I get my way, our no disqualification will be your last match. Period.
(Jay looks into the camera intently with the purpose and goal of next week in mind before he gets off the crate and shoves the camera before he walks away as the scene fades to black.)
(The camera fades back to ringside, where Bella Braxton is seen with a microphone.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(‘Invincible’ by Pop Smoke blasts through the speakers to a loud mixed reaction from the crowd. Chris Elite makes his way out to the stage, looking totally confident. He starts making his way to the ring, keeping the confidence on his face totally clear.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM BROOKLYN, NY… WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS… ‘GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS…’ CHRRRRISSSSS… ELLLLLIITTTTEEEEEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: Here comes one of the not just the winners of Brand Warfare, but also the sole survivors.
Rich Russillo: Chris Elite did absolutely fantastic at Territorial Invasion. He was one of the main reasons Team Voltage won the whole thing, and was, indeed, able to put his differences aside with anyone else on Team Voltage, in order to achieve a common goal, and he just did that. Now, he has the chance to keep his momentum increasing if he could secure another victory tonight.
Persephone: Ehhhh… honestly, all he did was eliminate nobodies. He didn’t do anything important at this point, and certainly, that bald bitch is someone that didn’t really play a role in Team Voltage’s victory. All the real eliminations were by Jamie O’Hara. However, if Rex McAllister was on the team instead of Ryan Wilson or Jake Smith, he would have eliminated everyone on his own. But… :francis: it is what it is.
(As Chris Elite is in the ring, ‘T.D Visualizer’ by Lil Yachty, Tierra Whack ft. A$AP Rocky, Tyler, The Creator replaces ‘Invincible’ as the crowd gives another mixed reaction to Jay Jerry Johnson, who makes his way out to the stage, looking totally focused on the match ahead of him. He stares down Chris Elite, who is in the ring, before starting to make his way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM CHICAGO, ILLINOIS… WEIGHING IN AT 198 POUNDS… ‘CHARISMATIC ARTIST’… JAAAAYYY… JEEEERRRRRYYYYYYYY… JOOOOOOOOHHHNSOOOOOOOONNN!!!!
James Peters: Ever since his arrival, this guy has been making an impact. Starting off with his debut match victory over another great new talent in Kirk Redwood, and more recently, his AMAZING performance at Territorial Invasion in the Divide & Conquer match. Yes, it wasn’t enough to secure the victory for him, but it doesn’t change the fact that he did great and that no matter what the outcome was, he has a huge wave of momentum going.
Rich Russillo: He for sure has. And tonight, he has the chance to gain the hell of a bounce back in case he could pick up a victory over a Hall of Famer and the eventual winner of the Divide & Conquer himself, Donovan Duke.
Persephone: I would be lying to myself if I said that I was invested in the slightest, but if he is willing to end this match that is going to be boring anyway as soon as possible, then I’m rooting for him :drakelike:.
(‘The Outsiders’ by Eric Church replaces ‘T.D Visualizer’ as the crowd gives a nice pop to Donovan Duke. He makes his way out to the stage, looking completely fired up, and having a huge smile on his face. He stares at the whole crowd, before staring at his opponents who are in the ring. After that, he nods his head, as he starts making his way to the ring, looking absolutely ready.)
James Peters: Here comes Mr. 24/7 and the winner of the Divide & Conquer Match, Donovan Duke!!!!
Rich Russillo: Ever since the break up of Insurgency and the beginning of Season 15 more specifically, this guy’s been absolutely killing it! Picking up SERIOUSLY impressive singles wins over individuals like Alex Myers and Candice Blair, advancing in the EAW Tag Team Championships tournament alongside Minerva, retaining his 24/7 Contract in the first ever ‘McAllister Mayhem’ match after the hell of a battle with another three Elitists, and most recently, winning the men’s Divide & Conquer match at Territorial Invasion! And tonight, he can keep killing it like he’s always been if he could earn a huge victory over an EAW Hall of Famer and a fantastic rising star!
Persephone: Oh, well, maybe he’s been doing *a bit* good, but I’m sure that nothing people can remember about him, except winning the first ever McAllister Mayhem Match, and honestly… it will only be remembered because it’s the McAllister Mayhem Match.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And this match is officially underway now! Jay Jerry Johnson versus Chris Elite versus Donovan Duke! Both Chris Elite and Jay Jerry Johnson go after Donovan Duke, as they start beating the leaving hell out of this man! The punch by Chris! Now by Jay! Chris! Jay! Chris! Jay! Chris! Jay! Chris! Jay! Chris! Both men knocked Donovan the fuck off onto the floor! And they’re not just done yet, as they continue beating the shit out of this man, NAILING HIS CHEST WITH THE FUCKING STOMPS!! THE STOMPS TO THE CHEST OF DONOVAN WITHOUT ANY WILL TO STOP!! AND CHRIS ELITE PICKS DONOVAN DUKE BACK UP TO HIS FEET..
Rich Russillo: CHRIS ELITE NAILS DONOVAN DUKE WITH AN ELBOW, AND DONOVAN FALLS ONTO JAY JERRY JOHNSON, AND WITH THE HEART OF SAINT MARY’S DIARY!!!!! THE DOUBLE HAMMERLOCK INVERTED BELLY-TO-BACK MAT SLAM CONNECTS AND KNOCKS OFF MR. 24/7!!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON GRABS DONOVAN, AND TOSSES HIM OUT OF THE RING!!! IT’S NOW JAY JERRY JOHNSON AND CHRIS ELITE ALL ALONE AGAINST EACH OTHER!!!
Persephone: LOOK, IT’S THAT JERRY JOHNSON GUY WITH A SUDDEN ROLL-UP ON CHRIS ELITE!!! CHRIS ELITE DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!! HE’S GOING TO STEAL THE VICTORY AND END THIS MATCH!!! YES, DO IT FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!!
James Peters: HOLY SHIT CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT JUST IN TIME!!!! CHRIS ELITE WITH A KICK OUT!!! BOTH COMPETITORS QUICKLY POP TO THEIR FEET, AS CHRIS ELITE TAKES DOWN JAY JERRY JOHNSON WITH A HEAD SHOT!! THE PELÉ KICK TAKES DOWN JAY JERRY JOHNSON!!! CHRIS ELITE INTO THE COVER!!

AND CHRIS ELITE SEEMINGLY ISN’T DONE YET – AS HE POPS UP TO HIS FEET, BEFORE NAILING JAY JERRY JOHNSON WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT!!! THE STANDING MOONSAULT NAILS JAY JERRY JOHNSON!!! TWO BACK-TO-BACK FLIPPING MOVES!!! WHAT A START SO FAR!! CHRIS ELITE INTO THE COVER!!
Persephone: And… he kicks out. I don’t fucking know why they go for these covers that early, while they KNOW that they won’t work. Motherfuckers be targeting me by making these boring matches as long as they can. That’s unacceptable.
James Peters: Chris Elite does not waste any time at this point, as he gets right back up to his feet, grabbing Jay Jerry Johnson, and picking him right back up to his feet as well, as he has him in the Spanish Fly position, AND CHRIS ELITE WITH THE BROOKLYN HIGH!!!! THE SPANISH FLY TO JAY JERRY JOHNSON-
Rich Russillo: NO!!! CHRIS ELITE DOESN’T HIT IT! MATTER OF FACT, HE CAN’T HIT IT YET, BECAUSE JAY JERRY JOHNSON BLOCKED HIS LEG! CHRIS ELITE WENT FOR THE BROOKLYN HIGH SPANISH FLY, BUT SO FAR, IT’S SAFE TO SAY THAT IT’S A FAILED ATTEMPT! JAY JERRY JOHNSON, AFTER A FEW SECONDS OF BLOCKING CHRIS ELITE’S LEG, COUNTERING THE BROOKLYN HIGH, LIFTS UP CHRIS ELITE AT THE SAME POSITION, AND NAILS HIM WITH THE URANAGE!!! THE URANAGE SLAMS THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE’S ON THE CANVAS!! WHAT AN EFFORT SO FAR BY BOTH COMPETITORS SO FAR!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON FALLS ONTO THE COVER!! THE COVER ON CHRIS ELITE!!!
James Peters: KICK OUT! Chris Elite pops his shoulder up! Both competitors have given a wonderful start so far, meanwhile Donovan Duke is still laying there at the ringside, seemingly still unconscious. Jay Jerry Johnson gets on top of Chris Elite, AS HE STARTS NAILING THE FORHEAD OF CHRIS ELITE WITH THE CONSECUTIVE PUNCHES!! AND AGAIN!! HE DOESN’T STOP!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON KEEPS BEATING THE FUCK OUT OF CHRIS ELITE, GIVING THE REFEREE NO CHOICE, BUT STARTING HIS FIVE COUNT!!
