(EAW intro plays.)
(Instead of the usual highlight video that plays, there is a massive glitch. There is some confusion, and after a moment of static, the live feed immediately cuts to the ringside area where James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone Tsitsipas are seen standing behind the broadcast table. All three of them appear to be completely baffled over what just happened.)
James Peters: Uhhhh… alright. Well, welcome to another episode of the greatest wrestling program in the world… SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE! I’m James Peters, and as always I’m joined by my partner in crime, Rich Russillo, and the ever so delightful Persephone Tsitsipas.
Rich Russillo: That’s right, James. Now normally, we would have a highlight video playing that recapped the action last week, but I guess it was just too GOAT to be handled this week.
Persephone: Or maybe some kind person in the truck didn’t want to subject us to highlights of that utterly ridiculous match between Sexy Rexy and that dumb fucking whore.
James Peters: I don’t know, Seph. I think pretty much the majority of the EAW Universe wants to see you get beat down by Raven once again.
Rich Russillo: Personally, I want to see you flash your tits again (.)(.) haaaaaaaay.
(Persephone rolls her eyes in absolute disgust.)
Persephone: Ugh. Well at least Rexy knows what real titties look like now. These are clearly the best that money can buy.
James Peters: :skip: So they’re not real…
Persephone: You know, we do have shit to talk about and let’s talk about how Rexy and that harlot are the NEW Unified Tag Team Champions!!!! I can do without Raven, but ohmygod… Rex with gold around his waist I just wanna lick him…
Rich Russillo: :oh:
James Peters: Jesus Christ.
Rich Russillo: Gateway to Glory was a great night for Fire and Ice. They dethroned Drizzy and Vizzy in an absolute classic. The soon-to-be Hall of Famer continues to build his legacy. Rex became a Grand Slam champion!
James Peters: Gateway to Glory was also a hell of a night for Sarah Price. After everything this young woman has been through in the past couple of months, she finally silenced her doubters by dethroning the dominant Specialists Champion, Darcy May Morgan!
Persephone: I honestly could give a fuck less about Sarah winning that piece of tin championship. It’s literally whatever. But if we really wanna treat it like she did something of note, then go Sarah, I guess. She’s probably going to lose it on her first defense anyway.
James Peters: :skip:
Rich Russillo: I guess we’ll see where Sarah goes from here, but come Fighting Spirit, she will now be teaming up with the World Heavyweight Champion, Drake King, to take on The Unique Ones. That should be a hell of a contest, especially when you consider that Sarah doesn’t even like Drake!
(‘Land of the Innocent’ by Feathers hits, and moments later, Sarah Price walks out to the stage, making her first ever entrance as the new EAW Specialists Champion. She has the Championship around her waist, and a microphone in her hand. She has a proud smile on her face as she walks down the ramp and gets into the ring.)
James Peters: Speaking of! It looks like the newly crowned Specialists Champion Sarah Price is here opening up Voltage after her huge title win, and I’m interested to see what she’s gonna say.
Persephone: I’m pretty sure whatever she’s going to say will put me right to sleep. Who authorized this cunt kicking off Voltage?? I thought we were going to have a contract signing between Andrea and Mr. DEDEDE??
Rich Russillo: I guess we’ll just have to wait longer for that my angel.
Persephone: Your what?!
(Sarah Price steps into the ring, and takes a few seconds to think about all that happened at Gateway to Glory before beginning to speak.)
Sarah Price: At Gateway to Glory, I did what seemed to be impossible at one point. I defeated Darcy May Morgan, and in the process I became the new Specialists Champion. Honestly even now I still can’t fully believe it. Just a few months ago in the Specialists Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber I was one of the first few people to be eliminated from the match, but now I just dethroned the woman who came out of that match as the Champion. To think that in just a few months I was able to accomplish this, it makes me happy. It shows that nothing is really impossible. I’m glad to be able to stand here and call myself Specialists Champion, because thanks to the platform I have now, I can really push for a better tomorrow. Using this Championship I can really work to try and help out around here, and continue trying to set an example for everyone. I’m so grateful for all of you that stuck by my side throughout my time here, throughout all the ups and downs, and I’m also grateful to have had someone as amazing as Sierra Bradford come into my life.
(Sarah’s eyes begin to water, and she stops for a second before continuing to speak, clearly still happy about Sierra making an appearance at Gateway to Glory.)
Sarah Price: SASS is forever, and Sierra, thank you. Not just for being there at Gateway to Glory. Thank you for everything. SASS becoming a team will forever be the greatest thing to ever happen to me, and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to put into words how thankful I am for you. But hopefully my actions can speak louder than my words. Sierra, whenever you’re ready I’ll be waiting, because once you’re able to return you can get a shot at the Specialists Championship. I want you to get an opportunity at this title because you deserve to be a Champion too. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and hopefully I’m able to return the favor by doing this. I’ll always love SASS, and I’ll always love you Sierra. Seeing you at Gateway to Glory was very heartwarming, I can’t wait for you to come back. Now onto less happy matters, at Gateway to Glory something happened to my Fighting Spirit match that I really wish I could’ve avoided. I was supposed to be facing Komatsu Ogawa and Shawn Sturgis in a two-on-one handicap match, but that’s not the case now. In most cases I wouldn’t mind having someone help me fight those two bullies and put them in their place, but it’s pretty hard for me to be excited seeing who my partner’s going to be.
(The smile on Sarah’s face goes away as she continues speaking about her upcoming tag team match.)
Sarah Price: I’m obviously not really excited to team up with Drake King of all people, and you shouldn’t have to ask why. He’s not the type of person I ever want to be associated with, but being on the same team as him at Fighting Spirit won’t deter me at all. After all, we may be on the same team but I don’t really need to work with Drake. I could just not tag him in at all, then I could face the Unique Ones in that handicap match just like I wanted before Drake decided to stick his nose in my business. Even on my own, I’m going to make sure I defeat Sturgis and Ogawa, because people like those two can’t be allowed to run rampant on Voltage. I’ll make sure to take them down a notch, but I won’t stop with those two. I promise, I will do my part in making EAW the PG product families can watch together, and for me to do my part I know I need to continue to get better. I’m going to make sure I grow and become the best wrestler I can be, as well as the best person I can be. Not just for me, but for all of you guys. Thank you.
(‘Land of the Innocent’ kicks back up, and Sarah exits the ring and begins walking up the ramp, once again with a grateful smile on her face.)
James Peters: Well there you have it. Sarah Price may be in a tag team match come Fighting Spirit, but she doesn’t exactly plan to tag Drake in at all.
Rich Russillo: And on top of that, Sarah is willing to give Sierra Bradford a shot at the Specialists Championship once she returns. That’s some big news if you ask me.
James Peters: Honestly, I think Sarah Price is going to make a great Specialists Champion. She managed to get this far doing things her way, so maybe she isn’t wrong. Maybe the sky really is the limit for Sarah.
Persephone: Really? You don’t actually believe that, do you?
James Peters: What?
Persephone: Forget it.
(Sarah Price makes it up to the stage, before stopping and turning back around towards the empty arena. She takes the Specialists Championship off of her waist and looks down at it, before holding it up. She has a smile on her face, and-)
James Peters: WHAT!? WHAT THE HELL!?!? WHAT JUST HAPPENED HERE!?
Rich Russillo: SARAH PRICE WAS JUST TAKEN OUT FROM BEHIND!! SARAH WAS JUST NOW FINISHING CELEBRATING HER HUGE TITLE WIN, BUT SOMEONE JUST KNOCKED SARAH OUT!
James Peters: WHO JUST- WAIT!! IS THAT WHO I THINK IT IS!?
Rich Russillo: NO WAY!! IT CAN’T BE, IS SHE REALLY HERE!?!?
Persephone: Oh my God that woman is hideous.
James Peters: CONSTANCE BLEVINS IS BACK!! CONSTANCE BLEVINS JUST TOOK SARAH PRICE OUT FROM BEHIND!! CONSTANCE JUST ATTACKED SARAH AND SHE ISN’T FINISHED YET! CONSTANCE IS ON TOP OF SARAH AND SHE’S JUST PUMMELING HER WITH THESE PUNCHES, OVER AND OVER! SARAH IS BASICALLY DEFENSELESS HERE!!
Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE NOW PICKING SARAH UP, AND I DON’T KNOW IF SARAH EVEN REALIZES WHO’S ATTACKING HER YET! LIONESSTOUCH!!! CONSTANCE JUST LAID SARAH OUT WITH THE LIONESSTOUCH!! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION WAS JUST NOW LAID OUT BY A RETURNING CONSTANCE BLEVINS, WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON!?
(Constance picks up the Specialists Championship, before crouching down and looking at Sarah, who still seems to be unconscious.)
Constance Blevins (Off-Mic): The Specialists Championship is going to look mighty nice on me. Watch your back, Princess.
(‘Angel of Darkness’ by Alex Christenen hits, and Constance smacks Sarah in the back of her head before dropping the Specialists Championship and slowly walking backstage. Sarah Price is still down and out, with the Championship on the ground next to her as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(A commercial break for Atkins featuring Rob Lowe and Terry Chambers talking about the shakes and their respective low carb weight diets.)
(Voltage returns and fades back into the ringside area.)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage. I have a question for you: what’s better than a Voltage debut match?
Persephone: Watching the paint dry.
Rich Russillo: Wrong answer! The correct answer is TWO debuts are better than one! And that’s exactly what we are going to see tonight! Seth Osiris AND Kieran Haviq are about to make their mark here on Voltage and show if they have what it takes to become true Elitists.
(“Bow Down” by I Prevail plays up as Seth Osiris shows up on stage. He walks down the ramp and looks as focused as ever)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from the Swamps of Louisiana… weighing in at 212 pounds… SETH OSIRIS!!!
James Peters: Hold on just a minute! Seth Osiris had already debuted last week in a very impressive back and forth match against Maxwell! What are you on about!
Rich Russillo: Didn’t you listen to what Seth said earlier this week? His match against Maxwell was impressive, sure, but it was just a setup to the real action of this week’s Voltage. He was just testing the waters but now he is ready for the real thing.
James Peters: That’s not how Wrestling works, Rich. You only get ONE debut match and that’s it. But you know what? Seth Osiris is absolutely right. This week he is going to break Kieran Haviq and show the world that he absolutely has what it takes to make it here. And IF he does that, then sure! We can just write off last week as a “warm up” round.
(Seth Osiris enters the ring and stretches his arms in the corner as his music fades out.)
(“Empire” by Hollywood Undead blasts throughout the empty arena as Kieran Haviq makes his entrance)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Chelmsford Essex… weighing in at 215 pounds… Wrestling’s Waking Nightmare… KIERAN HAVIQ!!!
Rich Russillo: We don’t know much about Kieran Haviq but that’s not necessarily a bad thing! It simply means we are in for a surprise tonight!
James Peters: What we do know is that he is a ruthless fighter who is capable of doing everything he can in order to get a win over his opponents! We shall see if he lives up to his hype here tonight!
(Kieran Haviq enters the ring as the match gets underway)
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: And the fight is on! Seth Osiris versus Kieran Haviq, this is going to be great.
Persephone: On one side we have someone who wants to beat up people just for the sake of it. On the other side we have… someone who wants to beat people just for the sake of it.
James Peters: It’s not that simple at all, Persephone. As I mentioned earlier, Seth Osiris is actually a Mental Hospital worker. It will definitely be interesting to see how he will be able to use the skills he learned on his job in this Wrestling career.
Rich Russillo: Cut the chatter, guys. The match is on. Seth Osiris goes for a handshake and Kieran Haviq seems to agree. He reaches for his han… NOPE! NEVERMIND! What a cheap shot by Kieran Haviq! He just hit Seth with a huge slap across his face! He surely wasn’t expecting that.
James Peters: Now Haviq is laughing, but I’m not sure if that’s a wise move… Seth charges in! He is attacking Kieran Haviq with an impressive combination of punches and kicks! Not particularly elegant to look at, but still effective! Kieran Haviq raises his forearms and tries to parry the blows for as much as he possibly can, but he is being pushed back to the corner. Seth Osiris in full control now, stiff kick to the gut! Kieran Haviq is gasping for air as Seth Osiris takes a few steps back…
Rich Russillo: Seth charges in! Running Double Knees to the corner! OOOF! He got all of it… Kieran Haviq is stunned, he is stumbling forward but it doesn’t seem like he knows where he is right now… RELEASE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! SETH OSIRIS JUST LAUNCHED KIERAN ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE RING! NO WAY!
Persephone: Are you seriously trying to tell me that this creep works as a therapist? He looks like a Professional Bum.
James Peters: Well, you know what they say, Persephone. Never judge a book by its cover and from what we can see now, Kieran Haviq might have made that mistake earlier this week cause it seems to me he has no clue as to what is going on here. Seth Osiris might just be able to end this match in a matter of minutes if… oh, wait a minute! Kieran Haviq has just left the ring and he is now asking for a timeout.
Persephone: There are no timeouts in wrestling! Get back in the ring and do what we pay you to do!
Rich Russillo: “We”?
Persephone: Oh, I’m sorry, dummy. Let me rephrase that. Get back in the ring and do what THEY pay ME to suffer through each and every week. HAPPY NOW?
Rich Russillo: Yes… but actually no. Either way, it looks like Seth Osiris isn’t falling for Kieran’s mind games! See, this is where Seth’s background is coming in handy! He is perfectly aware of what is going through the mind of his opponent and he is not falling for it! He knows Kieran is just trying to mess with his head and bait him outside of the ring. Seth is one step ahead though and he is just waiting for him to get back inside the squared circle. He knows very well Kieran Haviq cannot afford a loss by count out!
James Peters: Well… it looks like you are right! Kieran Haviq is in fact sliding back inside the ring and Seth Osiris is right back on top of him! No! Actually, Kieran manages to push him off for a second… he goes for a clothesline but Seth ducks underneath, Kieran rebounds off the ropes… FLAPJACK OFF THE REBOUND! GREAT MOVE BY SETH OSIRIS! HE GOES FOR THE COVER….
Rich Russillo: Not there yet! It looks like there’s some fight left in Kieran Haviq. Seth Osiris is in full control now though. He picks Kieran Haviq back up… NO! Wait a minute! Kieran just went for an eye rake! The referee is shouting at him, this is not right! But the damage has been done, Seth Osiris is stunned and it looks like Kieran can finally get some offense going for him… Kieran goes for a Superkick… SETH OSIRIS GRABBED HIS LEG! NOT TONIGHT, FRIEND! SETH SPINS KIERAN AROUND, HE LETS GO OF HIS LEG AND CONNECTS WITH A BRUTAL YAKUZA KICK OF HIS OWN! RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, LIGHTS OUT FOR KIERAN HAVIQ.
James Peters: Seth is not even done yet… he does go for the cover, yet he is waiting in the corner for his opponent to get up. Kieran Haviq stumbles back to his feet… Seth charges in…. INVERTED TORNADO DDT! KIERAN MIGHT NEED AN ACTUAL THERAPIST AFTER ALL THESE SHOTS TO THE HEAD! SETH IS JUST RELENTLESS HERE TONIGHT! DEAR GOD!
Rich Russillo: Kieran Haviq seems completely out of it… I think it’s time for Seth to bring this one home for good! He is now stalking Kieran, waiting for him to get back up to his feet…
Persephone: Don’t give Seth too many ideas. We already have a “Doctor” on Voltage, we don’t need a “Therapist” who uses wrestling to find new patients…
James Peters: That may or may not be true! But that’s not the point here! The point is that Seth is completely in control and he is about to put this match to rest once and for all! As Kieran Haviq gets back to his feet, we see Seth going for his Sitout Reverse Burning Hammer… He picks him up! Wait! Kieran Haviq is fighting back! He wants none of that! Yes! Kieran has somehow found a way to escape this dangerous predicament and he is now free.
Rich Russillo: This is Kieran’s moment, it’s now or never! He has to turn things around! Kieran grabs Seth’s wrist… he flips him around… He is going for his Ripcord Spear… NO! SETH STOPPED HIM RIGHT IN HIS TRACKS WITH A BRUTAL LARIAT! HE USED THE MOMENTUM OF THE RIPCORD TO HIS ADVANTAGE! WHAT AN INSANE MOMENT!
James Peters: Now it’s time to end this match for good! Seth Osiris isn’t wasting anytime! He picks Kieran up… this time it connects! SITOUT REVERSE BURNING HAMMER! HE CALLS THIS THE DEAD AT DAWN… THERE IS NO WAY KIERAN IS KICKING OUT OF THIS MOVE…
(DING DING DING)
(“Bow Down” by I Prevail plays up as the referee raises Seth’s arm in celebration)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, here is your winner! Seth Osiris!
Rich Russillo: Convincing win by Seth Osiris! He has done the unthinkable here tonight and showed the world how Mental Therapists might have an advantage inside the Wrestling circle! So congratulations mister Osiris!
James Peters: Wait a minute… it’s not just about his second job, Rich. Seth Osiris has shown an impressive display of raw power and strength too. He was in full control of the entire match and provided us with a wide variety of moves! Kieran Haviq definitely needs to regroup after this match!
Persephone: Kieran might need a Therapist after what happened tonight, but something tells me he is not going to dial up Seth’s number.
Rich Russillo: Either way, I hope we get to see more from these two gentlemen in the next weeks! They are surely showing some serious potential for their EAW career! I cannot wait to see what they are going to do next!
(The camera takes another shot of Seth Osiris celebrating his win, and then fades to the backstage area.)
(We fade into the backstage area where Sofia Clarke is standing by.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, last week on Voltage, Prince Wealthy, Maxwell, faced the man you just watched win his first match here on Voltage, Seth Osiris. All week long, the EAW Universe has been buzzing about the controversy surrounding Maxwell’s win, and after watching replay after replay, it’s clear that Seth Osiris literally beat himself.
???: Hey! Watch it, Sofia.
(The camera widens to show Maxwell standing with Sofia. Both of them are standing close to a monitor that is now replaying Maxwell’s controversial win from last week. Maxwell smirks, clearly enjoying the sight of himself on camera, and he shakes his head.)
Maxwell: Damn. I look fly.
Sofia Clarke: I’m not sure how you can even view the match as anything other than Seth making a rookie mistake. But if you will, explain to us what went down in your own words, Maxwell?
(Maxwell finally pries his eyes away from the monitor and turns to Sofia. With a rather put out sounding sigh, he arrogantly shrugs his shoulders.)
Maxwell: What went down was a second straight victory for Prince Wealthy, and I look to keep on cruising here on Voltage. A win is a win no matter how ya slice it, and it’s not my fault Seth Osiris clearly wasn’t ready for his Voltage debut. He can downplay what went down all he wants, and search for excuses, but he’s still gunna have a loss next to his name when you look back at the May 10th episode of Voltage.
Sofia Clarke: So it doesn’t bother you that some people believe you didn’t deserve that victory?
