(EAW intro plays.)
(A highlight video of last week’s episode begins to play. Thankfully there are no technical malfunctions this week. We see Sarah Price talking about her Specialists Championship win at Gateway to Glory, only to be attacked and beatdown by a returning Constance Blevins! Seth Osiris would pick up his first win on Voltage, while ‘Prince Wealthy’ Maxwell would declare himself for the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain for Pride! SKA would win a Dynasty Showcase match over Beau Cassidy and Lisa Wren. During the contract signing for the EAW World Championship at Fighting Spirit, Kassidy Heart would come out on behalf of her husband, Mr. DEDEDE. Andrea Valentine would end up striking Kassidy in the face, but would be attacked from behind by Mr. DEDEDE. He would smash the Answers World Championship into the back of Andrea’s skull, and then the couple would put Andrea through the table with a 3D, and leave with her championship!)
(RECAP CONTINUES: The talented rookie, SEBAS, would pick up a win over The Woogieman. Meanwhile, at Gateway to Glory, another championship match had been decided. Andre Walker would win contendership for the New Breed Championship and the champion, Jalyn Garcia, would talk about that with Molly Waters. He would obviously brush off any challenge that Andre could present to him, but to Jalyn’s surprise, Andre would show up. There would be a little exchange between the two, before Jalyn would walk off. The match action continued with Colby Sol defeating Cepheus St. Claire. The win would come thanks to interference from Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin, but Colby would pay for it because Cepheus would violently attack him. Another participant would be added to the women’s No Way Out match at Fighting Spirit. Ms. Extreme would try her luck again by going to Captain Charisma, who would agree she deserved a chance to compete for a Universal Women’s Championship shot.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: The Interwire Champion, Consuela Rose Ava, would join the commentary booth for the match between Gavin McArdle and Jesse Barlow. As usual, Jesse and Hannah would be up to their old tricks and ultimately fuckery would cost Gavin the win. Dr. Bethany Blue’s mental state would continue to deteriorate, to the point where she would try to stab her Fighting Spirit partner, Terry Chambers, with a scalpel. Their arguing would leave them open to an attack and The Grand Athletes would take them down. Limmy Monaghan and Mark Macias would drop the two former champions and get themselves some momentum heading into Fighting Spirit! The main event had Malcolm Jones serving as the special guest referee for the tag team match featuring Charlie Marr and Jack Ripley teaming up against The Unique Ones. Ultimately, Charlie and Jack would get the win but it would not be without controversy and fuckery!)
(The highlight video fades out and cuts to the ringside area. James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone Tsitsipas are standing behind the broadcast booth. James and Rich wear T-shirts reminding everyone that May is Mental Health Awareness month and they feature a photo of Dr. Bethany Blue. Persephone is dressed in a cute, fitted black dress that hugs all her curves.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen we are less than a week away from our final Voltage exclusive free-per-view of the season, Fighting Spirit: Omaha! We have a hell of a line-up for the show, and honestly, I’m excited.
Rich Russillo: It’s the most incredible time to be an Elitist. The road to Pain for Pride is underway and after Fighting Spirit is in the books, we will know who will be defending the EAW World Championship against Rex McAllister! At the moment, Mr. DEDEDE is still in possession of Andrea Valentine’s championship belt, and there’s no doubt she will have a few choice words for him tonight.
Persephone: Unfortunately we are kicking off the show with Andrea too, so I guess we just need to go ahead and get that over with because you know it’s going to be boring.
James Peters: Well, I was going to talk about her show tonight…
Persephone: No one really cares. Rexy is in action later and that’s the only match that anyone wants to see.
Rich Russillo: I will protect you if Raven tries to come at you again.
(Persephone reaches down and retrieves a small blade from her ankle bootie. Rich and James blink.)
Persephone: I came prepared.
Rich Russillo: O.
James Peters: I see that…
(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to blast across the PA system. The voice of Bella Braxton fills the building.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome the EAW World Champion… ANDREA VALENTINE!
(Andrea walks onto the stage dressed in her gear, with a Beating Hearts of Voltage hoodie thrown over the top. She does not have her championships due to the actions of Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy Heart, but like always, Andrea’s smile literally brightens up the entire building.)
Rich Russillo: I’ve become so used to seeing Andrea with the EAW World Championship, it’s almost strange to see her without it. She’s been an incredible champion since taking that belt back at Road to Redemption inside of the Extreme Elimination Chamber.
James Peters: It’s been a hell of a ride for Andrea this season and only one obstacle stands in her way when it comes to headlining Pain for Pride as the EAW World Champion.
Persephone: An old, gross wrinkly obstacle.
James Peters: :whoa: I wouldn’t talk about Mr. DEDEDE like that…
Persephone: I don’t give a damn about Mr. DEDEDE! If he is a potential opponent for Sexy Rexy, he can get fucked just like Andrea.
Rich Russillo: Mr. DEDEDE, if you’re watching, Sephy did not mean that :lupe:
(Andrea is in the ring now and she’s been given the microphone. A few seconds later, her music fades out and that friendly smile on her face turns into one of pure sarcasm.)
Andrea Valentine: Imagine being the EAW Champion but having no belt to carry around. Could never be me.
(Andrea purses her lips.)
Andrea Valentine: Oh wait! It totally is! Thanks to the actions of a cannibal and a coward, the belt that I rightfully won back in December was taken from me and now we’re all really seeing Mr. DEDEDE carry it around like he’s actually the champion. This whole ‘People’s Champion’ thing he’s got going on is really the biggest load of bullshit that I have ever seen in my life, and when you think of everything that’s ever gone down in this company, that’s really saying a lot. I’m not immune to the comments everyone seems to be making about my title reign and how my matches have gone down, but absolutely none of that has any bearing on me as a competitor, and more importantly, me as a fighting champion. I’m well aware that things won’t always go my way or how I picture them in my head, and I refuse to ever be the person who dwells on that kind of thing. What matters to me is that I am the rightful EAW World Champion. I don’t need a physical championship to prove that I’m the realest champion in this company.
Andrea Valentine: I am one win away from getting a chance to compete at another Pain for Pride, and this time, it’ll be as a world champion. So many people cower in fear over the prospect of facing Mr. DEDEDE, but to hell with that. Mr. DEDEDE has struggled against the likes of TNT, and lost to Shaker Jones, no offense to any of them of course, and this whole season he’s proven that’s not exactly the oh-so-scary monster everyone really wants to think he is inside the ring. He’s a cheater, with Kassidy right there at his side to do what she does best and that’s hold someone’s hand and help them along in their journey. I don’t have the luxury of having a Gawd Contract, so I know I won’t be able to ban her from ringside or whatever. But I am walking into Omaha, fully expecting to take on them both in some capacity. It’s not like I haven’t overcome the odds before. There have been plenty of times where I’ve found myself in a situation where I have to think outside of the box. I know that I’m capable of winning next weekend at Fighting Spirit and getting myself into my first ever Pain for Pride main event, and knowing who’s waiting for me makes it all the much sweeter.
Andrea Valentine: I don’t ever want to be the person who gets too ahead of herself, but I like my chances to defend the EAW World Championship successfully next weekend. And when I do have the actual belt in my hands again, I can’t wait to walk down the ramp at Pain for Pride and square off against one of the best in the business in Rex McAllister. A few weeks ago, I got the better of him in a match between the two of us. I know he probably hasn’t forgotten that, and I’m sure it’ll be on his mind should we cross paths tonight. It’s pretty inevitable that we will because all four of us are highly competitive people. Camille and Raven will have their own thing going on, seeing as how both of them are opponents next weekend with a shot at the Universal Women’s Championship on the line. And of course, I’m sure Rex is going to want to get one up on me and even the score as we head towards a potential Pain for Pride collision. There’s a lot at stake for me these two weeks and I have never been more prepared. It’s been a dream season for me, and I don’t plan on waking up from it. Fighting Spirit will be the title defense I need to shut up everyone who wants to talk down my reign and make the bold declaration that I’m not deserving of being the champion. Tonight will just be another opportunity to prove that I’m capable of getting the better of Rex McAllister.
(Andrea’s voice is full of confidence as she lowers the microphone. Anyone who’s followed her career knows just how far she’s come over the last two years or so. It doesn’t really matter what the critics want to say, because they will always find something to talk about, and Andrea has more than proven she’s one of the best in EAW today. “Roll With Me” begins to play once again as the champion takes her leave.)
Persephone: She really did not just say she was going to get the better of Sexy Rexy again, did she?! I will cut a bitch with my blade and not even think twice about it.
James Peters: .
Rich Russillo: Yeah, so while James gets security on the phone to come confiscate the blade, I’m going to remind everyone that Fighting Spirit: Omaha will be live next weekend! See all of the Voltage Elitists in action on free-per-view as the road to Pain for Pride makes its final stop! We have an amazing show planned tonight, everyone! So stick around and we’ll be right back!
(Andrea disappears behind the curtains right as security heads out to come get the blade from Persephone.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Dr. Pepper featuring Dr. Bethany Blue! Not that she would ever drink the sugary, disgusting soda obviously… )
(Voltage cuts back from a commercial as the six competitors of the Tri Brand Six Pack Challenge are inside the squared circle, ready for the match to get started)
James Peters: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage! In this action packed match we are going to witness some interesting debuts, a returning former champion and most importantly, which one of these “new” faces has what it takes to emerge victorious and make a name for himself in this Tri Brand Six Pack Challenge.
Rich Russillo: This is not just about brand dominance, this is all about proving that they belong here in EAW. And I cannot wait to see how this match goes! I’m excited!
Persephone *puts her sunglasses on* : Guys, just wake me up when this torture is over alright?
(DING DING DING)
James Peters: And here we go! Hell has just been let loose as the six competitors are squaring off inside the ring. Remember, only one of them is going to survive! The others are going to have to be eliminated, either via pinfall or submission. The action is already all over the place, I’m struggling to even call this one! Ashley Voohres is hammering Jon Kelton in the corner and he doesn’t seem to be able to fight back against his enormous opponent! Meanwhile in the opposite corner, RYNX is suffering the same fate, this time by the hand of Alex Blade! Wait a minute! It looks like Raylan Brees and Cameron Clark are taking this to the outside!!! CHAOS EVERYWHERE!
Rich Russillo: Raylan Brees has just thrown Cameron Clark to the outside, but remember this is not a Battle Royale! Here you have to be pinned or submitted to get eliminated. Raylan Brees is charging in… SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE! Just like that, the “Alpha Assassin” is cleaning house early on! Meanwhile inside the ring, Ashley Voohres is still in control of Jon Kelton… a strong Irish Whip sends him against the ropes, he bounces off…. He goes for a knee strike, but he misses! Jon Kelton is one step ahead and he just reversed the knee lift into a Twist of Fate of his own! Ashley Voohres collapses on the mat… WAIT A MINUTE! ALEX BLADE WITH A BRUTAL HOOK KICK FROM BEHIND! HE HIT HIM RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
James Peters: Alex Blade looks down on Ashley Voohres, apparently proud of the destruction he has just caused… GERMAN SUPLEX BY RYNX! ALEX BLADE GETS CAUGHT BY SURPRISE BY A NASTY GERMAN SUPLEX AND NOW RYNX IS THE ONLY MAN STANDING!
Rich Russillo: Don’t speak too soon… Raylan Brees is right back inside the ring and he has just flattened RYNX with a nasty bulldog from behind! But he is not done yet. Raylan is stalking RYNX as he is getting back to his feet, The Alpha Assassin now pushes RYNX to the corner, nowhere for him to go now! Raylan charges in… STINGER SPLASH! RYNX IS OUT OF IT… KICK TO THE GUT, RAYLAN PICKS HIM UP FOR A POWERBOMB… AAAAAND YES! HE GOT HIM, RAYLAN BREES JUST SLAMMED RYNX TO THE MAT WITH A POWERBOMB BUT HE IS NOT DONE JUST YET! RAYLAN BREES QUICKLY TRANSITIONS INTO A BOSTON CRAB, HE CALLS THIS COMBINATION THE CUTTHROAT COMBO! IS RYNX GOING TO TAP OUT!?
James Peters: I don’t see how RYNX can get out of this predicament… wait, nevermind, I’ve spoken too soon! Cameron Clark is back from the outside and he is looking for some revenge on Raylan! SUPERKICK! It’s lights out for Raylan, he did not see that one coming! Cameron Clark can’t even follow up on that one as he is immediately tackled by Ashley Voohres who has recovered from the hit he took earlier in the match! Ashley Voohres with a firm grip on Cameron’s neck, he doesn’t want to let him go! What does he have in mind? Ashley gets Cameron back to his feet…. CHOKESLAM! ASHLEY VOOHRES JUST HIT CAMERON WITH WHAT HE CALLS THANATOPHOBIA! CAMERON CLARK MIGHT BE DOWN AND OUT… ASHLEY GOES FOR THE PIN… NOPE! I SPOKE TOO SOON YET AGAIN!
Persephone: Can you guys be more quiet? I am trying to sleep here.
Rich Russillo: Jon Kelton is back! He just took out Ashley Voohres with a stiff shot to the back of his head. Now Kelton is stalking RYNX who is still out of it… RYNX stumbles back to his feet. OOOF! Kick to the gutt by Jon Kelton who is now locking RYNX’s arms behind his back… DDT! HE CALLS IT THE EGO TRIP! RYNX IS OUT… I THINK THIS MIGHT BE IT FOR HIM! THIS TIME JON KELTON GOES FOR THE COVER…
Bella Braxton: RYNX has been eliminated!
Persephone: Hi, I’m back. What did I miss?!
Rich Russillo: Jon Kelton is back with a vengeance! He just knocked out RYNX with an impressive DDT. He said earlier this week that he was going to make sure his colleagues were going to respect him and I guess the message was sent loud and clear! I lost track of things for a moment, Alex Blade and Cameron Clark are going at it in the corner! SPINNING BACKFIST! ALEX BLADE JUST KNOCKED ASHLEY OUT COLD. OH NO, HE IS NOT DONE JUST YET, HE WANTS TO LOCK HIM IN HIS ANACONDA WISE GRIP, THE LOCK N LOAD! AND YES, THE ANACONDA VISE GRIP IS LOCKED IN! ASHLEY IS CLOSE TO THE ROPES BUT HE STILL CANNOT REACH THEM EVEN IF HE IS JUST A FEW FINGERTIPS AWAY… IS HE GOING TO TAP?!
James Peters: Remember, this is an elimination match! The others are obviously not that eager to break up this submission attempt as they are busy fighting it out in the opposite side of the ring! Raylan is going for a Crossroads on Kelton, he got hi… NO! Jon Kelton just barely managed to escape that predicament by pushing his opponent off him at the very last second! RAYLAN WALKS RIGHT INTO A POP UP LIGER BOMB BY CAMERON! HE CALLS IT THE WHOLE SHEBANG! THAT WAS BRUTAL!
Rich Russillo: Ashley is trying to fight back, punches and knees to the back of Alex Blade’s head but to no avail! Alex cranks up the pressure even more… AND ASHLEY HAS TO TAP OUT! HE HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
Bella Braxton: Ashley Vorhees has been eliminated!
James Peters: Ashley Vorhees now joins RYNX to be the second elitist eliminated out of this six-pack extravaganza which means that there’s four competitors remaining in this match. Alex Blade immediately relinquishes hold before KELTON COMES OUT OF THE SHADOWS AND LANDS A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION. KELTON HOOKS BOTH OF HIS ARMS AND DRIVES HIM DOWN!! EGGOOOO TRIPPP!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! BLADE SPINS AND EVADES THE EGO TRIP ATTEMPT.. Kelton runs and springs off the ropes back into him, but Alex Blade twists around for the spinning backfist! KELTON DUCKS THE BACKFIST AND RUNS INTO THE ROPES.. BLADE FOLLOWS BEHIND AND BURIES A KNEE INTO THE MIDSECTION!!
James Peters: Alex Blade stopping him in his tracks as he pulls Kelton into the center of the ring. HE CONNECTS WITH AM EMPHATIC AXE KICK AND PROCEEDS TO TWIST AROUND.. SPINNING JAMENGIRI KICK!! KELTON DUCKS HIS FOOT, SHOOTS INTO THE AIR AND NAILS HIM IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A PICTURE-PERFECT DROPKICK!!
Rich Russillo: Kelton now pulls ‘The Dark Angel’ up to his feet and signals for the end! HE SHOOTS THE MIDSECTION! WAIT!! BLADE GRABS HIS FOOT, THROWS IT DOWN AND CLOCKS ‘THE CHOSEN ONE’ WITH A HUGE ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! WHAT A KICK ACROSS THE EAR AS BLADE GOES TO THE ROPES.
James Peters: Kelton holds onto his tights and drives his forearm into the back of his neck. He grabs the waist and lifts him up for the back suplex. Blade lands on his feet and pushes him into the ropes. Kelton thinks on the fly and jumps onto the middle rope! RAYLAN LEAPS FROM RINGSIDE, GRABS HIS FEET AND SUSPENDS HIM FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE. KELTON IS DANGLING FROM THE ROPES WHILE RAYLAN JUMPS OVER THE TOP AND PLANTS BLADE WITH A SLINGBLADE!
Rich Russillo: Alex Blade reels into the corner while Raylan fixates his attention onto the trapped Kelton and comes off the ropes! HE SLIDES UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE WHILE PULLING KELTON DOWN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! SLIDING GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS!! KELTON MANAGES TO FLIP OUT OF HIS FEET!! RAYLAN NOW RUSHES ONTO THE APRON AND CLOCKS KELTON WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!! Kelton backs off towards the center of the ring while RAYLAN ELECTS TO LEAP OFF THE TOP ROPE!! IS HE GOING FOR IT!! THE RED RIGHT HAND!!!
James Peters: NO!! JON KELTON COUNTERS IT WITH A PRECISION DROPKICK IN MID-AIR!! WHAT IMPECCABLE TIMING FROM “THE CHOSEN ONE” AS HE GINGERLY EMERGES UP TO HIS FEET! KELTON IS LOOKING FOR THE EGO TRIP!! BUT CAMERON CLARK COMES FROM BEHIND AND DECKS HIM WITH A HUGE RIGHT FIST TO THE MUSHER!! KELTON IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AS ASHLEY VOORHEES THROWS HIM INTO THE CORNER.
Rich Russillo: CAMERON COMES OFF THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND RUSHES INTO KELTON! KELTON GETS HIS FOOT UP!! BUT ASHLEY GRABS HIS FOOT AND DECKS HIM WITH A DEVASTATING BACK ELBOW!! KELTON IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT!!! RAYLAN BREES COMES FROM BEHIND AND JUMPS UP! CAMERON SIDESTEPS HIM AND RAYLAN GOES COLLIDING INTO JON KELTON!!
James Peters: WHAT A HARD COLLISION BETWEEN KELTON AND BREES AS CAMERON COMES FROM BEHIND AND GOES FOR A STINGER SPLASH ON BOTH INDIVIDUALS!! Brees rolls away and Kelton eats the full impact of the monster splash from Ashley Voorhees. Brees comes off the ropes and rolls into the ground! HE SHOOTS UP OFF THE CANVAS AND GOES FOR THE ROLLING THUNDER SHOTGUN DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: CLARK GRABS HIS LEGS IN MID-AIR!! BREES IS SHOCKED AS VOORHEES CATAPULTS HIM INTO KELTON IN THE CORNER!! BREES MANAGES TO GET HIS KNEES POSITIONED ON BOTH SIDES OF KELTON AND TILTS BACKWARDS FOR A MONKEY FLIP!! KELTON FLIPS OVER, GRABS VOORHES WITH A HEADSCISSORS AND GROUNDS HIM WITH A BEAUTIFUL HURRICANRANA!!
James Peters: What a beautiful and innovative way to evade the impact of the monkey flip as the hurricanrana sends Cameron Clark into the corner. Kelton turns around and charges into the cornered Brees! Brees gets both his feet up to stop him in his path while also floating over the top rope! HE JUMPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! AND SPRINGBOARDS OVER!! THE RED RIGHT HAND CONNECTS!! THE SPRINGBOARD SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS!!
Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK! BREES GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND IMMEDIATELY HE’S FLOORED WITH THE “CATMS PAJAMAS” STRAITJACKET GERMAN SUPLEX BY CLARK! CLARK LAYS ON TOP OF BREES WITH THE SIDE PRESS!! THIS COULD BE IT FOR RAYLAN BREES!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-
James Peters: RAYLAN BREES POWERS OUT!! “The Alpha Assassin” remains alive in this six-pack match as Cameron Clark can’t believe it! Voorhees is beside himself! He’s apoplectic as he grabs Brees by his throat and pulls him into a chokeslam! BUT ALEX BLADE IS BACK IN THIS MATCH WITH A BACKPACK SLEEPER HOLD CINCHED IN ON CAMERON CLARK!
Persephone: STOP YELLING!! I NEED MY DAMN NAP!
Rich Russillo: Raylan is able to escape the chokehold in the process while Cameron Clark tries to fight off the submission locked in from Alex Blade. Raylan charges into Clark! BUT CLARK IS ABLE TO SUMMON THE POWER TO HOIST BREES UP AND SLAM HIM DOWN WITH A CHOKESLAM WHILE IN THE SLEEPER HOLD!! IMPRESSIVE FEAT OF STRENGTH FROM “MISTER AVERAGE”!!
James Peters: Blade remains mounted onto the back of Clark, but not for long! CLARK LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND SPLASHES DOWN ONTO RAYLAN BREES WITH A JUMPING SENTON SPLASH WITH BLADE ON HIS BACK!! WHAT A BRUTALIZING SENTON FROM CLARK AS HE NOW SETS HIS EYES ONTO BREES.
Rich Russillo: Brees has endured extreme pain in the last few sequences of this match and Voorhees is intending on putting him out of this six-pack for good! CLARK GRABS THE WAIST AND PICKS HIM UP!! CAT’S PAJAMAS!! NO!! BREES ROLLS ONTO HIS FEET AND PULLS CLARK DOWN INTO A SCHOOL BOY!! OH NO!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEE-
James Peters: CLARK POWERS OUT!! CLOSE CALL FOR THE BIG MAN AS BOTH ELITISTS GET UP AT THE SAME TIME!! CLARK GETS UP FIRST, AND IT LOOKS LIKE NOW HE’S TRYING TO LIFT BREES INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, BUT BREES IS ABLE TO COUNTER IT WITH A SUNSET FLIP, THE COVER BY BREES!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Rich Russillo: CLARK GETS OUT ONCE AGAIN!! CLARK AVOIDING THESE CLOSE-CALL PINS AS BREES COMES OFF THE ROPES AND IMMEDIATELY SLAMS HIM DOWN FOR A SLINGBLADE!!I VOORHEES IS SUPINE AND LAID OUT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! HE’S DOWN FOR THE TAKING AS BREES IS NOW PERCHED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HERE WE GO!! HE SOARS OVER FOR A MOONSAULT!