Referee: (off-mic) GET OFF HIM, JAY! ONE!
Referee: (off-mic) TWO!
Referee: (off-mic) THREE!
Referee: (off-mic) FOUR!
Rich Russillo: And he finally gets off Chris Elite! Jay Jerry Johnson gets right back up to his feet- BUT HEY, LOOK, IT’S DONOVAN DUKE!! DONOVAN DUKE WITH THE GERMAN SUPLEX TO TRIPLE J FROM BEHIND!!!!! HE DROPS JAY JERRY JOHNSON’S BACK OF THE HEAD RIGHT ON THE MAT!!! WHAT A SUDDEN COMEBACK FROM DONOVAN DUKE!! HE’S BACK IN THIS MATCH, AND SEEMINGLY AIN’T DONE YET, AS HE STARES AT CHRIS ELITE, WHO IS GETTING BACK UP TO HIS FEET SLOWLY, USING THE ROPES, BEFORE NAILING THE SKULL OF THE HALL OF FAMER WITH A ‘DEALER’S CHOICE!!!!!’ THE SPINNING BACK FIST CONNECTS!!!! AND IT IMMEDIATELY TAKES DOWN CHRIS ELITE!!! DONOVAN HOOKS ONE LEG!! THE COVER BY ‘THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMEN!!!!!!!!’
Persephone: And he kicks out. Couldn’t that guy end that match since he had enough time to recover already? Fucking bozo.
James Peters: HEY, LOOK, IT’S JAY JERRY JOHNSON FROM BEHIND WITH A SCHOOL BOY!!! THE ROLL-UP ON MR. 24/7!! IS HE GOING TO STEAL THE VICTORY H- WAIT DONOVAN COUNTERS!!! DONOVAN DUKE ROLLS THROUGH, REVERSING THE ROLL-UP INTO ONE OF HIS OWN!! HE ROLLS UP JAY JERRY JOHNSON!!! THIS MIGHT BE IT!!
Rich Russillo: AND BEFORE THE REFEREE EVEN CONTINUES HIS COUNT, DONOVAN DUKE ROLLS THROUGH ONCE AGAIN, FLIPPING BACKWARDS, LIFTING UP JAY JERRY JOHNSON, BEFORE DROPPING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD ON THE MAT ONCE AGAIN WITH ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!! THE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS AND NAILS JAY JERRY JOHNSON JOHNSON!!! WHAT A COMEBACK BY DONOVAN!!
(Donovan Duke pops back up to his feet completely fired up, as he hypes the crowd, and it gives a loud pop in return.)
James Peters: Donovan Duke hypes up the crowd, who does nothing but go louder with cheering this man. He picks Jay Jerry Johnson right back up to his feet, as he lifts him up in a powerslam position, AND HE-

Persephone: None of them is willing to stop targeting me*.
James Peters: Jay Jerry Johnson is down, catching his breath for a few moments, however, he gets right back up to his feet, grabbing Donovan Duke, before picking him back up to his feet as well, as then then nails his gut with a straight kick! He grabs him between his legs, in a powerbomb position… looks like Triple J is going for a Pedigree. AND JAY JERRY JOHNSON WITH A PEDIGR- WAIT, NO! DONOVAN DUKE FLIPS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS! JAY JERRY JOHNSON LANDS RIGHT ON HIS BACK! OUCH, I BET THAT HURTS! AND BEFORE JAY CAN EVEN RECOVER, DONOVAN GRABS HIS LEG, AS HE RAISES IT HIGH IN THE AIR, LOCKING IN ANKLE LOCK!!! THE ANKLE LOCK BY DONOVAN DUKE!!! THE ANKLE LOCK IS APPLIED!!! THE ANKLE LOCK IS LOCKED IN!!! DONOVAN DUKE LOCKS IN THE ANKLE LOCK, AND JAY JERRY JOHNSON HAS NOWHERE TO GO!!

Rich Russillo: THOUGH, HE STILL DOESN’T GIVE UP IN THE SLIGHTEST, AS HE STARTS CRAWLING TO THE BOTTOM ROPE, GIVING IT HIS ALL, BUT DONOVAN DUKE IS GIVING IT HIS ALL AS WELL, AS HE KEEPS THE ANKLE LOCK LOCKED IN!! HOWEVER, IT STILL DOESN’T STOP JAY JERRY JOHNSON!!! HE’S STILL CRAWLING!!! HE’S STILL SCRATCHING!!! HE’S STILL CLAWING!!!

DONOVAN DUKE KEEPS THE ANKLE LOCK LOCKED IN, WHILE JAY JERRY JOHNSON IS JUST TRYING SO HARD TO MOVE, SCREAMING IN AGONY!!!! I BELIEVE IT REALLY IS DIFFICULT TO BE IN JAY JERRY JOHNSON’S POSITION AT THE MOMENT, BECAUSE AT THIS POINT, IF I WERE HIM, AND THANK GOD I’M NOT, I WOULD TAP OUT!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON, NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIED CAN’T ANYMORE!!! LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING TO TAP!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON, WITHOUT ANY MORR ENERGY LEFT, RAISES HIS HAND UP, AND HE TA-
Rich Russillo: ‘OPEN YA MATA!!!!!!!!!’ ‘OPEN YA MATA!!!!!!!!!’ CHRIS ELITE FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE ‘OPEN YA MATA’ TO DONOVAN DUKE!!!! THE JUMPING KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS AND NAILS DONOVAN DUKE, TAKING HIM ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE MAT!!!! WHAT A DOMINANT, SUDDEN COMEBACK BY CHRIS ELITE!!!

Rich Russillo: Chris Elite wastes no time though, as he then picks up Jay Jerry Johnson, who is totally hurt after what he’s just been through, AND WITH A PUNCH RIGHT TO THE JAW OF TRIPLE J! JAY JERRY JOHNSON HAS HAD ENOUGH TIME TO RECOVER THOUGH, AS HE ANSWERS WITH A BIG RIGHT HAND OF HIS OWN!!! AND CHRIS ELITE PUNCHES HIM BACK! AND JAY JERRY JOHNSON WITH ONE OF HIS OWN!

Rich Russillo: BUT, CHRIS ELITE MANAGES TO DUCK THAT! CHRIS ELITE DUCKS UNDERNEATH, AS HE TURNS JAY JERRY JOHNSON AROUND, BEFORE NAILING HIM WITH A FOREARM RIGHT TO THE NOSE, WHICH FAZES JAY’S BALANCE!

Persephone: :mjcry: :mjcry: :mjcry:
Rich Russillo: Chris Elite gets right back up to his feet, looking totally tired and angry, and it’s clear on his face. However, he picks- DONOVAN DUKE FROM BEHIND! IT’S DONOVAN DUKE! DONOVAN DUKE TURNS CHRIS ELITE AROUND, AND WITH THE ‘DRAWING DEAD!!!!’ THE ‘DRAWING DEAD!!!!!’ THE MICHINOKU DRIVER CONNECTS AND TAKES DOWN CHRIS ELITE!!!! DONOVAN DUKE, AT THE SAME POSITION, HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! THE COVER!! THE COVER!! THE COVER ON CHRIS ELITE!!
James Peters: CHRIS ELITE FORCES HIS SHOULDER UP FROM THE MAT!! CHRIS ELITE WITH A KICK OUT!!! THE KICK OUT BY CHRIS ELITE SHOCKED DONOVAN DUKE AS YOU CAN SEE ON HIS FACE!! THIS MATCH CONTINUES-
Rich Russillo: DONOVAN DUKE ALL OF A SUDDEN POPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE RUNS, CLOTHESLINING JAY JERRY JOHNSON, WHO WAS LEANING TOWARD THE ROPES OUT OF THE RING!! DONOVAN DUKE JUST TOSSED JAY JERRY JOHNSON OUT OF THE RING AND IT’S ALL DOWN BETWEEN DONOVAN DUKE AND CHRIS ELITE NOW!!
James Peters: Donovan Duke turns around, as Chris Elite is downed on the mat, slowly trying to get right back up to his feet. Donovan Duke grabs him, as he gets him fully back up, before lifting him up, and with A POWERBOMB TO CHRI- NO!!! CHRIS WITH THE COUNTER!!! CHRIS REVERSES FLIPPING HIM OVER WITH A HURRICANRANA!!! THE HURRICANRANA TO DONOVAN DUKE!!! CHRIS ELITE IMMEDIATELY GETS BACK UP, AS DONOVAN DUKE GETS RIGHT BACK UP FROM THE IMPACT, BUT CHRIS ELITE WITH A PUNCH! AND ANOTHER! DONOVAN STEPS BACK, WHILE CHRIS ELITE REBOUNDS, AND HE NAILS HIM WITH A SHOOT KICK!! DONOVAN BACKS UP OUT OF BALANCE, AS CHRIS ELITE REBOUNDS ONCE AGAIN, RUNNING OFF THE ROPES, BEFORE NAILING HIM WITH A BACK FIST!! DONOVAN WAS ABOUT TO FALL, BUT BEFORE HE DOES, CHRIS ELITE PULLS HIM BACK, NOT ALLOWING HIM TO, AS HE THEN NAILS HIM WITH A POWERFUL LARIAT!!! WHAT A COMBO BY CHRIS ELITE!! THE BOROUGH COMBO!!