Maxwell: Hell no! I don’t care about the opinions of other people! What have they done for me? Look. Imma just keep it real. I didn’t get to where I am today by always being honest and forthcoming. I’m a wealthy man with unlimited resources and do you think I accumulated all of that by ALWAYS playing by the rules?? I may or may not have cut some corners. I may or may not have gotten lucky a few times. The point I’m making is that I’m putting the hard work in, and because of that, I know the universe is going to compensate me tenfold. Last week was just an example of that, and I’m not about to feel bad about the nature of my victory.
Sofia Clarke: Fair enough. As you know, Pain for Pride season is underway and that brings forth a ton of opportunity for each and every EAW Elitist. Is there anything you have set your sights on, Maxwell?
(An arrogant grin crosses Maxwell’s face.)
Maxwell: I think a lot of people will be surprised by what I’ve got my eyes on come Pain for Pride season. A lot of people talk about the 24/7 Battle Royal being the jobber match, or whatever other derogatory verbiage you want to use, but when I think of that match, I see a massive opportunity. The 24/7 Contract is one of the biggest prizes in this sport. It gives you the right to compete for ANY championship at ANY time within a calendar year. The last two winners of the contract, Jack Ripley and Consuela Rose Ava, have both gone on to cash it in on singles championships. They both picked the right moment and got their hands on what they wanted, and you know what? I plan on continuing that tradition. I’ve already spoken to Captain Charisma and my road to Pain for Pride is taking me to the 24/7 Battle Royal. I’m confident that my experience in Grand Rampage is going to help me come Pain for Pride, and I will definitely be leaving Philadelphia with that piece of paper in my hands.
???: You might have a clear path to Pain for Pride, whereas I don’t, but what about next week?
(Sofia’s eyes immediately light up as The Woogieman walks into the picture. The charismatic Woogie lowers his sunglasses and smirks at Sofia, who blushes. Maxwell rolls his eyes, clearly not impressed with Woogie’s presence.)
Maxwell: What do you mean, ‘what about next week?’
(Woogie looks at Maxwell, and raises an eyebrow.)
The Woogieman: Well I am taking on SEBAS a little later on, but I am always looking for my next challenge. You like to talk a big game, and you brag a lot, so why not have a match with me next week? The Woogieman loves to fight and if you’re as good as you want to believe, you should have no hesitation when it comes to stepping up to the plate.
(Maxwell laughs, looking down his nose at the living legend.)
Maxwell: I wouldn’t know that from the quality of your matches. What in the world makes you think you want a match with me?
The Woogieman: I constantly want to challenge myself by going against every Voltage talent, knowing that eventually victory is going to come my way. It hasn’t been easy since I lost my BBB belt, but I know I gotta keep going and stay on that grind. I know I will bounce back. It may just happen this week against the talented SEBAS, or it may just happen next week against you, Maxwell.
Maxwell: It will absolutely never happen against me, so you can get that thought right out of your head. You can test yourself against SEBAS, and that may or may not work out for you, but I promise you if you step inside the ring with me, the future Mr. 24/7, you won’t make it to Pain for Pride. I doubt someone like you has a place on the card anyway, unless management decides to throw you a bone and make a match for your former cardboard belt, but if not, you will have to just sit on the sidelines and watch as the real wrestlers compete for the big time prizes.
The Woogieman: I guess we’ll see next week when you man up and step inside the ring with The Woogieman.
(Maxwell rolls his eyes, but after a moment, when he sees that The Woogieman isn’t going to back down, he shrugs.)
Maxwell: Fine, but it’s your funeral. I don’t mind getting blood on my hands.
The Woogieman: We’ll see, jabroni.
(Woogie flashes Sofia another million dollar smile, making her weak, before he takes his leave. Maxwell gives Sofia an annoyed look, mostly due to her reaction to Woogie, and then he heads out of the scene as well.)
(Voltage fades into a public service announcement.)
(A PSA featuring Doctor Bethany Blue telling the viewers about important safety procedures to fight against Covid19 airs. #MaskUp!)
(Voltage fades back in and the commentators are heard speaking in the background.)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to Elite Answers Wrestling’s hottest and most exciting weekly episodic television show, Sunday Night Voltage! Coming up next, we have a Dynasty Showcase Match! Some of Dynasty’s finest will duke it out in a battle for dominance! Coming up next, Beau “The Bull” Cassidy faces off with Lisa Wren and “The Nortic Juggernaut” SKA in a triple threat match for the ages! This one is gonna be good, folks!
James Peters: You’re telling me. Some of the red brand’s finest wage war on Voltage turf, all three in desperate need of a revitalizing victory.
Persephone: Good God, you two dying pelicans have been squawking all night long, let’s proceed with the match as planned.
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL AND IT IS A TRIPPLEEEEEE THHRRRRREEEEEAAAAAAATTTTTT MAATTTTCCCCHHHH!!!!
(‘Don’t Sweat The Technique’ by Eric B and Rakim begins to echo throughout the empty arena, as Lisa Wren makes her way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST!!!! WRESTLING OUT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANNNAAAADDDAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 150 POUUUNDDDDSSSSSSS!!! LIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!
James Peters: Lisa Wren is quite a versatile athlete and competitor alike. Tonight is the opportunity she’s been searching for, the chance to rejuvenate herself and get back on track on her path to glory!
Rich Russillo: Agreed, James. A triple threat match of this caliber is just what Lisa Wren needs. What all three of these competitors could use, in fact. A grand opportunity to separate yourself from the pack and show Elite Answers Wrestling Management that you are a star.
(Lisa Wren making her way into the ring, eagerly awaiting the arrival of her opponents, she’s come fight ready! ‘Take It Outside’ by Brantley Gilbert begins to play as Beau Cassidy makes his way onto the stage. Forming a bull and its horns on his hand, symbolising his Texan background.)
Bella Braxton: AND HEERRRRR OPPOOONNEEENNTTTT!!! FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF SWEETWATER, TEXAAAAASSSSSSSS!!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 235 POOOUUUUNNDDSSSSS!!!! BEAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUU “THEEEEEEE BULLLLLLLLL” CASSSIDDDDDYYYY!!!!!
Rich Russillo: “The Bull” looks as electric as ever! Beau Cassidy’s punishing and brutal moveset is extremely dangerous and may very well leave Voltage with a huge win tonight! Heading back to the red brand with some massive momentum on his side!
James Peters: What an opportunity this is for the freshly signed, Beau Cassidy! As you said, Rich. The opportunity to leave Voltage with a win under your belt and head back to Dynasty a victor, is one that shouldn’t easily be passed up. These three have been given a grand opportunity and whoever makes the most of it will certainly have proven something to Elite Answers Wrestling Management.
(Beau Cassidy nears the ring, as ‘Take It Outside’ by Brantley Gilbert begins to slowly fade away. ‘Paranoid” by I Prevail reverberates throughout the arena as The “Cold Blooded” SKA makes his way onto the stage and down the entrance ramp.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPPPPOOONNNEEETTT!!! WEIGHING IN AT 256 POOUUUNNDDDSSSS!!! WRESTLING OUT OF VANTAA, FIIINNNLAAAAANNNDDDD!!!!! “THEEEEE NOORRDDDIIICCCC JUGGGERRRNNAAAUUUTTTTTT” SSSSSSSSSKKKKKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Persephone: This guy looks like a disgusting wife beater! I low key hope he disfigures Lisa Wren’s fat, ugly face!
James Peters: SKA has been gone for awhile, but he showed a lot of promise during his first tenure with the company. I’m curious to see how his in-ring return goes tonight!
(SKA smirks at his opponents and circles the ring before finally entering and preparing himself for the bout. The referee calls for the bell, indicating the official beginning of the match!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The match is underway! SKA immediately targets Beau Cassidy, storming “The Bull” with a fury of strikes! SKA aiming to implement his game plan from the get go, not letting this match leave his control! Lisa Wren attempting a suplex! “The Nordic Juggernaut” overpowers Lisa Wren and drives heer down with an inverted suplex slam! Slamming Lisa Wren right on her face, what a move from SKA! Now Beau lifts SKA into the air, looking for a scoop slam perhaps?!? LIFTING SKA OVER HIS HEAD!!! BUT HE ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR, BEAU LOOKING FOR A LARIAT NOW! SKA AVOIDS IT AND LIFTS BEAU INTO THE AIR, DROPPING BEAU SHIN FIRST OINTO HIS KNEE, A SHIPBREAKER FROM SKA!! NOW HE’S ATTEMPTING TO FOLLOW UP WITH A SAITO-SUPLEX, CAN HE DUMP THE 240 POUNDER?!?!? SKA FOLDS BEAU LIKE AN ACCORDION WITH THAT SUPLEX!! SKA DOMINATING THE MATCH THUS FAR!!
Rich Russillo: SKA now basking in his glory, though he needs to capitalize. His return to Elite Answers Wrestling has been fueled by a drive to be the best, instead of seeking the experience. Though he must be careful to not get caught up in the moment, because in a second one of these competitors could end his night. Lisa Wren back into the ring, SLINGBLADE!! A SLINGBLADE FROM LISA WREN, A GREAT MOVE, DISRUPTING SKA’S MOMENTUM!!! NOW LISA HEADING UP TO THE SECOND ROPE, WHAT COULD SHE BE THINKING?!? LAUCNHING HERSELF OFF THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE WITH A DOUBLE AXE HANDLE TO THE SKULL OF SKA!!! DROPPING THE “JUGGERNAUT” TO THE CANVAS!! NOW LISA WREN WASTING NO TIME AT ALL, STOMPING ON THE LIMBS OF SKA!! FIRST THE LEGS, NOW THE ARMS, NOW THE CHEST! NOW A BIG STOMP ON THE HEAD OF SKA!!! STOMPING THE SKULL OF THE “COLD BLOODED” INTO THE CANVAS!
Persephone: Look at this, Beau Cassidy back in the ring, he’s fixed on Lisa Wren! BEAU CASSIDY WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF LISA WREN!!! “THE BULL” CERTAINLY DELIVERING A BULL SIZED BOOT RIGHT TO THE CHIN OF LISA, WOW!! NOW LIFTING THE BODY OF LISA WREN FROM THE CANVAS, FEELING THE MOMENTUM ON HIS SIDE!! LIFTING WREN HIGH IN THE SKIES, HOLDING HER THERE FOR SEVERAL SECONDS NOW, HOLY HELL!!! THE STRENGTH FROM BEAU CASSIDY IS TREMENDOUS, USING A STALING VERTICAL SUPLEX ON LISA WREN, WHO’S BLOOD IS RUSHING TO HER HEAD!! NOW BEAU DRIVES HER BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH FORCE!!! WHAT A MOVE FROM THE TEXAN!! BEAU CASSIDY SMILES AT THE CAMERA, ENJOYING HIS HANDIWORK! FORMING A BULL’S HORNS OUT OF HIS FINGERS, OH NO!!! OH GOD, NO!!! LISA WREN IN THE CORNER, UNABLE TO GET TO HER FEET, HE’S LOOKING FOR A FACEWASH!! DO IT, BEAU!! BEAU “THE BULL” CASSIDY CHARGING ACROSS THE RING AND THRUSTS HIS BUTTOCKS INTO THE FACE OF LISA WREN, WITH IMMENSE FORCE!!! NOW LIFTING LISA BACK TO HER FEET, SHE’S SURELY OUT OF IT NOW!! BEAU CASSIDY WITH WREN ON HIS SHOULDER, DELIVERS A POWESLAM TO LISA WREN, SENDING HER CRASHING TO THE MAT!!! WHAT A SLAM FROM BEAU CASSIDY, THIS COULD BE IT!! BEAU GOING IN FOR THE PIN!!!
Rich Russillo: SKA BACK IN THE RING, BREAKING UP THE ATTEMPTED PINFALL AT TWO!! This is exactly what we spoke about earlier, SKA finding himself in a situation in which he got far too comfortable and ended up paying for it, well he almost paid dearly there!

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNNERRRRRRR, SSSSSSSSKKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
James Peters: Wow, what a match. In the end, SKA pulled the victory out. A hard fought battle between three tough-as nails- elitists who all have bright futures! But tonight, the present belongs to SKA! Thank you for tuning in to that incredible matchup and for tuning in to Sunday Night Voltage! We’ll be back shortly with more action!
(Camera shot fades to black as Voltage cuts to a promotional ad for Showdown exclusive event, Odyssey!)
(A promotional ad for Odyssey airs, featuring the five promoted Elitists competing in a No Way Out Match for a chance to headline Pain for Pride! Jamie O’Hara, Ahren Fournier, Lance Blackfyre, Candice Blair, Myles, and a mystery opponent will duke it out in the dangerous match to see who will face either Chris Elite or Mr. DEDEDE at Pain for Pride! Odyssey comes to you live on free-per-view, next Saturday, May 23rd, 2020!)
(Voltage fades back in and James Peters is seen standing inside the ring. He is set to host the EAW World Championship contract signing between the champion, Andrea Valentine, and the challenger, Mr. DEDEDE. A table and two chairs have been set up, and the contract sits in the middle of it along with two pens.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, at Fighting Spirit, Andrea Valentine will step into the ring against arguably her toughest test to date as the EAW World Champion. She will be defending against Mr. DEDEDE, the reigning Answers World Champion. I’m sure Andrea and Mr. DEDEDE will both have a lot to say to one another tonight as we head towards Fighting Spirit, so let’s go ahead and get things started. Please welcome… the EAW World Champion, ANDREA VALENTINE!
(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to blast across the PA system and Andrea strolls onto the stage. She’s dressed in a pair of skinny jeans with rips in the knees, Louboutin heels, and a Voltage t-shirt that is knotted under the bust. She holds up the EAW Championship and makes her way to the ring. James has been given two spare microphones and he hands one over to Andrea, who lays the championship down on the table. As her music fades out, she scans the contract.)
James Peters: And the man who will look to dethrone Andrea at Fighting Spirit and potentially become a double champion depending on what goes down at Odyssey… Mr. DEDEDE!!!
(“Let It Go” by A$AP Ferg begins to play, which draws Andrea’s attention to the stage. She waits for Mr. DEDEDE to come out, but the Answers World Champion never appears.)
Rich Russillo: Well that’s strange, Seph. I wonder where Mr. DEDEDE is?
Persephone: I mean he is probably fucking his trophy slag somewhere in the back and can’t be fucked to come out. Not that I can really blame him. Even though we are social distancing away from the ring, I can’t help but feel like I’m going to catch a STD off Andrea. Yuck.
Rich Russillo: How do you figure that?
Persephone: When I picture chlamydia, I totally picture Andrea Valentine.
(Mr. DEDEDE’s music fades out and Andrea turns to James.)
Andrea Valentine (Off Mic): Where is he?
James Peters (Off Mic): I’m not sure. I was told he would be here for the contract signing.
(Andrea rolls her eyes. She can’t help but wonder if Mr. DEDEDE is playing some type of game with her. She thinks for a moment, and raises up her microphone.)
Andrea Valentine: I think I speak for everyone when I say that none of us really want to put up with Mr. DEDEDE’s bullshit here tonight. I’m sure he is pissed off over what went down on Showdown, and how Chris Elite AND Harlow Reichert both ended up getting the better of him and his bride, but if he wants this championship match, then he really needs to get it together and come out here. I made it clear last week that I wasn’t afraid of DEDEDE and all the baggage that comes with him. I’ve battled a lot of so-called ‘bad asses’ inside that ring and have more than held my own. Fighting Spirit really isn’t about to be any different, because I’m determined to beat Mr. DEDEDE and defend my championship at Pain for Pride against Rex.
(“Monster” by Kanye West begins to play, and a smiling Kassidy Heart steps onto the stage. She is wearing a pair of Gawdzilla Pro© Arab Money joggers that had been made just for her, the top of her solid white ring gear, and the white version with traditional print accent Louis Vuitton Boombox sneakers.)
Rich Russillo: Well that’s not Mr. DEDEDE, but something tells me Kassidy Heart’s presence is going to be just as effective.
Persephone: Is it though? I just see another trashy blonde.
(Kassidy has gotten into the ring and taken the other microphone from James. She flashes Andrea a brilliant smile and tosses her straightened, blonde locks off her shoulders.)
Kassidy Heart: Look, I know you all were expecting Ryan to come out and sign the contract, but truthfully, he has better things to do right now. My husband is a busy man, and before you pop off at the mouth again about how he’s probably reeling from what went down on Showdown, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Ryan is also a brilliant man, and obviously he expected Chris Elite to do something stupid while he was in the middle of pummeling that stupid fat whore Harlow. That match is actually one I hope you watched, Andrea, because if Ryan can do what he did to a wildebeest like Harlow, imagine what he can do to you. You don’t have 300 pounds to throw around like Harlow does, nor are you a giant like she is, and Ryan is literally going to destroy you the second the bell rings at Fighting Spirit.
Andrea Valentine: If I were you, I would stop worrying about what’s going to go down in my match against DEDEDE and worry about the match you’re stepping into at Fighting Spirit. You have a lot on the line against Malcolm and Chris, and at this point, can you even be sure you’re on the same page as your own partner? I saw the look you gave Sienna Jade after she accidentally knocked you from the apron during Gateway to Glory. You wanted to maim her, despite the fact she didn’t want anything to do with you. You really ought to worry about that instead of putting yourself in the middle of this situation.
Kassidy Heart: Here’s the thing Andrea. I have two equally important roles. I’m Kassidy Heart, the professional wrestler and National Elite Champion who will continue to reign as such long after Pain for Pride, regardless of my opponent. And my other role is that of Ryan Adams’ wife. You can rest assured that I will be ready to go come Fighting Spirit and fight proudly alongside my best friend Sienna Jade in order to defeat the Dicky Boyz and get us both a more favorable situation at Pain for Pride. But right now, it’s not about me. It’s about my husband and his quest to continue being The People’s Champion. He’s not out here right now because he’s busy, and would much rather do something good with his time, rather than waste it on a petty back and forth with you. You are not on his level. He will prove that come Fighting Spirit when he takes the EAW World Championship and becomes a double champion.
Andrea Valentine: And how’s that going to happen if he is quote “busy” right now and can’t come sign the contract?
(A sly smile spreads across Kassidy’s face and she reaches into the pocket of her joggers and pulls out a stamp.)
Kassidy Heart: Don’t worry. He sent me out here with the same stamp he uses to stamp our paychecks. Our lawyers already said that will suffice on the contract, and the main event of Fighting Spirit will be officially signed.
(Kassidy leans down and stamps Mr. DEDEDE’s name on the line that says ‘Challenger’, and she motions towards Andrea.)
Kassidy Heart: Go ahead and sign your death certificate, paper champ.
(Andrea deadass looks Kassidy in her eyes.)
Andrea Valentine: At least I’m going to be in a Pain for Pride main event after I defeat DEDEDE.
(The look that crosses Kassidy’s face is one of pure hatred, because obviously Andrea said something that got under The Mauler’s skin. Andrea gives Kassidy a look of triumph as she retrieves one of the ink pens from the table and makes the match at Fighting Spirit official.)
James Peters: With both signatures on the contract, the main event of Fighting Spirit is set! Andrea Valentine with defend the EAW World Championship against Mr. DEDEDE!
Andrea Valentine: Hopefully DEDEDE isn’t too busy to wrestle the match next.
