(EAW intro plays.)
(A highlight video of last week’s amazing episode of Voltage begins to play, showcasing the fall-out of Shock Value and Grand Rampage build.)
(RECAP: Charlie Marr kicks off the show looking like a snack, and it’s obvious he is angry over what went down in the Electrified Steel Cage of Death Match for the EAW World Championship. Charlie blames Malcolm Jones, who served as the referee of the match, for costing him the victory over Andrea Valentine. Charlie runs down Andrea and calls out Malcolm, demanding that Malcolm put his number one contendership status on the line. Andrea is the person who comes to the ring and eventually a brawl breaks out between the two. Malcolm would come down to the ring and get involved, but accidentally take out Andrea with a Pele kick. The shock of that would allow Charlie to take advantage and lay Malcolm out with a ‘Charing Cross.’)
(RECAP CONTINUES: As always, the men and women of Voltage poured their hearts and souls into their matches. Grizzly Bear Rocco picked up his first victory over the debuting Dorian Cade. The two big men would put on a show, but Rocco pulled the victory out after hitting Cade with the Cannonball Sault. Another man who picked up a much needed victory was Alun Wyn Jones. Jones would take on Colby Sol in a great back and forth match, but eventually Jones would earn the submission victory. Former Universal Women’s Champion, Raven Roberts, wasted no time calling out Minerva for using the Iconic Cup to take Raven’s championship. She challenges the newly crowned ‘Gypsy Moth’ for Grand Rampage, and vows to become a two-time women’s champion.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: Speaking of championships, Shawn Sturgis learned what his ‘Unique Opportunity’ would be. Captain Charisma would reward the talented Elitist with a chance to face Ms. Extreme for the Interwire Championship. As great as that is, Shawn couldn’t help but question what made the match so ‘unique’ and that’s when Captain Charisma informed him that he would be able to choose the stipulation of the match. After giving it some thought, Shawn decided on a Lumberjack match! Sophia Clarke would interview Ms. Extreme immediately after the announcement and the confident champion would basically brush Sturgis off and set her sights on Lars Grier! Ms. Extreme let it be known that what’s going on between Lars and herself is far from over.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: The in-ring action picked back up with Sierra Bradford and our bearded beauty, Charlie. Sarah Price and Jordie Marr would be at ringside to support their respective partners and engage in the fuckery, obviously. In a shocking [or not so shocking depending on how you look at it] twist of events, Malcolm would show up and get some revenge on Charlie for his actions earlier in the evening. He would take out Charlie and help Sierra secure the biggest victory of her career, and Malcolm would end up with the final laugh after putting Charlie down. More drama ensued when Dr. Bethany Blue would admit to Nurse Goldstein that she did something dirty the previous night at Under Siege. After seeing her beloved Jake Smith talking to Alexis Chambers once again, the good doctor would dump flu virus samples into Alexis’ gym bag. Nurse Goldstein tried to steer the doctor’s mind in another direction, suggesting that Dr. Blue go ahead and plan her next move. Dr. Blue reassured Nurse Goldstein that she had already decided what her next direction would be; her baby brown eyes were firmly on the Specialists Championship!)
(RECAP CONTINUES: In what should have been a pretty basic match between Rex McAllister and Korey Gaines ended up having an entirely different meaning for The Aerial Wonder. Prior to the match, Korey would find out that he’d been traded to Dynasty. Whether this affected Korey during the match or not is something only Korey knows, but he certainly left his heart in the ring. Rex would pick up the win, and Korey would say goodbye to his home for the last year and a half. Backstage, Terry Chambers and Consuela Rose Ava would come face to face. A nice conversation between the two would ensue, and the chemistry would be pretty obvious honestly, however they would end up getting interrupted by Captain Charisma. Captain Charisma would inform Terry that he would be in this year’s Grand Rampage match, and the Barbaric Carnivore would happily accept the chance to rewrite his own Grand Rampage history.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: Terry would face off against Lars Grier in the Voltage main event. Obviously, Lars would come into the match with the momentum having gotten the better of Terry and Ms. Extreme back at Shock Value when he teamed with the good doctor. Terry would have revenge on his mind and these two titans would throw everything they had at one another. At one point, the two men would actually DENT the steel ringsteps! Lars would introduce a crowbar into the match and take it to Terry, and when he went to try and finish off his adversary, Ms. Extreme would show up! She would rip the crowbar from Lars’ hands and accidentally hit Terry with it! Lars would throw her from the ring and steal the victory! Ms. Extreme would try to apologize after the fact to Terry but he wasn’t having it. She would attack Lars and send a message, and let Lars know that at Grand Rampage, it would be the two of them in the ring!)
(The highlight video fades out and the camera cuts to a panoramic view of the Jeunesse Arena in Rio. It’s night three of EAW’s weekend long stint of shows in Brazil’s party city, and the fans are excited for what’s to come tonight! Live events and mass gatherings are few and far between, so the people in the crowd know how lucky they are right now! Some are even waving around their coupons for 2% off their purchase of the GawdzillaPro© N95 masks! “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami plays itself out as gold and white pyro shoots off! When the smoke clears, the camera pans down to the broadcast booth where Rich Russillo, James Peters, and Persephone Tsitsipas are standing by. Rich and James are wearing slacks, sports coats, and custom t-shirts that show Dr. Bethany Blue wearing a hazmat suit and holding a syringe, with the slogan ‘Let me cure your COVID… or malaria.’ Persphone wears a fitted gold jumpsuit with a plunging neckline. Rich and James grin, and Persphone blows a bubble with her pink gum.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Voltage! As always, I’m James Peters and we have one hell of a show lined up for you tonight! As always, I’m joined by my longtime partner, Rich Russillo, and the new edition to the Voltage broadcast team, Persephone! How are you guys tonight?
Persephone: Honestly? I’m already bored AF! The only upside to waiting for Sexy Rexy’s match later on is the fact the lighting in here is perfect for a selfie! Last week I gained over 50,000 Instagram followers!
Rich Russillo: And I was one of them! Gawd, you are so photogenic…
James Peters: Anyways! We have a great show tonight like I said, Rex McAllister and the EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine, will clash in our main event tonight. In addition to that, Lars Grier and Malcolm Jones will square off in a match that had a pretty heated war of words this week.
Persephone: SLAGS are in action tonight against that weird doctor and the bearded terrorist, and there’s a bunch of other shit going on that no one cares because obviously we all just wanted to see Rex in action.
Rich Russillo: You really got a thing for Rex, don’t you?
Persephone: I want his children in my mouth.
James Peters (nearly chokes on his water): Well then…
Persephone: :mjgrin: So anyways, we’re kicking things off tonight with whatever the hell this clusterfuck of a Lumberjack match is for the redheaded bitch’s title. So let’s get it over with already.
(The camera cuts to a pan around the ringside area. Many, if not all, the Voltage locker room is surrounding the ring, minus a few select like Malcolm Jones. The ringside area seems split into two sections by the looks of it. The most notable ones are The Beating Hearts of Voltage, Rex McAllister and Terry Chambers are on one side of the ring, and Charlie Marr, Dr. Bethany Blue and Lars Grier are seen on the opposite side. The others are spread out around the ring, each competitor though leaning more to the side of their favoring. Bella Braxton is then shown in the middle of the ring with a bright smile as she begins to speak)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: And it is a LUMBERJACK MATCH FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(‘Beautiful People’ by Marilyn Manson begins to play up across the arena to loud, appreciative cheers as Shawn Sturgis makes his way out to the stage. He aims straight for the ring only giving little glances to the lumberjacks that surround the ring and encapsulate him. As the lights flicker on and off Shawn slowly begins to make his way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… the challenger… from Riverside, California… weighing in at 190 pounds… THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR… SHAWN STURGIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: You talk about rising stars in this business currently, you’ve got the perfect definition of Shawn Sturgis. He’s been on a tear of Voltage so far and look where that got him to, a special opportunity which gave him the situation he is in now, a match for the Interwire Championship.
James Peters: And of course we can add to the fact he was able to choose the stipulation himself which was the lumberjack match environment that we place ourselves into tonight. Which seems to put into question what advantage he has now that the stipulation he chose is in play, and even more will that lead him to the Interwire Championship?
Persephone: I sent him the Frozen 2 palette and everything, and he still looks like absolute shit. That’s what makes him the loser in this matchup, Persephone knows all, I’ll be your guide to victory.
(Shawn slowly makes his way down to the ramp before heading to the ringside area. Many of the elitist back off not willing to engage this early in the match, but two people that tensions boil with are the imposing threats of Grizzly Bear Rocco and Alun Wyn Jones, both are on the opposite sides of each other but are the closest to Shawn as he rolls into the ring. He removes his hood slowly as he goes to sit in his corner as ‘Beautiful People’ fades out. ‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day plays up to even louder cheers as Ms. Extreme makes her way out to the stage. She brandishes the Interwire Championship on her shoulder before raising it up the air to even more cheers. She holds it up and continues to walk down to the ring with a smug look on her face)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Calabasas, California… weighing in at 135 pounds… she is the INTERWIRE CHAMPION… THE RED QUEEN… MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Ms. Extreme she seems to be entering unknown territory coming into this match. Whilst the danger is the fact that this is a lumberjack match that in itself should explain itself, look at the choice of people that are out here. Charlie Marr, Dr. Bethany Blue and Lars Grier, all people I’m sure that will do everything in their power to make sure that she does not walk out the Interwire Champion.
James Peters: Am I the only one that sees the other side of the ring Rich? The Beating Hearts of Voltage, Terry Chambers and Rex McAllister I’m sure they’ll do everything in their power to prevent that to say the least, its equal filling. I wouldnt be surprised if she retains tonight, she’s capable of doing so, and she knows that too. But she’s going to do everything in her power no matter the roadblock to keep the Interwire Championship.
Persephone: Did you know I hate red heads? Yeah so you know who I’m rooting for, that is all I have to say on the matter thank you.
(Ms. Extreme makes her way to the ringside area as she looks around. Charlie and Bethany both begin to close in on her but the Beating Hearts of Voltage quickly step forward as well forcing them back. Ms. Extreme gives a nod as she rolls into the ring and raises the Interwire Championship high in the air before handing it to the Ref and heading to her corner as ‘Gangsta’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this Interwire Title match is underway! Both competitors circling around as it seems the most hyped people in the arena are the lumberjacks who are just waiting for one slip up to see the competitors tumble out of the ring. Ms. Extreme and Shawn quickly lockup with one another as Shawn is wasting no time beginning to push Ms. Extreme into the ropes as he sends her into a irish whip. SHAWN SIDESTEPPING MS. EXTREME AS HE ATTEMPTS TO THROW HER OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme catching herself though as it looks like she’s laughing at Shawn more than anything else. Shawn looking angered as he runs towards Ms. Extreme! MS. EXTREME ATTEMPTING TO LIFT SHAWN OVER HER HEAD AND OUT OF THE TING BUT SHAWN QUICKLY DROPS HIS WEIGHT! Shawn shifting the animosity as he sends Ms. Extreme into the corner and seemingly brings himself away from danger more than anyone else.
Persephone: Shawn is running over to Ms. Extreme as he connects with possibly one of the most weakest knee strike to the gut I’ve ever seen. Shawn is pushing the red haired slut out of the corner as she apparently still wants to push herself up more than anything else. Shawn is running towards her! BUT MS. EXTREME REVERSES WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme pushing herself up to her feet quickly as Shawn rolls up to his feet as well. Ms. Extreme looking to attack Shawn right away! BUT SHAWN WITH A HEADBUTT STOPPING MS. EXTREME RIGHT IN HER TRACKS! Shawn shaking his head in pain as Ms. Extreme runs at him. SHAWN MEETING IN THE MIDDLE WITH A CLOTHESLINE RIGHT TO MS. EXTREME BEFORE SHE CAN DO ANYTHING AS SHE FALLS DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme getting up slowly but Shawn is wasting no time slowly pushing her into the ropes looking to throw her over and out of the ring which seems to be the most effective thing to do. But Ms. Extreme with a axe handle right to the back of Shawn forcing him backwards! Shawn running towards Ms. Extreme as Ms. Extreme is just barely managing to get her bearings!
Persephone: MS. EXTREME OUT OF NOWHERE THROWING SHAWN OUT TO THE OUTSIDE! YES! Shawn is just lamb to the slaughter now as look who’s already running over to take advantage in the form of the ugly bear and the even hairier hobo! HOBO QUICKLY RUNNING OVER AS HE TAKES SHAWN DOWN WITH THAT JUMPING NECKBREAKER! NOS DA CONNECTS! HOBO WAS THE ONE PINNED IN THAT MATCH AND NOW HE’S COME FOR REVENGE! But look at Sexy Rexy! Rexy quickly grabbing a hurt Shawn as and rolling him into the ring before any harm can be done to him even more like the good samaritan he is :salute:.
Rich Russillo: I dont even know what a bear and a hobo would be doing there but that was Rocco and Alun trying to attack Shawn. But whatever you say what you want kween. Ms. Extreme realizing the injuries of Shawn after the quick attack out of nowhere from Alun Wyn Jones onto Shawn. Yet Shawn is slowly pulling himself up to his feet but The Red Queen looks to pick up the pace as she begins to close in on hin. Ms. Extreme bringing him up as she sets him up for something big to top off what was already done! TWIST OF FATE! NO! NO! SHAWN WITH UNBELIEVABLE STAMINA MANAGES TO REVERSE THE TWIST OF FATE TO MS. EXTREME’S SURPRISE! HE TURNS IT AROUND AS HE TURNS MS. EXTREME AROUND AND GRABS HER FROM BEHIND!
James Peters: SHAWN SHOVES MS. EXTREME OUT OF THE RING IN RETURN! MS. EXTREME TUMBLING OUT OF THE RING AS SHE’S DOWN ON THE GROUND! AND IF IT WASN’T ANY WORST RIGHT IN THE VICINITY OF CHARLIE MARR! Ms. Extreme quickly getting up as she attempts to retreat away quickly! CHARING CROSS! CHARLIE WITH THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE AS HIM! DR. BETHANY BLUE BRINGING MS. EXTREME UP AS SHE LOOKS TO DO SOME DAMAGE AS WELL! WAIT! WAIT! RAVEN WITH A TALON RIGHT TO THE FACE OF CHARLIE TAKING HIM DOWN! BUT IT’S TOO LATE AS THE DOCTOR CONNECTS WITH THE REMEDY! THE CUTTER CONNECTS AS HER AND LARS RETREAT AWAY AS THE CONSUELA, RAVEN, ANDREA, REX AND TERRY RUN AFTER THEM! Ms. Extreme is down and out as it seems the villains of this story have severely damaged her. as they’re all trying to pull her up to her feet quickly. They’re taking their time trying to check on her as they go and they’re slowly beginning to roll her into the ring.
Persephone: Meanwhile if you take a look at Exhibit B you see the wild Marilyn Manson in the corner in his natural habitat. He’s crouched down as he watches his prey enter the habitat. The wild adopted red haired beast slowly pulls herself up as they eye each other. Look at that beast roar!
Ms. Extreme (Off-Mic): I’M NOT DEAD YET! HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT!
Rich Russillo: Shawn seemingly agreeing as he quickly walks up to her. But Ms. Extreme managing to get up and attack him! Ms. Extreme landing a barrage of punches down on Shawn forcing him backwards into the corner! Ms. Extreme continuing with punches right to the gut but Shawn is quickly pushing away as he runs forward and towards her! EXPLODER SUPLEX OUT OF NOWHERE TAKING SHAWN OUT!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme with a burst of energy after nearly getting beheaded by Charlie Marr at ringside! Shawn slowly crawling to the ropes as he begins to slowly pull himself up to his feet. The Interwire Champion sees that as she quickly runs at Shawn! SHAWN WITH A STO AS MS. EXTREME LANDS FACE FIRST ONTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!
Persephone: Shawn taking Ms. Extreme down to the ground! Yeah don’t let the redhead win! Shawn bringing Ms. Extreme up off the ground once more sending her into a irish whip! But Ms. Extreme grabbing a hold of the ropes! BUT SHAWN TAKING MS. EXTREME BY SURPRISE AS HE SENDS THE ADOPTED ONE OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: BUT MS. EXTREME LANDING ON THE APRON BEFORE ANY OTHER TROUBLE! Ms. Extreme barely saving herself as she quickly enters the ring once more. You can see Lars and Bethany and the now recovered Charlie running over to try and grab her but it’s too late! Shawn trying to take advantage as he attempts to push her again! But Ms. Extreme turning it around as she grabs him and attempts to lure him into the ropes! BUT SHAWN SHOVING AWAY AS MS. EXTREME RUNS AT HIM! STUNNER! STUNNER TAKES MS. EXTREME DOWN! MS. EXTREME IS KNOCKED DOWN AS SHAWN QUICKLY GOES FOR THE PIN! COULD WE SEE A NEW INTERWIRE CHAMPION RIGHT HERE?!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME POWERS OUT! Shawn shaking his head in frustration as he pulls himself up to his feet. He’s slowly climbing the top rope! I think he’s going for Look No Hands! If he connects this it might be over as we know it! WAIT! MS. EXTREME! WITH ANOTHER BURST OF ENERGY AS SHE LEAPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE TO JOIN SHAWN! Shawn with multiple punches before Ms. Extreme can even do anything at this point it’s just a matter of time before Shawn pushes her off! WAIT! WAIT! MS. EXTREME WITH A UPPERCUT AS SHE WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND SHAWN’S HEAD! GLASS CEILING!
Persephone: NOPE! SHAWN PUSHING OFF AS HE ATTEMPTS TO LEAP! BUT MS. EXTREME WITH DESPERATION AS SHE SHOVES SHAWN OFF THE TOP ROPE! SHAWN TUMBLING DOWN TO THE FLOOR! THE LUMBERJACKS ARE READY FOR HIM!
Rich Russillo: LOOK! GRIZZLY BEAR ROCCO! SHAWN IS GETTING UP TO HIS FEET BUT IT’S TOO LATE AS ROCCO IS ALREADY TAKING HIM DOWN AS HE MAULS RIGHT THROUGH HIM SLAMMING HIM FLAT TO THE GROUND! ! ROCCO BEATING THE ABSOLUTE LIVING SHIT OUT OF SHAWN AS HE FLINGS HIM AROUND LIKE THE HUMAN EQUIVALENT OF A RAGDOLL!
Grizzly Bear Rocco (Off-Mic): THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MY MATCH! YOU STOLE IT FROM ME!
James Peters: LOOK AT ROCCO! ROCCO SLAMMING SHAWN BY THE NECK BACKFIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! ROCCO STILL BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF HIM! Alun was looking to go after him but he’s backing off seeing Rocco beat the shit out of Shawn.
Persephone: Look at that adopted redhead in the ring watching! WAIT! ITS THE CORONAVIRUS! THE VIRUS IS COMING AFTER MS. EXTREME AND PASSING IT DOWN!
Rich Russillo: YOU MEAN LARS! LARS GRIER PULLING MS. EXTREME OUT OF THE RING WHILST THE REF WAS DISTRACTED! MS. EXTREME TRYING TO PUSH AWAY AND RETREAT BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE CAN HAPPEN BUT LARS! GORE! GORE TAKES MS. EXTREME DOWN AS LARS ROLLS HER QUICKLY BACK INTO THE RING LEAVING HER TO SHAWN’S DIGRESSION!