James Peters: CLARK ROLLS OUT OF THE RING BENEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE!! Brees is able to land safely on the canvas but KELTON COMES OFF THE TOP ROPE AND DRILLS HIM WITH A SPRINGBOARD DDT!! THE SPRINGBOARD DDT CONNECTS ON BREES AS KELTON NOW CAPSIZES HIM OVER FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!
ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THRE-
Rich Russillo: KICK-OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: AH!! YOU FUCKING SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME!
James Peters: Brees manages to lift his shoulder up after the devastating shining wizard to the back of the head and Jon Kelton is now furious! “The Chosen One” is furious as he now steps over his body and climbs onto the top turnbuckle! He’s looking to eliminate Brees with the most impactful move out of his arsenal and that could be the Canadian Plunge!
Rich Russillo: He is mounted into the top turnbuckle! BREES IS IN THE LANDING ZONE AND HE HASN’T MOVED AN INCH! HE JUMPS UP FOR THE CORKSCREW MOONSAULT!! BUT CLARK COMES FROM THE APRON AND HITS A HUGE FOREARM BEFORE DRAGGING KELTON TO THE TOP ROPE!! HE HAS A HOLD OF KELTON’S WAIST WHILE HE STEPS UP THE TURNBUCKLES!! OH M!!
James Peters: Kelton is frozen in fear as Clark has him on the top turnbuckle! CLARK POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR A BELLY TO BELLY SUPERPLEX OFF THE TOP!! BUT LOOK!! KELTON GRABS HIM BY THE SIDE AND OVERPOWERS HIM WITH ELBOWS!! CLARK IS STAGGERED AND OPENS UP THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR KELTON TO FLIP BACKWARDS!!! GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD’S LASSSSSSSSSSSSSSTTTT GIFFFFFTTTTT!!!
Rich Russillo: THE MODIFIED SPANISH FLY OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE CONNECTS ONTO CAMERON CLARK AND KELTON NOW CRAWLS OVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE ELIMINATION!!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Bella Braxton: Cameron Clark has been eliminated!
James Peters: CAMERON IS GONE!! That leaves only Raylan Brees, Alex Blade, and Jon Kelton! All three men are getting to their feet and are now all in the center of the ring, and now the three men are beginning to circle the ring to see who will make the first move! BLADE WITH A KICK TO RAYLAN’S MIDSECTION! BLADE GOING RIGHT AFTER RAYLAN- BUT NOW KELTON ATTACKS ALEX BLADE! KELTON HAS BLADE IN THE CORNER AND HE’S HITTING BLADE WITH A BUNCH OF FOREARMS!
Rich Russillo: LOOK! BREES IS GETTING IN ON THE ACTION NOW AS HE HELPS JON ATTACK BLADE! BOTH MEN PUNCHING AWAY AT ALEX BLADE- BUT BLADE KICKS KELTON AWAY AND HITS RAYLAN WITH A HEADBUTT!! ALEX WITH THE SPINNING BACKFIST TO KELTON! KELTON IS DOWN, BUT RAYLAN GOES RIGHT BACK AFTER BLADE! RAYLAN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX TAKING BLADE DOWN MOMENTARILY, AND NOW I THINK HE’S REALLY AIMING TO PUT HIM AWAY!
Persephone: Alright I guess I’m not getting any sleep since you two can’t shut up. Okay what’s going on here? Uhh, that ugly kid right there picked the weird looking guy up in a fireman’s carry, but the weirdo got out of it before pushing the ugly kid out of the ring. Well now I remember why I went to sleep in the first place. This match kinda sucks.
James Peters: You haven’t even been awake for a full minute.
James Peters: Nevermind. Anyways Blade and Brees are still going at it, meanwhile Jon Kelton is slowly managing to get back up. Blade is going after Brees and it looks like he attempted a forearm- but Brees managed to block it before hitting a forearm of his own, causing Blade to stumble backwards! WAIT, BREES JUMPING ONTO THE ROPES, AND HE HITS THE RED RIGHT HAND!! THE SPRINGBOARD SUPERMAN PUNCH- WAIT NO IT DIDN’T CONNECT! BLADE MANAGED TO SLIP BEHIND BREES, AND NOW HE LIFTS HIM UP FOR A BACK SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: BREES MANAGED TO FLIP DOWN ONTO HIS FEET! BREES LANDED AFTER THAT BACK SUPLEX ATTEMPT, AND NOW HE HITS BLADE WITH AN ENZUIGIRI! ALEX BLADE IS STUNNED AND NOW RAYLAN BREES HAS A HUGE OPPORTUNITY TO FINISH HIM OFF! RAYLAN IS PICKING BLADE UP IN THE FIREMAN’S CARRY, AND I THINK THIS IS IT! THE SICARIO CUTTER!!! THE SICARIO CUTTER CONNECTS BY RAYLAN BREES, AND THERE’S THE COVER! ALEX BLADE IS DONE FOR!!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Bella Braxton: Alex Blade has been eliminated!
Persephone: Oh, the match is already about to be over? That’s nice. If only I could sleep through this entire show, but I’m probably not gonna get a second’s worth of rest again with you two screaming at the top of your lungs.
James Peters: You shouldn’t be sleeping anyways… Whatever, we’re down to the final two! Jon Kelton and Raylan Brees! Kelton has managed to finally get back up after that spinning backfist, and now both he and Raylan immediately lock up! Kelton is able to get Raylan in a headlock, but Raylan lifts Kelton up for a back suplex- only for Kelton to land on his feet before delivering an arm drag! Kelton now with an irish whip to the ropes, BUT RAYLAN DUCKS HIS CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT BEFORE HITTING HIM WITH A DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: Kelton now crawling into the corner, BUT HE ISN’T SAFE THERE AS RAYLAN COMES CHARGING IN, AND THERE’S A HUGE FOREARM SMASH BY BREES! RAYLAN NOW LIFTING KELTON UP IN THE SAME FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION BUT KELTON IS QUICKLY ABLE TO GET OUT OF IT BEFORE HITTING RAYLAN WITH A HUGE ROUNDHOUSE KICK! KELTON NOW WITH THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK- AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE WAS ATTEMPTING THE EGO TRIP BUT RAYLAN WAS ABLE TO TOSS HIM OVER HIM WITH A BACK BODY DROP!! These two are giving this match their all, it’s clear that they both really want to win this!
Persephone: Yeah and it’s unfortunate that they’re both equally as awful as the other. This match could’ve been over already but instead I’m still here. Waiting.
James Peters: You were sleeping through the entire match.
Persephone: But I’m awake right now and this is boring.
James Peters: Then just go back to sleep?
Persephone: I can’t you guys won’t shut up. Oh yeah by the way the long haired guy is rolling up the ugly kid. Hopefully this is the end of the match.
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TTTWWWWOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Persephone: Ugh, why do they kick out? What’s the point? Just lose already.
James Peters: Nobody is going to just lose.. Anyways like you said Raylan managed to kick out, and now both men are back to their feet. Kelton attempted another roundhouse kick but Raylan ducked it, and Raylan just attempted an enzuigiri but Kelton was able to block it! Kelton lifting Raylan up, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLE- NO! RAYLAN LANDS ON HIS FEET, AND NOW HE PICKS KELTON UP IN THE TORTURE RACK!! ALPHA ASSAULT!!!
Rich Russillo: THE ALPHA ASSAULT DOESN’T CONNECT!! KELTON WAS ABLE TO HIT BREES WITH A HURRICANRANA BEFORE THE POWERBOMB COULD CONNECT, AND NOW WHAT’S HE LOOKING TO DO!!? RAYAN TRYING TO GET TO HIS KNEES, BUT KELTON HOOKS BOTH ARMS, AND HE CONNECTS WITH THE EGO TRIP!!!! THE EGO TRIP CONNECTS, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER BY JON KELTON!!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(DING DING DING)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner….. JOOOOOOONNNNNNN KKEEEELLLLLTTOOOOONNN!!!!!!
James Peters: What a win! All of these guys put up a great performance tonight, but Jon Kelton gets a huge victory! Not many people are able to get momentum this early on like this, but a win against multiple other people in a match like this is huge. Congratulations to Jon Kelton!
Rich Russillo: Near the end there the match really could’ve gone either way. I honestly thought Raylan Brees had a chance of taking it there, but in the end Kelton somehow found an insane counter for the Alpha Assault before hitting the Ego Trip! All of these men shouldn’t hold their head down, I’m sure there will be other opportunities in the future for them to work towards. Like you said, congratulations Jon Kelton!
Persephone: About time this ended. Onto the next torturous match I guess. I’m glad Sexy Rexy gets to be in the main event, but I really wish I didn’t have to be here for all the matches before the main event.
James Peters: It’s your job..
Persephone: I don’t care. This sucks.
James Peters: Alright. Congrats Jon Kelton once again, looking forward to see what you have in store.
(‘Last Strike’ by Polo G begins to play, and Jon Kelton gets back to his feet on his own with a grin on his face, clearly proud of his win. He allows the referee to raise his hand, before continuing to celebrate his victory on his own, as Raylan Brees rolls out of the ring in pain. Kelton continues to celebrate as Voltage fades out to a commercial break.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome Shawn Sturgis and Komatsu Ogawa…. The Unique Ones!
(‘Four Rusted Horses’ by Marilyn Manson hits, and soon after Shawn Sturgis and Komatsu Ogawa begin walking out to the stage. They waste no time and walk down the ramp, but with smiles on their faces and microphones in their hands as they make their way into the ring, clearly confident in their chances at Fighting Spirit, knowing what occurred during their confrontation with Sarah Price at Gateway to Glory.)
Shawn Sturgis: In case any of you missed it, at Gateway to Glory, a very, very interesting change was made to an already scheduled match.
Komatsu Ogawa: That’s right, and that match just so happened to be ours. Originally, we were supposed to be facing the Specialists Champion Sarah Price in a handicap match. Thanks to what happened at Gateway to Glory, that’s not the case anymore, as a certain someone evened the odds by offering to make this a tag team match, an offer which we accepted. That someone of course is none other than Dynasty’s World Heavyweight Champion, Drake King.
Shawn Sturgis: Not gonna lie, Drake’s inclusion in this match simply makes me more excited for this than before. I would’ve enjoyed facing Voltage’s “Princess” in that handicap match, but being able to take both her and a World Champion down seems pretty fun to me, especially considering they’re clearly not going to be on the same page. We’re gonna have a field day with those two, and how good would it look on our record to have a win over the Specialists Champion, AND the World Heavyweight Champion?
Komatsu Ogawa: That’s right, it’d be a big win for us. Exactly what we need for everyone on the Voltage roster to realize just how big of a deal the two of us are. The two of us work like a well oiled machine, and those two? Didn’t Sarah herself say that she doesn’t plan on tagging Drake in?
Shawn Sturgis: Pretty sure she did. In fact, throughout this past week I’m pretty sure she even pretended Drake just didn’t exist altogether.
Komatsu Ogawa: Those two are about to face the most dangerous tag team on the Voltage roster without even having the ability to co-exist as a team? Those idiots. I don’t know if I should laugh or be insulted that they think they can take us on in their current state. We’re unstoppable together, those two have no idea what they’re getting themselves into.
Shawn Sturgis: Well, Sarah doesn’t know what she’s getting herself into. She insists on fighting this match alone, and while that’s some admirable courage, she’s gotta be pretty stupid to try and do that when she has a partner by her side. On the other hand, I think we both know why Drake got involved in this. It’s pretty obvious to be honest.
Komatsu Ogawa: Honestly you’re right. This match is probably one big fantasy scenario for Drake. I’m sure he’s as excited as ever knowing he’s gonna be on the same side of the ring as Sarah.
Shawn Sturgis: Yep. He’s not even on Voltage. Why else would be take the time out of his day to help-
(‘This is Your Life’ by The Dust Brothers & Tyler Durden suddenly hits, cutting Ogawa off. The two men already in the ring look towards the stage, and soon after the World Heavyweight Champion Drake King walks out to the stage with a microphone in his hand. He has an annoyed look on his face, and he begins speaking while walking down to the bottom of the ramp.)
Drake King: Can you guys give it a rest already? This whole Drake King and Sarah Price shipping thing? It’s stupid. You two are grown men feeding into rumors like kids. This whole thing is just petty and immature, and it’s weird but it’s pretty obvious that people are only doing it because for some reason they want to see SASS split apart over one guy. This isn’t high school. We’re wrestlers. Grown adults. You two should start acting like it.
(Sturgis and Ogawa stay silent, but the smirks on their faces don’t change.)
Drake King: Speaking of being wrestlers, one of you is clearly in a way different league than the other so this tag team even existing in the first place confuses me. Shawn, why are you teaming up with this dude?
(Both men stop smiling, and Shawn looks confused as to why Drake would ask him a question like that.)
Shawn Sturgis: What?
Drake King: You know Ogawa, it must be nice having someone like Sturgis carry you to success, if that’s what you want to call what the two of you have gotten so far. You don’t need to try and get better, or stay consistent, or even put in any effort. You could just rely on Shawn to do all the work. Isn’t that nice?
Komatsu Ogawa: What are you talking about?
Drake King: What am I talking about? You know what I’m talking about. You’re the weak link man. You weren’t worth anything on your own, and the only reason why you’re still in the company at all is because Shawn Sturgis is saving you. I feel bad for you though Shawn. You’re simply hindering yourself trying to carry dead weight like him. I know how it feels. I had to deal with it a year ago, and I just got rid of even more deadweight in the Visual Prophet. I know how much it sucks having to carry a partner that completely fails to pull their weight, and I hate to see other people go through the same torture I went through for months. Trust me Shawn, you don’t need to do this to yourself. Ogawa doesn’t deserve you. Ogawa is simply going to fail you.
Shawn Sturgis: Just give it a rest Drake. You’re not going to tear us apart. Ogawa and I are here to stay.
Drake King: Ok. Sucks to be you then, because you were never going to beat Sarah and I no matter who your partner was, but with him? You two don’t stand a chance. There’s a very big reason why the two of us are Specialists and World Heavyweight Champion. We’re gonna do just fine, this match will be a breeze.
(‘This is Your Life’ hits, and Drake begins walking back up the ramp, but as soon as he gets to the top of the ramp ‘Land of the Innocent’ by Feathers hits. Drake stops at the top of the ramp, and as he sees the Specialists Champion Sarah Price’s face as she walks towards him, he simply sighs, knowing that she clearly isn’t happy with him, especially after Drake went against her wishes and made the match a tag team match without her permission.)
Sarah Price (Off-Mic): Do not come out here and speak for me, ever. You’re not my partner Drake, stop acting like you are. I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve said this already, but I don’t need you Drake, and I’m still wrestling this match on my own. Stop trying to stick up for me, I don’t want you to. You’ve been sticking your nose in my business for no reason and it makes no sense, don’t you have things over on Dynasty to worry about?
Drake King (Off-Mic): Wait wait wait, Wrestling on your own? Not if you want to win this match you’re not. You need to take a second and think Sarah. I don’t care about how you feel about me, you need my help. If you really want to shut those two up and teach them a lesson about bullying or whatever it is you fight against, you can’t do it alone so for once, just liste-
(Before Drake could finish, Sarah slaps him in the face, clearly growing more and more frustrated over Drake’s involvement with what was originally going to be a handicap match, to the point where she simply couldn’t take it anymore. Sarah begins walking to the back as Drake looks pissed off at the fact that he was just slapped in the face, and the Unique Ones begin laughing at Drake over what just happened.)
Shawn Sturgis: Wow, and that’s supposed to be your tag team partner next week?
Komatsu Ogawa: It looks like you guys are the ones that don’t stand a chance.
(‘Four Rusted Horses’ hits, and Drake is practically fuming over Sturgis and Ogawa adding insult to injury, but the Unique Ones can’t help but be amused at Sarah and Drake falling out before Fighting Spirit even hits. The two continue grinning while Drake King begins walking backstage, and the camera fades out to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for the I.D. Channel’s hit show My Family’s Deadly Secret! An all new episode airs tonight at 9/8C.)
(“Land of the Innocent” by Feathers plays through the speakers of the empty Performance Center. A moment passes before Sarah Price comes on with the Specialists Championship on her left shoulder. Sarah is beaming with confidence for being the one to knock out Darcy May Morgan at Gateway to Glory, and after slapping the taste out of Drake’s mouth a few minutes ago. She had finally reached the potential that people had been waiting for her to reach, but this isn’t even a quarter of what Sarah is capable of.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION … “THE SUPERHERO”…SARAH PRICE!!!!
James Peters: At Gateway to Glory, Sarah Price did what most people thought would be unthinkable and that was knock off Darcy May Morgan and end her reign as Specialists Champion. For one, I could not be more excited to see a young woman like Sarah managed to win her first championship in EAW. It’s a very emotional moment for her and there’s no denying that she feels to be on cloud nine at the moment.
Persephone: Yeah, it was a cute and sweet moment, but if she thought that things were going to be lollipops and rainbows now, she’s got another thing coming.
Rich Russillo: Sarah Price is going to be walking into Pain for Pride as champion and I don’t think that she expected that in a million years to happen. I don’t think that she expected for Constance Blevins to make her return and make her claim towards the Specialists Championship. Now, she’s out here, but I’m curious to see what she has to say about the whole ordeal.
(“Land of the Innocent” dies down as Sarah Price has a microphone in her hands. She stands in the middle of the ring and begins to look around, almost if she’s talking to a sold out crowd, but really, she’s talking to the viewers at home.)
Sarah Price: Last week, my so-called “championship celebration” did not pan out the way that I had envisioned in my mind. Constance Blevins decided to re-emerge from the abyss of the darkness of spookiness or where she lives and be nothing, but a coward by taking me out from behind and attacking me. From someone like Constance, I wasn’t really expecting anything from a member of Heavenly Hell to resort to doing stuff like attacking me from behind. If she had any spine, she would have marched towards this ring, looked me in the eye and stated her intentions of trying to take this Specialists Championship away from me. That’s how I would have done things because I’m not a coward. Constance needs to be aware that I’m not difficult to find at all. I mean, I’m on Voltage every week. Also, we’ve been in the same EAW Performance Center for weeks, so there shouldn’t be any sign of struggle to look for me. Basically, she has no excuse for tracking me down because I am always going to be here, more than ready for a fight. That’s the reason that I’m out here.
(Sarah Price looks forward to the stage.)
Sarah Price: Constance, I know that you’re lurking in the back all spooky and stuff. I’m calling you out. If you have an issue with me, settle it in the ring with me.
(A moment passes before “Angel of Darkness” by Alex Christenen plays through the speakers. Constance Blevins walks out with her eyes focused on Sarah Price in the ring.)
James Peters: The last time that we saw Constance Blevins was at Under Siege where The Visual Prophet snapped her ankle during the Unified Tag Team Championship match. People claimed that Constance’s season was over, but Constance managed to defy odds and return just a few weeks before Pain for Pride.
Persephone: Constance made a huge statement over the Specialists Champion last week on Voltage, but I don’t think that she’s someone that you want to make angry.
Rich Russillo: Constance Blevins is ruthless and by the looks of how easily she was able to take down Sarah Price, I think that Sarah may be making a huge mistake by calling out Constance.
(“Angel of Darkness” dies down as Constance Blevins has a microphone in her hand as she stands across from Sarah Price.)
Constance Blevins: Do you want to know why I attacked you last week, Sarah? It’s because you made it so easy for me to do that. You see the world as this beautiful thing with sunshine and rainbows. The hero takes down the villain every time. You believe in fairytales and all of that cheesy stuff, but that’s not the real world. That’s all made up and that’s why it’s so easy. You make it so easy for people like myself to attack you from behind and pumble you to the ground. As champion, you need to constantly have your eyes in all the directions. You need to keep your head on a swivel because you never know where the competition is going to hit you. I don’t think that you’re aware of that, Sarah. You don’t expect for people like myself to make her return, attack you from behind and lay her claim on the Specialists Championship. I don’t think that it even crossed your mind that I would bother showing up. You, like everyone else, believed that I was done for the season, but I was not going to accept that. Oh no, I worked hard to rehab my ankle and make sure that I did not miss out on Pain for Pride. During my time rehabbing, I did some reflecting and I set my priorities straight. Being part of Heavenly Hell gave me a sisterhood that I’m always going to cherish. It’s amazing to see Minerva do her own thing, but I wanted to think about myself. I wanted to make sure that Constance Blevins was seen as something more than “Minerva’s partner.” I wanted for myself to shine through outside of all the glorified favorites and flavors of the month that this company always manages to put on a pedestal and that’s exactly what you are, Sarah. You’re the new favorite toy around these parts and I like to break them.
Sarah Price: I’m not someone that you can toy around, Constance. From some of the things that you said, you remind me of every bully that’s ever picked on me. It’s because they saw me as an easy target. They saw me as someone that they can push around and that’s not the impression that people should be getting out on me. Oh no, Constance, you got the wrong impression out of me. I am someone who didn’t stand for anything that Darcy May Morgan did and you can look at our match at Gateway to Glory as proof of that. Just like I’m not going to stand for anything that you do. I’m not an easy target, Constance. It’s a mistake on your part if you think that attacking me from behind like a coward is going to be the result for every confrontation that we have. At least, you had the spine to look me in the eye and say all of this to my face, but you fired me up. I’m not going to deny your aspirations of pursuing the Specialists Championship. I can assure you that it won’t be easy to get this championship off of me. I’m no one’s easy match. If you think that facing me will be simple for you, then, you got another thing coming.
Constance Blevins: Why don’t we put that to the test?
(Sarah Price tries to hear Constance Blevins out.)
Constance Blevins: Put your Specialists Championship on the line. You versus me at Pain for Pride.
Sarah Price: You’re on. I’ll never back down from a challenge.
(Constance Blevins and Sarah Price stare at each other.)
(“Self-Help Tape” by Moses Summey plays through the speakers, breaking the staredown between Constance Blevins and Sarah Price. Voltage Commissioner, Captain Charisma walks out with a microphone already in his hands. His entrance music dies down.)
Captain Charisma: I hate to interrupt the intense staredown between the two of you. I know, you were in the middle of that and whatnot. As much as I believe that Sarah Price versus Constance Blevins for the Specialists Championship would be amazing, I had a different idea in mind for the Specialists Championship. At Pain for Pride, the Specialists Scramble will be making its return and Sarah, you will be defending your title that way; however, Constance, if you want in the match, then you’re in. I’m not going to deny you of an opportunity to try to become Specialists Champion.
Constance Blevins: Okay, I’ll play your little game, Captain Charisma. It doesn’t matter who is in the match, I’ll knock every woman down in order to become Specialists Champion. Captain Charisma: All the luck to you, ladies. May the odds ever be in your favor.
