(EAW intro plays.)
(Voltage begins with two highlight videos featuring the excitement and drama that went down at King of Elite and Clash of Kingdoms. After the highlights fade out, gold and white pyro explodes from the stage. “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami is blaring through the sold-out Alerus Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The excited fans are on their feet and after the camera finishes panning around the arena, it cuts to the broadcast booth where James Peters and Rich Russillo are standing. They wear t-shirts to shame Jesse Barlow tonight, the slogan demanding that Barlow apologize to Woogie. Both are grinning, excited to see what’s in store for the men and women of Voltage tonight.)
James Peters: Welcome everyone to another edition of Sunday Night Voltage! Like always, I’m James Peters, and I’m joined by Rich Russillo. How are you tonight, Rich?
Rich Russillo: I’m great! Not sure why you just asked me how I am since we’ve been literally spending every minute of this day together, but whatever! We have a great show tonight, coming off back-to-back free-per-view events. The Voltage roster doesn’t have a lot of time to recover either because Shock Value is right around the corner.
James Peters: That’s right and after what took place in Doha last weekend, our main event for Shock Value is set.
Rich Russillo: After disrupting the match between Malcolm Jones and Rex McAllister, Charlie Marr would get into a non-physical altercation (because Doha) with the EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine. The footage is on our website, EAW.com, but Charlie would demand his rematch for the EAW World Championship, and Andrea, being the fighting champion she’s known to be, would agree. The two are scheduled to face one another in the same match that Charlie won to become EAW World Champion, an Electrified Steel Cage of Death Match.
James Peters: :wow: Both Charlie and Andrea are known for competing in some of the most insane matches EAW has ever seen, and there’s no doubt that when these two face off against one another at Shock Value for the EAW Championship, sparks will fly.
Rich Russillo: …
James Peters: Because Shock Value. Sparks. Get it?
Rich Russillo: No.
(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta begins to blare across the arena which makes the fans extremely angry.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome, Charlie and Jordie Marr!!!
(The crowd jeers as the couple walk out. Jordie is dressed in a tight, red mini-dress and sky high Jimmy Choo stilettos. Charlie is in his gear because he has a match later on. They make their way to the ring and Jordie sits down on the ropes for Charlie. Bella passes the microphone to Charlie before exiting, and ‘The Libertine’ takes a moment to enjoy the negative reaction from the crowd.)
Charlie Marr: Jordie, what’s the saying in our home?
(The petite blonde bombshell bats her eyes at her man and smiles serenely.)
Jordie Marr: What Charlie wants, Charlie gets.
Charlie Marr: That’s correct, and what I want right now is my EAW World Championship back.
(The crowd doesn’t like that at all.)
Charlie Marr: I never would have lost the title in the first place if it hadn’t been for Malcolm Jones sticking his ugly face into my business. I completely decimated every inferior fucking person inside that Extreme Elimination Chamber back at Road to Redemption and was in the process of ending that stupid fucking cumrag, that dumb bitch who isn’t even good enough to lick my ass and call me King, and then his music hit. I can’t even begin to describe the overwhelming rage that coursed through my veins when Malcolm stepped onto the stage. Losing to Andrea was a fucking travesty, and seeing her parade around and disgrace my championship makes me sick to my stomach. There’s a reason the Voltage ratings have plummeted since Andrea’s been the champion and that’s because no one wants to watch some stupid fucking slut masquerade as a world champion.
(Charlie shakes his head in pure disgust. It’s completely obvious that it makes him sick to his stomach to relive the events that happened at Road to Redemption. Jordie puts a comforting hand on his arm and rubs his bicep, and Charlie gives her an appreciative smile.)
Charlie Marr: It’s heartbreaking because Voltage has been my home for two years now. I eat, sleep, and breathe this brand and have proudly carried it on my back. Winning the EAW Championship back at Bloodsport was the culmination of all my hard work, and my championship reign is no doubt one of, if not the greatest that belt has ever seen. It’s tough, you know? Imagine being the King and seeing the prostitute that stole your crown with the help of a common street thug who simps for her walk around as if she’s actually worth something. It’s sickening to see Andrea with my crown, my fucking title. What has she ever done to deserve such an honor? I don’t want to hear some shitty speech about how she’s a hard worker, and how she’s paid her dues, and all that other fucking garbage people like to talk about when it comes to their favorite getting their so-called ‘just due.’ This is a combat sport, and I’ll tell you one thing. There’s no one on Voltage who deserves anything except for me. I’ll be damned if anyone tries to tell me that Andrea Valentine is a deserving champion. She ain’t shit, and I can’t wait to beat her to a bloody fucking pulp come Shock Value. If there’s anyone this match favors, it’s me, because low and behold, I’ve won it already! I don’t give a damn if Andrea has competed in deadly matches before. She’s never competed against me in one.
Charlie Marr: We’re not about to count the Extreme Elimination Chamber as a legitimate showcase of Andrea Valentine’s talent. That whore had the help of five other people, including Malcolm, help her to her ‘big’ victory. When it’s 5-on-1 inside the chamber, I would say that everyone else’s chance of winning becomes much higher. All those motherfuckers ganged up on me because they know Charlie Marr can’t be fucked with in a one-on-one match. They had to work together and take me down, and the second one of them deviated from the plan, they all crumbled. Jack Ripley is a egomaniacal piece of shit who has never given a damn about anyone other than himself. The fact the others thought they could trust him just shows how stupid they are. But Ripley, Terry, Ms. Extreme, and Rex got a reality check as they all fell at my hands, and Andrea was about to suffer a similar fate.
Charlie Marr: Fuck you, Malcolm. Seriously man, fuck you. Fuck you. Beating your ass in Doha was the theraputic release I needed because we all know you can’t do a fucking thing about it. You can’t show your stupid face around here because if you do, I will have your ass thrown in jail. You dumb fucking cocksucker. You simp. Andrea will probably fuck you because she’s the type who would get off on having a vegetable shoved in that gaping vag-
(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX hits and fans erupt as the EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine walks out. Andrea is dressed in a pair of skinny jeans, black, over-the-knee flat boots, and a long-sleeved black crop top. The EAW World Championship is across her shoulder and she raises it in the air. She has a smile on her face as she makes her way down to the ring. Once Andrea is inside, she rolls her eyes at Charlie, turns her back, and poses with the belt for the fans. Charlie looks completely disgusted by this, and after a moment, Andrea pulls a microphone from the back pocket of her jeans.)
Andrea Valentine: There is really only so much bullshit I can listen to because my patience is very short whenever it comes to you. It’s really unfortunate that someone like you exists, and even with the beating you took at the hands of Jamie O’Hara in the King of Elite finals, I’m really not surprised that you have the audacity to come out here and still consider yourself the King of Voltage. I think I speak for literally everyone in the EAW Universe except for Jordie that you are nothing more than a court jester, and someone that the rest of laugh at because of the wild things you say. You’re funny in a lot of ways, Charlie, but perhaps the funniest thing you have ever said is that I’m not a deserving champion. I am more than deserving of this EAW World Championship, and at Shock Value you are going to be on the receiving end of absolutely everything I’ve got in my tank. I am prepared to fight to the death in order to defend this championship and keep it from you. While I’m not going to stand here and deny that the stars didn’t align for me back at Road to Redemption, and I definitely don’t feel bad that you finally got the dose of karma that’s been coming your way for the longest time, I will make sure that you see just how deserving of this belt I am come to Shock Value.
(Charlie gives Andrea a fake smile and reaches out, patting her on the head like she’s nothing more than a pet. Andrea immediately throws a punch at Charlie, that he quickly deflects and he snatches Andrea by the wrist, pries her fingers apart, and bends them back. Andrea’s muffled cries of pain are heard as Charlie forces her to her knees.)
Charlie Marr: A more fitting position, if you ask me.
(Without showing any mercy, Charlie snaps Andrea’s middle and index finger, breaking them and he kicks her away from him.)
Charlie Marr: I don’t think you fucking understand that I have the ability to not only end your championship reign, but your entire worthless career. All this shit that you claim you’ve worked for is going to come crumbling down on you at Shock Value because I’m taking my goddamn title back and I plan on snapping your neck in the process.
(Andrea is absolutely fuming as she looks down at her mangled hand. Her two fingers are both bent at awkward angles, and it’s pretty cringe worthy to be honest. The blonde is in obvious pain, but the way her face is flushed at the moment is due to nothing but pure anger. The fans are chanting her name, and Andrea picks herself up, using her good hand to snatch the fallen microphone up from the ground.)
Andrea Valentine: It’s going to take a hell of a lot more than brute force to get me into a position for you even try and snap my neck, and end me. You know damn well that I will never be intimidated by someone like you; someone I beat cleanly before and had a victory over before the match was restarted.
(Andrea reaches down and retrieves her championship, using the same hand she’s holding the microphone with and drapes it across her shoulder.)
Andrea Valentine: It will be a cold day in Hell before I ever allow you to get close to this belt.
(Charlie laughs and goes to reply, but he’s cut off by an unfamiliar theme. “Scenario” by the late Pop Smoke begins to blast across the arena. That catches both champ and challenger off guard and they both turn towards the stage.)
James Peters: OH MY GOD! MALCOLM JONES! MALCOLM JONES IS BACK ON VOLTAGE!
Rich Russillo: Look at Charlie’s face, James! He looks completely stunned! The last we heard, Charlie Marr had a restraining order on Malcolm Jones!
James Peters: I think all that went out the window last weekend when Charlie ruined the match between Malcolm and Rex. I can’t fucking wait to see what Malcolm has to say!
(Malcolm is dressed in a custom fit Gucci suit, and pauses on the stage. He bows his head for a moment, paying tribute to the man who played him to the ring at Bloodsport and his friend, Pop Smoke, and then he raises the cross on his blingy necklace to the sky. Malcolm then makes his way to the ring, leaving Charlie looking completely flabbergasted by this turn of events.)
Charlie Marr: YOU CAN’T BE HERE!
(Malcolm gets into the ring and snatches the microphone from Charlie.)
Malcolm Jones: Shut the fuck up. The only thing that matters right now is that I miss Pop Smoke.
Charlie Marr: I don’t give a damn about your feelings towards Pop Smoke and neither does the rest of the world. I’m calling the police and you’re going to jail.
Andrea Valentine: What’s wrong, Charlie? Are you scared of Malcolm?
(Charlie gives Andrea a murderous look.)
Charlie Marr: Seriously? Did everything I just say to you earlier not register in that tiny little whore brain of yours??
Malcolm Jones: That restraining order bullshit flew right out the window the second you laid your hands on me when I was beating the Vanilla Bitch’s ass last week. EAW knows the value I bring and they need me on TV, and they blocked your shitty little restraining order because me not being on TV is a breach of my contract, and now you find yourself royally fucked because you not only pissed me off, you not only pissed off PAWGentine, but you done pissed off the Board of Directors AND Captain Charisma.
(Charlie has placed Jordie in front of as a barrier between Malcolm and Andrea and himself. He’s honestly shocked at this turn of events.)
Malcolm Jones: You goading Andrea into accepting an Electrified Steel Cage of Death Match is nothing more than you attempting to play mind games with someone who is on a level that is far above you. How the fuck you gunna win the championship back without Veena around? How the fuck you even gunna survive on Voltage anymore? You think the beating and reality check you got at Road to Redemption was bad? You think Jamie snapping and beating your ass in the King of Elite finals was bad? Bruh, you got me to deal with now. The day is coming, you bald-headed bitch, and it might be here sooner than you think.
Charlie Marr: The fuck does that mean?
Malcolm Jones: :mjgrin: It means that don’t nobody around here trust you. We all know you a desperate little pussy who’s gunna do whatever he can to win the championship at Shock Value, and while Andrea don’t need anyone to fight her battles, Captain Charisma has decided there’s gunna be a special guest referee for the match who will call things right down the line, who won’t crack under the pressure of idle threats you ain’t even capable of backing up anyway, and who can’t be bribed with money.
(Andrea looks at Malcolm, but the expression on her face isn’t one that’s easily read.)
Andrea Valentine: A special guest referee? As if things aren’t already chaotic knowing there’s weapons inside of a steel cage that is coursing with electricity. Who’s the referee since you seem to already know SO much about this.
(Malcolm winks at the champ before staring Charlie right in his eyes.)
Malcolm Jones: The special guest referee will be me.
(Charlie closes his eyes and lets the microphone fall from his hands. Jordie has already turned towards him and is talking softly, trying to say whatever she can to reassure him that things will be okay. Charlie’s hands clench into fists, and he’s desperately trying to block out the roar of the crowd.)
Malcolm Jones: Oh! And before I forget…
(Charlie’s eyes open back up. Malcolm is smirking.)
Malcolm Jones: Whoever wins at Shock Value has a date with me at Grand Rampage for the EAW World Championship.
(“Scenario” by Pop Smoke begins to play and the crowd is beside themselves.)
James Peters: Did he just say…
Rich Russillo: YES! MALCOLM JONES WILL BE THE SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE AT SHOCK VALUE FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AND HE’LL BE FACING THE WINNER AT GRAND RAMPAGE!
James Peters: :whew: Oh man.
Rich Russillo: LOOK! Malcolm Jones just went to leave the ring but Charlie rushed him! ANDREA VALENTINE USES HER GOOD HAND TO GRAB THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OFF HER SHOULDER AND SHE WHIPS CHARLIE IN THE FACE WITH IT! MALCOLM WHIRLS AROUND AND SEES CHARLIE IS DOWN AND HE GRABS HIM UP BY THE BEARD! JORDIE MARR HAS RAN FROM THE RING AND CHARLIE IS BY HIMSELF! MALCOLM WITH ‘BUCK 50’!!! THE TORNADO FACEBUSTER CONNECTS!!!!