Kassidy Heart: You can rest assured that he will be there and I’m more than sure he will take a lot of pleasure in eliminating your stupid ass from the main event picture. You never had any business being in it in the first place. You can kiss that Pain for Pride main event you just tried to throw in my face buh-bye!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA JUST RESPONDED BY SLAPPING KASSIDY RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!
Persephone: THAT DUMB BITCH IS SHOOK!
Kassidy Heart: Big mistake.
Rich Russillo: MR. DEDEDE JUST HOPPED OVER THE BARRICADES AND SLAMS THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE BACK OF ANDREA’S HEAD! THE EAW CHAMPION IS DOWN AND DEDEDE INSTRUCTS KASSIDY TO PICK UP ANDREA! KASSIDY PICKS HER UP IN A FLAPJACK POSITION AND DEDEDE GRABS ANDREA INTO A CUTTER! THEY JUST PUT ANDREA VALENTINE THROUGH THE TABLE WITH THEIR OWN VERSION OF THE 3D!!!
Persephone: More importantly… did you see how fast James Peters ran from the ring?? I’m dying.
(Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy Heart stand over the fallen body of Andrea Valentine. Kassidy leans down and scoops up both the EAW Championship and the Answers World Championship, and she hands them both to her husband. Mr. DEDEDE grins from ear to ear as he holds them both up, giving everyone an idea of what it will look like should he come out of Odyssey and Fighting Spirit with wins. He places both belts on his shoulders, strokes Kassidy’s cheek where Andrea struck her, and then shares a kiss with his wife. “Let It Go” begins to play and a few seconds later, the two exit the ring.)
Rich Russillo: Wait a second! Mr. DEDEDE is leaving with both championships! He can’t just take Andrea’s belt like that!
Persephone: Are you going to be the one who stops him because clearly the moron in the ring can’t. She got herself put through a table.
(Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy make their way to the top of the stage, and that is where Mr. DEDEDE once again poses with both world titles. Kassidy flashes him an adoring look and that’s when Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for CarShield featuring The Woogieman. Don’t get stuck with expensive car repairs.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella, who is ready to announce the participants of the next match!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
(‘La Guayaba’ by Riccie Oriach blares over the speakers as SEBAS makes his way out on to the ramp and raises his hands, as he makes his way down the ramp.)
Rich Russillo: Last week the both of these guys were a part of that battle royal known as a clusterfuck to most. SEBAS managed his way through half the battle and was tossed like a sack of trash by Colby Sol. He just didn’t have the chance once Colby started in with the Dirty Style Boxing he manages to do well with.
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! Weighing in at 205 pounds fighting all the way from the Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic…SSSSSEEEEBBBBBBBBBBASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!
(SEBAS slides in to the ring to one knee focusing, then leaps up and charges to the ring corner climbing to the second rope as he poses for the camera and the empty arena, before finishing it with a backflip off the second rope. ‘If Ya Smell’ By Adam Massacre drowns out ‘La Guayaba’ as the man himself walks out on the stage as he stops to admire the view. Then looks to the ceiling as he make his way down the ramp.)
James Peters: SEBAS was on good roll, but there is just something he needs to learn and thats not to rely on just that one move. It could break you or make you and so far each attempt hasn’t been successful. I can’t wait to see what him and Woogieman can put together here tonight.
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPPPPENNNENNNNT!!! Representing his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida weighing in at 260 pounnnds….TTTHHHHHEEEEE WWWWOOOOOOOOGGGIIIEEEEEEMMMMMMAAAAAAAANNNNN!!!!!
James Peters: Woogieman has been doing what Woogieman does every week, he’s definitely the man that will show up and you know the rest. Last week he was eliminated first in that battle royal, really looking to see him redeem himself in this match vs SEBAS.
(Woogieman climbs the apron as he makes his way across the ring as he gives the Woogie grin to SEBAS as he climbs the corner buckle and raises his arm and looks to the ceiling with his eyes closed. If You Smell fades out as Woogie drops back to the map, locking eyes with SEBAS.)
Persephone: Both of these guys are a waste of space and time.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: AND THIS MATCH IS UNDERWAY….Both Woogieman and SEBAS circling the ring, both men come in for an elbow/collar lock up. Both men struggling to get the upperhand. Woogieman with the larger stature is able to push SEBAS back in to the corner. SEBAS realizing Woogie is a much stronger man releases the hold…Woogieman let’s go and raises his hands to show he let go…DAM WOOGIE TURNED AND JUST SLAPPED THE SHIT OUT OF SEBAS CHEST AS SEBAS GRABS IT WITH AGONY. WHAT DISRESPECT. WOOGIEMAN PULLS HIM BACK IN TO THE CORNER AND DELIVERS ANOTHER HARD SLAP ACROSS THE CHEST OF SEBAS AS HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING HOLDING HIS CHEST. Woogieman quickly exits the ring and goes after SEBAS…FIRST WITH AN AX HANDLE TO THE BACK AND QUICKLY ROLLS SEBAS BACK IN TO THE RING.
Rich Russillo: Let me tell you man, Since Woogie dropped the Bhampionship back late last year to Zak Simmons, Woogie has been on a mission to win more titles. Watch out Now Woogieman rolls in to the ring, BUT SEBAS IS QUICK TO HIS FEET AND MEETS WOOGIEMAN in the center of the ring. Woogieman looks intensely into SEBAS eyes and at the camera as he raises one eye brow. SEBAS GOES FOR A PUNCH BUT NO WOOGIE WITH BLOCK, AS HE DIGS A PUNCH OF HIS OWN BUT WOOGIE WITH ANOTHER BLOCK…LANDS ANOTHER PUNCH PUTTING SEBAS UP AGAINST THE ROPES. WOOGIEMAN WHIPS SEBAS OFF OF THE ROPES, SEBAS SLIPS THROUGH THE LEGS OF WOOGIE MISSING THE CLOTHESLINE…SEBAS JUMPS UP HOOKING THE LEGS AROUND WOOGIES HEAD AND BRINGS HIM DOWN WITH A REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER, QUICKLY IN TO THE COVER.
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT BY WOOGIEMAN…BOTH MEN TO THEIR FEET BUT SEBAS QUICKLY IN FOR THE MOVE AND HITS A PICTURE PERFECT CODEBREAKER. SENDING WOOGIEMAN ROLLING OUT OF THE RING. Both men take a breather as the ref checks on both and begins a 10 count.
James Peters: SEBAS TO HIS FEET HE SEES WOOGIEMAN IS STILL WORKING HIS WAY UP. SEBAS NOTICES WOOGIEMAN AND TURNS AND RUNS THE ROPES AND GOES AIRBORNE OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A TOPE CON GIRO LANDING RIGHT ON WOOGIE AND SMASHES IN TO THE BARRICADE. SEBAS UP TO HIS FEET HELPING WOOGIE TO HIS. SEBAS ROLLS WOOGIE INTO THE RING RIGHT AFTER GIVING WOOGIE A CHOP TO THE CHEST. SEBAS CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE. Looks to be setting up for a shooting star press…SEBAS TAKES THE JUMP BUT IS MET WITH WOOGIE’S KNEES.
Persephone: Just two weeks ago SEBAS lost the match against Maxwell trying that same high flying shit. When is he going to learn it just isn’t working for him. Maybe he needs a quick lessening from my Sexy Rexy. Woogie gets to his feet with a big shit eaten grin. Now SEBAS makes it to his feet, SEBAS CHARGES IN FOR A SPEAR BUT NO WOOGIE FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH A FLOWING DDT…WOOGIE WITH THE KIP UP. WOOGIE RUNS THE ROPES AND DROPS AN ELBOW AND CONNECTS RIGHT ACROSS THE CHEST OF SEBAS. Woogie goes in for the cover.
OOONNNEEEE!!! TTTTWWWOOOOOOOO!! TTHHH….
James Peters: SEBAS with the shoulder up. Woogie rolls to his feet…grabbing at SEBASs feet but SEBAS starting to fight it…SEBAS GETS A LEG FREE AND GOES FOR AN UP KICK AND MISSES…WOOGIE IS ABLE TO HOOK THE ONE LEG AND TRIES TO STEP OVER IN A SINGLE BOSTON CRAB…SEBAS fighting with everything he has…WOOGIE NOW HAS SEBAS TURNED OVER AND IS TRYING TO SIT BACK ON IT BUT SEBAS IS TRYING TO REACH FOR THE ROPES…WOOGIE RELEASES THE HOLD AND GOES STRAIGHT TO A FEW STOMPS TO THE BACK OF SEBAS…SEBAS is really taking a beating in this match compared to the last few. WOOGIEMAN BRINGS SEBAS TO HIS FEET.
Rich Russillo: OHHH. SEBAS with the desperate attempt and NAILS WOOGIEMAN IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A ENZIGURI, SEBAS DROPS TO THE GROUND…AND THERE GOES WOOGIE FALLING LIKE A TREE NICE AND SLOW. SEBAS dragging himself over to Woogieman, Woogieman is coming to as both men scramble to their feet. SEBAS WITH A RIGHT…WOOGIEMAN WITH AN EXCHANGE…WOOGIE GOES FOR ANOTHER BUT NO SEBAS WITH THE BLOCK AND A PUNCH AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER SENDING WOOGIE STUMBLING BACK TO THE CORNER. SEBAS BACKS UP AND RUNS FULL STEAM AHEAD IN A SPEAR ON WOOGIEMAN…wait WHAT!! SEBAS A BACK HANDSPRING DIGS IN WITH HIS FEET AND SPEARS WOOGIE AGAIN THIS TIME PUSHING AND RAMMING WOOGIE IN TO THE CORNER LEAVING HIM BASICALLY SITTING ON THE SECOND ROPE…DAM SEBAS OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A CUTTER LEAVING WOOGIE OUT ON THE MAT TO DRY.
James Peters: All that was out of desperation you can see it from the Enziguri all the way to that last ram of effort to get a breather. Woogie is laid out on the mat right now, and SEBAS needs to capitalize if he wants to have this match turn in his favor.
Rich Russillo: Your right SEBAS definitely put what he could in to that combo but if he doesn’t make a pin right here, Woogieman will prevail and make a return. SEBAS is dragging himself up from the seated position using the ropes holding his chest still. SEBAS MAKES HIS MOVE TOWARD WOOGIE BUT WOOGIE PLAYING A LITTLE POSSUM AND MANAGES TO CATCH SEBAS OFF GUARD SENDING SEBAS TO THE MAT WITH A DROP TOE…WOOGIE STEPS OVER LOCKING THE LEG..LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING FOR A FOR A CROSS FACE…BUT NO SEBAS IS ABLE TO REACH OUT AND GRAB THE ROPES. WOOGIEMAN QUICKLY RELEASES THE HOLD AND GOES STRAIGHT FOR A STOMP TO SEBAS’ BACK.
James Peters: Woogieman knows this ring and the last thing you want to do is leave yourself open for such a rookie mistake, but a simple move like a drop toe hold…Woogieman drags SEBAS back to his feet..WHAT THE HELL…SEBAS IS BITING THE HAND OF THE WOOGIEMAN…NO WAY. SEBAS GOES STRAIGHT INTO BENDING THE FINGERS BACK ON WOOGIE AS HE DROPS TO ONE KNEE, AND SEBAS GRABBING THE FINGERS OF THE OTHER HAND WRENCHING THEM BACK IN TO ALMOST A SUBMISSION. SEBAS KEEPS PUSHING ON WOOGIE AS HE BENDS FURTHER BACK EVENTUALLY FORCING WOOGIEMAN’S SHOULDERS TO THE MAT.
Rich Russillo: OH! Woogieman pushing off his shoulders and putting all the weight on his head, bridging it out. You can see the amount of stretch it puts on the abdominal. SEBAS LET’S GO OFF THE RIGHT HAND AND SLAMS DOWN A FOREARM…AND THEN ANOTHER. WOOGIE DROPS TO HIS BACK WITH ALL OF SEBAS’ WEIGHT ON TOP, REF SLIDES DOWN TO CHECK HIS SHOULDERS BUT WOOGIE PUSHES THE BRIDGE BACK OUT…SEBAS QUICKLY CIRCLES AROUND KEEPING A HOLD OF THE RIGHT HAND STILL..THEN SLIPPING WOOGIE ARM IN A KIMURA LOCK…SEBAS ALMOST HAS THE KIMURA LOCKED IN… WOOGIE PUSHES HIMSELF UP INTO A HANDSTAND AND CORRECTS HIMSELF OUT OF THE LOCK AND HIS ABLE TO SLIP OUT AND BOTH MEN UP TO THEIR FEET.
James Peters: WOW!!! This match is getting intense, you can see it in the look in these two men’s faces. Both SEBAS and Woogieman feeling each other out circling the ring, before SEBAS comes in but Woogieman catches him in the gut with a boot. WOOGIEMAN THEN WHIPS SEBAS INTO THE ROPES, SEBAS OFF THE ROPES WOOGIEMAN WITH A CLOTHESLINE BUT SEBAS DUCKS UNDER AND RUNS THE ROPES WOOGIE DUCKS DOWN FOR A LEAPFROG ON THE WAY OVER SEBAS CATCHES THE HIPS OF WOOGIE SLAMMING HIM DOWN…SEBAS JUST HIT THAT SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB PERFECTLY. SEBAS HAS THE ARMS PINNED WITH HIS LEGS, REF SLIDES IN FOR THE COUNT.
OOONNNNEEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWOOOOOOO!!!! THHHHHHRRREE….
Rich Russillo: WOOGIEMAN MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE PINNING COMBINATION, BUT SEBAS IS QUICK TO HIS FEET AND LANDS A QUICK SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO THE CHEST OF WOOGIE SENDING WOOGIE ROLLING IN TO THE CORNER. SEBAS MOVES IN BRINGING WOOGIEMAN TO HIS FEET..WOOGIE QUICKLY REVERSES SEBAS IN TO THE CORNER…BAMMM..WOOGIE THROWS A RIGHT, AND THEN ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER…BRINGS IT BACK FOR A FIFTH TIME BUT BEFORE HE SWING HE SPITS UP AT HIS HAND THEN BRING IN THE PUNCH ROCKING SEBAS. WOOGIEMAN QUICKLY WHIPS SEBAS ACROSS TO THE OTHER ROPES…WOOGIEMAN RUNS THE MAT AND MEETS A LAST SECOND HIGH BOOT. WOOGIEMAN GRABBING AT HIS CHIN AS HE COMES IN FOR ANOTHER AND GETS CAUGHT WITH ANOTHER HIGH BOOT SENDING WOOGIEMAN STUMBLING BACK. WOOGIEMAN RUNS IN FOR THE THIRD THIS TIME SEBAS IS WAITING WITH A SUPERKICK. SEBAS CONNECTS WITH THAT SUPERKICK. WOOGIEMAN GOES DOWN TO THE MAT. SEBAS QUICKLY FALLS IN FOR A LAZY PIN, NOT HOOKING A LEG.
OOOONNNNEEEEE!!!! TTTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!!! THHHHHRRREEEE…
James Peters: WOOGIEMAN GETS A SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME. SEBAS sits up with the most upsetting scream, that can be heard throughout the arena. If he would have hooked both those legs it would have been in the bag for him here tonight. SEBAS showing some real emotion over this match. SEBAS gets to his feet, bringing Woogie to his. SEBAS ATTEMPTS TO WHIP WOOGIEMAN IN TO THE ROPES…NOPE WOOGIEMAN WITH AN REVERSAL SEBAS OFF THE ROPES SEBAS GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT WOOGIE DUCKS UNDER BOTH MEN RUN THE ROPES..BOTH MEN COLLIDE IN THE RING BUT WHAT!!! SEBAS PULLS OUT THE RUNNING SPANISH FLY TAKING WOOGIEMAN FACE FIRST TO THE MAT.
Rich Russillo: SEBAS drags Woogieman to his feet, SEBAS with a strong forearm to the head of Woogie, then a hard chop across the chest echoing throughout the arena. WOOGIE EXCHANGING ONE OF HIS OWN SENDING SEBAS STAGGERING BACK. WOOGIEMAN COMES RUNNING IN BUT SEBAS STEPS ASIDE WOOGIE OF THE ROPES BUT SEBAS FOLLOWS IN LEAPING IN WITH A KNEE STRIKE CATCHING WOOGIEMAN UNDER THE CHIN. WOOGIE CAUGHT AGAINST THE ROPES AS SEBAS USING THE ROPES TO PICK WOOGIEMAN UP ON TO HIS SHOULDERS…IS HE GOING FOR THE…SEBAS TAKES A STEP FORWARD AND DROPS DOWN BRING WOOGIEMAN DOWN WITH THE BURNING HAMMER…SEBAS JUST HIT THE GREAT FILTER…SEBAS CRAWLS OVER THE TOP OF WOOGIEMAN HOOKING ONE LEG AND THE OTHER WITH HIS OWN LEGS. REF SLIDES IN FOR THE COUNT..
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOOOURRRR WINNERRRRRR, SSSSSSEEEEEEEEBBBBBBBBBBASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: SEBAS put up a hard fight tonight and it showed. I see a lot of potential if he puts all the right things in the right spots when needed. He’ll be that future star I mentioned a few weeks back.
Persephone: Whatever the case maybe, they both plain up suck and should think of going back to their day job at Burger King. Didn’t Woogieman work as a car salesman before he thought he had what it took to be an EAW Elitist.
James Peters: Either way Persephone, both men put on one hell of a show tonight and I wouldn’t take anything from the both of them. Like you said, if SEBAS manages to make it through the rest of the season, there is definitely a spot on the roster moving into season 14. He may have not gotten the job done with his signature moonsault, but that but I am glad he decided not to use it to put away Woogieman here tonight.
(SEBAS rolls out of the ring, glad to be back on the winning side of things, and Woogie is left in the ring to regroup once more.)
(Voltage fades elsewhere.)
(Voltage reopens to the backstage area where Molly Waters is standing by.)
Molly Waters: Last night at Gateway to Glory, two of Dynasty’s fastest rising stars went to battle against the former New Breed Champion in order to determine who would face Jalyn Garcia at Fighting Spirit: Omaha for the New Breed Championship. Justin Windgate, Wilhelm, and Andre Walker put on an instant classic, where at any given moment, it seemed like any of the three could pull out a win. Ultimately, it was Andre Walker who took advantage of Wilhelm missing a coast-to-coast dropkick to score the victory and get himself in a position to compete for his first ever EAW championship. Joining me right now is the man who will be defending his title against Andre in Omaha… Jalyn Garcia.
(Jalyn steps into the scene, dressed in street clothes, with his New Breed Championship on his shoulder.)
Molly Waters: Thanks for joining me, Jalyn! Did you catch the match last night at Gateway to Glory?
Jalyn Garcia: Truthfully? No. I was too busy trying to keep a drunk Desmond Helms from blowing up Candice Blair’s phone, because Jamie actually broke down and slipped him the number of an Ava sister. I got second-hand embarrassment from watching that shitshow play out. It was a similar feeling to the one I had when Justin Windgate put his rematch on the line against Walker and Wilhelm. I’ll never understand what prompts people to make the decisions they do, but I was shocked to find out Windgate wasn’t able to get the job done. For someone who speaks so highly of himself, I guess I just assumed we’d be getting a Grand Rampage rematch.