(“Self-Help Tape” plays once again as Captain Charisma heads towards the back. Sarah Price is trying to process in the news that she learned. Her first title defense is going to be in a Specialists Scramble match and it’s a huge challenge ahead for her, but she’ll be ready. Constance Blevins gestures for the title on her waist before exiting the ring. She walks backwards up the ramp as the two women staredown at each other.)
Rich Russillo: WHAT A BLOCKBUSTER ANNOUNCEMENT FROM CAPTAIN CHARISMA! The Specialists Scramble makes its return at Pain for Pride! Constance Blevins is the first woman to enter the match!
James Peters: More women will be announced in the upcoming weeks, but Sarah Price has a huge title defense ahead of her!
Persephone: Yeah, she’s screwed. Now, where’s Rex?!??!
(The takes another look at the Specialists Champion before fading into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for another I.D. Channel series, The Lake Eerie Murders! Catch a marathon on right now!)
(Voltage would return from commercial break with Bella Braxton standing in the ring, about to introduce the competitors in the match)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!
(‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris would begin to play through the speakers as “Prince Wealthy” Maxwell walks through the curtains onto the stage. A smirk is plastered across Maxwell’s face, clearly confident in his ability to defeat his opponent.)
Rich Russillo: I don’t know about you, but I see Maxwell becoming the next big thing! In recent times he prevailed against both SEBAS and Seth Osiris and I don’t see him slowing down any time soon!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first. Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 250 pounds…MMMMMMMMAXWEEELLLLLL!!!!
Rich Russillo: Listen to that! He doesn’t just look like a star, he’s introduced like one!
James Peters: He has a clear chip on his shoulder after beating two people in a row, now looking for the third victory in his ever growing streak of wins. Two talented men are squaring off tonight, and there’s no doubt they will put on a classic.
(Maxwell’s finger rises up into the air to point down to his face as his name is shouted out. He’d shift from a walk to a jog before sliding onto the apron using his knees to brace the impact followed by entering the ring through the ropes. His theme song would fade out which is followed by ‘If Ya Smell’ by Adam Massacre. The Great Woogieman walks onto the stage, probably imagining a roaring crowd cheering for him and chanting his name.)
James Peters: And here he is! Arguably the most popular man in all of wrestling today, the man who put on a great showing against SEBAS just one week ago. Tonight could just be Woogie’s night, but Maxwell may have something up his sleeve. I guess we’ll find out in just a moment.
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent, coming all the way from Jacksonville Florida, wwweighing in at 260 pounds…TTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHEEE WOOOOOOGIIIIEEEMAAAAAAAAN!!!!
(Woogie slowly raises his arm into the air upon hearing his name as he walks down the ramp. The fan favorite would climb onto the apron and head to the top rope, raising his left arm afterwards. Woogie hops down into the ring.)
Persephone: If I fall asleep please don’t wake me up. I’m going to hate this matchup.
Rich Russillo: You got it, honey!
Persephone: Please stop.
(DING DING DING!)
James Peters: And here it goes! The match is on, and they’re already moving! Woogie is looking for a collar and elbow tie up, but it seems Maxwell doesn’t want to comply as he is visibly shaking his head right now. He’s turning his back to Woogie as he steps away- Oh my! The Woogieman just pushed Maxwell onto his stomach! He’s not taking any disrespect tonight!
Rich Russillo: Disrespect? I’m sure Maxwell just doesn’t want to touch Woogie, do you know about the current situation we’re in???
James Peters: It’s his job to touch other competitors, Rich. Don’t take that out of context.
Persephone: Could you two shut up? You’re making me want to leave.
James Peters: Oh, and look at Maxwell! He’s back on his feet, and he just slapped The Woogieman straight in the face! But Woogie seems to be unphased by the slap.
Rich Russillo: He’s hiding the pain, and that’s a smart trick, but Maxwell surely knows as now he’s got Woogie locked in a headlock! I don’t think many people know how much headlocks hurt, it’s more than just a tight hug. He’s applying pressure on both the ears and cheeks of Woogie with his upper arm.
James Peters: The Woogieman continues to hide the pain whilst he pushes Maxwell into the ropes. Woogie irish whips Maxwell, but Maxwell rebounds with a forearm strike to the jaw! My oh my, Woogie is STILL not hurt! Maxwell with a chop to the chest! Woogieman still isn’t hurt! How long can he keep this up for, though!
Rich Russillo: I think Maxwell has caught onto this trick, because now he’s working on the wrist! He has Woogieman’s arm in hand whilst twisting it in an unnatural way! Woogie is groaning in pain! I told you Maxwell knows what he’s doing!
Persephone: Couldn’t he just, you know, PUNCH him? It seems more logical.
James Peters: I think Woogie just heard you as he did just that! Woogie hits Maxwell with a huge punch to the nose, which breaks Maxwell’s grip! Woogie now irish whips Maxwell again, and Maxwell hooks his arms on the ropes to stop himself from running back towards his opponent. The Woogieman sprints towards Maxwell, but he’s met with a kick directly in the jaw! Wait a second! Woogie caught it! He caught the leg, and how he’s bringing Maxwell to the center of the ring. Maxwell just tried to punch Woogie, but Woogie is too far away.
Rich Russillo: Woogie is forcing Maxwell to hop around, which will drain his stamina ever so slightly. I’m sure Maxwell knows how to get out of this. And now, what? Why did Woogie just give Maxwell’s foot to the referee? And why is the referee holding it?? Put it down!
Peresephone: This is stupid! He’s wasting time to entertain the viewers at home, when he could just end the match right now.
Rich Russillo: Now Woogie with a kick to the hamstring of Maxwell which brings him down to the ground! I don’t know if handing the referee his foot was to make Maxwell pull a muscle or not, but I agree, it’s a stupid move!
James Peters: I respect that decision from Woogie, he’s looking to give the viewers some entertainment in this difficult time, but in the match that could ultimately cost him. We’ll find out soon enough. Oh now look at this! Woogie’s running the ropes, but Maxwell rolls into his stomach as Woogie hops over him. Maxwell is back on his feet, and he leaps over Woogie! He just leaped OVER Woogie! That man is six foot five, that’s high up! Now Maxwell turns around and bends over for Woogie to leap over, BUT WOOGIE STOPS HIMSELF IN FRONT OF MAXWELL TO HIT A DDT! HE JUST SPIKED MAXWELL ON HIS HEAD! AND A COVER ATTEMPT NOW…
Rich Russillo: Oh thank god, Maxwell kicks out! That would have been a disaster if Woogie defeated Maxwell this early on. Woogie lifts Maxwell to his feet and runs the ropes. Wait a second, the spear- No! Maxwell rolls out of the way, and Woogie is sent straight into the turnbuckles! Maxwell grabs Woogie’s leg and rolls him up with a schoolboy!
Peresephone: For fuck sake, he kicks out. Put me out of my misery.
James Peters: That was almost it! If Maxwell was just a second quicker he would have ended this match in disappointing fashion! Both men get to their feet, and Woogie is the first to act as he attempts a knife edge chop, but Maxwell catches his hand! Maxwell looks to strike Woogie…But he stops? Oh my, a poke to the eye- No! Woogie catches his hand! Both men have a hold of each other as they struggle to get their limbs away! Wait a second, Maxwell just dropped to the floor. He still has Woogie’s wrist, and now he’s crawling through Woogie’s legs…What? Maxwell gets back to his feet and yanks Woogie’s other arm away from him OH AND HE HITS A PUMPHANDLE GUTBUSTER! THIS COULD BE OVER AS HE GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!
Persephone: Woogie kicks out once again. Sigh.
Rich Russillo: Come on, ref! Check again, that must have been a three! Unbelievable, come on Maxwell you’ve got this! Maxwell has a hold of Woogie’s feet and he’s dragging him to the center of the ring. Wait he’s looking for it! MAXWELL JUST HIT THE WHEELBARROW NECKBREAKER! THIS COULD BE IT! BUT HE’S NOT COVERING, HE HAS SOMETHING ELSE IN MIND! HE’S GOING TO THE TOP ROPE! YES! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS! MAXWELL JUST HIT WOOGIE WITH THE PRIVATE JET LANDING! COME ON THIS HAS TO BE IT, HE’S COVERING HIM AGAIN!
James Peters: WOOGIEMAN GOT THE SHOULDER UP! HE ESCAPED THE PINFALL AT THE VERY LAST SECOND! BUT MAXWELL GRABS HIS ARM AND TRIES TO LOCK IN THE WRISTWATCH LOCK! NO, WOOGIE SLIPS OUT OF THE HOLD AND GRABS MAXWELL’S LEGS! NOW HE TRIES TO LOCK IN THE SHARPSHOOTER, AND IT WORKS! MAXWELL IS STRUGGLING TO ESCAPE THE SUBMISSION!
Rich Russillo: No no no no NO NO NO! MAXWELL DON’T TAP! COME ON! YOU’VE GOT THIS! YES! MAXWELL IS CLOSE TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! COME ON, GRAB IT! NO! WOOGIE STANDS UP AND DRAGS HIS OPPONENT TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! OH THANK GOD, MAXWELL PUSHES WOOGIEMAN AWAY FROM HIM!
Persephone: Stop shouting, you’re going to make my ears bleed.
Rich Russillo: Anything for you!
James Peters: That sequence just got me on the edge of my seat! What a contest this is so far, and it will only get better. Hang on, look at Maxwell! He’s holding his knee and rolling around, he seems to be hurt!
Persephone: Doesn’t a sharpshooter hurt your back? This guy is a fraud.
Rich Russillo: The referee is making sure Maxwell is okay, but Woogie isn’t having any of it! He shoves the referee out of the way, but gets hit with a huge kick to the ear! Woogie stumbles back as Maxwell gets to his feet. Maxwell runs to Woogie but gets caught! Oh no OH MY! A HUGE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX SENDS MAXWELL CRASHING INTO THE MAT! WOOGIE LIFTS MAXWELL UP TO HIS FEET ONCE MORE AND TURNS HIM AROUND. WOOGIE PLACES MAXWELL’S ARM OVER HIS SHOULDER AND OH MY! AN OLYMPIC SLAM! THIS COULD FINISH THE MATCH JUST HERE, AND HE’S COVERING MAXWELL. PLEASE KICK OUT!
Rich Russillo: OH THANK GOD! MAXWELL KICKS OU- NO! NO WOOGIE TRIES TO LOCK IN THE SHARPSHOOTER AGAIN! MAXWELL GRABS ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE! OH WAIT A SECOND, WOOGIE GRABS MAXWELL’S WAIST AND ATTEMPTS A GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT MAXWELL FLIPS ONTO HIS FEET! MONEY MAKER! THE ELBOW SMASH HITS WOOGIE IN THE BACK OF THE NECK! WOOGIE IS HURTING AS HE FALLS OVER! PLEASE MAXWELL COVER! NO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!?!? DON’T PICK HIM BACK UP, COVER HIM!
James Peters: Maxwell has something in mind as he grabs hold of Woogie’s wrist. Oh no, I know what he’s looking for…THE GOLDEN BOOT- NO! WOOGIE CATCHES HIM BY HIS CHEST! WAIT A SECOND, THE BOTTO- NO! MAXWELL BASHES HIS ELBOW INTO WOOGIE’S EAR! MAXWELL RUNS THE ROPES NO- SPEAR!!!! WOOGIE JUST HIT MAXWELL WITH A THUNDEROUS SPEAR! HE COVERS!
Rich Russillo: YES!!!! HE’S STILL IN IT! MAXWELL KICKS OUT! WHAT A GREAT WRESTLER, OH MY GOD THIS IS SO GOOD! MAXWELL I MEAN, HE’S SO GOOD! WOOGIE NOW GRABS MAXWELL BY HIS LUSCIOUS LONG LOCKS! LET GO! OH NO HE LIFTS HIM TO HIS FEET…SPINEBUSTER! OH MY GOD! HE WALKS ROUND TO HIS HEAD AND REMOVES AN ELBOW PAD! NO DON’T YOU DARE THROW IT AT ME! Oh good.
James Peters: WOOGIE RUNS THE ROPES, AND HE HOPS OVER MAXWELL, HE RUNS BACK…THE PEOPLE’S ELBO- NO! MAXWELL ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND STANDS BACK UP! WOOGIE’S ELBOW JUST CONNECTED WITH THE UNFORGIVING RING MAT! WAIT A SECOND, MAXWELL PULLS WOOGIE TO HIS FEET AND GRABS HIS WRIST AGAIN! THE GOLDEN BOOT! HE JUST HIT WOOGIE WITH THAT RIPCORD BICYCLE KICK! IT’S OVER! HE FALLS INTO A COVER!
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: YES! HE DID IT! MAXWELL PULLED IT OFF AND DEFEATED THE WOOGIEMAN! THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT I’VE EVER SEEN! ARE YOU EXCITED, PERSEPHONE!?!?!?
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNEEER, MMMMMAXXXXWEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Both men did outstandingly tonight, but one man came out on top and that was Maxwell! This was a fantastic match, and I’m sure whatever happens next will benefit both men. But tonight we found out who the better man was, and that is Maxwell.
(The camera focuses on Maxwell celebrating on the top rope with his arms raised high, he’s still got that cocky smile on his face. Voltage then fades elsewhere.)
(The camera cuts backstage in the interview area, as Sofia Clarke is waiting with her microphone in her hand)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, Hannah Marin.
(The camera pans over to Hannah Marin who is standing next to Sofia Clarke. She is showing concern for what transpired ast week but at the same time, she’s trying to hide it behind a fake smile)
Hannah Marin: Thank you for having me.
Sofia Clarke: Last week, Cepheus St. Claire took on Colby Sol in a rather intense and violent match. After having successfully turned things around, Colby Sol managed to get an upset win. Though that win cost him big time, as Cepheus took out his frustrations in a vicious post match attack that left the EAW fans wondering whether Colby Sol will be ready to fight at Fighting Spirit or not. We are just six days away from his triple threat match against Consuela Rose Ava and Gavin McArdle. Not to mention, the Interwire Championship will also be on the line. Do you have any update on his current medical condition?
Hannah Marin: Colby Sol is tough, alright? He truly possesses a Fighting Spirit, and yes, the pun was totally intended. Nobody has his same will to fight and overcome the odds. Every single person in this locker room should look up to him and treat him with the respect he deserves for putting his body on the line and fighting back against evil creatures such as Cepheus St. Claire. However, it’s really that “Fighting Spirit” of him that I am most concerned about. See, physical health is not that big of a deal. These athletes… these Elitists, I should say, are built to go through the things Colby Sol went through last week. And worry not, I can guarantee you Colby Sol will be 100% ready for his Interwire Championship opportunity, at least from a physical standpoint.
Sofia Clarke: That’s great news. Last week’s attack left us all wonderi….
Hannah Marin: However! It’s that “Spirit” I’ve mentioned, what concerns me the most about Colby Sol. The poor soul has been through a lot of tough moments in his career. He was stuck in a seemingly never ending tunnel of losses, up until Jesse Barlow showed up and guided him to finally see the light. Jesse’s job is far from being over, however. Colby still needs guidance, he still needs people like us to support him in his fight against the scum of this planet such as Cepheus St. Claire. That guy… he is so evil on so many levels. How can a human being do the things he did last week to another one of his kind? There’s simply no excuse for his behavior, he is Satan personified and Jesse Barlow is going to put him down soon enough.
(Hannah Marin nods vigorously as she appears to have lost the concerned look she had at the beginning of the interview and she looks now rather confident instead)
Sofia Clarke: So, despite everything that happened last week, you still believe both Jesse Barlow and Colby Sol are going to walk out of Fighting Spirit victorious?
Hannah Marin: Absolutely. Where is your Faith, Sofia? I trust Jesse with my life. He is going to beat Cepheus so badly, that the little attack the bastard pulled last week on Colby is going to look like nothing. It is going to be the most brutal Barbed Wire ladder match in the history of Wrestling and I can promise you, Cepheus is going to be sorry for what he did. Not only that, but Colby Sol is going to shut both Gavin McArdle AND Consuela Rose Ava up by winning the Interwire Championship. I have no doubt in my mind that come Fighting Spir…
???: You were talking about me?
(The camera pans to the left and reveals Consuela Rose Ava, wearing her ring attire with the Interwire Championship Belt around her shoulder)
Consuela Rose Ava: Please continue. I don’t mean to interrupt.
Hannah Marin: You “don’t mean to interrupt” yet you literally just did. But you know what? Be my guest. Actually, I am happy you decided to show up because I have a couple of things to say to you. First of all, …
(Consuela puts her index finger on Hannah Marin’s lips as she immediately stops talking and freezes. Consuela smirks as Sofia Clark looks on)
Consuela Rose Ava: My turn, now. Your obsession for Jesse Barlow is none of my concern, at this point I think you are well beyond the point of no return. But you better not think for a second that you two… or I should say, you “three”, are going to get the better of me. Do I have to remind you what happened at Bloodsport last year? Jesse Barlow has the brilliant idea to make things personal with me, he made my life a living hell and he even went as far as to bring my daughter into this. When you make things personal like he did, it’s not just Wrestling anymore, isn’t it?
(Consuela pauses for a moment.)
Consuela Rose Ava: May I also remind you who had the last laugh earlier this season? I did. I survived everything Jesse Barlow put me through and now I am here, standing in front of you as the Interwire Champion while he has to desperately resort to brainwash younger rookies just so he can try to hurt me because the three of us know he couldn’t do it by himself. For someone who is so concerned with faith and salvation, you can agree with me when I say that Karma is kind of a bitch, isn’t it?
(A sweet smile crosses Consuela’s face.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Now take all the things I have said and our history. Do you really think that this diet version of Jesse Barlow, aka Colby Sol, is going to beat me when not even his “master” could do it? Don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for the guy. I would have definitely preferred to see Jesse Barlow with that same injury, I think he deserves it a lot more. But if I have nothing to prove to Jesse Barlow, how can you possibly think things are going to go any different against Colby?
(Consuela removes her finger from Hannah’s lips and gives her a soft slap on her cheek, as she nervously smiles)
Hannah Marin: Very funny, Consuela. I see massive egos just run in the family, don’t they? Well, let me tell you one last thing. Your massive pride is going to be your downfall come Fighting Spirit. Colby Sol is a changed man and thanks to Jesse Barlow’s guidance, he is going to beat you. Maybe, just maybe, you will learn that humility is a much better trait for a “Champion” such as yourself. Consider yourself lucky because tonight Jesse Barlow is going to give you a preview of things to come your way, when he beats you in the middle of that ring and shows the world the absolute fraud you are.
(Hannah Marin leaves the scene by walking in the same direction as the one Consuela entered and purposely bumping her shoulder on her way out. Consuela doesn’t react at all. She simply looks on as the camera focuses on her face and then Voltage fades to break.)
(Commercial break for Walmart’s online grocery department. Honestly, people should never stop inside of a store again.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the ringside area.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, one half of the special guest commentators for this match, Gavin McArdle!
(‘The Body of an American’ by The Pogues hits, as Gavin McArdle makes his way out on to the stage, followed by Damien O’Regan. Gavin makes his way down the ramp as Damien follows, reaching the commentating table Gavin takes a seat and slides the headset on.)
James Peters: Gavin, glad you managed to join us. From what I understood was that both you and Cepheus St. Claire were to join us.
Gavin McArdle: That is correct, James, but what happened to Cepheus is beyond me.
Rich Russillo: At any rate, glad you can join us. Tonight you get front row seats to one of your opponents for Fighting Spirit.
Gavin McArdle: I am definitely looking forward to what she does here tonight. Consuela was kind enough let me in on the match at Fighting Spirit, so she has 100% of my attention.
(‘The Path’ by Senses Fail hits, and Jesse Barlow walks out to the stage, and Hannah Marin follows. Jesse stops as well as Hannahas she wraps one arm around Jesse as she throws the other up in the air as the both strike a pose.)
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: OHH!!! What’s going on at the top of the ramp.
Rich Russillo: IT’S CEPHEUS! THAT DAM FOOL JUST ATTACKED JESSE FROM BEHIND. Cepheus isn’t giving two fucks about Fighting Spirit he wants to take care of business now. CEPHEUS AGAIN WITH ANOTHER FOREARM TO THE BACK OF JESSE. Hannah tried stepping in and was just flung away by Cepheus as he digs another punch to Jesse’s head. Would someone get out here and take care of this, the man has a match to still tend too.
Gavin McArdle: Oooo! He mollywhopped the shit out of him with that last punch to the head.
(Security and other EAW personnel come out to separate Cepheus from Jesse. Hannah helps Jesse to his feet as EAW personnel carry off Cepheus. Jesse makes it to the ring waiting as ‘The Path’ slowly fades out.)
Rich Russillo: No doubt, Gavin. He didn’t take too many hits that he can’t shake before the match begins.
Persephone: That’s what Jesse gets. You wanna pick a fight with someone freshly back in the ring after six months. Cepheus shoulda done something to blonde bimbo Hannah while he was at it.
(“We Appreciate Power” by Grimes hits, out comes the Interwire Champion, as she proudly steps out onto the stage wearing the Interwire Championship over one shoulder as she begins her slow walk down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Making her way to the ring, EAW’s Interwire Champion…The Prefectionist…COONNNSSEEUULLLLLLAAAAA ROSE AVVVAAAAAA!!!!!!
(She gracefully takes her time getting to the ring apron once there she gives a cold look at the ref, as why he didn’t give her a hand with the ropes. Ref quickly moves over and holds the ropes for Consuela as she slips the ropes and moves to the middle of the ring and holds up the Interwire Championship as she hands it off.)
James Peters: Well folks Next week at Fighting spirit both of these competitors have their hands full. But here tonight is definitely how both these future matches are going to be looking like. The both of them know their way around this ring and I expect it to be a great showcase for Fighting Spirit.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Jesse and Consuela go for an elbow collar lock up, but Jesse drops to one knee gripping around Consuela’s waist. JESSE GOES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT CONSUELA HOOKS A LEG, KEEPING HER GROUNDED. CONSUELA GOES FOR A BACK ELBOW AND CATCHES JESSE UNDER CHIN. JESSE TRIES TO LIFT HER ONCE AGAIN BUT NO CONSUELA HAS HER LEG STILL HOOKED AROUND JESSE’S. CONSUELA GOES FOR ANOTHER BACK ELBOW, BUT JESSE IS ABLE TO AVOID THAT ONE BY BOBBING HIS HEAD BACK. CONSUELA REACHES BACK AND GRABS JESSE BY THE HEAD AND JUMPS IN TO THE AIR, AND BRINGS JESSE DOWN WITH A JUMPING SNAPMERE TAKE DOWN AS JESSE. JESSE ROLLS OUT QUICKLY TO HIS FEET, CHARGES IN BUT IS CONSUELA GREETS HIM WITH A RUNNING CLOTHES LINE. CONSUELA GOES STRAIGHT FOR JESSE, BUT JESSE IS ABLE TO COUNTER BRINGING CONSUELA QUICKLY TO THE MAT WITH A ARMDRAG TAKEDOWN AS JESSE ROLLS THROUGH AND POPS BACK TO HIS FEET AS THEY BOTH HAVE A BIG SMILE ON EACH OTHERS FACE AS THEY CIRCLE THE RING LOOKING FOR AN OPENING.
