Serena and Viz win, and the recap ends with Ms. Extreme and Serena Bennett’s staredown.)
(As Voltage’s signature intro music begins playing, the camera shows all of the virtual fans in attendance in the World 1 Theatre. As the cheering continues the camera finally cuts to the commentary table, featuring James Peters, Rich Russillo and Persephone all standing in front of the camera.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Sunday Night Voltage! Road to Redemption is inching closer and closer, and our Extreme Elimination Chambers are starting to fill up! I am James Peters, and as always with me are Rich Russillo and Persephone!
Rich Russillo: This is sure to be a fantastic night, especially now that we know who’s going to be competing in the Specialists Chamber now! This is going to be a great night I can just feel it. After all, we have a Champion versus Champion match headlining the show!
Persephone: The worst World Champ in the company versus some trash tag Champ. How does that excite anyone?
(The scene fades into the ‘Cloth Talk’ segment already decked out inside the squared circle. This time, he’s got the golden coffee table that stands in the middle of the ring, the leopard couch – which may or may not be – made out of REAL leather. PETA may need to investigate that. :lupe: The golden spotlight is placed directly in front of REVOLT! legend himself, Talib Bari, as he looks like the handsome golden god that he is. He is wearing his golden tracksuit and leopard Jordans that are specially made for him and all of his glory. He looks super extra, but people have realized that you’re only going to get extra from this man and they don’t mind that at all. He’s got a golden microphone in his hand as he looks around the virtual crowd around him.)
Talib Bari: Come on, give me some love!
(The virtual crowd does that and gives some cheers for Talib Bari.)
Talib Bari: It’s been a while since I’ve seen all of you. I am super happy to be back in EAW after quarantining for about a thousand years. With the lack of calls of EAW about ‘Cloth Talk,’ I almost thought that it was their way of firing me. Each time that I got a phone call from New Jersey, I was like: ‘:krabs:,’ but it ended up being shit about wanting to get solar panels on my roof like I don’t got them already. I also got text from random numbers in New Jersey being like: ‘Hey Adolfo, have you voted in the upcoming election?’ and I’m like: :skip: who the fuck is Adolfo? Yeah, it’s been a bit lonely, but I’ve been keeping up with EAW as much as I can. Some crazy shit has happened while I was gone, but I was waiting for the call. When they finally called me, I was more than happy because I’ve been waiting for my time to make my presence felt, sparkle a little pizzazz here and there for the Voltage brand, but I didn’t want to be a pushover. Captain Charisma knows that I love him like a brother and that he wouldn’t do me dirty like that.
Talib Bari: We’re heading towards the end of the year. Road to Redemption is in about four weeks from now and people are being inserted into Chambers. People getting title shots left and right, but tonight, we’re going to discuss the Specialists Chamber. We got a ton of beautiful bitches already announced for the match. From Candice Blair to Nina Bravo to Thicclow Reichert, this is going to be a lit match to be talking about. We even got fine ladies like Alexis Chambers, who are going to make things tough for our Specialists Champion, who once again, will be walking into their first defense for the second year in a row. Now, to get some of her thoughts on the entire thing. Let’s bring out the Specialists Champion herself, ‘Miss Mayhem,’… KASEY KAOS!!!!!!
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson blasts through the spears of the World 1 Theatre as she walks out with the Specialists Championship on her shoulder. Kasey is dressed in her gear for her match against Candice Blair later tonight. She is grinning sinister as she makes her way down the ring.)
James Peters: Here is our Specialists Champion, who decided to make her presence felt with Candice Blair last week on Voltage. The confrontation with the two of them ended with Nina Bravo and Lisa Wren getting their words and actions in, but it was Lisa who was the last standing in that confrontation.
Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos can’t be focusing on Lisa Wren getting the best of her. She has a match against Candice Blair, who is looking to knock the champion off her game.
Persephone: Honestly, if she’s not going to say anything of importance, we might as well move on with the ‘Cloth Talk’ show.
(Kasey Kaos is already in the ring as she manages to get her hands on one of the microphones on the golden coffee table, which are laid out for the participants in this segment. ‘Cry Little Sister’ dies down as the crowd gives Kasey a mixed reception. Kasey is looking across from Talib Bari, who looks a little freaked out by the presence of the Specialists Champion. Kasey walks up closer to Talib, almost sizing him up and not holding back her stare.)
Kasey Kaos: Thank you for having us, Talib.
(Talib Bari is a little freaked out at the moment, but tries his best not to show him. Kasey Kaos is more terrifying in person than she is in her matches.)
Talib Bari: Alright, let’s get all of this talk started, shall we? Next, let’s bring out the woman who EARNED her spot inside the Chamber at Wicked Games. She managed to step into the Chamber as a rookie and make it the final three. She’s looking to redeem herself from that. Ladies and gentlemen.. ‘The Hot Commodity’ … CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!
(‘Diva’ by Beyoncé plays through the speakers as the crowd seems to give her somewhat a decent pop. Candice Blair walks out in her ring gear, more than ready for her match later tonight. She is kissing the crowd before posing as she goes down to the ramp and heads towards the ring.)
Rich Russillo: After defeating Kensingten Calhoun-Astor at Wicked Games, Captain Charisma announced that Candice Blair would be the first entrant in the Specialists Chamber match and to be honest, there’s no arguing with that. From her performance in the Chamber last year, I think that it would be amazing to see how much Candice has grown since that match.
Persephone: I’m not opposed to her ruining that pretty face of her’s. It could use an adjustment or two.
James Peters: If there is anyone that could pose as a threat to Kasey, I would say that Candice could be it, but there’s no denying that Kasey is going to do what she can to retain the title and prove that she’s more than worthy to hold the title on her shoulder.
(Candice Blair is seen inside the ring as she grabs a microphone from the golden coffee table. ‘Diva’ dies down as she manages to shake hands with Talib Bari, who seems more than relaxed now that she’s inside the ring.)
Talib Bari: It seems like you recovered well from the fireball accident of last week?
Candice Blair: It’s the power of makeup, Talib. The same thing that took me hours to do before Kasey ruined my work. 🙄
Talib Bari: Seems like the incident never happened. :notbad:
Kasey Kaos: Candice is quite talented in hiding the scars and bruises on her face. She’s amazing at hiding all of the hurt in her eyes. She’s amazing at keeping the things that she wants hidden from the world, but she can’t hide anything from us. No my little pretty, whatever you manage to keep tucked in and hidden from the world, we’ll be able to find it and reveal it for the world to see. One of those things that you’ve kept hidden is the truth – the truth that you don’t deserve to hold the championship on our shoulder. You don’t deserve to step inside the Chamber when I am the champion that you need to dethrone. Your wonderful performance in last year’s Chamber? It means nothing. It means nothing to us. It doesn’t matter if you learned from your mistakes from last year, but that doesn’t make you immune from making new mistakes. It doesn’t mean that you’ll be making zero mistakes going into the match. New Chamber, new champion and new mistakes to be made. It’s all so very exciting to us and we’ll be looking forward to seeing what you throw at us, my pretty.
Candice Blair: People have said that I should be afraid of you, Kasey. I should be afraid of the power that you possess. It was one of the factors that crowned you the Specialists Champion and it could be beneficial going into the Chamber, but I’m not. I’m not afraid, but I’m weirded out by what you dished out to me last week. I’m aware that it may or may not be the same thing that you’ll bring to our match, but it’s something that I have to be prepared for. Going into this match, I can sense that you’re overlooking me a bit, Kasey. You’re underestimating what I have to offer and that’s your mistake that you need to fix before it costs you the Specialists Championship. It’s the mistake that all of the Chamber participants need to stop making unless they wanna be the first person eliminated in this match. That’s not going to be me for sure because I know how great I am. I know how gorgeous I am. I know how much of a threat I can be if pushed to that. Is that something that you’re prepared for, Kasey? If not, you better hurry because the woman that you claim is ‘not good enough’ to take your title away from you, is going to steal that championship from underneath your nose.
Kasey Kaos: You don’t need to worry about us, my pretty. We’ll be prepared for the dangerous match than an Extreme Elimination Chamber brings to all of us. Unfortunately for you, you’ve set yourself on the WRONG championship. As long as I’m champion, you’re not going to be the one that takes the title away from us. You, along with everyone, can scream and shout their reason for why they should be the Specialists Champion, but they won’t manage to pull this entire thing off and take this title from us. Instead, it will just be another promise that was broken to those, who expected better of them.
Candice Blair: I don’t fulfill expectations, I exceed them.
Kasey Kaos: Why don’t we put that to the test now?
(The virtual crowd cheers at the possibility of Candice Blair versus Kasey Kaos taking place now, but Talib Bari stands in the middle of them, trying to regain control of his talk show.)
Talib Bari: Ladies, save the energy for your match later tonight. We still got a few more women that we wanna bring out here. Next, we got the woman who spent the first few years of her presence in EAW as the lovely assistant of the World Heavyweight Champion, The Visual Prophet, but now, she’s looking to establish herself as a wrestler and possibly a Specialists Champion in her own right. Ladies and gentlemen…’The Russian Doll’…NINA BRAVO!!!!
(‘Come Thru’ by Summer Walker featuring Usher plays through the speakers as the crowd gives a nice pop to Nina Bravo, who comes out quite bubbly and more than ready to kick ass inside the ring.)
James Peters: Here comes the former assistant to the World Heavyweight Champion, The Visual Prophet, Nina Bravo is someone who has been climbing up the ranks on Dynasty. She has victories over Veena Adams and a former New Breed Champion in Jalyn Garcia, but this is her biggest opportunity to date and she’s not looking to have it slip out of her fingers.
Rich Russillo: She doesn’t have the experience like some of these women in the match, but with the lack of experience, she makes it up with heart and fighting spirit that is going to take her far in EAW.
Persephone: Is she ready for a match like this? Bitch can barely speak English. How can we expect her to understand what the hell is going on in this match?
James Peters: I trust for her to be on her A-game during the match, but I’m excited to hear what she has to say about the entire thing.
(Nina Bravo winks at Talib Bari before getting a microphone from the golden coffee table. She stands across Candice Blair and Kasey Kaos before ‘Come Thru’ fades. The crowd is showing a little love for Nina, who makes her smile proudly.)
Nina Bravo: Как дела, все? (In translation: what’s up, everyone?)
(The crowd has no fucking idea what she’s saying, but they cheer anyway as Nina Bravo still maintains that shining smile on her face.)
Kasey Kaos: Приятно тебе появиться. (In translation: it’s nice for you to show up.)
Nina Bravo: Пора меня вывести. Я не мог больше ждать. (In translation: It was about time that I was brought out. I couldn’t wait longer.)
Kasey Kaos: Не собираюсь врать, но мне стало скучно ее слушать. (In translation: not going to lie, but I was getting bored with listening to her.) *nudging her head towards Candice Blair*
(Nina Bravo chuckles as Candice Blair seems a little steamed, despite not understanding what any of the women are saying about her.)
Nina Bravo: Я не виню вас, но это ничем не отличается от того, что я собираюсь вам сказать. (In translation: I don’t blame you, but it’s nothing different from what I am going to say to you.)
Talib Bari: Yo, I don’t understand what the fuck y’all are saying, but I love for you to specific on what’s being said.
Nina Bravo: Well Talib, what Nina said can be said in a million ways — I will win. Nina Bravo will not be amused to all of the catty and pettiness that this Specialists Chamber will bring out of us. I do not want my time wasted, Talib. I want to go out there, wrestle and become NEW Specialists Champion.
(Nina Bravo pauses as she looks over at Kasey Kaos, who seems intrigued by what Nina is saying.)
Nina Bravo: People will count out Nina. People will overlook Nina, but that would be big mistake by my opponents. No one should overlook, beautiful, fit and intelligent Russian Doll that I am. I am woman, who is breaded to be future champion in EAW. I took lazy Andrea Valentine to her limit. I got victory over Veena Adams and her stupid American self in Flag match. I wiped the floor with Jalyn Garcia. I get FPV victory after FPV victory and no one deserves a shot at Specialists Championship than Nina. I am undefeated in big shows. Road to Redemption is another night where Nina Bravo will remain undefeated and she does so as champion. I am surrounded by stupid American white girl Candice Blair, who is not as pretty as Nina and not as deserving of this opportunity like Nina. Then, we have Alexis Chambers, who always cries for no reason. You have Harlow Reichert, who doesn’t give a fuck about anything. You have Kasey Kaos, who speak the language of Nina, but she hasn’t faced anyone like Nina. She hasn’t faced anyone as talented as Nina. I am a different breed. I was trained by current World Heavyweight Champion. I am a winner. I am going to win Specialists Champion and be Specialists Champion!
Talib Bari: Thank you for specifying that, Nina. Let’s move on —
???: Okay, I’m done waiting in the back!
(Lisa Wren doesn’t need any introduction. Each time that step steps out, people’s eyes go towards her. Lisa has a bunch of fire in her eyes. She is in her ring gear, more than ready for her match against Nina Bravo tonight.)
Lisa Wren: I don’t get why we’re debating on who’s going to win the Specialists Chamber when it’s going to be me. It’s not going to be Kasey. It’s not going to be Candice. It’s definitely not going to be Nina. It’s going to be me, Lisa Wren. I’ve been starving for an opportunity like this. There’s no argument when I state that I deserve better than what I’ve gotten since my debut. Are you really going to shaft a beautiful and powerful black woman like myself for a generic Barbie doll like Candice Blair, who isn’t nearly half the talent that I am? You and your family rubs me the wrong way, Candice. All of them are constantly looking for ways to break out of the molds of women’s wrestling and are the biggest problem in this company and other women wanting to be like them. Couldn’t be me. Then, we have Kasey Kaos, who is nothing more than an edgy cac, who caters to the emo and depressed side of the EAW Universe. Someone, who has been REAL cozy with MY Specialists Championship. I should have been a part of that Specialists Tournament and if I was, there’s no doubt that I would be standing as the Specialists Champion. Then, we have Nina over here, who can barely form a coherent sentence. Just hearing her try to speak in English was a giant headache.
(Kasey Kaos, Candice Blair and Nina Bravo are not clearly impressed with Lisa Wren and what she has to say.)
Lisa Wren: Who else am I missing? Oh yeah, bring out the two cacs from Showdown who got added to this match last night. I know they’re in the back listening to everything that’s going on inside the ring. Ladies, get your asses here, so I can say this shit to your face. If you’re not coming out, I’ll go find you and lay you out —
???: Am I supposed to be intimidated by you, Lisa?
(Alexis Chambers comes out as she instantly finds herself booed by the virtual EAW Universe. Alexis already has a microphone in her hand as she walks down the ring. Candice Blair is not amused to see Alexis whatsoever and most likely, it has something to do with Alexis’ comments about her at Reasonable Doubt.)
Alexis Chambers: You really think that anyone in this match is scared of you? Come on, you’re the biggest joke in this match, Lisa. You reek of first elimination. Your only purpose in this match is to be eliminated by me. I wasn’t expecting to be placed in this Specialists Chamber, but that’s what happens when your girlfriend’s connection with the Showdown General Manager and contributing to him remaining in power comes along. It was a no brainer that I found myself in this match after being robbed of a chance to fight for the Specialists Championship, thanks to Veena Adams. Now, I get to right the wrong. Eliminate a couple of untalented bitches along the way and then, walk out of Road to Redemption as the NEW Specialists Champion. It’s something that I am REALLY looking forward to as my year ends in a more positive note than I had hoped for. I had big hopes going into this year. I wanted for everyone to see me as this amazing person, who only wants to make everyone around her happy. I was nice to everyone. I gave everyone the kindness I wished they would have given me in return and instead of giving me the kindness, they decided to jump on the ‘hate Alexis bandwagon.’ Apparently, it’s so cool to hate on Alexis. I did nothing to deserve that bullshit, but I’ll give something for people to hate when I become Specialists Champion.
Nina Bravo: Typical American. Thinking that the entire world should love her. 🙄
Alexis Chambers: Excuse me?
Kasey Kaos: Poor little Alexis, she just wants to be loved. She is not getting the love that she’s entitled to, but she needs to realize that she’s a dead woman walking. Out of everyone in the ring so far… *Kasey touches a strand of Alexis’ hair, who stumbles back* We are looking forward to choking the life out of you the most and leaving you for dead.
Alexis Chambers: Why does everyone hate me? :noah: I don’t understand that hate against me, but I’m not afraid of any of you. There’s no need to call me ‘little Alexis’ because I’ll be able to handle myself fine in the Chamber.
Talib Bari: This ring is filling up quite fine, but we got one more competitor that we need to bring out.
(The virtual crowd knows exactly who Talib Bari is talking about.)
Talib Bari: The last competitor in the Specialists Chamber is a woman who time after time again has proven that she is more than capable of handling herself in these major matches. Yeah, she’s not really Gucci about these types of matches, but she had a hell of a performance at House of Glass, so we can only expect great things from her at Road to Redemption! Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome ‘Miss No Fucks Given’ … HARLOW REICHERT!!!!!!
(‘Eye of the Tiger’ by New Found Glory plays through the speakers as the crowd gives a standing ovation for Harlow Reichert, who may or may not happy to be part of Voltage, home of all the hardcore and extra matches, but she’s smirking at the crowd’s reception of her before she makes her way down the the ring.)
James Peters: The former PURE Champion, one of the best pure wrestlers that we have in the company, but as we saw at House of Glass, Harlow Reichert is more than capable of holding herself in these hardcore stipulations. Last night on Showdown, she was looking to get her hands and knock Andrea Valentine down to earth, but it seems like that’s going to wait as General Manager Ryan Wilson added her to this Specialists Chamber.
Rich Russillo: I wonder what Harlow thinks about this opportunity? I don’t think this match was in her radar whatsoever. I think that she wants her revenge on Andrea rather than be part of this clusterfuck of a match, but that’s just me.
Persephone: Harlow Reichert doesn’t give a fuck. Any opportunity to prove that she’s an amazing wrestler she’s going to take. It was an opportunity that she wasn’t expecting, but she’s not going to deny a chance to be Specialists Champion.
(Harlow Reichert is inside the ring as she gets one of the microphones from the golden coffee table. ‘Eye of the Tiger’ dies down as she’s feeling the love of the crowd. She scouts her competition as she last looks at the Specialists Champion herself. Kasey Kaos is looking at Harlow with a slight intrigue as Harlow begins her promo.)
Harlow Reichert: I was not expecting to find myself in ANY Chamber match at Road to Redemption. Everyone is aware of my feelings towards these hardcore matches. The Extreme Elimination Chamber is something that shortens the careers of everyone in the match. It was the same thing with the Red Wallz match at House of Glass. With my dislike of these types of matches, people will jump to conclusions about me not being able to hang in these types of matches, but from what people saw of my performance at House of Glass, I CAN hang in these types of stipulations and I can hang with some of the best wrestlers on the planet. I took Serena Bennett to her limit, but I have three victories over former World Champions in 2020 — one of them being our ‘great’ Chairman, but much like his loss at Pain for Pride, he would rather forget that ever happened, but I’m always here to remind people of that. 😏 Now, I can see the narrative that will be made of me ‘Harlow Reichert doesn’t give a fuck about being a champion,’ and much like Serena, that would be your biggest mistake when it comes to facing me. Despite me being called ‘Miss No Fucks Given,’ I’m all about stepping inside the ring and proving that I’m one of the best wrestlers in the world. It’s difficult to do that in a structure such as an Extreme Elimination Chamber, but like House of Glass, it will be difficult to get me eliminated from the match. If you want me out of this match, you’re going to need to kill me.
Kasey Kaos: Be careful with what you wish for Harlow, you just might get it —
(Kasey Kaos hits Harlow Reichert with a microphone! Before you know it, Candice Blair goes after Nina Bravo! Alexis Chambers goes after Lisa Wren! Three different brawls have erupted inside the ring as Talib Bari gets his beautiful golden coffee table out of the way, lifting it over his head before getting the hell out of the ring.)
Rich Russillo: THE SPECIALISTS CHAMBER PARTICIPANTS HAVE BROKEN LOOSE!!!!!!
Persephone: Alexis Chambers goes right after Candice Blair, nailing her with FOH — shining wizard, but Candice is able to intercept that before getting Alexis in position before applying a Candy Lock on Alexis! The inverted figure four as Alexis is tapping out!
James Peters: MEANWHILE, YOU HAVE NINA BRAVO WHO MANAGES TO IRISH WHIP LISA WREN INTO THE CORNER! NINA RUNS TOWARDS LISA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A METEORA, BUT LISA MANAGES TO JUMP AND SIT HERSELF ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS SHE MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A HURRICANRANA AS THAT TAKES DOWN NINA! NINA MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN LISA WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT LISA DOES A MATRIX INVASION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A PELE KICK TO NINA’S FACE! LISA GETS NINA BEFORE SHE CONNECTS WITH HER FINISHER, A STANDING PENDULUM ELBOW DROP TO NINA BRAVO!
Rich Russillo: THAT ROLLS NINA BRAVO OUT OF THE RING AS HARLOW REICHERT MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN LISA WREN WITH A LES MISERABLES — THE FLYING KNEE UNDERNEATH THE CHIN OF LISA BEFORE HARLOW TAKES HER DOWN WITH A TWISTER, BUT CANDICE BLAIR OUT OF NOWHERE, CONNECTS WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT INTO A DOUBLE KNEE STRIKE, TAKING DOWN THOSE TWO WOMEN, BUT ALEXIS CHAMBERS MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A LIGHTS OUT — SUPERKICK TAKES DOWN CANDICE! HARLOW GETS TO HER FEET AS ALEXIS CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER SUPERKICK, BUT HARLOW MANAGES TO DUCK BEFORE THE SUPERKICK NAILS LISA WREN, KNOCKING HER DOWN! HARLOW RISES TO HER FEET AND WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND ALEXIS’ WAIST BEFORE GOING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX AS ALEXIS CHAMBERS IS THROWN ACROSS THE RING!
Persephone: KASEY KAOS NAILS HARLOW REICHERT WITH THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! HARLOW ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!!!!
James Peters: Candice Blair sees Alexis Chambers rising to her feet as she nails Alexis with a giant knee strike as she rolls out of the ring!
(The only two women standing inside the ring are Candice Blair and the Specialists Champion, Kasey Kaos. The two women stare at each other as Kasey raises the Specialists Championship above her head. Candice smirks as she rolls herself out of the ring and walks up the ramp. Kasey has an intense look on her face as business between them will be settled in their match later tonight.)
(Commercial for Jake Smith’s new weight loss program. Be careful though, there’s a good chance you might get a bit shorter under this program. After all Jake still thinks he’s 6 feet tall.)
(‘Warrior’s Code’ by the Dropkick Murphys kicked in. Eddie Magnum enters the ring with a look of a serious competitor. He showed dominance at the last Showdown, beating Bashar Jackson and Mr. Business in a memorable tag team bout and he is here to keep the energy going.)
Bella Braxton: This singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!! Introducing t first, from Boston, Massachusetts. Weighing in at 213 pounds, he is The Real Deal… EDDIE MAGNUM!!!!!
Rich Russillo: After having a thunderous win with the assistance of Azrael last week, Eddie Magnum is making sure that he’s not going to go anywhere below from now on!
Persephone: It was just a tag team bout and he wasn’t even the one pinning. I doubt that this man should be proud of his ‘win’.
James Peters: With the assistance sounds like you’re accusing him of using Azrael to win against his opponents, which he didn’t. He helped his partner deal with Mr. Business while Azrael does the job against Bashar Jackson.
Persephone: The thug? Give me a break.
Rich Russillo: He is still coming off a hot streak, maybe he could even beat his opponent tonight, which is probably unlikely.
Persephone: And people called me out for being negative.
James Peters: Eddie might stand a chance tonight, but his opponent got a heart that is as big as a tank!
(‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy starts echoing. The crowd begins cheering as Donovan Duke, Eddie Magnum’s opponent makes his way out to the stage, and before long he makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring, not wanting to waste any time. He is ready for tonight. All fresh! He is here to prove that he is worthy of holding the New Breed championship since literally he’s facing Andre Walker for the title.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Stillwater, Oklahoma, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is the Oklahoma Gentleman, DONOVAN DUKE!!
Rich Russillo: Speaking of his opponent, Donovan Duke never disappoints when it comes to matches because he is athletic as hell!
James Peters: He won’t be the number 1 contender without the skill that he has.
Persephone: Wasn’t he like a simp before?
Rich Russillo: At Wicked Games, he did try to help Lisa Wren but it’s because he is a normal human being.
Persephone: It’s every man for thems- nevermind.
James Peters: Now, he is on his way to show Andre Walker what he has in store.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke with a quick dropkick sending his opponent to the ropes, Eddie ran to the ropes and Donovan charged and attacked him with a quick Lariat! He grabbed the head of The Real Deal but Eddie went with a nicely executed Jawbreaker sending Duke to the right corner. Eddie with a Stingers Splash attempt, got thrown to the outside but he landed on the steps standing, Donovan Duke didn’t see it, DIVING CROSSBODY!!!! Now, Eddie went with a quick headlock, trying to put Duke under pressure as Duke is seen struggling to find a way to escape. They went up and Duke stood up, breaking up the submission as they went with a lockup again, this time going for Duke’s assistance. Duke with a couple of punches to the head of Eddie Magnum before sending him to the turnbuckle.
James Peters: Eddie grabbed his own face, checking on himself but Donovan was fast with that Stingers Splash sending him down to one corner, Donovan with a Cannonball but Eddie ran out at the right time! Eddie quickly gets a hold, German Suplex to Donovan Duke! Duke bounced off to the turnbuckle as Eddie went with multiple chops before going on the opposite side, corner dropkick! Snapmare and a kick to the back of Duke’s head sending him unconscious. Eddie with a fast headlock but Duke quickly broke it up and delivered a kick to Eddie’s guts. Eddie grabbed it and Duke with an elbow sending him to the ropes and he’s holding the rope in desperation.
Persephone: This guy is going to compete against Andre Walker while looking like this?
Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke tried to send him out but he landed on his own two feet on the apron, Eddie Magnum flies and a Hurricanrana is done but Duke got him with a rollup, 1, 2, kick out from Magnum and he tried to kick Duke’s face but Duke ducked, and a Kip Up and staredown for both men! Well, technically only Duke did the kip up, the staredown was the hot topic. They are still testing each other out with that test of strength, Duke got a hold, Eddie throws him to the ropes, he ran and Eddie with that fast Lariat, countered as Duke ducked and went with a Northern Lariat which is literally just a reverse lariat! Duke went to go for Eddie Magnum’s leg and he went with a single leg crab! He was having control over his opponent but after some minutes of crawling, Eddie Magnum managed to get out of the hold and he survived.
James Peters: Donovan Duke still grabbed Eddie Magnum’s leg and Eddie Magnum fell flat on his own face. Duke used this opportunity to throw him out of the ring. Duke throws him out and he still holds in, Duke ran but Eddie grabbed the ropes down and Donovan Duke flew outside of the ring! Eddie Magnum took this opportunity and the Tope Con Hilo was done sending Duke down! Eddie Magnum quickly got his head and threw him to the steps but he managed to stand there, Magnum went front a little bit, Duke got him, REVERSE HURRICANRANA! Duke throws Magnum back into the ring. It looks like Duke wants to attempt the Moonsault faster. However, he is too focused on the virtual crowd right now, giving them taunts and flexing his skills. Eddie Magnum got his leg, POWERBOMB!
Persephone: He’s way too confident in himself. End the match, then act tough.
Rich Russillo: As Eddie Magnum caught him in a powerbomb, he is waiting for Duke to get up, Duke is up, running forearm smash! Magnum isn’t done. Another headlock and Duke is thrown outside of the ring. Eddie Magnum ran but Donovan Duke headbutts his guts, Duke with a Sunset Flip powerbomb! But oh, Eddie Magnum got his face, 1, kicked out by Duke and Duke blows him out with a fast kick to his head! Duke throws him outside and he actually gets down outside, but he manages to put his hands on the apron, baseball slide and Magnum is down! Duke gets him into the ring again and Eddie went to the ropes, Duke charged but Eddie countered with a Gun Stun! Sudden Backstabber from Eddie Magnum!
James Peters: He sent Duke to the turnbuckle again, he went with multiple kicks to his legs and guts before preparing for the ultimate move combo, Running Corner Dropkick! A chop to Duke’s chest! He wanted to go again but this time, Duke caught him with a Roundhouse Kick of his own! Duke is ready to do his signature move, Tornado DDT countered as his landing got screwed and instead of the delivering the DDT, he is thrown to the ropes again, Eddie Magnum with a fast elbow and a snap dragon suplex that countered by Duke who turned it into a roll up! 1, kick out and they both went for a lockup again!
Persephone: This style of wrestling is going to be stale after a few more matches.
Rich Russillo: Duke got the upper hand as he caught Magnum in an armlock which Magnum countered easily but a headbutt from Duke sent his head flying as he’s counting stars. Duke quickly throws him to the turnbuckle again but he is building it towards something now. He is prepared for it!!! A Superplex on its way, Magnum with some elbows to his face, MAGNUM IS CHANGING THE ATMOSPHERE, HIS POSITION NOW DIFFERS, SPANISH FLY!!!!!!! That must hurt like hell. Eddie Magnum quickly went to the ropes after that deadly move as he was looking for something to help him survive. He went to the top rope again, this time waiting for Donovan to go up so that he can perform one more signature move of his which is Don’t Look Up, known as the diving famouser. He is looking straight at his opponent right now as Donovan Duke is slowly getting up pieces by pieces. DUKE IS UPP!!!! DON’T LOOK UP FROM EDDIE MAGN- COUNTERED WITH A POP- UP POWERBOMB FROM DUKE!
James Peters: DUKE QUICKLY SENT HIS OPPONENT WITH A SLINGSHOT THROW SENDING HIM TO THE CORNER AND HIS FACE COLLAPSED WITH IT! Duke with a German Suplex! Magnum is now sitting on his knees, SUPERKICK!!!!! Magnum is almost down for real, Duke throws him to the ropes for one last time, Uranage sending him down! Duke went to the top rope, this time hoping for the clear results to end this match. SHOOTING STAR PRESS BUT EDDIE MAGNUM ESCAPED OUT OF THE WAY!!!! EDDIE QUICKLY GOT HIS LEG AND ARMS!!!! THRILLKILLER!!!!
Rich Russillo: Donovan Duke is put on Eddie Magnum’s submission finishing maneuver and this move might end it all for him, he has nowhere to go!!!! However, he is still keeping a straight face. OHO, WHAT IS HE DOING NOW!!!! DONOVAN .DUKE WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH GOT UP AND DID A SENTON, COLLAPSING WITH EDDIE MAGNUM IN THE PROCESS! Duke is pretty smart for that strategy. Duke now, trying to get in as much breath as he can after that Thrillkiller almost choked him out! Eddie Magnum is lying in front of the turnbuckle! DUKE CHARGED AND A K- EDDIE CAUGHT HIM AND DUKE TRIPPED AND LANDED ON THE TURNBUCKLE HIMSELF! EDDIE CHOPPED HIS BACK BEFORE TURNING HIS CHEST IN FRONT, HE WENT TO THE OTHER SIDE, RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK BUT DUKE JUMPED HIGH IN THE AIR FOR A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE!
James Peters: Eddie Magnum got up and Duke got him with a Lariat, kip up from Magnum and a Big Boot, Magnum went to the turnbuckle and he got a Superkick right on his own face! Duke with multiple strikes to his legs ended up throwing him away from the turnbuckle with a Slingshot throw sending him to the ropes instead! As Magnum is holding the ropes, Duke goes with a forearm smash and Magnum falls down! Duke grabbed him again but a roll up happened! Duke kicked out and went with his own rollup! Magnum again! Both of them got up, Magnum throws Duke to the top rope, DUKE WITH A TORNADO DDT BUT MAGNUM DIDN’T ENTIRELY LANDED ON HIS HEAD AND HE GOT HIS FEET, DUKE WITH A MOONSAULT ATTEMPT COUNTERED WITH MAGNUM, PREPARING FOR A POWERSLAM BUT DUKE GOT HIM AGAIN!!! DUKE WITH THE ROYAL FLUSH, KNOWN AS THE MICHINOKU DRIVER!!!!! DUKE WITH THE COVER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: What a bout that these two had!
Rich Russillo: They managed to put out something very good out of two up and comers! That showed the charisma inside both wrestlers!
Persephone: They are both losers. Why should I care at all?
James Peters: It’s progress, Persephone. Both of them are still rising up so this match might open a lot of eyes on them!
Persephone: Donovan Duke is losing against Andre Walker anyw-
Rich Russillo: Shhh shhh shh! Andre Walker can wait for some seconds! Donovan Duke just won a hard-fought battle and he just proved his own dominance in front of Andre Walker.
James Peters: Still, we need to appreciate Eddie Magnum for putting out a good performance tonight. He deserved to get a round of applause from us!
Persephone: I won’t make a sound at all.
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, DONOVAN DUKE!!!!!!
(‘Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy starts playing as Donovan Duke is seen yelling Andre Walker’s name, calling him out while doing a belt pose, showing Andre that this might be the end of his title reign. Meanwhile, Eddie Magnum is sitting on the turnbuckle, trying to accept his defeat tonight. Duke looked at Magnum and he gave out a smirk before walking away.)
(The scene fades from ringside and cuts to the backstage area. The ever loyal bodyguard of Darcy May Morgan, Wallace, is seen pacing in front of the door to her personal lockerroom. He is wearing an earpiece and holding a cellphone, and it appears he has been doing this for several hours. The poor man looks exhausted, and no doubt Darcy has put Wallace through the ringer this past week. As seen in her promotional videos, Miss Cash in the Vault’s emotions are all over the place. After everything she’s been through the last few months, she now has to team up with the same person she feels is responsible for her recent failures. The phone in Wallace’s hand buzzes repeatedly, and as it does Wallace begins speaking through the ear piece.)
Wallace: Miss Morgan, it’s Drake. It looks like he really wants to speak to you.
(After a second Darcy’s voice is heard through the ear piece.)
Darcy May Morgan: (through earpiece) Well I clearly don’t want to speak to him, Wallace. After everything he put me through the absolute LAST thing I want is to see his face any more than I need to tonight. Just keep doing your job, alright?
Wallace: Alright, but I don’t believe he’ll be stopping anytime soon. Sooner or later you might have to talk to him-
(Before Wallace finishes speaking, he notices that the phone calls and text messages have completely stopped. He looks a bit confused and waits for a while but gets nothing.)
Darcy May Morgan: (through earpiece) Is everything alright?
Wallace: It looks like he’s stopped. I’m not receiving any more texts or calls, I suppose I was wrong.
Darcy May Morgan: (through earpiece) See? I told you Wallace, all you had to do was ignore him and he’d eventually go away.
Wallace: You were right, my apologies-
???: There you are!
(Wallace looks up as Drake King himself walks into the scene, causing Darcy to sigh as she was able to recognize his voice. Drake looks a bit concerned as he quickly walks over towards Wallace.)
Drake King: Excuse me, is Sister Darcy in there? I really need to speak to her.
Wallace: I’m sorry, but I cannot allow you to do that.
Drake King: Um?… I don’t think you understand, this is very important. I really need to talk to her, it’ll be quick I promise.
(Drake tries to open the door to Darcy’s lockerroom but Wallace gets in the way, blocking Drake from doing so. Drake looks a bit annoyed, as he clearly really wants to speak to Darcy after what’s happened the past few weeks, but Wallace is preventing him from doing so.
Wallace: I told you, you cannot speak to her right now. My job is to protect Miss Morgan, and as of right now I can’t allow you to speak to her. You’ll have to wait another time.
Drake King: Listen, I understand she’s upset at me right now but you know we have a match later tonight. It is in your best interest to let me speak to Sister Darcy so we could get back on the same page and win our match later tonight. Can you please just let me pass so I can see Darcy?
Wallace: I’m afraid I can’t do that.
(As Drake and Wallace continue arguing, the door to Darcy’s lockerroom finally opens. Darcy May Morgan walks out, but she doesn’t look amused at all having to see Drake again.)
Drake King: Darcy! Sister Darcy, please hear me out-
Darcy May Morgan: Fuck right off.
(Drake is taken aback from Darcy’s response. Just one week ago he talked about how reasonable she is, and if it wasn’t obvious he didn’t expect her of all people to act this way about him.)
Drake King: :whoa: Please Darcy! I understand things haven’t been working out too well between the two of us, but I’d really appreciate it if you just gave me the chance to talk things out with you. This is likely the only chance we’ll be getting to work things out before our match later-
Darcy May Morgan: Look Drake, I don’t care! I really don’t want to “talk things out” with you, especially not right now. It’s way too late for that now Drake. You cost me way too many opportunities and way too many matches, and now you expect me to just talk things out like it’s that easy? You cost me Wargames. You cost me the Grand Prix. You cost me the chance to actually beat TLA on my own. Nearly every big opportunity I’ve had this season was ruined by you! This whole mess I’ve been in the past few months all started because I decided to trust YOU of all people! You’re the reason I’ve even been feeling like this! I started this season feeling confident and rightfully so. I had just won the Cash in the Vault briefcase at the biggest show of the year, and what came out of that win? Nothing. All because I chose to be the only person in this entire company to believe in your stupid Messiah shit, I haven’t been able to prove I deserve this. Ever since you came back to this company things just continued to get worse and worse for me Drake. Now I see why everyone laughed at me for teaming up with you in the first place.
Drake King: You’re completely right, I’ve failed to keep my promises with you on more than one occasion. At Territorial Invasion I cost our team the victory, and in the Grand Prix match I failed to help our team capture the victory. I apologize for my failures to help you succeed Darcy, and I really do want to try and make things right but in order to do so I really need you to at least try to trust me! You know I want nothing more than for you to succeed, and tonight in order for you to win we need to work together. Teamwork is what we need to beat TLA and Terry Chambers. I’m sure you understand what’s on the line tonight in our tag team match. This is your opportunity to get payback for what occurred in your last matches with TLA and Terry Chambers, and this is my chance to stop TLA from reaching the Extreme Elimination Chamber. I understand how you feel but this is not a match we can lose. We need to destroy TLA and Terry-
Darcy May Morgan: I KNOW THAT, DAMN! I’ll do whatever needs to be done, but in the meantime you just leave me the fuck alone.
(After a few seconds, Drake nods his head in acceptance before finally walking away knowing he really had no other choice. He clearly sees how upset Darcy May Morgan is, and as long as they’re on the same page and able to defeat Terry and TLA, he’s willing to give Darcy as much space as she needs. As Drake finally is away from the area, Darcy turns her attention to Wallace and she doesn’t look happy in the slightest.)
Darcy May Morgan: Didn’t I tell you that I didn’t want to see him? I shouldn’t have to come out here all because you can’t keep him away from here. You’re my bodyguard Wallace, if you’re going to do your job, DO IT RIGHT!
(Darcy walks back into her lockerroom, slamming the door in Wallace’s face, meanwhile Wallace looks a bit surprised at Darcy’s sudden outburst.)
(As Wallace remained outside of Darcy’s lockerroom door to continue doing his job of protecting her, the camera finally began to fade away from the backstage area.)
(Commercial for Vine featuring Strawberry Steve. Steve was too lazy to actually look up something recent to advertise so he just chose the first thing he saw online.)
(‘Girei’ by Yasuharu Takanashi plays through the speakers as Azrael comes out. Mr. Jacobs is following him shortly after. Azrael has destruction in his eyes as he’s determined to get a victory tonight.)
Bella Braxton:THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS AN EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER QUALIFYING MATCH AND IT’S SCHEDULE FOR ONE FALL!!!
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY MR. JACOBS…FROM THE WAREHOUSE…WEIGHING IN 290 POUNDS… ‘THE FIEND’… AZRAEL!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: It seems like this match is going to be a battle of the monsters. Both of these men could do dangerous things in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. Azrael is someone who wasn’t quite successful at Wicked Games, but winning this match could possibly redeem him of that loss! It’s a match to qualify for a Chamber. You don’t get bigger than that!
Persephone: Who the fuck would give this guy a chance to be in a Chamber? Is this the shit that happens when Rex McAllister isn’t EAW Champion?!?! God, I miss him so much. :mjcry:
James Peters: We know you do, Persephone, but I think that this is an excellent opportunity for someone like Azrael, who has been a freak of nature on Voltage. I would be intrigued to see him in an Extreme Elimination Chamber, but his opponent isn’t easy whatsoever!
(‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence replaces ‘Girei’ as Shane Gates walks out with Lizzie the Graveyard Doll in his position. It’s unclear of how he feels about the doll, but there’s some connection that Shane has to it and everyone could sense that.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…FROM HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA…WEIGHING IN 213 POUNDS… ‘THE NATURAL BORN KILLER’…SHANE GATES!!!!
Persephone: Why is he carrying that stupid doll? :skip:
James Peters: The doll kind of solidified that Shane Gates is alive after his loss at Wicked Games, but that doll is named Lizzie and she is probably quite dangerous. We’ve seen the creepiness and havoc that she’s able to create around Voltage. Lizzie is a wildcard going into the match.
Rich Russillo: That doll is creepier than those ones from those horror movies that I’ve watched a month ago. We all know what dolls do when people aren’t looking. :krabs:
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Azrael and Shane Gates meet each other in the middle of the ring. Shockingly enough, Azrael is the one to over tower Shane, but Shane doesn’t seem to be backing down just yet. He is looking at Azrael dead in the eye.)
Persephone: Shane Gates is partially a child compared to Azrael as he shoves Azrael to the side, but Azrael only staggers back a bit! What in the hell is this shit? :wtf:
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL DELIVERS A NASTY LOOKING HEADBUTT TO SHANE GATES! THIS STAGGERS BACK THE ‘NATURAL BORN KILLER’ AS AZRAEL MAN HANDLES SHANE BEFORE THROWING HIM INTO THE CORNER! That didn’t require much effort from ‘The Fiend,’ but we see Azrael bolting to the corner with a huge bodysplash, but Shane manages to move out of the way at the last second!
James Peters: Azrael crashes to the corner, but Shane Gates creates an opening for himself as he manages to pick up the bigger man before connecting with a deadlift release German suplex on Azrael! Shane refuses to waste anytime as he proceeds to stomp on Azrael! Shane is grazing his foot onto the face of Azrael, BUT AZRAEL MANAGES TO GET SHANE BY HIS BOOT AND SHOVES HIM AWAY!
Persephone: Shane is not planning on spending time on his ass as he manages to pick himself up! It’s quite intriguing that he’s crossing paths with someone, who is bigger and stronger than him! Shane may have put on some weight and muscle for himself, but Azrael is a freak of nature! It’s difficult to keep a bigger man like him down, but if there is someone who may do it easier than your average Elitist, it may be Shane Gates!
Rich Russillo: I think that you may be correct on that, Seph as the two freaks of nature are back to their feet! Now, it seems like they’re going to begin this match in a way that they probably should have in the very first place — by a test of strength! Shane is extending his hand for Azrael to accept the test of strength and Azrael is more than happy to accept it! THE TWO BEHEMOTHS ARE APPLYING PRESSURE ON THE OTHER, HOPING TO KNOCK THE OTHER ONE TO THE ROPES, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE BOTH OF THEM ARE QUITE STUBBORN AND REFUSING TO MOVE WHATSOEVER! BUT, AZRAEL IS GRABBING SHANE BY THAT MESSED UP BEARD OF HIS AND THROWING HIM TOWARDS THE ROPES! HOW IN THE HELL DID AZRAEL DO THAT?
(Shane Gates is caught by surprised as he’s trying to get some feeling back to his chin area. Meanwhile, Mr. Jacob is looking at Azrael with amazement before instructing him on what he should be doing next. Lizzie, the Graveyard doll, is resting nicely on the steel step at ringside.)
James Peters: Azrael’s strength will be something to take under consideration going into the match! Shane manages to stand on a vertical base, but Azrael is quick to knock him down with a discuss lariat! Now, it seems like we’re getting somewhere in this match as Azrael manages to get Shane up to his feet before delivering a nasty chest slap to Shane’s chest! Shane is trying to shake the cobwebs out as he slaps the chest of Azrael back! It doesn’t stop for Azrael to slap the chest of Shane a little harder, knocking Shane to the horizontal set of ropes!
Persephone: Azrael manages to get Shane by the throat and before hoisting up Shane and connecting with a chokeslam —
Rich Russillo: NO! Shane Gates manages to avoid the move as he manages to kick Azrael in the stomach! But, the kick to the stomach was not enough to take Azrael down, so Shane connects with another kick to the stomach! Once again, it seems like it wasn’t enough to take Azrael down! SHANE CONNECTS WITH A THIRD KICK TO THE STOMACH AS HE MANAGES TO PULL AZRAEL CLOSER TO HIM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB! AZRAEL TRIES TO GET HIMSELF TO HIS FEET AT THE CORNER, BUT SHANE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A HESITATION DROPKICK AS THAT SENDS THE BIGGER MAN INTO A SEATED POSITION! For probably one of the first times in this match, Shane has managed to get Azrael down! Now, he just needs to keep this going for himself!
James Peters: Shane Gates is at the corner as he stomps on the face of ‘The Fiend.’ He grazes his foot on the face of Azrael as Mr.Jacobs is hating the look of that. His monster doesn’t seem to be in a good position going into the match as Shane manages to use all of his weight and step onto the chest of Azrael! Oh god, that’s 213 pounds of Shane Gates on the chest of Azrael!
Persephone: Wait a minute… Shane Gates is 213 pounds? :skip:
Rich Russillo: Oh god, do we have another Xander Payne conflict on Voltage? Shane needs to add an extra hundred points for him to look like the realistic weight. It may be worse than Xander trying to convince everyone that he’s 140 pounds or some shit last season!
James Peters: I was just reading Shane Gates’ description that was given in the notes for us, but I feel like we’d need to go to Captain Charisma or a producer about this. The numbers may be way off.
Persephone: Maybe a physician? I’m not saying Shane Gates is fat, but no need to lie about your weight.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! GET OFF, SHANE!
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates decides to get all of his 213 pounds off of Azrael as he manages to get the bigger man to his feet before getting him by the arm! Shane irish whips Azrael to the opposite corner as Azrael crashes back first onto it! Shane charges towards Azrael before connecting with a running bodysplash! Azrael staggers forward, but Shane manages to get him up before connecting with a sidewalk slam! Shane has his opponent in the perfect position for the cover as the referee gets in position to make the count!
James Peters: Azrael manages to shove Shane Gates off of him, but Shane is not planning on letting Azrael get to his feet! Shane is connecting with some pretty harsh elbows to the face of Azrael as his attention towards Mr. Jacobs, who has his arms up in defense! I don’t want piece of Shane Gates at the moment! I don’t blame Mr. Jacobs whatsoever, but Shane isn’t the type of opponent that you want to meddle in the business of. In a way, Shane is a monster of his own and that’s something that he needs to take under consideration!
Persephone: Azrael has Mr. Jacobs. Meanwhile, Shane Gates has that weird creepy doll from the graveyard — OH MY GOD, HOW DID IT GET FROM HERE FROM THE STEEL STEP?!?!?
(Lizzie now finds herself in front of the announcer’s table, looking at the action. It’s unclear of how or when she moved, but she’s not in the spot that she previously was at.)
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates manages to get Azrael to his feet before knee him in the ribs a couple of times! This manages to get Azrael in a bended position before Shane manages to elbow Azrael in the back of his neck, knocking him to an all fours position! Shane quickly manages to get Azrael in position for a camel clutch! Oh man, I think that Azrael is in a bit of trouble at the moment as Shane is looking to keep Azrael right where he is at the moment! Getting a submission victory over someone like Azrael could be impressive! Getting a victory over Azrael is something that is not easy to do whatsoever! We keep gawking over the size of this man and anyone who manages to survive the ring against him is some kind of god!
James Peters: I think that you spoke too soon, Rich! We see that Azrael is trying not to subcom to the camel clutch! He is trying to look for his way up to his feet, but Shane Gates doesn’t want to let go of the camel clutch, but it seems like we don’t get what we want in life as some sort of power has overcome Azrael as he manages to get to a vertical base! Shane Gates is piggyback riding Azrael as he is refusing to let go, BUT AZRAEL MANAGES RUN BACK TO THE CORNER! SHANE’S BACK COLLIDES WITH THE TURNBUCKLE, BUT SHANE IS NOT LETTING GO, SO AZRAEL DOES IT AGAIN, BUT SHANE IS NOT LETTING GO! AZRAEL DOES IT FOR A THIRD TIME AS SHE MANAGES TO LET GO OF AZRAEL’S BACK!
Persephone: Azrael with an elbow shot to the face of the ‘Natural Born Killer!’ He manages to get Shane Gates by the arm before connecting with a hiptoss! Shane finds himself in a seated position as Azrael connects with a big boot to a seated Shane Gates as he manages to place his boot on the top of Shane as the referee gets in position for the count!
Rich Russillo: Now, it’s Shane Gates’ turn to shove Azrael off of him! There was no impact of that shove to Azrael, who manages to pick up Shane by his mop of a hair and hoisting him up on his feet! Azrael throws Shane to one of the corners as Azrael bolts towards Shane before connecting with a Whiplash — the battering ram headbutt as he manages to land the headbutt to the ribs of Shane! Azrael connects with another headbutt and another headbutt! And another one! And another one! And another one! Azrael manages to get Shane before following up those Whiplashes with a snap suplex that takes down his opponent! Azrael manages to get Shane before grazing his forearm to Shane’s face! Azrael connects with a punch which staggers Shane to one knee, but Azrael manages to pull in Shane before connecting with a double arm DDT!
James Peters: Shane Gates manages to get a shoulder up, but it seems like Azrael is not completely finished by the entire thing! Azrael manages to wrap his hand around Shane’s neck and it seems like he’s going to go for that chokeslam that he wanted to go for in the beginning part of the match! He manages to hoist Shane off his feet before chokeslamming him outside of the ring!
Persephone: NO! SOMEHOW, SHANE GATES MANAGES TO HAVE HIS FEET LAND ON THE APRON AS AZRAEL TURNS HIMSELF AROUND AND GOES TO CLOTHESLINE SHANE OUT OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL MANAGES TO CLOTHESLINE SHANE GATES TO THE OUTSIDE, BUT AZRAEL MANAGES TO TAKE HIMSELF OUT OF THE RING! Both monsters are down and I don’t think that Shane was anticipating for this to happen! He thought that he was going to be able to take Azrael by surprise by catching himself on the apron, but Azrael was quick on his feet and managed to clothesline Shane to ringside; however, it seemed like Azrael’s own weight and momentum caused him to tumble outside with Shane!
James Peters: It seemed to be what happened, Rich, but this ring wasn’t enough to keep both of them down! With both of them at ringside and all of these factors such as Mr. Jacobs and Lizzie the graveyard doll, I think that things are going to be a bit more interesting now!
Persephone: Mr. Jacobs is demanding for his monster to rise back and continue unleashing hell on Shane Gates! Azrael is the first one to his feet as he manages to get Shane by his beard, but Shane delivers a giant uppercut to Azrael, but Shane follows that with a clothesline as that takes down Azrael! There’s a look of concern on Mr. Jacob’s face as he tries to check on Azrael, but just look at those hideous eyes of Shane Gates!
(Mr. Jacobs tries to go check on Azrael, but Shane Gates steps closer, which scares off the manager.)
James Peters: This is a different, but totally focused version of Shane Gates. An opportunity at the Extreme Elimination Chamber would be something amazing for him! There’s already an impressive line up and he would love to add his name into the match!
(The referee is at the count of five, but Shane Gates manages to roll himself inside the ring before rolling himself back out.)
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson and Terry Chambers are the two men in the match so far, but Shane would love to add his name next! To be honest, if any of these men managed to win the match, I feel like they would be the wildcards that you would need to be on a look out for. Azrael manages to get halfway to his feet, but Shane manages to stop him with a superkick that knocks the bigger man to his knees! Shane manages to get Azrael to his feet, but Mr. Jacobs manages to make his presence felt as he manages to yank Azrael away from the grasp of Shane!