Molly Waters: That definitely doesn’t seem to be in the cards anytime soon as it appears Justin has a chance to qualify for the Cash in the Vault ladder match on Dynasty next week.
Jalyn Garcia: That’s not really a big deal if you ask me. A rematch between the two of us was only going to result in me defeating him again. Perhaps Justin will fare better against Ronan Malosi. That’s more of the level he’s at.
Molly Waters: So how do you feel about facing Andre Walker?
(Jalyn brushes his hair out of his eyes and shrugs.)
Jalyn Garcia: I feel the same way about Walker, as I feel about Windgate, Wilhelm, or any other ‘new breed’ athletes this company wants to feed to me. None of them will ever compare to me, and the legacy I’m here to uphold. I’ve found my footing now, and I’m charging forward, full steam ahead, and not looking back. Andre Walker is another generic trash talker with no substance or thought behind his words. He opens his mouth to speak and just regurgitates the same insults as everyone else. I’m sure he will spend the week of Fighting Spirit referring to me as a ‘vanilla midget’, or telling me that I will never live up to Jamie’s legacy. I don’t have high hopes for this match, and I can only hope that it’s over as quickly as possible.
(Andre Walker strolls up, much to the surprise of Molly and Jalyn. He takes a look at the New Breed Championship, and a huge smirk crosses his face.)
Andre Walker: You want a quick match? I’ll give ya that Fighting Spirit. Make no mistake about it, my guy. I’m not interested in dragging things out for the long haul. The quicker the victory, the quicker I can stamp my ticket to Pain for Pride. Not bad for someone who’s been here such a short time, right? I’ll be walking into the biggest show of the year as a defending champion.
Jalyn Garcia: The odds of you walking out of Fighting Spirit with my championship are slim to non-existent. You can only hope that I suffer some kind of injury or go on a bender the night before, even though I would probably still be more competent than you. I’m not trying to make this into a pissing contest, but you literally have no experience, and I can’t wrap my head around why you think this is going to be an easy victory for you.
Andre Walker: Because I’m confident in myself, that’s why. Not all of us were raised with a silver spoon in our mouths and hand-picked by a legend to succeed them. Some of us had to come up the hard way and learn to fight for what we have, and if I had gotten the start in EAW that you did, I damn sure wouldn’t have pissed it away due to some made-up anxiety and depression.
(Jalyn rolls his eyes to the back of his skull.)
Jalyn Garcia: I don’t run from my past, and have done everything I can to make sure my second time around here works out a lot better.
(He pats the New Breed Championship on his shoulder.)
Jalyn Garcia: It seems to be going pretty good for me, so far.
Andre Walker: Key phrase there, ‘so far.’ I’m coming to Fighting Spirit with my eyes firmly on that championship belt you’re carrying around right now. I plan on seizing the moment and making the most of this opportunity, and I refuse to leave Omaha empty-handed.
Jalyn Garcia: You’re not the first person to make such a bold declaration, and I’m sure you won’t be the last. However, I’m not most competitors who would crack under the pressure of a championship defense with a trip to Pain for Pride on the line. I’m Jalyn Garcia, and you will find out pretty quickly that the name ‘Andre Walker’ will never be able to compare to what my name will mean.
(Jalyn brushes past Andre, and heads out of the scene. Andre watches him go, and a smirk spreads across his face. He looks at Molly.)
Andre Walker: That dude’s about to get a hell of a reality check. Bet.
(Andre rubs his hands together, clearly excited over the opportunity he has coming up at Fighting Spirit. Molly smiles into the camera and Voltage fades into a promotional ad for Fighting Spirit: Omaha.)
(A promotion ad for Fighting Spirit: Omaha airs highlighting the EAW World Championship match between Andrea Valentine and Mr. DEDEDE. Catch those two incredible Elitists in action, plus more, when Fighting Spiriting: Omaha comes to you live on free-per-view, May 30th, 2020!)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the ringside area. The commentators are heard talking in the background.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to Sunday Night Voltage! Coming up next, a true thriller of a bout! “The Lone Sol’ collides with “The Treacherous One” Coming up next, Colby Sol squares off with Cepheus St. Claire in what promises to be an epic bout!
Rich Russillo: Indeed, a bout for the ages. Blood will be spilt tonight, though not just any blood, bad blood. Extremely bad blood, in fact. The returning, Cepheus St. Claire has quite the history with Colby Sol’s newfound partner in crime, Jesse Barlow. A history which only embroiled further into the souls of both men last week. During the battle royale on the previous episode of Voltage, Colby Sol was damn near done. On the edge of the cliff, his heels over the edge. On the verge of elimination, Jesse Barlow returned to the ring after already being eliminated and saved Colby Sol. Taking out Cepheus St. Claire, who in my humble opinion, had the match won. Sol was done for, until Barlow ruined St. Claire’s plans. In a state of rage, St. Claire called for action, hence this beautiful matchup we’ve been presented with tonight!
Rich Russillo: You just know Cepheus is fighting with a vengeance, like a bat out of hell. Though Colby Sol’s increasingly strengthening bond with Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin has proven to bring him the success he’s been looking for. Voltage may be Sol’s for the taking!
Persephone: “vOltaGe mAy bE SoL’s fOr tHE taKiNg!” Shut the hell up, turd. Do you honestly not hear yourselves when you two imbeciles speak? It’s similar to the sound of two apes viciously fucking in a bed of nails. Yes, it’s that bad. Now, let’s quit with the chatty-cathy bullshit and proceed with this bout, before you two’s anticipation ruins in entirely.
James Peters: That’s….Harsh. But I do agree, let’s proceed with the match!!
Persephone: Mutters under her breath “Oh, God help me.”
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLES MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!
(‘Mob Ties’ by Drake begins to reverberate throughout the ghostly Voltage arena, as Cepheus St. Claire presents himself on stage, accompanied by Lonnie Delmonty)
Rich Russillo: No audience in attendance, yet St. Claire bringing enough swagger for two! You have to love it!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST!! WRESTLING OUT OF SANTA CLARA, CALIIIFFFOOOORRRNIIAAAAAAA!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 230 POOOOUUUNNDDSSS!!!! “THHHHEEEE TREEEEEACCCCCHHEEERRROOOUUUSSSS ONNNEEEEEE!!!!!” CEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPHHHHHEEEEUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSS SSSTTTTTT. CLLLAAAAIIIIRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
James Peters: Goddess like energy in the announcement of Bella Braxton, as per usual. Even with no audience in attendance here, the show must go on! Cepheus St. Claire however, does not appear the least bit concerned as to whether there are fans or not. He’s here for one thing and one thing only, to rewire the jaw of Colby Sol and make both him and Jesse Barlow pay for their malfeasance.
Rich Russillo: Oh, man. I’m excited to see what the showman has in store for us! Perhaps a superkick party, much like last week! As Tay-K once said “Yo boy’s teeth, well let’s get to subtracting”! This is gonna be a bout for the ages.
James Peters: SInce when do you listen to…Nevermind. I couldn’t agree more, Rich. Cepheus, making his return to the Sunday Night brand and he is looking for the biggest fish in the sea. After that battle royale victory last week, Colby Sol has certainly inserted his name into that conversation. To derail the “Sol Train’s” momentum this week would not only be an incredibly beneficial and opportunistic chance for St. Claire, but he also has the ability to strike a stinging blow to two men he’s not fond of.
Persephone: That’s correct and if you know anything about Cepheus, you’ll know he’s not afraid of bending any rules in his favor. He will do whatever it takes to win and burn as much searing pain into the soul and spirit possible.
(Cepheus St. Claire rolls into the ring after ‘Mob Ties’ by Drake begins to fade from the arena’s speakers. Meanwhile, Lonnie Delmonty is seen pacing back and forth at ringside. Eagerly eyeing the entrance stage, awaiting the arrival of his newfound rival and old enemy. ‘A History of Bad Men” by The Melvins’ begins to echo throughout the infinite space in the Voltage arena, as Colby Sol, Hannah Marin, and Jesse Barlow make their way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: AND IS OPPONENT!!! HAILING FROM “THE CITY OF CHAMPIIIOOONNNSSS” PITTSBURGH, PENNNNSSSYYLLLLAVVNNIIAAAAAA!!! ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY HANNAH MARIN AND “THE VIRTUOUS” JESSE BARLOW!!! “THE LOOOOONNEEEE SOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL” COOOOOOLLLLLLBBBBBBYYYYYYY SSSSOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Rich Russillo: I must say, Colby Sol was more than hesitant upon first entry into this partnership with Jesse Barlow. Though it has only brought him fortune and success thus far and Jesse Barlow has proven himself to be a true partner, who will sacrifice himself for the betterment of his team. The ever-so clever Hannah Marin, also in the ear of Colby Sol, he’s seemingly got all the tools needed to be a destructive force here on Voltage.
James Peters: It’s worth noting, Sol was “Eating Defeat” himself, until the formation of this faction. The combined forces of Sol, Barlow, and Marin is a trio of violent capability. Cepheus must be incredibly careful tonight. He may bend the rules himself, but any man or woman can fall victim to the numbers game. That’s Sol’s advantage upon his arrival here tonight.
Persephone: Sol’s dropped an essence of that go-happy, proud competitor he portrayed himself to be. Which is exactly what he needed. I’m glad he’s finally decided to sack up, we’re going to see whether that sack is really in between his legs, or somewhere in Hannah Marin’s purse tonight.
(Both men, Sol and St. Claire are now awaiting the ring bell, indicating the official beginning of this match.)
DING! DING! DING!
James Peters: HERE WE GO! CEPHEUS IMMEDIATELY OUT OF THE CORNER, STORMING COLBY SOL! AS I SAID, A BAT OUT OF HELL! A FURY OF KICKS TO THE ABDOMEN, BRUISING AND BATTERING THE MIDSECTION OF COLBY!!
Rich Russillo: This is certainly not the start Colby Sol was looking for! Sol with a chop to the chest of Cepheus! What a stinger! Now Colby with another chop! Fighting his way out of the corner, looking for another huge chop! Sol with a thor-No! St. Claire escapes it and DRIVES COLBY DOWN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! OH, WOW! HE ROLLED THROUGH, STILL WITH COLBY IN HIS GRASP!! LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GERMAN!! HE DRIVES HIM DOWN ONCE AGAIN, A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX FROM CEPHEUS! THIS TIME HE BRIDGES IT, LOOKING FOR A QUICK WIN!
Persephone: Kickout from Sol! Cepheus St. Claire, absolutely relentless from the get go! We are in for quite the ride tonight! Hannah Marin shouting instructions, calling for Sol to get to his feet. CEPHEUS ALREADY LOOKING FOR THAT PATENTED SUPERKICK!! SOL KNOWS THE TASTE OF HIS BOOT ALL TOO WELL!! CEPHEUS GOES FOR IT! BUT SOL AVOIDS IT AND COUNTERS INTO A SWINGING NECKBREAKER!!! DROPPING THE HEAD AND NECK OF ST. CLAIRE TO THE CANVAS!!! WHAT A MANEUVER FROM COLBY!
James Peters: Colby with an absolutely magnificent counter, showcasing his tremendous ring IQ. Sol now bringing St. Claire back to his feet. Meeting Cepheus with a stiff forearm to the face, now rebounding off the ropes, perhaps looking for a springboard clothesline! And he hits i-Wait, Oh my God?! CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE SNATCHING COLBY OUT OF THIN AIR, PREVENTING THE AERIAL ASSAULT BEFORE THE DAMAGE!! SHOWCASING HIS POUND FOR POUND STRENGTH, NOW DROPPING COLBY SOL TO THE CANVAS WITH A BRAINBUSTER!!! SOL WAS JUST RIPPED FROM THE HEAVENS AND MET WITH A GREETING FROM HELL!!! WHAT A COUNTER FROM CEPHEUS!!!
Rich Russillo; COLBY CLAWING HIS WAY TO THE CORNER, BUT HE’S NOT SAFE YET!!! HE CAN’T GET HIMSELF OUT OF HARM’S WAY, CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE LOOKING FOR THE “FOUR CORNERS OF DISDAIN”!! SOL’S IN :POSITION, ST. CLAIRE WITH “FOUR CORNERS OF DIS” COLBY AVOIDS IT, COLBY NARROWLY ESCAPED THE ATTEMPTED KNEE STRIKE AND NO DROPS CEPHEUS WITH AN ENZIGURI OF HIS OWN!! COLBY SOL NOW WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE OTHER KNEE, DROPPING ST. CLAIRE TO BOTH HIS KNEES! SOL SHOUTING AT CEPHEUS “TIME FOR A TASTE OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE, BITCH!” NOW SOL LOOKING FOR A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN!!! BUT ST. CLAIRE BARELY AVOIDING THE ATTEMPTED KICK, NOW STRIKES WITH A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN, SMACKING THE JAW OF COLBY SOL!! THAT KICK SOUNDED LIKE A DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUN!!! THE SPEED OF A MAMBA FROM CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!!!
James Peters: HE’S NOT DONE THERE, CEPHEUS NOW SENDS COLBY SOL BARRELING INTO THE CORNER WITH AN IRISH WHIP! HE NAILS “THE FOUR CORNERS OF DISDAIN” RIGHT ON THE DAMN BUTTON!!! THAT KNEE TO THE JAW OF SOL, WHO CRUMBLES TO THE CANVAS!!! CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE HEADS UP TO THE TOP ROPE, HE’S HEADING TO THE HIGH RED DISTRICT!!! ASCENDING THE TURNBUCKLES, WHAT THE HELL IS HE LOOKING FOR NOW?!?!? ST. CLAIREEEEEE FLIIIEEESSSSS WITH A FROGSPLASH!!!! FROGSPLASH FROM CEPHEUS, CRUSHING THAT ALREADY WEAKENED MIDSECTION OF COLBY!!! THIS COULD BE IT!!! CEPHEUS IN FOR THE PIN!!!
Persephone: KICKOUT!!! HE KICKED OUT!!! COLBY SOL IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS MATCH, HOW, WE MAY NEVER KNOW!!! BUT HE IS!!! JESSE BARLOW SHOUTING AT COLBY SOL, TELLING HIM TO STAY ALIVE, TO GE BACK AND FIGHT!! Barlow only angering Cepheus, who points to Jesse and says “THIS ONE IS FOR YOU, BOTH OF YOU!” Cepheus heading back to the corner, sizing up Colby Sol….HE APPEARS TO BE LOOKING FOR “THE SHADY ENDING”!! THIS WOULD SURELY END THE MATCH HERE, COLBY SOL’S ALREADY SUFFERED SO MUCH, HOW MUCH CAN ONE MAN ENDURE!!! Rich Russillo: HE’S GONNA DO IT, HE’S GONNA SEAL THE DEAL RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!!! SAY GOODBYE TO THE “SOL TRAIN”!!! CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE WITH THE “SHAADDDDYYYY ENDDD”- NO, COLBY SOL AVOIDS IT, SOL AVOIDING THE “SHADY ENDING” AND NOW QUICKLY ASCENDING TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! A BOOT TO THE FACE OF ST. CLAIRE, NOW SOL FLIES WITH A DROPKICK OFF THE SECOND ROPE!!!! RIGHT TO THE CHEST OF CEPHEUS, THAT MISSILE DROPKICK WAS DEVASTATING!!! IT SENT ST. SLAIRE FLYING OUT OF THE RING!! COLBY SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER, HE FEELS THE MOMENTUM SLOWLY SHIFTING TIDES IN THIS MATCH!! SOL OFF THE ROPES AGAIN AND HE FLIES WITH A SUIIICCIIIDDEEEE DIIIVVVEEEEEEE!!! TAKING OUT CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE ON THE OUTSIDE!! COLBY LETS OUT A ROAR OF ENERGY, HE’S FEELING IT!!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow calling for an end to this match, Colby rolls Cepheus back into the ring! Sizing him up…HE’S LOOKING FOR THE SUPERMAN PUNCH, IF SOL LANDS THIS, ST. CLAIRE’S LIGHTS WILL GO OUT AND HE’LL HAVE SECURED A HUGE WIN ON VOLTAGE!!! COLBY WITH THE SUPERMAN PUNCH!!! NO, CEPHEUS CAUGHT HIM, AND CLACKED HIS SKULL WITH A THUNDEROUS HEADBUTT!!! GOOD LORD, TALK ABOUT LIGHTS GOING OUT, LOOK NO FURTHER!! SOL IS OUT COLD!! NOW CEPHEUS LOOKS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE, WASTING NO TIME, HOSTING COLBY SOL UPPPPPP!!!! NOW DRIVING HIM RIGHT BACK DOWN WITH A BOMBING SITOUT POWERBOMB!!!! THIS IS IT, CEPHEUS INTO THE COVER!!!….
Persephone: HE KICKS OUT AT THE VERY LAST SECOND!!!!! HOW THE HELL IS HE IN THIS?!?!? CEPHEUS JUST RIPPED COLBY FROM THE SKIES AND SENT HIM CRASHING THROUGH THE EARTH, YET HE’S STILL FIGHTING!! COLBY SOL SHOWING JUST THAT, SOUL!!! HIS PERSEVERANCE IS SECOND TO NONE AND HE’S MORE THAN SHOWN IT TONIGHT!!! COLBY SOL CLENCHING HIS BACK TIGHTLY, JESSE BARLOW WITH A LOOK OF PANIC ON HIS FACE! HE KNOWS COLBY IS ON THE ROPES, HE KNOWS THIS MATCH IS SUDDEN DEATH, ONE WRONG MOVE AND IT COULD BE OVER FOR EITHER MAN! BUT THAT MAN APPEARS TO BE COLBY SOL, AS OF RIGHT NOW! Sol struggling to his feet, clenching his midsection, his organs bouncing against his ribcage, my good, what a move. How he survived, I have no idea.
Rich Russillo: There’s one thing Jesse Barlow can’t teach Colby and that’s resiliency. This guy is impossible to put down! He has the heart of a champion! Cepheus St. Clair is visibly frustrated as the match continues, Colby has found a way to survive a possible injury AND some of Cepheus most dangerous moves! Cepheus now is picking Colby back up… he is yelling at him!
Cepheus St. Claire (Off mic): STAY DOWN! YOU HEAR ME?!
James Peters: OOOF! CEPHEUS WITH A POWERFUL SLAP ACROSS THE FACE OF COLBY, JUST STRAIGHT UP DISRESPECT AND.. OH NO WAIT A MINUTE! SOL FOOD BY COLBY SOL! COLBY SOL JUST HIT HIS EAT DEFEAT FROM OUTTA NOWHERE! CEPHEUS COLLAPSES TO THE MAT BUT SO DOES COLBY! COLBY SOL DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH STRENGTH LEFT TO GO FOR THE COVER! WHAT A SHAME!