James Peters: JESSE AND CONSUELA LOCK UP ONCE AGAIN IN A ELBOW COLLAR LOCK, BUT WITH A JESSE BIGGER SIZE IS MANAGES TO PUSH CONSUELA UP AGAINST THE ROPES…REF STEPPING IN TO BREAK THE HOLD. JESSE RAISES HIS HANDS SHOWING HE LET GO. THEN QUICKLY TRIES TO BLINDSIDE CONSUELA WITH A RIGHT HOOK, BUT CONSUELA IS ON HIGH ALERT AS SHE’S ABLE TO DUCK UNDER AS JESSE SWINGS AT NOTHING BUT AIR…CONSUELA SNEAKS THROUGH THE LEGS, JUMPING UP WITH A DROP KICK TO JESSE SENDING HIM OVER THE ROPES…BUT NO JESSE IS ABLE TO KEEP HIMSELF HANGING FROM THE ROPES…CONSUELA RUNNING THE ROPES WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE RIGHT IN THE BACK OF JESSE AS HE RELEASES THE HOLD ON THE ROPES AND DROPS TO THE FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE.Consuela hops to the floor walking toward Jesse pointing toward the commentators table.
(Consuela flashes Gavin a confident smile before turning her attention back to Jesse.)
James Peters: Consuela helps Jesse back to his feet as she leads him toward the commentators table. OH MY GODDDD! CONSUELA JUST BOUNCED JESSE’S HEAD OFF THE TABLE.
(ref begins a count…OOONNNNEEE!!!)
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA NOW LEADING HIM TOWARD THE RING SHE ATTEMPTS TO CRACK HIS SKULL ON THE RING APRON…JESSE PUTS HIS HANDS UP ONTO THE APRON AND BLOCKS..JESSE WITH AN ELBOW TO THE MID SECTION. JESSE TAKES A COUPLE STEPS BACK TO CATCH HIS BREATH…BUT CONSUELA OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A RUNNING LARIAT SENDING JESSE TO THE FLOOR..
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA ROLLS IN TO THE RING TO THE BREAK THE REF’S COUNT…CONSUELA ROLLS BACK OUT GOING STRAIGHT BACK FOR JESSE WHO HAS MADE IT BACK TO ONE KNEE. CONSUELA REACHES TO DRAG JESSE UP, BUT JESSE SWIPES THE FEET OUT FROM UNDER HER.
Persephone: JESSE’S BACK TO HIS FEET NOW BRINGING CONSUELA TO HER FEET.
James Peters: JESSE NOW DIRECTING CONSUELA BACK TO THE RING…BUT NO CONSUELA IS ABLE TO PUSH JESSE AWAY THEN RUN PUSHING JESSE FACE FIRST INTO THE RING. THEN PUSHES HIM BACK IN TO THE RING…THEN HOPING TO THE APRON ON ONE KNEE BEFORE SLIDING BACK INTO THE RING WHERE JESSE IS ON ALL FOURS CRAWLING ACROSS THE MAT…CONSUELA TAKES A STEP IN FRONT OF HIM…JESSE COMES UP TO ALL FOUR LOOKING DIRECTLY INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES BEFORE JESSE TURNS TO RUN AWAY ON BOTH HIS KNEES…CONSUELA RUNS THE ROPES AND AND CATCHES JESSE ON THE REBOUND WITH A RUNNING KNEE SENDING JESSE TO THE MAT, CONSUELA WITH THE A LEG PIN.
Rich Russillo: JESSE GETS A SHOULDER UP AND BREAKS THE COUNT. CONSUELA QUICK TO HER FEET AS SHE DRAGS JESSE TO HIS…JESSE WITH AN ELBOW TO THE MIDSECTION…JESSE MANAGES TO GIVE CONSUELA A SNAPMARE TAKEOVER…OH DAM WITH A DROP KICK TO THE BACK OF CONSUELA’S HEAD. DAMN!!! Talk about whiplash. He put it all into that one. Jesse hops back to his feet with a big smile on his face as he shakes the cob webs…Jesse quickly recovers and goes straight for a cover.
OOONNNNNEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!! THHHHHRREEEE….
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA BARELY RECOVERED FROM THAT DROP KICK TO THE BACK THE HEAD, AND WAS ABLE TO A SHOULDER UP. NOT SURE HOW THIS GOING TO AFFECT HER THROUGH THE REST OF THIS MATCH. CONCUSSION OR NOT THAT WAS A DEFESTATING KICK NONETHELESS. JESSE DRAGS THE HALF HELPLESS BODY OF CONSUELA BACK TO HER FEET. JESSE HOOKS CONSUELA IN A FACE HEADLOCK LOOKING TO GO FOR A DDT…BUT NO CONSUELA SLIPS OUT OF IT BUT CONTINUES WITH HOLDING HIS HAND AS SHE COMES OUT SPINNING TRIES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT JESSE DUCKS AS BOTH OF THEM RUN THE ROPES MEETING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING BUT IT’S CONSUELA THAT MEETS JESSE WITH A FLYING CLOTHESLINE FLIPPING JESSE INSIDE OUT….NOW IT’S CONSUELA WITH THE PIN, ROLLING UP JESSE WITH BOTH LEGS.
James Peters: JESSE WITH A BIG POP OUT BREAKING THE COUNT…CONSUELA OUT FRUSTRATION SLAPS JESSE ACROSS THE FACE…JESSE OUT DEFENSE SLAPS HER BACK SENDING CONSUELA IN TO A SHOCK AS SHE GRABS AT HER FACE. BOTH GET TO THERE FEET AND GET IN EACH OTHERS FACE…
Gavin McArdle: I think both of those slaps were more on a personal level.
Persephone: Ahhh! Too bad Consuela still the ugly one out of the sisters..She looks like shit, but on the bright side that title does give her a glow. If I was Camille and my sister fucked me out of my title, I would…never mind, I will not waste my breath on her, she is our Interwire Champion after all.
James Peters: What comes out of your mouth never amazes me Persephone. You sure do know how to really…HOLY SHIT CONSUELA JUST SLAPPED THE SHIT OUT JESSE AGAIN…JESSE GRABS AT HIS FACE THEN AUTOMATICALLY GOES IN FOR A PUNCH BUT CONSUELA IS ABLE TO THROW UP BOTH FOREARMS AND BLOCK… DUCKS UNDER THE PUNCH…CONSUELA WITH A KICK TO THE RIGHT THIGH…THEN TO THE LEFT…CONSUELA GOES FOR THE KICK TO THE HEAD BUT JESSE CATCHES HER LEG SPINS HER AROUND AND GRABS CONSUELA BY THE WAIST…JESSE JUST DROPPED CONSUELA ONTO THE BACK OF HER NECK WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX..JESSE GOES STRAIGHT FOR CONSUELA, DRAGS HER TO HER FEET…LIFTS HER UP IN TO A FACE HEADLOCK….BAMMM!!!! JESSE JUST DROPPED CONSUELA RIGHT ON TOP OF HER HEAD WITH THAT DDT…JESSE GOES STRAIGHT FOR THE COVER…
OOOONNNNEEEEE!!!!! TTTWWWOOO!!!! TTTHRRREEEEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA GETS A SHOULDER UP BREAKING THE COUNT. JESSE HAS A SICK LOOK ON HIS FACE, AS HE MOVES TO HIS FEET…JESSE WAITS FOR CONSUELA TO GET TO HER FEET…HE TAKES OFF RUNNING LOOKING FOR THE RUNNING KNEE…NOPE CONSUELA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY BARELY ESCAPING THE ‘NEVERMORE’ FINISHER AS JESSE’S LEG GETS CAUGHT UP IN THE SECOND ROPE. CONSUELA RUNS THE ROPES BUT BEFORE CONSUELA CAN GET THERE JESSE SLIPS OUT TO THE GROUND BUT CONSUELA STOPS IN HER TRACK AS SPRINGS OVER THE ROPES THEN OFF THE SECOND ROPE WITH THE LEMONLIGHT MOONSAULT CONNECTING TO JESSE ON THE OUTSIDE SENDING THE BOTH TO THE GROUND.
(Ref on the outside checking the both of them…both competitors showing signs of life, but it’s Consuela to her feet first grabbing at your mid section…Consuela now helping Jesse to his feet.)
James Peters: CONSUELA TRIES TO LEAD JESSE TO THE RING BUT JESSE CLUBS HER IN THE STOMACH…THEN GRABBING HER FOR A SUPLEX…JESSE LIFTS CONSUELA UP IN TO THE AIR AS HE WALKS AROUND A FEW STEPS…THE REF IS TRYING TO GET HIM TO BREAK THE SUPLEX….OH NO….JESSE JUST DROPPED CONSUELA OVER THE BARRIER LEAVING HER TO HANG. REF NOW IS TRYING TO GET JESSE TO GO BACK TO THE RING…CONSUELA SLIPS OFF THE BARRIER AS SHE DRAGS HERSELF UP AS JESSE IS CLIMBING INTO THE RING CONSUELA CHARGES AFTER HIM…JESSE TURNS AROUND AND THERE IS CONSUELA JUMPING INTO THE AIR…SHE JUST NAILED JESSE WITH THE RUNNING FACEWASH TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING. CONSUELA GOES STRAIGHT FOR THE RING AND RUNS THE ROPES AS JESSE MAKES HIS WAY TO HIS FEET AS HE LOOKS UP ALL HE SEES IS CONSUELA FLYING THROUGH THE AIR…TOPE CONSUELA HILO OVER THE TOP ROPE…WAIT JESSE JUST CAUGHT CONSUELA, BUT CONSUELA COUNTERS WITH HURRICANRANA SENDING JESSE FLIPPING IN TO THE SIDE OF THE COMMENTATORS TABLE.
(Consuela climbs the commentators table and looks down at Gavin, pointing at Jesse.)
Consuela(off mic): I AM GOING TO DO THE SAME TO YOU AND COLBY AT FIGHTING SPIRIT!!
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA TAKES THE LEAP AND STICKS JESSE ACROSS THE CHEST WITH AN ELBOW DROP FROM THE TABLE, CONSUELA QUICKLY BRINGS JESSE BACK TO HIS AS SHE ROLLS HIM BACK IN TO THE RING.
(Consuela turns to go say something else to Gavin, but is met face to face with Hannah.)
Consuela(off mic): Out of my face, Hannah.
(Consuela slaps her across the face as she quickly hops to the apron and into the ring. Hannah is in awe as she goes to grab at Consuela’s leg but the ref is there to step in between.)
Gavin McArdle: She’s quite the feisty one, eh?
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA METS JESSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS JESSE PUTS A BOOT TO HER STOMACH…He has been really working that midsection tonight….JESSE GOES FOR ANOTHER DDT ATTEMPT BUT CONSUELA PUSHES OUT OF IT SENDING JESSE OFF THE ROPES..CONSUELA RUNS THE THE ROPES. RUNNING KNEE OF DEATH…SHE JUST CONNECTED WITH LA RODILLA DO LA MUERTE SENDING JESSE TO THE MAT…CONSUELA ROLLS HIM UP…REF DOWN FOR THE COUNT..
OOONNNEEEEE!!! TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!! TTTTHHHHRRREEEEEE!!!!
James Peters: JESSE KICKED OUT!! WHAT ELSE DOES CONSUELA NEED TO DO TO PUT HIM AWAY. Jesse managed to kick out, even Hannah has a look of disbelief. Jesse is strong in the ring competitor and Consuela knows it’s going to take just a little more than that to put Jesse away here tonight. Consuela quickly rises to her feet and she heads to the corner and gets a running stance as she waits for Jesse to move to all four. If Consuela connects the Penalty we know for sure that kick will send Jesse straight to the dentist.
Rich Russillo: Consuela takes off running but before Consuela makes it to him Jesse rolls out of the ring. He seen that coming but he needs to watch where she is..CONSUELA RUNS THE ROPES SHE MAKES THE ATTEMPT FOR DIVE OVER THE ROPE BUT SHE SEE QUICKLY SEES JESSE MOVE BACK A LITTLE BUT CONSUELA GRABS THE ROPES ON THE WAY UP AND CATCHES HERSELF TO THE APRON…LEMONLIGHT SHE JUST HIT ANOTHER LEMONLIGHT…BUT JESSE MANGES TO MANHANDLE HER AND CATCH IN MID AIR….JESSE THEN RAMS HER BACK IN TO THE APRON BEFORE ROLLING HER BACK IN TO THE RING.
OOOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!! THHHHHHRRREEEE!!!!
(Out of nowhere Cepheus is seen coming up to the barrier which catches Jesse’s eye but before Jesse has a chance to approach Hannah steps in front of him telling him that Consuela needs to be finished and he can take care of Cepheus at Fighting Spirit.)
Persephone: Oh my god!!! Why the fuck is Cepheus back out here again?
James Peters: Jesse turns to go back to the ring after Consuela but Jesse is met by Consuela flying through the air with a crossbody to ground. CONSUELA PULLS JESSE BACK TO HIS FEET AND ROLLS HIM BACK IN TO THE RING…CONSUELA ROLLS IN AND PULLS JESSE TO HIS FEET BUT JESSE BURSTS UP AND KNOCKS CONSUELA’S ARMS UP AND KICKS HER IN THE STOMACH SENDING BENT OVER IN TO THE CORNER. JESSE TAKES OFF RUNNING CONNECTING CONSUELA WITH A SPEAR….JESSE JUST HIT CONSUELA WITH THE ABOLISHER SMASHING HER INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE.
Rich Russillo: WHAT IS CEPHEUS DOING NOW?
(You can see Cepheus digging under the ring…as he drags out a ladder and sets it outside the ring and climbs to the top and has a seat. You can see him arguing with Jesse and the Ref that he just wants front row seats because it’s just been an amazing show. He begins to applaud and insists Jesse to continue on with the match.)
Gavin McArdle: I have to agree with the lad it’s been a blessing sitting aside the ring watching my future opponent work her strategies in the ring.
Rich Russillo: OH!!!Consuela with a schoolboy roll up pin. JESSE WITH THE QUICK KICK OUT AND CONSUELA METS HIM WITH A SHOTGUN DROP KICK KNOCKING JESSE BACK IN TO THE REF KNOCKING HIM DOWN. WHAT’S THIS CEPHEUS IS STANDING AT THE TOP OFF THE LADDER AS CONSUELA COMES FOR A OVERHAND PUNCH JESSE DUCKS AND GIVES CONSUELA A CUTTER COMING OUT OF THE CORNER. CEPHEUS TAKES THE LEAP COMING DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE FROM THE TOP OF THE LADDER. SENDING JESSE TO THE MAT…AS CEPHEUS ROLLS THROUGH THE REF CATCHES AN EYE OF CEPHEUS ROLLING THROUGH THE ROPES TO OUTSIDE AND SEEING BOTH CONSUELA AND JESSE LAID OUT IN THE RING.
DING!!! DING!!! DING!!!
(Ref off mic signals for the bell…Cepheus rolls back into the to get into the ref’s face as he shoves him to the mat and goes straight after Jesse….)
James Peters: CEPHEUS GOES STRAIGHT FOR JESSE BUT JESSE CATCHES CEPHEUS WITH A TOE HOLD DROPPING CEPHEUS NECK FIRST ACROSS THE BOTTOM ROPE JESSE LEAPS UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE SWINGING HIS WAY OVER AND CATCHING CEPHEUS RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE…JESSE CLIMBS THE CORNER SETS HIMSELF UP AS HE FLIPS THROUGH THE AIR AND LANDS PREFECT ON CEPHEUS WITH A 650 SPLASH…OMG JESSE JUST HIT THE FEAR OF GOD ON CEPHEUS.
DING!!! DING!!! DING!!!
(Gavin just hopped up from commentary and is in the ring after Consuela.)
Rich Russillo: LOOK IT’S COLBY….IT’S COLBY SOL…COLBY SLIDES IN TO THE RING BLOCKING A PUNCH FROM GAVIN BEFORE LAYING IN A COMBO OF LEFTS AND RIGHTS BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES WITH A SPRINGBOARD SUPERMAN PUNCH…COLBY JUST KNOCK GAVIN OUT OF THE RING WITH THAT MASSIVE KRYPTONITE SHOT ACROSS THE JAW OF GAVIN.
(Hannah helps Jesse to his feet as they get the hell out of dodge, leaving Cepheus behind.)
James Peters: COLBY TURNS AROUND TO A CHARGING CONSUELA AND CATCHES CONSUELA WITH A FOLLOW THROUGH SLAM QUICKING SPRINGING TO HIS FEET AND DRAGGING CONSUELA’S HELPLESS BODY BACK TO HER FEET HE SLIPS HER HEAD BETWEEN HIS KNEES AND PULLS HER UP BY HER GUT SENDING HER DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SOL REAPER…BUT POPS BACK UP AND STARES DOWN AT THE CARNAGE OF CONSUELA AND GAVIN LAID OUT.
Rich Russillo: Colby Sol really made a statement sending a message to Gavin but more importantly to the Interwire Champion. I see a future champion in Colby, but can he hold up in his first opportunity at a championship, especially against Consuela.
James Peters: Going into Fighting Spirit both of the matches that follow up on these five competitors on top of an already stacked card, we’re ready and we’re ready for it now.
(Colby, Jesse, and Hannah stand on the stage grinning at one another as the scene fades to break.)
(Commercial break for HelloFresh featuring Kassidy Heart cooking for Mr. DEDEDE once again. #CoupleGoals.)
(Voltage returns and the commentators can be heard talking in the background.)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage! Coming up next we have a huge match with Fighting Spirit implications! Limmy Monaghan is going to face Terry Chambers as both of their respective Fighting Spirit Tag Team partners will be at ringside! It’s impossible to predict what is going to happen here!
Persephone: These two idiots are going to fight out here tonight to prove who is the biggest idiot of the two and give us a preview for when they get to team up with another idiot to determine which idiot team are the biggest idiots come Fighting Spirit.
James Peters: W…. what?
Bella Braxton: The following contest is set for one fall…
(‘Peace Sign’ by Kenshi Yonezu plays up as Limmy Monaghan shows up on stage accompanied by Mark Macias.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first.. From Glasgow, Scotland, weighing in at 180 pounds, he is one half of the Grand Athletes… LIMMY MONAGHAN!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Limmy talked A LOT of trash to Terry Chambers earlier this week and I am not sure if poking the bear is going to be the best strategy here. I guess we are about to see if the mind games are going to play out the way the Grand Athletes want or not,
Rich Russillo: Mind Games are always useful, James. Besides, Limmy has shown the right amount of determination ahead of this match, he is not going to let the Barbaric Carnivore scare him off. He is here to fight.
(Limmy enters the ring as Mark Macias starts pacing at ringside)
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons plays up as Terry Chambers appears on stage accompanied by Bethany Blue, who looks completely crazed. The two look at each other for a couple of seconds and then they start to make their way down the ramp, as Terry Chambers keep looking at Limmy Monaghan with an angry look on his face)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… from Los Angeles, California… Weighing in at 287 pounds… The Barbaric Carnivore… Terry Chambers!!!
Rich Russillo: Terry is going to rip Limmy Monaghan apart here tonight, I swear.
James Peters: Maybe. Or maybe not. The real question is, how is he going to coexist with Bethany Blue? The two hate each other!
Persephone: They are EAW Professionals… they are paid to do things they don’t like. Just like I am paid to sit through this torture!
(Terry Chambers walks to his corner as Bethany Blue takes place on the opposite side of the ring compared to Mark Macias)
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: The match is underwa… OOOF! Terry Chambers wasting no time here, he just ran through his opponent and completely floored him. Now Limmy Monaghan is holding his neck, completely stunned, he wasn’t expecting this type of aggression from Terry Chambers early on in the match!
James Peters: To be completely honest with you, Limmy Monaghan has been running his mouth quite a lot this week so I’m not sure it was a wise choice! Now the Barbaric Carnivore is angry and look! Terry is right back on the attack, he grabbed the leg of Limmy and he has just thrown him all the way across the ring! This is insane!
Rich Russillo: Well, not much he can do now. Terry’s offense is perfectly legal. He has now positioned his opponent in the corner, wrapping Limmy’s around the top rope and… OUCH! THAT CHOP ECHOED THROUGHOUT THE ARENA! He is going to feel that in the morning. Oh no, looks like Terry Chambers is not done yet… The Barbaric Carnivore has taken a few steps back and he is now charging in… WHAT A SPLASH! LIMMY JUST GOT FLATTENED AGAINST THE CORNER BY AN IMPOSING RUNNING SPLASH BY TERRY CHAMBERS.
Rich Russillo: Limmy Monaghan is now sitting in the corner, that’s definitely a position you don’t want to be in when you are up against Terry Chambers…. Terry charges in for a second time! CORNER CANNONBALL CONNECTED TO PERFECTION! HE GOES FOR AN EARLY PIN ATTEMPT….
James Peters: No! Limmy got the shoulder up! If Terry Chambers keeps this up, I’m afraid there won’t be much of Limmy to salvage when this match is over. Anyways, Terry is trying to keep the advantage but… oh, wait a minute! Limmy Monaghan has decided to take a “break” and he just rolled out of the ring. He is making a T sign with his hands, apparently asking for a timeout. Are you serious? There are no timeouts in wrestling, my friend.
Persephone: The problem is, if Terry Chambers decides to go after him, he might just say goodbye to his stamina. I’m not sure someone like him could survive entering and exiting the ring more than once a week!
Rich Russillo: How dare you? Terry is a professional and he has the cardio of a marathoner. Look! Just as I thought, he has now rolled outside the ring and he is going after Limmy Monaghan who is running away from him! Oh my God, I cannot believe this is happening for real. Limmy Monaghan is running in a circle around the ring as Terry Chambers is right after him! This is crazy!
(Both Dr. Bethany Blue and Mark Macias get out of the way to make sure he two competitors don’t run over them)
Rich Russillo: Limmy Monaghan FINALLY slides back into the ring after four consecutive laps around the ring, Terry Chambers is right behind him! But Limmy manages to catch him off guard as he was trying to get back inside the ring! The smart move pulled by Limmy ultimately worked out for him in the end as he successfully managed to put the big man down.
James Peters: Now comes the hard part, he has to keep Terry Chambers grounded and never lose control of the fight and it’s not an easy task. Limmy tries with a frenetic flurry of blows but Terry is already back to his knees! He has to come up with something quick! Limmy runs to the ropes, bounces off and… HE HITS TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A SLING BLADE JUST AS THE BIG MAN WAS ABOUT TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! INCREDIBLE ATHLETICISM FROM LIMMY MONAGHAN WHO IS NOT DONE YET. HE IS STALKING TERRY CHAMBERS WHO IS STUMBLING BACK TO HIS FEET… BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! THIS TIME CHAMBERS IS OUT FOR GOOD… COVER!