Rich Russillo: Though, Chris Elite, apparently, isn’t done yet, as he doesn’t go for the cover, rolling out of the ring onto the apron, before starting to climb his way up to the top turnbuckle, which he reaches. Donovan Duke is down, while Chris Elite is up there at the top turnbuckle, balancing himself. Chris Elite dives his way high in the air, AS HE FLIPS, BEFORE NAILING DONOVAN DUKE WITH A 450 SPLASH!!!!! 450 SPLASH!!! THE 450 SPLASH CONNEC-
James Peters: NO!!! IT DOESN’T CONNECT!!! DONOVAN DUKE GETS HIS KNEES UP, AS CHRIS ELITE **CRASHES** ONTO THOSE KNEES!!!

THE ’44 BULLDOG!!!!!!!!!!’ THE ’44 BULLDOG’ ON DONOVAN!!!! THE LAWN DART CONNECTS!!!!! WHAT A MOVE BY CHRIS ELITE!!! Donovan Duke, quite hurt, tired, and out of energy uses the bottom rope to get back up to his feet, while Chris Elite is already back up on his feet, waiting for Donovan to turn around, as Donovan finally turns, ONLY FOR CHRIS ELITE TO NAIL HIM WITH THE ‘BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!’ THE SUPERKICK CONNECTS AND KNOCKS DONOVAN DUKE THE FUCK OUT COLD!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE INTO THE COVER!!! HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! THAT’S DEFINITELY IT!!!!
James Peters: JAY JERRY JOHNSON JUST PUNTED THE FUCK OUT OF CHRIS ELITE’S SKULL!!!!!!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON WITH THE PUNT KICK!!!!! THE RUNNING PUNT KICK CONNECTS AND BREAKS UP THE PIN!!!!!! DONOVAN DUKE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, AS CHRIS ELITE IS GROUNDED, HOLDING HIS JAW, IN CLEAR, OBVIOUS PAIN!!!! WHAT A COMEBACK!!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON IS LOOKING TO PUT AN END TO THIS WHOLE THING, AND SNEAK OUT OF IT WITH THE VICTORY, AS HE PICKS CHRIS ELITE RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND CONNECTS WITH ‘THE HEART OF SAINT MARY’S DIARY!!!!!!!!!!!’ THE DOUBLE HAMMERLOCK INVERTED BACK-TO-BELLY MAT SLAM TAKES DOWN CHRIS ELI-

JAY TURNS AROUND- AND CHRIS ELITE WITH THE ‘BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!’ THE SUPERKICK CONNECTS AND KNOCKS JAY JERRY JOHNSON THE FUCK OUT COLD!!!! THIS IS CHRIS ELITE’S VICTORY!!!! JAY JERRY JOHNSON IS DOWN!!! CHRIS ELI-

DONOVAN DUKE SITS RIGHT ON THE MIDDLE OF THE BODY OF JAY JERRY JOHNSON, HOOKING BOTH LEGS!!!! THE COVER ON JAY JERRY JOHNSON!!! THE COVER!!! DONOVAN IS GOING TO STEAL THE VICTORY HERE!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘The Outsiders’ by Eric Church blasts through the speakers once again, as the crowd erupts with cheers. Donovan Duke rolls off Jay Jerry Johnson, looking quite hurt and tired, but having a slight smirk on his face. The referee grabs Donovan’s hand, as he holds it up high in the air, acknowledging him as the winner. Chris Elite is seen standing at the ringside, leaning toward the barricade, having a VERY shocked expression on his face. Donovan looks at him from the ring, before he lets out a little laugh. He starts climbing his way to the top turnbuckle, as he shows off, celebrating his victory.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… DONOVAAAAANNNN…. DUUUUKKKKEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: What a victory for Donovan Duke!! What a match we were just able to witness!
Rich Russillo: Maybe, Donovan Duke ‘stole’ what seemed to be Donovan’s victory – but a win is a win, and tonight was just not Chris Elite’s nig-
James Peters: CHRIS ELITE, LOOKING TOTALLY MAD WITH WHAT JUST HAPPENED, SLIDES IN THE RING AND STRIKES WITH A LARIAT TO DONOVAN DUKE- BUT, DONOVAN DUCKS UNDERNEATH, AS HE SLIPS OUT OF THE RING BEFORE CHRIS ELITE COULD EVEN GET AHOLD OF HIM!
(Donovan Duke, with a grin on his face from the ringside, raises his hand, celebrating his victory, as both him and Chris Elite stare down each other, but the difference is that Chris Elite isn’t laughing; he looks REALLY angry. The last shot is Donovan spreading both of his arms, continuing to celebrate his victory. From there, Voltage fades to black.)
(The camera cuts backstage after that Triple Threat match between Chris Elite, Jay Jerry Johnson and Donovan Duke to Sofia Clarke standing backstage, ready with a microphone in hand, causing the crowd to immediately begin cheering for a moment. She wears a pleasant smile on her face before she takes a deep breath and begins to speak.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time… EAW Hall of Famer; The Queen of the Nile… Cleopatra!
(The longest reigning Vixen’s Champion of all time steps into the camera’s view. It may not be in the position that she particularly expected to find herself in after her Clash of Kingdoms match for the National Elite Championship, but she certainly doesn’t look like it has her down. We can hear the thousands packed inside the Motorpoint Arena cheering for the Queen of the Nile, clearly still behind her even despite her suffering a loss at Clash of Kingdoms.)
Sofia Clarke: Cleopatra, we watched you compete against New Eden’s Minerva for the National Elite Championship at Clash of Kingdoms 2. It had been years since we had seen you compete inside of a wrestling ring here and it certainly didn’t look like you’ve missed a step in your time away. While I’m sure that match didn’t finish in the fashion that you had hoped, are we able to continue to look forward to seeing you compete here in EAW?
Cleopatra: You know… I’ve had a lot to think about throughout the last week. You’re definitely right. I believed that I would be standing here today with that National Elite Championship either over my shoulder or around my waist. I believed that I was going to help knock New Eden down another notch after their loss at Territorial Invasion, but I can admit that I was bested by the champion. I can openly admit that Minerva is far better than I gave her credit for and that’s partly the reason why I lost; expectation, underestimation – we can call it whatever we want, but the reality remains that I was unsuccessful. I’m not the National Elite Champion. But, I’ve come to learn throughout my time in this business that it’s better to look at the positives that I can take away, rather than placing my focus on the negatives. Minerva and I made history at Clash of Kingdoms. We’re the first two women to compete against each other for a male dominated championship in the Middle East. That’s history that’s going to be remembered forever, and making history is exactly what the Queen of the Nile is all about. While our rivalry didn’t end in the manner that I had hoped; I’m still content with closing the door on that chapter of my career.
(Sofia looks to follow up with another question, but there’s a commotion heard in the distance. It quickly gains the attention of both Cleopatra and Sofia Clarke before Rebecca Blackwell and Mary S. Atlas are finally seen. The two are both visibly mad following an attack from Kensi and Lisa Wren earlier in the night.)
Rebecca Blackwell: HOW?!… How was it possible that those two were able to get the jump on the both of us? How were they allowed through the doors of this arena when neither of them are contracted to this brand and hold nothing that should allow them to come onto our show without consequence? They shouldn’t have even been allowed here, and they cost me the match against Lucas Johnson!
Mary S. Atlas: We’ve been busting our backs trying to prove our worth and this is what we’re afforded? We wouldn’t have had a problem if we were given the chance to compete against both of them in the confines of a match, but instead were assaulted on our own show! You’re unfairly cost a match, and those two are just able to get away with it!
(The two make their way over to both Sofia Clarke and Cleopatra, but in their distress they haven’t noticed the interview that they’ve unintentionally interrupted.)
Cleopatra: Uhhh, hello? I can see neither of you are happy with what happened earlier tonight, but it would be greatly appreciated if you could both do this somewhere else.
(Both Mary and Rebecca stop before looking at Cleopatra, and the two of them were already unhappy from what happened earlier. Now they look a bit confused after hearing Cleopatra interrupt them.)
Mary S. Atlas: Excuse me?
Rebecca Blackwell: What did you just say?
Cleopatra: I’m being nice enough to acknowledge what you’re going through and asking if you’re able to do… whatever the two of you are doing somewhere else.