James Peters: Look at Lars quickly running over to Rocco and barking orders as he surely wants Shawn to win this matchup and gain the Interwire Championship out of this! But that doesnt seen to be the case for Rocco as both of them seemingly have deferring opinions about the topic as Rocco laughs! BLACK HOLE SLAM! SWINGING WRECKING BALL CONNECTS ONTO SHAWN! Rocco rolling Shawn into the ring as it seems both competitors are down! Lars seemingly frustrated at Rocco as he goes back to his side not willing to engage on someone possibly two times his size! I dont think any of them are going to get up! They’ve been brutalized to the point where they could be mistaken for dead! WAIT! OH MY! BUT LOOK! MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME IS ALIVE AS SHE SLOWLY BEGINS TO CRAWL! STURGIS IS STILL LIFELESS AS SHE SLOWLY PUSHES HIM OVER! PIN ATTEMPT! PIN ATTEMPT! HOLY SHIT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Gangsta’ plays up once more as the Beating Hearts, Terry and Rex all collectively slide into the ring as their enemies clearly are seething on the outside. Consuela Rose Ava hands Ms. Extreme the Interwire Championship as she slowly pulls herself up to her feet. She splits away from the crowd as she raises the Interwire Championship high in victory. Shawn Sturgis is seen on the ground as clearly Grizzly Bear Rocco and Alun Wyn Jones are seen slowly nodding to one another, their job is done. Charlie Marr is repeatedly slamming the apron in anger as he pulled himself up to his feet, Lars Grier is seething as he shakes his head as well especially after all he did to prevent her from winning, and Dr. Bethany Blue is beside herself in anger. All while Ms. Extreme continues to celebrate in the ring along with with the rest of the allies she’s contingent with)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner, AND STILL INTERWIRE CHAMPION… MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: GODDAMMIT! THOSE LUMBERJACKS ONLY HAD ONE JOB AND THEY BLEW IT! BLEW IT! I AM FILLED WITH RAGE THIS MONSTROSITY! I HATE RED HEADS!
Rich Russillo: :whoa: What a match we have seen here tonight. Despite everything put in her way especially with the interferences of Charlie Marr and Lars Grier to specifically name a few, Ms. Extreme managed to retain her Interwire Championship here tonight!
James Peters: Don’t take anything away from Shawn Sturgis as well. Despite the advantages that Ms. Extreme had he managed to push her to her absolute limit and at the end of the day was very close to winning the Interwire Championship. Whilst his concerns are definitely focused on Rocco at the very moment it appears that it won’t be long till he gets another shot at a championship again. But as for now the Red Queen reigns supreme!
(The last shot is of Ms. Extreme making her way up to the ramp with the rest of the Beating Hearts and of course along with Terry and Rex. The lumberjacks have cleared the way but that doesnt change the fact that some were unhappy about it. Ms. Extreme raises the Interwire Championship in the air once more as the camera fades off to elsewhere.)
(Commercial break for ‘Hoarders’ starring all the assholes who decided to buy all the toilet paper.)
(We cut back to the Backstage area. Specifically, the camera shows an interview set in which The Woogieman is sitting on a chair with a microphone pinned to his shirt. Molly Waters is ready to interview him)
Molly Waters: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time. The Woogieman!
The Woogieman: Thank you Molly, I am happy to be here with you.
Molly Waters: Woogieman, it’s been a rough couple of weeks for you. You lost your match against Jesse Barlow at Shock Value after all the shenanigans that happened between you, him and Hannah. How do you feel after what happened at the latest Voltage Free Per View?
The Woogieman: You know, Molly, I’m not going to lie and pretend that loss didn’t affect me. It did hurt my pride. But trust me when I tell you, this is not the end for Woogieman. After Shock Value was over, I was sad and depressed so I decided to take a week off and recharge my batteries.
Molly Waters: How was Rio de Janeiro?
The Woogieman: Fantastic! The sun, the beaches, the sea… I loved every second of it. I really needed to take my mind off all the BS I’ve been witnessing. And I’m not talking just about my EAW career, no. I’m talking about the whole world. I’m talking about Kobe, about COVID 19… it’s crazy out there.
Molly Waters: You are absolutely right. These are tough times for everyone. Speaking of which, how do you feel physically? Shock Value is quite possibly the most dangerous Free Per View in EAW.
The Woogieman: Look. The match against Jesse Barlow definitely took its toll. I mean, it was insane. It hurt me just as much as it hurt him. The electric eels shocked his arm, then they attacked me… it was crazy. Matches like those can end your career in an instant and I’m happy to be alive and still breathing. I’m thankful for that. But..
Molly Waters: …But what!
The Woogieman: I can’t help but feel bad about those poor eels! PETA was right, we should have never had that match. How can you exploit such an adorable animal just to entertain a crowd? You already have me as the entertainer. What else do you want? Animals should stay in zoos, they should be petted 24/7 and respected at all times.
Molly Waters: I am not sure I follow you. Where are you going with this, Woogie? I don’t see your point.
The Woogieman: Molly, I hereby announce that I, The Woogieman, will now be a spokesperson for eels’s rights! That’s right! No more eel abuse! It ends today! Well, actually it ends with Shock Value! No more!
Molly Waters: Wait, what? What do you mean by that?
The Woogieman: See, Molly. At Shock Value I put everything on the line, my PETA sponsorship included. Now, it’s my turn to do something for our sweet little friends electric eels. They are so tiny and adorable! It is time to put an end to their exploitment. Voltage is never going to have another Electric Eels match under my watch. No sir! Never again!
Molly Waters: These are tough words, although your purpose is definitely honorable. How exactly do you plan to achieve this?
The Woogieman: It is very simple! I’ve started a GoFundMe. All the money I get will go to the preservation of electric eels. Here’s the Twitter account.
(The Twitter @ is shown on screen)
The Woogieman: Go and donate right now! Doesn’t matter how much money you can afford, every single bit helps massively. One dollar, two dollars, twenty dollars, hell, even two million dollars! Give me all the money you have and we will save the electric eels together!
Molly Waters: Alright, well…. thank you for your contribution, Woogieman! Your cause is definitely noble. I wish you luck in your quest to save as many electric eels as possible! But can we talk about wrestling now? See, Grand Rampage is around the corner and now there’s more excitement than ever in the EAW world. People are wondering what are your next plans, going forward!
The Woogieman: Well, I will tell my fans to not worry about The Woogieman. I am always one step ahead. There is always a plan in my head and I never quit. There are many things I can do and many paths I can take on my way to Grand Rampage. Now that I took one week off, I feel fully recharged and I feel like nothing can stop me.
Molly Waters: That’s good to hear! So tell us, Woogie! What are your next plans?
The Woogieman: The thing is Molly, I need to get back on track after Shock Value. I plan to do that by challenging Komatsu Ogawa for MY Big Boogie Bhampionship. I want MY precious title back. That Bhampionship gold is worth just as much as an electric eel’s life to me. It is what made my career and now I want it back. I will walk in Grand Rampage as the Bhampion and then people will understand that The Woogieman was down but never out.
Molly Waters: WOW! That is a massive announcement! What are you going to tell Ogawa?
(The Woogieman takes off his sunglasses and turns to face the camera)
The Woogieman: Mister Ogawa, I have a few words for you and I hope you are listening. I am coming for what’s rightfully mine and you can’t stand in my way. The Big Boogie Bhampionship is what made me and I am what made the Big Boogie Bhampionship so relevant for Voltage. You are no Bhampion and the fans know this very well. You don’t have what it takes to step in the ring with The Woogieman and you don’t stand a chance against me. You better get this in your head come Sunday because I am calling you out. Face me like a man and put the title on the line.
Molly Waters: I guess that ends our interview! Some interesting developments for sure! We will see how Komatsu Ogawa is going to respond to this challenge!
(The camera cuts back to ringside)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
James Peters: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next we have a very interesting match against two newcomers! “Blood Money”, Dorian Cade and Kristopher Killbourne! Who will come out on top? Stay tuned to find out!
Rich Russillo: Looking forward to this one, guys!
Persephone (sarcastic) : Hooray….
(The arena suddenly goes dark, then a few moments later red lights start flashing all over the place. “Day of the Lords” by Joy Division blasts throughout the arena as a dark figure shows up on stage. He is Dorian Cade. He stands there for a moment, looking as focused as ever, but without paying attention to the fans)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Salem Massachusetts… weighing in at 270 pounds… “Blood Money’, DORIAN CADE!!!
Rich Russillo: I don’t know which is more spooky. Dorian Cade or his opponent tonight. Dorian made it very clear, he doesn’t care about Kristopher’s mind games. He is here tonight to fight. That’s it. He is going to let actions speak for him.
(Dorian Cade makes his way to the ring as he appears focused and ready to fight. The red lights are slowly fading as the arena lighting progressively goes back to normal. His tune fades out as well)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent! From Parts Unknown, weighing in at 261 pounds… Kristopher Killbourne!
(“Midnight Rider” by Memory Down blasts through the audio system as Kristopher Killbourne shows up on stage. He looks down to his opponent waiting for him in the ring and he cracks his knuckles, with a sick grin on his face. He then walks down the ramp as the fans are booing him heavily)
Persephone: 911… Yeah, I have to report a Serial Killer. His name is Kristopher Killbourne. No, I don’t have actual proof of him being a serial killer, but you have to trust me on this one alright? Besides he has Serial Killer written all over him! This guy is scary!
Rich Russillo: Get that phone away, Persephone! Sure, he might be scary but he is still an athlete! An Elitist just like everyone else on the roster.
James Peters: He does love to call his enemies “victims” though! I wonder why that is! We will see if Dorian Cade will be able to survive Kristopher Killbourne tonight or if he will be his first victim on his debut match here on Voltage!
(Kristopher stares down Dorian Cade as his tune fades out)
DING DING DING
James Peters: Here we go! The match finally starts and I for one can’t wait to see who is going to come out on top. Dorian Cade and Kristopher Killbourne are now squaring off in the middle of the ring, they both go for a lock up and it seems Killbourne has the upper hand in this exchange. Kristopher Killbourne uses his raw power to muscle Dorian all the way to the corner. The referee has to get in the way to separate the two… and he does! Kristopher takes two steps back and just laughs at his opponent! This is going to get bloody.
Rich Russillo: Dorian is not impressed by his mind games though, he charges in with vicious authority, Kristopher ducks underneath, Dorian bounces off the ropes… OOF! Shoulder block by Kristopher Killbourne as Dorian Cade falls on the mat, back first. Kristopher goes for an elbow drop but Dorian gets out of the way, nobody’s home! Dorian quickly gets up and he is now on the attack, hitting Kristopher Killbourne with a flurry of punches. Kristopher tries his best to cover up his face and he backs up all the way to the corner… Dorian now launches his opponent all the way to the opposite corner with a strong Irish whip… Kristopher bounces off the corner, BIG BOOT BY DORIAN CADE!
Persephone: Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark! And Kristopher does look like someone who could use some facial reconstruction alright! Dorian Cade goes for the quick pin attempt…
James Peters: Kickout! Way too early to bring this one home! Dorian Cade now has the upper hand, he locks Kristopher in a tight submission hold in the middle of the ring. It appears to be some sort of Hammerlock, it’s smart to take out his massive arms. Kristopher Killbourne wants none of that, he slowly gets back to his feet! OOF!!! What a shot to the guts of Dorian Cade! Kristopher Killbourne got out of the hold the old fashioned way, with raw power!
Rich Russillo: Now it’s payback time for Kristopher! Kick to the gut! He lifts Dorian up… PUMP HANDLE POWERSLAM!!! HE GOT ALL OF THAT!!! Dorian Cade bounces off the mat as Kristopher goes for the cover…
Persephone: And a Kickout. No way! I can’t believe he kicked out of ONE move! This guy is such an amazing athlete! Please, stop wasting my time with these fake pin attempts! If you pin someone, make sure they are dead for real… or dying at least!
James Peters: Such is wrestling, Persephone! Now it looks like Kristopher wants to return in kind and he applies a nerve hold to Dorian Cade, right in the center of the ring. Dorian Cade tries to reach for the ropes but he is too far away, he has to fight out of it! These two powerful Elitists are so evenly matched! It’s crazy! Dorian Cade now is back to his feet… elbow to the chest of Kristopher! He’s free! Goes for a DDT… Nope! Kristopher reverses it into an Irish Whip… Dorian bounces off the ropes… SLING BLADE BY KRISTOPHER KILLBOURNE! He nailed him with wicked accuracy.
Rich Russillo: Things are heating up now. Kristopher Killbourne is stepping up and now Dorian Cade might be in a world of trouble if he doesn’t find a way to contain him! Kristopher Killbourne is calling for it, he wants to hit his opponent with his Rolling Spear! He calls it the First Slice! Kristopher charges in… NO! DORIAN CADE PUT HIS KNEE UP AND GOT HIM RIGHT IN THE HEAD! UGLY, BUT STILL EFFECTIVE! KRISTOPHER KILLBOURNE IS STUNNED… CODEBREAKER BY DORIAN CADE!!! HE GOT HIM! HE CALLS THAT THE DEVIL’S DEAL! IS IT OVER?
Rich Russillo: And a Kickout yet again!
Persephone: I’m totally not impressed by what I’ve seen. Can you please calm down and stop screaming!? We are watching two brutes going at it, it’s not something worth losing your mind over! Besides, Kristopher was so slow in his movements, even a snail could have gotten out of the way in time!
Rich Russillo: Thank you for your opinion, Persephone. I’m sure everyone holds it in high regard. Back to the action! Dorian Cade somehow found a way to turn things around and he stopped the monster Killbourne right in his tracks. Now it’s the time to capitalize. Dorian Cade is calling for it… He is going for the Gutwrench Piledriver! He calls it Blood Money! He will end this! NO! I SPOKE TOO SOON! KRISTOPHER KILLBOURNE BROKE FREE OF THE HOLD AND HE LANDED BEHIND HIM! GERMAN SUPLEX!!! OOOF! DORIAN CADE LANDS HARD ON HIS NECK AND CRAWLS TO THE CORNER…
James Peters: Oh no! The corner is not where you want to be when you are in the ring with Kristopher Killbourne! Dorian Cade is now seated in the corner, trying to catch his breath as Kristopher charges in! THE CLEAN UP CONNECTS! A SICK THUD ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA AS KRISTOPHER KILLBOURNE JUST NAILED DORIAN CADE WITH A STIFF BIG BOOT TO THE FACE!
Persephone: Good night! This has got to be it!
James Peters: No! No way! He kicked out! Dorian is still in this fight! Not for long though because Kristopher is getting tired of this! He wants to end this for good! He is going for the Package Sitout Powerbomb… kick to the gut, he lifts Dorian up… Nope! Dorian is fighting back! Dorian Cade fighting back with a flurry of stiff shots to the face of Kristopher Killbourne who has no choice but to let him out! Dorian Cade falls on his feet, Kristopher is stunned… HE PICKS HIM UP YET AGAIN! THIS TIME HE CONNECTS! BLOOD MONEY! THE GUTWRENCH PILEDRIVER HITS! THE COVER!
(DING DING DING)
Bella Braxton: Here’s your winner… Blood Money, Dorian Cade!
James Peters: Man, that was a FIGHT! Two incredibly strong men going at it and both were evenly matched until the very end. I can see big things in the future of both of these guys. Dorian Cade got the win in the end but Kristopher Killbourne has nothing to be ashamed of. Dorian Cade said it earlier this week. He wasn’t impressed by Kristopher’s mind games, he wasn’t going to let him get under his skin and tonight he kept cool and fought fire with Fire.
Rich Russillo: Still! I don’t think this is over just yet. Kristopher Killbourne is going to come back with a vengeance and he is not going to let this loss affect his career in EAW. There’s much more pain to inflict and he knows it. Tonight he proved how ruthless and dangerous he can be.
Persephone: Yeah, yeah, I don’t know what match you guys were watching because all I saw was two sweaty brutes going at each other’s throats. Not saying it wasn’t entertaining. Quite the contrary actually. But this is as far from “talent” as we can go.
Rich Russillo: Well, that’s all for this match folks! Voltage returns after a short commercial break.
(The camera cuts to a commercial break promoting the next EAW Free Per View, Grand Rampage!)
(Voltage fades back in and backstage reporter, Sophia Clarke, is seen standing by.)
(The camera fades in to the backstage area. Sofia Clarke is in the limelight as she has a bright smile on her face and holds a mic in her hand before beginning to speak, clearly ready for a interview)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome, Grizzly Bear Rocco.
(The menacing Grizzly Bear Rocco who could practically towers over Sofia walks into frame. He has a disgruntled face on rather than anything else as Sofia still keeps that courageous smile of hers as she begins to speak)
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for joining me today, let’s go back to the lumberjack match that we saw earlier in the show for the Interwire Championship which was Ms. Extreme versus Shawn Sturgis which was in result of Shawn winning the Special Opportunity match you were in as well at Shock Value. You absolutely demolished Sturgis near the end of the match ruining his chances of becoming Interwire Champion, could you happen to let me in as to why you did that?
Grizzly Bear Rocco: I mean shouldn’t it be obvious, Sofia? As to why I did what I did? The thing that Shawn Sturgis did to push me over the edge and angered me was the sole reason why I did that. He took money, out of my pocket, I lost money because of him, losin’ doesn’t equal cash, winnin’ does, and you know what he did? He made me lose, he took money away from me rather than givin’ it to me and that’s rule one of why you shouldn’t even bother to set me off. And if that wasn’t ‘nough of a claim for you to hear, he took the title shot that should’ve been in my hands. Yeah you’re hearin’ me right that title shot belonged to ME! He deserved to get his ass kicked, he deserved that more than anything else that he thought was comin’ to him. I beat the shit out of both of them, they can’t deny much could they? That Sturgis kid swooped in and stole the victory from me that he did not earn.
Sofia Clarke: What are your plans then? What do you intend to do?
Grizzly Bear Rocco: You’re just asking the obvious to questions that have already been answered long ago and shouldn’t it be clear? I’m comin’ for Shawn Sturgis. I want his head on my wall of trophies as I prove as to why he should regret ever crossin’ me in the first place. And I know, I know exactly the truth. I know that me and Sturgis are gonna cross once more and he’s goin’ to push me to the limit that my anger exceeds, we’ll meet again and I’m sure of that. But until then, I focus my point to Grand Rampage.
???: Yeah, no.
(Both of the people in frame turn around as if Rocco wasn’t angry before he is now. Alun Wyn Jones slowly walks in. He had a smug face for a moment before turning it into a serious face as he walked up towards Rocco)
Alun Wyn Jones: I can tell you right now I’m not pleased as you’d expect after what happened out there. I know I might’ve felt on top of the world last week but that is not what I’ve come here to face you despite our differences and how you’re everything I despise. But I want to go back, our surely fabled history as the disgruntled couple who has no love lost between each other and apparently can never be split. I’m tired of being pushed around constantly, it happened at Shock Value, and it happened just those few moments ago when I was a lumberjack. I’m tired of it, and I won’t stand for it.
Grizzly Bear Rocco: Awwwwww… is the little baby cryin’? Do you want me to change your diaper? Look, we don’t get what we want here, we earn it. I thought you’d be wrestlin’ long enough to know that but clearly I have the smarts in this “relationship” that you’re always on about, just one of the many things I’m better at than you.
Alun Wyn Jones: You want to test that-
???: Shut up.
(The voice of Shawn Sturgis’ abruptly interrupts the argument as both of them seem angered as they crane their head to see the Fresh Prince of Mid-Air)
Shawn Sturgis: When will you guys be sufficient with your achievements? You did what you want, are you happy with it? Does it fill the void in your stomach that ate you alive since Shock Value? I failed, I wasted the Special Opportunity. But don’t take that as a sign of defeat because I will not stand for your actions.