Rich Russillo: Noooo! Kickout! Limmy Monaghan can’t believe it! He thought he had Terry Chambers stunned! He is now applying a tight headlock right in the middle of the ring, Terry is gasping for air as Limmy’s arm is firmly wrapped around his neck, cutting the oxygen flow to his brain!
Mark Macias (Off mic): Limmy is showing exactly why we are going to win at Fighting Spirit. We are GRAND ATHLETES! You can’t touch us!
James Peters: Terry Chambers is in a tough predicament right now, he has to find a way to fight back and escape the hold! Limmy Monaghan is doing a great job, he found a way to turn things around and limit Terry’s mobility. It won’t be easy to keep him grounded for long, though. Terry is already back to his knees, he is trying to break free… Ouch, stiff elbow to the guts of Limmy as one half of the Grand Athletes has no choice but to release the hold! Limmy Monaghan charges in but Terry Chambers catched him just in time! MASSIVE SAMOAN DROP FROM TERRY CHAMBERS WHO GOES FOR THE COVER…
Rich Russillo: Eh, I think you spoke too soon. Terry is still gasping for air, I’m not sure he has enough strength to follow up to the Samoan Drop. Limmy Monaghan looks down and out, I think Terry just squandered a big opportunity to end the match right here.
Mark Macias (Off mic): So much for being the Barbaric Carnivore… More like the “No Cardio” Carnivore.
James Peters: Both men are struggling to get back to their feet but somehow they do. Limmy is not holding back at all, and is right on top of Terry Chambers as he attacks him with a forearm shot to the face. Terry doesn’t seem to be affected that much though, he is still perfectly standing. Limmy goes for his signature Superkick! No! Terry catched him and now he has a firm grip of his left leg! This is NOT the position Limmy wants to be!
Rich Russillo: Terry smiles as he knows what’s about to happen! It’s payback time! Terry crouches and puts Limmy’s leg over his shoulder, then pops him up with an incredible show of raw power in a Powerbomb position. OH NO… TERRY CHAMBERS RUNS TOWARDS THE CORNER AND LAUNCHES LIMMY MONAGHAN IN THE AIR, AS LIMMY CRASHES INTO THE CORNER! TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB CONNECTED TO PERFECTION!
James Peters: Hold up just a second! Limmy Monaghan is still standing! The poor guy is completely out of it but he is still on his feet! Terry! Terry runs towards the ropes, bounces off them and DECAPITATES LIMMY MONAGHAN WITH A MASSIVE BIG BOOT! HOLY MOLY! IS HE DEAD?! THE COVER….
Mark Macias: KICKOUT! KICKOUT, LIMMY!
Rich Russillo: Kickout by Limmy Monaghan! The match continues!
Mark Macias (Off mic): Ahhhhh! Yes! That’s my man!
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic to Mark Macias): Wanna talk about “Cardio” some more or would you rather just shut up completely from now on?
James Peters: Terry Chambers is now looking directly at Mark Macias, almost as if what just happened to his friend Limmy is supposed to be a warning for him, a preview of things to come. Mark Macias is not impressed at all, he continues to laugh at Terry! This guy just doesn’t care!
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): Focus, Terrence! Stop getting distracted! You have a job to do!
Rich Russillo: I don’t think Terry is even listening at this point… HEY WAIT A MINUTE, LIMMY MONAGHAN FROM BEHIND! HE ROLLS TERRY CHAMBERS UP, HE IS TRYING TO STEAL ONE HERE! OFF THE DISTRACTION… THE COVER…
Rich Russillo: Kickout! Terry kickouts just in time and he gets right back to his feet, ready to put Limmy down for good but hey! Limmy has places his hand between the two!
Limmy Monaghan (Off mic): STOP!
James Peters: Terry suddenly stops, he is confused! ENZIGURI KICK BY LIMMY MONAGHAN! TERRY CHAMBERS STUMBLES ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE CORNER BUT SOMEHOW HE IS STILL STANDING! HE ONCE AGAIN FELL VICTIM OF LIMMY’S MIND GAMES!
Persephone: Dumb and Dumber: Voltage edition.
Rich Russillo: Now Limmy has the advantage and he has to make the most out of this situation. He grabs Terry’s wrist and tries to… Irish Whip? What the heck is he thinking here? Terry Chambers seems like an immovable mountain, Limmy just can’t phase him one bit. Now is Terry the one attacking, he manages to fend him off with a forearm to the face and then he launches him all the way to the opposite corner! Limmy Monaghan is stunned… TERRY CHAMBERS CARGHES IN… CCS ENZIGURI! HE RESPONDED TO LIMMY WITH AN ENZIGURI OF HIS OWN! NOW HE GOES FOR THE COVER….
Rich Russillo: IT’S OVER, TERRY WINS! NO WAIT! MARK MACIAS JUST PUT THE LEG OF LIMMY OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE! THE COUNT WAS NOT LEGAL! BETHANY BLUE IS LIVID AND SO IS TERRY CHAMBERS, MEANWHILE MARK MACIAS IS JUMPING UP AND DOWN LIKE A LITTLE CHILD ON CHRISTMAS EVE.
James Peters: I swear, if Mark Macias keeps playing with fire like that, at some point Bethany is going to make him pay. And if she doesn’t, well, the Barbaric Carnivore will! Terry Chambers is still in complete control though, he wants to end this match once and for all. Terry Chambers is stalking Limmy Monaghan as he gets back to his feet… Terry Chambers picks him up, he is trying to hit the T 5 but Limmy wants none of that! He is fighting back with a series of elbow shots to the head of Terry! Terry has to let him go…
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers is stunned and now Limmy Monaghan is free! Limmy runs to the ropes and YES! HE JUST NAILED TERRY WITH THE FRONT FLIP DDT, I THINK THIS HAS TO BE IT, TERRY IS DOWN AND OUT! LIMMY MONAGHAN CRAWLS INTO THE COVER, I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS….
James Peters: Kickout by Terry! He is still in this match! I thought that was it!
(Mark Macias slaps the apron in desperation)
Rich Russillo: Limmy Monaghan was so close to pulling an upset win here tonight, can you imagine how big of an upset it would be if he managed to put Terry Chambers away? He has to stay on him now, he cannot quit! Limmy Monaghan is now trying to pick Terry Chambers up but… he just can’t! He can’t lift all that dead weight! Limmy is struggling, but now Terry is also getting some strength left in him! He is finally back to his knees! Limmy Monaghan has to go for the kill now! It’s now or never!
James Peters: Terry is still stunned, he is still on his knees as Limmy Monaghan runs to the ropes, he is going to him with his running meteora! NO! WAIT A MINUTE! BETHANY JUST GRABBED HIS FOOT AND HE STOPPED HIM IN HIS TRACKS! NOW LIMMY IS DISTRACTED AS HE IS YELLING AT HER!
Limmy Monaghan (Off mic): What the hell do you think you are doing?!
(Dr. Bethany Blue takes a few steps back and looks away, as if nothing ever happened)
Rich Russillo: Terry! He is back to his feet! LIMMY MONAGHAN JUST GOT CAUGHT, TERRY CHAMBERS PICKS HIM UP IN THE T 5…HE IS GOING TO END HIM RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! TERRY GOES FOR IT… NO! LIMMY MONAGHAN MIRACULOUSLY LANDS ON HIS FEET, I CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT I HAVE JUST WITNESSED! TERRY IS JUST AS STUNNED AS WE ARE… SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK BY LIMMY MONAGHAN! TERRY IS STILL STANDING BUT HE IS OUT OF IT, HE IS ABOUT TO COLLAPSE… LIMMY RUNS TO THE ROPES AND CHARGES IN YET AGAIN… BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! HE KILLED HIM. THE MATCH IS OVER… THE REFEREE IS COUNTING….
James Peters: Kickout by Terry Chambers! That was so close, I cannot believe this match is still going! Terry is somehow still alive! Limmy Monaghan is desperate now, he does not know what else he is supposed to do to put the big man away. Limmy now is on the apron, waiting for Terry to get back to his feet… I don’t like the looks of this. I guess desperate times call for desperate measures! Limmy Monaghan is thinking Springboard Tornado DDT here… he calls it The Rocketman. Limmy leaps in the air…. TERRY IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE CATCHES HIM IN MID AIR! TERRY CHAMBERS WITH SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH HERE MANAGES TO GET A HOLD OF LIMMY MONAGHAN WITHOUT DROPPING TO THE MAT. OH NO… HE IS NOW TRANSITIONING HIM INTO A FIREMANS CARRY POSITION… LIMMY IS CAUGHT! TERRY GOES FOR THE T 5 YET AGAIN, BUT LIMMY IS FIGHTING BACK, LIMMY IS DELIVERING ELBOW SHOTS TO THE FACE OF TERRY CHAMBERS, HE KNOWS THAT THE END IS NEAR FOR HIM!
Rich Russillo: LIMMY MONAGHAN SOMEHOW FREES HIMSELF FOR THE THIRD CONSECUTIVE TIME, HE LANDS BEHIND TERRY! TERRY IS CONFUSED, LIMMY HITS HIM WITH A NASTY KICK TO THE SHIN, AS TERRY IS FORCED TO HIS KNEES… LIMMY SEES AN OPENING, HE RUNS TO THE ROPES YET AGAIN, THIS TIME BETHANY CANNOT INTERFERE… LIMMY MONAGHAN WITH THE RUNNING METEORA! HE FINALLY HIT IT! TERRY CHAMBERS GOT LAID OUT BY THE URAVITY AS LIMMY GOES FOR THE COVER….
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! KICKOUT! TERRY SOMEHOW, SOME WAY MANAGED TO SURVIVE THE URAVITY! OH MY GOD THAT WAS SO CLOSE! LIMMY MONAGHAN CANNOT BELIEVE IT, HE WAS JUST A FEW SECONDS AWAY FROM BEATING TERRY CHAMBERS AND GIVE THE GRAND ATHLETES AN INSANE BOOST OF MOMENTUM AHEAD OF FIGHTING SPIRIT.
James Peters: Both athletes are now laid out on the mat, they are both incapacitated, I don’t think they are even able to move at this point. Limmy Monaghan with the strength he has left is trying to pick Chambers up… but he is too heavy for him, there’s almost a 100 pounds difference between the two… Terry is back to his feet… NO! TERRY CHAMBERS JUST GRABBED LIMMY MONAGHAN OUT OF NOWHERE! HE LIFTS HIM UP…. T 5!!! T 5 CONNECTED TO PERFECTION, LIMMY MONAGHAN IS DOWN AND OUT… ALL TERRY HAS TO DO IS TO COVER HIM UP!
Rich Russillo: IT’S OVER! NO WAIT A MINUTE! MARK MACIAS HAS JUST DRAGGED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING JUST A MOMENT BEFORE HIS HAND WAS GOING TO TOUCH THE MAT FOR THE THREE COUNT! NOW DR. BETHANY BLUE CANNOT CONTAIN HERSELF ANYMORE AND SHE IS RUSHING TOWARDS HIM, TACKLING HIM DOWN AND JUST POUNDING HIM WITH STRIKES! CHAOS AT RINGSIDE AS TERRY CHAMBERS THOUGHT HE HAD THE MATCH WON!
James Peters: NOW TERRY IS INFURIATED! HE EXISTS THE RING AND RUSHES TOWARDS DR BETHANY BLUE, PRYING HER OFF MACIAS AND PUSHING HER AWAY! BETHANY LOOKS BACK AT HIM WITH FIRE IN HER EYES!
Dr. Bethany Blue(Off mic): WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING TERRENCE!?
Rich Russillo: TERRY AND BETHANY ARE ARGUING AS… NOOOOOOOOO! LIMMY MONAGHAN HAS JUST HIT BOTH BETHANY AND TERRY WITH A FLYING PESCADO TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! COMPLETE CHAOS! NOW ALL FOUR OF THE FIGHTING SPIRIT OPPONENTS ARE GOING AT IT AT RINGSIDE! LIMMY IS POUNDING ON TERRY, BETHANY IS TRYING TO PUSH HIM OFF BUT MARK MACIAS IS NOW BACK IN THE FIGHT TOO… AND OH NO!
Persephone: Here comes the cavalry!
James Peters: THE SECURITY IS OUT HERE AND THEY ARE TRYING TO DIVIDE THE FOUR ELITISTS BEFORE THEY SERIOUSLY HURT EACH OTHER! WE ARE JUST SEVEN DAYS AWAY FROM THEIR MATCH AND IF THIS IS AN INDICATION OF WHAT WE ARE GOING TO WITNESS… THEN COUNT ME IN! IT IS GOING TO BE WILD!
Rich Russillo: THE MATCH ENDED IN A NO CONTEST AS THERE IS NO WAY FOR THE REFEREE TO TAKE BACK CONTROL OF THE ACTION! I need a breather….

(Voltage returns to ringside where Bella is seen in the middle of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… Charlie Marr!
(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta begins to play inside the building and after a moment, Charlie and Jordie step out onto the stage. Jordie is holding onto her man, looking at him like he is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but Charlie has a rather intense look in his eyes. In just six days, his long rivalry with Jack Ripley will finally come to an end. They will have one final match and hopefully all their issues with one another will finally get put to bed. Jordie walks up the steps and sits down on the ropes, letting her man inside. Bella passes the microphone off to Charlie before exiting the ring, and as Charlie’s music fades, the sexy bearded hottie paces around the ring.)
Charlie Marr: It’s Pain for Pride season and quite frankly, I’m disgusted that I’m being forced to waste my time with Jack Ripley once again. We already know that I’m going to beat his ass and fucking kill him, and I keep going back and forth in my head as to whether or not I really want to do something like that. You see, my wife has a heart of gold, and even though I don’t approve of this, she still loves her shitty big brother. Jordie cares about Jack, and she doesn’t want to see him permanently crippled at my hands. She also cares about her parents, and she doesn’t want to see them bury a child. No parent should ever have to bury a child, and I find myself wondering whether or not this match is even worth it. Believe it or not, I do care about Jordie and her feelings, and by hurting Jack, I hurt her. I don’t have time for tears or anything like that with it being Pain for Pride season and the fact that dumb fuck Malcolm Jones is waiting around every corner to seemingly screw me over. I know Jordie is going to be distraught if I kill Jack in front of her eyes.
Jordie Marr (Off Mic): I would never want to upset you in any way, baby. Jack is my blood though…
Charlie Marr: And you’re a Marr now, not a fucking Ripley, but I digress. The point is, despite all the things Jack has said about Jordie. Despite all the things he did to her in their ‘match’ the other week. Despite all the fucking lies and all the other bullshit he’s spewed, I’ve come to the decision that for the sake of my wife and her ungrateful family, that I would rather not compete against Jack Ripley come Fighting Spirit. If anything ever goes down between the two of us in the future, it will likely be as tag team partners because despite the fuckery and Malcolm determined to screw us over last week, we worked well as a team. Obviously, I’m too big for the tag team division, but I know Jack is not and perhaps it’s something we can discuss in the future. For now, I’m going to take the next few weeks off and get my mind set for Pain for Pride, and ending the career of Malcolm Jones once and for all. At this point, Voltage doesn’t deserve me on weekly television, and it damn sure doesn’t deserve to have me as part of Fighting Spirit. It deserves to sink and suffer, because fuck any brand that doesn’t want to treat Charlie Marr like the star he is. I know the Fighting Spirit poster advertises Jack and myself, but whatever. I won’t be in Omaha.
???: Yes the fuck you will.
(Jack Ripley walks onto the stage, microphone in hand. As he makes his way to the ring, he continues talking.)
Charlie Marr: Look, I’m doing you a fucking favor…
Jack Ripley: You are so full of shit it makes me sick. This match is happening and you’re not going to pussy out of it. Don’t fucking try and tell any of us that you give a damn about Jordie’s feelings, or anyone else’s other than yours. It’s a fact that I’ve had your number since our very first encounter and you just don’t want to suffer a loss before you head into Pain for Pride and get your ass handed to you by Malcolm.
(Jack gets into the ring and stands in front of Charlie, and the tension in the ring is palpable. There is no love lost whatsoever between these two and it’s mindblowing that they managed to somehow function as a team last week.)
Jack Ripley: You destroyed my chance to win the EAW World Championship at Road to Redemption, and cost me a few months of my career. I’m going to make sure that at Fighting Spirit you get a dose of your own medicine, and you leave Omaha crippled and with any luck, unable to even compete at Pain for Pride.
Charlie Marr: You doing any sort of damage to me that will keep me from winning at Pain for Pride is never going to happen. You aren’t fucking good enough to do that, and I don’t know why you want to blame lil ole me for costing you a chance to win a world championship. If you were as good as you think you are, you would have won a world title ages ago. Didn’t you have a chance to do that back when you were on Dynasty? I know you were nothing but a bag carrier for Theron and DEDEDE, but I’m pretty sure you ended up facing Darkane for the Answers World Championship back at Revolution like two years ago. You lost cleanly to a fucking turncoat with mental issues who got gifted a charity championship for no other reason except for the fact he was fucking loyal… supposedly :mjgrin:, and honestly that really just sums up your entire career as a solo act. You constantly come up short when it matters the most, and that’s because at the end of the day, you can’t stand on your own two fe-
James Peters: YOU’LL FLOAT TOO! JACK’S HEARD ENOUGH!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DUCKS AND JACK CONNECTS WITH JORDIE! JORDIE MARR IS OUT COLD AND CHARLIE SLIPS FROM THE RING! JACK QUICKLY LAUNCHES HIMSELF THROUGH THE ROPES AND CATCHES CHARLIE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! HE IS UNLOADING ON HIM, BUT CHARLIE IS QUICK TO THROW JACK TO THE SIDE! JACK CHASES CHARLIE UP THE RAMP AND GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND!
Persephone: CHARING CROSS! CHARLIE JUST CAUGHT JACK WITH THE CHARING CROSS! NOW HE HAS JACK AND HE THROWS HIM OFF THE STAGE! LMAOOOO!!! OMG LOOK AT THE EXPLOSION!!!!
Rich Russillo: :damn:! Holy shit!
(There is indeed an explosion as Jack Ripley lands in a pile of equipment. Charlie looks down at the carnage with a smirk on his face as officials and members of the EAW medical team come rushing out to check on Jack.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Benadryl.)
(When Voltage returns it cuts right to the ring area.)
( “Bow Down” by I Prevail hits through the speakers and brings out the uber-talented Seth Osiris out to the stage. He takes a deep breath before stomping down towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From the swamps of Louisiana, weighing in at 212 pounds…. SSSSSSEEEEEEEEEETTHHHHHHHHH OOOOOOOSSSSIRRRRRRIISSSSSS!!!!
James Peters: This is an interesting competitor right here. He initially worked job-to-job as a therapist and morgue worker at local hospitals before he decided to begin his professional wrestling tenure. With this experience as a morgue worker, he is going guns blazing into this match fearless and with the experience as a therapist, he knows very wall what’s transpiring within the minds of both of his adversaries tonight. Osiris has huge advantage when it comes to his mental status, but he is also the biggest competitor in this match.
( As Seth Osiris gets comfortable in his appointed corner of the ring, ‘La Guayaba’ by Ricchie Oriach blasts through the speakers. SEBAS makes his appearance on the entranceway and glances straight at the squared circle before making his way towards. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENTS! FIRST! From Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in at 205 pounds….. SEBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
Rich Russillo: SEBAS has made an emphatic impact here in the Voltage and there is only time that he gets an opportunity at the big on. From his looks, to his talent, to his charisma, SEBAS is the whole, entire package.
Persephone: I guess you can say this guy is the entire package, but he’s not as good looking as Rexy Sexy. Speaking of packages… Rex’s package just makes me salivate….
James Peters: Package? Did he buy you something on Amazon or something?
Persephone: No… His di-
( ‘Land Of The Innocent’ by Feathers cuts Persephone and echoes throughout the EAW Performance Center and prompts for Sarah Price to step out to the stage. She unfastens and holds up her EAW Specialist Championship high up in the air before valiantly striding through the entranceway and into the squared circle. )
Bella Braxton: AND! From London, England, weighing in at 121 pounds… SHE IS THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION…… SAAAARRRRRAAAHHHHHHH PRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICEEE!!
Persephone: D- James Peters: Earlier I stated that Seth Osiris possesses all the components to victory coming into this match. With this size, it should put him a higher advantage than much smaller competitors such as Sarah Price. However, Sarah Price has proven time-and-time again that she is not a force to be reckoned with and she’s willing to play against the odds tonight before her tag team match alongside Drake King. I mean, there’s a reason why she’s the reigning EAW Specialist Champions
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: This match is underway as all three competitors are spread out in the ring, staring into each other as they look to see who will attempt the first move. Sarah Price, Seth Osiris, and SEBAS about to put on a wrestling clinic and woah.. Sarah Price and SEBAS are both shifting their eyes onto Seth Osiris.. Peters, you did say Seth was the biggest individual, but being the biggest means you’ll have the biggest target in that match, and Seth Osiris is about to be the receiving end of a handicap!
James Peters: Osiris taunting at them to bring every ounce of fight in them they’ve got BEFORE PRICE AND SEBAS CHARGE INTO HIM!! THEY SIMULTANEOUSLY SWING FORWARD A CLOTHESLINE, BUT OSIRIS MANAGES TO DODGE THEIR ARMS AND ROLL INTO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING!! Both Price and Sebas looked shocked by the athletic ability of the bigger Osiris before THEY GET LAUNCHED OUT OF THE RING WITH A DEVASTATING SHOTGUN DROPKICK FROM THE LOUISIANA NATIVE!!
Persephone: How stupid do you have to be to make such a mistake? You should never underestimate a force such as Seth Orisis. Like, how in the hell is Sarah Price is the current Specialists Champion? Ain’t nothing special about this slut.
Rich Russillo: LOOK!! SETH OSIRIS IS RUNNING THE ROPES!! PRICE AND SEBAS ARE RECUPERATING AT RINGSIDE AND ARE ABOUT TO HAVE TWO-HUNDRED AND TWELVE POUNDS SQUASH THEM AGAINST THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!! BUT SEBAS SLIDES INTO THE RING IN TIME AND LANDS A PERFECTLY PLACED BOOT TO THE FACE!!
James Peters: Seth Osiris is stunned by the kick as SEBAS grabs his arm and Irish whips him into the ropes. Osiris rebounds off the ropes while SEBAS leans over.. OSIRIS JUMPS OVER HIS BACK AND PULLS HIM DOWN WITH A SUNSET FLIP! SEBAS FAILED THE TELEGRAPH BACKBODY DROP, BUT HE USES THE MOMENTUM OF THE SUNSET FLIP TO ROLL ONTO HIS FEET!! PK!!!