James Peters: ANDREA HAS GONE TO THE TOP ROPE! ‘MAGIC HOUR’!!! THE ROUNDING MOONSAULT CONNECTS ON CHARLIE!!!!
(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to play as Malcolm flashes Andrea an appreciative look. The champ rolls off Charlie, clutches her broken fingers in pain, and stares up at Malcolm. She gives him a nod before shaking off the injury, grabbing her belt, and exiting the ring. Malcolm watches her go, as Jordie slips into the ring to collect Charlie.)
(Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Dunkin Donuts.)
(When Voltage returns from break, the camera focuses on Bella while Rich and James are talking in the background.)
James Peters: Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next we have a very interesting bout between The Grizzly Bear, Joe Rocco and The Welsh Dragon, Alun Wyn Jones. Power versus technique, brute force versus speed, in what is going to be a turning point in the early careers of these two Elitists!
Rich Russillo: And don’t forget! The winner of this match will get a chance to fight at the upcoming EAW free-per-view Shock Value in the Unique Opportunity match! I cannot wait to see what happens!
Bella Braxton: The following contest is set for one fall!
(“Line up” by Aerosmith echoes throughout the arena as Joe Rocco appears on stage)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Billings, Montana. Weighing in at 330 pounds… He is the Grizzly Bear, JOE ROCCO!!!
James Peters: Joe Rocco said this earlier this week. He’s not here to make friends, he’s not here to be the poster boy of EAW either. He is here to hurt people and tonight he has Alun Wyn Jones in his sight.
Rich Russillo: This match is going to be incredibly interesting. On one side we have the raw strength and power of The Grizzly Bear, on the other side we have the wrestler Alun Wyn Jones, someone who is all about wrestling and technical prowess. Who is going to win tonight on Voltage?
James Peters: Remember this is not just for bragging rights! Who wins tonight will go on to Shock Value and will have the chance to compete in the “Unique Opportunity” match!
(Joe Rocco enters the ring as his theme song fades out)
(“Mother” by Idles blasts through the speakers as Alun Wyn Jones makes his entrance to a strong reaction from the crowd)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… from Caerphilly, South Wales! Weighing in at 212 pounds… He is he Welsh Dragon… ALUN WYN JONES!!!
James Peters: Now Alun Wyn Jones is someone I can get behind. He’s humble, talented and professional. He has momentum on his side as he comes off an impressive win in his EAW debut at Fight Grid… Tonight he is going to make sure these fans get what they paid for.
Rich Russillo: You can say that, partner. The Welsh Dragon has a literal mountain to climb tonight on Voltage, but that’s the roadblock he has to face in order to get to Shock Value! No excuses! It’s going down tonight and we are all ready for it.
(Jones waves at the crowd as his song fades out)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The referee signals the timekeeper and the match officially starts! Alun Wyn Jones and Joe Rocco are squaring off tonight! The two immediately lock up in the middle of the ring… What the hell? Joe Rocco just pushed Alun Wyn Jones to the ground with ease! So much for a test of strength! Joe Rocco is now flexing his muscles. The Grizzly Bear is not playing games tonight!
Rich Russillo: Alun Wyn Jones looks shocked as he quickly gets back to his feet. Joe Rocco tries to grapple him but Jones ducks underneath and hits him with a swift kick right to the back of the knee. Another kick to the leg! Joe Rocco is now down to one knee. Alun Wyn Jones trying to make the most out of this opening, he runs to the ropes, bounces off the rebound and… JOE ROCCO CAUGHT HIM! ROCCO JUST GRABBED ALUN WYN JONES BY HIS NECK!!!
James Peters: Joe Rocco lifts Alun Wyn Jones way above his head! MILITARY PRESS SLAM!!! What a nasty fall for Jones who bounces off the mat screaming in agony! Joe Rocco goes for the cover…
Rich Russillo: Nope! Only a two count. Joe Rocco with an impressive display of power here. But I wouldn’t count Alun Wyn Jones out just yet. The guy is a true wrestler, he will find a way to turn things around!
James Peters: Both men back to their feet once again, Joe Rocco drags Jones all the way to the corner. Knee lift straight to the gut of his opponent, and then a stiff forearm to the back of his neck. Alun Wyn Jones collapses to the mat, in a seated position… Joe Rocco takes a few steps back…. What does he have in mind?
Rich Russillo: Joe Rocco charges in for a splash! NO! Nobody’s home! Jones got out of the way just in time! The Grizzly Bear is stunned! Alun Wyn Jones gets back to his feet, he charges in and leaps in the air… TORNADO DDT!!! He got all of that! Joe Rocco is down! The cover!!!
Rich Russillo: Joe Rocco powers out at two! This is far from over! Joe Rocco now on his knees, he’s trying to recover… But Jones is right on top of him! Stiff kick to Rocco! And another one! Joe Rocco doesn’t seem like he’s feeling the pain… Alun Wyn Jones runs to the ropes once again, he goes for a clothesline… Joe Rocco reversed! And now Alun Wyn Jones has been caught! BEARHUG! The Bearhug is locked in right in the middle of the ring!
James Peters: The referee checks in on Jones to make sure he still wants to continue! The Grizzly Bear has him! Jones is slowly fading… will he tap out?! The referee lifts his hand up… YES! Jones is still in this! A stiff jab right to Joe Rocco’s face! An elbow! Jones is trying to escape the hold! And he does! Joe Rocco has to let him out!
Rich Russillo: No time to catch his breath! Jones has to press the advantage! JAWBREAKER!!! That’s gonna buy him some time! Joe Rocco stumbles back all the way to the corner… Alun Wyn Jones charges in!!! ELBOW RIGHT TO THE FACE OF JOE!!! And then… ENZIGURI!!! HE GOT ALL OF THAT!!!
James Peters: The Grizzly Bear collapses to the mat… will that be enough? Jones with the cover…
Rich Russillo: NOOOO! Kickout! I thought he had him there! What’s it going to take to bring down the beast!? Jones pulling out all the stops, he’s now climbing the top turnbuckle, the crowd is going nuts! They know what’s coming next!!! Are we gonna see the Neutral Milk Elbow?!!
James Peters: Jones takes flight…. NEUTRAL MILK ELBOW!!! Right on target! He got him!!! The cover!
Rich Russillo: Joe Rocco powers out yet again! I cannot believe this! Alun Wyn Jones staring at the light… he’s catching his breath and thinking “what do I have to do to put this man down?”
James Peters: Jones has a lot left in his arsenal, I’m sure. There are so many ways he can get this big man to sleep. Just wait and see. Alun Wyn Jones now is stalking Joe Rocco, waiting for him to get up… Joe Rocco is back to his feet, Jones with a series of stiff punches to the face! Joe ducks, SNAP DDT!! NO! Joe Rocco reversed the Caroline Street Massacre and just pushed his opponent out of the way! Not tonight kid!
Rich Russillo: Jones charges in yet again. HE GETS CAUGHT!!! STALLING BRAINBUSTER!!! Joe Rocco just planted him! Is he dead? Joe with the cover!!!
James Peters: Jones kicks out! Jones is still alive! What an impressive display from both of these competitors! They are not giving up! Both of them want to get to Shock Value!
Rich Russillo: Joe Rocco wants to end it now! He picks up Alun Wyn Jones, throws him to the ropes, he catches him off the rebound… BLACK HOLE SLA— No! Jones reversed it! He wraps his leg around Rocco’s neck and he connects with a beautiful Headscissor! What a counter! Rocco is stunned!
James Peters: This might be the opening Jones needs to put this match away! Joe Rocco is stunned near the ropes… his back is turned… Jones goes for his Nos Da! JUMPING NECKBREAKER!
Rich Russillo: Joe Rocco grabs the ropes as Jones falls hard to the mat! The Nos Da did not connect! Veteran move from The Grizzly Bear who used the ropes to counter Jones’ finisher! Smart move! Now Joe Rocco just rams through Jones with an insanely stiff shoulder block!!! Jones bounces off the mat, almost lifeless at this point!
James Peters: This match has been back and forth since the start! Unbelievable! Jones is back on his feet… Joe Rocco catches him! BLACK HOLE SLAM!!! He calls that the Swinging Wrecking Ball! This time it connects! He got all of that… Joe goes for the cover! It’s over!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! Alun Wyn Jones somehow managed to roll out of the ring just before Joe could cover him up! Unbelievable ring awareness shown here by Jones! Joe Rocco can’t believe it! He had him!
James Peters: Joe Rocco is irate! He now exits the ring and… wait! What does this beast have in mind?! Look out! Joe Rocco is tearing apart the announce table! Watch out! The referee has started to count…
Rich Russillo: But Joe doesn’t seem to care! He said he wanted to hurt Jones and he is going to do just that! Joe Rocco lifts up the lifeless body of Alun Wyn Jones… he places him on the top of the table…
James Peters: Joe Rocco now climbs the steel steps, he’s on the apron…. No way! Joe Rocco is climbing the turnbuckle! He’s going all the way to the top! His back against Jones who is still laying clueless on the top of the announce table!
Rich Russillo: No way! NO WAY! Don’t do it! Joe Rocco is going for his finishing move… Joe takes flight… MOONSAULT!!! JOE ROCCO JUST HIT A MOONSAULT THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! A 330 POUNDS BEAST JUST SQUASHED ALUN WYN JONES!!! The crowd is going nuts!!!
James Peters: What the f… just happened! I’m at a loss for words here!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The referee just counted both men out! Joe Rocco just flattened Alun Wyn Jones with an insane Moonsault! He calls it the CannonballSault! Send prayers to Alun’s family! The EMTs might just have to scrape what’s left of him off the ground with a scalpel
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen… the match ended in a double count out!
Rich Russillo: This is how much Shock Value meant to these two men! These two ELITISTS! An absolutely impressive performance from both of them in their Voltage debut! They are both destined to do big things here in EAW!
James Peters: Yeah but what does that mean for Shock Value? We did not have a clear winner tonight! Who’s going to Shock Value? I guess we are going to find out soon enough!
(The camera catches one last look at Rocco and Jones before fading into the backstage area.)
(Sofia Clarke is standing by with the living legend, The Woogieman.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, the incomparable… Woogieman!
(The Woogieman lowers his sunglasses and raises his eyebrow.)
The Woogieman: Sofia.
Sofia Clarke: Woogie. How are you doing today?
The Woogieman: The Woogieman has a lot on his mind, Sofia, and it all centers around Jesse Barlow. Now that sonofabitch wanted some help figuring out who his birth parents are and The Woogieman used his impressive connections to get that information to Jesse Barlow. Because he wasn’t prepared to handle the truth, Jesse Barlow decided to attack The Woogieman and accuse him of being a liar. Sofia, does The Woogieman look like a liar to you?
(Sofia licks her ruby red lips and takes a good look at The Woogieman. She definitely decides to enjoy the view for a moment especially with Woogie looking like a total snack in his gold silk shirt and black dress pants.)
Sofia Clarke: You definitely don’t look like a liar, Woogie.
The Woogieman: Of course The Woogieman doesn’t because he is not a liar. What would he have to gain from steering a man like Jesse Barlow in the wrong direction? Jesse Barlow sought The Woogieman out for his own personal gain, needing someone with Woogie’s kind of star power to help him spread his message and gain followers and even though The Woogieman wants nothing to do with that, The Woogieman got to enjoy the company of the fine Hannah Marin for a couple of weeks and try to do something good. Now, The Woogieman is salty because Jesse Barlow attacked him and tried to put him out of action, and that’s why tonight, The Woogieman is demanding an apology from Jesse Barlow.
Sofia Clarke: :lupe: Do you really think Jesse is going to apologize to you for his actions?
(A smirk spreads across The Woogieman’s face.)
The Woogieman: Jesse Barlow doesn’t have a choice but to apologize for his actions or else The Woogieman will be forced to resort to extreme measures.
Sofia Clarke: :lupe:! :lupe:! Extreme measures?! What do you mean?!
The Woogieman: Well, Voltage has a free-per-view event coming up on March 7th and The Woogieman has already spoken with Captain Charisma about it. Should Jesse Barlow not apologize, then The Woogieman will be forced to beat Jesse Barlow’s ass in the first ever Electric Eel Deathmatch.
Sofia Clarke: … the what?
The Woogieman: Did The Woogie stutter, Sofia? An Electric Eel Deathmatch is exactly what you think it is. It involves two competitors fighting to the death and the only way to win is to maim your opponent and throw them into a swimming pool full of electric eels.
Sofia Clarke: I thought you were a proud sponsor of PETA?
The Woogieman: The PETA organization understands that The Woogieman has to take care of business. He’s trying to avoid taking measures this extreme, but if he has to make Jesse Barlow sleep with the eels, then so be it. The Woogieman is a punny guy.
(Hannah Marin walks into the picture. She gives Woogie a look of pure disgust and places her hands on her hips.)
Hannah Marin: You know as well as I do that Jesse will NOT be apologizing to you! You have done nothing but toy with him and his emotions since he reached out to you, offering you an opportunity to fight the good fight with us. The three of us could have done a lot of good for this world but you decided to screw around with Jesse’s real life and exploit a situation that means so much to him.
The Woogieman: The Woogieman did nothing but get the truth for Jesse, and that’s a fact, Hannah. He wanted answers and he got answers. No one could have imagined that he was sold to the mob. At least he knows, and he can deal with that in his own time, but to attack The Woogieman? To shoot the proverbial messenger? The Woogieman isn’t going to take that lying down.
Hannah Marin: You’re not getting an apology. Jesse did nothing wrong.
The Woogieman: Then you will apologize for him. Now. Apologize to The Woogieman for your master’s actions.
Hannah Marin: Excuse me?
The Woogieman: If you get down on your knees and kiss The Woogieman’s foot, then The Woogieman will not face Jesse at Shock Value in an Electric Eel Deathmatch. He will be spared.