Persephone: Why in the world would you do that? :wtf:
James Peters: Anything to protect Azrael, Seph. Anything to protect his monster, but you do have a point. This did not look to be the wisest thing for him to do and he’s going to realize that soon!
Rich Russillo: Azrael from behind, gets Shane Gates before connecting with a vice grip to the head of the ‘Natural Born Killer’ — but Shane manages to get Azrael before connecting with an arm drag, separating himself from Azrael! Shane manages to roll himself back inside the ring! This breaks the count in the process, BUT AZRAEL MANAGES TO YANK SHANE BY HIS LEG AS HE MAKES IT OUT OF THE RING! AZRAEL CONNECTS WITH A RUTHLESS CLOTHESLINE AS THAT TAKES SHANE DOWN! NOW, AZRAEL GETS SHANE TO HIS FEET BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A GORILLA PRESS SLAM AS SHANE’S BACK LANDS ON THE APRON!
Persephone: Shane is resting on the apron as Azrael gets on top of the apron himself! Honestly, am I the only one that hopes that the ring collapses or some dumb shit and this match ends? Oh..only me?
James Peters: Azrael steps back inside the ring as he pulls Shane Gates through the middle rope! Is he going for what I think that he’s going through? Shane is hanging from his feet on the top rope. :lupe: Azrael has a sinister look on his face before he connects with a rope hung DDT on Shane Gates! Mr. Jacobs is screaming for Azrael to go for the cover! Could this be enough to end the match?
Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES KICKS OUT!!!!!
Persephone: Will someone stay down?? :noah:
James Peters: With an opportunity to qualify for the Extreme Elimination Chamber, Shane Gates kicks out before the three count! Mr. Jacobs is getting real irritated at ringside! I think that he would have loved to end the match there, but Shane has some fight in him! It’s going to take more to take this fellow monster out of this match! Azrael rises back to his feet as he manages to get Shane up to his feet! Oh my god, he’s going to hoist Shane Gates off his feet! He’s going for his version of the tombstone piledriver that he calls ‘Burial.’ Very appropriate to what happened to Shane at Wicked Games!
Rich Russillo: NO! It seems like Shane Gates is trying to fight off the move! Shane could see the ending of this match happening if Azrael were to connect with Burial! Shane manages to position himself on his feet as he throws a punch to Azrael! AZRAEL THROWS A PUNCH TO SHANE! SHANE THROWS A PUNCH TO AZRAEL! AZRAEL! SHANE! AZRAEL! SHANE! AZRAEL! AZRAEL! AZRAEL! SHANE! SHANE! SHANE! SHANE! SHANE! SHANE GETS AZRAEL BY HIS THROAT BEFORE AND IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S GETTING AZRAEL IN POSITION FOR THE RECKONING — IRONCLAW CHOKESLAM ON AZRAEL! BUT, AZRAEL MANAGES TO GET HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY!
Persephone: Shane Gates manages to catch Azrael out of nowhere by connecting with a superkick to the back of Azrael’s head! She manages to get his arms around the waste of Azrael before going for the first part of Suffer As One! Wait, what’s going on?
(Mr. Jacobs goes near Lizzie, the Graveyard Doll, who is sitting pretty next to Bella Braxton in the timekeeper’s area. It’s unclear on how that doll got there, but the doll is there. By the look of Mr. Jacobs going near Lizzie, Shane stops whatever he was doing and begins to yell at Mr. Jacobs, telling him ‘not to touch her.’)
James Peters: Lizzie has been known to do a bunch of interesting things in matches, but she hasn’t done much here besides move around, looking for a comfortable spot to sit on. Mr. Jacobs manages to get his hand on Lizzie! He is looking at the doll with fascination! He walks over to ringside as he holds the doll up as Shane begins to yell and curse at Mr. Jacobs!
Rich Russillo: Mr. Jacobs throws Lizzie inside the ring!
Persephone: The referee manages to catch Lizzie before she is dropped inside the ring! The referee looks to hand the doll to the timekeeper, but look at what Azrael has in his hands! He has steel chains in his hand as Shane manages to turn himself around —
James Peters: AZRAEL SWINGS THE STEEL CHAIN TO THE SKULL OF SHANE GATES BEFORE PICKING HIM UP — BURIAL CONNECTS ON SHANE!!!!! THE REFEREE GETS IN POSITION FOR THE COVER!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Girei’ plays once again as Azrael gets to his feet. Mr. Jacobs seems to be more than proud of his distraction, letting Azrael get a hold of the steel chain and swinging it at Shane Gates. Mr. Jacobs joins Azrael in the ring as he yells his praises.)
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…AZRAEL!!!!!!
James Peters: Azrael manages to qualify for the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption by defeating Shane Gates! I thought that Shane had a good chance of winning this match, but you REALLY gotta be on a look out for Mr. Jacobs, who will stop at nothing to make sure that he gets the needed results for Azrael.
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates looked amazing, but it seems like Lizzie the Graveyard doll being put in harm’s way may have conflicted him. It took his eyes off the prize for a second, but it cost him the match!
Persephone: Thank god that this match is over! But, how did that doll get there?!!?
(Lizzie the Graveyard doll is resting at the corner, looking at Shane Gates trying to get himself up. Meanwhile, Azrael and Mr. Jacobs are celebrating and going up the ramp. Scene fades elsewhere.)
(Commercial for Andre Walker’s pest control. It’s useful whenever you’re facing a bozo that needs to be removed, but you might also need to use it on Andre himself whenever he gets around animals and candy :lupe:)
(Voltage returns from commercial break, to show Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Bella Braxton: ONE FALL! Introducing first…
(‘Black Madonna [instrumental]’ by Azealia Banks hits the speakers as the crowd becomes split with boos and cheers. Lisa Wren steps through the curtains, as the lights in the arena turn black and grey, pretty much darkening a lot of things. Lisa Wren begins to walk down the ramp.)
James Peters: Here comes a talented young lady who looks to prove a point this week. A win over Nina Bravo is no easy task, but defeating the Visual Prophet’s former assistant would do great for her career.
Rich Russillo: Key word: Former. Meaning she lost all of her value already. She looks to find that value, however, aiming to prove herself as a top elitist!
Persephone: Didn’t ask, can we just skip to the wrestling? More entertaining than hearing you two bozos speak.
Bella Braxton: Hailing from British Columbia, Canada. Weighing in at 130 pounds… SHE IS… LISAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!
(Lisa climbs through the ropes, into the ring, before posing against the ropes. Her theme then cuts out, only to be replaced by ‘Come Thru’ by Summer Walker feat. Usher. Nina Bravo walks through the curtains to a hero’s welcome. She raises her arms before walking down the ramp.)
Rich Russillo: Speak of the devil!
James Peters: Down the ramp walks Nina Bravo, a woman rising up the EAW Ladder recently, who’s aiming to prove herself. Tonight she’s facing Lisa Wren, someone who isn’t easy to beat, to say the least. But I don’t think that’s on Nina’s mind, the only thing she’s thinking of is victory. They’re both set to face off in the Specialists Extreme Elimination Chamber, and who knows, maybe one of them can win it.
Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent… From Moscow, Russia, weighing in at 115 pounds… SHE IS THE RUSSIAN DOLL… NINAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BRAAAAAAAAAAAVOOOOOOOOOO!!!
(Nina climbs onto the apron and enters the ring. She poses once more, and the virtual crowd explodes into cheers. She steps into the corner as her theme fades out.)
Persephone: Hurry up now.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: We are under way after the bell rings, as both competitors slowly approach each other before locking up! They fight for control, and Lisa Wren takes it, shifting behind Nina, with a hold of her wrist! She pulls it behind her back, before attempting to lock in a headlock at the same time with her left arm! An amazing combination of holds, but Nina manages to slip out underneath the headlock! The hammerlock is still locked in, and in order to escape Nina spins around before transitioning herself into A KISS TO THE HEAD ELBOW STRI- NO! LISA WREN DUCKS BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES AND SPRINGBOARDING OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE INTO A FLYING CROSS ARMBAR- DROPKICK OUT OF MID-AIR! NINA CAUGHT HER WITH THAT AMAZINGLY TIMED DROPKICK TO THE HIP, WHICH TAKES HER OUT OF THE AIR AND STRAIGHT TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN BOUNCES TO HER KNEES AND BEGINS TO CRAWL TO THE CORNER, HOLDING ONTO HER RIBS, AS NINA SEES AN OPENING! LISA SITS IN THE CORNER, AS NINA RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE RUNNING BACK AND- …She pats begins to pat Lisa’s cheek! I don’t know if that’s disrespect or trying to bring some fun into the match but OH! LISA SLAPS NINA, BEFORE GRABBING HER BY THE HAIR AND PULLING HER HEAD INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! NO! NINA GRABS THE ROPES TO STOP HERSELF, BEFORE JUMPING INTO THE AIR AND DRIVING HER BOOTS INTO LISA’S CHEST!
James Peters: What a counter from Nina once again! She backs away from the corner, into the center of the ring, as Lisa rolls forward also! Nina looks to set her up for the ‘Ike Turner Special’ Spinning Backfist, as Lisa stands up, but it’s quickly countered with a boot blocking the arm! She quickly attempts her hair pull mat slam, but Nina counters with a kick to her knee! Lisa lets go of Nina, and begins to grasp her leg as she takes it off the ground!
Persephone: We all know where this goes. Nina kicks Lisa’s other leg, she goes dow-
Rich Russillo: SPINNING BACKFIST FROM LISA! THAT’S A BIGGER HUMILIATION THAN ANYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF, STEALING A MOVE FROM YOUR OPPONENTS’ PLAYBOOK! WAIT NO! WHAT THE HELL, NINA MANAGED TO DUCK, AND NOW SHE FOLLOWS UP WITH A SPEAR, TAKING LISA OUT OF HER BOOTS! SHE QUICKLY TRANSITIONS INTO A COVE- NO! LISA ROLLS OUT OF THE RING JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME!
James Peters: I DON’T THINK NINA CARES THOUGH, AS SHE SLOWLY RISES UP AND SHRUGS HER SHOULDERS! LISA WREN CLIMBS TO HER FEET ON THE RAMP, HOLDING HER RIBS ONCE MORE, TRYING TO RECOVER SO SHE CAN’T LOSE THIS MATCH EARLY ON! SHE STUMBLES BACK AND TURNS AROUND… OH MY GOD!!! NINA BRAVO WITH A TOPE CON HILO OVER THE TOP ROPE, PICTURE PERFECT, AND SHE LANDS ON TOP OF LISA WREN TO TAKE HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! LISA BARELY MISSED THE CONCRETE!
Rich Russillo: LISA COULD BE DOWN AND OUT RIGHT HERE, IF NINA IS ABLE TO GET HER BACK IN THE RING AND COVER HER! A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK DIVES ARE JUST A WAY TO MAKE THE CROWD CHEER, BUT A LOT OF THE TIME THEY CHANGE THE ENTIRE COURSE OF THE MATCH! AS SHE CLIMBS BACK UP TO HER KNEES, AND TAKES A HOLD OF LISA’S HAIR! SHE BEGINS TO DRAG HER TOWARDS THE APRON, BEFORE SLIDING HER INTO THE RING, AND FOLLOWING UP WITH A COVER!
Rich Russillo: NO! LISA WREN GETS THE SHOULDER UP, REMAINING IN THE MATCH!
James Peters: That was a fantastic dive to the outside, and the landing was perfect! That kick out wasn’t because they got to the pinfall late, nor because the move wasn’t executed well enough. That was sheer resilience, and it makes me question what CAN put her away. Granted, it is only the beginning of the match.
Rich Russillo: I’m sure it’s possible, if anyone can do it, Nina can. She begins to stand back up, with a hold on Lisa’s wrist, perhaps looking for an opportunity to hit her finishing move! She kisses Lisa on the head, BUT LISA PULLS HER INTO A HAIR PULL MAT SLAM! A NICE COUNTER TO THE FINISHING MOVE OF HER OPPONENT, CLEARLY SHE HAD IT SCOUTED!
James Peters: LISA WREN EXITS ONTO THE APRON, AND BEGINS TO STUMBLE OVER TO THE TURNBUCKLES, LOOKING TO HEAD UP TO THE TOP! SHE INDIVIDUALLY SCALES TO THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE YOU CAN BE IN A WRESTLING RING, THE TOP ROPE! AS SHE REACHES THE TOP, NINA HITS A PALM STRIKE TO LISA’S SHOULDER, PUSHING HER BACK! NINA BEGINS TO CLIMB UP ALSO!
Rich Russillo: NINA BEGINS TO JAB AWAY AT LISA WREN IN THE LOWER BACK, BEFORE HITTING SOME UPPERCUTS TO THE RIBS! LISA FIGHTS OUT OF IT HOWEVER, AND PUSHES HER DOWN TO THE GROUND… SHE’S GONNA JUMP… OH MY! FROG SPLASH- NINA GETS THE KNEES UP! TO THE RIBS ONCE MORE! NINA TRANSITIONS INTO A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP!
Rich Russillo: LISA ROLLS INTO A ROLL UP OF HER OWN!!
Rich Russillo: NINA BOUNCES OUT OF IT AND GETS TO HER FEET… SNAPMARE! NINA HITS LISA WREN WITH A SNAPMARE, TAKING HER OUT TO THE GROUND, MAKING SURE SHE’S NOW IN CONTROL! NINA CRAWLS TO THE CORNER AND CLIMBS TO HER FEET, BEFORE CALLING LISA UP TO HER FEET… OH NO… ‘IKE! TURNER! SPECIAL!!!!’ SPINNING BACKFIST TAKES LISA DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: THAT ISN’T ALL OF IT THOUGH, AND SHE’S CLEARLY NOT DONE! NINA GRABS LISA’S CHIN AND LIFTS HER TO A SEATED POSITION, BEFORE HITTING A SECOND SPINNING BACKFIST! LISA WREN FALLS DOWN UNCONSCIOUS, AS NINA COVERS! THIS! ONE’S! OVER!
Rich Russillo: NO! IT’S! NOT! LISA WREN MANAGES TO KICK OUT AT THE VERY LAST SECOND! I DON’T KNOW HOW, BUT SHE DID IT! NINA BRAVO CRAWLS BACKWARDS INTO THE CORNER ONCE AGAIN, STARING AT LISA! SHE DOESN’T BELIEVE IT!
James Peters: Nina tries to laugh it off, as she rises to her feet with a smile on her face, approaching Lisa, and trying to lift her up. She sees the smile on Nina’s face, before slapping her once again! Hair falls down into Nina’s face, as her smile is completely covered! And Lisa capitalizes with a leaping knee strike to the head, but Nina stays on her feet! Lisa looks to end it… DISCUS LEAPING KNEE! NINA FALLS OUT THROUGH THE ROPES ONTO THE APRON, ALMOST FALLING TO THE GROUND ENTIRELY! LISA WREN SEES THIS, AS SHE CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: SHE MAY BE AIMING FOR WHAT DIDN’T WORK LAST TIME, AND IF IT CONNECTS IN THIS SITUATION, IT MAY JUST BE ALL OVER! SHE REACHES THE TOP AND FACES NINA BRAVO… OH MY GOD… FROG SPLASH ONTO THE APRON!!! LISA WREN JUST FLATTENED HER OPPONENT, ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING!
Persephone: Surely heard that term every single week at this point.
Rich Russillo: Hearing you every week isn’t enough, gimme those digits.
James Peters: Lisa rolls Nina into the ring, and crawls in after her, before being seated on her stomach and hooking the leg!
James Peters: WHAT!?!? NINA BRAVO KICKED OUT!! I DON’T KNOW HOW, BUT SHE GOT THE SHOULDER UP! LISA WREN IS SHOCKED! THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN GET OUT OF A MOVE LIKE THAT BETTER THAN NINA IS PROBABLY DEDEDE! AMAZING SHOW OF HEART BY NINA!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN ROLLS OUT OF THE COVER, STARING AT NINA WITH A VERY SHOCKED EXPRESSION, AND FOR GOOD REASON! IT’S NOT EVERY WEEK WHERE WE SEE SOMETHING LIKE THAT GO DOWN! LISA BEGINS TO CLIMB THE ROPES, WITH HER EYES STILL FOCUSING ON NINA!
James Peters: LISA GRABS NINA’S ARM, AND SLOWLY PULLS HER BACK UP, LOOKING TO END THE MATCH RIGHT NOW! SHE RUNS TO THE ROPES, BEFORE HITTING A BOTTOM ROPE SPRINGBOARD- NO! NINA BRAVO CATCHES HER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX, ONLY FOR LISA TO COUNTER THAT WITH AN ARM DRAG! NINA ROLLS TO HER FEET, BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANOTHER SPINNING BACK FIST- BUT IT’S DUCKED!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN BEGINS TO FIGHT THROUGH HER PAIN, ATTEMPTING FOREARM AFTER FOREARM, WHICH YES, IT DOES USE YOUR TORSO FOR POWER! BUT NINA BRAVO DOESN’T BACK DOWN EITHER! SHE RETURNS THE FIRE HITTING PUNCHES TO THE HEAD, RAPID FIRE STRIKES, BACK AND FORTH! LISA! NINA! LISA! NINA! NINA! LISA! LISA! LISA! OHHHHHH LIS-
James Peters: NINA DUCKS A FOREARM BEFORE LIFTING HER UP INTO A FIREMANS CARRY! PROPHET DRIVER! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER SENDS LISA WREN CRASHING INTO THE MAT, DOING EVEN MORE DAMAGE TO THE GUT AND RIBS! IT COULD BE OVER! NINA SLIPS INTO A COVER!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN KICKS OUT! SHE’S TRYING HER BEST TO MATCH NINA’S HEART AND DETERMINATION, BUT NINA REFUSES TO LET THAT HAPPEN, AS SHE MOUNTS HER BACK, HOOKS THE ARMS… CAMEL CLUTCH!!!!!!!!!! THE CAMEL CLUTCH IS LOCKED IN- WAIT A SECOND! LISA GETS HER ARMS FREE, AND GRABS A HOLD OF NINA’S BOOTS… SHE’S TYING HER SHOELACES TOGETHER!
James Peters: WHAT THE FUCK?!? THIS IS A QUESTIONABLE TACTIC AT BEST, IS IT EVEN LEGAL!? LISA SLIPS THROUGH NINA’S LEGS, AND PULLS HER TO THE FLOOR! SHE CAN’T GET BACK UP! SHE’S RIPE FOR THE PICKING! LISA STANDS UP AND LOOKS DOWN AT HER OPPONENT TRYING TO UNTIE HER SHOELACES!
Rich Russillo: KICK TO THE LEG! THEN TO THE BACK! THEN TO THE ARM! SHE’S UNFIRING ALL OF HER ROUNDS INTO NINA AT ONCE, PRETTY MUCH TORTURING HER INTO GIVING UP! THERE’S LITERALLY NOTHING SHE CAN DO OTHER THAN TAKE IT! KICK AFTER KICK AFTER KICK! THE SLAPS OF HER BOOT COLLIDING WITH FLESH IS ENOUGH TO MAKE THE STRONGEST OF MEN FLINCH!
James Peters: BUT NINA ISN’T TRYING TO ESCAPE! SHE’S ALLOWING IT TO HAPPEN! AFTER EVERY KICK SHE’S, WHAT I CAN ONLY ASSUME IS, ENCOURAGING MORE IN RUSSIAN! LISA STEPS BACK, BEFORE BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES… PENALTY KICK!
Rich Russillo: NINA BRAVO FALLS TO THE GROUND! THE PENALTY KICK CONNECTS, AND LISA FALLS INTO A COVER! IT COULD ALL BE OVER RIGHT HERE!
James Peters: WHAT!?!??! NINA KICKS OUT! GIVEN EVERYTHING SHE’S BEEN PUT THROUGH, AFTER THE PUNISHMENT SHE JUST ENDOURED, SOMEHOW SHE FINDS A WAY TO KICK OUT! ABSOLUTELY FUCKING AMAZING! LISA WREN IS IN AS MUCH SHOCK AS I AM RIGHT NOW!
Rich Russillo: SHE WANTS TO PUT IT AWAY RIGHT HERE, BUT FIRST SHE AIMS TO WEAR DOWN NINA SOME MORE! SHE BEGINS TO KICK HER IN THE CHEST OVER AND OVER AGAIN, MAKING MORE THUDS THAN YOUR NEIGHBOR’S BED! NINA IS JUST FORCED TO TAKE IT, FORCED TO TAKE EVERY KICK AND HOPE FOR THE BEST! LISA WREN GRABS NINA BY THE HAIR, AND LIFTS HER INTO A SEATED POSITION, BEFORE SHE RUNS THE ROPES…
James Peters: PENALTY KICK AGAIN!!! WAIT, NO! NINA BRAVO MANAGED TO DUCK THE LEG, FALLING TO HER BACK AND ALLOWING LISA TO COMPLETELY MISS! SHE THEN PULLS HER FEET INTO THE AIR, AND KIPS BACK UP TO HER FEET! NINA WAS PLAYING POSSUM ALL ALONG, AND JUST SHOWING TO THE WORLD THAT SHE’S A NEXT LEVEL ELITIST! OH MY GOD… SPEAR! TAKING OUT THE RIBS AGAIN!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN WAS JUST FOLDED IN HALF BY THAT DEVASTATING SPEAR, AND THAT COULD JUST BE THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR LISA WREN! NINA BRAVO SLOWLY RISES TO HER FEET, HOLDING HER CHEST, AS SHE EYES LISA WREN… SHE GRABS A HOLD OF HER WRIST AS SHE STANDS UP… ‘KISS TO THE HEAD’-
James Peters: LISA WREN DUCKS AND PULLS BACK-
Rich Russillo: ‘KISS TO THE HEAD’ TO THE GUT! TO THE RIBS! KISS TO THE TORSO IF YOU WILL! THE BULLHAMMER ELBOW TO LISA WREN’S RIBS BENDS HER DOWN, BEFORE NINA WOBBLES BACK… OH MY GOD… NOOOOOO RUSSIAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!! THE FAME-ASSER TAKES LISA WREN DOWN TO THE GROUND, SPIKING HER ON THE DOME! WITH ONLY HER ARMS, NINA CRAWLS INTO THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Come Thru’ by Summer Walker feat. Usher hits the speakers, as the virtual crowd erupts in cheers. Nina Bravo sits up, and begins to untie her boots.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE RUSSIAN DOLL… NINAAAAAA BRAAAAAAAAAVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: What an amazing win for this young talent right here! Showing she can not only talk the talk, but she can walk the walk! Quite clearly, too! Allowing herself to be bruised and battered, and she still comes out on top!
Rich Russillo: That wasn’t a great tactic, but it did work for her tonight! Props to her, I guess!
(As Nina Bravo finally stands up, and celebrates on the top rope, Voltage cuts to commercial break.)
(Commercial for Drake King: WAP, Worship and Prayer, mixtape airs.)
(The arena goes dark, the sounds of the Gypsy Chants, Symbols and Cimbalon beging to play when suddenly the rift of “Blood, Milk & Sky” by White Zombie plays, echoing when a lone spotlight is shown where Minerva is on the stage, wearing black jeans, combat boots, black t-shirt, leather jacket and beanie. Looking around at the virtual crowd to a mix of boos and cheers, she smirks before heading down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time, “THE GYPSY MOTH” MINERVA!!!!
(Minerva walks around the ring, before taking her seat next to Persephone who scoots over closer to Rich Russillo. Minerva smirks, staring down Persephone before putting her headset on.)
Rich Russillo: Why are you sitting so close to me?
Persephone: Because she is sitting next to me, relax.
James Peters: Minerva is here to join us on commentary, the former Universal Women’s Champion, and we will get her insight in this next match, welcome.
Minerva: Thank you Mr. Peters. Hello Rich, and hello Persephone.
Rich Russillo: Welcome Minerva, do you want to trade seats, Persephone?
(As they switch seats, Minerva shakes her head, smiling.)
Minerva: What’s the matter? Afraid I may take some of what you said about me in the past to heart? You do know that I usually always find a way to exact revenge. Remember what happened to Sienna last week?
Persephone: Don’t remind me.
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake starts to play throughout the arena, as Sierra Bradford comes out all smiles, pointing to the fans, with one half of the Unified Tag Team Titles around her waist.)
Bella Braxton: The Following Contest is scheduled for ONE Fall! Introducing first, from San Francisco, CA.! Weighing in at 141 pounds! “THE MULTIVERSAL CONSTANT” SIERRA BRADFORD!!!!!!!!!!!
(The virtual crowd cheers as she runs down to the ring, slides in and steps on the second rope looking around before her eyes lock with Minerva who waves.)
James Peters: Sierra Bradford looks ready for one of the toughest singles challenges of her career and Minerva, you two are no strangers t each other.
Minerva: No, we are not. Meeting in the Iconic Cup, and then again, a few weeks ago in tag team action. I may say a lot of derogatory things about Sierra’s approach, but she is nothing short than phenomenal in the ring.
Persephone: A compliment, wow. That must’ve been tough, though I will say I was on your side during all this controversial stuff leading into Wicked Games, until well…. You know.
Rich Russillo: Maybe you shouldn’t poke the lioness in the cage, Persephone.
Minerva: No, it’s okay, I think we all saw what happened at Wicked Games and….
(Just as Minerva is talking, Sierra’s theme abruptly ends, and the lights begin to flash as ‘Unfuckwithable’ by Deez Nutz begins to blast all throughout the arena. A few moments pass as Sienna Jade emerges. She poses and raises her arms high. Minerva stops and her eyes deadlock on Sienna.)
Bella Braxton: And Her opponent! She hails from San Diego, CA.! Weighing in at 135 pounds…. She is “UNFUCKWITHABLE” SIENNA JADE!!!!!!!!!!!!
(The virtual crowd boos. Sienna then turns around and shows off her leather jacket with the letters, “UNFUCKWITHABLE” attached. She turns and begins to strut down the ramp. Sienna slides under the ring and climbs the nearest turnbuckle as she raises her title above her head with her two hands. Then slowly turning and locking eyes with Minerva who slowly stands up and starts to clap.)
James Peters: The former National Elite Champion is here, and automatically she sees Minerva. The question is could her presence play a part in this match or not, we will see and only time will tell.