Rebecca Blackwell: The… absolute disrespect! We should put our problems to the side because it interferes with what you’re doing? Did you see what just happened a while ago!?
Mary S. Atlas: It doesn’t change. You’re just like everyone else; we’re trying to do what we need to do and we’re forced to do what others want us to do. We were attacked tonight by two people that had no business being on this brand. But, we’re expected to pick where we’re able to handle and process what happened, because it doesn’t fit into what YOU want to do? Our problems are interfering with what the QuEeN oF tHe NiLe is doing.
(Cleopatra takes a deep breath, trying to keep herself calm and ensuring that this situation doesn’t escalate further than it needs to. Sofia Clarke backs away, knowing that the interview has well and truly finished with the interruption from MaryBecca.)
Cleopatra: I know what the two of you are going through. I understand the emotion and the frustration, but with this display you’re dragging me into a situation that I shouldn’t and really don’t want to be a part of. This was my time to talk about the future of my career and what happened last week at Clash of Kingdoms. But, I’m generous enough to let this slide and you two and saunter off and do whatever the two of you believe is going to make you both feel better than you do now. I’ve been nice enough to tell you this once, but I’m not going to do it again.
(The two look to begin to move on their own way, but stop after a few steps as Rebecca Blackwell turns straight back towards the Queen of the Nile.)
Rebecca Blackwell: I don’t believe that you know who you’re talking to. This isn’t 2012 where this is a business that’s going to allow you to do whatever you want. YOU are the person that needs to watch the tone in their voice and things that they’re saying because it’s the attitude that you have which we’re tired of being forced to deal with. We’re tired of being bullied and expected to simply fall in line with what everyone else wants us to do. We’ve worked too hard to let people like you, people like Kensi and Lisa Wren, to try to place us under their thumbs as we continue to work and strive towards the things that we want to achieve. We’re not going to jump or walk away simply because you want us to. We’re tired of this and we’re not going to be taken lightly anymore.
(The fire in the eyes of Rebecca Blackwell is evident. The emotion. The frustration of the night has become nothing but fuel burning as adrenaline pumps through her body. Cleopatra takes a step forward, coming nose to nose with Rebecca.)
Cleopatra: I know that this isn’t personal. It doesn’t matter who was standing in front of you; they all would have been forced to listen to that same speech. But you need to think about making sure that you’re not writing cheques that you’re not going to be able to cash in.
(Rebecca understood the tone of Cleopatra’s voice. Cleopatra had given them their warning to keep moving on their way and now her tone was sharp and cold. Rebecca places her right foot back, before quickly coming back nose to nose with The Queen of the Nile.)
Rebecca Blackwell: You don’t move forward by running away.
(You could cut the tension with a knife. Neither Cleopatra or Rebecca Blackwell look like they’re going to back down, but suddenly, a smile crosses the face of the Queen of the Nile.)
Cleopatra: Keep that fire. It’ll help push you a long way in this business. Just make sure you don’t burn yourself with it.
(Cleopatra makes her exit leaving Rebecca Blackwell and Mary S. Atlas to process what just happened. While the beginning of their night might not have started how they believed that it would; they may have just learned something about themselves which they didn’t know. There’s a fire and determination burning deep inside the two of them and we’re only just beginning to see how wild that fire could possibly become. The camera cuts elsewhere as the two of them keep their eyes on Cleopatra who walks through off into the distance.)
(Voltage fades to a promotional ad for the Wicked Games event.)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break to the backstage area of the Motorpoint Arena, starting the scene in the private locker room that is shared between the Universal Women’s Champion, Ms. Extreme, along with her sister, Candice Blair. Both of them are seen in casual clothing seeing as there’s no matches to be had for the two of them tonight on Voltage, they appear to just be chilling, minding their own business. Ms. Extreme is seated on the fluffy couch that they have, propped next to her is the Universal Women’s Championship which gleams under the light that illuminates the room. Meanwhile Candice Blair is leaning against a wall, with her phone out, scrolling through Social Stream. It’s not long after that Ms. Extreme looks up to her sister, leaning back on the couch and sighing, bringing her hands behind her back.)
Ms. Extreme: God, even though it was two weeks ago… I still have the sight of me standing tall over the beaten and battered Ximena Velasquez embedded in my head. It’s such a satisfying feeling, and knowing that I did exactly what I said, walking out still the Universal Women’s Champion at Territorial Invasion, just makes it even sweeter. I mean, I don’t know what anyone expected in the first place to be honest. Everything I said leading up to the match was undeniable. Eczema was just not going to be ready for what was coming her way. She could talk about her heritage and the reign of dominance that she’s been on during her tenure in Elite Answers Wrestling all she wanted, it didn’t take away from the fact that she never faced someone like me. To make her feel better, she’s not singled out in the slightest, not many people walk through those doors the way that I do, I’m simply a next level talent and the Championship around my waist proves that. And it will continue to stay that way for as long as I still have a choice to walk into that ring each and every week. I will defend this Championship with pride and hell, I might as well go along with the trend and focus on the record I need to break to place myself in the history books as well.
(Candice looks up from her phone, totally listening while she nods her head with a smile on her face. Ms. Extreme takes her Universal Championship before pridefully slinging it over her shoulder, patting the front plating of it while looking down at it, nodding her head before looking back up and continuing her monologue.)
Ms. Extreme: Leading into Wicked Games, I don’t think anything is going to be much different. The news has come around that yours truly will be defending the Championship that she made famous against one Holly Arrow at the go-home show heading into the spooky Halloween event that is set to unfold, and I have no problem making sure that she gets the memo that nobody will be able to stop my path of legitimate destruction. She can try her best, and believe me I know she will. She knows just as much as everyone else that this is the biggest opportunity of her career, fighting for a World Championship that everyone wants a piece of. And she will lay it all on the line in hopes of being the one to finally take me down on Voltage, but even then, it won’t be enough. Because I’ve been through hell and back, it’s contendable if it’s figuratively and or legitimately. Holly Arrow won’t be enough to take me down for good, nothing has, nothing will.
(Ms. Extreme chuckles to herself while she once again leans back on the couch she’s sitting on. Candice, who this time was fully focused on her sister, tucked her phone in her pocket before pushing herself off the wall she was leaning on before making her way towards Ms. Extreme.)
Candice Blair: As it should be 😌. Honestly, I’m still a bit bummed out by what happened at Territorial Invasion :mjcry:. ✨Dandice✨ was a team that was no doubt, contrary to belief, capable of winning the Unified Tag Team Championships. It was written in the stars! But, shit happened. What I will wholeheartedly say for certain, because I know that it’s 100% the truth, is that Danny and I put up an absolutely valiant effort. It was one for the ages and we laid it all on the line especially when the opposition downplayed our abilities and made us seem like less than who we actually are 😔. We pulled ourselves together and kept fighting and ultimately, put some eyes on us. I knew people weren’t going to take us very seriously, especially Danny, but we walked in there to prove that it’s far from the truth and I believe that we did that. Is that the last time you’ll see Candice Blair in tag team action? Who knows if I’m going to be honest with you, all I need to say for certain, is that the loss didn’t get to me and I only kept pushing from there. I hit rock bottom, and I got back up and kept climbing just like I’ve always done :blessed:.
Candice Blair: Which was proven to be true in Kuwait at Clash of Kingdoms 2! I transitioned that setback when Danny and I lost against Harlow and Xavier for the Unified Tag Team Championship to a victory against Ashley Flores where I won a buckload of money 🤑🤑🤑! Nah, I kid, I kid… I told everyone my intentions when it comes to what I’d do with the money and I did just that. I donated all the money that I accumulated to the people that are suffering after what happened in Afghanistan. No amount of handbags that I buy could accumulate to the warmth that I get knowing that I helped people in need :wow:. Yet people still trash me for being a kewt lil activist. It’s troubling, but nonetheless, I don’t lose sleep over it. I did what I set out to do and believe it or not, it’s only going to go up from here. One way or another, you will see me in the spotlight that I know I deserve. :wow:
(Suddenly, both of their attentions are deviated to the door as a quiet knock is heard. Ms. Extreme, being closest to the door, stands up and begins to make her way over before opening the door. It’s revealed to be none other than Danny Tanner who’s smile quickly drains from his face in a combination of fear and lust upon seeing the Universal Women’s Champion. His legs begin to shake as Ms. Extreme raises an eyebrow.)
Danny Tanner: Is-is… Candice here?
Ms. Extreme: Of course.
(Ms. Extreme moves out of the way allowing Danny to make his way inside. He has his hands behind his back for some weird reason as Candice has a warm smile on her face upon seeing the absolutely loveable Danny.)
Ms. Extreme: Your knight in shining armor is here :mjgrin:.
Candice Blair: Don’t make fun of my gay bestfriend like that.