Hannah Marin: I most certainly will not kiss your foot and apologize. If you want a match with Jesse at Shock Value, then you’ve got it. Whatever stupid stipulation you want to put on this fight, then so be it. Just remember, Woogie, you reap what you sow, and Jesse has no problem lowering himself and competing in whatever stupid match this brand comes up with.
(The Woogieman completely removes his sunglasses and gives Hannah a hard look. He rakes his hand down his face and finally nods.)
The Woogieman: If that’s the way you want it, Hannah. Tell Jesse that The Woogieman will see him at Shock Value.
(The Woogieman glares at Hannah, puts his sunglasses back on, and walks out of sight. Hannah watches him go and bites down on her bottom lip. She may or may not be having second thoughts on accepting a match on Jesse’s behalf, but what’s done is done. Sofia gives her a serious look.)
Sofia Clarke: Hannah, do you have anything else to add to this?
(Hannah shakes her head and heads off, likely in search of Jesse. Sofia looks into the camera.)
Sofia Clarke: I guess that gives us another match for Shock Value. The Woogieman will take on Jesse Barlow in the first ever Electric Eel Deathmatch.
Sofia Clarke: We’ll be right back after the break.

(Voltage returns and once again, Rich and James are heard talking in the background.)
James Peters: Ladies & Gentleman, welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next, an intoxicating bout between two of Voltage’s most promising young stars, Komatsu “The Serpent King” Ogawa, and Shawn “The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air” Sturgis! This match appears to be a stylistic masterpiece, the unforgiving offense of Komatsu Ogawa, against the superb style of Shawn Sturgis. A win tonight not only promises to attract the eyes of EAW’s audience, but the winner of this bout earns a one way ticket to the ‘Unique Opportunity’ match at EAW’s very own Shock Value!
Rich Russillo: That’s right, James! Tonight, both men are presented with an unprecedented opportunity to elevate their career to tremendous heights! Both young stars have the opportunity to prove themselves as the most promising upcoming talent to grace the Voltage brand. Not to dismiss the eternal importance of making a name for yourself in the eyes of EAW’s audience, as you previously stated. Every week here on Voltage, young stars are given the chance to sink, or to swim, to make, or break their already unestablished careers. This match’s importance for both competitors, truly, cannot be stressed enough.
James Peters: Yeah, yeah, enough with the chit-chat, Rich! Let’s dive right into the match!
(‘Stabbing In The Dark’ by Ice Nine Kills begins to play, as Komatsu Ogawa graces the Voltage audience with his ominous and hideous presence.)
James Peters: Now Rich, Komatsu Ogawa has most certainly made his presence known in the Voltage locker up to this point. Komatsu’s ferocious attacks and savage tactics have proven to be quite the arsenal for Ogawa. Ogawa prefers a more venomous and calculated strategy when he steps into the squared circle. Whether you’re a champion, or not, Ogawa’s mission is to simply dissect those placed in his path. Attempting to tear his path of carnage through EAW’s talent list, breaking bones, tearing limbs, and ending careers, Komatsu Ogawa seems to enjoy every scintillating second of it.
Rich Russillo: Spot on there, James. Ogawa’s motives for competing are seemingly to inflict as much harm, pain, and chaos possibile. Not to mention Ogawa’s tendencies to bend the rules in his favor, especially when presented with the opportunity. Biting, scratching, mist, if you can imagine it, Ogawa will utilize it.
Bella Braxton: LADDDDIIIIIIEEEEESSSS ANNNNDDD GENNTTLLLEEEMMMAANNNNN……THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS A SINGLES BOUT, SCHEDULED FOOOORRRR ONNNNNEEE FALLLLLLLLL!!!! INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF TOKYO, JAPPPAAANNNN….WEIGHING IN AT 251lbs…. HE IS THE SERPENNNTTT KINGGGGGGG…..KOMAAAAATSSUUUUUUUU OOOOOOGGAAAAAAWWWAAAAAA!!!!
(‘Beautiful People’ by Marilyn Manson begins to play as The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air, Shawn Sturgis, appears in a strobe of colorful lights, creepily making his way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: ANNNNDDDD HIS OPPONENTTTTTT…..WRESTLING OUT OF RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIAAAAAAA….WEIGHING IN AT 190lbs…. HE IS THE FREESSSHHHH PRINCCEEE OF MIIIDDDDD AAAIIIRRRRRR, SHAAAWWWNNNNN STURRRRRGGIIIS!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Shawn Sturgis’ motivations for competing couldn’t be more different. Shawn Sturgis has a chip on his shoulder, he’s out to build his legacy, brick by brick. Shawn doesn’t compete with the hopes of injuring his opponent, or even inflicting pain on them. Though this doesn’t mean Shawn Sturgis is incapable of doing whatever is needed to win. He also, is willing to bend the rules in his favor. In fact, the face paint that Sturgis wears every time he graces our presence, represents both his light side and dark side.
James Peters: Quite an interesting note, Rich. Like you said, that chip on his shoulder is larger than anyone else on the roster. Shawn Sturgis believes he will forever be received as the underdog of the Voltage roster, that despite his best efforts, and most prideful displays of heart, he will never be thought of as a main eventer.
Rich Russillo: Both men are ring ready, let’s begin the match!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go! This electric bout is officially underway! Ogawa immediately storming Sturgis, pressuring Shawn back into the turnbuckles, quickly attempting to take early control of this match! OGAWA QUICKLY ATTEMPTING THE BROKEN FANG, THAT NASTY GERMAN-DRAGON SUPLEX COMBINATION….BUT SHAWN STURGIS AVOIDS IT AND COUNTERS WITH A NECKBREAKER!! OGAWA BACK UP TO HIS FEET, ATTEMPTING A CLOTHESLINE, BUT AGAIN SHAWN STURGIS COUNTERS, DUCKING UNDER THE CLOTHESLINE AND LAUNCHING OGAWA ACROSS THE RING! DROPPING THE SERPENT KING RIGHT ON HIS HEAD!! WHAT A SEQUENCE FROM SHAWN STURGIS!!
James Peters: Ogawa aimed to dictate the pace of this match right from the get go, but it backfired and now Shawn Sturgis has complete control of the match! Ogawa rolls out of the ring, wisely avoiding any further onslaught from Shawn Sturgis. But Sturgis isn’t going to give him any breathing room, he will offer him no quarter. Sturgis like an animal, stalking his prey from the other side of the ring…SHAWN STURGIS RUSHING IN WITH A LARIAT, BUT OGAWA AVOIDS IT, STURGIS GOING BACK TO THE WHALE AGAIN! BUT HE’S STOPPED, AND DRIVEN DOWN THE FLOOR WITH A DDT!! MY GOD, WHAT A MOVE FROM KOMATSU OGAWA, AND THE IMPACT WAS DOUBLED ON THAT UNFORGIVING FLOOR! OFFERING NOW MERCY, THE SKULL OF SHAWN STURGIS RATTLED BY THE CONCUSSIVE OFFENSE OF OGAWA!! KOMATSU OGAWA NOW RELEASING A CRY OF FEROCITY, RELISHING IN THE IMMEASURABLE AND AGONIZING PAIN SHAWN STURGIS MUST FEEL!
Rich Russillo: Ogawa now attempting to lift the carcass of Shawn Sturgis back into the ring, he needs to capitalize on the momentum he’s built up to this point! OGAWA NOPW LIFTS STURGIS ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, HIGH IN THE SKY, THIS IS NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR SHAWN STURGIS…OH NO, HE’S LOOKING FOR THE JORMUNGANDR, THAT DEVASTATING ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP WHICH PLANTS HIS OPPONENT’S FACE RIGHT ONTO HIS KNEES! OGAWA COULD END IT HERE WITH THIS SWIFT MOVE….HE DROP’S SHAWN WITH TH- NO, SHAWN COUNTERED, ROLLING THROUGH AND GETS BACK TO HIS FEET QUICKLY, OGAWA NOW COMING BACK WITH A LARIAT, BUT STURGIS DUCKS UNDER IT, SHAWN COMES BACK OFF THE SECOND ROPE WITH A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! WHAT A FEAT OF ATJELTISIC FROM SHAWN STERUGIS! THIS IS WHAT MAKES HIM ONE OF THE HOTTEST, MOST ELECTRIC YOUNG STARS ON THE VOLTAGE BRAND!
James Peters: THIS MATCH IS REALLY KICKING INTO HIGH GEAR NOW, SHAWN STURGIS NOW SCALING THE TURNBUCKLES, ASCENDING TO THE HIGH RED DISTRICT, HE’S GOT SOMETHING HIGH RISK PLANNED! HIS ATHLETICISM IS SECOND TO NONE, AND HE’S ABOUT TO SHOW US WHY! SHAWN STURGIS NOW WALKING THE TOP ROPE LIKE A TIGHTROPE, OH MY GOD, THIS BALANCE IS INCREDIBLE, NOW HE SOARS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND SENDS OGAWA FLYING OUT OF THE RING WITH A HURRICANRANA! MY GOD, WHAT A MOVE! OGAWA ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT HE’S NOT SAFE, STURGIS ALREADY REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES, ATTEMPTING TO FLY!!! STURGIS LAUNCHES HIMSELF TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE-BUT HE’S CAUGHT, OGAWA CAUGHT HIM IN MID AIR, THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID AIR WAS QUITE LITERALLY SNATCHED OUT OF MID AIR, AND OGAWA PLANTS HIM WITH A PILEDRIVER ON THE OUTSIDE!!! HOLY SHIT!!! OGAWA ATTEMPTING TO END THE CAREER OF SHAWN STURGIS!!! THIS MATCH HAS BEEN UTTER VIOLENCE UP TO THIS POINT, HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH!!
Rich Russillo: JAMES, DID YOU HEAR THE SOUND SKULL MAKE ON THE FLOOR?!?
James Peters: OH I HEARD RICH, YOU COULD HEAR HIS SKULL CRACKING UNDER THE WEIGHT OF HIS BODY, MY GOD!
Rich Russillo: HOW MUCH MORE CAN SHAWN STURGIS WITHSTAND AFTER THAT MOVE?!? Komatsu Ogawa isn’t finished, he knows that he has taken control of this match once again, and this is his chance to end it, to etch his name in the history books, and to advance to the Unique Opportunity match at Stock Value! Komatsu Ogawa rolls Shawn Sturgis back in the ring…AND HE’S ATTEMPTING TO LOCK SHAWN STURGIS IN THE SNAKE BITE, THAT NASTY SUBMISSION MOVE THAT HAS ENDED MANY MATCHES ON VOLTAGE! SHAWN IS FIGHTING, NOT ALLOWING OGAWA TO OBTAIN FULL CONTROL OF THE SUBMISSION, HOW IS SHAWN STURGIS STILL FIGHTING THIS, HOW IS HE STILL ALIVE IN THIS MATCH?!?! SHAWN WAS DRIVEN DOWN TO THE FLOOR WITH A HORRIFIC PILEDIVER AND NOW IS ON THE VERGE OF FALLING VICTIM TO THE SNAKES BITE, A MOVE THAT WOULD SURELY END THIS MATCH AND PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF SHAWN STURGIS!!
James Peters: SHAWN STURGIS IS LOSING THE WILL TO FIGHT, OGAWA IS GOING TO SEAL THE DEAL….THE SNAKE’S FANG IS IN FULL EFFECT NOW!! OGAWA HAS THE SUBMISSION IN, CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF SHAWN STURGIS, WHO’S DESPERATELY ATTEMPTING TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE BOTTOM ROPE, HIS LAST HOPE AT SURVIVING! SHAWN STURGIS IS ALMOST AT THE ROPE, C’MON SHAWN, YOU’RE ALMOST THERE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MAKE YOUR WAY ONE MORE INCH AND GRAB THAT ROPE, C’MON!! SHAWN STURGIS IS THERE, HE’S GONNA GRAB THE ROPE, HIS HARD WORK HAS PAID OFF… SHAWN GRAB- WAIT NO, OGAWA ROLLS SHAWN BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND ONCE AGAIN LOCKS IN THE SNAKES FANG, NOWHERE TO GO FOR SHAWN NOW!!! HE’S DESPERATELY TRYING TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE ROPE, CLAWING FOR EVERY INCH HE CAN GET, BUT HE MIGHT AS WELL BE WORLDS AWAY AT THIS RATE, HE’S FADING FAST!! SHAWN STURGIS IS NEARING THE ROPE AGAIN, HOW IS HE DOING THIS, HOW DOES HE CONTINUE TO FIGHT?!?! HE IS DISPLAYING THE HEART OF A TRUE WARRIOR TONIGHT, HIS PASSION FOR WRESTLING RUNS AS DEEPLY ROOTED AS HIS FAMILY ORIGINS, THAT’S WHY HE’S STILL GOING, THAT’S WHY HE’S STILL SURVIVING! SHAWN STURGIS GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE AND FORCES A BREAK OF THE SUBMISSION!!!! WHAT A WARRIOR!!!
Rich Russillo: OGAWA LOOKS AS STUNNED AS WE ARE, THE SHOCK RUNS ACROSS THE FACES OF THE VOLTAGE AUDIENCE, I DON’T THINK STURGIS EVEN KNOWS HE ESCAPED, HE’S IN AUTOPILOT MODE AT THIS POINT, MY GOD WHAT A CLASSIC! THIS BOUT WILL BE REMEMBERED AS VOLTAGE CLASSIC! THESE TWO SOLDIERS LAYING IT ALL OUT IN THE RING, LEAVING THEIR HEARTS AND SOULS ON THIS BLOOD STAINED CANVAS, AFTER ALL THAT IS ABSOLUTELY WHAT WE LOVE TO SEE, TWO COMPETITORS GIVING IT THEIR ALL, AND LAYING EVERYTHING ON THE LINE FOR THE CHANCE TO ELEVATE THEIR CAREERS!
James Peters: He can’t allow himself to be shocked, he needs to keep going, he must capitalize now, he’s got Sturgis on the ropes!