Grizzly Bear Rocco: Oh please you know I did the work to get your little puny win at Shock Value. I wrecked you both from post to post and I kicked your asses, should that be “sufficient enough for you, you asshat.
Alun Wyn Jones: Oh yeah you’re complaining about that look who got the pinball here, ME! I should be the focal point because I’m the underdog, I’m the only one that matters here out of all of you!
Shawn Sturgis: Dont be so stupid you know there’s a reason why you were the one pinned because out of us you’re the weakest link.
Grizzly Bear Rocco: By my logic that means I’m the strongest here out of you two, that’s not goin’ to change either because I will do a repeat of Shock Value and even be the one pinnin’ you to make it more in my favor.
???: Alright, hold up.
(Voltage Commissioner Captain Charisma slowly walks into frame as he rubs his temple looking at all three competitors and sighing, he closes his eyes before slowly speaking)
Captain Charisma: Obviously you guys still hold a grudge with each other. But I’m not having a mess in the backstage area tonight just because you three don’t know how to settle an argument. If you guys truly do what to settle the score, you can do it in the Grand Rampage match itself.
(Silence is created for a moment as they all stare at Captain Charisma for a moment before each slowly giving a nod in response. Without saying anything else and rather just eyeing each other, all three men take the leave and separate. Matt has a relieved look on his face glad this situation was settled as it’s clear he didn’t want to have to split up a fight as the camera fades out)
(The camera fades into the arena where “Natural” by Imagine Dragons plays. Terry Chambers walks out, stopping at the edge of the ramp. . . before “We Appreciate Power” by Grimes echoes. The two are greeted by thunderous cheers as they look to one another with a smile, before heading down to the ring in unison.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TAG TEAM MATCH SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first, THE TEAM OF TERRRRYYYY CHAAAMMBEEEERRS. . . AND COOOONSUELLAA ROOOSEE AVVVAAAAA!!!!!
James Peters: While not a pairing many had expected to see a few months back, in my eyes they have been a welcome addition that has lightened the mood after seeing so much bloodshed. They are both great competitors and tonight we get to see them in tandem against a group that will hopefully offer them little reprieve.
Persephone: Real Beauty and the Beast vibe here, but that’s already stretching it because she’s about as beautiful as Charlie Marr’s brolic bald headass and he’s about as intimidating as those stupid Conjuring movies are.
(Terry and Consuela settle down in their corner before “Stabbing in the Dark” by Ice Nine Kills plays to a negative reaction from the crowd. Komatsu Ogawa walks with an imposing presence, making eye contact with few select people and performing strange movements as he heads towards the ring. His theme then fades out followed by “Never Fight A Man With A Perm” by Idles erupting from the loudspeaker to a warmer reaction. Alun Wyn Jones greets the Voltage crowd with confidence, walking with great strides to the ring and high-fiving fans. Komatsu pays very little attention to him as they meet, annoying AJW.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS. . . .THE TEAM OF KOOOOMAAATSUUU OGGAAWAAA, AND ALLUUUUNNN WYYYYNNN JOOOOOOONNNNEEESSS!!!!!
Rich Russillo: This is certainly a unique team-up, and one that I am considering to be a wild-card to win. Alun Wyn Jones, the surprising upstart who got his start a few weeks back on Voltage, and even made it into the Unique Opportunity Match at Shock Value! He wasn’t victorious but that showing was enough to prove to the EAW Universe that Alun should be someone to look out for, and Komatsu Ogawa, someone who has become known around these parts as one of the most twisted men in the ring with a knack for violence and a hunger for suffering. It’s like bread and butter.
Persephone: Or piss and shit.
Rich Russillo: :heart_eyes:
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell signals the beginning of the match, as we see Ms. 24/7 out as the first for her team and Alun Wyn Jones respectively for his. The two walk up to one another in the ring, and engage in a traditional collar-and-elbow tie-up. AJW despite being usually on the smaller side up against opponents has the weight and strength advantage here, and overpowers Consuela quickly with a headlock! But she pushes him against the ropes, forcing him to bounce off then come back! She goes for a clothesline – but Jones ducks it, and bounces off again! Consuela tries a back elbow! He ducks it again! He runs off and grabs her by the head! TORNADO DDT BRINGING AJW TO LIFE AND CONSUELA ROSE AVA TO THE GROUND! The first big move of this match landed by “The Welsh Dragon!”
Persephone: God that name is corny. As if this place wasn’t already filled to the brim with self-deprecating idiots with absolutely nothing to their name. Consuela despite being a silicone barbie doll still has at least some amount of weight when saying her name. She’s not doing too well right now, using the ropes to climb back up again. The Michelin Man in her corner is encouraging her, and the silicone barbie doll is back to her feet again, looking at AJW who respectfully waited for her to come back up. Probably shouldn’t have done that. Alun goes forward and sidesteps to her back, grabbing her from behind! GERMAN SUPLEX –
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA FLIPS AND LANDS ON HER FEET! Jones gets up immediately but Consuela throws a ROUNDHOUSE KICK THAT CLOCKS HIM ON THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! She runs off the ropes and comes back, LOOKING FOR A HURRICANRANA TO BRING THE ROOKIE TO THE GROUND! He falls back and now Consuela is up and fixes her hair to show she wasn’t fazed by Jones’ initial display. She’s looking pretty for the fans now – obviously not as gorgeous as one of our well-respected commentary members, but she does her best. She’s even looking at Terry, and I think we can see some blush forming on the sides of his cheeks! I’m not too much of a fan of this blossoming relationship considering a lot are formed by and are perpetuated through lies and deceit. It’s a bad business.
James Peters: What is also a bad business is Alun right now, who is being flustered by the veteran in the ring! Ogawa is extending his arm out, itching to get into this match – and Jones accepts it, tagging him in! The Serpent King is in right now AND RIGHT OFF THE BAT HE GOES AFTER CONSUELA, TAKING HER WITH PLENTY OF KICKS AND STRIKES! He’s assaulting her every arm, now he’s grabbing her arm and hooking her head! Trying a DDT – BUT CONSUELA PUSHES OGAWA TO HER CORNER! His spine goes right into that padded turnbuckle knocking the wind out of his sails, and Consuela follows up her attack with AN ENZIGURI TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! Ogawa drops to his knees, and Consuela looks over to Terry, nodding, and tagging him in! Chambers replacing his partner as he continues the relentless assault on Ogawa!
Persephone: The big bastard’s at it again. This unfit slob hammering away at Ogawa with clubbing blows to his back and chest, grabbing his arm over his head. . . AND LAUNCHING HIM WITH A SNAP SUPLEX THAT REVERBERATES THE ENTIRE RING! Chambers launches the pseudo-psychopath halfway across the ring and he’s dazed and confused. He probably doesn’t know left from right but to be fair he was made this way rather than Terry who was born that way. All he knows to do is go straight and that’s what he’s doing, right towards Ogawa who’s already loopy from that suplex! He sits in the corner, trying to gather what remains of his bearings. . . BUT TERRY WON’T LET THE POOR GUY BREATHE! HE’S COMING! OH GOD IT’S LIKE WATCHING HOW A BIG MAC IS MADE! 500 POUNDS OF SOLID FAT COME CRASHING INTO KOMATSU AND HE IS BARELY CONSCIOUS!
Rich Russillo: This is not looking good for the team of upstarts right now who aside from AJW have not really been able to land solid footing! Terry picks up the almost lifeless Ogawa into a fireman’s carry! HE’S LOOKING FOR A T-5! A T-5! WAIT! KOMATSU COMES BACK, HE’S ELBOWING TERRY RIGHT IN THE HEAD, SCRAMBLING FOR A WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS HOLD! He’s moving like a rapid-fire machine gun, allowing no recovery for Terry and stunning him enough to be dropped down! Komatsu now with STIFF knee strikes to the Barbaric Carnivore’s head from all angles! OH! THAT WENT RIGHT INTO HIS FACE! I THINK HE JUST BUSTED TERRY’S NOSE WITH THAT! AND HE DOESN’T STOP! DISCUS ELBOW SMASH HITTING CHAMBERS RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE, DID YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF THAT?
James Peters: It didn’t sound pretty, not one bit! I think you can even see a hint of a smile on his face! The man’s a sadist, he’s made that very clear but every time I see it I still get just a little bit unnerved.
Persephone: James Peters speak for “I’m a pussy.”
Rich Russillo: :whew: You know it!
James Peters: All that aside, Komatsu really is dangerous, despite not having the best track record. He doesn’t back down from a fight, even against someone like Terry, and he seems to be doing a grand job of it, RUNNING INTO HIM! DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER! TERRY IS ON HIS KNEES NOW, KOMATSU IS SLOWLY BREAKING HIM DOWN! He’s inching, waiting for his next moment. . . HE LIFTS TERRY! Komatsu showing off his strength, placing him in that Argentine backbreaker rack position! He’s getting ready for the Hemotoxin! TERRY SLIPS BEHIND HIM! TERRY WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX, ONCE AGAIN DISPLAYING HIS BEASTIAL PROWESS! Komatsu flies once more, losing the momentum he was gaining as Terry looks at him with anger! He isn’t over the fact Komatsu busted his nose, AND HE’S RUNNING STRAIGHT FOR HIM, CHARGING! HE HITS A BACK ELBOW! AND JUMPS UP! RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE –
Persephone: KOMATSU DUCKS THE LEG! He could’ve been severely injured there from that kind of head trauma – getting kicked by a horse is no joke! Ogawa used his energy though too much, maybe only enough to barely escape – and Terry still isn’t waiting! He’s brushing up against him, raining down brutal fists to the back of his head and kicks to his left leg. Chambers once again, probably letting his emotions get the better of him, and in this case it will probably cost him and make him do stupid shit. WAIT! KOMATSU BURSTS OUT OF THE CORNER, LOOKING FOR A RUNNING LARIAT! MASAKARI!
Rich Russillo: TERRY DUCKS, AND KOMATSU TURNS AROUND – RIGHT INTO A BIG BOOT BY TERRY SENDING HIM DOWN! He goes for the cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!. . . .TWOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Kickout by Ogawa! He’s not going down without the fight he is constantly hungry for! Terry is back up to his feet again, and picks up his opponent once more! He’s looking for that T-5 again, probably thinking that if he could land this he could take Ogawa out of commission for this match for good! WAIT! TERRY WAS TOO CLOSE TO OGAWA’S CORNER AND HE TAGS IN ALUN WYN JONES SNEAKILY! TERRY DOESN’T REALIZE IT YET! JONES RUSHES IN FROM BEHIND! KICKED OUT OF TOUCH, THE SICK KICK CONNECTS RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF CHAMBERS’ HEAD! He drops Komatsu like a sack of bricks as he rolls out of the ring, leaving Jones to pick up the pieces from where he left off! Smart play! Guess you were right in a sense, Peters!
James Peters: Exactly, he’s going to capitalize now or else suffer the consequences! Alun goes straight for the dazed Terry, grabbing him – THEN HITTING HIM WITH A THUNDEROUS EUROPEAN UPPERCUT PRACTICALLY TAKING HIS JAW OUT! He calls it the “Remain” Uppercut! He follows it with another! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! Sequential uppercuts by Jones taking the wind out of Terry’s sails each and every time! Terry is up against the ropes and the referee is trying to break it up but doesn’t need to as Alun goes back. . . THEN CHARGES! TERRY SENDS ALUN OVER THE TOP ROPE BY PULLING IT DOWN! He uses his own speed against him, and Terry now sees an opportunity! He looks to the other side, then to his front. . . running, bouncing off, AND CHARGING! SUICIDE DIVE!
Persephone: JONES CATCHES TERRY! WHAT THE FUCK?! AND HE DROPS HIM DOWN ON THE PADDED FLOOR! BREAD OF HEAVEN TO THE OUTSIDE! This crowd just gasped and rightfully so, who knew that skinny sad boy could do that?! He just took them down with the “Bread of Heaven”, a dumbass name but quite an effective move, as it just took Terry by surprise and planted him like a strike of thunder! Jones now resting on the barricade, catching his breath for the moment while Terry seems to be as dead as Chris Elite’s career! Alun still following it up, lifting the practically knocked out Chambers by his head then rolling him back into the ring and following in suit. He’s there now, lying in wait as Consuela looks undeniably worried!
Rich Russillo: KOMATSU OGAWA FROM BEHIND CONSUELA! HE GRABS HER BY THE FOOT AND PULLS HER OFF THE SIDE! JESUS! She lands face first on the apron! She should be barely conscious right now after a blow like that. . . Komatsu now following it up with these rabid-dog like attacks on Ms. 24/7! Elbow to the back of her head! Shoot kick to her chest! THEN HE LAUNCHES HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Ogawa practically licking his lips here, definitely wanting to make a statement tonight! He turns back to look at his partner who is shaking his head, clearly not liking how Ogawa is going through with this! Still, he knows he has a victory here and so he’s going for it, looking at Terry who is on all-fours in the middle of the ring! BUT JONES BRINGS HIM BACK DOWN THEN TRAPS THE ARM BETWEEN HIS LEGS! DESIGN FOR LIFE! DESIGN FOR LIFE! JONES HAS THE LEBELL LOCK ON TERRY CHAMBERS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH ALMOST NOWHERE TO GO! Chambers, previously unresponsive is now gasping for air and fighting for his life, as he now is trying to crawl over to the ropes, trying to get a rope break! AJW is really bringing it tonight against two of Voltage’s best! Color me impressed!
James Peters: He’s showing his dexterity and his affinity for this sport, and it’s paying him dividends tonight as he perfectly sets this up so that Terry is almost tired out and exhausted! Chambers is trying his best to crawl towards the ropes but it’s to no avail! He might not tap, but he will pass out from the pain if this keeps going on! TERRY IS INCHING CLOSER! HE’S ALMOST THERE!
Persephone: CHECK OUTSIDE! KOMATSU IS RUSHING IN, GOING FOR THE MASAKARI AGAIN! RUNNING LARIAT – CONSUELA CATCHES HIM! HE CATCHES HIM AND PLANTS HIM ON THE FLAT STEEL STEPS WITH A SPANISH FLY! GODDAMN! THAT WAS QUITE A MOVE! I didn’t expect the lesser bimbo Ava to have it in her but she outwitted Ogawa! She’s back up again, grabbing the high-pain-tolerance holding Komatsu by his head! THEN HE WRAPS HIS ARMS! SIDESLAM BACKBREAKER! Her knee hit exactly where the steel steps made contact and now Ogawa is looking like he just got out of a bar with Asian flush, no women, and no friends! The boy’s as red as a tomato and as red as when he came into this company like a talentless hack!
James PEters: AND TERRY IN THE RING, AT THE SAME TIME, IS DRAGGED BACK BY ALUN WYN JONES! HE HAS HIM THE LEBELL LOCK – WAIT NO! He didn’t shift his body right and now Terry is facing him, getting up to his feet! LOOK AT HIS STRENGTH! HE’S LIFTED HIM UP FROM A SCHOOLBOY TRIANGLE POSITION, AND IS NOW GRABBING JONES’ OTHER LEG! HE CHARGES FORTH TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE AND POWERBOMBS HIM DIRECTLY INTO IT! HIS HEAD VIOLENTLY CRASHES AGAINST THE MIDDLE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS TERRY LANDED IT RIGHT ONTO ALUN’S HEAD! LOOK AT HIM! HE’S SEEING STARS RIGHT NOW!
Rich Russillo: Just as I was rooting for him, Alun slips up and is now essentially lethargic! His eyes seemed to have rolled to the back of his head, as he spills out onto the outside! Terry, exhausted, grabs the ropes, and sees Consuela making an example out of Komatsu, showing exactly why you shouldn’t try any under-handed tactics against her! She looks towards Terry with a knowing expression, sending him into the ring! Komatsu rolls in, barely able to take in what is happening all around him, AND TERRY GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND CLOCKS HIM WITH A VICIOUS RIGHT HAND! It spins Komatsu around – AND CONSUELA RUNS FOR IT! LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE! KNEE OF DEATH DISMANTLING THE SERPENT KING’S JAW AND KOMATSU FALLS. . . RIGHT INTO TERRY CHAMBERS’ ARMS! HE PICKS HIM UP! HE IS AT THEIR MERCY HERE!
James Peters: T-5! T-5! TERRY DISLODGES KOMATSU FROM HIS SHOULDERS AND DEVASTATINGLY SLAMS HIM FACE-FIRST INTO THE MAT! HE IS OUT! O-U-T! Terry goes for the cover while Consuela sits on the middle rope, looking on with a smile!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Natural” by Imagine Dragons plays throughout the speakers as Terry is helped to his feet by Consuela. The crowd cheers as they smile at one another before the referee raises both of their arms into the sky. Komatsu is knocked out and Alun Wyn Jones looks on from the outside, his head down and sitting against the barricade.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER. . . . THE TEAM OF TERRRY CHAAMBERRSS, AND CONSUELLLA ROOOSEE AAAVVAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
James Peters: Well that was a fight that I really wasn’t expecting! Everyone gave it their all and it truly was quite the clash of styles! Terry, the powerhouse tried his best with his signature style and it worked, leaving Komatsu very damaged despite his supposed pain tolerance! Consuela, despite being shown up slightly by AJW surprisingly in the beginning proved exactly why she is a staple towards the end by outmatching Ogawa and hitting a brutal Spanish Fly and Knee of Death!
Persephone: She’s not even that hot but oh well. I guess if I had to say something good about this match it would be Jones, who even surprised me and I don’t get surprised very easily. In spite of his disgusting beard, boring personality and stupid looking face he pulled out some pretty surprising moves and even made it close to making the Michelin Man tap out! It could’ve ended very differently had he not fucked up towards the end, but oh well guess it shows that your levels of depression don’t equate to your level of skill.
Rich Russillo: You wow me everyday with your way with words.
James Peters: :dahell:
(The camera cuts back to Terry and Consuela in the ring. Consuela and Terry high-five, then follow it up with a special handshake, much to the adulation of the crowd. The two then appear to talk for a few seconds before Terry looks at her with a confused expression. She gives that warm smile once more and it breaks his defences as he sighs with a grin. Terry then bends down and lifts Consuela up, similar to an Electric Chair position except the people know she won’t get hurt! They march around the ring, cheering, while Komatsu and Alun walk out. Komatsu isn’t facing them while Alun is definitely amused, even offering some woos of his own.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for HelloFresh featuring Kassidy Heart. Gawd’s Gift is shown inside the spacious kitchen of Case de Gawd unboxing her HelloFresh kit and oooohinng and ahhhhing over the fresh ingredients including natural, farm raised shrimp! :wow: )
(As Voltage returns, and the commentators are heard talking in the background.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to this episode of EAW’s hottest weekly program, Voltage! Coming up next, an exciting bout between two of EAW’s most promising young upstarts, Colby Sol and Jesse “The Virtuous” Barlow! The amatuer boxing background of Sol meets the vicious and technical style of “The Virtuous” one. We are presented with a very interesting clash of styles tonight. Both men utilizing a background of combat skills forged by traveling the globe and perfecting their craft.
Rich Russillo: You got that right, James. Both men will bring extreme athleticism and high level ring IQ to the tabler tonight. Not only a clash of in ring styles, but the collision of two polar opposite personalities. On one side, you have Colby Sol, the sarcastic brawler with a skilled boxing background. Sol’s return to EAW can be defined by one word, commitment. An-
Persephone: Commitment? I believe the work you’re looking for is mediocrity, and that’s being GENEROUS. Sol’s attempts to live up to his brother’s reputation and accolades are nothing short of pathetic. Why do you think he flunked out of EAW the first time, Bich?