Danny Tanner: I just wanted to take the time to say, I’m sorry for letting you down at Territorial Invasion. I know that Unified Tag Team Championship match meant a lot to you, as it did to me. But it wasn’t enough and we lost. I feel pretty bad because I know there were a lot of expectations especially with me standing beside your… busty… self. And I disappointed, and although you won some money, I felt like I could pay you back in some way.
(Danny brings out his hands to reveal a Pumpkin Spice Latte in his hands which completely bulges out Candice’s eyes. Candice quickly scrambles over and snatches it before giving Danny a big hug. Danny’s eyes widen as his legs get weak, he looks like he’s about to faint but for the moment, he manages to keep himself upward. Candice then quickly scrambles towards the couch, sipping on the latte with a beaming smile on her face. Before she can respond to him, Ms. Extreme speaks up, with her arms crossed.)
Ms. Extreme: One for me too?
Danny Tanner: Hi.
(In an instant Danny dashes out of the locker room in fear. He’s so scared, he isn’t looking where he’s going, and ends up colliding into someone while he trips down to the ground. He mumbles quickly to himself, reminding himself to apologize before looking up in fear.)
Alex Myers: Watch where you’re fucking going, prick.
Danny Tanner: :krabs:!!!
(An unpleasant scene indeed, but that’s not the main focus as the camera transitions back to the locker room. Ms. Extreme looks in confusion outside before slowly closing the door, making her way over and taking a seat next to Candice who looks absolutely baffled, but at the same time not really surprised, at the scene that just unfolded in front of her.)
Candice Blair: You scared the poor guy away. :picard:
Ms. Extreme: He deserved it if he wasn’t going to get me one too.
Candice Blair: You know who would get you one…
Ms. Extreme: Oh my fucking God…
(Ms. Extreme rubs her temple before Candice shakes her head in disappointment. She’s accusing her of the obvious, the concerning matters to her when it comes to the EAW World Champion and New Eden member, Drake King.)
Candice Blair: As much as you want to deny it, everyone can see it from a mile away. You caught feelings for Dr*ke, and let me tell you right now, you’re making a big mistake.
Ms. Extreme: Fuck no, who the hell do you think I am stooping down to the level of a little church boy? The only reason that I’m even getting near him in the first place is because me and him are partners, and fortunately for us, we both know how to co-exist with one another. By no means does that mean this stupid belief that I suddenly like Drake more than him just being a business partner is true.
Candice Blair: You can say what you want to say, but it’s flatout denial. Trust me, I’m not saying that you should do it, I’m saying that’s a horrible move that you’re leaning yourself into. Considering I had to deal with his pink haired victim a few months back, I know exactly how he ticks. He’s a fucking abuser and should be treated as such, I’m just shocked the EAW Universe hasn’t decided to cancel him yet. So don’t make the same mistake that Sierra did and find yourself embraced by whatever lust comes out of that crusty beard of his, because I promise you, what he did to Sierra, will be no different from what he does to you-
Ms. Extreme: Can you please just shut the fuck up?
Candice Blair: :whoa: Alrighty then. Look, just watch out for him, I care about you, Camille.
(Candice holds up her hands in innocence before taking her Pumpkin Spice Latte and walking out of the door, leaving Ms. Extreme in deep thought. Immediately Candice turns her head as her eyes widen in shock. Danny is once again seen, leaning against a wall with a bloody nose trying to wipe it off. Candice gently places her latte down on a table near her before running towards him and checking on him.)
Candice Blair: Danny! Are you okay?!
Danny Tanner: Yeah, yeah… I bumped into that dark edgy guy and they started berating me. I tried to move out of their way and mind my business, but they punched me in the nose and shoved me out of the way. I was going to do something, but he disappeared like Batman or whatever, or he probably just rounded the corner…
Candice Blair: Oh I swear they’re going to get it-
???: Hm? Who’s going to get what now? Let’s not get so uptight right now you little girl. I promise you, picking on Alex is a battle that you’re not going to win.
(Candice is stopped as she closes her eyes in annoyance, turning around to see Ryan Wilson strutting up to meet the two of them with a shit-eating grin on his face.)
Ryan Wilson: Let’s not cause any trouble now, Alex and I have a tag team match to win in the main event and the last thing we want are some… nuisances getting in our way because poor Danny here happened to not watch where he was going. But hey, since you guys are here, I should advise you guys to tune in and see this beautiful face alongside Alex’s pop up on your televisions screens. Because we’re going to do what you two couldn’t, and that’s win the Unified Tag Team Championships.
(Despite Danny being in pain, and despite Candice being concerned for him. Both of them look towards Alex and begin to break down into pure laughter. Ryan looks absolutely baffled, looking around between the two of them in complete confusion.)
Danny Tanner: Yeah… sure dude.
Candice Blair: Whatever you say!
(Ryan is absolutely annoyed, before he can say anything, Danny and Candice turn around before walking off. Ryan looks around for a moment, before gripping his hands into a fist, turning around and walking away, which is the last shot seen before Voltage ultimately begins to fade elsewhere.)
(The camera fades to a commercial for the upcoming game EAW 2k22.)
(Voltage fades to a shot of Ryan Wilson who is located somewhere backstage, and immediately the crowd erupts in a thunderous amount of boos, the likes rarely heard on Sunday nights which seems to bring a wide smirk to the lips of the Montréal native who waits for the boos to start dying down before… )
Ryan Wilson: Am I annoying you yet?
(Another round of massive, ear-deafening boos coming from the local Cardiff crowd.)
Ryan Wilson: KEEP GOING! KEEP BOOING! I LOVE IT!! I fucking love It!
(The fans energetically throw a loud series of boos to the Jerk with a Mouth who makes a motion of “give me more”, makes some noise with his hands rousing the crowd before he ends up laughing. Clearly, he is enjoying himself as the crowd ends up calming down.)
Ryan Wilson: When you are a man like me, who leaves no one indifferent, who proves you peckerheads and the blokes at catering wrong, who is the Slap in the Face of this company AND the Architect of this promotion… You can do pretty much whatever you want! This includes, but isn’t limited to, taking time on the air when I’m not slotted to have any! Besides, there is no way I was NOT going to have a chat with my ”Beloved” fan base tonight!
(The fans go into thunderous boos once more.)
Ryan Wilson: If I could gain nourishment from your hate I would be satisfied for years! Do you see now why I am one of the best in this fucking business? No one is bad when they draw this kind of heat out of the fans! No one! And it doesn’t matter what your name is or what you’ve done in the past because AS OF NOW who generates the most reaction is not the likes of Myles or Drake or Minerva no. It’s moi! It’s fucking ME! Ryan Joseph Motherfucking Wilson! And guess what numbnuts? I’m not done! Not set by a long shot! A whole lot of things took place over the span of just a few short weeks for me. Namely Territorial Invasion and Clash of Kingdoms. During the yearly war-themed event I have set myself to make a difference in the Brand Warfare and I did that by eliminating an opponent and thus helping the Golden Brand winning the match! I did my part, which happened to be a two-birds-one-stone type of opportunity because the one I took out was the same man I was facing the week after during Clash of Kingdoms in Kuwait City. Territorial Invasion was me showing that I can go wherever I want to go despite what others say or want! Jamie didn’t want me as part of the team? I forced my way in! I gave him no choice but to take me as one of the crew!
(The fans boos further.)
Ryan Wilson: Oh shut up you dirty skags none of you have the balls to stick it to your boss when you want something! You people are nothing but a pack of hurdled sheep! Corporate drones are for those who actually have a job which must not be the majority around here!!
(The booing doesn’t stop, but the sound from the crowd just amuses Ryan.)
Ryan Wilson: That’s right give it to me losers! Keep going I can bask in those boos and revel in them all night! Then at Clash of Kingdoms… Things didn’t go exactly according to plan. The match itself was good, I gave it the good effort I pulled my weight, I did my job but the result wasn’t what I had wanted. Instead of leaving Kuwait City a Champion I had to watch Amir Yusuf leave with the New Breed Championship.
(The crowd erupts in a choir of cheers! The Montréal native rolls his eyes before the cheers turn into something different.)