Rich Russillo: He looks to be doing just that, Komatsu Ogawa has something…VENOMOUS IN MIND, PERHAPS LOOKING FOR RAGNAROK, THAT HORRENDOUS MODIFIED PILEDRIVER!! THIS MOVE SPELLS DOOM FOR SHAWN STURGIS, HE’S FOUGHT THROUGH SO MUCH IN THIS MATCH, BUT HE WONT GET OUT OF THIS ONE, HE WON’T KICK OUT OF RAGNAROK!! OGAWA SMIRKS AT THE CROWD, RELISHING IN THE PROSPECT OF DROPPING SHAWN RIGHT ON HIS HEAD….HE’S GONNA DO IT…..OGAAAWAAAAAAAA – WAIT SHAWN ESCAPED OUT THE BACK DOOR…STURGIS WITH A BOOT TO THE MIDSECTION, AND A STUNNEERRRRRRR!!!! A STUNNER FROM SHAWN STURGIS, WHO NOW POSITIONS THE LEGS OF KOMATSU OGAWA ON THE ROPES, OH NO!!… A ROPE HUNG DDDTTTTTTT!!!! SPIKING THE SKULL OF OGAWA ODD THE CANVAS, A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE!!! STURGIS WITH A STUNNER, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY A NIGHT MARE DDT! STURGIS HAS SEEN THE LIGHT, THIS IS HIS CHANCE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE!! SHAWN IS HEADING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING FOR ONE LAST BIG MOVE….LOOOOOOKKKK NOOOOO HAAAANNNDDSSSSSSS!!!!! AOKEOREKWKKOOODFO!!!! SHAWN STURGIS WITH THE 450 SPLASH!!! HE NAILED IT, SURELY IT’S OVER!!! HE GOES IN FOR THE COVER!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HEEERRREEE ISSS YOOOUURRR WINNERRRRR!!!! SHHHHAAAWWNNNN STURRRGIIISSSS!!!
James Peters: WOW! Just wow. What a classic between these two incredible talents. The heart displayed by both men, and the grit to keep fighting through tremendous injuries were the stuff of legend. Incredible performance from both competitors, congratulations to Shawn Sturgis for a hard fought victory. We now know it will be Shawn Sturgis advancing to Shock Value’s ‘Unique Opportunity’ Match!
Rich Russillo: But who’s he going to face, James? That is still a mystery after the double count out earlier tonight!
(Sturgis celebrates his victory and Voltage fades into a brief recap of Friday Night Dynasty.)
(A recap of the most recent Dynasty airs. The World Heavyweight Championship match was set for Reckless Wiring, and the main event featured the newly crowned King of Elite, The Visual Prophet, facing off against the National Elite Champion, Kassidy Heart. Heart would submit Viz to pick up the win to cap off another amazing episode of Dynasty.)
(Voltage fades backstage and the camera focuses in on the Big Bak Bhampion, Zak Simmons, who is standing by. Simmons is dressed in street clothes and has the Bhampionship slung over his shoulder. He wears a serious look on his face and appears to be a man who has a lot to say.)
Zak Simmons: Since I got to EAW, I’ve been a pretty vocal Elitist, so I can understand why some people have been left confused by my recent silence. In the lead up to King of Elite, with all the hype surrounding the New Breed Championship match between Windgate, Sturgis, and myself, I’d be lying if I said that pressure didn’t get to me. As great as it is being a Bhampion, we all know this title don’t mean jack shit to most people. It means something to me because I fought for it and won, but I can’t expect everyone else to share that opinion. I felt a lot of pressure going into King of Elite and I wanted to prove my damn self to this company and to everyone who might not see me as a threat to the titles around here. In my quest to do so, I may have shot myself in the foot and put too much pressure on myself.
(Simmons shakes his head, clearly disappointed with how things turned out for him at King of Elite.)
Zak Simmons: I let myself down big time and I took a few days away from the ring and training to get my head back together. I’ve been around long enough to know that setbacks don’t have to define you. I can pick myself up and keep it moving, and that’s exactly what I plan to do. The New Breed Championship is still a possibility for me despite the fact Jalyn Garcia holds the contendership for it now, and Dynasty is doing their own match to see who faces Windgate at Reckless Wiring. I believe I can get myself back into contention for that belt, and I think that Sturgis and I got some unfinished business together. We got a great chance of moving forward as a tag team, and as annoying as I find that S.O.B. to be, he’s a damn fine talent and tag team partner. He’s got something good coming his way at Shock Value, and while I don’t know if I’ll be doing anything on that show, I’m here to make sure that next week on Voltage, I’m on the card.
(Simmons looks down at the Bhampionship and pats it.)
Zak Simmons: It’s been a minute since this baby’s been defended, so for next week’s Voltage, I’m issuing a challenge for anyone to step up and face me, ‘The Machine’, for the Big Bak Bhampionship.
(Simmons doesn’t have to wait long for some to answer him, because as he turns to head off, he runs right into the dangerous Komatsu Ogawa. The maniacal Japanese sensation grins, not at all let down over his loss to Sturgis earlier. In fact, his evil beady eyes go right to the Bhampionship.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Well, well, well if it isn’t the Big Bak Bastard himself, Zak Simmons! How ya doin’ man?
(Simmons glares at Ogawa, knowing damn well that Ogawa didn’t stop by to make small talk.)
Zak Simmons: Cut the bullshit, Ogawa.
(A sinister chuckle escapes from the throat of Komatsu Ogawa and he does decide to get right to the point he wants to make.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Touche. I got no interest in the piece of tin that rests across your shoulders, but what I am interested in is the challenge you just issued. You see, I came to EAW to fight and hurt people and there have only been one or two people who have really made me feel some type of way inside that ring. I’ve been begging for someone to step up and take me straight to Hell because I don’t give a fuck, Simmons. I truly don’t. I’m a sadist motherfucker with a thirst for blood, and I want someone to take me right over that edge. I want an opponent that will beat me to a pulp, because I got that kind of energy.
Zak Simmons: You definitely have some kind of energy, I’ll give you that, but in terms of you being a ‘sadistic motherfucker with a thirst for blood’? Nah. I think you’re a wannabe Lars Grier who’s real desperate for attention at the moment. Whether you want the Bhampionship or not is an irrelevant point for me, because I’m always willing to throw hands and make a mockery out of the men and women who try and step up to me.
(Komatsu bares his teeth, but Simmons doesn’t flinch. In fact, the Bhampion just looks unimpressed.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Then let us throw hands and beat the living hell out of one another. Komatsu Ogawa versus Zak Simmons in a Falls Count Anywhere match.
Zak Simmons: Not surprising that a piece of trash like you would want a Falls Count Anywhere match. You got yourself a match, though. That means we can do whatever the fuck we want, so you better be prepared for whatever I decide to throw at you.
Komatsu Ogawa: Have no fear, Simmons. I’ll be ready.
(Komatsu extends his hand but Simmons slaps it away, not interested in shaking on the deal. He got his challenge for next week, got himself on the card, and a Falls Count Anywhere match against Komatsu Ogawa looks to be an interesting opportunity for either man to pick up a big win. Simmons heads out, leaving Komatsu to ponder whether or not accepting the Bhampion’s challenge was a good idea.)
Komatsu Ogawa: This is gunna be real fun.
(‘The Serpent King’ laughs and the scene backstage fades out.)
(Voltage fades back into nothing but pure static.)
Stop. Click. Clitch. Clatch. Zbzzt.
Levi: Hello, dear viewers, and welcome to Buckeye25, Ohio’s finest news network! As always, I’m your host, Levi. It feels good to be back stateside, and I want to start off this special edition of Buckeye25 by giving a shout out to the beautiful city of Toledo. Don’t fret. We will be home soon and back in the cozy confines of our Ohio Headquarters. Tonight on this special edition of Buckeye25, we want to talk about the crime that was committed against Carion back at King of Elite. You see, He is the one who’s radar you don’t want to be on, and Camille Jane Ava firmly planted herself front and center when she saved her useless sister, Consuela Rose, from His wrath. Carion had the 24/7 Contract all but in his possession, but Camille would stick her nose where it didn’t belong and take something from Him that He wanted. We consider this only a temporary setback as well as a minor inconvenience, but you know what they say. Nothing worth having is ever easy, and we did not expect things to come easy around here. One thing we might have overlooked is the loyalty all the Avas have to one another. We accept responsibility for that and going forward, our eyes will be open at all times.
When warnings fall on deaf ears, we have to resort to what is known as ‘Pax Saeva’, which is to achieve peace through cruelty. The peaceful world we seek is one that is united together under our banner, practicing our teachings, and being kinder, more gentle human beings. It is a vision that will come to fruition through force, and it seems like at King of Elite, we were all reminded that once again the road we project to take is never the final one we need to travel down in order to reach our final destination. While Consuela Rose escaped with her contract, it came at a hefty price. She was left broken and dismantled, and a shell of a wrestler. Her foul sister, Camille, placed herself squarely in our path and this goes far beyond the prize she now holds. The Interwire Championship is something He’s looked at, but for now He’s decided that the ultimate destruction of Ms. Extreme and Terry Chambers is of the utmost importance.
Titles and contracts have become secondary, because we believe that the first step in achieving what we want can be obtained through making an example out of certain people.
Terry Chambers can say that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but we all know better than that. There have been whispers that backstage at King of Elite isn’t the first time he’s been seen checking on the welfare of sweet Consuela Rose, and once thing He always seems to zero in on is the enemy’s weak spot. Terry Chambers never had to be a factor in this thing between Him and the Avas, but it seems like he will ultimately be a player in our little game thanks to his fondness for Consuela that extends far beyond the mutual respect they both claim it is. Terry is a brute, a monster in his own right, and when he stares at Consuela it’s not different than look Lars gives Asmo, his own healer and one of our own. Terry is a broken soul and Consuela is nurturer, and they were placed in each other’s path for a reason. That’s why Terry finds himself in the middle of this now, and why ultimately he will fall at the hands of The Corvus along with the self-proclaimed ‘Red Queen.’ What Camille and Terry need to realize, and something Consuela can warn them about, is that The Corvus always plays to win. We have no problem beating our message into the minds and bodies of the naysayers. We will punish those who turn their backs and torture those who dare to stand up and fight against the good fight. Camille Jane Ava and Terry Chambers will find themselves on the receiving end of beating they both have coming and He has instructed us to not show any mercy.
We all believe that Camille’s ego will allow her to continue to defy us and ignore our warnings. We also know that Terry is a proud man and a father, and he will see this as an opportunity to teach Landon, Zachary, and Savannah how important it is to stand up to what he deems as bullying. It’s that kind of mindset, that victim’s mentality, that forces people to lash out and act out of character. That’s why He knows and why we feel that Lars needs to be front and center of this company. Some of the biggest offenders walk these very halls and place themselves on a pedestal they don’t belong on. Change is coming.
He won’t be stopped.
The Corvus won’t back down.
Lars Grier will rise.
This is just a verbal warning, and trust me, there is much more to come. Camille Jane Ava and Terry Chambers should watch their backs going forward. That is all for now, dear viewers. Thank you for tuning into this Special Edition of Bu-
Stop. Click. Clitch. Clatch. Zbzzzt.
Once they’re gone. It will be better.

(Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Coca-Cola.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOW CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Breakin’ Outta H*ll’ by Airbourne hits to a pretty mixed reaction as Shortfuse PAKA makes his way out to the stage. He has a look on his face that can easily be mistaken for angry, but in reality PAKA is just very focused, knowing the task ahead of him as he walks down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… Residing in the Arm Bar, France.. Weighing in at 225 pounds… SHORTFUUUUUSE PPAAAAKKAAAA!!!
James Peters: Shortfuse PAKA is coming off of, well what I can only imagine was an embarrassing loss to Lance Blackfyre in a two on one handicap match. I don’t know if this feud he’s been having with Korey Gaines has thrown him off, but hopefully he can get back on track tonight.
Rich Russillo: Well, if he wants to get back on track, he’s gonna need to be at his best tonight. He’s going up against Terry Chambers, and after King of Elite, I can imagine Terry isn’t about to let PAKA win very easily. If Shortfuse wants to win here, he’s gonna have to earn that win.
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons hits and the crowd explodes into cheers as Terry Chambers makes his way out next. He too looks focused, definitely determined to win this match after unfortunately coming up short at King of Elite. It’s clear he wants to get back on track, and make sure not to go on yet another loss.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… Residing in Los Angeles, California… Weighing in at 287 pounds… THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE, TEEEERRRRYYYYYY CCHHAAAAAMMBBEERRRRSSS!!! James Peters: You’re absolutely right Rich, and if we go back and see why Terry lost at King of Elite, the story tells itself. Terry cost himself the match accidentally throwing Andrea Valentine right into the final buzzer. His own mistake cost him the EAW Championship, and now he has to work his way back up the ranks again. I haven’t even begun to speak on what happened with the Corvus yet, but do I really need to?
Rich Russillo: Yeah, someone like Terry, I don’t think he’s gonna let his interaction with the Corvus at King of Elite stick with him tonight. He’s gonna want to win for sure, and if PAKA doesn’t bring his A-game, he’s definitely going to do just that-
(Suddenly, ‘Thunderstruck’ by AC/DC hits and the crowd continues cheering, with some crowd members looking shocked. Korey Gaines then makes his way to the announcers booth with his own commentary equipment, as he takes a seat with the two commentators.)
Korey Gaines: ‘Sup guys? Mind if I stick around?
James Peters: Korey Gaines, I’ll admit I didn’t expect you to come out here, but feel free to stay.
Rich Russillo: PAKA doesn’t look too happy to see you though.
Korey Gaines: Good.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match between two huge competitors is now underway! Surprisingly both men lock up, and I must ask, what are your thoughts on this match Korey?