Rich Russillo: Uh, once again, it’s Rich, but you do bring up a good point in that he did fail in his first run in EAW. Though what is a man who doesn’t learn from his mistakes, acknowledge them, and implement that knowledge into his upcoming obstacles? Is he any man at all? I commend Sol on coming back to EAW and putting his all on the table. However, at times, that nonchalant attitude has worked against him and brought him more trouble than he could have imagined. Sol must overcome self doubt before tackling the task of EAW’s ranks. Regardless, he’s faced with an incredibly tough challenge tonight in Jesse Barlow. Barlow isn’t bound by the same chains Sol is, Jesse doesnt give a fuck about anyone, or anything. Barlow’s only goal is to inflict as much pain as possible on those he deems “The scum of the earth”. This insidious and malicious nature is implemented through his raw and unforgiving arsenal of strikes, stomps, and suplexes. Barlow’s got an opportunity tonight to put the hurt on Colby Sol, will he make the most of it, or will Colby Sol’s hard work prove triumphant in his returning run to EAW? All the action is going to unfold next!
(“I Am… All of Me” by Crush 40 begins to play as Colby Sol presents himself to the Voltage audience, proudly waving a flag with an orange heart on it. Sol entering to a positive reception from the audience in attendance, supporting the proud Pensylavnian.)
Persephone: I don’t care what either of you say, this slimy sarcast couldn’t put a W in the record books if his life depended on it. Once a dropout, always a dropout. Nothing like Rex McSexy…It’s not rocket science, Sol is bound to get caught up in his emotions and run his EAW career into the ground.
James Peters: I disagree, Persephone. Sol may have failed once, though he has a chance to revitalize his momentum tonight. Weekly matches are the perfect opportunity to rebuild yourself and your momentum. Every competitor dreams of the spotlight, main event an FPV, and being a tri-brand superstar! But it’s not that simple, work must be put in and growth must be shown to accomplish this, and these weekly shows are the perfect opportunity for any competitor looking to shoot their name to the stars. Besides, it takes a big man to admit his mistakes, but an even bigger man to work towards correcting those mistakes. Colby Sol let himself down and didn live up to his promised momentum, but he’s returned and has claimed he’s ready to put it all on the line to rebuild himself and his career in EAW. Tonight, we’ll see if these promises were empty, or, if his words will hold true!
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLES MATCH, SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
(Crowd repeat “ONE FALL!”)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, WEIGHING IN AT 223 POUNDS….COLLLBBYYYYYYYYYYYYYY SOOOOOLLLLLL!!!!
(Colby Sol rolls in the ring, steps on the second rope, and raises his flag to the skies, soaking in the energy from the Voltage crowd.Sol smiles and bows to the crowd, returning their love with mutual respect. You love to see it)
(As Sol removes his entrance gear, “The Path” by Senses Fail begins to play as Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin’s vile presence enters the arena, grimfully staring down the ramp at Colby Sol, you can feel the malice in the air.)
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow’s bad attitude only seems to be getting worse, which is not news for Colby Sol. Barlow doesn’t care how you look at him, he’s always willing to bend the rules in his favor, or use any method it takes to win. Preferably the method inflicting as much pain and agony as possible. But don’t let this bad attitude make you think he’s all bark, because there’s certainly just as much bite. His refined and deadly arsenal of suplexes, backbreakes, and submissions has ended many men.
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, WRESTLING OUT OF HOBOKEN, NEWWWWW JERSEYYYY, WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS…….WITH HANNAH MARIIIINNNNNNNNN…..JESSSSEEEEEEEEE “THHEEEEEEE VIRTUUUUOUSSSSSSSSSS” BAAARRRRRRRLLOOOOWWWWWWW!!!
James Peters: BOTH MEN ARE HERE AND READY TO GO! ARE YOU READY RICH!?!?!
Rich RussillO: BY GAWD, I’m READY JAMES!
JAMES PETERS: PERSEPHONE, ARE YOU READY!?!?!
Persephone: Whatever you dirty rat, I’m for whatever it takes to get you boobs to shut the hell up.
James Peters: Oh…WELL I’M READY, LET’S DO THIS!
(The referee signals to the timekeeper for the ring of the bell, indicating the beginning of the match.)
DING! DING! DING!
James Peters: HERE WE GO! This bout officially underway, Barlow and Sol set for one fall. Both men off to a slow start, circling each other, pawing at one another, trying to gage any early advantage possible. Barlow circles around the back attempting a roll up, but Sol quickly escapes, rolls through and fires back with an enziguri, which Barlow avoids, and merely laughs at Sol. The disrespect shown from Barlow early, he’s attempting to incite Colby Sol. Sol makes his way back to his feet, AND SHOWS BARLOW THE MIDDLE FINGER! FLICKING JESSE OFF, A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE! Barlow laughs and claps, admiring the disrespect…THEN QUICKLY DELIVERING A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO COLBY SOL, RIGHT TO THE JAW! BARLOW EXPLODING INTO THE UPPERCUT, KICKING INTO HIGH GEAR, NOW HOISTING SOL UP FROM HIS WAIST, AND DROPPING HIM WITH A BACKBREAKER!!! MY GOD WHAT A NASTY MOVE, THAT KNEE DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE SPINE!
Rich Russillo: Barlow playing expert mind games, dictating the pace of the match early. He’ll lull you to sleep with one pace, then dislocate your jaw with the next. All within a span of a minute. What a talent! Barlow now STOMPING THE HEAD OF SOL! BEFORE HE HAD ANY TIME TO RECOVER, BARLOW SAID NO, AND VICIOUSLY STOMPED THE LIGHTS OUT! Barlow once again offered no quarter, no time to recover, dragging Colby Sol to the outside of the ring and dumping his body on the floor….What the hell could Barlow be thinking?!?! Taking several steps back, eyeing Sol with evil intent…WHAT THE HELL…HE’S GONNA CURB STOMP HIM ON THE FLOOR, DON’T DO IT, PLEASE DEAR GOD….SOL GET UP…BARLOW GOING FOR THE STOMP, BUT COLBY AVOIDS IT AND LAUNCHES BARLOW INTO THE AIR, PERHAPS GOING FOR A POWERBOMB ON THE FLOOR, HE’S IN POSITION…COLBY IS GOING TO DROP HIM…BUT BARLOW NARROWLY ESCAPES AND GETS HIS FEET BACK ON THE ARPON, WHERE SOL FOLLOWS HIM. Exchanging punches, bo0th men attempting to knock each other off the arpon…BARLOW WITH A KICK TO THE KNEE, DROPPING SOL, NOW BARLOW FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A CURB STOMP ON THE APRON!!! JESUS CHRIST!!! DRIVING THE SKULL OF SOL DOWN ON THE UNFORGIVING APRON WITH THAT STOMP!!!!
James Peters: HE CAN END IT HERE…WHAT THE HELL…NOW LIFTING SOL BACK TO HIS FEET, THEY’RE STILL ON THE APRON, WHAT THE HELL IS BARLOW THINKING…JESSE BARLOOWWWWW DROPPING COLBY SOL OFF THE APRON WITH A SUPLEXXX!!!! MY GOD, A SUPLEX OFF THE APRON, HOW THE HELL IS SOL GOING TO RECOVER FROM THAT!!! BARLOW’s HURT HIMSELF AS WELL, BUT HE’S ROLLED SOL BACK INTO THE RING, LOOKING FOR A FINISH!!!….BARLOW LOOKING FOR THE “ABOLISHER” THAT NASTY SPEAR! LOOKING TO CUT COLBY IN HALF….BUT COLBY NEARLY TAKES THE HEAD OFF BARLOW WITH A LARIAT!!! HOFKEJNEDIFKDOLO!!!! HOW IS HE STILL ALIVE AFTER THAT SUPLEX OFF THE ARPON!! HE’S MORE THAN ALIVE, HE’S JUST CLAIMED THE LIFE OF JESSE BARLOW’S JAW! SOL MUS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF BARLOW NOW, WHILE HE’S GOT MOMENTUM ON HIS SIDE! COLBY NOW LIFTING BARLOW BACK TO HIS FET, AND DELIVERING A KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE, THEN FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER LARIAT!!! WHAT A COMBO FROM SOL!! COLBY SOL FOR THE WIN, HEADING IN FOR THE PIN!!….
James Peters: KICKOUT FROM JESSE BARLOW!!!
Rich Rusillo: HOW THE HELL IS HE STILL ALIVE!?!?!?
Persephone: HE SHOULD BE DOWN AND OUT!!! HE SHOULD’VE STAYED DOWN, HE’S ONLY GOING TO RECEIVE MORE PUNISHMENT NOW! WHAT AN IDIOT! Colby Sol now letting out a sigh of disappointment, he cant believe Barlow is still in this bout, he knows that should’ve ended it right there. BUT HE’S NOT DONE YET, HE’S GONNA PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN, HE SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER, SIGNALING FOR THE END….COULD HE BE LOOKING FOR THE “SOL REAPER” THAT HORRID BUTTERFLY BACKBREAKER….
Rich Russillo: I BELIEVE HE IS, THIS WOULD SURELY BE THE END FOR JESSE BARLOW….COLBY SOL LIFTS HIM UP, HE’S GOT HIM IN POSITION, HES GONNA END IT HERE…SOL WITH THE SO- WAIT BARLOW ESCAPES AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE, HOW THE HELL DID HE DO IT, NOW REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BIG MOVE- BUT COLBY SOL NAILS HIM WITH AN ENZIGURI!! RIGHT TO THE JAW!! NOW SOL LIFTS HIM BACK UP FOR THE “SOL REAPER”!!!.. AND HE NAILS IT!!! FIFJDOEKWEKJFIO!!! THE SOL REAPER SHATTERING THE SPINE OF JESSE BARLOW!!! HIS IS SURELY IT!!! WAIT WHAT THE HELL…. WHY ISN’T HE GOING FOR THE PIN!!! COLBY SOL EYEING THE TOP ROPE, HE NEEDS TO PIN HIM, HE COULD’VE ENDED IT RIGHT THERE….SOL LIFTING THE BODY OF BARLOW AND DRAGGING HIM TO THE TURNBUCKLES, NOW LOOKING TO ASCEND TO THE TOP ROPE, THE HIGH RED DISTRICT…OH NO…HE’S NOT LOOKING FOR THE SUPER SOL REAPER..THIS COULD END THE CAREER OF JESSE BARLOW, COLBY SOL WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN THIS MATCH, EVEN IF IT KILLS HIM!!! SOL LOOKING FOR THE “SUPER SOL REAPER” THIS WILL SURELY END IT, HE’S GOT HIM IN POSITION…WHAT THE HELL, HANNAH MARIN JUMPS ON THE APRON, ATTEMPTING TO DISTCART COLBY SOL, WHO DELAYS HIS ATTENTION FOR A SPLIT SECOND…NOW BARLOW RAKING THE EYES OF COLBY SOL, ESCAPING THE GRASP AND DROPPING BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS, NOW DELIVERING “NEVERMORE”!!! RIGHT TO THE FACE, THAT JAW SHATTERING KNEE TO COLBY SOL, WHAT A MOVE FROM BARLOW, NOW DRAGGING THE CORPSE OF SOL BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS, FALLING HARD!!! BARLOW SCALING THE ROPES, HE’S IN THE NO FLY ZONE!! HE FLIESSSSSS WITH THE “FEAR OF GOD” NFJIFNSIFNQOOP!!!! DELIVERING THE 650 SPLASH TO PERFECTION!!! BARLOW GOING FOR THE PIN!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: BARLOW DID IT!!!! JESSE BARLOW COME AWAY WITH THE WIN!!THAT WAS A DIRTY WIN FOR JESSE BARLOW, USING HANNAH MARIN TO HELP HIM, BUT WHAT DID WE EXPECT!?!?!
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, JESSSEEEEE BAAARRRLOOWWWW!!!!
Rich Russillo: What a match. A tough fought match between both men, but in the end only one could walk away with the win, and that one is Jesse Barlow. Incredible effort from Colby Sol, who looks devastated in the ring, leaving his sweat, blood, and tears in the ring, and coming away with a loss. He must feel horrible. Putting forth this much effort just to be cheated out of a win, what a shame.
(Colby Sol with a look of sadness in his face, then this look quickly turns sour into a look of rage, races up the ramp and meets Jesse Barlow before he can make his exit.)
Persephone: NOW SOL ATTACKING JESSE, CHASING HIM UP THE RAMP AND NOW BEATING HIM DOWN!!! A STORM OF PUNCHES AND STOMPS FUELED BY RAGE AND DISAPPOINTMENT, HANNAH MARIN LOOKS HORRIFIED!!! The referees attempt to separate Colby Sol, who is seething with rage. Hannah Marin glances at Colby with a look of arrogance, then makes her way out assisting Jesse Barlow. I assure you, this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Colby Sol.
Rich Russillo: Thanks for sticking with us through this chaos, and voltage with return momentarily with more action
(Voltage fades backstage and Charlie and Jordie Marr are seen heading in the direction of Captain Charisma’s office. They’re walking hand-in-hand and Charlie is dressed for his match later on tonight. Charlie walks with a purpose and he has a scowl across his handsome face. Jordie looks a little concerned, but as always she doesn’t really say much. She’s just there to support her husband and be a good little wifey. They finally stop in front of Captain Charisma’s door, but before Charlie can barge in, Jordie puts a hand on his arm.)
Jordie Marr: Now babe, this could backfire on you. You spent this whole week putting Captain Charisma down, and believe me, he totally deserves it. He is absolutely cucking you when it comes to the EAW World Championship, but that probably means he isn’t going to appreciate you slamming into his office and making demands… :lupe:
(Charlie rakes a hand down his beard and gives Jordie a look. Deep down, Charlie knows his wife is right. Captain Charisma isn’t a fan of Charlie’s and the Voltage Commissioner definitely wasn’t going to appreciate Charlie walking into his office. But he also didn’t really give a shit, because he is Charlie Marr.)
Charlie Marr: I am sick of the biased ship Captain Cumstain is running right now and I’m not going to be a victim anymore. I’m going in there and I’m taking back my power, and I am going to make that motherfucker right the injustices that have been done to me as of late. I should be a two-time EAW Champion right now, looking ahead to main-eventing Pain for Pride, but now I have to live in a world where someone like Malcolm Jones, a man who’s not even fit to hold my fucking jockstrap, let alone another world championship, get a chance to stamp his ticket?! No. Fuck no. It doesn’t work that way. I have carried this goddamn brand on my back for two seasons now. Malcolm Jones does not get to take half a fucking year off, show up only when it benefits him, cost me my championship, simp for a dirty little whore, and then beat the same whore for the EAW World Championship and headline his third straight Pain for Pride. No. No. No. No. No. No.
(Jordie lets out a sigh and rubs Charlie’s arms before taking his hands.)
Jordie Marr: I totally get that baby, for sure. No one wants another low point of a main event for Pain for Pride and obviously everyone wants to see you get that honor. You deserve to be the champion heading into the season finale, and anyone who doesn’t see that needs to get their eyes checked. You are so strong and perfect inside the ring, and there is no one in this company who can do what you do. You are Voltage, and you should be the champion instead of that fugly slut with bad hair extensions.
Charlie Marr: I’m glad you agree.
(Charlie walks into Captain Charisma’s office after that, with Jordie waiting outside. Captain Charisma looks a little startled to have someone walk into his office unannounced, but his expression changes to an amused one when he sees that it’s Charlie.)
Captain Charisma: What can I do for you, Charlie?
Charlie Marr: I think that’s a question you already know the answer too, but here’s one you need to answer for me. Do you actually have to fucking balls to right what went wrong at Shock Value?
(Captain Charisma rolls his eyes.)
Captain Charisma: I’m not going to entertain your bitching and whining about what happened at Shock Value. If you ask me, you got exactly what you deserved, and you were the one who started with Malcolm in the match. He was doing a decent job of calling the match fairly until you decided to continuously provoke him and take a shot. What was he supposed to do after that, Charlie?
Charlie Marr: :skip: Do the fucking job he was sent to do, that’s what. You know that he fucking cost me the match on purpose. I never had a fair chance to win my championship back… a championship I never should have fucking lost! I get that cucks like you are afraid of alpha men like me dominating the competition and reaching heights that will never be surpassed, but I’m not going to let you fuck around with me and hold me back. You need to change the Grand Rampage match and make it a triple threat. I deserve that match and a fair chance to beat the shit out of the two people who have been conspiring against me since Road to Redemption.
(A smirk crosses the face of Captain Charisma.)
Captain Charisma: The match is set in stone and the contract has been signed. I will not be making any changes to it. If you want another shot at the title, then you’ll have to earn it like everyone else.
(Anger flashed in Charlie’s eyes and he clenched his fists to his side.)
Charlie Marr: What did you just say?
Captain Charisma: I said if you wanted another shot at the world title, you need to earn it. There’s a match called Grand Rampage, and I’m sure you’re familiar wi-
Charlie Marr: Yes, I’m fucking familiar with Grand Rampage! I hold the record for the most eliminations.
Captain Charisma: Then you should be able to follow up last year’s performance and take it one step further, and win. You win Grand Rampage and you will find yourself facing a world champion of your choosing come Pain for Pride.
Charlie Marr: Bullshit. That’s bullshit and you know it. I shouldn’t have to jump through fucking hoops to get a fair fucking match for a title I never really lost in the first place.
Captain Charisma: Take it or leave it, because there’s no other match for you at the moment.
(Charlie blinks and finally rakes an angry hand through his beard. The conversation did not go how he expected it to go. He shoots a glare at Captain Charisma and storms out of the office, slamming the door behind him. He almost forgets that Jordie is waiting on him and she has to hurry to catch up to him.)
Jordie Marr: I take it didn’t go well?
Charlie Marr: He won’t change the match but threw me in the Grand Rampage.
Jordie Marr: You almost won that last year…
Charlie Marr: Well this year I will win it.
Jordie Marr: And you’ll get to crush Rex’s dreams of main eventing a third straight Pain for Pride.
(Charlie stops walking and thinks about that for a second. He looks down at Jordie and gives her a smirk.)
Charlie Marr: A silver lining.
(Jordie smiles back at her sexy, gorgeous husband and the two disappear down the hallway.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for GNC brand multivitamins featuring the poster child of health and wellness, Xander Payne.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the backstage area where teammates and friends, Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price, are seen standing. They are heading towards the entrance area, both women are looking focused on their match against Dr. Bethany Blue and Charlie Marr. They come to a stop once they’re at the entrance area and turn to face one another. They launch into their secret handshake that ends with them popping their hips together and Sarah flashes Sierra a confident smile.)
Sarah Price: Tonight’s match is huge for us. Can you picture the look of absolute horror on the faces of Charlie and the FAKE doctor once we pin them?? I can and that has kept me smiling all weekend as we’ve been watching all these great shows. Silencing Charlie for a second straight week, and hushing up Bethany is just going to cap off an amazing weekend.
Sierra Bradford: They definitely need to have their egos put in check, and more than anything, I want to show everyone that I would have just as easily beaten Charlie without Malcolm’s assistance. Each week adds more to my story, and the chapter we write tonight is going to put us firmly in the conversation for a future championship shot.
(Sarah twirls a strand of platinum blonde hair around her finger and gives Sierra a thoughtful look.)
Sarah Price: What do you think they’re going to do with the Unified Tag Team Championships right now? Fire and Ice have made their intentions for Grand Rampage very clear. Raven and Minerva will going to war over the Universal Women’s Championship and we both know Rex has been talking about getting back to the Pain for Pride main event for some time now. He’s in Grand Rampage. So what happens to their tag team title shot?
Sierra Bradford: That’s a good question. I’ve been wondering about which team is going to get the nod to challenge the champions first.