Rich Russillo: Sometimes it’s best to just take things slow and recover, instead of pushing the offense. Colby Sol is now gasping for air on the mat, while Cepheus is completely out of it! He is staring at the lights… no, nevermind! He is now back to his knees, slowly trying to make it back to his feet as the referee is starting a double count…
James Peters: Cepheus got a hold of the middle rope, he is now back up! Meanwhile Colby Sol is crawling towards the corner… I’m not sure he is going to make it in time.
Rich Russillo: Well, nevermind then! Cepheus St. Claire just picked up Colby Sol and just like that the count has been interrupted. Not sure if he did that out of spite as he is trying to inflict as much damage as possible or maybe he is so spent he is not even thinking straight anymore. Either way, the count has been interrupted and now Cepheus is just unloading on Colby Sol in the corner. He is leaving him no room to breathe as he is pouring in lefts and rights with absolutely no remorse! Cepheus is going for his knee to the face again, FOUR CORNERS OF DISD… NO! COLBY SOL GOT OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME AND HE IS GOING FOR HIS DIRTY BOXING, THE HEADBUTT CONNECTS!! WAIT! CEPHEUS GOT HIS ARMS UP, HE MANAGED TO PARRY SOME OF THE IMPACT… HE IS STILL STUNNED BUT COLBY DEFINITELY DID NOT GET ALL OF IT… SUPERKICK!!! SUPERKICK BY CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE, HE JUST KILLED COLBY SOL RIGHT THERE… CEPHEUS COLLAPSES ON TOP OF COLBY SOL, HE DOES NOT HAVE THE STRENGTH TO HOOK THE LEG…
Rich Russillo: NOOOOOOOO! KICKOUT YET AGAIN! COLBY IS STILL IN THIS MATCH, COLBY IS STILL ALIVE! I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I AM SEEING RIGHT HERE! Cepheus St. Claire can’t believe it either, he is complaining with the referee and so is Lonnie Delmonty who apparently is not really happy with what happened just a few seconds ago. There’s no amount of money or power that can buy you a win over Colby Sol, though! Cepheus must EARN his victory here! And it seems like Colby just does not want to stay down.
James Peters: Cepheus St. Claire goes back on the attack… NOO! COLBY SOL WAS PLAYING POSSUM! THE ANKLE LOCK IS LOCKED IN! CEPHEUS THOUGHT HE HAD COLBY SOL DEAD TO RIGHTS BUT HE HAS SOME FIGHT LEFT IN HIM! COLBY SOL WITH THE SOL 2 KEEP LOCKED IN! CEPHEUS IS TRAPPED! COLBY HAS A FIRM GRIP OF HIS ANKLE AND HE IS NOW WRAPPING HIS OWN LEGS AROUND CEPHEUS TO MAKE SURE HE CANNOT GET AWAY! CEPHEUS IS SCREAMING IN AGONY BUT THE ROPES ARE REALLY CLOSE, I THINK HE CAN EASILY GET THERE IF HE PUSHES JUST A LITTLE FORWARD! CEPHEUS CRAWLS TOWARDS THE ROPES, HE IS JUST FINGERTIPS AWAY FROM THE ROPE BREAK… COLBY SOL IS SCREAMING JUST AS LOUD AS CEPHEUS! DRAMATIC MOMENT, THIS MIGHT VERY WELL BE THE TURNING POINT OF THE MATCH!
Rich Russillo: NOOOOOO! COLBY SOL JUST GOT UP AND SOMEHOW MANAGED TO DRAG CEPHEUS ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! WHERE DID HE FIND THE STRENGTH?! COLBY SOL STILL IN THIS FIGHT, DESPITE THE INJURIES HE STILL HAS THE ANKLE OF CEPHEUS LOCKED IN… THE REFEREE IS ASKING HIM IF HE WANTS TO GIVE UP… NO! NO, CEPHEUS IS STILL IN THIS FIGHT…
James Peters: HE IS NOT GIVING UP…. CEPHEUS NOW IS TRYING TO REVERSE THE HOLD, HE SLAPS THE LEG OF COLBY, DESPERATION IS STARTING TO SHOW ON I HIS FACE! COLBY IS RELENTLESS, THE SLAPS ARE NOT PHASING HIM ONE BIT. CEPHEUS HAS TO FIND ANOTHER WAY… HE FLIPS OVER TO THE SIDE… YES! HE GOT HIS FREE LEG MOVING AGAIN, HE IS ON HIS KNEE, AS COLBY IS STILL WRAPPED AROUND THE OTHER LEG… OOOOOF! WHAT A STIFF SHOT TO THE FACE… AND ANOTHER ONE! ANOTHER PUNCH! THE REFEREE IS YELLING AT CEPHEUS, PUNCHES ARE ILLEGAL! BUT THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE, COLBY HAS TO RELEASE THE HOLD… AND HE LOOKS LIKE HE IS OUT TOO!
Rich Russillo: Not only Cepheus has managed to escape the Sol 2 Keep, but it looks like he just knocked him out cold. Colby isn’t even moving anymore! Cepheus is crawling all the way to the corner, he is now using the ropes to get back to his feet. The referee is checking on Colby, I think he is nodding to the referee… yes, he wants to continue. Cepheus is back to his feet, he is still hobbling on one leg though! Will he have enough strength to put this one away!?
James Peters: What an unbelievable match we have been witnessing here tonight… It looks like Cepheus finally wants to put this away! Colby Sol is down and out, I’m not sure he can come back at this point. Cepheus is looking for the Shady Ending! Colby Sol is almost back to his feet… SHADY ENDIN…. NO! I SPOKE TOO SOON! COLBY SOL FOUND A WAY TO STAND HIS GROUND AND HE HAS PUSHED CEPHEUS AWAY… OH NO! HANNAH MARIN IS ON THE APRON! CEPHEUS STOPPED JUST IN TIME, AS HE WAS JUST A FEW INCHES AWAY FROM CRASHING ONTO HER! WHAT THE HECK IS SHE EVEN DOING THERE!?
Rich Russillo: I’m not sure, James. Hannah Marin is getting involved for no reason whatsoever. She is shouting at Cepheus as he is distracted! His back is turned! Colby Sol has to capitalize on the opportunity! The referee is busy trying to tell her to get down from there… meanwhile at ringside… OH NO! REPENT BY JESSE BARLOW! HE JUST KILLED LONNIE DELMONTY AND NEITHER CEPHEUS NOR THE REFEREE NOTICED!
Persephone: What is going on here!? WHAT IS SHE THINKING….
James Peters: Colby! Colby Sol is back to his feet… HE ROLLS CEPHEUS UP! NO WAY, HE WAS STILL DISTRACTED! COLBY IS ABOUT TO STEAL ONE HERE! THE REFEREE STARTS THE COUNT..
(DING DING DING)
James Peters: He did it! Colby Sol did it! He won!
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, here is your winner… Colby Soooool!
(“A history of Bad Men” by the Melvins plays up as the referee is checking on Colby Sol. The “Lone Sol” isn’t even able to make it to his feet and he is simply laying on the mat, holding his midsection, still visibly in pain after the brutal match he was just put through)
James Peters: Cepheus St. Claire is livid! And rightfully so, if I may add! Yet again, Hannah Marin stuck her nose in someone else’s business and caused a shady win. What a disgusting thing to see!
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin are celebrating at ringside as if they were the ones who won this damn thing, meanwhile… NO! WAIT A MINUTE! CEPHEUS GOT A HOLD OF A STEEL CHAIR AND HE HAS GOT BACK INSIDE THE RING! HE SCARES THE REFEREE OFF AS COLBY IS NOW LEFT ALONE WITH HIM INSIDE THE SQUARED CIRCLE!
Persephone: Get in there and save your buddy, Jesse! Do it!
James Peters: Jesse Barlow might call himself a savior, but that steel chair is making him think twice about saving Colby Sol. I think he and Hannah are just going to stand there and look at the disaster they have caused! Cepheus is angry and he wants revenge! The official is screaming at him from ringside, hoping he will reconsider his actions! But I’m afraid this is too late, I’m afraid Cepheus is going to make things right his own way!
Rich Russillo: NO NO NO! CEPHEUS IS UNLOADING ON COLBY SOL WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR! A SICK THUD ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA AS THE STEEL CONNECTS WITH COLBY’S CHEST! AND ANOTHER SHOT FOR GOOD MEASURE! ANOTHER ONE! AND A FOURTH ONE NOW! SOMEONE HAS TO STOP HIM, CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE IS GOING TO END COLBY SOL’S CAREER TONIGHT!
James Peters: Colby Sol made a deal with the Devil and he is paying for it. Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin are staring in horror as Cepheus is destroying Colby Sol inside that ring. Not only Cepheus was robbed of his win here tonight, but the sight of Lonnie Delmonty passed out at ringside was probably too much for him! He snapped! More and more officials are now surrounding the ring, yelling at Cepheus and telling him to stop but he simply does not want to listen! He is relentless in his assault! OH NO WHAT DOES HE HAVE IN MIND NOW!? CEPHEUS HAS PUT THE STEEL CHAIR DOWN AND HE IS NOW PICKING COLBY SOL BACK UP…. CEPHEUS LOOKS STRAIGHT INTO JESSE BARLOW’S EYES AS COLBY SOL IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT…
Cepheus St. Claire (Off Mic): THIS IS ON YOU, JESSE!
Rich Russillo: Oh no, this is hard to watch! SHADY ENDING ON THE STEEL CHAIR! CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE JUST MADE AN EMPHATIC STATEMENT HERE TONIGHT! COLBY SOL MIGHT HAVE WON THE MATCH BUT CEPHEUS IS THE ONE WHO WON THE WAR! IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE COLBY IS UNCONSCIOUS! WE NEED MEDICAL PERSONNEL OUT HERE!
James Peters: FINALLY! The cavalry has arrived! Officials and medical staff are now swarming the ring! Cepheus puts his hands up and backs off, with a sick smile on his face. The damage has already been done, I’m not sure Colby Sol will be able to compete anytime soon! He might be injured! Let’s hope it’s nothing serious, but by the looks of it he might need some time to recover!
Persephone: Pfffff…. If he was a man, he’d just walk it off on his way to the parking lot. But, of course, what can you expect from someone who has Jesse Barlow to fight his battles from him? Of course he is going to leave the arena on his back, I am not surprised, not one bit.
Rich Russillo: Cepheus St. Claire is staring a hole in Jesse Barlow as the medical personnel are tending to Colby Sol. If there was a crowd out here, they would be dead silent in front of this shocking scene. The message has been sent, loud and clear. Cepheus is not messing around and both Jesse and Colby are now aware of the fact.
(Voltage fades to the backstage area.)
(The camera fades backstage, where Ms. Extreme is standing alongside Consuela Rose Ava, and Showdown’s Candice Blair, who is getting ready for her Answers World Championship number one contenders No Way Out match at Odyssey. Candice looks ready for the match and Consuela has a very supportive look on her face, and while Camille also has a smile on her face, it’s easy to tell that something is wrong.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Pain for Pride is only a month away, I’m honestly excited to see where we all end up.
Candice Blair: Well if you retain your Interwire Championship at Fighting Spirit, I think we know where you’ll end up. Walking into Pain for Pride as a Champion is a pretty big deal you know.
Consuela Rose Ava: Yeah, although you have a chance to get a huge match at Pain for Pride, and while you may not be walking in as Champion you always have the chance to walk out as one. Good luck in your No Way Out match.
Ms. Extreme: Yeah, good luck Candice.
(Camille had a pretty low tone in her voice, and had a pretty depressing look on her face behind the faint smile.)
Candice Blair: Thank you. Wait, is everything alright Camille?
Consuela Rose Ava: Yeah you don’t look too great. What’s wrong?
(It was pretty obvious to the other two sisters that something was up with Camille. It looked like she was hiding how she felt with the smile, but she didn’t do a great job of hiding those feelings. After Candice and Consuela asked their questions, Camille simply dropped the smile and let out a sigh.)
Ms. Extreme: To be honest, everything. Everything seems to be going wrong. I lost the Interwire Championship. I lost to Terry on Voltage. I don’t really have a clear path to Pain for Pride, and what happened last week didn’t exactly help. On top of that, Malcolm Jones refused to put me in the No Way Out match at Fighting Spirit. You two have certain paths to Pain for Pride, meanwhile I have nothing. I don’t know what to do. What am I supposed to do at this point, I have no way to get to Pain for Pride. Honestly at this point, I don’t even know if I’m going to be able to make it on the show at all.
Consuela Rose Ava: Well, if it makes you feel any better, both Candice and I have huge hurdles to cross before we could get to Pain for Pride. Candice has to go through that huge No Way Out match at Odyssey, and I have to defeat both Gavin McArdle and Colby Sol. None of us have a certain path. We all have obstacles we need to cross, this isn’t going to be easy for any of us.
(Candice places her hand on Camille’s shoulder, trying to help cheer her up.)
Candice Blair: Consuela is right Camille, but you know what? You just need to make your own path. You can do it, we all know you can. You’re Camille Jane Ava. Ms. Extreme. You got to where you are today for a reason Camille. You didn’t become the longest reigning PURE Champion for no reason, just like you didn’t win the Interwire Championship for no reason. You’re extremely talented Camille and you know this. I don’t think there’s anything that you can’t do, if anyone should be able to carve out a way to Pain for Pride, it’s you. I know that we all have a similar goal. We all want to honor Cameron’s legacy, and make it to Pain for Pride for her. If you still want to honor Cameron as much as you did when you talked to Malcolm, you can’t just give up now.
(Camille takes a few seconds to think about what Candice said, and soon after a smile appears on her face as she nods in agreement with her.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Hey, why don’t you go speak to Captain Charisma about the whole No Way Out match situation and see what he says? Malcolm Jones might’ve said no, but that’s Malcolm Jones, and he was only in charge for that week. Captain Charisma knows your value, I bet he won’t turn you down if you ask him.
(Camille had suddenly realized that Consuela was right. Malcolm Jones had turned down Camille, but Malcolm was only in charge of Voltage for one week. Now that Captain Charisma is back in charge, she now has a much better chance of being allowed into the No Way Out match.
Ms. Extreme: You know what? You’re right. I’ll go talk to him. Thank you two.
Consuela Rose Ava: It’s no problem, we’re happy to help.
Candice Blair: Yeah, good luck. Hopefully he agrees to let you in.
(Ms. Extreme finally takes her leave, and the camera then fades to Captain Charisma’s office. After a few moments his door opens, which surprises him until he sees who opened it. Camille had entered his office, there to speak about Fighting Spirit, and how she’s supposed to get to Pain for Pride without any opportunities to work towards. Seeing the look on her face, Captain Charisma had understood this already, and immediately allowed her to take a seat.)
Ms. Extreme: Hi, can we talk?
Captain Charisma: Sure, and I think I already know why you’re here. It’s about what happened last week, isn’t it?
Ms. Extreme: Yes, it is. Thanks to Malcolm I don’t exactly know how I’m supposed to make it to Pain for Pride. I did my best to be nice but he still wouldn’t let me in the No Way Out match. He knew how much I wanted to be in the match, and he knew just how much that match meant to me, and he still refused. You know how much I don’t like asking anyone for anything, but even after making an exception to Malcolm Jones of all people, someone who shouldn’t have been allowed to get the power he had in the first place, he still wouldn’t do it. Then to make it all even worse, he took it as some type of joke. He thought that what he did was funny.
(It’s clear Ms. Extreme is doing everything that she can to remain calm in front of Captain Charisma, but it’s nearly impossible to not be upset when the one match that’d give her a clear road to Pain for Pride, Malcolm Jones didn’t allow her to take part of it. Captain Charisma understood her frustrations, and knew how unfair it was for her knowing all she had been through the past season. Captain Charisma simply gives a pretty cheerful chuckle before beginning to speak.)
Captain Charisma: Well, you did kind of drag Malcolm’s name through the mud during the week. You couldn’t really have expected the guy to give you a handout, right?
(Camille simply rolls her eyes, as while she did say a lot about Malcolm that week, she was still frustrated over everything.)
Captain Charisma: Look, I know you Camilel. You’ve more than earned a chance to compete for a Pain for Pride main event and a World Championship match. You’ve been one of Voltage’s most consistently great Elitists all season. After all you’ve done for the brand this past year, it’d be unfair for me not to reward you in some way. I’d be happy to see you in the No Way Match Camille.
(Camille’s eyes light up hearing the last sentence from Captain Charisma.)
Ms. Extreme: So you’ll put me in it?
Captain Charisma: Of course I will. If there’s anyone that deserves this opportunity it’s you. I wish you the best Camille, is that all?
Ms. Extreme: Yes, that’s all. Thank you.
Captain Charisma: No problem, good luck.
(Camille leaves the office with a smile on her face, clearly happy with the result of her talk with Captain Charisma. The Voltage Commissioner goes back to doing more work, seemingly proud of his decision to put Camille in the No Way Out match as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for HelloFresh featuring Kassidy Heart. This time she’s cooking pecan crusted trout with an apple studded salad and thyme roasted potatoes. Mr. DEDEDE makes sure she cooks it wearing only an apron and heels :mjlit:)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the ringside area.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, our special guest commentator for this match, the Interwire Champion, Consuela Rose Ava!
(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes hits, and Consiela Rose Ava makes her way down the entrance ramp wearing the Interwire Championship around her waist, walking down the ring towards the commentary table. She has a commentary headset already on as she takes a seat next to the commentary table.)
James Peters: Consuela! Glad to see you here, it makes sense that you’re with us seeing as Gavin McArdle is one of the two men that you’ll be taking on at Fighting Spirit for the Interwire Championship!
Consuela Rose Ava: That is correct, thank you.
Rich Russillo: Colby Sol was supposed to be out here tonight, but I don’t expect to see him out here after what happened earlier, so let’s get straight into this, shall we?
(‘The Path’ by Senses Fail hits, and Jesse Barlow walks out to the stage, and Hannah Marin follows. He immediately begins walking down to the stage, and Consuela grows disgusted look on her face seeing the two walk down the ramp. Jesse on the other hand looks focused, and especially frustrated after what happened to Colby Sol earlier in the night.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… Accompanied by Hannah Marin… From Hoboken, New Jersey…. Weighing in at 210 pounds… JJEEEEESSSSSEEEEEEE BAAAAAAARRRRRLLLOOOOOWWWW!!!!!!
James Peters: Well Consuela right off the bat I know you’re not the most fond of Jesse, but all that aside, what do you have to say about his chances here tonight?
Consuela Rose Ava: I can’t say he doesn’t stand a chance at all, that’s for sure. Hannah alone helps him out a lot. I fully expect her to get involved in some fashion tonight.
Rich Russillo: I agree, but can you blame Jesse? If someone was willing to help me out, I’d take their help too.
Consuela Rose Ava: Yeah, I think I can blame Hannah for unfairly helping Jesse win matches every chance she gets.
Persephone: BORING can we just move on already?