Korey Gaines: Well, I think it’s pretty obvious I’m rooting for Terry here. I faced him a few months back for the Interwire Championship. I know he has what it takes to beat Shortfuse PAKA.
James Peters: Both men struggling for control, and now it looks like Terry is managing to power PAKA to the corner! Terry is holding him there, but he finally lets go as the referee gets to a count of four!
Rich Russillo: Terry immediately grabs PAKA though and irish whips him to the opposite corner, and now he charges in- BUT HE’S MET WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE BY PAKA! PAKA now running the ropes as Terry is stunned- BUT TERRY HITS A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! PAKA is able to get back to his feet relatively quickly as he backs into the ropes, but Terry is charging in- NO! TERRY ATTEMPTED TO HIS A BOOT TO THE FACE WHILE PAKA WAS ON THE ROPES, BUT PAKA MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! PAKA RUNNING THE ROPES WHILE TERRY HAS HIS FOOT STUCK ON THE TOP ROPE, AND THIS TIME THERE’S A RUNNING BIG BOOT BY PAKA!
James Peters: Terry is down, and now there’s the first cover of the match!
Korey Gaines: Terry’s gonna kick out.
Korey Gaines: See? That wasn’t gonna keep him down.
James Peters: Well, you were right about that one as Terry did manage to kick out even before the two count, and even now he’s starting to get back to his feet. PAKA is trying to capitalize on his current offense as he grabs Terry from behind attempting a huge german suplex- but Terry is able to hit an elbow to the jaw! Terry now grabbing PAKA in a front headlock in return, AND THERE’S A SNAP SUPLEX!
Korey Gaines: Yes! Come on Terry!
James Peters: Terry doesn’t look like he’s finished either! He still has a hold on PAKA as he gets back to his feet, AND THERE’S A SECOND SUPLEX! Terry still hasn’t let go though! Terry getting up one last time, AND THERE’S A THIRD SUPLEX! TERRY JUST HIT PAKA WITH THREE SNAP SUPLEXES IN A ROW, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: PAKA kicks out this time! Terry looks a bit surprised, but he’s going right back on the offensive as he drags PAKA back up and sends him to the corner! Terry charging in, RANDOM ACT OF- NO! PAKA MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, AND THERE’S A HUGE KNIFE EDGE CHOP AS TERRY FINDS HIMSELF TRAPPED IN THE CORNER! PAKA RUNNING TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN, AND THERE’S A CORNER LARIAT BY PAKA! TERRY DROPS DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION AND PAKA RUNS BACK TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN ONCE MORE! RUNNING HIP ATTACK!! WHAT A BURST OF ENERGY BY PAKA!
James Peters: PAKA now dragging Terry up, and it looks like he’s trying to lift him up for a powerbomb- BUT TERRY MANAGES TO STOP THAT WITH A HUGE BACK BODY DROP! PAKA is rolling out of the ring after that-
Korey Gaines: Like the coward he is.
James Peters:… Unfortunately for PAKA, I don’t think Terry is finished just yet! Terry running the ropes as PAKA is back to his feet, SUICIDE DIVE!! TO THIS DAY I STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND, HOW IS SOMEONE THE SIZE OF TERRY ABLE TO PULL THAT OFF!?
Korey Gaines: That’s just how good he is. Don’t underestimate Terry Chambers.
Rich Russillo: You’re right about that one.
James Peters: We haven’t heard a whole lot out of PAKA this week so I’m not entirely sure what his mindset going into this one is, but you’ve got to imagine that at this point he knows that it’ll take a lot to take down Terry Chambers! Terry rolling PAKA back into the ring before running the ropes! PAKA just barely getting to his feet, and- KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT!!! PAKA JUST HIT TERRY WITH THAT HUGE KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT, THAT ONE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE! PAKA IS BARELY MANAGING TO EVEN STAND, BUT NOW THERE’S THE COVER!
ONE! TWO!! THR-
Korey Gaines: Terry kicked out, as expected.
Rich Russillo: Well, I’ll admit I didn’t really expect Terry to kick out of that one, especially being caught by surprise like that.
Korey Gaines: It’s Terry Chambers, of course he was gonna kick out. Didn’t you see his match with Andrea at King of Elite?
Rich Russillo: Well, I can’t argue there. PAKA now dragging Terry to his feet, and at this point I think PAKA only has one move left to deliver! PAKA NOW LIFTING TERRY ON HIS SHOULDERS, AND HE CHARGES TO THE CORNER! COMPACT DRIVER!
James Peters: NO! IT DOESN’T CONNECT! TERRY MANAGED TO SLIP BEHIND PAKA AND PULL HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! TERRY WITH A HUGE SNAKE EYES!! TERRY OFF THE ROPES AS PAKA IS STILL ON HIS FEET- BUT PAKA MANAGES TO PULL DOWN THE TOP ROPE! TERRY JUST WENT RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE, TUMBLING OUT TO RINGSIDE! TERRY MIGHT’VE SAVED HIS CHANCES AVOIDING THE COMPACT DRIVER, BUT RIGHT NOW HE’S NOT IN MUCH BETTER CONDITION!
Korey Gaines: I’ll admit, I didn’t expect that.
Rich Russillo: Terry looks like he’s a bit hurt from that fall, but he’s still finding his way back up to his feet! PAKA running the ropes now, and not long ago we saw a similar sight with Terry!
Shortfuse PAKA (Off Mic): HEY MUERDE!
Rich Russillo: WRECKING BALL PLANCHA!!! PAKA JUST TOOK OUT BOTH HIMSELF AND TERRY WITH A HUGE SUICIDE DIVE HEADBUTT! PAKA IS GIVING THIS MATCH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT, AND RIGHT NOW HE SEEMS TO BE DOING JUST FINE AGAINST THE FORMER INTERWIRE CHAMPION! Terry is in a bit of trouble here, but I’ll admit, so is PAKA! It looks like both men are in pain after that headbutt!
James Peters: The referee starting his count now, and it looks like PAKA is getting back to his feet at a count of one! PAKA pulling Terry up, AND HE RAMS HIM INTO THE RING APRON! The referee reaches a count of two, AND PAKA SENDS TERRY INTO THE BARRICADE! TERRY IS HURTING, AND NOW PAKA HAS HIS SIGHTS SET ON THE STEEL STEPS!
Korey Gaines: Terry needs to get his head back in the game.
James Peters: PAKA SENDING TERRY INTO THE- NO! TERRY TURNS IT AROUND AND SENDS PAKA CRASHING INTO THE STEPS!
Rich Russillo: TERRY ROLLING PAKA BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE FOLLOWING BEHIND, AND NOW HE LIFTS PAKA UP! TERRY CHARGING TO THE CORNER, TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB!! TERRY NOT FINISHED YET AS HE IRISH WHIPS PAKA TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN! RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!!! WHAT A COMBINATION BY TERRY!! THAT HAS TO BE IT! TERRY NOW GOING FOR THE COVER!
Korey Gaines: That has to be it! There’s no way PAKA is kicking out of that!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!-
Rich Russillo: HE DID IT!! PAKA JUST BARELY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!
Korey Gaines: I stand corrected. Maybe PAKA has more fight in him than I thought.
James Peters: That sure looks to be the case, what an impressive kick out by PAKA! Terry looks a bit surprised, but you can tell he doesn’t mind too much, I’m sure he knew facing someone like PAKA wouldn’t be a landslide. Terry now picking PAKA up, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S SETTING UP FOR THE T-5, BUT LOOK! PAKA STILL ISN’T FINISHED JUST YET AS HE BEGINS DRIVING HIS ELBOW INTO TERRY’S JAW! PAKA REPEATEDLY ELBOWING TERRY, AND FINALLY TERRY DROPS PAKA! PAKA WITH A FOREARM SMASH!
Rich Russillo: THAT FOREARM SMASH CAUSED TERRY TO STUMBLE A BIT! PAKA GOING FOR A SECOND, BUT TERRY CATCHES PAKA’S ARM BEFORE HITTING A FOREARM SMASH OF HIS OWN! TERRY NOW GOING FOR ANOTHER BUT THIS TIME IT’S PAKA THAT STOPS HIM, BEFORE HITTING ANOTHER KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT! THAT HEADBUTT CAUSED TERRY TO STUMBLE TO THE ROPES, BUT TERRY REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES WITH A RUNNING LARIAT! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN NOW, WHAT AN EXCHANGE THAT WAS!
James Peters: Both men using the ropes to pull each other to their feet, AND PAKA STRIKES FIRST WITH A KNEE LIFT TO THE MIDSECTION! You can see how much these two have taken out of each other as they’re taking much longer to strike than before- BUT THERE’S TERRY WITH A RIGHT HAND! These two are doing whatever it takes to win this match! PAKA WITH A PALM STRIKE! TERRY LOOKS ROCKED FROM THAT PALM STRIKE AS PAKA NOW RUNS THE ROPES- BUT THIS TIME TERRY HITS PAKA WITH A HEADBUTT BEFORE GRABBING HIM! OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY BY THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE!
Korey Gaines: This match is actually getting pretty interesting! Still rootin’ for Terry here, but it doesn’t hurt watching two big guys battle it out.
Rich Russillo: PAKA is pulling himself up with the turnbuckles, BUT NOW TERRY IS RUNNING IN! TERRY ATTEMPTED THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE- BUT LOOK! PAKA JUST GRABBED TERRY BY THE NECK, AND HE HAS HIM IN A SLEEPERHOLD! PAKA ABLE TO STAY ON THE BACK OF THE CLEARLY BIGGER MAN, AND RIGHT NOW TERRY IS IN TROUBLE AS HE JUST STUMBLED RIGHT OUT OF THE CORNER AWAY FROM THE ROPES! PAKA IS LOOKING TO PUT TERRY TO SLEEP, IN A SIMILAR WAY TO HOW TERRY HAS DONE TO OTHERS IN THE PAST! IS TERRY GONNA TAP OUT!?
Korey Gaines: I know first hand just how difficult that’d be.
James Peters: AND IT LOOKS LIKE PAKA IS GONNA HAVE TO FIND OUT HIMSELF NOW, AS TERRY RUNS BACKWARDS INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! PAKA WAS JUST RAMMED INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT TERRY ISN’T FINISHED THERE! TERRY IMMEDIATELY PICKING PAKA UP WHILE PAKA IS STILL HURT, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA FINISH THIS ONE AS HE HAS HIM IN POSITION! T-5!!!! THE T-5 CONNECTS!!!
Korey Gaines: That’s it! This one’s over.
James Peters: YOU JUST MIGHT BE RIGHT ABOUT THAT ONE KOREY! TERRY NOW GOING FOR THE COVER, CAN PAKA KICK OUT!?
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE, TEEEEERRRYYYYYY CCCHHHAAAAMMMBBEERRRRSS!!!!
James Peters: NOPE, THAT’S IT! Just like you said Korey, this match is done with! PAKA put up a pretty good fight, but it just wasn’t enough! It was clear Terry wanted this match more, and in the end he got it! What a great way to come back after a disappointing loss at King of Elite!
Rich Russillo: I got exactly what I expected from this match. When you’ve got two big men like the Barbaric Carnivore and the Wrecking Ball, you’ve got to expect a huge clash. These two both brought the fight, and in the end it’s Terry Chambers walking home with the win. Congratulations!
Korey Gaines: Yep, good job Terry.
(‘Natural’ hits as Terry Chambers gets back to his feet and has his hands raised by the referee. He takes time to celebrate his win before he finally exits the ring. Near the same timeframe, Korey Gaines gets out of his chair, making his way into the ring while PAKA slowly gets back to his feet.)
James Peters: Korey, what’re you- OH MY GOD!
Rich Russillo: KOREY IS ATTACKING PAKA! PAKA IS NOW TRAPPED IN THE CORNER, AS KOREY IS JUST UNLOADING! KOREY IS JUST TAKING OUT ALL HIS AGGRESSIONS ON PAKA! KOREY ISN’T STOPPING AS HE’S JUST HITTING PAKA WITH THESE PUNCHES, PAKA MIGHT BE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE AS HE JUST CAME OFF OF A GREAT MATCH WITH TERRY CHAMBERS! PAKA IS NEXT TO DEFENSELESS HERE!
James Peters: NO HE ISN’T! PAKA WITH A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE! THAT FOREARM CAUSED KOREY TO STUMBLE OUT THE CORNER, AND NOW THE TWO ARE GOING BACK AFTER EACH OTHER! KOREY THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS WHILE PAKA RETALIATED WITH PALM STRIKES AND FOREARMS, SOMEONE NEEDS TO STOP THESE TWO! THEY’RE JUST GOING BACK AND FORTH RELENTLESSLY! THESE TWO HAVE CLEARLY HATED ONE ANOTHER FOR WHAT FEELS LIKE FOREVER AT THIS POINT DESPITE ONLY WEEKS HAVE PASSED, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE NO LONGER WILLING TO WAIT FOR A MATCH!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, LOOK WHO IT IS! FINALLY SOMEONE’S HERE TO STOP THIS!
(As the two brawl, Captain Charisma makes his way to the stage, with a microphone in his hand and security by his side. Both Gaines and PAKA soon realize this, as they reluctantly stop their clearly heated brawl.)
Captain Charisma: PAKA, Gaines, you two come to my office, right now. I won’t say it a second time.
(Captain Charisma walks backstage as Korey Gaines and PAKA both look at each other, before finally giving in and walking to the back as well, as Voltage fades to a recap for Showdown.)
(A recap for last night’s episode of Showdown airs, showcasing the PURE Championship match between Harlow Reichert and Lucas Johnson. Harlow would retain the title once again and looks ahead to Under Siege where she will face five other competitors in a PURE Championship Gauntlet :lupe:)
(Voltage fades back in and cuts to the backstage area. This time Molly Waters is seen standing by. She’s joined by the number one contender to the New Breed Championship, Jalyn Garcia.)