Rich Russillo: She had some scorching words for Sierra Bradford last night, if there is anyone more ready to put the title defeat behind her it is Sierra, with the exception of Minerva of course.
Persephone: Kiss ass.
Rich Russillo: More like smart ass.
(The referee checks on both women as they are ready for the match and he rings the bell…)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(Sienna and Sierra both go to lock up, Sienna grabs Sierra from behind, trying to get an advantage.)
James Peters: They both lock up and Sienna already trying to take the advantage, Sierra goes with an elbow to Sienna, and another, she releases the hold, Sierra turns but Sienna is quick with forearm, she stunned Sierra, NO! Sierra responds with one of her own! Here comes Sienna roaring back! And another! She is trying her best to get the advantage, but Sierra is not letting her! Going for another forearm, no, Sierra blocks it, a right to the face, and another, whipping Jade into the ropes and back body drop! Sienna lands hard and she rolls out of the ring right in front of us and Minerva is standing up, Jade is back up and is almost face to face with the Gypsy!
Minerva: Get back in the ring, bitch.
Sienna Jade: (Off-Mic) Stay outta my face you creepy cunt.
Rich Russillo: Sienna Jade is quickly rolling back into the ring, after seeing Minerva, and this has to work against her, this distraction.
Minerva: Like she distracted me at Wicked Games giving Terry an opening to literally bash my face in? I’m lucky to still be alive. She on the other hand is just as lucky I didn’t end it for her right there, for the sake of Sierra and a huge win for her. I could care less about anyone, but that one thing I will never be a hypocrite. I will not touch her, that much I already agreed with Captain Charisma, but these shackles are soon going to be unlocked.
Persephone: Yeah, you are creepy.
Minerva: I actually take that as a compliment, so Thanks?
Rich Russillo: Jade back in the ring, and Sierra is not letting up! Kick after kick, picking up Jade by the hair, a whip into the turnbuckle, clothesline and followed with a bulldog! Sierra Bradford has taken complete control! She is not going for a cover, instead a leg drop! She is being relentless right now, not even going for a cover, instead she hooks Jade for a butterfly suplex, NO! Sienna twists out of it, short arm clothesline, no! Sierra ducks under, Sienna turn, a beautiful crescent kick, but Sierra ducks, runs against the ropes, Yakuza Kick! SHE HITS SIENNA FLUSH IN THE JAW!
Persephone: Good finish this!
Minerva: Much as it pains me to say this, Sienna is too good to allow herself to go down like that. Sierra is going for the first cover of the night.
James Peters: Sienna kicks out with authority and you are right Minerva, she is one of the best and I know that you have been wanting to step in the ring with her since stepping foot into the EAW
Minerva: That is correct. She was always the one I looked at being the very best. There is a reason she is at the very top, and it doesn’t matter how many matches I have won or lost since Territorial Invasion which is more than I have won, you beat her one on one and that puts anyone right back up to contention.
James Peters: That she is and Sierra Bradford is not letting up, she has Jade up, Irish Whipping her into the corner again, she is gearing up, running at her with the Running Knee, NO! Sienna gets out of the way, Sierra hits hard in the buckle, Jade from behind, RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX and Sierra lands hard on the mat! Now Sienna has taken the first advantage of the match and here is where she is most dangerous, she is so quick, like a hiccup turning this around quickly, and one thing no one can argue, with the Grand Prix Semi-finals and finals coming, she is gearing to walk away with those heading into Road To Redemption. Could that mean you will have to wait to face her, Minerva?
Minerva: No, I will make sure that she faces me, I don’t care if she has to pull double duty, redemption will be mine. You’re a little quiet tonight Persephone, are you okay? Or is this wanna-be edgy goth bothering you?
Persephone: Uh, no. I am trying to concentrate on this match, doing my job as a professional, you know.
Minerva: A professional? I can see the smoke coming out of your ears, freckles.
Rich Russillo: Sienna Jade has Sierra Bradford, and you can see that Jade is not paid by the hour, SPIKE DDT! SIERRA IS IN AQ LOT OF TROUBLE HERE AND LOOK AT SIENNA! SHE IS CHOKING SIERRA WITH HER BOOT ON HER THROAT STARING RIGHT AT MINERVA! SHE IS LAUGHING AS THE REFEREE IS ADMINISTERING THE COUNT!
Rich Russillo: Sierra breaks the choke, still eyeing you Minerva and laughing.
Minerva: She can laugh all she wants right now, for I will get the last one. What she should be doing is concentrating on Sierra, who may be down, but that girl is tough as nails. It took everything I had to keep her down twice. Yeah, you better keep an eye on her, convoluted twat.
(Sienna laughs some more before turning her attention back at Sierra…)
James Peters: She now has Sierra up by the hair, Sienna is trying to slowly destroy her piece by piece here, as she picks up Sierra to her feet, kicking her in the gut, NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! SHE GOES FOR THE PIN!
Minerva: Sierra kicks out like I knew she would, very resilient. I’m sorry, did I take your spot here, Persephone?
Persephone: I liked it better when the Shea Butt….
Minerva: …. I am going to warn you right now, choose your next words carefully.
Persephone: …. What nail polish do you use? It’s so Halloween!
James Peters: Sierra Bradford was able to kick out and if Minerva doesn’t kill Persephone here before this match is over it will be a miracle. Sienna grabs Sierra again, Belly to belly suplex! And she transitions right into a FUJIWARA ARM BAR! SHE HAS IT LOCKED AND THIS COULD SPELL THE END OF SIERRA BRADFORD! LOOK HOW FAR SHE IS PULLING THAT ARM! SIENNA WAS LOOKING TO SLOW THIS CONTEST DOWN, SHE WANTED TO SLOW THE TEMPO AND THE MOMENTUM, SHE IS DOING JUST THAT AND PULLING BACK HARD ON THE ARM! ONE HALF OF THE JADED HEARTS IS ON HER WAY TO VICTORY!
Rich Russillo: LOOK AT HOW MUCH SHE IS PULLING THAT ARM! IT IS HALFWAY ACROSS HER BACK! SHE COULD RIP SOME TENDONS! TAKE THE ARM OUT OF SOCKET! SIERRA IS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE! SHE HAS HER READY TO TAP, BUT SIERRA SHAKES HER HEAD “NO”!
Minerva: She is close to the ropes; she needs to try and reach over.
Persephone: Just give up already! This match is stupid and…..
(Persephone catches Minerva glaring right at her….)
Persephone: I mean…. Come on Sierra! WOOT! WOOT!
James Peters: Sierra is doing her best to reach over, she is extending….. AND SHE HAS THE ROPES! SOMEHOW AND SOMEWAY SHE WAS ABLE TO STRETCH OVER AND GET THE ROPES! THE REFEREE IS CALLING FOR THE BREAK! BUT SIENNA IS NOT WILLING TO DO SO!
James Peters: Sienna finally breaks the hold but the damage is already done and we can see just how much pain Sierra is in right now, she may have taken the right arm out completely we don’t know but Jade is kicking the arm! Repeatedly and this is the viciousness that you will have to contend with Minerva.
Minerva: Like I can’t play the same game.
James Peters: This is true, no one is denying that. Sienna picks up Sierra, hooking her in, no Sierra sidesteps, ENZINGUIRI! JADE IS DAZED, SHE POUNCES OFF THE ROPES RIGHTING WOES! THAT HIT JADE RIGHT IN THE FACE AND SHE IS DOWN! SIERRA DROPS WOTH THE HOOKED LEG AND THE COVER!
Minerva: And like Sierra, you are not going to beat one of the best, if not the best female competitor in the EAW like that, even I know that. Persephone?
Persephone: What an incredible match so far!
Rich Russillo: Minerva, could you commentate with us every week, please?’
Minerva: I would love too.
Persephone: She has matches to win and lo…. I mean win championships and so many other things. She is good at wrestling.
Rich Russillo: As we finally get Persephone to actually be a commentator for once, Sierra is back to her feet, she is holding her arm but doing a damn good job of using her legs and feet. Sienna is in trouble, slowly getting up, wait….. SIERRA BACKS UP…. THE ELECTRIC FEEL! THE ELECTRIC FEEL CONNECTS ON JADE BUT SHE FALLS AND ROLLS OUTSIDE THROUGH THE ROPES! THE REFEREE SEES THIS AND GOES TO BEGIN THE COUNT! SIERRA COULD WIN BY COUNT OUT!
Minerva: No, not like this.
James Peters: Sienna Jade seems to be out of it! She is barely moving, as Sierra is now out there, she doesn’t want a referee count! Lifting up Sienna up to the apron, she wants to beat her in the ring.
Minerva: Sierra needs to be careful; I know she hit her with that devastating Shining Wizard bit Sienna is one of the most resourceful wrestlers on the roster.
James Peters: No one can argue that Minerva. Sierra rolling her back in the ring, she goes for the cover!
Persephone: Come on…. I mean shoulder up by Sienna Jade…. What a credit to her resiliency, it was incredible that she kicked out, this woman can take anything, she….
Minerva: Okay, stop you are over doing it.
Persephone: Oh my God, what do you expect me from woman!?
Rich Russillo: Sierra can’t believe that Jade was able to get her shoulder up! Slamming the mat in a bit of frustration, Sierra still favoring her arm, picks up Sienna with her left arm, she runs against the ropes…. SEEKING MISSILE! NO! JADE DUCKED! SIERRA HIT HARD ON THE MAT! BUT SHE IS QUICK TO HER FEET, SHE WALKS INTO THE WITCHES HAMMER! SHE LEVELED SIERRA AND NOW JADE IS PICKING HER UP! SHE HAS SIERRA UP TO HER FEET, HOOKING IN THE CLAP BACK….. SHE HITS IT AND SIERRA IS OUT ON THE MAT! SIERRA IS ROLLED OVER BY SIENNA AS THIS IS ACADEMIC!
James Peters: SHE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Minerva: Sierra with a kick out…. This is NOT over, I told you this gal is super tough.
James Peters: She really is! Sierra was able to get her left shoulder and arm up, this young woman is taking everything that Jade has and more! She may not be able to take much more though! She is being picked up by the hair, and I think that Sienna Jade is looking to end this right now! She has hammer locks her right arm, scoops her up in a SLAM! RIGHT ON THE BAD ARM! SIERRA IS PRONE AND LOOK AT JADE! SHE IS POINTING AT YOU MINERVA, CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE, SIERRA IS NOT MOVING! HERE COMES STARSTRUCK! NO!!!! SIERRA WAS ABLE TO GET HER KNEES UP! SIENNA AND THAT BEAUTIFUL TEXTBOOK MOONSAULT WAS CAUGHT! SHE CAN’T BREATHE! TRYING TO CATCH HER BREATH! SIERRA RUNS TO THE ROPES…. BULLSEYE! SHE CAUGHT HER WITH THE LEFT ARM! SIENNA IS DOWN! SIERRA IS TRYING TO GET UP! HER ARM, SHE IS IN SO MUCH PAIN BUT SIERRA….
Minerva: … has heart.
Rich Russillo: Yes, she does! SIERRA IS UP AND WAITS, HERE COMES SIENNA JADE UP TO HER FEET AND SIERRA LOCKS IN MISERY BUSINESS! SHE HAS SIENNA UP ON HER HER SHOULDERS, NO! HER ARM BUCKLED! SIERRA IS IN SO MUCH PAIN, JADE GRABS THE ARM AND HOPS OFF HER SHOULDER, SHE PULSL IT HARD EVEN FALLING ON THE MAT! SIERRA SCREAMS IN PAIN!
Persephone: She is hurt!
James Peters: SHE IS HURT, SIENNA BACK UP, KICK TO THE STOMACH, LOCKS IN RDG! THE BRIDGING FISHERMAN’S BUSTER! I DON’T THINK SIERRA HAS ENOUGH!
Minerva: Damn it.
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…… SIENNA JADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Sienna lets go of the hold before she rolls over, holding her stomach in and back of her neck while Sierra holds her arm in pain, lying to her side. The referee raises her hand as Sienna slowly gets to her feet, she looks over at Minerva who is standing up clapping.)
Minerva: BRAVO! BRAVO!
James Peters: Huge bounce back win for Sienna Jade tonight to remind us once again just how good and resilient this woman is. She just defeated an incredibly talented wrestler and champion, Sierra Bradford and looks to be on a collision course with you, Minerva.
Rich Russillo: I must admit, I thought that Sienna would be easily distracted by her presence here tonight but that was not the case. We caught her looking back over here a few times, even goading Minerva here or there, but she stayed focus and squeaked one out.
Persephone: Whatever, Sienna wasn’t going to lose to Sierra, this was so academic.
(Sienna leans over and points at Minerva.)
Sienna Jade: (Off-Mic) Oh I bet you want me to come down there right now or even invite you into MY ring, right? After last week, I have better things to do than pay you anymore attention.
Minerva: Then why are you giving it to me now? Because you’re scared.
Sienna Jade: (Off-Mic) Actually, I need to preserve myself because you see, I have a Grand Prix to win and well…. You don’t. Ta Ta bitch.
(Sienna blows Minerva a kiss as “Unfuckwithable” by Deez Nuts start to play throughout the arena. Minerva just glares at Sienna as she brushes her hair back and saunters in her victory before stepping by the referee and Sierra who is slowly recovering, hopping out of the ring and heading to the back.)
Minerva: Keep talking, we’ll see about that, my precious little bee.
(Minerva stares her down obviously annoyed, biting down on her lip.)
James Peters: We can cut the tension with a knife right now; Minerva and Sienna Jade are heading to a collision course. We will be right back.
Rich Russillo: This is going to get ugly.
Persephone: Uh… it already was.
(Sienna Jade continues to walk away while Minerva stares her down taking off her headset, as Sierra is being helped back to her feet by the referee.)
(Commercial promoting the Playstation 5 and Spider-Man: Miles Morales featuring the Realm.)
(Kingslayer by Bring Me The Horizon feat. BABYMETAL begins to play as Jesse Barlow walks out with Hannah Marin ready for his match with Colt Hendrix. He and Hannah pose to the Virtual Crowd before he starts to head toward the ring.)
Bella Braxton: The Following contest is scheduled for ONE Fall! Introducing first, hailing from Hoboken, New Jersey! Weighing in at 210 pounds! Accompanied to the ring by Hannah Marin…. “THE VIRTUOUS” JESSE BARLOW!!!!!!
(Jesse and Hannah make their way ringside as he slides in, asking for a mic with Hannah by his side.)
James Peters: Big match for Jesse tonight against the newcomer Colt Hendrix, but it looks like Jesse has something to say.
Rich Russillo: This should be interesting.
Persephone: Please do not make this long, I just suffered sitting through Minerva, her bat shit, witch hazel and werewolf perfume smell is still here.
(Jesse takes a second, looking around at the virtual crowd before he speaks.)
Jesse Barlow: Before we introduce the ham n’ egger out here that I am going to defeat tonight, I have a few things that I need to get off my chest and a few questions that need to be answered. First off, I think I am done with this whole tag team thing, I mean let’s face it, I tried but it is so hard to find help these days. First, I had Colby Sol, here I thought we were actually going to be something, but we all saw on the Draft show how he had his ass wiped across the mat never to be heard from again, well my sources tell me he’s now wrestling under a hockey mask, named Slappy-Something in some swamp making $15 a match plus a free Hot Dog, bag of Lays and a Coke. I didn’t give up though, I wanted to build up my chances once again to becoming the next Unified Tag Team Champions, and I found Korey Gaines. I know that most didn’t take me seriously when Korey had made some life altering choices that required a lot of sacrifice and focusing less on the pretty girls in the sport, the hottest stands right next to me, and yes focus more In the ring. I could have talked about the robbery at Pain For Pride and owed a shot, instead I continue to follow the dream when maybe I should have stopped and concentrated on what was most important, ME.
(Hannah rubs his back, nodding in agreement….)
Jesse: See, though, I’m ready to move on from it, what’s done is done, and going forward it’s ALL ABOUT Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin, and there’s not gonna be any room for anyone else, two is a pair, three is a crowd. It is time that I start to get serious about my craft which means what? Yes, Jesse Barlow is ready to make some heads roll, which means that I need a match that will mean something at Road To Redemption, because you see last year, I was given a flaming foot to my face thanks to the Good Doctor, but back then, I wasn’t the man I am now. I want it to mean something, look at it as my coming out party, not in that way pervs, but that Jesse Barlow is HERE and he is a contender. I honestly do not give a fuck who I face, or what the match is because I just wants to fight and beat the shit out of people. Furthermore…..
(Suddenly he is cut off by “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi, the virtual crowd cheers, some boo as Myles steps out in plain clothes holding the National Elite Championship over his shoulder. Jesse turns to the entrance way, lowering his sunglasses….)
James Peters: MYLES IS HERE! He answered the call and look at Jesse Barlow’s face, he was not expecting this at all!
Rich Russillo: No, he was not! Myles is determined after how Voltage ended last week to make sure everyone knows that he is one of the absolute best and we saw his girlfriend, Minerva out here just minutes ago for the Sienna Jade and Sierra Bradford match.
Persephone: He is more tolerable, the better half.
(Jesse walks over to the ropes, leaning over them glaring at Myles.)
Jesse Barlow: I’m a little disappointed not to see your hot girlfriend with her, since she was out earlier, but you know, mine is hotter.
Myles: “My GiRlFrIeNd Is BeTtEr LoOkInG tHaN yOuRs.” Shut your trap mate, we all know who is dating the hottest woman, me but that is all nonsense, because you see I want to talk about wrestling, not our personal lives. See Jesse, I am hearing you yap in the back like a wallaby and here I am asking myself, well hell Myles, well that’s pretty much what I’m here for as well Jesse.”
Jesse Barlow: Oh. really Myles, you’re just not here to hog up my time, you actually have a meaning to all of this? I mean since you failed Minerva and are no longer in the Grand Prix, is your busy schedule now open?
Myles: We have a comedian, that’s a good one, unlike you though I actually trust my tag team partner and know that when it calls for it MASOCHISTxMANIFEST will be ready for any challenge, but unlike you mate who’s partners pretty much sucked and bottomed out, I mean I am sure Landerson is looking for a partner or maybe TNT, they are hell of competitors.
Jesse Barlow: Enough! Is there a point to this, Myles?
Myles: There is always a point when I speak unlike you. So here it is, why not face me at Road to Redemption?
Jesse Barlow: Alright, you’re on.
(Hannah quickly snaps the mic from Jesse’s hands.)
Hannah Marin: Whoa, hold on a second, I think this is a great idea, but how about you put that National Elite Championship on the line at Road to Redemption?
Myles: Jesse hasn’t earned a shot at this title Hannah, you know that.
Hannah Marin: You didn’t exactly earn a shot at it either, Myles. You let your bitch convince you to go after Sienna Jade because if I recall you wanted nothing until she got in your ear.
Myles: Correction love, I earned anything that I wanted thanks to Captain Charisma after our team won at Territorial Invasion, Minerva made the suggestion and chose to take and of you call her a bitch one more time, Jesse is going to be picking up what plastic is left of you, are we clear?
Jesse Barlow: Hey hey hey…. You don’t threaten Hannah. You were rewarded for what? Being eliminated first? He just felt sorry for you and the good Captain didn’t want to make you feel left out. You earned nothing either. So like Hannah said, come on, what do you say? Me and you at Road To Redemption for the National Elite Championship?
Myles: What the hell, why not mate? I really do not care for I know that I am going to beat the shit out of you come Road to Redemption. Matter of fact, I think I am going to do what my girlfriend did in the last match and follow her lead, I’m going to mosey on down there and sit in the commentary booth to watch your match.
Jesse Barlow: Excuse me!?
(“Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi starts to play again as Myles walks toward the ring and then to the announce table where he sits next to Persephone, Rich Russillo and James Peters.)
(Commercial for Ronan Malosi’s brand tape. Some say it’s so tough that no matter how hard you try to pry it off, it’s staying in.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break as ‘Kingslayer’ by Bring Me The Horizon feat. BABYMETAL is playing in the background as Jesse Barlow is leaning against the corner with Hannah Marin on the apron, already in the ring from before commercial break as Bella Braxton is standing at the center of the ring with a mic in her hand as she speaks)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: Already in the ring… accompanied by Hannah Marin… from Hoboken, New Jersey… weighing in at 210 pounds… JESSE BARLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Before long ‘Jazz’ by The Fumes plays up as Colt Hendrix makes his way out to the stage. He looks pumped and ready as he poses at the stage with a confident look on his face before he makes his way down the ramp and headed towards the ring with a straight look on his face as he does so)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from North East, Huston, Texas… weighing in at 290 pounds… THE OUTLAW… COLT HENDRIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Last week wasn’t the best situation for Colt Hendrix and now he’s back and surely better than ever and willing to get redemption for his losses and turn it into a big win tonight if he does beat who’s across from him.
James Peters: No doubt about it, failure is something that any competitor meets and I know very well that Colt Hendrix can understand that, he’s willing to push himself to the limit and get the win and he’s about to do exactly that with the situation that he’s in.
Persephone: Don’t be stupid he lost in humiliating fashion next week it’s a bunch of bullshit, I can’t be bothered.
(Colt makes his way around the ring before going up the steel steps and onto the apron. He enters into the ring and goes up to the top rope as he flexes his muscles and poses before jumping down and making his way over to his corner as ‘Jazz’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: HERE WE GO AS THIS MATCH IS UNDERWAY! Both Jesse and Colt are beginning to circle around the ring, BUT COLT TAKES A STEP FORWARD AND CLOBBERS JESSE WITH A FOREARM!
James Peters: Jesse taken back as he falls into the corner as Colt takes a run forward, BUT JESSE GRABS COLT BY THE HEAD AND THROWS HIM INTO THE CORNER! Colt tried to go head first but that cost him as Jesse grabs the ropes, AND CONNECTS WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZUIGIRI SENDING COLT DOWN! Now Jesse is just caving a hole into the chest of Colt with stomps to his chest, AS HE SLAMS ONE MORE DOWN WITH GOOD MEASURE AND KEEPS IT PRESSED AGAINST COLT!
(Jesse uses his knee as a armrest as he turns over to Myles with a cocky smile on his face as he waves to him at the commentary table)
Jesse Barlow: (Off-Mic) FACE FOR TELEVISION!
Persephone: FINALLY SOMEONE THAT SHARES THE SAME VIEWS AS ME AT THIS COMMENTARY TABLE!
Rich Russillo: Jesse forced to let go as the Ref counts to five. Colt leaning against the bottom rope as Jesse is jumping onto the apron and running forward, AS HE PUNTS HIM STRAIGHT TOWARDS HIS HEAD SENDING HIM BACK INTO THE RING! Jesse entering back into the ring as he’s approaching Colt once more, BUT COLT TACKLES JESSE DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: COLT ATTEMPTING TO SLAM PUNCHES INTO HIS FACE AS HE GRABS JESSE AND THROWS HIM TOWARDS THE ROPES! HE’S GOING FOR 45 COLT! SPINEBUSTER!
Persephone: BUT JESSE HAS THE EYES!
Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE DOESN’T SEE IT AS JESSE GOUGES HIS EYES FORCING COLT TO SEND HIM DOWN TO A KNEE! Jesse transitions it into a headlock now as he keeps it cinched in as he keeps Colt planted down to a knee, but what is he doing?
(Jesse lets go of the hold and pats Colt on the shoulder)
Jesse Barlow: (Off-Mic) Nice try buddy! Here, I’ll give you a free one, try again.
James Peters: COLT DOESN’T NEED TO HEAR THAT TWICE AS HE CHARGES AT JESSE AND GOES FOR GOOD COP! GERMAN SUPLEX PRIMED FOR THE TURNBUCKLES!
Rich Russillo: BUT JESSE LANDS ON HIS FEET!
James Peters: Colt running forward to Jesse, BUT JESSE WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE BRIDGE OF HIS NOSE SENDING HIM DOWN TO A KNEE! Jesse grabbing Colt by the head now as he’s reeling his arm back, AND NOW IS JUST SLAMMING STIFF FOREARM SHOTS TOWARDS HIS NOSE TO COMPLETELY TAKE HIM OFF GUARD! JESSE HAS A SINISTER SMIRK ON HIS FACE AS THE REF IS RUNNING FORWARD TO SEPARATE HIM FROM COLT!
(Colt is beginning to bleed profusely from the nose as Jesse once again turns over to the commentary table)
Jesse Barlow: (Off-Mic) I HOPE YOU’RE SEEING THIS!
Myles: Mate please stop talking to me. I don’t even want to be here.
Persephone: :mjlol: Me and you both buddy, man you might not be Rex but I feel like we’d make great friends!
Myles: Fuck off.
Rich Russillo: Jesse isn’t done as he’s grabbing Colt by his head and sending him towards the ropes as he awaits him at the center of the ring, GG2EZ! THE STIFF PUNCH TO HIS SKULL TAKES COLT BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: Jesse dropping down now as he hooks the leg!
Rich Russillo: BUT COLT GETS THE SHOULDER Up!
James Peters: Jesse’s eyes widen for a moment as he’s back up to his feet. Hannah seems a bit shocked herself but you can just see the confidence ooze out of the both of them.
Rich Russillo: Indeed as Jesse is getting back up to his feet and grabbing the arms of Colt as he uses them to pull him in, AS HE SENDS A KICK TOWARDS HIS FACE! Colt sent down to a knee as he finds it a struggle to recover, BUT JESSE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER KICK KEEPING AHOLD OF THE ARMS! Look at the blood just continue to trickle down the body of Colt Hendrix!
James Peters: It’s clear that Jesse is just enjoying the time he has, AS HE SENDS ONE MORE FOR GOOD MEASURE BEFORE PUSHING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND! I’ll give it to him Colt is putting up a fight, but is it in his best nature to do so? Because it might just cost him if he’s not going to put up a fight.
Persephone: Yeah get this match over with there’s a point where it gets like really boring, besides at this point? We already know who’s going to win.
Myles: I hope it’s Colt.
Rich Russillo: Jesse grabbing him by the arm as he’s forcing Colt back up to his feet and sending him into an Irish whip towards the ropes as Colt runs back, AS COLT ATTEMPTS TO GO FOR A SHOULDER TACKLE! COLT TRIED BUT JESSE SIDE STEPS AND GRABS HIM BY THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AS HE TRIPS HIS LEGS AND TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: AS HE TRANSITIONS IT INTO A CROSSFACE! JESSE HAS THE CROSSFACE LOCKED IN AS HE PULLS BACK AT THE HEAD OF COLT HENDRIX! WHAT A WRETCHED SIGHT TO SEE!