Rich Russillo: SEBAS MISSES THE PENALTY KICK AND OSIRIS SHOOTS OFF THE GROUND AND GRABS HIS NECK!! INVERTED DDT!! NO!! SEBAS TAKES OSIRIS DOWN OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND NAILS HIM WITH A PICTURE-PERFECT DROPKICK THAT SENDS OSIRIS REELING THROUGH THE ROPES.
Persephone: Osiris recalibrating while SEBAS runs the ropes! OSIRIS STOPS HIM IN HIS TRACKS WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!! SEBAS falters into the middle of the ring! Price returns to action and attempts to sweep Osiris’ legs from under. Seth Osiris hops over his arms, but HIS HEAD IS DRIVEN INTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING AS PRICE TOOK OUT HIS FOUNDATION WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! Osiris is laid out on the apron while SEBAS SLIDES DOWN AND BASEMENT SLIDE DROPKICKS OSIRIS INTO PRICE!! OSIRIS GOES FLYING FROM THE DROPKICK INTO SARAH PRICE!!
James Peters: An innovative way to take out both of his individuals as SEBAS grips both his hands on the top rope.. Price and Osiris are emerging up to their feet while SEBAS FLOATS OVER THE TOP ROPE!! ROPE-ASSISTED CROSSBODY PLANCHA!! NO!! SEBAS LANDS ON HIS FEET AS BOTH OF THEM SIDESTEPPED HIM!!
Rich Russillo: SEBAS DUCKS PRICE!! OSIRIS CLOCKS THE CHAMPION WITH A YAKUZA KICK! Price wobbles into SEBAS direction! IT ALLOWS FOR HIM TO SNATCH PRICE HEAD, STEP OFF THE BARRICADE AND SPIN AROUND FOR A TORNADO DDT!! NO!! PRICE LETS GO OF SEBAS AND HE GOES NOSE-DIVING INTO THE RINGPOST!! OUCH!!
Persephone: DON’T FORGET ABOUT OSIRIS!! SETH COILS HIS ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF PRICE AND PLANTS THE SLUT WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! WAIT!! SHE LANDS ONTO HER FEET!! OSIRIS IS CLUELESS AS PRICE STEPS UP THE STEEL STEPS AND FLOORS HIM WITH A SMOOTH MOONSAULT!!
James Peters: Osiris is down-and-out as Price rolls him under the bottom rope and back into the ring. She steps onto the apron and leaps onto the top rope! BUT AT THE SAME TIME SEBAS SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ADJACENT ROPES!! HE TWISTS AND DROPKICKS PRICE’S LEGS WHILE ALSO MOONSAULTING OVER ONTO OSIRIS!!
Rich Russillo: OSIRIS CATCHES SEBAS!! Sarah Price’s midsection went crash landing into the top rope, but the combination didn’t complete as Osiris is carrying Sebas on his shoulders! OSIRIS SPINS HIM AROUND! SEBAS ATTEMPTS TO COUNTER IT INTO A TILT-A-WHIRL DDT BUT OSIRIS HOLDS ONTO HIM!! OSIRIS SAW IT COMING AS HE HOISTS HIM UP INTO A SUPLEX! TWISTS… AND DRIVES HIS SKULL INTO THE CANVAS WITH A TWISTING BRAINBUSTER!! HE ROLLS HIM OVER FOR THE FIRST PINFALL!!
Persephone: DOUBLE AXE HANDLE TO THE BACK OF OSIRIS!! The slut breaks up the cover as she pulls Osiris up to his feet and irish whips him into the corner! OSIRIS CRASHES INTO THE CORNER WHILE PRICE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A HUGE CORNER FOREARM!! BUT OSIRIS CIRCLES AROUND HER WAIST IN MID-AIR AND DROPS HER ONTO THE BACK OFF HER NECK WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!!
James Peters: Sarah Price doesn’t evade the german suplex this time as Seth Osiris has her in his sights! SETH CHARGES OFF THE CORNER- SEBAS INTERCEPTS WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! OSIRIS’ JAW IS ROCKED AS SEBAS PULLS HIM IN FOR A SUPLEX!! OSIRIS DROPS DOWN FOR A CRADLE PIN!! BUT SEBAS QUICKLY ESCAPES OUT OF IT, HOLDS ONTO HIS HAND AND SNAPS IT IN HALF!!
Rich Russillo: Sebas has a thing for fingers now as he turns around to the sight of the incoming Sarah Price! SEBAS CIRCLES AROUND HER WAIST AND SNATCHES HER LEFT HAND!! PRICE IN DISTRESS BEFORE ATTEMPTING A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! SEBAS DUCKS THE FOOT AND USES THE OPPORTUNITY TO LIFT HER UP INTO A PUMP HANDLE!!
Persephone: NO!! PRICE ESCAPES THE PUMP HANDLE PREDICAMENT OVER HIS SHOULDERS! PRICE THRUSTS HIM FORWARD FROM BEHIND AND SEBAS RUNS RIGHT INTO A BACK BODY DROP FROM OSIRIS!!
James Peters: What power achieved from Osiris as he was able to elevate SEBAS HIGH, HIGH, HIGH UP INTO THE SKIES!! Osiris fixates his attention towards Price and charges into her! Price gets her foot up! Osiris grabs her foot and flips her over. Price uses the top rope to safely land onto the apron before OSIRIS GOES FOR A SHOULDER THRUST BETWEEN THE ROPES!! Price effectively blocks it with a knee strike before floating over the top rope and bringing him down into a sunset pin!
Persephone: SETH TILTS OVER AND PINS HER DOWN!!
Rich Russillo: PRICE POWERS OUT, BUT OSIRIS USES HER MOMENTUM TO DEADLIFT HER OFF THE GROUND WITH THE SUNSET ROLL AND DRIVE HER DOWN UNPROTECTEd WITH A SUNSET DRIVER!! WHAT A DRIVER AS HE NOW SITS ON HER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
ONE!!!! TWOOOOO!!!! T-
James Peters: KICK-OUT!! Sarah Price is able to get her shoulder up and prove why she is the EAW Specialist Champion, but I don’t think that reputation will uphold after Seth Osiris connects with this! OSIRIS SPINS AROUND AND DECKS THE CHAMPION WITH A HUGE CYCLONE KICK!! A DISCUS BIG BOOT, BUT IT ONLY SENDS PRICE ONTO HER KNEES!!
Rich Russillo: Seth Osiris can’t believe the tenacity of Sarah Price as he looks like a man possessed! He signals for the end before running the ropes! SEBAS PULLS THE TOP ROPE DOWN AND OSIRIS SPLATTERS ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! Osiris is momentarily eliminated and gives the opportunity for SEBAS to move to the middle of the apron and leap off the top rope! SPRINGBOARDDDDDD!!! SUPPPPERKICKKK!!!
Persephone: BUT SEBAS CATCHES THE SLUT’S FOOT!! SEBAS SAW THE SUPERKICK IN MID-AIR SCOUTED AS SARAH PRICE CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! SEBAS SPINS HER AROUND AND CLOCKS HER WITH A HUGE JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!! HER JAW HAS BEEN SHATTERED AS SEBAS NOW LOOKS TO REBOUND OFF THE ROPES!!
James Peters: Seth Osiris returns the favour and grabs SEBAS legs! SEBAS goes face-first into the mat before OSIRIS pulls him out of the ring. SEBAS is now clinging onto the bottom rope for dear life while OSIRIS struggles to get him off the ropes! SARAH PRICE NOW RUNNING THE ROPES!! AND TAKE OUT OSIRIS WITH A SUICIDE DIVE INTO A CANNONBALL DIVE!!
Rich Russillo: Price forces Osiris to release SEBAS with that dive, but SEBAS IS NOW RUNNING THE ROPES INSIDE THE SQUARED CIRCLE!! HE SOARS OVER THE TOP ROPE!! AND CRASHES DOWN ONTO BOTH PRICE AND OSIRIS WITH A SENSATIONAL TOPE CON GIRO!! WHAT A TOPE CON GIRO AS SEBAS NOW BRINGS THE EAW SPECIALIST CHAMPIONSHIP INTO THE RING!! THE DOMINICAN SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND FLATTENS SARAH PRICE WITH A CORKSCREW CROSS BODY!! COVER SIDEPRESS!!
Persephone: THE SLUT POPS HER SHOULDER UP! SEBAS can’t believe it as he gingerly pulls Price up to her feet.. SEBAS SHRUGS HER A COUPLE OF STEPS AWAY BEFORE LEAPING UP!! DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER!! NO!! PRICE HOLDS ONTO HIS LEGS, POPS HIM UP AND KICKS THE MIDSECTION!! SHE DANCES FOR THE DANCE WITH THE PRINCESS!!
James Peters: BUT SEBAS THRUSTS HER AWAY!! PRICE RICOCHETS BACK AND EATS A SUPERKICK TO THE FACE!! TALK ABOUT HAVING A TASTE OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE AS PRICE NOW FALTERS INTO THE CORNER.. Osiris slides back into the ring while SEBAS jumps onto Price in the corner and tries to bring her down with the monkey flip!
Rich Russillo: Price uses her underrated strength and holds onto SEBAS! She carries him around the ring before OSIRIS COMES OFF THE CORNER AND NAILS HER IN THE BACK WITH A DROPKICK!! THIS ALLOWS SEBAS TO FINALLY BRING HER DOWN AND MONKEY FLIP HER INTO THE CORNER!! AND PRICE GOES FACE-FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!! MY GOD!! SHE MAY BE CONCUSSED!!
James Peters: Having a concussion before her tag team match against The Unique Ones is not good! SEBAS is flabbergasted on how he was able to succeed with that monkey flip while OSIRIS CHARGES INTO HIM! SEBAS SIDESTEPS HIM! OSIRIS ADAPTS WHILE RUNNING AND DRIVES SARAH PRICE’S HEAD FURTHER INTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH A DOUBLE-KNEE METEORA!!
Persephone: SEBAS NOW COMES FROM BEHIND!! OSIRIS DODGES OUT OF THE WAY AND SEBAS CRASHES INTO PRICE WITH A CANNONBALL!! CLEAR THE DECK FOR THE DOMINICAN AS SARAH PRICE KEEPS GETTING PUMMELLED AS SHE SHOULD!!
Rich Russillo: OSIRIS GRABS SEBAS WAIST FROM BEHIND AND DEADLIFTS HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! AND SEBAS FORCES HIM TO RELINQUISH THE HOLD WITH BACK ELBOWS!! SEBAS WITH A SUPERKICK!! THE SUPERKICK CONNECTED RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW AS OSIRIS REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! AND STRIKES HIM WITH A YAKUZA KICK!! AND FOLLOWS UP WITH ANOTHER ONE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!
James Peters: SEBAS REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES FACE-FIRST AND TURNS HIM INSIDE OUT WITH A LARIAT!! A DEVASTATING LARIAT FROM THE BICEPS OF THE DOMINICAN AS HE NOW PULLS SETH OSIRIS UP TO HIS FEET!! HE HOOKS THE ARMS!! AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER!! NO!! OSIRIS ROLLS HIM DOWN!!!
ONE….. TWO….. THE-
Persephone: POWER OUT!! BOTH INDIVIDUALS GET UP BUT SEBAS GETS A HANDFUL OF SETH’S LEFT FINGERS!! SETH SCREAMS IN PAIN BEFORE SEBAS ADVANCES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! OSIRIS DUCKS THE FOOT AND HOISTS SEBAS UP INTO A PUMP HANDLE! OH NO!!! GOD’S GREAT GRIMACE!! NO!! SCHRODINGER’SSSSSSS PARRAAAADOXXXXXXX!! COVER!!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Rich Russillo: OSIRIS POPS HIS SHOULDER UP!! SEBAS was just now able to counter his patented Pumphandle Small Package Driver into a Small Package Driver of his own! BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH!! SEBAS IS BESIDE HIMSELF AS HE NOW LOOKS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND BEGINS TO CLIMB IT!!
James Peters: SEBAS IS MOUNTED ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HE’S PERCHED WHILE SETH OSIRIS IS DOWN-AND-OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! THIS COULD BE IT!! CAN IT BE !?!! HE SOARS!! SHOOOOOTINNG STARRR ELBOOOW DROPP!!!!!

Persephone: What a stupid move! Rex McAllister would’ve of never made that stupid mistake!
James Peters: Seth Osiris is now preying on the defenceless, possibly injured SEBAS! Osiris with determination in his eyes as he waits for him to get up! BUT LOOK! SEBAS quickly emerges tp to his feet while holding his left shoulder. He’s screaming in agony as he looks eye to eye with Osiris! HE’S TAUNTING OSIRIS!! IS HE CRAZY!! OSIRIS CHARGES INTO HIM!!
Rich Russillo: SEBAS THROWS A RIGHT FIST!! BUT OSIRIS DODGES, CIRCLES AROUND AND BLASTS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A YAKUZA KICK!! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT!! OSIRIS NOW SETTING UP FOR THE PUMPHA-
Persephone: THE SLUT ROLLS OSIRIS UP!! WHERE THE HELL DID SHE COME FROM!?!?
ONEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘Land Of The Innocent’ by Feathers blasts through the speakers and Sarah Price immediately slides out of the ring before Seth Osiris could get to her. The referee hands her the EAW Specialists Championship and raises her hand as Osiris looks at her from the ring livid. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER!!! SAAARRAAHHHHH PRIIICEEE!!
Rich Russillo: Sarah Price shocks the system of Seth Osiris with that school girl roll-up and it does her dividend in this triple threat! That was a smart decision as it was stupid to endure more damage before her scheduled bout at Fighting Spirit. Seth Osiris is livid and understandably so!
James Peters: Seth Osiris was on the cusp of securing this triple-threat victory, but he forgot about the Sarah Price factor and he paid for it! Sarah Price walks out of this hellacious triple threat match with a victory and most importantly, she is heading into Fighting Spirit with the well-needed momentum!
(The camera takes another shot of Sarah celebrating her win before fading elsewhere.)
(Voltage opens backstage and the Interwire Champion, Consuela Rose Ava, is seen sitting on a discarded piece of equipment, with a seemingly frustrated look on her face. She’s obviously not happy about what went down earlier with Jesse, Hannah, and supposedly ‘injured’ Colby Sol. With Gavin thrown in the mix, things had been even more chaotic than they had ever needed to be. However, Consuela’s not alone. Sitting next to her, with a hand on her back is none other than Terry Chambers, who had his own issues earlier with The Grand Athletes and Bethany. He runs his hand up Consuela’s back in a friendly gesture because apparently they are “just friends” and let’s it rest on her shoulder. He gives her shoulder a squeeze before brushing her hair back.)
Terry Chambers: Next weekend is when your match result matters. You know that as well as I do, Ela.
(Consuela blushes a little bit at Terry’s nickname for her and she looks up at him, giving him a shy, but grateful smile. There’s no denying there is some familiarity there between the two, and they seem extremely comfortable around one another. Terry gives Consuela a reassuring smile in return and that seems to put ‘The Perfectionist’ at ease.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I know, and believe me, Colby Sol is going to get what’s coming to him. There is no way I’m letting Colby or Gavin stop me from going into Pain for Pride as a champion. I think that’s what all of us dream of and after everything that’s gone down this season, and just seeing what Cameron is going through right now, knowing she’s not going to get a chance to headline like she wanted this year, it just means more to me than ever, you know?
(Consuela looks down at the Interwire Championship, which is resting in her lap.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Plus, Chloe is of the age where she recognizes me on TV and she knows her mama is a champion. It’s important for me to walk down that aisle with this Interwire Championship and for her to see me doing that. Our whole family needs this, to be honest. I’m not sure if she will admit this or not, but Candice was crushed last night. She wanted to win that No Way Out match more than anything and now it’s not even clear if she’ll have a match at the show. I don’t want to find myself in that position.
(A determined look crosses Consuela’s face.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Winning at Fighting Spirit is the only option.
(Terry can’t help the sigh that escapes from his lips and he almost instantly regrets it. The look of concern that Consuela gives him isn’t one he necessarily wants or needs. He’s prideful and concern sometimes gets misconstrued with pity.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I probably shouldn’t have made this a topic of conversation when your own road to Pain for Pride is pretty up in the air…
Terry Chambers: It’s fine. You don’t have to censor yourself on my accord. I’m going to find a spot on the card, no matter what. I’m not going to let Captain Charisma or anyone else keep me from competing.
(Terry taps the face of the Interwire Championship.)
Terry Chambers: Winning that belt last year didn’t just change my career, it changed my life. Dethroning Drake and seeing how years of struggles and setbacks paid off is something I could never forget. That feeling I got when my hand was raised is indescribable. I still really don’t know how to truly describe the impact that moment had on me. When I got to see my kids and I saw how proud they were of me, that got me deep, Ela. That helped me understand that no matter what I go through here, it’s going to be worth it in the end because I know my kids are going to support me through it all.
Consuela Rose Ava: I know Fighting Spirit is a really messed up situation for you…
(Terry puts his head in his hands and lets out a groan. Talking about his sister is a sore subject at the moment because he doesn’t know how he can possibly get through to Alexis. She’s reached a point where she’s no longer listening to anyone except Jake Smith, and it made the Barbaric Carnivore sick.)
Terry Chambers: I’m sure everything that happened at Odyssey didn’t help matters. Lexi doesn’t see that Jake is using her, and I’ve stopped trying to talk to her about it. You can’t help someone that doesn’t want to be helped, and the whole situation isn’t going to get any better. Bethany already had a screw loose, but this will no doubt shatter her psyche, and I already know she’s not going to be able to keep it together to do her part at Fighting Spirit. Tonight proved that when we were all out there. I can handle The Grand Athletes fine myself, but with Alexis in the building next weekend with a chance to win a huge match that could take her to the next level, AND Bethany hanging around? No.
(Terry shakes his head. He knows it’s not going to be a pretty scene next weekend in Omaha.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Alexis is an adult, and her decisions are her own. Once Fighting Spirit is over with, you can then focus on what matters and that’s finding yourself a match at Pain for Pride.
Terry Chambers: Well the world championship matches are pretty much set, and Captain Charisma has been very tightlipped about any other plans he might have. He’s agreed to meet with me after Fighting Spirit and then I guess we’ll go from there. I know that Pain for Pride always provides a lot of opportunities for everyone, and I know I’ve been extremely vocal about wanting to take the next step in my career.
Consuela Rose Ava: You obviously want to chase a world championship.
(Terry nods his head in agreement, but it’s not lost on Consuela that his eyes are looking down at her Interwire Championship. She doesn’t say anything, because if something goes wrong next weekend, there won’t be anything for her to say. Instead, she swallows her initial reaction and gives Terry another shy look.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I think whatever you decide to do will be the right decision for you in the moment. None of these championships are going anywhere, and if you feel like you have something to prove before you move on to truly take that next step, then there’s no better place to do so than Pain for Pride.
(Terry gives Consuela a surprised look, clearly shocked that she somehow managed to read his mind and see into his soul. It’s never settled well with him how his Interwire Championship reign ended. In Terry’s head, he never actually got a chance to prove himself as Interwire Champion and that’s always going to be something that stays with him unless he takes the steps to rectify it.)
Terry Chambers: You have a point. I will see how the meeting with Captain Charisma goes and keep an open mind.
(Consuela looks down at the Interwire Championship and runs her fingers across the nameplate.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Pain for Pride season, huh?
Terry Chambers: You got that right.
(The two continue talking quietly as Voltage fades to ringside.)
(Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi hits as Dr. Bethany Blue walks out onto the stage. She has an annoyed but determined look on her face as she scans the empty EAW Performance Center. Bethany starts her walk to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL….INTRODUCING FIRST….FROM MIAMI, FLORIDA….WEIGHING IN AT 125 POUNDS…..DDRRRRR BBBBEETTTTHHHAAANNNNNYYYY BBLLUUUEEEEE!!!!!
Rich Russillo: The Doc Is In! What an amazing opportunity this woman has tonight to gain some momentum not only for Fighting Spirit, but for her road to Pain For Pride because she’s facing off with arguably one of Voltage’s top stars. If there’s anybody who can pull this off tonight, it’s her!
Persephone: This lady’s a psycho…I mean, have you seen her on social media?! She’s going nuts over a dude who’s a 6 out of 10 at best, and I’m just being generous. Rex though…..123454343 out of 10!!!! :hearteyes:
(“Scenario” by Pop Smoke hits as Malcolm Jones emerges through the curtain. He takes a deep breath at the top of the stage before making his way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT…FROM HARLEM, NEW YORK…WEIGHING IN AT 230 POUNDS…..MMMAALLLCCCOOLLLMMM JJJOOOONNNEEEESSSSS!!!!!
James Peters: Another person who could use this win as an advantage for themselves on the road to Pain For Pride. There’s no doubt these two are two of Voltage’s best, and a win over the other is something they both want and need right now. Malcolm’s got a lot on his plate with having to face Jaded Hearts next weekend then Barbed Wire Massacre a few weeks after that. I can assure you a competitor like Malcolm ain’t takin the doctor lightly. What do you think Seph?
Persephone: If I plant a handgun in Raven’s bag at the airport, you think Rex will finally dump her when she gets arrested? :oh:
Rich Russillo: :krabs:!!!!! WHAT?!!?
Persephone: NOTHING!! AYYYY A BORING MATCH! LET’S GET GOING WITH IT SHALL WE?!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(Both competitors step to the center of the ring. Malcolm Jones has a shit eating grin on her face as Bethany has a look of anger on her face.)
Dr. Bethany Blue(no mic): YOU OUTTA BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF YOU SEXIST PIG!
Persephone: Oh come on, can we just move on and get this over with already, my Sexy Rexy is in the main event and these two are hogging TV time the more they just stare at each other!
(Malcolm shrugs his shoulders still with a smile on his face as Bethany turns her back to him and walks back to her corner as Malcolm slowly backs up.)
James Peters: And this match is underway! Both Bethany and Malcolm circle the ring, before finally locking up in the center of the ring! Malcolm gets Bethany in a side headlock to start off the match, Malcolm wrenches down on the headlock as the Doctor is trying to find some way out, and after a few seconds Bethany manages to push Malcolm off of her, freeing herself in the process. Malcolm shrugs his shoulders once more as they once again begin to circle! Malcolm and Doc lock up for a second time in a collar and elbow tie-up, Bethany manages to connect with a back suplex and then Bethany transitions to a grounded headlock on Malcolm! It doesn’t take Malcolm long to get back to his feet, as Bethany still has the headlock applied, Malcolm pushes off Bethany and Bethany runs to the ropes and Malcolm leapfrogs in the air and Bethany runs to the opposite ropes–And Malcolm catches her with a high hip toss!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm Jones is wasting no time here now as he goes after the Doctor and throws an uppercut to the jaw of Bethany! The uppercut manages to knock Bethany back a little bit and then Malcolm runs to Bethany and connects this time with a running uppercut and this time it knocks Bethany back into the corner! Malcolm sees Bethany a sitting duck in the corner and he charges at her–But Bethany stops Malcolm in his tracks with a forearm right to the face! Bethany now steps out of the corner and takes a hard swing at Malcolm Jones! But Malcolm ducked under it and throws a hard knife edge chop to Bethany’s chest and Bethany once again finds herself in the corner! Malcolm steps to Bethany and begins throwing several kicks to the midsection of Bethany in the corner trying to wear the doctor down!