Molly Waters: Ladies and gentlemen, last weekend at Clash of Kingdoms, Jalyn Garcia captured what’s perhaps his biggest win to date. He managed to knock off Dynasty’s Nathan von Liebert and Showdown’s Shane Gates in a triple threat match to determine the number one contender to the EAW New Breed Championship. Joining me right now is Jalyn Garcia.
(Jalyn rakes a hand through his hair and nods his head to acknowledge the greeting.)
Molly Waters: Jalyn, how does it feel knowing that you have your first championship shot coming up?
Jalyn Garcia: There was never a doubt that I would find myself in this position, it was just a matter of when I could get my head together and get it done. I’ve struggled with some things since signing on the dotted line. There is a fine line between whether or not life is worth living or if it’s all irrelevant. You know that, right? It’s the biggest battle that I face, yet I find a strange sense of comfort in it. I can allow myself to channel whatever fear I feel in the moment and throw caution to the wind. I can live free and recklessly, and do whatever I need to do inside the ring that will yield the results I want. We’re all mortal and as terrifying and as overwhelming as this approach to life and to my career is, the results of it can be rewarding. I find myself on the cusp of capturing the same championship that Jamie O’Hara won to kick start his career here in EAW, and I plan on following in his footsteps. The New Breed Championship means more than anyone could imagine. It was elevated to the highest of highs by my teacher, and I seized the opportunity that Captain Charisma granted me last weekend at Clash of Kingdoms. He granted me a second shot at redeeming myself and I plan to follow that up by winning the New Breed Championship.
(Molly nods her head at Jalyn’s words.)
Molly Waters: Let’s talk about when that championship shot might happen. Is it true that you turned down an opportunity to compete at Reckless Wiring against the champion, Justin Windgate?
(Jalyn rolls his eyes.)
Jalyn Garcia: I didn’t turn down any match, so don’t get it twisted. I simply said that I wanted to win my first championship on one of the biggest stages in professional wrestling and that request was granted. I have been accused of lacking ambition in the past, and that’s a stigma I guess I want to erase hence me wanting to compete at something bigger than a brand exclusive free-per-view. Gywn Gilfried and Angel de Plata Jr. can thank me later for giving one of them a chance to have a match at Reckless Wiring against Justin Windgate, and whoever wins will have the opportunity to defend the championship against me.
(It dawns on Molly what Jalyn is hinting at and she gives him a look.)
Molly Waters: So you’re going on record and saying that the winner of the New Breed Championship match at Reckless Wiring will be facing you with the championship on the line at Grand Rampage.
Jalyn Garcia: I guess I am because that’s exactly what’s happening. I’m taking control of my career and putting myself on the big stage, and at Grand Rampage I guarantee that I will do everything in my power to win my first ever championship.
Molly Waters: Wow. Somehow with Shock Value still two weeks away, Voltage has managed to announce two matches for April’s free-per-view, Grand Rampage! The members of the EAW Universe have already coined you ‘The New Breed Wildheart.’
(The sound of someone clearing their throat behind Jalyn grabs the Wildheart’s attention, as well as Molly’s. The camera shot widens to show a brand new member of the Voltage roster standing there. This man smiles brightly and extends his hand towards Jalyn. Jalyn raises an eyebrow.)
Jalyn Garcia: ???
Unknown Elitist: Hi. Colby Sol.
Jalyn Garcia: Not to be a dick or anything, but is that supposed to mean something to me?
Colby Sol: Not as of yet, but I definitely plan to make a splash here in EAW.
(Jalyn doesn’t really seem to be in the mood to converse with the newcomer, but Colby doesn’t seem affected by the lack of enthusiasm. All he does is keep pressing on.)
Colby Sol: That starts next week because earlier tonight when I first got here, I met with Captain Charisma and let him know I wanted to get started right away. He seemed to appreciate my attitude and made a match for next week’s episode of Voltage.
Jalyn Garcia: Alright. What does this have to do with me?
(That prompts Colby to grin because it actually has everything to do with Jalyn Garcia.)
Colby Sol: Well, my friend, you’re my opponent next week.
(Jalyn looks at Colby, determines he’s not joking, and lets out a sigh.)
Jalyn Garcia: I see. I’m going to make the assumption that’s not really going to work out for you. But you’re welcome to put up a fight.
(Colby shakes his head a bit and laughs to himself.)
Colby Sol: Overconfident and overlooking me, but I’m not surprised. I know you’ll flex because you won a match last weekend, and basically just crowned yourself New Breed Champ when your match for that belt won’t even happen until April, but next weekend on Voltage your ego is going to get a massive reality check. I might be new, and I’m sure you’ll tell me at some point next week that you don’t really know who I am and that you’ll beat me with relative ease, but I’ll make sure the match doesn’t end like you think it will. I look forward to the challenge you’ll present, Jalyn.
(Colby tips his proverbial cap towards Jalyn and takes his exit, having gotten the last word. Jalyn just looks a little perplexed by the whole situation and looks at Molly. She just shrugs her shoulders, because she’s not really sure what just happened either.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside.)
(Bella steps forward to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following is a tag team match, and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first..
(‘Land of the Innocent’ by Feathers hits and the crowd begins cheering heavily as Sarah Price walks out to the stage. She has a smile on her face as she stops at the top of the ramp, and waits as ‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake’ follows. The crowd continues cheering as Sierra Bradford walks out to the stage to join Sarah, and the two finally begin to walk down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring, at a combined weight of 262 pounds… SASS: SIERRA AND SARAH, SUUUPERGIRLS!!!
James Peters: These two both had pretty impressive showings two weeks ago at Fight Grid and King of Elite respectively, of course Sarah Price did win her match, but unfortunately Sierra Bradford did fail to defeat Darcy May Morgan for the Specialists title. Tonight they look to get fully back on track, although I think this is a huge challenge in front of them.
Rich Russillo: Well, they’re undefeated as a tag team. They’ve only had one match as a tag team, but still. As said earlier in the week, Rome wasn’t built in a day, but if these two can defeat Fire and Ice in only their second tag team match, it might as well have been! You’re right, this is a huge challenge, but you can tell these two believe in themselves.
(‘Dark Horses’ by Switchfoot then begins to play, and the cheering doesn’t stop as red and blue spotlights appear on the stage. Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts then make their way out to the stage, standing in their respective spotlights as they take a second to observe the competition in front of them. After a few moments, the two make their way down to the ring, ready for their match.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… At a combined weight of 377 pounds.. THE TEAM OF REX MCALLISTER AND THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION RAVEN ROBERTS… FIIIIIRREEEE AND IIIIIIICE!!!
James Peters: the Universal Women’s Champion, a former two time World Champion, and quite possibly the next tag team Champions. Raven Roberts and Rex McAllister, their careers have been storied enough, but soon they’re looking to add yet another pair of titles to their resumes. Before they deal with the Champions though, they face SASS.
Rich Russillo: Not many people may be expecting SASS to win this match, but of course we’ve seen crazier things happen here. Besides, Rex and Raven have both been in their position before. However, SASS isn’t facing The Rex and Raven of old. They’re facing a team of a combined three World Championships. This should be a good one, let’s start this match.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And now this one is underway! Sarah Price is starting this one off with Rex McAllister, and if anyone recalls, these two did face off in the ring once before, so this should be an interesting way to kick things off. The two are quick to lock up, but it’s Rex easily taking control as he manages to put Sarah in a headlock! Sarah looks like she’s in trouble- but she manages to slip out the headlock and pull Rex into a school girl roll up! Rex immediately kicks out, but Sarah grabs Rex and puts him in a headlock of her own as soon as he gets up!
Rich Russillo: Rex now powering Sarah to the ropes, forcing Sarah to release the headlock as she bounces off! Rex waiting as Sarah bounces off the ropes- BUT SARAH SLIDES UNDER REX BEFORE JUMPING UP AND CONNECTING WITH AN ENZUIGIRI! Rex is stunned and now Sarah runs the ropes- but she’s caught by surprise as Rex catches her with a shoulder block! Rex now running the ropes as he hops over Sarah to bounce off the opposite pair of ropes- AND SARAH ATTEMPTS A DROPKICK BUT REX MOVES OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE GRABBING SARAH INTO A GROUNDED HEADLOCK! Outwrestling Rex McAllister is something not many people are capable of and if Sarah hasn’t found that out last time they faced off, she sure must be realizing that now!
James Peters: Sarah is stuck in that grounded headlock- but it doesn’t take long for Rex to instead transition into a rear chinlock! Nonetheless, Sarah is still in trouble and she needs to find a way out of this hold! It sounds like Sierra is trying to encourage Sarah here, but I don’t know if simple words of encouragement are gonna be enough. The crowd now beginning to clap in support of Sarah, and guys I think we’ve seen this before! Sarah is starting to get up onto her knees, and now she’s slowly getting back to her feet! The crowd still clapping- AND SARAH RUNS BACK INTO HER OWN CORNER, RAMMING REX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
Rich Russillo: Sierra tagging herself in now, and there’s a snapmare to Rex by Sarah! Sierra’s now running the ropes, AND THERE’S A PENALTY KICK! What a tag team move by these two! The cover now!
James Peters: Rex quickly manages to get the shoulder up! Sierra and Sarah haven’t been an official tag team for very long and this is only their second actual tag team match together, but they’re already being put to the test as they face off against a team comprised of the current Universal Women’s Champion, and a former two time World Champion. Sierra and Sarah seem to be doing just fine though, as Sierra irish whips Rex into the corner! Sierra now charging in, AND THERE’S A HUGE FOREARM SMASH! REX STUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AS SIERRA RUNS THE ROPES- WOW! REX JUST TURNED SIERRA INSIDE OUT WITH THAT CLOTHESLINE!
Rich Russillo: Rex dragging Sierra towards his own corner, and now there’s the tag to Raven! Sierra is trying to get to her feet using the ropes- BUT THE FIRST THING RAVEN DOES IS DROP SIERRA WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! Sierra managed to roll up to her knees as she holds her neck in pain, and now Raven runs the ropes! RUNNING KNEE- NO! SIERRA DUCKS IT BEFORE ROLLING BACK TO HER FEET! SIERRA CHARGING IN AT RAVEN- BUT RAVEN HITS A HUGE HIP TOSS BEFORE FOLLOWING IT UP WITH A BACK HANDSPRING, AND NOW THERE’S A DROPKICK TO THE FACE!
James Peters: Sierra crawling into the corner as she tries to get back to her feet, but now Raven charges in! RAVEN ATTEMPTED A CLOTHESLINE WHILE SIERRA WAS IN THE CORNER BUT SIERRA DUCKS IT! PELE KICK BY SIERRA! Sierra now with the tag to Sarah and it looks like these two are preparing for another tag team move! Sarah charging in, AND THERE’S A FOREARM SMASH TO RAVEN! SARAH NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP TOWARDS SIERRA, AND SIERRA DROPS RAVEN WITH A BICYCLE KICK! These two are determined to prove just how good they are against a more experienced team such as Fire and Ice, and so far they’re doing a great job after yet another tag team move!
Rich Russillo: Raven doesn’t stay down for long as she finds herself back on her feet, holding her jaw as she tries to make her way towards Rex. Sarah trying to grab her from behind with that ripcord set up, PLOT TWIS- NO! RAVEN CONNECTS WITH A BOOT TO SARAH’S FACE BEFORE SHE COULD CONNECT WITH THAT KNEE STRIKE! SARAH WAS STUNNED BY THAT BOOT, BUT SHE SHRUGS IT OFF BEFORE CHARGING IN! SARAH LOOKING FOR THAT BICYCLE KNEE, BUT RAVEN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! SARAH REALIZES AS SHE TURNS TOWARDS RAVEN- AND SHE’S MET WITH A CODEBREAKER!
James Peters: Raven grabs Sarah by the arm before pulling her towards Fire and Ice’s corner, and now there’s the tag to Rex! Sarah is in the corner as both Rex and Raven back up! Rex irish whipping Raven towards Sarah, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK, BUT FIRE AND ICE ISN’T FINISHED THERE! REX FOLLOWS RIGHT BEHIND AND THERE’S ANOTHER AMAZING CLOTHESLINE TO SARAH! SASS has done great so far, but they’re not Fire and Ice! Rex is going for the cover now, and that may actually be it!
Rich Russillo: SARAH MANAGES TO KICK OUT! There’s been a lot of quick tags in this match so far, and in a match like this it only makes sense to me. SASS wants nothing more than to prove themselves as a real tag team, meanwhile Fire and Ice know that they’re on a level above them. Rex pulling Sarah right off the ground, and there’s a German Su- WAIT, NO! SARAH LANDS ON HER FEET, AND SHE RIPCORDS REX AROUND! PLOT TWIST!!! THAT WAS OUT OF NOWHERE, SARAH IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS, BUT SHE’S QUICK TO RUSH TO THE COVER AND FINISH THIS, IS THIS ONE OVER!?
ONE! TWO!! THR-
James Peters: NO! REX MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THREE!! Sarah nearly scored possibly the biggest win in her career for both herself and Sierra Bradford with that amazing plot twist knee strike! Sarah needs to find a way to capitalize though, she can’t let this match escape her hands! Sarah climbing up to the top rope, and I think she’s looking to do just that! This match just might be over and done with! HAPPY ENDING!
Rich Russillo: NO, IT DOESN’T CONNECT! REX JUST BARELY MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW HE GRABS SARAH’S LEGS! BOSTON CRAB BY REX!! WHERE ON EARTH DID HE GET THAT BOOST OF ENERGY FROM!? SOMEHOW REX MANAGED TO AVOID THAT MOONSAULT, AND NOW HE HAD SARAH IN A BOSTON CRAB! SIERRA HAS HER ARM OUT TRYING TO GET SARAH TO TAG HER IN, BUT SARAH IS WAY TOO FAR FROM HER! AT THIS POINT SARAH MIGHT HAVE TO TAP OUT, AND I’M SURE THAT’S THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF WHAT SASS WANTS TO HAPPEN!