Sarah Price: :lupe: Well I know that Drakey is one of the champions now, but that’s not going to hold you back from accepting a match if we’re given a shot are you? We are rising stars here in the land of Elite, and we both know it’s only a matter of time before we are given the responsibility of stepping up and challenging for a championship. You really pushed that bully Darcy to her limit back at King of Elite, and I’m just as good as the guy who’s about to compete for the New Breed Championship.
(Sierra smiles confidently at Sarah.)
Sierra Bradford: Trust me, my career is my priority, but I’m going to take it one step at a time. Should the opportunity arise for us to challenge for the belts, I’m definitely taking it regardless of who the champions are. SASS can’t be stopped and we won’t be denied, and I know that as soon as we defeat Charlie and Bethany, champions in their own right, our names are going to be on everyone’s lips. I’m excited about the potential we have a team and for what we could do for the tag team division, especially when female teams have been so dominant recently. I would love to follow in the footsteps of Heavenly Hell and the Jaded Hearts.
???: Then do it. Unless you’re scared.
(The reigning 2020 King of Elite strolls into the picture, somehow looking immaculate despite the hellacious match he had last night against Lethal Consequences. The Visual Prophet has his Unified Tag Team Championship strapped across his waist and once he sees Sierra, he gives her a smile filled with nothing but judgement.)
The Visual Prophet: Those eyebrows… :wow:
(Sarah narrows her eyes at Viz.)
Sarah Price: Do you need something, Viz? Or are you here to be rude on behalf of the Petty Police?
(Viz lowers his shades and gives Sarah a delightful smile.)
The Visual Prophet: Ooooh. Now I see why Drizzy has a picture of you on his phone.
Sierra Bradford: :skip:
The Visual Prophet: You do have a little sass in you. No ass, as much as I HATE to agree with Charles on anything, but the sass is certainly there.
Sierra Bradford: What do you want, Viz?
(Viz snarls at her, and pats the championship at his waist.)
The Visual Prophet: While MY best friend Drizzy rests back at the hotel and recuperates from his Dome of Death match, I decided to come back to my old stomping grounds and see just what kind of competition this brand has right now. I just could NOT help but overhear you two birds squawking about the Unified Tag Team Championships and what’s going to happen now that Fire and Ice have decided to be extremely self-centered and focus on their solo accomplishments for now. Obviously a rematch with Heavenly Hell is out of the question, so it really does make me wonder who Drizzy and Vizzy will be facing in their first championship defense. Perhaps Charles Marr and the good doctor would like to step up? Or perhaps the two of you would like the opportunity.
Sarah Price: Of course we want the opportunity, but we both know that we have to earn it. After we do that tonight, then we’ll be ready to throw our names into the mix.
(Viz focuses his curious eyes on Sierra. His gaze is so intense that she nearly backs away from him. To her credit, Sierra does stand her ground but Viz has already picked up on the hesitation.)
The Visual Prophet: What do you think, cupcake? Do you think you’re ready to be in the ring against the King of Elite AND the reigning World Heavyweight Champion? I know that you and Drake are awfully cozy when he’s not googling Sarah Price pictures on his phone when he thinks no one is looking.
Sarah Price: :dahell:
(Sierra gives Viz a weary look.)
Sierra Bradford: I’m ready to be in the ring with whomever I’m placed in a match against. Right now, my career has just gotten started and everything is a learning experience.
The Visual Prophet: That’s a pretty neutral answer, but not surprising. You tried to pick a fight with someone who sits above your paygrade and got your ass thoroughly beaten. Darcy May Morgan is not the one you want to mess with, and should you two decide to try and follow in Heavenly Hell’s footsteps, you will both find yourselves on the receiving end of yet another beating. But don’t fret, my dears. There is indeed a bright future for SASS here in Elite Answers Wrestling. There is no doubt in King Viz’s mind that championship gold is in your future. It’s just not going to come at the expense of the greatest set of best friends to ever hold tag team gold… Drizzy and Vizzy!
Sarah Price: You sound real sure of yourself, Viz. You don’t even know what we bring to the table.
The Visual Prophet: King Viz knows all, and I know that she *Viz points an elegant finger at Sierra* wouldn’t dare lay a finger on our precious little double champion of a King. But hey, I guess there is only way to find out. Grand Rampage is right around the corner, ladies, and so is your chance to follow in the footsteps of your idols, Heavenly Hell and the Jaded Hearts. Drizzy and I plan to be fighting champions, so if you want a shot at our gold, all you have to do is say it. I’ll leave you two alone now with that thought, and find myself a comfortable place to watch your match. Good luck.
(Viz waves goodbye and saunters off, leaving Sierra and Sarah staring after him. Once he disappears, the girls look at one another, and it’s Sierra who rolls her eyes.)
Sierra Bradford: He’s screwing with us.
(Sarah’s not convinced. She’s about to reply when a stagehand comes up to them and informs them they’re up next. The conversation is halted for now, and SASS head towards the curtains.)
(Voltage fades back to the ringside and focuses on Bella.)
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..
(‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi hits, and all the fans in attendance begin to boo maliciously as Dr. Bethany Blue steps out onto the stage. She walks to the beginning of the ramp with a confident smirk on her face, and the booing only grows louder as ‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits, and both Charlie and Jordie Marr follow. Jordie is smiling, trying to hype Charlie up, but Charlie looks almost frustrated, especially after the result of his last match. Tonight he is aiming to get payback, as the trio walk down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… Accompanied by Jordie Marr…. THE TEAM OF DOCTOR BETHANY BLUEEEE… AAAND CHHAAAAARRRLLLIIIEEEEE MMAAAAARRRRRR!!!!!
James Peters: Now this is a team to be reckoned with. I’m sure both competitors have their own reasons to want to win this match. We all know how Charlie Marr versus Sierra Bradford ended, and I’m sure Charlie just has an even bigger chip on his shoulder than usual after Sierra beat Charlie thanks to Malcolm Jones. I know for a fact that Charlie will stop at nothing to make up for that loss from last week.
Rich Russillo: While Charlie likely wants payback, I’m sure this will be a good match for Dr. Bethany Blue to prepare to face Darcy May Morgan for the Specialists Championship as soon as the opportunity comes. Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price have both challenged Darcy for that title at Road to Redemption and King of Elite respectively and both fell short to the current Champion. A win over these two here surely would be a good statement to make for Bethany.
Persephone: I have nothing to add, can the other two just come out already?
(‘Still Waiting’ by Sum 41 hits and the fan reception takes a complete 180 as everyone in attendance begins to cheer. Soon after, Sierra Bradford and Sarah Price make their way out to the stage together with matching attire. They both look confident in their chances going into this match, and they finally begin making their way down to the ring, taking pictures with fans but making sure not to high-five them all thanks to COVID-19.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents.. At a combined weight of 251 pounds… SASS! SIERRA AND SARAH, SUUUUUUUPPPEERRGIIIIIRRLLSS!!!!
Rich Russillo: I feel bad for SASS here. They’re basically fighting in a handicap match thanks to Jordie Marr’s presence, and with him having his own match tonight, I don’t expect to see Malcolm Jones showing up any time soon to help them. To be honest, I don’t think this is a match they could win.
James Peters: Why not? SASS has overcome the odds multiple times, and even before Malcolm interfered Sierra was doing a great job against Charlie. Not to mention these two are an actual team, and even good friends now. I think they’ve got this in the bag.
Rich Russillo: What do you think Persephone?
Persephone: I think that both of these teams are awful, and this match needs to end as fast as possible.
Rich Russillo: Oh, alright then.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this tag team match up is now underway! Sierra Bradford and Charlie Marr are starting this match, and it’s probably no surprise that these two want to settle the score. Sierra Bradford did defeat Charlie Marr last week, but that was only after Malcolm Jones had interfered and cost Charlie. While Sierra is still taking that as a victory, Charlie sees it as him being screwed over yet again. Both competitors are now locking up, who will have the upper hand early on? Charlie Marr, the man looking to redeem himself and once again prove his dominance over this brand, or Sierra Bradford, the woman looking to prove that she truly can defeat Charlie Marr and continue making her mark here on Voltage?
Rich Russillo: Looks like it’ll be Charlie! Charlie is able to get a headlock in on Charlie, and of course it looks like he’s talking trash, or at least saying something to Sarah Price who’s not too far away in team SASS’s corner, but I can’t exactly hear him. WAIT, SIERRA GETS CHARLIE UP- NO! Sierra almost got Charlie up for what could’ve been a back suplex, but Charlie managed to use his wait to keep himself down and keep the headlock intact. WAIT- SIERRA MANAGES TO PUSH CHARLIE OFF OF HER BEFORE PULLING HIM INTO A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP!
Persephone: Charlie kicked out, but Sierra pulled him to the ground, and she has him in another headlock… But on the ground.
James Peters: A grounded headlock.
Persephone: Yeah that. Anyways, why are we seeing these two fight again? Why do I always have to wait so long for Rex’s matches, this is so annoying. Charlie’s getting to his feet, but I really wish he wouldn’t. It’d make this night much easier for me.
James Peters: Alright Persephone we get it. As you were saying though, Charlie’s getting to his feet now, and it looks like Sierra’s struggling to keep the headlock in. Now it’s Charlie managing to lift Sierra up- but Sierra manages to flip onto her feet! Sierra backs into the ropes and Charlie tries to charge in- but he’s met with two boots to the face! Sierra now running up to the turnbuckles and jumps to the middle rope, and now there’s a diving dropkick as Charlie stumbles into a seated position in the opposite corner!
Rich Russillo: Sierra charging in now as Charlie is in the corner still- BUT CHARLIE AVOIDS WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN A RUNNING SENTON INTO THE CORNER! CHARLIE BACK TO HIS FEET AS SIERRA GETS TO A KNEE- AND THERE’S A RUNNING BIG BOOT BY MAIN EVENT MARR! THAT ONE SENT SIERRA CLEAN OUT OF THE RING! Sierra landed kinda badly but it looks like she’s not out just yet. Charlie getting out of the ring though- BUT SIERRA SWEEPS HIS LEGS WHILE HE WAS ON THE APRON! CHARLIE JUST FELL ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING, AND HIS SPINE MUST BE RATTLING AFTER THAT!
Persephone: Charlie fell off the barricade, and now Sierra grabs him before throwing him into the barricade. Charlie’s trying to recover, but now Sierra is punching him. I get Sarah and Sierra are a team or something, so couldn’t they have faced someone else? Charlie managed to hit Sierra with a…. Back elbow? I think that’s what it’s called. Sierra’s holding her nose after that, and now Charlie’s grabbing her- ow… Charlie threw her into the steel steps, that probably hurts. Sierra’s in like, a seated position. She’s leaning on the steps, and Charlie’s backing up for some reason. Is he walking out on the match? Please do so Charlie, the sooner this ends the better.
James Peters: Well sorry Persephone, but I don’t think that’s the case, AS CHARLIE CHARGES RIGHT BACK TOWARDS SIERRA! RUNNING KNEE- OH! SIERRA JUST BARELY GOT OUT OF THE WAY, AND CHARLIE JUST RAN KNEE FIRST RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Sierra rolling into the ring before rolling back out, and for some reason she restarted the count! I can only imagine that’s bad news for Charlie after he ran right into those steps, and Sierra is proving me right as she grabs Charlie, AND THROWS HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THOSE STEPS!
Rich Russillo: Sierra rolling back into the ring once again, and she’s running the ropes as Charlie looks to be getting back up! SUICIDE DI- NO! CHARLIE HITS A HUGE RIGHT HAND BEFORE SIERRA COULD FLY THROUGH THE ROPES! CHARLIE CLIMBING ONTO THE APRON WHILE SIERRA’S HEAD IS POKING OUT OF THE RING, AND THERE’S A RUNNING KNEE LIFT BY CHARLIE! Charlie re-entering the ring, and now there’s the tag to Dr. Bethany Blue as Sierra is still down! Smart of Charlie to make the tag there, especially while his other knee is likely still hurt.
James Peters: Sierra’s trying to get back to her feet, BUT BETHANY TAKES HER RIGHT BACK DOWN WITH A BOOT! It looks like Sierra’s momentum was halted once Charlie managed to stop that suicide dive.
Persephone: Now Bethany is grabbing Sierra’s arm… Ow. She just stomped on it. Sierra’s trying to crawl to her corner, but before she could reach Sarah’s hand Bethany grabbed her and pulled her into a sleeper hold. Sierra looks like she’s in trouble, and hopefully the referee just calls for the bell now, I don’t know how much longer I can take this.
James Peters: Well, the only reason for the ref to call the match here is if Sierra taps out or passes out, and I don’t think either is happening here, AS SIERRA STOMPS ON BETHANY’S FOOT, BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE ELBOW TO THE MIDSECTION TO ESCAPE THE SUBMISSION! Sierra tries to reach for Sarah once again, but Bethany pulls her away and irish whips her to the ropes! SIERRA WITH A HUGE DROPKICK THOUGH, AND THAT CAUGHT BETHANY OFF GUARD! SIERRA NOW CRAWLING OVER TO HER CORNER! BETHANY HASN’T BEEN IN THE MATCH VERY LONG SO SHE’S STARTING TO GET BACK UP- BUT IT’S TOO LATE AS SIERRA GETS THE TAG!
Rich Russillo: Sarah is in, AND THERE’S A HUGE ENZUIGIRI AS BETHANY GOT BACK TO HER FEET! SARAH BACKING INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND THERE’S A BACK ELBOW TO CHARLIE BEFORE HE COULD GET INVOLVED! SARAH NOW CHARGING IN, PLOT TWIST- NO! BETHANY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, AND THERE’S A LARIAT- NO! SARAH DUCKED THE LARIAT, AND NOW SHE PULLS HER FROM BEHIND! PLOT TWIST! THE RIPCORD KNEE CONNECTS, AND NOW SARAH’S GOING FOR THE COVER AFTER A HUGE COMEBACK FOR TEAM SASS!
ONE! TWO!! THRE-
Persephone: Bethany kicked out. Sarah’s now really waiting for her to get up though, instead she’s going to the top rope- or not. She tried to go to the top rope but Jordie grabbed her foot when she went to the apron. The referee saw Jordie and is telling her to back away, but while the referee and Sarah were distracted with Jordie Charlie took the opportunity to push Sarah off the turnbuckles. What an idiot, how did she not see Charlie coming? Anyways Sarah took a kinda bad looking tumble, and the doctor girl is rolling out of the ring, probably to go beat her up.
James Peters: Sarah is holding her neck while getting back to her feet- BUT THERE’S A KNEE LIFT TO SARAH’S MIDSECTION BY DR. BETHANY BLUE! AND THERE’S A SECOND! A THIRD! BETHANY NOW AIMING TO THROW SARAH INTO THE RING POST, BUT SARAH TURNS IT AROUND- WAIT! BETHANY MANAGED TO STOP HERSELF FROM HITTING THE POST- BUT SARAH JUST DROPKICKS HER RIGHT INTO IT ANYWAY! Great quick thinking skills by Sarah there, and now she rolls Bethany back into the ring before climbing to the top rope, and this time she has her guard up, making sure Jordie doesn’t interfere again!
Rich Russillo: Bethany is getting back to her feet, AND NOW SARAH DIVES, DIVING CROSSBOD- NO! WOW, BETHANY LITERALLY JUST MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND LET SARAH CRASH RIGHT ONTO THE MAT, AND NOW BETHANY RUSHES IN AND GRABS SARAH’S ARM WHILE SHE’S DOWN! THE DISLOCATION!! THE FUJIWARA ARM BAR, IT’S LOCKED IN! SARAH WENT FOR THE HIGH RISK MANEUVER, AND BETHANY JUST SHOWED HER EXACTLY WHY IT’S CALLED “HIGH RISK” AS SHE EASILY MADE SARAH PAY THE PRICE JUST BY TAKING A FEW STEPS BACK!
James Peters: Sarah Price paid the price. Good one Rich.
Rich Russillo: Thank you I’ve been waiting to say that.
Persephone: Are you guys gonna focus on the actual match, or not? It looks like it could be all over soon.
Rich Russillo: You’re right, I’m so sorry Persephone! Sarah looks like she’s in a lot of trouble, and Sierra wants the tag clearly but there’s just no way she’s gonna get that right now! Sierra’s clenching her fists, trying as hard as she can to not tap out here tonight! It’d be a shame for Sarah to lose by submission after everything she said about wanting to defeat Bethany and Charlie.
Persephone: The blonde chick is slowly pulling her arm out of the submission. I completely forgot her name, but she’s trying as hard as she can. Oh, she got out of it, and now she rolled away from Bethany. Blondie’s backing up into the corner, pretty quickly too, oh and now she’s running towards Bethany. She went for that running knee-
James Peters: the Enchantment Breaker-
Persephone: The Enchantment Breaker, but Bethany slid under her. They both got to their feet pretty fast- but Bethany just superkicked Blondie.
James Peters: That superkick is known as the TJD, and I think Sarah Price may be knocked out! Bethany pulling Sarah into the middle of the ring, and there’s the cover!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
James Peters: SARAH PRICE MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! Dr. Bethany Blue can’t believe her eyes, somehow Sarah is still in this one! Bethany pulling Sarah up though, and I think she’s planning to put this match to an end before Sarah could somehow find her way to make a comeback! CODE BLUE- WAIT WHAT? NO! SARAH DUCKED IT, AND NOW SHE PULLS BETHANY DOWN WITH A ROLL UP! TO STEAL THE MATCH!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Rich Russillo: DR. BETHANY BLUE MANAGED TO KICK OUT, BUT SARAH GRABS HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK JUST AS SHE GOT TO ONE FOOT! DANCE WITH THE PRINCESS! DANCE WITH THE PRINCESS CONNECTS BUT NEITHER COMPETITOR IS ABLE TO GET UP! AFTER GETTING HIT WITH THE TJD, SARAH LOOKS LIKE SHE’S OUT, AND SHE’S UNABLE TO CAPITALIZE AFTER HITTING THAT FRONT FACELOCK CUTTER! This is bad for Sarah and Sierra, Sarah had a great opportunity when she managed to hit the Dance With the Princess, but now both competitors are down!
Persephone: Wait, what the? Charlie just entered the ring since the ref looked worried about the two women, and he just tossed… Sarah..? Yeah I think her name is Sarah, he just threw her out of the ring. The referee is yelling for him to leave the ring or he’ll disqualify him and Bethany, and it looks like Charlie’s listening but he just dragged Bethany to his corner before leaving the ring. What exactly was the purpose of tha- oh. He tagged himself in. Alright good, he’s fresh so maybe he can finish Sarah off and finally we can get to Rex!
James Peters: Rex is in the main event Persephone, sorry but you’re gonna have to wait a little while longer if you want to see him. Back to the match though, it looks like Sarah has managed to roll back into the ring- BUT IT DOESN’T EXACTLY MATTER TOO MUCH AS CHARLIE JUST DEADLIFTS HER OFF THE GROUND! CHARLIE LOOKING TO GET THIS MATCH OVER WITH, AND THERE’S A SIT OUT POWERBOMB! CHARLIE DID THAT ALMOST EFFORTLESSLY, AND JUST LIKE THAT THIS MATCH MIGHT BE OVER, THE COVER BY THE LIBERTINE, CAN SARAH STAY IN THIS!?
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: YES, SHE CAN! Charlie looks annoyed at the fact that Sarah once again stays in this match, but one thing to know about Sarah is that she just might have more heart than anyone on the Voltage roster. It’s going to take a lot if Charlie wants to keep her down for the three count. Charlie lifting Sarah up, and I think he’s setting up for the Queen is Dead! Charlie trying to get both arms up- BUT SARAH PUSHES CHARLIE AWAY BEFORE BACKING INTO HER CORNER! SIERRA MANAGES TO TAG HERSELF IN, AND NOW BOTH MEMBERS OF SASS RUN THE ROPES, DUCKING CHARLIE’S ATTEMPT AT A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! TOTALLY PG MOVE CONNECTS!