Jesse Barlow: (Off-Mic) IF YOU KNEW BETTER YOU’D KNOW NOT TO GRAB THE ROPES!
Persephone: HAH! BUT COLT DOES IT ANYWAYS!
Rich Russillo: COLT HAS A HOLD OF THE ROPES AS JESSE LOOKS IN PURE ANGER DOWN AT COLT WHO’S STILL FIGHTING! HE CONTINUES TO PUSH HIMSELF DESPITE EVERY MOVE THAT JESSE INFLICTS ON HIM NARROWING HIS CHANCES OF COMING OUT VICTORIOUS EVEN MORE! THE OUTLAW CONTINUES TO FIGHT!
James Peters: Colt is using the ropes to pull himself up as Jesse does not look pleased anymore, AS HE SENDS A KICK TOWARDS HIS GUT FORCING HIM TO FALL TOWARDS A SITTING POSITION! Jesse running to the ropes now as he’s not stopping his assault as he aims right for his head, AND GOES FOR A PENALTY KICK!
Rich Russillo: BUT COLT GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE AND PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: BUT JESSE JUMPS OUT ONTO THE APRON AND KICKS HIM DEAD IN HIS FACE SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! Jesse jumping down from his apron position now as he’s grabbing Colt by his head, AND SLAMMING HIS HEAD DOWN ON THE APRON FOR GOOD MEASURE BEFORE ROLLING HIM BACK INTO THE RING!
Rich Russillo: Jesse seems to be toying with Colt as he’s waiting for him to get back up to his feet once more. Colt using the ropes as he’s up but is stumbling right into Jesse as he runs forward!
James Peters: SITTING DUCK! RUNNING DOUBLE LEG DROPKICK SENDS COLT BACK DOWN! It seems Jesse isn’t going for the pin attempt as he realizes the struggle that Colt put him through as he continues to get the shoulders up and let the match continue. Jesse grabbing Colt and setting up as he seems to be rolling through!
Jesse Barlow: (Off-Mic) THIS IS FOR YOU! Dumb cunt…
Rich Russillo: ETCHED IN STONE! GOGOPLATA LOCKED IN! COLT FLAILING HIS ARMS IN THE AIR TRYING TO ESCAPE BUT HE’S FADING QUICK!
James Peters: AND HE’S OUT! THE REF ISN’T BOTHERING TO CHECK! FOR HIS OWN GOOD HE’S RINGING THE BELL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Kingslayer’ plays up as Jesse pushes Colt away with ease and gets back up to his feet. Hannah Marin makes her way into the ring as with a bright smile on her face, raises Jesse’s arm in the air in victory. Jesse turns his head towards the commentary booth for a moment and scoffs as he continues his celebration around the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… JESSE BARLOW!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Certainly an interesting match for sure. Jesse made easy work of the newcomer and came out victorious making a statement as he continues down his path. He’s not going to take shit from anyone and as he said, hell he might even get a title shot too if he’s feeling generous
James Peters: And I’m sure Myles is keeping a close eye on him aren’t you?
(Jesse once again looks over to Myles as he climbs up to the turnbuckle as Myles pats the National Elite Championship, keeping his place at the commentary booth as Jesse chuckles as both him and Hannah leave the ring as that’s the last shot seen as Voltage fades away from ringside.)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break as it pans to a designated interview area with Sofia Clarke sitting at a chair with a smile on her face. Across from her is another chair as she looks with a smile on her face as she begins to speak.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen here we have someone that has made his presence known here in the Land of Elite recently. A star in the making who recently won a match at the Voltage Free-Per-View, Wicked Games to contend himself for the New Breed Championship. Joining me now, Donovan Duke.
(Before long muffled cheers from the World 1 Theatre would be heard as Donovan Duke would enter into the camera frame. He would take a seat at a chair and situate himself with a smile on his face as he would look towards Sofia and shake her hand politely.)
Donovan Duke: Hi Sofia, how are you?
Sofia Clarke: I’m doing pretty good, but we’re here to talk about you, so how about you?
Donovan Duke: I can’t really lie to you on that right? Past all the pain that I went through at Wicked Games, all the agony, all the chair shots, I feel a sort of completion. I feel excited, I feel amped, I feel pumped, why shouldn’t I be?
Sofia Clarke: So let’s talk about this New Breed Title match that you’ve got speaking of Wicked Games, beating Azrael and Lisa Wren. Tell me, how are you feeling heading into the match itself?
Donovan Duke: Well I guess the cat’s out of the bag. I finally get the chance to speak in front of a camera on a televised show so let me say it,I got myself a New Breed Title match, and it’s been a long time coming for me. Like I said before, I hit the biggest jackpot to date for myself. I struck gold, and if you think that I’m going to just let go of a particular opportunity like this so easily, then you’re not going to make it out of this match on your own feet, Andre. I’m coming in with a fire that’s miles beyond any sort of fire I had leading into me getting this opportunity, all you can do? Is sit back and watch, because I’m not going to disappoint, I don’t need to say that twice.
Sofia Clarke: Speaking of Andre Walker, with an opponent like him who’s been in the ring with a ton of people who just encapsulate the energy of this company, how do you think you fare against him?
Donovan Duke: You can’t really deny Andre Walker is the embodiment of a Champion. He has the mannerism, the swagger, and the skills, he’s one hell of a competitor, I don’t think there’s any denying that when you look at it from a factual standpoint. But there’s one mistake he’s made, and that’s the fact that he doesn’t consider me a threat, yet despite that, perfectly fine by me. I’ve been portrayed as the underdog in this type of scenario. I don’t see people betting on me, I don’t see people believing in my chances to win, but that’s ok. Because I always manage to thrive in situations like this, and if I’m Andre? Well at this point I’m just going to have to find out for myself. Because I’m putting all my chips on the table, and if nobody is going to bet on me? Well then I’m just betting on myself.
Sofia Clarke: Well speaking of because I can clearly see the confidence that you have, is there any sort of shift in mindset that comes with this match?
Donovan Duke: Well I’m sure that stays the same for anyone, but for me? It’s motivation beyond any other, it’s more of an incentive to continue to push forward and make myself better so I can be certain that I’m able to capture the New Breed Championship. I’m on that road to success, there will be those bumps, I’ve met a few of them, but believe me, ain’t none of them are going to stop me.
Sofia Clarke: We’ve been throwing around a bit of “if” and “what” questions around so I’m going to ask it straight, do you believe you have what it takes to beat Andre Walker for the New Breed Championship?
Donovan Duke: You can’t win them all around here, I’ve faced that first hand. There have been some points that I’ve come up short and I’ve been met with nothing, that’s just how it goes. But just as every competent elitist has, and it just comes with evolution, it’s the fact that you learn a new lesson every single time. You put a new tool in the toolbox for safe keeping, and it just makes you better. I’ve accumulated enough of those in my career to know the ins and outs of Elite Answers Wrestling. And with this big opportunity I have this isn’t going to be like any other match for me, and I’ve said to a plethora of people before that I love the challenge, I love the rush that comes out of it and whoever the hell wants to give me that then go right ahead, but it seems Andre Walker is the one on the radar that’s going to give me that. There’s a reason he won that New Breed Championship at Territorial Invasion and he’s going to make that known, shout it from the rooftops, but it’s the matter of unknowingness that surrounds this Gentlemen from Oklahoma for him. I mean look at him, look at every word he says towards me, I can see it, he can’t deny it, he thinks, very well, that his title is in safe hands. That there’s nothing in the word that’s going to stop him, and he’s very sure of it, not even me.
(Donovan takes a moment to close his eyes and shake his head)
Donovan Duke: But I digress, you can’t please the masses, if he wants to come up to the Gentlemen’s Table, go right ahead. Take your chance, but this isn’t a game of luck for me, no no, it’s chess. Every move is calculated Andre, you just don’t know that yet.
Sofia Clarke: In that case, I can see that you’ve familiarized yourself with the fact that people have been known to not take you so seriously.
Donovan Duke: I can’t stop them can I? It’s just how their head works, it’s either they’re pieces of shit or just not, plain and simple. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop there, it doesn’t work like that. I continue to chant my mantra and move straight forward, because if I listened to them, if I gave in so easily to their doubts, then I wouldn’t have won against Pennywise and Lisa Wren.
Sofia Clarke: So in a way, do you think Andre is underestimating you?
Donovan Duke: I’d say so, but what’s new. I’ve been looked at on Voltage as some sort of ragdoll, who can be thrown around from one opponent to the next. You get a win, like at Wicked Games for example, and that mindset just doesn’t change. Andre believes that because he hasn’t seen my work, so self absorbed in himself to the point where anything else? Well anything else just goes right through him. I’m not going to try to desperately turn his head, he can think what he wants, I just hope he realizes these next few weeks who I am, because I’m very sure that we’re going to get acquainted with one another one way or another. Maybe then, but who knows. If he does? Good on him, if he doesn’t? That’s just his undoing.
Sofia Clarke: Just a few days ago on Friday Night Dynasty you came to the brand to join the commentary table as Andre Walker made quick work of Allen Hunter. What are your thoughts after that?
Donovan Duke: Well it was just like I expected. I never doubted his work in the first place and I haven’t been short on words saying he’s a great competitor in that ring. He prides himself holding that New Breed Championship and I commend him for that, just like anyone else would. Yet just like anyone else would, he has his flaws. The confidence he has, can so easily be turned to overconfidence at it’s best. As minimal as it was I’ve learned a lot about Andre. If he wasn’t satisfied facing Allen Walker, then maybe I’ll fill that quota. Maybe I’ll please his needs, but I’ll need to get through his thick skull first in order to do so.
Sofia Clarke: Speaking of calendar dates I think we could also talk about last week when Andre Walker came out to “scout” you and ultimately, costed you your match against Jesse Barlow, what are your thoughts on that?
Donovan Duke: I’ve made it known it wasn’t the outcome I was expecting. I was close, as always, like fingertips away, but something always managed to come in my way, to absolutely soil it. At the end of the day I can’t really blame Andre, he did what he had to do because once again, it’s those delusions of grandeur. If he thinks ultimately just because he did that, that his conclusion is that I’m not good enough for him? Then please, he’s jumping to assumptions. Those double standards that are held high above my head, because I’m partially new here doesn’t mean I’m as good as the rest. Just because I’ve met failure at almost every corner suddenly means I’m just not good enough for this place. It stings, but you just have to go out there and put out your best work so once they see you in that ring? Well, there won’t be any doubting anymore, will there? No matter what they say I’m bringing a fight to Andre, and even after that? I don’t think he’ll be able to doubt for one bit the fact that I’m good enough to fight for that New Breed Championship to begin with.
Sofia Clarke: Do you think in any sort of way, in your head of course, that there’s a possibility that Andre Walker will retain his New Breed Championship when he faces you?
Donovan Duke: I’m not going to be stupid and try to shield it from my head, of course. But I’m not thinking like that, it would be a bit stupid, like giving your opponent that benefit of being right. He’s a good ass wrestler, I’ve said that, but that’s not going to stop me from having the belief that I’m going to win. I know Andre believes wholeheartedly that he can just easily step over me, please. If he doesn’t believe in me then I’m going to make him believe so. I’m going to put my best foot forward in making sure that he comes out empty handed and I have a little bit of gold under my belt to accumulate for the jackpot. Till then? Well I guess he’ll just have to “bare” with me a bit more won’t he?
Sofia Clarke: If you do win the New Breed Championship, you’ll have the eyes of not just Voltage, but Dynasty and Showdown as well coming for you, anyone in particular that you’d like to face?
Donovan Duke: I get the big red X painted on my back and I welcome that. But as for people that I’d like to face? There’s no one in specific, I don’t expect to gun for one person and then leave out the rest, first come first serve. Whoever wants to step up to the plate and challenge for the title around my waist I’m not going to stop them, I’m not going to beg for otherwise, I’m willing to fight anyone. Recently on Dynasty at House of Glass you saw Impact, a World Title contender, go for the PURE Championship, if it’s a scenario like that, then by all means go for it. What matters is that at the end of the day, if I do capture the New Breed Championship, then I’m opening my door, and this cowboy wants you to bring it to his doorstep.
Sofia Clarke: Well, that’s all the questions I had for you, thanks for joining me tonight Donovan.
Donovan Duke: No, thank you for having me.
Sofia Clarke: Anytime, till then, Andre Walker versus Donovan Duke, New Breed Championship, we’ll see you then folks.
(The last shot is of Sofia’s smiling face as Donovan bids her adieu and Voltage transitions to elsewhere from there.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside and cuts to Bella Braxton, who is standing in the center of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TAG TEAM EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER QUALIFYING MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“It’s Corona Time” begins to blast across the PA system and Terry Chambers and TLA step out from behind the guerilla curtain.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… THE TEAM OF TERRY CHAMBERS AND TLA… THE CORONA HOMBRES!!!
(Terry and TLA smirk and begin to make their way down to the ring.)
James Peters: I’m excited for this match and I’m excited for these two rematches of sorts. Terry Chambers and Darcy May Morgan waged one hell of a war back at Bloodsport in August, where Terry was able to KO Darcy and pick up a huge win for himself.
Rich Russillo: Exactly, and we all saw what happened back at Wicked Games between Drake and TLA, and that situation just hasn’t resolved itself, if it ever will, to be honest. More than any of that though, this match is being contested under unique circumstances. If the Corona Hombres win, then TLA will qualify for a chance to compete for the EAW World Championship at Road to Redemption.
James Peters: On the other hand, if House of Leaders pick up the victory, then Drake King will find himself with a chance to compete in the Extreme Elimination Chamber.
Rich Russillo: :mjlol:
(Terry and TLA are in the ring now and have taken their corner. They talk strategy as their music fades out. It’s soon replaced by “House of Balloons/ Glass Table Girls” by the Weeknd.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS… THE TEAM OF DARCY MAY MORGAN AND DRAKE KING… HOUSE OF LEADERS!!!
(Darcy walks out first, followed by Drake, and there are no looks exchanged between them. It’s clear that tensions are high between these two, and that Darcy doesn’t want anything to do with Drake. She tried to make the most of the situation during the week, but after seeing Drake’s face earlier and hearing his voice, it’s clear she wants nothing to do with him.)
James Peters: I really have no idea how these two are going to make it work tonight. Darcy has let it be known that she’s had it with absolutely everything that’s gone on so far this season, and she wants nothing to do with Drake.
Rich Russillo: Drake seems determined that the two members of House of Leaders can put things behind them and move forward in a positive manner.
Persephone: Drake is also an idiot.
(Darcy and Drake are in the ring, and there is a brief discussion between the two. Drake offers to begin the match, but Darcy points at the apron and tells him to get out. Terry and TLA seem amused by the exchange, but Drake goes along with Darcy’s wishes and gets on the apron. Terry decides to start for the Corona Hombres, and with the competitors set, the referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Rich Russillo: Well Drake offered to start this match off, but Darcy is having none of it. She’s in the ring and so is Terry Chambers. Bloodsport rematch, y’all!
Persephone: Yeah because Bloodsport TOTALLY worked out for Darcy. :mjlol:
James Peters: Terry calls for a lock up but Darcy immediately kicks him in the gut! She wraps an arm around his neck, looking to spike him in the mat with a DDT, but Terry is able to brush her off, and he whips Darcy into the ropes! Darcy ducks a lariat attempt on the rebound and she puts the brakes on! Both competitors turn around and it’s Darcy catching Terry in the chest with a dropkick! Terry stumbles back and Darcy dives towards Terry’s feet, bringing him down to the mat! She looks to wrap him in a figure four, but Terry kicks her away! Darcy runs the ropes but Terry is up! He catches Darcy with a big boot to the face!
Rich Russillo: Ever the competitor, Darcy is right back up. Both of them are circling one another, and it’s Darcy who throws the first shot! She nails Terry in the jaw with a right hand, and catches him with a knee to the gut. Darcy tries to toss Terry into the corner, but he is able to block and it’s Darcy who finds herself pressed against the turnbuckles! Terry hammers away on Darcy, forcing her down into a sitting position! Terry with a knee to the face and he grabs Darcy by the hair, pulling her out of the corner!
Persephone: Darcy fires back with some punches to the gut, but they don’t seem to phase big bad Terry Shamburger! He’s got Darcy in position… and she’s planted with a massive belly to back suplex! Terry hooks the leg for a cover!
James Peters: Darcy kicks out!
Rich Russillo: Terry doesn’t waste time and stays on the attack. He nails Darcy with a massive right hand and hauls her back to a vertical base. Terry with another right hand, and he goes for a third! Darcy manages to block the third punch, and she throws a forearm that catches Terry in the jaw! Terry fires back with a forearm of his own, which staggers Darcy and allows Terry to grab her by the hair and drag her to the corner! He bounces Darcy’s face off the top turnbuckle and presses her back into the corner! Terry with a massive chop to Darcy’s chest!
Persephone: :yikes: That left a handprint!
James Peters: Terry with several shoulder thrusts to Darcy’s gut and he looks to pull her out of the corner. Darcy with a desperation rake of the eyes though and she kicks Terry in the stomach! Darcy with another kick, and she grabs Terry by the hair and drops him face first across her knee!!!
(The camera shot widens to show Drake eagerly holding out his hand.)
Drake King: (off-mic) Sister Darcy! Tag me in! I got this!
Darcy May Morgan: :mjlol:
Rich Russillo: Darcy completely ignores Drake’s request for a tag and she stomps on Terry’s face and head! No doubt, ‘The Leading Lady’ is competing tonight with a lot of angst and a lot of aggression. Since having a career defining moment back at Pain for Pride, it seems to have been one setback after another for the reigning Cash in the Vault holder. A lot of people seem to be questioning whether or not Darcy has what it takes to successfully cash in her briefcase and become Universal Women’s Champion.
Persephone: I mean, why should anyone believe in Darcy at this point? She’s like done nothing but shit the bed since coming to Voltage. We all know she’s gunna botch her cash-in. That’s why the bitch is so afraid to pull the trigger.
James Peters: I won’t speculate about Darcy’s thoughts when it comes to the cash-in, but I do know that she’s taken control of this match. She drops a knee down across Terry’s face and follows up with a beautiful standing moonsault knee drop! Darcy hooks the legs and goes for her first cover of the match!
Persephone: Terry kicks out!
Rich Russillo: Darcy mounts Terry and hammers away on him for a few moments before getting back to her feet. She drags Terry over to the corner and bounces his face off the middle turnbuckle. Darcy keeps Terry in place, leaps in the air, and nails Terry in the back of the head with a leaping double foot stomp! Darcy grabs the ropes and presses her right foot on Terry’s head, and she is smushing his face into the turnbuckle.
James Peters: The referee is warning her to get Terry out of the corner but Darcy just rolls her eyes in response.
Referee: (off-mic) ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…
Rich Russillo: Darcy lets up, but not before viciously stomping Terry in the back of the head. Drake is heard cheering on his partner, but Darcy pays him no mind. She pulls Terry up and attempts to whip him across the ring! Terry blocks and throws a right hand but Darcy blocks the shot, nails Terry with a slap to the face, and she sends him across the ring! Darcy takes off running and she flies into Terry… executing a beautiful running, jumping knee strike! She might have broken Terry’s jaw with that!
Persephone: I highly doubt that, but it was perfectly hit. Kudos to Darcy for not fucking that up, I guess.
James Peters: Terry somehow manages to push Darcy away from him and he staggers out of the corner! Darcy quickly climbs the ropes, and screams at Terry to turn around and she flies! Darcy looking for a diving double knee drop… but Terry leaps in the air and hits her with a dropkick! Darcy crashes and burns, and that allows Terry to sprint to his corner and make the tag to TLA!
Rich Russillo: TLA in the ring now and instead of going towards Darcy, he runs to the opposite corner! TLA slams into Drake and sends him spilling onto the ground! A huge grin crosses the face of ‘La Pantera Sexual’ and he directs all his attention at Darcy. Darcy is pulling herself up and TLA immediately pounces! He absolutely lights up Darcy with fast striking kicks and punches, and Darcy is unable to defend herself! TLA with a handful of hair now and he connects with a ‘Very Mexican Uppercut’! Darcy’s head violently snaps back and TLA follows it up with a ‘Swag Shot’! Darcy is put down with a snap suplex and TLA is going to the ropes!
James Peters: ‘420’!!! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS CONNECTS ON DARCY MAY MORGAN AND TLA HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: DRAKE BREAKS UP THE PIN!
Rich Russillo: ‘The Last Messiah’ is all over TLA now and that brings Terry back into the ring! Terry with a big boot that forces Drake back against the ropes and he charges forward, knocking Drake back to the outside with a massive lariat! Terry drops to the outside, while TLA is shaking out the cobwebs and going back to work on Darcy! He has her wrapped in a front facelock, but Darcy is able to fight her way free and she runs the ropes! She is able to knock TLA off his feet with a clothesline, but the former World Heavyweight Champion doesn’t stay down! Darcy looks for another clothesline, but TLA is able to duck this one, and he catches Darcy with a kick to the stomach. He grabs her and spikes her head into the mat with a DDT!
James Peters: We still have action going on here on the outside. Terry has taken Drake and thrown him into the barricades. Needless to say, Drake hasn’t really endeared himself to his fellow Voltage Elitists since returning and Terry puts an exclamation point on that fact by grabbing Drake and throwing him into the ring steps.
Persephone: That’s what he gets for breaking up that pin. I was already ready for this match to be over.
Rich Russillo: TLA has opted not to go for the cover on Darcy. Instead, he drags her over to the Corona Hombres’ corner and makes the tag to Terry. They work in tandem to hoist Darcy up… and there’s ‘SSS’!!! Super Swag Shot to Darcy May Morgan! TLA with a rather vicious pimp slap that spins Darcy around and right into an incredible ‘Moment of Silence’ headbutt from Terry! Darcy collapses and Terry with the cover!!!!
James Peters: Darcy manages to kick out!
Persephone: :noah: Why does she have to be so resilient?! That shit is mad annoying :noah:
Rich Russillo: Beautiful word to describe Darcy, Seph. She is resilient. One thing no one can ever doubt about Darcy is her absolute sheer will to win. She will fight until the very last breath and that is something I find extremely admirable.
Persephone: You would. Anything to prolong a stupid match like this amirite?
James Peters: I definitely wouldn’t describe this match as stupid. There’s a lot on the line tonight as either TLA or Drake King will qualify for Road to Redemption’s Extreme Elimination Chamber match with a victory.
Rich Russillo: TLA pulls Darcy back to the corner and TLA makes the quick tag. They double team Darcy in the corner before the referee steps in. On the opposite side of the ring, Drake has made his way back onto the apron, and it’s plain as day that he doesn’t like to see his partner in peril.
Persephone: I mean at this point, the bitch should just swallow her pride and find some way to make a tag. She’s a sitting duck right now and is never going to be able to beat both of these losers by herself.
Rich Russillo: TLA drags Darcy to the center of the ring and brings her into a sitting position thanks to a nice little snapmare. TLA with several elbow drops to the top of Darcy’s head and he’s following that up with several knee strikes to the back. He drives his knee between Darcy’s shoulders and grabs both of her arms, pulling back on them. The referee checks with Darcy to see if she wants to give up, but we know she’s not. Darcy continues to bear the brunt of the offense from the Corona Hombres at this point, and TLA works them both up into a standing position! He switches to a Full Nelson, lifts Darcy up, and converts it into a Full Nelson Slam! Darcy is flat on her back and TLA steps on her throat! Darcy starts flailing her arms, and the referee gives TLA a warning. He feigns innocence and lifts his foot up, just long enough for the referee to stop counting, and then he goes right back to choking Darcy!
Drake King: (off-mic) Oh come on! This is illegal!
Referee: (off-mic) ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR… FI-
TLA: (off-mic) Iight, chill. We tranquilo.
Persephone: Ohmygod, why is he stopping?? This thing could have ended with a disqualification!
James Peters: And that won’t do TLA any good. A DQ for the Corona Hombres would give Drake a pass into the chamber.
Persephone: Who cares?!
Rich Russillo: TLA cares because he wants to go into the chamber himself and have the opportunity to become a two-time world champion.
Persephone: How boring.
James Peters: TLA has Darcy in the corner now and he is unloading chop after chop to her chest. Darcy is really taking a lot of punishment in this match now, and the Corona Hombres are doing a great job of keeping her isolated from her corner. I’m not sure if Darcy’s pride would allow her to make a tag, but Drake could certainly tag himself in and it seems like TLA and Terry are making sure that doesn’t happen. TLA with another chop and he Irish whips Darcy across the ring! She slams into the corner and that allows TLA to come barreling towards Darcy! He hits a nice running clothesline in the corner and there’s ANOTHER ‘Very Mexican Uppercut’! Darcy’s head snaps back! Ouch. :lupe:
Rich Russillo: TLA pulls Darcy out of the corner, pulls off another snapmare, and this time he kicks Darcy in the back of the head with a shoot style kick! TLA with a cover!
James Peters: Darcy kicks out!
Rich Russillo: TLA takes her back to the Hombres corner and Terry makes the tag. Great teamwork being displayed by TLA and Terry here tonight. They are clearly taking advantage of the situation between Drake and Darcy.
Persephone: Terry with a punch to Darcy’s ribs, and hopefully he broke a few. Maybe they will puncture some organ or whatever, and we will be forced to call this match.
James Peters: That’s gory.
Rich Russillo: Terry with an elbow drop to the top of the head and he hoists Darcy up! Terry holds on for a few seconds, allowing all the blood to rush to Darcy’s head, and he drops her down into a brainbuster! Terry with another cover on Darcy!
Persephone: S2G… I’m about to get really angry…
James Peters: Shoulder up for Darcy, but Terry’s not bothered. He quickly pulls Darcy into a double chickenwing AND TRANSITIONS IT INTO A TIGER SUPLEX! Darcy’s back is slammed into the mat and Terry follows up with a leg drop that lands across her throat! Terry pulls Darcy towards him and he captures her in another double chickenwing! This time he pulls Darcy up and lets her hang in the air… before dropping her down into a facebuster!