James Peters: SARAH IS TRYING TO REACH OUT TO ONE OF REX’S LEGS, AND I CAN’T EXACTLY IMAGINE THE REASON WHY, BUT AT THIS POINT I’M ASSUMING SHE’S JUST DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN IN ORDER TO ESCAPE THE SUBMISSION! SARAH MANAGED TO GRAB REX’S LEG, AND- WAIT! SARAH PULLED THE LEG OUT FROM UNDER REX, AND NOW SHE HAS HIM IN AN ANKLE LOCK! SARAH MANAGED TO ESCAPE THE BOSTON CRAB AND NOW IT’S REX THAT’S IN TROUBLE AS HE’S STUCK INSIDE AN ANKLE LOCK! IS SARAH GONNA MAKE REX TAP OUT!? WHAT A SHOCK THIS MAY BE!
Rich Russillo: NO, REX WITH AN ENZUIGIRI TO ESCAPE THE ANKLE LOCK! SARAH DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE AND NOW REX GRABS HER FROM BEHIND, GERMAN SUPLEX!! REX DOESN’T LET GO OF HER THOUGH, INSTEAD HE PICKS HER UP! SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX BY REX!!! REX DRAGGING SARAH UP ONCE MORE, AND THERE’S A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX IN A ROW!! SARAH IS OUT OF IT, AND NOW THERE’S THE TAG TO RAVEN, SASS MAY BE IN TROUBLE HERE, I THINK THIS MATCH IS COMING TO A CLOSE UNLESS SARAH CAN SOMEHOW MAKE IT OVER TO SIERRA!
James Peters: REX AND RAVEN NOW STANDING IN OPPOSITE CORNERS OF THE RING WHILE SARAH IS JUST BARELY GETTING UP, AND THINGS ARE LOOKING BAD! FIRE AND ICE NOW, KICKING IT TO HIGH GEA- WAIT, NO!! SARAH JUMPED OUT THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND CAUSING RAVEN AND REX TO BOTH KICK EACH OTHER! SARAH NOW JUMPS OUT TO HER CORNER, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO SIERRA!! SIERRA IS IN, AND THE FIRST THING SHE DOES IS CHARGE TOWARDS THE ROPES AS REX GETS UP! BULLSEYE!! THE SPRINGBOARD KICK CONNECTS, AND IT TAKES REX RIGHT OUT OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN NOW TRYING TO GRAB RAVEN FROM BEHIND, BUT SIERRA ELBOWS HER IN THE JAW! THUNDERBIRD!!! RAVEN IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS, AND NOW SIERRA RUNS THE ROPES!! SEEKING MISSILE!!! THE SEEKING MISSILE CONNECTS!! SIERRA IS PUMPED UP, BUT SHE’S NOT GOING FOR THE COVER! INSTEAD, SHE’S GOING FOR THE BLOODRUSH!!! THE BLOODRUSH, THAT CROSSFACE IS LOCKED IN AND RAVEN HAS NOWHERE TO GO! SIERRA JUST TOOK OUT REX MCALLISTER, SO EVEN IF HE WANTED TO HE COULDN’T HELP HER! SARAH TRIED MAKING REX MCALLISTER TAP OUT AND IT DIDN’T WORK, BUT COULD SIERRA MAKE THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION TAP OUT!?
James Peters: SIERRA LOST HER MATCH FOR THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST DARCY MAY MORGAN AT KING OF ELITE, BUT IF SIERRA CAN MAKE THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION TAP OUT HERE I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW BIG THAT’D BE FOR HER! RAVEN ISN’T GIVING UP THAT EASILY THOUGH, SHE’S TRYING TO PRY OFF SIERRA’S HANDS, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S SUCCEEDING! RAVEN WAS JUST HIT WITH TWO OF THE BEST MOVES SIERRA HAS BEFORE BEING TRAPPED IN THIS SUBMISSION, I DOUBT SIERRA EXPECTED RAVEN TO STILL HAVE THIS KIND OF FIGHT IN HER, BUT THAT’S THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMP FOR YOU!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN MANAGES TO SLIP OUT OF THE SUBMISSION! SIERRA QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET AFTER RAVEN FINALLY MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THAT CROSSFACE, AND- FACELIFT!!!! THE FACELIFT CONNECTS, AND RAVEN FALLS RIGHT ON TOP OF SIERRA!! RAVEN NEARLY KICKED SIERRA’S HEAD CLEAN OFF HER SHOULDER WITH THAT KICK, I THINK THIS ONE IS OVER!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!-
Rich Russillo: WHAT!? NO WAY, SIERRA LIVES!! SIERRA MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AT THE VERY LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT! RAVEN IS CLEARLY STILL HURTING AFTER EVERYTHING THAT JUST HAPPENED, BUT SHE’S NOT WASTING ANY TIME HERE AS SHE IMMEDIATELY LOCKS IN THE WING BREAKER, AND THIS IS WHERE I START TO WORRY FOR TEAM SASS!
James Peters: SIERRA IS SCRAMBLING HERE AND I THINK SHE DIDN’T EXPECT RAVEN TO PULL OFF SOMETHING LIKE THAT! RAVEN JUST WASTED NO TIME, AND IF SIERRA DOESN’T TAP OUT OR FIND HER WAY OUT RAVEN MIGHT JUST BREAK HER ARM! SIERRA BRADFORD AND SARAH PRICE HAVE BEEN TWO VERY IMPRESSIVE ELITISTS THAT CLEARLY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE FIGHTING FOR, BUT THIS JUST MIGHT BE TOO MUCH FOR THEM! IT REALLY DON’T THINK SIERRA CAN TAKE ANYMORE AFTER JUST GETTING HIT WITH THE FACELIFT, I THINK SHE’S JUST GONNA HAVE TO TAP-
Rich Russillo: SIERRA JUST ROLLED ONTO HER BACK AND PULLED RAVEN INTO A CRUCIFIX PIN!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN KICKS OUT, BUT SIERRA IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONS BACK INTO THE BLOODRUSH!! RAVEN NOT LETTING SIERRA FULLY LOCK THE SUBMISSION IN THOUGH, AND IN RETURN SHE MANAGES TO ROLL SIERRA UP WITH A SCHOOL BOY PIN!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA KICKS OUT, AND BOTH COMPETITORS GET BACK TO THEIR FEET! RAVEN LOOKING TO TAG IN REX- BUT LOOK AT THAT! SIERRA JUST CHARGED RIGHT IN AND SENT REX OFF THE APRON! ANOTHER FACELIFT BY RAVEN!!
James Peters: NO, SIERRA DUCKED IT, AND IN RETURN THERE’S ANOTHER THUNDERBIRD!! SIERRA DRAGGING RAVEN BACK TOWARDS HER CORNER, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO SARAH!! THIS ONE MAY BE OVER! ONCE AGAIN REX HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT, AND NOW RAVEN HAS NOWHERE TO GO! SARAH IS MAKING HER WAY TO THE TOP ROPE, AND WE SAW A GLIMPSE OF THIS EARLIER IN THE WEEK! SIERRA GRABBING RAVEN IN THAT SLEEPERHOLD POSITION, AND I THINK THIS ONE COULD BE FINISHING UP SOON! KNOCKOUT IMPEDIMENT!! WAIT, WAIT NO!! IT DOESN’T CONNECT!! RAVEN MANAGED TO LAND ON HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: TALON!!! RAVEN JUST TOOK SIERRA RIGHT OUT OF THE RING WITH THAT TALON, AND NOW SARAH JUMPS AT RAVEN, LOOKING FOR A DOUBLE AXE HANDLE- BUT SHE’S MET WITH ANOTHER CODEBREAKER, THIS TIME TAKING HER RIGHT OUT THE SKY AS SARAH ALSO ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! SARAH MANAGES TO ROLL BACK ONTO HER FEET, BUT NOW RAVEN IS RUNNING THE ROPES, AS SHE’S SOMEHOW CAUGHT A SECOND WIND! LOOK OUT SARAH!! FLIGHT DESTROYER!!! THE FLIGHT DESTROYER CONNECTS, THIS MAY BE BAD!! RAVEN NOW ROLLING SARAH BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE FOLLOWING BEHIND, AND NOW SHE BACKS INTO THE CORNER, WAITING FOR HER PREY TO GET BACK UP!
James Peters: SARAH LOOKS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! SHE’S SOMEHOW DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO ONCE AGAIN GET BACK TO HER FEET, BUT I DON’T THINK SHE KNOWS WHERE SHE IS! SARAH IS BACK UP, AND NOW RAVEN CHARGES IN!! TALO- BITTERSWEET ENDING!!!!! OH MY GOD, BITTERSWEET ENDING!!! SARAH JUST HIT THE BITTERSWEET ENDING, THAT HUGE SUPERKICK, AND RAVEN IS OUT COLD!! BOTH COMPETITORS JUST COLLAPSED, BUT SARAH IS USING ALL THAT’S LEFT IN HER TO PULL HERSELF ONTO RAVEN! SARAH FINALLY PULLING HERSELF ONTO RAVEN, AND I THINK THIS IS IT! THIS MATCH IS OVER!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: REX JUST BROKE UP THE PIN!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! REX JUST MANAGED TO SHOVE SARAH OFF OF RAVEN JUST BEFORE THE REFEREE COULD HIT THE MAT THE FINAL TIME! SARAH IS ON HER OWN HERE AFTER SIERRA WAS TAKEN OUT WITH THE TALON, AND IT LOOKS LIKE REX IS BACK IN THIS MATCH! THE REFEREE GETTING REX TO LEAVE THE RING, BUT AT THIS POINT WHAT’S DONE IS DONE! SARAH’S BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY TO WIN THIS MATCH MIGHT’VE JUST BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM HER!
James Peters: Sarah is pulling herself to her feet with the help of the ropes, and now she’s pulling Raven up as well! I’ll be honest, I don’t see how this could go well for Sarah at this point, but it looks like she’s gonna do whatever she can at this point, as she HITS RAVEN WITH A HUGE RIGHT HAND! AND ANOTHER! AND ONE MORE! SARAH IS GIVING EVERYTHING SHE HAS HERE, AND NOW SHE RUNS THE ROPES- JUST TO BE MET WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE! RAVEN QUICKLY BACKING INTO THE CORNER AND ALLOWS REX TO TAG HIMSELF IN, MEANWHILE SARAH IS BACKING INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND SIERRA IS ONLY JUST STIRRING!!
Rich Russillo: I DON’T THINK SARAH CARES! SHE’S GOING RIGHT AFTER BOTH REX AND RAVEN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S TRYING TO FIGHT BOTH OF THEM, KNOWING THE ODDS AREN’T IN HER FAVOR! YOU’VE GOT TO ADMIRE THE HEART SIERRA AND SARAH HAVE, BUT ESPECIALLY RIGHT NOW, I THINK THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH FOR SASS TO HANDLE! REX SHOVES SARAH BACK, AND SARAH REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! MELTDOWN!!!!! THAT MELTDOWN DOUBLE TEAM MOVE CONNECTS, AND NOW REX GOES FOR THE COVER, SARAH IS DONE!
James Peters: WAIT, IT’S SIERRA, SIERRA IS BACK IN THE RING, AND SHE JUMPS OUT TOWARDS REX AND SARAH!
Rich Russillo: TALON!!! RAVEN JUST JUMPED OVER REX AND SARAH TO HIT THE TALON RIGHT BEFORE SIERRA COULD BREAK UP THE PIN, IT’S OVER!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners… REX MCALLISTER AND THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION RAVEN ROBERTS, FIIIIIRREEEE AND IIIIIIIIICCCEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: IT’S FINISHED! What an effort by Sarah and Sierra here! Sierra came so close to being able to break up the pin, but in the end Raven was right there to stop her! SASS put up an admirable fight here, one that shows that they’re definitely going to go far if they keep this up, but in the end they didn’t get the job done. There’s no doubt that these two could become an incredible tag team as time goes on, but for now, congratulations Raven and Rex!
Rich Russillo: Fire and Ice do have their Unified Tag Team title match coming soon, and had they lost here that probably would’ve halted their momentum heading into it. This was a great look for them winning this match, but arguably an even better look for Sierra and Sarah doing as well as they did. Congratulations Fire and Ice, and SASS, there’s nothing for the two of you to hang your head at!
(‘Dark Horses’ hits as Raven Roberts and Rex McAllister both get to their feet. An official hands Raven her Universal Women’s Championship before the referee raises both of their hands. The two continue to celebrate their victory as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Crest toothpaste.)
(The scene reopens to the inside of Captain Charisma’s office. The Voltage Commissioner is sitting behind his desk, while Gaines is sitting in one of the chairs across from the desk. Gaines has a shit eating grin on his face, clearly pleased with his actions from earlier. Captain Charisma, on the other hand, doesn’t really look that impressed. In fact, he can’t help but give Gaines a look of disappointment.)
Captain Charisma: You seem real pleased with yourself.
Gaines: PAKA had it coming.
Captain Charisma: You realize that Shock Value is right around the corner and you will have ample opportunity to take PAKA on inside the ring.
Gaines: PAKA was goading me, and again, it’s not like he didn’t have it coming. In fact, I’m not about to be held accountable for what happens once we find ourselves in the ring against one another come Shock Value.
Captain Charisma: I don’t really recall seeing PAKA goading you. If anything, you instigated this whole fight by going out there for commentary when you weren’t scheduled.