James Peters: After several more kicks, Malcolm takes several steps back and leaps at Bethany in the corner–BUT NOBODY HOME! Bethany manages to get out of dodge right there and now she waits for Malcolm to turn around–Malcolm turns around and walks into the arms of Bethany, and Bethany picks him up–FALLAWAY SLAM CONNECTS THAT SENDS MALCOLM TO THE OPPOSITE END OF THE RING! What power there from the Doc! Bethany goes right back on the attack though as she speedwalks to the other end of the ring and she grabs ahold of the top rope and launches herself in the air and begins driving several knees into the rib cage of Malcolm on the mat! Doctor seems really pissed off as she is delivering these knees, you can see it on her face…I wonder why.
Persephone: Oh yeah, cause the cute Chambers stole her man…just like I plan to do when I take Rex away from that piece of garbage Raven! A man like him deserves SO much better!
Rich Russillo: :skip: Anyways, Malcolm manages to get some separation from Bethany as he slides himself out to the outside underneath the bottom rope. Bethany is not going to let Malcolm get away as she exits the ring right away and runs to chase after Malcolm–BUT MALCOLM COUNTERS BETHANY WITH A FLAPJACK AND BETHANY LANDS FACE FIRST ON THE STEEL STEPS! OUCH!! Malcolm slides back into the ring and looks down to the outside area at Bethany starting to stir as she holds her face in pain, Malcolm measures Bethany and he runs to the ropes and Malcolm leaps to the outside–TOPE CON HILO! BUT NO! BETHANY SIDESTEPPED IT AND MALCOLM CRASHES AND BURNS ON THE OUTSIDE FLOOR! WOW, HE LANDED HARD THERE!
James Peters: Bethany shakes off the cobwebs and she doesn’t waste a second as she throws Malcolm back inside the ring and right away goes for a cover!
Persephone: DAMN IT! He kicks out and this match continues on, and now the Doc hops on the backside of Malcolm on the mat and begins raining down shots to the back of Malcolm’s head! Bethany now begins throwing forearms to the back of his head! Malcolm tries covering up the back of his head but that isn’t stopping the Doctor!
James Peters: Bethany gets up to her feet and picks Malcolm up to his feet as well, but Malcolm throws a high knee to the face of Bethany–BUT BETHANY CAUGHT HIS KNEE!! DRAGONSCREW FROM BETHANY ONTO MALCOLM JONES! Bethany takes down Malcolm and Malcolm is sitting against the ropes and Bethany walks over and bends down and grabs him by the throat! WOAH!! Bethany has a look of anger in her eyes as she is doing this to Malcolm!
Dr. Bethany Blue(As she’s choking Malcolm): YOU MADE ME DO THIS!!! THIS IS YOUR FAULT ALEXIS!!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV–COME ON BACK IT UP BETHANY NOW!
Rich Russillo: Did you hear the name she said tho? I think she might be imagining someone else in there.
James Peters: Bethany with a face full of rage backs up thanks to the referee and she sees Malcolm on the other end of the ring pulling himself up in the corner. BETHANY RUNS AT MALCOLM IN THE CORNER! But Malcolm gets his feet up stopping Bethany! Malcolm runs to Bethany from the corner and connects with a swinging neckbreaker! MALCOLM FOLLOWS THIS UP WITH A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! MALCOLM MAKES THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: Bethany gets the shoulder up! Malcolm gets back up to his feet and measures up the Doc now for his next move in this matchup! Bethany makes it back to her feet and turns around and Malcolm is waiting for her with a kick to the midsection! Malcolm places Bethany between his legs, but before we know what Malcolm was planning to do–BETHANY DRIVES MALCOLM INTO THE CORNER ONCE MORE! Bethany once again angrily begins striking Malcolm in the face with elbow strikes! Bethany picks Malcolm up and places him up on the top rope! Bethany climbs up to the top rope with Malcolm now! Bethany throws a right hand at Malcolm but Malcolm responds with a right hand of his own! Both competitors are exchanging blows on the top rope, who’s gonna get the advantage is the question now! Doctor rakes Malcolm by the eyes and now Bethany is in control of Malcolm! Bethany grabs the head of Malcolm–SHE’S GOING FOR THE REMEDY FROM THE TOP ROPE! BUT MALCOLM PUSHES BETHANY TO THE MAT FROM THE TOP FROM HER BACKSIDE! BETHANY IS UP TO HER FEET QUICKLY AND MALCOLM LEAPS FROM THE TOP ROPE–MALCOLM CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING HURRICANRANA! BETHANY IS STUNNED NOW!
Persephone: YYYAAAWWWNNNN!!!!!! CHRIST THIS IS TORTURE!!! BUT BETHANY IS UP AND MALCOLM RUNS TO THE ROPES WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! C-NOTE!!!! BUT NO!! BETHANY SAVES HERSELF BY KICKING MALCOLM IN THE FACE! RUNNING DROPKICK FROM BETHANY AND THAT SENDS MALCOLM THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE ONCE AGAIN!
James Peters: Bethany takes a few steps back and goes for a suicide dive through the middle rope–BUT MALCOLM CATCHES HER! MALCOLM CAUGHT BETHANY AND TURNS IT INTO A SPINNING SIDE SLAM RIGHT ONTO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR! Malcolm picks up Bethany and tosses her back into the ring, Malcolm climbs up the apron with urgency and climbs up the top rope! Malcolm stands and balances himself on the top rope….MALCOLM GOES FOR THE FIVE STAR SWAG SPLASH!!!! BUT BETHANY GOT HER KNEES UP!! BETHANY TRANSITIONS THIS INTO A PIN!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm escapes out of it, both competitors race to get their feet but Bethany got to hers first and rams her knee into the side of Malcolm’s head! Malcolm is on one knee and Bethany grabs the head of Malcolm and drives her knee into the nose of Malcolm over and over again! The mean streak in Bethany tonight is something else, let me tell you! Bethany with a knife edge chop that causes Malcolm to stumble into the corner, and now Bethany runs once more at Malcolm in the corner–BETHANY CONNECTS AS SHE DRIVES HER KNEES HIGH IN THE CHEST OF MALCOLM IN THE CORNER! BETHANY FOLLOWS THAT UP BY CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG FROM THE CORNER! BETHANY FLIPS MALCOLM OVER AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Persephone: OH COME ON!!!! THESE TWO ARE TAKING UP PRECIOUS AIR TIME FOR OUR MAIN EVENT FEATURING REXY!!! :noah:
Rich Russillo: Bethany stands up and that mean streak, you can see it on her face, she’s lying in wait to strike here on Malcolm as Malcolm stirs back to his feet! Malcolm turns around and Bethany grabs Malcolm by the head–JUMPING ENZIGUIRI TO THE BACK OF BETHANY’S HEAD! BETHANY IS DAZED NOW AS SHE’S ON SPAGHETTI LEGS….ROUNDHOUSE KICK NOW FROM MALCOLM AND BETHANY DROPS TO BOTH KNEES! Malcolm stands on both feet and runs to the ropes…..WOO WALK!! THE CURB STOMP!!!
James Peters: NO!! BETHANY ROSE FROM THE MAT AND CATCHES MALCOLM WITH “SAY AHHH!!!!” THE MANDIBLE CLAW IS APPLIED NOW ON MALCOLM JONES! MALCOLM IS WAILING HIS ARMS TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF THIS RIGHT NOW, BUT I DON’T THINK HE CAN!! Malcolm Jones’ eyes glaze over, I THINK HE’S OUT!! OH MY GOD! MALCOLM JONES OUT OF PURE DESPERATION BACK BODY DROPS BETHANY OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR! Nice on the spot thinking there from MJ! MJ is clutching his throat trying to get some air as he pulls himself up….LOOK, WHAT THE HELL?!
Persephone: NURSE GOLDSTEIN?!?! I thought she packed her stuff and left Bethany this past week, at least I think. I was barely paying attention.
(Nurse Goldstein enters the ring and steps up to Malcolm Jones. Malcolm after a moment cracks a smile. After a brief stare, Nurse Goldstein pulls out a can of strawberry jello from her back pocket. She opens the Jell-O and pours it on the head of Malcolm Jones.)
Nurse Goldstein(no mic): HOW DO YOU LIKE IT HUH?!?!?!?!
(Malcolm’s grin is still on his face as Jell-O drips down his head. He moves his finger to his head and then puts his finger in his mouth tasting the Jell-O.)
Malcolm Jones(as he gives a shoulder shrug): :notbad:
James Peters: UMMMM…but LOOK! Bethany is on the apron and calls the referee over, and during this NURSE GOLDSTEIN SLAPS MALCOLM JONES! Malcolm’s grin disappears as Goldstein fears the worst! GOLDSTEIN HAULS ASS OUT OF THE RING AND MALCOLM IS ON HER TAIL! Malcolm said during the week he was prepared to fight two ladies like he will next weekend at Fighting Spirit! MALCOLM ALMOST HAS GOLDSTEIN–COOODDDDDEEEEE BBBBLLUUUUEEE!!!! MALCOLM RAN RIGHT INTO IT!!! BETHANY AS QUICK AS SHE CAN PICKS UP MALCOLM AND PLACES HIM INSIDE THE RING AND SHE CRAWLS IN AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM JONES GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! I THINK IF BETHANY GOT HIM BACK IN THE RING A SPLIT SECOND EARLIER, SHE WOULD BE CELEBRATING A MONUMENTAL WIN RIGHT NOW! Bethany walks up to Malcolm and tries getting him back to his feet now, Bethany’s having a hard time getting him up as he seems like dead weight. Malcolm pushes Bethany away and throws a forearm! Bethany throws a forearm of her own! BETHANY! MALCOLM! BETHANY! MALCOLM! Both competitors stumble back but turn around quickly…and BOTH COMPETITORS RUN INTO A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE ON ONE ANOTHER! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN AND IT’S A RACE TO SEE WHO GETS TO THEIR FEET FIRST! Bethany uses the ropes as leverage and pulls herself up! She is begging for Malcolm to get up now–OH MY GOD….LOOK AT THE TITANTRON!!
(The titantron plays Alexis Chambers and Jake Smith’s kiss on Showdown two weeks ago. It plays once again. The third time it plays in slow motion. After that, Bethany is in the ring in a trance. She doesn’t know whether to burst into tears or explode in anger.)
Persephone: Wait….who’s even controlling the tron?!
(The titantron changes from the kiss video, to a picture. The picture sees Alexis Chambers and Jake Smith in a parking lot, holding hands in casual attire both with bandages on some parts of their bodies. The date on the bottom of the photo is marked in white lettering “5-23-2020” which was last night’s Odyssey event.)
(The camera pans over to see Nurse Goldstein shocked as she fears what is going to happen next. Bethany still stands in the ring still as a statue.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: HOLY SHIT! MY EARS!!! BETHANY HAS GONE NUTS RIGHT NOW! BETHANY GOES TO THE REFEREE AND BEGINS PUSHING HIM AND HITTING HIM ASKING WHO IS CONTROLLING THE TRON! BETHANY GOES BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING STILL SCREAMING LIKE A MENTAL PATIENT! THE REF CALLS FOR THE DISQUALIFICATION!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Persephone: Well at least that’s over and it’s a DQ win for Malcolm…NOW IT’S ALMOST TIME FOR–
(Dr. Bethany Blue walks up to Persephone and yanks her by her hair and begins screaming at her.)
Dr Bethany Blue: YOU’RE GONNA PAY!!!!!!!
Persephone: I’M NOT ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!?!
Dr. Bethany Blue: YOUR HAIR IS THE SAME EXACT HAIR COLOR AS HERS GOSH DARN IT!! AHHH!!!!!!!
Persephone: :whoa: !!!!!!
(Nurse Goldstein bear hugs Doc and pulls her away from Persephone. Nurse is trying her very best to talk to Bethany and calm her down a little bit. She bites Goldstein’s hand and breaks free! Bethany runs to the steps and pushes the steel steps over before walking to the announce desk and throwing monitors and papers everywhere.)
(Security comes down and both security and Goldstein have a tight hold of her as they drag her backstage. Bethany is crying out in tears as she’s being dragged.)
Nurse Goldstein: IT’S GONNA BE OKAY DOC! YOU NEVER NEEDED HIM! REMEMBER THAT!!
(Security and Goldstein successfully get Bethany Blue out of the arena, then the camera pans to Malcolm Jones just standing in the ring amused by what he just saw.)
Malcolm Jones: I for real just don’t get these bitches.
(“Scenario” by Pop Smoke hits as Malcolm exits the ring and the camera fades elsewhere.)
(The camera cuts backstage in the women’s locker room, where the one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions Raven Roberts is taping her wrists and getting ready for the upcoming match against Extreme Valentine. All of a sudden, a familiar face enters the scene as Raven Roberts throws the wrist tape away and stands up.)
(The camera pans to show Ms. Extreme as she walks in the locker room. Much like Raven, she is already dressed to compete as their match is up next.)
Raven Roberts: So this is it, isn’t it? Pain For Pride is right around the corner and here we are, chasing the same thing we both crave. I have been here for two years, but I feel as if I’ve been in this position for a lifetime. I’ve held that title before and I’ve been a contender too, now I feel like everything is coming to its closure.
Ms. Extreme: Aren’t you being a tad over dramatic here, Raven? I see it as a chance to beat the shit out of five other lovely women and beating the shit out of people is something I’ve been doing for the whole season. Lars Grier, Bethany Blue… and now this. Our Seasons have been a lot more similar than what people might think. We both held titles, we both lost them in grey area situations and we failed to get them back. Now we’re here, back to “square one” even though this “square one” doesn’t really feel like one. It’s been a rough few months for me and it’s not just about the title. What happened at Grand Rampage and during the following weeks was far beyond Wrestling… Shit got personal. You should know better than anyone what I have been through.
Raven Roberts: Yeah, and you think my Season has been a walk in the park? Being the Universal Women’s Champion meant everything to me. Calling it an emotional rollercoaster would be an understatement, I’ve been to the very top of the mountain and then sent down to my rock bottom in a matter of seconds. I’ve done the unthinkable when I won the title by cashing in my Cash in the Vault opportunity, I’ve defended it multiple times, even one week after I got married with Rex. I’ve recently won the Unified Tag Team Championships too with my husband. I’ve had my ups and downs, some might think that I should be satisfied with what I’ve accomplished so far, but I am far from being over. Trust me when I tell you this, Camille: I want this more than you because I need this more than you…
Ms. Extreme: Hold on just a minute, Raven! Girl, did you really just say that you need this more than me? You got it all twisted. I am the one who needs this more than you. I need to win the No Way Out match and move on to beat Minerva at Pain For Pride because that’s what I have to do in order to solidify myself as the most successful Ava in the company. I love my sister but I will not live in Cameron’s shadow, I am out here to prove that I can be more successful than her. So don’t come at me with your cheap talks because you should know better than anyone, when the fight is on, I never back down. I was born to do this. I strive in these situations. My competitive spirit craves them.
Raven Roberts: Your “competitive spirit”? Ha. You think you are the only one in this company with a competitive spirit? Let me tell you something, I have been…
(Camille raises her hand and looks down as Raven Roberts abruptly stops talking. Camille shakes her head in disappointment and then looks back up at Raven, this time with a smile on her face)
Ms. Extreme: What are we doing, Raven?
(Raven Roberts smiles back at Camille)
Raven Roberts: I don’t know, I really don’t know what’s going on in my head lately. I guess it’s true when we say that our year so far has been a crazy roller coaster ride. Now Pain For Pride is approaching and emotions are even higher…
Ms. Extreme: That’s true. But what’s also true is that in situations like these, friends is what we need more than anything else. You know you can always count on me, right? No matter what happens in the No Way Out match, the Beating Hearts of Voltage are FOREVER. Never forget who your friends are.
Raven Roberts: I agree and you can count on me too. Don’t take my determination for ingratitude. Let’s make no mistake about it, we both know there’s no length I wouldn’t go to in order to win the No Way Out match and become a two times Universal Women’s Champion at Pain For Pride. But when it’s all said and done, I will always remember who my friends are. The Beating Hearts of Voltage are indeed forever and this match is never going to change that, no matter how rough is going to be…
Ms. Extreme: Oh, trust me. It’s going to get really rough and I can absolutely, one hundred percent guarantee you I am going to beat the shit out of you come Fighting Spirit, just like I am going to do it tonight in the Main Event. But what happens tonight and next week is never, ever going to change or overshadow all the things we’ve been through together and what the Beating Hearts mean to me. I just want you to know that.
Raven Roberts: I understand. I can guarantee you I won’t be holding back either. After all, I know you better than any other No Way Out competitor. I know you want a fight from me and I’ll be sure to go all out at Fighting Spirit. I’ll give your “competitive spirit” the intensity it craves. And then we go back at being the friends we have always been. Sounds good?
Ms. Extreme: Sounds good to me. Oh and good luck for tonight, Champ.
(Raven Roberts turns her back around and is about to leave the scene, when she suddenly stops: Camille has grabbed her wrist and she is not letting her go. Raven Roberts turns back to face her with a rather confused look on her face)
Raven Roberts: Yes?
Ms. Extreme: No hug? No nothing? I wore a fucking dress to your wedding.
Raven Roberts: Oh!
(Raven Roberts smiles as she pulls Camille towards her and the two hug for a good ten seconds. Then Camille pats her back as Raven let’s her free again.)
Raven Roberts: See you in the ring.
(Raven Roberts picks up her Unified Tag Team Championship belt from the bench and leaves the scene as Camille looks on.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Bath and Body Works. Who doesn’t want warm vanilla sugar smelling hands?!)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is a tag team match, and it is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first….
(‘Dark Horses’ by Switchfoot hits, and soon after, the blue and red spotlights appear on the stage. Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts soon follow, as they step into their individual spotlights with the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships strapped around their waists. Both of them have smiles on their faces, proud of becoming the new Tag Team Champions, and soon after the two finally begin walking down the ramp and to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… At a combined weight of 377 pounds…. THEY ARE THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… REX MCALLISTER AND RAVEN ROBERTS, FIIIIIRRRREEE AAANDDD IIIIIIIIIIICCCEEEE!!!!!!!
James Peters: At Gateway to Glory these two scored their biggest win as a tag team as they dethroned Drizzy and Vizzy to become the new Unified Tag Team Champions. To say things are going their way would be an understatement, as Rex McAllister will be main eventing Pain for Pride against the EAW Champion, and if Raven Roberts wins the No Way Out match at Fighting Spirit, she will be facing the Universal Women’s Champion Minerva at the same event.
Rich Russillo: Tonight these two are taking on not just a very talented tag team, but two women who they might end up having to face soon enough. Raven and Ms. Extreme will have to face each other in the No Way Out match, meanwhile if Andrea Valentine defeats Mr. DEDEDE, Andrea and Rex will face each other at Pain for Pride. I am honestly very interested to see where this goes, and if this match will play a part in what happens next between the four.
Persephone: Who cares about Raven, Andrea, or Ms. Extreme? Rex McAllister is here. Rex McAllister is going to win.
(‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day follows, and Ms. Extreme begins walking out to the stage. She stops at the top of the ramp, and she begins to wait until ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX hits, and Andrea Valentine begins walking out with the EAW Championship on her shoulder. She meets Ms. Extreme at the top of the ramp, and the two finally begin making their way down the ramp, clearly focused on this match as they look right towards the tag team Champions.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… THE TEAM OF MISSSS EEEEXXXTTTRRREEEEMMMEEE, AND THE EAW CHAMPION, AAAANNNDDDRRREEEEAAAA VAAAAALLLEEENNNTTIIIIIINNNE!!!!!!
Persephone: Booooorrriiiiing. Obviously I’m rooting for Team Rex. These two are so bad, I mean didn’t the ginger chick have to whine to Captain Charisma just for a spot in the No Way Out match? Ridiculous.
James Peters: I wouldn’t call it whining. Ms. Extreme had a very valid reason to be upset at what Malcolm Jones did. Anyways, like them or not you can’t deny the talent of these two. Ms. Extreme is a former PURE Champion and Interwire Champion, and Andrea Valentine is literally the EAW Champion right now. I think this could be a pretty even match up.
Rich Russillo: That’s right. The only person in this match to have never been World Champion is Camille, and if she wins the No Way Out match she’ll have the opportunity to do exactly that. I’m excited to see where this match goes, so let’s start this already.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And now the main event match is underway! Fire and Ice taking on Extreme Valentine! It looks like Raven Roberts will be starting the match off with Andrea Valentine, and remember these two have faced off in a singles match a few months back, where Raven Roberts managed to get the win! Despite the winner though, it was an incredible match where both women gave it their all! Both Raven and Andrea locking up now, and it looks like the EAW Champion is able to take control of the match as she gets Raven in a headlock!
Rich Russillo: That headlock doesn’t last too long as Raven attempts a back suplex, but Andrea managed to land on her feet! Andrea now with an irish whip to the ropes, and Andrea attempts a headlock takedown but Raven is able to stand her ground, and run Andrea into the ropes to release the standing headlock that was already in place! Raven now, WITH AN ARMDRAG AS ANDREA BOUNCED OFF THE ROPES! Raven follows that armdrag up with a rear chinlock, and now it’s the EAW Champion that’s in trouble! It’s rare for a hold to end a match this early on, but this is the best opportunity to wear Andrea out, and make her less of a threat later on in the match. Even so, it looks like Andrea is already beginning to fight out of the hold!
Persephone: Ugh. Why isn’t Rex in the ring yet? I don’t care about these two. Especially Raven. Andrea is back to her feet since Raven sucks and clearly doesn’t really know how to apply a submission, and now Andrea dropped Raven with a very sloppy looking snapmare. Andrea now running the ropes, and she tried hitting Raven with a penalty kick but Raven ducked it before pulling Andrea down into a school boy. Andrea immediately kicked out, but Raven put her into a front facelock before hitting a snap suplex. How on Earth did that entire sequence of moves manage to be so uninteresting?
James Peters: WING BREAK- NO! Raven attempted to lock the Wing Breaker Fujiwara armbar in very early on, but Andrea quickly rolled onto her back and pulled Raven into a pin, which Raven kicked out of immediately! Raven is able to get back to her feet quicker than Andrea as Andrea was hit with that suplex moments ago, and now it looks like Raven is going for another suplex- BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET BEHIND RAVEN BEFORE HITTING A BACKSTABBER! That was a huge move to hit early on, but instead of going for the cover, Andrea makes the tag to Camille!