(‘The Body of an American’ by The Pogues follows, and soon after Gavin McArdle makes his way out to the stage with Damien O’Regan. Gavin has an angry look on his face seeing Jesse Barlow, and he immediately walks down to the ring, wanting to get the match started as soon as possible so he can get his hands on the man that initially screwed him over.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent…. Accompanied by Damien O’Regan…. From Monaghan, Ireland…. Weighing in at 220 pounds… GAAAAAAAAAVVIIIIIIIINNNNNNN MMMMMCCAAARRRRRDDDLLEEE!!!!!!
Persephone: He’s fat.
James Peters: What?
Persephone: He’s fat. Not like Terry Chambers fat, but he’s probably gonna end up like him pretty soon.
Consuela Rose Ava: ….
James Peters: He looks just fine to me- You know what, nevermind. Gavin McArdle was screwed over against Colby Sol for number one contendership to the Interwire Championship. Now Consuela, you already granted Gavin an opportunity at the title regardless, but I’m sure Gavin wants revenge nonetheless. What are you expecting from Gavin tonight?
Consuela Rose Ava: I’m expecting Gavin to bring the fight to Jesse. This is his chance to get payback, and this is his chance to show what he’s capable of before his Interwire Championship match against me and Colby Sol, if Colby’s okay at least.
Rich Russillo: Damien O’Regan being here may even the odds as well, so let’s just see what happens, shall we?
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And now this match is underway! Jesse Barlow versus Gavin McArdle. Hannah Marin and Damien O’Regan are at ringside, and Consuela Rose Ava is joining us on commentary- AND GAVIN IMMEDIATELY TAKE DOWN BARLOW! WE ALL KNOW THESE TWO HAVE THEIR ISSUES, ESPECIALLY AFTER BARLOW INITIALLY COST GAVIN NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP! GAVIN NOW ON TOP OF JESSE, AND HE’S ALREADY LAYING INTO HIM WITH THESE PUNCHES! GAVIN IS GOING RIGHT AFTER JESSE, NOT EVEN GIVING HIM A CHANCE TO BREATHE HERE AS HE CONTINUES TO LAY WASTE TO BARLOW!
Consuela Rose Ava: Maybe Jesse is gonna regret getting involved in Gavin’s match.
Rich Russillo: WAIT! JESSE MANAGED TO PUSH GAVIN OFF OF HIM! Jesse getting back to his feet and he just stumbles back into the corner, BUT NOW GAVIN CHARGES IN! RIGHT INTO A BOOT FROM JESSE! JESSE NOW ROLLING GAVIN UP!
Rich Russillo: GAVIN KICKS OUT, AND AS SOON AS GAVIN GOT UP HE ATTEMPTED TO HIT JESSE WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT JESSE MANAGED TO DUCK IT BEFORE GRABBING GAVIN FROM BEHIND AND DELIVERING A GERMAN SUPLEX! Gavin is able to roll back to his feet holding his neck in pain, and now Jesse grabs him and sends him into the corner!
Persephone: Jesse ran to Gavin but Gavin took Jesse down with the weakest lariat I’ve seen in my entire life. How weak could Jesse be to have been taken down by that? Gavin now is picking Jesse up, and now he just knees Jesse in the midsection. Jesse just hit Gavin with a punch to the midsection in retaliation, and wow he just poked Gavin in the eye. Jeez if only Gavin wasn’t so big and fat the referee would’ve seen it.
James Peters: Gavin looks pretty fit to me tho-
Persephone: He’s fat.
James Peters: Ok. Anyways Jesse now grabbed Gavin by the neck and now is repeatedly slamming him face first into the turnbuckles. Damien tried getting the referee’s attention to tell him what Jesse did, but the referee isn’t having it. Jesse now with an irish whip to the ropes, AND JESSE TAKES GAVIN DOWN WITH A FOREARM! GAVIN MANAGES TO GET BACK UP, BUT JESSE SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE! GAVIN MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON AND JESSE GOES TO ATTACK, BUT GAVIN HITS JESSE WITH A FOREARM! GAVIN HEADING UP TO-
Rich Russillo: HANNAH IS GRABBING GAVIN’S LEG! THE REFEREE SPOTS HANNAH AND IS FORCING HER TO LET GO, BUT THAT DISTRACTION WAS ALL JESSE NEEDED IN ORDER TO KNOCK HIM OFF THE APRON! Damien going up to Hannah and arguing with her over this, meanwhile Jesse now is exiting the ring in pursuit of Gavin!
Consuela Rose Ava: What a coward. I know Damien is probably gonna get involved sooner or later, but at this point can you really blame him?
Rich Russillo: Honestly, probably not. Anyways, Gavin was trying to use the barricade to get back to his feet, BUT JESSE NOW IS JUST CONNECTING WITH REPEATED KNEE LIFTS TO THE MIDSECTION! JESSE NOW, RAMMING GAVIN INTO THE BARRICADE! Consuela, Gavin is one of the two men fighting for your Interwire Championship at Fighting Spirit, but right now things aren’t looking too good for him. Does that make you any more confident in your chances going into Fighting Spirit?
Consuela Rose Ava: Is it supposed to? Gavin was cheap shotted twice now. I’m sure Gavin will do much better at Fighting Spirit, but regardless I’m confident in my chances.
Persephone: I don’t know why, you’re really not that good Consuela and I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see you lose your title at Fighting whatever the shows’ name is.
Consuela Rose Ava: Oh. Thanks, I guess?
Persephone: Anyways, Jesse just sent Gavin into the ring post, but now he just picked him up again and slammed his face into the same post. Jesse now rolling Gavin into the ring, and now he goes for a cover that hopefully ends this match already.
Persephone: Okay, Gavin kicked out. He must be deaf or something, I’m pretty sure they should be able to hear me from over here.
James Peters: Well Persephone, Gavin must want to actually win this match. Anyways, Jesse now has Gavin in a rear chinlock, and is doing whatever he can to try and wear him down as he tightens his arms around Gavin’s throat. Gavin is trying to get back to his feet, but Jesse is doing what he can to make sure Gavin stays down. Honestly things really aren’t looking too great for Gavin here, BUT WAIT! GAVIN GETS ONE LEG UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET! GAVIN IS STARTING TO GET BACK UP!
Rich Russillo: GAVIN TAKES JESSE DOWN WITH AN ARM DRAG! JESSE MANAGES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT GAVIN GOES RIGHT AFTER HIM! OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX BY GAVIN!! GAVIN IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW!! JESSE NOW IS BACKED INTO THE CORNER, AND NOW GAVIN CHARGES IN, HITTING A HUGE CLOTHESLINE IN THE CORNER! GAVIN NOW FOLLOWING IT UP WITH…. WOW! HUGE STALLING SUPLEX BY GAVIN, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: JESSE MANAGES TO KICK OUT! Gavin now immediately picking Jesse up though, AND HE GETS JESSE IN A BEARHUG!
Consuela Rose Ava: Pretty impressive I must admit.
Persephone: How??? What’s impressive about hugging someone? I really don’t get it. And even worse, for some reason Jesse isn’t able to get out of it. Jesse why are you struggling??? He’s literally hugging you, if it hurts that bad just hug him back.
Consuela Rose Ava: I don’t think that’s just a normal hug-
Persephone: Shut up. I know what I’m talking about most boring Ava.
Consuela Rose Ava: Do you really? Anyways, look, Jesse got out of it. Are you happy now?
Persephone: Nope. Took him way too long.
James Peters: Anyways… Like Consuela said Jesse got out of the bearhug, and he did it by hitting Gavin with a huge headbutt! Jesse now, HITTING GAVIN WITH A HUGE ROUNDHOUSE KICK! GAVIN DROPPING DOWN TO A KNEE, AND NOW JESSE LIFTS GAVIN UP FOR A SUPLEX, BUT GAVIN PULLS HIMSELF DOWN BEFORE LIFTING JESSE UP FOR ONE OF HIS OWN! JESSE MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET, AND NOW HE GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT GAVIN DUCKS IT, CAUSING JESSE TO HIT THE REFEREE IN THE FACE! THE REFEREE ISN’T DOWN BUT HE’S COVERING HIS FACE IN PAIN, SO JESSE IS JUST RUNNING THE ROPES ANYWAY- JUST FOR DAMIEN TO GRAB JESSE BY THE LEGS AND TRIP HIM!
Rich Russillo: JESSE CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED, BUT NOW GAVIN HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO CAPITALIZE! GAVIN NOW, WITH A TASTE OF MONAGHAN!!! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BACKBREAKER CONNECTS AS THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COME BACK TO HIS SENSES, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER BY MCARDLE!!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Rich Russillo: JESSE MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!!
(Damien O’Regan begins to approach the commentary table, towards Consuela specifically as the Interwire Champion gains a confused look on her face.)
Damien O’Regan (Off-Mic): Hey beautiful, how’d I do?
Consuela Rose Ava: Excuse me?
Damien O’Regan (Off-Mic): Did you see me help Smackers, I did a good job didn’t I?
Consuela Rose Ava: Sure..?
Damien O’Regan (Off-Mic): Good, good. I’m glad. You know, I’d love to sit here with you and chat a bit more, but Gavin might-
Consuela Rose Ava: Please, you can go.
James Peters: Damien walking back to ringside, and Consuela, what was that about?
Consuela Rose Ava: You’re asking the wrong person.
Persephone: Yeah I don’t get it either. I mean, beautiful? Really?
Consuela Rose Ava: Sorry, did I do something to you or something?
Persephone: No, not really. I just don’t like you, or anyone else but Sexy Rexy for that matter.
Consuela Rose Ava: I see..
Persephone: Anyways, Gavin has Jesse in a standing headlock, and he’s punching him in the midsection at the same time. Jesse seems pretty weak so he’s probably gonna actually tap out to a headlock. Honestly I wouldn’t be mad if that was the case. Anything to avoid this match going on any longer than it already has. Jesse is trying to fight out of it but he can’t because he’s an awful wrestler, and I think this is really it. I think Jesse is about to tap out. This is amazi- nevermind.
James Peters: JESSE BARLOW HITS GAVIN WITH A BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX!! Gavin has been in control of this match for a bit but now it looks like Jesse’s turned the tables here. Jesse now backing into the corner, waiting for Gavin to get to his feet, and honestly this doesn’t look too good for Gavin. I can only imagine a few things Jesse could be setting up for, and if he connects with either of them it could be the end of the match! Gavin McArdle getting back up, AND NOW JESSE CHARGES RIGHT AT HIM! ABOLISHER-
Rich Russillo: NO! IT DOESN’T CONNECT!! GAVIN JUST KNEED JESSE IN THE FACE BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT WITH THE ABOLISHER!! GAVIN NOW PICKING JESSE UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, AND HE DRIVES HIM DOWN INTO THE MAT WITH A POWERBOMB!! GAVIN TURNING JESSE AROUND NOW, AND THERE’S THE CLOVERLEAF SUBMISSION!!! GAVIN HAS COMPLETED THE IRISH DELIGHT, AND NOW JESSE IS IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE!! HONESTLY, I DON’T THINK JESSE HAS ANY CHANCES OF GETTING OUT OF THIS, ESPECIALLY AFTER GETTING HIT WITH A POWERBOMB!
Persephone: Oh yes, please tap out now. There’s no weak fragile little Jesse Barlow is gonna get out of this submission so he’s better off just tapping out now or that fatty on top of him is gonna break his spine. Wait no Jesse you idiot what are you doing?
Consuela Rose Ava: He’s crawling to the ro-
Persephone: Shut up I know what he’s doing but why??
Consuela Rose Ava: Because he doesn’t want to tap ou-
Persephone: Again, I know. But I really wish these two could kinda speed things up here. I don’t see why we need to sit through a three hour long match.
James Peters: WAIT, LOOK AT THAT!! HANNAH MARIN IS PUSHING FORWARD THE BOTTOM ROPE SO IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR JESSE TO REACH IT! THE REFEREE IS TELLING HANNAH OFF AND TELLING HER JESSE WOULD BE DISQUALIFIED IF SHE DOESN’T LET GO, BUT IT’S TOO LATE! JESSE MANAGED TO GET THE BOTTOM ROPE! THANKS TO HANNAH, JESSE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH AND GAVIN CAN’T BELIEVE IT! I’M SURE JESSE WOULD’VE BEEN FORCED TO TAP OUT IF IT WASN’T FOR HANNAH GETTING INVOLVED THERE! GAVIN NEEDS TO FINISH THIS THOUGH, HE CAN’T LET JESSE RECOVER!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, I THINK GAVIN MAY HAVE REALIZED THAT HIMSELF! GAVIN IS PICKING JESSE UP, AND I THINK WE MAY BE APPROACHING THE END OF THIS MATCH NOW! GAVIN NOW, WITH THE IRELAND’S CALL- WAIT WHAT!? JESSE WITH A SUNSET FLIP TO GET OUT OF WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN A HUGE GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB!!! JESSE’S GONNA STEAL THIS ONE!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Rich Russillo: GAVIN KICKS OUT AT THE LAST MOMENT, AND KICKS JESSE IN THE FACE AS SOON AS HE GETS BACK UP! You can see the frustration in Gavin’s eyes as Jesse nearly stole that win from him, just like Jesse gave Colby a win against Gavin a few weeks ago! That was a very close call!
Persephone: That was clearly three, I don’t know why the referee is suddenly counting so slow.
Consuela Rose Ava: That wasn’t three and the referee was counting at the same pace he always does.
Persephone: Yeah and that pace is way too slow, these matches need to hurry up. The only person the referee should be counting this slow for is Rex, because his matches could go on forever and I’d be perfectly fine with that.
James Peters: Right.. Anyways Gavin now is attempting the Ireland’s Call again, BUT JESSE HITS A DOUBLE LEG TAKE DOWN! JESSE NOW BACKING INTO THE CORNER AS GAVIN SLOWLY GETS UP, AND NOW HE CHARGES IN, WHERE DID THIS SUDDEN BURST OF ENERGY COME FROM!? ABOLISHER BY JESSE BARLOW!!!
Consuela Rose Ava: Ouch, not looking too good for Gavin there.
James Peters: NOT LOOKING GOOD AT ALL! JESSE NOW WITH THE COVER, AND THIS MAY BE IT!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
James Peters: WAIT A SECOND, NO!! DAMIEN JUST PUT GAVIN’S FOOT ON THE ROPES, AND NOW HE JUST CALLED OVER THE REFEREE JUST AS HIS HAND WAS ABOUT TO HIT THE MAT FOR THE THREE COUNT! THIS MATCH IS STILL ON AND JESSE IS IN SHOCK!
Rich Russillo: Jesse can’t believe what just happened, but now it looks like he’s just brushing off what happened and aiming to put this match away! Jesse has made his way up to the top rope, and wait! Damien is calling out to Jesse, and he’s got his attention, but not for long! Jesse isn’t letting himself get distracted! FEAR OF GOD- WAIT NO! GAVIN GOT THE KNEES UP! THOSE FEW SECONDS DAMIEN GOT JESSE’S ATTENTION SEEMED TO BE ALL GAVIN NEEDED, AS GAVIN MANAGED TO SAVE HIMSELF FROM WHAT DEFINITELY WOULD’VE BEEN THE END OF THIS MATCH!
Persephone: Uuuugh. Why isn’t this the end??? STOP, PLEASE JUST STOP ALREADY! Nobody cares about this match. Why do we need to see this!? Please can we just move on already? We get it, Jesse screwed Gavin over or something, NOBODY CARES! God this is so boring. Gavin is starting to get back to his feet, and I swear to God if whatever he’s about to try and do doesn’t end the match I’m going to explode.
James Peters: Well, Gavin is trying to lift Jesse up for a powerbomb, BUT JESSE PUNCHES GAVIN IN THE MIDSECTION! JESSE IS STILL TRYING TO FIGHT- BUT GAVIN HITS HIM WITH A HUGE HEADBUTT! BOTH MEN COLLAPSE, BUT ONCE AGAIN GAVIN IS THE FIRST TO GET BACK UP! GAVIN NOW GRABBING JESSE BY THE LEGS, AND I THINK HE’S TRYING TO SET UP THAT CLOVERLEAF SUBMISSION AGAIN, THIS TIME WITHOUT THE POWERBOMB! WAIT, NO! JESSE IS ABLE TO AVOID THE SUBMISSION AS HE PULLS GAVIN DOWN INTO A PIN, AND HE’S GOT THE TIGHTS!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Rich Russillo: GAVIN MCARDLE MANAGES TO KICK OUT!!!
Consuela Rose Ava: These two are fighting pretty hard. I’m now even more sure Gavin will put up a fight at Fighting Spirit.
Rich Russillo: Gavin now, WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE AS JESSE TRIED TO CAPITALIZE! GAVIN NOW SETTING UP FOR IRELAND’S CALL- BUT JESSE TOSSES GAVIN OVER HIM- RIGHT INTO THE REFEREE!!! THE REFEREE IS DOWN, AND GAVIN IS ABLE TO GET BACK UP QUICKLY- BUT JUST AS HE STUMBLED INTO THE ROPES, HANNAH MARIN JUST POKED HER FINGERS INTO BOTH OF HIS EYES! HANNAH NOW RAKING GAVIN’S EYES, AND NOW LOOK AT THAT!! LOW BLOW BY JESSE BARLOW, JUST WHEN I THOUGHT THINGS COULDN’T GET ANY WORSE FOR HIM!
Consuela Rose Ava: I take back what I said. At least Gavin did his best for the most part, should’ve expected this out of Jesse, once again.
Persephone: WHO CARES!?!? It looks like this is the match so that’s a thumbs up for me! The referee is getting back up to his feet slowly and you know what that means! Jesse running the ropes as Gavin is nearly up, AND THERE IT IS! NEVERMORE!! YESSS!!!! NEVERMORE CONNECTS AND JESSE PINS THAT FAT PIG! PLEASE REF HURRY UP AND COUNT!
James Peters: DAMIEN IS TRYING TO GET IN THE RING TO HELP AFTER WHAT JUST HAPPENED, BUT HANNAH HOLDS HIM BACK!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… JJJEEEEEEESSSSEEEEEEE BBAAAAAARRRRRLLLOOOWWWWW!!!!!
James Peters: Come on, you can’t seriously call that a win can you? Not only did Hannah get involved, but Jesse low blowed him! Gavin was just now screwed out of yet another victory thanks to Jesse and Hannah! Colby couldn’t be here to help, but it looks like Jesse was just fine without him. Honestly, I can’t even congratulate that. That wasn’t fair at all, Gavin didn’t stand a chance in a situation like that, even with Damien there to help him.
Rich Russillo: I feel bad for Gavin, but in the end Jesse played the game smarter. As soon as the ref went down, he and Hannah got to work. Gavin had Damien there to help, if he had gotten involved sooner, maybe Gavin would’ve been the winner. Unfortunately he didn’t, so like Bella Braxton said, here is your winner, Jesse Barlow. Congratulations Jesse. Consuela, any words on either man tonight?
Consuela Rose Ava: Gavin seems pretty tough. I’m ready for Fighting Spirit when it comes to him. Jesse isn’t exactly my problem anymore, although I’ll be ready if he and Hannah tries to interfere in favor of Colby.
Persephone: Yeah yeah whatever we get it. To the commercial break please.