Gaines: If you’re looking for me to apologize, that’s not happening because I stand by what I did. For months, I have had to put up with PAKA’s shit talk and his ridiculing of me. I’m sick of it, and honestly, CC, I’m sick of a lot of shit. People can’t keep my name out of their mouths, and I’m at the point where I’m about to just say ‘fuck it’ and do whatever the hell I feel like. People look at Korey Gaines and they see a man who is a pushover and when I step into the ring against Charlie in a few minutes, people are going to know I’m serious about everything I’m saying.
(Captain Charisma begins to reply but the door of his office burst open. A fuming Shortfuse PAKA storms in and looks at Gaines.)
Captain Charisma: You were supposed to come straight to my office!
(PAKA ignores him.)
Shortfuse PAKA: Korey Gaines! Who the fuck do you think you are?!
(Gaines stands up, clearly ready for round two, but Captain Charisma is out of his desk and in between the two men before they can come to blows.)
Captain Charisma: I swear I’ll suspend both of you if you even think of fighting right here in the middle of my office, and if that happens you both miss Shock Value and nothing gets settled.
Shortfuse PAKA: Oh it will get settled alright.
(Shortfuse PAKA practically spits in Gaines’ direction.)
Shortfuse PAKA: I asked Gaines to show me fire and passion, and obviously a fire seems to have been lit under his ass. That’s all I have ever wanted here, and I think we should raise the stakes of our match.
Gaines: Go on.
Captain Charisma: The match is already a Blackout Match. Someone is going to be thrown from the stage and have their body ripped to pieces by a ton of electrical equipment. What more could you possibly want?
(A sick smile spreads across PAKA’s ugly face and he stares right in his eyes.)
Shortfuse PAKA: I want careers on the line. I want a means to an end. Whoever survives out of Gaines and I gets the stay on Voltage. The loser just has to leave. It’s not like Korey is cut out for professional wrestling and fighting anyways! He struggles… all the time! He tries too hard! He cares more about getting laid than he does about the fight itself!
Gaines: Shut the fuck up. I’m so sick of people like you rehashing the same damn talking points against me. You want my career on the line? You’re actually dumb enough to put your own on the line? Fine. Let’s do it. I can’t wait to end you at Shock Value, and when I do, you better take your stupid brother-in-law with you.
Shortfuse PAKA: Believe me, if I go down at Shock Value I will take you with me. You fight fire with fire, and I fight to maim and kill! You will not be the exception and when all is said and done, you will never forget the Hell that Shortfuse PAKA put you through!
(PAKA spits right in Korey’s face and Korey lunges for PAKA’s neck! Captain Charisma grabs Korey and slams him back against the wall.)
Captain Charisma: OUT! GET OUT PAKA!
(PAKA laughs knowing he got the better of Korey tonight. Korey fights against Captain Charisma, as PAKA waves at him. ‘The Human Wrecking Ball’ exits the office and once the door shuts, Captain Charisma lets go of the fuming Korey.)
Captain Charisma: You have a lot of potential but right now you’re acting like a glorified hot head and making emotional decisions. You need to channel your energy and get your ass to the ring. Your match with Charlie is next. Now go, and don’t go after PAKA. I meant what I said about suspending the two of you.
(There is nothing but fire in Korey’s eyes and his first instinct is to lash out, but he heeds Captain Charisma’s warning and calms himself down. After a moment, he storms from the office.)
(The cameras follow Korey down the corridor for a few seconds before fading down to ringside.)
(Bella smiles into the camera.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
( ‘It Aint Safe’ by Skepta hits through the speakers to blasting boos from the audience in attendance. Charlie Marr slowly walks out from the Gorilla Position alongside Jordie Marr as always, and the two both have clearly unamused looks on their faces after what happened earlier. Charlie scans the atmosphere before making his way down towards the squared circle. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! Accompanied by Jordie Marr… From Tower Hamlets, London, England, weighing in at 240 pounds… HE IS THE LIBERTINE.. CHARRRRRLIIIEEEEE MARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
James Peters: These two don’t look very happy after what went down tonight.
Rich Russillo: Well obviously! Malcolm Jones as the Special Guest Referee at Shock Value? I’d be mad too.
James Peters: I guess you’re right about that. Charlie might just be doomed.
Rich Russillo: Anyways, Charlie Marr has exhibited very dangerous tendencies since he lost his world championship and he will finally get his rematch against Andrea Valentine in an Electrified Steel Cage of Deathmatch. Charlie is finally going to get his opportunity and tonight, he plans on sending a message to Andrea Valentine on what fate she will receive at Shock Value.
( As Marr stands in his corner, ‘Thunderstruck’ by ACDC is heard throughout the arena, prompting an earthquaking pop as Korey Gaines makes his appearance on the stage. Appearing more concentrated and confident than ever, he marches down the ramp while high-fiving front-row members along the way. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, weighing in at 170 pounds… THE AERIAL WONDER…. KORRRRRREEEEYYY GAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNESSSSSS!!
James Peters: I just received word that not only Korey Gaines versus Paka will be a black-out match, but both men will have their Voltage careers on the line. That will be very interesting, but Korey Gaines must worry about the task at hand here. If he is able to defeat Charlie Marr, that will put him in a great place as we get closer to his encounter with Paka.
( DING! DING! DING! )

James Peters: Gaines starting off this match with aggression which is what he needs to do as Marr has a reputation for upholding and utilizing his ruthless aggression to his advantage. Marr slowly gets into the ring as they both circle around the canvas. They initiate a collar-and-elbow tie-up, but Marr quickly overpowers him and muscles The Aerial Wonder into the turnbuckles. The referee separates him, but MARR SNEAKS IN A PUNCH TO THE JAW, STUNNING GAINES.

HE GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!
James Peters: KICK-OUT YET AGAIN!! Charlie Marr quickly changed the complexion of this match and he is making Gaines pay for the disrespect he showed in the very start of the match. Marr swings in for a clothesline, Gaines goes around his waist and comes off the ropes. He jumps into Marr, goes around his body for a TILT-A-WHIRL DDT!! BUT MARR USES HIS STRENGTH TO HOLD ON!! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND HOISTS GAINES INTO A SUPLEX HOLD!!! GAINES TILTS OVER AND LOCKS IN A SLEEPER!!

Marr falters into the middle of the ring while Gaines rolls through the ropes and shoots off the canvas! MARR GOES FACE-FIRST INTO THE CANVAS AS GAINES GOES FOR THE COVER!!
James Peters: KICKOUT! Korey is now perched on the top turnbuckle as Marr quickly takes the foundation out beneath him. He climbs the buckles and hooks his tights! SUPERPLEX!! NO!!

( DING! DING! DInG! )
( ‘It Aint Safe’ by Skepta blasts through the speakers to ear-deafening boos as Charlie Marr gingerly rises up to a standing position, and Jordie Marr gets into the ring. The referee raises Charlie’s hand, but Charlie still looks frustrated, still thinking about the fact that Malcolm Jones will be officiating his match at Shock Value. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… CHARRRRRLIIEEE MARRRRRR!!!
Rich Russillo: Despite the anger he must still be feeling, Charlie Marr collects another win, proving why he just might be our next EAW World Champion as he vanquishes Korey Gaines tonight. An amazing performance by these two that had every fan in the arena and at home on the edge of their seats and you got to hand it to Korey Gaines.
James Peters: Absolutely, even though Korey Gaines hasn’t maintained a successful track record, tonight was one of his best performances yet and if I were PAKA, I’d be intimidated to put my career against someone like Korey.
(Jordie and Charlie exit the ring, pondering the situation Charlie will be facing at Shock Value, and Voltage fades into the final promo ad of the night.)
(A promotional ad for the Showdown exclusive event, Under Siege, airs highlighting the grudge match between Xander Payne and Mr. DEDEDE. See the two Elitists settle their differences when Under Siege comes to you from the DirectTV Arena in Buenos Aires, Argentina! Under Siege takes place on March 14th and you can see only on free-per-view!)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen THIS IS THE MAIN EVENT! And it is for… THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi plays up to a mixed reaction as Dr. Bethany Blue makes her way out to the stage. She looks around and gives a slow nod as she does so with a face of fierce determination as she makes her way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Miami, Florida… weighing 128 pounds… DR. BETHANY BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Things have gone down hill for the Doctor and at a quickening rate. She didn’t expect to lose the Interwire Championship at King of Elite and frankly she’s not the happiest camper that she usually is because of it. It’s clear it’s set her differently and it’s something that she wants to change.
James Peters: And now she gets another chance at that, but could it be her last? If she loses again who knows what could happen, could it possibly show that she’s now undeserving of the title she once held? That’s something she doesn’t want to fathom in the near future as for now she’s dead set on winning that title from the “bee-itch” that took it from her.
(Dr. Bethany Blue enters the ring and steps through the ropes as she looks around before giving a “bring it” gesture and quickly circling around the ring before stopping and heading to her corner to warm up as ‘Bad Medicine’ fades out. ‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day then plays to loud cheers as Ms. Extreme makes her way out to the stage. She looks at the Doctor with a smirk as to add insult to injury she raises the Interwire Championship up and keeps it high in the air as she makes her way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… from Calabases, California… weighing in at 135 pounds… SHE IS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION… THE RED QUEEN… MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Meanwhile Ms. Extreme might as well consider herself on top of the World heading into this match up. All the setbacks that she had to occur during the lead up to King of Elite finally pay off as in the end she finally gained her rightful spot as she now holds the Interwire Championship.
James Peters: And that’s something she plans not to let go of for a long time. What would that show if she loses tonight and only has a 2 week reign? While the Doc wants to change the narrative, Ms. Extreme wants to make history and that’s what she plans to do, and in order to do that she has to win.
(Ms. Extreme enters the ring and steps over the ropes and raises the Interwire Championship in the air before hopping down and walking right up to Dr. Bethany Blue raising it up once more as they quickly begin to trash talk one another before Ms. Extreme backs up and heads to her corner as ‘Gangsta’ fades out and the Ref raises the Interwire Championship in the air before signaling for the bell)

James Peters: MS. EXTREME REVERSING AND LANDING A SUPERPLEX AS THEY FLY OUT OF THE RING! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN! Ms. Extreme slowly grabbing the barricade how is she able to quickly get up after what just happened?! Ms. Extreme grabbing Blue by the hair and slowly rolling her into the ring as she crawls over to her. MS. EXTREME GOING FOR THE PIN! THIS MIGHT BE LIGHTS OUT FOR THE DOCTOR!
Rich Russillo: CLOSE KICKOUT BY BLUE! Ms. Extreme shaking her head as frustration slowly begins to show as she brings Blue up to her feet and slowly pushes her into the corner before she can do anything.

Rich Russillo: Blue quickly rolling out of the ring with a dastardly smirk as she pulls up Ms. Extreme slowly taking her time as Ms. Extreme is clearly lifeless. Blue rolling her into the ring as she approaches. BLUE GOING FOR A PIN ATTEMPT! COULD WE SEE A NEW CHAMPION?!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME KICKING OUT! CAMILLE JANE AVA FIGHTS ON! Blue slamming the mat in anger as she slowly brings up Ms. Extreme up and lifting her off the ground! NO! MS.

EXTREME GOES FOR THE PIN WILL SHE RETAIN?!
Rich Russillo: BLUE KICKS OUT! Pinfall after pinfall after kick out after kick out none of these competitors in this matchup want to give up for a moment. The dedication they bleed for the Interwire Championship is too much as none of them want to let go! Ms. Extreme is shaking her head as she waits for Blue as she slowly brings herself up to her feet.

Rich Russillo: Both Ms. Extreme and Blue are down and out in exhaustion as they can’t seem to pull themselves up to their feet in order to continue this match! Ms. Extreme with the first sign of life as Blue closely follows behind. Ms. Extreme up onto her feet as Blue grabs ahold of Ms. Extreme and uses her as leverage to pull herself up. That’s not a good idea as Ms. Extreme pushes back and runs to the ropes and back. THE REMEDY! MY GAWD BLUE HITS THE CUTTER OUT OF NOWHERE AS SHE GOES FOR THE PIN QUICKLY!

BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN IN EXHAUSTION AS NONE OF THEM CAN’T SEEM TO FINISH THIS MATCH OFF FOR GOOD! OH MY! MS. EXTREME IS ALIVE! SHE MOVES HER ARM AS SHE MIGHT BE GOING FOR THE PIN! IS SHE GOING TO RETAIN HERE!
(Ms. Extreme crawls for the pin with agony on her face as she reaches her hand out the lights turn off)
Rich Russillo: Do we never pay for the lights? What is going on?
(Screams and laughter echo across the arena as many of the crowd members try to turn on flashlights confused on what’s happening whilst the lights are off, this wasn’t an accident)
James Peters: MY GAWD! THE CORVUS! LARS GRIER, LEVI, RATH! THEY’RE IN THE RING THEY’VE ARRIVED AND THEY’RE NOT HERE FOR A PLAYDATE! LARS IS CHOKING OUT MS. EXTREME WITH- IS THAT A CROWBAR?! LARS CHOKING MS. EXTREME WITH A CROWBAR AS THE REFEREE IS KNOCKED DOWN AND UNCONSCIOUS! MS. EXTREME TRYING TO HOLD ON BUT THE CORVUS IS RELENTLESS ON THEIR ATTACK! WAIT!
Rich Russillo: TERRY CHAMBERS! HE’S ARRIVED TO ASSIST THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! HE SLIDES INTO THE RING BUT THE CORVUS IS QUICKLY RETREATING AS THEY ROLL OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: It doesn’t even matter because the damage has been done. Ms. Extreme has been put to sleep thanks to that crowbar and I can’t help but think back to the warning Levi issued to Ms. Extreme and Terry Chambers earlier tonight.
(The Corvus retreat up the ramp but as Lars backs up he bumps right into Dr. Bethany Blue. Lars turns unsure what to say about this encounter whether to attack or what not. The two stare one another down with cold stares. But a evil smile crosses the Good Doctor’s face as that’s the last shot seen as the camera fades to black)