Rich Russillo: Darcy is in some serious trouble right now. The Corona Hombres are just toying with her at this point. Terry has taken her back to the corner and made the tag to TLA, and they both stomp Darcy into a sitting position! Terry backs up and takes off running… RUNNING BIG BOOT TO DARCY! TLA RACES AROUND THE RING AND HE FOLLOWS UP WITH A RUNNING CANNONBALL SENTON!!!!
James Peters: Drake is visibly upset right now and he is pacing around on the apron. You see the frustration on his face. He desperately wants to get into this match.
Persephone: I really don’t care if he does or not.
Rich Russillo: TLA pulls Darcy away from the corner and it looks like he is trying to get her in position for the ‘Mexican Destroyer.’ She’s doing everything she can to fight him off, but TLA clubs her in the back! Darcy drops to her knees and TLA tries again, but DARCY! DARCY GRABS TLA’S FEET AND PULLS HIM DOWN! SHE QUICKLY ROLLS HIM UP WITH A SCHOOL BOY!!!
James Peters: TLA kicks out and jumps to his feet! Darcy is crawling towards the ropes but TLA with a kick to her back! Darcy’s fingertips brush the bottom rope but TLA has her by the ankle and is pulling her away! Darcy kicks and fights, seemingly coming back to life! TLA lets her go and tries to stomp her in the leg, but Darcy rolls out of the way! She crawls to the ropes and latches on, and the referee has no choice but to order TLA away from her!
Rich Russillo: Darcy pulls herself onto the apron and drops to the ground, and looks at Drake. He is heading over to the check on his partner.
Drake King: (off-mic) Sister Darcy, are you okay?
(Drake tries to help Darcy up by gently taking her arm, but Darcy quickly shoves him off.)
Darcy May Morgan: (off-mic) DON’T TOUCH ME EVER!
(A sigh escapes from Drake’s lips.)
Drake King: (off-mic) Sister Darcy, I’m going to need you to be reasonable right now…
(A look of pure anger crosses Darcy’s face and she shoves Drake again.)
Darcy May Morgan: (off-mic) The fact you have the actual audacity to tell me to be reasonable has got to be some version of a joke.
(While Drake and Darcy argue, Terry and TLA are conversing with one another in the middle of the ring. They see Drake and Darcy fighting and both of them grin at one another.)
Persephone: The fuck are they about to do?
Rich Russillo: THE CORONA HOMBRES TAKE OFF RUNNING AND BOTH OF THEM DIVE OVER THE TOP ROPE! SIMULTANEOUS TOPE CON HILOS!!!!
James Peters: DRAKE AND DARCY TURN AROUND AND THEY MOVE! TLA AND TERRY CRASH AND BURN! AND DRAKE AND DARCY LOOK AT ONE ANOTHER! THEY BEGIN PUTTING THE BOOTS TO TLA AND TERRY! HOUSE OF LEADERS ARE KICKING AND STOMPING ON THE CORONA HOMBRES!
Persephone: Okay! Are we just gunna ignore the fact Terry Shamburger just tried to do a tope con hilo?! :mjlol: Loooooooooooooooooord look at him.
Rich Russillo: FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS ENTIRE MATCH DARCY AND DRAKE ARE WORKING TOGETHER! DRAKE HAS TERRY! DARCY HAS TLA! THEY WHIP THE CORONA HOMBRES INTO OPPOSITE RING POSTS! TERRY AND TLA SLUMP THE GROUND AND IT’S DARCY WHO RACES TOWARDS TERRY! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE! DRAKE RACES TOWARDS TLA AND HE DELIVERS WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE OF HIS OWN! DRAKE AND DARCY GRAB TLA AND TERRY AND BOUNCE THEIR FACES OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! DRAKE THROWS TLA BACK INTO THE RING AND DARCY QUICKLY JUMPS ON THE APRON! TERRY IS STILL STANDING AND THERE GOES DARCY! HANDSTAND HURRICANRANA OFF THE APRON OF THE RING BRINGS TERRY CHAMBERS DOWN!
James Peters: DRAKE IS RIGHT THERE! HE QUICKLY PULLS TERRY UP AND HOOKS HIM FOR ‘ASCENSION’! THE PEDIGREE CONNECTS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND DRAKE GRABS TERRY AND RAMS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE STEPS!
Persephone: DARCY IS BACK IN THE RING AND SHE PUTS TLA DOWN WITH A BULLDOG! DRAKE IS BACK ON THE APRON AND HE IS BEGGING FOR THE TAG!
Drake King: (off-mic) SISTER DARCY PLEASE!
Darcy May Morgan: (off-mic) Fine. But don’t you dare screw this up for me.
Rich Russillo: :blessed: HE HATH COME INTO THE MATCH! ‘THE LAST MESSIAH’ IS FINALLY IN THE RING! :blessed:
James Peters: :blessed: IT’S LIKE THE SKIES PARTED AND THE LIGHT OF HEAVEN IS SHINING DOWN IN THE RING! DRAKE KING IS ON TOP OF TLA AND HE IS BEATING THE TAR OUT OF HIM! DRAKE IS THE FRESHEST COMPETITOR IN THIS MATCH AND HE IS ABSOLUTELY TEARING INTO TLA RIGHT NOW!
Persephone: TLA IS DOING WHAT HE CAN TO FEND DRAKE OFF BUT IT’S NOT WORKING! DRAKE IS TO STRONG RIGHT NOW! DRAKE HAS TLA BY THE HAIR AND HE IS DRAGGING HIM UP. DRAKE THROWS TLA INTO THE CORNER AND HE CRASHED INTO HIM WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! DRAKE UNLOADING RIGHTS AND LEFTS NOW! HE IS HOLDING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BACK! OVER AND OVER DRAKE’S FISTS CONNECT WITH EL PAPI’S FACE!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE HAS STOMPED TLA DOWN INTO A SITTING POSITION AND HE IS DRIVING HIS KNEE INTO TLA’S FACE REPEATEDLY! THE REFEREE IS TELLING DRAKE TO BACK OFF, BUT DRAKE WILL NOT LISTEN! HE SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO TLA’S FACE ONE MORE TIME AND I JUST HEARD A SICKENING CRACK! HE MIGHT HAVE BROKEN TLA’S NOSE WITH THAT LAST STRIKE!
Persephone: :blessed: :blessed: :blessed: BLOOD! BLOOD! THERE IS FINALLY BLOOD! TLA’S BLEEDING FROM THE NOSE AND THAT SEEMS TO HAVE IGNITED SOMETHING ELSE INSIDE OF DRAKE! HE PULLS TLA UP BY THE HAIR AND HEADBUTTS THE SHIT OUT OF HIM! MORE BLOOD IS POURING FROM TLA’S NOSE RIGHT NOW AND DRAKE DRAGS THE MAN TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! DRAKE STOMPS ON TLA’S LEG UNTIL THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IS ON HIS KNEES AND DRAKE STILL HAS A HANDFUL OF TLA’S HAIR!
Drake King: (off-mic) YOU DO NOT BELONG HERE!
James Peters: DRAKE WITH A STIFF KICK RIGHT TO TLA’S FACE AND THAT MIGHT HAVE JUST KNOCKED LA PANTERA SEXUAL SILLY! DRAKE HAS TLA’S ARM AND HE PULLS HIM BACK INTO A SITTING POSITION, AND THERE’S A RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE!
Rich Russillo: BUT DRAKE IS NOT DONE! DRAKE WITH TWO MORE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKES AND SURELY TLA’S NOSE IS SHATTERED AT THIS POINT! TLA IS BARELY FUNCTIONING AT THIS POINT AND DRAKE RUNS THE ROPES! ‘THE GUILLOTINE’!!! THE SICK KICK JUST CONNECTED WITH TLA AND THIS MATCH IS OVER!!!!
Persephone: TERRY CHAMBERS DUMB ASS JUST SAVED THIS MATCH!!!!
James Peters: TERRY SLID INTO THE RING AND BROKE UP THE PIN JUST AS THE REFEREE’S HAND WAS ABOUT TO HIT THE MAT FOR THE THIRD TIME!
Rich Russillo: LOOK AT DRAKE’S FACE! FUCK! LOOK AT HIS EYES! HE IS ABSOLUTELY SEETHING RIGHT NOW!
Persephone: :damn: THE DEVIL IS INSIDE OF DRAKE KING! HE IS SEEING RED! DRAKE JUST DROPPED DOWN AND HE IS BEATING THE FUCK OUT OF TERRY CHAMBERS! THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO PULL DRAKE OFF OF TERRY BUT DRAKE JUST SHOVED THE REFEREE! DISQUALIFY HIM RIGHT NOW AND END THIS MATCH, REF!!!!
James Peters: DARCY IS IN THE RING RIGHT NOW AND SHE IS TRYING TO REASON WITH THE REFEREE! THE LAST THING DARCY WANTS IS ANOTHER LOSS ON HER RECORD AND THAT’S WHAT A DQ WOULD DO! DARCY IS PLEADING WITH THE REFEREE! SHE IS TELLING HIM THAT DRAKE IS NOT IN HIS RIGHT MIND!
Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO MAKE DARCY GET OUT OF THE RING BUT SHE BRUSHES PAST HIM AND GOES TO DRAKE! DARCY GRABS DRAKE’S ARM RIGHT AS HE GOES TO THROW ANOTHER PUNCH AT TERRY, AND DRAKE WITH AN ELBOW! DRAKE JUST HIT DARCY WITH AN ELBOW! THE BLOW CATCHES DARCY OFF GUARD AND SHE FALLS, AND DRAKE SEES THAT HE HIT HIS OWN PARTNER!
Drake King: (off-mic) FRICK! NO! SHOOT! DANG! SISTER DARCY! I DIDN’T MEAN THAT! :noah:
Persephone: Drake has stopped beating on Terry and he is trying to check on Darcy now! Darcy’s mouth is busted open from where that elbow connected and she looks absolutely infuriated right now.
Drake King: (off-mic) Sister Darcy… please…
James Peters: Terry has rolled to the apron and is trying to collect himself, but right now, I’m curious as fuck to see what is about to go down between Drake and Darcy! :lupe:
Darcy May Morgan: .
Drake King: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: TLA IS BACK UP AND HE IS BEHIND DRAKE AND DARCY! HE GRABS THEM AND SLAMS THEIR HEADS TOGETHER! HE LETS DARCY DROP AND NAILS DRAKE WITH A ‘SWAG SHOT’! HE THROWS DRAKE SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST AND KICKS DARCY OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: TLA SCRAMBLES TO HIS CORNER AND HE MAKES THE TAG TO TERRY! TERRY IN THE RING AND HE HAS DRAKE! ‘CHAMBERS OF PAIN’! THE FUTURE SHOCK DDT CONNECTS WITH DRAKE! TLA IS UP ON THE ROPES NOW AND HE TAKES TO THE SKIES! ‘BURNOUT’! THE 360 SENTON CONNECTS ON DRAKE AND THE CORONA HOMBRES CALL THAT COMBINATION ‘BURNOUT OF PAIN.’ TLA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND TERRY THROWS HIMSELF ON TOP OF DRAKE FOR THE COVER!!!
Persephone: DRAKE THE REDEEMER GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!
James Peters: Tensions are high in this match right now with so much on the line. Terry has pulled Drake up and has forced him back against the ropes. They jostle back and forth for position before it’s Drake who ends up in the corner. Terry clubs Drake in the top of the head before stiffing him in the jaw with a closed fist that nearly knocked one of Drake’s teeth out! Terry spins Drake around and hooks him for a German Suplex, but Drake has enough wherewithal to grab the ropes and block Terry from being successful. Terry replies with a clubbing blow to the back of Drake’s skull and this time he successfully takes Drake down with the German! Terry with a bridge for the pin!
Rich Russillo: Kick out from Drake!
Persephone: This match continues to drag on and I’m not sure why. I wish someone would just win the damn thing already.
James Peters: Terry’s up and he kicks Drake in the back, keeping him from getting back to his feet. He follows it up with a double axe-handle, and now he’s mounted Drake! Terry with more closed fist punches to Drake’s jaw, and there’s a lot of force behind those nasty looking shots. Terry rolls off Drake and goes to the ropes, uses them to gain some momentum, and he slams Drake’s face into the mat with a somersault neckbreaker! Terry pulls Drake up and grabs him around the waist… looking for a powerbomb, but Drake is able to block! Terry with another clubbing blow to the back, but Drake lands a few blows of his own to Terry’s rib cage area. Drake is able to lift Terry up and send him spilling onto the mat with a back body drop! Drake quickly drops a few knees down onto Terry’s ribs to soften them up and he locks him in a crossface! Drake has Terry in a crossface!
Rich Russillo: Terry is fighting though! Drake is trying to keep the hold locked in! Terry is using his forearms to lift up and he is attempting to make his way to the ropes! Drake is losing his grip. Terry is just so powerful and so determined to make the absolute most out of every match this season. He doesn’t want to let any opportunity to win slip away at all. It’s that determination that is driving him forward and he reaches for the ropes with his free hand! He is almost there! He is so close! Drake desperately tries to drag them both back towards the center of the ring, but Terry does it! He gets the ropes!
Persephone: Drake breaks the hold but he quickly gets up! He stomps on Terry’s hand and pulls him back to the center of the ring! Drake looks for a heel hook, but Terry twists his body and he kicks Drake away from him! Terry begins to crawl to his corner BUT HOLY SHIT! DRAKE WITH A BURST OF SPEED AND HE JUST CAUGHT TERRY WITH ‘JUDGEMENT DAY’!!! THE CURB STOMP JUST CONNECTED WITH TERRY INCHES FROM TLA’S OUTSTRETCHED HAND AND LOOK AT THE SMILE ON DRAKE’S FACE! HE KNOWS HE JUST WON THIS MATCH AND HE THROWS HIMSELF INTO TLA… KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON!!! DRAKE DRAGS TERRY BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!
James Peters: :skip: The fuck?
Persephone: :wtf: DRAKE JUST GOT UP AND STOPPED THE COUNT HIMSELF! THIS DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!
(Drake turns around to face his rather stunned tag team partner.)
Drake King: (off-mic) Sister Darcy, you take this one and get back what Terry took from you at Bloodsport.
(Darcy looks suspicious.)
Drake King: (off-mic) Trust me.
(Drake heads for his corner, his hand out for a tag.)
Darcy May Morgan: (off-mic) Are you sure? You have the match won.
(Drake beams at Darcy, a sparkle in his eyes.)
Drake King: (off-mic) I’m sure!
James Peters: Drake goes to make the tag to Darcy so she can finish th-
Persephone: THAT BITCH JUST SPIT IN DRAKE’S FACE AND HOPPED OFF THE APRON!
(With Darcy’s spit dripping down his shocked face, Drake looks at Darcy who is staring at him with a smug look on her face.)
Darcy May Morgan: (off-mic) FUCK YOU, DRAKE!
Rich Russillo: WHILE ALL THAT WAS GOING ON, TERRY MADE HIS WAY TO BACK TO THE CORNER! TLA IS BACK ON THE APRON NOW AND THEY MAKE THE TAG! TLA IS BACK IN THE RING AND DARCY IS TELLING DRAKE TO TURN AROUND! THE MESSIAH IS IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK RIGHT NOW AND AS HE TURNS AROUND, TLA GREETS HIM WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! TLA HOOKS DRAKE AND HE CONNECTS WITH THE ‘MEXICAN DESTROYER’!!!! TLA HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS… THE CORONA HOMBRES!!!! AS A RESULT… TLA HAS QUALIFIED FOR THE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION!
(TLA rolls off of Drake, laughing over the turn of events, as “It’s Corona Time” begins to blast across the PA system. Terry gets into the ring and helps his partner up, and the referee raises their hands in the air.)
James Peters: Holy shit! What a turn of events! Drake King went to tag in Darcy so she could pick up the win, but Darcy turned on Drake! She spit in his face and dropped down off the apron, and Terry and TLA were able to make the tag and pick up the win! TLA gets the better of Drake once again, but that’s not even half the story.
Rich Russillo: I guess Darcy had just reached her breaking point. Maybe it was Drake’s refusal to just get the win while he could, or that elbow shot from earlier, or maybe it was just a combination of oth-
Persephone: DARCY IS BACK IN THE RING AND SHE JUST STRUCK DRAKE WITH THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE! TLA AND TERRY HAVE LEFT THE RING AND DARCY IS BEATING DRAKE WITH THE BRIEFCASE! SHE CRACKS HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH IT, BUSTING HIM OPEN, AND SHE CONTINUES TO HIT HIM! BLOOD IS FLYING EVERYWHERE AND THIS BITCH HAS ABSOLUTELY SNAPPED! DARCY IS COVERED WITH THE BLOOD OF THE MESSIAH RIGHT NOW AND SHE FINALLY THROWS THE BRIEFCASE DOWN!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE ATTEMPTS TO PULL HIMSELF UP BUT THERE’S DARCY WITH ‘DDD’!!! ‘DON’T DISS DARCY’ CONNECTS AND DRAKE IS DOWN AND OUT! THE 2020 CASH IN THE VAULT HOLDER JUST SEEMINGLY SNAPPED RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES AND SHE JUST ABSOLUTELY MURDERED DRAKE KING!
(Officials have rushed down to the ramp to get Darcy, but she grabs her briefcase and slips out of the ring before anyone can touch her. The frustration of the season and everything she has been through recently finally took its toll and she lost control, and judging from the smile on Darcy’s face as she clutches the blood soaked briefcase to her chest, she has absolutely no regrets. A laugh escapes from her throat as she backs up the ramp watching everyone fuss over Drake.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Promotional ad for EAW’s next free per view event, Road to Redemption!)
(As Voltage fades back to ringside, ‘Blixky Gang Freestyle’ by 22Gz begins to play, causing a very mixed reaction from the virtual crowd. Both Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite begin making their way to the stage and then down to the ring, and both men have microphones in their hands. After moving onto the next round of the Grand Prix it’s pretty easy to tell how they’re feeling, as they completely ignore the crowd reaction and make their way into the ring. As they enter the ring, Chris Elite immediately begins to speak.)
Chris Elite: As expected, the House of Eaters wasn’t fucking with us. Justin Windgate and Jon Kelton weren’t fucking with us. We told y’all this was gonna happen you shouldn’t even be surprised. Nobody should, we do this. The two of us not even best friends or anything like that and we still washed everyone else ‘cause we’re like that. We still beat them just like we said we would now we’re about to do the same to the Jaded Hearts… Again.
Malcolm Jones: We did it before we’re and we’re gonna do it again. I’m not about to play second fiddle for some shitty promo battle between them and the Liquid Swordz. I don’t play second fiddle to nobody and that’s not changing because of those two bitches. Jaded Hearts has always been one big carry job and history already shows what happens when Kassidy tries to carry Sienna past the two of us. It doesn’t fucking work and they embarrass themselves in the process. She couldn’t do it once and she’s not about to do it this time no matter how badly she wants to face her man in the finals in some “dream match” that really only exists in her own deluded ass head. You gonna have to wait another time for it because as long as we’re in the Grand Prix and we’re your opponents y’all ain’t even making it to the finals. Dumbasses would’ve been better off not even entering the tournament and just worrying about their singles careers. Now one of them lost their National Elite Championship, the other lost their shot at the Answers World Championship, and neither of them are even making it to see the end of the Grand Prix tournament. It really wasn’t worth it huh?
Chris Elite: Wait.. Didn’t Kassidy just die or some shit at Reasonable Doubt? Fucking moron gave up the chance to give birth so she could wrestle and didn’t even win the World title. Now Sienna’s gonna have to carry Kassidy and she can’t do that. Bitch needs to worry about her own career after losing her title to Myles of all people, she not gonna be able to carry Kassidy to a win against us two. They couldn’t do shit against us when they were at their best, fuck they supposed to do against us now 🤨? This deadass not even gonna be close like you might as well just move us to the next round now. Worst part is y’all gonna have the audacity to talk like nobody believed in you like you’re an underdog or some shit all week like everybody’s not expecting y’all to face those oldhead bozos in the finals. Everyone expecting that are gonna look like some dickheads though because y’all really aren’t beating us. You weren’t fucking with us before and you definitely aren’t now. Kassidy was just burnt to death at Reasonable Doubt and no Gawd Contract or even Ryan Adams himself is gonna get her ready for a match with us. Fuck is Sienna Jade gonna do? Hm? I’ll wait, ‘cause this shit is stupid. They’re about to make fools outta themselves against us for the second time.
Malcolm Jones: Kassidy being injured is the best thing that could happen to Sienna this week. For the first time in the Jaded Hearts entire tag team run she’s the one that’s gonna be doing the heavy lifting after making a career living off of Kassidy. In the case that they somehow beat us Sienna Jade would’ve actually proved that she’s not just a useless bitch, but let’s be completely honest with ourselves. You can’t trust Sienna to be useful. You can’t trust her to be competent whether it’s her being a good partner or just actually doing her job. She’s never been like that which is exactly why she’s perfect for Impact. Just as lazy as him and just like Impact’s been doing since Ryan Adams came back Sienna’s gotta ride Kassidy’s coattails because only on rare occasions is she able to actually do shit on her own. This isn’t about to be one of those occasions though, I’m not going down to the Jaded Hearts of all people. At least they already got their last Grand Prix win to fall back on ‘cause they’re not getting that repeat.
(Chris Elite goes to speak, but Unfuckwithable by Deez Nuts suddenly hits before he could even get his sentence out. Both members of the Blicky Boyz turn their attention to the stage, and are a bit annoyed as Sienna Jade walks out to the stage. Sienna doesn’t look very amused after Malcolm and Chris spent so long talking trash about her and her partner, and she has a microphone in her hand as she walks down to the bottom of the ramp.)
Malcolm Jones: :skip: The fuck are you out here for?
Chris Elite: Yeah, I don’t remember either of us calling you out here.
Sienna Jade: Think I give a fuck? I wasn’t about to sit back and let you disrespect the two of us like that. There’s only one tag team of the decade here and that’s not the two of you. I don’t fucking care what you two think about us, we’re gonna make it to the finals of this tournament whether you like it or not. We’ve already proven just how good we are as a tag team and we’ve continued doing so every single time we shared the ring together. If anything the Jaded Hearts are a way more accomplished tag team than you two and a second Grand Prix win is going to look real nice on our resumes. We have success in the tag division whether it’s actually winning the Grand Prix before to winning the Tag Team Championships, something the Blicky Boyz just can’t relate to. I don’t care how many times you two reunited for stupid one off matches nobody cared about, Kassidy and I will always be the superior tag team and this week we’ll finally prove it by beating you guys when it actually matters most and taking you out of the Grand Prix, taking us right to the finals. I know Kassidy will be good to go, and this time you guys won’t be facing a team Chris Elite put against each other. You’ll be facing a team better than ever before and the Jaded Hearts plan to take our win back.
Malcolm Jones: :mjlol: Yeah, sure.
Sienna Jade: I vow that the Jaded Hearts will win both this match AND the entire Grand Prix. I can’t wait to spend the week hearing you two spout off the same angry fuckboy rhetorics and repetitive shit you used last time.
Chris Elite: I-
Sienna Jade: Suck my whole dick.
Chris Elite: 😐 That’s my line.
Sienna Jade: Hope you two are ready for Dynasty, bozos.
(Sienna Jade drops her microphone and turns back to the stage, making her way up to the entrance ramp.)
Chris Elite: We’ll be ready alright, you should be worried whether or not your partner’s gonna show up. Same page or not we’re repeating the same thing that happened at Fighting Spirit. We’re beating y’all asses and moving on to the finals.
Malcolm Jones: Like I already said this shit is inevitable. We ruined y’all last Jaded Dumbasses reunion and we’re about to ruin this one too. We’ll probably be ruining the one after that too, because in the end you guys won’t beat us no matter how many times you try. We’ll see y’all at Dynasty, just don’t be surprised when you miss out on the finals.
(As Malcolm finishes speaking, Sienna merely has a look of disgust on her face. ‘Blixky Gang Freestyle’ starts back up as Chris and Malcolm remain in the ring, and Sienna continues walking back up the ramp. After clearly getting the last word, the two men simply watch as Sienna Jade makes her way backstage while shaking her head. Malcolm and Chris don’t say anything else as they finally drop their own microphones, clearly having nothing else left to say. As the tag team and potential Grand Prix finalists are left inside of the ring with the mixed reception from the virtual crowd, Voltage finally fades away from ringside.)
(Commercial for Red Lobster featuring Impact. He’s attacked a few times because so many people compared him to Mr. Krabs no one can tell the difference anymore.)
(Returning to ringside in the World 1 Theatre, Bella Braxton has her microphone ready for the next match!)
Bella Braxton: The following non-tile singles match is scheduled for one fall!!
(“Diva” by Beyonce begins to play and the virtual crowd bursts into cheers for Candice, as she makes her way out.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, hailing from San Francisco, California… weighing in at 126 pounds…. “THE HOT COMMODITY” CANDICE BLAIR!!!
Persephone: I’m surprised she has the audacity to show her face after taking that fireball from Kasey Kaos last week, you would think she’d be considerate to the viewers!
James Peters: :mjpls: She looks fine, all things considered! But after their little confrontation last week, I’m sure she’ll want to get back at Kasey for what happened and even show the rest of the Specialists Chamber field that they’re in for a fight from her.
Rich Russillo: Nina and Lisa managed to get themselves involved as well, and I’m sure they’ll be watching this one closely!
(Candice enters the ring with a focus on the stage as “Cry Little Sister” by Marilyn Manson takes over while the lits dim and smoke fills the area, with the crowd exploding for the Specialists Champion arrives! Posing with the championship around her waist in typical Kasey Kaos fashion on her knees, before crawling down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent, from the Lake of Fire… weighing 140 pounds…. she is the Specialists Champion… “MISS MAYHEM” KASEY KAOS!!
James Peters: Kasey sent Candice a bit of a warning shot the other week, and she looks to make good on her ominous promises of her ideas of “fun” tonight! If the fire wasn’t enough to have Candice shaken up, Kasey will surely have something up her sleeve here in this match!