Crowd: Fuck You, Ryan! *Clap! Clap! CLAPCLAPCLAP!* Fuck You Ryan! *Clap! Clap! CLAPCLAPCLAP!* Fuck You Ryan! *Clap! Clap! CLAPCLAPCLAP!*
Ryan Wilson: Typical Cardiff loser bloke reaction! So yeah, I lost to the guy but as I said before I would not bitch or moan, complain or whine about it. However, losing the title made me hungry. The kind of hunger that can only be satiated with a Championship well strapped around my waist! I am hungry for Championships and I want plenty more than the one belt I held proudly for 95 days! You see, I did tap out against Amir Yusuf, why hide it? Why deny it? I abdicated the title to him, the pain from the maneuver he pulled on me was too strong for me to keep battling and there was no way out of it. So I tapped out, but as I did, I told myself what I am about to tell you fucknuts now; I vowed that I would not be a one-and-done Champion. I reminded myself of this because it’s always been part of the plan! It never was my intention to simply win one title then call it a career that’s not how Ryan Wilson operates! I did good with the New Breed Championship, it served its purpose but now I am setting my eyes on other prizes and not just another one; Plenty more! Ryan Wilson is going to be a Champion again and it won’t take me nearly 4 years to land the next one! But that is for the future, tonight I am focused on beating a team that is in the way of getting my second career Championship here in EAW! Myles and Justin Windgate are my opponents as I am partnering up with Alex Myers and we are going all-in with this team! Ryan Wilson and Alex Myers is a team comprising two of the fastest rising stars in this company and thus that makes us a serious threat to any team no matter what they think of us and especially the reigning Unified Tag Team Champions in Xavier Williams and Harlow Reichert. Those two need to pay attention to this team because after we are done with this crew we will move on to the next and sooner than they think they will be facing us, and they will LOSE to us!
Ryan Wilson: I had a great run with the New Breed Championship, no one will make me think differently. Battling the likes of Alex Myers, Mary S. Atlas, and Amir Yusuf allowed me to grow as an individual and to push the Ryan Wilson brand to higher levels of excellence. Battling them allowed me to add blocks to the foundation of my Legacy and that includes the loss to the so-called Heart of Elite Answers Wrestling! Because it shows you my character! Do I look like I’m crying over the loss? Do I look like I struggle to cope with it? Nope! Couldn’t be me! I am better than that, cut from a different cloth and made for much greater things! The New Breed Championship was but a step on my path to Legendary Status in this company and I won’t stop until I have ticked all of the boxes off my list!
Ryan Wilson: You can hate me all you want, you can boo me all you want, you can tell me I suck every single day of the twice and even more on Sunday but it doesn’t alter in the slightest the fact that Ryan Wilson is a force to be reckoned with in this company AND a man who is fast climbing the ladder of success in this company! Boo me, it won’t stop me from raising a Championship over my head once more and when that day comes and you all boo me I will be smiling, laughing, cackling even because I will once again have proven you deadbeats wrong! No one thought I could make it to EAW and I made it. No one thought I could be a Champion and I did it! No one thinks I can be Champion again… Just you wait. Winning a Championship is as inevitable as Thanos taking half of my life during Endgame, the major difference between me and the purple Titan? I ain’t dying at the end. My name is already immortalized in the history books as a New Breed Champion but I thrive to get so much more! And I will get so much more, just you wait and just you see! Because I will do what I have to do in order to make it happen, I did it before, it will happen again and there ain’t nobody here in all of Elite Answers Wrestling that can stop me! So allow me to conclude this segment by telling you things like they are: Ryan Wilson is Elite…
(The crowd begins to boo.)
Ryan Wilson: Ryan Wilson is better than anyone here in this arena.
Ryan Wilson: Ryan Wilson is The Architect of Elite Answers Wrestling! And I am not done building! AND IF I HAVE TO DO IT AT YOUR EXPENSE YOU DUMB IDIOTS I WON’T THINK TWICE ABOUT IT!
(He does a mic drop maneuver before smirking and making his way to the exit stage left.)
(Voltage fades to their final commercial break of the night, which is a promotional ad for new movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage.)
(Bella Braxton is standing inside the ring, ready to introduce the competitors in tonight’s main event.)
James Peters: OH BOY, THE MATCH WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TAG TEAM MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
(Crowd repeats: ONE FALL!)
Bella Braxton: AND THIS MATCH IS A FIRST ROUND TAG TEAM TURMOIL TOURNAMENT MATCH!!! THE WINNERS OF THIS MATCH WILL ADVANCE TO ROUND TWO!!
(The crowd cheers, quickly turning sour at the sound of ‘While She Sleeps’ by New World Torture, as Alex Myers ominously drags himself onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF SEATTLE, WASHINGTONNNN!!! WEIGHING IN AT 170 POOOUNNNDSSS, ALLLEXXXXXXX ‘THE FORGOTTEN MORTALLLLL’ MYEERRRSSSSSS!!!
(Crowd boos as Myers walks down the ramp and keeps a focused look on his face.)
James Peters: Stoic, as is typical for Alex Myers. We’ve come to expect that, but make no mistake about it, he’s arriving for blood. He’s arriving to punish his opponents and make this match as grueling as humanly possible. We know Myles is suffering from a bad concussion still after his match at Clash of Kingdoms, which doesn’t bode well for him. Alex fixates on weakness and he’ll put a bullseye on Myles’ concussion. He’ll show him no mercy, but how well can someone like him work with someone like-
(‘The Only Thing They Fear Is YOU’ by Mick Gordon interrupts the commentators as Ryan Wilson, a regretful and aggressive look on his face, walks onto the stage. He doesn’t dance or mock the crowd, he’s cold as ice tonight.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS TEAMMATE!!! WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNNDSSS!! WRESTLING OUT OF MONTREAL QUEBEC, CANADAAAAAA!!! RYANNNNNNN ‘THE KING OF QUEBEC STRONG STYLEEEE’ WILSONNNNNNNNN!!!!
(The crowd boos as he tries to block out the noise and make his way to the ring.)
James Peters: A different Wilson tonight. He promised to go onwards and upwards after that loss at Clash of Kingdoms, but he’s feeling the pressure right now. Being void of the title he coveted is shocking to him, you can expect Ryan to perform like his very life is on the line tonight. He wants to get back into the winning column and a tournament victory would be huge for him.
(Ryan takes his jacket off slowly and ‘High All The Time’ takes over the sound. Justin Windgate enthusiastically makes his way onto the stage and tells the crowd to get to their feet. He’s feeling the energy tonight.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF DETROIT, MICHIGANNNNN!!! WEIGHIN IN AT 225 POOOUNNNDSSSS!!!! JUSTTTINNNNNN ‘THE EXTREME CLASSIC’ WINDGATTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: Justin Windgate always brings extreme energy with him, but how well can he work with Myles tonight? A man who is part of New Eden, a man who stands alongside the man who nearly ended Justin’s career at Bloodsport. But Justin also has to know how much this tournament could do for his career right now, it could put him back on track to being a champion in EAW!
James Peters: A track that Drake King and New Eden put him off of.
(‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi plays Myles onto the stage, a bit more sluggish than is normal and Myles is visibly already in a considerable amount of pain.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS TEAMATE, WRESTLING OUT OF MELBOURNE, ASUTRALIAAAA!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 215 POUNDSSSSS!!!! ‘THE WARLORDDDDD’ MYLESSSSSSSSSS!!!!
(The crowd boos as Myles grabs his ribs and closes his eyes, taking a deep breath, he puts his arms to the side and walks down the ramp.)
James Peters: This man truly is a warrior. Territorial Invasion, loss to team Dynasty. Clash of Kingdoms, loss to Mr. DEDEDE, one that left him with a BAD concussion, now he’s still come to perform on Voltage. Like him, hate him, you can’t deny him. You can’t deny that he possesses the tough as nails spirit that we look for in EAW and that he is persevering through pain others wouldn’t. To win tonight would be so impressive and certainly give Myles a much needed confidence boost.
Rich Russillo: He doesn’t care about wins and losses you dork, he just wants to compete and make a statement for New Eden.
(Myles rolls into the ring and says he can start the match.)
DING! DING! DING!
James Peters: HERE WE GO! It’s gonna be Myles and Ryan Wilson to start this one out, look at Ryan! He charges out of the gates like a flood and pressures Myles back to his corner! Wilson immediately swarms Myles and keeps him in his corner! Justin Windgate tags himself in already and Myles isn’t happy at all!
Rich Russillo: They’re already in each other’s faces! Ryan grabs Myles by the hair and sends him over the top rope! Dumping Myles to the outside and he hits the floor, now it’s Justin Windgate into this early fray! He engages Wilson in a collar and elbow tie-up, Wilson being pushed back by Windgate- No! Ryan is able to muster up the strength to overpower Justin and start muscling him back! Ryan came with a purpose tonight!
Persephone: Should’ve done the same against Amir Pussyuf. Ryan’s efforts don’t mean shit when he fails to get the win in the end, who wants to always settle for being the “almost” guy?
Rich Russillo: I think that’s what he’s fighting against tonight! He knows a big win tonight puts him in the second round of this tournament and he’s not letting it slip through his fingers! Ryan puts Windgate into the corner and they have a clean break. I spoke too soon! Ryan lightly slaps Windgate and tells him to bring it on- BANG! WINDGATE WITH A SUPERKICK THAT FLOORED WILSON! HE TOLD HIM TO BRING IT AND MY GOD, JUSTIN WINDGATE BROUGHT MORE!