Persephone: Double running knees by Sierra and Sarah.. Dr. Bethany Blue tossed Sarah out of the ring since everything is chaotic right now, but Sierra just hit that roundhouse kick thing she does, and now she’s running the ropes again. Shining Wizard by Sierra..
James Peters: She calls that the Electric Feel.
Persephone: Electric Feel by Sierra. Sierra now going for the cover on Charlie since he’s still down, doubt that’s the smart move.
ONE! TWO!! THR-
Persephone: And just as I thought, Charlie kicked out.
James Peters: BUT SIERRA WASTES NO TIME AIMING TO CAPITALIZE! VINEYARD! SIERRA AGAIN LOOKING TO MAKE CHARLIE MARR TAP OUT, AND AFTER CHARLIE HIT HIS KNEE ON THOSE STEPS EARLIER SIERRA MIGHT JUST GET THAT DONE! CHARLIE IS STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW, AND IT’S EASY TO SEE WHY! CHARLIE MAY HAVE HAD A LOT OF TIME TO RECOVER, BUT THAT’S PROBABLY NOT GOING TO MEAN ANYTHING NOW THAT HE’S TRAPPED IN THIS SUBMISSION! CHARLIE NEEDS TO FIND HIS WAY OUT OF THIS, OR ELSE I SEE THIS MATCH ENDING VERY SOON! IS THIS HOW IT ENDS, WILL SASS DEFEAT CHARLIE AND BETHANY!?
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE’S TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF TO THE ROPES, AND RIGHT NOW HE’S SUCCEEDING IN GETTING CLOSER! SIERRA’S KEEPING THAT SUBMISSION LOCKED IN, AND SURELY IT’S STILL GOING TO DO THE NECESSARY DAMAGE TO CHARLIE’S FOOT AFTER HIS KNEE WAS ALREADY MESSED UP, BUT NOW SHE’S FORCED TO RELEASE THE SUBMISSION AS CHARLIE FINALLY MANAGES TO MAKE IT TO THE ROPES! SIERRA RELEASES THE SUBMISSION, BUT SHE NOW STOMPS DOWN ON CHARLIE’S LEG BEFORE BACKING AWAY! Sierra needs to come up with some way to finish this! The match is in her hands, all she needs to do is take Charlie down for the three count!
Persephone: Charlie is pulling himself up with the turnbuckles, and it looks like Sierra still wants to beat Charlie up some more, because she’s running towards him- only to look like an idiot, as Charlie just hit her in the face with a big boot. Now it’s Charlie running towards Sierra, and there’s the Charing Cross- Oh no. It doesn’t connect. Sierra ducked it, and Charlie hit the referee but he didn’t get all of it. I swear something similar happened last week. Anyways, Sierra’s running the ropes-
James Peters: BUT LOOK AT THAT! JORDIE RIPLEY JUST POKED SIERRA IN THE EYES WHILE SHE WAS RUNNING THE ROPES! SIERRA IS COVERING HER FACE, UNABLE TO SEE ANYTHING- AND DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST HIT THE CODE BLUE! THE REFEREE IS STILL DOWN,, AND JORDIE AND BETHANY JUST DID THE WORK FOR CHARLIE! SARAH PRICE NOW ENTERING THE RING SINCE THE REF IT OUT- BUT IT’S ALL FOR NOTHING AS CHARLIE NAILS HER WITH THE CHARING CROSS!! BETHANY EXITING THE RING AND JORDIE HOPPING OFF THE APRON AS THE REFEREE IS BEGINNING TO STIR, AND NOW I THINK CHARLIE IS LOOKING TO FINISH THIS!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DRAGGING SIERRA UP FROM THE MAT, AND THERE IT IS, THE QUEEN IS DEAD! CHARLIE JUST NAILED SIERRA WITH ONE OF HIS BEST MOVES, AND NOW HE HAS A SICK SMILE ON HIS FACE AS HE LIFTS SIERRA’S LEGS UP, AND… Oh come on, this just isn’t right! Charlie already has the match won, but now he looks to cap off his win with an incredibly provocative cover!
Persephone: Oh my God, is he humping her?? This is disgusting, please let this match be over!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners.. THE TEAM OF DOCTOR BETHANY BLUE, AND CHHAAAAARRRLLLIIIEEEEE MMAAAAAARRR!!!!!!
James Peters: Well that was a very suggestive pin. Anyways, it looks like Charlie gets back on track and Dr. Bethany Blue gets another win under her belt, but not without a little mishap near the end. The referee was taken out, but not long enough to ruin Charlie’s chances of winning, as instead Jordie and Bethany softened Sierra up, allowing Charlie to take Sarah out, and finish the job. That last bit was just disgusting though, I’m sure that’s not going to go smooth with many people, but anyone who knows Charlie knows that he doesn’t care how others feel about him.
Rich Russillo: Well, I understand why he did it.
Persephone & James Peters: :skip:
Rich Russillo: Wait, guys just hear me out. Sierra only beat Charlie last week because of Malcolm Jones’ interference. Sierra may have just been going by what Charlie said before the match, but nonetheless she still took credit for pinning Charlie. Charlie said that she couldn’t actually beat him, so tonight he not only proved that, but embarrassed her even further.
Persephone: That’s disgusting. You’re disgusting for agreeing with him. Let’s move on please.
James Peters: Right.. Anyways, congratulations Charlie Marr and Dr. Bethany Blue!
(‘It Ain’t Safe’ hits, and the crowd wastes no time making their feelings known as they immediately begin booing, while Charlie Marr gets back to his feet, still grinning. Both Dr. Bethany Blue and Jordie Marr enter the ring, holding their hands up as both members of SASS are down. The three continue smiling, looking right towards the camera as Voltage begins to fade elsewhere.)
(Voltage fades into a brief recap of the Dynasty exclusive event, Reckless Wiring. Drake King, Darcy May Morgan, Justin Windgate, and Kassidy Heart are all seen successfully defending their championships while Lethal Consequences and SOSA Henderson picked up huge victories as well!)
(Bella is ready to go when Voltage returns from break.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
( “Scenario” by Pop Smoke hits through the Jeunesse Arena’s P.A System, prompting for a volcanic eruption-like reaction from the crowd. Malcolm Jones is showered by boos and cheers as he nonchalantly makes his way down the ring. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Harlem, New York, weighing in at 320 pounds…. MALLLLLLCOLLLLLLMMMMMMMM JONNNNNNNNNESSSSS!!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm Jones has racked up a successful series of accomplishments here in Elite Answers Wrestling. Without a shadow of a doubt, he is a highly-touted asset to the Voltage roster.
Persephone: He’s not as good as Rexy Sexy, but Malcolm definitely has showed out on every performance he’s been apart of ever since his REVOLT roots. But now, he goes toe-to-toe with one of Voltage’s greatest threats and that is Lars Grier.
( As Malcolm Jones waits in the center of the ring, “CARION IS” by Lovecraft blasts through the speakers to ear-deafening boos. Lars Grier steps away from guerilla and slowly stomps onto the stage. He power stances on the start of the ramp, staring straight into Malcolm Jones’ soul as he strides down towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: From Toledo, Ohio, weighing in at 264 pounds…. LAAAARRRRRSSSSSS GRIIIIIIIEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!!
James Peters: Malcolm Jones should expect an uphill battle here in Rio De Janeiro because Lars Grier is not a force to be reckoned with. “Carion” Lars Grier has all the tools to succeed and if he uses them to get a significant victory over someone like Malcolm Jones, that’ll put him in more conversations than he’s already in.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: This match is now underway here as Lars Grier and Malcolm Jones gather in the middle of the ring. “Carion” vs “Big 092MLBOA”. We are about to see a fight between mass and velocity here as they engage in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Grier utilizes his strength to muscle Jones into the corner and shows good sportsmanship by quickly releasing the hold.
James Peters: When you’re in the ring with an elitist like Lars Grier, you expect to encounter sheer strength and mind games. I can tell Malcolm was expecting “Carion” to sneak in a cheap shot, but he just serenely backed away. Jones appears a bit perplexed by his sportsmanship as they now tangle for another collar-and-elbow tie-up.
Persephone: Grier once again wrestlers Jones into the corner, this time being more aggressive as he releases and shoves him away. Malcolm comes off the corner and goes for a kick! Grier grabs his foot, holding it in place as GRIER SLAPS HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE!! I don’t suppose it’s a good idea to aggravate Grier as he now twists him around! CLOTHESLINE!!
Rich Russillo: Grier misses the lariat attempt and turns around! JONES TAKES HIM WITH AN ARM DRAG! Grier quickly gets back up to his feet and gets grounded with another one! Malcolm puts him in his sights as he shoots up and goes for a dropkick! Grier sidesteps and sends him crashing straight onto his chest. “Carion” evades that dropkick as he now whips Jones into the ropes and pops him up!
James Peters: JONES WITH A DROPKICK IN MID-AIR!! WHAT A BEAUTIFULLY TIMED DROPKICK IN THE AIR AS HE SENDS GRIER FLAT ONTO HIS BACK! Malcolm Jones now gets up to his feet and attempts to lift him up for a fireman’s carry. But “Carion” shrugs him into the ropes and POPS HIM UP WITH A BIG RIGHT HAND TO THE JAW!! MALCOLM ON SPAGHETTI LEGS NOW AS GRIER SEIZES HIM FROM BEHIND.
Persephone: Grier hoists him up for a back suplex! JONES ROLLS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND ESCAPES! He lands on his feet and reels into the corner as Grier comes charging in! JONES STOPS HIM IN HIS TRACKS WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE AND JUMPS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! GRIER TURNS AROUND AND STICKS A BIG BOOT INTO THE MUSHER OF MALCOLM JONES!!!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm goes flying off the top turnbuckle and onto the ringside floor as Grier now exits through the ropes and follows closely behind. He grabs his head, runs with it AND PROPELS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE WITH NO MERCY! He quickly pulls him back up AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE ONCE AGAIN! Grier showing little to no pity as usual as he now places his head between his legs and HOLDS HIM UP INTO A POWERBOMB!!
James Peters: JONES TILTS DOWN AND SENDS GRIER OVER THE BARRICADE WITH A HURRICANRANA COUNTER!!! Grier spills out to the audience as Jones gets up to his feet and takes a few steps back. “Carion” rises up to his feet as JONES COMES RUNNING AND VAULTING OVER THE BARRICADE!!! JONES FLATTENS LARS GRIER WITH A LEAP OVER THE BARRICADE AS HE NOW GETS HIM BACK INTO THE RINGSIDE!! He slides him back into the ring and perches himself onto the top turnbuckle. MALCOLM LOOKING TO TAKE IT TO THE AIR ONCE AGAIN!!! THE RE-UP!!! THE DIVING LEG DROPS CONNECTS!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Persephone: KICK-OUT!! You’re gonna have to do more than that to put away “Carion”. Jones pulls him up to his feet and thrusts him into the corner. He fires away with a combination of kicks and punches to the cornered Lars Grier before taunting him and dashing into the opposite corner. BUT LOOK!! GRIER BOUNCES OFF THE BUCKLES AND RUNS CLOSELY BEHIND!! JONES TURNS AROUND AS GRIER COMES SHOOTING TOWARDS HIM!
James Peters: GRIER GOES FIRST FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, MISSING THE STINGER SPLASH AS HE TURNS AROUND AND GETS LIFTED UP!!! SPINNN THE BLOCKKKK!!!! THE SPINNING SIT-OUT SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: GRIER POWERS OUT AT TWO! Malcolm has been able to slow down and defend himself from the dangers imposed by Lars Grier as he’s taken him down with two of his signatures. Jones now trapping “Carion” in a grounded headlock, looking to soften him up. Grier manages to get his legs scissored around Jones’ head. Jones releases the headlock, twists around and uses his head to kip-up out of the leg scissors.
Persephone: Malcolm smirks before running into the ropes and back. Grier jumps down, but MALCOLM CATCHES HIM WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK INTERCEPTION!! Jones knows the game as he runs back into the ropes and rebounds towards GRIER!! GRIER SHOOTS OFF THE GROUND AND SIDESTEPS!
James Peters: MALCOLM MISSES AND GOES FACE FIRST INTO THE ROPES, LASHING OFF INTO GRIER’S ARMS AND DROPPED WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!!! JONES URGENTLY SCRAMBLES INTO THE CORNER AS GRIER COMES UP AND PANCAKES HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A STINGER SPLASH!! BUT HE ISN’T DONE YET!! HE TURNS JONES AROUND AND DRILLS HIM WITH A BRIDGING DRAGON SUPLEX!! COVER!!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! That basement dropkick to the face may have angered him, which what he didn’t want as Lars now rebounds him off the ropes and lifts him sky high into the air!! BACK BODY DROP GOES JONES CRASHING INTO THE CANVAS!!!
Persephone: Rich, James, did you just see how high Malcolm Jones was in the air? He was like one-hundred feet up, which is how high I’d go for my beautiful Rex Master.
Rich Russillo: I think what you’re trying to compare is how high you must be to be that passionate for him. You do realize he’s married, right?
Persephone: Yeah, married to me. GRIER WHIPS MALCOLM BACK INTO THE ROPES AND POPS HIM UP AS HE RETRIEVES HIM!! AND JONES GOES SMASHING DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS!!
James Peters: Malcolm feeling the full effect of those deep plummets into the ground as Grier now brings him up and attempts to lift him up for a third time!! BACK BODY DROP TRIFECTA!! NO!!! MALCOLM MANAGES TO FLIP ONTO HIS FEET AND LAND A PELE KICK ACROSS THE CROWN OF LARS GRIER!!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm Jones recuperates in the corner as he sees Grier slowly rising up to his feet. HE COMES OFF THE CORNER AND CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK UP AGAINST THE JAW!! GRIER STAGGERS AS JONES GRABS HIS ARM AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER!! GRIER COLLIDES INTO THE CORNER WHILE JONES REBOUNDS AND JUMPS UP FOR THE KNEE TO COMPLETE THE WATER WHIP!
James Peters: GRIER DUCKS THE KNEE AND STICKS HIS KNEE INTO THE FACE OF JONES!!! A KNEE OF HIS OWN AS HE NOW PULLS HIM IN, HOOKS HIS TIGHTS AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO A SUPLEX!!! X-PLEX RELEASE SUPLEX!!
Persephone: JONES MANAGES TO LAND ONTO HIS FEET!! GRIER IS CLUELESS AS JONES JUMPS UP AND SPLASHES ONTO “CARION” WITH A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! MALCOLM NOW PULLS HIM UP TO HIS FEET AND HOOKS HIS TIGHTS!! THIS COULD BE IT!!! MALCOLM NOW LIFTS HIM UP!!
Rich Russillo: BUT GRIER DRILLS HIM WITH A BRAINBUSTER!!! COVER!!
ONE… TWO……. T-
James Peters: JONES KICKS OUT! I am shocked how quickly Grier was able to recover and connect with that brainbuster after that shooting star press. Unhuman resilience by “Carion” as he gets up to his feet. Both individuals starting to run out of gas as Grier now charges into him! GORREEE!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! JONES GETS HIS KNEE UP IN TIME!! HE HAS HIM STAGGERED AS HE NOW GOES AROUND AND LOCKS IN THE COCAINA CLUTCH!! THE SLEEPER HOLD IS LOCKED IN, BUT GRIER USES HIS BODY TO FORCE JONES INTO THE CORNER!! Jones releases the hold as Grier reels into the middle of the ring.
Persephone: Jones looking to go airborne as he sits on the top turnbuckle! BUT GRIER GRABS HIS FOOT AND PULLS HIM OFF THE BUCKLES!! HE CATCHES HIM AND THROWS HIM BACK-FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! MY GOD!! HE NOW PICKS HIM BACK UP!!! AND DRIVES HIM DOWN FOR A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!! COVER!!
ONE… TWO…. T-
James Peters: JONES POWERS OUT! Grier now signalling for the end here as he picks him up to his feet. HE HOOKS HIS ARM AND LIFTS HIM UP!! DEADLIGHT DRIVE!! NO!! JONES ESCAPES AND CLOCKS HIM WITH A FOREARM!! Grier manages to ricochet off the ropes and back into Jones! BUT HE EATS A BIG ENZIGURI TO THE JAW!!!
Rich Russillo: “Carion” is down as Jones shoots onto his feet and dashes towards Grier!! GRIER LAWNMOWERS OVER HIM WITH A VICIOUS LARIAT!!! JONES IS FOLDED LIKE AN ACCORDION AS “CARION” NOW GRABS HIM AND LIFTS HIM UP!!! AND HE FOLLOWS UP WITH THE DEADLIGHT DRIVE!!
Persephone: SHAKKKKKEEE THE ROOOOOOMMMMM!!! JONES COUNTERS IT WITH THE CANADIAN DESTROYER AS HE NOW QUICKLY HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! THIS COULD BE IT!!
ONE… TWO….. THR-
James Peters: KICK-OUT!! JONES IS IN DISBELIEF!! HE CAUGHT HIM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE SHAKE THE ROOM FLIP PILEDRIVER, BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO GET HIM DOWN FOR THE THREE COUNT!! Lars Grier is down-and-out while Malcolm Jones ascends the turnbuckles!! JONES SOARS OFF! FIVE STAR SWAG SPLASSSHHHHHHHH!!!
Rich Russillo: GRIER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!! JONES LANDS AND ROLLS ONTO HIS FEET AND TURNS AROUND AS GRIER COMES CHARGING IN!! GORRRREEEEEEE!!! NO!!! JONES JUMPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND ROLLS HIM OVER WITH A JACKKNIFE PIN!
ONE…. TWO… THR-
Persephone: GRIER ESCAPES THE PINNING PREDICAMENT!! BOTH INDIVIDUALS NOW GET UP TO THEIR FEET AS JONES JUMPS UP ONTO “CARION”. GRIER GRABS HIM IN MID AIR, SPINS AROUND AND PLACES HIM ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HE CLOCKS HIM WITH A HEADBUTT!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! JONES BLOCKS THE HEADBUTT WITH HIS KNEE, CAUSING FOR “CARION” TO BE ON WOBBLY LEGS AS MALCOLM JONES NOW STANDS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!
James Peters: GRIER RECOVERS AND LEAPS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH JONES!!! HEADBUTT TO THE FACE!! JONES IS OUT AS GRIER NOW HOOKS HIS ARMS!! WHAT THE?!???!?! DEADDDDLIIIIGHHHHHHTTT DRIIIIIVVVVEEE!!!
Persephone: THE DEADLIGHT DRIVE ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! GRIER MAY HAVE JUST MURDERED MALCOLM JONES IN COLD-BLOOD AS HE JUST RELENTLESSLY SLAMMED HIM DOWN ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLES WITH THE HIGH-ANGLE URANAGE BODY SLAM!!!
Rich Russillo: The way Malcolm bounced off the turnbuckles…. He may have just broken his back as he has yet to budge! “Carion” with a sinister smirk planted on his face, looking down onto the subconscious Malcolm Jones at ringside. Grier steps through the ropes and brings Jones back into the ring.
James Peters: Lars isn’t going for the pin, except he is looking to inflict more damage as HE LIFTS HIM UP AND SENDS HIM HALF-WAY ACROSS THE RING WITH A RIDICULOUS BIEL THROW!! MY GOD! Grier is effortlessly handling all two-hundred thirty pounds of dead weight as he picks him up once again and LAUNCHES HIM BACK-FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!