Persephone: It should’ve been Veena with the championship, but whatever.
Rich Russillo: That’s like asking for the apocalypse to happen! Kasey will surely do amazing as the Specialists Champion, and she’s in a perfect position to prove that here ahead of Road to Redemption against one of the women she’ll meet in the Chamber!
(Kasey enters the ring and unstraps the championship from around her waist, the lights coming back on as the referee comes to get the Specialists Championship to hand off to ringside.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Kasey and Candice begin by circling the ring, and it couldn’t be more clear that these two couldn’t be any more different if they tried!
Persephone: I don’t know, they’ve both obviously had half the damn makeup counter taken to them and that’s really saying something when Kasey just always has her clown face on.
Rich Russillo: And here they go to lock up- Kasey knees Candice in the gut! Candice doubles over and Kasey comes down across her back, clubbing her with her forearm! She whips Candice across the ring and into the ropes, but Candice comes back and slides right through her legs to evade whatever Kasey had planned next!
James Peters: Candice comes back up to her feet with a hold of the hands of Kasey, who tried to grab Candice while she was on the mat, and Candice flips her over! But Kasey lands on her feet and whirls around with a discus forearm smash! Kasey batters her with forearm strikes over and over again, getting Candice against the ropes, before taking her down with a snapmare following up with a kick to the back!
Rich Russillo: With Candice seated on the mat, the Specialists Champion shoves her down the rest of the way and it couldn’t be more clear that the champion is out to make a point, as she hammers down at Candice’s face! Candice didn’t appreciate Kasey licking her face the other week, or the fact she was on the receiving end of Kasey’s fireball that ruined her makeup, but Kasey attempting to disfigure Candice’s face to send a message to her here as well as their Specialists Chamber opponents is something I’m sure she won’t appreciate either!
James Peters: While she’s got more than her fair share of confidence in herself and the way she looks, Candice is someone who welcomes competition and is avid about not only stepping into the Specialists Chamber but winning as well! She nearly made it to the final two last year, and she’s sure that this is her year to win it all, but clearly, Kasey’s letting it be known that she won’t be making it easy for her or anyone else!
Persephone: If she was smart and really wanted to intimidate the rest of her Specialists Chamber opponents, she’d do something to sideline Candice right now. But instead, Kasey’s deadset on trying to punch Candice’s face apart. The referee has to step in and urge Kasey to let go of Candice’s hair as she was using it as leverage to keep Candice’ head up, and Kasey snaps at the referee for trying to intervene; he should’ve just let her disqualify herself!
Rich Russillo: Kasey brings Candice to her feet and sends Blair into a corner and goes to charge in! But Candice knocks her back with a back elbow- CANDICE RUSHES OUT THE CORNER AND CONNECTS WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! THE CHAMPION IS TAKEN RIGHT OFF HER FEET BUT SHE’S GETTING UP IMMEDIATELY AFTER, TURNING RIGHT INTO A CANDICE WHO COMES HITTING OFF THE ROPES WITH THAT HANDSPRING STUNNER!
James Peters: THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION REFUSES TO STAY DOWN, HOWEVER, AND CANDICE STRIKES WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK THAT KNOCKS HER BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! CANDICE BLAIR HAS THE CROWD AUDIBLY BEHIND HER AS SHE CHARGES INTO THE CORNER AND LEAPS INTO KASEY WITH A DOUBLE KNEE STRIKE! CANDICE TAKES HER OUT THE CORNER WITH SWIFT SUPLEX, SENDING KASEY COLLIDING WITH THE MAT BEFORE TURNING OVER FOR A MULTITIDE OF MOUNTED STRIKES!!
Rich Russillo: KASEY KICKS HER AWAY BUT AS THEY GET TO THEIR FEET, CANDICE MANGES TO STOP HER WITH A BACK KICK BEFORE GRABBING HER HAIR AND TAKING HER OVER TO SLAM HER HEAD OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! CANDICE COMPLETELY IGNORES THE OFFICIAL AS SHE SMASHES HER HEAD OFF THE BUCKLE AGAIN BEFORE SHE SNAPMARES HER OUT THE CORNER AND NEARLY TAKES THE CHAMPION’S HEAD OFF WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK! KASEY IS DOWN AND CANDICE MAKES THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: Kaos kicks out but there’s no surprise there, not even for Candice! But you have to assume that she’s got it across just now that she isn’t someone that people are going to want to underestimate in the Chamber. She’s taken it to the champion and seems to have her right where she wants her; if she can stay on Kasey and everyone else in the Chamber like this, she just might win it!
Persephone: It’s just a shame she can’t end it, at least for the sake of my own sanity anyway; I was hoping that was the end of it just now. But besides that, I don’t trust this bitch at all to be able to win a Chamber match, let alone any other big opportunities. I mean, just how many times have we seen her in a position to win and actually back up everything she was saying in a match of hers that we unfortunately found ourselves being forced to sit through, only for her to lose in the end?
James Peters: A surprisingly correct and somewhat snide observation from our broadcast colleague just now about Candice-
Persephone: :skip: “Surprisingly”?! You say that like I’ve ever been wrong!
James Peters: -but if we were to listen to Candice, she’ll be the biggest threat in the match. And she looks to continue to aim to be a threat against the champion’s chances of winning this bout, as she brings Kasey to stand and chops her across the chest, followed by a forearm club!
Rich Russillo: Candice keeps that combination going all the way to the ropes, backing Kasey against them- KASEY KICKS HER IN THE GUT AND SMACKS HER ACROSS THE FACE! KASEY NOW RESPONDING WITH THE SAME SEQUENCES OF STRIKES, AND I CAN’T IMAGINE KASEY IS SOMEONE I’D WANT TO TRADE BLOWS WITH! KASEY PUTTING EVERYTHING BEHIND THOSE HITS AND A SUDDEN EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TAKES CANDICE OFF HER FEET!
James Peters: CANDICE QUICKLY TRIES TO GET UP, KNOWING JUST HOW MUCH OF A DANGER KASEY COULD BE IF SHE LEAVES HERSELF VULNERABLE, AND TURNS RIGHT INTO A SICKENING HEADBUTT FROM THE CHAMP! CANDICE IS STUNNED AS KASEY KICKS HER IN THE STOMACH AND TAKES HER TO THE MAT WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! KASEY KEEPS THE HOLD THOUGH AND TURNS THEM OVER BACK ONTO THEIR FEET, AND SHE FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH ANOTHER! KASEY LOOKING FOR A THIRD NOW, THIS TIME RELEASING HER CHAMBER CHALLENGER AND CANDICE CRASHES TO THE MAT!
Rich Russillo: CANDICE GOES TO THE ROPES TO PULL HERSELF UP, HER HAND PRESSED TO HER BACK, AND KASEY COMES UP FROM BEHIND TO TAKE CANDICE TO THE MAT WITH A RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP! THE BACK OF CANDICE’S HEAD SMACKS THE CANVAS AND KASEY FLOATS OVER INTO THE COVER!
James Peters: Candice kicks out, but just like that, Kasey is back in control of things! Kasey has proven herself to be surprising, often unpredictable, and even perhaps eccentric and erratic-
Persephone: Don’t forget creepy, a total psycho, completely weird, ugly, and literally so fucking rude for denying Veena the victory in their Specialists Championship match at Wicked Games when I was totally hoping Veena would win – I could really keep going, honestly!
Rich Russillo: I’m pretty sure you were the only one rooting for a Veena Adams victory that night :mjlol:
James Peters: Anyways! The point I was trying to make, is that Kasey has the ability to show that she truly is a force to be reckoned with, even more so with the spotlight on her that the Specialists Championship brings, and a match like the Specialists Chamber will undoubtedly showcase those skills! But even now, she’s showing that’s no reason for anyone to ever think she’s incapable or to count her out.
Persephone: I wish she would get counted out, as in getting the fuck out the ring! But no, she insists on dragging Candice up and then flinging her to the mat by her ratty extensions, and she’s doing it again!
Rich Russillo: She might have Candice down on her knees but that isn’t stopping her from fighting back, trying to break that hold on her hair that not even the referee could convince the champion to let go of! Candice punches at her gut, fighting her way up to a vertical base and now aiming for the face!
James Peters: But Kasey shoves her back into the ropes- CANDICE SPRINGS OFF OF THEM LOOKING FOR A SLINGBLADE BUT KASEY CATCHES HER AND HOLDS ON, SPINNING THEM AROUND AND SLAMMING CANDICE TO THE MAT! KASEY IMMEDIATELY TAKING HER UP AND TAKING HER TOWARD THE CORNER WITH A BUTTERFLY SUPLEX, CANDICE CRASHING TO THE MAT WITH AN AUDIBLE THUD!
Rich Russillo: KASEY HITS A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF CANDICE’S HEAD AS SHE WAS TRYING TO GET UP, SENDING HER FACE-FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! THE REIGNING CHAMPION DELIVERS A MULTITUDE OF STOMPS WITH THE REFEREE WARNING HER OF THE DISQUALIFICATION, BUT KASEY’S DESIRE TO DISH OUT PUNISHMENT WON’T BE HALTED!
James Peters: KASEY HAS HER FOOT PRESSED TO CANDICE’S THROAT AS SHE’S STUCK DOWN IN THE CORNER, TRULY NOT WANTING TO LET HER BREATHE AND THE REFEREE FINALLY STARTS A COUNT! SHE HOLDS IT FOR NEARLY THE ENTIRE FIVE COUNT AND KASEY BACKS AWAY, A SMIRK ON HER FACE AS SHE APPEARS SATISFIED WITH MAKING CANDICE SUFFER!
Persephone: They’re both making me suffer the longer this goes on, but it’s not like anyone bothered to check in and ask me for my thoughts on the bullshit! Kasey ends up taking a kick to the face for trying to get her hands on Candice, who tries to fight out the corner and get back on the offensive, but Kasey ends up catching her and lifting her off her feet to hang her upside down in the corner!
Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos alternates between unforgiving knee strikes and kicks to Candice Blair as she’s stuck in this defenseless position, and Kasey is someone who’s absolutely going to take every advantage of this! Kasey with a toe-kick to the stomach and Candice can only try to cover up- BUT KASEY JUST TAKES HER BY HER HAIR AND SLAMS HER DOWN SO THAT HER HEAD COLLIDES WITH THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE!
James Peters: CANDICE APPEARS TO BE OUT OF IT AS SHE’S STUCK DANGLING IN THAT TREE OF WOE, AND THE REFEREE HAS TO FORCE KASEY BACK! HE TRIES TO CHECK IN ON CANDICE BUT SHE HASN’T EVEN TRIED TO MOVE AFTER THAT; SHE COULD BE OUT- THE REFEREE DIVES OUT THE WAY AS, JUST IN TIME, HE SPOTS KASEY RUNNING THEIR WAY FOR A DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: BUT CANDICE LIFTS HERSELF UP AND KASEY CRASHES INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! CANDICE GRABBED THE TOP ROPE AND GOT HERSELF OUT THE WAY, AVOIDING WHAT COULD’VE STARTED THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR HER! Candice now trying to turn herself around on the top turnbuckle, and Kasey’s already getting to her feet! Kasey climbing up the turnbuckles as Candice continues to try to position herself Kasey clubs her with a forearm but Candice fires back as she’s on the outside, and Kasey returns it as she comes up onto the middle turnbuckle!
James Peters: Candice tries to knock her to the mat with two consecutive shots but the champion hangs on! Candice reels back for a third- BUT KASEY SHOVES HER OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND CANDICE TAKES A NASTY FALL TO THE FLOOR HERE ON THE OUTSIDE! EVEN THE REFEREE SHOWS SOME CONCERN AS THERE WAS NOTHING CANDICE COULD DO TO SOFTEN THE COLLISION! BUT UP ON THE TURNBUCKLE, KASEY KAOS POSITIONS HERSELF AND CANDICE STRUGGLES TO THE APRON, SLOWLY PULLING HERSELF UP!
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS DIVES OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY, TAKING OUT CANDICE BLAIR ONCE AGAIN! THE VIRTUAL CROWD IS LIVING FOR KASEY’S TOTAL ABANDON FOR HER OWN SAFETY WHEN IT COMES TO PUTTING CANDICE DOWN! KASEY IS THE FIRST OF THE TWO WOMEN TO MOVE, HAULING CANDICE UP AND ROLLING HER INTO THE RING! CANDICE SITTING HERSELF UP- “CHERRY BOMB”!!! THE SHINING WIZARD FROM KASEY CONNECTS AND CANDICE IS DOWN AND OUT! KASEY WITH THE COVER!!!
Persephone: Candice kicks out and I’m truly just stuck wishing she hadn’t, because these boring bitches are about to put me to sleep! Veena would’ve had this won by now; she destroyed Candice at Pain for Pride this year and really, Kasey should’ve taken notes from the G.O.A.T. women’s wrestler! But here we are with this unnecessarily prolonged match and the smile on Kasey’s face tells me she doesn’t mind that even though I certainly do, because hurting Candice Blair is clearly a priority; save it for the Chamber, bitch!
James Peters: I’m not sure if it’s more about hurting Candice, as much as it is about getting it across that even without the advantages that the Chamber provides, that she’s still capable of making her opponents’ time in the with her a living Hell! She stomps down on Candice, with Candice trying to turn away only to take a kick to the ribs and that resounding shot could be heard all throughout the World 1 Theatre! Now, Kasey brings her to kneel with a handful of hair, only to slam her back down to the mat!
Rich Russillo: Candice’s face hits off the canvas and Kasey does it again! Now, with a boot on the back of her neck, she raises Candice up again and drives her down face-first with her foot! Candice turns over covering her nose only for Kasey to bring her to her feet, looking for a german suplex! Candice crashes to the mat on her neck and upper back, but Kasey has yet to let go! Kasey now with a release german suplex on a defenseless Candice, and Candice ends up flopping over upon hitting the mat, her hand going to her face and looks to her hand to find there’s blood coming from her nose!
James Peters: No doubt the result of the stomp she took from Kasey moments ago, and Kasey couldn’t look more pleased! The Specialists Champion hurries over and forcefully yanks Candice up for a scoop slam- Candice slips out and behind her, shoving Kasey forward into the corner! Candice runs at her only for Kasey to sidestep and the champion looks for a bicycle kick, but Candice ducks down out the way and Kasey strikes the turnbuckle! Kaos hobbles out the corner and tries to get her hands on Candice but Candice drops down with a sitout jawbreaker!
Rich Russillo: Kasey is stunned and barely staying on her feet- AND CANDICE TAKES HER RIGHT OFF OF THEM WITH A SPEAR! CANDICE TACKLES HER TO THE MAT AND STARTS UNLOADING A SERIES OF RIGHT HANDS ON KASEY! CANDICE HOLDS NOTHING BACK, RELENTLESS WITH HOW SHE’S GOING AFTER KASEY! I’D IMAGINE LAST WEEK’S FIREBALL HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS JUST AS MUCH AS SHE STAYS ON THE CHAMPION!
Persephone: Candice goes to bring her up to her feet and tries to whip her across the ring but Kasey holds onto the ropes, blocking the attempt. Candice tries again but Kasey refuses to budge and only lets go when she tries to punch at Candice’s bloody nose, but Candice ducks and takes her down with a split-legged arm drag! Kasey rolls over and up to her feet, taking a side kick to the stomach to double her over and then a shoot kick to the jaw that brings her to stand upright!
Rich Russillo: CANDICE JUMPS INTO THE AIR AND GRABS KASEY BEFORE COMING DOWN WITH A SINGLE KNEE FACEBREAKER! BUT SOMEHOW KASEY MANAGES TO STAY ON HER FEET! CANDICE DOESN’T LOOK PUT OFF THOUGH, AS SHE GRABS A HOLD OF THE UNSTEADY KASEY AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A BRAINBUSTER! SHE FINALLY HAS KASEY DOWN AND CANDICE QUICKLY TAKES ADVANTAGE, STOMPING DOWN ON KASEY AS SHE WALKS ACROSS HER BEFORE COMING FLIPPING BACK WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT INTO A DOUBLE KNEE DROP TO THE STOMACH, CANDICE QUICKLY GRABBING THE LEG FOR THE PIN!!!
James Peters: Kasey Kaos kicks out! But Candice isn’t even giving it a second thought as she takes Kasey and aims to whip her into the corner! But Kasey counters by holding on and turning it right around into a brutal kick to the stomach! Kaos grabs Candice and pulls her in as she looks to take off into a bulldog but Candice shoves her away just in time, right into the corner! Kasey uses the ropes to lift herself up and kick Candice back, giving her two boots to the face to send her to the mat before getting onto the top turnbuckle!
Rich Russillo: Candice rising to her feet! “FALL FROM PARADISE” FROM KASEY KAOS!! BUT THE DIVING HURRICANRANA MISSES AS CANDICE DIVES OUT THE WAY AND KASEY CRASHES TO THE MAT!! KASEY ROLLS OVER THE CANVAS CLUTCHING AT HER BACK AND CANDICE IS LEANED AGAINST THE ROPES, KNOWING THAT SHE AVOIDED DISASTER! KASEY PUSHES HERSELF UP TO HER KNEES- RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE FROM CANDICE BLAIR!!! SHE CLOCKS KASEY RIGHT ON THE SIDE OF HER HEAD AND CANDICE HURRIES INTO THE COVER!!!
Persephone: :mjlol: The frustrated look on Candice’s face right now is priceless, because she knows that she just took one of her best shots on Kasey and she won’t stay down! But what else did she expect? I’m not one to advocate for these whores or anyone who isn’t Rex, really, but this is only going for her in the way just about everything else has; we’re not surprised!
James Peters: But with Kasey still down, Candice sees her chance as she pulls her up! But Candice is going to have to do something about Kaos’ resilience as she tries to fight out! Candice lunging into her forearm strikes that she delivers to Kasey and she delivers a knee lift to Kaos’ gut to put her to a stop, and now Candice puts Kasey’s head between her legs!! Candice arrogantly makes the championship motion around her waist- AND NOW THE “CANDY DESTROYER”!!!
Rich Russillo: CANDICE GOES OVER FOR THE CANADIAN DESTROYER AND- KASEY HAS IT SCOUTED AND PUSHES HER OFF AND CANDICE GETS FLIPPED OVER BUT SHE LANDS ON HER FEET!!! SHE TOOK TOO LONG TO CAPITALIZE AND KASEY WAS ABLE TO COUNTER! “KAOS REIGNS”!!! THE TAZMISSION SUBMISSION GETS LOCKED IN AS KASEY SPUN AROUND AND LOCKED IT IN!! CANDICE SHOUTS AS SHE GETS TAKEN TO THE MAT AND KASEY IS DOING WHAT SHE CAN TO KEEP CANDICE FROM BREAKING FREE!!!
James Peters: CANDICE STRUGGLES TO GET ANYWHERE AND SHE’S FRANTICALLY TRYING TO ESCAPE!! THE LONGER SHE STAYS IN THIS CERTAINLY WON’T DO HER ANY GOOD!! THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN BESIDE THEM AND GOES TO CANDICE BUT SHE ISN’T QUITTING! CANDICE REACHES FOR THE ROPES AS SHE TURNS THEM BOTH OVER ON THEIR SIDES, CANDICE HAVING TO GET A BIT FURTHER BUT-
Persephone: CANDICE WON’T MAKE IT AS SHE MISSES THE BOTTOM ROPE!! IT’S OVER :blessed:!!!
James Peters: NO IT’S NOT! A FINAL SURGE AND STRETCH FROM CANDICE BRINGS CANDICE’S LEG ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE!! CANDICE DOES HER BEST TO HOOK HER LEG AROUND IT AND THE REFEREE HAS TO CALL FOR KASEY TO GET OFF OF HER!!
Rich Russillo: KASEY DOESN’T LOOK PLEASED AT ALL AS SHE STARTS A SERIES OF STOMPS DOWN ONTO CANDICE, WHO HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO GET BACK UP YET!! THE REFEREE HURRIES BETWEEN THEM AND BACKS KASEY AWAY, ARGUING WITH HER ABOUT RISKING DISQUALIFICATION! KASEY MERELY SHOVES PAST HIM AND GETS THROWN OUT OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE, CANDICE SENDING HER TO CRASH TO THE FLOOR!! KASEY SLOWLY RISING UP ON THE OUTSIDE AND CANDICE STEPS OUT ONTO THE APRON, A FEW MOMENTS OF ANTICIPATING KASEY FOLLOW BEFORE SHE LAUNCHES HERSELF OFF WITH A METEORA!!! CANDICE TAKES DOWN THE CHAMPION RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF US!!!
Persephone: I already know she isn’t about to let Kasey get counted out so I won’t even bother there, but she grabs her up and sends her into the edge of the apron, obviously wanting to do some more damage before she gets her inside! Candice rams her into the apron again before rolling into the ring, where hopefully one of them can end this. Kasey already tries to get up onto her knees after Candice just rolls into the ring, and Candice is quick to try to keep her down. Kasey’s unfortunately fighting back though and the both of them end up fighting on their feet, until Kasey blasts Candice in the face with a right hand- Candice ducks under it and grabs her by her neck for a chokehold STO and the force behind it takes them both down!
James Peters: Candice might have Kasey down but she seems to know that won’t be enough, as she rolls out to the apron! Candice slowly brings herself to stand with the help of the ropes and holds it all the way to the turnbuckles, slow to pull herself up to them! And she can’t help but shake her head in frustration as she spots Kasey already down on the mat, starting to move; having to keep Kasey down longer than a few moments at times has no doubt been a struggle but that’s the kind of battle Kasey will bring!
Rich Russillo: Candice is determined to keep going up though and won’t resign to anything else; she knows this has to be the way! Candice going to the top turnbuckle now and Kasey is up to her knees, and she spots Candice pulling herself over to try to get up still- BUT KASEY SURGES FORWARD AND KNOCKS ONE OF CANDICE’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER! CANDICE CRASHES ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE INTO A SEATED POSITION!!!
James Peters: KAOS YANKS CANDICE OFF THE BUCKLE AND THE BACK OF HER HEAD STRIKES IT ON THE WAY DOWN!! KASEY LUNGING FORWARD FOR A FOREARM STRIKE BUT CANDICE PUTS HER ARM UP TO BLOCK IT AND KICKS KASEY AWAY, CLUTCHING AT THE BACK OF HER HEAD IN EVIDENT PAIN JUST BEFORE KASEY RUSHES AT HER!!
Rich Russillo: KASEY GOES FOR A SHOULDER THRUST IN THE CORNER BUT CANDICE LIFTS HERSELF UP AND ROLLS ACROSS KASEY’S BACK, DOWN INTO A SCHOOLBOY PIN!!! CANDICE GETTING HER WITH THE ROLL-UP OUT THE CORNER AND SHE HOLDS HER FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Diva” by Beyonce beings to play and Candice shoots up off the mat, a smile on her face as she looks to the referee to raise her hand!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, CAAAANDIIIICE BLAAAIIIIR!!!
James Peters: A strong showing from both women tonight, who’ll meet again at Road To Redemption, but it’s Candice Blair who walks away with the win!
Rich Russillo: Kasey was in control and looked like she just might’ve been the winner tonight, but Candice held on and fought through so much! There’s nothing to take away from the performances of either of them, but could you imagine if they’re the final two in the Chamber and this is what happens?! Candice clearly knows it would mean that she’d be the new-
James Peters: KASEY KAOS SPEARS CANDICE TO THE MAT!!! KASEY TRIES FIRING DOWN ON CANDICE BUT CANDICE FIGHTS BACK AGAINST IT, TRYING TO KNOCK HER AWAY!!! BUT NOTHING WILL DETER KASEY AS SHE TRIES TO FIGHT PAST CANDICE’S RETURNING PUNCHES!!!
Rich Russillo: THE TWO OF THEM APPEAR TO BE GETTING NOWHERE THOUGH AS NEITHER OF THEM CAN GET CONTROL OF THE SITUATION!! KASEY TRYING TO CLAW HER TO CANDICE’S FACE BUT CANDICE IS BLOCKING HER HANDS AND TRYING TO PUSH KASEY OFF OF HER!
Persephone: Finally, Candice kicks her in the face and Kasey gets knocked away, and Candice rolls out under the bottom rope! Candice falls to the ground but she’s back up on her feet, wiping away at the blood on her face as she backs up the ramp and waves at Kasey with a smile; Kasey is absolutely pissed right now :mjlol:!!!
(Candice makes it to the stage and the grin on her face makes it no secret that she’s enjoying this victory already, whereas inside the ring, Kasey is snarling at the woman who just defeated her. Kaos doesn’t even acknowledge the referee trying to give her the Specialists Championship, instead she has her sights solely focused on Candice, who points to the championship belt and it couldn’t be made any more clear that she’s got even stronger intentions of winning it now. But as she disappears to the back, the camera focuses on Kasey Kaos in the ring, still unmoved from the ropes.)
James Peters: We know what this will do for Candice’s confidence but who knows what it’ll mean for Kasey, as there’s fury clearly on her face after the surprise victory by Candice, but it surely has to be nothing compared to the fury she’ll want to bring to her challengers come Road to Redemption!
(The referee cautiously sets the Specialists Championship down beside her and exits from the ring, meanwhile, Kasey continues to visibly seethe with her grip tightening on the rope. On that shot of Kasey, the scene fades out.)
(Commercial featuring Chris Elite spreading awareness on copyright laws and infringement.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside, and Bella Braxton stands in the center of the ring,)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is your main event match of the evening..
Virtual Crowd: YEAH!!!!!!
Bella Braxton: And it’s scheduled for ONE FALL!!…
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(‘Jet Set Run’ by Yuki Hayashi blares through the P.A. system and the virtual audience gives a warm welcome to Harper Lee who enters onto the stage alone. The Realm member proudly wears her Unified Tag Team gold around her waist.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…She resides in Charlotte, North Carolina…She weighs in at ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN POUNDS…..REPRESENTING THE REALM…She’s one half of THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…’THE INVINCIBLE’…HARPER!!!! LEE!!!
(Harper has a happy-winning smile on her face as she makes her way down the ramp, very confident of her chances tonight to pull off the upset.)