Persephone: HE WON’T LET IT SLIP THROUGH HIS FINGERS! LOOKS LIKE HIS TEETH ARE WHAT’S ABOUT TO SLIP THROUGH HIS FINGERS AFTER THAT KICK!
James Peters: Wilson floored and now trying to stumble back to Alex Meyers! Windgate grabs him by the belt and pulls him back to the center of the ring! He’s trying to set Ryan up for a sit-out facebuster! He’s got his back! No! Ryan Wilson able to launch a back elbow at Windgate- Justin ducks under it! Justin evades the counter-attack and rips Ryan to the canvas with a snap suplex! That one rattled the ring and Ryan’s spine simultaneously! Ryan rolls under the bottom rope and slaps the hand of Alex, here comes Alex Meyers!
James Peters: Alex Meyers vaults himself into the ring and charges towards Justin! Windgate throws another superkick his way, but Alex sidesteps him and shoves Windgate forward, Justin comes off the ropes and Alex grabs his back! German suplex from Myers and that dumps Windgate on his head! Justin gabs his neck and Alex Myers tries to continue the onslaught! He lifts Windgate back up- Windgate shoves him away and lands a nasty jab on the chin of Alex! That one stumbled him back and now Windgate pressures him back to the turnbuckles! Unloading hooks to the body, now going up to the head! Tyson-like hooks from Windgate!
Rich Russillo: Wilson back into the fray, he jumps onto the apron and steps into the ring- NO! Myles, out of nowhere! He grabs the leg of Wilson and yanks him back to the floor outside! Now grabbing him by the beard and hurling him head first into the barricade! Alex is able to grab Justin’s head and slam him face first into the middle turnbuckle! Now flying out of the corner with a slingblade that puts Justin Windgate down! Alex has Windgate down and now he eyes Myles on the outside, oh boy, HERE GOES ALEX MYERS!!
James Peters: ALEX MYERS WITH A SUICIDE DIVE THAT- NO!!!!
Rich Russillo: OH NO!!!!!
James Peters: MYLES NOTICED HIM AT THE LAST SECOND AND SIDESTEPPED THE SUICIDE DIVE! NOW IT’S GOTTA BE ALEX MYERS WHO HAS THE CONCUSSION BECAUSE HE SLAMMED HEAD FIRST INTO THAT BARRICADE! NOW MYLES ROLLS HIM BACK IN THE RING AND FRANTICALLY MAKES HIS WAY BACK ONTO THE APRON! MYLES IS CALLING FOR THE TAG! Windgate clutches at his neck and crawls over to Myles, he jumps to him and tags in the New Eden member!
Rich Russillo: Now it’s Myles back in the match! Myles slingshots into the ring and floors Myers again with a clothesline! He gets up and Myles puts him right back down! Two big clotheslines from ‘The Warlord’! Now he grabs the arms of Alex, TRYING TO RAM A KNEE INTO HIS CHIN- NO! ALEX CAUGHT THE KNEE AND NOW IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET! HE THROWS MYLES’ LEG TO THE CANVAS AND HEADBUTTS THE AUSTRALIAN BACK! MYLES DROPS TO A KNEE, REMEMBER HE HAS THAT CONCUSSION, THAT HEADBUTT JUST DID SO MUCH DAMAGE!
James Peters: What a warrior. To still be here fighting tonight! There’s no quit in Myles! But that doesn’t mean he isn’t feeling the effects of that concussion, he’s grabbing his head after that headbutt and trying to collect himself! Myles on his knees, Alex goes for a roundhouse kick to his chest! BANG! That boot slams off the chest of Myles, AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! REPEATED KICKS TO THE CHEST FROM ALEX MEYERS! NOW HE BOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND CHARGES TOWARDS MYLES-
Rich Russillo: A MASSIVE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE FROM MYLES! A JUMPING BICYCLE KNEE THAT SENT SPIT FLYING FROM ALEX’S MOUTH!
Persephone: EW! WHO KNOWS WHAT KIND OF DISEASES THAT LITTLE CREEP HAS! SOMEONE GET A WIPE AND SOME CLEANING CHEMICALS!
James Peters: ALEX IS OUT COLD AND NOW IT’S MYLES WHO HAS THE UPPERHAND! MYLES LIFTS ALEX UP AND GETS HIM INTO POWERBOMB POSITION! MYLES IS SO POWERFUL AND HE LIFTED ALEX UP LIKE HE WAS LITTLE KID! ALEX FIGHTING BACK WITH PUNCHES AND ELBOWS TO THE TOP OF MYLES’ HEAD! MYLES STUMBLES A BIT, OH MY, HE’S GONNA DROP MYERS! NO, MYLES FIGHTS THROUGH IT AND STARTS CHARGING ACROSS THE RING LIKE A MAN POSSESSED! A RUNNING SITOUT POWERBOMB SENDS ALEX MYERS CRASHING TO THE CANVAS AND MYLES GOES FOR THE PIN! MYLES FOR THE WIN!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! Alex Myers powers out of that crushing powerbomb from Myles, but Myles is right back to his feet! Myles lifts Myers up by the hair, NOW HOISTING HIM UP IN A CANADIAN RACK, OH BOY!!!! ‘THE WRATH OF PANDORA’ INCOMINGGGGG!!! HE’S GONNA FLIP MYERS OVER INTO THE DDT- BUT RYAN WILSON! WHERE DID HE EVEN COME FROM?!? RYAN WILSON BACK IN THE MIX, HE TAKES OUT MYLES KNEE AND HE DROPS DOWN TO ONE LEG, NOW WINDGATE RUSHES IN AND TACKLES RYAN THROUGH THE ROPES! THEY SPILL TO THE OUTSIDE AND THE BRAWL IS ON!!!
Persephone: YES! KILL EACH OTHER!!! DROP EACH OTHER YOUR NECKS ALREADY AND DIE!!
Rich Russillo: :mjwhat:
James Peters: :yikes: Alright then..
Persephone: LOOK IN THE RING! BOTH MEN TRYING TO REGAIN THEIR BALANCE, BUT ALEX DROPS A MASSIVE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ON THE CHIN OF MYLES! THAT ONE SENDS HIM FALLING AGAINST THE ROPES, NOW MYLES LEAPS BACK WITH A BICYCLE KICK TO THE FACE OF ALEX! THAT CONNECTION SOUNDED LIKE A GUNSHOT! ALEX WOBBLES AND TRIES TO GAIN HIS COMPOSURE, BUT MYLES CONTINUE THE- BOOM! ANOTHER HEADBUTT THAT DROPS MYLES STRAIGHT TO THE CANVAS! HE CRUMBLED AFTER THAT ONE AND IS LIFELESSLY STAINED AGAINST THE CANVAS!
Rich Russillo: Justin Windgate gets the better of Wilson and slams him back-first into the barricade! Then following up with a nasty punch that whipped Ryan’s head around! Just tries to throw Ryan again, but Wilson wises up to it! He delivers a thudding knee tot he ribs of Windgate and now shoots a nasty punch of his own! Now Ryan grabs the arm and flips Windgate over his hip and straight to that bare floor! Justin’s body slammed against the floor, NOW WILSON STARTS THROWING THRASHING ELBOWS ONTO THE SKULL OF WINDGATE! I THINK WINDGATE IS BLEEDING AND BLEEDING BAD AT THAT, BOTH MEN ARE NOW BEING COVERED IN THE RED BLANKET AS WILSON CONTINUES TO THROW THOSE SLASHING ELBOWS!!!
James Peters: HE DIDN’T COME TO LOSE TONIGHT, HE CAME TO MAKE THIS A DIRTY AND BLOODY FIGHT, ONE THAT HE’LL WIN!!!
Rich Russillo: LOOK AT THAT, IT ISN’T ONLY JUSTIN’S HEAD THAT’S BLEEDING! WILSON’S ELBOW IS BUSTED OPEN AFTER ALL OF THOSE HORRIFIC ELBOWS, BUT THE DAMAGE WAS DONE AND HE DOESN’T CARE! HE WIPES THE BLOOD AGAINST HIS OWN FACE AND SMILES AT JUSTIN WINDGATE! RYAN NOW ONCE MORE SURGES TOWARDS WINDGATE- OOOO!! A SPINNING HEEL KICK STOPPED RYAN IN HIS TRACKS AS JUSTIN BURIED THAT KICK IN WILSON’S ABDOMEN! NOW WINDGATE RUNS TOWARDS RYAN AND DROPKICKS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE WITH SO MUCH FORCE!!!
James Peters: THAT BARRICADE WOBBLED, BUT TI STAYED UP- WAIT, BUT FOR HOW LONG?!?! JUSTIN WINDGATE WALKS TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AND EYES THE RECOVERING WILSON! WILSON JUST BARELY UP TO HIS FEET, HERE COMES JUSTIN WINDGATE!!! RUNNING ACROSS THE RINGSIDE AREA AND NOW SPEARING RYAN WILSON THROUGH THE BARRICCADDDEEEEEEE!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!