(‘The Path’ hits, and Jesse Barlow slowly makes his way back up to his feet. Jesse has his hand raised by the referee, before Hannah Marin enters the ring and raises Jesse’s arm up once again. Meanwhile, Gavin rolls out of the ring, and Damien begins talking to him, as Gavin looks absolutely furious. As Jesse and Hannah celebrate, Gavin and Consuela make eye contact, and Consuela holds up her Interwire Championship as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for pizza rolls starring Jake Smith and Alexis Chambers. They toast their little microwavable snacks, lock arms, and feed each other the delicious treats as the doctor silently fumes somewhere in private.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break as the camera fades into a nice looking medical office, slowly but surely it pans up the desk showing a nameplate on the desk which reads ‘Dr. Bethany Blue M.D’ which makes it clear who it is. The Doc is sitting at her chair staring at her computer, she is watching the latest Showdown on loop. Over and over again the kiss between Jake Smith and Alexis Chambers after their match is played, on a constant loop as she continues to just stare into the screen. Nurse Goldstein is in the background having just entered a few moments ago watching it all play out, after a bit she shakes her head and walks up to the Doctor and turns off the computer. The Doc turns her head as she shakes her head for a moment as Nurse Goldstein begins to speak)
Nurse Goldstein: Dr. Blue you need to stop torturing yourself. I knew he was using you but this is not the right way to go about it.
(After a few moments elapsed Bethany finally scrunches her face up for a moment before slowly calming down and giving a nod in response to what Nurse Goldstein had said)
Dr. Bethany Blue: You know what you’re absolutely right, I know exactly who I need to torture instead of myself and it’s absolutely perfect! Thank you! Nurse, go find me Terrence.
Nurse Goldstein: :whoa:! As much as you’d like that, Terry Chambers is your partner for Fighting Spirit, Dr. Blue against the Grand Athletes. As much as you want to do so, in order to secure a win you can’t just take your feelings out on him like that, it could jeopardize your chances in this match!
(Dr. Blue shakes her head as she turns away from Nurse Goldstein to look at her signature doctor’s coat as she quickly digs into her coat pocket as she pulls out a scalpel quickly before shouting)
Dr. Bethany Blue: LIKE IT OR NOT HE IS UNDER THE CHAMBERS NAME! THEY BLEED THE SAME BLOOD AND IT’S ONE OR THE OTHER! I WANT TERRENCE, AND I WANT HIM NOW!
Nurse Goldstein: I- … I mean, you were trying to set up some time to take him out to dinner, right? Believe me when I say that surely Terry is feeling the same way about you regarding this situation, on a much personal level.
(The Doc stops her before shaking her head quickly as she pushes herself up onto her feet and out of the chair she was situated with as Nurse Goldstein has a bit of shock on her face)
Dr. Bethany Blue: If you won’t bring me Terrence Chambers, that’s fine, absolutely, 100%. Because I will simply go find him myself and deal with this situation.
(As she says that she begins to head to the door as she storms out of the office she was situated in on the lookout for ‘The Barbaric Carnivore’. Dr. Blue absolutely tears through the hallway as she pushes through anything in her way in hopes of finding him. Before finally she stops in her tracks and slowly begins to turn her head to see Terry Chambers on his phone. He was a bit occupied but slowly he looked up from the screen to see the Doc, in the span of a few seconds his face was normality, turned to disgust, then to anger. He stared at the Doctor as she began to absolutely yell at him)
Dr. Bethany Blue: You did this! And you know exactly what you did!You caused this whole charade that happened on Showdown, it’s all because of you, it was all Terrence Chambers’ fault! Because of you that bee-itch did that… god forsaken act against MY honey bunny!
Terry Chambers: For starters haven’t I told you many times I don’t like to be called ‘Terrence’? If you think I’m pleased about this, you might as well think again. I’ve already said multiple times that I don’t approve of Alexis’ behavior as of late, she’s absolutely brainwashed and apparently she can’t seem to see that and will disagree whenever I try to interject my opinion about the situation into this. And to be honest with you here moving out of it, I am completely disgusted that any woman would want Jake Smith in the first place. :mjgrin:
(Dr. Blue has wide eyes for a moment before shrugging that last comment off as she still has a angry expression on her face as she continued to speak very loudly at Terry, Terry though seems absolutely unphased at the fury of the Doctor)
Dr. Bethany Blue: How do I know you’re not trying to trick me here Terrence! How would I know if you’re trying to turn the tables around on me for once, for god sake this might be some revenge plot that you two are brewing up behind the curtain to screw over MY Jake Smith! It’s something you Chambers would do and I won’t fall for it!
(Terry shakes his head with a chuckle as he looks down to the ground for a moment before looking up to Bethany once more and raising a slight eyebrow as he opens his mouth)
Terry Chambers: Well I see one thing hasn’t changed about you from the last time we met, and that’s the fact you still are one crazy bitch.
Dr. Bethany Blue: THAT’S IT!
Terry Chambers: :krabs:
(Dr. Bethany Blue raises the scalpel she has in her hands as she rushes forward looking to attack Terry with it. But before that even happens two figures burst into the scene as they absolutely maul down the two temporary tag partners. The camera moves up to show the faces of Limmy Monaghan, and Mark Macias who are the ones that attacked the two. They begin to absolutely stomp down on them before Limmy nods over to Mark as both of them bring Terry up to his feet, and slam him into the wall sending Terry crumbling down to the ground in pain! They then bring Dr. Bethany Blue up as both of them shake their head at the sight of the two as they lift her up, and slam her down into the ‘Disney World’ Alley Oop Facebuster into a Double Knee Gutbuster!)
(The Doc is knocked out cold as the Grand Athletes look down and admire their work after attacking the two. They look at each other and give a stern nod as they pat each other on the back and walk out of the scene. Leaving only the brutalized bodies of Terry Chambers and Dr. Bethany Blue at the scene as the camera fades out.)
(Voltage returns to ringside for the main event of the night!)
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘Scenario’ by Pop Smoke blasts through the speakers and prompts Malcolm Jones to make his appearance. He wears a v-neck referee shirt on top of his entrance attire and immediately makes his way towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… PLEASE WELCOME YOUR GUEST REFEREE…. MAAALLLLLLLLLLCOLLLLLLLLLLLMMMMMMMM JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
Rich Russillo: The “Big 092MLBOA” is in the house and he’s here to hopefully call this upcoming match fairly down the line. Malcolm has generated an interesting, yet hellacious rivalry with Charlie Marr and it has resulted in both individuals costing each other opportunities. Marr costed Jones’ match against Valentine and on the same event, Jones fulfilled revenge by screwing Charlie out of the Grand Rampage, and now we’re all gathered here tonight as Jones looks to torment Charlie Marr once again with every shred of authority power he has as the main event’s guest referee.
( As Malcolm Jones gets comfortable in the guest referee role, ‘Four Rusted Heroes’ by Marilyn Manson hits through the speakers. The cohesive unit of Komatsu Ogawa and Shawn Sturgis jerk the curtain and arrive through the entrance way. ‘The Unique Ones’ look more ambitious and concentrated than ever as they march in unison towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! At a combined weight of 441 pounds…… KOMATSU OGAWA.. SHAWN STURGIS…. THEE UUUUUUUUNNNNNNNIQQQUEEEE ONNESSSSSSS!!!!
Persephone: Oh look guys! It’s the edgy Paramore moron who got schooled by Rex McAllister a few weeks ago and his goon, PAKA! You know, I don’t really understand why Sturgis and MITSUBACHI consider themselves “The Unique Ones” of Elite Answers Wrestling when they’re a far cry from the word ‘unique’. They’re more like ‘The Stale Ones’ or ‘The Ordinary Ones’. Long story short, they’re nothing special and tonight, they’re going to get schooled by.. Uh… who are they facing again?
James Peters: They’re facing Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr.
Persephone: Wait, why are these two together? Don’t they hate each other?
James Peters: Have you not been paying attention to this show at all?
Persephone: Well, anything that doesn’t relate to Rex McAllister I can’t quite put my finger on… Did these two bury the hatchet last week?
Rich Russillo: :skip:
( ‘BxMxC’ by BABYMETAL echoes throughout the performance center and cues for Jack Ripley to arise from the guerilla position and onto the entranceway. He takes a long stare at ‘The Unique Ones’ from the stage before confidently striding down towards the squared circle. )
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! FIRST! From Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 202 pounds….THE ‘STRAIGHT SHOOTER’…. JAAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK RIIIIIPPPPPPPLEEEEYYYYYYYY!!!!!
James Peters: It’s going to be rather interesting how both Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr are going to work with one another tonight. These two have an astronomical amount of animosity established against each other and the EAW Universe can very easily predict that there’s a high possibility of this main event resulting in a double cross. However, there’s always that slim possibility of these two complying with each other’s demands and walking out of tonight with a victory over one of the EAW’s hottest tag teams. . ( “It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits to the grimace of Jack Ripley. Charlie Marr marches onto the stage with his usual daunting smirk on his face before making his way down the ramp towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER! From Tower Hamlets, England, weighing in at 240 pounds…… THEEE LIBBBBERRRRTIIIIIINNNNE… CHHHHAAARRRRLLLIIIIIEEE MAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr may be enemies as of this moment, but there are three individuals lurking in the shadows that may be detrimental to their winning chances. Our guest referee tonight, Malcolm Jones, evidently has nothing but intentions with the power in his hands tonight.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Persephone: This main event is underway! Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr are already arguing about who’s starting the match while Komatsu Ogawa stands from across the ring. Ripley gives up and steps through the ropes as Marr and Ogawa immediately start this match with a collar-and-elbow tie-up. These are the beefiest men in this match locking horns.
Rich Russillo: Ogawa transitions it into a wrist-lock that presses him down onto one knee before Marr switches around, advances with a snap mare takedown, and places him right into a traditional headlock. Smooth escape by the self-proclaimed ‘Libertine’ of Elite Answers Wrestling as Ogawa now starts to fight out of it.
James Peters: Ogawa lobbies him into the ropes, makes him rebound, and sends him rolling into the center of the ring. Marr is a bit startled by the strength of Ogawa before he sprints behind him into the ropes. Komatsu Ogawa vaults down, Marr hops over, rebounds off the ropes and leapfrogs over the incoming Ogawa! Ogawa catches him in mid-air, circles around his waist and attempts for a german suplex!
Rich Russillo: STANDING SWITCH FROM MARR! Marr exchanges positions with Ogawa, applying the waist lock as Ogawa uses his strength to run into the ropes. He holds onto the top rope and hopes Marr to roll backwards, but MARR INSTEAD DROPS DOWN, GRABS HIS FEET AND SLIDES OUT TO THE RINGSIDE.
Persephone: MARR PULLS HIM BY THE FEET UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND OGAWA GOES NECK FIRST AGAINST THE BOTTOM ROPE! HIS LARYNX WENT CRASHING INTO THE BOTTOM ROPE AS MARR MOUNTS ONTO HIS LEGS AND BEGINS WILDING ONTO HIM WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS! GROUND AND POUND FROM THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AS MALCOLM IS NOW IMMEDIATELY COUNTING TO FiVE!
Malcolm Jones: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!! FIV-
Rich Russillo: Ridiculously fast counting by our guest referee as Marr appears aggravated by it. He gathers Ogawa further into the middle of the ring and sticks a kitchen sinker knee into the midsection. The thrust knee sends Ogawa down onto both knees before Marr quickly pulls him and hooks his tights. SNAP SUPLEX!
James Peters: BUT OGAWA EXPLODES ONTO MARR WITH SOUTHPAW PUNCHES!! MARR BEING OVERWHELMED WITH PUNCHES BEFORE HE GRABS OGAWA’S WRIST AND PULLS HIM WITH A HUGE HAYMAKER!! WHAT A PUNCH AND NOW ‘THE SERPENT KING’ IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT!! MARR QUICKLY HOOKS THE ARM AND HOISTS HIM UP FOR A SUPLEX!
Persephone: OGAWA FLOATS OVER AND ESCAPES OUT OF THE SUPINE POSITION!! Marr turns around and JUST AS OGAWA WAS ABOUT TO RUN PAST HIM, HE GOT A HANDFUL OF HIS HAIR AND SLAMMED HIM BACK DOWN ONTO THE RING CANVAS on THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!!
Rich Russillo: No mercy shown by ‘The Top Shotter’ as it’s prompted for Malcolm Jones to warn Marr. Marr with an egotistical smirk as he ignores Malcolm and scoops Ogawa up! AND PLANTS HIM WITH A BODY SLAM!! MARR SHOWING HIS STRENGTH AND FLEXES HIS MUSCLES BEFORE BOOMERANGING OFF THE ROPES! AND LANDS A BIG MONEY KNEE DROP!
James Peters: OGAWA MANAGES TO CATCH HIS FLYING LEG AND MANEUVER HIM INTO A KNEEBAR! BUT CHARLIE ADJUSTS HIS BODY TO A POSITION WHERE HE CAN KICK HIS WAY OUT OF THE KNEEBAR!! CHARLIE ESCAPES AND BOTH INDIVIDUALS GET UP TO THEIR FEET! OGAWA WITH A FOREARM!! NO!! CHARLIE BLOCKS IT AND GOES FOR A SOLE KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, BUT OGAWA GRABS HIS FOOT, THROWS IT DOWN AND BLASTS HIS CHEST WITH A OPEN-HAND CHOP!! WHAT A MIGHTY CHOP FROM ‘THE SERPENT KING’ AS OGAWA RUNS INTO THE ROPES!
Persephone: NOT SO FAST!! CHARLIE GRABS ANOTHER HANDFUL OF HIS HAIR, BUT OGAWA SLAPS HIS HAND AWAY, GRABS HIM BY THE SIDE, TRIPS HIM ONTO HIS BUTT AND NAILS HIM WITH A GAME-CHANGING DROPKICK!! CHARLIE IS OUT AS OGAWA CRAWLS OVER FOR THE SIDEPRESS COVER!
Malcolm Jones: OOOOOOONNNNNNEE!!! T-
Rich Russillo: KICK-OUT!! Ogawa immediately places Marr into a grounded headlock. This has been a highly-contested bout so far in the inception of this match as Marr is starting to show some fight. Charlie forces him into the corner and waits for the referee to count, but Malcolm is doing jack shit! Ogawa still has the headlock in as Marr yells at Malcolm to count him!
James Peters: Malcolm Jones is silent as it forces MARR TO GRAB OGAWA BY THE WAIST, CARRY HIM AND DRIVE HIM INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH A MOMENTOUS PENDULUM BACKBREAKER!!! ‘The Libertine’ taking matters in his own hands as he gets up to his feet. He is partially apoplectic as he now hoists him up! FOR A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Malcolm Jones: ….
Persephone: Malcolm Jones is electing not to count this pin attempt! Smoke is steaming from Marr’s bald head as he faces Jones. Marr knows what game Malcolm is playing but he needs to stay on track! This is the drama that I crave! UH-OH! WATCH YOUR BACK MARR!! OGAWA SPROUTS FROM THE GROUND AND ROLLS JONES UP WITH A SCHOOL-BOY COVER!!
Malcolm Jones: ONE! TWO!! THRE-
Rich Russillo: THAT WAS ALMOST IT!! JONES COUNTING INCREDIBLY FAST AS MARR ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET AND LOOKS AT HIM IN ANGER BEFORE SIDESTEPPING OGAWA. OGAWA STOPPED HIMSELF HALF-WAY THROUGH AND SCOOPS MARR UP WITH A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! MARR IS ABLE TO ESCAPE AND PUSHES HIM INTO THE ROPES.
James Peters: OGAWA RICOCHETS BACK IN! MARR CIRCLES AROUND THE WAIST AND ATTEMPTS A GERMAN SUPLEX! OGAWA SLAPS HIS WRISTS AWAY AND CLOCKS ‘THE LIBERTINE’ WITH A VICIOUS ELBOW. CHARLIE MARR ON WOBBLY LEGS WHILE OGAWA COMES OFF THE ROPES!! MARR POPS HIM UP INTO THE AIR AND GOES FOR A FALLING POWERBOMB!! BUT OGAWA ESCAPES, LANDS ONTO HIS FEET, AND HOISTS HIM UP FOR ANOTHER FIREMAN’S CARRY!! AND DROPS HIS HEAD ONTO HIS KNEE WITH AN USHIGOROSHI!! USHIGOROSHI NECKBREAKER CONNECTS AS OGAWA DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER!!
Persephone: Ogawa immediately pulled the stunned Charlie Marr into his corner of the ring to tag in Shawn Sturgis for the first time in this match! Ogawa remains in the ring as both individuals hold Marr up in the air with a front facelock! AND THEY BOTH SPIKE CHARLIE MARR ONTO HIS HEAD WITH A DOUBLE LIFTING DDT!! THERE’S THE TANDEM DUO OFFENCE FROM THE UNIQUE ONES AS STURGIS GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Malcolm Jones: ONE!! TWO!!
Rich Russillo: KICK-OUT! Even though Malcolm Jones has been counting way too fast for the preference of Charlie Marr, Marr has been able to get his shoulder up and we’ve got to give him that. Sturgis quickly gathers him into his feet, lifts him up into a suplex and USES THE ROPE TO SLINGSHOT HIM RIGHT INTO A SUPLEX! SLINGSHOT SUPLEX FROM ‘THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR’ AS HE CRAWLS OVER FOR THE BACKPRESS COVER!!
Malcolm Jones: ONE!! TWO!! THRE-
Persephone: MARR GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! STURGIS GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER ATTEMPT!
Malcolm Jones: ONE!! TWO!! THRE-
Rich Russillo: MARR KICKS-OUT AGAIN! I believe Shawn Sturgis is trying to take advantage of Malcolm Jones’ counting speed but it isn’t working. Sturgis pulls him up to his feet and nails him with a spinning heel kick to the midsection that reels him into the corner. ‘The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air’ is on the move as he rebounds off the opposite corner and returns back to Marr! HE SPRINGS UP INTO THE AIR AND GOES FOR THE CORNER BACK ELBOW SMASH!
James Peters: MARR JUMPS OUT OF HARM’S WAY AND STURGIS GOES FLYING OVER THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! STURGIS DROPPING HARD ONTO THE FLOOR AS MARR GETS THIS MATCH BACK INTO HIS CONTROL. JACK RIPLEY HAS NO INTENT OF GETTING INTO THIS MATCH AS MARR TELLS HIM TO WATCH!! HE RUNS THE ROPES!! ARE WE GOING TO SEE CHARLIE MARR FLY?!?!