James Peters: This young lady just got done with a hell of a match last week on Dynasty against the current New Breed Champion, Andre Walker. She said that he brought the challenge she wanted, and other than not coming up with the victory against one of the really good rising stars we have in this entire company today she was remarkably upbeat coming into this week. This was another challenge that she’s looking forward to, and I’m very interested to see how she stacks up tonight against the current EAW Champion, SOSA Henderson.
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson has been on a roll, but I too will be more than intrigued to see what this young lady can bring to the table against one of the premier champions we have in all of EAW. But Harper Lee is a champion in this company too, and it’s taken her some time to finally start walking and talking like a champion. She’s definitely confident and knows she’s got nothing to lose going into a match like this just like the week before. She’s still growing as an elitist, but the future is just waiting for this young lady to break out in the next year or two. The sky’s the limit for her in my opinion.
Persephone: I’ve personally seen enough of this little virgin Mary over the last month or so enough to make me sick! She’s into anime! A grown adult into cartoons that wants to be taken seriously as a professional wrestler? I can’t make sense of it for the life of me.
(Harper is shown posing on the turnbuckle while taunting as she jumps down and waits for her opponent. ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef now plays. The virtual crowd makes their response be heard, booing the current EAW Champion which has become something of a common theme, as SOSA makes his way to the stage. We see Persephone plugging her ears to block out the sound of the EAW Champion’s music, clearly disgusted that she has to call another of his matches like she did the week before. SOSA has the EAW Championship around his waist and lends a smirk at his opponent as he calmly makes his way down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: And now introducing her opponent… He hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania…. He weighs in at ONE HUNDRED NINETY ONE POUNDS…. HE IS ‘BULLETPROOF’… THE EAW CHAMPION….SOSA!!!! HENDERSON!!!!!
James Peters: Last week the EAW Champion went to war with ‘The Red Queen’ Ms. Extreme, and Rich last week both were lucky to walk away from the scene largely unscathed.
Rich Russillo: That was a pretty reckless affair at the end, and this man SOSA Henderson shouldn’t expect anything less as long as he’s wearing the top belt of our brand. He’s the standard right now, so with Road To Redemption getting ever closer you know business is going to pick up. Tonight TLA qualified for the Extreme Elimination Chamber to join Terry Chambers and SOSA. You gotta wonder who the three remaining participants will be, but first he’s gotta get through tonight.
Persephone: Blah! Blah! Blah! Hate this music! Stop calling that man the standard of anything. He’s not a real champion, he’s just a pathetic thug that’s going watch karma catch up to him sooner rather than later for being weasling thief. That’s the only reason he has that belt now, and I can’t wait for the time to come when he finally loses it! Ugh!
(SOSA Henderson is shown again leaning into the ropes talking while holding the EAW Championship up, still receiving a negative reaction from the crowd before settling into his neutral corner and giving up his EAW Championship to the referee who then hands it to the crew member at ringside.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: SOSA Henderson. Harper Lee. This is our main event, folks! Both competitors tie up and immediately SOSA shows off his strength advantage by shoving Harper Lee down to the canvas and she tumbles hard into the ropes! SOSA is now showboating a bit, and Harper Lee takes exception to being shoved down. She gets back to her feet, not too impressed at all that SOSA is showboating at her expense. Both competitors circle around the ring once and now are looking to tie up again, uh…no, SOSA draws back and this can’t make Harper too happy. SOSA Henderson, the EAW Champion, is not giving Harper the type of respect she would expect more especially given SOSA’s position in the pecking order.
(The shot shows SOSA taunting Harper’s height disadvantage, throwing mocking fists at the air in her direction. SOSA looks for a response from the virtual crowd, but as he does Harper Lee walks right up still unimpressed.)
Rich Russillo: She certainly is ready to knock the snot out of him, Harper goes to slap the EAW Champion but unexpectedly SOSA alertly catches the hand of Harper and twists it, and goes under! Back heel kick by the champion right to the jaw of Harper Lee knocking her back down to the canvas! SOSA continues to taunt Harper as she sits up holding her jaw, obviously feeling the effects of that direct kick! SOSA steps back into the corner as Harper is looking to recover and get back to her feet. But before she can, SOSA Henderson just stomped on the exposed hand of Harper Lee and won’t let up and Harper is screaming out in pain, but SOSA Henderson is enjoying this! He’s toying with one half of the current Unified Tag Team Champions, and now he brings down a hard and vicious fist to the head of Harper Lee and she collapses down to the canvas crawling away under a great deal of pain and distress, and then there’s the champion.
Persephone: This guy makes me wanna puke. And no it’s got nothing to do with what he’s doing to that little blonde half-pint in the ring, because she’s dumb to sign her life away to get pummeled every week. But SOSA Henderson, this guy is the epitome of everything that reeks of major suckiness in this place! He’s absolutely despicable! Ugh!
James Peters: SOSA Henderson now grabs up Harper Lee by her hair with force! Harper tries to fight her way out immediately but SOSA just yanked back on Harper’s hair and her head just slammed against the canvas hard! SOSA now begins stomping on the midsection of the Harper Lee, and Harper has yet to really get going in this contest. This again, folks, is the main event! Rich, you get the feeling that we’re in for a lot of the same that we were last week when SOSA Henderson showed a real aggressiveness in his match with Ms. Extreme! Now SOSA grabs Harper and whips her to the corner and follows up with a back elbow but Harper gets him to miss!
Rich Russillo: Now it’s SOSA Henderson that’s at the mercy of Harper Lee! Hurricanrana by Harper Lee brings the champion down finally! SOSA Henderson hurries back to his feet but Harper Lee is already on the attack again! Harper bounces off the ropes and it’s Harper Lee with a running dropkick that sends SOSA Henderson falling back! SOSA comes back with a clothesline attempt but misses as the quick of foot Harper avoids the contact and now sends a kick to the midsection of the EAW Champion and brings him in! SHE HAS HIM! SNAP DDT BURIES THE HEAD OF BULLETPROOF SOSA HENDERSON INTO THE CANVAS!! THE COVER BY HARPER LEE!
James Peters: The champ kicks out, putting to rest the small spurt of offense from Harper Lee. SOSA whips Harper to the ropes but she cleverly hangs on to the ropes and now SOSA charges toward Harper, and a knee by Harper followed by a jumping back elbow from Harper Lee! Harper reverse somersault rolls back to her feet. SOSA is stumbling back to his, and it’s Harper from behind with the running bulldog! Another hook of the leg and cover by Harper on the EAW Champion!
Persephone: Sooooo borrrrrring! Can we please just end this one already!
Rich Russillo: Now Harper grabs SOSA Henderson up into a headlock and cinches it in but SOSA is quick to respond by shoving Harper Lee to the ropes but again Harper Lee hangs on and hops over the top rope onto the apron! Here comes SOSA Henderson to take a swipe at Harper but the quickness of Harper, she’s been using it to evade the attack of the champion in the last few minutes! Slingshot spear catches SOSA off guard. Now Harper climbs up the nearby turnbuckle and leaps off! Diving crossbody-No. NO! HE DIDN’T GO DOWN! SOSA Henderson has Harper in his clutches, but what’s he going to do?
James Peters: OH MY GOD! SOSA HENDERSON JUST TOSSED HARPER LEE OVER HIS SHOULDERS WHERE HER BODY HITS THE GROUND HARD ON THE OUTSIDE! I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT!
Rich Russillo: Is she dead? She’s not moving. Meanwhile in the ring SOSA Henderson is talking to himself, perhaps not believing that someone like the resilient Harper Lee had been able to take it to him like that.
James Peters: Indeed. You may be right, Rich. SOSA Henderson is exactly where he wants to be and each week he’s been coming out for months showing why he’s in the position he’s in as the EAW Champion. SOSA now slides out to the floor where Harper Lee has started to move. She’s still gotta be feeling the effects from SOSA tossing her over his head where she hit the floor just a moment ago. Now SOSA picks the near prone and limp body of Harper Lee off ground and now whips her with such ferocity right into the steel steps where she tumbles hard over the steps to the other side!
Rich Russillo: Harper yells out in pain as she holds her knee and the referee, as one would expect, is letting things go a bit not wanting to have this main event ended on a count out.
Persephone: Sad. I would. These two aren’t worthy of the main event, if you ever asked for my opinion. If we ever see these two in the same match as a main event I swear I’ll quit. I will too.
James Peters: Perhaps Captain Charisma is listening and may hold you to that, Seph. The referee is telling SOSA to bring it back into the ring and SOSA hardly puts up much of an argument with that as rolls to banged up and battered body of Harper Lee back into the ring.
Rich Russillo: Now SOSA begins to showboat again at the expense of Harper Lee, he’s definitely not shying away from the spotlight is he, James?
James Peters: Well, when you’re as talented as this man is and has shown he can be at different points of his career, I guess you can afford to be. But Harper Lee, she’s a champion too. She’s fought right throughout her career which is almost extended to a year since she debuted in this company. She’s not going to go away so easily, she’s still in this until she’s not.
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson has the advantage right now though, and that’s what counts. He’s not going to let Harper Lee run wild on him, he’s been in battles with better, more fierce opponents, and certainly bigger ones than Harper Lee. He’s been on a roll since his return and I just don’t think he’s going to allow someone like Harper to take advantage when he’s rolling like this. He’s been just about unstoppable in recent months.
James Peters: That he has, and we’ll see how this one shakes out to find out if he is able to add this one in with the rest of the success he’s been having. He’s got Harper Lee up and now back down with a snapmare followed by a single leg drop right over the chest of Harper, and now the cover by SOSA! Could this be it?
Rich Russillo: And Harper does kick out, not that SOSA had the best cover in the world there. He didn’t even hook the leg.
James Peters: He most certainly didn’t, and that’s something that could cost him later if he isn’t careful. He needs to keep the pressure on Harper by continuing to mount the offensive taking advantage of his size that he has by comparison to Harper Lee, keeping her grounded would be best wouldn’t you say so, Rich?
Persephone: It’s Persephone, and yes I most certainly would say a one-sided match wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit. These two are pure trash, do you hear me? T.R.A.S.H.
James Peters: SOSA Henderson has Harper Lee back to her feet and now he’s looking for a vertical suplex and he has her up, and back down. But Harper! She lands on her feet! SOSA is taken a bit by surprise! SOSA going for a wild lariat that misses! AND NOW A ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY HARPER LEE MISSES! SOSA HAS HARPER FROM BEHIND! BACK SUPLEX BY SOSA RIGHT INTO A PINNING COMBINATION!
Rich Russillo: And Harper is still alive, she kicks out! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET NOW! THEY BOTH HAVE THE SAME IDEA AS THEY CHARGE TOWARD EACH OTHER! WHO’S GOING TO REACT FIRST FOR AN ATTACK! IT’S HARPER LEE WITH A BICYCLE KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION OF THE CHAMPION! HE’S BEEN TAKEN BY SURPRISE WITH THAT ONE! NOW ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE KICK! THIS ONE CONNECTS AND DOWN GOES SOSA HENDERSON! HARPER BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND COMING BACK A STEP UP ENZIGIRI BY HARPER! SOSA IS STAGGERING ON HIS FEET! SHE’S QUICKENED THE PACE AND AS SUSPECTED WHEN SHE’S ABLE TO SPEED THINGS UP HER OPPONENT IS IN TROUBLE! SNAPMARE BY HARPER LEE! RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD BY HARPER LEE!
James Peters: AND THE VIRTUAL CROWD IS NOW HYPED! IT’S PRETTY SAFE TO SAY THEY’RE INTO THIS ONE NOW! HARPER HAS SOSA BACK UP ON HIS FEET! SHE SENDS SOSA TO THE ROPES AND A BICYCLE KICK BY HARPER LEE SENDS THE EAW CHAMPION CRUMBLING TO THE CANVAS! SHE HAS HIM ON THE ROPES! SOSA IS TRYING TO QUICKLY RECOVER BUT THIS TIME HE’S A LITTLE SLOWER AT GETTING BACK TO THAT VERTICAL BASE WHERE HE WOULD HAVE THE ADVANTAGE! TRAMPOLINE!!! THE STEP UP DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE HEAD OF SOSA HENDERSON DRILLING HIM INTO THE CANVAS! THE COVER BY HARPER LEE! COULD SHE HAVE THE CHAMPION DOWN! WHAT AN UPSET THIS WOULD BE!
Rich Russillo: And the champion shoots a shoulder off the canvas! Harper sits up, she’s not discouraged. Harper gets back to her feet and she pulls the champion in, she’s going for a piledriver on SOSA Henderson! Can she pull it off? Piledriver connects by Harper Lee and the champion is down. Harper Lee steps out to the apron and hurries up to the top turnbuckle. She’s taking a big chance! Here she goes, SUPPLY DROP! THE DIVING SENTON!
James Peters: NO! THE CHAMPION ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND HARPER LEE LANDS AWKWARDLY! SOSA HENDERSON STILL SUFFERING FROM THE EFFECTS OF THAT PILEDRIVER DELIVERED A MOMENT AGO! HARPER IS HOLDING HER BACK! SHE’S UP BUT SHE TURNS RIGHT INTO THE SPEAR BY SOSA HENDERSON! SOSA COVERS AND HOOKS THE LEG! THIS COULD BE IT RIGHT HERE!
Rich Russillo: NO!!! AND NOW HARPER LEE! THE RESILIENT HARPER LEE! ONE HALF OF THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, HARPER LEE NOW SHOOTS A SHOULDER OFF THE CANVAS BEFORE THREE! HOW DID SHE DO IT!!??
James Peters: SHE’ S NOT A CHAMPION FOR NOTHING, RICH! BUT IT’S SOSA HENDERSON THAT’S A LITTLE UNNERVED ABOUT THAT OUTCOME! I’M SURE HE EXPECTED IT TO BE OVER AFTER SPEARING HARPER LEE NEARLY OUT OF HER BOOTS! NOW IT’S SOSA THAT’S BACK TO HIS FEET FIRST AND BRINGS HARPER LEE BACK UP AND SENDS HER TO THE CORNER! HE GOES TO TAKE A SWING AT HARPER BUT HARPER IS ABLE TO AVOID THE CONTACT THIS TIME AND NOW IT’S HARPER THAT FINDS THE ADVANTAGE AND SOSA THAT’S AT HER MERCY! DRAGON FIST KNOCKS SOSA SILLY! SOSA PUSHES HARPER AWAY AND THEN TRIES TO CLIMB UP TO THE TOP BUT HERE COMES HARPER! SHE’S NOT THROUGH YET! SHE CLIMBS UP WITH SOSA HENDERSON AND BEGINS SENDING SHOTS TO THE MIDSECTION! SOSA IS SITTING ON THE TOP ROPE AND HARPER IS STANDING ON THE SECOND ROPE! WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN HERE??
Persephone: If I had my way I would have a nice gust of wind just come on by and blow them off the top where they both plummet dangerously out to the floor where they meet their most fortunate deaths. For real, this match is in major need of that type of drama.
Rich Russillo: HARPER HAS SOSA, SHE PULLS HIM IN AND DELIVERS….DIRTY FIREWORKS OFF THE TOP! THE AVALANCHE SWINGING NECKBREAKER CONNECTS! SOSA HENDERSON IS LAID OUT MOMENTARILY ON THE CANVAS BUT WHAT ELSE DOES HARPER HAVE IN MIND HERE! HARPER GRABS SOSA FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUP-NOPE!
James Peters: THE EAW CHAMPION FIGHTING OFF THE GERMAN SUPLEX WITH STINGING BACK ELBOWS AND NOW HARPER LEE RELEASES SOSA! SOSA WITH A SUPERKICK THAT KNOCKS DOWN HARPER TO THE CANVAS! NOW SOSA STEPS OUT TO THE APRON AND ONCE MORE HE CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! HE’S GOING TO FLY! AIR SOSA BOMB OFF THE TOP! HARPER MOVES BUT LOOK AT THE ATHLETICISM OF BULLETPROOF SOSA HENDERSON! HE LANDS ON HIS FEET! HOW DID HE MANAGE THAT!!??
Rich Russillo: Not for long. Harper Lee with the leg sweep takes SOSA Henderson off his feet and a STORMBREAKER! THE STEP UP DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE MIDSECTION OF SOSA HENDERSON! HARPER LEE OFF THE ROPES AS SOSA GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! SHE GRABS SOSA AROUND THE NECK AND DELIVERS A JUMPING DDT, AND THE CHAMPION IS DOWN! HARPER LEE ROLLS OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG, SHOOTING THE HALF! THE REFEREE IS IN GOOD POSITION! THIS WOULD BE A WIN THAT’S BIG FOR HARPER LEE’S CAREER IF SHE CAN KEEP SOSA HENDERSON’S SHOULDERS DOWN FOR A THREE HERE!
James Peters: NO!!!! SOSA Henderson is still alive, and now Harper can hardly believe it! She gives the referee a bit of a glance, but nothing demonizing in the least. Now Harper gets back to her feet and waits for SOSA to get his feet and slowly he’s staggering back to his feet! SOSA IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HERE COMES HARPER LEE TO MEET HIM! SHE GRABS HIM AND SHE’S LOOKING FOR THE FLATLINER! WAIT A MINUTE! SOSA TAKES HARPER DOWN TO THE CANVAS NOW! HE’S LOCKED CROSSFACE! OUT OF NOWHERE!
Rich Russillo: WHERE SHE GONNA GO!!?? HARPER’S TRAPPED IN THAT DREADED CROSSFACE!
Persephone: GOOD! PLEASE SUBMIT OR GO TO SLEEP AND END THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL! PLEASE!!!!! FOR MY SANITY!
James Peters: THIS COULD END UP BEING IT FOR HARPER LEE! SHE’S FROM THE DYNASTY BRAND BUT YOU CAN TELL THE VIRTUAL CROWD ARE COMPLETELY BEHIND HER! BUT SHE’S RUNNING OUT OF TIME! SHE NEEDS TO GET TO THE ROPES! SHE’S GOTTA FIND A WAY TO ESCAPE! WILL HARPER LEE TAP OUT HERE!!??
Rich Russillo: NOBODY WOULD BLAME HER, NOT AGAINST THE FAVORED EAW CHAMPION! SHE’S PROVEN HER POINT AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED! SHE’S ONLY PROLOGING THE PAIN THAT CROSS MUST BE CAUSING HER RIGHT NOW! SHE’S FLAILING EVERYWHERE DOING ALL SHE CAN TO GET OUT OF THIS!
James Peters: HER LEG! HARPER’S LEG JUST FOUND THE BOTTOM ROPE AND REFEREE IS STARTING HIS MANDATORY COUNT! HE GET’S TO FIVE BUT SOSA IS NOT LETTING GO! THIS MAY BE A DISQUALIFICATION HERE, AND SOSA MAY NOT CARE! NOW THE REFEREE IS PHYSICALLY INTERJECTING HIMSELF TRYING TO PRY SOSA HENDERSON OFF HARPER LEE! SOSA FINALLY RELEASES THE CROSSFACE!
Rich Russillo: But now SOSA definitely has issue with the referee putting his hands on him, and he’s just glaring at the referee, intimidating him.
James Peters: Meanwhile behind him Harper Lee is using the ropes to bring herself back to her feet. She sees an opening and takes it, surprising the EAW Champion from behind! SOSA turns around in time however and now sends Harper to the corner and looks to follow up but Harper locks the leg of SOSA! HARPER ROLLS THROUGH AND TAKES SOSA WITH HER! DEVIL’S FRUIT!! THE CALF CRUSHER BY HARPER LEE!! NOW SHE’S PUTTING PRESSURE ON THE CHAMPION AND IS IT EVER AGONIZING! SOSA REACHES OUT FOR THE ROPES BUT HE’S NOT QUITE THERE! WILL THE EAW CHAMPION SUBMIT!!?? THE VIRTUAL CROWD IS GOING NUTS FOR HARPER LEE! BUT NOW SOSA IS FINALLY STARTING TO INCH CLOSER TO THE ROPES!
Rich Russillo: YOU MEAN HE’S FINALLY COME TO HIS SENSES REALIZING THAT HE’S STRONGER THAN HARPER! HE’S STILL IN PAIN AS HE INCHES CLOSER TO THE ROPES! HE FINALLY REACHES THEM, BARELY!
James Peters: SOSA Henderson reaches the bottom rope! Now the referee taps on Harper Lee’s shoulder, but she’s not letting go now! She’s gotta let him go or she’ll risk disqualification herself if she’s not careful.
Persephone: What the hell? This virgin Mary is actually going to stand up to someone bigger than her, and this dude in stripes is just going to take it like bitch! So sad.
Rich Russillo: Harper goes back to work though as she grabs up SOSA Henderson and she’s going for DUAL SHOCK! THE KAMIGOYE KNEE STRIKE TO THE CHAMPION!
James Peters; NO!!! SOSA ESCAPES AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT AND AVOIDS THE CONTACT! STOLE YO BITCH! THE JUMPING CUTTER IS AVOIDED BY HARPER LEE WHO SHOVES SOSA HENDERSON TO THE ROPES! HARPER GOES FOR THE DRAGON FIST ONCE MORE BUT SOSA GRABS HER ARM AND TRANSITIONS THROUGH RIGHT INTO STOLE YO BITCH AGAIN! THIS TIME HE CONNECTS! THE CHAMPION GOT HER! HARPER LEE IS DOWN AND OUT AND SOSA HENDERSON DROPS DOWN TO HOOK THE LEG AND THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef starts up again and the victorious EAW Champion, SOSA Henderson, begins slowly rising up to his feet. He’s immediately handed the EAW Championship and has his hand raised by the referee.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, by pinfall…..THE EAW CHAMPION…”BULLETPROOF” SOSA!!!!!!!! HENDERSON!!!!!!
(Then with the belt draped over his shoulder, SOSA is shown pointing toward the hard camera as he has some words, seemingly taunting the virtual crowd that showers him with nothing but boos as he does.)
James Peters: As you would expect any Voltage main event, both SOSA Henderson, The EAW Champion, and Harper Lee one half of the current Unified Tag Team Champions delivered just that. SOSA Henderson had control of the contest early, but as we eluded two on a couple of occasions Harper Lee is extremely resilient and she didn’t disappoint tonight, did she Rich?
Rich Russillo: No, no she didn’t. But in my opinion the right elitist won. SOSA Henderson came out here tonight with a clear mission to make yet another statement as we close in on Road To Redemption and that’s exactly what he did tonight! He’s got so much momentum right now it’s hard to imagine him being stopped.
(The celebration in the ring continues as the EAW Champion continues to taunt into the camera as Harper Lee has rolled out of the ring and disappears from the shot. Then the shot moves to the stage, and the virtual crowd begins to buzz, where we see both Terry Chambers and TLA The Corona Hombres suddenly appear. SOSA Henderson finally takes notice of them, then he turns to them and then hoists up the EAW Championship.)
James Peters: And we seem to have company.
Rich Russillo: That we do.
Persephone: Great. Don’t tell me I’ve got the wrong program again this week. I really hope this is the end.
James Peters: The Corona Hombres definitely have a great deal of interest in that man, SOSA Henderson, and of course the EAW Championship. This year’s Road To Redemption promises to be the best we’ve ever had and with Terry Chambers and TLA now in the Extreme Elimination Chamber joining the champion SOSA Henderson it promises to be the most electrifying chamber match yet.
(SOSA Henderson is shown once more. Then suddenly the crowd begins to buzz again because of something going on in the background.)
Rich Russillo: LOOK OUT FROM BEHIND! THE EAW CHAMPION SOSA HENDERSON WAS JUST ATTACKED FROM BEHIND! DOWN GOES SOSA! BUT BY WHO!
(‘Faneto’ dies suddenly as the action in the ring takes place.)
James Peters: IT’S AZRAEL! WHAT IS HE DOING HERE! AZRAEL HAS BURST ON THE SCENE HERE OUT OF NOWHERE! I THINK HE CAME FROM UNDER THE RING! AND HE’S JUST DOMINATING THE EAW CHAMPION RIGHT NOW! HE’S GOT A STEEL CHAIN WRAPPED AROUND HIS FIST AND HE’S ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS WITH HIS ASSAULT OF ONE MOUNTED PUNCH AFTER ANOTHER! AND THE CHAMPION’S FACE HAS TURNED TO A CRIMSON RED! SNARLING CAN BE HEARD FOLLOWED BY A LOUD CACKLE FROM THE DERANGED AZRAEL! BUT WHY!!?? WHY’S HE OUT HERE!!?? WHY NOW???
(The shot goes back to The Corona Hombres who look on not quite knowing themselves what to make of this scene. Then suddenly, as if seeming sensing they’re being watched the whole time, Terry and TLA turn around to see the brother of Azrael, Mr. Jacobs, looking on with a satisfying smile on his face. This leaves both of The Corona Hombres with expressions that can say no other words but “WTF”.)
Rich Russillo: And look on the stage, it’s Azrael’s brother, Mr. Jacobs! And he seems to be enjoying every second of Azrael tearing into SOSA Henderson!
James Peters: FINALLY AZRAEL RELENTS! THIS MONSTER IS NOW STANDING OVER OUR EAW CHAMPION WHO’S LAID OUT IN A POOL OF HIS OWN BLOOD! AZRAEL HAS ALSO TAKEN HOLD OF THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP UP HIGH! THINGS ARE DEFINITELY GETTING INTERESTING! DOES AZRAEL WANT A PIECE OF EACH COMPETITOR THAT’S GOING TO BE IN THE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER!!?? WE KNOW HE LOVES INFLICTING PAIN ON OTHERS AND I HAVE A BAD FEELING HE WOULD JUST FEEL RIGHT AT HOME IN A STRUCTURE LIKE THAT!
Rich Russillo: I’M NOT SURE, BUT I KNOW I’LL BE HERE NEXT WEEK TO SEE MORE THIS DEVELOPING EVENT SURROUNDING THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP UNFOLD! I CA’T WAIT!
James Peters: FOLKS WE’RE ALL OUT OF TIME. FOR RICH RUSSILLO AND PERSEPHONE TSITSIPAS, I’M JAMES PETERS AND WE’LL SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK!
(The last shot shows the whole scene on stage once more as Terry and TLA look on at Mr. Jacobs and then back at Azrael who is still holding the EAW Championship up high as the scene fades to black.)
(EAW Logo buzzes)