Rich Russillo: Raven uses the ropes to get back to her feet, but as soon as she does so Camille grabs both arms and connects with a dragon suplex, and there’s the bridging pin!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN KICKS OUT! Raven is able to get up to a knee, and that allows both of these women to lock up, just ahead of Fighting Spirit where they will more than likely have to fight once again! CAMILLE WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! RAVEN IS HURT, AND NOW CAMILLE GOES FOR A DDT- BUT RAVEN HITS CAMILLE WITH A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION TO STOP IT!
Persephone: This is so boring, why isn’t Rex in still? Camille just backed into Fire and Ice’s corner, and that allowed Raven to hit her with a forearm smash. Camille falling out of the corner now, and- YES! RAVEN TAGGED IN REXY! REXY IS IN, AND CAMILLE TRIED ATTACKING HIM ONCE HE GOT IN BUT REX DUCKED HER LARIAT! REX IS HITTING CAMILLE WITH MULTIPLE CHOPS, AND NOW HE RUNS THE ROPES! JUMPING LARIAT BY REX! Rex is so good, the only one in the match worth watching.
James Peters: Camille has managed to get back to her feet in the corner, and now Rex charges in- BUT CAMILLE HITS REX WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! These two have some in ring experience with each other as well. I still remember that hardcore iron man match these two had, and if you all remember Rex McAllister actually won that. I don’t know if Rex and Raven having a win over Andrea and Camille will play a factor in this match at all, but you can already tell this match will be great. Camille running the ropes, AND SHE HITS REX WITH A SINGLE LEG DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: Rex gets back to his feet and stumbles into the ropes, AND CAMILLE SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE! REX MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON AND NOW CAMILLE RUNS THE ROPES- ONLY TO BE MET WITH A HUGE SLINGSHOT SPEAR! REX PULLING HIMSELF THROUGH THE ROPES TO DELIVER THAT SPEAR, AND NOW REX GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: Camille manages to get the shoulder up! Rex definitely knows first hand just how tough Camille is, that spear looked brutal but it definitely won’t be enough to take Camille down this fast.
Persephone: Why not? Camille isn’t all that good. She lost to Rex in the iron man match and she’ll lose to Rex tonight. Or Andrea will. I don’t care, as long as Rex wins. Sexy Rexy now setting up for a figure four, but- ew.. Camille managed to kick him away. Camille gets back to her feet, and now she goes after Rex, but Rexy is so much better than Camille and he’s easily able to slip behind her! GERMAN SUPLEX- Oh come on.. Camille landed on her feet, and now she somehow managed to pull Rex down into a German suplex on her own.
James Peters: Rex is slowly getting back up, but it looks like Camille was ready for him to do that as she grabs him, AND CONNECTS WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! That exploder suplex caused Rex to roll back out onto the apron, and instead of running the ropes Camille tries to pull Rex up- BUT REX HITS CAMILLE WITH A FOREARM- JUST FOR CAMILLE TO RETALIATE WITH AN ENZUIGIRI, SENDING REX OFF OF THE APRON! REX DOESN’T TAKE LONG TO GET UP, BUT CAMILLE IS ALREADY TAKING OFF AND RUNNING THE ROPES! SUICIDE DI-
Rich Russillo: JUMPING KNEE BY REX! REX JUST HIT CAMILLE WITH A JUMPING KNEE JUST AS SHE FLEW THROUGH THE ROPES! THAT HAS TO BE LIGHTS OUT FOR HER! REX ROLLING CAMILLE BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE SLIDING IN HIMSELF, AND NOW THERE’S THE TAG TO RAVEN, AND IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE REX PLANS TO EXIT THE RING YET AS HE PICKS CAMILLE UP AND CONNECTS WITH A HUGE POWERSLAM IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! RAVEN CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND AS REX EXITS THE RING RAVEN HITS CAMILLE WITH A BEAUTIFUL MOONSAULT! THE COVER BY RAVEN!
ONE! TWO!! T-
Persephone: Yuck Camille actually kicked out of that. Ah well. At least I get to look at Rex for longer. Unfortunately he’s not the one in the ring anymore so I can’t actually be interested in what’s going on right now. Uhh, Raven has the wing breaker locked in but to be honest I don’t really want Camille to tap out. If she taps out now Sexy Rexy is gonna leave with Raven and I won’t be able to see Rex until Fighting Spirit.
James Peters: Persephone I promise nobody cares about your needs right now! CAMILLE IS CLEARLY IN TROUBLE HERE AS THE WING BREAKER IS LOCKED IN AND CAMILLE- WAIT NO! CAMILLE ALREADY MANAGED TO ESCAPE THE WING BREAKER, AND SHE WRAPS HER ARM AROUND RAVEN’S THROAT AND LOCKS IN A SLEEPER HOLD! RAVEN LOOKS LIKE SHE’S THE ONE IN TROUBLE RIGHT NOW, SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO RIGHT NOW AND CAMILLE HAS THE BODY SCISSORS LOCKED IN! CLEARLY THESE FOUR KNOW EACH OTHER WELL SO IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT THEY KNOW HOW TO COUNTER EACH OTHER’S MOVES LIKE THIS, BUT THIS MAY ACTUALLY BE THE END OF THE MATCH RIGHT HERE!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, RAVEN JUST TURNED HERSELF ONTO HER STOMACH, AND NOW SHE IS GETTING BACK UP TO HER FEET! RAVEN HAS MANAGED TO GET BACK TO HER FEET WITH CAMILLE ON HER BACK, AND NOW RAVEN BACK PEDALS RIGHT INTO THE CORNER, SMASHING CAMILLE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT I DON’T THINK RAVEN REALIZED SHE SENT CAMILLE RIGHT INTO EXTREME VALENTINE’S CORNER AS ANDREA JUST TAGGED HERSELF IN! ANDREA CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS RAVEN SLOWLY TURNS AROUND, AND ANDREA HITS RAVEN WITH A DIVING METEORA!! WHAT A MOVE BY ANDREA, AND THERE’S THE COVER!!
ONE! TWO!! THR-
Persephone: Okay Raven kicked out. For once I’m glad. Now tag Rex in already. Wait no. Raven is trying to crawl up to her feet using the ropes, but Andrea is running the ropes- and oh come on she just dropkicked Raven out of the ring. Why? Andrea stepping out onto the apron, and Raven got up and ran towards her, but Andrea kicked her away, before running and diving off the apron with another meteora. These two know what I want and they’re purposely keeping Rex out of the match. What did I do to deserve this?
James Peters: I really doubt these two are worrying about you Persephone. Anyways Andrea rolled Raven back into the ring before heading back up to the top rope, and Raven is somehow beginning to find her way back up to her feet, but it looks like that’s exactly what Andrea wants here as she continues to wait for Raven to get up! Raven is back on her feet, AND NOW ANDREA DIVES! V-DAY- NO! RAVEN RUNS INTO THE CORNER TO AVOID THE MOVE, MEANWHILE ANDREA ROLLS BACK UP TO HER FEET! BOTH WOMEN CHARGE RIGHT TOWARDS EACH OTHER, BUT RAVEN GETS THE UPPER HAND WITH A HUGE LARIAT!
Rich Russillo: That lariat was insane. Andrea managed to get back up to a knee- ONLY TO BE MET WITH THE FACELIFT!! RAVEN JUST HIT ANDREA WITH THE FACELIFT, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER, IS THAT ALREADY IT FOR EXTREME VALENTINE!?!?
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Rich Russillo: NO!! ANDREA MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!! Raven just caught Andrea with the facelift out of nowhere but that wasn’t enough to keep her down for the three count! Raven now dragging Andrea to her corner, and there’s the tag to Rex!
Persephone: Omg omg YES! Wait no, get out of the ring Raven. Raven is pulling Andrea up, and I guess she’s looking for that Frostbite double team move where she bulldogs the opponent onto Raven’s knee, but look! This is why Raven should’ve just left the ring! Andrea managed to throw Raven off of her before the bulldog could connect, and right into Rexy! All she had to do was get out of the ring and wait her turn, but no. Now Andrea is back in control of this match and Rexy is the one in trouble. What an idiot.
James Peters: Well, like you said Andrea does seem to have the upper hand now, AS SHE IMMEDIATELY GOES AFTER REX AND HITS A STEP-UP SENTON! Andrea not going for the cover, instead it looks like she’s aiming to beat Rex in his own game as she locks in a Boston crab! Remember, if Andrea defeats Mr. DEDEDE at Fighting Spirit, what we’re seeing in the ring right now will be our Pain for Pride main event! Rex is in a bit of trouble right now, he really needs to either get to the ropes or get out of the submission as fast as possible! Rex is way bigger than Andrea, but a submission like this will hurt no matter who’s in it!
Rich Russillo: Rex manages to turn onto his back! Rex freeing his legs now, and he kicks Andrea away! Rex manages to get back to his feet, but Andrea charges right back towards him- RIGHT INTO A SPINEBUSTER! REX JUST PLANTED ANDREA WITH THAT SPINEBUSTER, AND NOW HE’S GOING FOR THE COVER TO POTENTIALLY PUT THIS MATCH AWAY!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT BY ANDREA! I have to admit I am a bit shocked Andrea managed to kick out of that one!
Persephone: I’m sure Rex just let go of her or something. Rex is the best wrestler ever, nobody should be able to kick out of his moves. You can’t blame the guy for just wanting to have a bit of fun.
James Peters: I’m one hundred percent sure that’s not what’s happening here-
Persephone: Well I say that is what’s happening. Rex now is trying to lock in his superior boston crab, but Andrea clearly doesn’t want any of that so she quickly kicked Rex away. Can’t blame her, Rex is the strongest man on the planet and being put into a single one of his submissions is probably the most painful thing you could experience.
James Peters: Rex goes right back towards Andrea despite being kicked away, and he easily manages to pick her up off the ground, BEFORE TOSSING HER ACROSS THE RING WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! ANDREA FLEW, BUT REX DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S FINISHED YET! REX DEADLIFTING ANDREA OFF THE MAT, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX, AND REX STILL ISN’T FINISHED! REX GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, STILL HOLDING ANDREA, AND HE HITS A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX! REX GETTING BACK UP, AND NOW HE GOES FOR A THIRD-
Rich Russillo: BUT ANDREA ELBOWS REX IN THE FACE! REX FINALLY LETS GO OF ANDREA, AND ANDREA QUICKLY GRABS REX BY THE ARM! XOXO BY ANDREA!! ANDREA QUICKLY BACKING INTO HER CORNER, AND SHE MAKES THE TAG TO CAMILLE! CAMILLE ENTERS THE RING, AND INSTEAD OF GOING FOR THE COVER, SHE PICKS REX UP IN A FRONT FACELOCK, AND SHE HITS REX WITH A TWIST OF FATE!! REX JUST TOOK TWO HUGE MOVES FROM ANDREA AND CAMILLE, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER! REX MIGHT HONESTLY BE OUT OF THIS ONE!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Persephone: YES!! REX GOT THE SHOULDER UP!! REX ISN’T GOING TO LOSE TO THESE TWO! NEVER! Camille looks surprised that Rex kicked out, but you know who’s not surprised at all? Me. Rex is the best. Camille is picking Rex up, and it looks like she’s trying to hit a second twist of fate, BUT REX SLIPS DOWN AND PULLS HER DOWN INTO A ROLL UP!
Persephone: Oh well she kicked out, and Rex tried to hit Camille with a knee to the face, but Camille avoided it. Camille attempting a kick to the midsection, but Rex managed to catch her foot before spinning her around, and this time he connected with the jumping knee!
James Peters: Rex isn’t going for the cover yet, and is instead pulling Camille up to the top rope. REX NOW FOLLOWING CAMILLE UP TO THE TOP, AND THIS MAY ACTUALLY BE BAD! CAMILLE CLEARLY DOESN’T HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE SHE IS AFTER THAT KNEE, AND NOW REX IS LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE OFF OF THAT IN A BIG WAY! REX WITH THE FRONT FACE LOCK AT THE TOP- BUT CAMILLE IS FIGHTING REX OFF OF HER! CAMILLE WITH MULTIPLE PUNCHES, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND NOW SHE FINALLY PUSHES REX OFF OF THE TOP ROPE! CAMILLE NOW GETTING INTO POSITION, AND-
Rich Russillo: AND REX JUST SPRINTED UP TO THE TOP ROPE!! REX JUST RAN UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND GRABBED MS. EXTREME, AND THERE’S A HUGE SUPERPLEX!! WE DON’T SEE MOVES LIKE THAT VERY OFTEN, BUT REX JUST PULLED IT OUT OF HIS ARSENAL HERE TONIGHT!! REX MANAGES TO PULL HIMSELF ONTO CAMILLE, THE COVER BY THE 2020 GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT THIS TIME IT’S CAMILLE THAT MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!
Persephone: How?? How did she even kick out of that?? It makes no sense to me. I’m not scared though. I know Rex is going to find a way to win this. Well, he looks pretty hurt after that and is using the ropes to get up, but I’m sure he’s got it. See look, Rex now is pulling Camille up, and it looks like he’s setting up for a powerbomb because Rex is clearly the strongest person in the match- Wait no, how? Camille is trying to fight out, shouldn’t she be dead already?
James Peters: CAMILLE IS DOING HER BEST TO FIGHT OUT OF THE POWERBOMB ATTEMPT FROM REX, AND SHE DOES IT! CAMILLE MANAGES TO SEND REX INTO THE CORNER OF FIRE AND ICE WITH A HURRICANRANA, BUT THAT MIGHT NOW BE WANT CAMILLE REALLY WANTS TO DO HERE AS SHE LOOKS OUT OF IT, MEANWHILE RAVEN IS RIGHT THERE FOR REX TO MAKE THE TAG! THAT MIGHT’VE BEEN A DESPERATE MOVE, BUT IT DEFINITELY DIDN’T GO CAMILLE’S WAY HERE AS REX MANAGES TO MAKE THE TAG TO RAVEN! RAVEN IS BACK IN THE MATCH AS CAMILLE SLOWLY BEGINS TO GET BACK UP!
Rich Russillo: RUNNING FOREARM SMASH BY RAVEN ROBERTS! CAMILLE MANAGES TO GET BACK UP, BUT RAVEN CHARGES TOWARDS HER AND IRISH WHIPS HER INTO THE ROPES BEFORE HITTING A SINGLE LEG DROPKICK! CAMILLE USES THE ROPES TO PULL HERSELF UP ONE MORE TIME, AND NOW RAVEN CHARGES TOWARDS HER- BUT CAMILLE MANAGES TO PULL DOWN THE ROPES TO SEND RAVEN OUT OF THE RING! CAMILLE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO SEND RAVEN OUT OF THE RING, AND NOW THE REFEREE IS BEGINNING THE COUNT AS CAMILLE TAKES SOME TIME TO RECOVER! Is this match gonna end in countout, will Raven make it back into the ring, or is Camille gonna break up the count!
Persephone: Well Camille broke up the count so she could bring Raven back into the ring, and I don’t really like what Camille is doing now. Raven please be a competent tag team partner and don’t cost Rex the match. Raven is managing to get back to her feet, but Camille just dived and hit the Glass Ceiling- oh wait no she didn’t. Raven just pulled Camille down into a roll up.
Persephone: Camille kicked out, and Raven tried to hit the Facelift immediately after but Camille ducked it.
James Peters: Raven attempting to hit a roundhouse kick instead, BUT CAMILLE BLOCKS IT! CAMILLE GETS BACK UP AND ATTEMPTS AN IRISH WHIP, BUT RAVEN TURNS IT AROUND INTO AN IRISH WHIP OF HER OWN, SENDING CAMILLE INTO THE CORNER! RAVEN CHARGES IN, AND SHE HITS A FOREARM SMASH, CAUSING CAMILLE TO STUMBLE OUT OF THE CORNER! RAVEN NOW PULLING HERSELF UP TO THE TOP ROPE- BUT BEFORE SHE COULD DO ANYTHING CAMILLE TAKES HER DOWN WITH A TURNBUCKLE HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! That was a mouthful to say, but it might’ve gotten the job done as Raven looks out of it! Camille has been in the ring for a while here, and now she might just finish the match!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!! HOW DID SHE DO IT!? CAMILLE IS SHOCKED, SOMEHOW RAVEN ROBERTS IS STILL IN THIS MATCH!! Camille wasting no time though, as she immediately picks Raven up and drags her into Extreme Valentine’s corner before making the tag to Andrea! Andrea running the ropes as Camille holds Raven in place, AND WHAT A TAG TEAM MOVE THAT WAS! ANDREA WITH A DROPKICK TO THE FACE, MEANWHILE CAMILLE CONNECTED WITH A LEG SWEEP! This time it’s Andrea going for the cover as Camille leaves the ring!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Persephone: SEXY REXY BROKE UP THE PIN! That was only fair to be honest. Camille stayed in the ring when she wasn’t supposed to, so Rex got involved when Andrea went for the pin. Guess Andrea is gonna have to find a different way to do it if she wants to pin Raven, since we all know she’s never pinning Rex?
James Peters: What do you mean we? I think this is a very equal match, it really can go any way. Actually, forget it. Anyways, Andrea is pulling Raven up to her feet, and she hits Raven with a huge knee lift! Now it’s Raven that’s been in the ring for a bit, and at the moment she might really need to make a tag! ANDREA WITH ANOTHER KNEE! ANDREA NOW GRABBING RAVEN’S ARM, AND SHE SETS UP FOR THE XOXO BUT RAVEN GRABS ANDREA’S FOOT BEFORE SHE COULD PUT IT TO HER FACE! RAVEN WITH A HUGE KICK TO ANDREA’S MIDSECTION, TAKING HER TO THE MAT! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN, AND NOW RAVEN IS TRYING TO CRAWL TO REX BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO GRAB ONTO HER FOOT!
Rich Russillo: It’s obvious that Rex getting back into this would be bad for Extreme Valentine, so now Andrea is beginning to get back to her feet, doing everything she can to pull Raven away from Rex- BUT RAVEN TURNS HERSELF AROUND AND KICKS ANDREA AWAY! RAVEN TURNING HER ATTENTION BACK TO REX, AND THERE’S THE TAG! ANDREA GOING AFTER REX AS SOON AS HE GETS INTO THE RING, BUT REX DUCKS HER LARIAT ATTEMPT BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! SPEAR BY REX!!! THAT SPEAR CONNECTS, AND ANDREA HAS TO USE THE ROPES TO PULL HERSELF BACK UP!
Persephone: Sexy Rexy charging towards Andrea- but yuck! Andrea just kicked Rex in the face, and now she sets up for the Atomic Blonde, but Rexy manages to grab the ropes to stop that from happening! That dumb blonde just fell flat onto her face! Rexy picking her up from the mat, and it looks like he’s trying to go for a suplex, but somehow Andrea managed to knee Rex in the head and get out of it. Andrea running the ropes, and she goes for a handspring back elbow, BUT REXY CATCHES HER IN MID AIR AND HITS A GERMAN SUPLEX!
James Peters: That was an amazing counter by Rex! Somehow Andrea still has it in her to make her way back to a knee, AND NOW REX RUNS THE ROPES, THE REX EFFECT- NO! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX BY ANDREA!! ANDREA JUST DROPPED REX WITH THE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX, AND NOW BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN! If this is what Pain for Pride is gonna look like, I honestly can’t wait! Of course, there’s no guarantee that Andrea WILL defeat Mr. DEDEDE, but we’re seeing right in front of us just how talented that woman is.
Rich Russillo: Andrea slowly rolls out to the apron, and pulls herself up to the top rope! Andrea now waiting for Rex to get back to his feet, and I think Andrea might be ready to finally finish this! Rex is slowly getting back up just like Andrea wants, AND NOW ANDREA GOES FOR THE V-DAY- BUT REX CATCHES HIM!! REX JUST CAUGHT ANDREA, AND HE HAS HER IN A POWERBOMB POSITION!! REX HAS ANDREA IN A POWERBOMB POSITION- BUT ANDREA ROLLS THROUGH INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN, ANDREA’S GONNA STEAL IT!!
Persephone: Nope! Rex kicked out immediately because he’s just that good, and he hits Andrea with a kick to the chest, taking her down! If anyone is going to finish the match, it’s Rexy! Rex pulling Andrea up before delivering an irish whip, but Jesus Christ, as soon as he does Andrea kicks him in the midsection. I don’t know what she’s going for as she runs the ropes, but clearly it wasn’t gonna be anything very good seeing as Rex was able to hit Andrea with a back body drop just as she bounced off the ropes!
James Peters: Andrea looks completely out of it at this point. I think Fire and Ice have got this one in the bag. Rex pulling Andrea up now, and it looks like he’s ready to tag Raven back in, probably to finish this match- BUT WAIT!! WHAT!? ANDREA PULLS REX DOWN INTO A SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners…. THE TEAM OF MIISSSS EEEEXXXTTTRRREEEEMMMEEE, AND THE EAW CHAMPION, AAANNNDDDRRRREEEAAAAA VVAAAALLLLEEENNNTTIIIIINNEEE!!!!!
James Peters: ANDREA DID IT AGAIN!! ONCE AGAIN ANDREA MANAGED TO STEAL A WIN FROM REX!! Rex is absolutely shocked, and so is Raven and Camille! Even Andrea looks a bit surprised that she got the win there, and so am I! Last time Rex and Andrea met in the ring Andrea beat Rex this same exact way! If Andrea does get past Mr. DEDEDE, this will be something Rex really needs to watch out for at Pain for Pride!
Rich Russillo: That is a pretty big “if” though. Mr. DEDEDE is almost an entirely different beast than everyone else. It’s no easy feat defeating that man, and honestly Fire and Ice had this match won at the end until Andrea rolled Rex up. Otherwise though, this was all around an amazing tag team match. All four competitors brought their best foot forward, and put on great showings before their upcoming matches at Fighting Spirit.
Persephone: Are you serious…? Once again Rex was screwed over. This is so stupid. I can’t believe I sat through all these other idiots wrestling just for Rex to lose.
(‘Roll With Me’ hits, and both Andrea and Rex get back to their feet, Andrea seeming a bit relieved, meanwhile Rex looks shocked. Afterwards, both Camille and Raven enter the ring, before the referee hands Rex, Raven, and Andrea their Championships. The referee raises Andrea and Camille’s arms, and afterwards Rex walks up to Andrea.)
James Peters: Wow, it looks like Rex is actually offering Andrea a handshake!
Rich Russillo: And Andrea obliged! Andrea and Rex shaking hands, what a great sign of sportsmanship to close out Voltage!
Persephone: I can’t believe this. Ah well, at least Rex will beat Cage, I’m sure he will.
James Peters: Speaking of which, it looks like that’s all for tonight, so we’ll see you all at Fighting Spirit! Goodnight everyone!
(All four of the competitors in the ring hold each other’s arms up as the camera begins to fade out for the final time tonight. Losing is obviously frustrating, but all four of the people in the ring clearly have that much respect for each other, especially seeing what they have been through the past season.)