Persephone: Malcolm Jones is willingly taking all of this pain as he continues to get up! Grier wants to end him, but Jones continues to show his unparalleled resilience. “CARION” WITH A POUNDING SLAP TO THE FACE!! DID YOU HEAR THAT!??!
Rich Russillo: I HEARD THAT INDEED! JONES SEEMS UNFAZED BY IT, HOWEVER!! THAT BIG SLAP FIRING MALCOLM JONES UP AS GRIER GOES FOR ANOTHER SLAP!!! BUT MALCOLM YANKSHIS HAND BEFORE HE COULD GO FURTHER, SHAKING HIS HEAD AS HE PULLS HIM IN FOR A DEVASTATING HEADBUTT! Grier is rocked as Malcolm unleashes a flurry of forearm smashes onto him! Grier overwhelmed, trying his best to block the forearms as Jones stops to turn around and run.
James Peters: Grier grabs his wrist and pulls him back in! AND CLOCKS HIM WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! GRIER NOW REPEATEDLY UNVEILING EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS TO THE HEAD OF MALCOLM JONES BEFORE COMING OFF THE ROPES!! AND TAKING HIS HEAD OFF WITH THE LOW-RUNNING UPPERCUT!! THE GRIER MONTAGE IS COMPLETED AS HE NOW GOES FOR THE COVER!!
ONE… TWO.. THRE-
Persephone: MALCOLM GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!! Grier angrily staring at the referee in disbelief and apoplexy while Jones rolls out beneath the bottom rope to the apron. “Carion” thought that would’ve finished him off for good, but it didn’t and it looks like he’s going to put the finishing touches on Jones!
Rich Russillo: Jones is using the ropes to get onto his feet on the apron, clueless on his surroundings as GRIER RUNS THE ROPES AND CHARGES INTO JONES!! GORRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
James Peters: NO!!! JONES STICKS HIS KNEE UP, BLOCKING THE GORE FROM COMPLETION AS GRIER IS NOW ON SPAGHETTI LEGS!! GRIER IS STUNNED AS JONES NOW JUMPS AND SLINGSHOTS INTO HIM!!! AND SPIKES HIM WITH THE SLINGSHOT CANADIAN DESTROYER!!
Rich Russillo: BUT GRIER CATCHES JONES!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH AN AIR RAID CRASH neckbreaker!! HE MIGHT HAVE BROKE HIS NECK AS HE STUMBLES OVER HIM!! COUNT IT, REF!!

Persephone: JONES POPS HIS SHOULDER UP YET AGAIN!! GRIER NOW QUICKLY GETTING UP TO HIS FEET, ANGRY AS HE YELLS AT JONES TO GET UP!! Lars knows what he has to do and he will do it! JONES WINDS UP TO HIS FEET AS GRIER COMES CHARGING IN!! GORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEE!!!
James Peters: JONES SIDESTEPS AND GRIER GOES NOSEDIVING INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!!! GRIER SPOOLS BACKWARDS INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AS JONES REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH THE JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!! THE WATER WHIP KNEE STRIKE AS MALCOLM QUICKLY NOW CLIMBS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!
Persephone: FIVVVVEEEE STARRRRR FROGGGGG SPLASSSSSHHHHHHH!!!!
James Peters: IT CONNECTS!!! THIS COULD BE IT!
ONE…. TWO…. THREEE!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: GRIER GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!!! WHAT FORTITUDE SHOWN BY LARS GRIER AS MALCOLM JONES IS DUMBFOUNDED AND SHOCKED!! THAT WAS THE TICKET FOR JONES TO WALK OUT OF HERE WITH A VICTORY, BUT IT STILL ISN’T ENOUGH!! Jones now joins “Carion” on the apron!
James Peters: JONES AND GRIER NOW EXCHANGING BLOWS ON THE APRON!! BOTH IN A PRECARIOUS POSITION AS JONES CLOCKS GRIER WITH A WELL-PLACED KICK TO THE FACE BEFORE HOOKING HIS PANTS AND ATTEMPTING TO LIFT HIM UP!! BUT GRIER HOWEVER, USES HIS POWER TO TILT HIM UP!!! OH NO!!!!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM HAS FOUND HIMSELF UPSIDE DOWN IN THE ARMS OF “CARION” WHILE GRIER CONTINUES TO HOLD HIM UP IN THE AIR!! THE CROWD BUZZING TO SEE WHAT HE WILL DO! MALCOLM SLANTS OVER, SNATCHES HIS HEAD AND SPIKES HIM ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON WITH A DEVASTATING DDT!! A skull-crushing DDT onto the hardest part of the apron as both elitists descend onto the ringside floor. Jones tentatively rises from the ground, shocked by what he was able to accomplish as he inserts himself back into the ring.
Persephone: The probability and possibly the medical condition of Lars Grier may be in huge jeopardy as he has remained unresponsive on the ringside floor! “Carion” is out like a light and the official begins to count!
ONE!!!! TWO…. THREE….. FOUR……
James Peters: Malcolm anxiously sits in the corner while Grier hasn’t moved an inch! Lars Grier hasn’t budged at all and we may see this result in a count-out!
Rich Russillo: Grier now showing he is still alive and well as he lifts his head up, startled and dumbfounded as he starts to slowly get onto his knees.
Persephone: The referee shorelines the ropes, carrying out the count while Grier is just about to stand. WHAT IS MALCOLM DOING?!?
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AND LEAPS OVER THE HEAD OF LARS GRIER!!
James Peters: TOPE CON HILLLOOOOOOO!!!!! NO!!!! GRIER CATCHES HIM IN MID-AIR AND HOLDS HIM ONTO THE SHOULDERS!!!! LARS WITH AN APOPLECTIC LOOK ON HIS FACE AS HE HOISTS HIM UP!!! AND POUNDS HIM DOWN ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH A POWERBOMB!!
Rich Russillo: A ridiculous showcase of athletic ability from Malcolm Jones, but judging from how he painfully groans on his stomach, he regrets not taking the count-out victory. He cashed in for a Tope Con Hilo, but he got a powerbomb onto the concrete floor. “Carion” looks down onto his body, smirking as he slowly slides into the ring.
Persephone: He petrifies the referee before he cautiously walks into the corner of the ring. Jones coughs up droplets of blood as he gets up to his feet. GRIER NOW GETS TO STEPPING AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! HE SOARS UP INTO THE AIR!! AND LAYS IT ALL ON THE LINE WITH A MONSTER SUICIDE DIVE OVER THE TOP ROPE!!
James Peters: “Carion” defies gravity with a once-in-a-lifetime leap of faith as Grier gets him back into the ring. Malcolm scrambles into his feet, probably clueless on what city he is in as GRIER COMES IN FROM THE CORNER!! GORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEE!!! MALCOLM JONES IS TURNED INSIDE OUT AS GRIER NOW CRAWLS IN FOR THE WINNING COVER!!
( The audience rumbles as the titantron malfunctions and switches to a shot running through backstage while screaming and clanging is heard. )
Rich Russillo: We have just received word that a physical altercation has boiled backstage and we are getting eyes on it at this moment. This match is still going, but Grier is fixating himself onto the titantron!
( The camera shows Ms. Extreme laying a barrage of punches onto Lars Grier’s caregiver, Asmo. Grier’s eyes widen with concern as the backstage personnel attempt to separate Camille, but it is to no avail. He is frozen in fear as Extreme grabs a supply box and slides it right into the face of his caregiver. She grabs Asmo by her hair, showing her battered face in front of the camera before leaving her on the ground. )
Ms. Extreme: Lars you did everything in your power to try and cost me my Interwire Championship earlier this evening, but to no one’s surprise I overcame the odds like the professional wrestling Jesus that I am and retaining just like I said I would. But one thing I can tell you now, is that I’m sick of you. I’m sick of The Corvus and at Grand Rampage everything between the two of us finally comes to an end. If I have to take you fucks out one by one as we work our towards the event then so be it. I figured I would go ahead and get started when I saw your bitch hanging around. Consider this a warning shot, Lars. I don’t mind playing dirty and I sure as hell don’t mind when things get personal. You started this by fucking with mine and coming for Consuela, and I’m going to end it by destroy you and the rest of your so-called family. Be on your toes, Lars. We’re just getting started.
(Ms. Extreme kicks Asmo a few more times before shoving through security and heading out of the picture. The titantron cuts off, leaving Lars standing there and shaking with anger.)
( Lars Grier angrily exits the squared circle, speeding up the ramp as he leaves Malcolm Jones in the middle of the ring. Grier doesn’t acknowledge his match is still on resume as the referee begins to count. )
James Peters: Lars Grier just abandoned this match to attend to his caregiver the referee carries out the count!
Persephone: Grier showing tonight that he is a definition of a simp because he just deserted one of the most important match-ups in recent memory for some girl!
Rich Russillo: Wait a second, why are you making fun of him for being a simp when you’ve been simping for Rex McAllister ever since you joined our team.
Persephone: It isn’t simping, it’s true love…
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Scenario” by Pop Smoke begins to play to a mixed reaction. Malcolm Jones gets up to his feet, confused and disappointed as the referee raises his hand. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY COUNTOUT….. MALLLLLLLCOOOOLLLLLMLMMMMMMM JONNNNNNNESSSSSSS!!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm Jones walks out of tonight with a countout victory over Lars Grier, but I assure you he’s not going to be fully satisfied with it. Jones wanted a real fight out of Grier only just to see him run to the back and leave their match high-and-dry.
James Peters: You’re absolutely right, Lars Grier definitely has unfinished business with Malcolm Jones, but the words of Ms. Extreme tonight has made her tensions with “Carion” Lars Grier be elevated to another level.
(Malcolm shrugs his shoulders at the outcome and finally gets out of the ring. He walks up the ramp and heads to the back as Voltage fades to break.)
(Another commercial airs featuring Xander Payne for whatever reason. This one is for milk and potatoes which doesn’t really seem like a good combination.)
(Voltage fades back into a pre-taped interview from earlier in the day. Sophia Clarke sits with the number one contender for the New Breed Championship, Jalyn Garcia. Sophia smiles at Jalyn.)
Sophia Clarke: Thank you for joining me, Jalyn.
Jalyn Garcia: No problem.
Sophia Clarke: Grand Rampage is coming up.
Jalyn Garcia: That’s what the calendar says.
Sophia Clarke: Justin Windgate versus Jalyn Garcia for the New Breed Championship. What does this match mean to you?
Jalyn Garcia: It’s hard to put into words really and where do I begin? How, for all the doubt and struggles I’ve had away from the ring, would immediately be put behind me if I win? How I could vindicate myself for failing to get going at the start of the season? How I’d be walking in the footsteps of my mentor? I don’t know, pick one and I could chew your ear off all night long. This match simply means everything to me and my career.
Sophia Clarke: If I correctly recall, it was your decision to have this match at Grand Rampage. You wanted your moment to come on a big stage. That’s a lot of pressure to put on yourself heading into your first championship match, is it not?
Jalyn Garcia: Pressure? Not at all. I don’t train, I don’t study, I don’t prepare, I don’t spend every waking second preparing to be the best only to be swallowed up by pressure itself. There isn’t a stage, there isn’t a spotlight, there isn’t a single god damn environment where the pressure will get the best of Jalyn Garcia. But I want the eyes of the world present, I want EVERYONE from EVERY brand to see just what I can do and what will await every possible challenger.
Sophia Clarke: Is that championship mentality something your mentor helped instill in you?
Jalyn Garcia: It is. One thing I was taught was focusing on the right opponents at the right time. You can’t always be in this ‘do or die’ mentality. It drains you, it leaves you exhausted. You can’t treat everyone like they’re the greatest, like they’re going to unseat you because the reality is not everyone can do that. Has it bitten me in the backside? Sure, I didn’t defeat Sarah Price but it’s gotten me this far. I’ve been preparing for this match ever since I won the contendership at Clash of Kingdoms. No matter who I’ve faced – Colby or Sarah – I’ve looked past them and remained focused on Justin Windgate. I’m physically and importantly mentally prepared for this match and I’ve been so for a very, very long time.
Sophia Clarke: Let’s talk about Jamie O’Hara for a moment. How did this relationship between the two of you come about?
Jalyn Garcia: We’re a bit of a global family, the Garcia family. My late uncle Eddie was a legend in Australia and my cousin Richard wasn’t too far behind in building his own name. He and Jamie crossed paths years before he came here to EAW when I was still a kid. He said he always had tremendous respect and admiration for my family even though he never knew Eddie. When Richard stopped, Jamie told me how important it was to keep our family name going through this business; even if it was only a little bit. Whenever he was travelling through the area, he would always come and see me and the first thing he would ask is if I was ready to start training.
(Jalyn chuckles at himself for a second)
Jalyn Garcia: But I never really was. It wasn’t until I got older and found myself watching him rise to the top of EAW, becoming the EAW World Heavyweight Champion and having the reign he had, that I realised just what he could do for not just me, but the Garcia family.
Sophia Clarke: What’s it been like working with an EAW Hall of Famer and bonafide legend?
Jalyn Garcia: Nothing is easy under him. I remember he brought someone else under his wing, a friend from back home, but he couldn’t keep up. The days are long and when the day ends, I still study. Books. Tape. Whatever he can get he or I get our hands on, I’ve got to study. Bumps and bruises? It doesn’t matter, get through the day, get through the training and then I can rest. To some people, it may seem inhumane and down right abuse, but the pay off is that I’m learning from one of the greatest of all time; I know I’m not just carrying my family legacy, but his too.
Sophia Clarke: Let’s dive more into the New Breed Championship. Should you knock off Justin and win your first championship, how do you plan to elevate that championship?
Jalyn Garcia: There’s only one answer; to be the best. I don’t want to linger week to week having to fight whatever contenders get dug up. I want to take the New Breed title to the main event, JUST like he did at Road to Redemption in 2014. I want to face the best that Voltage has and even then, I’ll travel to other brands and face THEIR best just to prove that the New Breed division produces the future of this company. I’m not going to defend it against the weak, against people who are just going to fade away; I want to build up the contenders who face me to the next level just as I progress forwards and take the title to greater heights. And in one way? I want to beat Jamie’s record. What is it? Two hundred and forty days? I’ll beat it.
Sophia Clarke: How cool would it be to walk into your first ever Pain for Pride as a defending champion?
Jalyn Garcia: Isn’t that the dream, Sophia? Isn’t that what everyone dreams of doing? Being Champion on the greatest stage we have? I was sitting beneath a curtain at Mercedes-Benz Stadium watching that main event; the atmosphere, the crowd, I could feel the chills race down my spine just standing there, what is it going to feel like competing on it? As Champion? It’s stuff dreams are made of.
Sophia Clarke: Do you have anything you want to say directly to Justin Windgate should he be watching this interview?
Jalyn Garcia: Justin, you’ve been a great, great Champion thus far. A great story, a great return capped off with a great, great reign. But all great things come to an end. All Champions drag themselves forward and forward until they reach their terminus where their championship gold is ripped away from their hands. It’s just part of the cycle, Justin, no King ever rules forever and come Grand Rampage, I’ll alleviate you of your Championship, of your position at the top of the New Breed division. And you can watch, as I reign, and take that title to heights you could NEVER reach, that you could NEVER even begin to think were possible. You’re great, but I am the student of one of the greatest and I have been trained, I have been prepared to achieve GREATNESS.
Sophia Clarke: Thank you for your time.
(Jalyn nods and the two start to stand up as Voltage fades into the last commercial break of the evening.)
(Commercial break for TNT… DYNOMITE!)
(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 scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Alive’ by P.O.D plays up to astounding cheers as Rex McAllister makes his way out to the ring. He looks around at the supportive sea of people as he gives a nod and begins to make his way down to the ring interacting with fans in the process)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Sea Isle, New Jersey… weighing in at 238 pounds… REX MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Here comes Rex McAllister into our main event tonight, this is his first time in the limelight in a while and I’m sure he wants to make the best out of the situation he’s been given.
James Peters: Yes he’s been given the chance to face the EAW Champion tonight, imagine what prosperity he would get if he was able to beat her? Could that possibly allude to Rex being worthy of a championship opportunity? Even if I know Rex is going to make this match worth while one way or another.
Persephone: Even if Rex isn’t, I’m going to make my time with him tonight just in his raw beauty worth my while.
James Peters: Ok, Gavin.
(Rex enters the ring and circles around for a moment before going to the top rope and spreading his arms out to the cheers of the crowd before taking his jacket off and jumping off the top rope heading to his corner as ‘Alive’ fades out. ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX then proceeds to play up across the arena to booming cheers as Andrea Valentine makes her way out to the ring. She has the EAW Championship around her waist as she raises a hand up in the air with a bright smile before making her way down to the ring high fiving the EAW Universe along the way)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Orlando, Florida… weighing in at 110 pounds… She is the EAW CHAMPION… ANDREA VALENTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for the champion Andrea Valentine this is her first match back after the brutal Electrified Steel Cage of Death that occurred at Shock Value. There’s no doubt that she’s coming into this match not 100%. But then again, it is Voltage, who knows she might be better than ever!
James Peters: Well we wouldn’t and couldn’t tell. All we know is that no matter the status of our World Champion the fact of the matter is she’s going to still continuously come into this match and give it her all, and we’re about to see that tonight. But who wins can be contende. Andrea has shown though that no matter the circumstances she can rise up to occasion, can that be shown tonight?
Persephone: I don’t know who she is, it’s probably because I’ve been gone so long overseas, but that doesn’t look like a champion. Do they just give anyone a Championship nowadays, remember the time when Rex was the World Champion?! :blessed:
(Andrea enters the ring and goes to the top rope raising the EAW Championship in the air high in the sky for the crowd to see and cheer for the champion as she jumps off and raises it high again taking a nice circle around the ring before heading to her corner as ‘Roll With Me’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as our main event of the evening is starting off right now! Rex and Andrea going for a lockup wasting no time in doing so. Rex with the obvious size advantage as Andrea has to rely on manipulating Rex around. Andrea quickly locking in a headlock on Rex trying to take him down to the ground. But Rex wrapping one arm around her neck as he forces Andrea to let go of her grip on him. Rex manipulating that arm of Andrea now as he’s forcing Andrea down to the ground as he quickly locks in a headlock on her!
James Peters: Andrea trying to escape out of it squirming around before Rex can do any impending damage. Rex trying to keep Andrea on the ground but Andrea is lifting her leg up as she attempts to turn Rex around! BACKSLIDE PIN ON REX OUT OF NOWHERE AS ANDREA IS TRYING TO GET A QUICK MATCH OUT OF THIS!
Persephone: Sexy Rexy obviously escaping blondie’s grasp. What? Did you actually expect a match with the pure endurance god to end so early? Anyways Rexy slipping up to his feet as the slightly slower blondie whatever the hell her name is pulls herself up as well. Rexy trying to run over to blondie and try to lock in a headlock! But blonde just ramming a knee right into Rexy’s gorgeous six pack!
Rich Russillo: Wish she was talking about me- I MEAN! REX CRUMBLING OVER! Rex falling to his knees as Andrea runs to the ropes and back hoping to take him down. But Rex quickly rolling out of the way before she can do anything! Rex up to his feet as he runs over to Andrea! ANDREA TAKING REX BACK DOWN TO A KNEE WITH A SPINNING BACK FIST WHICH IS SURE TO HURT! Rex is stunned as Andrea runs to the ropes again looking to try again on what she was trying to do. RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER TAKES REX RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: Rex quickly rolling away trying to retreat away from Andrea just for a moment. But Andrea is not letting that slide as she grabs Rex by the arm and pulls him up to his feet. But Rex clocking her right into the face as he manages to keep her up and off her feet! REX CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING SIDE SLAM! Andrea is absolutely stunned as she sits up. Yet Rex kicking her right into the face as that sets Andrea up! REX WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT!