Persephone: BUT LOOK!! Malcolm Jones steps in his way and checks on Shawn Sturgis! MARR STOPS HIMSELF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! RIGHT AS JONES TURNS AROUND, MARR IMMEDIATELY SLIDES OUT OF THE RING TO SNATCH STURGIS!! BUT STURGIS JUMPS UP AND SENDS HIM COLLIDING INTO THE STEEL STEPS BACK FIRST WITH A POWERFUL SHOTGUN DROPKICK!! WHAT A DROPKICK AS STURGIS NOW GETS HIM INTO THE RING!!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS IS PERCHED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WHILE OGAWA HOISTS CHARLIE MARR INTO A POWERBOMB!! STURGIS SOARS AND DRILLS MARR WITH A DOUBLE-KNEE BACKSTABBER!!! THE POWERBOMB BACKSTABBER COMBO AS OGAWA FLIPS MARR OVER AND DEADLIFTS HIM UP INTO A SUPLEX!! AND DROPS HIM INTO A FALCON ARROW!! STURGIS PERHAPS STEALING A MOVE OUT OF DRAKE KING’S ARSENAL AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Malcolm Jones: ONE!! TWO!! THREE-
James Peters: KICK-OUT! Marr is able to power out before three as ‘The Unique Ones’ are beginning to signs of frustration. Ogawa momentarily brainstorms with his tag team partner before grabbing Marr by his arm and IRISH WHIPPING HIM INTO THE OTHER CORNER!! MARR GOES CRASHING INTO THE TURNBUCKLE AS OGAWA YELLS AT RIPLEY TO TAG!
Rich Russillo: Jack Ripley tags himself in! ‘Rip Daddy’ floats over the ropes and into the ring as Ripley now has put himself into the fold. It seems that Ripley doesn’t want Ogawa as he points towards Sturgis. Ripley remembers how much of a fight ‘The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air” gave him on his return to Elite Answers Wrestling and he wants a piece of him for the second time.
Persephone: UGH!! I hated that match! Why is it happening again!?!?
James Peters: Both Sturgis and Ripley meet in the center of the ring and eye each other before locking in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Ripley transitions it into a wrist lock, twists around, slaps his wrist down, shoots down and back up with a kip-up, and GOES FOR A FOREARM! BUT STURGIS SAW IT COMING AS HE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A HEADLOCK. Ripley grabs his head with his legs in grounded head scissors, but STURGIS IS QUICK TO ESCAPE WITH A HEADSPRING ESCAPE!
Rich Russillo: Ripley gets back up to his feet as Sturgis sprints past him, shoots off the canvas, AND GOES FOR A HURRICANRANA! RIPLEY HOLDS ONTO THE STURGIS!! THE ‘STRAIGHT SHOOTER’ UTILIZING HIS STRENGTH AS HE HOISTS HIM UP! BUT STURGIS COUNTERS AND LOOKS TO FLIP HIM OVER!
Persephone: BUT RIPLEY HOLDS ONTO HIM ONCE AGAIN!! RIPLEY SWINGS FORWARD!! STURGIS USES TO MOMENTUM TO SLIDE OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND FLIP OVER! HE LANDS ONTO HIS FEET!! RIPLEY LOOKS CONFUSED AS HE SWORE HE GOT SLAMMED HIM DOWN BEFORE STURGIS LIGHTS HIM UP WITH THREE OPEN-HAND CHOPS!! STURGIS GETS A FOURTH CHOP BEFORE SPINNING AROUND FOR A DISCU-
James Peters: RIPLEY DUCKS HIS FOREARM, COMES OFF THE ROPES AND DECKS ‘THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR’ WITH A SENSATIONAL HURRICANRANA!! STURGIS FALTERS INTO THE CORNER AS RIPLEY IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS BEHIND AND SQUASHES HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH A CORNER FOREARM SMASH!
Rich Russillo: Sturgis is staggered against the corner while Ripley turns around and sprints back into the opposite corner! STURGIS SPEEDS FROM BEHIND AND JUMPS UP FOR A CORNER BACK ELBOW! BUT RIPLEY CAUGHT HIM!! RIPLEY HAS HIM UP IN THE AIR AND HAS HIM ON SHOULDERS!! HE POINTS HIM TOWARDS THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND SIGNALS FOR A LAWN DART!! BUT STURGIS TILTS AROUND AND DRILLS HIS HEAD INTO THE CANVAS WITH A TORNADO DDT!! STURGIS QUICKLY HOVERS OVER FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!!
Malcolm Jones: ONNNNNNEEE!! TWOOOOOO!!!!!
Persephone: GOTHMAN KICKS OUT! Sturgis quickly gets up to his feet and impatiently waits for Ripley! These two clearly have learned a lot of things from each other from the last horrible match they had. STURGIS JUMPS UP FOR THE SEVEN!! RIPLEY DUCKS THE SUNSET SIT-OUT POWERBOMB ATTEMPT!
James Peters: RIPLEY CLOCKS STURGIS CLEAN WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! RIPLEY PROCEEDS TO REBOUND OFF THE CORNER AND ADVANCE TOWARDS STURGIS FOR THE KNEE!! DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!! STURGIS INTERCEPTS IN THE MIDDLE WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK OF HIS OWN!! A ROUNDHOUSE KICK STRAIGHT TO THE EAR AS RIPLEY IS IN LA LA LAND!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS SPINS AROUND AND LOOKS FOR THE DISCUS ELBOW HE TRIED FROM EARLIER! BUT RIPLEY SHOOTS UP AND CATCHES HIM WITH A STEP-UP ENZIGURI!! RIPLEY WIPED HIM OUT WITH THAT ENZIGURI AS HE GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET!! STURGIS REBOUNDS BACK INTO HIM AND JUMPS FOR A YAKUZA KICK!! RIPLEY SIDE STEPS IT AND LANDS A YAKUZA KICK OF HIS OWN TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!! STURGIS NOW REBOUNDS FORWARD INTO THE SECOND ROPE AND RIPLEY CAPS IT OFF WITH A SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL!! THIS COULD BE IT!
Malcolm Jones: ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRR-
James Peters: STURGIS GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! Sturgis now grabs a hold of Ripley and presses him against the corner turnbuckles. He blasts him with an open-hand chop before grabbing his arm and Irish whipping THE ‘RIP DADDY’ INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER!! BUT RIPLEY EXCHANGES DIRECTIONS AND STURGIS GOES INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER!! RIPLEY CHARGES INTO HIM!!
Persephone: BUT GOTHMAN GETS HIS FEET UP!! STURGIS SITS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WHILE RIPLEY GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AFTER THE COUNTER-KICK!! STURGIS LOOKING FOR AN AERIAL MANEUVER, BUT RIPLEY SHOOTS TO THE SIDE AND DECKS HIM WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED KICK! OGAWA ATTEMPTS TO DISTRACT RIPLEY, BUT OGAWA EATS A ROPE-ASSISTED KICK TO THE FACE!!
Rich Russillo: Komatsu Ogawa tried to stick his nose into his business and he paid for it! Ripley fixates his attention back onto Sturgis and stands on the top turnbuckle. The ‘Rip Daddy’ is looking for a super variation of some sort but LOOK! STURGIS IS FIGHTING! HE’S USING HIS HEIGHT DIFFERENTIAL ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE TO HIS ADVANTAGE!! HE STUNS RIPLEY WITH DOWNWARD ELBOWS BEFORE JUMPING OVER!! AND DRILLING HIM WITH A SUPER SEVEN!! A SUPER SUNSET FLIP SIT-OUT POWERBOMB CONNECTS AS MALCOLM JONES SLIDES OVER TO COUNT!!
Malcolm Jones: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THRRRRRRR-
James Peters: KICK-OUT!! RIPLEY GETS HIS SHOULDER AS HE ROLLS OVER TO THE CORNER!! Shawn Sturgis is taunting Jack Ripley from the opposite corner as Charlie Marr has jumped back onto the apron. Ripley has no intentions of tagging out of the match, but MARR INSISTS ON THE OPPOSITE!
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr has tagged himself into this tag team match and Jack Ripley is clearly pissed off by that! Ripley wanted to get more fight out of Shawn Sturgis, but Marr tagged himself in! Both rivaled enemies stare into each other’s eyes WHILE STURGIS COMES FROM BELOW!! HE TAKES MARR DOWN WITH A SCHOOL-BOY, QUICKLY KIPS-UP, AND DUCKS MARR’S CLOTHESLINE!!
Persephone: STURGIS HAS EVADED BOTH MARR AND RIPLEY AS HE NOW JUMPS UP THE TURNBUCKLES AND BACKFLIPS OFF!! SOARING MOONSAULT!! NO!! CHARLIE MARR AND JACK RIPLEY CATCH HIM IN MID AIR AND CARRY HIM INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! THEY FLIP STURGIS OVER!! BUT STURGIS SNATCHES BOTH OF THEIR HEAD AND CONNECTS WITH TWO STUNNERS SIMULTANEOUSLY AT THE SAME TIME!! DOUBLE STUNNER AS STURGIS NOW QUICKLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP TROPE!
James Peters: STURGIS IS LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH EARLIER WHILE MARR IS LAID OUT OF THE RING!! RIPLEY ROLLED OUT IN RESULT OF THE STUNNER AS STURGIS SOARS OFF! LOOK NO HANDS!!!!! AND MARR CATCHES THE REVERSE-FACING SENTON WITH A REAR-NAKED CHOKE HOLD!! WHAT IMPECCABLE TIMING FROM ‘THE LIBERTINE’ AS HE HAS ‘THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR’ FULLY CINCHED WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE TRANQUILITY CHOKE HOlD!! WHAT A COUNTER!
Komatsu Ogawa (off-mic): HEY!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK!! KOMATSU OGAWA IS HOLDING UP THE REFERE!! STURGIS IS ON THE VERGE OF REACHING HIS BREAKING POINT AS OGAWA DISTRACTS MALCOLM JONES!! Charlie Marr is clueless on the distraction created by the other half of ‘The Unique Ones’ while Shawn Sturgis seems to be fading! We may see a submission finish in this match! RIPLEY STEPS INTO THE RING AND RUNS THE ROPES!! OGAWA IS ON THE APRON ARGUING WITH MALCOLM JONES!!!
Malcolm Jones (off-mic) : Shut the fuck up, damn!
Komatsu Ogawa (off-mic): NO!! I REFU-
Persephone: RIPLEY JUMPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SNATCHES OGAWA’S HEAD!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH A TORNADO DDT OFF THE APRON AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!
James Peters: Jack Ripley just sacrificed himself, but I don’t think it matters anymore as Marr relinquishes the rear naked choke hold! Marr is screaming at the subconscious Jack Ripley as I think he believes Ripley was the individual who distracted the referee! Marr is livid as he turns around and shifts his attention back onto Sturgis. STURGIS JUMPS UP FOR THE STUNNER!! BUT MARR SHRUGS HIM AWAY AND SENDS HIM INTO THE ROPES!!
Rich Russillo: KOMATSU OGAWA TAGGED HIMSELF IN!!! MARR IS CLUELESS AS HE NOW HURDLES SHAWN STURGIS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE APRON! Marr attempts to explode him off the apron, but Sturgis successfully blocks it and stuns Big Match Marr with a point-blank forearm. Marr still has no idea that Sturgis is illegal while Ogawa assaults Ripley from ringside!
Persephone: GOTHMAN NOW SPRINGS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND USES IT TO LAUNCH FORWARD INTO MARR!! SPRINGBOOOOARRRRRRRRRRRD-
James Peters: MARR KICKS THE MIDSECTION IN MID-AIR AND CONNECTS WITH THE QUEEN IS DEAD! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT CONNECTS!! HE DRILLED STURGIS CLEAN ONTO THE CANVAS AS HE NOW ROLLS OVER FOR THE COVER!! BUT STURGIS ISN’T LEGAL!!
Rich Russillo: SHAWN STURGIS ISN’T THE MAN TO PIN!! Malcolm Jones now has a valid reason to not count as Marr is beside himself. While Jones have been playing him throughout the entirety of this match, Marr believes that this is part of his mind-games.
Charlie Marr (off-mic): FUCKING COUNT! YOU SUDDENLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO COUNT YOUR NUMBERS?!??!
Malcolm Jones (off-mic): STURGIS ISN’T LEGAL, YOU FUCKIN’ BOZO.
Charlie Marr (off-mic): BULLSHIT!
Persephone: Marr and Jones exchanging words before Charlie turns around and pulls Sturgis up to his feet…. STUNNNNNERRRR!!!! THE STUNNER CONNECTS FROM THE ILLEGAL STURGIS AND THAT SENDS CHARLIE FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!
Rich Russillo: Shawn Sturgis is moving possessed as he RUNS THE ROPES!! HE ISN’T GOING FOR MARR! OGAWA HAS THE DEFENCELESS JACK RIPLEY UP IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION AT RINGSIDE!! STURGIS SOARS THROUGH THE ROPES!! AND MURDERS ‘THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER’ WITH A SUICIDE DIVE ELECTRIC CHAIR COMBINATION!! OH MY GOD!! JACK RIPLEY IS OUT!! GET HIM INTO THE RING AND PIN HIM!!
James Peters: BOTH MEN AREN’T GOING FOR THE IMMEDIATE COVER AS THEY BOTH SCRAMBLE TO GET THEIR SHIT BACK TOGETHER RINGSIDE AFTER DEVASTATING ‘THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER’ JACK RIPLEY!! CHARLIE MARR IS INSIDE THE RING AND BOTH INDIVIDUALS ARE CLUELESS!! MARR RUNS THE ROPES AND VAULTS OVER THE TOP ROPE!! COOOOORRRKKKKSCREWWWW PLAANNNNCHAAA!!
Rich Russillo: A CORKSCREW PLANCHA THAT WIPES OUT BOTH MEMBERS OF ‘THE UNIQUE ONES’. MARR NOW NEEDS TO GET OGAWA INTO THE RING FOR THE COV- BUT HE INSTEAD INSERTS ‘THE FRESH PRINCE OF-MID-AIR’ INSTEAD?!?!
Persephone: WHAT AN IDIOT!! Marr still believes that the gothman is the legal competitor as now revs up the engine! He has Shawn Sturgis in his crosshairs! HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND SPINS AROUND!! THE CHARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRINGGGGGGGGGGGGGG CROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!
James Peters: MASSSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAKARRRRRIIIII!!! KOMATSU OGAWA OUT OF NOWHERE DEVASTATES CHARLIE MARR WITH HIS PATENTED RUNNING LARIAT AS ‘THE UNIQUE ONES’ NOW ARE IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF THIS MAIN EVENT!!
Rich Russillo: THEY ARE INDEED! THE LEGAL OGAWA SCOOPS THE SUBCONSCIOUS MARR ONTO HIS BACK WHILE SHAWN STURGIS IS MOUNTED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! STURGIS SOMERSAULTS OVER!!! CULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL THEEEEEEEEEEEEE WEAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: THE SOMERSAULT CUTTER GORY BOMB COMBINATION CONNECTS AS KOMATSU OGAWA DIGS THROUGH THE CANVAS FOR THE COVER!! LEGS ARE HOOKED FOR THE WIN!!
Malcolm Jones (off-mic): Finally, I can get this done and over with.
( Malcolm nonchalantly gets onto his knees and warms his hands before he counts at the speed of light. )
Malcolm Jones: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Persephone: WHAT!! JACK RIPLEY PULLED MALCOLM JONES OUT OF THE SQUARED CIRCLE RIGHT BEFORE HE COULD GET THE THIRD SLAM ON THE MAT!! MALCOLM PURPOSEFULLY MADE THAT COUNT FAST BUT RIPLEY MADE SURE THAT THIS MAIN EVENT WOULDN’T BE TARNISHED EVEN MORE! Even though it’s kind of boring..
James Peters: Malcolm Jones is now legitimately aggravated as he yells at Ripley! ‘The Unique Ones’ almost had it in the bag right there! AND I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE EXTRA MEASURES AS STURGIS RUNS THE ROPES AND SOARS BETWEEN THE ROPES!! TOPPPPPPPPEEEE SUIIIIIIICIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
RIch Russillo: RIPLEY SHOVES JONES OUT OF THE WAY AND CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK IN MID-AIR!! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO CONNECTS ON SHAWN STURGIS IN MID-AIR AND STURGIS OUT FOR GOOD!!
Persephone: OGAWA IS SHOCKED AS HE TURNS AROUND!! THE QUEEN IS DEAD!! NO!! STURGIS ESCAPES THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT ATTEMPT AND CLUTCHES HIS WRIST. THE OBSIDIAN FLAME!! NO!! MARR EVADES THE FISHERMAN DRIVER!! BOTH INDIVIDUALS NOW RUN INTO THE ROPES AT THE SAME TIME!
( Jack Ripley lightly tags Marr while he rebounded against the ropes ) James Peters: ‘THE SERPENT KING’ FASTLY ADVANCES STRAIGHT FORWARD WHILE ‘THE LIBERTINE’ TWISTS FORWARD!!! MARR AND OGAWA COLLIDE INTO EACH OTHER WITH THEIR FINISHERS AND NOW EVERYONE IN THIS MATCH ARE LAID OUT!
Rich Russillo: LOOK!! IN THE CORNER OF OUR EYE THERE IS JACK RIPLEY!! WHAT IS RIPLEY DOING!?!? RIPLEY IS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WHILE OGAWA IS OUT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! HE SOARS OFF!!! BEEEEEEEEEEELIIEEEEEEEEEEEEVE ITTTTT ORRRRRR NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS LANDS ACROSS OGAWA AS HE NOW HOOKS THE LEG!!
Malcolm Jones: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘BxMxC’ by BABYMETAL blasts through the speakers as Jack Ripley gingerly uses the ropes to get up to his feet. Malcolm Jones grabs his hand to raise him as the victor, but Ripley immediately smacks it away and looks at him in disappointment. He raises his fists by himself while Marr is recovering from the clothesline collision before he slides beneath the bottom rope and continues celebrating up the entranceway. )
Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS!! THE TEAM OF CHARLIE MARR.. AND JACK RIPLEY!!!!
James Peters: What an action-packed main event we just saw! The unlikely duo of Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr manage to capture a victory over ‘The Unique Ones’ in a highly-contested battle between both teams. Even though Malcolm Jones had given Ripley and Marr a hard time the entire match, that didn’t stop them from securing the bag a week before Fighting Spirit, and my hats go off towards both the individuals.
Rich Russillo: If Ripley hadn’t silently tagged himself into the match, perhaps, ‘The Unique Ones’ would have prevailed and continued to cement themselves as the true elite duo in all of Elite Answers Wrestling. Let’s talk about ‘The Unique Ones’ for a short second. Komatsu Ogawa and Shawn Sturgis have proven to be a formidable force in the tag team division and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were tag team champion-
Persephone: EXCUSE ME? You think these two untalented, fruitless dicksuckers are even on the level of Team Rex McAllister? ‘The Stale Ones’ are nothing compared to Rexy and they will never get a taste of McAllister’s EAW Unified Tag Team Championship and you can take that promise to the bank!
James Peters: Well we can dispute all the facts and opinions all we want, what is undisputed, is that Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr walk out with what people thought wasn’t possible, and that is a victory as a tag team.
( Jack Ripley had his way backstage while Malcolm Jones and the exhausted Charlie Marr lock eyes to close the show. The camera gives a final shot of Charlie Marr making his way up the ramp while staring at Malcolm Jones, who is inside in the ring. It captures the angered emotion on Marr’s face while Jones possesses an unruffled smirk on his face. )