Rich Russillo: THE BARRICADE CAME CRASHING DOWN UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THOSE MEN, LOOK BACK IN THE RING NOW, ALEX MYERS KNEES MYLES IN THE GUT AND THEN SHOVES HIM BACKWARDS, INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! HE COMES IN AFTER HIM, BUT MYLES STICKS A BOOT IN HIS FACE, TRYING TO KICK MYERS! NO! IT DOESN’T CONNECT, ALEX CAUGHT IT AND THREW AN ELBOW OF HIS OWN INTO THE NOSE OF MYLES! THIS TEAM LOVES THEIR RAZOR SHARP ELBOWS!
James Peters: Now Myers perches Myles on the top rope, HE WANTS TO DROP MYLES FROM THE VERY TOP! WITH MYLES’ CONCUSSION, SURELY THIS WOULD BE THE END OF THE MATCH! THIS MAY BE THE END OF MYLES’ SEASON AS WE KNOW IT!!! ALEX MYERS HAS MYLES UP, TRYING TO STAND HIM UP ON THAT TOP ROPE!! MYLES IS FIGHTING THIS, BUT MYERS IS DETERMINED TO RIP HIM DOWN FROM THE SKY! MYLES WITH PUNCHES TO THE RIBS AND T|NOW TO THE HEAD, BUT ALEX HEADBUTTS MYLES AGAIN, THAT HAS BEEN HIS ACE IN THE HOLE TONIGHT, AGAINST THE CONCUSSED MYLES!
Rich Russillo: NOW MYERS GETS ONE ARM HOOKED, MYLES FIGHTING DESPERTAELY! HE’S GETTING CLOSER TO THE EDGE! MYLES FIRES BACK WITH A HEADBUTT OF HIS OWN, BUT THAT HURT HIM JUST AS MUCH! HE JUST HAS NO CHOICE, HE’S DOING ANYTHING TO SAVE HIMSELF RIGHT NOW, BUT IT’S TO NO EVAIL!!!! OH MY GOD, MYERS GOT HIM, HE’S GOT THE SINGLE UNDERHOOK AND HE SUPERPLEXES MYLES FROM THE TOP ROPE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE CANVASSSS!!! A THUNDEROUS AND RING RATTLING SUPERPLEX THAT RAGDOLLED MYLES’ BODY!!! ALEX MYERS RIPPED MYLES DOWN AND SLAMMED HIM AGAINST THE CANVAS, NOW ALEX ROLLS THROUGH AND STILL GRABS THE NECK OF MYLES, OH MY GOD, HE’S GOT A GUILLOTINE IN! HE’S THROWN THE GUILLOTINE IN AND MYLES IS CAUGHT!!
Persephone: ANOTHER L FOR THE RECORD, MYLES!
James Peters: MYLES IS CAUGHT DEEP IN THAT GUILLOTINE! HE’S FIGHTING TO GET OUT, BUT MYERS HAS IT IN TIGHT! MYLES IS FADING, STRUGGLING TO HANG ON! JUSTIN WINDGATE ROLLS BACK IN THE RING AND ALEX LETS GO OF MYLES, MEETING JUSTIN WITH A HARD FOREARM AND THEN THROWING HIM ASIDE! HE JUMPS BACK ON MYLES WITH THE GUILLOTINE- BUT MYLES HAS ENOUGH TIME TO GET TO HIS FEET AND POSTURE OUT OF IT! HE SHOVES ALEX OFF AND MYLES IS UP! WOW! WE SAW IT AT UFC 267 WHEN ALEXANDER VOLKANOVSKI ESCAPED BRIAN ORTEGA’S GUILLOTINE, THESE AUSTRALIANS JUST WON’T BE CHOKED OUT! THEY WON’T TAP AND THEY WON’T GO TO SLEEP! THE TOUGHNESS OF MYLES IS SOMETHING TO BEHOLD!
Rich Russillo: TOUGH AS NAILS FOR SURE! BUT YOU KNOW HE’S TAKING YEARS OFF HIS LIFE, FIGHTING WITH THIS TERRIBLE CONCUSSION! MYLES NOW LEANING AGAINST THE ROPES, WAIT, RYAN WILSON IS BACK! HE GRABS MYLES IN A SLEEPER HOLD AND HAS HIM TRAPPED AGAINST THE ROPES! NOW MYERS STARTS KICKING AWAY AT THE STOMACH OF MYLES! THE REFEREE WARNS THEM BUT THESE TWO ARE LIKE HYENAS PICKING AT MYLES LIVING BODY! THIS IS DISGUSTING!!
James Peters: MYERS TAGS IN WILSON AND NOW THEY BOTH ARE IN THE RING! MYERS HOISTS MYLES UP AND WILSON CALLS FOR- WINDGATE COMES OFF THE TOP ROPE AND THROWS MYERS OUT OF THE RING WITH A SPRINGBOARD HURRICANRANA! OH MY GOD, WHAT A MOVE FROM WINDGATE, DISPLAYING HIS SUPER-HUMAN ABILITIES AND ATHLETICISM! MYERS DROPPED MYLES TO THE CANVAS AND NOW WINDGATE PUSHES WILSON INTO THE CORNER! BEATING HIM UP WITH PUNCHES, UNTIL WILSON IS FINALLY ABLE TO DUCK UNDER A PUNCH AND GET BEHIND WINDGATE, DIVING NECKBREAKER FROM RYAN!!!
Rich Russillo: RYAN WITH A DIVING NECKBREAKER AND HE FALLS BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AS WINDGATE STUMBLES AROUND TO A CROUCHED POSITION! WILSON SEES THIS CHANCE- NO!!!! MYLES COMES SPRINTING ACROSS THE RING AND LEAPS OFF THE BACK OF THE CROUCHED WINDGATE! FLYING THROUGH THE AIR AND BURYING A KNEE INTO RYAN WILSON’S SKULL! THAT DIVING KNEE THAT NEARLY SENT MYLES FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE JUST SPLATTERED RYAN’S POOR DENTAL WORK ALL OVER THE RINGSIDE AREA!!!

WINDGATE SLICES ALEX MYERS IN HALF AND HE’S ROLLING! JUSTIN WINDGATE SENSES THE FINISH AND HE’S ABOUT TO FIND IT! WINDGATE LIFTS RYAN BACK UP, HE’S GOT HIM- NO! RYAN ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR AND ROLLS INTO THE CORNER-
James Peters: BANG! HE’S MET WITH AN ENZEGUIRI FROM MYLES! A BOOT TO THE FACE AND NOW JUSTIN WINDGATE SWEEPS THE LEG! HE PUTS WILSON DOWN WITH AN EXCLAMATION POINT BEHIND IT AND NOW PUTS HIS HANDS TO HIS FACE, HE LOOKS LIKE HE’S PRETENDING TO LIGHT A JOINT!

(‘Enemy Strike begins to play as both Myles and Justin Windgate pull themselves to their feet.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS!!!!! MYLESSSS AND JUSTINNNNN WINDGATTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(The crowd gives a mixed reaction, cheers for Justin and boos for Myles, as the two men have their arms raised by the referee. The two look towards one another, a bit satisfied knowing that the match went their way.)
Rich Russillo: My word, what a war! These two teams left it all out there tonight, both worked together and both had their moments of shine! But in the end, Myles and Windgate were able to preserve through the punishment and grab the victory! They’ll advance to the next round of this tag team turmoil tournament!
(Myles leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, a stoic, yet introspective look across his face, while Windgate stands atop the ropes and celebrates.)
James Peters: You said it best, this was a war. Wilson and Myers brought the fight to them tonight and even after a tough loss at Clash of Kingdoms, Ryan Wilson battled like a title was on the line and showed the heart he always does. Like him or not, he always wrestles with 100 percent, which is something to commend.
Rich Russillo: That’s true, but man, how tough is Myles? He suffered a bad concussion against Mr. DEDEDE and also lost his match at Clash of Kingdoms, yet still wrestled a punishing match tonight. From Territorial Invasion to now, Myles hasn’t let off the gas. My God, say what you want about him and New Eden, but that resolve is incredible, he truly is built different. It takes so much conviction and toughness to continue to compete in these matches back to back and he’ll have another one with Justin Windgate soon, so get used to it!
(Myles gives one last look to Windgate, who stares him down with pretty much no reaction. Myles gives him no reaction either, and instead just walks backstage.)
James Peters: Thank you folks for sticking with us through another amazing episode of Voltage, we’ll return next week with more action and more answers to the questions that arose tonight! What a night it’s been, thank you!
(The pyro shoots off around Windgate and he waves to the crowd, the shot fades to black as the crowd’s cheers turn silent.)