Persephone: WHAT ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL FLEXIBILITY AND ATHLETICISM FROM SEXY REXY AS BLONDIE IS SURELY DONE FOR! Wait why the hell is she getting up? Oh well guess she wants to get humiliated more than she already was. Rexy with a big irish whip sending blondie into the corner as he begins to sprint at her while blondie is distracted! REXY WITH A BIG JUMPING CORNER CLOTHESLINE!
Rich Russillo: Andrea falling into a sitting position in the corner as Rex quickly pulls her up to her feet. Andrea is still stunned as Rex let’s go of her and runs towards the ropes looking to take her down. ANDREA MOVING OUT OF THE WAY OF REX’S ASSAULT AS SHE GRABS HIM AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG! Rex caught by surprise as he slowly pulls himself up still in confusion as Andrea is waiting for him. ANDREA OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A METEORA TO A KNEELING REX MCALLISTER!
James Peters: Rex is absolutely rocked once more as he quickly retreats away rolling over to the apron. Andrea gets up to her feet and closes in on him as he begins to pull himself up. But Rex ramming his shoulder blade right into the gut of Andrea! Andrea stumbles backwards as Rex slips through the ropes and into the ring and runs towards Andrea! BICYCLE KICK RIGHT TO THE JAW OF ANDREA SENDING HER BACKWARDS! Rex isn’t done though as Andrea falls down to a knee as he quickly grabs her. ELBOW SMASH! ELBOW SMASH! ELBOW SMASH!
Persephone: Look at Sexy Rexy the next world champion asserting his dominance upon the frail blonde- wait why the hell is she still up on her feet?! This is unfair! This is a screwjob! NO! THE BLONDIE MANAGES TO SWEEP THE LEG OF REXY! WHAT KIND OF BLASPHEMY IS THIS! I COULD HAVE HER SUED RIGHT NOW!
Rich Russillo: :whoa: It’s not that serious my love. Rex taken down to the ground quickly as Andrea is not wasting any time as she pulls Rex up to her feet. Rex punching Andrea away through as he runs at here! XOXO! INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER OUT OF NOWHERE AS REX IS KNOCKED FLAT DOWN TO THE GROUND! ANDREA LEAPING FORWARD AS SHE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER ON A DOWN REX MCALLISTER!
James Peters: REX WITH A KICK OUT! It’s going to take a lot more to take down Rex McAllister that’s what I can say for certain. Andrea up to her feet as Rex is on all fours I think that’s given Andrea a opportunity as she still wants to keep up that momentum. STEP-UP SENTON CONNECTS ONTO THE REX MASTER! Rex in pain now but that isnt stopping Andrea from pulling him up once more. Rex quickly sending Andrea into a irish whip though trying to get a one up on her! BUT ANDREA! HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW SMASH CONNECTS OUT OF NOWHERE AS BOTH OF THEM ARE KNOCKED DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: THIS IS A SCREWJOB! REXY IS SUPPOSED TO BE WINNING BY NOW NOT BLONDIE! Whatever whatever I always believed in my Rexy and I’m sure he can take down the blondie. Blondie getting up to her feet as Rexy slowly follows pursuit as he gets up as well. Rexy wasting no time running over to blondie! LOOK AT THAT RAW STRENGTH AS REXY TACKLES BLONDIE RIGHT TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: Rex managing to take Andrea down before she can do anything else in this match. Rex taking advantage as he quickly begins to pound fist right into the face of Andrea before swiftly bringing her up to her feet whilst she’s stunned! OLYMPIC SLAM AS REX USES THE MOMENTUM TO SLAM ANDREA RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND! REX GOING FOR A PIN ATTEMPT NOW!
James Peters: ANDREA POWERS OUT! Rex slowly pulling himself up to his feet as that all too familiar frustration begins to pop up on his face creeping slowly in as this match continues to go on to no end. Rex pulling Andrea up to her feet quickening the pace once more as he slowly lifts her off her feet! But Andrea quickly dropping her weight as she manages to grab ahold of Rex! Rex is stunned as Andrea, barely managing to keep herself upright to the corner with Rex still locked in a headlock! TORNADO DDT SPIKES REX DOWN TO THE GROUND AS ANDREA COLLAPSES DOWN AS WELL!
Rich Russillo: This match has already taken its toll on both competitors it seems, but Andrea needs to keep going if she really wants to defeat Rex McAllister. Rex is one of the best wrestlers we have on Voltage, so it’s clear Andrea is gonna have to give a lot in order to defeat him. There’s simply no way Rex would make this match easy for her. Both competitors are getting back up- BUT ANDREA JUMPS UP AND HITS A STEP UP SENTON WHILE REX WAS ON ALL FOURS! THAT SEEMED OUT OF NOWHERE NEARLY, BUT IT’S STUFF LIKE THAT THAT SHOWS EXACTLY WHY ANDREA IS CHAMPION! It’s almost like she was able to pull that energy right out of thin air!
Persephone: Oh come on! Andrea just got lucky. I’m sure Rexy is just holding back or something, there’s no way she’d ever stand a chance against him at his best.
James Peters: Why would Rex ever hold back? Andrea is the EAW Champion, he’s probably bringing even more than his one hundred percent tonight.
Persephone: I don’t want to hear it, anyways, Andrea is going for the cover, please kick out Rexy.
Persephone: YES! Oh thank God, that was actually kind of worrying. I don’t know what I would’ve done if Rex actually lost like that. Andrea’s getting back to her feet, and unfortunately instead of leaving the ring and forfeiting the match, it looks like she’s climbing up to the top rope.
James Peters: But look, Rex managed to get back up! Rex tried to go after Andrea, but Andrea saw it coming and kicked Rex away, and now she gets into position- ONLY FOR REX TO PUSH HER FEET OUT FROM UNDER HER! ANDREA IS STILL ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT SHE’S CLEARLY IN A VULNERABLE STATE! REX IS BEGINNING TO CLIMB UP TO JOIN HER, AND HE’S LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE! REX TRYING TO GET ANDREA IN THAT FRONT FACELOCK WHILE ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT ANDREA STILL HAS SOME LIFE LEFT IN HER! CAN SHE ESCAPE REX’S HANDS??
Rich Russillo: ANDREA IS HITTING MULTIPLE PUNCHES TO REX’S SIDE, AND THIS COULD BE BAD FOR MCALLISTER! REX ISN’T GOING DOWN EASILY THOUGH, AS THERE’S A HEADBUTT TO THE EAW CHAMPION! ANDREA LOOKS SLIGHTLY DIZZY, BUT THERE’S ONE OF HER OWN NOW! REX STRUGGLING TO STAY ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT NOW HE HITS ANOTHER HEADBUTT! ANDREA LOOKS ALMOST OUT OF IT- AND WOW! IT LOOKS LIKE ANDREA ATTEMPTED ONE MORE HEADBUTT, BUT REX COUNTERED IT WITH A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE! REX GRABBING ANDREA IN THAT FRONT FACELOCK NOW, AND WOW! HE HITS IT, REX HITS THE SUPERPLEX!
Persephone: YES! YOU GOT THIS SEXY REXY, NOW PIN HER! PIN… Her..? Ugh… Rex looks hurt too.
James Peters: Well it’s a superplex, I wouldn’t expect him to recover immediately!
Persephone: :skip: Then why would he go for a move that hurts him too? God this is so stupid, wait! Rex is crawling over to Andrea! YES! REX PINS ANDREA, THAT’S IT! THIS MATCH IS DONE, HURRY UP AND COUNT TO THREE REF!
Persephone: WHAT? NO, NO WAY! Are you kidding me, how did she manage to kick out? That’s not fair, this isn’t fair at all Rex should’ve won just now!
James Peters: Well, you seem to forget who Rex is dealing with here Persephone. This is the EAW World Champion, do you really think she’s gonna go down without putting up an incredible fight? There’s no chance of that happening, so if you really want Rex to win this match, you better hope he has even more in the tank than that. Rex McAllister is one of Voltage’s best, but so is Andrea Valentine. Right now, Rex needs to do something, AND I THINK HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO AS HE GRABS ANDREA BY THE LEGS!
Rich Russillo: BOSTON CRAB BY REX MCALLISTER!
Rich Russillo: REX MCALLISTER HAS A BOSTON CRAB LOCKED IN ON ANDREA VALENTINE, THINGS AREN’T LOOKING TOO GOOD FOR THE EAW CHAMPION RIGHT NOW! ANDREA IS FLAILING HER ARMS AROUND, TRYING TO GRAB ONTO SOMETHING, BUT THE ROPES ARE OUT OF HER REACH! REX COULD BE LOOKING TO MAKE ANDREA TAP OUT HERE, THE CHAMPION NEEDS TO MAKE A MOVE AND FAST, BECAUSE EVERY SECOND ANDREA SPENDS IN THAT SUBMISSION, THIS MATCH JUST CONTINUES TO SLIP OUT OF HER FINGERTIPS! COULD WE SEE THE EAW CHAMPION LOSE BY SUBMISSION!?
Persephone: YES WE CAN! TAP OUT ANDREA, TAP OUT ALREADY! THERE’S NO WAY ANDREA COULD GET OUT OF THAT SUBMISSION, IT’S JUST NOT POSSIBLE WHEN REX IS TWICE HER SIZE! TWO HUNDRED THIRTY-EIGHT POUNDS OF PURE MUSCLE, SHE’S GOT TO GIVE UP! WAIT, NO, NO! ANDREA, WHY AREN’T YOU GIVING UP? THAT IDIOT, SHE’S SOMEHOW MANAGING TO PULL HERSELF TO THE ROPES! HOW’S THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?
James Peters: I remember Andrea showing some of the strength she has inside of her back at King of Elite in her match against Terry Chambers! Honestly, I’m not entirely surprised she’s able to do this! Andrea inching closer and closer to those ropes- AND REX TURNS HIMSELF AROUND TO TRY AND PULL ANDREA AWAY, BUT THAT JUST GAVE ANDREA THE OPENING SHE NEEDED TO PULL HER LEGS OUT OF HIS ARMS BEFORE KICKING HIM AWAY! Both competitors now are getting back to their feet as Andrea holds her back, but now she charges in at Rex before grabbing his arm! XOXO!!! THE XOXO CONNECTS, AND BOTH COMPETITORS DROP TO THE MAT! WAIT, NO! ANDREA IS DRAGGING HERSELF OVER TO REX! A LOT WAS TAKEN OUT OF HER FROM THAT SUPERPLEX, BUT SOMEHOW SHE MAKES THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: IT’S NOT OVER THOUGH! THIS MATCH IS STILL ON, REX IS STILL FIGHTING! SOMEHOW REX MANAGED TO KICK OUT OF THE XOXO, NOW WHAT’S ANDREA SUPPOSED TO DO!? If I were Andrea Valentine, I’d probably be freaking out right now after that. Both competitors are worn and torn, yet somehow Andrea wasn’t able to finish the job just yet! Of course, at this rate Andrea probably doesn’t even have enough energy in her to throw a tantrum. Rex McAllister is showing the world why he is a former World Champion, and why he’s most likely one of the favorites to win Grand Rampage, and will stay a favorite up until the actual match.
Persephone: Sexy Rexy is so amazing! There’s no way Andrea could win this match, let’s be honest. Rex is just too good, she should just quit while she’s ahead to be honest. Wait, no, what are you doing Andrea this is the opposite of quitting. Andrea is climbing up to the top rope, but what does she expect? Rex will find a way out of whatever she’s planning, because Rex McAllister is the best wrestler in the entire world-
James Peters: MAGIC HOUR- WAIT NO! YOU MAY ACTUALLY BE RIGHT FOR ONCE PERSEPHONE, BECAUSE SOMEHOW REX MANAGED TO GET HIS KNEES UP! REX IS STILL IN THIS MATCH, AND ANDREA LOOKS HURT, WHAT’S HE GONNA DO!? REX BURSTS UP TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES TOWARDS ANDREA! REX EFFECT- WAIT NO! ANDREA PULLS REX’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM, DROPPING HIM TO THE MAT! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP BY ANDREA, RIGHT ONTO REX’S MIDSECTION! Somehow Andrea is staying in this, as is Rex, honestly I have no clue how on Earth this match is going to end!
Rich Russillo: Andrea is getting back to her feet, and to be honest Rex isn’t too far behind. The two now beginning to circle the ring as Rex holds his midsection, and now the two lock up once again! Rex immediately attempts to get Andrea in a headlock, but Andrea drops down and pulls Rex into a school boy roll up! Rex immediately kicks out, but that allows Andrea to get Rex in a headlock of her own! Rex immediately lifts her up, but Andrea flips onto her feet! Andrea now trying to pull Rex down possibly for a fujiwara armbar, but Rex is able to counter it with an arm drag!
Persephone: Sexy Rexy grabs Andrea as soon as she lands, AND THERE’S A BEAUTIFUL GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT MY BEAUTIFUL REXY, HE’S NOT FINISHED YET! SO AMAZING, SO TALENTED! REX PICKS ANDREA UP, AND HE HITS A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX! REX STILL ISN’T FINISHED, HE’S PICKING ANDREA UP ONE MORE TIME, AND- WAIT NO! NO NO NO! ANDREA LANDED ON HER FEET AFTER A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX ATTEMPT, AND SHE JUST DROP KICKED REX IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! EVERYTHING IS GOING WRONG, WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!?
James Peters: Rex is somehow still able to get back to his feet, but not quick enough as Andrea irish whips him into the ropes! CLOTHESLINE BY- NO! ANDREA DUCKED THE CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT BY REX! ENZUIGIRI BY ANDREA! THAT ENZUIGIRI CAUSED REX TO FALL THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND HE GOES OUT THE RING BUT HE MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET! ANDREA QUICKLY LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE THOUGH AS SHE RUNS THE ROPES, SUICIDE DIVE BY ANDREA VALENTIN- WAIT, NO! REX, SOMEHOW HE MANAGED TO CATCH ANDREA! REX CAUGHT ANDREA RIGHT OUT OF THE SKY, AND THERE’S A SUPLEX OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: That was incredible! Rex somehow hit Andrea with an amazing suplex, and now it looks like he’s not looking to do any more outside damage than he needs to as he rolls Andrea right back into the ring! Rex slides into the ring following right behind, AND BEFORE ANDREA COULD GET A CHANCE TO RECOVER, REX DEADLIFTS HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION! BUT LOOK, BEFORE REX COULD ACTUALLY CONNECT WITH ANYTHING, ANDREA IS GOING FOR MULTIPLE PUNCHES TO REX’S HEAD! ANDREA IS JUST RAINING DOWN FISTS ON REX, AND WAIT, ANDREA TURNS HERSELF AROUND INTO AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION! ATOMIC BLONDE!
Persephone: NO- WAIT YES! IT DIDN’T CONNECT!
James Peters: REX JUST TOSSED ANDREA OFF OF HIM BEFORE SHE COULD HIT THE REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER, AND NOW HE BACKS UP BEFORE DEADLIFTING ANDREA UP! GERMAN SUPLEX- WAIT, NO! ONCE AGAIN ANDREA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET, AND NOW SHE RUNS THE ROPES! RUNNING METEORA BY ANDREA VALENTINE!
Persephone: NO, STOP! ANDREA’S PINNING REX! KICK OUT REXY, PLEASE! PLEASE KICK OUT, DON’T LET HER WIN LIKE THAT!
Persephone: YES, REX PUSHES ANDREA OFF OF HIM! REX IS STILL IN THIS MATCH, AND NOW BOTH COMPETITORS ONCE AGAIN ARE GETTING BACK TO THEIR FEET, BUT THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS HERE IS REX! LET’S GO REX!
James Peters: Andrea attempted to hit Rex with a huge boot, but Rex managed to just barely move out of the way! Rex pulling Andrea into a backslide pin, but Andrea immediately gets out of it! Andrea running onto Rex’s back- AND SHE GOES FOR ANOTHER STEP UP SENTON BUT REX MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Rex now, just pulling Andrea up into his arms, AND HE SENDS HER FLYING WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Andrea is just barely even managing to survive right now! Things aren’t looking good for the Champion here!
Rich Russillo: You’re right about that one, this match is slipping away from Andrea right now! Andrea pulls herself into the corner, BUT MOW REX CHARGES IN- WAIT NO! ANDREA PICKS HER FEET UP AND KICKS REX AWAY! IT LOOKS LIKE ANDREA STILL HAS SOME FIGHT LEFT IN HER, AND NOW SHE CHARGES IN- JUST TO BE TURNED INSIDE OUT WITH A CLOTHESLINE!
Persephone: Yes! Andrea is down, now all Rex has to do is finish this! Put Andrea away!
Rich Russillo: I think Rex is looking to do just that! Andrea is somehow getting back up, even after all that, and now Rex runs the ropes! REX EFFECT- WAIT, NO! ANOTHER COUNTER, BUT THIS TIME IT’S ANDREA PULLING REX INTO A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP! SHE’S GONNA STEAL IT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… THE EAW CHAMPION, AAANNNDDRREEAAA VVAAAALLEEENNTIIIINNEE!!!!!
Persephone: ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
James Peters: ANDREA WINS! Andrea stole the match just when Rex was about to put an end to the match his way! He had the match in his hands, but Andrea took it away just like that, wow!
Rich Russillo: I guess Andrea deserves some credit for pulling that off. Rex is incredibly talented, it’s not easy getting the better of him like that.
Persephone: I hate this. I hate everything about this.
(‘Roll With Me’ hits, and the crowd explodes as Andrea manages to get to her feet. Rex gets up as well, and he has a look of pure shock in his face. He asks the referee, and the referee states that it was three, allowing Andrea to celebrate her win. Rex eventually accepts his loss, and goes up to shake Andrea’s hand. The two shake hands, showing a clear sign of respect towards one another, before Rex pulls her in closer. The two stare at each other eye to eye, causing a lot of tension.)
Rex McAllister (Off Mic): Should you make it to Pain for Pride as the EAW Champion, I hope you know I will be coming for your title as your next Grand Rampage winner.
Andrea Valentine (Off Mic): I understand. Good luck.
(The two competitors smirk at one another before letting go.)
James Peters: The two sharing words after that handshake, and it looks like these two understand that there’s a very good chance that at Pain for Pride, we could see these two face off once again, this time for the EAW Championship.
(Rex begins walking up the ramp back through the curtain, but before he makes it backstage, Malcolm Jones walks out to the stage, causing a huge mixed reaction, but mostly cheers as he smiles at Rex.)
Malcolm Jones (Off Mic): We all know I’m winning that title, so I guess we’ll be seeing a Clash of Kingdoms rematch then, huh?
(Rex shrugs his shoulders, before slowly walking backwards through the curtain.)
Rex McAllister (Off Mic): Doesn’t matter to me, as long as I end Pain for Pride as EAW Champion.
(Rex McAllister disappears through the curtain, and Malcolm Jones begins to lock eyes with Andrea Valentine, who’s still in the ring.)
James Peters: Oh man. This is going to be the match to see at Grand Rampage.
Rich Russillo: I don’t know if I can predict who’s gonna win that one, but I will say this. Andrea’s title reign might just be in more danger than ever.
(Andrea raises her EAW Championship as ‘Roll With Me’ continues playing, and the two don’t take their eyes off of each other as Voltage fades out for the final time.)
(EAW logo buzzes.)
